At least 45 people have reportedly died in the attacks, which occurred in the capital, Baghdad, and other areas of the country today as well as yesterday as Shi’a pilgrims mark an important religious festival. Ad Melkert, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, described the attacks as “horrific crimes committed against defenceless civilians who were practicing their faith.”The formation of a broad-based government will be the most effective response in the face of insurgents who are aiming at destabilizing the country, added Mr. Melkert, who is also head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).In February, over 40 people were killed and more than 100 injured in a suicide bombing that targeted Shi’a pilgrims travelling from Baghdad to Karbala. Meanwhile, a new UN human rights report covering the latter part of 2009 shows that attacks deliberately targeting religious and ethnic groups continue unabated, including against the Shabak, a Shi’a minority, and Christians. The report, prepared by UNAMI and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), notes with deep concern the high rate of indiscriminate and targeted attacks, notably at places of worship, and against ethnic groups that claimed hundreds of lives from 1 July to 31 December. It also documents ongoing violence and targeted assassinations against government officials, high profile figures and journalists, according to a news release issued by UNAMI.At least 4,068 civilians were killed and 15,935 injured in Iraq in 2009, according to figures provided by UNAMI and the Government. While the number of civilian deaths decreased slightly in the second half of the year, the number of injured civilians rose dramatically, with 9,747 civilians injured during attacks, compared with 6,188 during the first six months.The report also draws attention to the human rights situation in prisons and places of detention in Iraq, as well as the fact that over 1,250 prisoners were facing execution, as of 31 December.UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said that continuing allegations of ill-treatment and torture in detention facilities in addition to poor conditions of detention remain of concern. “I urge the Government of Iraq to investigate all such allegations and bring those responsible to justice. Otherwise, these practices will continue to tarnish Iraq’s recovery.” 8 July 2010The top United Nations official in Iraq has strongly condemned the series of bombings targeting pilgrims during a religious commemoration, which have resulted in the killing of dozens of worshippers and the wounding hundreds more.
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders was fined $50,000 by the NFL for faking an injury during a game in Cincinnati on Oct. 21.Sanders initially played coy in public comments about the incident, but in recent weeks has said the matter was being handled internally.Also fined on Friday by the league were Panthers safety Haruki Nakamura and Packers tight end Ryan Taylor, $21,000 each; Titans safety Michael Griffin, $20,000; Raiders cornerback Tyvon Branch, Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, and Cardinals linebacker Quentin Groves, $15,750 each; Ravens LB Dannell Ellerbe, $10,000; Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, Colts cornerback Cassius Vaughn, and Steelers safety Will Allen, $7,875 apiece.During the Steelers-Bengals game, NBC announcers openly discussed their belief Sanders apparently was deliberately feigning an injury for the purpose of saving a timeout.Anderson said it found no evidence the Steelers, on an organization-wide basis, were instructing or condoning the faking of injuries for competitive purposes.“If I believed that to be the case, the discipline would be substantially more,” Anderson said. “Instead, it reflects the commissioner’s strong view that it is the responsibility of the club to insure that its players are familiar with and in compliance with the league’s competitive rules.”In an open letter to Sanders and Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert, Anderson cited video evidence to the contrary of Sanders’ contention that he was in severe pain while lying on the ground, before or after the play.Sanders sat out one play — a team trainer attended to him — and then returned to the game for the next play, a Pittsburgh punt. Anderson noted that Sanders outran his teammates and downed the ball.“The video of the play shows Sanders running swiftly and effortlessly toward the punted ball, and then leaving the field with no sign of discomfort,” Anderson wrote. “Sanders also played the rest of the game without difficulty.”The NFL sent out a memo to team general managers and coaches in September that said, “The Competition Committee deprecates feigning injuries.” The league reiterated it had the power to fine players, coaches or teams or even take away draft picks.This is the first punishment the league has handed out for faking an injury.When asked two days before his meeting with the league if he thought the NFL had a problem with faking, Sanders said “Not that I know of.”

