I do actually wonder in what context the symbol was used in this instant... because over the last couple of months it's not the first time I read about people comparing Israel's actions to what happened 80 years ago (because genocide and all that).

Also

... reads to me as if that group doesn't know the actual history behind the symbol itself. Obviously, in the Western world, we all know what that symbol is connected to in the first place, but overall you have to say that yes, the context still makes or breaks it.

If you're using a swastika to protest Israel today then I will just assume you care more about your own attention and being edgy than you actually do about Palestinians

on what grounds is ISrael bombing Syria (serious q)
Syria is giving aid to Iran, who is giving aid to Palestine. The friend of my enemy is also my enemy.

Abortion will officially be on the ballot in Florida this fall, after the state's Supreme Court on Monday issued one ruling approving a ballot measure that could expand access to the procedure, but another that paves the way for a strict six-week ban.

The ballot measure – which advocates say they are confident will pass in the Sunshine State – would guarantee abortion access through viability, often 24 weeks of pregnancy. With this, Floridians have the chance to essentially vote on whether to reinstate what was once the federal standard set by Roe v. Wade, before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the landmark case in 2022.

Google Agrees to Destroy Browser Data Collected in Incognito Mode

Google agreed to destroy or de-identify billions of records of web browsing data collected when users were in its private browsing “Incognito mode,” according to a proposed class action settlement filed Monday.

The proposed settlement in Brown v. Google will also mandate greater disclosure from the company about how it collects information in Incognito mode and put limits on future data collection. If approved by a California federal judge, the settlement could apply to 136 million Google users. The 2020 lawsuit was brought by Google account holders who accused the company of illegally tracking their behavior through the private browsing feature.


The proposal is valued at $5 billion, according to Monday’s court filing, calculated by determining the value of data Google has stored and would be forced to destroy and the data it would be prevented from collecting. Google would need to address data collected in private browsing mode in December 2023 and earlier. Any data that is not outright deleted must be de-identified.

“This Settlement ensures real accountability and transparency from the world’s largest data collector and marks an important step toward improving and upholding our right to privacy on the Internet,” the plaintiffs wrote in the proposed settlement filing.

Horrifying

Guishan Island suffered damage, with a large portion of the island collapsing into the ocean.
It's an uninhabited Island, but still... it's just scary to think how easily this planet could eradicate a lot in the blink of an eye.

The federal government is required to “expeditiously” house migrant children who cross into the United States unlawfully, rather than allow them to remain in unsafe open-air sites along the border, a Federal District Court judge ruled Wednesday night.

The decision, handed down by Judge Dolly M. Gee of the United States District Court of Central California, sided mostly with the lawyers representing the children in a class-action lawsuit. It established that minors at the sites were in legal custody of the Department of Homeland Security and thus were entitled to certain rights and protections, such as a safe and sanitary environment, even if they had not yet been formally processed.
