Kashmir on agenda of UNSC as disputed territory Pak

by admin
first_imgIslamabad: Pakistan on Thursday said that Kashmir has been on the agenda of the UN Security Council as a "disputed territory" as it rejected India's contention that Jammu and Kashmir is its internal matter. "Pakistan rejects the unilateral action by India to change the status of Jammu and Kashmir," Foreign Office Spokesperson Muhammad Faisal said while addressing the weekly media briefing here. India on Monday revoked Article 370 of the Constitution to withdraw the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories -- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

Faisal said Prime Minister Imran Khan has directed to utilise all options after revocation of Article 370 by India. "No unilateral step by the Indian government can change this internationally accepted disputed area as enshrined in the United Nations Security Council resolution nor will this ever be acceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and of Pakistan," Faisal said. Responding to a question, Faisal said Pakistan had always been ready for negotiations and dialogue for peaceful resolution of all issues. "It is India that has always shied away from negotiations and talk," he added. India maintains that terror and talks cannot go together with Pakistan.last_img

The Player Kylian Mbappe Really Plays Like

by admin
Xherdan Shaqiri, Switzerland, 26No player epitomizes the World Cup’s ability to rejuvenate a player’s brand as much as Switzerland’s pocket-sized tank, Xherdan Shaqiri. After Shaqiri’s lackadaisical season for Stoke City, which was relegated from the Premier League, it looked as though his career trajectory — from Bayern Munich and Inter Milan to the second rung of English soccer — would continue to be downward. But that course may have been reversed in Russia as Shaqiri led Switzerland to the knockout round — notching a goal, an assist and a team-high 10 chances.It may well be the case that Liverpool intended to purchase Shaqiri regardless of his showing in Russia, but the team’s acquisition of the Swiss winger will definitely go down better with supporters after a series of performances in Russia that FiveThirtyEight’s model found were similar to those of Argentina’s Pablo Aimar in 2002 and the iconic Zinedine Zidane of France in 1998. Breakout performances seemed to be everywhere at the 2018 World Cup — young talents were launched to international fame, and established players had their names crystallized on the world stage. The world’s biggest soccer tournament gives players a chance to shine outside the club-level paradigm of consistency and — apart from the English Premier League — a largely domestic audience. On the back of a few impressive performances, players like CSKA Moscow’s Aleksandr Golovin, one of the key players in Russia’s run to the quarterfinals, can earn themselves the chance to move to one of Europe’s top clubs, even if this recruitment trend is less common than it once was.Using FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup Doppelganger tool, which analyzes the statistical footprint of every player to feature in the world’s biggest tournament since 1966, we can compare the breakout talents of 2018 to their historical counterparts:Kylian Mbappé, France, 19 years oldKylian Mbappé’s talent has been known by soccer’s inner sanctum for the best part of a decade: Europe’s biggest clubs have been circling like sharks since he was just 10 years old. While his performance in this tournament, culminating in being crowned the tournament’s best young player, may come as no surprise to those who knew of him, this summer’s World Cup has turned the French speedster into a global phenomenon.Mbappé’s electric ability to create space and dribble progressively defines his output from the tournament, making his closest historical analogue the 1998 World Cup performance by Denmark’s Brian Laudrup, who was a similarly dazzling dribbler. In Russia, Mbappe thrived on the counterattack for France while playing at right wing, but he may yet transition to a role in the center of the field. If that happens, the predictions of many that he is heir apparent to Thierry Henry may well bear fruit. Kieran Trippier, England, 27England finally met pre-tournament dark horse expectations by making it to the semifinal this year. And even though Harry Kane took home the golden boot, the Englishman who really made a name for himself was a right back: Kieran Trippier.Trippier’s willingness to cross the ball is a throwback to a quintessentially English style, and that combined with his devastating set-piece delivery added up to a performance that was very similar to David Beckham’s in the 2006 World Cup. And that’s about as complimentary a comparison as Trippier could hope for. Hirving Lozano, Mexico, 22There are few better ways to announce yourself at the World Cup than how Hirving “Chucky” Lozano went about it. In Mexico’s first match of the tournament, Lozano scored the winner against the defending World Cup champions, Germany. Playing on the left with an ability to roam, the diminutive attacker was El Tri’s main ball progressor on the counterattack.The 2014 performance by Juan Cuadrado, who fulfilled a similar role for Colombia, providing a fast outlet for Los Cafeteros on the break, is the second-most-similar performance to Lozano’s in 2018. The 2006 showing of Arjen Robben, the Netherlands’ left-footed dribbler, is the third-most-similar. Romelu Lukaku, Belgium, 25While it may seem odd to class a striker whom Manchester United purchased for nearly $100 million as a “breakout star,” Romelu Lukaku has had his fair share of doubters. No doubt, his performance in Russia has silenced the majority of them: The towering striker’s intelligent movement and incisive hold-up play complemented a 4-goal haul.The 2010 performance of Miroslav Klose, who is the top World Cup goal-scorer of all time, is the most similar historically to Lukaku’s 2018 outing, while the 2006 showing by the explosive Brazilian Adriano is third-closest.

