World News / Nude picture as 'cover girl' - wrong or right?
« on: July 10, 2008, 02:47:02 PM »
An 11 year old girl in Australia thinks she knows better than the Prime Minister and 20 million other Australians, despite that she has only stopped sucking at her mothers breasts a few years ago, press reports indicate.

Olympia Nelson was aged 6 when her mother Polixeni Papapetrou took photographs of her nude which have now been published by Art Monthly Australia magazine, which is angered by resistance to suggestive sexual poses of minors appearing in Australian publications.

Her father Robert Nelson, an arts critic at The Age newspaper and a professor at Monash University, has allowed his daughter now aged 11 to "give 2 fingers" (saying f... off) to Australia, the opposition leader Brendan Nelson (no relation) has pointed out.

The girls parents have allowed her to make statements to the media regarding matters which she is totally unqualified to make concerning art, abuse and the perception of nudity.

Police seized a number of photographs taken by Bill Henson featuring near-naked or naked children including one 13-year old in May. Henson, who has been keeping a low profile since, believes the use of the photo as a protest is misguided, a source close to him said.

The source quoted by the Sydney Morning Herald said Henson regarded Art Monthly Australia's publication of the photo as "a lack of judgment only serving to drive deeper divisions in the community".

Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson said he would ask police to investigate whether Art Monthly Magazine had broken any laws by publishing the image.

"The use and sexualisation of children in this way is indefensible, whether in the name of art, parental consent or political protest," he told reporters.

"It is absolutely essential that we stand up to this. What these people have done in this publication and using the photographs of this child in this way is send a two-fingered salute to the rest of society."

Australian television is also carrying advertisements by U.S. fast-food giant McDonalds which are aimed at minors, in probable violation of advertising standards regulations, including one related to sponsorship of the Olympic Games in Beijing which uses a young boy to promote McDonalds to other youngsters.

Australia has overtaken the U.S. as well as Britain in the amount of fat slobs, thanks to a high consumption of fast-foods and sweets with little or no fresh and healthy produce along with an unknown number of toxic GM-foods being stocked in supermarkets across the country without labeling.

This has given rise to calls for extra taxation of fat slobs who suffer obesity due to over eating or eating the wrong foods, with the high health cost this entails, as well as filling two seats on public transport or theaters.

Those who take care of their health and occupy only one seat are increasingly shown to question why they should foot the health bills and loss of productivity brought about by the slobs in Australia.

Music / ASA - Jailer's Video and the remix
« on: May 26, 2008, 03:22:53 PM »
Has any1 here listened to the remix of Asa's song - jailer?

I think it was unnecessary.

and the video - LOW BUDGET I THINK.


I saw this stuff on BBC and decided to post it.

The popular social networking site allows users to add a variety of applications to their profile.

But a malicious program, masquerading as a harmless application, could potentially harvest personal data.

Facebook says users should exercise caution when adding applications. Any programs which violate their terms will be removed, the network said.

Stealing details

Facebook is the darling of the moment, allowing friends to stay in touch, post photos, and share fun little games and quizzes. And it also lets you keep your details private from the rest of the world. Or at least that is the implication.

How the BBC exposed Facebook security flaw
We have discovered a way to steal the personal details of you and all your Facebook friends without you knowing.

We made up the fictitious profile of Bob Smith. He keeps most of his details on his profile private from non-friends.

While we could not get all details, what we did get, included his name, hometown, school, interests and photograph, would certainly help us to steal someone's identity.

Mining data

So how did we do it?

Click's resident coder, Pete
Thousands of applications are available to Facebook users

Using a couple of laptops and our resident coder Pete, we created a special application for Facebookers to add.

One of the reasons Facebook has become so popular so quickly is because of the wealth of applications users can add to their profile pages.

Little games, quizzes, IQ tests, there are thousands of them available. And once you have added an application, your friends are encouraged to add it too.

Anyone with a basic understanding of web programming can write an application.

Click's advice for worried Facebook users

We wrote an evil data mining application called Miner, which, if we wanted, could masquerade as a game, a test, or a joke of the day. It took us less than three hours.

But whatever it looks like, in the background, it is collecting personal details, and those of the users' friends, and e-mailing them out of Facebook, to our inbox.

