first_imgRohingya refugees carrying their belongings after fleeing Myanmar, as they walk on the Bangladesh side of the Naf River, Bangladesh October 2, 2017 Photo : ReutersDespite Myanmar’s orchestrated military campaign to eliminate Rohingyas from their motherland, the world has mostly avoided calling the atrocities as genocide.This attitude, two globally reputed legal experts say, is because the use of the word ‘genocide’ might compel the world leaders to take military action against the Myanmar authorities.Why leaders of different nations refrained from calling it genocide has been reflected in Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte’s apology to Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi after the former said a genocide was taking place in the latter’s country.To refer to the Rohingya killing that led to displacement of more than 700,000 Myanmar nationals, some UN officials and global leaders are generally using ethnic cleansing, a term which, the experts pointed out, does not involve legal action.“The UN avoids the word ‘genocide’ because world leaders avoid military action to stop it,” said Gregory Stanton, founding chairman of Genocide Watch and the Alliance Against Genocide.Also a research professor of Genocide Prevention at George Mason University in USA, he told Prothom Alo in an email interview that the term ethnic cleaning is an insidious term because there is no international treaty law to address it, whereas there are international laws to deal with forced displacement and genocide.He insisted that the Rohingya persecution be called genocide.Also, Thomas MacManus, a researcher with International State Crime Initiative at Queen Mary University of London, observed that the Rohingyas are facing genocide.”The Rohingya are undoubtedly facing genocide and we have been warning governments of this fact since 2014. The international community appears to be avoiding using the term ‘genocide’ in public in order to avoid the legal obligations to prevent it under the Genocide Treaty,” he said to Prothom Alo in an email interview sent on Sunday.The researchers regret that by avoiding the word genocide, the world leaders are in a way helping the perpetrators to continue the genocide.Read more : ICC seeks Bangladesh opinion to run case on atrocities against RohingyasAbout 22,000 Rohingya Muslims were killed in attacks in Myanmar’s Rakhine state since 25 August 2017, according to an estimate by International State Crime Initiative.Most of the Rohingya Muslims who have taken shelter in Bangladesh since then were found to be injured or traumatised. With the latest number, more than a million Rohingyas have come to Bangladesh over the past two decades to escape Myanmar persecution.Professor Stanton said, “A systematic campaign of mass murder and destruction is surely enough proof of specific intent to destroy part of the Rohingya people.”Joined by three epidemiologists, he studied the impact of using the words “ethnic cleansing” rather than “genocide” in four genocides: Rwanda, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Darfur.Stanton pointed out that “ethnic cleansing” is not a crime in the Rome Treaty of the International Criminal Court.The 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, covers within its definition, killing members of the group, causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part, imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group and forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.In Myanmar, the first four stages of genocide were already present in Rakhine state while the Rohingya were facing the final two stages of genocide, reads a research report by Thomas MacManus and two other researchers published recently.Red more : China does not want UN to push Myanmar on accountabilityMaung Zarni , a Burmese human rights activist and  an adviser to the European Centre for the Study of Extremism based in UK, told Prothom Alo that Rohingyas are facing genocide and the genocide did not begin when 700,000 Rohingyas fled terror but it was conceived and launched 40 years ago.Also, Nobel peace laureates Shirin Ebadi and Tawakkol Karman, in an article published in a Canadian newspaper ‘The Globe and Mail’ on Thursday termed the Rohingya persecution as genocide.Red more : ICC seeks Rohingya probelast_img read more

