Des comptes Gmail Hotmail et Yahoo Mail victimes de hackers

first_imgDes comptes Gmail, Hotmail et Yahoo Mail victimes de hackersLes messageries de Google, MSN et Yahoo ont été victimes d’attaques informatiques, dont Google soupçonne la Chine d’en être à l’origine.La Chine commandite-t-elle les attaques informatiques dont sont victimes les messageries des principaux groupes Internet ? La société Trend Micro, spécialisée dans la conception de logiciels de sécurité, a expliqué que si “les attaques semblent avoir été menées indépendamment les unes des autres, elles ont des ressemblances significatives”. Mais elle se garde bien de désigner un coupable présumé, relaye Numerama. Une précaution que Google n’a pas pris dans un billet de blog publié mercredi et qui explique que les attaques dont a été victime sa messagerie proviennent de la ville chinoise Jinan.Selon le moteur de recherche, cela concorde avec les personnes ciblées par ces attaques, de hauts responsables de l’administration américaine, des activistes chinois, des fonctionnaires de différents pays d’Asie, du personnel militaire et des journalistes. L’Empire du Milieu a vivement réagi en qualifiant ces accusations d'”inacceptables”. “Le piratage est un problème international est la Chine est aussi une victime”, a ainsi lâché le porte-parole du ministère des affaires étrangères chinois, Hong Lei. “Ces allégations sont très graves, nous les prenons au sérieux et nous les examinons”, a pour sa part réagi la secrétaire d’Etat Hillary Clinton. Le 6 juin 2011 à 12:12 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

La maladie de Parkinson accroît le risque de mélanome

first_imgLa maladie de Parkinson accroît le risque de mélanomeLes personnes qui souffrent de la maladie de Parkinson ont jusqu’à deux fois plus de risques que les autres d’avoir un cancer de la peau mortel, d’après une méta-analyse portant sur 12 études et publiée hier.En s’appuyant sur plus d’une dizaine d’études conduites entre 1965 et 2010, l’Institut national américain des sciences de santé environnementale a mis en évidence, à travers un papier publié hier dans la revue Neurology, un risque accru de mélanome chez les malades de Parkinson.Selon ces chercheurs, les femmes souffrant cette maladie neuro-dégénérative ont 1,5 fois plus de risques que le reste de la population de contracter un mélanome, la forme la plus dangereuse de cancer de la peau, rapporte l’AFP. Les hommes, eux, ont deux fois plus de risques. Toutefois, aucun lien entre la maladie de Parkinson et d’autres types de cancer de la peau n’est apparu lorsque les chercheurs ont examiné les 12 études qui ont servi à leur analyse.À lire aussiUn ventre à bière cachait en fait une tumeur cancéreuse de trente-cinq kilos”L’une des explications possibles à ce lien entre la maladie de Parkinson et le mélanome est que les deux maladies pourraient avoir des facteurs de risques génétiques ou environnementaux en commun”, explique Honglei Chen, auteur de l’analyse, cité par l’agence de presse. Le chercheur précise en revanche que “la compréhension de ce lien est encore très parcellaire”.La maladie de Parkinson touche entre 5 et 10 millions de personnes dans le monde et environ 132.000 mélanomes sont diagnostiqués chaque année au niveau mondial selon les chiffres de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé.Le 13 juin 2011 à 13:12 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Samsung sassocie à Jays pour contre le duo infernal HTCBeats by DrDre

first_imgSamsung s’associe à Jays pour contre le duo infernal HTC-Beats by Dr.DreLe fabricant sud-coréen a conclu un partenariat avec le fabricant de casques Jays pour contrer le duo HTC-Beats by Dr.Dre.L’accord passé il y a quelques mois entre HTC et Beats by Dr.Dre en avait surpris plus d’un mais le succès de ces casques audio, au top de la hype en ce moment, a incité la concurrence à s’activer. Après le partenariat entre Nokia et Monster, c’est désormais Samsung qui a passé un accord avec une marque de casque, le Suédois Jays, explique Frandroid. Moins connu que ses concurrents, Jays a néanmoins reçu de nombreuses distinctions pour ses produits de qualité. Les premiers à profiter de cet accord seront les Sud-Coréens, avant une éventuelle extension au niveau mondial.

