Islamabad: Twitter, which suspended about 200 accounts of Pakistanis posting about the Kashmir issue, has denied allegations of bias by Islamabad, saying that it enforced policies judiciously and ensured impartiality of all users. Pakistani government on Monday complained to Twitter about 200 accounts that have been suspended for posting about the Kashmir issue. Over the last one week, multiple Pakistanis have taken to Twitter to report that accounts were being suspended after they posted about Kashmir.

Responding to allegations of censorship and biased moderation on its platform, a Twitter spokesperson told the Dawn newspaper that they were founded on the principles of free expression and there was no political bias in its content review teams that determine what content is considered a violation of its rules.

At Twitter no one is above our rules, the spokesperson said. Unlike Facebook, which has the greatest number of fact-checking partners in India, Twitter is yet to introduce policy on political misinformation, the report said. Twitter exists to serve the public conversation, including in national and regional events of political importance, the official said. However, the spokesperson did not comment on the reasons that led to certain accounts specified in the email being suspended. We don’t comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons, the official said. Pakistanis have been reacting on various social media accounts after India revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated it into two union territories- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has lodged a complaint with Twitter’s regional office over the suspension of accounts. We are approaching this case with a multi-pronged strategy where PTA has sent the complaint mentioning  accounts to the regional office seeking an explanation for their suspension. “We are also working on a long-term strategy through the National IT Board (NITB) so that such a situation does not arise again, Arslan Khalid, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Focal Person on Digital Media, was quoted as saying in the report. Khalid said that Twitter held no right to moderate political debates on its platform which were well within its community guidelines.
Ahmedabad: An international racket involving smugglers from Pakistan, China, Myanmar and India to import high-end drones (remotely-piloted aircraft) into the country through the north-eastern border, has been busted, the Ahmedabad unit of the DRI has said.While the shipment of drones and other related items, worth Rs 1 crore, was intercepted and seized by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) in March, the Ahmedabad-based mastermind, whose identity was not revealed, was arrested on Thursday, a release by the DRI.

It was also revealed that some Pakistan-based smugglers and their firms were also involved in the entire racket. “After these China-made drones reached Myanmar from China, these items were then illegally transported across the international border into India through Moreh and Imphal,” the DRI said. “Then, these drones were transported to Ahmedabad from Imphal using domestic airlines by wrongly declaring the prohibited cargo as a camera stand, household goods, electronic items, etc to misguide the agencies,” it added.

The money against the smuggled drones was sent by the Ahmedabad based smuggler, who has been arrested, to the Chinese company through hawala channels operating out of Mumbai, it added. While part of the smuggled cargo was seized in March from a mini truck near the air cargo complex at Ahmedabad, another lot was seized from the kingpin’s shop in Paldi area of the city, said the release. According to the DRI, this racket had been operating from 2017 and thousands of drones valued at over Rs 10 crore and involving duty evasion of nearly Rs 3 crore were smuggled into the country. The agency said, “drones can pose a threat to national security as they can be used for espionage and sabotage purposes by the enemy States and anti-national and terrorist groups”.
Rabat – PSG’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said that his team as well as the continent’s heavyweights would try to sign Leo Messi if he were to be available during the winter transfer window.“If Messi were to be available then PSG would definitely be after him. Not just one club would be after him, they all would”, said Ibrahimovic.The Argentine ace has been a mouth-watering target for PSG who are trying to take advantage of the player’s recent not-very-healthy relationship with his club FC Barcelona to seal a quick deal with the four times Ballon d’Or winner. French newspaper “Le Parisien” has listed a number of reasons why Messi might join PSG if he were to consider leaving the Catalan squad.The reasons as listed by the French paper include Messi’s recent problems with the Spanish tax authorities, the arrival of Neymar and the recent comments club directors have made about him.Lionel Messi criticized Javier Faus, Barcelona’s vice president in charge of finances, who said that he did not see any reason to extend Messi’s contract.“Mr. Faus is a person that doesn’t know anything about football and wants to run Barcelona like a business, which it isn’t,” Messi told Catalan radio RAC 1. “Barcelona is the best team in the world and deserves to be represented by the best executives.”Messi has a release clause of €250 million, but “Le Parisien” said that the transfer could be completed for around € 150-180 million. The Qatari-owned Paris saint-Germain are among the very few clubs in the planet who could afford such deal.“The PSG project has been built to achieve dreams, and if you can have Messi in the team then the dream becomes reality”, added Ibra, who also said that only the Argentine player himself would know if the rumors are true. “I don’t know his situation. He’s happy in Barcelona. It’s the media that create this atmosphere. Only Messi has the answer.”Speaking at his club’s winter training camp in Doha, Qatar, Ibrahimovic told the media that PSG is better than they were last year“I think we’re better than we were last year. We have some very good new players and the players who were here last year have improved a lot,” he said. “The players who came here last year feel more at home, they’ve settled in well. That’s very important because the first year for a professional player like Marco Verratti or Gregory van der Wiel, it’s not easy.”PSG will face Real Madrid in a friendly match on January 2nd 2014 in Qatar.© Morocco World News.

