More Children with Disabilities to Receive Early Stimulation

first_img More children with disabilities will benefit from early intervention services, with the opening of the expanded Stimulation Plus Early Childhood Development Centre (Stim-Plus). It comprises seven classrooms, bathrooms, administrative offices, sickbay, physiotherapy rooms, a caretaker’s cottage, and a specialised play area. More children with disabilities will benefit from early intervention services, with the opening of the expanded Stimulation Plus Early Childhood Development Centre (Stim-Plus).The facility, located in Rockfort, Kingston, was upgraded through $70 million in funding from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).It comprises seven classrooms, bathrooms, administrative offices, sickbay, physiotherapy rooms, a caretaker’s cottage, and a specialised play area.With the improvement, the centre, which previously accommodated 126 children, is now able to increase enrolment by at least 40 per cent, adding another 80 children.Minister of State in the Social Security Ministry, Hon. Zavia Mayne, who spoke to JIS News that the opening ceremony in May, noted that the upgraded building will advance the growth and success of the disability agenda in Jamaica.He hailed the partnership with the IDB, while affirming the Ministry’s commitment, through the Early Stimulation Programme (ESP), to improve the quality of life of children with disabilities.“It is a crucial responsibility of the Ministry and a duty that we take very seriously,” he said.Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, pointed out that the expansion project is in keeping with the Government’s commitment “to ensure that every child is targeted from birth”.“We want to make sure that everybody gets an opportunity for full education and proper development,” he noted.For her part, Director at the ESP, Antonica Gunter-Gayle, said that the opening of the upgraded centre “is a bright day in the lives of our children with disabilities”.She noted that the additional classrooms, along with the services provided, will increase enrolment and enhance the quality of the interventions provided, better enabling the children to realise their full potential.“Jamaica is on the right path where caring for special needs children is concerned,” she said, adding that the staff is committed to fostering the cognitive, social and emotional development of the children.“When they leave here, they must not leave here like they came. We want to make a difference in the lives of our children with disabilities,” she said.For parent Nicola Bright, the centre has been invaluable in the development of her nine-year-old son.She hailed the “very dedicated support” from the staff, noting that “it is just a family affair”.“The care for the children is just tremendous,” she added.Miss Bright is encouraging more parents with special needs children to seek help for them, rather than keeping them at home.“We are here with children (who have) special needs just like yours. It is okay for you to reach out for help,” she pointed out.In her remarks, Chief of Operations at the IDB, Adriana La Valley, said the completion of the project is a “tremendous achievement” for Jamaica and a demonstration that the country is focused on “developing capabilities and expanding possibilities”.“It is a quality-care educational facility dedicated to providing needed interventions,” she noted.The IDB official lauded the work of the ESP. “We are pleased to see the wide range of services offered, including its home-based visits,” she said.Meanwhile, Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) Managing Director, Omar Sweeney, is encouraging the Rockfort community to “cherish and treasure this facility”.JSIF provided project management during the construction phase of the centre.Mr. Sweeney said the agency’s participation in the undertaking is a source of pride, as the facility is dedicated to a vulnerable segment of the society, which is in keeping with the organisation’s mandate.“The most important thing we can do in today’s Jamaica is set our youth on the right path; there is no cause that is more important,” Mr. Sweeney contended.The ESP caters to children from birth to six years with challenges such as cerebral palsy, sensory impairment, autism, Down’s syndrome, developmental delay, psychosocial deprivation and co-morbid behavioural problems such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).The programme’s services fall into two main categories – centre-based and community-based, with the former comprising clinical assessment, re-evaluation, reviews, physical therapy, speech therapy, parent orientation and counselling, and parent/staff training workshops.The community-based aspect entails home visits by specially trained early-childhood workers called child development officers. They visit homes, basic schools, day-care centres, private as well as government institutions, to train parents and caregivers to stimulate the child in the various areas of development, such as language, cognitive, self-help, motor and socialisation.Since its inception in 1975, the ESP has provided early intervention and assessment for thousands of children across the island. Minister of State in the Social Security Ministry, Hon. Zavia Mayne, who spoke to JIS News that the opening ceremony in May, noted that the upgraded building will advance the growth and success of the disability agenda in Jamaica.

