This article is part of Privacy in the Pandemic, a Future Tense series. -- Big Tech's contact tracing initiative complicates the narrative of European governments protecting citizens against Silicon Valley's privacy intrusions.

In debates over digital privacy, American tech companies are often branded as the villains, with European policymakers cast in the role of savior. Big Tech is out to steal your privacy, but European governments are stepping in to protect it. Or so the narrative goes. But the new exposure notification system released by Google and Apple on Wednesday has turned these roles on their head, albeit in ways that at least some public health authorities say will make their job more difficult. It stands as a clear warning against type casting in this debate.

So, the big news this week is that Apple and Google have launched their watered down "contact-tracing" platforms into the world. Only "contact-tracing" has now become "exposure notification..."

...and judging by all the evidence to-date, they're not going to be effective enough to make a difference. Worse, they introduce a set of dangerous security risks that have not been addressed. False hopes, false starts. Let's clear something up from the start. Contact-tracing is not an opt-in Bluetooth app that might register your proximity to an infected person, under a very limited set of circumstances, including that you're both fully running the app. No, contact tracing is a manually-intensive, surveillance-heavy, privacy-intrusive process where a combination of brute-force measures and meticulous attention to detail, under the purview of well-trained operatives, roots out the spread of infection.

Operation Highjump, officially titled The United States Navy Antarctic Developments Program, was a United States Navy operation organized by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Jr.,

Although Byrd was chosen to lead the mission for a rather specific reason, which I will later explain, he was quite qualified and a favorite amongst the American public-the perfect candidate of choice by U.S. Navy and Top Brass. Additionally to Byrd's recruitment another man, Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen, was selected to head-up the task force. And make no mistake, this was an unusually bold move for the American military at the time as people, nations, and even world economies were still volatile from war's aftermath.

Thirty-three percent of high school seniors say they would defer or cancel an admittance rather than attend an all-online college. Plus results from other surveys of students and parents.

Ninety-five percent said that they would honor commitments made to colleges that plan to reopen in the fall with social distancing measures in place. But the survey also indicated that the later an institution announces its policy, the more apprehension students will have about it. The California State University system announced this month that most classes in the fall would be online. But many other colleges -- including such prominent institutions as the University of Texas at Austin -- are planning for in-person classes in the fall. Both approaches are being criticized by some -- Cal State for being too fearful of what might happen and the campuses that are opening for taking a big risk with student and employee health.

Justice Samuel Alito this week ordered the Pennsylvania government to respond to arguments from a variety of Pennsylvanians asking the Supreme Court to halt enforcement of Gov. Tom Wolf's strict stay-at-home order, aimed at fighting the coronavirus.

The group of petitioners from Pennsylvania includes Danny DeVito, a candidate for the state House of Representatives, who says the order keeps him from accessing his campaign office whereas his incumbent opponent can access her office. There is also a golf course that claims it is losing revenue because it is not able to open thanks to Wolf's order and a real estate agent who says she is unable to work because her business was put on a list of "non-life-sustaining" businesses.

The time has come to open America back up. And if a state blocks its citizens' efforts to open back up, they should rebel, peacefully.

Americans are dutybound to push back when our government ceases to faithfully reflect our values or enacts policies that hurt the country. If other citizens disagree and push back twice as hard, they might win the argument. But our right to gather in protest is sacrosanct. In other words, what I said at the virtual townhall - and what tens of thousands of protesters are doing - should not have been controversial. We're Americans. Of course, we're going to protest what we perceive as tyranny.

Some students are deciding if it is financially prudent to temporarily, or permanently, drop out of college as coronavirus has moved classes online.

Colleges around the world have closed their doors and moved their classes online to stem the spread of coronavirus. An overwhelming majority of students agree with public health officials that canceling in-person classes is an important part of social distancing and containing the virus, but that doesn't mean they are prepared to invest the same amount of time and money on a different educational experience.

Shelby Twp, MI -- A medical clinic in Michigan was raided this month because they were giving essential workers high dose vitamin C IVs, some of them for free.

FBI agents in hazmat suits, equipped with respirators, raided a medical clinic last week after a doctor reportedly gave high dose vitamin C to essential workers who may be exposed to COVID-19. Though no arrests have been made, the FBI said they are looking at evidence to find out more information about the vitamin C treatments.

Just 13 percent of Americans are aware of the human tsunami at the border, Breitbart.com reported, citing a Harvard-Harris poll.

Americans likely don't know the government is dumping thousands of impoverished, and sometimes diseased, "migrants" into their communities, or that local officials are diverting local tax dollars to help pay for it, as the governor of New Mexico did on Sunday. New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, the Denver Post reported, spent $4,000 of public money to ship 55 Central American illegals to Denver. Why ship them north?

An eight-month pregnant mother couldn't get her son to the bathroom in time, so he peed where he stood which caused a nearby deputy to charge the mom with a crime.

Police officers in America have what is called 'officer discretion' as one of their many tools-meaning that if a police officer wants to let you go for a violation he or she thinks didn't cause any harm, they can do just that.
