As Facebook faces fire heat turns up on No 2 Sandberg

first_imgNEW YORK — For the past decade, Sheryl Sandberg has been the poised, reliable second-in-command to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, helping steer Facebook’s rapid growth around the world, while also cultivating her brand in ways that hint at aspirations well beyond the social network.But with growing criticism over the company’s practices, or lack of oversight, her carefully cultivated brand as an eloquent feminist leader is showing cracks. Questions these days aren’t so much about whether she’ll run for the Senate or even president, but whether she ought to keep her job at Facebook. Though the chances of an ouster are slim, the fact that it has even come up shows the extent of Facebook’s — and Sandberg’s — troubles.“Her brand was being manicured with the same resources and care as the gardens of Tokyo,” said Scott Galloway, a New York University marketing professor. “And unfortunately a hurricane has come through the garden.”Facebook has been dealing with hurricanes for the past two years : fake news, elections interference, hate speech, a privacy scandal, the list goes on. The company’s response — namely, Zuckerberg’s and Sandberg’s — has been slow at best, misleading and obfuscating at worst, as The New York Times reported last week. That report, and one from The Wall Street Journal , underscored Sandberg’s influence at the company, even as Zuckerberg has borne much of the criticism and anger.As chief operating officer, Sandberg is in charge of Facebook’s business dealings, including the ads that make up the bulk of the company’s revenue. She steered Facebook from a rising tech startup into a viable global business expected to reap $55 billion in revenue this year. The company is second only to Google in digital advertising.But she’s also gotten the blame when things go wrong, including Facebook’s failure to spot Russian attempts to influence U.S. elections by buying U.S. political ads — in rubles. Though Sandberg has denied knowing that Facebook hired an opposition research firm to discredit activists, she created a permissive environment through what the Times called an “aggressive lobbying campaign” against critics. Facebook fired the firm, Definers, after the Times report came out.Facebook declined to comment on Sandberg or make her available for an interview. A representative instead pointed to Zuckerberg’s remarks that overall, “Sheryl is doing great work for the company. She’s been a very important partner to me and continues to be, and will continue to be. She’s leading a lot of the efforts to improve our systems in these areas.”Sandberg, 49, who was hired away from Google in 2008, has been a crucial “heat shield” for Zuckerberg, as Galloway put it, as lawmakers and the public crank up criticism of the 34-year-old founder. In September, Facebook sent Sandberg to testify before the Senate intelligence committee, eliciting a warmer response than her boss did three months before.Sandberg, former chief of staff for treasury secretary Larry Summers, appears more comfortable in Washington meeting rooms than Zuckerberg, who can seem robotic. Her profile is high enough that lawmakers don’t feel stilted when she shows up. She’s written (with help) two books, including 2013’s “Lean In” about women and leadership. Her second book, “Plan B,” is about dealing with loss and grief after her husband died unexpectedly. She was the lone chief operating officer among a who’s who of tech CEOs — including Apple’s Tim Cook and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos — to meet with Donald Trump a month after his election.“It’s both who she is and how bereft Silicon Valley is of strong, powerful female voices,” crisis management expert Richard Levick said. “She has positioned herself as one of those strong voices with ‘Lean In.’”But her high profile also makes her more susceptible to criticism.The chorus for Sandberg to leave is getting louder. CNBC commentator Jim Cramer predicted Monday that Facebook’s stock would rise if Sandberg leaves or gets fired. NYU’s Galloway believes both Sandberg and Zuckerberg should be fired for allowing Facebook to turn into an entity that harms democracy around the world.“Every day executives are fired for a fraction of infractions these two have committed,” he said.Besides elections interference, Zuckerberg and Sandberg have been criticized for their slow response to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which the data-mining firm accessed millions of users’ private information without their permission. The pair were silent for days after the news came out. According to the Journal, Zuckerberg told Sandberg this spring that he blamed her and her teams for the “public fallout” over Cambridge Analytica. Citing unnamed sources, the newspaper said Sandberg at one point wondered if she should be worried about her job (though that appears to no longer be the case, based on Zuckerberg’s public support).Because of the way Facebook is set up, firing Zuckerberg would be all but impossible. He controls the majority of the company’s voting stock, serves as its chairman and has — at least publicly — the support of its board of directors. Essentially, he’d have to fire himself.Firing Sandberg would be the next logical option to hold a high-level executive accountable, but Galloway also doesn’t see this happening. For one thing, he said, it would look bad to fire one of the only top female executives in an industry where women “face inordinately high obstacles to get to leadership positions.”Beyond that, Sandberg has also been a positive force on Facebook. She was hired to be the “adult” in the room and has filled that role well. She moves comfortably outside tech circles and in public speaking, countering Zuckerberg’s shortcomings in that area.If anything, Sandberg’s departure from Facebook would likely be on her own terms. While Zuckerberg has spent all of his adult life at Facebook, Sandberg had a career before Facebook and even tech, so it is plausible that she would have a life after Facebook, perhaps back in politics.But before she can consider running for office, she’ll probably have to address election manipulation and Facebook’s other troubles.Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Presslast_img read more

