Lois Frankel, is encouraging members to wear white to this year's State of the Union address as a shoutout to the voters who handed Democrats a majority in the House in the midterm elections and a reminder that they plan to make women's economic security a priority.The color choice is also meant to honor the women's suffrage movement that led to the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.

Seven analysts, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program, embarked on a three month study of where memes originate, how they spread, and where they catch on.

First, what the group really needed was a comprehensive database of memes and meme history. For that, the group chose the website Know Your Meme as the “source for meme annotation”. Between October and December 2017, it crawled KYM’s 18,300 entries on all the current memes to pull data on 15,600 entries. In three months, … [Read more...] about A study of 15,000 memes reveals where hate speech begins and how it spreads to the rest of the web

Clinton said China wants to extend its influence "first throughout Asia — then, throughout the world." The former Secretary of State compared China's "under the radar" efforts to the way Russian actors used covert social media campaigns to influence the 2016 US election. Australia has been closely monitoring China and its efforts to sway policy and expand its military presence in the Pacific region.
