firefox announces move to block cryptomining scripts

Firefox, the popular Web browser, will soon begin automatically blocking crypto mining malware scripts as part of a wider performance-enhancing push.
The Mozilla Foundation, the not-for-profit organization behind the open-source browser, said Thursday that it intends to block trackers and other “harmful practices” in upcoming releases.
Some of these features, such as the anti-tracking function, are already available in its Firefox Nightly beta version.
The goal is to prevent third-party scripts from hampering the user experience, according to Mozilla vice president of product Nick Nguyen. These scripts are generally embedded within websites and can commandeer a user’s computing power without their knowledge.
Scripts that hijack an individual’s unused computer power to mine cryptocurrencies also fall into this category.
“Deceptive practices that invisibly collect identifiable user information or degrade user experience are becoming more common,” Nguyen wrote, adding:
“For example, some trackers fingerprint users — a technique that allows them to invisibly identify users by their device properties, and which users are unable to control. Other sites have deployed cryptomining scripts that silently mine cryptocurrencies on the user’s device. Practices like these make the web a more hostile place to be. Future versions of Firefox will block these practices by default.”
The Firefox Nightly version will be used to test the functionality of the new features. And if successful, users may begin seeing them enabled by default in the Firefox 63 release.
Mozilla joins other browser developers, including Opera and Google, in trying to protect its users from malicious miners, which can slow down the user experience at best and damage their computers at worst.

Opera announced in January that it was rolling out miner protection to the smartphone version of its browser, which would also be active by default. The company already offered cryptominer protection on its desktop version.
Google, meanwhile, has banned any cryptomining apps from its Play Store, though it has not made any official statements regarding automatically blocking scripts embedded within websites.

The APC governorship candidate in the 2019 governorship election in Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, has been expelled by the party.

 

Disclosing this to newsmen this morning, the state Chairman of the party, Daniel Nwafor, said Uzodinma was expelled over his alleged anti-party activities. According to Nwafor, the expulsion became necessary to save the party from disintegration. Speaking to newsmen, Nwafor said

“Senator Hope has been sponsoring the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Senatorial candidate, Senator Osita Izunaso as against the APC Senatorial candidate in Imo West, Governor Rochas Okorocha, he has also been running parallel Exco in his Omuma Ward and issuing party cards without recourse to party Exco”.


A statement released by the party reads

''This is to inform you that the All Progressives Congress (APC) Omuma Ward of Oru East Local Government Area in Imo State has expelled Senator Hope Uzodinma from the party due to certain inordinate and anti-party activities perpetrated by him and his cohorts.

“The Imo State Working Committee (SWC) of our great party has examined the processes and procedures of the sanction on Senator Hope Uzodinma by his Ward as affirmed by the Local Government organ of the party in Oru East. Conclusively, the State Working Committee satisfied with the procedures and decision of Omuma Ward, hereby affirm the expulsion order as well”.

We are saving the party, we have an election in three weeks time and we cannot allow our governorship candidate to be sponsoring opposition candidates. We will no longer recognize Senator Hope Uzodinma as our governorship candidate because he is no longer a member of our party”.

We will not allow one candidate to jeopardize the chances of our other candidates who are vying for various positions across the state. We have communicated the National Working Committee of our party on our decision and we have also instructed all APC members in the state not to have anything to do with Senator Hope Uzodinma and his ambition forthwith”.

Seven years old boy recovering from hurt dogs attacked

 Update: 7-year-old boy savaged by a pack of dogs recovering in ICU

A seven-year-old boy is recovering from an unprovoked attack on Sunday by four stray dogs in the Ban Tha Noon area of Phang Nga’s Takua Thung district, Thailand.

“Nong D-Max” Chairap, has regained consciousness.

Many state officials, including Phuket deputy governor Prakob Wingmaneerung, Phuket Red Cross Society deputy head Rattiya Wongmaneerung and Takua Thung district chief Bancha Thanu-in, have also visited the boy’s family to give them moral support.

Acting hospital director Dr Weerasak Lorthongkham assigned three teams (paediatrics, general surgery and skin graft team) to treat him.
As the boy was apparently traumatised, a psychiatrist will later join in to assess his mental health, she said adding that the priority as of now was in treating the wounds and vital signa.

The boy’s aunt Preeda Maimad, 39, said she and two children used wooden sticks to fight off the four strays that were mauling Yeunyong but not before he had sustained about 100 deep bite wounds.

 

Yeunyong “Nong D-Max” Chairap,  who is being treated at Phuket’s Vachira Phuket Hospital’s intensive care unit, has a normal blood pressure but still requires constant medical surveillance to prevent possible infection.

