NEW RESOURCES

Spotted in Calishat Snaps: SketchTV.lol. From the About Page: “SketchTV.lol is all about building a database of comedy sketches. There’s no place on the internet that catalogs individual sketches to make them easy to find by category, person, year, etc…” Looks like the site launched in late June.

Institute for Transportation & Development Policy: Turning Data into Policy with the Atlas of Sustainable City Transport . “ITDP presents the all-new Atlas of Sustainable City Transport, a global data dashboard measuring indicators of all modes of sustainable transport in 1,000 urban areas and tens of thousands of jurisdictions worldwide. The Atlas is a powerful tool for planners and officials to develop meaningful goals for sustainable transport while measuring their own progress and that of peers.”

Government of Hong Kong: A virtual tour of Chinese medicines. “The Digital Herbarium for Chinese Medicines was established via the digitalisation of Chinese medicine specimens into a digital collection that covers high-resolution pictures and related data of hundreds of commonly used Chinese medicines and their source plants.”

USEFUL STUFF

Larry Ferlazzo: This Week’s Free & Useful Artificial Intelligence Tools For The Classroom. “At least, for now, I’m going to make this a weekly feature which will highlight additions to THE BEST NEW – & FREE – ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TOOLS THAT COULD BE USED IN THE CLASSROOM.”

AROUND THE SEARCH AND SOCIAL MEDIA WORLD

KJZZ: Man rescued after car gets stuck on Strawberry Peak, a ‘shortcut’ Google recommended. ” stranded motorist was rescued after his car got stuck on the west side of Strawberry Peak. The 23-year-old called 911 just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday, as his Toyota Tercel had gotten stuck on a shortcut Google recommended between Springville and Vernal.”

Catholic News Agency: Spouse’s OnlyFans account factors into marriage nullification case. “Spanish family lawyer Enrique Sainz brought attention this week to a ruling handed down by a Church marriage tribunal in his country that decreed the annulment of a marriage in which the wife had an account on the OnlyFans platform.”

SECURITY & LEGAL

New York Times: Students Target Teachers in Group TikTok Attack, Shaking Their School. “Seventh and eighth graders in Malvern, Pa., impersonating their teachers posted disparaging, lewd, racist and hom*ophobic videos in the first known mass attack of its kind in the U.S.”

BBC: Scammed by the fake Chinese police. “Chinese people around the world are being targeted by an elaborate scam in which criminals pretend to be Chinese police. A British-Chinese woman has told the BBC that she handed over her life savings to con men who wore uniforms in video calls and gave her a virtual tour of what appeared to be a police station.”

Malay Mail: Cyberbullying: Fahmi to meet all social media platform providers this month. “Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil will meet with all social media platform providers in Malaysia at the end of this month to address the management of cyberbullying issues. He said the meeting was necessary as the Communications Ministry is unhappy with the commitment shown by platform providers in handling complaints related to this matter.”

RESEARCH & OPINION

The Conversation: Cultural heritage is often overlooked when assessing refugee claims. Here’s why this is a mistake. “The Rome Statute specifically protects cultural property from attacks during war. This includes sites dedicated to religion, education, art, science or charitable purposes, as well as historical monuments. Unlawful attacks on civilian objects that may constitute cultural property are also protected…. But when it comes to protection for refugees on the basis of cultural heritage – and taking into account cultural heritage loss specifically – there are very few pathways available.”

University of Waterloo: Less highlighting may mean more learning. “Researchers at Waterloo excel at creating new technologies, investigating human-technology interactions, and exploring how to mitigate harm. That’s why it’s no surprise that two computer scientists from Waterloo investigated whether technology controlling the number of words a user can highlight could affect their reading comprehension.”

Techdirt; Crawlers And Agents And Bots, Oh My: Time To Clarify Robots.txt . “Based on what we know today from press reports, it seems plausible to me that the fundamental issue at root here, i.e. what is driving Perplexity to dig its heels in, and where much of the reporting seems to cite as Perplexity’s fundamental ethical failing, is what counts as a ‘crawler’ for the purposes of robots.txt.” Good morning, internet…
