    Various media outlets are reporting that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is cooperating with the House Select Committee on January 6, and they are touting the threat of jail time as one of the reasons for that willingness to cooperate. However, Meadows said that cooperation had been long in the works, even despite threatening comments from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) touting a forthcoming January 6 committee decision on possible contempt charges for Meadows. During an interview with Mobile, AL radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Meadows said Schiff’s remarks did not change anything and that he believed the Democrat-led January 6 Committee would be disappointed when they find former President Donald Trump and the West Wing did not have “advance knowledge” on the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot. “It doesn’t change anything,” he said. “We’ve been working on an accommodation, Jeff, for a long time. What I told them is if I can share with the committee non-privileged information that doesn’t waive the executive privilege that Donald Trump has put forth — it is not my privilege to waive,...
    Facebook’s chief of global safety said Tuesday she couldn’t say whether the company suffered a data breach in the wake of Monday’s outage. “Do we know if there was a data breach?” MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked Facebook Director of Global Safety Antigone Davis in a morning interview. “I don’t believe there was a data breach, but I don’t have that information, so I am not the right person to ask,” Davis replied. Facebook and its subsidiaries, Instagram and WhatsApp, suffered a half-day outage around the globe on Monday. Service was restored only after employees reportedly gained physical access to reset servers in Santa Clara, Calif. Davis delivered her interview the same morning that former Facebook product manager Frances Haugen, a self-styled whistleblower, appeared before Congress to testify on the company’s practices. The 37-year-old left the company in May with a trove of documents she passed to The Wall Street Journal, which she said illustrated the company’s indifference to harm it had caused among young people and its other users.

    A NEONATAL ICU nurse has been fired from a Florida hospital after she cruelly mocked a newborn baby with a birth defect on social media in a pair of sickening posts. Sierra Samuels, who had been working at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital since 2016, was fired following a several-week investigation into a patient privacy breach, officials confirmed on Friday. 5Sierra Samuels was fired from Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital earlier this monthCredit: @__nylemabugg/Instagram 5The sickening posts mocked the newborn baby, who had been born with their intestines outside of their bodyCredit: CBS4 The heartless nurse shared two pictures to her Instagram page of a newborn suffering from gastroschisis — a birth defect of the abdominal wall that causes a baby's intestines to protrude from the body. The first post read: "My night was going great then boom!", along with an image of the child, CBSMIAMI reported. Samuels then followed up the post with a second image of the newborn with the sickening caption: "Your intestines posed [sic] to be inside not outside baby #gastoschisis."

    Rep. Liz Cheney leapt to the defense on Wednesday of Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for 'standing in the breach' in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 attack on Congress and apologizing for attacks by her Republican colleagues.  Milley was appearing before Congress for a second day to answer questions about the withdrawal from Afghanistan. He has become a hate figure for some Republicans amid reports he tried to rein in Donald Trump's worst impulses at the end of his presidency. On Wednesday he was accused of 'dereliction of duty' and asked to resign during a hearing on Afghanistan. Cheney began her allotted five minutes by comparing Milley and his concerns with her colleagues who were prepared to overlook the violence of Jan. 6.  'General Milley, you found yourself in your constitutionally prescribed role, standing in the breach,' said Cheney, who was ousted from a party leadership position for criticizing Trump and one of only two Republicans on the House committee investing the Jan. 6 violence. 'And for any member of this committee, for any American...
    Hacker group Anonymous has released a massive trove of names, passwords and addresses of far-right website administrators, that experts are calling the 'Panama Papers of hate groups'. The intrusion targeted Epik, a Washington-based domain registrar that provides a safe haven to far-right websites, some of whom had been turned away from more mainstream web hosting services. The 150 gigabytes of data are a 'who's who' of Internet - and real-life - trolls. Epik has hosted QAnon home base 8chan, neo-Nazi news site The Daily Stormer and the far-right social media platforms Gab and Parler. Experts say that the vast amount of data could take years to sift through.  'It's massive. It may be the biggest domain-style leak I've seen and, as an extremism researcher, it's certainly the most interesting,' Elon University computer science professor Megan Squire told the Washington Post. 'It's an embarrassment of riches - stress on the embarrassment.'  The Anonymous data breach targeted Epik, a domain registrar known for hosting websites that promote far-right conspiracy theories like QAnon.

