first_img 50 young people from the communities of Flanker and Norwood in Montego Bay, St. James have received certificates The 30 males and 20 females, deemed at-risk, benefited from life skills training The FPC was awarded a grant of approximately $1.3 million to carry out the camp Story Highlights Approximately 50 young people from the communities of Flanker and Norwood in Montego Bay, St. James have received certificates of participation for their involvement in an eight-week summer camp operated by the Family and Parenting Centre (FPC).The presentations were made at a closing ceremony held on Sunday, September 22, at the FPC in Unity Hall.The 30 males and 20 females, deemed at-risk, benefited from life skills training in areas of self awareness, emotional needs, happiness and balance, empathy, managing anger, conflict resolution, choosing a career path, job application and interview, and sexuality management. They also participated in sporting activities.The summer camp, held from July 22 to September 13, was funded by the European Union (EU) and the Government of Jamaica (GOJ), under the Poverty Reduction Programme (PRP) being implemented by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF). The FPC was awarded a grant of approximately $1.3 million to carry out the camp.Founder and administrator at the FPC, Dr. Beverly Scott, said that working with the young people “gave us clearer insight into the culture of the communities and the challenges that they (the youngsters) face, and how they deal with these challenges.  At the outset we got a few demonstrations of how they settle their conflicts.”She stated that by the end of the camp there were more instances of peaceful solutions being brought to the fore when problems arise.Programme Manager of the PRP, Dr. Eleanor Henry, in bringing greetings, underscored the importance of young people in at-risk communities being exposed to social intervention programmes that are “designed to assist in the diversion from crime and violence to gainful activities and occupations”.She extended congratulations to the team at the FPC, “for their vision and most importantly, for expending the efforts to coordinate and implement this (summer camp)”. She described the camp as yet another programme geared towards nation building.Guidance Counsellor at the St. James High School, Radcliff Virgo, who delivered the keynote address, told the young people that there is nothing wrong with their communities, noting that every area has good and bad influences.He said that it is  for the individual to determine, which of the influences he or she will follow.“I implore you to continue to live those positive traits that you have been taught……..each day you should tell yourself that it is a day for me to do better than I did yesterday,” Mr. Virgo urged.He further encouraged them to set their own standards and be happy with their achievements.last_img read more

first_imgDirector Sadaf Foroughi attends the Toronto International Film Festival announcement of their Canadian features for this year’s program in Toronto, Wednesday August 9 , 2017. – CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS Advertisement As the new Iranian film Ava enjoys its debut at the TIFF this weekend, it will have to do so without the presence of its two stars.According to reports, the Canadian government denied travel visas to Iranian performers Shayesteh Sajadi, 18, and Mahour Jabbari, 17. Ava‘s director Sadaf Foroughi, an Iranian-born Canadian citizen, said her two young actors were denied entry after applying for a travel visa through Canada’s embassy in Turkey.According to a letter received by Sajadi and excerpted in The Hollywood Reporter, the government was not satisfied “that you would leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident.” A Globe and Mail request for comment from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has not been returned. Facebook Advertisement Twittercenter_img Advertisement Login/Register With: Sajadi appears in the film alongside Jabbari, the latter of whom plays the drama’s title character, an upper-class teen in Tehran whose relationship with her parents takes a severe turn after questions arise about her relationship with a local boy. The film, a co-production between Iran, Canada and Qatar, made its world premiere at TIFF on Friday night, and will continue to screen this Sunday and next Sunday for the public.“I was surprised to have this news and of course, so sad,” Foroughi told The Globe and Mail over email. “But now I am so much looking forward to our premiere here in the country where I live and love. What is important for me is all the supports and kindness Ava and I have received so far from the festival, especially from [TIFF programmers] Magali Simard and Steve Gravestock.”“The girls are so happy that we all care about them here,” she added. “Altogether, we are looking forward to our audience’s feedback.”Last week, Foroughi was announced as one of the 15 nominees for the 2017 Directors Guild of Canada Discovery Award. This year’s award winner will be announced at the annual DGC gala on Oct. 28.In 2014, Foroughi was at the centre of a dispute with Canadian customs officers, who seized an art installation that was shipped from Iran to Montreal. She eventually received a permit from Foreign Affairs to release her work, which was part of a federally subsidized art project.

