Arrest of Google Brazil head reviving a debate over Web

first_imgThe arrest of a top Google executive is reviving a debate about Brazilian laws that hold services such as YouTube responsible for the videos posted on them, making the country a hotbed of attempts to stifle digital content.Legal experts said on Thursday that Google violated a judge’s order to take down videos on its YouTube subsidiary that target Brazilian political candidates – and that the judge was completely within the law in issuing the arrest warrant.But they said the arrest of Fabio Jose Silva Coelho, the head of Google Inc.’s Brazil operations, underscores the need to modernize laws that treat offensive material on the Internet like material that is carried by newspapers, television and radio, holding platforms such as Google responsible for user-provided content.Coelho was released shortly after his arrest Wednesday and agreed to appear before a court at an as-yet undetermined time. On Google’s official Brazil blog, Coelho wrote Thursday night that the company was forced to block the video in the case for which he was arrested after the company lost its final appeal.”We are deeply disappointed that we have never had the full opportunity to argue in court that these were legitimate free speech videos and should remain available in Brazil,” he wrote. “Despite all this, we will continue to campaign for free expression globally.”Legal experts said the case cast a spotlight on problems within Brazil’s legal system.”Our laws trying to govern the Internet are outdated,” said Jose Guilherme Zagallo, head of the Brazilian bar association’s commission focusing on information technology law. “It’s not clear who is responsible for content, and that creates uncertainty for Internet companies, users and judges, who are left to interpret laws not written for the Internet.”Brazil’s strict electoral laws limit what critics can say on television, radio and the Internet about candidates for office. On several occasions in recent years, media outlets have faced stiff fines for breaking the laws, but few if any officials were arrested.Google’s alleged infractions, however, are more widespread, simply because of its omnipresence. Ahead of municipal elections in Brazil next month, Google has received requests in more than 20 states to remove videos that allegedly violate those restrictions.Google has faced a landslide of content-removal requests around the globe, including in the US, but Brazil makes more requests than any other nation, according to the company’s summary of all the demands. Most such demands relate to legitimate attempts to enforce laws on issues ranging from personal privacy to hate speech.Brazilian government agencies alone submitted a total of 194 content-removal requests during the final half of last year, according to a summary released by Google in June. Running just behind that was the United States, where police, prosecutors, courts and other government agencies submitted 187 requests to remove content over the same period.Google says it complied fully or partially with 54 percent of Brazilian removal requests in the last half of 2011. Most requests involved YouTube and charges of defamation. Other requests involved the social networking site Orkut and requests to remove illegal content, such as child pornography.Separately this week, another Brazilian court ordered YouTube to remove clips of an anti-Islam film that has been blamed for deadly protests by Muslims around the globe. Google is now selectively blocking the video clips in countries that include Libya and Egypt. Google has said it made the decision to block the video in such places due to “the sensitive situations” there.Brazil’s legal action targeting a Google executive, while rare, is not unprecedented. In 2010 in Italy, a judge held three Google executives criminally responsible for an online video of an autistic teenager being bullied. The executives were given six-month suspended sentences.A judge in Mato Grosso do Sul state ordered Coelho arrested because the company had not removed YouTube videos making incendiary comments about an alleged paternity suit aimed at Alcides Bernal, who is running for mayor of the city of Campo Grande.”Being a platform, Google is not responsible for the content posted on its site,” the company said in a statement this week.Bruno Magrani, a researcher at the Center for Technology and Society at Rio de Janeiro’s Getulio Vargas Foundation, said that unlike the United States and some other countries, Brazil doesn’t have legal protections for online service providers that host content provided by third parties.There is pending legislation that would provide some protection for intermediaries such as Google. Earlier this month the company joined Facebook and online retail site MercadoLivre in sending an open letter supporting the passage of the law, called Marco Civil.”Marco Civil establishes that providers of Internet applications are not responsible for content published by users,” the letter says. “Various economic, social and legislative factors justify not holding providers responsible; without that protection, the use of online applications and platforms would be limited, which would be a loss to users.”While the measure would create some protections, it would not resolve the legal tangle facing Google’s Coelho or prevent the situation from recurring, Magrani said.The Marco Civil is general legislation, and could still be trumped by more specific electoral laws. Those laws treat an Internet platform such as Google as if it were a newspaper or a television station, holding it responsible for its content.”It’s a very serious situation,” Magrani said. “Brazil needs to change its electoral law to accommodate the nature and the characteristics of the Internet. The Internet cannot be treated in the same way as traditional media.”First, he said, an Internet company cannot evaluate all the content it carries in the same way a newspaper or television channel can because of the sheer volume.Second, “the Internet has no editor. And we don’t want an editor,” Magrani said.He said asking a company to determine what users can upload is a dangerous step that could undermine freedom of information.”If we continue threatening to jail heads of companies who don’t verify content before it goes on the Internet, we will end up living in a state of censorship,” he said. “If the company is running a high risk, it’ll start posting less and less material. … If companies start to feel afraid of retaliation, they’ll start censoring.”The lack of protections for Internet platforms can also have a chilling effect on the development of small- and medium-size high-tech companies in Brazil that don’t have the resources of big companies like Google, Magrani said.The federal government is investing heavily to promote the tech sector, but Brazilian legislators need to diminish legal risks for startups, he said.Maria Clara Garcaz, a 20-year-old university student in Rio de Janeiro, expressed worries about the court action.”It’s like we live in a silent, disguised dictatorship. When we had our real dictatorship, at least you knew for certain what you could and couldn’t say,” Garcaz said. “Political speech can be censored at any time and it’s moving into the Internet, exactly where people speak out.”advertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Dahiya to coach Delhi as Yashpal named chief selector

