Still more work to do

Statistics have not been kind to the Silver State.

Both state and national reports indicate Nevada is one of the worst states for domestic violence by ranking at or near the top in many categories.

Every year in October, we recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the commendable job many organizations do to stop this senseless abomination and help victims. According to the Violence Policy Center, Nevada’s statistics are staggering, especially in the rate of murders committed by men against women. Nevada ranks second in the nation with a rate of 2.29 murders per 100,000 people. Sadly, for the past 13 of 14 years, our state has fallen in the top 10 of states where women are murdered by men they know.

National statistics are just as appalling. A woman is beaten every nine seconds, and 70 percent of child witnesses also become victims.

Indeed, it has crossed the rubicon between the worlds

Norton study shows 70% of Aussies still experiencing online harassment

New research released by Symantec’s Norton division has revealed “a significant increase in the number of Australians reporting online harassment, jumping 20% in the last year from 50% (2016) to a staggering 70% (2017)”.

In an age where technology reigns supreme, this naturally “causes concern about how good online citizenship is constantly neglected, at the expense of the detrimental impact online harassment has on men and women”.

Norton says its study “aims to understand Australian exposure to online harassment ranging from unwanted conflict, trolling, character assassinations, and cyberbullying to sexual harassment and threats of physical violence, as well as the impacts of these experiences”.




We’re told that this year’s study “shows a general increase of people experiencing online harassment across all age groups, with the 40+

8 TV shows that returned after a long gap – did they still have the old magic?

After: Reborn as Still Open All Hours in 2013 – and with the same writer, Roy Clarke, still penning the gags – this 28-years-later revival promoted David Jason to lead, and brought back many of the shop regulars from the old series.

Despite being battered by critics, this new iteration of Open All Hours has proved a ratings juggernaut for the BBC. Seems it ain’t going nowhere.

5. Twin Peaks – 26 years

Before: Back in 1990, the genre-bending Twin Peaks was the Game of Thrones of its day, with the entire TV-watching world, it seemed, asking the question, “WHO killed Laura Palmer?!”

It didn’t last long though – once Laura’s killer was revealed, the series haemorrhaged viewers. Despite finding its mojo again in its final episodes, ABC pulled the plug in 1991.

Old fashioned physical bullying still more common than cyber …

FACE-TO-FACE bullying is still the preferred method used by school bullies despite the popularity of Twitter and Facebook, according to Oxford University research.

The study conducted by the University’s Internet Institute found less than one per cent of 15-year-olds in England were regularly experiencing cyberbullying compared to 27 per cent being bullied in person.

Lead researcher Dr Andrew Przybylski found that cyberbullying was being used ‘as a new avenue to victimise those already being bullied in traditional ways’.

The team called for interventions that target both forms of bullying in adolescence as well as initiatives to make teenagers more resilient.

Dr Przybylski said: “Despite common perceptions and the growth of the online world for teenagers, our study finds that cyberbullying, on its own, is relatively rare, with face-to-face bullying remaining most common among teenagers.

“Cyberbullying is best understood as a new avenue to

Petya-inspired ransomware is déjà vu for still-vulnerable businesses

It’s déjà vu all over again as the aggressive Petrwrap global ransomware outbreak causes new headaches in Australia and abroad – and the global security community again excoriates businesses for poor patching and remediation strategies that make them sitting ducks for ransomware perpetrators.

The emergence overnight of a new ransomware strain that exploits the same EternalBlue vulnerability as May’s WannaCry outbreak – but is more carefully written to ensure that it can’t be as easily disabled – has already chalked up a tier-one list of victims.

Ukranian and Russian targets have been particularly named, with suggestions the outbreak emerged from a poisoned update for the MeDoc software suite popular amongst Ukranian businesses. As it spread, it has amassed a growing list of victims including Merck, TNT Express, AP Moller-Maersk, WPP, and Australian divisions of DLA Piper and chocolate manufacturer Cadbury.
