Scottish government identifies case of mad cow disease
18 October 2018 - Scotland's government said on Thursday (8 October) that a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease, had been discovered on a farm in Aberdeenshire, the first in Britain since 2015. BSE was first detected in Britain in the late 1980s, spreading from there to other parts of Europe and ravaging cattle herds until the early 2000s. It has been linked to the brain-wasting Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans. (more)

Yemen conflict could push millions more to brink of famine: U.N.
17 October 2018 - The number of Yemenis on the brink of famine could rise to 12 million -- or two in five of the population -- from around 8.5 million in coming months due to escalating war and a deepening economic crisis, the United Nations food agency said on Monday (15 October). Yemen has been torn apart by more than three years of civil war between the internationally recognized government, backed by a Saudi-led military coalition and based in the south, and the Iran-aligned Houthi movement that controls the north, including the capital Sanaa. The nation of some 30 million is the Arabian peninsula's poorest. (more)

The Big Hack: How China used a tiny chip to infiltrate U.S. companies
4 October 2018 - The attack by Chinese spies reached almost 30 U.S. companies, including Amazon and Apple, by compromising America's technology supply chain, according to extensive interviews with government and corporate sources. ... Nested on the servers' motherboards, the testers found a tiny microchip, not much bigger than a grain of rice, that wasn't part of the boards' original design. Amazon reported the discovery to U.S. authorities, sending a shudder through the intelligence community. Elemental's servers could be found in Department of Defense data centers, the CIA's drone operations, and the onboard networks of Navy warships. And Elemental was just one of hundreds of Supermicro customers. (more)

China planted chips in Apple and Amazon servers, report claims
4 October 2018 - A Chinese military unit has been inserting tiny microchips into computer servers used by companies including Apple and Amazon that give China unprecedented backdoor access to computers and data, according to a new Bloomberg report. The tiny chips, as small as the tip of a sharpened pencil and designed to be undetectable without specialist equipment, were implanted on to the motherboards of servers on the production line in China, the report in Bloomberg Businessweek said.

Physicist Donna Strickland had to win a Nobel Prize to get on Wikipedia
4 October 2018 - What does a female scientist have to do to get her own Wikipedia page? Literally win the Nobel Prize. Dr. Donna Strickland, an associate professor at the University of Waterloo in Canada, won the Nobel Prize in Physics this week for her research on laser amplification. She shared the prize with her doctoral adviser Gerard Mourou. Strickland is only the third female Nobel laureate in physics, and the only living one (the others were Marie Curie and Marie Goeppert-Mayer). The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said Strickland's work had 'revolutionized laser physics.' It also revolutionized her Wikipedia profile -- previously she only had a passing mention in Mourou's entry. .... And now that Strickland is a Nobel laureate with a Wikipedia page, fans on social media said she should apply to become a full professor. (more)

Female Nobel prize winner deemed not important enough for Wikipedia entry
3 October 2018 - When the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm announced the Nobel prize for physics this week, anyone wanting to find out more about one of the three winners would have drawn a blank on Wikipedia. Until around an hour and a half after the award was announced on Tuesday, the Canadian physicist Donna Strickland was not deemed significant enough to merit her own page on the user-edited encyclopedia.

Huge Facebook breach leaves thousands of other apps vulnerable
2 October 2018 - Remember the Facebook hack last week that compromised at least 50m accounts? It's worse than you think. Last Friday (28 September), the social media company revealed a vulnerability that allowed attackers to steal automated log-in credentials (or 'tokens'). The tokens make it easier for people to log into popular apps and services like Spotify, Pinterest, or Yelp. The flaw, which has been present since July 2017, was discovered last month after Facebook engineers noticed unusual login activity. (more)

30 September 2018 - The toll from an earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia soared to 832 confirmed dead on Sunday (30 September), with authorities fearing the numbers will climb as rescuers grappled to get aid to outlying communities cut off from communications and help. Dozens of people were reported to be trapped in the rubble of several hotels and a mall in the city of Palu, on Sulawesi island, which was hit by waves as high as six meters (20 feet) following the 7.5 magnitude earthquake on Friday.
