Security Council seeks boost in UN mission to monitor situation in DR

While commending the Congolese parties on an agreement reached earlier this month to establish a transitional government, the Council reiterated that all groups claiming a role in the future of the DRC must demonstrate their respect for human rights and international humanitarian law, as well as the security and well being of civilians.In unanimously adopting a new resolution today, the Council stressed that there would be no impunity for human rights abuses carried out in the DRC, and condemned the continuing massacres and other systematic violations of international humanitarian law in the country, particularly sexual violence against women and girls as tools of warfare and the recent atrocities and unrelenting violence perpetrated at the hands of rebel groups and armed militias operating in the Ituri area.The Council asked the Secretary-General to boost the number of personnel in the human rights component of the UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) to assist and enhance the capacity of the Congolese parties to investigate all serious violations of international humanitarian law perpetrated in the country since the conflict began in August 1998. The resolution also renews the Council’s earlier demand that all parties to the conflict immediately provide information on steps they have taken towards protecting children and ending recruitment of child soldiers.Expressing deep concern over the heavy fighting in the town of Bunia, the Council demanded that all parties to the conflict in the Ituri region cease hostilities immediately and sign an unconditional ceasefire. The Council stressed that the parties must cooperate with MONUC to set up the Ituri Pacification Commission immediately, as the necessary steps must be urgently taken to restore public order in Bunia.In this connection, the 15-nation body requested the Secretary-General to increase MONUC’s presence in the Ituri area– in particular military observers and human rights personnel – as security conditions permit, to monitor developments on the ground, including the use of airfields in the area.The Council also demanded that all governments in the Great Lakes region immediately cease military and financial support to all the parties engaged in armed conflict in the Ituri region, and reiterated that all foreign troops must be withdrawn from Congolese territory. In that connection, it called on Uganda to complete the withdrawal of all its troops without further delay, and expressed concern that Kampala’s commitment to withdraw by 20 March had not been met. read more

Toshiba announces worlds fastest SD card capable of 240 Mbps writes

first_imgThe most commonly cited spec when it comes to SD cards is the total storage space, but there is also a wide variance in the access speed of different cards. Toshiba has just announced a new version of its Exceria SD cards with record fast write speeds of 240 Mbps, which is more than twice as fast as many other high-end cards.Toshiba will be offering the new Exceria Pro memory cards in 16 and 32GB sizes, but a 64GB option is believed to be on the way as well. 240 Mbps is likely the burst speed of the Exceria cards. The sustained speed was not given, but it’s likely to still be impressive when compared to other products currently for sale.The cards conform to the UHS-II interface in SD Memory Card Standard Version 4.10. This allows for a maximum write speed of 312 Mbps, so there’s still some room for improvement without designing entirely new standards. UHS-I topped out at 90 Mbps. In addition to the super-fast writes, the cards will also be capable of read speeds up to 260 Mbps.For most folks, slower cards are probably fine. These new super-fast ones may be of interest to professionals that shoot large numbers of high-resolution burst shots. The improved throughput of UHS-II could be of use in that scenario. HD video recording only needs a few megabits per second of bandwidth to work, but maybe higher-resolution video could benefit. Of course, the capacity of these cards wouldn’t allow for much recording time.Toshiba didn’t say how much these new cards would cost, but unconfirmed reports list the 32GB card selling for about $150. They are expected to be available in October.last_img read more

Downer cautious on Cyprus

first_imgUN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer reiterated last week that he is cautiously optimistic the negotiation process aiming to a Cyprus solution can succeed, as talks enter the second phase of the process, on September 3, 2009.In statements after meeting Cyprus President Demetris Christofias at the Presidential Palace, Downer said “we are coming to the end of what it is sometimes called the first reading of the chapters of the negotiations”.“It depends above all on the leaders, the good will and support of the leaders and the people. If the leaders and the people want a solution then anything can be achieved, if people don’t want a solution it won’t happen,” Downer said.Asked when the talks will enter the second reading, Downer said that the second phase will begin “almost certainly” on September 3.Replying to question on the tender on Limnitis road, Downer said that the UN is working on the issue and holds talks with the two sides about how the tender will work, adding none of that is being concluded yet.

