Image: AP/Press Association Images Short URL A US FEDERAL jury has found Rolling Stone magazine, its publisher and a reporter defamed a University of Virginia administrator in a discredited story about gang rape at a fraternity house.The 10-member jury found journalist Sabrina Rubin Erdely was responsible for libel, with actual malice. Jurors also said Rolling Stone and its publisher were responsible for defaming University of Virginia administrator Nicole Eramo.Word of the jury decision came Friday afternoon in multiple news outlets.Eramo claimed the 2014 article portrayed her as a villain who discouraged the woman identified only as “Jackie” from reporting the incident to police. A police investigation found no evidence to back up Jackie’s claims. Erano is seeking damages of $7.5 million.Rolling Stone’s lawyers said there was no evidence that the reporter knew what she was writing about Eramo was false or had serious doubts about whether it was true.Jurors heard closing arguments on Tuesday after listening to more than two weeks’ worth of evidence.The story about Jackie’s rape set off a firestorm at the university and in schools nationwide. Eramo received hundreds of angry letters and emails calling her the “dean of rape,” among other things, and faced protesters outside her office.The story crumbled after other news outlets began asking questions and police found no evidence to back it up. The article was officially retracted in April 2015. Rolling Stone contributing editor Sabrina Rubin Erdely. Source: Steve HelberOver the course of the more than two-week trial, the jury of eight women and two men watched 11 hours of video testimony, heard from a dozen live witnesses and examined nearly 300 exhibits.At issue were three statements made about Eramo in the article and several comments Erdely made about the “university” and “administration” in media interviews before the article was retracted.Among the statements in the article that Eramo claimed were defamatory was one in which she is quoted — through Jackie — as saying that the university doesn’t publish all of its statistics about sexual assault because “nobody wants to send their daughter to the rape school.” Eramo says that was fabricated by Jackie.

Source: AP/Press Association ImagesThe judge earlier this week dismissed Eramo’s claim that the story, when taken as a whole, implied that Eramo was a “false friend” to Jackie. Rolling Stone had called that a “critical element” of her case.Because the judge determined that Eramo was a public figure, she had to prove that Rolling Stone made statements with “actual malice,” meaning it knew that what it was writing about her was false or entertained serious doubts as to whether it might be true.Eramo’s attorneys argued that Erdely came into the story with a preconceived storyline about institutional indifference to sexual assault and intentionally disregarded statements and facts about Eramo that didn’t fit that narrative. University of Virginia administrator Nicole Eramo. Source: Steve HelberThey claimed Erdely also ignored red flags about Jackie’s credibility, including the changing account of Jackie’s rape and her refusal to let Erdely talk to people who could corroborate her story.Lawyers for Rolling Stone acknowledged that Erdely and her editors made serious reporting mistakes, but argued that there was no evidence they acted with actual malice.The magazine’s attorneys said that Erdely and her editors had full faith in Jackie until they realised she was no longer credible in early December after the story was published.Rolling Stone has agreed to pay all of Erdely’s legal costs and any penalties that may be levied against her.Read: Rolling Stone heading to trial over debunked story of college rape >Read: Fraternity wrongly accused of gang rape files $25 million lawsuit against Rolling Stone > 11,572 Views http://jrnl.ie/3064124 Friday 4 Nov 2016, 6:32 PMlast_img read more

Number of Greeks moving to Germany up 80 per cent

first_imgThe number of Greeks relocating to Germany has increased by almost 80 per cent during the first half of the year, data by the German statistics office showed on Thursday. Some 501,000 foreigners had moved to Germany, the European Union’s dominant economy, between January and June 2012 – a rise of 15 per cent compared with the same period last year, the data showed. The number of Greeks moving to the country rose by 78 per cent. The figure for Portugal and Spain went up by 53 per cent over the same period. Germany grew modestly by 0.2 per cent in the third quarter but with the eurozone’s debt-laden members suffering deeply, the currency bloc as a whole was likely to have slid into recession, figures showed Thursday.

Les adolescents manquent de sommeil en semaine

first_imgLes adolescents manquent de sommeil en semaineSelon une enquête publiée mardi, les adolescents, lorsqu’ils vont en cours le lendemain, dorment une heure et demie de moins à 15 ans qu’à 11.L’Institut national de prévention et d’éducation pour la santé (Inpes) a publié mardi une enquête qui révèle que les adolescents dorment une heure et demie de moins à 15 ans qu’à 11 lorsqu’ils ont cours le lendemain. D’après l’étude, réalisée auprès de 9.251 collégiens, cette baisse de temps de sommeil est compensée par des nuits plus longues lorsqu’il n’y a pas classe le lendemain.À lire aussiTroubles du sommeil : comment bien dormir et éviter l’insomnie ?Ce phénomène de compensation concernerait ainsi 16% des jeunes de 11 ans et plus de 40% de ceux de 15 ans. Alors qu’en 3ème, le temps moyen de sommeil la veille d’un jour de classe est évalué à 8h08, il est en revanche de 9h49 s’il n’y a pas cours le lendemain. D’après l’étude, un quart des adolescents de 15 ans seraient ainsi en manque chronique de sommeil. Or, un manque chronique est susceptible de favoriser, entre autres, des troubles de l’humeur et du comportement, l’hypertension artérielle, ainsi que l’obésité, souligne l’Inpes.”Chez les adolescents, le seuil de privation chronique de sommeil est considéré comme sévère à partir de 7 heures. Si une telle privation est très rare avant 13 ans, elle concerne un quart des jeunes de 15 ans, qui peuvent dès lors être considérés comme à risque supérieur de morbidité”, souligne le rapport.Le 9 septembre 2011 à 13:51 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Alien Sightings Extraterrestrial hunter spots two triangular UFOs near International Space Station

