Share on Facebook Australia sport Richard Parkin Topics Behind some of these transfers that make short-term common sense there’s even more at play to be enthusiastic about.Sydney’s capture of Reza Ghoochannejhad for example is another dipped toe into the market for Asian players, a welcome development in the aftermath of an Asian Cup that highlighted the A-League’s reluctance to capitalise on talent within its confederation. The knock-on effect of signing the former Heerenveen and Charlton Athletic forward is a deeper squad for Sydney’s Asian Champions League campaign.“The fact he qualifies as an Asian player under the AFC Champions League three-plus-one ruling is going to be a huge benefit to us and vital to our challenge for the trophy,” explained Sydney’s head coach Steve Corica last week.The headline transfer of the month was the return to the A-League of Jamie Maclaren. While the Socceroo may be frustrated at another stint in his homeland after failing to secure his future in Europe, the move is a potential game-changer for City. Melbourne City Share via Email Back him or sack him – Wanderers hierarchy must share the blame for Markus Babbel’s ‘frustration’ Twitter Share on Twitter What the new signings have already done is breathe new life into a premiership race that was losing its spark, and adds fuel to the fire that with six such strong and evenly-matched finalists this year’s playoffs could be among the most competitive and unpredictable yet. Facebook Following the Bruno Fornaroli debacle City’s need for a No 9 has seen them resort to plugging the hole with fullbacks. Now the side with the joint-best defensive record in the league has a proven A-League goalscorer and enough matches remaining to shake up the finals pecking order.Moreover, for City the deal hints at a possible change in approach to squad building. Maclaren is 25 and has signed on until 2023, meaning he could finally be the player around whom the club can build long-term.He doesn’t the fit the mould of a young prospect in need of some CFG polish before selling-on, nor is he on the kind of short-term deal that has exposed City to enormous player churn. It is simply coincidence that Maclaren was signed on the day the composition of the New Leagues Working Group was announced but it’s difficult to avoid the symbolism, and how taken together both could reflect a major shift in how the CFG conducts its business in an independent A-League.Less eye-catching deals have also strengthened championship contenders Melbourne Victory and Wellington Phoenix. Although the addition of Cillian Sheridan to Mark Rudan’s squad was perhaps worthy of more attention at the time considering his CV and Rudan’s immediate success in the transfer market. The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email. Decisive activity during the mid-season transfer window has the potential to transform the remainder of the A-League season. What’s more, the ambition shown across the board is already impacting positively on next season.The recent January sales were full of elegant solutions. You didn’t require a PhD in list management to identify that Adelaide United and Melbourne City were crying out for strikers, nor that Sydney FC would benefit from a broader range of attacking options, but in a salary-capped competition resolving even the most glaring of problems isn’t always straightforward. That all three accomplished their goals decisively makes them all considerably more threatening for the run home. A-League Fornaroli exile to continue as City eye A-League return for Maclaren Reuse this content Share on LinkedIn Perth Glory features It hasn’t just been the title challengers that have strengthened impressively. Kwame Yeboah and Mitchell Duke are both excellent pick-ups for Western Sydney and offer beleaguered Wanderers fans cause for optimism when they return to home comforts next season.2019-20 is also when Fornaroli is expected to next appear on an A-League pitch after he was reportedly handed an escape route out of Melbourne City by Perth Glory. The ladder leaders already boast an enviable squad, full of quality, experience and depth, but bringing the Uruguayan west shows that Glory’s leaders are not resting on their laurels. That axis of CEO Tony Pignata, GM of Football Jacob Burns, and coach Tony Popovic, have quickly elevated Glory to the upper echelon of A-League back offices.Even sides with little left to play for this season have inadvertently fueled anticipation for the next campaign. By sneaking Matt Millar away from Central Coast the Jets have added plenty of spice to the already tasty F3 Derby; although after initially banishing Millar from training Mariners boss Mike Mulvey has since done his best to ease tensions.Western Melbourne Group don’t even have a name yet, but they have boosted their appeal with the signing of Greek international Panagiotis Kone.It remains to be seen how much of an impact these new recruits will have on the destination of silverware over the coming months. This time last year Terry Antonis strolled in to Melbourne Victory desperate for first-team minutes and ended the grand final a club legend, while Riley McGree went from an injury replacement for Jake Adelson to a Puskas Awards nominee.