The boy had emergency surgery on Sunday night for in-depth assessment of the deep wounds he suffered all over his body, including his face, arms and legs, said paediatrician Dr Natthawan Thepnarong

 Update: 7-year-old boy savaged by a pack of dogs recovering in ICU

The boy’s mother Lampaen Taemsi, 43, said the four stay dogs – one of which was reportedly once a pet dog but it became so fierce that its owner let it go – often roamed the seaside area in the back of her home and attacked chicken or a piglet and even once was hostile towards her children.

Lampaen has filed a complaint with the Khok Loy police and urged the authorities to help her son.

The four dogs in question were captured and locked up in a quarantine cage for seven-day observation, while tests are carried out to establish if they have rabies.

4 Men Arrested For Hacking Into A Bank Application, Stealing 466 Million In 2hour

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Kaduna Zonal Office on January 16, 2019 arraigned Bashir Abdullahi Mohammed, Oche Ogenyi, Adefila Taofile Kayode, Rabiu Aliko Lawal and Mmadu Mathew before justice Mohammed Tukur of a Kaduna State High Court, on a two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and stealing to the tune of N466, 000, 000 (Four Hundred and Sixty Six Million Naira) only.

They were arrested following a petition by Polaris Bank, alleging that they hacked into the bank’s application, and fraudulently increased the N781,000 in one of the customer’s bank account to N466 million.

One of the counts reads: “That you Bashir Abdullahi Mohammed, Oche Ogenyi, Adefila Taofile Kayode, Rabiu Aliko Lawal, Mmadu Mathew Onyekachi, and others now at large, sometime in 2018 in Kaduna within the judicial Division of the High Court, did conspire amongst yourselves to commit theft of the sum of N466 million and you thereby committed an offence contrary to 58(1) of the Penal Code Law Kaduna State 2017 and punishable under Section 59(1) of the same Law”.

They pleaded “not guilty” to the charges.
Prosecuting counsel, Onyeka Ekweozor, thereafter asked the court to fix a date for “commencement of trial”, and asked that they be remanded in EFCC custody.
“The defendants have separate charges before a Federal High Court pending arraignment, and remanding them in prison custody will make it difficult for the prosecution to arraign them,” he said.

Counsel for the first defendant, A. Ashat, in his oral bail application urged the court to grant his client bail, arguing that he will not jump bail.

According to reports, members of the group believed to be from Niger Republic are in possession of assorted weapons, preaching ISLAMIC teachings, forcefully collecting alms (zakat) and flogging defaulters.


An eye witness stated that though members of the terror group are yet to be identified by name, and have been in the area for than two months, they are allegedly recruiting youth in a nearby bush. After ‘training’ them, they give them a motorcycle, he said.



The witness, who pleaded anonymity, said members of the GROUP are more than 200. He said they looked strange, spoke Arabic and wore turbans over their heads.


“They imposed compulsory levies on each household with cows and rams. Those with cows are paying N500 and those with ram are paying N200. They are arresting and fining herdsmen who encroach on farmlands and are keeping the money. They are operating freely, scaring residents, without being challenged. They are going from one community to another,” the witness said.

Popular Italian filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci is dead

Bernardo Bertolucci
Bernardo Bertolucci, the Italian filmmaker whose sensual and visually stylistic movies ranged from intense chamber dramas to panoramic historical epics, died on Monday at his home in Rome. He was 77.

His death was confirmed by his wife, Clare Peploe, in a statement that did not specify the cause.

YOU MAY ALSO LIKEOlga Diyachenko full story

Mr. Bertolucci’s early work reflected the revolutionary spirit of the 1960s and ’70s, in particular the shifting social and sexual mores of the times. While several of his films delved into the traumas of his country’s recent past, he fashioned himself as a global auteur.

Coming of age as the Italian neorealist movement was on the wane, he drew inspiration from the French New Wave and routinely worked across borders and with international casts.

Many of Mr. Bertolucci’s films were warmly embraced by Hollywood. “The Last Emperor” (1987), a lavish biopic of Pu Yi, who became the emperor of China at the age of 3, won all nine Academy Awards for which it was nominated, including best picture and best director.

But Mr. Bertolucci’s best-known — and most controversial — film came earlier in his career: “Last Tango in Paris” (1972), an explicit depiction of the intense sexual relationship between a middle-aged American widower and a young Frenchwoman (played by Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider). A worldwide sensation and instant lightning rod, the film was lauded by some for pushing the boundaries of sexual representation, and denounced by others as misogynistic or pornographic.

“Last Tango” received an X rating, landed on the covers of Time and Newsweek, and earned $36 million at the United States box office alone. In Italy, the film was the subject of a protracted obscenity trial. In 1976, the Italian Supreme Court ordered all copies destroyed and handed Mr. Bertolucci a four-month suspended sentence.