Study Mag Industry Hops On Action Code Trend Engages Consumers

by admin
first_imgAll in all, the number of magazines opting to have at least one action code grew from 63 percent in the first month of 2011 to 96 percent by September, with the most growth beginning in March when about 80 percent of the top 100 largest consumer magazines had at least one action code.The third quarter of 2011 had the largest number of codes in an issue: Glamour magazine had 54 codes in its September issue and reigned in over 500,000 impressions.Though there are many different types of action codes, the most popular, according to the study, seems to be QR codes: in Q1 of 2011, QR codes accounted for 61 percent of all action codes used, with Microsoft Tags accounting for 39 percent. While QR codes do appear to be the most popular,other action codes are gaining steam: in Q3 2011 QR codes accounted for 62 percent of those used; Microsoft Tags 30 percent; SpyderLynk Social Snap Tags were used at a rate of 4 percent, JagTag 3 percent and all others 1 percent. With the proliferation of smart phone technology, magazines have had a variety of options to create unique content, engage readers and please advertisers with the usage of action codes like a Microsoft Tag, QR Code or Digimarc watermark. According to a new study released this week by mobile technology company and app developer Nellymoser, Inc., the magazine industry is aggressively pursuing this trend. “No single category or reader demographic dominates the list of top magazines containing action codes,” the study says. “This indicates that editors and advertisers are using action codes to reach a wide audience. Women’s magazine titles, which focus on fashion, family and homemaking, continue to outnumber other titles as they did in Q2.” In total, tags in the beauty, home and fashion categories represent about 38 percent of all codes use in advertising. While these action codes are used in multiple capacities, data from the study shows that advertising accounts for most action code growth—in January there were seven advertising codes for each editorial code and by September the ratio grew to nearly 20:1. Additionally, in the month of September there were 35 editorial driven action codes in the magazines surveyed and about 482 advertising action codes. “The use of action codes continued to rise in Q3,” the study says. “From January to September 2011, the number of magazine action codes grew a dramatic 476 percent from just 88 in January to 507 in September. In total, 1,155 action codes were printed during Q3 (2.9 percent of all pages), up from 352 in Q1 (a 228 percent increase).” The study collected data from the 100 largest circulation U.S. magazines to determine action code usage across several verticals. The group found that the action codes were used in a variety of ways that included access to video, a contest promotion or sweepstakes, a coupon offer or an interactive shopping experience. While the push for advertising engagement is high for action codes, at least one publication, according to the survey, is leveraging them to heighten editorial content.“In a series of 2011 fall issues, Sports Illustrated magazine used video extensively in its ‘Just Askin’’ campaign to entertain, educate and engage readers. Every week, an action code appeared in the magazine that led to a video featuring a Q&A with a selected athlete, behind the scenes footage and more,” says the study. “Readers could also interact by submitting a question for a future interview directly from their phones. The repetition of the codes across weekly issues was designed to increase reader engagement while short video previews encouraged ongoing reader interaction.”last_img

