First UNbacked simulation of cyber attack takes place in Southeast Asia

2 December 2011Mass web destruction, spam and malware infection were among the scenarios involved during the first cross-border cyber drill organized by the United Nations and an international partnership against online threats in South-east Asia that aims to build cooperation and improve response measures to cyber attacks. The drill, launched by the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT), was a coordinated exercise to assess the security and emergency readiness of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Viet Nam, also known as the CLMV countries. Each country had a team participating in three simulated cyber security emergency incidents. Teams were required to identify the origin of the attacks, identify possible solutions and mitigation steps, and rectify the damage. The one-day exercise then simulated a cyber attack response linking the response systems of the fours countries known as Computer Emergency Response Team/Computer Incident Response Teams (CERT/CIRT), as well as experts from ITU and IMPACT.“Cyber attacks are borderless, so it is vital for every CERT/CIRT to share information and experience on cross-border incident handling, in order to refine and test points of contact and procedures, to enhance the effectiveness of their response to active cyber threats,” said ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun Touré. According to a news release issued by ITU, the exercise was intended to help build greater cooperation and improve communication among the countries, and it took into account real-life constraints such as the disparity in the countries’ capabilities and developments. The drill, which was held yesterday, did not aim to criticize capabilities or a particular network, system or infrastructure, but instead sought to emphasize the need for continuous communication channels between neighbouring countries, as well as enhance each country’s incident response capabilities.“The ITU-IMPACT ALERT (Applied Learning for Emergency Response Team) achieved several positive outcomes, including identification of readiness of each country’s CERTs/CIRTs team, establishing the need for proper contingency plans, improving the familiarity with tools and other related software and communicating the importance of maintaining logs and having adequately trained personnel in place to handle cyber threats,” said Datuk Mohd Noor Amin, Chairman of IMPACT.“This was a great opportunity for countries to put their contingency strategies to the test. This cyber drill serves as the prototype for upcoming larger global exercises being designed for 2012.” read more

Mining and African development

first_imgResponsible mining is capable of creating general economic welfare for its host communities in Africa which could long survive the mines themselves, says Randgold Resources chief executive Mark Bristow. Speaking at a media briefing on Monday, Bristow said the utilisation of natural resources was often the best and sometimes the only way of alleviating the pressing problem of poverty in much of Africa.  For the full benefit to be spread throughout the affected communities, however, mining companies had to take an enlightened long-term view of their activities, give priority to the development of sustainable operations, and build mutually rewarding partnerships with the governments and people of their host countries. “If you’re driven only by dollars, you shouldn’t be mining in Africa,” Bristow said.  “Here, you must accept that you have to invest in the future and that you also have a responsibility to make a tangible contribution to such things as infrastructural development and social upliftment programmes.”He said Mali presented an outstanding example of what this approach could achieve. He noted that over the past 10 years, Randgold Resources alone had invested and reinvested more than $1 billion there. During that time, the mines it developed at Morila and Loulo  –  in areas where there had been little economic activity other than subsistence farming  –  had paid $500 million directly to the government in taxes, royalties and dividends. It was the largest single taxpayer in the country as well as its largest private-sector employer, having provided more than 3,000 Malians with skills and careers. These in turn are estimated to have generated economic benefit for a further 60,000 local people.  In line with its policy of local empowerment, the company’s general manager for Mali, the General Manager of Loulo mine and a substantial proportion of the management team were all Malian nationals.“Randgold Resources is also committed to the integration of environmental and social impact management into its business activities, and operates to international standards in this regard.  On the social responsibility front, Morila last year spent more than $160,000 on direct community development while Loulo spent more than $240,000 on projects ranging from building and equipping schools to malaria control programmes,” he said.“These initiatives are not undertaken unilaterally but are the products of close consultation with the local communities.  We have also consulted a range of NGOs and aid organisations about our approach to social and environmental management and will continue to do so.”Bristow noted that in Mali, as in the other African countries in which Randgold Resources operates, the mining industry is in fact closely regulated by the relevant authorities. “In Africa, it is not enough for a company to be profitable  –  it also has to be a responsible corporate citizen and a good neighbour, with a demonstrable long-term commitment to its host country,” he said.“Randgold Resources has put its money where its mouth is.  Given a commensurate commitment to investment, development and constructive cooperation by the other parties with an interest in the welfare of this region  –  and that includes not only mining companies and governments but also aid organisations  –  I believe we can create economic welfare capable of long outliving the mines on which it was based.  And that is the antithesis of exploitation.”last_img read more

