first_imgNew Delhi: Google has removed 27 apps that prompted users to install a fake Play Store after researchers from Pune-based Quick Heal Technologies spotted these malicious apps of dropper category and reported the issue. These apps were designed to infect devices with adware after someone fell prey to their continuous installation prompts for fake “Google Play Store”, Quick Heal Security Lab said. The apps stated that users need to install Google Play Store for gaming purposes. If someone cancelled the installation prompt, then it showed the pop-up continuously until installation of the app. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year On executing the parent app, it launched a dropped app. The fake “Google Play Store” remained in the device even after its parent app was uninstalled and kept on displaying full screen ads at random time intervals. The app kept running in the background and showed full screen ads till one did not uninstall it manually. These apps were published by the same developer with the name “AFAD Drift Racer” and all the apps belonged to free car racing games category, Quick Heal said. To avoid installing fake mobile apps, users should check an app’s description before downloading and avoid downloading apps from third-party app stores. Using a reliable mobile antivirus may also help prevent fake and malicious apps from getting installed on one’s phone.last_img read more

first_imgIt was a sparkling night for wildlife at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s annual Wildlife Ball.Kerry Ellis and Dr Brian MayCredit/Copyright: CPG PhotographyHosted by The Dorchester in London on Friday October 9th, 300 guests mingled with celebrities to help raise over £150,000 for endangered wildlife. A stunning set from legendary Queen guitarist, Dr Brian May and singer Kerry Ellis – which included the premier of Brian’s launch video for Cecil’s Law and an acoustic version of Crazy Little Thing Called Love – was followed on the big screen by a heartfelt appeal from former Spice Girl, Melanie C, for everyone to play their part to help save wildlife.“It was an incredible night for wildlife,” says CEO Sally Case. “The depth of support that we, as a small charity, generate illustrates just how important wildlife is to so many people and to the sustainable future of our planet and all of us, where ever we live.”Calling for supporters to be part of the generation that cares, David Shepherd’s granddaughters – the artist Emily Lamb and the Foundation’s event manager, Georgina Lamb – echoed the call for the younger generation to take up the baton to protect precious wildlife and wild spaces.Adding additional excitement to the evening were Mark King from Level 42 (who sang happy birthday to a guest raising £1,000), TV presenter and auctioneer Charlie Ross who helped command almost £60,000 in the live auction of artwork donated by the Shepherd family, British designer and supporter Elizabeth Emanuel, TV presenter Kate Silverton and Olympic gold medal winning rower Alex Gregory.last_img read more

first_img“If we don’t act, somebody will go to court and the courts will certainly find the minister has a requirement to go to cabinet.”Another finding released earlier this week said the provinces are failing to adequately protect critical habitat for woodland caribou as well. It concluded the provinces don’t require their regulatory bodies to follow federal environmental legislation.Friday’s release acknowledges Alberta and B.C. are taking some steps to help the herds, but concludes they aren’t doing enough.“Such measures are not currently complemented by the significant habitat protection or restoration measures necessary to improve the likelihood of recovery in the long term.” Alberta Environment Minister Shannon Phillips said she knew the finding was coming.“We are in a situation where the courts are beginning to lose their patience with the federal government,” she said. “That is why Alberta must demonstrate progress.”Phillips was just back from leading an industry-heavy delegation to Ottawa to discuss restoring caribou habitat. The federal government promised financial help for a socio-economic study and emergency management actions such as caribou maternity pens and wolf culls.She acknowledged that decades of logging and drilling have left some caribou ranges unlikely to be able to support healthy herds for decades to come. But other herds are in better shape.“It is not true that all is lost,” she said.Caribou habitat has been so damaged by decades of industry presence that wildlife managers must resort to extreme measures while they rehabilitate thousands of square kilometres of seismic lines, cut blocks, well pads and resource roads.Meanwhile, local communities have come to rely on current levels of industry to sustain them.Phillips blames the situation on decades of inaction by previous Alberta governments.“We went through about 25 years of the previous government doing precisely nothing, sweet tweet, on this file.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS) EDMONTON, A.B. –  The federal government is one step away from moving in to protect dwindling caribou herds in Alberta and British Columbia after finding them under imminent threat.The finding, released by Environment Canada on Friday covers 10 herds in the Southern Mountain population. They are all smaller than 100 animals and continue to decline. Seven are in British Columbia and the rest are all or partly in Alberta.“Immediate intervention is required to allow for eventual recovery,” says a department document.center_img The finding obliges the environment minister to ask cabinet to issue an emergency protection order under the Species At Risk Act if the two provinces don’t do enough to remove threats to the herds’ recovery.Emergency protection orders allow Ottawa to control activity on critical habitat that is normally governed by the provinces. That would include energy development, forestry and agriculture.The federal government has used the power twice before for the western chorus frog and the sage grouse. The protection order for the grouse affected the drilling plans of several Alberta energy companies.The ministry’s analysis was being done as court actions from conservation groups sought to push Environment Minister Catherine McKenna into enforcing provisions of the law, said her parliamentary secretary Jonathan Wilkinson.“In the short term, what it means is that we need to go and have conversations with the governments of British Columbia and Alberta and relevant stakeholders to discuss how we actually move forward,” he said. “There is a high degree of urgency.”There is, at most, a few months to do the work, said Wilkinson.last_img read more

