The gruesome killing of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul at the beginning of last month is but one symbol of the new era of realpolitik into which 21st century international relations is sinking like quicksand. The nation state is back with a vengeance, baring its claws and teeth, just as the soothing post-Cold War notion of an “international community” fades further from view. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom, consumed by the Brexit process, is stuck in old and increasingly redundant modes of thinking about the world – torn between a brash, overconfident and underdeveloped idea of itself as a sovereign nation reborn, and a cosmopolitan lament about the passing of a liberal international order in which the boundaries between states were supposed to melt away and nationalism was to be consigned to the dustbin of history. Having covered its hands in blood, the Saudi regime has proved itself inept at washing it off. So flagrant … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightRevenge of the nation state

On March 29, 2015, North Ferriby United produced one of non-league football’s greatest upsets when beating Wrexham on penalties to clinch the FA Trophy at Wembley. That scarcely-believable day belonged in the realms of fantasy. Pretty soon, though, it might end up belonging to another club. These are uncertain times for the Villagers. Although a poor start to their Evo-Stik Premier Division campaign threatens to bring a third consecutive relegation in the spring, supporters are more concerned if they will still have a club to follow in 2019-20. A name change application has been lodged with the Football Association that could see North Ferriby United become known as East Hull next season. Owner Carl Chadwick is also considering a relocation to Dunswell Park on the northern edge of Hull. Chadwick maintained at the weekend that no decisions would be made until the end of this season but that has not stopped supporters from making a stand. A petition set up to keep North Ferriby in … [Read more...] about North Ferriby owners accused of ‘identity theft’

A 35-year-old Russian was extradited to the United States from Georgia on Friday to answer criminal charges over the massive theft of customer data from JPMorgan Chase and Dow Jones, officials announced. Andrei Tyurin is accused of orchestrating major hacking crimes against US financial institutions, brokerage firms and financial news publishers, including the largest theft of customer data from a US financial institution. US prosecutors say the schemes from 2012 to mid-2015 included the theft of personal information of over 100 million customers of the victim companies. The scheme compromised data from millions of customers of JPMorgan Chase and other firms, previously identified as the Dow Jones media group and online brokers ETrade and Scottrade. Tyurin, originally from Moscow, was arrested in Georgia at the request of US authorities, US officials said. He faces 10 charges on multiple conspiracy counts, as well as wire fraud, aggravated identity theft and four counts of computer … [Read more...] about Georgia extradites Russian data theft suspect to US
The U.S. Justice Department’s Friday indictment of 12 Russian officials described them as midlevel functionaries staring at computer screens in windowless offices in the bowels of the vast Kremlin bureaucracy. But Friday’s indictment also shows how the front-line Russian intelligence agents who U.S. officials believe hacked the 2016 presidential election — some of world’s most capable cyberwarriors — operate, and how they did a lot more than steal and disseminate embarrassing emails from Democratic party officials. The operatives from two units within Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency meddled in the election through an elaborate series of coordinated high-tech influence operations, and by using a global network of anonymous servers, bitcoin purchasers and other unwitting cutouts to cover the digital tracks, according to the indictment. And, according to the 14-page charging document, the Russians deeply infiltrated two key Democratic Party … [Read more...] about Mueller indictment sheds new light on Russia’s ‘nasty’ secret election hacking units
