This means we can see the impact on audience numbers ‘live’ in the regions the show is appearing in.“Viewers would also be encouraged to download the app through links in the Twitch chat section, by being called out by the presenters themselves and with the link appearing as screen overlays too. We’ll also be branding the actual table The Yogscast team are playing on.”The Yogscast’s chief revenue officer, Rich Keith, added, “The Yogscast Poker Nights have been hugely popular with our audience, both as live experiences on Twitch and through video-on-demand on YouTube.“As they take a lot of time and additional investment to produce our partnership with KamaGames means we’re able to extend the amount of Poker Nights we’re able to produce so it goes from a one-off to a proper series of matches.”Dublin-headquartered KamaGames recently broke into Eilers and Krejcik Gaming’s top 15 publishers in Q1, posting a 40.5% year on year increase in revenues on the back of a 63.4% year-on-year increase in annual revenues to $57.5m in 2017.The Pokerist Texas Poker app accounts for approximately 75% of the company’s revenues, with the publisher’s blackjackist, roulettist and slots apps driving the remainder.

The house is located in a private condominium in the Barbalha city, Cariri region, in the south of Ceará. It is sited in a rectangular lot of 10 meters wide and 23 meters in length. The needs program is formed by three suites – two on the upper floor and one on the ground floor, which has an adapted bathroom in order to host the elderly parents of the owner. All the spaces are fully integrated: social area, living area, dining room, kitchen and a small balcony that receives an ofuro. On the upper floor, besides the two suites, there are also an office and a family room. The garage was designed for two cars. The whole program was distributed in an area of 210m², including ground floor and upper floor. Save this picture!© Joana FrançaThe spaces were distributed in order to prioritize the continuity, with few partition walls, integrating the inside and the outside when the great frames of wood shutters are opened to the outside garden. These shutters have independent openings that directs the wind according to the residents’ needs. The house is sited in a flat terrain having the largest frontages facing the southwest and the northeast. This orientation led to the adoption of some elements aiming climate mitigation, like a great wood panel, which design was inspired in the modern artist Athos Bulcão, that protects the southwest façade, filtering the direct sunlight and relieving the thermal load.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaSave this picture!Plan – Ground FloorSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Joana FrançaThe staircase is enlightened through a skylight, that also illuminate an internal garden, and in contrast to every other element of the house, it was executed in red painted sheet metal, unfolding itself like an origami at each step. The residence is set by three great volumes that stands out from each other – one of them is the water tank. The finishes and material choices, like white texture, wood and concrete, endorse the purity of the building.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaProject gallerySee allShow lessEmbodied Energy in Building Materials: What it is and How to Calculate ItArticlesHenning Larsen to Design Copenhagen’s First All Timber NeighborhoodArchitecture News Share “COPY” “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931702/c-house-lins-arquitetos-associados Clipboardlast_img read more

first_imgCarl HamptonOn July 26, 1970, the Houston Police Department gunned down a 21-year-old leader of Houston’s Black community, Carl Hampton, after a 10-day standoff outside of the Peoples Party II headquarters.On July 25-26, Hampton was honored by fellow Black Panthers, his family, local politicians and many, many community activists in Hampton’s home neighborhood of Pleasantville, on the 45th anniversary of his death.“Forty-five years ago a brilliant leader was taken from us by the Houston police, a man who was educated, revolutionary and in tune with the needs of the African-American people of Houston, and today we honor him and his accomplishments,” said Akua Holt, chair of the July 25 rally at the Judson Robinson Sr. Community Center.Hampton’s sister, Audrey Hampton Bell, told Workers World that she was so pleased to have her brother remembered. “He was a special young man. To have him taken from us at such an early age, it was wrong.” She received a proclamation from the office of U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee at the rally. “It still hurts to remember what happened, but the kindness here today is beautiful,” Hampton’s sister said.Hampton had gone to Oakland in the late 1960s to work with the Black Panther Party and returned to Houston hoping to open a chapter. The national headquarters was not authorizing chapters at that time, thus Hampton named the organization he began in Houston, Peoples Party II.At the gravesite of Carl Hampton.WW photo: Gloria RubacAmong the speakers at the rally were Kofi Taharka, national chair of the National Black United Front; a representative of Workers World Party; and state Rep. Harold Dutton, who represents the Pleasantville neighborhood. Special guests were members of the Black Panther Alumni Association — James Aaron, ”Bunchy” Crear, Claude Frost, Sensei Benton, Bobby Reed, as well as the minister of culture for the Black Panther Party, Emory Douglass, who displayed decades of Panther art and also showed a PowerPoint presentation of Panther and U.S. history through art taken from the covers and cartoons of the Panther newspaper.Musical presentations included a guest appearance by Archie Bell, who performed his best-known song, the 1968 hit “Tighten Up.”On July 26, the former Panthers and supporters held a graveside tribute to Hampton at Golden Gate Cemetery.

