UN envoy calls again for dialogue to resolve tensions in Lebanon

7 December 2010The United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon today reiterated his concern over the crisis that has put on hold the work of key national institutions, and called once again for dialogue to resolve existing tensions. “We continue to believe that all problems, no matter how sensitive, have to be resolved through dialogue and with all sides relying on the state institutions,” Michael Williams said in a statement in Beirut.His comments followed a meeting with the Speaker of the Lebanese Parliament, Nabih Berri, during which he was accompanied by General Alberto Asarta Cuevas, the Force Commander of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).The situation in Lebanon has been marked by rising tensions in recent months and described by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as a “domestic climate of uncertainty and fragility” in a report issued in October. “The country’s political leaders must focus on strengthening its sovereignty and independence as well as its institutions,” Mr. Ban stated in that report. Mr. Williams and Gen. Asarta also informed Mr. Berri about their joint visit last week to Israel to discuss the issue of a withdrawal of Israeli forces from the northern part of Ghajar, a village that straddles the so-called Blue Line separating Israel and Lebanon.Last month Israel announced its decision, in principle, to withdraw its army – the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) – from the area, which Mr. Ban welcomed as an important step towards the full implementation of Security Council resolution 1701, which brought to an end the 2006 conflict between Israel and the Lebanese group Hizbollah.“We believe this is an important development,” said Mr. Williams. “At the same time, as we explained to Speaker Berri today, the withdrawal of the IDF from northern Ghajar is but a first step towards resolving the status of Ghajar so that Lebanese sovereignty is fully restored over all Lebanese territory and that also the humanitarian requirements of the villagers are met.”Mr. Williams added that he and Gen. Asarta are planning to meet later this week with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and President Michel Sleiman. read more

Korean hackers may have had links with Sri Lankan beneficiaries

According to security experts at BAE Systems, the recent bank hack is reminiscent of the $81m (£61m)Bangladesh Bank cyberheist, with similar malware and hacking tools used to carry out the attack. The malware used in the Taiwan bank hack was the same previously used by Lazarus against banks in Poland and Mexico. In the Taiwan bank heist, the hackers also used a variant of the Hermes ransomware, presumably “as a distraction or cover-up”. Lazarus is believed to be the cybertool of the dictatorial regime of North Korea for making money for the impoverished country, as it faces increasing international sanctions amid rising tensions. Apart from being involved in various attacks against global banks, the group is also believed to have orchestrated the historic WannaCry ransomware epidemic. Security experts that previously uncovered the hacker group’s recent activities said Lazarus has also targeted ATMs and gambling sites, to make money for the Kim Jong-un regime. However, the Taiwan bank hack may indicate the group’s intention of once again targeting banks.“Despite their continued success in getting onto payment systems in banks, the Lazarus group still struggle getting the cash in the end, with payments being reversed soon after the attacks are uncovered. The group may be trying new tricks to disrupt victims and delay their ability to respond – such as different message formats, and the deployment of ransomware across the victim’s network as a smokescreen for their other activity,” the BAE Systems researchers said in a blog.“It’s likely they’ll continue their heist attempts against banks in the coming months and we expect they will evolve their modus operandi to incorporate new ways of disrupting victims (and possibly the wider community) from responding,” the researchers added. (Colombo Gazette) The proliferate North Korean state-sponsored hacker group Lazarus, believed to be behind numerous high-profile cyberattacks against global financial and government institutions, appears to have focused again on international banks.Lazarus is now suspected to have been behind the recent Taiwan bank cyberheist, which saw hackers steal millions from the Far East International Bank, ibtimes reported. The cyberattack on the bank involved hackers stealing money by compromising the bank’s SWIFT network. The stolen funds were then transferred to several overseas beneficiaries in Sri Lanka and Cambodia – countries where Lazarus’ bank heist activities have previously been detected. According to BAE Systems researchers, on 3 October, some of the stolen funds were transferred to the Bank of Ceylon. The very next day, an individual allegedly withdrew Rs 30m ($195,330; £147,350) from the bank. The unknown individual was arrested two days later when he allegedly returned to withdraw an additional Rs 8m ($52,000; 39,290).Although local reports stated that the hackers stole around $60m from the Taiwanese bank, the exact amount of the stolen funds is still unclear. The BAE Systems researchers said “the amounts actually stolen were considerably lower” and that the Far East International Bank has already recovered most of the stolen funds. read more

