Ottawa whacked by tribunal over historical BC First Nations case on Trudeaus

first_imgJorge Barrera APTN National NewsOn Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s first full day in power a federal tribunal smacked Ottawa for breaching its fiduciary obligation to two British Columbia First Nations.The Specific Claims Tribunal (SCT), created to handle First Nation historical grievances over loss of land or mishandling of trust funds, issued a ruling Thursday against Ottawa in a case involving the Blueberry and Doig River First Nations and the Crown’s failure to secure subsurface rights from the province for their replacement reserves.While the case landed on the lap of the tribunal as a result of the previous Conservative government’s decision to reject the claim, it provides an example of the types of complex and historical Indigenous issues the new Trudeau Liberal government will now be forced to handle. The Trudeau government was officially sworn-in on Wednesday.The ruling by Justice Larry Whalen, a part-time judge with the tribunal, found that Ottawa breached its fiduciary obligations by failing to secure subsurface rights when it obtained land from the B.C to give the Dunne-za Cree bands replacement reserves following the surrender of their originally set-aside territory in the mid-1940s.“Canada had believed it had acquired the subsurface rights in the replacement reserves and discovered its error only after issuing mineral exploration permits to a third party,” wrote Whalen in the ruling. “Canada’s failure to investigate the nature and quality of the title it was acquiring on behalf of the band was a breach of fiduciary duty. Canada’s failure to inform the band of the nature and quality of that title, to explain the practical consequences of the reservation of subsurface rights and to consult the band on its wishes under those circumstances constitutes a further breach of fiduciary duty.”Whalen found that Ottawa did nothing to rectify the situation even after discovering its error.Whalen also ordered the start of a case management process to determine compensation to the bands for the loss of those subsurface rights.If it stands, the ruling could end up costing Ottawa up to hundreds of of millions of dollars. A previous Supreme Court of Canada decision on another aspect of this case—the loss of mineral subsurface rights to their original reserve—led to the bands receiving about $147 million in compensation.Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, who was a former Assembly of First Nations regional chief for B.C., will now have to determine whether Ottawa will challenge the ruling through a judicial review before the Federal Court.The federal Justice department has already challenged at least two previous SCT rulings.The ruling also casts a spotlight on the tribunal, which was slowly being squeezed by the Conservative government.The tribunal is severely understaffed and needs additional judges to handle its bulging work load which currently includes about 67 cases. The tribunal is currently operating with only one full-time judge and two part-time judges. Under the legislation that created it, the tribunal was designed to operate with six full-time equivalent judgesThe Conservative government, which created the SCT, refused to appoint additional judges, despite dire warnings from the tribunal’s chair Justice Harry Slade that it was on the brink of failure.The fate of the tribunal, which is a going concern for B.C. First Nations which make up a large portion of specific claims cases, will now be in the hands of Wilson-Raybould.Like many of these specific claims cases, the roots of the Doig River and Blueberry First Nation claim stretch back over the decades.When the Dunne-za Cree people—who lived a nomadic lifestyle hunting, fishing and trapping across a region north of what is known today as Fort St. John, B.C.—adhered to Treaty 8 in 1900 they were given 7,352 hectares of land known as the Montney reserve. They became known as the St. John Beaver Band. While the reserve was set in prime agricultural land near non-Indigenous communities, the Dunne-za chose to continue pursuing their traditional ways of life in territory north of their new reserve.In 1945, the St. John Beaver Band surrendered their reserve to the Crown which promised to provide benefits to the Dunne-za Cree from the sale and lease of the land.The Crown then sold the surface and subsurface rights to the land, which was distributed to veterans coming back from the Second World War. In 1950, the Crown acquired land from the province for the replacement reserves, but did not secure the subsurface rights.By 1976, oil was discovered beneath the old Montney reserve “to the great benefit of some of the veterans and a petroleum exploration company,” wrote Whalen.By this time, the St. John Beaver Band was now divided into the Blueberry and Doig River First Nations. They took the government to Federal Court over the Crown’s decision to sell-off their old reserve lands’ subsurface rights. The case finally concluded with the financial settlement in the mid-1990s.Doig River First Nation then filed a specific claim against Ottawa over the Crown’s failure to secure subsurface rights to their replacement reserve lands in April 1999. The claim was rejected for negotiation by former Conservative Aboriginal affairs minister Chuck Strahl in 2009.Doig then took the claim to the tribunal which notified Blueberry First Nation it was taking on the case. Ottawa opposed Blueberry’s decision to join.The tribunal ordered the band’s addition to the claim.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

