  1. A man in Bengaluru is looking for his stolen 'Samsung' and if anyone helps him find it, that person will be rewarded with Rs. 1 lakh. Wait, what? Yes, you read it right. The reward is hefty because his 'Samsung' is reportedly worth Rs. 8 crore. By now I know what most of you are thinking - Which Samsung model does thing guy have? Since when did Samsung start making phones that were priced at Rs. 8 crores? But you know what I am thinking about? Who names their dog 'Samsung', seriously. Folks, the stolen Samsung in question is actually a three-year old Alaskan Malamute, which was imported from Beijing, China a couple of years ago by Sathish. Sathish, who is the owner of Cadaboms Kennels and the president of the Indian Dog Breeders' Association, told Bangalore Mirror "I imported Samsung from China for Rs. 8 crore, two years ago when she was a one-year-old pup". © Twitter Reportedly, Sathish gave Samsung to a family since they bonded with the dog so well. However, there was a condition, the family can keep the dog but when it gave birth to pups they can only keep one and give the rest of the litter to Sathish. However, when Sathish asked the family to send Samsung to him for his birthday, the family started making excuses. After some time, when he sternly asked them about Samsung, the family revealed that the dog was stolen. © wikimedia for representation According to a report, he and the family then lodged a complaint at the Hanumanthanagar police station and also circulated the dog's pictures on social media and announced a reward of Rs. 1 lakh. People say that a dog is a 'hooman's' best friend and the most loyal companion. Only dogs can love you unconditionally and not expect anything in return. They can even take a 'shot' for you, unless of course you're taking them to a vet, then it's a different story altogether. So it's only fair that we humans give them all our love and protect them with all we can. Recently, we came across a woman from San Francisco who loves her dog so much that when he got lost, stolen to be accurate, she announced a reward of $7000 i.e. close to Rs. 5 lakh to anyone who finds him.

  2. When Akshay Kumar kidnapped his boss' dog in the movie 'De Dana Dan' and demanded extortion money, every desi person had a good laugh. Most people were like, "Yeah right, you think she's going to pay crores to get her dog back?" Well, you might think it's a crazy idea, but people in real life love their pets more than they love humans, and they can go to any lengths for them. It's fine if you don't believe my words, but this dog parent from San Francisco is proof that I am right. View this post on Instagram // we caught feelings // A post shared by emilie talermo (@emilie.talermo) on Oct 14, 2019 at 10:26am PDT A few days ago, Emilie Talermo lost her 5-year-old dog Jackson after he got stolen from outside a grocery store, and since then she's been looking for him everywhere frantically. Jackson is a blue-eyed Australian Shepherd who was tied outside the grocery store and according to the store's surveillance camera footage, a man wearing a hoodie walked towards it, clicked pictures, petted it and then untied it and walked away with the dog. "He's always with me. It's a very real love. I just need help finding him," Emilie told media. © Bring Jackson Home (Dot) Com Now, Talermo has started her search mission where she has created a website to find her dog and is also offering $7000 as reward. It's close to Rs. 5 lakh by the way. In fact, she has even hired a plane to look for her lost dog. Reportedly, the plane will circle San Francisco and Oakland with a banner that will display the name of that website. The plane is apparently going to circle for 2 hours over the cities and cost $1200 which is Rs. 85,350 approx. However, due to bad weather that flight got delayed. © Bring Jackson Home (Dot) Com She's also raised more than $7000 on GoFundMe and she plans to donate the extra money to a dog rescue organization. We hope Emilie finds Jackson soon. This is true love, guys. View the full article