BCs tax on new natural gas investments among highest in North America

first_imgAccording to the study that even with Ottawa’s tax changes, B.C. still has the second-highest effective tax rate on new investments in the natural gas sector. The study’s calculations include everything from corporate income taxes to royalty payments to provincial sales taxes if they apply.“This is a comprehensive assessment of the tax rate that applies to businesses wishing to invest in the oil or natural gas sectors,” said Philip Bazel, associate at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy and study co-author.B.C.’s tax rate on new natural gas investments in 2018 was 31.9 percent—behind only Saskatchewan (36.6) in Canada, and fifth-highest among all major energy-producing jurisdictions in North America. B.C.’s tax rate on new natural gas investments is nearly five percentage points higher than the Canadian average (27 percent) according to the study.“If the B.C. government really wants to grow and develop the province’s natural gas sector, policymakers should consider tax reforms to incentive new investments in the industry,” Mintz said. VANCOUVER, B.C. – A new study by the Fraser Institute finds B.C. has one of the highest tax rates on new investments in the natural gas sector among all major energy-producing jurisdictions in North America, which is harming the province’s competitiveness.“Developing B.C.’s natural gas resources has been a priority for successive provincial governments, and yet its tax rate on new natural gas investments is highly uncompetitive with neighbouring and competing jurisdictions,” said Jack Mintz, President’s Fellow at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy.The federal government last year introduced a series of temporary measures designed to incentivize new investment. In response to recent tax changes in the U.S., which eroded Canada’s previous corporate and investment tax advantage over American states, shared the studylast_img read more

Canadian Oil Sands Q2 profits miss estimates CEO Marcel Coutu to retire

CALGARY — Canadian Oil Sands Ltd., the largest partner in the massive Syncrude Canada Ltd. oilsands mine, posted second-quarter earnings Tuesday that missed analyst expectations, and announced the retirement of its CEO.Profits during the quarter were $219 million, or 45 cents per share — well short of the 53 cents per share analysts had on average been expecting, according to data compiled by Thomson Reuters.But the profits were more than double the $101 million, or 21 cents per share, the Calgary-based company booked during the same period a year earlier.Sales were $921 million, up from $740 million.CEO Marcel Coutu — who is set to retire as of January 1, 2014 — attributed the higher earnings to better-than-expected oil prices and a favourable exchange rate.Also Tuesday, Canadian Oil Sands reduced its targeted 2013 production range for the second time this year.Earlier this year, it had lowered its target by five per cent to between 100 and 110 million barrels. And now, it said it is expecting production to range between 100 and 104 million barrels.Production at Syncrude averaged 273,100 barrels per day during the quarter, an improvement from 238,500 barrels per day a year earlier.Coutu has been at the helm of Syncrude since August 2001, and over his tenure grew the company from a $2-billion income trust to a corporation with a stock market value of $10 billion“I have been fortunate and proud to lead COS through the economic and commodity cycles of the past decade,” Coutu said in a release.“With this solid asset base, a talented management team and the approaching completion of Syncrude’s major sustaining projects, I believe COS is well positioned for continued success. It’s therefore a good time for me to pass the leadership of this great company on to a successor.”The company’s board has begun a search for Coutu’s successor. Coutu has agreed to stay on in a consulting role for a year after his retirement to ensure the transition goes smoothly.Canadian Oil Sands is best known for its 37 per cent stake in the large Syncrude mine north of Fort McMurray, Alta. It’s one of the oldest and largest projects of its kind.The other owners of Syncrude include Imperial Oil Ltd. (TSX:IMO), Suncor Energy Inc. (TSX:SU), Chinese firms Sinopec and CNOOC, Mocal Energy and MurphyOil.Bitumen from Syncrude is upgraded into a more valuable product called synthetic crude oil, which refineries can more easily handle. read more

