Visitors play Hearthstone at the World of Warcraft exhibition stand during the Gamescom 2013 fair in CologneBlizzard Entertainment has revealed plans to combat harassment and abuse on Twitch, following an incident involving Hearthstone pro Terrence 'TerrenceM' Miller.In response to the incident, Blizzard president and co-founder Michael 'Mike' Morhaime issued a statement announcing plans to work with Twitch and other partners to help combat the issue."We're extremely disappointed by the hateful, offensive language used by some of the online viewers during the DreamHack Austin event the weekend before last," Morhaime told Polygon."One of our company values is 'Play Nice; Play Fair;' we feel there's no place for racism, sexism, harassment, or other discriminatory behaviour, in or outside of the gaming community.""We can only hope that when instances like this come to light it encourages people to be more thoughtful and positive, and to fully reject mean-spirited commentary, whether within themselves or from their fellow gamers."We can't comment on specifics at this time, but we do have a team dedicated to improving these aspects of the chat experience with a lot of internal progress already that we hope to share with the community soon."
By the end of the 90-minute special, it s really not clear what Geraldo believes is going on within the Satanic underground, or if he even believes it exists at all.Set in Charleston, South Carolina, Exorcism introduces Abby, a working-class loner who s befriended maybe even rescued by Gretchen, a too-sheltered rich kid who bonds with Abby during a disastrous early- 80s birthday party.A few years later, the now-teenaged chums find their long-time bond challenged after a one-off acid trip, during which Gretchen disappears into darkened woods.The corpse in question is that of a largely average high-school jock whose suicide upends a rural Pennsylvania town—but whose death also brings together the unadventurous Hannah with Lacey, a class-cutting, chain-smoking, Kurt Cobain-obsessed alternakid who draws Hannah out of her happily PG existence and into a dizzying spree-turned-spiral of drugs, parties and, eventually, some blood-drenched, semi-Satanic antics.It s a decision that leads to Lacey being accused of Satanic tendencies, and that finally brings all three girls, guided by sinister motivations, to the same woods where their former classmate turned up dead.Like Exorcism s Abby and Gretchen, Fire s Lacey and Hannah are outsiders whose relationship flourishes in an environment of latchkey laissez faire-ness and shenanigans-inspiring boredom.
Google facing record fines from the EU that could be Euro 3 Billion of a maximum 10% of global turnover Euro 6.6 Billion from alleged market dominance abuse.When we look at the Android mobile system it the largest market in the world, the market of global apps downloads is at least 270 Billion by next year and highly valuable.The issue in the EU is how this has been used to prevent alternative apps being used on Android phones.This is a huge blow as it hits at the heart of google core services: search, maps, and their apps.If it is shown that these have been manipulated by google to display bias towards their own products and services then it may not just be a large fine a stake here fir the future of Google.Clearly the alphabet reorganization and the attempts by google to show adverts and preferences on their searches have not been enough to persuade the EU commission that this has been unbiased.
Image copyrightGoogle has appealed to France's highest court after the country's data watchdog ordered it to delete some of its search results globally.But Google said the ruling could lead to abuse by "less open and democratic" countries.It gives people the right to have results linked to their name removed from search websites, if they "appear to be inadequate" or "irrelevant".Google said it had reviewed almost 1.5 million requests, of which about 40% resulted in the removal of a search result.It has pointed out it is relatively simple for Europeans to access international versions of Google and find the deleted results.Google has argued that a French authority such as the CNIL should not "impose measures outside of the nation's borders".
Toxic behavior from certain sections of online gaming communities isn t a new phenomenon, but after a black Hearthstone player became the target of racist abuse during a Twitch livestream last week, gaming giant Blizzard Entertainment has vowed to work with the streaming site to block abusive comments.There were ten chat moderators were working during the match, and more were called in to help with the volume of hateful comments, but they were unable to stem the abuse aimed at Miller.Responding to the incident, Blizzard president Mike Morhaime issued the following statement to Polygon: "We're extremely disappointed by the hateful, offensive language used by some of the online viewers during the DreamHack Austin event the weekend before last.One of our company values is 'Play Nice; Play Fair;' we feel there's no place for racism, sexism, harassment, or other discriminatory behavior, in or outside of the gaming community."We're also updating our esports tournament partner policies with a stronger system of checks, balances, and repercussions to provide a better chat experience around our content, explained the Blizzard co-founder.Blizzard and Twitch won t want to censor the former, as it s part of what makes the platform enjoyable for so many people; it s the latter they re trying to eradicate.
