Supreme Court sides with GlaxoSmithKline in tax battle with Ottawa AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 18, 2012 5:03 pm MDT The Supreme Court of Canada has opened the door to allowing foreign multinational corporations to dodge their Canadian tax liabilities by siding with British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline in its 20-year tax battle with the federal government.The high court endorsed an appeals court ruling about “transfer pricing,” which allows multinationals to charge their subsidiaries high prices for ingredient costs in order to reduce Canadian profits.The Department of National Revenue had challenged Glaxo Canada’s use of a licence agreement that allowed it to pay Glaxo Swiss subsidiary Adechsa between $1,512 and $1,651 per kilogram for the purchase of ranitidine, the active ingredient in the anti-ulcer drug Zantac. Glaxo also paid parent company Glaxo Group a six per cent royalty on net sales of Zantac.The price of ranitidine exceeded the $194 to $304 per kilogram charged to Canadian generic pharmaceutical companies Apotex Inc. and Novopharm Inc. by arm’s-length suppliers.The government successfully argued in Tax Court that applying the “reasonable” charges to Glaxo Canada would have increased the subsidiary’s net income for 1990 to 1993 by $51 million.But the Federal Court of Appeal in July 2010 overturned the Tax Court’s decision and rejected the Department’s argument that fair market value paid by generics was the relevant measure. It sent the calculation back to the Tax Court for a redetermination.Writing for the Supreme Court, Justice Marshall Rothstein said in a ruling released Thursday that the Tax Court “erred in refusing to take account of the licence agreement.”“The generic comparators do not reflect the economy and business reality of Glaxo Canada and, at least without adjustment, do no indicate the price that would be reasonable in the circumstance, had Glaxo Canada and Adechsa been dealing at arm’s length.”The court declined to say whether the price paid by Glaxo Canada was fair and referred it back to the Tax Court for a recalculation.One of the relevant issues of the licence agreement not considered by the Tax Court was that Glaxo Group owned the intellectual property rights of Zantac, which commanded a premium over generics. Without the agreement, Glaxo wouldn’t have had access to the Zantac trademark or the parent company’s other products.GlaxoSmithKline welcomed the court ruling even though the Tax Court could still establish prices that boost its reported Canadian income and taxes.“We are pleased that the Supreme Court of Canada has agreed with the Federal Court of Appeal on the main appeal. As the case is still before the courts, we are not in a position to comment further,” spokeswoman Anna Robinson said in an email.Queen’s University tax law expert Art Cockfield said the ruling is a win for Glaxo and could prompt others to adopt sophisticated cross-border tax structures to shift profits to low-tax jurisdictions.“There’s massive flows going back and forth and companies have an incentive to game the system by shifting profits always to the lowest tax country,” he said in an interview from Kingston, Ont.“It’s negative for Canada because it supports aggressive international tax planning that sends revenues outside of the country.”Canada’s lower corporate tax rate than the United States could, however, insulate it from such profit shifts between companies with operations on both sides of the border, Cockfield added.Two-thirds of the $2 billion of daily trade between Canada and the United States is between related companies.The Department of National Revenue didn’t return calls seeking comment or estimates of how the Supreme Court’s ruling could potentially impact tax revenues.The Supreme Court’s ruling applies to a section of the tax code that was changed in the late 1990s. Consequently, Cockfield said it’s not clear whether other courts will use the ruling as a precedent for the principles that should apply in the new law.
Special Representative of the Secretary-General Said Djinnit made the statement following a ministerial meeting on security in Nigeria convened yesterday by United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary, William Hague. “Nigeria has been playing a pivotal role in promoting regional peace and security,” Mr. Djinnit noted, “and the UN is committed to its stability and the consolidation of its democratic achievements.”He also welcomed the support provided by partner countries, including on strengthening regional response against the activities of Boko Haram in the entire Lake Chad area, which also includes Chad, the Central African Republic, Nigeria, Sudan, Algeria, and Libya.According to the UN Office for West Africa (UNOWA), Mr. Djinnit extended the UN’s support to efforts of the National Emergency Management Agency and the National Human Rights Commission.He also highlighted a UN Integrated Support Package (ISP) to complement the Government’s efforts towards securing the safe release of the more than 200 girls seized from their school on 14 April, and to addressing related challenges.The Package includes immediate support to the affected families, the population and the girls after their release, in particular with psycho-social counselling and helping them reintegrate with their families and communities.The package also includes projects related to education, water supply and livelihoods.
