Man filmed committing hateful act against mother identified by Montreal police

first_imgMontreal police say they have identified a man seen in a widely shared video verbally harassing a woman and a crying child.The woman in the video has told media outlets she believes the incident was racially motivated, starting after the man heard her speaking Arabic on the street.Police said today they identified the man in the video after receiving a tip from the public. A police spokesman says investigators met him within the past 24 hours.Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante had appealed to the public to help identify the man in the video, describing his actions in a tweet this week as a hateful act against a mother and her daughter.In the video, first posted online on July 23, the man approaches a woman who is not seen on camera and uses a vulgar term to insult her. He then bends down to a crying child, who is also not seen on video, and asks if he can have sex with the child’s mother.Police say the investigation is ongoing and did not release any other information.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Companies on high alert as Sony hacking puts focus on corporate cybersecurity

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Mae Anderson, The Associated Press Posted Dec 18, 2014 4:03 pm MDT FILE – In this Dec. 2, 2014 file photo, cars enter Sony Pictures Entertainment headquarters in Culver City, Calif. Companies across the globe are on high alert to tighten up network security to avoid being the next company brought to its knees by hackers like those that executed the dramatic cyberattack against Sony Pictures Entertainment. The hack, which a U.S. official has said investigators believe is linked to North Korea, culminated in the cancellation of a Sony film, “The Interview,” and ultimately could cost the movie studio hundreds of millions of dollars. (AP Photo/Nick Ut, File) Companies on high alert as Sony hacking puts focus on corporate cybersecurity flaws ATLANTA – Companies across the globe are on high alert to tighten up network security to avoid being the next company brought to its knees by hackers like those that executed the dramatic cyberattack against Sony Pictures Entertainment.The hack, which a U.S. official has said investigators believe is linked to North Korea, culminated in the cancellation of a Sony film and ultimately could cost the movie studio hundreds of millions of dollars. That the hack included terrorist threats and was focused on causing major corporate damage, rather than on stealing customer information for fraud like in the breaches at Home Depot and Target, indicates a whole new frontier has emerged in cybersecurity. Suddenly every major company could be the target of cyberextortion.“The Sony breach is a real wake-up call even after the year of mega-breaches we’ve seen,” says Lee Weiner, Boston security firm Rapid7’s senior vice-president of products and engineering. “This is a completely different type of data stolen with the aim to harm the company.”This should signal to all U.S. businesses that they need to “take cybersecurity as serious as physical security of their employees or security of their physical facilities,” says Cynthia Larose, chair of the privacy and security practice at the law firm Mintz Levin in Boston.The breach is particularly troubling in Hollywood, where secrecy is supposed to be paramount to insure that movie secrets worth millions don’t get leaked.“Movie studios have, by and large, behaved as high-security intellectual property purveyors; prints have been tightly controlled, screeners are watermarked, and bootleggers are prosecuted wherever possible,” says Seth Shapiro, a professor at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. He said that’s what makes it so surprising that email leaks showed that Sony executives apparently gave out passwords in unencrypted emails and made other security blunders.“The apparently laxity of Sony IT security — given the history of prior hacks — is unprecedented in the history of media technology,” he says. Sony Corp.’s PlayStation network was hacked in 2011.Studios are trying to tighten up procedures in the wake of the Sony attack. Warner Bros. executives earlier this week ordered a company-wide password reset and sent a five-point security checklist to employees advising them to purge their computers of any unnecessary data, in an email seen by The Associated Press. “Keep only what you need for business purposes,” the message said.Even so, some say there is little that corporations can do to prevent such a sophisticated cyberattack. The key may lie more in detection and limiting damage.“There are very few companies that can withstand that kind of large assault,” says Rich Mogull, an analyst with security firm Securosis in Phoenix. “But a lot of companies do need to improve what they’re doing on security, I see it every day with companies I work with.”Companies also need to invest in identifying vulnerabilities on their networks and work quickly to address them. Jonathan Sander, strategy and research officer at data security firm Stealthbits in Hawthorne, N.J., recommends undertaking a comprehensive review to ensure outdated files, such as digital copies of old contracts and electronic conversations that occurred years ago, are no longer being stored on the corporate networks.“There is a lot of stuff just sitting there waiting to be taken and used for the kind of thing that has happened at Sony right now,” Sander says.He says the Sony breach has been coming up in every customer meeting that Stealthbits Technologies had held since the stolen information began leaking out and making international headlines earlier this month.“We used to have to lead people to the idea that you need to protect this kind of data,” he said. “Now we walk in and they’re asking, ‘How can I keep my data from ending up on the Internet like Sony’s did?”Some customers have been wondering if they should reduce their reliance on email and switch over to other digital forms of communication, such as messaging systems that don’t store the data. Sander doesn’t believe that provides as much protection as making a telephone call to share passwords and other sensitive information.Most importantly, companies need to focus on the ability to detect hacks quickly and limit them as fast as possible. Currently, the average amount of time it takes a company to detect a breach is 200 to 230 days, Rapid7’s Weiner said. “That allows the attacker time to gain a lot of knowledge and do a lot of damage,” he said.While none of Weiner’s clients have made large-scale changes to their security in reaction to the Sony attack specifically, cybersecurity is becoming a bigger focus in general. “There has been increased investment in information security and increased awareness of the risk and threats of these kind of attacks,” he says. “We’re starting to see information security as a boardroom issue, it’s getting much more attention.”One example companies could follow is in the technology sector, where most firms have been tightening their security measures during the past 18 months in response to revelations about the digital spying tactics of the U.S. government.Documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden revealed that the U.S. government had been tapping into the computer networks of Google, Yahoo, Facebook and other technology companies in search of emails and other electronic communications that might uncover terrorist plots and other illegal activity. The U.S. government has maintained that it has never collected the kind of highly personal details stolen in the Sony Pictures breach. But tech companies being targeted by the NSA have since tried to thwart the surveillance by encrypting their internal email systems as well as the free accounts available to the general public. Both Google and Apple, the makers of the world’s leading software for mobile devices, also are automatically encrypting the data stored on smartphones so the information is indecipherable to unauthorized users, including government authorities.General Motors says it has bolstered cybersecurity in the past two years by bringing information technology in-house from outside vendors. The auto giant has a cybersecurity chief on staff to prevent hackers from getting into GM vehicle computers and has consolidated electronic data storage from 23 centres worldwide into two located near Detroit.“I would say we have a higher level (of security) than some other companies do,” says spokeswoman Jennie Ecclestone.A key to thwarting attacks is knowing your enemy and figuring out exactly who might want to hurt your company, adds Tom Chapman, head of cyber-operations at EdgeWave Security in San Diego.“In the past people were looking for a firewall or an individual product,” for protection, says Chapman, a retired Navy intelligence officer who specialized in hunting down hackers. “Now, they’re realizing there is a human element. They need to understand who might be after them. By better understanding your likely adversaries, you can better craft your defence.”___AP Writers Mike Liedtke in San Francisco, Bernard Condon, Anne D’Innocenzio and Joe Pisani in New York, Tom Krisher in Detroit, and Ted Bridis in Washington, D.C., contributed to this report. read more

