WashingTECH Tech Policy Podcast with Joe Miller
Trump appears to endorse QAnon; 'Incel' movement grows online; Florida petitions Supreme Court on content moderation - Tech Law & Policy This Week

Hey everybody, I'm Joe Miller and here's what's going on in the world of tech law & policy.    ADL Report: Spotify has a white supremacist problem References to Hitler, Pepe the Frog, Tucker Carlson talking about the “great replacement” anti-immigration theory — it looks like songs that contain them are totally fine for Spotify, which the Anti Defamation League finds in a new report has verified at least 40 bands and musicians with hateful lyrics and imagery on their album covers. Also, it's super-easy to get verified on Spotify, even though the company claims to have a handle on this stuff. The Washington Post has the full report.   Trump appears to nod to QAnon The Washington Post's Technology 202 newsletter reports that Donald Trump appears to be showing increased support for QAnon, the conspiracy theory movement that accuses high profile democrats are running some kind of a pedophilia ring in which they drink the blood of children. The Post notes that this conspiracy theory has moved from the fringes to the mainstream political discourse and underscores the inefficacy of social media platforms to catch subtle references to disinformation campaigns. At an Ohio rally on Saturday, Trump took the stage to music that sounded a lot like music associated with QAnon, which many see as a “wink and a nod” to QAnon supporters. Trump has subtly endorsed QAnon on social media, but took a more explicit approach on his own social media platform – Truth Social – by including an image of himself wearing a QAnon lapel pin.   Center for Countering Digital Hate: Incel movement is growing online Another movement that appears to be becoming more mainstream is the so-called incel, or “involuntary celibate” movement is growing online according to a report from the Center for Countering Digital Hate , which also names Google, YouTube and Cloudflare for facilitating the channel, which has 2.6 million monthly site visits and over a million posts. Lots of conversations going on there about mass murder and sexually assaulting pre-pubescent girls.  And the Washington Post also reports that a cop was convicted in Indiana for texting with, what he thought, was a 14-year-old girl, and attempting to meet her at an Olive Garden for sex. It turns out it wasn't a 14-year old girl at all – it was one of a growing number of vigilantes who bait guys like this and then record themselves shaming them, sharing it on the internet. According to the Post, the police had been reluctant to work with these citizen vigilantes to bring alleged pedophiles to trial. But the police are showing increased interest in working with these groups, according to the Post.   BSR: Facebook suppressed Palestian posts during last year's Gaza war Consulting firm Business for Social Responsibility published a report demonstrating how Facebook suppressed posts made by Palestinians during last year's war between Israel and Hamas – it did so by unfairly removing posts in Arabic at a disproportionate rate – posts that had no apparent connection to Hamas at all – compared to those made in Hebrew.    Florida takes anti-content moderation case to Supreme Court The state of Florida wants the Supreme Court to decide whether states can pass laws that prevent social media companies from blocking or limiting certain types of speech – such as some of the speech I just mentioned - hate speech, disinformation – you know, things like that. Florida's petition comes on the heels of the Fifth Circuit upholding a similar law in Texas last week. Florida wants to ban companies from doing this. We published a report in late 2020 on the pattern of conservatives, throughout history, seeking to ban liberal speech, starting almost as soon as European immigrants landed in the new world and wanted to control Native Americans, not to mention slaves. America's entire history is one of suppressing the voices of people of color – not the other way around.   Meanwhile, Microsoft has decided it won't flag disinformation and TikTok apparently enforces its content moderation policies more leniently in favor of users with millions of followers.   Senate confirms new OSTP director, Arati Prabhakar In a 56-40 vote with 10 Republicans on board, the Senate has for the first time confirmed a woman, immigrant, and person of color to lead the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). Previously, Arati Prabhakar led the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.  Dr. Alondra Nelson, a prominent scholar who appeared on this podcast back on Episode 70, had been performing the duties of the OSTP Director role since previous diretor Eric Lander stepped down in February amid accusations that he mistreated subordinates. Dr. Nelson will continue in her role as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director for Science and Society.

Did you know that only 2% of the people making clothing in the fashion world earn a living wage? That means 98% of the clothes we wear are made by someone that cannot make ends meet, and 75% of them are women. These are women working 60-70 hours a week, six days a week, just to live. How crazy is that? We can all do our part in empowering women and ending poverty. In today's episode, we welcome Barrett Ward, the CEO of ABLE Clothing, and Marissa Pardo, ABLE's VP of brand marketing. In order to continually and increasingly empower women, they make beautiful, long-lasting, wonderful products that we all want to buy, regardless of their mission. But doesn't it also feel great when you know there's a purpose or story tied to your every purchase?  I've pretty much known Barry and Marissa since 2009 through Mocha Club, an international community committed to fighting extreme poverty in Africa. Aside from going down memory lane, we discuss how ABLE creates economic opportunities for women, which they believe is the key to ending generational poverty around the world.  In this episode, you will hear: The importance of understanding cost per wear What you can do to prevent things from landing in a landfill How they define “responsibility” at ABLE Who makes ABLE products locally and abroad How their manufacturing process works Subscribe and Review Have you subscribed to our podcast?

