Yet Forbes finds many users who appear to be trading egregious illegal content. L ast week, influential podcaster Liz Wheeler, who describes herself as “unapologetically one of the conservative movement's boldest voices,” took to Twitter to praise its new CEO, Elon Musk, for purging the site of “child pornography and child trafficking hashtags.” (Child advocates have long argued these terms indicate legitimacy and compliance on the part of the victim, and that such content should be called “child sexual abuse material.”) “Think about how many little children he’s saving from sexual abuse, exploitation & torture,” she added. Responding to Wheeler’s comments on Tuesday, Musk tweeted, “This will forever be our top priority.” Yet such illegal material remains alarmingly easy to find on Twitter—in … [Read more...] about If Child Protection Is Musk’s ‘Top Priority,’ Why Is It So Easy To Find Users Selling Images Of Nude Minors On Twitter?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Topline The U.S. men’s national soccer team was eliminated from the World Cup after a thrilling 3-1 loss to The Netherlands on Saturday, ending the team’s hopes of advancing past the round of 16—as the team continues its decades-long search for its first World Cup victory. Key Facts Netherlands right-back Denzel Dumfries’ goal in the 80th minute sealed the Dutch team’s victory—the U.S. team has not advanced to the quarterfinals since 2002. The men’s team, which failed to make the last installment of the tournament in 2018, had been trailing for the majority of the match, although its offense was able to maintain possession of the ball, preventing the Dutch team from running away in a blow-out. Haji Wright, who plays for the Turkish team Antalyaspor, cut the Netherlands’ lead in half with a goal in the 76th minute, although the Netherlands quickly pulled away with a third goal four minutes later. … [Read more...] about U.S. Men’s Team Eliminated From World Cup In 3-1 Loss To Netherlands
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Last week, Novartis and the Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV) announced they are moving forward with a Phase 3 trial for a novel fixed dose combination drug - ganaplacide/lumefantrine - for patients with uncomplicated malaria caused by the Plasmodium falciparum parasite.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Since the news of the entire Juventus board resigning broke earlier this week, more and more details have emerged about what led to that decision and what the future may hold for Italy’s biggest club. As explained in this previous column , the Italian government authority responsible for regulating the Italian stock market – known as CONSOB – are investigating claims that members of the Juventus first team squad were paid off the books during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. Indeed, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport , 23 players who had signed agreements to reduce their salaries in order to help the club through an extremely difficult period were allegedly actually given that money “in the black.” That would mean that the players and Juventus avoided paying tax on those sums, while the club would have also falsified their books to make it appear as if they balanced. With Juve being a publicly traded … [Read more...] about Juventus Investigation Continues: What Did We Learn This Week?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin POSTFIGHT: Afterward, the two embraced, and Wilder said that maybe they can do it again sometime. Eh, I’m not sure we need to see that. But again, Wilder’s power is just so, so impressive. Just take a look. Wilder said you can see why nobody wants to fight with Ortiz, because he’s so intelligent and because he’s so technical. That’s why it took him so long to figure out how to get him out of there. “I finally found my measurement,” he said. “I saw the shot and I took it.” Asked who he wants next, Wilder said he’s got Fury in February, and after that, he wants a unification bout. Which means he wants the Andy Ruiz-Anthony Joshua II winner. Here’s how Ortiz saw it: “This is boxing. I had told everybody it was either going to be him or me. It wasn’t going to go 12 rounds.” Seventh round: Wilder lands a left hook to the body to open the round. A left by Ortiz to the sternum. Wilder missed a right hand and … [Read more...] about Deontay Wilder Erases Luis Ortiz With Single Right Hand In The 7th, Defends Title For 10th Time (VIDEO)
Former President Barack Obama’s Ambassador to China, Max Baucus, said Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s China policy is “a little bit like Hitler” in its hostile tone. Baucus, who was a Democratic Montana senator from 1978 to 2014, told CNN that the Trump administration’s focus on communism in China is similar to the way Hitler targeted the Soviet Union under dictator Joseph Stalin and the way Republican Wisconsin Sen. Joe McCarthy attacked communism in the 1950s. “This is not rocket science. Here is what really concerns me. The administration’s rhetoric is so strong against China, it’s over the top. We’re entering a kind of an era which is similar to Joe McCarthy back when he was red-baiting. And State Department attacking communism — a little bit like Hitler in the ‘30s,” Baucus said.

India’s largest cinema chains are banking on American blockbusters and popular local-language films to lure movie fans back to theaters as the industry seeks to overcome challenges from changing tastes to the rise of streaming giants.
