Scheer says free trade believers must stick together against Trump protectionism

first_imgOTTAWA – Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says nations that believe in free trade need to present a united front against the protectionist moves coming out of the United States.Scheer was speaking from London, where he is travelling for a week of meetings with British officials and politicians including Prime Minister Theresa May, who he met with Thursday.The trip comes during a big week in trade: International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne signed Canada onto the 11-member nation Trans-Pacific Partnership in Chile, then flies to Paraguay to launch free trade talks with the Mercosur trading bloc — the second-biggest in the Western Hemisphere after NAFTA, including South America’s two biggest economies, Brazil and Argentina.On the flip side Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump announced new steel and aluminum tariffs of 25 per cent and 10 per cent, respectively — a subject Scheer said came up in many of his meetings this week. Although Canada is being exempted from the tariffs pending the outcome of NAFTA talks.Countries like Canada and the U.K. that believe in free trade need to work together to convince the U.S. that protectionism is not the right path, Scheer said.“Countries that are committed to free trade need to help each other and work together to deal with these types of issues as they come out of the United States,” said Scheer.The world managed to avoid the temptation of protectionism following the 2008 global recession, and those who believe in its benefits need to change the minds of those that don’t, he added.Scheer met with a number of different members of the British cabinet since his arrival, including foreign minister Boris Johnson and trade minister Liam Fox. However, the matter of tariffs did not come up during Scheer’s conversation with May, where they stuck to the topic of free trade between Canada and the United Kingdom.The premise of Scheer’s entire trip is to promote his promise that establishing a free trade agreement with a post-Brexit Great Britain will be a top priority for him if he wins the next election in Canada in 2019.May and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau laid the groundwork for a post-Brexit trade deal between Canada and the U.K. last fall when May visited Ottawa. They plan to use the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement, or CETA, as the template, tweaking it where needed. Britain is Canada’s biggest trading partner in the EU currently.May set up a working group to explore the work necessary for a seamless transfer of CETA into a Canada-U.K. trade agreement after Britain leaves the EU, currently scheduled to happen a year from now.Scheer says he isn’t in England to criticize the current government’s work on the file, but to stress how important it would be in a Conservative government in Canada.Scheer also said his party is very concerned about the status of NAFTA negotiations and while he says any Canadian government would be challenged to deal with the Trump administration, the Liberals could have eased some anxieties by putting contingencies in the recent budget in the case NAFTA talks go badly.— follow @mrabson on Twitterlast_img read more

Aung San Suu Kyi Visits Prince Charles

first_imgNobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi was reunited with The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall on a visit to Britain this week.The Burmese opposition leader made a special request to see Their Royal Highnesses on a tour which also sees her meet political leaders including Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague. The Prince and The Duchess accompanied Ms Suu Kyi into the Garden Room at their official residence in London Clarence House.The Prince settled on one sofa and The Duchess and Ms Suu Kyi sat on another as The Prince and Ms Suu Kyi began talks which were expected to last 45 minutes.Ms Suu Kyi met The Prince for the first time at the same location in June last year.This week’s meeting took place shortly before the christening of three-month-old Prince George at nearby St. James’s Palace.Ms Suu Kyi has close connections with Britain having read philosophy, politics and economics at St Hugh’s College, Oxford, between 1964 and 1967, before settling in the university city with her late husband Michael Aris, a Tibetan scholar.His Royal Highness knew Mr Aris and the year the scholar died he became Patron of the Michael Aris Memorial Trust for Tibetan and Himalayan Studies.The Prince and Ms Suu Kyi have another connection apart from his links to her late husband. Lord Mountbatten, The Prince’s great uncle, and the campaigner’s father, General Aung San, were involved in important events leading up to Burma’s independence from British rule.At last year’s meeting with The Prince, Ms Suu Kyi planted a tiny black tulip magnolia sapling in the garden. It is near a “spectrum” magnolia planted by the Dalai Lama in 2008. The Prince escorted Ms Suu Kyi into the garden to see the tree, which has made good progress since. That part of her visit had depended on the weather, but the sun was shining brightly which enabled them to brave a strong breeze to inspect the tree.The Prince told Ms Suu Kyi: “I’m so glad it’s there.” And Ms Suu Kyi replied: “It’s looking very nice.”He then accompanied her to her chauffeur-driven vehicle, with the pair shaking hands warmly before she went off to her next read more

