DHS Issues Hacking Alert to Small Plane Owners

first_imgThe Department of Homeland Security has issued a security alert for small plane owners, warning them that modern flight systems remain vulnerable to hacking if someone manages to gain physical access to an aircraft.An alert from the DHS critical infrastructure computer emergency response team recommends that plane owners restrict unauthorized physical access to their aircraft until the industry comes up with safeguards to address the issue, which was discovered by Boston-based cybersecurity company Rapid7.The agency adds there is no evidence that anyone has exploited the vulnerability at this point, but that officials had confirmed the security flaw and decided that it was necessary to issue the alert.Rapid7’s tests showed that an attacker could possibly disrupt electronic messages from being transmitted across a small plane’s network by attaching a small device to the aircraft’s wiring. Subsequently, engine readings, compass data, altitude and other readings “could all be manipulated to provide false measurements to the pilot,” states the DHS alert.Large aircraft typically use more complex systems and are required to meet additional security requirements. The DHS alert also does not apply to older small planes, which use mechanical control systems.Jeffrey Troy, president of the Aviation Information Sharing and Analysis Center, echoes the need to improve security in networked operating systems, but adds that hacking depends on being able to bypass physical security controls that are mandated by law. He concludes that with access, “you have hundreds of possibilities to disrupt any system or part of an aircraft.”The Federal Aviation Administration said in its own statement that a hacking scenario is unlikely, but that the Rapid7 report is “an important reminder to remain vigilant” regarding physical and cybersecurity aircraft procedures.last_img read more

