Rob Ford facing new allegations

New documents have revealed a long list of allegations against Toronto mayor Rob Ford and his past football coaching.The complaints made by members of the Toronto Catholic District School Board say Ford made players roll around in goose droppings, showed up drunk to the final practice before a championship game, and threatened to beat up a teacher. The complaints also include Ford’s apparent refusal to provide a criminal background check to the board. Ford was removed from his coaching duties in May 2013 after he made comments that suggested his players at Don Bosco Catholic Secondary were gang members. Ford, nor his campaign manager and brother Doug Ford, have responded to the allegations. Ford is running for re-election in the October 27th Toronto municipal election. read more

UN Tribunal gives former Rwandan senior official 25year sentence for 1994 genocide

The International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda (ICTR) said this was the first case it had decided which specifically concerned the massacres of Tutsi civilians in Gikongoro prefecture and the sentence was based on his participation in the massacres at the Murambi Technical School and in Kaduha Parish.Mr. Simba, who was arrested in Senegal in November 2001, distributed weapons at the school and in Kaduha, according to the court. Militiamen, backed by gendarmes, on 21 April 1994 killed thousands of Tutsi civilians at the school, in nearby Cyanika Parish and in Kaduha Parish, in what the Chamber described as “a highly coordinated operation” involving the support of local authorities and prominent people.The ICTR noted that this operation went on for about 12 hours on a single day. Mr. Simba was a member of the “Comrades of the Fifth of July,” who participated in the coup d’état that brought former President Juvenal Habyarimana, a Hutu, to power in 1973. Mr. Habyarimana died in the crash of a Falcon aircraft on 6 April 1994 in Rwanda, along with his Burundian counterpart Cyprian Ntayamira. The deaths set off a chain of killings throughout Rwanda, with more than 800,000 people, mostly minority Tutsis and moderate Hutus, killed in the genocide. The Court said, however, that it was not convinced that Mr. Simba was one of the architects of the genocide and added that his actions did not show any particular zeal or sadism. In particular, he did not personally kill anyone and only remained at the sites for a brief period. He will receive credit for the 4 years and 16 days he has been in detention since his arrest.The Tribunal has handed down judgements in cases involving 26 people, and 26 other defendants are presently on trial. read more

Spread of literacy among women highlighted in UNESCO anniversary global review

The publication, Reading the past, writing the future: Fifty years of promoting literacy, marks the “uplifting and sobering” fiftieth anniversary of UNESCO’s efforts to mark global progress on literacy, celebrated annually on 8 September as International Literacy Day. The authors of the current report examine the nature and evolution of the educational challenge, and take stock of literacy initiatives worldwide. The spread of literacy among women has been a key feature of the past fifty years. However, the gap between male and female literacy rates only started narrowing from 1990 onwards. UNESCO projects that it is likely to keep unfolding over the period of 2015-30 and beyond. While various positive trends are highlighted, Qian Tang, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education, in the publication’s foreword, calls for “renewed and strengthened commitment to support literacy promotion for all, including the 758 million youth and adults currently excluded from the networks of written communication.” The authors note that around 1950, just over half of all the world’s people were reported as being literate. Since then, they state, the adult literacy rate has increased by five percentage points every decade on average, to 86 per cent in 2015. Literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate and compute, using printed and written materials associated with various contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve his or her goals, develop his or her knowledge and potential, and participate fully in community and wider society. UNESCO 2005a:21One of the report’s main findings is that there are now more illiterate adults compared with 50 years ago, meaning that literacy efforts have not kept pace with population growth, a trend Mr. Tang finds “troubling”. Resources to educate adultsThe UN’s educational agency identifies sufficient resources for education as one of the bottlenecks for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically Goal 4, on ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, including for the large and growing group of illiterate adults. The authors find that funding for adult education and literacy has rarely been adequate. UNESCO claims that lack of funding is one of the reasons why progress continues to be slow in certain regions and countries. Among the surveyed countries, only four devote 3 per cent or more of their educational budget to adult education.Total aid to education by the members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is about 1.4 per cent of their total aid budget, according to the UNESCO report, with only a few OECD-members devoting more than 3 per cent of their individual funding to education. Numbers of illiterate adults (aged 15 and above) and illiterate young people (aged 15–24) (million), by region, 1950 and 2015. Graphic: UNESCO Regional disparitiesProgress has been far from uniform across countries and regions. UNESCO defines the spread of literacy among young people – especially young women – as a decisive trend for Western Asia and Northern Africa regions, with regional youth literacy rates reaching almost 95 per cent in 2015. UNESCO argues that the spread of literacy has contributed to the demand for political freedom and socio-economic development expressed by young people in these regions. It also points out that their reading and writing proficiency will be crucial for democratization and stabilization in both regions. Eastern Asia and South-East Asia have almost universalized literacy thanks to steady progress since the 1960s. Most countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have also reached high adult literacy and almost universal youth literacy in recent decades.For decades large-scale adult illiteracy will persist in Southern Asia, UNESCO projects. The number of illiterate adults has merely stabilized, but the region still counts 43.9 million illiterate young people. Progress made in the last 25 years has been hampered by extreme poverty and conflict.Other regions, such as Sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania face specific difficulties. UNESCO warns that both regions cannot be expected to reach universal youth literacy rates by 2030 if current trends continue. It claims that sub-Saharan Africa – accounting for almost half of the world’s illiterate people – is the only region in which the number of illiterate young people kept increasing. The report is based on data from UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS) and information from UNESCO Institute of Lifelong Learning (UIL). The publication analyses trends and impacts of literacy programmes on 50 countries around the world. read more