Greek suburbs booming despite slowing market

first_imgGreek Australian populated areas in Melbourne are seeing major increases in property prices, with many Greek home-owners sitting on housing worth 20 per cent more than it was a year ago. “The Greeks like to hold onto property, they’re not the ones to buy and sell a lot” – Chris SavvidesThree Greek populated areas have been named in top 10 performing suburbs in Melbourne year to year, including Doncaster, Ivanhoe and Oakleigh East. Doncaster was the fifth most improved, with a 24.2 per cent rise in year-to-year growth and a median house price of $988,000. More than 1,800 Greek speakers live in the suburb of Doncaster.Ivanhoe was the sixth most improved, with a 23.9 per cent rise in year-to-year growth but a higher median house price at $1,030,000. Oakleigh East came in tenth, with a 20 per cent rise and a median house price of $785,000.The most sought after suburb in Melbourne was Prahran, with a 33.8 per cent year-to-year growth and a $1,167,500 median house price. These suburbs have defied a weakening housing market in Melbourne, which saw overall house prices grow to just 0.6 per cent over the December period, down from the 1 per cent growth that was recorded in the previous quarter.For suburbs experiencing a boom, many Greeks aren’t getting the itch to sell for an astronomical price.Doncaster real estate agent for Jellis Craig, Chris Savvides, says even during big price peaks, Greek Australians aren’t getting the urge to sell. “The Greeks like to hold onto property, they’re not the ones to buy and sell a lot,” he tells Neos Kosmos. “They spend their lifetime in their home, it’s their castle.”He does get a few Greek clients wanting to downsize as they age, but for Mr Savvides, the Greeks aren’t as big property players as they were 30 years ago. “The Greeks are not as prominent buyers as they were years ago,” he says. “Of late, what’s driving up our market is the influence of people coming from (generally speaking) China,” he says. International investment in Doncaster has been a huge contributor to the suburb increasing its median house price, with many buying into the suburb long-term to make use of the good schools and open spaces. The market is looking like it is going to shift to a buyers market as house prices overall begin to slow and interest rates slide. This week the Reserve Bank of Australia decided to drop the interests rate to a record 2.25 per cent low, giving mortgage holders some relief and giving first-home-buyers more incentive to enter the market.

Rode expects BVB to have a new coach

first_imgBorussia Dortmund’s season hasn’t been an easy one as they failed to succeed in both Champions League and Europa League and they have to gain at least a point against Hoffenheim to secure the Champions League for the next season.Sebastian Rode insisted that Borussia Dortmund are likely to enter the next season with a new coach as especially Lucien Favre has been heavily linked with this position and Peter Stoger is about to leave the club after this season.The former Bayern Munich player spoke about the coaching and his own situation as he said, according to Sports Keeda:borussia dortmund, marco reus, jadon sancho, paco alcacerReport: Dortmund hammer four past Leverkusen George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund put four past Bayer Leverkusen.Borussia Dortmund leapfrogged Bayern Munich to claim second place in the Bundesliga.

Why Was Source Interlinks CEO Ousted

first_imgClearly, this doesn’t shed any light on the circumstances surrounding Duckworth’s departure. One M&A player I spoke with speculated that his ouster probably was related to the company’s poor financial performance.“A quick look at their stock price, leverage and financial performance is a pretty good indicator of why the CEO was toasted,” the source said. “They over paid by $100 million to $200 million for the Primedia properties, have not achieved the expected synergies with a distributor and are struggling with the magazines in the current market.”In August 2007 when Source acquired Primedia Enthusiast Media in a stock purchase of approximately $1.2 billion, its stock was trading upwards of $4 per share. By November, prices fell to $2.01 per share. (A year earlier, in August 2006, stock was trading well above $10 per share.)The day Source Interlink named Mays CEO (October 23), the company’s stock price fell to a 52-week low of $0.335 per share. Through morning trading Tuesday, Source’s stock price was $0.4177.“The stock was cut in its first six months of trading as a merged company. In the ensuing year, with the merger going poorly and the dreams of synergies never taking form, the stock has lost another 80 percent of its value,” another source said, indicating the company holds roughly $1.1 billion in debt. “That’s roughly a 90 percent devaluation since the merger.”In September, the company reported a net loss of $296.7 million for the six month period ending July 31, compared to a $4 million net income for the same period last year. Net revenue for the period was $1.1 billion, up from $909 million during the period last year. Late last month when distributor and enthusiast magazine publisher Source Interlink named Greg Mays chairman and CEO, the first question I had for the company was what happened to former chief executive Michael Duckworth [pictured].After several requests for comment, this is what the company’s vice president of investor relations sent over e-mail:Mr. May’s experience with the company, and his understanding of the channels it operates in, will add value to the management team as it seeks to gain greater efficiencies and uncover new opportunities. The company expects to deliver unparalleled value to its readers, retail partners, employees and investors.last_img read more