When you add an application, unless you say otherwise, it is given access to most of the information in your profile. That includes information you have on your friends even if they think they have tight security settings.

Did you know that you were responsible for other people's security?


Now, many applications do need access to your details, in order to work properly.

We do not know of any specific application which abuses user information, apart from ours.

But the ease with we created our application has many people worried. If it is being used you would not even have to use the application we created to become a victim, you would just have to be a friend of someone who has.

Morally, Facebook has acted naively
Paul Docherty, Technical Director of Portcullis Security

Because these applications run on third-party servers, not run by Facebook - it is difficult for the company to check what is going on, whether anything has changed, and how long applications store data for and what they do with it.

Although Facebook's terms and conditions contain a warning that this could in theory happen, and offer the option to stop an application from accessing your details, many games and quizzes would not work if this option is engaged.

In fact, the only way we can see of completely protecting yourself from applications skimming information about you and your friends is to erase all the applications on your profile and opt to not use any applications in the future.

So has Facebook done enough to protect its users from identity theft?

Paul Docherty is the Technical Director of Portcullis Security, which advises several governments on IT security matters including British government.

He told us he believed that Facebook's terms and conditions stated on the site meant that Facebook had legally covered itself from any liability.

But he added: "Morally, Facebook has acted naively."

He said: "Facebook needs to change its default settings and tighten up security."

He also believes it would be difficult to secure the current system because so many third party applications are now in circulation.

Removal team

We put these concerns to Facebook.

It told us that it has an entire investigations team watching the site, and removing applications that violate its terms of use which would include our Miner application.

Read Facebook's full response
It also advises users to use the same precautions while downloading software from Facebook applications that they use when downloading software on their desktop.

Now, all this comes in the month that competitor MySpace opened up its application platform. However, it handles them differently - here all applications run on its own servers so it can see what they are up to.

MySpace also manually checks all submissions and rechecks them if authors wish to change the code. We were unable to create a similar threat to users' security using the MySpace system.

It certainly seems that Facebook's standard security settings are not sufficient to protect your personal information, and those of your friends.

Phones & Lines / Another name change for celtel!!!
« on: February 14, 2008, 05:42:14 PM »
Celtel Nigeria, is set to change its brand name from Celtel to Zain in June this year, in line with the desire of its parent company to operate under one global brand name.

Official confirmation for this name change was given yesterday by Celtel's Chief Operations Officer for East Africa and Middle East, Bashar Arafeh .

Arafeh said Zain has selected Nairobi, Kenya, as headquarters of its African operations, despite ongoing crisis in the area.

This puts to rest, speculations that had trailed acquisition of the Celtel brand by Zain a year ago, that Zain will ultimately change the brand name, despite denials by its top officials. Zain, at the time of acquiring Celtel, had disclosed that it will keep the Celtel name for its African operations, even though it went ahead to change the Middle Eastern operations of Celtel to Zain, a move analysts calculated, will lead to Celtel Africa being changed to Zain sooner than later.

Arafeh told the EastAfrican news service, that Zain will change the Celtel brand into a unified brand under Zain, after successfully re-branding it to Zain in the Middle East.

The rebranding in Nigeria will be the fifth time the brand's name will change.

The brand before transiting to Celtel, had changed names following board squabbles from Econet Wireless, the brand name with which it began operations in Nigeria six years ago, to Vnetworks, Vodacom, Vmobile to Celtel and now Zain.

Its change to Zain will be coming in less than a year after rebranding to Celtel, in an elaborate ceremony after Zain acquired a 65 per cent stake.

Politics / EFCC arrests Ibori!
« on: December 13, 2007, 07:14:53 AM »
YESTERDAY, the game was up.
Weeks of speculations on whether he was on the run in Florida, the United States of America, or on a throne in Aso Rock, Nigeria; whether he was an untouchable kingmaker or another public servant who must be held accountable came to an end in a house in Asokoro, Abuja, when men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrested the immediate past Governor of Delta State, James Onanefe "Odidigborigbo" Ibori.

In a short statement, the commission said Ibori would be arraigned today at a Federal High Court in Kaduna on a 103-count charge of corruption, abuse of office and money laundering.

Ibori was picked up by operatives of the commission in Abuja yesterday.

His arrest came seven months after he left office on May 29 this year.

