Ellen Frowns at ‘Abuses’ on Social Media

first_img– Advertisement – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has denounced the spate of abuses that has been posted on social media by Liberians during the recent elections , suggesting that the country’s democracy is at stake if it continues.The President’s statement came yesterday, less than two hours after Jerome Korkoya, chairman of the National Elections Commission (NEC), declared campaign open for the runoff between George Weah of the opposition Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and Vice President Joseph N. Boakai of the governing Unity Party (UP).The runoff, Korkoya said, will be held on November 7, since none of the 20 political parties that participated in the October 10 presidential elections obtained the 50 percent plus one of the total votes cast as required by the Liberian Constitution.However, President Sirleaf said she has observed that a week following the end of the first round of voting on October 10, her attention was drawn to a surge of abuses displayed on social media (mostly on Facebook) by Liberians, which she said are extremely inimical to the survival of the country’s peace and democracy.“We condemn the abuse and misuse of social media through the use of invectives, hate speech and outright vulgarity, which denigrates adversaries with whom we might hold disagreement,” the President said.She said that in light of the progress her government has made, “I call on our fellow citizens to remain civil, responsible and continue to be tolerant of diverging opinions and views that might not necessarily be favorable to ours.”She said further that resorting to profanities on social media contributes nothing to the national discourse, “but only serves to taint our national and international image.“We must all express our indignation to this unacceptable way of politicking and seek to continue the decent democratic values that have brought us this far as a nation and people,” the President said.As Liberians pat themselves on the back for peacefully voting in the October 10 polls, all must continue to demonstrate the same path of love for country by and through each of their individual actions, she said.The President also admonished that all Liberians should focus on how they will consolidate the democratic gains made over the last 12 years by voting peacefully and nationalistically, respecting the law and keeping the peace for the greater good of Mama Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sadness at death of Pat Gillespie aged 102

first_imgStrabane man Pat Gillespie, who famously never acknowledged the border between Strabane and Lifford, has sadly passed away at the age of 102.He was well known as the King of Strabane, who filled his home with all sorts of inventions.But in October 2017 there was shock and revulsion after a gang of masked make broke into his home. Pat, then aged 100, branded those who robbed him as “absolute scum”.The Strabane legend was pinned to a chair as three men ransacked his home in Railway Street in the town.Police said at the time that the gang forced their way through a window of the back of his home and made off cash. Mr Gillespie described his ordeal as “very, very frightening.”“You could just see their eyes, they were very heavily masked.”Mr Gillespie was watching television at the time of the break-in.“All of a sudden three fairly big, hefty men came buzzing past me,” he said.“Two flew by me and went through the kitchen while the other stood behind me and put his full weight on my shoulders so I couldn’t move.”The pensioner said the man who was holding him “turned my head very roughly towards the television” as the other two men ransacked his bedroom. “After five or six minutes, the other two came back into the kitchen where I was sitting and they searched me, that’s when they got the money,” he said.Mr Gillespie said he felt “powerless” throughout the ordeal.The masked gang also removed his personal alarm before leaving Mr Gillespie’s home.“It just shows how experienced they are,” he said. He described those behind the robbery as “absolute scum”, adding: “It doesn’t matter if you are old or young, to break into anybody’s house is just not right.”Sadness at death of Pat Gillespie aged 102 was last modified: August 26th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Growing competitiveness, tackling poverty

