A new McColl's store has opened its doors in Plymouth today - replacing a Cooperative store thought to be over 100 years old. As reported by The Herald earlier this week, the Co-op, on Mutley Plain, has been sold by the supermarket giant to McColl's. The Co-op is thought to have remained on the same premises since the early 20th century, albeit with a new frontage. But now the building has now been refurbished and converted into another convenience store. However a second Co-op...

As the US airstrikes in the Iraqi city of Mosul are increasingly concentrated around densely populated neighborhoods in the city's west, the death toll from those airstrikes in spiraling rapidly out of control, with the most recent figures out of the area suggesting around 230 civilians were killed overnight in US and coalition strikes in just a single neighborhood. That's an enormous toll, of course, but is reported from several sources telling largely the same story, including that a single US airstrike against a large building full of civilians in Mosul killed over 130 people , while the other 100 or so were killed in the surrounding area. Central Command said that they were aware of the loss of life and were carrying out further investigation, while insisting that all of their strikes against Mosul overnight comply with the Law of Armed Conflict.

Suppose you take a few measurements of a time-varying signal. Let's say for concreteness that you have a microcontroller that reads some voltage 100 times per second. Collecting a bunch of data points together, you plot them out this must surely have come from a sine wave at 35 Hz, you say. Just connect up the dots with a sine wave! It's as plain as the nose on your face. And then some spoil-sport comes along and draws in a version of your sine wave at -65 Hz, and then another at 135 Hz. And then more at -165 Hz and 235 Hz or -265 Hz and 335 Hz. And then an arbitrary number of potential sine waves that fit the very same data, all spaced apart at positive and negative integer multiples of your 100 Hz sampling frequency. Soon, your very pretty picture is looking a bit more complicated than you'd bargained for, and you have no idea which of these frequencies generated your data.

They are also a threat, because an attacker that can gain control of OOP JIT or the Flash sandbox could e.g. create executable code and use that for further exploitation, bypassing ACG. Because they are a threat, we have also have put these processes into tuned, less privileged app containers, again with a custom-crafted container profile built from capabilities. Impact to attackers Making the Microsoft Edge content process run in this tighter sandbox reduces the sandbox attack surface, but by how much? As it turns out, the reduction is quite significant: 100% reduction access to MUTEXes: allow a process to lock up a resource, causing hangs. 90% reduction in access to WinRT and DCOM APIs: this is the large win here, dramatically reducing Microsoft Edge’s attack surface against the WinRT API set. 70% reduction access to events and symlinks: symlinks are especially interesting, because they are often used in creative bait & switch attacks to escape sandboxes .

The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. After 24 February 1990, all U.S. Presidents since have baldly flouted that warning and done exactly 100% the opposite: the will of America’s aristocrats, not really of any democracy at all. And Obama’s coup in Ukraine in February 2014 and subsequent abuse of not only Ukrainians, but also of Russians (not to say more), is an even more dangerous culmination of that flouting, than was George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq (which entailed not at all the danger of precipitating WW III). No penalty is too high for such persistent utter betrayal and lying. This deserves the highest penalty of all. ————— Investigative historian Eric Zuesse is the author, most recently, of Theyre Not Even Close: The Democratic vs.

Linda Facci and Gene Gironda love working on home DIY projects together, which is what they do after spending working weeks apart. Linda, the Creative Director of famed New York City establishment Magnolia Bakery , enjoys days off upstate in Woodstock, NY with her husband Gene, a carpenter and the chief renovator of their 1940s stone storybook house. When they first found the property a year and a half ago, they thought it would just need a good cleaning. But as often happens when old walls are opened up, more work quickly presented itself. The couple decided to overhaul the main living space, creating an open floor plan in which to entertain groups of friends. Gene took time off from work and concentrated on the house for almost a year, with Linda pitching in her skills on weekends. She and Gene spent an entire vacation mocking up several designs for the living room fireplace wall clad in over 100 painstakingly hand-stained pine boards.

Alberta-focused Prairie Provident Resources Inc (CVE:PPR) told investors it had completed its $41mln cash acquisition of assets, which include high quality production, and are next to its Evi property core area in the Greater Red Earth area of the province. The deal adds a stable and predictable base of cash flow that is capable of financing repeatable growth, the oiler said. The assets add around 1,100 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd), with a low base decline rate of around 10%, the group added. The acquisition was financed via Prairie's credit facility, which has been increased by $10 million to $65 million following closing of the acquisition, and through proceeds from the recently closed $4million bought-deal equity financing of subscription receipts, it said. The addition means the firm will have around 6,500 boepd of current production, with annual 2017 average volumes expected between 6,100 and 6,600 boepd and exit production expected between 7,500 boepd and 8,000 boepd.
