Books to read this weekend

first_imgUntangle the origins and ancestry of the Nagas that has been an issue of veritable contestation among historians; thereafter, be inspired by the journey of an entrepreneur who fought-off a heart attack at 38 to rebuild his life; and finally, go through the exhilarating experience of day-to-day transformation to give yourself a vibrant and radiant life. This week’s books provide much food for thought: ‘Walking The Roadless Road –Exploring The Tribes Of Nagaland’ by Easterine Kire Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe book began as an ambitious project of collecting historical and geographical information on Nagaland, which would also include its political and cultural history, a journey that the author began with trepidation, given its scope. As there is a debate on the exact number of tribes who can be described as Naga, Kire chose to steer clear of controversy by focusing only on the tribes who live within the borders of the state of Nagaland. Kire begins with an overview of migration narratives – both mythical and historical – of the various tribes beginning from the 19th century. She then delves deep into the origins of the Nagas, their early history as forest dwellers, how the discrete Naga territories were formed, the various struggles that have convulsed Naga society down the ages and the sweeping changes that have transformed the community in the 21st century. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma Award”The hitherto undocumented information on many of the tribes is a valuable and timely harvest. I hope researchers and students can make good use of it and also the curious traveller will get to understand the Naga tribes a little better by this effort,” Kire says. ‘Myth of the Entrepreneur – A Search For True Value’ by Ravi Kailas with Cathy Guo As an entrepreneur, you learn to master serendipity, says Kailas, who put behind him a heart-attack at 38 to understand how to seize the unexpected in one’s favour. “Each of us holds some set of core beliefs about the world. Often, when we are presented with evidence that contradicts our core beliefs, we refuse to accept the new evidence, to hold the contradiction of our new realisation in our mind. To avoid the discomfort of contradiction and protect our core beliefs, we choose to ignore evidence that forces us to reassess the world,” Kailas writes. Enter the serendipity factor. “Myth of the Entrepreneur” is an intimate exploration of Kailas’s journey to understand what constitutes true value and how each of us can integrate this concept to lead more fruitful, connected and liberated lives. ‘Lose Weight Gain Shape’ by Dr Mickey Mehta Most of the world is now at a stage where comforts and luxuries are more available to the masses than ever before and we have become complete suckers for the luxuries/conveniences that have now become so commonplace and this is where evolution suffers, Mehta says. Life is all about first being intimate with our own being. With our survival needs met, we should now be looking at moving forward on the evolutionray scale towards self-awareness and self-realisation. Towards this end, Mehta has evolved a Yo Workout Plan – yoga in poetry – that will help you lose weight and gain shape. “It is an exercise format based on overall wellness with its core principle being intermittent intensity and submaximal capacity and resistance offered to the body,” Mehta says, noting that this form of training scientifically recruits maximum muscle groups to deliver a superior workout by allowing one muscle group to rest while the other is being worked out. At the bottom line, “It also develops an inner sense of balance, focus and concentration and promotes the idea that renewing ourselves should be part of our daily routine in order to live happy and fruitful lives”, Mehta explains.last_img read more

