APTN National NewsCarolyn Sinclair’s body was found wrapped in plastic and left in a back lane in Winnipeg last week. Police are attributing her death to her high-risk lifestyle. It’s a grim reminder of the dangers faced by Aboriginal women who live and work on the streets.Two other women living high-risk lifestyles have gone missing from the same street as Sinclair, and now rumours on the street suggest that a serial killer may be at work.APTN National News reporter Meagan Fiddler speaks with a woman who left the streets last year and knew Sinclair before she died.
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Since The New York Times published allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein in October, multiple men in entertainment, media and politics in the U.S. and beyond have faced allegations ranging from inappropriate behaviour to forced sexual misconduct to rape.To be sure, prominent men have faced sexual misconduct claims before. But the accusations against Weinstein have opened a floodgate, sparked an international conversation and put new pressure on companies, industries, and political leaders to respond. President Donald Trump has condemned some of the accused, been more muted about others, and found himself again being asked about sexual harassment and misconduct allegations levelled against him during last year’s presidential campaign. The Republican says they’re fake.The #Metoo moment is also prompting re-examination of past sexual misconduct claims against powerful men, including Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.

NEW DELHI: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has told a television channel that he had “always considered the BJP as a communal party.” Between 1998 and 2009, his Biju Janata Dal (BJD) was an alliance partner of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government. “They (the BJP) were less so (communal) earlier,” Naveen Patnaik said on the previous partnership. He said he discovered the BJP’s “true colours” after communal violence erupted in Kandhamal region in 2009, over which he ended his ties with the BJP. The riots, which broke out in the aftermath of the killing of a Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader, saw local Christians being targeted by mobs. Though no longer a formal member of the NDA, the BJD has lent tacit support to the BJP-led government at the Centre and is expected to be one of the regional parties that the BJP might turn to, should it fall short of numbers.
San Francisco: Facebook has announced long-term investments in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to proactively detect content that violates its policies. “To help us catch more of this problematic content, we’re working to make sure our AI systems can understand content with as little supervision as possible,” Manohar Paluri from Facebook’s AI team said during the company’s F8 conference in San Jose, California, on Thursday. “Advances in natural language processing (NLP) have helped us create a digital common language for translation, so we can catch harmful content across more languages,” Paluri added. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year Facebook has developed a new approach to object recognition called “Panoptic FPN” that has helped AI-powered systems understand context from the backgrounds of photos. “Training models that combine visual and audio signals further improves results,” said Paluri. Facebook is currently facing several probes across the world for privacy violations and the spread of harmful and biased content on its platforms, including WhatsApp. Joaquin Quinonero Candela from Facebook’s AI team said the company is building best practices for fairness to ensure AI protects people and does not discriminate against them a” into every step of product development.

To manage that risk, Facebook said it has developed a new process for inclusive AI. This process provides guidelines to help researchers and programmers design datasets, measure product performance, and test new systems through the lens of inclusivity. “For vision, those dimensions include skin tone, age and gender presentation and for voice, they include dialect, age and gender, said the company.
CAIRO – A sniper shot dead an Egyptian soldier Wednesday in the lawless Sinai Peninsula where the army has been waging a relentless campaign to root out militants, a security official said.The 20-year-old conscript was killed while training at a military camp in Sheikh Zuwayed, the official said.“He was shot in the head,” the official said, adding the nature of the wound indicated the bullet had been fired from altitude. Egypt’s army has poured troops and armour into the Sinai to crush militant activity which has surged since the military overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi on July 3.A subsequent crackdown on Islamists has resulted in more than 1,000 people being killed and more than 2,000 arrested nationwide.Dozens of soldiers and policemen have also been killed in near daily attacks in the Sinai.
