0.1% of 6 billion is 6 million, not 60 million. I'd guess their IT dept was probably in the 100 person range, sounds like you worked for a very small one or had a limited view of what "IT" encompasses.
These articles don't say what you're suggesting. I didn't see anything in them predicting that more hurricanes would be hitting the US specifically. They predicted stronger hurricanes (which has been happening) and more hurricanes (which has been happening), but I didn't see anywhere saying "more of this will happen in the US". Generally they just say, correctly, that warmer weather produces more storms.
They were not registering as political organizations. They were registering as 501(c)(4)'s, which are social welfare organizations. They are allowed to engage in political activity, but it cannot be their primary focus. Many of these organizations were created exclusively to engage in political activity. They were breaking the rules, it's not anyone's fault but theirs that they got caught.
"Oversampling" is a polling method for getting a lower margin of error among one of the subgroups in a poll. For example if you're extremely interested in whether 18-30 year-olds support a policy at a 49% rate or a 51% rate, and a 3% margin of error is too much, you might oversample that age group. It does nothing to the overall results of the poll, just makes the margin of error smaller in one of the subgroups.
Try to learn a few basic things about how the world works before claiming that everything is "rigged".
So you wouldn't call it racism if someone is up for a parole hearing, and they are denied because an algorithm was tuned to deny black people? The article has a reasonable point, even if it has a shitty title.
Or let me guess, you're one of those "race realists" who just happens to feel that whites are superior.
That would be awful. It's natural for real-time data like a phone call to have higher priority than a video stream that's buffered far in advance. To not prioritize different protocols would be irresponsible management of the network.
