Lizard Squad hackers take down National Crime Agency website

first_img Clara Guibourg Tags: Cybercrime Lizard Squad hackers take down National Crime Agency website Tuesday 1 September 2015 11:20 am Cybercriminals claim to have attacked the UK’s National Crime Agency’s website, in revenge against the agency’s Operation Vivarium, which targeted internet attacks.The infamous hacking group Lizard Squad, known for targeting Microsoft and Sony in attacks last year, has taken responsibility for the attack. Through Operation Vivarium, the NCA targeted cyber crime. Last week the agency arrested six people for buying Lizard Squad’s cyberattack tool “Stressed Out” – code that makes it possible to break into websites.The  group has now executed its revenge for the arrests, it seems. The NCA website was down this morning, and Lizard Squad has tweeted a photo of a lizard in a top hat alongside a message reading, “Stressed out? http://www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/  #offline”.https://twitter.com/LizardLands/status/638617494702399488NCA has clarified on Twitter that the cyber attack against it “isn’t hacking, there’s been no intrusion”. Rather, Lizard Squad has executed a DDOS attack, crashing the agency’s website by bombarding it with traffic.  Share whatsappcenter_img whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Drake & Josh’ Star Drake Bell Arrested in Ohio on Attempted ChildThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

News / ‘Be more vigilant’ message to forwarders on potentially dangerous shipments

first_img© Hupeng | Dreamstime.com By Alexander Whiteman 24/09/2018 Forwarders need to improve levels of due diligence to avert the risks to cargo security, with e-commerce lowering the industry’s barrier to entry.Senior loss prevention executive at TT Club Mike Yarwood told The Loadstar the wider industry needed to play its role in facilitating this.“It’s about empowering all the forwarders to ask the relevant questions with the necessary knowledge for the shipment in hand,” he said.“Once the due diligence is done, it’s then about turning to the goods in transit and making sure they are transported under the right conditions and that these are maintained.”center_img Mr Yarwood said forwarders needed to ask, on every shipment, what is being shipped, where it is being shipped to and who their customers are.However, he believed the rise of e-commerce had made the job harder, by lowering the bars to entry and leaving many forwarders unaware that they may be shipping dangerous goods.“As an example, not everyone realises that airbag components are classed as dangerous goods – the mechanism that releases them is classed as an explosive,” he said.“This is not to say all forwarders have little knowledge of the markets, but it is important that they know what their responsibilities are.”To address this, Mr Yarwood called on regulators, industry bodies and governments to put greater emphasis on improving the visibility of the CTU Code.Adopted in 2014, CTU is the industry’s first code of practice for cargo security and, while regarded as non-mandatory in international law, Mr Yarwood implored more forwarders to follow it.“It not only tells forwarders and shippers who must be doing what, but it also lays out the guidelines on culpability when accidents do occur,” he said.“These responsibilities are set out and works on a case-by-case basis with judgements made on individual merits.“It’s about empowerment and knowledge, and this is where the CTU Code excels and this is why all forwarders should make themselves familiar with it,” he said.last_img read more