Zuma confirms initiating idea of alternative media with Guptas

first_imgJohannesburg: South Africa’s former president Jacob Zuma, facing allegations of corruption, has told an inquiry that he initiated the idea of having an “alternative media” in the country that led to the controversial Indian-origin Gupta family establishing their media empire. Zuma, who was forced to resign as president in February 2018, appeared for the first time on Monday at the inquiry, which is investigating allegations that he oversaw a web of corruption during his term in office. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi JinpingThe allegations against 77-year-old Zuma focus on his relationship with the Gupta family, which was accused of influencing Cabinet appointments and winning lucrative state tenders through corruption. “I have been vilified, alleged to be the king of corrupt people,” Zuma told the inquiry led by Judge Ray Zondo. Zuma told the judge that he had conceived the idea of having an “alternative media” in South Africa because “the media in this country is very biased; at all material times, just critical”. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in XinjiangThe Zondo Commission is inquiring into allegations of “state capture” during Zuma’s rule. Zuma said the African National Congress (ANC) had been trying to establish some media as an “alternative” voice, but despite trying by partnering with other people, this never worked. He had then suggested that a newspaper be established, which the ANC had agreed to. This led to him approaching the Guptas with the idea. “They seemed to be warm to the idea” Zuma said, adding that he and ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe met the Guptas to further discuss the idea. “When (the Guptas) were ready with the idea, they said to me: ‘Give us a name; we don’t know what to call this newspaper’.” He gave them some names of newspapers during the freedom struggle, from which they selected ‘The New Age’. “When this paper was operating and really being appreciated in this country to bring in an alternative voice, I wondered whether I could push them further,” he said. “I suggested the paper to them; I suggested the [TV] channel [ANN7]. The Guptas partnered with a media house in India to establish the ANN7 channel, which was closed down after allegations of their involvement in “state capture” emerged. The New Age was earlier first sold to an individual with controversial vendor financing from the Guptas, but also shut down after being economically unviable. “Somebody can then say we were abusing this friendship. It was never the other way round,” Zuma said. “It’s me who put them into trouble, because I said your paper is so successful and so your TV thing can be successful. “They agreed and said it’s a good idea and they moved on it. There was no law broken there. There was no wrong thing done,” he said. “ANN7 brought a fresh air in the country in terms of reporting; in terms of putting across progressive ideas,” the former president said. “It was never a back door thing or there’s corruption about it. Never.” Zuma said he found the Gupta family “very friendly”. “I never did anything with them unlawfully. They just remained friends, as they were friends to everybody else,” Zuma said, adding that they had also been friends of former presidents Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki. He objected to allegations that he had allowed the state to be “captured” by the family, and had auctioned the country, the BBC reported. “Did I auction Table Mountain? Did I auction Johannesburg?” he said. Zuma resigned as president in February last year after huge outcries over his alleged involvement in corrupt and illegal activities that left a number of government departments bankrupt.last_img read more

