NEW YORK: It’s been a part of the rural American landscape for decades and, now, the pickup truck is finally getting honored with a postage stamp. Four of them, actually take a look at these – @AceTweetNews


#AceNewsDesk – July.17: Pickup trucks honored on postage stamps

The United States Postal Service’s pickup stamps will feature four classic American trucks: the 1938 International Harvester D-2, the 1953 Chevrolet pickup, a 1948 Ford F-1 and a 1965 Ford F-100. Each will be illustrated on a “Forever” postage stamp.

“For the significant contributions pickup trucks have made in molding this country’s landscape and revolutionizing how we transport ourselves and our goods, we proudly honor these four iconic trucks,” USPS Executive Vice President Jeff Williamson said in a statement.

The earlierst pickup-style vehicles modified passenger cars with their back seats removed and replaced with flat cargo beds. Before long, in the early 1900s, automakers were building pickup trucks at the factory. You could buy a Ford pickup as early as 1905, before the Model T was even available.

It was pickup variants of the popular Model T that really cemented the truck’s role as America’s workhorse. Before long, they were a crucial part of the American auto business. Today, the most popular vehicles in America, by sales volume, are pickups led by the Ford F-series and General Motors’ Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Japanese automakers like Toyota, Nissan and Honda are also competing in the pickup market.

The root of the term “pickup” isn’t really known. You can pick things up with a car, a van or a box truck, too, but, for some reason, the name has become attached to just this type of vehicle, ones with an enclosed cabin for occupants and an open bed for cargo.

This isn’t the first time the postal service has honored vehicles on stamps. The postal service has issued Muscle car stamps, featuring cars like the Shelby GT500 and the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, motorcycle stamps, hot rod stamps and American sports cars stamps.

CLEVELAND: Like Big Star, this quartet ditched the beard-stroking of prog to channel the wham and bam of pop ’s golden age into something catchy and current – @AceTweetNews


#AceNewsDesk – July.17: Cult heroes: Raspberries – 60s-loving progenitors of powerpop

Even if you don’t know who Eric Carmen is, you probably know one of his songs. He was the writer and original performer of the none-more-mopey power ballad All By Myself, which reached No 12 in the UK and No 2 in the US in 1976. And if you don’t know his version, you perhaps know Céline Dion’s cover from 20 years later, a No 6 hit in Britain and No 4 in the US. If that’s all you know of Carmen, you might be inclined to turn away: All By Myself is Without You’s equally cheerless cousin. Put the two songs side by side and you’ve got a segue to end all hope.

Carmen has continued to work steadily since, but it’s not his post-smash career we’re interested in here. It’s the four albums he made between 1972 and 1974 fronting Raspberries, the Cleveland group who serve as a cleancut, wholesome mirror to the decadent, self-destructive Big Star, 730 miles away in Memphis. Even now, more than 40 years on, you can find on the radio, and we said, ‘Wow, those guys are really doing it!’ I thought that was a great song.”

CINCINNATI: A biopic on the life of New York mob boss John Gotti starring John Travolta is set to begin filming later this month – AP – @AceTweetNews


#AceNewsDesk – July.17: Movie about New York mob boss to be shot in Cincinnati
A movie starring legendary New York mob boss John Gotti will be filmed in Cincinnati.

A movie about legendary New York mob boss John Gotti will be filmed in Cincinnati.

Travolta will play the title character in “The Life and Death of John Gotti.” His real-life wife, Kelly Preston, will play Gotti’s wife.

The Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission says filmmakers are taking advantage of Ohio’s revised Motion Picture Tax Credit, which reimburses out-of-state movie producers for some expenses.

Gotti was the head of the Gambino crime family. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1992 after being convicted of murder and other counts. He died behind bars a decade later.

Travolta received an Emmy nomination Thursday for his performance as attorney Robert Shapiro in FX’s “People vs. O.J. Simpson.”

Internet Trolling in 2015 was “the year angry won the internet,” 2016 could well be the year the internet fought back and Facebook needs to look to their laurels and be more aware of the need to prote ct their existing pagers and stop trying to be the biggest – @AceTweetNews


#AceNewsDesk – July.16: Can Facebook flush out the media trolls in the war on hate?

If 2015 was “the year angry won the internet,” 2016 could well be the year the internet fought back.

