View comments MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Fernandez said San Beda will file an appeal to downgrade Bolick’s disqualifying foul in time for its game against Mapua on Friday.“We’ll appeal that for sure, but how can we appeal if there’s no report? We want to know what happened, why they called it for Robert? Why? They have to justify it,” he said.Fernandez then turned his ire towards commissioner Bai Cristobal, noting that the official could have handled the matter better knowing that decisions made from that situation gravely impact some of the players’ career in the long run.Bolick is in the running for the Most Valuable Player plum, with him currently sixth in the race with averages of 13.56 points, 7.56 rebounds, and 4.67 assists.He also posted a near triple-double performance in the game with 14 markers, 11 dimes, and seven boards, but him being sent to the showers in the game against St. Benilde already rules him out of any individual plum at the end of the season.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses “Why would you throw him out?

With the Red Lions leading, 71-57, and the game already out of reach, Blazers guard Carlo Young took down Bolick, who was driving to the basket, hard late in the game. But Bolick and Clint Doliguez were also thrown out with 2:28 to play.“It’s unethical. We were already up by 14 points and it’s a fastbreak. Why endanger a guy? And then punish a guy?

I don’t want to speculate, but it’s a won game already, and then that incident happened and they penalized the other team that did not start it,” he said. “If they want us to lose ball games, then let us lose that ball game in a proper way. God, it’s so bad. It’s wrong. (We had) six fouls in fourth quarter and the other team only has one foul, and then that happens. They tackle a player? Should he be thrown out?

Canadas Canola Sector receiving help from Canadian Government

Posted on by

first_imgCanadian farmers and producers now have preferential market access to an estimated 1.5 billion consumers in more than 50 countries, with the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).According to the Government of Canada, they stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Canadian producers and want to ensure they have the support they need. The Government shares they are prepared to respond to support producers of other commodities should further trade actions occur.Strong and stable markets for our high-quality Canadian canola means more money in the pockets of our farmers and supports good, middle-class jobs for Canadian farm families. The Government of Canada will not rest until this issue is resolved for our Canadian producers, workers and communities. The announcement by Minister Bibeau shares, the Government intends to amend the Agricultural Marketing Programs Regulations to temporarily increase loan limits under the Advance Payments Program (APP). These changes will help ease cash flow pressures that farmers are facing and help them manage the impacts of market disruptions in key export countries.The regulatory amendment would change the loan limits for the APP for the 2019 year as follows:Advances of up to $1 million will be available on all commodities, more than double the previous limit of $400,000.The first $100,000 will remain interest-free on all commodities, except canola. Canola advances will be eligible for up to $500,000 (total) interest-free.As well as the announcement, Minister Bibeau shared as part of the Government of Canada’s trade diversification strategy, she will be heading to Japan in May to participate in the G20 Agriculture Ministers’ Meeting. During Minister Bibeau’s time in Japan, she will meet with Japanese industry leaders and officials from several countries to advance Canada’s agricultural trade.“Farmers deserve our support as we work to maintain full market access to China and create new opportunities for them to grow their business. We are ensuring that farmers have the security they need leading into this year’s season to help manage their cash flow, giving them the flexibility to sell their canola at the best time and at the best price. Our government will always stand up for Canadian interests and support hardworking farmers as we work closely with the grains sector, exporters and provinces to secure unrestricted market access for Canada’s high-quality canola”, said Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.As well Minister Carr announced that he will be leading a canola trade mission to Japan and South Korea in early June. Minister Carr’s outreach will build on his work to engage other high-potential countries including UAE, Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Mexico, Germany, and France. Trade missions open doors and provide on-the-ground support so that companies can compete and succeed in the international playing field.“For the last three years, our government has been focused on diversifying our trading partners and opening new markets to high-quality, Canadian-made products, including canola. Through our new trade agreements, Canadian businesses—including exporters and agri-food producers—now have preferential market access to an estimated 1.5 billion customers around the globe. This trade mission will give us another opportunity to open new doors for our canola farmers in both Japan and South Korea.” said Jim Carr, Minister of International Trade Diversification OTTAWA, ONT – The Government of Canada is committed to maintaining full market access for Canadian canola seed exports to China to support Canadian producers and their families.Canada’s canola producers will export $11 billion in canola to more than 50 countries in 2018. Canola producers are key drivers of jobs, economic prosperity and growth for the middle class, shared the Government.The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Marie-Claude Bibeau and Minister of International Trade Diversification, Jim Carr announced actions to support Canadian farm families.last_img read more

