first_imgTodd Lamirande APTN NewsCanada’s Correctional Investigator said the number of Indigenous people locked up in prisons across the country is now a human rights issue.“That the incarceration rate for Indigenous people keeps climbing year after year after year, relentlessly,” said Zinger.Ivan Zinger released his latest report Tuesday and the bad news regarding the incarceration of Indigenous people continued.The statistics aren’t new.They show that more than a quarter of all inmates are First Nation, Metis or Inuit.And that female incarceration rates are at 38 per cent.And there are facts that don’t seem to change year after year.“Indigenous people are released much later in their sentences than non-Aboriginal, most of them at statutory release, which means two-thirds of their sentence,” he said.“They are in higher security typically. They’re more likely to be in segregation. And then when they do go out, they’re more likely to be suspended or revoked.”Zinger recommends increasing the number of agreements in two sections of the corrections and conditional release act.“These sections allow for the Minister of Public Safety to enter into agreements with Indigenous communities for the care, custody or supervision of Indigenous people by Indigenous communities,” he said.At the moment, this is done through healing lodges. There are nine of them across the country.“Our programs are run by the elders. And they are directed by the elders and the Indigenous communities,” said Claire Carefoot, director of the Buffalo Sage Wellness House. “So we’ll have more women who will come have access to their kids for one thing.Because their children can live here if they’re under school age.“And that is a big thing in itself.”Five are run by Corrections Canada and four are Aboriginal-run.But Zinger said there are gaps between the Indigenous run lodges and the ones operated by Corrections Canada that need to be closed.“Because right now they’re getting about 60 cents on the dollar. Funding them at the same rate would yield ultimately I believe better correctional outcomes.”Ralph Goodale, Canada’s minister of Public Safety issued a release about the report stating that the Liberals put $65.2 million over five years to address the over-representation of Indigenous people in prison.Contact Todd here: tlamirande@aptn.calast_img read more

Autumn officially arrived nine days ago. But Tuesday evening, Canada’s unofficial favourite season arrives at 7 p.m. when the puck drops, on hockey season.The NHL begins with a rivalry for the ages the Toronto Maple Leafs in Montreal, to face the Canadiens and here in Southern Ontario, hopes are high for the Maple Leafs.Scot Urquhart reports from deep in the heart of Leafs Nation at Wendel Clark’s in Burlington.It’s the longest drought in the NHL between Stanley Cups at 45 years, and as always, Leafs fans are hoping that this year, will finally end that span of futility.1967 was the last time the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup, and we thought we’d show some of that championship season to you, as a large number of leafs fans, are too young to remember it!I’m not one of them. I remember it clearly.But there are some good signs for the current crop of Leafs as the team made the playoffs last year, and took finalist Boston to seven games.And with some new bodies in new places, the team and its fans are looking for more this year.The team wrapped up a deal with top scoring winger Phil Kessel earlier Tuesday, signing him to an eight year, $64 million contract extension.They’ve also got Cody Franson and Nazem Kadri signed for the season. And they’ve added some talented newcomers like Morgan Rielly, and Carter Ashton.But they will start the season without one of their prize acquisitions. Winger David Clarkson is out for the first ten games due to a suspension for his part in a wild brawl with the Buffalo Sabres a week ago.And in goal, it looks as though the Leafs will start incumbent James Reimer in game one; he took them to the playoffs last year, and posted the best pre-season numbers.While prize off-season acquisition Jonathon Bernier, who comes over from the Los Angeles Kings, will probably get the call Wednesday night in Philadelphia.In any case, the Leafs bandwagon is warming up and already some fans are ready to jump on board.The puck drops on the biggest rivalry in the NHL right after we finish the evening news. And although the teams have played each other more than 700 times, the over all record may be closer than you’d think, especially considering that Montreal has won more Stanley Cups than any other team and Toronto hasn’t won one in 45 years. Despite that, Montreal has the edge 328 wins to 288 losses against the Leafs; remarkably close considering the number of decades these two have been playing against one another and yet another indication that both teams save their best hockey for this incredible rivalry. 00:00:00 | 00:00:00::Projekktor V1.3.09 read more

