For Kathryn Jones (and, likely, countless other Americans), the 2016 election of U.S. President Donald Trump came as a wakeup call.Jones, a longtime executive in the digital media space—in 2011, she founded VirtualArtsTV, which produces multi-camera, live-streaming events for performance-arts clients—has officially opened her latest venture: Collective Agency, a grassroots digital, social-first media agency for progressive campaigns, groups, foundations and PACs.Collective’s mission is to “arm the progressive movement with the social content it sorely lacked,” Jones told Adweek, alluding to Russia’s efforts to influence voters in favor of Trump through social media hacks.“We could, maybe arguably, say social media helped steal the 2016 election,” she said.For Jones, Trump’s win catalyzed her on many fronts.“That election changed everything: in how I want to be viewed in this world as a woman, an entrepreneur and creative person,” she said.
Japan’s space agency, JAXA, has announced that the Hayabusa2 spacecraft will soon pull off another critical mission.The new mission will see the spacecraft drop an explosive on Ryugu in an attempt to make its own crater and extract underground samples from the asteroid.JAXA says that the impactor Hayabusa2 will smack the asteroid with an impactor the size of a baseball that weighs 4.4 pounds.The mission will take place on April 5, and the goal is to get a sample from under the asteroid’s surface to sample portions of the asteroid that have never been hit by sunlight or space rays.The trickiest part of the mission is that after hurling the impactor at the asteroid, Hayabusa2 will need to quickly move to the other side of the asteroid to avoid being hit with ejected debris.JAXA project engineer Takanao Saeki has said the mission would be very challenging.
- About 2.5 billion gallons of produced water, a byproduct from the oil refinery and extraction process, is generated each day in the United States.Handling that water is a major challenge in the oil refinery industry, particularly because it is deemed unusable for household and commercial use by the Environmental Protection Agency because of remaining contaminants.Now, Purdue University researchers have developed a process to remove nearly all traces of oil in produced water.The process uses activated charcoal foam and subjects it to solar light to produce heat and purify the water."I have seen in my home country of India how people suffer for the want of pure water, and we as researchers need to do as much as we can to help."The Purdue's team process also meets all EPA standards for clean water from industrial sources and had a total organic carbon of 7.5 milligrams per liter.

The Philippines’ Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has denied Go-Jek’s application for a transport network operator’s license for a second time.The public transport regulator refused the ride-hailing company’s application as it did not meet domestic ownership requirements, Rappler reported – reiterating the reason for its earlier denial.Under local regulations, transportation network vehicle services such as ride-hailing apps are classified as public transport, meaning that they must be at least 60 percent Filipino-owned.Go-Jek had initially applied for a license to operate in the country last year through its local entity Velox Technology Philippines.This was refused by LTFRB in January this year on the basis that the local entity was 99.99 percent owned by Go-Jek’s Singapore-registered subsidiary, Velox South-East Asia Holdings.Go-Jek formally asked the agency to review the refusal, but LTFRB stuck with its earlier decision.

Asteroid Bennu, the space rock currently orbited by NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, has offered up a couple surprise discoveries over past weeks, according to the space agency.OSIRIS-REx arrived at Bennu back in December 2018, kicking off a couple years of observations before the spacecraft’s eventual return to Earth.If everything goes as planned, NASA will receive a physical sample collected from Bennu.Bennu is full of surprises, NASA said in a recent statement.Among the unexpected discoveries were particle plumes, and OSIRIS-REx now has the distinction of having made the first close-up observations of these plumes erupting from the surface of an asteroid.The mission’s principal investigator Dante Lauretta explained:
“You can use sex to sell anything, except if it’s women’s pleasure.”That’s how Stephanie Keating, marketing manager at WOW Tech Group, describes her frustration at the often-unwritten rules of advertising that keep sex toy ads from appearing in public.Given that her company produces high-tech gadgets aimed at helping women enjoy sexual fulfillment, it’s understandable why she feels like she’s been waging an uphill battle in the name of sex positivity.But for the moment, she’s enjoying a rare moment of victory thanks to the company’s newest ad, a Toronto billboard with one of the best pieces of copywriting in recent memory: “Scream your own name.”Designed by Canadian agency The Garden, the billboard has so far survived three weeks alongside one of Toronto’s busiest highways (the QEW at the 427), and the agency says that sets an endurance record for ads of its kind in North America.Such advertisements, centered on women’s pleasure, are often turned down by ad placement companies, despite what Keating sees as a double standard that has made men’s sexual-health ads commonplace.