first_imgLife has come full circle for Vijay Dahiya. On Saturday, exactly a year after he was sacked as Delhi coach by the DDCA sports committee, he returned to the job for the 2014-15 season.Dahiya welcomed his appointment and thanked DDCA for reposing faith in him. While former India selector Yashpal Sharma has been named chairman of the selection committee, Chetan Chauhan has been made chief mentor of Delhi cricket. The other selectors for the senior team are Nikhil Chopra, Rakesh Shukla, Vinay Lamba and Siddharth Verma. Dahiya was the front-runner for the coach’s job this season after his successor Sanjeev Sharma was a complete failure. In fact, going into the season as champions of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Delhi failed to even qualify for the knockout stages.While there wasn’t any clarity as to why Dahiya was dumped last year, certain sections in the DDCA felt his unavailability for the complete season – as he is also assistant coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders – was an issue.Speaking to MAIL TODAY, Dahiya said it has always been an honour for him to be associated with Delhi cricket, and he will look to give it his best shot.”I have always maintained that coaching Delhi is my top priority. I have always been grateful to them because they gave me an opportunity to coach the team when I had just finished playing. That was indeed a big platform for me and I shall never forget that,” he said.Yashpal’s appointment doesn’t come as a surprise as it was believed that not too many players were happy with Chauhan’s authoritative working as chief selector.advertisementSkipper Gautam Gambhir’s war of words with Chauhan during the last domestic season was no secret. That could be one of the reasons for DDCA deciding to give Chauhan the mentor’s role.Chauhan, though, said he wasn’t miffed with DDCA’s decision. “I am okay with the decision to make Yashpal the chairman. I wish him all the best and I think it is fair to give others a chance,” he said.Interestingly, none of the officials have received their appointment letters yet. But DDCA president Sneh Bansal confirmed that all letters will reach the concerned persons by Sunday. “I have spoken to them over phone and they have given their consent. The official letters will reach them by Sunday. The decision to appoint them was taken today, so give us some time,” he told Mail Today.last_img read more

Indian Super League 2019-20: Kerala Blasters FC Look for Home Comfort against Mumbai City FC