Unfair misapplied global policies stack odds against island States Saint Lucia tells

“Global policies, programmes and strategies remain unfairly unaccommodating to these very real and true challenges,” criticized Mr. Chastanet, who was among several leaders from Caribbean island nations to address the Assembly’s annual general debate.Indeed, Saint Lucia remains “economically vulnerable to de-risking and the loss of correspondent banking relations,” he explained, referring to the practice by global financial institutions of terminating or restricting business relationships with remittance companies and smaller local banks in certain regions of the world.Small islands and middle-income countries often could not get concessionary finance and their reputations are unfairly tarnished by tax labels.“We continue to struggle under the weight of international frameworks that do not provide an enabling environment for my country to chart an effective sustainable development path, or even to be able to take control of our own destiny,” he continued.He stressed that even with the odds stacked against them, small island developing states and middle-income countries must find innovative new ways to grow their economies while ensuring environmental and social protections.In preparing for the current hurricane season, he explained that because Saint Lucia had to spend three times as much money than it did last season, it imposed a water tax to assist with desilting its dam, a gas tax for road rehabilitation and an airport tax for a new terminal, highway and flood mitigation around the airport.“I cannot delay or ignore critical infrastructure projects, therefore have no choice but to increase my debt burden, I cannot leave my country and its citizens exposed,” he spelled out.“As I speak my country is suffering from the ravages of Kirk, which was on a projected course north of Saint Lucia but changed direction overnight and moved directly over our island,” he said. “This morning Saint Lucia also suffered from an earthquake.”He said that Barbados has also been impacted and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines now lie in the storm’s path – while Dominica, the British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are still recovering, one year later.He concluded by sharing his hope that as multilateralism evolves, “we arrive at… doing what must be done.”Full statement available here. read more