Alaska heat wave hits YukonKuskokwim Delta

first_imgBack in Chevak, Paniyak has dug out her fan and opened her windows to beat the heat. A friend from Colorado called as Alaska’s heatwave made national news. “So from one to three this morning, I smoked my fish,” Paniyak said. Bethel’s airport thermometer stopped working last week, so it’s unclear if temperatures climbed higher than 90 degrees, which would have broken the record set in Bethel back in 1920. Rick Thoman is a climatologist. He is keeping tabs on the temperature spike in the Y-K Delta. People living in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta felt something unusual this past holiday weekend: a heat wave. Temperatures crept close to 90 degrees in many parts of the region, including Bethel, but a malfunctioning thermometer and not enough data could prevent this summer from making it into the record books.  The weather forecast says that the heat wave is probably going to stay in Western Alaska for two more days. “My thermometer outside my house last night read close to 100, 90-something, but it’s when the sun is directly on the house,” Paniyak said. “She called earlier and asked about AC, [I said] ‘we live in Alaska, we don’t have AC like you,’” Paniyak said.  Cynthia Paniyak lives in Chevak. She says that this is the hottest summer she can remember. Coastal villages like Quinhagak and Chevak did notch high temperatures, but Thoman says that there’s not enough data to see if the heat wave broke records there. Some of those communities have only been recording data since 2013. (Photo by Katie Basile, KYUK) It’s the middle of fishing season, but Paniyak is finding that the heat is making it hard to work. “Some of the temperatures that we saw were at or near records,” Thoman said.last_img read more

Happiness classes for medical students in Lucknow

first_imgLucknow: A private medical college in Lucknow has opened a department of happiness to boost a sense of well-being among students and teachers. The Era Medical College on Hardoi Road is the first higher education institution in the state to boast of having a department of happiness. The pilot project was launched last week to promote stress management in the medical profession and allow doctors and paramedics “to attend to patients with a smile”. Also Read – Shah urges women to shun plastic bags Advertise With Us The month-long happiness classes are currently being attended by 290 students from the medical (150), nursing (80) and pharmacy (60) departments. These will later be extended to other departments of Era University, which manages the medical college. These special classes, held three days a week, have brought together experts from various medical disciplines, including medicine, clinical psychology and psychiatry, under one roof with spiritual leaders and motivational speakers. Also Read – Free bus travel for women gets Cabinet nod Advertise With Us The neuroscience behind happiness, perception, general well-being, positive and negative approaches, frustration and tolerance, sympathy, apathy and altruism, and body language and communication are among the wide variety of topics being covered through videos, storytelling, experience-sharing and real-time experimenting. According to Vice Chancellor Abbas Ali Mahdi, “At the moment, it is just a pilot programme. Grades will depend on how a scientific questionnaire, prepared to assess factors associated with happiness, is answered. A psychologist will rate students after a month and issue certificates. We plan to start a certificate and diploma course in the near future, besides extending the classes to students beyond the medical college.” Head of the happiness department, Professor Meeta Ghosh, said: “Our aim is to strike off negativity, stress, sorrows and sufferings at the institution so that these future doctors and paramedics can pass on their positivity to patients.”last_img read more

