BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. But the pain did not last long.“10 minutes,” Lazo said, drawing laughter from the group. Fuentes did a mock-reenactment of the scene: “I was like huhuhu (crying).” And then the awarding ceremonies came and everyone “was happy,” recounted the bubbly midfielder.“After a while, when we were able to recover from that final whistle and then you see the girls crying and broken, we told them there’s nothing to be ashamed of with your performance,” said Benitez. “You can walk into the pitch with your held head high.”The sadness they felt when they had to go their separate ways, however, would last a little bit longer.“We were together for five weeks or more,” said Zalamea. “So it wasn’t easy to say goodbye. Especially since some of the girls were from the province and some were from America.” ADVERTISEMENT “They’re like family na and I wanted to stick with them forever,” said Lazo. “In the last day we were crying. It was so sad.”“It’s hard to say good bye to people who are the first ones you see when you wake up and the last faces you see before you go to sleep,” said Fuentes.The girls had built camaraderie the same way really special teams do: Stay together in success and failure. Bond through activities that help fight off the ennui that sometimes settles on “away” teams between games and practices. Building memories together.And there were lots of memories. Fuentes recalled “doing homework” and “applying face masks and cucumber patches during 10-hour layovers.” There were several activities: Team-building, singing on bus rides, queuing at buffet tables. And of course, the memories on the pitch were aplenty.“I’ll always remember that Myanmar game, when Mirya scored the goal and we were finally in the final,” said Torres. “That felt good.”Even the coaches carry moments they will always miss.“The routine,” said Dillera. “Waking them up early in the morning and making sure they’re tucked in bed before 9 p.m.”After all, for the coaches, it was suddenly like having children of their own—teenagers at that—to take care of.“I think we skipped the whole cute part,” laughed Benitez. “It was a lot of fun being with them. There were days when they were extra makulit and the coaches had to put their foot down. But with this batch of coaches, we could be as playful as the kids and we could be serious.”And the kids loved their coaches. Pagasa: Storm intensifies as it nears PAR LATEST STORIES “They tag along sometimes and sumasama sa kalokohan,” said Zalamea. “They take care of us really well.”“They guide us. They are our inspiration,” added Torres. And they’re ready to jump on any chance to get together as a team again. After all, the team has a goal. If they stay together long enough and train together hard enough, they just might be able to plant a foot in the U17 women’s World Cup.And that may not be such a far-fetched dream.“You know you did something good, something right, when the goodbyes are longer than the training sessions,” said Benitez.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Oakley holds charity game for young golfers Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast View comments Every 18 seconds someone is diagnosed with HIV MOST READ Palace: Duterte to hear out security execs on alleged China control of NGCP BSP survey: PH banks see bright horizon amid dark global recession clouds “The last day,” said midfielder Martina Torres.Torres and her teammates—midfielders KC Zalamea and Any Fuentes and striker Maria Lazo—along head coach Marielle Benitez and assistant coach Elyo Dillera were recent guests of Sports IQ, the Inquirer’s omni-platform live sports talk show, where they talked about their journey to the finale of the U15 tournament.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAfter coming back dramatically to beat Myanmar in the semifinals, leaning on a goal by Mirya Garcia with four minutes left in the match, the young Malditas ran into a Thailand squad that flaunted superior quality and a marked improvement from the squad the Philippines nearly upset in last year’s U14 finale.The pain of a 6-2 defeat in the finale was real.