Dr. Michael Martin is a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California at San Francisco. He is also President of Physicians for Social Responsibility, the United States affiliate of an organization of medical doctors that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985, and the founder of Physicians Against Red Meat. And he has an important lesson for us: we have the power to make change. Whether it's educating ourselves about the existential threats posed by nuclear weapons, or pushing our institutions to switch to plant-based foods, the future will be defined by each of us. The choices we make, in turn, can reverberate for generations. So we better make the right ones! Mike is one of the smartest people I know, with a diverse set of interests that are sort of astonishing. For example, beyond nuclear weapons and red meat, Mike has done important research on the impact of sunlight on skin. (Preview: His research suggests that 90% – !!! – of all age-associated skin damage is caused by sunlight, and not by aging alone!) This is a great conversation to listen to, especially on a week that many of us are asking our friends to join us in a plant-based meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Podcast Intro: We are now experiencing extreme weather events and conditions predicted for 30 years or more. And this is just the beginning. This is the hour when Mother Nature gets rolling.  The important thing for people to realize is that the EPA has many levers under the Toxic Substances Control Act. For example, they can regulate the industry with a fee and dividend so that they charge taxes on the fossil fuel industry. And those taxes are 100% refunded to the public, based on the public's financial needs.  Dr. Lise Van Susteren is an expert on climate change's physical and psychological impacts and was behind implementing the Toxic Substances Control Act. Today, Cate and Lise Van Susteren will talk about the power of the Toxic Substances Control Act and its effect on large industries, how politics is hugely involved in protecting the environment, and the emotional effect on every individual. What you'll get out of tuning in: How does Toxic Substance Control Act work? How large can the Toxic Substances Control Act affects industries? How the Politics block things, not the public? How do environmental problems affect an individual's emotional state? Links/CTA: Sign the petition here >>> CPR Initiative All the FAQs about the petition >>> FAQs Read what Wash Post columnist Eugene Robinson wrote Leonardo DiCaprio With Elon Musk Deciding that carbon dioxide is a toxic substance defined by law would only be the first step. The EPA would have to formulate and implement rules that could, for example, impose a fee on carbon emissions and require companies to remove carbon from the atmosphere they have already expelled. But it's all there in black and white in the Toxic Substances Control Act, which passed and was amended with bipartisan support. Textualists will have to tie themselves in knots to explain why the law's words don't mean what they clearly say. Highlights: Cate tells her story when she is at Carleton College in the year 1995. Cate tells her story about when she was in the Massachusetts high schools Cate tells her insights about Elon Musk's Electric Cars Timestamps: [3:08] Toxic Substance Control Act [8:34] Scale of Industry [14:42] The Political World that blocks things [20:11] Growing Problem in emotional toll on individuals and community [22:46] Organization Cate started in Highschool [30:11]  Can the next administration reverse the Toxic Substances Control Act [31:16] What can people do [33:19] Elon Musk's Electric Cars Quotes: Frankly, it's not the public so much anymore. It's the political world that is blocking things. And it's just a few people.  You get the people who care the most, are the most sensitive, and they'll become the most depressed and despondent on not wanting to reproduce.  If we want to change society, it's by connecting with the people that were connected to. So that's one of the key elements that people don't always realize.  We have the power to design the future the way we want, the way we know, and we should, ethically.  We're spending about $150 billion a year on cleanup. And suppose you take the national average inflation-adjusted. In that case, that's about three times the amount in the 40 years before the last five years and three times the annual amount we used to need to clean up after extreme weather. Guest Bio: Lise Van Susteren Dr. Lise Van Susteren is a general and forensic psychiatrist in Washington, DC, and an expert on the physical and psychological impacts of climate change. In 2011 she co-authored “The Psychological Effects of Global Warming on the U.S. – Why the US Mental Health System Is Not Prepared”. Van Susteren is a Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University and has been a consultant to the Executive Branch of the US government profiling world leaders. After receiving her medical degree from the University of Paris she practiced medicine in West Africa, at community health centers and homeless shelters in metropolitan Washington DC. In addition to community organizing on climate issues, Van Susteren serves on the Boards of Earth Day Network, and Physicians for Social Responsibility and is a co-founder of “Climate Psychiatry Alliance,” and “Climate Psychology Alliance – North America “, professional groups dedicated to promoting awareness and action on climate from a mental health perspective. Van Susteren is the expert witness on the psychological damages to young people from inaction on climate in Juliana v US Government, in Held v Montana and in the European Court of Human Rights.  She is a frequent contributor to television, radio, and print media. In 2006 Dr. Van Susteren sought the Democratic nomination to the US Senate from Maryland. Her book, “Emotional Inflammation – Discover Your Triggers and Reclaim Your Equilibrium During Anxious Times” was published in April 2020.

We have been paying a lot of attention to the January 6th Committee investigating the insurrection at the Capitol. With a break until the hearings resume in September, we wanted to take stock of what we have learned so far. But since the last hearing there have been so many developments on multiple fronts connected to former President Donald Trump like the FBI searching Mar-A-Lago, and connected to the committee like Liz Cheney losing her GOP primary in Wyoming. We wanted to talk about them all, so we caught up with Ben Berger, Associate Professor of Political Science at Swarthmore College and Executive Director of The Lang Center for Civic & Social Responsibility.

