    In the weeks leading up to the vote, concern was expressed over the content on display and in circulation at Patmos Library. In one instance, some parents reportedly took issue with the inclusion of Maia Kobabe's "Gender Queer: A Memoir" in the library's collection. Kobabe's comic book contains illustrations of sex acts, including one encounter involving a sex toy, and has been touted as "a tool" to help others understand pronoun use and the meaning of "nonbinary." When asked to remove the book from circulation, the library board instead set it behind the counter. The board kept 59 other books with LGBT themes — including "Spinning" and "Kiss Number 8" — on the shelves (some in the young adult section) despite similar backlash. \u201c"Vote NO on Library"\u201d — Jason Scott (@Jason Scott) 1659583566 Kelly Jensen, writing for Book Riot, blamed "conservative propaganda" for painting Patmos Library "as an institution with groomers."

    Q: I’m an avid cyclist. Driving over Highway 17 to San Jose through the wildlife tunnel project at Laurel Curve the other day, I noticed a “bike detour” sign. I can’t imagine any informed cyclist riding on 17. It may be legal, but it’s certainly ill-advised. Instead of giving cyclists a bad idea, perhaps Caltrans should prohibit, or at least discourage cycling from Scotts Valley to Bear Creek Road? Doug Engfer, Santa Cruz A: It is legal to bike on 17 for a short section near Lexington Reservoir, but I wouldn’t recommend it anywhere on this curvy, narrow road. Q: Do you think people would slow down if there were signs on Highway 17 that flashed “Special speed enforcement zone – minimum speeding ticket $1,000”? Bob Kromer, Chico A: That would get the attention of many drivers. Q: I have to disagree with Steve Rempel’s praise of the green paint on Foothill Expressway between San Antonio and El Monte. The problem is that the curb lane is a right-turn-only lane in both directions. Yet there is a bike lane to the right of...
    In two weeks, an unusual new anchor tenant will join Macy’s, Target and the Century Theatres at South San Jose’s Oakridge Mall. It’s a grocery store. The 99 Ranch Market company, the nation’s largest Asian grocery chain, will unveil its “new concept” store to customers on Tuesday, March 22. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Saturday, March 26. This 99 Ranch will be the chain’s first location inside a mall, giving customers “unparalleled convenience,” said Teddy Chow, NorCal vice president for the group. Company officials had expected the store, announced last April, to open by late summer but the date was pushed back. It’s being touted as both a supermarket and a dining destination, with enhanced in-store and takeout options, and will feature a new interior design and services such as curbside pickup. “Guests can expect to enjoy a barbecued food section with a delicious selection of grilled meat and cuisines, including the best-seller, Hong Kong-style barbecue,” the company said in a statement. “The noodle section offers a wide choice of soup-based noodle and congees, and the dim sum...
    Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Monday the Department of Justice (DOJ) is suing the state of Texas over its new congressional districts. Garland announced the lawsuit at a press conference, alleging that Texas officials are violating Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act by lumping too many black and Latino voters into too few districts to dilute their votes. Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta said the new redistricting plan will diminish increased minority voting strength caused by recent population shifts. It’s a vote dilution lawsuit arguing that new maps disenfranchise Black and Latino voters. The DOJ is already suing Texas over certain provisions of its new voting law, Senate Bill 1, Section 208 of the Voting Rights Act and Section 101 of the Civil Rights Act — Grace Panetta (@grace_panetta) December 6, 2021 “Today the Department of Justice has filed suit against the state of Texas for violating Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act,” Garland said. “As the Supreme Court has observed, a core principal of our democracy is that ‘voters should choose their representatives, not the other...

