As per that link...

ALL police represent the interest of capitalism and impel state-sanctioned violence. Anyone who works within a system that perpetuates state-sanctioned violence is complicit in upholding white supremacy. Assimilation into a system that is anti-Black is one of the most dangerous weapons stemming from white supremacy.

Below link for anyone interested in what BLN really is all about.

I have no problem with violent protests if necessary in the face of abuse of power..

The actual scooters are like a skateboard with a handle.

Yes, these ones only, and these do cause lot's of accidents.

What's next, renting out the corporate headquarters as Airbnbs?

In all probability the HQ will be sold, and shifted to a cheap rented building in Houston.

The United States is looking to Canada to help cope with the growing number of migrants at the United States' border with Mexico

The agreement would help thousands immigrate through legal channels

Corrected

The United States is looking to Canada to help cope with the growing number of illegal migrants at the United States' border with Mexico.The agreement would help tens of thousands of illegal migrants to be legalized and forced moved as legal migrants to Canada, In other words all the existing and new illegals would be all legalized migrants.

The present composition of Scotus unaccountable to nobody and free to legislate from the highest bench in the land is a blot on American democracy and who else but America's political class is responsible for this?

And which composition of Scotus was accountable to anyone, they are literally above the law and free to legislate, and they never retire.. and yes a two party system is not that democratic.

Young Thug types are the role model of many so many youngsters, and this is the cultural issue that the leaders of the community do not want to talk about.

Posted in: Tesla says it sold a record 1.3 million vehicles last year See in context

Tesla fell far below their sales targets for 2022. The combination of a backlash against Tesla and all the new EV coming into the market is bad news for Tesla.

They may survive, but will just play a small role in the car market. Most EV buyers lean liberal and prefer a car without all the toxic political right wing conspiracy garbage

Standard RL styled dis-info narrative, not a single fact.

Posted in: Japan ranks 41st in attracting, retaining talent in 2022: Swiss survey See in context

Who is paying these rents? Most Singaporeans live at home with parents or in HDB's. Vast majority of rentals were foreigners when I used to live there. Maybe this changed but I doubt it.

Yep, foreigners only, as a result no longer appealing to highly skilled foreigners... and w/o them Singapore is just a developed city/state.

Posted in: Japan ranks 41st in attracting, retaining talent in 2022: Swiss survey See in context

The city-state placed third for the percentage of graduates in the sciences and fifth for business environment appeal to highly skilled foreign personnel..

This is highly inaccurate and all in the realm of MM, the actual science graduate numbers should be reported and not the percentage, and thanks to covid, which was subtly leveraged to reduce the foreign population, and the post covid high cost of living (rentals up by 70-80%), no longer appealing to highly skilled foreign personnel.

Posted in: Rocky ride: Tesla stock on pace for worst year ever See in context

But at their current stock price their market capitalization is greater than the combined market capitalization of the five largest automotive companies. Tesla's stock price is not supported by the underlying fundamentals.

Now that's a very valid point, but market capitalization has nothing to do with Global market share...

Posted in: Rocky ride: Tesla stock on pace for worst year ever See in context

While Tesla has continued to grow its profits, signs of softening demand and heightened competition have investors increasingly worried. And then there’s CEO Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. Some of Musk’s actions since taking over the social media company, including doing away with a content moderation structure created to address hate speech and other problems on the platform, have unnerved Twitter’s advertisers and turned off some users.

Now this is the standard Musk hating mostly left aligned narrative, standard template/playbook.

Posted in: Musk says Twitter in precarious position; defends cost cuts See in context

The fact is, the business was running, and not in peril of bankruptcy..

No it was not, and that's why it was sold, you don't sell a successful business at this scale, but buy/merge other firms in that business and grow and grow...eg:- all the major Tech firms are conglomerate of many so many acquisitions.

Posted in: Musk says Twitter in precarious position; defends cost cuts See in context

when it started pointing at the ground, he started to freak out...

It was already pointed to the ground for many years... and that's why it was sold..to who ever was willing to buy..

Musk's takeover of Twitter will be used in business classes..

Right, and to show case the due diligence that needs to be done, before you buy a company..and not to base decisions on media narratives..as the truth is now coming out, twitter was all but a failed company, now one wonder's what's the real health of say facebook.

Posted in: Musk says Twitter in precarious position; defends cost cuts See in context

Since things began going quickly down after he began buying it then it is clear the problem was not so much the company but the new management

Ohh no, things were way down when he took over, why do you think twitter was sold to Musk in the first place, Dorsey's management is fully responsible, Musk just made these problems known to everyone..

Posted in: French federation to go after abusers of World Cup players See in context

As long as people are anonymous, they’ll continue being bullies. Once their real identity is shown, they’ll stop.

The success of Social Media is all but based on anonymous/bots/fake accounts, If these were all to be removed, than there user base will definitely go below 50%, followed with major fall in profits, even Musk is unable to get rid of anonymous/bots/fake accounts. Only way out for soccer federations, FIFA is to move out of social media...

Most conspiracy theories are bunk but there is often a grain of veracity in them..

Yep, some of these facts are deliberately packaged as conspiracy theories, as such nobody believes in them.. and subtly much later these become mainstream.

Posted in: Musk says he will step down as Twitter CEO once successor found See in context

I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job!" Musk tweeted, saying he will then only run software and server teams at Twitter.

Excellent.. so basically saying that this was a failed firm and no one should take this job, and yes, separating the fake tech from the tech, and managing/taking away the tech..

Posted in: Twitter users vote to oust Elon Musk as CEO See in context

This poster clearly missed that Musk himself was the one who asked "there [sic] opinion".

You know that musk started the poll and vowed to abide by its decision, right? Right

Both these posters cannot see the big picture, now why did he ask for it, does the CEO of any company asks the end consumers, should I stay or should I leave... Musk is literally challenging the capitalist system.. the ramifications are mind boggling...

Posted in: Twitter users vote to oust Elon Musk as CEO See in context

The people have spoken. Will he honor his word?

Twitter is a private company, and there opinion does not count, Musk is though trying to change that...If he succeeds than this will have ramifications all across, as any CEO could be now ousted, not by shareholders/board but by end users..WoW...

Posted in: Twitter users vote to oust Elon Musk as CEO See in context

advertisers have run for the hills and left Twitter squarely in the red ink potentially on track to lose roughly $4 billion per year we estimate..

These are all but advertisement platforms masquerading as social media, there is not much Tech in these firms, Musk know these, and is just playing around before he goes back to the world of real Tech.

Posted in: Twitter bans linking to Facebook, Instagram, other rivals See in context

Yeah, but they didn't buy the company while specifically promising everyone it would be a free speech panacea, then within weeks of taking it over start arbitrarily banning and micro-managing content to an extent the previous regime hadn't even dreamed of. You can't even share

This amuses me.

Well THEY banned and micro-managed when it suited them, especially the last election, with the job done THEY sold it and made billions..and yes, it is amusing, simply cannot see, what THEY did..

and a hat trick by his heir apparent, France forward Kylian Mbappé.

Well Mbappé is not in the league of Messi, and definitely no heir apparent, he is more in the lines of C Ronaldo where the rest of the team is assisting him to score the goals.

Even that is based on Next, works on custom h/w only, and still no more secure than any other OS.
