Elton John AIDS Foundation Will Introduce New Film The Promise At Academy

first_imgAt the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF)’s 25th annual Academy Awards Viewing Party to be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at West Hollywood Park, Sir Elton John and David Furnish will introduce Open Road and Survival Pictures new film – The Promise – which tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in Turkey at the outset of World War I.Written by Terry George and Robin Swicord and directed by Terry George (Hotel Rwanda), The Promise stars Oscar Issac, Christian Bale, and Charlotte Le Bon.“We have only to look at the horrific HIV/AIDS outbreak that followed in the wake of the Rwandan genocide in the mid-1990s to understand the direct connection between human rights atrocities and public health crises like the AIDS epidemic,” said EJAF Founder Elton John. “Through our friendships with the Manoukian family and producer Dr. Eric Esrailian from UCLA, David and I became more personally aware of the Armenian Genocide and its timely relevance to social issues today. The film’s theme #KeepThePromise can be interpreted as keeping the promise to remember and learn from the atrocities of the past, as well as keeping the promise to end AIDS. At EJAF, we are committed to #KeepThePromise and raise awareness about this powerful film that uses classic storytelling to inspire people to take action today. We are honored to share the important timing of our Oscar-night event to introduce people to The Promise.”In addition to sharing EJAF’s vision for championing human rights, The Promise team at Survival Pictures has taken the unprecedented step of making the commitment to donate all proceeds from the film to nonprofit organizations including EJAF and other human rights and humanitarian groups. As part of this commitment and to inspire Party guests to give generously, Survival Pictures will match the pledges guests make to EJAF via text and live auction purchases made during EJAF’s Academy Awards Viewing Party with the goal of making this a record-setting evening.“Such giving has never happened with a film of this scale, we wanted the world to know about it, and we are incredibly grateful,” said EJAF Chairman David Furnish. “We are honored to announce this generosity, thanks to the late philanthropist and humanitarian Kirk Kerkorian, on the eve of EJAF’s 25th annual Academy Awards Viewing Party. Not only is The Promise committing to support EJAF’s work, but matching funds will be provided to inspire donors even more throughout the event and live auction.”Survival Pictures has also developed a social impact campaign for The Promise to help educate the global public about the genocides and mass atrocities of the 20th and 21st centuries, the discussion about the legal definition of genocide, and historical denialism. The impact campaign will inform and inspire people to take action so they become part of the anti-genocide movement led by human rights organizations like EJAF as well as change-makers dedicated to ending crimes against humanity and bringing perpetrators to justice.The film sets a love story in the midst of the growing unrest in 1914 Turkey leading up to the horrors of the Armenian Genocide. As the Great War looms, the mighty Ottoman Empire is crumbling. Constantinople, the once vibrant, multicultural capital on the shores of the Bosporus, is about to be consumed by chaos. Michael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac), arrives in the cosmopolitan hub as a medical student determined to bring modern medicine back to Siroun, his ancestral village in Southern Turkey where Turkish Muslims and Armenian Christians have lived side by side for centuries. Photo-journalist Chris Myers (Christian Bale), has come here only partly to cover geo-politics. He is mesmerized by his love for Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), an Armenian artist he has accompanied from Paris after the sudden death of her father. When Michael meets Ana, their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between the two men. As the Turks form an alliance with Germany and the Empire turns violently against its own ethnic minorities, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to survive even as events threaten to overwhelm them. Promises are made and promises are broken. The one promise that must be kept is to live on and tell the story.“The Armenian Genocide must, of course, never be forgotten and should be recognized, but our current headlines show that the same patterns of human rights violations are being replicated in too many parts of the world today,” said producer Dr. Eric Esrailian. “We are honored to have the support of Elton, David, and the entire EJAF family, and by joining forces, we can help the people in the world who need assistance right now.”last_img read more

SC order quashing RBI circular to give relief to power cos but delay bankruptcy proceedings