Embattled mmiwg inquiry get six more months

first_imgChief Commissioner Marion Buller speaks at a community hearing. Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsCarolyn Bennett seems to have signalled a number of things Tuesday by awarding only a short-term extension to the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.“They’re telling Indigenous women that their voices will be silenced,” said Jody Leon, an MMIWG activist and member of the Splatsin First Nation in B.C.“If you can push a pipeline through why can’t you deal with a province?”Bennett, the minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, said she couldn’t get unanimity from provinces and territories on putting more money and time into the inquiry.So she pushed its two-year deadline back six months to April 2019 and gave them another six months to produce a final report by June 2019.But Leon says that’s not enough time and shows the government’s priorities are skewed.“I was at the national inquiry in Vancouver; I saw the complexity of the stories that were being told.”The four remaining commissioners expressed “profound disappointment” in Bennett’s announcement, saying it did an “injustice” to families.However, Suzan Fraser, a lawyer for a coalition of 20 families, says the minister seems to be showing concern for families by putting $21.3-million into aftercare – a complaint that has haunted the inquiry throughout.“The families have been having (an) incredibly difficult (time) accessing aftercare and support,” Fraser said from Ontario.Bernadette Smith of Winnipeg, whose sister Claudette Osborne disappeared in July 2008, was more pointed.“They’ve had millions of dollars to do this work; families have had zero dollars,” Smith said via phone.Smith, who did not testify at the $54-million inquiry when it was in Winnipeg in November 2017, didn’t support its official call in March to double its timeline or budget.“When they say they’re disappointed, well, families are even more disappointed at what’s transpired,” Smith said of the inquiry’s performance to date.The inquiry lost the support of Metis and Inuit women in March when both groups opposed an extension.Tuesday, Melanie Omeniho, president of the Women of the Métis Nation, applauded Bennett’s decision to shorten the reins.“We can’t wait two more years to start addressing some of the healing and trauma that some of these families have experienced,” she said from Edmonton.Omeniho says commissioners have now been given enough time to conclude their evidence gathering and deliver strong recommendations for preventing further violence against Indigenous women and girls.In the meantime, she says her group asked Bennett to fund their own research project into what women and girls need to help them survive and thrive after the inquiry cut off all contact with them.“We need to get resources to families to help them build on changing this legacy,” she said.Bennett said funding for the inquiry going forward would be “conditional” on a work plan, which sounds like code for a short financial and administrative leash.Said mmiwg advocate Pam Palmater: “It seems to be sending the signal that you need to just finish this. They didn’t get an extra cent of extra money.”Chief Commissioner Marion Buller told APTN News in April she’d used up her budget and would need a loan to hold broad hearings on racism, policing and child welfare after wrapping community hearings with families in Vancouver.That barely caused a stir.And Palmater says it only added financial incompetence to the list of mounting problems.“I know the inquiry is trying to blame the federal government but it was the national inquiry folks that screwed all of this up. They were the ones that couldn’t get their act together for well over a year (due to staff turnover and scheduling issues),” she said.Palmater says advocates like her supported holding the inquiry to the same length and breadth as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).But failing that is not on Ottawa, she said.“The fact that it didn’t happens means you have to do the best with what you have in those two years and they wasted a year…and spent so much time on vacations and team building and dysfunction.”Meanwhile, more turmoil could lie ahead with Commissioner Michele Audette saying she may resign in response to Bennett’s decision.“I will allow myself the next few weeks to reflect, to analyze the decision, to express my personal opinion and to validate my future participation in the work of the National Inquiry,” Audette said in an emailed statement to reporters separate from the other three commissioners.last_img read more

Neither Ramzan nor temperature could stop people from casting vote

first_imgNew Delhi: A young woman in a veil walks straight to the polling booth in Jamia Nagar’s Noor Nagar, a closer look takes the attention to a newborn baby in her arms.Neither the temperature nor Ramzan could stop this young mother from stepping out of the comforts of her home and casting her vote in the sun with the baby. She is not alone, 81-year-old Mohammad Muslim walks with the help of a designer stick. Neither his old age nor the cataract in his eyes that he contracted because of diabetes could deter this octagenarian Muslim man from walking slowly to the polling booth and casting his vote. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehicles”I am diabetic, and of course old but I always make it a point to walk to the polling booth. If we do not cast our vote we have no right to brood over the results later. I could have easily sat back at home but when people see me walking to the polling booth they will at least take some inspiration,” Mohammad Muslim said. He was not alone, several other elderly men were seen at the polling booths. “I brought my grandfather to vote. He was quite enthusiastic and wanted to vote at the earliest. We tried convincing him to vote in the evening but he was adamant. Finally, we gave up and brought him to the booth at noon and he is happy now,” says Farhan.last_img read more

Morocco’s Consumer Price Inflation Increased to 1.6% in January

Rabat – The Moroccan High Planning Authority (HCP) said on Monday that Morocco’s consumer price inflation has increased from 0.4 percent in December to 1.6 percent in January as food and non-food prices increased.HCP figures show a 2.1 percent increase in food inflation in the 12 months through January, Reuters reported. The non-food price index rose 1.1 percent from the previous month.The Planning authority added that transportation expenses fell 2.8 percent while housing costs 4.9 percent. On a month-on-month basis, the consumer price index was steady in January at 0.3 percent. The food price index rose 1.1 percent on the month and non-food prices were down 0.4 percent. The recent figures indicate a reduction in the purchasing power of Moroccan families. But in November 2014, Head of government Abdelilah Benkirane said that he purchasing power of Moroccan families posted a rise of 3.7% between 2012 and 2013, which is due to the increase of households’ final registered consumption (+5.8) and controlling inflation (1.9) during the same period. read more

