NSA chief: Internet 'at great risk,' needs defense system

7 hrs.

General Keith Alexander, head of the National Security Agency, addressed an audience at the Defcon hacking conference in Las Vegas Friday, saying the Internet needed fundamental defenses against foreign incursion.

It's the first time an NSA official has spoken at the world-famous conference, where the attendees are often engaged in unquestionably illegal activities like attempting to breach the security of government agencies. But General Alexander seemed to regard them as kindred spirits as well as experts.

"Sometimes you guys get a bad rap. From my perspective, what you're doing to figure out vulnerabilities in systems is great," he told the crowd, according to a report from CNET.

But it wasn't all civilities. Alexander said that the Internet as it is today is "at great risk from exploitation, disruption and destruction." Tracking Internet activity is a massive task and even the NSA can't do it without some kind of fundamental access.

He compared the Internet's traffic to a toll?highway, and said he'd like the NSA to act as the monitor. Most traffic would barely be paid attention to, like a car with an "EZ Pass" cruising through without being stopped. But suspicious traffic would be identified and tracked.

As MIT's Technology Review points out, NSA has prototyped a version of an Internet monitoring system, with 17 defense contractors participating. If an internal alarm is tripped, presumably in the event of a breach, telemetry from the event is relayed automatically to the NSA. Alexander would like to see something like this applied more broadly.

Naturally an audience of hackers would be skeptical of giving a government agency such broad access to all the U.S.'s Internet traffic, but Alexander assured them that their interest was strictly to investigate threats from abroad. "Our job is foreign intelligence. We get oversight by Congress," he said, also taking time to say that recent reports that the NSA had a file on every American citizen were "absolute nonsense."

He also exhorted the audience of technically proficient hackers to get involved. With a tacit nod to the bumbling efforts of some legislators in regulating the Internet and security issues, he suggested that the Defcon attendees should be helping from the inside, not just taking pot shots at it from outside.

General Alexander is head of perhaps the largest and most invasive intelligence and security agency in the world, and whether it's?despite that or because of that, his overtures to the hacking community seem reasonable. He and the occasionally lawless?hackers may in some ways seem to be natural enemies, but?as one hacker told MIT, when it comes to advancing the field of cybersecurity, "Our interests overlap."

US team expects tough challenge in chase for gold

LONDON (AP) ? It's go time for the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team. It's gold time.

The challenging exhibition schedule is over, marching in the opening ceremony is already a memory and the Olympic flame is burning brightly.

"We're ready," said coach Mike Krzyzewski.

They'd better be. Don't expect any opponents asking for photographs or autographs ? there are teams here that feel they can beat the Americans.

Although heavily favored to win the 12-nation tournament and capture gold just as they did four years ago in Beijing, the superstar-studded U.S. squad will face a talented field loaded with NBA players.

On Sunday, the U.S. opens pool play against France, an experienced squad led by San Antonio guard Tony Parker, who nearly missed the London Games because of a serious eye injury. Parker's ability to break down defenses and create in the open floor could pose an early problem for the Americans. And he's not the only headache for the U.S. as France's roster includes Ronny Turiaf, Boris Diaw, Nicolas Batum, Kevin Seraphin and Nando de Colo ? all currently on NBA rosters.

"It's a big test for us," U.S. forward Carmelo Anthony said, lacing up his sneakers Saturday before practice at East London University. "We're going up against guys that we normally play on a night-to-night basis, and those countries have put them all together just like we have. And at the end of the day their main goal is to beat the United States.

"There's going to be some good battles."

France will only be the first. This isn't going to be some easy sightseeing stroll along the Thames for the American team before stepping onto the gold-medal stand. Spain, Argentina and Brazil are all talented enough to not only compete with the U.S., but potentially upset the world's No. 1 team.

