Newfoundland and Labrador will target revenge porn with new law

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Newfoundland and Labrador is joining a growing list of provinces targeting so-called revenge porn with new legislation aimed at those who threaten or actually share intimate images without consent.Justice Minister Andrew Parsons said Monday the goal is to deter harassment that can be devastating.“We’re not talking about something that’s just humiliating or embarrassing,” he said in an interview. “This can alter a person’s life.“We’ve seen people take their lives from this.”Parsons said the legislation, to be introduced by this fall, will allow victims to sue in civil court and give judges leeway to order the removal of internet images.“It’s going on so often now, across multiple age brackets, but obviously I have a big concern when it comes to youth.”Parsons said the Criminal Code was updated in 2015 to outlaw distribution of intimate images without consent, but civil law has lagged.The new legislation would also allow judges to award damages so that offenders would literally pay for their actions.“The threat of doing this, even the threat, is enough that it can ruin a person’s life,” Parsons said. “It’s not something I dealt with 10 years ago but seeing it now, it’s something new and it’s something we have to combat.”Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta and Nova Scotia have so far taken similar action, he added.Bridget Clarke, who works with the Safe Harbour Outreach Project in St. John’s, said the impacts of unwanted image sharing are vast.“They range from emotional, social, financial, psychological — and all these damages in many ways are immeasurable … In some people, we have seen that they’ve died by suicide because of how all this unfolded.”Clarke stressed that consenting adults have the right to do as they want with their own bodies, including taking pictures.“But with everything, consent is mandatory,” she said. “The threat or the action to share intimate or nude photos of someone without their consent is ultimately about power and it’s about control.“Women feel they aren’t able to leave relationships because they have the threat of this looming.”Whether it’s called revenge porn, cyberbullying or something else, Clarke said it’s a form of sexual violence.“And we know sexual violence is prevalent in all of our communities.”Jane Bailey, a law professor at the University of Ottawa specializing in technology-assisted violence against women and girls, said the legislation is a good step — especially if it infers harm done by revenge porn and eases the burden of proof on complainants. Still, lawsuits are expensive and slow when time is of the essence, she said in an interview.“For a lot of people who are victimized by this behaviour, one of their major priorities is a quick remedy — which civil litigation doesn’t necessarily give you.”Bailey would like to see more support offered through administrative bodies that can swiftly connect victims with internet providers to remove non-consensual images.In Manitoba, for example, residents can file a report with Cybertip.ca.Australia has an eSafety Commissioner’s office that handles reports of image-based abuse.“It’s real, tangible, technical support,” Bailey said. “The sooner the content is removed from the place it’s originally posted, the better the chance you have that it’s not going to get replicated on numerous sites. Once that happens, it becomes very difficult to remove.”Follow @suebailey on Twitter.last_img read more

Morocco at Risk of Day Zero Water Crisis

Rabat- A new early warning satellite system reveals dangerous reservoir shrinkages in India, Iraq, Spain, and Morocco, where water in one of its most important dams reached alarming levels.Despite the recent rainfalls, which increased the storage dam capacity up to 58.8 percent, the World Resources Institute (WRI) declared that Morocco might still face a water shortage in the coming summer months and beyond.The alarming report is mostly based on the water shrinkage at Al Massira Reservoir, on the Oum Er-rbia River in Settat Province, which has shrunk by 63 percent between 2015-2017, thus reaching its lowest level since the drought of 2005-2008, which affected more than 700,000 people and decreased grain production by 50 percent. Al Massira, second largest dam in Morocco after Al Wahda, supplies water to the agricultural sector, which absorbs 33 percent of the labor force, in the Doukkala area, Casablanca-Settat region, and other cities. “While the reservoir’s levels keep decreasing, demand for its water keeps increasing,” stated the report.The report predicts that water levels at Al Massira would further deteriorate by the large water transfer project to Marrakech, which is expected to be fully operational in 2018. Climate change is also expected to further diminish water supply, resulting in water stress and competition over scarce resources. According to the World Bank, urban water demand is expected to increase by 60 to 100 percent in most of Morocco’s large cities b 2050. Earlier last month, Morocco’s Head of Government, Saad Eddine El Othmani, declared that the government is in the process of crafting a national water plan through 2050, in order to solve water shortage problems in several regions. read more