first_imgSILVIO BERLUSCONI’S APPEAL trial against a conviction for paying for sex with an underage prostitute opened has opened without the former premier, who was doing community service for a separate tax fraud conviction.The 77-year-old former premier was sentenced last year to seven years in jail and banned from holding public office for having sex with “Ruby the Heart Stealer” at what prosecutors described as erotic parties at his luxury home.A definitive guilty verdict could hamper Berlusconi’s liberty: while Italy tends to be lenient towards over-70s found guilty of non-violent crimes, the billionaire would no longer be eligible for community service and would likely be sentenced to house arrest.The media mogul has been forced to drop the lawyers who defended him in the trial, after they were caught up in a witness corruption probe launched amid allegations of bribes paid to girls taking the stand to defend Berlusconi.Forty-five people are under investigation, including Berlusconi, his lawyers, Ruby and several other young women.The three-time premier has repeatedly denied having sex in 2010 with then 17-year-old exotic dancer Ruby — whose real name is Karima El-Mahroug — during parties that witnesses said featured nudity and strippers dressed as nuns.El-Mahroug told the first trial about attending “sensual” soirees that invitees nicknamed “bunga bunga” in a discotheque at Berlusconi’s villa, saying she was paid €2,000 or €3,000 euros a night — but she also denied having sex with the tycoon.Berlusconi says they were “normal dinner parties” followed by “burlesque contests”.He was also found guilty of abusing his powers by having an aide call a police station to press for the busty glamour girl’s release from custody when she was arrested for suspected theft. A carabiniere stands in the court during the Silvio Belusconi appeal trial in Milan Source: AP/Press Association ImagesHis defence claimed he believed El-Mahroug was the niece of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and wanted to avoid a diplomatic incident, but prosecutors insisted that was a bid to conceal their relationship.The punishment was suspended during the appeals process, which is expected to last months.The first appeal hearing was expected to be dedicated to technical issues. A verdict is expected in September or October, after which the case is likely to go to the Supreme court, according to Italian media reports.Berlusconi — who was definitively convicted for tax fraud last year — was absent from court because he was performing his community service, which involves helping out weekly in a hospice for Alzheimer’s patients.Read: Court to decide if Berlusconi will be placed under house arrest >Read: Silvio Berlusconi expelled from Italian Parliament but vows to “fight on” >© -AFP 2014last_img read more

first_img 1 2 After Marissa Mayer left Google to steady the flailing Good Ship Yahoo, the moves she made could either be considered that of an industrial internet genius, or that of a crazy person looking to make a splash. It’s still way too early to figure out the effect she’ll have on Yahoo, but her wheeling and dealing keeps rolling along. Now, Yahoo purchased Tumblr (as you may have seen reported from every single source on the entire internet today) for a grand sum of $1.1 billion. As any developer will tell you, Tumblr is messy. As any person embedded deep within the internet-media scene will attest, Tumblr doesn’t seem to know how to run itself. For $1.1 billion, those are some of the headaches Yahoo just purchased, but what else is Yahoo getting with their acquisition of Tumblr? Content that is anywhere from truly great, to the worst content the history of mankind has ever generated. You be the judge:Twitter the ComicPerhaps the destiny of webcomics, Twitter the Comic scours the 140-character social network for, as the Tumblr puts it, “the greatest tweets of our generation,” and illustrates them into a comic. The majority of them are very, very good. So good, in fact, that it’s frustrating they’re not coming from the same writer, because you can’t go find other works created by what would be that one, brilliant mind.Selleck Waterfall SandwichPerhaps this Tumblr, which exclusively covers a topic that you can probably guess from the name, is why Yahoo was so interested in purchasing the blogging platform. Before the $1.1 billion acquisition, Yahoo was sorely lacking in the Tom-Selleck-with-sandwiches-and-waterfalls area of the internet. Now they run a monopoly.White Boys in Salmon ShortsThere are many single-serving Tumblrs dedicated to pointing out a certain fashion trend, silly or otherwise. White Boys in Salmon Shorts is currently the fashion Tumblr to rule them all. The trend is now so widespread that even The Onion wrote a little diddy about the pervasive style. If you’re reading this while wearing a pair of salmon pants, don’t feel too badly, as some of us may have actually written this with their arms coming out of the sleeves of a salmon shirt.National Geographic FoundOut of the very large group of ridiculous Tumblrs, National Geographic’s Found is the sophisticated beacon standing tall amongst the single-serving, internet meme rubble. Found is simple; it posts tasteful images throughout Nat Geo’s history, often giving us a colorized look at what life was like many decades ago.Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other ThingsFor all of the OCD-enabling Tumblrs out there, Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things has a leg up on the common OCD Tumblr theme of neatly arranged objects. Rather than, for example neatly arranged, color-coordinated crayons, this Tumblr features the coincidence of everyday objects that have no relation to one other having eerily similar dimensions.last_img read more

