Indias 2nd largest singlesite oil refinery in Jamnagar gets CISF security cover

first_imgNew Delhi: An armed contingent of over 100 CISF commandos has taken over counter-terror security duties at the country’s second largest single-site oil refinery in Gujarat’s coastal district of Jamnagar. The refinery in the Vadinagar area is owned Nayara Energy Ltd (formerly Essar Oil). This is the tenth installation in the private sector of the country to get an armed cover of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), a paramilitary under the Union home ministry.

A squad of over 100 armed commandos, led by an Assistant Commandant-rank officer of the force, has taken over the charge of security on Tuesday, he said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostNayara Energy Limited, the CISF said, is a private oil company based in Mumbai that encompasses refining, marketing, production and a network of over 5,000 retail fuel outlets in India. The group, on its website said, its facility in Vadinagar in Jamnagar is the second largest single-site refinery of the country. The largest such refinery of Reliance in Jamnagar is also guarded by the CISF. The facility is strategically located on the west coast of India, providing proximity to Middle East and Africa and also facilitate access to high consumption domestic as well as export market, the business group stated in its profile. CISF commandos will provide round-the-clock security in a quick response team (QRT) pattern as part of which they keep vigil from vantage positions using sophisticated assault weapons and use vehicles for swift movement. Regular entry and exit in the facility will be executed by private guards under the overall supervision of CISF personnel and the force will ensure any terror threat is kept at bay and thwarted, a senior official said. The ‘client’ or the contracting company pays for such a CISF security cover, he added. Officials said this is the tenth private sector deployment of the CISF in the country. The force was tasked to extend its armed security cover, exclusively from the existing government sector deployment, to private installations after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks in which Pakistan-based terrorists targeted five-star hotels and other locations killing over 166 people. The other nine private sector units being guarded by the CISF are: Electronics City in Bengaluru and Infosys campuses in Bengaluru, Mysore and Pune, Reliance Refinery and Petrochemicals in Jamnagar, Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd project executed by the Tata group in Mundra, Tata Steel project based in Odisha’s Kalinganagar, Yoga exponent Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Food and Herbal Park Private Limited in Haridwar and the Navi Mumbai-based Reliance Corporate IT Park.last_img read more

UNESCO chief deplores death of French photojournalist in Tunisia

19 January 2011The head of the United Nations agency tasked with defending press freedom today deplored the death of a French photojournalist who lost his life on Monday following injuries he sustained while covering demonstrations in Tunisia. “The death of Lucas Mebrouk Dolega is a tragic reminder of the difficult and dangerous situations in which media professionals must often work,” the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Irina Bokova, said in a statement.Tunisia’s president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, fled the country last week amid growing protests and violence by protesters reportedly angered by rising prices of essential commodities, lack of employment opportunities, alleged corruption and limitations on fundamental rights and freedoms. On Tuesday, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon voiced renewed concern at the growing violence in Tunisia, and urged that all efforts be taken to restore peace and stability.“Journalists stand as witnesses to the events and actions that shape our lives and societies,” Ms. Bokova said in her statement. “Their work contributes to the development of transparent and accountable decision-making, which is one of the conditions demanded by today’s citizens.”Ms. Bokova added that national authorities everywhere have a responsibility to ensure that the media works in secure conditions, and called for efforts to shed light on the circumstances of Mr. Dolega’s death. Mr. Dolega, 32, was a photographer with the European Press Agency. He reportedly succumbed to injuries sustained when he was hit by a tear gas canister while covering demonstrations in Tunis on 14 January. read more