Ubisoft planning Assassins Creed for tablets

first_imgUbisoft giveth, and taketh away. Nintendo 3DS owners who were looking forward to their own Assassin’s Creed game will be disappointed to learn the project has been canceled. At the same time though, Ubisoft announced that they were planning new Assassin’s Creed games, specifically for new platforms like tablets like the iPad.The announcement that Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy was canceled came as a blow for fans looking forward to the game, but at the same time Ubisoft said that they have other plans. Ubisoft announced that they were planning to bring the Assassin’s Creed franchise to tablets, claiming that the games won’t be simple ports of their existing titles but entirely new games.According to a statement by Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot on Ubisoft’s company earnings call, Assassin’s Creed for tablets “will be different games,” and that they’ll be “either adapted from other games we created or games developed specifically for those platforms.” He didn’t say much else, but the statement is clear, tablet owners can expect Assassin’s Creed titles in the near future.Guillemot also made a point to note that the cancellation of Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy had nothing to do with sales of the Nintendo 3DS as a platform. When the game was first canceled, initial speculation was that poor sales of Nintendo‘s new handheld system was the reason Ubisoft decided to cancel development.Instead, Ubisoft said that the sales had nothing to do with it, and instead the fact that there are a number of high-profile games headed for the platform made them choose to redirect their attention to new platforms.via What Culture and IGNlast_img read more

Farmers blockade for second week

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The farmer blockades across Greece continued for the second week in support of their call for continued agricultural subsidies.Twenty eight road blocks have been maintained by the protesting farmers across Greece.However Greek Prime Minsiter George Papandreou has ruled out any additional handouts for farmers.“We are not going to give any subsidies. We will not spend money so that the farmers actions stop and the tractors leave the blockades. “We have a Stability Plan and we have the trust and self-belief to implement it. We will not even waste one euro,” the Greek Prime Minister said speaking from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.The Agricultural Development Minister Katerina Batzeli met with farmers from the various blockades across Greece earlier in the week without success. However Batzeli has put a proposal to the PanHellenic Coordinating Committee, which represents the farmers in central Greece and Macedonia, calling for a four month process of dialogue to resolve the issue raised by farmers.Batzeli has also made proposals designed to promote agricultural associations and cooperatives and to decrease the gap between the whole and retail costs for agricultural products.The Minister is due to meet with farmer representatives today (Friday) to find a compromise solution which will lead to the dismantling of the blockades. A further twist was added to the story when the The European Commission (EC) said last week that it had launched an investigation into whether 425 million euros paid out to farmers in 2008 and 2009 as compensation for damages actually constituted state subsidies, which would violate European common market regulations.The EC gave the government a month to provide more details about the payouts made by the Hellenic Agricultural Insurance Organisation (ELGA), which oversees the compensation to farmers. “It cannot be ruled out that the compensation paid by ELGA in 2008 and 2009 under the compulsory insurance scheme constitutes state aid,” the Commission said in a statement. If it transpires that theses payments were state subsidies, the government will be obliged to recover the 425 million euros from farmers or face the European Court.last_img read more