Cheating devices are available to buy online, fueling fears that growing number of students are turning to the products It is considering a number of proposals with higher education bodies, ranging from fines, academic blacklists, and even criminal records for students caught cheating. Amazon declined to comment. Students should be subject to “intrusive” airport-style searches before sitting exams, MPs and university bosses have said, amid fears a growing number are using tiny in-ear devices to cheat the system.It comes after official data revealed for the first time that “cheat tech” is on the rise, as hundreds of students have been caught with covert technological devices during tests.Experts warn the figures are just the “tip of an iceberg” with the true number of exam cheats likely to be far higher, as they are “fiendishly difficult” to catch.A Sunday Telegraph investigation has found high-tech ear pieces available for UK students to buy on Amazon and eBay, under listings which include the words “exam cheat”. A ‘cheat’ calculator which doubles up as a word reader or video player, found advertised online Following the discovery eBay has said it is now in the process of withdrawing the listings. Amazon confirmed it was aware it had been selling the devices, but refused to say whether it would remove the products.Electronic cheating devices range in price from under £50 to around £350 for highly sophisticated models.The latest versions come with a speaker which is smaller than a grain of rice and sits in the ear, while wirelessly connecting to a device, such as a phone, which can play audio notes.Wires and sensors are used connect the tiny speaker to a student’s feet, allowing them to use subtle toe movements to fast forward and rewind recordings.Last night Neil Carmichael, chairman of the Education Select Committee called on the Government to introduce “random spot checks” and counter technology measures to combat the cheat tech trend. “This trend threatens to undermine our exam system if it’s allowed to go unchecked and I think the Government need to be acting on this, because we’ve seen, increasingly, that the scale of cheating is growing.Professor Julia Black, acting director at the London School of Economics, said it was “fiendishly difficult” for university authorities to catch exam cheats adding that she “despairs” at the idea that students would use earpieces.She called for universities to “do what is necessary” to protect the integrity of exams, even if this meant using more “intrusive” methods of checking students. He told this newspaper: “It’s frightening, but I’m not sure dealing with one or two particular outlets will solve this issue. We need a comprehensive solution, and I would say we should be thinking about counter technology, and random spot checks. Matthew Warman MP, a member of the Technology Select Committee, said the issue could require fuller investigation and guidance from central government. “Universities in time will need to go beyond the basic software they have to make sure these kind of gadgets are not be ingused to cheat the system,” he added.Tim Loughton, a Conservative MP, described the phenomenon as “shocking” and urged the Government to take steps to stop in-ear devices. He added: “It is a sorry situation that we might have to come to everyone having their ears inspected, which may be what needs to happen.”Ian Austin MP, another member of the education select committee said: “The Telegraph’s investigation raise really worrying questions and universities must act.”They need to find ways of checking before exams to prevent students using new technology to cheat. It is unacceptable to have some students gaining an unfair advantage over their peers by sneaking into exam halls with gadgets that allow them to cheat.” Universities Minister Jo Johnson said: “Cheating is not acceptable and undermines standards in our universities. We are already demanding tough penalties on the use of essay mill websites and expect universities to have clear policies and sanctions in place to deal with cheating of any kind.”An eBay spokesman said: “We work with the police and regulators to ensure that all our listings comply with the law. There are blocks in place to prevent listings like these, and we also constantly monitor our marketplace to prevent the listing of items that contravene our policies.” Baroness Alison Wolf, a cross-bench peer and professor of education at King’s College London, suggested that universities need to update their checks on students, and may have to consider installing airport-style metal detectors.She said: “If it gets really widespread then students will just have the queue for hours to get in [to exam halls],” she said. “We could end up with that. The costs of this would be just huge.”Data obtained through Freedom of Information requests has revealed a 42pc rise in cheating cases involving technology over the last four years. The figure rose from 148 cases in 2012 to 210 in 2016, it showed.In 2016 a quarter of all students caught cheating used electronic devices.It comes as cheating in exams could soon be made a criminal offence as the Department of Education is consulting with universities over how to crackdown on cheating students.

