Facebook considers political ad limits after Twitter and Google take action
Facebook has encountered serious backlash for the way it’s chosen to go about dealing with political ads – in some cases allowing ones that purposefully told blatant lies. Zuckerberg has fallen back on the ‘free speech’ argument, implying it’s not the company’s role to dictate which ads run on the platform. Many aren’t buying it. Since recent attacks on Facebook, Snapchat has verified it will fact-checks ads while Google imposed strict limits on ad targeting, and Twitter banned political ads altogether. Now it appears Facebook is finally relenting. Well, a little bit anyway. According to a Wall Street Journal report, sources within the company say the social… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Facebook,Google,Twitter

Valve is bringing its Index VR headset to more countries
Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Right after announcing Half-Life: Alyx, already one of the most anticipated VR games of all time, Valve has confirmed plans to bring its Index headset and controllers to other countries, starting with Canada and Japan today. The $999 Index is already available in the US and Europe. Half-Life: Alyx won’t require a Valve Index, but the company’s own VR headset is likely to provide the most high-end experience available. It’s also unclear to what degree the game might be optimized for Valve’s Index controllers, which offer better individual finger sensing than most competitors. Half-Life: Alyx will be a free download for all Index owners, while people who buy the headset before the end of the year will get access to in-game cosmetic items... Continue reading…

An Australian koala hospital raised more than $1 million to help rescue native animals injured in the devastating wildfires roaring across the country
An Australian koala hospital on Friday raised over $1 million to rescue and treat koalas injured in Australia's devastating wildfires.  Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, an animal rehabilitation center located along the Australian coastline north of Sydney, created a GoFundMe page in October and far surpassed its initial fundraising goal of $25,000.  "From the comments received, everyone wants to see the survival of this special animal," the campaign's organizers wrote.  Bushfires in Australia are very common, particularly in the hotter spring and summer months, though scientists have said that Australia's fire season is beginning earlier and becoming more extreme as a result of climate change.

The 'Smooth Bernie' conspiracy theory, explained
We've had a year for conspiracy theories.  From the meme that spawned an alien-themed music festival just outside of Area 51 to suspicion surrounding Epstein's death, conspiracy theories have been at the forefront of internet culture. On Thursday, the hellish post-debate news cycle gave us Smooth Bernie.  Democratic candidates took to the debate stage for a fifth face-off on Wednesday night. Post-debate polling shows Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders both tied at the top, Emerson Polling reports.  But the real takeaway, according to conservative website The Washington Free Beacon, is that the Vermont senator looked "suspiciously smooth" during the debate. A Free Beacon article published Wednesday night questions whether Sanders went under the knife to get rid of his forehead wrinkles, pointing to a Getty photo taken during the debate that shows the 78-year-old with an unusually smooth brow.
