US officials to put off oil leases near sacred tribal land

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — U.S. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt has agreed to put off oil and gas leasing for a year on land that tribes consider sacred surrounding Chaco Canyon National Historical Park in northwestern New Mexico.Officials say that will allow time to finish an updated management plan to guide energy development across the region. The decision comes after Bernhardt visited the ancient site Tuesday.The area has been central to an ongoing dispute over drilling in the San Juan Basin in northwestern New Mexico and southwestern Colorado.Native American tribes and others are pushing for a formal buffer to protect culturally significant sites within 10 miles (16 kilometres) of the park.The management plan will include an alternative that reflects the views of Native American leaders and provisions from pending federal legislation.The Associated Press read more

UN humanitarian chief continues assessing needs in postconflict Gaza

24 January 2009The top United Nations humanitarian official, who is on the ground to assess needs in Gaza, has lauded the determination of those working to address the immediate needs of people in the wake of the recent three-week Israeli military offensive. Today in Ramallah and Jerusalem, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes met with the Palestinian Authority, representatives of the Private Sector Council, Palestinian and Israeli non-government organizations (NGOs), and Israeli academics.Members of civil society stressed to the UN official the need to keep the crossings into Gaza open, while Palestinian groups voiced the deep anger of their community and called for accountability. The 22-day offensive, which Israel launched on 27 December with the stated aim of ending Hamas rocket attacks, claimed over 1,300 lives, 412 of them children, and wounded more than 5,450, 1,855 of them children, as well as causing widespread destruction and suffering. In his talks with the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, Mr. Holmes, who also serves as Emergency Relief Coordinator, discussed bolstering relief, recovery and emergency repairs. Welcoming the support of governments and private organizations, the Palestinian Authority underscored the importance of cash donations, and asked that donors coordinate their aid with both the United Nations and the Authority. “During my visit to Gaza earlier this week, the destruction I witnessed was devastating,” said the Under-Secretary-General. “However, I end this visit encouraged by the determination of those I have met to respond as quickly as possible to the immediate needs of the people of Gaza, and to help them resume a life lived with dignity.” Yesterday, he briefed donors on his visit to Gaza and on the Flash Appeal to meet critical needs to be launched early next month, tomorrow, he will travel to Egypt to confer with representatives from the Government and the League of Arab States, as well as UN officials, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and others. John Ging, Director of Operations in Gaza for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), cautioned that there is growing anger in Gaza over the recent Israeli military operation that inflicted death, damage and destruction in the territory. Briefing reporters in New York via video-link from Gaza yesterday, he emphasized that ensuring accountability and restoring the local economy are the main ways to make certain the conflict does not create more extremists. “People are increasingly angry about what has happened here. That is perfectly understandable. But we want to channel the emotions now into something constructive and positive,” Mr. Ging noted. read more

Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the

TORONTO — Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the coming week:Sparking power and controversy: Hydro One will release its second-quarter results Tuesday. It’s the company’s first earnings report since it bought U.S. utility Avista Corp. for C$6.7 billion last month. The takeover has been controversial, as it would see Hydro One assume ownership of a coal-burning plant in Montana after Ontario weaned itself off the fuel.Let’s make a deal: The Ontario Securities Commission will hold a hearing Wednesday to decide whether to approve a settlement with Home Capital. In June, the mortgage lender struck a $11-million agreement to settle its case with the OSC involving allegations of misleading disclosure about falsified information on loan applications.Seeking direction: Aimia is set to release its second-quarter results Wednesday after markets close with a conference call the next day. Investors and analysts will be looking for answers after a bruising few months during which Air Canada announced it was not renewing its Aeroplan contract with the marketing firm. It has lost 80 per cent of share value since.The bottom line: Other corporate earnings to take note of this week include Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Quebecor, Canadian Tire, Manulife and Sun Life.The economic docket: There’s not a lot of economic data to push the needle this week, but for the junkies there’s building permits and housing starts on Wednesday followed by the new housing price index Thursday. read more