Expérimentations des fréquences 4G : le CSA met en gardeAprès les négociations avec les opérateurs autour du nouveau réseau 4G sur le territoire français, les expérimentations ont débuté à la mi-octobre mais non sans problème. Le réseau TNT en serait perturbé.A Laval, où ont eu lieu ces premiers tests, des brouillages ont été constatés sur la TNT. De ce fait, le CSA (Conseil Supérieur de l’Audiovisuel) n’a pas tardé à demander l’arrêt des expérimentations le week-end. À lire aussiLa 4G, l’arme anti Free MobileSelon l’Express, le CSA attendrait la fin des tests, le 31 octobre prochain pour tirer des conclusions. Mais il est certain que le Conseil sera “intransigeant sur le respect de la qualité de la bonne réception de la télévision”. Pourtant, Bouygues Telecom, l’un des futurs acteurs de la 4G en France avec SFR, Orange et Free Mobile, avait tiré la sonnette d’alarme en alertant l’Etat de tels brouillages.20% des foyers français pourraient être concernés par ce problème lié à la 4G, qui, par moment, bloquerait même l’écran de la télévision. La solution est, quant à elle, déjà disponible mais elle coûte chère. Si chère que les opérateurs ne veulent pas payer de leur poche et exigent que cela soit pris en compte par l’Etat lui-même. Un bras de fer est donc en train de se dessiner entre l’Etat et les opérateurs télécoms pour savoir qui va régler la note. Il semblerait pourtant que la Grande Bretagne ait connu un problème similaire, on comprend donc mal pourquoi cela n’a pas été anticipé par l’Etat (qui espère 1.8 milliards d’euros en revendant ces licences 4G aux opérateurs). Affaire à suivre…Le 25 octobre 2011 à 09:36 • Maxime Lambert
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Related Items:#magneticmedianews Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, June 26, 2017 – Providenciales – The past few days in the TCI has seen us casted in a negative light in major US media houses. This day was feared by many, but we believe with the response we see especially among the people of this country, that this can be a turning point in addressing crimes among our residents and visitors.I speak of the recent shooting incident involving a tourist. My Government’s thoughts and prayers are with Mr Newman and his family. We continue through our Tourist Board to maintain contact with Mrs Newman and receive updates on his care. Under the NHIP Policy my Government was able to offer coverage of the medical transport to a receiving facility. However we understand that those arrangements were made through private arrangements.As Premier, I acknowledge my Government’s initial response contained in a Release issued by the Minister of Tourism who responded on behalf the Government and over the past two days we have met with the Police and amongst ourselves to see how best we can support the Police at this time and to devise a way forward on repairing the obvious fall out in reputation through positive messaging that is us TCI.After taking into account all efforts through all Agencies, I address you today.We wish to at the outset thank the medical staff at Interhealth Canada’s facility in Providenciales for their response and critical care administered to the Mr Newman.This is no time for more speeches but for our people to know that we continue to support the Police in their efforts to ebb the stem of gun related offences and do so with a record that we can already begin to feel proud of. I wish to recount for the benefit of us all how we have supported the Police over the past six months and I outline them as follows:Making a request to the UK for assistance and the resultant UK Security Assessment as early as February this year during my first visit to London;The purchasing of a building to house the highly anticipated CCTV Program and other new crime fighting initiatives;The approval of funding for additional Police Officers including managers of the CCTV Project in the recently passed Budget;The approval of $1.2m in the purchase of new cars in the recently passed budget;The agreement in the National Security Council to devise a national security strategy;The inclusion of modern crime fighting initiatives and other legislative support for the Police in our legislative calendar;The beginning works jointly between the Police and Immigration to seek out and to repatriate undocumented persons to the tone of over 500 in the last six months (these numbers are not those repatriated through entry on illegal sloops); And we can expect to see greater efforts in this area after the recruitment of additional Police and Immigration Officers already provided for in the recently passed Budget;The presentation, as Premier, to Cabinet of a Paper on the rehabilitation of offenders in an effort to reduce the rate of repeat offenders,The initial dialogue with the TCHTA and to having received their agreement to employ those at risk under the Government’s Change