Tech Millionare Who Beat Girlfriend 117 Times Ducks Jail Despite Damning Video 24.4.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
RadiumOne CEO Gurbaksh Chahal pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence and battery charges last week, dodging 45 felony counts for the videotaped 30-minute beating of his girlfriend. Chahal, 31, faces no jail time. He was sentenced to three years' probation, 52 weeks in a domestic violence training program and 25 hours of community service. The Internet mogul was arrested in August after police responded to a 911 domestic violence call at his San Francisco penthouse apartment. His girlfriend told arriving officers that she was unable to breathe and that Chahal had told her four times, "I’m going to kill you," San Francisco Officer Anh Nguyen told the San Francisco Business Times in March. “She stated she was in fear for her life.” Home security footage reportedly showed Chahal beating and kicking his girlfriend 117 times during the 30-minute attack. Prosecutors said Chahal lashed out at his girlfriend upon learning that she had cheated on him with another man during a trip to Las Vegas, according ...

Bangladesh's Factory Collapse: A One-Year Retrospective 24.4.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
April 24 marks the one-year anniversary of Bangladesh's tragic Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed more than 1,100 garment workers. In response to the disaster, many people called for increased safety standards in Bangladeshi garment factories. Although well-intended, these calls for increased regulation, if enacted and enforced, would have reduced the welfare of many of the nearly 4 million workers employed in the country's estimated 4,500 garment factories. Many readers will reflexively object to this claim and rightly ask why such measures will reduce the welfare of these individuals. We must start by putting Bangladeshi living standards in proper context. Poverty is pervasive in Bangladesh. More than three-quarters of the population lives on less than $2 per day and more than 40 percent live on less than $1.25 a day. Relative to other available alternatives -- subsistence agriculture and provision of household services for the most part -- working in the garment industry provides a step up ...
