Why is there no real coverage on today's massive DDoS attack?

Just wondering why there's no real coverage or conversation on today's massive DDoS attack? Having to scour the other parts of the 안전놀이터 Internet for news and updates which I would have expected The Verge to automatically and masterfully cover. #wassup

    A question was raised as to the relevance of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disclosure laws in the case of HIV-positive individuals who are taking medicine consistently, thus suppressing the virus and not making it transmissible. 온라인카지노 Timely checks are not a catch-all. First, post-exposure screenings may not accurately capture the infection given the possibility of an incubation period.  Second, there is a possible time lag between infection and the detection test. 온라인바카라 Third, the viral load factor in the infected person may fluctuate from the recent viral load test.  Given the above, the laws safeguarding otherwise innocent partners who cannot appraise the risk they are exposing themselves to, is still valid, notwithstanding the advancements made in HIV treatment.   Care must be exercised by individuals with HIV infection, 카지노사이트주소 and they have a duty to offer their partners a fair basis to exercise judgment on whether to participate in activities that will markedly place them at a heightened risk of exposure. Therefore, such disclosure laws should continue to be in place.

    The late president S R Nathan made wild birds feel at home in the Istana, and ensured that hornbills had adequate food and shelter so that they would breed there. 바카라사이트주소 Heartened by Mr Nathan, private citizens with the means to do so and with support from people involved in the Istana project emulated his example, thereby encouraging hornbills and other desirable birds, once scarce in Singapore, to re-establish themselves. Yet, Mr Prabakharan supports prohibiting the feeding of wildlife. This will discourage nature lovers from actively attracting songbirds to their gardens.  While he admits that bird-feeding stations are frequently set up to see birds through the winters in temperate countries, he is incorrect to claim that in Singapore there is an abundance of food all year round. 카지노사이트주소 For local songbird species, breeding is dependent on the supply of food. During the dry season mid-year, breeding activity drops off. But if food is provided, breeding continues throughout the year.   His statement that the feeding of wildlife by untrained individuals would often do more harm than good is unsubstantiated and supercilious. Many desirable bird species are quite adaptable as far as diet is concerned. It is inaccurate for him to claim that what is used in bird feeders is nutritionally inadequate. Very reliable and well-researched products are readily available in Singapore. Pet birds grow, sing and breed on these diets. Wild birds will flourish just as well. His mention that the feeding of "wild" pigeons caused them to procreate and become pests is irrelevant to the subject of wildlife. The pest pigeons are not truly wild but are domestic stock that has gone feral. I will support steps the authorities take to humanely remove them. 안전놀이터 Mr Prabakharan's position that we should keep our distance from wildlife and that nature appreciation can be achieved by visiting parks and nature reserves is too extreme a stand.

     am delighted that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) is putting more enforcement personnel to tackle and mitigate the dangers posed by personal mobility devices. 온라인카지노 The report on errant e-scooter rider Derrick Gan Zhong Kang exposed his misdeeds and the penalty imposed as a result. However, it fell short by not citing the illegality of riding pillion, as was the case here. This is one of the rules clearly set by LTA but flouted all over the island. It could very well be why the e-scooter's braking power was compromised. The extra weight from the pillion rider could have been a contributing factor. 카지노사이트 The other area of concern is the speed limits of PMDs on pedestrian and shared paths. Such paths currently provide no protection to pedestrians from errant riders. As such, the speed limit on shared paths should be brought down from a maximum of 25kmh to 15kmh. Near accidents are common and continue to be a menace. This is especially so at zebra crossings or traffic junctions where pedestrians and mobility devices jostle for space. 온라인바카라   LTA's efforts in instilling safe riding habits and improving infrastructure to support the growing cyclist population are commendable, and I hope with new resources in place, it can do more in the area of enforcement.

    Ms June Yong Chung Mee calls for parents to interact more with their children and model the behaviour they want to see in their children, instead of filling their time with enrichment classes. 온라인바카라 Ideally, parents should be the ones to impart values to children. In reality, however, this is not always possible. Besides, most children also go through a stage of rebellion or self-assertion, of wanting to break free from parental control. Time spent in tuition or enrichment classes may actually keep some children off the streets and prevent them from turning wayward. In the past, mothers stayed home to raise children while fathers were the sole breadwinners. 카지노사이트주소 This is often not the case today. Whether out of necessity or choice, many mothers today work and children are left to their own devices for many hours in a day.   The chances of succumbing to the lure of the latest gadgets and meeting unsavoury characters online are high. Time spent in tuition classes, though pressurising or stressful, may be the lesser of two evils. Tuition classes do instil social skills in students as they learn in small groups. And I have come across tutors who inspire their students to reach for greater heights, and to never give up Students learn to persevere and be resilient too. These tutors also tell students that failures are stepping stones to success and instil feelings of self-worth. Every child has his own stress-tolerance level. Some actually thrive on some amount of pressure. Perhaps parents can allow some leeway for their children to decide if they wish to attend additional enrichment classes, depending on their interests and schedules. 바카라사이트주소 The adage, everything in moderation, applies here too. Let moderation be the key consideration when parents sign their children up for extra lessons.

