German Report Reveals Large Irregular Migration Network in Morocco

By Josh BabbRabat – The briefing detailed one large irregular migration network composed of 20 leaders which intelligence services dubbed the “schleuser lodge.” The report said the network was the main trafficker of migrants along western Mediterranean routes beginning in early 2017. Irregular migration from Morocco to Europe has increased 150 percent since 2014 on average. The networks usually take one of three different crossing routes from Morocco to Spain; through the strait of Gibraltar, through the sea of Alboran in the western Mediterranean, and on the Atlantic from Larache to Cadiz. The smuggling network charges migrants €1,000 for up to three attempted crossings and an additional €2,000 for safe shelter in Spain if they cross successfully. In the event a migrant dies attempting to cross, the network returns the money to their family. Morocco has become a popular destination for sub-Saharan migrants hoping to make it to Europe, due to its proximity to Europe and the fact that many do not need a visa to enter Morocco.In early October a Spanish news outlet reported that Spain had repeatedly expressed Morocco’s concerns regarding irregular migration to the EU in an effort to provide the country with extra resources to curb such attempts and dismantle trafficking networks.In September the Moroccan Navy faced criticism after firing on a go-fast migrant boat attempting to reach Spain, subsequently killing Hayat Belkacem, a 20-year-old Moroccan woman, and wounding three other migrants. Authorities are also cracking down on land, entering neighborhoods populated by migrants and sometimes forcing relocation. “The police in Tangier were brutal. They entered our homes, cracked down on sub-Saharans, and arrested us regardless of whether you are a [legally resident] student or irregular migrant,” one Guinean migrant named Alpha told Morocco World News.Regardless of such measures, it is unclear what, if anything will persuade migrants to stop trying to make the journey north and relinquish their hopes to achieve the “European dream.” read more

Security Council agrees to sixmonth extension of UN Office in Angola

“Council members reiterated their position that the primary responsibility for the continued fighting lies with UNITA,” said the current Council President, Ambassador Richard Ryan of Ireland, referring to the rebel National Union for the Total Independence of Angola. He spoke to the press after closed-door consultations, in which Ibrahim Gambari, UN Under-Secretary-General and Special Advisor on Africa, presented Mr. Annan’s report on the UN Office in Angola (UNOA) and briefed the Council on the latest developments in the country.Ambassador Ryan said Council members called on UNITA “to end its military action and enter into dialogue with the Government of Angola on how to conclude the implementation of the Lusaka Protocol.” According to the President, the 15-member Council welcomed today’s announcement by Mr. Gambari that he would visit Angola in November for consultations with the government, political parties and civil society representatives on how best the UN can help in the search for a negotiated peace in the country. Among the positive signs, Council members noted the initiatives by the Government and the Angolan people, “together with the very important role of civil society and the churches” to promote the peace process in that country. Looking ahead, Ambassador Ryan said the Council intended to schedule an open meeting on Angola in November.Earlier today, the Council received a briefing by the Head of the UN Political Office in Somalia, David Stephens, who introduced a report of the Secretary-General on the latest developments in that country. read more

Settlement reached in a key dispute in Nortel Networks bankruptcy case

TORONTO – A last-minute settlement was reached Thursday in a key dispute in the Nortel Networks Ltd. bankruptcy case — over how much interest should be paid on Nortel’s outstanding bonds, according to documents filed in U.S. court.The settlement, which will see U.S. bond holders collect up to US$1.01 billion in interest payments on outstanding bonds, still needs approval by the court, which will hear the matter in mid-September.Nortel, which filed for bankruptcy protection in 2009, has $4.1-billion in outstanding bonds.The Globe and Mail reported that U.S. bondholders had made written submissions to the court saying that interest should accrue at a contractual rate that would add up to at least $1.6-billion.But Nortel’s Canadian monitor Ernst & Young and other creditors argued that any interest should have been calculated at a much more modest U.S. federal judgment rate, which would have capped payments at around $90-million, the Globe said. That would leave more for other creditors, including pensioners and former employees.The compromise will see bondholders receive $876-million, plus as much as $134-million more if they have not been repaid by the middle of next year, according to the documents.Lisa Schweitzer, a New York-based lawyer involved in the case, had no comment when reached on Friday.The Nortel trial is considered one of the biggest bankruptcy cases in Canadian history. The cost of Nortel’s demise has climbed above US$1 billion over the past five years, with legal expenses eating away at money that could be divided among the various parties.At its height from 1999 to 2000, Nortel was worth nearly $300 billion, employed more than 90,000 people globally and was regarded as one of Canada’s most valuable tech companies.A related matter in the Nortel trial was still scheduled to go ahead in Toronto court on Friday.

