first_imgSEOUL, Korea, Republic Of — South Korean officials have travelled to North Korea by train to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for an aspirational project to modernize North Korean railways and roads and connect them with the South.Wednesday’s ceremony at the North Korean border town of Kaesong comes weeks after the Koreas conducted a joint survey on the northern railway sections they hope to someday link with the South.The ambitious project is among a variety of peace gestures agreed between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and liberal South Korean President Moon Jae-in as they push ahead with engagement amid a stalemate in larger nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang.But beyond on-site reviews and ceremonies, the Koreas cannot move the project much further along without the removal of U.S.-led sanctions against the North.During his three summits with Moon and a meeting with President Donald Trump in June, Kim signed vague statements pledging a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula without describing how and when it would occur. But followup nuclear talks between Washington and Pyongyang have stalled for months over the sequencing of the denuclearization that Washington wants and the removal of international sanctions desired by Pyongyang.South Korea’s Unification Ministry, which handles inter-Korean affairs, said the Seoul government plans to conduct further surveys on North Korean railways and roads before drawing up a detailed blueprint for the project.“Actual construction will be pursued in accordance with progress in the North’s denuclearization and the state of sanctions against the North,” the ministry said in a statement.Even if the North takes concrete steps toward denuclearization and gains sanctions relief, some experts say updating North Korean rail networks and trains, which creak slowly along the rails that were first built in the early 20th century, could take decades and massive investment.Seoul said it received an exemption to sanctions from the U.N. Security Council to proceed with Wednesday’s ceremony as it involved the usage of South Korean transport vehicles and goods. The Koreas’ joint survey of North Korean railways in November, which also required U.N. approval, marked the first time a South Korean train travelled on North Korean tracks.The Koreas in December 2007 began freight services between South Korea’s Munsan Station in Paju and the North’s Panmun Station to support operations at a now-shuttered joint factory park in Kaesong. The South used the trains to move construction materials north, while clothing and shoes made at the factory park were sent south. The line was cut in November 2008 due to political tensions over North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.The Kaesong factory park was shut down under the South’s previous conservative government in February 2016 following a North Korean nuclear test and long-range rocket launch.The Associated Presslast_img read more

CALGARY — Penn West Petroleum Ltd. stock fell to a new 52-week low Tuesday after the company announced four vice-presidents stepped down.Penn West shares dropped 3.5 per cent or 41 cents to $11.19 on the Toronto Stock Exchange after earlier falling as low as $11.05.The Calgary-based oil and gas producer said the senior executives whose departure was effective immediately are: Hilary Foulkes, executive vice-president and chief operating officer; Thane Jensen, senior vice-president and operations engineering; James Burns, vice-president of corporate planning; and Wendy Henkelman, vice-president, treasury.The company did not offer an explanation beyond that “improved execution is the key to realizing the value inherent in the company’s asset base.”“We will continuously make the necessary changes to deliver on our business plan,” it said.The company has been restructuring, partially to pay down debt.Penn West agreed in principle last month to sell $1.3-billion worth of its non-core properties, representing the equivalent of 12,000 barrels per day of production.The Calgary-based company said it would use funds from the sale to repay a portion of the money drawn on its credit facilities.“Recently announced agreements to sell assets have provided Penn West with operational and financial flexibility, allowing the company to maintain its dividend while applying capital to high rate of return projects in its portfolio,” it said in a release Tuesday.The company has been positioning itself to concentrate on light-oil plays, particularly along the Cardium formation in southern Alberta.During the most recent third-quarter, risk management activities helped pushed the oil and gas producer into the red. Last week, it reported a net loss of $67-million or 14 cents per share in the quarter.That compared with year-earlier net income of $138-million or 29 cents per share.The big swing was mainly due to unrealized losses or gains on the company’s risk-management contracts, partially offset by unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses.By other measures, Penn West had a more stable quarter.Revenue was $840-million, down from $861-million a year earlier. Funds flow was $344-million or 72 cents per share, down from $348-million or 74 cents per share. Production fell to the equivalent of 160,339 barrels of oil per day from 161,323 barrels per day. read more

