What to do if you think your datas been hacked as another

first_imgTORONTO — Credit card company Capital One Financial Corp. has announced a major data breach that has compromised information from about six million Canadians, including social insurance numbers for about a million customers.Here’s what you should do if you think your data may have been compromised:First is to try and determine if your data has been stolen or used by hackers.Capital One says it will notify affected customers through a variety of ways, but doesn’t specify how. It does, however, note that it won’t call individuals about it so be wary of any calls about the breach. Also be on guard for emails about it that ask for information or contain links to websites.While waiting for word from Capital One, you should check your financial accounts for any unusual activity, and consider signing up for alerts to track activity in your financial accounts.If you notice any suspicious activity, the Canadian government recommends you immediately report it to the police, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, and inform Service Canada. You should also report the activity to your bank and creditors by phone and in writing.You should also sign up for monitoring services from Equifax and TransUnion, which Capital One says it will provide for free to everyone affected.Capital One says no credit card numbers were compromised in the breach, but you could consider asking for a new card and number, or even close your account.The federal government, however, does not issue new social insurance numbers if they’re lost or stolen. It may issue a new SIN if there is proof that it was used fraudulently.Customers in the United States also have the option of putting a freeze on their credit reports, but that’s not an option in Canada.Even if your data isn’t compromised, the incident is a good reminder to review your personal data practices, including a review of your online accounts and a possible updating of passwords.Remember that you don’t need to give out your social insurance number when applying for a credit card. In the private sector, you only need to give out your SIN to your employer for income tax and benefits and to financial institutions for accounts that pay interest.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) opened its Emergency Operation Centre this weekend to Prince Harry of the United Kingdom, who got a firsthand look at how the UN agency uses mapping technology to coordinate relief and rescue, such as during the Haiti earthquake in January, from New York.“In all emergencies, it is children that are the hardest hit,” said Hilde Johnson, Deputy Executive Director of UNICEF, who yesterday accompanied Prince Harry on his visit.In a statement, UNICEF said it had invited Prince Harry to visit the operations centre due to his interest in learning how aid organizations function during emergencies.The Prince is a patron of a non-governmental organization based out of the United Kingdom which provides frequently updated situation maps showing where relief help is more urgently needed. During the tour, Prince Harry met key staff and saw some of the emergency supplies UNICEF sends to children in crises, including the “School in a box” kit which contains emergency learning materials for forty children. UNICEF responds to an average of 200 emergencies every year, and this year has appealed for more than $1.2 billion to continue its life saving work in 28 of the world’s most pressing cities. “Without it, children will continue to suffer. We cannot allow that to happen,” Ms. Hilde added.The Prince’s visit to the UN complex in New York comes one week before his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, is scheduled to address the 192-member UN General Assembly.As the head of State of the United Kingdom and 15 other UN Member States, this will be only the second time that the Queen addresses the General Assembly since 1957. read more

No jail time for pediatrician convicted of sexual assault

Disgraced pediatrician Daniel Marshall was free to walk out of court after his sentencing hearing today. In December, Marshall was found guilty of the sexual interference and sexual assault of a 15 year old patient in 1991. Even though it’s Marshall’s second conviction for sexual assault, he won’t be spending any time behind bars.Supreme Court Justice James Ramsay issued him a $5000 fine, instead of any jail time. Before the decision, crown attorney Jeffrey Levy questioned forensic psychiatry expert Dr. Graham Glancy about the risk Marshall would pose to the community if he were released. Glancy testified that Daniel Marshall was a low risk to re-offend. Stating “it is rare for sexual offenders to commit a sexual offense after the age of 60” and “there is no conclusion medically why he committed the crimes.”The crown argued that Marshall has shown no remorse for his crimes and they’re concerned he will re-offend. They asked for a sentence of 9-12 months to show doctors that if they abuse patients, there will be significant consequences. In making his decision, Justice James Ramsay considered the effects on Marshall’s medical career, his livelihood and the shame he’ll face in the community.Ramsay admitted it’s rare to impose a fine for a crime like this, but he felt this is that rare case. He said:“There is not much wrong with him psychologically, he just needs to behave himself, which he has for the last 23 years.”Daniel Marshall was told he must submit DNA and blood samples as a condition of his sentence. Marshall had previously served part of an 8 month sentence for sexually assaulting a different teenage boy. The Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons has not set a date yet for their penalty phase. It’s expected Marshall’s currently suspended medical licence will be revoked for good. read more

