After Montana banned TikTok, it happened what we all thought it would: the creators have struck back. A group of app users has sued the state of Montana in an attempt to overturn the controversial decision. They claim that the ban violates the First Amendment but also deprives the users of many other constitutional rights.
Montana will be the first state in the USA to ban the popular social media app TikTok. The state legislature passed a bill requiring that app stores ban the app in the state of Montana.
The ban is supposed to be put into effect in 2024, though it’s likely that it could get legally challenged before then. The reason behind the ban is the same as the ban that Congress and the Senate placed on the app in previous months.
The glaciers at Glacier National Park are rapidly shrinking. In fact, they’re melting so fast that the glaciers that can be seen today represent just one-sixth of the number of the icy bodies that were in the same park just 150 years ago.
It is imperative that scientists measure glaciers and follow their changes, and this is exactly where repeat photography kicks in.
By going to the same spot where a photo was taken a long time ago and recreating the composition, scientists are able to quickly learn (and share) how the landscape has changed over time.
The results, unfortunately, are alarming.