    (CNN)An unusual security breach of an election system in a rural Colorado county has set off a criminal investigation and prompted state authorities to sideline a Republican election official in a fresh display of how debunked claims of a stolen 2020 presidential election continue to resonate across the country.The saga unfolding in Mesa County, Colorado, centers on Tina Peters, a Republican county clerk and recorder and supporter of former President Donald Trump. Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, a Democrat, has blamed Peters for a leak of closely guarded election passwords that ended up on a QAnon-affiliated Telegram channel. In a statement, Griswold's office also said hard drive images from the county's election servers were obtained by conspiracy theorists. One of the hard drive images "is believed to have been taken on May 23," the statement said -- the same day that the secretary of state said that Peters, another staffer and a non-employee entered a secure room where election equipment was stored. The access took place on a Sunday evening, outside of normal business hours, Griswold's office said.Griswold told...
    Two Connecticut girls have been arrested after one allegedly stabbed the other on a bike trail. The incident took place around 7:30 p.m. in Windham County when Connecticut State Police responded to a report of a stabbing located on Hilltop Drive in the town of Windham. Responding troopers located the victim, a 12-year-old girl who sustained minor injuries and was transported to an area hospital.  An investigation revealed the incident stemmed from an ongoing conflict between the juvenile victim and the accused, a 13-year-old girl, state police said. The accused juvenile was located, detained without incident, and a knife was recovered at the scene.   As a result of the investigation, both girls were issued juvenile summonses.   The victim was charged with breach of peace, and the accused was charged with breach of peace and assault.  Both girls were released to their respective guardians.
    On August 21, Manny Pacquiao and Errol Spence will meet in Las Vegas. At least for now. The fight has been in the air for weeks and remains the same. This Thursday we will get rid of doubts, since an Orange County judge, belonging to the superior court of California, will decide on the viability of the lawsuit on the agreed date. The situation reached this point after Audie Attar, CEO of Paradigm Sports Management, requested injunctions to stop the lawsuit. That company denounced Pacquiao for breach of contract and wants to dynamite the confrontation until everything is resolved. According to information from Dan Rafael (World Boxing News), this move by the athlete management company angered PacMan, who replied with another lawsuit to Paradigm Sports. The Filipino filed that complaint, in the same court and on the same day (last Friday), claiming “breach of conduct, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud.” With these charges they try to show that the promoter’s first claim is based on false information and has caused serious damage to the former world champion. The Pacquiao...

    The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Sunday that masks are a 'must have' at Tokyo medal ceremonies after swimmers were seen taking off masks on the medal podium and hugging other competitors in violation of COVID-19 rules. Masks are mandatory across all Olympic venues, both inside and outside for all athletes, staff and media, as part of Games organisers' strict measures to combat the coronavirus.

    The National Guard has been preparing for a major cyber attack that would bring down utilities across the US, after the hack of the Colonial Pipeline brought the nation's fuel supply to its knees. Troops from across the New England region practiced tackling a massive simulated breach across critical infrastructure sectors including power, water and gas during a two-week training exercise this month. The exercise involved a situation where a huge cyber attack targeted utilities on the West Coast before moving east across the country.  Much like in a real-life scenario, National Guardsmen worked alongside government agencies - including the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and US Cyber Command - as well as private sector utility partners to respond to the crisis. While the crisis was a simulation this time round, such an attack is looking increasingly possible.   A series of recent, devastating attacks have sent warning signs about the risk cybersecurity breaches can bring to national infrastructure.  When the Colonial Pipeline was targeted by hackers in May, it was forced...

    Lawmakers in Oregon late Thursday unanimously voted to oust their Republican colleague who helped far-right rioters get into the State Capitol last year. State Representative Mike Nearman was the only lawmaker to vote against his own removal, a press release from Oregon Democrats said, days after a surfaced video reported by The Oregonian last Friday showed him coaching people on how to successfully breach the building. Original security footage from Dec. 21 showed him exiting the Capitol through a door where protesters were gathered, allowing them to get inside before being confronted by police. “His actions were blatant and deliberate, and he has shown no remorse for jeopardizing the safety of every person in the Capitol that day,” Democratic Speaker Tina Kotek said in a statement after the vote. (RELATED: Oregon GOP Refers To Capitol Riot As ‘False Flag’) Oregon State Troopers stand outside the State Capitol in March.