Netflix Eats Up 15 of All Internet Downstream Traffic Worldwide Study

first_imgNetflix’s dominant share of internet bandwidth usage is even more impressive considering that its video encoding is more efficient than any other major internet video provider, according to Sandvine. In other words, Netflix would represent an even larger portion of internet-data consumption if its compression algorithms were less efficient.Worldwide, video is 57.7% of the total volume of downstream traffic on the internet, followed by web (17.0%), gaming (7.8%) and social media (5.1%). Other categories include content marketplaces like iTunes and Google Play (4.6%), file sharing (2.8%), and audio streaming (1.0%), according to the Sandvine report.Looking at video as a category, Netflix represents of 26.6% downstream video traffic worldwide. Regionally, Netflix gobbles up 30.7% in the Americas. In EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), YouTube takes top share of downstream video traffic (30.4%) followed by Netflix (23.1%), while in the Asia-Pacific region web-based video streaming is No. 1 (29.2%) followed by Facebook video (17.7%).The data Sandvine uses to compile its Global Internet Phenomena Report comes from more than 150 service-provider customers globally, representing 2.1 billion subscribers. The Canadian company, based in Waterloo, Ontario, noted that the report doesn’t include significant data from China or India.Global Video Streaming Traffic Share Amazon Prime Video5.7% Twitch3.5% Netflix26.6% Facebook video3.4% Raw MPEG transport stream8.0% YouTube21.3% Hulu0.4% Sky Go0.5% Netflix remains the 800-pound gorilla of the streaming world: Video from the service consumes a significant 15% of all internet bandwidth globally, the most of any single application.That’s according to the latest Global Internet Phenomena Report from Sandvine, a vendor of bandwidth-management systems. Netflix was followed by HTTP media streams, representing 13.1% of all downstream traffic; YouTube (11.4%); web browsing (7.8%); and MPEG transport streams (4.4%).In the Americas, Netflix grabs an even bigger slice of the bandwidth pie, accounting for 19.1% of total downstream traffic. Here’s an interesting wrinkle: In this Americas, Amazon Prime Video consumes more data (7.7% of downstream traffic) than YouTube (7.5%), per Sandvine.During peak evening hours, Netflix usage can spike as high as 40% of all downstream traffic on some wireline operator networks in the Americas, per the study, which remains consistent with past studies Sandvine has conducted.

Game of Thrones Nabs No 1 Spot as MostSocial TV Show in

first_imgThe looming battle for Westeros led “Game of Thrones” to dominate social buzz in the first quarter of 2019 — even before HBO debuted the eighth and final season to record ratings last month.More surprising than “GOT” capturing the social crown, though, has Netflix’s impressive overall social engagement growth, according to data from research firm ListenFirst Media.In Q1, after “Game of Thrones” the No. 2 TV show on ListenFirst’s social-interest ranking was Netflix’s comic-book adaptation “The Umbrella Academy,” followed by “You,” the psychological drama Netflix picked up for season 2 after debuting on Lifetime. Netflix’s awkward British comedy “Sex Education” was in the sixth spot, after Freeform’s “Shadowhunters” and The CW’s “Riverdale.”Overall, streaming services have outpaced traditional TV networks in social engagement: Social engagement for streaming shows jumped 200% from Q1 2017 to Q1 2019, while broadcast and premium cable programs grew by 55% and 69%, respectively, during the same period, per ListenFirst.

A new VideotoVideo Synthesis model uses Artificial Intelligence to create photorealistic videos

first_imgA paper titled “Video-to-Video Synthesis”, introduces a new model using the generative adversarial learning framework. This model is capable of performing video to video synthesis to achieve high-resolution, photorealistic, and temporally coherent video results on a diverse set of inputs. These inputs include segmentation masks, sketches, and poses. Video-to-video synthesis What problem is the paper trying to solve? The paper focuses on a mapping function which can effectively convert an input video to an output video. Although image-to-image translation methods are quite popular, a general-purpose solution for video-to-video synthesis has not yet been explored. The paper considers the video-to-video synthesis problem as a distribution matching problem. This involves training a model in such a way that conditional distribution of the synthesized videos makes sure that the input videos resembles that of real videos. Given a set of aligned input and output videos, the model maps the input videos to the output domain at the test time. This approach is also capable of generating photorealistic 2K resolution videos which can be up to 30 seconds long. How does the model work? The network is trained in a spatio-temporally progressive manner. “We start with generating low-resolution and few frames, and all the way up to generating full resolution and 30 (or more) frames. Our coarse-to-fine generator consists of three scales, which operates on 512 × 256, 1024 × 512, and 2048 × 1024 resolutions, respectively” reads the paper. The model is trained for 40 epochs and uses the ADAM [36] optimizer with lr = 0.0002 and (β1, β2) = (0.5, 0.999) on an NVIDIA DGX1 machine. All the GPUs in DGX1 (8 V100 GPUs, each with 16GB memory) are used for training purposes. A generator computation task is distributed to 4 GPUs and the discriminator computation task is distributed to the other 4 GPUs. Training the model takes somewhere around 10 days for 2K resolution. There are several datasets which are used for training the model such as Cityscapes, Apollo Scape, Face video dataset, FaceForensics dataset, and Dance video dataset. Apart from this, the researchers compared the approach to two baselines trained on the same data, namely, pix2pixHD ( the state-of-the-art image-to-image translation approach) and COVST. For evaluating the model’s performance, both subjective and objective metrics are used. First is the Human preference score that performs a human subjective test for evaluation of the visual quality of synthesized videos. Second is the Fréchet Inception Distance (FID), a widely used metric for implicit generative models. Limitations of the model This model fails in situations when synthesizing turning cars because of insufficient information in label maps. This can be addressed by adding 3D cues, such as depth maps. Also, the model doesn’t guarantee that an object will have a consistent appearance across the whole video. This means that there can be instances where a car may change its color gradually. Lastly, by performing semantic manipulations such as turning trees into buildings, visible artifacts may appear i.e. building and trees can have different label shapes. However, this can be resolved by using coarser semantic labels to train the model since that would make it less sensitive to label shapes. “Extensive experiments demonstrate that our results are significantly better than the results by state-of-the-art methods. Its extension to the future video prediction task also compares favorably against the competing approaches” reads the paper. The paper has received public criticism from a few over the concern that it can be used to create deepfakes or tampered videos which can deceive people for illegal and exploitation purposes. While others view it as a great step into the AI-driven future. For more information, be sure to check out the official research paper.

