Time to go on a Cruise

first_imgSOUTHERN CRUISE, who was third in the St Leger as a three-year-old in 2015, should give Super-6 players a flying start when he runs in the opening race (restricted allowance III) over 1400 metres, to be contested by seven starters.Trained by Anthony Nunes, SOUTHERN CRUISE is easily the most accomplished in the field, and following his close second to TARANIS in the recent New Year’s Day Trophy over 1300 metres, the 4-y-o son of Western Cruise cannot be opposed with champion jockey Shane Ellis aboard. Stable companion BALLON D’OR should follow him home.The second race over the round-five course for maiden four-year-olds up has attracted 10 starters, and indications are it will come down to a straight fight between IAMALLABOUTTHEBEST (Robert Halledeen up) and SIR LEYLAND HALL (Ryan Nelson), both of whom have shown promise.The Paul Hylton-trained SIR LEYLAND HALL finished second to TRADITIONAL STORM over 1200 metres when last raced in September 2015, while the Burt Tomlinson-trained IAMALLABOUTHEBEST showed good speed when finishing fourth to LAGUNA POINT over the straight on January 1.With Lasix administered for the first time, IAMALLABOUTHEBEST (working fairly well) is preferred to SIR LEYLAND HALL, who has not been seen at exercise and is apparently training at sea.The second banker in the first Super-6 comes in the third race over 1500 metres in the form of NUCLEAR AFFAIR, who was caught on the line by FUTURE KING in the SVL 2-Y-O Stakes over a mile last Boxing Day.Trained by Gary Subratie, the 3-y-o daughter of Nuclear Wayne reports in fine fettle (working well) and with three-time champion jockey Dane Nelson having secured the ride, should account for old rival ANOTHER FURY under Wesley Henry.EL CLIENTE, now dropped in class for the fourth race over 1200 metres for $180,000 claimers, will prove hard to deny from the convenient mark of 54.0kg due to apprentice Odean Edwards’ 3.0kg claiming allowance. The six-year-old gelding has run some good races against better horses in recent months, and despite the sound claims of the recent winner EUSEBIA and super-fit ENHANCE PROSDPERITY, the choice has to be EL CLIENTE.The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by TURBO MACHINE CAT (knocking at the door) and the well-forward first-time runner MEGATRON (Shane Ellis up) in the sixth, division one of the Mercury Sprint for native bred maiden three-year-old colts and geldings. Their respective dangers are MAN IN BLUE and newcomer BOLD SYMPHONY (working fairly well).FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES(1) SOUTHERN CRUISE(2) IAMALLABOUTTHEBEST(3) NUCLEAR AFFAIR(4) EL CLIENTE/EUSEBIA(5) TURBO MACHINE CAT(6) MEGATRON/BOLDSYMPHONY- O.C.last_img read more

Google Apps Tries to Hook ’em While They’re Young

first_imgTags:#enterprise#Trends IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Google has given free versions of Apps to colleges and universities for two years now. But as part of the “Going Google” campaign, they’ve pushed extra hard on educational institutions to adopt Apps. Why?Even if the core of Google’s strategy has been to entice paying enterprises over to Apps, giving away professional-quality email hosting and other solutions to students is the classic “hook ’em while they’re young” strategy. From elementary school to college, Google is flooding the market with their products in the hope that these kids will demand it when they enter the workforce. From Kindergarten to DoctorateMost of the major additions to Apps in the last year have been aimed at enterprise customers. When Apps left beta, Google laid out a clear roadmap in that direction.But ever since the new marketing campaign hit the streets, outlets such as the official GoogleAtWork Twitter account and the Google Enterprise blog have spent much of their time talking about the Education Edition of Apps. Nearly every week, they announce another university that is deploying Apps: this week’s was Notre Dame. Google isn’t stopping at the university level either. The company recently unveiled a program for K-12 teachers as well. Younger Workers are the Enterprise 2.0 EngineIn a report on Enteprise 2.0 issued earlier this week, usability guru Jakob Nielsen clearly asserted the importance of the younger generation of employees as drivers for the adoption of new ways of doing business and new software platforms. He also said that this was largely the by-product of their use of social media outside of work:As people embrace social media in their private lives, they naturally expect to use similar tools within the enterprise. This is especially true for younger workers who use these tools in everyday life.The corollary in this case would be people embracing Google Apps early in their academic lives. Google is clearly hoping that as students grow up using Gmail and Google Docs for their academic work, their familiarity will translate directly into enterprise purchases of Apps in the future. steven walling Related Posts center_img 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more

