for the scoreboard in right field The scoreboard had “Strem Field Dream Big” on it Norma Rodvik was the first to arrive with her daughter Nikki who was a high school classmate of Strem’s with special needs “You going to get a picture of Nikki throwing out the first pitch” Norma asked“You bet” Ryan repliedJohn Mellencamp’s song “Pink House” was booming over the speaker In the refrain Mellencamp sang “Ain’t that America home of the free” Soon more than 150 people armed with food drinks and jobs to do would be arriving at the Strem’s family farm so kids ages 2-14 could play baseball for free“Isn’t this great You just don’t get it in the big city” Strem said as he stood in the outfield looking at what he and a community had createdThat’s when commentator Josh Bolstad who has experience as an auctioneer came over the loudspeaker and joked “This whole night going to be media relations or are we going to play ball”It was a Tuesday night in Fertile MinnAt Strem Field there’s a scoreboard but no loser There are teams but no opponents There’s a crowd but no jeersThere’s baseball but there’s so much moreStrem a 1997 Fertile-Beltrami High School graduate really never played baseball growing up but his 10-year-old son Bryer loves it For his eighth birthday Bryer wanted to play a baseball game so Ryan made his youngest child a baseball field“His parents have a huge front lawn so he made a little field there” said Kylie who has been married to Ryan for 17 years “He painted a Twins sign on it and the kids thought it was a pretty big deal to have a field They kept wanting to play again We didn’t want to keep making a Tuesday-night tradition in his parents’ front lawn so we moved it to the farm which wasn’t being used It was a great way to make use of a beautiful spot” Driving north on Highway 32 the second left upon entering Fertile will bring you to a paved road along the north side of Sandhill River Golf Course The road turns to gravel leading to the farm that has been in the Strem family for more than a century This is where Ryan built Strem Field while being a real estate agent owner of a family truckstop and billboard business husband and father of three children“This doesn’t get done by just me” Ryan said “It’s my hobby It’s my passion I’ll mow this my dad will mow this We’ll be planting corn striping it but it’s the joy of seeing kids come out and entertaining and laughing and get really into a good baseball game” Last June the free baseball began at Strem Field It runs from the end of June to the end of August each Tuesday at around 6 pmThere is non-stop laughter and cheering but the details of gameday are taken seriously and require a community Alex Schmalenberg Nick Aakhus and Jeff Haaven switch off doing scoreboard

people bring drinks cookies and other treats This Tuesday was “Taco In a Bag Night” As for the field Strem got help from guys who work at the golf course to keep up the sprinkler system bought an old scoreboard from one school and was given bleachers from the 1950s from another He grew the corn in the outfield When 6 pm rolls around Strem waves all the kids on the field questioning the ones clinging to their mom’s leg or hiding near the fence if they really don’t want to play They always end up running on the fieldStrem splits up the kids by age The kids in third grade and below get to play first They each get two at bats with no at bat ending until they make contact Well not technically seeing as 2-year-old Kolby Cook decided to take off his helmet and walk away in the middle of his first at batHis 4-year-old brother Brody didn’t want to play defense until his dad told him he doesn’t get a hot dog unless he plays the field That’ll happen in the first portion of the night as will kids running around the bases still holding the bat laying down in the outfield grass and playing with the dirt in the infield The crowd loves every second of it“For baseball the younger generations it’s not as popular as it used to be” said Aaron Cook who is Kolby and Brody’s dad and also the Win-E-Mac athletic director “This makes it fun for them to want to come play The old kids help out the younger kids when they’re coming in everyone is cheering for everyone There’s no winners no losers It gets them interested and it’s fun for them”Dinner is served to whoever wants it after the little kids get their two at bats as the older kids — fourth through eighth graders — begin a nine-inning game Haaven who works the scoreboard and is Ryan’s brother-in-law brings his 7-year-old Connor every week“It’s great to get the kids out and doing something instead of sitting in front of electronics” Haaven said “It teaches them team chemistry and team building Plus it’s good to get the practice They look forward to it every Tuesday This is a pretty big deal I think back to when I was that age how cool something like this would’ve been It’s pretty fun to be able to do this for them” There’s a map of the United States in the shed near the field with pins in it of where people have traveled from to play on Strem Field Ryan says the field is for anyone on that map “All that work that goes up to it is priceless” Ryan said “We want to keep it a novelty We start in the end of June and go through the last week of August It’s once a week with whoever can make it within any

