We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. Google has released a new Chrome for Android update to fix a zero-day flaw that is currently exploited in the wild. The new update arrives just days after Google fixed two zero-day vulnerabilities in the desktop version of its Chrome browser. Details related to the attack are not yet public as a majority of Chrome for Android users are yet to install the update. Alongside the security fixes that include those rolled out initially for desktop users, the latest Chrome update also includes stability and performance improvements.The latest Chrome for Android update carries version number 86.0.4240.185 that includes fixes for a heap buffer overflow vulnerability, listed as CVE-2020-16010. The issue exists in the user interface (UI) component of the Web browser.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – “Google is aware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2020-16010 exists in the wild,” the company said in a blog post.Google’s Project Zero team reported the highly severe vulnerability on October 31. Further, the Threat Analysis Group (TAG) at Google, responsible for tracking threat actors, has been credited for discovering the zero-day attacks related to Chrome for Android.Details of the bug and its exploit are not yet revealed as the update is currently in its rollout process. However, Google said that the new version would become available for download through Google Play over the next few weeks.- Advertisement – Earlier this week, Google rolled out a security update for its Chrome browser on desktops that patched a zero-day vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2020-16009, that existed in JavaScript engine V8.Prior to the last update, Google patched another zero-day issue affecting its Chrome desktop version last month. That vulnerability, identified as CVE-2020-15999, impacted the FreeType font rendering library of the browser.It is unclear whether the three zero-day bugs discovered in the last one month are exploited by a single threat actor or multiple groups. Having said that, users on both Android and desktop versions of the Chrome browser are recommended to install the latest updates as soon as they are available.- Advertisement –last_img read more

‘Every vote must be counted,’ Biden says—as Republicans try to stop that from happening

first_imgAgain, he was celebrating democracy—and pointing to the legitimacy of his lead by way of a warning to those who hope to overturn the vote, be they official Republican partisans or federal judges (or justices) acting as partisans. “Every vote must be counted,” he emphasized, at a moment when his opponent is trying to prevent exactly that from happening.“We the people will not be silenced. We the people will not be bullied. We the people will not surrender,” Biden concluded. “My friends, I am confident we will emerge victorious. But this will not be my victory alone or our victory alone. It will be a victory for the American people, for our democracy, for America. There will be no blue states and red states when we win. Just the United States of America.” – Advertisement – Unlike Trump, Biden was careful to stick to the facts, saying “I’m not here to declare that we have won. But I’m here to report, when the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners.” He went on to point out that his winning margin in Wisconsin is “virtually the same” as Trump’s 2016 margin in the state, while his current—and presumed to be still growing—lead in Michigan is “substantially bigger” than Trump’s 2016 margin. Biden also said he feels “very good” about Pennsylvania, and cited flips in Arizona and the second district of Nebraska.“Of special significance to me is that we’ve won the majority of the American people and every indication is that that majority will grow,” Biden continued, pointing to a popular vote lead of three million and growing. “Indeed, Sen. Harris and I are on track to win more votes than any ticket in the history of this country.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

Her husband dashed out of the house to share champagne with a neighbor.Ms. Schaaf has sparred with President Trump repeatedly over immigration and Mr. Trump’s characterization of Oakland as wracked with violence. – Advertisement – “To have a White House that was a constant source of battle was exhausting. And to have to battle your own federal government during one of the worst crises this world has ever seen was untenable,” Ms. Schaaf said. “Now we will have allies in the White House — and particularly will have a vice President who grew up on our soil, who grew up with our values, who grew up fighting for the same vision of a just and equitable world.”“It is like a whole new world,” Ms. Schaaf said. “These cities, it’s like living in hell,” Mr. Trump said in June, singling out Oakland and Detroit, among other cities. Ms. Schaaf on Saturday said she was elated to put that behind her.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Vietnam reports another avian flu case