Millions vaccinated against yellow fever in Africa in record time – UN

CloseClick for an interactive timeline of Yellow Fever outbreak in AfricaThe UN health agency played a key role in ensuring the technical feasibility of the strategy, the availability of millions of vaccine doses, syringes and other materials, as well as maintaining the cold chain to ensure vaccines are stored and transported in the right conditions, as well as co-led the coordination efforts in the planning and implementation phases, trained health workers and engaged with communities and leaders in disseminating information about the campaigns. Other UN entities, including the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and its World Food Programme (WFP) were also an integral part of the campaign. UNICEF led social mobilizers on the ground to engage with communities and encourage people to get vaccinated, as well as helped ensure that vaccines and injection devices were in place. WFP provided temporary safe storage of the huge volumes of waste generated by this campaign that will be sent for incineration in mid-September. Other key partners include the non-governmental organizations Save the Children and Médecins sans Frontières; the Red Cross of the Democratic Republic of Congo; the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC); Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; and the World Bank. Continuing campaigns in DRC and AngolaThe WHO news release further noted that over the next few weeks, vaccination teams will focus on completing the campaign in remote border regions of the DRC, and reaching people at risk or those who may have missed out on the first round of vaccination. Also, in Angola, vaccination campaigns are ongoing, with an estimated three million people vaccinated since mid-August. These vaccinations are a major part of the largest emergency vaccination campaign against yellow fever ever attempted in Africa, the World Health Organization (WHO) highlighted in a news release today. “WHO commends the Government of the DRC for this significant achievement to roll out such a complex campaign in such a short period of time,” said the WHO Representative in the DRC, Dr. Yokouide Allarangar, in the release. According to the agency, planning a vaccination campaign of this scale usually takes up to six months, however, this campaign was put in place in a matter of weeks to end transmission of yellow fever before the rainy season starts in September. Furthermore, a “dose sparing” strategy – using one fifth of the full dose of yellow fever vaccine – was employed for this campaign, under the recommendation of the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization, as a short-term emergency measure to reach as many people as possible given limited supplies of the vaccine. WHO, along with the Ministry of Public Health and more than 50 global partners, worked closely together to roll out the vaccination drive in more than 8,000 locations across the DRC – both in dense, urban areas and in hard-to-reach, remote border regions, the agency said in the release. Female patients, who are suspected to have yellow fever, are treated in this room at the Hospital Geral de Luanda, Angola. WHO/Dalia Lourenço This latest campaign aims at building on previous emergency yellow fever reactive vaccination campaigns led by national governments that had already reached more than 13 million people in Angola and more than three million in the DRC since the beginning of the outbreak in December 2015. Since January this year, almost 1,000 people in both countries have had confirmed yellow fever, with many more suspected cases and more than 400 deaths reported. Though the outbreak in the two countries appears to be declining with no new cases confirmed in over a month, WHO said it is critical to continue providing support to ensure the countries have the capacity to detect and respond to any further cases of yellow fever, particularly because there may still be viral circulation in the mosquito vector, and in other animal reservoirs, as well as in anticipation of the upcoming rainy season that will result in increased risk of transmission. read more

Android Market gets an update Christmas come early

first_imgOne of the many things promised to the Android community during the last I/O conference was a new Market experience. We were given wonderful fantasies about better app discovery, a nice web store for when lifting our phones is just too much work, and a better looking app. One out of three isn’t bad, right? This weekend when many opened their Market, you were presented with a brand new EULA, and a shiny new Market to play with. What exactly changed with this Market anyway?This new Market client introduces important features that improve merchandising of applications, streamline the browse-to-purchase experience, and make it easier for developers to distribute their applications. The new Market has a definite UI update. It feels much cleaner, and allows for browsing of things inside an app (comments, rating, etc) much easier. After searching for a few apps, I can’t say that I feel that app discovery has changed any, though and while it’s certainly less work to go from finding an app to buying an app, there’s not any more information to help you decide if this is the app for you. I feel that for the Market to continue to improve, discovery and decision are the things that really need to improve.The next, and arguably most disturbing, significant change in the Market is the new limitation on the app returns. We’ve seen the app Market shift from 24 hour returns to 48 hour returns, offering customers the ability to use an app before completely choosing to purchase it. This update has restricted this ability down to 15 minutes. This change has brought about every type of response in the reaction spectrum. The angry claim that 15 minutes is not enough to fully appreciate an app. Maybe you’re picking a new virtual keyboard and 15 minutes is not enough. Will you be forced to purchase 4 or 5 keyboards before you make that decision? The biggest reason for this change I think is game developers. You play a game for two whole days, for some games that could be enough to beat it and then return it.It could be that this is only part of the reveal we will see with Gingerbread’s official release. Google’s proprietary bits aren’t available in the SDK, so it’s entirely likely that Google will stick to their original design for I/O. For now, however, the app Market still feels a little incomplete, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.last_img read more

