It is the deadliest migration route in the world. While the internal borders of the European Union have been made increasingly porous since the early 1990&rsquo;s, the external borders have been progressively closed off, leaving the sea as the primary path to asylum. But the waters are rough, and migrants are often crammed on overpacked, unseaworthy vessels by opportunistic smugglers. Armed with remote sensing technologies, policing missions sent by the European states send many boats back. Others sink. Rescues &mdash; mandated by international maritime law &mdash; have become less and less frequent as European countries have instituted a complex set of laws that provide loopholes allowing the abdication of their responsibility. Nearly one in every fifty migrants attempting the journey does not make it.</p>... https://archinect.com/features/article/150069910/soapbox-hannah-arendt Soapbox: Hannah Arendt Anthony Morey 2018-06-20T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-06-20T23:31:57-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/39/39b72bba64efe69cf095dba68934cb43.gif" border="0" /><p><a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/1045325/soapbox" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Soapbox</a>&nbsp;is a weekly series delivering a curated set of lectures, talks and symposia concerning contemporary themes but explored through the archives of lectures past and present.

According to the<a href="https://cdrecycling.org/about/" target="_blank"> CDRA</a>, over 500 million tons of recoverable construction and demolition materials are produced in the US each year, including concrete, gypsum wallboard, timber and metals, the vast majority of which end up in a landfill.

This change is being driven almost entirely by the younger generation who are spending just 8.5 percent of their income on gambling compared to the <a href="http://intraweb.stockton.edu/eyos/business/content/docs/LIGHT/Millenial%20Entertainment%20Preferences%20-%20FINAL%20REPORT.pdf" target="_blank">23.5% spent by their parents</a>.
