Randi Zuckerberg Claims She was Sexually Harassed on an Alaska Airlines Flight

RANDI ZUCKERBERG. YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF HER BROTHER MARK.

It’s revealing that the Alaska Airlines flight attendants central to this story did not consider what they saw as offensive. Yet, here’s a nice Jewish lady who screamed bloody murder to airline executives, who responded by banning the accused gentleman from flying with Alaska Air.

Something isn’t quite kosher here.

Boston.com

SEATTLE (AP) — Alaska Airlines said Thursday it’s investigating a claim that flight attendants allowed a passenger to sexually harass a former Facebook executive on a flight.

Randi Zuckerberg, who is also Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s sister, took to social media Wednesday to detail her recent flight between Los Angeles and Mazatlan, Mexico.

In a letter to executives of the Seattle-based airline, she said she was extremely uncomfortable with a man sitting near her, explaining he constantly made sexually explicit and lewd comments to her and others in the first-class section while being served multiple alcoholic drinks.

Zuckerberg said the man talked about touching himself, asked if she fantasized about the colleague she was traveling with, and commented on the bodies of female passengers as they boarded the plane.

He also mocked “Millennial women” when talking about recent sexual harassment news reports.

Zuckerberg said she reported the man to flight attendants, who seemed to make light of the situation while replying the man was a regular flyer on the route.

She said she was upset when they told her not to take it personally and offered to move her to a seat at the back of the plane.

“Which I almost did until I realized … why should I have to move? I’m the one that is being harassed!” she wrote.

She wrote that she was furious with the airline for “knowingly and willingly providing this man with a platform to harass women.”

The airline said it contacted Zuckerberg about the “disturbing” claims and revoked the man’s travel privileges pending the outcome of the investigation.

The airline said in part: “We want our guests to feel safe. As a company, we have zero tolerance for any type of sexual misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and crew members.”

There’s an old observation that says that the Jew isn’t happy unless she’s making someone else miserable. Randi must be beaming today. She put someone else’s life in turmoil.

Smile, Randi. Nobody gives a rat’s rear end about your sour take on life. Move to Israel and make your fellow Jews miserable instead of some jovial fellow on a plane.

Facebook Wants Your Nude Photos

Keep your nekkid pictures safe, ladies. Send them to Mark Zuckerberg.

You can trust Mark. He’s a Jew and we know how morally upstanding Jews are.

Oh, and you won’t mind the CIA having your nudes for national security reasons. They wouldn’t want to send the wrong person to a FEMA camp so make sure you help them out to the point where they know every square inch of your body.

To combat ‘revenge porn’, Facebook is now asking [4] users to send in their nudes, to test a new anti-revenge porn technology.

A pilot program is currently underway in Australia, where one in five women aged 18-45 and one in four Indigenous Australians are victims. It appears, Facebook made the right choice to test out Australian users before a much wider and or global rollout occurs.

Australian Government, e-Safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant [6] said victims of “image-based abuse” would be able to censor images before posted on Facebook’s platform(s).

Grant further said, “we see many scenarios where maybe photos or videos were taken consensually at one point, but there was not any sort of consent to send the images or videos more broadly.”

According to the Daily Mail, [4] sending your nudes to Facebook will stop the so-called ‘revenge porn’ phenomenon:

The trial requires users to send naughty pictures to themselves via Facebook Messenger.

Ms Grant said: ‘It would be like sending yourself your image in email, but obviously this is a much safer, secure end-to-end way of sending the image without sending it through the ether.’

Once the image has been sent, Facebook will then ‘hash’ the image – create a digital fingerprint or link.

Ms Grant explained: ‘They’re not storing the image, they’re storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies.

‘So if somebody tried to upload that same image, which would have the same digital footprint or hash value, it will be prevented from being uploaded.’

If the technology works , the photo should never appear on Facebook.

Antigone Davis, head of global safety at Facebook, said ”the safety and well-being of the Facebook community is our top priority”. And to provide such safety, Facebook wants your nude pictures.

She also added, “as part of our continued efforts to better detect and remove content that violates our community standards, we’re using image matching technology to prevent non-consensual intimate images from being shared on Facebook. These tools, developed in partnership with global safety experts, are one example of how we’re using new technology to keep people safe and prevent harm”.

We ask one simple question: What Rights Does Facebook Have to Your Photos?

In Facebook’s terms of service: “You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook”

…but Facebook gets a “non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license” to your photos.

* * *

Conclusion- don’t take nudes and problem solved. Otherwise, some creepy techie in Silicon Valley along with artificial intelligence will be admiring what you do on a personal level. SkyNet called it wants your nude pictures.

Just remember my lovelies. Facebook could never be hacked. Your photos could never end up on a porn site. It’s all safe.

Your dad does enjoy your nude selfies, doesn’t he?