CAIRO – Egyptian troops killed a key suspect Tuesday wanted over attacks on the army in the Sinai this year and deadly 2004 and 2006 bombings of tourist resorts, security officials said.Troops killed Mohamed Hussein Mohareb al-Shahir, his son and a third suspected militant in an operation south of the North Sinai town of Sheikh Zuwayed, the officials said.Another four suspected militants were captured in the operation, part of an intensifying campaign by the army in the restive peninsula which borders both Israel and the Gaza Strip. Shahir was suspected of involvement in a spate of attacks on the security forces in the Sinai in recent months, including an August 19 ambush that killed 25 policemen in the deadliest attack of its kind in years.Security sources said he was also implicated in bombings of tourist resorts in the south of the peninsula that killed dozens of people, among them Israeli and Western holidaymakers, in 2004 and 2006.They said he had issued a fatwa, or religious decree, justifying attacks on the security forces.Jihadist militants have stepped up attacks on security personnel in the Sinai since the army overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July.The army has since poured troops and armour into the Sinai, in an operation which Israel says has its blessing, despite provisions in their 1979 peace treaty setting strict limits on military deployments to the peninsula.
Senior forward Wayne Chism paced the Volunteers with 22 points and 11 rebounds, unleashing his relentless motor after disposing of his oddly positioned headband at halftime.“All of our bigs, Brian Williams, Kenny Hall, Wayne Chism, it was electric tonight,” Tennessee guard Scotty Hopson said. “Their success down low was huge for us. We all made a conscious effort to rebound and it all worked out.”Ohio State’s defense didn’t play poorly the entire night, though. The Buckeyes jumped out to an 11-4 lead thanks to seven quick points by sophomore William Buford and several turnovers forced by the OSU defense.Tennessee fought back and the teams traded buckets until OSU entered the locker room at halftime clinging to a 42-39 lead.The Buckeyes extended the lead to six with 15:39 to play, but a porous defense and stagnant offense plagued them down the stretch. Turner scored Ohio State’s first 14 points after halftime, as his teammates struggled to find a rhythm.“[The Volunteers] do a great job on the half-court defense,” Matta said. “A lot of times it looks like something’s easy, but it really isn’t. … We just didn’t make shots in the second half.”Turner finished his junior season with typical stat sheet-stuffing totals of 31 points, seven rebounds and five assists. For the national Player of the Year favorite, despite its abrupt ending, the season won’t be one he looks at with disappointment.“I had the most fun I’ve ever had playing basketball,” he said. “I think we grew as a team. We genuinely care for each other and have a lot of fun. To overcome the situations we had, proved a lot of people wrong and just believing in each other was one of the best times in my life.“Right now, it’s tough to go through, but I feel like we did a lot of great stuff and we had a great season.” Evan Turner sat at midcourt, mesmerized. Several teammates ventured over to the junior, offering to help him to his feet, but Turner refused assistance, opting to bypass postgame handshakes and head directly for the locker room.The reality of a hard-fought, season-ending loss didn’t take long to sink in for the Big Ten Player of the Year, competing in scarlet and gray for perhaps the final time.Tennessee, the No. 6 seed in the Midwest region, used a late surge in the closing minutes to knock off No. 2 Ohio State, 76-73, before a Rockytop-giddy crowd Friday at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.The Volunteers advance to the Elite Eight, where they will face Michigan State on Sunday.“We just didn’t get the job done,” junior center Dallas Lauderdale said. “We didn’t get the rebounds. They were going to get the ball. They were attacking us down low.”The meeting was the fourth in the last three years between the Buckeyes and Volunteers, and all four have been decided by five points or fewer.This time, Tennessee clenched a three-point lead as the Buckeyes gained possession with 12 seconds left. Turner had two looks at the basket, but both shots – and the team as a whole – fell short.“You want the ball in the hands of your best player,” said junior Jon Diebler, who made just one of his eight shot attempts. “[Turner] is the best player in the country. We will live with having the ball in the best player’s hands with 12 seconds left.”Despite the lack of a whistle, Turner felt there was contact on his desperation heaves.“I definitely liked the look I got,” he said. “I thought it was going to be like an and-one shot. I thought I was going to get a call.”The Buckeyes certainly had their share of chances, well before their inability to convert at the game’s conclusion. After converting 56 percent of its first half field goals, OSU made just 32 percent of its second half shot attempts.The most evident determining factor, however, was the difference in post production between the teams. Tennessee out-rebounded Ohio State by a 41-29 margin, while outscoring the Buckeyes in the paint by a 50-22 advantage.“They just got in the paint too easily,” Diebler said. “And when we collapsed, they did a good job of passing. With their height and athleticism, they’re able to see the floor a lot easier.”Buckeye forward David Lighty battled foul trouble throughout much of the game, forcing coach Thad Matta to dig a bit deeper than normal into his seldom-used bench. The OSU defense suffered, as the Buckeyes were overmatched on the boards.“You can’t worry about fouls, especially at this time of the year,” Lighty said. “You just have to keep playing hard and have backside help. But our defense just wasn’t what it used to be today.”
