* CA tech: A report that has surfaced today claims that social media platform Twitter has been developing algorithms to suppress viewpoints. Interviews and quotes from Twitter engineers and former employees reveal that this technology is being developed almost specifically to target and silence conservative viewpoints, especially pro-Trump messages. Part of the technology is called “shadow banning” which does not let the user know they have been banned but prevents anyone from seeing their content so the user just thinks that no one is engaging them. It also came forward that people that were “content managers” had the freedom to ban based on ideology, not written rules. In fact many of the people interviewed admitted that these rules were not written but said. (Editorial) This is censorship, some of the most egregious that has been reported thus far. I don’t care about the political affiliation, for social media companies (because you know this will not be the only one) to create and follow a culture that believes that this is anywhere close to acceptable in our society, shows that they do not believe in “The American Way”.

The reason for the Mexican States was stated as their being hotspots for drug cartel activities and murders. The five states are: Tamaulipas, Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerroro. This is nothing new as the State Department has released warnings over the last couple of years in regards to dangerous areas of Mexico due to cartel violence. -Warnings/ Advisories (NOAA) * Beach hazards Statement: A long period northwest swell will move through the coastal waters into tonight - The National Weather Service in San Francisco has issued a Beach Hazards Statement for large shore break, dangerous rip currents, and sneaker waves which is in effect until 8 PM PST this evening. - Coastal North Bay Including Point Reyes National Seashore; Northern Monterey Bay; San Francisco; San Francisco Peninsula Coast; Southern Monterey Bay and Big Sur Coast * Dense Fog Advisory: East-Central San Joaquin Valley; Southeastern San Joaquin Valley; Southwestern San Joaquin Valley; West-Central San Joaquin Valley * Wind Advisory: Modoc County -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0722hrs.
