Last month the Berlin government announced that due to the UK’s decision to leave the EU at midnight on March 29th this year, British citizens will “in future require a residency title or some other proof of their right of residency” in order to live in Germany. British residents in Berlin are therefore being asked to submit their details in an online form, which authorities released on Thursday, to confirm their status as a resident in Germany. The move has been described as “contentious" by the British in Germany (BiG) campaign group, which says it’s important to remember that Brits still have EU citizens’ rights until the leaving date.

And in Hamilton County, former employees have done just that, and received settlements, in two high-profile cases in recent years. "It's a powerful section of constitutional law, and if [government entities] don't follow the process properly, you can get in some legal trouble," said Chattanooga attorney Robin Flores, who … [Read more...] about What is due process?

Sometimes it may be a threat. And with only a few seconds to spare, Facebook moderators have to make the call — even if the text that accompanies the laughing yellow face is in an unfamiliar language. To help with those decisions, Facebook has created a list of guidelines for what its two billion users should be allowed to say. The rules, which are regularly updated, are then given to its moderators. For Facebook, the goal is clarity. But for the thousands of moderators across the world, faced with navigating this byzantine maze of rules as they monitor billions of posts per day in over 100 languages, clarity is hard to come by. Facebook keeps its rulebooks and … [Read more...] about 5 Takeaways From Facebook’s Leaked Moderation Documents
