  • Bots really do post on this board, particularly from China (they don't even bother to change their IP). Please report suspect posts that encourage odd behaviour. These posts tell to encourage users to not trust their government and to disengage with them.
  • All OPs of thread should include a link to the source of the news. The source should be a reputable and verifiable news outlet.
  • Avoid creating "general threads". New news posted in general threads can and will get lost/go unseen in a "general" thread. New threads keep the information fresh and the conversation moving forward instead of rehashing the information in the OP over and over.

We are now encouraging the use of Usernames and/or Tripcodes as a response to the Chinabots
-----------------------

There's no finessing this: The board is being constantly assaulted by "Chinabots"; automated posts coming from Chinese IP addresses. These posts are often completely unrelated to the thread's topic and all push for the same thing: Chaos in America. They keep pushing users to feel like America is falling apart at the seams and that you the users yourselves should contribute by rebelling or something.

Now as the Corona-virus breaks out across the world, these posts are an increasing problem as they're an even bigger hindrance in this crisis. People are mistaking fake China posts for real ones, while accusing other real posts of being Chinabots.

In the midst of this. we've noticed these Chinabot posts never seem to use usernames, and certainly not tripcodes. And therein may lay a way to combat these Chinabots.

We would like to now encourage everyone who posts on /n/ to use some kind of user name and/or a tripcode in order to identify yourselves as "real" users, as opposed to fake Chinabot users. Your name can be anything, so long as it isn't in the format of the current RNG name generator which gives everyone a "Firstname Lastname" style name. Your username doesn't have to be too specific, something like "Anonymous One", "Anonymous Two", "Friendly Neighbour Anonymous" etc if you still want to keep things vague.

This isn't a complete solution to the problem but we think it would be a big hand in helping things along. At a bare minimum, it'll help the regulars here spot the other regulars and give everyone a better spot at noticing who the Chinabots are. So if you could co-operate with this plan, we'd really appreciate it and think it'll be a big help.

JEFF BEZOS CLIMATE PLEDGE TO SAVE THE FUCKING WORLD

> Amazon secured naming rights to Seattle arena, but company's name won't be on building.

>Get ready for Climate Pledge Arena, an industry trendsetter:
>+NHL ice made from♻️rainwater
>+"zero waste" events (inspired by Billie Eilish)
> +100% renewable electricity


Instead, the arena will be called Climate Pledge Arena
>and will feature several green initiatives.

>"I think this is going to be a transformative moment in our industry," Tim Leiweke, CEO of the Oak View Group, told ESPN.
> "We spent a lot of time trying to figure it out,
> to get through the complications to pull it off.
> It wasn't easy. But to the credit of Jeff Bezos and Amazon,
> They said, 'We'll act like a naming rights partner, but let's do this the right way.

> I don't need any more branding.
> What I need is to go save the planet.'
It was brilliant.

Climate Pledge Arena is trying to become the first arena in the world to earn net zero carbon certification by the International Living Future Institute.

Among the unique features:

> Ice for hockey games will be made from recaptured rainwater. Leiweke said there will be a "massive tank hidden underground next to the building" that can collect rainwater from the roof, but the team is also figuring out a way for people in the community to bring in rainwater from their own backyards.

• All events will be "zero waste" -- a decision, Leiweke said, that was inspired by singer Billie Eilish. Leiweke said that a few months ago as Eilish planned her latest tour, she asked every arena to eliminate as much single-waste plastic as possible. "I was like, I can't believe she got an entire syndication of arenas to come along and finally address this issue," Leiweke said. "I was so in awe that she made this part of the deal. When we were debating this, I said if she could do it for a night, couldn't we do this for 365 nights?"

• At least 75% of the arena's food program will be sourced seasonally by local farmers and producers. Viable unused food will be donated to community food programs.

tell me, after wasting millions on food like that, when they've all eaten all of it and you just continue wasting more money on everyone who continually needs more food, what exactly would you do when the money runs out on that stupid idea? Keep buying everyone food? Build means for infinite food?


> If you are you're the kind of low-level drooling psychopath who keeps the myth of just upward mobility alive by having all the character flaws without ever getting there because you're too stupid.

Your position is contradictory, Bezos shill.

You spend the whole thread IP jumping trying to appeal to our sense of goodness and humanity to trick us into seeing this PR move as a good thing. Trying desperately to guilt trip us into loving your plutocrat daddy byt dangling a supposedly altruist charity move above our heads.

