New list of 10 Stories the World Should Hear More About released

“In today’s round-the-clock media world, reporters often find themselves flooded with news, and sometimes urgent and important stories are simply overlooked,” Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Shashi Tharoor told the UN News Service.“Our goal is to draw attention to those stories that must be told,” he stressed.The annual list draws on extensive consultation with UN departments, field offices and programmes. The order does not reflect any ranking. The 2006 stories are:Development challenges top the agenda in Liberia as it recovers from years of civil strife;Asylum seekers face challenges amid efforts to stem flows of illegal migrants;As the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) moves boldly towards an historic election, humanitarian concerns continue to demand attention;Nepal’s children have become the often-overlooked victims of ongoing strife in their country, their plight exacerbated by poverty and abuse;In Somalia, the security vacuum is compounding effects of drought;The plight of millions of people who have languished in protracted refugee situations for years – and sometimes decades – has serious humanitarian and security implications;Efforts to aid victims of the South Asian earthquake have achieved success, but reconstruction tasks remain enormous;In many parts of the world, an alarming number of children are held in detention without sufficient cause;Despite widespread perceptions that water basins shared by countries tend to engender hostility rather than collaborative solutions, water is an often untapped resource of fruitful cooperation;Gearing up for October elections, Côte d’Ivoire faces fear that a renewed eruption of violence will destroy any progress towards political reconciliation.

Slowing population growth is key to saving the planet says David Attenborough

He told Evan Davis that captive animals are sometimes best used to illustrate the scientific points made.Sir David said if programmes illustrate their stories with “a polar bear that happened to have been born in a zoo, and you could never get that in the wild without risking the polar bear’s life or indeed your own – then that’s biology. That’s perfectly fair”. A mother polar bear and two cubs are shown during the filming of  "Frozen Planet" He said: “Some programmes set out to deceive and some do not.”Nonetheless, there is a lot of veracity involved in just having the picture there and it’s fair dues for someone to say, ‘OK if you say that’s going to happen, show me’.” Slowing population growth is key to protecting the planet, Sir David Attenborough has said.In an interview with BBC Newsnight, the veteran broadcaster discussed the state and future prospects of the world’s environment.The 92-year-old told the programme: “In the long run, population growth has to come to an end. There are some reasons for thinking that will happen almost inevitably.”One of the reasons that the population has increased as fast as it has is that people like me are living longer than we did. And so there are more and more people just because the expectancy of life has increased.”Sir David told the BBC he has been reassured by a change in attitudes towards the planet, symbolised by the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015. A mother polar bear and two cubs are shown during the filming of  “Frozen Planet”Credit: Jason Roberts/AP He said: “And we have got that agreement; it is true that President Trump doesn’t go along with it. To what extent the United States is going to withdraw from it, we’ll see.”Sir David added: “My suspicion is that people will realise that actually the United States’ attitude is outdated, it doesn’t apply any more, and I think that will be overcome.”There’s a groundswell internationally of recognising what we are doing to the planet and the disaster that awaits unless we do something.”But this is the only world we’ve got.”The interview was held to mark the release of Sir David’s new book Life On Earth and he also discussed allegations of TV trickery in nature broadcasting.In 2011 the BBC’s Frozen Planet programme was criticised after it emerged scenes of a polar bear being born had been filmed inside a zoo and inter-cut with scenes of bears in the wild. A total of 195 nations signed up to the UN deal committed to keeping the increase in global average temperature to well below 2C above pre-industrial levels.He said: “I suppose actually that up to five years ago I was really very, very pessimistic.”The Paris Agreement seemed at the time to be at last nations coming to their senses.”US President Donald Trump has pledged to withdraw from the agreement, but Sir David was doubtful whether the country would do so.