For her part, Maxine Pamela Ometa McClean, Barbados’ Minister for Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, cautioned the Assembly about the ramifications of unchecked climate change, echoing past remarks on the existential threat faced by vulnerable small island developing States. She noted that for years many leaders from small islands have warned of the inherent danger to lives, livelihoods and the very existence of sovereign nations without the sufficient action taken to reduce global emissions and provide support for resilience building in vulnerable countries. “This clarion call from the Caribbean was ignored.” “Today,” she added “we bear witness to the results of this act of reckless indifference.” The Foreign Minister reported, not on a potential threat, but rather on the destructive impact of climate change on the globe, speaking specifically of the utter devastation of several small islands developing States in the Caribbean overwhelmed by an unprecedented wave of hurricanes. “For Barbados and other [small island developing States], whether in the Caribbean, the Pacific, Asia or Africa, climate change is a matter of life or death,” Ms. McClean underscored, saying that the issue is for sterile debates and endless meetings but about loss of life and livelihood. Full statement available here Also addressing the Assembly, Wilfred Elrington, Belize’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, pointed to security and climate change as equally fundamental threats to his country’s survival. “We have been at the forefront of the global fight to protect and preserve our shared natural environment against environmental degradation and climate change and to ensure sustainable use especially of our ocean which sustains life on earth” he said. He noted that the region is pioneering innovative approaches to build resilience and facilitate its transition to low and no carbon economies. Mr. Elrington stated that Belize has embraced the 2030 Agenda – launching its own strategy that integrates the SDGs and is complimentary to the Paris Agreement. Mentioning that Belize has met several goals on road safety, marine protection and sustainable fisheries, he said “already we are seeing the dividends of that early investment in policy and action.” Calling his country’s early accomplishments “mere benchmarks,” he explained that Belize knows that it must go “above and beyond” for its sustainable development. For that reason, it is setting even more ambitious targets. “At the Oceans Conference,” he said, “we announced our commitment to further strengthen the legislative and regulatory framework on fisheries; to increase marine reserves from three per cent to 10 per cent of our territorial waters; and to implement legislation to curb the use of plastics/microplastics.” “Belize is committed to zero emissions growth in its forestry sector and aims to achieve 85 per cent renewables in electricity production by 2027,” he added. Full statement available here “Today, it is a barefaced insult to the intelligence and experience of the peoples of Island States and coastal areas to call climate change a hoax,” the Deputy Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines told the Assembly as he took the podium. “Almost every year is hotter than the preceding one. Almost every hurricane season more intense. Almost every storm, drought and flood more destructive than the previous one,” said Louis Straker, pointing to the death and destruction wrought by the current hurricane season. “They are the manifestations of climate change; the symptoms of the prescient predictions made by the overwhelming majority of scientists,” he stressed, reaffirming that small island developing States are the most vulnerable to climate change, while contributing the least to the emissions that cause it. Turning to the Paris Agreement, the Deputy Prime Minister underscored that it views any attempt to disavow the agreement designed to arrest climate change and assist the most affected as an act of hostility, saying “we draw a direct, causal connection between any such abdication and the future death and destruction that island states face as the result of increasingly frequent and intense weather events.” Mr. Straker said his country puts the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the centre of its national development strategies. “In areas of climate change, pollution and biodiversity, we have banned Styrofoam products, banned the hunting of turtles, tightened restrictions on internationally permitted indigenous whaling activity, and implemented new coastal protection regulations,” he relayed, adding that by investing in geothermal and solar energy, it hopes to generate 80 per cent of its energy needs from renewable sources within the next three years. Full statement available here Allen Michael Chastanet told the Assembly that the UN’s promise to small island developing States is being tested today more than ever. “The world is experiencing extraordinary change at a breath-taking pace – change that is reshaping the way we live […] and the very nature of peace and security.” he said. Calling the intensification of extreme