    Social media users took to the internet following President Biden's recent town hall, drawing comparisons between his behavior and that of the cartoon character Beavis from "Beavis and Butt-head" At one point during the town hall, Biden was shown holding his arms bent out in front of him with his fists clinched. That moment was clipped and shared to social media by several people, including political commentator Mike Cernovich, who questioned, "What is Biden doing?" "Biden is straight comedy," wrote former NBA player Andrew Bogut. "Uhhhh Beavis…" Other users simply shared photos of the president in the moment alongside pictures of Beavis, who is known for a hyperactive alter-ego, The Great Cornholio, that exhibits the same behavior. One user said Biden looked like he was "about to transform into cornholio," including a GIF of Beavis. Another user noted Biden was "pretty good" at impersonating Beavis. "Who did Cornholio better," questioned one user. "I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist... but has anyone ever seen Biden and Beavis in the same room," another user asked rhetorically. President Joe Biden participates...
    A personal trainer who was one of four Britons caught breaching police checkpoints to take selfies near the erupting volcano on La Palma has revealed they were trying to save stranded dogs. Seb Jones, 33, told MailOnline he and his muscled friends Andy Flavell, Tom Whaite and Zack Hurley, responded to social media campaigns to rescue the animals trapped near the flowing lava and rushed to save them. But their daring mission was thwarted when falling ash and smoke started to burn and suffocate the would-be rescuers before they were intercepted by police. The intrepid explorers now face possible court action for putting their lives and those of the security services at risk according to local media. Seb, who also owns Oldham Driveways, said: 'Me and my friends are all big animal lovers, especially dogs and we saw on social media about all the petitions to get the dogs out of El Paso and how they'd been left.  Seb Jones (pictured), 33, who was one of four Britons caught breaching police checkpoints to take selfies near the erupting volcano on La Palma...
    A top hedge funder who joined in an acquisition that announced a merger with Donald Trump's new social media startup promptly dumped his shares – missing out on a rocketing share price as he issued a statement on 'values.' Boaz Weinstein, whose Saba Capital is valued at $3.5 billion, announced the sale in a statement that made plain he had no interest in being part of any new venture involving Trump – who on Wednesday announced plans to launch plans 'to create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the "Big Tech” companies.'

    SAN JOSE — A civilian community service officer for San Jose, who briefly served as a sworn police officer, has been charged with gun crimes after he reportedly elicited FBI attention for his remarks to followers of alt-right social media, including allegedly advocating for killing cops. Denis Shevchenko, 40, of Gilroy, was charged this week with three misdemeanor counts alleging illegal weapons possession, topped by a charge that he kept an unpermitted loaded handgun in his locker at the South San Jose substation of the police department, which oversees the community service officer program that employs him. He was arraigned Tuesday and is currently out of custody. In response to an inquiry from this news organization, the police department said it planned to address the allegations against Shevchenko at a Friday morning news conference. Calls made to listed phone numbers for Shevchenko were not answered Thursday, and court records do not show a listed attorney for him. The weapons charges resulted from a police investigation into Shevchenko prompted by the FBI San Francisco Bay Area division’s Joint Terrorism Task Force,...

    A student’s video of a Riverside teacher with a faux Native American headdress dancing in front of her class has gone viral and sparked criticism on social media of the instructor. In the video, which hit social media Oct. 20, the teacher appears to be sharing with students the word “SohCahToa,” a mnemonic device used to help remember advanced mathematics concepts. Numerous social media posts criticize the teacher’s behavior as racially insensitive toward Native Americans, with some calling for her firing. A statement Oct. 21 from the Riverside Unified School District confirms the video is from the district and decries the teacher’s lesson. District spokesperson Diana Meza said the video shows a female math teacher at John W. North High School, who was teaching a trigonometry class. “Obviously this video has gone viral,” Meza said. “It’s not who we are as a district, nor as a school. … RUSD prides itself on valuing diversity and equity.” Meza declined to name the teacher, citing the privacy of personnel matters. The instructor has been placed on leave, and the district has launched an...

