"Ordinary Sacramento," a photo series honoring hometown listlessness

Enoch Ku is a Sacramento-based photographer that is perfectly capturing the liminal space found all over the city in his series called "Ordinary Sacramento".  Sacramento is the sixth largest city of California and the capital, but if you ask anyone from there (me included), it feels so "small-town" that it can be smothering.  — Read the rest

Facebook will soon label all posts discussing the coronavirus vaccination with a pointer to official information about COVID-19, it said today. It also revealed it has implemented some new “temporary” measures aimed at limiting the spread of vaccine misinformation/combating vaccine hesitancy — saying it’s reducing the distribution of content from users that have violated its policies on COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation; or “that have repeatedly shared content debunked as False or Altered by o...
