Remember social media before Donald Trump's presidency? Dick Costolo does. He was Twitter's chief executive from 2010 to 2015. And despite being in the hot seat for certain content moderation decisions during his tenure, Costolo thinks that platforms have the right to take down whatever and whomever they want. Costolo argues that the key is transparency and companies acknowledging that every decision “ends up being subjective anyway” — so that no one is surprised “when we decide to treat the avatar who signed up on a Tuesday with zero followers differently than we treat The New York Times.”(No, we did not ask him to say that.)In this conversation, Kara Swisher talks to Costolo about content moderation pre- and post-Jan. 6, and how a decentralized, blockchain-based Twitter might create an information ecosystem in which “we all place our own filter over what the world looks like.” They also discuss Jack Dorsey's decision to step down as Twitter's chief executive in November. And in case the company's new leader, Parag Agrawal, is listening, Costolo shares some advice he received from Jeff Bezos when he first became Twitter's chief executive.You can find more information for all episodes at nytimes.com/sway, and you can find Kara on Twitter @karaswisher.

“Being the first woman in every single job I have done means, I get to see just what it means to be in a job that feels built for someone else. I always say, ‘We're all in the same storm, we're not in the same boat'”   This is what Unilever's chief human resources officer or CHRO Leena Nair said in an interview to Harper's Bazaar last month. It was before she was announced the head of Chanel.   This response of hers fits perfectly in her situation today. The 52-year-old was on Tuesday appointed the new global CEO of French fashion house Chanel. She will be based in London for her new role. As an India-born woman of colour, Nair's appointment at the helm of Chanel is certainly an outlier.    Chanel has for long been a tightly-controlled family fashion house. More importantly, unlike other India-born CEOs of global companies --- most recently Parag Agrawal who took charge of Twitter earlier this month --- Nair's educational and professional credentials are for the most part, ‘Made in India'.    She completed her schooling in Maharashtra's Kolhapur before earning a degree in electronics engineering from Walchand College of Engineering in Maharashtra's Sangli.   Nair went on to complete her MBA from the Xavier School of Management in Jamshedpur where she was a gold medallist. She joined Hindustan Unilever in 1992 as a management trainee.    Nair was among the few women employees to opt for a factory role. It took her to different factories of HUL in Kolkata, Tamil Nadu's Ambattur and Maharashtra's Taloja.    In her 30 years at HUL, she rose through the ranks and held posts such as the employee relations manager, HR manager and executive director HR.    After three years as head of leadership and organisational development in London, she was appointed as chief human resources officer or CHRO in 2016, with responsibility for the company's 1,50,000 people across more than 100 countries globally. Nair was also made a member of the Unilever Leadership Executive.   She became the first woman, first Asian and youngest ever CHRO at Unilever and member of the Unilever Leadership Executive. At HUL, over a period of 10 years starting 2010, she helped the company achieve a 50/50 gender balance across global leadership.    Her agenda at HUL also included a commitment to pay the living wage across its whole suppl

There seems to be no breather in sight for consumers, who are already facing the brunt of costly food and other household items. An RBI survey showed that households can expect inflation to rise further in the near and medium-term. On the other hand, wholesale prices surged to more than a decade high in November. Is it a cause of concern at macro level? Even as record-high wholesale inflation led to some anxiety in India, a news from distant France elevated everyone's mood here. Close on the heels of Parag Agrawal's elevation as CEO of Twitter, another India-born executive has now been chosen to head a global brand, Chanel. But there are few things which set Leena Nair apart from the other NRI achievers. Our next report explains how Nair is different and offers a peek into her long journey from Kolhapur to London.   From the change of guard in Chanel, let us see how the new coronavirus variant is putting policy makers across the globe in a fix. The sharp rise in inflation and the emergence of Omicron has complicated the picture for global central banks. Be it the US Fed or the ECB, each policy maker is looking to buy time to decide on all the details of adjusting their non-conventional policy tools. Let's look at the policy dilemma of different global banks and how investors are reading the developments, in our next report. Unlike the global policy makers, the market regulator in India does not seem to be in a fix when it comes to reforms. The Securities and Exchange Board of India recently proposed an overhaul of sorts of listing norms to bring in more transparency. One of the major changes that the market regulator suggested was to cap the amount companies, mainly start-ups, can raise under general corporate purpose or GCP. So what exactly is GCP and what do companies do with the amount raised under it? Find out all in this episode of the podcast.    Watch video

