University Distinguished Professor Anil Jain named Fellow by The World Academy of Sciences
Anil Jain of Michigan State University has been named a Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) for a lifetime of perspectives and publications that have inspired students and researchers worldwide. He was one of 46 new fellows elected at the 28th TWAS general meeting in Trieste, Italy, Nov. 27-29.
A University Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Jain is being honored for his pioneering contributions to pattern recognition resulting in novel solutions for a rapidly evolving biometrics industry.
TWAS was founded 35 years ago to increase representation by women and researchers from the world's science- and technology-lagging countries. Jain said it is not typical to have a person from a developed nation be elected a fellow by the worldwide organization.
Jain was nominated for the honor by Tieniu Tan of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), where he is a professor of computer vision and pattern recognition, CAS deputy secretary-general and director general of the CAS Bureau of International Cooperation.
Tan called Jain an internationally renowned scholar and educator. “For the past 40 years, he has actively promoted the research topics of pattern recognition, computer vision and biometrics in developing nations through lectures, exchange programs, technical assistance and student and postdoc training.
“Very few people get elected every year from North America,” he added. “He most certainly deserves the recognition.”
Co-nominator Sankar Pal, distinguished scientist and former director of the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, India, said Jain’s high quality pioneering research has had an enormous impact on statistical pattern recognition and computer vision.
“It is evident from a Google scholar h-index of 179, with total citation 185,000,” Pal said. “His IEEE-PAMI publications have made him a role model scientist to many of us and to young researchers in machine learning. All these extra-ordinary achievements made his election to TWAS Foreign Fellowship successful. I am happy to be a part of this endeavor.”
Jain is known around the world for his expertise in biometric recognition, computer vision, and fingerprint-matching technology.
“It has been my honor to work on projects in countries including India, China, and Indonesia," Jain said. “I advised the world’s largest biometrics project, Aadhaar, in India that has enrolled more than 1 billion residents utilizing fingerprints and iris images for de-duplication in India’s social welfare system.”
Jain also worked on a prototype fingerprint system to recognize infants and toddlers for vaccination tracking in Benin and India. The World Food Program is utilizing the prototype child ID system in field trials in Somalia in an effort to eliminate fraud in food distribution to children.
He holds one of 17 inaugural appointments to the U.S. Forensic Science Standards Board, a newly developed organization dedicated to identifying and fostering standards and guidelines for the nation’s forensic science community.
Jain has previously served as a member of the Defense Science Board and the National Academies panels on Whither Biometrics and Improvised Explosive Devices.
His list of honors is extensive. In 2016, he was elected to the United States National Academy of Engineering (among engineering’s highest honors) and as a Foreign Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering. In 2015, he was named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors for innovative discovery and technology, significant impact on society, and support and enhancement of innovation.
Jain is also a fellow of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE); Association of Computing Machinery (ACM); American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS); International Society for Optics and Photonics Society (SPIE); and International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR).
He is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, Humboldt Research Award, Fulbright Scholarship, King-Sun Fu Prize, and W. Wallace McDowell Award.
Jain is regularly invited to speak at national and internal forums, including the Third Annual ID4AFRICA Conference in Namibia in 2017; the 103rd Indian Science Congress, Information & Communication Science and Technology in India in 2016; the Royal Society meeting on United Kingdom forensics in London, 2015, and the keynote address at the Microsoft Computing in the 21st Century Conference in Beijing, 2014.
The newest 46 fellows increase the academy's total to 1,267 Fellows from 104 countries – the most countries represented since TWAS’s creation. The academy elected its first fellows ever from Bolivia, the Lao People's Democratic Republic, Libya, Nicaragua, and Zambia. In addition, members were elected from Iraq, Sudan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. Thirteen of the new fellows are women, who now account for 13 percent of the total membership.

Na George Mganga
Baada ya kufanikiwa kuwaondoa Mbabane Swallows katika Ligi ya Mabingwa Afrika kwa jumla ya ushindi wa mabao 8-1, Simba inaweza ikakutana na Nkana Red Devils ya Zambia ama UD Songo ya Msumbiji katika mchezo unaofuata.