for Change Program to be led by the Ministry of Home Affairs; andHolding meetings with Pastors to assist in creating Programs that will address our youth.Crime fighting is everyone’s business and while in Opposition we continued to lead on this dialogue. We acknowledge that many of these measures are not yet in place and can look forward with great anticipation. However we acknowledge the awakened consciousness of our people for the immediate here and now which is critical. In what is now a challenging period, we see a readied people ready to assist and play its role and commend those who have stepped forward to play a more active role as a citizen.As Premier, I must say that I am pleased with the efforts of the Police who are working hard in the aftermath to bring these culprits to justice and I am in particular pleased that the Acting Commissioner on the evening after visited the majority of Resorts and interacted with guests until the wee hours of the morning.What is left for me to say as Premier following our Government’s initial response and the Acting Commissioner’s multiple updates is that there are four things I wish for us to know:My Government remains firm in its stance for stiff penalties for gun crimes and crimes against visitors to our shores which are already in law and we are keen to support stiffer penalties where needs be;The Police has our full support in diverting even more resources into the Grace Bay area and certainly not at a loss to local communities;I am excited that our people are keen to be greater participants in this fight against crime and I call on us all to remain interested and to know that the best help that can come forward from you now is information. You may think what you saw or hear is insignificant but we are appealing to you to contact law enforcement who is prepared to investigate any and all tips for this recent incident and all instances.I encourage residents and visitors alike to be vigilant and to not take any unnecessary risks by making yourselves an easy victim.The response of our people shows that this level of crime, though comparatively very low, will not be tolerated and as Premier, I am confident that serious crime strategies already in train together with tougher penalties and a plan to save our youth are the keys to lowering crimes.My Government over the next few days, weeks and months (and led jointly by the Premier’s Office and the Ministry of Tourism together with key stakeholders and residents living at home and abroad who have already offered to assist in ensuring that the positive message about Turks and Caicos Islands remains out there) will embark on an aggressive positive campaign. We remain a safe destination and we are certain of this. We do not and will not downplay the recent incident in any way and will continue to support the Police in every way. This time however requires that all hands are and remain on deck.May God bless these Turks and Caicos Islands.#magneticmedianews The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting

Citation: WPA Wi-Fi Encryption Cracked In Sixty Seconds (2009, August 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-08-wpa-wi-fi-encryption-sixty-seconds.html (PhysOrg.com) — Two Japanese computer scientists have developed a way to crack the WPA encryption between wireless routes and devices in 60 seconds. Explore further The Final ‘Final’ Nail in WEP’s Coffin? Using this attack method, hackers can read encrypted data sent between wireless routers and computers. These attacks only work when a router’s wireless security is set for WPA using Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) algorithm. About a year ago security researchers explained how WPA could be cracked. The Japanese computer scientists took this theoretical approach and turned it into reality. All this is explained in a paper that was presented at the Joint Workshop on Information Security that was held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan this month. These attacks can be avoided by using the more recent WPA2 or WPA encryption systems that use a stronger algorithm, AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). Wireless routers have a long history of security problems that started back in 1997, when the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) system was first introduced. Two years latter WEP was cracked and rendered useless as an effective security option.WPA with TKIP was meant to be an interim encryption method for Wi-Fi security until a stronger algorithm was developed. Going forward the use of WPA2 should be the standard method for Wi-Fi security. As of March 2006, WPA2 has been certified in wireless router. Going forward users today should use either WPA2 or WPA with AES encryption in their wireless router.Via: TechWatch© 2009 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