En publiant simplement "je démissionne de Twitter". Ainsi qu'un screenshot de la lettre qu'il a envoyé aux employés.C'est Parag Agrawal, le CTO, qui va devenir le nouveau PDG de la plate-forme. D'après Jack Dorsey c'est l'homme idéal.Jacques Dorsey quitte aussi son rôle au conseil d'administration. C'est donc un départ total.Il a toujours eu une autre entreprise : Square, spécialiste des paiements mobile.Cette double casquette a toujours été un sujet compliqué en interne chez Twitter.Le nouveau CEO de Twitter, devrait être dans la même lignée que Jack Dorsey.Il est spécialiste en intelligence artificielle, il est rentré dans l'entreprise en tant qu'ingénieur en publicité.Il est passionné par la Blockchain et les crypto-monnaie.On a parlé la semaine dernière de l'intégration des NFT sur la plate-forme Twitter cette nouvelle direction devrait accentuer encore c'est appréhension par la plate-forme.L'iFOP se lance sur TwitchComme tous les 5 ans, avec l'arrivée imminente des élections présidentielles, on ne parle presque plus que de ça.Les sondages. Les fameux sondages qui nourrissent le storytelling des media radio et TV. Les sondages qui de plus en plus inspirent la défiance et la méfiance.Parmi les différents institut de sondage on trouve l'IFOP.Institut français d'opinion publique, l'IFOP.Une boité crée en 1938 et détenues à 100% par des actionnaires privés.L'IFOP donc déboule sur Twitch.La vieille dame se lance dan l'arène. Intéressant !Ca se passe sur Twitch toutes les 2 semaines. Une émission qui s'appelle « Data Date ».Des émissions en direct avec des témoignages d'experts et surtout beaucoup d'interactions.twitchYoutube——Un réseau social de Donald TrumpBien que n'étant plus le président des États-Unis, Donald Trump continue de faire parler de lui.Il vient d'annoncer avoir levé 1 milliard de dollars pour créer son réseau social.Il veut l'appeler « Truth Social »La somme de 1 million de dollars devrait s'ajouter à celle déjà récupéré en septembre deux cents 93 millions de dollars.C'est la fusion entre l'entreprise Trump médias et Technologie Group qui récupère ce pactole pour lancer ce réseau social.Banni des réseaux sociaux traditionnels Donald Trump veut pouvoir se créer sa propre plate-forme.Il présente la future plate-forme comme une alternative à Facebook, Twitter et YouTube, plate-forme desquelles il est banni depuis le 6 janvier pour l'incitation à la violence dans l'assaut du Capitol.La plate-forme est même actuellement disponible en pré commande sur l'App Store et elle devrait être lancée au premier trimestre 2022.Prime recrute sa voix off sur TikTokPrime Vidéo, le Netflix d'Amazon, propose en ce moment une activation social media pour trouver la voix-off française de l'une de ses productions vidéo.Pas de casting mais plutôt un grand concours lancé sur TikTok. Du 1er au 6 décembre sur TikTok. Les participants peuvent tenter leur c chance en doublant des scènes du catalogue Prime Video : The Boys, Cendrillon,Upload…Activation utilise la fonction Duo de TikTok et propose donc de passer sa voix sur des extraits vidéos de série.Derrière cette campagne d'UGC hors format un hashtag #dubbingFactoryhttps://www.tiktok.com/tag/dubbingfactory?lang=frC'est vraiment bien pensé et les vidéos sont très funs à regarder.Nouvel outil Twitch contre le harcèlementOn le sait, dans tout ce qui est diffusion de vidéos en direct avec un chat, c'est très compliqué de contrôler ce qui se passe à l'intérieur.On l'a vu notamment dans le dernier événement, Ze Event , ou le chat peut vite s'enflammer.Ce 30 novembre, Twitch a annoncé l'introduction d'un système qui pourrait détecter les internautes malveillants.Jusque-là ce sont des modérateurs qui bannissent des personnes du chat qui seraient injurieuses ou haineuses.Le souci c'est que ces personnes peuvent recréer un autre compte anonyme et revenir sur les chaînes où ils ont été banni.Il y a déjà eu des soucis de vague de harcèlement raciste ou homophobes qui n'ont pas leur place sur la plate-forme.L'outil de Twitch est appelé Suspicious User Detection.Le principe est simple, c'est un algorithme fonctionnant avec une intelligence artificielle qui détectera des probables ou possibles fraudeurs.Dans ce cas les messages de ses possibles fraudeurs n'apparaîtront pas au public, mais seulement au propriétaire de la chaîne et à ses modérateurs.Ce qui est plutôt intelligent puisque si ses utilisateurs sont corrects ils pourront intégrer le chat public, si ce n'est pas le cas ils peuvent continuer à être surveillé ou banni par le modérateur ou le propriétaire.La plate-forme précise que ce n'est pas fiable à cent pour cent, c'est pour cela que la décision finale du bannissement doit revenir au propriétaire et aux modérateurs.. . .Le Super Daily est le podcast quotidien sur les réseaux sociaux.

Spotify je poslušao Adele umesto nas, Apple tužio NSO umesto nas, novi Snapdragon će nam tražiti lice i kada to mi ne tražimo, a Jack Dorsey više nije direktor Twittera, iako ni to nismo tražili. Iako su korisnici tražili da se automatsko nasumično preslušavanje albuma vrati na ono što jedino ima smisla, Spotify se prihvatio razuma tek kada je Adele to tražila. Apple je tužio NSO zato što su hakovali "naše" iPhone, što, kako stvari stoje, ipak ima utemeljenje. Jack Dorsey podneo je ostavku na mesto direktora Twittera, pa ostaje nada da će Parag Agrawal, njegov naslednik, uspeti da nastavi stvari koje je Dorsey započeo, poput usvajanja kriptovaluta ili decentralizacije. Na marginama 137. Tehnopolisa bavimo se novim Snapdragonom za sledeću godinu koji će, pored toga što će i dalje biti sporiji od ovogodišnjeg Appleovog A15, pokušavati da vam prepoznaje lice i tada kada vi to od njega niste tražili, australijskim zakonima i kineskim mobilnim tržištem u oktobru.

