Lee Backs Regular China Trips

first_imgNews News SHARE South Korean President Lee Myung Bak backed the premises behind Kim Jong Il’s trip to China today, stating, “By going often to see and learn, and with Chinese help, these things can bring change.” President Lee, speaking at a meeting of the National Unification Advisory Council at the Blue House, went on, “Many people wonder whether they rely too much on China, but I do not think so.” Noting his conversation with Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao last weekend, President Lee said the two leaders agreed on the benefits of meeting regularly with the North Korean leadership to demonstrate the best way forward.“The unification of our country may take decades,” President Lee said, but added that “as we saw in the unification of Germany, we must prepare as if it will come tomorrow.”He continued, “Now, after last year’s Cheonan and Yeonpyeong Island incidents, North Korea is at quite a distance. So now they must now come out in a more responsible posture.”“We cannot know if we will find ourselves in a conflict, but since we are one people, there will always be an opportunity to get on good terms again at some point,” he said. “We believe that the two Koreas can engage in conversation in the name of the future and of development.”“North Korea must increase its economic self-reliance in such a way that its people can enjoy the basic rights that every human should have. We must work out of the earnest affection of being one people to make the North Korean people more self-reliant.” Facebook Twitter News AvatarKim Tae Hong News center_img Lee Backs Regular China Trips By Kim Tae Hong – 2011.05.26 6:13pm RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with Chinalast_img read more

Is Beth Phoenix’s HOF Induction a Further Smack in the Face to Pro Wrestling History?

first_img Related TopicsBeth PhoenixChynaTammy SytchWWEWWE Hall of Fame Vince McKee Nearly a year ago, I wrote an article about how hypocritical the WWE Hall of fame can be. Yesterday, they proved it yet again by doing a favor to the wife of Adam Copeland (Edge) and announced the upcoming induction of Beth Phoenix.  A woman who spent a little over 5 years on the main roster, and not all of them in the main event picture.  Meanwhile, they continue to snub the woman who redefined woman’s role in Pro Wrestling, Chyna!Joanie “Chyna” Laurer was easily one of the WWE’s greatest female athletes of all time. She was the first female to compete on a regular basis with men. She was a former multi time IC champion, as well as the first female to compete in the Royal Rumble and King of the Ring. Not to mention, a founding member of DX.The WWE’s main reason for the snub was her shaky history after leaving pro wrestling. She had multiple drug issues along the way but the WWE has seen that with many of their former and current stars. What is holding her back is her role in the adult film industry.Laurer made her porn debut with the 2004 video 1 Night in China with former boyfriend and pro wrestler Sean Waltman. Laurer appeared in her second pornographic video, entitled Another Night in China in 2009. In 2011, Laurer starred in her first professional pornographic film for Vivid Video entitled Backdoor to Chyna. She also starred for Vivid as She-Hulk in their parody of The Avengers, released in May 2012. A spinoff feature centered around the She-Hulk character and titled She-Hulk XXX was released to video in April 2013It is hypocritical considering the WWE had no problems allowing multi time drug user and adult star Tammy “Sunny” Sytch into their Hall of Fame in 2011 during Wrestlemania 27 weekend.She posed nude for Missy Hyatt’s adult website Wrestling Vixxxens. She filmed her first of what will be many adult films with Vivid Entertainment for an adult film called Sunny Side Up: In Through the Backdoor.  She also charges people for nude pic sessions on Skype on snap chat.Adult films hasn’t been her only black mark since leaving the WWE as she also has had multiple issues with the law. In 2012, Sytch was arrested five times in a four-week span, for disorderly conduct, third degree burglary, and three counts of violating a protective order. She was arrested a sixth time in January 2013, also for violating a protective order. She was recently arrested yet again, just last month for breaking probation and routinely insults people on her Facebook page where she is currently once again, in rehab.Sytch served 114 days in jail and was released in May 2013. In January 2016, Sytch pleaded guilty to driving while under suspension-DUI related charges stemming from three separate arrests in May and June 2015.It seems like a double standard when you consider the fact that Sytch never set foot in a WWE ring as an actual competitor and was never anything more than eye candy. If the WWE wants to improve their overall PR and Hall of Fame legitimacy then it needs to remove people lie Drew Carey and “The Arnold”, and start placing in those who actually deserve it and blazed those trails they are always talking about. Speaking of “blazing”, they just inducted The Godfather, a “pimp”.As Owen Hart (someone else who should be inducted) once said, “Enough is Enough and it is time for a change!” It is time for the late great Chyna to take her proper role in the WWE Hall of Fame.You can follow Vince McKee on twitter at VinceTheAuthorlast_img read more

