Facebook incorrectly removes picture of Aboriginal men in chains because of ‘nudity’

“… Facebook also blocks users from sharing Guardian Australia’s story based on its use of the image. […] Facebook incorrectly removed a post critical of the prime minister’s comments regarding slavery in Australia that featured a photograph of Aboriginal men in neck chains from the late 1800s, claiming the photo featured nudity.
On Thursday, Scott Morrison said that there was no slavery in this country.
On Friday he backed down from those comments and acknowledged the history of #blackbirding in Australia – where people were coerced into working as indentured labourers, often through deception or force. He said his Thursday comments related to the principles that existed when the colony of New South Wales was founded – that there was to be no lawful slavery in Australia. …”

DuMont TV Network

…The DuMont Television Network, also known as the DuMont Network, DuMont, Du Mont, or (incorrectly) Dumont[a] (pronounced /duːmânt/) was one of the world’s pioneer commercial television networks, rivalling NBC for the distinction of being first overall. It began operation in the United States in 1946.[1] It was owned by DuMont Laboratories, a television equipment and set manufacturer. The network was hindered by the prohibitive cost of broadcasting, by Federal Communications Commission regulations which restricted the company’s growth, and even by the company’s partner, Paramount Pictures. Despite several innovations in broadcasting and the creation of one of television’s biggest stars of the 1950s, the network never found itself on solid financial ground. Forced to expand on UHF channels during an era when UHF was not profitable, DuMont ceased broadcasting in 1956. …”

Mask-less Drugstore Prescription Delivery Driver Apology: Yellowknife, NWT 🇨🇦

At first I did not know what the mask-less driver
and his mask-less passenger were delivering
all around Yellowknife
It was
PRESCRIPTIONS
to
VULNERABLE PATIENTS in Yellowknife !
I’m so sorry and want to apologize to the
mask-less drugstore delivery driver and mask-less assistant
for questioning there following of
WSCC and / NWT COVID-19 rules

So I don’t know who the
mask-less drugstore prescription driver is.

If you do, please tell him I apologize…
I was only trying to stay alive
in the days of CORONA-19.

Convoy in Loving Memory of Leslie John Rocher, Old Town, Yellowknife NWT.

Les Rocher, titan of YK property development, passes away “… It’s a tough loss for Yellowknife. He really did so much. “Les has been so important to Yellowknife,” Mayor Rebecca Alty said.
Councillor Niels Konge, another of Yellowknife’s construction leaders, said: “I don’t think there’s any single, one person who fully understands the scope of his contribution.”

‘Northern icon’: Yellowknife remembers Les Rocher Apr 27, 2020
“…Legendary Yellowknife real estate and property developer Les Rocher is being remembered as “northern icon.”
Rocher died Thursday just two days after his 63rd birthday.
Over his decades in the North, Rocher owned swathes of land and property across Yellowknife: shacks and cabins in the city’s Old Town neighbourhood, a modular-home subdivision on Kam Lake, several downtown buildings and even a few old barges.
In a Facebook post, N.W.T. Premier Caroline Cochrane described Rocher as a “northern icon” who will be remembered by many for his work ethic, no-nonsense attitude and his drives around town with his little dog sitting in the front seat….”
