  • Putin 'told Trump that Russian hackers are too good to get caught'

    Putin 'told Trump that Russian hackers are too good to get caught'Vladimir Putin reportedly told Donald Trump that if Russian hackers had infiltrated Democratic groups, they would have been too good to have been caught. According to the New York Times, Mr Putin told Mr Trump during their G20 meeting that "Moscow’s cyber-operators are so good at covert computer-network operations that if they had dipped into the computer systems, there is no way they could have been detected". Since then Trump has shared this claim with his team, his communications director Anthony Scaramucci has said.

  • China to launch unhackable quantum messaging service

    China to launch unhackable quantum messaging serviceChina is preparing to launch a communications system that would be impossible to hack. The quantum communication system is set to be used by 200 users from government, finance and military personal in the city of Jinan.  The Jinan Institute of Quantum Technology said the technology, which was tested earlier this month, is expected to be put into commercial use in August. The network uses quantum key distribution to transmit messages. The connections are far more secure than current internet or telephone cables, which can be tapped and monitored. China is creating a 2000km quantum network from Shanghai to Beijing Credit: Alamy Quantum networks, unlike traditional systems, send messages embedded in particles of light. If any third party attempts to hack the network the quantum nature of the particles will alter the communication and cause it to be aborted, meaning the message is impossible to read or intercept. "We plan to use the network for national defence, finance and other fields, and hope to spread it out as a pilot that if successful, can be used across China and the whole world,” said Zhou Fei, assistant director of Jinan Institute of Quantum Technology, the Financial Times reported. The development of the quantum network is the latest demonstration of China's scientific stature. It comes after the Chinese Government earlier this month said it plans to be the global leader in artificial intelligence by 2030.  China has been building an impenetrable, "hack-proof" computer network since 2014. Last year it launched a "hack-proof" communications satellite.  China's 'impenetrable' computer network explained 01:13 The quantum communications network, which will be the longest in the world, will travel 2,000km from Beijing to Shanghai and pass through a message hub in Jinan. More secure communications are needed as it is thought current encryption systems will be rendered obsolete by the sheer power of advanced quantum computers. The new Jinan network cost £15 million to develop and is capable of encrypting 4,000 pieces of data a second, according to the China Daily. China's obsession with security does not extend to many of its citizens. Last week, WhatsApp users in the country reported they had been blocked from sending videos or pictures. China's block on many internet giants and social networks has been dubbed the Great Firewall. What is quantum computing?

  • Chinese jets intercept U.S. surveillance plane: U.S. officials

    Chinese jets intercept U.S. surveillance plane: U.S. officialsBy Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two Chinese fighter jets intercepted a U.S. Navy surveillance plane over the East China Sea at the weekend, with one jet coming within about 300 feet (91 meters) of the American aircraft, U.S. officials said on Monday. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said initial reports showed one of the Chinese J-10 aircraft came close enough to the U.S. EP-3 plane on Sunday to cause the American aircraft to change direction. The Pentagon said the encounter between the aircraft was unsafe, but added that the vast majority of interactions were safe.




  • Japan woman dies of tick disease after bitten by sick cat

    Japan woman dies of tick disease after bitten by sick catA Japanese woman has died from a tick-borne virus after being bitten by a stray cat in what is possibly the world's first animal-to-human transmission of the disease. Authorities have since confirmed that she developed SFTS, a disease transmitted by bites from a certain group of virus-carrying ticks. Human-to-human infections of the tick virus through blood contact have been reported, but ministry officials believe the Japanese woman's death could be the first case of a human dying from the bite of an infected animal.

