FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The BC Wildfire Service says that the combination of thunderstorms and dry conditions has caused several wildfires to erupt north of Fort St. John.According to the manager of the Buffalo Inn in Pink Mountain, the fire was first noticed at around 1:00 Thursday afternoon and has since grown at a rapid pace. The fire is said to be burning around five kilometres from the community. A photo of the fire that erupted near Pink Mountain on Thursday afternoon. Submitted photo A photo of the fire that erupted near Pink Mountain on Thursday afternoon. Submitted photo Fire Information Officer Amanda Reynolds said that the fire is currently estimated at 10 hectares in size, and is being fuelled by the tinder-dry conditions in the area. She said that an air tanker has been deployed to try and box the fire in with retardant while firefighters travel to begin battling the fire from the ground. A map of lightning strikes in B.C. at 2:40 p.m. Thursday.

Saskatchewan released regulations Wednesday that will require industry to reduce methane emissions by 4.5 million tonnes annually by 2025.The regulations include penalties for non-compliance. “The prime minister has been gracious with his time when I’ve requested the opportunity to speak with him by telephone or in person and I’m appreciative of that,” he said.The premier has previously suggested the federal carbon tax is one of the biggest economic headwinds facing Saskatchewan.Moe has asked the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal to rule on whether the federal government’s plan to impose a carbon tax on the province is constitutional.The province argues its own climate change plan, which doesn’t include a carbon levy, is enough to reduce emissions. The two did not meet when Trudeau was in Regina earlier this month, but the prime minister said it was good to meet the premier in La Loche.“We are going to continue to work on issues that matter to folks in Saskatchewan,” he said.Moe, who indicated they only talked briefly, said they discussed supports both governments are providing to communities.Trudeau went on to highlight the work by both governments that helped lead to the creation of 11,000 new jobs in the province.“That is something that governments can facilitate when we invest in the right kinds of things together, but it’s a tremendous credit to people and businesses here in Saskatchewan,” he said.Moe said he had already planned to spend time with his wife when Trudeau was in Regina and that’s why the two leaders couldn’t meet. LA LOCHE, Sask. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he continues to work with Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe despite their differences over the federal carbon tax.Trudeau was asked at a funding announcement in La Loche on Wednesday whether he would try to persuade Moe, who was also there, about the tax.Trudeau said he and Moe have had “many great conversations” on things they agree and disagree on.
Kolkata: Tension spread in Asansol after some banners were put up near the house of outgoing BJP MP from Asansol Babul Supriyo on Tuesday afternoon, saying ‘Chowkidar Chor Hain’.An irate Supriyo pulled down the banners, tore them apart and finally set them on fire. It has been learnt that after returning from his election rally in the afternoon, Supriyo found that a banner had been put up close to his residence in Asansol. The BJP leaders in the districts alleged that some local Trinamool Congress leaders might have been involved in the incident, to trigger violence ahead of elections. The district Trinamool Congress leaders have, however, denied the allegation. It may be mentioned here that Supriyo has been under the scanner of the Election Commission after he was found playing the controversial theme song of the party. EC has already sought a report from the District Election Officer (DEO) of West Burdwan regarding the issue. It was alleged that Supriyo and other BJP leaders have been playing the song despite the ban imposed by the office of the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO). The election officials also instructed the DEO of West Burdwan to take necessary steps in order to check playing of the controversial song. Supriyo had played the song during his election rallies on Sunday and Monday, flouting the guidelines issued by the CEO’s office.
Northwestern men’s basketball coach Bill Carmody had trouble recalling Ohio State men’s basketball senior guard William Buford’s class year during a press conference following the Wildcats’ 87-54 Wednesday loss to the Buckeyes. Members of the press informed Carmody that Buford was a senior. “Thank God,” Carmody said, rubbing his brow. Buford scored a career-high 28 points, hauled in nine rebounds and dished out four assists during No. 2-ranked OSU’s victory against unranked Northwestern in the teams’ Big Ten conference opener at the Schottenstein Center. One might understand why Carmody said he was glad to see the Buckeyes’ lone senior beginning his final tour of Big Ten duty, as Buford shot 9-of-14 from the field and 5-of-7 from 3-point range in the win. “I know Buford is a very good player,” Carmody said. “He’s looks as good as anyone to me. He can dribble the ball … gets in the lane. (He) gets fouled and goes to the foul line. He’s doing things decisively.” Buford, who has totaled 68 career points against the Wildcats in six games, said he just let the game come to him in this most recent matchup with Northwestern. “I was just shooting the ball,” he said. “I was fortunate to be knocking them down and my teammates just kept telling me to shoot.” Northwestern (10-3, 0-1 Big Ten) kept the score close in the early stages of the game. The Wildcats even held a lead with 14:01 to play in the first half. Buford helped distance the Buckeyes (13-1, 1-0 Big Ten) with a 3-pointer that extended an OSU lead to 21-13 at the 10:00 mark in the first half. Buford smiled widely and celebrated with teammates after the 3-pointer. OSU was on course to take a 41-26 lead into half. Thanks in part to Buford, the Buckeyes wouldn’t relinquish the lead. OSU sophomore guard Jordan Sibert said the 2011-12 edition of the Buckeyes rely on Buford when the team can’t find a rhythm. “We can count on (Buford) now,” Sibert said. “He’s going to be scoring or rebounding. … He finds a way to get things going.” OSU sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, who scored 17 points in 22 minutes against Northwestern, agreed. “Will is doing a great job,” Sullinger said. “This year, he’s taken a little bit of leadership upon himself because he’s been through it all. He’s doing a great job.” After watching Buford drop 28 points on his team during 35 minutes of action, Carmody had only praise for the player, saying, “(Buford’s) stepped up.” “He’s a senior and he knows what he can do, and he’s doing it.” OSU continues conference play Saturday at No. 15 Indiana. Opening tip is set for 6 p.m.