Mens basketball Bruins too much for Ohio State Buckeyes lose 8673 in

OSU senior forward Marc Loving (2) looks down the court to redshirt junior guard Kam Williams (15) during the Buckeyes 78-68 win over Navy on Nov. 11. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorAn upset was not in the cards for the Ohio State men’s basketball team, as the Buckeyes fell to the No. 2 UCLA Bruins 86-73 in the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas. After matching pace with UCLA throughout the first half, the Buckeyes fell victim to the up-tempo Bruins offense and the big-play ability of freshman guard Lonzo Ball. Despite 15 team turnovers, an eight point, nine assist and nine rebound performance by Ball powered the Bruins’ 12th win.OSU was led by senior forward Marc Loving, who knocked down 7-of-11 shots, including a 3-for-6 mark from deep to rack up 19 points. Junior forward Jae’Sean Tate added 15 points, but was a non-factor in rebounding and assists, picking up just two boards and one assist.Holding true to its defensive efforts all season, UCLA struggled to limit open looks at the basket for the Buckeyes. As a team, OSU went 29-for-62 from the field, but struggled to find the mark from deep for the second-straight game.The lack of outside production (20.8 percent from 3), paired with 18 turnovers, doomed the Buckeyes down the stretch. OSU was able to grab a 26-25 lead with 6:30 remaining in the first with a bullet pass from sophomore guard JaQuan Lyle to junior forward Keita Bates-Diop that led to a wide-open layup. Bates-Diop finished with 13 points, while Lyle hit just one of his eight shot attempts.However, starting the second half, a 7-0 run by the Bruins two  minutes into the period pushed UCLA out in front, and left OSU scrambling to try and catch back up. The Buckeyes did themselves no favors, turning the ball over 10 times in the second, and fouling the Bruins 15 times.Late in the game, after pulling within six points, OSU allowed multiple open looks for UCLA, and the Buckeyes failed to make a field goal in the last 4:05.UCLA sophomore guard Aaron Holiday and senior guard Bryce Alford each poured in 20 points, with five steals from the sophomore guard.With the loss, The Buckeyes are now 8-3 this season. UCLA is still perfect, now with a 12-0 mark this year.OSU returns to Columbus Tuesday to face Youngstown State at 7 p.m. The Penguins are 6-6, and are coming off a 101-97 victory over Niagara University. read more

Dodger Carl Crawford Warned for Wearing Jackie Robinson Cleats

Major League Baseball warned Los Angeles Dodger slugger Carl Crawford against wearing the special edition Jackie Robinson cleats he wore as a tribute on Monday.Crawford was among several major league players who received two pairs of the special edition No. 42 cleats produced by Nike Air Jordan — one pair in Brooklyn Dodgers blue, the other pair in white. Instead of wearing a matching pair, Crawford wore s shoe of each color on the 66th anniversary of Robinson breaking the color barrier in the majors. However, the league was not pleased with Crawford’s uniform violation, ESPN reported.According to the network, Crawford said his agent received a call from the league office instructing him not to wear either the blue or white special edition Nike Jordan PEs in a game again.Crawford  said he got the idea to wear one blue shoe and one white shoe after seeing on the clubhouse TV that Jimmy Rollins had changed shoes between his at-bats Monday night.“I was like, ‘OK, he had a little fun with it, so let me have fun with it,’ ” Crawford said. “The league doesn’t want us to have any fun, I guess.”Crawford went 3 for 5 with one blue shoe and one white, so you could see from a baseball superstitious standpoint how he’d want to defy the rules and keep wearing those shoes. But he was back to typical blue cleats for batting practice Tuesday. read more

