WhatsApp to crack down on fake news in India

This is obviously worrying for WhatsApp as India is its biggest market, with more than 200 million users.There have also been concerns in the country that political parties are using social media to spread fake news in the run-up to national elections due to be held in 2019.In the wake of all this, WhatsApp CEO Chris Daniels held a meeting with India’s IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and assured him the company would figure out how to find the source of “sinister” messages. It will also appoint a grievance officer to deal with issues in the country.“It does not need rocket science to locate a message,” Prasad said after the meeting.He added the Facebook-owned messaging service is working with law enforcement agencies plus developing plans to to educate users about fake messages.Last month WhatsApp said it is limiting the number of groups a message can be forwarded to worldwide, with further restrictions in India, where it removed a quick forward button found next to media messages.At the time, the Indian government said WhatsApp was not doing enough. It said if WhatsApp can target users for advertising purposes, it should be able to find “explosive messages filled with rumours”.

Federal Government Offers $270 Million for Fractionated Blackfeet Land

first_imgThe federal government has sent offers to nearly 7,000 landowners on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation valued at more than $270 million as part of the Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations.Landowners on and off the reservation will be receiving the offers in the coming days and will have until Jan. 17 to respond. Blackfeet Tribal Business Council Chairman Harry Barnes said the individual offers range from a few hundred dollars to more than $1 million.“This will have a tremendous impact on the community,” Barnes said.The offers to buy fractionated sections of land are part of a program established by the Department of Interior as part of the Elouise Cobell settlement. According to the federal agency, in 2012 there were more than 2.9 million fractional interests in Indian Country. Over the past century, land has become fractionated because the children of individual tribal owners have inherited undivided common ownership interests in the land. When those inheritors die, their children and family inherit the land and within a few generations dozens of people own a single piece of land. In one extreme instance, a single tract of land on South Dakota’s Crow Creek Reservation had more than 1,200 owners.The mismanagement of land and trust funds was at the center of Cobell’s class-action lawsuit against the federal government that was settled in 2009 for $3.4 billion; $1.4 billion of which went to the plaintiffs and the rest set aside to repurchase and de-fracture land.The Flathead Indian Reservation was one of the first to benefit from the program, and in 2014 and 2015 the federal government purchased $10.3 million worth of land in Flathead, Lake, Sanders and Missoula counties.In May, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell came to Browning to announce that the program was being extended to the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Over the summer, tribal and federal officials began evaluating the value of the fractured land. According to the Interior Department, there are more than 6,700 fractured tracts of land on the Blackfeet Reservation held by more than 8,100 people, totaling more than 812,000 acres, or about 60 percent of the reservation. The Blackfeet Reservation has the third highest amount of fractured land in the U.S.Barnes said at least five offers that were sent out on Nov. 28 were worth more than $1 million. Thirty percent of the individual offers were valued at more than $100,000 and another 30 percent were worth $1,000 or less.Barnes said if a landowner decides to accept the offer, they would be paid within 10 days. The land would then be handed over to the tribe within six months, Barnes said. At that point, the tribe would be able to lease the land for grazing or development. Other tribes have used the land to build community housing and water treatment plants.“We don’t know what parcels of land will be coming to the tribe and we don’t know the location or size of what we’ll be getting, but we’re hopeful we will be able to use some of it to benefit the tribal agricultural program,” he said.Barnes said as part of the program, the tribe is also offering financial management courses to its members.Although the federal government has spent over $1.9 billion on the buy-back program, federal officials said it is still not enough to purchase all of the fractured land across the country. In May, Jewell urged Congress to consider extending the program beyond 2022.Barnes echoed that hope.“This isn’t going to cure the entire problem of fractured land, but it’s going to help a lot,” he said.

From Spain: Claim Tottenham star is backup option for Real Madrid…

first_imgThese rumours are so absurd, so completely unlikely to happen, that doing anything other than treating them as ridiculous would be foolish.And unfortunately, El Desmarque linking Real Madrid to Tottenham striker Harry Kane is one such rumour.According to the website, Madrid have put the Spurs star on their shopping list as a potential replacement for Karim Benzema.It’s believed the Frenchman is in his last season at the Bernabéu and that would undoubtedly be the case if Florentino Pérez can get Kane from Tottenham.The website claims Kane has been on Madrid’s ‘agenda’ for the last two seasons and they believe he could leave if Tottenham don’t secure Champions League football this season.Embed from Getty ImagesPérez is a big fan and, while Kylian Mbappé is his first choice, he would be costly and so Kane is the backup option to the Paris Saint Germain star.Tottenham’s asking price for Kane ‘may be close to €200m’ which is still high, but one Pérez would be willing to pay as Kane ‘guarantees’ goals.Indeed, Real Madrid’s staff believe Kane would adapt well to life in Spain, mainly because Madrid are among the highest crossers in Europe, and that would suit the striker.What El Desmarque don’t seem to acknowledge is that Tottenham probably wouldn’t be interested in a sale, even for €200m. Similarly, Kane has a contract until 2024, meaning there is little way Madrid could pressure them either.Kane, of course, could be keen on the move but he’s never shown an indication he wants to leave, even when Tottenham are struggling.Instead, this feels more like El Desmarque thinking up the easiest transfer rumour possible and running away with it.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