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. One of the best things you can do to help keep your PC and your private data safe is to stay abreast of the latest security alerts. But security news stories often contain techie jargon that can make your eyes glaze over faster than a congressional session on C-SPAN.To help you determine whether a particular alert is worthy of Chicken Little or is truly dangerous, here are translations for some of the most common threat terms.Drive-by download: A big one. If a program or operating system bug allows drive-by contamination, your PC can become infected with malware if you simply view a malicious Web site. You don’t have to download anything or click any links on the poisoned page.User interaction required: You might think that you’d have to download a file or open an attachment to get hit by an attack described in this way. But experts often apply the term to simply clicking a link that will deliver you to a page containing a drive-by download.Zero-day: Potentially major, but not always. This term most commonly refers to a flaw (and perhaps an attack exploiting it) that surfaces before a fix is available. If the attack is ongoing (see “in the wild”), watch out. But many alerts or stories play up zero-day flaws that aren’t being hit and may never be; see the next entry.Proof-of-concept: A flaw or attack that researchers have discovered but that bad guys have yet to exploit. If the alert says something like “proof-of-concept code has been released,” crooks are very likely to create a real attack with that sample. But many evil-sounding proof-of-concept attacks never get weaponized.In the wild: The opposite of proof-of-concept. When an exploit or malware is in the wild, digital desperados are actively using it. If the term is being used to describe attacks against a software flaw, make sure that you have installed the application’s latest patches.Remote code execution: This kind of flaw allows an attacker to run any command on the victim’s computer–such as installing remote-control software that can effectively take over a PC. Holes of this type are dangerous, so take notice when you hear of one.Denial of service: Not so bad. This term usually describes an attack that can crash a vulnerable program or computer (thereby denying you its service) but can’t install malware. Occasionally, however, crooks figure out how to transform a denial-of-service flaw into a concerted attack that allows remote code execution.Of course, your best bet is to apply security patches as they’re released, whether to fix a proof-of-concept denial-of-service flaw (yawn) or to address an urgent zero-day drive-by download threat. 3 min read Brought to you by PCWorld August 26, 2008 Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowlast_img read more

first_imgA new report prepared for the Senate Intelligence Committee by the cybersecurity firm, New Knowledge was released yesterday. The report titled “The Tactics & Tropes of theInternet Research Agency” provides an insight into how IRA a group of Russian agents used and continue to use social media to influence politics in America by exploiting the political and racial separation in American society. “Throughout its multi-year effort, the Internet Research Agency exploited divisions in our society by leveraging vulnerabilities in our information ecosystem. We hope that our work has resulted in a clearer picture for policymakers, platforms, and the public alike and thank the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for the opportunity to serve”, says the report. Russian interference during the 2016 Presidential Elections comprised of Russian agents trying to hack the online voting systems, making cyber-attacks aimed at Democratic National Committee and Russian tactics of social media influence to exacerbate the political and social divisions in the US. As a part of SSCI’s investigation into IRA’s social media activities, some of the social platforms companies such as Twitter, Facebook, and Alphabet that were misused by the IRA, provided data related to IRA influence tactics. However, none of these platforms provided complete sets of related data to SSCI. “Some of what was turned over was in PDF form; other datasets contained extensive duplicates. Each lacked core components that would have provided a fuller and more actionable picture. The data set provided to the SSCI for this analysis includes data previously unknown to the public.and..is the first comprehensive analysis by entities other than the social platforms”, reads the report. The report brings to light IRA’s strategy that involved deciding on certain themes, primarily social issues and then reinforcing these themes across its Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube content. Different topics such as black culture, anti-Clinton, pro-trump, anti-refugee, Muslim culture, LGBT culture, Christian culture, feminism, veterans, ISIS, and so on were grouped thematically on Facebook Pages and Instagram accounts to reinforce the culture and to foster the feelings of pride.  