WilsonRaybould set to speak my truth in Ottawa

first_imgJustin BrakeAPTN NewsWhen she speaks today, Jody Wilson-Raybould could answer some big questions on the minds of First Nation leaders.Privy Council Office (PCO) Clerk Michael Wernick’s Feb. 21 testimony to the House of Commons’ justice committee revealed there was tension between the former justice minister and attorney general and some of her cabinet colleagues, including Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett, related to the proposed Indigenous rights framework.When Wilson-Raybould testifies before that same committee on Wednesday, it’s unclear whether she will address the framework differences, or if she will strictly address allegations she was pressed to intervene in the criminal prosecution of Montreal engineering and construction giant SNC-Lavalin.But as the controversy around the Prime Minister’s Office’s alleged misconduct continues to unfold, the future of Indigenous peoples’ rights, jurisdiction and title hang in the balance.In February 2018 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the launch of an engagement process on his government’s Recognition and Implementation of Rights Framework, a suite of legislative and policy reform promised to “include new ways to recognize and implement Indigenous Rights,” Trudeau said in his Valentine’s Day speech in the House of Commons.Throughout most of 2018, Ottawa, led by Bennett, met with Indigenous leaders and select community members to gather feedback on what Nations and groups wanted to see in the framework.But by September, First Nation leaders were largely unsettled by the process, and by the contents of an overview document released by the government on Sept. 10, which purported to summarize the views of First Nations throughout the engagement process.On Sept. 11, at an Assembly of First Nations (AFN) special forum on the framework in Gatineau, Que., Bennett tried to quell fears the government was proceeding disingenuously with the work and perhaps with a goal of maintaining the status quo of rights denial with respect to Indigenous peoples in Canada.An AFN summary report of the event calls the government’s engagement process a “divide and conquer strategy” and accuses the feds of not being transparent about what it was hearing from First Nations.The report said the engagement sessions “fell short of full, fair and meaningful participation and were rushed.”On Sept. 13, the day after the AFN forum concluded, Wilson-Raybould gave a lecture at the University of Saskatchewan called “Recognition, Reconciliation and Indigenous People’s Disproportionate Interactions with the Criminal Justice System”.During her presentation she noted that, “[t]oo often we see the tendency — especially in politics — to use important words that have real meaning and importance, carelessly.“We see ‘recognition’ applied to ideas that actually mean ‘denial’. We see ‘self-government’ used to refer to ideas or processes that actually maintain control over others. We see ‘self-determination’ applied to actions that actually interfere with the work of Nations rebuilding their governments and communities. We see ‘inherent’ in the same breath as the contradictory idea that rights are contingent on the courts or agreements,” she continued.“When we see this being done it does not advance reconciliation. It actually undermines it. It causes confusion, chaos, and division.”According to Wernick’s testimony last week, Trudeau met with Wilson-Raybould, a driving force behind the framework, on Sept. 17, just days after the AFN forum and Wilson-Raybould’s Saskatoon speech.Wernick said he too attended the meeting, which was convened to discuss “very serious policy differences” between Wilson-Raybould, Bennett and other ministers over the framework.Wernick testified that “there were different views on a very significant thing,” and that Trudeau was growing “impatient” with the slow pace of work on the framework.“He was concerned we were losing momentum and traction heading into the last year of the mandate on the rights framework,” Wernick said, adding that he took over the framework file because Trudeau was consumed with the NAFTA negotiations with the United States.He said the issue was referred to the cabinet sub-committee on reconciliation, and then to cabinet.“There was a decision not to proceed with the rights and recognition framework.”In the two-plus months following that meeting, Wilson-Raybould delivered other speeches indicating she was unhappy with the government’s work on the framework.“The path of justice and equality is not advanced or achieved through half-measures, good intentions, or lofty rhetoric,” she said on Sept. 27 in Comox, B.C. during a speech on the criminal justice system and renewing Canada’s relationship with Indigenous Peoples.On Nov. 29, during a speech on Indigenous rights to First Nation and provincial leaders in Vancouver, she quoted late Squamish Chief Joe Mathias, who told the feds during constitutional talks in the early 1980s to “behold the turtle… who moves forward when he sticks his neck out.“I say, let us stick our necks out. I am,” she said.In a move that surprised many, on Jan. 14 Wilson-Raybould was removed as justice minister and attorney general and reappointed to lead the veterans affairs portfolio.She released a statement that day saying that “while our government has taken some very important steps, and hard work is being done” to recognize Indigenous rights and title, “the necessary shifts have not yet been fully achieved.”Kory Wilson, Wilson-Raybould’s sister, told APTN News this week that her sister called her hours before the cabinet shuffle announcement to give her family a head’s up.“Her priority was our mom, and making sure our mom was OK with it,” Wilson recalled. “Because she’s a lot more sensitive to what she hears on TV.“So [Wilson-Raybould] said, OK, you have to talk to mom and…tell her it’s going to be OK.“It is what it is, and this is politics.”Days after the Globe and Mail broke the story of alleged political interference on the PMO’s part toward the then-justice minister and attorney general, Wilson-Raybould resigned from cabinet.In her resignation letter she acknowledged that Canadians want to hear her side of the story, and that she had hired former Supreme Court Justice Thomas Albert Cromwell to advise her.She has said very little, publicly, since then, but has addressed her former cabinet colleagues and rose on a point of order in the House of Commons last week to say she was “anxious” to “speak my truth”.In a recent interview with APTN about the recent events, Grand Chief Edward John of the First Nations Summit in B.C. said he was concerned about the loss of Wilson-Raybould as a cabinet minister, and noted that the rights framework “is going nowhere fast.”He called the loss of Wilson-Raybould in cabinet “really disturbing,” explaining she had intimate knowledge of the challenges First Nations face when negotiating rights and title with Canada.Grand Chief Ed John of the First Nations Summit in B.C. says not having Wilson-Raybould in cabinet is a “tremendous loss to the country…” APTN Photo.“She’s a remarkable woman. She’s very well educated and understands these issues at a depth that very few people in the country, and certainly at the cabinet table, would have. So that in itself is a tremendous loss to the country, but a tremendous loss to us as well.”Wilson, who, like her sister is also a lawyer, said Wilson-Raybould’s removal as justice minister and attorney general, coupled with the removal of Jane Philpott from the Indigenous services portfolio, indicates “there has to be something we don’t know.“Why on Earth would you remove her….because there’s no one person in any ranking of government, MPs or the public service that knows more about this issue [of Indigenous rights] than she does, or of the paths forward than she does.”Asked on Tuesday what Bennett and Wilson-Raybould disagreed on with the rights framework, a spokesperson for Bennett’s office told APTN the minister had no comment.Wilson said her sister is dutiful to her role as a federal politician and doesn’t share internal information of this sort with others, including family.Though Wilson doesn’t know what her sister will say during her testimony on Wednesday, she said “[y]ou know for a fact what she’s going to tell is the truth, and likely everything she will say is well-documented.”Whether or not Wilson-Raybould will influence how the Indigenous rights framework unfolds, if the Liberals maintain power after the fall election, Wilson said her little sister has already made her mark for Indigenous people in Canada.“I think the fact that she was put as justice minister, the highest-ranking Indigenous person in cabinet, ever, even despite what has happened—there are a tremendous number of Indigenous youth out there that realize they can do this too.“Maybe this is what she has to go through to ensure that the doorway is open now for other Indigenous people to aspire…to be the change makers for Indigenous people wherever they are.” files from Tina Houselast_img read more