What Jack Dorsey's departure from Twitter means for Silicon Valley, the platform and its dedicated users. And how the new CEO, Parag Agrawal, could change the direction of the company. Read more:In a casually written tweet Monday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that he would be stepping down from his position. As the company's co-founder, he's been a Silicon Valley icon for 15 years, and he leaves behind a complicated legacy. Tech reporter Will Oremus says that his departure is shrouded in mystery and that the resignation letter he posted to Twitter did not explain whether he was voluntarily leaving the company or was ousted by investors. Dorsey's replacement is Parag Agrawal, the company's former chief technology officer. While he's well-liked by staff, he was an unexpected pick to head one of Silicon Valley's most fraught and politically embroiled social media companies — and it's up in the air whether his limited experience will limit his ability to navigate important and thorny questions around content moderation.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey is no longer the CEO of Twitter. Why did he leave? And what does the choice of his successor, Parag Agrawal, tell us about Twitter's future? Bloomberg's Kurt Wagner sits down with Recode's Peter Kafka to discuss Dorsey's tenure as CEO and the reasons behind his decision to step down. Then the New Yorker's Sheelah Kolhatkar joins the show to talk about the Biden administration's campaign to rein in Big Tech. Kolhatkar recently profiled Lina Khan, an antitrust academic who now heads up the FTC. Khan and other Biden appointees want to reframe antitrust law and shrink tech giants like Facebook, which was not part of Biden's election campaign. What changed?

Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said at a news conference that two of the wounded were undergoing surgery as of 5 p.m. Tuesday and that the six others were in stable condition. He identified the three students who were killed as a 16-year-old boy and two girls, ages 14 and 17. Authorities say they received a flood of 911 calls shortly before 1 p.m. about an attack at Oxford High School in Oxford Township, a community of about 22,000 people roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Detroit. McCabe said deputies took the shooting suspect — a 15-year-old sophomore — into custody without incident within five minutes of arriving at the school. He said the suspect's parents visited him where he's being held and advised their son not to talk to investigators, as is his right. He said as far as he knows, the suspect had no prior run-ins with law enforcement.” Public schools are not safe for your kids.

"We are angry at our government and at each other," Oz wrote in guest column published by The Washington Examiner. "We have not managed our crises as effectively as past generations. During the pandemic, I learned that when you mix politics and medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That's why I am running for the U.S. Senate: to help fix the problems and to help us heal." Oz, in a video tweeted Tuesday afternoon, specified that he is seeking the Republican nomination. Pennsylvania's Senate battle became a spectacle last week when former President Donald Trump's endorsed candidate, Sean Parnell, ended his campaign after his estranged wife was granted sole legal custody of their children in a case where she alleged abuse. Parnell denied the accusations. "Pennsylvania needs a conservative who will put America first,” Oz, echoing Trump, said in his announcement video. Oz, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania's medical school and Wharton School who as recently as 2020 lived in New Jersey, registered to vote in Pennsylvania last year at the home of his in-laws, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.” La County Sheriff Holding His Ground: https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1465507928241176580/photo/1 Can a city declare itself a republic? Calif. town just did According to News Nation Now: Fed up with COVID-19 regulations and vaccine mandates, the leaders of one California city have decided to take matters into their own hands. Oroville's City Council overwhelmingly voted to declare the town a “constitutional republic” earlier this month. What that means, according to the declaration, is: “Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens.” What does it mean in practice? Oroville's mayor told the East Bay Times it “doesn't change anything.” “It's simply reminding people what kind of government we live under and that they do have personal choices and freedoms,” Mayor Chuck Reynolds told the Times. Proponents of the constitutional republic told reporters they were especially upset with California's requirement that children 12 and older eventually get vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend school. However, even after this vote, schools in Oroville will still be regulated (and largely funded) by the state. Oroville isn't the only California city to try and take a stand against the state's COVID-19 policies. Earlier in the pandemic, two towns decided to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom's shutdown orders for certain businesses, reports the Los Angeles Times. They lost some funding from the state as a result, according to the paper. The desire to secede isn't unique to California, either. The Washington Times and a USA Today columnist noticed the trend in 2020, pointing out that rural pockets of blue states are often the ones who want out. A few Virginia counties said they wanted to join their more conservative friends in West Virginia, but Adam Dean, a history professor at the University of Lynchburg, called the prospect of getting approval from both state legislatures and Congress “extremely unlikely.” Some residents in southern Oregon and far northern California have also been trying to form a 51st state of Jefferson for nearly 80 years. But as The New York Times reports, the creation of the new state would not only require California and Oregon to give the OK — Congress would have to sign off, too. So can a city decide it's fed up with its home state and go it alone? The short answer is no, at least not by merely putting the matter to a city council vote. In theory, the city's citizens could take up arms and go to war to fight for independence. But it would literally take a civil war. And since cities don't have armies, it's easy to see why even a large metropolis would be easily outmatched — not to mention Oroville, California: population 20,000.