Millionaire says wife of five months shouldnt get his £20m fortune because

first_imgMiss Levesque says Mr Hancox has not disclosed detail of his finances.She says evidence shows that he had assets of more than £20 million in 2007 – the same year he had declared himself bankrupt – and operated Swiss bank accounts in company names. A model and a commodities broker who separated five months after spending around £200,000 on their wedding have been fighting over the financial settlement for six times longer than they were together.Marilyn Levesque and Damien Hancox, who are both in their early 30s, lived together as a married couple for just five months but have spent hundreds of thousands of pounds fighting over a £20m fortune she claims he is hiding. Mr Justice Baker, who analysed the latest stage of their dispute at a public appeal hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London, has urged them to try to reach agreement.He was told that Miss Levesque had already spent more than £230,000 on lawyers.Judges have heard that they had enjoyed a “hedonistic” lifestyle after meeting in 2010 and living in a flat in South Kensington, London.They had married in July 2013 – after a ceremony Miss Levesque said cost about £200,000 – before separating in December 2013, and are now divorced.Mr Hancox, who has homes in Ibiza and Verbier, has won the latest round of the fight.A judge had made orders against him at a private family court hearing in London late in 2016.But he mounted an appeal – complaining of unfairness as a result of being forced to take part in the hearing over the telephone from Ibiza because he had pneumonia.Mr Justice Baker analysed his complaints on Thursday and concluded that rival claims should be reconsidered at a fresh hearing.

Pret a Manger has said that full ingredient labelling, including allergens, will appear on products after a teenager died from an allergic reaction to one of the chain’s baguettes.Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, 15, from Fulham, south-west London, collapsed on board a flight in July 2016 after eating an artichoke, olive and tapenade baguette she had bought at a Pret outlet in Heathrow Airport.The coroner at her inquest last week said she died of anaphylaxis after eating the Pret baguette. It contained sesame, to which she was allergic.Natasha’s father Nadim said she died because of “inadequate food labelling laws”, and joined the rest of her family in calling for a change in the law to save lives.Pret has announced that full ingredient labelling will be introduced to all products that are freshly made in its shop kitchens, and labels will list all ingredients, including allergens.