AntiHaftar forces near Libya capital launch counterattack

by admin
first_imgA Libyan fighter loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) fires a rocket propelled grenade during clashes with forces loyal to strongman Khalifa Haftar south of the capital Tripoli`s suburb of Ain Zara, on 20 April. PhotoForces loyal to Libya's unity government announced Saturday a counter-attack against military strongman Khalifa Haftar's fighters, as clashes south of the capital Tripoli intensified."We have launched a new phase of attack. Orders were given early this morning to advance and gain ground," said Mustafa al-Mejii, a spokesman for the Government of National Accord's (GNA's) forces.Haftar launched an offensive on 4 April against the UN-recognised GNA, which is based in Tripoli, resulting in repeated fierce clashes on the southern edges of the capital.Sustained rocket and shellfire could be heard in several districts of Tripoli on Saturday, after several days of less intense fighting and stalemate on the ground.Haftar backs a rival administration to the GNA based in eastern Libya that refuses to recognise the authority of the Tripoli government.The GNA counter-attack came a day after the White House said US president Donald Trump spoke on the phone with Haftar, to discuss "a shared vision for Libya's transition to a stable, democratic political system".The White House statement said Trump recognised Haftar's "significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya's oil resources", during the conversation on Monday.Ahmad Al-Mesmari, a spokesman for Haftar's self styled Libyan National Army (LNA), said late Saturday: "We have won the political battle and we have convinced the world that the armed forces are fighting terrorism."He also acknowledged that "very violent" fighting had taken place on multiple fronts on Saturday.The GNA "has received reinforcements from Al-Qaeda terrorists, Islamic State and foreign mercenaries", according to Mesmari.Air strikesBut he did not acknowledge the LNA's loss of ground -- in particular Ain Zara, in the southern suburbs of Tripoli.An AFP team on the ground confirmed pro-GNA forces had advanced in Ain Zara, where the frontline was shifted a few kilometres south.The Tripoli Protection Force -- a coalition of pro-GNA militias, including fighters from the city of Misrata -- also advanced to Wadi Rabie, another southern suburb, an officer on the ground told AFP.The advance followed a "heavy artillery (attack) and medium-calibre fire early in the morning", he said, but did not want to be named.He said eight of his fighters had been wounded.Seven air strikes were carried out against military positions held by the LNA, according to the GNA's military spokesman Colonel Mohamad Gnounou.Gnounou said strikes took place south of Gharian, 100 kilometres (60 miles) southwest of the capital, and against an airbase at Al-Wotya, 50 kilometres further southwest.Welcoming the gains by his forces on the ground, GNA head Fayez al-Sarraj called in a statement for humanitarian law to be respected.The LNA, for its part, said its fighters were "taking control of several new positions on the frontlines in Tripoli"."Our forces are progressing as the GNA militias retreat on all fronts," the LNA said on its Facebook page.LNA "reinforcements have arrived at the frontlines -- military brigades, army battalions - to (win) the battle as soon as possible", it added.International divide deepensHaftar's offensive has sharpened fault lines in policy towards Libya among world powers.On Thursday, Russia and the United States opposed a British bid backed by France and Germany at the UN Security Council to demand a ceasefire in the North African country.Observers see Trump's subsequently acknowledged contact with the strongman, at the expense of Sarraj, as evidence of US support that explains Haftar's determination to pursue his offensive against Tripoli.Hundreds of "yellow vest" protesters on Friday demonstrated in Tripoli against Haftar, and also accused France of backing his forces.Wearing the trademark yellow vests of French anti-government demonstrators, they were among thousands of Libyans who flooded a central Tripoli square to rally in support of the GNA.The French embassy in Libya on Friday tweeted -- in Arabic -- that Paris was "opposed to the attack" on Tripoli and urged all parties to abide by a ceasefire and engage in peace negotiations.At least 220 people have been killed and more than 1,000 wounded since the violence erupted, according to the World Health Organization, while the International Organization for Migration says over 25,000 people have been displaced.Libya has been mired in chaos since the NATO-backed uprising that toppled and killed dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.Alongside the rivalry between the GNA and the LNA, myriad militias have vied for control of key cities, while jihadist activity has also periodically flared.last_img

Post Is Taking Over TwitterA 'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge'-Themed Cookbook Is Coming This Fall Created by Oliver Greenwald and Sam Nassif, the “Drip Drop” is an edible ring that slides on regular-size ice cream cones. The ring, which is available in plain or chocolate-covered flavors, prevents ice cream from dripping onto other surfaces. The best part? You can nom on it after you’re ice cream is all gone.At the end of the day though, it’s not just about melting ice creams. This edible device might help reduce pollution. According to Greenwald and Nassif, an average of three napkins are used to help clean up each ice cream cone mess. By making the switch to Drip Drop, consumers can help protect the environment and minimize their carbon footprint whenever they eat gelato or frozen yogurt in cones.In 2016, Greenwald and Nassif took their edible innovation to ABC’s Shark Tank, where they delighted the judges with Drip Drop’s potential to help ice cream lovers worldwide. Over the past two years, Greenwald and Nassif have been working on Drip Drop’s manufacturing process, with the aim to test the product in the Denver market and launch it in stores next year.More on Geek.com:McDonald’s Cuts Happy Meal From its Dollar MenuWTF?