    Bill Maher is noticing a lot more conservatives among his fans. Maher has been one of the most famous liberals in America for decades, and he’s become a refreshing voice of reason from his side of the aisle over the past few years. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) The “Real Time with Bill Maher” host has generated a lot of praise for calling out cancel culture and woke politics, and he’s now noticing conservatives are buying tickets to his shows. “When people say to me sometimes, ‘boy, you go after the Left a lot these days, why?’ I’m like ‘Because you’re embarrassing me!’” – @BillMaher #RealTime pic.twitter.com/u8kjGqExmr — Brent Baker (@BrentHBaker) September 11, 2021 Maher said the following on Joe Scarborough’s podcast, according to Outkick: For the first time in my life, I am playing to a mixed audience.

    TikTok profiles that meet specific conditions will be able to start selling products. It seems that what Instagram has done with its social network has got the rest to start plans to become stores. The monetization of social networks is something more and more pressing. For some time now, almost all platforms to upload content to have implemented systems that allow users to buy and sell objects.. The clear example of all this is Instagram. The social network that was born with the mission of sharing photos and videos is now nothing more than a cluster of ads, products and other elements. In fact, the plans of the social network were in sight when they restructured the interface. The new design started with a few subtle changes, but important enough that they affected users. Instagram moved the button for creating posts to an unnatural position, upper right area. The place of this button was occupied by one destined to open the section of the Instagram store, where users can buy and sell. The complaints were many, but Instagram has not...
    After three Houston-area lawsuits were filed against Facebook alleging sex traffickers used its platform to commit crimes, Facebook asked the Texas Supreme Court to intervene. In response, the highest court in Texas ruled that Facebook could be held liable for sex traffickers using its platform, arguing Facebook isn’t a “lawless no-man’s-land.” Facebook has argued for over a decade that it’s immune from prosecution because of Section 230, a federal regulation that has broadly been used by courts to grant immunity to social media companies when publishing, un-publishing or censoring content on their platforms. The state Supreme Court rejected Facebook’s argument, noting a marked shift from previous court rulings. Last October, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas issued a 10-page statement on Section 230, arguing that when Congress first enacted the statute, “most of today’s major Internet platforms did not exist. And in the 24 years since, we have never interpreted this provision. But many courts have construed the law broadly to confer sweeping immunity on some of the largest companies in the world.” Instead, courts have...
    (CNN)The Supreme Court on Thursday at 10 a.m. ET will issue the last two opinions of the term in highly anticipated cases involving the Voting Rights Act and political donor disclosures.All eyes will also be on Justice Stephen Breyer, who during the final days of the Supreme Court session has written decisions preserving the Affordable Care Act and bolstering student free speech, has been the subject of speculation over his future on the bench.Here is a look at the last two cases where justices will deliver opinions. Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee The Supreme Court is considering two Arizona voting rules that the Democratic National Committee says violate the historic Voting Rights Act that prohibits laws that result in racial discrimination. Read MoreOne provision wholly rejects ballots cast in the wrong precinct. Another says that only certain persons -- family, caregivers, mail carriers and elections officials -- may deliver another person's completed ballot to the polling place.

To stop the Templar from teleporting, you need to stand in the area that it is attempting to teleport too. Teams can break this up in a manner that suits themselves.