  3. A woman used one of iPhone's unique features to locate her stolen car and recovered the vehicle by tracking her smartphone. The “Find My iPhone” feature is now an integral part of iOS 13 and can be used to track your device in real-time. The woman named Victoria O'Connor left her keys inside the car while it was still running. When she returned her car was missing along with her iPhone and wallet. © Apple Using the “Find My iPhone” feature, local authorities were able to locate the general location of the phone and recovered the vehicle at a nearby apartment complex. However, the iPhone and wallet are still missing along with other belongings. The Police are confident that the iPhone and other belongings are within the same apartment complex. “Thieves are going to be thieves,” an officer on the case said. “So, the best thing you can do is don't leave your car running unattended and take care of the things that are valuable to you.” The new “Find My” app was released as a part of iOS 13 update and can be used to locate the iPhone and even friends and family who have given permission to be tracked. The feature can now also let users find devices even when it is offline. Users can also use the app to locate devices by playing a sound to pinpoint its location. © Apple When a lost device is offline, it can be detected by other Apple devices in the vicinity using Bluetooth signals that will eventually relay the location of the device to the person's iCloud account. The entire process is encrypted end-to-end and does not reveal any sensitive information. Source: KCCI Des Moines View the full article
  4. Known as one of the dominating figures on the modern scientific world, Albert Einstein changed the course of science with his groundbreaking work in the field. To this day, he is considered as nothing less than a genius, in every sense of the world. However, there are a few curious facts about the towering genius of 20th century that not many people know of. Find out more about Einstein's incredible life here. © Twitter 1. Einstein gave away his Nobel Prize as divorce settlement. Einstein married Mileva Maricis early 1900s. However, after their marriage hit the rocks in 1910 the couple got divorced in 1919. During this time, Einstein promised to hand over whatever money he might receive from the Nobel Prize. After he won the prize in 1922 for his work of photoelectric effect, he offered the prize money to her. © Twitter 2. A solar eclipse made Einstein famous. When Einstein published his theory of general relativity in 1915, which talked about gravitational fields causing distortions in the fabric of space and time, it became a huge controversy. Finally in 1919, a total solar eclipse provided the proper conditions to test the theory and Einstein was proved right. Einstein became an overnight celebrity. © Twitter 3. Einstein was spied upon by the FBI for years. After Einstein moved to the US from Berlin after Hitler's rise to power in 1933, he came under the FBI's radar for his support for pacifist, civil rights and left-wing causes. FBI launched a 24-hour surveillance that stretched over 22 years. The FBI wished to prove that he was a Soveit spy. By the time Einstein dies, his FBI file comprised of 1800 pages of data. © Twitter 4. Einstein's brain was stolen upon his death. After Einstein died in 1955 from an abdominal aortic aneurysm, Princeton pathologist Thomas Harvey removed his brain during regular autopsy and kept it with an aim to unlock the secrets of his genius. After getting necessary approvals, he cut Einstein's brain into pieces and sent them around the world for research. The most controversial research paper claimed that Einstein had unusual folds on his parietal lobe, a part of the brain associated with mathematical and spatial ability.

  6. You never feel your best when you are at the receiving end of a theft. Obviously. It gets especially worse when you are a student, always running low on money and even energy on most days for that matter, besides a lot of other stuff. This universal condition that is commonly shared by most students around the world, took an even uglier turn when a university student's laptop was stolen in UK. The incident was shared by the guy's flatmate on Twitter, who revealed that the stealing the laptop wasn't the last thing the thief did. In his Twitter post, Stevie Valentine shared how after his flatmate's laptop was stolen, the thief reached out to him and apologised for the theft in an earnest email, and even suggesting helping the guy out with his important university files. So my flat mates laptop got stolen today, please pree what the thief sent him ððððpic.twitter.com/pDhhpmncPz — Stevie Valentine (@StevieBlessed) November 28, 2018 The tweet has since gone viral and obviously the netizens had a field day between sympathizing with the thief and feelings sorry for the bloke. But regardless of it all, that has given us a good laugh and here's a piece of it for you too. If he's really sorry he'll write the next essay. — Theo (@Heli0s) November 28, 2018 “If there are any files such as university work, that you need let me know”.