Farmers are at their wits end Losing your land home and income

first_img 21,574 Views By Christina Finn Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Apr 9th 2017, 8:15 AM ‘Farmers are at their wit’s end’: Losing your land, home and income at the hands of vulture funds The IFA says if vulture funds come after farmers they’ll have to get to them through them first. It will spell the destruction of rural communities and lead to a further drain on mental health services. Banks are acting in a manner that is not acceptable, and they are piling stress and misery on embattled farmers.Farms that have been in families for generations are being sold off to vulture funds, she said, calling on strict legislation to govern vulture funds.Losing your land, home and income “Some banks are selling off agricultural debts to multinational property asset companies which subsequently demand immediate payment of monies owed. Fears are growing that an entire generation of farmers could be wiped out, stalling hopes of a sustainable rural recovery. Vast tracts of lands are now in the hands of vulture funds and farmers are under immense pressure. When farmers lose their land, they not only lose an asset but also their income,” said Black.In a bid to tackle the situation, the IFA has set out a framework for negotiations with vulture funds, which calls for no forced sale of farming assets which undermines the viability of the family farm, and where the farmer has meaningfully engaged to find a workable solution.The group called for a full and final agreement to be reached between the borrower and loan owner prior to the disposal of any assets, adding that assets must be sold for their full market value and with proper advertising. Source: Shutterstock/craigophotoLegislation to regulate While the IFA have outlined their key principles, Sinn Féin’s Pearse Doherty is calling for new legislation to be introduced to regulate vulture funds.The Consumer Protection (Regulation of Credit Servicing Firms) Bill 2017, which was moved by Doherty in the Dáil during the week, unopposed by government, could subject vulture funds to regulation for the first time.“In the past few years, banks have sold on the debts and mortgages of homeowners, small businesses, and farmers to unregulated vulture funds.“The vultures are wreaking havoc on our economy and communities. The policy of empowering them must be stopped,” said Doherty.“There is still no regulation in place for the actual owners of the credit. The companies they appoint to deal with consumers are regulated, but that approach has been criticised by the Central Bank and has proven inadequate,” said the Donegal TD.He called for cross-party support, adding that it was time to send out a message that “there will no longer be a free hand for vulture funds”.Read ‘Out of the blue, we got a letter to say our loans had been sold to a vulture fund’>Spanish inspiration? Anti-eviction movement heats up with bill to end loopholes used to evict tenants> Share Tweet Email1 center_img 55 Comments Short URL Source: Shutterstock/Daria FilimonovaVULTURE FUNDS ARE prepared to sell out the farm over the heads of the farmer.Fears are growing among an entire generation of farmers that their farms could be sold from under them, according to the Irish Farmers’ Association (IFA).The group who represent farmers is getting tough on vulture funds, stating that they want to send a strong and clear message out that anybody who tries to take on farmers who are genuinely attempting to resolve their credit difficulties is taking on the IFA.The number of farms in credit difficulty that will come to a head in the next year or two is set to increase, according to IFA Farm Business Chairman Martin Stapleton.The family farm He explained that unlike any other small or medium business, farmers use the equity in their land to invest in their farm – farms that have been in the family for decades.“Farmers are at their wit’s end. The people in these positions are going through the most emotional stress because they feel their life is being destroyed. The threat of losing the family farm, the family home, is too much to take,” he said.“Vulture funds want to exit the Irish market in a very short time frame of three years or less. This is unacceptable, as it leaves absolutely no scope for the borrower to propose a medium or longer term solution,” argued IFA President Joe Healy.“These funds are taking a short-term and ruthless approach to farmers whose loans they have acquired. We cannot have a situation where farmers could be forced to sell their land when restructuring arrangements would allow them to pay off their loans over time,” he said. Source: Shutterstock/morrisonStapleton said farmers just want to pay their debt in the long-term rather than the short-term, but vulture funds won’t accept that.The fear of the unknown “Stress is the hardest thing to quantify, but farmers in this situation are more stressed over the fear of the unknown,” he added. The issue has been raised in both the Dáil and Seanad in recent weeks.Senator Frances Black said stress and anxiety experienced by farmers in this situation has led to countless suicides. “We need to highlight the number of suicides that are directly linked to financial pressures from banks and financial institutions chasing their own debts,” she said.The activities of these vulture funds will wipe out a generation of farming. Young people lose interest in farming when they see the stress and anxiety that their parents are suffering. Sunday 9 Apr 2017, 8:15 AM http://jrnl.ie/3329461 last_img read more