Biden Bans Travel to South America: If you recall, Biden tweeted this when Trump banned travel from China: Well now that Biden banned travel to/from South America, it is not racist, because Jen Psaki said so: Roll clip: https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1465411536801914881 File this under New Zealand has left the reservation: LA begins enforcing strict mandate requiring proof of vax https://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/la-begins-enforcing-strict-mandate-requiring-proof-vax-81457466?cid=social_fb_abcnp According to ABC news: “Enforcement began Monday in Los Angeles for one of the strictest vaccine mandates in the country, a sweeping measure that requires proof of shots for everyone entering a wide variety of businesses from restaurants to theaters and gyms to nail and hair salons. While the latest order aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus took effect Nov. 8, city officials spent the past three weeks providing business owners the information and resources business they need to comply. “Nobody wants to penalize anyone,” said Sharon Tso, the city's Chief Legislative Analyst, whose office drafted the enforcement rules. “That's why we've been prioritizing education.” A first offense will bring a warning but subsequent ones could produce fines running from $1,000 to $5,000. Inspectors with the Department of Building and Safety will enforce the mandate, and the city hopes to eventually get assistance from the LA County Department of Public Health, Tso said. She didn't immediately know if any warnings or citations were issued on Monday. Los Angeles is among a growing number of cities across the U.S., including San Francisco and New York City, requiring people show proof of vaccination to enter various types of businesses and venues. But rules in the nation's second-most-populous city, called SafePassLA, apply to more types of businesses and other indoor locations including concert halls, museums and convention centers. A sign reminding customers to be prepared to show their vaccine cards hangs at the Muddy Paw Coffee Shop in the Eagle Rock neighborhood, where owner Darren Laborie said he's thankful that the vast majority of his regulars have happily complied with the shifting regulations over the past year and a half. “We have to adapt to whatever rules are coming at us. And our customers go along with us,” Laborie said. Those that don't want to wear a mask or show vaccine proof can sit in the outdoor patio or take their coffees and pastries to go, he said. One year ago, Los Angeles was becoming the state's epicenter of the worst spike of the pandemic in California. By January an average of 500 people were dying statewide every day. To guard against another spike in cases, deaths and hospitalizations, the LA City Council voted 11-2 last month for the ordinance that requires people 12 and older to be fully vaccinated to enter indoor public spaces including sports arenas, museums, spas, indoor city facilities and other locations. Retail stores and shopping malls are exempt. Negative coronavirus tests within 72 hours of entry to those establishments would be required for people with religious or medical exemptions for vaccinations. Customers without proof can still use outdoor facilities and can briefly enter a business to use a restroom or pick up a food order. Business trade groups have said the mandate will sow confusion and could present safety concerns for employees tasked with checking customers' vaccination status. Laborie shares concerns that the rules could place “an undue burden” on small business owners. “A lot of businesses can't afford to have employees spending their time at the front door all the time. They just don't have the staffing,” he said. Melanie Bolen happily showed her vaccine card before having lunch inside Fred 62, an upscale diner in the city's Los Feliz neighborhood. “I mean, I'm fine with that," Bolen said. "If that's what's needed to help get things over with this pandemic, I'm all for it.” While many cold-weather states are seeing sharp increases in cases, California's per capita rate has been among the nation's lowest for two months and that has kept hospitalizations relatively low after a late-summer surge. In the last two weeks, Los Angeles County hospitalizations have fallen about 10%, mirroring the statewide trend. State forecasts show a continuing decline through Christmas. Among LA county's roughly 10 million people, 82% of eligible residents now have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and 74% of those eligible are fully vaccinated, according to public health officials.” Remember that in 2021, where we had lockdowns and access to a vaccine, we had more COVID deaths this year, than we did in 2020. Lockdowns don't work, the vaxx don't work, and all these health bureaucracies need to go! Twitter Crackdown: Video And Photo Sharing Banned Without Consent Under First Day With New CEO https://www.dailywire.com/news/twitter-crackdown-video-and-photo-sharing-banned-without-consent-under-first-day-with-new-ceo?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro According to the Daily Wire: “One day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey resigned from the company he founded about 16 years ago, Twitter, under new CEO Parag Agrawal has issued a new ban that restricts sharing videos or photos without consent on the platform. The new addition was listed on Twitter's blog on Tuesday, saying, “NEW: media of private individuals without the permission of the person(s) depicted.” The new policy is designed to “help curb the misuse of media to harass, intimidate, and reveal the identities of private individuals, which disproportionately impacts women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities.” “Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent. Publishing people's private info is also prohibited under the policy, as is threatening or incentivizing others to do so,” Twitter also noted. Twitter's guidelines will also leave room for interpretation based on “context.” “Our existing private information policy includes many exceptions in order to enable robust reporting on newsworthy events and conversations that are in the public interest,” Twitter's guidelines state.” Lastly, lets get an update on former disgraced Governor Cuomo and his brother “objective journalist” Chris Cuomo: Roll clip: https://www.today.com/video/chris-cuomo-s-link-with-former-ny-gov-andrew-cuomo-draws-new-focus-127500357987 What strikes me about all this, is that CNN claims to be an objective news source and yet they continue to hire journalist that cover up major news stories, or that masterbate on live company conference calls like Jeffrey Toobin did. CNN really is a cesspool of liars, molesters, and power hungry zealots. They really do hate the truth. Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

Does Parag Agrawal's elevation as CEO mean Twitter's coming of age?

