CDC gets list of forbidden words: fetus, transgender, diversity
The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in any official documents being prepared for next year’s budget.

Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

Bob Lutz on the Future of the Automobile, Uber and Lyft Ban Rider, Twitter's Verification Mess (Stratechery Daily Update 2017-11-16)
More broadly, it is hard to escape the sense of a perfect storm forming: the left, already more politically inclined to favor regulation, is increasingly pushing tech companies to exercise their power; the tech companies will be especially vulnerable to this push because it will come internally, not just externally. That internal reality, though, means that policies that “make us proud”, to use Twitter’s words, are going to be perceived as biased by the right — the same right that would be more politically inclined to defend the prerogative of private corporations, unless, of course, they feel discriminated against.

Why China’s Internet Censorship Model Will Prevail Over Russia’s
Both China and Russia censor the internet extensively, but in different ways. China's technological censorship mechanisms can do much of the work in an automated fashion, while in Russia you're more likely to get a knock on the door from the KGB in the middle night should you publish content that Putin finds undesirable. China's approach is more effective - and spreading globally, writes scholar Valentin Weber for the Council on Foreign Relations: "The future of an ever more balkanised internet, marked by national firewalls, censorship, and surveillance may be more Chinese than Russian. China’s information controls model may serve as an attractive example given that, contrary to exhortations from Western and donor governments, rapid economic growth does not suffer from pervasive information controls. Beijing seems to have found a recipe for a successful censorship model based on technology that is being readily adopted. This does not only pose a challenge to the Russian information controls model, but to an open and interoperable internet more broadly."

Russia Blocks Khodorkovsky's Open Russia Website
"Russia’s media watchdog Roskomnadzor has added the website of the Open Russia political movement, founded by exiled oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, to its registry of blocked sites.

The pro-democracy NGO was blacklisted by Russia’s Prosecutor General in April as an “undesirable organization.” After a law passed in 2015, groups handed the label are immediately banned and its employees face prison terms.

'Their activities are aimed at inciting protests and destabilizing domestic political situation, presenting a threat to Russia's constitutional foundations and the security of the state,' the Prosecutor General said after Open Russia's blacklisting in April.

Open Russia responded to the news Tuesday saying the group could 'not be silenced.'" - Moscow Times. Read Mikhail Khodorkovsky's response to the shutdown here: https://www.khodorkovsky.com/mikhail-khodorkovsky-russian-attorney-generals-office-gross-human-rights-abuser/