first_imgYouTube: Tom BrownConspiracy theorists all across the world strongly believe that aliens from deep space have been in touch with NASA and the United States government for years. Now, adding up the heat to these outlandish claims, Scott C Waring, a popular alien hunter has apparently spotted two triangular UFO flying very near to the International Space Station (ISS).In his recent website post, Waring revealed that the discovery was originally made by a YouTube user named Tom Brown. The video was apparently taken from the ISS live feed, and in this bizarre clip, two triangular UFOs can be seen moving very near to the space station before disappearing.Scott C Waring revealed that this is one of the many sightings that prove the presence of aliens near the International Space Station.”UFOs often move in pairs, I have seen orbs in pairs move like this, but never triangle UFOs and never this close with such amazing detail. And we see each one is a different color, one red larger craft, and one smaller grey-brown craft. These are 100% alien craft watching over the space station,” wrote Waring on his website ET Data Base.Until now, the most intriguing UFO sighting near the International Space Station was spotted by Graham McHardy, a popular skywatcher who died a few months ago. A video featuring his discovery was recently uploaded to YouTube by Waring, and it shows a strangely-shaped UFO flying very near to the ISS. Even though experts dismissed this sighting stating it as a reflection of objects placed in the interior of the space station, conspiracy theorists adamantly claim that these are all proof of extraterrestrial existence.last_img read more

Wenger rues lack of efficiency

first_imgA subdued and sombre Arsene Wenger was left to rue Arsenal’s lack of efficiency after his team lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United on Saturday in a game they dominated. ‘We have not dominated many games against United like we did today but we were not efficient enough and made defensive mistakes. We had plenty of opportunities to win the game and we are very disappointed. We were a bit naive,’ Wenger told a news conference. Wenger’s misery was compounded by injuries to midfielder Jack Wilshere and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who were both forced off in the second half.  ‘Jack has an ankle injury. I don’t know how bad it is yet. Wojciech is not bad,’ he said.Arsenal have slipped to eighth in the EPL table, 15 points behind Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.last_img

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

The cruelty of algorithms Heartbreaking open letter criticizes tech companies for showing

first_img2018 has thrown up a huge range of examples of the unintended consequences of algorithms. From the ACLU’s research in July which showed how the algorithm in Amazon’s facial recognition software incorrectly matched images of congress members with mugshots, to the same organization’s sexist algorithm used in the hiring process, this has been a year where the damage that algorithms can cause has become apparent. But this week, an open letter by Gillian Brockell, who works at The Washington Post, highlighted the traumatic impact algorithmic personalization can have. In it, Brockell detailed how personalized ads accompanied her pregnancy, and speculated how the major platforms that dominate our digital lives. “…I bet Amazon even told you [the tech companies to which the letter is addressed] my due date… when I created an Amazon registry,” she wrote. But she went on to explain how those very algorithms were incapable of processing the tragic death of her unborn baby, blind to the grief that would unfold in the aftermath. “Did you not see the three days silence, uncommon for a high frequency user like me”. But Brockell’s grief was compounded by the way those companies continued to engage with her through automated messaging. She explained that although she clicked the “It’s not relevant to me” option those ads offer users, this only led algorithms to ‘decide’ that she had given birth, offering deals on strollers and nursing bras. As Brockell notes in her letter, stillbirths aren’t as rare as many think, with 26,000 happening in the U.S. alone every year. This fact only serves to emphasise the empathetic blind spots in the way algorithms are developed. “If you’re smart enough to realize that I’m pregnant, that I’ve given birth, then surely you’re smart enough to realize my baby died.” Brockell’s open letter garnered a lot of attention on social media, to such an extent that a number of the companies at which Brockell had directed her letter responded. Speaking to CNBC, a Twitter spokesperson said, “We cannot imagine the pain of those who have experienced this type of loss. We are continuously working on improving our advertising products to ensure they serve appropriate content to the people who use our services.” Meanwhile, a Facebook advertising executive, Rob Goldman responded, “I am so sorry for your loss and your painful experience with our products.” He also explained how these ads could be blocked. “We have a setting available that can block ads about some topics people may find painful — including parenting. It still needs improvement, but please know that we’re working on it & welcome your feedback.” Experian did not respond to requests for comment. However, even after taking Goldman’s advice, Brockell revealed she was then shown adoption adverts: “It crossed the line from marketing into Emotional Stalking,” said one Twitter user. While the political impact of algorithms has led to sustained commentary and criticism in 2018, this story reveals the personal impact algorithms can have. It highlights that as artificial intelligence systems become more and more embedded in everyday life, engineers will need an acute sensitivity and attention to detail to the potential use cases and consequences that certain algorithms may have.