WatchWhat keeps me up at night Why Trumps trade czar is so

His fear involves America’s treasure trove of corporate research being taken by China — by its spies, by its state-funded corporate takeovers, and by forced mergers and technology transfers as the cost of doing business with Beijing.“If you (ask me) what keeps me awake at night, that’s what keeps me awake at night,” Lighthizer told the U.S. Senate finance committee on Thursday.The Ohio-born trade lawyer rose in the Washington ranks decades ago as a staffer on the very committee where he testified Thursday; later, in the 1980s, he became a Reagan administration official who negotiated limits on steel imports, which he now credits with saving parts of the American industry.Lighthizer told colleagues their careers will be judged by how they deal with China-related challenges. And he made clear his lack of patience with Economics 101 lectures involving Adam Smith.Anyone suggesting governments leave the market to Smith’s “invisible hand” ignores that the market is already being meddled with, he said, by countries using state power to assist favoured industries and hurt Americans.He cited rust-belt communities now gripped by the opioid crisis. He said the threat continues: China established a policy in 2006 to dominate world solar-panel production — and within a few years the U.S. industry had disappeared.Now the new China 2025 policy calls for dominance in 10 high-tech industries including aviation, robotics and energy-efficient vehicles.“This is not our spies (telling us this). They put this out,” he said.He said the Chinese state-directed system will always be unique, and some behaviours will not change; Trump’s directive mentions hacking of companies and strict conditions on U.S. firms that want to do business in China.But Lighthizer said the U.S. can impose costs on certain behaviours and try to mitigate their impact: “We can at least be in a position where U.S. industry isn’t wiped out. … And if we don’t do that, then shame on us.”Here’s one well-known example of the attempt to affect Chinese behaviour: steel tariffs.Lighthizer said the goal of these controversial tariffs, ultimately, is to change the market and press the Chinese to reduce their production. He said other international efforts have failed: “So you try to make it expensive for China to have excess capacity — that’s what we’re trying to do… Then you work closely with our allies.”On that score, he made a surprise announcement, on the eve of the steel tariffs taking effect. In addition to exemptions for Canada and Mexico, he announced the European Union, Australia, Argentina, Brazil and South Korea would also get an initial pass.Total chaos on trade isn’t going to create a single red, white and blue job in AmericaDemocrat Ron Wyden Win McNamee/Getty Images It’s this kind of apparent improvisation that has Washington worried.Congressional Republicans are pushing back on the substance of Trump’s trade moves; the Democrats are primarily denouncing the style. The top Democrat on the committee told Lighthizer he was concerned about the process.Trump launched the steel-tariff process last year; just before the expiry date, months later than expected, he began reviewing tariff rates; he reportedly raised the rate to 25 per cent from 23 per cent because he wanted a nice round number; then he started handing out national exemptions up until the last minute.“More of the same: chaos,” said Democrat Ron Wyden.“The tariffs are scheduled to go into effect tomorrow. … Total chaos on trade isn’t going to create a single red, white and blue job in America… We are counting on you to be a cool head in the middle of a very overheated atmosphere.”Lighthizer denied the chaos.He also denied being cool: “Being referred to as a cool head is an unusual experience for me.”To wit, he got into some tense exchanges Thursday. Lighthizer apologized for referring to one Democrat’s opinion as “nonsense,” and snapped back when another Democrat chided Trump for making up trade stats with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.Lighthizer defended a boss who shares his instincts on trade, if not the same mastery of its details.“Listen, I’m a Trump supporter,” Lighthizer said. “I love the president.”As for the Chinese government, that’s another story. When his microphone temporarily went dead, one Democrat joked it might have been Russian meddling. To which Lighthizer replied: “I think it’s more likely the Chinese for me.” WASHINGTON — It was President Donald Trump who announced a broad trade offensive against China on Thursday, with wide-ranging tariffs, an international lawsuit and investment restrictions to combat alleged theft of Americans’ intellectual property.It was his trade czar, however, who made the most elaborate argument for them.Stocks were sent sputtering by the prospective clash of economic giants, trade wonks muttered that the American salvo lacked a planned exit strategy and China vowed retaliation over the threatened 25 per cent U.S. duty on high-tech products: “China would fight to the end … with all necessary measures.”Trump orders $50 billion tariff hit on Chinese goods as trade war fears escalateChina had to intervene to curb a rout in its $7.7 trillion stock market this morning, sources sayChina urges America to pull back from the ‘brink’ as trade war loomsMeanwhile, Robert Lighthizer was testifying before Congress. A self-described curmudgeon, best known for his elbows-up negotiating style on NAFTA, Lighthizer confided that his biggest fear is far removed from issues involving Canada and Mexico.Robert Lighthizer’s fear involves America’s treasure trove of corporate research being taken by China by its spies, by its state-funded corporate takeovers, and by forced mergers and technology transfers as the cost of doing business with Beijing. read more