Starkbucks Game of Thrones CoffeeCup Gaffe Lights Up Social Media

first_img“Things can get forgotten on set,” Richter wrote. He said the coffee cup error has been “so blown out of proportion [because] it has not happened with ‘Thrones’ so far.” Images from “Game of Thrones” season 4 showing Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) holding a coffee cup went viral in 2014, but those were from a behind-the-scenes clip and didn’t appear in the show itself.In its eighth and final season, “Game of Thrones” has had more than its share of social-media activity, as video from each of the first four episodes to date has leaked out ahead of HBO’s official release. On Sunday, scenes from episode 4, “The Last of the Starks,” showed up online in 30-second videos on Twitter and YouTube hours ahead of its premiere.Naturally, the coffee-cup goof in the latest episode became instant fodder for jokes and memes, with some wondering how many outlets Starbucks has in Westeros. Read a recap of the episode, titled “The Last of the Starks” (warning: includes spoilers).

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” season 8 episode 4 included a scene in which a takeout coffee cup — resembling the ubiquitous Starbucks containers — is clearly visible on a table in front of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) just before the 17:40 mark.The out-of-time-and-place cup, which can be seen for about two seconds, was spotted by “GOT” fans shortly after the episode aired Sunday. As of Monday morning, it was on Twitter’s top 10 trending topics. Also trending on Twitter was the hashtag “Starkbucks,” a nod to the unexpected blending of House Stark and the Seattle-based coffee chain (although it’s not clear whether or not the cup is actually from Starbucks).In an email to Variety, Hauke Richter, an art director for “Game of Thrones” seasons 4-8, said he had not yet seen Sunday night’s episode but noted that it’s not uncommon for such misplaced elements to mistakenly end up in the final cut of TV shows and movies.

Magnify text you write with BigType

first_imgMagnify text you write with BigType by Martin Brinkmann on April 08, 2018 in Software – Last Update: April 08, 2018 – 9 commentsBigType is a free portable accessibility software for Microsoft Windows devices that magnifies text you write automatically using a magnifier window.Visually impaired computer users have a couple of tools and options at their disposal to improve the display of text on the devices they use. They may be able to change the font size globally or in specific programs, or use helper applications like magnifiers to improve readability.BigType magnifies text you writeBigType is one of those helper applications. The program requires the Microsoft .NET Framework and will run on any version of Windows that support that version of the framework.Just download the application to your device, extract the archive that it is supplied as, and run the bigtype executable to start it.BigType displays its main interface on start which you use to toggle the functionality and configure some program settings.You may modify three core settings with a click on setup:Change the display time of the magnified text you wrote on the screen.Change the zoom depth of the magnified text.Switch to another position of the magnifier on the screen.Setup includes an option to change the size of the box the magnified text is displayed in and to restore all settings to the default value. A click on save completes the process; the new parameters are immediately active.You should notice that a box with magnified text is displayed to you when you type when BigType is enabled.

