News industry leaders fighting back against claims by Trump

NEW YORK — With President Trump and his supporters saying journalists were “so wrong for so long” in their coverage of the Russian investigation, news industry leaders are fighting back.The latest to weigh in is Steve Coll, dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. He wrote in The New Yorker magazine this week that it’s wrong to conclude journalism failed just because special counsel Robert Mueller did not charge Trump with conspiring with Russians to influence the 2016 election.Columbia awarded the Pulitzer Prize to The New York Times and The Washington Post for their Russia coverage, a prize Trump says should be taken away.Complicating the discussion is the broad definition of “news media” circa 2019.The Associated Press read more

General Assembly calls for end to US embargo against Cuba

The resolution passed with a vote of 179 in favour, four – the Marshall Islands, the United States, Israel and Palau – against and the Federated States of Micronesia abstaining.US Ambassador Oliver Garza told the Assembly the resolution was trying to blame the United States for “the failed economic policies of the communist regime in Cuba” and to divert attention from the Caribbean island’s human rights record.”Let us remember that the United States is the single largest source of humanitarian assistance to Cuba. Remittances from US persons to Cuba have been estimated at close to $1 billion annually,” he said.Since last month, Mr. Garza said, the Cuban Government no longer issued new licenses for 40 categories of self-employment, including running a small restaurant in one’s home “or even be a clown at a children’s party.”Cuba’s Foreign Minister, Felipe Pérez Roque, said justifying using the blockade to improve human rights on the island was a distortion and a diversion because the US Government had the least moral credibility globally to speak of human rights, given its unilateral wars that violated international law and the UN Charter.The United States had also prevented Cuba from using the US dollar as a trading currency. This was why President Fidel Castro had announced 72 hours ago that he would replace the dollar with “the convertible Cuban peso.”In its resolution the Assembly said since its first resolution on the matter in 1992, the United States had taken further measures to strengthen and extend the restrictions, which adversely affected the Cuban people at home and abroad.It also expressed concern about the implementation of laws and regulations, such as the United States’ Helms-Burton Act of March 1996, “the extraterritorial effects of which affect the sovereignty of other States, the legitimate interest of entities or persons under their jurisdiction and the freedom of trade and navigation.”It noted that the declarations and resolutions of different Governments, intergovernmental forums and bodies had rejected those laws and regulations and it called on all states to repeal or invalidate them as soon as possible.While criticizing the current state of human rights in Cuba, Arjan Paul Hamburger of the Netherlands, speaking on behalf of the European Union, repeated that the US trade policy towards Cuba should be purely bilateral and not have extraterritorial implications for third nations.Other speakers on the resolution included the representatives of Qatar on behalf of the Group of 77, Brazil on behalf of the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR), Jamaica on behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Mexico and China. read more