Mayors Cast Wishes For 2016

first_imgBy John BurtonAs we look ahead to 2016, we take stock on our lives and often make those resolutions to better ourselves. We say we’re going to lose weight, quit smoking, exercise more and take other steps to improve our lot in life. Mayors also have to take into consideration the future of their communities they govern. And many of the Two River area’s mayors offered their hopes for this year.MONMOUTH BEACH – “No snowstorms and no hurricanes!” was Mayor Susan Howard’s wish for the year, as the shore community moves toward completing its recovery from 2012’s Super Storm Sandy. “And everybody will be home,” able to return to the renovated, rebuilt and often elevated homes, she continued.The municipality is in the process of elevating and repairing its Sandy-damaged public library. And when that work is completed, officials will begin work on raising and additional repairs to borough hall. Howard said that work is on track to be finished this year. With that, “Monmouth Beach will have completed its recovery from Sandy,” she said.HIGHLANDS – Mayor Frank Nolan’s resolution is not so dissimilar to those expressed by Howard, as Nolan looks ahead to his Sandy-ravished town. “We hope to have everyone back in their homes who aren’t there yet,” Nolan wished for the coming year. He said there remains “a few dozen families who are not done, done,” completing the rebuilding so they can again live in their homes. About 1,000 homes were damaged or destroyed by the storm.This is Nolan’s last year of his current term. “I don’t know if I’m going to go again,” he said, regarding running for another term, given he’d like to spend some additional time with his kids. But until he makes that final call, “Obviously, I want to finish we started,” in terms of the rebuilding efforts.In 2015 “We turned the corner” moving beyond victim and rebuilding, he said. Now there is progressive development, with projects in the works that will mean completely recovering the $200 million in ratables the community lost to Sandy damage.“So in the end, it’s tough to swallow now, but we’re going to be better off than we were before the storm,” He maintained. “It’s just a shame it took that devastation to get us there.”One lesson that came out of Sandy and from his last election campaign, which he said he will continue to use, is aggressive communication with the public, “letting everyone know what’s going on.” Nolan uses Facebook to keep the community informed, which complements two other Facebook pages on Highlands goings-on. “People really have a chance to learn about the issues in the town,” he said.RUMSON – Mayor John Ekdahl acknowledged that some of 2015’s steps forward couldn’t be predicted if asked about them a year ago. The establishment of the bike lanes wasn’t on the agenda last January; nor were the repairs and repaving of county thoroughfares Rumson and Ridge roads that allowed for the new bike lanes. “They weren’t planned,” not on the local level, he said. “They just sort of evolved, if you will.”“Looking ahead,” he explained, “we have a couple of planned projects,” and in a sense they are Sandy-related.Rumson has had some additional savings in its sanitary water treatment costs. And with that money “we’re going to make a long-term commitment” and address infiltration of its sewer lines over a three-year period. The system has rain and river water infiltrating the system. And that means that extra water is taken into account in the treatment cost at the regional treatment center. “Which is very expensive,” he said.The borough’s Department of Public Works facility, behind the municipal complex, 80 East River Road, and much of its accompanying equipment, were damaged by Sandy. Plans now call to have flood doors installed on the facility. In addition, the below-ground gasoline tanks, which had taken a hit from the storm, will be reinstalled above ground.“They’re not sexy or exciting projects,” Ekdahl acknowledged, “but they will save money over time.”ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – Mayor Rhonda “Randi” Le Grice, on her first day in office said there are two secrets in keeping resolutions: “One is setting goals that are realistic and the second is having the support of other people.” And her resolutions involve focusing on “what we can achieve together and not what we can’t.”To that end Le Grice said she’ll concentrate on revitalizing the borough’s First Avenue business district. She plans on working with the local Chamber of Commerce and commercial property owners to have a strategy to welcome businesses and fill vacant storefronts.“I feel we can do a better job marketing the Atlantic Highlands we all love,” she said on Jan. 1, “not only as a great place to visit, but also to work in, to shop in, and to live in and raise a family.”The incoming mayor also plans to ensure the community is better informed about events and issues. She plans on having the website revamped to make it more accessible.But Le Grice acknowledged the mayor can only do so much and called upon community members to get more involved, volunteer and serve.Those would be some ways “to turn resolutions into results,” she said.SHREWSBURY – “I think it’s going to be a positive year,” predicted Mayor Donald Burden. But he hopes county officials are able to correct the ongoing property tax assessment morass that has preoccupied local and county officials for months and apparently is the subject of a county prosecutor investigation.In the coming months the local planning board and zoning board of adjustment will have substantial applications before them for proposed senior housing and retail projects. “We want to get these businesses integrated into the community, if approved,” Burden said, “making sure we’re not putting too much pressure on our First Aid and fire departments.”The council and department heads will be drafting the municipal budget in the near future. “I can’t predict what we’re going to do in terms of taxes yet,” he acknowledged. But, he added, “I think it’ll be pretty low.”FAIR HAVEN – Mayor Ben Lucarelli had a pretty simple wish moving forward: “Let’s hope it’s a nice, calm, peaceful year,” he hoped.There are things in the works that Lucarelli said he wasn’t at liberty to discuss just yet. But plans are in the works to move forward on the planned passive park overlooking the Navesink River on DeNormandie Avenue, providing a “clean, well-lit place for residents to use,” providing another recreational opportunity, he said.Last year, the council drafted a budget that did not include a tax increase.Lucarelli hopes to be able to do it again or pretty close to it, “keeping the budget flat as we can and to maintain what it is we have,” he said.HOLMDEL – Mayor Eric Hinds said “I’m excited for the future.” And that future for Holmdel will include continuing the town’s five-year plan for road improvements, infrastructure upgrades and other community projects.Last year the town spent $2.6 million for various projects. “We’ll probably spend a similar amount this year and next few,” on the projects, he said.“We have aggressive goals,” he offered. And those goals include renovating the public library and investigating the construction of a recreation center for local youth.“We want to make sure we’re a premier spot for families,” he said.MIDDLETOWN ­– “The snowless winter we’ve had so far, we’re off to a good start for the year,” saving money on employee overtime and road treatment, said Township Committeeman Gerard Scharfenberger, selected to serve as this year’s mayor.The five-member township committee will undertake an aggressive plan to generate economic development. “Every time you see a half-empty strip mall or an empty office building, that’s a big drain on the town,” he acknowledged.The committee will be reviewing ordinances “to see what can be done to make us more business friendly,” he saidThere are a number of shared service agreements in the works with county government and the board of education that will curb costs and generate some revenue, offering some relief to taxpayers, he said.As mayor, Scharfenberger will initiate a Mayor’s Wellness Campaign that could help in employee health care costs and help employees’ health. In addition, he’ll reach out to community groups to keep them informed.“Anybody who has any interest,” he said. “That gives me a chance to educate them on how the system works.”LITTLE SILVER – Mayor Robert Neff Jr., last year saw his town change a long-standing tradition of no liquor licenses and embrace that change. Now he and the borough council members will undertake drafting the ordinance that will lay out the provisions and regulations for a future restaurant and bar. “We changed our minds last year,” Neff observed at the Little Silver reorganization meeting, offering his annual prepared rhyming couplets. “We changed our minds last year by vote, a license is to be / A family style watering hole? Or gourmet fare? We’ll see…”This year plans call for paving Prospect Avenue and new sidewalks for Church Street. And the borough received a county Open Space grant for to renovate the borough’s sports field.The borough will have a new communications tower built this year—improving cellphone receptions and emergency communications in the community. And the historic Parker Homestead will have work done on its dilapidated barns.last_img read more