Climat le sommet de Cancun en 10 questions

first_imgClimat : le sommet de Cancun en 10 questionsLes délégués de 192 pays se retrouvent en ce moment à la station balnéaire de Cancun, au Mexique, un an après l’échec de Copenhague. Réunis jusqu’au 10 décembre, ils vont tenter de faire avancer la lutte contre le changement climatique, malgré les divergences de vue entre Etats riches et pays en voie de développement. Mais qu’implique, dans les faits, cette conférence de Cancun ? Le sommet en 10 questions.- Qui participe au sommet de Cancun ?15.000 négociateurs, écologistes, hommes d’affaires et journalistes participent à cette 16e conférence des Nations unies sur le changement climatique, prévue pour durer jusqu’au 10 décembre. Les délégués de près de 200 pays sont présents. Cette conférence doit s’achever par une réunion de trois jours des ministres de l’Environnement. En revanche, aucun chef d’Etat, cette fois, ne fera le déplacement.Des scientifiques doivent d’abord présenter les dernières informations disponibles sur le réchauffement de la planète, d’après Reuters. Et les météorologues ne manqueront pas de rappeler que 2010 a été l’année la plus chaude jamais enregistrée en 131 ans de statistiques sur le climat.- Quelles avancées sont attendues ?L’ambition affichée pour ces deux semaines de conférence est de parvenir à des accords dans le dossier de l’aide financière aux pays pauvres.La création d’un “Fonds vert”, par exemple, promis à Copenhague par les pays développés pour aider les pays pauvres qui pâtissent des changements climatiques. Après l’échec de ce sommet, l’an dernier, les délégués espèrent une relance du processus de négociation.D’ici 2012, 30 milliards de dollars doivent être mis de côté, et 100 milliards par an d’ici 2020, pour aider ces pays à lutter contre les effets du réchauffement et à développer des technologies plus propres. A Cancun, une clarification sur ce financement devrait être apportée, pour permettre “de créer la confiance dans le processus de financement global”, selon Robert Orr, secrétaire général adjoint de l’Onu, qui s’est exprimé devant la presse à New York.La lutte contre la déforestation fait également partie des dossiers majeurs du sommet. Elle est responsable de 20% des émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Un programme de réduction des émissions dues à la déforestation et à la dégradation des fôrets (REDD) doit pouvoir offrir des compensations financières aux pays qui font des efforts pour préserver leurs arbres. Proposé par un rapport de Jacques Le Guen, député UMP, un Fonds mondial de reboisement et d’adaptation au changement climatique (FRAC) sera défendu par la France.La question de la vérification des émissions de gaz à effet de serre devrait également être abordée, tous les pays devant arriver tôt ou tard à un système harmonisé qui permettrait de quantifier leurs émissions. Des émissions qui doivent ensuite être déclarées.- Quelle est la position de la France et de l’Europe ?Du côté de l’Union européenne, la délégation défendra les mêmes objectifs qu’elle avait formulés à Copenhague l’an dernier, à savoir 20% de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre en 2020 par rapport au niveau de 1990, avec la possibilité de descendre à 30% si les autres pays s’engagent aussi à faire un effort. En revanche, la position de la France, représentée par l’ambassadeur Brice Lalonde, n’est pas encore clairement définie. Elle devrait suivre le mouvement européen. La nouvelle ministre de l’Ecologie, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet sera présente à ses côtés.- Quelle est la position des écologistes et des ONG ?Ils refusent que le sommet connaisse le même échec que celui de Copenhague et restent mobilisés pendant ces négociations sur le climat. Si aucune manifestation n’est prévue comme ce fut le cas en 2009, des contre-sommets doivent s’organiser.Selon, en France, c’est le village de Cancon, dans le Lot-et-Garonne, qui accueillera le 4 décembre un rassemblement citoyen massif, visant à mettre en valeur les actions menées au niveau local pour lutter contre le changement climatique. La secrétaire nationale d’Europe Ecologie-Les Verts, Cécile Duflot, compte s’y rendre samedi.La question des promesses d’aide financière est aussi soulevée par les écologistes. Selon un rapport publié par Oxfam et le Réseau action climat France, les promesses faites à Copenhague ne sont pas au rendez-vous. “La France se contente de recycler une partie de son aide publique au développement pour tenir cet engagement. De plus, le recours quasi systématique aux prêts risque de laisser de côté les populations les plus vulnérables”, estiment les ONG. Un constat que fait également Eva Joly, députée européenne : “Les 420 millions d’euros que la France devait verser ont été prélevés sur l’aide au développement, pour laquelle l’objectif d’atteindre 0,51% du PIB n’est même pas atteint”.- Est-ce qu’il pourrait y avoir un véritable accord cette fois ?Aucun accord global de réductions contraignantes des émissions de gaz à effet de serre n’est attendu. Il n’y aura donc pas, à l’issue du sommet de Cancun, d’accord assez solide concernant la lutte contre les changements climatiques qui puisse succéder au protocole de Kyoto, dont la date d’expiration approche (2012).Le pessimisme était déjà au rendez-vous avant que le sommet ne s’ouvre à Cancun. Un fatalisme qui renvoie à la déception en réaction aux conclusions de la conférence de Copenhague, l’an dernier. Le meilleur espoir reste encore le sommet qui se tiendra l’année prochaine à Durban, en Afrique du Sud.Le président américain Barack Obama est également montré du doigt. Si celui-ci se prononce en faveur d’un accord ambitieux, il a beaucoup moins de pouvoirs que l’année dernière. Sa législation sur le climat, vantée depuis le début, qui visait à réduire en 2020 les émissions de gaz à effet de serre de 17% par rapport aux niveaux de 2005, n’est plus. Et cela, depuis qu’il est contraint de composer avec les républicains suite aux élections de mi-mandat de novembre.Sans des engagements fermes de la part des Etats-Unis, la Chine ainsi que d’autres nations risquent de rester passives.De plus, la crise économique semble avoir balayé l’enthousiasme de l’Union européenne.- Qu’est-ce qui bloque ?La Chine et Etats-Unis se livrent à un véritable bras de fer, qui ne date pas d’hier.Les deux plus gros pollueurs de la planète, responsables de 50% des émissions de gaz à effet de serre, continuent à se renvoyer la balle.D’une part, Washington souhaite que Pékin contrôle ses émissions de carbone, d’autre part, la Chine dénonce l’inaction des Etats-Unis et aimerait qu’on laisse les pays en développement poursuivre leur croissance.”Je suis un peu déprimé au sujet de Cancun”, confiait à Reuters ces derniers jours l’ancien vice-président américain Al Gore, qui se voue aujourd’hui à la cause écologiste. “Le problème ne s’éloigne pas, il a plutôt tendance à s’aggraver”.De plus, les chefs d’Etat ne feront pas le déplacement pour ce sommet, alors qu’ils avaient pris part aux négociations passées, comme à Copenhague. Ce sont les ministres de l’Environnement de chaque pays qui viendront défendre leur point de vue et tenter de s’accorder sur les mesures à prendre pour lutter contre le réchauffement climatique.- Quelle pourrait-être l’issue du sommet de Cancun ?Il y aura probablement des avancées en faveur de plusieurs accords. Un “paquet de décisions” qui inclurait l’aide aux pays pauvres permettant leur adaptation au réchauffement climatique. Rien de très concret. À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?- Que se passerait-il si ce sommet était un échec ?Personne ne déclarerait l’échec jusqu’au prochain sommet qui doit se tenir à Durban l’année prochaine. Mais si rien ne se passe comme prévu, plusieurs pays s’engageront simplement auprès des Nations unies concernant leurs émissions de gaz à effet de serre : l’Europe a promis de les réduire de 20% d’ici 2020, par exemple. Mais le Programme des Nations unies pour l’environnement (PNUE) a indiqué récemment que ces engagements n’étaient pas suffisants au regard du réchauffement climatique.Pour limiter ce réchauffement de 2°C, il faudrait réduire globalement les émissions de gaz à effet de serre de 25% à 40% d’ici 2020 par rapport à 1990, selon les scientifiques.Un dernier espoir reposerait alors dans la géo-ingénierie, manipulation du climat terrestre pour contrecarrer les effets du réchauffement climatique. Si cette option doit encore être étudiée par les scientifiques, qui craignent ses effets sur le long terme, elle pourrait faire office d’ultime solution contre le changement climatique.- Est-ce que la crise économique ne nous aurait pas fait gagner du temps ?Vraisemblablement pas, selon NewScientist. Les émissions de gaz à effet de serre étaient sensiblement moins importantes cette année à cause de la crise dans les pays occidentaux, mais elles étaient quand même très importantes. Sans oublier que les pays en développement émettent de plus en plus ces gaz. Par exemple, les émissions de dioxyde de carbone de la Chine ont augmenté de 8%.L’effet le plus important de la récession a été le ralentissement des investissements dans les énergies vertes, dont nous avons pourtant besoin.- Quel est donc l’ “état” du climat à l’heure actuelle ?Mauvais, selon les scientifiques. Il faudrait pouvoir réussir à atteindre l’objectif de 44 gigatonnes de CO2 dans l’atmosphère en 2020, pour éviter que les températures ne s’élèvent de 2°C. A l’heure actuelle, avec les objectifs les plus ambitieux, on pourrait arriver à 49 gigatonnes de CO2 seulement. Ce n’est pas encore suffisant. Si aucune solution n’est trouvée, les effets de ce réchauffement climatique seront difficiles à prévoir et à maîtriser.Le 30 novembre 2010 à 13:09 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Jamaicans Urged To Follow Guidelines In Voting Process