operations to track armed gangs will be sustained in various locations The Nigerian Army has declared three persons working for the UNICEF persona non-grata in the North East Nigeria The three persons are: Priscillia Hoveyda Maher Farea and Milen Kidane This follows various allegations against the Nigerian military which the Theatre Commander of LAFIYA DOLE Major General Rogers Nicholas described as unfounded It was alleged recently that the Nigerian military has raped over 20 girls in IDP camps in Borno State General Nicholas said this is an allegation by enemies of the military and the Nigerian State In a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday the Theatre Commander said It was curious that these allegations were coming at a time the military is at the verge of defeating the menace of Boko Haram Terrorists and bring their criminal activities to a final end “The attention of the Theatre Commander has been drawn to spurious and malicious allegations of human rights violation in Operation LAFIYA DOLE “The allegation falsely claimed that the Nigerian military is using children below the age of 18 years in the North East to fight Boko Haram It also said that some boys being detained in Giwa Barracks are being use to cook as messengers and porters ” This is unfortunate that these allegations are not only untrue but also obviously targeted to malign Nigeria and tarnish the good image of our gallant military that has launched a renewed campaign to bring to an end the menace of terrorism in the country “The persons who made the allegations have seen that the recent results achieved by the Military in decimating the Boko Haram Terrorists is yielding positive result “They are not happy that Nigeria is at the verge of being totally liberated from the scourge of terrorism/insurgency in a very short while” General Nicholas said The theatre commander also noted that it is on record that the Military does not employ any under age person to fight on its behalf or support it in whatever guise “The Nigerian Military is a thoroughbred professional organization and upholds the fundamental rights of every citizen including children “The Military will not condescend so low to resort to the use of under age to fight for it We are an organization that is guided by international best practices in all our undertakings and no amount of blackmail will distract us from our resolve to achieve our mandate of defeating the menace of Boko Haram in the country” He said On the allegation of rape by the military the theatre commander said it is on record that no military personnel works or is deployed inside the IDP Camp within the Theatre of Operations “The management and operations of such camps is solely the responsibility of the various NGOs working at such facilities and the para-military organizations that provide security at such camps “In a few areas the military is deployed on the outer perimeter to provide added security to enable workers at the camps to go about their duties without let or hindrance “The military personnel deployed in such areas are under strict instructions not to interfere with activities at such camps but are only there to ensure no harm is brought to workers IDPs or any person authorized to work in the camp “It is therefore sad and unfortunate that somebody will sit down somewhere and concoct such false baseless unfounded and spurious allegation “It is certain that the persons making such allegations are deliberate in their attempts to rubbish the successes achieved so far by the gallant military and will not succeed *In recent times the activities of the Boko Haram Terrorists have been nipped in the bud and their capacity for coordinated operations has been adequately curtailed “The end of terrorism and insurgency in Nigeria is at the twilight end and enemies of Nigeria and the military are obviously unhappy at the successes and the efforts so far made by the military in the discharge of their responsibilities in the most professional and patriotic manner “We urge the general public to disregard such malicious allegations and continue to support the military to completely rid the country of any act terrorism/insurgency “We assure all well meaning Nigerians that their security safety and dignity are paramount in our collective effort to bring to a conclusive end the ménace of Boko Haram “The military has and will remain professional in the discharge of its mandate and will not be distracted by enemies of the country and its military” General Nicholas said When Cole Porter was born 125 years agoon June 9 1891it was with a silver spoon in his mouth But that didn’t mean the famed American composer and lyricist didn’t work hard for his success too That balance between the drive to work and the lack of a need to work was largely the subject the 1949 cover story that TIME devoted to Porter as his latest show Kiss Me Kate made a splash on Broadway As the magazine put it the two sides of Porter’s life were “show business and the high-living high-gloss international society that lionized him long before his songs caught the public’s ear” That second sidethat he was “born to wealth and bred to spend it”proposed a problem for some publicists who worked with him One person assigned by Warner Bros to create a film biography of Porter told TIME that the idea flopped because there was no conflict in Porter’s story at least nothing that they could turn into a feel-good narrative His childhood as a coal and lumber heir his years at the best schools

