After the race, Vonn said it would be her final Olympic downhill. (Published Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018) "I'm a driven person," said Vonn, who has 1.6 million Instagram followers and, at the height of her career in 2013, was worth $3 million, according to Forbes.

click to enlarge Anson Stevens-Bollen, Santa Fe Reporter Fake news is not a new thing. With the return of its annual list of censored stories in Censored 2019: Fighting the Fake News Invasion, Project Censored’s vivid cover art recalls H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds. The situation today may feel as desolate as the cover art suggests. “But Censored 2019 is a book about fighting fake news,” editors Andy Lee Roth and Mickey Huff observed in the book’s introduction. In the end, they argued that “critical media education — rather than censorship, blacklists, privatized fact-checkers, or legislative bans — is the best weapon for fighting the ongoing fake news invasion.” Project Censored’s annual list of 25 censored stories, which makes up the book’s lengthy first chapter, is one of the best resources one can have for such an education.

A cellphone can be as dangerous as a shiv inside a prison.Last Sunday, Tulsa World reporter Curtis Killman revealed the pervasive problem of cellphones inside Oklahoma’s prisons. Nearly 7,000 phones were confiscated in state and private prisons last year. You can only imagine how many are there and undiscovered.As Killman vividly showed, a cellphone allows prisoners to supervise illegal activities inside and outside prison walls. Prisoners with cellphones can organize escapes or order attacks on guards, other prisoners, police officers or witnesses.We have the technology to jam cellphones inside prisons, but a 1934 federal law prohibits its use and that isn’t the only complicating issue.First, there is the expense.
