Parents overwhelmingly want Duty of Care for tech giants poll revealParents overwhelmingly want Duty of Care for tech giants poll reveal

“The Government’s Online Harms White Paper must impose a legal duty of care on social networks.”The plan has also been backed by Ruth Moss, whose daughter Sophie took her own life in 2014 age 13 after viewing graphic suicide and self-harm images on social media.Mrs Moss, from Edinburgh, said: Sophie’s death devastated me. No mother, or family should have to go through that. It was so unnecessary; she had so much to live for, she was only 13.”Social networks should have a duty of care to protect children and vulnerable people from damaging material and self regulation is clearly not working”. The Telegraph understands that the Government is currently considering imposing a duty of care on tech companies as part of its white paper, which is being drawn up by the Home Office and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and sport.The polling comes as the NSPCC released its blueprint for how it would want to see a statutory duty of care work in practice.The plan calls for tech companies to face unlimited fines and potential criminal investigations, enforced by a regulator, if they fail to prevent children from being harmed on their sites.The children’s charity also wants a named high ranking executive to be legally responsibility for ensuring each social media company meets their duty of care obligations, with the threat of being disbarred from holding corporate directorships if they fail. Nine out of ten parents want social media companies to be subject to a legal duty of care to keep children safe on their platforms, a NSPCC poll has revealed.A ComRes poll of more than 2,700 people, conducted for the children’s charity, showed that 92 percent of parents with children aged 11 to 18 backed a duty of care, while 89 percent of the wider public also support the measure.The survey also found that the majority did not think social networks were safe for children age 11 to 12, with 70 percent saying they felt Facebook was unsafe.The minimum age for most large social networks is 13 but the NSPCC has argued that the lack of any effective age verification system means the companies need to ensure their platforms are not harmful for children.The poll findings come as the Government faces mounting calls to impose a legal duty of care on tech companies, a measure the Telegraph has been campaigning for.Peter Wanless, NSPCC Chief Executive, said: “The support for statutory regulation of social networks is now overwhelming.“It is clear that society will no longer tolerate a free-for-all under which tech firms allow children to operate in a precarious online world with a myriad of preventable risks.

Multotec cites training as key to steady expansion in AfricaMultotec cites training as key to steady expansion in Africa

first_imgThe philosophy of strong local support as the foundation for building customer trust is paving Multotec’s steady expansion into Africa, says the company. The industry-leading mineral processing solutions provider has grown its Africa footprint over almost two decades, and counts its success down “to developing local capacity – including skills and infrastructure – as close to the customer as possible, to allow quick and effective response.”“We prioritise skills transfer and capacity-building in our African facilities, and also train our customers’ staff in the maintenance of our equipment,” says Multotec CEO Thomas Holtz. “It is becoming increasingly important – both to us as suppliers and to our customers, the mines – to invest in local skill development as a key sustainability practice.”Multotec has for many years provided training in process-related topics in South Africa, and in recent years has rolled this out in a more formal and structured manner in other regions; the group’s equipment can today be found in almost 50 countries on six continents, with a portfolio in all commodities.Holtz says the focus of the training is to bridge the gap between the theory that mine staff will have learnt in tertiary studies, and the practical day-to-day mechanics of working with equipment in a plant environment.“The culture of a fly-in-fly-out consultant is expensive and generally does not empower local professionals and operators,” he says. “Where we can build local capacity to support our products, the customers appreciate that – and we’ve seen growing interest in this training over the past two to three years.”According to Multotec Africa Managing Director Jaco du Toit, the cradle-to-grave concept ensures compliance with the Mines ISO 14000 environmental management standards – where the group provides the equipment, technical expertise and maintenance, as well as the removal and recycling of the product at the end of its life.With Multotec’s growing support network and range of products, customers are now engaging the company increasingly on contracts to take over the maintenance of its equipment on site, aligned to service level agreements.last_img read more