China is blocking development in South China Sea through coercive means: Pompeo

Posted on by

first_imgWashington: The US has accused China of blocking the ASEAN members accessing more than USD 2.5 trillion in recoverable energy reserves in the South China Sea by illegal construction activities. China claims almost all of the South China Sea. Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have counter claims over the area. “China’s illegal island-building in international waterways is not simply a security matter. By blocking development in the South China Sea through coercive means, China prevents the ASEAN members from accessing more than USD 2.5 trillion in recoverable energy reserves,” Pompeo said in his address at CERAWeek in Houston Tuesday night. To contrast, the US Government promotes energy security for those Southeast Asian nations, he said in his address to one of the largest gathering of global energy leaders. “We want countries in the region to have access to their own energy. We want to help them. We want to create partnerships. We want transparent transactions, not debt traps. We explore responsibly,” he said. But, China does not play by that same set of rules, he alleged. “Its values are simply different. You see that in places as diverse as Africa, where they often ship in their own labour, creating jobs for Chinese workers rather than for those in the local economy,” he said. “It’s using the debt trap which I referred to just a moment ago to put these countries in a place where it is not a commercial transaction, it’s a political transaction designed to bring harm and political influence in the country in which they’re operating,” Pompeo said. “And we all know the story in Russia,” he said. It invaded Ukraine to gain access to oil and gas reserves. It in turn deprived Ukraine of the possibility of developing those resources for itself and using its pipelines and its networks to bring energy to its own people. Rather, it uses those pipelines to put pressure political pressure on the people of Ukraine, he alleged.last_img read more

UK nerve agent victim meets Russia’s envoy in London

Posted on by

first_imgLondon: A British man poisoned along with his partner with a nerve agent, amid an assassination attempt on a Russian ex-spy in England blamed on Moscow, met its top UK envoy on Saturday, according to reports. Charlie Rowley, 45, whose partner Dawn Sturgess died after exposure to the toxin, held a 90-minute meeting with Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at Russia’s embassy in London, Britain’s Sunday Mirror said. “I went along to ask them ‘why did your country kill my girlfriend?'” he told the tabloid newspaper. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”But I didn’t really get any answers. I just got Russian propaganda,” Rowley added, saying Yakovenko’s explanations of Russian innocence in the plot were “ridiculous”. Rowley and Sturgess, a 44-year-old mother of three children, who lived near the southwestern English city of Salisbury, fell ill on June 30 last year. Authorities determined they had been exposed to Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent developed by the Soviet Union during the latter days of the Cold War. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe poison was contained in a perfume bottle that Rowley had found in Salisbury and given to Sturgess. She died eight days later but after two weeks in an induced coma, he was discharged from hospital. It followed former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia being left in critical condition after they were targeted with Novichok in Salisbury three months earlier. The pair survived and have made full recoveries, according to British authorities. Western allies accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being ultimately responsible for the poisoning, which sparked dozens of diplomatic expulsions by both sides. British prosecutors in September issued arrest warrants for two alleged officers of Russia’s military intelligence service, known as the GRU. But the Kremlin has repeatedly denounced the accusations as “unacceptable.” “The ambassador kept saying the substance definitely wasn’t the novichok they had made because if it was it would have killed everyone,” Rowley told the Mirror. “He (Yakovenko) kept on saying the British won’t talk to him so he can’t tell us anything that he hasn’t read in the media, so he can only give his view.” A Russian TV station also reported Saturday’s meeting, saying Rowley was eager for answers that Britain had failed to provide. Yakovenko gave him a book on the “unanswered questions” concerning the events in Salisbury and a tour of Russia’s grand west London embassy on one of its most exclusive streets, it added.last_img read more