Sri Lankan authorities must work vigorously to ease simmering ethnoreligious tensions urges

“There is a serious deficit of trust among ethno-religious communities in Sri Lanka following the deadly Easter Sunday bomb blasts and subsequent mob violence this year, and these tensions must not be ignored,” Ahmed Shaheed, UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, said while presenting a report following his 12-day mission to the country.  Noting that the Government has taken some significant initiatives to strengthen its democracy and rule of law, the expert said that many religious communities remained very concerned about their security because of incitement to hatred and violence by some religious extremists. According to Mr. Shaheed, the main challenges to the right to freedom of religion or belief are religious and political violence, lack of accountability, distrust of institutions and resentment against perceived majoritarian privilege. “Failure by the State to take action to address incitement to hatred and violence will allow extremism to escalate and pose serious challenges to peacebuilding,” he said, adding that “the ethno-religious tension must not be treated as mere sporadic incidents.”  He further underscored that women’s experiences of ethno-religious hostility including violence, displacement and stereotyping must also be effectively addressed. “I call on the Government and all others to create an enabling environment for the exercise of fundamental freedoms, in the lead-up to elections and not to use ethno-religious tensions for electoral gain,” said Mr. Shaheed.  Special Rapporteurs and independent experts are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honourary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

75yearold woman cuts off Internet to Georgia and Armenia

first_imgA retired 75-year-old woman has single-handedly managed to cut off the Internet connection of two countries.She was digging around for scrap metal when she happened upon something far more valuable: Armenia and Georgia’s connection to the Internet. The interior ministry in Tbilisi said the woman hacked into a fibre-optic cable which runs through Georgia to Armenia, causing thousands of Internet users in both countries to lose connection for a few hours on March 28.Georgian interior ministry spokesman Zura Gvenetadze told the Associated Foreign Press that she found the cable and had intended to steal it. She was then found in the village of Ksani, north of Tbilisi, Georgia’s capitol, and has been charged with damaging property. The woman could be seeing up to three years of prison if convicted.Gvenetadze said the woman’s age has been taken into account and she has been released pending the end of the investigation and upcoming trial.The cable is owned by the Georgian Railway Telecom company, which clearly now has some major repair work to do. Hopefully that includes placing the new cable a little deeper underground. Although the connection has now been re-established, for 12 hours 90% of Armenia was without the web, and some ISPs in Georgia also went down. Gearogian Railway also owns cables in Azerbaijan, which were not effected.More at BBC News and Yahoo! NewsJennifer’s OpinionAlthough it may feel like it to some of us Generation-Y-ers, the Internet hasn’t been around forever. There are some people of a certain age that just don’t know much about the Internet and the hardware that goes along with it, like cables. My grandma doesn’t even own a computer, and she just got a cell phone for the first time a few months ago. The Georgian woman most likely had no idea that the cable she thought she’d get a few bucks for was actually the cord that connected thousands of people to the Internet.Is it really fair for her to get three years in prison at such an old age for something that was clearly an accident? Yes, she was trying to steal something, but she didn’t know the weight of what she was stealing. I think they should give this woman a break. What do you think?last_img read more