first_img Share Updated at 7 p.m. ETWhite House chief of staff John Kelly — a retired Marine general whose own son died in Afghanistan — appeared at the White House press briefing on Thursday, attempting to quell the controversy around a phone call President Trump made to a grieving military widow.Kelly defended Trump’s call to Myeshia Johnson, whose husband was killed along with three other U.S. soldiers in Niger on Oct. 4, and pushed back on criticism that has grown over the course of the week — beginning with a question about why Trump had not responded to the deaths sooner.Trump called Johnson, the wife of Sgt. La David Johnson, on Tuesday. Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., was traveling with Johnson at the time and heard the call over speakerphone. In multiple interviews, Wilson criticized the president for telling Johnson that her husband “must have known what he signed up for.”The fallen soldier’s mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, also told the Washington Post, “President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband” with comments they perceived as insensitive.Trump called Wilson’s account of the phone call “totally fabricated.”In the briefing room on Thursday, Kelly did not directly challenge what was said on the phone call, which he was in the room for. He instead took umbrage at Wilson’s decision to publicly share the details and criticize the president.“I just thought the selfless devotion that brings a man or woman to die on the battlefield, I just thought that that might be sacred,” Kelly said. “And when I listened to this woman and what she was saying and what she was doing on TV, the only thing I could do to collect my thoughts was to go and walk among the finest men and women” at Arlington Cemetery.Kelly said that Trump, in talking with Johnson’s widow, “in his way tried to express that opinion that he’s a brave man, a fallen hero.”“He knew what he was getting himself into, because he enlisted,” Kelly said, explaining Trump’s remarks. “There’s no reason to enlist. He enlisted. And he was where he wanted to be, exactly where he wanted to be, with exactly the people he wanted to be with when his life was taken. That was the message. That was the message that was transmitted.”Kelly himself is all too familiar with the somber process that happens when a soldier is lost in battle — both as a commanding officer and as a father. His son Robert, a Marine posthumously promoted to 1st lieutenant, died in Afghanistan in 2010 after stepping on a land mine. Kelly began his remarks by noting that “most Americans don’t know what happens when we lose [ a member of the military] in combat. So let me tell you what happens.”Kelly detailed how a soldier is flown back to the U.S. after being killed and how the families are notified by a casualty officer.“Typically the only phone calls the family receives are the most important phone calls they can imagine, and that is from their buddies. In my case, hours after my son was killed, his friends were calling us from Afghanistan, telling us what a great guy he was. Those are the only phone calls that really matter,” Kelly said. “And yeah, the letters count to a degree, but there’s not much that really can take the edge off what a family member’s going through.”The chief of staff added, “So some presidents have elected to call; all presidents, I believe, have elected to send letters. If you elect to call a family like this, it is about the most difficult thing you could imagine.”Trump first raised the issue of how past presidents have reached out to console military families at a Rose Garden press conference on Monday. When asked by a reporter why he hadn’t commented about the four soldiers who had been ambushed in Niger, Trump said he had written letters but then went on to falsely claim that, “If you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls. A lot of them didn’t make calls.”Both former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush did call and write letters to families, a fact Kelly acknowledged. Kelly said that Obama did not call him when his son was killed — something Kelly underscored wasn’t a criticism. Trump had mentioned in an interview with Fox News Radio on Tuesday that Obama had not called Kelly.“I don’t believe President Bush called in all cases,” Kelly said. “I don’t believe any president, particularly when the casualty rates are very, very, high, that presidents call. But I believe they all write.”Kelly even said he had counseled Trump not to call the military families while in office because “there’s no perfect way to make that phone call” and because “it’s not the phone call that parents, family members, are looking forward to.”“If you’re not in the family, if you’ve never worn the uniform, if you’ve never been in combat, you can’t even imagine how to make that call,” Kelly said. “I think [Trump] very bravely does make those calls. The call in question that he made … were to four family members, the four fallen.”Kelly then said he told Trump what his friend Gen. Joseph Dunford, now the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told him when notifying Kelly that his son had been killed in action.