Huge spike in spam delivers flood of malware to inboxes in August

first_imgEarlier this year, a group led by Microsoft pulled off one of the largest coordinated takedowns of a botnet ever. The target was Rustock, a notorious pharmaceutical spam machine that controlled nearly a million PCs at the height of its power. Almost overnight, global spam levels dropped by 25% following Rustock’s demise and within weeks the volume had fallen another 15%.Other networks are still alive and kicking, however. Cutwail remains a force to be reckoned with, and it’s now pushing more than gambling and singles sites or cheap prescription drugs. Cutwail has been pumping out nearly twice the malware-laden spam that it normally does.M86 Security Labs has shared a chart showing the flow of malware it’s detected, and you can clearly see the trend. Since January, malware attachments have been more and more common. The bundle being delivered typically includes fake antivirus or system tuning software, the SpyEye malware, and the Cutwail spambot code.The malicious emails are easy enough to detect, and you may already have seen some like what Cutwail sends out. A .ZIP or .RAR attachment is always included, and subjects range from bogus FedEx and UPS tracking information to fraudulent credit card charge “alerts” to invoices and changelogs.Avoiding infection is simple enough. Most of the time the messages won’t be addressed in your name — or even the name of anyone you know. Some use a more generic greeting like “Guest,” but those are often reportedly sent from swanky digs like the Ritz-Carlton Hotel — so if you haven’t stayed there, you probably don’t need to open that attachment. Messagess are also typically riddled with bad grammar and the sender’s address (my@email.com) doesn’t even bother to match the business’s name in the message.More at M86 Securitylast_img read more

WWE Main Event Results – 122314 Harper vs Swagger

first_img Twitter Facebook Results courtesy of WWE.com.WWE Main Event results, Dec. 23, 2014: The fight before ChristmasSioux City, IOWA – Twas two nights before Christmas and WWE Main Event brought the action to WWE Network! Cesaro and Tyson Kidd faced off against Los Matadores, Summer Rae battled Brie Bella, Big E faced the cosmic magic of Stardust and Luke Harper looked to take out his aggression on Jack Swagger.Cesaro & Tyson Kidd def. Los MatadoresLooking to make a statement two nights before Christmas, Tyson Kidd and Cesaro made their way to WWE Main Event poised to take down Los Matadores – fresh off a huge victory against former WWE Tag Team Champions Gold & Stardust on Raw.Kidd and Cesaro are both aggressive competitors and the mix of Kidd’s agility and technical ability with Cesaro’s power complement each other well. Their relentless offense and teamwork paid off in a big way as they controlled a majority of the bout from the opening bell, rarely letting Diego or Fernando get the upper hand. After a dominating performance, Cesaro and Kidd executed a devastating maneuver that displayed their respective power and agility to secure the victory.Brie Bella def. Summer RaeBrie Bella and Summer Rae locked up on WWE Main Event as Brie’s sister – and WWE Divas Champion – Nikki looked on from ringside. A former wearer of the Divas Title, Brie didn’t waste any time taking control of the bout. Summer Rae struggled to defend herself from the onslaught, but managed to swing momentum in her favor. Her supremacy in the ring was short-lived as Brie Mode was in full effect. Once again mounting a ferocious offense, Brie took her opponent down with a dropkick from the turnbuckle and picked up the win.Big E def. StardustA New Day descended upon WWE Main Event as Big E went one-on-one with Stardust in the ultimate battle of power against cosmic awareness. As the opening bell sounded, Big E immediately put his size and power to use, sending Stardust from the ring to rethink his strategy. Regardless of his recalibrating, Big E still maintained an advantage with his raw strength, once again forcing Stardust to refocus his attacks. This proved useful as the bizarre Superstar took control, remaining on an offensive that kept Big E off his feet.After trading momentum, Stardust seemed to have the match won after Big E was distracted by Goldust, knocking him off the ring apron. Ready to secure victory, Stardust leapt onto the top rope, however Goldust pulled the rope down to get back to his feet, inadvertently causing Stardust to fall. The cosmic folly allowed Big E to execute The Big Ending and secure the win.Luke Harper def. Jack SwaggerStill reeling from his failure to recapture the Intercontinental Championship from Dolph Ziggler on Raw, Luke Harper aimed to take his frustrations out on a former World Heavyweight Champion – Jack Swagger. As the opening bell sounded, the bout seemed evenly matched as the NCAA All-American held his own with the brutish Harper. However, Harper’s strength and pure power swung the match in his favor. Methodically dismantling The Real American, Harper took out his frustrations until Swagger fought back, nearly making his opponent tap out to The Patriot Lock. Breaking free of the hold, Harper struck back with his signature clothesline and claimed victory.