Grammy nominated Professor Louie & The Crowmatix will be hitting the stage tonight at Valley Heights Secondary School.The band is visiting Valley Heights in between stops in neighbouring American cities.“We are able to have them perform on a non-traditional concert night, a Monday, at an early time so that we can all have an early night and be ready for school or work the next day,” said Sara Moody Veldhuis, head of music at Valley Heights.Professor Louie & The Crowmatix will be performing Monday afternoon for the students, and for the public at 7 p.m.Waterford singer-songwriter Amber Banks will open the evening.“I first came to know of Amber through her dad, Bobby Banks of local blues band favourites The Shoe Shine Boys”, said Moody Veldhuis.  “Amber has been posting YouTube videos for a while now, and I have been quietly following her.”Moody Veldhuis knew she had to find a place to showcase Amber after hearing her rendition of Queen’s “Love of My Life.”Some music students at Valley Heights will have the opportunity to perform alongside the Crowmatix in the evening.The proceeds from this event will be going towards the school’s music program and Aging Instrument Campaign.“The costs to run a music department, by nature, are quite high”, said Moody Veldhuis. “This is a chance for us to not only experience and enjoy some fantastic musicians, but to be able to contribute funds back into the program, just by attending.”Tickets can be purchased at Cashmere and Cobwebs, and C-Squared Home & Décor at both their Port Dover and Port Rowan locations.staylor@postmedia.com read more

first_imgThe 2011 Black Hat conference is officially over, and the results of this year’s Pwnie Awards are out. The Pwnie Awards recognize superior brilliance in the field of information security, as well the most spectacular failures within the field. Of course, award winners get to go home with a My Little Pony spray-painted in gold, though the winners that fall into the latter category may not want to keep the reminder.The winners are chosen by a committee of security industry stars from nominations submitted from the information security community. This year’s awards featured nine categories which included Best Server-Side Bug, Best Client-Side Bug, Best Privilege Escalation Bug, Most Innovative Research, Lifetime Achievement, Lamest Vendor Response, Best Song, Most Epic FAIL, and Epic Ownage.Of course, Sony was everyone’s top choice for Most Epic FAIL. How could the company not be after we watched the company fail time and time again this year? Sony was actually nominated five times. The nominations were for laying off a significant amount of network security employees just months before the major Sony PlayStation Network hack that shut down PSN for over two months so the company could rebuild it by scratch. There was also that whole 77 million Sony Online Entertainment users whose accounts were hacked. And remember when GeoHot published how to jailbreak the PS3? This was not a good year for Sony.But speaking of GeoHot, the Best Song award went to George Hotz, AKA GeoHot, for his epic rap about his legal battles with Sony who sued the hacker over his PS3 3.55 jailbreak that revealed the vulnerabilities of PS3’s security. You can watch the video below, but be warned, there’s some NSFW language in there.As for the Epic Ownage category, nominees included Anonymous, LulzSec, and WikiLeaks – all big names in the world of hacking this year. However, the winner came out as Stuxnet. The Pwnie website points out that Stuxnet’s rootkit destroyed centrifuges, its worm disrupted national nuclear programs, and has written 0day exploits and rootkits for equipment that no one has even heard of. Clearly, they totally 0wn.Congrats to all the winners — though some are actually losers.Read more at the Pwnie Awards website.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Costas Socratous, a former Labor Party staffer turned whistleblower, claims he was involved in branch-stacking in several key Melbourne ALP branches.Mr Socratous claims he was employed by former MP Theo Theophanous and parliamentary secretary Telmo Languiller to recruit members to the Albion and East Ardeer branches, to bolster the numbers of the ALP’s Right faction.Mr Socratous told The Age, “whilst working for Mr Languiller and Mr Theophanous it was my job to recruit members, renew their memberships every year and arrange payment of membership fees for the members we recruited.“I was regularly given large amounts of cash to pay these new memberships and also their renewals.”The cash, he said, came from the ALP’s Derrimut electorate account, private individuals and businesses, as well as the occasional injection from the accounts of members of parliament.”I was instructed to use these funds to pay for ALP membership renewals,” he said.The scheme, Mr Socratous claims, also benefited Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard and federal parliamentary secretary Bill Shorten.Mr Languiller and Mr Theophanous have denied the allegations.The State Opposition has called for the claims to be vigorously investigated by the Victorian Ombudsman as well as the Victorian and Australian Electoral Commissions.Opposition scrutiny of government spokesman David Davis told reporters, “these allegations are serious, they relate to corruption inside the ALP and real issues of corruption and integrity inside the Brumby government, they must be investigated.”Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard weighed into the debate this morning, backing Mr Languiller on ABC radio.“I understand that these claims are hotly contested by Telmo, who is one of the state members in the area, so obviously there are varying versions and a hot contest here,” she said.“What I would say of course is that it has been unlawful under the ALP rules for a long period of time for someone to pay ALP memberships on behalf of another person.”Ms Gillard also denied any suggestion that 80 per cent of memberships in her own electorate west of Melbourne were fake.Mr Socratous says he is prepared to give sworn evidence to the Victorian Electoral Commission.last_img read more

