US tells UK using Huawei 5G gear would be ‘madness,’ report says

The United States reportedly presented Britain with new evidence showing that the use of Huawei equipment in its 5G networks would put intelligence sharing at risk.

Allowing Huawei access to the U.K.’s rollout of fifth-generation mobile internet would be “nothing short of madness,” U.S. officials told their U.K. counterparts, according to a report from The Guardian newspaper. A U.S. delegation visited the country on Monday to try to convince it not to use Huawei gear.

Washington’s concerns over risks to intelligence sharing appear to contradict a claim just a day earlier from MI5 chief Andrew Parker, who said there was “no reason” to assume a longstanding intelligence sharing agreement between the two countries would be affected by Huawei’s involvement in the U.K.’s 5G rollout.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, when asked by the BBC about the news Tuesday, said critics of Huawei should “tell us what’s the alternative,” adding that he didn’t want any 5G infrastructure implemented that would “prejudice our national security or ability to cooperate” with intelligence partners. London is expected to make a decision on whether to include Huawei in its 5G rollout later this month.

President Donald Trump’s administration has placed Huawei under an intense pressure campaign that has seen the Chinese tech giant added to a trade blacklist and its CFO, Meng Wanzhou, detained in Canada for extradition to the U.S. on charges of bank and wire fraud. The U.S. contends that gear provided by the world’s top telecom equipment maker contains so-called “back doors” that could be used by China for spying.

Huawei, which has rapidly grown into a major player in the mobile space in the last few years, denies it would ever hand network data to Beijing. The company’s 5G gear is seen by top telecommunications firms as being cheaper and more advanced than other alternatives in the market.

Tools available within Therap’s mobile app allow Program Managers and Quality Assurance Directors to view data recorded at the point-of-service, from wherever in the field they happen to be located. This connects members of the team to the data collection, improving quality of service.  App users have secure photo features within Therap, date and time-stamping each entry.

YouTube adds liaison to help it communicate with creators

YouTube has hired a liaison to act as an in-between for the people who make content for the platform.

Matt Kovalakides has been promoted as the company’s new “head creator liaison” role at the company. Kovalakides first joined the company in 2012 as a content strategist after he was a YouTube creator himself. A former filmmaker, he created short, scripted comedies under his YouTube name “Matt Koval,” which garnered more than 100,000 subscribers.

In the new role, Kovalakikes will advocate for creators internally while defending the company to creators by explaining the platforms “complexities” and “scale,” according to YouTube. He’ll engage publicly through social media, blog posts, videos and in-person at creator events, the company said, adding it’s heard creators like to get their information about YouTube from different mediums.

“[The] Goal is to help creators understand YouTube, and vice versa,” Kovalakikes tweeted Monday. “Complicated stuff on both sides.”

The new role comes as Google-owned YouTube has endured several conflicts with creators this year, with some complaining about harassment and hate speech, and others arguing that the platform’s rules about removing advertisements — a process called “demonetization” — are random and poorly explained. Some content creators, who count on ads as their main source of revenue, were enraged in September after some received emails suggesting they would lose their verification status on YouTube.

“Spent years as a @YouTube creator, and then years as a YouTube employee,” Kovalakides tweeted. “There are challenges on both sides that each often don’t understand. My new job is to try and improve that understanding.”

Last year YouTube hired a number of strategic partnership managers to act as liaisons to political publications. YouTube declined to answer questions about Kovalakikes’ reporting structure, only saying that he is a part of YouTube’s editorial team.

The role is similar to Danny Sullivan’s role for Google’s search team. Sullivan was a leading journalist covering the search industry for many years, and joined Google as its Search Liaison in 2017 to help the company handle relationships with outsiders who have questions about how Google ranks search results.

YouTube broke out ad revenue numbers for the first time in its fourth quarter earlier this month. YouTube ads generated $15.15 billion in revenue in fiscal 2019, with $4.72 billion generated in the fourth quarter alone.

Interactive science at East End

Published

By


WILMINGTON — At East End’s recent Science Night, activities gave students opportunities to deepen their learning of science concepts through problem solving, questioning and engagement.

Families were invited to come to East End after school to enjoy a meal and then to rotate through different science stations that were set up in the gym.

The stations were led by high school science students and fifth-grade teachers.

This opportunity was possible because of a grant that East End received from the Wilmington Schools Foundation.
