The concept of fact-checking came to new media from traditional journalism. More precisely, from the principles of the editorial office: an editorial filter is a necessary condition in the technology of a journalist's work. This technology is due to ethical principles: independence, objectivity, impartiality, accuracy. Due to the observance of these principles, the trust of the audience appears and the reputation of the publication is formed.

 

A fact is an event supported by reliable evidence. Different people may have different views on the same event, but you can't argue with the facts. That is why the fact should not only be established, but verified, rechecked and “cast in granite”.

 

Therefore, distortion of facts is a crime against objectivity and accuracy. Worse if it is a deliberate crime against independence and impartiality. It’s very bad when it’s a deliberate manipulative construct.

 

In modern digital communications, the concept of "factoid" is becoming more and more relevant. This is an initially non-existent fact, which, being published in the media, receives a lively reaction and assessment. And they, in turn, affect the picture of the world and the actions of people. The truth is not that important, in fact, if the effect is real.

 

Bemorepanda has prepared some interesting facts about everything in the world. WTF Facts is one of the most famous Twitter pages, here you will find a lot of interesting facts that will amaze you. Bemorepanda is at your disposal so that every day the most interesting things reach the screens of your devices.

 

Top 100 interesting things from WTF Facts

 

1.A speeding ticket in Finland

 

2.Free people in Mexico

 

3.Winning lottery

 

In Russia there is a famous story. This is very reminiscent of the episode of the cartoon about kolobok investigators, where the evil animal dealer Karbofos buys a porcelain elephant from a junk dealer, gets a certificate on him, breaks the now unnecessary trinket and says: "The elephant is bad, the certificate is good!" After that, according to this certificate, he leads a live elephant across the border. The rustic border guard stupidly looks at the certificate, correlates what is written in it with what he sees, and lets the animal across the border.

 

Likewise, people for the most part, following automatisms and stereotypes, trust the form, not critically perceiving the essence. There is a help - come through. On TV they said - it means the truth. Journalists won't lie! Even if the host of a popular talk show is in the frame, and not a journalist in the full sense of the word.

 

In the same way, various phenomena and events are actualized and legalized. Unconsciously or prudently, they are embedded in the form of "confirmed" facts in the information picture, as a result, distorting the entire canvas. This technique is actively used by propagandists, cyber fighters, network trolls and other manipulators of all stripes.

 

4.Support dogs in Zoo

 

5.Golden Arm

 

The fact checker's main weapon is doubt. Professional mistrust, reality check. Here, the logic and toolkit of fact-checking largely coincides with the methodologies and technologies of scientific work. Moreover, a course on source study specialized for historians can raise the level of quality of a journalist's work with sources by an order of magnitude. Be it living interlocutors or material carriers of natural and artificial origin.

 

Newspaper ducks, gossip, rumors, speculation, factoids, manipulations, irresponsible and malicious fakes, technical errors and typos - all this scum is opposed by fact-checking. This is a powerful weapon, which, alas, is often not well known to those who work in the field of mass communications.

15-unique-photofacts-about-everything-in-the-world-that-you-should-learn-to-broaden-your-horizons

Sometimes you can learn a lot of useful things from the Internet by simply leafing through pictures.  In this post Bemorepanda collected different facts about everything that will help broaden our horizons, as well as distract for a couple of minutes from the routine. 


 1. In 2016, a Chinese businessman Xiong Shuihua demolished all the houses in his native village and built villas in their place.  

2. You would be confused to see such a door in your entrance for the first time.  This is just a drawing with an optical illusion. 

3. The Varani people live in Ecuador.  After lengthy litigation, they won a case against an oil company claiming their land.  In the photo, members of the Amazon tribe in the courtroom.

4. In 2015, Ford installed wide-angle front and rear 1-megapixel cameras on its cars that allow "seeing from around the corner."  The problem of "blind" zones has been solved.

5. Animal rights advocates have figured out how to protect elephants from poachers: they painted the animal tusks with pink paint, which is marked with banknotes in banks.  It does not harm the animal, but it is impossible to wash it off.  Buyers do not need such tusks. 

6. Does it look edible?  In fact, in the photo there is not grapes, but a mineral called "grape chalcedony".

50-world-snooker-championship-interesting-and-fun-facts-in-2022-to-mark-the-beging-of-the-most-prestigious-and-wealthiest-tournament

The World Snooker Championship is the premier professional ranking tournament in snooker.


Since the 1973/74 season, it has been included in the list of rating competitions. The championship is currently held at the Crucible Theater in Sheffield, England. This tournament is the most important in terms of prestige, ranking points and prize money, and takes place annually at the end of the season.


The format of the World Cup in the early stages of its development (1920-1960) was unstable and changed almost every time. Basically, snooker players played long, sometimes multi-day matches. The peak of such "marathon" draws came in the 1950s, when the finals were played to at least 50 wins. 1952 was a record year for this indicator - then Horace Lindrum and Clark McConaughey played a match of 143 frames.