Rare moment of diplomatic opportunity to end conflict in Syria says Ban

“In follow-up to the last meeting, the Secretary-General has instructed the United Nations Secretariat to accelerate planning on modalities for supporting the implementation of a political process and of a nationwide ceasefire for further exploration with the relevant parties,” indicated a statement issued by his spokesperson. Meanwhile, the UN spokesperson issued a separate statement by the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) noting that members welcomed Mr. Ban’s instructions on the ceasefire, and expressed a unanimous sense of urgency to end the suffering of the Syrian people, the physical destruction of Syria, the destabilization of the region, and the resulting increase in terrorists drawn to the fighting in Syria. The group includes the Arab League, the European Union, the United Nations, and 17 countries. “The ISSG acknowledged the close linkage between a ceasefire and a parallel political process pursuant to the 2012 Geneva Communiqué , and that both initiatives should move ahead expeditiously,” the statement noted, highlighting that the members also stated their commitment to ensure a Syrian-led and Syrian-owned political transition. The group agreed to support and work to implement a nationwide ceasefire in Syria to come into effect as soon as the representatives of the Syrian government and the opposition have begun initial steps towards the transition under UN auspices on the basis of the Geneva Communiqué. Meanwhile, the five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council pledged to support a resolution to empower a UN-endorsed ceasefire monitoring mission in those parts of the country where monitors would not come under threat of attacks from terrorists. “All members of the ISSG also pledged as individual countries and supporters of various belligerents to take all possible steps to require adherence to the ceasefire by these groups or individuals they support, supply or influence,” the statement underlined, adding that the ceasefire would not apply to offensive or defensive actions against Da’esh or Nusra or any other group the ISSG agrees to deem terrorist. In addition, the ISSG expressed concern for the plight of refugees and internally displaced persons and the imperative of building conditions for their safe return in accordance with the norms of international humanitarian law and taking into account the interests of host countries. They also reiterated their agreement on the need to convene Syrian government and opposition representatives in formal negotiations under UN auspices, as soon as possible, with a target date of 1 January. “The group welcomed efforts, working with United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and others, to bring together the broadest possible spectrum of the opposition, chosen by Syrians, who will decide their negotiating representatives and define their negotiating positions, so as to enable the political process to begin,” the statement explained. Furthermore, ISSG members affirmed their support for a Syrian-led process that will, within a target of six months, establish “credible, inclusive and non-sectarian governance,” and set a schedule and process for drafting a new constitution. “Free and fair elections would be held pursuant to the new constitution within 18 months,” the statement noted. “These elections must be administered under UN supervision to the satisfaction of the governance and to the highest international standards of transparency and accountability, with all Syrians, including the diaspora, eligible to participate.” Regarding the fight against terrorism, the ISSG reiterated that Da’esh, Nusra, and other terrorist groups, as designated by the UN Security Council, must be defeated. The participants expect to meet in approximately one month in order to review progress towards implementation of a ceasefire and the beginning of the political process. read more

LulzSec offers revenge against Sega Pass hackers

first_imgDetails on last week’s hack of Sega Pass have been scarce, and while Sega does say that no sensitive personal information was stolen during the attack, we do know now that over 1.29 million usernames, passwords, e-mail addresses, and birth dates were stolen. Now, an unexpected organization has stepped forward to offer Sega their help in identifying and taking revenge against the hackers: LulzSec.The recent series of attacks targeting gaming companies have largely been blamed on LulzSec, even though the group hasn’t taken credit for a number of them. The BioWare forum hack last week and the Sega Pass hack late last week were both largely assumed to be LulzSec at work, but they say that’s not the case. Now the group is stepping up to offer Sega their help in tracking down the people responsible.LulzSec tweeted their outrage over the hack, telling Sega to contact them and that they want to “help you destroy the hackers that attacked you.” They expressed their love for the Dreamcast, and said those responsible for the breach are “going down.”The real question is whether or not LulzSec is being sincere in their desire to bring the Sega Pass hackers to justice, or if they’re simply using their podium to throw others off their trail. It’s very possible – even likely – that someone else is responsible for the Sega Pass hack, as well as some of the other hacks that have been pinned on LulzSec.Regardless, Sega is likely already working with law enforcement agencies to determine the real culprits behind the hack. They, like other gaming companies, are also likely working to plug the holes in their network security. Still, the fact that LulzSec has stepped up as an avenging enforcer on Sega’s behalf certainly adds to the drama around this month’s hacking spree.Read more at Yahoo! Newslast_img read more