Israël pourrait renoncer à ses projets nucléaires civilsIsraël pourrait renoncer à ses projets nucléaires civils

first_imgIsraël pourrait renoncer à ses projets nucléaires civilsAlors que la situation est encore loin d’être maîtrisée dans la centrale japonaise de Fukushima, les pays du monde entier s’interrogent sur l’avenir de l’énergie nucléaire. Ainsi Israël pourrait renoncer à son projet de nouvelle centrale, et envisage de reconsidérer entièrement sa position quant au déploiement du nucléaire civil.”Je ne crois pas que nous allons poursuivre un programme d’énergie nucléaire civile dans les prochaines années”, a déclaré le Premier ministre israélien Benjamin Netanyahu, dans une interview rapportée par le site du Parisien. Le pays projetait la construction d’un réacteur dans le désert du Néguev, qui devait être construit par la compagnie nationale d’électricité, Israel Electric Corporation. Mais la catastrophe japonaise l’a “amené à repenser les projets visant à construire des centrales nucléaires civiles” a-t-il expliqué.Aujourd’hui Israël est le seul pays du Moyen-Orient a produire de l’électricité d’origine nucléaire, avec une centrale construite dans les années 1950 et mise en service en 1964. Une installation réalisée avec l’aide de la France, qui suscite beaucoup d’inquiétudes dans le pays. Dans un récent rapport, Greenpeace affirme que “tout accident, provenant d’une erreur humaine, d’une catastrophe naturelle ou d’une attaque de missiles, comporterait un danger de radiations sur un rayon de 400 km, couvrant Israël, les Territoires palestiniens, la Jordanie et Chypre”.Outre cette vétusté dénoncée, l’Etat hébreu est situé sur la faille sismique syro-africaine. Le pays est régulièrement frappé par des secousses, dont certaines se sont montrées meurtrières, comme en 1927, lorsque des centaines de personnes ont perdu la vie lors d’un tremblement de terre de magnitude 6,25.Du gaz plutôt que du nucléaireFace à cette menace sismique, Benjamin Netanyahu a demandé le développement d’un dispositif permettant d’alerter la population environ 5 à 35 secondes avant qu’un séisme ne se produise. Alors que le projet de nouvelle centrale devrait être abandonné, Israël pourrait se concentrer sur les deux gisements de gaz récemment découverts en mer, à 130 kilomètres au large de Haïfann au nord du pays. “Moïse (…) nous a conduits dans la seule partie du Moyen-Orient qui n’a ni gaz, ni pétrole. Mais il s’est avéré qu’il n’était pas un si mauvais guide puisque nous avons découvert du gaz en mer. Alors, je crois que nous allons prendre le gaz et nous passer du nucléaire” a en effet déclaré le Premier ministre israélien.Le 21 mars 2011 à 19:26 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

How Pokemon is Inspiring Citizen ScienceHow Pokemon is Inspiring Citizen Science

first_img Hydrologists have been piggybacking off the renewed popularity of Pokemon in the wake of the success of its mobile app (you all know the one I mean), to help learn more about how vast quantities of water move around in the United States.At issue, bizarrely, are tiny streams, the type you would step over without much thought if you were hiking across the countryside. These smaller bodies are important to understanding where water is and how it moves.“It is really unimpressive-looking in person,” Tamlin Pavelsky, a hydrologist at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill told NPR. “But if you think about the number of these streams there are across the country; it’s staggering.”There are, perhaps millions of such streams that run across the country. And looking at them gives us the best understanding and forecasting when we look at the water supply.“I started out looking at big rivers,” he adds. “But if I wanted to try to answer a lot of the questions that I had about big rivers I realized that I had to go back and look at the small streams to be able to answer them… For many processes, they actually dwarf something like the Mississippi in terms of their importance.”So where does Pokemon fit into this? Well, with the success of Pokemon Go there were suddenly millions of people walking around idling searching for Pocket Monsters to add to their collections. So hydrologists got clever, and partnered with NASA to help create a project that would help collect data for them. The project, part of the larger citizen science app CitSci, is called Stream Tracker. And it’s exactly what it says. Anyone who is able can help scientists track using GPS and other data, where streams are and whether they are flowing or dry or still frozen. All of this can be compiled together to create functional models for understanding what the US water supply is doing at any given point.So far, the team only has 80 volunteers, mostly in Colorado, Utah, Ohio, and Arizona, but they’re always accepting more folks to help gather data.

