A questionnaire was answered by 240 Swedish museums showed that at least 66 have been human remains in their collections. Human remains of tens of thousands of individuals are in the collections of 66 museums Swedish. Most remnants collected during archaeological surveys and from prehistoric times or the Middle Ages, according to the Historical Museum. 43 of museums have only remnants of Sweden, only five from other parts of the world. The working group which worked on the survey suggests that there should be a more detailed survey of the presence of remains from minority groups and indigenous peoples in museums. "We also recommend that the work carried out on state initiatives to develop national guidelines for the management and ethics surrounding human remains in museums in Sweden", says Fredrik Svanberg, director of research at the Historical Museum, in a press release.
The proposed LCS frigate upgrade design from Austal, based on its Freedom class trimaran LCS hull.Rather than picking an entirely new design or going with designs already being produced—including a proposed version of a ship already being built for the US Coast Guard—the Navy's Small Combatant working group chose instead to opt for a "stretch" version of the existing LCS designs.And the lack of a defined mission was seen as a positive by its backers.Back to the drawing board, sort ofThe concepts for both the Zumwalt and LCS designs originated in the mid-1990s.Originally intended to consist of 32 ships, the Zumwalt class was winnowed down over its development cycle to three, drastically raising the price tag of each because of the more than $9 billion sunk into initial RAnd the modular concept hasn't worked out as well for the LCS as was hoped, particularly as some of the weapons systems it was originally supposed to carry failed to materialize or failed in testing.Still, the initial "block" buy of LCS ships has steamed ahead at full speed, with six delivered so far and another 20 already under construction with four due for delivery this year .
Dermatologists pick apart the EWG s sunscreen report every year it comes out, but the EWG keeps on repeating the same mistakes.The FDA doesn t like high SPF labels, but that s just because 100 is no better than 50, and they re worried that people will think the 100 is better.Just about everything in the world is safe in a small enough dose, and unsafe in a large enough dose.Research on sunscreen safety is an ongoing thing, of course, and the FDA is asking manufacturers for even more safety data on sunscreens.But they d rather create lists of best and worst products in a category where there s no science to say that any of them pose risks to human health.They make money by selling you the safe sunscreens they pick, and they make money by selling an EWG Verified stamp to companies whose products rate well in their database.
Russia is technologically ready to launch such large-scale projects as Elon Musk s Hyperloop, Russian minister of transport Maxim Sokolov said in mid-May at a press briefing in the southern Russian city of Sochi.As reported by Russian business daily RBC, this Hyperloop-like transport system would link the western and eastern ends as well as the northern and southern ends of the country — the largest in the world.The first section of the transport system could link Moscow to St. Petersburg — a distance of nearly 650 kilometers, — according to Anatolyi Zaitsev, an official from the St. Petersburg State Transport University cited by RBC.According to western price standards, implementing such a project would cost $21 billion, while in Russia the cost would not exceed $12-13 billion, RBC quoted Zaitsev as saying.Zaitsev also said that the project has been backed by Gordon Atlantic, an international economic development service operator.At the opening phase, which has been funded by Gordon Atlantic , we have managed to create magnetic levitation to lift any weight.Supported by the investor, we are now taking final steps in equipping the laboratory where materials to be used in the project will be selected.In the future, however, more significant funding will be required, adds Zaitsev.On its side Russian Railways, the national railway company, is considering cooperation with Hyperloop One, one of the two US companies developing such projects.Russian Railways and Hyperloop One have created a working group to study the concept, Russian business daily Vedomosti has learned from Caspian VC, a Russian venture fund which owns a stake in Hyperloop One.Formed a few months ago, the working group is waiting for the results of the recent testing of high-speed Hyperloop trains.This post first appeared on East-West Digital News.