weather events the “new normal,” he recounted small islands’ repeated warnings that an inadequate response to climate change would condemn future generations to certain doom. “I daresay, we do not have the luxury to be silent on this front anymore – we must act,” he stressed. “Never forget that we are all in a symbiotic relationship, we should all be our brothers’ keeper,” said Mr. Chastanet, offering condolences to Mexico, which faces a mounting death toll from recent earthquakes. Noting that the world is increasingly integrated, and economies, natural environment and people are all connected, he said: “a disruptive event in one country begets similar or worse events in neighbouring countries, and spreads, impacting us all and testing our social, political and economic systems.” He maintained that the international community “must change with the times,” calling “unconscionable” the need to depend on commercial rates to rebuild broken economies. “The model has to change to allow the opportunity to build back stronger and more resilient, the infrastructure that can secure our futures and that of our people,” exhorted the President. He asked the Assembly to remember that we share a common future – “a future that will only be secure if we meet threats, challenges and opportunities together, with greater cooperation and understanding.” Full statement available here Wilfred Elrington, Attorney General and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade of Belize, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventy-second session.

It’s been about two weeks since Apple announced its iCloud service at WWDC, but two weeks is enough time to keep MobileMe customers wondering what services will transfer over to iCloud. Apple has now published a helpful FAQ to answer all those lingering questions that went unanswered during the WWDC keynote.Apple said MobileMe’s main services have been “rewritten to work seamlessly with iCloud.” For existing MobileMe customers, the services that won’t be sticking around after June 30, 2012 are iWeb, Gallery, and iDisk. Apple said it will continue support for iWeb publishing, posting, and viewing photos in the MobileMe Gallery, as well as reading and writing to iDisk cloud storage through June of 2012. Those services will be available for you even if you do decide to switch over to iCloud. However, after June 30, 2012, they’ll be gone.AdChoices广告For those hosting their web site with iWeb, you can continue publishing it to MobileMe through June 30, 2012 and easily move it to another web hosting service before the end of the month.If you do make the jump to iCloud before the June 2012 date, you won’t have access to MobileMe services including widgets, keychains, Dock items, syncing your dashboard, and System Preferences. Again, these will still be available for current MobileMe users, but if you decide to transfer to iCloud before June 2012, you will lose those features.Some people may be angry about losing these, but Apple is basically trimming the fat and said that iCloud will introduce new features that aren’t available in MobileMe. These include iTunes in the Cloud, Photo Stream, Documents in the Cloud, automatic downloads and purchase history for apps and books, and cloud backup and restore.You’ll be able to take commonly-used services like Mail, Contacts, and Calendar over to iCloud. These will be available via web apps, as will Find My iPhone, which is a handy tool to have in the event that you ever lose your phone. Having these features as web apps could be really useful when you’re away from your home computer and want to look up an email, for example.There is at least one nice thing about the iCloud transition; MobileMe users that have an account as of June 6, 2011 will have their service automatically extended through June 30, 2012 at no extra charge. You’ll also be able to keep your me.com or mac.com email address.Read more at Apple, via GigaOm

Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » As an entrepreneur, the one thing that I consistently wish for is for more hours in a day. Every startup has so many things to get done that getting all the boxes checked each day seems well-nigh impossible. However, I won’t give in to the friendly startup chaos. I’ve found ways to create time where there is none.Here are four secrets behind my time-stretching shenanigans.1. Zirtual.Zirtual is your very own personal assistant in cyberspace. Confused? Well, most small businesses are lean outfits with just enough people to get things going along smoothly. This means, having a personal assistant to run around doing time consuming chores is a luxury most small businesses can ill-afford.Zirtual offers small businesses exactly this in the form of a virtual assistant. With a Zirtual account, you can delegate non-productive tasks like filing invoices, chasing clients for payments, scheduling meetings into your calendar, making travel bookings, finding contact information for a potential client and so much more. With all your time-sinks out of the way, you now have all the time in the world to focus on what you do best — growing your business.2. LiquidSpace.LiquidSpace is, hands