The Latest Spains Cabinet arrives at Barcelona palace

first_imgBARCELONA, Spain — The Latest on Spanish Cabinet meeting being held in Barcelona (all times local):10:30 a.m.Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Spanish Cabinet members have arrived in a central Barcelona palace for a weekly Cabinet meeting that has been moved to the Catalan capital despite separatists’ protests against it.Sanchez’s Socialist administration planned the meeting to convey an image of normalcy, but tension remains high in Catalonia despite progress in talks on Thursday with the pro-secession president of the northeastern region.Some scuffles have broken out on Friday in central Barcelona between pro-independence protesters trying to reach the venue of the Cabinet meeting and police trying to stop them.The regional Mossos d’Esquadra police force says that one protester has been arrested for public disorder near the headquarters of Spain’s National Police in a downtown avenue.The meeting normally takes place in Madrid, but Sanchez has vowed to take it to other Spanish cities as a gesture of commitment to decentralization.___7:40 a.m.Catalan authorities say protesters angry about Spain’s Cabinet holding a meeting in Barcelona have blocked a major highway and dozens of roads, disrupting traffic to and from the city.Pro-independence protesters called the protests to show their disgust at Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s decision to lead the weekly Cabinet meeting in Barcelona.Security in the prosperous northeastern region, normally in the hands of the Catalan police, has been reinforced with hundreds of anti-riot officers from Spain’s national police force.Sanchez has agreed with the pro-secession leader of the region, Quim Torra, to work on finding a solution to the political crisis that has festered since Catalonia’s failed secession attempt last year. Their meeting on Thursday was only the second since both took power earlier this year.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Canadian labour leader Bob White dead instrumental in creating CAW

TORONTO – Canadian labour leader Bob White, who was instrumental in creating the Canadian Auto Workers union, has died at the age of 81.White, who passed away Sunday in Kincardine, Ont., led the movement that saw the Canadian branch of the United Auto Workers break away from its American parent in the mid-1980s to establish the CAW.His death was announced by Unifor — created in 2013 from the combination of the CAW and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers union — which said he “passed away peacefully” without specifying the cause of his death.“Bob was a true maverick in the Canadian labour movement,” Unifor president Jerry Dias said in a statement.“The CAW was born as a result of his determination and leadership, it is thanks to Bob that we have grown into the strong national union that we are today.”“Bob White’s legacy is a stronger and more equitable Canada, and a labour movement that stands up for Canadian workers.”White was elected the CAW’s founding president in 1985, and again in 1988 and 1991 — during a period of time when the union was at the height of its power, representing most of the Canadian employees of the big U.S. automakers.After leaving the CAW, White was national president of the Canadian Labour Congress, which represents most of the country’s biggest unions.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version said White was re-elected CAW president in 1998 when in fact he was elected in 1988. by The Canadian Press Posted Feb 20, 2017 11:21 am MDT Last Updated Feb 20, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Canadian Labour Congress president Bob White is interviewed on Parliament Hill in Ottawa in a March 23, 1999 file photo.

