Instagram has new rules for removing accounts

first_imgInstagram said it’ll notify users if their account is at risk of being removed along with a way to appeal the company’s decision. Users will be able to appeal if their content was taken down for violating Instagram’s rules against nudity and pornography, bullying and harassment, hate speech, drug sales, and counter-terrorism. Instagram said in the coming months it’ll expand appeals. It’s also giving users a way to submit appeals directly within the photo sharing app. Currently, users have to go through the site’s help center.The company will delete accounts right away if they violate the company’s drug sales or sexual solicitation policies.

James Martin/CNET Instagram said Thursday it’s rolling out changes to how it decides what accounts to take down, a sign that the photo sharing site is getting tougher about removing offensive content that violates its rules.The Facebook-owned company will start removing accounts that rack up a number of violations within a window of time.

The company has also come under fire for not doing enough to combat bullying or shielding teenagers from images of self-harm. At the same time, Instagram and parent company Facebook continue to face allegations that it’s suppressing conservative voices.

Will MS Dhoni return to lead CSK next year Captain makes huge

first_imgChennai Super Kings needed 150 to clinch their fourth IPL title and when Shane Watson, who was woefully out of form the entire tournament, started humming along, they were always going to be the favourites. However, despite the meltdown in the middle-order and despite, the slightly controversial run-out of MS Dhoni, the defending champions still needed 9 runs off the final over and Rohit Sharma threw the ball to Lasith Malinga.It was a brilliant over by the veteran, Yorkers, slower balls, and keeping his calm – he gave away only seven runs as Mumbai Indians went all the way to bag their fourth IPL crown. Epic scenes followed and MS Dhoni conceded after the match that it was not perfect tournament for his side, but his bowlers kept getting the job done.’The middle order wasn’t great’ MS Dhoni leads his sideIPL Twitter”As a team we had a good season. But we need to go back and reflect on how we reached the finals. It’s not one of those years where we played really great cricket to reach here. The middle order wasn’t great, and today it was very funny as to how both teams were only passing on the trophy from one team to the other,” the skipper said after the match.Speaking on the final, Dhoni believed that both sides made a lot of mistakes and in the end, the side which made fewer mistakes walked away with the match. He also said that they need to rethink few things, but not the focus will shift to the World Cup. File photo of former CSK captain MS DhoniIANS”Both teams made a lot of mistakes, the team that made one lesser mistake won. I think the bowlers did really well for us, even today it was definitely more than a 150 wicket. They kept performing and kept getting wickets whenever needed,” he further added.With MS Dhoni, there are always whispers about his own cricketing career and whether or not, he will continue playing after the World Cup. The skipper said that hopefully, he is back next season, a statement which drew raucous applause.”We have to go to our drawing board, and there is no real time for that now. We need to go into the World Cup and after that we need to see the gaps that we can fill. Nothing against the bowlers, it’s the batsmen who need to step up. [Will he be there in the next season?] Hopefully yes,” Dhoni said.last_img read more

First Lady Shows Baltimore Why So Many Dems Want Her on the

first_imgGet-out-the-vote rally for gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown with Elijah Cummings.First lady Michelle Obama was the show at a get-out-the-vote rally for gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown on Election Day eve in Baltimore.  Brown promised to be a partner to the city, then let Obama take over the stage to what was, hands down, the evening’s most deafening roar.U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings opened the event, describing Obama as someone who “speaks truth to power.” He then described what he felt this election was about, making an implicit contrast between Democrats and Republicans.“Today, I’m not so much concentrating on who to fight against, I’m concentrating on what we’re fighting for,” said the Baltimore representative, who included education, affordable health care, and seeing children do better in life than their parents among those issues.Every one of the event’s 10 speakers emphasized the importance of getting to the polls.Get-out-the-vote rally for gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown with Baltimore City Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.“No one can speak for you,” said Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.  “You have to stand up and have your voices heard.  I can’t tell you how many people in the Republican Party are counting on us to forget that tomorrow’s election day.”Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown would later set the table for Obama, feigning no pretense that the rally might actually be about him, but briefly speaking about the sort of governor he would be for the city hosting the rally.“I’m running for governor because I know that Baltimore City needs a partner in Annapolis, and I’m going to be that partner,” said Brown.Stump necessities out of the way, Brown introduced Obama, who was greeted by the evening’s loudest cheers, sustained for 23 seconds (if that does not sound like much, try screaming for that long). The first lady cited a number of issues at stake in this election such as schools, wages, equal pay for equal work—stock democratic talking points broadly applicable to just about any locality in the country.Get-out-the-vote rally for gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown with First Lady Michelle Obama.But Obama would make the most substantive point of the evening—and the one most relevant to Maryland’s current gubernatorial contest—when she asked the crowd to think back to Brown’s first race for Lt. Gov. in 2006.“Take this in,” said Obama, “because this is important.  The outcome of that election was decided by about 60,000 votes. . . . And while that may sound like a lot, when you break that number down, that’s just 30 votes per precinct. . . . So if there is anyone in the state who thinks their vote doesn’t matter, if anyone is thinking of sitting this election out, I just want you to think of those margins.”The first lady then told the sort of story that is hardly uncommon in a place like Baltimore City, of a young woman whose father was murdered when she was still an infant, and whose family struggled with homelessness, yet who managed to graduate high school with a 4.0 GPA and received a full scholarship to Georgetown.“These kids have every reason to give up,” said Obama, “but they don’t because they are so hungry to succeed, they are so desperate to lift themselves up.  See and that’s why, me and Barack, we do what we do every day, because those kids never give up and neither can we.  So let me tell you something Maryland, Baltimore we need to be energized for them.”ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more

This particular sale is hard to beat. An entry-level version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro is going for $1550, or $250 off the retail price. This Space Gray edition packs an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD (The silver version with the same specs costs $1,649). Need more storage? You can upgrade to a 512GB SSD for $1,749 ($200 off).