Danny Alexander announces winners of £11m low emission vehicle technology competition

Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, has announced that the Technology Strategy Board has awarded £11 million to five UK automotive manufacturers to fund ground-breaking low emission vehicle technology projects to reduce emissions.Ariel, Dearman Engine, Jaguar Land Rover, Lotus Cars and Torotrak Development will all lead projects that were successful in winning funding from the Building an automotive supply chain of the future competition. Each low emission vehicle technology project has been awarded between £1.9 and £2.7 million towards its proposed costs. The total proposed cost  for all five projects is estimated £19 million, meaning TSB funding will cover almost 60% of the development costs.Each project demonstrates an innovative, business-led idea, which shows a strong potential for industrialisation, strengthening the UK’s low emission vehicle technology supply chain. Somerset-based Ariel, which currently produces the Atom sports car, will partner with four technology companies to develop an ultra-high performance production car with zero or low emissions.Meanwhile, Jaguar Land Rover will use the funding towards developing its Vehicle Integrated Powertrain Energy Recovery system in conjunction with Ford, the University of Nottingham and European Thermodynamics. Lotus Cars will also work to mature its race-proven integrated flywheel KERS system for use in its Evora road car.Iain Gray, Chief Executive of the Technology Strategy Board said, “We want to ensure that the UK is a global leader in low carbon transport technology, by bringing businesses together to work on ground-breaking projects to reduce emissions. These developments will enable us to embed innovation further into the UK automotive sector, giving us a competitive edge in this industry.”The Building an automotive supply chain of the future competition is the tenth of its kind under the Low Carbon Vehicles Innovation Platform’s integrated delivery platform (IDP).The IDP has secured funding from the Technology Strategy Board, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), regional bodies and devolved administrations.Click through for more information on the winners of the Building an automotive supply chain of the future competition.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Un papillon se dote dun supergène pour se protéger des oiseaux

first_imgUn papillon se dote d’un “supergène” pour se protéger des oiseauxLe papillon amazonien Heliconius numata est capable de reproduire sur ses ailes les motifs de papillons vénéneux afin de se protéger des oiseaux. Ce phénomène qui était déjà connu vient d’être expliqué par des chercheurs qui ont découvert que l’insecte possédait une espèce de “supergène”.Selon une étude publiée vendredi dans la revue Nature, l’étonnant système de protection contre les oiseaux du papillon d’Amazonie Heliconius numata découle d’un “supergène”. En effet, ce papillon est en mesure de reproduire les motifs pourtant complexes des ailes de six espèces de papillons vénéneux différents, parmi lesquels le Melinaea. Ces insectes ayant un goût amer et désagréable, les oiseaux préfèrent s’en tenir éloignés. Comme le souligne Richard French-Constant, de l’université d’Exeter, “ce phénomène avait intrigué les scientifiques pendant des siècles, y compris Darwin lui-même”. Ainsi, “nous avons été réellement frappés par ce que nous avons découvert”, déclare de son côté Mathieu Joron, du Museum national d’histoire naturelle de Paris, qui a dirigé les recherches de l’équipe franco-britannique.En effet, le fameux “supergène” de ces papillons est situé sur un seul chromosome et comprend en fait une trentaine de gènes contrôlant ensemble plusieurs caractères comme la couleur des ailes. Ils ont la particularité d’être “hérités en bloc” par la génération suivante, explique Mathieu Joron qui a également précisé à l’AFP que le “maintien des bonnes combinaisons” permettant d’imiter différentes espèces de papillons vénéneux est dû un “mécanisme presque inespéré”. Une particularité transmise au fil des générations À lire aussiLe tardigrade, cet animal quasi indestructible, révèle la clé de ses super-pouvoirsNéanmoins, l’existence de groupes coordonnés de gènes, appelés “supergène” donc, était déjà connue chez d’autres espèces, comme les primevères ou chez certains papillons de nuit, explique TV5monde. Ainsi, à l’intérieur même du “supergène”, l’ordre des gènes varie chez les papillons Heliconius, ce qui explique qu’ils arborent des motifs de couleur différents. Certains gènes se retrouvent même placés à l’envers, “tête bêche”, ce qui empêche “le processus naturel de recombinaison” génétique lors de la reproduction, souligne-t-il. “Les gènes se comportent comme des blocs soudés, ce qui évite la formation de formes intermédiaires” de papillons qui perdraient ainsi l’avantage du mimétisme.Le 20 août 2011 à 15:51 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Gunman barges onto Seattle bus shoots driver with video

