By the time the online comment submission period ended last Wednesday, the agency had collected 21.9 million comments, an astounding level of participation on what at first glance appears to be a rather esoteric telecommunications policy issue.The only hitch: the commenting process was such a debacle that the legitimacy of the entire body of comments is now in question.FCC chair Ajit Pai's name was used on hundreds of comments opposing his proposal, some threatening him with death or using racial slurs.Starting in May, the FCC's site was also hit with what appeared to be a spambot submitting hundreds of thousands of anti-Title II comments with the exact same boilerplate language.ZDNet reported at the time that many of the people whose personal information was found in the spambot comments claimed that their identities were used without their permission."There are limits on the agency's ability to delete, change, or remove comments from the record," G. Patrick Webre, acting chief of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau at the FCC, wrote in a letter responding to Bode's request to have the comment that appropriated his identity removed from the FCC site.

Once people move past the photos of politicians looking compassionate or insensitive in the aftermath of a natural disaster, how do voters assess, blame or reward government leaders for their response?The easy answer is that both local and national leaders are rewarded at the polls when the public thinks they did a good job of handling natural disasters and punished when people think they did a bad job.Third, they need to make an assessment that the leader handled the situation either well or poorly.In 2009, social scientists Andrew Healy and Neil Malhotra pointed out that the federal government can invest disaster money either before a crisis — in disaster preparedness such as equipment to protect against flooding — or afterward — in disaster relief such as direct payments to victims.The results, based on data from from 1988 to 2004, are dramatic: The researchers found that within one presidential election cycle, voters reward presidents for spending on relief, but not for spending on preparedness.1Researchers compared county-level electoral support for incumbent presidents against how much damage that county suffered and how much the federal government allocated to that county for preparedness and relief.

Caterpillar's new Cat S31 and Cat S41 are built to survive the harshest of construction sites -- and tiled floors.Rugged smartphones aren’t just a niche anymore and there is a good reason for that: They provide peace of mind that your phone won’t shatter when it hits concrete, or corrode after you’ve fished it from the bottom of a pool.So it seems almost fitting that Caterpillar Industrial, the company behind tractors, forklifts, and other heavy-duty construction equipment, is putting its spin on the trend with two new Android devices, the Cat S41 and Cat S31.The Cat S41, the high-end model, has a Gorilla Glass 5-shielded screen that is scratch resistant, readable in direct sunlight, and responsive to wet and gloved fingers.Its textured soft-touch body, which has been MIL SPEC 810G drop-tested onto concrete from a height of six feet, is IP68 rated to withstand 6.5 feet of water for up to an hour.A programmable shortcut key lets you launch utilities like the camera and flashlight with a single tap, and an included Battery Share connector turns the Cat S41’s 5,000mAh battery into a portable power bank.

Mapping the cosmos as we see it from Earth is a never-ending job, but one of the nice things about stars is that they tend to hang around for quite a while.That’s why when, in 1437, Korean astronomers first spotted a new star in a familiar constellation they were puzzled, but prepared to accept it as yet another feature of the night sky.Then, two weeks later, it was gone.A newly discovered star completely disappearing into the blackness of space isn’t something happens every day — or hardly ever, really.Stars don’t just appear and then vanish in the span of 14 days, but that’s exactly what seemed to happen, and it’s taken centuries to figure out why.As it turns out, the star didn’t appear and vanish at all, it was simply blowing off some steam.