Disney wastes no time welcoming Avatar The Simpsons and Deadpool

first_imgIt features clips from The Simpsons, Family Guy and Empire. In one Empire clip, character Lucious Lyon says, “The company we knew and loved is changing.” Read into that what you will.The Mouse House is a crowded one indeed. Disney is welcoming its new Fox franchises under its banner — quite literally.Following the closing of Disney’s $71.3 billion Fox takeover late Tuesday, Disney made an immediate update to its website.The site shows off a new banner featuring Disney stalwarts Star Wars, Toy Story, Captain Marvel and Frozen, alongside Fox properties The Shape of Water, Avatar, The Simpsons, Deadpool and more.While Deadpool is happy to jump on board the Disney school bus, some aren’t quite as chipper. The transition could see potential X-Men films developed by Fox lost by the wayside, including an X-23 spinoff of the successful Hugh Jackman-starring Logan, according to The Hollywood Reporter. On top of that, Variety is reporting an expected loss of 4,000 jobs to result from the merger.Yet things aren’t so blue for James Cameron’s Avatar, which has four sequels in the works, to be shot back-to-back, with Avatar 2 set to arrive Dec. 18, 2020. Meanwhile, Fox renewed The Simpsons for two more seasons, bringing its impressive run up to seasons 31 and 32.Deadpool, which saw two R-rated films and a PG-rated version of Deadpool 2 under Fox, could see its adult brand continue for a Deadpool 3. Disney CEO Bob Iger is open to the possibility, saying there would be an “opportunity for an R-rated Marvel brand as long as we let audiences know what’s coming.”As for Fox’s feelings about the merger, see the company’s new sizzle reel posted to YouTube Wednesday night.

Kitty Hawk and Boeing are teaming up on flying cars

Kitty Hawk Boeing is just about the biggest name in aerospace, despite some recent troubles, but if it’s going to survive against the likes of Airbus, it’s going to need to find some new ventures to invest in. That’s where Kitty Hawk comes in.Kitty Hawk is — as sharp-eyed readers of Roadshow will note — a flying car company founded by Google co-founder Larry Page, and it needs a partner with the expertise and resources to help get its urban flying vehicle dreams off the ground.That’s why the two companies are forming a strategic partnership that may give both companies a considerable head start over other flying car/air taxi projects, such as UberAir and Bell Nexus. “Kitty Hawk was started to advance technology in flight and bring new innovations to life,” said Sebastian Thrun, co-founder and CEO of Kitty Hawk. “I am excited about our companies working together to accelerate making safe electric flight a reality.”Right now, Kitty Hawk has two vehicles in its lineup — the Kitty Hawk Flyer, which hovers 10 feet above the ground and goes about 20 miles per hour, and the Cora, an electric two-person air taxi that’s destined to get its inaugural test in New Zealand.Boeing is, well, Boeing. If you’ve been on an airplane in the US, you’ve probably been on one of its planes.