Here is a look at some key highlights from the report. Key Takeaways IRA used Instagram as the biggest tool for influence As per the report, Facebook executives, during the Congressional testimony held in April this year, hid the fact that Instagram played a major role in IRA’s influence operation. There were about 187 million engagements on Instagram compared to 76.5 million on Facebook and 73 million on Twitter, according to a data set of posts between 2015 and 2018. In 2017, IRA moved much of its activity and influence operations to Instagram as media started looking into Facebook and Twitter operations. Instagram was the most effective platform for the Internet Research Agency and approximately 40% of Instagram accounts achieved over 10,000 followers (a level referred to as “micro-influencers” by marketers) and twelve of these accounts had over 100,000 followers (“influencer” level). The Tactics & Tropes of IRA “Instagram engagement outperformed Facebook, which may indicate its strength as atool in image-centric memetic (meme) warfare. Our assessment is that Instagram is likely to be a key battleground on an ongoing basis,” reads the report. Apart from social media posts, another feature of Instagram platform activity by IRA was merchandise. This merchandise promotion aimed at building partnerships for boosting audience growth and getting the audience data. This was especially evident in the black targeted communities with hashtags #supportblackbusiness and #buyblack appearing quite frequently. In fact, sometimes these IRA pages also offered coupons in exchange for sharing content. The Tactics & Tropes of IRA IRA promoted Voter Suppression Operations The report states that although Twitter and Facebook were debating on determining if there was any voter suppression content present on these platforms, three major variants of voter suppression narratives was found widespread on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.  These included malicious misdirection (eg: tweets promoting false voting rules), candidates supporting redirection, and turnout depression ( eg: no need to vote, your vote doesn’t matter). The Tactics & Tropes of IRA For instance, few days before the 2016 presidential elections in the US, IRA started to implement voter suppression tactics on the Black-community targeted accounts. IRA started to spread content about voter fraud and delivering warnings that “election would be stolen and violence might be necessary”. These suppression narratives and content was largely targeted almost exclusively at the Black community on Instagram and Facebook. There was also the promotion of other kinds of content on topics such as alienation and violence to divert people’s attention away from politics. Other varieties of voter suppression narratives include: “don’t vote, stay home”, “this country is not for Black people”, “these candidates don’t care about Black people”, etc. Voter-suppression narratives aimed at non-black communities focused primarily on promoting identity and pride for communities like Native Americans, LGBT+, and Muslims. The Tactics & Tropes of IRA Then there were narratives that directly and broadly called out for voting for candidates apart from Hillary Clinton and pages on Facebook that posted repeatedly about voter fraud, stolen elections, conspiracies about machines provided by Soros, and rigged votes. IRA largely targeted black American communities IRA’s major efforts over Facebook and Instagram were targeted at Black communities in America and involved developing and recruiting Black Americans as assets. The report states that IRA adopted a cross-platform media mirage strategy which shared authentic black related content to create a strong influence on the black community over social media. An example presented in the report is that of a case study of “Black Matters” which illustrates the extent to which IRA created “inauthentic media property” by creating different accounts across the social platforms to “reinforce its brand” and widely distribute its content. “Using only the data from the Facebook Page posts and memes, we generated a map of the cross-linked properties – other accounts that the Pages shared from, or linked to – to highlight the complex web of IRA-run accounts designed to surround Black audiences,” reads the report. So, an individual who followed or liked one of the Black-community-targeted IRA Pages would get exposed to content from a dozen other pages more. Apart from IRA’s media mirage strategy, there was also the human asset recruitment strategy. It involved posts encouraging Americans to perform different types of tasks for IRA handlers. Some of these tasks included requests for contact with preachers from Black churches, soliciting volunteers to hand out fliers, offering free self-defense classes (Black Fist/Fit Black), requests for speakers at protests, etc. These posts appeared in the Black, Left, and Right-targeted groups, although they were mostly present in the black groups and communities. “The IRA exploited the trust of their Page audiences to develop human assets, at leastsome of whom were not aware of the role they played. This tactic was substantiallymore pronounced on Black-targeted accounts”, reads the report. IRA also created domain names such as blackvswhite.info, blackmattersusa.com, blacktivist.info, blacktolive.org, and so on. It also created YouTube channels like “Cop Block US” and “Don’t Shoot” to spread anti-Clinton videos. In response to these reports of specific black targeting at