Gem Diamonds says Letšeng diamond mine unaffected by Lesotho troubles

first_imgGem Diamonds, owner and operator of the Letšeng diamond mine in Lesotho, released a statement on Monday saying it did not anticipate any impact on operations from the political crisis in the tiny land-locked nation. “Gem Diamonds Ltd (GEMD) has seen media reports of army activity in Maseru, Lesotho but, at this stage,  our management in Lesotho report that Maseru is calm and there is no disruption whatsoever at the company’s Letšeng mine which is situated some 4 hours from Maseru in the mountains. It is not anticipated that there will be any impact upon operations at Letšeng nor upon any of the company’s sales and marketing operations in respect of the Letšeng production.”Prime Minister Thomas Thabane fled Lesotho for South Africa on Saturday after the military in Lesotho disarmed police in the capital, Maseru, in what the prime minister called a military coup.Talks between the different factions mediated by South African President Jacob Zuma appeared to have some success with Lesotho’s leaders agreeing to a roadmap with a “clear timeline” to re-open parliament.Since it took control in 2006 the mine the company has produced four of the top 20 largest white gem quality diamonds on record.The Letšeng mine, located in the Maluti mountains in the Kingdom of Lesotho at an average elevation of 3 100 m above sea level, is one of the highest diamond mines in the world. The mine has achieved the highest average dollar per carat of any kimberlite diamond mine in the world, with its regular production of large, top-quality diamonds.In August 2011, a 550 ct white diamond, the Letšeng Star became the fourth major recovery at Letšeng since Gem Diamonds’ 2006 takeover. It was preceded by the 478 ct Leseli la Letšeng (‘Light of Letšeng’) white diamond in 2008, the 603 ct Lesotho Promise white diamond in 2006, and the 493 ct Letšeng Legacy white diamond in 2007. Add the 601 ct Lesotho Brown, recovered in 1960, and Letšeng has produced five of the 20 largest documented rough white gem diamonds on record.GEMD acquired Letšeng in July 2006. The Group owns 70% of the mine in partnership with the Government of the Kingdom of Lesotho, which owns the remaining 30%.Letšeng processes ore from two kimberlite pipes, Main and Satellite, both bearing extremely low grade ore (under 2 ct/100 t), as well as from existing stockpiles. Since its acquisition, Letšeng’s annual production has risen from 55,000 ct in 2006 to 95,053 ct in 2013, with a peak of 114,350 ct produced in 2012.last_img read more

BNP to stage protest if gas prices hiked Fakhrul

first_imgBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File PhotoBangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday warned that their party will not accept any gas price hike as it will only inflict sufferings on people, reports UNB.”Our position is clear about the government’s move to hike the gas prices. Neither we nor the country’s people will accept it,” he said.Fakhrul issued the warning at a press conference at the party’s Naya Paltan central office after a joint meeting of BNP and its associate bodies.He also said their party will take all-out protest programmes if the government increases the gas tariffs.About the Bangladesh part of US State Department’s annual country report on human rights practices, the BNP leader said it has depicted the real scenario of the country’s human rights condition and 30-December polls.The US 2018 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices released on 13 March said unlawful or political killings, forced disappearances, life-threatening prison conditions, limitation of freedom of speech, negative government pressure on and fear of reprisal by press and media, and impunity for security force abuses were the most significant human rights problems in Bangladesh last year.On elections and political participation, the report termed the 30-December parliamentary elections a “lopsided” one and said it was considered to be marred by irregularities, including ballot-box stuffing and intimidation of opposition polling agents and voters.Fakhrul said not only the US State Department but also all other global media outlets, including CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera, The Guardian and The Washington Post clearly said it was not an election at all on 30 December, 2018. “They also said people’s opinion and desire were not reflected in the election as they couldn’t cast their votes.”Even, the BNP leader said Indian media depicted what happened in the election.He alleged that Bangladeshi media could not properly report on the election due to a serious censorship on them. “Still, they’re vocal about it as much as possible for them””We’re very respectful to the media, and we thank them for the role they’re playing in such an adverse situation,” Fakhrul said.He alleged that the government has indulged in enforced disappearance, extrajudicial killing and arrest of its opponents to establish one-party rule.”One-party rule has been established in the country. Now people have no security and they don’t get justice. We’ve been witnessing for nearly 10-12 years that whom the government doesn’t like are being killed and made disappeared,” the BNP leader observed.last_img read more

