Facebook has faced a lot of criticism over the years for failing to moderate hate speech. Its policies have come under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks thanks to the Stop Hate for Profit campaign. Started by civil rights groups in the US, the campaign has led to some of Facebook’s biggest customers pulling their ads from the social media platform for the month of July. As much as 99% of Facebook’s US$70.7 billion (£55 billion) in revenues come through advertising and the boycott initially resulted in an 8% knock to Facebook’s market value (amounting to US$72 billion).

The deadly coronavirus outbreak at California’s San Quentin prison is growing at a devastating pace. More than half of the people incarcerated there have been infected with Covid-19 as advocates and officials continue calls for governor Gavin Newsom to release more inmates.In late May, San Quentin prison had zero confirmed cases of coronavirus among its around 4,000 inmates. But after over 120 prisoners were transferred in from Chino, California — 25 of whom later tested positive for Covid-19 — an outbreak began. As of Wednesday, over 2,000 people incarcerated at San Quentin have been confirmed infected with coronavirus — including over 1,200 with active cases. Some 200 staff members have also gotten the virus. And 11 people have died so far, with the latest Covid-19 death reported on Wednesday. Meanwhile, only 36 of those infected have been released. After advocates and local officials called for the release of people incarcerated in state prisons, California’s Democratic governor announced last week that some 8,000 prisoners across the state would be let out over the next few weeks, prioritising people with high-risk health conditions and those with less than six months left in their sentences. It is unclear how many of those 8,000 will come out of San Quentin specifically. Since that announcement, dozens more prisoners have been infected there and four more have died. Newsom’s office did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment. Prisoners advocates and officialsrenewed calls this week for the governor to release more people incarcerated across the state. Statewide, there have been over 6,500 confirmed coronavirus cases among incarcerated people, and 37 have died so far. There are 1,372 people in cages at San Quentin positive for COVID. 10 people have died! Over 1/2 have been infected. Releasing 7% of the prison population isn’t enough. It will spread. People will keep getting sick and die @gavinnewsom please do more. #StopTheSpread#CareNotCagespic.twitter.com/vUgMUE8ftZ— Brendon Woods (@BrendonWoodsPD) July 14, 2020Brendan Woods, the public defender for Alameda County, across the bay from San Quentin prison, said Tuesday: “Releasing 7% of the prison population isn’t enough. It will spread. People will keep getting sick and die,” and called on Newsom to “please do more.”  State Senator Scott Wiener — who said the governor’s release announcement last week was “a solid step, but more work remains” — also tweeted Tuesday denouncing the growing outbreak at San Quentin, pointing to the state’s “disastrous mass incarceration policy.” “When you pack people into prisons, bad things happen,” said the state lawmaker out of San Francisco. “We must move quickly & decisively toward decarceration.” Earlier this month, 20 inmates at San Quentin went on a hunger strike to protest inhumane conditions there amid a pandemic, including dirty, cramped cells.The US continues to lead the world in Covid-19 cases, with more than 3.4 million confirmed cases and over 137,000 dead from the virus so far. California has seen an alarming increase in coronavirus cases in recent weeks, with more than 336,000 confirmed cases and more than 7,000 dead as of Tuesday. The state hit a seven-day average of over 8,200 new cases per day, according to the governor’s press conference Monday. Some of the country’s worst outbreaks have been in congregant settings, like nursing homes, meatpacking plants, warehouses and prisons.

