Opinion | Technology vs. Covid-19: Assessing the Threats

He proposed “guardrails around technology” to limit surveillance and political advertising on social media, promote a healthy free press, and introduce new international norms — “the equivalent of a Geneva convention,” whereby “governments are not permitted to attack the civilian infrastructure of other countries just as they are not allowed to attack civilians in a time of war.”

Facebook’s director of public policy, Katie Harbath, addressed some of the election-related concerns in a parallel session. She said that Facebook was “a fundamentally different company” than it was at the time of the 2016 presidential vote in the United States, and that there was “a lot that we did miss in that election.”

To make sure voters get the right information, she said, Facebook is now monitoring political ads, hiring fact checkers and combating foreign interference. “There will be no finish line in this work,” she said. “Bad actors and adversaries

Dancers, dreamers and cat killers: Appalachian kids captured by $10 cameras | Photography

Wendy Ewald travelled to Letcher County, Kentucky, in the winter of 1976. She was 25 and not long out of college in New York, where she had trained as a teacher before discovering photography. “I was still a kid,” she says, “and I arrived in a place that was very remote and where everyone knew everyone else, but somehow I found it very easy to fit in.”

So much so that she remained there for six years, working in three schools, where she built darkrooms and taught practical photography, printing and book-making to children who, until then, had never thought their everyday lives were worth recording. “I bought a bunch of Instamatic cameras and sold them to the kids at $10 each,” she says. “I wanted to instil in them the sense that what they were doing really meant something. I felt it was somehow important that they owned

FuelCell Energy Disputes Misleading Claims of Short Seller

DANBURY, Conn., Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FuelCell Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq: FCEL) (“FuelCell Energy” or the “Company”) yesterday became aware of claims made by an apparent short seller about the Company that are misleading and contain factual inaccuracies. FuelCell Energy emphatically denies these claims related to its disclosures with respect to the LIPA 2 and LIPA 3 power project awards.

These awards are not, and never have been, part of FuelCell Energy’s backlog, and have no impact on the Company’s 2022 financial goals, including revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA. As FuelCell Energy has consistently reported, its LIPA Yaphank project, currently under construction and for which there is a signed power purchase agreement, is included in the backlog and 2022 revenue projections.

The Company does not believe the New York Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) should negate the LIPA 2 and LIPA 3 awards and is disputing this

Property tax hike on city ballot would fund early childhood support services | Education

According to the emails, Dodson preferred to call the ballot measure Proposition C, for child. Advocates pushed Proposition R for the Ready By Five campaign led by WePower.

In St. Louis County, the campaign was for a half-cent economic development sales tax on the November ballot to raise $80 million annually. The state statute regulating the tax funds allowed for infrastructure expenditures in or outside of the county without requiring that any be spent on early childhood education. The bill’s sponsor, County Council Chairwoman Lisa Clancy, dropped the initiative in August before the council could vote on it.

Ray Cummings, president of American Federation of Teachers Local 420, said he’s concerned the nonprofits behind the city’s campaign will dictate the funding or circle it back to themselves.

“I think the community needs to understand there’s more to it than trying to help kids. It’s who’s behind the curtain,” he said.