Chemical Warfare Units to Leave AberdeenChemical Warfare Units to Leave Aberdeen

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR A battalion responsible for handling chemical and biological hazards began its relocation from Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., Friday with a casing ceremony.Two companies of the 22nd CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear) Battalion will be moving to Fort Bliss, Texas; one company will move to Fort Hood, Texas; and a fourth will go to Fort Stewart, Ga. A fifth company based at Fort Drum will remain at the New York post.In total, 266 soldiers will be relocating from Aberdeen by July 2017. The battalion has been based at the proving ground since World War II.The realignment to Forces Command installations is intended to improve support for maneuver forces, reported the Baltimore Sun.“Re-stationing the 22nd CBRN Battalion better enables our units to train with and support our Army divisions and ensures the 20th CBRNE [Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives] Command can provide the Department of the Army and combatant commanders with ready, reliable and globally responsive forces,” Brig. Gen. William King IV, commanding general of the 20th CBRNE, said in a statement.Each company under the 22nd Battalion is responsible for “technical escort,” which involves providing “advice, assessment, sampling, detection, verification, render-safe, packaging, and escort of chemical and biological devices or hazards, biological surveillance and limited consequence management support to military forces or civilian authorities,” said Maj. Ryan Donald, spokesperson for the 20th CBRNE Command.About 300 soldiers assigned to the 20th Command will remain at Aberdeen, Donald said.last_img read more

What is ahimsa meat Scientists create fatfree boneless meat from stem cellsWhat is ahimsa meat Scientists create fatfree boneless meat from stem cells

first_imgDNA’Ahimsa meat’ is the latest type of meat in the Indian market which researchers claim do not need the rearing and slaughter of animals. The meat, which was synthesised from stem cells, was created in Hyderabad in a joint effort by Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) and National Research Centre on Meat (NRCM), reports The Times of India.The researchers said that the synthetic meat will look, taste and feel the same. Different types of meat can be produced, including chicken and mutton. They added that the nutritional content of the meat will be the same as the natural ones.However, this meat will be boneless and fat-free. By producing this type of meat, the scientists hope that there would be a reduction in the carbon footprint and they will contribute to animal welfare.The laboratories were given a budget of Rs 4.5 crore to develop the meat. Maneka Gandhi, a known animal rights activist, had asked to start producing synthetic meat on a commercial scale in five years.Humane Society of India, which is one of the top promoters of synthetic meat, claimed that the government’s investment in the project is the largest compared to any other country.What do international meat suppliers have to say?Peter Verstrate, the CEO of Dutch company Mosa Meat, told Labiotech that by moving towards synthetic meat, methane emissions would reduce. Along with this, 95 per cent of water spent on rearing the farm animals could be saved.”We have billions of animals that are being raised and are being eaten. If you can just reduce that 10 per cent, 20 per cent it would be massive on the environment, but we don’t expect that to be done within 10 years. The only thing that is now on our horizon is just stopping the growth of animal consumption. If we can just do that it will be a huge win,” said Daan Luining, the CTO of Meatable, cultured meat company in Denmark.

TCS beats Infosys Wipro in attrition rates in June 2016 quarterTCS beats Infosys Wipro in attrition rates in June 2016 quarter

first_imgInfosys and Wipro have recorded a rise in attrition. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has beaten Infosys and Wipro, registering a consistent fall in attrition. TCS however posted a decline in its earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.Infosys registered an attrition of 21 percent, up around 3 percent sequentially, but the company also increased net addition of employees to 3006 for the June 2016 quarter. The net addition was up by 78 per cent, when compared to 661 in the previous quarter.To incentivise employees, Infosys re-launched the Employee Stock Option Programme after nearly a decade for the junior and mid-level management staff. ESOP shares are used as a corporate strategy to boost workers’ interest in the company’s performance.The company also noted that the attrition of high-skilled workers had been reduced during the last quarter.”We are really encouraged. We also track high performers’ attrition, which has come down. Earlier last quarter, it was 13.4 per cent and this quarter, it has come down to 11.2 per cent, so we are encouraged by that,” UB Pravin Rao, Infosys Chief Operating Officer said.Infosys had 1.97 lakh total employees for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.While Infosys showed an upward trend in net addition of employees month-on-month, it was opposite for Wipro during the June 2016 quarter.

SoundCloud Revises Premier Contract in Response to CriticismSoundCloud Revises Premier Contract in Response to Criticism