China and the United States signed an anti-hacking accord in September last year, brokered during Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to Washington, including a pledge that neither country would knowingly carry out hacking for commercial advantages.The agreement marked an ongoing effort to repair relations after China withdrew from a working group in 2014 in response to the U.S. indictment of five members of its military on charges it hacked six U.S. companies.Meeting in Beijing, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Undersecretary Suzanne Spaulding said the focus on the talks was to make sure both sides fulfilled commitments made by the two presidents."We look forward to discussing the commitments we made with regards to not engaging in IP theft of trade secrets and confidential business information," she told reporters."We want to bring the discussions from policies on paper to actual implementation," Guo said.China, Russia and Iran are among what the United States believes are its most prolific and sophisticated hacking adversaries.
Go ahead, have another cup of coffee, the World Health Organization says it s OK.The International Agency for Research on Cancer IARC , a group of 23 scientists who make up a WHO Working Group, released the results of their examination of scientific studies about the potential cancer risks of coffee, maté, and very hot drinks.After reviewing more than 1,000 previous studies, the IARC released a summary of its findings.The full analysis was published in The Lancet Oncology.However, the experts did find that drinking very hot beverages 140 degrees or higher probably causes cancer of the oesophagus in humans.So not only is coffee essentially cleared for causing cancer in other organs, it looks like it can help prevent liver and uterine cancer.
Amazon.com Inc. s cloud computing division remains "committed" to opening a London data center by early next year, even after the British public s vote for the U.K. to leave the EU.It will also offer local customers the option of hosting data in Germany or Ireland, a company executive said Thursday.For us it s business as usual," Stephen Orban, head of enterprise strategy at Amazon Web Services, said in an interview at a customer conference Thursday in Frankfurt.Britain s vote last week to break away from the EU has raised concerns about how data-storage regulations in Europe and the U.K. will evolve."We re watching the situation but I can t speculate how everything is going to unfold," Orban said.AWS is discussing the matter with the EU s Article 29 working group on data protection, he said.Britain s decision to leave the EU could make using the planned London center more complicated for customers if the U.K. adheres to different rules than the rest of Europe about storing and safeguarding data.

And email is a key driver of those metrics, generating more leads, conversions and revenue than any other distribution channel.Unfortunately, the most valuable marketing channel is also the least secure.In the first quarter of 2016, the Anti-Phishing Working Group APWG observed more phishing attacks than at any other time in history.Below, we explore three ways phishing destroys your marketing ROI — and what you can do about it.If your company s email channel is targeted by cybercriminals, you can expect that metrics like these will suffer:To discover how, Return Path my employer conducted an analysis of Gmail and Yahoo inbox placement rates and read rates within 10 days of a detected phishing attack.
Cybersecurity issues have plagued Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton s campaign for months, from her long-running email controversy to the recent hacks of the Democratic National Committee and the campaign itself.But cybersecurity experts appear to be embracing Clinton s campaign — a fundraiser will be held for the campaign during Black Hat, a hacker conference taking place this week in Las Vegas.The event will feature Jeff Moss, the founder of the Black Hat and DEF CON security conferences, Jake Braun, a former security consultant for the Department of Homeland Security, and Michael Sulmeyer, the coordinator of the Clinton campaign s Cybersecurity Working Group, according to Clinton s website.The trio is slated to discuss cyber policy issues facing the next president, and tickets will run from $100 to $2,700.The fundraiser comes just a few days after Clinton s campaign was reportedly hacked.A Clinton campaign spokesperson told TechCrunch that an analytics data program used by the campaign was breached during the DNC hack, but outside security experts had not discovered any breach of the campaign s internal systems.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been holed up in the embassy for over four yearsJulian Assange speaks to supporters outside from a balcony at Ecuador's embassy in London on Aug. 19, 2012.Ecuador has granted a request from Swedish prosecutors to question WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at its embassy in London, where he has been holed up for over four years.Assange was granted asylum by Ecuador in 2012 after he slipped into the country s embassy in the U.K.He is wanted by police in Sweden for questioning in connection with a sexual assault investigation.U.K. police have said that they would arrest Assange to meet an extradition request from Sweden if he steps out from the Ecuador embassy.