first_imgTwitter : près de sept messages sur dix ignorés sur le réseau socialÉtats-Unis – Bien que Twitter revendique plus de 160 millions d’inscrits, le réseau social peut se poser des questions. Une étude montre que sept messages sur dix publiés dans ses pages ne sont pas commentés. Juste un problème de contenu ?Twitter clamait récemment haut et fort que ses utilisateurs publient quotidiennement 90 millions de messages. On se doutait déjà que tous ne peuvent pas être intéressants, mais une étude de Sysomos montre que ce ne sont pas moins de 70% d’entre eux qui ne provoquent aucune réaction. Ce bilan conclut les observations menées durant deux mois sur un total de 1,2 milliard de tweets. 23% de ces messages ont bénéficié d’au moins une réponse.

Minister Ferreira Says Peoples National CleanUp Day in October

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 26, 2017 – Nassau – Minister of the Environment & Housing, the Hon. Romauld Ferreira, announced in the House of Assembly, September 20, that his Ministry is fulfilling the first of the Government’s promises, quoted in its public 2017 Manifesto, “to inaugurate the People’s National Clean-Up Day,” launched through the Ministry’s National Clean-Up Plan to start off in New Providence during October 2017, then extend out to the Family Islands “in an island-specific way.”During his House address, the Minister remarked: “Mr. Speaker, I grew upon a clapboard house at the foot of Kemp Road.   We had a broom for sweeping the yard, in fact all of the neighbours did; and every Saturday we did sweep the yard.“Today we live in a Bahamas where we have become accustomed to waste.   Whether derelict vehicles, fridges, stoves, or bulk waste, there is garbage everywhere.   This problem did not happen overnight nor will the fix be overnight, but it is a journey we must all take together.”Minister Ferreira said the theme of the Clean-Up Campaign will be “Keep Our Bahamas Beautiful” and is designed to encourage everyone to “Keep The Bahamas Clean, Green, and Pristine” by appealing to Bahamian pride in our country.   The theme implores cleanliness in our communities by reminding our people to ‘Be A Hero And Put It In The Can Man.’“The campaign will be executed in a five-phase approach with the goal to fully clean New Providence and maintain its cleanliness, and improve the general aesthetics.   New Providence has been divided into five zones and each zone correlates with a phase,” said Minister Ferreira.He explained that each phase will encompasses the constituencies or zones as follows:“Phase 1: Bain Town, Grants Town, St. Barnabas, Englerston and Centerville;Phase 2: Bamboo Town, Pinewood, Nassau Village, South Beach, Sea Breeze, and Fox Hill;Phase 3: Marathon, Freetown, St. Anne’s, Fox Hill, and Elizabeth;Phase 4: Fort Charlotte, Mount Mariah and Killarney; andPhase 5: Golden Isles, Southern Shores, Tall Pines, Garden Hills, Bamboo Town, Golden Gates, Carmichael and South Beach.”Minister Ferreira added: “the Clean-Up Campaign will require the full commitment and involvement of communities and stakeholders.   It will include the removal of garbage, appliances, furniture, derelict vehicles, rodents, and vegetation from lots and lot clearances.”Additionally, the Ministry anticipates that the success of the initiative will translate into the speedy and effective removal of waste; efficient monitoring; ongoing public awareness and education; and enforcement.   The Ministry will partner with media to get the message out.   And there will also be school outreach in hopes that educating the children will mean they will educate the adults they live with at home.“To brand our messages, the project will employ the use of a mascot, which will signal to Bahamians the source of the message disseminated, and the expected environmental content.   Posters for billboards will feature everyday people and celebrities and will be strategically placed at selected roundabouts throughout New Providence,” said Minister Ferreira.“The secret of an effective clean-up campaign is a good enforcement programme.   Appreciating this fact, there will be collaboration with the Health Inspectorate Division of the Department of Environmental Health Services, the Royal Bahamas Police Force, Ministry of Works, Ministry of Agriculture, and Community Leaders who we expect to eventually take the lead in keeping their communities clean, green, & pristine.  We also expect to receive corporate sponsorship and buy-in.”The Clean-Up Campaign is a voluntary event and all citizens and residents alike are asked to join in the community clean-up next month.By: Gena Gibbs (BIS)Photo Caption:  Minister of The Environment & Housing, the Hon.