Bernardo Bertolucci was born on March 16, 1941, in Parma, Italy, into an affluent, artistically inclined family. His father, Attilio, was a renowned poet and occasional film critic; his mother, Ninetta, taught literature. As a teenager, after the family had moved to Rome, he started making short films with a borrowed 16-millimeter camera.

At age 20, Mr. Bertolucci dropped out of the University of Rome when the opportunity arose to assist a neighbor and family friend, Pier Paolo Pasolini, on the set of Mr. Pasolini’s first feature, “Accattone” (1961).

Despite early success as a poet — a collection of his poetry won the prestigious Viareggio Prize in 1962 — Mr. Bertolucci chose to devote himself to cinema. Expanded from a story treatment by Mr. Pasolini, his directing debut, “The Grim Reaper,” about the murder of a prostitute in a Roman park, premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 1962.

If his first feature carried inevitable shades of Pasolini, Mr. Bertolucci came into his own with his second, “Before the Revolution” (1964). Loosely based on the Stendhal novel “The Charterhouse of Parma,” it describes the struggle of a young man torn between his bourgeois background and his radical aspirations.

For Mr. Bertolucci, the character’s conflict mirrored his own. “I was a Marxist with all the love, all the passion, and all the despair one can expect from a bourgeois who chooses Marxism,” he said in a 1965 interview with the magazine Cahiers du Cinéma.

“Before the Revolution” anticipated Mr. Bertolucci’s interest in exploring the intersections of the personal and the political, while also establishing his knack for inscribing autobiographical references in films adapted from literary sources. While the Italian reviews were mostly negative, the film was championed by French critics, who identified Mr. Bertolucci as a fellow traveler of the French New Wave.

The love was mutual. Mr. Bertolucci, who spent a month in Paris attending screenings at the Cinémathèque Française as a high school graduation gift, insisted on doing early interviews in French, which he called “the language of cinema.”

Learning From Godard
Even more than Mr. Pasolini, Jean-Luc Godard was an important early influence. Mr. Godard looms large over Mr. Bertolucci’s third, and most experimental, feature, “Partner” (1968), a reworking of Dostoevsky’s “Double,” in which a young man encounters his revolutionary doppelgänger.

In what he described as a pivotal moment in his creative life, Mr. Bertolucci began Freudian analysis in 1969. He spoke often and openly about the process, describing himself in a 1977 interview with The Washington Post as “a repressed person” who “can express my energy, my libido, my aggression, only in my work.”

Olga Diyachenko, the Russian  partner of Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, who is currently in Nigeria with her family took to Instagram to write about Nigerian women.

Read her post below.
Nigeria, what a surprise you've turned out be. ?? But, if I’m to say what impressed me most, it’s The Women. So much; grace, charisma and not a shred of insecurity. Nigerian women walk swaying their beautiful hips with their backs impeccably straight, heads held high, knowing their worth. Their attitude is strong, yet very sensual, regardless whether it’s a wealthy woman walking through a 5 star hotel or a young girl crossing the road at 7 AM rushing to work. Although may I say, Nigerian women do not rush, nor do they fidget, they simply glide.
The way Nigerian women preserve their culture and traditions is admirable. They don’t chase international designers or dress according to Vogue, they wear beautiful traditional dresses, dance the traditional dances and do it all with pride!
I hope Ava and Mia will inherit the calmness, sense of pride, posture and self worth that I’ve witnessed Nigerian women posses with such ease. Nigerian Women hat off to you

President Buhari vows to ensure corrupt leaders end up in jail

today-news
President Buhari has stated corrupt leaders that have stolen the wealth of the Nation will not escape going to jail. President Buhari said this today when he received a delegation of APC leaders from Benue state in the presidential villa, Abuja.
A statement from his media aide, Femi Adesina, quotes President Buhari saying that the misappropriations of funds meant for the development of the people is unjust and unfair to workers.
“I honestly don’t know how people sleep when workers have not been paid. The workers have to pay rent, buy food, send their children to school and they have healthcare to take care of. I assure you that my main interest is all Nigerians in all parts of the country. Therefore, if anybody who tries to create any impression that I prefer any group across ethnicity or religion let him dare me by being caught red handed stealing public funds.  I will deal with him’’ he said
President Buhari told the party leaders that the farmes and herdsmen clashes witnessed in Benue, Zamfara and Taraba, are being carried out by “ungodly’’ people who had no religious or ethnic inclinations.
“We know about herders. The ones we knew carried sticks, and sometimes cutlasses to cut foliage for their cattle. We now have people who carry AK 47s and pretend they are herdsmen.
