UN partnership with advertisers brings African hunger into Japanese homes

“We are profoundly grateful to the Japan Advertising Council for the genuine extraordinary partnership with WFP in support of our school feeding initiatives,” World Food Programme (WFP) Director for Japan Mihoko Tamamura said today in welcoming the year-long extension of the partnership through the Council’s prestigious public service announcement (PSA) campaign.“The PSA campaign will remind us of millions of children in the world quietly suffering from malnutrition.”The value of the campaign is estimated as over $30 million a year and the new PSA will be broadcast and placed through TV, radio, print media, and billboards from the beginning of July. One of the world’s largest advertising companies, Dentsu, designed and produced the PSA. Shooting took place at a primary school in Mozambique where WFP provides meals affording the children better nutrition and a better chance for education. Students appear and sing in the PSA, with the main theme being the “twig for life.” Narration is provided by the famous Japanese actress, Yuriko Ishida. In 2004, WFP provided 16.6 million children with school meals in 72 countries and aims to reach 50 million children by the end of 2007. In poor countries free, nutritious school meals attract children to school, as well as enhance their performance by allowing them to concentrate on their lessons. School meals also target children in which are being devastated by HIV/AIDS rates, including Mozambique where some 300,000 schoolchildren are assisted by WFP at present. read more

Assassination attempt prompts UN call for protection of human rights defenders in

Pierre Claver Mbonimpa was shot and wounded by unknown assailants in the capital, Bujumbura, on Monday. The attack was strongly condemned by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as well as the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).“The attempted killing of such a highly respected activist as Mr. Mbonimpa sends a very chilling message to all members of civil society and also the entire population,” the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, Michel Forst, warned in a press release.“The Burundian authorities should make it clear that such heinous attacks will not be tolerated and do their utmost to protect human rights defenders from future attacks,” he stressed, calling for immediate protection to be provided to Mr. Mbonimpa during his recovery in the hospital.Mr. Forst also urged an independent and impartial investigation so that perpetrators are brought to justice with due regard to fair trial standards.As President of the Association for the Protection of Human Rights and Incarcerated Persons (APRODH), Mr. Mbonimpa has a longstanding record of advocating for the rights of prisoners and fighting against torture in Burundi. His work has been recognized internationally by human rights awards.Mr. Mbonimpa has spoken out publicly about controversial issues, including on the recent presidential elections in the country, leading to his arrest and prolonged detention in 2014 and again in April 2015.“I met Mr. Mbonimpa on several occasions during my visit to Burundi in November 2014, and he struck me as one of the most courageous and respected human rights defenders in the country. The other defenders that I met with referred to him respectfully as ‘The Senior’ (‘Le Doyen’),” the Special Rapporteur said. “Together with other experts from the UN human rights system, we have repeatedly communicated our grave concerns to the Government about Mr. Mbonimpa’s situation and urged an immediate halt to such intimidating and harassing acts.”Mr. Forst’s statement has been endorsed by the UN Special Rapporteurs on freedom of opinion and expression, David Kaye; on freedom of peaceful assembly and association, Maina Kiai; on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence, Pablo de Greiff; and Seong-Phil Hong, who currently heads the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention. Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back, in an unpaid capacity, on specific human rights themes. read more

Davidson Basketballs Sixth Man The Math Department

Earlier this week, we read with interest in The New York Times that Davidson College’s math department is helping its men’s basketball team win games. Since this combines three of our favorite subjects — sports, math and using math to win at sports — I asked Tim Chartier, a professor in Davidson’s mathematics and computer science department, to elaborate on the unusual partnership between his department and the Wildcats.He was understandably reluctant to spill too many details — particularly regarding how the math department analyzed the data about Iowa, Davidson’s round-of-64 opponent in the NCAA tournament Friday, or Gonzaga and North Dakota State, one of which Davidson will face if it reaches the round of 32 and both of which he’d already started scouting. But Chartier did shed a little more light on the math behind the surprise Atlantic 10 champs. And it sounds a lot like what we do at FiveThirtyEight, except with a goal of winning basketball games instead of writing articles about winning basketball games. Here are edited excerpts of his reply:So, what do we offer the coaches?Heat maps: Two members of Cats Stats, as we call our group, track the games for heat maps. They mark who takes a shot and estimate the location by clicking a computer program that I wrote. Then, as you see, regions of the court are marked as hot and cold regions. Two members of the group met with coaches in January and went through heat maps not just at the team level but player level and then various combinations of players. The coaches found this very helpful and discovered things that led them to analyze player combinations with similar tendencies that they then recognized.Lineup efficiencies: Here we show Dean Oliver’s Four Factors for offense and defense for every five-man lineup and the total amount of time that lineup has been used. Then, we also found various subsets of lineups, as well, like guard trios and forward pairs. For example, we might see that two big men are most efficient/inefficient when in the game together.Personal scouting: Here we produce a detailed breakdown of players’ tendencies and how well they performed in each aspect of the game. Here no new statistics were created. We presented data and numbers so that the coaching staff could easily implement the reports into their game plan. It could range from things like whether or not a player liked to shoot off the dribble and how effective they were in those situations to things like how effective a player might score driving left out of isolation situations. Said another way, we look for the tendencies in the numbers, especially outlier numbers. We think of these as creating data points or dots. Then, we dig into the video that accompany these stats on Synergy and figure out the story/tendency behind the number. That gives context and, in a sense, connects the dots. For example, if a player drives to the right 80 percent of the time and scores much better than going left, that is important. But, then the video can help see that his first step when driving is quicker going right than left, allowing him to beat his man more often. read more