    It should not come as a surprise that many SingPass users have not changed their unique online IDs from their NRIC numbers. 인터넷바카라 The availability of the option for SingPass users to use non-NRIC details as their SingPass IDs was probably lost on the public because it was implemented with other enhanced security measures such as SingPass two-factor authentication (2FA). The emphasis then was to get everybody to sign up for the 2FA token. 카지노사이트 The SingPass log-in page also does not help. There is nothing on the page to indicate that you can change the SingPass ID. A message could have been inserted to tell users that they can change their SingPass ID, along with a link to the page to do so. 온라인카지노    Changing the SingPass ID requires one. Nobody does that. Each time we go to a site which requires SingPass authentication, we see only the SingPass log-in page and not the other pages on the SingPass site. Even when you log in to the site, the link to change the SingPass ID is buried and is not so obvious. If the authorities want people to change their SingPass ID, then they should make this change easier and more obvious.

    Two years ago, when I noticed the plight of displaced workers, I started a social enterprise of my own. 안전놀이터 Today, this commercial cleaning business works with more than 50 voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs) to support workers from various disadvantaged backgrounds, including persons with disabilities, single parents, former offenders and more. In building the company, I have come to see that social enterprises can do more good for themselves and the social causes they champion by venturing out of their silos to collaborate with peers and counterparts. 바카라사이트 Furthermore, as businesses with unique needs and challenges, we naturally understand each other. The social service sector in Singapore has admirable initiatives in place to provide as much support as possible to enterprises. The Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise has systems in place to mentor and guide social enterprises, while the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre's Company of Good programmes actively connect like-minded business leaders. 인터넷카지노   The many VWOs and social workers under them must also be acknowledged for their tireless efforts in helping their respective beneficiaries. The more we reach out to our sector partners, the more we will realise that we are all working towards the same goal of building a stronger and more caring society.

    The debate over ministers' pay has ruffled the feathers of many as it seems to equate pay with talent. Many have pointed out that this is a flawed benchmark. 온라인바카라 In modern Singapore, where many are trying to cope with the rising cost of living, the linking of pay with talent is a tinderbox issue, especially if it concerns politicians who are public servants entrusted to serve the people. How will someone earning a million dollars understand those who are struggling to make a living? 카지노사이트주소 Like it or not, many are likely to react with scepticism and will sense a disconnect when someone living in a bungalow says he is trying to understand those living in a one-room rental unit. Only those with a passion to serve will understand.   Also, does a good politician with the talent and passion to serve have to come from among those earning millions in the private sector? 바카라사이트주소 Education Minister Ong Ye Kung once pointed out that our future prime minister need not necessarily be a graduate. We have to accept the fact that those who want to serve may not be top earners from the private sector, and millionaires may not necessarily be equipped with the attributes to serve the people.

    China is generally rational in its geopolitical actions. Yet, its defence of the "nine-dash-line" in the South China Sea seems uncannily emotion-driven and goes against its larger global interests. 인터넷바카라 Is defending it really the "core interest" of China in South-east Asia? Or, is the continued success of Asean as a regional pact promoting the culture of peace and prosperity in the broader region more aligned to China's core interest in South-east Asia? South-east Asia becoming a troubled region like the Middle East should be a greater concern actually. 카지노사이트 In fact, there was a time when China was very generous towards Asean - it proposed a free trade agreement with Asean, motivating other powers to follow suit.   Ditto with its aid and infrastructure enhancement programmes towards Asean. There were massive reservoirs of goodwill towards China then; they must not dry up now. Taking steps to de-escalate the tension surrounding the South China Sea dispute will be a form of generosity China can show, it being a major claimant. 온라인카지노 Asean will respond positively, most believe, not least by continuing to be a catalyst for peace in the region. Deng Xiaoping was right when he said the problem of territorial disputes should be passed to future generations. China still needs a few decades to become a modern developed power. Meanwhile, it makes more pragmatic sense to strengthen the catalyst for its development, which is Asean for now, not weaken it.

