‘They’re watching us!’ China surveillance ship ‘listening in’, says Australian deputy PM

‘They’re watching us!’ China surveillance ship ‘listening in’, says Australian deputy PM

Speaking on Sydney radio station 2GB, Barnaby Joyce, the Australian Deputy Prime Minister, claimed the Chinese ship was doing more than just observing the military drill.

“We can’t do anything about (the ship in Queensland), quite frankly,” he said.

“They can sit in international waters and do their job.”

Mr Joyce alleged: “But that’s one section of the listening and there are other sections where they try to hack in.

“They have computers that will basically try and break into our computers and into our secret areas and communication networks.

“But (you have to ask) what is interesting about Australia? It’s your iron ore, your gas, your vital agricultural exports and your alliances and how close your platform is with the United States.

“(China wants to learn) how well your platforms work together in comparison to their platforms and their military.”

The Chinese vessel is entitled to operate in the area as it is not performing any economic activity.

“Of course we’re watching them,” he said. “And they’re watching us.

“The law of the sea says we can be up in the South China Sea.

“And so we simply say that we think the same tolerances and the same appreciation of those international laws should apply.”

Black Widow free stream warning: Watching Marvel movie online could be very costly

Black Widow free stream warning: Watching Marvel movie online could be very costly

Anyone thinking of trying to watch the latest blockbuster Marvel movie online for free might want to think again. The hotly anticipated Black Widow film, starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh, has just been released in cinemas and via Premier Access on Disney+ but fans are being warned of the dangers of attempting to watch this latest addition to the Avengers franchise without paying for the privilege.

Hackers are clearly aware of the huge interest in this must-see movie and are now trying to cash in via those attempting to watch the film for free. According to the security experts at Kaspersky, there has been a surge in scams around the Black Widow film with some using fake sites to spread malware whilst others try and trick fans into handing over credit card details with the promise of a cheaper way to view the blockbuster.

“We have observed intensified scamming activities around ‘Black Widow,’ the release of which fans all over the world have been eagerly anticipating for a long time. In their excitement to watch the long-awaited movie, viewers have become inattentive to the sources they use, and this is exactly what fraudsters benefit from. These attacks are preventable, and users should be alert to the sites they visit,” said Kaspersky security expert Anton V. Ivanov.

Kaspersky says that one of the most common tactics used by cyber thieves is to show a few minutes of the movie before it suddenly stops. Users are then asked to register and hand over bank details and home addresses to watch the rest of the action. However, once they hit the register button the movie doesn’t play and they are left with a very costly mistake as hackers can use the credentials to make online purchases.

Hackers are also trying to infect PCs with malware via fake downloads of the film and some are using forged websites that look like the official movie page in an attempt to steal personal data.

Anyone trying to search for ways to watch Black Widow for free online should be aware that there’s a high chance they’ll encounter some form of scam.

“You may encounter a site that will show you the first couple minutes of the film and then ask you to enter your full name, address and credit card number to continue watching. It goes without saying that you should absolutely not do this,” said Attila Tomaschek, Digital Privacy Expert at ProPrivacy.

“All of this information goes directly to the scammer and is exactly the type of information criminals need to engage in credit card fraud and identity theft, you also won’t be able to watch the rest of the movie after you’ve given them your details.

If you want to ensure you’re completely safe from the Black Widow scam, it’s probably best to either book tickets to a cinema or subscribe to Disney+ to stream it safely at home.”

Black Widow: Which Roger Moore James Bond movie was Natasha watching and why?

Black Widow: Which Roger Moore James Bond movie was Natasha watching and why?

After over a year’s delay, Black Widow finally stormed cinemas on Wednesday ahead of its Disney+ Premier Access launch today. Scarlett Johansson’s MCU solo movie is set in 2016 right after the events of Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers Infinity War. And early on in the blockbuster, she spends her downtime watching a Roger Moore James Bond movie.

The 007 film in question was 1979’s Moonraker, in which Moore’s Bond goes to Outer Space.

But why exactly was Natasha watching the marmite movie, which the Avenger clearly knows well as she was seen reciting the dialogue?

Well, Black Widow director Cate Shortland weighed in on this decision during a recent interview.

Speaking with Uproxx, the filmmaker said: “You know, we debated which [Bond] film.”

Black Widow is the first MCU movie in two years and will be followed by three more in 2021.

Next up is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on September 3.

This will be followed by Eternals on November 5 and Spider-Man No Way Home on December 17, 2021.

Black Widow is in cinemas now and streaming on Disney+ Premier Access.

The reported issues with ITV Hub kicked in ahead of the first episode of the new season of Love Island airing.

The latest season of Love Island kicks off later today on ITV 2 at 9pm UK time.

As the ITV Hub issues hit users took to social networking site Twitter to report the issues they were facing.

One tweeted: “ITV hub ceased at 3:23 in the France match… still waiting to see the first half! Nearly half time and nearly time for Love Island to start! 42 minutes of fault and only noticed 6m ago! Get it sorted!”

'Evidence is there' Rocker Tom DeLonge says aliens are watching us and 'governments know'

'Evidence is there' Rocker Tom DeLonge says aliens are watching us and 'governments know'

Oddly enough, the rocker believes there is ample evidence to back his beliefs.

He said on the podcast: “I think that, you know, there’s a reason why people are having experiences in the middle of the night and they draw some kind of entity, and then you go back thousands of years and those entities are like on cave drawings and petroglyphs and stuff.

“You know, there’s a reason why all the religions of the world are discussing a lot of the same themes that mankind is in this, you know, stuck between good and evil and there’s people on both sides who come and influence us and all this stuff.

“I think we need to pay a lot more attention to everything around us.”

There is, of course, very little if any evidence to substantiate the claim aliens are watching us.

What If Doctors Are Always Watching, but Never There?

What If Doctors Are Always Watching, but Never There?

This new system, which continually monitors and collects patient data, has recently gone wireless. It is being tested on patients in a hospital in Birmingham, England, but it and similar remote systems might be used in patients’ homes in the future. The more I read on the subject, the more I realized that remote patient monitoring could change medicine radically: hastening medical responses and improving health outcomes; remapping the zones of health care; but also perhaps transforming how doctors like me think, in ways we might not so readily welcome.

Close observation of patients has been a universal duty of all doctors throughout time. For millennia, medical practitioners used their senses to assess a patient’s condition. Even now, we doctors are trained to recognize the hard-candy breath of sick diabetics, the glass bottle clonking sound of an obstructed bowel, and the cold, clammy feel of skin when a patient’s circulation is shutting down. But the systematic recording of numerical observations is a surprisingly recent phenomenon.

In the late 1800s, instruments were designed to measure a standardized set of health indicators. These are the four main vital signs: heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, and blood pressure. It was just before the turn of the last century that these vital signs, also known as observations, were first documented systematically. By World War I they were used routinely. Studies of these charts revealed that people basically never died when these vital signs were normal; hearts don’t stop out of the blue. But for the better part of a century, the art of interpreting these so-called obs charts was, to the untrained, as mysterious as reading tea leaves.

Then, in 1997, a team based at the James Paget University Hospital, in Norfolk, England, developed an early warning system with which a nurse could quickly turn vital signs into a score. If the score surpassed a threshold, it was a signal to call for a doctor’s assistance. Such systems were steadily rolled out for adult patients, but it was not clear if they would work in children, whose physiological responses to illness are different from those of adults.

Heather Duncan knew about about early warning systems for adult patients in 2000, when she was working in South Africa as a general practitioner with a keen interest in children’s health. Ordinarily, observations taken in a hospital aren’t connected to earlier ones made in primary care clinics. But Duncan tried to link these two datasets—from the community and the hospital—to create a more meaningful, continuous story of what was happening to patients. She took the trouble to scrutinize the records of her sickest children, plotting their vital signs from the time they were first recorded in primary care to their discharge or death in the hospital. “I noticed children were having cardiac arrests or intensive care admissions, and that actually there were missed opportunities where we should have acted further,” she remembers.

Her nagging feeling that more could be done for such children was later corroborated by the UK’s Confidential Enquiry into Child Deaths, which found that more than a quarter of children in National Health Service hospitals were dying of avoidable causes. In 2003, Duncan completed a fellowship in critical care at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, where—together with Chris Parshuram, a pediatric intensive care doctor—she developed the Pediatric Early Warning System, or PEWS, a bedside scoring system designed for sick children.

Duncan now works as a consulting pediatric intensivist in Birmingham Children’s Hospital. I caught up with her on Zoom last October. Duncan was working from home, wrapped up against the English autumn in an oversized, cream fleece, her hair pulled back into a loose bun, and wearing blue-rimmed specs that matched her eyes. She speaks with a genteel South African accent and has a calming manner, surely an asset working in such a stressful specialty. Her hospital had adopted the PEWS score in 2008 and seen a drop in the number of children dying after suffering a cardiac arrest—from 12 in 2005 to no deaths in 2010.