Though he has been keen for them to sign more experienced players such as Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Leicester’s Harry Maguire, United have been earmarking younger players with potential to grow such as Kabak and Porto’s Eder Militao.
Press Trust of India New DelhiApril 30, 2019UPDATED: April 30, 2019 16:16 IST Amit Panghal has got the better of Hasanboy Dusmatov twice (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAmit Panghal defeated Hasanboy Dusmatov of Uzbekistan twice in the recent pastPanghal got the better of Dusmatov in the Asian Games and Asian ChampionshipsPanghal said that reigning Olympic champion Dusmatov is “bit scared of him”Beating an Olympic champion for two consecutive times is no mean feat but Indian boxer Amit Panghal says it’s no big deal either as Uzbek ‘golden boy’ Hasanboy Dusmatov is now a “bit scared of him”.Panghal defeated world silver-medallist and Rio Olympic champion Dusmatov for the first time in September last year, the stage being the Asian Games finale in Jakarta.He repeated the feat at the Asian Championships, ousting him from medal contention altogether with a quarterfinal win in the event which concluded in Bangkok last week. Dusmatov came into this edition as a two-time gold-medallist.”Kuch nahi hai (It’s nothing). I think he was a bit intimidated by me this time, his game wasn’t upto it,” he told PTI with a grin on his face.”Thoda down tha mere saamne (He seemed a bit down),” he added.Panghal is having a stellar run ever since the bronze he won in the 2017 Asian Championships. He made the quarters of the world championships that year, losing a close one to Dusmatov.That was followed by a gold at the India Open in 2018 and also the Strandja Memorial in Bulgaria. A silver in the Commonwealth Games came soon after, succeeded by the gold at the Asiad in Indonesia.The form carried on this year too and he won a gold at the Strandja Memorial again before the top finish at the Asian Championship. In between these two golds, Panghal moved from 49kg to the 52kg category.He had said that the transition would not be easy but if there were any difficulties, they didn’t show in his performance in Bangkok.advertisement”You can say that things worked out. Plus the fact that most of the guys I fought were also the ones I used to encounter in 49kg. So, luckily all of us made the transition at the same time. There was familiarity,” he said.He has a packed schedule ahead of him as he gears up for the world championships in Russia, scheduled from September 7. The event will be the first Olympic qualifying event.”I have a packed schedule, which includes training trips to Italy and Ireland. Plus there is the India Open later this month (starting May 20 in Guwahati). So it’s a good build-up,” he said.Also Read | G Sathiyan becomes first Indian to break into top-25 of table tennis world rankingsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Removal of the Domtar tank from the Coke Ovens site has moved toa new phase. Contractor Clean Harbours Canada Inc. has completed the removalof tarry liquids from the tank, and will now excavate the solidmaterial that remains. This includes miscellaneous debris such astires, shopping carts, and railway ties that were dumped into theopen-topped tank over the years, as well as hardened hydrocarbonsand gravel. A high hoe inside the temporary building that surrounds the tankwill dig out the solid material and place it in closed railwaycontainers for shipment off site. Periodic heating of the tank contents to ease removal of the tarhas ended. “That should all but eliminate the production of naphthalene,”said Wayne Vervaet, the Sydney Tar Ponds Agency engineeroverseeing the project. Once the tank has been emptied, the contract calls for CleanHarbours to dismantle and remove the tank and the temporaryenclosure. The results of air monitoring at the tank removal project areposted daily on the tar ponds agency website at gov.ns.ca/stpa .
Casablanca- Mohamed Sajid was elected Saturday by an overwhelming majority as the new Secretary General of the Constitutional Union Party.During the 5th National Congress of the party, held in Casablanca, Sajid captured 825 votes, far ahead of Anwar Zyne (25 votes), Bouchra Barijal (13 votes) and Mohamed Bensaidi (11 votes).The National Congress also elected Chaoui Belaassal as President of the National Council, as well as members of the political bureau of the party. The Council members also unanimously elected the outgoing Secretary General of the party, Mohamed Abied, as honorary president of the party.