  7. Motorola has launched a new device in China that has managed to confuse everyone. At first glance, it looks like the iPhone X, but when you look closer and see the paint job, it'll remind you of Huawei's P20 Pro. In fact, Motorola has decided to troll Huawei and has named this device the P30. While we've seen many companies take inspiration from Apple's iPhone X, including the Vivo V9, Xiaomi Mi A2 or the P20 Lite, Motorola has decided to go ahead and copy the design very precisely. The only difference is, there's a Moto logo on the back instead of an Apple. © Motorola The P30 has a ceramic back that comes in three flavours - black, white and a purple + blue gradient colour. The Moto logo on the back also houses a fingerprint sensor. If you're out there looking for a new phone that is cheaper but looks as attractive as the iPhone X, the P30 is for you. The phone has a 6.2-inch Full HD+ LCD display with a resolution of 2246 x 1080 and an aspect ratio of 19:9. This where the high-end feel ends though, the phone is powered by the budget Snapdragon 636 processor along with 6GB of RAM. Two storage variants, 64 and 128GB are available, along with an expandable microSD card slot. © Motorola On the rear, the dual camera setup consists of a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with an aperture of f/1.8 and f/2.2 respectively. It can shoot portrait photos along with videos at 1080p. On the front is a 12-megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 aperture. Thankfully the phone has a type-C connection that charges the 3000mAh battery. The phone also supports fast charging and a 3.5mm jack, for the old schools out there. © Motorola The phone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with Lenovo's ZUI 4.0 skin on the top. For now, the phone has launched in China and the 64GB variant retails for CNY 1,999 (Rs 20,500) while the 128GB one goes for CNY 2,099 (Rs 21,500). There is a possibility Motorola might launch the phone to more global markets after making an announcement at IFA Berlin.

  14. As the world comes to terms with the revelation that 50 million Facebook users' data was stolen by British data firm Cambridge Analytica and used against them in elections and referendums across the globe, one thing is clear: people are pissed. Users of the world's largest social network have begun deleting or deactivating their accounts in droves, following news that Cambridge Analytica was allowed to harvest users' personal information for use in US President Donald Trump's 2016 political campaign. Facebook suspended the accounts of Strategic Communication Laboratories and its analytics firm after the news broke and promised to investigate the 2015 breach, but many users appear to have had enough. © Reuters The hashtag #DeleteFacebook begun trending worldwide on Twitter early this morning, and was quickly populated by angry tales from former Facebook users and screenshots of expunged accounts. Facebook shares continued to slide on Tuesday, amid ongoing furore concerning the use of data collected by the social network. The firm's stock closed down 2.6%, following a steep decline a day earlier. The concerns infected fellow social media company Twitter, which was down more than 10% Finally deleted my @facebook account.

  15. Men like Suniel Shetty (who're ageing in reverse) have started a style-revolution of sorts. Even at 56, the salt-and-pepper good looker is in no way dressing like he's close to that age or at least, fast approaching it. Think of every outfit he's worn, how he's paired them and you'd think that there's something wrong with your eyes. But that's in the past. Well, for now, he's not seeming to look back at all and is struggling to escape from the 20-something dressing. If his recent appearance is any indication, the actor's in the mood for iconic pieces of menswear right now and is a league away from the ballgame of dated, cliche clothing. © Viral Bhayani Here's the thing: this is an insane outfit we're seeing here. While there's nothing extraordinary or even remotely experimental about this — it's no droop either. Minimal effort and maximal impact have always been Shetty's forte. And over time, he's only gotten better and has now, turned to iconic pieces that can summarize our teenage years. Boys and men, Suniel Shetty too, is a part of the Canvas Shoes Club! © Viral Bhayani Now, there's a chance you'd say, "Converse shoes are dated, bro". Then let's inform you, few pieces of fashion can never go out of style, including a pair of easy-to-maintain and washable canvas shoes. Come dirty sneakers or crisp white kicks, canvas shoes won't see an exit. And well, Shetty's also paired the pair quite well — with a well-fitted knit and classic jeans. Which may be a little too wide-legged for some, but are completely age-appropriate for him. Much like Saif Ali Khan, looks like, Suniel Shetty too is into his own version of dad jeans. And since Shetty's son, Ahan is all about canvas footwear too, clearly — he's going to raid his dad's closet very soon. © Viral Bhayani All in all, if you're looking at easy dressing without the fear of judgment, we suggest you turn to this outfit here.
