The four external side buttons allow easy access to the speakerphone, call lists which are displayed on the outside LCD, Sprint Ready Link, and volume control. The 1″ outside LCD is high-contrast to allow better visibility in outdoor environments, making it easy to check the time or Caller ID. Once open, the phone reveals an easy-to-use keypad with large raised blue-backlight keys and a 2″ color internal screen. The large 24mm diameter Sanyo speakerphone provides ample audio volume for hands-free conversations. Sprint Vision, for messaging and wireless Web access, as well as downloadable games, ringers, screen savers and other applications. Limit Use feature allows the user to pre-determine the allowed incoming and/or outgoing phone numbers. Can also be used to restrict Sprint Vision and/or Sprint Ready Link usage. 4.4 hours of digital talk time .Wireless Backup, an optional service from Sprint that automatically stores a backup of contacts. Each time the contacts are edited, changes are wirelessly saved to a secure Sprint server. If the phone is lost, stolen or replaced it is easy to restore all of the contacts. Phone as Modem capable. With an optional USB cable, Sprint Vision .Connection Manager Software, and the appropriate Sprint service plan, the SCP-7050 can be used as a modem for a laptop PC.

Conclusion

The Sanyo SCP-7050 may not be the smartest phone around neither is it the pretties of them all, but arguably, this is one of the toughest. Talking of a flipper, one would mostly associate it with a breed of slim weaklings, but here’s an exception.

FBI arrests four in alleged plot to bomb Bronx synagogues, shoot down plane

FBI arrests four in alleged plot to bomb Bronx synagogues, shoot down plane

Friday, May 22, 2009

United States law enforcement officials announced the arrest Thursday of four men in connection with a plot to blow up two synagogues in The Bronx, a borough of New York City, and shoot down military airplanes flying out of the Stewart Air National Guard Base.

The men allegedly placed car bombs wired to cell phones outside the Riverdale Temple and nearby Riverdale Jewish Center in the Bronx area of the city. New York City Police Department commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said one of the suspects placed what he believed were homemade bombs, or improvised explosive devices, in separate vehicles parked outside the synagogues. The other three suspects served as lookouts.

According to a joint statement released by the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, the FBI and the New York City Police Department, the men were returning to the vehicle and were planning to attack aircraft at the Air National Guard base at Stewart airport in Newburgh, with Stinger surface-to-air guided missiles when law enforcement stopped them.

As the men were returning to the vehicle, the signal was given for the arrest. An 18-wheel New York City Police Department vehicle blocked the end of the street. The FBI informer also served as the driver of the suspects’ vehicle. Another armored vehicle arrived, and officers from the department’s Emergency Service Unit, according to witnesses, smashed the blackened windows of the SUV, removed the men from the vehicle, and handcuffed them on the ground. None offered resistance.

The men had previously conducted surveillance of military planes at the Air National Guard base including taking photographs.

Both the car bombs and the missiles were actually fakes given to the plotters with the help of an informant for the FBI, who posed as a Pakistani militant affiliated with Al-Qaeda. Each of the two homemade bombs was equipped with about 37 pounds of inert material labeled as C-4 plastic explosives, but the devices had been ‘totally disabled by the FBI,” and “there was no danger to anyone,” Commissioner Kelly said.

“While the bombs these terrorists attempted to plant tonight were – unbeknownst to them – fake, this latest attempt to attack our freedoms shows that the homeland security threats against New York City are sadly all too real,” said Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York City.

The suspects are reported to be four Muslim men; three U.S. citizens, one Haitian. The Daily News reports that three of the men are jail-house converts to Islam.

James Cromitie, 53, the reported leader, claims that his parents live in Afghanistan and told the FBI informant that he was angry about the U.S. military killing Muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He had lived in Brooklyn and had a record of “as many as 27 arrests” for minor crimes “both upstate and in New York City.”

The other suspects are David Williams, Onta Williams, and Laguerre Payen a native of Haiti.

