The Daily 202: Seven reasons to be suspicious of the DOJ lawsuit to stop AT&T from buying CNN. Security Breach and Spilled Secrets Have Shaken the N.S.A. to Its Core. With a leak of intelligence methods like the N.S.A. tools, Mr. Panetta said, “Every time it happens, you essentially have to start over.” Fifteen months into a wide-ranging investigation by the agency’s counterintelligence arm, known as Q Group, and the F.B.I., officials still do not know whether the N.S.A. is the victim of a brilliantly executed hack, with Russia as the most likely perpetrator, an insider’s leak, or both. Three employees have been arrested since 2015 for taking classified files, but there is fear that one or more leakers may still be in place. And there is broad agreement that the damage from the Shadow Brokers already far exceeds the harm to American intelligence done by Edward J. Snowden, the former N.S.A. contractor who fled with four laptops of classified material in 2013. Mr. Snowden’s cascade of disclosures to journalists and his defiant public stance drew far more media coverage than this new breach.

Miksi kummallisesta peräkontti-gatesta tuli Suomen politiikan päivän ykköspuheenaihe? – kokosimme käänteet. Väite peräkonttiin sulloutuneesta valtiosihteeristä sai aikaan vilkkaan poliittisen keskustelun. Keskustelu perussuomalaisten hajoamisesta kesäkuussa otti uusia kierroksia torstaina.

Keskustelu aiheesta kiihtyi iltaan mennessä jopa niin, että se sai aikaan surkuhupaisiakin piirteitä. Kaikki lähti siitä, kun Iltalehti ja Aamulehti julkaisivat aamulla uutisen (siirryt toiseen palveluun), jossa kerrottiin ulkoministeri Timo Soinin (sin.) valtiosihteerin Samuli Virtasen vierailusta pääministeri Juha Sipilän (kesk.) luona perussuomalaisten puoluekokouksen aikana.

Iltalehti oli jo aiemmin kertonut, että Virtanen olisi käynyt Sipilällä kylässä jo sunnuntaina 11. kesäkuuta, jolloin puoluekokous oli yhä kesken. Jussi Halla-aho oli valittu lauantaina perussuomalaisten uudeksi puheenjohtajaksi. Nyt lehdet kertoivat hallituslähteisiin vedoten, että Virtanen luikahti pääministerin virka-asunnolta Kesärannasta salaa, koska Kesärannan portin edessä pelättiin olevan mediaa.

U.S. could become the only country on Earth not in the Paris climate agreement. Badinerie - Johann Sebastian Bach. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings: Sleep Is Our Competition. Netflix has become synonymous with binge-watching—the act of roaring through a full season of Stranger Things with Seamless as your copilot. The advent of this routine has undoubtedly changed our consumption habits, with 70% of Americans (and 90% of millennials) indulging in an average of five episodes per sitting, according to a Deloitte survey.

“Binge-watching is great because it puts you in control,” said Neftlix CEO and cofounder Reed Hastings at Summit LA on Friday. “You have complete flexibility.” In fact, Netflix now goes beyond”binge-watching” and induced something called “binge-racing,” in which fans complete a new series on the very same day it’s released. The number of viewers pulling off that ambitious feat actually increased more than 20 times in the last three years–to 8.4 million Netflix members. The company even referred to it as a “sport” in a recent press release. And it’s not just the United States. Homepage - Media Landscapes. Biker Flipping Off Trump Motorcade Gets Fired. Last week, Juli Briskman achieved peak virality after a White House photographer snapped a picture of her biking alongside the presidential motorcade in Virginia.

Well, a picture of her biking and also flipping off said motorcade. It’s a striking image. So striking, in fact, that Briskman was fired for it. After seeing the photo, Briskman’s employer, government contractor Akima LLC, terminated her, Huffington Post reports. Her bosses said that by using the image as her profile picture on Facebook and Twitter, she had violated the company’s social-media policies. “They said, ‘We’re separating from you,’” Briskman told HuffPo. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. As for life after becoming a meme, Briskman says she’s “doing better than ever.” Can Germany Fix Facebook? Members of The Masthead got an advance copy of this article. Want to get exclusive insights and support a sustainable future for journalism? Join now. In early October, a musical titled Facebook—Terms and Conditions toured in Germany. It’s an intentionally outlandish love story about an aspiring novelist who pens a fictional work about an imaginary social network.

The novel just happens to be titled Facebook—Terms and Conditions. The show’s creators, the satirist Peer Gahmert and the choreographer Tim Gerhards, usually collaborate on more-traditional theater projects “that no one visits and which no one wants to see,” as Gahmert put it in a recent interview. “Since no one has ever read these terms before clicking ‘Create Account,’ we thought it would be a good idea to put them into something as enjoyable and easy to swallow as a musical,” Gahmert told me.