How to secure your crypto currency

first_imgManaging and earning cryptocurrency is a lot of hassle and losing it is a lot like losing yourself. While security of this blockchain based currency is a major concern, here is what you can do to secure your crypto fortune. With the ever fluctuating crypto-rates, every time, it’s now or never. While Bitcoin climbed up to $17,900 in the past, the digital currency frenzy is always in-trend and its security is crucial. No crypto geek wants to lose their currency due to malicious activities, negligence or any other reason. Before we delve into securing our crypto currencies, lets discuss the structure and strategy of this crypto vault that ensures the absolute security of a blockchain based digital currency. Why blockchains are secure, at least, in theory Below are the three core elements that contribute in making blockchain a fool proof digital technology. Public key cryptography Hashing Digital signatures Public Key Cryptography This cryptography involves two distinctive keys i.e., private and public keys. Both keys decrypt and encrypt data asymmetrically. Both have simultaneous dependency of data which is encrypted by a private key and can only be decrypted with the public key. Similarly, data decrypted by public key can only be decrypted by a private key. Various cryptography schemes including TLS (Transport Layer Security protocol) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) have this system at its core. The strategy works well with you putting in your public key into the world of blockchain and keeping your private key confidential, not revealing it on any platform or place. Hashing Also called a digest, the hash of a message gets calculated on the basis of the contents of a message. The hashing algorithm generates a hash that is created deterministically. Data of an arbitrary length acts an input to the hashing algorithm. The outcome of this complex process is known as a calculated amount of hash with a predefined length. Due to its deterministic nature, the input and output are the same. Considering mathematical calculations, it’s easy to convert a message into hash but when it comes to obtaining an original message from hash, it is tediously difficult. Digital Signatures A digital signature is an encrypted form of hash of a message and is an outcome of a private key. Anyone who has the access to the public key can break into the digital signature by decrypting it and this can be used to get the original hash. Anyone who can read the message can calculate the hash of a message on its own. The independently calculated hash can be compared with the decrypted hash to ensure both the hashes are the same. If they both match, it is a confirmation that the message remains unaltered from creation to reception. Additionally, it is a sign of a relating private key digitally signing the message. A hash is extracted from a message and if a message gets altered, it will produce a different type of hash. Note that it is complex to reverse the process to find the message of a hash but it’s easy to compute the hash of a message. A hash that is encrypted by a private key is known as digital signature. Anyone having a public key can decrypt a digital signature and they have the ability to compare the digital signature with a calculated hash of the message. If the value of an original message is active and the message is signed by the entity having the private key, it means that the hashes are identical. What are Crypto wallets and transactions Every crypto-wallet is a combined collection of single or more wallets. A crypto-wallet is a private key and it can create a public key too. By using a public key, a public wallet address can be easily created. This makes a cryptocurrency wallet a set of private keys. To enable sharing wallet address with the public, they are converted into QR codes eliminated the need to maintain secrecy. One can always show QR codes to the world without any hesitation and anyone can send cryptocurrency using that wallet address. However, a cryptocurrency transaction needs a private key and currency sent into a wallet is owned by the owner of the wallet. In order to transact using cryptocurrency, a transaction is created that is public information. A transaction of crypto currency is a collection of information a blockchain needs. The only needed data for a transaction is the destination wallet’s address and the desired amount to be transferred. While anyone can transact in cryptocurrency, the transactions are only permitted by the blockchain if it is assured by multiple members in the network. A transaction should be digitally signed by a private key in order to get a valid status or else, it would be treated as invalid. In other words, one signs a transaction with the private key and then it gets to the blockchain. Once the blockchain accepts the key by confirming the public key data, it gets included in the blockchain that validates the transaction. Why you should guard your private key An attack on your private key is an attempt to steal your cryptocurrency. By using your private keys, an attacker attempts to digitally sign transactions from your wallet address to their address. Moreover, an attacker can destroy your private keys thus ending your access to your crypto wallet. What are some risk factors involved in owning a crypto wallet Before we move on to creating a security wall around our crypto currency, it is important to know from whom we are protecting our digital currency or who can prove to be a threat for our crypto wallets. If you lose the access to your crypto currency, you have lost it all as there isn’t any ledger with a centralized authority and once you lose the access, you can’t regain it by any means. Since a crypto wallet is paired by a private and public key, losing the private key means losing your wallet. In other words, you don’t own any cryptocurrency. This is the very first and foremost threat. The next in line threat is what we hear often. Attackers, hackers or attempters who want to gain access to our cryptocurrency. The malfunctions may be opportunist or they may have their private intentions. Threats for your cryptocurrency Opportunist hackers are low profile attackers who get access to your laptop for transacting money to their public wallet address. Opportunist hackers doesn’t attack or target a person specifically, but if they get access to your crypto currency, they won’t shy away from taking your digital cash. Dedicated attackers, on the other hand, target single handedly or they may be in a group of hackers who work together for a sole purpose that is – stealing cryptocurrency. Their targets include every individual, crypto trader or even a crypto exchange. They initiate phishing campaigns and before executing the attack, they get well-versed with their target by conducting a pre-research. Level 2 attackers go for a broader approach and write malicious code that may steal private keys from a system if it gets attacked or infected. Another kind of hackers are backed by nation states. They are a collective group of people with top level coordination and established financials. They are motivated by gaining access to finances or their will. The crypto currency attacks by Lazarus Group, backed by the North Korea, are an example. How to Protect Your crypto wallet Regardless of the kind of threat, it is you and your private key that needs to be secured. Here’s how to ensure maximum security of your cryptocurrency. Throw away your access keys and you will lose your cryptocurrency forever. Obviously, you won’t do it ever and since the aforementioned thought came into your mind after reading the phrase, here are some other ways to secure your cryptocurrency fortune. Go through the complete password recovery process. This means going through the process of forgetting the password and creating a multi-factor token. These measures should be taken while setting up a new hosted wallet or else, be prepared to lose it all. No matter how fast the tech world progresses, basics will remain the same. You should have a printed paper backup of your keys and they should be placed in a secure location such as a bank’s locker or in a personal safe vault. Don’t forget to wipe out the printer’s memory after you are done with printing as printed files can be restored and re used to hack your digital money. Do not keeps those keys with you nor should you be hiding those keys in a closet that can get damaged due to fire, theft, etc. If your wallet has multi-signature enabled on it and has two public or private keys for the authorization of transactions, make it to three keys. While the third key will be controlled by an entrusted party, it will help you in the absence of a second person.

