The next wave of disruption: Emerging market media use of artificial intelligence and machine learningJuly 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.
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 StatesJanuary 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.
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.
Women make up 17.5% of the U.S. military and they perform vital roles; however, they are 28% more likely to leave the Armed Forces than their male counterparts. Given that it's critical to retain women in their valuable positions, the lack of comprehensive and inclusive healthcare across the military branches is both a readiness and retention issue.In an effort to improve retention of servicewomen by helping fix a significant root cause — worse health outcomes — HealthyWomen designed, implemented, and evaluated a health education program, Ready, Healthy & Able (RHA), to provide: 1) health education for servicewomen and service members assigned female at birth (AFAB) and 2) accredited medical education for military healthcare providers (HCPs). Phase one of the program comprised more than 75 pieces of educational content in multiple mediums for service members and 11 virtual continuing education (CE) modules, two in-person lectures, and one live-streamed webinar for military HCPs. Pre- and post-test survey data results showed an increase in knowledge and/or confidence among the majority of consumers of the RHA educational resources.
From Surviving to Thriving: A Quality-of-Life Study with Transgender, Gender Nonconforming, and Intersex (TGI) Adults in the City of Los AngelesNovember 6, 2023
Transgender people in California experience discrimination and harassment in employment, housing, health care, schools, and other public places. More limited research has also documented that intersex people face employment discrimination and have poorer health compared to the general population. This study embraced a quality-of-life framework to gather first-person accounts from 55 transgender, non-binary, and intersex (TGI) adults to better understand the needs of TGI people who live, work, or receive services in the City of Los Angeles. Focus group topics included housing, employment, health care, and access to local services and resources. Overall, we found that while the TGI community continues to face many acute challenges, it has also developed expertise, relationships, and resources that will be critical to addressing these challenges in partnership with the City.
Serving the community as a vibrant agency that has a positive impact on children, youth and families means continually assessing and refining UCAN's programs and operations. Like other non-profits, we know the critical importance of being flexible during and after a pandemic that required establishing and streamlining ways of communicating and engaging with each other and those we serve. In Fiscal Year 2022, that reality was a driving force behind our multi-pronged Strategic Direction that guided our work agencywide.The plan enabled us to revisit and refine our program structure and create three hubs that even more accurately define UCAN's evolution: Foster Care & Transitional Services; Therapeutic & Clinical Services; and Prevention & Empowerment Services. We know, however, that regardless of labels, our dedicated staff remain the change agents and dream facilitators for those who need and rely on UCAN's expertise. We are working with our funders, partners and peers to ensure that these three hubs smartly reflect our plan to further integrate our work that is the foundation of UCAN's Continuum of Care.
Thanks to the dedication of our staff, the commitment of our Board of Governors, and your continued support, 2022 was another pivotal and impactful year. The Joint Center conducted critical research, provided in-depth analysis, shared policy recommendations, and convened with lawmakers, policy experts, and other stakeholders to advance Black Americans' political and economic needs. Our clear and intentional focus on the needs and concerns of Black Americans centers Black communities in policy debates, furthering our mission of creating more equitable and just economic and political outcomes for African Americans across the country. We have made great strides in each of our major program areas — Tech Policy, Workforce Policy, Economic Policy, Hill Diversity, and the Black Talent Initiative — which we are excited to share with you in this 2022 impact report.
From local to international policy fronts, EFF's advocacy got results in 2022. In the European Union, we lobbied hard for a Digital Markets Act that recognized the value of interoperability and meaningfully restrained the power of "gatekeeper" platforms. Sustained pressure from EFF, our members, and our allies helped protect free expression online by keeping Congress from mandating filters or link taxes. EFF also was instrumental in Congress passing the Safe Connections Act, a bill that makes it easier for survivors of domestic violence to keep their phone number while leaving a family plan. This simple protection can be essential to stopping abusers from using access to their victims' cellphone plans to track and harass.