first_imgAlso, along with stating a regular accounting period and a commitment to notify artists of any changes to the contract, the company has extended the artists’ right to challenge from six months to two years. The new contract passed the Verge’s sniff test as well.The post goes on to state that “this updated agreement does not change the way we already operate SoundCloud Premier today:• You retain all of the rights to your content• You receive a pro rata share of 55% of net revenue• You are paid for each calendar month within 45 days of the end of that month, regardless of how much you earn• You have the freedom to exit the program whenever you wish, and can always use any other platform alongside SoundCloud• As with any change to SoundCloud Terms of Use, you will be notified two weeks before we make any changes to this agreement so you can review the changes and agree to them.“SoundCloud is and will always be a creator-first platform,” the post concludes. “We’re committed to building industry-leading products and services for you to share, connect and grow your career. As part of that commitment, we’ll always take feedback and respond as quickly as we can to keep improving the platform for you.” In the wake of SoundCloud’s launch of its Premier platform earlier this month, the company came under criticism in an article published on the Verge Friday, which pointed out several restrictive elements in the contract around its payment dates and percentages, and particularly in that artists are asked to sign away their rights to sue SoundCloud. In a blog post titled “Clarifying the SoundCloud Premier agreement” published Monday, the company noted some updates to the contract.“As we’ve grown, we’ve also seen feedback that some language in the original program agreement was too broad, and we want to avoid any doubt around your rights and how we run the program,” the post reads in part. “Our team reviewed the agreement, and we’ve clarified or removed elements that may be unclear or not relevant to the open service we have now — this includes the removal of the outdated covenant not to sue language that was part of our previous invite-only agreement.” Popular on Variety center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

NSW cleans up in Qantas tourism awardsNSW cleans up in Qantas tourism awards

first_imgA boost for NSW tourism came in the form of eleven wins at Qantas’ annual Australian Tourism Awards. From twenty six categories, NSW took home eleven gold, six silver and three bronze awards, dominating the competition which saw Queensland tourism pick up just a single prize. Top trophies for NSW included winners such as Jenolan Caves, Tri State Safaris, Newcastle Airport, Scone Motor Inn, Sydney Harbour YHA, Coffs Coast Aboriginal Discovery and the NSW Caravan, Camping, RV & Holiday Super Show. Tourism and Major Events Minister George Souris congratulated the state on its stellar performance. “This is an outstanding result for NSW, demonstrating excellence in our tourism industry and highlighting the top-quality operators who are leaders among their peers,” Mr Souris said. Queensland snared seven category wins in 2011 but this year were only acknowledged as having the top major tour operator, in the form of Fantasea Adventure Cruising. “It was a great result for tourism operators in the NSW’s North Coast and Hunter regions, winning a total of 13 honours between them, showing the tremendous variety and quality of tourism businesses across NSW,” Mr Souris said. The Northern Territory managed to secure ten awards from a total of twenty one categories at the ceremony in Cairns last Friday.

PHOENIX – Francisco Cantu said he joined the BordePHOENIX – Francisco Cantu said he joined the Borde

first_img PHOENIX – Francisco Cantu said he joined the Border Patrol at age 23 to get an on-the-ground education in international relations.Now 32, he says he didn’t expect his new memoir examining some of the agency’s uglier aspects would spark protests by far-left groups denouncing him for the enforcement work and forcing him to cancel some talks promoting “The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border.”He said he agrees with much of the criticism from the left — even though it caught him off guard — and had expected most of the backlash to come from the right.Cantu told his detractors on Twitter: “To be clear: during my years as a BP agent, I was complicit in perpetuating institutional violence and flawed, deadly policy. My book is about acknowledging that, it’s about thinking through the ways we normalize violence and dehumanize migrants as individuals and as a society.”Cantu said he wrote the book to make sense of his time with the patrol.“Writing the book was a way to come to terms with what I had participated in, a job that made me normalize a certain amount of violence,” Cantu said. “I tried not to draw conclusions, but offer descriptions of what happened and a reflection of my state of mind.”Released last month by Riverhead Books, the memoir has collected positive reviews for its elegant prose about issues at the forefront of the nation’s conversation on immigration and other border issues.It braids together the history of the U.S.-Mexico boundary, Cantu’s experiences with the migrants encountered by day and the dreams that haunted him at night.Raised in Arizona’s borderlands as the only child of a Mexican-American woman, Cantu thought several years in the agency would provide real-world experience for a diplomatic or legal career after graduation from American University. He joined the Border Patrol even though his mother warned of possible consequences.“‘You can’t exist within a system for that long without being implicated,’” he recalled her saying.Cantu worked for the agency from 2008-2012 trekking through the Arizona, New Mexico and Texas deserts. He encountered desperate migrants abandoned by traffickers in the desert, moved to bandage a woman’s blistered feet and buy a man dinner at McDonald’s.He also spent countless, monotonous hours gathering intelligence at a listening post about sinister figures who lurked in the shadows and closely monitored the movements of Border Patrol agents.When Cantu joined the force, he had “an idea about changing the system from the inside or bringing some good to it” but found the system “designed to break you down and rebuild you into an enforcement agent.”He wrote that agents’ behaviour depended “on what kind of agent you are” when fleeing migrants leave supplies behind.“It’s true that we slash their bottles and drain their water into the dry earth, that we dump their backpacks and pile their food and clothes to be crushed and pissed on and stepped over, strewn across the desert and set ablaze,” he wrote.That passage was cited by some of his Hispanic detractors when they protested his book and recounted their own stories about relatives immigrating to the U.S.Cantu acknowledged that resentment — even though many agents are Mexican-Americans who grew up near the border.Latinos were among activists who disrupted his reading at BookPeople in Austin, Texas’ largest independent bookstore. Protest organizer Defend Our Hoodz called Cantu a “vendido,” meaning sellout. The group did not respond to written questions.Insults by another group of immigrant rights activists calling Cantu a “hipster Border-Pig” prompted him to cancel talks at San Francisco and Oakland bookstores a week later. He signed books instead.He’s scheduled to appear this weekend at the Tucson Festival of Books.U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials haven’t said anything about the book.“It’s just one person’s opinion,” Border Patrol spokesman Chris Sullivan said.After leaving the patrol, Cantu was a Fulbright scholar for a year documenting the lives of refugees who were refused asylum in the Netherlands.With his memoir as a proposed project, Cantu was accepted into the nonfiction master of fine arts program at the University of Arizona in Tucson in 2014. The winner of a 2017 Whiting Award for emerging writers, he has also published essays and translations. by Anita Snow, The Associated Press Posted Mar 9, 2018 12:39 pm PDT Last Updated Mar 9, 2018 at 4:01 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Dec. 15, 2010 file photo an American flag flutters in the wind on a nearby resident’s home near a U.S. Border Patrol vehicle near where agent Brian Terry was killed, northwest of Nogales, Ariz.

