GOOD MORNING UFOCASEBOOKERS cheesy


Telegraph

Female pilot and nurse decorated for life-saving Afghan heroism

Maj Laura Nicholson has received the Distinguished Flying Cross for twice calmly taking her Chinook into heavy fire to pick up casualties, while Sqn Ldr Charlotte Thompson-Edgar was made Associate of the Royal Red Cross for life-saving work in six tours of Afghanistan.

By Ben Farmer, Defence Correspondent
6:01AM GMT 01 Mar 2015

An RAF emergency nurse who has helped evacuate more than 600 wounded from the battlefield and a helicopter pilot who braved heavy fire to save lives have been awarded medals in the latest round of military honours.

Maj Laura Nicholson of the Army Air Corps received the Distinguished Flying Cross for twice calmly taking her Chinook into heavy fire to pick up casualties, as bullets tore through the helicopter and wounded one of her crew.

Sqn Leader Charlotte Thompson-Edgar received the Associate of the Royal Red Cross for life-saving heroism over six tours in Afghanistan. She is believed to have carried out more medical evacuation missions than any other British nurse and was at the forefront of developing medical care in the back of helicopter ambulances.

The pair were given their medals last week on the same day as L/Cpl Joshua Leakey became the first living British recipient of the Victoria Cross from the Afghanistan campaign.

Major Nicholson, who at the time of her heroic actions in December 2013 was an RAF Flight Lieutenant, said she was “overwhelmed” by the award.

The citation for her medal praised her calmness in the face of deadly danger and, once she had recovered one casualty, the way she returned to the same site to rescue others, knowing it to be “highly dangerous”.

She is the second female pilot to be awarded the DFC. Flt Lt Michelle Goodman was the first, for a life-saving flight under heavy fire to rescue a casualty in Basra, Iraq, in 2007.

Sqn Leader Thompson-Edgar said her own award for service from 2007 to 2014 was “very humbling without a doubt”.

She said: “There are so many other people that should have it as well. It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind in the past few days.”

The 40-year-old from Peterborough was praised for her “great skill, determination and courage” treating casualties as part of the British military’s Medical Emergency Response Team evacuating wounded troops from the battlefields of Helmand.

She said: “All of us are doing it for the soldiers on the ground. They are doing such a difficult job and the terrain that they are walking in is so dangerous. For their peace of mind and for their morale, knowing that they have a good, highly-skilled capability to come and pick them up if the worst happened, that’s why we were doing it."

Google wants to rank websites based on facts not links
28 February 2015 by Hal Hodson
The trustworthiness of a web page might help it rise up Google's rankings if the search giant starts to measure quality by facts, not just links

THE internet is stuffed with garbage. Anti-vaccination websites make the front page of Google, and fact-free "news" stories spread like wildfire. Google has devised a fix – rank websites according to their truthfulness. Google's search engine currently uses the number of incoming links to a web page as a proxy for quality, determining where it appears in search results. So pages that many other sites link to are ranked higher. This system has brought us the search engine as we know it today, but the downside is that websites full of misinformation can rise up the rankings, if enough people link to them. A Google research team is adapting that model to measure the trustworthiness of a page, rather than its reputation across the web. Instead of counting incoming links, the system – which is not yet live – counts the number of incorrect facts within a page. "A source that has few false facts is considered to be trustworthy," says the team (arxiv.org/abs/1502.03519v1). The score they compute for each page is its Knowledge-Based Trust score.

The software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet. Facts the web unanimously agrees on are considered a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings. There are already lots of apps that try to help internet users unearth the truth. LazyTruth is a browser extension that skims inboxes to weed out the fake or hoax emails that do the rounds. Emergent, a project from the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, New York, pulls in rumours from trashy sites, then verifies or rebuts them by cross-referencing to other sources.

LazyTruth developer Matt Stempeck, now the director of civic media at Microsoft New York, wants to develop software that exports the knowledge found in fact-checking services such as Snopes, PolitiFact and FactCheck.org so that everyone has easy access to them. He says tools like LazyTruth are useful online, but challenging the erroneous beliefs underpinning that information is harder. "How do you correct people's misconceptions? People get very defensive," Stempeck says. "If they're searching for the answer on

Ex-guerrilla, pot-legalizing, champion of the poor president: Uruguay's Mujica steps down

User Image

Uruguay's president, Jose “Pepe” Mujica, a former guerrilla who lives on a farm and gives most of his salary to charity, is stepping down after five years in office, ending his term as one of the world's most popular leaders ever.

Mujica, 79, is leaving office with a 65 percent approval rating. He is constitutionally prohibited from serving consecutive terms.

"I became president filled with idealism, but then reality hit," Mujica said in an interview with a local newspaper earlier this week, according to AFP.

Some call him “the world’s poorest president.” Others the "president every other country would like to have." But Mujica says "there's still so much to do" and hopes that the next government, led by Tabare Vazquez (who was elected president for a second time last November) will be “better than mine and will have greater success."

Mujica said he succeeded in putting Uruguay on the world map. He managed to turn the cattle-ranching country, home to 3,4 million people, into an energy-exporting nation, Brazil being Uruguay’s top export market (followed by China, Argentina, Venezuela and the US.)

Uruguay's $55 billion economy has grown an average 5.7 percent annually since 2005, according to the World Bank. Uruguay has maintained its decreasing trend in public debt-to-GDP ratio – from 100 percent in 2003 to 60 percent by 2014. It has also managed to decrease the cost of its debt, and reduce dollarization - from 80 percent in 2002 to 50 percent in 2014.

“We’ve had positive years for equality. Ten years ago, about 39 percent of Uruguayans lived below the poverty line; we’ve brought that down to under 11 percent and we’ve reduced extreme poverty from 5 percent to only 0.5 percent,” Mujica told the Guardian in November.

After Latin America’s anti-drug war proved a failure, the South American country became the first in the world to fully legalize marijuana, with Mujica arguing that drug trafficking is in fact more dangerous than marijuana itself.

READ MORE: Six released Guantanamo detainees ‘happy to be’ in Uruguay

One of the most progressive leaders in Latin America. Muijica also legalized abortion and same-sex marriage and agreed to take in detainees once held at the notorious Guantanamo Bay. Six former US detainees, who were never charged with a crime, came to Uruguay in December as refugees. The six included four Syrians, a Palestinian and a Tunisian. Although they were cleared for release back in 2009, the US was not able to discharge them until Uruguayan President offered to receive them.

Mujica, a former leftist Tupamaro guerrilla leader, spent 13 years in jail during the years of Uruguay's military dictatorship. He survived torture and endless months of solitary confinement. Majica said he never regretted his time in jail, which he believes helped shape his character.

Mujica's kindness speaks volumes: He refused to move to Uruguay’s luxurious presidential mansion to live in a farm outside Montevideo with his wife and a three-legged dog named Manuela. Pepe gives away about 90 percent of his salary to charity, saying he simply doesn't need it. He drives an 1987 Volkswagen Beetle.
Last year, Mujica turned down a $1 million offer from an Arab sheik who offered to buy his blue car. Pepe refused to sell the vehicle, saying it would offend "all those friends who pooled together to buy it for us.”

In January, a young Uruguayan man posted a message on his Facebook page recounting how Mujica and his wife picked him up while he was hitchhiking.

“On Monday, I was looking for a ride from Conchilla and guess who picked me up on the road?” Gerhald Acosta wrote on his Facebook post January 7. “They were the only ones who would stop!”

“When I got out, I thanked them profusely because not everyone helps someone out on the road, and much less a president,” the man told Uruguay’s El Observador newspaper.