Ohio State focuses on improving after 39point win

Posted on by

OSU redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) runs through the Rutgers defense toward the end zone during an Oct. 18 game at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 56-17.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorThe question for Ohio State heading into its matchup with Rutgers was simple: Will the momentum still be there?A quick 14-0 start for the No. 13 Buckeyes (5-1, 2-0) showed they still had a spark despite two weeks off. In a total team effort, OSU led the Scarlet Knights (5-2, 1-2) in nearly every significant statistical category — save penalties and time of possession — but its coach said there’s still work to be done.“It’s time to, first of all, develop depth,” Urban Meyer said after his team’s 56-17 win. “We could go on and on about the mistakes that were made today. But enjoy the win tonight, go see your families, do what you gotta do and come back ready to go.”For the Buckeyes, the time to “come back ready to go” will be Saturday when they are set to face Penn State on the road. The last time OSU faced-off with the Nittany Lions, the Scarlet and Gray came away with a 63-14 win at home. That 2013 win came at Ohio Stadium, but the last time OSU traveled to State College, Pa., the result was comparable. OSU beat Penn State, 35-23, on Oct. 27, 2012, before last season’s shellacking. On top of recent success against their upcoming opponents, the Buckeyes are on a historic streak this season against all takers.Even with any room for improvement the coaching staff might see, the 2014 Buckeyes have already carved out a spot in the OSU record books, specifically when it comes to offensive production. The team posted 50-plus points for the fourth straight game — a school record — and it gained 500 yards or more in each of those games, which is tied for the program’s best.Production of that nature would be a good sign for every team, but at least one OSU assistant said he wants to keep focusing on ways to improve instead of talking about what the Buckeyes have done lately. Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman said he’s not ready to make a judgment on where OSU stands, but added he hopes to have a clearer picture as the Big Ten schedule heats up.“Obviously the scoreboard and the play-by-play or stats say that we’re playing pretty well, but as a coach you always try to find the things that you can get better at,” Herman said after the game. “I don’t know how well we’re playing.”Meyer said it will be important for the Buckeyes to continue focusing on improvement rather than touting recent success, something he said he feels the team is able to do.“The good thing is that I don’t feel like there’s a complacent attitude,” Meyer said. “Complacency is awful in this business and with the players, because when you watch the film, we could actually have played a lot better in certain situations.”In order to find the spots where OSU could have performed better against the Scarlet Knights, it might be key to look beyond the box score.The Buckeyes totaled 31 first downs on offense while holding Rutgers to a three of 13 performance on third down on defense. OSU also outgained the opposition 585 to 345 and won the turnover battle, 3-1.Much of that success on both sides of the ball came early in the game for the Buckeyes, which led to a 35-7 advantage at the half.“Our focus is always to start fast and get things going,” redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett said after the game. “I think we executed better than in past weeks, but we can still eliminate some mistakes. I put some of that on myself.”Barrett’s own mistakes didn’t come until he had already nearly hit double digits in pass attempts, as he completed his first nine throws of the game. But after Barrett ran for two scores and threw for another in the first 10:46 of the third quarter, he and the Buckeye offense stalled.From that point on, OSU didn’t post another point and recorded just one gain of more than 14 yards.To an extent, the Buckeyes’ defense mirrored the fast start and slow finish of their offensive counterparts. Before addressing that less-than-stellar second half, Meyer praised the defense’s overall performance against a team he said the Buckeyes respected going in.“Our defense, you credit that, you can take the first half that’s a credit to our defense,” Meyer said. “They took a team that threw 400 plus yards against our rivals and really played well, creating turnovers once again and getting the ball to the offense rather quickly.”From a scoring standpoint, the Buckeyes’ matchup with Rutgers was tied for their second-best defensive outing of the season. Sophomore safety Vonn Bell credited that success to every player on the defense being “all in” on what it is trying to achieve.“You can see the progression of our players and see us getting takeaways and scoring,” Bell said after the game. “It’s very impressive this young group can understand what the coaches are telling us.”But Meyer stressed that — despite bright spots — the defense still didn’t have the start-to-finish effort he would like to see, especially when some less experienced players got a chance to make a statement late.“We gave up some runs, and when a two gets in the game there can’t be that big of a drop off,” he said of the second-string defense’s performance in the game. “And right now we all saw what happened, there’s a significant drop off when our twos got in there.”Co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell said the coaching staff tries to communicate to the backups that they need to treat their playing time the same as if they were starters.“We try to talk to those guys, ‘Hey, don’t consider yourself a two,’” Fickell said. “‘You want to be a one-B.’ That means there’s not a big drop off between the one-A and the one-B.”Even though the slow finishes to the game on both sides of the ball didn’t affect the outcome of the contest, Fickell said the Buckeyes have to make sure they stay hungry rather than settling — even after a 39-point win.“We’re never satisfied with where we are,” Fickell said. “And that’s the thing that we think that … going into what we were doing, we’ve got to be able to finish things.”Whatever adjustments or improvements the Buckeyes can make are set to be showcased after a week of practice. OSU is scheduled to take on Penn State on Saturday in State College, Pa. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. read more

