On Death Penalty
In this “On” Series, I will be conducting in-depth research on different institutions, ideas and concepts, and policies — this way we can all gain a better understanding at how they all effect us.  This week we’re looking at the Death Penalty. The main reason for this episode is discussing the issues surrounding the inherent constitutionality of the death penalty. Further getting into its racial implications, and drawing connections between older American extrajudicial practices and today’s governmental functions. Drawing this parallel is to uncover the true ills in the background of the Death Penalty.

A path to enhanced mobility
We first hear an interview I did back in October 2019 with Josh Anderson, Host of the Assistive Technology Update podcast. We discussed the tech start-up that I worked for, their philosophy, and the technology. Further, we get into the concept of tech leaving people behind and how that will affect us in the future.

China, Social Credit, TikTok
Discussed are the Chinese Social Credit system and the implications their past has on their use of this technology. Some of the topics that are discussed include Chinese history, an enlightening conversation I had with a Chinese woman, and my vote for the most influential video of 2019, which comes from an unlikely competitor. In closing, I will be discussing the implications this whole situation has on the United States.