first_imgThirty-nine families, including two residing in a houseboat, were rescued on Saturday in two separate operations here following heavy snowfall, an official spokesman said. District administration of Srinagar along with police personnel rescued 37 nomadic families stranded in the Panthachowk area of the city, the spokesman said. He said the families were provided accommodation at Panthachowk, apart from blankets, ration and assistance for basic needs. The nomadic families along with livestock were on their way to Poonch district when they were caught in heavy snowfall, he said.Rescued from houseboat In another operation, the spokesman said at least 12 members of two families residing in a houseboat in Jhelum river were rescued. The houseboat owned by the families sank on Saturday evening in Kothibagh area of the city leaving the families in distress, he said. Srinagar Deputy Commissioner Shahid Iqbal Choudhary along with senior officers from departments, members of flood control, State Disaster Response Force and police reached the spot, the spokesman said.He added that Srinagar district administration also provided assistance to 11 families whose houses were damaged in two separate fire incidents in Habbak area of Ganpatyar and Tibetan Colony.Fresh snowfall was experienced in parts of Kashmir as a thick layer of fog engulfed the Valley, affecting air traffic here, officials said. Kokernag town in south Kashmir recorded 3.8 mm of snow, while the highway township of Qazigund along the Jammu-Srinagar national highway registered 0.2 mm of snowfall, he said. Pahalgam tourist resort recorded 2.2 mm of fresh snowfall, the official said. He said there are reports of snowfall in some other areas in the higher reaches of the Valley. The official said a thick layer of fog engulfed most parts of the Valley on Saturday morning as the temperature dipped to freezing point. The fog affected the flight operations at Srinagar airport as most of the flights were delayed, while two were cancelled.Highway blockedA fresh landslide blocked the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Ramban district, leaving thousands of commuters stranded at various places, officials said. The traffic on the 270-km highway, the only all-weather road linking Kashmir with rest of the country, was restored in the morning after remaining closed for two days due to heavy snowfall and landslides at several places.“A massive landslide occurred on the highway near Mahar, 2 km away from Ramban town, around 2 pm,” a traffic department official said. A clearance operation was immediately launched but, given the volume of the debris, the road is likely to be thrown open for traffic only on Sunday, according to the official. Power supply restoredPower supply to all hospitals in Kashmir has been restored after heavy snowfall caused massive damage to power infrastructure, officials said. At a meeting, Kashmir Divisional Commissioner Baseer Ahmad Khan took stock of electricity restoration works in each district and was informed that power supply has been restored at all hospitals and various parts of the valley, a spokesperson said.last_img read more

This hacker will trick you and youll be glad she did

first_img Now playing: Watch this: 0 Share your voice 7:40 Post a comment Hacking How to master the art of deception like a hacker Most hackers attack software. _sn0ww hacks the real world. She’s a master of disguise who carries gadgets that can secretly copy your keyfobs, she can program a mobile app to copy and mimic your phone, and she discovered our passwords without writing a single line of code. Stephanie Carruthers, known in cybersecurity circles as _sn0ww, is one of IBM X-Force Red’s best “social engineers” and is as adept at exploiting people as she is at cracking software. Her job is to discover, exploit and document loopholes in physical security systems. She never breaks the law, but she does think like a criminal in order to help companies and law enforcement agencies find physical and digital vulnerabilities.   Tags “It’s [the job of the social engineer] to think outside the filter bubble, no matter what that bubble might be. And then to find the exploits you’re not even thinking about,” _sn0ww explained. “If I do my job right, you’ll never know you got hacked.”Watching her work is thrilling and frightening. _sn0ww is so talented that when she visited our studio at CBS News we didn’t realize she was in disguise until she dramatically ripped off her wig and glasses, halfway through our interview. She then pulled a slender mechanical device from her handbag and demonstrated how, from a short distance away, she could easily scan and copy office security keys. _sn0ww uses secret mobile applications to mimic cellphone information, like a telephone number, contact names, and other seemingly legitimate caller information. She uses this tool to establish trust and fool targets into revealing information. “A good social engineer can easily pose as your bank or your university or any organization that has a legitimate reason to ask you personal questions,” she said. “I ask a series of questions, and if the call is coming from a trusted contact most people don’t think twice about sharing details.”She was able to discover our passwords by researching our work and school history on LinkedIn. Then, posing as a curious relative, she was able to find enough information to discover personal details about that seemed to be hidden from the open web but weren’t. These details helped her verify personal information scraped from a data breach that contained our passwords. Security Gadgets Computerslast_img read more

Such purchase can also be made from a third country taking India’s consent, the sources added.last_img read more

Ozil takes iftar with Erdogan

first_imgA handout photo released on 18 May, 2019 by the Turkish President`s press office shows Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan (C) next to Arsenal`s German soccer player Mesut Ozil (L), who is of Turkish descent, and his fiancee Amine Gulse (R) during an iftar dinner in Istanbul. Photo: AFPArsenal’s German midfielder Mesut Ozil dined with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during a Ramadan iftar meal in Istanbul late Saturday, a move likely to cause a backlash after previous meetings caused controversy.Images in Turkish media showed a smiling Ozil and model fiancee Amine Gulse, sitting at a table on either side of Erdogan at the Ottoman-era Dolmabahce Palace.The iftar, the meal for breaking the fast during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, was also attended by young Turks ahead of Youth and Sports Day on Sunday, a national holiday in Turkey.In another photo, Ozil and Gulse were sitting in a room with Erdogan, joined by Fahrettin Altun, communications director at the Turkish presidency.Ozil, who has Turkish roots, was criticised in March after inviting Erdogan to his wedding to the former Miss Turkey scheduled for this summer.He had already sparked controversy last year when he was photographed with Erdogan, which led to Ozil becoming a target of xenophobic comments.After their meeting in May 2018, Ozil’s loyalty to Germany was questioned and following a disappointing World Cup performance last year, he left the national squad and claimed there was racism within the German FA. The German FA dismissed his criticism.last_img