Lindrum won that final with a score of 94:49 (for comparison, championship finals are now played up to 18 wins). However, in the 1970s, the WPBSA (snooker's new governing body) was forced to reduce the number of frames to win. This happened for a simple reason: snooker matches began to be broadcast on television, and the broadcast time was limited.


So, since 1980, the maximum possible number of final games has been reduced to 35. By the way, around the same time, thanks to the arrival of new professional players, the tournament bracket expanded: now the matches of the main part of the championship began with the 1/16 finals. The rest of the matches were played according to a well-established system, which for almost 30 years has undergone minimal changes: 1/16 finals - matches up to 10 wins, 1/8 finals - up to 13 wins, 1/4 finals - up to 13 wins and semi-finals - up to 17 victories (up to 16 until 1997). Seeding of playersTraditionally, the first match of each new world championship is opened by the current winner.


Bemorepanda collected some interesting facts.


PREVIEW: 2021 World Snooker Championship - Cluster of Reds Snooker Blog


1. The fastest high of 147 in the history of snooker was made at the 1997 World Cup by Ronnie O'Sullivan. It was unimaginably fast - only five minutes and 20 seconds, Ronini then played against Mick Price.


2. Chinese promoters have built a replica of the Crucible (the arena where the World Cup takes place) in Beijing as a first step in getting the World Cup to be hosted in China.


3. It must be said that the Chinese Crucible is completely identical to the English arena in Sheffield, and may be more than a convincing argument in the future. Sheffield has a contract to host the World Cup until 2017, and World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn said he just wants the tournament to stay in that city.


4. In total, 10 maximums were made during the televised stages of the World Championships. And three each - on account of Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O'Sullivan. Also among those who made 147 at this stage are Cliff Thorburn, Jimmy White, Ali Carter and Mark Williams. Moreover, Hendry made his last maximum in the championship in 2012, after which he retired.


5. Scottish players have won 12 of the last 25 world titles, including Hendry's seven (1990-92-93-94-95-96-99), John Higgins' four (1998-2007-2009-2011) and one in Graham Dott (2006).


________________________________________________________

Accordingly, when seeding for a tournament, he receives the first number, regardless of what place he occupies in the official or preliminary ranking. The second number is usually given to the player ranked first in the official rankings. The distribution of seeding among the remaining 14 snooker players from the Top 16 is also made in accordance with the official ranking. For example, at the 2010 tournament, the first seed was the winner of the 2009 championship (that is, the previous champion) John Higgins (although at that time he was only the 4th number in the rating).


The second was Ronnie O'Sullivan, who occupied the 1st at that time in the rating. The third seed went to Stephen Maguire (ranked 2). It should also be noted that the distribution of "unseeded" (qualified) players to the first round of the final stage (1/16 finals) is made by random draw, and their official rating does not play no role. For example, in the 1/16th of the same tournament in 2010, Higgins, being the first seed, played with the 17th seed, and the 2nd seed (O'Sullivan) played with the 27th number.


Prize money at the World Snooker Championship appeared from the very first year of its holding and amounted to 6 pounds and 10 shillings. By 1946, the prize money had increased to £1,000 for the victory and the final, and although translated into the current exchange rate, this amount increases several times, the money was clearly not enough all this time.


The situation changed for the better in the early 1970s, when snooker tournaments began to be shown on television, and well-known sponsors (mostly advertising cigarettes and alcoholic beverages) became interested in the game. did not increase, but the sponsors themselves changed three times over the next 10 years.


The arrival of the cigarette brand Embassy in 1976 was crucial for the tournament, and it began to actively increase the prize fund. At the first Embassy-sponsored World Championship, the prize money totaled ? 15,300; the champion guaranteed himself £6,000. But already by 1995, the fund was set at 578,250, and in the 2003 championship, a record for prize money, only the winner received ? 270 thousand. The general fund of that superiority has made 1 378 920 pounds.

________________________________________________________



6. Derbyshire player Joe Davis became the first world champion in 1927 and won 15 titles in a row, ie. all the World Cups in which he participated. He won his last world title in 1946 and ended his career undefeated.


7. Only two players participated in the 1931 World Cup. Tom Dennis, in whose pub this tournament was organized, lost 25:21 to Joe Davis.


8. Fred Davis, who won eight world titles, reached the 1978 semi-finals at the age of 64. Joe Davis, his brother, collapsed watching the semi-finals and died two months later.


9. The youngest world champion was Stephen Hendriev in 1990. The Scot was only 21 years old when he defeated Jimmy White 18:12.


10. Hendry was the youngest player to make his World Cup debut in 1986 until his record was broken by Belgian Luca Brecel in 2012 when she made her first World Cup appearance at 17 years and 45 days old.