removal The Minister of Petroleum Resources Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke yesterday said the Farouk Lawan-led House of Representatives ad hoc committee which probed the oil subsidy was unfair to her The minister said it was the late President Umar Musa Yar’Adua who refused to punish his Minister of Petroleum Resources Dr Rilwan Lukman for allegedly failing to comply with his directive on the removal of kerosene subsidy in June 2009 She said the House was unfair to her and President Goodluck Jonathan for not complying with the law which she insisted has nothing to do with them The minister spoke in Abuja at the Ministerial Platform marking this year’s National Democracy Day and the first anniversary of the Jonathan administration Madueke said: “There was an issue on the directive of the late President in terms of the removal of kerosene subsidy which happened apparently in June 2009 before I was appointed Minister of Petroleum Now under Section 6 of the Petroleum Act the Minister of Petroleum may by notice publish in the official gazette fix the price of petroleum products which means that for it to actually become a law the minister must publish that that petroleum product price has changed “I do not recall and I don’t think anybody in the country recalls any such directive published in 2009 It is not something that has to be hidden because it has to by law be published Therefore if it is not published by law and it is not in the gazette it is not a directive that can be legally complied with Many months have passed and the former minister did not comply with the direct of the President “The President also did not put in place any punitive measures obviously for good reasons He must have had very good reasons not to do that So it is very odd that a new administration and a new President and a new minister are being accused of flouting the law which was given in the past to a minister and has nothing to do with us” On the deduction of funds from source by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) the minister said the position of the House is subject to interpretation in line with the Appropriation Act According to her only a court of competent jurisdiction is vested in the judiciary of this country Mrs Alison-Madueke the court may therefore take a different view of the position of the House which she said was “unfair to conclude that the minister myself did not take appropriate steps to stop the practice which by the way had been on before I came to office” On fuel subsidy removal she noted that there is no 100per cent removal of petrol subsidy at the moment According to her the pump price is N97 per litre the landing cost of the crude is about N141; and the fuel is about N141 per litre The minister insisted that the Federal Government is still paying subsidy She said there are bridging costs because it is difficult to get the product in some parts of the country Mrs Alison-Madueke said the government has no plans to rush into a total removal of petrol subsidy to avoid the type of the January 1 nationwide protests The minister said the Federal Government would examine the matter with stakeholders for some months She added: “From our point of view I think it is actually a security issue quite a bit You may have heard that even two or three days ago I called a major meeting of oil multi-nationals and indigenous operators and the service chiefs to discuss the very high incidents of oil bunkering or theft We have immediately set up a very high level internal task force to begin to look at creating solutions for dealing with the longstanding problem” The task force according to her will tackle oil theft by foreigners On Greenfield refineries Mrs Alison-Madueke said the ministry has changed the structure of 66per cent equity in the project adding that the arrangement is on course Some human interest groups have accused prominent Hausa-Fulani politicians of encouraging and sponsoring the activities of the Boko Haram militants The groups at a joint press conference held in Lagos to mark the United Nations Day of indigenous communities over the weekend called on Nigerians to reject any politician linked with the outlawed militants during the 2015 general elections The groups which include the Green Peoples Environmental Network Southern Nigerian Ethnic Nationality Alliance O’odua Nationalist Coalition the Coalition of Nigerian Civil Right Groups and the United Middle Belt Youth Congress noted that crisis in the Maghreb region and Boko Haram activities had led to the death of many innocent civilians In a joint press statement signed by Olu Sulaiman Michael Popoola Ovie Godfrey and Hycinth Chiluba the group vowed to begin intensive campaign against extremists who might want to contest in 2015 They said “We assert our full support only for a presidential candidate that will restructure Nigeria and guarantee ethnic self-determination Any candidate that does not support full resource control by the communities that produce them must be opposed with all our strength” The groups noted that a statement recently credited to spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum Prof Ango Abdullahi that the Hausa-Fulani will “never return power to the South” once the region obtained it showed arrogance and must be resisted by Nigerians “We condemn in strong terms the current realignment of political forces which has not taken into consideration the interests of indigenous peoples but has been tailored only to promote the wishes and aspirations of the northern caliphate against the genuine