How to prevent errors while using utilities for loading data in Teradata

first_imgIn today’s tutorial we will assist you to overcome the errors that arise while loading, deleting or updating large volumes of data using Teradata Utilities. This article is an excerpt from Teradata Cookbook co-authored by Abhinav Khandelwal and Rajsekhar Bhamidipati. This book provides recipes to simplify the daily tasks performed by database administrators (DBA) along with providing efficient data warehousing solutions in Teradata database system. Resolving FastLoad error 2652 When data is being loaded via FastLoad, a table lock is placed on the target table. This means that the table is unavailable for any other operation. A lock on a table is only released when FastLoad encounters the END LOADING command, which terminates phase 2, the so-called application phase. FastLoad may get terminated in phase 1 due to any of the following reasons: Load script results in failure (error code 8 or 12) Load script is aborted by admin or some other session FastLoad fails due to bad record or file Forgetting to add end loading statement in script If so, it keeps a lock on the table, which needs to be released manually. In this recipe, we will see the steps to release FastLoad locks. Getting ready Identify the table on which FastLoad is been ended prematurely and tables are in locked state. You need to have valid credentials for the Teradata Database. Execute the dummy FastLoad script from the same user or the user which has write access to the lock table. A user requires the following privileges/rights in order to execute the FastLoad: SELECT and INSERT (CREATE and DROP or DELETE) access to the target or loading table CREATE and DROP TABLE on error tables SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE are required privileges for the user PUBLIC on the restart log table (SYSADMIN.FASTLOG). There will be a row in the FASTLOG table for each FastLoad job that has not completed in the system. How to do it… Open a notepad and create the following script: .LOGON, dbc; /* Vaild system name and credentials toyour system */.DATABASE Database_Name; /* database under which locked table is */erorfiles errortable_name, uv_tablename /* same error table name asin script */begin loading locked_table; /* table which is getting 2652 error */.END LOADING; /* to end pahse 2 and release the lock */.LOGOFF; Save it as dummy_fl.txt. Open the windows Command Prompt and execute this using the FastLoad command, as shown in the following screenshot: This dummy script with no insert statement should release the lock on the target Table. Execute Select on the locked table to see if the lock is released on the table. How it works… As FastLoad is designed to work only on empty tables, it becomes necessary that the loading of the table finishes in one go. If the load script is errored out prematurely in phase 2, without encountering the END loading command, it leaves a lock on loading the table. Fastload locks can’t be released via the HUT utility, as there are no technical lock on the table. To execute FastLoad, the following are some requirements: Log table: FastLoad puts its progress information in the fastlog table. EMPTY TABLE: FastLoad needs the table to be empty before inserting rows into that table. TWO ERROR TABLES: FastLoad requires two error tables to be created; you just need to name them, and no ddl is required. The first error table records any translation or constraint violation error, whereas the second error table captures errors related to the duplication of values for Unique Primary Indexes (UPI). After the completion of FastLoad, you can analyze these error tables as to why the records got rejected. There’s more… If this does not fix the issue, you need to drop the target table and error tables associated with it. Before proceeding with dropping tables, check with the administrator to abort any FastLoad sessions associated with this table. Resolving MLOAD error 2571 MLOAD works in five phases, unlike FastLoad, which only works in two phases. MLOAD can fail in either phase three or four. Figure shows 5 stages of MLOAD. Preliminary: Basic setup. Syntax checking, establishing session with the Teradata Database, creation of error tables (two error tables per target table), and the creation of work tables and log tables are done in this phase. DML Transaction phase: Request is parse through PE and a step plan is generated. Steps and DML are then sent to AMP and stored in appropriate work tables for each target table. Input data sent will be stored in these work tables, which will be applied to the target table later on. Acquisition phase: Unsorted data is sent to AMP in blocks of 64K. Rows are hashed by PI and sent to appropriate AMPs. Utility places locks on target tables in preparation for the application phase to apply rows in target tables. Application phase: Changes are applied to target tables and NUSI subtables. Lock on table is held in this phase. Cleanup phase: If the error code of all the steps is 0, MLOAD successfully completes and releases all the locks on the specified table. This being the case, all empty error tables, worktables, and the log table are dropped. Getting ready Identify the table which is getting affected by error 2571. Make sure no host utility is running on this table and the load job is in a failed state