Similarly, Suman Howladar, Founder, Foiwe Info Global Solutions, says that employees are not pushed to screen violent content from the word go but are put through a two-week training process, sensitising them about the scope of work. "We give gruesome content to only certain people in the organisation and in case they have issues, our HR helps puts them in less sensitive projects," says Howladar. AMBIGUOUS STANDARDS Another challenge that content moderators grapple with on a regular basis is the ambiguous standards that vary from country to country. "The concept of racism and nudity varies from client to client and even countries. What may sound abusive to Indians may not be true to Europeans," says Rao. For instance, clients from India are skittish about any form of nudity while a dating platform in the US is okay with partial nudity, where a user covers his or her private parts with hands.

As a result, Iran’s banking sector is now weighed down with a high proportion of non-performing loans, accounting for around 11% of total bank debt. When bank balance sheets grew increasingly precarious as non-payment of loans mounted in the sanctions period, competition for deposits grew. Exacerbating this competition, banks needed to provide higher deposits rates in order to stay ahead of inflation. The combination of forces pushed interest rates up to all-time highs. The debt market in Iran is now broken. The IMF has urged urgent action to “restructure and recapitalize banks.” In the meantime, banks remain disinclined to lend and in the instances where healthier banks are able to provide loans, borrowers must contend with the high cost of debt. This may help explain why the Rouhani administration so aggressively sought to address inflation—it was a necessary step to reduce the benchmark interest rate, which has so far been reduced from a high of 22% in 2014 to the current rate of 18%.

A nearby square was packed with floral tributes and heart-shaped balloons, as well as runners' bibs left by participants in a half-marathon on Sunday. "You tried to destroy us but you've brought us closer together," read one message of defiance. Blue suitcase Investigators pushed ahead with their probe of the attack, which was claimed by the Islamic State group. Police officers could be seen conducting a search at a rubbish tip near Manchester and released images of Abedi carrying a blue suitcase hours before the attack, asking the public where and when they might have seen him with it in the preceding days. "We have no reason to believe the case and its contents contain anything dangerous, but would ask people to be cautious," the police said in a statement, stressing that the suitcase was different from the backpack Abedi used in the attack.

In the wake of recent problems , a partial fix has been pushed for SuperSU. Root loss on older (pre-4.4/Kit Kat) phones should no longer be an issue. Unfortunately, this latest update doesn't fix the bootlooping some Sony Xperia phones are experiencing. If you're using SuperSU on one, you should continue to stick with 2.79 for now. In an update to his post on XDA, Chainfire announced that v2.82 should fix some of the problems users were experiencing.

Save for the most fearless, rock-hurling shebab , everyone takes cover, or flees. This past Friday, I found out that popular protest Nabi Saleh-style is a very different affair. Little Nabi Saleh, population 500 (all from one family — the Tamimis), has had a reputation for militant protest since late 2009, when their spring and adjacent agricultural lands were stolen by Halamish settlement, a stone’s throw to the south. Several villagers have been killed in the course of these demonstrations, including Mustafa Tamimi, hit in the chest by a high velocity tear gas canister. I had no idea how militant peaceful, popular protest could be. Last Friday, a hundred villagers ranging in age from nine or ten to senior citizens pointed fingers, shook fists and waved flags in the faces of heavily armed police. They pushed the cops back, sitting down on the pavement when the teargas began to fly.

The next one will be Malaysia, which is why I am here. Who is the brains behind the designs and technologies of the watches? My father and I are both involved in the building and designing process, but we have a young incredible engineer in Jean-Francois Mojon. The year we developed the Cyrus Klepsys Moon, he was nominated the best watch-maker in the world. How is it different being a watchmaker from a surgeon? Both are highly precise jobs that require passion. They both have their own challenges. A physician needs more interaction with people, while watchmaking is much more technical. What pushed you to become who you are today? A lot of people said that it must be the money, but it's not.

Exactly 25 years ago, on May 29, 1992, Apple CEO John Sculley went on stage during the CES show in Chicago and launched a tablet. If that sentence sounds all wrong, that's because a lot has changed in the quarter decade since. If you even remember Sculley as Apple CEO, you're probably thinking of the man who pushed Steve Jobs out of the company. And in the nineties, no one had tablets. And isn't CES typically held in Las Vegas? To that we say: Yes, yes and yes. The tablet Sculley presented that year was the Newton, a device that had some potential, but essentially came out a decade and a half too early. Read more... More about Apple , Newton , and Business

Artist’s concept of chloride salts bubbling up from Europa’s liquid ocean and reaching the frozen surface. Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech Having this many sensors on the lander would give scientists the ability to combine data, allowing them to overcome the issue of variable seismic vibrations recorded by each. As such, ensuring that they are rugged is a must. Seismometers need to connect with the solid ground to operate most effectively. If each leg carries a seismometer, these could be pushed into the surface on landing, making good contact with the ground. We can also sort out high frequency signals from longer wavelength ones. For example, small meteorites hitting the surface not too far away would produce high frequency waves, and tides of gravitational tugs from Jupiter and Europa’s neighbor moons would make long, slow waves. Such a device could also prove crucial to missions other “ ocean worlds ” within the Solar System, which include Ceres , Ganymede, Callisto, Enceladus , Titan , and others.

YANGON: Major peace talks between the Myanmar authorities and ethnic armed groups ended in deadlock today, with officials blaming rebel demands for autonomy from central government. State media said negotiators from the government, army and multiple ethnic armed groups agreed on 33 out of 41 points discussed during the five-day conference. But they could not reach an agreement on the key issue of federalism, a major demand of ethnic minority groups currently locked in bitter conflicts with the army. Fighting between government soldiers and insurgent groups is at its worst since the 1980s, with tens of thousands of refugees pushed into neighbouring China. The military fears the union will "split into pieces" if rebels do not agree to a non-secession clause in any peace deal, government spokesman Zaw Htay told reporters on Sunday. "We did not get agreement on the matter of seceding," he said.

The incident has pushed relations between the two countries to the lowest level for several years. Qatari news sites were subsequently blocked in countries across the region, including Saudi Arabia. In a further sign of a deepening rift between the two countries, the Saudi newspaper Okaz has reported that members of a prominent Saudi family demanded Qatar's state mosque, the Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab Mosque, be renamed. The demand came amid questions over the Qatari royal family's link to Abdul Wahhab, co-founder of the Saudi state. — AFP