Man attacked in gas station near SDSU

first_imgMan attacked in gas station near SDSU June 10, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Two men beat and stabbed another man inside a gas station adjacent to San Diego State University’s campus late Saturday, fled the scene, then returned in time to be greeted by police, an officer said.Around 9:50 p.m., a 29-year-old man walked into the ARCO station at the intersection of College Avenue and Montezuma Road and, apparently having been involved in some kind of altercation, asked the clerk to call police, Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department said.While the man was in the store, two men walked in and first physically attacked him, then stabbed him once in the back and once in the arm before leaving the gas station.The two suspects returned while police were at the scene, and were arrested.The suspect who stabbed the victim was identified as 57-year-old Milton Lewis, and the suspect involved in the beating was identified as 25-year- old Abdul Mohammad, Heims said.Both were being held at San Diego Central Jail.The victim’s injuries were not considered life-threatening, and he was not taken to a hospital, Heims said.

Public comment starts Sept. 23 and will be open for 30 days; all public comment will be sent to the federal highway and transit authorities.last_img read more

first_imgThe basic definition of an ad portal is a technology that allows advertisers and agencies to submit files electronically. In reality, though, ad portal technology varies widely from Web-based to application and software-based systems; from portals that simply handle the submission process to ones that are fully integrated with trafficking and billing systems. Here, Folio: takes a look at some different examples, as well as how ad portal technology in general is evolving.Varying Forms of Ad PortalsSome publishers use an ad portal provided by their printer or third party pre-press vendor, which is especially helpful for companies that don’t manage their own ad production, according to Peter Meirs, vice president of production technologies at Time Inc. His company, which does manage its own ad production, uses a standalone portal provider called VIO. Currently, the portal is application-based, which means advertisers need to download and continually update software. However, he says the company plans to switch to a Web-based portal once the technology becomes available through VIO.“If [publishers] have a large number of ads coming from a relatively small number of sources, an application may be a better choice than a Web service,” Meirs says. “If their suppliers are far ranging and include international advertisers, it’s wise to consider a Web-based solution.” Cathy Merolle, director of production operations at Hearst magazines, says more and more publishers are adopting Web-based portals. Her company launched its Web-based portal with its pre-press provider HudsonYards this February. After six months, she says some titles have almost 70 percent of their ads coming in through the portal with the goal to make that 100 percent for all magazines by the end of the year.“Driving automation is the mission,” she says. “We consider the portal as a major first step in the pursuit of our ultimate goal of proofless printing.”According to Merolle, it’s important to keep it simple. “We wanted the ad submitter to go through a minimal amount of clicks before actual uploading, and not have to navigate through multiple screens.” Since launch, Hearst has added enhancements such as links to the SWOP site, a downloadable G7 color bar, alerts on proofing requirements and a Pay-Pal-type offering in case advertisers want to purchase proofs.Niche Media recently signed on to the SendMyAd service, which allows advertisers to see and fix problems with their preflighted ads right away, instead of receiving a rejection e-mail later. “Day-to-day productivity has increased, and as the ad volume has increased, the portal has absorbed a great deal of the workload,” says Niche’s director of manufacturing Shawn Lowe. “Only the good ads come in, the bad ones are the advertisers’ problem.”Since launching a portal, Lowe says the company has saved 25 percent in cost and time. Since signing up for the SendMyAd platform, he says savings have increased to 40 percent. Paula Gordon, director of manufacturing at Reed Business Information, says her company has also seen significant savings with its portal, developed with printer Fry Communications. She says RBI has eliminated five to 10 positions related to preflight specifically. Who Is Using It?Ad portals allow publishers to reduce cycle time, minimize expense and gain control of—while taking a step back from—the ad submission process. Yet, 76 percent of publishers are still not using them, according to Folio:’s 2008 Manufacturing and Production Trends survey [see page 44]. Why the hesitation?“Basically, cultural and control issues,” says Scott Pellicone, vice president of business development at Quebecor World Premedia. “Publishers are still very protective of their advertising clients and are extremely cautious when deploying any customer facing technologies.”At Fry Communications, less than 1 percent of its total number of clients are working with ad portals, but that number jumps to 30 to 35 percent among larger clients with 7 to 10 publications, according to senior pre-press manager Mark Stoner. Where It’s HeadingAt Hearst, the next step is developing a system to automate the process through the supply chain using JDF. “Also, we will want to develop a system that will capture and embed additional metadata to help publishers manage their files for digital asset management and digital rights managements,” says Merolle. According to her, more and more publishers will be looking to connect their portals to other internal systems.Meirs says this is a big area of opportunity for portal companies, which could someday help facilitate the digital exchange of both production and insertion order information along with the ad files themselves between ad suppliers and publishers. SIDEBAR:TechInsights Launches Online Portal for Ad BuyersUp next: Preflight checks. United Business Media’s TechInsights group, which includes brands such as EE Times and TechOnline, has launched an online portal that allows customers to independently search and buy ad packages among its more than 80 products.The portal, called TechInsights Direct, was developed in partnership with Balihoo, a company that sells advertising productivity tools. It is designed to be a “one-stop shop;” a site where marketers can search and browse inventory, purchase advertising and upload their creative directly. Though TechInsights CEO Paul Miller says he is “loathe to say it is the Expedia of the media space,” he says it is similar in that it puts research and transaction capabilities into the buyer’s hands.“This will help us with the long tail of customers we can’t reach,” Miller told Folio:. “It’s a way for these customers to come in and begin that process of interacting. It’s good for small customers and great for incremental spends from existing customers.”The portal is also designed to free up salespeople’s time. “Our sales people don’t need to be used on a smaller $3,000 sale,” Miller says. “That can clog up a whole week if you’re not careful.”TechInsights pays Balihoo an annual renewable licensee for the software itself and offers some revenue share. The group has also created two positions dedicated to TechInsights Direct.“Our expectations are that revenues are going to grow,” says Miller. “By how much? I don’t know quite yet, but this will expose our product lines to more clients and make it easier for them to do business.”According to Shane Vaughan, vice president of marketing at Balihoo, the technology isn’t quite an ad portal just yet, as it isn’t able to preflight check files, but those capabilities are on Balihoo’s roadmap. For companies that already have ad portals, he says, “the two systems are integrated and work in conjunction.”last_img read more