first_img Stemming the Rising Tide of Misinformation SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 5, 2015 Here are a few additional suggestions I have for sorting out fact from fiction on social media channels. First, review your friends list and determine which ones are members of radical animal groups like PETA, HSUS, and MFA,environmental groups like CSPI, NRDC, and Greenpeace, or any number of organic or anti- GMO groups. You should seriously consider deleting these people from your friend list because, obviously, they are people of questionable character and intelligence. Previous articleSunday OutlookNext articleInfluential Ag Leader Wayne Townsend, Dies at 89 Gary Truitt Katlin Fritz, the program manager for the Food Innovation Center at Ohio State, has had a similar experience. “Recently, I checked my Facebook news feed and saw a friend had posted that she “would no longer eat eggs” based on an article she had read. Chances are you have seen links on Facebook or Twitter promoting a point-of-view without quoting scientific evidence. Misinformation shared in social media often breeds confusion, frustration, and sometimes fear. Information that’s misleading or inaccurate is extremely abundant on the Internet.” The problem is, when it comes to information about food and nutrition, a lot of people use the internet as their source of information.  Ms. Fritz has put together some guidelines for sorting out fact from BS on food and nutrition issues. Home Commentary Stemming the Rising Tide of Misinformation It happens almost every day. I open my Facebook account and see some totally false and usually slanderous piece of information shared by someone on my friend list.  Sometimes there is an insipid comment added by this person like “this is awful” or “share if you agree.”  I used to comment on these posts pointing out their blunder or directing them to resources that had the true facts, but this turned into a full time job that did not pay anything. So now I am just jaded and cynical and slide past this junk — most of the time. Facebook Twitter SHARE She suggests looking at the source. “Websites that are reliable generally cite sources of scientific studies, medical facts and figures, identify authors or contributors, and disclose any financial interests the sponsors may have in selling a particular product. Look at who is running the website and its purpose.”  She also recommends carefully considering the credentials of the “experts” who appear on-line. Anyone can be an expert on the internet. Yet, the concept of actually checking to see if something is true before you pass it on is a concept that has eluded the sizeable majority of people currently using social media. I made an exception this past week and commented on a load of misinformation posted about the Country of Origin Labeling issue.  This was the about the 20th time I had seen this particular pack of lies go by in the past few weeks. My thoughtful and factual comments were mostly surrounded  by reactionary comments like, “I don’t trust the USDA,” “I don’t buy meat from grocery stores,” or “I want to know where my food comes from.” This is another reason I seldom engage in this kind of thing: even when you present the truth, people will reject it if it does not fit their preconceived ideas. The most foolproof way to separate truth from twaddle is to go to the original source. This is what we real journalists do as compared to social media journalists who simply click the share button. Take a few seconds, track a post back to the original source, and then verify its authenticity.   There are several web sites that will do this for you if you are not sure if a source if telling the truth. This is the least you can do before you share something.  If you are too lazy to do this, then you are contributing to the level of misinformation on the internet and dumbing down the collective intelligence of mankind.By Gary Truitt There may be people on your list that seemed normal and sensible when you added them but have shown a propensity to share links  from questionable news sources. In these cases, you may want to adjust your settings so that you only see important personal items they post not the junk they share from some moronic celebrity. I have found that some of the most ridiculous information comes from celebrities, or people who think they are, Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