    Co-founder of Black Voters Matter LaTosha Brown with other voting rights activists after a news conference in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on June 25, 2021. The U.S. Supreme Court is poised to release an opinion any day now on Brnovich v. DNC and with it could strike another devastating blow to the Voting Rights Act. The court heard the case back in March. At issue are two Arizona laws, one requiring election officials to toss ballots that are cast in the wrong precincts, and another that would restrict the delivery of mail-in ballots, allowing for just the voter, a family member, or caregiver to collect and deliver a voted ballot. That would prevent campaign workers, community activists, or members like church groups from delivering group ballots, making it a felony to do so. The third-party ballot collection ban is particularly detrimental to Native American voters, who are less likely to have access to reliable mail services in the state. Just 18% of Native American voters outside of the state's largest counties—Pima and Maricopa—have physical addresses and receive mail at home....
    Photo credit: Loic Venance, Getty Images The Texas Supreme Court ruled Friday that Facebook can be held liable for any sex trafficking on its platform, despite the protections of Section 230. Facebook’s attorneys had initially argued that under Section 230 of the federal Communications Decency Act, the social media giant could not be held responsible for what a user said or wrote on its platform. However, the company acknowledged that “sex trafficking is abhorrent and not allowed,” and that they plan to “continue our fight against the spread of this content and the predators who engage in it.” In the majority opinion, the justices wrote that Section 230 does not “create a lawless no-man’s-land on the internet” and that states should be able to hold platforms that knowingly engage in, or promote, sex trafficking. “Holding internet platforms accountable for the words or actions of their users is one thing, and the federal precedent uniformly dictates that Section 230 does not allow it,” the opinion said. “Holding internet platforms accountable for their own misdeeds is quite another thing. This is particularly...
    The Pentagon's newly released public report on UFOs has left many enthusiasts unsatisfied, excluding top-secret information and prompting claims the government is shielding information. The nine-page public report released on Friday afternoon, separate from classified information that was also provided to Congress, described 144 military UFO sightings mostly since 2019, only one of which could be explained. Luis Elizondo, the former director of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) program to study UFOs, said the report was only the tip of the iceberg, but nevertheless called it 'historic'. 'This is a historic moment for us, in our country and our military,' Elizondo told Fox News after the report's release.  'The government has formally and officially come out and informed Congress that these things are -- A, they’re real -- and two, that they’re not ours and that they seem to be performing, at least some of them … in remarkable ways,' he said.  Luis Elizondo, the former director of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) program to study UFOs, said the report was only the...
    More On: new york times NY Times defends editorial board member over American flags remark It’d be a crime if NYC’s next mayor is not the anti-de Blasio: Goodwin NYTimes’ Choire Sicha bolts for New York Magazine Earth to New York Times! Paper claims watermelons found on Mars The New York Times on Wednesday named Stella Bugbee to edit its Styles section — a day after the embarrassing announcement that New York magazine had hired the paper’s previous Styles editor, Choire Sicha. Bugbee’s hire at the Times means that she is effectively switching places with Sicha, who is taking her previous job as editor at large at New York magazine. That’s despite the Times strenuously insisting for weeks that Sicha was staying at the paper, and merely leaving the helm of the Styles section in favor of an undefined newsletter project. “Stella brings to The Times a broad and ambitious vision for Styles coverage, one that embraces fashion and lifestyle even as it explores issues of politics, gender, power and fame,” said the memo from executive editor Dean Baquet,...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Before the pandemic, going out to see a baseball game wasn’t all that complicated, but in this new normal, with so many changing policies, one family is striking out. For Barbara Anderson, being a Yankee fan is a huge part of her life. She wore a jersey the day she got married 30 years ago. Before the pandemic, she would go to games with the family. Even the dog is a fan.

                      by Dave Huber  What the heck is going on with the Virginia Department of Education? A little over a week ago reports surfaced that the state would be doing away with advanced math classes for all grades except 11 and 12. But then reports came out noting the state’s education chief disputed those reports, saying “absolutely acceleration is not going away in mathematics courses.” However, it was unclear whether this “acceleration” would be done via specialized courses, or whether teachers would have cater to students’ individual needs via “differentiated instruction” in mixed-ability level (heterogeneous) classes. The Fix was told by the Virginia DOE communications director that indeed advanced courses would be available to students prior to 11th grade. The DOE updated its website after the controversy, assuaging the misgivings of Loudoun County board member Ian Serotkin, who had first pointed out concerns about the state’s new math “pathways.” Serotkin pointed to the previous version of the DOE site which contained materials and resources which had raised red flags. Now, a new Fox News report from Thursday appears to muddle the DOE’s message...

