Twitter briefly restricts Trump campaign account, Republicans decry company’s actions

first_imgMcEnany likewise began tweeting again on Thursday, saying she regained access after deleting her post on the report.Both Facebook Inc and Twitter took proactive steps on Wednesday to restrict dissemination of the Post story in the hours after it was published.Facebook reduced how often the story shows up in users’ news feeds and elsewhere on the platform, an action spokesman Andy Stone said the company takes temporarily pending fact checker review “if we have signals that a piece of content is false.”Facebook did not respond to Reuters questions on whether its fact-checking partners were working on rating the Post’s story.Twitter prohibited its users from posting links to two New York Post articles about Hunter Biden, saying they violated its policies against posting private information and “hacked materials.”But Twitter’s Chief Executive Jack Dorsey tweeted on Wednesday “our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable.”A Twitter spokesman declined to answer Reuters questions on whether Dorsey had been involved in the decisions on these restrictions on Wednesday or Thursday.Republicans on the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee responded to Twitter’s actions by tweeting a link to a copy of the New York Post’s story on its website. Twitter blocked the link but later said this had been in error and reversed the action.The @nypost has not tweeted in over a day, suggesting that they are still blocked from posting.A spokeswoman for the New York Post declined to comment, other than referring Reuters to the Post’s own coverage.Republican lawmakers slammed the social media companies’ actions on Thursday. US Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said the blocking of the story was “reprehensible” and that there should be no “speech police” in the United States.After Twitter imposed the restrictions, the US Senate Judiciary Committee moved to subpoena Dorsey.Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham and Republican senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley said the committee will vote on sending the subpoena on Oct. 20 and plans to have Dorsey in front of the committee by Oct. 23.Hawley also called for sending a subpoena to Facebook.”We’re going to finally have an accounting that is long overdue,” Graham said. “This to me crystallizes the problem better than anything I could think of.”Topics : US President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign’s Twitter account was briefly restricted on Thursday, causing an outcry from Republican lawmakers who accused social media companies of acting like “speech police” and vowing to hold Twitter responsible.Twitter temporarily blocked the @TeamTrump account from sending tweets after it posted a video about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son that it said violated its rules.The video referred to a New York Post story from Wednesday that contained alleged details of Hunter Biden’s business dealings with a Ukrainian energy company and said the former vice president had met with an adviser of the company. Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement that Republican-led Senate committees have previously concluded that Joe Biden engaged in no wrongdoing related to Ukraine. He also denied such a meeting had taken place.A Twitter spokesman said earlier on Thursday that the @TeamTrump account, and the accounts of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and the New York Post, had been blocked from tweeting because of the company’s policies on hacked materials and posting private information. He said the accounts may need to delete the rule-breaking posts to continue tweeting.The Trump campaign, with 2.2 million followers, was sending tweets again on Thursday afternoon. It said in a new tweet it was “re-posting the video Twitter doesn’t want you to watch.” A Twitter spokesman told Reuters that the site would not take action as alterations to the video meant it no longer violated its policies.”It’s going to all end up in a big lawsuit and there are things that can happen that are very severe that I’d rather not see happen, but it’s probably going to have to,” Trump said when asked about the move by Twitter.last_img read more

UK to introduce porn ID checks by April 2018

first_imgNZ Herald 18 July 2017The UK government will introduce compulsory identification checks by April next year to ensure those viewing pornography online are over age 18.UK Digital Minister Matt Hancock signed the commencement of the Digital Economy Act on Monday which will eventually ensure those who cannot “normally” access porn are unable to do so online.It will mean ID checks for viewers and includes provisions for fines of more than $400,000 or five per cent of their turnover for providers. The act will also punish bots used to snap up and resell concert tickets and raise the penalty for online piracy from two to 10 years.However it’s not yet known how the scheme will work in practice. One suggestion includes making users input credit card details before granting access. Another earlier suggestion included screening users via the electoral roll.The move is designed to stop children accessing pornography inadvertently. A Net Children Go Mobile report said nearly 20 per cent of 9-16 year olds in the UK had been exposed to sexual images online.READ MORE:   Age checks to be required for pornography sites in UKNewsHub 18 July 2017Netsafe says no such age checking systems are used in New Zealand, leaving under-18 Kiwis at risk of being exposed to pornography accidently or purposely.They have a number of tips for parents worried about their children being exposed to such content:Install family friendly programs or filters that block out explicit materialBeing interested in what children are searching online and communicating openlyFind support around what parents can do and psychological agencies they can turn to if their child is exposed.READ MORE: read more