That wasn't the case four years ago, when the U.S. steamrolled through the field, winning by at least 20 points in each of its first seven games before beating Spain 118-107 in the final. Krzyzewski, who guided the 2008 "Redeem Team" to gold, believes a potential road to gold could have some dangerous bumps.

"The overall 12 teams are more talented, more seasoned," he said. "Spain is just in the prime of their ? 28, 29 (years of age). Brazil is in that wheelhouse. I think Russia's really, really good. Obviously Argentina, everyone says they're older but their heart and talent has not gotten older, It's just gotten better.

"There's just more teams that feel that they have a chance to win the gold medal ? and medal ? than they did in '08."

Count the French among them. They finished second to Spain at last year's European Championships, and maintain they won't be intimidated by the U.S. team's collection of All-Stars, MVPs and household names. France's players have no intention of being posterized on a dunk by LeBron James or Kobe Bryant the way 7-foot-2 countryman Frederic Weis was famously embarrassed by a soaring Vince Carter in the 2000 Sydney Games.

France, 0-4 against the U.S. in Olympic competition, isn't frightened.

"For us there is no fear factor because we play against them all the time," said Parker, who will wear goggles to protect his surgically repaired left eye. "We know they are really, really good. But it's not going to be like the other teams where they don't see them and it's like, 'Oh, wow, I'm playing against Kobe and LeBron.'"

Bryant likened France's offense to the one Parker runs with the Spurs. Everything starts with the ball in Parker's hands, so the U.S. team's challenge will be to make him give it up.

"Slow him down and surround him," Bryant said. "Keep bodies in front of him at all times."

This U.S. team, comprised of five holdovers from the '08 squad, five from the 2010 world championship team and two newcomers, was loose and relaxed before Saturday's workout, a final tune-up before beginning the five-game preliminary round. Durant and Anthony playfully horsed around in the foul lane and Bryant smiled amusingly as photographers jockeyed for position like paparazzi trying to record his every move.

The mood will be decidedly different Sunday.

That's when everything change. That's when it matters.

"Everybody expects us to win gold," James said. "And that's what we're here for. Nothing else."

In recent days, Bryant, James and the other U.S. players have been careful not to get trapped into making comparisons to the Dream Team. Bryant recently caused a stir by saying the 2012 Olympians could beat the 1992 version that included Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.

Jordan called Bryant's comments "not one of the smarter things he ever could have done."

For now, the talk has quieted, the comparisons can wait. For this American team to be regarded among the others before them, there can only be one medal.

"The legacy will be determined if you win the gold or you don't," Krzyzewski said. "We're not talking about legacy everyday but it is. We're here to win a gold medal, and if we do less than that, then it will be a big loss for us."

There were some pretty sad-looking people cycling out of central London after Mark Cavendish failed in his bid to win the men's road race.

But at least one group of Brits must be grinning from ear to ear Saturday: the bookmakers.

I bet (sorry) they took a lot of cash on the misfiring Manx Missile. They must surely have cleaned up Friday night when opening ceremony director Danny Boyle picked seven unknown young athletes to light the Olympic cauldron instead of heavily favored four-minute-miler Roger Bannister.

'Kabul I love you' brings Afghan woes to the big screen

A decade after the fall of the cinema-hating Taliban, a group of Afghan directors have created a film love letter to their capital, rooted in the grim reality of everyday life in the war-torn city.

Forced marriage, people smuggling, illegal land grabs, land mines and ethnic conflict -- life in Kabul is not short of problems, and "Kabul I Love You" explores them through 10 interwoven stories.

Afghanistan's film industry was hammered by 17 years of war after the Soviet invasion in 1979 and was snuffed out entirely under the extreme rule of the Taliban.

During their 1996-2001 regime, the hardliners closed cinemas and hung televisions from lampposts, regarding all images as un-Islamic. Even sculptures were targeted, with the famous giant Buddhas of Bamiyan paying the price.

Now Afghan cinema is struggling to re-emerge amid a wrecked economy and an ongoing insurgency against the Western-backed government of President Hamid Karzai.