    If you own a Samsung phone, you now have yet another way to listen to your favorite audio shows. The company has added a podcasts section to its Free app, which is where Samsung users can access a selection of complimentary TV shows, movies, games and news articles. The section, officially known as Samsung Podcasts, is rolling out to Galaxy S21, S20, Note 20, S10 and Note 10 devices. As long as you’re logged into your Samsung account on Free, you can start listening. According to Samsung, there are “thousands” of podcasts to check out on the app, with popular networks like This American Life, NPR and iHeartMedia represented. To be clear, this isn’t a separate app Samsung has created to compete with the likes of and . So you can’t quite accuse the company of needlessly replicating software that’s already available through Android proper. Judging from the screenshots, it doesn’t seem like Samsung Podcasts is meant to replace those apps either. 
    SAVANNAH, GEORGIA - When salvage crews in early November began cutting apart the capsized Golden Ray, a shipwreck the size of a 70-story office building with 4,200 cars within its cargo decks, they predicted the demolition could be wrapped up by New Year's Day. Months later, the job remains far from finished. Both ends of the cargo ship have been cut away and carried off by barges in a pair of giant chunks. But roughly three-fourths of the vessel remains beached on its side off St. Simons Island on the Georgia coast, where the South Korean freighter overturned soon after leaving port September 8, 2019. What caused the ship to flip is still being investigated, but an unstable load is suspected. "It's been nothing but problems out here," said Andy Jones, a St. Simons Island resident who heads to the wreck site in his small fishing boat most days to monitor the demolition and post updates to a YouTube channel. "It's a disappointingly slow pace." Salvage experts decided more than a year ago that the Golden Ray, measuring 656 feet...
    The Wall Street Journal editorial board came out in favor of potentially revising Section 230 protections for social media companies after an op-ed in the publication was the subject of a “phony" fact-check that resulted in the reduced distribution of it on Facebook. “We’ve been leery of proposals in Congress to modify Section 230 protections that shield internet platforms from liability,” the editors wrote. “But social-media giants are increasingly adding phony fact checks and removing articles flagged by left-leaning users without explanation. In short, they are acting like publishers in vetting and stigmatizing the content of reputable publishers. The legal privileges that enable these companies to dominate public discourse need to be debated and perhaps revised.” The news comes after a Wall Street Journal op-ed written by Johns Hopkins surgeon Marty Makary argued that the United States could approach reaching herd immunity from COVID-19 in April. But Facebook’s group of fact-checkers took issue with the story, calling it “misleading” while claiming Makary’s argument was “unsubstantiated.” “Three scientists analysed the article and estimate its overall scientific credibility to be very...
    In September of last year, YouTube introduced Shorts, a short video system similar to Instagram’s TikTok or Reels. Since then, Shorts has been available in India and is now starting to reach other regions. As a preview, Short videos start to show in the YouTube app. Thus, some users have a new section on the YouTube front page under the name of Short Beta, with a carousel of short videos that YouTube determines may interest you, although they are not necessarily from accounts you already follow. Short videos on YouTube Since YouTube introduced us to Shorts, the concept has changed slightly. To begin with, YouTube initially limited them to 15 seconds, but Google help specifies that the limit is actually 15 seconds. 60 seconds long. (although in another section on the same page it still indicates 15 seconds). In any case, it is a concept similar to TikTok: short vertical videos and with vertical navigation to view related videos. On YouTube, these short videos have found their place in the main YouTube tab of the application, in the Short section...

