Pistorius trial: open justice or trial by media?

first_imgWill South Africa’s justice system benefit from the 24-hour coverage given to the Oscar Pistorius trial?. (Image: Media Club South Africa) • A media guide to the Oscar Pistorius trial • The media and open justice • Paralympic heroes back in South Africa • South Africa‘s justice system goes hi-tech • Crime in South Africa Sulaiman PhilipJudge Thokozile Masipa’s courtroom is no different to the others in the North Gauteng high court, with dark wood panelling making it august and almost claustrophobic. Hard wooden benches can, at a pinch, hold 50 people, far too few seats to accommodate the probing hordes of media who’ve descended on the courthouse, and the country, for the trial of Oscar Pistorius, charged with the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.In the scrum of global interest in the case, South African media houses Eyewitness News and Multichoice applied for permission to broadcast the trial live. On Tuesday 25 February Gauteng judge president Dunstan Mlambo ruled that all trial audio, and selected video, could be broadcast on radio, TV and online. A blanket ban on media coverage, he said, would be a case of the bench abandoning the “noble principles of open justice”. “Court proceedings are in fact public, and this objective must be recognised.”Multichoice’s DSTV 24-hour pop-up channel dedicated to the trial will be broadcast for the duration. Along with the live stream from the courtroom, it will air 78 documentaries as well as analysis from a team of 150 experts.George Mazarakis, the new channel’s executive producer, explained. “Clearly we are not going to simply sit there and do salacious reporting. That’s not what we do. Our aim is to inform and educate our viewers. So it’s an opportunity for us to unpack those things in intelligent and a responsible manner, and at the same time to make it compelling television. Which is what we hope we achieve as a matter of course.”Watch: Gauteng judge president Dunstan Mlambo’s ruling on trial coverage‘International precedent’Many South African media commentators have called Mlambo’s decision ground-breaking, bringing the country in line with other democracies. But others have a more nuanced view.Professor Anton Harber, director of the Journalism and Media Studies Programme at Wits University, agrees that Mlambo’s ruling brings South Africa closer to the international trend toward more open justice. More importantly, 20 years into democracy, it reinforces the strength of the country’s institutions.“It shows a maturity and self-confidence that we can open our justice system up like this,” Harber says. “I think it is an excellent sign of the implementation of the principle of transparency embedded in our constitution. And the judge gave a powerful, carefully considered and well-argued judgement that I suspect will stand as an international precedent.”In his ruling, Mlambo said he hoped it would dispel the perception that the South African justice system was easier on the rich than on the poor. But Harber, in his regular Thursday op-ed piece in Business Day newspaper, argued that the media circus around the Pistorius trial may reinforce rather than dispel the notion. “In fact, they will see the very opposite: they will see rich people’s justice. They will see how money allows you to have teams of the most skilled people to trip up the prosecution, and of media people to watch your back. You will see the courts on their best behaviour under the scrutiny of the world. This is not how most South Africans experience the justice system.”Dario Milo, a media and constitutional lawyer, argues that Pistorius’s ability to finance the best defence is a testament to the fairness of the South African system. “Oscar has right to a fair trial and the right in law to brief whomever he wishes to. Legal systems around the world have access-to-justice hurdles for the poor. The question of beefing up state support for poor litigants is one that rests solely with the state.”If local TV channels are anything to go by, South Africans love courtroom dramas. But most of this programming has made them more familiar with the American legal system than their own.Harber has argued the Pistorius trial could play a vital role in educating the masses, by providing an accurate view of what goes on in a South African courtroom. “This trial is entertainment, but if a 24-hour channel dedicated to the legal system is a result, we all win.”Countering the Twitter effect Pistorius’ bail hearing a year ago was the South African equivalent of OJ Simpson’s infamous highway chase two decades ago. In the Pistorius case it was Twitter rather than TV helicopters that made the audience eyewitnesses to proceedings. The immediacy of the journalist’s tweets pre-empted scheduled radio and TV news schedules.Chris Roper, editor in chief of the Mail & Guardian Online, argued recently that the trial has reinforced a perception of South Africa as a tabloid nation. “Traditional media outlets rushed to publication with facts that were at best misinformed and sometimes just plain wrong. Social media reputations were forged by a stream of unverified opinion and journalists became judged on how close they were to real-time events rather than veracity of information, on the speed of publishing rather than caution.”Mlambo expressed reservations about this trend in his ruling. “The so-called trial by media inclinations cannot be in the interest of justice as required in this matter and have the potential to seriously undermine the court proceedings that will soon start.”Harber is also concerned about the impact of Twitter on trial coverage. “Instead of having journalists explain the complicated flow of a court case, there will be instant reaction to everything said: untested allegations, disputed evidence and dodgy witnesses.”Pistorius, his legal and public relations team have embraced social media. This is after hard lessons learned about the power of platforms such as Twitter in shaping perceptions. The news agency that broke the story of the murder in the early hours of Valentine’s Day in 2013 did so on Twitter.Anger over Pretorius’s reported nights out in Pretoria and holidays in Mozambique crystallised on social platforms. The biggest misstep was a perhaps a statement released on his personal website and Twitter to his 302 000 followers, calling the death of Reeva Steenkamp “a tragic accident” – an assertion whose truthfulness only the trial will decide. A new Twitter account @OscarHardTruth is an attempt to balance, and guide, the conversation.Legal ethics and social mediaBut media lawyer Milo believes the role of social media is being overstated. “Judges are trained to consider only the facts presented as evidence. However, a sustained campaign of negative reporting against Pistorius, for example, could undermine the administration of justice.” As lawyers on both sides are bound by legal ethics, he argues, it is unlikely that either side would be party to the media circus around the trial.A study by the University College of London on the effect of media of trials threw up an interesting finding: media coverage swayed juries, but had no influence on judges. Juries are not used in the South African justice system. The Pretorius case will be tried by a high court judge, advised by two assessors.last_img read more

