Microsoft lays down law on trash talking for Xbox Live

first_img Microsoft The Xbox One James Martin/CNET As is the case with many things, a few people can ruin an experience for everyone else. Microsoft made it official what constitutes trash talking on Xbox Live with a new set of rules for the service.On Tuesday, Microsoft released its Community Standards for Xbox that it describes as “a roadmap for contributing to this incredible, globe-spanning community.” One topic addressed is what can or can’t be said. Examples of trash talking that’s no longer allowed:Telling other players to “kill yourself(KYS)” or commit self-harmThreatening someone with physical assault after an intense gameMessaging other players with homophobic slursResponding to someone’s smack talk with sexual slursMaking fun of other people’s identities or personal traitsInsulting a player based on his or her skill level is still allowed, meaning players can say someone sucks at the game. But they might have to get more creative with their insults.The standards also lay out some fairly obvious reasons for getting banned from the services, such as uploading pictures of animal abuse, offering prizes in exchange for follows and pretending to be a Microsoft employee or game developer. There’re also rules many players will find a relief, like prohibiting players from sending repeated game invites to players who haven’t shown an interest in joining, from intentionally “teamkilling” other players and from flooding voice chat with music during a multiplayer match.Those who violate the rules will face a temporary suspension that can include restrictions on the use of online multiplayer, the blocking of voice and text communications and the inability to livestream. Repeat or severe offenders can be permanently suspended from Xbox Live. “Community Standards for Xbox, which launched on April 30, makes it easier to understand what kind of behavior is acceptable on Xbox Live and what is not, and how to positively contribute to the global Xbox community to ensure it is safe, welcoming and inclusive of everyone,” said a Microsoft spokesperson in an email. “The standards are not a new set of rules, but are a call to action that empowers every player to evaluate their behavior and adjust accordingly in order to be a force for good.” Originally published May 3, 8:17 a.m. PT.Update, May 3 12:21 p.m PT: Adds comment from Microsoft.

WhatsApp users set to get option to block frequently forwarded messages

first_img Close Earlier in the week, WhatsApp brought in much-needed privacy feature which made it mandatory for group admins to get prior permission from a person before adding them to a community chat forum. Now, the company is planning to bring more stringent rules for group chat sessions to reduce the number of forwarded messages flooding the app.WABetaInfo, which actively tracks tests conducted in WhatsApp has claimed that the Facebook-owned company is planning to bring three new features- ‘Forwarding info’, to let the user know how many times, it has been shared and another ‘Frequently Forwarded Message,’ which will be tagged to messages.Also, most importantly WhatsApp is also bringing a feature that gives the user the power to block ‘frequently forwarded message’ from flooding the chat sessions. This will be particularly helpful in India, where family and friends have a nasty habit of sending good morning and good night messages every day and also during the elections, the forwarded messages increases manifold.As of now, all the aforementioned features are under testing on both Android and iOS platforms, registered beta users can find them in the recently released update versions–2.19.86 and 2.19.40.23, respectively. WhatsApp will offer power to group admin to block users from flooding the forum with forwarded messagesWABetaInfo (screen-shot)In a related development, Facebook-owned company is busy making improvements in its messenger app in India, as the general election nears. WhatsApp in collaboration with PROTO, a local media skilling startup has opened a hotline for callers to tip off the authorities about the spread of misinformation.If the user receives suspicious messages, rumours, false information on WhatsApp, he or she can call or forward the message to Checkpoint Tipline on WhatsApp +91-9643-000-888. WhatsApp and Proto set up special Checkpoint hotline for users to report rumours, fake news in India ahead of Lok Sabha 2019 election.WhatsApp Press Kit (screen-shot)Once a WhatsApp user shares a suspicious message with the tipline, Proto’s verification centre will validate the information, and inform the user if the claim made in a message shared is authentic or not.However, the hotline is unlikely to help much, as the number of users on WhatsApp in India, runs in the upwards of 50 million and it will be difficult for the company to respond to every complaint.Users can also try installing the cVIGIL app on their smartphone, where they can take images or record video of local candidates doing any malpractices to entice voters and complain to the Election Commission of India.Lok Sabha election 2019 is slated to kick off on April 11 and conclude on May 19, while the counting of voting is scheduled on May 23.

