Forensic science, which has fascinated generations with its unravelling of gruesome crime mysteries, is being put under the microscope in an exhibition of real criminal investigations in London. “Forensics: The anatomy of crime” at the Wellcome Collection traces the art of forensic inquiry, spanning 18th-century Japanese artistic studies of decomposition to Victorian murder cases. One of the hundreds of exhibition pieces on display from February 26 to June 21 is a miniature crime scene of disturbing realism laid out in a dollhouse. The front door is ajar, a newspaper rests casually on a chair, while on a sofa lies a corpse. Created in the 1940s by investigative pioneer Frances Glessner Lee, the dollhouse poses the question “what happened, and who is the murderer?” It was used to teach investigators to use more systematic approaches to gathering evidence, and is still used as an example by forensic investigators. Such approaches to solving crime became prominent in the 19th and 20th centuries and continue to inspire popular novels and films. “Ever since the early crime novels of the 19th century, the cultural fascination with death and detection has continued to grow,” said museum curator Lucy Shanahan. The interest is “encapsulated in the […]

The growth of cyber crime and why it may take a Manhattan Project-scale response to stop

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Examples are easy. In December, malicious software allowed bank robbers to take as much as $1 billion from institutions in 30 countries. In November, Sony had that little problem with North Korea. In October, hackers snagged 40 million credit and debit card numbers from Target. A few months before that, computer systems at Canada’s National Research Council suffered a massive hit by a cyberattacker. The question is what we can do to stop the spies and cyber criminals? Marc Goodman, a former beat cop who specializes in technology and law enforcement, attempts an answer in his new book Future Crimes: Everyone is Connected, Everyone is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It. He spoke to National Post‘s Rachel Greenspan from his home in Southern California. How do you begin to attribute attacks like the recent hack on more than 100 banks around the world to specific groups of people? It’s a problem, both at the criminal level and at the nation-state level. Any decent bad guy will obfuscate their online traffic. So if I’m China and I want to hack the U.S., I’m not going to launch a bunch of bits towards Washington from People’s Liberation Army headquarters in Beijing. […]

DULUTH, Minn. – Prosecutors have added a new, more serious charge in the case against a former Duluth and Fargo firefighter accused of sexually assaulting an infant and distributing child pornography. Caleb Stuart Lofald, 33, now faces a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct – a count that carries a maximum of 30 years in prison. That’s in additional to the four lesser charges he already was facing. The charges allege that Lofald sexually assaulted a 4-month-old child at his Hermantown home and distributed photographs of the assault from a computer at a Duluth fire hall. He’s also accused of surreptitiously recording a 6-year-old boy and an adult female in various stages of undress at his home. Lofald’s employment with the city ended on Feb. 2 without severance pay, said Daniel Fanning, the city’s communications and policy director. He had previously been on paid administrative leave after a search warrant was executed at his home and at the Duluth Fire Department’s Fire Station 7 on Nov. 20. A forensic search of computers seized at both locations allegedly turned up 11 images depicting the assault of the infant, as well as video recordings of the boy and an adult woman. Lofald […]

A Philadelphia court case is shining a light on the intersection of technology and crime in the city.Leonard Monroe is charged with arson, stalking and aggravated assault in connection with a firebombing in East Germantown. During his preliminary hearing this week, Detective Steven Parkinson testified that investigators tracked down Monroe after connecting his cell phone to threatening, anonymous text messages sent through the app Pinger. After registering, the free program provides users with a third-party, “fictitious” phone number. “It couldn’t have come from any other phone,” explained Parkinson during Monday’s proceedings. Philadelphia Sgt. Eric Gripp said the department has fielded a number of cases like Monroe’s. He expects more. Whether they use lesser-known apps such as Pinger or household names including Facebook and Craigslist, criminals continue to turn to technology to hide their identities and illegal activities. Problem is, said Gripp, it’s not that hard for police to peel off that layer of secrecy and make an arrest. “We just put in a request with these companies, they send it to us and a lot of times it comes right back to a home address once we have the IP address,” said Gripp. Circumstantial evidence typically takes care of the […]

‘Frozen Zoo’ saving endangered species

Frozen zoo In this day and age, it’s not uncommon to hear about endangered species dying across the globe. According to WWF, there is about 1.4 and 1.8 million scientifically identified species on our planet. Of those species, approximately 200 to 2,000 extinctions occur each year. Some of these species include the recently extinct Hawaiian po’ouli bird, the Tasmanian tiger, and China’s baiji dolphin. These numbers are staggering and reveal just how imperative the need to preserve other endangered species.