first_img SEATTLE — A gunman barged onto a bus and shot the driver during rush hour in busy downtown Seattle on Monday, sparking a foot chase that ended when he ran onto another bus carrying about 15 people and was cut down when an officer fired through the windows, authorities said.The officers had to make a “life-and-death” decision about whether to shoot the suspect on the second bus, Seattle Assistant Police Chief Paul McDonagh said.“I believe they made the right choice,” he said.The wounded, 67-year-old driver was in satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center, and the suspect was in critical condition, hospital spokeswoman Leila Gray said. Their names were not immediately released.Two officers and several passengers on the second bus suffered minor injuries. Bullet holes in the windows suggested they might have been hit by flying glass. None had been shot.Police were investigating what led to the shooting at a bus stop at Third Avenue and Union, just before 9 a.m. as rush hour was ending. A King County Metro bus with multiple bullet holes in its windshield and side window is seen in downtown Seattle after a bus driver was shot Monday.last_img read more

After pushback public comment period on Pebble Mine extended

first_imgMap of the Bristol Bay region. The Pebble Deposit location is indicated by the red box. (Photo courtesy U.S. EPA)A public comment period on the environmental impact of the proposed Pebble Mine has been extended.Listen nowThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced on April 6 that it would add two months to its initial scoping period. Public comments during that scoping process help the Corps decide what to focus on during the environmental review of the project.The Corps had initially scheduled a 30-day scoping period that would have ended in April. Now, people will have until June 29 to weigh in.Alaska Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Andy Mack and Senator Lisa Murkowski wrote to the Corps asking for more time. Both said the federal review process needs to include longer public comment periods given the scope of the massive mining project.Murkowski also asked the Corps to reach out to Alaska Native Corporations and expand its outreach to rural communities in the Nushagak River watershed who are likely to be impacted by the mine.The mine would be located near some of the richest salmon fisheries in the world.last_img read more

Recycling used paper for a noble cause

first_imgHyderabad: A city-based NGO,Yuvatha, has come up with a unique idea of recycling old books and distributing them in government schools.As there are many deprived children studying in the government schools, who do not have the means to purchase new notebooks, Yuvatha has taken up the initiative to meet the needs by distributing notebooks. According to Nilesh Maripalli, the president ofYuvatha, SakethKothamasuquit his job and founded this NGO in 2011, as he wanted to do something for the society, especially for children.The NGO is based in Musheerabad. Our NGO undertakes various projects to serve the needy which includes ECO–Hub for raising awareness about ecological issues, and Helping Hands for providing recycled books to children. Also Read – TSBB, NGC promotes eco-friendly Ganeshas Advertise With Us The recycling of old books commenced in 2018 and there are more than 200 people volunteering to support the NGO’s cause. “Many corporate schools, colleges, concerned citizens, corporates supported us by donating wastepaper. We approached the DistrictEducational Officer’s office, Hyderabad, to help us in selecting the government schools for distribution,”said Nilesh Maripalli.

This year so far, the NGO has collected over 22,000 kg of used paper, newspapers, magazines and other paper material from schools, colleges, corporate companies, and gated communities and recycled them into 60,000 new notebooks and distribution is in the process. Last month around 800 books were distributed at the Government High School in Ameerpet. Last year 25,000 kg paper was collected, and 71,000 notebooks were distributed in more than 25 government schools and over 14,000 children benefited from this drive, says Nilesh.last_img read more

