    In the months leading to India’s local Delhi elections in February 2020, Zhang worked to take down a “politically-sophisticated network of more than a thousand actors working to influence the election.” And over the past months, Facebook removed 672,000 “low-quality fake accounts” that sought to manipulate COVID-19-related information on the Spanish Health Ministry’s page and on US pages. Zhang has also revealed in her memo that the company removed 10.5 million fake reactions and fans from high-profile politician pages in Brazil and the US during the elections in 2018.

    As quoted by WrestlingNews.co, Arn Anderson took to his ARN podcast with Conrade Thompson and opened up about the backstage reaction to WWE superstars Lana and Rusev announcing their engagement on social media in 2015.

Samuel Crankshaw, a communications associate at the Kentucky's ACLU, expressed his disdain for the admissions decision in a now-private Facebook post, alleging that Sandmann and his attorney spread QAnon conspiracy theories and is "more dangerous" than Milo Yiannopoulos. Does anyone else think it’s a bit of a stain on Transylvania University for accepting Nick Sandman? I’m sure it’s a “both sides” defense, but it’s pretty counter to their mission and another instance of there not actually being equal sides to an issue. I think TU should accept anyone willing to have an open mind and engage in...

    I am retired, and with all the recent layoffs, I’ve been asked by former colleagues if they can use me as a reference. While I was still working, we were told not to reply to any of these calls or e-mails, but to forward to human resources. Are there any guidelines that I should know before I reply?

In most states, employers are protected from liability for relaying true information that is without malice to a former employee’s prospective employer. If an employer makes false statements or acts with reckless disregard, the employee may...