for this table. How to do it… Check on viewpoint for any active utility job for this table. If you find any active job, let it complete. If there is a reason that you need to release the lock, first abort all the sessions of the host utility from viewpoint. Ask your administrator to do it. Execute the following command: RELEASE MLOAD ;> If you get a Not able to release MLOAD Lock error, execute the following Command: /* Release lock in application phase */RELEASE MLOAD in apply; Once the locks are released you need to drop all the associated error tables, the log table, and work tables with it. Re-execute MLOAD after correcting the error. How it works… The Mload utility places a lock in table headers to alert other utilities that a MultiLoad is in session for this table. They include: Acquisition lock: DML allows all DDL allows DROP only Application lock: DML allows SELECT with ACCESS only DDL allows DROP only There’s more… If the release lock statement still gives an error and does not release the lock on the table, you need to use SELECT with the ACCESS lock to copy the content of the locked table to a new one and drop the locked tables. If you start receiving the error 7446 Mload table %ID cannot be released because NUSI exists, you need to drop all the NUSI on the table and use ALTER Table to nonfallback to accomplish the task. Resolving failure 7547 This error is associated with the UPDATE statement, which could be SQL based or could be in MLOAD. Various times, while updating the set of rows in a table, the update fails on Failure 7547 Target row updated by multiple source rows. This error will happen when you update the target with multiple rows from the source. This means there are duplicated values present in the source tables. Getting ready Let’s create sample volatile tables and insert values into them. After that, we will execute the UPDATE command, which will fail to result in 7547: Create a TARGET TABLE with the following DDL and insert values into it: ** TARGET TABLE**create volatile table accounts(CUST_ID,CUST_NAME,Sal)with dataprimary index(cust_id)insert values (1,’will’,2000);insert values (2,’bekky’,2800);insert values (3,’himesh’,4000); Create a SOURCE TABLE with the following DDL and insert values into it: ** SOURCE TABLE**create volatile table Hr_payhike(CUST_ID,CUST_NAME,Sal_hike) with dataprimary index(cust_id)insert values (1,’will’,2030);insert values (1,’bekky’,3800);insert values (3,’himesh’,7000); Execute the MLOAD script. Following the snippet from the MLOAD script, only update part (which will fail): /* Snippet from MLOAD update */UPDATE ACCFROM ACCOUNTS ACC , Hr_payhike SUPDSET Sal= TUPD.Sal_hikeWHEREAcc.CUST_ID = SUPD.CUST_ID;Failure: Target row updated by multiple source rows How to do it… Check for duplicate values in the source table using the following: /*Check for duplicate values in source table*/SELECT cust_id,count(*)from Hr_payhikegroup by 1 order by 2 desc The output will be generated with CUST_ID =1 and has two values which are causing errors. The reason for this is that while updating the TARGET table, the optimizer won’t be able to understand from which row it should update the TARGET row. Who’s salary will be updated Will or Bekky? To resolve the error, execute the following update query: /* Update part of MLOAD */UPDATE ACCFROM ACCOUNTS ACC ,( SELECTCUST_ID,CUST_NAME,SAL_HIKEFROMHr_payhikeQUALIFY ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY CUST_ID ORDER BYCUST_NAME,SAL_HIKE DESC)=1) SUPDSET Sal= SUPD.Sal_hikeWHEREAcc.CUST_ID = SUPD.CUST_ID; Now, the update will run without error. How it works… Failure will happen when you update the target with multiple rows from the source. If you defined a primary index column for your target, and if those columns are in an update query condition, this error will occur. To further resolve this, you can delete the duplicate from the source table itself and execute the original update without any modification. But if the source data can’t be changed, then you need to change the update statement.

Ticos apathetic toward 2014 presidential candidates

first_imgNearly half of Costa Rican voters have not yet committed to supporting any candidate in the 2014 presidential elections, according to the latest poll conducted by research firm UNIMER for the daily La Nación.Less than a year before the elections, 32 percent of voters say they do not know who to vote for, while 22 percent say they will not vote for anyone.This means that if elections were held today, the voting figures would not be enough to elect any of the current candidates.To be elected president of Costa Rica a candidate needs at least 40 percent of total voters, otherwise a runoff must be held between the top two candidates.This only happened in 2002, when President Abel Pacheco beat Rolando Araya.According to the UNIMER poll, San José Mayor Johnny Araya from the ruling National Liberation Party has 27 percent support of potential voters, while Epsy Campbell from the Citizen Action Party has 4 percent and Otto Guevara from the Libertarian Movement has 3 percent.At the time of the survey neither Rodolfo Hernández from the Social Christian Unity Party, nor lawmaker José María Villalta, from the Broad Front Party, had announced their presidential bids.The poll was conducted from Jan. 24-Feb. 4, and included 1,200 citizens throughout the country.
