  • Twitter Will Temporarily Place Some Limitations On Retweets To Fight Misinformation

    These days it is incredibly easy to reshare, retweet, or forward a message. The problem with that is that sometimes the information we’re resharing, retweeting, or forwarding could contain false or wrong information, which could then lead to speculation, rumors, and to a certain extent, unrest.

    Now that the elections are nearly upon us, Twitter is hoping to do their part in combating misinformation leading up to the elections, and one of the things they plan to do is place some limitations and restrictions on retweets. According to Twitter, whenever a user tries to retweet a post, they are encouraged to add a comment to give the post more context instead of just blindly retweeting it.

  • Covid is Strengthening the Push for Indigenous Data Control

    This story originally appeared on High Country News and is part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

    As US government scientists work to understand how Covid-19 affects the human body, tribal nations are still struggling with the impacts of the federal government’s inadequate response to the pandemic. Now, through a National Institutes of Health program called “All of Us,” tribal nations across Indian Country are pushing federal scientists to conduct disease research that serves Indigenous peoples in a meaningful way.

  • Launch of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission delayed until November

    NASA has delayed the launch of the SpaceX Crew-1 mission until early- to mid-November, the agency announced Saturday. The mission eventually will bring three NASA astronauts and an astronaut from Japan’s JAXA space agency to the International Space Station.

    Originally scheduled for October 31st, the planned six-month mission was delayed to allow time to resolve issues with the first-stage engine gas generators on the Falcon 9 rocket, NASA said in a statement. When it does launch, American astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker, plus Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi will be aboard SpaceX’s first operational crewed mission to the ISS.

    Crew-1 is among six planned missions SpaceX plans to send to the ISS under a contract with NASA, awarded in 2014 as part of the Commercial Crew Program that brought private sector companies into the US space program.

  • Don’t Expect Fortnite Back In The App Store Until 2021 At The Earliest

    As many of you have heard, Apple and Epic are in an epic (pun intended) legal battle over Fortnite Battle Royale. Epic had filed for a preliminary injunction against Apple’s removal of the app in the App Store, but it looks like Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers has denied their request for it.

    What this means is that if you were hoping to see Fortnite return to the App Store, you might have to wait until 2021 at the earliest. This is because a court date for the trial is set for May 2021, and assuming things don’t get dragged out further, 2021 is the earliest that we will see Fortnite return to the App Store, if at all.

    It is possible that Apple and Epic could reach some kind of agreement from now until then, but that remains to be seen. However, Epic’s lawsuit against Apple has opened a can