first_img5 November 2013 To compete successfully in the global marketplace, South Africa must cultivate an investor-friendly environment while continuing to roll out socio-economic infrastructure, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said on Tuesday. Motlanthe was addressing over 200 high-level representatives of government, business, labour, civil society and academia at the inaugural South African Competitiveness Forum in Midrand, north of Johannesburg on Tuesday. “Beyond the competiveness of our products, we need to prove our worth on a number of socio-economic indicators such as political stability, cultivating an investment-friendly environment, greening the economy, transparency, predictability as well as having good macro-economic policies,” Motlanthe said.‘Platform for identifying risks’ The Deputy President congratulated Brand South Africa for initiating and hosting the forum. “As a first of its kind in South Africa, this forum will give leaders from all spheres a platform for debating our country’s competitiveness, as well as arriving at a common understanding of how to improve the competitiveness of our economy. “By acting in concert, this forum may prove to be an invaluable tool in the identification, management and minimisation of risks in governance, delivery systems, institutional arrangements and other existing procedures.” Motlanthe said South Africans had over the years made good strides in positioning the country as a stable democracy with the necessary institutions and mechanisms for attracting investment. This had resulted in significant investments in South Africa’s automotive, manufacturing, mining, petrochemical and other industries.Challenges of poverty, unemployment However, he said, “we have also fallen short of the development trajectory necessary to place us on par with many of our competitors. These glaring challenges show themselves through high rates of inequality, poverty and unemployment, especially amongst young people, who constitute the majority of our population. “Confronted by the challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment, we are acutely aware that improvement in the competitiveness of our nation is proportional to strides in these critical areas that define the character of our nation today.” Motlanthe said the government had gone a long way towards improve the social wage through a raft of measures including social grants and investments in education, health care and human settlements. The government’s interventions were aimed at drastically improving training and skills sets, widening access to productive resources, lessening the burden of disease, and generally trying to improve the standards of living for all. Progress ‘predicated on innovation’ Motlanthe said that societal progress in the 21st century was predicated on innovation, adding that South Africa had to maintain its innovative edge in all key sectors of society, particularly the economy. “In turn, innovation assumes that our research and development capacity as a country is of international standards. Research and Development creates conditions in which innovation can keep thriving at every stage. “Logically, this then suggests that our education system be sound and solid, especially in the key areas of science, mathematics and ICT, all of which are the prime drivers of national development.” At the same time, Motlanthe said, education alone would not in the short-term reduce inequalities and unemployment. “We must therefore, in the short to medium term, implement measures that will lead to more rapid growth and creation of jobs. “Using state levers, we need to support growth and development through sound macro-economic policy, strong industrial policy plans and cultivating an investment-friendly environment.” Motlanthe said the South African Competitiveness Forum was an ideal platform for engaging on the challenge of achieving sustainable competitiveness, noting: “Economic growth activities that occur under fair market conditions and that enhance and restore the health of natural and social systems are the essence of sustainable competitiveness. “This forum is in a good position to contribute to a South Africa that continues to become a better place than it was before 1994.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Marketers Concerned About Transparency of Programmatic

first_img Around 300 agency and client-side marketers responded to the survey commissioned by Advertiser Perceptions on behalf of TMBI, revealing industry-wide skepticism in two categories: audience targeting, and site credibility. “Big brands are going to want to do business with brands that offer a well lit, transparent environment,” says Rich Sutton, chief revenue officer of TMBI. It is good news for magazine brands, whose greatest asset in a crowded advertising space is their cultural credibility. Most magazines have track records of consistant and reliable content. If marketers are insecure about the “safety” of their brands, what better place for their dollars than in the hands of a legacy publisher? Sutton stresses that this survey does not mean that programmatic is going away. TMBI itself takes in revenues from programmatic buys, and he says that marketers love the high ROI of low cost purchases.  There is a crisis of confidence among CMOs and marketers when it comes to transparency in programmatic, the latest white paper released by Trusted Media Brands claims. Prev1 of 6NextUse your ← → (arrow) keys to browsecenter_img Flip through to see the survey results for yourself. In short, the concern is this: marketers don’t feel that they have enough information about or control over where their programmatic ads land. In a world of fake news websites and social media accountibility, advertising on a website with offensive material can lead to a negative conversation about your brand in the greater media eco system. Marketers, the survey shows, feel that programmatic sellers are too opaque when it comes to controlling for such errors. Seventy-three percent of respondents agreed that the ability to buy ads programmatically is important. However, 81 percent of respondent agreed that “given recent news concerning credibility of digital sources, it’s even more important to advertise on the right site.” Prev1 of 6NextUse your ← → (arrow) keys to browselast_img read more

How Musicians Can Creatively Use Artificial Intelligence In Music

first_img https://twitter.com/withAlysia/status/1050853653823803395 Facebook How Musicians Can Creatively Use Artificial Intelligence In Music Our CEO Dr. Maya Ackerman on @siliconvalleysuccesses . The episode will air on KMTV 15. #withalysia #startup #ceo #interview #music pic.twitter.com/aRnOZbEiG3— ALYSIA (@withAlysia) October 12, 2018 Computer-assisted music isn’t new, but being able to train AIs on different playlists of examples opens up new dimensions for human creativityPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Oct 25, 2018 – 4:16 pm Artificial intelligence adds new calculations to the craft behind creating original music. Dr. Ackerman’s Alysia team’s software is the latest attention-getting AI to jump into the challenge.The “computational creativity” programmed by Alysia results from training their AIs on pop songs. The company explains they view “a computer as more than just a tool, but instead as a potential co-creative partner.”Machine-enabled music creation has a storied history all its own, with landmarks such as 1990’s MIDI software Band-in-a-Box alternatively attracting ridicule and gaining respect for fleshing out fresh ideas. As electronic music producers demonstrate, an artist’s musicianship is ultimately what generates and selects between original elements created by computer, but computational creativity adds a new wrinkle based on the musical training that is input into artificial assistants. From Artificial Intelligence To Song Creation how-musicians-can-creatively-use-artificial-intelligence-musiccenter_img Describing a three-song “Invisible Tides” playlist created with Alysia, Digital Music News revisited more of algorithmic music’s past to conclude, “maybe it’s time to embrace our robot friends.” In varying degrees, this is an embrace that has already happened, for example song recommendations on music services, analysis of what makes a hit, and many varied experiments with AI. Of course it’s what people do with their musical equipment that makes all the difference.Dr. Ackerman is part of a growing community of computer science innovators hoping to increase the range of ways anyone can boost their own ideas thanks to computerized music creation. As easy as it is to put down the derivative work of computer programs expected to generate originality, the tech is still young. But it is already possible to train different AI programs so that an artist could potentially bounce their pop/soul ideas against one AI and their rock-ballad fragments against another.At a minimum, creatives interacting playfully with machines that pop out “original” music can amp up their own search for what’s new using their minds and their fingers. For instance: What do you think about this, Alysia? How about if I change this word here and the melody goes up? What different major seventh chords could work with the fill after the bridge?This human dialog between our bodies and our instruments is bringing new things to mind. AI original music is already diverting. As with implementing most tech with music, in the right hands, it might be epic.IBM’s Watson To Bring Artificial Intelligence To The 2018 GRAMMYsRead more News Twitter Email last_img read more

