March 26, 2021 Find out more Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV August 14, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A second online journalist assaulted Organisation News UkraineEurope – Central Asia September 7, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today voiced concern about a violent attack on the night of 12 August on Edouard Malinivsky of the online newspaper Ostriv. The second online journalist to be assaulted in less than a month, Malinivsky was waylaid by thugs as he left a café in the eastern town of Donetsk at about 11 pm. He received several heavy blows to the head but his injuries were not life-threatening.”We are worried by the steady increase in violence against journalists and we ask you to take effective measures to ensure that a feeling of impunity does not take hold,” Reporters Without Borders said in a letter to interior minister Yuri Smirnov. The organisation also said that investigators should not rule out the possibility that the attack was connected with Malinivsky’s work.Ostriv has carried articles that are very critical of “oligarchs” in the town of Donetsk. But the Institute of Mass Information (IMI) reported that the police were working on the assumption that it was just an altercation between drunken individuals and had detained a suspected participant.Oleg Eltsov, the editor of the online newspaper Ukraina Kryminalna, was assaulted by two thugs as he left his home in Kiev on 24 July. He attributed the attack to his coverage of the murder of journalist Georgiy Gongadze, above all his reporting of information supplied by Igor Gontcharov, a former member of the criminal investigative police who was arrested in May 2002 for his suspected role in several murders.A key witness, Gontcharov accused police and senior interior ministry officials of being responsible for the death of Gongadze, a political reporter and editor of the online newspaper Ukraina Pravda who went missing in 2000. Gontcharov died on 1 August 2003 in prison in unclear circumstances.

“The president of the Republic is very well disposed toward helping the armed forces so that we can move forward,” the high-ranking military officer emphasized. Honduran president Porfirio Lobo and the high command of the armed forces agreed to strengthen the fight against drug trafficking in light of the increase in this criminal activity, official sources announced. “We have received the administration’s support for our already-existing programs because we are worried about problems like drug trafficking,” the inspector-general of the Air Force, Ruiz Pastor Landa, told the press upon leaving a meeting held at the President’s House. By Dialogo February 18, 2010 I wish the guerilla fighters would understand that the Colombian people do not want them, and that they would stop making such a mess. If they want to seize power they should do it electorally. In reality they are a bunch of cowards that attack defenseless settlements. I congratulate the President of Colombia for taking a serious attitude towards the street trash that call themselves guerrillas, those who want easy money, mistreating the long suffering people of Colombia. Burn them, Colombian Army. Salutations The military commanders were led by the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Romeo Vásquez. Landa said that the members of the armed forces expressed to the president their concerns about the increase in drug-trafficking activity in the country and asked for support to install radar equipment in order to detect the clandestine flights of “narco-planes.” A total of forty-nine small planes landed and were then burned or suffered accidents in different regions of Honduras last year, and on Tuesday an airstrip used by drug traffickers was discovered in the La Masica region of Atlántida department, about 500 km north of the capital. About seven tons of illegal drugs were seized last year by the combined forces of Honduras and the United States, but the U.S. embassy in Tegucigalpa estimates that about one hundred tons of drugs pass through Honduran territory, waters, or airspace annually on the way from South to North America.
At the Undergraduate Student Government Senate meeting Tuesday night, Rahul Madduluri, a junior majoring in computer engineering, and Suvil Deora, a PhD candidate in electrical engineering, announced the development of SafeNet, an upcoming system of theft detection and assault prevention developed at USC.“[SafeNet] will help people trace their belongings and protect them from assault,” Deora said. “This technology takes the form of small wearables. You can put them in your backpack, in your bike or [on your body].”Deora then walked the student senators through a hypothetical theft and the SafeNet response.“Once you park your bike you will get a notification, which means your bike has been electronically locked,” Deora said. “The system then activates as soon as your bike is moved, but it won’t send an alarm to DPS unless it moves more than 10 meters. If that happens, it will send a notification to your phone, but there’s also a setting in the app that contacts DPS right away.”Maddulari expressed how SafeNet will be simple in implementation and low in price.“The student pays $15 and puts [SafeNet] on their bike or on [himself or herself],” Rahul said. “Then, someone with a wearable [device] can press one button, and as soon he or she is in trouble [DPS] will know where he or she is. It’s pretty simple.”Deora explained the logistics behind the technology, which requires a tight network of station bases around campus.“We plant to implement a network around USC that allows DPS to track devices around when they are turned on or when a student is in a distress[ing] situation. There will be base stations on every block connected in a cell network,” Deora said. “With the technology you will be able to actually tell … which floor or which corner you are. Things can be tracked to specific places. That is the beauty of the technology.”Madduluri then enumerated the benefits of SafeNet against other market competitors.“The best part of [SafeNet] is that you don’t need Wi-Fi, no cell reception and no data cost. You buy this $15 device and that’s it,” Madduluri said. “They are also tamper-proof. If someone tried to break the wearables, we will still get a notification.”Following a request from senators, Deora gave a figure for the cost of starting the system.“The cost will depend on how much area the university plans to cover, but it will come to be at $300,000 for a start,” Deora said. “However, after that point, we’re only looking at $7000 for each square mile block of coverage you add. Once that is in place, everything will be cheap afterwards.”Deora said that he and Madduluri saw a need on campus and responded to it.“I’ve seen a lot of crime around campus,” Deora said. “Because this had been bothering students and the administration a lot, we asked if we could use the technology outside of the classroom.”Senators also asked Deora for a possible timeline for implementation.“Our first shipment of wearable devices comes next week. We will tweak them and get them working in a month’s time,” Deora said. “During the first part of the project, devices are to be handed [out] for free, which will be provided for in the original budget. Once people see this working, they will then start investing. And most parents would like their kids to wear this device.”Madduluri attributed the source of his motivation for working on SafeNet to personal experience.“The shooting [at] the Black Alumni Association [event] in the middle of campus happened my freshman year, and one of my best friends was 10 feet away from the shooter,” Madduluri said. “This struck pretty close to home, and I knew this was something I felt a passion for. Students prefer to have false alarms than to have those real arrests and thefts.”Deora also discussed his motivations for working on the project.“I started working on a localization project as part of my PhD. My electrical engineering professor [Bhaksar Krishnamachari] said we should think of taking this outside the lab. We had thought of similar applications in 2012, but there had been too many hurdles, and we’re finally here,” Deora said. “This technology was invented here at USC; we have been working on it and we want to use it.”