In a pilot programme that could have huge implications for the future of cyber security law enforcement, the City of London Police will be pursuing cyber criminals through civil courts rather than criminal courts.The force will work with private sector law firms to seize and recover assets from criminals through civil litigation procedures for the recovery of assets.The force s Economic Crime Directorate believes that this method will allow far quicker identification, seizure and return of assets to victims.The scheme will initially last two years, and will trial this new method of recovery.The working group will include representatives from the police as well as the National Crime Agency and Metropolitan Police Service.The approach will not replace recovery under the Proceeds of Crime Act, but will work in tandem with it.
Ripple chief technical officer Stefan Thomas gave some insights about W3C's Web Payments Working Group.As a co-chair of W3C's Web Payments Working Group, Ripple comes in regular contact with big tech companies and there is "a lot of interest" from them about Ripple's Interledger Protocol ILP .Thomas said the likes of Google, Apple, Mozilla and others have been coming together to try to find a better user experience for payments on the web, and one of the big hindrances for that is the reliance on the card networks.Thomas told IBTimes UK: "At these forums is where we run in to them Google, Apple etc and we obviously notice the issues that they are having with the card networks and we think that Interledger is a really good solution."From a sort of business strategic perspective, the big tech companies absolutely hate the card issuers, because they are another powerful player and something the big tech companies don't like is sharing market power."Thomas said the majority of the big tech players' ire is directed at Visa, which is now competing directly with PayPal, Worldpay and some other user-facing solutions with Visa Checkout.
Project Fear is back, and it wants your plonkNew alcohol advice published today reiterates that the recommended maximum intake weekly for male adults should halve from 28 to 14 units - barely enough to fill a bowl with electric soup*.To keep health risks from alcohol to a low level it is safest not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis, the guidelines state PDF .The opinion of the UK s Chief Health Jobsworth official title: Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies is that there is no safe level of drinking.Professor Spiegelhalter, the Winton Professor for the Public Understanding of Risk in the Statistical Laboratory at Cambridge University, pointed out that the no safe level message contradicted the working group s guiding principle that the public needed to be able to make an informed choice , not get scared into obedience.Eating a bacon sandwich, or watching an hour of TV, posed more long-term health risks than moderate alcohol consumption, he wrote.
Humans have impacted the Earth so significantly with nuclear tests and plastic pollution that we ve triggered the start of a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene.The Working Group on the Anthropocene WGA suggests that the starting date of the new geological epoch should be 1950 – the year when radioactive deposits from nuclear tests began to become part of the Earth s crust.The group, which voted 30 to three in favour of formally designating the Anthropocene, presented its recommendation to the International Geological Congress in Cape Town.Humans have also dramatically accelerated animal and plant extinction rates, left permanent traces of burnt fossil fuels in sediment and glacial ice and, through the use of fertilisers, doubled the amount of nitrogen in the Earth s soil.Plastic pollution is now so common that microplastic particles may well leave behind identifiable fossils for future generations.These changes are so significant, the researchers argue, that they signal the end of current 12,000-year-old Holocene epoch.

Enlarge / Go ahead and click it.Despite mandatory corporate training, general security awareness, and constant harping about the risks of clicking on unverified links in e-mails and other documents, people have been, are now, and forever will click links where exploit kits and malware lurk.Eric Rand and Nik Labele believe they have an answer to this problem—an answer that could potentially derail not just phishing attacks but other manner of malware as well.Instead of relying on the intelligence of users, Rand and Labele have been working on software that takes humans completely out of the loop in phishing defense by giving clicks on previously unseen domains a time out, "greylisting" them for 24 hours by default.Greylisting has been used in spam filtering for e-mails, where it deliberately delays e-mails delivered from previously unseen sources and sends temporary errors back to the sender for a few minutes or hours.Foghorn applies the same approach to unseen domain names, but it does so for a different reason: many of the domains behind phishing attacks are active for less than 24 hours before they're rotated to another domain, according to an Anti-Phishing Working Group survey.