May to rule out halfin EU deal

first_imgBritish Prime Minister Theresa May speaks during a press conference. Photo: AFPBritish Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday is expected to say she favours a clean break from the European Union, dismissing a “half-in, half-out” Brexit deal with Brussels.In a highly-anticipated speech, May is likely to give further signals that Britain is heading to what analysts call a “hard” Brexit.That direction will be cheered by those who want to leave the EU, but dismay those who fear the impact on Britain’s economy.“Not partial membership of the European Union, associate membership of the European Union, or anything that leaves us half-in, half-out,” the prime minister is due to say on Tuesday, according to an extract of her speech circulated in advance to the media by Downing Street.“We do not seek to adopt a model already enjoyed by other countries. We do not seek to hold on to bits of membership as we leave,” she will add.The speech will take place late morning at Lancaster House, a central London mansion that is a showcase for diplomatic functions and major announcements.It will be dissected for every detail about May’s Brexit strategy, after months of uncertainty.May has repeated a “Brexit means Brexit” mantra-on one occasion replaced with her call for a “red, white and blue Brexit”-while claiming outlining the government’s aims in any detail would give Brussels the upper hand in negotiations.But recent indicators suggest Britain is heading towards a full break from the EU which entails leaving the single market in order to have full control over immigration.Downing Street has repeatedly said it wants to secure the best deal for the British economy while allowing for cuts to immigration.But the EU has been clear that single market access is dependent on allowing the free movement of people.The prospect of a “hard” Brexit has hit sterling.In early trading on Monday, the British currency plunged to $1.1986, its lowest level since October’s “flash crash” that had sent it to a 31-year low of $1.1841. It clawed back some of its losses by early afternoon, to $1.2047.Trump and trade dealBritain’s Finance minister Philip Hammond adopted a tough line on Sunday, warning that Britain might undercut the EU economically in order to remain competitive if it faces EU tariffs.Hammond said he wanted Britain to remain a “recognisably European-style economy with European-style taxation systems, European-style regulation systems.”However, London would have to change course “if we are forced”, in order to “regain competitiveness”, he told Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper on Sunday.In recent weeks, May raised the possibility of a transitional deal with Brussels to ease Britain’s departure from the bloc, a position supported by Bank of England governor Mark Carney.Britain’s post-EU prospects were given a verbal boost on Sunday by US President-elect Donald Trump, who said he favoured a quick trade deal with the UK.But a fast-track bilateral deal with Washington will be difficult in practical terms.Under EU rules Britain cannot sign trade deals with third party states until it is formally outside the bloc, a position which does not change despite the UK voting to leave.A two-year negotiating period is foreseen in EU legislation for any country choosing to leave the 28-member bloc, a process which starts by triggering Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty.May has promised to formally launch Brexit talks by the end of March and the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has said there should be an agreement in place ahead of the European Parliament elections in 2019.But even if the prime minister’s plan outlined on Tuesday wins widespread support, legal challenges could still scupper her Brexit timetable.Britain’s Supreme Court is due to rule later this month on whether May must seek parliamentary approval before triggering Article 50, which could delay the start of Brexit negotiations.last_img read more

Baltimore County Exec Kevin Kamenetz Announces New WMBE Program

first_imgTowson – Kevin Kamenetz, the Baltimore County, Md. executive, on July 27 announced he would be signing an executive order expanding the scope of the county’s Open for Business initiative, he announced  at a press conference in the County Executive’s Office.The order aims to increase the percentage of dollars appropriated to minority- and women-owned businesses by enabling smaller businesses to secure prime, or direct contracts with the county.Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz (Courtesy Photo/“We’re delighted to do this because it’s the right thing to do and it makes great fiscal sense for the county as well,” Kamenetz said.The executive reasons that expanding the pool of eligible contractors will spur competition thus driving down bids and saving the county dollars while expanding opportunities to underrepresented demographics.Under the previous arrangement for bids, goals have been consistently set and exceeded, the executive said.Early reporting on Women and Minority Business Enterprises (WMBE) targets indicates the county is “on target” to reach a 17 percent rate of participation for the last year, a Baltimore County Executive Office press release stated. “We’re happy that we have been exceeding our goals. We’ve really been averaging almost closer to 19 percent for subcontracting,” Kamenetz said.Despite the statistical successes, Kamenetz says he’s been receiving pressure to do more from contractors.“They would say, ‘Listen,we applaud your great success in achieving and exceeding our goals for WMBE subcontractors, but we also think we need greater participation as a prime contractor,’” Kamenetz said.While Baltimore County is 35 percent non-White and somewhere close to 50 percent female, Keith Dorsey, director of the Department of Budget and Finance told the AFRO the county’s goal was only 17 percent because that was how many businesses were studied and then determined to be “ready and willing.”On the day of the signing,  Kamenetz was also slated to promote the program during a workshop at the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology where 200 registered persons were registered to attend, his office said.Kamenetz said his administration has always been open to expanding the rolls of WMBE prime and subcontractors, but the issue was one of outreach and getting information to contractors that might be discouraged by the previous system.The AFRO asked the executive to explain the benefits of this new arrangement for women and minorities.“We’re a very diverse county,” Kamenetz said. “We’re 35 percent non-White and you want to let everyone have the benefit of the opportunity to participate in doing business with the county. If you don’t open up your doors to those who previously did not have opportunity, then you have complaints of a ‘good ‘ol boy’ network or that the same people tend to get the same jobs all the time. And when that happens, you don’t tend to have any innovation, you don’t tend to have any price competition to the highest degree that you want. So obviously, there’s the side benefit of the equity argument that you’re opening up economic opportunities for all neighborhoods. But those are the primary goals that we would like to achieve and we think that is good public policy.”last_img read more