    I am a senior citizen writing in to highlight the boorish behaviour of some senior citizens in our midst. 바카라사이트주소 I witnessed a male senior citizen demanding that a young woman give up her seat in the MRT for him. She was not even sitting on the reserved seat. But, he scolded her in front of everyone, saying she ought to give up her seat for an elderly person. 안전놀이터 She did do it, but she was not happy about it. In another instance, I was at a National Day carnival singing our National Anthem when an elderly woman tapped my arm and indicated grumpily that she wanted me to move aside for her to walk through. Earlier on, I had seen another elderly woman jump a queue. 인터넷카지노   Having a sense of entitlement and throwing one's weight around just because one is a senior is not good or wise behaviour. I hope the guilty seniors will reflect on this and change for the better.

    I cannot agree more with Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong that Singapore will pay the price of not being able to attract people of the right calibre if ministers' salaries are cut. 온라인카지노 It is easy for disaffected Singaporeans to target ministers' salaries as a convenient punching bag . However, what Singaporeans should focus on is not the quantum of a political office-holder's salary. Whether a minister makes $1 million, $2 million or $3 million per year, it makes little difference to the taxpayer in absolute terms. 카지노사이트주소  Even if all the political office-holders take a 50 per cent pay cut, it is unlikely that this would contribute significantly to our annual Budget. Instead of begrudging ministers their salaries or suggesting that their salaries be diverted for other social spending, the outcome indicators that taxpayers should look at include:   • Have our lives improved over the years? Is our society equitable and fair?  •Does the Government offer "value for money" for taxes paid? 온라인바카라 • Are there other governments which pay themselves an uncompetitive salary that deliver the standard of living we enjoy at our tax rate, which we can emulate? While the Government is far from perfect, reducing ministers' pay is not the right solution.

    I AM saddened that the Little India riot on Sunday has attracted so much attention worldwide (“Foreign media shocked, notes rising tensions here”; Tuesday). 카지노사이트주소 For more than 40 years, Singapore has been a peaceful place for people from all walks of life to live in, work and play. The latest incident does not do justice to the efforts of the Government to foster close interaction and integration between Singaporeans and foreigners. Most Singaporeans welcome foreigners to live and work here, and we expect them to adapt to our way of life. So, the culprits who caused wilful damage in Little India should be dealt with severely and all necessary measures put in place to prevent a repeat of such incidents. Singaporeans should avoid stereotyping and negative perceptions of foreigners who come to live and work among them. Rightly or wrongly, we are aware of the differences between “us” and “them”. However, “us” and “them” does not have to mean “us” versus “them”. As adults, we should be better able to deal with human diversity. 바카라사이트주소       Those opposed to immigration and the influx of foreign labour see it as legitimate to fear the economic and social costs arising from the presence of large numbers of foreigners here. While some of these perceptions may appear justifiable, we must realise that the overwhelming majority of foreigners in our midst are hard-working, peace-loving and law-abiding. Foreign workers sacrifice a lot to come here to help in our infrastructure development, giving us roads and beautiful homes. Understandably, our image as a peaceful nation has been affected by the riot. So it is imperative that we should all help in ensuring that there is no repeat.

    Over the years, the number of stray cats has declined significantly. 인터넷바카라 This is due to residents who have worked tirelessly to trap these cats for neutering. They are always on the lookout for newly abandoned cats and kittens, and they also speak to cat owners to advise them on neutering and keeping the animals indoors. 카지노사이트 Some of these residents have registered with the Cat Welfare Society so that they can help town councils mediate in cases where there are complaints about cats. Such unseen and unsung residents ought to be recognised for their community effort by the town councils. 인터넷카지노 All these residents ask for is that fellow residents be tolerant of the presence of cats, also called community cats, and that the town councils do not pander to a minority of complaining residents by culling these cats. As our little island gets rapidly concretised, such community cats add a softness to the harshness of our environment.

    My girlfriend was pretty excited that her new apartment had FiOS equipment pre-installed and has had the service for about a month. I knew that Verizon did some fairly pretty invasive stuff in terms of watching your activity while on their network, but she got a message threatening to suspend her internet if she continued to visit this website that hosts (to view but not download) videos, including copy-written content. Is there anyway around that stuff? 바카라사이트주소 Can you opt out like with some Comcast packages? Is using a VPN while she's online enough? I don't think anyone here is that into having company's monitor your browsing habits (although they all do to some extent) but I've never had AT&T or Comcast send me a notice for visiting RandomAnimeSiteC, let alone beam a threat directly into a blank tab when I open my computer. If there are any FiOS customers out there with other warnings about things you shouldn't try to do on Verizon's network, those comments would also be welcomed!

