ND Mobile Web Arrives

first_imgNotre Dame’s Office of Information Technologies (OIT), in collaboration with its Office of Public Affairs and Communications (OPAC), recently released ND Mobile Web to provide mobile device users with useful information about Notre Dame resources.The Web site, m.nd.edu, is accessible to a global audience and connects users with a wide selection of Notre Dame resources, such as news, athletics, emergency campus information, OIT alerts and student, faculty and staff directories.The mobile Web site was launched to meet the growing popularity of smart phones.“Everyone on campus seems to have mobile phones and we were looking for a way to provide the mobile experience to them,” said Chas Grundy, OPAC’s director of interactive marketing. “ND Mobile Web on your phone is a great way to find a number, check out a computer lab, or grab ND news and sports scores.”According to a recent University press release, this mobile platform was developed through a close collaboration between OIT and OPAC.“The world of communications and technology is intrinsically linked and our partnership is key to delivering new tools to campus to help our Notre Dame family stay educated, engaged and connected,” said Todd Woodward, associate vice president for marketing communications.One of the features of ND Mobile Web is its “Find an Open Lab” resource. A student interested in seeing whether a particular computer lab is busy can choose this feature and be provided with the real-time number of available computers.“The new mobile culture emphasizes real-time answers to your most pressing questions,” Grundy said in the press release. “It empowers you right now because of where you are and what you are doing.”Other resources available on ND Mobile Web include ND on YouTube, which allows users to browse videos on Notre Dame’s YouTube channel, and NDPrayerCast, which delivers spiritual content such as information about Basilica masses and campus ministry.Students are enthusiastic about this new site and the opportunity to get immediate answers to questions and concerns.“I really like the ‘Find an Open Lab’ feature,” freshman Joe Mackel said. “It keeps you from wasting time waiting in line for a computer.”Junior Tim Purcell also likes the convenience and real-time features of the Mobile Web.“Now I can save time and check scores when I’m standing in line at Starbucks,” he said. “Maybe in the future they can even put The Observer on Mobile.”Such an idea may be a reality in the future for the resources of the Mobile Web are expected to grow rapidly.“We are continuing to develop ND Mobile Web,” Grundy said. “In the future, we hope to add more features such as an online map, calendars, tools, events and more.”last_img read more

Twitter again slaps warning on Trump tweet threatening force against protesters

first_imgTwitter Inc on Tuesday placed a warning notice on a tweet by President Donald Trump threatening “serious force” against protesters in the US capital, the second time it has used the label since it began challenging Trump’s tweets in May.”There will never be an ‘Autonomous Zone’ in Washington, DC, as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!” the president said in his tweet, which Twitter said violated its policy against abusive behavior. At least 150,000 people had liked Trump’s tweet and 33,000 retweeted it before Twitter restricted engagement, according to the most recent image captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. His post on Facebook received 12,000 comments.The warning escalated Twitter’s challenge to Trump, who has used the platform unimpeded for years to rally supporters and deride opponents.After the company last month started applying labels to his messages, Trump announced plans to scrap or weaken a law that has protected internet companies in order to regulate social media platforms more aggressively.Twitter’s first public interest notice against Trump also involved a threat of force against protesters, who have been demonstrating against racial injustice since the May 25 death of George Floyd, a Black man, in police custody.Trump had used the phrase “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” to threaten deadly force against protesters in Minneapolis, where Floyd died.Twitter said that message violated its rules against “glorifying violence.” It has also appended fact-checking and manipulated media labels to Trump’s tweets in the last month.  Topics : Police cleared the White House area on Tuesday and blocked access to the site, where law enforcement had used violence to disperse protesters earlier this month.Twitter said it hid Trump’s tweet behind its “public interest” notice because it included a threat of harm against an identifiable group. The label restricts distribution of tweets by public officials which violate Twitter’s rules, while leaving them online to allow for scrutiny.A Twitter spokeswoman said teams within the company’s safety division informed Chief Executive Jack Dorsey of the decision before applying the notice.Facebook, which has taken a more hands-off approach to speech by political leaders, left the same post untouched. Trump posted the message after anti-racism protesters on Monday declared a “Black House Autonomous Zone” – referencing a Seattle area taken over by activists known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone – in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House.last_img read more