    (CNN)The Oregon state representative who faced backlash after a video surfaced of him appearing to tell protesters how to get access to the closed state Capitol has been expelled from the Oregon House of Representatives. Rep. Mike Nearman, a Republican, was expelled from the legislative body on Thursday night with a bipartisan vote of 59-1 on House Resolution 3, a press release from House Speaker Tina Kotek said. Nearman was the only no vote.According to the resolution, Nearman "engaged in disorderly behavior" during a special session held on December 21. It also outlines findings from an independent investigator who found that Nearman "intentionally aided demonstrators in breaching Capitol security and gaining unauthorized access to the Capitol, leading to injury and property destruction." The resolution provides details on a recently surfaced video reported by Oregon Public Broadcasting, which appeared to show Nearman telling a group of protesters how to gain access to the state Capitol "with assistance from someone already inside." At the time, access to the Capitol had been limited to "authorized personnel" only due to Covid restrictions.The resolution also...

    A Morris County man and self-described “Proud Boy” arrested in connection to the Jan. 6 breach of the US Capitol building claimed that he “led the storm” while bragging to his mother and others on Facebook the same day, authorities said. Rockaway resident Shawn Price, 26, appeared in court Tuesday on federal charges including violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, obstruction of law enforcement during a civil disorder, and obstruction of justice, the US Attorney’s Office said. Price allegedly held a leadership position in the northern New Jersey Proud Boys chapter and attended multiple events and rallies between November and January. The Proud Boys describe themselves as a “pro-Western fraternal organization for men who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world; aka Western Chauvinists,” the attorney’s office said.  Price was seen in photos of the breach helping to push others into a line of police officers as they resisted and deployed a chemical irritant attempting to break up the crowd, authorities said. The day of the breach, Price allegedly sent messages on Facebook to his mother and...

    Facebook is expecting more scraping incidents like a security breach that saw data from some 533 million users exposed, a leaked internal memo has revealed. The email was intended for Facebook's PR staff in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, but was accidentally sent to journalists at the Belgian publication Data News on April 8. Rather than exclusively focusing on the security problem, the social media firm is planning to spin future leaks as a 'sector problem' as to 'normalise' the issue.  The leak, involving data on users from across 106 countries, occurred back in 2019, but the trove of personal information was only freely published this year. Before being posted on a hacker forum, however, the database was sold and resold privately by various cybercriminals who likely took advantage of the information. Among users whose data was publicly leaked was Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and platform co-founders Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz.

    President Joe Biden on Thursday announced new sanctions against Russia and expelled 10 diplomats in retaliation for the Kremlin's interference in American elections, its aggressive actions in the Ukraine, and the SolarWinds cyber hack. The White House also harshly denounced Moscow for offering the Taliban bounties for U.S. troops serving in Afghanistan. The United States said it was taking the action to 'counter Russia’s harmful foreign activities that threaten the national security and foreign policy of the United States.'  In a series of actions on Thursday, the United States sanctioned 32 Russian entities and individual along with six technology companies, formally attributed the SolarWinds cyber breach to Russian intelligence agencies, and accused Moscow of still trying to hack American targets. 'The President signed this sweeping new authority to confront Russia's continued and growing malign behavior,' said Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen in a statement. The Treasury Department is in charge of carrying out the sanctions. 'Treasury is leveraging this new authority to impose costs on the Russian government for its unacceptable conduct, including by limiting Russia's ability to finance its activities...
    All senior members of the Royal Family will now wear mourning dress at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral on Saturday. The Daily Mail understands that, in an unprecedented about-turn, a last minute decision, approved by the Queen, has been made that no royals will wear military uniform in order to present a united family front. Behind the scenes, courtiers have been racked by concern that Prince Harry, who was forced to give up his honorary military titles after he acrimoniously quit royal duties and moved to the US, would be the only senior royal not in uniform. Harry, 36, is understood to have wanted to wear the Blues and Royals dress uniform he wore on his wedding day in May 2018. As a former captain with the Household Cavalry, however, he is entitled only to wear a suit, with any medals he has been awarded in the course of his duties or by the Queen. By contrast the Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Wessex and Princess Royal would have been, by convention for a royal ceremonial funeral, in...