Tens of thousands of Afghan refugees go back home with UN support

The pace of returns has been on the rise in recent weeks and now averages 806 individuals per day, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in a statement on World Refugee Day, which was marked on Sunday, adding that returns generally peak between May and August.Over the past few months, returning refugees have cited economic factors and the difficult security situation in Pakistan, as well as local improvements in security and employment opportunities in some provinces in Afghanistan as key reasons for deciding to return, the agency said.“Despite security constraints and challenging socio-economic conditions in Afghanistan, the voluntary repatriation of 70,000 Afghans demonstrates that many refugees are confident that there are opportunities available to return sustainably to their homeland,” said Mengeshe Kebede, UNHCR’s representative in Pakistan.Speaking in Kabul, Afghanistan’s Acting Minister for Refugees and Repatriation, Abdul Rahim, stressed that 2.7 million refugees remained in Iran and Pakistan despite the returns.“Continuing donor support for Afghanistan’s reconstruction and development programmes is needed to attract more refugees home in future,” Mr. Rahim.The majority of the 2.7 million registered Afghans in Pakistan and Iran have lived in exile for over two and a half decades. More than half that number was born abroad and as a result they face more complex reintegration challenges than their compatriots who left Afghanistan more recently, according to UNHCR.The agency estimates that more than 5 million Afghans, or 20 per cent of the country’s 25 million people, have gone back home since 2002.“There are issues related to land, property, housing, and employment that emerge daily. But the determination of the returnees to overcome these obstacles is remarkable,” said Ewen Macleod, UNHCR’s Representative in Afghanistan.Each Afghan returning with UNHCR assistance receives a cash grant averaging about $100, depending on the distance to their area of origin.Now in its ninth year, UNHCR’s voluntary return programme to Afghanistan is the largest return operation around the world. Since it began in 2002, more than 3.6 million Afghans have returned home from Pakistan and 865,000 from Iran with UNHCR’s help. 21 June 2010An estimated 70,000 Afghan refugees have returned to their homeland so far this year, an indication that an increasing number of those who fled have confidence that they can live in the country despite the prevailing security and socio-economic challenges, according to the United Nations refugee agency. read more