down, my favorite app to locate workspaces in any city in the world. The app offers freelancers, startups and small businesses the option of working in a shared office space without compromising on the quality of office infrastructure.It hunts down fully-outfitted workspaces to suit every kind of business need — from a single work desk to multiple desks, meeting rooms, conference rooms to private offices. No more wasting time running from one end of town to another in a new city for multiple meetings through the day.LiquidSpace is perfect for a startup with just a handful of team members who need to work together from a fully equipped, co-working space, or even for freelance consultants and coaches who want to schedule a client meeting or a training session. LiquidSpace gives you the option of renting spaces by the hour, per day or even on a monthly basis.Related: Office Space à la Carte Is on the Menu for Some Entrepreneurs3. CamCard.I used to dread attending trade events. Not because I am uncomfortable among large, milling crowds (I am), but because I would invariably end up with a stack of business cards from people I don’t even remember meeting. This card maze is not just a result of trade events. Even regular meetings with people in your office leads to a gigantic build-up of business cards that are never available when I need to make that all-important phone call from my car outside my apartment.CamCard puts an end to this mess that nearly every business owner has faced. All you need to do is take a picture of the business card you just received. CamCard reads the data on the card (in 16 different languages) and saves all the contact details for future use. The data for each contact gets updated instantly when your contact joins a new company or changes his number. Contact data is synced across all your devices making it available to you whenever you want it, wherever you want it. You can search for individual contacts in CamCard’s address book, add notes about a particular contact or even build your own virtual business card that you can share with your contacts.Related: 5 Reasons Business Cards Still Matter4. Flyp.Ever had those moments when you wanted to separate work from pleasure in every way possible? While it’s possible to have physically separate spaces for work and home, what would you do about your phone number? Getting two phones can be a real hassle and most people just resign themselves to using the same phone number for everything.Not anymore. With Flyp, you can now have a bunch of different phone numbers all parked inside a single phone. All your texts, voice messages and calls for each number get stored in one unified feed. Flyp also offers a unique voice-to-text feature that you can use to respond to callers when answering an incoming call is inconvenient.The real benefit of Flyp comes in its amazing flexibility. With a dedicated mobile number for work, you offer clients the option of reaching you outside of work hours. However, you still retain the choice of muting the business number when you are immersed in a family activity or don’t want to be disturbed.Related: The Jury Is Still Out on Texting for Professional Communication Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 4 min read June 30, 2015

Approximately seven to eight million CT examinations are performed for various pediatric clinical indications per year in the United States.Justification of clinical indication is the most important aspect of reducing radiation dose with CT scanning. A substantial number of pediatric CT scans lack appropriate justification or can be replaced with other imaging modalities with lower or no ionizing radiation, such as radiography, ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which can provide similar diagnostic information for some clinical conditions. “When not clinically indicated, not performing a CT examination is certainly the best radiation dose reduction strategy. However, when a CT scan is indicated, there are steps that can be taken to optimize the dose that children receive. It’s important that all imaging providers take these steps as indicated,” said Mannudeep K. Kalra, M.D., author of the article. Investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, in Boston, and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, reviewed practical strategies for reducing radiation dose associated with pediatric CT examinations. “Radiation dose reduction in children starts with the optimization of pediatric CT protocols,” said Mahadevappa Mahesh, MS, Ph.D., author of the article. “CT protocols should be strictly optimized on the basis of body size, body region, clinical indication and the availability of prior imaging.”Additional steps include using a lower tube current and voltage, restricting the scan length to include only the region of interest and using new techniques of image post-processing and reconstruction. “Children are more sensitive to radiation-induced risks and need special attention. Therefore, while designing CT protocols, it is crucial to keep clinical indications, weight and prior available imaging in mind to optimize radiation dose,” said Mahesh.

