Mark Zuckerberg's sister sexually harassed on flight, Alaska Airlines launches investigation

Alaska Airlines has temporarily suspended her co-passenger`s travel privileges.

San Francisco: Randi Zuckerberg, the former Director of Market Development of Facebook and the sister of the company`s co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, was sexually harassed on an Alaska Airlines flight.

The Silicon Valley entrepreneur to social media to detail her recent flight between Los Angeles and Mazatlan, Mexico and explained her ordeal and how the flight attendants brushed off her co-passenger`s behaviour.

In a letter to executives of the Seattle-based airline, she said she was extremely uncomfortable with a man sitting near her, explaining he constantly made sexually explicit and lewd comments to her and others in the first-class section while being served multiple alcoholic drinks.

"Feeling furious, disgusted and degraded after an Alaska Airlines flight during which the passenger next to me made repeated lewd, inappropriate, and offensive sexual remarks to me," Randi posted on Facebook.

Feeling disgusted & degraded after an @AlaskaAir flight where the passenger next to me made repeated lewd sexual remarks. The flight attendants told me he was a frequent flier, brushed off his behavior & kept giving him drinks. I guess his $ means more than our safety? My letter: pic.twitter.com/xOkDpb0dYU

"Both me and my colleague reported the incident to flight attendants who told me this was a frequent flier, brushed off his behaviour as "oh, he just doesn`t have a filter," kept feeding him more drinks, and suggested that I move to the back of the plane if I was uncomfortable," she added.

Meanwhile, Alaska Airlines has launched an investigation and has temporarily suspended her co-passenger`s travel privileges.

UPDATE: I just got off the phone with two executives from @AlaskaAir who informed me that they are conducting an investigation and have temporarily suspended this passenger’s travel privileges. Thank you for taking this seriously.

— Randi Zuckerberg (@randizuckerberg) November 30, 2017

The airline said in part: "We want our guests to feel safe. As a company, we have zero tolerance for any type of sexual misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and crew members."


1. There's never a "perfect" time to go after your dreams.

"I think there's never a good time to be an entrepreneur, just like people tell you there's never a perfect time to have children. No matter when you do it, it's going to completely shake up everything in your life. So if you are sitting in your day job, and you're feeling unfulfilled, or you're feeling like your purpose in life is not being recognized, and there's something inside of you that's like, 'I've always wanted to open up my own restaurant,' or 'I have an idea for an app,' that's kind of burning in you? Then you know that you need to be an entrepreneur."


Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of Facebook, is no doubt one of the greatest human beings that have walked the surface of the earth.

Through his popular social media platform, this tech guru has given value to the popular saying: “The world is a small village”.

In his first visit to Sub-Saharan Africa, the 7th richest man in the world spent two days in Lagos, before visiting Kenya, and later returning to Nigeria to meet President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

Here are 25 things you probably didn’t know about him.

NAMED AFTER HIS GRANDFATHER

He was named after Marco, his Bulgarian maternal grandfather, who migrated to the United States in the 1940s.

HAS 3 SISTERS

The eldest child of Edward, a dentist, and Karen, a psychiatrist, Mark has three female siblings: Randi, Donna and Arielle.

HOW HIS PROGRAMMING JOURNEY BEGAN

His father taught him Atari BASIC Programming in the 1990s, and later hired software developer David Newman to tutor him privately.

At age of 12 years, he built ZuckNet, a software programme which allowed all the computers between the house and his father’s dental office to communicate.

CO-FOUNDED FACEBOOK WITH 3 ROOM MATES

On February 4 2004, Zuckerberg alongside Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes, his college roommates at Harvard, founded Facebook. Saverin was the one who offered $1,000 capital money to get the company started.

LONGEST LEGAL BATTLE OVER FACEBOOK

His longest legal battle over Facebook was against the twins, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. They accused him of stealing their idea of Facebook. However, they finally ended the battle with a settlement of over $60 million.

