The next wave of disruption: Emerging market media use of artificial intelligence and machine learning

July 19, 2021

In frontier and emerging media markets across the globe, there are many new opportunities in newsrooms to innovate through artificial intelligence, machine learning and data processing. In this report, IMS, The Fix and the Latin American Centre for Investigative Journalism (The CLIP) have drawn the lens to fast-rising developmental changes capable of driving digital transformation in business and journalism by understanding how those newsrooms can use technology to develop a data and user-led approach to newsgathering, content, distribution, marketing and sales, and post-sale services.

6th Global Media Monitoring Project

July 13, 2021

The emergence and rapid proliferation of Covid-19 made the 2020 implementation of the Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) the most extraordinary since the initiative's inception in 1995. Yet, despite the pandemic, the number of participating countries, media and stories monitored was the highest ever. GMMP 2020 was implemented in 116 countries and covered 30,172 stories published in newspapers, broadcast on radio and television, and disseminated on news websites and via news media tweets. Twenty-five percent of stories in the sample carried a coronavirus sub- or principal theme. A tweak in the methodology still made it possible to analyze the stories along the classic GMMP major topic categories of politics & government, economy, science & health, social & legal, crime & violence and celebrity/media/arts & sports. The GMMP 2020 topics' structure carved out a seventh major topic "gender & related", in which to cluster stories specific to sexual harassment, rape, #MeToo and similar gender-specific stories.

Closing the "Gap" Between Competency and Commitment in Minnesota: Ideas from National Standards and Practices in Other States

January 9, 2018

In Minnesota, a "gap" exists in the justice system for defendants with mental illness. Defendants in criminal cases are found incompetent to stand trial, yet do not meet the higher standard for civil commitment. Commitment is the only way to receive competency restoration treatment, so individuals who do not meet the standard are unable to resolve their criminal cases or to receive treatment. The Robina Institute conducted research see how other states address incompetency.

2016 Great Apes Evaluation Report

August 1, 2017

The overall goal of the Arcus Great Ape Program (GAP) is to achieve conservation and respect for great apes and gibbons. The foundation tracks and assesses the progress and effects of the Great Ape Program through a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system that enables it to gather and analyze data from a variety of sources—grantees, conservationists in the field and in academic research settings, and relevant databases—to measure progress along specific indicators and milestones to assess the status of goals, outcomes, and targets. The 2016 Monitoring and Evaluation report presents the program's progress against baselines set in 2010;highlights important issues that will inform and shape broader strategy of GAP; and provides a indication of impact since the previous 2013 evaluation and 2010 baselines.

The State of Legal Abortion: States Poised to Ban Abortion If Roe Falls

January 17, 2022

This brief outlines the potential effects of the US Supreme Court's ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a case that directly challenges Roe v. Wade. Specifically, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, 28 states would likely take action to prohibit abortion outright. Of those, 12 states already have "trigger bans" in place, which would ban abortion automatically.

Medication Abortion Care

January 17, 2022

For over 20 years, medication abortion care has been a safe and effective U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved option for ending an early pregnancy. The medication abortion regimen involves two medications: mifepristone and, after, misoprostol. Although proven to be safe and effective, outdated and unnecessary restrictions at the federal level and politically motivated restrictions at the state level have blocked access to care.In December 2021, the FDA lifted the medically unnecessary in-person dispensing requirement for mifepristone–meaning federal restrictions will no longer force people to travel to a hospital, clinic, or medical office to access medication abortion care. However, other outdated restrictions on medication abortion care remain in place at the federal level. Additionally, the onslaught of state-level attacks on abortion care included many targeted efforts to undermine access to medication abortion care.

Abortion Onscreen in 2021

December 14, 2021

Abortion Onscreen is a research program aimed at investigating stories of abortion on film and television and their effect on the broader social understanding of abortion. Researchers watch each television plotline and analyze each for abortion safety, the demographics of characters who seek abortions, type of abortion, reasons for obtaining abortions, and how difficult or easy the procedure is to access—comparing these trends to prior years' depictions.Depictions of abortion restrictions remain largely absent on television, a particularly egregious omission considering that the majority of patients face at least one logistical or financial obstacle to care. However, there were more depictions of how to support someone before, during, and after an abortion. Many of the portrayals onscreen offer a tangible way for viewers to consider what they would want the experience to be like for a loved one.

Abortion Policy in the Absence of Roe

December 1, 2021

Changes to the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018 raise the possibility that Roe v. Wade could be severely undermined—or even overturned—essentially leaving the legality of abortion to individual states. A reversal of Roe could establish a legal path for states' pre-1973 abortion bans, as well as currently unenforced post-1973 bans, to take effect.