Explaining her decision, the singer opened up about her relationship with Tyrone Jamison, a gay man who died of an AIDS-related illness in 2003.Beverley KnightShe said: “I lost a very good friend, Tyrone, in 2003 from an AIDS-related illness, and that loss still affects me very deeply now.“Tyrone leaned on Terrence Higgins Trust quite heavily because of his own HIV status, and he’s the person that brought the charity and their great work to my attention.“Today, HIV is not the death sentence it once was. Treatment works very effectively, meaning people who are HIV positive can live very long, very happy and very fulfilled lives – but as long as they know they have HIV and have treatment, and that’s the key.”Beverley explained that her last album Soulsville features a track dedicated to Tyrone’s memory, titled ‘When I See You Again’. Beverley Knight has opened up about losing a gay friend to AIDS-related illness, as she becomes the new Patron of HIV charity Terrence Higgins Trust.The beloved soul singer was announced today as the new Patron of the charity, which offers support, information and advice services for those living with HIV. She said: “I think the main challenge around HIV is stigma – stigma is terrible.“It’s a real problem because until we get past the stigma we can’t get people to admit to themselves that they could or do have the virus, and therefore need to have a test and get effective treatment.“Some people just don’t think it will ever happen to them, so that’s why HIV awareness needs to be at the forefront of people’s minds now more than ever.”“I hope that there is enough passion and experience in what I say, so when I speak about HIV people will listen. I want to rouse people from their slumber and get them to face the reality of HIV head on instead of putting their heads in the sand.”Ian Green, Chief Executive of Terrence Higgins Trust, said: “We are honoured to welcome Beverley Knight as a patron of Terrence Higgins Trust.“Beverley has been a long standing supporter of the charity and has passionately campaigned to help stop HIV stigma and to ensure people with HIV live healthy and long lives.“We are truly grateful for the unique contribution Beverley makes to people living with HIV, and we’re looking forward to continuing our work together as we aim to bring an end to HIV transmissions and to stigma.”She joins the charity’s current Patrons, a group which includes Stephen Fry, Tracey Emin and Dame Judi Dench.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Prince Harry and Meghan Markle mark World AIDS Day: ‘We owe it to this generation to eradicate AIDS’Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend World AIDS Day eventPrince Harry and Meghan will be the most pro-LGBTI royal couple everPINK NEWS-

UK tourism hoping for international boost during Queen’s birthdayBritain as a tourist destination will be in the global media spotlight in the coming days with Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, the arrival of US President Barack Obama, and the 400thanniversary of Shakespeare’s death and VisitBritain is hoping for a boost in visitor numbers with these milestone events and their chance to showcase the best of ‘destination’ Britain to the world. VisitBritain Marketing Director Joss Croft said: “As the world’s media turns its attention to these significant events and to some of our most iconic sites including Windsor Castle, where President Obama will dine with Her Majesty The Queen and Stratford-upon-Avon as we mark the 400th anniversary of the Bard, we’ve got a fantastic opportunity to showcase Britain as truly the ‘home of amazing moments’ with experiences that visitors – including the President –can only get here.”VisitBritain is putting a call out for President Obama to tweet during his visit using #OMGB (Oh My Great Britain) – the hashtag at the heart of the organisation’s marketing campaign for 2016 to promote Britain as the ‘Home of Amazing Moments’. President Obama has the highest number of Twitter followers and Facebook fans of any world leader with more than 73 million followers and 48 million fans respectively.Inbound tourism could also expect a boost in visitor numbers as the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare, hailed as the UK’s greatest cultural export, is used to promote the best of UK culture globally with concerts, plays, exhibitions and other celebrations underway throughout the year, making it a great time for visitors to come and explore the home of one of the world’s greatest playwrights.Latest figures from VisitBritain show that inbound visits to Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, are growing with overnight visitor numbers more than doubling in the four years from 2010 to 2014 from 70,000 to 144,000 visits respectively.Overall 2015 set a new record for inbound tourism to the UK with 35.8 million visits, four per cent up on 2014 and the fifth consecutive year of growth.
