MADRID (AP) — Spain approved a pioneering law Tuesday that gives delivery platforms a mid-August deadline to hire the workers currently freelancing for them and that requires transparency of artificial intelligence used to manage workforces. The new law approved by the center-left ruling coalition comes in the wake of a ruling by Spain's top court last year and at a time when other countries in Europe and elsewhere are deciding on a labor model for the so-called gig economy. The government's move has angered digital businesses and some food delivery workers who took to the streets on Tuesday in different Spanish cities because they say that remaining self-employed benefits them. Labor Minister Yolanda Díaz said Spain was the first country to take legislation on the relationship between delivery platforms and their workforce this far. “We are at the vanguard and the world is looking at us,” Díaz told reporters following a weekly Cabinet meeting. She said the move was an effort to protect the most vulnerable and that reflected the “new winds” that across the world were implementing trying to increase the wellbeing of citizens. “Workers cannot leave their soul on the keyboard of our laptops or on electronic gadgets,” Díaz said. The government's law has been the result of an agreement with the country's main workers' unions and industry associations, although smaller groups representing Uber Eats, Deliveroo, Glovo and other main players in the market claim they have been sidelined in the negotiations.

Wednesday May 5, 2021 marked Red Dress Day across Turtle Island. Thousands of social media posts across Instagram were shared to raise awareness for MMIWG2S, and the harm caused by colonial trauma. Thousands of content creators woke up on Thursday to find that all their story posts from the previous day had been erased without a trace. On Thursday afternoon, Instagram communications released a tweet that said: "We know that some people are experiencing issues uploading and viewing stories. This is a widespread global technical issue not related to any particular topic and we're fixing it right now. We'll provide an update as soon as we can." Considering that communities were not permitted to gather in person due to COVID-19, social media became the vessel to share stories and experiences across Turtle Island. Red Dress Day is a day of healing for victims and families who are affected by MMIWG2S. This mass erasure of voices seems especially harmful in nature as it was only posts that contained reference to MMIWG2S that were algorithmically deleted. Instagram has since released a lengthier statement as to why this mass erasure happened, stating it was a system update that caused the posts to be deleted, but for Indigenous communities, this is a part of a larger issue. Indigenous voices are continually silenced and “shadow banned” across all platforms, a practice where platforms restrict, limit, or hide content from being viewed by audiences. Sharing information and spreading awareness through social media allows people to convey messages that aren't always shared in the mainstream media, and is an important tool for communities to stay connected and informed. This incident should call for social media platforms to do better in their moderation of content, and be held accountable for the harm they have caused thousands on Red Dress Day.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A 52-year-old teacher was sentenced to 15 years in prison for secretly recording videos of students as they changed clothes in his fashion design classroom at a Florida high school. Mark William Ackett also must remain a registered sex offender for the rest of his life. “There’s so much suffering in this case by so many different people due to the actions of the defendant. There’s very little I can say today to make any of that better,” Hillsborough County Judge Laura Ward said at his sentencing on Monday. Ackett occasionally met the gaze of former students attending the hearing in a Tampa courtroom. He later read an apology in a clear, steady voice, the Tampa Bay Times reported. During the two-hour hearing he bowed his head as friends, neighbors and his wife of nearly 30 years begged for leniency. But prosecutors pointed out that the 324 counts of video voyeurism Ackett pleaded guilty to in April call for roughly 366 years in prison, the newspaper reported. Defense attorneys had asked for no more than three years, plus probation, promising that Ackett would continue seeking treatment for a diagnosed “voyeuristic disorder.” Ackett sobbed as his victims spoke to the judge. Eva Applebee, a longtime Bloomingdale High School teacher, spoke of the shock and disbelief she felt when she learned she was the only adult in the videos. Prosecutors said Ackett, after returning to Bloomingdale as the girl's track coach and fashion design teacher in 2017, collected, cropped and edited hundreds of nude and partially-nude videos and photos of 125 victims changing in the fashion design class dressing room. Applebee told the court it felt like she had been punched in the stomach when she learned that his cameras were in the classroom they shared. The students now call the classroom the “room of horrors,” she said. “What Mark did was not an isolated lapse of judgement but calculated and deliberate criminal acts,” Applebee said. “Mark groomed and chose his victims - gaining their trust and then taking advantage of them.” A parent whose daughter was 15 when she was recorded changing clothes told the judge she can't trust the school system any more. “I can’t trust the teachers or the coaches, I can’t trust anyone anymore,” she said. Several students said they struggle with depression and anxiety. Another went from being a standout on the girl’s track team to quitting completely. One victim told the judge she spent her father's birthday sitting with investigators and identifying pictures of her naked body. Those who came to court to speak on behalf of Ackett described him as a good neighbor, a good coach, a volunteer for his kids’ marching band, a trusted Sunday school teacher and a loving husband, the Times reported. “I wish I could go back and change what I did, or do something to make amends but I know that I cannot,” Ackett said to the court. “I feel especially ashamed of what I did because you treated me with such care. Some of you confided in me your fears and problems, and many of you consider my classroom a safe place to escape the problems that you face. I will never forgive myself for turning something that should have been a fond memory for you into something that you would rather forget.” Prosecutors said Ackett was caught when a 17-year-old student noticed a box on a shelf with a light coming from it as she changed clothes. Inside it, she found a cellphone that appeared to be recording. She told the school's principal who called the sheriff's office. “He is an excellent actor, having fooled us and his very own family for years,” Applebee said. “Acting like he cared, like he respected us. But instead we found out it was a big act.” The Associated Press
