Discord Slack for gamers tops 250 million registered users

first_img Share your voice Culture Gaming 0 Post a commentcenter_img Many gamers these days like to play online with friends. Discord helps them do that. Getty Images You may never have heard of Discord, but you might soon. The chat app built initially for gamers has been steadily expanding outside that world as it’s increasingly used by YouTube personalities, podcasters, hackers and more. Overall, the company says it counts more than 250 million registered users, or basically the same number of people who’ve signed up to play the cultural phenom Fortnight. More than 56 million people log in each month on the app, which marks its fourth anniversary Monday. “As Discord has grown, it’s gone mainstream,” the company said in a statement. direct-message-screenDiscord is praised for its sleek design, similar to business chat software Slack. Discord While it’s true the 165-person company has become popular outside of gaming, its most popular “servers” (or, chat rooms) are typically gaming related. The top server is for Fortnite, followed by a similar battle game Spellbreak, then Fortnite competitor PUBG. Microsoft’s world building game Minecraft, Supercell’s strategy game Clash Royale and Ubisoft’s Rainbow 6 military survival game are also popular. Its good-natured gaming roots and slick design have made it popular among gamers looking to easily chat with friends or organize a gaming session from across town or on another side of the world. It’s often called “Slack for gamers,” a reference to the similarly designed business software that’s expected to hold an initial public offering this year. But Discord has a darker side. White supremacists and hackers have gravitated to the platform, in part because of its ease of use and insufficient bureaucracy to track and punish them. That’s different from companies like Facebook and Twitter, which have employee bases many times larger than Discord’s and have taken a harder line, even using computer programs to identify and then excise bad actors from their communities.  Still, San Francisco-based Discord is pushing forward. It’s launched a game sales service to compete with the likes of Fortnite maker Epic and Valve’s popular “Steam” store. The company declined to say how many games it’s sold through that effort.  Tagslast_img read more

ACC launches investigation against 8 BNP leaders

first_img(Top) Nazrul Islam Khan, Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Abdul Awal Mintoo and Morshed Khan. (Bottom) Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury, Mirza Abbas, Habibun-nabi Khan Sohel and Tabith Awal The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has now launched investigation into allegations of money laundering, amassing illegal wealth and suspicious bank transactions against eight BNP leaders.The anti-corruption watchdog has launched the investigation barely two months after a court sent the chief of country’s main opposition political party, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), and former prime minister Khaleda Zia to jail in a graft case filed by the ACC.Another case filed by ACC is pending against her. Besides, some 25 BNP leaders are facing graft cases filed by ACC. The BNP leaders against whom the ACC launched the investigation are: standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Nazrul Islam Khan, Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury and Mirza Abbas, two vice chairmen Abdul Awal Mintoo and M Morshed Khan, joint secretary general and BNP’s Dhaka city’s south unit president Habibun-nabi Khan Sohel and Mintoo’s son and executive committee member Tabith Awal.ACC has also initiated investigation against Morshed Khan’s son Faisal Morshed Khan.ACC officials said the body entrusted one of its deputy directors, Shamsul Alam, with the investigation against the BNP.They said the ACC would send letters to banks concerned by this week, seeking information about the respective persons and would also ask the BNP leaders to submit their wealth statements.ACC officials said the organisation has launched the investigation after some media outlets, quoting intelligence sources, published news reports that “suspicious transactions” of as much as Tk 1.25 billon was made in 30 days’ time in the bank accounts of these BNP leaders.They said most of those whose bank account records show “unusual money withdrawal” are businessmen and the volume of transactions is not unusual either, but the withdrawal was made in cash which, ACC officials said, has created suspicions.The ACC would check if the money was spent other than on business purposes.ACC officials said allegations have it that Abdul Awal Mintoo withdrew some Tk 320 million on 11, 15 and 22 February and his son Tabith Awal withdrew some Tk 200 million in the same month.Morshed Khan withdrew Tk 180 million on 27 February while his son Faisal withdrew Tk 90 million on 26 February.It is alleged that some Tk 210 million was withdrawn from the bank account of Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain from 3 to 12 March and some of the money was withdrawn from outside Dhaka.  ACC is also claiming that some Tk 160 million was withdrawn from the account of Mirza Abbas on 28 February and 4 March.It is also being alleged that Tk 70 million was withdrawn from the bank accounts of Nazrul Islam Khan and Habibun-nabi Khan Sohel at different times.BNP has all along been accusing the Anti-Corruption Commission of serving the interests of the ruling quarters.At a press conference on 21 March, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi alleged that ACC is like a one-eyed animal.    BNP standing committee member Khandakar Mosharraf Hossain said, “The ACC has launched this investigation based on the reports published in some baseless online portals. How authentic are those reports? Neither me nor my family members have any account with that bank.”Terming the move purely political, he lamented that the ACC has chosen to turn a blind eye to people who have misappropriated millions, especially when the ministries and the Bangladesh Bank have proofs.Senior leader Nazrul Islam Khan said, “This is just another blueprint of the government to keep the active BNP leaders under pressure. The country knows why the ACC is after us when people who have institutionalised corruption are at large.””Such news was published on online portal Bangla Insider on 17 March. Everyone knows who are behind it. The ACC will now carry out an investigation based on that report. The involvement of constitutional bodies in such politicised acts is tarnishing their image, and that of the country as well,” said BNP vice chairman Abdul Awal Mintoo.No ACC official was available for a comment to this end. ACC spokesperson and secretary Shamsul Arefin’s phone did not receive a call despite repeated attempts. He did not reply to a text either.Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) executive director Iftekharuzzaman said, “We hope the ACC will carry out their duties within their legal framework. If they prioritise political identity it will be a blow to their accountability.”last_img read more

Rule Changes Would End Remnants Of Electric Bill Assistance For LowIncome Texans

first_img Listen Share 00:00 /00:45 State regulators could move this week to get rid of rules designed to help low-income Texans with their electric bills. Under a proposal being considered by the Public Utility Commission of Texas on Thursday, electric companies would no longer have to give low-income customers a break on late fees, and they wouldn’t have to make special payment plans available for those customers.Carol Biedrzycki, with the advocacy group Texas Ratepayers’ Organization to Save Energy – or “ROSE” – worries about that.“Those things can very well make it more difficult for people to maintain utility service,” she said.A now-defunct state program used to directly help low-income families pay electric bills. The utility commission said these changes are essentially meant to fully wind down that program, as state lawmakers intended, and to remove references to it in the rules. The commission notes the changes would also create a new requirement that companies let all customers split up their deposits for new electric plans.Commissioners could vote on the proposal at a Thursday meeting, or ask for more information before considering it on a later date.

Baltimore City Solicitor Andre Davis Disputes Objections over Political Signs in Baltimore

first_imgBALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore’s top lawyer is pushing back on a neighborhood’s attempt to invoke city law to remove signs posted by residents welcoming immigrants and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.Baltimore City Solicitor Andre Davis (Courtesy Photo)The Baltimore Sun reported Monday the Roland Park Civic League told residents in its community association newsletter that “sign clutter” was a nuisance to neighbors and violated the Baltimore City Zoning Code.City Solicitor Andre Davis says that interpretation of city law is wrong, and the signs are protected by the First Amendment.Baltimore zoning law prohibits portable signs, and calls for the “prompt removal” of temporary signs after the event or campaign with which they’re associated, but these signs aren’t tied to specific events.Civic League President Hal Cooper says the intent was to address the signs’ appearance, not message.___Information from: The Baltimore Sun, http://www.baltimoresun.comlast_img read more