first_imgUnited States Federal regulators are investigating complaints that the front passenger seat belts in Hyundai’s Sonata cars broke loose during a crash-like situation and whether the South Korean carmaker should recall about 313,000 such midsize sedans.Also read: Hyundai to showcase Tucson, Sonata hybrid, N Vision 2025, Genesis G90 at Auto Expo The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Tuesday initiated the investigation following two complaints that the seat belts detached. However, the federal agency has received about a dozen such complaints from Hyundai owners about defective seat belts from the 2013 model cars. In one of the cases, an injury was also reported due to the seat belt issue.In every case, the owner claimed that the front passenger belt broke away from its anchoring point on the floor, the investigators wrote in a report on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “Another vehicle ran the red light and hit us at approximately 45 miles per hour,” an owner from Buena Park, California, said, recalling a crash in August, according to Forbes.”The passenger seat belt failed at the point where the lap restraint attaches to the car running board. The passenger that was wearing the failed seat belt during the accident was 110 pounds while the driver was 270 pounds. The driver’s seat belt functioned as intended.”If the preliminary probe suggests any concern, investigators would extend the probe for further technical analysis, following which a recall may be ordered.In September 2015, Hyundai recalled about 130,000 of its 2015 Sonata models due to an issue related to the front passenger seat belt. That year, the automaker recalled nearly a half-million midsize cars from the 2011 and 2012 models in the US to replace key engine parts because a manufacturing problem could cause them to fail.last_img read more

first_imgAn error message on the housing voucher waiting list online application on Oct. 22. (Screenshot by Guy Valerie Bosworth)A waiting list for Baltimore’s Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly Section 8) had 6,500 applicants within 30 minutes of the application going live online. By noon of the second day, the Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) had received 44,488 applications for the list. Prior to the application website going live on Oct. 22, HABC had said there would only be 25,000 spots opened on the waiting list, and that they would be filled by a random lottery if the authority received more than 25,000 applications.Applications to the waiting list can only be submitted online at http://www.jointhelist.org, and some residents have reported glitches while trying to apply on the website. Guy Valerie Bosworth, a senior at the University of Baltimore who is currently homeless, received an error message telling her to contact the housing authority the four times she attempted to apply on the first day.Another woman, who said she is 61 and also living in a shelter, e-mailed the AFRO on Oct. 23, claiming the website for the application was down when she tried to access it.Tania Baker, deputy director of communications for HABC, told the AFRO in an e-mail, “There was an issue yesterday (Oct. 22) that was quickly resolved. We have not heard of or experienced any issues today. We would encourage anyone using a PC to use the latest version of Internet Explorer.”The waiting list application will remain active through Oct. 30. It is the first time since 2003 that HABC has been accepting new applications for the list.ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more

