5 Questions Congress Should Ask Google’s Sundar Pichai

Before they hand control of the House of Representatives over to Democrats, House Republicans are mounting one more effort to hold Silicon Valley giants accountable for what they say is rampant liberal bias at tech companies. In the hot seat this time: Google CEO Sundar Pichai.On Tuesday, Pichai will testify before the House Judiciary Committee in a hearing focused on transparency, data collection, and filtering. Until now, Pichai has mostly avoided the public lashings in Washington that his contemporaries, like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, have received. In September, Google declined to send either Pichai or Larry Page, CEO of Google’s parent company Alphabet, to testify alongside Dorsey and Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg before the Senate

This doesn't necessarily address the problem that users tend to wave away warnings and notifications if they're stopping them from using the platform, but it's possible this requirement would simplify notifications so you could see at a glance if the kind of data collection proposed is in line with the benefit you get in return.Secondly, users would get further controls over the collection of their data. When you first use an app or sign up for a service, all the options that allow your data to be collected would be set to "off", and it would be up to you to turn on the ones you want. These settings would need to explain the consequences of giving consent, and be "current and specific".LoadingThe preliminary recommendations also include measures to address tech giants' market power, inc...

The Best HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE EATING IS ON THE RISE Health food is seeing a meteoric rise in China. More juice bars, health food joints and salad bars crowd street corners and delivery apps in the country’s most developed cities than ever before.

A Complete Guide to Branded Content Strategy

The term branded content marketing is somewhat controversial. Its detractors believe it blurs the line between advertising and content marketing, diminishing the image of the content marketing industry as a result.So, why the controversy? Well, more than a handful of big brands have simply taken their logo and integrated it or with something for the sake of doing so, without giving any real consideration to the development of a natural and meaningful partnership or the creation of a wider narrative. This is often seen with sponsorship deals, especially in sport.So-called ‘logo slapping’ is an ineffective form of branded content because it doesn’t mean anything. Without a brand image and personality behind the logo, brand marketing is effectively reduced to crude advertising.Locating an

The Friendship That Made Google Huge

One day in March of 2000, six of Google’s best engineers gathered in a makeshift war room. The company was in the midst of an unprecedented emergency. In October, its core systems, which crawled the Web to build an “index” of it, had stopped working. Although users could still type in queries at google.com, the results they received were five months out of date. More was at stake than the engineers realized. Google’s co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, were negotiating a deal to power a search engine for Yahoo, and they’d promised to deliver an index ten times bigger than the one they had at the time—one capable of keeping up with the World Wide Web, which had doubled in size the previous year. If they failed, google.com would remain a time capsule, the Yahoo deal would likely coll

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the online visibility of a website or a web page in a web search engine’s unpaid results often referred to as “natural”, “organic”, or “earned” results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a website appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users; these visitors can then be converted into customers. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, video search, academic search, news search, and industry-specific vertical search engines. SEO differs from local search engine optimization in that the latter is focused on optimizing a business’ online presence so that its w

Find out which movies are worth the popcorn money this week. The Old Man and the Gun **** If this really is the end, Robert Redford has truly gone out with a bang. Having starred in one of the greatest stick-up movies of all time, it was always going to take something special for the 82-year-old to go on the lam again.  Sure enough, this wry character study about ageing, seventy-second chances and the thrill of the chase (in more ways than one) has given him the role he has essentially waited a lifetime to play, that of real-life bank robber Forrest Tucker. Read our full review here. Mortal Engines ** Written by Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens, this ambitious sci-fi fantasy about a post-apocalyptic future where predatory cities roam the planet runs out of road very quickly  "We shou

We have obtained a photo allegedly showing a J-20 fighter in Georgia. File this under, “Too Weird to Believe, Too Bizarre Not to Report”. Late Wednesday, December 5, 2018 a photo arrived in our messenger box alleged to be of a Chinese J-20 Mighty Dragon stealth fighter. There are plenty of photos of the unusual Chinese J-20 Mighty Dragon. This photo was different. This photo was (claimed to be) taken at an airport in Georgia. In the United States. On Wednesday Dec. 5 in the morning. We spent two days messaging the source of the image, who asked to remain anonymous. We also interviewed subject matter experts about the photo. The photo was claimed to have been taken from a public parking area. We looked at the details of the photo including the material used on the building rooftop