India Supreme Court refuses to pass any order on Kashmir

first_imgIndian security personal stand guard on a deserted road during restrictions on the Eid-al-Azha after the scrapping of the special constitutional status for Kashmir by the Indian government, in Srinagar, on 12 August 2019. Photo: ReutersThe Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to pass any interim or immediate order on lifting of restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir, including restoring communication services, and said the Centre was free to take a call on the curbs given the sensitivity of the situation.An apex court Bench, headed by justice Arun Mishra, made the observation when the Centre submitted that it was doing everything necessary to maintain law and order in J&K.The apex court said the Centre required time to restore normalcy as nothing could be done overnight and deferred for two weeks the hearing on a petition filed by Congress leader Tehseen Poonawalla, challenging the Centre’s decision to impose restrictions and “other regressive measures” in J&K.Kashmiris walk past a blockade put up by residents to prevent security personnel from sealing a mosque ground ahead of the Eid-al-Azha prayers during restrictions after the scrapping of the special constitutional status for Kashmir by the Indian government, in Srinagar, on 12 August 2019.

Is Missy a Cyberman Michelle Gomez Teases Alternate Doctor Who Plot

first_imgMichelle Gomez’s Mistress is one of the finest Doctor Who characters of the revival series.But is the enigmatic Time Lord hiding an important secret?“Wherever there’s a Cyberman; Missy’s not far behind. She might be one,” Gomez teased during a recent chat with “The Fan Show”‘s Christel Dee.The original Mondasian Cybermen are set to return for the last two episodes of season 10, though Gomez declined to confirm her character’s association with the “less streamlined” robots.Missy teamed up with the murderous cyborgs at the end of series eight, when she released an army of the modernized androids to deploy particles that convert compatible organic matter—living or dead—into a new Cyberman.Now, after more than 50 years off the air, the original version of the deadly enemies return for a two-part finale written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay.“Does she [Missy] have something to do with the Mondasian Cybermen coming back?” Dee asked Gomez, who slyly shuts down the question.“I can’t tell you that!” she responds, adding that, “I think they’re great. I think they’re really super.”Gomez last week announced plans to leave Doctor Who at the end of season 10, joining exiting “pals” Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi.“I wouldn’t want to be the Master to anybody else. Because I’ve really, really enjoyed disturbing Peter/the Doctor,” she told Dee. “I just don’t know who I’m gonna get to annoy like that again, quite as much. Apart from my husband, obviously, and my close family and friends.”The Scottish actor, who has appeared in only a handful of episodes since her debut as the gender-bending Master in 2014, consistently brings style, charisma, levity, and a chilling brilliance to the show.Michelle Gomez as Missy (via BBC)And it’s not over yet. In Saturday’s episode “Extremis,” Missy—now a prisoner on Carnathon, facing her death at the hands of the Doctor—promises to be good.“I promise. I’ll turn good, please. Teach me how to be good,” the self-proclaimed queen of evil begged for mercy.“If you’re just playing one thing all of the time, it gets a bit dull, and a bit tiresome,” Gomez explained, when asked if it’s been fun to explore that alternate side of her character. “So it has been wonderful to be able to explore what Missy’s reactions might be if she were ever to have a conscience.”For more insight into the production side of Doctor Who, check out Dee’s interview with script editor Nick Lambon in the video above.Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.last_img read more

Colin Ben Simmons will be a better NBA player than Lonzo Ball

first_img At 6’10, Simmons is more of a Magic Johnson prototype. He’s longer, stronger, more versatile, a far better athlete, finishes better around the rim, and has a higher ceiling because of his superior physical ability.Colin thinks Lonzo will get more attention in L.A., and help lead the Lakers back to relevance, but Simmons will be the better NBA player of the two, barring injury.“I like Lonzo Ball. Ben Simmons is a better player to me. No question.”Ben Simmons will be a better player than Lonzo Ball pic.twitter.com/zidpI987Eo— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) October 19, 2017 Advertisement Supremely hyped rookie Lonzo Ball makes his highly anticipated debut with the Lakers, tonight. Sixers’ rookie Ben Simmons made his NBA debut for Philly, last night, and finished with an impressive 18 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists in a loss to the Wizards.Colin thinks the two rookies will be compared to each other throughout their careers, because they’re entering the league together and both are considered pass first, franchise changing picks.Today in The Herd, he compared the two, and concluded that Simmons will have the better career when it’s all said and done.He thinks Lonzo will be a transcendent passer because of his incredible court vision, in the mold of a Jason Kidd, but he’s not a great athlete, is easily fatigued, and won’t change games with his scoring. He’ll still elevate the Lakers, and will be helped by the likelihood L.A. will land key free agents and continue to surround him with more talent. LeBron James wouldn’t hurt.last_img read more

