Facebook to target vaccine misinformation with focus on

  Facebook, the world’s largest social media site, will soon take aim against anti-vaxe

rs. The company will start by lowering the ranking of groups and pages that spread misinformation about vacc

inations in its News Feed and Search options, a representative said Wednesday.

  ”These Groups and Pages will not be included in recommendations or in predictions when you type into Search,” Monika Bickert, Facebook’s vice pres

ident of global policy management, said in a statement. She added that when ads that include misinformation about va

ccinations are found, “we will reject them.” Ad accounts that continue to violate company policies may even be disabled.

  Facebook won’t be disabling personal accounts that post misinformation about vaccines, a spokeswoman told CNN on backgrou

nd. General misinformation doesn’t violate the company’s community standards. If something blatantly violates th

e standards, it will be removed, but that will not happen to individual posts containing misinformation.

  Bickert said the company is also “exploring ways to share educational informa

tion about vaccines,” possibly by adding educational information to inaccurate posts.

After reading it, Liu Bei said, “This matter can be easily arranged.”

Getting shocked was a badge of honor for Woz.

He prided himself on being a hardware engineer, which meant that random shocks were routine. He once devised a roulette game where four people put their thumbs in a slot; when the ball landed, one would get shocked. “Hardware guys will play this game, but software guys are too chicken,” he noted.

 

During his senior year he got a part-time job at Sylvania and had the

Xun Yu said, “O Leader, you are brave, but we must consider the present circumstance. We cannot start a sudden war just as the capital has been changed. However, there is a certain ruse known as ‘Rival Tigers and One Prey.’ Liu Bei has no decree authorizing him to govern the region. You, Sir Prime Minister, can procure one for him, and when sending it, and so conferring upon him right in addition to his might, you can enclose a private note telling him to get rid of Lu Bu. If he does, then he will have lost a vigorous warrior from his side, and he could be dealt with as occasions serve. Should he fail, then Lu Bu will slay him. This is ‘Rival Tigers and One Prey’ ruse; they wrangle and bite each other.”

  “there need be no compunction about putting him to death,” said Zhang Fei. “Lu Bu is a bad man.”
  “But he came to me for protection in his weakness: How can I put him to death? That would be immoral,” said Liu Bei.
  “If he was a good man, it would be difficult,” replied Zhang Fei.
  Liu Bei would not consent.
  Next day, when Lu Bu came to offer congratulations, he was received as usual. He said, “I have come to felicitate you on the receipt of the imperial bounty.”
  Liu Bei thanked him in due form. But then he saw Zhang Fei draw his sword and come up the hall as if to slay Lu Bu. Liu Bei hastily interfered and stopped Zhang Fei.
  Lu Bu was surprised and said, “Why do you wish to slay me, Zhang Fei?”
  “Cao Cao says you are immoral and tells my brother to kill you,” shouted Zhang Fei.
  Liu Bei shouted again and again to Zhang Fei to go away, and he led Lu Bu into the private apartments out of the way. Then he told Lu Bu the whole story and showed him the secret letter.

My master is the most prominent man in the world——a man who delights in wise people and appreciates soldiers as everyone knows. Your valor today won his entire admiration, and so he took care that the attack was not vigorous enough to sacrifice you. Now he has sent me to invite you to join him. Will you not leave darkness for light and help him in his magnificent task?”

On Thanksgiving weekend of his senior year, Wozniak visited the University of Colorado. It was closed for the holiday, but he found an engineering student who took him on a tour of the labs.

He begged his father to let him go there, even though the out-of-state tuition was more than the family could easily afford. They struck a deal:

He would be allowed to go for one year, but then he would transfer to De Anza Community College back home. After arriving at Colorado in the fall of 1969, he spent so much time playing pranks (such as producing reams of printouts saying “Fuck Nixon”) that he failed a couple of his courses and was put on probation.

In addition, he created a program to calculate Fibonacci numbers that burned up so much computer time the university threatened to bill him for
the cost. So he readily
lived up to his bargain
with his parents and
transferred to De Anza.