Piracy research once again shows biggest downloaders spend the most

first_imgAs the global conversation surrounding file sharing and piracy continues, a new report showing the behavior of the most extreme downloaders adds a relevant but often missing piece of information — how much those people spend. The information, which we have seen in other studies, often defies conventional thinking about piracy and people who pirate.A study conducted by Ofcom, a telecom regulator in the UK, suggests that there are several different types of file sharers. There’s the “Justifying Infringers,” the “Digital Transgressors”, the “Free Infringers”, and the “Ambiguous Infringers” according to Ofcom. Each of these groups behave in a pattern that is predictable enough to put them in these categories, and from there the group can establish other patterns of behavior from these groups.For example, the Free Infringers are the least likely to pay for anything, and are most likely to download instead of purchase. They are also less likely to spend money on their entertainment. This group is the largest group of downloaders out there, making up 42% of all the file sharers studied by Ofcom and are presumed to be about 10% of digital consumers out there. Despite being the largest group of people, these downloaders only make up 12% of all infringements.The most prolific file sharers out there are responsible for 79% of all infringed content. This group accounts for only 10% of the group studied by Ofcom, and are suspected to make up 1.2% of all web users over age 12. When more closely monitoring their browsing habits, these users seemed to behave in much the same way as everyone else. YouTube, Amazon, BBC iPlayer and iTunes made up some of their top 10 services, while service like The Pirate Bay still found their way into areas that were thought to be blocked in the UK. The biggest thing that separated these users from the “honest” users who didn’t pirate anything was how much money they spent on content.The group responsible for more piracy than anyone else, the same group who was responsible for nearly 80% of all pirated content in the world, also spend nearly three times as much money on digital content and services over six months. On every level, pirates seemed to spend more on digital content than regular consumers even though they don’t count for more than 15% of the total web population. It’s unclear whether these users are purchasing content and then sharing it online or participating in the increasingly popular “try before you buy” excuse that is commonly attributed to piracy. It’s possible these users feel they are taking the bullet for their fellow man by participating in the purchase systems they disagree so vehemently with so they can make that content free for others.This new information is unlikely to have any helpful effect on those who wish to stop piracy altogether, but it serves as further evidence that there’s no way we can approach the piracy conversation from a black and white perspective. Observing this as good vs evil, regardless of position, is unlikely to accomplish anything. In time, as creators adjust to retail techniques that are more acceptable and better regulation is in place for those who simply take because they can, an appropriate middle ground can be reached.last_img read more

Suspect identified in North Plains fatal shooting

first_imgPORTLAND — A 38-year-old man is suspected of killing another man last week in a shooting at a North Plains home where deputies had responded at least a dozen other times this year on a variety of complaints, court records show.The Washington County District Attorney’s Office named Chad Brandon Pitcher as the suspect in the Sept. 19 death of Michael Arch, 39. Both men have prolonged criminal histories, court records show, including Pitcher admitting to drug possession in 2011 and Arch pleading guilty to shooting a Washington County deputy in 1997.The case remains under investigation and deputies have made no arrests, said Deputy Jeff Talbot, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.Arch died from a gunshot wound at a house in the 16000 block of Northwest Dairy Creek Road, Talbot said. The shooter fled before deputies arrived.Sheriff’s office records show deputies had gone to the home the day before the killing to check out a complaint of someone stealing gas from the property. Other calls included a shooting on Sept. 5 when no one was injured, a report of an ex-roommate ramming another person’s car earlier the same day and a caller who claimed someone on the property was trying to run the caller over in August.It’s not clear from the records if Arch or Pitcher lived at the house or who called in the various complaints. The earlier shooting and car-ramming remain under investigation, Talbot said.last_img read more

Zimmerman trial protesters aim to keep up momentum

first_imgPORTLAND (AP) — Hundreds of people gathered in north Portland’s Peninsula Park Sunday afternoon to protest neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla.KGW reports speakers took turns using a megaphone to share concerns and frustration about what they consider racial inequality in the criminal justice system.The peaceful rally was one of many across the country after Zimmerman was found not guilty Saturday of murder or manslaughter. He says he fired in self-defense.NEW YORK — Thousands of demonstrators from across the country — chanting, praying and fighting tears — protested a jury’s decision to clear neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager, and organizers say they’ll try to maintain the momentum with vigils next weekend.Rallies on Sunday were largely peaceful as demonstrators voiced their support for 17-year-old Trayvon Martin’s family and decried the verdict. Police in Los Angeles said they arrested six people, mostly for failure to disperse, after about 80 protesters gathered in Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard and an unlawful assembly was declared. New York police said at least a dozen people were arrested on disorderly conduct charges during a rally in Times Square.last_img read more

