Capital punishment in the United States

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

SUMMARY
=======
Capital punishment is a legal penalty in the United States, currently used by 30 states, the federal government, and the military. Its existence can be traced to the beginning of the American colonies. The United States is the only Western country currently applying the death penalty. It is one of 54 countries worldwide applying it, and was the first to develop lethal injection as a method of execution, which has since been adopted by five other countries. The Philippines has since abolished executions, and Guatemala has done so for civil offenses, leaving the USA one of 4 countries to use this method, along with China, Thailand, and Vietnam.
There were no executions in the United States between 1967 and 1977. In 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down capital punishment statutes in Furman v. Georgia, reducing all death sentences pending at the time to life imprisonment.Subsequently, a majority of states passed new death penalty statutes, and the court affirmed the legality of capital punishment in the 1976 case Gregg v. Georgia. Since then, more than 7,800 defendants have been sentenced to death; of these, more than 1,400 have been executed. A total of 161 who were sentenced to death in the modern era were exonerated before their execution. As of April 1, 2018, 2,743 are still on death row.

Tejano Talks 34 – “The Vaquero Capital of Texas.” – (2017)



Views:179|Rating:5.00|View Time:1:35Minutes|Likes:2|Dislikes:0
The South Texas town of Hebbronville is known as “The Vaquero Capital of Texas.”
It is located in Jim Hogg County 100 miles southwest of Corpus Christi and 50 miles southeast of Laredo.
Families in the Hebbronville area trace their roots back to the Spanish and Mexican land grants of the 19th century.
But Hebbronville has a much bigger legacy – education. At a time when educating the Tejano children was not important in Texas, this community founded in 1883, stepped up and dismissed the myth that Tejanos did not care about education.
Realizing the importance of education, Tejano ranch owners opened schools for their children and their vaqueros. (Children of Rancho El Colorado, owned by the Guerra family).
Educators were sought to teach children in English and Spanish. (Children for La Violeta Ranch).
The students of Rancho Nuevo owned by the Martinez family were an example of that commitment to education held by the Tejanos
In 1897 the community took that commitment a step further when Tejano business leaders founded El Colegio Altamirano. Sixteen students registered that year – 12 boys and four girls between the ages of 9 to 12 years old.
The school was opened to all children and not limited to children who lived in a rancho. Enrollment averaged about 100 students annually. Its students transferred successfully into the Jim Hogg County pubic school system which opened in the 1920s.
El Colegio Altamirano taught art, music, discipline, the social graces as well reading, writing and arithmetic. The first “profesor” was Don Rosendo Barrera. Señorita Emilia Dávila , shown here on the left with her class, is believed to be the first woman teacher.
The school had much rigor and final exams for each grade level were presented by students in front of their peers and the school board.
Using their own economic means, the Tejanos of Jim Hogg County instilled in their children the values and beliefs of their ancestors. Simultaneously, they provided their children with educational opportunities that would ensure their place in mainstream Anglo society and public schools.
The building still stands on E. Santa Clara Street across from Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church and Scotus College, once a seminary for Franciscan priests It serves as a HeadStart Program.
“El Colegio Altamirano” closed in 1958, but it stands as a model for educational opportunities for Tejanos and should erase the notion that Tejanos, Mexican Americans, did not care about their children’s education

Hey guys

Some highlights of Salt Lake City. A place with beautiful mountains and buildings. Definitely a place worth visiting.

‘Salt Lake City is the capital and the most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Utah. With an estimated population of 190,884 in 2014, the city is the core of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which has a population of 1,153,340 (2014 estimate). Salt Lake City is further situated within a larger metropolis known as the Salt Lake City–Ogden–Provo Combined Statistical Area. This region is a corridor of contiguous urban and suburban development stretched along an approximately 120-mile (190 km) segment of the Wasatch Front, comprising a population of 2,423,912 as of 2014. It is one of only two major urban areas in the Great Basin (the other is Reno, Nevada).

The world headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) is located in Salt Lake City and the city’s street grid system is based on the temple constructed by the Church at its center. The city was originally founded in 1847 by Brigham Young, and other followers of the Church, who were seeking to escape religious persecution in the mid-western United States. These Mormon pioneers, as they would come to be known, at first encountered an arid, inhospitable valley that they then extensively irrigated and cultivated, thereby establishing the foundation to sustain the area’s large population of today.

Due to its proximity to the Great Salt Lake, the city was originally named “Great Salt Lake City”; however, the word “great” was dropped from the official name in 1868 by the 17th Utah Territorial Legislature.