How Bots Can Benefit Businesses According to Messengers Director of Global Partnerships

first_img 8 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Bots are the talk of the town, and Anand Chandrasekaran is helping to create the buzz. The former CPO of both SnapDeal and Bharti Airtel, the third largest mobile provider in the world, has plenty of experience with big ideas and global strategy. But he has really been stretching his wings as Global Director of Platforms and Product Partnerships for Messenger at Facebook. With the integration of open-API bots into Messenger, Facebook’s marketing strategy has changed considerably, and Chandrasekaran was kind enough to share some of those thoughts with me.In part two of a two-part, in-person interview, I asked Chandrasekaran about how businesses can best benefit from chatbot technology, and to share some of the use cases he’s seen that have stood out as the most innovative and successful.Newlands: How can businesses and entrepreneurs benefit from understanding how bots work with Messenger?Chandrasekaran: The bot can be the solution, but that’s after first defining what the problem is.If you’re a brand, entrepreneur or developer — using those words interchangeably — there are over 1.2 billion monthly users on Messenger, and they are using Messenger for a greater amount of time every day.If you’re an entrepreneur, this is a platform that you can’t afford to ignore. The way we think about it is, it’s your customers who are on that platform. Wherever you are on that spectrum, if you’re a developer, a brand, or selling a digital service, it’s your customers, fans and users who are on that platform. That is the main benefit for anyone who is looking at Messenger.Related: Top 10 Best Chatbot Platform Tools to Build Chatbots for Your BusinessNewlands: It seems that some bots struggle to be an effective and engaging experience – why is this? And what are solutions for that?Chandrasekaran: I wouldn’t necessarily define this notion as “struggling”, but I will say that when the purpose of the bot is not well-defined, it leaves the user with too many options. Like I said before, our best practices for developers is to always to start with a problem to solve, because when you define the problem very clearly, it becomes very obvious what part of makes sense to automate. That’s when AI functions very well.One of my favorite bots is called Brew the Way; they’ve had iterations of the the bot where it says, “Do you want to buy a coffee, or do you want to fool around?” The joke is that almost everyone who uses a bot wants to trick the bot into doing something silly — it’s everyone’s favorite trick. But what we find is when the goal is clearer, the bot does the fantastic job. So when the bot introduces an experience like, “If you want to order a coffee, here are three steps, but if you want to just play around, we can take you there.” Then they do fantastic job of setting expectations clearly and creating an experience of play that’s fun and engaging for the user, rather than making the bot completely open-ended.Related: How to Create a Facebook Messenger Chatbot For Free Without CodingNewlands: What are some of the advantages that AI and bots provide for businesses? Chandrasekaran: AI allows people to solve basic problems. Sometimes people ask some very basic questions, many of them repetitive, and those are problems best suited for AI to solve. Especially where there is training data available, and there is a use case that is fairly repetitive on top of that training data; even something like, “Are you open right now?” That’s a fairly easy question for an automated system to answer without a human getting involved.One compelling success story is Globe Telecom in the Philippines. They have a hybrid bot called Gie that they’ve given a personality, a woman with a playful nature. When people ask the most obvious questions like, “Can you show me what my balance is,” or “What are your most popular plans,” those don’t necessary need to be escalated to a live person, because they will probably give the same answer. They’ve built an AI layer to respond to those questions promptly. Gie also has the ability to know when the question is a bit personalized or complicated, and can say, “Can you hold on a bit while I ask for a live person?” The question is passed thoughtfully to a human, and then the human can answer the question and pass control back to the bot. What we find is these kinds of purpose-built AI end up being super valuable for developers.You may know that about 15 or 16 months ago we acquired a NLP engine called wit.ai which we use for basic heuristics and basic NLP. It is doing extremely well, and powering a large chunk of AI and NLP today on top of Messenger.Related: 7 Ways Chatbots Can Benefit Your Marketing StrategyNewlands: What about sales?Chandrasekaran: With sales we try to narrow the definition of the problem even more. Sales for a developer is customer acquisition; sales for a commerce provider is revenue; sales for someone who tries to generate awareness is like someone coming back and re-engaging. What we try to do is, regardless of the size of partners or the entrepreneurs that we speak with, we try to sculpt the problem down to: What is the problem statement, and what does success look like? Because the more generic the problem, the harder it is to measure if the project was successful or not.Related: Social Media Marketing Strategies With ChatbotsNewlands: Where are customers engaging with Messenger and what are the business cases of engaging with Messenger? How do you see people do that?Chandrasekaran: If you look at the funnel of interacting with customers, they are engaging throughout that funnel, depending on where you slice it. On the top end of the funnel it’s just generating awareness. At Facebook, we talk about this “generating awareness” case study of Call of Duty. They created a Messenger experience when they launched the game where you answered a bunch of questions in character and in the same language as the game, and if you answered all those questions correctly, you got an unlock code to see the trailer of the next game. If you are Call of Duty fan, it’s awesome that you got an exclusive piece of content for engaging with the Messenger bot. It was purely awareness generation, just to create buzz for the game coming out, and they were able to see about 6 million messages within 24 hours of launching the game, purely with the bot from Messenger.Similarly, we have seen companies like Swelly and SnapTravel succeed on Messenger. They’ve gotten to a place where they are primarily focusing on Messenger as the only thing on which they spend developmental resources. This is, of course, music to our ears, because when you think about where you’re going to find your first five to 10 million users, you can’t put too many of your eggs in one basket or you get into an iteration cycle. It’s great that they choose Messenger, because consumers are there and they are looking for great experiences. These companies are getting a lot of success both in terms of user growth as well as revenue on the platform.The last use case I see towards the second half of the cycle is customer care. The comparison between calling a number, being on hold, and giving them a lot of context information and just pinging a business on Messenger to get a response back is incredible. The awesome thing is that messaging between two people doesn’t need to be synchronous. A customer can go and get dinner and come back to respond to the message, or the agent could look it up, take five minutes and respond. It’s not like they need to respond right away on the phone, so it plays with human nature a bit more and it’s also super convenient. From an agent or call center perspective, we have a couple case studies — like Rogers Telecom in Canada. They actually got a 65% increase in CSAT by using Messenger as a channel.If you look at awareness generation, enabling new functionality, acquiring customers, and well as customer care, those are the four top areas where businesses can really utilize Messenger. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global April 21, 2017 Register Now »last_img read more