Google alleges Microsoft Nokia are abusing mobile patents in complaint filed in

Google alleges Microsoft, Nokia are abusing mobile patents in complaint filed in Europe by News Staff Posted Jun 1, 2012 2:30 am MDT SAN FRANCISCO – Google lashed out at Microsoft and Nokia in a regulatory complaint, accusing them of illegally feeding mobile patents to a technology troll scavenging for billions of dollars in licensing fees that threaten to drive up the prices of cellphones and other wireless devices.The claims were spelled out Thursday in a complaint filed with the European Commission, the chief regulator on that continent. Google Inc. also shared the complaint with the U.S. Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.Microsoft Corp. brushed off Google’s accusations as the “desperate tactic” of a company facing regulatory questions about its dominance of online search and digital advertising. Efforts to reach Nokia Corp. representatives at the company’s headquarters in Finland late Thursday were unsuccessful.Google’s attack on Microsoft and Nokia escalates a legal brawl among technology giants trying to gain the upper hand in the rapidly growing market for mobile computing. Most of the fighting so far has been in the courtroom, where lawsuits and countersuits alleging patent infringements have been filed by Apple Inc., Samsung, Microsoft, Oracle Corp. Nokia, and HTC, among others.Some of the missives have been aimed at Google and its business partners using its Android software for smartphones and other mobile devices. To protect itself, Google picked up 17,000 mobile patents in a $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility Holdings that was completed last week.Nokia joined forces with Microsoft last year when it agreed to adopt Windows as the operating system on its cellphones.Google’s complaint centres on 2,000 wireless patents that Nokia and Microsoft sold in September to MOSAID Technologies Inc., a company that specializes in collecting royalties on intellectual property. Companies that focus on extracting patent royalties instead of innovating are derisively known in the technology industry as “trolls.”MOSAID has made it clear it believes it is sitting on a potential gold mine.After Nokia and Microsoft handed over the patents, MOSAID estimated the royalties from the intellectual property rights could bring it more $1 billion in revenue over the next decade. Under terms of the sale, MOSAID keeps one-third of the revenue from the patent royalties with the remainder going to Nokia and Microsoft. That mean’s MOSAID’s revenue estimates imply the patents could generate licensing fees of $3 billion during the next decade.MOSAID declined to comment Thursday. The company, which is based in Ottawa, Ontario, already is suing iPhone and iPad maker Apple for alleged patent infringement in a Texas federal court.The portfolio that Nokia and Microsoft transferred to MOSAID is valuable because about 1,200 of the patents are considered to be “essential” to the operation of most mobile devices running on 2G, 3G and 4G wireless networks.Some of the patents cover parts of open-source software known as the Linux Kernel, a form of freely available computer coding that Google used in building its Android operating system. Google alleges MOSAID is reneging on a commitment that Nokia made in a 2005 regulatory filing when the company pledged not to enforce patents against software relying on the Linux Kernel.“Nokia and Microsoft are colluding to raise the costs of mobile devices for consumers, creating patent trolls that side-step promises both companies have made,” Google said in a statement. “They should be held accountable, and we hope our complaint spurs others to look into these practices.”In its statement, Microsoft alluded to investigations in the U.S. and Europe into allegations that Google has been abusing its influential role in Internet search to thwart competition and increase advertising rates.Google “is complaining about antitrust in the smartphone industry when it controls more than 95 per cent of mobile search and advertising,” Microsoft said. “This seems like a desperate tactic on their part.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Father of soldier murdered in Iraq blasts Government for hounding troops but

