Ranatunga said that while he does not intend to underestimate the cricketers, there was no skillful administration to administer the cricket team. “There is no possibility of the Sri Lanka team coming out victorious during the upcoming India series. The ICC has mentioned in their press release that the Sri Lanka team qualified for the ICC world cup in 2019 not because of their performances, but because of luck. It’s still uncertain if Sri Lanka will be able to go to the second round,” he said. “I predict that if the current situation continues we will be ruined in the world cup in 2019. The 2019 world cup will be held in England which is not an easy place for us to play. I’m not sure whether there are skilled authorities to instruct our fast bowlers how to play in England,” he said.He also said that everyone knows Sri Lanka cricket is administered by gamblers except the Minister of Sports. “The Government and the Minister of Sports are silent about this chaos. I regret of being unable to take any decision despite being in the Government. Even though I have informed this to the President, The Prime Minister and Minister of Sports, they have not provided a well-chosen solution yet. This Government is the only Government who are waiting till cricket is destroyed in the country. Cricket is like a religion in Sri Lanka. People will point their finger at me, because I am in this Government,” Minister Arjuna Ranatunga said. (Colombo Gazette) Former Test Cricket Captain Arjuna Ranatunga today questioned the Government silence on the state of cricket in the country.He stressed that the continuation of the current disaster prevailing in Sri Lanka Cricket will result in Sri Lanka losing the ICC cricket World cup in 2019.
“On September 11th, grief enveloped the globe – not only out of solidarity with the people of the United States, but out of shared loss,” the Secretary-General said, noting that more than 90 nations lost citizens a year ago. “Today, we come together as a world community because we were attacked as a world community.”He stressed that everything that the UN worked for – peace development, health, freedom – was damaged by the horror of the attacks. “Everything that we believe in – respect for human rights, justice, pluralism and democracy – is threatened by” terrorism, Mr. Annan said. “It must be defeated – by the world acting as one.”He also underscored the UN’s strong ties to New York City, despite an erroneous perception of the world body as somewhat of an enclave, isolated from its neighbours. “We at the United Nations are, in the deepest sense of the word, a part of this community,” he said. “We are neighbours to all New Yorkers, both as individuals and as an institution.”For his part, the President of the UN General Assembly, Jan Kavan of the Czech Republic, said that the gathering served to celebrate the courage and selflessness with which the American people responded to the tragedy. The invincible spirit and extraordinary heroism of the people of New York have been an inspiration to all, he noted, paying tribute “to this magnificent city and the immense determination with which it embarked on the way to recovery and the difficult process of healing.”In his remarks, Ambassador John Negroponte of the United States thanked those who expressed their personal solidarity “as friends of New York and America,” recalling that the UN understood the 11 September attacks to be attacks on civilization everywhere. “The General Assembly gave swift voice to its outrage, the Secretary-General spoke out forcefully and the Security Council condemned acts of international terrorism as threats to international peace and security,” he noted. “The United States is grateful for this solidarity.”Rosemarie Waters, President of the UN Staff Union, noted that the Organization’s personnel worked to give hope to the hopeless, to secure human dignity for all, and to bring the message of peace to even the most remote and troubled areas of the world. “The loss of life on September 11th has made us saddened, but spirited to continue our mission to strengthen the capacity of the international community to prevent such attacks,” she said.

Commercial longliners in Alaska can go fishing on March 11 after all. The National Marine Fisheries Service announced Friday (March 3) that March 11th will be the start date for halibut and black cod fishing.Listen nowMarch 11th is the halibut fishing start date approved by the International Pacific Halibut Commission back in January. The National Marine Fisheries Service typically opens long-line fishing for black cod on the same day.President Trump issued an executive order in January requiring that for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination. The start dates, catch share plan and other changes are all regulations that need to be published in the federal register. As of late last month, the National Marine Fisheries Service was still unsure of the impact of the presidential order on the fisheries. Fishermen in Alaska were questioning whether they’d be able to start fishing on that date.However, the federal agency confirmed Friday that the season would be starting on the 11th for both halibut and black cod.“The executive order really in the end didn’t end up delaying the opening of the season dates this year,” Rachel Baker said. She’s a fishery management specialist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries’ Alaska Region. “We had to work a little more extensively with folks back in NMFS headquarters and up the chain in NOAA and the Department of Commerce just to really stress the importance of getting the halibut management measures through the regulatory process to allow the season to open on time.”March 11th is a little earlier start date than other years. The season runs through November 7th.Baker said the actual regulations for commercial and charter fishing for halibut will be published in the Federal Register on Monday.For the first year, longline pot gear is allowed for commercial black cod in the Gulf of Alaska this year. Crews fishing for black cod with Individual Fishing Quota for halibut are required to keep those fish as well.