20 August 2008Allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) against personnel serving with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) have fallen, according to a new report from the mission. Five allegations were made between January and June 2008, as compared to the second half of 2007 when nine were reported.Ellen Margrethe Løj, who heads UNMIL, said that “we are happy with the number of reported SEA allegations has gone down,” but noted that “we are concerned about the possibility of under-reporting.”She added that the mission will ensure that the necessary disciplinary measures are taken if any misconduct is proven.UNMIL personnel are instructed to follow the Secretary-General’s zero-tolerance policy on SEA, and receive compulsory training upon induction. Between January and June of this year, over 23,000 of UNMIL’s military personnel went though an integrated mission programme on abuse.To sensitize Liberian communities about SEA, the mission has trained 700 members of 45 local organizations on prevention and reporting, who in turn will educate their own communities.These training sessions – targeting people in close proximity to UN installations and border areas – were conducted by UNMIL’s Conduct and Discipline Unit (CDU) and focused on raising awareness of abuse-related issues and boosting local communities’ capacity to respond to SEA incidents involving the mission’s personnel.As of 31 July, UNMIL had 12,815 uniformed personnel, 1,086 police, 496 international civilian personnel, 939 local staff and 210 UN Volunteers (UNV).
27 August 2010An independent United Nations human rights expert has called on all Somalis to help prevent the kind of bloodshed witnessed this week when 33 people were killed during a hotel bombing in the capital, and to assist in bringing those responsible to justice. “I urge a grassroots effort to prevent a repetition of this atrocious act,” said Shamsul Bari, the Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Somalia, referring to the 24 August attack on the Muna Hotel in Mogadishu.Four members of Somalia’s Transitional Federal Parliament died in the attack, which was strongly condemned by UN officials and the Security Council, and is the latest act of violence to hit the strife-torn Horn of Africa nation. “This deplorable attack once again demonstrates that the extremists will stop at nothing in their desperate attempt to seize power by force,” said Dr. Bari. “However, the perpetrators of these desperate acts during the holy month of Ramadan will never win the hearts and minds of Somali people,” he added.Violence in Mogadishu has led to some 3,000 conflict-related casualties so far this year and uprooted around 200,000 people from the city, which has been the scene of ongoing clashes between Government troops and Islamist militant groups, including Al-Shabaab.“I appeal to the international community, as a matter of urgency, to rethink and renew its commitment to giving the protection of civilians and their access to humanitarian assistance the highest priority in Somalia,” said Dr. Bari. In a related development, the head of the UN agency tasked with defending press freedom has deplored the death of Somali journalist Barkhad Awale Adan, who was killed while fixing the transmitter on the roof of his radio station, Hurma Radio, amid fighting on Tuesday.“The Somali press is paying an exorbitant price for the instability prevailing in the country,” Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), stated in a news release. “Combatants must respect journalists’ immunity. Without it, without security, no freedom of expression worthy of the name can exist, even though it is a fundamental human right.”Mr. Adan, 60, was standing on the roof of the radio station, helping a technician to repair the transmitter, when he was hit in the stomach by a bullet, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), a non-governmental organization. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Amy Martin’s 3-year-old twins were sick yet again, and the Anacortes, Washington, mom was fed up. “We were just getting cold after cold,” she says.Her solution: Dietary supplements. She searched online for ideas, then picked up a bottle of elderberry gummies.She wasn’t alone.Google logged over a half-million searches for “elderberry for colds” in the past year, and the market for elderberry products is growing.But Martin soon became disillusioned. Making her sons eat the gummies was a hassle, and they made no appreciable difference in the frequency of her family’s colds. She still gives her sons other supplements, including vitamin D, melatonin and probiotics, but “we do wonder if we are wasting money,” she says.