Iran denounces US and Saudi sanctions against Hezbollah

first_imgAn image grab taken from al-Manar TV on May 14, 2018, shows the leader the Lebanon`s Shiite Hezbollah movement Hassan Nasrallah giving a televised speech at an unknown location on May 14, 2018. Photo : AFPIran’s foreign minister on Thursday lashed out on Twitter at the US and Saudi Arabia for imposing sanctions on leaders of its Lebanese ally Hezbollah.”Israeli snipers shoot over 2,000 unarmed Palestinian protestors on a single day,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet referring to protests and clashes in the Gaza Strip that killed some 60 people this week.The “Saudi response, on eve of Ramadan? Collaboration with its US patron to sanction the first force to liberate Arab territory and shatter the myth of Israeli invincibility. Shame upon shame,” he said.The United States and six Gulf Arab states announced sanctions Wednesday on the leadership of Hezbollah, as Washington seeks to step up economic pressure on Iran and its allies in the region after president Donald Trump withdrew this month from the 2015 nuclear deal.The US and Saudi-led Terrorist Financing and Targeting Center said the sanctions were aimed at Hezbollah’s Shura Council, the powerful Lebanese group’s decision-making body, led by its secretary general Hassan Nasrallah.Nasrallah, Hezbollah deputy secretary general Naim Qasim, and three other Shura Council members were listed under the joint sanctions, which aim at freezing vulnerable assets of those named and blocking their access to global financial networks.At the same time, the six Gulf members of the TFTC — Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates — declared sanctions on another nine individuals and firms part of or linked to Hezbollah that were already blacklisted by the US Treasury.Hezbollah is a key player in Lebanese politics, and it maintains its own arsenal of weapons and fighting force.The group is fighting in Syria alongside president Bashar al-Assad’s military, and it has trained Iraqi Shiite militias which participated in retaking territory from the Islamic State group.The sanctions by Gulf states follow two US moves this month to put pressure on Iran’s financial networks, including sanctions announced Tuesday aimed at an alleged financial pipeline that moved “hundreds of millions of dollars” from Iran’s central bank through an Iraqi bank to Hezbollah.The European Union has viewed Hezbollah’s armed wing as a “terrorist” organisation since 2013.In 2016, the six Arab Sunni powers of the Gulf Co-operation Council — Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman – designated Hezbollah a “terrorist” organisation.last_img