Matic calls on ex-Man Utd stars to be more supportive in media

The likes of Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Roy Keane have all transitioned into punditry since bringing the curtains down on their respective careers. “I think it’s their job if they go on television, it’s their job to say something. Sometimes they say the truth, probably, sometimes they criticise the younger players which isn’t good, in my opinion,” Serbia international Matic told Omnisport.Advertisement Loading… Promoted ContentThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Madigan misses out on Ireland squad

first_img Leinster playmaker Madigan has missed out with Schmidt instead opting to take just two specialist fly-halves, Racing Metro’s Johnny Sexton and Ulster’s Paddy Jackson. Former Leinster boss Schmidt said Madigan will tour Romania with the Emerging Ireland squad, along with Munster’s fast-improving outside-half Ian Keatley. Ian Madigan has been left out of Ireland’s summer tour to Argentina as head coach Joe Schmidt selected four uncapped stars in a 30-man squad. Leinster wing Dave Kearney’s knee injury suffered against Ulster on Saturday has ruled him out of the tour, with fit-again Munster flyer Simon Zebo slotting in after missing the entire Six Nations. South Africa-born Ulster duo Diack and Herring have qualified through residency and could make international debuts this summer. Prop Cronin and half-back Marmion have also been handed chances to shine, while Darren Cave and Robbie Henshaw will battle it out to succeed the retired Brian O’Driscoll at outside centre. Schmidt admitted it would be vital to hand a number of senior stars a rest this summer, with the World Cup next autumn already hurtling into view. Sean Cronin and Dan Tuohy are two more left at home after battling injury for much of the campaign. “It’s really just player management,” Schmidt said. “There are guys who have had continuous niggly injuries that are going to be given a good amount of time in the pre-season to recover from those. “Obviously Sean (O’Brien) has come back (after shoulder surgery) and played very few minutes. “It was a discussion I had with both players (O’Brien and Bowe), and there are a number of others who we would feel are better served by getting a window to fully recover. “Also a number of them have accumulated very brief pre-seasons by the time they go away on June tours, Lions tours and the like.” Robbie Diack, Rob Herring, James Cronin and Kieran Marmion are the four uncapped tourists heading to Argentina next month. Cian Healy, Gordon D’Arcy, Sean O’Brien and Tommy Bowe have been handed a break in the summer, with Schmidt conscious of an arduous and unrelenting build-up to Rugby World Cup 2015. “We believe to only take two scrum-halves would be very, very difficult, so we have gone for three scrum-halves,” said Schmidt, explaining Madigan’s omission. “To go with six halves would have been a real tightening of numbers. “The thing for Ian is he hasn’t had a lot of game time recently. “I have had a really good discussion with him. He is going to come in and train with us, but he will go on the emerging tour and that will give him and the likes of Ian Keatley time to get game time over there. “We will still be keeping a close eye on that group.” Ireland face the Pumas in Resistencia on June 7 before a second Test in Tucuman on June 15.

Palermo: English clubs want Dybala

first_img Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has reportedly claimed Premier League outfits Arsenal and Manchester City are interested in the 21-year-old, along with a number of other clubs. With Palermo having already secured Serie A football for next season, Zamparini has instructed coach Giuseppe Iachini to rest the team’s leading scorer to avoid any complications that would affect his sale. “I have asked Iachini not to play Dybala in these last few games,” Zamparini said, according to Italian newspaper La Repubblica. “It’s possible that in the next eight to 10 days we will sell the player, and I want to avoid injuries in this very delicate phase. “There is strong interest in him. In Italy there’s Juventus, Inter and Milan. “Meanwhile, in Europe there’s Paris St Germain and Arsenal, as well as Manchester City who would like to try and get him but must sell first for Financial Fair Play.” Palermo are ready to cash in on Dybala after the South American turned down a three-year contract extension in January. Dybala, who moved to Palermo in 2012 from home club Instituto, has scored 13 goals and set up 10 more in 34 league appearances to ensure the Sicilian outfit will be in Italy’s top flight for a second straight season. He started in Saturday’s goalless draw at Sassuolo that lifted Palermo to 10th in the standings with four games remaining. Palermo host Atalanta this Sunday. Paulo Dybala is set to miss Palermo’s final four Serie A games as the club prepare to sell their star Argentinian forward.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