Facebook, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) returned a donation from Facebook and called on its users yesterday to log out of all Facebook-owned products such as Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp today. “NAACP remains concerned about the data breaches and numerous privacy mishaps that the tech giant has encountered in recent years, and is especially critical about those which occurred during the last presidential election campaign”, reads the NAACP announcement. IRA promoted Pro-Trump and anti-Clinton operations As per the report, IRA focussed on promoting political content surrounding pro-Donald Trump sentiments over different channels and pages regardless of whether these pages targeted conservatives, liberals, or racial and ethnic groups. The Tactics & Tropes of IRA On the other hand, large volumes of political content articulated anti-Hillary Clinton sentiments among both the Right and Left-leaning communities created by IRA. Moreover, there weren’t any communities or pages on Instagram and Facebook that favored Clinton. There were some pro-Clinton Twitter posts, however, most of the tweets were still largely anti-Clinton. The Tactics & Tropes of IRA Additionally, there were different YouTube channels created by IRA such as Williams & Kalvin, Cop Block US, don’t shoot, etc, and 25 videos across these different channels consisted election-related keywords in their title and all of these videos were anti-Hillary Clinton. An example presented in a report is of one of the political channels, Paul Jefferson, solicited videos for a #PeeOnHillary video challenge for which the hashtag appeared on Twitter and Instagram.  and shared submissions that it received. Other videos promoted by these YouTube channels were “The truth about elections”, “HILLARY RECEIVED $20,000 DONATION FROM KKK TOWARDS HER CAMPAIGN”, and so on. Also, on IRA’s Facebook account, the post with maximum shares and engagement was a conspiracy theory about President Barack Obama refusing to ban Sharia Law, and encouraging Trump to take action. The Tactics & Tropes of IRA Also, the number one post on Facebook featuring Hillary Clinton was a conspiratorial post that was made public a month before the election. The Tactics & Tropes of IRA These were some of the major highlights from the report. However, the report states that there is still a lot to be done with regard to IRA specifically. There is a need for further investigation of subscription and engagement pathways and only these social media platforms currently have that data. New Knowledge team hopes that these platforms will provide more data that can speak to the impact among the targeted communities.

first_img Builders are exuding more confidence in the real estate market as more buyers purchase homes with unwavering certainty. According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI), builder confidence in the market for newly built, single-family homes in June reached a high of 59. This is an increase of five points from last month and the highest reading this year since September 2014.“Builders are reporting more serious and committed buyers at their job sites and this is reflected in recent government data showing that new-home sales and single-family construction are gaining momentum,” said Tom Woods, NAHB chairman and a home builder from Blue Springs, Missouri.The NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index is a monthly survey that the organization has been conducting for 30 years, the association said.  The data determines builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “good,” “fair,” or “poor.” The survey also asks builders to rate traffic of prospective buyers as “high to very high,” “average,” or “low to very low.” These scores are used to find a seasonally adjusted index that deems any number over 50 to mean that more builders are in favor of good conditions rather than poor conditions.According to the index, all three HMI components saw healthy gains in June. The component that determines current sales conditions rose seven points to 65, while the component that predicts future sales for the next six months increase six points to 69. The component measuring buyer traffic increased five points to 44.The index also found that the three-month moving averages for regional HMI scores posted increases in every region except the Midwest. The South and Northeast both increased by three points to 60 and 44, respectively. Meanwhile, the West increased by two points to 57 and the Midwest dropped by one point to 54.“The HMI indices measuring current and future sales expectations are at their highest levels since the last quarter of 2005, indicating a growing optimism among builders that housing will continue to strengthen in the months ahead,” said David Crowe, NAHB’s chief economist. “At the same time, builders remain sensitive to consumers’ ability to buy a new home.”Click here to view the complete NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index.

