Sri Lankan govenment reworking MoU on Hambantota airport deal with India 5.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
 The Sri Lankan government is reworking on the draft of a memorandum of understanding to hand over the management of Mattala Rajapaksha International Airport at Hambantota to an Indian airport operator, according to a media report today. Built with high interest commercial loans from China by the Mahinda Rajapaksha government, the MRIA is dubbed as the "world's emptiest airport" due to lack of flights. It was officially opened in March 2013 and the only international flight operating from there was halted in May.

The government had last month asked the Indian airport operator to submit its business plan for operating the loss-making airport.

'New computer model predicts when online conversations turn sour' 26.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Scientists have developed a computer model that can predict when civil conversations on the internet might take a turn and degenerate into personal attacks. The researchers from Cornell University in the US hope this model can be used to rescue at-risk conversations and improve online dialogue, rather than for banning specific users or censoring certain topics. After analysing hundreds of exchanges between Wikipedia editors, they developed the computer programme that scans for warning signs in the language used by participants at the start of a conversation. The programme looks for signs such as repeated, direct questioning or use of the word "you" to predict which initially civil conversations would go awry. Early exchanges that included greetings, expressions of gratitude, hedges such as "it seems," and the words "I" and "we" were more likely to remain civil, the study found. "There are millions of such discussions taking place every day, and you can't possibly monitor all of them live. A system based ...
