Electric shocks to the tongue can quiet chronic ringing ears
Hubert Lim, a biomedical engineer at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, hit on the role of the tongue in tinnitus by accident.
Tinnitus—a constant ringing or buzzing in the ears that affects about 15% of people—is difficult to understand and even harder to treat. Now, scientists have shown shocking the tongue—combined with a carefully designed sound program—can reduce symptoms of the disorder, not just while patients are being treated, but up to 1 year later.

Trump’s Taxes Give Biden Blueprint to Fix System Rigged for Rich
Rich Americans and a small army of sophisticated advisers have perfected the art of tax avoidance: Wealthy families set up complex trusts, private pensions, and life insurance schemes to lower their taxes. Silicon Valley startups valued in the billions of dollars grab tax breaks meant for small businesses. Multinational corporations shift profits to overseas tax havens. Add it up and, according to one estimate, billionaires now pay lower overall tax rates than working-class Americans hovering above the poverty line.

THE SOCIAL MEDIA MOVIE

ALL THE FACTS IN THIS MOVIE ARE CORRECT.

REMEMBER THE FACTS PRESENTED IN THIS MOVIE ARE TRUE. THEY WERE TRUE  BEFORE YOU EVER SAW THE MOVIE. THIS SITUATION STARTED IN 1994 THAT IS WHEN IT BECAME LEGAL TO  ALLOW COMMERCIAL BUSINESS TO SELL PRODUCTS ON THE INTERNET. BEFORE 1994 ONLY ACADEMICS / UNIVERSITY / GOV/T USED THE INTERNET.

‘Social Dilemma’ Star Tristan Harris Responds to Criticisms of the Film, Netflix’s Algorithm. In a new interview, the former Google design ethicist weighs in on the backlash to the popular Netflix doc.

FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, GOOGLE, YOUTUBE, TWITTER, LINKEDIN Platforms have a mind of their own and they’ve become  digital Frankensteins that no one knows how it works, but all we know is that it tends to reward the worst aspects in society.

The insiders  say, “Look, I helped build this thing …”

 the attention economy

Everyone is competing in a finite attention economy and that’s the problem we have to face is that because it is a commons, it is an attention commons, it is a consciousness commons, we are all sharing one airspace of finite amount of attention.. We have a shared commons and we are overshooting the limited capacity of attention that we have as a culture with essentially trivia.

We give people so much trivia and trivialities and egoism and passivity that we devolve not through restricting ourselves, but by overwhelming us with our vices.

FAKE NEWS SPREADS SIX TIMES FASTER THAN THE TRUTH

THESE TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS CREATE MASS CHAOS, LONELINESS, POLARIZATION, MORE ELECTION HACKING, AND MORE INABILITY TO FOCUS ON THE REAL ISSUES.

“This is checkmate to the humanity”

If you look at all the recommended videos across YouTube in English, what words were used the most. I think the list was hates, obliterates, destroys, owns, right? 

Yup. Checkmate on humanity,” tools to destabilize every country, everywhere.

EVERY SINGLE ACTION YOU TAKE ONLINE IS BEING TRACKED, AND CAREFULLY MONITORED AND RECORDED.

ENGINEERS USE PSYCHOLOGY AGAINST YOU – TO MAKE YOU ADDICTED TO THE DEVISE – TO MAKE ADVERTISERS PAY MONEY FOR YOUR ATTENTION.

THESE ENGINEERS COULD BE CURING CANCER OR SAVING THE PLANET BUT THEY ARE WASTING THEIR BRAINS TEACHING COMPUTERS TO  BE SMARTER ABOUT  HOW TO SPY ON YOU EVEN MORE  THEN HOW THE COMPUTER DID IT YESTERDAY AND YOU ARE DEFENSELESS

“A WHOLE GENERATION IS MORE ANXIOUS – MORE DEPRESSED”

What makes a healthy social fabric or weren’t designed by child psychologists to say what’s good for children.” They were just designed based on, TURNING UP ENGAGEMENT TO SELL ADVERTISING

ETHICAL PROTOCOL

Humane technology for kids

SHOULD YOU ALLOW YOUR KIDS ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHEN THE CEO’S OF THESE COMPANIES DON’T LET THEIR OWN KIDS GO ON IT?

Monopoly Power Anti-Trust Arguments that are proceeding right now on Capitol Hill.

The fact that children who want to opt out of Instagram, don’t have another place to go, but another addictive manipulative system of TikTok.

YOUR ARE MANIPULATED BY ALGORITHMS THAT ARE WATCHING EVERYTHING YOU DO. Advertising AI, IS trying to figure out how do we make sure that each session is as profitable as possible.

“What was the key to addicting a user and getting you for life?” “It was very simple,” he said. “All we had to do was get you to seven users in 10 days and then we had you for life.” That’s literally what that playbook said.

There’s a business model built on automating where 3 billion people’s attention goes, in languages that the engineers don’t speak, and you have cases where two years ago a teen girl who went to watch a dieting video, what does YouTube recommend on the right hand side for all those teen girls? Thinspiration anorexia videos because those were better at keeping attention.

NO ONE GETS THE SAME RESULTS FROM GOOGLE –
YOUR RESULTS DEPEND ON WHERE YOU LIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM

People don’t know they are being tracked and influenced.

Living under surveillance capitalism

Surveillance Capitalism and you don’t care.

“If everyone is entitled to their own facts there is really no reason for people to interact.”

Social Media is actually the biggest threat.

Former Twitter executive Jeff Seibert said: “What I want people to know is that every single action you take [online] is carefully monitored and recorded.

“Exactly what image you stop and look at, for how long you look at it.”

“The social dilemma on Netflix is haunting. It doesn’t shy away from the truth. ‘You are the product’ is too simplistic, ‘It’s the gradual change in your behavior and perception that is the product.’

Facebook, also owns Instagram.
