Curiosity Crew Discussions

The spread of coronavirus fake news: What you shouldn't fall for 

This fortnight we're sticking with the COVID-19 theme, jumping towards fake news. Though we might have a visceral reaction to such a term, it is important to be able to recognize false information, especially when lives could depend on it. Because the video is by now several months old, look over the current FDA COVID-19 information on fraudulent claims. View the video by clicking here.

Why are peaceful protests turning into riots?

George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police officers on May 25, 2020. Since then, peaceful protests have taken place across the United States and the world, with people showing solidarity and making their message clear: Black lives matter and the systemic racism in the United States needs to end. Unfortunately, at many of those protests, riots have broken out, leading to intense violence between protesters and police. There are important questions to ask regarding these riots, namely: who is inciting and subsequently participating in this violence? And why? This article examines three reasons these riots may be taking place. It also provides five suggestions on how to incite change in a more peaceful manner, including references at the end which can be used during this momentous time. Check out the article here.

Please note: the moderators of the Curiosity Crew recognize and acknowledge the fact that this topic is one where emotions and passions can run very high. We encourage thoughtful, candid discussion among The Crew. However, should this conversation turn violent or derogatory towards any person in attendance, we will give the offending Curiosity Crew member a warning. If the offending member does not heed this warning and continues to be belligerent, we reserve the right to remove that member from the forum for the rest of the meeting. The Curiosity Crew is for everyone to have a safe discussion, and the moderators do not want to have to reprimand or remove anyone from the meeting. You won't like it. We won't like it. Let's please do our best to keep things civil.