HE IS COLOURBLIND

The reason blue dominates Facebook website and mobile app is because Zuckerberg is colourblind.

According to The New Yorker, Zuckerberg is red-green colourblind, which means the colour he can see best is blue.

“Blue is the richest color for me. I can see all of blue,” he told the magazine.

YOU CAN’T BLOCK HIM ON FACEBOOK

No one can block him on Facebook. You wanna try?

THE CODE THAT MAKES HIS NAME APPEAR

Zuckerberg’s programmed his own trick into Facebook. If you type @[4:0] in the comment box, his name will appear. A trial will convince those in doubt.

NOT ACTIVE ON TWITTER

Zuckerberg’s Twitter handle is @finkd. He has 423,000 followers, and he’s following 819 people. He has posted only 19 tweets, the last being on January 18, 2012.

HE MET HIS WIFE IN A QUEUE

He met Priscilla Chan, his wife, while she was waiting in line for the bathroom at a party. That was in 2003, and nine years later they got married.

Like Mark, the daughter of Chinese-Vietnamese refugees, is a graduate of Harvard.

She joined Facebook on February 5, 2004, the day after it was launched, becoming one of the first set of persons to do so.

HIS WIFE IS THE FIRST GRADUATE IN HER FAMILY

She is the first in her Chinese-American family to graduate from university. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard and graduated as a paediatrician from the University of California, the third-best medical school in the United States.

Priscilla is the eldest of three girls, with an eight-year age gap between her and her youngest sister.

SHE SUFFERED 3 MISCARRIAGES

In July last year, Zuckerberg announced that his wife had suffered three miscarriages.

He also went on to say that they would be expecting a child.

“Priscilla and I have some exciting news: we’re expecting a baby girl!” he wrote on Facebook.

“This will be a new chapter in our lives. We’ve already been so fortunate for the opportunity to touch people’s lives around the world — Cilla as a doctor and educator, and me through this community and philanthropy.

“Now we’ll focus on making the world a better place for our child and the next generation.”

On December 1, 2015, they welcomed their daughter.

DONATION TO CHARITY

In 2013, Zuckerberg and his wife donated 18 million shares of Facebook stock to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. The shares were valued at around $1 billion.

DEATH RUMOUR

In 2012, Global Associated News published the rumour that Zuckerberg died in a car crash.

The publication, which has developed a reputation for spreading false reports about celebrities’ deaths, claimed that alcohol was a factor in the death.

The report read: “Mark Zuckerberg died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the vehicle accident and was identified by photo ID found on his body. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been a factor in this accident – April 28, 2014.”

ZUCKERBERG’S ‘INFLUENTIAL’ DOG

His Hungarian Sheepdog named Beast, has a Facebook page with over 2.3 million page ‘likes’!

HE IS AN ATHEIST

Zuckerberg doesn’t believe in God. Are you surprised?

‘POOREST RICH PERSON’

Someone once described him as “the poorest rich person I’ve ever seen in my life”, living like a student in rented houses even though he was worth billions.

His family home has remained the same for decades, with little furniture, a small kitchen and the only obvious luxury a row of theatre style seats in front of a big TV.

RATED THE WORST DRESSED


Based on his trademark jeans and tee shirt, Zuckerberg topped the list of GQ’s Worst-Dressed Men of Silicon Valley in 2011.

Three years later, during a Q& A session, Zuckerberg said he often wears jean and tee shirts because of the nature of his schedule.

He said even small decisions like choosing what to wear or what to eat for breakfast could be tiring and consume energy, and he didn’t want to waste any time on that.

“I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community,” Zuckerberg said, after clarifying that he had “multiple same shirts.”

GAVE HIS FATHER 2 MILLION SHARES IN FACEBOOK

As of 2012, his father had not touched the two million shares in Facebook, which his son gave him as a thank you for helping him set up the business, a gift he initially refused but eventually accepted.
They were worth around $60 million back then.

Ed Zuckerberg said even though Mark had done well, he did not really know what he had done so right as a parent.

