HONG KONG — A Hong Kong activist dubbed "Captain America 2.0" for wielding the superhero's shield during protests was found guilty of incitement to secession on Monday, the second person convicted under a national security law imposed by China in a crackdown on dissent. Critics say authorities have used the security law as a tool of repression, and that the right to free speech, enshrined in the city's mini-constitution, the Basic Law, has been severely undermined. Hong Kong's first national security conviction involved a man, Tong Ying-kit, who rode a motorcycle into a group of police officers. "The environment of repression and perpetual uncertainty created by the national security law makes it impossible to know what activities might lead to criminal sanctions," she added. A Hong Kong Security Bureau spokesman said in response to a Reuters request for comment that "every person or organization must abide by the laws of Hong Kong," and that the security legislation "upholds human rights."

Facebook shares were slightly negative in premarket trading Monday morning after the news outlets published their stories based on the leaked documents. Language barriersSome of the reports showed how Facebook's content moderation systems can fall flat when faced with languages besides English. Hate speech concerns in the region were amplified by similar language barrier issues as in the Middle East. According to the AP, Facebook added hate speech classifiers in Hindi and Bengali in 2018 and 2020, respectively. A Facebook spokesperson told the Times that hate speech against marginalized groups in India and elsewhere has been growing, and its "committed to updating our policies as hate speech evolves online."

AP Photo/Susan WalshUS judges face tighter stock-trading rules under proposed legislation in Washington, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday. The proposals include requiring judges to report stock trades of more than $1,000 within 45 days. The bills follow a WSJ investigation showing judges violated laws related to stock holding while hearing court cases. A bipartisan group of lawmakers will introduce legislation aimed at tightening rules on stock trading for federal judges, according to The Wall Street Journal. The proposed legislation comes after the Federal Reserve said last week it will ban policymakers from buying individual stocks, making that move following controversial equity holdings by two regional presidents who have already stepped down.

A new ad for Virginia's Republican governor nominee features Fairfax parent Laura Murphy. She fought to get Toni Morrison's "Beloved" removed from her son's AP English curriculum in 2013. Murphy, who said the book gave her son nightmares, argued for parents to have more say over their kids' school curriculum. "As a parent, it's tough to catch everything" Laura Murphy, identified as a Fairfax County mother, says in the ad. But the Fairfax County School Board declined to take up Murphy's challenge, and it remained as part of the school's curriculum.

Researchers say this is a form of affirmative action, and it's a sign of bigger problems in the education system. A 2011 study found that parents are more likely to read to girls than boys, and more likely to spank boys than girls. Katherine Frey/The Washington Post/Getty ImagesBoys tend to score higher than girls on standardized science and math tests in high school. "We're seeing this gender disparity in higher education exacerbated, where there's fewer and fewer boys in higher education as a result of the pandemic," Owens said. For these boys, Owens added, it's often easier to follow a path that's been laid out for them already.

Austria's chancellor on Friday warned of possible restrictions for people not vaccinated against COVID-19. Restrictions for unvaccinated people would begin if ICU capacity reaches 25%, he said, according to the Associated Press. If more than 600 people require treatment in the ICU, health authorities will require the unvaccinated to remain in their homes. There are about 220 COVID-19 patients in Austrian ICUs, about half the number required to trigger the restrictions, the AP reported. According to the World Health Organization, there have been 784,429 cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began last year.

These weapon systems, if deployed, could directly threaten South Korea, Japan and even the United States. Yonhap via REUTERSStill, South Korea remains hopeful, even as North Korea threatens further missile tests and nuclear weapons development. The Biden administration should continue with its overtures and consistent messages about meeting without preconditions and harboring no hostile intentions toward North Korea. The exorbitant earnings from such activities have become a lucrative source of financing for North Korea's nuclear weapons program. At the same time, Washington should prepare a strategy for when the pandemic subsides or when North Korea appears ready to engage once more.

Former Trump White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci surprised many in endorsing Biden last year. AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, FileAnthony Scaramucci said he hopes Donald Trump's stock does well so he stays out of politics. Anthony Scaramucci said he hopes Trump's SPAC stock continues to rack up gains because a successful media venture might keep the former president out of politics. "The more it goes up the less likely trump is to run for president in 2024," Scaramucci said. A representative from Trump Media and Technology group did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

The EU will soon unveil a host of policies targeting tech giants like Apple, Facebook, and Google. European legislators are working on a raft of policies aimed at curbing tech giants like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. But while the content of either is yet to be officially confirmed, reports suggest both could have serious consequences for the world's biggest tech companies. Up until now, tech companies like Facebook and Amazon have pretty much been free to police their platforms at their own discretion. And our government regulator wants to handcuff us," chief exec Glenn Fogel told the FT."European companies will suffer."

It comes as tensions between China and Taiwan ratchet up, with Beijing sending scores of warplanes toward the island, and Taiwanese officials trying to consolidate international support. The defeated Nationalists fled to Taiwan, officially known as the Republic of China, and claimed they were the only legitimate Chinese government. Amid America’s hardening attitude toward China, Beijing is also making clear that it is willing to exert influence far beyond its borders. Taiwan accused China of obstructing it from buying coronavirus vaccines internationally, and China has continued to block Taiwan from participating in the World Health Assembly even during the pandemic. The backlash China is experiencing on the international stage presents real opportunities for Taiwan but also real dangers, Rigger said.

Anger over the president's stance prompted creation of the Senate committee in April, which has investigated allegations that Bolsonaro’s management of the pandemic caused many of Brazil's more than 600,000 deaths from Covid. The draft report of nearly 1,200 pages was written by Sen. Renan Calheiros, who was scheduled to present his final version Wednesday to the 11-person committee. During six months of investigation, senators obtained thousands of documents and heard testimony from over 60 people. “This committee collected evidence that abundantly demonstrated that the federal government was silent and chose to act in a non-technical and reckless manner," the draft report reads. They said that angered committee members, including critics of the government, who called genocide an exaggeration that could threaten the entire report's credibility.

Senate Republicans are poised to block a major voting rights bill for the 2nd time this year. Progressive activists are hoping it'll be a make-or-break moment for filibuster reform. Aside from eliminating the rules altogether, some have suggested lowering the threshold to be able to pass voting rights and other civil rights legislation with a simple majority. President Joe Biden delivers a speech on voting rights at the National Constitution Center, Tuesday, July 13, 2021, in Philadelphia. "For Joe Biden to come out in support of filibuster reform would be a Nixon-going-to-China moment on this issue," he said.

THE HISTORY OF DENIALISM: America's struggle with fake news and disinformation campaigns is a lot older than you think. His conclusion — that smog was born of emissions, mostly from refineries and cars, released into bright LA sunlight — answered a long-simmering question. Their effort was poorly executed, and included firing a scientist who confirmed Haagen-Smit's theories instead of shooting them down. The tobacco industry soon returned to this playbook: But Big Tobacco approached research about cigarette smoke and cancer in a fundamentally different way.