UN Security Council working on lasting solution to violence in Lebanon

“What is important for the Council is to work on a contribution for a sustainable solution,” Ambassador de la Sablière told reporters following closed consultations of the 15-member body that included briefings by Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Ibrahim Gambari and Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jane Holl Lute.The Council President stressed that work towards such a lasting solution was much more important than any resolution, press statement or other declaration that could be produced quickly.He explained that, while the Security Council was not “orienting” the Secretariat team, which was operating under the auspices of the good offices of Secretary-General Kofi Annan, it was in constant communication with them and was very actively seized with the crisis.“There have been many thoughts and discussions going on and we have to take stock of all these ideas and work on a contribution of the Council towards a sustainable solution,” Ambassador de la Sablière replied to a question about a proposed multi-national force and other possible long-term measures.Also addressing reporters after the meeting, Under-Secretary-General Gambari said he told the Council that the situation had deteriorated to the point of “open war.” He gave an overview of diplomatic developments in the crisis and reiterated Mr. Annan’s call for a cessation of hostilities, stressing the toll the attacks from both sides were taking on civilians.“I made it clear,” he said of his briefing to the Council, “that the deliberate and indiscriminate targeting of civilian areas in northern Israel by Hizbollah, including Haifa, is unacceptable and must be stopped. At the same time, Israel’s targeting of civilian infrastructure must be ended.” read more

Michigan Delegation Presses Case for National Guard to Host Cyber Mission

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Michigan’s congressional delegation is lobbying top defense officials to locate a cyber operations squadron at the 110th Attack Wing at Battle Creek Air National Guard Base.The lawmakers cite multiple reasons for the unit to host the squadron including the base’s existing cyber missions, a factor which would save the Air National Guard $2.2 million because much of the needed infrastructure already is in place.They also point to the state’s skilled workforce and universities as assets that would help fill positions created by a new cyber operations squadron. “Michigan has a network of highly skilled IT professionals, qualified DOD personnel, as well as public and private cyber security specialists. We also have 22 colleges and universities that offer degrees in cyber security, including five colleges that have earned NSA Centers of Excellence designations,” according to the delegation’s letter to the heads of DOD, the Air Force, the National Guard Bureau and the Air National Guard.In a separate letter, Gov. Rick Snyder (R) echoes many of the lawmakers’ arguments. Snyder adds that the Michigan Air National Guard has borne a disproportionate amount of past cuts in manpower for the Air National Guard, amounting to 37 percent of Air National Guard reductions since fiscal 2012.  last_img read more

Magnitude 49 aftershock rattles Southcentral

first_img(Screenshot of Alaska Earthquake Center website)A magnitude 4.9 aftershock struck near Anchorage at 5:21 a.m on Thursday — the largest since December 1st. The Alaska Earthquake Center placed the epicenter eight miles northwest of the state’s largest city.The center says the aftershock was one of over 6,000 since the magnitude 7.0 quake on Nov. 30.Natalia Ruppert is a seismologist with the Alaska Earthquake Center. She says a general rule of thumb is that the largest aftershock would be an order of magnitude smaller than the mainshock — the earthquake that caused it — meaning the largest aftershock from the Nov. 30 quake would be a magnitude 6.0.“We haven’t seen it yet. We’ve seen a couple of magnitude 5… 5.2, 5.3, I believe. A bunch of magnitude 4,” Ruppert said. “So this is not unusual; the magnitude 4.9 aftershock is not unusual for a magnitude 7 mainshock.”There have been about 40 aftershocks above magnitude 4.0 since the mainshock. Ruppert says the earthquake center doesn’t anticipate a quake as big as the magnitude 7.0 quake to happen as the area returns to the background level of seismicity. She also says as time goes on, the number and strength of the aftershocks will decrease.“The background level before November 30th in this specific region was maybe ten earthquakes per day,” Ruppert said. “Right now, we’re recording ten earthquakes per hour, at least ten. So it’s still way above the background level.”She says it’s expected to take over a year for the area to return to normal, but aftershocks that people can feel should taper off in a few months.This aftershock happened during the partial federal government shutdown that started last Friday. The US Geological Survey, which monitors earthquakes, is on furlough during the shutdown. Ruppert says that due to public safety protocol, the USGS is still monitoring earthquakes, but at a reduced capacity.“So they are not able to do maybe any in-depth follow up. I don’t think they will do it,” Ruppert said. “But they are still recording earthquakes and reporting earthquakes. And their website is working.”As of today, there have been just over 51,000 earthquakes in Alaska this year — a record high since the Earthquake Center began recording quakes. A little under 60 have been larger than magnitude 5.last_img read more

