Prostitution, out of the shadows
Advocates combating prostitution and human trafficking have called for a more enlightened, modern approach to addressing the issue: arresting customers instead of sex workers, to reduce sex trafficking by cutting off demand. Other advocates have called for the decriminalization of consensual sex work, saying laws against it force women out of sight, compromising their safety. Lee Cowan reports on the divide over an enterprise usually kept in the shadows, and talks with a sex worker who is open about her profession.

Golden Gate Bridge Suicide Jumpers - Suicides #4
Scary true stories of the deaths of the Golden Gate Bridge jumpers who committed suicide & the survivors real life stories & ghosts caught around the Golden Gate Bridge.
Please subscribe for more true scary ghost stories.
In San Francisco is the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, It's known as a very popular place to go to end your life & sadly many people have actually done so over this bridge over the years.
Before the bridge was built, the only practical short route between San Francisco and what is now Marin County was by boat across a section of San Francisco Bay. Ferry service began as early as 1820, with regularly scheduled service beginning in the 1840s for purposes of transporting water to San Francisco.
The strait is approximately three miles long by one mile wide; it took just over four years build. Construction started on January 5, 1933, the Bridge was open to traffic on May 28, 1937.
Eleven men lost their lives during the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge, one sadly died before February 17th & the other ten workers had lost their lives on this day when a section of scaffold carrying these men fell through the safety net.
It's said that on average every two weeks, someone jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge. At least twelve hundred people have been seen jumping or have been found in the water since the bridge opened, in 1937, including Roy Raymond, the founder of Victoria’s Secret, in 1993, and Duane Garrett, a Democratic fund raiser and a friend of Al Gore’s, in 1995. The actual toll is probably a lot higher than that really. Many would sneak onto the bridge after the walkway closes at sundown, some jumpers would wrap suicide notes in plastic and tuck them into their pockets & later found.
Some jumpers are drawn to the Golden Gate because they believe it’s a gateway to another place, some think they will jump & will be saved by a spiritual being.
Sadly on December 17, 2001, a fourteen year old girl named Marissa Imrie, She was a straight A student with a great future ahead, she had plans of becoming a psychiatrist, she left her second period class at Santa Rosa High School, she got a taxi ride that cost a hundred and fifty dollar right up to the Golden Gate, got out of the taxi and jumped to her death. it was such a shock that even her own mother Renée Milligan had no idea why she did this as they were very close.
Two Survivors Ken Baldwin & Kevin Hines both say they hurdled over the railing, afraid that if they stood on the chord they might lose their courage. Baldwin was twenty eight and severely depressed on the August day in 1985 when he told his wife not to expect him home till late. “I wanted to disappear,” he said. “So the Golden Gate was the spot. I’d heard that the water just sweeps you under.” On the bridge, Baldwin counted to ten and stayed frozen. He counted to ten again, and then vaulted over. “I still see my hands coming off the railing,” he said. As he crossed the chord in flight, Baldwin recalls, “I instantly realized that everything in my life that I’d thought was unfixable was totally fixable—except for having just jumped.”
Kevin Hines was eighteen when he took a municipal bus to the bridge one day in September, 2000. After treating himself to a last meal of Starbursts and Skittles, he paced back and forth and sobbed on the bridge walkway for half an hour. No one asked him what was wrong. A beautiful German tourist approached, handed him her camera, and asked him to take her picture, which he did. “I was like, ‘Fuck this, nobody cares,’ ” he told me. “So I jumped.” But after he crossed the chord, he recalls, “My first thought was what the hell did I just do? I don’t want to die.”
Joseph Strauss, the chief engineer of the Golden Gate, watched his beloved suspension bridge rise over San Francisco Bay in the nineteen thirties, he could not imagine that anyone would use it without due care for its designated purpose.

Dakota Life: Maps and Borders
Dakota Pathways: A History was a 20-part series used by Educator's across South Dakota for use in their classrooms. The 14 minute long segments explore some of the history of South Dakota. Maps and Borders is the 12th segment produced in the series.
First, you will turn right at the hwy 50 and 46 junction. Travel until you get to the 2nd gravel road. Then you will turn left and drive past the old oak tree on the right side of the road. Drive until you come to a fork in the road. You will take the road with the little mulberry bush next to it. Drive past the 2nd cedar tree on the left side and turn right. My house is the third white house on the right side of the road next to the big red barn. If you get lost stop and ask for directions to the old William Smith house. Good luck-you will need it.
Now let's try something a little different. First you need to travel two miles north of the hwy 50 and 46 junction. They you will turn west and travel 3 miles until you come to a fork in the road. Take the road that heads south. Travel 1.5 miles, then turn west on the dirt road. Travel 1.75 miles; my house is on the north side of the road.
Both of the hypothetical examples above describe the route to the same location. They seem very different, because the first example is unstructured using visual cues found on the road, while the second example uses standard directions like north and south. Places are also easier to find when a map can be used which includes roads, symbols, borders and a legend.
Cartographers make all types of maps. There are city maps, county maps, state maps, world maps, 911 maps and even topographical maps that show elevation difference and man-made features. The maps made today by places like the EROS Data Center are very detailed and exact.
Finding your exact location has improved drastically over the years from using compasses and longitude and latitude coordinates to using portable global positioning systems and satellites. Directions like turn right at the old fence post have been replaced by the push of a button.
