Uncharted Territory

The shipping #industry needs to deliver cleaner #cargo ships, or we’re all sunk.

source: https://grist.org/article/shipping-industry-destroying-climate-progress-were-all-to-blame/
The International Maritime Organization (IMO), the industry’s main regulator, suggests that #carbon emissions from shipping could shoot up as much as 250 percent by 2050 as the world’s population grows and economies expand. At that point, the European Parliament estimates the industry could produce 17 percent of global emissions, up from less than 3 percent today.

But Tristan Smith, a leading shipping researcher at University College London’s Energy Institute, notes comp

#YouTube: Something is wrong on the #internet

source: https://medium.com/@jamesbridle/something-is-wrong-on-the-internet-c39c471271d2
What concerns me is not just the #violence being done to #children here, although that concerns me deeply. What concerns me is that this is just one aspect of a kind of infrastructural violence being done to all of us, all of the time, and we’re still struggling to find a way to even talk about it, to describe its mechanisms and its actions and its effects. As I said at the beginning of this #essay: this is being done by people and by things and by a combination of things and people.

The 23% hacker girls ...

I'm traveling around at the moment. Today I was at a hacker space in a nice big town at the coast. I met a girl hacker team. They only hack bank accounts of male managers and steal 23% of the money. As you all know 23% is the unadjusted gender pay gap. Now they build up a center with this money, where the managers could win their money back. They have to do a challenge there against women to show that they are 23% better. If they are better than 23% they will get all their money back. If not they will only get the percentage they're better as the women. The money that stays over goes into sex changes for poor women, who need a better salary.

How Booking.com manipulates you

But my favorite one is this red badge:

Although it cannot be seen on the screenshot, the badge doesn’t appear right away when you open the page. Instead, it pops up one or two seconds later, making it seem like a realtime notification — an impression reinforced by the alarm clock icon. To be clear, it is not realtime, and there is no reason to delay its display other than to trick you:

How Booking.com manipulates you

Scientists find #gold worth $2 million in Swiss #sewage

source: http://money.cnn.com/2017/10/11/news/gold-switzerland-water-sewage-waste/index.html
An estimated 95 pounds of gold is flushed through Swiss sewage systems each year, according to a study by the aquatic science institute Eawag.

The lost gold is worth nearly $2 million at current prices.

The researchers believe the tiny flecks of gold flow into the waste water system from the country's famed watchmaking #industry and gold refineries.

#Twitter takes down 300,000 #terror accounts as #AI tools improve

The company further emphasizes it killed a majority of the pro-terrorism accounts set up on its platform before they could post anything: “Notably, 75% of these accounts were suspended before posting their first Tweet,” it writes.
How can they kill an account before the first tweet?

First I thought they identify the terrorists, on whom they follow. But if they know, that this account is following terrorist, why didn't they kill these accounts first? I think it is impossible to kill an account before the first post. This is pure c... mehr anzeigen

My saying is — again, I’m not racist — every black person has a price.
Meaning: a price at which they can be convinced to leave their home and make way for the next white person, which pays more.

#Chocolate #industry drives #rainforest #disaster in Ivory Coast

According to the Guardian’s research, "cocoa is a monster that will eventually eat itself, scientists say. Farmers will miss the trees they cut and burned down for the very reason that their shade would have protected their #cocoa #plants from increasingly parched, dry seasons, driven by cutting down trees."

“It’s white people who eat chocolate, not us,” one says.
Is our appetite for chocolate destroying the rainforests?

In many cases, the outside developers and graphic designers they enlisted to help often took a condescending tone over #email. These collaborators, who were almost always male, were often short, slow to respond, and vaguely disrespectful in correspondence.
