Smashed Face

Could a long outage, and leaked internal documents indicate a slow and steady demise of a company we may not recognize?

While the whole world wasn’t watching, was the service and connectivity outage affecting Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and few other services owned by the same company a smash and a slap in the face?

Will a tech giant ever return to its former space and save face, or are all Zuckers doomed to drown in a sea of unchecked misinformation and hatred for American family values?

Facebook is a worldwide online social media and global networking service owned by Facebook, but I am over and out of there.

The CBS New Program  60 Minutes says Facebook puts profit over safety and amplifies the worst of human nature.

The platform also owns #Instagram and #WhatsApp, to get messaging and calling for free, available on phones all over the world.

The case for deleting our Facebook account has grown stronger each and every day, so for me, the time came and I went away.

Truth and Democracy

The rise of Fascism in Spain followed a classic trajectory that can serve as a blueprint for how Democracy can be destroyed.  

My grandfather's family fled Fascism in Spain and my dad's family lost everything when we left Communism in Cuba. These facts underline how liars can dismantle our fragile Democracy.

My family emigrated to the USA when I was a little boy. The youngest son of professional parents who lost everything and fled for safety in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

Deconstructing Semantics

Submitted by ub on Wed, 04/21/2021 - 08:10

Whenever semantics comes up, an initial response could be what do you mean by that, or are you trying to be mean? News or Views?

Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, significant is the study of meaning, reference, or truth. The term can be used to refer to philosophy, linguistics, and computer science.

Semantics can mean quite different things in different contexts; fields concerned with semantics are as diverse as psychology, law, lexicography, and logic. Pragmatics is an equally wide-ranging term, with applications in politics.

Finally, we have a social media platform for good deeds. The reputations of online communities will no longer linger in the dumpster.

ChekMarc seeks to change that by encouraging people to help each other regardless of who they are and wherever they live.

A social platform that connects people one on one in a positive and private way to help each other accomplish similar goals.

desperado is someone tantamount to a loner, and the way these titular characters are being presented as those who are afraid. 

Kelly Loeffler has reached out, David Perdue has, Nikki Haley, Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump Jr, and POTUS among many others.

As I approach yet another birthday and prepare to sing a sad song of a year of unnecessary hardships and COVID fear, my conclusion is that not everyone admits being attracted to sugar, spice, and everything nice. Some folks prefer wine, and sarcasm, in order to survive so it is suffice.