first_imgThe father of a soldier murdered by an Iraqi mob has accused the Government of “rank double standards” for hounding troops over alleged abuses while failing to pursue the insurgents who killed his son.Reg Keys said ministers had “all but given up” tracking down seven men who had been identified over the murders of six military policemen – known as “Redcaps” – in June 2003.Lance Corporal Tom Keys, 20, and five comrades were ambushed by a 500-strong mob and executed as they guarded a police station in one of the most notorious incidents of the Iraq conflict. It prompted Mr Keys to campaign to hold the Government to account, eventually standing against Tony Blair in the 2005 election. The call to scrap the Iraq and Afghanistan criminal investigations has been lent further support from mothers of soldiers killed in the conflicts.Carol Valentine, whose son Simon, 29, a sergeant, was killed by a bomb in Afghanistan, has launched a petition, with four others, to have Ihat and Operation Northmoor shut down.An MoD spokesman said: “We understand the continuing anguish suffered by families of the six military policemen who were murdered in Iraq in 2003. The MOD has gone to very great lengths to investigate the circumstances of these murders, to bring the insurgents responsible to justice, and to learn lessons and to minimise the risk of recurrence.”  Lance Corporal Tom Keys It just beggars belief that the Government is spending millions while there are murderers of Britons walking free in Iraq.Reg Keys 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. Reg Keys with a photo of his son Tom John and Marilyn Miller, the parents of Corporal Simon Miller, 21, one of the others killed at Majar al-Kabir, have also complained of having no justice for their son’s death while British soldiers were being investigated by the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (Ihat) and Operation Northmoor, which is looking at alleged abuses in Afghanistan. “I’m disgusted and outraged at the number of allegations against British troops in Iraq,” said Mr Miller, 64. “What is even worse is that there is no reciprocation for the brutal murder of my son and his five Royal Military Police comrades. If this isn’t the ultimate betrayal, then nothing is.”After a request under the Freedom of Information Act, Mr Miller obtained witness statements taken shortly after the Red Caps were killed in June 2003.  These show that local police gave a list of nine suspects to the Ministry of Defence.The documents disclose that 16 witnesses described what happened on the day, including graphic details of how insurgents armed with AK-47 assault rifles fired at the police station where the British soldiers were and shouted “kill them”. Reg Keys with a photo of his son TomCredit:ANDREW PRICE/REX Despite this, not one Iraqi has been held responsible for the slaughter. The MoD has released the witness statements – but the suspects’ names have been redacted. The Millers, who live in Washington, Tyne and Wear, have said it is “absolute nonsense” that they were not able to know the names of the suspects, nor of the interpreter who was with their son at the time so they could speak to him.“They keep telling us it is for data protection reasons and that they don’t want to jeopardise any court case in Iraq,” Mr Miller said.  “It is absolute nonsense. They don’t want us to know because they don’t want to do anything about it. I want to know who killed my son. I want to be able to use those names to fight for justice. I want to see the Iraqis investigated like we are investigating our guys.”After the murders, it emerged that the Redcaps had been sent lightly armed and unprepared into an area known to be dangerous, and left without proper communication or back-up. Their grieving parents have faced a string of legal hurdles in getting to the truth. Earlier this year, they were blocked from finding out the names of their sons’ alleged killers because of “data protection”.Mr Keys, 54, said: “It just beggars belief that the Government is spending millions while there are murderers of Britons walking free in Iraq.“A coroner delivered an explicitly clear unlawful killing verdict and this Government have not given a damn.“Jack Straw stood up after they died and vowed to bring these killers to justice. It’s a betrayal that the only people now facing criminal inquiries are our own men and women sacrificed to an unjust war.”He added:  “It sends a signal that you can kill a soldier with impunity whereas the other way around any soldier caught out committing even just a common assault, they will come down on like a ton of bricks. It’s like it’s open season to kill a British soldier and nobody goes after you.” Lance Corporal Tom Keyslast_img read more

Méthode Dukan au bac des points bonus contre le surpoids

first_imgMéthode Dukan au bac : des points bonus contre le surpoidsA en croire le docteur Dukan, le poids devrait entrer dans les critères de notation au baccalauréat. Créateur de la fameuse méthode d’amaigrissement, celui-ci propose, dans une lettre ouverte adressée au Président, de donner des points aux candidats du baccalauréat dont la masse corporelle resterait comprise entre 18 et 25. L’obésité est aujourd’hui devenue un réel problème de santé publique qui atteint progressivement les plus jeunes. A tel point que l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) a décrété il y a quelques années, la maladie “épidémie mondiale”. Alors que les autorités multiplient les campagnes de sensibilisation et les plans pour tenter de remédier au problème, le docteur Dukan, célèbre pour sa méthode d’amaigrissement, a décidé de participer à la lutte en proposant une mesure, pour le moins discutable.  En effet, la méthode Dukan au lycée consisterait à donner des points au baccalauréat à ceux qui arrivent à garder un indice de masse corporelle (IMC) entre 18 et 25, entre la Seconde et la Terminale. Pour ce faire, les lycéens seraient pesés à six reprises pendant ces trois années, ce qui permettrait ainsi de suivre l’évolution de leur poids. Néanmoins, les biens-portants ne seraient pas pour autant désavantagés puisqu’ils pourraient gagner des points eux aussi en perdant un peu de poids entre deux pesées. L’objectif du nutritionniste est, selon ses dires, de sensibiliser les adolescents à l’équilibre alimentaire. Sur Europe 1, il a ainsi expliqué plus précisément ses intentions : “personnellement, je l’ai fait pour mes enfants. Je les ai aidés et stimulés dans ce domaine-là. Je leur ai appris à se nourrir bien. Ce que j’ai voulu pour mes enfants, j’aimerais bien le vouloir pour tous les enfants de France”.Une incitation au régimeÀ lire aussiObésité : quels risques pour la santé ?L’idée du docteur Dukan de vouloir trouver une solution pour améliorer la santé des adolescents et jeunes adultes est évidemment totalement justifié. Mais la méthode qu’il propose semble tout sauf appropriée, sans évoquer l’aspect discriminatoire. Si le régime Dukan a suscité un succès phénoménale dans le monde, il faut tout de même rappeler que 95% des personnes qui suivent un régime reprennent le double des kilos perdus en cinq ans. Plus sérieux encore : ce système de notation s’inscrirait à un âge où les adolescents ont encore des besoins essentiels à leur développement.Les régimes restrictifs, dissociés ou hyper protéinés plongent très souvent les personnes soucieuses de leur apparence dans un cycle “yoyo” , de frustration et d’insatisfaction. Sans oublier que ce système d’incitation par les notes s’inscrirait dans un contexte où les troubles du comportement alimentaire, parmi lesquels l’anorexie, sont de plus en plus fréquents et apparaissent jeune. Pour l’heure, les autorités ne se sont pas prononcées sur la lettre du docteur Dukan mais le débat a déjà été lancé sur le net. Et vous, qu’en pensez-vous ?