MONTREAL — Transport Minister Marc Garneau says airlines that want to fly the Boeing 737 Max 8 in Canadian airspace must first train their pilots using a flight simulator.Until recently, most U.S. airlines did not require flight simulation for pilots of the Max 8, which aviation authorities across the globe grounded in the wake of the deadly Ethiopian Airlines tragedy on March 10. The Wall Street Journal reported this week that American Airlines will start to use flight simulators, a significant shift.Garneau stressed the effectiveness of flight simulation at an event in Montreal Wednesday, drawing on his years as an astronaut.He said proper training requires more than an hour on an iPad, a reference to statements from the American Pilots’ Association that American Airlines pilots who were already qualified for Boeing 737-800s took a one-hour, iPad-based training program to fly the Max 8.The transport minister closed Canadian skies to the Max 8 last month over safety concerns arising from the erratic flight path of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 that bore startling parallels to the fatal Lion Air crash on Oct. 29.The two flights, both on Max 8s, killed a total of 346 people, including 18 Canadians.

27 July 2009The United Nations agency tasked with promoting adequate shelter for all has voiced alarm at the riots over housing and basic services that have engulfed many South African townships over the past week. Demonstrators protesting over the state of their housing, water, electricity and sanitation services have clashed with police in townships across the country, with dozens of people arrested and large amounts of property looted or destroyed.Daniel Blau, the Director of the Regional and Technical Cooperation Division of the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT), said on Friday that while food riots were not uncommon in Africa, it was unusual to have such protests for better housing and services.“While the Government of South Africa has provided important subsidies for social housing in recent years, the global crisis affects directly the urban poor in this country,” he said.“That crisis was ignited by the mismanagement of the United States housing finance sector. It has now an impact on the housing conditions of the African poor. Housing is increasingly at the core of economic and social development.”

