A fight against child pornography or control over the citizens?

The Moldovan government’s initiative to toughen control over the Internet and private online communication (the theme that has recently become particularly topical in Georgia, too), has stirred fierce debates in public.

The matter concerns the bill that is popularly referred to as the ‘Big Brother’ Law’. The latter vests the investigative agencies with the right to block websites, monitor personal emails, SMS, as well as Viber and WhatsApp messages – and all those measures aim to ensure efficient fight against child pornography and terrorism.

Official Chișinău is looking forward to the Venice Commission’s final conclusion on the aforesaid bill.

However, the experts ring the alarm bells, claiming that the bill is nothing but an attempt to impose censorship on the Internet.

Teen arrested in fight that injured Park High School staff

A 15-year-old Park High School student was arrested for assault and other charges for allegedly shoving, punching and biting school staff who had responded to a possible gang-related fight last week.

The Cottage Grove teen ran from Park staff and police after the Feb. 22 cafeteria fight, but stopped when he saw an officer brandish a stun gun, according to the police report.

An assistant principal and at least two other staff members reported suffering minor injuries as they tried to break up the fight and apprehend the aggressor. Park went into temporary lockdown during the incident as a safety precaution for students and staff, the report indicated, and staff tried to close the cafeteria to contain the fighting students.

To fight cyberbullying, ban cellphones from school

Two years ago, when Mayor de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña lifted the ban on cellphones in New York City public schools, they also instituted what they called a “Misuse It, You Lose It” policy to prevent cyberbullying — which has increased 351 percent in that time.

According to a Post analysis, there were 804 reported incidents in the 2015-16 school year, compared to 686 the prior year and 178 in 2013-14, the year before the cellphone ban was lifted. The most common types of incidents involve fat-shaming and harassment over race, gender and sexual orientation.

Some experts believe the spike in numbers is due to increased vigilance:

Twitter Adds New Tools to Fight Harassment

Social media is often a tool for bullying and hate speech.

The feature will hide abusive messages in cases where someone is specifically targeted. The social media platform is also adding new ways for users to flag “hateful content” like racist or sexist speech. Twitter staff have undergone training to better handle hate speech and other forms of harassment.

To Fight Zika Beyond Florida We Need Better Sex Education

In light of the recent news that Zika virus could stay in semen for more than six months ― twice as long as scientists previously though the virus could be detected ― it’s time for the United States to ramp up its focus on the major mechanism for Zika virus transmission after mosquitos: sex.

“For the public health community, Zika represents an unprecedented emergency,” Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association in August.

“Never before, to our knowledge, has a mosquito-borne virus been associated with human birth defects or been capable of sexual transmission,” Frieden wrote.
