Related Home Facebook reshuffles executive pack Facebook implemented a management shake-up in a move to integrate major acquisitions Instragram and WhatsApp more closely, while also launching a new division focusing on emerging technologies.The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported the reshuffle had been communicated internally and implemented with immediate effect.In one of the most significant shake-ups, chief product officer Chris Cox of the flagship Facebook service will now also be in charge of Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, in what appears to be a move to marry the four services more closely together.The reshuffle doesn’t affect the role of current COO Sheryl Sandberg or CEO Mark Zuckerberg, but more than 12 executives will either change roles or take on additional responsibilities.As part of a division restructure, WSJ said Facebook’s product and engineering unit will be split into three areas, including one focused on emerging technologies such as Blockchain.Blockchain is the foundation for cryptocurrencies and the technology has been touted as useful for a number of other applications including digital identity and online payments.David Marcus, who headed Messenger for four years, will now work on using Blockchain across Facebook.In other major executive shake-ups, two long-time Facebook executives will be placed in key positions at WhatsApp and Instagram. Chris Daniels, who joined the company in 2011, is taking over WhatsApp after co-founder Jan Koum said he was stepping down last week: Adam Mosseri, who runs Facebook news feed and has spent a decade at the company, will move over to Instagram.CTO Mike Schroepfer and VP of growth Javier Olivan will oversee two other consolidated divisions: new platforms and infrastructure; and another for centralised services including Facebook’s advertising system.

Gofundme(COLLETON, S.C.) — Lawyers for the family of Raniya Wright, the fifth-grader who died days after suffering injuries from a classroom fight with another student, said in a statement Friday that relatives were “struggling to make sense of the incident that took her life.”“Raniya’s untimely passing leaves a void in this family that will never be filled. … They are awaiting answers to questions regarding the circumstances surrounding Raniya’s tragic death including was there appropriate supervision in the classroom, and what, if any, steps did school administrators take to intervene in the fight,” lawyers Margie Pizarro and Myesha Brown said in a statement Friday for the family.Raniya, 10, died Wednesday morning after she was involved in what authorities called a physical altercation with another girl Monday at Forest Hills Elementary School in Walterboro, according to the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office.Pizarro and Brown said they would be requesting the complete investigative file and pertinent information from the Colleton County Sheriff’s Department and the Colleton County School District regarding Monday’s incident.Authorities did not release the names of the students because they are younger than 17, but on Wednesday, the Colleton County School District identified the student who died as Raniya.In its news release Wednesday, the district said Raniya was a wonderful student who loved to write, play basketball and spend time with her friends.A staff member at the elementary school called 911 on Monday to report that a student had collapsed, an incident report released by the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office said.When first responders arrived, the student was at the nurse’s station unconscious but breathing, the report said. She was taken to a medical center and later airlifted to the Medical University of South Carolina Childrens’ Health in Charleston, according to the Colleton County School District.In a statement on its website, the district said that after the “fight” occurred in Raniya’s classroom, “school administrators promptly secured the scene, ended the fight and called emergency medical services to the school.”The family said that she’d been unresponsive and in critical condition since the incident, according to ABC News affiliate WCIV-TV.Raniya’s mother, Ashley Wright, shared her grief Wednesday in a public Facebook post, saying, “My baby girl has (gained) her wings.”The family was planning her funeral Thursday.William Bowman, a school board member, told WCIV-TV on Wednesday that the devastating incident had hit the community like a “hurricane.”“We’re gonna have to look into situations, look at the situation, and see if there (are) any avenues that we can take in order to make our schools even safer,” he said. “We’re gonna continue to push, you know, to get funds to apply different safety measures or needed safety measures.”No weapons were involved, said Shalane Lowes, a police information officer for the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office.The district said students, staff and family members were getting guidance and counseling services.The other student involved in the altercation was suspended from school “until the investigation is complete,” the school district said.“Our community has suffered a tremendous loss. We are deeply saddened. … Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with this family in the difficult days ahead,” the district said in a news release. “The district is cooperating fully with law enforcement as this matter is investigated.”Lowes said police were still investigating the incident and that an autopsy for the victim was scheduled for Friday morning.The Colleton County school board held an emergency meeting Thursday about Monday’s incident. Board member Tim Mabry said specific details from the discussion could not be shared because of the investigation and student-privacy laws.Lawyers Pizarro and Brown said the Wright family joined the community in “its calls for transparency and accountability from the school district and all other individuals involved.”“In Raniya’s name, the family is demanding change. Change that addresses the reasons that a child would openly express anxiety about attending school. Change that addresses legitimate fears that a child has while in the school building. Change that addresses bullying and teasing and the collateral damage when those behaviors go unchecked,” said the statement from the family’s lawyers. “The family wishes to thank everyone for the many thoughts, prayers, and expressions of kindness that have been extended to them during this difficult time. They ask for continued prayer in the days ahead.