Sports Betting Legalized in New Jersey

first_imgBy Jay Cook |OCEANPORT – Get ready to place your bets.Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill legalizing sports betting statewide Monday afternoon, four days after state lawmakers put the bill on his desk.While it’s anticipated sports betting revenues could help revitalize Atlantic City’s casino industry and the state horse racing industry, the biggest benefactor could be Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, which hedged its future on the influx of sports betting revenue to save it.Murphy and track operator and owner Dennis Drazin will take New Jersey’s first legal bets there at 10 a.m. Thursday morning.“Today, we’re finally making the dream of legalized sports betting a reality for New Jersey,” Murphy said in a statement Monday.Drazin said “today is a great day for New Jersey.” Monmouth Park had been geared up to commence sports betting almost immediately after the Supreme Court shot down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 on May 14. Monmouth Park has funneled nearly $3 million into building and expanding the William Hill sportsbook on site.“I look forward to the Governor joining us at Monmouth Park Racetrack on Thursday morning to usher in a new era for New Jersey by placing the first bet,” Drazin said in a statement.With the bill passage comes excitement in Oceanport. Monmouth Park the borough’s largest employer and taxpayer and now it can compete with racetracks on a national level, said Oceanport Borough Council President Joe Irace.“We’re very excited,” Irace said. “This is great news for New Jersey, Monmouth County and Oceanport. This goes a long way to preserving and protecting horse racing in Monmouth Park. It’s great news for everybody.”State lawmakers in the Assembly and Senate simultaneously passed similar sports wagering legalization bills on Thursday but Drazin and other track operators didn’t open their sports books until they had a blessing from Murphy.Bettors must be 21 or older to wager and cannot bet on New Jersey high school or college events involving Garden State teams or even in the state.Although the NBA Finals and NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are over and done, the Major League Baseball season is well underway, and the FIFA World Cup will begin later this week.“I’m just super excited,” said Irace. “Really happy for Monmouth Park and Dennis Drazin who put up the fight from Day One on this. Everyone counted him out on this and he was the last man standing.”Read more about the legalization of sports betting in the print edition of The Two River Times later this week.last_img read more

GARDA TRIED TO TAKE HER LIFE AFTER SEX ASSAULT AND HARASSMENT – COURT TOLD

first_imgA female Garda has revealed how she tried to take her own life after being sexually assaulted and harassed by a fellow Garda, a court has heard.Letterkenny Circuit Court is today continuing to hear harrowing details of the case against a married Garda.The Garda, who is in his 30s, denies seven charges of sexual assault and two charges of harassment against two female colleagues. Today’s evidence has so far consisted of defence barrister Peter Nolan cross-examining the first female Garda to make the claims.The incidents are all alleged to have happened between November 2010 and May 2011.The woman again revealed how she was sexually assaulted by the other officer on thee occasions – twice in the Garda station they worked and once in a patrol car.The woman revealed how she is “one hundred per cent sure” how she knows the man rubbed his erect penis against her.Mr Nolan read some of the woman’s statement back to her in which it was mentioned she tried to take her own life during the alleged campaign of harassment.Mr Nolan asked the woman why, as a trained officer, did she not make a formal complaint until much later.The woman replied “My head was spinning and my stomach was turning and I was processing all these thought. Does she think we’re having an affair with him.”Mr Nolan replied “Surely this was the time to scotch all these rumours and to say he was sexually assaulting you. It was up to you to make a complaint.“You had him there and a Sergeant you trusted and you were almost vomiting. You never made a complaint until this statement.“Why didn’t you nip this in the bud when you had the opportunity to do this? If you had made the complaint none of this prosecution would before the courts.”He then claimed this was a “storm in a teacup” to get back at the accused.“I think what you are saying is absurd,” answered the woman.Mr Nolan answered the only absurd thing was three years later that she was now here as if her world had fallen apart.“You are a very callous man. I would disagree with 90% of what you have said,” replied the woman.Again some leading members of the Garda force are in court including Chief Superintendent Terry McGinn.The case continues.COPYRIGHT DONEGALDAILY.COMGARDA TRIED TO TAKE HER LIFE AFTER SEX ASSAULT AND HARASSMENT – COURT TOLD was last modified: October 31st, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Gardasex assaultlast_img read more