Knockout that left Montreal boxer in coma prompts questions in medical community

MONTREAL — One of the doctors who worked the boxing match Saturday night in Quebec City that left Adonis Stevenson hospitalized in an induced coma said he and his colleagues are at a loss to medically justify the sport.The goal of boxing is to inflict damage on the opponent, often by knocking him unconscious. And that carries important risks for severe head trauma, Jean Dore said.“I can’t say we can justify it,” Dore said in an interview. “It’s a question a lot of doctors are asking, especially doctors within the sport.”As of Monday evening, Stevenson, the 41-year-old Montreal-based fighter known to his fans as “Superman,” remained in intensive care in a Quebec City hospital after a knockout by Oleksandr Gvozdyk of the Ukraine. In a statement, the hospital described the fighter’s condition as stable.Despite his misgivings, Dore said he prefers to remain ringside rather than leave the sport.One of his patients was New Brunswick boxer David Whittom, who died last March after being in an induced coma for 10 months following a knockout blow.Dore chooses to keep attending fights, he said, “to better manage the situation and to try to prevent these events.” On Saturday, Dore was a backup physician and did not directly care for Stevenson.Dr. Charles Tator, a neurosurgery professor at University of Toronto and a director at Canadian Concussion Centre, said it pains him to watch boxing.“I can’t really watch combat sports because it bothers me so much when I see the direct hits to the head,” he said in an interview.He said its “tragic” that people willingly get into the ring.“There’s so many hits to the head that could be damaging, that I can’t take it as a brain surgeon, knowing what happens inside,” Tator continued.Alain Ptito, a brain trauma expert at McGill University’s Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, said it is impossible to make the sport safe.“When you are knocking out someone, you are essentially damaging their brain,” he said in an interview.A fighter who stumbles and crashes onto the mat after a knockout punch has suffered trauma to the area around the brain stem, which governs vigilance and consciousness, he explained.Injuries are cumulative, Ptito added, meaning the more one gets hit in the head, the greater the likelihood they will have an early degenerative disease.“Boxing should be abolished as a sport,” he said. “I wouldn’t hesitate to say that.”But any pressure by doctors to ban boxing would trigger resistance from those who say government has no place interfering with consenting adults who understand the risks of professional boxing.In Montreal, one of the top boxing cities on the continent, the pushback would be particularly strong, said TSN 690 boxing analyst Matt Casavant.Fighters such as Lucian Bute, Jean Pascal, and Stevenson are major sporting figures in the city and are embraced by fans, said Casavant, who also works bouts as a cutman treating fighters between rounds.Boxing transcends sport, in part because of the storylines of troubled men who make something of their lives, Casavant said. Stevenson, for instance, served jail time for being a pimp. The boxer has in the past credited boxing for turning his life around.“These fighters, especially in North American culture — do not necessarily choose this path,” Casavant said. “This is their best way of getting out of trouble — of making a living for their family. Boxing knows what it is. It’s not trying to hide the fact it has big-time risks and health concerns.”Sylvera “Sly” Louis, co-owner of Underdog Boxing Gym in downtown Montreal, said boxing changed his life.“Boxing lets me express my anger — my anger and my desire to create and to compete,” he said in an interview. “It allows me to be nice (outside the ring.)”Louis, 36, who still competes professionally, said seeing what happened to Stevenson was a reminder of the dangers of the ring. “Sometimes when I’ve gotten hit, my ego will want to pretend that it didn’t hurt me,” he said. “We’re all proud and sometimes our pride can get us hurt.”Louis started boxing at 16, and he says it makes him happy to see people he’s come up with over the years doing well, thanks in large part to the sport.“We’re not in jail and we’re not dead,” he said. “Some have families and most are doing good.”— With files from Gregory Strong, The Canadian Press.Giuseppe Valiante, The Canadian Press read more