Welcome to Codeverse where kids learn to build games and hack light

first_img ©2018 Chicago Tribune Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. He hacked the concert lights in the small, dark room, making them flash and move around. Another kid bounced around next to him.”I control all the lights now,” Cillian said, tapping the screen of his iPad and looking toward the lights on the ceiling. As he changed the colors, the lights flashed across his face and lit up his spiky blond hair. “I can make it red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet.”Cillian was learning to code. Armed with an iPad and kid-specific coding language, he and the roughly 30 other 6- to 12-year-olds attending camp at Codeverse Lincoln Park learned to create games and control the TVs, speakers and robotic arms in the space. The coding studio, which opened a year ago in the Goose Island neighborhood and just raised $10 million from investors including Chicago-based venture capital firm Listen Ventures, is set to expand to the north and west suburbs.Coding has been gaining prominence in schools throughout the Chicago area in recent years as educators and tech companies stress the importance of the skill for the future workforce. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said computer programming is a language students should be fluent in. Chicago Public Schools has made taking at least one credit of computer science a graduation requirement, starting with the class of 2020. Apple has teamed up with CPS and City Colleges of Chicago to offer its free coding curriculum to teachers.After-school boot camps and coding clubs have also been springing up. Another kids coding franchise, Code Ninja, is eyeing expansion in the Chicago area, and national nonprofit Girls Who Code is also active in the area.Still, Codeverse co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer Katy Lynch said “kids are not getting enough of it.” That’s especially true for younger children, who may struggle with some of the more complicated concepts of learning a programming language. To help with that, Codeverse developed its own coding language for children, called KidScript.”When you look at the world of coding today, the things you think about are the adult languages that exist,” Lynch said. “The issue with those languages is that they’re pretty advanced. You’d never be able to sit a 6-year-old in front of Python and say, ‘OK, learn it.’ ” Explore further Citation: Welcome to Codeverse, where kids learn to build games and hack light fixtures (2018, August 29) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-08-codeverse-kids-games-hack-fixtures.html Google celebrates 50 years of kids coding languages—5 ways to get your kid engagedcenter_img The company plans to open studios in Wilmette and Naperville this fall and hire about 60 new employees in the Chicago area over the next three months. The new studios will offer weeklong camps, after-school and weekend classes.Eventually, Codeverse plans to expand nationally and offer KidScript as a standalone service. Lynch said the company is going to Wilmette and Naperville next because the communities are family-focused and supportive of Codeverse. Plus, the company has relationships in Naperville after demonstrating KidScript at schools there.The Lincoln Park studio is set up so children can choose their own adventure, Lynch said, weaving around the students on a recent afternoon. The students come in, put their shoes in their cubbyholes and learn the lay of the land. Once they’re settled, the children grab their iPads—outfitted with custom-made kidproof cases—and disperse based on age and skill level.”If I’m 12 and you’re 6, I’m not going to want to hang out with you and code with you,” Lynch said.One boy sat against the wall on a recent afternoon, immersed in his iPad, his yellow-socked feet crossed. A girl lounged on a purple beanbag. Nearby, a boy looked back and forth between his iPad and a robotic arm he was controlling. Someone announced there was a dance party in a dark corner room—the Black Hole, they call it—where 8-year-old Cillian was writing code to control the lights.”I’m shocked,” said Shalini Mendelsohn, whose 8-year-old daughter Simrin attends Codeverse’s camp. “I thought they’d come here and just kind of play games, but they’re not. They’re learning to code.”Simrin hasn’t learned to code in school, Mendelsohn said. She and her husband are both in the information technology industry—she works for Apple, and he works for IBM. Simrin has access to laptops, watches and the like, but this is the first time devices have become functional for her, outside of putting on Netflix, her mother said.Simrin was sitting between her parents, showing them the game she was developing. It involved a dog attempting to jump up and make a cannon shoot. If you lose, the dog gets turned into a cat. Simrin lost on purpose and laughed.Codeverse is catering to a developing need among school-age children, said Paul Earle, adjunct lecturer in innovation and entrepreneurship at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.”This generation believes that it’s up to them to make their own way and to innovate and disrupt and create the future,” Earle said. “Codeverse plugs into that beautifully because you’re giving young people the hard skills early on to be a digital entrepreneur.”Innovation and entrepreneurship can also offer a pathway to prosperity, and Codeverse would do well to become accessible to communities of different economic profiles, Earle said.Codeverse offers weeklong classes for $800. A monthly membership, which includes a 75-minute class each week, is $225. There is also a four-month option for $175 per month.Though the students learn only one language at Codeverse—KidScript—experts say learning one programming language is a good starting point to gain more knowledge about coding. Apple’s Everyone Can Code program, which is being taught through the partnership with CPS and City Colleges, teaches only the company’s programming language, Swift.After class last week, Ellie Rosenberg, 8, was showing off the game she was developing. It’s called “Robot Dash,” and the player’s objective is to dodge falling boulders while jumping from brick to brick and trying to touch a floating slice of pizza.Ellie was working on making the game a little easier—she has yet to win—but not too easy. She’s also working on deciding what she wants to be when she grows up.”I really like baseball, and I really like to engineer stuff,” she said, eyes not leaving the iPad screen. After a pause she looked up and added, “Which would include coding.” Eight-year-old Cillian Rhodes was hosting a dance party. This document is subject to copyright.

