the months leading up to the 2016 US presidential election False news of course was around long before the election But supermarket tabloids peddling stories about aliens and celebrity miracles are less insidious than say “Pizzagate” a false internet rumor that led a gunman to fire an assault weapon inside a Washington pizzeria in December Tips to spot false news include looking closely at website addresses to see if they are trying to spoof real news sites and checking websites’ “about” sections for more information Facebook has been “working very hard to figure out how to get their arms wrapped around this” said Lucy Dalglish journalism dean at the University of Maryland “Facebook was always very interested technology but not the social and civic implications of technology It’s like they have become citizens” She praised the company for seeking help from outside experts including academics researchers and nonprofit journalism organizations The company for instance is working with outside fact-checking and media organizations to identify false news as such And once they are identified Facebook is trying to dry up the “economic incentives” of false news sites by making it difficult for them to buy ads on Facebook Mosseri said most of the false news content on Facebook is from spammers trying to seek a profit and not for example political propaganda This is apparent as the sites often flip-flop around opposing political candidates or ideologies for example or have multiple pages that support different candidates Facebook’s other efforts include the creation with other companies groups and tech leaders of a “news integrity” nonprofit to promote news literacy and increase the public’s trust in journalism A nascent Facebook Journalism Project meanwhile is a lofty effort to work with news organizations to develop products provide tools for journalists and generally promote trust in news The new feature will be available in 14 countries including the US Germany France Italy the UK Philippines Taiwan and Brazil Also on Thursday Facebook said that its messaging app Messenger will soon start showing users suggestions from a virtual assistant to users in the US The artificial intelligence-powered assistant called M will suggest things it deems might be helpful to users based on the conversations they are having This can include sending stickers sharing your location with a friend to meet up hailing a ride or sending money to friends The more someone uses M the “smarter” it gets — and if the suggestions are routinely ignored it will stop providing them While having a virtual assistant monitor your private messages can sound creepy Facebook stresses that there is no advertising component to the move Facebook unveiled M in 2015 but until now it’s only been testing out the suggestions with a small percentage of Messenger users For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by ANI | Washington | Published: November 27 2010 12:28 pm Related News A new study by researchers at the University of California has indicated that chronic jet lag alters the brain in ways that cause memory and learning problems long after one’s return to a regular 24-hour schedule Twice a week for four weeksthe researchers subjected female Syrian hamsters to six-hour time shifts the equivalent of a New York-to-Paris airplane flight During the last two weeks of jet lag and a month after recovery from itthe hamsters’ performance on learning and memory tasks was measured As expectedduring the jet lag periodthe hamsters had trouble learning simple tasks that the hamsters in the control group aced What surprised the researchers was that these deficits persisted for a month after the hamsters returned to a regular day-night schedule What’s morethe researchers discovered persistent changes in the brainspecifically within the hippocampusa part of the brain that plays an intricate role in memory processing They found thatcompared to the hamsters in the control groupthe jet-lagged hamsters had only half the number of new neurons in the hippocampus following the month long exposure to jet lag New neurons are constantly being added to the adult hippocampus and are thought to be important for hippocampal-dependent learningKriegsfeld saidwhile memory problems are associated with a drop in cell maturation in this brain structure “This is the first time anyone has done a controlled trial of the effects of jet lag on brain and memory functionand not only do we find that cognitive function is impaired during the jet lagbut we see an impact up to a month afterward” said Lance KriegsfeldUC Berkeley associate professor of psychology and a member of the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute “What this says is thatwhether you are a flight attendantmedical residentor rotating shift workerrepeated disruption of circadian rhythms is likely going to have a long-term impact on your cognitive behavior and function” Kriegsfeldgraduate student Erin M Gibson and their colleagues reported their findings this week in the onlineopen-access journal PLoS ONE “Other studies have shown that chronic transmeridian flights increase deficits in memory and learning along with atrophy in the brain’s temporal lobesuggesting a possible hippocampal deficit” said Gibson “Our study shows directly that jet lag decreases neurogenesis in the hippocampus” Each of us has an internal24-hour clock that drives our so-called circadian rhythmwhich is reset every day by small amounts When a person enters a time zone that is not synched with his or her internal clockit takes much longer to reset this daily rhythmcausing jet lag until the internal clock gets re-synched This acute disruption of circadian rhythms can cause general malaise as well as gastrointestinal problems because the body”s hunger cycle is out of sync with meal timesKriegsfeld said The researchers used hamsters in their study because they are a classic model of circadian rhythms Their bodily rhythms are so preciseKriegsfeld saidthat they will produce eggsor ovulateevery 96 hours to within a window