In 2015, feminist writer Clementine Ford was subjected to a surge of online abuse; dubbed a “whore” and a “bitch who should kill herself.” Trolls said she needed to die, to be “shot in the face” and gang-raped. What was her crime? She had reported a comment from an employee of Meriton Apartments calling her a “slut” on Facebook, and as a consequence he was fired.

2015 was “the year angry won the internet.” As online hate speech spirals out of control, 2016 could well be the year the internet fought back.

That same year, Germany took a stand on anti-refugee Facebook hate speech, and top publications began to silence the haters by removing the comments sections beneath their articles. The BBC concluded, 2015 was “the year angry won the internet.” As online hate speech spirals out of control, in contrast 2016 could well be the year the internet fought back.

The biggest names in tech —Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft — have vowed to clean up community hate speech in less than 24 hours of it appearing, in accordance with a new EU code of conduct. Some say this is censorship, but there is real danger attached to the facilitation of online trolling, and recent terrorist activities have shone a spotlight on this. So, what exactly does Facebook have on its hands, and how can it begin the mammoth task of cleaning this up?

The supposed demise of the comments section

A 2014 survey conducted by the Associated Press revealed that 70 percent of online publishers valued the comments sections that follow articles online. These tools ignite conversion, they allow for an exchange of ideas, a deeper engagement and drive increased traffic to media sites.

Continued abuse of this privilege, from those acting under the guise of anonymity, has been seen in the torrent of racist or xenophobic language and personal attacks. This hate speech may be directed at writers, subjects or other members of the community.

Many top publications, including Recode, chose to kill their comments in order to avoid moderating the growing mass of hate speech.

U.K. news publication The Guardian analyzed more than 70 million comments from the last decade. It highlighted the positives that can be achieved through online comments: Providing instant feedback, “asking questions, pointing out errors, giving new leads,” a tool that serves to “enrich the Guardian’s journalism.” However, the “dark side of comments” revealed a huge amount of abuse, with 1.4 million comments blocked. Exploration of this hate speech furthermore revealed that eight of the 10 most-abused writers were women, and the other two were black, despite these writers forming a minority of the editorial staff.

Chicago Sun Times managing editor Craig Newman described the issue of “a morass of negativity, racism, hate speech and general trollish behaviors that detract from the content,” explaining his decision to temporarily remove the comments section from the publication.

Many others have followed suit, choosing to kill the comments in order to avoid moderating the growing mass of hate speech. Top publications that have rejected comments include Reuters, Recode, The Week, Bloomberg, The Verge, The Daily Dot, The Daily Beast and Vice’s Motherboard, to name just a few.

Reuters’ executive editor told readers that the news company was moving the discussion to social media: “Those communities offer vibrant conversation and, importantly, are self-policed by participants to keep on the fringes those who would abuse the privilege of commenting.”

Social media giants battle hate speech

Unfortunately, any dreams of a self-moderated social media community, free of online trolls, were not to be. On the contrary, these forums have become a breeding ground for racial slurs, misogynistic language and personal attacks.

Twitter sees an average of 480,000 racist tweets a month (compared to 10,000 only three years ago). “We suck at dealing with abuse,” said Twitter’s former CEO Dick Costolo. Once again, however, Facebook leads the race, with a whopping 1 million user violation reports every day. So what type of threatening behavior are we seeing, and how is this connected to the news?

The hate speech examined in a recent study focused on nationality (33 percent), religion (31 percent), race (18 percent), sexual orientation (9 percent), gender (6 percent) and political views (4 percent).

My company, BrandBastion, conducted a study measuring the amount and type of social media threats in 40,000 comments, from 10 of the most-engaged news publishers on Facebook: ABC News, CBS News, Sky News, NBC News, CNN, Time, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

We found that one in 14 comments contained a social media threat. Some 31 percent of these threats were identified as extremely aggressive “defamatory language, profanity and online bullying.” A further 20 percent were classified as “hate speech,” attacking a person or group based on specific attributes.

When exploring the topics that generated the largest proportion of hate speech, we found articles around the elections incited the most anger. Highly offensive attacks on Melania Trump, calling her “ugly,” “fake” and “nasty” rapidly escalated to graphically lewd comments and racial battles between commenters. Overall, the hate speech we discovered focused on nationality (33 percent), religion (31 percent), race (18 percent), sexual orientation (9 percent), gender (6 percent) and political views (4 percent).

