Facebook Overhauls Messaging as It Pivots to Privacy

Facebook Inc on Tuesday debuted an overhaul of its core social network and new business-focused tools, the first concrete steps in its plan to refashion itself into a private messaging and e-commerce company. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a fresh design for the world's biggest social network that de-emphasized its News Feed and showcased services like its messaging app, online marketplace and video-on-demand site. The company also rolled out features aimed both at encouraging users to interact with their close social circle as well as with businesses, including appointment booking and a "Secret Crush" option for Facebook Dating. Zuckerberg in March promised changes to the advertising-driven social media company as it was under regulatory scrutiny over propaganda on its platform and users' data privacy. Facebook's News Feed continues to draw ad dollars but user growth in its most lucrative markets has slowed. "We believe that there is a com…

Mother of Four Starts Career as Biking Instructor

On a sunny, breezy spring day, a group of children, four to seven-years-old, sit on their bikes, helmets and gloves on, ready to start their biking lesson. Their moms, standing nearby, watch them closely, feeling proud that their little ones are learning how to ride. Instructor Rachel Van is also excited about making biking a part of their lives. She still remembers how she felt, riding a bike for the first time. It was an amazing “I can" moment. Now, her job is helping other kids to experience that moment.  “It’s probably the biggest confidence booster. It gives kids such a sense of independence and agency,” she says. Basics of biking Rachel Van quit her job as a salesperson in the bicycle industry last year, to become a certified cycling instructor. She founded Pedal Power Kids to teach bicycle education. Before hitting the road, she has the group review the basics of the bike maintenance, what she calls “the ABC quick check.”  “A” is for air, she explains. “We have…

Making Driverless Cars Safer For Pedestrians

One big concern about autonomous vehicles is that logical computers sometimes have trouble dealing with a messy world. To the point, a pedestrian was struck and killed by an autonomous vehicle in Arizona last year. But new algorithms are trying to solve that potentially deadly problem. VOA's Kevin Enochs reports.

Tech Helping Make Big Impact on Local Government

For people needing food from San Francisco's main food bank, one of the biggest hurdles was actually filling out the online form for food stamps. The application was long, with more than 200 questions. It didn't work on mobile phones. For people without home computers, it was hard to get through the process. But the San Francisco Food Bank, which provides fresh vegetables and dry goods to more than 200,000 people in northern California, partnered with a technology nonprofit that helped bring the application process into the digital era. "We made a really simple online form that's mobile first and only takes seven minutes," said Jennifer Pahlka, founder and executive director of Code for America, which helps government programs work better by using technology. "It uses really clear, simple language, and then we help people get through the process by supporting them by text message because that's what people actually use." A new bill f…

Twitter Terror: Arrests Prompt Concern Over Online Extremism

A few months after he turned 17 — and more than two years before he was arrested — Vincent Vetromile recast himself as an online revolutionary. Offline, in this suburb of Rochester, New York, Vetromile was finishing requirements for promotion to Eagle Scout in a troop that met at a local church. He enrolled at Monroe Community College, taking classes to become a heating and air conditioning technician. On weekends, he spent hours in the driveway with his father, a Navy veteran, working on cars. On social media, though, the teenager spoke in world-worn tones about the need to “reclaim our nation at any cost.” Eventually he subbed out the grinning selfie in his Twitter profile, replacing it with the image of a colonial militiaman shouldering an AR-15 rifle. And he traded his name for a handle: “Standing on the Edge.” That edge became apparent in Vetromile’s posts, including many interactions over the last two years with accounts that praised the Confederacy, warned of looming gu…

Service Worker API

Service workers essentially act as proxy servers that sit between web applications, the browser, and the network (when available). They are intended, among other things, to enable the creation of effective offline experiences, intercept network requests and take appropriate action based on whether the network is available, and update assets residing on the server. They will also allow access to push notifications and background sync APIs.

Rust is a relatively new programming language with the goal of "empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software".

V8 isolates give us both JavaScript and WebAssembly.

This means that you can leverage the prototyping power and extensive
ecosystem of JavaScript, alongside the power of WebAssembly, which in
addition to fast, predictable, performance, also opens up the wealth

C++, and Rust.

Kenya Taps Into Technology to Attract Young People to Farms

Kenyan innovators are betting on digital technologies to attract young people to agriculture currently dominated by an aging population. With 98 percent mobile phone penetration, according to the latest data from the Communications Authority of Kenya, the cellphone is proving to be an important source of extension services in areas where such services are not available. Sarah Kimani reports for VOA from Kinoo, Kenya.

Never run sudo pip install.

sudo pip install won't solve all the dependency problems and has security issues

If you want to make a package available to all users of the machine, use your distribution's package manager (apt, yum, pacman, brew, etc.). If you don't have root permissions or the OS package manager doesn't have the package you need, use pip install --user and add the user installation directory to the PATH environment variable. If you want multiple versions of the same library to coexist, to do Python development, or just to isolate dependencies for any other reason, use virtual environments.

US Social Media Firms Scramble to Fight Fake News

As Notre Dame Cathedral burned, a posting on Facebook circulated - a grainy video of what appeared to be a man in traditional Muslim garb up in the cathedral. Fact-checkers worldwide jumped into action and pointed out the video and postings were fake and the posts never went viral. But this week, the Sri Lanka government temporarily shut down Facebook and other sites to stop the spread of misinformation in the wake of the Easter Sunday bombings in the country that killed more than 250 people. Last year, misinformation on Facebook was blamed for contributing to riots in the country. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and others are increasingly being held responsible for the content on their sites as the world tries to grapple in real time with events as they unfold. From lawmakers to the public, there has been a rising cry for the sites to do more to combat misinformation particularly if it targets certain groups.

US Social Media Companies Pressed to Better Police Content

Social media companies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are not legally responsible for the content that users upload to their sites. That legal protection has been key to their explosive growth, but there is a growing consensus that companies must do more to root out misleading content.

Canada to Seek Court Order to Force Facebook to Follow Privacy Laws

Facebook Inc broke Canadian privacy laws when it collected the information of some 600,000 citizens, a top watchdog said on Thursday, pledging to seek a court order to force the social media giant to change its practices. Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien made his comments while releasing the results of an investigation, opened a year ago, into a data sharing scandal involving Facebook and the now-defunct British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Though Facebook has acknowledged a "major breach of trust" in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the company disputed the results of the Canadian probe, Therrien said. "Facebook's refusal to act responsibly is deeply troubling given the vast amount of sensitive personal information users have entrusted to this company," said Therrien. Specifically, the company refused to voluntarily submit to audits of its privacy policies and practices over the next five years, he said. "The stark contradi…