Mise au point dun yaourt favorisant la perte de poids

first_imgMise au point d’un yaourt favorisant la perte de poidsEn Irlande, des chercheurs seraient parvenus à mettre au point un yaourt qui aurait la capacité de favoriser la perte de poids, et cela à travers une bactérie génétiquement modifiée.Les chercheurs à l’origine de cette découverte sont des nutritionnistes. Ils ont ainsi étudié la composition d’un yaourt et se sont particulièrement penchés sur le Lactobacillus. Cette bactérie d’acide lactique est notamment en charge de la fabrication des acides gras polyinsaturés, rapporte le site 7sur7. Les scientifiques ont alors choisi de modifier un gène de cette bactérie en question afin de créer une bactérie génétiquement modifiée dont la fonction serait de détruire les graisses de l’organisme.Pour valider cette modification génétique, la nouvelle bactérie a été soumise à un groupe de souris tandis qu’un autre groupe de rongeurs servait de point de comparaison. Après absorption de la bactérie génétiquement modifiée, les souris disposaient de quatre fois plus d’acides gras polyinsaturés que les souris du groupe témoin. Ainsi, Catherie Stanton, en charge de l’étude, a expliqué : “La graisse est ainsi plus vite brûlée et cela semble également freiner la croissance des cellules cancéreuses dans le gros intestin”. Une nouvelle qui pourrait bien révolutionner le monde des régimes et de la recherche médicale.Le 17 janvier 2011 à 19:28 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Detective Pikachu Gets a Western Release Huge Amiibo

first_img We know that a live-action Detective Pikachu movie is in the works. Perhaps it’s no surprise the game which inspired the film is finally being released in the West. This isn’t a regular release either, as the 3DS title will have functionality with an oversized amiibo figure.Though the game is called Detective Pikachu, players actually control a boy named Tim Goodman. Tim, along with a talkative, coffee-loving Pikachu, solve mysteries in Ryme City. As players progress, they’ll meet many characters, and of course, other Pokémon. The duo’s ultimate goal is to find Tim’s missing father. You can see what the game is about in the video below.As you can see, this is unlike any Pokémon game you’ve ever played. Instead of battling other pocket monsters, players must search for clues by examining the environment. Pikachu shouts “A bolt of brilliance!” whenever enough clues are gathered to further the case. The whole thing is very odd, but I suppose we should give the game props for bringing something decidedly different to the franchise.Expect a giant amiibo figure to release alongside the game. The amiibo allows players to view all of the “Pika Prompts” cutscenes from chapters they’ve completed. This even includes prompts they previously missed. This sounds like a handy tool for completionists. If nothing else, the gargantuan amiibo should make a fine addition to one’s amiibo collection.There was no mention of any upcoming 3DS games during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct. This could mean Nintendo is (finally) ramping down support for its popular handheld. If that’s the case, Detective Pikachu may very well be one of the last big releases for the device this year. Outside of this game, Kirby Battle Royale, and Dragon Quest XI, there isn’t much on the horizon for 3DS in 2018.Detective Pikachu comes to a 3DS near you on March 23.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

