Former Facebook executive says tech giants are ‘threat to democracy’.
“Facebook was founded, by a group of people that have, historically, been much more influential, much more publicly than the rest of the world,” Facebook’s Michael Klimov wrote in an email. “It’s because people who speak a different language, that has been more influential.”
Klimov was at Facebook for a conference where they discussed how to help people that do not have jobs and how to organize social media companies to impact people. Facebook’s “people-focused, inclusive, and supportive social media community” does not exist in the way many people in the world do. It is a network of “safe spaces” where the company is willing to actively recruit, even if only “because this community is for other people,” Klimov wrote.
“You never get a company with a clear goal,” he said. “You don’t get a user base, you don’t even a couple of hundred, but a majority of people say they like this organization.”
Klimov has become involved in social media with many of his employees, including a close friend Michael Pritchett. Pritchett, the founder of Facebook as soon as it launched, was a major influence on Klimov’s decision. The Facebook spokesperson did not respond to an interview requests if Klimov would be included in their team.<|endoftext|>By Adam Grant
The New York City Police Department’s anti-terrorism unit is looking to expand in areas such as the harbor of the St. Regency Hotel on the south side of town. This new, multimillion-dollar unit will be able to conduct undercover operations without the knowledge of the NYPD.
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) announced today several new undercover investigations into the New York City subway station system, including the New York City Emergency Response Team (NYPD) presence along with the nation’s largest surveillance system that collects data from the entire NYPD system. They will be operated by NYC Department of Serious Crime Officers (NYPD) along with undercover intelligence of international passengers and non-criminal surveillance techniques that will help the police in the field better identify and eventually help prevent terrorist attacks. The two units are part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
“We’re looking to expand also to other aspects of operations, including training of anti-terrorism training,” said Mayor Bloomberg Paul Getty.
It’s unclear if any of the undercover operatives will be willing to speak on the condition of anonymity. In an anonymous spokesperson, the city spokesman declined to confirm the officers’ identities, nor how many of the undercover operatives will ever be arrested.
The NYPD does not have formal intelligence capabilities that would allow officers to operate the NYPD’s anti-terrorism units. This means that the department will not be coordinating with all the US military, such as the Pentagon, which is also planning a full-force deployment to the United States military base in St. Regency.
When asked if his investigation into the department’s use of the NYPD was a secret, New York Attorney General Eric Holder said that “this is a private matter to avoid a secret investigation.”
“The NYPD is committed to enforcing the Americans’ civil liberties here, and we are investigating it and will continue to do it,” Holder said.
The NYPD is also looking to expand its operation to several other areas and will use the most high-ranking among them. The organization will also expand its operation in “special situations” such as criminal investigations where investigators can speak into the use of a law-enforcement network to trace criminals and catch “reporters of identity.” The NYPD is also looking for “any and all individuals susceptible to identity fraud and identity theft attacks, whether in a physical location, including individuals with criminal records, individuals who have stolen property and then fabricated these identities using a criminal database.”
“We’ll continue to investigate and improve the NYPD anti-terrorism units that the NYPD operates,” said State of the Union Police Executive Director, Lt. Col. Ed Ehlinger.
The NYPD recently opened a two-year “anti-terrorism training week,” which will train officers specifically on the use of the NYPD anti-terrorism methods.
The training will go to an annual diversity of anti-terrorism training sessions, such as law enforcement training on policing and law enforcement operations. Officers from other city police departments will join other NYPD personnel on the program in the coming weeks to discuss anti-terrorism training.
According to the NYPD, the training consists of a number of areas including “enhanced training for law enforcement purposes,” “advanced information technology and analytics skills,” “enhanced operational intelligence, intelligence gathering, criminal justice activities and counter-terrorism operations.”
“I take the NYPD seriously as an institution of law enforcement,” said Mark Zipperman, who serves as the liaison for the NYCLU and is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
“The NYPD can offer training related to the use of various anti-terrorism techniques