AI tools can help individuals tackle climate change scientists say

first_imgAI can empower Individuals to do their share in reducing global emissions, says a new paper.  Getty Images Small footprints can leave lasting impressions. In a paper released earlier this month, a team of machine learning experts mention how artificial intelligence tools can empower individuals to reduce their own carbon footprint. Put together by experts from Harvard, MIT, Google, Microsoft, and elsewhere, the paper (PDF) describes machine learning solutions that could let large players, ranging from transportation systems to whole cities, reduce energy wastage and greenhouse gases. But it also dismisses the notion that individuals don’t contribute heavily to global emissions, and includes a section on how everyday people can take steps to reduce 20%-37% of global emissions through 2050. For instance, the paper describes how machine learning can predict someone’s carbon footprint from flight information extracted from emails or from grocery items listed on a supermarket bill. Consumers can pinpoint which habits contribute to the highest emissions and take steps to curb them. From a household perspective, individuals could use machine learning to predict how their high-energy appliances might have a significant effect. The paper notes that appliances use electricity even when not in use.For those consumers worried about privacy, the paper recommends that individual emission estimates could be included on grocery labels or in interfaces for purchasing plane tickets.”It’s the responsibility of the companies developing these tools to make very clear to consumers what data they need,” said David Rolnick, a research fellow at University of Pennsylvania who contributed to the paper.The collaborative effort among researchers takes place at a time when some major corporations and cities have made attempts to reduce their carbon footprint. In May, multinational electronics company LG launched an initiative to achieve net-zero carbon emissions from its international operations by 2030. Similarly, automobile brand Volkswagen opened up a 100% carbon-neutral data center in Norway last week (though the company was also embroiled in an infamous emissions scandal.)The researchers didn’t immediately respond to a request for additional comment. Originally published June 26, 1:35 p.m. ETUpdate, 3:45 p.m.: Adds comment from David Rolnick Now playing: Watch this: LG Sci-Tech How to stop climate catastrophe | What the Future Share your voicecenter_img Comment Tags 1 6:23last_img read more

Only three years ago, its capex was just Rs 250 crore. A TVS spokesperson declined to provide details of new product-related plans of the company but confirmed that the company will spend Rs 500 crore this year.A premium motorcycle (to be called Apache RR or Akula) is proposed to be developed jointly with BMW, and will go into production later this year, the report said. This is expected to be the most powerful and expensive product from the TVS stable expected to be priced between Rs 1.25-1.5 lakh.Among the events lined up this year is the design and development of new generation concept engine as well as design, development and production of a new engine for international business.”The company has a strategic partnership with BMW Motorrad to develop and manufacture sub-500 cc bikes both for domestic and global markets.