The contract has materialised after a series of negotiations between the two sides. First of these aircraft would he delivered during the next week, while the rest in the following months. Chairman, Azam Saigol appreciated the efforts of the PIA team led by Hildebrand in finalising this contract. (Colombo Gazette)
As ministers from more than 30 countries gathered in Geneva today to determine priorities for the nearly $1 billion United Nations flash appeal for the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami, specialized UN agencies in the field are pinpointing areas for immediate action from mobilizing child trauma experts to delivering blankets.The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reported that a team of 36 child psychologists, psychiatrists, paediatricians and nurses has been mobilized to work in the four hardest-hit provinces of Thailand, where large numbers of children have lost parents, relatives and friends, and have witnessed horrific scenes of destruction.”Providing teachers with practical guidance on how to work with children going through tremendous grief is a critical first step in their recovery,” UNICEF Representative Inese Zalitis said. “Teachers can be equipped as a ‘front line’ of trauma support.”In Somalia, at the other end of the vast rim of death and destruction spawned by the 26 December tsunami, which killed at least 160,000 people, injured more than a half million others and left up to 5 million lacking basic services in a dozen nations, UNICEF is providing clean drinking water, a vital element in preventing outbreaks of diarrhoeal diseases such as cholera and typhoid which could claim tens of thousands of more lives.Meanwhile the UN refugee agency, which more commonly tends to people displaced by war, is working with other UN agencies to carry out joint relief work on the previously inaccessible Meulaboh area on the west coast of Sumatra Island, described as the tsunami’s ground zero for the terrible toll in lives and suffering exacted there.Early today a UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) team, unable to get access to military flights, chartered a private plane to Banda Aceh, the closest airport to Meulaboh, to bring in 16.5 tons of emergency relief supplies and 3.5 tons of telecommunications equipment, including plastic sheets, tents, blankets, jerry cans and kitchen sets.”We want to have an integrated response immediately, not bits and pieces coming in here and there,” said Alan Vernon, head of UNHCR’s emergency team in Banda Aceh.For their part, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP) are addressing both the short- and long-term aspects of getting food to an estimated 2 million people in need. Overall food availability in the region should be adequate to cover food needs but the damage to infrastructure, in particular roads, and lack of suitable transportation means, will hamper distribution to affected population, according to FAO.”Relief efforts must ensure that local farmers and fisher folk hit by the tsunamis receive all the assistance needed to cover their food needs and to restart farming and fishing as soon as possible,” FAO said. “With international assistance, agriculture and fisheries should have the potential to recover from this catastrophe.”And looking at the longer term goal of mitigating the deadly power of any future tsunami or other natural disaster, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the World Meteorological Organziation (WMO) are joining forces on a Global Strategy for the Establishment of a Tsunami Early Warning System, including one for the Indian Ocean.Such a system now exists only for the volcano and earthquake-prone Pacific Rim region, and it is estimated that tens of thousands of lives might have been saved had a fully functioning system covered the Indian Ocean region, giving coastal populations enough time to reach higher ground before the gigantic waves struck – hours after the initial earthquake in many of the devastated countries.”One of the many lessons we must learn from the Indian Ocean catastrophe is that tsunami can strike wherever there is a coastline,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said as he headed for Mauritius where he will present the strategy at a UN conference to review progress in reducing the problems of small islands nations.”Minimizing their impact requires cooperation and collaboration between a range of partners that go beyond the borders of any one State. Any early warning system, to be truly effective, must therefore be global in scope,” he added.At the same meeting, the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) is urging special support for small islands, whose fragile economies are highly vulnerable to natural disasters, so that they can survive and integrate more fully into the world economy.Of all the countries struck by the tsunami, the island nation of Maldives suffered the most severe damage in proportion to its economic size. Some 130 of its nearly 200 inhabited islands were seriously affected, with near-total destruction of the tourism infrastructure on several resort islands and of farming capacities in most indigenous atoll communities, and 12,000 inhabitants remain homeless.The dramatic setbacks suffered by the Maldives, and other island nations like Grenada in the Caribbean, which were hit by natural disasters in the past year such as hurricanes, “have reinforced UNCTAD’s belief that economic vulnerability should be used as a paramount criterion in the treatment of small island developing States by their development partners,” UNCTAD Officer-in-Charge Carlos Fortin said.
There will be a meeting at Brock tomorrow to plan fundraising activities to help victims of the earthquake in Japan.International Services and Programs Abroad will host the meeting on Tuesday, March 15 at 3 p.m. in International Centre 207. Volunteers will discuss how to collect money for the Canadian Red Cross to help those impacted by the earthquake.The earthquake, which at a magnitude of 8.9 is estimated to be one of the largest ever, caused a massive tsunami that wiped out several towns and villages in Japan. The confirmed death toll is nearly 2,000, and more than 15,000 are missing.In the past, the Brock community has collected substantial donations for the Canadian Red Cross for victims of the South Asian tsunami, the Pakistan earthquake and the Haiti earthquake.For more information, contact John Kaethler at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-688-5550 x3732.Related links:• Japan search teams dig for survivors — CBC News• Victims of Haiti tragedy remembered | The Brock News• Earthquake in Haiti prompts fundraising effort | The Brock News

