Heres what Mark Zuckerberg has to say about Facebooks Supreme Court

first_img Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, left, chats with Harvard Law School Professor Noah Feldman and Jenny Martinez, the Dean of Stanford Law School. Facebook Creating an independent board to review Facebook’s decisions sounds like a sensible way to handle the social network’s toughest calls on what content stays or goes. But the company is finding out that putting such a panel together will be a daunting challenge. Facebook detailed some of the issues in a 44-page report Thursday, summing up feedback gathered around the world. The company said it spoke with roughly 900 people and reviewed more than 1,200 public comments about the proposed 40-person panel, which has been dubbed the Facebook “Supreme Court.” The report, called “Global Feedback & Input on the Facebook Oversight Board for Content Decisions,” was accompanied by a video chat between CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Jennifer Martinez, dean of Stanford Law School, and Noah Feldman, a Harvard Law School professor who pitched the idea to Facebook last year. Here are four takeaways from their discussion. 1. The board’s role could become bigger in the future Facebook doesn’t just make decisions about what content to leave up or pull down. The social network also uses a bunch of signals like what posts you comment on or “like” to decide what it displays higher in your News Feed.  The board could have the power to influence Facebook’s policies and how the content should be “treated” in the future, Zuckerberg said.  “There’s a lot that this board could eventually do,” Zuckerberg told his guests. “The goal is going to be to start narrowly and then eventually over time expand its scope and hopefully include more folks in the industry as well.” 2. How quickly the board moves will be a big challenge Facebook has faced criticism for not pulling down hate speech, bullying or misinformation quickly enough. Even Zuckerberg has acknowledged that the company should’ve acted more swiftly to prevent a doctored video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from spreading.  Moving quickly will be a “make or break” issue for the board’s credibility, Martinez told Zuckerberg.  Facebook needs a way to refer cases to the board before the content goes viral, Zuckerberg said. “It’s not that we’re ever going to be out of the business of having to make these decisions ourselves internally,” he said. 3. International courts could provide a model for Facebook’s content moderation board Facebook crosses international borders, so the board will have to strike a balance between protecting the principles of free speech and the local laws that govern what is and isn’t acceptable. That’ll be tricky because some countries, notably the US, have an almost anything-goes approach, while others, such as Germany and France, curtail some forms of expression, such as hate speech.  Martinez, a scholar in human rights law who worked on the UN tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, says international courts could provide an example for the board to study. She said international courts try to set a floor in terms of what all members are expected to protect. She cited the European Court of Human Rights, which hears cases in which a country is alleged to have breached civil or political rights. The court’s floor, called the “margin of appreciation,” allows it to balance fundamental principles while accommodating differences in local laws, cultures and needs, she said. A similar setup for Facebook’s content moderation board might help it weigh free speech principles and local legal and cultural issues, though tricky questions would still remain for countries that lean toward suppressing expression. 4. The board will have to prove through its actions that it’s legitimate  Facebook needs to show the public that the board isn’t just a fall guy for the social network when it makes a decision that sparks public backlash. Ultimately, that means the board will have to overturn decisions that Facebook previously made. “Legitimacy ultimately … will be real when people see decisions that are different from what Facebook would otherwise have decided to do,” Feldman said. Facebook also has to decide how it will select the board members, and some have suggested that it create a selection committee.  That still might not be enough to convince the public the board is independent, Feldman said. “Maybe there’s a hybrid solution, you know, where we can choose some of the people and then those people could participate alongside Facebook and external input on choosing the next set of people,” Feldman said.

Health remains key challenge in Indias development Ram Nath

first_imgWardha: President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday said health remains a key challenge in India’s development, but the Centre was committed to tackle it through its various programmes. He said lack of access to health services, malnutrition and neglected tropical diseases put severe constraints on the country. Kovind was addressing a gathering on the occasion of the golden jubilee celebrations of the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS) here. Also Read – Man held for slapping woman employee at Gurgaon toll plaza booth Advertise With Us “As a country with 18 per cent of world population, we carry 20 per cent of the prevalence of global diseases. We are challenged by the triple burden of communicable, non-communicable and new and emerging diseases,” the President said. “Health remains a key development challenge for India. Lack of access to health services, malnutrition and neglected tropical diseases place severe constraints on us.