Immigration of international LDS members, mining booms, and the construction of the first transcontinental railroad initially brought economic growth, and the city was nicknamed the Crossroads of the West. It was traversed by the Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway, in 1913, and presently two major cross-country freeways, I-15 and I-80, intersect in the city. Salt Lake City has since developed a strong outdoor recreation tourist industry based primarily on skiing, and hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. It is the industrial banking center of the United States’

RIP Big Pun *LYRICS ARE BELOW*

big pun capital punishment lyrics onscreen and in description ( explicit uncut version high quality on screen hq hd HD HQ ) AyKayTV1

[Big Pun]
It’s mine; it’s all mine you understand
At least me and my peoples
Can you dig that
21st century, thought I’d never see it
Right around the corner, baby
Ours for the takin’
[Verse one: Big Pun]
I’ve seen child blossom to man
Some withered and turned to murderers
Led astray by the liars death glorifiers observin’ us
Watching us close, marketing toast, it’s eat or purchase
Purposely overtaxin’ the earnings
Nervous, burnin’ down the churches
They’re scared of us, rather beware than dare to trust
Throw us in jail, million dollar bail, left there to rust
Let’s call in order, give ourselves a chance to enhance broader
Advance to where minorities are the majority voter
Holdin’ my own, I’m livin’ alone in this cold world
My sister just bought a home without a loan, you go girl
She’s an exception, some people can leap through the oppression
See, me myself, I start flippin’ and fall victim to deep depression
I’m stressin’ the issue here, so we can gross the fiscal year
Tired of gettin fired and hired as a pistol-eer
There’s no longevity livin’ off negativity
Fuck it, I’d rather sell reefer than do pizza delivery
That’s how the city be, everybody gettin’ they hustle on
Judge singin’ death penalty like it’s his favorite fuckin’ song
Word is bond, takin’ my life you know they lovin’ it
God, F the government and it’s fuckin’ capital punishment
[Hook: Prospect]
Capital punishment, given by the government
System so organized they get to you and who you runnin’ with
Can’t live alone, watch for the spies and tapped phones
Totin’ the llello for life, the rightful heir to the throne
We come from Kings and Queens, people with dreams, Gods and Earths
For what it’s worth, we benefit the Earth with infinite worth
First it’s turnin tables, open our own labels
Disable the Republicans, then reverse capital punishment
[Verse Two: Big Pun]
I’ve seen it all up close, shit out the movies you’d be buggin’
My cousin Chuchi, barely a juve’, lost it and turned on the oven
He wasn’t playin’, blew out the flame and started inhalin’
Baring a secret too deep to keep on the street for sharin’
Wearin’ the virus, Acquired Immune Deficiency
Dishin’ his dick in every thick promiscuous fish in the sea
Listen to me, shit is rough in the ghetto
You bluff, blow your head off, fuck a snuff, we bust lead off
Get off your high horse, or die off like an extinction
Boriquans are like Mohicans, The Last of the Po’Ricans
We need some unity, fuck all the jeeps and jewelry
The maturity, keeps me six feet, above obscurity
The streets are deadly and everybody’s a desperado
I guess the motto we promise to let you homage in death your motto
Like Zorro, I mark my territory with a symbol
Not with a Z, but a P, cause Punishment’s what I resemble
I lend you this if it expands yours, for you and yours
A real man can’t fall, he stands tall
The Man’s claws are diggin in my back, I’m tryin to hit him back
Time to counteract, where my niggas at
[Hook]
[Verse Three: Prospect]
You like that, it’s Pun and Prospect
We hold nines, own more treasure than gold mines, makin progress
With Don Juan’s, there’s rules to be made, crews to be sprayed
Dues to be paid, nothin’ y’all can do to behave
We laid in the slums, made a cake out of crumbs
Even though the government, tryin to take out our sons
Rudy Gulliani trying to blind me, but I see reality
Was raised with the street mentallity
My strategy’s why my battery never die
The ghetto kept me wise, so I would never fall to the lies
It’s no surprise, but do or die if you want the glamour
Yeah, I want the glamour, laid up with cheese and trees in Atlanta
While Cuban’s smoked out like Ronald Isley with Havanas
The hammer in the palm, never shaky, calm handlers
This renegade blow through barricades like grenades
I turn the sun to shade, then the night back to day
Like the twenty-four hour rotation
I know the location, it’s just a little in-for-mation
From the Squad, bringing the Terror for the nine-era
And let it rain on your fine leather, nigga, what