The Bible might have originally been fine with gay sex

Those two lines are the ones that ban incest between two men. Evidence, Dershowitz writes, that a later author touched them up.‘This editor’s decision to neutralize old laws by writing new glosses, instead of deleting the laws altogether, is serendipitous: He left behind just enough clues for his handiwork to be perceptible,’ he wrote.‘Using these few bits of text to justify bigotry is irresponsible’ John Pavlovitz, a Christian preacher, believes religious people should not use the Bible to attack LGBTI people.‘Using these few bits of text to justify discrimination and bigotry is reckless and irresponsible,’ he wrote in an op-ed for Gay Star News.‘We don’t rely on the Bible to understand gender identity and sexual orientation for the same reason we don’t rely on a 2,000 year old medical text to understand the circulatory system, or use ancient hieroglyphics to understand the Cosmos.’Got a news tip?

It also bans having sex with a woman while she is on her period.‘No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations.

The Cardinals traded away leading rusher Tim Hightower, in a way to make room for the rookie, and he’s expected to pair with Beanie Wells and provide the team with a solid running game, the likes of which they’ve rarely had in the desert. “They opened a pathway for me, and if I don’t perform and if I don’t do what I need to do to get on the field then I’m going to look bad and it’s going to make them look bad too,” Williams said. “So I don’t want anybody looking bad.”In fact, the only ones Williams wants to make look bad are the teams that didn’t draft him. Incidentally, that would be every other team in the league. Good news for the Cardinals, bad for the teams on their schedule.“Just defenses in general, I just want to make them sick that they passed up,” he said. “Me playing football, I always play with a chip on my shoulder, so if you’re an opposing team I’m going to have to try and run my hardest against you.” ArizonaSports.com’s Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this report Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’center_img Top Stories What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Ryan Williams may have been a surprise pick for the Cardinals when they nabbed him with the 38th overall selection back in April’s draft, but once a Cardinal Williams wanted to be just that: a Cardinal.The NFL’s lockout delayed the process, but Williams and the team finally agreed to terms Sunday and now the former Virginia Tech star is, well, pleased to be with his new teammates.“I’m very excited, I feel like a little kid out here,” he said. “Seeing Larry Fitzgerald, [Darnell] Dockett, I mean guys like that, I was watching them, playing with them on games and now I’m with these guys.last_img read more