Valentine Shipley, who was recently in the national Capital performing at Harley Rock Riders, has worked with the likes of Louis Banks and Astaad Deboo and with Grammy Award winner Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and also played with India’s leading bands – Parikrama and Silk Route. He is also the founding member of the famous “Friends of Music”, the only music club of its kind in this country to provide a platform to young artists for the promotion of original music and bringing together performers from various genres of music on a common platform. Excerpts from an interview: Also Read – Add new books to your shelfWhen did you first start singing?I started singing at the age of 4, as music, as I call is our family disease, was all around my home. Music comes as a legacy from both my dad and mom. My ma was a trained classical singer, dad was a musician and a priest. So there were lots of musical instruments in the house and records as we called them LP’s, spool tape recorder, church choir, school choir, then bands even before passing out of school. My first performance on stage was in Lucknow when I was five in front of 10,000 people at a big Christian conference. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveWho are your musical inspirations?My music inspirations have been Elvis Presley, Pat Boone, Abba, Beatles, Jim Reeves, RD Burman, Kishore Kumar, Begum Akhtar, Mozart, Beethoven later Eric Clapton, Santana, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Simon and Garfunkel, Boney M, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Lionel Ritchie, Led Zeppelin, George Benson, Jagjit Singh. The list is infinite. You were part of a ‘Glee club’ in school. Tell us more about it.It was a music club in my school, St Xavier’s, Delhi founded by my music guru and a prodigy of a composer, piano player and conductor of music ParamVir. We were meeting three times a week after school for vocal exercise, going through scores of great musicals like Jesus Chris Superstar, Joseph and his amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita etc. All by the legendary Andrew LLoyd Webber. Our school St Xavier’s also produced these awesome productions. It was a pioneering effort in this country. What are the five things you can’t live without?My Guitar, my family and especially daughter Princess as I call her Diva Faith Shipley, my iPod, my Bible-which I consider to be a Handbook Manual for Life, and Love.How do you feel about the way people interpret your songs?It’s a great honour and a very humbling experience to hear interpretations and different renditions of my songs by a cross generation of folks.What job do you think you would be doing now if you didn’t have your music career?None, never thought except music which is my passion and I believe I get to live a very blessed and charmed life to have my passion as my profession. It’s a very select percentage of folks to have this gift.Which has been your favorite place to tour?Every place has an energy and vibe of its own and each is special. But I love touring in India as it’s so vast and infinitely incredible and huge…and one lifetime is not enough to discover more and more music, cultures, stories and awesome people. Europe and Australia are also pretty awesome. Now I consider myself a “musicianary” a term I coined meaning a missionary and a musician combined and a storyteller. With the recent opportunity that Harley-Davidson has given me, I can travel across cities in India and meet different people to celebrate music. This is something that I thoroughly enjoy and Harley Rock Riders is a brilliant initiative to bring together various people to enjoy a common passion.What are your favorite songs?This is a tough call. It changes with my state of mind. But if I had to list top 5 they would be – ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters’- Simon and Garfunkel, ‘My Way’-Frank Sinatra, ‘Sultans of Swing’- Dire Straits, ‘Amazing Grace’-Traditional Gospel, ‘Wonderful Tonight’-Eric Clapton and ‘Black Magic Woman’ by Santana.

