Leading education advocate and former CNN and NBC anchor Campbell Brown today announced the creation of The Seventy Four, a non-profit, nonpartisan online newsroom aimed at driving a much-needed conversation about reforming America’s education system.The site, which will officially launch in mid-July, will pursue stories about the education of our 74 million children in honest, fearless, and relentless terms in an effort to turn the tide and reinstate the U.S. as the global education leader.“The future of our country is predicated on a strong education system that serves all 74 million of America’s children. Unfortunately, for far too long, special interests have prioritized their own needs over the well-being of our students and have not been held accountable,” Campbell Brown said. “We are long overdue for an honest conversation about what works and what doesn’t work. That’s why we started The Seventy Four, a newsroom with an unapologetic point of view that will serve as a platform for those without a voice.”The Seventy Four will be led by Editorial Director Steven Snyder, former Assistant Managing Editor at TIME Magazine. Snyder and a team of experienced journalists will conduct hard-hitting investigations, provide provocative analysis, and develop cutting-edge multimedia content, which will break through the clutter of stale education news and make an impact.Regular contributors to the site will include Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Cynthia Tucker, who previously served as a columnist for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; Michelle Bernard, president and CEO of the Bernard Center for Women, Politics & Public Policy, a leading think-tank focused on domestic and foreign policy matters; and Conor Williams, senior researcher at New America’s Early Education Initiative.“By digging deep to uncover the facts, The Seventy Four will bring the truth about America’s education system to light,” said Romy Drucker, co-founder and CEO of The Seventy Four. “And by not being afraid to take a stand on issues that are controversial and polarizing, The Seventy Four will be a driving force in inspiring others to demand change.”The Seventy Four’s Board of Directors includes: Jonathan Perelman of Buzzfeed, Truex founder Joe Marchese, Howard Wolfson of Bloomberg Philanthropies, Andy Rotherham of Real Clear Education and author and journalist Jonathan Alter.To find out more, visit www.the74million.org. read more
New Delhi: Lenders, led by the SBI, are trying to revive debt-laden Jet Airways by change in management as they feel collapse of the airline will not be good for consumers and competition, a source said after the SBI chief met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Wednesday. With Jet flying just about a third of its fleet, defaulting on interest payments and delaying salaries to pilot, State Bank of India Chairman Rajnish Kumar along with Aviation Secretary Pradip Singh Kharola and Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Nripendra Misra met Jaitley Wednesday afternoon. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalKumar said the meeting was to apprise the government, which is an important stakeholder, about the happenings in what was once India’s second-biggest airline, and not to discuss a bailout package. He, however, emphatically stated that it was in the interest of the lenders and consumers to keep Jet Airways flying, and dragging the debt-ridden firm under bankruptcy proceedings is the last option. Jet Airways has a debt of over Rs 8,200 crore and needs to make repayments of up to Rs 1,700 crore by the end of March. In case the airline collapses, 23,000 jobs would be at stake. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostThough Kumar refused to share details of the lenders’ resolution plan, the source said that the lenders have proposed to change the management of the beleaguered air carrier as they feel it is not possible to run the company with present management. Jet Airways is headed by Naresh Goyal, who currently holds 51 per cent stake. Abu Dhabi based Etihad Airways has 24 per cent. There were media reports that Etihad has approached the SBI to purchase its 24 per cent stake in the airline. On getting a new player in Jet Airways, Kumar said, “No possibility is ruled out”. “The dialogue with Etihad is on. It is not that they have conclusively decided that they will go out. But there are certain conditions which they want to be fulfilled and it is nothing but that the airline should be professionally managed and without any interference,” he said. Lenders of Jet Airways have been working on a resolution plan for last five months and it is almost ready, Kumar said, adding “We will make every effort to keep Jet Airways flying and in no manner it is a bailout for any individual or any promoter whatsoever”. The SBI chief said that resolution of a service industry, like airline, is nearly impossible under Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) and is the last option. read more

MILWAUKEE — The Latest on sentencing for a British cybersecurity expert who pleaded guilty to creating malware (all times local):12:50 p.m.A British cybersecurity expert credited with helping stop a worldwide computer virus in May 2017 won’t serve any additional time behind bars for creating malware years before he won international acclaim.U.S. District Judge J.P. Stadtmueller sentenced 25-year-old Marcus Hutchins on Friday in Milwaukee to time served, with a year of supervised release. Stadtmueller said the virus Hutchins helped stop was far more damaging than the malware he wrote.Hutchins pleaded guilty in May to developing and conspiring to distribute malware called Kronos from 2012 to 2015. Prosecutors dismissed eight charges in exchange for his plea.Hutchins’ arrest in Las Vegas in 2017 came as a shock. Just months earlier he was hailed as a hero for finding a “kill switch” to the WannaCry virus that crippled computers worldwide.He had faced up to 10 years in prison, but prosecutors had credited Hutchins with taking responsibility for his actions. Hutchins served just a few days in jail before being freed on bail, but had to remain in the U.S. while his case was pending.___MidnightA British cybersecurity expert credited with stopping a worldwide computer virus in 2017 is about to learn his sentence for creating malware designed to steal banking information.Marcus Hutchins appears in federal court in Milwaukee on Friday. He pleaded guilty in May to conspiring to distribute malware called Kronos from 2012 to 2015. Prosecutors dismissed eight charges in exchange for his plea.He faces up 10 years in prison but could receive a more lenient sentence for accepting responsibility. Prosecutors aren’t making a sentencing recommendation but say in a filing ahead of the hearing Friday that it “should be sufficient, though not greater than necessary.”Hutchins’ arrest in Las Vegas in 2017 came as a shock.

