Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Apparently we’ve been doing it all wrongFrom simplemost.comIt can be frustrating when your phone dies halfway through the day, but it turns out we may be thinking about charging all wrong.Most of us think we should just charge our phone when it is close to dead, but the opposite is actually true. Turns out, charging your battery in short spurts isn’t actually bad for your phone, so you might want to make a number of changes to how you typically charge your device.One battery company called Cadex has created the website Battery University, which helps explain how charging lithium-ion batteries works. The site details how batteries go through their own forms of “stress,” which can damage your battery’s longterm lifespan.Getty Images | Sean GallupHere are a few tips for salvaging the length of your battery life:1. Charge FrequentlyCharge your phone throughout the day whenever you can, instead of once at night.Adobe2. Don’t Keep It Too Low Or Too HighDon’t charge your phone to 100 percent, as a high voltage can stress the battery. According to Gizmodo, “Your battery will behave the best if you take it off the charge before it hits 100 percent.”Gizmodo also recommends you should never let your phone get to 0 percent (e.g. fully drain), though some experts say you should do this occasionally. Gizmodo says the sweet spot is to keep your phone at about 50 percent charge as much as you can.Flickr | William Hook3. Unplug It When It Hits 100 PercentDon’t keep your phone plugged in when it’s fully charged. This keeps the battery in a high-stress, high-tension state, which can wear it down.Adobe4. Keep It Cool (But Not Too Cool)Charge at a moderate temperature. Don’t let your battery get too hot or too cold.Disconnect your charger if it or your phone gets excessively warm. It can be damaging if a lithium-ion battery gets too warm. Luckily, your charger is designed to manage this for the most part, so you don’t have to worry too much about it.AdobeBonus Tip:  This charging advice applies to more than just your cell phone, too. Lithium-ion batteries are used in an array of products, including laptops, tablets, cordless power tools and even electric/hybrid vehicles (even the Mars Curiosity rover runs on lithium-ion batteries!), so be sure to take note and get a proper charge for all your “Li-ion” toys.Wondering how to supercharge your phone when you’ve only got five minutes to charge it?

Authorities refuse to free journalist on completion of sentence, bring new charges

first_img June 18, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities refuse to free journalist on completion of sentence, bring new charges News Reporters Without Borders is shocked to learn that the Syrian authorities did not free journalist Ali Al-Abdallah when he completed a 30-month jail sentence on 16 June, and are now holding him on new charges of “disseminating false information with the aim of harming the state” because of an article posted online at the end of last year in which he criticised the Islamic Republic of Iran’s religious system and Syria’s relations with Iran. “The decision to keep Abdallah in detention is very distressing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call for his immediate release and we urge the Syrian authorities to put a stop to their practice of arbitrary detention.” Arrested on 17 December 2007, Abdallah was sentenced to two and a half years in prison on 29 October 2008 along with 11 other signatories of the so-called Damascus Declaration, a call for a radical overhaul of relations with Lebanon. He was due to be released on 16 June. He and the other signatories were convicted of “disseminating false information with the aim of harming the state,” “membership of a secret organisation designed to destabilise the state” and “inciting ethnic and racial tension.” Another of the signatories, fellow-journalist Akram Al-Bounni, who was arrested on 12 December 2008, was released on completion of his sentence on 13 June (,29121.html). Abdallah should have been freed just as Bounni was, but the Syrian authorities clearly decided otherwise. The authorities have been cracking down harder on the media since the second half of 2009. Under prodding from the intelligence services, the information ministry has been interrogating and arresting human rights activists, lawyers and journalists. Many of the journalists have been questioned about articles that are said to constitute ‘”an attack on the nation” or “threat to state security.” Few have dared to talk about this, even anonymously. The office of the Syrian Centre for Media and Free Expression was closed on 13 September 2009 and placed under seal (,34458.html). According to the information available to Reporters Without Borders, at least five journalists and netizens are currently detained in Syria:- the journalist Fayez Sara, held since 3 January 2008- the cyber-dissident Firas Saad, held since 6 May 2008- the cyber-dissident Habib Saleh, held since 6 May 2008- the journalist Ali Al-Abdallah, held since 17 December 2007- the cyber-dissident Tarek Biassi, held since 7 July 2007 Syria was ranked 165th out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. It is on the Reporters Without Borders list of Internet Enemies and President Bashar Al-Assad is on the Reporters Without Borders of “Predators of Press Freedom.” News Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law SyriaMiddle East – North Africa March 8, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information to go further Organisation Follow the news on Syriacenter_img Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria March 12, 2021 Find out more News February 3, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en News Receive email alertslast_img read more