New life for rescued Leitrim dogs as they are rehomed

first_imgTHE DOGS WHO were saved in the biggest canine rescue in the history of the State have been rehomed, the ISPCA said today.In total, 140 dogs were rescued in a joint operation by the ISPCA, Leitrim Animal Welfare, Dogs Trust and County Veterinary Offices.Grace O’Brien of the ISPCA told TheJournal.ie that the dogs left in their care have found homes, though some may need to be neutered first. There may also be homechecks pending before the dogs can leave the premises.Four of the dogs. Pic: ISPCAThe ISPCA has a procedure in place for animals in its care who are rehomed, including having them neutered and microchipped. As small dogs tend to be easy to home, these dogs found homes quite quickly.The dogs were found in deplorable conditions in a rural area of Leitrim, with urine, faeces, sawdust and mud embedded in their fur. One of the rescued dogs had to have its eye removed.The person who owned the dogs was believed to be a dog hoarder, who was making efforts to feed the dogs. However the situation spiralled out of control, the ISPCA said.One of the rescued dogs, Jin, before being groomed. Pic: ISPCAISPCA Chief inspector Conor Dowling commented:Many of the animals were also suffering from eye problems and one had to have an eye removed, while the ISPCA was forced to put another animal to sleep, which is hugely disappointing, while being a mercy there wasn’t more than one.Read: 140 dogs saved in biggest canine rescue in State history>last_img read more

Thinking of buying a puppy for Christmas Heres why you shouldnt

first_imgThinking of buying a puppy for Christmas? Here’s why you shouldn’t The ISPCA has warned people to wait until January to avoid funding puppy farms where dogs can be kept in “appalling conditions”. THE ISPCA HAS issued a warning to people considering buying a puppy to not support puppy farms in the run up to Christmas.The organisation has said the coming weeks mark “the busiest time for rogue breeders advertising puppies for sale and buyers need to beware and understand where these puppies are originating from”.In a statement the ISPCA noted: “Many puppies are bred in appalling conditions, are not vaccinated or microchipped and may be in need of veterinary care.”The organisation said it has saved hundreds of puppies from “deplorable conditions”, noting dogs sometimes have no access to daylight, have inappropriate bedding and are cooped up in a small kennel or breeding cage.“In the worst cases there is limited food or access to clean drinking water with minimal human interaction or veterinary care.They arrive at our centres terrified, often huddled together silently. After extensive veterinary treatment and rehabilitation, the ISPCA finds loving homes for these puppies where they will receive the love and kindness they deserve.The ISPCA is encouraging people to adopt a dog after the festive season to reduce the risk of supporting this “cruel trade”, adding: “Buying a sick puppy is a heartbreaking experience for any family to endure, especially at Christmas.”ISPCA CEO Dr Andrew Kelly said puppy breeding in Ireland is big business and the organisation needs the public’s help to reduce the demand.Large numbers of puppies are bred in Ireland, taken far too early from their mothers to be sold in Ireland or shipped illegally to the UK where they will be sold to unsuspecting families purely for profit with no regard for their welfare. Many of these puppies have had a very unpleasant start in life, sold to people who believe they are purchasing a healthy and happy puppy. Unfortunately they may have purchased a sick puppy, sometimes diagnosed with the contagious and often fatal parvovirus.‘Don’t be hoodwinked’ Broadcaster and ISPCA supporter Charlie Bird shared his own experience with rogue breeders to raise awareness.“Please don’t be hoodwinked or fooled by rogue breeders like my wife and I were. We decided to buy a puppy from a breeder in Cork whose website seemed great. We visited the sellers at their house in Cork and were led to believe that they had reared the puppies in their house.We asked all the right questions. We asked to see the father of the puppies and were told that he had tragically been run over. This was not true.Bird said they were “horrified to find out that it was in fact a large-scale puppy farm with almost 100 breeding females”.The ISPCA notes that pets “never make good Christmas gifts and should never be bought on a whim or given as a surprise”.If you’re thinking of buying a dog, here is their advice:Don’t buy a puppy from unscrupulous breeders fuelling demand – do your researchAlways try to adopt from the ISPCA, your local rescue or dog poundReport suspicious activity onlineCheck if the seller is a registered commercial breeder and check the local authority registration detailsReputable breeders do not advertise puppies for sale through online websites, pet shops or newspaper adverts, or meet at petrol stations, car parks or at the side of a roadCheck websites have signed up to the Pet Advertising Advisory Group (IPAAG) minimum standardsAlways ask to see both parents of the puppy interacting with the litter. If you’re told this can’t happen, ask whyResponsible breeders will want to do a home check and ask you important questions about your lifestyle in order to ensure you are a suitable owner for their puppyAsk to see where mother, father and puppies are living. If you are concerned by excuses made as to why the parents are not there, don’t buy a puppy out of guiltWarning signals include other dogs hidden from sight in nearby sheds or if can you hear loud music playing to drown out the barking noiseAlso check if there is a lot of traffic coming and going from the property and if someone actually lives thereAsk to see the puppies’ veterinary records for vaccinations and parasite treatments, microchipping certificate, etcEnsure you obtain a proper receiptBe cautious of large numbers of puppies for sale online using the same adverts/phone numbersRead: Quiet, hungry’ puppies shipped from Dublin Port will soon need new homesRead: Wooden crates for housing dogs “no longer in use” at dog breeding farm in Cavan Saturday 26 Nov 2016, 5:00 PM By Órla Ryan Image: ISPCA Share2400 Tweet Email 17 Comments Short URL Nov 26th 2016, 5:00 PM Image: ISPCA http://jrnl.ie/3102061 19,749 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Wonder Woman Adds Another Awesome Woman