Ranieri declares Fulham are ‘alive’ after comeback

first_imgClaudio Ranier is confident Fulham will stay up.[Picture: Simon Matthews/PA Wire]Claudio Ranieri declared Fulham are “alive” again following the dramatic 4-2 win over Brighton.Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice as the Whites came from two goals down to breathe life into their relegation battle.Fulham, who had lost all four of their previous matches since the turn of the year, were staring down the barrel of another defeat after two first-half goals from Glenn Murray.But Calum Chambers pulled one back with his first Fulham goal before two trademark Mitrovic headers put the hosts in front, and Luciano Vietto opened his account with the fourth to wrap up the victory.“This three points means that we are alive, we can see a little light in front of us,” said manager Ranieri.“It is only a little step but we are alive. We showed very good fighting spirit.“It was a very strange match, we were 2-0 down after 17 minutes. At half-time, I gave confidence to my players and positivity. I told them we are in the match.“The goal from Chambers was very important, it gave the players the opportunity to say ‘we can do something good tonight’.“We deserved to win and we played very good football.”Murray had not scored in his previous nine Premier League matches but found Fulham’s defence as accommodating as usual – he had tucked away his sixth and seventh goals in his last five games against them.Yet somehow Fulham clawed themselves back into the contest two minutes after the interval, Chambers beating Mat Ryan from 20 yards before Mitrovic twice threw himself in where it hurts to turn the match on its head.A nervous final 10 minutes looked in prospect until Tom Cairney struck the crossbar and Vietto tucked the rebound away to complete the dramatic turnaround.Fulham remain second from bottom but are now two points behind Cardiff and five from safety.It is now three straight defeats for Brighton, and manager Chris Hughton said: “Of course I was angry afterwards. You don’t expect to concede four goals. That’s not like us.“I thought as good as we were in the first half we were as poor in the second half.“Mitrovic is a very good player but we conceded poor goals. If I’m looking at the first goal we allow a player to strike from the edge of the box and that gives them momentum.“Looking at the four goals we conceded they are four poor goals which is not like us, particularly in the form we have been in. We found it hard to cope in the second half and we didn’t work hard enough.”See also:Fulham pull off brilliant comeback to beat Brighton Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youProperty Investment | Search AdsDubai Real Estate Investment Properties May Surprise YouProperty Investment | Search AdsUndoApartments for Sale | Search AdsApartments in Dubai Might Be Cheaper Than You ThinkApartments for Sale | Search AdsUndoHealth & Human Research7 Arthritis Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every DayHealth & Human ResearchUndoEasyvoyage[Photos] Top 30 of the most beautiful women in the worldEasyvoyageUndoCodigosi.com5 little everyday things to lose weightCodigosi.comUndoTopGadgetAdvisorAre You Looking For a Remedy For Neck Pain?TopGadgetAdvisorUndolast_img read more

