The Federal Public Ministry (MPF) recommended that WhatsApp postpone the implementation of the “Comunidades” feature to January 2023 in Brazil. The MPF’s concern is that the tool will start working during the electoral period and, according to the organ, will contribute to fake news, fake news, going viral on social networks. The functionality will allow the integration of WhatsApp groups in spaces of common interest – the “Communities”. The MPF gave a period of 20 days for WhatsApp to inform whether or not it will comply with the recommendation on the launch of the new feature. If the platform decides not to accept it, the agency promises to go to court to prevent the functionality from being activated during the elections. For the MPF, this could “jeopardize the democratic stability of the country” as the administrators of the “Communities” will be able to send messages “to all the thousands of members of the groups, at once. Such a feature, depending on how it will be used after it is implemented, could increase the ability of people to viralize content through the application”.
The London High Court ruled in favor of the board of the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) that was appointed by Juan Guaidó, leader opposed to the regime of dictator Nicolás Maduro, in the case of the dispute over the control of Venezuelan gold deposited in the Bank of England.. After a four-day trial, which ended on July 18, the judge from the commercial division of the court ruled that she could not uphold the decisions of the Supreme Court of Justice of Venezuela (TSJ) that annulled Guaidó’s appointments to that council, since there is no legal basis in the UK to do so. However, the judge did not authorize opponents to access the reservations – a decision will be determined at another hearing – despite the fact that the council formed by them is considered valid and Guaidó is recognized by the UK government as the only legitimate president of Venezuela, in interim character. The bank’s board appointed by Nicolás Maduro, which is vying for control of the gold with the opposition leadership, said it was considering appealing the decision.

And finally, the highlight Always Family: emotional control helps to distinguish hunger from the desire to eat. Who never waited for the weekend to arrive, after a tiring week, to “put their foot in the jackfruit” in some rotation to de-stress? Or resorted to a sweet to comfort some momentary sadness? As long as it doesn’t become frequent and the person doesn’t realize they’re eating out of emotion or out of control, this wouldn’t be a problem, as many believe. However, when someone gets used to eating as a mechanism to deal with, reduce, escape or distract themselves from negative emotions such as sadness, anxiety, stress, boredom, the warning signal must be lit, says the psychiatrist heard by our report.
