Social Media Use in 2021

Despite a string of controversies and the public’s relatively negative sentiments about aspects of social media, roughly seven-in-ten Americans say they ever use any kind of social media site – a share that has remained relatively stable over the past five years, according to a new Pew Research Center survey of U.S. adults.

Beyond the general question of overall social media use, the survey also covers use of individual sites and apps. YouTube and Facebook continue to dominate the online landscape, with 81% and 69%, respectively, reporting ever using these sites. And YouTube and Reddit were the only two platforms measured that saw statistically significant growth since 2019, when the Center last polled on this topic via a phone survey.

When it comes to the other platforms in the survey, 40% of adults say they ever use Instagram and about three-in-ten report using Pinterest or LinkedIn. One-quarter say they use Snapchat, and similar shares report being users of Twitter or WhatsApp. TikTok – an app for sharing short videos – is used by 21% of Americans, while 13% say they use the neighborhood-focused platform Nextdoor.

Check out this reporting from Tucson, reporter fact checked nothing.

Business struggles to stay staffed: ‘I am losing employees to the state of Arizona because they are offering something that I cannot’

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) -Even as Arizona fully reopens, some employers are having a hard time hiring.

The calls keep coming in at Avid Home Care near Prince Road and I-10. Seniors and those living with disabilities are seeking caregivers to help them stay in their homes, however, help is limited.

“We’ve continued to get more calls during the pandemic, we are protecting the most vulnerable population from this virus,” said owner Vanessa McCally. “I turned two people down today. I had to say no because I didn’t have enough people to help them.”

McCally opened Avid Home Care six years ago. The family-run business typically employs about 50 people, but now, they are down to 21 workers.

It’s not a competition, I am losing employees to the state of Arizona because they are offering something that I cannot,” McCally said. “We were short on caregivers already, this was a blow we did not need.”

..

In her first five years of business, McCally says three people filed for unemployment, but none of them paid out. This past year, McCally says she has had 27 claims and all received unemployment benefits.

AZ DES said they don't give benefits to people who quit, so this person fired 27 people without cause and is complaining that they are receiving unemployment benefits.

Did she apply for a PPP loan? We don't know because the "reporter" didn't ask.

Did the "reporter" ask for verification that the owners somehow burned thru 27 employees in a single year? We don't know.

What's the employers UI rating? We don't know.

This station should be embarrassed at this quality of reporting, but they don't care obviously, they want to promote right wing talking points.

Don Lemon made an odd statement about Jesus.

Jesus was a Jew who looked like his dark skinned middle Eastern Jewish neighbors.

Cults provide clarity. People join cults because they believe they’re being offered solid, absolute answers for questions such as good vs. evil, religion, the meaning of life, politics, etc. Many cult leaders promote messages that are simple and seem to make sense, the exact opposite of what we’re often provided with in typical, everyday life. Cult leaders make promises that are totally unattainable, but not offered by any other group in society.

Germans loved Hitler, its something of a myth that he had to convince anyone to commit genocide, because the German people were willing participants.

That's a red herring

I could counter with another metric like percapita emissions/percapita gdp, which would show that we produce vastly more goods and services with our emissions vs China et al.

Consumption emissions sounds a bit like the notion of victim blaming. Instead of requiring China et al to install air scrubbers in their factories, let's tell little Johnny he can't have that lego set because he's killing the planet.

Im not sure why this need to be said, but international companies moved production to third world countries in order to enrich themselves further because of the lack of relevant regulations. The consumer DID NOT DO THAT.

Regardless, the planet, oceans, forests and critters don't care about a talmudic analysis of how to properly assign responsibility for pollution, this is one of those times where the simplest approach will be the most efficacious, it's long past time for developing countries to take responsibility for their pollution, and not blame consumers, population differences or whatever else.

Eta:

John Kerry

Mr. President-elect, you've put forward a bold transformative climate plan. But you've also underscored that no country alone can solve this challenge. Even the United States, for all of our industrial strength, is responsible for only 13% of global emissions. To end this crisis, the whole world must come together. You're right to rejoin Paris on day one, and you're right to recognize that Paris alone is not enough," Kerry said at the event, referring to the landmark Paris climate agreement.

"At the global meeting in Glasgow one year from now, all nations must raise ambition together or we will all fail together," he continued. "And failure is not an option."
