md 1737 concerning severe potential...watch unlikely for portions of northeast in into northwest oh

0310 pm cdt wed aug 14 2019

areas affected...portions of northeast in into northwest oh

concerning...severe potential...watch unlikely

valid 142010z - 142145z

probability of watch issuance...5 percent

summary...a couple of strong storms could produce marginal hail and
gusty winds through the remainder of the afternoon.

discussion...isolated thunderstorms have increased in intensity this
afternoon from marshall to allen counties in in and van wert county
in oh. the most intense cell currently is near fort wayne, where a
cell has interacted with an outflow boundary from a previous
decaying cell. this cell has shown some weak rotation, which has
probably been enhanced by the interaction with the aforementioned
boundary. some strong gusts and marginal hail are possible with
strongest cells this afternoon given around 30 kt effective shear
and a weak mid/upper level impulse migrating through westerly deep
layer flow. midlevel lapse rates will remain poor and limit severe
hail potential. steep low level lapse rates and a deeply-mixed
sub-cloud layer will favor some stronger downdrafts and gusty winds.
overall, the threat should remain limited in intensity and coverage
and a watch is not expected.

Tumblr the Day After (ma.tt)

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20696256

HN comment excerpt:

Automattic is a company with a commitment to the open web and to effortless digital publishing. That was Tumblr's original vision, too, before it got lost in in the Yahoo/Oath/Verizon behemoth.

As Matt mentioned, Verizon does $130B in annual revenue. Tumblr was probably a strange distraction for them and had no chance of moving their KPIs as a business.

Automattic's acquisition of it was probably the best possible outcome, for Tumblr's technical & management team, for Tumblr's community, and, most importantly, for its future potential impact on site operators and independent web publishers everywhere.

Google "Machine Learning Fairness" Whistleblower Goes Public, says: "burden lifted off of my soul"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1VeElBAeas

A Google insider who anonymously leaked internal documents to Project Veritas made the decision to go public in an on-the-record video interview. The insider, Zachary Vorhies, decided to go public after receiving a letter from Google, and after he says Google allegedly called the police to perform a "wellness check" on him.

allegedly. in my opinion, project veritas has a suspicious history.

White House drafting executive order to tackle Silicon Valley’s alleged anti-conservative bias

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/08/07/white-house-tech-censorship-1639051

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/08/11/leaked-draft-trump-executive-order-censor-internet-denounced-dangerous

Concerns about harmful content online following last weekend's mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, could become part of the discussion around the draft order on tech bias. The suspected gunman has been linked to a racist manifesto that, shortly before the shooting, appeared on 8chan, a fringe website known as a hotbed of white supremacy. Online screeds tied to two other gunmen in mass shootings in California and New Zealand have also appeared on 8chan.

The New Zealand shooter livestreamed his murderous rampage on Facebook, but Facebook still exists.

More than one terrorist has spewed hatred on Twitter, yet Twitter still exists. Journalists love to use the same silo that hosts hate, violence, and misinformation. Journalists enable this behavior on Twitter because they use Twitter. For Twitter management, it's all about the engagement factor, regardless of Twitter's harm to society. That engagement creates revenue for Twitter , which pleases Wall Street. If the journalists stopped using Twitter, then that would get the attention of Wall Street, which would demand that Twitter management make serious changes.