Nanisme un traitement se révèle efficace chez la souris

first_imgNanisme : un traitement se révèle efficace chez la sourisUne équipe de biologistes de l’Inserm a réussi à mettre au point un traitement capable de soigner le nanisme chez la souris. Cette découverte représente un grand espoir pour traiter une maladie génétique rare chez l’homme : l’achondroplasie.L’achondroplasie est une maladie génétique qui concerne un enfant sur 15.000. Cette pathologie est à l’origine de 75% des cas de nanisme puisqu’elle entraîne un blocage de la croissance osseuse. Ainsi, les personnes qui souffrent de cette maladie présentent des membres et un crâne de petite taille et, à l’âge adulte, ils ne mesurent pas plus d’1,35 m. Le gène mutant responsable de l’achondroplasie est le FGF R3 (Fibroblast growth factor 3). Il est en principe chargé de coder une protéine qui est un récepteur exerçant un rôle dans la régulation de la croissance osseuse. Chez les malades, l’interaction entre ce récepteur et le facteur de croissance ne fonctionne plus. Des chercheurs de l’Inserm travaillant au Centre méditerranéen de médecine moléculaire de Nice se sont intéressés de près à ce problème. Ils ont ainsi trouvé le moyen de contourner ce dysfonctionnement. Rétablir la croissance L’étude a été menée sur des souris naines présentant les mêmes caractéristiques que les hommes frappés d’achondroplasie, à savoir un défaut de développement des membres et de certains os du crâne. “Nous avons mis en évidence chez ces souris une déficience en une protéine, et montré que ce défaut était responsable des anomalies de croissance”, explique Elvire Gouze, principal auteur de l’étude parue mercredi dans Science Translational Medicine.L’expérience a consisté à injecter à ces souris un grand nombre de récepteurs FGF R3 humains. Cela permettait au facteur de croissance de se fixer normalement, rétablissant ainsi la croissance des os telle qu’elle s’effectue habituellement chez le nouveau-né. Les souris ont été traitées à raison de deux injections par semaine dès l’âge de 2 jours et pendant les trois premières semaines de leur vie “ce qui correspond chez l’homme à la période conduisant à la puberté”, indique la chercheuse.Or, les résultats se sont avérés extrêmement prometteurs puisque une grande majorité des souris ont grandi normalement, atteignant une taille adulte moyenne. “On est parvenu à restaurer pleinement la croissance”, indique Elvire Gouze . De plus, durant les 8 mois suivant l’arrêt du traitement, les chercheurs n’ont observé ni complications, ni de signes de toxicité à court terme chez les rongeurs. “On a réussi à empêcher la survenue de complications, des malformations de la colonne vertébrale en particulier, qui chez l’homme, justifient des chirurgies très lourdes”, ajoute la scientifique citée par Nice Matin.Des questions en suspensÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Le produit que nous avons testé dispose d’atouts majeurs par rapport à ceux testés dans d’autres études, aux États-Unis par exemple?: sa durée de vie (16 heures) dans l’organisme est suffisamment longue pour ne pas nécessiter d’injections quotidiennes. Nous pensons que notre approche pourrait être efficace pour traiter les enfants atteints d’achondroplasie et peut être d’autres formes de nanisme”, juge ainsi Mme Gouze citée par La Croix. Bien que des essais humains soient envisagés, les scientifiques devront encore vérifier que ce traitement n’entraîne pas de toxicité, à long terme cette fois. De même ils devront déterminer quelle est la dose minimale efficace chez l’homme. Enfin, il faudra découvrir s’il est possible de traiter les malades tardivement après la naissance. “Une question médicale et éthique, car il n’est pas évident que des personnes souffrant de nanisme acceptent de grandir normalement au bout de plusieurs années, leur identité psychologique et sociale s’étant forgée autour de leur petite taille”, souligne ainsi Patrick Petit-Jean, vice-président de l’Association des personnes de petite taille (APPT).Le 19 septembre 2013 à 20:13 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Jon Snow was back in the newly established Night’s Watch. Arya decided to go on high-seas adventures. The north became its own kingdom, meaning Sansa got to be queen in the north. Sure, whatever. That makes sense. And after a bit of discussion and a walk through the carnage, Tyrion Lannister gave up his brooch. He didn’t wanna be the hand/sheriff no more. Then there was a lengthy, but also pretty well-acted scene where Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow reasoned out the pros and cons of absolutely stabbing Daenerys Targaryen in the back for her insane war crimes.  You mean to tell me after all that, the iron throne is melted down and now no one can have it #GameOfThrones #GameOfThronesFinale pic.twitter.com/1Kg8tYoFd0— Jake (@jakejenkinsss) May 20, 2019 Damn Drogon mourning has got me feeling some kinda way.

