Almost all civil society organisations in Manipur announced on Sunday that they will join the Citizenship Bill agitations on October 3 throughout the Northeast region in protest against the moves to pass the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.A meeting of the representatives of the civil society organisations and social activists was held in Imphal on Sunday to reaffirm their stand against the Bill.Dilipkumar Yumnamcha, convener of the Manipur People Against Citizenship Amendment Bill (MANPAC) formed by over 84 civil society organisations in Manipur said, “People in the Northeast States are fuming over the one nation, one language theory. The people in Manipur have been agitating all these days contending that when enacted this Bill will be against the interest of the indigenous peoples of this region”.Even States such as Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Nagaland where there is travel restrictions of the outsiders since the Inner Line Permit is in force are not happy with the Bill.Mr. Yumnamcha said that because of the ferment in the NE States the Bill could not be tabled in Rajya Sabha. “However it does not mean that it will not be passed”, he added.All political parties in Manipur are also holding a meeting on Monday to make their stands clear to the people over the Bill.Chief Minister of Manipur N. Biren said that the Bill, when enacted, shall not harm the people of the State. However, his detractors maintain that people take his assurance with a pinch of salt. He said that police parolling and surveillance are intensified over the border towns said to be entry points of the illegal migrants.Another burning problem in Manipur is the forthcoming accord the Indian government is likely to sign with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM). Several prominent politicians say that while the people welcome the forthcoming agreement with the NSCN(IM) they say that nothing should be done to threaten the unity and integrity of Manipur. Sunil Karam, president of United Committee Manipur which is for the protection of Manipur’s territory said that if Manipur’s voice is muffled people will “take up the cudgels to avenge the deaths of 18 persons on June 18, 2001”. They were protesting against the “without territorial limits” words in the agreement with the NSCN(IM).
Japanese carmaker Datsun has launched the redi-GO 1.0-litre in India with prices beginning from Rs 3.57 lakh (Ex-showroom, India). Datsun had launched the 800cc model of the redi-Go in India last year at a price of Rs 2.41 lakh (Ex-showroom, New Delhi). The new car doesn’t come with just a bigger engine, but it also gets a bunch of new features.The new 1.0-litre engine in the redi-GO has been taken from the Renault Kwid and it puts out 68bhp and 91Nm of torque. Unlike the Kwid, the redi-GO 1.0-litre doesn’t come with an automatic gearbox. Power is sent to the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.On the inside, the redi-GO 1.0-litre gets central locking, something that was not present in the 800cc model. However with the launch of the 1.0-litre redi-GO, even the smaller displacement versions will get this feature now. The interiors have been given the black treatment, just like the redi-GO Sport.While the S variant of the redi-GO 1.0-litre has been priced at Rs 3.57 lakh (Ex-showroom, India), the T(O) variant has been priced at Rs 3.72 lakh (Ex-showroom, India). The Datsun redi-GO 1.0-litre competes against the likes of Renault Kwid, Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 and Hyundai Eon in the market.Also Read:Datsun to launch redi-GO 1.0L in India today
The Samsung Galaxy A90 is shaping up to be an exciting new addition to the Galaxy A series based on everything we have been hearing off late. Rumours in the past have suggested that the Galaxy A90 will be the company’s first mid-range phone to rock a Snapdragon 855 chipset. It is also said to come with 5G support and 45W fast charging support, among other things. These features were once again reiterated by a popular tipster who also said that the Galaxy A90 may launch by October.Tipster Ice Universe has been pretty reliable when it comes to news about Samsung’s upcoming products. On Wednesday, the tipster tweeted that the Galaxy A90 will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 SoC and will only come in a 5G version. It would also make the Galaxy A90 one of the cheapest 5G phones in the second half of the year. He adds that the Galaxy A90 will feature a waterdrop display (perhaps an Infinity-U display) with a FHD+ resolution.Galaxy A90 only has 5G version, Snapdragon 855 processor, is one of the cheapest 5G mobile phones in the second half of the year, will be launched in September or October, with water drop design, FHD + screen, design in general, the main 5G.Ice universe (@UniverseIce) July 10, 2019In the same tweet, the tipster claimed that the Galaxy A90 will be launched in September or October. This makes sense as Samsung will be reserving the next few weeks to hype up the launch of the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7.advertisementNot only is the Galaxy A90 rumoured to come with a large 4,500mAh battery, but it will also be Samsung’s first smartphone to support up to 45W fast charging. In recent times, Samsung has been introducing new technologies in its Galaxy A-series phones rather than its flagship series’ so a 45W fast charging support for the Galaxy A90 is believable.Past rumours also say that the Galaxy A90 will sport a 6.7-inch display and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone is also said to come with a feature called Tilt OIS, which seems to suggest a new stabilisation technology for the camera. Additionally, we should also expect a triple camera setup on the back with a 48MP main camera, an ultra wide-angle lens and a depth sensor or telephoto lens.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e review: Great mid-range Android tablet but not a laptop replacementALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy Note 10 first official photos leak out, here’s what it will look like
