Pogba should put team first to be success says Deschamps

first_imgAnd France manager Didier Deschamps believes Pogba is trying too hard to impress critics he will never win over anyway.“Even when he does things well it’s not good enough,” Deschamps told French station RMC. “So we can understand that it may encourage him to do things that are out of the ordinary but not necessarily helpful.“He can do things that others do not, but it must also be the reality of what is good for the team. We’re talking about a young player. He is at a club where he is also used in different positions.”Pogba’s social media presence and the size of his transfer also mark him out as a target for the critics, according to Deschamps, who says the player’s position means he will struggle to be a Ballon d’Or contender in years to come.“He’s a midfielder. The Ballons d’Or are attackers or No 10s, with rare exceptions. These are players who score goals. Paul? He scores, but he will not score three goals every game.”By Sky Sports0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Paul Pogba cost Manchester United a world-record fee in the summer.

Chiropractic is about addressing the root of the problem, which can often be along the spine. Dr Aram Proudman said: “Chiropractic works because every cell, tissue and organ requires information from the brain in order to work properly. This information travels down from the brain, through the spinal cord and out through the nerves to these structures. The spinal bones are there to protect this delicate system. If these spinal bones are not moving properly or fixed in the wrong position due to injury, repetitive strain or other factors, this communication can be affected.“Chiropractors assess the body to detect any abnormal motion or position of the spinal bones, pelvis and skull that may be affecting this communication between your brain and your body.”The team are looking forward to showing how ‘Chiropractic Works’ by offering spinal checks to people looking for full wellness in their lives.

SA olive oil a hit in Italy

(Image: Willow Creek) Olive oil judges at the 2009 L’Orciolo d’Oro competition in Italy. (Image: Enohobby Club dei Colli Malatestiani)Janine ErasmusFind out more about using MediaClubSouthAfrica.com materialSouth African olive oil producer Willow Creek Olive Estate has taken top honours in the prestigious L’Orciolo d’Oro olive oil competition in Gradara, Italy – the world’s second biggest producer of olive oil. The competition took place at the end of June 2009.Willow Creek’s flagship Directors’ Reserve extra virgin olive oil won the intensely fruity category at this year’s competition, edging out the second- and third-placed Spanish oils that were its closest rivals.This is a top international honour for an olive oil and reflects the outstanding quality of South African oils and the increasing respect they have garnered in the global industry. Local products have walked off with many trophies and certificates in recent years.The Directors’ Reserve is a limited edition created by the Willow Creek directors once the last press of the season has taken place. It is generally a blend of three Tuscan olive varieties – Coratina, Frantoio and FS17 (Favoloza) – and is described by the producer as a robust, intense oil.Situated in the Nuy Valley at the foot of the Western Cape’s Langeberg mountains, Willow Creek has been cultivated since 1793. The first olives were pressed in 2002 by current MD Andries Rabie, a direct descendant of that first farmer, Johannes Stephanus Rabie. Today a range of products including oils, whole olives, tapenades and pestos are available.Rabie attributed the success of the 2009 batch of oil to the cool summer, which played a role in the development of a very high level of polyphenols in the olive fruits. He also said that because the area does not suffer from the rainy winters of the coastal region, optimum moisture levels at the right time is possible through careful irrigation.Furthermore, the soil is rich in calcium, which keeps the pH at the slightly alkaline level preferred by olive trees, and the seasonal variations in temperature allow trees to enter a rest period which is necessary for the development of flowers.Tough competitionThe local brand was up against tough competition from major olive oil-producing countries such as Spain, Greece and Italy. Agronomist Giuseppe Fontanazza of the Olive Research Institute in Perugia and L’Orciolo d’Oro chair Marta Cartoceti convened the judging panel of 28 olive oil experts drawn from all over the country.The L’orciolo D’oro was established in Italy as a national competition 16 years ago, and opened to international producers in 1999. The competition takes place under the patronage of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry and is organised by the Enohobby Club dei Colli Malatestiani. It is open to regular and organic extra virgin oils.The competition’s Italian name refers to the large terracotta jars that were used to store oil in days gone by. The jars are now given as trophies.The top three oils receive gold, silver and bronze awards in three categories of fruitiness – light, medium and intense. Certificates for honourable mention and distinction are also given, and there is an award for the most artistically designed label.Oils are tested for chemical properties as well as sensory effects such as taste and aroma.Worldwide acclaimIn the past decade several South African olive oil producers have shone at this and other olive oil competitions, fairs and food festivals around the world. Among them are Willow Creek, Olyfberg, Vesuvio Estates, and Morgenster in Somerset West.In 1999 the latter producer’s extra virgin olive oil, a blend of Frantoio, Leccino, Coratina, and Favoloza cultivars, became the first oil of South African origin to receive the distinguished L’Orciolo d’Oro award. Morgenster oils have won L’Orciolo d’Oro awards in every year since the inception of the international leg of the competition.Morgenster received an honourable mention in the intensely fruity category at the 2009 L’Orciolo d’Oro ceremony, as well as an honourable mention and a distinction in the medium category.Stealing the limelightWillow Creek’s Directors’ Reserve extra virgin olive oil also scooped a gold medal at the 2009 Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil competition, in the intense-robust category. To win gold in this category an oil must score a minimum of 86 points out of 100.Three other Willow Creek products stole the limelight in Los Angeles. The Frantoio-Leccino blend of extra virgin oil took a gold medal in the medium category, while the Parmesan-infused and basil-infused oils won bronze medals in the flavoured-delicate category.Morgenster’s blended Frantoio-Leccino-FS17 also won gold in the robust category.The Los Angeles event is now in its 10th year. No less than 318 producers from all over the world submitted 477 entries for consideration, and 96 gold medals were awarded.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Missteps in Securing Autonomous Vehicles