Twitter has finally decided to transfer its reins from founders to professionals. India-born Parag Agrawal has succeeded co-founder Jack Dorsey as the CEO of the social media giant. So will a more diversified board, with an Indian at the helm of affairs, help the company at a time when it is aiming to double its revenue by 2023 and reinvent its image amid several allegations in recent times? In a statement, Dorsey said the company was ready to move on from its founders. The board of directors of Twitter unanimously selected Agarwal as CEO and a member of the board.   This was not Dorsey's first exit from the company. After co-founding the social media giant in 2006, Dorsey had been forced out in 2008. But he returned as CEO in 2015 after Dick Costolo stepped down. In 2020, Dorsey was accused of paying little attention to Twitter. Agrawal, meanwhile, had joined Twitter in 2011 with a focus on ad products. He became the first recipient of the company's “Distinguished Engineer” title. According to several media reports, as CTO, Agrawal encouraged Dorsey to allow Twitter to explore decentralisation and other related technologies.   A 2005 computer science and engineering alumnus of IIT Bombay, 37-year-old Agrawal is the youngest CEO leading a Standard & Poor's (S&P) 500 company.   Agarwal, a known face in Silicon Valley, has a long and tough road ahead. By the end of 2023, the company wants to have 315 million monetisable daily active users. It also wants to double its revenue by then. Apart from meeting the financial targets, Twitter will also have to do a balancing act when it comes to sensitive issues. In October this year, Twitter admitted that its algorithm was giving more space to right-wing politicians than left-leaning ones.   And in September last year, some Twitter users had pointed out that the platform's photo previews favoured white faces to black. They posted photos of a black person's face and a white person's face side by side to show that Twitter's photo previews showed white faces more often. The social media giant had to apologise for this goof-up too. Agrawal, who was the chief technology officer (CTO) then, had taken stock of the situation and admitted that the model needed “continuous improvement”.   Agrawal is also tasked with addressing one of the company's biggest challenges in recent times – content moderation. Around this time last year, Twitter had labelled some tweets from former US President Donald Trump as “misleading” and “violent”.   And earlier this year, the Indian government and Twitter were locked in a bitter stand-off. First, it was about Twitter choosing not to ban tweets and accounts related to farmers' protests, despite requests from the government. Later, the Indian government had accused Twitter of not complying with its new rules for social media intermediaries, and even threatened legal action against its India executives. The situation had cooled down only after Twitter appointed an executive based out of India. Watch Video

India's GDP grew by 8.4 per cent in the second quarter of this financial year. Boosted by rising vaccination, Asia's third-largest economy is seeing a rebound from a historic economic contraction last year. But is it all good news? We look at what the Q2 growth numbers mean for India's economic recovery and the risks ahead.   After encouraging GDP numbers, there is another piece of good news for the country. Social media giant Twitter has followed in the footsteps of Google and Microsoft to place an Indian-origin techie at its helm. Parag Agrawal, who until Sunday was the chief technology officer, has succeeded co-founder Jack Dorsey as the CEO of Twitter. Does Agrawal's elevation mean Twitter's coming of age, just as in the case of Microsoft when Satya Nadella took over.  Well, we have to wait to see how Agrawal takes forward Twitter's Bluesky project, decentralised social media protocol and NFT-based profile pictures. Meanwhile, frontline indices fell nearly four per cent in November, clocking their biggest monthly fall since March 2020. Renewed Covid scare, unfavourable risk-reward and possible change in interest rate scenarios made Indian equities less attractive during the month. However, analysts expect sectoral-rotation to take place from here on, and bet on defensive plays to support the markets.    The market may be in a defensive mood currently, but IPOs are a flavour of the season. The IPOs of Paytm and Nykaa kept people glued to the screens recently. Their listings in the primary market made a lot of news due to Paytm's poor showing and Nykaa's unexpected success. But ever wondered what is primary market and how is it different from the secondary market? Let's find out about all these in this podcast.  Watch Video

And them Cuomo boys are at it again; this time, a new scandal has embroiled Chris and Andrew with the younger brother apparently using his CNN resources to make life difficult for his brother's accusers.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced he is resigning from the platform he co-founded. While Dorsey's handling of First Amendment issues and censorship was bad, it appears his replacement may be even worse as CTO Parag Agrawal is set to take over for Dorsey. Just last year, Agrawal said Twitter's “role is not to be bound by the first amendment … focusing less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.” What does this change mean for Twitter and the future of free speech in the digital world? Based on what Agrawal has said, it appears more censorship is on the horizon. Speaking of censorship, the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell began today, and the judge issued a media-wide gag order, barring all press and spectators from the courtroom. One of the most important trials of the century is going on, and no one is allowed in the room. What are they trying to hide, and who does it serve?

Walmart Inc lost -1.57% after announcing that it will begin the search for a successor to Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Brett Biggs, who has been with the company for 22 years and became CFO on 31 December, 2015. However, Merck & Co (down -5.39%) was the largest drag on the Dow after Citi downgraded the stock to neutral from buy, saying in a research note that development struggles for the company's HIV drug were taking a bite out of Merck's long-term potential.

US equity markets rebounded as President Joe Biden told Americans the fight against the omicron variant of coronavirus won't involve “shutdowns or lockdowns.” - Dow up +237-points or +0.68% a day after recording its worst daily decline (-905-points or -2.53%) since 28 October, 2020. Walmart Inc lost -1.57% after announcing that it will begin the search for a successor to Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Brett Biggs, who has been with the company for 22 years and became CFO on 31 December, 2015. However, Merck & Co (down -5.39%) was the largest drag on the Dow after Citi downgraded the stock to neutral from buy, saying in a research note that development struggles for the company's HIV drug were taking a bite out of Merck's long-term potential.