Students Rally In Houston Demanding Release Of Peer Recently Detained By ICE

first_img Share According to a statement from the Houston Independent School District (HISD), officers with its police department arrested Dennis Rivera-Sarmiento, a 19 year-old Honduran national, in late January after responding to a “reported assault of a female student across the street from the Austin High School campus.”The HISD statement added that “a verbal exchange” between Rivera-Sarmiento and a female student “led to a physical confrontation” that caused the female student being taken to the hospital.The HISD Police transferred custody of Rivera-Sarmiento to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) and, according to Leticia Zamarripa, a spokeswoman with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), ICE agents lodged a detainer request with the HCSO on January 31st and the Sheriff’s Office transferred custody to the federal agency that same day.Zamarripa detailed that charges of assault causing bodily injury had been filed against Rivera-Sarmiento, who entered the United States illegally in March 2013.The ICE spokeswoman added that Rivera-Sarmiento had been released on an order of supervision and was supposed to depart the country on or before March 5, 2014.The rally, which was in part coordinated by members of United We Dream (UWD) –the country’s largest ‘dreamer’ organization—, took place around noon with the crowd gathering outside of the school and marching around it, partly watched by Houston ISD Police officers.They carried banners with slogans such as “Free Dennis”, “Education Not Deportations” and “Black Latino Unity”, and chanted slogans with words such as “undocumented, unafraid”, and also criticized President Donald Trump.Some of the students that participated in the “action,” as defined by UWD, demanded that schools create “safe spaces” for students.UWD is sponsoring an online petition that at this point has over 9,000 supporters asking for the release of Rivera-Sarmiento and arguing that he was defending himself the day he was arrested “after he was repeatedly bullied by his classmates” for being undocumented.