  • Richard Dawkins hits back at cancellation of Berkeley event for 'abusive speech against Islam'

    Richard Dawkins hits back at cancellation of Berkeley event for 'abusive speech against Islam'Richard Dawkinswants "a public apology" from a California radio station that cancelled an event with the scientist because of his “abusive speech against Islam”. The influential academic and writer was scheduled to speak about his memoir A Brief Candle in the Dark at an event organised by Berkeley’s KPFA Radio next month. But KPFA has now cancelled the talk, citing his "hurtful speech" against Islam.  “We had booked this event based entirely on his excellent new book on science, when we didn’t know he had offended and hurt – in his tweets and other comments on Islam – so many people," KPFA wrote in an email to ticket buyers. KPFA exercises its free speech right not to participate with anyone who uses hateful language against a community already under attack. https://t.co/nTC1LYQKiG— KPFA Radio (@kpfa) July 21, 2017 "KPFA does not endorse hurtful speech. While KPFA emphatically supports serious free speech, we do not support abusive speech. We apologise for not having had broader knowledge of Dawkins’s views much earlier. We also apologise to all those inconvenienced by this cancellation.” Residents had reportedly highlighted statements made by the evolutionary biologist and confirmed atheist, including a 2013 tweet saying "Islam is the greatest force for evil in the world today". @ToddKincannon I think Islam is the greatest force for evil in the world today. I've said so, often and loudly.What are you talking about?— Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) March 1, 2013 Professor Dawkins responded to the radio station in an open letter published on his website, saying he had lived in Berkeley for two years  and had appreciated KPFA's  "objective reporting and humane commentary".  "It was therefore a matter of personal sorrow to me to receive this morning your truly astonishing 'justification' for de-platforming me," he wrote. “You conspicuously did not quote a source when accusing me of ‘abusive speech’. Why didn’t you check your facts – or at least have the common courtesy to alert me – before summarily cancelling my event?” This is so stupid. Oh and by the way, my entire family is Muslim. Oh and Muslims aren't weak little children. They can hear other views.— Fouad (@fouadalnoor) July 22, 2017 Professor Dawkins said that he had “never used abusive speech against Islam”, explaining that while he had previously called Islamism “vile”, Islamism is not the same as Islam. “I have criticised the appalling misogyny and homophobia of Islam, I have criticised the murdering of apostates for no crime other than their disbelief. Far from attacking Muslims, I understand – as perhaps you do not – that Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism, especially Muslim women,” the author wrote.  Dawkins 'not certain' God does not exist 01:31 Urging the radio station to find examples of the abusive speech, he added: "When you fail to discover any, I presume you will issue a public apology." Professor Dawkins' bestselling book about the study of evolution, The Selfish Gene, was named the most influential science book of all time last week by the Royal Society. Berkeley, historically known as the home of the Free Speech moment in the 1960s, has hit the headlines in recent months over the cancellations of other controversial speakers. An event for alt-right figure Milo Yiannopoulos was cancelled in February by the University of California after clashes involving far-left protesters, as was a speech by conservative pundit Ann Coulter.

  • WRX STI Type RA NBR achieves incredible Nurburgring lap time

    WRX STI Type RA NBR achieves incredible Nurburgring lap timeThere's no getting away from what a stunning piece of technology and automotive engineering the Porsche 918 Spyder was when it was revealed to the world a couple of years ago, and it was no surprise when it put in an amazing lap time at the world famous Nurburgring. It's only right then that we would have expected a genuine challenge to that lap time to come from some equally advanced hybrid hypercar, but Subaru has come extremely close to beating the 918's time without an electric motor in sight with its WRX STI Type RA NBR. To be fair to both Porsche and Subaru, the WRX STI Type RA NBR isn't exactly your run-of-the-mill car by any means.

SEE ALSO: Parakeet only wants to be friends with birds, real or not, who look exactly like itself While playing around, Karin thought it'd be a wise idea to try and trap the kitten in the box, closing the lid on the feline. Perhaps feeling bad, Karin pulls open the box lid to let the kitten out — who returns the favour with a swipe on the parrot's head. But Karin has the last say to the rude cat, much to the amusement of its owner. The pair's owner keeps a blog of their happenings, and while it might be an unlikely friendship, they seem to get along just fine.  They're kinda cute, actually.