first_imgApr 4, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – A 27-year-old woman in central Vietnam has tested positive for H5N1 avian influenza, according to an Agence France-Presse (AFP) report published today.The woman tested positive yesterday and is hospitalized in stable condition, Nguyen Van Nuoi, a physician at the main hospital in Ha Tinh province, told AFP. She was admitted Mar 29 with a high fever, which has since abated, he said.Unofficially, Vietnam now has had 34 cases of avian flu, 15 of them fatal, in the series that began last December.Nuoi said the patient’s family had raised eight ducks, and she had eaten duck meat, the AFP report said. Test results on the ducks were being awaited.Also today, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Vietnam’s Ministry of Health has officially confirmed the family cluster of five avian flu cases in Haiphong that was first reported in the news media Mar 29. The earlier reports said initial tests were positive for avian flu and that further tests were pending.With the official confirmation, the WHO increased its overall count of human cases since late 2003 to 79; the death toll remained the same at 49. CIDRAP’s unofficial count, based on media and WHO reports, is 81 cases with 50 deaths.The WHO said the infected family includes a father, age 35, mother, 33, and three daughters, 13 years, 10 years, and 4 months. The statement did not list their condition, but a Vietnam News Service (VNS) report on Mar 30 said all five were in stable condition and recovering.Another patient, 5-year-old Hoang Trong Duong of central Vietnam’s Quang Binh province, was discharged from a hospital today, according to the newspaper Thanh Nien News. He had been hospitalized in Hue for 23 days, the story said.Meanwhile, Vietnam today launched a “a nationwide awareness campaign for better sanitation and hygiene” to both combat and monitor avian flu, according to a VNS report. “Concerned ministries and agencies need to monitor poultry business and transport in markets, and set up joint teams to spray disinfectant on poultry this month,” the story said.In the United States, President Bush issued an order Apr 1 allowing authorities to detain or isolate anyone suspected of having avian flu when arriving in the country on an international flight, according to an Apr 1 Reuters report.The order added pandemic influenza to the list of diseases for which quarantine is authorized, the story said. Pandemic flu was defined as a new or re-emergent strain to which the population has little or no immunity.According to the story, White House spokesman Trent Duffy said there was no evidence of any immediate risk of avian flu to the public, but the step was a pragmatic one to give health officials authority to protect the public.See also:Apr 4 WHO updatehttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_04_04/en/CIDRAP avian flu case-count tableshttp://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/avianflu/case-count/avflucount.htmllast_img read more

Top official predicts reduced bird flu impact in US

first_imgApr 12, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The spread of avian flu to the United States probably would not have the same impact it has had in less developed countries, according to the US government’s top infectious-disease official.”The surveillance is going to be so intense that it is very unlikely that there is going to be the type of situation we see everywhere from Nigeria to Indonesia,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), as quoted in an Associated Press (AP) story today.American poultry farmers keep birds isolated, reducing the potential for them to have contact with wild birds, Fauci said. In addition, Americans generally have less contact with poultry or their droppings. Backyard poultry is far less common in the United States than in many of the countries battling avian flu, such as Indonesia.Fauci likened the US poultry system’s security to that in Europe. In Western Europe, H5N1-positive wild birds have been found in multiple countries over several months, but the virus has struck only a couple of poultry farms—one in France and one Germany.In the United States, Fauci told the AP, “It won’t be what you see in countries in which there is no regulation, in which there is no incentive to compensate farmers, in which the people, who are so poor, when they see their chickens are getting infected they immediately sell them or they don’t tell anybody because they don’t want them culled.”American authorities recently unveiled a surveillance plan that includes systematic monitoring of wild birds. They expect to collect 75,000 to 100,000 samples for testing this year, mostly on the West Coast and in Alaska.Fauci also said the avian flu virus is not likely to change very quickly into a form that it can spread quickly from person to person, potentially sparking a pandemic, according to the AP. Acquiring this ability will require a series of genetic changes, which could make the virus less virulent, he said.”It is entirely conceivable that this virus is inherently programmed that it will never be able to go efficiently from human to human,” Fauci was quoted as saying. “Hopefully the epidemic (in birds) will burn itself out, which epidemics do, before the virus evolves the capability of being more efficient in going from human to human.”Nevertheless, Fauci advocated personal preparedness, suggesting that people stock up on canned food and water, as they would for a hurricane or other storm, the AP reported.See also: Mar 20 CIDRAP News story on US surveillance planslast_img read more