Businessweek Sees First Quarter Upswing in Ad Pages

first_imgBloomberg Businessweek relaunched in April 2010. The redesign included an “Opening Remarks” column for each issue. The magazine was also divided into five sections: global economics, companies and industries, politics and policy, technology and markets and finance. The boost in editorial is a result of utilizing 146 bureaus in 72 countries. Bloomberg Businessweek is certainly seeing the fruits of its redesign labors.According to figures released by the Publisher’s Information Bureau, Businessweek experienced an increase of 49 percent in ad sales for 2011’s first quarter, compared to 2010’s first quarter.Businessweek has also been nominated for the National Magazine Awards, and is launching a new iPad app this month.Hugh Wiley, the publisher of Businessweek, said, “We’ve positioned ourselves in the marketplace as an investment story – sending the strong message that we’re the only business magazine that is investing while others are cutting back – and as the only weekly and global business magazine with an eye on preparing our readers for the week ahead.”last_img read more

BMW Daimler invest over 1B in Uberfighting mobility group

first_imgRumors have circulated for years that BMW and Daimler may one day merge their mobility ventures in an attempt to underscore established players in the industry like Uber and Lyft. Now we finally have a bit more information about what to expect.BMW and Daimler on Friday unveiled their grand plan to put their mobility services under a single roof. The two automakers will invest more than 1 billion euros (about $1.1 billion) to create five separate joint ventures: Reach Now, Charge Now, Free Now, Park Now and Share Now.”Our mobility services have developed a strong customer base and we are now taking the next strategic step,” said Dieter Zetsche, chairman of Daimler AG, in a statement. “We are pooling the strength and expertise of 14 successful brands and investing more than 1 billion euro to establish a new player in the fast-growing market for urban mobility.” The two automakers claim more than 60 million customers have already used their services, so they have a well-established base as a jumping-off point.Enlarge ImageOne (very) big happy family. BMW Reach Now will focus on multimodal transport. It’ll let you book and pay for a wide variety of transportation options, including public transport, bike rentals, car sharing and ride hailing. Charge Now will help you find public charging points, and it, too, will include built-in payment options that will work in multiple countries. Park Now seeks to improve the process of finding and reserving parking spots. Free Now will focus on ride hailing, including private chauffeurs and electric scooters. Finally, Share Now will be a car-sharing service that will let you rent and pay for a free-floating pool of available vehicles via a smart device.The groups will be helmed in Berlin, and the two automakers expect that their joint ventures will create about 1,000 jobs worldwide. The early phases of the program will focus on “investment and growth,” as BMW said in its press release, with “attractive profitability” to follow – something Uber is still working on, given its fourth-quarter loss of $1.1 billion.Eventually, BMW and Daimler want these services to grow even closer. BMW makes mention of a fleet of “all-electric autonomous” vehicles that will one day join the service. They’ll park and charge themselves, leaving users free to spend their time worrying about other things — like whether to buy a BMW or a Mercedes, since the two will remain rivals in every other sense of the term.

first_imgTechnology | November 27, 2008 MRI Monitor Features Wireless ECG, SpO2 Invivo’s next-generation MRI patient vital signs monitor, the Precess Patient Management Configuration, is built off of Invivo’s flagship Precess 3160 platform and reportedly utilizes the industry’s first wireless ECG and wireless SpO2 patient vital signs. The Precess Patient Management configuration helps close the gap between MRI monitors and OR monitors. The monitor features flexible mounting. Now anesthesia providers can have their MRI monitor mounted to their anesthesia machine just like they do in the OR. Mounting the entire MRI monitor to the anesthesia machine provides one common location for the clinician to access their equipment. Clinicians now have better access to the patient by having all lines from the MRI monitor and the anesthesia machine from a single location. In addition to anesthesia mounts for all MRI anesthesia machines, this monitor also can be mounted to a wall or MRI table to help provide more usable room and better patient access in the MRI, a feature designed to enhance workflow.

Affordability an Issue for Most Millennial Homebuyers

first_img Down Payment Home Homebuyers Millennials Purchase Starter Home 2018-01-22 Staff Writer January 22, 2018 644 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News A majority of millennials who plan to buy their first home in the next 36 months say they can’t afford the type of home they would like to live in, according to data provided to MReport by ValueInsured. The company surveyed 1,019 adults who were planning to buy their first home in the next 36 months, but did not currently own a home. The report said that 76 percent of the respondents lived in a home where they paid rent and 24 percent lived in a home where they did not pay rent.Of the millennials surveyed, 54 percent plan to buy a “forever home” or a home where they can live for a while and 40 percent would like to buy a starter home that they can upgrade from. As far as budgets are concerned, 74 percent said that they plan to cap their next home purchase budget at $250,000. While 38 percent said they would like to live in their new home with their spouse or partner with children, 16 percent planned to share their home purchase with friends, roommates or rental tenants. However, only 36 percent were confident that they could afford the down payment now to buy the kind of home they would like to live in.The report indicated that a majority of millennials cannot afford to buy a home now and even among those who could afford to buy immediately, only 46 percent thought that now was a good time to buy a home. Around 55 percent of respondents said they were concerned with timing the market and wanted to make sure they were not buying at overvalued rates.Moving jobs or losing a job was a major concern for these first-time buyers with 48 percent being concerned about a job move or a job loss after they committed to buying a home.The survey also highlighted the top three criteria that these homebuyers look for in an ideal home with a nicer home that needs less upgrade or renovation; a bigger home with more room or space; and access to better schools making it to this list.center_img Share Affordability an Issue for Most Millennial Homebuyerslast_img read more

