Facebook allowed advertisers on its platform to specifically target users interested in "pseudoscience," the nonprofit newsroom The Markup reported Thursday. One targeted ad promoted a so-called anti-radiation beanie, capitalizing on bizarre conspiracy theories that recently led vandals to destroy cell towers. Facebook says it has since removed the "pseudoscience" category from its ad portal, but not before it was tagged as an interest for more than 78 million users. Visit Business Insider's h...

Rear Window

I’ve had a few incidents like those in the movie Rear Window where the daily lives of residents in buildings across the way can be seen. We are close enough to one building that we can exchange smiles or waves, especially at 8 PM when we all come to our windows to applaud those on the Corona front lines.

Leading Thoughts for April 23, 2020

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I. John W. Gardner on dealing with the divisions in our society: “No society can successfully resolve its internal conflicts if its only asset is cleverness in the management of these conflicts. It must also have compelling goals that are shared by the conflicting parties; and it must have a sense of movement toward these goals. All conflicting groups mu...

In fact, it's almost certainly intensified global communication, what with all the attention the struggle against COVID-19 commands from 24-hour media professionals — and all the time and energy the rest of us have put into social media as a substitute for socialization. But how would we have communicated amid a pandemic of this kind in an ag...