Top Ohio counties for prevented planting in 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In Ohio, there were 1,485,919 prevented planting acres in 2019. Of that more than 880,992 prevented planting acres were corn and over 598,981 acres were soybeans. More than 5,883 Ohio wheat acres were included on the list as well with the balance being made up of oats and sorghum, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency.The top Ohio counties in prevented planting acres for 2019 were: Wood (120,480), Hardin (91,389), Defiance (84,198), Seneca (74,635), Hancock (74,169), Henry (71,083), Fulton (70,514), Paulding (62,567), Williams (60,373), and Wyandot (53,860).Nationally agricultural producers reported they were not able to plant crops on more than 19.4 million acres in 2019, according to a new report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This marks the most prevented plant acres reported since USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) began releasing the report in 2007 and 17.49 million acres more than reported at this time last year.Of those prevented plant acres, more than 73% were in 12 Midwestern states, where heavy rainfall and flooding this year has prevented many producers from planting mostly corn, soybeans and wheat.“Agricultural producers across the country are facing significant challenges and tough decisions on their farms and ranches,” said Bill Northey, USDA Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation said. “We know these are challenging times for farmers, and we have worked to improve flexibility of our programs to assist producers prevented from planting.”last_img read more

Is Amazon Go a sign of the downfall of a retail workforce?

