first_img23 March 2015The government is urging South Africans to use Human Rights month as a vehicle to foster social cohesion, nation building, national identity socioeconomic developement – as well as an end to xenophobia and homophobia, Justice and Correctional Minister Michael Masutha said at an official event held to commemorate Human Rights Day in Uitenhage on Saturday.Masutha urged communities to stop looting shops owned by foreign nationals: “We need to root out the new habit of looting shops owned by immigrants. These shops render services to the very communities that end up looting and destorying them.”He encouraged people to report complaints about illegal activities in immigrant communities to their councillors or to the police. “Don’t vent out your grievances by looting shops and destorying property,” Masutha said.Addressing the crowd at Rosedale Field in Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape, Masutha paid tribute to those who died in massacre that took place there 30 years ago.On 21 March 1985, 28 people were shot dead by police in Langa, a township on the outskirts of Uitenhage. The demonstrators had gathered to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Sharpeville massacre.Mashuta said 21 March was now a day to reaffirm the rights of all the people of South Africa. This year’s theme is “Celebrating the Freedom Charter, enjoying Equal Human Rights for All”.“We should go back to the tradition of caring for each other’s children and young people. We should go back to the traditon of caring for each other’s aged grannies,” the minister said.SAnews.gov.za and SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

first_imgMichael Vedomske Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Tags:#Ingenu#Internet of Things#IoT#LPWA#LPWAN#RPMA Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts center_img Cold chains are the hidden lifeline of much of the modern world. A cold chain is the sequence of cooled storage and refrigerated transport which keep produce fresh, vaccines viable, and families fed. This often requires very precise controls. For vaccines, a sensitive product, the cold chain is carefully crafted to maintain temperatures typically between two and eight degrees Celsius. Such a tight temperature range mandates a stringent process and the necessarily tight-knit infrastructure to support it.The consequences for insufficient infrastructure and inadequate processes are severe. For example, India loses nearly 40% of its produce as a result of poor cold chain infrastructure. In developing countries, where refrigerated trucking often isn’t available, keeping vaccines viable those last few miles to the people who need it is a grave challenge.Fresh produce and meats require more than just refrigerated air on their long journey to our plates. Many products need specific levels of CO2, O2, humidity, and other factors in order to ensure they arrive in a condition that consumers will still purchase and enjoy. Each of these details has to be measured and maintained, logged and assessed. This is, in reality, already the Internet of Things in action. So what new innovations can the emergent IoT offer?One of the most impactful new developments is a category of wireless technology called low-power, wide-area (LPWA) technology. The basic premise is in the name: it’s wide-area wireless connectivity (like a cellular network, it’s “just there”) that offers low power consumption and thus longer battery life. One of the available LPWA technologies, RPMA, is uniquely positioned as it solves both the global availability problem and the sunsetting problem.Michael Vedomske, PhD, Principal Data Scientist at IngenuThis first complexity is solved by utilizing the 2.4 GHz universal band, which is available for use in every country in the world. Using a single radio across a global fleet means there is no more need to coordinate and check whether certain fleet assets will be able to operate in a given region. arises as working in a new country may require an entirely new wireless module. Sunsetting, in the wireless world, is when a technology becomes obsolete and is no longer available for use. A present example of this is 2G data technology sunsetting at the end of this year at AT&T and by end of 2019 for Verizon. Other carriers are following suit globally. The issue for the cold chain is that each time a sunset occurs many costs propagate throughout the chain.The sunsetting kink is solved by the fact that RPMA always maintains backward compatibility. Because machine and sensor and other IoT traffic is its sole reason for existing, it will not and cannot fall prey to the competing network demands from voice and high throughput data. RPMA simplifies operations and management not just today but forward through time, as there are no sunsets.Only pay for the right truck rollsTruck rolls are literally an essential part of logistics. Ironically, they can also be a source of needless expenses. These expenses come when equipment fails, or otherwise need attention from a maintenance crew or repair company. Included in these costs are the sensors and wireless connectivity keeping the information flowing, as well as the batteries used to keep it all running.Any cold chain vendor understands that hardware costs are only a small part of the total cost of ownership for any system. Each time work has to be done on the equipment—hardware swaps, battery replacement, repairs—it requires maintenance, a truck roll, and paying for that labor intensive work easily outweighs the cost of the hardware itself. One of the most common and incessant maintenance items is swapping or charging the battery. LPWA connectivity trades lower throughput in order to achieve longer battery life, some as long as twenty years. This is good for logistics, and the cold chain specifically, as longer battery life reduces the number of times human labor is needed to retrieve the sensor and replace or recharge the battery. Each reduction in battery swaps propagated across an entire fleet adds up to very significant savings. Furthermore, this removes steps from the overall process improving efficiency: another kink smoothed out by the Internet of Things.Get the best for less without the messMany vendors utilize passive data loggers in order to keep costs down. But because of the extreme increases in battery life and reduced module costs offered by LPWA technologies, these savings can be pushed into other investments, like purchasing more active loggers. But perhaps even better than just having more active loggers is the fact that you get the benefits of a professionally managed wide-area network. Outfitted with a wide area solution, you can read the data from wherever you want. The data is sent over the air, just like a cellular network, and into your back office solution. Whether your back office is in Minneapolis or Macau, you can get updates wherever your shipments are. But perhaps one of the biggest bonuses a wide-area solution provides is the professionally managed network. The wireless system is managed by a company that specializes in wireless technology. Their existence is purely around making sure it works and does so reliably. This means your company can focus more on what it is good at. No late night hassle trying to fix the wireless infrastructure. No growing support teams. No managing, operating, maintaining, and conducting emergency repairs of wireless infrastructure. Rather, with a wide-area solution you just get wireless that works, for less, and for longer. That’s the beauty of LPWA.