first_imgKochi: Kerala Blasters FC (KBFC), on a high after an opening night win at home, are set to pit their wits against Mumbai City FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Thursday.Buoyed by the vociferous home support, Kerala gave a good account of themselves against ATK and coach Eelco Schattorie will be hoping to make the maximum of their home advantage. Kerala generally tend to do well, if they perform well at home. In 2014 and 2016, when they reached the play-offs, they had a strong home record (KBFC lost just one home game in both seasons). “If you play at home, you have a little bit of advantage,” said Schattorie ahead of the clash.Mumbai have an air of surprise around them, given that they haven’t played till now while Kerala have already given Jorge Costa an opportunity to analyse them. Schattorie felt that while it is an advantage for the visitors, he is not particularly worried.”The playing style of Mumbai (City) is clear for me. How the positions are filled and which players is always a question mark when you don’t see their games. If you already saw your opponent play one time, it makes a difference. (But) it is another challenge that we have to face,” he said.Mumbai manager Jorge Costa, however, said he saw what he expected from Kerala in their match.”We studied the team (Kerala Blasters) but it was the first game of the season. It was not a wonderful game, but it was very good. I watched KBFC for the first time but it was not a surprise. I knew the players, I know the coach,” Costa said.Mumbai will look towards the likes of Paulo Machado and Modou Sougou, key figures behind the team’s run to the play-offs last season, to drive the team. They have several key Indian midfielders in Rowllin Borges and Raynier Fernandes who will be expected to set the tempo for the team from the middle of the park.The Islanders will also bank on the firepower they have with new recruits Serge Kevyn and Amine Chermiti boosting their attacking arsenal.Kerala’s defensive duo of Gianni Zuiverloon and Jairo Rodrigues will have their hands full on Thursday.Kerala do have a bit of a fitness concern after influential midfielder Mario Arques was taken off injured in the last game. He will miss Thursday’s match. But the onus will be on star striker Bartholomew Ogbeche, who scored a brace on Sunday, to deliver again. atkbengaluru fcchennaiyin fcfc goa First Published: October 23, 2019, 8:30 PM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

Jenson Button hints at full-time return to Formula 1

first_imgJenson Button, who is all set to take part in the Monaco Grand Prix in what he described as a one-off comeback race with McLaren-Honda, has hinted that he could make a full-time return to Formula One grid next season.Button, who called time on his 17-season career in Abu Dhabi last November, will be back behind the wheel of a McLaren in the month of May when he replaces Fernando Alonso.Pointing out that he still has contract with Mc Laren to race next year, the 37-year-old refused to rule out a comeback from retirement.”I have a contract with the team to race next year so definitely I would not rule anything out,” Sport24 quoted Button as saying.The 2009 world champion also revealed that he was contacted earlier this year by two teams asking him to race for them this season.”I had so many options to race this year it is hilarious.I am thinking of Monaco as my only race this year. But, obviously, if I am asked again at another point in the year I am here to fill that seat,” he added.Button won 15 Grand Prix during a career which climaxed in him winning the championship with Brawn GP in 2009.Recently, he won in his age group competition in an `Ironman in California` contest , and in doing so, he secured a spot at the world championships to be held in Tennessee later this year.last_img

Report: Russia Making Progress on Racism Before World Cup

first_imgJAMES ELLINGWORTH, AP Sports WriterMOSCOW (AP) — Russia has made progress fighting soccer racism ahead of next year’s World Cup, but players, coaches and fans still risk abuse, a new report says.There were 89 racist and far-right incidents at Russian games in the 2016-17 season, slightly below the two previous seasons, according to Thursday’s report by European anti-discrimination group FARE and Russia-based SOVA.In one case, an African player complained of racist abuse by an opponent during a Russian Premier League game. In another case, a hardline fan group segregated part of a stadium for people of “Slavic appearance,” the report alleges. Fans of Russian champion Spartak Moscow flew anti-Semitic banners.The Russian Football Union’s disciplinary committee, however, has said it didn’t detect a single racist incident in any of the top three divisions this season.The report comes ahead of the Confederations Cup, starting Saturday, and a year ahead of the World Cup.“The Russian football authorities and the government authorities have realized … the way both of these competitions will be tarnished by the fear of racism occurring and they’ve taken some quite strong measures,” FARE’s executive director Piara Powar told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “There still remains the danger of some isolated incidents taking place.”Russian authorities have taken measures to blacklist at least 191 fans from attending sports events, while the RFU ejected an influential fan leader, Alexander Shprygin, from its organization. He was deported twice from France last year following violence around Russia’s match with England at the European Championship, and has been accused of posting far-right symbols on social media, a charge he denied.Shprygin was dragged out of a bathroom at an RFU conference in September by police and detained, reportedly in connection with an investigation into fan violence.FARE says Russia has made some progress, and that it didn’t observe monkey chants or openly Nazi flags in any top-flight games this season. However, it warns far-right fans instead fly banners with concealed messages such as runes and number codes used by Nazi and ultranationalist groups.The RFU punished two clubs in the 2015-16 season for such banners, but didn’t pursue any such cases this season — something which Powar says indicates it may be “turning a blind eye.”That was despite cases of anti-Semitic banners being flown by Spartak fans, including taunts aimed at rival CSKA Moscow, whose club president and then-coach are both Jewish. Another Spartak banner showed a Russian rock singer caricaturized as an Orthodox Jew, accompanied by personal abuse.CSKA fans also targeted their own coach, Leonid Slutsky — now at England’s Hull City — with a banner linking his Jewish faith to poor results.FARE says the number of violent racist incidents fell from five to two last season compared to the year before. There was also no repeat of large-scale violent attacks on foreign fans, such as those which took place between Russian and English fans in Marseille a year ago during the European Championship.However, there are indications that football-related violence between different ethnic groups in Russia is becoming more entrenched, with fans from Russia’s largely Muslim regions in the North Caucasus forming “fan groups which adopt football hooligans’ rules and initiate fights with Moscow teams.”In another case last month at a playoff game for a place in the Russian Premier League, one fan group from the Yenisei Krasnoyarsk team issued a statement on social media saying that its sector of the stadium was only available to fans of “Slavic appearance.”A member of the group, Artyom Kirillov, suggested the group had been misunderstood. “A lot was made up” in local media reports of the incident, he told the AP. “We are loyal to all Russian citizens.”FIFA said Wednesday that Confederations Cup games will use a three-stage process in the event of fan racism. Referees will first request a public announcement, then suspend the game if the behavior doesn’t stop. If racist incidents still persist, they can stop the game.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Feds mulling safeguards to prevent surge of cheap steel imports into Canada

