    A D-notice in the UK is issued on matters of national security, like following the Manchester bombing, but none were issued in this case. The rumor started percolating on left-wing blogs because reports on the number of victims were slow to come in.

  5. In the wake of several scandals, Uber is taking steps to change its corporate culture. One of those steps is renaming the War Room to the Peace Room.

    The bill proposed many changes, one of them was around gender identity. The bill does not say that disagreement with a child about their gender identity or gender expression is enough to bring the child into care. Instead, it has to be part of "a pattern of abuse, neglect or serious emotional harm" before removing the child can be considered.