FAMILY MEMBERS REFUSED TO STOP WORKING

Back in 2012, his parents ran the same dental practice they opened in 1978, with no plans to retire.

Arielle was a product manager for San Francisco based marketing firm Wildfire Interactive. Dona, the second sister, Donna, ran a food blog and was doing a PhD at Princeton University, while Randi, the final sibling, had been married to college sweetheart Brent Tworetzky, with a baby named Asher and was making a reality TV show about the San Francisco Bay Area tech scene.

LOWEST PAID FACEBOOK EMPLOYEE

Since 2013, the billionaire draws an annual wage of just $1 as the CEO of Facebook, making him the company’s lowest-paid employee.

FIRST PERSON TO REJECT $1bn

He did what? Yes, he rejected $1 billion.

According to CNN, Terry Semel, former CEO of Yahoo, who offered Zuckerberg that sum in exchange of Facebook, told the New Yorker that he’d never met a person who would turn down a $1 billion offer.

“He [Zuckerberg] said, ‘It’s not about the price. This is my baby, and I want to keep running it, I want to keep growing it,'” Semel said, recalling his conversation with Zuckerberg in 2006. “I couldn’t believe it.”

The Harvard newspaper picked up on the same sentiment.

“That’s just like not something we’re really interested in,” he told the paper in 2004, referring to offers from companies wanting to buy Facebook. “I mean, yeah, we can make a bunch of money — that’s not the goal.”

BIGGEST STUMBLING BLOCK TO FACEBOOK

Last year, Zuckerberg faced what can be described as the biggest challenge in the 12-year history of his company. The attempt to dominate Indian cyberspace, was halted by an overwhelming local opposition.

As at 2014, there were up to 100 million Facebook users in the country. According to a Facebook executive, the company’s internal analysis projected that more than 30% of the new customers it hoped to add worldwide by 2020 would come from India.

Facebook did not intend waiting for them to just come on board, it developed the big plan: Internet.org, which would provide free basic internet services.

But the country’s techs raised suspicions. They saw Zuckerberg as someone who was out to give so little in exchange of a huge benefit.

Nikhil Pahwa, an entrepreneur, coordinated a massive campaign, which consumed the idea. Not even strategies adopted by Facebook, including spending an estimated £30 million on advertising, helped in achieving the desired result.

ONLY ADVICE FOR FRIENDS

What advice does he have to offer? “All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school – my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program.”

A FAN OF GAGA, RIHANNA AND SHAKIRA

Some of his favorite musicians are Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Shakira, and Daft Punk.

The world of technology is advancing at a frightening pace. It is estimated that over 2 billion people around the world are connected to the internet whereas approximately 1.5 billion own both a smartphone and a PC. At the turn of the 21st century Google was just a search engine, helping you to stalk your ex and find recipes for carrot cake, but today Google is one of the biggest multinational companies in the world, with assets of over $110 billion. The next leap in this technological age is one of convenience, one that can keep us connected, turned-on and tuned-in at all times. Wireless Charging, something that seems fairly insignificant at first, has the potential to be so much more.

Wireless charging works through magnetic induction and involves a small device (known as a plate) that creates a short-range electromagnetic field which oscillates around a coil. This field is bound to itself and to a device within range, meaning that you can charge your smartphone or tablet by simply resting it on or near the plate. In an age where most of us own smartphones and tablets, wireless charging has become a must-have, with many technology companies clamoring to create the iconic product for this rising technology.

Wirless power banks for puclic use

One of the companies leading the way in wireless charging technology is Powermat, who created the Power Matters Alliance in an attempt to establish a monopoly in the industry. The PMA is made up of several technology and retail companies, including Proctor & Gamble, Starbucks, AT&T and our old friend Google. Their ambitious plan is to create devices that will not only be available for home use, but will also be used in businesses, retail stores and public venues. Regardless of where you are and what you’re doing, if your phone or tablet needs charging there’ll always be a charging station on hand to help. At least that’s how it works in theory.