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal government extended an olive branch of sorts to Donald Trump’s tough-on-trade White House on Tuesday as it began exploring how best to address industry concerns that U.S. tariffs are turning a trickle of foreign steel imports into a torrent.Over the next 15 days, Ottawa will seek input from producers, users and the public as it considers imposing “safeguards” on the import of several steel products, said Finance Minister Bill Morneau. The measures, if applied, could include quotas, surtaxes or a combination of both.If the consultation period identifies a risk of potential damage to the Canadian industry, then Ottawa will impose safeguards in an “expeditious manner,” Morneau told a news conference in Hamilton, Ont.The main goal is protect Canada’s steel industry, the government insists — but taking a stand against cheap steel imports will have a vital side effect: appeasing the Trump administration.The White House has complained that Canada has opened a back door to the American market, allowing for an invasion of bargain-basement steel into the U.S. from places like China.U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in June that the steel and aluminum tariffs Washington imposed on Canada and other allies were designed to force them to address the overproduction and overcapacity of steel around the world.The Trump administration has also drawn direct links between steel imports, tariffs and the ongoing efforts to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.With the crucial U.S.-Canada trading relationship at a low point, it’s in Ottawa’s interest to show Trump that Canada is taking action on the diversion and dumping of steel.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has insisted that Canada introduced stronger safeguards on steel well before the U.S. imposed the tariffs in June. At the same time, however, Ottawa acknowledged more work was necessary and promised to consult with industry on safeguards.In unveiling his plan Tuesday, Morneau said worries about cheap, foreign steel finding its way into Canada have grown since the application of the U.S. duties on steel imports against numerous countries.The levies have put producers in other parts of the world on a quest to find new markets, such as Canada, he said.“We’ve seen increases in imports,” Morneau said, although he did not offer specifics. “That surge in imports leads us to be concerned that we need to consider what measures to take.”International trade rules enable a country to introduce safeguards to protect its domestic market when it finds itself in an unusual situation, said Morneau, arguing that the expected fallout from the U.S. tariffs qualifies as an “exceptional circumstance.”The consultations will focus on products that could see safeguard action: steel plates, concrete reinforcing bars, energy tubular products, hot-rolled sheets, pre-painted steels, stainless steel wire and wire rods.Joe Galimberti, the president of the Canadian Steel Producers Association, welcomed the consultations, noting that industry has been seeing increased import activity from offshore sources.“This is a serious, serious challenge for the industry and a flood would truly be devastating to a lot of our producers,” he said.Some industries in Canada that use steel have already started urging Ottawa not to proceed with safeguards.The Canadian Coalition for Construction Steel, which represents construction steel suppliers, fabricators, service centres, and importers, warns that safeguards would put more than 60,000 construction jobs in the country at risk.“The government needs to be really cautious about this,” said Jesse Goldman, a lawyer representing the coalition, which also has support from labour unions.The retaliatory steel tariffs introduced by Canada against the U.S. in response to the American levies are already providing a lot of protection for the steel industry, Goldman said. Imposing safeguards on the rest of the world would likely cause a supply shortage of steel in Canada, he added.Lawrence Herman, a Toronto-based trade lawyer with Herman and Associates, said the overcapacity of steel has been a chronic issue for years on the international stage. He called the safeguards “absolutely necessary.”“The world is awash in excess steel,” Herman said.“Hopefully, it will show the U.S. administration — the Trump White House — that on steel matters, Canada and the U.S. have common interests.”Morneau insisted Tuesday that there’s no connection between NAFTA talks and the steel issue.The federal government has been in a holding pattern on NAFTA as it awaits the conclusion of high-level, one-on-one talks between the deal’s two other partners, the U.S. and Mexico. Those bilateral talks are now in their fourth straight week.Some observers fear Canada’s absence could force Ottawa’s hand if a deal is reached between the U.S. and Mexico.In an interview Monday, Trump trade adviser Kevin Hassett told the FOX Business Network that the U.S. and Mexico were very close to a deal on NAFTA. A bilateral agreement between the U.S. and Mexico would be “good news for a deal with Canada,” he added.“I think the hope is the Mexican deal becomes a model for what Canada accepts with us as well,” said Hassett, the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.— with files from Tara Deschamps in Hamilton, Ont.last_img read more