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Share New research provides evidence that heart rate reactivity is a biological moderator between bullying and internalizing problems in adolescent girls.The findings, which appear in Evolutionary Psychological Science, could help explain why peer victimization leads to internalizing problems in some girls but not others.“The theory of Biological Sensitivity to Context is a fascinating one,” said study author Christopher D. Aults, an assistant professor of Psychology at King’s College. Share on Twitter Pinterest Share on Facebook Email LinkedIn The theory holds that the environment in early life predisposes individuals to have varying degrees of reactivity to stress, which can have both beneficial and societally maladaptive outcomes.“Understanding how individual differences contribute to psychological adjustment is an important area of research. Peer victimization is rarely used as a variable of interest in these models, so we wanted to explore if victimization interacted with heightened stress reactivity to predict increases in internalizing problems in adolescents,” Aults said.In the study of 44 girls and 38 boys (11–14 years of age), the researchers monitored the children’s resting heart rate before introducing a laboratory stressor. The difference between the resting heart rate and heart rate in response to the stressor was used as a measure of physiological reactivity.The researchers found that girls whose heart rates were highly reactive tended to be more likely to have internalizing problems, such as depression and anxiety, when subjected to a higher level of bullying. But girls with high reactivity tended to rank lower on internalizing behaviors when subjected to a low levels of bullying.“In essence, they are most apt to thrive when supported by peers, but also most likely to struggle when victimized by peers,” the researchers wrote.Girls with low cardiovascular reactivity, on the other hand, were less impacted by their social environment, whether that environment was positive or negative.“Studying stress reactivity in adolescents who are victimized by their peers may be a good indicator for predicting internalizing problems, particularly for girls,” Aults told PsyPost.For boys, cardiovascular reactivity did not appear to have a moderating influence. And the study — like all research — includes some limitations.“This study was concurrent and correlational. Looking at stress reactivity, or even the severity of victimization over time in a longitudinal fashion, is needed,” Aults said.The study, “Adolescent Girls’ Biological Sensitivity to Context: Heart Rate Reactivity Moderates the Relationship Between Peer Victimization and Internalizing Problems,” was authored by Christopher D. Aults, Karin Machluf, P. Douglas Sellers II, and Nancy Aaron Jones.

Redskins QB Alex Smith undergoes successful surgery; faces 6-8 months of recovery Where to begin?The Rams and Chiefs played a wild, historic “Monday Night Football” showdown that featured far more offensive fireworks than expected. That’s saying a lot, considering the over/under for this game closed at 64, the highest for any NFL game since at least 1986. NFL will return to Mexico City in 2019 Here are three thoughts on one of the most unbelievable, crazy NFL games ever played.Rams defense proved to be the difference … and could do the same in the Super BowlThe Rams’ defense yielded a ridiculous 546 total yards to the Chiefs and gave up 478 passing yards and six touchdowns to quarterback Patrick Mahomes. But they also were the key in winning the game, providing several big plays.And the unheralded Ebukam, a fourth-round pick a year ago, made several of those plays. He scored on a fumble return in the second quarter, and then ran in a pick-six in the third quarter.Samson Ebukam’s two touchdowns are the biggest plays of the game.As we all predicted.pic.twitter.com/aDGBKrLMhR— Sporting News (@sportingnews) November 20, 2018Then, with less than two minutes remaining, Ebukam rushed Mahomes and hit him as he released the ball, leading to an interception.The Chiefs ran wild most of the night, with receiver Tyreek Hill catching 10 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns, one that found him inexplicably wide open downfield for a 73-yard score. The @Cheetah is left WIDE OPEN and @PatrickMahomes5 launches it for the 73-yard TD! #ChiefsKingdom📺: #KCvsLAR on ESPN pic.twitter.com/CAVnnNwa3K— NFL (@NFL) November 20, 2018But the Rams D forced just enough mistakes from Kansas City, including three interceptions and two fumbles from Mahomes, to make the difference. And if, as many are predicting, these two teams meet in the Super Bowl, guys like Aaron Donald and the rest of the Rams defense could be the difference in that meeting, too.Chiefs must work on reducing penaltiesKansas City had an astounding 13 penalties for 135 yards against the Rams. They were already the most penalized team in the league coming into the game, averaging 8.4 penalties per game (the Steelers are second at 7.8). It might be easy to overcome that lack of discipline during the regular season, but things get tougher in the postseason, and penalties can become magnified.Perhaps Monday night’s flag fiesta versus the Rams will serve as a wake-up call, allowing Andy Reid to address the issue. It’s worth pointing out the Rams are at the other end of the spectrum, ranking third in the league in fewest penalties at 5.5 per game.Paging Todd Gurley … paging Todd GurleyIn one of the highest scoring games in NFL history, Todd Gurley, arguably the league’s most prolific running back, touched the ball only 15 times for 94 yards (55 rushing, 39 receiving).It’s curious Gurley wasn’t more involved in the offense. Then again, Goff was completing passes 15 to 20 yards — and longer — downfield at will, finishing 31-of-49 passing for 413 yards and four touchdowns. Immediately after the game ESPN asked Goff for his thoughts on the high-scoring affair.”Unbelievable … unbelievable,” Goff said.It’s hard to fault Rams coach Sean McVay for not using Gurley more, given the outcome. After all, the Rams won. When you have as many weapons as the Rams, including an unheralded linebacker named Samson Ebukam (12 points), Gurley could afford to be an onlooker in the offensive explosion that erupted Monday night in LA. In the end, the Rams outscored the Chiefs, 54-51, in a highly entertaining affair that is the third-highest scoring NFL game in history.Among the night’s big scorers was Rams linebacker Samson Ebukam, who scored two touchdowns, one on a fumble return, the other on a pick-six. And he later made a crucial play late in the game. Related News