Education specialists argue that ILSA scores should not be used to conduct

by admin
first_img As the authors note, ILSAs such as PISA and TIMSS have, in recent years, become a tool for nationalistic bragging among those with high scores—those with lower scores are more often scorned. But, they note, using ILSA scores in such a way offers little in the way of educational improvement, which is the generally accepted purpose of testing students. They also note that there is a danger in over-interpreting such scores because it can have a dramatic negative impact on education policy. There is a problem, they point out, when journalists and politicians use ILSA test scores as means to serve their own ends rather than to champion the goals of educating the world's children—it can skew how people view their country's education system.Ranking ILSA score results by country, the authors note, is quite misleading—instead of offering a fair assessment of academic abilities, such lists instead offer little except headlines or web clicks. They also note that the rankings do not always give an accurate portrayal of academic achievement—some countries jump around on the list from year to year, for example, without making any changes. Others skew their own results by hiding low-scoring students. They note also that there are vast differences in how hard students try to do well on such tests—for many students in places like Korea or Japan, scoring high on an ILSA is so important that parents spend hours helping them prepare, or spend thousands on tutors. Meanwhile, in places like the U.S., students see little advantage in preparing at all.The authors suggest that all countries view results on ILSAs as a means of learning more about their own system and in so doing discover ways that their own educational systems can be improved.

In their paper, Judith Singer and Henry Braun point out problems with comparing ILSA results between countries and suggest they could be put to better use by local entities looking to improve their education systems. More information: Judith D. Singer et al. Testing international education assessments, Science (2018). DOI: 10.1126/science.aar4952SummaryNews stories on international large-scale education assessments (ILSAs) tend to highlight the performance of the media outlet's home country in comparison with the highest-scoring nations (in recent years, typically located in East Asia). Low (or declining) rankings can be so alarming that policy-makers leap to remedies—often ill-founded—on the basis of what they conclude is the "secret sauce" behind the top performers' scores. As statisticians studying the methods and policy uses of ILSAs (1), we believe the obsession with rankings—and the inevitable attempts to mimic specific features of the top performing systems—not only misleads, it diverts attention from more constructive uses of ILSA data. We highlight below the perils of drawing strong policy inferences from such highly aggregated data, illustrate benefits of conducting more nuanced analyses of ILSA data both within and across countries, and offer concrete suggestions for improving future ILSAs.last_img

He could have died if it wasn’t for the quick response of the EMS staff on the field. The injury was so bad that it reduced many of his teammates to tears.Many said that his career was likely done, and after hearing accounts of his leg essentially folding in half, it was hard to credibly doubt them. Bridgewater has been on the rehab grind since the injury, and yesterday he proved his doubters wrong by returning to Vikings practice for the first time since going down.It’s unknown how far he is from actually being ready to play in a game, or if he’ll be a part of Minnesota’s future plans, but it’s hard to bet against the guy.

CMU students propose a competitive reinforcement learning approach based on A3C using