CBK hits out at parliament

Kumaratunga noted that a politician involved in corruption on crime will never be a good politician. “If someone ties another person to a tree and breaks his bones that person is not a good person. People like that cannot do clean politics or represent their people in their areas,” she said.The former President said that when one looks at parliament you will find that most of the parliamentarians have not entered University or have degrees. “I’m not talking about one or two people. I’m talking about the 225 people who represent us in parliament as well as the 400 or 500 odd who represent us in provincial councils and the 3000 odd who represent us at village level. When you look at them you find that you cannot differentiate the politician from that individual,” she said at an event in Kandy. Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga has slammed parliament and other provincial and local council politicians in the country saying most of them are murderers, thieves and uneducated.She says any politician or individual has a right to point out wrongs or mistakes being made by the country’s rulers an they should not bow down to them and ignore those mistakes. “Parliament is being used as a business to draw money from the people,” Kumaratunga said in her hard hitting speech.She said that parliamentarians must have a clear vision for the country and work towards achieving that goal.The former President says, on her part, she can hold her head up high and walk on the street today as she knows she has not stolen anyone’s money or done any wrong to anyone. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Four judges elected to International Court of Justice

The General Assembly and Security Council on Thursday elected four judges from an initial pool of six candidates to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. After five rounds of simultaneous voting that ran into the early evening, the Assembly and the Council – which met independently of each other – re-elected three current judges, Ronny Abraham (France) and Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf (Somalia), and Antônio Augusto Cançado Trindade (Brazil), while also choosing one new justice, Nawaf Salam (Lebanon).All four were elected in the fifth round of voting. They were elected to nine-year terms, starting on 6 February next year. The Assembly and the Council will meet independently again Monday, 13 November, to elect a fifth judge to a seat on the ICJ. The Court is composed of 15 judges, who are elected by an absolute majority in both the General Assembly (97 votes) and Security Council (8 votes). Five seats come up for election every three years. There is no bar on consecutive terms. Judges are chosen on the basis of their qualifications, not their nationality, but no two judges can be from the same country. Effort is also taken to ensure that the principal legal systems of the world are reflected in the composition of the court. There are three female judges – Xue Hanqin (China), Joan E. Donoghue (United States), Julia Sebutinde (Uganda) – out of a total of 15 seated on the Court.Established in 1945, and based in The Hague in the Netherlands, the ICJ – informally known as the ‘World Court’ – settles legal disputes between States and gives advisory opinions on legal questions that have been referred to it by other authorized UN organs. The election of the first members of the World Court took place on 6 February 1946, at the first session of the UN General Assembly and Security Council.

