  • A binder filled with DNA and personal details “in case I go missing” has gone viral on TikTok.

  • The idea originates from a popular true-crime podcast, but it has faced criticism from audiences.

  • Law enforcement say it could be useful, but the risks may outweigh the potential benefits.

On December 14, 2022, the TikTok account for a brand called Savor, which sells organization and storage products, uploaded a video of a person thumbing through a folder sold by the brand. A voiceover said it was filled with items intended to be used in case the person went missing, including a hair sample, a set of fingerprints, and a list of people police should question.

The folder used is sold on Savor’s website as the “In Case I Go Missing” binder, priced at $46.95.

Savor’s clip quickly went viral, receiving over 10 million views and thousands of comments. Some encouraged the idea and gave advice on additional items they thought belonged in the binder.

In a series of follow-up videos, @Savor.It.All responded to the advice from comments, adding a cheek swab and an updated hair sample.

Jennifer McAllister-Nevins, the 52-year-old founder and co-CEO of Savor, told Insider in an email statement that when her father was in hospital she was asked what medication he took, and she didn’t know the answer. The brand developed the “Family Emergency Collection,” which the binder is part of, to help people be “prepared for any situation,” she said.

But a lot of viewers were critical of the concept, suggesting it was playing off irrational fears, romanticizing the idea of being a crime victim, and offering counterproductive advice. A number of users stitched

DOJ Subpoenas Mike Pence for Information on Trump Plot to Overturn Election

It’s currently unclear whether Pence will comply with the subpoena request or try to invoke executive privilege.

Department of Justice (DOJ) special counsel Jack Smith, who is overseeing a two-pronged investigation into former President Donald Trump, has subpoenaed Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence.

Smith’s investigation is looking into Trump’s removal of classified documents from the White House and his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election after his loss to President Joe Biden. His subpoena of Pence is focused on the latter of those two inquiries.

According to reports from several news outlets, Smith requested that Pence hand over any documents in his possession relating to the attempted overturn of the 2020 election. Smith also wants Pence to testify on Trump’s motivations during the end of 2020 and the start of 2021.

It’s unclear whether Pence will comply with the subpoena or try to invoke executive privilege, which could send the matter to a lengthy review process within the federal court system. Though Pence has been critical of Trump in the years since they departed office, he risks upsetting the conservative voter base he’ll need to win a potential GOP primary for 2024 if he complies with Smith’s subpoena.

Pence has been uncooperative with requests to testify in other inquiries relating to the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol building and Trump’s attempts to overturn the election. Though several former members of his staff testified before the January 6 committee, Pence refused to do so, arguing that the legislative branch had “no right” to his testimony.

The subpoena demonstrates that the DOJ’s

Access to Information, NGO and Media Regulation In Zambia


By Isaac Mwanza

“If you put a key under the mat for the cops, a burglar can find it too. Criminals are using every technology tool at their disposal to hack into the people’s accounts. If they know there is a key hidden somewhere, they won’t stop until they find it” – Tim Cook

In Zambia, the questions of access to information (ATI), regulation of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the media have been a thorny generational issue which provoke personal, political and professional debates as well as resistance from those likely to be affected by such pieces of legislation.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND MEDIA REGULATION

Speaking when he featured on Hot FM Radio’s breakfast show in January, 2023, Zambia’s Justice Minister Mulambo Haimbe, S.C. said Zambians should expect progress on the enactment of the Access to Information Bill once the media themselves, resolve the issue of self-regulation, a matter that didn’t sit well with some media houses.

The Minister’s proposition obviously raises the question as to whether there is any link between access to information and media regulation? During the said programme, the Justice Minister said:

“The Access to Information Bill gives a lot of freedom not only to the media but also the general public in terms of access to information. Building into that, it comes with responsibility intended to be managed through a self-regulatory process with regard to the media…The two go hand in hand… So perhaps we have to look at it as a shared responsibility rather than a responsibility of government alone.”

If enacted, the Access to Information law will give both the media and the general public access to information which is generated or held by the government. For the media, such information is not for storage but to provide content and

ABC10’s reporting on California’s conservatorship system awarded

Andie Judson’s reporting on the “Price of Care” series led to changes in California’s conservatorship laws.