As the elections heat up, sites like Facebook are going to have their hands full monitoring and controlling this spread of offensive commenting. With his latest pledge to quash the hatred, all eyes are on Mark Zuckerberg to manage this torrent of abusive behavior.

Community solutions to counter the offensive

Where status updates and selfies once dominated, Facebook today has become a portal for the news. According to traffic-analytics service Parse.ly, social media drives 43 percent of traffic to media sites. Facebook is unquestionably the largest source, and has overtaken Google referral traffic, which accounts for just 38 percent.

What’s more, with advanced tools such as Facebook’s Instant Articles — now officially rolled out to all publishers — article consumption is likely to stay within the Facebook domain. This all means Facebook has a huge power over how we consume the news and its connected comments, making its next steps all the more crucial.

Gigaom writer Mathew Ingram claims the move of news discussion onto sites like Facebook knowingly hands off the responsibility of moderating content to social media platforms. But it also means digital publications pass up on the “value of engagement” that comments bring.

How does the social networking Goliath intend to remove all hate speech within 24 hours, in line with the latest EU code of conduct?

So how does the social networking Goliath intend to remove all hate speech within 24 hours, in line with the latest EU code of conduct? The IT companies have all agreed to put in place notification processes, reviewing these against community guidelines removing or disabling content within 24 hours. They have pledged to educate users, training staff and sharing procedural information with authorities and intensifying cooperation between the giants of tech.

This year Facebook has been involved with a number of initiatives, backing a campaign against misogyny, and launching the Online Civil Courage Initiative in January to empower users to fight extremist abuse.

Some media platforms rely wholly on user moderation, self-censorship or a members-only commenting model. After feminist site Jezebel suffered an epidemic of rape GIFs filling the comments section, it brought back the “pending comment system,” meaning only comments from approved commenters are visible, all others go into a pending queue, which only shows if readers choose to allow them.

Former Reddit product executive Dan McComas cofounded Imzy, a social platform set on eliminating hate speech by only allowing registered members to comment in the forums. SolidOpinion.com has another strategy, limiting commenting ability to only paying members. This approach has attracted customers such as Tribune Publishing, owner of the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times, controversially putting a price on freedom of speech. Another startup, Civil Comments, works on the basis that users rate randomly chosen comments to classify acceptable material, and power flags for offensive content.

Artificial intelligence to aid moderation

Google CEO Eric Schmidt has called on the tech community to create “spell-checkers, but for hate and harassment,” in efforts to counter online terrorism. Applying this intelligence to article comments would be a natural progression of this. The Guardian recently reported tactics to “weed out the trolls,” concluding that moderation is necessary, through human decisioning backed by “smart tools.” However, this all requires an internationally agreed-upon definition of hate speech, and a system that is able to decipher context and also links to external sites.

As trolls become the internet norm, the media world is pulling out the big guns to overthrow them, arming A.I. with contextual understanding and advanced intelligence, and empowering communities to fight back.

Facebook has already turned to the use of AI to report offensive visual content. Currently this technology reports more offensive photos than humans on the network pick up. Last year Twitter followed this example, investing in visual intelligence startups MadBits to identify and flag harmful images.

The Huffington Post uses a machine learning algorithm called JuLiA — “Just a Linguistic Algorithm” — to sort through comments, identifying abusive language to aid moderators in providing a healthy interaction.

Others have turned to third-party technologies that can customize tools based on media sites’ preferences and needs, their target audiences and geographical locations and laws. These steps are an alternative to censorship by removing comments entirely, instead protecting the facilities that enable others to speak more freely.

Will more news sites bring back the comments? This all depends on how successfully Facebook and co. rid them of hatred. As the trolls become the internet norm, the media world is pulling out the big guns to overthrow them, arming A.I. with contextual understanding and advanced intelligence, and empowering communities to fight back.

Today, the Unicode Consortium — the standards organization that regulates and approves all new emoji s — has accepted a Google-led proposal to “highlight the diversity of women’s careers. ”- @AceTweetNews


#AceNewsDesk – July.14: Here Comes Emoji Gender Equality

Google

The emoji council of elders just passed gender equality.

Thanks to four Google engineers (Rachel Been, Agustin Fonts, Nicole Bleuel, and Mark Davis, who is also the co-founder and president of the Unicode Consortium), emojis are about to become far more inclusive.

