Macomb County May Seek Tax For New Jail Plus 7 Things To Know
Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel wants to build a new jail, because the current one is a squalid death trap. On June 19, he plans to ask a special meeting of the county board of commissioners’ Records and Public Safety panel for approval of the $375 million project, plus the OK of ballot language for a tax to pay for the bonds that would pay for it. It’s not clear how much the tax millage would be or whether this would constitute a tax increase for residents. But for a generally tax-averse county, this one could get problematic, fast. Oh, and there’s a new attempt to thwart the new Gordie Howe International Bridge, this time via an addition to a state budget bill that would prohibit the state from spending any money to finance its half of construction. You know, even though Canada is reimbursing us 100% of the costs. Will wonders never cease? Elsewhere, we run down: Security guards in downtown Detroit began a strike today, though it’s unclear how widespread it actually is. The city has broken ground on the Joseph Campau Greenway, a 1.2-mile non-motorized path that will run parallel to the Dequindre Cut. Friday is Flag Day, and the Fisher Building will celebrate by displaying its collection of 60 national flags from way back in 1928, when the building opened. [Facebook] Beyond Juice, the Madison Heights based food retailer, will open its second Detroit location on the ground floor of The Platform. Shinola is selling love locks that you can hang in Parker’s Alley. And there’s a cash flash event planned for a stretch of Grand River Avenue seeing reconstruction on June 26. You can learn more about the event, which aims to support neighborhood businesses in Detroit, at DiscoverDetroitD1.com. Thanks for listening to Daily Detroit.

[Unedited] Richard Davidson with Krista Tippett
Neuroscientist Richard Davidson is one of the central people who’s helped us begin to see inside our brains. His work has illuminated the rich interplay between things we saw as separate not that long ago: body, mind, spirit, emotion, behavior and genetics. He is applying what he’s learning about imparting qualities of character — like kindness and practical love — in lives and in classrooms. This live conversation was recorded at the Orange County Department of Education in Costa Mesa, California. Richard Davidson is the William James and Vilas Research Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He founded and directs the Center for Healthy Minds there. He is the co-author of The Emotional Life of Your Brain and Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body. He was inducted into the National Academy of Medicine in 2017. This interview is edited and produced with music and other features in the On Being episode “Richard Davidson — A Neuroscientist on Love and Learning.” Find more at onbeing.org.
