TCI Premier blasts Opposition side for “slop” information, sets it straight in HOA Related Items:crime rate, sharlene cartwright-robinson, unemployment, washington missick Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 23 Oct 2015 – Opposition Leader Sharlene Robinson has posed the question to government based on comments from the Minister of Finance, Washington Misick which points to a surge in unemployment for the Turks and Caicos Islands. Robinson in a media release links a higher crime rate to a higher unemployment rate. “A few months ago when I raised this matter, the Minister of Finance said that unemployment was decreasing as crime was down and this he said was an indicator that employment was on the increase.”Robinson remarked on the huge turn out to a recent InterCaribbean Airways job fair: “In that group of job seekers were largely unemployed persons with only a few looking to change jobs. We are even more concerned by the fact that featuring high among these job seekers were school leavers and young mothers.” The PDM this week called the PNP Administration ‘uncaring’ as the Opposition Party urged the Government to take job creation more seriously.

Banerjee directed the MP to give another Rs 25 lakh for its repair work for which former MP Sultan Ahmed had spent Rs 10 lakh. She also directed to expedite work as there was no proper progress during the past two months due to the Panchayat polls. “I have repeatedly said that development works shouldn’t get hampered due to elections,” she maintained.

They run a school in Barrackpore Cantonment. The school was established in 1836. It is an English medium school and famous all over the country. Army personnel put the school under lock and key. I have spoken to the Chief Secretary in this connection and asked him to take up the matter with the Army.” Raising a question regarding the fate of the students, the Chief Minister said: “They have locked the school after they saw a church inside. The school is the pride of our state and moreover, a case is going on in this connection. Then how come they lock the school and offer Rs 2 lakh to vacate the place.”She further said: “We respect the Army. But in this case, if needed we will compensate them with two cottahs land from the state government’s land bank. But we will not allow the century-old school to get wind up.”The Chief Minister attacked the Centre saying that they are also closing Bengal Chemicals and have closed the profit-making Burn Standard Company in Howrah, which was taken over by her when she was the Railways Minister. “We shouldn’t forget that there are plans to deprive Bengal in one way or the other, so we have to overcome such situations tactfully.” She also added that there would be no other alternative apart from organising mass movements if a work is not carried out by the Centre even after repeated requests. In connection with a project of the Railways, she said her government is against the eviction of people at gunpoint and would not go for it to execute any project.She also enquired about the areas in the district which are “sensitive” in terms of law and order problem. She directed the police to maintain strict vigil and also to carry out coordination with the Government Railway Police as major junctions are the transit points to bring in “illegal firearms and money”.After taking stock of the law and order situation in different parts of the district, Banerjee also directed senior officials to ensure setting up of police stations at Dhulagarh, Chandrapur and Amta. A police outpost will also be constructed near Ghoraberia from where people can enter Howrah from adjoining districts. Moreover, the post of Officer-in-Charge of Sankrail police station will be upgraded to Inspector-in-Charge.

Citation: Ex-Yahoo paying $35M to settle SEC charges over 2014 hack (Update) (2018, April 24) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-04-ex-yahoo-35m-sec-hack.html The Securities and Exchange Commission announced the action Tuesday against the company, which is now called Altaba after its email and other digital services were sold to Verizon Communications for $4.48 billion last year. Yahoo, which is no longer publicly traded, neither admitted nor denied the allegations but did agree to refrain from further violations of securities laws.Personal data was stolen from hundreds of millions of Yahoo users in the December 2014 breach attributed to Russian hackers. The SEC alleged that, although Yahoo senior managers and attorneys were told about the breach, the company failed to fully investigate. The breach wasn’t disclosed to the investing public until more than two years later, when Yahoo was working on closing Verizon’s acquisition of its operating business in 2016, the SEC said.”Yahoo’s failure to have controls and procedures in place to assess its cyber disclosure obligations ended up leaving its investors totally in the dark about a massive data breach,” Jina Choi, director of the SEC’s San Francisco regional office, said in a statement.Altaba spokesman Mike Pascale said the New York company declined to comment on the SEC settlement.Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., who urged the SEC in September 2016 to investigate whether Yahoo met its obligation to inform the public, said Tuesday that the company’s failure to do so “didn’t pass the smell test.””Holding the company accountable is important, and I hope others will learn you can’t sweep this kind of thing under the rug,” Warner, a member of the Senate Banking Committee, said in a tweet.Sunnyvale, California-based Yahoo eventually acknowledged that the 2014 hacking attack and a separate one in 2013 brought affected all 3 billion accounts on its service.Yahoo ended up having to give Verizon a $350 million discount on their deal, reflecting concerns that people might reduce their use of Yahoo email and other digital services because of the breach, decreasing opportunities to show ads.In scooping up Yahoo’s digital services, Verizon’s strategy was to meld the operations with its AOL division with an eye to becoming a bigger player in the growing market for digital ads.Yahoo’s most valuable parts—investments in China’s e-commerce leader Alibaba, and in Yahoo Japan—were left in Altaba. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, a former Google executive who led Yahoo for nearly five years, did not join Verizon and was out of a job.Meanwhile, prosecutors said Tuesday that two Russian intelligence agents, Dmitry Dokuchaev and Igor Sushchin, used information they stole from Yahoo to spy on Russian journalists, U.S. and Russian government officials and employees of financial services and other private businesses.The statements came as a U.S. judge in San Francisco pushed back a sentencing hearing for a 23-year-old Canadian man, Karim Baratov, who prosecutors say was hired by Dokuchaev to breach at least 80 email accounts obtained from the massive Yahoo hack.Judge Vince Chhabria questioned whether the sentence of seven years and 10 months that prosecutors were seeking for Baratov was longer than what other hackers had received for similar crimes.Baratov’s attorneys have called for a sentence of three years and nine months.Chhabria stressed that Baratov was not behind the Yahoo hack. He rescheduled the sentencing hearing for May 29.Authorities have described Baratov as an “international hacker-for-hire” who hacked more than 11,000 webmail accounts from around 2010 until his March 2017 arrest and used the money he made—roughly $1.1 million at about $100 per hacking victim—to finance a $650,000 home and fancy cars, including a Lamborghini and Aston Martin.