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Martin is one of a growing number of parents who give herbal dietary supplements to their children. Most aren’t designed or marketed for kids: According to Innova Market Insights, a marketing research group of the food-and-beverage industry, just under 5 percent of dietary supplement launches target children. But supplement use among children is much higher.About a third of children in the United States use dietary supplements, according to a nationally representative survey of American children and adolescents. Between 2004 and 2014, participants’ use of herbal and non-vitamin supplements nearly doubled, from 3.7 percent to 6.7 percent in 2013-2014.Fish oil, melatonin and probiotics are the most commonly used dietary supplements outside vitamins.Researchers still know little about whether or how dietary supplements can benefit – or hurt – kids. Studies of herbal and homeopathic remedies can have design flaws, and products can lack randomized clinical trials. Parents often rely on anecdotal evidence instead of reliable medical studies. And decisions to buy and administer vitamins and other products can be swayed by advertising or a parent’s own supplement use.Researchers still know little about whether or how dietary supplements can benefit – or hurt – kidsAccording to a Center for Disease Control and Prevention report, children with parents who use dietary supplements or other complementary health approaches are more likely to use them than kids whose parents do not.“I am always very hesitant to recommend any supplements to patients, even when there is some evidence of effectiveness,” says pediatrician Natalie Muth, a spokeswoman for the American Academy of Pediatrics. “In many cases, there is no evidence of effectiveness.”Nevertheless, kids’ use of herbal supplements continues to rise. So do the number of calls to poison centres. “[Supplement-related calls] have been steadily increasing since 1994,” says Susan Smolinske, director of the New Mexico Poison and Drug Information Center. That’s when legislation went into effect that allows the Food and Drug Administration to intervene only after products are already on the market.“What that created in this essentially almost unregulated environment is an industry gone wild,” says S. Bryn Austin, a public health researcher and professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. “The industry went from 4,000 products on the market when this law was passed to well over 80,000 products on the market.”Austin warns parents that just because a product is on store shelves doesn’t mean it’s safe for children – or even that it contains what it claims on the bottle. The FDA has recalled 12 dietary supplements in 2019 alone; most of the recalls related to mislabeling or undeclared ingredients.Austin and other researchers examined the FDA’s database of unwanted side effects of supplements in children and adolescents, known as adverse events. Of the 977 events reported between 2004 and 2015, about 40 percent involved severe medical outcomes such as hospitalization, disability or death. Supplements that promised energy, weight loss and muscle building were associated with nearly three times the risk of an adverse event than those that did not.“The claims are not true,” Austin says. “These products are not proven to turn anyone into an Olympic athlete or the highest scorer on their team. What they are proven to do is lead to serious adverse events when the products have dangerous ingredients, which too often they do. Parents cannot look at the bottle or box and read the label and know what’s in there.”In a study published in the journal Hepatology Communications this year, researchers analyzed the ingredients of 272 herbal and dietary supplements associated with liver injury. Fifty-one percent of them had ingredients that weren’t listed on the label.Todd Raymond and his daughter Abby, a 14-year-old team USA weightlifter, learned about that risk firsthand last year. After a family friend with a supplement company offered to make the athlete an ambassador for his fitness-related supplements, the Raymonds scoured the ingredient list for substances that might violate anti-doping rules. “Everything looked good to go,” Todd Raymond says. Abby began taking the supplements and promoting the brand.But during a random drug test, she tested positive for ostarine, a non-FDA-approved substance that produces results similar to anabolic steroids. She was sanctioned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and disqualified from medals, points and prizes she earned before the test.“It was devastating,” Todd says. After product testing, the Raymonds learned that the supplements Abby had consumed were contaminated during production.Today, Abby is 15. She has returned to competition, and the Raymonds share their story with other youth athletes through TrueSport, the USADA’s educational program.Jennifer Royer, USADA’s TrueSport and athlete education director, says that the organization has recently seen a rise in supplement use among younger athletes.“Because parents have access to these products at their local grocery store, they assume they’re safe, but the supplement market is unregulated and evidence suggests that the modest regulation in place does little to dissuade companies from manufacturing with ingredients that are prohibited or dangerous,” she says.Adolescents aren’t the only group at risk. Thirty percent of supplement-related emergency room visits between 2004 and 2013 involved children age 10 or younger. The majority were kids who ingested the supplements without parental supervision.