Terrapinns World Mining Investment Congress 2009 – day one

first_imgThe third World Mining Investment Congress began on Tuesday at Park Plaza in London with a host of international speakers aiming to explain the reasons behind the financial environment we find ourselves in and also, cautiously, predict what might follow in the near future. IM was in attendance on day one and was pleased to hear the majority of speakers talking about the ‘worst being over’ and that the majority of commodities had ‘bottomed out’. In between these interesting presentations – from amongst others, Frank Holmes, CEO and CIO, US Global Investors; Bart Melek, Global Commodity Strategist fro BMO Capital Markets; and Patricia Mohr, Vice President, Economics and Commodity Market Specialist, Scotiabank Group – talk of strategic investments was rife. Many investors were interested in talking gold; however there was also a strong focus on copper – perhaps on the back of the price breaking through the $5,000/t – oil and uranium.The major mining companies were represented by Rio Tinto. Chief Executive, Copper and Diamonds, Bret Clayton, like most of us, was unsure about the red metal’s prospects over the long term, however he was pleased with the current situation. On both copper and diamonds though he said that the company would not be making great leaps without concrete evidence of improvement; something that he did not currently see. Talking of the company’s focus in the short-term he said that it will make the most of its current resources, with exploration being on the back burner.   In the afternoon, Diezani Alison-Madueke, Minister of Mines and Steel Development in Nigeria outlined the new regulations and systems that the country has put in place in order to attract private investment in its minerals sector. Using comprehensive models from other established and successful mining countries, she explained that the country’s mineral policy has initially been met positively. Coined as “virgin territory” by the Minister, she said that the country had already received much interest from both junior and major mining companies and was hoping to build on this interest in the future.There was also a presentation from Todd Houlahan, Director of Global Mining for Innov-X Systems. Houlahan made a compelling case for the use of portable assaying equipment, showing case studies from two companies that had used the company’s portable XRF (X ray Fluorescence) analysers (featured in IM February 2009).On the whole the mood was buoyant and IM left with a sense that investment in mining projects will start to pick up towards the end of this year and that investors are starting to, once again, look at prospective mining projects with intent.last_img read more

Next from Samsung Metal Galaxy F5 and a new curved display

first_imgSamsung’s success over the last couple of years has afforded them the ability to take risks without worrying about it. As a result it looks like there’s some exciting new stuff heading our way at some undisclosed point in the future, maybe. Samsung’s mostly metal Galaxy F5 and the long-awaited curved display smartphones seem to be real things that we might see on shelves one day.It was teased shortly after the release of the HTC One that Samsung was considering a phone with a metal exterior. The notoriously plastic casing of Samsung phones often gives the impression that the phone is cheap, despite Samsung’s many attempts to correct this mentality with features and durability tests. At the end of the day, there’s a chunk of users out there that just plain prefer metal to plastic. To address these users Samsung appears to be working on the Galaxy F5, which will give this segment of the market exactly what they want from Samsung.If you follow Samsung tech at all, you’ve seen one of the any times the company has teased their flexible displays. They show up at tech shows in plastic casing, the display warped into funny shapes to show how the technology could work. We’ve seen this technology show up in their massive televisions, but there’s been no consumer release for the smaller flexible displays. At one point it was rumored that the Galaxy Gear watch would have a flexible display, but that turned out to be untrue. Now it seems a Samsung’s DJ Lee is claiming that there will be a phone with a curved display announced in October for their home country.It’s unclear if either of these devices would make it to the rest of the world as consumer products, but for now they appear to be concepts that the company is planning to test to see how successful they can be in limited markets. Like their Galaxy Beam projector phone, these are likely niche devices that will see single carrier releases in the states if they make it here at all.last_img read more

It is absolutely crazy Tyrrell cant understand Loughnane criticism of Cody

first_img By Fintan O’Toole Wednesday 7 Dec 2016, 8:00 AM ‘It is absolutely crazy’ – Tyrrell can’t understand Loughnane criticism of Cody The ex-Clare boss has argued the Kilkenny manager should walk away. Short URL Ger Loughnane feels Brian Cody should have walked away Source: INPHOGER LOUGHNANE SPARKED quite a storm last week when he suggested that Brian Cody should have stepped down in Kilkenny in the wake of their All-Ireland final loss to Tipperary.The Clare All-Ireland winning boss pointed to legendary GAA figures Mick O’Dwyer and Sean Boylan as examples of managers that he felt stayed too long at the helm.But one of the players who thrived under Cody’s guidance has branded Loughnane’s views as ‘absolutely crazy’.Jackie Tyrrell claimed nine All-Ireland senior hurling medals under Cody’s watch and has questioned whether Loughnane is trying to stay relevant, when speaking at yesterday’s Littlewoods Ireland GAA sponsorship announcement. Share179 Tweet Email “Ah, sure Ger is Ger. I’d say maybe if Ger spent more time on his hurling and concentrating on hurling rather than worrying about Brian Cody and Kilkenny and our physicality, he might have a few more All Ireland medals in his back pocket as a player, well actually he might have one.“It is a time of the year that is quiet on the GAA scene. Is Ger trying to make himself a bit relevant? I don’t know.“It is absolutely crazy. I don’t know what his motivation is behind it, but in a logical world it doesn’t make any sense at all.“Then to compare him to Sean Boylan and Alex Ferguson it is madness really. I have no real logic to it and I can’t see any background to why he would say that.”It’s not the first time that Loughnane has stirred emotions on Noreside.

