#freespeech #censorship #cancelculture #wrongthink #australia Labor Tells Facebook to Censor Rival Lawmaker Craig Kelly’s “Harmful” Content Australia’s opposition Labor party wants Facebook to keep a very close eye on content posted by MP Craig Kelly, a member of the ruling party, denouncing his posts shared on the social media giant as harmful to public health. Once again, the coronavirus epidemic and a difference of opinion on how to most effectively combat it seems to be politicized and used in partisan showdowns. In this instance, Kelly appears to be a Covid vaccine skeptic, and a proponent of treating the disease with the drug hydroxychloroquine.

#wrongthink #tiktok #factcheck TikTok to Prompt Users When Videos Are “Misleading” China’s massive viral video platform TikTok is making sure not to lag far behind its western competitors in trying to control the way users have access to information, and in making efforts to interpret information that is available to them. A newly announced policy will prod users who are attempting to share a video previously slapped with a misleading label to go in a different direction, a company blog post revealed on Wednesday. This applies only to that content that has not already been removed thanks to flagging by fact-checkers that TikTok hires, the post explains.

The Not-So-Secret Weapon of China: Rare Earth Metals While the onset of the coronavirus pandemic has triggered a gradual shift in global supply chains that will likely reduce the dominance of China in the manufacturing of consumer goods, the Asian country has another, perhaps even more important, ace up its sleeve: rare earth metals, an analysis by news portal Mandiner warns. The name “rare earth” refers to the 17 elements that occur in significant amounts in the earth’s crust, but concentrated mineral deposits from which they can be extracted economically are quite rare. Their importance is enormous in the 21st century, as they are essential in the manufacture of computers, smartphones and other technical devices due to their special physical properties. To name just one of them, which the average reader has probably never heard of before: Cerium is used in catalytic converters, LCD and plasma screens, oil refining, rechargeable batteries and smartphones. China controls 70 percent of the annual 9,104 tons of Cerium exported around the world, with over half going to Japan and another 20 percent to the United States.