Carter and Keri begin with a discussion of Christmas / "Capitalism Day," and Keri discusses how she participated in the war on Christmas when she was an SJW. Next, they mock the "omicron" variant just a bit, and get into a brief discussion about the uniqueness of Americans' distrust of their government. Prompted by Keri, Carter rants a bit about pragmatism, and then they call out Wikipedia for its intention to throw communism's horrific death count down the memory hole. A superchatter asks about the difference between investigative journalism and conspiracy theories, and then Carter reads some disturbingly woke quotes from Twitter's new CEO, Parag Agrawal. This prompts him to explain how many big tech firms like Twitter use certain words--harm, safety, healthy--as linguistic variables that can mean whatever is needed to advance the leftist political agenda. The duo then turns to the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, and Keri reveals her belief that Epstein is still alive. This leads to a discussion of a 1st grade teacher, "Professor Nalo," who has been bragging on Twitter about how her students ask her about her "queerness. They note that the leftist ideal of making children wards-of-the-state requires a blurring of boundaries between government agents (teachers) and family members. Finally, they close the show with some frivolity as Keri recounts a strange encounter at an antique shop in Texas.

Today’s Patreon-fueled shout-out comes from an anonymous supporter who wants to remind you once again that "We keep each other safe. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and keep your distance."On today’s show:Another one-day record for COVID-19 cases in Virginia and the Blue Ridge Health DistrictThe Virginia State Crime Commission votes 9-2 to recommend eliminating mandatory minimum sentencesAn update from Charlottesville Tree Commission The Chesapeake Bay Foundation gives a D+ to the estuary’s water qualityxVirginia has set another one-day record for COVID-19 cases reported by the Virginia Department of Health, with 5,387 today. The seven-day average for positive tests has increased to 16.7 percent. That number was 10.6 percent on December 6, when the impacts of the Thanksgiving holiday began to show up in the data. The post-Christmas surge is reflected in the Blue Ridge Health District which also sets a new record with 193 cases today. That’s 64 cases in Albemarle, 46 in Charlottesville, 26 in Fluvanna, 16 in Greene, 37 in Louisa, and 4 in Nelson. There are no deaths reported today. Today, the Blue Ridge Health District will begin administering vaccines at the new location set up at the former KMart at the intersection of Hydraulic Road and U.S. 29. “We anticipate 8,000+ people in Phase 1A and will be vaccinating hundreds this week and expanding clinics next week to keep increasing capacity for vaccinating as many people as possible,” said Kathryn Goodman, communications manager in the district. “At our greatest capacity in the Kmart location, we will have 18 nurses vaccinating people in 10 minute appointments from 9am-4:30pm multiple times per week.” Goodman said that guidelines for Phase 1B and Phase 1C will be released later this week. Governor Ralph Northam will address Virginia at 2 p.m today. Source:Virginia Department of Health*Democrats have held on to two seats in the General Assembly in special elections held yesterday. In the 2nd District race to replace Jennifer Carroll Foy, Democrat Candi King defeated Republican Heather Mitchell 4,386 votes to 4,123 votes, or 51.4 percent to 48.4 percent. In the 90th District, Democrat Angelia Williams Graves won by a more comfortable margin against Republican Sylvia Marie Bryant. Graves got 63.5 percent of the vote to Bryant’s 36.4 percent. That race was to replace Joe Lindsey, who resigned to become a judge. Source: State Board of Elections*At recording time, Charlottesville City Council is holding an emergency meeting in closed session. The meeting comes a day after news broke that the firm Ralph Andersen and Associates has stopped work on a search for a new city manager.  Let’s hear the call to that meeting from Councilor Heather Hill. The official call cites the discussion states it will be for “‘discussion or consideration of one or more prospective candidates for City Council,” “discussion of a public contract involving the expenditure of public funds,” “discussion or consideration of the performance of one or more city councilors,” and consultation with legal council about one or all of the above. But that meeting will not be Charlottesville’s first meeting of 2021. That honor goes to the Tree Commission which met yesterday to discuss several items and get updates. One of them was an update on the PLACE Design Task Force, a group created by a previous City Council in March 2012 to advise Council on urban design issues. That body has been pondering its existence, and here’s Mark Rylander, who serves on both PLACE and the Tree Commission.