Il est supposé être en cinquième année.Robert Kosasky, directeur de St. Andrew’s et Rodney Glasgow, directeur du collège et responsable de la diversité, a adressé une lettre aux familles de St. Andrew’s confirmant que le jeune Trump allait devenir membre de la Promotion 2024, a annoncé CNN.Le Washington Post a annoncé que la Maison-Blanche souhaitait annoncer la nouvelle pendant l’été une fois l’année scolaire terminée à St. Andrew’s, en partie de crainte que l’école puisse devenir le théâtre de manifestations. Mais les parents se sont mis à poser des questions lorsque des rumeurs ont commencé à circuler et l’école a décidé de confirmer l’inscription de Barron Trump. Selon CNN, l’école avait obtenu l’autorisation de la famille Trump pour le faire.Melania Trump a déclaré après l’annonce que la famille « est très heureuse » que Barron Trump puisse fréquenter une école qui, a-t-elle dit « est reconnue pour sa communauté diversifiée et son engagement envers l’excellence de son enseignement ». La mission de l’école qui est « de connaître et d’inspirer chaque enfant dans une communauté inclusive consacrée à un enseignement, un apprentissage et un service exceptionnels » a attiré la famille, a-t-elle confié.Donald Trump a été élevé dans la tradition presbytérienne.

Selon les informations figurant sur le site Web de l’école, la taille moyenne des classes est de 15 élèves et le ratio élève-enseignant est de 7 à 1. Les frais de scolarité se situent juste en dessous de 40 000 dollars pour les élèves de la sixième à la huitième année.L’école dispose d’un Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, dont la priorité est définie comme : « veiller à ce que la totalité des enseignants de St. Andrew’s – de la maternelle à la douzième année – reçoivent (chaque année scolaire) formation et développement professionnel continu en science de l’éducation, de l’esprit et de l’activité cérébrale, une approche des plus novatrices étant appliquée aujourd’hui à l’amélioration de la qualité des enseignants et de la réussite des élèves.

