“Involuntary Pornography” Just Got a New Definition

quote [ Reddit follows several other platforms that have already banned deepfakes pornography. That includes Gfycat, Discord, and recently Pornhub, which said that deepfakes imagery counted as nonconsensual pornography. ]

Followup to this post. This ruling applies not only to video, but also GIFs and even still images. The subreddit for photoshopping celebrities which has existed for seven years and had some 50,000+ subscribers was banned today without warning.

Medea Benjamin: Behind the U.S.-Saudi Connection

Majority of the 45 minute speech is dedicated to the history and state of the relationship of the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and the "industrial military complex". If you're up on that, then you might want to start the video at 36:00 where the discussion turns to the need for different factions of the progressive democratic movement to work together.

I'm not pushing her agenda, nor against it, just submitting it for comment. I do appreciate her clear speech.

The CDC’s New Quarantine Rule Could Violate Civil Liberties

quote [ The agency proposed a new rule that would expand its powers to screen, test, and quarantine people traveling into or within the United States, in the event of a crisis like the historic Ebola outbreak of 2014.

On the face of it, this sounds like a good thing. ]

Christmas Fight Club

quote [ In the Peruvian Andes, folks know how to celebrate the season right. What they do is, they put on a colorful ski mask, dress up like Mad Max mountain bikers, tie a dead eagle to their heads, and get drunk and dance for about a week straight. Then, come Christmas morning, they all gather together in the middle of town and beat the baby bejesus out of each other. ]

Update: Story of Child Dying in Santa's Arms Unconfirmed

quote [ We contacted several hospitals in Knoxville for comment. Both the East Tennessee Children's Hospital and the University of Tennessee Medical Center confirmed that a visit like the one Schmitt-Matzen described did not occur at their respective facilities. ]

I still haven't read the story. When I saw the title and people's reaction to it, I was immediately skeptical. "Fake News" is a trending topic, and yet a story like this breezes right through.