VeraCrypt encryption software review by Martin Brinkmann on September 14, 2018 in Security – Last Update: March 04, 2019 – 19 commentsVeraCrypt is an encryption software that is a fork of the discontinued TrueCrypt encryption software. It can best be described as a continuation of TrueCrypt that supports all features that TrueCrypt supported plus a set of improved or new features.Since it is based on the popular application it supports options to create encrypted containers, encrypt entire hard drives and to encrypt the system partition of the computer system. The popular option to create hidden encrypted volumes is supported as well.VeraCrypt is an open source program that is available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and FreeBSD; developers and researchers can download the source code from the project website as well.Note: The current version of VeraCrypt is 1.23. This review is based on VeraCrypt 1.23 for Windows but most of it applies to VeraCrypt for Linux and Mac Os X as well.VeraCrypt installationVeraCrypt is offered as a portable version and installer. You can download and extract the portable VeraCrypt archive and run it right away. The installer provides a few extra options such as adding an icon to the desktop or Start Menu, or associating the file extensions .hc with VeraCrypt.The program creates a System Restore Point during installation and will install its drivers on the system. Note that it requires elevation because of that.Using VeraCryptVeraCrypt’s main interface looks almost like a copy of the classic TrueCrypt interface. The program lists available drive letters and mounted volumes at the top, and options to create, mount and dismount volumes in the lower half.The menu bar links to additional tools, options and settings that new users may want to explore prior to creating a new container or encrypting a hard drive partition.Interface optionsCreate Volume — starts a wizard to create a new container or encrypt a partition.Select — The select options let you select an encrypted file (container) or hard drive partition for mounting.Mount options — Select to mount the file or partition, dismount all, or configure auto-mount.VeraCrypt PreparationsThe very first thing you may want to do is go through all settings and some other steps to make sure everything is set up correctly.PreferencesSelect Settings > Preferences to open the general preferences. The developers squeezed a lot of settings on that single page and there is even a “more settings” button at the bottom that links to other Settings windows.Default mount options — select to mount volumes as read-only or removable media. Read only prohibits writes to the drive and removable media defines certain parameters for the drive.Background Task and Startup — VeraCrypt is loaded automatically on Windows start and a background task is up and running when users sign into the operating system. You can disable that here, configure VeraCrypt to exit when there are no mounted volumes or force the software to mount all device hosted VeraCrypt volumes automatically.Auto-Dismount — Configure scenarios that dismount all mounted volumes automatically. VeraCrypt does so when users log off by default but you can enable the dismounting on lock, screen saver, power saving mode, or when no data is read or written for a set period.Windows-specific — Gives you options to open Explorer automatically on mount, to use Secure Desktop for password entries for improved security, and to disable the wait message dialog during operations.Password Cache — Define the use of the password cache and related options. Options include forcing VeraCrypt to wipe the cached password on exit (VeraCrypt does to automatically on dismount), or cache passwords in the driver’s memory.Here is a quick overview of other settings pages in VeraCrypt:Settings > Language — change the interface language.Settings > Hot Keys — configure system-wide hot keys to run certain operations such as dismounting all or wiping the cache.Settings > System Encryption — Options that apply when you encrypt the system drive e.g. to skip the pre-boot authentication prompt by pressing the Esc-key.Settings > System Favorite Volumes — Add volumes to the favorites.Settings > Performance and Driver Options — Find out if AES hardware acceleration is supported, allow certain performance or driver related tasks such as TRIM or Defrag.Settings > Default keyfiles — If you use keyfiles to authenticate (more about that later), you may add keyfiles to the list of default files.BenchmarkVeraCrypt includes a tool to benchmark all supported encryption algorithms. That’s useful as it highlights which algorithms offer the best performance.While you may select any supported encryption algorithm when you create new containers or encrypt volumes on the system, it is often best when you select a fast algorithm as it will speed up operations significantly.Note: It is recommended that you create a backup of important data on the device before you use VeraCrypt to encrypt it.Using VeraCryptVeraCrypt can be used to create encrypted containers — single files that are stored on a drive that does not need to be encrypted — or to encrypt an entire volume.Volumes are divided into system volumes and non-system volumes. VeraCrypt supports both and can be used to keep all files as they are on a volume when you run the encrypt command.Container — Single file that can have any size (file system limitations and volume limitations apply).System Volume — The partition the operating system is installed on.Non-System Volume — All other partitions.The encryption process begins with a click on the “create volume” button. VeraCrypt displays the three available options on the first page and it is up to you to select one of the available options.If you want to make sure that no one can access the computer or the data on it, you may want to select encrypt the system partition or entire system drive.VeraCrypt displays an authentication prompt on boot then to decrypt the drive and boot the operating system. Anyone who cannot provide the password can’t boot into the operating system.The process is nearly identical for all three options. The core difference between creating a container and encrypting a partition is that