New equipment helps scientists keep tabs on Bogoslof now and study it

first_imgBogoslof island has changed dramatically since the volcano started erupting in late 2016. (Max Kaufman/Alaska Volcano Observatory/University of Alaska Fairbanks, Geophysical Institute)Scientists have had a hard time monitoring Bogoslof volcano since it started erupting in December. The island is so small, there is no equipment on the volcano, making it difficult to predict eruptions.Listen nowNo one lives on Bogoslof – the closest human neighbors are 60 miles away in Unalaska. Scientists monitor from afar and they’ve had a lot to monitor lately. The volcano has erupted more than 40 times since December.Geophysicist John Lyons said there aren’t many volcanoes like Bogoslof in the world so he doesn’t want to miss anything.“The interesting thing about the eruption at Bogoslof is that it’s happening underwater and then the eruption breaks the surface and goes into the atmosphere,” Lyons said.Lyons installed two hydrophones underwater near the island — they’re essentially microphones that listen and record seismic waves during an eruption.“Right now, we can only detect the most energetic activity from the volcano,” Lyons said. “So hopefully with these two instruments that are much closer we’ll be able to detect, understand, and study the eruption in much more detail.”Lyons said these recordings are unprecedented. Because the hydrophones are so close to the island and in the water column, they’re especially good at registering the low level activity at Bogoslof that the faraway monitoring network has missed. He’ll have to wait a while to study them, since the hydrophones don’t transmit their data.But there’s another piece of equipment volcanologist Alexa Van Eaton installed that will help right away – they track lightning, including volcanic lightning, which happens when static electricity builds up in ash clouds.“Unlike ground shaking and unlike acoustic energy that can happen when there’s not a lot of ash getting into the atmosphere, lightning is unique to ash,” Van Eaton said. “That’s relevant because it’s important to aviation hazards and communities like Dutch Harbor which could be downwind.”The new sensors are part of a global lightning system called the World Wide Lightning Location Network. The stronger network makes it easier to warn pilots that eruptions are underway. And it could help scientists understand if lightning at Bogoslof means there’s a lot of ash in the atmosphere and planes should avoid the area.For now, the scientists are relishing every bit of eruptive activity at Bogoslof. The more it erupts, the more they can learn.last_img read more

Can smartphone apps diagnose illnesses No say experts

first_imgWith a barrage of smartphone health apps being launched globally — claiming to go beyond fitness or calorie checkers and spot mental illnesses or respiratory diseases — health experts stress that such digital applications can never be a replacement for a qualified, well-trained health service provider.An Australia-based digital health solution provider recently launched an app called ResApp that claims to diagnose respiratory diseases like pneumonia, croup and asthma with high accuracy through a cough into a smartphone. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Go to Apple App Store and you will find a plethora of apps claiming to diagnose depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There are nearly 1,500 depression-checking apps out there but according to experts, apps can at best give information or help monitor diet and health parameters but if these claim to diagnose an illness, there are serious medico-legal issues in making such a claim.“Apps may guide a patient to consult an appropriate doctor. However, an app by itself is not adequate to make a diagnosis. Diagnosis of a medical condition is made by detailed history and examination followed by investigations. This expertise is gained after several years of training and a digital app is not a replacement at all,” emphasised Dr Vipul Gupta, head, (neurovascular intervention centre) at Medanta-The Medicity. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixGupta is soon going to launch an app called “Stroke and Neurointervention” — being developed with the non-profit Stroke and Neurovascular Intervention Foundation, where he is one of the founder members.The app will provide information to people about stroke awareness, prevention and treatment options. “The app will also have an emergency number to call. It will regularly update doctors about current treatments, latest advances and protocols and provide expert opinion on medical cases,” said Dr Gupta. When it comes to health apps, experts say that trust in health care cannot be created by answering merely a set of questions and getting an instant diagnosis as the variables are too high to be included in a single app.The key questions are: Is the app accredited by an agency or has the process been standardised by any council? Have double-blind clinical trials been performed on these apps for approval and do these prepare users for emergency situations? Are the people behind the apps health care providers or mere IT geeks who wish to monetise their efforts?“There is not enough evidence that such queries have been addressed when it comes to health apps. On the contrary, there is always an agreement clause which the user is made to click prior to use, absolving the app creator of any medical mishaps,” said Dr Amitabh Parti, unit head (internal medicine) at Fortis Medical Research Institute in Gurgaon.Dr Parti has come across many such tall claiming apps and found those misleading. “The efficacy of an app need to be subjected to multi-centric clinical trials and need to be assessed in varying clinical settings including individuals with many co-morbidities (more than one disease). We must realise there is no room for a redo in healthcare when it is a human life we are interfering with,” emphasises Dr Parti.Dr Rajeev Rathi, cardiologist at Max Super Specialty Hospital in the Capital, recently devised and launched an app to help a person find if he or she is suffering from a heart disease or not.Diagnosis in the field of mental health is largely clinical and questionnaires and apps at best can help with screening to help provide suggestions but not diagnosis.“It is important that applications are used for education and screening purpose and not for more and should aid in reaching experts to a larger population and make accessibility easier,” elaborates Dr Samir Parikh, director, department of mental health and behavioural sciences, at Fortis Healthcare.In a recent report in the scientific journal Nature, psychiatrist John Torous who chairs the American Psychiatric Association’s Smartphone App Evaluation Task Force, said: “Right now, it [apps] almost feels like the Wild West of health care.”last_img read more