Are Houstons Sinking Suburbs Suffering Worse Flooding

first_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /03:37 Listencenter_img Source: Journal of the International Society for the Prevention of Mitigation of Natural HazardsTop map shows worse subsidence in blue since the 1990s. Bottom map shows it moving northeast in 2011.What made last month’s flooding, especially in north Harris County, so bad?Simple: a whole lot of rain says Mike Talbott, executive director of the Harris County Flood Control District.“It has a lot to do with this phenomenal rainfall … people don’t want to talk about the rainfall,” Talbott tells News 88.7.But people are talking about how other factors, besides the massive rainfall, may have made things worse. And one those people is a professor of geology at the University of Houston, Shuhab Khan.“It’s making it worse,” says Khan.What Professor Khan believes is making flooding worse in certain neighborhoods is a geological condition Houston and many cities suffer from and have for decades:  subsidence. It’s where many acres of ground sink.Historically in Harris County, subsidence has been worse in areas where over the decades, groundwater and oil and gas have been sucked out from under the ground, causing the land to sink by fractions of an inch a year, in some places by feet over many years.Could it be that today, the ground that homes are built on is sinking in different places than it did decades ago and thus, could this make flooding worse in places where people say, “It never flooded like this before.”When Professor Khan looked at maps showing where last month’s flooding damaged the most homes, those maps looked eerily similar to ones he’d drawn as part of a study two years ago, maps showing where subsidence was happening in Harris County.“Those are the areas that are areas that are subsiding very rapidly. North and northwest. It used to be Jersey Village. (Now) it’s moving northeastwards, north and northeast these days. But it is the same area where the flooding was,” Khan tells News 88.7.Khan says one subsidence zone is drifting northeast towards the Woodlands and seems to be affected by fault lines that traverse the area. Khan is not saying that subsidence alone is why there’s flooding.“Of course there would be flooding. But maybe not huge,” says Khan.At the Flood Control District, Mike Talbott does not agree.“It’s not subsidence,” Talbott told us. “It didn’t have any role in this event, it really was about the rainfall. This was phenomenal rainfall that caused some phenomenal flooding. “Source: Harris County Flood Control DistrictPink shows areas of major flooding April 18thTalbott doesn’t deny subsidence exists. He says the county has been studying it for decades.“Thirty years ago we got ahead of the curve and went ahead and did a major joint study with a bunch of agencies to understand the phenomenon,” says Talbott.Talbott says from those studies they learned that where subsidence is occurring in Houston’s northern suburbs, it’s not like a bowl where if your house is at the bottom you’ll be flooded worse.Instead, he says the sinkage occurs over such a wide area of many square miles that it does not significantly change the depth of the flooding, nor he says will it slow down the flow of creeks in those areas.“Cypress Creek, the subsidence actually is along the creek, the headwaters subsided nearly the same rate as mouth of the stream so the floodplains would move with the land. You wouldn’t have a change in the flow carrying capacity of the system,” Talbott tells News 88.7.Put another way, Talbott is saying that even though the northwest suburbs may have sunk a few feet, they’ll still drain just as fast. He says that’s because those suburbs are still about a hundred feet higher than where the water is headed, which is the Houston Ship Channel near downtown.“The stream just wouldn’t recognize that slight of a change in its slope to really affect the flooding in those areas. It’s a very weak relationship between subsidence and flooding for this region,” Talbott says.It is a complicated geological occurrence that has a long history of debate, a debate renewed when homes flood and people want to know why. 1995 Harris County Subsidence Study Sharelast_img read more