first_imgRanbir Kapoor’s character in Barfi doesn’t have a single dialogue. The trailer of the film, keeping his deaf and mute character in mind, relies completely on the background score to highlight Ranbir’s performance.Ranbir, who sports a thin, golden braid in Barfi, had a blast with the two leading ladies of the film – Priyanka Chopra and southern siren Illeana D’Cruz at the unveiling of the film’s first look by director Anurag Basu in Mumbai on Monday.The trailer of the film was simultaneously released on YouTube, and has received more than 1,66,000 hits within no time while Ranbir’s deaf and mute act in the film was appreciated so much that he was trending on Twitter.The 2.27-minute long fast-paced trailer on YouTube has no dialogues and shows Ranbir clowning around. He has shown great chemistry with newcomer Illeana, who is his romantic lead in the film. Priyanka, who plays a mentally challenged girl, sports short, curly hair and dowdy outfits in the film. She has gone completely de-glamorous to get into the skin of the character.Ranbir has drawn inspiration from “Charlie Chaplin and Mr Bean” for his character, where he has to convey everything through his actions and emotions. His fans have also been gushing about his braid.Illeana, a Goa-based model who has worked in several hit southern films such as Pokiri, Devdasu and Kedi, plays a Bengali girl in the film.Netizens have gone gaga over Ranbir-Illeana’s chemistry in the trailer, which doesn’t have much of Priyanka.advertisementAt the launch, Ranbir clowned around with his co-actors, putting to rest speculations that he and Priyanka shared cold vibes. Rumours were rife that the actors had a misunderstanding on the sets of their previous film Anjana Anjani in 2010.”Illeana has the maximum dialogues in the film. Since Ranbir’s character is that of a mute boy, he emotes through actions while Priyanka too has to rely on her facial expressions in the film,” director Anurag Basu said, explaining his forthcoming dark comic thriller. Basu, who has previously made films such as Life?in a Metro and Gangster, had scored a dud with his last film, the Hrithik Roshanstarrer Kites.Meanwhile, Ranbir’s fans have already declared the film a hit. “Even though RANBIR KAPOOR’s character doesn’t talk in #BARFI. He as an actor speaks volumes. Period!” tweeted Devansh Patel. “Barfi trailer charming. This Ranbir Kapoor grabs your attention and won’t let go,” tweeted producer Pritish Nandy.last_img read more

first_imgWolves captain Coady: Past week among best of careerby Paul Vegas12 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves captain Conor Coady says the past week was one of the best of his career.The men in old gold won three matches in nine days going into the international break, including eye-catching victories at Besiktas and Manchester City. Coady told the club’s website: “We won’t forget it. It was an amazing week for this football club, we beat Watford, went to Besiktas and put the effort in with such a small squad, and then went to the home of the champions and put in a brilliant performance.“It was massive for us because a lot of people spoke, saying how we started slow, but we were learning. A lot of players haven’t played in the Europa League before, we’ve had an awful lot of games, and the most important thing was we were listening to the manager after every game and learning. We’ve got a break, which we need, but we’ll move on as soon as possible.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_img(Barbara Suggashie, left, and her husband Clarence Suggashie hold the picture of their deceased daughter Kanina Sue Turtle who died by suicide Oct. 29, 2016. APTN file photo)Kenneth JacksonAPTN NewsWhen Barbara Suggashie first saw the video of her daughter’s suicide she only watched the first few minutes.Then she shut it off.She wanted to see if her daughter said goodbye.“But she never said anything,” said Suggashie.Kanina Sue Turtle was 15 when she died Oct. 29, 2016.That’s nearly 730 days ago and Suggashie, like any parent, has often wondered what her daughter was thinking at the time.Kanina did have something to say to her family.She wrote letters to them.But no one told the family.