Philadelphia Flyers 1 2 Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins won against the Philadelphia Flyers at Boston’s historic Fenway Park becoming the first home team to win the NHL Winter Classic in front of a crowd of 38,112 Friday.

Before the game began, a ceremonial face-off took place between Bruins’ legend Bobby Orr and Flyers’ legend Bobby Clarke who represented their respective teams as honorary captains.

The first period went by with both teams tied scoreless at 0-0. However, fists went flying, in the first ever Winter Classic fight, between the Bruins’ Shawn Thornton and the Flyers’ Daniel Carcillo, who was looking to fight. Thornton said of the fight, “It wasn’t about that. He was out there and asked a couple guys. I don’t think it’s anybody else’s job to do that. There’s nobody on the team that has the same role as me. So I went and obliged.”

Thornton added, “Yeah, first one ever, I guess. You’ve been reminding me about it for the last six months. It happened. Now it’s over and we can stop talking about it.”

Then at 4:42 in the second period, Danny Syvret, gave the Flyers their first point in what was Syvret’s first goal of his NHL career. The game went in the third period with the Flyers leading, 1-0.

However, the Bruins made a comeback in the third period on a power play, when former Flyer Mark Reechi tied the game 1-1 with 2:18 left in the period. The game went into “extra innings” at Fenway with both teams battling back forth until the very end with the Bruins’ Marco Sturm gained control of the puck from the Flyers’ Matt Carle hitting the puck to fellow teammate Patrice Bergeron.

Bergeron gained control of the puck and turned it to pass to Sturm who read Bergeron’s movement. Sturm tipped the puck into net, winning the game for the Bruins at 3:03 in overtime driving the crowd in Fenway wild as the team swarmed Sturm to congratulate him.

Bruins’ goalie Tim Thomas also achieved a dream of his as after the game concluded the United States men’s national ice hockey team announced it’s roster for the 2010 Winter Olympics which included the goalie. The team will play at 2010 Winter Olympics next month in Vancouver, British Columbia.

However, the rink in Fenway won’t come down just yet, Yesterday at 2PM EDT, the Bruins held the AT&T Legends Classic where former Bruins legends such as Cam Neely and Terry O’Reilly and current Bruins’ coach Claude Julien were joined by celebrities such as Worcester, Massachusetts native actor and comedian Denis Leary, along with Kiefer Sutherland and film director Bobby Farrelly with groups facing off in two teams. The game was held despite the snow which has been forecast for the Boston area.

Then, on January 8th, a double NCAA college hockey doubleheader will take place at Fenway Park as the women’s ice hockey teams of the University of New Hampshire Wildcats and Northeastern University Huskies in the first ever outdoor women’s ice hockey game.

After that game ends, the infamous Green Line Rivalry will come to Fenway as long-time rivals, the 2008 NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Champions Boston College Eagles take on the 2009 champions, the Boston University Terriers.

TV Penetration In Markets

Directv programming and service are superior to Dish Network, Cox Communications, Time Warner, Charter Communications, Cable Vision all the other cable television providers. With nine successful seasons to its credit, The X-Files is one of the longest-running sci-fi series in television history…The X-Files follows the exploits of four FBI agents assigned to investigate a series of unsolved and mysterious cases known only as “The X-Files”. Now you find television programs advertising the benefits of investing on a home.

This was first used in television cameras in the large television studios. Advertising in papers and magazines, television, radio and Internet must be planned with great care based on assumption or surveys of your penetration in markets of different segment of population. Put the same time into investigating these companies as you do when you go to purchase a new television, it’s only for your protection.

He landed small roles in seven television shows, making a living by being a busboy. There aren’t any plots to reality television shows, regardless of what networks would like you to believe. High definition television programming from Direct TV provides coverage of a variety of topics including the sports and movies that lend themselves to high definition so well, but also a variety of more nationwide network programming, news, special events and much more.

Dish TV puts the owner in control over what, when, and how television is viewed in the privacy of their home. For everyone who downplays the power of this value (soft-skill) training, we have seen the ROI a thousand times over on our televisions over the past several years. For example, Alex noted that his view of America centered on the portrayal of America on television”s “The Simpsons”.

Within a minute, the television commentator said so. Watch Television. I have never been to see this amazing Museum which is reputed to have 120, 000 television and radio programs including news broadcasts and achieves of both aired and unaired sitcoms and commercials.

