    THE  U.S. Department of Homeland Security says the is a new king of cybersecurity and it's name is killware. U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told USA Today that he thinks that things are poised to go a step further in that direction in the very near future, CPO Magazine reports. 1A new cybersecurity threat called killware is threatening millions of AmericansCredit: Getty Killware is a type of malware that is being deployed with the sole intention of causing physical harm, even death, according to Panda Media Center. Killware is a relatively new term that has been heavily mentioned in the media over the last couple of weeks. But what is killware, exactly?

The cybercriminals behind the attack used malicious code to tackle a water plant in Oldsmar, Florida.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of “Fox Business Tonight,” Atossa Therapeutics founder Dr. Steven Quay stated that failing to properly understand the risks of gain of function research and properly oversee scientists is “an existential threat to life as we know it on this planet.” Host Brian Brenberg asked, [relevant remarks begin around 2:45] “How much risk are we putting ourselves at by not landing on this lab leak origin and doing something about it? It sounds to me like we’re setting ourselves up for more of this because we can’t — we won’t let ourselves get to the bottom of the origin of this virus.” Quay responded, “That’s absolutely true. If we do not, as a public, ask the scientists to tell us the gain — the risk and benefit of doing this called gain of function research, if we let them do it and we keep it under their control, the next pandemic could be 20, 30, 40% lethality. So, just think about what we just went through with a 1% lethal virus, multiply that by 20, 30, 40. This...
    A report from a pro-abortion rights news outlet said Wednesday half of the abortionists at Whole Woman’s Health clinic in Fort Worth have left their jobs since Texas’s Heartbeat Act went into effect September 1. “On August 31, there were 17 abortion providers serving at the four locations of the Whole Woman’s Health clinics in Texas,” reported 19th News. “On September 1 — the day that the nation’s most restrictive active abortion law went into effect, there were just eight.” The new law (SB 8) states abortion procedures are prohibited once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detected – generally at six weeks gestation. Additionally, the law contains a unique enforcement mechanism whereby any private citizen may file a civil lawsuit against an abortion provider or any other individual who “aids or abets” a “criminal abortion.” The abortion officials refer to pro-life groups and individuals as “extremists.” Anti-abortion protesters wait outside the Supreme Court for a decision, Monday, June 29, 2020 in Washington on the Louisiana case, Russo v.

    Tropical Storm Nicholas could "cause life-threatening flash floods across the deep South during the next couple of days," the National Hurricane Center says. The storm, which reached hurricane strength late Monday, made landfall along the central Texas coast early Tuesday before weakening back into a tropical storm. Nicholas was about 15 miles south-southwest of Houston early Tuesday morning and about 90 miles west-southwest of Beaumont, Texas. It was moving north-northeast at 8 miles an hour, with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. The storm is expected to move deeper into Texas on Tuesday and farther east by Wednesday, over Louisiana. Little movement is likely on Thursday. The hurricane center said Nicholas should weaken some more today and become a tropical depression by Wednesday. But it's still packing a drenching punch. It's "expected to produce additional rainfall of 5 to 10 inches from the upper Texas coastal area into central to southern Louisiana, far southern Mississippi and far southern Alabama, with isolated storm totals of 20 inches across central to southern Louisiana," the hurricane center says. "Life-threatening flash flooding impacts,...
    The Texas pro-life organization that spearheaded the state’s Heartbeat Act reported its Houston headquarters and surrounding offices evacuated Friday over a bomb threat. Texas Right to Life reported early Saturday morning in a press statement its staff called local authorities at about 10:15 a.m. Friday after receiving an emailed bomb threat.

