Updates and On the Horizon – January 21, 2019…


Date: January 21, 2019

WordPress has been doing a lot of behind the scenes work, and making changes…which means this blog can get a bit glitchy, sometimes…Keep this in mind, if you regularly leave comments on this blog…It pays to copy your comments to the clipboard, prior to hitting that submit button…Make sure you see a confirmation, that your comment is awaiting approval, before you move on…WordPress has been known to lose peoples comments, sometimes…and your comments are important to me.

I’ve finally given the EQF Tools Page some much needed attention…Let me know what you think.

It’s been a little while ago, but I’ve also had an update on the EQF Community Links page.

The IBLD website has had it’s “next observance” dates updated.

I’m going to actually get off my arse, and start using the “Recent Updates: (The EQF Bulletin)” feature, at the top of this blog…It’s been idle, with only a test audio file, ever since I set it up…The down side, is that you will likely get a voice synthesizer…The up side, is that you’ll get a quick heads up, on the recent changes and updates related to the EQF and Our Love Frontier.

Oh!…and the WordPress incarnation of Our Love Frontier turns six years old, on January 29th, 2019!

Beyond that…I’m working on a project…video game related, and total fluff…But I find it amusing…Progress is kind of slow…I have to figure out a thing or two…But, it should be fun…for me, anyway…The rest of you might think I’m just a total dork for doing it…I don’t know…

…That’s on the horizon.

01) Techdirt Podcast Episode 195: The EU Endangers Free Speech Online… Again

“The latest in the EU’s string of internet regulatory efforts has a new target: terrorist propaganda. Just as with past regulations, the proposed rules seem onerous and insane, creating huge liability for internet platforms that fail to do the impossible. This week, we’re joined by returning guests Daphne Keller from Stanford’s Center For Internet And Society and Emma Llansó from the Center for Democracy and Technology to discuss this most recent danger to online free speech in the EU.”

An innocent man was forced to register as a sex offender for decades. What does N.J. owe him?…

01) An innocent man was forced to register as a sex offender for decades. What does N.J. owe him?

“Under state law, those exonerated from crimes they did not commit can sue the state to recoup money for time they spent locked up.

But what’s the current price tag on years of lost job opportunities, estranged family and the stigma of being labeled a sexual predator?

Not a dime.

Now advocates say they’re planning a full-court press to get New Jersey lawmakers to close gaps in how the state compensates victims of wrongful convictions.

A bill before the state Legislature (A1037), introduced last year but still awaiting a vote, would expand access to compensation for those who spent years on sex offender registries or on probation or parole for crimes they didn’t commit.”
