Solicitors warned about sexist emails and posts after surge in complaints

first_imgSolicitors have been warned not to send sexist emails and comments after a surge in complaints. The solicitors’ regulator said it had seen a “significant increase” in reports of “inappropriate communications” made by lawyers, including sexist, racist and threatening language on social media and in emails.Such behaviour could be classed as misconduct, which could lead to punishment including a fine or formal warning, it said. The Solicitors Regulation Authority added that it had recently passed several cases on to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, which investigates misconduct by solicitors, including harassment, threatening language and sexually explicit comments.  It also warned that some were becoming too relaxed when communicating with clients as this is increasingly done by email or text instead of more formally by letter. This could “lead to the blurring of the line between client and friend and the informality, [which] together with the expectation of a quick reply, makes it easy to overlook the need to consider carefully what you are saying,” it said. Exchanges between law firms on opposite sides of a case which are “gratuitously offensive” and use “inflammatory language” should also be avoided, added the regulator, noting that a solicitor was recently fined for sending “heated and abusive” emails to an unrepresented opponent. Paul Philip, Solicitors Regulation Authority chief executive, said: “We expect solicitors to act at all times with integrity, including on social media and when commenting in what may seem to be a personal capacity. “Public confidence in the profession is undermined by offensive or inappropriate communication and the misuse of social media can be a real problem.”The most serious available punishment is being struck off, which can be imposed by the SDT. Earlier this year the SRA fined London-based solicitor Stefano Lucatello £5,000 plus £2,500 in costs over emails in which he accused the opposing party in a family law case of “games and lies” and said she had “argued in court like a fisherwoman”.  We expect solicitors to act at all times with integrity, including on social media and when commenting in what may seem to be a personal capacity.Paul Philip, Solicitors Regulation Authority chief executivecenter_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Organisation brings elephants to Twitter using GPS collars

first_imgFIRST IT WAS sharks tweeting their location on Twitter, now it’s the turn of elephants in Keyna to do the same but for different reasons.An organisation called Space for Giants, a UK based charity dedicated to reducing human-wildlife conflict and sustaining the population of large wild animals, has tagged four bull elephants in Laikipia, Kenya, and is following their movements through GPS collars.These collars help the organisation’s scouts on the ground to keep track of where they’re going. It also allows them to visualise their roaming patterns and better understand their behaviour since crop-raiding by elephants is a major problem in the area.Using the hashtag #ElephantsLive, the movement of the four elephants Evgeny, Tyson, Carlos and Kimani, is reported on Twitter and each one has their own unique personality, based on what handlers have noticed about them.The aim of the project is to help build up awareness of the species and highlight the problem of elephant poaching. Any tweets that mentions the elephants’ movement is delayed by 48-second to keep them safe from poachers.

Blue Waters petaflop supercomputer installation begins

first_imgBlue Waters will be one of the most powerful supercomputers on the planet when it finally gets built. Its sustained performance is expected to exceed 1 petaflop, which will be put to good use tackling real-world problems in the fields of science and engineering.However, the machine was approved for funding back in 2007 and has yet to be built at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) located at the University of Illinois. The problem: complexity. IBM spent three years trying to plan the build and then threw in the towel. Then Cray stepped in and the machine has now started being installed, with a completion date expected before 2012 is over.Cray is receiving $188 million for building Blue Waters, and it’s clear to see why the machine is so expensive. It will use 235 Cray XE6 cabinets that use AMD’s 16-core Opteron 6200 processors combined with 4GB of memory per Opteron core for a total of 1.5 petabytes. Messaging will be handled by Cray’s scalable Gemini high-performance interconnect and the system will run Cray’s scalable Linux Environment and GPU/CPU Programming Environment.Even when the above system is built, Cray intends to expand upon it with a further 30 cabinets containing Cray XK6 blades that use Nvidia’s Tesla GPUs with Kepler architecture.As for storage, there will be 500 petabytes available and 300Gbps wide area connections. The file system running on this storage will be the Cray Lustre parallel file system, which is capable of terabyte-per-second storage bandwidth.The room Blue Waters will occupy (image courtesy of Daniel Schwen)Everything about Blue Waters screams performance, and it will be put to good use. Planned projects include modeling molecular assemblies to advance nanotechnology, looking at how viruses enter our cells, figuring out how earthquakes cause damage, how tornadoes are formed, helping to design new systems for avionics and automobiles, and looking at how the universe has evolved since its inception.via The Vergelast_img read more