UN helps Kenya prepare for potential floods due to El Niño

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and Kenya’s Ministry of State for Special Programmes will co-chair a consultative workshop on 15 September to draw up contingency plans in the face of El Niño, a periodic warming of the eastern Pacific Ocean that can produce droughts in some parts of the world and flooding in others.“Previous experiences of El Niño rainfall in Kenya in 1997/8 and torrential rains in 2002/3, 2006 and 2008 resulted in the disruption of livelihoods, population displacement, loss of property and assets, damage to infrastructure and death of people and livestock,” OCHA said today.In its most recent update on the subject, the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO) stated that the expectation is for El Niño conditions to very likely prevail through the remainder of 2009 and into the first quarter of 2010. 10 September 2009The United Nations is helping Kenya prepare to mitigate the impact of potentially lethal torrential rains anticipated for the last three months of the year due to the El Niño weather pattern. read more

Montabert launches new excavator attachment for mine drilling applications

first_imgDesigned for use on excavators ranging in size from 15 to 25 t, the Montabert CPA 225E drilling attachment, recently launched in North America, enables operators to “transition from digging to drilling in a matter of minutes” says the company. The CPA 225E drilling attachment can be easily transported between jobsites, delivering optimal drilling power in mine blasthole, slide stabilisation, tunnelling, anchor bolting and other long-reach applications. The 1,450 kg CPA 225E drills holes measuring 2.54-3.81 to 7.62 cm in diameter and up to 4.27 m deep.The addition of an optional 3.66 m rod adder enables the CPA 225ER to reach a drill depth of 7.92 m. Standard features on the single-pass CPA 225E drilling attachment include an aluminum feed — providing 47° of drill rotation — as well as a high performance Montabert HC50 drifter. The HC50 is equipped with a proactive hydraulic dampener and an energy recovery system to ensure a long life span for the striking bar and provide high efficiency drilling performance. In addition to ensuring straight hole drilling, the HC50 drifter delivers progressive blows while absorbing and recovering reflected energy — safeguarding various components of the drilling attachment from damage. An industry-exclusive Intelsense system is a radio-controlled performance-managing feature which automatically analyses drilling conditions and adjusts factors such as feed pressure, feed speed, anti-jamming controls and percussion pressure. Radio remote control capabilities of the CPA 225E allow the drilling attachment to be operated from outside the excavator’s cab, eliminating difficult and expensive excavator customisation. A hydraulic dust collector is standard on the CPA 225E, offering high suction capacity or the use of a water injection system.last_img read more

How Google mapped the Grand Canyon using unwieldy backpacks

first_imgToday, Google added the Grand Canyon to its armchair-explorer service, Google Maps‘ Street View. The addition doesn’t just show one trail that has been singled out, but contains over 75 miles of trails and surrounding roads.Google notes some famous portions of the Canyon are available to explore from the safety of your desk chair and air conditioner, such as the South Kaibab trail, Meteor Crater, and Bright Angel Trail. Of course, the imagery is present in a full 360 degrees so you can get a real sense of your virtual surroundings.Unlike the Street View of your neighborhood though, Google couldn’t send one of their famous cars driving along the Grand Canyon to map it, so they sent actual people in on foot to explore, using an Android-powered backpack called the Trekky.The backpack weighs 40 pounds, and is strapped to a person in the employ of Google whose literal job is to go on a hike for the good of the Internet. The Trekky is powered by Android (you’re guess is as good as ours as to what version), and contains 15 lenses that are angled in various directions so it can take images that can be connected to one another in order to form one coherent 360-degree panorama. The Trekky’s cameras snap pictures every 2.5 seconds as the hiker walks around.You can take a look at it in action below.Altogether, the end result of the mapping is 9,500 panoramic images of the Canyon available for your perusal so long as you have access to a web browser and an Internet connection.last_img read more