Afghanistan produces around 100 films a year, according to documentary-maker Malek Shafi'i, but they are shot on tiny budgets and are often very poor.

"Kabul I Love You" has been funded by the UN mission in Afghanistan, UNAMA, as a means of giving the country's cinema a boost.

Ario Soltani, from UNAMA, says the idea was to encourage film-makers to develop their own ideas.

"We wanted to reach the film-makers, to support them, to communicate with Afghan people," he said.

"Not with our messages but with theirs. We hope they reflect the Afghan society and the Afghan ideas of that time."

The funding project was not an unqualified success -- one of the 11 directors chosen from 200 applicants fled the country as soon as he got his hands on UNAMA's $8,000, while another left for Iran after being threatened.

But despite these setbacks, the film was shot and got a warm reception when it was screened at the French cultural centre in Kabul in May.

The directors are raw and parts of the film betrayed their lack of experience -- exaggerated characters, hammy dialogue and deathly slow pace.

But others showed real flair, with the modest, restrained dialogue of Farhad Razae's segment, a bitter denunciation of forced marriage, a highlight.

In the short section, titled "Virgin Towers", the caretaker of a mosque learns that a pretty young woman in his place of worship has fled her family to escape marrying one of her relatives.

The young woman, denounced by a neighbour, ends up running from the police. Her heavy breath and field of vision restricted by the burqa she wears to hide herself allow the viewer to feel the horror of the condition of women in Afghanistan.

Rezae said he based the film on experiences he had as a young man looking after a mosque.

"During that time, a girl was coming for prayers. She would rest in the mosque two hours after the prayers. I wanted to know who this girl is, but I was ashamed and because of religion, I never asked her what her problems were," said Rezae.

Shafi'i hailed Rezae's achievement, saying he had "managed to get closer to Afghan realities" than other film-makers.

Writers and artists have been pushing boundaries in what remains an extremely conservative society in the past five years, Shafi'i said.

"Now, people have started to realise that if they cross borders, nothing will happen to them," he said.

NATO forces are due to depart Afghanistan by the end of 2014 and the precarious security situation they will leave behind is not likely to be conducive to this dream of artistic growth.

Saying "Kabul I Love You" is a message of hope from these budding film-makers for their future.

Treasury yields rise as investors return to stocks

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose Thursday as investors became more willing to risk putting money into the stock market.

Stocks soared after the European Central Bank president vowed to "do whatever it takes" to keep the continent's monetary union intact.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 1.44 percent late Thursday. That was up from 1.40 percent the day before, though it's still extremely low by historical standards. On Tuesday the yield hit an all-time low of 1.39 percent.

The yield represents the interest rate the U.S. government has to pay to persuade investors to buy its debt. When investors are more confident about the economy, yields fall because investors take money out of safe-haven investments like government bonds and put it into riskier assets like stocks.

The price of the 10-year Treasury fell 34 cents for every $100 invested. The price moves inversely to the yield.

In other trading, the yield on the 30-year bond rose to 2.50 percent from 2.46 percent. The price fell $1 for every $100 invested.

The yield on the two-year note rose to 0.22 percent from 0.21 percent. The three-month T-bill's yield held steady at 0.10 percent.

Greek Athlete Tossed From Olympic Team for Offensive Remarks ...

(CNN) ? Greek athlete Voula Papachristou has been expelled from that nation?s Olympic team for posting an offensive comment about African immigrants on Twitter, a team spokeswoman said Wednesday.

?With so many Africans in Greece, the mosquitoes from the West Nile will at least be eating some homemade food,? Papachristou said on Twitter.

The Hellenic Olympic Committee ruled Papachristou, a triple jumper, would be barred from participating in the London Olympics that begin Friday.

?She made a mistake but it was serious,? the spokesman said. ?It was unforgivable.?

Papachristou apologized for making the remarks about African immigrants but her medal hopes were gone.

