opinion Vera Eidelman Published 2:47 p.m. UTC Jul 26, 2018 Mark Zuckerberg made several newsworthy choices this week. One — to invoke Holocaust denial as an example of content that Facebook should keep up because “there are different things that different people get wrong” and “it’s hard to impugn [their] intent” — was ill-advised. But another — to keep Facebook from diving deeper into the business of censorship — was the right call. On Wednesday, Facebook announced a policy it put in place last month to remove misinformation that contributes to violence, following criticism that content published on the platform has led to attacks against minorities overseas. When pushed to go further and censor all offensive speech, Facebook refused. While many commentators are focusing legitimate criticism on Zuckerberg’s poor choice of words about Holocaust denial, others are calling for Facebook … [Read more...] about Opinion: Facebook right to not censor holocaust denial

Posted by James Detmer on 07.26.12 Ever noticed that nasty looking orange dust that takes over your rotors after a while of no driving, periods of humidity, or a rain storm? Your brakes are fine, but they’re rusting. In basic speak, rust is a form of corrosion (read more). Over time this rust can begin to etch and cause pitting in your rotors – not fun. Problem is you can’t really clean off the rotors with a cleaning product unless you take the wheels off, and even at that point you’d have to be awfully careful not to create problems for your brakes. Luckily there’s a free, easy, five minute way to remove rust from your rotors… Removing the rust is extremely simple: hit the brakes a few times at a low speed (5-10mph).

Also, consider that when you brake while driving … [Read more...] about Rust on Brake Rotors Is Easy to Remove