After being physically attacked on 17 June by police in Rahmanya, in the Delta region, he is now being prosecuted on the basis of allegations brought against him by the police. Murad is well known for covering the torture and sexual abuse of a detainee by a policeman in 2006.“We firmly condemn the use of violence against Murad,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is unacceptable that the police are persecuting him. The charges brought against him appear to be an act of revenge. The authorities must punish those responsible for these abuses against the press.”Murad, 28, was arrested in Rahmanya on 17 June while using his mobile phone to take photos of police beating peasants. The police had been called out by a landlord who was trying to force the peasants to sign leases.Murad said the police manhandled him and beat him after discovering who he was. He was held for two days and was then charged with assuming a false identity, assaulting the police, inciting violence and defamation. He faces between six months and three years in prison on the charges. Meanwhile, he has not been able to recover his mobile, SIM card or notes.Murad told Reporters Without Borders he is the victim of a police plot. He said the public prosecutor’s office charged him on the basis of false statements presented by Rahmanya’s police chief. He said he was astonished by the speed with which prosecutors took up the case. No action has been taken on the complaint which he filed against the police officers who beat him.Murad’s November 2006 coverage of the case a bus driver who was subjected to sexual abuse while in police custody had a big impact in Egypt.

Using deep learning to count albatrosses from space: Assessing results in light of ground truth uncertainty

first_imgMany wildlife species inhabit inaccessible environments, limiting researchers ability to conduct essential population surveys. Recently, very high resolution (sub-metre) satellite imagery has enabled remote monitoring of certain species directly from space; however, manual analysis of the imagery is time-consuming, expensive and subjective. State-of-the-art deep learning approaches can automate this process; however, often image datasets are small, and uncertainty in ground truth labels can affect supervised training schemes and the interpretation of errors. In this paper, we investigate these challenges by conducting both manual and automated counts of nesting Wandering Albatrosses on four separate islands, captured by the 31 cm resolution WorldView-3 sensor. We collect counts from six observers, and train a convolutional neural network (U-Net) using leave-one-island-out cross-validation and different combinations of ground truth labels. We show that (1) interobserver variation in manual counts is significant and differs between the four islands, (2) the small dataset can limit the networks ability to generalise to unseen imagery and (3) the choice of ground truth labels can have a significant impact on our assessment of network performance. Our final results show the network detects albatrosses as accurately as human observers for two of the islands, while in the other two misclassifications are largely caused by the presence of noise, cloud cover and habitat, which was not present in the training dataset. While the results show promise, we stress the importance of considering these factors for any study where data is limited and observer confidence is variable.last_img read more

Oxford Access schemes: are they working?

first_imgIn a report published by the government’s social mobility adviser on Monday, the number of working class entrants to prestigious universities is said to be dwindling. Interest about admissions to top universities is no new thing; even as early as 1852, the Royal Commissions listed access to students from disadvantaged backgrounds to Oxford and Cambridge as a key issue. Oxford is often cited as having one of the better funded access and outreach programmes in the UK, with time and resources dedicated to organising events in and outside of the city targeting students from state schools. In some respects, the outcomes appear very positive. There were over 1000 more applications from the maintained sector in 2012 than in 2006.Despite the rise in admissions from the sector, acceptance rates for students from this sector remain virtually constant, with about 47% of students (46.8% in 2007) coming from the maintained sector. Indeed, even with the enormous increase in applications, only 39 more students from a maintained school were accepted in 2012 than five years earlier.The most striking change in maintained applications, however, lies in the rate of success at application. This has dropped over the course of the last five years. In 2006, a student from the maintained sector would have almost a one in four chance of being accepted to the University (25.2%). Yet in 2011, this had dropped to one in five (19.9%).This information has greater significance when considered in light of the two studies released to the Observer this week. These, produced by the universities of Cardiff and Oxford Brookes, indicate that once at university, state school pupils achieve well beyond their privately educated counterparts.Oxford Brookes, like the University of Oxford, receives a higher proportion of applicants and entrants from private schools than the average. The findings from their study, however, have prompted the university to adjust their targets for state school entrants and to consider making lower offers to candidates from particularly deprived backgrounds.These are not the first reports of their kind: earlier research from the University of Bristol published in 2010 is frequently used as an example to justify access measures. Reports of this nature have often been criticised by schools in the independent sector as being incomplete.Though statistically overrepresented at Oxford, success rates for students from the independent sector have also dropped. In 2007, applicants from the independent sector could expect almost a one in three (30.3%) chance of being admitted to the university. This is now at one in four (25.0%). In 2012, there were over 100 fewer students from the state sector admitted to Oxford, with the acceptance rate moving from 43.4% (37.5%). Though the independent sector educates only 7% of the total UK school population, they account for 15% of all A-level entries, while 33% of students receiving three As are privately educated.Five years on, there are fewer students from the independent sector. But if the number of successful state-educated applicants remains the same, what makes up the shortfall? 15.6% of successful applicants in 2012 are neither privately nor state educated, comprising the ‘Other’ category. These include independent or overseas applicants. This has increased by over 5% from 10.1% (11.4% post-qualification) in 2006.It is difficult to draw decisive conclusions from all this information, though exciting to note significant increases in applications from the state sector. However, while Oxford’s target of 62% of applicants from state schools is easily being met, it remains to be seen precisely how the university intends to turn a high rate of state-educated Oxford applicants into an equivalent rate of state-educated Oxford students.last_img read more