Work with parents to encourage decreasing the time spent on video games and television with more time allocated to reading and participation in projects, whether school or community. Airbrush makeup is the choice of most professional television makeup artists. However, as most adults will want programming beyond the child focused offerings, satellite television and cable providers have offered parental controls for a number of years.

Total Choice has all of the mainstream channels that have become America’s favorite source of television programming over the years, but with the addition of your local television channels. You know how much that probably cost him to put an ad on television and to run it over and over again. The problem is that traditional brand people too often do not integrate technology properly into their marketing approach – usually because they don’t understand the Internet but they do understand newspapers, television and radio.

Here we sit, derrire molded to its favorite bunker, out of harm’s way, with the television doing it’s damnedest to pry our conscience out of its liberal or conservative points of views. You can use the Windows Media Center Edition PC on your Xbox 360 to stream HD television and movies. And advertisers make it their business to know that by sponsoring a pro angler they guarantee exposure for their business in multiple venues: on television, in magazines and newspapers, on the Internet, at outdoor expos, etc.

Entertainment valuate whether you really need cable television, or whether it would be more cost effective to rent a movie every now and then. The popularity of dish TV has grown as the multitude of television stations available and the technology of the equipment has resulted in more stations and smaller dishes. So again is hard to compare DLP television to plasma on this topic because both technologies have great reviews regarding the clarity.

It was only recently, that I actually turned on the television and by chance this movie was on. Television keeps us sane – or does it. Although he was gaining some “notoriety” in three southern states and had connected with a local Louisiana television show, he did have one try at the county music “big time” on the Grand Ole’ Oprey and was told “never to come back.

I am confident that in just a few years, you won’t need to visit the Museum of Television and Radio to have access to such a vast array of history and popular culture in video form: it will all be available online.

“Junk” foods may affect aggressive behaviour and school performance

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Tuesday, October 4, 2005

Dr. Stephen Schoenthaler, a Professor of Criminal Justice at the California State University in Stanislaus, has long argued that there is a link between a healthy diet and decreased aggressive behaviour, as well as with increased IQ and school performance.

Dr. Schoenthaler is well-known for a youth detention center study where violations of house rules fell by 37% when vending machines were removed and the cafeteria replaced canned food by fresh alternatives. He summarizes his findings by saying that “Having a bad diet right now is a better predictor of future violence than past violent behaviour.” In a very large test, Schoenthaler directed a study in meals at 803 New York City schools, in low-income neighbourhoods, finding that the number of students passing final exams increased by 16%.

Critics have questioned some of Dr. Schoenthaler findings, due to the lack of placebo control groups. However, more recent work by Dr. Bernard Gesch, a physiologist at the University of Oxford, has placed some of the work on a more scientific footing. Dr. Gesch found that nutrition supplements produced a 26% drop in violations of prison rules over a placebo, and a 37% decrease in violent offences. The Netherlands has embarked on a wider scale dietary research program in 14 prisons.

The short term behaviour consequences of ingesting sugar are well understood: an initial burst on energy, followed a sugar low in which your body produces adrenalin, which makes you irritable and explosive. However, Schoenthaler and Gesch suggest that there are long term impacts over and above the short term consequences of blood sugar variations.

Predictable random number generator discovered in the Debian version of OpenSSL

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Friday, May 16, 2008

A major security hole was discovered in the pseudo-random number generator (PRNG) of the Debian version of OpenSSL. OpenSSL is one of the most used cryptographic software, that allows the creation of secure network connections with the protocols called SSL and TLS. It is included in many popular computer programs, like the Mozilla Firefox web browser and the Apache web server. Debian is one of the most used GNU/Linux distributions, on which are based other distributions, like Ubuntu and Knoppix. The problem affects all the Debian-based distributions that were used to create cryptographic keys since the September 17, 2006. The bug was discovered by Luciano Bello, an argentine Debian package maintainer, and was announced on May 13, 2008.

This vulnerability was caused by the removal of two lines of code from the original version of the OpenSSL library. These lines were used to gather some entropy data by the library, needed to seed the PRNG used to create private keys, on which the secure connections are based. Without this entropy, the only dynamic data used was the PID of the software. Under Linux the PID can be a number between 1 and 32,768, that is a too small range of values if used to seed the PRNG and will cause the generation of predictable numbers. Therefore any key generated can be predictable, with only 32,767 possible keys for a given architecture and key length, and the secrecy of the network connections created with those keys is fully compromised.