Breaking MS Dhoni denied permission to wear Balidaan badge by ICC despite

first_imgAfter intense debates and deliberations and a lot of speculations, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has finally delivered its verdict and MS Dhoni will not be able to sport the ‘Balidaan’ Indian Army insignia on his gloves during international cricket matches. The ICC has rebuffed BCCI’s request to allow the the veteran cricketer to wear wicketkeeping gloves which sport the dagger symbol.In it’s response, ICC explained that the former Indian captain had breached two clauses of the clothing and equipment regulations: one relating to display of “personal messages” and the other concerning the logo on his gloves.This latest update was followed by a statement by Vinod Rai, chairman of the BCCI’s Committee of Administrators, in which he said that the BCCI will not escalate this matter as the ICC had insisted on following the regulations even though the Indian board requested some “flexibility” on the matter.  MS Dhoni wearing the glove containing the ‘Balidaan Badge’IANSDuring the CoA meeting which took place in Mumbai on Friday, one of the members did inform that approval had been sought so that the former Indian captain can continue to wear the gloves with the Army insignia. “Yes, we are aware of the issue with Dhoni’s badge. But this is not a political or religious sentiment and we have requested the ICC to grant permission to Dhoni to sport the badge on his gloves,” the COA member said.The ICC statementThe ICC has responded to the BCCI to confirm the logo displayed by MS Dhoni in the previous match is not permitted to be worn on his wicket-keeping gloves at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.The regulations for ICC events do not permit any individual message or logo to be displayed on any items of clothing or equipment. In addition to this, the logo also breaches the regulations in relation to what is permitted on wicketkeeper gloves.”Balidaan” is a distinct insignia of the special forces, which is a part of the Parachute Regiment. It has a commando dagger pointed downwards, with upward-extending wings extending from the blade and a scroll superimposed on the blade with “Balidaan” inscribed in Devanagari. This can only be used by the Paramilitary Commandos.last_img read more

Attempted Mummy Smuggling Thwarted at Cairo Airport

first_img File this under “Unexpected items found in airline passengers’ luggage”: Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities this weekend announced the discovery of mummy remains hidden inside speakers at the Cairo International Airport.An X-ray scan tipped customs authorities off to a “foreign object” inside a Belgium-bound package.All related parcels were seized for inspection by a specialized archaeological committee.AdChoices广告Inside the body of a loudspeaker, airport security found six parts of two skeletons—including pieces of two feet, two legs, one hand, one arm, and a torso—with the remains of mummification and resin.Remains belong to two mummies, and consist of six parts: two feet, two legs, the lower part of a left hand, one arm, and part of the torso (via Egypt Ministry of Antiquities)The confiscated components were taken to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo for further inspection and restoration.There is no word on who the smuggler is, or what their punishment will be. But the Arab Republic takes the trafficking of antiquities very seriously, handing out prison terms “with hard labor” and a hefty fine of 5,000 to 50,000 Egyptian pounds.“All archaeological material, ancient art, and artifacts of any kind that are discovered or found within the Republic of Egypt is regulated cultural property,” according to the 1983 Egyptian Law on the Protection of Antiquities.Customs authorities suspected a foreign object inside one of the speakers in a parcel being shipped to Belgium (via Egypt Ministry of Antiquities)For a land so steeped in history, it’s no surprise, really, that ancient remains are often stolen from the country.Just this month, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art returned the gilded Coffin of Nedjemankh to the Egyptian government after learning it was looted in 2011.Led to believe the coffin was exported from Egypt in 1971, the Met purchased it two years ago as the centerpiece of the exhibition Nedjemankh and His Gilded Coffin.The museum only recently learned it had been duped, and that the relic was in fact stolen from Egypt in 2011.One of 70 works from the collection (seen by more than 448,000 visitors), the coffin has been taken off view and sent back to Egypt.More on Geek.com:3,000-Year-Old Tomb of Egypt’s King Tut Finally Restored After a Decade of WorkEight Ancient Painted Mummies Discovered in EgyptAncient Sarcophagus Contains Cosmetics, Mirror Mummified Mice and Falcons Found in Newly Discovered Egyptian TombMummified Cats, Beetles Discovered in Ancient Egyptian Tombs Stay on targetlast_img read more

