El 23 de julio, el Tratado de Cambridge fue firmado entre las autoridades municipales, organizaciones de derechos civiles y el Departamento de Justicia. El acuerdo estableció la integración inmediata en las escuelas y los hospitales, la construcción de viviendas públicas de bajo alquiler, el Departamento de Seguridad Laboral de Maryland y la Oficina de Correos comenzaron la contratación de trabajadores negros, el nombramiento de una Comisión de Relaciones Humanas y una enmienda a la constitución de la ciudad para acabar con la segregación de espacios públicos.

How-To Manage The Mass Of Information WE Encounter Each Day?
When WE use Social-Media, especially Twitter, lots of users know already about a PLN (Personal [Professional] LEARNing Network) and through it WE get a MASS of information on a daily base. So, not easy at all when people don’t know how-to organize that information…

One scene shared by all of the 20th century’s bloodiest conflicts might have been lifted straight from The Road Warrior, or a Beckett play: spectral landscape; buildings obliterated; blasted trees; lifeless wasteland. The photographs in this gallery, for instance—pictures that starkly reference every bleak, war-battered panorama from Gettysburg to Verdun to Stalingrad to Chosin Reservoir to Pork Chop Hill—were made in September, 1945, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.
But far from chronicling the aftermath of a sustained, slogging campaign, these pictures—none of which were published in LIFE magazine—depict the devastation produced in a few unspeakably violent seconds. Here, LIFE.com presents pictures from both cities taken in the weeks and months following the bombings—bombings that killed a combined 120,000 people outright, and tens of thousands more through injury and radiation sickness. Included, as well, are scans of typed memos from photographer Bernard Hoffman—quietly revelatory notes like the one he wrote…

FOR decades, policy makers have treated poverty as a sign of helplessness and ineptitude. The worse off the neighborhood — the higher the rate of poverty, crime, and juvenile delinquency — the less influence it would have over its future. Social service agencies conducted “needs assessments” rather than asking residents what would strengthen their community. Government agencies or private entrepreneurs then delivered brick-and-mortar solutions — a new school, medical clinic or housing.
It seldom worked. Take Baltimore, which has been “renewed” again and again. Two decades ago, more than $130 million was poured into the neighborhood where the arrest of Freddie Gray sparked riots last spring. The vision was grand — more than a thousand homes were built or renovated; education and health services were introduced — but the jobs disappeared and the drug trade continued to flourish.