News / Profits up for CH Robinson, but cool chain business bucks growth trend

first_img North America’s largest freight service provider, CH Robinson, delivered double-digit profit growth in the fourth quarter and for the full-year 2018, it announced yesterday.Group-wide Q4 revenue increased 4.5% to $4.1bn  and net revenue 13% to $713.8m. Full-year income was up 11.8% to $16.6bn and net revenues increased 14.2% to $2.7bn.Its largest segment remained its North America land transport division, which saw its full-year revenue grow to 15.6% to $11.2bn, while in the fourth quarter it saw a stronger pricing environment lead to post a 6% revenue growth to $2.8bn, despite seeing a 1.5% decline in full-truckload volumes and a 13% decline in intermodal volumes. LTL volumes grew 2%.Its freight forwarding operations saw double-digit revenue growth in both the fourth quarter and full year, to $677m and $2.5bn respectively. © Piotr Trojanowski By Gavin van Marle 30/01/2019center_img “[Fourth quarter] ocean net revenues increased 12.4% driven by higher volumes and pricing. Net revenues in air increased 9.3%, as the air service line benefited from a decreasing cost environment. Customs net revenues increased 12.4%, driven by higher volumes and pricing,” it explained.However, its perishables supply chain service, Robinson Fresh, bucked the growth trend with revenue down 10.6% to $532m in Q4, and by 6.1% across the year to $2.3bn.On the fourth quarter results, it said: “Sourcing net revenues decreased 8.2%. Case volumes declined 6.5%, driven by lower restaurant traffic at our foodservice customers.“Transportation net revenues increased 45.9%, primarily driven by truckload pricing increases.“Robinson Fresh operating expenses increased 7.9%, driven by increased variable compensation expense, partially offset by a 5.1% reduction in average headcount.”It also indicated that there was unlikely to be any exceptional merger and acquisition activity, as it outlined its expected 2019 capex to investors.“Capital expenditures totalled $14.3m in the quarter. We expect 2019 capital expenditures to be between $80m and $90m, with the majority dedicated to technology,” it said.Chief executive John Wiehoff said: “As we turn to 2019, we remain focused on top-line growth and operating margin expansion and believe our continued investments in technology will help enable us to achieve these objectives.“A critical part of our strategy is to make investments that add value for our customers and carriers and drive growth for our business, regardless of where we are in the freight cycle.“I remain as confident as ever that we have the right people, processes and technology to continue to win in the marketplace,” he added.last_img read more