Protecting Your Computer Part 2 Firewalls

first_imgby Philip Dunn [ Part 1 ]While rather new to computing in comparison to antivirus programs, in today’s Internet connected world firewalls are actually more important. A firewall is a barrier between your computer and the outside world – be it other computers on a network or the Internet.To communicate with other computers, your software is equipped with thousands of virtual ports. These ports or communications channels allow different programs to communicate with each other. Each program looks for a response on a specific port. For example, port 80 is used by your web browser “see” pages on the Internet. Popular chat programs often use port 1214. Some file sharing programs use port 6385. Each program is different and some are configurable as to which port they use.Understanding these ports exist is more important than knowing which one each program uses, however. Unfirewalled ports are constantly listening for attempts at communications from other computers.Hackers know this and often scan the Internet for computers with listening ports. Once found, they initiate communications and quickly – a matter of milliseconds – gain full access to your computer. This process is completely automated and hackers can scan thousands of computers in less than an hour.Once connected, they can do virtually anything you can – read files, install programs – mostly viruses and worms – and even monitor your keystrokes. Keystroke monitoring is dangerous because it allows them to capture your passwords and credit card numbers. Worms are used to infect other computers.The best defense against this is to block access to these ports. When a hacker scans a firewalled computer, he gets no useful information to carry out an attack. The ports are closed.In response to this defense, hackers have devised clever programs that you must install to get around the firewall. This leads us to the firewalls second role: blocking outgoing communications from your computer.When you install any new program that tries to access the outside world, the firewall will inform you of this activity and ask you what you want to do: allow or deny access.Programs can receive for two types of access: client – outgoing communications only and server – two-way communications. Programs that need to register themselves via Internet often ask for client permission. Chat and file sharing software need server access to work properly. This document is subject to copyright.

Google launches review after leak of audio conversations Citation: Protecting Your Computer: Part 2 – Firewalls (2006, January 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2006-01-firewalls.html Explore further Be very careful about giving server access to any program. This access can allow the software to modify your system, see files on your hard drive and install software. If you’re not sure, deny access to the program. If the program continues to work properly, it does not need internet access. Programs that fail to work require that you adjust the firewall to allow access. Some firewalls, like Norton Internet Security, scan your computer during the install process and give the appropriate permissions automatically. If not, try to discover what privileges the program needs. Does it need to access the Internet? Is two-way communications required? Give the lowest possible permission to allow it to function – you can always adjust it later if needed.One good way to find out what a program is doing is to Google it. If it’s a virus, somebody has discovered it already.Firewalls can be chatty at times, constantly warning you of outside attacks. These messages can be turned off or ignored. Rest assured its doing its job. Most messages are generated by harmless routers and web servers.Remember that firewalls protect you from all other connected computers, not just ones on the Internet. This can cause headaches when connecting your computer to a local area network at you home or office. Good firewalls, like Zone Alarm, normally detect the new networks and ask for permission for access. If you wish to allow print and file sharing, give server permission, if not, give client permission – enough for web browsing, for example.If you are on an organized network at work, you may be protected by a proxy server with a hardware firewall and a proxy server – ask your network administrator.Don’t even think about connecting your computer to the Internet until you are sure a firewall is installed at some point between you and the Internet.Firewalls, like antivirus programs, need to be kept up to date. They normally do this in the background automatically. Still, it’s a good idea to check them and make sure they are loading at startup and updating automatically. Windows XP version 2 has a built-in firewall that, although not the best, is enough to protect you from most common attacks.Experts recommend more. Get a dedicated firewall like Zone Alarm (free at www.zonelabs.com) or Norton Internet Security (www.symantec.com) – which also includes its famous antivirus program.[ Protecting your Computer: Part 3 – AntiVirus ][/Copyright 2006 PhysOrg.comlast_img read more

