#UK #CPS To Treat Online Abuse as Seriously as Hate Crime in today’s society after public concern about the increasing amount of racist, anti-religious, homophobic and transphobic attacks on social media #AceNewsDesk reports

Ace News Services

#AceNewsReport – Aug.21: The UK’s Crown Prosecution Service has pledged to tackle online abuse with the same seriousness as it does hate crimes committed in the flesh #AceNewsDesk reports

https://t.me/acenewsgroup/44621 From a report: Published on August 21, 2017 at 06:00AM: Following public concern about the increasing amount of racist, anti-religious, homophobic and transphobic attacks on social media, the CPS has today published a new set of policy documents on hate crime. This includes revised legal guidance for prosecutors on how they should make decisions on criminal charges and handle cases in court. The rules officially put online abuse on the same level as offline hate crimes — defined as an action motivated by hostility or prejudice — like shouting abuse at someone face-to-face. They commit the CPS to prosecuting complaints about online material “with the same robust and proactive approach used with online offending.” Prosecutors are told to…

Invisible Artillery: Army Wants Electronic Warfare At All Levels

To Inform is to Influence

The Army’s NERO program tested a converted Navy jammer on a Grey Eagle drone, the Army version of the Predator.

on August 21, 2017 at 11:01 AM

Both centers are involved in the network review as well as the EW review. But “they are really separate … occurring in parallel,” said Col. Sean Keenan, the chief of staff of the Army’s cyber & electronic warfare directorate in the Pentagon.

The EW review is also at an earlier stage. “We are just beginning to identify…some of what we think may be gaps,” said Dotson. The review team is still figuring out the scope of the problem and estimating how long its work will take. Its final recommendations are due back to Gen. Milley “late this year, early next year,” said Dotson, but the exact date is still…

The £20,000 benefit bonus rewards for the metropolitan elite at the Department of Work and Pensions

David Hencke

neil couling Neil Couling – £145,000 a year

CROSS POSTED ON BYLINE.COM

Last week I had a story in the Sunday Mirror about top bonuses and pay rises for five of the most senior  and well paid civil servants at the Department of Work and Pensions over the last two years.

The information was published in the annual report and accounts  of the DWP released last month. These same accounts were qualified for the 29th year  running according to the the National Audit Office – because of fraud and error in payouts to claimants rendered them inaccurate and wrong.

The bonuses announcement came at the same time as 31 Labour MPs had called for a pause in the roll out of the ministry’s new Universal Credit  programme – which replaces five benefits – because of reported chaos in its administration…

Philippines: Abu Sayyaf Militants Kill 9, Wound 16

Peace and Freedom

ZAMBOANGA, Philippines — Philippine officials say Abu Sayyaf militant gunmen have killed at least nine people and wounded 16 others in a dawn attack in a remote village in the country’s restive south.

Military officials say about 20 Abu Sayyaf gunmen opened fire on villagers and burned five houses and a village hall in the attack early Monday in Tubigan village in Maluso town on Basilan island. The attackers fled and were being pursued by troops.

Military commander Col. Juvymax Uy said the militants may have staged the attack to retaliate against communities they think were not supportive of them following a series of battle setbacks.

The Abu Sayyaf has been blacklisted by the United States and the Philippines as a terrorist organization for ransom kidnappings, beheadings, bombings and other violence.

The Writers Circle: Eclipse Day, 2017!

Today's Author

TWC
One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Today, a large part of the continental United States will experience a total or partial solar eclipse. Many people are flocking to areas that will experience the total eclipse while others are planning to experience it at events closer to their homes.  Will you be using this eclipse to help inspire your writing in some way? What are your favorite stories that feature solar eclipses (if you have any)?

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our…