Today, the Unicode Consortium — the standards organization that regulates and approves all new emojis — has accepted a Google-led proposal to “highlight the diversity of women’s careers.”

The proposal, whose creation BuzzFeed News first reported back in May, includes 11 new professional emojis for women (with options for men, too) in a variety of different skin tones. Its implementation means about 100 new emoji combinations.

Google

Since its adoption by the Unicode Consortium in 2009, the emoji standard has continued to evolve, adding new characters and features. As emojis have exploded in popularity, the character set has seen its share of critics who argue emojis should better represent the people who use them. In recent years the Consortium has taken steps to resolve a perceived lack of diversity in the emoji character set. It’s added both a more diverse spectrum of skin tones and same sex relationship emojis.

But while considerable progress has been made, the Consortium’s work isn’t yet done — which is where the Google proposal comes in. In a blog post today, the company noted that, prior to this morning’s announcement, there were a number of emojis available to represent men in the workplace, yet for women the options were laughably gendered: woman in wedding dress, woman getting haircut, princess.

It’s not yet clear what the time table will be for the release of these new professional emojis. But it’s another step forward for an increasingly important character set and further proof that emojis’ evolution is far from over.

#AceNewsDesk – July.14: Facebook is bringing Instant Articles inside Messenger

Articles hosted on Facebook will now load faster inside Messenger, too.

Facebook is adding Instant Articles — which are articles hosted on Facebook and therefore very quick to load — inside of its standalone messaging app, Messenger.

If you see a little lightning bolt in the upper-righthand corner of an article shared with you in Messenger, that means it’s an Instant Article and should load way quicker than a regular web article.

Worth noting: Ads that are sold alongside Instant Articles on Facebook will travel with those same articles to Messenger. That could mean more ad revenue for publishers using Instant Articles, and perhaps more incentive to host their content on Facebook in the first place.

The change is coming to Android on Thursday, and iOS devices “next week,” according to a Facebook blog post…….

Shaun (A blog I won’t publish)


Hey!

I am not asking for ANYTHING here other than love, friendship and to understand AND HELP ME get past something. I am still blogging on my page, but it’s just for my eyes as it’s closed, and for the 3 people (Publicists) wanting to write my life story. I am fighting a lot here friends, so this is how I feel today.

Hope you are all ok. I am like you, just trying to be ok. I am awake and aware, I lost people, loved ones and friends. Today I am seeking a path to reconnect, as I am, with the CORRECT people I need in my life.

I took the EASY PATH aged 25 when the Government signed me off work for life. I took the money and the drugs, I was weak, I was wrong. Today I am aware and I want to fix this fucking pantomime. So I would love to know who is rooting for me, and who doesn’t give a shit. I am sending this to 300 people (Please if you reply, DON’T HIT ‘REPLY ALL’ as someone did, sorry about that, lol) I need to know who will be around when I am ready to be normal again, have fun. But I can’t forget or lose sight (As Dawn tells me) that I did help 2 wee boys grow up and I am going to be a Granddad TWICE as both Dean and Ryan are to be Dads, amazing times coming and I must be ready for it, I must be ready for them. I have to be better for Dawn and I am at least aware I am trying for her. But the big part is my 2 little girls, they need to see a MAN, not a fool. My Dad helps me always, my Mum gives me good advice. Sadly and pathetically I am still that wee boy stuck watching 1 man try to kill a woman’s heart and soul, but now I am awake, I need to let that wee boy go and be a man for the people above. It’s that simple. PS: Forward this to someone you think may want to see it…Please?

Shaun

One day you might need help, we ALL do. So don’t presume I am playing the victim, I am trying to free myself to help others. Life is that simple, the centre of the World can be ANYTHWHERE we choose.

My reasons, my fight…

Gym Report – Battling the demons of my past

I can say I am half the man I am today in terms of bulk or size, but each passing day brings new questions and less answers. The oppressive nature of what I am doing to myself is REALLY hitting home right now. See to be a better version of yourself, you must also understand and see the barriers between your own soul and true happiness or as close to ‘Nirvana’ as could be possible, because I am aiming for ‘Clarity of mind’ and I remember I even wrote about it way back in November 20th 2014 called ‘Finding Nirvana’, back then my mind that was full of awful drugs and I was a legal junkie, was SCREAMING to the World. Back then I was aware I had to do what I am doing today to get to where my kids, my partner, loved ones and friends need me to be, and of course for me a little

