directv admits screwing up regional sports fees, starts issuing credits

EnlargeKeith AllisonShare this storyAT&T this week acknowledged that DirecTV has been charging the wrong regional sports fees to some customers and is now issuing bill credits to those who paid more because of the mistake."We have identified a small percentage of customers who are receiving some inaccurate bills for regional sports network fees," an AT&T spokesperson told Ars yesterday. "We are working as quickly as possible to notify those customers and issue credits. We apologize for the error.” AT&T bought DirecTV, the nation's largest satellite TV provider with about 21 million customers, in 2015.The mistake affects bills going back to late January. Customers will not have to do anything to get the credit, as it will be issued automatically.The billing problem came to light last week w

By Rebecca BeauregardGASHAMO, SOMALI, 15 February 2017 – Mutas does not look at his mother. He is not looking anywhere, rather he lays still, his unfocused pupils covered occasionally by heavy eyelids. While we talk, his mother, Bedra Dek, keeps her eyes entirely on him. Her one-year-old son is suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and despite the food and water shortage and her two other children, she explains that all her thoughts are focused on him improving.“When your child is well, spiritually you feel happy. This is what I am waiting and hoping for. Nothing else is in my mind except this,” Bedra speaks softly, her eyes never wavering from her son.About six months ago, Mutas became sick with a cold. Since then, he has fought that illness and intermittent diarrhoea while they

what the top 5 metro areas pay for hot it jobs

The war for IT talent in 2017 is becoming even more competitive -- and even more expensive. The demand for talent certainly isn't slowing down, and companies are offering hefty compensation packages to try and fill open roles.
Tech jobs in big data, IT security, and software development, for example, are paying big bucks for both entry- and senior-level positions, especially if you live in one of the five largest metro areas in the United States, according to Randstad's 2017 Salary Guide.
"The biggest takeaway here is that salary is still the No. 1 factor candidates consider when looking at new opportunities. The recent Gallup State of the American Workforce survey showed that about 37 percent of people would leave their job for a salary increase of 20 percent or less -- it doesn't take mu

presstv-food security deteriorating in mideast: un

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has warned that ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa have sharply deteriorated food security and reduced nutrition levels, leaving approximately 30 million people unsure of their next meal.The FAO Regional Overview of Food Insecurity in the Near East and North Africa, released on March 27, stated that the intensity of conflicts and protracted crises have led to the prevalence of food insecurity in the areas over the past five years.“Countries such as Iraq, Sudan, Syria and Yemen have rates that are among the highest in the world, reflecting the devastating impacts of the ongoing conflicts on their food security and nutrition situation,” the UN agency’s report pointed out.“The region is facing unprecedented c

Neither "no-go zones" nor "particularly vulnerable areas" adequately describe the problems in places like Rinkeby, argues Demoskop's Peter Santesson.
If criminals in certain areas know they will escape unpunished because no one dares testify against them, then they will grow more powerful. Regardless of whether it is possible to walk around there without problems.
In a Swedish police report from 2015, these places are called "particularly vulnerable areas". "No-go zones" has become a more common but controversial label. Would you even dare venture out there? That question has received international attention.

presstv-saudi behind mideast instability, disorder: iran

A senior Iranian official has roundly dismissed the latest anti-Iran remarks by Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, stressing that not only has Riyadh not helped Middle East stability, but also fanned the flames of regional insecurity through its aggression against Yemen and support for terror groups operating in Syria.“The deluded and fallacious politicking of this Saudi official has reached the point that he, one of the main directors of the Saudi war on the innocent and defenseless Yemeni nation, and the manifestation of terror and horror in Syria, Bahrain and other regional and world countries, is accusing other regional states of terrorism in nonsensical statements and out of desperation,” Spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry Bahram Qassemi said on Friday.He added that Teh

Authorities in Queensland are preparing for the worst cyclone since Yasi in 2011 as Tropical Cyclone Debbie moves towards the north coast.

directv’s regional sports fees vary wildly, nonsensically, by zip code

Enlarge/ DirecTV's monthly sports fee varies a lot by ZIP code, a Consumerist article shows.ConsumeristShare this storyIf you're a DirecTV customer who is annoyed by your monthly "regional sports fee," get ready to be even more agitated.

presstv-‘saudis keep pouring cluster bombs on yemen’

Amnesty International has slammed the Saudi regime in its allies for dropping cluster bombs on residential areas in Yemen despite the global outcry against the use of such internationally-banned weapons by the Riyadh-led coalition.In a Thursday statement, the UK-based rights group said the Brazilian-manufactured munitions were used by the Saudi-led coalition in a February 15 attack on three residential districts and agricultural land in the northern province of Sa’ada, wounding two people.The report also said that the coalition fired cluster munitions in October 2015 and May 2016.The coalition “absurdly justifies its use of cluster munitions by claiming it is in line with international law, despite concrete evidence of the human cost to civilians caught up in the conflict,” said Lynn Maalo

"Un crucifix, un prie-Dieu et des images pieuses". Voici ce que les socialistes ont découvert dans une salle du Conseil régional des Pays de la Loire lorsqu'ils ont repris la région. Un bureau était bel et bien aménagé en salle de prière à l'époque de leurs prédécesseurs, dont faisait partie François Fillon, affirme Le Canard enchaîné dans son édition de mercredi. Le candidat à l'élection présidentielle y a siégé de 1998 à 2004 en tant que président et vice-président. Des doutes sur la date de l'aménagementUn membre de l'équipe de Jacques Auxiette, président PS du Conseil régional (2004-2015), a confirmé la découverte de ce bureau, "surnommé depuis la chapelle", lorsque les socialistes sont arrivés au pouvoir dans la région.
