Crime Rate in Florida Trending Down While California Skyrockets: Report

BY Sarmind SafiDec 6, 2023

According to one crime control policy expert, California's spiking violent-crime rate can be due to the liberal district attorneys in the big cities who are promoting a "culture of lawlessness." Florida on the other hand has "law and order" policies that yield lower crime. Heritage Senior Legal Fellow Cully Stimson told Fox News Digital over a phone interview this week, that, "If [California] had law and order DAs, if you had a governor of California - like previous governors, including Reagan - who were pro-law enforcement, pro-law and order, and were hammering [DAs] George Gascon and Chesa Boudin and Pamela Price campaigning for law and order DA candidates, you wouldn't have the disparity between Florida and California in terms of crime rates." This month the FBI released its annual national crime data that analyzed 2022's crime trends and found that violent incidents decreased by 1.7% since last year, in comparison to 2021. Violent crimes are defined as cases like robberies, rape, armed assault, and homicide. Murders and non-negligent manslaughter have also dropped to 6.1% while rape cases decreased by 5.4%. The national violent crime numbers for 2022 are just a fraction higher than the data of 2019 which depicts a return to the pre-pandemic numbers. New Report Shows New Numbers Stimson is one of the authors behind the Heritage Foundation's report named, "The Blue City Murder Problem," which retorted to the Democratic narrative that America has a "red state murder problem." He says, "Crime, especially violent crime, is demographically and geographically concentrated in the inner cities. That's just a fact… But to get a real sense of what's happening in a state, you have to look what's happening in your big cities in those states." The report found that "There were 2,554 homicides in those 30 cities through June 2022. In the 14 cities with Soros-backed rogue prosecutors, there were 1,752 homicides, representing 68 percent of homicides in the 30 top homicide cities in the United States." Florida on the other hand, according to Stimson, has promoted law and order policies through Gov. Ron DeSantis and prosecutors. He said, "When you look at the crime rates in big cities in Florida and you see that unlike California, the Florida constitution empowers the governor to remove elected officials who are not fulfilling their fiduciary duties. DeSantis [got] rid of Andrew Warren and Monique Worrell, two DAs in two separate counties because they're not doing their job."

Astronaut Holidays: Unparalleled Experiences in Space

BY Sarmind SafiDec 27, 2023

The holidays of Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year's are all about happiness, family, and celebration. This entails engaging in festive customs and spending time with loved ones for the majority of people. However, these holidays have a whole new significance for cosmonauts and astronauts in space. Vacations in space were uncommon in the early years of space exploration. The first Christmas spent in space by astronauts was during the Apollo 8 mission in December 1968. Frank Borman, James A. Lovell, and William A. Anders read passages from the Bible's Book of Genesis while in orbit around the moon, broadcasting the scenes to an estimated billion viewers worldwide. Vacations in space increased in frequency and length as missions went on. Astronauts Gerald P. Carr, Edward G. Gibson, and William R. Pogue observed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's in space during the 1973–1974 Skylab 4 mission. They watched a comet pass by, made a homemade Christmas tree out of food containers, and had a festive dinner that included fruitcake. For cosmonauts, the New Year's holiday was particularly important. Yuri V. Romanenko and Georgi M. Grechko were the first people to celebrate the new year while in orbit on the Salyut-6 space station in 1977 and 1978. In a broadcast on television, they raised a glass to the occasion. Astronaut Jeffrey A. Hoffman observed Hanukkah in 1993 while on the STS-61 mission aboard the space shuttle Endeavour. To celebrate the Festival of Lights, he spun a dreidel and carried a traveling menorah. Holidays were not only observed in space, but astronauts went above and beyond to make the occasion joyful. The 1999 STS-103 crew, who were entrusted with fixing the Hubble Space Telescope, celebrated Christmas with a special meal that included French specialties. Twelve Mir expedition crews, including NASA astronauts, spent their vacations on board the Russian space station between 1987 and 1998. Messages were exchanged and customs, like lighting Hanukkah candles and sending Christmas greetings, were demonstrated during these festivities. On board the International Space Station, holiday celebrations are still customarily observed. Whether it's through live broadcasts, symbolic decorations, or special food items, astronauts and cosmonauts find inventive ways to bring the joy of these festivities to the cosmic realm. Though they may be different, people who celebrate the holidays far above Earth still find great meaning and significance in them.