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Feb. 18 (JIS): With the General Election slated for February 25, Jamaicans are being encouraged to follow the necessary guidelines, to ensure that the voting process proceed as smoothly as possible.In an interview with JIS News, Public Education Officer at the Electoral Commission of Jamaica, Daynia Harper, said before the Election Day, persons should find out where they are to vote.“We encourage you to visit our website at and click on query voters’ list. It will ask you for your name and date of birth and after that we will prompt you about where you are to vote,” Ms. Harper said.She is also reminding voters to take along their voter identification card to the polling stations.“The voter’s ID card is the only identification card that is accepted on that day. However, if you do not have that card, you may still vote, but it will take a longer time for you to be able to cast your ballot,” she added.On arrival at the polling station, Jamaicans are being encouraged to join the line and wait until it is their turn to vote.Importantly, the use or display of cameras, cellular phones or any other image-capturing device is banned inside the polling station, and persons are being urged to turn off their cellular phones inside the polling stations.“Another thing you need to do when you get to the polling station, is to turn off and put away your cell phones. Do not attempt to use or display your cell phones or cameras or any kind of video recorders in the polling station,” Ms. Harper warned.If individuals attempt to use their cell phone or any smart device to do a recording, he or she will be asked to leave the polling station and will lose their chance to vote. In addition, voters must follow the instructions of the Presiding Officer in order for their ballot to be successfully marked and cast.“The Presiding Officer will show you how to fold your ballot and you will go behind the screen. You will mark your ballot with an ‘X’ for the candidate you wish to vote for and then you will refold your ballot in the exact way that the Presiding Officer has shown you. You will return with the ballot and you will dip your finger in the ink and watch as the Presiding Officer puts your ballot into the ballot box,” Ms. Harper said.Meanwhile, voters are encouraged not to try and influence any other voter to vote for a particular candidate. “If you show anyone your ballot, it will be taken from you by the Presiding Officer and marked as spoilt. You will, however, be given another chance to vote. But we encourage you – do not show anyone your ballot,” the Public Education Officer emphasised. Workers desirous of casting their ballots on Election Day are allotted time off from work to do so under the Representation of the People (Leave and Symbols) Regulations, 1944.They are allowed three hours, in addition to the normal meal hour, for voting purposes on a national and local election day.For more information about the voting process, persons may contact the Electoral Commission by calling toll free: 1-888-991-8683 or visit their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter @ecjamaica.

