a student society has been censored for talking about censorship

To the list of what can get you censored on a university campus we can now add ‘talking about censorship’. The University of Lincoln Students’ Union has suspended its student conservative society’s social-media accounts until 1 May over allegations of ‘bring[ing] the University of Lincoln Students’ Union and the University of Lincoln into disrepute’. According to a statement from the society, this was due to ‘an anonymous complaint over two tweets’. ‘The first, in relation to freedom of speech, linking an article from spiked, and the second was in relation to an SU questionnaire that had to be completed before voting in recent SU elections.’After reading spiked’s Free Speech University Rankings (FSUR), the society decided to publicise the fact that Lincoln Students’ Union had received a Re

mammals shrink when earth heats up, study says

In this photo provided by Abigail D'Ambrosia Carroll, an Arenahippus jaw fragment (with second and third molars), as discovered in field. Global warming often leads to global shrinking for mammals, like us, a new study suggests. At least twice before in Earth's history, when carbon dioxide levels soared and temperatures spiked, mammals shriveled in a bit in size, including our earliest primate ancestor, according to a new study based on fossil teeth found in Wyoming. And the study's chief author said it could be a glimpse of a smaller mammal future under even faster man-made warning that's going on now.

study casts doubt on whether internet filters in the home protect teenagers onli

Internet filters are widely used in homes, schools and libraries throughout the UK to protect young people from unpleasant* online experiences. However, a new study by Oxford casts doubt on whether such technologies shield young teenagers after finding no link between homes with internet filters and the likelihood of the teenagers in those households being better protected. The research paper, published in the Journal of Pediatrics, says the effectiveness of internet filters is 'dubious' and suggests that resources would be better spent trying to develop the resilience of teenagers to such experiences.
Researchers from the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) at Oxford University analysed Ofcom data from 1,030 interviews in the homes of 515 teenagers aged 12-15 years across the UK. There was b

govt proposes curbs on online pharmacies

The government is against the sale of medicines online unless e-tailers have a physical presence in the areas they serve.The government laid out a series of proposals on Thursday ahead of public consultations on regulating online pharmacies.“No sale by e-pharmacy shall be permitted to be carried out by any person or entity unless it has a licensed brick and mortar facility in each of the licensing authority’s jurisdiction,” the health ministry’s proposal says.Online sale of prescription medicines is illegal, a government-appointed technical panel had said last November, even as the trend is catching on in the cities.Created in 2015 after the Maharashtra drug regulatory authority raided a major online retailer and seized prescription-only brands, the panel had reviewed laws governing the bu

kids want parental help with online risk, but fear parental freak outs

Credit: Jourden C/public domainAlthough it may come as no surprise to the Fresh Prince, kids think that parents just don't understand what it is like to be a teen in an internet-connected world and this lack of understanding may hinder the development of skills necessary to safely navigate online, according to a team of researchers.
In a study, teens rarely talked to their parents about potentially risky online experiences, according to Pamela Wisniewski, formerly a post-doctoral scholar in information sciences and technology, Penn State, and currently an assistant professor in computer science at the University of Central Florida. She added that parents and children often have much different perceptions of and reactions to the same online situations. Some of these situations may include

property auctions to go online | business

The Justice Ministry is preparing a system to auction properties through an online platform with open bids, set to start from September. The aim is to sidestep the obstacles created by the various groups that have been preventing the implementation of auctions in their conventional form at courthouses around the country.The ministry’s bill concerning online auctions that Kathimerini has seen provides for “the electronic system to record all offers submitted.

it gets a taste of the other side of tech support

Working in IT, I can be critical of sloppy work that I find online. I don’t know about you, but as a tech who’s aware of what’s involved on the back end, it’s almost harder to stomach the errors as a customer. Case in point: A recent experience using an online service scheduler for a large auto company.
I had a simple request: My car needed service. At first, I phoned the vendor to set up an appointment and worked my way through push button hell. After a long time on hold, I reached a recording: “Sorry, but I am away from my phone, and if you leave a message I will get back to you in the next 24 hours.” Wanting to secure a time slot, I decided to try plan B: online scheduling.
I headed to the dealer’s site and easily located the scheduler service button. However, a floating online help “li