These lines were removed as “suggested” by two audit tools (Valgrind and Purify) used to find vulnerabilities in the software distributed by Debian. These tools warned the Debian maintainers that some data was used before its initialization, that normally can lead to a security bug, but this time it was not the case, as the OpenSSL developers wrote on March 13, 2003. Anyway this change was erroneously applied on September 17, 2006, when the OpenSSL Debian version 0.9.8c-1 was released to the public.

Even though the Debian maintainer responsible for this software released a patch to fix this bug on May 8, 2008, the impact may be severe. In fact OpenSSL is commonly used in software to protect the passwords, to offer privacy and security. Any private key created with this version of OpenSSL is weak and must be replaced, included the session keys that are created and used only temporary. This means that any data encrypted with these keys can be decrypted without a big deal, even if these keys are used (but not created) with a version of the library not affected, like the ones included in other operating systems.

For example any web server running under any operating system may use a weak key created on a vulnerable Debian-based system. Any encrypted connection (HTTPS) to this web server established by any browser can be decrypted. This may be a serious problem for sites that requires a secure connection, like banks or private web sites. Also, if some encrypted connection was recorded in the past, it can be decrypted in the same way.

Another serious problem is for the network security software, like OpenSSH and OpenVPN, that are used to encrypt the traffic to protect passwords and grant the access to an administrative console or a private network protected by firewalls. This may allows hackers to gain unwanted access to private computers, networks or data traveled over the network, even if a not affected version of OpenSSL was used.

The same behavior can be applied to any software or protocol that use SSL, like POP3S, SSMTP, FTPS, if used with a weak key. This is the case of Tor, software used to offer strong anonymity on the TCP/IP, where about 300 of 1,500-2,000 nodes used a weak key. With 15-20% of weak Tor nodes, there is a probability of 0.34-0.8% circa to build a circuit that has all tree nodes weak, resulting in a full loss of anonymity. Also the case of only one weak node begin used may facilitate some types of attack to the anonymity. The Tor hidden services, a sort of anonymous public servers, are affected too. However the issue was speedly addressed on May 14, 2008.

The same problem also interested anonymous remailers like Mixmaster and Mixminion, that use OpenSSL to create the remailer keys for the servers and the nym keys for the clients. Although currently there is no official announcement, at least two remailer changed their keys because were weak.

Internet Dating Deceptions And Reverse Email Search

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

By Ed Opperman

If you have ever joined an online dating service and exchanged emails with potential dates, you probably wished there was a way to do a reverse email search to determine in they are who they say they are. Well now you can and even a whole lot more. In fact not only can you verify their information with a reverse email search you can also find out what other dating sites they belong to. What porn sites they visit, if they are a swinger and if they frequent escort services.

Amazing isn’t it. But that’s what you can uncover out on the information superhighway.

Online dating services are a great way to meet new people. You can search ads based on hair color,religion,height, weight or distance. You can chose an ad that appeals to you and make contact without fear of rejection. But Internet dating sites are also fertile hunting grounds for predators seeking out new victims. Con men, sexual deviates, drug users and those prone to violence all use online personal ads to lure in their unsuspecting targets.

There are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself so you can safely enjoy online dating services.

1. Never reveal your personal information to strangers. Until you check them out.

2. Do professional reverse email search to verify their information.Verify their real name address, phone number, place of employment.

3. Do a Dating Service Assessment to see which other dating sites they have memberships. Find out if they are on any strange or unusual fetish websites.

4. Do a full background check.

5. Loacte their secret email accounts, secret web sites, and social networking sites like Myspace.

With so many services at your disposal it would be awful to waste time with frogs leaving your prince lost in the crowd. With the right investigation services available on the Internet you can cut out the losers, perverts, criminals and abusers and focus on a winner. Someone that’s worth your time.

While we all agree its smarter to be safe than sorry and foolish to meet with strangers. We can also agree that it’s a waste of time dating losers or perverts. The only question is how to go about weeding out the undesirables?

On the Internet you can find services that can do a background report and a reverse email search. But when it comes to serious online investigations and dating service assessments you need a professional that is recognized as an exert in email tracing and Internet infidelity investigations.

Before you hire an investigator make sure to check them out. Google the company name to check if they are considered an expert in these services.

Last check out the pricing and turn around times for the results. Are they competitive? Beware of companies that are too cheap and offer “instant” searches. This information will almost always be inaccurate and out dated. Be leery if you see a site offering “unlimited” searches for one low price. If it looks too good to be true it usually is.

NASA prepares to launch mission to nearby asteroids

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

NASA is beginning the final preparations for next Wednesday’s launch of the Dawn probe, aboard a Delta II rocket. The Dawn probe, costing over US$250 million, will visit the dwarf planet Ceres and the asteroid Vesta. The launch was originally planned for mid-June, however due to a damaged crate, shipping delays, and a damaged solar panel, NASA chose to delay it until now. Last week the spacecraft was delivered to the launch pad, and engineers performed tests to ensure that it is ready for launch. Today, the payload fairings were installed, and the probe is ready for its launch next week onto its 5 billion kilometer (3.2 billion mile) mission.

As the Delta II launches, three stages of rockets will propel the probe towards its first target. With the help of ion thrusters, it will reach Mars in mid-2009. Using Mars’ gravity, the probe will speed up and proceed towards the first asteroid, Vesta, in late 2011. After orbiting for seven months, it will leave Vesta in mid-2012, and arrive at Ceres in 2015. After making scans of Ceres, it will enter an orbit around Ceres that will ensure that it does not impact the asteroid for half a century. This is required due to the United Nations’ “Outer Space Treaty”, which states that “harmful contamination” of these asteroids must be avoided.

The targets of this mission, Ceres and Vesta, couldn’t be less alike. Ceres (diameter 975 km, 600 miles) is larger than Vesta (578 km, 350 miles). This makes Ceres approximately the size of Texas. NASA believes Ceres could contain water beneath its outer crust because, like Earth, its inner layers are heavier than the outer layers, and Ceres’ outer layer is lighter than water. Vesta, on the other hand, is the size of Arizona, and has a surface of volcanic rock, which astronomers believe came from its hot inner layers. Vesta also has a large crater – almost 500 km (300 miles) across – on its southern pole. The collision that caused this likely blasted enough rock into space to fill a container 160 by 160 by 80 km (100 by 100 by 50 miles).

The probe will make several observations of these asteroids: it will compare the makeup, shape, size, and densities, analyze craters, and determine mass, gravity, rotation. To determine the makeup, the probe carries a mapping spectrometer, and tools to map emissions of neutrons and gamma rays. Using this information, NASA can compare the formation of these bodies to learn more about our solar system, for example, to test a theory which states that a number of stony meteorites may be debris from Vesta.

There’s one more piece of equipment aboard the probe: A small silicon chip containing the names of 350,000 people who submitted their names to the “Send Your Name to the Asteroid Belt” campaign. After next week’s launch, the spacecraft will deploy its solar panels and undergo two months of testing before it begins the cruise to Mars.

Elephants Dream: Free content 3D film released to the Internet

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Friday, May 19, 2006

The 3D animated short film Elephants Dream, formerly known as Project Orange, was released to the Internet yesterday. The film is available under the Creative Commons Attribution License, allowing anyone to download, modify and distribute it. The 10-minute film has been called “the first open source movie” by NewsForge. Not only is the movie itself free content, even the computer files containing the 3D models used in the film are available under the same terms.

The project was first announced one year ago and was jointly produced by the Blender Foundation and the Netherlands Media Art Institute. The film tells the story of Emo and Proog, two men trapped inside a surreal machine world. Only freely available open source software was used to create the movie. Most of the work was done using Blender, a 3D modelling and rendering tool. The Blender Foundation is selling an extended edition on DVD, which includes subtitles in 34 languages, a Making Of documentary, commentary tracks, and all files used to create the movie.

In spite of the successful completion of the project, the Blender Foundation “has no intention to grow or expand into a company or studio” according to the project website. “Instead, the Foundation aims at endorsing and supporting activities within (educational) institutes, universities and companies.”

Advantages Of Opting For Dental Implants In Pune}

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Submitted by: Kishor Harale

Today, dental implants are emerging as one of the most sought after treatment options for thousands of people who have damaged their dental structure in accidents and related mishaps. But, why are dental implants so popular? What is so good about these implants that make them a preferred choice for thousands of patients across the country. At Smilex Dental clinic, one of the best hospitals for Root Canal Treatment in Pune, the doctors specialize in several types of dental restoration techniques including implants. Here again the expert team of doctors confirms the growing awareness about dental implants procedures and an increasing number of patients coming forth to opt for this line of treatments as well.

Well, the reason for this increased preference is clear. People have acknowledged the benefits of dental implants. After all, a well-fitted implant is a permanent solution as opposed to a temporary set of dentures, isn’t it?

For those who are yet to be convinced, let’s take a look at the advantages:

A better appearance: When you are living with dentures, it tends to affect your overall appearance as well. This is because dentures are not permanent. When you remove them, the empty oral cavity tends to affect the facial expressions to quite an extent. However, in case of a dental implant, the teeth or tooth fitted is a permanent solution.

It looks realistic: Artificial teeth or dental implants are not natural and so they will not look natural as well. The stark difference in colour will make it easy for people to spot them. However, dental implants are natural. Once fitted they look as good as the real teeth and make it impossible for the onlookers to spot the difference.

Durability is the key: With dentures, patients have to compulsorily replace their teeth once in every five to ten years. But, dental implants are far more durable. Rarely do patients need a full replacement. Periodic replacements are sufficient for the patients to live healthily.

Protects the oral cavity: Using artificial teeth means that you are actually exposing the gums and bones, each time you remove the denture. But with dental implants, this risk is eliminated. Your teeth are no longer exposed to such unnecessary dangers.

No cavities: With dental implants, there is no fear of the patient developing cavities that may require individual treatment.

No threat of slipping away: For people relying on dentures, there is always a fear of the dentures slipping away right in the middle of a conversation. However, with dental implants this threat becomes non-existent. The implant is fitted as a permanent solution so you don’t have to worry about things slipping away and causing any embarrassment.

More comfort: Dental implants are more comfortable as compared to the dentures. You wear them throughout without any pain or pressure in the gums.

These advantages make it a preferred choice for people looking to repair their dental cavity.Here again the expert team of doctors confirms the growing awareness about dental implants procedures and an increasing number of patients coming forth to opt for this line of treatments as well.

Somali piracy: Kenyan navy kills three, Chinese ship hijacked, British couple freed

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Monday, November 15, 2010

Three pirates were killed late Friday during a presumed attack in error, while other pirates successfully hijacked the Yuan Xiang, a Panamanian-flagged vessel with an all-Chinese crew, and a media embargo was lifted regarding the release of a British couple whose yacht was seized more than a year ago over the weekend.

At 11 p.m. on Friday a Kenyan patrol vessel was near Kilifi in Kenyan coastal waters “when four suspected Somali pirates on board a speed boat climbed the vessel, mistaking it for a merchant vessel,” according to Kenyan Defence Department spokesman Bogita Ongeri. He said three were shot dead but the fourth “dived into the sea with bullet wounds during the scuffle,” and is thought to have died. The speed boat with more pirates on board fled, the three bodies were taken to Coast General Hospital, Mombassa.

Ongeri promised more details after discussions with the vessel’s captain adding, “[t]he government will not relent in its fight against piracy.” Kenya, along with the Seychelles, performs international prosecutions of pirates, but convictions are rarely secured; 26 suspects were freed last week by Kenya owing to lack of evidence or jurisdiction.

Andrew Mwangura of the Seafarers’ Assistance Program said Saturday, “I can confirm the pirates hijacked Yuan Xiang on Friday at midnight Kenyan time in the Arabian Sea near India. The vessel has 29 Chinese crew.” The Yuan Xiang was sailing outside the zone covered by a multinational task force combating piracy. Reports suggest its captors are heading to Somalia.

Retired British couple Paul and Rachel Chandler were released after their yacht Lynn Rival was captured near the Seychelles en-route to Tanzania 388 days ago, in October 2009. An injunction prevented reporting the release until 56-year-old Rachel and 60-year-old Paul, from Kent, were out of Somalia.

“Men with guns came aboard,” Paul told ITV News over the phone a week after their capture. “Then we were forced to sail … toward Somalia.” The seizure was witnessed by UK refueling ship RFA Wave Knight but they were not helped for fear their lives would be endangered. “This is not piracy and must not be reported as such,” Paul said in custody. “It is kidnapping and extortion and even torture.” It is unclear if money changed hands; US$7 million was originally demanded but UK government policy forbids ransom payments. “We’re fine,” said Paul. “We’re rather skinny and bony but we’re fine.”

New figures show 790 people have been kidnapped by Somali pirates this year, on course to beat last year’s record of 867. Of these, 435 remain hostage. Dr Alex Coutroubis and George Kiourktsoglou of London’s University of Greenwich say crews are repelling more attacks, and attackers have responded with increased violence. “As it gets harder for pirates to capture ships, the Somali gangs are more likely to fire at sailors with automatic weapons in order to force vessels to stop”. Some tankers have had rocket propelled grenades fired at them.

Last year saw 217 hijack attempts. This year, to date, 140, and 40 ships seized – versus 47 for the whole of 2009.