When we first decided to launch the Humanly Possible: Future of Work Conversations podcast, it was right in the middle of a pandemic (October 2020), and I had a burning need to use my platform, my knowledge, and my network to have transformative discussions around the world of work. The world of work continues to change, and the podcast has reached more than 50 countries with more than 50 inspiring guests (You all inspire me every single day). And we now have a following of listeners who are in positions to address and inspire transformative conversations around how work and business can be a catalyst for social impact. We've covered topics around wellness, justice, anti-racism, psychological safety, equity, inclusion leadership, and sustainable culture building, and it's become clear to me that we're no longer talking about the future of work. The future of work is here, and we must shift the conversation to action and accountability. So, I have some news – we've decided to shift the focus and name of the podcast. Here's why: This shift has been on my mind for a while. It's been happening slowly and represents how I view my platform and impact on this work. I believe the workplace needs to be talked about as a system that creates a ripple effect into entire lives, generations, and communities. We envision a world in which companies exist to better employee experience, not just customer experience because we believe that human-centered workplaces create stronger communities and societies.  A new and refined premise of this podcast is that when you adopt the social responsibility of creating employees that go home happy and create impact in their communities, better outcomes are created — at every level. It all comes down to this. The name of the podcast: "Humanly Possible – Future of Work Conversations Podcast" will be changing to "Social Responsibility at Work", because we hold the belief that the Best Workplaces of today and tomorrow will fundamentally change hearts and minds about what work means, challenge-tired leadership paradigms, and view their platforms as responsible, conscious, and sustainable vehicles to create social impact. AT WORK in this context means, of course, that we will talk about social responsibility in the world of work but also signifies the action, the accountability and the solutions that we'll provide that listeners can actively put TO WORK within their sphere of influence. So, what can you expect moving forward? The podcast is known to be real, conversational, and actionable. In my experience, this has been an intentional differentiation that makes these discussions so much more human and relatable.  We'll be focused more narrowly on bringing in diverse and emerging thought-leaders in the areas of conscious business and sustainable leadership practices. Specifically, we'll be seeking out experts and changemakers that can point to solutions that will reframe our thinking, actions, and behaviors. You've come this far with me, so I hope you join for this next leg of my podcasting journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Podcast Intro: When it comes to climate change, we've all heard about droughts and flooding and the impact on agriculture and infrastructure from extreme weather events such as hurricanes. However, we may not hear as much about climate change's physical and mental health consequences. Natural disasters can negatively impact health and emotional well-being. People who are affected by extreme weather events and slow-moving disasters, such as droughts, face a wide range of challenges in their lives. Mental health repercussions of climate change events include mild stress and anguish, high-risk coping behaviors such as increased alcohol use, and occasionally mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Dr. Lise Van Susteren is an expert on climate change's physical and psychological impacts. She earned her Ph.D. in Geography at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, and has been researching climate change since 2007. She has written several books on the subject, including The Heat Is On: The Science, Politics, and Solutions to Global Warming (2016) and The Climate Crisis: Dispatches from the Front Lines (2017). In this episode, she shares knowledge on climate change, how it affects the health of many people, and what actions we must take to get better.

In 2011 she co-authored "The Psychological Effects of Global Warming on the U.S. - Why the US Mental Health System Is Not Prepared". Van Susteren is a Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University and has been a consultant to the Executive Branch of the US government profiling world leaders. After receiving her medical degree from the University of Paris she practiced medicine in West Africa, at community health centers and homeless shelters in metropolitan Washington DC. In addition to community organizing on climate issues, Van Susteren serves on the Boards of Earth Day Network, and Physicians for Social Responsibility and is a co-founder of "Climate Psychiatry Alliance," and “Climate Psychology Alliance – North America “, professional groups dedicated to promoting awareness and action on climate from a mental health perspective. Van Susteren is the expert witness on the psychological damages to young people from inaction on climate in Juliana v US Government, in Held v Montana and in the European Court of Human Rights.  She is a frequent contributor on television, radio, and in print media. In 2006 Dr. Van Susteren sought the Democratic nomination to the US Senate from Maryland. Her book, “Emotional Inflammation – Discover Your Triggers and Reclaim Your Equilibrium During Anxious Times” was published in April 2020.

How do we move smarter and more quickly? So it's not just about doing more action constantly.

So it's growing, and the distribution of those impacts is unequal as well, and they tend to be mostly in developing countries where the impacts are felt the greatest. So we do have this interesting thing where in the Netherlands, the impacts are felt the lowest, yet concerns are highest and support for climate things are happening. And in other parts of the world, like Argentina or Mexico, we have very high levels of personal impact, and the concern levels sometimes are middling. So we're in a very strange time of unequal distribution, both of impact and also potential solutions at hand, but that will also, I think, lead to more interesting conversations going forward."https://globescan.comhttps://allinbook.net