“You should be very vigilant about keeping them out of reach until it’s time to dispense them,” Smolinske says. Child-resistant packaging isn’t required for dietary supplements that don’t contain iron.Independent test providers such as ConsumerLab.com and certification programs such as the one offered by NSF can help direct parents toward higher-quality products. “You should look for trusted brands from trusted companies,” says Andrea Wong, vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs for the Council for Responsible Nutrition, a trade association representing dietary supplement manufacturers.So how can a parent responsibly navigate the slippery world of supplements? In written statements, representatives from the FDA and the National Institutes of Health urged parents to communicate with their child’s pediatrician before giving their kids an herbal remedy or other supplement. NIH also offers a series of tip sheets online, including one with questions parents might want to ask health-care providers. Vitamin patches promise to help you gain focus, lose weight or sleep. Do they actually work? Foods are better than pills when it comes to providing vitamins Often, Muth says, parents don’t realize a pediatrician might be able to address their kids’ health concerns in ways that don’t involve supplements.“If a pediatrician learns that a parent is giving a child melatonin as a last-ditch effort to help a child sleep, it creates an opportunity for the family and pediatrician to troubleshoot why the child may be struggling so much,” she says. “Or, if a pediatrician knows that parents are giving their toddler a multivitamin because they are so concerned the child will become malnourished due to picky eating, it creates an opportunity to discuss strategies to help increase a child’s willingness to try new foods.”In turn, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that pediatricians ask patients about which supplements kids are taking.Smolinske’s poison centre handles tens of thousands of calls a year – and she has another reason to second-guess supplements: “Because of my experiences, I worry that giving these drugs to treat a disease may delay a diagnosis or evaluation by a physician. If [parents] decide to go it on their own, they may be ignoring something that should be evaluated by a physician.”During her career, Smolinske has seen children with brain tumours, severe anemia and other life-threatening conditions go untreated because their parent thought an herbal supplement could cure their symptoms.“They think that Dr. Google has all the answers,” she says.
Toronto-based free daily Tonight revamps as a weekly newspaper AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – One of Toronto’s free dailies is revamping itself as a weekly under new owners.Tonight, formerly known as t.o.night, makes the leap from a five-day schedule to publishing only on Thursday starting this week.The move comes as trade publication company Annex Business Media acquires the newspaper for an undisclosed amount.Annex president and CEO Mike Fredericks said Tonight will publish once a week, but that talks are ongoing about moving to a more frequent twice-a-week format.Fredericks, who said he previously owned 10 per cent of the newspaper, now has full ownership through Annex.Tonight has faced heated competition from other free dailies in Toronto, which include Metro and 24 Hours. Fredericks says the costs of daily distribution outweighed the size of the market.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly referred to the daily as T.O. Tonight.

Gazelle, an online store that buys and sells recycled and used electronics, was buying up iPads like crazy when the iPad 2 was released in the beginning of March. Users who wanted the new model were looking for a way to make some money back from their old iPad before they bought the shiny, new tablet. iPads found their way to Gazelle and now the company has launched an iPad-only site, gazelleipads.com, to sell the original models to consumers. From the looks of it, the prices will be hard to beat.When we reported on Gazelle buying up iPads in March, the store was offering sellers $300 for the 16GB WiFi version, and $530 for the 64GB WiFI + 3G version. As we pointed out then, getting $300 for a one-year-old iPad that you paid $500 for is not too shabby.Gazelle opened its pilot program Monday and has started selling previously-owned iPads, which it claims are in “superb cosmetic condition.” This means that screen is immaculate, and besides a few tiny scratches on the body, which Gazelle calls “signs of wear from normal handling,” the iPad will come in its original box with a charger, USB cable, and an instruction manual. The 3G models use AT&T service.As you can see from the prices above, buying an iPad from Gazelle will save you a good amount. If you buy the Apple iPad 64GB WiFi +3G model from Gazelle, you’ll be paying $479.99, whereas you’ll be paying $829 for a WiFi + 3G 64GB iPad 2 from the Apple Store. Of course you’ll miss out on the new components and the slim design, but it’s still a very capable tablet.At the iPad 2’s launch, Gazelle became the site many people flocked to to sell the technology instead of heading over to sites like eBay or Craigslist simply due to the site’s ease. Selling items on eBay and Craigslist takes work. You have to communicate back and forth with the potential buyer, ship it and deal with PayPal (eBay), or meet a stranger (Craigslist) which is always a risky undertaking.If you sold your iPad back in March to Gazelle, you were smart to do so when the demand was high. Selling it now will still give you a decent amount back, but the 16GB WiFi version that was selling for $300 in March is now selling for just $203. The 64GB WiFi +3G version that was selling for $500 in March is now offering $340.May this be a lesson to all iPad 2 owners who will be jumping at the chance to buy an iPad 3. Sell your iPad 2 as soon as you can after the iPad 3 is announced to ensure you get the most money.