What next More twists and turns ahead for Greece

first_imgThe bailout deal will face opposition in the ranks of deputies belonging to Prime Minister Alexis Tspiras’ Syriza group. Tsipras will likely have to resort to opposition votes to get the painful spending cuts and economic changes through. That could cost him his government majority in Greece’s parliamentary system, and a new coalition and prime minister could soon be in place, analysts say.The country’s labor minister said Monday that the country could see new elections by the end of the year.So hold on. It’s not a deal until it’s a deal.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Greece’s bailout deal isn’t a deal — yet.It only becomes one if Greece meets tough conditions, like quickly passing a slew of far-reaching economic reforms, cuts and privatizations.After the Greek government dismayed creditors by repealing some economic measures and dragging its feet in negotiations, key lender states led by Germany took a hard line: Reforms first. Money afterward. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home An increase in credit could enable the Greek banks to reopen and perhaps increase their withdrawal limit of 60 euros per day.But analysts say some kind of limit on cash withdrawals and transfers will likely stay in place for months.The closed banks have made normal commerce impossible and worsened the recession. Getting them open again is a top priority if the Greece economy is to recover.___AFTER THAT, WILL GREECE GET ITS BAILOUT?Not yet. Germany’s parliament must also approve the start of negotiations, which officials said could happen Friday. Austria and France will also hold votes on the preliminary agreement.___WHAT HAPPENS WHEN NEGOTIATIONS START?Once Greece passes the reform laws, the institutions monitoring its finances — the European Union’s executive Commission, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank — will get a mandate to start talks. The Greeks will have to make more reforms, such as opening up closed professions, easing worker protections in labor law, and privatizing the national electricity grid.They will also have to transfer government-owned businesses and assets into an independent privatization fund that will sell them off. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories Sponsored Stories A worker clears the sidewalk outside a department store at the first day of the annual summer sales in Athens, Monday, July 13, 2015. Greece negotiators reached a deal with its European creditors Monday, pledging stringent austerity to avoid an exit from the euro currency. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)center_img Men’s health affects baby’s health too And the eurozone says that’s just to get the talks started. At the end of the process, national parliaments have to sign off in Germany, Estonia, the Netherland, Finland, Austria and Slovakia. Only then can Greece tap the money from the bailout fund, the European Stability Mechanism.___HOW FAST CAN GREECE GET THE MONEY?The creditors acknowledge that time is short and that a full bailout deal worth between 82 billion euros and 86 billion euros over three years must be struck quickly.Greece needs 7 billion euros by July 20 to cover its bills and debt repayments, and an additional 5 billion euros by mid-August. It’s already in arrears on a 1.5 billion euro payment to another important creditor, the IMF, and needs to clear that before it can get more IMF loan money.Eurozone countries were discussing whether to help Greece meet these obligations with a short-term bridge loan.___WILL THAT STABILIZE GREECE?Even after it gets any loans, the country faces more uncertainty as its economy will be in bad shape. Whether the reforms will help get the economy going, and how fast, is not clear. Some economists think Greece’s debts are too big to repay.Meanwhile, the tough reforms attached to the loans could force the current left-wing Greek government from office. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Whether the deal will then steer the Greek economy back to health and help it lower its debt remains uncertain.“Doubts and concerns in our view outweigh optimism and euphoria,” wrote Carsten Brzeski, chief economist at ING-DiBa in Frankfurt. “It starts with the fact that there actually is no deal, yet. It’s a declaration of intent.”He recommended “that the champagne bottles should still remain in the fridge for a while.”Here’s a look at Greece’s situation.___WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP FOR GREECE?Under the deal struck with creditors during an all-night meeting in Brussels, the Greek parliament must approve by Wednesday key reforms. They include VAT tax increases and pension cuts, and safeguarding the full independence of Greece’s statistics service, which at the start of the crisis in 2009 was found to have woefully misstated the country’s finances for years.More reforms have to be passed by July 20, including a new civil code that should streamline legal proceedings and lower business costs.___WILL THAT HELP GREEK BANKS REOPEN?That’s the intent.Greece’s banks have been closed since the European Central Bank refused two weeks ago to allow them to draw more emergency credit. Once the legislation passes and Greece gets closer to financial rescue, the ECB may decide to permit more credit. It could do that anytime it can say a bailout deal is in the offing, but may wait until Thursday’s meeting of its governing council — the day after the first Greek vote.