first_imgRecently an autonomous car company highlighted some plans to keep their vehicles safe from hacking. Yet their plans won’t actually make them secure. Such gaffs highlight issues across many different industries where cybersecurity is not sufficiently understood by manufacturers to deliver products hardened against attack. The result, in the case of autonomous vehicles, could be catastrophic.In the article Why Some Autonomous Cars Are Going to Avoid the InternetOpens in a new window, the CEO of the company told the Financial Times (paywall)Opens in a new window “Our cars communicate with the outside world only when they need to, so there isn’t a continuous line that’s able to be hacked, going into the car”. They are choosing to operate the cars in a mostly offline manner to protect against cyber threats.Sounds EffectiveAt first glance, this would seem to be a worthwhile protection mechanism against hackers. It is not. The ‘control’ is to reduce connectivity to the Internet, which does provide some security value for the time it is not connected. But that is where the logic falls apart and in the end, it does not significantly reduce the chances of being attacked.It seems logical, that by reducing the overall vulnerability of the system it will improve the security. But that is not always the case. Just because you remove 50% of the vulnerabilities, it does not mean you reduced the chances of being victimized by half. It is more complex as other dependencies are at work. This mistake is even common among entry level security professionals who are taught to think of risk as a pure equation (R=T x V x I). The Risk equals the Threat times the Vulnerability multiplied by the Impact, which is a fine equation when used properly for a specific purpose. Reduce any amount of vulnerability and the resulting risk is also reduced. However, this equation is not applicable to every problem or discussion.Back to the autonomous vehicle security problem. Intermittent connectivity is a reduced availability tactic. To the attackers, it is simply a network latency problem and can be easily overcome. There is a great deal of precedent and history proving this, which I won’t get into. Instead, let’s think about the problem in a different way by using an analogy.Building a WallImaging you were tasked with protecting your village from marauders. You employed a security specialist to greatly reduce the risks of bandits getting into your hamlet and causing havoc. A wall is built halfway around your town, visible to all. The security specialist then confidently announces he has reduced the vulnerabilities by half, therefore significantly reduced the chances of a successful attack by 50%. Nope. The marauders simply need walk around the wall to get into the town. It might slow them down, as they are laughing and walking around the defenses, but it will not deter or prevent an attack.The same is being proposed here, which is why reducing the Internet connectivity of autonomous vehicles, is an ineffective security control. Such tactics have proven futile in the past.ExploitationThe root of the logic problem is in thinking about security in terms of equal vulnerabilities. Not all weaknesses are the same. There may be a hundred vulnerabilities but only 5 are being used to compromise a system. Only the efforts to close those 5 (the ones being exploited) will be important, while the other 95 are meaningless to the immediate goal of being secure.Cyberattackers will wait for connectivity to compromise devices, just like thieves will bypass the locked door to enter via the open window, and bandits will walk around a wall to enter a village unimpeded. The chances of attack are not significantly reduced, just the timeliness of when it will occur.AccountabilityIn this case, the car company is promoting a security design feature which really is ineffective. Yet, they don’t even realize it. As consumers, we must hold manufacturers accountable for the security, safety, and privacy of the products they produce. This is especially true of devices that hold the potential for life-safety risks. It should draw concern when in marketing and public communications, companies are showing a lack of cybersecurity knowledge and experience, likely as a result of improper skill-sets or executive prioritization, while at the same time exhibiting confidence in the security of their products. It is a dangerous combination.Getting Security RightIt is important to institute optimal security capabilities as part of the design and core functions (Hardware, Firmware, OS/RTOS, software, endpoints, networks, etc.) to protect passengers and pedestrians from potentially catastrophic accidents resulting from digital compromises. Security must be effective, economical, and not undermine usability.Understanding cybersecurity can be challenging, but many car companies are investing heavily in autonomous vehicles to make it a reality. As part of that investment, they must employ the right caliber of cybersecurity professionals to develop a proper strategy, architecture, and capabilities. Thankfully, I do know many in the field who are working on more comprehensive solutions, beyond reducing internet connectivity, to manage the broad range of risks that could impact us all. I believe it is time for all the automakers to work together and develop cohesive capabilities that meet the growing expectation of security, privacy, and safety.

Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Davide Santon could have added to Roma’s injury crisis after the defender trained apart from the squad with the flu. Roma already have seven players out, but that risks becoming eight if Santon does not recover by the time they release their squad list for tomorrow’s Europa League match with Borussia Monchengladbach. Elsewhere, Cengiz Under and Henrikh Mkhitaryan continued to work away from the first team and Corriere dello Sport also considers them doubtful to face Milan this weekend.

BRYAN ADAMS SAYS ORIGINAL MASTERS OF BIG HITS LOST IN UNIVERSAL FIRE

first_imgMany of those musicians only learned recently of the damage through a report in The New York Times, after Universal downplayed the impact for years. Several acts, including Soundgarden and an estate representing Tupac Shakur, have sued, alleging that Universal failed to protect music ruined in the fire and inform them of the extent of its impact. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Facebook Universal suggested the Times “overstated” the losses, but the label’s CEO has said he owes the artists “transparency” and “answers” on the damage.Adams says he only learned of the impact when he started plotting a 30th anniversary reissue of his No. 1 album Reckless six years ago.

CSIS gathered info on peaceful groups but only in pursuit of threats

first_imgA CSIS witness testified the spy service “is not in the business of investigating environmentalists because they are advocating for an environmental cause, period.”Still, another CSIS witness spoke of the need for “domain awareness” to identify “potential triggers and flashpoints” _ in part to ensure the service is aware of what is happening should a threat arise, the report says.Ultimately, the review committee concluded CSIS’s information collection fell within its mandate, and that the service did not investigate activities involving lawful advocacy, protest or dissent. The report indicates that any information on peaceful groups was gathered “in an ancillary manner, in the context of other lawful investigations.”The report also says there was no “direct link” between CSIS and the chilling effect groups mentioned in testimony before the committee. But after analyzing evidence and testimony, the committee concluded the fears of CSIS surveillance were unjustified.The heavily censored review committee report, completed last year and kept under wraps, is only now being made public because of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association’s challenge of the findings in the Federal Court of Canada.In its February 2014 complaint to the CSIS watchdog, the association alleged the spy service had overstepped its legal authority by monitoring environmentalists opposed to Enbridge’s now-defunct Northern Gateway pipeline proposal.It also accused CSIS of sharing this information with the National Energy Board and petroleum industry companies, deterring people from expressing their opinions and associating with environmental groups.The review committee’s dismissal of the complaint has been known since September 2017, but a confidentiality order by the committee prevented the civil liberties association from releasing the report. As the association fights to overturn the dismissal, redacted versions of the detailed findings and related documents are being added to the public court record.The association, which became concerned about CSIS activities through media reports, told the committee of a chilling effect for civil society groups from the spy service’s information-gathering as well as comments by then-national resources minister Joe Oliver denouncing “environmental and other radical groups.” OTTAWA, O.N. – Canada’s spy service collected some information about peaceful anti-petroleum groups, but only incidentally in the process of investigating legitimate threats to projects such as oil pipelines, says a long-secret federal watchdog report.The newly disclosed report from the Security Intelligence Review Committee acknowledges concerns about a “chilling effect,” stemming from a belief that the Canadian Security Intelligence Service was spying on environmental organizations.Advocacy and environmental groups Leadnow, the Dogwood Initiative and the Council of Canadians are mentioned in the thousands of pages of CSIS operational reports examined by the review committee.center_img The civil liberties association considers some of the findings contradictory, pointing to the 441 CSIS operational reports deemed relevant to the committee’s inquiry, totalling over 2,200 pages.For instance, one of the largely censored CSIS records, now disclosed through the court, says the reporting was further to “the Service’s efforts in assessing the threat environment and the potential for threat-related violence stemming from (redacted) protests/demonstrations.”Another refers to the Dogwood Initiative as a “non-profit, Canadian environmental organization that was established in 1999 ‘to help communities and First Nations gain more control of the land and resources around them so they can be managed in a way that does not rob future generations for short-term corporate gain.”’The passages before and after the description are blacked out.“It’s our view that these documents demonstrate that CSIS was keeping tabs on these groups, even if they weren’t formal targets,” said Paul Champ, a lawyer for the civil liberties association.“But we maintain it’s unlawful to keep information on these groups in CSIS databanks when they are only guilty of exercising their democratic rights.”The committee report says CSIS should review its holdings to ensure it is keeping only information that is strictly necessary, as spelled out in the law governing the spy service.The report cites “clear evidence” CSIS took part in meetings with Natural Resources Canada and the private sector, including the petroleum industry, at the spy service’s headquarters, but says these briefings involved “national security matters.”The committee also concludes CSIS did not share information concerning the environmental groups in question with the National Energy Board or non-governmental members of the petroleum business.Even so, the perception of CSIS discussing security issues with the oil industry can “give rise to legitimate concern,” the committee report adds. “This needs to be addressed.”The committee urges CSIS to widen the circle of its public security discussions to include environmental and other civil society groups.(THE CANADIAN PRESS)last_img read more