3 ways Facebook and other social media companies could clean up…

By Anthony M. Nadler, Ursinus College and Matthew Crain, Miami UniversityEditor’s Note: This article is republished from The Conversation.Facebook is in crisis mode, but the company can take major steps to fix itself – and the global community it says it wants to promote. Facebook founder, CEO and majority shareholder Mark Zuckerberg need not wait for governments to impose regulations. If he and other industry leaders wanted to, they could make meaningful changes fairly quickly.It wouldn’t be painless, but Facebook in particular is in a world of hurt already, facing criticism for contributing to civil unrest and sectarian turmoil around the world, delayed responses to disinformation campaigns, misleading users about data-handling policies, and efforts to discredit critics – not to mention a budding employee revolt.Facebook, Twitter, Google and other social media companies are causing society-wide damage. But they tend to describe the problems as much smaller, resulting from rogue individuals and groups hijacking their systems for nefarious purposes. Our research into how social media can be exploited by manipulative political operatives, conducted with Joan Donovan at the Data & Society research institute, suggests the real problem is much larger than these companies admit.We believe the roots lie in their extremely profitable advertising systems, which need a major overhaul. We have identified some key changes that these giant powerhouses could make right away. These moves could reduce opportunities for political manipulation and limit the harm to democratic societies around the world.Users’ minds in the crosshairsFacebook, Google, Twitter and other social media companies have built an enormous digital influence machine powered by user tracking, targeting, testing and automated decision-making to make advertising more effective and efficient. While building this supercharged surveillance system, companies have promised users and regulators that targeted advertising is mutually beneficial for both consumers and advertisers.In this bargain, users are supposed to receive more relevant ads. Facebook, for instance, explains that its “interest-based advertising” serves users who “want to see ads that relate to things they care about.” It’s true that these methods can identify ads that connect with users’ actual interests. But the very same data-driven techniques that tell a surfer about a new board design can also identify strategic points where people are most vulnerable to influence.In particular, the leading social media advertising systems let political operatives experiment with different ads to see which are the most effective. They can use these tools not only to see if certain issues resonate with particular targets but also test for fears or prejudices that can be invoked to influence political behavior.This misleading ad impersonated racial justice activists to urge black Americans not to vote for Hillary Clinton.U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Intelligence – DemocratsOne key way to do this is to make people feel that someone else represents an emotionally charged threat to their identity. In 2016, for instance, Russia-linked operatives bought thousands of Facebook ads targeted to specific audiences suggesting Hillary Clinton had insulted their group’s dignity or threatened their safety. Some ads alleged Clinton espoused disrespect for specific occupations, like coal miners, or racial groups, like African-Americans. Others claimed she would confiscate guns or supported radical political movements seeking to overturn familiar ways of life.Targeting political ads is not unique to online advertising, but the tools of digital ad systems are vastly more powerful than traditional mass media. Advertisers can try out several versions of an ad simultaneously and receive almost instant feedback on which ones most effectively drive specific audiences to share, like or comment on them. This digital feedback loop helps political operatives refine their tactics, probing for just the right images, words and emotions to influence very specific subgroups of citizens.Move fast and fix thingsMembers of Congress and even some key Silicon Valley figures have begun discussing the need for tighter government oversight and greater accountability in digital advertising. Change need not wait for politics.Based on our analysis, here are some steps companies could take right away – on their own. These moves may hurt the firms’ finances, but would demonstrate serious and lasting commitment to limiting their platforms’ usefulness in political manipulation campaigns.As their first move, social media companies could stop allowing their ad services to be used as freewheeling experimental laboratories for examining their users’ psyches. Just as marketers and academic researchers must obtain permission from their test subjects, political advertisers that run online ad experiments could get informed consent in advance from every user who is involved. Companies should ask for users’ consent in specific notifications about ad experiments and not penalize users for opting out by limiting their access to services. We suspect many users would opt out of these tests if given the choice, but in any case this policy would help draw public attention to the hidden manipulation tools that platforms offer to their real customers: the political and commercial advertisers who pay the bills.Make targeted political advertising transparentTo increase transparency and limit the ability of special interests to secretly influence politics, social media companies could refuse to work with so-called dark money groups. All political advertisers should be required to disclose their major donors in a format users can easily access.A new policy banning dark money ads would respond to evidence that political operatives have used impersonation and manipulative ad tactics to stir in-fighting or sow division among coalitions of their adversaries. Impersonation clearly work best when ad sponsors are able to hide their identities and motives. Anonymous ads are also more likely to violate ethical standards simply because no one fears being held responsible for them.Make platforms more democraticA more significant change social media companies could make would be to introduce democratic oversight of how they collect and use people’s data.Facebook’s Zuckerberg recently took an initial step in this direction, announcing that he will create independent review panels to handle users’ appeals against the company’s removal of content it judges inappropriate. He explained that he wanted to ensure “these decisions are made in the best interests of our community and not for commercial reasons.”Whatever you think about this plan – and it has been greeted with plenty of skepticism – Zuckerberg’s reasoning acknowledges that because social platforms have become so central to democratic life, their own policies and design decisions require democratic accountability.A more ambitious vision would let independent ethics panels representing diverse communities of users set enforceable policies for ethical political advertising. Similar sorts of groups are common in medicine and are emerging in artificial intelligence, among other fields. The details of how such committees operate will be critical to their success. If these committees are set up in partnership with nonprofit organizations with proven records of advocating for democratic communication and campaign finance transparency, perhaps they could help social media companies earn greater public trust by prioritizing democracy over maximizing their profits.

At the centre of the armour, a pergola bathes in natural light. A frosted glass corridor on the upper floor distributes the circulation to the bedrooms. The armour allows to have no columns and therefore to take advantage of the entire interior and exterior social area and to experience the whole terrain in its length and width.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe house has cross-ventilation since all the windows are mounted in the walls and the lattice has manual movement, which allows light to enter while giving privacy.

As such, our guidance includes the expected impact of the COVID‑19 pandemic on our business and results of operations based on information available to us today. See the section titled “Forward-Looking Statements” below for information on the factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially. A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, many of the costs and expenses that may be incurred in the future. These items necessary to reconcile such non-GAAP measures could be material and have a significant impact on the Company’s results computed in accordance with GAAP. Conference Call and Webcast Elastic’s executive management team will host a conference call today at 2:00 p.m. PT/ 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss the Company’s financial results and business outlook.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In particular, free cash flow is not a substitute for cash used in operating activities. Additionally, the utility of free cash flow as a measure of our liquidity is further limited as it does not represent the total increase or decrease in our cash balance for a given period. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison. A reconciliation of our historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with U.S. GAAP has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. Investors are cautioned that there are a number of limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures and key metrics as analytical tools. Investors are encouraged to review these reconciliations, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business. Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Non-GAAP Gross Margin We define non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin as GAAP gross profit and GAAP gross margin, respectively, excluding stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on employee stock transactions, and amortization of acquired intangible assets. We believe non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin provide our management and investors consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitate period-to-period comparisons of operations, as these metrics generally eliminate the effects of certain variables from period to period for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. Non-GAAP Operating Loss and Non-GAAP Operating Margin We define non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP operating margin as GAAP operating loss and GAAP operating margin, respectively, excluding stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on employee stock transactions, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and acquisition-related expenses. We believe non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP operating margin provide our management and investors consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitate period-to-period comparisons of operations, as these metrics generally eliminate the effects of certain variables from period to period for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. Non-GAAP Net Loss Per Share We define non-GAAP net loss per share as GAAP net loss per share, excluding stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on employee stock transactions, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses and the tax effects related to the foregoing. We believe non-GAAP net loss per share provides our management and investors consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations, as this metric generally eliminates the effects of certain variables from period to period for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. Free Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow Margin Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net cash (used in) provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. Free cash flow margin is calculated as free cash flow divided by total revenue. We believe that free cash flow and free cash flow margin are useful indicators of liquidity that provide information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated from our core operations that, after the purchases of property and equipment, can be used for strategic initiatives, including investing in our business and selectively pursuing acquisitions and strategic investments. Calculated Billings We define calculated billings as total revenue plus the increase in total deferred revenue as presented on or derived from our consolidated statements of cash flows less the (increase) decrease in total unbilled accounts receivable in a given period. Calculated billings exclude deferred revenue and unbilled accounts receivable acquired through acquisitions in the period of acquisition. We typically invoice our customers annually in advance, and to a lesser extent multi-year in advance, quarterly in advance, monthly in advance, monthly in arrears or upon delivery. Our management uses calculated billings to understand and evaluate our near-term cash flows and operating results. Constant Currency We compare the percent change in certain results from one period to another period using constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how our business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. In presenting this information, current and comparative prior period results are converted into United States dollars at the exchange rates in effect on the last day of our prior fiscal year, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective periods.

