New Delhi: As many as 293 big dams in the country are more than 100 years old, Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said on Monday as he introduced a bill on dam safety in Lok Sabha.The bill seeks to set up the National Dam Safety Authority for proper surveillance, inspection and maintenance of specified dams as well as address unresolved issues between states. Besides the National Dam Safety Authority, the government has proposed setting up a National Committee on Dam Safety to prevent dam failure-related disasters. According to the bill, the committee would maintain standards of dam safety and also evolve policies for ensuring the safety of dams.
MONTREAL – A museum exhibit ad featuring a painting by world-renowned artist Pablo Picasso was back online Friday after originally being rejected for violating Facebook’s anti-nudity policy, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts said.Museum spokeswoman Pascale Chasse said the advertisement was blocked by the company’s ad-review algorithm because it showed Picasso’s painting entitled, “Femmes a la toilette,” which features two nude women.The artwork, which is drawn in the artist’s cubist style, features two women grooming themselves against a red background.It is among the featured works in the museum exhibit, “From Africa to the Americas: Face-to-Face Picasso, Past and Present,” which ends in September.Chasse said her initial reaction to the rejection notice was one of surprise.“It’s true that there’s some nudity, but it’s in good taste,” she said in a phone interview. “It’s a very important work of Picasso recognized everywhere in the world.”“How can you be in museums all across the world, but you can’t be on Facebook?”Chasse said she found the situation slightly funny at first, but eventually contacted Facebook after two different ads were subsequently rejected by the company’s ad-review algorithm.She was eventually able to speak over the phone to a Facebook representative, and later received an email from Facebook stating that the original ad was being put back online.Facebook said in a statement it is reviewing its advertising standards in light of the incident.While Facebook’s advertising standards don’t allow nudity, even in paintings, the company suggested that exceptions could be made for fine art.“We want to make sure that museums and other institutions are able to share some of their most iconic paintings and (we) are currently reviewing our approach to nudity in paintings in ads on Facebook,” it read.Chasse said she was satisfied with how Facebook handled the incident, once she was able to finally speak to a human being rather than a machine.She added that the museum intends to follow up with Facebook to make sure its campaigns, and those of other museums, won’t be affected in the future.
Redshirt-junior opposite Andrew Lutz attempts to serve the ball during a match against Ball State Feb. 26 at St. John Arena. OSU lost, 3-1.Credit: Kathleen Martini / Oller reporterAfter five consecutive losses, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team finally got out of its slump, pulling out a pair home wins against Quincy and Lindenwood this weekend.Junior outside hitter Michael Henchy said the five losses motivated the team to work much harder in practice, which helped them bring home two wins.“Our most recent practices have been our most successful, and I think that our losses have made us work much harder,” Henchy said.The Buckeyes (10-13, 6-6) ended their weekend with a second victory this season against Lindenwood in St. Charles, Mo., 3-2.Henchy led the Buckeyes with a season-high 19 kills and added 12 digs, while redshirt-freshman middle blocker Driss Guessous finished second on the team with 14 kills of his own.Junior middle blocker Dustan Neary said concentration was a main contributor to the team’s wins this weekend.“We have had a lot of trouble focusing all of our attention on the match — this weekend I definitely saw a change in that, which I think made a huge impact on the outcome,” Neary said.The Buckeyes started off their alumni weekend with a 3-1 win against Quincy in Quincy, Ill., Friday.Nearly notched a career-best seven blocks, while Henchy finished with 11 kills and five block assists. Redshirt-junior opposite Andrew Lutz led the team with 12 kills and added nine digs, and Guessous had five blocks.With the season winding down and the Men’s Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Championships quickly approaching — it is set to begin April 18 — the Buckeyes need all the wins they can get to help with the seeding of the tournament.Coach Pete Hanson said if the Buckeyes win their remaining two league matches of the season against Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne and Loyola, they have a chance to be placed fourth going into the conference tournament.He added that the team is not focused on the tournament right now and still has a couple of matches remaining in the season before it can start preparing.“We are not looking that far ahead, we have to get through these matches one at a time. Thinking ahead to the tournament is a distraction when preparing for the next match,” Hanson said.OSU is next slated to take on IPFW Friday at 7 p.m.

It was almost like a cup final for them and they grew into the game.“We should still have had more composure and quality to see that through and get more goals. And we did press and had quite a few opportunities.“But the most important thing was to win and be in the draw for the next round.”
Politics Tech Industry Security Facebook FTC The FTC will reportedly allege Facebook deceived users about its use of their phone numbers. Angela Lang/CNET Facebook misled users about how it handled their phone numbers and gave insufficient information about a photo tagging tool, the Federal Trade Commission will reportedly allege in a complaint. The complaint will go along with a settlement the FTC reached with the social media giant last week, according to a Tuesday report by The Washington Post. In the complaint, regulators express concern with Facebook’s previous use of two-factor authentication, which provides users with a one-time password via text when they log on to the platform. Some advertisers were able to target Facebook users who added that contact information, perhaps without the users’ knowledge, people familiar with the matter told the Post. The FTC will also reportedly allege that Facebook didn’t provide enough information to users about being able to turn off a tool for identifying and suggesting photo tags. Sources told the Post they expect the FTC’s complaint and settlement with Facebook to be announced Wednesday. As part of the settlement, Facebook will reportedly be fined a record-setting $5 billion for its alleged privacy mishaps. The FTC began investigating Facebook last year following revelations that Cambridge Analytica, a UK political consultancy, accessed data from as many as 87 million Facebook users without their permission. The agency is looking into whether Facebook violated an agreement with the US government in which it pledged to improve its privacy practices.The FTC declined to comment. Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. 0 Share your voice Post a comment Tags

Matt Marton/APChicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel speaks during a January news conference. On Sunday he announced the city will sue the federal government in defense of its status as a so-called sanctuary city and against threats to withhold U.S. grant funds.Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel is pushing back against the federal government.On Monday, the city is filing suit against the Department of Justice, which announced it would withhold millions of dollars in police grant money from so-called sanctuary cities.Emanuel is suing because he says new rules for a federal crime-fighting grant go against the Constitution and the city’s values.“Chicago will not let our police officers become political pawns in a debate,” Emanuel said.Last week, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said grant applicants have to share information about undocumented immigrants to federal officials if they want the funding.But Emanuel said he refuses to choose between immigrant rights and having well-funded community police.“We’re going to act immediately,” Emanuel said, “to make sure that there’s a ruling by the court, as there’s been on other issues as relates to immigration and refugee policies — where the court has basically stopped the Trump administration in its tracks.”Chicago was expecting to get $3.2 million from the grant to help with crime fighting this year.“The Department of Justice cannot commandeer local law enforcement to carry out federal immigration law functions,” said Ed Siskel, the city’s lawyer. “We cannot be forced to violate our residents’ constitutional rights.”Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson also expressed concern about the application guidelines.“Our job is to investigate crime, our job is not to investigate immigration status or documentation,” Johnson said.Attorney General Sessions sent letters to four other cities last week warning them that they also wouldn’t be eligible for funding: Baltimore, Albuquerque, N.M, and San Bernardino and Stockton in California.A spokesman for the Department of Justice declined to comment.Copyright 2017 WBEZ.