In early 2010, Google confirmed that it had received EC complaints from Microsoft-owned Ciao and French legal search engine eJustice.fr—both of which expressed grave concerns about the terms and conditions imposed on Google s advertising syndication partners.At that point, the EC's antitrust boss outlined four different areas of concern.And it's that monopolistic behaviour that sits at the very heart of Google's status as the gatekeeper of the Internet, even as it continues to insist that "competition is just a click away."Others wondered if relationships between it and Google had simply thawed thanks to the arrival of two new chiefs at the companies.So where does Microsoft's exit—complete with the muffling of the funfair trumpet—leave the remaining complainants in the EC antitrust case?However, observers have argued that StreeMap's case was too limited in scope because it failed to address Google's alleged anti-competitive practices of demoting its rivals in the search market.
Subsidies are harder to get and Chinese labor is not tolerating the abuse that it once did.It clearly saw a large market opportunity and a way to appease the Chinese government.These robots cost less than $40,000 to purchase and as little as a dollar per hour to operate.In 2015, the supply chain for Apple s products consisted of 198 global companies with 759 subsidiaries — so this is quite complex.The largest proportion, 32.7 percent, were Japanese; 28.5 percent were American; 19.0 percent were Taiwanese; and 6.5 percent were European.To put it simply, more than half of the components of Apple s products are imported into China and practically none of the important, core, technologies are made by Chinese companies.
Photograph by Elliott Brown via FlickrThe only court where you may appeal our spies' illegal activities in the UK has finally published a report covering its activities from 2011-2015, defending itself against accusations that it is a star chamber which always meets in secret and never rules in favour of complainants .Obliged to hear two particular complaints against the intelligence agents, the IPT receives applications from those who believe they have been the victim of unlawful interference by public authorities using covert techniques regulated under RIPA, and those who believe they have been the victim of a Human Rights violation conducted by the spooks.Its creation followed the passing of the Human Rights Act 1998, after which it became necessary to ensure that the UK met Article 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights ECHR which states:Everyone whose rights and freedoms as set forth in this Convention are violated shall have an effective remedy before a national authority notwithstanding that the violation has been committed by persons acting in an official capacity.While holding hearings in camera is not unheard of in English courts — especially for the purposes of protecting children — the practice of protecting the intelligence agencies from the attention which attends public trials has some under criticism following the disclosures made by rogue NSA sysadmin Edward Snowden, which revealed illegal activities had taken place under the existing regime.Not a single complaint brought to the tribunal regarding the security and intelligence agencies' surveillance activities had been upheld until supported by the documents leaked by Edward Snowden in 2013.This means that without making any decision in the first instance as to whether the facts alleged by complainants are true, where appropriate the Tribunal invites the parties to formulate and agree issues of law for the Tribunal to decide upon the assumption that they are true This has enabled hearings to take place in public with full adversarial argument as to whether, assuming the facts, any such conduct as a claimant alleged to have occurred, by, for example, the SIAs, would have been lawful.
Dubbed the Stopping Mass Hacking SMH Act, the Senate bill PDF aims to roll back changes the Supreme Court recently issued in its stance on Rule 41 computer search warrants.Those changes allow a warrant to be issued for a computer search without the need to determine jurisdiction.Senators Ron Wyden D-OR and Rand Paul R-KY have proposed a series of amendments that make up the SMH Act and would specifically require that locational information, forcing investigators to get a warrant from a judge with jurisdiction over that area."Such a substantive change with an enormous impact on Americans' constitutional rights should be debated by Congress, not maneuvered through an obscure bureaucratic process."Rule 41 was brought to the forefront by the recent FBI bust of a child sex abuse site and its use of a Network Investigation Technique NIT and magistrate judge warrant to track down users.The bill is also co-sponsored by a bi-partisan group comprised of Tammy Baldwin, D-WI , Steve Daines R-MT and Jon Tester D-MT .