Advertise With Us An institution inspired by the life and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi could have only prospered in the manner, he added. On the occasion, he condoled the deaths of people in the devastating floods in various parts of the country, including Maharashtra. “My prayers are with the families who lost their near and dear ones. I hope and wish that those affected are able to get back to normal life soon. I commend the services of the central government and respective state governments for bringing relief in flood-affected areas…,” the President said. Earlier, Kovind visited the Sevagram Ashram here, where Mahatma Gandhi had stayed for over a decade. “The four walls of the humble hermitage have much to teach and inspire us. As I walked through its courtyard, my mind ran through Gandhiji’s struggles and his sacrifice, trying to fathom how much we as a nation owe him. Sevagram Ashram was the centre of many of his experiments with satya, ahimsa and emancipation of humanity,” he said. “The place has a deep imprint of his attachment to cleanliness and health. He began his leprosy programme at the ashram,” the President said. “It was here that he pioneered community work on sanitation, an idea that continues to inspire us as we work for Swachh Bharat and for open defecation free India,” Kovind added.last_img read more

Nusli Wadia writes to SEBI urging action against independent directors of 3

first_imgNusli WadiaTwitterChairman of the Wadia group of companies Nusli Wadia has urged capital market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) to take action against three independent directors from three Tata group companies.Wadia alleged that these directors had made wrong declarations in the company annual reports, Business Standard (BS) reported.In his letter, Wadia named Tata Steel independent directors Andrew Robb and Mallika Srinivasan, and Nasser Munjee, an independent director on the boards of Tata Chemicals and Tata Motors.In the eight-page letter to SEBI Chairman Ajay Tyagi, Wadia requested Tyagi to conduct a “full and impartial investigation” under listing regulations on the reports submitted by the audit committees of the respective companies, BS reported.Citing annual reports, the audit committees have filed their responses with SEBI. The audit committee had also examined the charges made by Wadia.But Wadia said that Munjee, the chairman of the audit committee of both Tata Motors and Tata Chemicals, is not independent and the committee, therefore, was “wrongfully and illegally constituted”.”The audit committee of these companies, whose chairman though not independent, de facto and de jure, reported to Sebi that there has been compliance with all legal requirements and corporate governance standards,” Wadia wrote in his letter to SEBI.The chairman of Wadia family-owned conglomerate pointed out that committees were constituted in violation of the Companies Act.”The agenda is how to ensure independent spirit of the independent directors. There is a lot of criticism on whether the independent directors are really independent. This is a problem worldwide. All matters related to the role of independent directors are being discussed very thoroughly,” BS quoted Sebi’s whole-time member S Raman.This is the second letter Wadia has written to the regulator, alleging the independent director had a direct conflict of interest. He wrote the first letter on January 6 when he was holding position of as chairman of the nomination and remuneration committees of these companies.As an independent director, Nusli Wadia served on the boards of Tata Steel, Tata Motors and Tata Chemicals for over 25 years. Earlier, in October last year, when Cyrus Mistry was ousted as Tata Sons chairman, Wadia supported him. In January, Mistry and Wadia were removed from the boards of all Tata companies.Last year, Wadia had sent a defamation notice to the Tata Sons board asking it to withdraw “false” and “defamatory” allegations made against him or face a lawsuit. The industrialist had said that the company’s plans to remove him as an independent director had harmed his reputation and public image.last_img read more