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court order quashing a Reserve Bank of India circular on resolving bad debt will provide relief to power companies and lenders as well as flexibility to restructure debts but will slowdown bankruptcy proceedings, experts said Tuesday. The Supreme Court on Tuesday quashed RBI’s February 12 circular, which prescribed rules for recognising one-day defaults by large corporates and initiating insolvency action as a remedy. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Vishrov Mukerjee, Partner, J Sagar Associates said after the Supreme Court judgment, the RBI may have to issue revised guidelines/circulars for the restructuring of stressed assets. “There is also a question mark over existing processes which may have been completed/nearing completion,” he said. “However, with the threat of IBC proceedings mitigated, it will give some breathing space to power companies and lenders as well as flexibility to restructure debts in a manner which ensures continuity and value maximization for lenders as well as power companies.” Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Cyril Shroff, Managing Partner, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, termed the ruling as a major development that shows how “proactive” the judiciary has been. “Whilst it’s too early to say but if banks voluntarily still invoke IBC – the practical impact will be minimal,” he said. ICRA senior vice president Sabyasachi Majumdar said the Supreme Court decision is likely to result in a further slowdown in the already tardy pace of resolution of stressed assets in the power sector. “This apart, the resolution process is in any case subjected to regulatory risks as exemplified in the case of the Prayagraj Power asset, where the regulator has given a recent directive for a discount in PPA tariff while allowing the shareholding change approval for the same,” he said. The RBI had on February 12, 2018, issued a circular on the resolution of stressed assets revised framework — commonly known as February 12 circular. According to the circular, lenders had to classify a loan account as stressed if there was even a day of default. The bankers had to mandatorily refer all accounts with over Rs 2,000 crore loans to the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) or the bankruptcy court if they failed to resolve the problem within 180 days of default. Lenders were supposed to file an insolvency application under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 within 15 days of the completion of the 180-day deadline. The circular also withdrew the loan resolution mechanisms the RBI had implemented, such as Corporate Debt Restructuring and Strategic Debt Restructuring. Power sector was the worst hit by the circular and so were companies in steel, textile, sugar and shipping sector. GMR Energy Ltd, RattanIndia Power Ltd, Association of Power Producers (APP), Independent Power Producers Association of India, Sugar Manufacturing Association from Tamil Nadu and a shipbuilding association from Gujarat moved different courts against the circular. The power sector argued that outstanding loans of Rs 5.65 lakh crore (as on March 2018) were a result of factors beyond their control such as unavailability of fuel and cancellation of coal blocks. The Supreme Court Tuesday held that the circular was ‘ultra vires’ — meaning it went beyond the scope of what the RBI can do when coming up with rules and regulations. Mukerjee said the Supreme Court verdict along with recent government decisions implementing the recommendations of the High-Level Empowered Committee will provide much needed respite and impetus to regulatory reform in the power sector.last_img read more

Court nixes rifle target makers defamation suit against NBC

Court nixes rifle target maker’s defamation suit against NBC NEW YORK, N.Y. – A rifle target maker missed its mark when it said in a lawsuit that NBC mischaracterized its exploding targets as bombs, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said an NBC “Today” show segment’s description of the product as a “bomb” was substantially true. The ruling rejected a 2015 lawsuit Tannerite Sports LLC brought against NBCUniversal News Group.In the defamation lawsuit, which sought unspecified damages, Tannerite said the March 2015 report mischaracterized its targets as bombs on a shelf. The court said NBC made clear the targets’ ingredients must be mixed and shot before they explode. The court also criticized Tannerite’s complaint that NBC associated its product with terrorists.A spokesman did not immediately return a message left Tuesday at the company’s Pleasant Hill, Oregon, headquarters.Lawyer David Cargille, who argued the case but no longer represents the company, said the claims should have been allowed to go to a jury. He said it was “wrong for the courtroom door to be closed by one judge.”NBC News said in a statement it was “very pleased that the court determined our reporting was accurate and that there was no basis for a libel suit.”The 2nd Circuit in a decision written by Circuit Judge Rosemary S. Pooler noted that Tannerite’s product guide recommends its targets be detonated “away from populated areas” and that improper use of them might start fires, be less safe or cause erratic performance.The appeals court said credible definitions of “bomb” describe objects designed or intended to explode rather than items that might happen to explode, such as an oxygen tank, a battery, a champagne bottle or a potato in a microwave oven.In its broadcast, NBC emphasized the easy accessibility of Tannerite targets, which can be bought online or at most sporting goods stores, the 2nd Circuit said. The appeals court added that NBC described the key ingredient of Tannerite targets as ammonium nitrate, a substance NBC noted was a favourite of terrorists and had been used in the deadly 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.According to Tannerite’s website, the company’s corporate investigator was trying to determine if its product was positively identified as having been used in an explosion in Manhattan in September 2016 that injured 30 people.State Assemblyman David Buchwald, a White Plains Democrat, said law enforcement authorities told him that it was. Legislation Buchwald introduced before the bombing to regulate products made by Tannerite and others in the state is pending.Buchwald noted that permits for the products are required in a few states, including Vermont, Maryland and Louisiana, while they have been banned in Tennessee and regulated in parts of California. He said the U.S. Forest Service also has banned them from its properties in five states because their misuse can ignite forest fires. by Larry Neumeister, The Associated Press Posted Jul 25, 2017 10:13 am MDT Last Updated Jul 25, 2017 at 5:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Ohio State feeding off lack of attention entering NCAA Tournament

