Google subsidiary Jigsaw will launch a campaign next week to tackle misinformation in Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic about Ukrainian refugees, based on research by psychologists at two British universities.

Working with Jigsaw, psychologists from the universities of Cambridge and Bristol created 90-second clips designed to "vaccinate" people against harmful content on social networks.

The campaign is designed to build resilience to anti-refugee narratives in partnership with local NGOs, fact-checkers, academics and disinformation experts.

The spread of misleading and false information in the United States and Europe through social media networks has led various governments to push for new laws to stop disinformation campaigns.

Paris has decided to make more visible its commemoration of the St Bartholomew massacre of Protestants 450 years ago on 24 August 1572, by renaming a park in the city centre.

The St Bartholomew massacre is a black spot on French history, with few public commemorations. The City of Paris decided to commemorate the start of the massacre by renaming a park in the centre of the city and dedicating it to the victims.

On 24 August 1572, on the festival of St Bartholomew, Parisian Catholics hunted down and killed nearly 3,000 Protestants, known as Huguenots.

The massacre then spread across France, leaving between 10,000 and 30,000 Huguenots dead.

За гуманизм и дело мира бесстрашно борется сатира

События последних нескольких дней как-то не вызвали у меня желания высказаться по их поводу, тем более что о существовании самой Дарьи я только из этих новостей и узнал. Но сегодня, почитав комментарии Невзоровых-Шендеровичей и некоторых других властителей российских «либеральных» умов, не могу не зафиксировать для себя очередную стадию их оскотинивания.

Во-первых, они считают, что насильственная смерть — это оправданное наказание за неправильные слова и мысли.

ЦРУ опубликовало Индекс Тотальной Фертильности за 2022 год

https://www.cia.gov/the-world-factbook/field/total-fertility-rate/country-comparison

На первом месте с большим отрывом страна с совершенно невозможным названием Нигер. Женщины в среднем рождают там 6.82 ребенка. Далее следуют Ангола (5.83) и Конго (5.63). Вообще африканские страны занимают первые 25 мест и лишь на 15 место втиснулся Афганистан с скромным индексом 4.62.

Последние 3 места в списке занимают успешные дальневосточные страны:
Тайвань - 1 08

Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Sweden joined the Netherlands in the statement, calling the raids "part of a worrying reduction of space for civil society in the Occupied Palestinian Territory." The statement called the actions unacceptable.

Швеция: Мужчина убит и проходящая мимо женщина получила серьезные ранения в результате стрельбы в торговом центре Emporia в Мальмё в пятницу в 5 часов вечера. Киллер — 15-летний подросток из Гётеборга.

Убитый - известный полиции преступник, за голову которого конкуренты назначили плату.

Убийца - известный полиции преступник, сбежавший из "Дома заботы о сложных подростках." В Швеции обычно, что заказные убийства выполняются подростками т.к. наказания, которые они получают легки и скорее символичны: получит 4-5 лет в доме заботы.

Тяжелораненная женщина - 39-летняя туристка из Норвегии, по мнению полиции, оказавшаяся "в неправильном месте в неправильное время" (в 5 часов вечера в торговом центре).

Куба переживает невиданный по глубине экономический кризис. Настроения в народе депрессивные, горькие и грозные

По всей стране электричество веерно отключается каждый день, причём регулярно на 20 часов в день (хотя чаще на 6-10-12 часов). Продукты, которых и так не хватает (в стране карточная система распределения), портятся на жаре немедленно, спекулянты взвинчивают цены на продукты, доставляемые ими из-за рубежа.

Многие кубинцы пытаются с бежать с острова. Цифры беженцев с Кубы побили все рекорды – включая все предыдущие волны бегства с острова.

Положение на Кубе обостряется, хотя в туристических зонах пока спокойно, но…
Положение на Кубе обостряется и ухудшается, чем это грозит туризму, пока сложно сказать, но ждать улучшения смысла нет.