Mumbai, Jul 23 (PTI) The Bombay High Court has ordered the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) to furnish a bank guarantee of Rs 150 crore, pending arbitration proceedings in the cricket bodys dispute with a private company over Rs 172.32 crore dues for a stadium built by it in Pune.The company, Shapoorji Pallonji & Co Ltd (SPCL), built the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium (now called Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium) at Gahunje on Punes outskirts.A single bench of Justice Amjad Sayed last week directed the MCA to furnish the bank guarantee for an amount of Rs 150 crore in favour of the high court registrar.The court also referred the matter to the arbitral tribunal, to be heard and decided through arbitration.Justice Sayed was hearing an application filed by MCA challenging an order passed by a Pune court on January 20 this year, directing the cricket body to deposit Rs 172.32 crore in any nationalised bank, in an account of joint names of MCA and SPCL, pending hearing of the case.The Pune court had allowed an application filed by SPCL under the Arbitration Act seeking payment of the outstanding dues.In February 2010, the MCA had issued a work tender to SPCL and a contract agreement was drawn upon.In October 2012, a project manager of MCA issued a virtual completion certificate to the stadium following which in March 2013 the SPCL issued a final bill of Rs 234.10 crore.The project manager, however, certified and approved the final bill for an amount of Rs 225 crore and also recommended that Rs 3.31 crore be witheld from the final bill on account of certain works in the stadium which have not allegedly been executed by SPCL.advertisementIn January 2015, the MCA informed the SPCL that it was unable to make payment as the same is subject to funding from the BCCI, which had not been able to release funds since it could not hold its annual general meeting as it had been stopped by the Supreme Court.According to SPCL, the MCA paid Rs 150.43 crore towards the final bill, but had later unlawfully witheld payment of the remaining amount and failed to clear it following which the company approached the Pune court.The SPCL, in its application before the Pune court, claimed an amount of Rs 172.32 crore, which includes the pending dues and an interest at 18 per cent per annum.MCAs counsel Vineet Naik argued that the work of the stadium was to be completed by April 2011. However, the SPCL could not complete it on time.”The completion of the project in the stipulated time period was the essence of the contract. Upon completion of the project and work of the stadium, the MCA was to get an amount of Rs 207.95 crore towards naming rights from Sahara Adventure Sports Limited,” Naik said.He said by the time the project was completed, the Sahara Group was in trouble as financial restrains were put by the Supreme Court and Sahara chief Subrata Roy was arrested.”The MCA could not get the amount from Sahara and arbitration proceedings for the same are on,” Naik said.After hearing the arguments, the high court noted that the MCA had recently availed a loan of Rs 107.96 crore from a consortium of banks. The MCA has also sought fresh funding to which the banks have agreed.”Considering the facts of the case and looking at the conduct of MCA in having agreed to clear the dues of SPCL and thereafter raising belated claim for damages only reflects the intention of MCA to delay and obstruct the payment of dues to SPCL,” Justice Sayed said in a 30-page judgement last week.”In these circumstances, the apprehension averred by SPCL that there is a strong possibility of the assets and funds being dissipated or being transferred or diverted by MCA before an award (order) is passed in the proposed arbitration proceedings cannot be said to be unfounded,” the judge said.The high court also that the SPCLs interest is required to be protected till the dispute is adjudicated in arbitration.

England coach Trevor Bayliss has warned his team of the threat Virat Kohli poses despite not being 100 percent fit.Kohli is currently recovering from a back injury, which troubled him during the Lord’s Test. But Bayliss feels the India captain could prove to be more dangerous as a player in the third Test at Trent Bridge.Bayliss said he expects Kohli to play the third Test as India are 0-2 down in the five-match series.”It could mean he’s more of a dangerous player. Through history there are a lot of players who have played with an injury and scored runs and taken wickets,” Bayliss said.”I don’t know if that focuses the mind more but I have just seen him take some slip catches without any problems, so I’m sure he’ll be playing. That won’t change our approach to the way we play him.”Bayliss hoped the conditions at Trent Bridge would be similar to Lord’s.”I haven’t been out there but normally there is a bit of swing around. We’re looking forward to it being the same as Lord’s. That would be nice,” he added.Meanwhile, Bayliss welcomed Ben Stokes back into the side but said in no uncertain terms that the controversial all-rounder was not assured of a place in the final XI.Stokes missed the second Test due to a court hearing as he face affray charges. His replacement in the second Test, Chris Woakes scored his maiden hundred as England defeated India by an innings and 159 runs at Lord’s to take a 2-0 lead. He was named man-of-the-match.advertisementStokes has now been cleared of all charges and has been included back in England squad.”It’s good to have him back around the squad. I’m happy for Ben that’s all over. It was a collective decision (to bring him back into the side so quickly). It was basically thought that for his own wellbeing, it was good to get him back around cricket,” Bayliss said.”There’s nothing automatic about selections and we’ll see how he is mentally as well as physically. He hasn’t played for a couple of weeks. He’s been a guy that in the past who has been able to come in and perform without having played a lot of cricket. We’ll take that into consideration.”But also, sometimes it’s a little bit like when someone gets injured, someone else comes into the team and does well, it’s a bit difficult for that injured played to come back in. This is a similar situation. It’s a difficult decision to make,” he added.(With PTI inputs)