interest of the indigenous communities “It said Hausa-Fulani political groups are interested in nothing but a system that will sustain and oil their own parochial and self-serving interests” They further affirmed that “little wonder that the violent Boko Haram has become a political scare crow for a section of the Hausa-Fulani political class The responses of the northern caliphate to the series of bombings have been that of cold complicity” the statement added It was oddly empowering as a user to see the chief of a tech platform that is so intimately integrated with our lives being put through the grind by lawmakers over breach of trust and privacy Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony and joint hearing before the US Senate’s Commerce and Judiciary committees on Tuesday is an important marker in technology’s evolutionary journey and growing power to shape the future of human lives There might have been some amount of Capitol Hill political theatre involved but there’s no harm in a bit of a spectacle The process of subjecting high and mighty Silicon Valley tech influencers to well-publicised grilling is essential for democracies It simultaneously warns people against believing in tech nirvana and restores faith in democracies’ ability to protect the rights of the people Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before a joint Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees in Washington Reuters Sitting in India where these rights are not even clearly defined — leave alone enforcement — the spectacle carried an added significance showing us the distance that we still have to travel Yet we don’t have enough time India is already Facebook’s largest market with the highest number of users It was gratifying to see the 33-year-old billionaire show contrition deference and remorse for his lapses and promising a reformation in Facebook’s handling of users’ privacy More so because in trading our privacy for convenience networking and community bonding we really hadn’t understood or cared for the underlying risks It is only when these digital ecosystems started taking over our lives that we woke up to the fact that so much of our data has been handed over to the platforms that we made ourselves vulnerable to being manipulated Given technology’s integration with human lives it is impractical to suggest a return to utopian innocence Yet clearly there is need for an urgent change Does the answer lie in a more regulated platform a thorough change in privacy rules or transformation of the business model The grilling was partly an effort to search for answers The room in the Senate Office Building packed with Congressional staff members the wider public lined up outside and millions more watching on live television with Zuckerberg perched on the hot seat became an arena for a futuristic battle The Facebook CEO had dressed for the part He also appeared calm and composed under relentless hours-long questioning though the nervousness was betrayed by the occasional reaching out for a gulp of water Here he was a Silicon Valley representative — a new age Yoda of 21st century technology — and those around him trying to at once to question him and getting educated in return And that is also where the grilling failed in its primary purpose For all their stated and unstated hostility the senators of US — the world’s most tech-aware nation — appeared as tech-challenged dinosaurs Barring a few most elderly members had zero knowledge of technology with the result that most questions failed to dive beneath a surface understanding of Facebook’s machinations The Senators were clearly out of their depth and in some cases it resulted in hilarious exchanges Senator for Utah Orrin Hatch wanted to know how Facebook sustains a business model while running as a free service Zuckerberg struggling to retain composure responded: "Senator we run ads" "I see that’s great…" replied Hatch Mark Zuckerberg is now living out every young person’s worst nightmare: trying to explain how tech stuff works to the nation’s elderly — Robby Soave (@robbysoave) April 10 2018 Senator Lindsey Graham one of the better prepared ones wanted to know if Facebook runs a monopoly but his analogy of car manufactures fell woefully short of understanding the digital ecosystem that Facebook straddles It resulted in another bewildering exchange Senator John Kennedy had a number of suggestion for Zuckerberg on tightening of data privacy only to be told in return that all those options were already available Kennedy: Are you willing to go back and and work on giving me a greater right to erase my data Zuckerberg: Senator you can already delete any of the data that’s there or delete all of your data Kennedy: Are you willing to expand that work on expanding that Zuckerberg: Senator I think we already do what you’re referring to… Kennedy: Are you willing to expand my right to know who you’re sharing my data with Zuckerberg: Senator we already give you a list of apps that you’re using And you signed into those yourself and provided affirmative consent Kennedy: Are you willing to give me the right to take my data on Facebook and move it to another social media platform Zuckerberg: Senator you can already do that Lost in the translation were crucial questions on why Facebook had been casual about data protection which led to Cambridge Analytica gaining private information of 87 million users worldwide (56 lakh Indians) abuse