Police blocked the migrants from walking toward the border in the morning, though later on they allowed them to move about freely.Isauro Mejia, 46, from Cortes, Honduras, went looking for a cup of coffee to shake the morning chill following another night sleeping outside after being caught up in the clashes. Before, he had hoped to be able to press an asylum claim, but now he wasn’t so sure.“The way things went yesterday … I think there is no chance,” Mejia said. “With the difficulty that has presented itself because of yesterday’s incidents … that’s further away.” AP, Dan Plante Migrants hoping to apply for asylum in the United States must put their names on a waiting list that already had some 3,000 people on it before the caravan arrived in Tijuana. With U.S. officials processing fewer than 100 claims a day, the wait time for the recent arrivals stands to take months.That has instilled a sense of desperation among many after their grueling trek from Central America. Sunday’s incident began after hundreds marched to the border to try to call attention to their plight. Some attempted to get through fencing and wire separating the countries, prompting volleys of stinging gas.Cindy Martinez of San Vicente, El Salvador, said she had been about to cross the concertina wire to the U.S. side when the tear gas was launched. She estimated about 20 people had already passed in front of her, and parents begged agents not to unleash the gas because there were young children present.“I see it as impossible for them to want to give us asylum,” she said. “Because of the words that President Donald Trump has said, I think this is impossible.”Martinez, 28, said she was now considering getting work in Tijuana.Mexico’s National Migration Institute reported that 98 migrants were being deported after trying to breach the U.S. border. The country’s Interior Department said about 500 people attempted to rush the border, while U.S. authorities put the number at 1,000.U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said 69 migrants who tried to cross illegally were arrested on the California side. He said the Border Patrol’s use-of-force policy allows agents to use tear gas and other non-lethal methods, but the incident would be reviewed.“As the events unfolded, quick, decisive and effective action prevented an extremely dangerous situation,” McAleenan said.Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department said it had presented a diplomatic note to the U.S. Embassy asking for an “exhaustive investigation” of the use of nonlethal force.Migrant Yanira Elizabeth Rodriguez Martinez said she, her daughter and her sister had stayed away from Sunday’s demonstration because they feared it could turn dangerous. Sitting in their makeshift camp at a sports complex Monday, the 38-year-old asked what the process would be if she decided to return to El Salvador.“Because of (the actions of a few), we all pay,” said Romario Aldair Veron Arevalo, a 20-year-old friend sitting with her. He said he still hoped to cross to the United States and work, but conceded it could be more difficult now.In a rare criticism, Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission admonished migrants that they “should respect Mexican laws and not engage in actions that affect the communities they pass through.”“It is important to note that the fact the Mexican government protects their rights does not imply a free pass to break the law,” it said.Commission official Edgar Corzo Sosa said after visiting the shelter Monday that the space intended for 3,500 is now crowded with more than 5,000 people.He said officials were receiving more requests from migrants wanting to return to their countries, but did not have a number. He said a beefed-up police presence was for the migrants’ safety.“There is nothing to prevent them from leaving” the shelter Corzo said. “They are free to come and go.”The clash also led U.S. authorities to shut down the nation’s busiest border crossing at San Ysidro, California, for several hours Sunday.“Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries,” Trump tweeted Monday. “Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!”Trump has repeatedly suggested without evidence that the migrant caravans are full of hardened criminals, but they appear to be mostly poor people with few belongings fleeing poverty and gang violence.U.S. and Mexican officials have been wrangling over migration and how to deal with asylum-seekers at the border as Tijuana, a border city of 1.6 million residents, struggles to accommodate the crush of migrants.Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who takes office Saturday, declined Monday to comment on the border incident.Asked about Trump’s warning that the U.S. could close the border “permanently” — which would disrupt billions of dollars in trade — Marcelo Ebrard, who is to be Lopez Obrador’s foreign relations secretary, said, “Let’s hope we can keep that from happening.”Tijuana public safety secretary Marco Antonio Sotomayor Amezcua said in a news conference that Mexican police would be prudent in their use of force, but “we have to guard at all cost that the border posts are not closed again.”Sotomayor said he hopes migrants who had thought of entering the U.S. illegally learned from Sunday’s events that that won’t be possible. He added that the mayor is working to secure another space for the migrants with the sports complex overflowing.Baja California state Gov. Francisco Vega said almost 9,000 migrants were in his state — mostly in Tijuana, with a smaller number in Mexicali — and called it “an issue of national security.” Vega issued a public appeal to Mexico’s federal government to take over responsibility for sheltering the migrants and deport any who break the law.Alex Castillo carried a red bedroll slung over his shoulder as he walked away from the Tijuana shelter Monday, saying he would head to the industrial city of Monterrey to look for work and try to cross into the United States next year.The 35-year-old electrician from Tegucigalpa, Honduras, said he wasn’t at the border clash. He heard about it from others and decided to leave “to avoiding getting beaten.”“If they’re launching tear gas,” Castillo said, “it’s better to head somewhere else.”___Associated Press writers Mark Stevenson in Mexico City and Colleen Long in Washington contributed to this report.

