BlackBerry faces India disconnection

first_img KCS-content JUST days after avoiding its services being shut down in Saudi Arabia, BlackBerry is facing an even bigger problem, with India questioning whether to allow its services.The emerging economic superpower may temporarily shut down BlackBerry’s messenger and email facilities if security concerns are not addressed in a meeting later today.The news will heap pressure on BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM), which was forced to cave in to Saudi demands to hand over user codes that would let Saudi authorities monitor its BlackBerry Messenger service.In a matter of a few weeks the BlackBerry device – long the darling of the world’s chief executives and politicians – has become the target for its encrypted email and messaging services.India, like several countries in the Middle East and North Africa, wants access to encrypted Blackberry communication, which has been linked to militant activity including the Mumbai attacks in 2008.India’s home ministry will press for a deadline to be fixed for RIM to share encryption details.Mobile phone operators could be asked to shut down RIM’s enterprise email and messenger services temporarily as a last alternative, if RIM does not agree to offer access to data.The responsibility to meet Indian security requirements rests with mobile phone operators in India rather than RIM.

Rupeni Caucau is back – Hatrick vs Toulon

first_imgWednesday Dec 26, 2007 Rupeni Caucau is back – Hatrick vs Toulon Overweight, unfit, and with a lack of match practice, Rupeni Caucaunibuca has once again proved that when fit, he is quite possibly the most exciting player to be seen since the likes of Jonah Lomu.The big Fijian left wing, who has been out for most of the season due to his poor disciplinary record (which includes absence without leave and testing positive for the use of cannabis), scored a thrilling hatrick of tries in his comeback match for Agen against the Pro D2 (French second division) leaders Toulon.Scoring the first try in under 3 minutes, Rupeni made a huge impact. I say huge not only because of the quality of the try, but because he is now tipping the scales at a hefty 115 kgs/253 pounds. If it weren’t for his number he could easily be mistaken for a front rower. In fact, his eating habits have been noted as a problem for his health and have been particularly worrying for his manager.The Agen manager actually last week stated in the press that the game against Toulon was Rupeni’s last chance to perform. The message obviously hit home because perform he did, with three fantastic tries that rejuvenated the Agen fans after a few disappointing performances prior to this thrashing of log leaders Toulon.The first try, that saw him brushing aside three defenders, was reminiscent of his glory days with Auckland and Fiji. That devastating speed and low centre of gravity once again proved impossible to stop. He made the second try look simple, and his third was sheer class. Making a great tackle, he then got up to pick up the messy ball with one hand and speed away for the try. Very similar to the third try he scored against the Brumbies in 2003. Not many players in the world can do that when on the run.Unfortunately Caucaunibuca has only played twice for his country since his dazzling 2003 displays. Fiji haven’t been very forgiving towards his disciplinary issues, but French club Agen have given him another chance, and with Monday’s startling performance he has more than likely saved his season, and he will hopefully continue to entertain for many games to come.

Training used to tighten control of China’s media

first_img Follow the news on China Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures News RSF_en December 18, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Training used to tighten control of China’s media The government has announced measures designed to tighten its grip on the national media, including a national exam for journalism students that could entail more intensive study of Marxism at university. The authorities have cited the need to combat media corruption.Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about the measures, regarding them as an attempt to control news coverage “at the source” and even to “indoctrinate” journalists.“The authorities regard freedom of information and opinion as the Communist Party’s enemies,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By citing corruption cases, some of which are not proven, the government claims to be trying to put the media back on the right path and remind them of their role as the engine of ‘social progress.’“The Party would be better off concentrating on its own internal corruption problems. The existence of corruption at all levels of the administration is one of the main causes of its spread to the news media.“The arbitrary control methods used by the government not only infringe on freedoms; they are also counterproductive. Imposing the teaching of Marxism or ‘ideological standards’ in journalism will not help to reestablish ethical behaviour or improve social discipline or the party’s image.”This “national examination” for journalists, to be used to determine their suitability to cover the news, has existed since 2003 but it seems that the new version will be stricter. In September, the General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television asked all the media to organize classes to prepare their employees for the exam.The next exam, on which the renewal of 250,000 press cards will depend, will be held in January and February and will consist of six subjects: Chinese socialism, the Marxist vision of journalism, journalistic ethics, regulation of journalism, the rule of news reporting, and combatting rumours.The declared goal of this initiative is ending the corruption that is endemic in the media. This was also the grounds on which Xiong Xiong, the editor of the Beijing Youth Daily supplement Digital Age, and Yang Kairan, the editor of the Jinghua Times’ automobile section, were arrested on 12 December.Xiong and Jang are accused of taking bribes of up to 10,000 yuan from private-sector companies. A few weeks ago Zhen Yongzhou, a journalist with Xin Kuai Bao, confessed on television to taking bribes in order to report allegedly fraudulent accounting in the semi-state-owned company Zoomlion.China is ranked 173rd out of 179 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet.” ChinaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information center_img ChinaAsia – Pacific China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison to go further Organisation News June 2, 2021 Find out more News News March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Fannie Mae and our servicers stand with homeowners who have been impacted by these extremely challenging conditions,” said Malloy Evans, Vice President of Servicing at Fannie Mae. “We are working with our servicers to ensure assistance is offered to borrowers and communities in need. Our thoughts are with all of those who have been impacted.”But the industry is also providing immediate relief for the more practical needs of those hardest hit by the storm. For example, ZVN Properties partnered with MercyChefs, a faith-based, non-profit disaster relief organization, to help feed first responders and rescue workers as well as some of the residents impacted by the hurricane.“We are in a position where we can help these people that are effected and we decided that this was the right thing to do,” said Bryan Lysikowski, Co-founder and CEO of ZVN Properties. “We chose them as a partner and are currently sending staff to their headquarters to help drive vehicles down to the affected areas.”Lysikowski says that it is important for the industry to be a source of hope for its customers, especially in difficult times.
