Great Birthday Gifts

I got wonderful gifts for my birthday, including a modern air purifier from my dear daughters.

The surprises included texts that I read as well as cards, emails and voice mails I heard. However since I no loger visit that platform which has recently lost face, I apologize to all those freinds who may have sent greetings, but did not take the time required to read my parting messages of Adios Amigos, ands Hasta La Vista!

The troubled platform has reportedly announced plans to rebrand and therefore change its name. What should it now be known as?

What about … A slap in the face? Kick in the face? How many different variations can we think of? Or what about taking that smirk off your face? Are they trying to make everyone FaceAholics?

According to Frontline on Public Broadcasting Service, the promise of Facebook was to create a more open and connected world. 

But from the company’s failure to protect millions of users’ data, to the proliferation of “fake news” and disinformation,  mounting crises have raised the question: Is Facebook more harmful than helpful?

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.

FCC Investigations

Everyone living in America should know they can formally request the @FCC to investigate any local TV station for the content of their broadcasts. I know because I have held an #FCC license since my first job in broadcasting.

The FCC maintains jurisdiction over the areas of broadband access, fair competition, radio frequency use, media responsibility, public safety, and homeland security. The FCC was formed by the Communications Act of 1934 to replace the radio regulation functions of the Federal Radio Commission.

There is a new Sheriff in town and his name is POTUS. This one is much different than the last one who bowed to Putin. President Joe Biden has announced from The Whitehouse that he has leveled an array of sanctions against the Russian government for placing bounties on USA troops, its attempted interference in the 2020 American presidential election, occupation of the Crimea, and other malign activities by the Communists.