Goodyear with strong fourthquarter results in North America earns 228M beats estimate

Goodyear, with strong fourth-quarter results in North America, earns $228M, beats estimate CLEVELAND – Strong fourth-quarter results in Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.’s core North American market helped the tire maker beat Wall Street estimates Thursday.With car sales increasing, the number of tires sold to auto makers in North America rose 7 per cent in the fourth quarter over the same period in 2012. Replacement tire shipments increased 1 per cent.The number of tires sold worldwide increased 2 per cent to 40.7 million.Goodyear also announced it fully funded its hourly pension fund with a $1.15 billion cash payment, ending more than a decade of dealing with the issue.Goodyear shares rose 10 per cent in midday trading.The Akron-based company said it earned $228 million, or 84 cents per share, on sales of $4.8 billion. After one-time charges, Goodyear earned 74 cents, beating the Wall Street estimate of 65 cents.Revenue missed the estimate of $4.98 billion and was off 5 per cent from the fourth quarter of 2012, hurt by lower third-party chemical sales in North America and foreign currency issues.The company had broken even on sales of $5 billion in the last quarter of 2012.In the most recent quarter, Goodyear’s North American segment operating income rose 72 per cent to $199 million.For the full year, Goodyear earned $600 million, or $2.28 per share, on sales of $19.5 billion, up from 2012 earnings of $183 million, or 74 cents per share, on sales of $20.9 billion.With a new labour agreement, Goodyear said it has halted production at an Amiens, France, factory with a contentious past and will close it by March.Last month protesting workers reached an agreement to end years of standoff, with Goodyear providing improved indemnities for employees who are let go.Workers seized the plant’s director and human resources chief for two days in early January to demand bigger severance packages. The managers were released after police intervened.Chairman and CEO Richard Kramer said the pension fund payment would free up the company to become more competitive.“For more than a decade we have been dealing with volatility associated with legacy obligations,” he said in a conference call with analysts.“With our legacy obligations essentially behind us, we can devote 100 per cent of our efforts to creating competitive advantage.”Its shares rose $2.58, or 10.7 per cent, to $26.75 in midday trading. Its shares have risen more than 90 per cent so far this year.