SANTA CLARA, CA – JANUARY 07: Josh Jacobs #8 of the Alabama Crimson Tide is wrapped up by Tre Lamar #57 of the Clemson Tigers Tidein the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Levi’s Stadium on January 7, 2019 in Santa Clara, California. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)With college football almost back, ESPN released a new set of power rankings. Instead of looking ahead to this fall, it viewed the history of some of the best programs in the country.ESPN released its rankings based on which programs produce the best talent at each position. The positions that were taken into account were quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, offensive line, defensive line, linebacker and defensive back.Not only does these power rankings show which schools are trending upward, but it also shows which have sustained success.It’s fair to say that more than a couple of these rankings will spark a debate. Let’s see which teams they have ranked as the top three schools for each position (In order from first to third).Quarterback: USC, Oklahoma, OregonRunning Back: Alabama, Wisconsin, LSUWide Receiver: USC, Ohio State, Florida StateTight End: Miami, Iowa, StanfordOffensive Line: Alabama, Wisconsin, OklahomaDefensive Line: Alabama, Clemson, Penn StateLinebacker: Georgia, Alabama, Ohio StateDefensive Back: Ohio State, LSU, AlabamaA few of these rankings are controversial, but the two most noticeable ones are Georgia as ‘Linebacker U’ and Ohio State as ‘DBU.’ For years, Penn State held the title of the top program for linebackers, whereas LSU is often considered a football factory for defensive backs.Despite the recent fall in production at USC, it’s clear that ESPN won’t let that affect its view of the program. ESPN could have gone with Oklahoma for ‘Quarterback U,’ due to its recent success of producing Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. However, it opted for USC’s trio of Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart and Sam Darnold.While ESPN gives Miami the honor of being ‘Tight End U,’ Iowa is climbing up the rankings in large part because of George Kittle, Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson.Do you agree with these rankings?[ESPN]
Indo-Asian News Service WellingtonMarch 12, 2019UPDATED: March 12, 2019 11:50 IST Kane Williamson injured his shoulder during the recently-concluded Test match between New Zealand and Bangladesh in Wellington (BCCI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSKane Williamson suffered an injury to his shoulder during the recently-concluded 2nd Test vs BangladeshWilliamson has suffered a grade one tear to his left pectoral minor muscle, local media has saidKane Williamson had led Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2018 in the absence of David WarnerWith around two months left for the 2019 World Cup, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has injured his left shoulder while fielding in the second Test against Bangladesh however, coach Gary Stead feels the injury is rare.After hurting his shoulder while diving in the field in the first innings in the just-concluded Test the hosts won by an innings and 12 runs, Williamson did not field in the second innings besides experiencing pain while batting and scans revealed that he suffered a grade one tear to his left pectoral minor muscle, The New Zealand Herald reported.Hopeful of quick recovery: SteadHowever, Stead said the injury was rare and Williamson will recover shortly.”It’s a pretty rare injury, they’ve only seen I think five in the world before. I know that the physio staff were saying ‘We’ll make this a case study’ because it is so rare,” the coach said.”It’s very minor but we’re hopeful he will recover quickly.”Stead also expressed that the skipper has undergone some injuries in the past and has fought well to attain full fitness.”Kane’s managed his way through injuries before, he’s had niggles all the time, and he seems to find a way through. The extent of this and the unknown of this were the things we were unsure about, but hopefully, he’ll get through that fine.”It’s like any muscle, there’s obviously irritation and a wee bit of bleeding, it’s not a major injury, so we’re hopeful in a short period of time, he will be back to full noise,” he added.advertisement100 percent recovery priority before IPL departureStead however, said that Williamson will feature in the third and final Test against the visitors only if he fully recovers.”If he’s fit, no player wants to give up their spot in the test team. But I think it’s safe to say that we will probably err on the conservative side, and if there’s any chance of risk then we’re likely to pull him from that game.”Keeping in mind the World Cup slated to start from May 30, Stead also hinted that if Williamson doesn’t get complete fitness, the New Zealand management would opt to pull him back from the Indian Premier League (IPL), starting March 23.”From what I’ve been speaking with the physio and Kane about, if things progress as we hope, then going to the IPL shouldn’t be a problem for him. But he’s also aware that if he’s not quite 100 percent, then we will potentially hold him back as well and make sure he is right before he goes on that plane,” he added.Also Read | Dhoni half a captain of Indian team, Kohli visibly rough without him: Bishan BediAlso Read | Support pours in for Rishabh Pant after Mohali taunt over missed stumpingsAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

HALIFAX – Eleven fresh instances of “unusual activity” on Nova Scotia’s freedom-of-information website were detected after a young man allegedly breached the site in early March, the province confirmed Monday.But the teenager’s lawyer and the province’s opposition parties say the revelation in a government news release is hardly surprising given gaping gaps in security.Earlier this month a 19-year-old was arrested on police claims he’d violated a rarely used portion of the Criminal Code that prohibits people from “fraudulently” making “unauthorized use of a computer.”Lawyer David Fraser, said his client used simple programming to collect public material — and if he retrieved private material, it was an unintended consequence of the lack of proper security features.Fraser has repeatedly said there was no malevolent intent, that the teenager and his family suffered unnecessary stress from a police raid involving 15 officers, and he’s optimistic charges won’t proceed.The province’s latest revelations of activity on the site says they came from different, local internet protocol addresses than the 19-year-old’s original address.The Department of Internal Services has once again handed over information to the Halifax police, who have confirmed they received it on April 21 and will investigate.Jeff Conrad, the deputy minister of Internal Services, said in an interview that the 900 documents downloaded in the latest cases were among the previous 7,000 documents accessed in the alleged March 3 and 4 breaches.Conrad said that 53 people once again had “sensitive personal information” accessed, including information from applications for personal information citizens made via the government system. Citizens can use the portal to apply for personal files that government agencies are holding.