first_img2017 is shaping up to be a pretty great year for genre movie fans. With Get Out and Logan enjoying critical and box office success, this year is off to an unusually strong start for science fiction, comic book movies, and horror flicks. And with the constant stream of exciting news coming out this week, there’s a chance that trend could continue.Let’s start with Wonder Woman, the movie many fans are holding out as the DCEU’s last best hope for relevance. Let’s face it, DC’s films haven’t been all that great so far. That said, there’s reason to be hopeful about Wonder Woman. First of all, she had the best (only good?) scene in Batman v. Superman. Second, every trailer so far has looked really cool. Now, we can add another reason to the list. Director Patty Jenkins (Monster… oh yeah, that’s another reason) confirmed that boxer Ann Wolfe will appear in the film. She’ll be playing Artemis. The legend @AnnWolfeBoxing is our Artemis!! Who else should be one of the greatest warrior Amazons, but the best female boxer in history. https://t.co/RfQAF2YnxY— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) March 12, 2017Artemis is the toughest warrior of the Amazons. Over her long comics history, she has been both an enemy and friend to Diana. She even took on the Wonder Woman costume herself at one point. Wolfe is considered the toughest, hardest-hitting athlete in women’s boxing. Jenkins isn’t kidding when she calls her the best female boxer in history.  Having her play Artemis seems like perfect casting. You can catch a glimpse of her in the latest trailer.In other casting news, it seems Harrison Ford isn’t the only one returning for Ridley Scott and Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner sequel. During an interview with The TRENDTalk Show, Edward James Olmos revealed that he’ll reprise his role as Gaff in Blade Runner 2049. Previously, stories went around that he wouldn’t appear in the film, but that’s because everyone involved signed a “seven-page nondisclosure conference.”“I couldn’t talk about it. I couldn’t talk about it to anybody,” Olmos said. “Guess what? This is the first time that I’m telling the whole world that yes, I am going to be Gaff in Blade Runner 2049.”Olmos went on to compare his role in the new movie to the one he has in the original. In the new movie, Ryan Gosling plays Officer K, who’s tracking down old replicants, including Deckard? His investigation, much like Deckard’s did, leads him to Gaff. Just not as many times.“That time, I only had four scenes. In this, I only have one. But again, it’s a poignant little scene,” Olmos said. That certainly sounds promising.Edward James Olmos in Blade Runner. (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube/Warner Bros.)Hey, speaking of digging up and rebooting the great movies of your youth… The Matrix! They’re rebooting it. Why? Because hey, people sure like the first one. Do you like cinematic universes? Doesn’t matter, we’re getting one. It’s working out so well for Warner Bros.’ DC movies, after all. Check out Jordan Minor’s story for more information and advice on what you should do instead of watching whatever this turns out to be.Finally, lets close out with some good movie news. Remember The Babadoook? That visually stylish and absolutely terrifying horror movie from 2014? Director Jennifer Kent has begun work on her second film, The Nightingale, according to Deadline. The Nightingale is a period thriller set in 1825 Tasmania. This time, it sounds like Kent is abandoning the supernatural in favor of a more human horror.The film will center on an Irish convict whose family is murdered by a soldier and his men. The men aren’t punished, so she joins up with an Aboriginal man as her guide to track the soldiers through the wilderness. Tracking down and murdering corrupt soldiers in the Tasmanian wilderness sounds like a great recipe for a horror film. If the visual design is anywhere near what The Babadook‘s was, we’re in for a truly scary treat when the film comes out later this year.last_img read more