Mens basketball Ohio State gets first Big Ten win over Michigan State

OSU senior forward Marc Loving drives to the basket against Michigan State forward Miles Bridges on Jan. 15 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won 72-67. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorThe story ended. Another has begun.The Ohio State men’s basketball team defeated Michigan State 72-67 for its first win in conference play, ending the team’s worst start to conference play in the 13 season under coach Thad Matta.Sophomore guard JaQuan Lyle carried the Buckeyes (11-7, 1-4) with 22 points. Senior forward Marc Loving added 12.Freshman sensation Miles Bridges led Michigan State (12-7, 4-2) with 24 points.Everything that had been detrimental to OSU’s chances to win a game suddenly disappeared on Sunday. The Buckeyes withstood runs from Michigan State — something OSU failed to do in three of its first four Big Ten matchups. OSU shot well from the outside, 10 for 23, and turned over the Spartans 17 times.Matta said that what he watched on the court felt like OSU basketball.“We needed it. There’s no question about that,” he said.The team that battled 40 minutes against Michigan State on Sunday looked nothing like the team that suffered a 23-point embarrassment at Wisconsin on Thursday.Matta said that when the team got off the plane in Columbus after that game, he told his players that they have to stand for something in life. He said that Sunday would tell the story of how the team responds to adversity following its worst loss of the season. In result, OSU matched each Spartan run with one of its own and executed when it had to.“We talked about playing through adversity all week,” Loving said. “Our practices were really hard and in certain situations you got to play through adversity in practice. So just trying to get good reps of those to get them to carry over into the game and I felt like it helped.”Made free throws and Tate’s rebound off freshman guard Joshua Langford’s missed 3 sealed the game for OSU, but there were plenty of opportunities before the final seconds where OSU could have folded.Michigan State started the game hitting its first six shots and led 15-10 at the first media timeout. However, sophomore guard C.J. Jackson checked into the lineup for more defensive presence and the Buckeyes went on a 9-0 run to take a 16-15 lead. When the Spartans retook a 20-16 lead, OSU went on an 11-0 run.Langford hit a 3 at the halftime buzzer to cut the OSU lead to 36-33, giving the Spartans the momentum heading into the break. OSU scored the first points of the second half not allowing Michigan State to start a run.The Spartans finally captured the lead with 14:45 remaining in the second half on a 3-pointer by Kyle Ahrens, then Lyle and Loving both hit shots from deep to keep the score on OSU’s side.Down two with 7:15 to go, Lyle connected on one of his five triples. OSU hit its next three shots, including a 3 from junior forward Jae’Sean Tate to give OSU its largest lead of the game, 66-58.They could have folded, but they didn’t. For Matta, that was the most encouraging sign of a team coming off a 23-point loss.“The thing I’m most proud of is things did not go as planned throughout the course of the game but we kept coming back and we kept defending,” Matta said. “I thought we had decent ball pressure, which is a good thing.”For the first time all year, OSU had all five starters in double figures — an occurrence that OSU hopes isn’t an anomaly but becomes a consistent theme.“We have no choice but to build off of it,” Lyle said. “These past four games, we were the lowest of the low that we could be. The way now is to go up.”Up NextOSU goes on the road once again in conference play to Lincoln, Nebraska for a Wednesday night matchup with the Cornhuskers at 9 p.m. read more

Ohio State footballs Dominic Clarke DerJaun Gambrell released from scholarships

Ohio State football defensive backs Dominic Clarke and DerJuan Gambrell were released from their scholarships Sunday for violations of team rules, OSU athletics spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed to The Lantern Sunday night. Clarke, a redshirt sophomore, had two run-ins with law enforcement, and was most recently charged with drunk driving on Jan. 7, when he ran a stop sign near the intersection of W. 12th Avenue and Neil Avenue, according to multiple reports. Franklin County court records indicate that Clarke pleaded not guilty Friday to the charge. Clarke was also arrested for an Oct. 9 incident involving a “compressed-air gun,” which he fired from the roof of Marketplace, a campus eatery, located at 1578 Neil Ave. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer addressed Clarke’s most recent arrest during a Thursday press conference. “What we’ll never do is say we’re going to make an example out of a kid. That’s not going to happen,” Meyer said. “However, (Clarke) broke a team rule. I’m still getting the information. I’m very, very disappointed because some things were covered in the team meeting. They’ll be dealt with very swiftly and sternly at the appropriate time.” Emig did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s inquiry regarding the nature of the rule violation committed by Gambrell, a freshman. read more

Alleged attacker of Syrian schoolboy scared for his life

A schoolboy alleged to be responsible for an attack on a young Syrian refugee has said he is scared for his life after receiving violent threats.The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said he and his family had gone into hiding after a video of the incident was widely shared online.In an interview with English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson, a convicted fraudster whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, the 16-year-old said he was “scared for my life, scared for my family’s life”.He said: “My address got put out and there were people turning up at my house in cars, all this type of stuff.””We went into hiding because we’ve had all these threats, rape threats, death threats,” he added.In the footage, the 15-year-old victim is thrown to the ground and threatened with drowning at a school in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.The alleged perpetrator previously gave The Sun Online a handwritten statement in which he accepted responsibility for his actions, but denied bullying the younger boy.”The incident was isolated and came about from an altercation between us earlier that day.”The incident was not racial as up to that time we had been on good terms,” he said. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The footage of the incident at Almondbury Community School provoked outrage and prompted well-wishers to set up an online crowdfunding page for the victim which received £50,000 in donations in the space of a day.Prime Minister Theresa May said the generous public response showed the “true spirit of Britain”.Shortly after the footage emerged, the victim said he no longer felt safe at school.He told ITV News: “I woke up at night and just started crying about this problem. They think I’m different – different from them.”I don’t feel safe at school. Sometimes I say to my dad, ‘I don’t want to go to school anymore’. I was just crying and I didn’t do nothing because I respect the school rules.”West Yorkshire Police previously said a 16-year-old boy had been interviewed over the attack and reported for summons for an offence of assault ahead of a youth court appearance. read more