Is it possible that both the Ohio State and University of Central Florida women’s basketball teams could feel underrated as they make final preparations for Saturday’s first-round NCAA Tournament game? Could be. OSU (22-9) is the No. 4 seed in the Dayton Region, and will play No. 13 seed UCF (22-10) at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at St. John Arena. After posting a 4-6 record in their first 10 conference games during the regular season, the Buckeyes appeared to be fading out of the postseason picture. OSU came on strong in the last month, however, winning nine consecutive games and claiming its third straight Big Ten Tournament title on March 6. Friday’s press conference featured questions that stood in stark contrast to the Buckeyes’ recent success and could serve as motivation. Buckeye guards Samantha Prahalis and Brittany Johnson found themselves responding to queries regarding regular-season rough patches and prior NCAA Tournament disappointments. Both Prahalis and Johnson reflected on the Buckeyes’ early-season struggles. “It was a long time ago,” Johnson said. “We’ve moved on and we’re focused now. We keep that negative stuff behind us.” Prahalis agreed. “We use it as motivation,” she said. “It was just something we had to overcome as a team.” Coach Joi Williams’ Knights (22-10) are riding a hot streak into Saturday’s contest as well. UCF claimed a conference tournament championship and an automatic NCAA Tournament berth by defeating Tulane, 85-73, in the Conference USA title game. UCF also brings an 11-game winning streak to St. John Arena. The Knights also were busy fending off media scrutiny on Friday. Williams said she is aware that few people have picked her team to upset OSU. “We have absolutely nothing to lose,” Williams said. “There’s not one of you guys in here that thinks UCF can win this game. We realize that.” One fair criticism of Williams’ UCF squad is its lack of size — none of the probable Knight starters slated to defend the towering OSU tandem of 6-foot-4 senior center Jantel Lavender and 6-5 freshman center Ashley Adams is taller than 5-10. “Certainly players like Jantel Lavender … they’re tough to stop,” Williams said. ” When you get to this time of year, I’m sure coach Foster’s not changing much. We’re not changing much (defensively).” Regardless of what questions are asked in interviews and whether either team makes changes ahead of Saturday’s game, Prahalis said OSU’s only focus is to beat UCF. “The only assurance is winning,” she said. “We have to win. Is it a little bit of pressure? Of course. We’ve just go to, you know, win.” read more

Vietnam fraud trial Death penalty for exhead of OceanBank

Nguyen Xuan Son was sentenced to death at the People’s Court in Hanoi (VIETNAM NEWS AGENCY/AFP)(BBC) The former head of a major Vietnamese bank has been sentenced to death for his role in a fraud case involving millions of dollars of illegal loans.Nguyen Xuan Son, who served as general director of OceanBank, was convicted of embezzlement, abuse of power and economic mismanagement.Dozens of former employees also received lengthy prison sentences in the major corruption trial.Nguyen Xuan Son’s lawyer told Reuters he would appeal the verdict.OceanBank is partially-state owned, so Son’s crime of mishandling state money was thought to be particularly serious. After leaving the bank, he rose to be head of state oil giant PetroVietnam.Vietnam is one of the world’s biggest executioners, according to Amnesty International, but this is believed to be the first time in years that the death penalty has been given to such a high-flying former official.Earlier in the day, the bank’s ex-chairman Ha Van Tham, once one of the richest people in Vietnam, was jailed for life on the same charges, and for violating lending rules.Judge Truong Viet Toan said: “Tham and Son’s behaviour is very serious, infringing on the management of state assets and causing public grievances, which requires strict punishment.”The bank’s ex-chairman Ha Van Tham was jailed for life (VIETNAM NEWS AGENCY/AFP )In total, 51 officials and bankers stood trial, accused of mismanagement leading to losses of $69m (£50m).The case comes amid a massive anti-corruption crackdown in Vietnam, which is ranked as one of the most corrupt countries in Asia. It is ranked 113th out of 176 countries on Transparency International’s corruption perceptions index.The government has vowed to tackle the issue in order to boost the country’s economic growth. In May, a top Vietnamese official was sacked for “serious violations” while running PetroVietnam.But analysts say that the blitz, while tackling corruption, has also mainly targeted opponents of Communist Party chief Nguyen Phu Trong.