“We’ve notified 53 people their material may have been seen by more than one person and we’ve notified them to take advantage of credit monitoring as a result of that possibility,” he said.However, Fraser — a privacy lawyer who has took on the young man’s case due to his concerns about the potential prosecution — said he’s not in the least taken aback by the latest news.“It cannot be surprising that when you put documents up in public, on a public website without any security or authentication, they will be read or downloaded. That’s how the internet works,” he wrote.Meanwhile, the opposition Tories said the latest news release is a reminder of the Liberal government’s poor performance in protecting personal information.Interim leader Karla MacFarlane said the double breach of the same information proves, “the Liberals left the portal wide open. They used full force to arrest a 19-year-old kid but now they must be left scratching their heads.”“How can he reasonably expect Nova Scotians to trust him when information like their birthdates, social insurance numbers and home addresses have been so carelessly protected.”When asked whether the website lacked basic security or password features, Conrad said he can’t comment because multiple investigations are underway.“At this point we’re focused on providing information to those most affected. … We haven’t got to the stage of delving deeply into what happened. That will be a future step in our process.”Both the province’s privacy commissioner and the auditor general are considering whether the province upheld its own privacy procedures in the way the website was designed.The freedom-of-information website is hosted by the information technology company Unisys, and it provides security measures as part of its hosting contract with the province.Conrad said after the investigations are completed there will be assessments of contracts with service providers like Unisys.“We’ll determine what we need to do in terms of next contract, and what language we need to put in them.”The site is being tested to ensure that remedies are in place to prevent further breaches, said the deputy minister.He said he couldn’t provide a date on when the fixes would be in place and the website would resume normal operations.Followt (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.
OTTAWA — The Liberal government has confirmed that Alberta may qualify for a financial boost under a little-known federal program to help ease the province’s economic pain from falling commodity prices.As The Canadian Press reported Thursday, the province could be eligible for payments under the fiscal stabilization program, Finance Minister Bill Morneau acknowledged during question period.Provinces can make claims under the program when their revenues tumble by more than five per cent from one year to the next.Oilsands dodge bullet in new royalty regime based on revenues, not oil pricesThe Alberta government has projected a double-digit decline in revenues in 2015-16 due to the steep slide in resource prices.“I spoke yesterday with the Alberta minister of finance to see how we could work together and I’m pleased to say that he understands that there’s a stabilization fund that Alberta can apply for,” Morneau said Friday.“The potential is up to $250 million. Should they apply, we would work expeditiously to move forward on that request.”Payments from the program were capped in the late 1980s at $60 per provincial resident. Alberta’s population is about 4.1 million.Alberta Finance Minister Joe Ceci told CP earlier this week that he was looking forward to a discussion with Morneau about possible federal help for the province’s finances.He didn’t get into the details, but when asked whether he might ask the federal government for a loan, he replied: “Yeah, potentially.”Ceci said he would also like to see Ottawa speed up promised infrastructure investments and provide more support for getting pipeline access to tidewater.Last fall, the Alberta government projected its revenues would sink 11.5 per cent from 2014-15 to 2015-16. Experts say it could end up worse than that because oil prices have continued to drop.“Albertans are hurting,” Ceci said.A senior federal government source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a fiscal-stabilization payment was just one of several possibilities Ottawa is exploring as it scrambles to find ways to help the hard-hit province.In preparation for the spring budget, the federal government has also instructed bureaucrats across many departments to generate “innovative ideas” that could help provide specific relief for the Alberta economy, said the source, who wasn’t authorized to disclose details publicly.Alberta’s woes are “dragging down the entire Canadian economy,” the source warned.Potential solutions being bounced around include fast-tracking infrastructure spending and tweaking the usual, per-capita infrastructure funding disbursement formula to reflect economic need, the source noted. Another idea being examined is a boost to direct transfers to individuals, perhaps through modifications to the employment insurance program.The Liberal government pledged to enhance EI during last fall’s election campaign and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has vowed to inject an additional $60 billion over 10 years into infrastructure projects. Only $17.4 billion of it, however, was earmarked to flow during the Liberals’ first mandate.Trudeau is scheduled to visit Alberta next week. The Liberals made an electoral breakthrough in October by capturing four ridings in the province. Before that, the party had been shut out there since 2004.The federal budget is expected to be released in March.