first_img3. Clemson can do it all. Don’t let the 45-37 final margin deceive you: Clemson manhandled North Carolina on Saturday night. The Tigers out-rushed North Carolina 319-142, held the ball for nearly 39 minutes, achieved 33 first downs, notched drives of 96 and 97 yards, and harassed Marquise Williams into throwing incomplete on 22 of his 33 passes.Dabo Swinney’s team has been on the No. 1 line every week of the season to date, and they’ll be so again Sunday morning.4. Alabama can’t do it all, but it’s really, really good at what it does do. Jake Coker is not A.J. McCarron, Greg McElroy, John Parker Wilson or even Blake Sims. That’s partly because he doesn’t have a Julio Jones or Amari Cooper to catch his passes.But forget about what the Tide doesn’t have, because here’s what it does have: the best front seven and best running back in college football.Alabama enters the Playoff as the best run defense on both a per game (74 yards) and per carry (2.38) basis. Kirby Smart’s defense has recorded 46 sacks, most in college football and third-most on a per game basis (3.54), and its 8.69 plays of 10-plus yards allowed per game are the fewest in college football. Alabama also sits in the top 10 in tackles for loss and third down defense.On the other side of the ball, Derrick Henry’s 1,986 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns are more than any other player in the game. And there’s a strong chance he’ll enter the Playoff with something else no one else has: the Heisman Trophy.So, yes, Oklahoma can throw the ball better. Clemson is more well-rounded. Michigan State has more late game mettle. But none of those advantages will matter if they don’t first rectify themselves with Henry and Alabama’s front seven.5. About that Heisman Trophy. The official mission of the Heisman Trophy reads, “The Heisman Memorial Trophy annually recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity.”What that in mind, consider Christian McCaffrey’s statistics in Stanford’s 41-22 victory over USC on Saturday night: 32 carries for 207 yards and one touchdown, four receptions for 105 yards and one touchdown, 120 kickoff return yards, 29 punt return yards and an 11-yard touchdown pass to boot. His 461 all-purpose yards on the night and 3,496 this season were enough to break Barry Sanders’ 27-year-old FBS single-season all-purpose yardage record.There are better running backs in college football. Better receivers, punt returners and kick returners, too. But how can one argue there’s a better college football player than Christian McCaffrey?5a. The frustration of watching McCaffrey run wild created an awkward situation in the Levi’s Stadium press box.Profanity in #USC coaches box as Wright gains 9 for #Stanford— InsideUSC (@InsideUSC) December 6, 2015 6. The powers that be must spend their off-season improving college football’s officiating. With 1:13 remaining and all three timeouts in its back pocket, North Carolina recovered an onside kick that would have given the Heels the ball at midfield needing only a touchdown and a two-point conversion to force Clemson into overtime.But North Carolina was called offsides on a play where, clearly, no one was offsides. One of the #USC coaches continues to scream the F word over and over. It sounds like Justin Wilcox.

The play of the season, and perhaps the decade. Here’s the situation: your team leads 14-9. Your defense is rocking, with three straight three-and-outs with a cumulative minus-9 yards of offense in those nine plays. It’s 4th-and-15. You’re a punter. What do you do? You punt the football.Here’s what Clemson punter Andy Teasdall did.Again, it’s not fourth-and-1, it’s fourth-and-15. FOURTH AND FIFTEEN! Poor Teasdall even made Dabo Swinney go un-Christian on him. Dabo: “My punter – I don’t have an explanation – just decided to do something on his own & put us in a bad spot and it cost us a touchdown.”— Howie Lindsey (@howielindsey) December 6, 2015Andy Teasdall is my new hero, and should be yours, too.10. Odds and Ends.a. Congrats to Dino Babers, who leaves Bowling Green after two seasons with 18 wins and a MAC championship with a 34-14 destruction of Northern Illinois on Friday night. The Falcons have scored 28 points or more in 14 straight games dating back to last season.b. On Sept. 27, Rocky Long and his San Diego State staff arrived at work at 1-3, losers of three straight. On Saturday night they hoisted a trophy as Mountain West champions, winners of nine straight games. The Aztecs fought back from three different deficits to fend off Air Force, 27-24.c. From Oct 17 to the three minute mark of the second quarter Saturday, Southern Miss was on a 310-105 scoring run. They were winners of six straight and appeared headed to a seventh. Then Western Kentucky woke up. The Hilltoppers tied the game by halftime and 38 of the game’s final 45 points on their way to a 45-28 win and a Conference USA championship.d. It didn’t come in a conference title game, but Arkansas State clinched its fourth Sun Belt title in five years with a 55-17 thumping of Texas State.e. “Impossible.” That’s the only word I, or anyone else, would’ve used heading into this season upon learning Texas would beat Oklahoma and Baylor — both away from Austin — and still miss a bowl. Charlie Strong’s Horns beat the Sooners and Bears by a combined 47-34… and got outscored 150-30 in their four remaining games away from Austin. Texas shutout Baylor (led by its fourth-string quarterback Lynx Hawthorne) in the first half, then allowed the Bears to accumulate the bulk of their 66 rushes for 395 yards in the second half. A week after it ran for 403 yards and lost, Texas allowed 395 rushing yards and won.That string of facts seemingly can not exist, and yet here it is. Texas will be one of the most-curiously-watched college football teams in 2016.f. A congratulations are in order for Trent Miles and Georgia State. The Panthers entered this season without an FBS victory to their credit and entered their Nov. 14 trip to Texas State at 2-6. But the Panthers won that game, then beat South Alabama, then beat Troy and on Saturday went down to Statesboro and whipped rival Georgia Southern 34-7. An four-game winning streak by an average of 33-14 sends Georgia State to its first-ever bowl game.g. Three 5-7 teams will play in bowls this winter: Nebraska, Minnesota and San Jose State. Feel free to hiss in their general directions.h. Remember way back in August when North Dakota State and Montana kicked off the Division I season with a classic the Grizzlies pulled out in the last minute? Yeah, the Bison got revenge for that on Saturday. Hard. The Bison sent Bob Stitt and company packing with a 37-6 win, and the drive for five heads to its next stop against Northern Iowa next week.i. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the gilded stupidity that is the entire College Football Playoff selection committee process.

