Comedian Jim Carrey urges people to delete their Facebook accounts and dump the stock

Jim Carrey tweeted on Tuesday he was selling his Facebook stock and deleting his page because the company profited from Russian interference during the 2016 U.S. election.

"What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed," Carrey said to CNBC in a statement.

Jim Carrey is quitting Facebook and dumping his stock — and is urging everyone else to do so as well.

May he RIP.

John Perry Barlow, Internet Pioneer, 1947-2018

With a broken heart I have to announce that EFF's founder, visionary, and our ongoing inspiration, John Perry Barlow, passed away quietly in his sleep this morning. We will miss Barlow and his wisdom for decades to come, and he will always be an integral part of EFF.

Senior White House official to resign after ex-wives’ allegations of abuse

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... 68fd88f0bb

Quote:
A senior White House official said Wednesday that he would resign after his two ex-wives accused him of physical and emotional abuse, with one presenting pictures of her blackened eye.

The official, Rob Porter, served as the staff secretary, a title that belies the role’s importance in any White House — but especially in President Trump’s. Porter functioned as Chief of Staff John F. Kelly’s top enforcer in their shared mission to instill discipline and order in what had become an extraordinarily chaotic West Wing. He was the gatekeeper to the Oval Office, determining which articles and policy proposals reached the president’s hands and screening the briefing materials that his visitors shared with him.

Aides had been aware generally of accusations against Porter since late last year, White House advisers said, but learned of the specifics late Tuesday when approached by a reporter from the Daily Mail, a British tabloid, which first detailed many of the allegations. Porter’s ex-wives said they informed the FBI in January 2017 of their allegations against him while they were being interviewed by agents as part of Porter’s security clearance review.

Lottery winner dies weeks after cashing in $1 million scratch-off ticket

Quote:
A New York man who struck it big with a scratch-off lottery ticket died just weeks after he claimed the prize.

It was a lucky start to 2018 for 51-year-old Donald Savastano, a Queens native who was living upstate in Sidney. He played the New York Lottery's "Merry Millionaire" game and won $1 million.

"This is going change our lives, to tell you the truth," Savastano said when he picked up his winnings.

The self-employed carpenter shared some plans he had in mind for how he was going to spend the money, saying most of it was going to fund his retirement.

"I'm probably going to go get a new truck and I don't know probably go on vacation," Savastano said.

The plans also included a trip to the doctor, because he couldn't afford to go previously.
"He was self-employed," said Danielle Scott, who works at the store where he bought the winning ticket. "He didn't have insurance, he hadn't been feeling good for a while, I guess, and when he got the money he went into the doctor."

The news wasn't good. He learned he had stage four cancer.

"He had a friend come and talk to me, and they told me that he was very sick and that he had brain and lung cancer and that he was in the hospital and they didn't think he was gonna make it," Scott said.

Savastano died Friday, 23 days after he won the lottery.
"I was hoping that the money was maybe going to save his life," Scott said........

In view of the latest Polish legislation was he insulting or complimenting his rival?

Gov. Rick Snyder: State to end problem-plagued privatization experiment with prison food

Quote:
Gov. Rick Snyder announced Wednesday that the state will end a four-year experiment with privatizing its prison food service after years of maggots in food, smuggling by kitchen employees, kitchen workers having sex with inmates, inadequate staffing levels and other problems documented by the Free Press in a series of articles.

That was the only bombshell in a 2018-19 budget plan in which Snyder aimed to contain spending amid ongoing efforts by lawmakers to further cut taxes while making modest additional investments in education, roads and infrastructure, and public safety.

Snyder's spending plan requires approval from the Legislature, where budget hearings begin next week.

Snyder announced the reversal of the state's prison privatization effort in presenting his $56.8-billion 2019 budget to joint appropriations committees of the Legislature.

Snyder, who spoke as union protesters from the Service Employees International Union gathered in the Capitol rotunda and tried to drown him out with chants of "Tricky Ricky," asked for $13.7 million to move back to state workers running the prison kitchens. Snyder called the privatization effort an area where "we haven't been successful."...............

The family always wants to scapegoat everyone else but themselves instead of starting with their own more immediate environment that might have contributed to a suicide.

That said, I don't think suicide and other death stories are appropriate for "bye".

Michigan State to fire former medical dean over Larry Nassar scandal

LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State University said Friday it plans to fire the former dean of its osteopathic medicine college and has suspended its radiology chairman in the wake of former sports doctor Larry Nassar's sentencing for molesting young female athletes. MSU Interim President John Engler said the first step has been taken to revoke the tenure of Dr. William Strampel, who until December led the College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Ditching Andrew Jackson for Mary Jackson - The Atlantic

Quote:
An elementary school in Utah has traded one Jackson for another in a change that many say was a long time coming.

Jackson Elementary School in Salt Lake City will no longer be named for Andrew Jackson, the seventh U.S. president, whose slave ownership and treatment of Native Americans are often cited in the debate over memorializing historical figures associated with racism.

Instead, the school will honor Mary Jackson, the first black female engineer at nasa whose story, and the stories of others like her at the space agency, was chronicled in Hidden Figures, a 2016 film based on a book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly.

A unanimous vote by the the Salt Lake City school board this week was met with a standing ovation from the crowd in the room, reports The Salt Lake Tribune’s Erin Alberty. School employees and parents have discussed changing the elementary’s school name “for years,” Alberty reported, and last year started polling and meeting with parents, alumni, and others. More than 70 percent supported the change. Of the school’s 440 students, 85 percent are students of color, according to the Salt Lake City School District.

Mary Jackson, a native of Hampton, Virginia, worked as a math teacher, a receptionist, and an Army secretary before she arrived at nasa’s Langley Research Center in 1951 as a member of the West Area Computing unit, a segregated division where African American women spent hours doing calculations with pencil and paper, including for the trajectories of the country’s earliest space missions.

Uh-oh, a USA Today headline says, "Trump has 'full faith' in chief of staff John Kelly in wake of Rob Porter firing, Conway says."