Planned Holiday Spending Little Affected By Harvey In Houston

first_img Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:09 X Houston shoppers plan to spend $668 on holiday purchases this year, $36 more than the national average and more than in previous years, according to a survey by Accenture.Jorge Corral, the company’s southwest retail lead, said there’s at least one way Harvey might have affected planned consumer spending for the holidays.“Thirty percent of Houstonians indicated that an unexpected emergency would be a negative factor affecting their holiday spending,” he said. Even more, 40 percent, said the price of gasoline might affect their spending negatively.After Harvey, gas prices went up across the United States. But overall, Corral said, the effect from Harvey on planned holiday spending is negligible.What is interesting is a national trend away from traditional peak holiday shopping days like Black Friday.“For Houston, most shoppers, over 60 percent – 63 percent – are buying holiday gifts throughout the year,” Corral said. “And we believe one reason why is because they have ready access to online discounts all the time.”Despite the ever-growing share of online shopping, he said, what consumers are spending on holiday purchases in stores is going up too.Accenture Listenlast_img read more

Bill To Limit Use Of Chemicals In Firefighting Foams Local Effects Of

first_imgTuesday, May 21, 2019Top afternoon stories:David J. Phillip/APThis file photo shows firefighters battling the fire at ITC’s, petrochemical facility in Deer Park.Bill To Limit Use Of Chemicals In Firefighting FoamsFirst responders have to use special foams to put out chemical fires like the recent ones in Deer Park and Crosby. The foams themselves may pose health risks, and Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher is trying to do something about it.Studies have linked key chemicals in those firefighting foams to thyroid problems, immune deficiencies and cancer. The components are known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS.Fletcher is sponsoring a bill that would direct the EPA to issue guidance about how to minimize the use of PFAS without putting first responders’ lives at risk.Firefighters used more than 130,000 gallons of foam to put out the ITC fire in Deer Park in March. High levels of PFAS were later found in the Houston Ship Channel, while lower levels were found further downstream, according to the Galveston Bay Foundation.lecsLocal Effects Of A Trade War With ChinaWhen it comes to the Trump administration’s growing trade war with China, Houston’s industry is probably better insulated than the rest of the U.S., according to experts.Steve Lewis, the China fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute, told Houston Matters that China typically imports only what it can’t produce domestically – and on which it’s willing to pay a premium.“If they’re getting something from Houston, it’s usually something they really need,” Lewis said. “It’s usually something like energy-related equipment [or] specific chemicals or plastics that actually are cheaper here than they are in China, because we have source supply coming from shale oil and shale gas.”Lewis also said there’s another big risk to the Houston economy from a trade war with China. If slowing trade hurts China’s economy enough, Chinese demand for energy will drop. That in turn could drive down the price of crude oil.Gabrielle Keene for Houston Public MediaNFL coaching veteran June Jones is the the new head coach for Houston’s XFL franchise.Coach For Houston’s New Pro Football TeamHouston’s XFL franchise has hired football coaching veteran June Jones as its new head coach.Jones, a former professional football player himself, has coached at the high school, college and professional level since 1983.

In the opinion, Paxton stated that “unless a church provides effective oral or written notice prohibiting the carrying of handguns on its property, a license holder may carry a handgun onto the premises of church property as the law allows.” Sharelast_img read more