Overseas Bases Remain a Good Value OHanlon Responds

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR To the extent that DOD’s overseas bases provide deterrence and, in some regions, a quick-response capability in the event of a foreign crisis, the nation’s overseas bases are a bargain, says Michael O’Hanlon, co-director of the Brookings Institution’s Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence.O’Hanlon’s blog post came in response to an op-ed from American University Professor David Vine earlier this week claiming the Defense Department maintains a vast array of overseas bases that waste money and harm the nation’s interests.Only a small fraction of DOD’s 600 military bases located abroad are major operational bases. For instance, the Air Force has only 16 overseas bases with major runways and associated infrastructure, O’Hanlon notes. And the cost of maintaining the nation’s overseas bases is an order of magnitude less expensive than the $85 billion figure cited by Vine. The 200,000 service members stationed abroad cost up to $8 billion a year more than the cost of stationing them at home.O’Hanlon agreed with Vine’s observation that deploying forces overseas in many instances will not speed their redeployment to where they are actually needed. Basing forces in Korea, Japan or the Middle East where they can fight directly, though, is a huge benefit if a crisis breaks out, he stated.O’Hanlon also points out that DOD has shed hundreds of overseas facilities since the end of the Cold War, and is in the process of shuttering additional locations.last_img read more

Her songs are infectious, the kind you can find playing at clubs during the summer in cities like Miami or Los Angeles. As a cross-over artist, she is gaining fans in English and Spanish, and is challenging the cookie-cutter image of a Latina pop star in media; Latinas come in all shapes and colors and can be black too, La Negra announces with her hair and dark skin.”My mom made sure that I always did know that I was beautiful, that there is nothing wrong with me, that there was something wrong with the people who saw me as if I wasn’t beautiful enough,” she told the Recording Academy’s “On Location” host Charlie Travers, about growing up and being treated differently from other Latino children because of her dark features. “A lot of people think it’s annoying that I keep talking about it, but I’m going to keep talking about it because I haven’t seen any difference.”Amara La Negra’s real name is Dana Danelys De Los Santos and was brought up in Miami in a Dominican household. As a child, she appeared on Univision’s popular Spanish-language “Sabado Gigante” hosted by iconic host Don Francisco and shared the stage with GRAMMY-winning Afro-Latina salsa legend, Celia Cruz. Now as an adult and reality TV star, La Negra has been very open about her cross-over journey as an Afro-Latina, sharing the ups and the downs, including being criticized on her appearance for not fitting the typical, media-driven “Latina” look on national TV. “A lot of people want to see change and they just want to sit back and wait for someone to go through the struggles and go through it and make the change happen,” La Negra said. “In my case, I’m willing to stand up, because I do get bashed all the time, I’m willing to take that responsibility to open doors and opportunities for other women like myself, other children like myself that have been ignored for so long.”Learn more about Amara La Negra’s sound below:”What A Bam Bam”In this single, La Negra samples Sister Nancy’s reggae hit “Bam Bam” and adds a dembow beat. The bilingual song is an anthem about being single and having fun.”Insecure”La Negra takes a break from having fun, to get real and personal in “Insecure.” “You say I’m loca, crazy/ Said I been tripping lately/ I wanna know baby/ Does that make me insecure, mi amore,” La Negra sings in one of her most vulnerable songs.”Dutty Whine”Using bilingual lyrics once again, La Negra’s “Dutty Whine” pays tribute to the Jamaican dance of the same name. “If you do that dutty whine/Make her do that dutty low, low low/Dutty whine! Dutty low!” she sings in this dancehall, pop song released in June.

Facial recognition tech coming to New York school district next week report

first_img Facial recognition 5:11 Backlash grows for police use of facial recognition (The… Now playing: Watch this: Tags 0center_img Post a comment Facial recognition technology reportedly will be tested on students. Chris Pavey/CNET To better protect kids, a school district in New York is going to give facial recognition a try. Next Monday, Lockport City School District will reportedly be the first US public school system to test a facial recognition program on students and staff. The district begins the “initial implementation phase” for the Aegis software suite, the Lockport Union-Sun and Journal reported Tuesday.Aegis’ applications include a facial recognition tool, Sentry, that alerts school officials if anyone from the local Sex Offenders Registry enters a school or if any suspended students, fired employees or known gang members enters a school, according to SN Technology, Aegis’ developer. The company also offers Protector, a shape recognition tool that recognizes the top 10 guns used in school shootings, and Mercury, a forensic search engine that can review unattended video. SN Technology confirmed all three applications would be deployed in the district. Superintendent Michelle Bradley and Robert LiPuma, director of assessment and technology, said in a statement that Lockport City School District is committed to protecting the safety of its students, staff and visitors. The statement said the district has already increased security measures in the past, like the “Raptor” ID System, which reviews the government-issued IDs presented by building visitors and alerts if they’re in the sex offender database. Aegis’ system won’t compile information on and track the movements of all District students, staff and visitors, the district’s statement said. Instead, the software is limited to identifying whether an individual whose photograph has been entered into the system database is on district property. The people in the database are those who aren’t allowed on the property. If one is identified by Aegis’ software, it will alert and at least two levels of identification by staff have to happen before action is taken before response can be fully taken. In the case of the system identifying a gun, it immediately alerts police. Police, stores and airports want to use facial recognition tech to help solve crimes, prevent shoplifting and make boarding flights more efficient. But activists see the tech casting a dark shadow over civil liberties. In May, San Francisco became the first US city to prohibit police from using the technology, and critics continue to press local governments to implement bans.The ACLU has also spoken out against Amazon’s sale of its Rekognition tech. The group says the identification software could turn the US into a surveillance state and invade people’s privacy. Researchers have also found that the software runs into issues with recognizing women, as well as people with darker skin.Originally published May 30, 9:35 a.m. PT.Update, May 31: Adds info from SN Technologies and statement by Lockport City School District.  Share your voice Security Tech Industrylast_img read more