CALIFORNIA, USA — ABC10 investigative journalist Andie Judson received the James Madison Freedom of Information Award for her reporting on California’s conservatorship system.

“The Price of Care: Taken by the State” is a two-year investigation digging into the legally complex legal tool that gives civil rights and liberties of someone unable to care for themselves to another person or entity. In Season II, Judson and the ABC10 Originals team investigated the state agency responsible for the rights and needs of all Californians with disabilities, including separating families by conserving people with disabilities and cutting all contact and communication with their loved ones.

“Her tenacious and compassionate reporting shows that facilities conserving people with developmental disabilities have gone unmonitored, that staff evaluating conservatorships are grossly underpaid, and how individuals under an inappropriate type of conservatorship can have their rights stripped completely,” the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists wrote.

Judson received the award in the television/video category.

Watch the full series: “The Price of Care: Taken by the State” 

The five-episode investigation showed how DDS – a massive state agency – is a conservator to over 400 individuals with disabilities, responsible for their specific needs. The series revealed how after getting conservatorship, DDS then uses its power to separate families and isolate those they conserve in care facilities not regularly checked.

Not only is her award-winning reporting shining a light on the abuse facing some of the most vulnerable Californians, but it’s also leading to legislative changes. 

“Reporting by others about Britney Spears was important… but this is the real deal,” said attorney and advocate Tom Coleman. “(Investigative Reporter) Andie Judson has given a voice to the thousands of adults with developmental

Arkansas lawmaker files bill on publishing legal notices

A bill intended to change how Arkansas counties and municipalities publish various legal notices was filed Thursday.

House Bill 1399, by Rep. Frances Cavenaugh, R-Walnut Ridge, would require local jurisdictions to publish notices — including those related to elections, filling of vacancies and the amendment of ordinances — on government websites.

The bill would strike language from current law that requires municipalities and counties to publish notices in local newspapers. The publication of government notices is a significant stream of revenue for many newspapers.

The Arkansas Press Association and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette oppose the bill.

Under the bill, a county quorum court shall designate by ordinance the website which the county’s online publications will be posted.

When authorized by law, a municipality may publish on a website designated by the governing body in an ordinance. Publications shall remain on the government websites for at least three years from the date on which they were posted.

The websites must be accessible to the public at no cost and require no log-in information.

Temporary language in the bill indicates local jurisdictions would have to publish notices in their current newspaper monthly for a year directing readers to the government site.

The bill includes an effective date of Jan. 1, 2024.

AFL may help cover Clarkson, Fagan legal fees

The AFL’s insurance system is expected to cover a large share of Alastair Clarkson, Chris Fagan and Jason Burt’s legal expenses for the inquiry into alleged mistreatment of First Nations players and their partners.

Sources familiar with the situation, who spoke anonymously to discuss sensitive information, said the AFL had a pool of well over $1 million available that could cover legal expenses for individuals, such as ex-Hawthorn coaches and officials Clarkson, Fagan and Burt.

It would also cover any other person, such as a former player, who incurred legal costs.

The pool is available through the AFL’s insurance set-up which covers each of the 18 clubs.

Under the complicated arrangement, the policy that will cover the fees in this instance is issued to Hawthorn.

Officials and club directors such as Clarkson, Fagan and Burt can apply to have their legal costs covered under the AFL’s insurance scheme, easing some of the financial pressures that officials face during an investigation or inquiry that requires expensive legal representation.

Clarkson, Fagan and Burt have the option of paying, out of their own pocket, more than the insured amount for legal costs. Clarkson has a team from Corrs Chambers Westgarth acting for him, while Fagan is represented by Clayton Utz and a Brisbane-based King’s Counsel. Burt is represented by solicitor Tony Hargreaves.

Clarkson, Fagan and Burt have strenuously denied the allegations and are putting forth their versions of events in the investigation, headed by a four-member panel chaired by Bernie Quinn, KC.

The AFL’s umbrella policy is understood not to cover the clubs that incur costs during an investigation. The league’s view is that the legal costs for individuals in an AFL investigation have to be covered to ensure that those who