From Entry Point to Exit Point: A New Security Strategy

first_imgThe concept of user-centered IT isn’t exclusive to the CIO; the CISO should be focusing on it too. As security has evolved with technology, threats have shifted and grown at an even greater rate. Initially, it was us vs. them. Safeguard everything inside the castle and fend off all the invaders trying to scale the walls. But times have changed.Today some of the greatest threats lie inside the castle walls. Any CISO will tell you that the greatest vulnerabilities often revolve around users. And as the barrier to entry has fallen, the potential for disaster has skyrocketed.The key is empowerment — enable your users to be smart and secure.User Knowledge is Power for Your EnterpriseBrett Hansen, executive director marketing end user computing software and mobility solutions at Dell, recently wrote:Clearly, the business must focus on using encryption to secure devices, particularly at the file level. Malware protection is also essential so that experimentation does not result in a widespread infection or serious hack. Beyond that, changing paradigms mean that businesses must refocus on user security. This requires a joined up approach, where users are aware and educated in the potential complications of using Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), or Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC), and aware of the need to manage devices correctly, in line with business policy.The convergence of social, mobile, analytics, and cloud has significant implications for end users, and promoting internal awareness can build a proactive security culture where it means the most.Intel IT’s Security Approach: Protect to EnableWhen Intel IT began focusing on the “three C’s” — cloud, collaboration, and choice — they had to confront the security concerns inherent to each initiative. So they developed a three-pronged strategy called “Protect to Enable.”Identity and Access Management (IdAM): “We are currently building a new foundational infrastructure that will support a more holistic identity and access strategy. Instead of multiple tools and policies, we will have a single IdAM hub through which all of our applications flow.”Cyber Security Center: “[T]he command post for threat prevention, detection, and response. The Cyber Security Center is responsible for analyzing events in our environment, identifying security issues, and initiating a response.”Security and Privacy by Design (PbD): “We are driving our risk mitigation philosophy and privacy principles upstream into our application and service development. By working with our design teams to build greater security and risk awareness into our applications, we can move the needle from reactive to proactive, develop stronger products, and deliver a better user experience. To integrate privacy into our applications and services, we are focused on applying the principles of PbD. These principles help guide our development teams on privacy considerations at each phase of a product’s or service’s lifecycle. In essence, we want the latest security intelligence, criterion, and privacy principles built into our applications and services, not bolted on.”We’re closing in on 2015; what will your security strategy entail in the new year?To continue the conversation, please follow us at @IntelITCenter or use #ITCenter.last_img read more