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, August 25, 2017 – Providenciales – Travelers to the Turks and Caicos Islands will now be known to Border Control officials even before they arrive as the country joins with CARICOM and other nations in a system designed to electronically capture information on those visiting. The measure, called Advance Passenger Information System or #APIS was on Monday tabled in the House of Assembly as on its way by Border Control Minister, Deputy Premier, Sean Astwood, if supported by members.“Small island developing states like our beloved Turks and Caicos islands, must find the balance to embrace the opportunities of globalization, while capitalizing on the powers of an integrated world community to mitigate against the inherent threat that comes with it.”DP Astwood said the US, the UK and members of the Caribbean Community are undertaking the initiative as a crime prevention measure – deterring drug smuggling, human trafficking, weapons and other contraband entering any participating country. The Deputy Premier explained that APIS even speeds up delays at the airport.This profound growth in passenger traffic while great for our tourist industry and vital to our economy brings with it several challenges, ranging in severity from inadequate airport facilities to threat from serious crime and terrorism. And although, Mr. Speaker, we in the TCI can still enjoy what we can still deem as a very safe destination, we must recognize and appreciate the risks that exists and take measures to mitigate against them for the sustainability of the industry and our very way of life.”The introduction of APIS will require changes to the Immigration Ordinance and will hopefully curtail spending as it relates to the human resources it is increasingly taking to manage borders.The measure will take effect soon.#MagneticMediaNews Signing of the Air Passenger Information Services Agreement (APIS) Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, apis TCI needs UK letter of approval to start APIS with CARICOM Recommended for you
Aston Villa manager Dean Smith insists his team has what it takes to defeat Leeds United when both sides face off next weekend.Villa have been in good form of late, having won four of their last seven games in the Sky Bet Championship, and are currently unbeaten since their loss to Queens Park Rangers in October.Since the appointment of Smith as manager, The Villans have jumped from 17th to eighth on the league standings and have the promotion playoff spots within grasp. Aston Villa’s upcoming opponents, Leeds, are also on a good run of form and have won their last five games to return to the top of the table.Smith, however, insists his team are looking forward to the game against Leeds and believe they can beat the league leaders.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Aston Villa’s chief executive, the team needed to spend £144.5 million on 12 players in order to stay competitive.“It’s another one we’re looking forward to”, Smith told Aston Villa’s official website.“It’s Leeds United at home in front of another close to full house.” “They are in the top two doing well.” ”But we believe we can beat them.”Aston Villa are currently three points behind sixth placed Middlesbrough, and will hope to close the gap to teams above them next weekend.

Satellite image of the Indus River basin in Pakistan and India Photo Credit : WikipediaIndian and Pakistani officials will discuss in New Delhi on Thursday and Friday the Permanent Indus Commission (PIC), established under the Indus Waters Treaty.The PIC is mandated to establish and maintain cooperative arrangements for the implementation of the treaty and to promote cooperation between the two sides in developing the Indus water systems.The 113th meeting of the Commission was held in Pakistan in March last year. The 114th meeting in New Delhi will cover technical grounds.Pakistan has been protesting over the design and construction of two projects – the 330 MW Kishanganga hydroelectric project and the 850 MW Ratle hydroelectric project – by India on the tributaries of the Indus in Jammu and Kashmir.The Indus Waters Treaty was signed in 1960 and involves six rivers: the Beas, Ravi, Sutlej, Indus, Chenab and Jhelum.Brokered by the World Bank, the treaty gave the right to use waters of the first three rivers to India and of the other three rivers to Pakistan.India has said it has the right under the treaty to set up hydropower plants on the tributaries of the rivers flowing through its territory. Pakistan fears this might reduce the water flow into its territory.
Location of Burkina Faso. Photo: Google MapAt least nine civilians have been killed in twin attacks in eastern Burkina Faso, a poor West African country where jihadists have been gaining ground in recent months, local authorities said Saturday.“Two terror attacks were carried out in the villages of Diabiga and Kompienbiga” overnight Friday in eastern Kompienga province, the regional governor said in an earlier statement.An unnamed security source told AFP that one of the attacks had targeted the home of a Islamic religious leader and other Muslims.“Five people including the leader were killed,” he said, adding that three others were injured on the attack on the house which is next to a mosque.One of the injured later succumbed to their wounds.Meanwhile, “three people belonging to the same family were killed and another two injured by suspected jihadists on mopeds,” according to another security source.Since 2015, Burkina Faso has battled increased Islamist violence of the sort that plagues neighbouring Mali and Niger, and experts say the recent surge is likely the result of pressure on jihadist insurgents there.The capital Ouagadougou has been hit by three attacks over the past two years leaving a total of 60 people dead.Last week Burkinabe president Roch Marc Christian Kabore promised new security measures “to eradicate the scourge of terrorism”.