Actually, it didn’t start there.After all that, only Texas defensive back Kevin Vaccaro was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct when, in reality, the only sin he committed was being pushed by a teammate as he attempted to step over Baylor quarterback Lynx Hawthorne.Hawthorne should’ve been flagged for a late hit, as should the Texas player (not Vaccaro) who shoved Hawthorne after the tackle. And both teams deserved flags for unsportsmanlike conduct.But, hey, at least the Big 12 and ACC don’t already have officiating gaffes on their ledgers this season.7. There wasn’t a Playoff spot on the line, but don’t think Temple and Houston didn’t have a lot to play for in the American championship. According to bowl guru Stewart Mandel’s latest projections, the winner of the AAC title game would play in the Peach Bowl opposite Florida State on New Year’s Eve.The loser? They’re playing in dilapidated Tropicana Field at 11 a.m. the day after Christmas in front of (probably) 7,000 people.In real life terms, there may not have been a bigger dichotomy between victory and defeat than that on Saturday.As for the actual game? Houston jumped out to a 24-3 lead and cruised to a 24-13 win. Tom Herman concludes his first regular season as a head coach with a 12-1 record, a conference title and nine wins by double digits.Tom Herman is 50–4 the past four seasons as OC/HC with an undefeated season, a B1G/national title, and now an ACC championship/NY6 bid.— Bryan Fischer (@BryanDFischer) December 5, 2015 Iowa ran just 16 plays after halftime.

You bound down the stairs in your footy pajamas — you in red, your little brother in green and your sister in pink — turn the corner and set your gaze upon the tree. Except in this version of Christmas, your presents are already open. They are Clemson, wrapped in orange and a warm smile, and Alabama, packaged in crimson and a cold scowl. They are Oklahoma, plopped on the coffee table for a solid week now, and Michigan State, freshly packaged in a shiny, metallic green.You know your presents ahead of time, but the lack of suspense, that paper-ripping drama you live for every year, doesn’t disappoint you, because you know how they arrived in front of you on this day, and that is what matters.1. The drive. Trailing 13-9, Michigan State accepted the ball at its own 18-yard line with nine and a half minutes to play. They would consume all but 27 of the remaining 571 seconds.Needing a touchdown to win the game, Mark Dantonio’s Spartans moved 82 yards in 22 gut-checking plays. No play traveled longer than 16 yards. They would survive two penalties, convert five of six third down tries and one fourth down try. The Spartans sucked away all three Iowa timeouts by running 17 times, including the final 12 plays covering the last 34 yards.last_img read more

Because the memorandum of understanding was not signed by the chancellor and chief financial officer, the deal was not binding.We surely haven’t heard the last of this, as court cases are sure to drag out seeking reparations.Interestingly enough, Pruitt’s deal is for six years and worth $3.8 million annually, with various incentives built in for reaching the CFB Playoff title game ($400k), CFB Playoff ($300k), and also for a top-five finish in the AP, coaches, or CFP poll ($150k), among others, as SEC Country points out.Head here to read more.Stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.last_img read more
