Instead, corporations are still shipping jobs overseas, and to add insult to injury, many of these companies are forcing their American workers to train their foreign replacements. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains what's happening. https://trofire.com/2020/01/05/corporations-forcing-workers-to-train-their-foreign-replacements/ -- Bill Horne Telecom Digest Moderator ------------------------------ Message-ID: <5E10DCB6.5080702@panix.com> Date: 4 Jan 2020 13:43:02 -0500 From: "David" <wb8foz@remove-this.panix.com> Subject: More Teletype trivia AP always required: Carriage Return Line Feed Letters at the end of each line; this insured that even when the receiving machine falsely jumped into Figures during the carriage return glich, it would be reset into Letters for the new line. UPI was not that rigorous, and you'd get lines like 5#3178(?492, instead of letters. This occurred often enough that senior UPI editors would sightread it as letters without a pause. ***** Moderator's Note ***** I always thought that the extra "rubout" after the CR/LF was to give older machine a little extra time to swing the type basket all the way to the left. This would compensate for old springs, a dashpot with too little space on the air outlet, or just general gunk, dried grease, etc. Bill Horne Moderator ------------------------------ Message-ID: <A34A1FE7-1BB4-434F-8DA4-3EE4FA6DCD41@roscom.com> Date: 4 Jan 2020 13:35:45 -0500 From: "Monty Solomon" <monty@roscom.com> Subject: Fresh Cambridge Analytica leak 'shows global manipulation is out of control' Company's work in 68 countries laid bare with release of more than 100,000 documents By Carole Cadwalladr An explosive leak of tens of thousands of documents from the defunct data firm Cambridge Analytica is set to expose the inner workings of the company that collapsed after the Observer revealed it had misappropriated 87 million Facebook profiles. More than 100,000 documents relating to work in 68 countries that will lay bare the global infrastructure of an operation used to manipulate voters on "an industrial scale" are set to be released over the next months. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jan/04/cambridge-analytica-data-leak-global-election-manipulation ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Mon, 06 Jan 2020