Vukovar becomes an open-air gallery

first_imgVukovar – the port of art is a concept that promotes Vukovar as a place that accepts all artists, ie creators of new values.Also, this concept changes the visual identity of the city and makes it a more beautiful place to live, but also in a way that the painted areas are an attraction for more and more tourists who come. With its new content, Vukovar is moving away from the focus of the war and creating a positive story.After last year’s first Vukovar Street Art Festival, which gave Vukovar 3D anamorphic images, the city became the so-called Open Gallery. This year’s motto was “Vukovart goes vertical”, where vertical surfaces in Borovo Naselje were painted, so that the concept of the open-air gallery was completed with five new murals covering almost 700m2.This year’s artists were Marina Capdevila from Spain (assistant Raul), Ricky Lee Gordon from South Africa (assistant David), Vera Bugatti and Fabio Fedele from Italy, Ella & Pitr from France, and two Croatian artists, Chez and Sarma. Each of their works of art carries its own story related to Vukovar.You can find all the artwork at the following linklast_img read more

Tourists pay 100 euros to pick olives and ride in a tractor

first_imgIf someone told you that the Butić family resort is only a few kilometers from Zadar, in the pre-season it hosts over 17.000 guests who also carry a hundred euros to pick olives with the cheerful host Ante, most will say that someone is joking, but that is tourism which we must strive for and tourism that takes place in the family resort Butić.Namely, the family farm Butić picnic area has been working since 2011 on the presentation of local indigenous food, whether it is delicious cheeses, prosciutto that is part of the processing is kept in the Nin Sea or delicious chocolates and meat under the baking lid. The whole family works hard to make the whole story have an authentic story, and most of all they make sure that the guests bring a special story of our region in their mouths and memories.Last year they started with the presentation of the olive picking offer, which had a great response among the guests, so this year they organized the same thing again, driving the guests to the field in a tractor, which was a very funny and interesting experience for most. Or rather an unforgettable experience that they are willing to pay well for. “We have been thinking for a long time how to create additional content that will not require too much investment, and which our guests will gladly accept. Visiting tourism fairs, various conferences, seminars and listening to the profession, we decided to offer olive picking as our trip three years ago. This means that our guests spend 100 euros to spend the day in the olive grove, have lunch outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and olive picking activities. We realized our idea with the help of the oldest agency Globtour-event and offered our guests and our region a new, interesting offer. “ Ante Butić points out and adds that the olive picking trip was recognized by various agencies, and that the reservation for this year  done, and for the next one there are very few terms left. This picture speaks a thousand wordsThis year, they hosted over a dozen groups, and guests have no problem traveling even 2 kilometers to come to Brisevo and stay in the countryside. It is the tourism we must strive for, our authentic story in every sense. In the upcoming holiday season, the Butić family resort organizes Christmas parties with the presentation of gift packages from local producers. “It is not easy for people in the hinterland who are engaged in tourism to attend all workshops or seminars, because often the working day ends very late. Through our work, we need quick information and help to improve our offerings and create a sustainable story whose results will benefit the entire community. We thank the Association for Rural Development Ravni kotari and the LAG in Laura, which is not part of our territory, but we are very happy to refer us to tenders and measures that we can apply. In addition, we gladly follow the work of other TZs in Croatia with which we have excellent cooperation and exchange of experiences, and we praise the work of TZ Benkovac, because such energy and programs should be an integral part of all TZ hinterlands, we are sorry that our home TZ counties often do not recognize the offers of the hinterland and the value of the rural part of the county that offers a lot “, the host Ante Butić told us at the end.Tourists want to experience an authentic way and culture of living, and especially local ecological delicacies, which they can pick up and taste immediately. With homemade wine, brandy and liqueurs and homemade food, it is the best possible tourist product. Who was driving the tractor? Who saw live cows, horses, chickens, geese, donkeys, sheep…?Tourists will pay to be you one day, to do your chores around the garden, feed the animals, and so pick olives, grapes, corn, etc.…Yes, someone will pay you to do your job! It is a story we must tell in rural areas as a major tourist product. Organic and organic food is a rapidly growing trend, as well as the need to experience the noise of silence and the smell of nature has become imperative, especially in major European cities.Picking tomatoes in the garden, slicing homemade prosciutto, drinking homemade wine – this is an experience that tourists are ready and willing to pay for. It is tourism.last_img read more