ITP to drive the hotelierstakeholder engagement process in Hong Kong

first_imgITP (International Tourism Partnership) is endeavouring to bring hoteliers and stakeholders together to identify and discuss the most pressing issues for the industry with special emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region.In cooperation with stakeholder engagement specialists GlobeScan, ITP has launched a six-month project following the GRI G4 process whereby 200 external stakeholders will engage through online surveys and telephone interviews to deliberate on social and environment issues that concern the hotel sector.The results will inform an exclusive event in Hong Kong this September where hoteliers can meet and collaborate on these issues with a range of stakeholders. Through the process, hoteliers will be able to connect with industry players to gain first-hand insights into sustainability issues in the region.Fran Hughes, ITP Director, said, “Stakeholder engagement is essential if a business wants to really understand the key issues and develop an effective corporate responsibility strategy. But stakeholders and hotel companies can sometimes struggle to start what can be difficult conversations on challenging issues. ITP bridges that gap by bringing different groups together in a neutral environment to share learning and work together to develop practical solutions. It’s a win-win for all sides.To be held on September 27, 2016, this event will provide a platform for sharing the learning of the 2016 stakeholder interviews with a select audience of ITP member hotel groups. Besides, invited non-member companies and stakeholders will also be present including representatives from academic organisations, certification bodies, corporate customers, franchisees, government, industry bodies, sustainable business organisations, investors, owners, suppliers, trade unions and other bodies.last_img read more