“[Dunford] said, ‘Kell, He was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed. He knew what he was getting into by joining, that 1 percent. He knew what the possibilities were because we’re at war. And when he died’ — in the four cases we’re talking about Niger, in my son’s case in Afghanistan – ‘when he died he was surrounded by the best men on this earth, his friends,’ ” Kelly explained. “That’s what the president tried to say to four families the other day.”Kelly also bemoaned the politicization of many things that he said used to be off-limits.“You know, when I was a kid growing up, a lot of things were sacred in our country,” he said. “Women were sacred, looked upon with great honor. That’s obviously not the case anymore, as we see from recent cases. Life, the dignity of life, was sacred. That’s gone. Religion, that seems to be gone as well. Gold Star families, I think that left in the convention over the summer.”Kelly appeared to be alluding to the sexual assault scandal around Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Trump was accused of sexual assault and harassment by many women during the campaign, which he has denied, and was also caught on tape using vulgar language about groping and kissing women.Gold Star father Khizr Khan criticized then-GOP presidential nominee Trump at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. In response, Trump questioned why Khan’s wife, who stood next to him, did not also address the convention. “Maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say, you tell me,” Trump said in an interview.Khan, in an interview recorded before Kelly’s briefing, said that “every word” was wrong with Trump’s remarks to Johnson’s widow.“He does not have the capacity to understand what it takes to serve this nation in harm’s way,” Khan said of the president, who had multiple deferments from the Vietnam draft. “These men and women went — he, by default, he is their commander in chief, these are his sons and daughters. How dare he disrespect, how dare he utters a word of disrespect, indignity. There should be empathy, there should be support, there should be dignity of not only their sacrifice, but their family’s sacrifice.”Kelly did take a few questions from reporters, but he specified he would call on ones who were a Gold Star parent or sibling or who knew a Gold Star family.The chief of staff was pressed on the investigation into the Niger attacks, which he said was ongoing. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said earlier on Thursday that the military was still gathering information about the Oct. 4 shooting that killed the four soldiers and wounded two others.“We, in the Department of Defense, like to know what we are talking about before we talk and so we do not have all the accurate information yet,” Mattis said. “We will release it as rapidly as we get it.”The defense secretary did offer some details on how French forces intervened after the Americans came under fire.“The French response included armed fighter aircraft, armed helicopter gunships, a medevac [helicopter] that lifted out our wounded,” Mattis told reporters.About a dozen Americans had just finished meeting with villagers in a remote part of Niger when they were ambushed by a much larger force. The Americans are in Niger to train and assist the military but are not part of a combat mission.NPR national security correspondent Greg Myre contributed to this report. last_img read more

first_imgBy Micha Green, AFRO Washington, D.C. Editor, mgreen@afro.comA gated community and posh restaurant served as the backdrop of the camaraderie at the forefront of State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy’s “45 and Fabulous Birthday Party,” at The Grove in Upper Marlboro, Md. on August 1.  The celebration brought out several politicians, public servants and members of the Prince George’s “who’s who,” all of whom were excited to celebrate the State’s Attorney’s 45th year, but also to celebrate her recent accomplishment in rolling out the plan for youth justice reform in the County.“I just want to let you know that when you elected me, you elected someone that actually means what she says and will deliver on promises,” Braveboy said at her birthday party the day after the youth justice reform was announced. State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy celebrated with her 45 and Fabulous party at The Grove in Upper Marlboro, Md. on August 1. (Courtesy Photo)Ever the politician, Braveboy couldn’t help but discuss the new reform program even as she was partying celebrating her 45th year.“I was blessed to be able to lay out, what I believe, will be the gold standard of juvenile or youth justice reform. And we are not playing.  We are reviewing every single charge and screening it for diversion options, because we know institutionalizing our young people is never the answer,” she said.Many notable Prince Georgians and elected officials expressed their pride in Braveboy’s work.