In one of the instances, cyber-security experts were roped in after a public sector insurance company had been hit by WannaCry. “Luckily, the company had been taking a backup on a separate server so only two days of data were lost. However, when we checked the whole system, we found that there were some bugs that could leave an opening for future cyber-attacks on their recently implemented GST IT infrastructure,” a cyber-expert close to the development said. The time window established by GST for the above steps is quite narrow. Therefore, to assist in the institutionalisation of this process, GST has allowed registered ASPs or GSPs to support suppliers and buyers. The above steps and the existence of intermediaries in the process create unique security risks for vendor organisations and buyers, according to a PwC expert. “Companies now have to be more cautious since increasingly, business will move online especially with GST and new IT systems that the tax law needs,” said Kartik Shinde, Partner, EY.

Speaking about the impact of ongoing consolidation in the industry, Sinha said a similar upheaval happened in 2003 when a new player --Reliance Infocomm (now Reliance Communications) -- entered the market, but things settled down in a couple of years. “I dont think there’s a threat of job lossesconsolidation is happening, and the world over mostly two-three operators are there, and in India too, some five to six players will be left, and healthy competition will remain.” The minister said the government would not stop any new player from entering an open market. On a related issue of the sector’s high debt of Rs 4.9 lakh crore, bruised further by the fierce competition triggered by the entry of Jio, Sinha said a meeting of the recently created inter-ministerial group looking into the financial health of the sector had taken place. With rapid mergers and acquisitions happening across the industry, HR experts and industry executives say nearly one lakh direct or indirect jobs are under threat out of the around three lakh people employed with the sector, directly or indirectly.

Authorities cordoned off the area, and forensics experts were investigating the scene for evidence. The former prime minister's car was parked by the side of the road, in front of its escort vehicle. Papademos' car bore little sign of damage, except for buckling on two doors. The government described the blast as a terrorist attack. It is obvious and self-evident that the Greek government unreservedly and categorically condemns the attack against the former prime minister, Mr. Papademos, said government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos. The spokesman said he had been given an update from doctors treating the wounded, who were in a stable condition, are conscious, and are undergoing all the necessary medical tests so that their treatment can be determined. Conservative opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, whose brother-in-law, conservative politician Pavlos Bakoyannis, was shot dead in 1989 by members of far-left terror group November 17, expressed rage and pain at the attack against Papademos.

As the summer vacation season begins, TIME History asked prominent experts in American history to recommend a historic place to visit, and compiled their picks here. Unsurprisingly given the course of American history, the Civil War looms large on this list, but it is by no means the only moment that lives on in the landscape. Some of the suggestions on the list are easily recognizable, in which case the experts' insights can help visitors see a familiar place in a new light, and others are more off the beaten path, offering a chance to learn about a historical figure or event that is no less important for being less talked about. Happy trails. President Lincolns Cottage , on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home, in Washington, D.C., was where Lincoln spent about a quarter of his Presidency, during summers, including some of the most important moments of those crucial years, such as planning the Emancipation Proclamation.

planning that took place. So that's the challenge, right, for counterterrorism authorities, that these organisations move fast. We learn a lot from these attacks, they learn even more from them and they keep changing their methods, as you say and more. How then do terrorism experts and authorities, how can they possibly anticipate what the next kind of attack, the next generation.

New data Thursday paint a mixed picture of the U.S. economy. A report on the job market shows a slight increase in the number of people signing up for unemployment assistance last week. But the data also show that the number of people laid off remains at a low level consistent with a strong job market, where it has been for well over two years. Economists say strong employment data will encourage the U.S. central bank to raise interest rates at its next meeting in June. The U.S. unemployment rate will be updated late next week. A separate report shows the United States buys more merchandise abroad than it sells to foreigners. April's trade gap was the second-worst in two years. The trade data could mean slower economic growth. Friday, experts will publish an update to the U.S. GDP for the first few months of this year. A survey of economists shows they expect it to decline slightly from the disappointing seven-tenths of a percent annual rate reported earlier.