“The last few meetings have consisted of strategizing among ourselves how to best be useful,” Rylander said. “PLACE was originally charged with reporting to Council and now is sort of under the [Neighborhood Development Services] umbrella which means that without sort of more assertive planning by PLACE itself, as a group it will sort of morph into an advisory body that chases after whatever NDS wants them to look at.” In November, Parag Agrawal accepted an offer to be the new director of Neighborhood Development Services, but he decided instead to take a similar job in Prince William County,  according to the Daily Progress.This year, Council will need to decide what to do with the West Main Streetscape, a project conceived of in 2012 at the request of PLACE members at the time to replace an earlier conceptual design for a street that had been anticipated to see several large buildings constructed. Now, the project has a cost estimate of tens of millions at a time when the city is coming close to its debt capacity. “It’s becoming apparent that maybe the city can’t afford everything that was planned for the West Main Street project, and it’s a sensitive topic because a lot of work has gone into it, but that’s potentially what PLACE will be working on,” Rylander said.  The Tree Commission also discussed their annual report, which will unveil the percentage of the city’s land mass covered by trees, a term known as the “tree canopy.” Higher levels of tree canopy can reduce heat in urban communities and the Tree Commission is working to educate the public on this point, especially as the city works on a climate action plan.“This Commission really sees its mission as having fully evolved, not beyond its charge, but that we are looking things beyond aesthetics and beauty and even just tree types, that we really are undertaking larger issues,” said Brian Menard, the commission’s chair. Menard noted that the Tree Commission celebrated its 10th anniversary, and that the Commission is poised to be part of the conversations on social justice and climate change. The report will be presented to the Council at their meeting on January 19. *A 13-member body that makes recommendations on public safety policy has voted 9-2 to advise the state government to remove laws that require judges to incarcerate people for a minimum period of time. Before their vote, the Virginia State Crime Commission was briefed on the topic and learned that there are 224 distinct offenses that require mandatory minimum sentences, 162 of which are felonies and 62 are misdemeanors. (agenda)The idea had the support of Fairfax’s Deputy Public Defender, Andy Elders. He gave several reasons why he thought all mandatory minimum sentences in Virginia should be abolished.“The first is that the threat of mandatory minimum sentences distorts our legal process,” Elders said. “Jury trials in Virginia are now extraordinarily rare and in 2019 as we discussed during the special session last year, only 1.3 percent of criminal convictions come from jury trials. One of the reasons for that is because a prosecutor can threaten a five or ten year mandatory minimum in some cases or even life, while simultaneously offering a shorter sentence as part of a plea agreement. The effect on the accused is overwhelming.”  Elders said there is no evidence that mandatory minimums have reduced crime. However Delegate Les Adams (R-16), said that data is inconclusive and he voted against a motion for the commission to recommend elimination of mandatory minimums for all 224 offense until there was more study.“To give it sort of the imprimatur of the Commission, I don’t know if that’s appropriate,” Adams said. “I don’t see how elimination of the mandatory minimum sentence would be something that would gain widespread support by our colleagues in the House and Senate.” The other vote against the motion was from Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone, who was opposed to dropping mandatory minimums for assaults on law enforcement officers. “In our current environment that we’ve gone through in the last six months or so,  though I have not done the research, I would suspect that assault on law enforcement has probably gone up,” Boone said. The next step is for bills to be filed in the General Assembly to turn the recommended changes into law. The General Assembly session  convenes on January 13. Source: Virginia Crime Commission*A non-profit organization that monitors the ecological health of the Chesapeake Bay has released its annual report and has given another D+ grade. Will Baker is the president of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. “The Chesapeake Bay system is still dangerously out of balance but there is hope for improvement as pollution levels decline and the dead zone retreats,” Baker said. The dead zone refers to an area where there is no oxygen and thus no aquatic of plant life. Six states and the District of Columbia are under a deadline to significantly reduce pollution and improve water quality by 2025 in a process known as the TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load). In Virginia, that requires all localities to significantly reduce levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment that enter waterways. Locally, that includes investments such as $48 million to upgrade the Moores Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, a project completed in 2012. “The current D+ is a sober reminder that the road ahead remains steep and the clock is ticking,” Baker said.  He said Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and D.C. have all made advances, but Pennsylvania and New York are not on track to meet their goals.