At the arraignment held Thursday, attorney for Laguerre Payen, Marilyn Reader, told the court that Payen has “a very low borderline” intelligence quotient and receives medication for schizophrenia.

USA tracks information on travelers

USA tracks information on travelers

Saturday, December 2, 2006

Media attention about a little noticed and month-old U.S. Department of Homeland Security report that international airline travelers in-and-out of the U.S. were being tracked via an Automated Targeting System (ATS) has drawn renewed interest.

The database system, started four years ago, accumulates information on overseas travelers and assigns a “terrorist risk rank” to each individual. Such information may include nationality, flight patterns, motor vehicle driving records, and so on. Because ATS is exempt from many provisions of the U.S. Privacy Act, travelers cannot view or question their own rating.

The governmental branch, Customs and Border Patrol, is responsible for administration of the Automated Targeting System-Passenger (ATS-P). The ATS-P received $28.3 million in funding this fiscal year, up $2.4 million from the previous year. The additional funding will be used to, “incorporate additional government and non-government databases for risk analysis utilizing ATS-P’s rules based analysis” according to the Homeland Security 2006 fiscal year report.

International co-operation sought by the U.S. from European Union member states for information sharing on EU travelers was found to be illegal by the European Court of Justice in June this year. But a previously struck sharing agreement, dating from May 2004 between EU airlines and the U.S. became locked in legal complications. Maneuvering by the European Parliament rendered the court’s ruling void.

Search and rescue beacons soon to make the digital jump

Search and rescue beacons soon to make the digital jump

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Starting February 1, Cospas-Sarsat will discontinue monitoring the frequencies that are used for analog-based emergency position-indicating radio beacons (EPIRB), the 121.5 and 243 MHz frequencies. Search and rescue (SAR) groups worldwide will only monitor the 406 MHz frequency, which is dedicated to digital locators.

The 406 MHz digital band has many advantages over the older analog systems. Since the locators send data to satellites, rather than just provide a continuous signal, much more will be known about the emergency before a SAR group arrives, such as the type of vehicle and owner. In addition, the accuracy will be greatly enhanced from a 1400 square kilometre (500 square mile) search zone down to just 90m (100 yards) if the locator has a GPS fix. The most important reason for the switch is the reduction of false positives. With the older analog bands, only about one in every 50 alerts was real, whereas with the digital system that is reduced to about one in every 17 alerts being real.

With fewer false positives and greatly increased accuracy, SAR groups around the world will be better able and faster to respond to life-threatening emergencies within the critical “golden day”. They will also be able to do this with fewer wasted resources.

The phase-out of analog transponders has been a long time coming. The first warnings were sent by the US Coast Guard in 2000, and analog devices have not been manufactured in the last several years. For most large boats the cost of upgrading to the new system was negligible. The change February 1 is worldwide, with both the International Civil Aviation Organization and the International Maritime Organization recommending the switch.

India set to install panic buttons on buses to combat sexual assault

India set to install panic buttons on buses to combat sexual assault

Friday, May 27, 2016

The Indian Government announced on Wednesday they will issue a notification to ensure all buses are fitted with panic buttons to prevent sex-related violence occurring on buses in India. The motion was introduced by Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari. Installation of the buttons is set to become mandatory on June 2.

Tests are under way on 20 buses running from Rajasthan to New Delhi. Buses are to have panic buttons, a GPS-enabled vehicle tracking device, and CCTV cameras. The new buttons are located at the front doors and when pressed, a police control room has the ability to view live footage recorded inside the bus.

Last month, the government announced that as of 2017, mobile phones can’t be sold in India without a panic button. With the press of a single key, the panic button alerts emergency services that assistance is required.

Since a fatal sexual assault three and a half years ago on a bus in New Delhi, accompanied by increased rates of sexual assault, the government has been pressured to help women avoid the dangers of sexual assault. The bus sexual assault three and a half years ago resulted in India-wide protests, and laws regarding sexual assault were overhauled.

