I spoke to an 8th grade class about where the metals in their phones come from yesterday, and how in some cases the miners of metals like cobalt are younger than they are. It was tough but powerful to see smart, engaged kids wrestle with the ugly truths about modern supply chains

Hurray! @Europarl_EN just adopted the #EUFarm2Fork report as tabled by the Agri-Envi Committee (with just 1 new recital) 🥳 But shocked to see that @HerbertDorfmann and many @EPPGroup bent to industrial ag lobbies and voted AGAINST parts of their own compromises. Shame on you.😡
📢Les résultats des votes sur les amendements de la #EUFarmToFork sont tombé📢 @EUparliament envoie un signal fort et rejette les tentatives de vider le texte, 1 cap clair pour l'avenir de l'agriculture🇪🇺 est fixé ! @GreensEFA et moi même voteront évidemment pr le texte final !

Privacy isn't about hiding bad things. It's about protecting what makes us humans: our day-to-day behavior, our personality, our fears, our relationships, and our vulnerabilities. Everyone deserves privacy online.

“The only solution to the human crisis of displacement is to divest from policing, and the borders they protect, and invest in people instead.” @hebagowayed’s great piece in @AJEnglish is a must read: aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/…

Johnson & Johnson filed in court last week to split its Baby Powder from the rest of the company. Why? J&J knew asbestos laced some bottles but kept it a secret for decades. Tens of thousands of women with ovarian cancer are suing, and the company wants to shield its assets.

Land stealing is one of colonialism’s main features. In contexts where colonialism has left most of its logics intact, land theft continues to be a common practice by state and private developers, as Fatima Anwar (@khayalibiryani) writes about Lahore and Pakistan in general. 1/3

Do you remember the famous 97% study - that 97% of climate science supported the consensus on human-caused climate change? Well we have just published an update for 2012-2021 papers in the same journal, Environmental Research Letters. The figure is now... drumroll please...99.9%!

Apparently, the camera's used for sporting behaviour are not the only ones in Bruul park in Leuven. The city and the police are trialling 5G mobile camera's together with Telenet to prevent fly-tipping and other disorders #surveillance @ministryprivacy nieuwsblad.be/cnt/dmf2021062…

Why should cover your hand when typing a PIN, and why this may not be sufficient: 4-digit PIN can be guessed with 41% success probability after 3 attempts.
Credit card PINs can be guessed even when covering the ATM pad - @billtoulas bleepingcomputer.com/news/se…

Hot topic in European biometric surveillance today: @North_Ayrshire council 🇬🇧 rolls out facial authentication in 9 UK schools. A quick look at the privacy notice for the project shows a manifest disregard for the privacy & personal data of these children, not to mention that...

The voice of the indigenous people of the world’s second lungs must be heard at #COP. No more time for exclusion... Every voice matters. They don’t have a person who works in the DRC government and again they have been forgotten to reach the #COP. None reached university 📷crd
