Required fields are marked *center_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Pasadena Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on Friday, December 19, 2014, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 am.The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource i n reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.In California, this deadly crime led to 802 deaths in 2012 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Nationally, the latest data shows nearly 10,000 were killed by an impaired driver. “Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 4 lives and resulted in 79 injury crashes harming 114 of our friends and neighbors,” said Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez.Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment with officers checking drivers for proper licensing delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-i mpaired driving. Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Nearly 90 percent of California drivers approve of DU I checkpoints.DUI Checkpoints are placed i n locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Pasadena Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1’.

The great eight

first_imgWith powerful, poignant speeches from presenters and honorees alike, this year’s W.E.B. Du Bois Medal awards felt more like a gospel church service-cum-rock concert than an academic award ceremony.Athlete and social activist Colin Kaepernick set the tone before an exhilarated crowd that included some 150 local high school students, declaring that people in positions of privilege and power have a “responsibility” to speak up for the powerless.“People live with this every single day and we expect them to thrive in situations where they’re just trying to survive,” said the NFL free agent who famously took a knee during pregame national anthems to protest racial injustice in America. “If we don’t, we become complicit. It is our duty to fight for them.”,Kaepernick was one of the eight laureates who received medals at Sanders Theatre on Thursday night. Others were comedian Dave Chappelle; writer and social critic Florence C. Ladd; Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute President Shirley Ann Jackson; artist Kehinde Wiley; General Catalyst chairman and CEO Kenneth I. Chenault; philanthropist and Avid Partners founder Pamela J. Joyner; and human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson. Eight to be honored as W.E.B. Du Bois medalists Related Noted for contributions to African and African-American history and culture The awards are bestowed by the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research for contributions to African and African-American history and culture.Ladd, the former director of the Bunting Institute at Radcliffe, donned her medal, then pumped her fist in the air and told the cheering crowd: “A takeaway must be protest, protest, protest.”,Stevenson, M.P.P. ’85, J.D. ’85, L.L.D. ’15, who founded the Equal Justice Initiative, dedicated his award to “people who did so much more with so much less” and asked the audience to think of hope as “your superpower.” To the students, he made a more pointed request: “You’ve got to be willing to do uncomfortable things. You’ve got to be willing to do inconvenient things. Don’t ever think that your grades are a measure of your capacity.” Stevenson himself won a historic Supreme Court ruling that declared that mandatory sentences of life without parole for children 17 or younger are unconstitutional.Moments of humor punctuated the call to resistance, particularly when presenter and incoming Dean of Social Science Lawrence D. Bobo recited parts of Chappelle’s famous skit “The Racial Draft.“ He called the comedian a “teller of uncomfortable truths.”,Chappelle, for his part, praised his parents, especially his mother, a professor of African-American studies. “She raised me well. I am not an uninformed person,” he said.Chappelle said he was humbled to be on stage with his fellow honorees: “You all make me want to be better,” he said. He promised another comedy special and ended his speech with a quote from favorite writer James Baldwin’s book “The Fire Next Time.”“God gave Noah the rainbow sign. No more water. The fire next time.”Hutchins Center director Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Alphonse Fletcher Jr. University Professor, reflected on the critical nature of the honorees’ work in the fight for racial and social justice.Colin Kaepernick applauds at end of ceremony. Jon Chase/Harvard Staff Photographer“When we recall the dramatic progress we’ve made in this country’s struggle for civil rights, it’s tempting to remember only our long arc of progress. But we find ourselves in a new nadir in our country’s race relations,” he said, quoting Du Bois, the first African-American to earn a Ph.D. at Harvard.“Agitation is a necessary evil to tell of the ills of the suffering. Without it, many a nation has been lulled to false security and preened itself with virtues it did not possess.”last_img read more

The dark web has a silver lining

first_img 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The dark web has been in existence since the 1990’s but has become a household word lately through ads from identity protection companies that offer to monitor the dark web. The ads warn a subscription-paying customer if their data may have been compromised and put up for sale.The dark web is where fraudsters conveniently sell breached data such as usernames and passwords, credit and debit card data, alongside complete identities, passports, drugs, guns, and worse. The dark web, and the crimes associated with it, is a big and sophisticated business. There are fraudsters that specialize in obtaining the data. There are other fraudsters that specialize in validating the data, using bots to try the usernames and passwords on hundreds of sites, and others that specialize in testing the credit and debit card numbers on unsuspecting ecommerce merchant sites. Downstream, other fraudsters take the useable payment credentials and either create counterfeit cards or launder the card numbers by buying electronics and gift cards thought online merchant sites. Still others use the validated usernames and passwords for account takeover fraud, draining bank accounts. These groups buy and sell their data on the dark web, creating an entire economy of fraud, and its thriving. Fraudsters go where the money is. But a new business is also thriving from the same economy – the many services that claim to monitor the dark web on behalf of concerned clients. This is starting to shed light on the dark web, and that is unwanted by the bad guys.What is the dark web?To understand how these two business models are at odds, it’s necessary to first understand what is the dark web. It is not a separate network, and it was created by the U.S. government for intelligence operatives (i.e. spies) to anonymously exchange information over the world-wide-web. Just like Napster and Aimster worked over the web to exchange music anonymously by downloading proprietary software for music and movie files to be exchanged, the dark web also requires special software. The software is called Tor and it allows you to navigate websites that are proprietary to the dark web. continue reading »last_img read more