UPDATE Senate Rejects Trump Immigration Measure

first_imgAPSen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., leaves the chamber after a speech which criticized President Donald Trump’s immigration policy and supported “Dreamers,” young immigrants helped by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)THE LATEST on immigration legislation in Congress (all times local):The Senate has rejected President Donald Trump’s immigration bill. That means the chamber has now rejected four separate immigration proposals, suggesting that its long-awaited debate on the issue could well end in gridlock.The vote on Trump’s proposal was 30-60, well below the 60 votes needed for approval.Trump had proposed creating a 10- to 12-year path to citizenship for young immigrant “Dreamers,” a concession to Democrats. In exchange, he sought a quick infusion of $25 billion to build his wall and other border security steps, tightened restrictions on relatives that legal immigrants could sponsor for citizenship and an end to a visa lottery aimed at boosting diversity among immigrants.Democrats and many Republicans opposed Trump’s wall spending and curbs on immigrants’ relatives.____3:47 p.m.The Senate has blocked a bipartisan proposal that would have provided 1.8 million young immigrants a chance for citizenship and $25 billion for a border wall.The bill was crafted by moderate Republicans and Democrats billing themselves as the “Common Sense Coalition.” They described the proposal as having the most bipartisan support in the Senate, but it came under fire from the White House and the Department of Homeland Security.The vote was 54-45, six votes short of the 60 needed to advance.The moderates’ measure does not alter a lottery that distributes about 55,000 visas annually to people from diverse countries. Trump has proposed ending it and redistributing its visas to other immigrants.The group spent weeks trying to craft a middle ground on the thorny immigration issue.____3:42 p.m.The Senate has rejected legislation targeting cities that don’t fully comply with federal authorities in enforcing immigration law.The legislation from Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., would block federal grants to so-called “sanctuary cities.”The Senate rejected the amendment by a vote of 54-45, six short of the 60 needed for passage.It was one of four proposals the Senate considered Thursday in an effort pass an immigration bill.Toomey says the policies of sanctuary cities endanger all residents by conferring a special protection to illegal immigrants.But officials from sanctuary cities say their policies foster trust with minority groups and encourage them to report crimes and come forward as witnesses.____3:04 p.m.The Senate has finally started voting on rival immigration proposals.And in the first roll call, it has blocked a narrow measure by Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons. The vote was 52-47 — eight short of the 60 votes needed to pass.The proposal would protect around 1.8 million young “Dreamer” immigrants from deportation and direct the government to gain better control of the U.S.-Mexico border by 2020. But it doesn’t give the Dreamers their own way to gain citizenship, and it doesn’t explicitly provide the $25 billion President Donald Trump wants for a border wall.The Senate also plans to vote on a bipartisan compromise that helps Dreamers and provides the border security money Trump wants. It will also vote on the president’s plan, which also clamps restrictions on legal immigration.____2:40 p.m.President Donald Trump says a bipartisan immigration compromise in the Senate would be a “total catastrophe,” adding to his earlier veto threat of the bill.The president says on Twitter that it would create “a giant amnesty (including for dangerous criminals)” and would fail to achieve some of his main goals, including the building of a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.Trump tweets that voting for the amendment “would be a vote AGAINST law enforcement, and a vote FOR open borders.” He is reiterating his support for a bill by Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, which includes many of the immigration principles he’s put forward.____2:05 p.m.The Senate plans to begin voting at 2:30 p.m. on four dueling immigration proposals.A sweeping plan by President Donald Trump seemed sure to fail. It would help 1.8 million young “Dreamer” immigrants become citizens, provide $25 billion to build his proposed border wall with Mexico and tighten current legal immigration rules.Also lined up for a vote is a proposal by a bipartisan group of senators that would match Trump’s plans on Dreamers and provide border security money, but is less restrictive on legal immigration. The White House has threatened to veto that measure, saying it would dangerously loosen protections against illegal immigration. Its fate was uncertain.____1:24 p.m.A bipartisan group of senators pitching an immigration bill is pushing back against criticism from the Trump administration.The senators are backing the spending of $25 billion on border security improvements and a pathway to citizenship for about 1.8 million immigrants brought into the country as children. The senators say their proposal is focused on a narrow set of problems and is not designed to serve as comprehensive immigration reform.But Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine says the amendment is the only legislation in the Senate with broad, bipartisan support.Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is pleading with the president to shut out some of the critics on both sides of the issue. He says, “this is the best shot you’ll ever get.”____12:30 p.m.The White House is threatening to veto a bipartisan Senate immigration proposal and says the emerging deal would “produce a flood of new illegal immigration in the coming months.”The Senate’s debate on immigration is aimed at finding a way to help young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children who risk deportation because they lack permanent authorization to stay in the country.The White House says the proposal would “would undermine the safety and security of American families and impede economic growth for American workers.”Republicans are backing a plan that offers a chance for citizenship for up to 1.8 million young “Dreamer” immigrants, as well as providing $25 billion for the president’s proposed wall with Mexico and restricting legal immigration.Democrats prefer a bipartisan plan that helps the Dreamers but doles out the wall money slowly and has far milder curbs on legal immigration.___11:45 a.m.The Senate’s party leaders are pointing fingers of blame amid growing doubts that any immigration proposals will get enough votes to survive.Showdown votes may come Thursday.Republicans are backing a plan by President Donald Trump that offers a chance for citizenship for up to 1.8 million young “Dreamer” immigrants, as well as providing $25 billion for his proposed wall with Mexico and restricting legal immigration.Democrats prefer a bipartisan plan that helps the Dreamers but doles out the wall money slowly and has far milder curbs on legal immigration.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Democrats aren’t backing any measures that have a chance of becoming law.Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says Trump is the problem. Schumer says the American people will blame him if the immigration effort fails.___10:20 a.m.President Donald Trump says Congress should be — in his words — “strongly considering a system of Merit Based Immigration” as the Senate works on an immigration plan to protect young “Dreamers.”The president says on Twitter that a merit-based system would allow the United States to “have the people ready, willing and able to help all of those companies moving into the USA!”His comment comes as a group of senators pushes a bipartisan plan that aims to offer citizenship to certain young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children — and provides billions to build a border wall with Mexico.The Trump administration has denounced the proposal, saying it will create “mass amnesty for over 10 million illegal aliens, including criminals.”___8:25 a.m.The Trump administration is denouncing a bipartisan immigration deal in the Senate, saying it will “create a mass amnesty for over 10 million illegal aliens, including criminals.”At issue is a compromise announced Wednesday by 16 senators with centrist views. It seeks to balance Democrats’ fight to offer citizenship to young “Dreamer” immigrants with President Donald Trump’s demands for billions to build a border wall with Mexico.The Department of Homeland Security sent out a statement on the measure just before 1 a.m. Thursday, saying the compromise would “be the end of immigration enforcement in America and only serve to draw millions more illegal aliens with no way to remove them.”The department says the proposal does not address the administration’s border security and immigration concerns.___12:49 a.m.A group of senators reached a bipartisan agreement aimed at balancing Democrats’ fight to offer citizenship to young “Dreamer” immigrants with President Donald Trump’s demands for billions to build his coveted border wall with Mexico.Though the compromise was announced Wednesday by 16 senators with centrist views on the issue and was winning support from many Democrats, it faced an uncertain fate. Leaders were trying to schedule votes on that plan and three other immigration proposals for Thursday, which they hoped would bring the chamber’s showdown over the hot-button issue to a close.While not specifically mentioning the bipartisan pact, Trump urged lawmakers to oppose any plan that doesn’t meet his more stringent demands, which include curbs on legal immigration and the abolition of a visa lottery.