A 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with a Core i9 CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and Radeon 560X GPU is $3,099, or $400 off, while another model with a Core i7 CPU, 32GB of RAM, a 2TB SSD and Radeon 560X GPU costs $3,599 ($600 off).

TAM Airlines first Airbus A350 XWB lands in Brazil

first_imgTAM’s A350 XWB touches Brazilian soil for the first time, in Belo Horizonte/Confins Credit: Lucas Ulhôa – CNF ao vivoTAM Airlines’ first Airbus A350 XWB lands in BrazilThe first A350 XWB in the Americas, owned by TAM Airlines, landed in Brazil in the early hours last Friday 18 December. The aircraft left the headquarters of Airbus in Toulouse, France on 17 December and flew directly to Belo Horizonte/Confins in Brazil to obtain its Brazilian registration.The inaugural commercial flight of the A350 XWB, tail number PR-XTA, is scheduled for January, 2016, from São Paulo/Guarulhos to Manaus, Amazonas. The inaugural flight will allow different areas of the company, particularly operations, to gain familiarity with the new model, which is part of the latest generation of long-haul aircraft. In March, the A350 XWB will begin operating international services from São Paulo/Guarulhos to Miami, USA. In April, the aircraft will begin flying from São Paulo/Guarulhos to Madrid, Spain and, still in the second half of the year, from São Paulo/Guarulhos to Orlando, USA.“We are very happy to celebrate receiving the first A350 XWB in the Americas. We are pioneers in bringing this aircraft to the region, and its arrival in the Americas reinforces our constant commitment to maintaining one of the youngest and most innovative fleets in the world. We want to offer our passengers even greater comfort, with aircraft equipped with the most modern aviation technology, that are more efficient and produce lower environmental impact,” said Claudia Sender, CEO of TAM S.A. TAM’s A350 XWB touches Brazilian soil for the first time, in Belo Horizonte/ConfinsCredit: Lucas Ulhôa – CNF ao vivoTAM, a member of LATAM Airlines Group, is the fourth airline in the world to receive and operate the Airbus A350 XWB. The company has ordered 27 aircraft of this model, through an investment of US$7 billion (according to the list price of aircraft), which are scheduled to be delivered through 2021. In 2016, the company plans to receive six A350 XWBs. In September of this year, LATAM Airlines Group changed its order for six of the A350-900s for six A350-1000s due to its greater capacity to carry passengers.“We always pay close attention to the scenario and adjust our fleet renewal plan to obtain optimum aircraft allocation in each market. The A350 XWB joins our fleet with the mission of operating as one of the main aircraft on long-haul flights to the United States and Europe. The combination of its wider fuselage, advanced composite material and unique cabin provide an even more pleasant travel experience and more efficient operations,” said José Zaidan Maluf, vice-president of Fleet and Engines at LATAM Airlines Group.Pioneers Introducing an aircraft like the A350 XWB to the aviation market in the Americas and, as a result, Brazil, posed additional challenges for TAM. “Daring is in our DNA. Launching the A350 XWB in Brazil demanded work from a multidisciplinary team dedicated exclusively to this project, in addition to support from several other areas that prepared to operate this innovative aircraft. We thank TAM and LATAM Airlines Group employees for all of their hard work, as well as the companies and authorities involved in this project,” said Ruy Amparo, vice-president of Operations and Maintenance at TAM.The A350 XWB features the latest innovations in aerodynamics, design and cutting-edge technology, leading to 25 per cent lower operating costs (including fuel consumption). The aircraft is produced 70 per cent from composite material, titanium and aluminum alloys, which makes it not only lighter, but also more efficient and resistant to corrosion and fatigue. Its wider body ensures a more comfortable travel experience. TAM’s new aircraft model is configured to serve different passenger profiles, with 348 seats, 318 in Economy Class and 30 full flat seats in Premium Business class.The A350 XWB will offer passengers an even more relaxing flight experience, while reducing the sensation of fatigue, even after long journeys. The air inside the cabin is fully renewed every two or three minutes and kept at an ideal temperature. Innovative lighting concepts help reduce jet lag, notably through the overall sensation of quality and space of the cabin. Passengers will enjoy a better field of view with panoramic windows and roomier overhead compartments to store their carry-on luggage. The Airbus A350 XWB also produces up to 25 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions compared to other aircraft used in long-haul operations.The fourth A350 XWB aircraft, planned for delivery in June of next year, will arrive with an additional feature: it will come with a third service class, Economy Plus, offering more legroom between seats. The aircraft will offer 30 seats in Premium Business class, 63 in Economy Plus and 246 in Economy Class. TAM A350xwblearn more hereSource = TAM Airlineslast_img read more