If scientists swabbed that grody brick for germs, they might find some of these nasties and, sadly, almost definitely the last one: E. coli, staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus, yeast and fecal matter. And, shoot, that’s just the short list, guys.   It’s a vicious cycle. You touch your phone dozens of times a day at least, maybe even hundreds. And the germs you come into contact with from everything you paw between phone zone sessions — doorknobs, dollars, elevator buttons, toilet seats, etc. — get all over you and, inevitably, all over your precious phone, too. Yuck.Related: Hypochondriac’s Dream: Sickweather App Tells You Where Germs Lurk Near You Disinfectant wipes are a decent temporary solution, but they can’t kill all bacteria and viruses all of the time. And flimsy screen protectors are a pain to put on and typically don’t last very long. The bugs win, whatever you do.  Microsoft knows this, and it feels your heebie-jeebies and wants to make it all better. Hopefully 99.9 percent better. Last week the tech behemoth briefly blogged about its new patent for a UV light system that it says could automatically disinfect mobile device touchscreens — and apparently even your fingertips as well.Related:  Is Your Office Making You Sick?The potential antimicrobial cleaning system would be centered around a UV and visible light transparent film material that would go onto or in touchscreen-equipped devices. “UV light is emitted from a UV light source into an edge of the transparent film material in order to transfer the UV light through the transparent film material while remaining in the transparent film material through total internal reflection effect,” the patent reads, per the April 10 Microsoft blog post. “Some UV light exits the transparent film material at points of contact to disinfect fingertips and immediate surrounding areas through the frustrated total internal reflection effect.”We hope Microsoft moves forward with the fresh initiative. It could offer a nice, simple solution to a really disgusting problem, one that most of us would rather not think about and are too lazy to properly deal with on our own. Too bad the auto-cleaning system would probably only be available for the company’s own touchscreen gizmos, like Microsoft Surface tablets and Microsoft Lumia smartphones, as hinted at in the blog post.Related: The Makers of This Solar-Powered Technology Want to Eliminate a Global Sanitation Issuecenter_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.last_img read more