Portland man gets seven years in shooting at Motel 6

first_imgA Portland man who shot at another man at a Vancouver motel in December was sentenced Monday to more than seven years in prison.Kristopher M. Turner, 24, pleaded guilty in Clark County Superior Court to second-degree assault and unlawful possession of a weapon in connection with the Dec. 26 shooting at Motel 6. He was originally facing attempted first-degree murder but that charge was amended as part of a plea deal.Turner was arrested in January on a warrant in connection with the shooting.Vancouver police were called about 2:25 a.m. to the motel at 221 N.E. Chkalov Drive for a report of a gunshot heard on the premises. The night manager said she heard a single gunshot from above the manager’s office, looked outside and saw a man, later identified as the victim, Ronnie Wynn, walk to the parking lot and then return to the room, according to an affidavit of probable cause.Police contacted Wynn and his wife inside the room. Wynn said he came there to see his wife, but when he arrived, he found Turner inside the room. Turner confronted Wynn and pointed a semiautomatic handgun at his head, the affidavit said.Turner tried to fire at him twice, Wynn said, though the handgun didn’t actually fire the first time. Wynn said Turner tried again, and he ducked as a single round missed him. He then ran away, the court document states.last_img read more

Facebook expects an FTC fine of 3 billion to 5 billion over

first_img 14 Facebook Share your voice Comments Internet Services Tech Industry Alexander Pohl/Getty Images Facebook’s long list of scandals has only grown longer this year. Those troubles finally hit the social network where it matters: earnings.The social network said Wednesday it’s set aside $3 billion to cover possible expenses for a possible fine related to an ongoing investigation by the US Federal Trade Commission. The yet-unannounced FTC fine, which Facebook said could be as high as $5 billion, would be the largest ever by the agency against a US tech company.The FTC is looking into Facebook’s privacy practices and determining if the company violated a legal agreement to keep user data private. The consumer watchdog began investigating Facebook after revelations surfaced last year that UK consultancy Cambridge Analytica harvested the data of as many as 87 million users without their permission.Read also: Is Sony’s robot dog Aibo a privacy nightmare?The legal costs, which Facebook revealed as part of its first-quarter earnings, took a bite out of its performance. Facebook earned 85 cents per share, a little more than half of the $1.61 per share analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters had forecast. Still, Facebook’s scandals didn’t scare away advertisers or users. The company posted a better-than-expected $15.08 billion in sales in the first quarter and reported the number of users who logged on every month increased by 8%, to 2.38 billion. The company said that performance would have generated $1.89 in earnings per share if it hadn’t had to set aside money for the fine. Facebook shares jumped more than 5% to $192.60 per share in after-hours trading. Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst at eMarketer, said Facebook remained the place to reach consumers despite its problems.”Advertisers continue to be stuck on Facebook, despite its many challenges,” eMarketer analyst Debra Aho Williamson said in a statement. “What they care most about is its vast user base and its targeting capabilities, and both are continuing to provide strong performance for them.”During a conference call, Facebook executives declined to share details about the FTC investigation because it was ongoing. If Facebook’s estimates are correct, the FTC fine would be larger than the record-setting $22.5 million the agency imposed on Google in 2012.Facebook’s earnings come less than a week before F8, its annual developer conference. The two-day event kicks off on April 30 in San Jose, and Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to delivering the keynote.Privacy and SafetyFacebook’s privacy woes aren’t the only troubles at the world’s largest social network.Critics assailed Facebook after it failed to control video of a gunman who livestreamed a terrorist attack at a mosque in New Zealand. Content moderators have complained about working conditions at Facebook and the toll the job takes on their mental health. The social network has been trying to prove it’s doing more to combat these issues with the help of technology.Zuckerberg said during the conference call that the company’s only hope to flag offensive posts in real time is building a system powered by artificial intelligence so that it doesn’t have to rely on user reports and moderators.About 99 percent of terrorist propaganda that Facebook takes down is flagged by the company’s AI systems. The social network is trying to be more proactive about identifying other offensive content such as hate speech, violence and nudity. “The reactive model of waiting for people to flag them guarantees that by the time we get to look at an issue someone has already seen that content, which is not the state we want to be in,” Zuckerberg said during the call.The company currently releases transparency reports twice a year about the material it pulls down. Zuckerberg said he wanted to release that information every quarter, though he didn’t say when the company might begin reporting the data that way.Facebook also said its Stories feature, a Snapchat-like addition to the social network that allows users to post videos and posts that vanish in 24 hours, was being used by 500 million people every day.Originally published April 24, 1:15 p.m. PTUpdates, 1:38 p.m.: Adds more details; 1:45 p.m.: Includes analyst comment.  Tagslast_img read more