Denuvos game DRM is too hard to crack so a hacker bypassed

first_imgIn January of this year, well known Chinese cracking forum 3DM predicted that games would become uncrackable by 2018. The reason was a digital rights management (DRM) solution called Denuvo, which was used to protect Just Cause 3 (and many other games) and was proving incredibly difficult to crack.The reason Denuvo works so well is because it uses anti-tamper tech to encrypt the software being protected. Any crack needs to get around the encryption before it even starts trying to circumvent the DRM. Denuvo’s final ace up its sleeve is the regular updates. If a weakness is identified, Denuvo gets patched and future games will also ship immune to that threat.But Denuvo has just suffered a rather embarrassing defeat courtesy of a 19-year-old Bulgarian hacker who goes by the name of Voksi. Armed with a copy of the Doom (2016) demo, he discovered a loophole and removed Denuvo’s influence completely from the full version of the game.Voksi didn’t crack Denuvo, he just took the time to understand how it works and created a workaround in the form of a loader application. Here’s how he did it:When you install a game from Steam that uses Denuvo for protection, Denuvo assigns a unique ID to it based on the hardware you installed the game on. Try running that copy on another machine and it won’t work properly or at all. So Voksi used the Doom demo to generate a legitimate Denuvo ID which his loader then swaps out and associates with a pirate copy of Doom also installed on the machine. As far as Denuvo can tell, the pirate install is a legal copy and lets it run unhindered.This workaround worked for 3 days before Denuvo got patched and stopped it. In that time 650,000 pirate copies of the game were made to work and register as legit on Denuvo’s servers. The same workaround was also applied to other games including Rise of the Tomb Raider.It’s a small victory in the fight against DRM, and Voksi has apparently identified another loophole allowing him to bypass Denuvo once again. The cracks are starting to appear even if a real crack possibly never will.last_img read more

Courtois explains the pressure at Madrid

first_imgThe Belgian goalkeeper knows that defending the goal of Real Madrid is the most difficult job in the football world.A goalkeeper’s job is very difficult. Not only you are the last line of defense against the rivals, but you are also in constant pressure.This is why Thibaut Courtois feels there’s a lot of pressure when playing for Real Madrid.“Whenever a goalkeeper makes a mistake, it almost always ends up in a goal, so there is always pressure,” he told UEFA.“There’s pressure here at Madrid, but I don’t think that changes whichever club you’re playing for,” he added.“You have to focus at all times.”“When we’re attacking, it is very important to be alert, to play behind the defensive line; if it’s a high defensive line then you need to get further upfield,” he continued.“You need to play in the space and stop those balls getting through; for example against Roma [in the group stage], I had to come out of the area two or three times to stop the counter. That’s when you need to be alert and that’s why you always need to be concentrating.”“Over the last ten years, a lot more has been asked of goalkeepers – to be good with your feet, play in the space – when maybe it was not like this 20 years ago,” he continued.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“Even so, when I played at Genk as a child, they asked you to play with your feet from a very young age.”“It also depends on the team you play for, whether they’re only looking to play long balls or to play out from the back,” he explained.“Being a goalkeeper nowadays is much more than making saves on the line – it’s also about playing into space, playing with your feet, and reducing the distance between yourself and the defense. It’s a little of everything.”“It’s the same for every match: I watch videos of the team’s attacking routines, I watch the penalties, I look at the mistakes, I see how the strikers finish,” he said when preparing for matches.“That doesn’t change, whether it’s the Champions League, the Liga, or a cup tie.”“They have a good team with a mix of experience and young talent and I think they play good football. They will come and play open. They won’t defend; that’s their style, they play football,” the goalkeeper concluded talking about Ajax.Great teamwork pays off. Proud of our team for jumping to second place. A big thanks to all our fans in the world for cheering us on #HalaMadrid— Thibaut Courtois (@thibautcourtois) February 10, 2019last_img read more