Bayern Munich have named Antoine Griezmann as their top transfer target for next summer, despite his €200m release clause at Atletico MadridThe Bavarians feel that their current squad will be able make it seven successive Bundesliga titles this season and have a respectable run in the Champions League at the same time.But AS reports that Bayern are aware that the clock is ticking for the likes of Arjen Robben, 34, and Franck Ribery, 35, who are now well into the twilight phase of their playing careers.Due to this, a new star is needed at the Allianz Arena and Bayern have named Griezmann as the ideal signing.The German side views the World Cup winner as the best striker in European football right now.Although the club president Uni Hoeness is aware that signing Griezmann will not come at a cheap price and plans to make an approach next summer instead, where he will have adequate funds at his disposal to pay for his €200m buy-out clause.Juventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.Griezmann was originally available for €100m, but he signed a new contract at Atletico before this summer’s World Cup after opting against joining La Liga rivals Barcelona.Plan BShould their attempts to sign Griezmann next summer fail, then Bayern will then turn their focus onto signing Juventus’ Paulo Dybala.The Argentine striker is set to play a key role alongside Cristiano Ronaldo up front for Juventus this season and is contracted at the club until June 2022.Although Dybala had been linked with a move to Atletico last season after being seen with manager Diego Simeone back in March.Dybala managed 22 goals and seven assists in 33 Serie A games last season.

Kolkata: All India Trinamool Youth Congress president and party’s MP Abhishek Banerjee on Saturday said the Trinamool Congress is ready to go for elections any time and is confident of winning comprehensively.Addressing a public rally at Rash Math in Baruipur as a preparatory meeting for the mega Brigade rally of the party scheduled on January 19, Banerjee said: “You have to ensure that the communal forces cannot rear its ugly head at any booth in South 24-Parganas district. Let us unite to drive them out. We are ready for the elections, be it today, tomorrow or day after tomorrow and we will be giving a befitting reply to them (BJP ) in a manner that they cannot be traced even with a microscope.” Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeBanerjee reiterated that the Brigade rally will deliver the clarion call to oust the BJP from the Centre in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. Drawing similarities between Netaji and Mamata Banerjee, he said the latter’s battle cry “Delhi Chalo” is a reminder of Subhas Bose’s slogan. Abhishek maintained that several national leaders like Arvind Kejriwal, Akhilesh Yadav, Stalin, Shatrughan Sinha, Farooq Abdullah and others will attend the rally to strengthen Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s political fight to show the exit door to the BJP and establish a secular government at the Centre.

The good days will come only when the government at the Centre is toppled. The price of LPG will come down to Rs 500 and the diesel price will be at Rs 50 a litre,” Banerjee said. He also took a dig at the BJP which had planned to bring in leaders from other states in Bengal for political meetings. “They are bringing leaders from Delhi, party workers from ‘agencies’ and decorators from Ranchi and are claiming to win seats in Bengal. Isn’t it ludicrous as their leaders are completely ignorant of the rich culture of the state,” Banerjee said. Abhishek was also critical of the Prime Minister’s huge spending on publicity campaigns. “He had spent more than Rs 10000 crore for publicity but has deprived the country. All the promises made by him have been exercises in futility,” he maintained. Abhishek also took the opportunity to slam the BJP’s plan of Rath Yatra programme in Bengal. “In the name of Rath Yatra, they have brought a 7-star AC luxury bus from Delhi. We have heard of Rath Yatra of Shri Jagannath and Shri Krishna. But in the name of Rath, they will be riding a luxury bus. “They cannot compete with us in terms of development. We have fulfilled the promises that we made before coming to power,” he said.