Is there a particular group that stood out to you

first_imgIs there a particular group that stood out to you and needs to improve?“No. 1 thing is turning over the football, 5-1, that’s an issue. I thought we played physical, and we knew it was going to be a physical game. But I would say probably on the back end, again with a little bit of miscommunication, again, when you hold Todd Gurley to 41 yards, I thought we were physical up front against the run. (Case Keenum) got the ball out quickly, and then there were some things again in coverage, whether it was in position to make a play and you don’t or it was a busted coverage or a missed tackle or two. I would say that the back-end probably didn’t play as good as other areas. I thought Deone Bucannon played well, I thought Kevin Minter made some mistakes, whether it was leverage in coverage and that sort of thing. There were signs in different areas that still makes me believe that No. 1, we still have a talented football team and No. 2, we have time on our hands yet at the same time we can’t mess around. We’re in a position that we all know, it better start changing quickly.”Do you think this team misses Rashad Johnson?  “No, I mean I think we have enough leaders back there and guys that can get people lined up and can do the right things, it’s just a matter of execution, no different offensively, as we’re trying to get the ball down field and so many times we were in position to make plays, and you have the ball on the 42 yard line, David Johnson fumbles. You have the ball on the three and you don’t score a touchdown, you know, you drive in and you throw an interception in the end zone. So there’s a number of things we continue to do to shoot ourselves in the foot, and they’re all reoccurring, and it’s surprising to me because we had a good practice last week, it was physical, felt like we had a good week of preparation, but that’s not carrying over to the field. We knew what type of game we were going to have yesterday, and again I think some of it was positive, because it reinforces the fact that there are some things we can do that will give people issues, but at the same time, finishing and minimizing mistakes is still an issue.” What did you think of the pass rush?“We created some pressure and again, (Keenum) got the ball out so quick. I would say one of the things that bothered me was when we got pressure, we’re doing a poor job of keeping our eyes up as we rush. We’re getting guys that are consumed in blocks, or creating pressure whether it’s speed to power or bull rushes, and now all of a sudden we’re giving a quarterback an opportunity to sidestep and get a lane and get out of the pocket, or to slide and find throwing lanes when we have pressure on him. So we got to do a better job of getting our eyes up and creating havoc and making it tougher for him to move around in the pocket.” When is it time to panic and what does it look like?“Panic to me is a word when you do things out of the realm, where you need to do things unorthodox, and I don’t think we need to do that. I think we have some good football players who need to play better, and guys who need to get their heads straight in terms of preparation off the field, the mental side of it. I think we played with urgency and physicality, this past game, it’s just like I said, the little things, attention to detail, which is hurting us.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo General manager Steve Keim joined Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, as he does every morning following a Cardinals game, to discuss what happened against the Rams and what the team needs to do to move on to Thursday night.What’s wrong with the Arizona Cardinals?“Well I’ll say this: I never envisioned this kind of start. I don’t know that anybody, fans or anybody in the organization would’ve envisioned this. In the past we have won home games, like the Patriots, and like this game, so we’re close. (1:30) We make critical mistakes at critical times, and instead of being 3-1 we’re sitting at 1-3. Now the difference is, is those were different teams and this is a different time. So now we’re facing adversity for the first time, this kind of adversity in the three years we’ve been together, and we’ll find out what we’re made of quickly. The tape yesterday was interesting because there were actually a lot of good things and I know that’s hard to believe. When you put up 420 yards against their 288, 26 first downs versus their 12, we did some good things, particularly against Todd Gurley, minimizing his yards, moving the ball up and down the field, again, some of the same things are plaguing us, which is difficult to deal with, whether it’s a blown coverage or giving up a big play. Marcus Cooper’s in position, he just doesn’t make a play on that ball. Tony Jefferson’s over top and slips, and there’s a big play for a touchdown. The list goes on of things that happen like that. Getting off the field on third down, those sort of things, and all of that needs to improve.” How do you feel about Robert Nkemdiche being inactive again?“Well he’s not 100 percent healthy, but there’s no doubt, he’s got to continue to grow and get better as a player, and again, more so the off field stuff of studying the game and understanding the defense and that sort of thing, but now that the ankle is getting better, hopefully we’ll see more of him.”How did the offensive line play?“Surprisingly when you study the tape, there were some guys who got beat, but I thought for the most part we played fairly well. It’s no secret that Aaron Donald and Robert Quinn are two of the better players in the National Football League, in fact, Aaron Donald is amazing, some of the things he can do. I thought we did a really good job in the run game, being physical, creating run lanes for (David Johnson) and Chris Johnson. In the pass game there was some pressure, there’s no doubt about it, but I think they gave Carson enough of a pocket, other than a few snaps, to be able to throw the football effectively.”What do you as the general manager do at 1-3? Do you get angry?“Yeah man I’m a competitor. There’s nothing about it that makes me happy. I’ve been here long enough to go through tough times, and to know that the past few years that we have a chance to create sustainable success, and I hold myself accountable as anybody and I’ve got to do a better job, and it’s OK to take this thing personal, it’s my job, and there’s no doubt that it starts Thursday night of getting back on track against the 49ers.” LISTEN: Steve Keim, Cardinals general manager Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson (21) breaks up a pass intended for Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brian Quick (83) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) What is Carson Palmer’s condition? “He went through the concussion protocol, but I haven’t talked to Tom Reed yet and our medical staff, so I will follow up this morning and find out a little bit later.”Is the team showing intensity during the week?“Well they certainly did last week, coach was all over them, and they played fast and they practiced physical. It was one of our more physical Wednesdays of the season for sure, but that’s got to continue to ramp up. Obviously we’re in a mode right now where we got to figure out what we’re doing wrong, and there’s no doubt we’re spending every second trying to figure that out. The good news for us again is that there’s a lot of football left to be played, as disappointed as all of us are. You can look at the positives and try to build on it, but there’s no doubt, there’s a lot of disappointment around here, both inside the building and with our fan base, and that should be expected.”Have you scheduled any meetings in hopes of finding out what’s wrong? “I personally don’t but I know Bruce (Arians) will. Bruce will talk to the captains and the leaders, and I know those guys will have some player-only meetings to make sure that they’re all on the same page. There was definitely anger in the locker room after the game, in a good way. In a way where, we have competitors in there and everybody needs to do a better job and look themselves in the mirror. We’re all accountable for this thing, we just got to get it back on track and play our brand of football, and our brand of football, even though it’s a different year, is to finish games like that, minimize mistakes and win at home. That’s embarrassing that we’ve lost two home games that were so close, knowing that our fans brought it and were there in full force for us.” Top Stories The Arizona Cardinals dropped their second home game of the season against the Los Angeles Rams, 17-13.The Rams scored the go-ahead touchdown following a big punt return from Tavon Austin with less than three minutes remaining. With Carson Palmer out due to a concussion, backup Drew Stanton was called upon, but he was unable to lead the Cards to a game-winning drive.Next up for the Cardinals is a Thursday night tilt with the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.