In a unanimously approved resolution the Council said it decided to extend the mandate of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) until 15 February of next year, with the intention to renew it for further periods.The authorities elected later this year are scheduled to take office on 7 February.In response to Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s recommendations, it would also add, during the electoral period and subsequent changeover from the current Transitional Government, 750 troops for a rapid reaction force, 50 military personnel to create a sector headquarters in the capital, Port-au-Prince, and 275 civilian police (CivPol) to increase security.”For a temporary period MINUSTAH will consist of a military component of up to 7,500 troops of all ranks and of up to 1,897 Civilian Police,” the Council said. In its resolution, the Council asked the Secretary-General to share the overall plan for successful elections in Haiti, including voter registration, security, logistics, civic education, observation and detailed budget information and to devise a strategy to reduce MINUSTAH force levels progressively in the post-election period, as dictated by the situation on the ground.It urged the Transitional Government not to hire people for the Haitian National Police (HNP) until they had been vetted and certified by MINUSTAH and called on the Government “to conduct thorough and transparent investigations into cases of human rights violations, particularly those allegedly involving HNP officers.” The Council also called on the Transitional Government and MINUSTAH to begin immediately effective implementation of the disarmament, demobilization and re-integration (DDR) programme for ex-combatants and it appealed to all Member States to provide in a timely manner the financial, human and technical resources that that programme needs. Meanwhile, UN Under-Secretary-General Jean-Marie Guéhenno, who heads the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), arrived in Port-au-Prince on a five-day fact-finding trip which will also take him to Gonaïves and Cap-Haïtien, MINUSTAH spokesman Damian Onsés Cardona said.During his visit he will hold talks with the Special Representative of the Secretary-General Juan Gabriel Valdés, Haitian President Boniface Alexandre, Prime Minister Gerard Latortue, leaders of political parties and members of civil society, the spokesman said. read more

That’s the view of the UN Special Envoy for Global Education, Gordon Brown, who said yesterday in an interview with UN News that “education has been neglected for too long” and the international community needs to “act now” through a new Financing Compact between developed and developing countries. Sustainable Development Goal 4 commits countries to provide “inclusive and quality education for all” and yet if current trends continue, more than 800 million young people will be leaving school in 2030, without even a basic education, said Mr. Brown. He said the new Finance Facility would unlock nearly $10 billion annually for new education investments, help meet the SDG 2030 deadline, and deliver the right of every girl to an education “free from exploitation, child marriage, child labour and child trafficking.” The envoy, who is former Chancellor of the Exchequer and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, said that currently, only $8 per child is spent on educational aid to the poorest countries, “barely enough in aid to pay for a text book.” “A new approach is essential […] Of all the investments we make, education is the longest term need with children requiring 12 years of consistent, sustained and uninterrupted funding,” he added. VIDEO: Speaking to UN News, Special Envoy Gordon Brown says that “education has been neglected for too long,” calling for the creation of a new financing compact between developed and developing countries. While the Finance Facility – inspired by the highly successful Heavily-Indebted Poor Countries initiative and Global Funds for health and immunization – will be presented at the upcoming World Bank annual meetings, Mr. Brown said, adding that a new Inquiry on Protecting Children in Conflict –supported by Save the Children UK and Theirworld – would also be launched this week. It would build on the work of the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict and complement the mission of long-term investment in education, as so many of the countries deprived of functioning classrooms were also conflict zones, he said. With “moral lines” having been crossed so clearly, as with last week’s purported chemical weapons attack in Idlib, Syria – and the deliberate bombing of schools there – more robust legal protection was needed, said the envoy. “We think that we need to look at international law, see whether perhaps even an International Criminal Court for children’s issues should be set up; see whether we can strengthen domestic laws.” A leading London-based lawyer, Shaheed Fatima, will be conducting a legal review to “look at whether we can actually make recommendations that would strengthen the protection of children who are in these conflict zones” said Mr. Brown, who will chair the Inquiry. Discussing his new initiatives with journalists at UN Headquarters on Wednesday, the Special Envoy said that “only when international law is robust enough […] to secure accountability for children’s rights will we have done all in our power to ensure that no child of God will ever again suffer the horrors of Syria.” “When we ask ourselves what breaks the weak, it is not just the Mediterranean wave that submerges the life vest, nor the food convoy that does not make it to the besieged Syrian town. It is the absence of hope – the soul-crushing certainty that there is nothing ahead to plan or prepare for, not even a place in school,” he said.

