California Lawmakers pass ethics reform following scandals

California Lawmakers pass ethics reform following scandals | Exposing Corruption, Injustices, & The Good, the Bad & the Ugly | Scoop.it

California lawmakers marked the end of the legislative session early Saturday by approving two political reform bills aimed at addressing a string of scandals, including the arrest of two state senators on federal corruption charges.

Political transparency, gift-giving, and cozy relationships between lawmakers and special interests came under scrutiny this year. Prominent lobbying firm Sloat Higgins Jensen & Associates was fined $133,500 in February for hosting illegal fundraisers for the state's top elected officials, including Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative leaders of both parties.

Weeks later, Democratic Sens. Leland Yee, of San Francisco, and Ron Calderon, of Montebello, were arrested in separate cases, with allegations of swapping clout for campaign contributions.

Amid the arrests, a Senate ethics task force released a package of bills to place restrictions on lobbyists and increase disclosure. SB1442 by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, would increase the frequency of detailed campaign spending reports from twice a year to quarterly. It was the last of the reform bills considered by the Legislature.

#Common Good, Social aspects : Finding small villages in big cities

#Common Good, Social aspects : Finding small villages in big cities | Exposing Corruption, Injustices, & The Good, the Bad & the Ugly | Scoop.it

Daily life in cities tends to differ from daily life in small towns, especially by who we interact with. The MIT Senseable City Lab and the Santa Fe Institute studied this social aspect — individuals' contacts by city size — through anonymized mobile phone logs.

. . .

It seems that even in large cities we tend to build tightly knit communities, or 'villages,' around ourselves. There is an important difference, though: if in a real village our connections might simply be defined by proximity, in a large city we can elect a community based on any number of factors, from affinity to interest to sexual preference.