  16. A pedestrian walks past a line of New York Police Department (NYPD) cars parked at Times Square in New York, US, October 18, 2011. REUTERS/Gary Hershorn/Files NEW YORK: Authorities seeking illegally acquired antique artworks have searched the apartment and office of a prominent New York billionaire and philanthropist, prosecutors said. As many as nine pieces were reportedly seized. The 77-year-old Michael Steinhardt ? who was the target of the inquiry ? made his fortune as a hedge-fund manager. A spokesman for Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. would neither confirm nor deny the seizures Friday but did confirm the searches. Vance has been active for years in trying to repatriate stolen artworks. Steinhardt is a well-known collector of Greek antiquities and even has a gallery named after him and wife Judy in the Metropolitan Museum, not far from their Fifth Avenue apartment. Steinhardt told The New York Times he had no comment on the matter "for now." Copies of search warrants provided to AFP, and signed by a New York judge on January 3, indicated that investigators were seeking about a dozen antiques from Greece and Italy, acquired between 1996 and 2011 for sums ranging from $25,000 to $380,000. ´Thousands´ of pieces returned The latter sum was spent in 2006 to acquire an 18-inch tall (45-centimetre) white oil vessel that depicts the figures of a woman and a young boy in a funerary scene dating from around 420 BC. A spokesman for the prosecutor´s office would not say whether Steinhardt might face any charges, but the search warrants list criminal possession of stolen property as a potential violation. In recent years, Vance´s office has made it a priority to track stolen works -- seizing some from museums, private collections or auction houses -- and return them to their rightful owners, including in Lebanon, Pakistan and Italy. So far, no charges have been brought against anyone for possessing the disputed works -- which sometimes pass through several hands before reaching owners in New York, the Times said. Thus, on December 15 three antiques were returned to Lebanon. They included a Greek bull´s head statue that had been exhibited at the "Met." Its estimated value: $1.2 million. Vance´s office said it had been stolen during Lebanon´s civil war. Vance said at the time that his office had, since 2012, tracked down several thousand antique pieces with a total value of more than $150 million.
  17. Jewels on display during a press preview of an exhibition titled ?Treasures from India, Jewels from the Al Thani Collection? at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York Oct. 27, 2014. The collection has been shown in the US, England, France, Italy and Japan. On Jan. 3, thieves stole some of the Al Thani collection jewels from an exhibition at a Venetian palace/AFP ROME: Thieves made off with several items of Indian maharajahs´ treasures owned by a member of the Qatari royal family after an audacious heist Wednesday at the Doge´s palace in Venice, police said. Italian authorities investigating the theft put at around a million euros ($1.2 million) the overall value of the collection of Treasures of the Mughals and the Maharajahs on display. Two thieves got away with earrings and a brooch on the final day of a four-month exhibition covering some 270 items showcasing five centuries of Indian craftsmanship. Investigators said the pair had managed to take the items from a reinforced display case after deactivating the alarm system before melting into the crowd and making good their escape. The alarm was raised only several hours later at the palace, known as the Palazzo Ducale in Italy, in central Venice at one end of Saint Mark´s Square. "We are clearly dealing here with two skilled professionals who managed to pull off their feat despite all the display rooms being fitted with technologically highly sophisticated (alarm) systems," chief police commissioner Vito Gagliardi said. The collection was assembled by Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani and now belongs to Qatar´s ruling family.
  18. Data included names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of Uber users around the world Uber Technologies Inc paid hackers $100,000 to keep secret a massive breach last year that exposed the data of some 57 million accounts of the ride-service provider, the company said on Tuesday. Discovery of the company?s cover-up of the incident resulted in the firing of two employees who led Uber?s response to the hack, said Dara Khosrowshahi, who was named CEO in August following the departure of founder Travis Kalanick. Khosrowshahi said he had only recently learned of the breach, which happened in October 2016. "None of this should have happened, and I will not make excuses for it," Khosrowshahi said in a blog post on the company website. The company?s admission that it failed to disclose the breach comes as Uber seeks to recover from sexual harassment allegations and multiple federal criminal