New iPad on the Way

Time Incs Well Done Smiles Its Way to 500Million Views

first_imgBreaking through the clutter of foodie videos is a daunting task even for a massive content network like Time Inc. One answer is to throw a hot dog smoothie (see below for a good laugh) at the problem and lean back to see over 36-million video views pour in. While the digital native brand Well Done is much more than tongue in cheek, this viral April Fool’s Day hit is indicative of the witty touch its team brought to the genre since its launch earlier this year. Because the new brand was distributing content primarily through its broad range of company titles, including Time and SI, “we really needed a diversity of content—not just hands and pans,” says Stacey Rivera, digital content director for food at Time Inc.Well Done needed more than recipes, like explainer and fun clips that would appeal to a range of social media editors as they made their decisions to redistribute from the pool of 60-100 pieces the team was producing each month.The content and distribution model appears to have worked. Time Inc. tells Folio: that less than a year into the project, Well Done recently surpassed 500-million video views. The content categories have now expanded beyond recipe/explainer/humor to include some hosted food tips as well as long-form programming. Indeed, Well Done has an inaugural spot on Facebook Watch’s experiment in TV-like programming with its “Homemade Vs. the Internet” series. One of the strongest signs that Well Done is getting some branding traction in a socially capricious ecosystem is the old-fashioned success of its daily newsletter. In September, the email list exceeded 1.5 million with an enviable open rate of over 36% and 33% clicks on opens. “It has far exceeded what anyone thought it would do,” Rivera says.Well Done is a content and distribution model that Time Inc. is also executing with the more recently launched The Pretty. It is designed to leverage the overall footprint of the company’s diverse brands, especially across social. Rivera credits the quick growth and success to a highly collaborative team of social editors that work across the brands to assess the available Well Done assets most relevant to audiences, even in the news and sports verticals, and take back suggestions to produce more diverse content. In part, Facebook Watch has been liberating for the team because it is such uncharted territory. “We are learning about how to break some of our own rules that were so data-driven,” Rivera says. But in this new realm somewhere between lean-in and lean- back, there is not a lot of data yet. In breaking free from its own shooting style and formats, “we have learned a lot about our space and our own talent. We have a tremendous pool of talent that is really equipped for this sort of mobile social video.” Well Done has been aiming its content mainly at Facebook and Instagram, with increasing forays into Pinterest as that platform ramps up its video model. Facebook Watch, however, may be the biggest “learning experience” for the emerging brand. In the long-form video experience, one of the chief challenges has been figuring out “what it takes to get people to stay with you.” “We are 100% meant to build a brand,” says Rivera. “From start, the project aimed for a consistent voice, content and look and feel that not only stood out but aimed at what Rivera considers a “white space” in the market—“people who are interested in food but not food obsessed.” It’s unsurprising then that executing Internet recipes is one of the subjects of the brand’s videos itself. The Facebook Watch series is a duel between a cooking pro and amateur to replicate an online recipe they only see fleetingly. The “Mom Vs.” series pits a mom against a current foodie meme. Yes, this is all kind of meta. But it is designed to cultivate a relationship with the food-curious and make these videos immediately recognizable. Interestingly, given the Millennial skew, Rivera notes that there is no Snapchat strategy. “We don’t feel we can give a good experience, and if you aren’t on Discover I am not sure the upside is clear.” The upside on the ad side for Well Done comes almost exclusively from branded videos, including early support from Kraft, ACH Foods and LouAna. And these early-in supporters appear to be buying into Well Done as a brand. “Clients are typically evaluating and buying Well Done as a standalone opportunity, but it can certainly be packaged into a larger media buy,” says Karen Kovacs, Group President, Time Inc. The brand is exploring new spaces for 2018, including le- veraging in licensing, perhaps podcasting, e-commerce and certainly new forms of longer video.As for the viability of the model, all Rivera can say is that eight months in, “We made back our investment.” But as the “pivot to video” cliché quickly becomes a sardonic joke among digital insiders, any video-first, distributed content project raises natural questions. Foremost, is a socially distrib- uted project like Well Done just opportunistically harvesting eye- balls in feeds or actually building a sustainable brand?last_img read more