Powermat began in 2007 and has been making steady gains ever since. Although not the only player in the market, they have made several movements in the market already, including a recent deal with the fast-food chain McDonalds, which will see their products implemented in over 1,000 stores across Europe and worldwide installation in The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf chain of coffee shops. These figures may sound big, but considering that there are nearly 35,000 McDonald’s stores across 116 counties and less than 1,000 “The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf” stores worldwide there is still a long way to go before the Power Matters Alliance achieve the sort of figures they desire.

This is not just a specialist field for third-party mobile technology companies, the biggest brands in mobile phone technology are also getting in on the act. Nokia, the Finnish communications company that has been at the forefront of mobile design for the last couple of decades — paving the way for many of the devices commonly found today — have their own line of chargers. These tiny and colourful devices work with the range of Lumia phones and can be picked up for a fraction of the price of one of their handsets — slightly more expensive than a wired charger. The restrictions with these charging devices are that they are confined to work with the Lumia phones and other devices are not directly supported.

A Nokia Lumia on a Nokia Charging Plate

Of course, the technology is far from flawless and there are still a number of obstacles to overcome:

  • The current range of wireless chargers on the market run the risk of interference with other devices that operate on a similar frequency, and in a business environment that can become a problem.
  • The current range of chargers also consume far more power than the more direct and efficient wired chargers. But with the speed at which this technology is advancing it’s surely only a matter of time before these problems are resolved.

The future for wireless charging is bright for both the home and office user. Imagine never needing to search for a charger and never worrying about your battery life. This is not just a technology that can work with your environment, but one that can integrate with it. Desktops, tables and chairs can work with this technology so that whenever you put your phone down, it will be fully charged by the time you pick it up again.

This is truly an exciting technology, and soon the only question on all of our lips will be, “What next?”

This is truly an exciting technology, and soon the only question on all of our lips will be, “What next?”


Should Facebook Ban Holocaust Denial?

When a major Jewish organization polled Americans last year about their knowledge of the Holocaust, the results were shocking. Thirty-one percent of 31 percent of Americans — and 41 percent of millennials — believe that substantially fewer than 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, and 45 percent of the overall sample could not name a single concentration camp, according to the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany survey. Twenty-two percent of millennials didn’t even know what the Holocaust was.

Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and founder of Facebook, and the millennial of all millennials, walked right into the gaping Holocaust knowledge gap last week when he seemed to suggest in an interview with the tech news site Recode that Holocaust deniers aren’t “intentionally getting [things] wrong.”

He later clarified in a follow-up email to Recode’s Kara Swisher that “I personally find Holocaust denial deeply offensive, and I absolutely didn’t intend to defend the intent of people who deny that.” But the whole episode touched off a wide-ranging conversation about Holocaust denial, internet content, free speech and even the notion of criminalizing Holocaust denial.

The debate led to some fault lines in the Jewish community, especially about whether Facebook and other social media outlets should ban Holocaust denial. (In the Recode interview, Zuckerberg stated that Facebook would not delete content that was false or misleading, but rather make it less visible in the platform’s “News Feed,” where users see content of those they follow as well as sponsored material.)

In a phone interview with The Jewish Week, Deborah Lipstadt, a noted Holocaust historian and professor at Emory University who has spent her career fighting Holocaust denial, criticized Zuckerberg’s assumption that Holocaust deniers were not “intentionally getting it wrong.”

Lipstadt explained that “Holocaust denial is predicated on anti-Semitism, on the notion that the Jews have made this all up: they’ve made it all up in order to get money from Germany, they’ve made this all up to get a state and displace another people, that the Jews were powerful enough to get the Allies to do their bidding. … All those are anti-Semitic tropes or themes.” Denial, said Lipstadt, highlights “the power of the Jews to do this evil thing in order to enrich themselves.”

While she stopped short of saying that Holocaust denial should be criminalized, citing concern about a “slippery slope” of government regulation of speech, Lipstadt argued that Facebook and other social media platforms should keep posts from deniers out of their spaces.

