Facebook, Cambridge Analytica and Why Your Data is Still for Sale

04 Apr 2024  |  digitalethics.org
The Location Privacy Protection Act, introduced by Senator Al Franken in 2011 to prevent unauthorized location tracking, faced opposition from the tech industry, including companies like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, due to concerns over the impact on location-based services. Despite the public's growing need for data privacy regulation, especially after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the U.S. has not passed a major federal data privacy law since 2009. The tech industry's significant lobbying power, with companies spending millions annually, has been a major factor in stalling legislation. The European Union's GDPR represents a stricter approach to data privacy, which contrasts with the U.S.'s sectoral and self-regulatory model. The article suggests that while public outcry and recent privacy breaches have prompted legislative proposals, the tech industry's influence continues to challenge the establishment of comprehensive privacy laws in the U.S.

Denmark's New Feminist Party and the Fight for Gender Equality

08 Mar 2023  |  The World from PRX
The article discusses the emergence of the Feministisk Initiativ (F!), an intersectional feminist party in Denmark, which recently participated in Copenhagen's municipal elections. Despite Denmark's international reputation as a progressive country, it has seen stagnation in gender equality and a rise in anti-immigration sentiment. F! aims to address these issues with policies such as equal parental leave, gender quotas, and anonymized job applications. The party, inspired by similar movements in other Scandinavian countries, did not win seats but gained enough votes to consider running in the parliamentary elections. The article highlights the challenges and potential impact of F! on Danish and global feminism, as well as the broader context of gender equality in Denmark, including the gender pay gap and political representation.

Muslim Women in Denmark Defy the Face Veil Ban

02 Aug 2018  |  Yahoo Entertainment
Muslim women in Denmark, led by the organization Kvinder i Dialog, are defying a new ban on face coverings in public places, viewing it as an act of civil disobedience and a protest against what they perceive as racist, Islamophobic, and oppressive politics. The ban, which does not specifically mention the niqab or burqa, is enforced with fines and has been criticized by human rights groups as a violation of women's rights. Despite the ban, women like Sabina and Sarah are determined to assert their right to live as practicing Muslims in Denmark, even if it means facing fines or changing their daily routines. The ban has sparked a wider debate about social cohesion, gender equality, and the integration of immigrant cultures in Denmark.

Europe's economic crisis sends Spaniards to Morocco for jobs

02 Apr 2018  |  The Christian Science Monitor
The article discusses the reversal of the traditional migration pattern due to Europe's economic crisis, with Europeans, particularly Spaniards, moving to Morocco in search of employment. Marcos Martinez Bacelo, a Spanish mechanic, represents this trend as he left his family in Spain to work in Morocco after facing unemployment. The number of Spaniards in Morocco has increased significantly, with many working without benefits but still managing to live comfortably due to the favorable exchange rate. The article also touches on the cultural differences experienced by Spaniards in Morocco and the desperation of those seeking work. It highlights the impact of the crisis on the Spanish restaurant industry and the shift in migration patterns as a surprising outcome of the economic downturn.

Coworking on the Surf: How a Danish Village’s Coworking Space Is Building a Community

02 Apr 2018  |  New Worker Magazine
The article discusses Cowork Klitmøller, a coworking space in Klitmøller, Denmark, founded by local surfer Rasmus Johnsen. Klitmøller, known as 'Cold Hawaii', is a small fishing village that has become a surf hotspot in Europe. Johnsen's initiative aims to foster a community where locals and visitors, including surfers and professionals, can work and interact harmoniously. The coworking space is part of a broader effort to rebrand and promote tourism in Northwest Denmark without alienating the local population. Cowork Klitmøller features a unique design, including a sauna and hot tub, and is located near the North Sea, offering easy access to surfing. The space has nine permanent residents and a community of 'beta-residents' who use the facilities part-time. Johnsen has no plans to expand Cowork into a larger enterprise but hopes to encourage a collaborative environment between visitors and locals. Another coworking space, Surf & Work, is also being developed nearby in Vorupør.

Back on the dance floor: Boston Marathon victim inspires prosthetics innovation

22 Apr 2014  |  csmonitor.com
Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a ballroom dance teacher and Boston Marathon bombing victim, inspired a prosthetics innovation by Hugh Herr, director of the Biomechatronics group at the MIT Media Lab. Herr, a double leg amputee, developed a bionic limb that allowed Haslet-Davis to dance the rhumba. The limb uses motors, springs, and microprocessors to create a natural gait and reduce the risk of osteoarthritis. Herr's team commercialized the prosthetic through BiOM, which has provided limbs to over 900 amputees, including 400 wounded US soldiers. The technology is still evolving, with goals to connect bionic limbs to the brain and add sensory feedback. The high cost of prosthetics remains a barrier, but efforts like No Barriers Boston aim to provide sport-specific prosthetic limbs to those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.