China’s Huawei, ZTE blocked from Australia’s 5G network Did you ever go to your local show as a child? Remember that infuriating game where to win you had to hit every mole which popped its head out of a hole? I imagine Australia’s government feels like it’s playing whack-a-mole in regulating Chinese information and communications technology right now. Explore further Citation: Whacking the mole: how Australia scrambles to regulate Chinese technology (2018, September 12) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-09-whacking-mole-australia-scrambles-chinese.htmlcenter_img Provided by The Conversation Where’s the next threat coming from? Whack it! Credit: www.shutterstock.com A clearer policy on regulating information and communications technology in the context of national security threats may help. Though in this version of the game, the stakes are rather higher than cheap toys at the local show. Last month, the Australian government effectively banned Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE from tendering for our national 5G network. This week, the ABC revealed a range of secure locations using surveillance equipment made by Chinese companies which are likely to be banned from providing such equipment to government in the US. One in particular, Hikvision (HIK), has very close links to the Chinese government—42% is owned by state-owned enterprises, and the company is associated with a technology lab inside China’s Ministry of Public Security.The ABC’s investigations showed surveillance equipment being used in a range of locations, from an Australian defence base in South Australia, to Sydney’s Central Station. Critical supply chainsAs a resource-driven economy, Australia is not used to being at the wrong end of critical supply chains. We are familiar with being at the base of the supply chain for critical infrastructure – producing the iron ore, rare earths and coal which make and fuel technology. But recent concerns around regulating the risk from Chinese information and communications technology (ICT) have revealed exactly how uncomfortable it is at the pointy end of this particular supply chain. It’s this user end of the supply chain that the US Department of Homeland Security says is especially vulnerable to foreign espionage. Chinese ICT companies are increasingly at the forefront of discussion about information security and cyber risk in Australia, following the strong US lead in this discussion. In the broader sense, discussions about the risk from Chinese ICT firms are similar to discussions about Chinese investment in critical infrastructure – ports, for example, or gas pipelines. We want to ensure the safety of national assets from the attentions of interests which may not be compatible with our own. But ICT is different. Four reasons ICT is differentFirst, the supply chain is murky. In the case of HIK, for example, its products are often rebadged and on-sold by third parties. And the problem is compounded when software is introduced into the mix. Who in government – state, federal or local – should be responsible for assuring the safety of these devices? Second, where should regulation end? Who is to say whether four components made by a Chinese company in a device make an item vulnerable, but two do not? Can a local council use a HIK camera but a state government must not? Whose job is it to check? Third, the private sector is directly implicated in ICT and cybersecurity more broadly. Purchasing decisions and cybersecurity practices at even the smallest private sector firm can have an impact on national security, especially given the increasing importance of internet-connected devices. Finally, Chinese ICT companies are often the cheapest suppliers of equipment (in part, perhaps, because – like HIK – they have been fuelled by huge Chinese government contracts). This means banning them as suppliers imposes a cost burden on government, the private sector and consumers. Time for actionUnlike the US, whose lead we tend to follow on these issues, Australia has no domestic ICT manufacturing industry and so – for us – there are no domestic winners from regulating purchasing decisions like this. Review of foreign investment in critical infrastructure has recently been upgraded. But ICT has unique and diverse needs. A security camera in Central Station is not the same as a port in Darwin. Government knows this: 2016’s Cyber Security Strategy outlined as one of its goals: “develop guidance for government agencies to consistently manage supply chain security risks for ICT equipment and services.”But the 2017 update on progress in implementing the strategy lists developing such guidance as “not scheduled to have commenced”. Perhaps it should have by now.last_img read more