As TI Committee Unveils WRRDA ASA Begins Press for Passage

first_imgHouse Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) released the Water Resources Reform & Development Act (WRRDA) Wednesday afternoon at a press and stakeholder briefing attended by ASA Washington staff.Chairman Shuster’s bill has the support of T&I committee Ranking Member Nick Rahall (D-W.V.) and Water Resources Subcommittee Chairman Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio) and Ranking Member Timothy Bishop (D-N.Y.).  The committee has scheduled a mark-up of the bill for Thursday, September 19.  The Senate passed its Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) in May of this year by a vote of 83-14.“ASA strongly supports enactment of waterways legislation that makes significant progress in repairing and revitalizing our aging waterways infrastructure,” said ASA President Danny Murphy. “U.S. soybean farmers rely on a healthy waterways infrastructure to move their soybeans to market. The U.S. exports more than half of the soybeans grown in this country and having reliable and efficient waterways and ports is essential to maintaining our competitiveness in global markets. We are encouraged by many parts of the WRRDA bill and will work to see it passed.”The draft developed by Chairman Shuster includes provisions supported by ASA to streamline environmental reviews; establish hard deadlines and cost caps on project studies; allow non-federal interests to contribute funds to expedite project components; annually increase the amount of funding that is provided from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund (HMTF) for port maintenance and dredging; and free up money and increase the capacity of the Inland Waterways Trust Fund (IWTF) by reducing the federal cost share of the Olmsted Lock and Dam project to 25% and requiring the Corps to study and report on bonding, user fees, and other potential funding sources.The House Republican Leadership indicated its support the bill, issuing a memo to members last week touting that the proposal “cuts federal red tape and bureaucracy, streamlines the project delivery process, improves competitiveness, strengthens water resources infrastructure, and promotes fiscal responsibility.”To assist in promoting the bill, the House T&I Committee prepared a brief “whiteboard” video explaining the need for the bill and how it impacts every American.

Rainbow crosswalk painted outside Pulse Nightclub in honor of shooting victims

first_imgORLANDO, FLA. (WSVN) – A new ‘rainbow’ crosswalk in Orlando is dedicated to the victims of the Pulse Nightclub massacre.DOT crews finished the crosswalk early Wednesday, right outside of Pulse, where 49 people were killed in June 2016.Thousands of people signed a petition asking the city of Orlando to approve the memorial.It’s unclear what will happen to the building itself. Pulse’s owner has been collecting suggestions online.“I want what the community wants. I want what the victims’ families want, what the survivors want,” Barbara Poma said.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Senators propose bill requiring warrants to search devices at the border

first_imgA Customs and Border Protection agent watching surveillance footage. James Martin/CNET If you’re taking a trip in to or out of the US, border agents currently have free rein to search through your digital devices. Unlike police, agents don’t need a warrant to look through your phones, laptops and other electronics. Two US senators are hoping to change that with a bipartisan bill. Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon, and Sen. Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, on Wednesday introduced the Protecting Data at the Border Act, which would require agents to obtain a warrant before they can search Americans’ devices at the border. The number of electronic searches at the border has spiked in the last four years. In 2018, the Department of Homeland Security conducted more than 33,000 searches on devices, compared with 4,764 searches in 2015. Customs and Border Protection declined to comment.”The border is quickly becoming a rights-free zone for Americans who travel. The government shouldn’t be able to review your whole digital life simply because you went on vacation, or had to travel for work,” Wyden said in a statement. The bill is also being introduced in the House of Representatives by a group of Democrats. Wyden and Paul introduced the same bill in 2017. Since then, warrantless device searches at the border increased by 10 percent.Law enforcement agencies have been taking advantage of the warrantless searches at the border, using the information discovered in unrelated court cases, the American Civil Liberties Union discovered through its related lawsuit against the DHS. Until a court makes a decision, the agency is still allowed to conduct these searches without a warrant. “Respecting civil liberties and our Constitution actually strengthens our national security, and Americans should not be forced to surrender their rights or privacy at the border,” Paul said. “Our bill will put an end to these intrusive government searches and uphold the fundamental protections of the Fourth Amendment.”  Border wall dividing homes and habitat Politics Security 1 Now playing: Watch this: 2:09 Share your voice Comment Tagslast_img read more