If he has a fight coming up, he’ll order a breakfast box but will ask to have the fat cut off the baconMegan Wilson of the Bayview Cabin CafeQuietly going about his life, he’s participated in charity work for children’s hospitals, offered help and advice to aspiring boxers and supported local businesses.That’s why the boxer, a reformed character after his battle with depression, drug and alcohol abuse, is a real man of the people in these parts.HOME FIT FOR A KINGFury, Paris and kids Prince John James, Venezuela, Prince Tyson Fury II, Valencia, and Prince Adonis Amaziah live in the area.Their five-bed, four-bathroom home is worth around £550,000, according to Zoopla.That figure dwarfs the average property price in the area of £340,000, and is the most impressive home on the street.But if you have designs on Fury’s home, forget it because he’s not moving any time soon.“I used to train there (Lancaster and Morecambe) early in my career and I fell in love with the place and I’m still there today and I’ll probably never leave,” he once said.For his weekly shop, Fury and his clan normally stock up their fridge at the very modest Spar supermarket.Fury lives in a five-bedroom home in MorecambeThe property is worth around £550,000, according to ZooplaFury shuns major supermarket chains, preferring to shop at the local SparTHE MORNING RUNMornings for Fury often start with a jog along the four-and-half-mile-long Morecambe Promenade.And without fail, even when it is at its chilliest and wettest, he’s joined by a swarm of fans who join the brawler, who organises the meet, for a workout.The starting point is the VVV Health and Leisure Club, which was a haunt for Fury before it closed down in summer 2019.“Everybody is welcome. Men, women, children,” Fury told the Lancashire Post in 2015, before his bout with Wladimir Klitschko.And he’s eager to pass on his life experiences during the run too.“There is no bad conversation, there’s nothing, just pure boxing talk, general knowledge, life, nice and sensible stuff,” he said.Fury has also been known to stop and chat with well-wishers, often signing autographs if asked.Seafront promenade and beach in the seaside resort of Morecambe in summerCredit: AlamyLocals often meet up with Fury at the now closed VVV Health Club to join him on his runFOOD FOR THOUGHTAlongside the bay lies the Bayview Cabin, a tiny sea front establishment that sells fast food, drinks and ice cream to locals and tourists.Fury is a regular, often grabbing a hearty breakfast from Megan Wilson, 20, who serves there and knows when he’s in training mode.“What he gets to eat is dependent on whether he’s got a fight or not,” she told SunSport.“Sometimes he’ll order a big breakfast, but sometimes he watches his weight and tries to get something healthier.“If he has a fight coming up, he’ll order a breakfast box but will ask to have the fat cut off the bacon.”Wilson added: “He’s lovely customer, he’s very open and funny and will talk about whatever you like.“If you ask him a question about his boxing, he always gives a very honest answer.”The Bayview Cabin is a favourite breakfast spot of Fury’sMegan Wilson revealed she knows when Fury is training for a big fight because he has the fat cut off his baconTHE LOCALShould Tyson fancy a drink and a nice meal with Paris, the family often head to The Morecambe Hotel and Restaurant, where they can gobble down a variety of grilled dishes, pies, and sandwiches from the menu.The two are on familiar terms with bar staff, who wouldn’t talk to SunSport until conferring with Paris first.In 2016, Fury was filmed partying at the Kings Head with a group of mates – just days before he tested positive for cocaine.A barmaid who didn’t want to be named said she hadn’t seen Fury in there, but in March 2019 saw him taking pictures with fans at the Strawberry Gardens pub in Heysham on St Patrick’s Day.