probes that culminated in Kalanick?s ouster in June. The company said two hackers gained access to proprietary information used by Uber and stored on GitHub, a service that allows engineers to collaborate on software code. The two people downloaded the data, which included names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of Uber users around the world and the names and driver?s license numbers of 600,000 US drivers, Khosrowshahi said. ?While I can?t erase the past, I can commit on behalf of every Uber employee that we will learn from our mistakes,? Khosrowshahi said. ?We are changing the way we do business, putting integrity at the core of every decision we make and working hard to earn the trust of our customers.? Bloomberg News first reported the data breach on Tuesday. Khosrowshahi said Uber had begun notifying regulators. The New York attorney general has opened an investigation into the data breach, a spokeswoman said. Uber said it fired its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, and a deputy, Craig Clark, this week because of their role in the handling of the incident. Sullivan, formerly the top security official at Facebook Inc (FB.O) and a federal prosecutor, served as both security chief and deputy general counsel for Uber. Sullivan declined to comment when reached by Reuters. Clark could not immediately be reached for comment. Kalanick learned of the breach in November 2016, a month after it took place, as the company was in negotiations with the US Federal Trade Commission over the handling of consumer data. A person familiar with the breach said a board committee investigated the matter and concluded that neither Kalanick nor Salle Yoo, Uber?s general counsel at the time, were involved in the decision not to disclose the stolen data. The person did not say when the investigation took place. Kalanick, through a spokesman, declined to comment. Although payments to hackers are rarely publicly discussed, US Federal Bureau of Investigation officials and private security companies have told Reuters that an increasing number of companies are paying thieves to recover stolen data. Uber has a history of failing to protect driver and passenger data. Hackers previously stole information about Uber drivers and the company acknowledged in 2014 that its employees had used a software tool called ?God View? to track passengers. Khosrowshahi said on Tuesday that he had hired Matt Olsen, former general counsel of the US National Security Agency, to restructure the company?s security teams and processes. The company also hired Mandiant, a cybersecurity firm owned by FireEye Inc (FEYE.O), to investigate the breach. The new CEO has traveled the world since replacing Kalanick to deliver a message that the company has matured from it earlier days as a rule-flouting startup. ?The new CEO faces an unknown number of problems fostered by the culture promoted by his predecessor,? said Erik Gordon, an expert in entrepreneurship and technology at the University of Michigan?s Ross School of Business.
  19. German police presents stolen diaries and other items belonging to former Beatle John Lennon that were recovered, during a news conference in Berlin, Germany. Photo: Reuters BERLIN: German police presented on Tuesday diaries, pairs of glasses and other items belonging to late Beatle John Lennon that were stolen from his widow Yoko Ono in 2006 and eventually ended up in Berlin. Police arrested a man in Berlin on Monday suspected of receiving the 86 stolen items, which include Lennon?s last diary that ended on the day he was shot and killed in New York on December 8, 1980. ?This day contains the entry that on that morning John Lennon and Yoko Ono had an appointment with Annie Leibovitz to take a photo which I think is world famous,? Berlin prosecutor Michael von Hagen told a news conference. The Leibovitz portrait of a naked Lennon curled up around Ono on their bed ran on the January 1981 cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Hagen rejected suggestions that Ono might have lent or given away the objects: ?The diaries especially ... were also treated by Yoko Ono as something sacred. And the idea that she would have given away three original diaries, especially the one that ends on the very day Lennon died, can be completely ruled out.? Beatles for sale: German police recover John Lennon diaries The items were stolen from Lennon?s widow Yoko Ono in New York in 2006 Carsten Pfohl, head of property crime for Berlin police, said investigators had found one of the pairs of glasses and a receipt in Lennon?s name hidden in the trunk of the car of the accused on Monday. Police suspect that the items were stolen by Ono?s former driver and then taken to Turkey and were only brought to Berlin in 2013 or 2014. Another suspect lives in Turkey, they said. The Berlin police was alerted after they were found by the administrator for a bankrupt auction house, which had previously valued the objects at 3.1 million euros ($3.64 million).