PORTIA SIMPSON MILLER, PRIME MINISTER AT BRAND JAMAICA CAMPAIGN LAUNCH ON, FEBRUARY 07, 2007 AT JAMAICA PEGASUS HOTEL FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail It is an honour for me to participate in this launch of the Business Brand for Jamaica.Jamaica has long been recognized as one of the world’s most formidable brands. It is a brand that continues to be fueled by our nation’s outstanding achievements in so many areas.In the creative industries, including music, art and culture where our entertainers are celebrated wherever in the world they go.In sports, where our athletes dominate the world stage;I must also mention our food which is featured on the menus of eminent restaurants globally. In all corners of the world, the Jamaica brand continues to inspire and influence cultures and forms of expression – whether in film, literature or music. Our brand equity does not stop there.We have succeeded in establishing ourselves as a foremost tourism destination.Last year, we achieved record tourist arrivals, exceeding 3 million, for the first time.We were also named world’s leading cruise destination at the recent World Travel Awards ceremony.This performance is supported by the expansion of the industry with increasing investments by both local and foreign investors in the accommodations sub-sector and luxury resort developments.This will lead to growth in the island’s room stock by 40% by 2010. We are a nation known for our super models, super athletes, super entertainers and majestic landscapes.We have given icons and legends to the world; such as Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Herb McKenley, George Headley, Sherone Simpson, Donald Quarrie, Merlene Ottey, Louise Bennett, Asafa Powell and Courtney Walsh, to name a few.From fashion to fine arts, music to cuisine, our unique culture stands out. We must continue to share our genius with the world.Let us be equally known as world class designers, men and women who carve and weave, trainers, health professionals, educators, producers, lawyers, scientists and entrepreneurs.And if we are still not convinced of the value of brand Jamaica, we need only to look to the many international powerhouses that have leveraged our brand for economic gain.Let me share a ready example.According to the American City Business Journal, the Sports Brand – Puma, posted a 48% jump in profits for July 2004 following that company’s Jamaica campaign and its association with our Olympic athletes.Look at the high number of products on the international market that use our colours and imagery on their labelling and packaging.Examine the frequency with which our music is used in global advertising to increase brand appeal and profitability.These initiatives, ladies and gentlemen, bear testimony to the invaluable ‘Brand Jamaica’ asset that our nation possesses.These significant achievements speak to the more creative and widely celebrated side of Jamaica.What this Business Brand Jamaica Campaign will do, is highlight another side of Jamaica, namely, the business side that is energized by our creative power.It is designed to expand the profile of Jamaica from a cultural icon and leisure destination to one where business also plays a driving role.We are saying to the world that today’s Jamaica means business – and we are open for business.At this the launch of the local Brand Jamaica Campaign, I want to encourage Jamaicans at all levels — individuals, groups or companies, from the smallest to the largest, to harness this potential and apply our natural talents, creativity.Our drive for excellence, reliability and integrity are critical in ensuring its success.We must leverage our assets and competitive advantages.Jamaica will soon have two world class international airports, with the expansion and upgrading programme now in progress; which is due to be completed in 2008.We already have an advanced telecommunications infrastructure. Work is on-going in upgrading our highways and improving our islandwide road network.We are also expanding the port of Kingston, which recently doubled its capacity and is well on the way to qualifying as a world mega-transshipment hub, making it even more attractive to international shipping companies.Jamaica continues to command the world’s attention as a premier investment destination. Between 2000 and 2005, on average, U.S. 581 million dollars was invested in Jamaica by international firms.This strong investment performance comes against the backdrop of an equally favourable rating of our country as a business friendly environment.Jamaica is currently ranked 21st as an inward investment location by the United Nations Council on Trade and Development – UNCTD.The World Bank and International Finance Corporation Report, last year, ranked Jamaica 10th in terms of the ease of starting a business.A.T. Kearney Incorporated, a business rating agency in the United States, says Jamaica is first in the Caribbean as a near shore destination for information and communication technology.Jamaica is also ranked ‘number one’ in the Caribbean for e-readiness for the inclusion of technology in government services, by the United Nations, in a study completed in 2005.Ladies and gentlemen, this is the other side of brand Jamaica that we now need to showcase to the world. And, what better time than March 2007 to begin, when the eyes of the world are focused on the Caribbean?During Cricket World Cup 2007, we will interact with an estimated 13,000 additional visitors to Jamaica.We in the Caribbean will enjoy global media exposure estimated at U.S. 102 million dollars. The region will be the focus of some 1.8 billion viewers worldwide, over 58 days.From a business perspective, this will provide exposure for brand Jamaica into previously under-tapped and non-traditional markets, such as India, South Africa and Ireland.It presents an unprecedented opportunity to attract high yield tourism, accelerate investment and increase our exports to these and other markets.The Jamaica promotions corporation, JAMPRO