Congress to Extend Funding Deadline into Next Week

first_imgHouse Republicans on Wednesday released a five-day continuing resolution (CR) giving Congress until Dec. 16 to clear a year-end omnibus funding the federal government.With the two parties still at loggerheads over dozens of contentious policy riders, the House and Senate will need to pass the stopgap by Friday to avert a government shutdown.“While progress is being made on negotiations for a full-year omnibus appropriations bill, it is clear that more time is needed to complete the package,” House Appropriations Chairman Harold Rogers (R-Ky.) said in a statement.President Obama would sign the new CR “only to give Congress enough time to pass budget,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during a Twitter chat.Rogers said it is his “hope and expectation” that a final agreement on a $1.1 trillion omnibus can be reached and enacted before Dec. 16. He also expressed confidence the fiscal 2016 spending bill would not slip into calendar 2016.While lawmakers acknowledged that negotiators still have a long way to go to strike a deal, they appeared more optimistic than in recent days, reported CQ Roll Call.Party leaders are negotiating the most controversial riders, including language addressing the certification process for Syrian refugees, a provision to block a federal rule protecting wetlands and waterways, and a rider inspired by the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case related to health care coverage of abortion-related services.Democrats are seeking to keep the omnibus spending bill as “clean” of controversial add-ons as possible, while the GOP is intent on using the measure to achieve the party’s policy goals.“There’s a lot of unresolved issues,” Roger told reporters. Some issues are “being handled by leadership and then a whole host of others will be considered at the committee level. So we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us. We are making progress.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

No shirt no shoes no hospital visiting privileges says Costa Rican Supreme

But it’s not the Navajo print leggings, tube tops or flat-billed, gold-studded New York Yankees cap that’s at issue here: The Costa Rican Supreme Court upheld a public hospital’s right to refuse a man entry because of his beachy attire.The Costa Rican man, who was not named in the case summary, tried to enter San Rafael Hospital in Alajuela wearing a tank top and shorts. When a security guard turned him away at the door for violating the hospital’s dress code, he filed a complaint with the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV, saying that the guard abused his authority.The complainant argued that the hospital, as part of the Costa Rican Social Security System, was a public building and did not have the right to limit his access based on his dress, and should remove the sign outside saying so.The Sala IV was not impressed with the complainant’s “sun’s out, guns out” argument and upheld the hospital’s right to impose a public dress code so long as the rules are clearly posted and applied equally to all.The Sala’s judges ruled that the dress code was not arbitrary or harmful to the complainant’s or other hospital users’ fundamental rights. The hospital can limit any “inappropriate clothing” like tank tops and shorts that could “threaten the order, hygiene or respect of those visiting the facilities or harm the image of the institution,” the judges ruled.