Gabby Horner-Shepherd was searching for a prom date and in the end found two.Zack Bowman, a goalie in the Ontario Hockey League, and Constable Jeremy Renton, an officer with the OPP, escorted Gabby to the prom at Waterford District High School on Saturday night.Gabby, who has special needs due to a genetic disorder, is in her final year of high school.Shannon Horner-Shepherd, Gabby’s mom, created a website and video prior to the prom searching for a special someone to take Gabby to the dance. She said that they had around 25 applications to be Gabby’s date.Renton knew Gabby previously through his involvement in coaching her sledge hockey team. He was one of the first people to reach out after the website was made.“I think everyone deserves to go to their prom. It would break my heart if she didn’t have a date and she didn’t get to experience that type of event,” said Renton.He found out about the hunt through the video that Shannon had posted.“I knew right away he was very genuine in his offer, and that’s what I wanted was someone who was very genuine and could see Gabby for who she is,” Shannon said about Renton.Renton said that dancing the night away with Gabby was his favourite part of being her prom date.“It was the most amazing night of my life. We closed the place down, we literally danced the whole time we were there,” said Renton.Bowman did not have a previous connection with Gabby, and reached out to Shannon after seeing the video.One of his friends had shared the video of Gabby and Shannon and he saw it on his phone after getting off of the ice following a hockey practice.“I couldn’t say no. I couldn’t let her not have the time of her life that night,” said Bowman. “I was fortunate enough that Shannon congratulated me and said that Gabby was going to have two dates.”The night was emotional for everyone involved.“I was so happy to see Gabby smiling, she just looked incredibly beautiful,” said Bowman. “At the end I had to fight back the tears when I saw Gabby and Shannon dancing together.”Bowman said that he was standing beside Renton watching the pair dance and Renton said, “This is what it’s all about.”“That was the worst thing he could have said, I got so emotional. Someone cut the onions in that room, that’s for sure,” Bowman joked.“Zack quite honestly melted my heart,” said Shannon. “His reasoning for wanting to do it was heartwarming. He never had a chance to go to his own senior prom, because of his own involvement in hockey, and that was one of his reasons.”Gabby’s support staff Jonnelle Legault and April Guthrie got dressed up with Gabby to be there with her on her special night. Also joining the group was Shannon.Alex Paige, a Dover resident, offered to take the photos before they headed off to prom.Shannon said that Gabby’s favourite part of the night was her dates.“Well, because she’s a 21-year-old girl, she was just in awe of those two. She loved the dancing, she loves being around people,” said Shannon. “There was unconditional love for her just pouring out of them.”“They both were just phenomenal.”email@example.com
With over 760 exhibitors from 25 countries, Russia’s leading mining equipment show, Ugol Rossii & Mining, was recently held for the 20th time . Some 25,000 visitors gathered information on the latest technologies at the Kuzbasskaya Yarmarka Exhibition Centre in Novokuznetsk from 4 to 7 June. The organisers Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and Kuzbass Fair stated that this year’s event represented the largest and most international trade fair ever held in Novokuznetsk.In a total exhibition area of 41,500 m2 in addition to companies from the Russian Federation there were also 192 international exhibitors from Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Kazakhstan, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, USA, Uzbekistan, and the UK exhibiting their products. In addition to this, there were joint stands from the United Kingdom (ABMEC), Poland and the Czech Republic. Forming part of a strong German presence a dozen exhibitors from North Rhine-Westphalia also attended as part of a small, subsidised unified group.The organisers went on to quote some testimonials from exhibitors: “The Russian market is an important market for us. One of three markets. Ugol Rossii & Mining is the industry meeting point for us and therefore a key fixture in our agenda. For our industry this is the most important place. Therefore we met the three most important customers on the first day of the trade fair already,” says Frank Kriechel, Head of the Product/Market Segment Mining Europe at ContiTech Transportbandsysteme. “For the mining industry Ugol Rossii & Mining is the most important event of the year. Here in the Kuzbass basin you meet all key accounts in one place,” says Richard Kandzia, Proxy & Sales Manager Materials Handling at Thiele in Iserlohn. Finally, commenting on the trade fair, Thomas Blak, Sales Engineer at Eickhoff Bergbautechnik in Bochum, said: “As coal mining in Germany is dwindling the Russian mining industry with giant potential is getting more and more important and this is why we are represented at Ugol Rossii & Mining every year.”A focal theme f0r 2013 was safety and health at the workplace, as the Russian state is asking for more safety precautions and nearly all companies are investing in the expansion of their capacities to meet this demand. Approximately 40 companies presented technologies for the early detection of, and protection against explosive gases as well as personal protective equipment as part of a Special Show entitled “Safety and Health at Work“, within the wider event.