New Police Program Aims to Keep LowLevel Offenders Out of Jail

first_imgOn Feb. 6 Behavioral Health System Baltimore and Baltimore City Police announced the launch of a new collaboration program called L.E.A.D that aims to help low-level drug offenders.Baltimore Councilman Brandon Scott (District 2) was one of the speakers at the announcement of the Baltimore Police Department’s new L.E.A.D. program. (Courtesy photo)L.E.A.D. (Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion) is a pre-booking diversion program according to a press release. Baltimore police officers can refer individuals suspected of low-level drug or prostitution crimes to case managers, who will help them access an array of services including drug treatment, mental health services, and housing aid.Individuals facing arrest can choose not to participate in L.E.A.D., and will go through the normal criminal justice process.“The L.E.A.D. program represents an important paradigm shift in the way we approach helping people with substance use disorders,” BHSB President and CEO Kathleen Westcoat said at a press conference. “Rather than responding with handcuffs, the LEAD program offers individuals a path to treatment and support services, which evidence shows is the most cost-effective approach to addressing substance abuse.”Baltimore Crisis Response will help operate the program with oversight by BHSB.“LEAD provides our officers with an alternative to arresting the same person over and over when we know that person needs help,” said BCP Commissioner Kevin Davis at the news conference.“Baltimore has an entrenched opioid addiction epidemic and we think it’s time to invest in a public-health approach instead of a criminal approach. We’re also hopeful that this will be another step in restoring more positive relationships between law enforcement and the community,” said Davis.Starting as a three year pilot in the west side of downtown Baltimore in an area that connects Martin Luther King Blvd, St Paul Street, Franklin Street, and Pratt Street, the program referrals will originate in this area, clients do not have to live in this specific area.At least 60 individuals are anticipated to be served by the program at any one time.In Baltimore City, 24,887 individuals have an opioid use disorder, and one out of every three Maryland residents incarcerated in state prison comes from Baltimore, many for low-level drug crimes. From January 2016 to September 2016, 342 people died of a heroin overdose in the city.L.E.A.D. has shown promising results in a handful of cities where it’s already being tested. In Seattle, a 2015 study credited the LEAD program with having a significant impact; participants were 58 percent less likely to be arrested again compared to non-participants and were more likely to obtain housing and employment which included legitimate income at any given time after their LEAD referral.“Criminalizing individuals with the disease of addiction is unscientific, inhumane, and unjust,” said Dr. Leana Wen, Baltimore City’s Health Commissioner.Baltimore is the sixth U.S. city to implement the LEAD program and is relying on a mix of public and private grant to support the pilot.last_img read more

Zefr Sells Its CopyrightFlagging and YouTube ChannelManagement Businesses to Vobile for 90