Mahjabin Hakimi, a rising star of Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club, was slaughtered by the jihadists earlier this month, her coach claimed in an interview with The Persian Independent.   Conflicting reports on social media said that Mahjabin had been mysteriously killed a week before the Taliban seized Kabul, with a death certificate purportedly showing the date of her death as mid-August. Other claims said that she had committed suicide. A photo purportedly of Mahjabin's corpse showed an injury to her neck, but it is impossible to say whether this has been caused by a blade or a ligature.    Mahjabin Hakimi, a rising star in the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club, was mercilessly slaughtered by the jihadists earlier this month, her coach told The Persian Independent Mahjabin was one of just two girls who played for the team who did not manage to escape after the fall of Kabul, her coach said A picture circulating on social media purportedly shows the girl's...
    FORMER President Donald Trump made headlines earlier this year after Twitter permanently banned his account, which had over 88.9 million followers at the time. Since then, he has been doing everything he can to regain social media access and has even gone as far as attempting to create his own platform. 2Donald Trump was banned from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in 2021Credit: Getty Will Donald Trump be allowed back on social media? The future of Trump's social media usage remains unclear following his suspension.

It was when pictures of what appeared to be the Mahjabin's severed head were published on social media that her coach decided to speak out. "All the players of the volleyball team and the rest of the women athletes are in a bad situation and in despair and fear," the coach said. "Everyone has been forced to flee and live in unknown places." Mahjabin had played for the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club before the Taliban's takeover in late August. The coach, who wished not to be named, said that only two girls from the team managed to...

    Many young children are using social media, and their activity is often going unmonitored by parents, a new poll finds. Researchers from the University of Michigan surveyed parents of kids aged seven to 12 to ask about their children's social media usage, and how involved they are in monitoring the activity. They found that one-third of youngsters aged seven to nine and just under half of kids aged 10 to 12 had used social media in the past 12 months.  While five out of six parents reported using at least one parental control, 40 percent of parents say that regular monitoring their child's social use is too time consuming. A majority of parents also expressed concerns over children sharing private information, encountering sexual predators, seeing adult images or videos or being unable to discern false information. The rise of smart devices has also allowed children easy access to social media apps like Instagram and TikTok, in turn giving parents more to worry about with their child's online usage (file image)  Around one-third of children aged seven to nine use social...

    A Somerset County man was arrested for child porn possession and trying to sell the images over social media, authorities said Thursday. Agents with the US Department of Homeland Security and other local officials raided Siddh B. Shah's Winding Way home in Hillsborough on Sept. 30, seizing computers and other electronic devices, Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson, said. An investigation found Shah had uploaded more than 200 images depicting the sexual exploitation or abuse of a child, Robertson said. The investigation also found that Shah was selling the child pornography on social media applications, authorities said. Shah was charged with first degree possession of child pornography with intent to distribute and third degree possession of child pornography. He was lodged in the Somerset County Jail where he will remain pending a detention hearing.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minnesota lawmaker is pushing for privacy rights for children on social media. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) hosted a virtual roundtable discussion Thursday morning focusing on Facebook and Instagram’s impact on young users. The senator spoke with parents to hear their concerns on privacy and content, as well as how tech companies profit from their children’s data. Facebook has been under fire after a former employee testified last week about how the company promotes content to children. Frances Haugen said the company was aware, for example, that its algorithms can lead minors to eating disorder content. Instagram currently says users have to be at least 13 years old to use the app, but there’s no age verification process. During Thursday’s roundtable, Klobuchar said there needs to be a multi-layered approach to protect kids on social media, including a federal privacy law to address the social media giant’s algorithms that track and target young users. Parents told the senator that avoiding the apps altogether is near impossible, as schools and sports programs...
    U.S. Marine Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller pleaded guilty to a military judge on Thursday to six charges stemming from social media posts demanding accountability from military and civilian leaders on the botched Afghanistan withdrawal and criticizing his commanders. The plea agreement entailed a maximum sentence of a letter of reprimand in lieu of jail time, which the judge accepted. However, there may still be actions taken against his rank and benefits. Scheller is charged with: Article 88 (Contempt toward officials), Article 89 (Disrespect toward superior commissioned officers), Article 90 (Willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer), Article 92 (Dereliction in the performance of duties), Article 92 (Failure to obey order or regulation), and Article 133 (Conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman). The charges stemmed from Scheller posting a series of short videos and statements on social media after 13 American service members were killed in Afghanistan, including a Marine who he knew personally. Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller has been in pre-trial confinement pending his preliminary hearing. (Image via U.S. Marine Corps.) In that initial video, he demanded public accountability for the withdrawal.

