Dear sir /ma,
I am Shadrach Promise Owhorji, from ikwerre local government area of
Rivers State of the federal Republic of Nigeria.
I am an adult male citizen, aged 29 years old.
I am a human rights activist, Educationist and also a political scientist
Having seen the good work of the AI, and having glance through the past
and present records of the AI, have just decided to be part of the
Community that affects people's lives positively. I really wish to be
giving the opportunity and audience to push and defend the course of the
Amnesty International in my region.
Having stipulated the above, my request is therefore your approval to
start up the campaign of AI here, perhaps engage myself with training and
retraining of the Amnesty supporters around the world.
I also call on your office to provide me the required documents in order to
to have issues with representation here in Nigeria.
I will be glad if my request will be granted.
I anticipate your cooperation.
Sincerely, Comrade, Shadrach Promise Owhorji......
I just found this talk by the Wikimedia Legal interns from July of 2016.
The Wikimedia legal interns will be hosting a panel titled "Artificial
> Intelligence and the Law." The discussion (lasting about an hour) will
> focus on the intersection of emerging technologies, like driverless cars,
> web crawlers, and lethal autonomous weapons, and the legal issues they
> raise, including in the areas of employment and liability. The panel
> speakers will explore the legal challenges presented by emerging
> technologies and artificial intelligence and how the legal industry has
> responded to those challenges.
Good evening sir,
Please I don't understand this information,
Could you please explain to me more about this message.

Subject: [Labs-l] [Labs-announce] Tools DB / Labs Postgres DB maintenance
on 15 Feb 2017
Tools DB and Labs Postgres DB will be undergoing maintenance on 15 Feb
2017 for about 6 hours starting at 1700 UTC and will be unreachable
for some of the duration. Most users shouldn't experience issues if
their code reconnects properly when the server stops accepting
connections (we'll failover to slaves when doing maintenance). Some
tables will not be available for a short period of time, but the tool
owners of those tables have already been notified (see
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T127164 ). We'll try to minimize
downtime as much as possible.
We will be upgrading the operating system from Ubuntu Precise to
Debian Jessie in preparation for EOL of Ubuntu Precise (in April
2017). We'll also take this opportunity to upgrade Tools DB to Mariadb
All data should be preserved in this migration. Follow
