ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogWASHINGTON: An emergency alert sent on Saturday to Hawaii?s residents warning of an imminent ballistic missile attack was transmitted mistakenly by state authorities due to human error, Hawaii?s governor and emergency management chief said. State officials and the US military?s Pacific Command confirmed that there was no actual threat to the state. Governor David Ige, a Democrat, said in comments aired on CNN, ?I was awakened by the alert like everyone else here in the state of Hawaii. It was unfortunate and regrettable. We will be looking at how we can improve the procedures so it doesn?t happen again.? The alert, sent to mobile phones and aired on television and radio, was issued amid high international tensions over North Korea?s development of ballistic nuclear weapons. Ige, who apologized for the incident, said the alert was sent out by mistake during a shift change at the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. He said such shift changes occur three times a day every day of the year. Vern Miyagi, the agency?s administrator, said in comments also aired on CNN, ?It was an inadvertent mistake. The change of shift is about three people. That should have been caught. ... It should not have happened.? The U.S. Federal Communications Commission announced it was initiating a full investigation. The FCC has jurisdiction over the emergency alert system. Earlier this week, FCC chairman Ajit Pai said the agency would vote at its January meeting to enhance the effectiveness of wireless emergency alerts, which have been in place since 2012. CHECK LIST Miyagi said there was a ?check list? that should have been followed. He said, ?I think we have the process in place. It?s an matter of executing the process. I think it?s human error.? ?This will not happen again,? he added. Media reports said it took 38 minutes for the initial alert to be corrected. After the alert was sent, the Emergency Management Agency later said on Twitter: ?NO missile threat to Hawaii.? A spokeswoman for US Representative Tulsi Gabbard said the congresswoman checked with the state agency that issued the alert and was told it was sent in error. Gabbard then tweeted, ?HAWAII - THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.? Gabbard also tweeted the mistaken alert, which stated: ?EMERGENCY ALERT BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.? North Korean President Kim Jong-un has threatened to unleash his country?s growing missile weapon capability against the U.S. territory of Guam or U.S. states, prompting President Donald Trump to threaten tough actions against Pyongyang, including ?fire and fury.? Trump was wrapping up a round of golf at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida when the incident was unfolding. White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said Trump was briefed and that it ?was purely a state exercise.? Hawaii State Representative Matt LoPresti, described his family?s reaction upon receiving the alert, adding that ?someone should lose their job if this was an error.? ?We took shelter immediately ... in the bathtub with my children, saying our prayers,? LoPresti told CNN. ?I was wondering why we couldn?t hear the emergency sirens. I didn?t understand that. And that was my first clue that maybe something was wrong, whether a hack or an error. But we took it as seriously as a heart attack,? LoPresti added. Hawaii, a chain of islands in the Pacific Ocean, has a population of about 1.4 million people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and is home to Pacific Command, the Navy?s Pacific Fleet and other elements of the American military. In November, Hawaii said it would resume monthly statewide testing of Cold War-era nuclear attack warning sirens for the first time in at least a quarter of a century, in preparation for a possible missile strike from North Korea, state officials said at the time. US Senator Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, said on Twitter, ?At a time of heightened tensions, we need to make sure all information released to the community is accurate. We need to get to the bottom of what happened and make sure it never happens again.? The US Navy base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, was the target of the surprise attack by Japan on Dec. 7, 1941, that drew the United States into World War Two.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogThe Soyuz-2 spacecraft ? with Meteor-M satellite and 18 additional small satellites ? launches from Russia's new Vostochny cosmodrome, near the town of Tsiolkovsky in Amur region, Russia, November 28, 2017. REUTERS/Stringer/Files MOSCOW: Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Wednesday the failed launch of a 2.6 billion-rouble ($44.95 million) satellite last month was due to an embarrassing programming error. Russian space agency Roscosmos said last month it had lost contact with the newly-launched weather satellite - the Meteor-M - after it blasted off from Russia?s new Vostochny cosmodrome in the Far East. Eighteen smaller satellites belonging to scientific, research and commercial companies from Russia, Norway, Sweden, the United States, Japan, Canada and Germany, were on board the same rocket. Speaking to Rossiya 24 state TV channel, Rogozin said the failure had been caused by human error. The rocket carrying the satellites had been programmed with the wrong coordinates, he said, saying it had been given bearings for take-off from a different cosmodrome - Baikonur - which Moscow leases from Kazakhstan. ?The rocket was really programmed as if it was taking off from Baikonur,? said Rogozin. ?They didn?t get the coordinates right.? The Vostochny spaceport, laid out in the thick taiga forest of the Amur Region, is the first civilian rocket launch site in Russia. In April last year, after delays and massive costs overruns, Russia launched its first rocket from Vostochny, a day after a technical glitch forced an embarrassing postponement of the event in the presence of President Vladimir Putin.