Tom Clonan Deal or no deal the border will be our problem

first_imgTom Clonan: Deal or no deal, the border will be our problem this time. And we aren’t ready for it The Irish Defence Forces is already on its knees and will be unable to patrol any border on this island, writes Tom Clonan. As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Brexit will critically alter the economic, social, political and security conditions in Ireland for decades to come.  By Tom Clonan AS WE RAPIDLY approach the cliff edge of Brexit, with the real possibility of Britain crashing out of the EU, perhaps even within days,  we are faced with the stark reality of a renewed border on the island of Ireland. It is becoming increasingly clear that irrespective of the manner in which Britain exits the European Union – deal or no deal – we will be forced to re-introduce border controls within Ireland. But this time, unlike during the Troubles – it will be the Republic’s turn to operate the border.  The EU will insist on that in order to protect the integrity of the single European market. During the Troubles, the British Army operated a series of permanent vehicle checkpoints and mutually supporting observation towers and listening posts along the length of the Irish border. In South Armagh alone, the British Army operated 13 such installations. In the border counties of Armagh, Fermanagh and South Tyrone, the staggering financial cost of such infrastructure was only overshadowed by the enormous human cost. 53 RUC Officers and more than 120 British soldiers were killed in this sensitive border area. Hundreds were seriously wounded along with dozens of innocent civilians killed and maimed during Operation Banner – the British Army’s longest ever military campaign which lasted from 1969 to 2007. In total, 3,500 people lost their lives during this period, with tens of thousands seriously injured.In 2006, as a journalist specializing in security and defence, I was invited to one of the last British Army patrols of Operation Banner. I accompanied members of C Company, 39th Infantry Brigade and elements of the 25th Regiment Royal Engineers as they patrolled from Bessbrook Mill to the notorious ‘Golf Four Zero’ Observation Post, atop Croslieve Hill, overlooking the border crossing point south of Newry.I was also transported by British Army Air Corps Lynx helicopter to the nearby observation towers of ‘Romeo One Three’ and ‘Romeo Two One’ at Camlough and Glassdrummon, overlooking the breathtaking scenery and surrounding hills of Cloch Og, Tievecrom, Creeveceeran, Sugarloaf Hill and Drummocakavall. Each of these border positions and their ugly military designations – with blast walls and barbed wire fences – despite their state of the art imaging and eavesdropping technologies proved completely ineffective at policing our porous border. In a point that is especially significant for a generation who no longer remember the Troubles – this border infrastructure simply became a visual symbol of division and hatred.The infrastructure and the people who operated it, supported or serviced it, became de facto targets.Earlier in the Troubles, in the early 1990s, I had a brief experience of patrolling the border as a member of the Irish Defence Forces. In what was termed ‘Aid to the Civil Power Operations’ or ATCP Ops, I participated in Irish military operations in support of An Garda Siochana in the border area. At that point, the Irish Army had approximately 1,800 troops permanently deployed in support of border operations in eight barracks and military installations along its length.   In 2019, on the eve of Brexit, the Irish Defence Forces have just two military posts along 300 miles of a twisting, turning border with over 300 crossing points. Recent reconnaissance and mapping of the border, carried out by the Irish military authorities, estimate that there are approximately 13,000 individual movements of freight and goods, daily, across the border. On a weekly basis, there are almost a quarter of a million individual journeys across the proposed frontier by ordinary citizens going about their business. Given the porous, meandering nature of our border, which corresponds with no recognizable physical feature and erratically splits townlands, neighbours and individual farms its idiosyncratic nature renders it almost impossible to monitor or police.  58 Comments Short URL Tom Clonan Share556 Tweet Email4 The Irish border, a completely artificial and arbitrary political construct, when activated, becomes an impenetrable safe haven for smuggling, criminality and inevitably,  terrorist activity. There may be distinct advantages to this, including the inevitability of a united Ireland, but in order for this transition to take place peacefully and for the security conditions necessary for prosperity and continued economic growth – Ireland needs a major investment in policing, defence and security.    Dr Tom Clonan is a former Captain in the Irish armed forces.