Innovative High Tech School Backed by Mark Zuckerberg is Shutting Down

MAX VENTILLA. FOUNDER OF ALTSCHOOLS.

Silicon Valley was supposed to disrupt education, but economics is getting in the way. “Personalized learning” hasn’t been able to turn a profit, even with multimillion dollar susidies from celebrity CEOs.

The promise was huge. That well-known racial gap in learning was going to be bridged through individual lesson plans and progress reports.

How foolish!

Bloomberg

Max Ventilla sold investors on a promise to build modern, technology-infused schools that would revolutionize education. The former Google executive convinced Mark Zuckerberg and prominent venture capitalists to commit $175 million to his startup, AltSchool. The company built at least nine grade schools in California and New York, some equipped with ceiling-mounted video cameras, an abundance of computers, custom apps, robots and 3D printers.

But five years after opening, the for-profit venture has yet to solve a basic business equation. Despite charging about $30,000 for tuition, AltSchool’s losses are piling up as it spends at a pace of about $40 million per year. The San Francisco company is now scaling back its ambitions for opening elementary schools around the U.S. and will instead close at least one location. In an interview, Ventilla said it’s all part of the plan. The startup is shifting its focus to selling technology to other schools, a business which has struggled to date but that he said has a more promising future.

Venture investors spent $2.35 billion on education-technology startups globally last year, according to research firm CB Insights. But companies haven’t come up with a formula students will embrace or that can be deployed efficiently and profitably. The hype around online education has largely dissipated as dropout rates skyrocketed. Coursera Inc., backed by more than $200 million, cut staff last week and shook up the executive ranks, technology website Recode reported.

AltSchool’s pitch to investors was somewhat old-school. Ventilla wanted to build physical classrooms with first-rate teachers and complement them with “personalized” learning technology, so educators can tailor lessons for each child. At Google, Ventilla was in charge of an effort linking a user’s search history, emails, Maps usage and YouTube viewing habits into a single profile. He envisioned a similar approach to elementary schools.

With ample financial backing, including a $40 million round in May, AltSchool leased space in some of the country’s most expensive neighborhoods, hired experienced educators and recruited coders to build software for tracking classwork, evaluating students, ordering supplies, requesting IT support and communicating with parents. Ventilla had plans to expand in cities around the nation and license the technology. “We’ve literally built an operating system for a 21st century school system,” he said in 2015.

Inside the company, there was a struggle between the logistical demands of opening and operating schools, and the challenges of building technology that could be sold to educators across the U.S., said a former employee, who asked not to be identified because the discussions were private. Both initiatives are expensive. The software side won, and the company began shrinking the team in charge of school operations last year by cutting employees and not filling jobs after people leave. School sites in San Francisco were also consolidated, and plans for a Chicago location were called off.

Although the company touts the magic of its technology, two parents said their children benefited more from the extensive attention of talented teachers and small class sizes. There are multiple instructors per class, and the school places a premium on interdisciplinary projects, like building a model house that can withstand different weather—a task that incorporates current events, science, engineering and budgeting.

New Yorker’s in depth look at Altschools from a year and a half ago described the program when optimism was still high. An enterprising reporter went into the classroom to observe and found that tech in the classroom is a mixed bag of benefits and drawbacks.

The silver bullet that’s going to turn every kid into a genius remains elusive.

Illegal Aliens Escalate Demands

Claims that illegals are “living in the shadows are laughable to begin with, but when they come out to hold a press conference demanding this, that, and the next thing, it’s even more laughable.

The evil hand of Mark Zuckerberg is present in this, as noted in the story.

Excerpt from Breitbart

Top Democrats and business allies invited reporters to a Capitol Hill event to watch illegal immigrants demand amnesty and smear Republicans as racist, in Spanish and broken English.

“I’m here representing all the immigrant mothers like myself, will not allow the government to tear down our sons’ and daughters’ dreams while they try to separate our families,” said Lenka Mendoza, an unskilled illegal alien who has been living in the United States for 17 years since the year President Geoge W. Bush was elected. She continued, using a translator, saying:

The president does not care about our children and our families. Trump and his government supposed priorities are nothing else but an anti-immigrant and white-supremacist agenda that don’t solve anything … need clean act now.”

Mendoza was welcomed to the podium by Todd Schulte, a Democratic political activist who is president of FWD.us, a lobbying group formed by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Venture Capitalists and software CEOs. Nine of the group’s 15 founders are investors who would gain from cheaper white-collar labor and a larger population of customers in the United States.

Schulte hosted the event to showcase Democrats’ opposition to President Trump’s new immigration principles, which balance business’ demands for more workers and customers against Americans’ worries that they and their children will be unfairly outsourced, sidelined and ignored amid mass immigration.

