first_imgLawmakers on the House Armed Services subcommittee on readiness offered measured praise Thursday to leaders of DOD and the military services for their initial response to widespread privatized family housing problems but raised concerns about long-term solutions, Stars and Stripes reported.Chairman John Garamendi (D-Calif.) offered support during a hearing Thursday but pressed DOD representatives about ongoing reports of problems with privatized family housing.“We’ve heard encouraging news. However… we continue to receive large amounts of correspondence from families struggling today,” Garamendi said. “We’ve heard that in some cases the very efforts headquarters put into place to try to improve the situation have led to counterproductive practices like closing maintenance work orders too quickly.”Ranking member Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) highlighted the ongoing efforts of military spouses in raising the issue.“I want to commend the courage and persistence of military spouses for bringing this issue to our attention,” Lamborn said. “Without the diligence of military families raising their voices on behalf of others, we might still be uninformed about these troubling problems. This was truly a grassroots effort in the best traditions of America.”Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Richard L.J. Gourley ADC AUTHORlast_img read more


first_img Share your voice YouTube says it recognizes that “minors could be at risk of online or offline exploitation.” Seth Rosenblatt/CNET YouTube’s recommendation system enables people who leer at videos of children in bathing suits to more easily find other videos that could offer pedophiliac appeal, according to a study reported Monday by The New York Times. YouTube said it has expanded its efforts from earlier this year to limit recommendations of “borderline content” to include videos featuring minors in risky situations, YouTube said in a blog post Monday. “While the content itself does not violate our policies, we recognize the minors could be at risk of online or offline exploitation,” Google-owned YouTube said. “We’ve already applied these changes to tens of millions of videos across YouTube.”The company referred CNET to the blog post when asked for comment on the study.The study comes after YouTube disabled comments in February on videos featuring minors. That move followed reports about an subculture of posting comments on YouTube videos of children that could be construed in a sexualized way; the comments include time-stamp links that would take viewers to similar videos at other sexually suggestive moments. YouTube’s algorithm played a role in that scandal as well: Once somebody happened upon these video and clicked one of the comment links, the sidebar of recommended videos would surface many others like it. The latest study, from researchers at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society, was conducted after Google removed comments from videos with minors. The study found that YouTube’s automatic video-recommendation system would surface otherwise innocuous home movies after a user watched sexually themed content. It resulted in a library of videos that sexualizes children, according to researchers in the report. Digital Media YouTube Tags Comment 1last_img read more


first_imgMark Lennihan/APFormer U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., leaves federal court following his sentencing on Monday in New York.A federal judge has sentenced disgraced former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner to 21 months in prison for sending obscene messages to a 15-year-old girl last year.The sexting case played a role in the 2016 presidential election. Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, who has filed for divorce, was a top aide to Hillary Clinton.Weiner pleaded guilty in New York federal court in May to the felony charge over transmitting sexually explicit messages to the North Carolina teenager as part of a plea agreement. As The Associated Press reported, he said at the time: “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse.”And as he heard U.S. District Judge Denise Cote pass sentence, Weiner “dropped his head into his hand and wept,” the news service says, adding that the New York Democrat must “surrender to prison officials by Nov. 6.”Prosecutors had sought a sentence of up to 27 months in prison, calling his conduct “very serious.”Weiner was aware that the victim was a high school student, according to court documents, yet he continued to exchange increasing lewd messages with her.“With full knowledge that he was communicating with a real 15-year-old girl, the defendant asked her to engage in sexually explicit conduct via Skype and Snapchat, where her body was on display, and where she was asked to sexually perform for him.”NPR’s Camila Domonoske has reported on Weiner’s history of sexting scandals:“In 2011, while serving in Congress, he accidentally tweeted to the world a photo of his boxer-clad erection. He initially claimed he was hacked before admitting he was trying to send it to a woman who was not his wife. It was the start of a spiraling scandal that tanked his political career and often brought a sense of deja vu to the news.“Again and again, he sent sexual messages to women, despite promising his family and his supporters that he would stop. Last year, he even sent salacious images of himself to a woman while his young son was next to him in bed — and visible in the shot. …“The sexting case unexpectedly played a prominent role in the election, after investigators looking into Weiner’s laptop found some of Abedin’s work emails.“Shortly before the election, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that the newly discovered emails needed to be examined, as part of the investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server. After reopening the probe, the FBI determined the emails on Weiner’s computer did not change the agency’s decision that no charges should be brought against Clinton.”Copyright 2017 NPR.