Intel wants to launch TV service using settop box with facial recognition

first_imgIntel continues to dominate the chip market for computers, but the company is also attempting to see off its rival ARM in other markets. As well as developing low power chips for use in smartphones and tablets, it has been revealed Intel is attempting to get into the TV media business.Intel has secretly been developing a new set-top box alongside a subscription TV service that would see it take on the major cable TV services as well as Google and Apple vying for a place under our televisions. The key feature that Intel believes will make its set-top box attractive to everyone  is its inclusion of facial recognition technology.Facial recognition would allow both the gender and the age of the people viewing a TV to be detected at any given moment. In turn, the advertisements shown would be chosen to cater for the audience on a per set basis, meaning ad targeting performance that’s off the scale. Better targeted advertising means higher ad revenue therefore offsetting the cost of licensing the programs people want to watch.If Intel can get media partners on board, it potentially puts the company in a very strong position going forward. More ad revenue means more content, and therefore a desirable service for consumers. In return Intel gets its tech installed in homes around the U.S. and potentially other countries depending on how successful the venture is.Consumers may take issue with the fact they are being monitored by the box, but the facial recognition will be limited to detecting just age and gender. The end result may actually be more desirable for viewers as there’s much less chance you’ll view adverts of no interest. It may also limit how many times you see the same advert.Read more at Reuterslast_img read more

PSA Think twice before using a smartphone charging kiosk

first_imgThe smartphone charging kiosk is a welcome addition to many airports and public areas, especially if it means you don’t have to carry around a bulky extended battery case. Some clever hackers have discovered that these kiosks can be easily used to do more harm than good if users are not careful.Every year there’s at least one story that comes out of the DefCon conference that makes you second guess something in your life that you would otherwise view as harmless. Many of the attendees focus on locating security exploits in areas that people wouldn’t consider for this very reason, as the best exploit is one that no one expects. Smartphone charging stations offer you a nondescript cable with the other side tucked away in a box — few people know what the other side of that cable is connected to, with the innocent assumption being that it is just a power source. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much for it to be something more.The experiment conducted at DefCon was simple: when there was nothing connected to the kiosk, the screen on the station offered free power to anyone in need. When a device was connected to the kiosk, and the computer connected to the kiosk could access the phone, a red warning screen flashed and educated users on the possibly damage that could be done in this situation.What sort of damage? Once you have a direct connection to a smartphone, someone with malicious intent could extract all of the data from it or even write malware directly to OS. Even when the phone is set to charge only, an option available in many Android phones, the computer in the kiosk could still access information.If you find yourself in need of a charging station, the team behind this experiment found that most phones don’t give up information when the phone is powered off. Otherwise, unless you are sure the kiosk is safe, the team recommends using the cable that was included with the smartphone.via Krebs on Securitylast_img read more

Glenn Whelan returns and Matt Doherty drops out as McCarthy names Irish

first_img Short URL https://the42.ie/4562159 By Gavin Cooney Ireland have only ever failed to beat Georgia once in eight meetings, the outlier being a 1-1 draw in Tiblisi in September, 2017. Ireland are tonight looking for their first competitive win at the Aviva Stadium since beating Moldova a month after dropping those points in Georgia.If Ireland were to win and Switzerland drop points at home to Denmark, they would head into the next round of fixtures in June top of the group. Kick off is at 7.45pm, and the game is live on RTÉ Two and Sky Sports Main Event.  Mar 26th 2019, 6:27 PM Glenn Whelan returns and Matt Doherty drops out as McCarthy names Irish team to face Georgia Sean Maguire is also benched, with Shane Duffy passed fit to start.