by admin
first_imgEarlier this month, some students of Robotics Institute Carnegie Mellon University published a paper proposing a learning approach called competitive reinforcement learning using visual transfer. This method, with the help of asynchronous advantage actor critic (A3C) architecture, generalizes a target game using an agent trained on a source game in Atari. What is A3C architecture? The A3C architecture is an asynchronous variant of the actor-critic model, in which the actor takes in the current environment state and determines the best action to take from there. It consists of four convolutional layers, an LSTM layer, and two fully connected layers to predict actions and value functions of the states. In this architecture, multiple worker agents are trained in parallel, each with their own copy of the model and environment. Advantage here refers to a metric that is set to judge how good the agents’ actions were. What is the aim of competitive reinforcement learning? The learning approach introduced in this paper aims to use a reinforcement agent to generalize between two related but vastly different Atari games like Pong-v0 and Breakout-v0. This is done by learning visual mappers: given a frame from the source game, we should be able to generate the analogous frame in the target game. In both these games, a paddle is controlled to hit a ball to obtain a certain objective. Using this method the six actions of Pong-v0 {No Operation, Fire, Right, Left, Right Fire, Left Fire} are mapped to the four actions of Breakout-v0 as {Fire, Fire, Right, Left, Right, Left} respectively. The rewards are mapped directly from source game to target game without any scaling. The source and target environment they experimented on was OpenAI gym. They found underlying similarities between the source and the target game to represent common knowledge using Unsupervised Image-to-image Translation (UNIT) Generative adversarial networks (GANs). The target game competes with its visual representation obtained after using the UNIT GAN as a visual mapper between the source and target game. How competitive reinforcement learning works? The following diagram depicts how knowledge is transferred from source game to target game by competitively and simultaneously fine-tuning the model using two different visual representations of the target game: Source: arXiv First stage: The baseline A3C network is trained for source game (Pong-v0) in the first stage of the training process. The knowledge learned is then transferred from this model to learning to play target game (Breakout-v0). The efficiency of transfer learning method in terms of training time and data efficiency across parallel actor-learners is measured. Second stage: In this stage of the training process, two representations of the target game are used amongst the workers in parallel. The first representation of transfer process uses the target game frames taken directly from the environment. The second representation of transfer process uses the frames learned from the visual mapper (visual analogies between games). The ratio of number of workers that train directly on frames queried from the target game and frames mapped from the source game is a hyperparameter that is determined through experimentation. Results They concluded that it is possible to generate a visual mapper for semantically similar games with the use of UNIT GANs. Learning from two different representations of the same game and using them simultaneously for transfer learning stabilizes the learning curve. Although the workers using representations of the target game obtained from the visual mappers did not perform well in a stand alone setting, they showed improvements when used for the competitive learning.

On April 2, the pair went on a hike down a mountain path bordering Costa Rica. They were never seen again, local residents told the BBC.According to a separate BBC report, an 18-person Dutch search team traveled to the area in May but did not find any sign of the women.Later, Panamanian police found human remains, a backpack, two cellphones and a pair of boots believed to have belonged to the women.On Monday, forensic analysts matched DNA from the remains to Froon’s family members, and on Wednesday, Kremers’s family released a statement saying they believed Kremer’s body also was found in the forest.Investigators have not yet determined the causes of death.

