China’s recycling ban has sent America’s plastic to Malaysia. Now they don’t want it — so what next?

Dozens of laborers and factory operators sit hand-cuffed in rows on the pavement at an industrial park in Malaysia.

They’ve been detained in a government raid on unlicensed plastic recyclers as the country seeks to curb a growing illicit industry.
.
“It’s illegal,” said Yeo Bee Yin, Malaysia’s Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change, who attended the raid and had invited journalists to watch.
.
“It’s against the Environmental Quality Act because they do not have licenses and they are polluting.”
.
Malaysia is cracking down on opportunists who are trying to cash-in on China’s decision last year to ban plastic waste imports. Since July 2018, officials have shut down at least 148 unlicensed plastic recycling factories — but have only pressed charges against a handful of suspects.

Insurer sent $33,000 to a man struggling with addiction. He used the cash to go on a binge — and died

Jennifer Alba sifts through the boxes of photographs and documents. It’s a collection of what once was, and what her life has become. A mother sorting through pain.

There’s her son, Joseph, as an infant, smiling, dressed in a onesie with his bright blue eyes matching the blue backdrop. He was her firstborn, a gift who came into her life when she was just 17.
.
Not too far away lies the document from a middle school recommending that he be suspended for the last few weeks of school after being caught with marijuana. He was 13.
.
It was the start of a lifelong struggle with drug abuse that his mother desperately wanted him to break. Over the next 16 years, Alba says, her son spent dozens of nights in jails, cycled through nearly 20 stints in rehab and served two prison terms.

Many experts agree that freezing your credit report is the strongest way to protect against identity theft.

Starting Friday, you’ll be able to do it free of charge.
.
In the wake of a massive data breach last year at Equifax that exposed personal information for about 148 million Americans, Congress amended the Fair Credit Reporting Act to require reporting agencies to freeze reports for no charge. Equifax is one of the three major credit reporting agencies in the United States.
.
Identity thieves can use information in your credit report to open credit cards and bank accounts, and take out loans.

Three babies were among five people stabbed early Friday at an unlicensed day care center in New York by an employee who then tried to kill herself, officials said.

The victims — two girls and a boy, plus two adults — were in critical but stable condition Friday at local hospitals, New York police said.
.
The babies range in age from 3 days to 1 month, New York police Assistant Chief Juanita Holmes told reporters Friday.
.
The facility was used mostly by Chinese women who give birth and stay there before returning to China, a law enforcement source tells CNN.

Stacey Abrams will win the Democratic primary in Georgia’s gubernatorial race Tuesday, CNN projects, becoming the first black woman in the nation to hold a major party’s nomination for governor.

If she wins in November, she will become the country’s first black female governor.
The former state House minority leader defeated former state Rep. Stacey Evans, who ran a campaign that tried to appeal to moderates and independent voters.
Abrams, who grew up in Gulfport, Mississippi, as one of six children, told CNN’s Kyung Lah in an interview before the election she was aware that “as an African-American woman, I will be doing something no one else has done.”

In recent times, DEPRESSION has been the major cause of suicide. ANGER has led to premature death, LOW SELF ESTEEM has led to suicide because they do not see themselves as being able to carry on with life and feel others are better than they are. I have taken it upon myself to listen and write to the public and victims of these. If distance cannot make me listen and interact with you physically, then I hope my message would reach and touch your heart knowing that you are not in this alone and you can come out of it. Also, mastering the habits of a healthy lifestyle, peace of mind, better communication will have a great impact on your journey through life. I will be sharing my personal stories and stories of individuals but their actual names won't be mentioned. Most of these stories will be written in the first person narrative. Promising you a noteworthy read! Cheers!
