Local NewsBusiness Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Facebook WhatsApp WhatsApp Pinterest TURIN, Italy–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– The transformation of our cities into smart cities is becoming more real everyday thanks to 5G technology. Creating and optimizing 5G network distribution with an algorithm is the goal of the fourth edition of Reply Code Challenge 2021, the team based competition organized by Reply to introduce new generations of talent to digital and coding culture. The competition, open to coders from all over the world, will take place online on Thursday, March 11, 2021. There are two challenges that are taking place at the same time: the Standard Edition, aimed at university students and professionals, and the Teen Edition, open to young people between 14 and 19 years old. Standard Edition participants will be asked to create a new network infrastructure in a city characterized by particular environmental constraints. Through coding they will have to elaborate the most optimal collocation of the 5G antennas for the surrounding urban context. Younger Teen Edition participants, on the other hand, will be challenged with logic and math problems. The teen edition is now enriched with the Train&Win program. The platform will become a real life coding gym, with exercises and study materials made available to help prepare for the international competition on March 11 th. Starting from February 8 th, teachers and students will be able to train together with problems to solve on the challenges.reply.com platform and win Reply gadgets for educational purposes. There will be no limits during the pursuit of victory: teams will be able to submit all the solutions they can come up with during the competition timeframe, making use of any programming language, including C++ and Python. The podium will be determined by the algorithms that obtain the best score during the tests. In last year’s competition, more than 20,000 coders from 96 different countries took part in both editions of the challenge, solving logic and algorithm problems. With the Code Challenge, Reply begins the 2021 Reply Challenges calendar: also featuring the Sustainability Investment Challenge in April, designed to introduce students to financial investments with attention to sustainability evaluation, the Creative Challenge in May, the biggest challenge in Europe for young creatives, organized in collaboration with major international brands, and the Cyber Security Challenge in October, focused on the search for specific vulnerabilities hidden within software and computer systems. Reply Challenges showcase Reply’s commitment to the development of innovative educational models, capable of engaging new generations by using their own language, broken down within gaming dynamics. Since the launch of the program in 2018, more than 80,000 players have taken part in the challenges organized by Reply for young students, talents and technology enthusiasts with the aim of promoting the culture of coding and stimulating digital innovation in the fields of creativity, cybersecurity and finance.

‘Taking some sort of pleasure’ Trump’s national security advisor, Robert O’Brien, criticized Chinese officials for “taking some sort of pleasure and solace in what they’re seeing here.”Americans seeking redress are “not going to be thrown in jail for peaceful protesting. There’s a difference between us and you,” he told ABC News.Many demonstrations have been peaceful but activists have accused police of using excessive force in a number of incidents and a man was killed early Monday in Louisville, Kentucky.O’Brien also singled out Zimbabwe among “our foreign adversaries” that may be relishing the scenes in the United States.Zimbabwe — which has faced US criticism over violently dispersing protests as well as British-led pressure over its seizures of white-owned farms — summoned the US ambassador to protest O’Brien’s remarks. Topics : Diverting attention? Observers say that China and Iran are hardly sterling examples on rights.Activists say China is detaining at least one million Uighurs and other Turkic Muslims in a vast network of brainwashing camps.In the commercial hub of Guangzhou, African residents said that police forcibly evicted them this year from accommodation and that they were refused service at shops and restaurants as part of a coronavirus scare.In Iran, a lawmaker on Monday acknowledged that 230 people died in last year’s protests triggered by a fuel price hike, although outside groups say the number was far higher.”Like every country, America has never been perfect when it comes to human rights. Far from it,” said Rob Berschinski, senior vice president for policy at Human Rights First.”But the fact that a human rights advocate like me can say this openly is what differentiates the United States and other free countries from countries like China and Iran,” he said.”When the Chinese and Iranian governments criticize demonstrations in America, they’re doing so to distract from their own records, not because they care about racial injustice.”Berschinski, who served at the State Department under president Barack Obama, said nonetheless that Trump hurt the cause, including by calling on Twitter for the shooting of looters.”When American citizens are brutalized by our police and national leaders like President Trump promote violence, of course America’s ability to speak credibly on human rights abroad is harmed,” he said. “And to the American officials and police: stop violence against your people and let them breathe,” he said.Both Iran and China also took to social media to troll the United States, with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeting a State Department condemnation of Iran in which he flipped the names of the two countries. With US cities in flames over outrage about police brutality, nations that are usually on the receiving end of Washington’s criticism on human rights are gleefully turning the tables.Condemnation of the US record on race came from China, which days earlier faced US counter-measures for tightening controls on Hong Kong, as well as Iran, where officials have been slapped with US sanctions for suppressing protests in November.The United States is experiencing some of its worst riots in 50 years with dozens of cities under curfews following the killing in Minneapolis of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man who pleaded “I can’t breathe” as a white police officer pinned him under his knee for nearly nine minutes. “Racism against ethnic minorities in the US is a chronic disease of American society,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said.”The current situation reflects once more the severity of the problems of racism and police violence in the US,” he told reporters in Beijing.Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi echoed the language frequently voiced by President Donald Trump’s administration in its support for opponents of the clerical state.”To the American people: the world has heard your outcry over the state of oppression. The world is standing with you,” Mousavi said, in English, in Tehran. Gentle criticism from friends Solidarity protests have taken place in US friends including Britain, Ireland and New Zealand. Allied governments have spoken in general terms about US police brutality, without criticizing Trump.A spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the violence “very alarming” and voiced concern over the arrests of journalists, including at least one British national.A spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that US police should show restraint “as in any other country in the world” and that police worldwide need human rights training.Trump, who advocates a go-it-alone “America First” approach, has long brushed aside foreign critiques.But in a leaked tape of a meeting Monday with governors, he complained that “the whole world was laughing” — because police did not respond forcefully enough.
