Facebook, White House Colluding on Censorship: Lawsuit
Facebook is censoring Americans at the behest of President Joe Biden’s administration in violation of the First Amendment, a new lawsuit alleges.
As evidence of the collusion, the class action complaint quotes White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s recent admission that the administration is “flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.”
“When she said that they were working with Big Tech then it changes everything because then it’s the government censoring, so that obviously can’t stand,” Richard Rogalinski, the plaintiff, told The Epoch Times.
Rogalinski made several posts about COVID-19 this year, including on April 6 remarking how he has seen data showing masks do not prevent the spread of the virus that causes the disease.
He has seen those posts appended with statements directing people to articles by so-called fact-checkers.
DAWG SAYS: THE ADMISSION MADE BY THE PRESS SECRETARY SHOWS FACEBOOK IS WORKING AS AN AGENT OF THE GOVERNMENT AND SUBJECT TO THE 1st AMMENDMENT STATUTES.

In a statement on late Saturday, Harris spokeswoman Symone Sanders said it “was determined the Vice President and her staff present at the meeting were not at risk of exposure because they were not in close contact with those who tested positive and therefore do not need to be tested or quarantined.”
Harris met with some Texas state legislators on July 13 after they fled the state.

Bellone says allegation cops assaulted woman after Dix Hills shooting was ‘false’
Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone on Friday said the preliminary results of an internal affairs investigation into an allegation that police assaulted a woman who was attempting to assist a shooting victim at a Dix Hills graduation party was found to be “false” based on fire department dashboard camera video.
“The fact is that the evidence gathered in this investigation reveals that the allegation that officers physically assaulted this individual for no reason is false,” said Bellone, speaking at a news conference at Suffolk government headquarters in Hauppauge. “The evidence, in fact, indicated these officers acted in the best interests of this victim.”
Cindy M. O’Pharrow, president of Cops N’ Kids Long Island — a police-youth mentoring program — last week filed a notice of claim against the county and the police department, alleging she injured her arm when she was forcibly removed by police from the rear of an ambulance on June 27.
O’Pharrow had also alleged police swore at her, refused to provide their names and shined their flashlights into her cell phone camera as she attempted to take photo and video of officers at the scene. Those allegations were not addressed Friday and remain under investigation.

Fish Species Getting New Name to Combat Racism Concerns — and Make It More Appetizing
The dish hasn’t caught on with U.S. consumers, despite its popularity in much of the world
Minnesota state Sen. Foung Hawj was never a fan of the “Asian carp” label commonly applied to four imported fish species that are wreaking havoc in the U.S. heartland, infesting numerous rivers and bearing down on the Great Lakes.
But the last straw came when an Asian business delegation arriving at the Minneapolis airport encountered a sign reading “Kill Asian Carp.” It was a well-intentioned plea to prevent the spread of the invasive fish. But the message was off-putting to the visitors.
Hawj and fellow Sen. John Hoffman in 2014 won approval of a measure requiring that Minnesota agencies refer to the fish as “invasive carp,” despite backlash from the late radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, who ridiculed it as political correctness.
DAWG SAYS: APPARENTLY, WE HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO WORRY ABOUT THAN A NAME OF A FISH.
Storing medical information below the skin’s surface
Every year, a lack of vaccination leads to about 1.5 million preventable deaths, primarily in developing nations. One factor that makes vaccination campaigns in those nations more difficult is that there is little infrastructure for storing medical records, so there’s often no easy way to determine who needs a particular vaccine.
MIT researchers have now developed a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.
“In areas where paper vaccination cards are often lost or do not exist at all, and electronic databases are unheard of, this technology could enable the rapid and anonymous detection of patient vaccination history to ensure that every child is vaccinated,” says Kevin McHugh, a former MIT postdoc who is now an assistant professor of bioengineering at Rice University.
The researchers showed that their new dye, which consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots, can remain for at least five years under the skin, where it emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.
The research was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Koch Institute Support (core) Grant from the National Cancer Institute.

Judge Rejects Arizona Senate’s Motion to Keep Election Audit Records Private
The lawsuit was filed by watchdog group American Oversight and sought records of communications between Senate officials and external vendors working on the audit, including Florida-based cybersecurity firm Cyber Ninjas, a private company hired by the Arizona Senate to oversee the audit of Arizona’s most populous county. It also sought documents related to the cost of the audit, donor information, and its operations.
“It is difficult to conceive of a case with a more compelling public interest demanding public disclosure and public scrutiny,” Judge Michael Kemp of the Arizona Superior Court in Maricopa County wrote in a seven-page ruling.

Woman Rents Ex’s Car on Sharing App
Runs 49 Red Lights as Revenge
Breaking up with a significant other can send one’s emotions flying high and ultimately lead to less-than-sensible actions, some of which can often be illegal. That’s exactly what a woman from Zhejiang, China recently set out to do, and was eventually arrested for renting her ex-boyfriend’s car with the sole purpose of racking up traffic violations.
The woman, who is identified in local reports simply as Lou, is accused of carrying out a revenge plot against her ex by renting his Audi via a car-sharing app for $124 (800 yuan) per day and running red lights a total of not one, two, but 49 times(!) over a two-day span.
According to police, Lou’s ex-boyfriend Qian had recently broken up with her to pursue another relationship. This infuriated Lou, sending her down the slippery path of revenge that eventually led to the weird vehicular conspiracy.