Boston University students catch alleged art gallery thief after Super Bowl

first_img Related ABC News(BOSTON) — A man who allegedly attempted to steal art from a Boston art gallery after the New England Patriots won Super Bowl LI was stopped by three Boston University students on their way home from celebrating the Patriots’ win over the Atlanta Falcons.“I yelled out to him, ‘Hey what are you doing? Did you just take those?’” Mackenzie Thompson, one of the students, told ABC News. “And he turned around and once he saw us running after him he actually dropped the paintings and started to run away.”Thompson was walking down Boston’s Newbury Street just after midnight on Feb. 6 when he and fellow students Chris Savino and Jesse Doe heard an alarm ringing and saw a person who looked suspicious exiting the Galerie d’Orsay art gallery.The three students caught the suspect and held him until police arrived, authorities said.Surveillance video taken inside Galerie d’Orsay shows the suspect using a brick and then his own hand to break in the front door after his attempts to kick the door down failed.The suspect, identified by police as Jordan Russell Leishman, is then seen grabbing two pieces of artwork before he goes into a second room and grabs another two pieces.“He comes into the second room, walks past the beautiful, $90,000 Picasso [and] instead grabs another small $1,800 [Joan] Miró,” Camille Super, a fine art consultant at Galerie d’Orsay, told ABC News. “It didn’t seem like he knew what he was doing.”The suspect walked out of the gallery with four paintings valued at nearly $21,000, according to the police report. The paintings were not damaged.Leishman, 29, of New Hampshire, entered a not guilty plea in court on Wednesday. He is charged with breaking and entering, larceny over $250 and being a fugitive from justice due to a warrant in New Hampshire on a separate incident, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.Leishman, who remains in jail, is due back in court on March 20 for a pretrial hearing.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Harrison emotional after setting Steelers sack record

first_imgCLEVELAND, OH – James Harrison #92 of the Pittsburgh Steelers warms up prior to the game against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on October 12, 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images/File)CLEVELAND (AP) _ Surrounded by his teammates in the locker room, James Harrison accepted the game ball as his eyes flooded with tears.On a special day for Pittsburgh’s pulverizing linebacker, there was something was missing and Harrison struggled to harness his emotions.“I was thinking about my father, and how he’s not here for it,” Harrison said.The 38-year-old Harrison became the Steelers career sacks leader on Sunday as Pittsburgh recorded eight sacks and pounded the Cleveland Browns 24-9 to end a four-game losing streak.For Harrison, the milestone was somewhat bittersweet since it came in the same year that he lost his father, James Sr., who died in May at the age of 76.Harrison has kept his father’s passing mostly private, but honored him by posting photos on Instagram of him and his dad fishing together.Following the game, the Steelers paid tribute to the five-time Pro Bowler, who has helped them win two Super Bowls.Except for one season, Harrison has been with the Steelers since 2002, and his presence has kept Pittsburgh’s defense among the NFL’s hardest-hitting, most-feared units.With Cleveland driving toward a possible touchdown, Harrison sacked Browns rookie quarterback Cody Kessler for a 5-yard loss.Starting on the right side, Harrison looped around the edge and then overpowered rookie guard Spencer Drango, who had no chance and was driven backward before Kessler was brought down.It was vintage Harrison _ brutal and effective.The sack gave him 771/2 sacks, moving Harrison past Jason Gildon (77) for the most in Pittsburgh’s storied history.“It feels good,” Harrison said of the record. “It feels a lot better to get a win to stop this losing skid that we were on.”Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who has been around nearly as long as Harrison has, was excited to see his teammate set the mark.“I wish he would have gotten it at home, but that’s about the only regret I have for him is that he couldn’t be recognized at home because he deserves that as one of the best I’ve ever seen,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m glad he’s on my side. We all respect him a lot and we’re all happy for him.”Harrison came in with just two sacks this season, both coming in a loss to Baltimore two weeks ago. Last week, Harrison found himself on the sideline during Dallas’ final two drives, both ending with touchdown runs by rookie Ezekiel Elliott.Coach Mike Tomlin moved him ahead of Jarvis Jones on the depth chart, and Harrison came through the way he always has.“James has been that type of guy for us,” Tomlin said. “Usually we make decisions with him with a global perspective. Wanting him to be a part of this thing not only today, but for the remainder of the season and for `fork in the road’ type weeks. What are we preserving him for? That’s why we played him today in the manner in which we did.“I see him every day so I’m less amazed by him. Maybe I should be amazed by it, but we know that his production is not haphazard. It’s not something mystical. He works extremely hard and does so on a daily basis.”Harrison helped set the tone for Pittsburgh’s defense, which held the Browns to 33 yards rushing and 209 overall _ 126 coming in the fourth quarter when the Steelers were not rushing as much.“Everybody took responsibility to do their job and what I call play selfish,” Harrison said. “Do your job and let your teammate do his job. And I’m not saying selfish in the way of me, me, me. I’m talking about selfish in the fact that if you do your job and everyone else does their job, then everything will roll out the way you need it to.”Harrison, who grew up in Akron and played at Kent State, said setting the sacks record in Ohio didn’t make it any more significant.“It could have been anywhere,” he said. “But it wouldn’t have been more special than it already is.”___For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img