She told JTA in an email: “I do not believe that non-governmental entities, such as Facebook, should be posting denial claims. Freedom of the press means the press should be free of governmental control. It does not mean that the press or social media platforms have to provide space for deniers.”

The Anti-Defamation League agreed.

Writing in the New York Daily News, Jonathan Greenblatt, the group’s CEO, argued that “Facebook does try to ban hate speech — and should root out Holocaust denial on those grounds, not simply because it’s false.” He elaborated in an email to The Jewish Week that “Holocaust denial has led to violent attacks against Jews, including the June 2009 shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum by an avowed white supremacist who spent much of his career promoting falsehoods about the Nazis and their role in the Holocaust.” The group said in a statement, “Facebook has a moral and ethical obligation not to allow its [Holocaust denial’s] dissemination.”

Yair Rosenberg, a senior writer at Tablet magazine and frequent commentator on issues of anti-Semitic harassment online, agreed with Lipstadt that “People spread Holocaust denial in order to undermine societal awareness of anti-Semitism and its consequences in order to make it easier to be anti-Semitic.”

But Rosenberg, who has faced significant harassment by neo-Nazis on Twitter, does not believe that Facebook should delete content that denies the Holocaust. Writing last week in The Atlantic he said that Facebook should instead offer a sort of “Surgeon General’s warning” that advises viewers of a page that the content they are viewing is false, offering links to reliable sites where users can learn more.

In some ways, the most provocative voice in the debate came from Mark Zuckerberg’s sister, Randi Zuckerberg, Facebook’s former director of marketing.

In a statement to CNN, she said that while she does not believe Facebook should ban Holocaust deniers, “the reality is that it is not currently considered a crime in the United States, and if we want our social networks to remove this hateful speech and follow the lead of many countries in Europe who denounce it as criminal, we need to expand the conversation more broadly and legislate at a national level.”

Though Holocaust denial has long been criminalized as hate speech in many European countries (most notably Germany), it has never been illegal in the United States. And neither Lipstadt, Greenblatt nor Rosenberg supports its criminalization.

Rosenberg argued that “I don’t think criminalizing any form of speech is an effective way of dealing with it. It doesn’t mean that you’ve refuted the worldview that gave rise to it, it just means that you’ve suppressed the symptom of the worldview while letting it otherwise go unrefuted, and if anything you’ve made a martyr out of the people who are spreading it.” He cited high rates of anti-Semitism in European countries that legislate against Holocaust denial as evidence that such laws do not materially reduce incidents of anti-Semitism.

Greenblatt told The Jewish Week that while Holocaust denial is “ugly speech, it is still protected by the First Amendment. We believe strongly in the right to free speech in this country. Holocaust deniers have every right to express their hatred, but we also have a right to use our free speech rights to counter such hate speech and reject it for the fiction it is.”

In her comments, Randi Zuckerberg also brought the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into play, seeming to compare Holocaust denial with support for the movement to divest from Israel.

“I wish that these platforms didn’t give a voice to those who cry out for divestment from Israel, make anti-Jewish remarks, and many, many other issues,” she wrote. “But silencing everyone — or worse, silencing selectively — would be far more nefarious.”

Zuckerberg Media, Randi Zuckerberg’s company, did not respond to a request for comment. Lipstadt told The Jewish Week that “what Mark and Randi Zuckerberg don’t understand, and many other people with them, is that Holocaust denial is not a mistaken point of view, it’s an overt distortion of history.”

Jewish Voice for Peace, which advocates for divestment from Israel as part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, told The Jewish Week in an email statement that “comments by Randi Zuckerberg, in which she conflates the international call to divest from companies profiting from the violation of Palestinian rights with the racist and violent agenda of Holocaust deniers, are beyond the pale. … Divestment, as part of the BDS call, urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law. Comparing divestment to Holocaust denial is not only a gross misrepresentation, but factually utterly inaccurate.”
