01) Google vs DuckDuckGo – Search engine manipulation, censorship and why you should switch


“Ultimate comparison between DuckDuckGo and Google is here listing all the reasons why you should switch from Google Search to DuckDuckGo.

Because search engines are second gate-keepers to the internet, it’s absolutely crucial to choose the one that will respect your privacy and provide uncensored and unfiltered search results. Google’s search neutrality has been compromised. Google notoriously develops more and more of its own tools that it then puts in front of organic search results.

DuckDuckGo’s business model is the greatest advantage over Google Search. DuckDuckGo doesn’t have a filter bubble. Its search results are derived from over 400 sources, that include big search engines like Bing or Yahoo, but also DuckDuckGo’s own web crawlers. Its organic results aren’t intervened by personalized filters, because DuckDuckGo doesn’t maintain a personal profile on you like Google does.”

01) Protesting the Make America Straight Again Conference


“The Make America Straight Again Conference held by the New Independent Fundamental Baptists (NIFB) – a hate group that advocates for the death of LGBT members was in Orlando, Florida last weekend. Their conference was held during pride month on the anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting. This is a recap of our peaceful protest of the NIFB’s MASA conference.

Pastor Steven Anderson, Tommy McMurtry, Patrick Boyle, Bruce Mejia and Roger Jimenez were a few of the homophobic pastors advocating for the death of gay people. We stood in firm opposition, countering their message of hate with one of love.

01) What is a Nervous Breakdown? – Is it a mental disorder?


“This video answers the question: What is a nervous breakdown? Does the construct of a nervous breakdown have diagnostic value? The term nervous breakdown is used in the popular culture and is considered a colloquial. Most mental health counselors do not interpret the term as having any diagnostic value, however, a study looking at this term found that it does align with several technical terms and mental disorders used by clinicians.