India steamroll Bangladesh in pink test to sweep series

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyKOLKATA, India (Reuters) – Umesh Yadav struck three times as India took less than an hour on day three to complete formalities and bulldoze Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs in the second and final test for a 2-0 series sweep on Sunday.Having barely managed to avoid a defeat inside two days, Bangladesh resumed on 152-6, hoping to score another 89 runs to avoid a second successive innings defeat.But once Mushfiqur Rahim fell for 74, the highest by a Bangladesh batsman in the one-sided match, the game was effectively over for them.Bangladesh, skittled out for 106 in the first innings, managed 195 in the second as India registered their 12th consecutive home series victory to consolidate their lead in the World Test Championship points table.Mahmudullah, who retired hurt on Saturday with a hamstring injury, did not come out to bat for Bangladesh.Umesh claimed 5-53, while Ishant Sharma returned 4-56 to go with his five-wicket haul in the first innings.Ishant bagged both the man-of-the-match and player-of-the-series awards.India captain Virat Kohli singled out his pace attack for their sizzling form. “These guys can take wickets on any surface, be it at home or away,” Kohli said.“They are very hungry and at the top of their game.”India’s seventh straight Test victory was also their fourth successive innings win.Bangladesh had to call in two concussion substitutes in the match after Liton Das and Nayeem Hasan sustained nasty blows to their helmets in the first innings.Mominul Haque made a forgettable debut as Bangladesh’s new test captain, scoring a pair of ducks in Kolkata.“It’s very disappointing for everyone including me, we have to learn from this,” Mominul said after the drubbing.“I think the pink ball is different when it’s a new ball and it was a little bit challenging.”India had triumphed inside three days in the series opener in Indore.There was a buzz around India’s maiden pink-ball test with near-capacity crowd on the first two days of the contest.“We didn’t think so many would turn up today, given we were in a position to end it early,” Kohli said.“To have so many people witnessing an India win is special.”BANGLADESH 1st innings 106India 1st Iinnings 347 for 9 declaredBangladesh 2nd innings o/n 152 for 6Shadman Islam lbw Ishant Sharma 0Imrul Kayes c Virat Kohli b Ishant Sharma 5Mominul Haque c Wriddhiman Saha b Ishant Sharma 0Mohammad Mithun c Mohammed Shami b Umesh Yadav 6Mushfiqur Rahim c Ravindra Jadeja b Umesh Yadav 74Mahmudullah Retired Hurt 39Mehidy Hasan c Virat Kohli b Ishant Sharma 15Taijul Islam c Ajinkya Rahane b Umesh Yadav 11Ebadat Hossain c Virat Kohli b Umesh Yadav 0Al-Amin Hossain c Wriddhiman Saha b Umesh Yadav 21Abu Jayed Not Out 2Extras 8b 9lb 0nb 0pen 5w 22Total (41.1 overs) 195 all outFall of Wickets : 1-0 Anik, 2-2 Haque, 3-9 Ali, 4-13 Kayes, 5-133 Miraz, 6-152 Islam, 7-152 Hossain, 8-184 Rahim, 9-195 HossainDid Not Bat : Das, HasanBowling: Ishant Sharma 13 – 2 – 56 – 4, Umesh Yadav 14.1 – 1- 53 – 5,Mohammed Shami 8 – 0 – 42 – 0 ( 1w), Ravichandran Ashwin 5 – 0 – 19 – 0,Ravindra Jadeja 1 – 0 – 8 – 0.last_img read more

Chief of Staff to retire after nine years

first_img“[He] is one of the most familiar and friendly faces on our campuses,” Interim President Austin wrote in a statement to the Daily Trojan. “He has been an advisor to many of his colleagues and an excellent sounding board for me during this critical transition period. We will very much miss his daily presence on our campuses and wish him much happiness in retirement.” Cornell first came to the University as a visiting professor at the School of Dramatic Arts in 1991. He then served as the managing director of SDA and was later appointed executive director of University events in 1995.  “New presidents get to have their own chiefs of staff and their own teams, and that’s the way it should be,” Cornell said. “They need to have their own sense of trust with people.” “A chief of staff is connected to the president they serve,” Cornell said. “When [Nikias] stepped down, technically I stepped down. They rehired me the next day to work with [Interim President Wanda Austin].” While working as chief of protocol, Cornell worked closely with C.L. Max Nikias when the former president was the dean of the Viterbi School of Engineering. When Nikias was named president in 2010, he asked Cornell to be his chief of staff. Dennis Cornell, who has served as chief of staff for two presidents, and worked under three, will retire June 30 after being at the University for almost 30 years. Cornell said his retirement is bittersweet, but he is ready to return to his roots in the theater arts, likely serving as the chair of the Pasadena Playhouse and traveling the world to see theater. Although Cornell said President-elect Carol Folt asked him to stay on while she searched for her own chief of staff, Cornell said it was time for a new era for the University. center_img “My job as the chief of staff was to keep all the engines running.” Under Nikias, Cornell represented USC in visits to South Korea among other countries, the Daily Trojan previously reported. Cornell’s background in the entertainment industry, such as serving as vice president of casting and talent development for Columbia Pictures Television and Sony Pictures Television, lent him to the arts, he said. When he served as chief of protocol and associate senior vice president in 2001, Cornell oversaw the artistic direction of about 200 USC programs per year. Cornell helped create the arts and humanities initiative Visions and Voices and oversaw special projects such as the University’s 125th anniversary celebration.  “[Doing this job,] you learn every day about how to grow and how to be more transparent … more accountable to our constituents,” Cornell said. “I’ve probably learned more in the last two years than I’ve learned ever at USC — and I’ve learned a lot here.”  Overseeing the Office · As chief of staff, Dennis Cornell was in charge of representing the Office of the President to the USC community through coordinating events, managing budget expenses and acting as a liaison between the senior administration and the president. (Daily Trojan file photo) The chief of staff position reports directly to the president, managing their daily tasks and acting as a liaison between them, the senior administration and the Board of Trustees. According to a job posting on USC’s website, the University is actively searching for a new chief of staff who can “[think] strategically, making complex decisions in an extremely fast paced and sensitive environment.”last_img read more
