There cannot be a case of all profit no responsibility.” Getty Images Facebook on Tuesday offered some statistics in its defense following criticism of its struggle to contain the spread of a livestream video of Friday’s mass shooting in New Zealand.The social network said that the stream had fewer than 200 viewers during the live broadcast and that the video got roughly 4,000 views before it was taken down.The numbers were revealed in a blog post by Facebook Deputy General Counsel Chris Sonderby, who said no users reported the video when it was live. The first user report came 12 minutes after the livestream ended, a full 29 minutes after it started. As previously noted, Facebook purged 1.5 million uploads of the video and most (1.2 million) were blocked before going live on the platform. Sonderby said in the Tuesday blog post that the original video was digitally mapped so that Facebook software could detect and block similar videos.On Friday, a gunman in Christchurch attacked Muslims praying at two mosques and livestreamed the shooting on Facebook.

The village that keeps rising from the volcanic ashes

The village that keeps rising from the volcanic ashes

first_imgThis picture taken on 30 March 2019 shows the newly built Marisa`s hotel, made with cement and lava on the roof of the owner`s former house, in the village of Portelo in Cape Verde`s Cha das Caldeiras valley. Photo: AFPFour years after the volcano erupted — razing everything in its path in Cape Verde’s Cha das Caldeiras valley — the floor tiles of the small, rebuilt inn are warm to the touch.”We constructed too quickly on lava that had not yet cooled down,” says hotel owner Marisa Lopes, in her early 30s.”For the first months, the floors in the rooms were so hot that you couldn’t walk on them with bare feet.”Lopes is one of dozens of entrepreneurs locked in a perpetual tug of war with the Pico do Fogo volcano towering over Cha das Caldeiras, whose population numbers 500.The name means Peak of Fire in Portuguese.The volcano generates the bulk of the crater community’s gross domestic product, attracting some 5,000 tourists every year who need hotel beds, food and tour guides — about 30 make a living as guides in this remote part of West Africa.But on the downside, the festering giant erupts once a generation — six times in the last 200 years — destroying everything in its path; crops, homes, roads.On November 23, 2014, Lopes watched helplessly as the Pico — almost 2,900 metres (9,500 feet) high — erupted after a 19-year slumber.Lava engulfed her brand new tourist hostel, eponymously named Casa Marisa.Three months later, she built a new one, again in the flow zone of the crater.”The volcano took a house from me, but it gave me another. Without it, there would be no tourism,” she told AFP, undeterred.Despite the constant danger and government efforts to dissuade them, the inhabitants of Cha das Caldeiras keep coming back.After the last eruption, the military evacuated those in the path of the lava and the state provided food aid for six months afterwards.But it was the people themselves who reconstructed roads and found the materials for rebuilding homes and hotels. Again.’It’s home’Cicilio Montrond, 42, was also there in 2014, looking on as a river of molten rock spewing from the Pico do Fogo burnt his fruit trees and buried everything he owned in a thick, grey coat.The eruption killed no one, but left 1,500 people homeless.After a few weeks in Sao Filipe, a nearby town to where the valley inhabitants were relocated, Montrond returned to Cha das Caldeiras with his wife.Not a bird stirred in the air still polluted with ash, not a creature moved on the still warm lava ocean that now covered the valley floor.For weeks, Montrond and his wife lived in a tent on the roof of their destroyed house with no water, no electricity and no food apart from a few canned goods.”We lived in makeshift shelters, it was precarious, dangerous. But we were home.”For Montrond, it is unimaginable to live anywhere else than the fertile, lava-fed valley that, between outbursts, boasts an abundance of vines, fig trees and cassava.This picture taken on 31 March 2019, shows the volcano Pico do Fogo and the remains of the roof of a house submerged by lava during the last eruption in 2014, in the village of Portelo in Cape Verde`s Cha das Caldeiras valley. Photo: AFP”It is the volcano that allows us to live,” said Montrond, tourist guide-turned-hotelkeeper and restaurateur.The Pico’s eruptions are rarely deadly in terms of human life.But what about the next time?”The volcano is my life,” Montrond shrugged, as he gazed upon the house he built with his own hands.”I was born here, I will die here.”Rocks were fallingThe volcano gives. The volcano takes.First it destroys the vines, then it provides fruitful soil for the planting of new ones. These produce wines — some of it for the export market.Far from fearing or despising the peak’s constant threatening presence, the inhabitants appear to embrace it and have made it part of their identity.They evoke past eruptions with a smile, sometimes even a touch of nostalgia.Margarita Lopes Dos Santos, 99, has been forced out of her home by the three last eruptions of the Pico do Fogo.The first was in June 1951, shortly after she gave birth to her first child.”I remember the first time like it was yesterday,” she said, through a beaming, toothless smile.”It was a lot more violent. Rocks were falling from the sky. There were tornadoes of ash and of smoke,” she recounted, while husking beans.Outside her house, Lopes Dos Santos has planted flowers — flashes of red begonias that provide the only colour in the grey and black landscape.”The resilience of the people of Cha is extraordinary,” said Jorge Nogueira, president of the municipal council of Sao Filipe, capital of the island of Fogo, Cape Verde.”As soon as they could, they came back — to poor living conditions, but no matter: the only thing that counted for them was to be home.”last_img
What Drives Asylum Seekers To The US

What Drives Asylum Seekers To The US

first_img 00:00 /11:03 There’s been a considerable amount of controversy concerning our southern border with the detention and deportation of Central American immigrants. But we seem to focus so much lately on what happens at the border after that point – namely the separation of families – that perhaps we overlook the situation that leads to all that.With so much gang and drug cartel activity in Central American countries, should it be any surprise that so many are willing to risk detainment – or even death – to make the dangerous journey to the United States? And with all of that going on, what are the leaders and institutions in those countries doing to keep their citizens safe? And how much will the upcoming presidential election in Mexico play into this?In the audio above, Houston Matters host Craig Cohen talks with University of Houston political science professor Jeronimo Cortina about the political situation south of the U.S. and how it drives so many to migrate northward.

first_img Travelweek Group VANCOUVER — Canada Jetlines has added another two Canadian gateways to its proposed network: Kelowna International Airport (YLW) and Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (YWG).The ULCC, which says it’s on track to launch this summer, has reached agreements to provide flights from both airports. Agreements are subject to the completion of the airline licencing process and the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.CEO Javier Suarez said that he expects Canadians in Winnipeg and Kelowna to travel more often as a result of Jetlines’ low fares.“Similarly, driven by these low fares, both markets should experience an increase in the number of tourists in their regions. The addition of these airports will extend our reach, giving Jetlines future access to more large populations and strong markets.”Barry Rempel, President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority, added: “The addition of Jetlines to this market gives travellers another low-cost option to explore all this city and province have to offer.”More news:  Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaAlso commenting on the new agreements was Sam Samaddar, Airport Director, Kelowna International Airport, who said: “Adding another ultra-low-cost carrier to YLW will give residents more flight options, and visitors more opportunities to experience all that the Okanagan has to offer.”The news comes on the heels of Jetlines’ announcement that it has signed agreements for future service to Puerto Plata, Samana and Santo Domingo.
