This time it is her own appointed Senator, DNA leader Branville McCartney, a fellow FNM defector who talks tough to Butler Turner and speaks frankly to the Nassau Guardian in a one on one. Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting The confusion has elicited this from Minister Glennis Hanna Martin in the House of Assembly this week, “I’m one of those people I don’t explain much in him, and I sat and, you in Long Island, take a break man, you’ve got your hands full, don’t get in my business, don’t get in my business, you’ve got your hands full, sort out your business man, you’ve got a complicated life right now.” McCartney in reference to some comments made by Butler Turner that she was thrown under the bus by him, said that he reached out to her about the statement made in the House of Assembly. It appears to be some mix up over what he said and then what she said, after he reportedly said whatever it is that he said… not the kind of interactions Bahamians need to see so close to a General Election. Earlier this week it was reported that Neko Grant and Dr. Andre Rollins are both at odds with Loretta Butler Turner, who formed a political coup, many call it, to have Hubert Minnis removed as Opposition Leader of Business in the House of Assembly; it worked. Butler-Turner has since December 11, 2016 been Opposition Leader in the House. #MagneticMediaNews We pulled that audio (quote) from a 20-second video of Hanna Martin which is in wide social media circulation, where the Minister appears to be shutting down comments from across the aisle from the Long Island Member.

But some observant viewers watching along with the livestream may have noticed a certain superhero in the audience — Captain America himself, Chris Evans. And his beard is back, which makes us wonder if we might see it again in Avengers: Endgame even though he’s clean-shaven in all the trailers so far. And fans on Twitter reacted accordingly.

Tags The Facebook chief used the interview to push back against the idea that his company should determine what constitutes political speech. He’s previously called for more government regulation around political speech and advertising. “I think setting the rules around political advertising is not a company’s job,” he told host George Stephanopoulos. “There have been plenty of rules in the past. It’s just at this point they’re not updated to the modern threats that we face. We need new rules.”The topic has been on the minds of Facebook’s leadership and of social media watchers in recent days. Over the weekend, The Washington Post published a Zuckerberg op-ed that urged government officials to take a more active role in setting standards for the handling of election-related content, both legitimate and ill-intentioned. Meanwhile, lawmakers like Sen. Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, have said that big platforms like Facebook should be subject to levels of regulation that match their size and influence. Facebook has more than 2 billion users worldwide.Existing laws, he said, primarily focus on a candidate and the election. “But that’s not primarily what we saw Russia trying to do,” Zuckerberg said. “What we saw them doing was talking about divisive political issues. The goal … was just to rile people up and be divisive.”Zuckerberg also warned that other countries would likely try to interfere in the election.”Well, what I can guarantee is that they’re definitely going to try,” he said. “Our job is to make the defenses stronger and stronger, to make it harder for them to do what they’re doing.”Other scandalsFacebook’s controversies are about more than just politics. On Wednesday, security researchers from UpGuard found that Facebook data containing more than 540 million records was posted in a public database on Amazon cloud servers.When asked about the findings from the security researchers, Zuckerberg said the company was still looking into the issue. “In general, we work with developers to make sure that they’re respecting people’s information and using it in only ways that they want,” he said.Facebook also drew criticism over the use of its livestreaming service during a terrorist attack in New Zealand that killed 50 Muslims at two mosques. Zuckerberg suggested that delaying livestreams might have consequences for users who don’t stream violent content. “It would also fundamentally break what livestreaming is for people,” he said. “Most people are livestreaming, you know, a birthday party or hanging out with friends when they can’t be together.”Facebook declined to comment beyond what Zuckerberg said during the broadcast.Originally published April 4, 7:27 a.m. PT.Updates, 7:57 a.m.: Adds background information and more details from the interview; 12:41 p.m.: Includes more details from the interview.

Aurelien Morissard/Getty Images Facebook has failed to thwart election meddling before, but the 2020 US presidential election will give the social network another chance to demonstrate it’s on the right track.CEO Mark Zuckerberg said his company has “learned a lot” since the 2016 election, which Russia meddled in by having trolls post divisive content to the platform. In an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America on Thursday, Zuckerberg said he’s “confident” his company is ready to combat any election interference in the upcoming campaign season.Facebook has strengthened its safeguards, requiring advertisers to verify their identities if they run political ads. It’s also rolled out a searchable database showing who paid for advertising and what audience it reached.”The systems, overall, have just gotten quite robust,” Zuckerberg said. “I think we, at this point, have probably some of the most-advanced systems of any company or government in the world for preventing the kind of tactics that Russia and now other countries as well have tried.”The changes haven’t been without issues; businesses have complained that their commercial ads have been misclassified, and media outlets have found loopholes that can be exploited.

Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer SinghReuters/ Varinder ChawlaRanbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are two contemporaries, who are having a gala time as far as their career is concerned. Both the actors have delivered blockbusters in the form of their last movies, and now are ready with some highly anticipated upcoming movies.Ranbir broke several box office records with his last film Sanju. While he was having a dull phase in his career, Sanju brought him back on track. On the other side, Ranveer has been giving back to back hit movies with critically acclaimed performances.After Padmaavat, Ranveer maintained his box office dominance with Simmba and Gully Boy. He is currently one of the most successful stars of this generation.Now, both the two stars have a couple of movies in their kitty, making each other highly competitive for each other. To talk about Ranbir, he has two confirmed upcoming movies – Brahmastra and Shamshera.Both the films will present the actor in never-seen-before avatars. While Brahmastra is a super-hero film, Ranbir will be seen playing the character of a dacoit. Both the films are likely to have a great deal of VFX, and strong storyline. Hence, the two flicks are expected to create more box office records. Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer SinghMeanwhile, Ranveer also has two forthcoming films in his kitty – 83 and Takht. Based on India’s first Cricket World Cup victory in 1983, the movie 83 will present him playing the role of Kapil Dev. The film is highly awaited and is likely to create a storm at the box office. Similar is the case with multi-starrer Takht as it is also expected to become one of the biggest hits of Bollywood.With such movies in pipeline, it is difficult to predict if Ranbir will overshadow Ranveer in coming days or vice versa.
Twitter/Shashi TharoorDefense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman visited Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday after the Congress leader was hospitalised after injuring his head during a temple ceremony.Saying that “civility was a rare virtue in politics”, Tharoor thanked Sithramaran in a tweet for visiting him in the hospital and enquiring about his health. Sitharaman is currently in Kerala campaigning for the Bharatiya Janata Party ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections which will be held in a single phase on April 23. Tharoor’s rival LDF leader C Divakaran had also called him up on Tuesday morning to express concern for his well-being. The latter tweeted thanking him for his concerns. Tharoor will be defending the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha seat against Divakaran.

This ritual expects a person to sit on one plate of a balance and banana will be weighed against him on the other plate till it reaches the person’s weight. Tharoor hurt himself when the balance broke and fell on his head. It required six stitches.