According to India’s National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), in 2014 New Delhi reported 1,813 rapes, more than any other Indian city. In more than 80% of rapes across India, the victim knew the rapist. In data from 2013, the rapists in 539 cases were parents, in 2,315 cases other relatives.

In 2012 the NCRB said the country had 24,923 reported rapes. However, this number grew over the following year, with 2013 seeing 33,707 reported.

In 2013, NCRB said New Delhi saw 1,636 rapes reported, with an Indian average of 92 women per day. The New Delhi cases alone account for more than four per day.

Midget car racer Bryan Clauson dies aged 27

Midget car racer Bryan Clauson dies aged 27

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

US racing driver and Carmichael, California native Bryan Clauson died Sunday night from injuries sustained after a crash during Saturday’s Belleville Midget Nationals quarter midget race in Kansas. He was 27 years old.

On lap 14 of the race, Clauson took the lead when he collided with a lapped car in turn four and hit the track’s guardrail. The contact forced his car into a roll, landing on its side, where it was struck by Ryan Greth’s car. The race was suspended under a red flag as track workers removed Clauson from his vehicle, a process that took 30 minutes to complete. He was airlifted to Bryan Medical Center West in Lincoln, Nebraska, where he was reported to be in critical condition. On Monday, Clauson’s family released a statement to United States Auto Club (USAC) officials announcing Clauson had died from his injuries. USAC CEO Kevin Miller stated, “This is truly one of the darkest days in the 60-year history of the United States Auto Club. Not only have we lost one of our greatest USAC champions, we’ve lost a true ambassador for all of motorsports.”

The race was the 116th of the year for Clauson as part of a campaign known as the Circular Insanity Tour, in which he attempted to run 200 races in 2016. Entering the Belleville Nationals, he had won 27 feature races. He was a three-time USAC National Midget and two-time USAC National Sprint Car champion with over 170 wins in USAC-sanctioned events, including a Chili Bowl Nationals win in 2014. He competed in stock car racing, driving in NASCAR and the ARCA Racing Series, winning a race in the latter. He ran 26 Busch Series (now Xfinity Series) races in 2007 and 2008 for Chip Ganassi Racing, recording a best finish of fifth at Kentucky Speedway in 2008. In 2008, he attempted three Sprint Cup Series races for Ganassi, but failed to qualify for all three. Clauson also ran three Indianapolis 500 events, one of which included the 100th running in 2016, where he finished 23rd.

In the previous night’s race, Clauson crashed into Morgan Frewaldt’s car in a similar location to his accident on Saturday. Clauson’s team reported he was sore after the impact, but he tweeted his thanks to his safety equipment and chassis manufacturer for keeping him safe.

He is survived by his parents, Tim and Diana, his sister, Taylor and his fiancé, Lauren Stewart.

How often do you think of the inventor of that gorgeous piece of furniture you just saw when you walked down the street? Are they just people who cut a few pieces of wood, got some sheets of metal and juxtaposed them in a fairly nice way?

Some people to whom furniture was more than just that made history. Whats more, some of them were architects of not just their sofas and tables but also of American modernism. He perpetuated a philosophy that reinforced human creativity and was the modernist who epitomises this creativity in his designs and looks at furniture in a way that only he can visualize.

He was born in Hartford in Connecticut. He showed all signs of brilliance as he grew up. College at Yale, degree in Fine Arts, work at pencil Points, and the Rome prize for Architecture just another feather in the cap for him. After winning this, as reward he got to stay in a palace in Rome, study architecture in the amazing city of boundless beauty and meet some of the greatest minds of modernist art like Gio Ponti, Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier. He interviewed them all for Pencil Points. His writings talked about a lot of concepts. He later co-wrote a book called Tomorrows House with Henry Wright (the man who made The Bungalow in Chicago). In his book, he introduced the revolutionary ideas of the family room and the storage wall. This made for interesting observation to Herman Miller who was introduced to Nelson by his brother Howard Miller.

