  • Although we have found the largest allies component, we can observe that many of the characters in the component are actually enemies (red relationships).
  • In this example, Thanos is an enemy with Gamora, Magus, and Captain Marvel but is still a member of the same allied component.

Kentucky governor calls on AG to release 'everything' from Breonna Taylor grand jury

  • The call came after a second anonymous grand juror issued a statement saying the panel was not given an opportunity to consider homicide charges in the case against police officers who served a no-knock warrant at Taylor's home the night she was killed.
  • The judge ruled this week that the grand jurors may speak publicly about the case presented by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
  • The second panel member said the jury was only allowed to consider three wanton endangerment charges against one officer.
  • Cameron, in a statement posted on Twitter earlier this week, said he will not appeal the decision allowing grand jurors to speak.
  • The attorney general has acknowledged wanton endangerment was the only charge his prosecutors recommended to the grand jury.
  • Cameron led the investigation into the police killing and presented evidence in the case to a Jefferson County grand jury over two-and-a-half days.

University of Texas band won't play its alma mater because it was once performed at minstrel shows

  • Earlier this month, the band's director asked its members to fill out an internal survey asking whether they would be willing to play "The Eyes of Texas" at a football game this Saturday.
  • What's the history behind this song?
  • It's an understatement to say that the song's history is closely connected to the school.
  • The song has been played before and after every single one of the university's sporting events since it was written in 1903.
  • The song was reportedly first performed at the Hancock Opera House by blackface White singers at a minstrel show fundraiser for the university's athletics department in the 1900s.
  • Over the summer, student-athletes released a joint statement, shared on Twitter, saying that they will not participate in recruitment or donor-related events if the university didn't comply with certain demands.

US and 6 allies pressure tech companies to weaken encryption - Business Insider

  • The US and six of its allies are calling on big tech companies to weaken encryption in order to make it easier for law enforcement to break into messaging apps like iMessage or WhatsApp. Officials from the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and India joined US Attorney General William Barr to issue an international statement last week criticizing tech companies that currently offer end-to-end encryption.
  • Barr has been pressuring tech companies to weaken encryption for years, arguing that end-to-end encryption makes it harder for law enforcement to track down criminals.
  • That means nobody — including law enforcement or even the companies that own the apps — can access the messages without obtaining a users' device and logging in.
  • Last year, all of the same countries except Japan and India issued a similar statement calling on tech companies to create backdoors.

US State Department condemns attack on civilians in town north of Baghdad

  • The admonition comes after a similar State Department statement Saturday condemning "the attack on the Kurdistan Democratic Party's branch office in Baghdad by Iran-backed elements of the Popular Mobilization Forces" and as the Trump administration has warned it could shutter its embassy in Baghdad if the Iraqi government fails to stymie the attacks on diplomatic facilities by Iranian-backed forces.
  • According to local security forces in Salah al-Din, on Friday a group of armed men believed from an Iran-backed Hashad al-Shabbi paramilitary force in charge of the security in the area snatched 12 men from the predominately Sunni town of al-Farhatah, about 70 miles north of Baghdad.
  • Following the destruction of the Kurdistan Democratic Party headquarters in Baghdad, al-Kadhimi held an emergency security meeting in which he called for an investigation into the conduct of Iraqi security forces, which failed to prevent the burning of the facility.