The press in South Africa

first_imgThere are 23 daily and 14 weekly major urban newspapers in South Africa, most published in English. There are also a number of regional and community newspapers, most delivered free of charge, as well as a range of general and specialised news websites.Some 12.4-million South Africans buy the urban dailies, while community newspapers have a circulation of 5.5-million.Sections in this article:Trends in South African newspapers South Africa’s daily newspapersSouth Africa’s weekly newspapersSouth Africa’s news websitesRelated articlesUseful links Trends in South African newspapers South Africa has always had a courageous and opinionated press. For over 40 years the apartheid state tried to gag the country’s newspapers, using legislation, harassment and imprisonment, culminating in the late-1980s States of Emergency. Through all of this, South Africa’s press continued to report on all the news they could.With democracy in 1994, South Africa’s newspapers were freed from all restrictions. The country’s Constitution, adopted in 1996, explicitly protects the freedom of the press in its Bill of Rights. Section 16 states:Everyone has the right to freedom of expression, which includes – freedom of the press and other media; freedom to receive or impart information or ideas; freedom of artistic creativity; and academic freedom and freedom of scientific researchThe right in subsection (1) does not extend to- propaganda for war; incitement of imminent violence; oradvocacy of hatred that is based on race, ethnicity, gender or religion, and that constitutes incitement to cause harm. Reporters Without Borders ranks South Africa at 38 in its 2010 Press Freedom Index. This puts the country ahead of France (44), Italy (49), and the US (99).The development of the South African press since the end of apartheid has shown two significant trends: the stagnation and decline of the traditional mainstream newspapers, and the phenomenal growth of papers with a black, working class readership.The stagnation of South Africa’s mainstream press, which traditionally had a wealthy white readership, mirrors the trend in established newspapers in developed countries across the world. This stagnation is generally attributed to the growth of the internet since the dotcom crash of 2001, with more and more of those who can choosing to find their news online instead of on the printed page.On the other hand the opposite trend, the remarkable growth of newspaper readership in the lower end of the market, is a phenomenon seen in developing countries such as India and China. This is due to the vast improvement in the living standards in South Africa’s poorest communities, the major beneficiaries of change in this country. Their living conditions and general standard of living changed almost overnight as access to housing, electricity, running water, job opportunities and minimum wages came sweeping through under a new democratic government.In this vast new readership one paper stands out: Daily Sun. Launched in 2002 to fill the enormous gap in the newspaper market, this tabloid has seen its circulation rise from 78 000 in its first year to 513 291 in the first quarter of 2009 – and that is just copies sold. Its readership has increased from under half a million to 5-million for the period between January and December 2010 (South African Advertising Research Foundation).Daily Sun’s success has led to an increasing “tabloidisation” of South Africa’s newspaper industry, with a number of new tabloids being launched. These include the Afrikaans-language Son and English-language Daily Voice, both targeting working class coloured and, to a lesser extent, white readers in the Western Cape.Back to the top South Africa’s daily newspapers Note: Circulation: Number of copies sold.

Looking for a Reason to Jailbreak? How about Spotify and Google Voice?

first_imgYesterday, Swedish music service Spotifyannounced their application’s submission to Apple iTunes App Store. Spotify, which already boasts over 6 million users in Europe, is somewhat of an iTunes alternative – albeit with streaming tracks instead of downloads. However, the similarity between the two services leads some to believe that Apple, notorious for booting apps that duplicate iTunes functionality, won’t approve the new Spotify iPhone application. And in another example of Apple’s totalitarianism, the company also just pulled Google Voice and other third-party Google Voice applications from the App Store. Luckily for jailbreakers, problems like those above are less of an issue. There’s currently an open source Spotify client app available for download and the third-party GV Mobile app for Google Voice is coming soon. Spotify for iPhone JailbreakersLike the official Spotify iPhone client, the third party client app called Spot, available from Cydia, also requires a Premium account in order to work. Also like the official app, Spot lets you search for songs and build playlists. However, where the official client will let you cache playlists to listen to when the AT&T network fails or you lose your connection, the Spot application has yet to implement this type of feature according to a forum posting. That’s a big drawback, unfortunately, since the caching ability is precisely what makes Spotify feel less like a streaming service and more like a real iTunes alternative. There’s also another major issue for jailbreakers here in the U.S. looking to get on board with Spotify – the premium account. In order to run Spot, you need a premium account to sign into the app. However, in order to get a premium account, you have to sign up at Spotify.com, a site which currently prevents you from doing so because Spotify is not available in this country yet. So what good is an open source app if you don’t have a premium account, right? Fortunately, there are a few workarounds for this issue. For one, you could access the Spotify web site using a UK-based (or other European country-based) proxy server. A quick Google search presented us with several options for doing so, although we won’t point to any exact resources since this isn’t exactly the most legal way of going about things. Let’s just say this: we got to the sign up page and it was only a matter of putting in our name and account details. Another option is to purchase an account from an overseas friend who has access to the service in their country. Have them purchase the account and you pay them back after they give you the username/password. (Obviously, you’d want to go with a real friend you trust here, not some random stranger from the internet.)Either way, getting access to Spotify via Spot is a bit more difficult than we hoped it would be, but it’s not impossible if you’re really motivated. GV Mobile Coming to Cydia Although there aren’t any Google Voice alternatives available just yet, we hear that one in particular is coming soon. The third-party client application GV Mobile was among the Google Voice apps just pulled from the App Store. According to a tweet from the developer Sean Kovacs, he plans to upload the latest version of the application to Cydia (“or similar”…perhaps referring to Icy) soon. You may want to follow his Twitter account for more details as to when that occurs.For more details on jailbreaking, check out our how-to guide here. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market sarah perez A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Tags:#Apple#How To#news#web last_img read more
