In Angola, Brazil, Burma and Mauritania (among other places) fishers have formed a centuries-old mutualistic relationship with dolphins in the area.

Dolphins find it difficult to catch individual fish and fishers find it difficult to find where groups of fish are. So they work together to catch them.

Mutualism is so prevalent here that the fishers know each dolphin by name, and were a dolphin to get caught in a fishers' net, they will not panic and wait patiently for the fishers to let them free. Fishers will even throw fish to dolphins afterwards as a token of thanks.

"This week Donald Trump decided to rapidly pull out all the US forces currently backing the Kurdish YPG militia in Northern Syria, known as Rojava to the Kurds. The YPG has proven to be the strongest ally for the US when fighting ISIS, but now they'll be left alone for Turkey to attack."

Well, f-off Facebook, really.

#Facebook allowed #Microsoft’s Bing search engine to see the names of virtually all FB users’ friends without consent, the records show, and gave #Netflix and #Spotify the ability to read FB users’ private messages.