After so much speculation over Paul Pogba’s future, a report from Spain claims the reason Manchester United will never let Paul Pogba leave the club.As tensions grow higher between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, there has been a lot of speculation over the future of both men at the club.Just a few days before the Red Devils played that Premier League match at Old Trafford against Newcastle, there were reports from the English media that suggested Jose Mourinho will get sacked for good regardless of his result against Rafa Benitez’s squad.The match finally arrived and the Red Devils struggled to get a victory, the Portuguese manager claimed after that match that there was a manhunt against him and the players were scared because of that.Paul Pogba’s case is even more interesting than Mourinho’s because it’s well-known that his agent wants the French midfielder to leave the club by the end of the season but that can be impossible because of a very compelling reason.The French player has been repeatedly going public on social media about his desire to leave the club, with ambiguous messages and public statements that have angered the fans mostly.The Glazers will NOT sanction the sale of Paul Pogba. He is Manchester United’s ‘Messi’ and is untouchable according to the owners. He is an integral member of the squad, with or without José Mourinho. (Source: Mundo Deportivo) pic.twitter.com/pdwoBmKEi6— Transfer News Live (@DeadlineDayLive) October 12, 2018But regardless of what either the player or his agent want for the future, a report fro Mundo Deportivo confirms that the Glazer Family has absolutely no intention of letting their most expensive player leave and they would rather pay Mourinho his €27 million instead of accepting any offers for Paul Pogba.The former Juventus player grew up in the Manchester United academy, only a misunderstanding with Sir Alex Ferguson drew him away from the club but the Glazer family regards Pogba as their own “Lionel Messi” due to his beginnings as a Red Devil and all the history he has with the club.The board of directors plans to approach directly to the player and keep offering him as many contract renewals as he wants, because they want him to retire at Manchester United and take the club back to its glory days with his skills.The problem here is that Pogba might not want to stay at the club for many years, the Glazers will have to do a lot of convincing with both him and the agent in order to keep him interested.The last resort plan would be to sell him if he wanted to leave for good, but they would make the negotiations extremely difficult for any club that came after him.Top 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening..@paulpogba with the Mickey Mouse hands 😂 pic.twitter.com/dBpBNzSaIT— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) October 12, 2018FC Barcelona is well aware of the whole situation, they already know where the club owners stand and they are not willing to go to war against them over one player.This new information about Paul Pogba is the reason the Catalan club is already looking for other options, because they consider the Frenchman as an impossible target right now.There is no way that FC Barcelona is going to offer more than €100 million for any player, even if that player is named Paul Pogba and he is one of the best midfielders in the world.Also, this whole situation kind of looks like it’s not going to end well for Jose Mourinho regardless of what happens.We say that very loosely because even if he gets sacked by the Glazer family, the man will walk away with a big fat check and the chance of coaching another great club around Europe.This is a win-win situation for the Portuguese manager, and not so much for Paul Pogba because he doesn’t really have much say in this whole situation.Los campeones del Mundo no paran de celebrar 😎(Vía @paulpogba ) pic.twitter.com/p1OVYUMvta— Goal en español (@Goal_en_espanol) October 12, 2018What do you think about the Glazer family not letting Paul Pogba leave Manchester United?