No religious persecution in Bangladesh Hasina tells Gulf News

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina during her interaction with Gulf News in Abu Dhabi. – Photo courtesy: Gulf NewsPrime minister Sheikh Hasina has wondered why India’s parliament passed ‘Indian Citizenship Amendment Bill’ meant to give citizenship to minorities that faced “religious persecution” in neighbouring countries, including Bangladesh.The Bangladesh premier expressed her views in an interview with Gulf News in the UAE capital on Tuesday.“Why [us] this bill…I don’t understand,” she was quoted to have said. “Is it for election purpose?” Sheikh Hasina reportedly asked with a smile.Gulf News quoted her as saying that she never felt that the bill meant to blame Bangladesh for religious persecution of minorities in the country.“I don’t think so. There is no such [religious persecution] in Bangladesh. Some incidents have happened. But we took immediate action,” the premier was quoted to have said.She said religious extremism and terrorism are a global problem. “It is not in Bangladesh alone.”Sheikh Hasina reportedly said her understanding was that people in India are also not happy with the bill. “I think they [India] should not do anything that create tension.”Referring to her actions against Indian insurgents, who tried to operate from Bangladesh, she said, “They should consider all these factors as a neighbouring country.”last_img read more

Super Slim PS3 images leak

first_imgEarlier this month a new PS3 console appeared at the FCC. It carried the model number CECH-4001x, where as the current model is CECH-3000 suggesting a brand new machine was imminent. The redesigned console also looked to be much smaller than the current PS3 Slim.Today, images of what is being referred to as the PS3 Super Slim have appeared. The machine’s final model numbers are CECH-4011A/B/C, and even though it retains the overall look of a PS3 it is clearly much smaller.Sony has copied a few design choices it used when redesigning the PS2. Notably, the disc drive is now accessed via a lid that opens rather than using a disc tray that pulls the disc in for you. Clearly such a design takes up less space and must be cheaper to manufacture due to fewer parts being required.It looks as though Sony is planning three storage options for the 4011. A 160GB, 320GB, and new 500GB hard drive will be offered for anyone who wants to store a serious amount of game or movie data on their machine. The Sony document below lists 16GB instead of 160GB, but that seems unlikely as Sony has never offered such low storage capacity before and has offered 160GB models. It is probably a typo, but then again it could be Sony’s attempt at matching Microsoft with a very cheap entry level machine.I would guess that Sony will keep the current pricing when the new machine is released, but the new design will likely use significantly less power than the 3000 hardware. The PS3 has always been a quiet machine, but the new flip open lid may mean there’s a little more disc noise.As for when we can expect to see this new model released, Sony will definitely want to have it on store shelves for the holidays. The next big gaming event is Gamescon next month in Cologne, so it may be launched or at least previewed there.More at Tecnoblog (translated), via MCVlast_img read more