Exinmates regret destruction of notorious Syrian prison

first_img“I decided I will not say anything then, but one day I will go out and tell what the regime used to do with us,” said Aboudehn, bursting into tears. “May God curse this regime and those people who despised humanity!”When he was moved to Sadnaya Prison, a facility near Damascus where dissidents also were known to have suffered mistreatment, he said it was like “a five-star hotel” in comparison.Aboudehn, who heads the Committee of Lebanese in Syrian Prisons, regretted the destruction of Tadmur by the Islamic State militants.“They demolished a historic symbol that should have stayed, because in every room there were people who were killed,” he said.A 2001 report by Amnesty International titled “Syria: Torture, Despair and Dehumanization in Tadmur Military Prison” catalogued routine abuses against prisoners, including the use of iron bars, whips and cables.“Tadmur Prison appears to have been designed to inflict the maximum suffering, humiliation and fear on prisoners and to keep them under the strictest control by breaking their spirit,” it said.Blowing up the facility may have been part of attempts by the extremists to gain popularity among those who suffered at the hands of the Syrian government. But residents and former prisoners called it a huge mistake. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement BEIRUT (AP) — For decades, the mere mention of Tadmur Prison was enough to send chills down a Syrian’s spine.The notorious facility in the desert of central Syria was where thousands of dissidents were reported to have been beaten, humiliated and systematically tortured for opposing the Assad family’s rule.This weekend, it was demolished by the Islamic State group, which took over the site near the ancient town of Palmyra last month, bringing mixed emotions from many Syrians who wanted it to remain standing so future generations would know its horrors. FILE – This photo released on Saturday, May 30, 2015 by a militant website, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, shows Tadmur prison, blown up and destroyed by the Islamic State group in Palmyra (Tadmur in Arabic), Homs province, Syria. The prison was where government opponents were held, and reports over the years said it was the site of beatings and torture. (Militant website via AP, File) Sponsored Stories Aboudehn showed the torture marks on both his legs, as well as his permanently dislocated right arm.He recalls the warden telling a gathering of detainees shortly after they arrived: “You have come to your end, there is no mercy here. God is prohibited from entering the jail. We are God. We decide if you live or die.”Aboudehn said he was regularly beaten and humiliated during the four years and eight months he spent there. The jailers never referred to him with his real name, calling him “No. 13” instead.He was held in a cell with about 150 inmates who all shared one bathroom. For food, each prisoner received three loaves of Arabic bread, an olive and a teaspoon of marmalade a day, as well as one egg that was shared among five inmates.Prisoners were completely cut off from the outside world, Aboudehn said, recalling that the first time he knew the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union collapsed was in 1993, well after those events happened.Aboudehn broke down when he recalled looking through a keyhole and seeing a soldier urinating in the food that he and those in his cell were about to eat. He refused to eat but didn’t have the courage to tell the others what he had seen for fear of being killed by his jailers. Instead, he told his fellow inmates that he wasn’t feeling well. Yassin Al Haj Saleh, who spent 16 years in Syrian prisons and wrote a book about his experiences, said he was saddened by the news, “as if they have destroyed my home.”“I dreamt that I would visit it someday. … I had imagined that visiting the prisons where I spent time would serve as closure,” he wrote on his Facebook page.“The destruction of a prison that was the symbol of our slavery is the destruction of our freedom as well. Of course, it’s a huge service to the Assad regime of slavery,” he added.Al-Khatib said he and his friends used to dream of entering the prison one day and documenting what happened inside.“Now that Daesh destroyed the crime scene, it is more difficult to know what happened,” he said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State. “I am totally against destroying it, although it represents a dark page of Palmyra and Syria’s history. It should have stayed as a witness to this dark period.”Syrian opposition figure Radwan Ziadeh wrote on his Facebook page that Tadmur Prison “should have been kept as a museum for future generations as evidence of degradation of human beings during the Assad rule.” Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober “They destroyed our memories, our catastrophe and the walls that we leaned on and told our stories to,” said Ali Aboudehn, a Lebanese who spent four harrowing years in Tadmur. “They destroyed the land that absorbed our blood because of torture.”The sprawling prison — once one of Syria’s darkest secrets — is located a few miles east of Palmyra, a desert oasis famous for its Roman-era colonnades, temples and artifacts. There were fears that the Islamic State militants might destroy the 2,000-year-old heritage site.Instead, over the weekend, they focused their destructive efforts on Tadmur Prison.The extremists released photos that showed men carrying plastic containers apparently filled with explosives. A video showed parts of the prison in rubble.Osama al-Khatib, a Syrian opposition activist who fled Palmyra for Turkey three weeks ago, said the militants destroyed only the part of the prison that held members of the military, including army defectors. He said the facility where political prisoners were held is still intact. His report could not be independently verified.Located about 250 kilometers northeast of Damascus, Tadmur Prison is part of a walled-off military complex that includes military and civilian units as well as an air base. Former prisoners say it could hold up to 7,000 inmates, although the number fell in recent years. By the time IS swept into Palmyra last month, the inmates had been moved elsewhere and the prison was empty. Under President Bashar Assad’s father and predecessor, Hafez Assad, the prison held mostly members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Saddam Hussein Baathists and loyalists of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.The bloodiest incident in Tadmur’s history came in June 1980, a day after members of the Muslim Brotherhood staged a failed assassination attempt against Hafez Assad. In retaliation, troops belonging to Assad’s brother Rifaat reportedly entered the prison and shot up to 1,000 prisoners who belonged to the Brotherhood.Al-Khatib, who was not born at the time, said his parents told him about the incident, recalling that they heard shooting for much of that night. Afterward, the government took bulldozers from Palmyra to dig mass graves in the nearby Oweimer Mountain just north of the town, he said.“People would pass by the prison, but no one dared look inside,” al-Khatib said.Aboudehn recalls the first day he entered Tadmur in 1988, nearly a year after he was detained in Damascus for allegedly having contacts with Israel, Syria’s archenemy.He had to walk blindfolded and handcuffed between two rows of men who kicked, pushed and beat him with clubs and metal rods. His nose was broken and he bled profusely.center_img “Daesh turned it into rubble today.”___Follow Bassem Mroue and Zeina Karam at and © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Australias booming tourism industry is set for an