  20. Uber Technologies Inc paid hackers $100,000 to keep secret a massive breach last year that exposed the data of some 57 million accounts of the ride-service provider, the company said on Tuesday. Discovery of the company?s cover-up of the incident resulted in the firing of two employees who led Uber?s response to the hack, said Dara Khosrowshahi, who was named CEO in August following the departure of founder Travis Kalanick. Khosrowshahi said he had only recently learned of the breach, which happened in October 2016. "None of this should have happened, and I will not make excuses for it," Khosrowshahi said in a blog post on the company website. The company?s admission that it failed to disclose the breach comes as Uber seeks to recover from sexual harassment allegations and multiple federal criminal probes that culminated in Kalanick?s ouster in June. The company said two hackers gained access to proprietary information used by Uber and stored on GitHub, a service that allows engineers to collaborate on software code. The two people downloaded the data, which included names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of Uber users around the world and the names and driver?s license numbers of 600,000 U.S. drivers, Khosrowshahi said. ?While I can?t erase the past, I can commit on behalf of every Uber employee that we will learn from our mistakes,? Khosrowshahi said. ?We are changing the way we do business, putting integrity at the core of every decision we make and working hard to earn the trust of our customers.? Bloomberg News first reported the data breach on Tuesday. Khosrowshahi said Uber had begun notifying regulators. The New York attorney general has opened an investigation into the data breach, a spokeswoman said. Uber said it fired its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, and a deputy, Craig Clark, this week because of their role in the handling of the incident. Sullivan, formerly the top security official at Facebook Inc (FB.O) and a federal prosecutor, served as both security chief and deputy general counsel for Uber. Sullivan declined to comment when reached by Reuters. Clark could not immediately be reached for comment. Kalanick learned of the breach in November 2016, a month after it took place, as the company was in negotiations with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over the handling of consumer data. A person familiar with the breach said a board committee investigated the matter and concluded that neither Kalanick nor Salle Yoo, Uber?s general counsel at the time, were involved in the decision not to disclose the stolen data. The person did not say when the investigation took place. Kalanick, through a spokesman, declined to comment. Although payments to hackers are rarely publicly discussed, U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation officials and private security companies have told Reuters that an increasing number of companies are paying thieves to recover stolen data. Uber has a history of failing to protect driver and passenger data. Hackers previously stole information about Uber drivers and the company acknowledged in 2014 that its employees had used a software tool called ?God View? to track passengers. Khosrowshahi said on Tuesday that he had hired Matt Olsen, former general counsel of the U.S. National Security Agency, to restructure the company?s security teams and processes. The company also hired Mandiant, a cybersecurity firm owned by FireEye Inc (FEYE.O), to investigate the breach. The new CEO has traveled the world since replacing Kalanick to deliver a message that the company has matured from it earlier days as a rule-flouting startup. ?The new CEO faces an unknown number of problems fostered by the culture promoted by his predecessor,? said Erik Gordon, an expert in entrepreneurship and technology at the University of Michigan?s Ross School of Business.
  21. Chevrolet has a new gift for vroom lovers. The all-new 2019 Corvette ZR1 has finally made an appearance in the City of Gold and we can't take our eyes off of it! The Dubai Auto Show was definitely the perfect to unveil the supercar, given that General Motors has put in a lot of sweat and moolah in making the next-gen Corvette a luxurious whip. Source: Chevrolet The orange bodywork of the Corvette is easy on the eyes and the very first look at the vehicle will get your pulse racing, but that's not all. The makers wanted a refreshing piece and what's more refreshing than tangerine brake calipers, rocker and splitter accent stripes, seat belts, interior stitching and a unique bronze aluminum interior trim? They are calling it the Sebring Orange Design Package, and we think it's so revitalising it's almost edible! Source: Chevrolet General Motors have paid attention to the tiniest of details for the ZR1 to be a razor smooth fast drive. They have improved the cooling of the car by giving it a "special carbon-fiber “halo” hood" that has an opening in the middle, and they have even reworked the wings of the supercar to maximise downforce and reduce drag. Source: Chevrolet The word you're hunting for is "steamy", and the ZR1 is not just steamy because of how it looks but also because it's deadlier than a stallion on heat. Chevrolet worked in a LT5 6.2L V-8 supercharged engine that is capable of pumping out 755hp that can make it reach a top speed of nearly 338kmph. This makes the ZR1 the most powerful Corvette yet. The driver can control this baby with a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission in order to put the metal to the test. Source: Chevrolet Oh, and oh! What's a quick lap without some nice music blaring in the background (or some soothing Beethoven to keep you from going overboard with excitement, if that's your kind of thing), which is why Chevrolet packed in a Bose sound system. International roads will be graced with its presence early next year and it appears that Chevrolet will be manufacturing 3000 units annually. There is no intelligence on its price tag, but General Motor's newest offering won't be easy on the pocket. From where we see it, the new Corvette is nothing short of perfect, and will be worth every penny spent!