Carry a PC in Your Pocket

first_imgFebruary 21, 2008 Listen Now Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. A notebook PC is a handy thing to have, but lugging one around everywhere you go can be downright inconvenient. Fortunately, there’s a solution that fits right in your pocket: The ubiquitous USB flash drive, often called a keychain or thumb drive.With the right device and software, you can plug your flash drive into a computer at an Internet cafe, hotel business center, or elsewhere, and have all the tools and files you need to do your work–complete with your own personal launch menu. Sure, you can use online applications like Google Docs or Zoho Office (see Life Without Desktop Software for more on these), but a flash drive lets you carry a much wider variety of the applications, utilities, and other fun doodads you’ve come to depend on.Here’s everything you need, from hardware to software and beyond, to get going in the world of pocket computing.Harness the Right HardwareTo get the most out of portable computing, you need a good flash drive. Here are some things to consider:Take a drive on the reading edge. The faster your flash drive, the more smoothly programs will run. When shopping for a drive, look at the specs and try to find one with a read rate of 15 mbps (megabits per second; in megabytes, 1.9 MBps) or faster. If you already have a flash drive, you can test its speed with a free utility like HDTach for Windows.Look for high-speed USB. A USB 2.0 flash drive will perform much better than USB 1.x. Make sure the drive you buy specifies USB 2.0 or “high-speed USB.”U3 or not U3? Some flash drives (notably those from SanDisk) are labeled “U3,” meaning they use a proprietary format to create applications for USB drives. Such drives usually come with a built-in pop-up program launcher called LaunchPad and a few programs, or they at least link to a Web page for downloading and installing free and for-pay U3 applications. SanDisk claims that only U3-compatible programs will run on such a drive, but I had no problem running U3 and non-U3 programs side by side on the same memory stick. (However, don’t expect your non-U3 apps to show up on the U3 launch menu.)With so many portable applications available from a variety of free sources these days, you don’t necessarily have to get a U3-equipped drive. If you do have one, you can either take advantage of the LaunchPad feature and its various apps, or you can find utilities for removing U3 LaunchPad software from SanDisk drives and from non-SanDisk drives. And if you change your mind about such removal, SanDisk has a free tool for getting it back.Snag the Best SoftwareOnce you’ve got the flash drive of your choice, it’s time to stock up with the tools you’ll need when you’re away from your regular system. The term “portable software” usually refers to an application that can run from a single folder (usually on a removable device) without adding any files or Registry entries to the host system. Although this leaves out the traditional behemoths like Microsoft Office or Adobe’s Creative Suite, you can still find a lot of handy software that meets the portable requirement.Your suite is waiting. If you want an all-in-one package of basics–spreadsheet, word processor, graphics–you can have your pick of portable suites, all completely free (in some cases, donations are accepted).An excellent collection is Portable Apps, which comes in two sizes, Standard (260MB installed) and Lite (105MB installed). Both versions include an antivirus program, a Web browser (Mozilla Firefox), an instant messenger (Gaim), a Sudoku game, a calendar and task manager (Mozilla Sunbird), and an e-mail client (Mozilla Thunderbird). The Standard version also comes with a portable version of the OpenOffice suite, while the Lite version has the AbiWord word processor instead.Another all-in-one free collection can be found in winPenPack. The winPenPack suites come in more flavors than Portable Apps–Essential, 1Gb, School, Game, Web–and there is even an option to make your own. You can also download individual applications. The offerings fall into a wide range of categories–from office, Internet, graphics, multimedia, and development to security, system, and utilities. The choices include considerable overlap with PortableApps, with both offering Mozilla and OpenOffice products, for example.What’s for launch? Running your portable applications will be easier if you have a pop-up menu launcher. You’ll find one in U3 flash drives, as well as in both PortableApps and winPenPack. In each case, an icon is added to the taskbar tray (the icon-studded area near the clock); click it to see a Start-menu equivalent that lists the applications on your flash drive. Personally, I find the winPenPack launcher to be the most flexible and easiest to customize. You can download this launcher separately from winPenPack. If none of those meet your needs, you can try still another free portable app launcher, PStart, from Pegtop Software.Roam the lands of the free. But big collections are not the only place to find portable applications. Sometimes you can find a portable version of your favorite program just by using your favorite search engine, entering the application name and then “portable” as keywords.Other good places include sites like Portable Freeware and the portable freeware section of Ned Wolf’s Absolutely Free Software site. Another site where you can find a portable section is Snapfiles.Finally, try entering the keyword “portable” in the search box of your favorite software download page–for example, at (where else?) PC World Downloads.Do Right by Your DataWhether you carry your work files with you on your flash drive or store them online, you’ll still need to take some precautions to protect those files, your privacy, and your computers from harm, whether accidental or malicious. Here are some steps to consider.Scan for safety. Since using your USB drive on an unknown computer exposes the drive to additional risks, be sure to install antispyware and antivirus software as part of your set of portable applications. As an additional precaution, scan the flash drive itself from your regular computer the next time you return home to make sure it didn’t pick up any bugs.Use common sense. Because a host computer like one in a hotel business center or an Internet cafe may have keyloggers that record your passwords, portable computing can never be 100 percent safe. But you can limit the risk by avoiding credit-card transactions when using your portable system on another machine. And it goes without saying that you should avoid online banking in these situations.Shred it; don’t sweat it. If you’re working on sensitive documents, you should keep them encrypted while stored on your flash drive. For example, the open-source program TrueCrypt or the freeware archiving program IZarc2Go both offer encryption features that run on a flash drive.In most cases, you’ll have to copy documents out of the encrypted folder or container before working on them, and then copy them back when you’re done. For added security, use a shredding application to destroy the work copies (after you’ve put a copy back in the encrypted folder of course). CyberShredder and UltraShredder are two free portable utilities that do the job.Back up your portable, too. Because these devices are small and easily misplaced, backing up your portable USB “computer” is arguably even more important than the backups you do for your main system. The applications are much smaller, so backing up is faster, and the resulting files take less room on your backup drive. All of the suites mentioned above include backup utilities.Of course, you don’t really need such a utility; you can always just use Explorer to drag and drop the contents of your flash drive to a backup disk. The important thing is to do it regularly. Brought to you by PCWorld 7 min read How Success Happenslast_img read more