Nkana ambayo mtanzania Hassan Kessy anaichezea itakuwa inavaana na Songo leo ukiwa ni mchezo wa marudiano baada ya ule wa mwanzo kumalizika kwa Songo kuchapwa mabao 2-1 wakiwa kwao.
Mechi ya leo itaamua kama Kessy anaweza akarejea Dar es Salaam kuja kukipiga na timu yake ya zamani endapo itamalizika kwa suluhu ama wakishinda.
Kuna uwezekano mkubwa kwa Nkana kushinda mechi hiyo kwani tayari wana faida ya bao moja la ugenini ingawa mpira una matokeo ya aina yake baada ya dakika 90 kumalizika.
Simba watacheza na mpinzani wake kati ya Nkana na Songo kati ya Disemba 15 au 16 na mechi ya marudiano itafanyika kati ya Disemba 27 na 28 mwaka huu.

Nkrumah’s All Africa People’s Conference: The Zimbabwean Factor
This December marks the 60th anniversary of the All African People’s Conference (AAPC) in Accra, Ghana. The nearly weeklong event in 1958 convened some 200 people representing 60 organisations from 27 countries, including prominent pan-African personalities like Patrice Lumumba and Tom Mboya. It marked a decisive shift in the organisation of pan-Africanist conferences from Europe to Africa and on the eve of the independence of many of the still colonised territories on the continent. It constitutes a key marker in the consolidation of Kwame Nkrumah’s image as a pan -African icon.
The initial impact of the AAPC was, however, much more than symbolic. An examination of the surge of political action in colonial Zimbabwe (then known as Southern Rhodesia) following the conference reveals the extent to which the AAPC contributed to deepening the liberation struggle in one of the African colonies with the strongest presence of white settlers.
Two Zimbabweans attended the AAPC conference – Joshua Nkomo, a major figure in the nationalist struggle who subsequently came to be known as “father Zimbabwe” and Paul Mushonga, who articulated a commitment to pan-African socialism but passed away early in the struggle in 1962.
Nkomo was named to the steering committee of the AAPC – attendance at its subsequent meetings across the continent enabled him to develop a range of important international contacts, which contributed to breaking the isolation the Rhodesian authorities sought to impose on the movement he led.
However, the impact of the AAPC on Zimbabwe was felt much more directly in the British colony as well.
On the side-lines of the conference, the delegates from Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Malawi (then known as Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland, respectively) which were all linked at the time in the Central African Federation, held a number of meetings and resolved that as neighbours linked under a white dominated political structure, they would increase their cooperation to push for self-determination.
Returning from Accra, H. Kamuzu Banda, leader of the liberation struggle in Malawi, transited overnight in Zimbabwe. He lodged with Mushonga and gave a blistering speech at a public meeting convened by the Zimbabwean nationalists. The speech was viewed by the settler authorities as being so incendiary, that Banda was subsequently banned from entering the colony.
In the weeks following the conclusion of the AAPC, the Southern Rhodesian government would ban several additional individuals from Malawi and Zambia from entering the colony in a bid to undermine transnational links between the liberation movements in the adjacent territories.
The meeting in Accra so unsettled the Rhodesian authorities, that on several occasions in parliament in 1959, it was discussed if legislation should be passed that would specifically ban the AAPC itself, or any political movement emanating from Ghana, from operating in Southern Rhodesia. A May 1959 government memorandum identified Ghana as the number one external threat to the security of the Central African Federation.
It was not only top government officials who were threatened by the new militancy stirred by the AAPC. Weeks after the Accra conference, a private Rhodesian citizen announced the formation of a “European National Congress” in a bid to halt the objectives of the AAPC in Southern Rhodesia.