Map of RajshahiTwo minor boys drowned in a pond at Hatramchandrapur Dangipara in Paba upazila on Tuesday.The deceased are Rony Ahmed, 5, son of Lokman, and Piarul Islam, 6, son of Belal of the village, reports UNB.Paba police station officer-in-charge Abul Kalam Azad said Rony and Piarul had remained missing since afternoon.After a hectic search, locals found their bodies floating in a pond near their house and recovered the bodies.An unnatural death case was filed in this connection.

The company didn’t announce a price point for the speaker yet, and instead promised updates for price and availability soon.One of the music services available on the speaker will be Spotify, which is being deeply integrated into both the Bixby speaker as well as other Samsung devices. The company even invited Spotify CEO Daniel Ek on stage to announce this new partnership. “The partnership that we are announcing with Samsung today is a true cross-platform listening experience,” Ek said.Part of the arrangement will allow what Samsung calls seamless continuity: Consumers will be able to start listening to an album or playlist on their phone, then continue to play the music to their TV when they get home, and finally press play on their smart speaker to keep playing the same music there.Samsung’s partnership with Spotify is notable for a number of reasons. For Samsung, it’s the latest episode of a multi-year search for a distinct music strategy, which included the launch of its own Milk Music service — a service that was killed two years after its launch. Samsung also briefly flirted with acquiring Tidal, and more recently partnered with Google to use Google Play Music as its default music service.For Spotify, the partnership is a clear attempt to fight off Apple Music, which is benefitting from its close iPhone integration. Unsurprisingly, Ek boasted Thursday that the deal would give his company a vastly larger footprint. “We’re talking about hundreds of millions of devices,” he said. Samsung used its Unpacked event in New York Thursday to unveil its own smart speaker, dubbed Galaxy Home. The company also announced a new partnership with Spotify, promising to deeply integrate the music service into a range of Samsung devices including phones, TVs and the upcoming Galaxy Home speaker.Samsung’s Galaxy Home speaker will be powered by Bixby, the company’s smart assistant. It will use eight microphones, which are supposed to be capable of optimizing far-field voice recognition even in large homes.The speaker will be powered by audio technology from AKG, a subsidiary of the speaker maker Harman, which Samsung acquired last year. It features six tweeters for omnidirectional sound, as well as one woofer. The speaker also integrates a smart home hub capable of controlling devices compatible with Samsung’s Smartthings technology.

Advertisement Botnet is the generic name given to any collection of compromised PCs controlled by an attacker remotely. Botnets generally are created by a specific attacker or small group of attackers using one piece of malware to infect a large number of machines. The individual PCs that are part of a botnet often are called “bots” or “zombies” and there is no minimum size for a group of PCs to be called a botnet. Smaller botnets can be in the hundreds or low thousands of infected machines, while larger ones can run into the millions of PCs. Examples of well-known botnets that have emerged in recent years include Conficker, Zeus, Waledac, Mariposaand Kelihos. A botnet is often discussed as a single entity, however the creators of malware such as Zeus will sell their wares to anyone with the money to pay for them, so there can sometimes be dozens of separate botnets using the same piece of malware operating at one time.Method of Infection There are two main methods through which attackers infect PCs to make them part of a botnet: drive-by downloads and email. Drive-by download infections require a few different steps for the attacker, and they require the attacker to find a popular Web site with an exploitable vulnerability. The attacker then loads his own malicious code on the site and rigs it to exploit a vulnerability in a common browser such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. The code will typically then redirect the user’s browser to another site controlled by the attacker where the bot code will be downloaded and installed on the user’s machine. The email infection vector is much simpler. The attacker sends out a large batch of spam that includes either a file such as a Word document or PDF with malicious code in it, or a link to a site where the malicious code is hosted. In either case, once the attacker’s code is on the user’s machine, that PC is now part of the botnet. The attacker can issue remote commands to the PC, upload data from the machine, download new components and generally do what he wants with it.Uses The traditional and most common use for botnets is in DDoS attacks. These attacks rely on the computing power and bandwidth of hundreds or thousands of PCs to send huge amounts of traffic at a specific Web site in an effort to knock the site offline. There are many different flavors of DDoS attacks, but the goal is the same: preventing the target site from operating. Attackers used to employ this tactic as a way to knock their rivals’ sites offline, but they then began turning it on Web portals such as Yahoo and MSN, shopping and banking sites and government sites. Groups such as Anonymous, LulzSec and others recently have used DDoS attacks against defense companies, banks and other organizations. Meanwhile, cybercriminals have taken to using DDoS attacks against banking sites as a way to disguise deeper attacks on those banks. Botnets also are used in a number of other operations. Spammers employ botnets to send out millions of junk email messages from the infected PCs and cybercriminals use them in large-scale credit-card fraud operations. – Advertisement – Defenses There are a number of defenses against the DDoS attacks that botnets are used for, but nearly all of them are on the ISP or server level. For users, the defense against becoming part of a botnet is to keep all of the software on their machines patched and up-to-date and to resist clicking on suspicious links. Attackers rely on the gullibility of users to open malicious attachments or click on shady links in order to get their malware onto new PCs. Removing that from the equation makes it far more difficult for attackers to build and use botnets.Credit: kaspersky daily
