Paris Gets Serious About Free Transit

You can’t fault Paris for ambition. After banning the most polluting vehicles from the city, pedestrianizing the Seine’s banks, and generally pushing the transformation of the French capital into one of the least car-centric major cities in Europe, Mayor Anne Hidalgo is preparing to go a step further—a very big step. The city is launching research into a plan to make the city’s public transit entirely free.

staff:

Greetings Tumblr, we have some important news for those of you who call Europe home.

In early 2012, the European Commission set out to better protect the data privacy rights of those citizens living in Europe. And on May 25, 2018, the culmination of those efforts, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), goes into effect.

More specifically, the GDPR gives you more control over your personal data, privacy, and consent.

We are also updating our TOS and Privacy Policy as part of our commitment to these new regulations.  

Starting on May 25, 2018, some users in Europe between the ages of 13 and 16 may no longer be able to access Tumblr. This ultimately depends on the age that your country has determined is appropriate for you to consent to the processing of your personal data. Read more about our rules on age here.

If you are a resident of the US, this does not apply to you. However, all Tumblr users, no matter where you live, will be able to access the Privacy Dashboard in the coming days. There you can view, manage, and download the data associated with your account. You can read more about it here.

Thanks

Excellent review of the Black Panther movie and how it fits into the history of black revolution, from Haiti to present day USA. 

761st Tank Battalion (United States) - Wikipedia

The 761st Tank Battalion was an independent tank battalion of the United States Army during World War II. The 761st was made up primarily of African-American soldiers, who by federal law were not permitted to serve alongside white troops; the military did not officially desegregate until after World War II. They were known as the “Black Panthers” after their unit’s distinctive insignia; their motto was “Come out fighting”. The battalion received a Presidential Unit Citation for its actions. In addition, a large number of individual members also received medals, including one Medal of Honor, 11 Silver Stars and about 300 Purple Hearts. They have been called “one of the most effective tank battalions in World War II”