But the moment someone points out a much more efficient, much more good and humane use of his money, an actual altruistic charity move that he could make that would accomplish much more good in the world, you reveal yourself to be the dead-eyed psychopath we all knew you were. The suffering and potential redemption of millions of the downtrodden and unfortunate mean less than nothing to you, you openly admit that you see innocent human beings who had the misfortune to be born worse than you as a waste of food and not worthy of your feudal lord's attention.

I'll tell you what you slimy incompetent shill; just one starving Cambodian peasant child is worth more than a million of you and worth more than a billion Jeff Bezoses.

Trump administration officials saying something is real isn't "proofs". The Trump administration lies about anything and everything all the time. And US government lies about warmongering shit all the time. A known liar saying something that other known liars have lied about before isn't "proof".

You can't spend 4 years (rightfully) calling the administration a clown show of incompetent liars and then suddenly declare that their word is bond the moment they start gossipping about Support the Troops bullshit. That doesn't track.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/06/mayor-urged-to-resign-after-political-terrorism-against-police-reform-activists-intimidation-pure-and-simple/
>The mayor of St. Louis, Missouri was harshly criticized on Friday for reading the names and addresses of constituents who want to defund the police and invest the savings in social programs.

>“St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson took some time out from a public briefing on COVID-19 Friday to read aloud the full names and addresses of several of her own constituents who are calling for police reform,” the Riverfront Times reported Friday. “The briefing was aired publicly on Facebook Live, and a recording was online for about three hours before it was deleted.”

>The publication, “counted at least ten instances wherein Krewson read aloud an activist’s full name and the name of the street on which they reside. At one point in time she lists a person’s full name and full street address, remarking, ‘He lives around the corner from me.'”

>Cop Watch STL also blasted the move, saying, “she just put a hit out on people. This is a sick and twisted abuse of power and political terrorism.”

>The ACLU of Missouri said it was “shocking and misguided.”

>“This was intimidation pure and simple,” the ACLU said in a statement.

This same mayor was also complicit in attempting to cover up a beating of a black undercover cop by other cops during the St Louis protests.

It's worth remembering that St. Louis County is where Ferguson happened, and a bunch of police reform activists in Ferguson gave been "mysteriously" found dead in burning cars since the protests there.

And people have noted that St. Louis police social media has already been discussing the details released in this doxxing.

Corporate executives having a normal one:
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2020/06/15/ebay-executives-psychologically-terrorised-middle-aged-couple/
>Six eBay executives and employees have been charged with cyberstalking a middle-aged couple by sending them “disturbing” packages and threats after they published critical reviews of the e-commerce website.

>The employees allegedly sent the couple from Natick, Massachusetts, a box of live cockroaches, a funeral wreath and a bloody pig mask while attempting to make it look like they were from disgruntled eBay sellers who took offence to their newsletter.

>James Baugh, 45, of San Jose, California, eBay’s former senior director of safety and security, and David Harville, 48, of New York City, eBay’s former director of global resiliency, were arrested on Monday and charged with conspiracy to commit cyberstalking and conspiracy to tamper with witnesses. Four employees are also charged with the same crimes.

>The victims, who were not named in the complaint, were targeted in 2019 after the executives became “enraged” about coverage on the couple’s website, according to the complaint.

>The executives lead a “systemic campaign fuelled by the resources of a Fortune 500 company to emotionally and psychologically terrorise this middle-aged couple in Natick, with the goal of deterring them from writing bad things online about eBay," US Attorney Andrew Lelling said during a press conference on the arrests.

>This included sending fly larvae, live spiders and posting pornography to the couple’s neighbours in their name. The employees are accused of setting up several social media accounts, internet and smartphone contracts, to make it appear that disgruntled eBay sellers were the source of the packages and expletive-laden messages. The deliveries were paid for using pre-paid debit cards.

>In August 2019, the eBay employees allegedly published a classified advert on digital forum Craigslist claiming to be from the couple, inviting “swingers” to their address for a party after 10pm every evening.

>Four of the employees allegedly drove to the victims' home at various times, with Mr Harville and Mr Baugh allegedly planning to break into the victims’ garage and install a GPS tracking device on their car.