first_imgRich people sometimes don’t realize how demeaning some of their requests can be. For instance, asking one of your favorite actors to marry you seems reasonable enough at the right price, right? How about asking them to do so in a silly costume? Of course you wouldn’t that, because you’re not an idiot and would realize that asking a stranger to dress up just for your pleasure is one step away from asking them to be your personal jester.Sometimes that’s not clear.Case in point, Sean Parker, Napster founder and Facebook billionaire, who famously wed singer Alexandra Lenas in 2013. Why famously? The 300-person wedding reportedly cost over $10 million and was Lord of the Rings-themed. Now we don’t mean they had a little cake with the fellowship on it and some Gollum balloons. They hired Ngila Dickson, the designer from the trilogy, to design the wardrobe for each of the 300 guests. It’s probably not that much of an expense for the billionaire, but it’s now been said that he wanted even more.via WikimediaReports are coming in that state Sir Ian McKellen was offered one million pounds to attend the wedding… dressed up as Gandalf…. to officiate. Seriously.Sir Ian being, y’know, a LORD, and generally not a douchebag, decided against it.“I was offered one-and- a-half million dollars to marry a very famous couple in California, which I would perhaps have considered doing but I had to go dressed as Gandalf,” said McKellen. “So I said, ‘I am sorry, Gandalf doesn’t do weddings.’”Now Sir Ian did conduct the wedding of his best bud Sir Patrick Stewart and his fiancee Sunny Ozell, but he didn’t have to wear a wig and robe for that role, although who knows what kind of pipe weed he might have smoked.McKellen says he never knew who made the offer, just that the person was very rich. Good for him for having standards, although one wonders if any other actors were approached for Parker’s wedding. There are certainly a few more Lord of the Rings actors you could see officiating at a wedding, although it would certainly change the whole tone if say, Sean Bean were to do it.last_img read more

first_img(Phys.org)—When an earthquake strikes, damage to buildings such as nuclear power stations can worsen the catastrophe. Researchers from France’s Institut Fresnel and the French division of Menard, a ground-improvement specialist company, have developed an invisibility cloak that could protect buildings during an earthquake by redirecting seismic waves around them. The researchers studied invisibility cloaks that make objects invisible to light waves. These cloaks are made of metamaterials smaller than the wavelength of light. They divert light waves around themselves, so light cannot reach anything hidden inside.While invisibility cloaks are standard fare in science fiction and fantasy, in reality, it is very difficult to create a metamaterial capable of manipulating light waves, which are extremely short and travel very long distances. Seismic waves, however, are longer than light waves and do not travel as far, so developing a seismic metamaterial could be easier.Last year, physicists at Mokpo National Maritime University in South Korea and the Australian National University in Canberra developed a model for a seismic invisibility cloak. The French team, however, was the first to build and test one. The team simulated an earthquake by using a vibraphone to create 50-hertz acoustic waves across a silty clay alluvial basin, up to 200 meters deep, near Grenoble, France. Acoustic sensors measured the waves’ movement.They then created a metamaterial by drilling three rows of holes into the basin. There were 10 holes in each row, spaced 1.73 meters apart. Each hole was about five meters deep and had an average diameter of 320 millimeters. When the French team re-transmitted the 50-hertz waves, energy levels near the source of the waves almost doubled, indicating that the metamaterial was reflecting the waves, which barely made it past the second row of holes. While a seismic metamaterial like this might eventually save lives during an earthquake, engineers and physicists still need to address some important issues. For example, it is impossible to predict the length of an earthquake’s seismic waves. This makes it difficult to determine how far to space the holes in the array. A way to get around this might be to arrange the holes to match the resonance of the building needing protection.There is also a danger that seismic waves reflected off a building could damage nearby buildings. A metamaterial that absorbs, rather than reflects, seismic waves might be a better choice. Copyright 2013 Phys.org All rights reserved.