?I would like to express my heartfelt apologies for the unfortunate and tasteless joke I published on my personal Twitter account,? she wrote on Facebook. ?I am very sorry and ashamed for the negative responses I triggered, since I never wanted to offend anyone, or to encroach human rights.

?My dream is connected to the Olympic Games and I could not possibly participate if I did not respect their values. Therefore, I could never believe in discrimination between human beings and races.?

Papachristou?s Twitter post drew public criticism and calls for her to be tossed from the Greek Olympic team.

Two of the three parties forming Greece?s coalition government also issued statements on the matter.

The Democratic Left said that ?this racist humor and ?jokes? that affect human lives are not tolerated by Greek society, (and) they cannot flourish in Greek athletics.?

The socialist PASOK party said ?matters that are to do with the human status should not be treated lightly by anyone and especially from the members of the sports community, who are symbols to young people.?

Greek media reported that Papachristou has in the past posted comments about the extreme right wing Golden Dawn party.

By calling professionals trained to get of these bugs, you greatly lower the risk of anyone in your family becoming sick. Roaches leave behind filth that can allow the contraction of serious diseases.

Rodents can cause damage in your home in several ways. These creatures chew up important documents and tear up expensive wallpaper.

Apple's rivals swoop as iPhone China sales flag

HONG KONG/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Apple Inc's disappointing China sales suggest that its customers will not always wait for the next iPhone when rivals such as Samsung have plenty of flashy new models available now, analysts and resellers said on Wednesday.

China is Apple's second-largest market, and its rabid fans have been known to seek out smugglers just to get their hands on the latest gadgets before they officially go on sale in Beijing and Shanghai stores.

But an iPad 3 launch in China last week did not generate the normal buying frenzy, and lackluster April-to-June sales of the iPhone 4S have some analysts questioning whether Apple products are losing their status as the must-have accessory for China's hip and affluent.

"The (iPhone 4S) model is a little bit too long in the tooth when compared to other phones with better specs," said TZ Wong, a Beijing-based analyst from research firm IDC.

"To put it plainly, consumers are getting a little bit tired of the look of the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S."

Apple's sales from greater China, which includes Taiwan and Hong Kong, totaled $5.7 billion for its third quarter ended June, an unexpectedly steep drop of $2.2 billion from the January-March period.

Apple's quarterly results pressured shares of its Asian suppliers on Wednesday, with Taiwan's Hon Hai and South Korea's LG Display ending more than 4 percent lower, while Japan's Toshiba fell more than 7 percent.

Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, told analysts that about half of the quarter-to-quarter decline stemmed from "changes in the inventory channel" rather than weak sales of its iPhone 4S, which analysts took to mean that Apple had built up excess inventory in the first three months of the year.

That extra inventory meant resellers did not need to buy as many iPhones in the April-June period. The iPhone 5 is expected to be released later this year, with enhanced Chinese language capabilities, so that likely contributed to resellers' slower orders of the 4S as well.

Cook also pointed out that iPhone 4S sales were very strong in China over the first three months of this year, so there was probably some drop-off in demand after that period.


Consumers in China, which has the world's largest number of mobile subscribers, were spoilt for choice with a slew of new phones available over the past few months from brands such as Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and HTC Corp.

Samsung, which flagged a record quarterly profit of $5.9 billion earlier this month, saw stronger-than-expected demand for its latest Galaxy S III model, while HTC's One X also gained popularity among phone users globally, including the greater China region.

"The S III and One X are outselling the iPhone now because people like their wider screens, better cameras and the apps are pretty good," said a salesperson at an electronics store in Hong Kong that carries phones from Apple, Samsung, HTC and Nokia Ojy.

New smartphones made by China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, ZTE Corp and Xiaomi were also hot sells, in part because the price was right. They are heavily subsidized by China's three telecom carriers.