Each dot is a pencil beam location for proton energy deposition in the tumor. The colors represent the dose delivered. A few of the big takeaways from the American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2018 meeting in October were industry trends and advances in proton therapy technology. The key messages are that proton therapy systems are getting smaller, pencil beam therapy will likely become the standard of care in the coming years, and two new treatment methods may significantly cut treatment times and improve outcomes.The Shrinking Size of Proton SystemsIn speaking with vendors and according to experts in sessions, the trend in proton therapy has definitely swung toward smaller, compact, single-room proton therapy system installations and a movement away from large, multi-room treatment centers. This is in part due to the high cost of building a proton therapy center, which includes not just the system, but a specially tailored building to be constructed for the system to reside in. In speaking to Aymeric Harmant, IBA’s global marketing director for proton therapy, over the past year IBA and the other proton therapy vendors have reported only single-room system contracts being signed. The main reason for this is the cost of these systems and issues with getting enough referrals to make the systems profitable. He said one-room systems cost about $20 million and about $15 million more for the building. Multi-room systems cost upwards of $80 million. The vendors’ ability to create smaller-footprint cyclotrons has helped make smaller systems possible.At ASTRO, Varian introduced its new ProBeam 360 system, a single-room system that is 30 percent smaller than Varian’s previous-generation proton therapy system. The vendor also said the smaller footprint means the system can reduce vault construction costs by about 25 percent.In addition to smaller, single rooms, the technology is being simplified to make it easier for hospitals to use. “About 90 percent of people at ASTRO do not do proton therapy, so we are trying to show them that proton therapies are not as complex as they were 10 years ago,” Harmant explained.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The Movement to Pencil Beam Proton TherapyIn sessions, several speakers noted that proton therapy is moving rapidly toward pencil beam scanning (PBS) therapies and that all new systems being installed are pencil beam-capable. Speakers said pencil beams are easier to work with and more exact as to where the dose is being delivered, eliminating the need for traditional collimation. It also enables intensity modulated proton therapy (IMPT).Two New Methods to Speed Proton TherapyHowever, with a single treatment room, facilities are looking at how to increase patient throughput, especially as patient volume grows. Two new solutions to speeding up proton therapy were displayed as works in progress by Varian and IBA.Varian announced at ASTRO it is working on a way to deliver a single-fraction, one-second, very-high dose of protons to a tumor to enable a one-day, one-and-done session called Flash therapy. The vendor said its newer cyclotron has the capability of delivering much higher proton dose rates than previous-generation systems, enabling it to deliver ultra-high dose rates of 40-120 Gy per second (or 700,000 cGy per minute). By comparison, linear accelerators (linacs) generally deliver about 2,400 cGy per minute, and Varian’s ProBeam system delivers up to 10,000 cGy per minute. “We are seeing a very, very different biological response with extremely low toxicity,” explained Bill Hansen, Varian’s director of strategic initiatives. “The healthy tissue does not see it, but the cancer does.”He said the Flash technique is currently being tested preclinically and a group of hospitals interested in pursuing this technology have created the Flash Forward Consortium to study the concept. Current proton therapy treatments are usually spaced into 30 fractions for 60 seconds each. This requires patients who live a distance from their proton center to travel extensively or get an extended-stay hotel room for the duration of their treatments. Flash therapy may enable a single-day, single-dose treatment, which would free up a significant amount of room in proton center schedules and enable a much larger number of patients to be treated on a system.IBA announced at ASTRO the first patients treated with a Spot Scanning Proton Arc (SPArc) plan at the Beaumont Health Proton Therapy Center in Royal Oak, Mich., on its single-room Proteus One system. Instead of using a traditional series of beams that intersect a tumor and require the gantry or patient to be rotated for each beam, proton arc therapy leaves the beam on as it rotates around the patient, enabling much shorter therapy delivery times. Read more about this therapy in the article “Beaumont Hospital Cancer Institute Performs First Irradiation of Spot Scanning Proton Arc Therapy Plan.”IBA said this technique may improve the quality of the treatment by enhancing the dose conformity at the tumor level while reducing the total dose received by the patient. In addition, the Spot Scanning Proton Arc therapy technique potentially increases the robustness of the treatment plan and may further improve the adoption of dose escalation and hypofractionation.