first_imgFirefox Focus for Android preview by Martin Brinkmann on June 17, 2017 in Firefox – Last Update: June 21, 2017 – 20 commentsFirefox Focus, known as Firefox Klar in Germany, is a privacy-focused web browser by Mozilla that will be available for Android soon as well.Firefox Focus is different from other browsers; first, because it is clearly focused on privacy, and second, because it offers a stripped down experience that is focused on single tab browsing.Note: Firefox Focus has been released as a release candidate for Android. It is likely that there won’t be any major changes before release, but things may change nevertheless. The browser won’t replace Firefox for Android.Update: Firefox Focus has been released. Android users may download the web browser from Google Play directly. Mozilla did remove the controversial Adjust component from the browser, and has disabled the automatic transfer of telemetry data on top of that.Firefox FocusFirefox Focus, as the name suggests already, is designed as a tab-less browser. This means that you can have a single site open in the mobile browser at any time.You will also notice that standard browser features such as bookmarks, lots of preferences, or data synchronization, are also not supported.What Firefox Focus offers however is privacy. Private Browsing is activated, and so is Firefox’s Tracking Protection. This gets rid of any kind of tracking that uses cookies, as cookies are only stored per-session but deleted afterwards (if they are set in the first place and not blocked by Tracking Protection).The mobile browser ships with other privacy features. It lists the number of trackers that its protective features blocked directly in the interface for instance. This works similarly to other content blockers which display the information in web browsers.Users may disable the protection on a site. This is useful if a site does not load properly. There is however no option to do this individually; it is all or nothing.The only other options listed in the main menu are to open the page in Firefox, to use the open with functionality to open it using another application, and to share the page.The browser UI concentrates on the essentials: the site that is loaded. You will notice that there is barely any UI when a page is loaded. The main menu bar is hidden automatically , and the only UI element left is Android’s notification area at the top. You can display it at any time by scrolling up though.Firefox Focus’s interface lacks common features such as back and forward buttons.PreferencesThe preferences focus on privacy. You will notice that anonymous usage data sharing is enabled by default which you may want to disable considering that you are probably using the browser for privacy purposes.Several privacy options are not enabled, likely for compatibility reasons. You may enable the blocking of other content trackers, and Web fonts. The first may break some web pages, the second may result in missing icons or images.Firefox Focus ships in stealth mode by default. This blocks screenshot capturing, and that sites that you have visited in Firefox Focus appear in the Recent Apps list.The only other options are to change the default search engine — which varies depending on your region — and to change the interface language. You are limited to a fixed selection of search engines though when it comes to setting the default search engine. Google, Yahoo Amazon, DuckDuckGo, Twitter and Wikipedia are supported when you run the US English version for instance.VerdictFirefox Focus’s main focus is privacy and minimalism. A focus on privacy is great in this time and age, but you may get the same result if you configure Firefox for Android properly for instance. Firefox Focus offers an out-of-box experience though, and that is without doubt its greatest strength.I personally think that the developers have done away with too many features — setting any search engine as the default, saving passwords, back and forward buttons, remembering logins — of which I call many essential to the user experience.

Earlier this year it announced plans to host the first-ever Pride of the Americas Festival in 2020. The 10-day event will draw attention to issues LGBT+ individuals face in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is expected to attract more than 350,000 attendees and will include a parade, a beach party, arts festival, social events and a human rights conference focused on LGBT+ rights.Most recently, Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County opened the area’s first LGBT+ Visitor Center in Wilton Manors, Broward County’s gay-centric district with the destination’s largest concentration of gay residents and businesses. It is located at 2300 NE Seventh Ave in Wilton Manors.Greater Fort Lauderdale is also home to one of the largest Pride Centers in the country, the world’s first AIDS museum, the global headquarters of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association, and the Stonewall Museum, one of the only permanent spaces in the U.S. devoted to exhibitions relating to LGBT+ history and culture.The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau has been welcoming LGBT+ travelers since 1996, when it became the first Convention & Visitors Bureau with a dedicated LGBT+ marketing department. Since then, Greater Fort Lauderdale has continued to break down barriers and facilitate visibility for the LGBT+ community at large, acting as a pioneer in the hospitality industry and ensuring that the destination is inclusive and welcoming with a diverse, safe and open community for all travelers. Greater Fort Lauderdale welcomes an estimated 1.5 million LGBT+ visitors who spend $1.5 billion annually.