Google Is No Longer Working on HighAltitude Drones

first_img This story originally appeared on PCMag January 12, 2017 Google has suspended research on its solar-powered drone, the company confirmed on Wednesday, less than three years after inheriting the project through its acquisition of Titan Aerospace.First reported by 9to5Google on Wednesday, the drone cancellation took place early in 2016, according to a representative from the X subsidiary of Google’s parent company, Alphabet. The representative told PCMag that X plans to refocus its efforts on development of a high-altitude balloon called Loon that can deliver internet access to remote areas, as well as the Project Wing drone delivery service.  “The team from Titan was brought into X in late 2015,” X Communications Manager Jacquelyn Miller wrote in an email to PCMag. “We ended our exploration of high altitude UAVs for internet access shortly after.”Miller explained that the decision to stop drone research was one of several reorganizations that occurred after Alphabet was established, but that X’s overall mission to expiriment with alternative ways of delivering Internet access hadn’t changed.”By comparison, at this stage the economics and technical feasibility of Project Loon present a much more promising way to connect rural and remote parts of the world,” she wrote. “Many people from the Titan team are now using their expertise as part of other high flying projects at X, including Loon and Project Wing.”The challenges of delivering Internet access via solar-powered drones have not deterred Facebook, which performed a test flight of its own Aquila drone last year. That flight ended in disaster, however, when the prototype crashed due to a structural failure.Facebook was also rumored to be interested in Titan Aerospace before Google acquired it in 2014. The company instead picked up UK-based Ascenta, which had also been working on solar-powered drones.

