Federal judge blocks Florida social media law, cites First Amendment | AppleInsider

In a blow to conservative efforts to wrangle social media companies, a federal judge on Wednesday blocked a Florida law that would penalize firms like Facebook and Twitter for “de-platforming” or silencing politicians.

Scheduled to go into effect on Thursday, SB 7072 placed prohibitions on tech companies that ban or “de-platform” political candidates and news outlets from their services. The measure, a groundbreaking piece of legislation, saddles offenders with daily fines, opens the door to direct litigation from users, and creates an antitrust blacklist.

Después de andar aquí y allá, en embarcaciones que navegan mares impetuosos e interminables, en pueblos pintorescos con tradiciones e historias, en lugares cosmopolitas, en caseríos rurales, en parajes con tempestades, en escenarios naturales de incomparable encanto y en silencios y en rumores, en aglomeraciones y en soledades, uno hace un paréntesis en alguna banca de la añoranza para hojear el álbum de fotogafías y la libreta de anotaciones, justificando así los días de la existencia consumidos en uno e incontables rincones del mundo.

Al mirar las páginas de las evocaciones, el corazón palpita con mayor emoción y la memoria se recrea en cuanto aparecen los capítulos dedicados a Pátzcuaro, pueblo legendario y mágico con casas y rincones pintorescos. Es irrepetible y uno de los pueblos más hermosos de México. Se localiza en el estado de Michoacán, al centro-occidente…

PEARL HARBOR (KHON2) — 39 U.S. marines who were missing in action during World War II were honored in a ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor- Hickam on July 26th.

These veterans were reunited with their families after 72 years as unidentified remains. After the Battle of Tarawa during World War II the marines were considered to be missing in action.

Crews of scientists, historians, and surveyors from the non-profit History Flight have combed through Tarawa for the past decade. This is considered to be the largest recovery of missing in action veterans ever recorded.

Four of the veterans received the Medal of Honor; including 1st Lt. Alexander Bonnyman Jr. Bonnyman, an engineer officer, along with 5 of his men, were responsible for approximately 200 enemy KIA, including the commanding Japanese admiral. A link explaining the actions of Medal of Honor winner Bonnyman.

“We stand here humbled before you today to receive, honor and commemorate our fallen courageous Marine Corps warriors who on the field of battle fought and died to preserve our freedom,” Capt. Mark Hendricks, U.S. Marine Corps Pacific Chaplain, told KHON.

Milk … this controversial food

The following is just my reflection
a point of view on today’s reality and what has been there ,
inculcated voluntarily o involuntarily from the mists of time.

We are the only beings in the animal kingdom who continue to drink milk
maternal after weaning, and in addition of milk naturally designed for
the need for a puppy (bovine) which is intended to weigh some
hundred kilograms.

Living with adult children

Anita's Perspectives on Life.

How to cope with the situation when things change suddenly

Coping with adult children was never easy. In fact, parenting is more difficult when they are adults. Parent’s hearts and minds are always involved in their children no matter how old they are. But staying with them is a different challenge altogether.😇

A Pew Research Center poll from July 2020 found that around1 in 10 adults ages 18 to 29 said they moved in because of the outbreak. What may have seemed like a temporary situation last year now feels a lot more permanent, which doesn’t make the situation any easier.

Laura Murray, PhD, a senior scientist in the department of mental health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, said that a number of stressful conditions right now, including the coronavirus pandemic, can lead to more tension. Adding the stress of moving back home after being…

Lonely travel of life

Bio-Blogger

Life is a Gem
Never is a blame
Learn to bloom
Turn around time
Day&night are same

Akin to life&death
So, deeply breath
From heart beneath
Efforts are worth
Gain the strength

Rise up and move on
Learn to walk alone
The path you choosen
Become your own boon
Focus on your reason
And make a decision

No one is for you
Nothing is your's
Even by a chance,
Though in bad times
Never think in worse
But feel it's verse

Just play your role
Be true to your will
It's a life's travel
Pay the bill of toll
In the journey of hell
To the heaven's shell

Truth is only God
Wake up from the bed
Out from dream land
As your wishes demand
And thoughts command
Live like a legend
Until your travel end

Natural Protectors: Kenyan Women Step Up to Save a Forest – Yale E360

“I’m really happy to be out of the forest — I’m also happy that women are taking part in decision-making,” said Lonolngenje, a 30-year-old mother of four, who lives just outside the forest and runs a small food kiosk with two other Samburu women. She still collects firewood in the forest twice a week, but she only uses wood from fallen trees. “I no longer cut trees down.” Lonolngenje’s newfound stewardship responsibilities are part of a broad shift of changing gender roles in northern Kenya and other parts of sub-Saharan Africa. As traditional livelihoods for men, such as livestock herding, have eroded, women have been forced to earn money for the first time. Facing worsening droughts, Samburu men leave for months searching for pasture or for new jobs, oftentimes in cities. That leaves women not only to manage the household but also to earn enough money to live in their partner’s absence.  In some cases, the women’s opportunities are being aided by the growing willingness of governments to let local populations manage their natural resources — a strategy borne out by studies showing they are better custodians. This has been particularly true in