first_img Facebook Connects Video Copyright-Flagging System to Third-Party Tools Popular on Variety Fox TV Ad-Sales Veteran Toby Byrne Joins Zefr as President Vobile Group, a video protection and measurement company, announced a deal to acquire Zefr’s RightsID copyright-management and ChannelID YouTube channel-management businesses for about $90 million.According to the companies, Zefr’s RightsID and ChannelID together generated over $40 million in revenue in 2018 and were profitable. The deal stands to more than triple the revenue for Vobile, which reported sales of $15.2 million and a net loss of $2.5 million for the full year 2018.With the pact, about 100 of Zefr’s employees will join Vobile, which said it is opening a new office in L.A. to house the RightsID and ChannelID operations and serve entertainment-industry customers. Following the sale, Zefr will have a headcount of around 150.Zefr made the sale in order to focus entirely on its core contextual-advertising platform, formerly called BrandID. That analyzes millions of YouTube videos to determine the nature of the content — and reviews them to ensure they’re “brand safe” — to let advertisers buy targeted spots on the platform. Related “As we focus on capitalizing on the potential of our contextual-targeting platform, we believe we’ve found the perfect home for RightsID and ChannelID,” Zach James, Zefr’s co-founder and co-CEO, said in a statement. He added that Vobile’s acquisition “creates an unmatched content protection and measurement company for the modern digital-media market.”Founded in 2005, Santa Clara, Calif.-based Vobile provides a software-as-a-service platform for protecting, measuring and monetizing online video content. Customers include Hollywood film studios, TV networks and other content owners. The company’s shares are listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.Vobile said the deal to will let it combine existing business offerings for reducing revenue loss from copyright infringement with the Zefr platforms’ ability to measure and monetize video at a high scale. Zefr’s businesses also will give it deeper relationships with platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, Vobile said.“The new Vobile will empower content providers to protect and maximize the value of their assets, draw upon new distribution channels and analytically assess their efforts within the marketing funnel,” Vobile CEO Yangbin Wang (pictured above) said in a statementVobile was advised in the transaction by LionTree; Paul, Weiss, Rifkind Wharton & Garrison; and Freshfields Bruckhaus Denger. For Zefr, Nfluence Partners acted as financial adviser and King & Spalding was legal counsel.Investors in privately held Zefr include IVP, U.S. Venture Partners, MK Capital, Shasta Ventures, First Round Capital and Richmond Park Partners.

Remote Town Gets Fiber Internet With a Little Help from a Drone

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Bringing blazing fast Internet access to residents of remote rural communities isn’t high on the priority list of most ISPs. That may change, now that drones can be used to speed deployment.Over in Wales, BT subsidiary Openreach just finished cabling up the small village of Pontfadog. Now each resident — in all 20 of its houses — can download to their heart’s content at blistering speeds as fast as 1Gbps… and they have a drone to thank for it.The small quadrotor played a key role in the installation. It didn’t have enough raw power to pull the heavy fiber optic cable, mind you. Instead, the drone stretched a 100-meter pull line from two high points in the neighboring forest.Once the line had been run, workers hooked the fiber on and carefully pulled it across the span. Today, bandwidth-related annoyances like buffering are a thing of the past. Videos streams no longer degrade into pixelated sludge in Pontfadog.Chris Devismes, a retired teacher, told the BBC that the the new service “has made a world of difference.” Understandable, given that he shares his home with two teenagers with an exuberance for digital activities like binging on Netflix and lengthy Skype sessions.Lawmakers in the U.K. are currently working on legislation that will guarantee high-speed Internet access to all residents by 2020. Openreach has already expressed its interest, but reportedly doesn’t want to commit to the government’s current terms.Parliament is expected to make a decision by the end of the year. Openreach may want to order a few pallets of drones just in case they’re required to drastically shorten the timetable for rolling out more high-bandwidth connections. There’s plenty more terrain like what they dealt with in Pontfadog standing between Brits and their fiber.last_img read more

