WASHINGTON — Cybersecurity concerns over President Barack Obama’s health care website have been cleared up through testing, a government security professional who initially had qualms about the system assured lawmakers Thursday.But a congressional hearing featuring three senior technology experts from within the Health and Human Services Department also revealed a broader internal debate before the hapless launch of HealthCare.gov last fall.One of the witnesses, HHS Chief Information Officer Frank Baitman, said he personally brought security issues to the attention of the department’s second-in-command, Bill Corr, as well as another senior official. It’s unclear what, if anything, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and White House officials were told.The maddening technical problems that frustrated consumers for weeks as they tried to sign up for health insurance would pale in comparison if a serious security breach compromised the names, Social Security numbers, incomes and other personal information of millions of Americans.Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are trying to build a case that the administration recklessly ignored security concerns to meet a self-imposed Oct. 1 deadline for flipping the switch. The administration — and Democratic lawmakers– say all issues were addressed through special vigilance instituted just before the launch. While Republicans have raised questions, they have yet to find a smoking gun.
New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday moved a statutory resolution in the Lok Sabha to extend the President’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir for six more months with effect from July 3 and said Assembly elections will be held by the year end. While tabling the resolution, Shah said that the Election Commission had agreed to postpone the Assembly elections and that these will be held after the upcoming Amarnath Yatra.

The Election Commission has decided to conduct the elections by the year end,” he said. “For the past several decades, the elections have not taken place in the state during these months.” The proposal to extend President’s rule was opposed by K. Premachandran of the Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) and Manish Tiwari of the Congress. Both argued that if the Lok Sabha polls could be held now, so can the Assembly elections.
The National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom) rejected NR Narayana Murthy’s comment wherein he called Indian IT firms as behaving like “immigration agents.” In an Economic Times article dated April 6, Murthy was quoted as saying: “My belief was that a corporation that has global aspiration has to be fair to its global employees. All Indian companies guarantee visas, they guarantee green cards. The whole exercise has become as if they are immigration agents. I am sorry to say that. Indian companies behave as if they are agents for their employees to cross the Atlantic.”The ET cited another report, saying that Murthy reportedly told this to a delegate at Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad. The chairman emeritus of Infosys said: it was “imperative for the IT companies to create local jobs as it was their responsibility to do so.” In 2010, Infosysprepared a model to help it reduce its dependence on H1 and L1 visas. The ‘extreme offshore’ model propagated by Murthy along with Kris Gopalakrishnan, however, failed to yield desired results, according to another report by the Business Standard.”I introduced it in 2011, but the model has not been pursued after my exit in 2014,” Murthy was quoted as saying.As the chairman of the software services company then, he had overseen the implementation of the model with an aim to achieve 95 percent offshore utilisation capabilities. His intention was to prepare the company to face an extreme anti-work visa posturing by the U.S. political parties. According to the BS report, the “model was not feasible” even a year after its implementation. Analysts also confirmed the company’s experimentation with the model fell short of expectation.IT industry body said Murthy’s statement was “not the view of the industry.” Nasscom President Chandrasekhar said: “… nor does it reflect the reality of what the industry is doing for companies in the US. The industry has evolved hugely over the years, and the value and efficiency they created for their customers is tremendous. One should also not forget that there is a skill shortage in the US.” With deals getting smaller and competition increasing, analysts believe, being closer to the customer matters. A close look at the industry reveals that good performers are the ones who have remained close to the customer, be it in sales or senior management or talent, they said.”I suppose they still work with a few clients but it did not have any major impact. Moreover it is not possible for the industry to be visa free. There is not enough talent in these markets,” said an analyst of a leading brokerage firm to the BS.Sanchit Gogia, chief analyst and CEO, Greyhound Research, explained that the Indian services model is just not about offshore. He added it has always been a calculated mix of three aspects –offshore, onshore and near shore — and investments over the years have gone to balance these three strategies.The recent two-fold hike in the U.S. visa fee for temporary immigrant workers (categorised as H1B and L1) and the number of such visas apportioned each year have grown to be the sticking points in India-U.S. relations. India’s largest IT service company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is the largest employer among Indian companies, both in the U.S and the European markets. The company has stepped up initiatives to hire from US campuses. Infosys, in 2014, had said its campus hiring in the US for the year stood at 250 and the company intended to push the number to 1,000.

Share Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg has named Houston lawyer John Raley to review the case of former Texas death row inmate Alfred Dewayne Brown to determine if Brown is actually innocent of the shooting death of a Houston police officer and eligible for nearly $2 million in state compensation.Brown was freed in 2015 after spending a decade on death row for the 2003 slaying of Officer Charles Clark during a robbery of a check-cashing store. Brown insisted he wasn’t involved. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals granted him a new trial, ruling his rights were violated because a detective failed to turn over telephone records that could have aided his defense.The previous district attorney, Devon Anderson, dropped charges but declined to pursue Brown’s actual innocence claim.