Troops likely to get authority to protect border agents

first_imgUS Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Special Response Team (SRT) officers are seen through concertina wire at the San Ysidro Port of Entry after the land border crossing was temporarily closed to traffic in Tijuana, Mexico 19 November. Photo: ReutersUS president Donald Trump is likely to give US troops authority to protect immigration agents stationed along the US border with Mexico if they come under threat from migrants seeking to cross into the United States, a US official said on Monday.Ahead of US congressional elections earlier this month, Trump denounced the approach of a caravan of migrants as an “invasion” that threatened American national security, and he sent thousands of US troops to the border to help secure it.Currently, the troops do not have authority to protect US Customs and Border Patrol personnel. The new authority could be announced on Tuesday, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.US officials briefly closed the busiest border crossing from Mexico early on Monday to add concrete barricades and razor wire amid concerns some of the thousands of Central American migrants at the border could try to rush the crossing.Northbound lanes at the San Ysidro crossing from Tijuana to San Diego, California, were temporarily closed “to position additional port hardening materials,” a US CBP spokesperson said.A Department of Homeland Security official, who requested anonymity, told reporters on a conference call that US officials had heard reports some migrants were intending to run through border crossings into California.The closing was rare for the station, which is one of the busiest border crossings in the world with tens of thousands Mexicans heading every day into the United States to work or study.”Today was a lost day of work. I already called my boss to tell her that everything was closed and I did not know what time I would be able to get in,” said Maria Gomez, a Mexican woman who crosses the border every day for work. “I cannot believe this is happening.”Trump had remained mostly silent about the caravan since the Nov. 6 vote, but on Monday he posted a photo on Twitter showing a fence that runs from the beach in Tijuana into the ocean now covered with razor wire.Critics charged that his talk of a migrant “invasion” was an effort to rouse his political base ahead of the elections.Officials have stressed that the 5,900 active-duty US troops on the border are not there in a law enforcement capacity and that there are no plans for them to interact with migrants.Instead, their mission is to lend support to the CBP, and they have been stringing up concertina wire and erecting temporary housing.The commander of the mission told Reuters last week that the number of troops may have peaked, and he would soon look at whether to begin sending forces home or shifting some to new border positions.About 6,000 Central Americans have reached the border cities of Tijuana and Mexicali, according to local officials. More bands of migrants are making their way toward Tijuana, with around 10,000 expected.Hundreds of local residents on Sunday massed at a monument in a wealthy neighborhood of Tijuana to protest the arrival of the migrants, with some carrying signs that said “Mexico first” and “No more migrants.”Last month, thousands of Central American migrants began a long journey from Honduras through Mexico toward the United States to seek asylum.Other bands of mostly Salvadorans followed, with a small group setting off on Sunday from San Salvadorlast_img read more

Record spring results from airlines IATA

first_img Share Posted by Thursday, May 3, 2018 << Previous PostNext Post >> Record spring results from airlines: IATA Travelweek Group GENEVA — The world’s airlines are posting record-setting load factors, according to the latest global passenger traffic stats from IATA.New data just released by IATA for March 2018 indicate passenger demand (measured in revenue passenger kilometers, or RPKs) was up 9.5%, compared to the same month a year ago, the fastest pace in 12 months.Capacity (available seat kilometers, or ASKs) grew 6.4% and load factor climbed 2.3 percentage points to 82.4%, which set a record for the month, following on the record set in February. All regions except for the Middle East posted record load factors.“Demand for air travel remains strong, supported by the comparatively healthy economic backdrop and business confidence levels. But rising cost inputs –particularly fuel prices – suggest that any demand boosts from lower fares will moderate going into the second quarter,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.North American airlines posted a 9.5% traffic rise in March compared to the year-ago period, well above the 5-year average growth rate of 3.6%. Capacity climbed 4.9% and load factor was up 3.5 percentage points to 83.5%, which was the second highest among the regions.last_img read more

Servicing Gains Offset Production Declines in Q3

first_imgServicing Gains Offset Production Declines in Q3 in Origination, Servicing Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Servicing Rights Profits Purchase Loans Refinance Service Providers 2013-12-03 Tory Barringer December 3, 2013 462 Views center_img Mortgage loan production suffered among independent mortgage bankers throughout the third quarter–but servicing revenues are helping to ease the pain for those with portfolios, “”Richey May & Co.””:http://richeymay.com/ revealed in its latest quarterly trend report.[IMAGE]The survey was put together using Richey May Select, the advisory company’s analytical technology designed to provide benchmarking information taken exclusively from independent mortgage firms, a group rapidly gaining market share.Among independent companies, overall production fell 12.4 percent quarter-over-quarter, owing largely to a 42 percent decline in refinances, Richey May reported. (According to origination data gathered by technology provider “”Ellie Mae””:http://www.elliemae.com/, refinance share averaged 44 percent throughout the quarter.)Loan margins also fell, dropping 42 basis points compared to Q2.Overall, net income declined 60 basis points from the second quarter, though a 0.07 percent increase in the average value of servicing portfolios helped offset losses at those with servicing interests, Richey May reported.””Servicing is definitely playing a role in offsetting the declines in origination volume,”” said Ken Richey, managing partner at Richey May. “”Some lenders have sold portions of their servicing portfolios to compensate for decreases in production and profitability. Others are incorporating servicing as part of their business models, which can be a good option for lenders that can handle the cash flow constraints that are typical of mortgage servicing.””Among other findings: Richey May observed some easing in credit standards, with the share of borrowers with FICO scores less than 700 increasing to 30 percent in Q3.

