A congressional effort to crack down on misinformation in Spanish is expanding to include popular messaging platforms.

Democrats are probing social media companies for misinformation being spread on their platforms as analysts warn that fake posts online are eroding trust in the country’s electoral system, undermining public health efforts and stoking violence.

WhatsApp Inc. of Meta Platforms Inc., Telegram Group Inc. and Signal, providers of encrypted instant messaging services, heard Monday from 23 Democratic lawmakers asking for information on the companies’ efforts to combat misinformation targeted at Latino communities. .

“We have a heavy responsibility to ensure that big tech companies and group messaging apps take the necessary steps to insulate our democracy and our democratic institutions from bad actors bent on destroying our great American experiment,” the senator said. . Bob Mendez (DN.J.) said in a government statement to Bloomberg. “I am more committed than ever to working with these companies, as well as holding them accountable when needed.”

This March 23, 2022, a photograph shows the WhatsApp logo displayed on a tablet in Lille, in the north of France.

Meta and Signal did not immediately respond to a request for comment; Telegram could not be reached for comment.

In letters led by Menendez, Sen. Ben Ray Lujan (DN.M.), and Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-Calif.), lawmakers emphasized that companies need not compromise user privacy or the integrity of private communications when tackling the spread of misinformation in Spanish. Companies should increase access to fact-checking organizations in all languages ​​and hire staff with the “necessary cultural background” to counter misinformation in Spanish, the lawmakers wrote.

Lawmakers also probed Twitter Inc. and TikTok’s handling of false information in Spanish during a meeting last week.

Twitter and TikTok pressure anti-misinformation efforts

Misinformation in Spanish is considered more prevalent because it goes unchecked longer and targets a population that tends to be more online. Among Latino respondents whose primary home language is Spanish, 66% received misleading or harmful information about the coronavirus vaccine through messaging apps, according to a 2021 poll by Change Research.

WhatsApp is especially popular among Latinos who use it to communicate with family and friends abroad. About half of Latinos in the United States use it, more than any other ethnic or racial group in the country, according to Equis, a research organization focused on Latin American communities.

WhatsApp has partnered with Univision to provide verified information. Users can send audio, images or text that they find suspicious to a WhatsApp number and fact checkers will verify it.

But lawmakers said ‘critical gaps’ remained, pointing to claims by Spanish content moderators that they are not paid as well as other bilingual moderators and are not taken seriously when raising concerns about their working conditions.

“These issues reinforce our concerns that your efforts to address misinformation for your Spanish-speaking users are not an internal priority at WhatsApp or Meta,” the lawmakers wrote.

Lawmakers have also expressed concern over Telegram because it allows up to 200,000 people to be in a group, making it an attractive platform for bad actors to quickly spread misinformation to mass audiences. WhatsApp allows up to 256 people; The signal allows up to 1000.

The companies have until June 13 to answer a series of questions, including what resources they have dedicated to fighting misinformation in Spanish and what metrics they use to gauge the success of their programs.

Pakistan’s mighty military on Sunday warned critics to avoid smearing the premier institution as it ‘strongly opposed’ ‘intensified and deliberate attempts’ to drag it into politics following the ousting of Imran Khan’s government last month.

The 69-year-old cricketer-turned-politician was ousted from power last month in a no-confidence motion, which he says was orchestrated by the United States with the help of local actors for his pursuit of a independent foreign policy. His supporters used social media to target the military for doing nothing to save his government.



In a statement, the military said efforts by some politicians, journalists and analysts to push the institution and its leadership in political affairs were “extremely damaging”.

“Recently, there have been intensified and deliberate attempts to embroil the Pakistan Armed Forces and their leadership in the ongoing political discourse in the country, the statement said.

These attempts manifest themselves in direct, insinuated or nuanced references to the armed forces as well as their senior leaders, made by some political leaders, some journalists and analysts in public forums and various communication platforms, including social media.

The army further stated that this practice of unsubstantiated, defamatory and provocative statements and remarks was extremely harmful.

The Pakistan Armed Forces strongly opposes such illegal and unethical practices and expects all to abide by the law and keep the Armed Forces out of political discourse for the sake of the country. he added.

The military has ruled Pakistan for almost half of its history and played a behind-the-scenes role in sending home various elected governments.

But his spokesman told a press conference last month that the military had decided to stay away from politics, and in particular the ongoing political struggle between former Prime Minister Khan and his opponents.

