If someone wants to hack a country, they just need to pick their targets: the government, oil and electricity companies, or media agencies, Rock told the Kyiv Post on Jan. 17. “Ukraine doesnt have strong cyber security, but neither does the rest of the world,” Rock said. “Any company or country can be hacked, and Ukraine is in no better position than anyone else.” Cyber wars According to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Ukrainian government websites were attacked 6,500 times in November and December 2016 alone. The latest attack hit state-owned UkrEnergo’s Pivhichna power substation in December, causing an hour-long blackout in the outskirts of Kyiv. A year before, a well-coordinated cyber attack hit another Ukrainian power supplier, PrykarpattyaOblEnergo, leaving more than 200,000 people without electricity. Maria Melinishyn, PrykarpattyaOblEnergo’s spokesperson, told the Kyiv Post on Jan.

If you use your Lloyd's card in an ATM provided by a different bank, Lloyds pays that bank a certain fee, and the problem is that there is an imbalance for some banks between the number of ATMs that they have and the number of customers that they have, so they are disputing the amount of fees that they want to pay into the system, which is causing a problem for the whole group.

JAKARTA: Green groups said Thursday that one of the world's biggest pulp mills which started production on Indonesia's Sumatra island last month was causing enormous environmental damage. The groups said the US$3 billion mill belonging to industry giant Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) was sourcing raw materials mostly from trees grown on drained peatlands, where haze-belching fires occur every year. The mill produces a raw material which can later be made into paper. Woro Supartinah, whose NGO was among the groups protesting the mill, called on the Indonesian government to "promote a broader set of interests" than just helping major companies reap profits. "Restoring peatlands will generate economic growth and environmental security over the long term," she said. The groups who protested the mill included Wetlands International, Eyes on the Forest and Rainforest Action Network.

But I've just finished serving on the homelessness reduction committee, which went through without such a resolution. So why is it one rule for one bill and one rule for another? When is the boundaries Bill going to go through to committee stage? I am not in a position to announce anything further on that. Clydesdale bank's latest closures includes gift Mac in my constituency, and as well as causing difficulty for causing problems and high streets, it is difficult for people who have trouble getting about.

So if youve been having issues with flaky Skype calls, hopefully these will have been banished. Beefing up the battery The new firmware issued for the Surface Pro 4 also contains a number of reliability fixes, including one tweak that improves keyboard stability although exactly what it does, Microsoft doesnt say and another that improves overall system stability (a few crash-causing bugbears have been squashed, in other words). Perhaps the most interesting development is the attention given to the Surface Integration Service Device, with an update that improves battery longevity when the 2-in-1 is in sleep mode. More battery life is never to be sniffed at, of course. A further adjustment improves storage performance in some measure, and an update for the Intel Precise Touch Device disables touch functionality whenever the cover is closed (as it should be).

Predictably, United Spirits and Pernod Ricard declined to comment on the story . Several retail associations are moving a review petition in the top court, the fate of which would be known in the coming days. These petitioners are likely to plead that less than 6% of road accidents in the country are alcohol-induced ones. Roy said the impending dislocation has the potential to push a large part of the trade underground, or causing them to dry up. “The fact that we are perceived as a sin industry and a heavily regulated one reduces the manoeuvring space,“ he added. The impact on liquor trade will be the most in hilly regions like Meghalaya, Jharkhand and Uttarakhand and densely populated markets -which would include the high-profile business corridors in Gurgaon and even the Western Express highway in Mumbai. Most big states such as Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra, Rajasthan and West Bengal will see between 40% and 60% of the retail trade facing the axe.