Can states really protect kids from recreational marijuana

first_img WASHINGTON — When the U.S. Justice Department promised not to prosecute illegal marijuana sales planned to begin in Washington state and Colorado next year, its top lawyers demanded that the states reciprocate with a pledge to keep the drug away from minors.Officials in those pioneering pot states, where recreational use of marijuana was approved by voters in November, say they’re ready to comply.But to legalization opponents, such promises are a pipe dream, destined to fail. They say it’s more likely the U.S. will unleash a new industry that will try hard to attract young users and turn them into “addicts.”“Kids are going to be bombarded with this — they’re already getting the message that it’s acceptable,” said Kevin Sabet, a legalization opponent and director of the University of Florida Drug Policy Institute, who served as an adviser on drug issues to three presidents.With polls showing support for legalizing marijuana on the rise, questions about how it would affect children remain.The debate has intensified as momentum for legalization builds and as research shows increased marijuana use among youngsters. More teens are now smoking pot than tobacco, believing that it is safer.Legalization backers say they’re just as eager to protect kids as opponents. And they say the public has no reason to worry if the drug is sold openly in stores instead of on the streets. Teenagers more likely to have used marijuana recently than tobacco.

Future plc App Sales Pass 8 Million

first_imgIn its interim statement for its fiscal year ending September 30, Future plc is reporting continued growth in its app business. In the last year, since Apple launched Newsstand, the company has generated about $8 million in app sales, which is up from $5 million at its fiscal half-year.In July 2011, the company announced it was moving to a “primarily digital business,” and midway through its fiscal 2012, Future said digital advertising accounted for 44 percent of revenue—$15 million at the half, with a third of that in app sales. The company’s websites are reporting traffic gains as well, with visits up 50 percent, totaling 45 million uniques per month. Also encouraging for the company is improved performance of its struggling U.S. division. “In the U.S. we continue to make strong progress and are close to returning to profitability,” says the company in its interim statement.