Im grateful to be here Florida shooting survivor thanks people who saved

first_imgWe see these type of injuries almost every other day… because of our experience we did an outstanding job… we’re here to celebrate a successful recovery.School reopensStudents and teachers have returned to a Florida school for the first time since 17 people were shot dead there, consoling each other even as they called for swift action to address gun violence.“Imagine [being] in a plane crash and then having to get on the same plane every day and fly somewhere else – it’s never going to be the same,” David Hogg, a survivor of the 14 February shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, told ABC television’s This Week.The school held a voluntary “orientation” yesterday, with teachers and staff due back starting today and classes resuming on Wednesday – a prospect described as “daunting” and “scary”, but which is also a step for survivors to move forward after the attack.One teacher who had already been back told NPR radio that the shock of returning to a classroom left exactly as it had been during the carnage – notebooks still on desks, the calendar still set to 14 February – made her so physically ill she had to leave.But Cameron Kasky, a student who survived the slaughter, tweeted a picture of people on campus, saying: “It is GOOD TO BE HOME.”“I have all my friends here with me and it just makes me feel like I’m not alone in this situation,” student Michelle Dittmeier, who attended the orientation, told ABC.Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School also received support from alumni, with previous graduating classes making banners to decorate the school, WSVN TV news reported. Students and teachers return to the school for the first time since the shooting Source: David Santiago via APIn nearby Fort Lauderdale last night, religious leaders gathered for an interfaith vigil that left 17 chairs empty in memory of the victims, WSVN reported, after protesters gathered outside the Kalashnikov USA gun manufacturer in neighbouring Pompano Beach.“Gun reform now!” said one of the protesters’ signs, while another called for the “death factory” to be shut.With ardent demands by students like Hogg for action, President Donald Trump has said he is open to raising the minimum age for gun purchases and to banning so-called bump stocks, which can effectively convert semi-automatic weapons into automatic firearms, but which were not used in the Parkland killings.Speaking at the Governors’ Ball ahead of meetings with the top officials from all 50 states today, Trump said school safety is a top priority: “I think we’ll make that first on our list.”‘Red flag’ lawA new CNN poll, conducted a week after the Florida shooting, shows surging public support for stricter gun laws – surpassing levels seen even after other horrific shootings in recent years – and for a ban on powerful semi-automatic weapons like the AR-15 used in Parkland.Overall, 70% of those surveyed said they supported stricter gun laws, up from 52% in October, and 57% favoured a ban on semi-automatic arms, an increase from 49%.The United States has more than 30,000 gun-related deaths annually.Florida Governor Rick Scott has laid out a plan to station a police officer at every public school in the state, raise the legal age for gun purchases from 18 to 21 and pass a “red flag” law for authorities to more easily remove guns from the mentally ill or people with violent histories.The age change and “red flag” law are staunchly opposed by the influential National Rifle Association, of which Scott is a member.Scott, who holds the NRA’s highest rating of A+, noted on Fox News Sunday that “there will be some that disagree. But… I want my state to be safe”.Dana Loesch, an NRA spokeswoman, told ABC that her organisation opposed most of the proposed gun measures.Instead, she placed blame on politicians, for their inaction, and on law enforcement – specifically the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, which she said had ample warning of the violent tendencies of Nikolas Cruz, aged 19, who is charged in the killings.She accused the sheriff’s office of “abdication of duty” for not arresting Cruz sooner. Students lay flowers and cards in memory of the victims of the shooting Source: David Santiago via AP‘A terrible idea’In an often-contentious interview on CNN, Sheriff Scott Israel strongly defended his officers’ work.Of the 23 calls to his department about Cruz’s erratic or threatening behaviour, nearly all were minor and had been handled appropriately, and a few others were being investigated, he said.Trump has also proposed arming some teachers, a step many educators passionately oppose.Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, told C-Span in an interview that “it’s a terrible idea, period, full stop”.Children, parents and teachers, she said, “want schools to be safe sanctuaries for teaching and learning, not armed fortresses”.Delaney Tarr, another young survivor of the Florida shooting, said she was girding herself as best she could to return to school.“It’s daunting… [and] scary because I don’t know if I’m going to be safe there,” she told Fox.“But I know that I have to.”- © AFP 2018, first published at 8am.

