The Trap of Teaching People How to Treat You
Have you ever heard the phrase "you teach people how to treat you?" It's a common idea that many people believe to be true. The theory is that if you allow people to treat you poorly, they will continue to do so because you have taught them that it's okay. But here's the thing: this idea is a trap. It can keep you stuck in toxic relationships for far too long, and it can cause you to take responsibility for other people's behavior. The truth is that you cannot teach people how to treat you. You can set boundaries and communicate your needs, but ultimately, it's up to the other person to decide how they will treat you. I fell into this trap myself. I had toxic siblings who treated me poorly, and I believed that if I could just teach them how to treat me with respect, everything would be okay. But the more I tried to teach them, the worse things got. I realized that I was taking responsibility for their behavior. I was blaming myself for not being able to teach them how to be kind and respectful. But the truth is that it wasn't my responsibility to teach them. They were adults, and they were responsible for their own behavior. When I finally let go of the idea that I could teach them how to treat me, things started to shift. I set boundaries and communicated my needs, but I didn't try to teach them anything. I simply observed how they treated me and decided whether or not I wanted to continue the relationship. This is the key: observe how people treat you and allow that to teach you whether or not they are healthy and can stay in your life. If someone consistently treats you poorly, it's time to reevaluate the relationship. Setting boundaries is important, but it's not the same as teaching people how to behave. Your boundaries are for you, and they let others know what you will and will not tolerate. But you cannot control how others will behave, and you cannot force them to treat you with respect. The trap of teaching people how to treat you can also lead to a never-ending cycle of trying to teach someone a different way to behave. You may think that if you just find the right words or the right approach, the other person will finally understand and change their behavior. But in reality, this rarely works. People change when they are ready to change. It's not up to you to force them to change, and it's not your responsibility to teach them how to behave. The only thing you can control is how you respond to their behavior. If you find yourself in a toxic relationship, it's important to remember that you cannot teach the other person how to treat you. You can set boundaries and communicate your needs, but ultimately, it's up to the other person to decide how they will behave. The trap of teaching people how to treat you is a common one, but it's important to recognize it and avoid it. Instead, focus on observing how people treat you and making decisions based on that. It's not your responsibility to teach anyone how to behave, but it is your responsibility to take care of yourself and make decisions that are in your best interest.

Doctored videos of US President Joe Biden warning of aliens, Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky snorting cocaine, or US musician Eminem attacking Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador - the use of deep fakes and AI-generated audio-visuals to spread false information is increasingly getting normal, and "usually closer to elections," one expert says.

The Hague-based court said the warrant was issued over Putin’s suspected involvement in the unlawful deportation and transfer of children from occupied areas of Ukraine to Russia.

The decision is relevant for almost all EU websites. However, when websites include this technology they also forward all user data to the US multinational and onwards to the NSA. While the European Commission is still aiming to publish the third EU-US data transfer deal, the fact that US law still allows bulk surveillance means that this matter will not be solved any time soon, an NGO says.

The companies, the suit alleges, use artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver harmful content to children. Citing a recent study, the lawsuit notes suicidal behavior and depression among youths rose dramatically between 2011 and 2021. This trend, the complaint contends, corresponds with the growing popularity of Snap, TikTok and YouTube during the same period.

EU Claims Amazon Tax Structure Out Of A ‘Bond Movie’
"Project Goldcrest — it sounds like the title of a James Bond movie, but it is not,” it’s the name “Amazon gave to a complex tax construction by which it fundamentally reorganized its global business,” European Commission attorney Paul-John Loewenthal told a court hearing.

Perhaps the most significant aspect of the guidance is an author’s “duty to disclose the inclusion of AI-generated content in a work submitted for registration," the US Copyright Office says. Also, authors must be human to register works. However, an author who arranges generative AI into a specific sequence—like designing the layout for a comic book—can potentially copyright that sequence of images, if the arrangement is “sufficiently creative."

The two men are accused to possess books which “provoke hatred or contempt” for the central government, the Hong Kong SAR government and Hong Kong’s judiciary. Meanwhile, the UN called upon the authorities to repeal the sedition laws and refrain from using them to suppress the expression of critical and dissenting opinions.