New-look India take fresh guard against improved Bangladesh

first_imgNew format and new captain in Virat Kohli as India take on an improved and fearless Bangladesh in the one-off Test match starting on Wednesday. This will be literally Kohli’s big test as full-time captain after MS Dhoni announced his retirement from Tests few months ago in Australia.During the Australia series, Kohli was filling in for an injured Dhoni but this Test will be completely different and all eyes would be on his tactical approach to the match. He too faces the dilemma of picking the right combination, will Kohli go in with five bowlers?India will start as favourites and looking at the head-to-head record, the visitors have won six out of seven Test matches. Bangladesh managed to draw one Test in Chittagong in 2007. But that is history now, Bangladesh are no more pushovers and on their day could upset any big teams like they pushed out England and entered the last stage of the World Cup.They followed it up by shocking Pakistan 3-0 in a ODI series and also drawing a Test against the same opposition. This particular performance of Bangladesh forced the Indian selectors to send their best team on the tour.  Bangladesh too have reasons to play their best cricket against India with the memories fresh of that ‘No-Ball’ in the World Cup quarterfinal, which robbed them off a fair chance for a win. However, Indian skipper Kohli in refence to that incident said that both teams have moved on.The Bangladesh bowling attack led by Rubel Hossain will have their task cut out against a formidable Indian batting line-up. If the track happens to be batting-friendly, India have the batsmen to post a big total. KL Rahul missing out due to illness is Shikhar Dhawan’s gain as the left-hander gets another chance to reclaim his opening spot after he was dropped in Sydney due to poor form. But after that Dhawan managed to bounce back with good outings at the World Cup and IPL.advertisementDhawan found it tough to handle the swing in England and Australia, but in sub-continent like conditions he should be more at home opening the innings. On the other hand, Murali Vijay after a brilliant England and Australia series would be looking for a big score. Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma should be automatic choice, unless Kohli decides to attack with five bowlers.However, all eyes would be on Pujara who has returned from England after a successful county stint with Yorkshire and needs to be seen if he has corrected his technical flaws. Rohit’s one-day credentials are better than Tests but he would be a confident player after a successfull World Cup and leading his IPL team Mumbai Indians to glory.The spotlight will also be on comeback man Harbhajan Singh making his return to the national side after two years. India are most likely to pick him up along with R Ashwin looking at five to six left-handers in their line-up. Kohli might find it tough while deciding on the fast bowlers and going by his liking for more pace, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Varun Aaron are most likely to find their names in the playing XI.For Bangladesh, Rubel Hossain’s comeback is good positive news but an injured Sahadat Hossain a matter of concern for the hosts. There are chances of Mushfiqur Rahim being relieved of wicketkeeping duties due to an injury to his finger during a training session, Litton Das may don the gloves. But the onus will be on senior players like Tamim Iqbal, Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan to lead the team by example against a tough and rather young Indian team.Teams (from):India: Virat Kohli (captain), Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Harbhajan Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin, Varun Aaron, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Karn Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Abul Hasan, Imrul Kayes, Jubair Hossain, Litton Das, Mohammad Shahid, Mominul Haque, Nasir Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan, Shuvagata Hom, Soumya Sarkar, Taijul Islam, Mahmudullah.last_img read more

Emery slams refs after PSG collapse

first_imgReal Madrid v PSG Emery slams referees after PSG collapse against Madrid Joe Wright Last updated 1 year ago 07:54 2/15/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(2) Real Madrid v PSG Real Madrid PSG UEFA Champions League Videos The Spanish manager was clearly upset with what he considered to be unbalanced officiating as his side fell to a 3-1 loss in the first leg Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery was left fuminig at the referee after his side threw away a lead to lose 3-1 to Real Madrid on Wednesday .Adrien Rabiot gave the visitors the lead at the Santiago Bernabeu before a Cristiano Ronaldo double and a strike from Marcelo earned the Champions League holders a first-leg advantage in their last-16 tie.Ronaldo’s first goal, his 100th in the competition for Madrid , came from the penalty spot after referee Gianluca Rocchi penalised Giovani Lo Celso for pulling back Toni Kroos inside the area. Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Madrid survived a scare of their own in the second half when the ball struck the upper arm of captain Sergio Ramos in the area, and Emery felt his side were not given fair treatment by the officials.”I have conflicting feelings,” he told a news conference. “The 1-1 strengthened them after a very debatable decision by the referee. The small details didn’t help us.”After that, we were better with the ball and when we had control we always had the ambition to score a second goal. “A debatable referee call opened the possibility of a comeback. And with that encouragement [after their second goal], they made it 3-1.”I’ve been told there could have been a handball by Ramos. I didn’t see it but they suggested it was.”If you give the first one, the second one is too. It’s your job and if it’s a penalty, you have to blow for it.”It’s not a question of justification. I think we could have come back if the refereeing decisions don’t go the other way.”Despite the unfavourable result, Emery insists he was happy with his side’s display and is confident they can mount a comeback in the return fixture at Parc des Princes next month.Emery quote“Madrid can hurt you with fast transitions. If we had been more accurate and if the referee had been a more balanced judge, we could have drawn or even won the game,” he said.”They’re the favourites because they’re the holders and they’ve won it three times out of the last four, but we have the capability to overcome them.”The final score is obviously not positive, but we can come back from it. And my team played very well, I am very happy with them.”The result makes you look at things in a different way. We have to be optimistic ahead of the second leg, and play again as we did today, when we created a lot of chances.”Madrid will make the trip to France for the second leg on March 6.last_img read more
