The Cleaners

INDEPENDENT LENS: The Cleaners

 

Meet some of the people whom Silicon Valley leaders like Facebook and Google hire to do “digital cleaning” – deleting offensive, pornographic and incendiary posts. Mostly located in the Philippines, these “content moderators” delete “inappropriate” content on the net, thereby influencing what people around the world see and think. A typical “cleaner” must observe and rate thousands of often deeply disturbing images and videos every day, leading to lasting psychological impacts. Viewer discretion is advised.

NOVA
Invisible Universe Revealed

 

Twenty-five years ago, NASA launched one of the most ambitious experiments in the history of astronomy: the Hubble Space Telescope. In honor of Hubble’s landmark anniversary, NOVA tells the remarkable story of the telescope that forever changed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it. From its inception through its early days, when a one-millimeter engineering blunder turned the telescope into an object of ridicule, to the five heroic astronaut missions that returned Hubble to the cutting edge of science, NOVA hears from the scientists and engineers on the front line who tell the amazing Hubble story as never before. This single telescope has helped astronomers pinpoint the age of the universe, revealed the birthplace of stars and planets, advanced our understanding of dark energy and cosmic expansion and uncovered black holes lurking at the hearts of galaxies. For more than a generation, Hubble’s stunning images have brought the beauty of the heavens to millions, revealing a cosmos richer and more wondrous than we ever imagined. Join NOVA for the story of this magnificent machine and its astonishing discoveries.

 

PBS Hawaiʻi’s New Home

 

Welcome to PBS Hawaiʻi’s New Home, the Clarence T.C. Ching Campus


Here is PBS Hawaiʻi’s open-concept new home, designed for collaboration, transparency and flexibility.

 

 

In May of 2016, we moved into the two-story building at the corner of Nimitz Highway and Sand Island Access Road in Honolulu. It functions beautifully as a place to create, acquire and distribute stories that matter to the islands that we serve.

 

 

Interior square footage is 30,000 square feet, which includes a large television/multimedia studio and a smaller second studio which doubles as PBS Hawaiʻi’s Board Room. There also is ample, cheerful space in which to hold events and meet with community members.

 

We are ever grateful to the people of Hawaiʻi and others who provided this place where people and ideas come together.

 

Our sincere and heartfelt Mahalo to our supporters, the people of Hawai‘i
