Three Americans Among Dead In Terror Attack On Jerusalem Synagogue | Fox News

The information comes by way of Berlin-based Security Research Labs . Karsten Nohl, Sascha Krisser and Jakob Lell gave an extensive presentation about BadUSB vulnerabilities during the PacSec 2014 security conference in Tokyo last week. While not every stick is vulnerable to BadUSB, it’s almost impossible to tell which ones are, as manufacturers switch part suppliers all the time. MORE: 15 Best Mobile Privacy and Security Apps For those who need a refresher, BadUSB is a vulnerability that would not only allow malware infection of PCs, but could “redefine” any class of USB device into any other a thumb drive could present itself to the PC, and behave, as a keyboard, smartphone or camera, for example. This would obviously be a problem for everyday consumers, but a catastrophe for governmental or financial institutions. You can check out the Security Research Labs presentation for the technical details, but basically, each thumb drive has two components: a mass-storage memory chip and a controller processor, which runs embedded software, or firmware. The mass storage is where you keep documents and videos and whatnot, but the firmware is what makes the stick compatible with other electronics.

Lost in Suburbia: Revenge of the turkey – News – Dover Post – Dover, DE

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a militant group, said the cousins were its members. A PFLP statement did not specify whether the group instructed the cousins to carry out the attack. Soon after the attack, clashes broke out outside the Abu Jamals’ home, where dozens of police had converged. Residents hurled stones at police who responded using riot dispersal weapons. Residents in the neighborhood, speaking on condition of anonymity for fears for their own safety, said 14 members of the Abu Jamal family were arrested. Mohammed Zahaikeh, a social activist in Jabal Mukaber, said one of the relatives of the cousins, Jamal Abu Jamal, was released in a 2011 prisoner swap and re-arrested recently by Israeli police. He did not say why. Hamas, the militant group that runs the Gaza Strip, praised the attack as retaliation for what it claimed was the murder of a Palestinian bus driver who was found hanged in his vehicle late Sunday.

But still, if I were a turkey, I dont think I would take any chances. Id fly up to Canada where they celebrated thanksgiving in October, or maybe find a nice vegan commune where they celebrate the holidays with a tofurkey instead. Of course, Im not a turkey, so I really dont know what turkeys think about this time of year. But clearly the wild turkey I encountered seemed stubbornly determined to ride out the holidays in my neighborhood. He was, in fact, in a big hurry to go nowhere. Hey, you big turkey, get out of my driveway! I yelled out my car window, hoping to get him to move so I could pull into my garage. The turkey feigned indifference and continued to stand his ground.

Deadly Jerusalem Synagogue Attack, Security Increased In Nyc – New York News

I went outside and had a panic attack. Raybould says the shops manager assured her following the visit that her husbands contract was terminated. A few days later, though, more T-Mobile letters and texts addressed to him started coming in. “It’s gone downhill since then, she told the Telegraph . I’ve had texts since then asking if David wanted to pay an extra 2.50 for broadband and letters saying that bailiffs would be coming.” Raybould is understandably furious with the company. “How dare they put me and my sons through this after all we have been through already, she said. “I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what we have gone through over the last few months. It was easier for us to bury him than sort this out.” A T-Mobile spokesperson confirmed to the Telegraph that Rayboulds account has finally been closed.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the attackers were cousins from East Jerusalem, which has been the scene of relentless clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters in recent months. She identified the assailants as Ghassan and Oday Abu Jamal from the Jabal Mukaber neighborhood. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a militant group, said the cousins were members. A PFLP statement did not specify whether the group instructed the cousins to carry out the attack.