Bhushan Steel crashes 10 after RBI identifies 12 defaulters for bankruptcy proceedings

first_imgWorkers sit on iron pipes before loading them on a truck at an iron and steel market in an industrial area in Mumbai September 11, 2013 (representational image).Reuters fileUpdate at 5.45 PM: The BSE Sensex ended 52 points higher at 31,155 while the NSE Nifty closed at 9,618, a gain of 11 points.Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) were net sellers of Indian equities worth Rs 161 crore on Wednesday (June 14), according to provisional data released by the National Stock Exchange. Bhushan Steel closed 6.57 percent lower at Rs 73.25.Original story:Shares of Bhushan Steel plunged 10.2 percent to Rs. 70.35 on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) on Wednesday in response to media speculation that the company could be one of the 12 defaulters identified by the RBI for initiating bankruptcy proceedings. The stock later recovered to trade at Rs. 72.65, down 7.40 percent, at around 12.45 pm. Lanco Infratech was down 7.86 percent to Rs. 2.58 at around 1.10 pm on the BSE.The 12 accounts constitute almost 25 percent of Indian banks’ massive bad loans estimated at Rs. 10 lakh crore ( (including gross NPAs and restructured loans).Other accounts that are reportedly part of the 12 accounts include Alok Textiles, Essar Steel and Lanco. The RBI’s move follows the passage of an ordinance on May 12, paving the way for initiating decisive action against defaulters.Ironically, the steel sector has been identified by the Modi government for a leap in production and sales in its National Steel Policy released on May 4 this year.The BSE Sensex was trading 48 points higher at 31,151 led by Reliance Industries, Dr Reddy’s Labs and Hero Motocorp.On Tuesday, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) came out with a statement, marking the most-definitive step to tackle India’s growing bad loan menace.”An Internal Advisory Committee (IAC) was accordingly constituted and it held its first meeting on June 12, 2017. The IAC also arrived at an objective, non-discretionary criterion for referring accounts for resolution under IBC. “In particular, the IAC recommended for IBC reference all accounts with fund and non-fund based outstanding amount greater than ₹ 5000 crore, with 60% or more classified as non-performing by banks as of March 31, 2016. The IAC noted that under the recommended criterion, 12 accounts totaling about 25 per cent of the current gross NPAs of the banking system would qualify for immediate reference under IBC. “The Reserve Bank, based on the recommendations of the IAC, will accordingly be issuing directions to banks to file for insolvency proceedings under the IBC in respect of the identified accounts. Such cases will be accorded priority by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT),” the central bank said in the statement.As for other defaulters, the RBI asked banks to come up with a resolution plan within six months.last_img read more