diversionary tactic work Rio de Janeiro: Seven people including a 14-years-old boy have been killed in continuing violence between army-backed police units and Rio de Janeiro's criminal gangs according to reports In the latest crackdown soldiers and marines in camouflage and carrying rifles could be seen searching people as they came in and out of two poor neighbourhoods known as favelas within the posh Copacabana beach area Representational image of Rio de Janeiro Police trying to quell a gang fight Reuters The military which was put in charge of security in Rio de Janeiro earlier in 2018 said the operation involved 1800 troops and 50 police officers Their goal was to remove roadblocks put up by gangs and to "check up on reports of criminal activity and other illicit conduct" it said in a statement on Friday The operation caused large rush-hour traffic jams in the busy seaside area but there was no sign of shooting incidents However similar raids frequently result in high body counts including among unarmed bystanders On Wednesday in a separate operation conducted in the sprawling network of favelas known as the Mare police backed by armoured vehicles clashed with drug traffickers Six people carrying weapons ammunition and drugs were killed according to the G1 news site A 14-year-old schoolboy who was hit by a stray bullet died of his wound later that night "The boy was late and was going to school when he was shot" municipal schools official Fatima Barros said on Globo television Some media reports said that the boy was fired upon from a helicopter that had been flying low over the favela but late Thursday the teen's mother said her son had told her he was shot from an armoured vehicle The mother Bruna Silva was quoted by the state-run Agencia Brasil saying that her son might have survived if police had allowed an ambulance to reach him earlier "The ambulance took an hour It couldn't enter The police told it to turn around" she was quoted as saying "My son was lucid he was well But when the ambulance arrived he was already red going pale and cold" Brazil's second biggest city which hosted the Olympics in 2016 is suffering from a cocktail of surging violent crime and financial disarray The NGO Rio de Paz said that another 14-year-old was killed by a stray bullet in a separate favela in the last 24 hours It was not clear what the circumstances of the shooting were According to the NGO which works closely with victims throughout the favelas there have been eight children killed by stray bullets in Rio so far in 2018 A startling number of Australian citizens and residents have left the country to join jihadist factions in the ongoing crises in the Middle East prompting the Australian government to launch a statewide effort to crack down on "home-grown terrorism" fostered within its borders "This is one of the most disturbing developments in our domestic security in quite some time" Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop told the Australian Broadcasting Service "There’s a real danger that these extremists also come back home as trained terrorists and pose a threat to our security" Authorities believe that around 150 Australians are currently fighting alongside ISIS in Iraq and Syria making the country the highest foreign per capita contributor to the violence Many more have left the country for the Middle East in recent weeks though their intent in doing so has not yet been determined “We will do everything we humanly can to stop jihadist terrorists coming into this country and if they do return to this country we will do everything we reasonably can to ensure that they are not moving amongst the Australian community" Prime Minister Tony Abbott told the Australian press on Monday Abbotts government has thus far canceled a number of passports held by those Australians who have joined the conflict and is working to fortify a border security system that has a history of being more permeable than desired It was a “customs failure” last year that permitted convicted terrorist Khaled Sharrouf to escape the country with his brother’s passport and head to Syria and then Iraq where he has had a hand in the recent mass executions of Iraqi soldiers As for the suspected or confirmed terrorists still at large within the Australian borders the government has mulled over the idea of providing national intelligence agencies greater access to the country’s internet traffic a potentially controversial move considering the outcry over the governments mobile data surveillance plan in 2012 This is not the first time that Australia has taken note of the extremist diaspora out of the country Last summer TIME reported that over 200 Australians had joined militant groups fighting to unseat Syrian President Bashar Assad in the countrys ongoing civil war and that Australian counterterrorism operatives had consequently begun collecting evidence against suspected combatants Still the exodus persists from Australia and elsewhere: the Economist reported earlier this month that as many as 3000 foreigners may have joined ISIS forces The organization and its satellite groups seem intent on making their chaos an international issue actively soliciting support from Muslims across the world In a 13-minute propagandist recruitment video released last week purported ISIS extremists stated that their fellow jihadists in Iraq and Syria hailed from countries as far afield as Bangladesh and even Cambodia although some Cambodian officials have disputed the claim Contact us at editors@timecomFor an election considered too close to call as Nigerians went to the polls en mass on Saturday morning nothing was more surprising than the fact that for the first time in the countrys post-colonial history an opposition challenger succeeded in pushing out a sitting president via the ballot box That and the fact that for all the dire predictions of doom and violence the final results were accompanied by cheers and groans not gloating and gunshots Some of that just may be attributable to winning candidate Muhammadu Buharis remarkable Twitter feed rife with positive thoughts and cheerful goodwill throughout Winning candidate Muhammadu Buhari who will be sworn in as President on May 29 praised his rival President Goodluck Jonathan for peacefully relinquishing power "President Jonathan was a worthy opponent and I extend the hand of fellowship to him" Buhari told a gathering at his campaign headquarters on Wednesday For his part Jonathan a former Vice-President turned two-time President who many had assumed would never willingly give up power was gracious in his defeat saying in a statement "I promised the country free and fair elections I have kept my word" He went on to encourage his supporters to stay calm and accept the results no matter how disappointed "Nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian The unity stability and progress of our dear country is more important than anything else" While there was no shortage of rancor through out the campaign period at one point Jonathan supporters spread the rumor that a long-planned speaking engagement for Buhari 72 in the United States was in fact an emergency medical consultation for suspected prostate cancer both candidates repeatedly professed a desire for a peaceful election and a mature responsible electorate By and large they got it with minimal damage from protestors and a relatively low death toll of just a few dozen compared to the slaughter of the 2011 election which saw more than 800 die in widespread rioting For most of the run up to the election Buhari supporters and campaign activists hinted at dark conspiracies by Jonathans Peoples Democratic Party to rig the vote prevent Buhari supporters from going to the polls or manipulate the final count But throughout it all Buharis Twitter feed focused on the positive rarely betraying the acrimony splashed across Nigerias partisan papers Buhari came late to Twitter signing on only on the last day of January with the verified handle @ThisIsBuhari compared to early adopter Jonathan Buhari demonstrated few of Jonathans grievous faux pas among them the ill conceived #BringBackJonathan hashtag campaign for re-election a tasteless imitation of the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag slogan to recover the 257
