russian internet watchdog issues another warning to liberal outlet 'the new time

Yevgeniya Albats, editor-in-chief of liberal Russian publication The New Times, says has she received a warning from Russia's internet watchdog Roskomnadzor following an article about a former Russian soldier who went to fight alongside jihadi groups in Syria. Roskmonadzor said the material "showed signs of justifying terrorism." According to Russian law, two warnings from Roskomnadzor within one year are enough for the watchdog to request a court to revoke a media organization of its registration.Roskomnadzor previously issued a warning to The New Times in December 2016 and Febuary 2016. The state watchdog said it does not exclude the possibility of asking a court to suspend the publication's media license.Writing on her Facebook page, Albats called the warning "classic censorship, which

false emergency alert of incoming ballistic missile attack rattles hawaii

Mobile phones in Hawaii received a harrowing alert Saturday morning: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER, THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” The warning also appears to have been broadcast on television. The alerts sparked panic and caused a few harrowing minutes as people didn’t know whether to believe the stark warning. Emergency officials corrected the error about 20 minutes after the initial alert went out, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
It wasn’t just civilians who didn’t know what was going on.Andrew Flowers shared a screencap on Twitter of a text message he received from his father, an Army major stationed in Hawaii, who said they didn’t know whether the warning was real. “I called your mom and told her I love her and we waited to see what is true or

botched tsunami warning test is the latest false alarm

While the full details of the alert said it was a test, the notification that hit people's home screens made no such notice of that fact. As such, it was understandably alarming to those that received the alert. Since then, various national weather service Twitter accounts also have confirmed that there's no tsunami warning in effect, including the official NWS tsunami alerts account:As of now, there's still no word as to how or why this false alert went out. But the timing is particularly ironic: This morning, there's a congressional hearing on the effectiveness of mobile alerts in emergencies. Between today's gaff and the Hawaii missile emergency alert, it's clear that things could stand to be tightened up with how these alerts are released.

delhi struggles to breathe: 30 alerts govt should have issued but did not

Vehicles ply in reduced visibility in south Delhi as smog enveloped the city with a spike in particulate pollution. Over the last one month, residents of the national capital territory of Delhi should have received an alert every day, warning them that air quality readings were breaching acceptable levels.An emergency air-quality warning system created in 2016 for the national capital territory of Delhi has failed its sole purpose: To warn citizens of hazardous levels of air pollution.Over eight days to October 16, 2017, as Delhi’s air quality worsened, reaching 10-12 times above safe limits set by the World Health Organization (WHO), the government ignored its own plan, which also included a clean-up of the air. Officials should have, among other things, enforced pollution controls on the