The Hiking Grandma who did the Impossible – 3 Times

first_imgImagine walking 2,050 miles along America’s Appalachian Trail, one of the most grueling hikes on the planet, enduring uneven mountainous trails, fallen trees and huge boulders, sleeping on the ground, and relying on the kindness of strangers along the way. It sounds like a rough trip. Now imagine doing it at the age of sixty-seven.Emma Gatewood became the first woman to hike the Appalachian Trail solo and completed her journey in five months. It was 1955, and the trails were not as maintained as they are now and were sometimes not even connected.Emma Gatewood. Photo by Stratness CC BY-SA 3.0She had no previous hiking experience other than when she hid from her abusive husband in the woods, but she educated herself on what she could eat in the wild. Growing up on a farm, she was no stranger to hard work.Her first attempt, in 1953, starting in Mount Katahdin, Maine, was unsuccessful as she was not properly prepared, accidentally broke her glasses, and got lost almost immediately.Mount KatahdinPark Rangers helped her find her way out. Not to be deterred, Emma started again two years later with a sack made from denim in which she carried her supplies. No sleeping bag, tent, backpack, or even a compass.She took a shower curtain to keep dry, a blanket, a journal, first aid kits, small non-perishable food items such as nuts and raisins, cans of Vienna sausages, extra tennis shoes, and a few other items.Emma Gatewood. Photo by Stratness CC BY-SA 3.0Starting at the opposite end, in Georgia this time, Emma averaged about fourteen miles a day; she bypassed a troop of Boy Scouts who were unable to hike at her pace. The media got wind of Emma’s extraordinary trek and “Grandma Gatewood” suddenly became a household name.Newspapers reported her progress and took note of her complaints about the condition of the trails, which may have led to the improvements found today.Emma Gatewood. Photo by Stratness CC BY-SA 3.0Her newfound fame also helped her get meals and sleeping quarters with fans who lived near the trails. When the tennis shoe company Keds found out they were her preferred brand, they took advantage of the publicity and supplied her with more shoes. She wore out six pairs on her lengthy walk.Diagram of the Appalachian Mountain systemAfter hiking through northern Georgia, across Tennessee, Maryland, and the southeastern corner of Pennsylvania into New York state and up through Vermont and New Hampshire, she finally reached northern Maine. Afterwards, she gave interviews to Sports Illustrated and appeared on television on the Today Show, You Bet Your Life, and the Tonight Show. According to a blog in the Washington Post, when asked why she did it, she replied, “Because I wanted to.”Not one to sit idle, she made the trip again in 1957 “so she could enjoy it.” Emma hiked it a third time in 1964, but she did it in sections, becoming the first person to hike the trail three times.Emma Gatewood. Photo by Stratness CC BY-SA 3.0In 1959 she hiked again, this time from Independence, Missouri to Portland, Oregon, for Oregon’s Centennial celebration. An old-time covered wagon train had left several weeks before Emma, and she not only caught up to it but passed it, as they traveled through Idaho.In 1959, in her home state of Ohio, Emma assisted in establishing The Buckeye Trail, which consists of twenty miles going north, beginning at Hocking Hills State Park in the southern section of the state and ending at Old Man’s Cave in Benton Township; it has a section named after Emma.Emma Gatewood died in 1973, at the age of eighty-five, from what was believed to be a heart attack. She was buried in Ohio Valley Memory Gardens in Gallia County, Ohio.Read another story from us: How a Movie About a Pig Inspired James Cromwell to Change his LifeBen Montgomery wrote a book about Emma’s exploits called Grandma Gatewood’s Walk, and Ohio filmmaker, Peter Huston, produced an hour long documentary about Emma called Trail Magic.