    Columnist and cookbook author Cathy Barrow and writer Kristen Hartke recently joined The Washington Post Food staff to answer questions about all things edible. Here are edited excerpts from that chat. 카지노사이트주소    Q: I have beautiful celery in my garden. What is the best way to save it for Thanksgiving stuffing? Should I dice, then freeze, or freeze the whole stalks? If diced, how best to dry it before freezing? A: Celery, because it's mostly water, doesn't like the freezer. Once the diced or whole stalks emerge from the freezer, the water is released and you're left with (very aromatic) limp bits of celery. If using the celery for soup or to scent stock, it will be useful, but if you hope for that crunch in your stuffing, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. - Cathy Barrow Q: I bought what I thought was a pint of shishito peppers at the farmers market, but now I'm thinking they're either very hot shishitos or birds eyes. I've thrown a few into my meals throughout the week, but thought I'd see what folks in here would do with a big batch of very hot peppers. A: Probably the first thing I would do is to freeze some of them, because, much as I love hot peppers, a big batch probably won't get used up that quickly. Just spread the whole peppers on a cookie sheet and they'll freeze solid, then you can pop them into a freezer-safe container and defrost and cook with them at will during the winter. You can also pickle them. - Kristen Hartke  바카라사이트주소 Q: I made a pureed sauce last night for dinner and had lots of leftover, so I decided to freeze it. However, I'm not actually sure if it's a sauce that can be frozen and then thawed to its original glory. It's basically made of pureed jalapenos, mayonnaise, sour cream, a bit of lime juice, and olive oil. I'm concerned because of the sour cream (and maybe mayonnaise?) Should I be OK, or should I just go ahead and toss it out?   A: Neither mayonnaise nor sour cream are good candidates for the freezer. A sauce made with both would keep in the refrigerator for two or three days, surely, but if you have already frozen it, I'm afraid it will need to be tossed. - C.B. Q: I'm new to lentils - after discovering and enjoying them from a restaurant, I purchased a bag (Whole Foods store brand red lentils) to add variety to my salads. The first time I cooked them, I followed the instructions on the bag precisely. They boiled over and turned to mush, so I threw them out. The second time I cooked them, I followed the instructions on a Washington Post recipe. While they didn't boil over this time, they too turned to mush. What am I doing wrong? Should I purchase a different type of lentil? Should I cook them in a much larger pan than the sauce pan I'm using? I want to be able to cook them but at this rate will never buy again. A: Red lentils . . . turn to mush! A beautiful, wonderful mush. That's pretty much the idea with them. If you want lentils that don't, you should get brown, green or black ones. - Joe Yonan Q: I want to make some sandwiches that I could take on a flight in a couple of days and I would like to avoid meat. Ideas? Should we consider a different savoury snack instead of sandwiches? A: One of my go-to traveling sandwiches is just a bunch of mixed roasted veggies (oil, garlic, salt, pepper) - in the summer I use squash and eggplant - combined with goat cheese, herbs and whatever other condiments you like. It's simple and holds pretty well. - Becky Krystal 안전놀이터 Q: I moved six years ago and there are several boxes of pasta that moved with me and remain unopened. Does pasta expire? Is it safe to eat? Will it still taste OK? A: Dried pasta can keep for a long time - it has no water content, so I wouldn't be overly concerned about it myself. If it looks or smells funny - and, again, I can't imagine why - then pitch it, but, otherwise, I suspect that it's fine. - K.H. Q: My uncle and his husband give out home canned stuff for holiday gifts. All sorts of things from apple sauce to pear butter to pickled stuff. What do I do with the jars after I eat the goodies? Should I be bringing it back to them? Recycling? I'm pretty sure you can't reuse the lids (right?) but what about the jars? A: You can reuse both jars and lids, but you can't reuse the lids for actual canning. You can reuse them as just lids, though, of course - and you can reuse the jars as storage containers for all sorts of things, but they're especially good for salad dressings. And if you do can, you can reuse the jars for that - with new lids. Having said that, if the guys do a lot of canning, they probably would appreciate having the jars back, for future projects. And yes, you can recycle them. - J.Y. Q: My husband and I each replaced the usual quart of half-and-half in our fridge at the same time. It's from a local farm, so doesn't keep as well as the usual store-bought, which is one reason we like it. How can I use up that extra quart before it turns? A: I love using it for French toast. - B.K.