Dr. George Koob, head of the NIH's National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, said he expected the device to be a valuable resource for alcohol research community.It can help doctors accurately measure a patient s drinking history, and not just depend on the most recent tests," Koob said.The blood alcohol monitoring devices used in legal and medical circles are big and bulky, like a ball and chain for the ones using it, said Keith Nothacker, president of BACtrack.Nothacker said it takes about 45 minutes for ethanol to show up in the blood, and that the device is designed to provide a recent history of alcohol use.BACtrack has been experimenting with consumer-centric alcohol testing for several years.Reporting by Mir Ubaid; Editing by Jonathan Weber and Cynthia Osterman

Google has lodged an appeal against France's data privacy watchdog with the country's supreme courtGoogle is appealing against a ruling by France's data privacy regulator demanding that the company removes certain web search results worldwide.The Commission on Informatics and Liberty CNIL has deemed that that the EU's "right to be forgotten" policy regarding search engine results should apply globally, a claim Google attests on the grounds that it could be abused by "less open and democratic countries".However, the so-called right to be forgotten rule only applies to results from European websites or those serving EU customers, meaning companies can't scrub results from search engines accessed from other countries.The CNIL believes that France's right to be forgotten policies should be applied globally, and has imposed a €100,000 fine £77,000/$112,000 against Google for not delisting content links on a more widespread basis.Google has now lodged an appeal against the sanction with France's supreme administrative court, saying the CNIL's demands runs the risk of allowing countries to impose their own laws in those in which they have no authority.For example, this could prevent French citizens from seeing content that is perfectly legal in France.

In case you haven t been following the perennial battle between the music industry and streaming services, record companies and artists are currently none-too-pleased with the royalty rates they receive from YouTube and other services.Related: The high-tech vinyl revival is onGeoff Taylor, the chief executive of the BPI said: Dominant tech platforms like YouTube are able to abuse liability protections as royalty havens, dictating terms so they can grab the value from music for themselves, at the expense of artists.The long-term consequences of this will be serious, reducing investment in new music, making it difficult for most artists to earn a living, and undermining the growth of more innovative services like Spotify and Apple Music that pay more fairly for the music they use.YouTube, naturally, defended itself in a statement given to the Guardian.It says its Content ID system has enabled artists to combat piracy by deciding whether to have unauthorised use of music removed or to license and earn money from it.YouTube has become the focus of artists ire in recent months.
Photograph: Scott E Barbour/Getty ImagesA surge has been recorded in violent crimes against London taxi drivers, prompting a fresh spat between Uber and black cabs over who is to blame.The Metropolitan police figures show that since 2012 – when Uber arrived in London – the total number of violent crimes has doubled from 709 in 2012.The low standard of their driving also causes many conflicts with other road users and a combination of all this, plus low dispute resolution skills, contributes to the figures.We take any incidents against licensed drivers who use our app very seriously and always help the police with their investigations.However, Uber has questioned whether The Knowledge – which black-cab drivers have to pass to show they know thousands of streets and landmarks – is necessary in an age of GPS and traffic apps.These are particularly useful in respect of false allegations made against the driver and in respect of racial abuse, said a spokesperson for the National Taxi Association.
Andrea Castillo, program manager in the Technology Policy Program at George Mason University s Mercatus Center, argues against such a mandate.Indeed, state requirements vary in 47 states, and federal rules are inconsistent across sectors and lack specificity.The Cybersecurity Act signed into law in December, as part of a broader spending bill, creates a framework for voluntary sharing of cyberthreat information.This is a significant step, but it, too, doesn't go far enough.The government should first focus on correcting policy missteps from the past.It should promote the use of strong encryption and reform counterproductive laws like the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act that chill security research.