Day one of AFN sees rousing speeches on fiscal crisis and Strength

first_imgSgt. Jody Potts delivers her keynote address to the AFN convention. (Photo by Zachariah Hughes, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)On the first full day of the AFN convention, delegates heard an impassioned speech from Lieutenant Governor Byron Mallott focused on the state’s fiscal situation.Listen nowMallott was unsparing in his criticism of state lawmakers who have failed to pass a comprehensive fiscal solution to Alaska’s massive revenues gap, instead paying for dwindling government services by drawing on billions from savings.“We hear people say ‘no new taxes, no new taxes until somehow the government has right-sized itself,’” Mallott said. “We’re ready to do that, but let’s have a conversation, let’s not use it as an excuse to do nothing, to spend down $14 billion.”Mallott dismissed arguments that per-capita spending on services for Alaskans is higher than throughout the Lower 48, saying it is a flawed comparison given the state’s uniquely rural demographics. He rattled off essential services throughout Alaska that have declined to the point of failing many rural residents and indigenous communities, particularly education, infrastructure and criminal justice.“We do not have the public safety services that we need,” Mallott said. “In rural Alaska, to have a young person be murdered and lay in a rock quarry covered by a tarp for four days because police could not get there in order to begin the process of trying to bring a perpetrator to justice… where is the bloated budget for that?”The speech didn’t place explicit blame on either political party or legislative chamber, but set a severe tone just as lawmakers are heading to Juneau next week for a fourth special session that will deal in part with the fiscal situation. Both Mallott and Governor Bill Walker received a warm response from the crowd of delegates.The day’s other powerful speech came from the keynote– Sergeant Jody Potts, Director of Public Safety for the Tanana Chiefs Conference. Dressed in full Gwich’in regalia, Potts recounted growing up in a modest dirt-floor hunting cabin in Eagle — and how pieces of that traditional lifestyle helped her heal after a family tragedy this year.“In March my children lost their father to suicide. And in the first several months it was very hard, as you can imagine, getting through the fog of that grief,” Potts said.Potts took months off work, spending time with her kids, hunting and visiting family. She gestured towards the convention’s theme on an overhead banner – “Strength in Unity”—and said that idea was an essential part of how she began to gradually enjoy life again.“The greatest strength that we found was when we came together, me and my three children. We found strength in unity,” Potts said. “And I see that among our people. Everything we’ve gone through, we really have strength in unity, we have a joint story that needs to be told.”Tara Sweeney, who was recently nominated for an assistant secretary position in the Interior Department. (Photo by Zachariah Hughes, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)The convention saw a recorded statement from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who’d had to scrap a planned live video address in order to attend a funeral. Zinke said Alaska Natives have been fortunate under the Trump Administration’s efforts to streamline regulations, advocate for veterans and protect the right to sell walrus ivory. He also said Alaska has scored “major victories” on the personnel side. AFN President Julie Kitka said the recent appointment of an Alaskan to a high-level position in the Interior department is evidence the Trump Administration has an interest in working with the Alaska Native community.“One of the first significant outcome(s) of our work with the new Trump Administration has been the nomination of Tara Sweeney to the high office of Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs,” Zinke said.Sweeney is the first Alaska Native woman to be put up for the position, and will go before the senate in order to be confirmed.Ana Hoffman of the Yukon-Kuskokwim region was re-elected as an AFN co-chair, running for the two-year position unopposed.Television coverage of both the AFN convention, as well as the Quyana cultural festivities, is on 360 North and ARCS through Saturday.last_img read more

Wipro settles 6year old US SEC probe with 5 million fine

first_imgWipro, India’s third-largest IT software services exporter, on Friday informed the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) that it will be paying $5 million to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to settle a six-year-old investigation. The Wipro stock was trading flat at Rs 457 at around 12.45 pm.In a regulatory filing, the company said that the probe pertained to a case of embezzlement about which it had made adequate disclosures in its financial statements in the financial year 2009-10.”Under the terms of settlement, the company consents to pay a civil money penalty of $5 million, to cease and desist from committing or causing violations of the Exchange Act and to undertake certain follow-through actions,” Wipro said in its filing to the BSE.The investigation by the US capital markets regulator was launched in 2010, after Wipro detected and reported a case of embezzlement by one of its employees in December 2009 that was estimated at about $4 million. “The company was able to substantially recover the embezzled funds,” it said.Wipro added that the settlement with the regulator was in the best interests of its investors “to avoid the costs associated with a prolonged litigation.”The company will be declaring its third quarter results on January 25, 2017.In related news, Wipro had announced acquisition of Appirio, a global cloud services company for $500 million in October this year. The 10-year-old company is headquartered in Indianapolis and had with offices in San Francisco, Dublin, London, Jaipur, and Tokyo with an strength of 1250 employees worldwide. “Appirio and Wipro are coming together to unlock transformational synergies in the applications space and help enterprises create new business models,” Abidali Z.

