The Daily Brief

Mahfuzul Khondaker BIDS 2016 

Dr. Mahfuzul I. Khondaker, professor of Criminology at Kutztown University, visited Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS) on May 29, 2016 and gave a brief lecture on the crime and criminal justice systems in Bangladesh through an analysis of social, political, and economic structures. He also described how income inequality strongly affects violence rates. It was noted that crime is a social phenomenon which, according to Marxist and radical criminology, must be understood within the socio-political-economic context. The problem of crime cannot be understood by isolating it from other problems in society. The economic structure of a society plays a significant role in criminal behavior as well as formal response to such behavior. Research shows that inequality has a significant positive relationship with criminal behavior, and how the criminal justice systems address the crime problems. Learn more about BIDS.

TODAY'S WEATHER

(Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger)

Leaning cloudy and kind of gray today with showers, more likely in the morning. Better chance for dryness in the afternoon as a low pressure moves by in the morning. With some luck, maybe some sunshine later, but that's not a guarantee. Bank on more clouds than any sun. Highs in the mid 70s. Easterly breezes. Rainfall between a tenth and a quarter inch, again, mainly coming in the morning.

KU INSTALLS NEW LIGHTING ON KUTZTOWN ROAD
In order to improve the safety of the pedestrian walkways on Kutztown Rd. through campus, KU Facilities has installed uniform lighting along the entire university corridor. Features of the new lighting include 13 LED light heads providing for a doubling of light levels at all Kutztown Rd. crosswalks. The cost of the project was $7,600 and will result in a reduction of electrical costs of $1,000 annually. All light heads are full cut offs type lights, directing light downward to avoid light pollution.