The rest is history. Miller was interested in Nelsons futuristic visions for furniture and gave him a chance even though he had never actually designed anything previously. And George Nelson, being George Nelson, did not disappoint. Working together with other notable designers like Charles and Ray Eames, Irving Harper, Robert Schultz and David Knorr, he came up with some of the most frequently sought after pieces of furniture currently.

In 1955 he started his own firm George Nelson Associates. The famous Nelson artworks today include The Coconut Chair, The Marshmallow Sofa, The Ball Clock and the Nelson Platform bench. Some of the top notch people who worked with him were Irving Harper, John Pile and later, Ettore Scotsass. What happens to a company with that amount of genius is anybodys guess. There were negative criticisms as well of his work as he was a staunch modernist. He often blamed his colleagues for not standing by their principles of thought and design likings and going by what would commercially benefit them.

What Nelson is best known for is furniture but what made him an industry wizard is his yearning for the betterment of the world through his designs. An urge to preserve the rules of nature while still being modern was inherent in him. That is why his designs be it the marshmallow sofas or the sunflower clock are not mere pieces of art. They are marvels born out of the human mind. In what we saw a lifeless pane of metal, Nelson saw the possibility of making it come alive.

Teenage gunman kills 15 in south-west Germany

Teenage gunman kills 15 in south-west Germany

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

A 17 year old gunman has killed 15 in the towns of Winnenden and Wendlingen, near Stuttgart in southwest Germany, before being killed himself in a shootout with police.

Dressed in what has been described as black combat gear, the gunman entered Albertville school at 9.30am on March 11 2009 and, beginning with a particular classroom, started shooting at pupils and staff wandering through various 9th and 10th grade classrooms, reloading his handgun a number of times as he did so in a two minute shooting spree.

Reportedly aiming at the heads of his victims the gunman, identified as former pupil Tim Kretschmer, initially killed nine pupils, all except one being female, and three female teachers, one of whom was still a trainee who started only 4 weeks earlier. A further seven female students were injured. There are conflicting reports if a tenth student died from injuries later. Other students were injured as they attempted to escape by jumping out of windows.

Police received a call within three minutes at 9:33 a.m. the police entered the school at 9:40 a.m. to discover the bodies of the slain victims. A pupil managed to call for help using a mobile phone, and the headmaster apparently gave an early warning via the intercom so that some of the teachers were able to lock the doors to their classrooms from the inside, probably preventing more killings. From the first floor of the school, Kretschmer fired at the first police who arrived on the scene.

Kretschmer fled the school as further police arrived, and killed a gardener in a nearby clinic as he did so.

As the police evacuated the 1,000 pupil secondary school, Kretschmer, hijacked a Volkswagen Sharan and forced the driver to drive him south. Slowed by a traffic jam Kretschmer forced the driver to drive towards Wendlingen.

A police checkpoint was not able to apprehend Kretschmer. The car went off the road, and the gunman fled into an industrial area in Wendlingen about 40 kilometres (25 miles) from the school.

Tracked by specialist armed police and police spotters in helicopters Kretschmer was finally cornered in the carpark of a car dealership in Wendlingen. Kretschmer, the son of a well known local farmer and businessman, made a last stand and killed a salesman and a customer before being shot by police marksmen being injured in the leg. At first it was unclear if the shooting killed him or if he was wounded and then shot himself. Police now believe that the evidence points to suicide.

During the manhunt, police stormed the youth’s home in Leutenbach to conduct a search. Kretschmer’s father, a hobbyist hunter, legally owned 15 firearms and one was missing from the collection. The majority of the firearms were kept securely locked as German law mandates, however a handgun was kept in the parent’s bedroom and it is this weapon that is presumed to have been used. Also, all the ammunition was not locked away, and Kretschmer reportedly carried a “3-digit figure” of ammunition with him.

The police are still uncertain about the motive, as Kretschmer was known as a calm, inconspicuous person to the people who knew him personally. He didn’t have a criminal record and has apparently not made any announcements of his killing spree, neither online nor to any of his friends.

Kretschmer had been a graduate of Albertville school the previous year.

Two police officers remain in serious condition.