Kolkata: Coming down heavily on the BJP, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee warned the party against spreading hate politics and in the same breath, urged people to preserve the country’s unity and integrity. She was addressing a gathering at Mahamilan Math of Jay Guru cult at Baranagar on Monday evening.”From time immemorial, the rishis in India had talked about religious harmony and peace. It is our tradition to love and respect the people belonging to other religions, cults and faith. Our parents, teachers and elders have taught us to respect our neighbours irrespective of their faith and religion. But over the years, things have changed in India. In the name of religion, hatred is being propagated and attempts have been made to weaken the society by spreading divisive messages,” she said, adding: “At times I become scared and ask myself whether we can save the country’s unity and integrity.” Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataRecalling her experience in Puri, the Chief Minister said: “Some people belonging to a political party had raised slogans that I was not a Hindu and tried to prevent me from entering the temple. I was shocked. This is not Indian culture and tradition.” Without naming BJP, she warned the party and said in India the motive of dividing the country would not work. “Who are they to decide how I should dress, what I should eat or which religion I should follow? In the name of protecting cows, people were lynched. This is not Hinduism. This is the religion of some hooligans,” Banerjee added. Referring to ‘sanatan dharma’, Banerjee said: “Humanism and harmony are the basic tenets of Hinduism. Religion is intimately connected with service (seva) and when you offer service you do not see the person’s religion, caste or creed.” Contd on P7
The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) announced a stipend for Hindu priests across Kolkata on Tuesday. The Kolkata mayor, Firhad Hakim in his announcement at Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) said that as many as 49 Hindu priests working in seven burning ghats in Kolkata will be given a stipend of Rs.380 per case of death. This Rs.380 per case will be for performing last rites for each of the deceased person. “There are certain Hindu priests who only conducted last rites. They had no fixed stipend and would depend on whatever the deceased’s family would offer.So on per case basis, we will provide Rs.380 to them,” said Hakim. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataHowever, this scheme will only be applicable for those residing in Kolkata and not cover those residing in other parts of Bengal. On being asked whether KMC can roll out any new schemes during the election period while the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) is in place, Hakim said, “The scheme was decided much earlier than the elections, but the announcement was made today.” Interestingly, when the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government came to power in 2011, it announced a monthly stipend of Rs.2000 for each of the Muslim clerics across the state. The announcement faced a major backlash as opposition alleged that the government and the party – Trinamool Congress was trying to appease the minority community through this scheme.(With input from DNA)
The most feared online entities in the present day are trolls. Trolls, a fearsome bunch of fake or pseudo online profiles, tend to attack online users, mostly celebrities, sports person or political profiles using a wide range of methods. One of these methods is to post obscene or NSFW (Not Safe For Work) content on your profile or website where User Generated Content (USG) is allowed. This can create unnecessary attention and cause legal troubles for you too. The traditional way out is to get a moderator (or a team of them). Let all the USGs pass through this moderation system. This is a sustainable solution for a small platform. But if you are running a large scale app, say a publishing app where you publish one hundred stories a day, and the success of these stories depend on the user interaction with them, then this model of manual moderation becomes unsustainable. More the number of USGs, more is the turn-around time, larger the moderation team size. This results in escalating costs, for a purpose that’s not contributing to your business growth in any manner. That’s where Machine Learning could help. Machine Learning algorithms that can scan images and content for possible abusive or adult content is a better solution that manual moderation. Tech giants like Microsoft, Google, Amazon have a ready solution for this. These companies have created APIs which are commercially available for developers. You can incorporate these APIs in your application to weed out the filth served by the trolls. The different APIs available for this purpose are Microsoft moderation, Google Vision, AWS Rekognition & Clarifai. Dataturks have made a comparative study on using these APIs on one particular dataset to measure their efficiency. They used a YACVID dataset with 180 images, manually labelled 90 of these images as nude and the rest as non-nude. The dataset was then fed to the 4 APIs mentioned above, their efficiency was tested based on the following parameters. True Positive (TP): Given a safe photo, the API correctly says so False Positive (FP): Given an explicit photo but the API incorrectly classifies it as safe. False negative (FN): Given a safe photo but the API is not able to detect so and True negative(TN): Given an explicit photo and the API correctly says so. TP and TN are two cases which meant the system behaved correctly. An FP meant that the app was vulnerable to attacks from trolls, FN meant the efficiency of the systems were low and hence not practically viable. 10% of the cases would be such that the API can’t decide whether its explicit or not. Those would be sent for manual moderation. This would bring down the maintenance cost of the moderation team. The results that they received are shown below: Source: Dataturks As it is evident from the above table, the best standalone API is Google vision with a 99% accuracy and 94% recall value. Recall value implies that if the same images are repeated, it can recognize them with 94% precision. The best results however were received with the combination of Microsoft and Google. The comparison of the response times are mentioned below: Source: dataturks The response time might have been affected with the fact that all the images accessed by the APIs were stored in Amazon S3. Hence AWS API might have had an unfair advantage on the response time. The timings were noted for 180 image calls per API. The cost is the lowest for AWS Rekognition – $1 for 1000 calls to the API. It’s $1.2 for Clarifai, $1.5 for both Microsoft and Google. The one notable drawback of the Amazon API was that the images had to be stored as S3 objects, or converted into that. All the other APIs accepted any web links as possible source of images. What this study says is that the power of filtering out negative and explicit content in your app is much easier now. You might still have to have a small team of moderators, but their jobs will be made a lot easier with the ML models implemented in these APIs. Machine Learning is paving the way for us to be safe from the increasing menace of Trolls, a threat to free speech and open sharing of ideas which were the founding stones of internet and the world wide web as a whole. Will this discourage Trolls from continuing their slandering or will it create a counter system to bypass the APIs and checks? We can only know in time.
