Color - Cloudflare Design
"Every perception of color is an illusion.. ..we do not see colors as they really are. In our perception they alter one another. In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually. In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is — as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art."

States of Incarceration: The Global Context 2016 | Prison Policy Initiative
Louisiana has been called “the world’s prison capital. The state imprisons more of its people, per head, than any of its U.S. counterparts. First among Americans means first in the world.” But in the global context, how far behind are the other 49 states, really? This report finds that the disturbing answer is “Not very far.”

Women’s Lives, Cut Short by the Men They Knew - The New York Times
Americans have long struggled to find common ground in the gun debate. Even after a spate of horrific mass shootings this year, Republican legislators consistently rebuffed efforts to improve gun safety laws.

If common ground does exist, it might be found here: in reducing the number of homicides each year that begin with domestic abuse. Congress attempted to address domestic violence involving guns over two decades ago with the Lautenberg Amendment. That law prohibits people from owning or purchasing guns if they have been convicted of assaulting a spouse or child, or if they are under a permanent protective order.

What Explains U.S. Mass Shootings? International Comparisons Suggest an Answer - The New York Times
The USA has 270 million guns and has had 90 mass shooters from 1966 to 2012. Americans make up about 4.4 percent of the global population but own 42 percent of the world’s guns.

Adjusted for population, only Yemen has a higher rate of mass shootings among countries with more than 10 million people. Yemen has the world’s second-highest rate of gun ownership after the United States.

[C]ountries with high suicide rates tended to have low rates of mass shootings — the opposite of what you would expect if mental health problems correlated with mass shootings.

Americans sometimes see this as an expression of deeper problems with crime, a notion ingrained, in part, by a series of films portraying urban gang violence in the early 1990s. But the United States is not actually more prone to crime than other developed countries.

Any individual can snap or become entranced by a violent ideology. What is different is the likelihood that this will lead to mass murder.

[A]n American is about 300 times more likely to die by gun homicide or accident than a Japanese person.

The Difference Is Culture

The United States is one of only three countries, along with Mexico and Guatemala, that begin with the opposite assumption: that people have an inherent right to own guns.