The Securities and Exchange Commission heaped scorn on Elon Musk and his legal arguments in a Monday legal filing.The agency is asking New York federal Judge Alison Nathan to hold Musk in contempt for tweeting a projection of 2019 vehicle output without first getting the tweet approved by Tesla's lawyers.Musk has been battling the SEC since last August, when he tweeted that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private.That turned out to be untrue, and it's illegal to publish inaccurate information that has the potential to move markets.Under the terms of a September deal, Musk paid a $20 million fine and gave up his role as the chairman of Tesla's board (Tesla paid an additional $20 million).Elon Musk isn’t on his Twitter leash yet, so he’s taunting the SEC
As chairman of President Obama’s Federal Communications Commission, Tom Wheeler did much to dispute late-night host John Oliver’s memorable characterization of his revolving-door appointment as “the equivalent of needing a babysitter and hiring a dingo.”His tenure at the agency saw the passage of strong net neutrality rules, broadband privacy protections and other pro-consumer reforms, most of which were subsequently dismantled by the Trump administration and a Republican-controlled Congress.But Wheeler is optimistic net neutrality rules will eventually be solidified into law as well as privacy-focused regulation of Facebook, Google and other tech giants—an industry over which the FCC doesn’t have much jurisdiction but Wheeler had nonetheless hoped to influence.In his new book, From Gutenberg to Google: The History of Our Future, the former telecom lobbyist compares the process to other big shifts in communication technology throughout history.Wheeler spoke with Adweek about the path forward for net neutrality, how his hopes of spurring tech regulation backfired and why the Pacific Telegraph Act of 1862 is still relevant today.Tom Wheeler: I think probably there were two: One was the thesis I was working on pre-FCC was how the nature of networks had moved from a centralizing force to a distributed force, and economic activity was following that force outward to the edge of the network, which indeed it certainly has.
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Hayabusa2 mission has released its first batch of scientific results on asteroid Ryugu – and it’s revealed a bunch of surprises about the small, spinning rock.Hayabusa2 is one of two missions currently visiting and attempting to collect samples from asteroids near the Earth.Its initial observations have already revealed a Ryugu that differed from expectations: rather than a wet mass of differently-shaped rocks, it’s a spinning pile of uniform rubble with less water than expected.These new insights will help scientists write this object’s history, which now seems to include a period of rapid rotation and a potentially chaotic birth from a parent body.Hayabusa2 launched in December, 2014 and arrived at the 900-meter-wide (2950-foot-wide) asteroid Ryugu last summer.It has since taken incredible images and just last month successfully (but quickly) touched down to collect a sample, firing a tantalum bullet into the asteroid in and scooping up the resulting debris.

After BMF executive vice president and would-be head of sales Ashley Berg sued her employer last month for allegedly demoting her and cutting her salary after learning that she was three-months pregnant, other women have stepped forward to accuse the experiential agency of similar malpractice.An amended complaint, filed in the Berg case in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York this morning and embedded in full at the bottom of this story, alleges that chief operating officer Eric Brunman, one of four agency partners named as defendants, asked one unnamed woman if she planned on having children or becoming “pregnant anytime soon” while interviewing her for the role of senior vice president of creative strategy in 2017.According to the complaint, Brunman then told her that if she were hired, “We would need you to promise that you will wait a year to have a baby because we need someone to give us runway and show that they are fully committed to the job and can give their full attention to the position.”The lawsuit claims that, when the woman allegedly responded by telling him how inappropriate these “statements and warnings” were, he “merely laughed” and responded, “you are probably right.”The suit alleges that this woman was offered the role but that she declined, “in part because of Mr. Brunman’s comments.” The lawsuit adds that the offer letter allegedly made no mention of maternity leave policies.“The amended complaint provides further evidence of systemic pregnancy discrimination,” Douglas Wigdor, founder of Wigdor LLP, the law firm representing Berg, said in an email to Adweek.
Six months after MDC Partners retired the KBS brand and folded it into Forsman & Bodenfors, the global creative agency has appointed a CEO in New York, promoting Mike Densmore from his previous role as president.As CEO, Densmore will be tasked with expanding the agency’s client portfolio and promoting its collaborative approach internally and with clients.He is a strong leader and really nice at the same time, which is why we love him,” Forsman & Bodenfors global executive chairman and copywriter Anna Qvennerstedt said in a statement.“The way he is shaping the New York office’s culture and his exceptional ability to juggle business, crazy ideas and human beings are what make him the perfect fit for leading F into the future.”What was then KBS New York hired Densmore as president September of 2017.That was after Densmore spent nearly four years as BBH’s first global chief growth officer, leading the additions of clients including Netflix, Amazon, Nest and Hello Fresh to the agency’s roster.
Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the IMDEA Networks Institute, in collaboration with the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) at Berkeley (USA) and Stony Brook University of New York (USA), have carried out a study that encompasses 82,000 pre-installed apps in more than 1,700 devices manufactured by 214 brands, revealing the existence of a complex ecosystem of manufacturers, mobile operators, app developers and providers, with a wide network of relationships between them.Many of the pre-installed apps facilitate access to privileged data and resources, without the average user being aware of their presence or being able to uninstall them.The study shows, on the one hand, that the permission model on the Android operating system and its apps allow a large number of actors to track and obtain personal user information.These results are detailed out in an article that will be made public on April 1 and which will be presented at one of the main cybersecurity and privacy conferences worldwide, the 41st IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy, California (USA) under the title An Analysis of Pre-installed Android Software.The Agencia Española de Protección de Datos- AEPD (Spanish Data Protection Agency), which has contributed to the dissemination of this study because of the massive impact of the results on citizen privacy, will present the results before the European Commission for Data Protection.In addition to the standard permissions defined in Android and that can be controlled by the user, the researchers have identified more than 4,845 owner or personalized permissions by different actors in the manufacture and distribution of the terminals.
A cryptocurrency fan has issued a warning: scammers are posing as the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to fool you into giving up $10,000 worth of Bitcoin, BTC so take notice.A Reddit post titled “CIA got me fam” displayed proof of a new bogus email campaign designed to trick potential victims into thinking they are subject of an international criminal investigation.The ruse is their details have been flagged in a database related to a police operation set to arrest more than 2,000 individuals suspected of paedophilia across 27 countries.Legitimacy is supposedly derived from its masked email domain (@esxo.cia-gov.ga), as well as an image of a CIA crest in the emails‘ signature.This potentially very serious legal problem can all go away, though, if you would just transfer $10,000 in Bitcoin to an address (supposedly) controlled Hong Lees, a federal agent working for the CIA‘s Directorate of Science and Technology.The email lists cryptocurrency exchanges Coinbase, Bitstamp, and Coinmama as examples of platforms that support Bitcoin purchase and transferal.
Norsk Hydro, one of the world's largest aluminium producer, is the victim of an extensive attack against the group's IT systems.Those who are behind require money to stop the attack, confirms the company. After the attack, we have been working on to isolate and neutralize the virus.All the installations are isolated and it does not seem to have affected us outside Norway, " says Norsk Hydro's chief financial officer Eivind Kallevik at a press conference.According to the Kallevik has no security issues have arisen as a result of the assault, which, however, turns out the computers and complicates administration and production.According to the Norwegian tv-channel NRK, the Norwegian agency for cybersecurity, Norcert, warned partners to Hydro been subjected to an attack with a virus called ”Lockergoga”, that make all of the content on an infected computer inaccessible.

Amazon Rekognition is the company's effort to create software that can identify anything it's looking at -- most notably faces.That means that you don't need to use Facebook or buy a face-scanning iPhone or a fancy video doorbell from Google-owned Nest or Amazon-owned Ring in order for facial recognition to be a part of your everyday life.Like a lot of what Amazon is up to these days, Rekognition centers around artificial intelligence and machine learning.For a law enforcement agency, the face collection could be an existing database of mugshots."With Amazon Rekognition, you pay for the images and videos you analyze and the face metadata that you store," the company explains, adding that customers can analyze 5,000 images and 1,000 minutes of video per month for free during their first year using the service.That really depends on who's using it (more on that in just a bit), but Amazon lists the following use cases as examples:
Multi-billion-euro auction goes ahead in spite of a legal challenge by operators over service requirements and US pressure to ban Chinese equipment vendors from next-generation networksGermany kicked off its 5G mobile spectrum auction on Tuesday morning, after overcoming last-minute complications including resisting pressure by the US to exclude Huawei from next-generation network plans.Regulators decided against barring telecoms equipment vendors from China, as Australia and New Zealand have done, instead saying they would tighten security rules for all vendors.“The same rules apply, whether you are from Sweden or China,” said Jochen Homann, chairman of the German Federal Network Agency (BNA), at a press event held to mark the launch of the auction, which is expected to last several weeks.Operators had also mounted a lawsuit in an effort to force a delay to the auction, challenging requirements that they fear might force them to open their networks to rivals, and which oblige them to provide fast internet to at least 98 percent of households in every German state by the end of 2022.After months of uncertainty, a court threw out that challenge last week, allowing the auction to go ahead.