MIAMI (WSVN) – Protesters gathered in Miami, Saturday, to draw attention to social problems that repeatedly affect black women.“On a lot of indicators, black women are towards the bottom, when you consider health, when you consider poverty,” said Miami event organizer Marcia Olivo.The protesters marched with a message.“As an Afro-Latina, I don’t want to be complicit of black women always having to wait because other people have to be served first,” said a woman.Saturday’s march coincided with the “March for Racial Justice” in Washington D.C.Each march was organized by diverse groups of women and men.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Federal investigators have found that the country’s oldest theological college broke the law regarding its Native art. Andover Newton Theological School planned to sell off 80 pieces in its collection, including a sacred Tlingit halibut hook. Now some tribal leaders are wondering if repatriation laws should be tougher.Download AudioThis Tlingit halibut hook with a wolf spirit was slated for auction. (Photo courtesy of Karen Kramer/Peabody Essex Museum)Rosita Worl has been fighting against the school’s Native art liquidation since June. She’s the president of Sealaska Heritage Institute and also served on the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) review committee.Worl said the feds’ decision was bittersweet. It reaffirms the private college is subject to the law because it receives federal student loans.“We were happy that the federal government did find that they were obligated to comply with NAGPRA, but I was also saddened that we had to spend all of that time and effort to force them to comply with NAGPRA,” Worl said.Back in July, the school’s president Martin Copenhaver claimed that the items in the collection weren’t sacred. Turns out, that’s wrong. David Katzeek, a Tlingit tribal member, identified the halibut hook as a sacred object that was used in religious ceremonies.Copenhaver couldn’t be reached for comment, but the college has 45 days to contest the decision.“To the best of my knowledge, we haven’t received any request for informal discussion and there has been no request for hearing at this time,” said David Tarler.Tarler works at the NAGPRA office in Washington D.C. He said the college has reached out for “technical assistance,” but it should have filed a summary of its Native art years ago, which allows the tribes to see what’s in the collection.Andover Newton might not be the only institution skipping this step. Worl says the process can lead to oversights.“There’s no real teeth to the law,” she said. “If I didn’t file my income tax, you could be certain I would be hearing from the federal government and there would be immediate action to comply with the law. In the case of NAGPRA, we don’t have similar kinds of requirements.”Because of this, the Alaska Federation of Natives recently passed a resolution. A group will work on proposing amendments to NAGPRA. They’ve already reached out to the congressional delegation.Worl says the changes are necessary. Repatriation can be a long and costly endeavor for the tribes.“In one case, I would say that we expended over a hundred thousand dollars in just direct expenses. With lawyers, other anthropologists compiling evidence,” she said.And she says the NAGPRA laws are more than 20 years old.“When museums and scientists were less sympathetic to Native American beliefs.”Worl thinks there’s been a cultural shift. Recently, the Northern Light United Church sent a letter to Andover Newton Theological asking the school to return the sacred items. And with the advancements, she says the law should adapt, too.“I do believe that we have a younger group of scientists and museum professionals with a greater understanding of Native American beliefs. I’ve seen this happen all around the country,” she said.Worl hopes this case will encourage other schools and museums to step forward with their Native collections.She says there are more legal hoops, but the Tlingit halibut hook is one step closer to coming home.