A look at Ubuntu 1710 Artful Aardvark

first_imgA look at Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on October 22, 2017 in Linux – Last Update: October 23, 2017 – 28 commentsI’m going to preface this review, and say that I liked Ubuntu 17.10 after using it for a few days. However, there were multiple issues with it, that ultimately ruined my experience; however, your mileage my vary.Ubuntu 17.10, code-named Artful Aardvark, is the latest Ubuntu Linux release from Canonical, and was released Oct. 19.It’s the first desktop release of the pure Ubuntu flavor, to not feature the Unity desktop, since Ubuntu 11.04. Now, Ubuntu uses the GNOME desktop environment now.My setupIntel(R) Core (TM) i5-4430 @ 3Ghz16GB DDR3 @ 1600MhzNvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB7200RPM HDDThree monitors, DVI and HDMI connected to GPU, VGA connected to motherboardInstallation So, installation of Ubuntu 17.10 did not go as smooth as I had hoped, considering its extremely recent release date, but alas, we don’t always win when playing with recent hardware.Immediately upon booting, I was brought to the “Try or Install” type screen, where I selected install. I got a couple of screens in, where you are asked if you wish to install updates during installation, and whether you want plugins and codecs installed and then suddenly; it hangs. Entire system lockup when I tried to proceed to the next screen.So I hard rebooted via button hold. Upon booting up again, I was faced with an error I photographed with my phone, because I couldn’t even boot into the system.The solution: edit the boot parameters and add ‘nomodeset’ to the kernel line, which tells the kernel to wait to load video drivers and use BIOS modes until X is loaded first. It’s a popular fix when having video card issues at first boot.So I got back into the installer, and installed the system this time, no problems, went smooth and quick. The Live USB was smooth and fast too on this machine, even while installing.I rebooted into my new system…Or no, wait, I didn’t. I got stonewalled with another error.This one would happen the moment I tried to boot into Ubuntu…Until I went into ‘Advanced’ options in my GRUB screen. The confusing part, is that I had to manually select which kernel version I wanted to use, but the only one available, is the one that is used by default…so, I selected it, and voila; I booted. Likely there is something messed up with GRUB that I will need to fix. Regardless, after jumping through these little hoops, I was into my installed Ubuntu system.The new Ubuntu 17.10As previously stated, Ubuntu now uses GNOME for its desktop environment, although to be honest, it still feels like Unity. The main reason for this I feel, is because the dock on the left hand of the screen that normally is hidden, is always visible in the new styling, and just the way the interface feels, almost makes this feel more like a different version of Unity, albeit, a better one.My graphics card does not work with the default Nouveau open source Nvidia driver, I need to install the proprietary driver if I want to use my video card for anything, thankfully Ubuntu has a driver tool to make that process easier than doing it by hand.I did notice however that even with my decently powered system, animations lagged or were choppy, when I did things like open the applications menu. It wasn’t horrendous, but still easily noticeable.ApplicationsUbuntu comes with the pretty standard package of applications, such as:FirefoxLibreOfficeCheeseRythmboxShotwellThunderbirdTransmission-gtkNothing really innovative or exciting to me, about the current application selection, but all-around good choices for appealing to the masses needs.So, how do I upgrade?Keep in mind, that Ubuntu 17.10 is not a LTS release (long term support), and is more of a stable testing ground for Ubuntu 18.04. That said, if you are running 17.04, upgrading is simple:sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgradeand thensudo do-release-upgradeTa-Da!However, if you are running an older version, you will first need to update to 17.04, and then 17.10 after.Final thoughtsI ran into issues right off the hop with this Ubuntu release, which makes me a little wary, however, I’ve always been known to be able to find bugs where bugs shouldn’t exist, or break things without touching them…So I’m not really surprised, and your mileage may likely vary. Overall, I don’t mind the new Ubuntu, but it’s choppy animations did disappoint me on this machine.Overall, I’d still say if you’re a fan of GNOME, or Ubuntu, it’s at least worth a look, maybe you’ll love it.What are your thoughts on the new system?SummaryArticle NameA look at Ubuntu 17.10 Artful AardvarkDescriptionOur Linux wizard Mike takes a look at the new Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark release of the popular Linux distribution.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