Study looks at immediate health benefits of renewable energy plants

first_img Explore further Is natural gas a ‘bridge’ to a hotter future? As the researchers note, most studies that look into the benefits of converting “dirty” energy production to “clean” renewable resource based systems, focus on the benefit to the planet as a whole, i.e. reducing greenhouse gas emissions and thus slowing global warming. They suggest another approach is to look at the health benefits that would occur for the people that live in the area—air pollution, it has been estimated kills approximately 200,000 people in the U.S. each year—and a lot of that pollution comes from coal fired power plants. In this new effort, the researchers wondered if it might be possible to create models that would reflect the immediate health benefits to people that live in the vicinity of dirty plants if they were replaced with non-air polluting plants.As a start, the team chose to use dollar amounts spent on health care due to pollution as a metric, because it can be quantified. Next, they chose six geographical areas to evaluate: Cincinnati, northern Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Chicago. For each of those areas, the team looked at what the impact would be of replacing a coal fired plant with either a 50 MW solar or wind plant, or two pollution reduction schemes that would involve reducing the amount of electricity meted out to customers. Then, they looked at the impact that each of the types of projects would have on the amount of electricity generated versus savings or constraints on the local grid, and of course the difference in emission of pollutants such as nitrogen oxide, carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide.Putting it all together resulted in a model that they could use to estimate the health benefits (in dollars) under each of the different scenarios. They found it was different for each region depending mostly on population density and baseline pollution levels—savings ranged from $5.7 to $210 million each year. The researchers believe their models could be used by planners to forecast potential health benefits when considering power generation options in the future. More information: Health and climate benefits of different energy-efficiency and renewable energy choices, Nature Climate Change (2015) DOI: 10.1038/nclimate2771AbstractEnergy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) can benefit public health and the climate by displacing emissions from fossil-fuelled electrical generating units (EGUs). Benefits can vary substantially by EE/RE installation type and location, due to differing electricity generation or savings by location, characteristics of the electrical grid and displaced power plants, along with population patterns. However, previous studies have not formally examined how these dimensions individually and jointly contribute to variability in benefits across locations or EE/RE types. Here, we develop and demonstrate a high-resolution model to simulate and compare the monetized public health and climate benefits of four different illustrative EE/RE installation types in six different locations within the Mid-Atlantic and Lower Great Lakes of the United States. Annual benefits using central estimates for all pathways ranged from US$5.7–US$210 million (US$14–US$170 MWh−1), emphasizing the importance of site-specific information in accurately estimating public health and climate benefits of EE/RE efforts. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers with affiliations to several institutions in the Boston area has conducted a study to determine the immediate health benefits to different parts of the country if coal or gas fired plants were replaced with solar or wind farms. In their paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change, the team describes how they created their models and why they believe they could be used to help with planning energy systems in the future.

New research from Eclypsium discloses a vulnerability in Bare Metal Cloud Servers

first_imgSecurity researchers at Eclypsium, a hardware security startup, published a paper yesterday, examining the vulnerabilities in Bare Metal Cloud Servers (BMCs) that allow attackers to exploit and steal data. “We found weaknesses in methods for updating server BMC firmware that would allow an attacker to install malicious BMC firmware..these vulnerabilities can allow an attacker to not only do damage but also add other malicious implants that can persist and steal data”, states the researchers. BMC is a highly privileged component and part of the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). It can monitor the state of a computer and allow an operating system reinstall from a remote management console through an independent connection. This means that there’s no need to physically attach a monitor, keyboard, and installation media to the server in BMCs. Now, although Bare-metal cloud offerings come with considerable benefits, they also pose new risks and challenges to security. For instance, in the majority of the cloud services, once a customer uses a bare-metal server, the hardware can be reclaimed by the service provider which is then repurposed for another customer. Similarly, for a bare-metal cloud service offering, the underlying hardware can be easily passed through different owners, providing direct access to control that hardware. This access gives rise to attackers controlling the hardware, who can spend a nominal sum of money for access to a server, and implant malicious firmware at the UEFI, BMC, and within drives or network adapters. This hardware can then get released by the attacker to the service provider, who could further pass it on for use to another customer. Eclypsium researchers have used IBM SoftLayer tecIhnology, as a case study to test the attack scenario on. However, researchers mention that the attack is not limited to any one service provider.IBM acquired SoftLayer Technologies, a managed hosting, and cloud computing provider in 2013 and is now known as IBM Cloud. The vulnerability found has been named as Cloudborne. Researchers chose SoftLayer as the testing environment due to its simplified logistics and access to hardware. However, SoftLayer was using a super vulnerable Supermicro server hardware. It took about 45 minutes for the Eclypsium team to provision the server. Once the instance was provisioned, they found out that it had the latest BMC firmware available. An additional IPMI user was created and given the administrative access to the BMC channels. This system was then finally released to IBM, which kicked off the reclamation process. Researchers noticed that the additional IPMI user was removed during the reclamation process but BMC firmware comprising the flipped bit was still present, meaning that servers’ BMC firmware was not re-flashed during the server reclamation process. “The combination of using vulnerable hardware and not re-flashing the firmware makes it possible to implant malicious code into the server’s BMC firmware and inflict damage or steal data from IBM clients that use that server in the future”, states the researchers. Other than that, BMC logs were also retained during provisioning, giving the new customer insights into the actions of the previous device owner. Also, the BMC root password was the same across provisioning, allowing the attacker to easily have control over the machine in the future. “While these issues have heightened importance for bare-metal services, they also apply to all services hosted in public and private clouds..to secure their applications, organizations must be able to manage these issues—or run the risk of endangering their most critical assets”, mentions Eclypsium researchers.