“It’s A Private App, If You Don’t Want To, Don’t Use It”: Delhi High Court on Plea Against WhatsApp’s Updated Privacy Policy

The single judge bench of Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva of the Delhi High Court asked the petitioner, Adv Chaitanya Rohilla who has challenged Whatsapp’s updated privacy policy, “What is your grievance? It’s a private app, don’t join it.”Justice Sachdeva further said to the petitioner, “I doubt that you have read any of the policies of any of the apps, you’ll be shocked as to what all you consent to, and it is all voluntary, if you don’t want, don’t use the app. I am yet to understand your concern. Until I understand it, I will not issue notice on your plea.”Asking the petitioner to elaborate its concerns agains the app, the judge asked, “What is the data you feel is going to be compromised?”Adv. Manohar Lal, appearing for Rohilla, replied, “Whatsapp shares information globally. Everything they gather from us is shared.” The court then said, “Mr. Lal, there are two issues. One is that your personal messages are looked into and shared. Two is that your browsing history is shared,” and asked him to explain what his issue was.When the petitioner replied that “they analyze browsing history and form an opinion about the user and share that”, the Court said, “All apps do that.” In reply to which, Rohilla’s counsel said that while in Europe and the US, WhatsApp is giving an option to accept or reject the updated policy, here in India, no such option is given.The court reiterated, “You have an option, don’t use the app,” and asked what the stand of the Information & Broadcasting Ministry was on the matter, to which ASG Chetan Sharma appearing for the I & B Ministry said that the issue needs analysing.WhatsApp and Facebook were represented by Sr. Adv. Kapil Sibal and Mukul Rohatgi respectively. While WhatsApp challenged the very maintainability of the petition stating that users had the option to use the business app or not, Facebook submitted that, “The app is completely safe to use. Let the petitioner be reassured that all chats between friends, relatives, etc will be encrypted and safe.”On the petitioner’s statement that there needs to be a law regulating these apps, Sr. Adv. Rohatgi said, “The High Court is not going to make laws, if you want new laws, go to the Parliament.”Stating that the court could not in any case hear the matter today, Justice Sachdeva directed for the case to be listed on Jan 25.The petition filed by Advocate Chaitanya Rohilla, states that the updated Policy gives the Company virtually a 360-degree profile into a person’s online activity. “This level of insight into a person’s private and personal activities is done without any government oversight at present or regulatory supervision. Moreover, in the absence of a data protection authority, it leaves the users with a company’s own assurances and privacy policies,” the plea states.Thus, he has urged the High Court to issue an injunction order, restraining WhatsApp from enforcing the updated privacy policy, with immediate effect. He has also sought guidelines/ directions to ensure that any change in Privacy Policy by WhatsApp is carried out strictly in accordance with the Fundamental Rights.Inter alia, he has sought a direction upon the Central Government to exercise of its powers under Section 79 (2) (c) read with Section 87 (2) (zg) of the Information Technology Act and ensure that WhatsApp does not share any data of its users with any third party or Facebook and its companies for any purpose whatsoever.WhatsApp updated its privacy policy on January 4, 2021 and made it compulsory for its users to accept its terms and conditions, failing which the accounts and services would be terminated after February 8, 2021 for the respective user. Later, following public outcry, WhatsApp informed that it was pushing back the new privacy policy and assured users that no accounts will be suspended on February 8.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