Universal needs Russell Crowe to be Dr Jekyll wants more Vampire Chron

first_imgThat’s last month! I guess this project isn’t dead after all! I bet you thought I’d make a pun, but I didn’t.Enjoy your summer of superhero movies, peasants, the Monsters (trademark Universal Pictures) are coming to get you. It may be summer, but Universal is getting SPOOKY with their future movie line-up if the buzz is to be believed. Not only do they keep adding A-list talent to their announced but not yet executed shared cinematic universe of monsters, but they’re planning on remaking the first chapter in Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles.The Universal movie monsters are some of the most well known in cinema, adapting horror novels like Dracula and Frankenstein in the 1930s into the version of the stories that have permeated the public consciousness since.Dracula wasn’t altered that much from the Bram Stoker original when Universal adapted it from a play by Howard Deane. The stage adaptation compressed Bram Stoker’s plot, added familial relationships between characters that didn’t exist in the text, and combined the female roles of Lucy and Mina into one character. The changes to Frankenstein were much more than superficial, introducing the concept of “Igor” the assistant into the mix and forever associating the title of “Frankenstein” with Frankenstein’s Monster.Frankenstein Monsters against FrankensteiningThen there was a run of successful Universal monsters in the 1940s that added Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Invisible Man, and The Wolf Man into the monster stable. Since, with the exception of some silly Mummy action movies, not much has been working on the monster reboot front.In 2014, Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley laid out the strategy on how Universal was going to get into the superhero franchise business without having any Marvel properties to turn into interconnected movies:“We’ve tried over the years to make monster movies — unsuccessfully, actually. So, we took a good, hard look at it, and we settled upon an idea, which is to take it out of the horror genre, put it more in the action-adventure genre and make it present day, bringing these incredibly rich and complex characters into present day and reimagine them and reintroduce them to a contemporary audience.”With apologies to Brendan Fraiser’s Mummy movies, I’m sure. I mean, they have rides at their theme parks based on it.Speaking of The Mummy, that was the character selected to receive the first all-star reboot treatment. Alex Kurtzman will be directing after having extricated himself from writing duties on the Star Trek and Amazing Spider-Man film series. A reboot of The Mummy got a June 9th 2017 release date when Tom Cruise joined the movie to be the film’s star. We don’t know if that means Tom Cruise is a mummy or not, but Tom Cruise signing onto the project suddenly gave the idea of updating Universal’s monsters for the big screen some validity.Universal parked an untitled monster movie on April 13th, 2018 and Johnny Depp was brought on to play The Invisible Man. We don’t know if the 2018 release date is for The Invisble Man reboot, but up until today that was the most recent casting edition to Universal’s Monster Mash Cinematic Universe……Enter Russell Crowe. The Gladiator star (and Academy Award winner) is apparently close to signing on in a co-starring role in The Mummy with Tom Cruise. The report is that Crowe will be playing a “a Jekyll-like role,” that could set him up for a future Mr. Crowe/Mr. Hyde spin-off if that’s in the cards.Universal is also re-entering the vampire movie game after their last foray: 2014’s Dracula Untold. The studio owns the rights to all thirteen books that make up author Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Only