The hysteria from the public and the increasing attention that Ghana as an agent of African liberation was receiving across the Federation spurred the government to take action. Dual states of emergency were declared in Zimbabwe and Malawi in late February and early March of 1959 and hundreds of nationalists were detained and the two main political parties in each territory were outlawed.
The fallout from this act ushered in a new stage of the liberation struggle and greatly increased support from the masses.
The impact of the AAPC was significant and extended far beyond the borders of Ghana. In convening such a diverse array of Africans, on African soil, Nkrumah struck a blow against the prevailing colonial status quo. As the anxious actions of the Rhodesian officials showed, the times were changing.

Africa Slow in Converting Natural Resources to Tangible Development Outcomes: Report
Africa has been slow to convert its natural resources endowments to tangible development outcomes, because of weaknesses in governance and capacities, a report released on Tuesday showed.
The report, jointly done by the African Union, the UN Economic Commission for Africa and the UN Development Program, examined efforts to improve governance of Africa's natural resources, especially need to strengthen natural resource governance institutions and frameworks for enhancement of domestic revenue mobilization.
Natural resource sector offers Africa potential to drive growth and provide the revenue base for financing development, but it is fraught with challenges, requiring all stakeholders -- governments, private sector and civil society -- to engage in reforming natural resource governance, said the 2018 Africa Sustainable Development Report released at the ongoing African Economic Conference in Rwandan capital Kigali.
"The executive wields significant control over the resources, which also compromises oversight by the legislature, in law and practice, with many countries experiencing unaccountable use of resource revenue, weak budget discipline and poor transparency," said the report.
Africa's overriding strategy of exporting commodities in their raw, non-valued-added form has failed to produce sustainable inclusive growth, improve people's wellbeing or diversify and transform its economies, according to the report.
The key to transforming natural resources into sustained prosperity in Africa is to build transparency and accountability into the decision-making chain and support inclusive decision-making over the long-term, Director of the Macroeconomic Policy Division of the UN Economic Commission for Africa Adam Elhiraika said at the releasing ceremony.
|Comentariu la Lansare de carte la Fundatia Titulescu de dezideriududas Cache Translate Page||Stimate Domnule Popescu,
Folosind terminologia d-nului acad. Ioan Aurel Pop de la ultima conferință a lui de la Liga studenților Cluj și Edictum Dei, ref. la « țările cu vocație imperiala » și țările cu « vocația umilinței », cred că România poate da un exemplu virtuos de democrație globală în materie de echilibru. Poate că excesele de acum ale « Germaniei » ( de fapt, ale unei foste agenții de presa germane de stat, actual private – e drept, probabil comenzile nu și le primește din Zambia, Mozambic sau Patagonia….) rabatate în timpul lui 1918, au contat și atunci….Dacă este să respectăm principiile democrației, eu așa cred. Nu este o pledoarie pentru umilință, nici vorbă, este o pledoarie pentru o viitoare vocație imperială a bunului-simț global. Odată i s-a spus democrație, dar toți au avut în vedere doar scopul. Cred însă că fără a se proiecta și o democrație ca mijloc, totul rămâne la nivelul unei povești frumoase care întotdeauna se termină prost…. Din păcate, inclusiv « statul de drept », cu « moțul MCV », tot doar scopului poate fi asociat, nu mijlocului cum ar sugera etimologia si ontologia situației. N-ar fi atat de imuabil….Evident, sunt nuanțe, dar esența aceasta-i.