Configure Controlled Folder Access in Windows 10 by Martin Brinkmann on October 24, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: August 15, 2019 – 15 commentsControlled Folder Access is a new feature introduced in the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 that is part of Windows Defender Exploit Guard.The security feature protects files from being accessed by malicious code running on the Windows machine, and Microsoft advertises it specifically as a protection mechanism against ransomware.The main idea behind Controlled Folder Access is to protect certain folders and the files they contain from unauthorized access. Think of it as a layer of protection against manipulation of files that are stored in protected folders.The feature requires Windows Defender Antivirus and that real-time protection is enabled as well. Attack Surface Reduction, another security feature which I reviewed yesterday, has the same requirements.The feature was introduced in Windows 10 version 1709, the Fall Creators Update, and is not part of older versions of Microsoft’s operating system.System administrators and users can manage Controlled Folder Access in several ways: through Group Policy and PowerShell, and the Windows Defender Security Center application.Controlled Folder AccessMicrosoft describes the security functionality of Controlled Folder Access in the following way:All apps (any executable file, including .exe, .scr, .dll files and others) are assessed by Windows Defender Antivirus, which then determines if the app is malicious or safe. If the app is determined to be malicious or suspicious, then it will not be allowed to make changes to any files in any protected folder.This means that the functionality relies on Windows Defender to detect a process as malicious. If Windows Defender scans don’t flag the process as malicious or suspicious, access to files an folders protected by Controlled Folder Access is granted.This is different from other anti-ransomware tools like Hitman Pro Kickstart, Bitdefender Anti-Ransomware, or WinPatrolWar, which are usually more pro-active when it comes to protecting important files and folders.Windows Defender Security Center applicationWindows 10 users may enable and manage Controlled Folder Access using the Windows Defender Security Center application.Use Windows-I to open the Settings application.Select Update & Security > Windows SecuritySelect Virus & threat protection when the Windows Security page opens.When Windows Security opens in a new window, select “manage settings” under Virus & threat protection settings.Make sure that real-time protection is enabled.Go back to the Windows Security Main page.Scroll down to the Ransomware Protection section and select Manage ransomware protection.Toggled “Controlled folder access” on the page to enable the feature.Accept the UAC prompt to make the change.When you switch the security feature to on, two links are added underneath it.Protected FoldersThe list of folders that are protected by Controlled Folder Access is displayed when you click on the link. Windows Defender protects some folders automatically; these are:User: Documents, Pictures, Videos, Music, Desktop, FavoritesPublic: Documents, Pictures, Videos, Music, DesktopYou cannot remove these default folders, but you can add custom folder locations so that the added folders are protected by the security feature as well.Click on “add a protected folder” to select a local folder and have it added to the protected folders listing.Allow an app through controlled folder accessThis option lets you whitelist applications so that these programs may interact with protected files and folders. Whitelisting is mostly useful for situations where applications are flagged incorrectly by Windows Defender (false positives).Simply click on the “add an allowed app” option on the page, and select an executable file from the local system, so that it is allowed to access the protected files and folders.Group Policy ConfigurationYou can manage the Controlled Folder Access feature using policies.Note: The Group Policy is part of professional editions of Windows 10 only. Home users don’t have access to it (the free program Policy Plus adds it to the system for the most part though).Tap on the Windows-key, type gpedit.msc, and select the item that is returned by Windows’ built in search.Go to Computer configuration > Administrative templates > Windows components > Windows Defender Antivirus > Windows Defender Exploit Guard > Controlled folder access.Select the “Configure Controlled folder access” policy with a double-click.Set the policy to enabled.You can set the feature to the following values:Disable (Default) — Same as not configured. Controlled Folder Access is not active.Enable — Controlled Folder Access is active and protects folders and the files they contain.Audit Mode — Events created by the feature are written to the Windows event log, but access is not blocked.Two additional policies are available to customize the feature:Configure allowed applications — Enable this policy to add programs to the whitelist.Configure protected folders — Enable this policy to add custom folders that you want the security feature to include in its protection.PowerShell commandsYou may use the PowerShell to enable and configure Controlled Folder Access.Tap on the Windows-key, type PowerShell, hold down the Ctrl-key and the Shift-key, and select the PowerShell search result. This opens an elevated PowerShell command prompt.To change the status of the feature, run the command: Set-MpPreference -EnableControlledFolderAccess EnabledThis enables Controlled Folder Access using PowerShell. You can set the status to enabled, disabled, or AuditMode.To add folders to the list of protected folders, run the command: Add-MpPreference -ControlledFolderAccessProtectedFolders “