“No one said anything,” said Suggashie on the telephone over the weekend from her home in Poplar Hill near the Ontario and Manitoba border.Not the Ontario Provincial Police that investigated Kanina’s death in Sioux Lookout, Ont.Not Tikinagan Child and Family Services that owned and operated the foster home, and who took Kanina from her parents 10 times throughout her life for safety concerns.And not the Ontario coroner’s office.The family didn’t learn of Kanina’s last words until last month.That’s when a report, commissioned by Chief Coroner Dr. Dirk Huyer, was released on the deaths of 12 kids in child protective services between 2014 and 2017.It’s 86 pages looking at systemic issues that are failing the most vulnerable children in the province. Each of the 12 children had about one page each dedicated to them.In Kanina’s section there is a line that Suggashie hasn’t been able to forget: “Suicide notes were left for various family members…”It came as a shock.Why hadn’t anyone told her?Kanina, left, with her mother, Barbara, several months before her death. Facebook photo.But then again Suggashie was used to things being kept from her after her daughter’s death.For instance, the actual video of Kanina’s suicide was kept from the family for about nine months.During that time Suggashie didn’t believe it was suicide.Then police returned Kanina’s iPod in the summer of 2017 right around the same time the family’s access to information request for Kanina’s police report, and officer’s notes, arrived.Kanina filmed her death on the device and police officer notes mention the video. It’s about an hour and has been reviewed by APTN, as previously reported.The video shows Kanina was left alone for 45 minutes before the a worker in the home checked on her.It was far too late by then as she had been motionless for approximately 40 minutes.Suggashie said she has asked Tikinagan why her daughter was left alone when the agency knew she was suicidal and had been in the hospital multiple times in the days before her death for self-harming.When the investigating coroner did the autopsy hundreds of new cuts were all over her body.“I don’t understand Tikinagan. They are hiding something,” she has said over and over since APTN first broke the news of the video Feb. 28.She also never had the coroner’s death investigation report until late this summer when the family hired a lawyer to find out what happened. The lawyer, Cara Valiquette based in Bracebridge, Ont., was able to get some of Kanina’s records, including her counsellor notes.Those records show Kanina missed every appointment with her counsellor in the five days before her death. Her counsellor, Violet Tuesday in Sioux Lookout, also noted she had difficulty reaching Tikinagan during those five days.In depth: Love and death in child welfare: Kanina Sue Turtle’s last daysThe death investigation report was completed by regional coroner, Michael Wilson, over a year after Kanina’s death because no one had had done it by then, as Wilson mentions. Wilson also says in the report it does not appear anything could have stopped Kanina from killing herself.Wilson was also involved much earlier in the investigation into Kanina’s death. Immediately after her death, the OPP asked the coroner’s office to pay for specialized software that would allow the police to remove the video from Kanina’s iPod and keep as evidence, as the device had timed out and locked police out.Wilson wouldn’t pay the costs and said the family could if they wanted the device back. Kanina’s family would guess her password to get into the phone after police returned it.APTN contacted Huyer by email Monday asking who has Kanina’s suicide letters.“I am away from the office for two days so I am not able to answer until later this week as I have to check with others,” wrote Huyer Monday night. “I would be happy to respond to the family with any questions they have.”Huyer was in Sioux Lookout for a media conference over the cold case involving Audrey Anderson. That’s also where Tikinagan’s headquarters is located.He emailed again Tuesday evening saying he has made several inquires to find out about the letters.“You and the family have raised a question to me which I will make best efforts to find the answers in as timely a manner that I can,” he said. “As you are aware I do not have direct knowledge of all investigations (17,000) in the province each year.  I was not the investigating coroner in this case.”Tikinagan declined to comment when asked why the letters have been kept from the family or when they will be delivered.“Tikinagan will not be commenting on any matter relating to Kanina Turtle, as there is litigation before the Courts,” said Tikinagan’s lawyer, Catherine Beamish.Kanina’s family sued Tikinagan for $5.9 million over her death last month.After learning of the letters Suggashie and her husband, Clarence Suggashie, said they asked Tikinagan for the letters but never got a response.“They didn’t say anything,” said Clarence.He said he now goes to the Northern Store asking if they have mail hoping the letters are there.They are hoping it’s just a mistake someone will correct.“Every day we check the mail,” said Clarence. “Nothing.”kjackson@aptn.calast_img read more