    As humanity continues its search for life in the universe, a renowned astrobiologist says we should expect to find viruses if extraterrestrials exist. Theoretical physicist and astrobiologist Paul Davies said it's likely that viruses exist if complex life also exists, noting they would all be part of a broader spectrum. 'Viruses actually form part of the web of life,' Davies, the director of The Beyond Center at Arizona State University said in an interview with The Guardian. 'I would expect that if you've got microbial life on another planet, you're bound to have – if it's going to be sustainable and sustained – the full complexity and robustness that will go with being able to exchange genetic information.'  Astrobiologist Paul Davies says humanity should expect to find viruses if extraterrestrials exist They're all part of a broader spectrum, as 'viruses ... form part of the web of life,' Davies (pictured) said In June, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said humanity is 'not alone' in the universe after reviewing the Pentagon's declassified report about unexplained aerial phenomena.   Davies, whose new...

                      by Mary Margaret Olohan  A federal judge blocked a pro-life law Tuesday that would have banned almost all abortions in Arkansas, calling the law an “imminent threat” to women seeking abortions. Judge Kristine Baker issued a preliminary injunction blocking authorities from enforcing the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act until she issues a final ruling, according to the Washington Post. The law was set to go into effect July 28. Republican Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed the bill into law in March, banning all abortions except in cases when the abortion would save the life of the mother. The law, which did not make exceptions for rape or incest, is considered one of the strictest pro-life laws in the country. “I signed SB6 because of my sincere and long-held pro-life convictions,” Hutchinson said in a Wednesday statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “The court struck down the law because it is in conflict with Roe v. Wade.” “This legislation had the dual purpose of protecting Arkansas’s unborn and challenging long-standing Supreme Court precedent regarding abortion,”...

    Republican Indiana Sen. Mike Braun suggested to Attorney General Merrick Garland Wednesday that a report on domestic violence extremism placed disproportionate interest on the pro-life movement in a “wild attack” that identified “abortion related violent extremists” as a principal threat. Garland testified before a Senate subcommittee Wednesday where Braun brought up a declassified intelligence report on domestic violence extremism released by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) in March. That report, Braun said, identified abortion related violent extremists as a principal threat. (RELATED: Police Made 4 Arrests For Defacing Property As DC Faced Occasional, Destructive Riots. Then They Arrested 2 Pro-Lifers For Writing ‘Black Preborn Lives Matter’) “To me this seemed like kind of a wild attack on the pro-life community,” Braun said. “It did not list groups like BLM and Antifa, who have had a clear recent record of violent acts.” “So can you explain what that was about?,” Braun asked. “Why there would have been focus on that, and has there been a rash of incidents related to it?” Garland said that the report described leading threats that were...

                      by Mckenna Dallmeyer  After Duke University decided to end recruitment of freshmen by Greek and non-Greek selective living groups, nine fraternities decided to disaffiliate from the Interfraternity Council, and thus from the university itself. Duke University has made several changes to Greek life since the hiring of former Tufts University dean of student affairs Mary Pat McMahon. McMahon is now the vice president and vice provost for student affairs at Duke. McMahon collaborated with the Office of Undergraduate Education to create a new committee called the Next Generation Living and Learning 2.0 Committee in 2020. The committee seeks to “build a joyful and intentional 4-year residential experience that promotes growth, meaningful inclusion, and health, and that is distinctly Duke.” In November, the committee announced its decision to delay Panhellenic and Interfraternity Council (IFC) recruitment of freshmen. “Panhellenic & IFC can recruit sophomores, juniors, and seniors. As shared in the NGLLE 2.0 document in November, no first-year students can join at this time. [Multicultural Greek Council] & [National Pan-Hellenic Council] can recruit students of any class...
    By Colin Packham (Reuters) - New Zealand police said on Thursday they have arrested two people following a threat made against the mosques that were the scene of mass murder by a white supremacist nearly two years ago. Police said an online threat was made earlier this week against the Al Noor mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre, which were targeted in New Zealand's most deadly shooting in 2019. No information about the nature of the threat was supplied and neither suspect has been named. No charges have yet been laid, police said. "Any messages of hate or people wanting to cause harm in our community will not be tolerated - it's not the Kiwi way," said John Price, Canterbury District Commander Superintendent in an emailed statement. New Zealand is heightened alert ahead of the March 15 anniversary of Christchurch attack. Armed with high-capacity semi-automatic weapons, Australian Brenton Tarrant killed 51 people and injured dozens more after opening fire on worshippers at the two mosques, livestreaming the attacks on Facebook before being arrested. In August, Tarrant was sentenced to life in prison...
    In a cabinet meeting Wednesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani issued President Donald Trump a death threat and vowed to get revenge for the death of Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) on Friday described the Chinese coronavirus as the “greatest threat to life in Los Angeles that we have ever faced” — a description that follows his urge for residents to “cancel everything.” “So often in this crisis, it can be so confusing. Orders come down from the state, from our county. We’re not sure what they mean when they come into effect,” Garcetti said as he attempted to clarify the layers of restrictions. “Oftentimes, with no notice, our life just changes like that, what we can and can’t do, what we’re supposed and not supposed to do,” he continued. “And so each of these evening briefings I try to give you the hard truths, but also explain what’s going on.” Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has divided the state into three regions, while local governments, such as cities and counties, implement their own restrictions. Garcetti explained that the best thing to do in the face of the confusion stemming from the layers of restrictions is to “just be smart and stay apart.” “This is the...