The Secret History of GI Joe and Transformers

first_imgStay on target Toy Tuesday: Yo! It’s The Best ‘G.I. Joe’ ToysScarlett’s Strike Force Cancelled: Now What? G.I. Joe and Transformers have been two of Hasbro’s biggest names, and they have long and storied histories with absurd amounts of lore in toy, comic, and cartoon form. Their worlds have collided in IDW’s newly unified… well, let’s call it the Hasbroverse (My Little Pony isn’t part of the Joes’ and Transformers’ lives yet, but IDW has books of all three, so it’s only a matter of time until Rarity gives Snake Eyes a makeover).We’re going to look at the many times in the past the two franchises have collided. And before we do that, here’s a very quick primer. Like many dives into geeky esoterica, the relevant fan wikis were very helpful in looking up references instead of digging into hundreds of comic book issues, so thanks to the dedicated fans at TFWiki and the G.I. Joe Wikia!G.I. Joe: A Real American (International) Hero (Ninja)G.I. Joe is a toy line that originally debuted in 1964 with 12-inch action figures with “Kung Fu grip” (the hands were a softer material than the plastic of the bodies so they could hold weapons), but it rose to modern pop culture prominence in 1982 with G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, a line of 3 3/4-inch action figures paired with a Marvel comic book of the same name written by Larry Hama, who built the world of Duke, Cobra Commander, and Snake Eyes that we know and love. The comic would be adapted into a wildly popular cartoon, and would also run for over 150 issues under Marvel. The latter years of the book were very ninja-heavy. Seriously, everyone turned into a ninja or turned out to have been a ninja the entire time.G.I. Joe is an elite unit of American, NATO allies, and/or international military specialists that serve as a counterterrorism force against threats the conventional military can’t address. Those threats are often made by Cobra, a global terrorist organization structurally inspired by Amway and founded by a used car salesman whose brother returned from Vietnam only to die in a car accident with Snake Eyes. Leading said salesman to hire a string of assassins culminating in Firefly, who went to Japan and killed Snakes Eyes’ and Storm Shadow’s sensei, which led to Storm Shadow eventually joining Cobra. That’s all in the Marvel comics. Also, his top scientist was an insane shirtless, suspenders-wearing dentist in a cape.Transformers: Truly a Super-God MasterforceTransformers is a toyline originally consisting of rebranded versions of Tomy Takara’s Diaclone and Microman toys, launched by Hasbro in 1984. Transformers since completely eclipsed Diaclone and Microman, partly because of the popularity of the Transformers cartoon, which launched alongside its own Marvel comic book. The premise of Transformers was developed by Marvel’s then-Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter and editor Dennis O’Neil The cartoon got multiple spin-offs and reimaginings, including Beast Wars, which was awesome, and Beast Machines, which was Transformers if the Autobots/Maximals were all giant hippies. Also, the cartoon continued in Japan as Transformers: The Headmasters and Transformers: Super-God Masterforce, which is the greatest name for anything ever.Transformers are a race of sentient, transforming cybernetic life forms from the planet Cybertron. Tens of millions of years ago, they split off into two warring factions, Autobots, and Decepticons. Despite the branding and imaging issues, the Decepticons became pretty popular. Cybertron was lost in the war, and an Ark filled with Autobots travels to Earth where it crashes in prehistoric times. They wake up in the near future of the 1980s, where they find some Decepticons, and they start fighting again because everyone needs energy in delicious cube form. Also, all Transformers were created along with Cybertron itself by the machine god Primus, presumably before his break-out album Sailing the Seas of Cheese. The Transformers were also created by the Quintessons, which were big angry floating alien heads.Now that you’re caught up, we can talk about how these worlds have crossed over repeatedly.Marvel ComicsIDW isn’t the first publisher to have both the Transformers and G.I. Joe licenses and decides to make them fight. Marvel did it 30 years ago in the G.I. Joe and the Transformers four issue mini-series. Autobots and G.I. Joe joined forces to stop the Decepticons and Cobra from getting control over a nuclear power station. It wasn’t the most interesting story, but it was the first appearance of the plane combined force Superion!Marvel had G.I. Joe and Transformers clash again in 1993 with G.I. Joe #138 through #142. Megatron was attracted to Cobra Commander’s Silent Castle base because he thought it was a Transformer because it’s a goofy mechanical castle that can transform. This arc marked the return of Transformers to comics in Transformers: Generation 2, which also marked Hasbro bringing the toys back in the 90s after not doing much with them for a few years.Cartoon SemicrossoversBlink and you’ll miss it, but Cobra Commander appeared in the Transformers cartoon’s third season episode “Only Human.” In the dark future of 2006, Cobra Commander dressed like Rorschach and went under the name “Old Snake.” He worked as a freelance terrorist, serving a crime boss who wanted Transformers technology. He was thwarted because even with decades of experience animated Cobra Commander isn’t nearly as competent as comic book Cobra Commander (not counting the