Financial Times tool warns if articles quote too many men

Financial Times tool warns if articles quote too many men --Paper develops bot in attempt to force writers to look to include more expert women in pieces | 14 Nov 2018 | The Financial Times is automatically warning its journalists if their articles quote too many men, in an attempt to force writers to look for expert women to include in their pieces. The media organisation found that only 21% of people quoted in the FT were women, prompting the development of a bot that uses pronouns and analysis of first names to determine whether a source is male or a female. Section editors will then be alerted if they are not doing enough to feature women in their stories. Staff were told that, in future, automatic textual analysis could warn FT journalists about the lack of female voices in an article as it is being typed.

Florida Senate race heads to a hand recount

Florida Senate race heads to a hand recount | 15 Nov 2018 | The Florida Senate race between Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Gov. Rick Scott (R) is heading to a hand recount after the latest round of machine tallies showed the two candidates still neck and neck. Nelson and Scott were separated by a margin of about 0.15 percentage points, according to results of a machine recount released Thursday -- a narrow enough margin to trigger a hand recount under state law. The hand recount must be completed by Sunday, in time for a Nov. 20 deadline for state officials to certify the final election results.

Broward misses machine recount deadline - by 2 minutes

Broward misses machine recount deadline - by 2 minutes | 15 Nov 2018 | A Broward election official said late Thursday that the county had uploaded the results of its recount two minutes after the state's 3 p.m. deadline -- making its machine recount tally void.

In the recount, Scott's Democratic opponent, incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, lost more votes than Scott -- a net gain of 779 for Scott.

In the governor's race, it was an anticlimactic finish to the dramatic machine recount -- plagued with technical issues and an avalanche of lawsuits -- with almost no change in the margin between DeSantis and his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum, since this weekend.

Acosta's actions are stopping our people from getting their questions answered, so that we can give our audience the real news direct from our President," Herring wrote.