Health reform through

first_imgA controversial bill overhauling the debt-ridden health sector was voted into law on Wednesday despite the objection of all opposition parties and vehement protests by striking doctors who demonstrated outside Parliament.The legislation was approved, in principle, by ruling PASOK though lawmakers from the main opposition New Democracy party, as well as the Communist Party (KKE), the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) and the far-right Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) all voted against it. Additional votes on separate provisions of the bill were being carried out late into the night.Opposition from within the ranks of PASOK was limited. One of the most vociferous critics though was Ektoras Nasiokas, a former deputy health minister who claimed that the draft legislation was not comprehensive or bold enough.Health Minister Andreas Loverdos insisted that the reforms were crucial for Greece’s debt-crippled health sector to become viable, noting that Parliament should “celebrate” the arrival of changes that should have been introduced three decades ago.Earlier on Wednesday striking doctors marched from the Health Ministry, where they had been staging a sit-in for more than a week, to Parliament where there were minor scuffles with police who fired small quantities of tear gas to disperse the crowd.The demonstrators were joined by teachers who object to planned reforms for their sector and public transport workers who staged the latest in a series of work stoppages in protest at the streamlining of their services.Pharmacists protesting plans to liberalise their profession called off their action at the end of the day after Loverdos agreed to tweak the legislation outlining the overhaul of their sector. As a result pharmacies were to reopen to the public on Thursday after days of rolling strikes.The outlook for state hospitals, which have been paralysed by the doctors’ protest action, remained unclear late on Wednesday. So far, nearly two weeks of doctors’ strikes have resulted inthe cancellation of nearly 500,000 appointments.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Your Name Creator Isnt Interested in the LiveAction Remake

first_img Makoto Shinkai is the creator of the anime smash-hit Your Name. Before the film debuted 18 months ago, Shinkai was a favorite creator of anime fans, but after Your Name was released, it became one of the all-time highest-grossing movies to hit Japanese theaters.Even though Your Name just got a home release in the United States, Hollywood is already hard at work on trying to adapt the anime into a live-action version. Two months ago, it was announced that J.J. Abrams, famous for mediocre Star Trek movies and lens flares, would be producing the live-action Your Name adaptation.When speaking to the press at a preview of his art exhibit at Tokyo National Art Center, Shinkai gave his opinion concerning the news of the live-action film. Shinkai stated that he thinks of the anime he creates as his children, but he’s not really interested in what happens to those children when they’re sent out into the world.That might seem a little heartless from the man who created an anime that stirred so much emotion in fans. However, Shinkai clarified what he meant. He said that when he sets a creation into the world, it’s like a son setting out on a journey. What kind of adult he grows into is for him to deal with.Shinkai’s attitude towards his art isn’t all that rare though. Many artists in film, manga, literature, and painting have a detached attitude towards their creations once they’re complete. It makes sense really. If you kept a secure emotional attachment to every piece you created, it would become unbearable to take criticism or part with them.Additionally, considering what has happened with past Western adaptations of anime, like Dragonball and Death Note, it might be the wisest mood for him to become detached from Your Name. I have high hopes for the live-action movie, but odds are it’s going to be absolutely insufferable.

Pentagon Says Border Deployments Cost 534 Million Expects to Expand Role

first_img ADC AUTHOR Deployment of troops to the southern border is expected to cost at least $534 million by the end of September, the Pentagon said, according to The Hill. A DOD letter to Congress references $350 million for the National Guard mission and $184 million for the active-duty mission.DOD also announced Tuesday it has awarded nearly $1 billion in contracts to build the administration’s border wall.Assistant Defense Secretary Robert McMahon told lawmakers this week that any military construction projects to be defunded or delayed due to Pentagon funds redirected for the administration’s border barrier have not been chosen.“It’s a level of detail we are not down to yet, because today there is no requirement,” McMahon said, according to Military.com.The border deployment is also affecting readiness, Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller told the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday. He said deployments have helped some service members such as pilots, military police and engineers, but others could see skills degrade.“One particular unit is doing a mission today that’s not part of their core competency,” he said. “For 60 days, they can handle that, but it will affect their readiness.”Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Tuesday he expects that the Pentagon’s border role will expand as the Department of Homeland Security requests more assistance, Military Times reported.Army Corps of Engineers photo by Brooks Hubbard IVlast_img read more
