Dear Mr Zuckerberg:your post Monday on Facebook celebrating 15 years of helping people connect with others through a series of frames on a blue background. Let me add my name to the list of those who are impressed with what you have built. Driven by a set of ideals and some clever code, you steadily built a money machine that has also accumulated remarkable influence around the world. I urge people to consider these numbers when pondering the power of Facebook: 2.3 billion users writing in more than 100 languages; almost $17bn in revenue in just the fourth quarter of 2018; almost $59bn in revenue for all of 2018; a market capitalization of $484bn in January 2019. You built all of this in a mere 15 years. Those are stunning numbers, and they speak to the talents of you and your employees. That’s why I’m struck by your Facebook post. You seem not to acknowledge how much power you have accumulated, nor the extent to which you represent a club of billionaires and companies that … [Read more...] about Dear Mr Zuckerberg: the problem isn’t the internet, it’s Facebook
About dear mr president
Joe Biden took another hit at Donald Trump Wednesday, demanding he 'shut up' until he releases his tax returns and proves he has no conflicts of interest. Trump insists it's his duty to put an end to corruption – an excuse he used to explain his call with his Ukrainian counterpart where he urged him to probe Biden and his son Hunter's business dealings in the country. 'Mr. President, you want to talk about corruption. I've release 21-years of my tax returns,' Biden said during an event in Columbus, Ohio. 'Mr. President, even Richard Nixon released his tax returns. Mr. President, release your tax returns or shut up.' Biden made a campaign stop at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Electrical Trade Center on Wednesday afternoon – the day after the fourth Democratic primary debates, which were held in the northeast Columbus suburb of Westerville, Ohio. 'I entered as one of the poorest men in Congress, left one of the poorest men in government – in … [Read more...] about ‘Mr. President, release your tax returns or SHUT UP!’ Joe Biden unveils new message as he fights back against Donald Trump’s accusations of corruption in Ukraine
Defeating ISIS was one of Donald Trump’s main campaign pledges during the 2016 election race. At the time, the terror group was America’s public enemy No1 - marauding around the Middle East with apparent impunity, killing US forces and committing despicable atrocities like burning pilots alive in cages and throwing gay people off roofs. Candidate Trump repeatedly vowed to ‘bomb the hell’ out of ISIS and beat them into submission. His words resonated powerfully around the world, especially in countries like Britain and France where ISIS were carrying out appalling acts of violence on civilians. And to a large extent, President Trump kept his word. Candidate Trump repeatedly vowed to ‘bomb the hell’ out of ISIS and beat them into submission. To a large extent, President Trump kept his word.

Donald Trump vented his frustration in a late-night Twitter rant after a day that saw a number of usually loyal Republicans join Democrats to condemn him for withdrawing American troops from northern Syria. The troop withdrawal has been widely condemned for leaving America's former Kurdish allies at the mercy of an assault by Turkey. 'I am the only person who can fight for the safety of our troops & bring them home from the ridiculous & costly Endless Wars, and be scorned. Democrats always liked that position, until I took it. Democrats always liked Walls, until I built them. Do you see what's happening here?' The tweets served as the culmination of a bruising day for the President. During a meeting on Wednesday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told reporters at the White House she thought the president was shaken by a vote in the House of Representatives that saw the President lose support over the Syrian situation. President Trump ended up having a bruising day … [Read more...] about President Trump accuses the Democrats of being hypocrites for opposing his withdrawal of troops from Syria in late-night twitter tantrum
Well, I hate to say this, but Miriam Clegg might be a bit sensitive. The wife of our former Deputy Prime Minister has gone off the deep end on social media after being invited to an event to mark International Women’s Day — in her married name. The lawyer, known professionally as Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, posted on Instagram the offending missive with its handwritten ‘Dear Mrs Clegg’, and added a withering caption bemoaning the ‘irony’ that the event was a celebration of ‘women’s success’. It was clearly a mistake on the part of the organisers, but did she need to be so cross and make such a fuss? Well, I hate to say this, but Miriam Clegg might be a bit sensitive.