1 The Titanic Belfast Northern Ireland Celebrat

first_img1. The Titanic, Belfast, Northern IrelandCelebrate the centenary year of the launching of the legendary liner by visiting the £100 million Titanic Belfast exhibition which opened on 31 March. Discover the story of the most famous ship in history in the place where it was built, from its birth in boomtown Belfast to its resting place on the seabed.2. The Mary Rose, Portsmouth, EnglandThe Mary Rose, somewhat bizarrely, sank accidently while doing battle with the dastardly French fleet in 1545. Dramatically raised from the depths in 1982, the Rose went on display in Portsmouth, but it is currently under wraps. You’ll be able to see her again later this year when a new Mary Rose museum opens. Apparently you can meet the crew – presumably not the original crew?3. The Eduard Bohlen, NamibiaThe 1600km-long Namib Desert in southern Africa is the world’s oldest desert. Fascinating! It’s also a pretty weird place. One of its weirdest features is the wreck of the Eduard Bohlen, which thanks to shifting sands now lies in dunes a quarter of a mile inland. In 1909 it ran aground in the thick fog that has been the cause of many shipwrecks, hence the appropriate name of this part of the world – the Skeleton Coast.4. USS Arizona, Hawaii, USAFor fans of military history, and Ben Affleck’s finest hour but for Armageddon, a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbour, Oahu, Hawaii, is a must. Built on the water over the wreck of the battleship USS Arizona, scuppered in the Japanese attack on December 7, 1941, the site is a poignant memorial to that fateful day in history. Ahoy there! With Titanic Belfast drawing the crowds and Titanic 3D on the silver screen, see some amazing shipwrecks for real. We show you where to get wrecked with 7 of the world’s best. 5. Shipwreck Bay, GreeceIt’s got several names – Navagio, Shipwreck Bay or Smugglers’ Cove (which sounds like a pirate ship-themed kids’ adventure playground in Disneyland… and actually, it is), but whatever it’s called, it’s a proper stunning beach on the island of Zakynthos. The beach boasts an unusual feature – the wreck of a drug smugglers’ boat abandoned when they fled the Greek navy. Fans of Greek drug boats should also check da wreck at Laconia in the Peloponnese.6. Zenobia, Larnaca, CyprusSome might say that the only way to get completely wrecked is to go diving – as in scuba diving. The Zenobia is up there in any wreck divers’ top 10. Close to Larnaca in Cyprus, it’s easily accessible. Why not combine it with a family holiday? The kids can splash about in the shallows while you explore the Zenobia, which sank on her first voyage in 1980 with 104 articulated lorries on board.7. Moynaq, Uzbekistan There’s not just one wreck, but many in Moynaq – the name of a once-thriving fishing port on the Aral Sea in Uzbekistan. What was once the fourth-largest inland sea, shrank by 90% when two rivers that fed the sea were diverted for irrigation and the water evaporated, leaving boats quite literally, high and dry.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Mapcenter_img Related10 best things to do in Belfast: a local’s guideA visit to Belfast Castle, Cavehill and City Hall just scratch the surface of a weekend in the Northern Irish capital.

Police search for fraudsters

first_imgPolice are looking for two men who reportedly defrauded a man of €140,000.A 64-year-old British national, who was a resident of Pervolia in 2012 and 2013, told police that during this time two men, a 70-year-old resident of Limassol and a 66-year-old from Mazotos, took €140,000 from him to invest in shares in various companies abroad.They persuaded him to make two payments to the older man’s UK account from Cyprus, telling him the shares were profitable and he would gain about €29 million.When in April 2017, the alleged victim demanded his money and documents about the shares he had bought, the 70-year-old reportedly told him his bank accounts were frozen.According to police, he gave him a fake court decree that he claimed was issued by the Nicosia district court.The document said the court ordered banking institutions to pay a total of approximately €89 million to the 70-year-old.Arrest warrants have been issued for the two suspects who are wanted for conspiracy to commit felonies, money laundering, counterfeiting and circulating fake documents.They were put on a stop-list and are not allowed to leave Cyprus.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