Teams that make the NBA Finals have great players. OK, that’s not exactly news. But teams can get great players in different ways. The 2008 Celtics became great largely by signing Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in the offseason. Ditto for the 2011 Miami Heat, by snagging LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Ditto for the 2015 Cleveland Cavaliers.Other finals teams, however, become great organically; they keep mostly the same players, but those players get a lot better. This year’s Golden State Warriors are one such team. The Dubs’ season has been remarkable, but it’s all the more special because they’ve excelled with nearly the same crop of players from last year.1The only substantive addition to this year’s squad is Shaun Livingston, who ranks seventh on the team in minutes played. The top eight players in terms of minutes are almost identical to last year’s team, plus Livingston. Stephen Curry became an MVP winner; Klay Thompson turned into one of the best shooting guards in the league; Draymond Green nearly won Defensive Player of the Year — this Warriors team became great thanks to leaps in performance by existing players.The Warriors improved dramatically this season, according to our Elo ratings. Since the start of the 2014-15 season, they have surged 211 points. That’s the 13th-highest single-season Elo improvement of all time. That’s unusually high for a team that added little talent.Using work by my colleague Neil Paine, I can quantify the talent change from year to year, based on multiyear Real Plus-Minus projections — these are ex ante projections, which incorporate performance in past seasons, an aging curve and regression to the mean.2Specifically, the talent rating is five times the minute-weighted average of a team’s players’ individual Real Plus-Minus projections. (This relationship is shown in the scatterplot below.) Compared with other teams that have reached the NBA Finals since 1980, and given their 3.3-point improvement according to RPM, the Warriors’ Elo rating should have improved by only 83 points. They did much better than that.But guess who improved more than the Warriors, according to Elo, over the course of this season? Their finals opponent, the Cavs. Of course, the Cavs followed the model of the 2011 Heat and 2008 Celtics, signing big talent in the offseason: LeBron James and Kevin Love. James and Love — with Kyrie Irving before his and Love’s injuries — remade a struggling, below-average Cavs squad (who started the season with an Elo rating of 1463).Look at finals teams with large single-season jumps in their Elo rating and you notice something: They look more like the Cavs than the Warriors. That is, newcomers to the NBA Finals have typically acquired a big piece. The best example is the 2008 Celtics, whose 326-point Elo improvement is by far the all-time highest. That 2008 Celtics squad, not surprisingly, also has the largest swing in RPM talent, 11.4 points.To measure organic improvement only, we need to control for the influx of new talent. Specifically, we need to calculate how much the team would have improved if it had made no roster moves (this is the “old” talent), and compare it with how much they actually improved, thus deriving the benefit of new players (the “new” talent).3Specifically, by taking the players on the current year’s roster, but using their end-of-season talent ratings for the previous year, we can compute how the team would have done this season with the same group of players on both teams. Then, by comparing this change to the actual improvement in those same players, we have an organic, or “old,” talent rating. The difference between that and the actual change in the overall team’s talent rating can thus be attributed to the influx of new players (or “new” talent).As shown in the table below, among finals teams since 1980, the Warriors have the second-largest differential between their organic (“old”) talent and their “new” talent. This suggests that you don’t have to snap up a superstar in the offseason to see huge year-over-year improvement. Some teams, like the Warriors, can make it happen organically.CLARIFICATION (June 5, 10:25 a.m.): Some commenters interpreted an earlier version of this post as suggesting that Kyrie Irving was new to the Cavaliers this season. Irving has been in Cleveland since 2011. We’ve updated the language to make that clearer.Neil Paine contributed to this article. read more