Senior cyber policy expert and industry leader Peter Coroneos has been appointed by the Paris-based international NGO, Cybersecurity and cybercrime Advisors Network (CyAN), to lead its efforts in the Asia Pacific region.Founded in Paris, France, in 2015, CyAN is an international not-for-profit think tank, bringing together experts from a range of disciplines: cyber policy, cyber law and technology, including expertise in cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and malware mitigation, working together to assist private and public organisations and governments to build a more secure online world.After his long tenure at the helm of the Australian Internet Industry Association, Coroneos is now an internationally recognised authority on cyber policy and cyber security speaker, offering consulting services on cybersecurity policy and best practice through his personal venture Coroneos Cyber Intelligence. Coroneos led the Australian Industry Association from 1997 to 2001 and has also represented the industry to Senate, Joint and House committees. His appointment as Regional Head, Asia Pacific was announced by CyAN president Jean-Christophe le Toquin, who called it a significant step for the organisation and reflects CyAN’s mission to bring timely and effective cybersecurity advice to both government and business.“I have personally known Peter for nearly 20 years. I met him when he was leading the Australian Internet Industry Association and I was running EuroISPA, the pan-European association of European Internet Services Providers Associations. “I have always been inspired by his passion for internet issues, his commitment to building a trusted environment for internet users, and his obvious subject-matter expertise across a wide range of areas and issues.” The CyAN board, which unanimously approved this appointment, was impressed by Peter’s leadership role, including the development of the ‘icode’; a malware detection and mitigation initiative which saw him invited twice to the White House to advise the Obama Administration. The US subsequently introduced a similar scheme which today protects tens of millions of users, with the icode covering most users in Australia. Mr Le Toquin added “The list of Peter’s achievements is long and we are delighted to have him join our leadership team to help spread best cyber practice and capacity throughout the Asia Pacific region”. In accepting his appointment, Coroneos thanked CyAN saying: “The times we live in call for international cooperation and information sharing and CyAN is a perfect vehicle for that. “As we saw with WannaCry and NotPetya, the threats are global and spread almost instantaneously with no regard for borders. “So, we cannot move too quickly to empower vulnerable businesses and users to become more prepared with what are likely to be escalated attacks in 2018. “I will do my best to engage the strong cyber talent that exists locally, so we can target our regional efforts more effectively.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) — It was time for panic for shoppers at Dadeland Mall, Sunday evening, but not a single shot was fired. Instead, what got patrons agitated started with a crafty crook, a pricey watch and some noisy firecrackers.According to Miami-Dade Police, a thief set off firecrackers at a jewelry store inside the shopping center, located at 7535 N Kendall Drive in Southwest Miami-Dade, in order to create a diversion so he could steal the high-priced timepiece.Investigators said the subject went inside Mayors Jewelers and asked to look at an expensive watch. Just after 6:30 p.m., police said, the thief threw firecrackers as a distraction and ran out with the merchandise.The incident triggered panic among shoppers, resulting in a social media flurry of tweets, photos and videos. Some tweets refer to fireworks being set off inside the mall.An Instagram user posted a video showing a few dozen shoppers standing outside the shopping center with the caption, “So i was at Dadeland Mall waiting for john and the (sic) heard a POP and everyone starts running and I ran 2…no idea.”If the incident sounds familiar, that’s because a similar distraction theft took place at the Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise, Dec. 31.Surveillance cameras captured the subject asking an employee at the Zales store to look at a Rolex watch. The mall closed at 7 p.m. as scheduled.If you have any information on this theft, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Police officers from several agencies responded to the scene as if they would to an active shooter situation.But investigators said not a single shot went off, and there were no reports of any guns.“It was like a sight out of a movie, basically,” said Dolphin Mall shopper Carlos Garcia. “It was unbelievable.”Police took a man into custody in connection to the fight.Regarding Sunday’s theft, Dadeland Mall officials issued a statement that reads in part, “A firework was set off in the mall. The area is secure and we will open for business as usual Monday.”