first_imgInternet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Amazon#featured#Internet of Things#IoT#retail#robotics#top#unemployment#workforce center_img Any time a disruptive technology with industrial or productive applications comes into play, the question arises as to whether or not that technology will result in the loss of jobs. This issue has been tackled extensively in the manufacturing sector, but what about retail? Are robots and IoT technologies putting our retail workforce at risk?The Bureau of Labor Statistics has predicted a 7% growth in the retail workforce over a period of ten years, ending in 2024. This is a positive sign for the 4.8 million retail workers in the United States. However, what impact will technologies like those that drive the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and robotics have on the industry is harder to predict.For one, these technologies are being developed at a breakneck pace. In the past year, drones and other automated delivery methods have promised to give online retailers an edge in both speed and reach of delivery. This adds pressure on brick-and-mortar retailers to not only make their stores more appealing to a modern customer base but to find ways to increase efficiency to remain competitive.The impact of these disruptive technologiesTo better understand the plight of the retail sector, we should first examine what has been going on in the world of manufacturing.Manufacturing, especially in the auto industry, experienced a significant shift in employment as automated equipment became commonplace in facilities around the world.Warehouse-level work for online retailers especially are a different story. Robots are already rolling around Amazon’s expansive warehouses, grabbing shelving units full of merchandise and bringing it to their human counterparts which pick items and place them in boxes for shipping. Amazon’s robotic armies haven’t ceased Amazon’s need to hire. Amazon grew its labor force by 47% over a period of a single year, much of this growth occurring in its fulfillment centers.Back in 2012, PCWorld reported on Amazon’s vocational training program enabling employees that were currently working in unskilled warehouse jobs to train for more high-demand jobs. This includes job skills that aren’t directly related to Amazon, such as nursing.While a direct connection between an increase in automation and the decline of U.S. manufacturing jobs is a topic of debate among economists, there is no question that corporations in virtually every sector are actively seeking ways to lower staffing costs while improving efficiency.There’s no doubt that robots change the dynamic of the workplace. For retail workers, robots are being tested as a replacement for some of the many customer-facing retail jobs out there, but they’re in no danger of hitting the mainstream anytime soon. Human customers are slow to embrace a robot rolling down the aisles, asking customers if there is anything they can help the customer find.The perks of a new generation of retail technologiesAmazon, a predominantly online retailer, has offered its own solution to the problem in the form of a brick-and-mortar store that cuts the cashier out of the purchasing process. Customers of the upcoming Seattle-based Amazon Go store will walk in, pick out their item(s), and walk out. The only thing the customer needs to do is load the Amazon Go app on their phone and check in. Their Amazon account gets charged after leaving the store.This process takes advantage of a number of emerging technologies including computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning to track the customer’s movements throughout the store and which item(s) they take off the shelves as you shop. Upon leaving, your Amazon account is charged for any item(s) you have with you as you walk out the door.This has many upsides for customers. Shoppers don’t have to interact with a store employee if you don’t want to. You can rush in and rush out in seconds rather than waiting in line to check out. For the store, it means less overhead. You won’t need as big of a staff, or the staff that you have can spend more time concentrating on providing good customer service prior to checkout.For nearly a decade, technologists have been predicting that technologies such as RFID would enable shoppers to load their carts with goods and bypass the checkout line. Some stores, including Kroger’s, have been testing technologies that would speed up the checkout experience by automating the process utilizing 360-degree barcode scanners.Smart carts with location awareness and integrated RFID readers are already being tested and show a lot of promise. These carts, which include a tablet-like interface can do things like present shoppers with location-aware ads that direct them to a sale or recommend recipes based on nearby ingredients. These carts can even track shopping habits of particular customers and offer directions to specific items.This technology doesn’t inherently supplant a worker. It enhances the customer experience in a way that complements the customer service that can be provided by the human staff. It also provides the retailer with an additional source of revenue through ad sales and upselling.But for every upside….Any time you change a customer’s experience, a level of friction presents itself. Change is very difficult. People, in general, don’t like change if it means they have to learn how to use a new system. Efficiency has to come with a heavy dose of convenience.Right now, supermarkets and grocery stores around the world the United States are taking advantage of self-checkout lanes. These lanes enable customers to scan, bag, and work the register for their own purchase. This enables a single cashier to monitor 6, 10, or more checkout lanes at a time. This means fewer cashiers are needed.Self-checkout lanes are an alternative that these stores are turning to in order to improve efficiency. That creates less demand for cashiers in particular. Employees are often cross-trained to assist with any number of tasks when checkout is slow.The challenge of these self-checkout lanes comes in the form of increased occurrence of theft. Scales that weigh produce at the self-checkout scanner can be tricked by a crafty customer where a trained cashier ensures an accurate accounting for the merchandise being ringed up.Will Reynolds Young member of UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers) said, “Self-checkout lanes are slower and less efficient for customers, despite the misconception that they’re faster. They’re also easy to trick. A single “watcher” can only really monitor three lanes, and even then that’s too much.”Take the challenges of keeping an honest account of a customer’s purchase on a self-checkout lane and cut out the checkout part of this experience. We’ve all seen what a madhouse retail stores can be during sales, such as those held on Black Friday each year. How accurately can cameras and advanced scanning systems track merchandise when it’s being fumbled around in a crowded store?RFID tracking is a possible solution, but RFID-blocking bags and accessories are very easy to acquire.Just as with most technologies, the more convenient you make them, the less secure they become. People are crafty, and they will find ways around these systems. It could be argued that for every cashier replaced by a robot, there would need to be a human standing at the door checking receipts.What does the future hold?Amazon Go’s model is intriguing. If successful, it would become a proof of concept for a technology that would undoubtedly be licensed and/or adopted by other retailers. Go’s model isn’t one for a supercenter or a giant grocery store. It’s a test, with a small retail space in a calm corner of Seattle. Despite some claims in the media that as many 2,000 Amazon Go stores are in the works, the company insists that the checkout-free trial will be anything but a massive brick-and-mortar rollout.So while these technologies are certainly changing the world of retail, the idea that a store would be entirely powered by IoT technologies and staffed by robots is still a bit far-fetched. Beyond the boutique examples of trendy Quinoa restaurants, which still have human attendants present to assist customers with using the technology, the vision of retail stores smattering the landscape devoid of a human workforce remains one of science fiction.For now.

India vs England: England in trouble at 205-7, trail India by 252

first_imgIshant Sharma struck three times in the second session as England lost six wickets to collapse to 205-7 in response to India’s first-innings total of 457 on day three of the first test at Trent Bridge on Friday.Ishant Sharma struck three times in the second session as England lost six wicketsThe second session was a stark contrast to the first, where Sam Robson and Gary Ballance both carefully crafted out half centuries on a seemingly lifeless pitch that offered very little to England’s bowlers.Resuming on 131-1 after lunch, Robson was unable to add to his 59 as he was trapped lbw in the second over of the session by Sharma. Ballance then fell the same way as Robson for 71. They combined for 125 in 46 overs.Ian Bell, who made six fours in his 25, was caught behind by Mahendra Singh Dhoni when he was tempted into playing at a wide delivery. He tried too late to move his bat out the way, and became Sharma’s third dismissal at 172-4.Moeen Ali took his eye off Mohammed Shami’s low bouncer and was caught out by Shikhar Dhawan for 14, and then Matt Prior was controversially awarded out, caught behind on 5 off Bhuvneshwar Kumar.The umpire believed Prior edged the ball, but replays showed it missed his bat and clipped his back leg. Consistent with India’s longstanding policy on the issue, reviews were not available to the teams.Kumar struck again in the same over when Ben Stokes edged to Dhoni for a two-ball duck.advertisementEngland, requiring 53 more runs to avoid the follow on, has Joe Root (13) and Stuart Broad (1) at the crease.last_img read more