How to Identify 5 Common Phishing Attacks

first_img Register Now » 4 min read November 3, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Phishing attacks are emails or malicious websites (among other channels) that solicit personal information from an individual or company by posing as a trustworthy organization or entity. The goal of a phishing is to trick the recipient into taking the attacker’s desired action, such as providing login credentials or entering identifying information into a fraudulent website. These websites may contain malicious code that executes on the user’s local machine when a link is clicked from a phishing email to open the website.Entrepreneurs and small businesses can be especially vulnerable to these types of threats, as many of these organizations lack the full-featured network and data security processes and protocols that large organizations employ. Vigilance will help prevent  an individual or organization from falling victim to a phishing attack that puts sensitive personal and corporate data at risk.Related: The Phishing Expedition You Want to Avoid This Summer5 types of phishing attacks.Phishing attempts most often take the form of an email that seemingly comes from a company the recipient knows or does business with. lists some widespread phishing scams reported from agencies and corporations, revealing that phishing emails can take many forms. Five of the most popular forms of phishing attacks are:Emails from people claiming to be stranded in a foreign country, asking you to wire money so that they can travel home.Emails claiming to be from reputable news organizations capitalizing on trending news. These emails generally ask recipients to click a link to read the full story, which in turn leads the user to a malicious website.Emails claiming to be from organizations like the FTC and FDIC, referencing complaints filed or asking recipients to check their bank deposit insurance coverage.Emails threatening to harm recipients unless sums in the thousands of dollars are paid.Emails claiming to be a confirmation of complaints filed by the recipient. Not having logged any complaints, recipients are inclined to click on these links to find out what is being referenced. The links and attachments contain malicious code.Phishing emails can take other forms, but all types make it difficult for recipients to filter out phishing emails from legitimate messages.Related: IBM Uncovers New, Sophisticated Cyber Scam Targeting BusinessesHow to identify phishing attacks.Phishing is most often initiated through email communications, but there are ways to distinguish suspicious emails from legitimate messages. Training yourself and employees on how to recognize these malicious emails is a must for companies to prevent sensitive data loss. Often, these data leaks occur because employees were not armed with the knowledge they need to help protect critical company data. The following may be indicators that an email is a phishing attempt rather than an authentic communication from the company it appears to be:Emails with generic greetings. Phishing emails often include generic greetings, such as “Hello Bank Customer” rather than using the recipient’s actual name.Emails requesting personal information. Legitimate companies never ask customers to enter login credentials or other private information by clicking on a link to a website. This is a safety measure to protect consumers and help customers distinguish fraudulent emails from legitimate ones.Emails requesting an urgent response. Most phishing emails attempt to create a sense of urgency, leading recipients to fear that their account is in jeopardy or they will lose access to important information if they don’t act immediately.Emails with spoofed links. Does a hyperlink in the message body actually lead to the page it claims? Never click on these links to find out; instead, hover over the link to verify its authenticity. Also, look for URLs beginning with HTTPS. The “S” indicates that a website uses encryption to protect users’ page requests, and that it’s from an authorized certificate authority.When in doubt, call. If the content of an email is raises concerns, call the company in question to find out if the email was sent legitimately. If not, the company is now aware and can take action to warn other customers and users of potential phishing attempts appearing to come from their organization.Related: 8 Simple Ways to Minimize Online Risk Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

The coach though admitted there are about five o

first_imgThe coach, though, admitted there are about five or six plays that would have to be removed from the game plan if Ellington is unable to go because no one else on the team can do them.“Other than that, just keep on rolling.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Ellington said he hurt the knee when he turned to make a cut toward the end of Thursday’s practice, but noted he feels better Friday than he did the day before.“I’m good to go,” he said. Granted, that kind of goes against what Arians said, but Ellington is banking on the next couple of days giving him enough time to heal.“That’s a lot of rest, two days,” he said. “I’m going to continue to rehab and get to Sunday and kind of get out there and run around a little bit.”A sixth-round pick out of Clemson last April, Ellington has emerged as one of the team’s most dynamic playmakers. A running back, he has gained 441 yards on just 73 carries and caught 28 passes for 247 yards. He’s scored three total touchdowns.Should Ellington miss the game, Rashard Mendenhall and Stepfan Taylor would figure to pick up the slack, with Alfonso Smith also being in the mix for some additional work. “Just one guy out,” Arians said of the blow that would be not having Ellington. “There’s still a bunch of guys who are capable of taking his place, and we’ll make our adjustments that we need to make.” Comments   Share   TEMPE, Ariz. — It came as a bit of a shock when Andre Ellington’s name appeared on Thursday’s injury report for the Arizona Cardinals.Coach Bruce Arians said the rookie “tweaked” his left knee near the end of practice Thursday and is a “game-time decision” after missing practice Friday. Arians said Ellington’s injury isn’t serious, but “we want to be careful with him.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