Artificial Intelligence Can Help Leaders Make Better Decisions Faster

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. August 15, 2018 Decision-making remains one of the ultimate tests for leadership in new entrepreneurs. Even experienced leaders who have a track record of sound decision-making have, at some point, made a drastically poor decision that shook their reputation.As the talk about AI promises a radical transformation of the organization, leaders are especially curious to know if it will make it easier for them. While a lot of them are excited, some of them don’t want decision-making made easier. Their ability to make sound decisions without complex technology is the very foundation of their reputation as good leaders.Related: Why ‘Cognitive Computing’ Is the Next Big Thing for Business GrowthThe good news is that AI is quite unlikely to make it easier for decision makers as they’ll be required to input judgment in the machine predictions. As the real impact remains to be seen, there are ways in which AI is set to inevitably affect business decision-making.1. Prediction.                                   Through data mining, many businesses are already using predictive analytics to make better decisions. Predictive analytics allows businesses to anticipate events by looking at a data set and trying to guess accurately what will happen at a certain time in the future.AI brings with it machine learning, another technique used in predictive analytics. The variation is that while data mining involves merely identifying patterns in large data sets, in machine learning, machines are not just designed to learn from the data, they are also built to react to it by themselves.With the information provided, decisions can be made on such issues as:Which ads are served based on cost-effectiveness and potential ROIHow to optimize the buyer journey by analyzing consumer behaviorHow to reduce customer churnHow achievable are the set goals 2. Less decision fatigue.Various psychological studies have shown that when we’re faced with many decisions to make within a short period of time, quality declines because we gradually deplete our mental energy.A case application of this is when supermarkets place candy and snacks at the cash register. Marketers know you’ll be making decisions throughout your short shopping trip and will be less likely to resist the sugar rush by the time you’re done. But you know who can resist the sugar? A machine.Algorithms, not prone to decision fatigue, can make an infinite number of decisions per day, each as accurate as possible. Executives who use AI will be at an advantage by using it to bypass human weakness.Related: The Sooner You Get Your First AI Job, the Better for Your Career3. Multi-tasking.When making complex decisions, executives typically need to look at a set of different factors. Where there’s too much data to be considered, the decision-maker may get overwhelmed, leading to disastrous decisions.On the contrary, a machine can easily handle multiple inputs without exhaustion or confusion. All that’s needed is a set of instructions or programs that guide the machine to use probability and suggest or implement the most logical decision.4. Better human judgment.Until we can instill emotional intelligence in AI, the human will be the one to make judgment calls. Sure, a machine can be left to make decisions on simpler tasks that don’t require emotional intelligence and experience — two factors that form the basis of judgment in business. But for the more critical ones where the probability and cost of a mistake is high, a human is needed. As argued by Ajay A., Joshua G. and Avi G., the ability to make trade-offs when necessary is another important aspect in good judgment that cannot be left to AI. This is because it requires an insider understanding of the organization in terms of values, goals and risks to give sound judgment.But AI can and should still be part of making judgment. Its role is to provide the human with all the facts and possible outcomes or predictions.5. Deciding who gets the job, if anyone.To find the best person for the job, the hiring manager needs to go through the pool of applicants and vet each one individually. But who has time for that when there are so many applicants? AI does.In the future, HR will be able to actually select the best candidate from all applicants by automating most of the responsibilities that make the process slow and inefficient. Machines will sift through hundreds of CVs to find the best, analyze online activity and find out enough information about them to suggest the best.With the mundane tasks out of the way and facts already compared for them, all the hiring manager will need to do is use their judgment to make the best decision.Related: 6 Common Hiring Practice With Unintentional BiasConclusion.Lots of exciting changes are on the horizon. While AI might not necessarily make the process easier, it’s going to significantly contribute towards streamlining decisions for better processes and an agile future organization.

