Twitter has just hidden US President Donald Trump‘s tweet about the situation in Minnesota, saying it “glorified violence.” The company didn’t delete the tweet as it thought “it may be in the public interest for the tweet to remain accessible.”
In the tweet, Trump was addressing civil unrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and threatened that law enforcement would open fire in response.

This comes hours after Trump signed an executive order that holds social media companies liable for content hosted on their platform. The order aims to remove Section 230, which provides a safe harbor to social media companies; it relieves them from the responsibility for the content published by users and hosted on their platforms.
In a tweet, Twitter said it has placed a public interest notice on Trump’s Minnesota tweet.

We have placed a public interest notice on this Tweet from @realdonaldtrump. https://t.co/6RHX56G2zt

HARRISBURG – The Town of Harrisburg began the process to update its Unified Development Ordinance and plans to adopt the updated ordinance by March 2021.The town adopted its first zoning ordinance in 1985, and its current UDO was adopted in 2008. Since then Harrisburg’s population, land development pattern, economy and the state’s legislative land use changes sparked the need to update the UDO.”The UDO regulations have been amended throughout the years as needed. These were not done holistically, rather we looked at each regulations individually,” stated Planning & Economic Development Director Sushil Nepal. “What we have found is these individual changes impact other sections of the UDO and those were left unchanged. The UDO update will address those discrepancies.”

In 2018, the town council adopted the Harrisburg Area Land Use Plan, which was a collaboration between the town and Cabarrus County. The plan set out the framework for the town’s future development through 2040.In order to help implement the recently adopted HALUP, the UDO must be updated, town staff stated during a presentation to the town council and planning board, in order to comply with regulations in the HALUP.The UDO update will also align the town with the new federal …

If you’ve been sifting through all those opinions, chances are good you’ve heard of Python.

There probably isn’t a single right answer to your question. Learning any programming language will also teach you how to think like a programmer. All programming languages have their strengths and weaknesses. If you’re looking for a language that works in a broad range of applications, or just want to dip your toe into the coding waters, Python may be good to try.

Python has a reputation for being easy to understand for new programmers. It can be used to write programs for computers or applications for the web. If you want to create the next big mobile app, however, Python is not a popular choice. A 2019 survey of Python users found that the most …