Twitter sat in congressional hot seats where auto industry and oil industry executives have sat before them The central issue before lawmakers was the spread of disinformation and “extremist content” online particularly Russian meddling in the 2016 election and further campaigns that have leveraged social media to “sow conflict and discontent all over this country” as one lawmaker put it As was noted by the lawmakers and tech companies the Russian efforts did not stop on Election Day and the motivations behind the meddling are more complex than seeking to help Donald Trump win the White House Some posts linked to Russia on social media appeared to be aimed at inflaming divisions on social issues race immigration religion or undermining Americans’ faith in government as ends in themselves And the Russian campaign is emblematic of bigger issues said Sen Mark Warner exposing just part of “the dark underbelly of the ecosystem you have created” With threats ongoing and evolving and with tech companies still struggling to determine the extent of Russian interference the subtext of the hearings was about what comes next Can the public trust these proud American firms to prevent future abuse in all the complicated forms it might take Or does Washington need to step in to make sure the cycles they create are more virtuous than vicious Though lawmakers are subject to the same fanboy tendencies as the rest of us they repeatedly emphasized the brilliant things companies such as Facebook do for individuals and the American economy they also seemed dubious about whether tech companies really have control over their own platforms and products "I think you do enormous good" Sen John Kennedy a Louisiana Republican said on Tuesday "but your power sometimes scares me" California Sen Dianne Feinstein a Democrat who represents the state where all three companies are headquartered was harsher on Wednesday “I must say I don’t think you get it … What were talking about is the beginning of cyber warfare” she said “You have a huge problem on your hands The US is going to to be the first of the countries to bring it to your attention and others are going to follow Im sure because you bear this responsibility Youve created these platforms and now they are being misused” None of the companies shirked that responsibility in their testimony even if they hadn’t figured out exactly how to meet it Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch said that nearly 150 million users of Facebook and Instagram may have seen posts or other content peddled by Russia-backed trolls around Election Day Twitter identified almost 37000 accounts that may have been part of the same campaign which sent out an estimated 14 million tweets Google whose representative endured less grilling than the other two because it is not primarily a social media platform turned up 18 YouTube channels that were likely associated with those efforts All the witnesses agreed that Russia meddled in the election and testimony suggested that the way its agents manipulated the system caught them unprepared "The abuse of our platform to attempt state-sponsored manipulation of elections is a new challenge for us" said Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett And it is one of many Beyond Russia lawmakers spoke about terrorists using social media to find new recruits about users posting how-to videos for building bombs about sex trafficking and drug trafficking about child safety and the perennial challenges of censoring hate speech while protecting the rights of free expression As these companies have grown theyve relied on algorithms to help with the workload and the limitations of machines came under fire too As Democratic Senator Al Franken noted on Tuesday algorithms will make mistakes like identifying a common interest of "Jew-hating" among Facebook users and offering that up as a way for marketers to target ads (Stretch admitted that the episode was “deeply offensive”) At one point on Tuesday Franken also mocked the notion that these companies have produced "the most sophisticated things invented by man ever" to some laughs from the crowd It was a humbling moment for companies that are more often hyped up than taken down a peg Throughout the hearing Google Facebook and Twitter all emphasized that bad actors are a tiny minority among their

"I spent a considerable amount of time with Laxman bhai recently during CAB’s Vision 2020 camp While his technical inputs were priceless what stood out for me was his advice to stay in present and just focus on very next assignment" Tiwary who returned after a vacation in Europe told PTI in during an interaction here today File photo of Manoj Tiwary Reuters "He (Laxman) has followed my career

better cricketer than what you are at the moment’ I found his words very encouraging" said the Bengal batsman who has 253 runs from 9 ODIs For the 29-year-old the most important aspect will be to get

“In fact I strongly dispute the motion put in front of Parliament that The FA is not meeting its duties as a governing body “I do hope that those attending on Thursday make themselves aware of The FA’s duties and the great work we are actually doing “Our duties require us to promote develop and invest in the game; and whilst I freely admit that our governance needs improvement it doesn’t prevent us from supporting the game from top to bottom “I am also confident that when the time comes to present our changes to the Minister she will agree that we are making positive and pro-active
