Guardiola: ‘Atalanta took City to limit’

Visit: Pep Guardiola had nothing but praise for Atalanta after Manchester City’s 5-1 victory. “They have a very special way of playing football and took us to the limit.” Ruslan Malinovskyi had converted an early penalty at the Etihad, but a Sergio Aguero brace and Raheem Sterling hat-trick turned it around. “We knew that Atalanta would take us to the limit, that there would be chances at both ends constantly,” Guardiola told Sky Sport Italia in fluent Italian. “They know what to do with the ball, play very well and take you into difficult situations. It’s no coincidence they qualified for the Champions League, they have a very special way of playing football. “When we can run, we have our chances, when they can run, then they have theirs. We have one more game to qualify and hope it goes well. “This is a long process. We saw Atalanta were 3-0 up against Lazio and drew 3-3, they beat Roma 2-0 a few weeks ago. This is why I give my players a lot of credit for this victory, because it was extremely tough.”last_img read more

European Commission awards half a million pounds to tackle problems posed by

first_imgThere has been a growing concern about the potential health risks microplastics pose to us, whether through ingesting the harmful bacteria they pick up when coming through wastewater plants, or the effect these nanoplastics could have when coming into contact with human cells.”Professor Chris Elliott, a Co-Leader of the Project, Institute of Global Food Security, Queen’s University Belfast Related StoriesOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell researchTrump administration cracks down on fetal tissue researchOlympus launches next-generation X Line objectives for clinical, research applicationsProfessor Elliott added: “The global production of plastic, that can take hundreds of years to biodegrade, is expected to triple by 2050 meaning the problem is only set to increase. This illustrates the urgent need for more research into the damage these plastic particles could be causing us if we are to tackle possibly one of the planet’s greatest threats to our existence.”To address this increasingly serious problem, the European Commission will issue new drinking water legislation, due to be published in 2019, stating that water companies will need to measure concentrations of microplastics from within two years for positive release and inspection.Dr Cuong Cao who also co-leads the project, from the School of Biological Sciences at Queen’s University Belfast, said: “While in theory we welcome this legislation, in practical terms there are huge financial and resources implications that could prevent its implementation. Highly-skilled professionals will be required to operate the high-tech equipment needed to run these tests successfully if we are to meet these standard measurements.”Dr Cao added: “With the number of plastics set to increase each year, coupled with the complexity involved to reach an EC standard, this research project has come at a crucial time. It will enable us to work in collaboration with the most skilled researchers across Europe to enhance their skills as well as developing new technologies to enable industry and businesses to adhere to the proposed legal requirements of nano and microplastics in food and drink.”Source:Queen’s University Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jun 14 2019The researchers are working as part of an international consortium led by Aston University and have been awarded over half a million pounds from the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.There is an estimated 5.25 trillion particles of plastic floating in the Earth’s oceans, which is threatening the health of marine ecosystems and animals, and also that of humans in the water we drink and the food we eat.Microplastics come from a range of everyday items through the breakdown of large plastic waste in bottles, shopping bags and industrial waste. It also comes in the form of microbeads, which are small, manufactured plastic beads used in health and beauty products. They have recently been found in our soil, tap water, bottled water, beer and even in the air we breathe, with a growing concern about the potential health risks they pose.last_img read more

New research reveals twothirds of secondhand memory cards contain personal data from

first_imgUniversity of Hertfordshire research finds people aren’t sufficiently erasing data before selling old memory cards from mobile phones, tablets and other connected devices. Provided by University of Hertfordshire Citation: New research reveals two-thirds of second-hand memory cards contain personal data from previous owners (2018, June 29) retrieved 18 July 2019 from Explore further Keeping personal details personal in the Digital Agecenter_img Credit: University of Hertfordshire This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. New research finds that two-thirds of second-hand memory cards found in mobile phones or tablets and sold to the public still contain personal data from their previous owners. The study, commissioned by—the security and privacy reviews and comparison website, analysed data held and therefore sold on used memory cards. This analysis uncovered a host of personal information and sensitive materials, including passport copies, contact lists and identification numbers being passed from one person to the next.The team at the University of Hertfordshire purchased and analysed 100 used SD and micro SD memory cards from eBay, conventional auctions, second-hand shops, and other sources over a four-month period. They created a forensic image, a bit-by-bit copy, of each card, then used freely available software to recover data. The majority of cards were used in smartphones and tablets, while other devices also included cameras, SatNav systems, and even drones.Data recovered from the used memory cards worryingly included personal information and sensitive materials such as intimate photos and selfies, passport copies, contact lists, navigation files, pornography, resumes, browsing history, identification numbers and other important personal documents.Professor Andrew Jones, Professor of Cyber Security at the University of Hertfordshire said: ‘This research uncovers the prevalence of second-hand memory cards providing a rich source of sensitive data, that could easily be misused if a buyer so wished. Despite the ongoing media focus on cybercrime and the security of personal data, it is clear from our research that the majority are still not taking adequate steps to remove all data from memory cards before sales.’Particularly important is satellite navigation systems (SatNav) data, which can be used to determine the home location of the user, and also the routes that they regularly use and locations that they have identified as being of interest, which may include their place of work and the homes of family and friends. Again, this information in the wrong hands could easily put previous owners at risk.’At the University of Hertfordshire’s Cyber Security Centre, we are focused on investigating and developing tools and techniques capable of detecting and responding to a variety of cyber based attacks, including the collection of digital forensic evidence.’Paul Bischoff, Privacy Advocate for said: “As exemplified in this report, often the problem is not that people don’t wipe their SD cards; it’s that they don’t do it properly. Simply deleting a file from a device only removes the reference that points to where a computer could find that file in the card memory. It doesn’t actually delete the ones and zeros that make up the file. That data remains on the card until it is overwritten by something else. For this reason, it’s not enough to just highlight all the files in a memory card and hit the delete key. Retired cards need to be fully erased and reformatted.’From posting intimate pictures on the web without their knowledge that could be subject to facial recognition technology, illegitimate use of children’s photos that may be stored on these memory card; or using or selling ID documents like a passport to commit fraud – the outcomes are truly scary.’The full breakdown from the 100 cards studied is as follows:36 were not wiped at all, neither the original owner nor the seller took any steps to remove the data.29 appeared to have been formatted, but data could still be recovered “with minimal effort.”2 cards had their data deleted, but it was easily recoverable25 appeared to have been properly wiped using a data erasing tool that overwrites the storage area, so nothing could be recovered.4 could not be accessed (read: were broken).4 had no data present, but the reason could not be determinedThere’s more information on the topic on’s website.last_img read more