Image: Morgan Treacy/INPHO MICK MCCARTHY HAS made two changes to his Irish side for tonight’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Georgia. Matt Doherty and Sean Maguire drop to the bench, and are replaced by Glenn Whelan and Robbie Brady. The selection means Whelan plays in consecutive games at the Aviva Stadium, in spite of supposedly retiring after last November’s game with Northern Ireland. It has since become clear that was Martin O’Neill’s call, rather than Whelan’s. Robbie Brady starts having replaced Matt Doherty before the hour mark of Saturday’s game with Gibraltar, although he isn’t expected to play the full game owing to a lack of game-time with Burnley this season. Brady has completed a full 90 minutes just twice all season. Doherty drops to the bench following McCarthy’s post-game admission that including he and Seamus Coleman on the same flank didn’t work, while Sean Maguire also loses out following a below-par showing last Saturday. Shane Duffy, meanwhile, is fit to start after missing training yesterday with an ankle knock. It looks likely to be a 4-3-3 formation for Ireland, with McGoldrick leading the line between McClean and Brady; Hendrick and Hourihane will flank Whelan in midfield. Here’s the team in full:Mick McCarthy has named his team for tonight’s @UEFAEURO game against Georgia#IRLGEO #COYBIG #EURO2020 pic.twitter.com/dqs4Evbgsf— FAIreland ⚽️🇮🇪 (@FAIreland) March 26, 2019 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

ASA Endorses Letter to President Raising Concerns Over Agriculture Market Access in

first_imgMembers of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade sent a letter to President Obama this week, stating concerns over agriculture market access in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations.The members specifically expressed concern with the efforts of Japan and Canada to exempt numerous tariff lines from complete elimination in the United States, according to a news release from the Ways and Means Press Office.In the letter, the members state the current position in negotiations is unacceptable and U.S. farmers and ranchers deserve the best deal possible.“Specifically, Japan is seeking to exempt numerous tariff lines from complete elimination with the United States.  If accepted, this unprecedented and objectionable offer would significantly limit access for U.S. farmers and ranchers to the Japanese market, and most likely, to other TPP countries as well,” the letter states. “Furthermore, caving to Japan’s demands would set a damaging precedent, compromising the U.S. negotiating position with future TPP members.”The members also said they are “troubled by Canada’s lack of ambition, which is threatening a robust outcome for U.S. farmers.”The letter ended stating with members urging the President to hold Japan and Canada to the same high standards as other TPP partners or congressional support for the agreement will be jeopardized.Click here to read the entire letter.last_img read more

Thousands march for gun control in Washington

first_imgDemocrats in Senate may stifle gun controlWASHINGTON — Thousands of people, many holding signs with names of gun violence victims and messages such as “Ban Assault Weapons Now,” joined a rally for gun control on Saturday, marching from the Capitol to the Washington Monument.Leading the crowd were marchers with “We Are Sandy Hook” signs, paying tribute to victims of the December school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and other city officials marched alongside them. The crowd stretched for at least two blocks along Constitution Avenue.Participants held signs reading “Gun Control Now,” “Stop NRA” and “What Would Jesus Pack?” among other messages. Other signs were simple and white, with the names of victims of gun violence.About 100 residents from Newtown, where a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six teachers, traveled to Washington together, organizers said.Participant Kara Baekey from nearby Norwalk, Conn., said that when she heard about the Newtown shooting, she immediately thought of her two young children. She said she decided she must take action, and that’s why she traveled to Washington for the march.“I wanted to make sure this never happens at my kids’ school or any other school,” Baekey said. “It just can’t happen again.”last_img read more

ICC 2019 World Cup Breaking England put Pakistan in to bat Wood

first_imgEngland captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to bat first in his team’s second match of ICC 2019 World Cup, against Pakistan at Trent Bridge. The one change made by the English team is the arrival of Mark Wood in place of Liam Plunkett. Wood has shown the ability to bowl at high speeds and rattle the batsmen. Morgan did say that the reason for the change is to get some extra pace in the bowling attack.Considering how badly Pakistan struggled against the West Indian bowlers on this very ground, having a genuinely quick bowler is an understandable strategy.On the other hand, Pakistan dropped Haris Sohail and Imad Wasim to have the veteran Shoaib Malik and hard-hitter Asif Ali in the team. While the former’s quality and experience would be needed badly by his team, Ali’s ability to score quick runs might come in handy at the end of the innings.last_img read more