  22. Yet another statement that has surfaced on the row over Taj Mahal suggests the mausoleum was built on stolen property, according to International Business Times. While speaking in the Rajya Sabha (Indian parliament upper house) recently, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy said he had access to the documents that state the white marble monument was built on stolen property. Swamy?s comments have come a day after a BJP parliamentarian, Vinay Katiyar, said Taj Mahal was originally a Hindu temple hence should be renamed Tejo Mahal, reported NDTV. Katiyar, who is active in the campaign for Ram temple at the Babri mosque site in Ayodhya, said Taj Mahal was constructed on the ruins of a Shive temple. Taj Mahal built by traitors, is blot on Indian culture: BJP lawmaker Mausoleum was removed from Uttar Pradesh?s booklet of tourism earlier in October However, Swamy said, there is evidence on record that Shah Jahan forced the Raja-Maharajas of Jaipur to sell the land on which Taj Mahal is standing and in return gave them 40 villages, which ?is nothing compared to the property?s value?. Swamy said the documents would soon be made public. But, he added, the BJP had no intention of demolishing the Taj. They wanted only three temples out of the thousands demolished under the Muslim rule to be restored, he said. ?These three, once they are restored, we won?t be concerned about the remaining 40,000.?
  23. Arvind Kejriwal, the man that everybody loves to troll, is the laughing stock of Twitter yet again for a reason that is sad and funny (sorry, not, sorry), all at the same time. His iconic Maruti Suzuki WagonR, you know the one he loves to talk about, has been stolen in the national capital. The car was stolen right outside the Delhi Secretariat on Thursday and guys; it has now become a matter of national concern. The car was lovingly dubbed the 'AAP Mobile' and the political leader used it to camp and sleep in during a protest against the Delhi Police at the Rail Bhawan in 2014. He also drove around in it for his campaigns and it's safe to say that the car was well-loved. © Twitter However, of late, the car was not being used by him. In fact, it was being used by Vandana Singh, the Aam Aadmi Party's in-charge of the youth wing and the party's media coordinator, and was often seen parked at the party office at central Delhi's Deen Dayal Upadhya Marg. Kejriwal of course is heartbroken and so are the rest of his party. “I want this car back. There are a lot of emotions, memories attached to it. Whoever returns the car, I will give him a suitable reward, which will be much more than what he will get from selling the car,” announced AAP's Naveen Jaihind, a senior leader from Haryana. AAP's emotional attachment is understandable. But as we all know, folks on Twitter are ruthless when it comes to trolling. For the common man, hearing the news of a car being stolen is an everyday thing but when it's the CM of Delhi suffering from the unfortunate incident, people lose it and Twitter was right there to console them! From his obsession with PM Modi to his mufflers, nothing was spared. Here are some of the most ruthless and hilarious tweets: V Sad to know Kejriwal's Blue wagonR car was stolen, but saddest part is he wasn't inside when it was stolen ðð#bluewagonR — Niranjan Appaji (@AppajiNiranjan) October 13, 2017 Kejriwal's iconic WagonR stolen..

  24. Walt Disney Co Chief Executive Bob Iger has revealed that hackers claimed to have access to an unnamed upcoming movie and have demanded a ransom, the Hollywood Reporter said on Monday. Iger made the comments during a town hall meeting with ABC employees in New York City, the Hollywood Reporter said, citing multiple sources. The hackers have demanded that a huge sum be paid on Bitcoin, but Disney has refused to pay, the publication said. Disney was not immediately available for comment.