The San Diego Zoo seems to have a plausible solution to the extinction issue: the Frozen Zoo. Since the loss of its 42-year-old northern white rhinoceros to cancer this past December, researchers at the zoo have been working non-stop on trying to save as much genetic material from as many endangered species as possible. Sperm, eggs, blood, and cells, or more specifically, pluripotent stem cells, are crucial to the preservation of endangered species.

The Frozen Zoo, founded in 1972, was designed as a genetic bank. The idea behind the Frozen Zoo is to freeze genetic material in liquid nitrogen so that, in case a member of an endangered species were to die off, their cells and DNA would be beneficial in genetic rescue and population sustainability. The Frozen Zoo has been continually archived for 40 years with the hope that the preserved cells could be used to clone endangered species and sustain a healthy population.

While some view the San Diego Zoo’s efforts as noble, other critics don’t seem to be on the same page. Some question if the Frozen Zoo is worth the millions of dollars being spent of its research and genetic collection. Others wonder if such emphasis should be put on endangered animals instead of on other issues such as global warming, pollution, and other essential topics. Another viewpoint is that the efforts to save such a small number of a species are hardly worth the time and money.

Still, the San Diego Zoo and the researchers working on the Frozen Zoo firmly believe their work is vital and should be acknowledged. “While we are aware of the challenges that face these research efforts, we are confident that retaining genetic diversity in small populations can contribute to their sustainability; it is this hope that drives us on,” said a statement on the San Diego Zoo website. The zoo sincerely believes their work could potentially bring back species that were thought to be long lost and reestablish entire populations such as, the giant panda and the Chinese monal pheasant.

Successful trials such as these can’t negate the impact of the Frozen Bank, but what about other species? Is there truly hope for them? Only one thing is certain, as scientific knowledge and technology advances over the course of time, the possibilities for genetic rescue and reestablishment seem possible.

Cookie? Spam? Hacker? 11 everyday tech terms and their surprising origins

index

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Many of the words we use in the modern-day tech lexicon have surprising origins. OK, so the mouse is obvious, because it looks like a mouse. But we bet a lot of you didn’t know that the Bluetooth you use to pair your phone with a wireless headset was named after a 10th century Danish monarch who enjoyed blueberries? Read on for a little tech etymology lesson. Spam What is it? Unwanted and persistent emails, messages and communications from content providers or advertisers. Where did it come from? While this sounds like an obvious one – the Spam meat product is as undesirable to many as all those annoying messages and emails – that’s not actually the case. The first usage of Spam in a tech sense originates from a classic Monty Python sketch. During the skit, every item on a café menu features the tinned spiced ham, complete with Spam-obsessed Vikings singing its praises. Spam, wonderful Spam! What is it? An internet or social media user who deliberately posts inflammatory content in order to elicit a response. Where did it come from: Although it can often seem like an apt description, the origin of troll – in the modern […]

Zimbabwe ICT Policy, cyber-crime bill are nowhere in sight

Nelson-Chamisa1

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

It’s been 9 years since the Zimbabwean government made a pledge to come up with legislation to curb cyber crime. Of course, there’s no point in holding on to political pledges really. It’s just that it helps give a clear indication of how long we’ve been kicking an issue around. Now that we are in 2015, what has been done to make this a reality? Today we attended a round table discussion on the crafting of the cybercrime bill. The event (hosted by Media Centre) was meant as a discussion point for the potential impacts of the cybersecurity bill on freedom of expression, access to information and the right to privacy to general citizens and the Civil society. It was opened up to different stakeholders in ICT and cyber legislation like POTRAZ, media practitioners, Internet Service Providers and bloggers. Unfortunately, the ISPs and POTRAZ didn’t show up, however, there was representation from legislature. The main delivery was made by Nelson Chamisa, the former Minister of ICT and current chairman of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services. Besides running through the basic aspects of the proposed bill and emphasizing how the bill had to come after a new Zimbabwe […]