Scientists watch evolution in action

first_img More information: James Stewart, et al. Journal of Morphology, DOI:10.1002/jmor.10877 © 2010 PhysOrg.com (PhysOrg.com) — The yellow-bellied three-toed skink (Saiphos equalis) is one of only three reptiles known to have different methods of reproduction in different places. In the coastal areas of New South Wales (NSW), near Sydney, Australia, the skink lays eggs, while in the northern highlands of NSW, it tends to favor giving birth to live young. Scientists say we are witnessing evolution in action, with the skink half-way in its transformation from an egg-layer to a bearer of live young. Explore further A three-toed skink. Credit: Australian Traveller The skink resembles a small snake, but with miniature legs. It reaches a length of about 18 cm, and is mostly nocturnal, feeding on insects. Biologist James Stewart, of East Tennessee State University, and colleagues in the US and Australia have been studying the skink and have found ‘intermediate’ skinks that retain their eggs internally longer than others. It appears the live-bearers evolved from these.The scientists have also discovered that as they retain their young internally for longer, the thickness of the eggshell is reduced until, for those bearing live young, the shell is merely a thick membrane. Having a thinner shell enables the mother to keep the embryo well fed while the egg is inside her body, but there is less calcium available for the embryo. Stewart and the team found that the uterus in the egg-layers secreted calcium that became incorporated into the embryo. “It’s basically the early stages of the evolution of a placenta in reptiles,” Stewart said.Giving birth to live young is an advantage in colder areas, such as the northern highlands of NSW, since the embryo develops for longer within a warm body. The negative side is that keeping the fetus in the uterus is more physically demanding on the mother. In warmer areas such as coastal regions of NSW, eggs have a better chance of surviving the climate, but the negative is a greater vulnerability to attack from predators.Live birth is known to have evolved 132 times among animals with a backbone, 98 of these in reptiles, which Stewart said suggests that while it seems a complex transition, “it’s looking like it might be much simpler in some cases than we thought.” Two other species of reptiles are known to use both types of reproduction: a European lizard and another species of skink.Stewart’s paper is published in the Journal of Morphology.• PhysOrg.com iPhone / iPad Apps• PhysOrg.com Audio Podcasts / iTunes• PhysOrg.com Android apps (new version available)• Join PhysOrg.com on Facebook!• Follow PhysOrg.com on Twitter!

QF Virgin dispute affects overseas travel

first_img“It’s the second or third-largest market for these carriers outside their home market.” “Australia is an important travel market in its own right,” CIMB analyst Mark Williams said. Virgin Group founder Richard Branson has expressed his distaste for Qantas’ behaviour in the airline’s battle to undermine Virgin Australia’s operations. The ongoing rivalry between Virgin Australia and Qantas Airways has the potential to impact international airlines regional competition, beckoning further involvement by partner carriers. Australia’s high-yielding business travel market – estimated by analysts to be worth as much as AU$3.8 billion – has the capability to affect regional travel in regions such as the Gulf and Asia, Reuters reported. Virgin Australia’s major shareholders, Air New Zealand, Etihad and Singapore Airlines and Qantas’ alliance partner Emirates stand to be greatly transposed by the outcome of the current conflict.center_img Last week, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce accused Virgin Australia of undercutting Qantas, in reference to the AU$300 million capital investment injection from overseas shareholders. “The strategy by Qantas to exert its power over its smaller rival by releasing false information and attempting to discredit Virgin Australia is no different.” “Over the past week I have watched the behaviour of Qantas, and likened it to the tactics that were thrown at us by British Airways in the 1990’s with their dirty tricks campaign,” Mr Branson said.