The Rise of Mortgage Brokers with Millennials

first_imgThe Rise of Mortgage Brokers with Millennials 14 days ago 430 Views Share Anthony CasaThe second annual National Mortgage Brokers Day on Thursday, July 18, was a success, according to the Chairman of the Association of Independent Mortgage Experts (AIME), Anthony Casa, as brokers are finding a renewed life in the market. “For the second year in a row, mortgage brokers are better,” Casa said. “One out of three millennial homebuyers now partner with a mortgage broker to help them finance their first home. Millennials are doing more research and finding mortgage brokers provide more savings, personalized service, and no fees.”Casa—who also appeared of Cheddar TV’s Morning Bell show on Thursday, broadcasting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange—said millennial homebuyers will push brokers into the fourth-largest lending force, by volume, by early 2020. More than 70 million millennials still do not own a home, and are using brokers to help them find the best deal on a loan, Casa said. “The big reason why that’s happening is, the starter home price is fairly high, and many millennials are coming into the market and not able to find a property in their price range that they really desire, coming out of their are rentals,” Casa said. He added that working with independent brokers creates an opportunity to help first-time buyers get the property the want, or the ability to borrow at lower interest rates, as brokers can deliver “at least a half a percent lower” than most banks and lenders. “So you’re increasing your buying power, or the ability to have an expert hand walk you through renovation financing and set up the fixer-upper loans that are out there,” Casa said. “Freddie Mac just rolled out a new fixer-upper program, and that’s the market that mortgage brokers do exceptionally well in. So that is, from my perspective, I think when it comes to this home buyer, or the millennial home buyer, that they really need something that’s not cookie-cutter.” Utilizing brokers for millennial buyers can also help them get into the home they want without paying the traditional 20% down payment, Casa said, adding that the average down payment for a millennial home buyer over the past two years has been about 5%. While the housing industry is quickly integrating technology and automated processes, Casa said the issues with using technology in the mortgage realm is the lack of education that takes place.“You have millennials that are buying their first home. They’re making their biggest financial decision of their life … So it’s important that they really truly understand not just the mortgage vehicle that they’re getting into, but they have to look at the mortgage vehicle in the context of the bigger picture,” Casa said. Casa said that while brokers are finding a renewed market in the millennial buyer, there is an “acceleration” of banks re-entering the mortgage space—nearly a decade after the housing crisis. He said the first major bank to remove itself from residential mortgage was Wells Fargo in 2008, with many following suit. However, lenders are coming back and it’s a trend that seems to be gaining steam. “I mean just in the last 12 months, you have the number-three lender in the country, Penny Mac home loans … they opened a wholesale division. Mr. Cooper acquired, which is one of the biggest servicers in the country, acquired Pacific Union Financial and they entered the wholesale space,” Casa said. The reason for the change, according to Casa, is the removal of fraud, greed, and misrepresentation that plagued the industry in 2008“And then they transition, through regulation, turned into financial advisors and there was licensing, there was a lot of kind of due diligence that went into becoming an advisor and there’s a lot of checks and balances,” Casa said. center_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination millennial borrowers mortgage Mortgage Brokers 2019-07-19 Mike Albaneselast_img read more

The Suns did it in the 1992-93; 2004-05; and 2006-07 seasons.Let’s take it to the next level. Have we ever had the “Team to Beat”?It’s a highly subjective conversation.Before the playoffs began were the 2001 D-backs the “Team to Beat”? Not with the mighty Yankees looming.Kurt Warner’s Super Bowl Cardinals team was the so-called worst playoff team ever.I don’t remember feeling like Jake Plummer’s ASU team was the favorite to win the national championship even though they were undefeated.For me, and again, this is entirely debatable the two teams that come the closest were Charles Barkley’s Suns teams after they lost in the Finals to the Bulls and the 2006-07 Suns team.Barkley and the Suns were never going to beat Michael Jordan but the minute MJ’s baseball career began certainly the argument could be made the Suns were the “Team to Beat”.As for 06-07, the Suns enjoyed a 61-win season, but recall the Mavs had 67. Maybe not the team to beat before the Mavs were upset by the Warriors, but certainly after. That “Team to Beat” was done in by Robert Horry’s hip, Amar’e Stoudamire’s bad decision and David Stern’s letter of the law.last_img read more