    Lt. Colonel Stuart Scheller has been charged with six violations and will face a special court martial for publicly criticizing the chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal Marine officer Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller arrived grim-faced for his special court martial this morning following his blistering social media attacks on military top brass over the Afghanistan withdrawal fiasco. Scheller, 40, has pleaded guilty to six charges, including contempt toward officials and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, and was flanked by his defense team, including lawyer Timothy Parlatore as he walked to the courtroom at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Parlatore has told DailyMail.com exclusively: 'It is interesting to note that senior leaders have not dismissed his message. But they want to crush the messenger.' Scheller has waived his right to a trial by jury and has elected trial by military judge alone.  Parlatore said outside the courtroom: 'This is a sentencing case. Stu has accepted responsibility. He is going to plead guilty so this is not a matter of going in and saying, hey he did the right thing but it is a...
    With recent revelations about the role that Facebook’s algorithm may have played in a range of social ills, the Biden administration has been quietly exploring ways to increase oversight without relying on an act of Congress, according to White House and administration officials and allies on Capitol Hill. The primary target: Section 230, a provision in the U.S. Communications Decency Act that effectively shields websites from facing legal repercussions for what users post. By seeking change through regulatory action by the Federal Trade Commission, rather than risking legal reform of Section 230 getting bogged down in a legislative quagmire, the White House could clear a potential pathway to regulating social media companies that have long been able to operate without facing repercussions for what posters use their websites to say and do. Such a move could also help Biden live up to a campaign promise to strengthen regulatory oversight of Facebook and other social media giants. “The president has called on the FTC to adopt rules to address unfair data collection and surveillance practices in his Executive Order on Promoting...
    Getty New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore catches a pass on September 19, 2021. If there has been one major head-scratcher from this summer to the regular season, it would probably be the play of second-round draft pick Elijah Moore. The rookie was unstoppable at OTAs, minicamp, and even training camp before his injury, and now he has trouble recording a reception most games. People had so much confidence that Moore was a draft sleeper (including me) that nobody blinked twice when ex-roommate A.J. Brown declared he’d be willing to bet all his 2021 game checks on the Jets WR winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. The Ole Miss product was also a huge factor in the expected resurgence of this offense, and his lack of production has certainly contributed to its failure. Moore is not the loudest player on the field but he does carry an internal confidence into everything he does. This week on social media, the rookie finally opened up about his slow start.

    LESS than five minutes spent on social media can be enough to make you miserable, a study found. People scrolling Twitter or watching YouTube quickly see their moods ruined when they stumble across bad news. 1A study has found that spending less than five minutes spent on social media can be enough to make you miserableCredit: Shutterstock Experts at the University of Essex found people who saw bad Covid-related news when they were on social media suffered an “immediate and significant” reduction in happiness. This could happen in just two to four minutes, they said, but if people looked for posts that showed acts of kindness instead they were less likely to end up in a bad mood. The team, led by psychologist Dr Kathryn Buchanan, said: “Even a few minutes of exposure to Covid-related news on social media can ruin a person’s mood. “We would all do well to be mindful of these effects and consider balancing our doom-scrolling with some kindness-scrolling.” The study, published in the journal PLOS One, quizzed 1,000 people about how they felt after reading...

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A one-day conference starting Wednesday will focus on the receding memory of the Holocaust as Sweden marks the 20th anniversary of a conference on remembering the genocide, with participants focusing on how social media is contributing to a rise in antisemitism. “There is a dangerous rise of antisemitism all over the world mainly because of the new social media,” said Nachman Shai, Israel’s diaspora affairs minister, upon arrival at the International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance in Malmo, southern Sweden. The media are “inciting and increasing the level of hate, and they have to take responsibility for that not to remain so-called neutral or objective, Shai said. The German European Affairs Minister Michael Roth said “the situation worldwide” is “extremely worrying,” in reference to recent anti-Jewish attacks in Germany.
