Banned Bahraini newspaper fires staff

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 06:56:41 -0400

(image) A independent Bahraini newspaper has sacked its staff three weeks after Sunni-dominated authorities banned it on accusations that it "sows division" in the Shiite-majority Gulf kingdom. "We regret to inform you that the board of directors... has decided to terminate the employment contracts with the employees," board chairman Adel al-Maskati wrote in English in a message addressed to "all staff" on Saturday. The information ministry banned Al-Wasat in early June "until further notice" for its "violation of the law and repeatedly publishing information that sows division in society and affects Bahrain's relations with other states," said BNA state news agency.

If Baghdadi is dead, next IS leader likely to be Saddam-era officer

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 06:49:08 -0400

(image) By Maher Chmaytelli BAGHDAD (Reuters) - If Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is confirmed dead, he is likely to be succeeded by one of his top two lieutenants, both of whom were Iraqi army officers under late dictator Saddam Hussein. Experts on Islamist groups see no clear successor but regard Iyad al-Obaidi and Ayad al-Jumaili as the leading contenders, though neither would be likely to assume Baghdadi's title of "caliph", or overall commander of Muslims. Russia's defense ministry said last week Baghdadi may have been killed in an air strike in Syria and Interfax news agency quoted a senior Russian parliamentarian on Friday as saying the likelihood that he had been killed was close to 100 percent.

Which is the best Haribo candy?

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 09:00:00 -0400

It's not just the bears. Friends, let us repeat: it's not just the bears. The (wonderful) world of Haribo is rife with unimaginably delicious, squishy, delightful candies ... and a few duds. Such is the world of the sweet treat. So we grabbed a bunch of Haribo candies available in the U.S. — FYI, some of the labels are in German because that was the deal at Economy Candy — tasted each, then judged away.  SEE ALSO: Dogs, ranked You may disagree with these rankings. That's okay! It's subjective. But if you catch yourself feeling angry, please promise us you'll get yourself a packet of Haribo to make yourself feel better. And now: The embarrassing Berries: Berries are aesthetically pleasing, but they do not taste good. In fact, they taste bad — far too sugary with no flavor payoff — and leave a sweater-y film on your teeth. Just put them in a clear jar and leave them there. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Gummi Frogs: Taste like plastic. Impossible to chew. And the frog speaking German on our bag reminded us of Pepe, which is frankly a real bummer. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Mini Rainbow Frogs: Unfortunately, the white marshmallow-y section has ruined what was otherwise a perfectly good gummy. Also, Rainbow Frogs are so small that popping one in your mouth isn't super satisfying. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Tropifruitti: Oh my god, these suck so much! They taste like a hospital smells. Bad! Give these to your enemies. Image: Mashable/Lili SamsThe fine Dinosaurs: Cool shapes, but the flavors are not particularly distinguishable. Said one staffer, "I would never want to eat more than three of these." Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Smurfs: Smurfs are strawberry and raspberry flavored, which are generally great flavors anyway, so it works out fine. They do get stuck in your teeth easily and are maybe too chewy. Smurfs are fine. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Fizzy Cola: Sadly, Fizzy Cola is inferior to Happy Cola because of whatever lemon-lime business it is attempting. Verdict: fine. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Alphabet Letters: Fun to spell with, but it's hard to remember anything else about them. Fine. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams The good Rattle-Snakes: Here, some flavors are clearly better than others. Take it from us: the white and red gummies are bright and fruity without being overly saccharine — a delightful experience. The other ones are a little more ... whatever. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Happy Cherries: A classic fave in a lovely shape. Highly Instagrammable. However, it must be said: Happy Cherries are polarizing. Said one staffer, "They taste like bad breath to me." Surprising! Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Fruit Salad: The way these candies rattle around in the bag is unnerving. The grapefruit ones are the best. Image: Mashable/Lili SamsThe *chef's kiss* Sour S'ghetti: This tart, delicate masterpiece is the perfect candy to eat when you're watching TV alone in bed. Just shovel it into your mouth by the palmful. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Happy Cola: A cola flavored gummy sounds weird, but the flavor here is surprisingly subtle and nice. Good for people who like Coke Icees. Image: Mashable/Lili Sams Gold-Bears: These little friends are classic, and the red ones are ob[...]

Relations between New Delhi and Washington warmed under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama as India sought greater foreign investment and trade ties with Western nations. Prime Minister Narendra Modi vowed to work closely with the Trump administration, but obstacles soon emerged on issues such as trade and visas for Indians wanting to work in the United States.

Iraqi forces free hundreds of civilians in Mosul Old City battles as death toll mounts

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 11:17:36 -0400

(image) By Marius Bosch MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraqi forces opened exit routes for hundreds of civilians to flee the Old City of Mosul on Saturday as they battled to retake the quarter from Islamic State militants mounting a last stand in what was the de facto capital of their self-declared caliphate. U.S.-trained urban warfare units were channeling their onslaught along two perpendicular streets that converge in the heart of the Old City, aiming to isolate the jihadist insurgents in four pockets. The week-old battle in the Old City is turning into the deadliest of the eight-month U.S.-backed campaign to take back the northern city, which fell to the militants in June 2014.

How the CIA hacks computers that aren’t even connected to the internet

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 15:01:34 -0400

Air-gapped computers are supposed to be ultra-secure PCs that can’t be infected with malware that spreads with the help of the internet. That’s because of these computers, often connected to sensitive machines, aren’t also connected to the internet. You’d think these systems would be impenetrable by remote attacks and would require a hacker to be in the same room with the PC. But, unsurprisingly, the CIA developed tools that can infect air-gapped computers.

Wikileaks on Thursday published more than 150 pages of materials that explain how the CIA used USB drives to sneak malware to the air-gapped machines. After all, even these computers need to exchange data, and the only way to do it is using USB drives or external hard drives.

A platform called Brutal Kangaroo contains tools that can be used to target computer systems not connected to the internet, Ars Technica explains. Drifting Deadline is a tool installed on a computer of interest. When a USB drive is connected to it, the tool will infect it with malware that would then be passed to the air-gapped computer.

These advanced malware versions would be able to infect air-gapped computer immediately after the USB drive is plugged in. Some of them required no user interaction and could be activated by default behaviors in Windows, such as Windows Explorer displaying icons, or the letter corresponding to the thumb drive that was just inserted.

Microsoft said it patched some of these vulnerabilities, and they don’t work on any of the supported versions of Windows.

The documentation says that the first infection — the deployment of Drifting Deadline — might need manual access to a computer, but Ars argues that intrepid hackers could find ways to deliver the malware to the computer that would be used to transmit it to a USB stick.

Stray cats, killers and no regrets: Duterte's drug-war foe on life in jail

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 12:06:43 -0400

(image) By Clare Baldwin and Andrew R.C. Marshall MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine police have arrested more than 80,000 people during President Rodrigo Duterte's brutal war on drugs, but few as prominent or defiant as Leila de Lima. A Philippine senator and Duterte's long-time foe, de Lima was arrested in February on drugs charges she says were trumped up as part of a presidential vendetta. Held at police detention facility in Manila that she shares with murder suspects and mangy cats, the 57-year-old lawyer remains implacably critical of the anti-narcotics campaign and Duterte, who will complete his first year in office this week.
