Despite numerous reports detailing the horrific conditions of China’s so-called “reeducation” centers for Uighurs, a new report from the BBC documents just how distressing life is in one of the world’s most secretive camps. Tursunay Ziawudun lived in one of China’s internment camps in the Xinjiang region for nine months, according to the BBC . Ziawudun is just one of approximately one million Uighurs forced to live in the camps. While accounts detailing the horrors are rare, Ziawudun was able to flee Xinjiang to share her story. During her first stint in detention, Ziawudun said it was comparatively easier with decent food and access to her phone, according to the report. After a month, however, she had developed a stomach ulcer and was released. After her release, her husband, who is a Kazakh and had not been sent to the camp with her, was allowed to return to Kazakhstan to work. Authorities, however, kept Ziawudun’s passport, trapping her in Xinjiang. Then on … [Read more...] about Things Are Much Worse In China’s Camps Than Previously Suspected, According To New Report

SINGAPORE (REUTERS) - Facebook on Friday (Nov 6) said it has dismantled seven separate networks of fake accounts and pages on its platform that were active in Iran, Afghanistan, Egypt, Turkey, Morocco, Myanmar, Georgia and Ukraine due to "coordinated inauthentic behaviour". The social media platform announced it had taken down the new networks as part of its monthly report into "coordinated inauthentic behaviour", which also noted Facebook had removed nearly 8,000 pages involved in deceptive campaigns around the world in October. Many of the networks taken down by Facebook were involved in deceptive political influence campaigns using fake accounts, targeting audiences both domestically and abroad. One network of Facebook accounts and pages was operated from Egypt, Turkey, and Morocco by individuals connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian Islamist movement that operates networks of groups across the Middle East. The pages targeted countries across the region and included … [Read more...] about Facebook removes ‘inauthentic’ networks spanning 8 nations
I. It’s 1995, and I’m in seventh-grade keyboarding class. The school computer lab has clunky greige Apple computers loaded with Mavis Beacon software. We dutifully practice placing our fingers on the “home row”: the left hand on ASDF , right on JKL; . We practice typing short words, then sentences, aiming for accuracy and speed while keeping those fingers on the home row. This goes on once a week for three months. The class is easy. I get a decent grade. Then we switch to Health class, which is much more exciting because it talks about s-e-x. Because it’s 1995, health class spends a lot of time teaching about contraceptive foam and the sponge. Neither the sponge nor the home row method will serve me in my adult life. II. It’s the week that vaccines become available to New Yorkers age 30+, and I’m venting to friends in a group chat that I haven’t been able to book an appointment online yet. “That’s because Katie is probably typing in that she lives in BROKOLYN NWE … [Read more...] about Why Am I Sp Bad At Typign?
Taylor Jones says he'll never forget the November night when he had his first panic attack. Jones, 28, had just started his usual night shift as a patrol officer for the Broussard Police Department when his heart started racing and his palms grew sweaty. "Once I got on the road and started patrolling, I couldn't focus," Jones said. "I almost ran off the road and had to stop." Jones said he had received unwelcome, inappropriate texts and Snapchat messages from his police chief earlier that day. He would ultimately quit his job in March as a result of the alleged sexual harassment at the hands of Brannon Decou, who has served as the police chief of Broussard for 20 years. It's been almost five months since the night when Jones had a panic attack behind the wheel of his police unit. Jones said he's since shared evidence of the sexual harassment with his supervisor, the assistant police chief, the Broussard mayor and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, but nobody … [Read more...] about Broussard police chief faces allegations of sexual harassment by former officers
Prince William and Kate Middleton have paid tribute to "devoted consort" Prince Philip on the day of his funeral. In a tweet from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official Twitter account @KensingtonRoyal, the pair wrote: "The Duke of Edinburgh was a devoted consort to Her Majesty The Queen for nearly 70 years, from Her Majesty’s Accession in 1952 until his death." The couple were among the 30 guests to attend Philip's parred back funeral at St George's Chapel from 3pm, with the post going live shortly afterwards. It also included a photo of Philip's coffin inside the chapel with William and Kate bowing their heads in the background, and another of the pallbearers making their way inside. In a poignant moment following the service, William was seen walking and chatting with brother Harry, who flew in from California earlier in the week. It was the first time the brothers have spoken in public since Harry and his wife Meghan gave an explosive interview to Oprah Winfrey … [Read more...] about Prince William and Kate pay tribute to ‘devoted consort’ Philip on day of funeral