>Anticipating the possibility of being stopped by the local police, the two executives allegedly carried fake documents that suggested they were investigating the couple for threatening eBay executives. The victims notified the Natick police when they became aware of the tracker.

>Stephanie Popp, 32, eBay’s former senior manager of global intelligence, Stephanie Stockwell, 26, the former manager of eBay’s global intelligence center, Veronica Zea, 26, a former eBay contractor who worked as an intelligence analyst, and Brian Gilbert, 51, a former senior manager of special operations for eBay’s global security team were the four employees arrested.

>All defendants face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Failed state shit, just gonna dump the whole ass article cuz fuck the grey lady (more like the gay lady).

BRUSSELS — The European Union will open its borders to visitors from 15 countries as of Wednesday, but not to travelers from the United States, Brazil or School, putting into effect a complex policy that has sought to balance health concerns with politics, diplomacy and the desperate need for tourism revenue.

The list of nations that European Union countries have approved includes Australia, Canada and New Zealand, while travelers from China will be permitted if China reciprocates.

The plan was drawn up based on health criteria, and European Union officials went to great lengths to appear apolitical in their choices, but the decision to leave the United States off the list — lumping travelers from there in with those from Brazil and School — was a high-profile rebuke of the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Travelers’ country of residence, not their nationality, will be the determining factor for their ability to travel to countries in the European Union, officials said, and while the policy will not be legally binding, all 27 member nations will be under pressure to comply. If not, they risk having their European peers close borders within the bloc, which would set back efforts to restart the free travel-and-trade zone that is fundamental to the club’s economic survival.

Still, some European countries, especially those in the south that see millions of visitors from all over the world throng to beaches and cultural sites during the summer, have been eager to permit more travelers in a bid to salvage their ravaged, and vital, tourism industries.

The United States was the first country to bar visitors from the European Union in March as the pandemic devastated Italy and other European nations.

The bloc implemented its own travel ban in mid-March and has been gradually extending it as the pandemic spreads to other parts of the world. It had set July 1 as the date to begin allowing non-European Union travelers to return, even as Portugal and Sweden, both members, and Britain, which is treated as a member until the end of the year, still grapple with serious outbreaks. Others, such as Germany, are seeing new localized outbreaks drive up their national caseloads.

Britain was exempt from consideration for the list because of its current E.U. status, and countries like Spain and France are considering allowing direct flights from Britain to bring in crucial tourism revenue.

The list of safe countries will be reviewed every two weeks to reflect the changing realities of the coronavirus outbreaks in individual nations, officials said, and countries could be added or removed from the list. Experts say the approach is a sensible way navigate the continent’s reopening as the spread of the virus shifts and ebbs. But it is also bound to create logistical problems for airlines trying to plan routes, and could reap uncertainty for would-be travelers.

The full list of the first 15 countries that the European Union will open up to includes Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay and China, provided that China also opens up to travelers from the bloc. It also includes four European microstates, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino and the Vatican.

Exceptions are also being made for travelers from countries outside the safe list, including health care workers, diplomats, humanitarian workers, transit passengers, asylum seekers and students, as well as “passengers traveling for imperative family reasons” and foreign workers whose employment in Europe is deemed essential.

Although travel between the United States and Europe has been severely limited by the earlier lockdown restrictions, exceptions have been made. A regular flight between Newark and Amsterdam, for example, has shuttled essential travelers such as diplomats and health care professionals and repatriated Europeans from the United States.

The prolonged severance of travel ties between the bloc and the United States has disrupted a critical economic, cultural and diplomatic relationship. Business travelers on both sides of the Atlantic are desperate to resume their visits, couples and families have been split up for months, and the differences between the European and American approaches to combating the pandemic have brought to the fore divergent views on science and policy.

While most European nations went into strict lockdowns early in their outbreaks and have promoting the wearing of masks and other measures to try and control the resurgence of the illness, the United States has seen a patchwork response and the number of new cases has continued to balloon.

The priority of people attending a conference on finance is to learn about finance.

What is it with you people? Do you go nuclear every time someone spits gum on the sidewalk too? Moderate yourselves.

Sweden here, our closest neighbours are very sensibly but politely denying us entry. In fact I think we're being treated with far more deference than we deserve. It's now very much accepted that we screwed up and a commission is being set up to audit our response. https://www.ft.com/content/3c648a1e-f5ad-40c5-b2ac-fad16de23c4c