    Piney Point, the former phosphate mining facility that leaked millions of gallons of wastewater near Tampa Bay, will soon take steps toward "permanent closure," Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Tuesday.  A leak broke through one of the facility's wastewater ponds last month, spewing millions of gallons of wastewater into the environment. Though officials got the leak under control last week and were able to redirect it to stay onsite instead of flowing into a nearby creek, part of that process entailed pumping untreated wastewater from the reservoir into Port Manatee, which leads into Tampa Bay.  DeSantis spoke from Port Manatee on Tuesday, saying "we've made good strides" since he visited the facility on Easter Sunday, and that officials have "mitigated the imminent threat to public safety."  On Saturday, a steel plate was installed in the leaking south pond to stop the breach. The pond still has 221 million gallons of waste- and stormwater, according to the state's most recent data. Piezometers have also been installed around the pond to detect any water pressure changes and "help ensure the integrity...

    New York (CNN Business)If you were a Facebook user in 2019, it's possible that your information is among the millions of records posted on a website used by hackers. Cyber intelligence firm Hudson Rock over the weekend revealed that personal information from 533 million Facebook accounts was leaked, including names, phone numbers, Facebook IDs, locations, account creation dates, birthdays, relationship statuses, bios and, in some cases, email addresses.

    By now, you have probably heard of the huge Facebook data breach, in which upwards of 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries had personal data leaked online, including phone numbers, Facebook IDs, birthdates — you name it.

One well-known site that tracks data breaches is Have I Been Pwned. Just follow the link to the site and put in your email address. You will find out not only if you’ve been part of the Facebook breach, but also any other breaches in which your data may have been compromised.

    Balcony police, neighborhood ‘gestapo’ or ladder sheriff. No matter the term, it is all the same: expressions that emerged at the beginning of the confinement, in March 2020, to describe those who appeared on the street to monitor – and censor – the behavior of their fellow citizens. In the purest James Stewart style in ‘Rear Window’, part of the Spaniards occupied their confinement in controlling passers-by and reproaching them for their comings and goings at a time when the population was isolated at home. Now, this movement has been reactivated in the form of complaints for failing to comply with anti-COVID measures. However, the two scenarios are far from the same. A year ago, neighbors judged pedestrians without knowing their circumstances and the boos were targeted, in some cases, by health workers who returned from their shift at the hospital or parents who were walking with their children with autism spectrum disorders. At present, these police officers on the balcony report clearly punishable events, such as music that is too loud, an excessive influx into a home or...
    Washington (CNN)After infiltrating US government computer networks early last year as part of the SolarWinds data breach, Russian hackers then turned their attention to the very people whose job was to track them down. Over the course of a few months, as US officials remained unaware of the breach, hackers identified a handful of key cyber security officials and analysts who would be among the first to respond once the hack was detected, so-called 'threat hunters,' and attempted to access their email accounts, according to two sources familiar with the matter. While it is unclear if any of those accounts were compromised, sources say the fact that the hackers knew which working-level cybersecurity analysts at the Department of Homeland Security to go after suggests they were able to develop a much deeper understanding of US cyberdefenses than was previously known."It appears as if the Russian SolarWinds hackers possess granular information on personnel and who among them is likely to be involved in investigating the SolarWinds hack," said Cedric Leighton, a former NSA official and CNN military analyst. "This could mean...
    “Godzilla vs. Kong” begins, fittingly, with the big guy asleep. There is King Kong, colossus of the big screen, slowing waking on a mountainside. He rouses slowly in the morning sun from slumber before showering in a nearby waterfall. It’s, maybe, a little bit the same for the kind of movies King Kong symbolizes and still holds some dominion over: big spectacles of mass destruction made to be seen on equally towering screens. That kind of moviegoing has been been in hibernation for much of the past pandemic year. “Godzilla vs. Kong,” the only creature feature to dare wide release in some time, is a rock ‘em-sock ’em monster-movie revival with all the requisite explosions, inane plot twists and skyscraper smashing to satisfy most lovers of gigantic amphibians. Vive le cinéma! “Godzilla vs. Kong,” directed by Adam Wingard, follows in the very big but quickly forgotten footsteps of the 2014 reboot “Godzilla,” 2017’s Vietnam-set, “Apocalypse Now”-tinged sequel “Kong: Skull Island” and 2019’s “Godzilla: King of Monsters.” But, of course, the lineage is much longer than that.

