    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1752] PROBATION FOR PROFIT - Many jurisdictions in the US have turned over their probation procedures to for-profit companies collecting fines and monitoring individuals accused of minor infractions. As small fees and interest charges begin to build, people who already cannot afford their fines can end up in jail owing exorbitant amounts. "Even beyond the basic ethical conundrum of incarceration for profit, there are other fundamental faith principles" at stake, says Caroline Isaacs, a program officer for the American Friends Service Committee. "Redemption and forgiveness really are falling by the wayside when we profitize these functions."
    THE REBBE'S LEGACY - Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, also known simply as the Rebbe, was the leader of the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidic movement when he died 20 years ago. Today, the movement has tripled in size and the Rebbe's many followers continue to remember him with visits to his gravesite. The Rebbe's personality and teachings were well-received by Jews and non-Jews alike, and his followers have established Chabad centers for teaching in over 80 countries around the world. "The Rebbe inaugurated the first attempt in all of Jewish history to reach every Jewish community and every Jew in the world," says his biographer, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin. "No one was regarded as insignificant."

    Global Voices [#714] Here Comes Uncle Joe He is not their uncle, and his name is not Joe. But to the old ladies of An-dong, a rural community in southeastern Korea, Uncle Joe is almost the only contact they have with the modern world. As the young leave these rural areas to acquire higher education and to find high salary jobs in the cities, there are no services or people to support old people. In this situation, Uncle Joe becomes the only man for the old.
    However, his road taken isn't always happy. Because of their advanced years, Joe often encounters his old customer-friends' misery and death. Moreover, as he reflects on his life, he faces his inner conflict and shame. In this film, we see how Uncle Joe serves these communities with humor and attention, how love and friendship are infused in life, and how he overcomes his conflicts with his friends.