This tutorial discusses logical data extraction, and one of its subtopics Android SIM card extractions. This article is taken from the book Learning Android Forensics by Oleg Skulkin, Donnie Tindall, and Rohit Tamma. This book explore open source and commercial forensic tools and teaches readers the basic skills of Android malware identification and analysis. Logical extraction overview In digital forensics, the term logical extraction is typically used to refer to extractions that don’t recover deleted data or do not include a full bit-by-bit copy of the evidence. However, a more correct definition of logical extraction is any method that requires communication with the base operating system. Because of this interaction with the operating system, a forensic examiner cannot be sure that they have recovered all of the data possible; the operating system is choosing which data it allows the examiner to access. In traditional computer forensics, logical extraction is analogous to copying and pasting a folder in order to extract data from a system; this process will only copy files that the user can access and see. If any hidden or deleted files are present in the folder being copied, they won’t be in the pasted version of the folder. As you’ll see, however, the line between logical and physical extractions in mobile forensics is somewhat blurrier than in traditional computer forensics. For example, deleted data can routinely be recovered from logical extractions on mobile devices due to the prevalence of SQLite databases being used to store data. Furthermore, almost every mobile extraction will require some form of interaction with the operating Android OS; there’s no simple equivalent to pulling a hard drive and imaging it without booting the drive. What data can be recovered logically? For the most part, any and all user data may be recovered logically: Contacts Call logs SMS/MMS Application data System logs and information The bulk of this data is stored in SQLite databases, so it’s even possible to recover large amounts of deleted data through a logical extraction. Root access When forensically analyzing an Android device, the limiting factor is often not the type of data being sought, but rather whether or not the examiner has the ability to access the data. All of the data listed previously, when stored on the internal flash memory, is protected and requires root access to read. The exception to this is application data that is stored on the SD card, which will be discussed later in this book. Without root access, a forensic examiner cannot simply copy information from the /data partition. The examiner will have to find some method of escalating privileges in order to gain access to the contacts, call logs, SMS/MMS, and application data. These methods often carry many risks, such as the potential to destroy or brick the device (making it unable to boot), and may alter data on the device in order to gain permanence. The methods commonly vary from device to device, and there is no universal, one-click method to gain root access to every device. Commercial mobile forensic tools such as Oxygen Forensic Detective and Cellebrite UFED have built-in capabilities to temporarily and safely root many devices but do not cover the wide range of all Android devices. The decision to root a device should be in accordance with your local operating procedures and court opinions in your jurisdiction. The legal acceptance of evidence obtained by rooting varies by jurisdiction. Android SIM card extractions Traditionally, SIM cards were used for transferring data between devices. SIM cards in the past were used to store many different types of data, such as the following: User data Contacts SMS messages Dialed calls Network data Integrated Circuit Card Identifier (ICCID): Serial number of the SIM International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI): Identifier that ties the SIM to a specific user account MSISDN: Phone number assigned to the SIM Location Area Identity (LAI): Identifies the cell that a user is in Authentication Key (Ki): Used to authenticate the mobile network Various other network-specific information With the rise in capacity of device storage, SD cards, and cloud backups, the necessity for storing data on a SIM card has decreased. As such, most modern smartphones typically do not store much, if any, user data on the SIM card. All network data listed previously does still reside on the SIM, as a SIM is necessary to connect to all modern (4G) cellular networks. As with all Android devices, though, there is no concrete stipulation that user data can’t be stored on a SIM; it simply doesn’t happen by default. Individual device manufacturers can easily decide to write user data to the SIM, and individual users can download applications to provide that functionality. This means that a device’s SIM card should always be examined during a forensic examination. It