JAMAICA Beneficiaries Receive Keys to New Homes

Posted on by

Andrew Holness, on Friday (February 23), handed over keys to contributors who have purchased one-bedroom units at The Estuary in Friendship, St. James.The scheme was developed under a joint venture arrangement between the National Housing Trust (NHT) and West Indies Home Contractors Limited.  When completed, The Estuary will comprise 1,500 units and supporting infrastructure on 254 acres of land.  The development is being done at a cost of $7 billion, and is targeted at low income earners.In his remarks, Mr. Holness said the NHT is on track to issue 8,000 mortgages for the 2017/18 financial year.“This is the highest it has done in any decade. You can see that the Government is being very effective in using an institution like the NHT to create housing solutions for the people,” he stated.The Prime Minister commented that the NHT was designed to promote formal home ownership in Jamaica, however “the challenge has always been to find a way to ensure that every Jamaican has access to this formal process”.“I have made it a point of duty to come to all of these ceremonies, whether it is groundbreaking or handing over, to prove the point that the Government of Jamaica can use the resources at its disposal in an efficient and effective way to achieve Government policy and to deliver benefits to the people in a timely way,” he added.Meanwhile, Mr. Holness has given the commitment that the roadway leading to the community.“There are plans already in place for the roads to be repaired and this will happen in short order. And you will notice, that not just here, but right across Jamaica, that the National Works Agency (NWA), has been conducting an island wide patching programme,” he stated.Release: JIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Instagram website leaked phone numbers and emails for months researcher says

