After months of political wrangling, the House late Friday night passed a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill to modernize highways, rebuild water lines and provide billions for electric vehicle charging stations, the largest transportation spending package in U.S. history.

The passage is a victory for Democrats and President Joe Biden, who had suffered a stinging defeat in Tuesday’s elections.

The bill, passed by the Senate in August, will now be sent to Biden who is expected to sign it into law. 

The 228-206 vote followed bitter differences between Democratic progressives and moderates who clashed over the size and scope of Biden’s $1.85 trillion Build Back Better budget bill that would expand social safety net programs and enact sweeping climate programs. The deal Democrats struck allowed passage of the infrastructure bill Friday and a promise that the larger bill would get a vote later this month.

Robinhood Banning GameStop Proves the Free Market Is a Lie

Leave a comment

.

Robinhood is a stock-trading app that exists to “democratize finance” — but will also, on occasion, prohibit you from buying stocks because democratically unaccountable experts have declared them overpriced.

This was the befuddling message that Robinhood sent to its readers Thursday morning, as the most befuddling stock craze in modern memory pushed the price of a GameStop share above $440.

As of this writing, the GameStop rally appears to be fading. But the questions the phenomenon has raised — about the ethics of gamified stock-trading apps, the inequalities between large and small investors, how share prices are actually determined, and what the stock market is for — seem to grow more numerous and vexing by the hour. Fortunately, Chris Arnade may have some answers. The former bond trader spent two decades on Wall Street before growing disillusioned with his profession’s culture of cynicism and greed. In recent years, he’s invested the bulk of his time into photography and writing, typically about social class and poverty in the U.S. But he’s hedged these productive activities with no small amount of leisurely lurking on Reddit. Which makes his brain all the more fit for picking.

Beirut explosion brings city ‘to its knees’ as residents grapple with loss, destruction

BEIRUT — It seemed like all hope was lost.

But after 15 hours buried under the rubble of his home in Beirut, Imad Atar was miraculously pulled out alive by a civil defense team Wednesday, punching the air weakly with joy as crowds clapped, cried and cheered in an emotional display.

Drenched in sweat from the August sun, the team of volunteers used pickaxes and shovels to dig Atar out from under the rubble of his home in the Geitawi neighborhood, in the east of the Lebanese capital.

A roar of joy reverberated through the streets as the volunteers screamed “he’s alive!” and pulled him out along with items from his former home — a pair of slippers, children’s toys, and jewelry.

Why The U.S. Needs To Do Reparations Now

Leave a comment

.

Defunding the police is just part of the structural reform needed to root out racism in the U.S., says Mehrsa Baradaran, a law professor at the University of California, Irvine, who studies the economic inequities between Black and white Americans.

What’s truly needed is a big-picture rethink of U.S. policy at every level, she told HuffPost in an interview by phone and in follow-ups over email this week. 

In her 2017 book “The Color of Money,” Baradaran lays out how, over centuries, policymakers wrote Black Americans out of the economic system — and how policies blocking Black people from obtaining mortgages, land, and credit created an immense wealth gap between Black and white Americans that persists to this day. In her book, Baradaran says that after slavery was abolished, Black Americans held just .5% of all the wealth in the U.S. Today, the number is barely higher, at about 1%.

Baradaran’s work resonates now as millions protest around the U.S. ― speaking out not only against police brutality against Black Americans but the systemic racism that pervades America’s institutions. The coronavirus pandemic has revealed the devastating effects of this inequality, as Black Americans disproportionately bear the brunt of fatalities from the virus and its economic fallout.

Here Is What Facebook Won’t Tell You About Message Encryption

Leave a comment

.

In the world of individual privacy and data security, this could be the ultimate irony. Facebook, the company that has taken more fire than any other for misusing, abusing, and losing user data, has become the last line of defense in the fight against government access to that same user data. Led by the U.S. and U.K., Facebook is under increasing pressure to delay plans to expand encryption across its platforms until backdoors can be added to enable government agencies access to user content.

But is everything as it seems? Has Facebook really turned away from its casual approach to user data to become the poster child for user privacy? Facebook has its own dilemma around monetizing data on an encrypted platform, so what motive does it have to promote security at the expense of its own access? Unsurprisingly, the answer is that Facebook’s agenda is not quite the surprise it may have seemed.

Quick recap. Despite building a business around the monetization of user data, Facebook also owns WhatsApp, the world’s preeminent messaging platform, now used by some 1.6 billion users monthly. Back in 2016, WhatsApp completed its deployment of end-to-end encryption. For the first time, a universally popular messaging service had given up the ability to access the content it was transmitting.

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