Did you accept If yes why and can you quantify them; if no why not All meetings with President Yar’Adua were discussions towards finding a just solution to the never ending circle of violence in the Niger delta He promised to do all in his power to justly address the concerns of the people of the Niger delta and he was doing just that before his death What were the promises he made vis-à-vis the Niger Delta struggle And did you think he was going to keep to his promises President Yar’Adua explained the complications involved in repealing legislations which robbed the people of the Niger delta of their land and promised measures to alleviate the suffering of the Niger Delta people and policies intended to promote participation of Niger Delta communities in the oil industry President Yar’Adua never ruled out the possibility of national dialogue aimed at restoring the stolen lands of the people of the Niger Delta and other parts of Nigeria His death prevented his sincerity from being tested It’s been three years or so since the general amnesty was offered What’s your assessment of it My understanding is that thousands of youths are being sent abroad for training President Jonathan’s demobilization program has no direction and is a massive fraud on Nigerians in several ways Firstly he is promising the country peace in the Niger delta without addressing the underlying factors responsible for militancy Secondly those benefiting from President Jonathan’s misuse of public funds were not involved in the armed struggle Virtually all fighters who partook in the attacks subsiding in 2009 are in the cities of the Niger Delta or re-armed and in the creeks so who is Jonathan’s government training in universities abroad Presently there are ten times more camps than existed in 2009 and a steady influx of weapons into the creeks and cities of the region Nigerians should wait a few months or one year at the most to test President Jonathan’s boast to having achieved an enduring peace in the Niger Delta The military avoids explaining to Nigerians that “bunkering” is facilitated by well-armed militia groups which have taken over territories previously occupied by those commanders now hiding in Abuja If these ex-commanders had any sort of control over their former territories there would be no need for security contracts or the re-equipping and strengthening of the JTF Piracy abductions for ransom hijacking of vessels carrying refined products and criminality is on the rise Oil industry vessels and trawlers now pay toll daily to traverse the territories of new commanders and it is only a matter of time before the delta re-erupts How did you feel after the untimely death of President Yar’Adua After his passing did you reach out to his family I had no direct access to Mr Yar’Adua’s family but extended my sympathy to them through a few of his close aides who I met on my earlier visits to Aso Rock Upon the death of President Yar’Adua I sensed that the Niger Delta and Nigerians were in big trouble President Jonathan though from the region to this day does not understand the problems of the people and how to solve them Goodluck Jonathan has adopted tactics employed by President Obasanjo such as bribing a few people; arresting dissenters and suppressing the media and news from the Niger Delta to create the illusion of peace in the region These short term measures are intended to mislead Nigerians long enough for President Jonathan to complete a term in office if possible All his policies relating to the Niger Delta do not in any way address the root cause of agitation; but rather reward violence and those engaged in violence as a means to seeking justice in the delta If President Jonathan survives a full term in office he will be bequeathing to his successor a worse Niger Delta than he inherited What in your opinion are the fundamental differences between Yar’Adua and Jonathan I did not know President Yar’Adua well enough to compare him with Jonathan I however believe him (Yar’Adua) to have been sincere in his intentions for Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan on the other hand I know to be lacking in initiative He is indecisive vindictive and sometimes petty President Jonathan relies heavily on gossip in making major policy decisions and is unable to form an independent unsentimental and unbiased opinion on any serious matter Several media houses at home and abroad have reported that you are a member and also the leader of MEND Are you a member of MEND and are you its leader Labeling me the leader of MEND is a gross misrepresentation of my contribution to our struggle If I am the leader of any one group how will I be able to get the ears of a rival group It suits the Nigerian government to brand me as the leader of MEND whilst trying to imprison me in South Africa In the same breath they present people to the local and international media as leaders of the same group when claiming to be in good relations with all armed agitators in the region As I have maintained I am respected by a great majority of true fighters in the Niger Delta — not the politicians paraded as fighters by President Jonathan I can with little effort access every weapon bearing individual in the Delta due to the respect they have for my continued contribution to the fight for justice in our land Fighters in the Niger Delta should be proud of their achievements so far and should never be deceived into believing that attacks on invaders and military occupiers amount to terrorism No In light of recent bombings of communities in the Delta and other unprovoked attacks by the Nigerian military communities and militia groups are wisely preparing better for the foreseeable confrontation with the Nigerian military and oil companies Are you responsible for the Independence Day Bombings in Abuja If not then who or what groups do you suppose is responsible for the bombings This question should be directed at President Jonathan He has repeatedly claimed to know those responsible for the Abuja bombings and their reasons for carrying out the bombings of October 1 2010 Remember President Jonathan also publicly exonerated me of complicity in these attacks My lawyers hope to obtain a statement from President Jonathan to be used during my trial proper He may have immunity in Nigerian courts but must defend himself here If President Zuma can appear in court in South Africa so can President Jonathan or at least he can provide a notarized statement to be used in my trial You’ve said elsewhere that the charges against you (by the Nigerian government) were all false: made up charges Why would the Jonathan government want to frame and destroy you What would he and his government gain by so doing Goodluck Jonathan is fearful of being exposed by me in many ways and believes it safe to keep me locked up far away from home Though the South African government is acting as a henchman of Goodluck Jonathan South African courts are not Nigerian courts and I am not James Ibori I am confident I will be freed eventually One of those on trial in Nigeria Edmund Ebiware was arrested on October 2 2010 at the Bolingo Hotel by the SSS for failing to provide them with information which they hoped would have prevented the bombings of October 1 2010 This young man (Ebiware) had for sometimes been supplying false intelligence on me to the SSS for a fee even though I have never met him This practice which is common and usually requires the connivance of an insider in the security services is termed “networking” He had also claimed to the director general of the SSS to be close to MEND Upon his arrest the SSS discovered in his car documents incriminating President?