Yes Hackable Dolls and Insecure Fridges Really Are a Thing

first_imgNovember 15, 2018 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. The premise of Bruce Schneier’s new book, Click Here to Kill Everybody, is that “the internet is powerful, but it is not safe. As ‘smart’ devices proliferate, the risks will get worse, unless we act now.” I couldn’t agree more.If you’ve seen Maximum Overdrive, Stephen King’s 1986 horror movie in which the world’s home appliances rise up and start attacking their owners, you’ll have a good idea of the kind of climate in which the Internet of Things (IoT) hacks are often talked about. Admittedly, the hacks detailed below are much more mundane, but if IoT security issues are not dealt with soon, King’s movie may not be so absurd after all.Related: The Dangers of the Internet of ThingsThere are serious security flaws that permeate the build process for IoT devices — security cameras to pacemakers, cars, home security devices and yes, potentially even your net-enabled fridge. However, as far as how those flaws can be exploited, it’s still relatively early to say. To date, the objective of IoT hacks appear to be either experimentation or the same as with any other kind of targeted hacking — to steal or otherwise manipulate data for financial gain or malicious intent. Here are some notable examples:In 2016, the IoT-driven Mirai virus perpetrated some of the largest DDoS attacks ever seen. A DDoS attack pointed at U.S.-based DNS provider Dyn, Mirai took down large parts of the internet, including Netflix and Amazon, and in a different attack, the country of Liberia, with an army of enslaved IP cameras, printers and baby monitors.Ransomware attacks on IoT devices underscore how critical the proper IoT security can be, especially when you consider that a smart device can be used as a jumping off point to hijack an entire network (and vice versa). U.K. hospitals were hit hard by last year’s WannaCry ransomware cyberattack, which cost the U.K.’s National Health Service almost £100m (despite its paltry $300 price tag for decrypting data) and led to the cancellation of 19,000 appointments. While the U.S. pretty much avoided the scope of the attack, there were some reports of U.S. hospitals being hit, including one hospital that had its radiology equipment hacked.For a peek into how clever criminals can be, we can look to the Mandalay Bay Casino hack, in which its high-roller database was stolen via a compromised, internet-connected fish tank thermometer. And security researchers have demonstrated how everything from Wi-fi-enabled Barbie Dolls to Samsung TVs can be hacked.The biggest issue with securing the IoT is that like the internet itself, the IoT ecosystem was not built with security in mind. All layers of the stack IoT — the hardware, software, etc., are vulnerable and inherently insecure across multiple fronts, and manufacturers are not yet incentivized through regulation or public pressure to change that.Related: Malware Hits Everyone, From Small Business to Big Government. What Are You Doing About It?Plus, implementing standards and best practices across a global, multi-pronged supply chain requires governments working in unison to create and enforce global standards. The global manufacturers who produce so many of the cheap, rushed-to-market IoT goods in countries prized for their cheap labor costs and low regulatory bar are not likely to start thinking about cybersecurity any time soon. At the consumer level, many are still clueless or uninterested about the weaknesses in their connected doorbells, and at worst, indifferent.The problems are massive, but Schneier spends almost half the book on how we can fix the problem. In short, he suggests a model consisting of technology and policy — a mix of well-crafted, enforceable government regulation and industry-wide adherence to strong security standards, such as those outlined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).Schneier’s book is particularly timely in that is was published just as signs of change have begun to appear on the horizon. Six months ago, the European Union passed the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which outlines very clear requirements for the use and handling of customer data. With a recent Facebook breach that impacted 3 million users, GDPR’s effectiveness will be soon be tested.In September 2018, California Governor Jerry Brown signed SB-327, the nation’s first IoT-specific law. The bill has been praised by some as a good first step and criticized by others as being too vague. Either way, it’s paving new ground. Plus, because it applies to devices built and sold in California, it will have ripple effects that extend beyond the state.Related: 12 Simple Things You Can Do to Be More Secure OnlineWe may not have to face down our own electric shavers as they try and cut our throats, but until security is baked into the manufacturing process for connected devices, we are leaving ourselves equally vulnerable. If I haven’t quelled your desire to use smart devices, here are some ways to do so as securely as possible: When evaluating products, ask salespeople questions about their security features. If they have nothing to say, or what they tell you is not easily understood, ask yourself — do you really need that cool new smart device?If you are using apps to control your IoT devices (think smart home alarms or thermostats), consider using a VPN for your phone that includes basic web protections. There are plenty of options, both free and for a small annual fee. Stay vigilant. any network-connected device can be hijacked, and phishing is still one of the most effective ways to deliver malware. Don’t assume your IoT devices are immune from email or web-based attacks accidentally unleashed on your smart devices from your laptop or desktop. 5 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