first_imgAustralia’s booming tourism industry is set for another boost when Qantas’ first Melbourne-Tokyo Narita service takes off this week.The new daily service is being launched in response to strong demand, as travel between Japan and Australia grows at around 20 per cent a year, and will be operated by an upgraded, two-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft fitted with Qantas’ signature Marc Newson interiors.It takes the number of seats the national carrier offers on Japanese routes each week to 6000, following the launch of new Sydney-Tokyo Haneda and Brisbane-Tokyo Narita routes in 2015 – with extensive onward connections in both countries.Inbound flights on the new route are timed to link smoothly to the rest of Qantas’ Australian domestic network, including popular destinations like Hobart, Adelaide and Perth, while outbound services will connect with Jetstar’s extensive domestic network within Japan.Qantas International CEO Gareth Evans said the new route was the latest example of the national carrier growing its international network to meet demand and unlock opportunities for Australia in Asia.“The clear message from our Japanese customers was that they wanted a direct link into Melbourne – so we’re delighted to be opening up that gateway for them today,” Mr Evans said.“We’ve had a great response from Victorian tourism operators and the many companies in Melbourne who do business with Japan.“With a new Free Trade Agreement in place, there’s tremendous potential to build on the fantastic growth we’ve already seen in this market, and we want the Qantas Group to lead the way in making it happen.”The route launch means Tokyo becomes the eighth international destination Qantas serves out of the Victorian capital. Flights to Christchurch began on 4 December, while Qantas confirmed earlier this week that Melbourne-Los Angeles would be the launch route for its game-changing Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.Features of the Airbus A330 that serve the new route include the latest generation of its award-winning Recaro seat in Economy, a lie-flat Business Suite that can be reclined during take-off and landing, and more than 1500 inflight entertainment options.QF79 is set to depart Melbourne at 9.15am and QF80 will depart from Narita at 7pm, with launch celebrations in both cities, including a water cannon salute and ribbon cutting ceremony.last_img read more

Commission names and shames Cyprus for aggressive tax planning

first_imgThe European Commission said that Cyprus is among seven member states facilitating aggressive tax planning and does so even after taking steps to address it.“However, the existence of specific tax rules combined with the lack of some anti-abuse rules, suggest that Cyprus’ corporate income tax rules may still be used in tax avoidance structures,” the European Commission said in its 2018 European Semester report on Wednesday.Rules facilitating the aggressive tax planning in Cyprus included the corporate tax residency, the absence of withholding taxes on dividend – which applies in the case of non-residents – interest and royalty payments by Cypriot companies and potential risks associated with the design of notional interest regimes, the Commission said.The other six member states of the EU engaging in aggressive tax planning are Belgium, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta and the Netherlands.An indication of Cyprus’s aggressive tax planning practices is the higher than the EU average revenue from value added tax (VAT) and corporate income tax as a percentage of economic output, the Commission said. While in the EU, the share of VAT revenue and corporate tax were in 2016 7 per cent and 2.6 per cent, in Cyprus they made up 9.2 per cent and 5.8 per cent respectively.By contrast, Cyprus’s effective corporate tax rate was 13.1 per cent in 2016, versus a 20.9 per cent average in the EU, it said.“As a result, Cyprus appears exposed to corporate income tax revenue decreases due to potential changes in the international corporate tax framework eliminating incentives for tax planning,” it added.Further, a study shows that Cyprus’ high inward and outward foreign direct investment stocks can be only partly explained by real economic activity in the country, the European Commission continued.“The high levels of dividend and interest payments as percentage of gross domestic product continue to suggest that its tax rules are used by companies that engage in aggressive tax planning.”“The absence of withholding taxes on dividend, interest and royalty payments by Cyprus-based companies may lead to those payments escaping tax altogether, if they are also not subject to tax in the recipient jurisdiction,” the Commission said.“This absence, together with the corporate tax residency rules, may continue to facilitate aggressive tax planning. Notional interest deduction regimes, while helping to reduce the debt equity bias, can also be used for tax avoidance purposes if not properly safeguarded.”Sven Giegold, a Green member of the European Parliament, commented in response to the Commission’s step to name and shame the seven countries for their aggressive tax planning practices, that it “at last” acknowledged their role.“The big offenders are not just distant tropical locations like Panama and Bermuda,” Giegold said in an emailed statement, hours after the publication.“By naming and shaming the worst offenders, the Commission has corrected the huge error made by the Council in excluding EU countries from its blacklist of tax havens,” he said in reference to a December 5, document naming initially 17 countries as non-cooperative jurisdictions.On January 23, the EU Commission removed eight countries from the list which now includes American Samoa, Bahrain, Guam, Marshall Islands, Namibia, Palau, Saint Lucia, Samoa and Trinidad and Tobago.The EU’s “big offenders are not just distant tropical locations,” the German MEP added. “The countries singled out today owe it to their citizens, and people all across Europe, to bring forward robust plans to end their complicity in tax dodging.”You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
