New environmentalists: Myanmar to Scotland - Film Critics
Tomatometer ratings - on the basis of the views expressed by literally a hundred cinema and TV reviewers - are a reliable measure of the TV and cinema program experience for tens of thousands of moviegoers. This is the proportion of criticisms by professionals that are good for a particular series. Tomatometer's 60% or higher.
Tomatometer is 59% or lower. Films and television programmes are certified with a constant Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a certain number of responses (80 for widescreen films, 40 for films with restricted publication, 20 for television programmes), among them 5 responses from Top Critics. Proportion of viewers who give a film or TV show a positive rating.
Sugar Mountain has been declared for the violence in Myanmar. Here's his excuse.
Mr President, last weeks after an open message from a Myanmar-based frustration activist sent to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, they received something unexpected: an answer. Concerning the message, the campaigners who represented six civic organisations sharply criticised Mr. Zuckerberg, saying that he misunderstood Facebook's reaction to violence-glorifying embassies in Myanmar and did not devote enough resource to the enforcement of his hatred speeches in the violent state.
Mr. Zuckerberg returned a letter to the group the next morning from his private e-mail and apologized for the misconduct and outlined the action Facebook was taking to intensify its facilitation work. Mr. Zuckerberg's e-mail provided to the New York Times by the New York Times activists groups was the Chairman's first ever face-to-face communications with the community groups that criticised Facebook's part in the country's mounting human rights war.
The United Nations detectives and HRGs have charged Facebook with enabling Rohingya Muslims, an ethnical majority, to be violated by spreading anti-Muslim hatred speeches and misleading messages on their platforms. In Myanmar, Facebook is a predominant information resource, and civic groups have blamed it as some kind of absent lessor, with few presenters and schemes that discourage the use of Facebook postings to encourage abuse by activists.
Mr. Zuckerberg said in his e-mail that Facebook had added "dozens" of Burmese-speaking verifiers to watch hatred speeches and "increased the number of individuals across the organization on Myanmar-related issues", which included a production force working on developing ways to try to contain the abuse there.
Opinions are focused on a mail sent in September to Facebook Messenger in Myanmar. Civic groups say the embassies have paralysed the big Myanmar towns and aroused fear of a violence. This kind of instigation and scare tactics have become far too common on Facebook, according to the groups that say Facebook has consistently missed the pledges to use more on them.
Last weeks when interviewed, Mr. Zuckerberg seemed to stop the September show as a showcase for Facebook's efficiency, saying the company's system had recognized and halted the news. Indeed, the campaigners said they kept marking the news on Facebook by denigrating their staff with strong calls until the firm eventually jumped in to help.
Mr. Zuckerberg's in-person e-mail has not suppressed the activists' frustrations. Groups say the greatest obstacle to their efforts to defend themselves against a stream of harmful hatred is not their shortage of ressources, but Facebook itself. You said that Facebook has promised in the past to do more to suppress Myanmar's racial violent but has not kept its promise.
"It' s great that he's working on it in person, but what he's speaking about is really not that different from what they've said in recent years," said Jes Petersen, CEO of Phandeeyar, an innovative laboratory in Myanmar that has worked with Facebook to create localised copies of its fellowship standard.
Debbie Frost, a Facebook spokesperson, acknowledged the genuineness of Mr. Zuckerberg's e-mail and said that Facebook plans to keep busy with the activation. For years after civic groups first started hatred speeches in Myanmar, the firm still has no fixed offices or personnel in the nation and appears to be fighting to give its platforms adequate control.
Facebook has recruited about 1,200 presenters in Germany, where Hasstiraden legislation requires the attentiveness of media viewers. To reach the same user /moderator relationship in Myanmar, Facebook would need to have about 800 evaluators in the state, Mr Petersen commented. "He said it won't be stopped by a dozen critics of its contents.
Civic groups have already reacted to Mr. Zuckerberg's response by asking for harsh information about Facebook's work in the area, such as how many Burmese-speaking critics the organization has, how many stories it has received in Myanmar, and how long it usually take for Facebook to react to incidents of hatred-speak.
"Much of what they have done is cosmetically - it is not the palpable enhancement we are looking for," said Victoire Rio, a Myanmar based public relations expert mentioned in Mr. Zuckerberg's response. Indonesia has asked Facebook leaders to be accountable for the dissemination of misinformation. The Sri Lankan authorities ordered Facebook to be blockaded last months in order to curb mafia force against Islam.
Adam Mosseri, Facebook's news feed header, said last months in an interviewee that he and other Facebook leaders "lose some sleep" because of the chance that Facebook has resulted in physical force in the physical universe. This is the full text of Mr Zuckerberg's e-mail to the groups of citizens, followed by the groups' response:
I apologise for not being clear enough about the important part your organisations are playing in assisting us in understanding Myanmar and responding to problems, as you mentioned in September. As well as enhancing our technologies and utilities, we have added tens of other Myanmar examiners to process user reviews from all our departments.
We' ve also expanded the number of employees across the entire Myanmar operation and we now have a dedicated Myanmar based products and services staff working to better understanding the unique needs of the area and developing the right skills to keep communities intact. and we will work with you to find more ways to respond to these important questions.
Answer of the civic groups. Among the respondents are Phandeeyar, one of the country's premier centers of innovation, the Myanmar ICT for Development Organization, which oversees on-line hatred speeches, and the Center for Social Integrity. Thank you for replying to our mail from your own e-mail address.
We' re also happy to hear you repeat the action Facebook has taken and plans to take to enhance your Myanmar experience. It does not alter our basic conviction that your suggestions for improvement are far from sufficient to make sure that Myanmar residents receive the same level of diligence as the United States or Europe.
If something goes awry in Myanmar, the results can be very serious - possibly catastrophic. As with many previous conversations we had with your compliance staff, your e-mail is focused on submissions. How many Myanmar-speaking critics did you have in all until March 2018? We' re particularly interested in critics working on the Facebook site looking for full-time equivalent.
What is the mechanism for preventing recidivists in Myanmar? What have you done so far to resolve the double entry problem we mentioned in the December 2017 brief we gave your group? Our December brief is included as a link, as it explains in more detail the issues we have tried to tackle with Facebook with the headline:
