Saudi king to resume domestic tour amid Khashoggi fallout

Top Stories - Tue, 11/13/2018 - 09:46

Saudi King Salman will resume an unprecedented domestic tour next week, the royal court said Tuesday, as the kingdom grapples with an international crisis over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The king is now set to visit the "northern regions of the kingdom" next week to "inspect the condition of citizens and inaugurate a number of development projects", the official Saudi Press Agency said citing the royal court. SPA said the king is also set to address the Shura Council, a top advisory body, on Monday, in his first public comments since the murder of insider-turned-critic Khashoggi on October 2 in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.


Despite restrictions, digital spending hits record in US midterms

Top Stories - Tue, 11/13/2018 - 08:59

Even as online platforms tightened rules for political ads, digital spending set new records in the 2018 US midterm elections and appears poised for further growth in 2020. Digital media campaign spending rose 2,400 percent from the 2014 midterms to $1.8 billion, roughly 20 percent of the total $8.9 billion in ad spending, according to preliminary estimates from the research firm Borrell Associates. Online spending, much of it on social networks like Facebook, has been a significant factor in campaigns for a decade, but tighter rules imposed by digital giants in the wake of the 2016 election could have curbed some of that growth.

Which backup method should you use for making constant archives of your data?

Macworld - Tue, 11/13/2018 - 08:00

You've probably heard it dozens and dozens of times: It's important to back up your data. Apple has Time Machine to help you get on a regular backup routine, but are there other methods you should be using?

Different backup methods use different frequencies by which they push updates to an archive. When evaluating these methods, ask yourself: How many copies are made? How and where is the data stored? How securely is data locked away, both physically and with encryption? And, often the most important, how recent?

Here are a few popular methods for consumer backups

  • File synchronization services: These services, including Dropbox, typically monitor particular designated areas of your Mac's storage device and update changes immediately.
  • Local backup software: Apps like Time Machine perform backups on a regular interval, which can sometimes be selected.
  • Internet-hosted backup services: Services such as Backblaze can perform continuous backups, but may not be as up to date as a syncing service.

Why do these backup methods act so differently? It has to do with the computational effort to index files without burning up so many CPU cycles that your system slows down.

Indonesia says situation facing crew of doomed Lion Air jet not in flight manual

Top Stories - Tue, 11/13/2018 - 00:06

The comments shed further light on the areas under scrutiny as investigators prepare to publish their preliminary report on Nov. 28 or 29, one month after the Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX dived into the Java Sea, killing all 189 on board. Now the investigation's focus appears to be expanding to the clarity of U.S.-approved procedures to help pilots prevent the 737 MAX over-reacting to such a data loss, and methods for training them. Dennis Tajer, a 737 captain and spokesman for Allied Pilots Association (APA), which represents American Airlines Group Inc pilots, said his union was informed after the crash about a new system Boeing had installed on 737 MAX jets that could command the plane's nose down in certain situations to prevent a stall.

Exclusive: Britain's Hunt sees prospect for Yemen talks, news on Khashoggi inquiry

Top Stories - Mon, 11/12/2018 - 19:39

Following meetings in Riyadh with the Saudi king and crown prince - the main proponent of Saudi military intervention in Yemen - Hunt also said he anticipated "rapid progress" in bringing to justice those responsible for last month's murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "I was led to believe that certainly the legal processes are going to be starting very soon indeed and we should hear something about that quite shortly," Hunt told Reuters in an interview. Hunt's trip, which included a meeting in the United Arab Emirates with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, comes as Riyadh, already under scrutiny for civilian deaths in Yemen air strikes, is facing global criticism and potential sanctions over Khashoggi's killing inside its Istanbul consulate on Oct. 2.


Second migrant caravan arrives to Mexico City

Top Stories - Mon, 11/12/2018 - 18:49

By Luis Carlos Rodríguez Mexico, Nov. 12 (Notimex).- The second caravan of Central American migrants arrived at Mexico City this afternoon and went to Deportiva Magdalena Mixhuca, where everything is ready to receive them in a hostel operated by capital authorities and non-governmental organizations . Around one thousand 200 migrants, mostly Salvadorans, make up this contingent, where young people, women and minors stand out, who arrived tired after a trip of two to four hours from the city of Puebla. Visibly tired, some with a cold due to the cold temperatures in the area of ​​Rio Frio, but with the intention of reaching Mexico City, the Central Americans were received with hot food and medical services provided by various authorities such as the Iztacalco mayor's office. Denise, a 28-year-old Salvadoran who travels with her two children aged seven and four, said that while the trip was made by bus from Puebla, the children are already very tired from the journey they started almost three weeks ago from San Savior. "The children are not sick, but they are very exhausted from the days when they walk or sleep on the floor. We hope that here in the capital we can rest a bit to continue towards the United States, " she said in an interview. Jair, a 19-year-old Guatemalan, commented that if he found any work option in Mexico City, he could stay and live here. "My destiny was the United States, but as things are now on the border, if there is work here, I stay a few months and then continue to the border," he added. In the Magdalena Mixhuca, in a large white tent, hundreds of Central American migrants began to enter to rest from this trip from the capital of Puebla. Immediately, staff from various agencies such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and non-governmental organizations, began with advice to explain their immigration status and legal options to remain in the country.