When I am in agony or sore, even just done with the Gym, showered and on my bed with a pain I can’t describe I play music, close my eyes and pretend I am signing it to my family or loved ones. Silly, I know, but it’s a process of control I am battling right now. When I can close my eyes and listen to a song FULLY and act out in my mind to the last words of the song PERFECTLY in my mind where I am the real singer, is control. Often the battle is plugging the headset or ear buds in, putting them in or over my ears, closing my eyes, trying to sing the song to my loved ones, in my mind, I am lately seeing ‘Mid-performance, that I am being distracted with Ghosts from my past. I am laying there, I am KILLING the song brilliantly to my family in my minds imagination, then bad thoughts happen, someone gets up and tries to hit me, or I freeze and can’t sing. Sometimes in my imagination of trying to control my mind I am being stopped by a force I am yet able to see, so I can fix it. Something is stopping me having a free mind sometimes, not all the time, but it is there.

So is it my 3 Disables? Is it my 3 Medications (One is VERY strong) or is it MYSELF? Trying to go into the Gym every day is now impossible so I can’t and don’t. I miss maybe 2 days a week now due to sleep or I just can’t do the Gym. When I can do the Gym I do it as close to bed time as possible because usually the pain after the Gym knocks me out cold. When I do the Gym early in the day, that day is the battle, till the next day. I am living in moments, days are lasting weeks and hours are lasting a lifetime. What I am seeing here is a pattern of delay almost; it’s like LIFE IS HOLDING ME BACK. I am off the strong medication, I am no longer a ‘Dr’s Heroin Patient’ by choice of course, I am now as open minded as I can be and I am FEELING life pull me back. I am CERTAIN what is pulling me back is myself. I don’t think it’s an evil force or God or anything spiritual at this stage, but there are spiritual implications in my cause for sure.

I am battling myself today, and I WILL WIN. But it is taking so much longer than I thought it would. The song I love to close my eyes, whilst in pain and in my mind sing it start to end is below. Often I can do it, I won, I OWNED MY VERY SOUL AND MIND. But when I can’t do it, when the bad memories enter my mind, what is that? That is what I will be telling the next time I write here. I am keeping a written journal with my Partners help, along with images of good and bad moments. So this is an ‘Evolving story’ and only 1 person can write it in their mind before telling it, and that person is me. This is priceless to my mind in understanding, but killing me often. I will get there or die trying. I REFUSE to be ‘That disabled fat Guy’ Society will point to and call a LIAR. I am going to show society Disabled is not the image below and Disabled people CAN FUCKING LIVE NORMALLY whist being something else to others, be it from the sufferer or the person pointing. This sign below DOES NOT DO ‘BEING DISABLED’ JUSTICE. People don’t see a VISIBLE wheelchair or illness so they say ‘LIAR’ and I am going to prove to the World many things soon, but the 1st one is this vile image below that EVERY Disabled person, in a Wheelchair or not is battling. This image below needs redefined and redone. I don’t have an image but for now all I can say is the image below DOES NOT REPRESENT BEING DISABLED.

Till next time mate

Over and out

LOS ANGELES: When an earthquake hits, it’s duck, cover and hold, but for many, the next step is usua lly “search.” – @AceTweetNews


#AceNewsDesk – July.13: Google Streamlining Information In Event Of Quake With Magnitude Of 2.5 Or Greater

That’s why Google is now streamlining a way to find the quake magnitude and epicenter information almost immediately.

When people are grappling for information, they may be experiencing an earthquake, we really want them to have that information on hand,” said Susan Cadrecha of the Google search team. “Having it appear right at the top of Google is great place so they get it right before they need to dig in to do any deeper research.”

To access the information, the Google search team says all you have to do is look up “earthquake near me” or “earthquake” followed by your city.

“That information will include everything from a visual map, to giving them guidance on how to deal with aftershocks, or any effects of that,” said Cadrecha.

The service links to U.S. Geological Survey computers, which are constantly getting data on quakes.

Your computer’s location sensor will help bring up just the quakes near you.

“The information is pushed to our computers within seconds,” said Brad Aagaard of the USGS. “It’s sort of the firsthand information you get directly from the government sources is good because it dispels other information that may not be accurate that’s out there on social media.”

The new service will only report on quakes that register at a magnitude of 2.5 or greater.