Writing by Robert Birsel; Editing by Clarence Fernandez) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed A best-seller by former New York Times science writer Nicholas Wade about recent human evolution and its potential effects on human cultures has drawn critical reviews since its spring publication Now nearly 140 senior human population geneticists around the world many of whose work was cited in the book have signed a letter to The New York Times Book Review stating that Wade has misinterpreted their work The letter criticizes “Wade’s misappropriation of research from our field to support arguments about differences among human societies” and is slated to appear in the 10 August issue of the Book Review It’s available online today The book A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes Race and Human History contends that human races are a biological reality and that recent human evolution has led to racial differences in economic and social behavior In the book Wade suggests that such genetic differences may help explain why some people live in tribal societies and some in advanced civilizations why African-Americans are allegedly more violent than whites and why the Chinese may be good at business The book has received some blistering reviews from both scientists and science writers including one by David Dobbs in The New York Times Book Review and some scientists weighed in with blogs as well Now geneticists have crafted a joint response concluding that “there is no support from the field of population genetics for Wade’s conjectures” The list of signatories reads like a who’s who of researchers in the field and includes such well-known geneticists as Evan Eichler of the University of Washington Seattle; David Goldstein of Duke University; and Michael Hammer of the University of Arizona The letter was spearheaded by five population geneticists who had informally discussed the book at conferences says co-organizer Rasmus Nielsen of the University of California Berkeley “There was a feeling that our research had been hijacked by Wade to promote his ideological agenda” Nielsen says “The outrage … was palpable” Molly Przeworski of Columbia University another organizer says the group “tried to contact population geneticists whose work had been cited by Wade” They had no trouble getting signatures racking up 100 within the first week she says The letter organizers and the editors of the Book Review kept the letter under embargo until its publication today and declined to make it available to Wade for an immediate response But in previous ripostes to the book’s critics most notably in a 19 June Huffington Post article titled “Five Critics Say You Shouldn’t Read This ‘Dangerous’ Book” Wade charged that his critics were “indoctrinated in the social-science creed that prohibits any role for evolution in human affairs” and contended that the book’s central argument “has not been challenged by any serious scientist” Letter organizers say they hope to demonstrate that the opposite is true For example Sarah Tishkoff of the University of Pennsylvania says she signed the letter because “[m]y own research was used as scientific proof of concepts such as there being between three and five races” Tishkoff says that her work on the genetics of diverse African populations does not support this claim Adds David Reich of Harvard University: “Our findings do not even provide a hint of support in favor of Wade’s guesswork” *Update 9 August 6:05 am: Nicholas Wade has issued a statement in response to the letter He writes: This letter is driven by politics not science I am confident that most of the signatories have not read my book and are responding to a slanted summary devised by the organizers As no reader of the letter could possibly guess “A Troublesome Inheritance” argues that opposition to racism should be based on principle not on the anti-evolutionary myth that there is no biological basis to race Unfortunately many social scientists have long denied that there is a biological basis to race This creed prominent throughout the academic world increasingly impedes research? unom.
