The word propaganda is defined as designating any attempt to influence the opinions or actions of others to some predetermined end by appealing to their emotions or prejudices or by distorting the facts. We are fooled by propaganda chiefly because they appeal to our emotions rather than to our reason. They make us believe and do something we would not believe or do. And since it appeal more to our emotions; we often don’t recognize it when we see it.
The current political landscape is shaped by extreme polarization of opinions and by the proliferation of fake news.
Studies and surveys has found that rumour’s and fake news tend to spread six times faster than truthful information. This situation both damages the reputation of respectable news outlets and it also undermines the very foundations of democracy, which needs free and reliable press to thrive. Therefore, it is in the interest of the public as well as of the news organizations to be able to detect and fight disinformation in all its forms.
Here, we are trying to create a tool that can help identify propagandistic articles with the help of Predictive Analytics.
The main objectives are:
(i) to flag the article as a whole
(ii) to detect the potentially propagandistic sentences in a news article
(iii) to identify the exact type and span of use of propagandistic techniques

Problem statement :This data set is regarding time series analysis on failure rate of ravens sending the messages from king’s landing to the north . This case study is an analogy on Telenor telecommunications and Game of Thrones . Due to the obstacles that caused the failure rate , various techniques and schemes are employed in the planning, design and optimization of raven networks to combat these propagation effects.

We have used R-studio for Exploratory Data Analysis.
As per the tasks given to us , we concluded that
1.Brass Raven Birdy has been delayed for the most number of times , followed by Brown raven ruby and Yellow raven Rio,
while Metallic Sunburst Raven Polly has been delayed for the least number of times , followed by Green Sheen raven Azul and Less combative raven zazu.
2. The family with most fails is Targerian , while with least fails is Lannister
3. The family Member with most fails is Petyr Baelish and with least fails is Euron .
We have done further analysis on predicting the fails for the next four days using TIME SERIES ANALYSIS