  25. A global cyber attack leveraging hacking tools widely believed by researchers to have been developed by the U.S. National Security Agency hit international shipper FedEx, disrupted Britain's health system and infected computers in nearly 100 countries on Friday. Cyber extortionists tricked victims into opening malicious malware attachments to spam emails that appeared to contain invoices, job offers, security warnings and other legitimate files. The ransomware encrypted data on the computers, demanding payments of $300 to $600 to restore access. Security researchers said they observed some victims paying via the digital currency bitcoin, though they did not know what percent had given in to the extortionists. Researchers with security software maker Avast said they had observed 57,000 infections in 99 countries with Russia, Ukraine, and Taiwan the top targets. The most disruptive attacks were reported in Britain, where hospitals and clinics were forced to turn away patients after losing access to computers. International shipper FedEx Corp said some of its Windows computers were also infected. "We are implementing remediation steps as quickly as possible," it said in a statement. Still, only a small number of U.S.-headquartered organizations were hit because the hackers appear to have begun the campaign by targeting organizations in Europe, said Vikram Thakur, research manager with security software maker Symantec. By the time they turned their attention to the United States, spam filters had identified the new threat and flagged the ransomware-laden emails as malicious, Thakur said. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said late on Friday that it was aware of reports of the ransomware, was sharing information with domestic and foreign partners and was ready to lend technical support. Telecommunications company Telefonica was among many targets in Spain, though it said the attack was limited to some computers on an internal network and had not affected clients or services. Portugal Telecom and Telefonica Argentina both said they were also targeted. Private security firms identified the ransomware as a new variant of "WannaCry" that had the ability to automatically spread across large networks by exploiting a known bug in Microsoft's Windows operating system. "Once it gets in and starts moving across the infrastructure, there is no way to stop it," said Adam Meyers, a researcher with cyber security firm CrowdStrike. The hackers, who have not come forward to claim responsibility or otherwise been identified, likely made it a "worm," or self-spreading malware, by exploiting a piece of NSA code known as "Eternal Blue" that was released last month by a group known as the Shadow Brokers, researchers with several private cybersecurity firms said. "This is one of the largest global ransomware attacks the cyber community has ever seen," said Rich Barger, director of threat research with Splunk, one of the firms that linked WannaCry to the NSA. The Shadow Brokers released Eternal Blue as part of a trove of hacking tools that they said belonged to the U.S. spy agency. Microsoft on Friday said it was pushing out automatic Windows updates to defend clients from WannaCry. It issued a patch on March 14 to protect them from Eternal Blue. "Today our engineers added detection and protection against new malicious software known as Ransom: Win32.WannaCrypt," Microsoft said in a statement. It said the company was working with its customers to provide additional assistance. The spread of the ransomware capped a week of cyber turmoil in Europe that kicked off a week earlier when hackers posted a huge trove of campaign documents tied to French candidate Emmanuel Macron just 1-1/2 days before a run-off vote in which he was elected as the new president of France. On Wednesday, hackers disputed the websites of several French media companies and aerospace giant Airbus.Also, the hack happened four weeks before a British parliamentary election in which national security and the management of the state-run National Health Service (NHS) are important campaign themes. Authorities in Britain have been braced for possible cyberattacks in the run-up to the vote, as happened during last year's U.S. election and on the eve of this month's presidential vote in France. But those attacks - blamed on Russia, which has repeatedly denied them - followed an entirely different modus operandi involving penetrating the accounts of individuals and political organizations and then releasing hacked material online. On Friday, Russia's interior and emergencies ministries, as well as the country's biggest bank, Sberbank, said they were targeted. The interior ministry said on its website that around 1,000 computers had been infected but it had localized the virus. The emergencies ministry told Russian news agencies it had repelled the cyber attacks while Sberbank said its cyber security systems had prevented viruses from entering its systems. Although cyber extortion cases have been rising for several years, they have to date affected small-to-mid-sized organizations, disrupting services provided by hospitals, police departments, public transportation systems and utilities in the United States and Europe. "Seeing a large telco like Telefonica get hit is going to get everybody worried. Now ransomware is affecting larger companies with more sophisticated security operations," Chris Wysopal, chief technology officer with cyber security firm Veracode, said. The news is also likely to embolden cyber extortionists when selecting targets, Chris Camacho, chief strategy officer with cyber intelligence firm Flashpoint, said. "Now that the cyber criminals know they can hit the big guys, they will start to target big corporations. And some of them may not be well prepared for such attacks," Camacho said. In Spain, some big firms took pre-emptive steps to thwart ransomware attacks following a warning from Spain's National Cryptology Centre of "a massive ransomware attack." Iberdrola and Gas Natural, along with Vodafone's unit in Spain, asked staff to turn off computers or cut off internet access in case they had been compromised, representatives from the firms said. In Spain, the attacks did not disrupt the provision of services or networks operations of the victims, the government said in a statement.