The United Nations and Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government (TFG) have signed an action plan on ending the killing and maiming children in the Horn of Africa country.Signed on Monday by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, Hussein Arab Isse, on behalf of the TFG, and the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative for Somalia, Peter de Clercq, on behalf of the United Nations, the plan commits the Somali National Armed Forces, allied militia and military groups under its control to ending the killing and maiming of children in contravention of international law. “We are calling on donors to support the Somali Government and its armed forces towards bringing about and enforcing the changes that will put these terrible practices to an end,” Mr. de Clercq said in a news release issued by the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS).The plan is the second one signed between the TFG and United Nations that helps bring about measures to halt and prevent the violation of children’s rights. The first action plan – to end the recruitment and use of children by the Somali National Armed Forces – was agreed on by the TFG in July. According to UNPOS, full compliance with the latest action plan will result in the Government of Somalia being removed from Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s list of parties who recruit, use, kill and maim children. read more
Power and automation technology group ABB has launched its SmartVentilation system for mines. ABB’s SmartVentilation is described as “a complete solution to the challenge of providing fresh air and venting toxic gases from subterranean mines.” It also minimises energy use by ventilating only those areas of a mine that require it. ABB estimates that this ability to work “on-demand” could reduce an operator’s electricity bill by up to half.The SmartVentilation is divided into three “implementation levels”, SmartBasic, SmartMid and SmartPerfect. These give different degrees of control over the operation of the mine’s intake and exhaust fans. Mine operators have the option of installing one implantation level and then upgrading it at their own pace. The fans and their drives come in modular form and are controlled with ABB’s System 800xA, the world-class industrial automation platform. This provides operators, engineers and mine managers with an easy way to supervise and control the ventilation system, either from a central location or using mobile devices.Patrik Westerlund, Global Product Manager for integrated mine automation at ABB, said: “The SmartVentilation is a state-of-the-art control solution for mine ventilation that was built to be easy to use and maintain during the lifetime of the mine.” ABB states that its worldwide service organisation has a strong local presence, “and will make sure that the customers’ ventilation systems run as effectively and efficiently as possible.” read more

If you’ve ever found yourself in the middle of the impossible decision of choosing between iOS and Android for the first time, you see just how exciting a time it is for the mobile industry. Samsung and Apple seem to be the heavyweights right now, and the new Galaxy S4 is more than enough to give Apple something to worry about.Apple and Samsung both have phones that exist on nearly every network in the world, but for the purposes of this comparison we’re going to be looking at the Verizon Wireless variant of the iPhone 5 C$269.63 at Amazon and the Samsung Galaxy S4 just to make sure things are as fair as possible. These two LTE superphones are easily the best of their breed, but which of the two offers the best overall experience?Are you case sensitive?We’ve reached a point where smartphone manufacturers are unable to sell a smartphone solely using its spec sheet. The experience offered by the operating system, the app ecosystem, and whatever exclusive features are what drives competition today. That doesn’t mean that specs don’t matter at all, especially when you are looking for a phone to perform well throughout a whole day, offer superior functionality on a WiFi or mobile network, or be able to function with the current and next generation of accessories. Out of context, a spec sheet isn’t helpful anymore. When you compare phones that are able to offer similar features, however, the spec sheet could be what acts as the final push to choose one over the other.If you are looking for the best phone to fit in your pocket (or in your hand if you’ve got small hands) the iPhone 5 is undoubtedly better than the Galaxy S4. It’s lighter, thinner, and the display just over an inch smaller overall on the diagonal. The iPhone 5 was the first 4-inch phone Apple released, even though the rest of the mobile industry has been leaning towards larger and larger phones. The Galaxy S4’s 4.99-inch screen makes the whole phone noticeably larger than the iPhone 5, but it is also just slightly thicker.The Apple’s case features an aluminum body with a slightly textured coating, while Samsung’s is a glossy plastic, again with a slight texture. These handsets both look and feel very different — Apple’s glass-and-metal mix vs. Samsung’s high-tech polycarbonate.Specs absolutely matterUnder the hood, Samsung and Apple are nothing alike. Apple’s dual-core A6 processor clocked at 1.2GHz certainly feels like more than enough for the handheld computer, but Samsung’s 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 is an incredibly powerful chip capable of much more. Samsung also includes twice the RAM as the iPhone, while the GPUs offer a comparable experience in daily usage. Both of these phones also offer the highest quality mobile radios, capable of a diverse collection of network types. Their Bluetooth and storage options are identical, though the Galaxy S4 allows for an additional 64GB of storage.The only other area on the spec sheet Samsung and Apple differ is the inclusion of an IR blaster and the availability of 802.11AC for the S4.More than Retina, for what it’s worthThe screen is typically the most