MRI-PlaqueView’s 3-D visualization of carotid plaque morphology and composition.July 13, 2012 — GE Healthcare and VPDiagnostics Inc. jointly announced today their co-marketing agreement for the VPDiagnostics’ MRI-PlaqueView software for carotid artery atherosclerosis analysis. The MRI-PlaqueView software is compatible with carotid magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data acquired from GE 3.0T MRI systems (HDxt and Discovery MR750). The collaboration will aim to develop optimized carotid imaging protocols and future co-developments on new techniques.Carotid atherosclerosis may be responsible for as much as one-third of all strokes. To better gauge risk of stroke from carotid atherosclerosis, clinicians are beginning to look beyond traditional risk factors such as carotid artery narrowing (stenosis) to identify high-risk features of the atherosclerotic plaque itself. The GE 3.0T MRI systems and dedicated carotid coil enables high-resolution multi-contrast imaging of carotid lumens, vessel walls and atherosclerotic plaques, while the MRI PlaqueView software from VPDiagnostics provides analysis of these images to delineate various plaque components such as vessel wall, calcified and soft plaques, and help provide a better assessment of the plaque characteristics.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com  News | July 13, 2012 GE, VPDiagnostics Collaborate on MRI of Carotid Artery Atherosclerosis Imaging, Plaque Analysis New collaboration aims to improve research and clinical development in vulnerable plaque assessment Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more Feature | Contrast Media | July 18, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How To Manage Risk in the MR Suite Macrocyclic contrast agents have the best safety profile of all the magnetic resonance (MR) contrast media that are n read more News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more center_img News | Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) | July 16, 2019 AAPM 2019 Features More Than 40 Presentations on ViewRay’s MRIdian MRI-guided Radiotherapy ViewRay Inc. announced that the company’s MRIdian System is the focus of more than 40 abstracts selected by the… read more Two brain metastases from primary lung cancer are contrast enhanced in the brain of a 61-year-old male.

Qantas jet diverted to Fiji

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: D.M A US-bound Qantas flight from Sydney has been diverted to Fiji overnight following a fuel valve fault to its Boeing 747-400 aircraft, adding another incident to its recent spate of safety scares for the airline. Flight QF 107 to New York with almost 400 passengers was forced to land at Nadi airport at 6:20 ADST, with twenty passengers transferred shortly after onto an Air Pacific flight to Los Angeles. The remaining travellers and crew were given accommodation in Fiji overnight, and has since departed to LA this morning after engineers were able to fix the fault, according to a report in SMH today. Recent Qantas safety incidents include Saturday’s delay of QF11 from Sydney to Los Angeles due to engine problems before takeoff, and QF430 from Melbourne to Sydney which was turned back after a possible problem with the Boeing 767’s wingflaps.The airline resumed A380 flights to LA in January, lifting its grounding of the jets following a mid-air explosion in November.last_img read more

Sikkim aims to attract 12 lakh tourists by 2025

first_imgThe Sikkim government has set a target of attracting 12 lakh tourists to the state by 2025.“Sikkim with highest forest cover of 47% in the country is most favourite tourist destination in entire north eastern region and its tourist arrival has doubled in last ten years,” said, Pawan Kumar Chamling, Chief Minister, Sikkim.Sikkim registered  3,47,650 domestic tourist arrival in the year 2005 which increased to 7,05,023 in the year 2015 while 16,518 foreign tourist arrivals were registered in the year 2005 which increased to 38,479 in the year 2015.Moreover, Sikkim’s Kanchenjunga National Park (KNP) has now been inscribed as India’s first ‘Mixed World Heritage Site’ by UNESCO. KNP located in eastern Himalayan region was set up in 850 sq km area in August, 1977, and was subsequently extended to 1784 sq km in May, 1997, by including surrounding areas for the purpose of protecting and developing wildlife. It had been on the tentative list of World Heritage Sites since 2006.KNP has the widest altitudinal range of all the protected areas of the world. This park has an enviable altitudinal variation varying from 1220 m to 8586 m within an aerial distance of just 42 kilometres with permanently snowcapped mountains, glaciers, high altitude lakes, grasslands, cold deserts and varied forest types and consequent floral and faunal diversity to delight the visitors. With an altitudinal range of 7,366 metres within an area of only 1784 sq km, KNP is endowed with one of the highest ecosystems in the world.last_img read more