The conference commenced with a keynote, in which Google CEO, Sundar Pichai and other executives took the stage to unveil some of its latest hardware and software advancements. This time, Google has announced more hardware as compared to last year.The search giant has also made a slew of software announcements. During the keynote, Sundar Pichai said, “We are moving from a company that helps you find answers to a company that helps you get things done. This morning, we’ll introduce you to many products built on a foundation of user trust and privacy.”This year, Google explained how much they are concern about user privacy and made announcements of several privacy features. At the middle of the keynote, a plane started circling the amphitheatre where Google holds its annual conference, towing a protest banner. “Google control is not privacy #savelocalnews,” the banner read. It is very odd to see that protester use something very expensive. It is still unclear who paid for this.Here are some highlights of Google I/O keynote 2019.The arrival of Pixel 3aGoogle on Tuesday unveiled the latest generation of its smartphones – Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL – that will make a debut on the same day in India. The devices get a price tag of ₹39,999 onwards. Both the phones will be available from May 15. The new pixel series appeal to customers who want a cutting-edge smartphone at a more affordable price. cutting-edge smartphone at a more affordable price. Pixel 3aGoogleThe Pixel 3a and 3a XL come with Night Sight, Super Res Zoom, and portrait mode on both the rear- and front-facing shooters.Google smartphone display with a cameraAnother hardware that has been announced at the keynote is the Nest Hub Max, which is the company’s larger version of its smart-screen home device. It now has a camera that can double as a Nest security system.Thanks to camera addition, the Nest Hub Max can do some interesting new tricks now like face detection of a walking person and it can be turned into video chatting device using Google’s Duo app. It zooms in and pans to follow the person who’s talking. Google I/O 2019GoogleAndroid Q gets a Dark ModeThe search titan also shared an update to its upcoming OS – Android Q. The company released the third beta version of the Android Q. Now, it gets a new dark mode, which makes backgrounds black and text white to be easier on the eyes and battery life.Android Q also features “Digital Wellbeing” and “Focus Mode”. Digital Wellbeing was announced by the company last year to help users to use apps less. This year, Focus Mode is new to Android, which disables “distracting” apps such as YouTube. This android version is more compatible with the foldable device. It is a bit awkward for Samsung as their Galaxy Fold failed in April.Google’s Assistant UpgradedNow, Google Assistant can get information from your contacts, calendar, or places you often visit online, and it now works faster on Pixel devices. Assistant is also bringing Live Caption to all videos. When you watch a video, whether it’s on your camera roll, on an app / the web, or even video chats, Google can soon begin adding subtitles.Google Maps gets Incognito ModeAs I/O 2019 is more focused on privacy, Google Maps will soon get an Incognito mode for more private searches and it will be available for both the web and on the app. Last week, the company made an announcement of auto-deleting location and web activity between periods of every three to 18 months.

The new vignette is called “Professionalism in Radiology Research: Authorship.”Authorship confers credit for work and is an increasingly important issue, given the pressure for academic productivity and the significance ascribed to the number and quality of citations in the consideration for promotion and grants. The issue of authorship is fraught with professional and ethical implications, given that authorship also implies responsibility and accountability for the published work. Professionalism is the basis of medicine’s contract with society. Core principles of professionalism involve placing the interests of patients above those of the physician, setting and maintaining standards of competency and integrity, and providing expert advice to society on matters of health.RSNA’s professionalism vignettes are descriptive narrative scenarios that emphasize the importance of incorporating professionalism into routine practice and aim to facilitate discussion of this core competency. The series outlines specific ethical dilemmas that may be encountered in practice from disclosure of radiological errors to sexual harassment. New topics are in development.Each vignette includes several scenarios with embedded questions and potential responses. Explanations comprising the relevant principles of professionalism help users to assess the appropriateness of their choices. References are provided for further study. “These vignettes provide radiologists with an opportunity to gauge how they would navigate challenging situations and to consider the potential impact of their decisions,” said Stephen D. Brown, M.D., chair of the RSNA Professionalism Committee. “The committee will continue to expand these educational offerings as we identify situations in need of best-practice clarifications.”For more information: www.rsna.org/professionalism FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
