    This Is Your Brain On Instagram

    This Is Your Brain On Instagram

    Voters in California appeared to send the message to Governor Gavin Newsom that his coronavirus policies were the right way to go after saving him from a recall. The vote also sends a pretty strong political message to Democrats around the country about the pressures they might face for their own pandemic measures. Additionally, President Biden met with top executives of companies that supported his administration’s vaccination mandate plan.
    For the past three years, Facebook has been conducting studies into how Instagram affects its millions of young users. According to the Wall Street Journal, those studies say the app is harmful for a sizable chunk of them, especially teen girls.
    And in headlines: Olympic gymnasts testified before the Senate, the Justice Department filed an emergency motion to stop the enforcement of Texas's new controversial abortion law, and cultural icon RuPaul now has a shiny little bug named after him.

    And in headlines: one million Afghan children are at risk of starvation and death, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken testified before Congress about the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the first trial associated with the Varsity Blues scandal kicked off.

    And in headlines: Iran reached an agreement with the UN’s nuclear watchdog, people who are not fully vaccinated are eleven times more likely to die of COVID-19 than those who are fully vaccinated, and Democratic lawmakers still can’t agree on a price tag for their spending plan.

    Anti-Muslim Bias After 9/11 with Shahana Hanif

    Anti-Muslim Bias After 9/11 with Shahana Hanif

    Tomorrow marks 20 years since 9/11. The terrorist attack caused a ripple effect that has influenced many parts of American history and culture, but it also fueled a rise in Islamophobia. We hear from Shahana Hanif how two decades of anti-Muslim bias has hurt and transformed the lives of American Muslims. When the attack happened, Hanif was a 10-year-old growing up in Brooklyn. Today, she lives in Brooklyn and is running for New York City Council, where she is likely to become the first Muslim woman ever to serve.
    And in headlines: the Justice Department sues Texas over its anti-abortion law, Biden mandates vaccines for all federal government employees and contractors, and Facebook and Ray-Ban team up to make high-tech glasses.

    Bring It On Holmes

    Bring It On Holmes

    Yesterday marked the beginning of the federal criminal trial of Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of the blood-testing startup Theranos. She and her former boyfriend Sunny Balwani were charged with about a dozen counts that include wire fraud for lying to investors as well as patients about what Theranos technology could actually do. 
    The weekly pediatric coronavirus cases in the U.S. surpassed 250,000 this week for the first time since the pandemic began. The uptick in young people testing positive comes during Back to School week for many, and that is NOT a good sign.
    And in headlines: the Biden administration announced its plan to expand the use of solar energy, LAPD officers have been instructed to record the social media information of any civilian they stop, and Starbucks is reportedly trying to stop a unionization effort.

Loganfool ,

Want to like

I really want to like this podcast but Gideon speaks way too fast and his words just get jumbled and I miss entire sentences. Nothing wrong with my hearing I assure you. It’s irritating and it’s always at the best time. I think he gets excited and then just starts talking faster.Does anybody understand Gideon? What was his last line in regards to Twitch?

Skyyyyyyyllllll ,