important part of a smartphone, and in this area Samsung and Apple have always been different. Apple’s LED-backlit IPS LCD and Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays each offer an amazing experience, but nothing ever really looks exactly the same on these displays. Apple’s LCD technology washes out in direct sunlight, but offers an unparalleled experience in terms of viewing angles. Samsung’s screens are amazing in direct sunlight, and their rich colors and deep blacks offer a great viewing experience, but their use of the PenTile display matrix is often off-putting for many.Whatever your thoughts on the screen technology, there’s no arguing which is the more impressive experience. The iPhone 5’s 1136 x 640 resolution Retina display offers 326 ppi. On that 4-inch screen, Apple’s software makes everything look amazing despite the low resolution. Samsung’s latest display is 1920×1080 (that’s 1080p) at 441 ppi, which is a significant increase over any display currently being used by Apple. The Super AMOLED display in the Galaxy S4 is the first of its kind, and stands proud next to the iPhone 5’s smaller display.The more powerful processor, and larger screen size undoubtedly takes its toll when it comes to battery life. Apple’s phones aren’t exactly known for being able to get you through a whole day without the need to charge, the iPhone 5’s 1440mAh battery is more capable than most. Samsung’s 2600mAh battery is a bump from last year’s model, but there’s still a lot going on that can drain the battery. Fortunately for S4 owners the battery is removable, and a larger battery can be installed. In contrast, Apple’s phones are sealed, which helps the design, but means you’re on your own when the battery gets low.Ecosystem and Apps: It’s all about preferenceAccess to apps is incredibly important, but we’ve pretty much reached a point where Apple and Google are able to offer the same app experience. Both of their stores are growing at an exponential rate, and most companies release apps for both platforms on the same day. There are a few outliers, and depending on what you do that may make all the difference in the world, but most people can pick up either an Android phone or an iPhone and get by pretty easily.What makes both the iPhone and the Galaxy S4 unique are the experiences that only they offer. Apple’s exclusives are pretty well known. If you get roped into iTunes, iCloud, Siri, or any of Apple’s exclusive apps, you’ll have a hard time finding anything like them on another platform. Samsung’s exclusives are pretty new, and not really all that well known. The Dual Camera modes offer one of a kind photography and video experience, making it possible to use both the front and the rear camera simultaneously. If you’ve got multiple people using Galaxy S4s, you can link them all together and play the same song simultaneously. All these small features might not sound like much on their own, but in combination Samsung has built a powerful array of software into this smartphone.Both phones offer a wireless streaming system, and while Miracast and Allshare are more functional than Airplay, Samsung can’t compete with how easy it is to set up Apple’s offering.In the end, the experience you create on these phones is all about choice. Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is clearly the more powerful phone, and the hardware is clearly designed to remain relevant for quite a while. The iPhone 5 is just barely 6 months old, and Apple is already far behind in the hardware game — Samsung’s previous model, the Galaxy S3 $10.99 at Amazon, was enough to compete with the iPhone 5. As long as you aren’t tied to the Apple ecosystem already, the Galaxy S4 will be able to offer you much more than the iPhone is capable of.Now read: Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S3: More than a number bump read more

Under two-thirds (60%) of overall critical illness claims made in 2016 were for cancer, according to research by Aegon UK.Its analysis of critical illness claims received by Aegon UK in 2016 also found that 31% of cancer-related critical illness claims in 2016 were for breast cancer, compared to 31% in 2015 and 35% in 2007.The research also found:18.5% of critical illness claims in 2016 were for breast cancer. This compares to 20% in 2015 and 22% in 2007.£5.4 million was paid out for breast cancer critical illness claims in 2016, and the average pay out was £70,981. This compares to £6 million that was paid out for these claims in 2015, and £3.3 million that was paid out for breast cancer critical illness claims in 2007.£54.6 million has been paid out to nearly 700 women diagnosed with breast cancer over the last 10 years.In 2015, 65% of all critical illness claims paid by Aegon UK were related to cancer, compared to 63% in 2007.The average age of claimant for a breast cancer critical illness claim was 49-years-old in 2016, and the youngest claimant was 37 years of age. In 2015, the youngest claimant was 31, and in 2007, a 24-year-old was the youngest employee to make a breast cancer claim.3.6% of life claims paid in 2016 were due to breast cancer.Simon Jacobs, head of underwriting and claims strategy at Aegon UK, said: “Back in 2013 we reported that breast cancer was our biggest single cause of critical illness claims in 2012; this remains the case.“In the last 10 years Aegon has provided financial support to around 700 women diagnosed with breast cancer, paying £54.6 million in critical illness claims to help them through their diagnosis and treatment. Early detection and better treatment means that survival rates after a diagnosis of breast cancer are improving. This is clearly reflected by the consistent number of claims for breast cancer and also creates a stronger case around the importance of critical illness cover.“Treatment of breast cancer often involves surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy or all three. It’s a difficult time for sufferers and their families and with this in mind, we make the claims process as simple and quick as possible.” read more