Netherlands Get Back On Track With Euro Qualifying Win Over Latvia | Fox Sports

Afellay again tested the Latvia keeper with an angled drive after cutting inside from the left. Robben continued to terrorize the visitors defense, collecting a quick pass from Wesley Sneijder and darting into the area, as Kolinko came out to block with his feet. Van Persie’s downward header was too close to the Latvia keeper, but Kolinko could do nothing as Robben lashed in a second goal on 35 minutes. After collecting the ball on the left, Robben exchanged passes with the Dutch captain, before stepping inside and sending the ball into the top right corner from 20 yards. FOX SPORTS DAILY SUBSCRIBE Latvia were over-run again three minutes before the break. Afellay sped down the left and crossed for Schalke forward Huntelaar to sweep the ball in at the near post, taking his international tally to 37, alongside Dennis Bergkamp in third place on the all-time Dutch goalscorer list. The one-way traffic continued in the second half.

Serbs, Russians In First Joint Military Exercise | Triblive

aSerbia’s government wants to try and keep everyone happy,a said prominent Balkan political analyst Tim Judah. aSo the U.S. helps finance and modernize Serbia’s army while now Serbian soldiers train with Russians. In normal times there would be little to say about this, but post-Crimea, these are not normal times anymore.a In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the military exercise was regrettable. aAlthough it is our understanding that this Russian-Serbian joint military drill had been planned for some time, we regret that Serbia decided to proceed. In light of Russia’s actions in Ukraine and its disregard of international law and norms, this is no time for abusiness as usual’ with Russia,a Psaki told The Associated Press. Although Serbian officials say they respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity and do not support Russia’s annexation of Crimea, they have refused to impose sanctions against Russia like the European Union and the United States.

Service dog imposters raise concerns for people with disabilitie – WFSB 3 Connecticut

But, Maher says a new trend could be putting her access at risk. The problem is people are masquerading their pets as service dogs so they can take them shopping, out to eat, or on airplanes. “They put that vest on Fifi, take him into the store. All of a sudden I’ve got a Chihuahua in a shopping cart barking at my dog. That dog isn’t trained to behave and ends up distracting or harming other people or my dog. Maher said. Kristie Baker is just as frustrated. “They’ll bark, they’ll growl at people, they’ll pee inside a building and merchants are becoming a little bit…

Your cat may be carrying a mind-controlling parasite … and it could spread to you | New York’s PIX11 / WPIX-TV

The parasite has been shown to cause personality changes, correlating with mental health diseases like schizophrenia, autism and Alzheimers disease. University of Montana Microbiology Professor Bill Granath says some studies have also found women to be more prone to suicide. Its a very insidious, some of the studies that you can read, how the parasite can attack certain nerves and manipulate various neurotransmitters and cause various mental illnesses. I guess youd call italtered states, he explained. Studies have shown increased recklessness in the infected human population who also have a slightly higher rate of traffic accidents. There have been studies in Denmark that show actually that there is a correlation between cat owners and female cat owners, and various mental problems, Granath stated. Various studies also correlate toxoplasmosis with suicide in veterinarians and while nothing says definitively that the phenomenon is caused by the parasite some believe there is a link.

Manchester United: Analyzing Angel Di Maria’s Recent Drop In Form | Bleacher Report

Everton , Leicester City , and Queens Park Rangers , during whichthe diamond was employed, the Argentine attempted 16 take-ons, completing nine, and created 10 chances ( WhoScored.com and Squawka ) With Di Maria, Falcao, Van Persie and Rooney sharing the field together, the team showcased a fluid attack, but they were unimpressive in defense, conceding five goals to Leicester City in a shocking loss. Following the loss to Leicester and a Wayne Rooney red card against West Ham (which would rule him out for the next three games), United’s tactical look shifted greatly. Louis Van Gaal switched to a 4-1-4-1 setup, employing five in midfield to quell the attacks of opposing sides and switched out Ander Herrera for the physical Marouane Fellaini . Since this switch, the back fourespecially Paddy McNairhave found their feet and United have produced some industrious defensive displays, conceding only two goals in their last three matches. Rui Vieira/Associated Press Fellaini has been in rich form for United, but his inclusion in the side is indicative of their recent defensive setup By the same token, Di Maria has been ousted to the wing, often unable to get in behind the defense. He is still being aggressivehe completed four out of eight take-ons against Crystal Palace but there is simply no longer any space for him to run into after he beats a player.

