EU clears Apple plan to buy music app Shazam

BRUSSELS, Belgium --- The EU on Thursday approved US tech giant Apple's plan to buy leading song-recognition app Shazam, saying the move would not reduce choice for music streaming consumers. The bloc launched a detailed probe into the deal with London-based Shazam, worth a reported $400 million, in April, at the request of several EU states amid fears it could harm competition in an intensifying battle of streaming services. The Apple-Shazam investigation was another round in the ongoing tussle between Brussels and Silicon Valley as the European Union adopts tougher regulation for the likes of Facebook, Google and Amazon.

UN urges Facebook to ‘proactively’ fight hate speech

GENEVA, Switzerland --- The UN human rights chief urged Facebook Wednesday to more proactively address hate speech but warned against excessive regulation, after US President Donald Trump accused tech giants' platforms of bias against him. Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein's appeal follows a decision by Facebook this week to ban Myanmar's army chief and other top military brass named in a UN probe linking them to a possible "genocide" against Rohingya Muslims. The social media network is the prime source of news and information for many in the country, but has also been a platform for the army and Buddhist hardliners to spread hate speech against the Rohingya and other minorities. The s...Keep on reading: UN urges Facebook to ‘proactively’ fight hate speech.....»»

LOOK: Boston Celtics-inspired court opens in Valenzuela

It's a fusion of one of the greatest franchises in basketball history and the insatiable love of the Filipino for basketball. Last Thursday, June 15th, a Celtics-inspired covered court was opened in Ugong, Valenzuela City, through the effort of District 2 congressman Eric Martinez, a Celtics fan. The court is emblazoned with every element of 'Celtic Pride', from being painted with kelly green, to murals with immortal quotes from legends Larry Bird and Bill Russell. (Photo courtesy of Cong. Eric Martinez' Facebook account) Members of the Valenzuela Classic MPBL team, along with Martinez, opened the court, practicing on the newly-built hardwood. Posters of Celtic legends such as Robert Parish, Kevin McHale, Danny Ainge, Paul Pierce, Bob Cousy, among others, hang in the walls of the Shamrock Center.  A Celtics-inspired basketball court is never complete without the championship banners hanging from the rafters, showing their 17 titles, most in the NBA. In the video, Martinez, talking while wearing a Kyrie Irving jersey, named the local team as the Ugong Miners, reflecting on their history of quarrying and mining in the area. "We'll pass the next generation of great basketball players in the city of Valenzuela, and who knows, PBA players, or dream for the NBA," the politician said. Despite not adorning the signature parquet floor, the Shamrock Center also bears the signature of Celtic patriach Red Auerbach, much like the TD Garden in Boston. Martinez also clarifies that playing in the newly-opened facility is for free, but playing there will need a prior reservation. The newly-opened Shamrock Center will ajoin the nearby Oksana Basketball Court, which bears a huge painting of Celtic guard Irving on the court.   .....»»
