Back in 2009, Carl Siciliano wasn't sure if his nonprofit was going to survive the throes of the Great Recession. The Ali Forney Center, a group committed to helping homeless LGBTQ youth in New York City, was on the brink of eviction.

ShareTweet Jesus instructs in Mark 16:15 that we are to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” As Christ followers, we know this is our kingdom duty, but how many of us carry it out in our daily lives?

Alabama police chief suspended for saying ‘silence is consent’ on Facebook
Consent for anything, including sexual behavior, looks like an affirmative, enthusiastic, “yes”—not the absence of a “no.” While some institutions are doing their part to catch communities up to speed, it seems even people in positions of power have missed the message. On Monday, Tim Tubbs, the mayor of Killen, an Alabama town 10 miles from the Tennessee border, suspended Killen Police Chief Bryan Hammond for 15 days without pay for writing “silence is consent” in a Facebook comment,

Facebook rolls out AI to detect suicidal posts before theyre reported
This is software to save lives.

By using AI to flag worrisome posts to human moderators instead of waiting for user reports, Facebook can decrease how long it takes to send help. Facebook previously tested using AI to detect troubling posts and more prominently surface