Toxoplasma gondii plus genetics equals suicide. Toxoplasma gondii alone [eiht] no genetic tendencies [and] no suicide who knows? So how do we get it? Generally from eating raw meat, but the journey the parasite will often take before infecting a human is equally as strange. Toxoplasma gondii creates a phenomenon called fatal attraction syndrome in rodents, which eliminates their fear of cats. They will actually walk up to cats, and of course they will then get eaten by the cat, and the cat will get infected with the parasite, Granath said. So, it almost seems like the parasite is manipulating the intermediate host to enhance its transmission to the next host or the cat, he added. Granath says cats are the parasites favorite host because its the only host animal where Toxoplasma gondii cam efficiently replicate itself. The parasites eggs are shed in the cats feces, and whether thats in a litterbox, or outside in the environment, the eggs are often accidentally ingested by humans.

Seeking A Rock – Forging A Tribe | Payson Roundup – Payson, Az

Blessedly, the beauty of the place didnt allow me time to wallow in my anxiety. It was mid-October and the flowers from the seasons unusually wet monsoon carpeted the slope with a dazzling yellow. Wed reached our point of rugged bewilderment off of Forest Road 71 at the base of the Sierra Anchas after passing through several cattle gates, only to wind up stalled out on a slope of boulders. Wed found no trace of the pictoglyph site called the post office nor Journigan rock. My mom loves history, so I thought finding the rock of tough-as-nails pioneer Journigan would tickle her fancy. Journigan was among the first settlers in the area and now his name remains attached to a historic and reportedly haunted restaurant on Paysons Main Street. Born in Flagstaff, Journigan grew up with his grandparents on a ranch in Tonto Basin.

Lawyer Wearing Only Diaper When Arrested in Home Invasion, Stabbing | KVOA.com | Tucson, Arizona

Police have said the attack apparently stemmed from a workplace dispute. Alecia Schmuhl had worked with the male victim at the Bean, Kinney & Korman law firm in Arlington, but a law enforcement source said she had been fired recently. The Schmuhls, of Springfield, both face two counts of abduction, two counts of malicious wounding, and other charges. During Alecia Schmuhl’s bond hearing Friday morning, prosecutors said her husband, armed with a gun and a Taser, knocked on the door of the victims’ home in the 900 block of Spencer Road in McLean, while posing as an officer. Andrew Schmuhl allegedly tased the male victim and forced his way into the house, ordering the female resident into the bedroom. He bound both the husband and wife with flexible cuffs and told them he was investigating the husband’s law firm, according to prosecutors.

Your Cat May Be Carrying A Mind-controlling Parasite … And It Could Spread To You | New York’s Pix11 / Wpix-tv

MOVED ^Report performed after the Christopher Dorner rampage reveals complaints of unfairness< LAPD-DORNER-REPORT:LA _ A Los Angeles Police Department review of its discipline system prompted by the Christopher Dorner rampage found widespread concerns among officers and civilians that the agency discriminates based on gender, ethnicity and rank, according to a report reviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Focus group sessions held with more than 500 department employees found that many of those interviewed believed internal investigations were unfair and that punishments were subjective, the document said. Among the complaints were that the department overlooks misconduct by high-ranking officials and that nepotism infects the disciplinary process. The report, however, also contained data that raised doubts about some of those perceptions of bias. 1050 (with trims) by Joel Rubin and Jack Leonard in Los Angeles.

Veterinarian Trevor Ferguson says suicide is one of the first things students are warned about it school. The occupation does carry a risk with some zoonotic diseases that humans can get and animals can get. But, probably as far as suicide rates, its probably more associated with stress than it has to do with zoonotic diseases, he told us. Granath says in biology an outcome is not always caused by just a single thing, so its hard to say without more research. Toxoplasma gondii plus genetics equals suicide. Toxoplasma gondii alone [eiht] no genetic tendencies [and] no suicide who knows? So how do we get it?