Posted on by

first_img Post a comment Share your voice Tags Hacking Privacy 0 Security Internet The exposure appeared to include contact information for thousands of accounts.  Graphic by Pixabay/Illustration by CNET Instagram’s website leaked user contact information, including phone numbers and email addresses, over a period of at least four months, a researcher says. The source code for some Instagram user profiles included the account holder’s contact information whenever it loaded in a web browser, says David Stier, a data scientist and business consultant, who notified Instagram shortly after he discovered the problem earlier this year. The contact information wasn’t displayed on the account holder’s profiles on the desktop version of the Instagram website, although it was used by the photo sharing site’s app for communication. It isn’t clear why the information was included in the website’s source code.The exposure appeared to include contact information for thousands of accounts, which belonged to private individuals — some of whom were minors — along with businesses and brands, Stier said. Including the information in the source code could let hackers scrape the data from the Instagram website, allowing them to assemble a virtual phone book that lists the contact details of thousands of Instagram users. Such a directory may have been created. On Monday, a report revealed that a marketing company in India, Chtrbox, had obtained contact information for millions of Instagram accounts and stored it on an unsecured database. It’s unclear how that database was created, but scraping data from Instagram is against the company’s terms of use. In a statement, Instagram spokeswoman Stephanie Otway said the data Stier found in the website’s source code was not private. “The contact information discovered in this case is not private contact information, but contact information a member of the Instagram community chose to share when converting their profile to a Business Profile,” Otway said. “During the setup process for Business Profiles we display this information, remind people that it will be accessible to others, and allow them to update or remove the information.”The statement didn’t address the risk that the data could be scraped from the website source code.Instagram also said the contact information in the Chtrbox database was not private. However, the company said Chtrbox did access some of the contact information from users’ profiles in violation of Instagram policies, leading Instagram to revoke Chtrbox’s access to its platform. In a statement, Chtrbox said it didn’t source the information through unethical means.Stier said he found evidence that the phone numbers and emails had been in the source code since at least October by looking at archived versions of Instagram profiles. He reported the problem to Instagram in February and the problem was fixed in March, he said.The exposure is an example of how easy it is to find sensitive information on the web. Programming errors can expose information that people with basic skills can find and abuse. For example, Google revealed Tuesday it’d been storing some business customers’ passwords in plain text, an insecure practice that sidesteps industry-standard protections. These slip-ups can help hackers amass valuable information on web users, putting them at risk of fraud and identity theft, experts say.The contact information is still available on the Instagram app, which displays users’ email addresses and phone numbers if they have opted into letting others contact them through the app. While that design isn’t ideal, it’s more secure than including contact information in the source code for a website, says Jason Hong, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon University who researches app security and privacy.”Scraping data from a website is relatively easy,” Hong said. “Scraping data from a running app is possible but rather hard.”You might think criminals couldn’t do much damage if all they had was your email address or phone number. But identity thieves still amass that data with the goal of combining it with other information gleaned from exposures and hacking attacks. For example, security expert Troy Hunt wrote in January that he’d discovered a cache of 773 million passwords composed of data taken from several different data breaches. Criminals piece together as much identifying information as possible to defeat fraud detection measures and successfully pose as someone else, said Charity Lacey, vice president of communications for the Identity Theft Resource Center.”Thieves are aggregating that data and creating more robust profiles in order to defeat the system,” Lacey said.

Houstons Economy Will See Moderate Growth Without An Oil Rebound

Posted on by

first_img 00:00 /00:59 Crude oil storage tanks along Beltway 8 in the Houston area. The city’s economy, though diverse, is still closely tied to oil and gas activity.A new economic forecast indicates Houston’s economy is growing, but not as fast as it usually does.Unless oil drilling ramps up, the city will continue to see only “moderate” growth. That’s according to Bill Gilmer, head of the Institute for Regional Forecasting at the University of Houston.In his latest forecast, Gilmer said that unless there is a big uptick in the oil sector, the city will likely only see about 40,000 new jobs over the next year.“Even without oil and gas, we have still sub-par, on Houston standards, growth and growth in employment,” he said, noting that 60,000 new jobs is an average year for the city.Still, Houston has fared the oil downturn pretty well. Gilmer’s forecast points to 97,000 jobs in other sectors like restaurants, retail and education since oil prices dropped in 2013. Cities like Pittsburgh or Detroit, Gilmer said, would be happy to see those numbers.“It looks like a pretty dismal outcome, but it’s hardly the end of the world,” he said.“Even if oil and gas don’t come back for a couple of years, we’re still seeing slow to moderate growth here in Houston.” To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen X Sharelast_img read more