Medical association defends suspension of GP training due to NHS delaysMedical association defends suspension of GP training due to NHS delays

first_imgBy Evie AndreouThe suspension of non-mandatory training for doctors interested in becoming General Practitioners (GPs) under the National Health Scheme (NHS) was the only option given the delays in implementing the new system, the chairman of the Cyprus Medical Association (CyMA) Petros Agathangelou has said.One of the key changes in the planned under the NHS is that patients will be entitled to select their doctor from a pool of family GPs who will be their first point of contact with the healthcare system, and will decide whether referral to a specialist doctor is warranted.The CyMA assumed the responsibility of training doctors as GPs ahead of the NHS, whose first phase was expected to be implemented this July, but the date has been pushed back.Health Minister, Philippos Patsalis, said last month that vital software was not yet ready and that that the best case scenario for implementation of the NHS would now be September 2016.GP courses had started last October and the decision to suspend them was taken by the new board of CyMA, Agathangelou told the Cyprus Mail.He said that after studying and discussing the issue it was decided that it was not fair for the association and the participating doctors to be burdened with training costs for something that it was not likely to be implemented any time soon.“It was an ethical and right decision for our fellow doctors as this course would not contribute anything to their future as GPs. The course was of a technocratic nature, not academic, and it is not a prerequisite for them to work as GPs under the NHS,” he said.He added that the training of the doctors was in fact the responsibility of the health ministry and the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) but that acting on good faith the previous CyMA board went ahead and organised the course and assumed the costs.“There is difficulty in the implementation of a functional and viable NHS… taking into consideration the difficulties the involved parties are facing we decided to discontinue the courses. At a time when we haven’t yet decided on its [the NHS] basic principles how can we implement courses as if the system will be up and running tomorrow?” Agathangelou said.He added that the medical world was in full support of a functioning and viable NHS and that CyMA will officially express their views on the scheme’s strategic philosophy after they receive information from all involved parties.Patsalis’ remarks on the delay on the implementation of the NHS last month, sparked a public spat between his ministry and the HIO, which is been held responsible as the software programme falls under its responsibility.The head of the HIO Thomas Antoniou responded that the delay was due to the lack of a proper legal framework and that delays concerning the software were not his organisation’s fault.Initially, the first phase of the NHS which was a term in the island’s €10bn bailout was to be implemented by July 2015, the second in January 2016 and the third in July 2016.   You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoGundry MDHow To Make Your Dark Spots Fade (Effortless 2 Minute Routine)Gundry MDUndoGundry MD | SupplementsTop Cardiologist: It’s Like Giving Your Body A New “Battery”Gundry MD | SupplementsUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