To say that Facebook has an image problem in Germany, where it has 28 million users, is a staggering understatement. Kremlin Cash Behind Billionaire’s Twitter and Facebook Investments.

He should have followed Jupiter, as Emmanuel Macron is called, when the newly elected French president formed his government over the summer, gave up the family dog, and officially adopted a rescue animal from a local pound, First Dog Nemo, a Labrador Griffin cross.

Of course, things did not go too well at the Elysée Palace last week, when Nemo found a (gilded) fireplace to pee on, upending a ministerial meeting. But Jupiter made effective media use of the animal against the backdrop of national strikes opposing the labor reforms across France that week, winning at least one news cycle by demonstrating his humor, humanity, and compassion with a (disobedient) companion species.

Why the dog? Figure of loyalty across traditions of premodern Europe and Asia, the dog symbolizes the loyalty and obedience of “subjects” and, in the modern age, the unconditional love of the citizen? Perhaps. Sweden and Denmark See Uptick in New Series at HBO, Netflix and More – Variety. A traditionally fertile ground for storytellers, Scandinavia’s TV drama landscape has grown tremendously in the past few years, bolstered by the boom of global and local streaming, pay-TV services such as Netflix, HBO, CMore and Viaplay across the Nordics. After spending several years focusing on acquisitions and co-productions, all these new players have started diving into original commissions.

Both in terms of volume and quality, streaming services have been driving the upward trend. “In Sweden alone, the number of series being produced every year has nearly tripled, and the number of potential buyers for drama, crime or comedy series has gone up from one or two to seven or eight,” says Pontus Edgren, the managing director and co-owner of FLX, the Swedish outfit that is producing “Quicksand,” Netflix’s first Swedish-language original. Since launching in Scandinavia in 2012, Netflix has gradually ramped up its investment in local drama.

How Does Theory of Change Work? | Theory of Change Community. Identifying long-term goalsBackwards mapping and connecting the preconditions or requirements necessary to achieve that goal and explaining why these preconditions are necessary and sufficient.Identifying your basic assumptions about the context.Identifying the interventions that your initiative will perform to create your desired change.Developing indicators to measure your outcomes to assess the performance of your initiative.Writing a narrative to explain the logic of your initiative. The TOC process hinges upon defining all of the necessary and sufficient conditions required to bring about a given long term outcome. TOC uses backwards mapping requiring planners to think in backwards steps from the long-term goal to the intermediate and then early-term changes that would be required to cause the desired change. This creates a set of connected outcomes known as a “pathway of change”.

Apple is one of the leading companies that is renowned for its unique products and brand. A short talk with an Apple user reveals there is an emotional relation between consumers and Apple products, including every “i” product created in the past two decades. Why are Apple products different from their competitors’ products? How does Apple manage to achieve innovation in its product families? Answering these questions provides interesting insight into Apple’s history and how it survived its most critical time between 1985 and 1997. When Steve Jobs returned to Apple after being fired, the company share was only worth US $5 and its future was uncertain. Today, in 2016, Apple’s share price is around US $108 and the company achieved revenues of US $233.7 billion in 2015 with net income of US $53.39 billion.

The Hard Times at Apple The early days of Apple (which was cofounded by Steve Jobs on 1976) are characterized by its first personal computer that was delivered with Apple OS. Better policing: NYCLU and IDEO ask New York residents for their views. Should records of police misconduct be made public? Should the police have to obtain a warrant to read your emails? And if police stop you, should they have to tell you why? These are some of the questions being asked by Listening NYC – a new campaign from the New York Civil Liberties Union that invites New Yorkers to have their say on police conduct. The campaign was created in partnership with design consultancy IDEO. NYCLU says it aims to “amplify ongoing conversations around safer and fairer policing practices” in the city and “drive action for the policing New Yorkers want”. Pop-up events will see ‘listening booths’ installed in five New York boroughs this week. People can also listen to audio stories from New Yorkers recounting their experiences of policing, including NYPD officer Felicia Whitely who filed a lawsuit challenging the force’s arrest and summons quotas along with 11 other minority officers.

“That’s where Listening NYC comes in. The Case of Net Neutrality in the US and in the EU – The CMDS Blog – Medium. What would you say if your favorite streaming site was slowed down or blocked by your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? The idea that this should not happen is called Net Neutrality. The story of Net Neutrality began in the U.S. where Comcast, one of the major ISPs, was accused of delaying Internet traffic in order to prevent access to Pirate Bay, a peer-to-peer site and a competitor of Comcast’s own movie download service, in 2007. In addition, mobile network operators such as Vodafone, Orange and now T-Mobile, have also acted in a similar manner, blocking Skype from their network because Skype used it to provide a cheaper option to the subscribers of the mobile network operators for making phone calls. The concept behind the FCC classification is based on the idea that lighter regulation would help the development of cable services.

The end of the non-discrimination regulation permitted ISPs to discriminate the speed of data traffic based on content.