PS În aceleași coordonate de bun-simț propus României am promovat și ideea de “Vișegradul românesc”. “Vișegradul clasic » este un model de împrumut de ipocrizie de la creditori care atunci când ajung la ananghie își cer datoria înapoi…Cam așa ar arata Europa cu doua, trei viteze, acum…Ar trebui să împrumutăm de la marile idei ale lui Titulescu, Manoilescu…, idei care sub o formă sau alta revin în actualitate…..Proiectul european, sprijinul NATO pentru acesta, nu a avut nimic din ipocrizia care s-a resedimentat în ultimii 30 de ani în stilul vechiului realism politic…România și românii pot fi forțe care să resusciteze democrația globala ! Nu vom reuși ? Măcar vom elimina vorbele înșelătoare din retorica globală, care nu vor mai vitupera piețele din România uitând de cele din Franța….În timpul « sfârșitului istoriei” ( Fukuyama - 1992) era vorba de alte piețe….S-ar putea întampla însă asta, dacă s-ar inventa ipocrizii cu 2 sau 3 viteze…..Ca și dvs. însă, și eu cred că totuși Godot va veni….Cum vă scriam astăzi despre proiectul cu d-nul acad. Răzvan Theodorescu, ref. la interfețele dintre religie-societate-economie, aduc o extensie : poate că Godot va veni, tocmai pentru că “Ismail » nu-și va mai dori să plece de acasă….|

Online social networks are major hubs of communications that are used to share information by societies worldwide. However, the ability to freely communicate on these platforms is increasingly restricted in countries across the globe and existing technological solutions do not fully address the needs of affected communities. In this paper we explore the design process of SecurePost, a novel tool that allows verified group anonymity to those communicating publicly on online social networks. We present survey-based research and ethnographic interviews of communities vulnerable to censorship conducted in Zambia, Turkey, and Mongolia between 2013 to 2016. We use analysis of this data to ground our work. We explore needs and requirements of users such as modes of censorship, resistance to network disruption, and appropriate platform consideration. We outline our technological solution and expand on how on-the-ground research of user communities guides technological requirements.

|Finnish National Prize honours creators of rock 'n' roll, film and fashion Cache Translate Page|
The Finnish National Prize, an annual cultural award from the Ministry of Education and Culture, went to Henry "Remu" Aaltonen, the drummer and vocalist of the 1970s band Hurriganes; the fashion designer behind Ivana Helsinki, Paola Suhonen; and Academy Award nominated director Selma Vilhunen.
This year each of the prizes, which were handed out by culture minister Sampo Terho on Monday, include an award of 25,000 euros.
Other recipients of this year's prize include the Oulu-based design firm alt Architects, the non-profit hobby group Finnish Game Jam, poet Jyrki Kiiskinen and Helsinki's Koko Jazz Club.
Aaltonen, Suhonen and Vilhunen
The 70-year-old bald-headed rock star Aaltonen helped to found the rock band Hurriganes in 1971 in Helsinki. The group went on to enjoy more than a decade of success and popularity in Finland, Sweden and Estonia, releasing their music on the Love Records label. The band's name was intentionally misspelled and their music has been described as nostalgic roots-based rock 'n' roll which has become icons of the rock scene of the 70s and 80s. During its heyday, the band recorded several covers of popular 50s hits, but the group also wrote their own songs, including one of their most well-known, Get On. The track was recorded - and improvised - at the producer's request for an extra song at the last minute when the band was finishing up their second album in 1974.
Fashion designer Suhonen founded the clothing, art and film company Ivana Helsinki in 1998. By 2007 the company was the first Nordic firm ever to take part in the prestigious Paris fashion week. Suhonen has continued to design products and concepts around the world. The designer also ran into some controversy earlier this year when the charity group Plan International Finland ran a high-profile ad campaign featuring a pregnant 12 year-old Zambian girl posing in a line of maternity clothing design by Suhonen.
Director and screenwriter Vilhunen has made fiction and documentary films during a career that started nearly two decades ago. Her short film Do I Have to Take Care of Everything? was nominated for an Academy Award for best live action short film in 2013. Vilhunen has received awards for her other work as well, like 2008's documentary Pony Girls and the TV film Pietà in 2007 and was co-writer of the 2005 feature film Homesick. Her 2016 film Little Wing was one of Finland's most prominent films in the past few years.
This year's prizes were handed out on Monday in Helsinki and the recipients will be acknowledged at the Independence Day gala at the Presidential Palace on Thursday, 6 December.
The Finnish National Prize has been handed out annually since 1993.