11. In 2005, Sean Murphystal was the first player to qualify and eventually win the world title. Judd Trump almost repeated his achievement in 2011, but failed, losing in the final to John Higgins.


12. The TV audience for the World Cup final, in which Dennis Taylor defeated Steve Davis by winning in the last black, was 18.5 million in the UK alone. TV time, both are still unbeaten. However, when compared with China, in particular, with the audience of Ding Junhui's matches, these numbers are simply meager.


________________________________________________________

In addition, since the early 1990s, players who made the maximum break have also received a solid reward in the amount of 157,000 to 167,000 pounds (147,000 for the maximum itself and up to 20,000 for the highest break of the tournament); in 2011, this bonus was canceled, and since 2012, a “rolling jackpot” system has been introduced. Geography of the championship and its participants Over 83 years (with short breaks) of its history, the World Championship has visited 13 cities and 3 countries of the world (Great Britain (England), South African Republic, Australia).


Among the most successful players, both before and now, the British dominate, but recently participants from traditionally “non-nooker” countries have begun to appear. Since the beginning of the 90s, representatives of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, China, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, the Netherlands, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Thailand, Pakistan, Malta and Belgium have played in the final stage of the tournament.Among The most successful non-British snooker players who have not yet finished their careers include Neil Robertson from Australia (winner of the 2010 World Cup), Stefan Mazrotsis from the Netherlands, who made it to the 16 finals at the 1997 World Cup, Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo from China and Tony Drago from Malta.


Recently, information has periodically appeared that the World Cup could be moved to China, but not earlier than the current contract with the Sheffield Crucible ends. The desire to move the tournament to China is due to the high popularity of snooker in this country, as well as the possibility of attracting new major sponsors.


Ranking Points Ranking points at the World Championships have always been and remain the most valuable of all snooker tournaments. Although until 2005 the winners of the championship received 8,000 points, this was enough for them to sharply improve or strengthen their position in the world rankings, since the points in most other competitions were half as much. Often, it was the victory in the championship that brought snooker players with an insufficiently high rating the first place at the end of the season. For example, in 1990, Stephen Hendry became the first thanks to the victory in the championship, although before that he was far behind Steve Davis.

________________________________________________________



13. Jimmy White, Walter Donaldson and Fred Davis each lost six finals - and this is an anti-record. True, White, unlike Donaldson and Davis, has never been a world champion.


14. In the entire history of the World Championships, there was only one devastating match with a dry score. It happened in the first round in 1992, when 62-year-old Australian Eddie Charlton suffered a crushing 10-0 loss to then-champion John Parrott.


15. The maximum capacity of the Crucible is 980 spectators.


16. Ronnie O'Sullivan turned professional as Under-21 World Snooker Champion. Of the seventy-two of his first matches as a professional, Ronnie won seventy.


17. Alex Higgins was the first player to play 15 reds over blacks in the World Championship, although he never quite got to the 147-point streak.


18. At the age of 16 years and 11 months, Jimmy White became the youngest amateur world champion (this happened in 1970).


________________________________________________________

Points are distributed among the players to varying degrees depending on their position in the official rankings and the tournament result. For example, players with a lower rating (outside the Top 16, i.e. qualified) receive more points for losing in the round of 32 strongest (1/16 finals) than participants in the Top 16 with the same result. the history of the event has only been played a few times over the course of more than one year. In general, the dates for this tournament have been set for quite a long time - this is approximately mid-April - early May.


For example, the 2008 World Cup was held daily from April 19 to May 5. Qualifying matches For a long time (until 2010), the qualification of the main tour players in the main part of the tournament was usually carried out in two stages. The first was played by snooker players, who occupy the lowest positions in the official ranking. The first stage was usually held in winter, in early to mid-January. The second qualifying stage was held in the spring, two or three months before the start of the championship[29]. In 2010, it was decided to bring the two qualifying stages closer together in calendar terms and to be held, with short breaks, between February 26 and March 9.


Starting from 2011, all qualifying rounds were set to be held daily, one after another, with the only one-day break left to restore the gaming tables. Recently, the so-called pre-qualification, or qualification for players who are part of the WPBSA, but not playing in main tour. It, depending on the number of participants, can consist of several stages, and gives the opportunity for former professionals (or other WPBSA members who are not playing on the tour) to get into the main qualification and fight further for getting into the final stage. Previously, when significantly more snooker players were playing on the main tour, there was a pre-qualification for regular amateur players instead.

the-tallest-woman-is-from-turkey-she-is-24-years-old-and-over-215-meters

A woman from Turkey has been officially declared the tallest female person alive by Guinness World Records. The young woman is 24 years old and measures 215.16 centimeters. The height reached by Rumeysa Gelgi is the result of a condition called Weaver syndrome which, among other things, causes an accelerated growth.