Apple is expected to release its next iPhone around October, according to sources, about a year after the launch of the 4S, which was a hot seller in the first three months of 2012 and helped to drive Apple's stellar earnings in that period.

There was one hitch for Chinese consumers, however: Siri, the voice-activated personal assistant program that was a popular selling point globally for the 4S, does not speak Mandarin or Cantonese, which are widely spoken in mainland China and Hong Kong.

The iPhone 5 version of Siri will have those language skills, according to sales staff in an Apple store in Shanghai's Pudong financial district, which a Reuters reporter visited on Wednesday. That is one more reason for Chinese customers to hold off until the new phone is available.

"Since iPhone 5 will come out soon, operators don't want to buy in any more iPhone 4S as they will add to the inventory," said Ming Chi Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities.

Randy Turner: The Aurora Shooting and the Snake Oil Peddlers of the NRA

In an era when we have hundreds of documented cases of discrimination against people for their sex, religion, or sexual preference, and live in a society where the difference between the haves and have-nots is becoming more pronounced with the passing of each day, the Missouri House of Representatives actually considered a bill to stop discrimination against the most aggrieved group of all -- gun owners.

Rep. Wanda Brown, R-Lincoln, sponsored HB 1621, which said, "It will be unlawful employment practice to discriminate against an individual because he or she has a conceal/carry endorsement or uses a firearm for a lawful purpose."

As far as I can tell, no one has been able to produce a single instance of such discrimination, but in the middle of a session which was supposed to be about jobs (and of course wasn't), this was considered to be so important that it breezed through the House and through a Senate committee before falling short in the logjam of the final days of the 2012 session.

This bill, which most assuredly will return in 2013, follows a long pattern of action in Missouri and in state legislatures across the United States. Year after year, the National Rifle Association sounds the drumbeat that someone is trying to take away our Second Amendment rights, works its membership into a frenzy and continues to justify its existence and, more importantly, raise dues.

The shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida earlier this year brought much attention to the Stand Your Ground laws, which began with the NRA shoving through cookie-cutter Castle Doctrine (or Frontier Justice) laws written by the American Legislative Exchange Council and then passed off by local legislators as their own, which allow people to use deadly force if their lives are threatened.

When the Castle Doctrine bill was first introduced in Missouri, I pointed out that Missourians already had the right to use deadly force if their lives are threatened, but proponents of the bill cited horror stories of lawsuits brought by those who were shot and instances in which people were arrested simply for defending themselves against attackers.

They were never specific when they were telling these horror stories, however. I repeatedly challenged Castle Doctrine supporters to tell me of one instance in which their nightmare scenarios had come to pass. Years later, I sm still waiting to hear from them.

At that time, the bill's sponsor Sen. Jack Goodman, R-Mount Vernon, told KY3's Dave Catanese (now a reporter for Politico) there had been some cases in Missouri, not many, but some that fit into that category, but none in the southwest Missouri area he represented, and further pressed by Catanese, he could not name any specific cases from anywhere else in the state.

Before Castle Doctrine, it was the push for conceal/carry laws.

The National Rifle Association has now made it almost impossible to stop average citizens from buying the kind of weapons that no American needs for hunting or for protection -- the kinds of weapons James Holmes had in Aurora.

I am sick of hearing the NRA and its supporters say, "Guns don't kill people, people do." Absolutely, but why in God's name do we have to make it that much easier for them to do so?

And after every incident of this nature, the Aurora shooting, the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords, Virginia Tech, anyone who dares bring up the idea of a common sense approach to this problem is accused of trying to capitalize on tragedy.

And it works. The drumbeat begins again from the NRA and its snake-oil peddlers claiming that President Obama or some other political bogeyman is trying to use the deaths, "the act of one deranged individual," they always say, to take away the citizens' right to bear arms.