deliciously brutal Cobra Commander in the Warren Ellis-written G.I. Joe: Resolute miniseries).It’s not spelled out, but the recurring character Marissa Faireborn in the Transformers cartoon is probably the daughter niece of Sgt. Flint and Lady Jaye. Flint’s name is Dashiell Faireborn, which explains why he asks people to call him Flint.If continuity isn’t weird enough, according to the G.I. Joe Wikia, Sci-Fi can be caught watching the Transformers cartoon on a TV in the second season episode “My Brother’s Keeper.”I’m Still in a Dreamwave, Snake Eyes EaterFor a short period in the early oughts, the Transformers comic book license was held by a small publisher called Dreamwave. Dreamwave published two crossover miniseries, Transformers/G.I. Joe and Transformers/G.I. Joe: Divided Front. Transformers/G.I. Joe was a really interesting concept that took place in its own continuity in the 1930s, where World War II became G.I. Joe and the Autobots versus Cobra and the Decepticons. Transformers/G.I. Joe: Divided Front would have taken place in the late 80s in the same continuity, but only one issue was published before Dreamwave went bankrupt. Also, wow, the TFWiki throws mad shade on Dreamwave and artist Pat Lee in particular.While Dreamwave had the Transformers license, Devil’s Due Publishing had G.I. Joe for most of the aughts. The Devil’s Due books continued where the Marvel G.I. Joe comics left off and were reconnected in 2010 by IDW, which also wanted to continue where the Marvel comics left off. And yet, none of the G.I. Joe comic continuities are remotely as confusing as Transformers‘ continuities. There are multiverses out there watched by ancient proto-Autobots like they’re channel surfing.Even the Toys are in on itHasbro itself isn’t above mixing G.I. Joe with Transformers, but it usually saves those toys for the die-hard fans. Most Hasbro crossover toys are convention-exclusive releases or reserved for members of collector clubs, like this two-pack of Soundwave as a H.I.S.S. tank and Powerglide as a Rattler (with both Cobra and Autobot decals, because he’s on a spy mission) with Scarlett and Zartan. Previous convention exclusive toys include Starscream as a Skystriker with Cobra Commander, Shockwave as another H.I.S.S. tank with Destroy and a Construction B.A.T., and Jetfire as a Skystriker and Hound as a V.A.M.P. with Ravage, Snake Eyes, Baroness, and a three 3/4-inch action figure version of Bludgeon.The exclusives for the G.I. Joe and Transformers Collector’s Clubs are even deeper cuts. We’re talking Old Snake and Dr. Biggles-Jones (from the second Marvel crossover) cuts. And Old Snake’s figure looks almost as cool as Destro’s leopard-print cowboy convention exclusive figure. Yes, that was a thing.The IDW Universe: OriginsIDW has been publishing Transformers comic books since 2005, and G.I. Joe books since 2010, and they’re pretty damn good. Transformers under IDW has gone pretty deep into the social and political origins of the war between Autobots and Decepticons and explored how Transformers from all sides dealt with the end of the war and actually trying to rebuild Cybertron.Transformers and G.I. Joe has had a few crossovers under IDW before the launch of Revolution and the Hasbroverse. In 2011, the Infestation event had zombies invading the Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Trek, and Ghostbusters universes. More notably, Transformers vs. G.I. Joe pitted human against Cybetronian in a two-year maxi-series that took place in its own continuity outside of IDW’s other books.Revolution: IDW Creates the HasbroverseIt’s comic book universe pseudo-reboot time, but you don’t have to groan because it’s actually going to make most of IDW’s books more cohesive. Instead of sitting in a bunch of disparate universes ready to be invaded by zombies, G.I. Joe and Transformers now live in the same comic book universe, along with Micronauts, Rom the Spaceknight, and M.A.S.K., which stands for Mobile Armored Strike Kommand and is one of the few examples of K replacing C at the start of a word not written by Ed Boon. Oh, and Action Man, which actually was the European name for G.I. Joe before it became its own franchise.Instead of a universe-resetting explosion, Revolution simply brings all the threads of the IDW’s Hasbro franchises together and establishes that they live in a shared universe and not different dimensions now. It’s the rare case of a retcon that builds continuity instead of undoes it. None of the IDW G.I. Joe or Transformers main series lore is undone, simply merged into one world where they can regularly interact.Revolution brings the world under attack by Dire Wraiths, long-time Transformers enemies with origins in the Marvel universe (they were originally Skrull offshoots). In fact, Revolution is somewhat similar to Marvel’s Secret Invasion event, but with giant robots fighting and way better villains involved.The aftermath of Revolution puts all of the pieces together, with G.I. Joe as the “Crown Jewel of the Hasbro Universe.” The Joes are largely the same in spirit, but now Scarlett is the leader, and ex-Decepticon Skywarp is a member. Skywarp was the teleporting taxi drivers of the Decepticons, but between being used only for transport and seeing the combiner technology Galvatron used as an affront to the ideals of Cybertronian purity, he quit. Now he’s the Vegeta of the Joes.We spoke with G.I. Joe writer Aubrey Sitterson about just what the new norm in IDW’s Hasbroverse is going to be. Come back tomorrow for an interview with the current master of the crossover!last_img read more