The event commenced this week in Austria and will take place in ten countries until March 20.In Asia, the event will be held in Singapore, South Korea, Japan and China. “SPTO and partners are continuously looking for new markets including Asia and we are optimistic that this will lead to an increased interest in the region which hopefully translate into visitor arrivals,” said SPTO Chief Executive Officer, Chris Cocker.This augurs well with the 2019 China Pacific Tourism Year initiative that SPTO and China as a member country will implement in the coming months. The initiative promotes the Pacific to niche market segments in China and also helps Pacific tourism stakeholders to be ‘China Ready’.A major highlight of the Asia leg of Meet the Pacific will be the launch of the Pacific Promotion Program for Trade, Investment & Tourism (PPTT) in Seoul, South Korea on Wednesday 13th March. “The PPTT agreement between the Korean Government and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat was signed in October 2018 during the Korea-Pacific Island Countries Senior Officials meeting,” said Mr. Cocker.The PPTT will promote trade, investment and tourism between Korea and Pacific Island Countries in terms of job creation, economic development, including trade fairs, trade missions and market promotion. Mr. Cocker said the PPTT funding provided USD $1,000,000 over 2019-2020 for Trade and Tourism facilitation, “Tourism has been allocated USD $500,000 for the 2 years. This will be managed by SPTO and implemented by our Tourism Representative, Ms Daisy Park.”Meet the Pacific is a one day event per city during which Pacific resort partners, national tourism organisations and airline partners who are marketing their services and properties, meet key Asian tour operators interested in selling Pacific destinations in Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia.“We anticipate a successful Meet the Pacific for our members and partners, and are pleased to be supporting Rosie Holidays of Fiji and Turama Pacific of the Cook Islands for this event. I also congratulate Rosie Holidays for driving this for the past four years,” said SPTO Chief Executive Officer, Chris Cocker.He said that Meet the Pacific is “South-South” cooperation at its best, “Rosie Holidays and other Fiji stakeholders initiated this and over the years invited other Pacific countries. This event contributes to increased awareness and visibility of the Pacific in Europe and Asia”During Meet the Pacific, SPTO will also promote the 2019 South Pacific Tourism Exchange (SPTE) tradeshow to be held in New Zealand in May and encourage interested European and Asian buyers to attend the largest annual Pacific tourism tradeshow.Meet the Pacific will be held in Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain and the Czech Republic before moving to the Asian countries.About SPTOEstablished in 1983 as the Tourism Council of the South Pacific, the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO) is the mandated organisation representing Tourism in the region.