has put in place a number of key initiatives to ensure that we maximize the business opportunities from cricket world cup 2007.One such initiative, the Caribbean Business Opportunity Services, links local suppliers of goods and services with international buyers.To date, over 100 local companies are either engaged in competitive bidding or are negotiating contracts for local and international business arising from this service.Another initiative, the Jamaica Investment Attraction Programme, is a targeted effort to accelerate relationships with qualified investment prospects.It will see over 50 major targeted investors being hosted in the island during the period of the cricket tournament.Integral to this strategy is a unique hosting programme facilitated by the Caribbean Business Club, which will showcase our goods, services and investment possibilities.These initiatives, ladies and gentlemen, show that the government is actively using the occasion of cricket world cup 2007 to open new business ventures for Jamaica.This opportunity to reposition business Brand Jamaica will be one of the greatest legacies of the hosting this international sporting event, there are many positives.There is the upgrading of our world famous cricket ground – Sabina Park and the construction of the Trelawny multi-purpose stadium.There is the infrastructural improvement work to our hospitals, health centres and transportation system. I will, however, just pause to say that, as we work to make these improvements, we know that people have been inconvenienced in their day-to-day activities.We empathize and understand.To the residents of the communities surrounding Sabina Park, the persons affected by work on the rose hall main road in Montego Bay and all other Jamaicans and visitors affected by development projects across the island, I ask of you, patience.I urge you to think of the future benefits to be derived from these projects.Let us remember today’s nuisance will soon become tomorrow’s delight.Other positives coming from the repositioning of business brand Jamaica include, the benefits to individuals and communities, from the establishment of a structured bed and breakfast programme.This programme will facilitate increased tourist arrivals and ensure that more Jamaicans will benefit.Our human resource capability will also be enhanced following intensive tourism and hospitality training for craft and food vendors, tour guides, workers in ground transportation, the attractions sub-sector and airport-based personnel.There has also been comprehensive training for 1200 volunteers charged with enhancing visitor experience and upgrading of skills in the security sector in areas such as venue and VIP security.All of these are coupled with the clean up and beautification activities taking place across the island.Many events are being staged by community groups and the increased pride and spirit that these will engender will ensure that the effects of cricket world cup 2007 will be a lasting heritage for all Jamaicans.Jamaica is now well-positioned to market itself as a viable destination for event hosting and sports tourism.In this regard, our attractiveness is enhanced by the ability to offer a year round venue for training, sporting tournaments and camps.This will augur well for our hosting of the International Cricket Council Champions trophy competition in 2010.Ladies and gentlemen, based on our enhanced capabilities, I am confident that our country is favorably positioned to successfully play its part in the hosting of that tournament.The prospects for a country branding programme for Jamaica are without limits. As small as we are, Jamaica is part of a larger global community, the members of which compete for capital, investment, tourists, export markets and technical and financial assistance.We expect that this business branding campaign will provide Jamaica with a crucial competitive advantage.It will pave the way for enhanced economic benefits through increased investments, both those generated locally and those from overseas.The business branding campaign will also serve to enhance the potential for increasing exports and foreign exchange earning.It is therefore, truly an honour for me to launch the local roll out of the business brand Jamaica programme.But this is just the beginning and the government cannot do it alone. Ultimate success of our efforts requires the involvement, commitment and support of each and every Jamaican.It requires that the private sector must contribute by infusing the essence of the campaign into the delivery of its products, services, and marketing efforts.It requires that the public sector must ensure that the values of the campaign are embedded in every aspect of our service.It requires that the media must continue to publicize positive messages about our business brand Jamaica. It requires that every member of the public must embrace “Business Brand Jamaica” and the economic promise that lies at the heart of the programme.The Brand Jamaica Campaign is about each and every one of us.It is about the substantial role we play in determining the future of our nation.I am reminded of this chorus we sang as children.This little light of mine,I’m gonna let it shineThis little light of mine,I’m gonna let it shineLet it shine, Let it shine, Let it shine.Ladies and gentlemen, if each and every Jamaican commits to rekindling his or her own fire, working to his or her fullest potential, establishing his or her own light. then, if we all work together, imagine the energy and impact we can create!Within that one beacon of Jamaican light are lightbeams of genius, lightbeams of confidence and determination, the lightbeam of creativity, and of success.I am therefore confident that success will adorn our efforts.Ladies and gentlemen, it is therefore my distinct pleasure to now officially declare this campaign launched. Today’s Jamaica means business.One loveGod bless this beautiful land of ours; God bless our beautiful people.I thank you.last_img read more