Randy Ortons RKO proves deadly for high school student perpetrator arrested

first_imgWikimedia Commons / Ed WebsterAn American high school student was arrested after he attempted to RKO, which is a famous wrestling move, his principal. The name of the said student is Gianny Sosa and he is a student based out of Florida. Sosa appeared before a Miami court earlier this week for attempting hit his principal with WWE wrestler Randy Orton’s signature finishing move, RKO. According to a report in Metro, the incident happened at Miami Southridge Senior High School and the principal of the school, Humberto Miret, was identified as the intended victim. A video on Twitter reveals the student attempting the finishing move on his teacher and before trying to do so, he called out the move saying “RKO”. But the teacher intercepted the move and did not allow his student to RKO him out of nowhere. The video also shows the student claiming that the teacher tried to hit him but now that he is recording, the teacher is backing off. The teacher, on his part, was asking the student to stop recording the video. Student records video after allegedly pulling wrestling ‘finishing move’ on his high school principal at Miami South Ridge Senior High School.

My brother is a nice guy and all he wanted was play around and make people feel happy about themselves,” brother Mike Sosa said. “My brother is not the type of guy who goes out like this and is not a thug on the streets. He grabs my brother in a headlock and punches him in the head,” added Mike Sosa. Gianny Sosa’s sister, Camila Sosa said, “This could not have been violent move. I mean he weighs 135 pounds and there is no way he could have done this sort of move you see on WWE.” Randy Orton.Wikimedia CommonsRKO is one of the most famous signature moves in WWE at the moment. Randy Orton made the move famous and whenever he dishes it out to his opponents, the crowd becomes delirious. The sheer visual spectacle of the move makes it extremely appealing. The move involves the attacker grabbing the intended victim around the neck in mid-air and driving him into the ring floor head first, while himself landing on his back. There have been various instances of Randy Orton pulling out the RKO from a seemingly improbable situation. There have been times he has applied the finishing move on wrestlers jumping towards him from the top rope and at other times, he has suddenly leapt up from the ground to hit his opponent with the deadly move. The move was perhaps named RKO as an acronym for Orton’s full name which is Randal Keith Orton.last_img read more

Mozilla drops meritocracy from its revised governance statement and leadership structure to

first_imgMozilla spoke out about using the word “meritocracy”, as a way to describe its governance and leadership structures, last week. Mozilla has decided to discontinue using the word “meritocracy” following the revised proposal last week. “We have been thinking about the words we use as important carriers of our intended culture and the culture we wish to see in the broader movements we participate in. We have, therefore, taken up a review of our language and practices”, writes Emma Irwin on the Mozilla diversity blog. The first line of Mozilla’s governance reads, “Mozilla is an open source project governed as a meritocracy.” Meritocracy refers to a structure governed by people selected according to merit. On the surface, this sounds ideal, but given its abused usage, it had become analogous to an insidious way of maintaining exclusivity to those with access and experience. Using the term “meritocracy” to refer to communities suffering from a “lack of diverse representation” and without “equal opportunity” seems biased thereby perpetuating a dominant monoculture. Emma states that about 20 years ago, “meritocracy” was the best practice among open source projects. However, now this concept has become more linked to hidden bias and outright abuse. This bias involves devaluing a person’s contributions based on certain aspects of their identity such as gender, race, etc. Many advocates for women and minorities in the tech world have spoken out about how the tech industry considers men to be better at their jobs than everyone else. They don’t take into account the fact that many men have had more opportunities to succeed than their minority and female counterparts. A general belief in the open source community is that those contributing the most, have the most merit and are most deserving. Those who contribute less are not as “meritorious”, ignoring the fact that they might have less access to opportunity, time, and money, preventing them from contributing freely. This is the reality of the open source “meritocracies”, and one of the driving factors behind less diverse culture among the open source community. As a result, Patrick Finch, former strategist, Mozilla, and Emma Irwin, Open Project & Communities Specialist, Mozilla, revised the proposal to better articulate the major principle behind Mozilla’s governance statement. The revised proposal states: Mozilla is an open source project. Our community is structured as a virtual organization. Authority is primarily distributed to both volunteer and employed community members as they show their ability through contributions to the project. The project also seeks to debias this system of distributing authority through active interventions that engage and encourage participation from diverse communities. Mitchell Baker, Mozilla’s co-founder, and chair accepted the revised proposal. She said: “The original meaning I took for meritocracy in open source meant empowering individuals, rather than managers, or manager’s managers or tenure-based authority. However, it’s now clear that so-called meritocracies have included effective forms of discrimination. I personally long for a word that conveys a person’s ability to demonstrate competence and expertise and commitment separate from the job title, or college degree, or management hierarchy, and to be evaluated fairly by one’s peers”. Mozilla is not the only one who has decided to step down from using meritocracy. GitHub’s CEO Chris Wanstrath literally removed the rug at Github’s San Francisco headquarters, back in 2014. The rug kept as a centerpiece at the office room was emblazoned with the phrase, “United Meritocracy of GitHub”. Another example of organizations taking a step to promote diversity is Python dumping the offensive ‘master’, ‘slave’ terms in its documentation. Also, in September, Linux dropped its meritocracy based Code of Conflict in favor of a new Code of Conduct just as Linus Torvalds took a break from Linux to work on his behavioral issues. This new Code of Conduct has been at the epicenter of a major culture clash within the Linux community of late. “I long for a word that makes it clear that each individual who shares our mission is welcome, and valued, and will get a fair deal at Mozilla – that they will be recognized and celebrated for their contributions without regard to other factors. Sadly, “meritocracy” is not the word it once was. The challenge is not to retain a word that has become tainted. The challenge is to build teams and culture and systems that are truly inclusive”, says Baker. People’s opinions about Mozilla’s decision are varied: “Well, meritocracy means we will try to select and give influence/recognition based on merit. When someone tries to push an idea like “let’s have more Asians” or “let’s have more men” in the project we can direct them to the very first statement where they see we do selection based on merit and not skin color, gender or sexual orientation. Any attempt to introduce gender/race/sexual orientation quotas will promptly be rejected on those basis. There is value in wording it like this beyond “let’s do good”, reads a comment by “bluecalm” on Hacker News. “The real issue here is that some people get really upset by the word “meritocracy”. Clearly, you have never dealt with a white man who is better off than certain women, or people from ethnic minorities, and thinks it’s because his being white/male makes him inherently better and invokes “meritocracy” all the freaking time. I have. And I’m a half-Asian male – I can’t imagine what it’s like to deal with that jerk if I were a woman or an ethnic minority he didn’t consider inherently intelligent. When the word “meritocracy” is used to structurally shut down debates of sexism and racism, it is no longer about meritocracy”, reads a comment by “vanderZwan”  on Hacker News. “How is this relevant? If someone is voicing dissent about a culture there’s a million barriers they can hide behind instead of facing the allegations (“we’re committed to working towards a more diverse and inclusive environment…”). Are we to cower away from any word that can be twisted to justify bad things as well as good things, for fear that people will abuse them? The word “meritocracy” doesn’t seem like a line of code specifying an objective action that is to be taken to solve a problem, it describes a vision of how someone would ideally like their company to operate. How about we just call out bad behavior when we see it and not let it pollute the vision? That’s what needs to happen, or we’ll be locked in this battle until one political group manages to suppress the others (that, by the way, seem to have the exact same end goals they do)”, reads a comment by “nyxxie” on Hacker News.