Though Power Outages Were Limited Harvey Revealed New Challenges For The Grid

first_img Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:04 Brien Straw | Houston Public MediaA view of the flooding from Harvey in Houston’s Kingwood neighborhood.The state’s electric grid fared pretty well throughout Hurricane Harvey, but the storm did reveal some new challenges.The Public Utility Commission of Texas said power outages during Harvey never topped 350,000 customers at any time. Which is pretty good, compared to the millions who lost power during Hurricane Ike.DeAnn Walker, who chairs the PUC, told a U.S. House committee that this time, there were other problems.“Many substations in our area flooded for the first time ever,” she said Thursday. Walker said that the response – moving in mobile electric substations – was also a first.“We’re looking at whether or not it’s prudent for the state as a whole – all of the utilities – to get together and purchase these mobile substations, to have on hand in such an event,” she said.The commission is exploring what Walker described as inconsistencies in how some utilities – specifically, those whose substations were flooded – reported power outages during the storm.“Once they had a plan to bring in the mobile substation, they took those outages and moved them to planned outages, so they were no longer showing up as being impacted by the hurricane,” Walker said. “I don’t think that’s an accurate representation.”Walker also said she’s asked the state to look into why utilities in the Panhandle and Far West Texas were never called in to help, even though they were physically closer than some of those from around the U.S. that did respond.

The LibreRouter project aims to make mesh networks simple and affordable

first_imgIn the city, we’re constantly saturated with the radio waves from 10 or 20 different routers, cell towers and other wireless infrastructure. But in rural communities there might only be one internet connection for a whole village. LibreRouter is a hardware and software project that looks to let those communities build their own modern, robust mesh networks to make the most of their limited connectivity.The intended use case is in situations where, say, a satellite or wired connection terminates at one point, the center of an area, but the people who need to use it live nearby — but well outside the hundred feet or so you can expect a Wi-Fi signal to travel. Often in such a case it’s also prohibitively expensive to run more wires or install cellular infrastructure.So instead of having people come to the signal, you bring the signal to them with a mesh network: a collection of interconnected wireless routers that pass signals to and from anyone who can reach one of them.This approach has its own problems: routers can be expensive and difficult to maintain or repair, and the network itself isn’t trivial to set up and troubleshoot either. Off-the-shelf routers and software aren’t the best options — so a team of concerned hackers have put together their own: LibreRouter, and LibreMesh, the software that runs on it.It’s not some groundbreaking device or fancy software — just purpose-built for use by communities like the ones they’ve tested with in rural Argentina, Mexico, Spain and Canada.The goal, as LibreRouter’s Nicolás Pace explained to APNIC, is to make mesh networks affordable, robust, scalable and simple to operate; they’re not all the way there, but they do have a working prototype and full software stack based on OpenWRT, a well-known and trusted wireless utility.They’ve designed the router itself to be modern and powerful, but easy to repair with normal tools and off-the-shelf parts; the software won’t quite be one-click simple, but it should automate many of the harder parts of configuring a mesh. The range on them is in the kilometers rather than meters, so these can really connect quite a large area.It’s all open source, of course, and the team is always looking for contributors. There’s enough interest, Pace said, that they might ship as many as 2,500 of the devices over the next couple of years once the design is finalized.last_img read more