A classic Porsche 911 Carrera 2 was stolen in Spain on Sunday, but a Tesla Model 3 parked nearby caught the entire incident on video.  The video was taken thanks to Tesla's Sentry Mode, which monitors for threats outside the vehicle and starts recording if it senses suspicious activity.  The Porsche was recovered the next day after someone recognized it from social media.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Tesla's Sentry Mode — which keeps a car's exterior cameras on standby while its owner is away — is meant to record break-ins, collisions, and any other potential threats to one's Model X, S, 3, or Y. But the feature can help thwart thefts of nearby non-EVs as well. In the Spanish town of Benicassim on Sunday, two people attempted to steal a 964-series Porsche 911 Carrera 2. But unbeknownst to them, the sports car was parked beside a Sentry Mode-enabled Tesla Model 3 that caught everything on tape. Automotive outlet Motorpasion first reported on the incident, followed by Autoblog, and Business Insider was able to confirm the details of the story via a police report provided by Jose Saez-Merino, a relative of the Porsche's owner. In a video of the theft circulated on social media by Saez-Merino, who owns the Model 3 that caught the scene, two people donning partial face masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic can be seen rolling the Porsche out of its parking spot and away into the night.  Porsche Carrera 2, matricula 2397DBK robado en Benicassim, Castellón, anoche a las 3:20 AM. Va a ser complicado, pero si alguien sabe algo o conoce a alguien en el video o fotos, mis DMs están abiertos. Gracias pic.twitter.com/o3RTDIxlFs — Jose Saez-Merino (@josejacas) July 12, 2020 Saez-Merino shared the video with local authorities and described the 911 at length on social media in an attempt to recover the car. Less than a day after Saez-Merino shared the video on Twitter, the 911 was found in a suburban area near Valencia, Saez-Merino told Business Insider. A delivery-van driver spotted the blue 911, recognized it from a Facebook post of a friend of the owner's, and called it in to the police. Saez-Merino suspects that those who stole the car dumped it deliberately to see if the car had a GPS tracker.  E N C O N T R A D O pic.twitter.com/87iZL3mlw8 — Jose Saez-Merino (@josejacas) July 13, 2020 Saez-Merino isn't sure how much of a role the Tesla's recording played in recovering the Porsche, but told Business Insider that it may help police catch the people who stole the car later down the line. The investigation into suspects is still ongoing, Saez-Merino said. SEE ALSO: A Ford Focus driver wound up with a nearly $1,000 ticket after being clocked at 437 mph by a faulty speed camera Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Here's what it's like to travel during the coronavirus outbreak

Collisions between bubbles or droplets suspended in liquid are more complex than previously thought.KAUST researchers have shown that conditions expected to promote coalescence can actually lead to the bubble or droplet pair bouncing right off of each other.The discovery could have implications for many applications involving colloidal systems of fluids that do not mix, immiscible fluids, including food products, such as oil-and-vinegar salad dressings, cosmetics and crude oil processing."However, in practical conditions, even trace contamination or added surfactant can immobilize the thin liquid film at the interface, making the phenomenon very challenging to investigate," says Ivan Vakarelski, a research scientist in Sigurdur Thoroddsen's lab.Thoroddsen, Vakarelski and their colleagues have now carried out bubble- and droplet-collision experiments in a fluid that can be produced in ultrapure form."We use a fluorocarbon liquid, which allowed us to accurately predict the effects of the interface mobility," Vakarelski says.

Apple has complete dominance in the smartwatch market with its Apple Watch.This is what emerges from the analysis conducted by Strategy Analytics, which sees the company reaching peaks never explored, with 47.9% market share.Only 2 percentage points are missing and the fateful half market share will be reached.It would mean that for every 2 smartwatches, one is branded Apple.In general, the data nevertheless offers a healthy picture for the market, with a 42% increase in shipments compared to last year, with Samsung leading the best year-on-year growth (73%).But there is another big name that seems to have a promising future, and it is Google.

The launch of this car, and its forthcoming derivatives, is a huge milestone for the company, one they liken to the introduction of other legendary models like the original Beetle and Golf."It's really the starting point of a system change from ICE (internal-combustion engines) to BEV (battery-electric vehicles) that is, let's say, mainly the base for our commitment starting to strive for a CO2-neutral future in the automotive industry."The Volkswagen Group is making a major push into the electric-vehicle space, and ID 3 is the tip of their spear.Helping keep that electron reservoir topped up, in Europe, VW is also making significant infrastructure investments.Ulbrich said the company "will install, until 2025, more than 30,000 charging points in our facilities [and] in our dealerships."With the new ID 3 and the easier ability to keep them juiced up he added, "I think there's a good chance that e-mobility now will be successful."