There are also services like computer access and job search help along with initiatives geared toward homeless patrons.The Central Library will have more time to offer those services now that they’re bringing back Sunday hours. They’ll be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.Assistant Director of Customer Experience Elizabeth Sargent said for the homeless in particular, the library is viewed as a safe place where they can meet with social service providers.“Many times customers want the support, need the help, but they’re not always comfortable going into that particular social service provider’s space,” explained Sargent.And with the searing summer heat, Sargent said the library can provide welcome relief.“About three weeks ago we were asked to open this library as a cooling center,” added Sargent. “And we saw over a 100 people in here with very little advertisement, simply because they had to get out of the heat. They had nowhere else to go.”The library can also serve as a lifeline for people of moderate means who need to get online. Deputy Assistant Director of Customer Experience Laurie Covington said their computers and hotspots get a lot of use.“Our libraries themselves are one of the biggest providers of wi-fi in the City of Houston just because all of our locations have wi-fi,” said Covington. “And now we’re expanding that so you can actually have wi-fi in your pocket, take it home with you, check it out for three weeks.”Covington and Sargent said Sundays are usually pretty busy at the Central Library. Since it’s the only Houston public library that’s open on Sunday, students use those hours to get homework help and it also gives researchers more time to work on projects. – / 6 00:00 /00:52 X Share

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) – Kenya’s Supreme Court on Tuesday said the execution of the nation’s March presidential election wasn’t perfect but that petitions to overturn the result did not prove President Uhuru Kenyatta was illegally elected.The court had announced its unanimous ruling upholding Kenyatta’s election in late March but on Tuesday released its 113-page written decision. The ruling said that petitions by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and civil rights activist Gladwell Otieno do not disclose “any profound irregularity in the management of the electoral process.” Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Kenyatta beat seven other presidential candidates with 50.07 percent of the vote. That slim margin over the needed 50 percent was challenged by Odinga _ who got 43 percent _ and civil society groups that complained of anomalies in the voting process.No major anomalies were found between the total number of registered voters and the total tally in the declaration of presidential election results, the court said.“Although, as we find, there were many irregularities in the data and information-capture during the registration process they were not so substantial as to affect the credibility of the electoral process,” the ruling said.Kenya held a largely peaceful election process, avoiding a repeat of the chaos that rocked the country following the flawed 2007 presidential election, when more than 1,000 people died in violent attacks.But the March 4 election did not go smoothly. An electronic voter ID system intended to prevent fraud failed for reasons yet to be explained by the electoral commission. Vote officials instead used manual voter rolls.After the polls closed, results were to be sent electronically to Nairobi, where officials would quickly tabulate a preliminary vote count in order to maximize transparency in light of the rigging allegations that dogged the 2007 vote. But that system failed, too. Election officials have indicated that computer servers overloaded but haven’t fully explained the problem.