However, this did not prevent the governor of Punjab, Omar Sarfraz Cheema, who on Thursday requested the intervention of the army to get the province out of the crisis.

In a letter to the army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Cheema asked him to play a decisive role in the current chaotic times, as he was of the opinion that the Punjab in constitutional crisis had been held hostage.

According to Dawn, an anti-army hashtag generated over 69,000 tweets and a similar hashtag over 410,000 tweets in the past few days. The Federal Investigation Agency has also launched a crackdown to arrest those who defame the military.

Lately, a video clip of Bol TV presenter Sami Ibrahim criticizing General Bajwa has gone viral, prompting the FIA ​​to open an investigation against him.

The description

the global over-the-top (OTT) market was rated at 101.42 billion USD in 2020 for $251.76 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 13.87% from 2021 to 2027. Over the top (OTT) is an online movie and TV content platform provided that can be watched with a broadband internet connection instead of a platform based on a cable or satellite provider. Currently, the adoption of OTT has greatly helped the video, music, podcast and audio streaming category. The growing adoption can be attributed to narrow genre choices, packaging flexibility, greater device availability, internet penetration, and falling costs. Currently, over-the-top services are at a relatively nascent stage, are widely accepted as a trending technology globally, and are expected to witness innovative and advanced transformation. However, the proliferation of smartphones integrating advanced communication functions has revolutionized the market for OTT services. The significant growth of OTT services has increased data usage, thereby increasing the revenue stream for telecom service providers.

According to the ITU, in 2019, internet users worldwide were 4.13 billion, up from 3.92 billion in 2018. Thereafter, global mobile data traffic is expected to exceed 77 exabytes per month in 2022, up from 8.5 exabytes per month in 2017, according to the same source. Since the advent of high-speed internet has opened up new revenue generation opportunities through OTT services for telecom service providers, the market studied is expected to gain momentum.

The adoption of cloud services is one of the main drivers of OTT services. Cloud technology has enabled “service portability” to OTT service providers. For example, according to Tata Communications, the public cloud market has grown massively over the past decade, growing from a value of less than $6 billion a decade ago, and the market is expected to be around $236 billion. by the end of 2020, enabling service portability features by allowing users to download data and access content from any device and anywhere. Additionally, the growing demand for personalized content has led to significant adoption rates of OTT devices. This provided users with the ability to view a variety of content. In addition, affordable high-speed Internet prices in emerging economies have led to a massive increase in adoption rates of subscription services, depending on user convenience.

Global Over the Top (OTT) Market Dynamics

Drivers: Growth in adoption of smart devices and increased access to higher internet speeds

The popularity of binge-watching on OTT platforms has enhanced the viewing experience for customers, and smart devices have played a key role in enriching the experience. They provide a must-have viewing experience with some kind of convenience. Additionally, the ability to embed various content on mobile devices with high-speed Internet has enabled users to watch the content anywhere and anytime. Mobile data traffic is a factor as better access to higher internet speeds and the widespread use of smart devices have helped customers stay up to date with the digital world without having to wait. Consequently, instant gratification has become a powerful force in the consumer world with users adopting mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and PCs.

North America has the highest mobile broadband and smartphone adoption rates in the world. Operators in North America have begun shutting down 2G and 3G networks to crop spectrum. This trend is expected to continue as operators in the region transition to 5G networks using a combination of low, mid and high band spectrum. The need for higher internet speeds is driven by the growing number of smartphone subscriptions and the need to increase the average data volume per subscription.

Constraints: growing threat of video content piracy and threat to user database security due to spyware

Despite the factors driving the market, the growth of the market is expected to be hampered owing to the growing threat of video content piracy and security threat to user databases due to spyware. Amid heated debates regarding the changing landscape and the foreseeable eventualities of a rapidly growing market, piracy of online video content has increasingly shown its strength in the distribution of original content. According to data from leading industry associations, approximately 47% of consumers are frustrated with the growing number of subscriptions needed to access content that may interest them. This has been the main reason why some customers have resorted to illegal measures such as viewing content through torrent websites or illegal streams.

Opportunities: mergers with national producers and film studios in all regions

Amid the COVID -19 pandemic, movie studios and content producers have felt the brunt of complex/movie theater closures. To deal with the situation, domestic producers are increasingly turning to OTT. Extended shutdowns and the current state of the economy have opened the doors to the world of entertainment via OTT. OTT media platforms have grown in prominence as people fear to go to the cinema to watch entertainment content. Players like Netflix have stepped in to fill the void. Entertainment content producers are turning to OTT service providers to reach viewers.