In his October 8 letter to Congress, Trump said:

These findings outline reforms that must be included as part of any legislation addressing the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Without these reforms, illegal immigration and chain migration, which severely and unfairly burden American workers and taxpayers, will continue without end.

Immigration reform must create more jobs, higher wages, and greater security for Americans — now and for future generations. The reforms outlined in the enclosure are necessary to ensure prosperity, opportunity, and safety for every member of our national family.

Instead of urging compromise, Schulte’s speakers upped their demands, saying they want an amnesty for young ‘dreamer’ illegals plus an amnesty for their parents, to be delivered immediately and without any compromises, such as the improved border defenses sought by a supermajority of Americans.

Haha. Every illegal baby factory has picked up on that phrase “strong woman.” Are there no normal women out there anymore? How about weak women?

“I am a weak woman who must be supported by the taxpayers so that I can stay pregnant all the time.”

That Washington-imposed economic policy of mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

Americans tell pollsters that they strongly oppose amnesties and cheap-labor immigration, even as most Americans also want to favor legal immigrants, and many sympathize with illegals.

Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a growing percentage of the nation’s annual income is shifting to investors and away from employees.

A sane country would have raided this press conference, rounded up the illegals, and arrested the citizens who organized it.

Maybe one day we’ll be at that point, but not yet.

“Jew Haters” Trending on Twitter as Facebook Exposed for Running Ads Aimed at People Who Hate Jews

Fools or trolls are actually calling Jew Mark Zuckerberg a Nazi for wanting to make a few sheckels by selling ads to people who have some distaste for our Jewish friends.

When I put this post together about 8 P.M Central time U.S. “Jew Haters” was trending on Twitter. And Mark Zuckerberg was getting hammered.

Huffington Post

Want to market Nazi memorabilia, or recruit marchers for a far-right rally? Facebook’s self-service ad-buying platform had the right audience for you.

Until this week, when we asked Facebook about it, the world’s largest social network enabled advertisers to direct their pitches to the news feeds of almost 2,300 people who expressed interest in the topics of “Jew hater,” “How to burn jews,” or, “History of ‘why jews ruin the world.’”

To test if these ad categories were real, we paid $30 to target those groups with three “promoted posts” — in which a ProPublica article or post was displayed in their news feeds. Facebook approved all three ads within 15 minutes.

After we contacted Facebook, it removed the anti-Semitic categories — which were created by an algorithm rather than by people — and said it would explore ways to fix the problem, such as limiting the number of categories available or scrutinizing them before they are displayed to buyers.

“There are times where content is surfaced on our platform that violates our standards,” said Rob Leathern, product management director at Facebook. “In this case, we’ve removed the associated targeting fields in question. We know we have more work to do, so we’re also building new guardrails in our product and review processes to prevent other issues like this from happening in the future.”

Facebook’s advertising has become a focus of national attention since it disclosed last week that it had discovered $100,000 worth of ads placed during the 2016 presidential election season by “inauthentic” accounts that appeared to be affiliated with Russia.

Like many tech companies, Facebook has long taken a hands off approach to its advertising business. Unlike traditional media companies that select the audiences they offer advertisers, Facebook generates its ad categories automatically based both on what users explicitly share with Facebook and what they implicitly convey through their online activity.

Traditionally, tech companies have contended that it’s not their role to censor the Internet or to discourage legitimate political expression. In the wake of the violent protests in Charlottesville by right-wing groups that included self-described Nazis, Facebook and other tech companies vowed to strengthen their monitoring of hate speech.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote at the time that “there is no place for hate in our community,” and pledged to keep a closer eye on hateful posts and threats of violence on Facebook. “It’s a disgrace that we still need to say that neo-Nazis and white supremacists are wrong — as if this is somehow not obvious,” he wrote.

But Facebook apparently did not intensify its scrutiny of its ad buying platform. In all likelihood, the ad categories that we spotted were automatically generated because people had listed those anti-Semitic themes on their Facebook profiles as an interest, an employer or a “field of study.” Facebook’s algorithm automatically transforms people’s declared interests into advertising categories.

Artificial intelligence hasn’t been taught political correctness yet. It’s antisemitic. But it doesn’t know it’s antisemitic.

Twitter is overreacting to this minor incident which harmed no one.

“Collusion network” Facebook flaw leads to millions of fake “likes”

It’s entirely possible that Fakebook … er … Facebook was designed to allow criminal racketeering that puts shekels in the pocket of Mark Zuckerberg.

The press wants you to believe that fake Facebook accounts and fake likes are just accidents. I doubt it. Not when likes and accounts can be used to enrich the Zuck via advertising dollars and the sale of fake data to the suckers who fall for Zucks’ scams.

Excerpt from CBS News

Researchers say a security loophole has allowed at least a million Facebook accounts, both real and fake, to generate at least 100 million “likes” and comments as part of “a thriving ecosystem of large-scale reputation manipulation.”

