If you or someone you know is in Greek Life at the University of Arizona, then you have probably heard of GreekRank. It’s a website dedicated to ranking and commenting on different sororities and fraternities on campus. I guarantee you that the site is as horrible as it sounds. The toxic content that permeates through the message boards and sorority and fraternity pages is abhorrent and does not accurately represent the inclusivity of Greek Life at the UA. GreekRank thrives on anonymity — anonymity that breeds the downright mean material that’s so prevalent on the site. The only way one can accurately describe the nature of the content that is found on the site is to go through the process of making a comment on a sorority or fraternity’s page. The first question you are asked is about the reputation of that house; whether they are good looking, smart, party animals, athletic or wealthy. According to GreekRank this is what matters the most in a Greek organization. After the … [Read more...] about OPINION: GreekRank is a toxic hellscape of objectification

By Brian X. Chen, The New York Times Company If we had a choice, would any of us want to be tracked online for the sake of seeing more relevant digital ads? We are about to find out. On Monday, Apple released iOS 14.5, one of its most anticipated software updates for iPhones and iPads in years. It includes App Tracking Transparency, a new privacy tool that could give us more control over how our data is shared. Here’s how it works: When an app wants to follow our activities to share information with third parties such as advertisers, a window will appear on our Apple device to ask for our permission to do so. If we say no, the app must stop monitoring and sharing our data. A pop-up window may sound like a minor design tweak, but it has thrown the online advertising industry into upheaval. Most notably, Facebook has gone on the warpath. Last year, the social network created a website and took out full-page ads in newspapers denouncing Apple’s privacy feature as harmful … [Read more...] about To be tracked or not?

A banner hung on the railings outside Anfield bearing a pointed message to Liverpool’s American ownership: “Shame on you. RIP LFC 1892-2021.” Liverpool’s players arrived for an English Premier League match at Leeds United’s Elland Road a few hours later, to the backdrop of jeers and abusive chants by fans gathered outside the stadium.

Anger and rising discontent swept through the European game on Monday following the announcement that Liverpool and 11 more of the world’s biggest soccer clubs formed a breakaway group to establish a controversial Super League, a closed competition that would effectively replace the Champions League. Some of the fiercest reaction to the proposals came from fans of the breakaway clubs themselves. “We feel we can no longer give our support to a club which puts financial … [Read more...] about Anger swells as fans, teams react to Super League proposals

(CNN) On Wednesday, Facebook's oversight board upheld the company's January 7 decision to disable former President Donald Trump's account in the aftermath of a deadly riot at the nation's Capitol -- but threw the decision back to Facebook on how long the ban should last. The board gave Facebook six months to decide how long the punishment will apply. Kara Alaimo There's only one justifiable verdict that Facebook can reach: Trump should be banned from Facebook -- and Instagram, which the company also owns -- … [Read more...] about The only decision Facebook should make on Trump