Until now, the films, which were supposed to be released theatrically if not for the COVID -19 pandemic, are being forced to change their plans. The solution is found by broadcasting the content on streaming platforms. On the other hand, producers, having understood the potential of OTT platforms, are developing content only for OTT viewers.

HR can follow these 3 steps to minimize misclassification of gig economy workers | Fisher Phillips https://sanshinzencommunity.org/hr-can-follow-these-3-steps-to-minimize-misclassification-of-gig-economy-workers-fisher-phillips/ Wed, 04 May 2022 15:14:22 +0000 https://sanshinzencommunity.org/hr-can-follow-these-3-steps-to-minimize-misclassification-of-gig-economy-workers-fisher-phillips/ As the gig economy continues to grow and labor shortage issues continue to mount, human resources departments may feel pressure to ensure appropriate separation between independent contractors and those employed by the ‘organization.

As the gig economy continues to grow and labor shortage issues continue to mount, human resources departments may feel pressure to ensure appropriate separation between independent contractors and those employed by the ‘organization. While HR can play a key role in supporting the business functions performed by gig economy contractors, it is essential to ensure that HR departments do not “manage” contractors independent so that the courts or government agencies conclude that these contractors are misclassified. and should in fact be considered employees. This is an even more acute concern given that the Department of Labor has indicated that it will continue to prioritize actions to prevent and remedy the misclassification of workers as independent contractors. What are three key steps your HR department can take to minimize the risk of misclassification scenarios?

1. Consider Proven Gig Platforms

On-demand work apps and gig platforms can meet staffing needs during the busiest seasons and automate the hiring process. Employers in various sectors are already turning to gig platforms to quickly tap into pools of skilled labor. Food delivery companies, for example, have the ability to hire short-term delivery drivers during peak hours or during events like the Super Bowl that stretch staffing demands.

By leveraging on-demand work apps, you can not only create separation with independent contractors, but also streamline their onboarding processes. In addition to creating separation, on-demand hiring platforms eliminate recruitment delays and allow you to effectively retain and onboard workers for short-term needs during peak demand cycles.

2. Keep track of talent

In order to retain experienced independent contractors with well-aligned skills for the job at hand, human resource departments can create and maintain a database of independent contractors who have performed work for the company. By developing and maintaining a roster of experienced freelancers, you can quickly notify skilled workers of assignments when the need arises. By relying on experienced workers, HR departments can avoid having to manage or train freelancers who are unfamiliar with the tasks at hand.

3. Position workers to succeed

Finally, you can also create programs for independent contractors to self-monitor their expenses to reduce their potential tax burden, track their work done for the business, and reduce the amount of direct communication between the independent contractor and your organization. By preparing forms and processes related to the completion of work, you can reduce the risk of independent contractors being actively managed by human resources departments. You can also prepare standard correspondence to send to site workers at the end of each project to streamline the process of closing the relationship with the independent contractor.

Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) Australia will design and manufacture an Integrated Communications System (ICS) for the nine new Hunter-class frigates, after the German company received a subcontract from prime contractor BAE Systems Australia.

The deal (of an undisclosed value) includes adding “scopes of work over time,” R&S noted in a May 3 statement.

Domain Kieran McLaughlin, maritime sector manager at R&S Australia, said the company will leverage experience gained through the integration of its Naval Integrated Communications System (NAVICS) into the Type 26 Frigate for the UK RN, as well as the Evolved Cape-class Patrol Boats for the RAN.

Under the first engineering contract, R&S Australia will provide in-country program management, systems engineering, integration, installation and verification services for the acquisition and commissioning of the ICS.

Noting the Australian government’s efforts to encourage the development of defense industrial capabilities, R&S Australia Managing Director Gareth Evans said: “On HunterRohde & Schwarz Australia will seek to maximize opportunities for competitive Australian industry to assist in the manufacture, integration, testing and commissioning of ICS.

He added: “We have also obtained from STS Defense Ltd in the UK the technology transfer and license to manufacture the configurable communications masts, or pole masts, for the Hunter classroom.’

Digital transformation has revolutionized education. Beyond online learning options, students are using tablets and computers instead of books, pencils and paper. Threat actors know this, which is why education is the industry with the most recorded malware attacks.

Yet, when schools offer security training, most often it is the administrators who receive the instruction. It is crucial to prioritize the training of teachers in cybersecurity. According to a study by Morning Consult, 59% of educators do not know if they have taken safety trainingor they haven’t had one recently, when more than three-quarters of teachers rely on online learning.