The researchers, from the University of Iowa and Lahore University of Management Science in Pakistan, found dozens of sites that operate so-called collusion networks, which rapidly generate users’ likes for free.

Facebook posts that rapidly receive a lot of likes are more likely to be placed higher in other people’s feeds, meaning users buoyed by fake likes can ultimately generate significantly more real attention and influence.

In order to participate, users have to grant the networks wide-ranging access to their accounts, so that those accounts can be harnessed to like others.

The networks exploit code known as OAuth, which allows third-party applications such as Spotify, iMovie and the Playstation Network to access users’ Facebook accounts from anywhere between a few hours to even months at a time.

Researchers warn the exploit can be used for darker purposes than just gathering extra likes.

“In addition to reputation manipulation, attackers can launch other serious attacks using leaked access tokens. For example, attackers can steal personal information of collusion network members as well as exploit their social graph to propagate malware,” they write in their forthcoming paper.

In an interview with CBS News, the researchers said they tracked the collusion networks in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, but couldn’t say whether the networks were used to boost posts to benefit or hurt candidates. They said their research was just scratching the surface.

“We do want to examine the Russia question,” said co-author Zubair Shafiq, who added that while they only looked at the top 50 networks, many more exist. “These collusion networks are quite possibly involved in orders of magnitude much larger than what we observed.”

Facebook acknowledged Wednesday that hundreds of phony accounts that appear to have originated in Russia bought $100,000 in advertisements during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign and in the months following the election. It is not clear if the ads, or other false stories shared during the election, were boosted through influence networks.

The researchers revealed their findings to Facebook in May 2016, ultimately working with Facebook to implement countermeasures to combat the networks.

Facebook said in a statement to CBS News that the collusion networks have now been blocked.

Mashable: Why Mark Zuckerberg is the Kind of Dad America Needs Now

This is an older piece, written in January, 2016. It’s a real propaganda piece of the kind we can expect to see more of as Zuck runs for president or otherwise tries to steer the electoral process in the coming years.

Excerpt from Mashable

Mark Zuckerberg, to most people, is a hoodie-wearing Harvard dropout who created the most successful social networking platform in the world.

But here’s another way to imagine the Facebook CEO: as a devoted father who has redefined what it means to be a working parent in a culture that values, above all else, the bottom line.

Zuckerberg, 31, returned to work Monday after two months of parental leave. When he announced his leave shortly before the birth of his daughter Max in November, he became the first and only male CEO of his stature in Silicon Valley to make that choice.

Once Max arrived he began sharing with his 48 million followers simple yet emotional photos and dispatches from the front lines of parenthood. He gazed at his daughter’s newborn face and wrote, “Full of joy with little Max.” When he posted an image of himself smiling while changing her diaper he added, “One more down, thousands to go.”

Never before has the public been given such intimate glimpses into the early moments of fatherhood as lived by a powerful businessman, who might have once been convinced by tradition to take a supporting role in his family’s life.

Zuckerberg hasn’t acknowledged the influence of his leadership as a CEO and father, but it has the potential to shift our collective notions about work and family in profound ways. (He wasn’t available to comment for this story.)

“Zuckerberg could do what he wants, but he’s choosing to send a message,” says Scott Behson, professor of management at Fairleigh Dickinson University and author of The Working Dad’s Survival Guide: How to Succeed at Work and at Home.

That message, adds Behson, might best reach men wary of embracing fatherhood openly and executives intimidated by the challenge of modeling what it means to be an involved parent and highly effective business person.

After all, there is no more convincing of an example than the one set by the CEO.

In his recent Facebook posts, Zuckerberg has been vulnerable with and devoted to Max, but also clearly in tune with the needs of his company and users, commenting on events like a WhatsApp outage in Brazil and the activation of the “safety check” feature following an earthquake in India.

There’s no doubt that Zuckerberg’s immense wealth — and Facebook’s steady growth and stability — give him a special privilege to find that balance.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, for example, gave birth to twins in December and planned a brief leave. That may have been her personal preference, but the longstanding debate over whether or not Yahoo will survive as a business likely left Mayer with few options.

Doyin Richards, a prominent “daddy” blogger and staff writer for Upworthy, says obsessing over Zuckerberg’s privilege misses the point.

“He’s a man who is embracing fatherhood and showing it to his millions of followers,” Richards says. “He’s able to do a lot of good to say, ‘Even a billionaire CEO can change diapers, and everyday dads can still get down and dirty and handle a blowout.’ That’s a beautiful thing we should all embrace.”

Blah, blah, blah. I’m guessing there’s a certain type of liberal woman who falls for this sort of drivel.

What are we men supposed to do next? Climb up on a rooftop and scream to the world, “I am Mark Zuckerberg!”

We all know that Facebook and (((Zuck))) are part of the Deep State. He’s no role model.
