  • Katie Price fined for jumping red light

    Katie Price has been given three points on her driving licence and ordered to pay £1,220 after she pleaded guilty to jumping a red light. Ex-Celebrity Big Brother contestant Katie pleaded not guilty in April to driving through a red light and failing to give information to the police. Before a trial at Horsham Magistrates’ Court, she changed her plea to guilty to the traffic light charge, while prosecutors offered no evidence to failing to provide information. Katie, dressed in colourful patterned trousers and a white jacket, turned up at court with her husband Kieran Hayler who sat at the back of the courtroom.

  • America at Large: The battle against ignorance to banish Confederate flag

    Steve Spurrier is one of the most respected figures in college gridiron. In the half a century since he was the best student quarterback in the country, his achievements on the sidelines at the Universities of Florida and South Carolina have earned him the simple, telling moniker of “the ole ball coach”. Eight years ago, at an awards ceremony where he was being recognised for his philanthropy, he ventured an opinion about a hot-button issue in the American South. “I realise I’m not supposed to get in the political arena as a football coach, but if anybody were ever to ask me about that damn Confederate flag, I would say we need to get rid of it,” said Spurrier.

  • Robin Thicke blames marriage breakdown for losing Blurred Lines copyright case

    Robin Thicke is blaming the break-up of his marriage as the reason he and Pharrell lost the Blurred Lines plagiarism lawsuit. The singer revealed in his first interview since the case was lost in March that a deposition took a backseat to his crumbling marriage. Robin split from his childhood sweetheart, actress Paula Patton, in 2014 and their divorce was finalised in March this year, at the same time as the legal dispute with Marvin Gaye’s children, who claimed the number one hit was a copy of the soul singer’s Got to Give It Up. Robin told The New York Times: “What I will — what I can say — is that when I did the deposition, it was two weeks after my separation from my wife. q
  • Google apologises for racist auto-tagging

    Google has been apologising profusely after it has emerged that an auto-tagging feature of its Photos app that is able to guess what it is looking at wrongly concluded that two black people were ‘gorillas’. The company has been developing a program based on machine learning for its Photos app to make auto-tagging quicker uploading to social media, but now it appears that the addition of an automatically-created tag ‘gorillas’ has backfired rather spectacularly. According to the Wall Street Journal, Google have taken the decision of removing the tag completely from its basic form of artificial intelligence (AI) and has apologised to the person who highlighted the error on Twitter. Jacky Alciné, the person whose photos were wrongfully tagged, went on to say it was specifically targeting one of his friends and has questioned what exactly they are basing their machine learning system on.
