The publication of the so-called ‘Facebook Papers’ confirms what activists, journalists, and civil society organizations in the Global South have been alleging for years: that Facebook chronically underinvests in non-Western countries, leaving millions of users exposed to disinformation, hate speech, and violent content.

The Facebook Papers reveal staggering failures in the Global South

So it's out, the official trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on Frank Herbert's Dune.

I like it. I like how they portrayed the Litany Against Fear. Oh and the Harkonnens too. And the fight scenes with personal shields etc. The Space Ships & Ornithopters. Oh and also Shai Hulud, of course.

The Spice Must Flow etc., etc.,. Good stuff.

The Busyness Paradox, Explained:

Here’s how the busyness paradox works: When we’re busy and have that high-octane, panicked feeling that time is scarce — what one participant called the “sustained moment of hecticness” through the work day — our attention and ability to focus narrows. Behavioral researchers call this phenomenon “tunneling.” And, like being in a tunnel, we’re only able to concentrate on the most immediate, and often low value, tasks right in front of us. (Research has found we actually lose about 13 IQ points in this state.) We run around putting out fires all day, racing to meetings, ploughing through emails, and getting to 5 or 6 PM with the sick realization that we haven’t even started our most important work of the day.

So we stay late at the office, or take work home in the evenings or weekends, and effectively steal time for work away from the rest of our lives. “If you’re in this firefighting state of time pressure and tunneling, you’re not making time to meet long-term goals. You’re not dealing with any of the root causes that led to the firefighting in the first place,” said Matthew Darling, ideas42 vice president and project lead. “The tendency is to do the stuff that’s easy to check off. That’s all you have the bandwidth for.” Tunneling and busyness are mutually reinforcing, Darling added. “Focusing on short-term tasks makes you not make strategic plans, which causes you to be busy.”

"The new allegations appear to stem from what Nissan has described as an 'ongoing' investigation into potential financial improprieties. But that project has itself proved highly controversial. In January, Carlos Munoz, the former head of Nissan’s North American operations, resigned in a dispute over the effort. Toshiyuki Shiga, former Nissan Chief Operating Officer, who had continued serving on the Nissan board, also tendered his resignation, privately raising concerns over the handling of the Ghosn case."