first_imgIndian stock markets extended losses on Tuesday after the freefall on Monday, with both Sensex and Nifty closing in the red, while the Chinese stock markets, which had triggered a global selloff on Monday, ended trading on a mixed note.  The S&P BSE Sensex lost 43 points to close at 25,580, while the Nifty ended the day at 7,784, a loss of 7 points, or 0.09%.The advances-to-declines ratio was skewed in favour of advances on both Sensex and Nifty.Coal India, SBI, Hindustan Unilever, Hero Motocorp, TCS, HDFC Bank dragged the Sensex down, while Tata Steel, GAIL (India), Asian Paints and ONGC were the top gainers.Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) lost 1% on a day when there were reports that it was in the race to acquire Perot Systems, the IT management business of Dell Inc,  along with Cognizant and NTT Data.Many bank stocks, such as SBI, Allahabad Bank, Canara Bank and Punjab National Bank, hit a fresh 52-week low on Tuesday.Earlier, both Sensex and Nifty opened with modest gains after yesterday’s crash, but fell sharply around noon, with Sensex losing over 100 points and Nifty about 30 points.On Monday, Sensex had lost 537 points while Nifty closed 171 points down, tracking the plunge on Chinese stock exchanges that crashed more than 7%, resulting in termination of trading around 1:30 pm.In China, the blue-chip CSI300 Index closed with a gain of 0.3% at 3,478.78, while the Shanghai Composite lost 0.3% to close at 3,287.71 points. The smaller Shenzhen Composite dropped 1.9% to close at 2,079.77 points, reported Channel News Asia.Chinese stock markets could see yet another fall later in the week.”(The) sharp downward move has little to do with the fundamentals of the Chinese economy and more to do with the expectation that the ban on share sales from major stakeholders at the end of this week will put downward pressure on prices,” CNA quoted Philip Uglow, chief economist at MNI Indicators, as saying.last_img read more

first_img February 14, 2017 605 Views Appraisers and Homeowners Home Price Perception Index Home Value Quicken Loans 2017-02-14 Staff Writer Homeowners and Appraisers Go Head-to-Head in Data, Headlines, Newscenter_img Quicken Loan National Home Price Perception Index (HPPI) found that the gap between homeowner evaluations and appraiser opinions has expanded for the second month in a row. The HPPI revealed that the appraiser rate is at 1.47 percent below what homeowners were expecting last month. The decrease  follows a six-month trend in mending differences between homeowners and appraisers.The value of the homeowners at the beginning of the refinance process was calculated at 1.47 below the findings of the appraisers. Although the rate has decreased, fluctuation around the country continues to vary. For example, Denver has appraisal valued at 2.98 higher rate than homeowners estimated.Equally, some cities in the East are valued greater than appraisers first reported. Philadelphia appraisals were 2.94 lower than previous calculations. “Having a good understanding of the conditions in their local housing market can be a valuable tool for consumers as they prepare for the home buying or mortgage process,” said Quicken Loans Chief Economist Bob Walters.The Home Value Index (HVI) found that homes values tend to level out at the end of the year during the winter months. In fact, the average appraisal dropped to 0.34 percent between December to January. The index also found that the appraisal rate tends to drop the most in the Northeastern region, the West grows at a vigorous rate, and the Midwest is firmly behind.”This steady growth could very well lead to more availability, driving homeowners to consider cashing in on their growing equity by putting their home on the market. When this happens, it will open new opportunities for eager buyers”, said Walters.The Quicken Loans HPPI symbolizes the difference of opinion between appraisers’ and homeowners. The index evaluates the estimate the homeowner supplies on the refinance mortgage application and the appraisal performed at the end of the mortgage process.The Quicken Loans HVI is is based solely on the statistics from the home purchases and mortgage refinances.