Sandy Bay/Montpelier Football Corner League Competition Launched

Every developed country has a structured sporting system,” he stated in his address at the launch of the Sandy Bay/Montpelier Football Corner League held in Hanover at the Tryall Club Hotel recently.He expressed the view that the challenge for the development of proper structures and a working policy, rests with the political directorate, sports organizers, and the Executive Directors of sporting agencies.The corner league competition is being administered by the Hopewell/Sandy Bay Sports Council and funded by the Tryall Club Hotel.In addition to policy, Mr. Andrews suggested that there should be a philosophy in the sporting discipline of football, so as to have the same style and brand of football being played in every nook and cranny of the island. He said that without such a philosophy, putting a national team together is a tedious task.“If we have one national philosophy of football, then everybody would be playing it. And when you have a national philosophy you develop academies,” he stated. RelatedSandy Bay/Montpelier Football Corner League Competition Launchedlast_img read more

Tesla wants to electrify big trucks, production kicking off in 2019

first_img “He’s got so much on his plate right now. This could present another distraction from really just making sure that the Model 3 is moved along effectively,” said Bruce Clark, a senior vice-president and automotive analyst at Moody’s.Tesla’s semi is venturing into an uncertain market. Demand for electric trucks is expected to grow over the next decade as the U.S., Europe and China all tighten their emissions regulations. Electric truck sales totalled 4,100 in 2016, but are expected to grow to more than 70,000 in 2026, says Navigant Research. But most of that growth is expected to be for smaller, medium-duty haulers like garbage trucks or delivery vans. Those trucks can have a more limited range of 100 miles (160 kilometres) or less, which requires fewer expensive batteries. They can also be fully charged overnight.Long-haul semi trucks, on the other hand, would be expected to go greater distances, and that would be challenging. Right now, there’s little charging infrastructure on global highways. Without Tesla’s promised fast-charging, even a mid-sized truck would likely require a two-hour stop, cutting into companies’ efficiency and profits, says Brian Irwin, managing director of the North American industrial group for the consulting firm Accenture.Irwin says truck companies will have to watch the market carefully, because tougher regulations on diesels or an improvement in charging infrastructure could make electric trucks more viable very quickly. Falling battery costs also will help make electric trucks more appealing compared to diesels. But even lower costs won’t make trucking a sure bet for Tesla. It faces stiff competition from long-trusted brands like Daimler AG, which unveiled its own semi prototype last month.“These are business people, not fans, and they will need convinced that this truck is better for their balance sheet than existing technology. It probably is, based on the specs provided, but this isn’t necessarily a slam dunk,” said Rebecca Lindland, an executive analyst at Kelley Blue Book. COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS Buy It! Princess Diana’s humble little 1981 Ford Escort is up for auction An engagement gift from Prince Charles, the car is being sold by a Princess Di “superfan” Musk said Tesla will guarantee the semi’s powertrain for one million miles to help alleviate customers’ concerns. The truck will have Tesla’s Autopilot system, which can maintain a set speed and slow down automatically in traffic. It also has a system that automatically keeps the vehicle in its lane. Musk said several Tesla semis will be able to travel in a convoy, autonomously following each other. Tesla is also planning a worldwide network of solar-powered “megachargers” that could get the trucks back up to 400 miles of range after charging for only 30 minutes.The move fits with Musk’s stated goal for the company of accelerating the shift to sustainable transportation. Trucks account for nearly a quarter of transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., according to government statistics.But the semi also piles on more chaos at the Palo Alto, California-based company. Tesla is way behind on production of the Model 3, a new lower-cost sedan, with some customers facing waits of 18 months or more. It’s also ramping up production of solar panels after buying Solar City Corp. last year. Tesla is working on a pickup truck and a lower-cost SUV, and negotiating a new factory in China. Meanwhile, the company posted a record quarterly loss of US$619 million in its most recent quarter.On Thursday night, Tesla surprised fans with another product: An updated version of its first sports car, the Roadster. Tesla says the new Roadster will have 620 miles of range and a top speed of 250 mph (402 km/h). The car, coming in 2020, will have a base price of $200,000.Musk, too, is being pulled in many directions. He leads rocket maker SpaceX and is dabbling in other projects, including high-speed transit, artificial intelligence research and a new company that’s digging tunnels beneath Los Angeles to alleviate traffic congestion.

After more than a decade of making cars and SUVs — and, more recently, solar panels — Tesla wants to electrify a new type of vehicle: Big trucks.The company unveiled its new electric semitractor-trailer Thursday night near its design centre in Hawthorne, California. CEO Elon Musk said the semi is capable of travelling 500 miles (804 kilometres) on an electric charge — even with a full 80,000-pound (36,287-kilogram) load — and will cost less than a diesel semi considering fuel savings, lower maintenance and other factors. Musk said customers can put down a $5,000 deposit for the semi now and production will begin in 2019.“We’re confident that this is a product that’s better in every way from a feature standpoint,” Musk told a crowd of Tesla fans gathered for the unveiling.