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogCrosses are placed near a vigil in the memory of those killed in the shooting at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland, Texas, US, November 6, 2017. REUTERS/Rick Wilking SUTHERLAND SPRINGS: The gunman who shot 26 worshipers to death and wounded 20 others at a Texas church was embroiled in a domestic dispute with his in-laws and had been sending threatening messages to his wife?s mother before the massacre, officials said Monday. The killer, Devin Kelley, 26, was previously convicted by court-martial of assaulting his first wife and step-son while serving in the US Air Force and spent a year in detention before his bad-conduct discharge in 2014, according to the Pentagon. The Air Force acknowledged on Monday that it failed to enter Kelley?s 2012 domestic violence offence into a US government database used by licensed gun dealers for conducting background checks on firearms purchasers. A sporting goods retail chain has said Kelley passed background checks when he bought a gun in 2016 and a second firearm the following year. Details about Kelley?s background of violent, disturbing behaviour emerged a day after Sunday?s rampage in southeastern Texas, which ranks as the deadliest mass shooting by a lone gunman in the state and one of the five most lethal in modern US history. Kelley was found dead, apparently of gunshot wounds, after a failed attempt to make his getaway from the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, authorities said. Stepping out of the church, Kelley was confronted and shot three times by an armed area resident. Kelley then fled in a sports utility vehicle (SUV) as the resident waved down a passing motorist. The two good Samaritans then chased after the suspect at high speeds, authorities said. Freeman Martin ? a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety ? credited the man who shot Kelley as ?our Texas hero?. Kelley called his father during the pursuit to say he had been shot and might not survive, officials said. He later crashed his vehicle, shot himself and died, they added. It was not clear if he died of the self-inflicted wound or those sustained in the gunfight, officials said. It appeared that family problems may have been a factor in Sunday?s carnage. Kelley was involved in a domestic dispute with the family of Danielle Shields, a woman he married in 2014, and the situation had flared up, according to officials and public records. ?There was a domestic situation going on within the family and the in-laws,? Martin told reporters outside the church on Monday. ?The mother-in-law attended the church? she had received threatening text messages from him.? Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tacit said the family members were not in the church during Kelley?s attack. Kelley himself had attended services at the church at times, US Senator Ted Cruz of Texas told reporters at the scene. ?My understanding is that this depraved madman had worshipped at this church before,? Cruz said. The attack came about a month after a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas in the deadliest shooting by a lone assailant in modern US history. The dead in Sunday?s bloodshed ranged in age from 18 months to 77 years. Ten of the wounded in Texas remained in critical condition on Monday morning, officials said. 'Peaceful and quiet place' Vice President Mike Pence said on Twitter that he will travel to Sutherland Springs on Wednesday to meet with victims? families and law enforcement. The attack stunned Sutherland Springs, a community of about 400 people with just one blinking yellow traffic light. One family, the Holcombe, lost eight people from three generations in the attack, including Bryan Holcombe, an assistant pastor who was leading the service, a relative said. John Stiles, a 76-year-old retired US Navy veteran, said he heard the shots from his home about 150 yards (137 miles) away, ?My wife and I were looking for a peaceful and quiet place when we moved here but now that hasn?t worked out.?
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogAmazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) told some shoppers on Wednesday that there was a problem when they were trying to view product listings. "Sorry something went wrong on our end," Amazon said on a page some shoppers were sent to after clicking on items from its US home page. A different image of a dog greeted users each time. Many shoppers took to twitter to report the error message, which Reuters witnesses separately viewed. The incident appeared to start in the early afternoon Pacific Time and subside after 2 PM (2100 GMT). The cause was not clear, and company representatives did not respond to requests for comment. Outages are rare for Seattle-based Amazon, which prides itself on being a technology company, not simply a retailer. In February, its cloud storage and computing business, Amazon Web Services, suffered a technical disruption. The widely felt outage underscored how enterprises from news sites to even Apple Inc (AAPL.O) rely on Amazon's cloud for some of their day-to-day operations. Wednesday's glitch was unlikely to slow Amazon's growing control over consumers' wallets, however. "A one-off outage for a couple hours in the middle of the day is not going to have a major impact," said analyst Jan Dawson of Jackdaw Research. Though "it's never good," he added. The world's largest online retailer averaged more than $151,000 in sales per minute in North America last year, reflecting lost opportunity from even short-lived disruptions. Amazon's share price was largely unchanged in after-hours trading.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogPhoto: Reuters LONDON: New Zealand cricket captain Kane Williamson said the squad he will lead into June´s Champions Trophy should be in good form given plenty of recent preparations but admits that is no guarantee for success when it comes to one-off clashes. Williamson, who is set to lead New Zealand into his first major 50-over tournament as captain, said a lot of the team´s members have been heavily involved in the Indian Premier League while others were in Ireland for the Tri-Series last week. "It counts for something but not for everything because we still come back to one-off clashes with opponents and if you win then you can go a long way in the competition," said Williamson, who took over as captain from Brendon McCullum in 2016. "But there is not much time for slip-ups or conservative cricket." New Zealand are in Group A of the Champions Trophy, to be held in England from June 1-18, with Australia, England and Bangladesh the other teams in their group. Williamson is familiar with being a part of thrilling one-day series in England but hopes his team will fare better this year after squandering a 2-1 lead over England in a best-of-five one-day series in 2015. "Any time you have those experiences against opponents you are coming up against in similar conditions, it is the same side too, it is only a good thing," said Williamson. "But you don´t tend to look too much into it in tournaments like this ? it is a one-off game and both teams will be playing with freedom and hope it comes off.?