    Former President Bill Clinton may have seen his wife’s Oval Office ambitions as a threat, a one-time top adviser said in a blistering new interview. Longtime Bubba confidante Doug Band dished to Vanity Fair about Clinton’s oftentimes unhinged behavior on the 2008 primary campaign trail — saying he thinks the outbursts were caused by a desire for Hillary to lose. “He was used to it being all about him, and if she won, it would be all about her,” Band said. Band rose from being Clinton’s White House body man to his most trusted post-presidency aide — before being exiled after a falling out. He said his former boss wasn’t ready for such a big life change. “That’s not how [Bill] lived his life for the four decades leading up to that election.” The ex-president’s outbursts while he campaigned for his wife were so notable that top Democratic officials asked him to tone it down. Some commentators even accused Clinton of “playing the race card” with his attacks on Barack Obama. At the time, Band said he attributed...

    The extent of the damage wrought by plastic on our environment is well-known, so much so that plastic pollution has become a full-blown environmental crisis. And that’s not an exaggeration, it’s also now estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.  What’s more, scientists have just confirmed that there is another huge plastic garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean. And it is bigger than Texas. Every year, we produce 300 million tons of plastic and around 8.8 million tons of it get dumped in the oceans, threatening countless animals, many of which are on the verge of extinction as a result. Even still, this harmful material is steeped in the majority of products we use on a daily basis, often making it really hard to cut down on our plastic use, even if we really want to – simply because there is just so much of it all around us. Even when we do away with plastic bags and bottles – as we should – there still remains the issue of plastic packaging that now comes with virtually everything. As one of the greatest threats to our oceans and the animals that...
    VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria plans to make it possible for courts to imprison those convicted of terrorism-related offences for as long as they are deemed a threat, the government said on Wednesday. The move follows a shooting rampage in Vienna last week in which a convicted jihadist who had been released early from prison killed four people and was shot dead by police. The 20-year-old gunman had been sentenced to 22 months for trying to join Islamic State in Syria. Austria has admitted to an intelligence failure in the run-up to the attack. "If a mentally abnormal criminal can be locked up for life because he is a threat, then a terrorist who poses a threat can be locked up for life," conservative Chancellor Sebastian Kurz told a news conference on a package of planned anti-terrorism measures. Kurz said that could become an option for courts when sentencing those convicted of jihadist crimes. For those who have already served their sentence, Austria would plan more systematic monitoring through electronic tagging. Last week's attack was the first such deadly militant assault...

