Carrier Slashes 215 More Jobs at Indianapolis Plant

The Carrier plant in Indianapolis laid off 215 of its employees Thursday in a cost-cutting move. The Indiana-based heating and air-conditioning plant’s latest round of lay-offs comes after already sending 600 jobs from the Indianapolis plant to Carrier’s facilities in Monterrey Mexico this past year.

The job cuts come one year after a highly publicized visit by then president-elect Donald Trump claiming to have negotiated a deal between Carrier’s parent company United Technologies, and the state of Indiana to save the plant from closing. The deal included 7 million dollars in tax incentives for the company to remain in business in Indiana.

Addressing a crowd of supporters and employees at the Carrier plant last December Trump promised, “Companies are not going to be leaving the United States any more without consequences. Not going to happen.” The President even made the claim of adding jobs to the plant, “And by the way, that number is going to go up substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number”.

Last November the Rexnord Corporation, members of the same labor union as Carrier, closed down its nearby Indianapolis plant costing 300 workers their jobs. This year United Technologies also has plans to close their UTEC facility in Huntington Indiana, costing the state another 700 jobs. Around 60 former Carrier employees have enrolled in a company sponsored educational reimbursement program to earn a academic degree.

Indian Man Fights Back After Wrongful Conviction

The state of Indiana is finding itself in the cross hairs of a lawsuit filed by a former inmate, Keith Cooper. The lawsuit is for the time he spent in prison, and he has a good chance considering he is the first person in Indiana’s history who has ever been pardoned for being innocent.

Cooper was convicted of armed robbery which caused him to spend a decade in prison. Cooper is now fifty years old, and living as a free man. His case came into the spotlight when Vice President Mike Pence, who was then serving as the governor of Indiana, received Coopers file with unanimous recommendations from the state parole board for exoneration and still declined to issue a pardon for Cooper.

Following Trumps win and Pence’s move to the White House, his predecessor, Eric Holcomb, quickly granted Cooper’s pardon which made him the very first man in the history of the state of Indiana to be pardoned for innocents. Cooper invested a lot of time in this pardon, six years of waiting for the pardon from the parole board followed by three years of waiting for the governor’s office to act on said pardon.

Now that Cooper is a free man, he has filed a complaint against the City of Elkhart, Indiana as well as the local police department stating that they manufactured and create evidence against him to create his guilt. Cooper was convicted of a 1996 robbery where one man was shot. Twelve years after the incident, in 2008, two key witnesses in the original trial, Michael Kershner and his mother Nona Canell, both gave statements that were recorded stating they had misidentified Cooper in the crime. Canell even stated that during the investigation she had even requested to see a suspect lineup but the Steve Rezutka, the lead detective on the case, told her there was no need because they had the right man. In 2006 DNA evidence even put another man at the scene, and the state court judge who had originally sentence Cooper offered him a deal for resentencing him for time served. Cooper was freed at that time but was still a convicted felon.

Five years later, Cooper filed a petition to have the crime he did not commit expunged from his record. After three years, the state parole board finally voted unanimously that Cooper be pardoned and sent the recommendation to Governor Mike Pence. Pence then did not act on the pardon for two years. In the summer of 2016, while Pence was campaigning with Trump for the Presidency, he had a letter sent to Cooper stating that to his knowledge, Cooper had not filed a petition with the Elkhart County court to determine weather post-conviction relief was available, the letter also stated that Pence would not be acting on the pardon.

Cooper spent years fighting to regain his good name, and it was well worth the effort because he has now restored his reputation. His lawsuit is pending, and while it does not name the governor in it, it does specifically name Rezutko, the investigator in the robbery, for maliciously prosecuting Cooper with false evidence. Cooper states that due to all this, he now suffers from depression as well as PTSD. If you would like to have a more detailed run down of the case, head to Buzzfeed.

Why People are Choosing Talkspace


Therapy has always been a great way for people to have someone to talk to about their problems. Unfortunately, the luxury of going to see a therapist isn’t always something that everyone is able to do. Therapists are often expensive and inconvenient for most people, and this prevents people from getting the help that they need. If you are noticing that you’re beginning to have issues with mental health problems and know that you need help, there is an app that you can download that is actually better than going to see a therapist locally.

Talkspace has been created by New York City professionals who knew there was something missing in the world of therapy for our modern world. People nowadays are always on the go, and it makes sense that your therapy should be the same. Instead of trying to make appointments and taking time off of work just to go to them, you can make use of Talkspace as an app that you download to your mobile device. Talkspace gives you access to professionals who are there to be the listening ear and sound advice that you’ve needed for years.

Talkspace is also a lot cheaper than other methods of therapy. In fact, you’ll probably only spend a few dollars a day to get connected to a therapist when compared to the hundreds of dollars you’d spend per session to see a local therapist. This is why a lot of people have been switching from local-based therapy to the type you can do online or through a mobile app like Talkspace. You will be able to get in touch with your therapist either by messaging them or by setting up a video chat session where you will be able to see them face-to-face like you would in an office.

Pacers Continue to Surprise NBA

One of the biggest traditions in the state of Indiana is basketball. Because of this, the Indiana Pacers, who are in the NBA, are always a focal point of the state. Heading into the 2017-18 season, there was a lot of concern that the team could be taking a step back in the wrong direction. Much of this was due to the fact that star guard Paul George was traded away. While the Pacers did not look like a team that would compete, they have surprised a lot of people and appear to be heading towards greater things (

This is good for 8th place in the conference, which would allow them to quality for the playoffs. As the league approaches the halfway point, there are many decisions that will need to be made to decide how they can continue to compete and win in the second half of the season.