One of the benefits of playing your games on a console rather than a PC is the number of retailers willing to let you trade in games. Gamers and the big game stores love it, publishers and developers see it as cutting into game sales and generating revenue they never see when a game is re-sold.It’s got to the point now where publishers such as EA are introducing additional costs for gamers who by used games and want to access online content and features. This method of extracting more money is known as Project Ten Dollar.Sony has gone one step further with the console versions of MMO DC Universe Online. The game requires an online connection to play, and Sony therefore activates each game when you purchase it. The activation links the game disc and PSN key to your PSN account forever. That means you can never trade your game because it will only work with your PSN login.Lazygamer checked this with Sony to make sure the game is a one sale, no trade deal. Sony confirmed it was by saying:Once the PSN key has been consumed with a disk it cannot be resold/replayed with the second user adding a sub – only the original consumer can use that acct. So anyone choosing to buy a console version of DC Universe Online should ensure they really like the game before spending the cash as it’s yours forever. This also potentially means you can’t take it back for a refund once activated, but you can check this at point of purchase with the retailer.Read more at LazygamerMatthew’s OpinionFor PC gamers used to buying MMOs this won’t come as a surprise. The game is linked to you through the account you create and the code used. The system then makes that code dead so it won’t work again.For some console gamers this will come as a shock, probably when they approach the counter at their favorite trade-in retailer and get told the game can’t be traded. That’s going to be an especially bitter pill to swallow if you paid full price for the game with no way to get any of the money back on a trade.It could become the norm for PS3 owners if Sony decide to introduce serial keys on new games. That would kill the used game market for Sony’s console at least, but the big publishers would probably insist Microsoft did the same on Xbox 360.
While the PS4 managed to shift a million units in one day at launch, Nintendo would be happy to sell that in a month right now. The Wii U continues to struggle despite the release of some big name games in recent months, including the HD reboot of The Wind Waker. Now the analysts are taking an educated guess at how badly the Wii U is going to fair during this generation of hardware.The Xbox 360 and PS3 have both sold around 80 million units during their 7 year reigns as current-gen consoles. The Wii on the other hand managed over 100 million. Analyst DFC Intelligence is predicting that Nintendo will only manage a quarter of that with the Wii U, just beating GameCube lifetime sales by selling 25 million units.The GameCube managed 22 million sales and is currently Nintendo’s worst performing console ever launched. And although the Wii U is predicted to beat that total, there’s no guarantee it will, especially with such strong competition entering the market over the past couple of weeks.At the end of September the Wii U has shipped 3.91 million units having had around a year head start on the Xbox One and PS4. The 25 million lifetime sales estimate has been made based on the presumption the Wii U will remain a console focused on Nintendo’s own games, with little in terms of big hits coming from third-party developers and publishers.DFC analyst David Cole believes Nintendo has decided to target a very different audience than those attracted to the Xbox One and PS4. He also suggests selling as many units as the GameCube may actually be the target for Nintendo now.What this suggests to me is that Nintendo will push as hard as it can to keep selling the Wii U, but must already be thinking about the console’s successor. I also suspect it won’t be that long before we see another Wii U price cut. That combined with some more compelling first-party game releases from Nintendo should push sales at least into the double-digit millions.