Embrace Home Loans Finicity Streamline Borrower Approvals

first_img June 8, 2018 598 Views Share Rhode Island-based Embrace Home Loans, a  digitally focused mortgage lender, announced that its borrowers can now rapidly verify assets through a digital experience, eliminating the need for borrowers to print, copy, and email paper bank statements, thereby reducing the process to secure a mortgage by up to a week or more.The innovation is a result of a software integration between Finicity, a provider of real-time financial data aggregation and insights, and Embrace’s loan origination system. When borrowers apply for a mortgage online, they can simply give Embrace permission to generate a verification of assets report using data direct from their bank. This process is more secure than sending printed documents or electronic documents via fax or email. The new capability also enables Embrace to take advantage of Fannie Mae’s Day 1 Certainty program, as Finicity is an approved report provider. This program provides lenders faster-documented loan approvals.”This is a dramatically improved experience for Embrace and for our customers,” said Embrace Home Loans CEO Dennis Hardiman. “With Finicity’s help, we’ve removed one of the biggest sources of friction in the mortgage process, which is documenting the borrower’s assets and income. It’s a landmark development in our journey toward becoming a fully digital mortgage lender.””More and more, customers expect services that they can access online via their phones or PCs, and it must be easy to understand and use,” said Steve Smith, Finicity’s CEO. “Embrace gets this, allowing us to work together to accelerate the mortgage process for borrowers while enabling them to retain total control over their financial information. We are excited to integrate with a digital innovator like Embrace.”Because Embrace is working directly with Finicity instead of going through a third-party vendor, the integration between the two companies is more flexible than similar arrangements. For example, Embrace is able to collect complete bank statements, which it can use to help assess a borrower’s income and cash flow. This is particularly helpful for self-employed borrowers, who often have difficulties verifying income because they are paid irregularly. For loan approval purposes, self-employed borrowers can now use cash flow data in their bank statements instead of tax forms.”Ensuring a borrower’s assets and income in just minutes not only lets us streamline approvals, we’re also removing hurdles for non-conventional loan borrowers as well,” Hardiman said. “After years of watching frustrated borrowers wrestle with requesting, copying and scanning paper bank statements, we’re now seeing loans sail through our system. In a word, it’s breathtaking.

first_imgBirdLife International has just released the publication European birds of conservation concern: populations, trends and national responsibilities it said on Wednesday.The publication summarises the conservation status of 541 wild bird species in 50 European countries and territories, and aims to help national governments to easily identify the species that are in urgent need of attention and protection.For Cyprus, the new report shows that 40 per cent of breeding species have an unfavourable conservation status.The most recent update of the European Red List of Birds indicates that 70 European bird species are classified as of global conservation concern, compared to 40 species in 2004.Species of global conservation concern that either breed or winter in Cyprus include the Eurasian Curlew Numenius arquata, the Common Pochard Aythya ferina and the Ferruginous Duck Aythya nyroca, the latter of which breeds at the newly restored Akrotiri Marsh.Cyprus is also important for European Roller Coracias garrulus, Masked Shrike Lanius nubicus, Chukar Alectoris chukar and Black Francolin Francolinus francolinus, the latter representing more than one third of the European population.Newly added to the list is also the endemic Cyprus Warbler Sylvia melanothorax, whose population has been decreasing by 5 – 25 per cent in the last years.Martin Hellicar, Director at BirdLife Cyprus said: “From our endemic Cyprus Warbler, to the globally threatened Ferruginous Duck that breeds here, to the waders that winter in the island’s wetlands, our duty becomes apparent. The European birds of conservation concern publication brings to the spotlight species that Cyprus has responsibility to conserve, at national, European and global level. Publications such as this one should be the steering factor that guides our conservation efforts for the listed species and the sites that they very much depend on.”You May LikeMemory Care | Search AdsLuxury Memory Care Facilities Near Rowland Heights For SeniorsMemory Care | Search AdsUndoFigLeaf Beta AppTake Online Privacy on a whole New levelFigLeaf Beta AppUndoThrone: Free Online GamesPlay This Game For 1 Minute and See why Everyone is Addicted!Throne: Free Online GamesUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