What Kim Kardashian Liking Anime Means For Geek Culture

first_img While we’re not really on board with claims of “breaking the Internet,” Kim Kardashian West has a knack for getting people’s attention. Most recently, this came on Twitter when in a response to somebody’s comment about her “pink hair and funky fits” she announced that she was “obsessed with anime.”I am obsessed with anime. That was legit my inspo https://t.co/l3wVdwGyeN— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 28, 2018This comes hot on the heels of a bunch of Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan’s old anime-centric tweets being dug up – the dude is really into Naruto and Bleach, among others.this is where I get all my ANIME @AnimeAvenue that new naruto shippuuden just dropped..yea I’m into anime I love this shit!— Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan) March 25, 2011 Stay on target Kim Kardashian is like the girl who used to bully you in school for liking anime and then says shit like this because it’s now popular. https://t.co/OnEBVPmXUt— Noodle (@SailorSlob) February 28, 2018This pushback against mainstream celebrities being into anime illustrates one of the greatest weaknesses of the geek community – our tendency to be exclusive in a negative way. The implication that Kardashian is a “fake geek girl” who can’t name five anime series that she watches is a classic example of something that’s been happening for years, as self-declared gatekeepers of a fandom struggle to come to terms with its expanding popularity.We’ve seen it happen with comic books, as ranting YouTube men bluster about unqualified “diversity hires” even as Marvel movies soar to the top of the box office. We’ve seen it happen with video games as female streamers get excoriated by anonymous commenters who aren’t satisfied with their skills or cleavage. It’s not surprising that anime would have the same idiotic backlash brewing.But why shouldn’t Kim K. like anime? She grew up with it, just like we all did. Sailor Moon hit American screens in 1995. Just because she’s rich doesn’t mean she got different cartoons on TV as a kid. She’s a globetrotter deeply plugged into world cultural trends. It would be more surprising at this point if she didn’t know what it was. Just because you don’t like her – and there are plenty of valid reasons not to – is no excuse to assume that she’s ignorant.One of the most frustrating holdovers in geek culture is the myth of scarcity. In the pre-digital days, getting ahold of anime often meant ordering it through the mail, often subtitled by fans from grainy VHS dubs. Finding back issues of comics meant digging through longboxes hoping to strike gold. And video games didn’t steam themselves right to your PC. Physical media was limited, and if somebody else got it it often meant you didn’t.That scarcity is gone. Media can be duplicated infinitely in the digital era, and it’s only a matter of time before even the most obscure anime series hits a streaming service or a torrent. The only limit to fandom now is enthusiasm – if you like something enough, you can find it. And plenty of people are.Husband Kanye West has also expressed his love for Japanese cartoons, once tweeting that Akira was one of his two favorite movies (the other was There Will Be Blood). The list of rappers who don’t like anime is probably longer than those who do. Jaden Smith voiced the lead character on Netflix’s Neo Yokio and Lil Yachty sampled Cowboy Bebop. The cool kids like anime, and have for quite some time. Anime has been pop culture for decades. This great piece by Gita Jackson at Kotaku on Dragon Ball‘s resonance in the Black community is another example.Fans of a cultural product naturally assume that other fans are like them – that they share the same ideas, opinions and background. But anime is way beyond that now. It’s a truly global phenomenon that’s mutated and evolved, and the audience has come with it.Geek’s editor-in-chief, Sheilah Villari sent me an interview she conducted with LeSean Thomas, the producer on shows like The Legend of Korra and The Boondocks. Here he talked about how “When it becomes bigger than their secret, then they feel like they have to be defensive, because they feel like they’re losing it… Meanwhile, nobody in Japan gives a f*ck about any of this stuff; they’re like ‘whatever, Frozen is anime.”Anime is for everyone, no matter how deep you’re into it. Maybe Kim’s only seen Sailor Moon, or maybe she’s maxed out her Crunchyroll bandwidth. It shouldn’t matter either way.A rising tide lifts all butts… I mean boats. Increased public attention to anime means more people will watch it, which will inspire studios to make more of it. If you’re a real fan, that’s the outcome you should want anyways. The creators of anime series didn’t ask you to decide who can enjoy them and who can’t. They want their work to be seen by everybody from the weebiest otaku to the beefiest jock. And if a Kardashian inspires some fan in the midwest to stream a cartoon she’s never watched before, that’s a win.Now if Kim says she likes dubs over subs, we might have a problem.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. wow… i‘m looking forward to see all those fake anime and manga fans treating it as a fashion trend as they did with marvel and dc.. smh — Kevin Pantellaro (@PantellaroKevin) February 28, 2018center_img The reaction from fandom has been… not great. While Jordan’s love of anime has been met with some light mockery (compounded by the fact that dude still lives in the same house as his parents), Kardashian is getting it a lot harder.Ok Kim name 5 animes you’ve watched— Jarred (@JarredYnwa) February 28, 2018 Finally, Ash Ketchum Is A Pokemon Master‘One Punch Man’ Get A Video Game, Probably Has More Punches last_img read more

Busy Corridor Near Hobby Airport Gets A Makeover In Time For Super

first_img Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:10 X – / 8The city of Houston recently rebuilt Broadway Street, the four-lane corridor that leads from I-45 to Hobby Airport. But the project didn’t include landscaping.So that’s where Scenic Houston came in. The nonprofit raised over $6 million for improvements along the corridor. That included over 400 new trees, new lighting and crosswalks, and a walking path along the median.  Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says those improvements should make a strong impression.“Even after the Super Bowl and those coming specifically for the Super Bowl have left our city, the improvements, the new look of Broadway, remains for all Houstonians who remain in our city,” says Turner. Much of Broadway is lined by apartment complexes that are home to hundreds of families, and many of those people get around by walking and using transit. And officials admit the neighborhood suffered from years of neglect. Scenic Houston’s Harry Masterson says he sees the improvements as lifting the neighborhood’s spirit. “And people are out and about and they’re walking up and down and they see each other,” adds Masterson. “It’s a great central part of the neighborhood.”Based on the success of the Broadway initiative, Masterson says he’s now hearing from other neighborhoods that want to take on the same kind of beautification efforts.