two of the novels have been adapted, 1994’s Interview with a Vampire and 2002’s Queen of the Damned.Sometime around Dracula Untold’s opening two years ago, long before Alex Kurtzman was in the director’s chair for a The Mummy reboot, we heard that Universal had teamed up with writer/producers Brian Grazer (of Imagine Entertainment), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and Bobby Cohen to reboot Rice’s Vampire Chronicles (why let thirteen possible interconnected movies go to waste?).Tom Cruise, who was in the last Interview with a Vampire, is not connected to the reboot.Virtually nothing came of that announcement, certainly we heard more about the Monster Mash universe in the two years that have passed. Then, Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) took to Instagram and tweeted the cover page of an Interview with a Vampire screenplay that is dated April 2016.last_img read more

Super emergency says Mamata after TMC team manhandled

first_imgSilchar: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday lashed out at the Centre, and the Assam government after a delegation of Trinamool Congress party (TMC) MPs were first manhandled then detained at Silchar Airport by Assam Police on Thursday.She claimed that members of the TMC delegation, including women, were manhandled at the airport and accused the BJP of imposing “super emergency” in the country. “I think this is the beginning of their end. They are frustrated. That is why they are acting like a bunch of hooligans. If there is peace everywhere then why did the Assam government not allow our MPs and MLAs to talk to the affected people,” she added. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeAddressing reporters at the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport after her return to Kolkata from Delhi on Thursday afternoon, she said the Central BJP leaders had visited Asansol after the communal violence recently flouting prohibitory orders under Section 144 CrPC. “We had allowed them to visit the area, but in Assam, the BJP is trying to stifle the voice of the people who are living under uncertainty and panic. I condemn the way the police had manhandled our women MPs.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedShe maintained that the incident in Assam had exposed the saffron party. As the Trinamool team landed around 1.30 pm, the airport had a large contingent of police and district officials who refused to let the lawmakers leave citing an overnight ban on large gatherings. The argument escalated, with the Trinamool alleging that its members were roughed up. Visuals recorded on mobile phone show Mahua Moitra, an MP, trying to get away from the policewomen, who run after her. Another woman lawmaker is pushed. “Our members were roughed up. Sukhendu Shekhar Roy has a pacemaker, he was also roughed up,” said outraged Trinamool leader Derek O’Brien in Delhi. Women MPs were also hurt, he said, adding: “What is going on?” Sukhendu Shekhar Roy, the Rajya Sabha member who led the team, said the police refused to let the group go into town even after he and his colleagues cancelled a public meeting and assured the police that they would only meet people. The legislators and parliamentarians protested at the arrival lounge for hours before they were detained. The TMC delegation including six MPs was kept in the VIP lounge of Kumbhigram airport here in Cachar district under Barak Valley region, the officials said. The issue was raised in Lok Sabha. Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day (on this issue), the statement said. The Trinamool Congress is planning to move a privilege motion in Lok Sabha on Friday against the detention of its members of parliament in Silchar in Assam on Friday.last_img read more

Robbie Williams angers X Factor fans for deadnaming trans singer

That’s quite an on-the-spot situation to be put in, having to explain oneself,’ one Twitter user wrote.Robbie Williams asking a trans man all about his life BEFORE transitioning whilst he sits with his feet up on the desk is so gross and disrespectful. #XFactor is dead and finished.— Jason Reid (@JasonReidUK) 8 September 2018 eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Felix Shepherd appearing on the X Factor | Photo: Youtube/The X Factor UK #XFactor okay so Felix is lovely and I’m really proud to see another trans person on the TV, but has No-one told Robbie Williams it’s considered pretty darn rude to ask someone’s birth name?

I live a normal life – I sleep in too late, I annoy my mum – I’m just an everyday sort of person,’ Shepherd said.‘My mum paid for me to have treatment privately. I’m just blessed with the people that I have around me.’He said that his transition had affected his voice, and he was no longer able to hit the same high notes as before. ‘Obviously, my voice has dropped, I had to adapt. Literally, in February I had a falsetto and it disappeared,’ he said.Williams’ fellow judges, Simon Cowell, Ayda Field, and Louis Tomlinson, applauded the singer’s attitude, and noted how popular he was with the crowd. ‘Felix, you didn’t get four yeses.

Cheers as French hosts release proposed UN climaterescue pact

first_imgLE BOURGET, France — French hosts of U.N. talks submitted to cheers and applause Saturday a proposed 195-nation accord to defeat global warming, which threatens mankind but needs an energy revolution to resolve. Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, on the brink of tears after presiding over nearly a fortnight of talks in Paris, delivered the proposal to ministers who must now decide whether to approve it, possibly within hours.“It is my conviction that we have come up with an ambitious … agreement,” Fabius said, telling the ministers they would achieve a “historic turning point” for the world if they endorsed it.The hoped-for deal seeks to end decades-long rows between rich and poor nations over how to fund the multi-trillion-dollar campaign.With 2015 forecast to be the hottest year on record, world leaders and scientists have warned the accord is vital for capping rising temperatures and averting the most catastrophic consequences of climate change.If climate change goes unabated, scientists warn of increasingly severe droughts, floods and storms, as well as rising seas that would engulf islands and coastal areas populated by hundreds of millions of people.Fabius said that, if approved, the deal would set a “floor” in funding, in which at least $100 billion a year from 2020 would be channelled to help the developing world fight global warming.It would also aim at limiting warming of the planet since the Industrial Revolution to “well below” 2.0 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) and strive for an even more ambitious goal of 1.5 C, he said.French President Francois Hollande and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon sat on stage alongside Fabius as he made a lengthy speech imploring ministers to approve the blueprint on Saturday.Raising hopes of a successful conclusion, negotiators stood up and cheered before Fabius spoke, and rose in another standing ovation at the end.“You have a chance to change the world,” Hollande told delegates.“You have to take the final step, the decisive step which allows us to reach the goal.”U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry added to the optimism, saying afterwards the United States was pleased with the planned accord.“It should be good, but we’ll see. Little things can happen, but we think it’s teed up,” Kerry said.The proposed agreement came after negotiators missed an initial deadline of Friday to sign an accord, as feuding ministers refused to budge on entrenched positions.Enduring money battlesDeveloped and developing nations have failed for decades to sign an effective universal pact to tame global warming and shore up defences against its impacts.They have been badly divided over how much responsibility each side must shoulder.At the heart of the deal is cutting back or eliminating the use of coal, oil and gas for energy, which has largely powered nations’ paths towards prosperity since the Industrial Revolution began in the 1700s.The burning of fossil fuels releases greenhouse gases, which cause the planet to warm and change Earth’s delicate climate system. Ending the vicious circles requires a revolution in energy efficiency and a switch to cleaner sources, such as solar and wind.“Climate change represents an urgent and potentially irreversible threat to human societies and the planet,” the draft warned.Developing nations have insisted rich countries must shoulder the lion’s share of responsibility for tackling climate change as they have emitted most of the greenhouse gases since the Industrial Revolution.But the United States and other rich nations have stood firm that emerging giants must also do more.They have argued that developing countries now account for most of current emissions, and thus will be largely responsible for future warming.Legal obligationsRich countries promised six years ago in Copenhagen to muster the $100 billion a year referred to in the new agreement, which is meant to help developing nations transition to renewable energies and cope with the impacts of global warming.But how the funds will be raised remained unclear going into the Paris talks, and developing nations had demanded clarity in the new accord.Developing countries also demanded a commitment to increase the amount after 2020.The United States had insisted it could not accept proposals that the accord made the financing obligations legally binding.Despite being formally submitted, the proposed agreement was not available immediately after Fabius’s speech.Ahead of the talks, most nations submitted voluntary plans to curb greenhouse gas emissions from 2020, a process widely hailed as an important platform for success.But scientists say that, even if the pledges were fully honoured, Earth would be on track for warming far above safe limits.They also warn against failures to spell out how much to cut greenhouse gases and by when, thus providing key markers on the path towards the targets.Nations most vulnerable to climate change lobbied hard for wording in the Paris pact to limit warming to 1.5 C. Big polluters, such as China, India and oil producing-giant Saudi Arabia, preferred a ceiling of 2 C, enabling them to burn fossil fuels for longer.The proposed agreement’s references to both a target of “well below 2 C”, while also aiming for 1.5 C, indicated the vulnerable nations had won the battle.As Fabius put forward the proposed deal, green demonstrators lobbied anew, using the geolocalization feature on their mobile phones to spell out the words “Climate,” “Justice” and “Peace” on an interactive map of the city.But the talks could yet take another twist with opposition to points of the planned agreement when ministers gather again on Saturday afternoon.A closely watched part of the new text will be details on the framework for reviewing and improving national pledges.

With the NBA draft behind us NBA free agency reac

first_imgWith the NBA draft behind us, NBA free agency reaching its conclusion and the Major League Baseball schedule stretching out before us like the Red Waste from now until September, the dog days of summer are officially here.However, this is no time to tarry if you’re a depraved fantasy football participant. Sure, there’s two months to go before any legitimate football is played on Sundays, but this is the time where fantasy football championships are won! At least that’s what you tell yourself after spending multiple hours maniacally pouring over depth charts, searching for the deepest of fantasy sleepers in your skivvies. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Ellington made an appearance in these rankings as well, but in a not so flattering manner, as Gelhar ranked Ellington as his ninth-worst bust heading into the upcoming fantasy season. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   center_img Lucky for you, we’ve taken some of the work (and the shame) out of the equation.In examining the Arizona Cardinals, it appears as if one player, in particular, has captured the attention of the fantasy football analysts at NFL.com. That player is rookie running back and third-round pick of the Cardinals, David Johnson.Standing 6-foot-1 and 224 pounds, Johnson not only has the size and athletic ability, but he also has the opportunity. Last year’s starter Andre Ellington is anything but entrenched as the Cardinals’ lead back.Labeling him as one of this year’s top “deep sleepers,” NFL.com NFL Media writer Alex Gelhar had this to say about Johnson’s prospects this season.When the Cardinals tried to make Andre Ellington a feature back last year, the results were disastrous. Ellington’s yards-per-carry and yards-per-reception numbers fell sharply, and he missed much of the season with injury. Enter Johnson, whose talents should mesh perfectly with the Arizona offense. Despite being a bigger back, Johnson isn’t as powerful as one would expect, but he has great hands out of the backfield and good straight-line burst. He should be able to make a fantasy impact between the tackles and in the passing game.Meanwhile, NFL Network reporter James Koh said this about Johnson, who he believes is one of this year’s top “bargains.” Don’t let the generic name fool you, this dude’s game is anything but nondescript. Out of the mighty Missouri Valley Conference, the Northern Iowa product is a physical beast. Standing at 6-foot-1, 225 pounds, Johnson posted stupid combine numbers. A 4.50-second 40-yard dash, 41.5-inch vertical, 10-foot broad jump and 25 reps on the bench. Our resident draft expert, Mike Mayock, loves him. But more importantly, the Arizona Cardinals love him, spending a third-round pick to bring him to their squad.Now, I know what you’re thinking, the Cardinals already have Andre Ellington, dummy! To which I would reply, Jeremy Hill. Remember when Cincinnati already had an emerging star in Gio Bernard and then surprisingly took Hill in the second round? Hill emerged as the workhorse back and the Bengals ended up with an awesome two-back rotation. I see a similar situation developing in the desert. Not only does Johnson have all of the physical characteristics of a stud early-down back, he is a proven and capable receiver as well. I think Johnson will eventually find himself being drafted in Round 10 or later, but given his size, speed, strength and hands, Johnson has first, yes, FIRST-round potential.Cardinals wide receiver John Brown was also tabbed as Gelhar’s second-best fantasy “breakout” candidate, while Michael Fabiano called the fleet-footed wideout his seventh-best fantasy “deep sleeper.” Koh called wide receiver Michael Floyd his third-best “breakout” candidate.

2 Bar Coluzzi offers a trip down memory lane Elen

first_img2. Bar Coluzzi offers a trip down memory laneEleni and Luigi Coluzzi built this coffee institution on Victoria Rd in the 1950s. Back then there was nothing like that in Sydney, and famous Italians used to congregate here to play chess, talk about life and do business. Nowadays it still offers some of the best coffee in Sydney and when I go in I never know who I’m going to meet. Old timers sit on the few outside tables to smoke a cigarette, drink their strong short black and watch all sorts of characters pass by on the street. My favourite time to go is Sunday afternoon around 3pm when the sun hits your face before disappearing behind the tall buildings.Address: 322 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst, New South Wales, Australia 2060Opening times: 5am – 7pm3. Take the ferry over to Manly for the dayThis is where you can really hunker down with the locals. Some Sydney siders are lucky enough to call this ferry their ‘daily commute’, which you can enjoy every day from Circular Quay. This gives you a great view of the Quay and Nelson’s Point from the water. Manly is on the north of the harbour, well known for it’s palm tree lined boulevards, surf shops and seafront restaurants (see 10. on this list!). The beach is perfect for swimmers, but there are plenty of hidden coves where you can catch a few waves too. Address: Manly, NSW 2095Ferry times between Manly and Circular Quay: Ferries run between 6am and 1am. Check the full timetable here. 6. See the Harbour Bridge from Shangri-La Hotel’s Blue Bar 36On the 36th floor of the Shangri-La Hotel in The Rocks there’s a bar that, in my opinion, has the very best view in Sydney. With panoramic views over the Opera House, Darling Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge this trendy cocktail bar is all about ambiance and sophistication. With a mixed crowd of young hipsters, tourists and ‘first daters’ this extravagant bar makes me feel that Sydney is indeed a Grand Dame. Tip: the elderflower margarita is a must try.Address: 36/176 Cumberland St, Sydney NSW 2000Opening times: 5pm – 12amCost: Free, drinks start at $10 4. Bondi Beach: the quintessential beach that’s still adored by localsFor me, Bondi was love at first sight. This beautiful beach encompasses the Australian way of life, which can be summed up as ‘no worries, mate’. Everyone’s here, from pumped guys in board shorts surfing the waves to bikini-clad girls sunbathing right the way along the beach. Families set up their beach tents to spend the day here and lifeguards remind you to ‘swim between the flags’. It can get pretty crowded during the summer so if you want to do it like a local, get there at 7.30am and leave by 10.30am. There are several restaurants at the Pavilion and if you are one for sitting and enjoying the view from above, go to the RSL on the second floor of Icebergs to watch life, and the waves, go by. 9. Pretend you’re in a New York jazz club at Blue BeatJust 20 minutes by ferry from Circular Quay is Cockatoo Island, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It used to be one of the biggest shipyards in Sydney and one my friends remembers people who use to work there fixing machines – without any security equipment to speak of. The place is impressive in itself but there’s also an Island Bar where you can order pizza and cocktails and just soak up the surroundings. There are several tunnels filled with old iron industrial machines and the place is home to several festivals throughout the year. The most notorious is the Biennale Arts festival that happens every two years. For the more adventurous you can rent ‘glam tents’ and spend a fantastic night overlooking Sydney Harbour and exploring the area at night with a torch.Address: 16 Cross St, Double Bay NSW 2028 8. Be part of the underground gangsters’ scene at Love Tilly DevineIn a hidden laneway around the corner from the newly-opened Red Lantern Restaurant in East Sydney there’s a tiny wine bar that is part of the new ‘small-bar revolution’ in Sydney. Tilly Devine was part of the underground gang history of Kings Cross in the 1920s. She was an English prostitute who graduated to run one of the most successful brothels in the time of prohibition in Sydney. The bar serves wine in old-school glass milk bottles. The sommelier is not shy to recommend you one of the 300 different wines – served in old-school glass milk bottles. Although to be quite honest, I always come here for the best ‘Negroni’ in Sydney and to check out the new bar menu, which changes every day.Address: 91 Crown Ln, Darlinghurst SydneyOpening hours: 5am-12pm RelatedTravelling alone?

Spoil yourself with a luxurious ‘mini-break’ at The Langham Sydney HotelIf I want to feel like I’m taking an expensive vacation without even leaving Sydney, I head down to this hidden little gem inside the Langham Sydney (formerly known as The Observatory Hotel) in Sydney’s Central Business District. $45 gets you entrance to the gym and access to the indoor swimming pool, situated under a midnight-blue starry ceiling flanked by Greek white pillars. I sit down in one of the luxurious pool chairs wrapped in my fluffy white robe and slippers and read the morning paper drinking my cup of apple tea. Later on I head down to the jacuzzi and let any stress melt away. The changing rooms alone are exquisite, and there’s a steam bath and sauna to enjoy. If I feel like really treating myself I get one of the fabulous spa treatments like the organic frangipani and pomegranate body wraps. Now that’s what I call good living!Address: 13 Kent Street, Sydney, New South Wales 2000 7.

Fish and chips at Watson’s BayMy favourite way to spend a Sunday afternoon is taking the Manly Ferry from Wharf 3 at Circular Quay to Watson’s Bay for the quintessential Australian meal: fish and chips’ at Doyle’s on the Beach. Doyle’s is a family restaurant that has been in Sydney for five generations. Perch yourself on one of the tables overlooking the harbour, buy a bucket of Coronas for $20 and get your hands greasy with delicious golden beer-battered fish fillet. You have to watch out for the seagulls though – they are trained attackers!Address: 1 Military Rd, Watsons Bay NSW 2030Opening hours: 12-3pm, 5.30-8.30pmWe can almost smell the fish and chips (well, you can if you’re in the UK).

When you are done exercising you can choose between a picnic in the gardens, lunch at the main cafe or simply sitting on a bench and watching the world go by.
