Ivanka Trump, champion of working women, hasn’t done much for those making her brand’s clothes

https://qz.com/1029758/for-a-champion-o ... hing-line/

Hundreds of clothing lines and manufacturers have funded efforts to improve the safety of factories in Bangladesh. Yet neither the Ivanka Trump brand or the clothing distributor from which it licenses some production has contributed.

Ivanka’s company doesn’t inspect the factories where its workers produce its clothes, nor does it, like some other small apparel brands, hire a third-party company to do so. The company does not publish a list of factories that produce its goods, a trend among apparel companies. It told the Post it has no plans to do so.

Trump’s ‘Made In America’ Week Is Already Backfiring Spectacularly
The president and his family have relied heavily on foreign manufacturing.

Season 3 of Carnivale is a disappointment.

Man that woulda been nice.

Season 6 of The Wire would have been important (immigration and Latin communities was the plan) and while Deadwood ended by saying exactly what it came to say, in terms of plot I guess you can call it a cliffhanger, but forcing Carnivale to turn into an action-adventure to shoehorn in some kind of conclusion really bugs me. Carnivale could have been great.