of privacy and specific steps that Zuckerberg plans to take on a range of issues that are involved in Facebook’s process of collecting data and monetizing it Between the lawmakers’ stated intention on grilling Zuckerberg and their inability to understand the workings of Facebook there was enough space for the 33-year-old billionaire to exploit and escape by peddling homilies For instance when Senator Dean Heller wanted to know what are Zuckreberg’s core principles in trading off users’ data with advertisers for monetisation the Facebook CEO replied that his company doesn’t "sell" data at all and proceeded to give an explanation on the differences between the way sellers and app developers access Facebook’s data Senator Heller: Have you ever drawn the line on selling data to an advertiser Zuckerberg: Yes Senator We don’t sell data at all… So the way the ad system work is advertisers can come to us and say I have a message that I’m trying to reach a certain type of people They might be interested in something they might live in a place and then we help them get that message in front of people But this is one of the. it’s widely mischaracterised about our system that we sell data And it’s actually one of the most important parts of how Facebook works is that we do not sell data Advertisers do not get access to people’s individual data" As CNN’s Dylan Byers writes: "Whenever a lawmaker pointed out something Facebook had done wrong he spoke about what the company was doing to make it right Whenever he couldn’t answer a question he simply promised to get back to lawmakers later" If Zuckerberg’s intention was to obfuscate from the real issue — Facebook’s corrosive business model that puts advertisers’ interest ahead of users — and steer conversation towards "making his company better" (a subjective and vague position) then he made a fabulous job of it He set the tone during the testimony ahead of the hearing Zuckerberg focused on Facebook’s stated purpose: to connect people and build businesses and communities but he didn’t talk explicitly about the motivation behind that purpose — which is to monetise users "Facebook is an idealistic and optimistic company For most of our existence we focused on all the good that connecting people can bring" What he didn’t say was that Facebook isn’t a philanthropic platform that seeks only to bring people together but a program that seeks to harness the power of data If we note his testimony carefully it becomes evident that Zuckerberg has no plans to revamp the business model "It’s not enough to just connect people we have to make sure those connections are positive It’s not enough to just give people a voice we have to make sure people aren’t using it to hurt people or spread misinformation" In other words Facebook still wants to be the custodian of data when developments over the years clearly show that it has done a terrible job of it Zuckerberg did not say that he will prioritise users over advertisers only insisted that he will try to ensure that it is not misused But when the custodian itself is under scrutiny such evasive tactics do not do enough to address the heart of the problem The prospect is scarier in India Facebook’s largest market where politicians have failed to ensure even a rudimentary framework for data protection Facebook revelation in India has triggered a lot of debate but those have been restricted to largely political bickering among parties Not a single policy issue has been taken up for discussion Zuckerberg promised to uphold the sanctity of elections in India but we only have his word to go by From what we have learnt that doesn’t account for much Kolkata:The BJP on Friday ridiculed West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s call to "oust" the party from the country and claimed that her Trinamool Congress had been "reduced to a signboard" in Tripura where it tried to expand its base File image of Mamata Banerjee PTI "She (Banerjee) had earlier given a Modi hatao desh bachao(get rid of Modi save the country) call but the BJP won in four more states (after that) We are ready to fight her politics of appeasement and communalism" said West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh Commenting on Banerjee’s "oust the BJP" call at a public rally on Friday Ghosh said the saffron party came to power at the Centre and 18 states through a democratic process "The TMC tried to expand its base in Tripura but was reduced to a signboard there Now she (Banerjee) is calling for an ouster of the BJP This is funny" he added Six sacked TMC MLAs in Tripura had voted for NDA nominee Ram Nath Kovind in the 17 July presidential election "In the presidential poll there was cross-voting in West Bengal as well She (Banerjee) should take lessons from it" Ghosh said adding that the TMC chief should see whether she would remain in power in the state or not As a counter to the TMC’s "oust the BJP" programme he said the state unit of the saffron party would launch a campaign on 9 August against the "appeasement policy" of the ruling party in West Bengal Refuting Banerjee’s claim that India’s relations with foreign countries had deteriorated during the Modi rule Ghosh said "On the contrary Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy is respected all over the world" He alleged that the TMC was "obstructing" the development programmes of the Centre and accused Banerjee of "indulging in corrupt practices"