Largest Neolithic Settlement in Israel Uncovered Up to 3000 People May Have

first_img Photos: 2,000-Year-Old Roman Road and Coins Discovered in Israel Archaeologists have known about this location, called the Motza site, for decades. However, now that the government plans to build a new highway entrance and roundabouts there, the Israel Antiquities Authority sent a team to do a full-scale excavation of the Neolithic settlement, Vardi told Live Science. It quickly became the largest excavation of a Neolithic site in the country, he said. During the Neolithic, hunter-gatherer groups began farming and making permanent settlements. So, the archaeologists expected to find something smaller, less sophisticated. Instead, they found large buildings with rooms where Neolithic people once lived, public facilities and places for rituals. Alleyways ran between the buildings, showing that the settlement had an advanced layout. Some buildings even had plaster floors. The team also uncovered human burials beneath and around the houses. Some of the burials also held burial goods, likely offerings that may have been given to help the deceased in the afterlife. Some of these grave goods came from far away — including obsidian beads from Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) and seashells from the Mediterranean and Red Sea — indicating that the people at this site traded with neighboring regions. The excavation also uncovered several stone and mother-of-pearl bracelets, which, given their small size, were likely worn by children or adolescents, Vardi said. He added that one burial showed that these bracelets were worn on the upper arm. The site also has thousands of stone arrowheads for hunting, axes for felling trees and sickle blades and knives, as well as figurines whose styles date to the Neolithic. Radiocarbon dating of the seeds found at the site indicate that people lived there between 9,000 and 8,800 years ago, Vardi said. In addition to farming and keeping goats, these people also kept cows and pigs; they also hunted game, such as gazelle, deer, wolves and foxes, according to animal remains found there. “Based on the data that we have and from the fauna, we have a pretty good notion that the people at the site were farmers and they were specialists in what they did,” Vardi said. After the Neolithic period ended, people continued to live there. It’s clear why this spot was so desirable, Vardi said, as it’s near a large spring and several smaller springs that supply fresh water. The site is now 3.1 miles (5 kilometers) from Jerusalem, on the banks of the Sorek Stream. The entire Motza site is about 0.1 square miles (30 to 40 hectares). As the excavation wraps up, the team still has a lot on its plate. They plan to publish several papers and articles for the public on the site, as well as put some of the artifacts in museums for public viewing, Vardi said. Photos: Roadside Dig Reveals 10,000-Year-Old House in Israel Before being destroyed by a newly constructed highway, a 9,000-year-old Neolithic site just outside of Jerusalem is getting an exhaustive excavation, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority. The humans who lived there during the Neolithic (the last period of the Stone Age) were a sophisticated bunch. Many of them were likely farmers who had stored hundreds of thousands of seeds — including lentils, chickpeas and beans — in storage facilities. These ancient people also kept domesticated goats, according to animal remains found at the site, and they traded with neighboring regions, such as what is now Turkey, Jordan and the Red Sea. “This is the first time that such a large-scale settlement from the Neolithic Period — 9,000 years ago — [has been] discovered in Israel,” Hamoudi Khalaily and Jacob Vardi, archaeologists and excavation directors at the site, who work with the Israel Antiquities Authority, said in a statement. “At least 2,000 [to] 3,000 residents lived here — an order of magnitude that parallels a present-day city.” [See Photos of the Neolithic Excavation] Largest Neolithic Excavation on Record in IsraelArchaeologists are excavating a 9,000-year-old farming settlement in Israel that dates to the Neolithic.

Prioritise childcare centres in govt depts

first_imgSIBU: There are 541 government departments and agencies nationwide without taska or childcare centres, and their heads have been told to prioritise the matter.Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Hannah Yeoh said these departments and agencies should set aside funds from their budget to open such centres.“They should not wait for us for the grant to start taska.“Our grant is just to help kick-start the opening of a taska, especially at hospitals,” she said when launching the Sibu Hospital taska yesterday. AdChoices广告Yeoh said concerted efforts must be stepped up as the government had made it compulsory for all its workplaces to have taska by January.She said that RM10mil was allocated in the 2019 budget for the purpose and 66 of the 101 applications were approved.“Nineteen taska are in government hospitals and 18 in police stations, fire stations and Immigration offices,” she said.On the Sibu Hospital taska, Yeoh said it was dedicated to five-month-old Adam Raykal Mohd Sufi Naeif, who was found dead in his babysitter’s refrigerator on July 3 last year.The parent of the boy had reported him missing and police found the baby’s body in the fridge of his babysitter’s house in Kampung Nakho­da.