Greetings and are you ready to alight your bonfire? For it is Guy Fawkes Day, and today we remember remember the fifth of November! Oh wait. What’s that? I’m being told that this is America, and it’s a different kind of November 5th, with the presidential election still not quite resolved. What will happen today? Who knows? But, we’re in history, and this is the Charlottesville Community Engagement newsletter and newscast for today.*Seventh District Representative Abigail Spanberger will most likely return to Congress having been re-elected in a close race against Republican Nick Freitas. With all precincts in and at least 89 percent of mail-in and early voting ballots in, Spanberger got just over 5,000 more votes, or 50.5 percent of the vote. However, Freitas is not ready to concede.“Our campaign will be waiting until the canvass officially concludes on Friday, at which we will be making an appropriate statement,” Frietas wrote on Twitter.  Spanberger declared victory last night.“It has been the honor of my life to serve our community in Congress, to represent the people of our ten counties and I thank you all for putting your trust in me again and re-electing me for another two years,” Spanberger said. “As we celebrate tonight I know there are many who cast a different vote and who volunteered for a different candidate and I know they are disappointed. I hope over time I will earn your trust as a representative even as we disagree.”As of this recording, neither of the candidates for the presidency have won the required number of electoral votes. Spanberger addressed voters in a live stream Wednesday evening*There are another 1,366 cases of COVID-19 reported today by the Virginia Department of Health. The seven-day average for new daily cases is now at 1,288. The seven-day rate for positive cases has increased to 5.8 percent for all of Virginia. In the Blue Ridge Health District, there are another 19 cases today with seven from Charlottesville, five from Louisa, four from Albemarle, two in Fluvanna and one from Greene. It has been two weeks since a new fatality has been reported in the district. The seven-day average for positive PCR tests has decreased to 1.9 percent in the district. All of Virginia’s health districts are considered to be at moderate or substantial community transmission, with higher burdens reported in the Central, Southwest and Near Southwest regions. The director of the Roanoke and Alleghany Health Districts has called for high schools in those communities to halt contact sports due to increasing numbers of COVID cases. Dr. Cynthia Morrow cited “core indicators” from the Centers for Disease Control that are in the red zone. As of yesterday, Alleghany had 462.8 cases per 100,000 people over the past 14 days. The positivity percentage over 14 days was at 15.7 percent. The Roanoke district’s numbers were 497.5 and 10.8 percent respectively.How is your part of Virginia doing? Check the CDC page for your locality.  “We are for the second week in a row in high burden, increasing trends of substantial transmission,” Morrow said during a press briefing yesterday. “In addition, the contiguous regions to us are also in high burden, increasing trends of substantial transmission. We are about as high risk right now and with these metrics we really should be operating at phase 1, phase 2 practice.”Morrow said she talked to school superintendents in the area on Tuesday.“They asked us how we felt about close contact sports such as wrestling and even basketball  and we have to say that we would applaud any effort that they have to reduce transmission by not having those sporting events,” Morrow said.  For the city of Charlottesville, the metrics are currently much lower, with 201.6 cases per 100,000 and  the positive percentage over the past 14 days is at 1.1 percent. For Albemarle County, those numbers are at 112.2 and 2.1 percent. *A subcommittee of the city’s Housing Advisory Committee gave an initial review Wednesday of a draft affordable housing plan put together by consultants as part of the overall Comprehensive Plan update known as Cville Plans Together. City Council and the Planning Commission will hold a work session on the 133-page draft plan on November 10. Subcommittee members were asked to give initial impressions. Christopher Murray represents the development community and he said the plan didn’t seem to address economic issues.“The supply and demand element that is not acknowledged is the cost of land itself, the availability of land,” Murray said, adding it calls for a land bank but doesn’t contain enough information about land trusts.Ridge Schuyler, dean of community self-sufficiency programs at Piedmont Virginia Community College, said the plan should also acknowledge ways for households to create more wealth. “It’s not just the cost of housing but its the amount of income you have to afford that housing and besides one throwaway sentence there was no focus on economic opportunity and helping people earn more income,” Schuyler said. Among other things, the plan calls for a dedicated $10 million a year in capital funds for affordable housing projects. Last month, the city gave the final approval of $3 million in funds for public housing renovation and redevelopment as well a final approval for a $5.5 million forgivable loan to the Piedmont Housing Alliance for the first phase of the redevelopment of Friendship Court.  In all there are to be four phases “The document does a good job of highlighting [Charlottesville Housing and Redevelopment Authority] and public housing redevelopment but does not once mention Friendship Court redevelopment and I think that’s a gap,” said Piedmont Housing director Sunshine Mathon. “I would like to get into a little bit about the proposed $10 million a year because I think there are some nuances to that number that we should flesh out and make sure we are all clear on.” Realtor S. Lisa Herndon wanted more emphasis in the plan on pathways to home ownership. “I definitely believe 100 percent believe that there are multiple ways to create home ownership especially looking at subsidies and I truly am against simply just having a great focus on redeveloping public housing,” Herndon said. “I think that is a model that truly needs to be rethought of.” Chris Meyer said he was concerned about a call in the plan for seeking state legislation to allow for rent control. “I was a little concerned when I saw a lot of new suggestions on regulations of landlords and rental properties including a cap on home rentals or regulated rental prices and other things,” Meyer said. “I did like though that they started talking about helping tenants engage in those processes.” City Councilor Michael Payne said he wanted to see more information in the plan about land banks and land trusts.“I think the funding is also a really important question especially in light of our budget challenges and given the election results in the Senate I also think that the likelihood of additional money from the federal government is also a lot lower,” Payne said. You can watch all of the HAC Policy Subcommittee meeting here. Learn more about the plan *The city has hired a community development director from Georgia to serve as its next Director of Neighborhood Development Services. Parag Agrawal currently works in Milton, a city of about 40,000 people in Fulton County. Before that he served in similar positions in Rhode Island and Bridgeport, Connecticut. “Parag is a experienced development professional who has a breadth of experience that’s very needed in the Neighborhood Development Services department,” said interim city manager John Blair. Agrawal said he looks forward to beginning work on November 30. “The Department has an excellent team of staff members who are very committed, dedicated, and knowledgable and are working on some very important projects that will make our city more sustainable and more affordable,” Agrawal said. “I will say that the city of Charlottesville is such a great city because the residents of Charlottesville are so actively engaged.” Agrawal replaces Alexander Ikefuna who was demoted in February but will remain with the city. Parag Agrawal begins work in Charlottesville on November 30 *There are two meetings today. The Natural Heritage Committee will see a presentation on wildlife corridors from the Virginia Transportation Research Council from one of the state’s leading experts on reducing vehicle collisions. Earlier this year, the General Assembly passed legislatio n to create a Wildlife Corridor Action Plan to identify locations where steps can be taken. (meeting info)The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission will meet at 7 p.m. They will be introduced to a new search tool that’s designed to help people find affordable housing. That’s a project of the TJPDC’s Regional Housing Partnership. According to the executive director’s report, there will be a discussion on altering the name of the TJPDC. The Thomas Jefferson Health District will become the Blue Ridge Health District on January 1. The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library system could also soon get a new name.“We have in the past considered both a change from Thomas Jefferson as well as change from Planning District Commission to either Regional Commission or Regional Council,” Boyles wrote. “Should you desire staff to pursue options, we could report back to you in February.”And while not strictly a government meeting, the Center will have a virtual presentation from the owners of the Ragged Mountain Running Shop on their walk last year across England. That begins at 4 and is open to all. (info)Thanks for reading. Want to support this work?