In a statement by its head, Media and Publicity, Osita Nwajah, the EFCC explained that the former governor's arraignment would come up at 9.00 a.m. at the Federal High Court, Kaduna.

The five-paragraph statement read: "The EFCC would tomorrow 13th December, 2007, formally charge Chief James Onanefe Ibori to court.

"The arraignment would be at 9.00 a.m. at the Federal High Court, Kaduna.

"A Federal High Court Warrant of Arrest has been executed on Chief Ibori, the immediate past Governor of Delta State.

"He was arrested in the Asokoro area of Abuja, earlier today and has been co-operating with the commission.

"Chief Ibori would answer to a 103-count charge of abuse of office, corruption and money laundering, among others."

In an interview with The Guardian, the EFCC Chairman, Malam Nuhu Ribadu, said Ibori's prosecution would be jointly done by the commission and the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.

"We are going to carry out the prosecution with the AGF, we are working together; there is no problem on that," Ribadu said.

He dispelled the notion that there was a special reason for taking Ibori's case to Federal High Court in Kaduna instead of the one in Abuja, stressing that Federal High Courts are the same all over Nigeria.

According to him, the choice of Kaduna was to give a speedy trial on the matter, adding that the suspect would get expeditious and a fair trial.

His words: "Anywhere you see a Federal High Court, it is the same, it has one jurisdiction, that is the reason a couple of the cases are being tried here. So, we need to get where you can get fast and expeditious trial."

"We have to take measures to get speedy trial for the purpose of getting justice and fairness even to the person we are prosecuting," he added.

There are conflicting claims on how and where the former governor was arrested. Ribadu said Ibori was arrested at about 11.00 a.m. at the Kwara State Governor's Lodge, where he had gone to meet with Governor Bukola Saraki.

But an aide to Ibori said the former governor voluntarily submitted himself to the EFCC upon its invitation and was therefore not arrested at the Governor's Lodge.

Reacting to the incident, Special Assistant on Media to Ibori, Tony Eluemunor, said that his boss was neither arrested at home nor at the Kwara Liaison Office in Abuja.

He claimed that Ibori received a telephone call yesterday morning that his attention was needed at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.

Eluemunor continued: "He simply answered that call, as a law-abiding citizen - driving himself personally to the EFCC office. He was still in there at the time of issuing this statement. And by then, it is instructive that no charge has been preferred against him."

Contrary to these claims however, The Guardian learnt that the anti-graft operatives actually trailed him to the Kwara State Governor's Lodge in high-brow Asokoro District, but an argument ensued there on whether he could be so 'rudely' picked up in a serving Governor's Lodge.

In the heat of this argument, Ibori allegedly drove to the home of another People's Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain who was an influential member of former President Olusegun Obasanjo's kitchen cabinet. There he was picked up and taken to the EFCC office.

Interestingly, the Kwara State government also gave its account of the incident.

In a statement, the Special Assistant (Media) to Governor Saraki, Billy Adedamola, said that Ibori was picked up at Governor's Lodge in Abuja at 9.30 a.m. yesterday.

The statement read: "On Wednesday, 12th December 2007 at about 9.30 a.m., the former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori, arrived at the Kwara State Governor's Lodge in Abuja on courtesy call on the Kwara State Governor, Dr. Bukola Saraki.

"Chief Ibori arrived just as Governor Saraki was about leaving for the airport to catch a flight to Ilorin to preside over the State Executive Council meeting which was billed for 11 a.m.

"Upon his arrival at the Kwara Lodge, Ibori was accosted by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) led by one Danjuma. The EFCC officials apparently trailed Chief Ibori to the lodge.

"The leader of the EFCC team identified himself to Ibori and stated their mission. Promptly, Ibori offered to follow them to their office. There was no fuss and no gestures of resistance of arrest whatsoever from Chief Ibori. He in fact, drove in his own private car to the EFCC office.

"Given the conflicting reports trailing his arrest, we want to state categorically that Ibori never resided in Kwara State Governor's Lodge as being insinuated in some quarters."

Yesterday's arrest must have come as both a relief and a surprise to many Nigerians who had followed the Ibori saga for the past few months.

Ibori played a prominent role in the emergence of President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua and there had been insinuations, especially after conflicting signals over the freezing of his overseas' assets, that he could be a sacred cow immune to prosecution by the EFCC.