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Comments Share Odinga’s lawyers had argued that the switch from electronic voter identification to manual voter roll was stage-managed to allow inflation of Kenyatta’s votes to take him past the 50 percent threshold. The Supreme Court said Kenya’s electoral commission had no choice but to turn to the manual registers, though it had major weaknesses.The court recommended an investigation into the acquisition of the computer systems that failed during the voting process. The court said there was questionable conduct by members of the electoral commission during the acquisition of the systems, and that prosecution of the suspects could be in order.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Source = Visit Sunshine Coast Palisade confirmed as Sunshine Coast Airport’s commercial partnerPalisade confirmed as Sunshine Coast Airport’s commercial partnerPalisade Investment Partners will be the Sunshine Coast Airport’s commercial operating partner in a deal worth more than half a billion dollars.Under the deal, the airport will continue to be owned by Sunshine Coast Council, with Palisade operating the asset under a 99 year lease.Palisade will be responsible for operating, investing and developing the airport and will oversee future negotiations with airlines to expand both domestic and international routes available from the Sunshine Coast.Mayor Mark Jamieson said that under the deal, the council would maintain responsibility for facilitating the proposed airport expansion project, which included construction of a new runway, apron expansion and related infrastructure.“Our council is delighted to be able to stand here today with our new commercial partner in the Sunshine Coast Airport and present this outstanding outcome for the people of the Sunshine Coast,” Mayor Jamieson said.“The total value to the Sunshine Coast community of the deal we have struck with Palisade is an estimated $605 million.“This reflects not only the fact that our airport is a high quality asset in one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, but also the enormous growth potential that it will deliver once the proposed airport expansion project is completed in 2020.“It is fair to say that today’s announcement represents the culmination of a journey that we have been on for well over three years.“It is the product of the extensive work council has undertaken to generate national and global interest in the airport – and indeed the Sunshine Coast itself – through our investment missions and the connections made with institutional and other significant investors in major infrastructure assets.“This helped to generate 17 expressions of interest from both domestic and international parties and heightened the competitive tension in securing the commercial partner in the Airport – all of which has been to council’s advantage.“Council has followed an extensive process which included preliminary market testing conducted by Royal Bank of Canada, followed by a call for Expressions of Interest which attracted global interest, an invitation to chosen respondents to submit indicative bids and then an invitation to submit binding bids.”Mayor Jamieson said Palisade would make lease payments totalling $82 million of which $67 million would be paid when they took control of the airport’s management, staff and non-land assets, expected to be by September 2017.Palisade has agreed to a further amount of $290 million to be paid for the construction of the new runway in 2022.Council will retain a financial interest in the operation of the Sunshine Coast Airport by way of an annual rental payment of 5% of gross revenue, conservatively equating to about $205 million over the 99 year life of the lease starting in 2017/18.Palisade will also take responsibility for future terminal development, thereby reducing the projected cost to council of the airport expansion project by $28 million.These four amounts see the total value of the deal worth an estimated $605 million to Council.Mayor Jamieson said that by Palisade taking responsibility for the future terminal development, the revised estimate for the airport expansion project delivered by Council was now $319 million.“Ensuring the budget estimates for the airport expansion project are met has been a key focus for council, and what we have been able to achieve here is a great outcome for our community,” he said.“Delivering the airport expansion is one of the region’s five game-changer projects identified in the Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy 2013-2033 and is an intrinsic element of this council’s long term vision for our region.“In entering this partnership with Palisade, council will be able to advance a number of important objectives.“Firstly, we will be able to ensure the new runway is built in accordance with the Environmental Impact Statement requirements and that it is delivered by 2020.“Secondly, the way that we have structured the arrangements will ensure the airport’s safe and efficient operations continue throughout the construction program and thereafter.“Thirdly, the investment by Palisade will fund the airport expansion costs, limiting any long term adverse impact on council’s financial position or on our ratepayers.“Our partnership with Palisade will also strengthen and grow the airport’s services and capabilities, contribute significantly to the economic growth of our region and at the same time, enable council to maintain an economic interest in the airport – thus ensuring ratepayers share in the airport’s performance into the future.”Palisade has substantial experience in the airport sector through its investment in Airport Development Group which owns the Darwin, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek airports.Palisade has also recently invested in Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2.Mayor Jamieson said all of the pieces of the puzzle were now in place to enable the expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport to proceed, which would enable this substantial asset to serve the needs of this community and surrounding regions for generations to come.“We have the major approvals in place,” he said.“The Federal Government has committed the $181 million loan which will assist council with the expansion project and now Palisade has been secured as our commercial partner to take the asset forward into its next phase.“The airport expansion project will contribute $4.1 billion to the Sunshine Coast economy between 2020 and 2040 and result in 3500 fewer dwellings being affected by noise when it is operational by Christmas 2020.“It will ensure we have an airport that can accommodate larger, more fuel efficient aircraft, enabling more direct flights to more locations in Australia, Asia and the Western Pacific.“Those new routes will boost our tourism and international trade and help our export businesses, particularly those operating in the food and agri-business sectors, so they get their products and services to markets faster and more efficiently.”The council anticipates to enter into a construction contract to build the new runway in September this year. The runway project is expected to be completed by December 2020.A transition steering committee comprising representatives from both Palisade and council will be established to oversee the operation of the Sunshine Coast Airport transition from council to Palisade.

A total of four elderly persons and a 20-month-old baby have died from the flu for which 39 people were hospitalised in the past three months, according to Head of the Infectious Disease Surveillance Unit of the health ministry Maria Koliou.She said all of them had type A influenza.Most people who were hospitalised in public hospitals and private clinics have now recovered and have returned home.“Of the 39 cases, only three were children under 15. The others were adults and elderly people. The average age was 59 years. Of these, five died.”Asked how the situation is evolving, she said there are signs it was getting better.“Since it [the spread of the influenza] started early, it will finish early,” Koliou explained. “The flu peaked around Christmas instead of in the first week of January as is usual.”Koliou told the Cyprus News Agency the classic symptoms of the illness are chills, headaches, aching joints and fever but above all feeling weak and wanting to sleep. Some people may have a sore throat, a cough or in rare cases suffer from gastroenteritis.It is not a very serious illness, but is generally considered the most serious of the ones currently going around, she added.The situation is not something new, but happens every winter, and hospitals are able to cope with all cases.Based on reports by doctors, there seem to be less incidents this year, and time will show if it is possible to reduce the numbers even further.Hygiene is an important precaution, especially washing hands and using tissues but also keeping away from others while sneezing, and good ventilation.According to the health ministry, the best way of protection, especially for vulnerable groups, is the flu vaccine.Vaccination is recommended for people over 65, children over six months, and adults with chronic ailments.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