Rohkeuden puute ja pitäytyminen perinteiseeen työehtosopimuksiin perustuvaan edunvalvontaan uhkaavat ammattiyhdistysliikkeen elinvoimaa tulevaisuudessa, sanoo Tradenomiliiton yksikönjohtaja Ville-Veikko Rantamaula.”Ammattiyhdistyliike on nyt kuilun partaalla siinä, mihin suuntaan pitäisi lähteä”, sanoo yli 30 000 tradenomin puolesta edunvalvontatyötä tekevä Rantamaula.Tiukan menneisyyteen katsovan edunvalvonnan sijaan ay-liikkeen pitäisi Rantamaulan mielestä katsoa tulevaisuuteen ja pyrkiä tulevaisuuden etujen ajajaksi eli muuttua valvojasta kehittäjäksi.Käytännössä se tarkoittaisi sitä, että palkansaajapuolen liittojen pitäisi alkaa nykyisestä enemmän valmistella konkreettisia ehdotuksia siitä, miten työelämän käytänteitä pitää muuttaa, jotta ne elävät ajassa ja sopeutuvat työelämän muutoksiin.Me tarvitsemme enemmän uusia rohkeampia malleja”, Rantamaula sanoo.Rantamaula mainitsee työaikalain uudistamisen esimerkkinä nykyisestä työmarkkinajärjestöjen pysähtyneisyydestä.

Saksan liittokansleri Angela Merkel on edelleen vankasti sitä mieltä, että Saksan rajojen avaaminen pakolaisille vuoden 2015 kriisin yhteydessä oli oikea päätös sekä poliittisesti että humanitaarisesti."Tilanne oli poikkeuksellinen, ja tein päätökseni sen perusteella, minkä ajattelin olevan oikein poliittisesta ja humanitaarisesta näkökulmasta", sanoo Saksan liittokansleri Angela Merkel Welt am Sonntag -lehden haastattelussa."Tekisin kaikki vuoden 2015 tärkeimmät päätökset uudestaan samalla tavalla.Tällaisia poikkeuksellisia tilanteita tapahtuu aina silloin tällöin maan historiassa.Hallituksen johtajan on toimittava, ja minä toimin."Saksaan saapui toissa vuonna Bloombergin mukaan 980 000 pakolaista, pääosin Syyriasta ja Irakista.

A few months ago, a Google engineer named James Damore wrote an incendiary internal memo on a 12-hour flight to China.He had just attended a “diversity programme” run by his employer, which had clearly annoyed or disturbed him.“They said ‘No you can’t say that, that’s sexist… You can’t do this…’ There’s just so much hypocrisy in a lot of the things that they’re saying.”Damore’s 10-page memo – entitled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber: how bias clouds our thinking about diversity and inclusion” – went viral within Google, and eventually news of it reached the outside world.He also argued that biological differences play a role in the shortage of women in tech and that the focus on race and gender bias within Google has led to the company ignoring a diversity of ideas, particularly moral ones.“At Google,” he wrote, “we talk so much about unconscious bias as it applies to race and gender, but we rarely discuss our moral biases.” The leftwing bias of Google, he claimed, leads it to miss what he believes are “personality differences between men and women that cause the gender gap in tech companies”.

The world’s largest video sharing platform has started rolling out measures to restrict the reach, visibility, and profitability of “controversial religious or supremacist content.” Is it working?As we learned earlier this month, YouTube’s plan for videos that don’t necessarily break the rules, but nevertheless fall into this liminal category of hateful or extremist content, was to severely kneecap their reach and visibility.Such videos “won’t be recommended, won’t be monetised, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes,” according to a blog post published by YouTube on August 1.Following an interstitial which informs viewers that the content “has been deemed by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences,” these quarantined videos play, but with almost none of the features expected of the platform.Searching the title of this exact video (in quotes!)Effectively, the chances of anyone viewing this video accidentally are zero.

Gameheads is going back to school to solve the game industry’s diversity problem.It’s a year-round program based in Oakland, California, that teaches development to students in underserved communities.He also drew connections between the DIY culture in low-income neighborhoods and the skills needed to succeed in the games industry.“If you think about that in terms of the game industry, those are artists, level designers, game designers, IT folks, project managers, sound designers, even motion capture and voice actors.”Packwood says that the goal of the program isn’t just to teach students the hard skills needed to make a game but to provide a pipeline into the games industry.“And so we continue to work with them over time, and then the thing we’ve been doing lately is the college level students come back and work with the high school students.