    He is the mayor of Anchorage, Alaska no longer—or at least he won’t be once Friday arrives. Until then, Ethan Berkowitz (D), a married man and a father, isn’t much interested in answering the press’s questions about an “inappropriate messaging relationship” he had with a local news anchor who later threatened to kill him and his wife. Berkowitz, 58, is opting instead to leave public office as quietly as possible after releasing a disturbing voicemail that was left for him by YourAlaskaLink anchor Maria Athens, 41. The voicemail, which contained anti-Semitic remarks and at least two death threats, featured Athens repeatedly and angrily calling Berkowitz a “motherfucker” as she claimed he was a “pedophile.” As if that makes sense. Athens threatened to expose Berkowitz in an Oct. 9 news report saying that he had posted naked pictures of himself on an “underage girl’s website.” Anchorage Police and the FBI investigated Athens’s claim and found no evidence of criminal conduct. In addition, the story she threatened to expose on her show never aired and was discredited by her employer, the Fox/ABC station (KTBY and KYUR)...
    Left-wing figures across the board demanded the remaining presidential debates be canceled because the entire spectacle, they say, was “stupid” and future debates would serve as a “danger to public safety and a direct threat to Black life.” Former MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, for example, stated the debates should be dropped because they are “now a danger to public safety and a direct threat to Black life”: Yes. Cancel them. The debates are now a danger to public safety and a direct threat to Black life.

    Microscopic fibres from blue denim jeans have been found in the Arctic for the first time, a new study claims.  Scientists discovered indigo denim microfibers in the North American waters, which are shed during laundering, enter waterways and can be ingested by fish.   Indigo denim fibres also make up almost a quarter of microfibres in the Great Lakes in and around the Canada-US border and  a fifth of clothing fragments in the the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the experts reveal.  Their experiments also showed about 50,000 microscopic denim fragments are shed in a single domestic wash, despite its reputation as a robust textile.  One practical solution to the problem would be for consumers to wash their jeans and other textiles more infrequently.  A previous study also found that clothing may be more prone to shredding microscopic plastic fibres into our waterways if it has been cut during manufacturing with scissors as opposed to lasers.     Images of an indigo denim fibre identified as cotton found in (C) Arctic sediments, (D) Great Lakes fish, and (E) wastewater treatment plants effluent and (F) a...
    Louisiana Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards told "Your World" Wednesday that Hurricane Laura could be the strongest storm to hit the southwestern part of the state in more than six decades. "Things are very, very serious," Edwards told host Neil Cavuto. "We have a storm that’s a Category 4. It’s going to make landfall just after midnight. It continues to grow in size and intensity and quite frankly the storm surge is going to be a huge threat to life and, in fact, the National Weather Service took the unprecedented step of saying the storm surge is going to be unsurvivable. "We need everybody paying close attention to [and] following the directions of the local elected officials but this is a big one, perhaps the strongest storm to hit southwest Louisiana since Hurricane Audrey in 1957." Audrey made landfall as a category 3 storm and wreaked havoc on the offshore oil industry in the Gulf of Mexico. It caused more than 400 deaths caused a storm surge that reached as far as 20 miles inland.

    Police have caused outrage by asking topless female sunbathers to get dressed on a beach in the south of France.  Two gendarmes in Sainte-Marie-la-Mer, 70 miles south of Montpellier, asked three female sunbathers to put their tops on last week after a holidaymaker complained. The move caused a public outcry, with politicians from the centre, left and right uniting in condemnation - with one branding it a 'threat to our culture'. Gendarmes have sparked outrage in France after asking three women who were sunbathing topless to cover up, prompting a politician to call it 'a threat to our culture' (file image) Topless sunbathing first gained a foothold in France in the 1960s, as second-wave feminism swept through Europe and women demanded the same right to tan their upper bodies as men. Images of Brigitte Bardot sunbathing topless on the Cote D'Azur the same decade helped to make the gesture fashionable, while denunciations by the Vatican and Spanish church only increased its appeal. But it was in the 1970s, after a conservative attempt to ban the practice was defeated, that it became...
    She is being held in solitary confinement with the lights of her cell kept on constantly – in a jail where conditions have been compared to those of a Third World country. Could there be a harsher introduction to life inside the Metropolitan Detention Center – a bleak high-rise concrete fortress in the Brooklyn district of New York – for Ghislaine Maxwell? Even without the extra security precautions (because she is considered at risk of self-harm and a potential target for other inmates) conditions inside the MDC, as this maximum security establishment is commonly known, are grim indeed. 'The most troubled federal facility in the prison system' is how a former governor recently described the jail. Considering the US system includes such notorious names San Quentin and Rikers Island, it is quite some claim.