you select a file when you select the former and a partition when you select the two other options.Standard or hidden volume — You can create normal volumes or hidden volumes. Hidden volumes are created within standard volumes. If someone forces you to unlock the drive, only the standard volume is unlocked.Volume location — Select a file (it gets created) or a partition that you want to encrypt.Encryption options — Select an encryption and hash algorithm. You can run the benchmark from the page if you have not done so already.Volume Size — Only available if you select the container option.Volume Password — The master password that is used to encrypt the drive. You can use keyfiles and PIM as well. Keyfiles are files that need to be present to decrypt the drive and PIM. PIM stands for Personal Iterations Multiplier, it is a number that you need to supply when mounting volumes when you set it during setup.Volume Format — Select the file system and cluster size. You are asked to move the mouse to create a random pool. Only available for some decryption operations.There are two things that you may want to do after creating a new encrypted volume:Select Tools > Backup Volume Header to back up the volume header; useful if the volume gets corrupted.System > Create Rescue Disk to burn it to DVD or to a USB Flash Drive. Again, useful only if the system won’t boot anymore or if the VeraCrypt boot manager has been overwritten or is corrupt.You can mount containers or volumes at any time. Just use “select file” or “select” device” in the main interface, pick the desired target, and fill out the password (and other required things) to mount it as a new volume on the computer system.ResourcesOfficial VeraCrypt Download RepositoryVeraCrypt homepageVeraCrypt release notesVeraCrypt FAQWhy was TrueCrypt development abandoned?The (anonymous) developers of TrueCrypt never revealed why they abandoned the program. They did claim that the software was not safe to use, however.Is VeraCrypt safe to use then?TrueCrypt’s code was audited and VeraCrypt fixed the security issues found by researchers during the audit. The developers of VeraCrypt implemented additional safeguards and improvements in the program, for instance by increasing the number of iterations significantly to make brute force attacks more difficult.What are the main differences between VeraCrypt and TrueCrypt?VeraCrypt uses its own storage format but supports the mounting and converting of TrueCrypt format volumes and containers.Other major differences are that VeraCrypt includes fixes for vulnerabilities found in the TrueCrypt audit, that VeraCrypt supports PIM functionality, that it supports encryption of GPT system partitions, and that VeraCrypt system volumes don’t need to be decrypted anymore during Windows 10 updates.Which algorithms does VeraCrypt support?VeraCrypt 1.23 supports the following algorithms:AESCamelliaKuznyechikSerpentTwofishCombinations of cascaded algorithms are available as well:AES-TwofishAES-Twofish-SerpentCamellia–KuznyechikCamellia–SerpentKuznyechik–AESKuznyechik–Serpent–CamelliaKuznyechik–TwofishSerpent–AESSerpent–Twofish–AESTwofish–SerpentSummary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 17 votes Software Name VeraCryptOperating System WindowsSoftware Category SecurityLanding Page https://www.veracrypt.fr/en/Home.html Advertisement
PUCÓN, Chile — A volcano in southern Chile erupted early Tuesday, spewing fiery plumes of lava into the night sky and forcing the evacuation of some 3,600 people from nearby towns.In its first major eruption in 15 years, the Villarrica volcano, one of Chile’s most active, began spewing lava and ash around 3:00 a.m. local time, prompting authorities to declare a red alert, the National Emergency Office said. As sirens sounded, bright yellow-orange lava spewed from the volcano about 800 kilometers south of the capital Santiago.A column of ash rose as high as three kilometers above the volcano, which is about 2,800 meters high.Authorities closed roads leading to the area as residents streamed into shelters at designated safe zones well removed from the volcano. But within about seven hours the eruption calmed, and there were no longer any visible signs of activity.“It’s an active volcano, but at this point it has calmed down,” President Michelle Bachelet said after flying into the region for an emergency meeting with local officials.Bachelet held an early-morning meeting with the country’s emergency committee in Santiago before traveling to the affected area, flying over the volcano along the way. She declared an “agricultural emergency” for part of the region, enabling local governments to access national emergency funds to deal with the effects of the eruption and a drought gripping the area.Once the eruption died down, authorities partially lifted their red alert, keeping it in place for a 10-kilometer radius around the volcano but allowing residents of the main towns in the area to return home under “yellow alert.” But schools remained closed in the towns of Villarrica, Pucón, Curarrehue and Coñaripe, which surround the volcano.Popular tourist spotThe eruption “was fairly intense but short in duration,” said Luis Lara, the head of Chile’s volcano monitoring network.“It was basically a small eruption,” he said from the National Emergency Office’s headquarters in Santiago.He downplayed the risk of widespread flooding, which sometimes occurs when lava melts the snow cover around a volcano, causing the surrounding rivers to rise. But about 45 families were stranded in one community after a swollen river washed out a bridge.Officials classified the eruption as level two on a scale that runs from zero to eight. It was less intense than the 2011 eruption of Caulle, another volcano in southern Chile that spewed ash so high that it was visible across the continent in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires.Villarrica is considered one of the most active volcanoes in South America, and draws crowds of tourists each year, with hikers climbing its slopes in the summer months to peer inside its crater.Its last major eruptions were in 1984 and 2000. It had shown signs of activity in recent weeks, registering minor explosions and emitting ash.—Can’t get enough of volcano pics?

