Mark Zuckerberg asks governments to help control internet content

World
In an op-ed published in the Washington Post, Facebook's chief says the responsibility for monitoring harmful content is too great for firms alone. He calls for new laws in four areas: "Harmful content, election integrity, privacy and data portability." It comes two weeks after a gunman used the site to livestream his attack on a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. "Lawmakers often tell me we have too much power over speech, and frankly I agree," Mr Zuckerberg writes, adding that Facebook was "creating an independent body so people can appeal our decisions" about what is posted and what is taken down. Facebook charged with discrimination over housing ads Can you stop your parents sharing photos of you online? Amol Rajan: The constant influence of dark ads He also desc

Afghanistan snubs Imran Khan, says don’t interfere in internal affairs

World
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s suggestion that an interim administration in Afghanistan could help end an impasse in talks with the Taliban prompted angry reactions on Tuesday from Afghan politicians, who accused him of interfering in their country’s internal affairs. Afghanistan’s ministry of foreign affairs summoned the deputy ambassador of Pakistan late on Tuesday over Khan’s remarks. “Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its grave objection on Pakistani PM’s recent reckless statements about the peace process and establishment of an interim government, deemed such statements an obvious example of Pakistan’s interventional policy and disrespect to the national sovereignty and determination of the people of Afghanistan,” it said, also recalling Afghanistan’s ambassador from Isla

BSNL IPL 2019 Plans of Rs 199 and Rs 499 With Daily Data Benefit

Buzz
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has introduced a couple of prepaid plans, priced at Rs 199 and Rs 499. The new plans ship with daily data benefit, unlimited voice calling and free Cricket SMS Alerts about the current ongoing Cricket match. The Rs 199 prepaid plan comes with a validity of 28 days while the Rs 499 plan offers benefits for 90 days. Sadly, they both ship with just 1GB data per day which is underwhelming since BSNL is touting them as plans aimed at Cricket lovers and 1GB data benefit will not be enough for the users who stream Cricket matches on their mobile phone. Also, it’s unknown whether these plans fall under the BSNL Extra Data offer which adds 2.2GB daily data to your existing plan’s data benefit. Both the plans are effective across all the 20 telecom circ

Eating more than 10 grams of nuts a day improves thinking, prevents dementia: Study

Health
Eating more than 10 grams of nuts a day may improve thinking, reasoning and memory, and keep age-related mental disorders at bay, a study has found. The study by researchers from the University of South Australia was conducted on 4,822 Chinese adults aged over 55 years. The study is the first to report an association between cognition and nut intake in older Chinese adults, providing important insights into increasing mental health issues, including dementia, faced by an ageing population. "Population ageing is one of the most substantial challenges of the twenty-first century. Not only are people living longer, but as they age, they require additional health support which is placing unprecedented pressure on aged-care and health services," said Ming Li, lead researcher at ...

Piping hot tea, coffee may up oesophageal cancer risk: Study

Health
Drinking piping hot tea or coffee can significantly increase the risk of developing oesophageal cancer, a study claims. Previous studies have revealed a link between hot tea drinking and risk of oesophageal cancer, but until now, no study has examined this association using prospectively and objectively measured tea drinking temperature. The study, published in the International Journal of Cancer, achieved this by following 50,045 individuals aged 40 to 75 years for a median of 10 years. “Many people enjoy drinking tea, coffee, or other hot beverages. However, according to our report, drinking very hot tea can increase the risk of esophageal cancer, and it is therefore advisable to wait until hot beverages cool down before drinking,” said lead author Farhad Islami, of the American Cance