“[God] said to whom much is given, much is required- and I think Aisha has done that and then some,” County Executive Angela Alsobrook said.  “She has a heart for service. She loves the community, she loves her family, she loves the young people of this community, and she’s worth celebrating.”Alsobrooks and other speakers, such as Maryland Delegate and former Prince George’s County Sherriff Michael Jackson, talked about the trend of native Prince Georgians being leaders of the County.“We’re homegrown Prince Georgians. We have talent and we have more to come,” he said.“I’m proud of this young lady.  This young lady has represented all of the other 25th legislative team members- the area that I grew up in…. The area that my family still resides in,” Jackson said. “We’re all proud of her in Prince George’s County.”President of the Maryland Senate, Thomas “Mike” Miller Jr. also shared his pride in Braveboy and her accomplishments.“We were there in the primary for Aisha.  We were there in the general, despite the fact we had a member of our own Senate running against her- that was very tough for us, believe me.  But we looked at the candidates, we looked at the qualifications, and the fact that she was a woman mattered a whole lot,” Miller said.Braveboy talked about the beauty of turning 45.“You know what I am so happy to be 45.  You know why? Because 45 is an age where you’re old enough and wise enough to know the things you should not do. But you’re still somewhat naïve enough to think you can still move mountains- that you can make things happen.  And that’s a great age and a great place to be in this age of leadership.”The State’s Attorney also offered a little inspiration to guests.“Your only limitations are your dreams, your aspirations and your work ethic.”last_img read more

first_imgThis 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.

first_img Travelweek Group Disney increasing park tickets for certain times of year Posted by Share Monday, February 13, 2017 center_img ORLANDO, FLORIDA — Walt Disney World and Disneyland are increasing single-day tickets at certain times of the year and setting expiration dates on tickets in hopes of preventing overcrowding during the theme parks’ busiest times, company officials said.The single-day ticket prices are either staying the same or increased no more than $5 under the new price structure that went into effect Sunday. Last year, Disney rolled out a pricing plan that allows visitors to view a planning calendar from eight to 11 months out to determine which days are considered “value,” “regular” or “peak” times. Visitors pay more on “peak” days, which are the busiest times as forecast by park officials.Disney is hiking its prices following a 5 per cent decline in attendance at its U.S. theme parks during its most recent quarter that included the holiday season.The goal of the varied price structure is to give park visitors an incentive to come during times that are not “peak” so that the experience can be better enjoyed by all, officials said. There have been times during holiday and spring break where the crowds have been so large that Disney has had to stop selling tickets.More news:  Beep, beep! Transat hits the streets with Cubamania truck“Our pricing provides guests a range of options that allow us to better manage demand to maximize the guest experience and is reflective of the distinctly Disney offerings at all of our parks,” said Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler.Starting Sunday, “value” days for Magic Kingdom cost $107 for adults and $101 for children, a $2 increase. During “regular” time, park visitors pay $5 more with prices jumping from $115 for adults to $109 for children. The “peak” prices remain the same at $124 for adults and $118 for children.At Disneyland, prices for single-day tickets also increased by $2 to $5. The regular price of admission at the Anaheim, California, park rose to $110, up from $105, beginning Sunday. A single-day ticket during peak periods climbed to $124 from $119. And the value ticket costs $97, up from $95.At Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, “value” one-day tickets are now $99 for adults and $93 for children, which is a $2 bump for both. “Regular” times for adults are $107 for adults and $101 for children, and “peak” tickets jumped to $119 and $113, respectively for adults and children. The new prices represent a $5 increase across the board during “regular” and “peak” seasons.More news:  Canada raises travel warning amid escalating protests in Hong KongAll tickets now have expiration dates. In the past, only one-day and Florida resident tickets had expiration dates. Also guests will be able to save $20 on multiday tickets when they purchase them in advance. Park visitors can purchase the multiday tickets online at any time prior to entering the park to receive the savings. Tags: Disney, Florida << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more