"Every disadvantage can be turned into an advantage for you, so accept yourself as you are, be aware of your own potential and do everything you can, ”said the young woman, who is extremely active on social networks.


This is the second time that Gelgi has managed to break a world record, after being declared the tallest teenager alive in 2014. Since then, she has used this platform to support other people diagnosed with rare diseases, notes dpa , quoted by Agerpres. Most of the time, she uses a wheelchair, although she can walk with a frame.



"It is an honor to welcome Rumeysa back to the Book of Records. Her untamed spirit and pride in being noticed in the crowd is an inspiration, "said Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records.

"The category dedicated to the tallest woman in life is not one in which the protagonists change very often, so I am delighted to share this news with the world," he added.



The tallest man in the world, Sultan Kosen, is from the same country, Turkey. He was 251 centimeters tall when he was measured, in 2018.

The tallest woman alive was Zeng Jinlian, from China, with a height of 246.3 centimeters, measured before she died, in 1982.

30-most-interestingand-amazing-facts-about-google-that-is-mind-blowing-bemorepanda

The brand of the search giant Google is probably one of the most recognizable on the globe, and today only a person who is very far from the Internet and civilization has not heard about the company. At the same time, the activities of the "corporation of good" are so diverse that even its employees themselves do not know about all the initiatives of their management. Bemorepanda choosed 30 unusual and interesting facts about the world famous company that you most likely did not even know about.


Many people dream of working at Google. Getting there is not easy - sometimes interviews alone can take six months. But if you happen to be there, even if you are an intern, you can celebrate winning the jackpot.


1. Before giving the user the result of a search query, Google takes into account about 200 different factors.


2. The company owns a bunch of domains that are the wrong spelling for Google. For example, Gooogle.com, Gogle.com, Googlr.com and many others. Among them there are even such exotic ones as 466453.com - these are numbers on the phone's disk that correspond to the letters of Google.


3. When Google launched in 1998, the system was processing 500,000 queries a day. Now users ask the system for something more than 2 million times per second.


4. Since Google launched Street View in 2007, the project team has photographed over 11.5 million kilometers of roads and objects.


5. The first five American cities were captured with a 5 megapixel camera. Now the company uses devices with 75-megapixel sensors.

6. Every month, YouTube users watch over 6 billion hours of video - about an hour for every inhabitant of the globe.


7. Google regularly buys and funds projects that aim to change the world and the lives of millions of people. However, the "corporation of good" does not shun small, local projects. For example, in 2012, the company added the Cherokee American Indian language to Gmail.


8. More than 300 hours of new videos appear on YouTube every minute.


9. Last year, more than 1 billion Android devices were sold worldwide. This means that Google's market share in this segment is 81%.


10. In total, Google employs 53,600 people in 70 offices from 40 countries.

11. If a corporation likes something, then it will not stand up to the costs to buy it. This year, the company made more than 170 acquisitions, and the value of the top 10 purchases exceeded $ 24.5 billion.


12. Despite the huge number of adventurous and super-innovative projects, such as self-driving cars or smart contact lenses, the bulk of Google's revenue comes from advertising. In 2014, revenue from this type of activity amounted to $ 66 billion.


13. Larry Page and Sergey Brin released the first Doodle in August 1998. During this time, they were participating in the Burning Man rally through the Nevada desert and wanted the world to know where they were at the moment.


14. The volume of the Google search index is over 100 million GB. To accommodate this amount of data would require over 100,000 terabyte hard drives.


15. People trust and love Google services so much that when the system dropped by 5 minutes in 2013, the volume of global traffic dropped by 40%.

16. Google is probably the only company in the world that wants people to spend as little time on their website as possible.


17. Google was originally called BackRub. This is how the main page of the search engine looked like, which became the prototype of Google.


18. Google's incredibly fast growth is especially noticeable against the backdrop of one curious fact: since 2010, the Internet giant has bought an average of one company per week.


19. The first doodle was invented by Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page together. It happened in 1998. A schematic image of a burning guy, a symbol of the Burning Man festival, which takes place in the Black Rock desert of Nevada, has been added to the usual multicolored Google inscription. Brin and Page went there in 2008.


20. Google's own chef, Charlie Ayers, came to Google in 1999, when the company had only 40 employees.

22. Gmail already supports over 50 different languages. Among them are the Basque, Welsh, Tagalog, Malayalam, Telulu and Cherokee languages.

27. The first official tweet from Google's corporate Twitter meant "I'm in luck," but it was written in binary, meaning it was all zeros and ones.


28. Google's competitor, Mozilla (Firefox browser), receives money from the Internet giant. For the fact that the default browser uses the Google search engine, its developer receives $ 300 million a year.


29. The total cost of this 16 percent stake is close to $ 46 billion.


30. Each new employee within the company is called a noogler, and the former is called a xoogler.
