President Trump announcing his executive order on social media in the oval office on Thursday | Photo by Doug Mills-Pool/Getty Images. Legal experts say the executive order is largely toothless — but it could set a symbolic precedent about government censorship of the internet. Despite President Donald Trump’s threats that Republicans might shut down social media companies in retaliation for fact-checking his tweets, the executive order he signed on Thursday unsurprisingly doesn’t come anywhere close.

President Trump has signed an executive order that could threaten social media companies like Facebook and Twitter. | Brendan Smialowski / AFP via Getty Images. The pillar of internet free speech is Trump’s latest target. You may have never heard of it, but is the legal backbone of the internet. The law was created almost 30 years ago to protect internet platforms from liability for many of the things third parties say or do on them. And now it’s under threat by one of its biggest beneficiaries: President Trump, who hopes to use it to fight back against the social media platforms he believes are unfairly censoring him and other conservative voices. Section 230 says that internet platforms that host third-party content — think of tweets on Tw.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson pauses for a minute’s silence to honor health staff who have died during the coronavirus outbreak on April 28, 2020. | Stefan Rousseau/Pool/AFP via Getty Images. From China to Spain, world leaders are trying to remember the thousands lost during the pandemic. It took President Donald Trump about a day before he said anything official about the United States reaching the somber milestone of 100,000 dead from the coronavirus. “To all of the families & friends of those who have passed, I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy & love for everything that these great people stood for & represent,” he on Thursday morning. It’s was a nice — though expected — gesture from the president, and adds to his order last week to.

Sierra McCormick in The Vast of Night. | Amazon Studios. It’s a small film, but it has colossal ambitions. Every week, new original films debut on Netflix, Hulu, and other digital services, often films with modest budgets and limited fanfare. is Vox’s series highlighting the most notable of these premieres, in an ongoing effort to keep interesting and easily accessible new films on your radar. The Vast of Night. The premise: It’s the 1950s, and in a small New Mexico town, a young switchboard operator hears an odd sound on her friend’s nightly radio broadcast. What they discover together is more than they’d ever bargained for. — and also, perhaps not coincidentally, an age of paranoia about surveillance and the Soviet Union. All of those facto.

It’s about much more than a border. It’s about power in Asia. India and China are currently engaged in a tense border fight that some fear could spark a military conflict — a precarious situation that President Donald Trump has haphazardly offered to mediate. For about 80 years, India and China have quarreled over a roughly 2,200-mile frontier spanning the Himalayas, occasionally going to war over their competing claims. Despite 20-plus rounds of negotiations, the world’s two most populous countries haven’t come close to agreeing o.

The Slack app, which I use to talk to my new friends. | Thomas Trutschel/Photothek via Getty Images. Why keeping in touch with casual acquaintances is important, even in a pandemic. It all kind of started as a joke. In March, as part of a larger Sisyphean attempt to stave off boredom and anxiety during the pandemic, I bounced around the idea of starting a private Slack to my friend group. Officially launched in 2013, Slack, in plain English, is a chatroom software. It was introduced to me when I came over to Vox as an alternative to email. Instead of sending an email that’s bound to be neglected in an inbox, my coworkers could send me an instant message ranging from the facetious (an article everyone is talking about) to the more serious (ed.

People gather in Tamar Park in Hong Kong on May 5. | Anthony Wallace/AFP via Getty Images. Visas could do more than sanctions to help Hong Kong and punish China. If the United States wants to help the people of Hong Kong, it needs to think beyond sanctions and consider the role it has played time and again for victims of political repression abroad — open America’s borders and offer a place of refuge, freedom, and prosperity. The State Department says it , a result of both and a larger deterioration in the US-China relationship. The of the “one country, two systems” policy has provoked and sporadic efforts at pushback by the West. The new State Department designation will potentially lead to American sanctions as that pushback escalates. San.

Zac Freeland/Vox; Getty Images. All he has to do is embrace the consensus that’s waiting for him. Two seemingly contradictory developments have unfolded on the left over the last few years. On the one hand, the broad left-of-center coalition, from climate activists to environmental justice advocates to unions to party leaders in Congress, has come into alignment around an ambitious climate policy platform, focused on sector-specific standards, large-scale public investments, and a commitment to justice for vulnerable workers and communities.

Australian children are heading back to school as the country eases Covid-19 restrictions. | David Gray/Getty Images. America can (and should) save small businesses with money, but schools are what teach kids to read. Many parents have one thing on their minds: Will schools be open in the fall? States and cities across the country are eager to get restaurants and salons reopened this month, but they’re equivocal as to whether full-time public education will be ready to resume in September. That’s a shame. The long-term prospects for the United States are more compromised by keeping children out of school for an extended period than they are by making people continue to delay getting their hair and nails done professionally. There are no zero.

If the rule House Democrats followed doesn’t allow enough spending, what use is their rule?

He offers her one chance to live: He’ll flip a coin, and if she guesses right, he’ll spare her life. “Call it,” he says. She refuses. “Call it,” he says again. “The coin don’t have no say,” she replies. “It’s just you.”Which brings me to the House Democrats.

Getty Images/iStockphoto. 11 single people on looking for love in quarantine. “I’d love to be able to wear crop tops and go out dancing and make out with strangers,” Genevieve, a 27-year-old public relations specialist, tells me. It’s her first summer as a single woman in London, after all, and the crop top-wearing and kissing is the best part. But in London, as in major cities across the globe, there will be no sweaty dance parties this summer. This, unfortunately, is only one of a great many complicating factors for people who are attempting to date during the quarantine. Standard questions like, “Are you free this week?” or, “When was your last STD test?” now feel quaint compared to the myriad cosmic obstacles to two people meeting and ho.