    The Generalitat Valenciana has opened a file after the Real Madrid footballer Marcelo published a photograph this Sunday on the Malvarrosa beach despite the perimeter closure decreed in the community. This has been confirmed by sources from the regional administration, who recall that the breach of the perimeter closure of the Valencian Community could be sanctioned based on decree law 11/2020 sanctioning regime against non-compliance with the measures against Covid-19. On the Madrid player’s Instagram you can see a photograph of his family – all of them without a mask – on the Valencian beach with the message ‘Sun Sunday’. From the Generalitat they point out that the breach of a general order of confinement decreed is a minor infraction provided for in article 5.5 of the decree law.

                      by Ross Pomeroy  In one microscale step for machine, but a potentially significant leap for the treatment of brain cancer, researchers at the Harbin Institute of Technology in China have created controllable microrobots that can breach the blood-brain barrier and deliver cancer drugs to tumors in the brains of mice. They detailed their efforts in the journal Science Robotics. The blood-brain barrier is a layer of cells that prevents circulating blood and any potential pathogens in it from entering brain tissues. Though thin, it’s nearly impenetrable. Normally, that’s a good thing, but when the brain is afflicted with a malignant tumor, it’s not. Just as the blood-brain barrier blocks pathogens from passing, so, too it locks out cancer drugs. That leaves surgery and radiation therapy as the two primary treatments for brain cancer. Early-stage attempts have been made to temporarily disrupt the barrier, allowing treatments to pass, as well as to design nanoparticles so small that they can sneak through. These methods are progressing. The Harbin Institute of Technology researchers’ robotic approach is a novel one. Qiang He and...
    A Spanish rapper has been cleared of slicing off his British flatmate's penis after the Oxford graduate told judges he had mutilated himself because of gender issues. Andrew Breach, a 35-year-old English teacher, has also been told he will not face a perjury probe after the three sentencing judges turned down a request by prosecutors to charge him with false testimony.

    Cybersecurity responders are working around the clock to shore up networks hit by last week's hack of Microsoft's Exchange email service – an attack that has impacted hundreds of thousands of organizations worldwide. On Friday, the White House urged victims to patch systems and stressed the urgency: The window for updating systems could be measured in "hours, not days," a senior administration official said. "This is a crazy huge hack," Christopher Krebs, former director of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), tweeted last week. The fallout from the hack is still being measured. President Joe Biden has been briefed on the attack, and discussed it with leaders from India, Japan and Australia at a summit Friday, said National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan. The National Security Council has assembled a multi-agency government task force to address the massive breach. The breach follows last year's Russian-linked hack, which leveraged SolarWinds software to spread a virus across 18,000 government and private computer networks. The CEO of FireEye Kevin Mandia gives a tour of the cybersecurity company's unused office space in Reston,...
    It was all quiet at the US Capitol on Thursday, despite warnings about a possible plot by a militia group to storm the building. No disturbances were reported near the heavily-secured complex, with Capitol Police officers and members of the National Guard on high-alert. Authorities said Tuesday that a group of “militia violent extremists” had discussed plans in February to “take control of the US Capitol and remove Democratic lawmakers on or about March 4.” The threat appeared to be connected to a far-right conspiracy theory, mainly pushed by QAnon backers, that former President Donald Trump would rise again to power on March 4. That date was the original presidential inauguration day until 1933, when it was moved to Jan. 20. Leaders of the House of Representatives decided to scrap planned votes on Thursday over the report.

    The top intelligence officials of the FBI and Department of Homeland Security made a troubling acknowledgement in congressional testimony Wednesday: Neither agency had garnered intelligence indicating that supporters of former President Donald Trump would storm the U.S. Capitol on January 6 in an effort to overturn the November election results. The comments by Jill Sanborn, an FBI assistant director for intelligence, and Melissa Smislova, an acting undersecretary of DHS, represented the first public acknowledgement by top intelligence officials that neither agency saw the devastating attack coming. Testifying during a Senate hearing about the attack, Sanborn said that while the FBI had intelligence indicating that Trump supporters were traveling to Washington on January 6 and could be armed, "none of us had any intelligence suggesting that individuals were going to storm and breach the Capitol.” Jill Sanborn, assistant director of the FBI's Counterterrorism Division, speaks during a Senate joint committee hearing, March 3, 2021, examining the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol in Washington.“That was the intelligence that we lacked,” Sanborn told members of the Senate Rules and Homeland...

The request for a $619.33 million budget for the department in fiscal year 2022, Pittman argues, is specifically 'centered on member security' outside Washington – since she...