Koreas heritage offerings set for popularity

first_imgHistoric Yangdong Village A traditional dwelling Old Korea is on show in Gyeongju’s Yangdong Village and Andong’s Hahoe Village, stunning examples of preserved Joseon-era clan townships set in countryside that is simply beyond beautiful.Educated more on the Joseon Dynasty’s art rather than history, I was astonished at how each scene from both Hahoe and Yangdong still resembles the waterbrushed mountain crags, swirling ink rivers and neat little dwellings of a Joseon painting.The villages are composed, rather than built, my guide tells me, each dwelling and the village, as a whole, laid out according to the Confucian culture of the early Joseon Dynasty.According to UNESCO, who in August added the two villages to its world heritage list, both Yangdong and Hahoe are “an exceptional manifestation of the Joseon political and cultural regimes and the way they were shaped by Confucianism”.Houses of nobles are on higher ground and have tiled roofs (giwajip) while farmers’ houses are closer to the fields with thatched roofs (chogajip), my guide said and added that men always got the best views.Although as the villages are framed by forested mountains, scenes of flowing rivers and golden fields, I doubt there is a bad view from any aspect.In fact, visitors are encouraged to look out at the views from within the dwellings, the villages embodying a blend of manmade and natural, which, according to my guide is an important aspect of Korean architecture both past and present.Both villages are living, interactive museums, each housing a number of residents who not only tolerate the daily tourists to their homes, but welcome them with the traditional Korean greeting (phonetically: an-nyung-ha-se-yo).There’s a charm to blocked off entry ways and villagers picking up what visitors to the village have left behind and I hope that should the inevitable tourist numbers increase, this charm remains, that rather than dying with the current, admittedly older residents, these historical villages will continue to live via the travels of domestic and international visitors alike.For those wanting to extend their experience of the Joseon lifestyle, visitors can stay overnight in the villages, eating traditional Korean cuisine and participating in hundreds of years old activities.Both located in Korea’s south-east, Yangdong and Hahoe villages are easy to get to from both Seoul and Busan.
