African swine fever struggles continue in China as virus found in feed ingredients

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As of early 2019, China has reported more than 100 cases of African swine fever (ASF) in 19 provinces and four municipalities, including Beijing, for a total of 23 distinct geographic areas. Recent outbreaks have been reported in Guangdong and Fujian provinces. However, a new case in the north’s Heilongjiang province has affected a farm with 73,000 pigs, the largest farm yet to report a case of the deadly disease.On Dec. 25, Chinese officials announced the detection of ASF virus in some protein powders made using pork blood manufactured by a Tianjin-based company. The raw materials for the batches were from 12 slaughter and processing plants in Tianjin. The new ASF case occurred despite the farm banning of the use of food waste and pig blood as raw materials in the production of feed for pigs, in a bid to halt the spread of the disease.In a related move, China recently announced that slaughterhouses will need to run a test for ASF virus on pig products before selling them. Slaughterhouses must slaughter the pigs from different origins separately. They can only sell the products if blood of the same batch of pigs is tested negative for African swine fever virus. If an ASF outbreak is found, slaughterhouses must cull all pigs to be slaughtered and suspend operations for at least 48 hours, according to the regulation, which will go into effect Feb. 1.last_img read more

On May 2, 2000, at an order from the U.S. President, Selective Availability (the intentional degradation of the GPS signal available to civilians) was turned off. Civilian GPS devices instantly became 10 times more accurate. The original geocache was placed one day later. It was hidden in the U.S. state of Oregon on May 3, 2000.In the geocaching community, we refer to the demise of Selective Availability as the “flipping of the great blue switch.” Although there never was a literal switch, the results are undeniable. Geocaching spread around the globe. Now you can use Geocaching.com, or one of the Geocaching.com smartphone apps to embark on adventures to more than 1.7 million active geocaches hidden around the world. The geocaching community has ballooned from that original small group of GPS enthusiasts to more than five million people.Connect with your geocaching community.

“Likejacking” Takes Off on Facebook

first_imgsarah perez Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Security researchers are warning of the newest Facebook threat, something they’re calling “likejacking,” a Facebook-enabled clickjacking attack that tricks users into clicking links that mark the clicked site as one of your Facebook “likes.” These likes then show up on your profile and, of course, in your Facebook News Feed where your friends can see the link and click it, allowing the vicious, viral cycle to continue. According to security firm Sophos, hundreds of thousands of users have already fallen for this new “likejacking” trick thanks to the clever and tantalizing linkbait the spammers use to entice people to click their links. For example:“LOL This girl gets OWNED after a POLICE OFFICER reads her STATUS MESSAGE.”“This man takes a picture of himself EVERYDAY for 8 YEARS!!”“The Prom Dress That Got This Girl Suspended From School.”After clicking through on a link, victims don’t get to see the promised content, but rather a blank page reading “click here to continue.” This page contains the clickjacking worm (Troj/Iframe-ET) embedded via an invisible link. Click anywhere on the page and the message is posted to your profile and News Feed, allowing the worm to further its spread. This particular exploit is made possible by way of Facebook’s new like button and its associated developer code. According to the like button documentation, the buttons can be customized with meta data that includes things like the title of the Web page, the name of the website and the URL of a picture for the page. By customizing these fields, spammers and hackers can easily create links that are, in fact, malicious “likes.” Told You SoThe popularity of this particular attack vector is not surprising. Soon after the launch of the Facebook like button, we reported on its potential as a threat, noting how incredibly easy it is to create like buttons that link to anything on the Web – even pages you have never visited. It was only a matter of time before spammers and hackers started exploiting this weakness for their own purposes. (Frankly, we’re surprised it took this long.) The problem has to do with the overly simple way Facebook has implemented the “like button” feature. Non-developers can plug a URL into a wizard that generates code that can be copied and pasted anywhere on the Web. Like buttons created this way or manually, via handwritten code, will function properly even if they point to a webpage that’s on a different domain from the page where the button is being hosted. Kyle Bragger, a Web entrepreneur who just launched Forrst, an online community for developers and designers, warned Facebook users of “like fraud” back in April by way of a personal blog post. To circumvent potential likejacking attempts such as these, he created a Facebook “like” bookmarklet that safely “likes” the page you’re on, allowing you to feel secure that you’re actually liking the real thing and not some shady linkbait. (Or likebait, if you will). If you’ve been hit with this likejacking attack, the best you can do is remove the like from your profile and delete the post from your News Feed. You might want to apologize to your friends with a Facebook status update, too.

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say AC Milan coach Gattuso: No reason to feel intimidated facing Juventusby Carlos Volcano9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan coach Rino Gattuso insists there’s no reason to feel intimidated facing Juventus in the Supercoppa.The match is being held in Saudi Arabia.Gattuso said, “I felt the tension more as a player than a Coach. It’s completely different. We are up against a side that has been dominant in Italy and Europe for eight years, they know how to play for trophies, but it’s important for us to be here and feel this experience too.“We’ve got to play our game with a relaxed approach, because the strongest team doesn’t always win in a one-off match. We want to see a great performance to beat Juve tomorrow, we’re well aware of that.“I am a man who often follows his instinct and for the last five years in this profession my focus has been on being as credible as possible in the eyes of my players. I say with great honesty, I am not thinking of myself, but what this game can represent for my players.“I want to help them realise we can do it, we can raise the bar and push through the limits. I don’t want to see us panic or fall apart at the first error. I don’t want to see a repeat of Olympiacos, a game we had in our grasp and threw it away. At the first error, we lose all our confidence. It has been happening to Milan for a long time, even before I got here, and I want to see this team maintain its courage.” last_img read more

The new campaign launches today with a PSA starring actress, AnnaSophia Robb, who steps into “The Anti-Food Waste Kitchen” to show how thoughtful food consumption choices today can solve food access issues now and in the future.Today, 842 million — nearly 12 percent of the world’s population — struggle with hunger, including 13 million kids and teenagers in America. By 2050, it is projected there will be 9.2 billion people on the planet and recent estimates suggest food production will need to increase by 70 percent to feed everyone.

It’s my hope that through Feeding Better Futures my generation can create real solutions that can turn this issue around!”Young people can sign up for the campaign at Dosomething.org/food or by texting FOOD to 38383.