Hotel Château Le GrandLucé opens to first guests

first_imgLocated just a 55-minute train ride from central Paris, Hotel Château in the village of Le Grand-Lucé has opened in the Loire Valley. A former country home of the Baron Jacques Pineau de Viennay, the château has been returned to its 18th-century splendour after a careful private restoration under the guidance of the French government.One of the finest remaining examples of French neoclassical architecture to date, serving as a stunning tribute to its noble provenance and rich history, the château offers elevated French style and elegance throughout. The 45,000-square-foot Hotel Château features 17 rooms and suites, a ballroom, authentic French restaurant Le Lucé, a bar, spa and fitness salon, an outdoor pool and classic French gardens. “Voltaire, Mozart, Diderot and Rousseau were guests at the château, and I’m humbled when I look out from their rooms to the same panorama,” said chief executive, Marcy Holthus. ADVERTISEMENT“I’m looking forward to sharing this celebrated historic property with discerning travellers seeking an unrivalled, authentic experience in one of the most beautiful settings in France.”HistoryIn 1760, Baron Jacques Pineau de Viennay instructed architect Mathieu de Bayeux to construct a summer palace on the site of the baron’s medieval castle with the most au courant in design to represent the pinnacle of 18th-century extravagance. Numerous statues commissioned by King Louis XV, exact replicas of statues at Versailles, were placed on the Château grounds as a gift to the Baron. In 1764, the Château du Grand-Lucé was completed – a stunning representation of classicism and modernity.In 2003, the Château was sold by the government to American interior designer Timothy Corrigan. Much of the Château was in its original state and Corrigan masterfully renovated the 45,000-square-foot Château for use as his private residence before transferring the Château to new owner and chief executive of Pilot Hotels, Marcy Holthus, in 2017 to reimagine the property as Hotel Château.Known for its incredible splendour, the Loire Valley was once a region of critical strategic importance to kings, queens, dukes and barons. With easy access from Paris, and perfectly situated between northern and southern France, the valley is sprinkled with hundreds of châteaux, originally built as opulent aristocratic estates, dotting the countryside. The entire area is deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site, with over a thousand years of rich architectural history and artistic creativity. Having a near-perfect climate for a variety of grapes, the Loire Valley produces some of the world’s finest reds and rosés in addition to the fabled Sancerre. There are a multitude of tiny wineries throughout the rolling landscape of the valley.

Polaroid Land Camera in 1972 Co Rentmeester—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images October 27 1972 cover of LIFE magazine Co Rentmeester—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images 1 of 11 Advertisement Polaroid used this years CES to showcase four new products that perfectly demonstrate that new mentality: The Cube an entry-level action camera about the size of four casino dice stacked together and designed by Ammunition a California-based firm headed up by former Apple designer Robert Brunner; the Zip an inkless mobile printer that makes two-by-three inch sticky-back prints of your smartphone snaps; the iZone a tiny zoom camera that uses your cellphone as a viewfinder; and the Socialmatic a rectangular Android-powered smart camera with a built-in inkless printer that harkens back to Polaroids days of yore Cube Polaroid Zip Polaroid All are novel colorful products aimed squarely at photography-obsessed millennials and teens And while you might not expect digitally-native kids to care much about instant-print photography in the days of Instagram and Snapchat Hardy said his new products have been a hit though he didnt share precise sales numbers "[Teens] have been born into digital born into touchscreens and having cameras with you on your phone" Hardy said "So to them to see a single-purpose device designed to print the photograph you just took is magic The biggest purchasers of our instant products are very much this teenage demographic who love instant photograph And what theyre doing is theyre taking photographs using our instant cameras and then they take those hard photos they just got and they get their phone out and they take a picture and upload it to Instagram” Polaroids getting in on the software game too Just before CES it announced a partnership with Blipfoto an online photography community that limits users to uploading only a single photo every day Blipfotos biggest selling point for users is that it can automatically cook up coffee table photo books after users are on the service for a year Those photo books says Hardy give new value to users photographs in a time when the sheer number of images we capture makes each one a little more ephemeral and a little less valuable "[Blipfoto] goes back to this concept of curation sharing and documenting and annotating something that has treasured value" Hardy said “Its not locked in your shoebox in the attic anymore its something that you can now share publicly but also turn into something physical" Blipfoto Founder Joe Tree told TIME that his users response to the Polaroid parternship which turned Blipfoto into Polaroid Blipfoto has been "overwhelmingly positive" a rare reaction in tight-knit Internet communities so often resistive to change of any kind Polaroid has no guarantee of instant success While some young users might flock to its new Socialmatic and Zip instant-printing devices it remains to be seen just how many millennials and teens really want tangible copies of their mobile photosespecially when the Socialmatic costs $299 the Zip $129 and the paper for either around $20 for 30 sheets And shortly after Polaroid introduced the $99 Cube camera GoPro which dominates the action camera market announced a $129 entry-level model called the Hero Still Hardy is confident theres plenty of room for the new Polaroid to keep developing "We werent surprised that GoPro felt like it needed to respond" he said "We just feel like our product addresses a much different demographic Were here to grow the market not steal share If we wanted to do a me-too product we would have There are guys out there that do me-too type products that dont have a brand and dont have any kind of DNA around them From our perspective thats just not how we want