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Since launching a presidential exploratory committee in November, Webb has said he wants to be a voice for working-class Americans who have struggled with economic hardships and been neglected in a political system dominated by money. He says foreign policy has been “adrift” since the end of the Cold War.He brings to the campaign an independent streak and an outsider’s view on the economy and criminal justice. His foreign policy views on Iraq and Libya and criticism of Wall Street excess could lead to debate-stage confrontations with Clinton, who served as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state.Webb will need to raise enough money to mount a viable campaign, something he’s acknowledged will be a challenge in the aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling that helped super PACs spend millions from corporations, unions and wealthy people.___RESUME REVIEWA Naval Academy graduate, Webb served as a company commander in the Marines during the Vietnam War and was awarded the Naval Cross, the Silver Star Medal and two Purple Hearts. After the war, he graduated from law school and published his first novel in 1978, “Fields of Fire,” about the Vietnam War. The 2000 film, “Rules of Engagement,” starring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson, was based on a story by Webb. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home The vital role family plays in society Webb became a Republican at the end of the Vietnam War based on national security issues and endorsed Allen in the 2000 Senate race. But he became disillusioned with the party during the Iraq war and decided to challenge Allen in 2006. Webb was helped when Allen’s campaign imploded after the incumbent senator called a Democratic tracker “macaca,” taken as an ethnic insult, during a campaign event.___CALLING CARD MOMENTWebb’s military service in the Vietnam War has infused every aspect of his career: his time on Capitol Hill as a counsel working on veterans’ issues, his novels and stints in journalism and his tenure in the Defense Department. As the nation’s debate over the Iraq war waged, Webb defeated Allen in one of the top Senate contests of 2006. After winning the seat, he raised his son’s military boots in the air during a Democratic rally in one of the lasting images from the campaign. His wife, Hong Le Webb, an attorney, was born in Vietnam. The former senator speaks Vietnamese.___EARLY STATE ACTIONWebb has made frequent visits to the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina but is overshadowed in the contest. He has sought to appeal to veterans and military voters in the early states and has played down the hurdles in running against Clinton, noting that he started well behind Allen about nine months before the 2006 Senate election. Sponsored Stories In the late 1970s, he served as a counsel to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs and worked as a journalist, receiving an Emmy Award for his PBS coverage of the U.S. Marines in Beirut in 1983. He later served in the Defense Department and became Navy secretary under Reagan in 1987.In 2006, Webb ran for the Senate on an anti-Iraq war message and overcame a large deficit to defeat incumbent Republican George Allen. In the Senate, Webb focused on foreign policy and veterans issues — he helped write the post 9/11 GI bill — but decided not to seek re-election in 2012.___PERSONAL STORYWebb’s father was an Air Force colonel and his family moved frequently during his childhood. He enrolled at the University of Southern California but left a year later to attend the U.S. Naval Academy.He was one of the Annapolis graduates — along with Arizona Sen. John McCain — featured in Robert Timberg’s “The Nightingale’s Song,” about those who fought in Vietnam. The book chronicles a memorable boxing match between Webb and Oliver North, a central figure in the Iran contra scandal of the 1980s.Webb, 69, has written several novels, movie scripts and articles, including one, in Washingtonian magazine, that came back to haunt him. The 1979 piece criticized the role of women in the military and was remembered for Webb’s observation that an Annapolis dormitory was a “horny woman’s dream.” He added, “I have never met a woman, including the dozens of female midshipmen I encountered during my recent semester as a professor at the Naval Academy, whom I would trust to provide those men with combat leadership.” ___READING LISTWebb is the author of military-themed books, including the novels “Fields of Fire,” ”Lost Soldiers,” ”The Emperor’s General,” ”A Sense of Honor,” ”Something to Die For,” and “A Country Such as This.” He wrote also wrote his memoirs, “I Heard My Country Calling,” and a policy book, “A Time to Fight.”___ONLINE AND SOCIAL MEDIAWebsite: http://www.webb2016.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/JimWebbUSAFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/IHeardMyCountryCallingCopyright © The Associated Press.