Stephanie Blythe stars in Met production of Cendr

first_imgStephanie Blythe stars in Met production of ‘Cendrillon’ This image released by the Metropolitan Opera shows Stephanie Blythe, center, as the wicked stepmother Mme. de la Haltiere in Massenet’s “Cendrillon,” with Maya Lahyani, left, and Ying Fang as her daughters. The opera will be broadcast Saturday as the season’s final Live in HD presentation from the Metropolitan Opera. (Ken Howard/Metropolitain Opera via AP) NEW YORK, N.Y. – It was opening night for the Metropolitan Opera’s production of Massenet’s “Cendrillon” and Stephane Blythe — all but absent from the house for three years — was nervous as she sat backstage waiting to go on as the wicked stepmother.“I could feel the butterflies coming up, and I remember thinking, ‘Oh, there’s no going back now,’” the American mezzo-soprano recalled in an interview. “And all of a sudden I thought, ‘You know, my character, Madame de la Haltiere, is not nervous right now. She’s angry, she’s frustrated, she’s excited. So why don’t you just let her take over? So I did. I just sat back, and I just became her before I came onstage and everything was calm, everything was fine.”Better than fine, according to the critics. James Jorden on the Observer.com website praised Blythe’s “scene-stealing turn,” while Zachary Woolfe in The New York Times wrote: “Her voice enormous and rich, Ms. Blythe wields it with palpable joy and considerable wit. Through sheer force of personality, her Haltiere takes on almost shocking humanity without stinting cartoonish glee.”“Cendrillon,” a French version of the Cinderella story, stars two other mezzos — Joyce DiDonato in the title role and Alice Coote as Prince Charming — and will be broadcast to movie theatres worldwide Saturday as the last of the Met’s Live in HD presentations this season.Blythe has more than 200 Met performances to her credit since her 1995 debut, often in supporting roles made memorable by her all-enveloping voice and incisive delivery. She seems equally at home in comedy (Dame Quickly in Verdi’s “Falstaff,” Baba the Turk in Stravinsky’s “The Rake’s Progress) or more sombre fare (Fricka in Wagner’s “Ring” cycle, Cornelia in Handel’s “Giulio Cesare”).But “Cendrillon” had never been staged at the Met before, and Blythe said that when she signed on for the project, the role of the haughty, overbearing Madame de la Haltiere “was not in my sights at all.”She said she found it “outrageously difficult to learn in terms of text … a lot of words jammed into a very little space.” But vocally it’s “a great part for me because it allows me to stretch more in the bottom range of my voice, which is nice because as I get older my voice is filling out more in the bottom … I always wanted to be a contralto, so I’m happy that I can sing a C below middle C.”Blythe had not performed in a full opera at the Met since 2015, though she took part in the company’s 50th-anniversary gala in 2017. She’s been busy elsewhere, often with unconventional projects: Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd,” a tour singing Kate Smith standards and a cabaret act with a drag queen that will be featured in Opera Philadelphia’s fall festival.And she’ll be back at the Met next season, taking on the Marquise de Berkenfeld in Donizetti’s comic romp “La Fille du Regiment” and reprising her roles in each of Puccini’s three one-act operas performed together as “Il Trittico.”ALL IN THE TIMINGBlythe credits director Laurent Pelly and conductor Bertrand de Billy with helping the cast fine-tune the comedy that makes “Cendrillon” such a treat.“I don’t think I’ve ever done an opera where the music and the movement and the intention and the set all work in concert so well together,” she said. “What makes comedy is beats. When a joke particularly lands, it’s all about rhythm, it’s about space, it’s allowing something to hit.“Everything has to happen at exactly the right moment or it’s not funny,” she said. “And what’s beautiful is that because we’ve done the work, we can enjoy it. And the audience can feel that.”WHERE TO SEE IT“Cendrillon,” which also stars soprano Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother and baritone Laurent Naouri as the heroine’s father, will be shown Saturday. A list of theatres can be found at the Met’s website: http://www.metopera.org/hd.