Fix The program cant start because apimswincrtruntimel110dll is missing

first_imgFix The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing by Martin Brinkmann on June 06, 2017 in Tutorials – 31 commentsThe Windows error message “The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing” can be a frustrating one to resolve.The error message suggests to reinstall the program “Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem”, but this is usually not the solution that fixes the issue.The following guide provides you with information on the system error that you may experience on Windows PCs, and how to fix it so that the error is not thrown anymore.The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missingPlenty of programs can throw the “can’t start” error on Windows including Skype, Adobe Premiere, Adobe, Autodesk, XAMPP, Corel Draw, Microsoft Office, and others.The error indicates that the Dynamic Link Library api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is not available on the PC. This DLL is part of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, and usually not installed alongside the software program that throws the error.While some installers may check for the availability of the DLL or the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, and install it if it is missing, many don’t.The error is caused when the following is true:KB2999226 failed to install during installation of the Visual C++ Redistributable.The solution is therefore to install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable again so that the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is registered on the PC and usable by software.Cause: KB2999226This applies to all supported client and server versions of Windows prior to Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.The Windows 10 Universal CRT is a Windows operating system component that enables CRT functionality on the Windows operating system. This update allows Windows desktop applications that depend on the Windows 10 Universal CRT release to run on earlier Windows operating systems.Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 creates a dependency on the Universal CRT when applications are built by using the Windows 10 Software Development Kit (SDK). You can install this update on earlier Windows operating systems to enable these applications to run correctly.Fixing the errorIt is recommended that you follow the guide to the letter. While you may be able to skip some steps, for instance by installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable directly, it is usually better to proceed with caution.First thing you may want to do is check if the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable is installed on the Windows PC.Tap on the Windows-key, type appwiz.cpl and hit the Enter-key. This opens the Programs and Features Control Panel applet.Scroll down on the page until you find the list of installed Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages.  If you want to know why there are so many redistributables installed, check out this article.If you see Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable in the list right-click on it and select the uninstall option. Note that you may see a 64-bit (x64) and a 32-bit (x86) version of the redistributable, and that you need to remove both.Note: A missing Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable may be the cause as well. I suggest you try and remove the 2015 Redistributable first to see if it resolves the issue after reinstallation. If it does not, you may want to repeat the process with the 2017 Redistributable.If you run into errors, for instance that Windows can’t uninstall the Microsoft Visual C++  Redistributable, then you may want to use programs like Revo Uninstaller to forcefully remove leftovers.I highly recommend that you create a backup of your Windows partition first before you do so, as things may break.Once that is done, hopefully without errors, you may want to check Windows Updates for updates. This step may not always be necessary, and some users may not want to run Windows Updates because they update their Windows machines in a different way.Tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Update, and hit the Enter-key on the keyboard. This opens the Windows Update interface.Windows may run a check automatically, or when you click on the check for updates button.Follow the instructions to install updates.Last but not least, you need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable again on the Windows machine.Visit the Microsoft Download website to download the 32-bit and/or 64-bit version of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable.Visit the Visual Studio website to download the 32-bit and/or 64-bit version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017.Run the installers to add the software to the Windows PC.If you try to load the program that threw the error “The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing” afterwards, you should notice that the program starts up fine and without throwing that error message.SummaryArticle NameFix The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missingDescriptionThe Windows error message “The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing” can be a frustrating one to resolve.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
