Ohio’s capital city has launched a defense fund for illegal immigrants facing deportation and thousands of taxpayer dollars will go to the local chapter of a terrorist front group that promotes itself as a Muslim civil rights organization. The pot of cash is known as Columbus Families Together Fund and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, will be among the recipients.
CAIR was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad, and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine. In 2008 CAIR was a co-conspirator in a federal terror-finance case involving the Hamas front group Holy Land Foun
A small, recently discovered asteroid -- or perhaps a comet -- appears to have originated from outside the solar system, coming from somewhere else in our galaxy. If so, it would be the first "interstellar object" to be observed and confirmed by astronomers.
This unusual object – for now designated A/2017 U1 – is less than a quarter-mile (400 meters) in diameter and is moving remarkably fast. Astronomers are urgently working to point telescopes around the world and in space at this notable object. Once these data are obtained and analyzed, astronomers may know more about the origin and possibly composition of the object.
A/2017 U1 was discovered Oct. 19 by the University of Hawaii's Pan-STARRS 1 telescope on Haleakala, Hawaii, during the course of its nightly search for near-Earth ob
In 2017, two of the largest epidemics of cryptographers have already been recorded - we are talking about the notoriously sensational WannaCry and ExPetr (also Petya and NotPetya at the same time) - and now it looks like the third one is starting. This time the cryptographer is called Bad Rabbit - at least this name is written on the page in the darknet, on which its creators send for clarifying the details.
So far, several Russian media have been affected by this encryptor, including Interfax and Fontanka . Also about the hacker attack - possibly connected with the same Bad Rabbit, - the airport of Odessa informs.
For the decryption of files, attackers require 0.05 bitokoya, which is at the current rate approximately equivalent to 283 dollars or 15 700 rubles.

The Malaysian Government has confirmed it has chosen a company to begin a new search for MH370 and is now negotiating the terms of the deal.
It has notified the families of the 239 people lost aboard MH370 that it is negotiating the terms and conditions of the search with US company Ocean Infinity.
The seabed exploration company had offered to look for the missing Boeing 777 aircraft on a no-find, no-fee basis.
MH370 disappeared over the southern Indian Ocean in March 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
The initial search of the ocean floor was suspended in January after no trace of the plane was found on the ocean floor.
Advice sent today to MH370 families states that the MH370 Response team, "received several proposals from interested parties to search for MH
The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Kansai in Osaka Prefecture has succeeded in making hens lay eggs that contain a pharmaceutical agent that can be used to treat such diseases as cancer and hepatitis, it has been learned.
The procedure uses genome editing technology to produce interferon beta, a type of protein related to the immune system, at a relatively low cost.
As early as next year, a joint research company plans to sell the drug as a research reagent at a price about half that of the conventional product. Eventually, they hope to lower the price to less than 10 percent of the current level.
Interferon beta is used in the treatment of malignant skin cancer and hepatitis, as well as for virus research.
Tropical Storm Nate has killed at least 22 people in Central America as it pummeled the region with heavy rain while heading toward Mexico's Caribbean resorts and the US Gulf Coast, where it could strike as a hurricane this weekend.
In Nicaragua, at least 11 people died on Thursday, seven others were reported missing and thousands had to evacuate homes because of flooding, said the country's vice president Rosario Murillo.
Emergency officials in Costa Rica reported that at least eight people were killed due to the lashing rain, including two children. Another 17 people were missing, while more than 7000 had to take refuge from Nate in shelters, authorities said.
Two youths also drowned in Honduras due to the sudden swell in a river, while a man was killed in a mud slide
Do you really bleed purple and black? Time to find out!
The Baltimore Ravens have been cutting edge this 2017 season. The team installed brand new technology in the stadium, released a new facial recognition app and made some upgrades to the field. But now, the organization is stepping out onto the field of genetics.
As the game day giveaway at the home opener, all fans will receive a free DNA test as they enter the stadium.
Fans who choose to participate can learn more about their genetic makeup thanks to Orig3n, the Boston-based biotech firm sponsoring the event. Fans will swab the inside of their cheek, drop the sample into a stadium bin and register with the company online.
The “test” offers “insight into your mind, body and health,” a company spokeswoman said. “This is the
Transferring information from the optical to acoustic domain and back again inside a chip is critical for the development of photonic integrated circuits: microchips that use light instead of electrons to manage data.
These chips are being developed for use in telecommunications, optical fibre networks and cloud computing data centres where traditional electronic devices are susceptible to electromagnetic interference, produce too much heat or use too much energy.
“The information in our chip in acoustic form travels at a velocity five orders of magnitude slower than in the optical domain,” said Dr Birgit Stiller, research fellow at the University of Sydney and supervisor of the project.
“It is like the difference between thunder and lightning,” she said.
Greg Abbott, 20 year veteran of the Cobb County Police Department of the West Georgia region, was officially fired late Thursday afternoon due to a comment that he made during a routine traffic stop.
Abbott asked a passenger of the vehicle to why they refused to lower their hands during the stop and was answered with, "...I've seen too many videos of people of people killing people." He answered, with, "but you're not black. Remember, we only kill black people. Yeah. We only kill black people, right?"
More details will be posted when they are available.
