Radio presenter held pending trial after slip of the tongue

first_img RwandaAfrica News Reports BBC Africa’s “disproportionate and dangerous” dismissal of a journalist RSF_en Receive email alerts November 27, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders deplores community radio presenter Habarugira Epaphrodite’s detention since 24 April in the main prison of Gitarama, the capital of Muhanga district, on a charge of “minimizing” the 1994 Tutsi genocide and “spreading genocide ideology.” Epaphrodite was arrested because, while reading a report about ceremonies marking the 18th anniversary of the genocide on community radio Huguka’s morning new broadcast on 22 April, he mixed up the Kinyarwanda words for “victims” and “survivors,” making it sound as though he approved of the genocide.His colleagues say it was just a slip of the tongue, pointing out that he read the same the news item the day before without any mistake. The radio station nonetheless fired him on 23 April and he was arrested the following day.“Without defending what Epaphrodite said, we condemn the fact that he was placed in pre-trial detention for something he said on the air,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The prosecutor’s 30-day detention order is out of all proportion to the offence. It will inevitably have the effect of intimidating all journalists and that is unacceptable. “We urge the judicial authorities to free him so that he can prepare his defence for the trial, which we hope will be fair and impartial. His dismissal by his radio station on disciplinary grounds was already a severe punishment. The authorities do not need to add imprisonment.”Reporters Without Borders continues to press for the decriminalization of media offences in Rwanda.Photo: Harabugira Epaphrodite Organisation Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continentcenter_img The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa April 6, 2020 Find out more May 11, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio presenter held pending trial after slip of the tongue News RwandaAfrica Follow the news on Rwanda News February 13, 2020 Find out more to go furtherlast_img read more

(NASDAQ: GUID), maker of EnCase®, software for digital investigations and endpoint data security, today announced it has funded a program at Caltech to support data security research using advanced anomaly science.Discoveries will be published and used by Caltech and Guidance Software to enhance data breach detection and incident response capabilities.“Hackers are relentless. Breaches of major corporate or government data centers are on the rise to the tune of billions of dollars in losses per year,” said Michael Harris, Chief Marketing Officer of Guidance Software. “Our industry is facing a massive labor shortage of cybersecurity specialists. To address this shortfall, we are working with data scientists at Caltech, one of the most respected research universities in the world, to use anomaly detection, complex event processing, and machine learning to help us thwart these breaches and reduce the damage to taxpayers and corporate profits.”The joint program will be run out of Caltech’s new Center for Data-driven Discovery, in collaboration with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The Center was established for the advancement of data-intensive, computationally enabled science and technology. This research will be conducted under the direction of principal scientist Julian Bunn and professor emeritus Mani Chandy, who have developed algorithms and processes to detect anomalous patterns in data sets used in critical areas such as earthquake prediction and now in the detection of advanced malware and their polymorphic variants.Timely and effective breach detection of modern threats requires a scientific approach based on machine learning and statistical models. The most common ways to deal with data security issues is through the use of signatures, blacklists or shared threat intelligence. These traditional approaches leave organizations open to the risk of unknown or zero-day malware, which can only be found by focusing on detection of anomalous or atypical behavior that may indicate unauthorized access to sensitive data.“We are thrilled to be working with Guidance Software on such an important initiative,” said Karina Edmonds, Executive Director for Corporate Sponsorships at Caltech. “Our institute is focused on applying science to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research. This work to solve for breach detection and malware discovery is consistent with our mission.”About California Institute of TechnologyThe California Institute of Technology (Caltech) is a world-renowned science and engineering research and education institution, where extraordinary faculty and students seek answers to complex questions, discover new knowledge, lead innovation, and transform our future. Caltech’s 124-acre campus is located in Pasadena, California. Visit: Center for Data-driven DiscoveryThe central focus of CD3 is methodologies for handling and analysis of large and complex data sets, in facilitating the data-to-discovery process.

CloudIQ – A Web-Based Fitness Tracker for Your Storage

first_imgThe healthcare industry is being revolutionized right in front of our eyes.  The world is shifting away from a visit to the doctor or a hospital, to a world in which it is easier than ever to get a complete view of your health anytime – from anywhere.We have fitness trackers, 3D-printed medical devices, AI, VR, robot-surgeons, and “wellness clinics” at your local pharmacy.  Healthcare is being transformed and I can’t imagine how it will evolve over the next 5-10 years.We are seeing the same transformation take place within storage system management and it’s why we are committed to bringing Dell EMC CloudIQ to all our storage products over the next 12 months.Dell EMC’s CloudIQ is like a fitness tracker for your storage environment.   It’s a web-based application that leverages machine learning to proactively monitor and measure the overall health of storage systems through intelligent, comprehensive, and predictive analytics.It pulls in over 5 billion data points and runs 5.5 million health checks per day to generate a storage health score between 0 -100. One score is able to give you a rough idea of how your systems are doing, and you can view all of your systems right from one page.The more it’s used, the more of a benefit you see. Our customers have been able to achieve an extremely high average storage health score of 97 (out of 100) across our Dell EMC Unity install base, and our SC and VMAX Series Early Access customers, with PowerMax and XtremIO right around the corner.How Do We Come Up With The Health Scores?You may wonder how these scores are determined. Well, the process is actually fairly simple. CloudIQ is continuously running proactive Health Checks across five categories to generate a health score:Components – checks for faulty components, such as faulty power supplies or a worn out cooling fansConfiguration – understands context and configuration for components including host connections that are not set up with redundancyCapacity – Detects capacity issues that could result in downtime – such as oversubscribed storage volumes or pools that are at their capacity limitPerformance – Pinpoints performance issues, such as when CPUs are running at very high utilization; it will also identify imbalances, so that workloads can be shifted around for optimal performanceData Protection – Audits data protection policies to ensure data is protected as required to help ensure both replication RPOs and snapshot policies for scheduling and retention are being metThe most impactful issue generates your total CloudIQ health score.  But, it doesn’t end there.  It also allows you to drill in and get helpful remediations for how to solve the identified issues.Let’s take an example in which a low health score causes us to dig in deeper.We click on the system and see Configuration is the top health check category impacting this storage system health score.Based on the CloudIQ’s analysis, the biggest impact to our score is a host that is incorrectly connected to our storage system by both iSCSI and FC.When clicking on the alert – CloudIQ offers a specific tip on how to resolve the issue with a reference to a support KB article. So CloudIQ lets you quickly identify the source of the issue and make the necessary changes to restore our health score.Just like a fitness tracker, CloudIQ is always working in the background to deliver a health score along with smart, centralized monitoring for our Dell EMC Unity customers today, and for PowerMax and SC Series as part of our CloudIQ early access program – contact your sales team to learn the details.Like any sensible person shouldn’t wait to go to the doctor until after they get sick, organizations can treat their data center storage in much the same way by getting proactive with CloudIQ.last_img read more
