Don't be fooled by the idea that identifying sex trafficking victims is easy
Nowadays, major sports events and crackdowns on human trafficking tend to go hand in hand. As last weekend’s Super Bowl approached, wild speculation about an imminent sex trafficking threat of epic proportions followed, leading various firms and agencies to announce measures to save women from unthinkable fates. Ahead of the Super Bowl, for example, Fox 5 Atlanta reported that anti-prostitution task forces like ‘Save Our Adolescents’ from Prostitution (also known, rather questionably, as “SOAP”) and ‘It’s a Penalty’ had stepped up their efforts in a bid to “keep Atlanta safe and...protect those women who are being brought in”.

'Climate chaos': Melting ice sheets will trigger extreme weather across the world, warn scientists
Collapsing ice sheets at the poles are powerful symbols of a warming world, but new research suggests they may also be ramping up the global impact of climate change. As the icy cliffs of Greenland and Antarctica thaw, scientists think the influx of water will trigger extreme weather and disrupt ocean currents across the globe. Conventional wisdom holds that the most worrying consequence of melting polar ice will be the contribution of these enormous water stores to worldwide sea levels.

Self-Harm & Suicide Content Is Still Alarmingly Easy To Find on Social Media
Warning: This feature contains references to self-harm and suicide which could act as triggers to some readers. The link between mental ill health and social media, particularly among younger generations, is old news, but the recent coverage of 14-year-old Molly Russell's death by suicide has made many members of the UK establishment sit up and finally listen. After Molly took her own life in 2017, her family were given access to their daughter's social media accounts and were alarmed by the content she'd been following.