    The White House has recovered Spanish on its website with the arrival of Joe Biden to the United States Presidency and after he disappeared during the four years of the mandate of his predecessor, Donald Trump. Miami World / diariolasamericas Specifically, the Spanish section of the website was deactivated in 2017 and, although Trump’s first press secretary, Sean Spicer, said that the page would be restored, it was ultimately not carried out. However, the Spanish account of the White House on Twitter remained active during this period. In this way, the Spanish has returned to the web shortly after the ceremony of the inauguration of Biden as 46 American president, an appointment in which the artist of Puerto Rican descent, Jennifer López, performed. “A nation under God, indivisible, with freedom and justice for all”, claimed the singer, including the Spanish in the interpretation of her song ‘This land is your land’.
    Amazon has said booting Parler from the web was a 'last resort' after the social media site sued the web host for antitrust violations.  The tech giant said in legal filings that the app - favored by Donald Trump supporters - was 'unwilling' to 'remove content that incites and plans the rape, torture and assassination of named public officials'.  Users called for Barack Obama, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi to 'fry' and also labelled Stacey Abrams 'good target practice', the filing claims. One post allegedly read: 'We are going to fight in a civil War on Jan.20th, Form MILITIAS now and acquire targets.' Amazon also looks to Section 230 - the law much maligned by the president - as a defense in scrubbing the site from the web Monday.  Section 230 allows social platforms to moderate their services by removing posts that are obscene or violate the services' own standards, so long as they are acting in 'good faith.' Amazon argue: 'That is precisely what AWS did here: removed access to content it considered 'excessively violent' and 'harassing'.' Apple, GooglePlay and Amazon...
    Tim Cook, chief executive officer of Apple, speaks at the 2019 Dreamforce conference in San Francisco on November 19, 2019.David Paul Morris | Bloomberg | Getty Images Apple's board of directors regularly discusses antitrust risks, the company said on Tuesday in an annual filing. The language, which is new in this year's proxy statement, highlights how regulatory pressure and antitrust issues have become a significant risk for Apple as policymakers increasingly scrutinize big technology companies. Apple doesn't have the same antitrust issues that rival companies like Facebook and Google have, but Apple CEO Tim Cook testified alongside their CEOs in front of Congress last summer about antitrust topics. Cook later said he wanted to "unpeel" Apple from the investigation. The new passage reads as follows: "The Audit Committee and Board regularly review and discuss with management Apple's antitrust risks. Apple's Antitrust Compliance Officer is responsible for the development, review, and execution of Apple's Antitrust Compliance Program and regularly reports to the Audit Committee. These reports cover, among other the alignment of the program with Apple's potential antitrust risks, and the...
           
    First shipments of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine preparing to roll out At least 8 dead as car bomb rocks Kabul Costco Adds the Ultimate Christmas Dessert to Its Bakery Section © Michael Buckner. Design: Ashley Britton/SheKnows. A Yule Log (a.k.a  Bûche de Noël) cake is a longtime Christmas tradition for many households. In case you didn’t know, the cake is modeled to represent the yule log that some families would burn on Christmas Eve back in the nineteenth century. The burning of the yule log was meant to bring good luck to the family. Somewhere along the line, the yule log tradition transformed from a burnt tree to a delicious cake that we enjoy during the holidays. If you’ve always wanted to try the cake but never had the time to make one from scratch (which is understandable) now’s the time. The warehouse giant has some of the best cakes in the biz, and we’re sure this is no different. Costco is selling the rolled cake for $10 and not only is that price beautiful, but the design is just...
    The massive free-floating iceberg that is dangerously approaching South Georgia island appears to have lost a large chunk along its path. A NASA satellite capture an image of iceberg A68a, which shows its northernmost section is missing. Scientists theorize the 70 square mile chunk was clipped off when the frozen structure hit the continental shelf outside of the island, 'spawning a new berg,' according to Gizmodo. The newly formed piece will soon receive its own name, as the smaller iceberg is large enough for maritime agencies to observe its path. Scroll down for video  The massive free-floating iceberg that is dangerously approaching South Georgia island appears to have lost a large chunk along its path. A NASA satellite capture an image of iceberg A68a, which shows its northernmost section is missing Iceberg A68a, which measures 1,500-square-miles, broke from the Antarctic peninsula's Larsen C ice shelf in July 2017 and headed slowly for the open ocean.