ArgentinaAmericas Help by sharing this information December 4, 2019 Find out more Another radio programme withdrawn under political pressurecenter_img to go further July 19, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia News Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its concern about the termination of Argentine radio and TV programmes under political pressure after ‘Voces de mi Tierra,’ a programme broadcast by two local radio stations in the far-south province of Santa Cruz, became the sixth programme to suffer this fate since the start of the year.Presented for the past three years by journalist Pablo Lagalle, the programme was broadcast on Sundays by LU Provincia in the city of Santa Cruz and LRA 59 in the city of Gobernador Gregores.It was withdrawn because of a report by Lagalle highlighting the public health dangers of the local mining industry. He said open-cast mining, the use of cyanide and the wasteful use of water – a key resource in Patagonia – caused a great deal of harm to the local population.Lagalle told Reporters Without Borders that municipal councillor Juan Vásquez wrote to LRA59 directors Oscar Herrero and Sonia San Pedro requesting a recording of this edition of the programme. The management subsequently withdrew the programme altogether, without giving any clear reason for its decision.___________________________________14.06.06 – Tense standoff deepens between press and local authorities Reporters Without Borders condemns press freedom violations in Quilmes, Buenos Aires province, which it said highlights growing tensions between the press and the authorities since the election of President Nestor Kirchner on 25 May 2003. As the local opposition press protests at censorship and persecution against them by the authorities in Quilmes, the press freedom organisation made a new appeal to the president to guarantee the independence of the media.Recently the mayor of Quilmes, Sergio Villordo, tried to close two privately-owned radio stations, FAN 103.9 and Radio Quilmes 106.9. In mid-May, government broadcast regulator COMFER abruptly withdrew their licences. The journalists appealed to the national congress and the chamber of deputies finally voted unanimously on 7 June urging COMFER to take the necessary steps to ensure the media’s continuity.Pedro Navarro, director of Radio Quilmes, said that Sergio Villordo had reacted because of investigations carried out by the two media into municipal administration, particularly the use of public funds. Navarro added that the local authorities made it difficult for critical media to get access to official information.Elsewhere on 19 May 2006, Gustavo Orlando, head of Radio Plus, and a journalist with the station, Néstor Carrigall, were attacked by two people in a car, who pointed a gun at them and threatened to kill them. They warned them they intended to get Radio Plus shut down and told them to stop demonstrating about censorship. A demonstration had been held the previous day in protest at the discrimination and persecution suffered by local media. Gustavo Orlando and Néstor Carrigall complained to the Quilmes criminal court and asked the prosecutor to provide them with police protection._____________________________________________9.06.06 – Support for journalists protesting against the government’s authoritarian tendencies Reporters Without Borders today voiced concern about the deterioration in relations between the government and press since Néstor Kirchner took over as president in May 2003 and the arbitrary sanctions that have been taken with increasing frequency against critical news media and journalists. These have included withdrawal of programmes, firings and discriminatory allocation of state advertising.“Political pressure from the president’s supporters and associates continue to limit the freedom of expression of some journalists in both the state and privately-owned media,” the organisation said. “We call on the Argentine government to stop this behaviour and we voice our support for the journalists who are currently protesting against the government’s attempts to silence its critics.”In one of the most recent cases, Marcela Pacheco, the presenter of the midnight news programme on the state-owned Canal 7 TV station, was fired on 6 June for criticising a rally organised by President Kirchner on 25 May to mark the third anniversary of his installation.The Perfil publishing house and daily newspaper brought a court action on 31 May accusing the government of discriminating against the daily Perfil and the magazines Noticias and Fortuna by not allocating them any advertising. Leading media figures gathered the same day in support of this initiative, accusing the federal government of assigning advertising in a biased manner and thereby restricting access to official information.The current affairs programme Séptimo Día on local radio station Lu12 Radio Río Gallegos in the southern province of Santa Cruz was terminated on 3 May as a result of pressure from the deputy governor Carlos Sancho. The programme’s presenter, Héctor Barabino, said this followed a phone call to Lu12 owner María Eugenia Sanhueza from an official close to Sancho saying all state advertising would be withdrawn if the programme continued. The station earns 28,000 pesos (about 7,000 euros) a month from state advertising.The station’s management ended the programme after Barabino refused to moderate its critical analysis of local and national news.The suspension of two other radio and TV programmes following pressure from local and national politicians was already criticised by Reporters Without Borders in releases on 5 January and 21 April.The organisation has also voiced surprise on several occasions at the way the access of journalists to government information and senior officials, including the president, has been obstructed.

first_img A young blogger, Win Zaw Naing, is facing a possibly 15-year jail sentence just for posting pictures and reports about the September 2007 protests, known as the Saffron Revolution. Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association call for his release and the release of all the other detained bloggers.“The international community is so absorbed by diplomatic strategies aimed at resolving the Burmese crisis that it seems to be neglecting the fact that the military government is continuing its repression and is still arresting journalists, bloggers and human rights activists,” the two organisations said.“The release of prisoners of conscience should continue to be a major priority for the international community,” Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association added. “Without the freedom to inform others, next year’s elections will be neither free nor fair.”Win Zaw Naing, 24, has been held for the past several weeks by police in the Rangoon district of Kyauktada, where he has not been allowed to see a lawyer. He was arrested under article 33 (A) of the Electronic Act, which provides for sentences of up to 15 years in prison.Sources have told the organisations that he was arrested for posting photos of the September 2007 protests on his blog (http://shwenyarthar.co.cc/). The photos showed protesters, including Buddhist monks. The blog is still accessible but the police ordered the withdrawal of the photos and certain articles.A resident of Hlaing Tharyar district, Win Zaw Naing works as a typist at a Rangoon publishing house.Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association have confirmed that four journalists were recently arrested. They are Paing Soe Oo, a freelancer known by the pen-name of Jay Paing; Thant Zin Soe, who works for Foreign Affairs Journal; Nyi Nyi Htun, a freelancer known by the pen-name of Mee-doke; and Khant Min Htet, a poet and graphic designer.