Survey Finds Consumers are Showing Positive Economic Outlook July 13, 2015 517 Views in Data, Headlines, News Consumer expectations for the housing market are showing a slightly more positive outlook for the U.S. economy, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Center for Microeconomic Data June 2015 Survey of Consumer Expectations (SCE) released on Monday.The SCE contains information about how consumers expect overall inflation and prices for housing, food, gas, and education to behave. It also provides insight into Americans’ views about job prospects and earnings growth and their expectations about future spending and access to credit.The SCE also provides measures of uncertainty in expectations for the main outcomes of interest. Expectations are also available by age, geography, income, education, and numeracy.The survey found that home price change expectations rose to 3.5 percent, their highest level this year, and median earnings growth as well as household spending growth expectations increased from the prior month. Median consumer inflation expectations at both the short and medium term horizon continue to be stable, while labor market expectations also continued to improve and credit availability expectations were largely unchanged.According to the NY Fed, median home price change expectations rose from 3.3 percent in May to 3.5 percent in June, its highest reading this year, but still below the 2014 average of 3.8 percent. The survey credits southern respondents as the cause for the rise in median home price expectations. On the other hand, median home price uncertainty declined from 3.6 percent in May to 3.1 percent in June, the lowest reading since the survey began.Median household income growth expectations remained steady at 2.9 percent, with an increase for younger household heads but a decline for household heads in the 40-60 age range, the survey said. Household spending expectations rose from 4 percent in May to 4.3 percent in June, their second-highest reading this year. Spending expectations rose for all age and income groups.Perceived change in credit availability compared to a year ago was largely unchanged from the previous month, the NY Fed said. Year-ahead expected credit availability continues to improve with 33 percent of consumers expecting credit availability to be much or somewhat harder a year from now compared to today.Earnings growth expectations rose from 2.3 percent in May to 2.5 percent, their second highest reading this year, the survey determined. The increase in earnings growth expectations was prevalent across all demographic groups, but especially notable for lower education and lower income workers. The mean perceived probability of losing one’s job rose slightly from the series low of 13.8 percent in May to 14 percent in June, its second-lowest level since July 2013. The mean perceived probability of leaving one’s job voluntarily rose to 20.3, and the mean perceived probability of finding a job in the next three months jumped to 55.6 percent, nearly as high as the series high of 55.7 percent reached in March this year.Last week, Fannie Mae’s June 2015 National Housing Survey found that consumer attitudes toward the current condition of the home selling market and future home rental prices may launch purchase activity forward for the rest of 2015. Optimism among consumers about the housing market has reached new survey highs and strong job and income growth are making consumers appear more favorable in the selling market, indicating a possible increase in the existing home supply.“Our June survey results show the positive impact on housing of job and income growth,” said Doug Duncan, SVP and chief economist at Fannie Mae. “The expectation of higher rents is a natural outgrowth of increasing household formation by newly employed individuals putting upward pressure on rental rates. A complementary rise in the good time to sell measure suggests that limited inventory, which is putting upward pressure on house prices, gives an increasing advantage to sellers. Together, these results point to a healthier home purchase market, with more renters likely to find owning to be more cost-effective than renting and more sellers likely to put their homes on the market.”Click here to view the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s June 2015 Survey of Consumer Expectations.