The Kyiv office market will get tighter due to the limited supply of new business centers and growing occupancy, experts say. However, any development boom is unlikely in the foreseeable future because of economic instability in Ukraine, low rents and lack of credit. As of the end of 2016, total office stock in Kyiv amounted to 1.7 million square meters. Last year five new business centers were commissioned with total volume of about 40,000 square meters. It was the lowest supply since 2008. The vacancy level remains very high, between 1422 percent, according to various estimations, which brings down rental rates. Currently, the monthly average rate for grade A office premises is $16-$29 per square meter and $8-$16 for grade B. Four new business centers are scheduled to open in 2017Sigma, Astarta, Protasov Business Park, and K/Most. UNIT City plans to finish redevelopment by the end of this year.

Fedorak says that “the demand for rent in Kyiv will remain high, as the number of high-quality and adequate offers is not catching up with the demand. Even neglected housing with an (average) price easily finds its tenants.” Both real estate agents and experts agree that rental prices in the capital will not rise over the next year. The real estate market is a marker of the economy. If salaries dont grow and the purchasing power of Ukrainians remains low then landlords wont be able to raise rental prices. Fedorak does not “see any reasons for any changes in Ukraine’s rental market (in the nearest future).” The post Artem Muliavko’s quest to find an affordable place to rent in capital appeared first on KyivPost .

A U.S. military investigation into a deadly March airstrike has found that a secondary explosion caused the deaths of more than 100 civilians in Mosul, Iraq. U.S. Central Command, which oversees American military operations in the Middle East, said Thursday the investigation determined that Islamic State fighters had placed “large amounts” of explosives in a building that housed civilians and then began attacking Iraqi forces from that building. When the coalition targeted snipers on the roof, the explosives detonated, killing at least 101 civilians sheltering in the bottom floors and four civilians in a neighboring structure. U.S. Central Command said Thursdayweapons and structural experts concluded, based on extensive modeling, (that) the structural damage to the building was in a different location” than where the airstrike hit and was “in excess” of what could have been caused by the single GBU-38 munition used in the March 17 strike.

As the U.S. population continues to age, experts say rates of Alzheimers disease , a neurodegenerative condition that involves memory loss, will rise as well. Already, researchers say that deaths from Alzheimers are increasing. In the latest report on the subject, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, scientists found that deaths from Alzheimers increased 55% from 1999 to 2014. The data was collected from the National Vital Statistics System, which analyzes death certificate information in the U.S. While people with Alzheimers may die of other causes, such as respiratory failure or heart disease, these data capture when Alzheimers is an underlying cause for those conditions. MORE: Alzheimers from a New Angle The report, which tracked deaths at the county level, found that the regions with the highest deaths from Alzheimers were in the southeast, midwest and along the west coast.

It's another week of weighty issues in the tabloids, with heavy politics and underweight celebrities hogging the headlines. "Bag of bones Angelina Jolie" is an anorexic 91 pounds and must "rehab or die!" proclaims the 'Globe,' only three weeks after stablemate the 'National Enquirer' reported that the actress "looks healthier than she has in months" and had "regained an estimated 53 pounds." The 'Globe' squad of fun-fair midway-trained "Guess Your Weight" experts also report "99-lb Lisa Marie Presley Dying!" as "friends fear she's killing herself with drugs." Because in Hollywood friends live in constant fear for their celebrity pals. Singer Tony Bennett "has 5 weeks to live . . . friends fear," reports the 'Globe.' Evidently he's too weak to snap his fingers as he sings, which "pals fear" means the end is near. Or maybe at 90 the crooner simply has a touch of arthritis? Another singer, Jessica Simpson, has gained a little weight, and her modest stomach paunch prompts the 'Enquirer' to report that she is "pregnant to save marriage!" Or maybe she's just eaten too many Burger King Double Whoppers? The magazine even found a New York doctor to say that based on a couple of photos "she certainly looks at least three months along" - a time at which most women are barely showing.

The drug can be used to excite the immune system of anyone with the genetic biomarker to attack solid tumors. This kind of treatment was first approved for use against advanced skin cancer in 2014, and none too soon. This was the type of checkpoint inhibitor drug that saved former U.S. President Jimmy Carter's life . Finding the Right Treatment Unfortunately, immunotherapy appears not to benefit all patients, and experts are not sure why. So far, only about one in 12 seem to benefit from immunotherapy. Clinical trials are ongoing, but not all researchers are sure that they are able to select the right patients to show the effectiveness of the drugs. Nevertheless, as more is understood about how checkpoints and biomarkers work, researchers hope to incrementally improve the effectiveness of immunotherapies. But immunotherapy isn't the only front for battling cancer.
