    Carl Court/Getty Images Two Republicans in the House of Representatives have sent a letter to NBCUniversal ahead of its coverage next week of the Winter Olympics in Beijing. Axios first reported the Jan. 24 letter on Tuesday. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the ranking member on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Robert Latta (R-OH), the ranking member on the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, sent a four-page letter to NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell and Gary Zenkel, president of Olympics and Business at NBCUniversal. The Republicans asked the executives how the network will utilize its coverage of the Olympics “to shed light on China’s history of human rights abuses.” “Like our athletes competing abroad, we believe all companies doing business in the U.S. must be examples to the world, as their success has been benefited from our country’s respect for the rule of law, human rights, and entrepreneurial enterprise,” added Rodgers and Latta. The letter goes on to criticize China’s atrocious record on human rights such as its genocide against the Uyghur Muslims. “These well-documented facts should startle...
    The Biden administration on Monday announced the formation of a new task force to combat human trafficking and smuggling groups operating in the Northern Triangle countries and Mexico in tandem with Vice President Harris’s trip to the region. The initiative was one of a handful highlighted by Harris during a press conference Monday afternoon alongside Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei. The Justice Department said that the new task force, known as Joint Task Force Alpha, will involve federal prosecutors partnering with officials working for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to dismantle and prosecute human trafficking and smuggling networks operating out of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico. “Transnational human smuggling and trafficking networks pose a serious criminal threat.

    The Conversation Spain What things say about us Sketch for _The Bedroom at Arles_ by Vincent van Gogh (October 1888). Wikimedia Commons / Gogh Museum, Amsterdam In the days following the death of a beloved relative, we re-enter his house, now empty of his laughter and caresses, more full of everything that his life developed between. Photographs, books, her favorite mugs, the jewelry she adorned herself with, the chair she used to watch TV. Tears invade us on our way through the rooms that were so familiar to us and have now suddenly become strange. What was a common space is now nothing but a place of sadness and memory. When the rooms are emptied, a whole world of memories will leave with the things that were so close. The anthropologist and theorist of science Bruno Latour has insisted on the hybridization between things, spaces and identity. The collections, samples, furnishings, archives and libraries, museums, laboratories, digital networks and data complexes are conditions that are neither above nor below the social character of cultural productions. In culture, spaces, artifacts and...

    Tribune. Donald Trump’s social media interventions sparked a violent rally in Washington on January 6 to attack the capital, the symbol of American democracy. Following this very serious event, discussions about the regulation of social networks will increase. Should we broaden our vision and learn a lesson from these discussions to avoid a civilizational catastrophe? A lesson that allows everyone to contribute to creating a desirable “world” that adds extra meaning to their professional activities. Organize social networks by forcing them to remove hateful content and be transparent about the moderation of their exchanges. It is the logic of digital platforms that automatically, mechanically, pushes a downward spiral towards increasingly narrow and insane worldviews. Primary emotional processes This logic aims to increase the amount of time individuals spend in front of the screen. It guides sites to sort messages in order to support the messages that lead to the most multiplication, thus triggering strong emotional reactions; Presenting them according to the primary emotional processes that lead to reading them; Or even to suggest negative and conspiratorial content than what was...
    Ricardo Alanis Monterrey / 22.01.2021 16:45:35 Given the rise in cyber bullying and other risks in social networks, the State Commission for Human Rights conducted a cycle of videoconferences for 970 high school students for one week. On this occasion, the workshop was aimed at students from Secondary School No. 1 Raúl Rangel Frías because students are now at greater risk, accessing the internet for longer as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The president of the ECHR, Olga Susana Méndez Arellano, highlighted that these videoconferences and courses meet the importance of safeguarding the right to have a life free of violence for adolescents in basic education. “According to estimates from the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef), young people are the most connected age group, and minors represent one in three Internet users. The use of time in technologies, such as the Internet, can also make children more susceptible to harm online or offline, because some traditional risks are intensified and new abuses are encouraged ”. The event entitled « Human rights and prevention of social networks »,...
    A new study explores the differences and similarities between two different complex systems, albeit on completely different scales: the universe and its galaxies and the brain and its neurons. Although the size was clearly different, they found that the structure was significantly similar. In some cases, the two systems appeared to be more similar to each other than the areas that make them up. It suggests that very different bodily processes lead to very similar complex and organized structures. For example, the human brain works because it is made up of a network of nearly 70 billion neurons. It is estimated that there are at least 100 billion galaxies in the universe.read moreIn each system, they are assembled into a complex web or network, spread over long strands and ends. The diffuse nodes are also familiar to images of both the universe and the brain, leading to some superficial similarities in the images. But in each system, those texts make up only 30 percent of the mass. In each, 70 percent of the mass is made up of areas that...
    (CBS Local)– COVID-19 has altered the summer and fall TV slates for many networks in the TV industry and “Coroner” on The CW Network is one of several shows impacted by the shifting schedule. The drama, starring Serinda Swan and Roger Cross, was bumped up to the summer and makes its U.S. debut on Wednesday, August 5.

I picked a really dark show about death. This character, she is very multi-faceted....
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration said Wednesday it will impose travel bans on employees of the Chinese technology giant Huawei and other Chinese companies the U.S. determines are assisting authoritarian governments in cracking down on human rights, including in China’s western Xinjiang province. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also said the administration is finalizing plans to minimize data theft from the popular Chinese video streaming app TikTok, although he stopped short of saying it would be banned outright. Pompeo made the announcements a day after the British government said it would ban Huawei from its 5G networks over concerns that sensitive data could be compromised by the Chinese Communist Party. Pompeo told reporters at a State Department news conference that Huawei employees found to be providing “material support to regimes engaging in human rights violations and abuses globally” would be hit with sanctions. “Companies impacted by today’s action include Huawei, an arm of the CCP’s surveillance state that censors political dissidents and enables mass internment camps in Xinjiang and the indentured servitude of its population shipped all...