They wrap themselves in the American Flag and the Constitution, and soon, the clamor for an answer to the senseless gun violence that has become more and more prevalent in our society dies down and the NRA can begin creating another non-existent attack on gun rights and issue the clarion call for more money to battle those evil liberals who are lurking around every corner ready to grab their guns.

There was a time when the NRA actually stood as a voice of reason when it came to Second Amendment rights. When bans on assault weapons were proposed, the organization did not always oppose them.

The leadership of today's NRA is still accepting dues from its membership, which consists of people who want the freedom to use guns for hunting and protection, freedoms they have and will continue to have no matter how many times they claim those rights are being threatened.

By continuing to cry wolf and by using their political clout to silence those who oppose them, the NRA is opening the door to more gun violence.

But the membership dues will keep coming.

Trillium Skating Academy: Programs for on-ice healthy child - Typepad

Ice skating is one of Canada?s greatest past-times and often becomes a fond memory for thousands of families to share for generations. Trillium Skating Academy(TSA), with its unique learn-to-skate programs developed by Lisa Himmelman in 2011, provides high quality and affordable learn-to-skate programs in a fun, safe, and non-competitive environment for children ages three and up.

Trillium Skating Academy was developed in order to make it easier and more affordable for all children to learn how to skate. TSA is a great starting point for children who want to learn whether it be for recreational purposes or to play hockey, ringette, or figure skate.

?Many families simply cannot afford to spend hundreds of dollars and travel all over the city to have their five-year old to learn how to skate,? said Lisa.

TSA helps to solve that problem by offering programs with no membership fees or fundraising and by offering year-round programming at a variety of locations throughout the tri-cities. Skaters who progress through the Kinder Skate and Youth Skate programs can advance on to such classes as Intro-to-Hockey, Ringette or Figure Skating. These programs are offered in private, semi-private and small groups.

Trillium Skating Academy is committed to ensuring that the leadership of its programs is of the highest quality. Leader candidates demonstrate: a keen interest in, and experience working with children; an understanding of the various aspects of child development; a caring attitude when working with children and recognized certification in first-aid. TSA?s coaches are NCCP certified and registered members of the Coaches Association of Ontario with a variety of skating backgrounds including figure skating, hockey, and ringette.

?We are anticipating a very busy fall season as more people in the tri-cities get to know about who Trillium Skating Academy is. Our programs offer something very new to the skating world, and once parents see how much fun their kids are having, while staying active and learning some important life skills, I think they will be very excited to enroll their kids in our programs,? said Lisa.

Visit for schedules, locations and registration information.


TSA is proud to be committed to healthy child development through the implementation of the five HIGH FIVE? principles; a caring adult, opportunities to make friends, opportunities to participate and opportunities to play and master skills.

HIGH FIVE? is Canada?s only comprehensive quality standard for organizations providing recreation and sports programs for children aged 6 to 12. The HIGH FIVE? vision is that ?through sustained involvement in quality recreation and sport activities, all children are experiencing healthy development.?

More coaches needed for our fall programs

We are looking for caring, passionate individuals who have experience working with children and a background in skating. We offer opportunities for future coaches to become certified and take part in our Coach-In-Training program. Contact Lisa Himmelman, Director, Trillium Skating Academy at or 519-954-1609

Lisa Himmelman

Lisa Himmelman?s professional figure skating career as a coach began in 2000 as a Professional Figure Skating Coach when, after 10 years of competing as a singles skater, she wanted to find a way to stay involved in her sport. Lisa quickly developed a passion for coaching and travelled all over the country to develop and improve her coaching skills. Originally from Southwestern Ontario, Lisa has held a variety of coaching positions in places such as Banff, Canmore, Yellowknife, Corner Brook, and Toronto. Her coaching certifications include NCCP Level 2 Professional Figure Skating Coach, CanFit Pro Personal Training Specialist and a Bronze Level Youth Sport Conditioning Coach. Throughout her travels and experiences with various clubs, Lisa developed a keen sense for what parents want and what children need in their recreational programs.