is a very quick process, and should never be overlooked. Acquiring SIM card data The SIM card should always be removed from the device and examined separately. While some tools claim to read the SIM card through the device interface, this may not recover deleted data or all data on the SIM; the only way for an examiner to be certain all data was acquired is to read the SIM through a standalone SIM card reader with a tool that has been tested and verified. The location of the SIM will vary by device but is typically either stored beneath the battery or in a tray located on the side of the device. Once the SIM is removed, it should be placed in a SIM card reader. There are hundreds of SIM card readers available in the marketplace, and all major mobile forensics tools come with an included reader that will work with their software. Oftentimes, the forensic tools will also support third-party SIM readers as well. There is a surprising lack of thorough, free SIM card reading software available. Any software used should always be tested and validated on a SIM card that has been populated with known data prior to being used in an actual forensic investigation. Also, keep in mind that much of the free software available works for older 2G/3G SIMs, but may not work properly on a modern 4G SIM. We used the Mobiledit! Lite, a free version of Mobiledit!, for the following screenshots. It is available at: http://www.mobiledit.com/downloads. The following is a sample 4G SIM card extraction from an Android phone running version 4.4.4; note that nothing that could be considered user data was acquired despite the SIM being used actively for over a year, though fields such as the ICCID, IMSI, and MSISDN (own phone number) could be useful for subpoenas/warrants or other aspects of an investigation: SIM card extraction overview The following screenshot highlights SMS messages on the SIM card: The following screenshot highlights the phonebook of the SIM card: The following screenshot highlights the phone number of the SIM card (also called the MSISDN): SIM Security Due to the fact that SIM cards conform to established, international standards, all SIM cards provide the same security functionality: a 4- to 8-digit PIN. Generally, this PIN must be set through a menu on the device. On Android devices, this setting is found at Settings | Security | Set up SIM card lock. The SIM PIN is completely independent of any lock screen security settings and only has to be entered when the device boots. The SIM PIN only protects user data on the SIM; all network information is still recoverable even if the SIM is PIN locked. The SIM card will allow three attempts to enter the PIN; if one of these attempts are correct, the counter will reset. On the other hand, if all of these attempts are incorrect, the SIM will enter Personal Unblocking Key (PUK) mode. The PUK is an 8-digit number assigned by the carrier and is frequently found on documentation when the SIM is purchased. Bypassing a PUK is not possible with any commercial forensic software; because of this, an examiner should never attempt to enter the PIN on the device as the device will not indicate how many attempts remain before the PUK is activated. An examiner could unwittingly PUK lock the SIM and be unable to access the device. Forensic tools, however, will show how many attempts remain before the PUK is activated, as seen in the previous screenshots. Common carrier defaults for SIM PINs are 0000 and 1234. If three tries remain before activating the PUK, an examiner may successfully unlock the SIM with one of these defaults. Carriers frequently retain PUK keys when a SIM is issued. These may be available through a subpoena or warrant issued to the carrier. SIM cloning The SIM PIN itself provides almost no additional security, and can easily be bypassed through SIM cloning. SIM cloning is a feature provided in almost all commercial mobile forensic software, although the term cloning is somewhat misleading. SIM cloning, in the case of mobile forensics, is the process of copying the network data from a locked SIM onto a forensically sterile SIM that does not have the PIN activated. The phone will identify the cloned SIM based on this network data (typically the ICCID and IMSI) and think that it is the same SIM that was inserted previously, but this time there will be no SIM PIN. This cloned SIM will also be unable to access the cellular network, which makes it an effective solution similar to Airplane Mode. Therefore, SIM cloning will allow an examiner to access the device, but the user data on the original SIM is still inaccessible as it remains protected by the PIN. We are unaware of any free software that performs forensic SIM cloning. It is supported by almost all commercial mobile forensic kits, however. These kits will typically include a SIM card reader, software to perform the clone, as well as multiple blank SIM cards for the cloning process.