Additionally, the study found that many teachers are unfamiliar with common cybersecurity threats.. For example, even as classrooms were virtual for much of 2020, half of educators were unfamiliar with video bombing. Even fewer knew about attacks like phishing and ransomware.

Lack of cybersecurity training for teachers can put student personal information at risk. Cybercriminals prioritize targeting children’s personally identifiable information (PII) because this data is not monitored as closely as adult PII. In fact, children’s data may not be identified as compromised until they apply for a job and a driver’s license – Continue here: https://www.verizon.com/business/resources/articles/s/cyber-security-training-for-teachers/

Phishing is one of many threats to school security

Threats to school security are just as significant as they are to business.

With 2020 described as a “record” year for cyberattacks on K-12 public schools in the United States, the verdict for 2021 should come soon. It may not be too different, as students, teachers, and staff access learning materials and educational resources online through a variety of devices such as tablets or laptops. Multiple Attack Surfaces Increase Security Risks for Schools, including Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, malware, and ransomware. However, one of the most common methods used by threat actors is phishing.

Phishing uses social engineering and fraudulent messages to unwittingly recruit users to help them deploy malware. Given the high volume of attacks Lobed in both primary and higher education institutions, any defense strategy must include measures to help mitigate security threats. Cloud computing in education allows students to access their assignments anywhere there is an internet connection and teachers to access those assignments or download courses, expanding the threat landscape.

Can you name a school that doesn’t close at the end of the day?

I did not mean it. But many educational institutions that lock down their doors fail to lock down their private communications systems as well, putting their teachers and students at serious risk.

Without the proper precautions, it’s easy for hackers to steal your school’s sensitive information such as financial audit reports, employee email passwords, student medical records, and more.

This is why an increasing number of schools are adopting cloud-based communication platforms. The cloud can help provide the end-to-end protection required for your staff’s collaboration needs. Whether it’s phone calls, video conferencing, instant messaging, group chat, and more, isn’t it time to see what the cloud can do for you?

Here are the top 5 security features Verizon’s Virtual Communications Express (VCE) cloud-based phone system leverages to keep schools safe:








1. Hard-to-hack systems

Verizon VCE provides secure software design coding, configuration, and monitoring that helps protect your communications from cyberattacks.

Verizon’s hardened operating system and network security govern ports and protocols. You can also have application security for your voice portal, including SIP access control lists, password policies and enforcement, device locking, call handling policies and controls .


2. Availability by redundancy

The number of unpredictable situations that could impact your operations can be endless. On-premises server rooms can experience electrical circuit overload. Denial of service attacks can crash your network. Construction diggers might accidentally cut the lines of communication connecting your school to the outside world… you get the idea.

That’s why Verizon’s VCE uses redundant server clusters, routers, and data network paths to help avoid a single point of failure, including geographic diversity.


3. Independent Risk Assurance

The best and most trusted service providers follow independent third-party reviews.

Verizon VCE is committed to complying with popular industry benchmark certifications and standards, including: TL 9000, ISO 9000, ISO 27001, FedRAMP, and NIST SP800-53.

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines — The Supreme Court is considering tapping into various social media platforms, including TikTok, as part of its aim to secularize its rulings.

“We have also started with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram but hopefully we can have a podcast kasi napansin natin ang tao ngayon hindi mahilig magbasa [because we’ve noticed that the people no longer like reading]. They [would] rather listen wherever they are, if they have the internet or whatever access they have, they have the device and they’re interested in a particular decision that’s really important, then they can hear the podcast,” said Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo on Wednesday. journalists.

TikTok is a social media platform where users can post video content on various topics.

As Election Day approaches, TikTok has become a political battleground for supporters of various candidates, with video content released in support of their respective bets and against their rivals.

TikTok is currently considered one of the biggest social networks next to Facebook and Instagram. It has over 700 million active users worldwide.

Gesmundo admitted that it was necessary to study the use of TikTok because the majority of shared content is satirical.

But given its wide reach and to counter misinformation, he said “we will be looking at this as a means of communication using TikTok. We consult experts in effective communication.

Secularization of the Supreme Court website

The Chief Justice added that the Supreme Court’s official website (www.sc.gov.ph) will be revamped with the ultimate aim of becoming the go-to place for people hungry for information.

“The website will be redesigned and will contain more reliable and accurate information, understandable by lay people,” Gesmundo said.