    Brooklyn Bridge Park on Wednesday broke ground on the space underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. This section will complete the Park as originally planned and will be named in honor of Emily Roebling, the engineer known for her work ensuring the completion of the Bridge. The area will be transformed into a flexible public space that will add two acres of parkland and connect the DUMBO section of Brooklyn Bridge Park with the southern piers. Emily Roebling Plaza will consist of a large hardscape area which will feature unique concrete pavers that will echo the design and engineering of the Bridge and will be surrounded by trees, benches and lawns.
    House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Thursday that “it’s time to scrap” special protections for social media giants under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA). “The biggest social networks are selectively censoring information,” McCarthy wrote in a tweet, linking to his press conference on the matter. “It’s time to scrap their special protections under Section 230 and start over.” https://mobile.twitter.com/GOPLeader/status/1316764966255435776 “Less than three weeks away, many Americans are eager to learn about the candidates,” McCarthy said. “It is imperative our information channels are open and Americans can access stories by the press and their own social circles.” McCarthy then began discussing Section 230 and the censorship of the New York Post‘s story that alleged Hunter Biden “facilitated” a meeting between his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, and a Ukrainian gas company. Congress believed in the power of information so much they created special liability protections for information platforms, technology companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google. It is called section 230. I believe in the principles outlined in the law. But is clear Section 230, in its current...

    Reddit is urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reject a petition for rulemaking to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, saying that if the section changes it “would change the very trajectory of the internet.” Hide Earlier this summer, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), a part of the executive branch, filed a petition for rulemaking with the FCC to amend Section 230. The petition stemmed from President Donald Trump’s social media executive order. Hide Section 230 shields websites from being held liable for what is posted on them by third parties and has been hailed as “one of the most valuable tools for protecting freedom of expression and innovation on the internet.” As part of the process, the FCC is collecting public comments about the petition. Reddit filed its comment earlier this week, arguing that a change in Section 230 would not only threaten the website, but the individual moderators for the site’s subreddits. “It is our view that the debate on Section 230 too often focuses solely on very large,...
    Facebook is alerting users that it will soon change its terms of service to allow for the social media giant to remove or restrict content that could land it in legal trouble. Hide Facebook says the change is related to an Australian law that would force the social media giant to share ad revenue with news publishers. Hide The company on Monday said if that law goes through, it would “reluctantly stop allowing publishers and people in Australia from sharing local and international news on Facebook and Instagram.” “This global update provides more flexibility for us to change our services, including in Australia, to continue to operate and support our users in response to potential regulation or legal action,” a Facebook spokesperson told the Daily Dot. On Monday, Facebook users were sent a notification about the upcoming change for the social media giant’s terms of service. Hide Specifically, the pop up says, effective October 1, it will add the following line to its terms: “We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information...
    Facebook’s dedicated news section rolled out in the US just a couple months ago. Now, Facebook says it will expand the news feature internationally within the next six months to a year. That’s earlier than expected, and it could arrive in the UK, Germany, France, India and/or Brazil, Facebook said in a blog post .  As in the US, Facebook will pay news publishers for their content. But the feature will likely change in other ways, to meet the consumer preferences and regulatory demands of other countries.

    Ted Cruz and Tucker Carlson are the latest to slam Google over its threat to demonetize The Federalist, a right-wing news outlet, over reader comments on its stories.   What exactly Google complained to The Federalist over remains murky and it's unclear if they ever threatened to ban it from the ad platform.  The row began with an NBC story which claimed that its reporting prompted Google to act. NBC said it gave Google a report from the Center for Countering Digital Hate, a British think tank that flagged that The Federalist and nine other sites for 'racist' content.  The think tank flagged that The Federalist had used a 'black crime' tag to categorize content. It also flagged a story in which a journalist claimed the media was 'lying' by reporting that white supremacists were involved in looting. It specifically singled out CNN and the New York Times.    ZeroHedge, a blog, was also flagged and has now been defunded.  In the NBC story, a Google spokeswoman was quoted by NBC as saying it had 'removed both sites' ability to monetize'. The NBC journalist who...