New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like “The intervention of Hezbollah starts to transfer the problem into a sectarian conflict, a sectarian war between Sunnis and Shiites,” he said. “The problem will (spread) all over the Middle East, to Lebanon, to Turkey, to Iraq, to Jordan and maybe to the Gulf.”He said that Hezbollah soldiers, who back Assad’s regime, are now “all over the country,” including in Aleppo and Damascus. His claims could not be independently verified. Hezbollah is a Shiite group while the Syrian rebels are overwhelmingly Sunni Muslims.“If our country (is) under occupation of foreign troops of Hezbollah and Iran, nobody can talk about peaceful initiative,” he said. “The problem is not between the Syrian people and the regime; it is between the Syrian people and invasion of Hezbollah and Iran.”His comments came after Assad’s forces captured the strategic town of Qusair due in large part to Lebanese Hezbollah fighters’ increasing role and the West’s continued reluctance to arm the rebels out of fear they might fall into the hands of Islamic extremists fighting in the rebel ranks. The capture of the town near the Lebanese border was portrayed by Syrian state-run media as a turning point in the civil war that has lasted longer than two years and killed tens of thousands of people. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Check your body, save your life COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) – The leader of Syria’s main opposition group on Friday warned that the involvement of Hezbollah is transforming the war in Syria into a sectarian conflict between Sunnis and Shiites, and says peace negotiations aren’t possible as long as Hezbollah and Iran are fighting alongside President Bashar Assad’s regime.George Sabra, acting head of the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition, told The Associated Press that Syria was under occupation from foreign troops and urged the international community to act now or risk the Syrian conflict spreading to other parts of the Middle East.

The militia has sent fighters to two areas near Damascus, just a two-hour drive from the Lebanese border, while many of the rebel-held areas are more remote and more difficult for Hezbollah to reach.Hezbollah has justified its involvement in the fight for Qusair by saying it is protecting Lebanon from Sunni extremists among the ranks of rebels fighting Assad.Sabra was in Copenhagen to meet with Danish Foreign Minister Villy Soevndal as he seeks support from Western capitals.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

medal match on Sunday Germany lost their semi-final 0-3 against World Champions and title holders Australia at the Kalinga Stadium Dylan Wootherspoon (42nd) Jeremy Hayward (48th) and Tom Wickham scored for Australia against a German side which had only 13 players at its disposal today after four of them were ruled out of the match due to fever File image of the India men’s hockey team Reuters The Germany were already down to 17 men before today’s match as one player had returned home after suffering injury during the course of the tournament Germany did not get the services of some of the key players like Martin Haner Julius Meyer Christopher Ruhr and Marco Miltkau on Saturday as they were down with fever since last night Such was Germany’s plight that they had to play reserve goalkeeper Mark Appel as a field player Australia will now play Argentina in the summit clash of the tournament scheduled to be held Sunday evening After having lost 0-2 to Germany in the pool stages of the tournament the Indians would be hoping to avenge the defeat And come Sunday the hosts can breathe a little easy against the Germans who are bound to field a depleted side again because of fever and injury Having finished third in the last edition of the tournament in Raipur in 2015 India desperately wanted to go one step further this year but their dreams were crushed by the experienced

struggled to play their natural counter-attacking hockey against the Argentines Even though India had the better match statistics in terms of ball possession shots on goal and circle penetrations they failed to break the resolute Argentine defence The close defeat that too in difficult playing conditions will definitely be hard to digest for the Indians but they cannot afford to get bogged down by that and let it affect them mentally The conditions might not have been favourable but India created a handful of scoring chances against Argentina that included two back-to-back penalty corners but they continued to misfire time and again in the tournament Sunday’s match will also be the last time for India to impress upon the hockey crazy fans of the temple city before next year’s World Cup as the stadium not only witnessed capacity attendance on all days but also braved intermittent rain and windy conditions to support the home team on a wet day All in all India have a great chance to