Many Texans Are Skipping Health Care They Need Because Of The Cost

first_img Share GABRIEL C. PéREZ / KUTMany Texans are struggling to afford health care, according to a new surveyreleased by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Episcopal Health Foundation.The study found more than half of those surveyed (55 percent) said it is difficult for them and their families to afford health care; a quarter said it is “very difficult.”Furthermore, 3 out of 5 people surveyed reported foregoing or postponing care because of the cost. Those same people said they or a family member have at one point skipped getting dental care, postponed needed medical care, skipped a recommended test or treatment, not filled a prescription, cut pills in half or skipped doses, or faced obstacles getting mental health care.KERA “These are really unfortunate choices that people have to make because of the high cost of health care for people who are insured and uninsured,” said Elena Marks, president and CEO of the Episcopal Health Foundation.Marks also said health care affordability issues are worse in Texas than in the rest of the country, largely because many people here don’t have health insurance. For example, she said, 61 percent of Texans surveyed said they have skipped or postponed medical care because of cost. Nationwide the average is 48 percent.“Because we have the highest percentage and highest number of uninsured adults in Texas, it’s not surprising that we would have higher than the national average people reporting skipping care or being unable to afford care,” Marks said. “The problems are bigger in Texas.”KERACost is also what’s keeping many people from getting insured. According to the survey, half of uninsured Texans say the main reason they do not have insurance is because it’s too expensive. That’s compared to 15 percent of people who cite employment issues, 7 percent who say they don’t want it and 7 percent who cite citizenship/residency issues.  Health care also topped the list of financial concerns for Texans. Comparatively, fewer people expressed concerns about being able to afford housing, utilities, transportation or food.last_img read more

Australias Newest BIG Thing hits the NSW Southern Pielands

first_imgAustralia’s Newest BIG Thing hits the NSW Southern Pie-landsThe BIG Pie – Australia’s Newest BIG Thing hits the NSW Southern Pie-landsThe Southern Highlands is the home of Australia’s newest Big Thing with the creation of ‘The BIG Pie’ now located at the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre in Mittagong NSW. The Big Pie has been erected in recognition that the Southern ‘Pie-lands’ is Australia’s Home of Pies as the region celebrates the month-long Pie Time festivities during June.Not dwelling on the region’s disappointment last year at being a runner up with its Big Tulip finalist entry in leading online travel company WOTIF’s 18th Birthday Promotion ‘The Next Big Thing’ which got Australians to vote where they should build Australia’ next oversized tourist attraction, Destination Southern Highlands has now created its very own ‘Big Thing’ in the form of a giant sized orange pie.Destination Southern Highlands’ Group Manager, Steve Rosa said, “We initially submitted an entry for the Big Pie in WOTIF’s promotion to recognize our positioning in the last two years as Australia’s Home of Pies with our innovative and award-winning destination marketing campaign Pie Time, but were advised there was already a big pie constructed on the Gold Coast in Queensland. It was then that we submitted an entry for recognition as Australia home of Tulips via Australia’s oldest Tulip Festival, Tulip Time. Whilst we were a little disappointed at not winning, we still wanted to have Australia’s ‘Next Big Thing’ to be based in the Southern Highlands. But, one thing that came out of our entry was the great support we had for a possible big thing that could support our other big tourist attraction, the Big Potato in Robertson.”The Big Pie sits at over 2 metres wide by 1.5 high and is this month welcoming pie lovers to the Southern Pie-lands for the month of June. The stylized pie design and bright orange colour is reflective of Pie Time’s colour palette and imagery.  The Big Pie was created from a local wine pressing vat and is a now a magnet for photographers and selfie moments for both locals and visitors. Following Pie Time ‘The Big Pie’ will be positioned in the forecourt of the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre to promote the year-round Southern Highlands Pie Trail.