Lawyer Says Assange Is Happy Today After Prosecutor Dropped An Investigation Into

first_img Share The Latest on Swedish prosecutor ending investigation of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange (all times local):1:15 p.m.Julian Assange’s Swedish lawyer Per E. Samuelson says it is a “day of victory” for the WikiLeaks founder after Sweden’s top prosecutor dropped an investigation into a rape claim against him.Samuelson tells The Associated Press that “this was consensual sex between two adults and nothing else,” adding Assange was now “a free man.”Samuelson says he spoke by telephone with Assange, who told him: “Yes, Per, it feels much better today. Finally we got there.”Samuelson said Sweden’s judicial system “spoiled and wasted five, six years of his life … but he is happy today.”___12:45 p.m.A lawyer for the woman who alleges she was raped by Julian Assange says “it is a scandal that a suspected rapist can avoid the judicial system and thus avoid a trial in court.” Elisabeth Massi Fritz says her client is shocked but adds that “she can’t change her view that Assange has exposed her to a rape.”___12:05 p.m.Julian Assange’s lawyer is asking French president Emmanuel Macron to intervene in support of the WikiLeaks founder. Juan Branco told The Associated Press in Paris that he wants Macron to help Assange leave the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.Branco says: “We need a political intervention to make this situation end. He is the only political prisoner in Western Europe.”___11:45 a.m.Sweden’s top prosecutor says “costs were not a reason for putting down the investigation” of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.Marianne Ny told a news conference: “When we investigate serious crimes, we do not consider the costs.”In a written statement, officials said: “According to Swedish legislation, a criminal investigation is to be conducted as quickly as possible. At the point when a prosecutor has exhausted the possibilities to continue the investigation, the prosecutor is obliged to discontinue the investigation.“At this point, all possibilities to conduct the investigation are exhausted.”___11:25 a.m.Sweden’s top prosecutor says the investigation of alleged sexual offenses could reopened if Julian Assange returns to Sweden before the statute of limitations lapses in 2020.The prosecutor, Marianne Ny, told a news conference in Stockholm that she could make no judgment on Assange’s guilt or innocence. She says: “We don’t make any statement of guilty or not.”___11:20 a.m.Sweden’s top prosecutor, Marianne Ny, says she has withdrawn a European arrest warrant for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after concluding that it won’t be possible to bring him to Sweden.Ny told a news conference in Stockholm: “He has tried to dodge all attempts to avoid Swedish and British legal authorities. My assessment is the transfer cannot be carried out in a foreseeable future.”Ny says she has withdrawn a European arrest warrant. However, British police say Assange still faces arrest for jumping bail if he leaves the Ecuadorean embassy in London.___10:45 a.m.Despite Sweden’s decision to drop a rape investigation, British police say that Julian Assange still faces arrest if he leaves Ecuador’s London embassy.The Metropolitan Police force says that there is a British warrant for Assange’s arrest after he jumped bail in 2012, and it “is obliged to execute that warrant should he leave the embassy.”But it adds that Assange is now wanted for a “much less serious offense” than the original sex crimes claims, and police “will provide a level of resourcing which is proportionate to that offense.”Police kept up round-the-clock guard outside the embassy until last year, when the operation was scaled back.___10:30 a.m.WikiLeaks says the ball is now in Britain’s court after Sweden’s decision to drop its rape investigation of Julian Assange.Assange is wanted by British police for extradition to Sweden. But he also believes the United States wants to extradite him to face charges related to WikiLeaks’ publication of classified American documents.After the Swedish announcement. WikiLeaks tweeted: “UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a US extradition warrant for Julian Assange. Focus now moves to UK.”British police said before the announcement that Assange is still wanted in Britain for jumping bail. It is not clear if that may change now that the investigation has been dropped.___10:20 a.m.Sweden’s top prosecutor says she is dropping an investigation into a rape claim against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after almost seven years.The Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement Friday that Marianne Ny “has decided to discontinue the investigation.”Assange took refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in London in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden to answer questions about sex-crime allegations from two women. He has been there ever since, fearing that if he is arrested he might ultimately be extradited to the United States.Friday’s announcement means Assange is no longer under any investigation in Sweden.
