    PEOPLE entering the metaverse could find themselves paying for stuff with "Zuck Bucks" as the tech billionaire tightens his grip on the new virtual world. Mark Zuckerberg, 37, is reportedly planning to launch digital coins and tokens to boost his Meta firm, as Facebook and Instagram's popularity dive. 2Could we be paying our way in "Zuck Bucks"? But it probably won't be a cryptocurrency. Apparently bosses prefer a sort of in-app token they can control centrally similar to those in the Roblox game. Roblox's robux currency helped revenue soar to $1.9billion/£1.5billion last year. Insiders told the Financial Times that staff internally have dubbed the currency "Zuck Bucks".

    Facebook announced on Thursday that it is creating an artificial intelligence capable of viewing and interacting with the outside world the same way a person can. Known as the Ego4D project, the AI project will take the technology to the next level and have it learn from 'videos from the center of action,' the social networking giant said in a blog post.  The project is comprised of 13 universities and has collected more than 2,200 hours of first-person video from 700 people. It is going to use video and audio from augmented reality and virtual reality devices like its Ray-Bans sunglasses, which were announced last month, or its Oculus VR headsets.

    A Canadian woman was hit with a $60,000 fine for feeding wild black bears a veritable feast, 'creating a public safety risk' that forced officials to euthanize the animals.  Whistler resident Zuzana Stevikova is accused of violating the Wildlife Act in British Columbia after purchasing ten cases of apples, 50 pounds of carrots and 180 eggs per week to feed the wild animals during the summer of 2018.  In July 2018, the Conservation Officer Service - an agency that investigates human-wildlife conflict prevention - received a complaint that someone had been feeding black bears in the Kadenwood neighborhood, according to the agency's Facebook page.  The illegal feeding led to three black bears, pictured, being euthanized after they became so used to their weekly feedings that they no longer showed fear of humans Pictured: one of the three black bears that officials were forced to euthanize after a Canadian woman fed them throughout the summer of 2018 Their investigation determined that Stevikova was feeding the animals on her property throughout the summer of 2018, and would purchase more food for the bears...
    FACEBOOK is launching its own version of TikTok inside the app. It's borrowing the fairly new Instagram Reels – and building it into Facebook proper. 1Reels have finally made their way to FacebookCredit: Facebook That means you'll be able to watch short-form video content created specifically for Reels. And it could help Facebook claw back some of its younger users from the clutches of TikTok. Instagram Reels launched in 50 countries last August. It allowed users of the photo sharing app to create short-form videos set to music. They can then be shared on the platform with the idea that they may go viral. This is similar to TikTok as it gives users easy ways to make creative videos.

The head of the Facebook-owned app revealed the plans on Twitter. 1Adam Mosseri is the Head of InstagramCredit: Twitter Adam Mosseri tweeted in response to a BuzzFeed article: "Kids are increasingly asking their parents if they can join apps that help them keep up with their friends.

    Before federal and state regulators in the United States file a lawsuit in federal court earlier this month, Facebook is reportedly increasingly prepared to avoid being prosecuted for breach of trust law. The Washington Post on Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter, said the company had offered to license its code to another company, thereby creating a new competitive social network. This underscores Facebook’s commitment to the competition, the newspaper said. The FDC and 48 state lawsuits focus on the acquisition of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. Although both deals were ratified in 2012 and 2014, the Internet glove is now accused of using these purchases to prevent competition from its competitors. For months, distrustful officials in Washington and across the country investigated Facebook and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, which turned the company into an illegal monopoly. For almost 17 years the social media company has been planning to systematically acquire or eliminate all of its competitors, with regulators increasingly believing that engaging in illegal tactics is one of the most successful digital services. The most profitable in...
    Social networking giant Facebook recently told its employees about new plans to create devices that can read minds by using neural sensors. The details of Facebook’s ambitious new plans come shortly after news broke last week that the company was the subject of an anti-trust lawsuit led by New York Attorney General Letitia James. Facebook’s quest for mind-reading had not intended to become public knowledge, though it was broadcast to an end-of-the-year meeting where thousands of employees were present. A recording of the audio was later leaked to Buzzfeed News. Leaders of Facebook, including the company’s chief technology officer Mike Schroepfer, noted that following Facebook’s purchase of CTRL-labs in 2019, it was looking to bridge the gap between the physical and virtual worlds. One of the ways he believed this could happen is by using technology, created by CTRL-labs, that can read “neural signals coming from [the] brain, down [the] spinal cord along [the] arm, to [the] wrist” with a watch-type of device. These signals — essentially human thoughts — would then be translated into commands such as typing a...
    The City of Denver is speeding up its Elevate Denver bond program to help accelerate recovery from the COVID-19-induced economic downturn. "Now more than ever, people in our community need access to good-paying jobs, so we’re deploying the same job-creating tools used to bring us out of past recessions by accelerating the Elevate Denver Bond Program to help rebuild our local economy, get people back to work and make neighborhood improvements sooner," Mayor Michael Hancock says in a statement about the move, which echoes one made over a decade ago. On October 13, a Denver City Council committee approved a new debt issuance of about $170 million that will go toward infrastructure projects funded by the Elevate Denver bond program, authorized by a ballot initiative passed by Denver voters in 2017. The city had originally planned on issuing $77 million in bonds, then decided to go bigger, faster.Related Stories Mayor Hancock Proposing Major Cuts for 2021 Denver Budget Will City Elevate Denver Bond Projects to Boost Economy?
