Intensifying feud: Germany stops arms sales to Turkey

September 12, 2017 Middle East Monitor 0

Relations between Turkey and Germany have taken another blow as Berlin announced yesterday that it is putting arms exports to its NATO ally on hold. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel announced his country’s decision in remarks that appear to be a response to a German couple being detained by Ankara allegedly on political grounds. Turkish relations with several EU states, including Germany, have deteriorated sharply this year. Relations began to sour after Germany gave asylum to Turkish military officers wanted by Ankara for the failed coup of 2016.

New Amnesia Ransomware Variant Poses as WannaCry Clone

September 12, 2017 BitNewz.net 0

TheMerkle Amnesia Ransomware WannaCryMany different ransomware types have come and gone over the past few years. This industry is booming like never before, with new variants rolling out on a regular basis. The Amnesia ransomware strain was once a threat, but a free decryption tool was released earlier this year. However, a new variant of this malware strain surfaced last week, which seems closely related to the WannaCry ransomware strain. Amnesia Ransomware Mounts a Minor Comeback The year 2017 has been riddled with new malware and ransomware types arising on a regular basis. The number of new strains can almost no longer be counted,

Watch Live: Apple Unveils Latest iPhone From Spaceship Campus

September 12, 2017 Tyler Durden 0

Update: This seemed to sum things up in Cupertino perfectly – Steve Wozniak is wandering around. He said he is excited to see the new iPhone features, especially the facial recognition. He likes the feature a lot on his Samsung phone.

1001ET BLACKBERRY ENTERPRISE UPDATED TO AAPL IOS 11 MOBILE OPER SYSTEM

The stock ran up excitedly into the event…

1007ET APPLE TURNS POSITIVE AS PRODUCT EVENT BEGINS

1019ET Apple Watch – *FOSSIL SHARES DIP AS APPLE CLAIMS TOP POSITION IN WATCHES

*  *  *

As we detailed earlier, anticipation is sky high as CEO Tim Cook prepares to unveil Apple’s latest iPhones (and ‘one more things’) from The Steve Jobs Theater at the new Apple ‘spaceship’ Campus.

As CNET reports, for the past eight months, we’ve watched a parade of flagship phone launches, from power players like Samsung with the Galaxy S8 to scrappy players like Motorola with its family of Moto phones. Premium phones with not-so-premium prices like the OnePlus 5 have also competed for our attention.

Meanwhile, rumors about the next iPhone kept trickling out thanks to leakers and established publications alike.

Apple is set to cut through all the noise with the official unveiling of at least one new iPhone (and maybe more), as well as the rumored release of updates to the Apple Watch and Apple TV. There’s also a chance we get more details on the forthcoming HomePod smart speaker.

Live Feed (via CNET):

What are we expecting…

 A weekend leak of some unreleased iOS 11 code may have spoiled all the surprises Apple had in store for tech fiends at tomorrow’s big iPhone event, with John Gruber of Daring Fireball calling the leaker “the least-popular person in Cupertino.”

There is expected to be three new phones. Two will at least be modest upgrades to the iPhone 7, getting beefier chips and the like.

 

The phone people really care about — in imagination, if not necessarily spending plans (yet) — is the 10th anniversary version of the phone.

 

While Apple was typically quiet about its plans, by now the world has a pretty good sense of the feature set.

 

The phone is expected to be Apple’s first with an organic light-emitting diode, OLED, display, which will be larger at 5.8 inches, and sharper, than the previous LCD displays.

 

Hold on to your hats: Apple ditched the home button in the phone, which is expected to now be unlocked through facial-recognition technology.

 

The phone is also expected to offer wireless charging and 3D sensors that enhance the performance of coming augmented-reality apps.

What will the stock do?

UBS technology analyst Steven Milunovich says there’s a distinct pattern in how Apple’s stock price reacts to these product launches.

“Based on the last five iPhone announcements, the stock has a reasonably consistent pattern: down in the two weeks preceding the event; up/down 1-2% the day of the event; up between the event and launch (phone availability about two weeks later); weak in the two weeks post launch; and then up going into earnings,” he wrote in a note out Tuesday morning.

“We think there is somewhat greater near-term downside risk this time though we expect the stock to outperform over the next 6-12 months.”

Here’s how the stock has moved before, during, and after previous iPhone announcements, relative to the S&P 500:

Oil Prices Rise As OPEC Oil Production Declines In August

September 12, 2017 Irina Slav 0

OPEC’s crude oil production declined in August thanks to Saudi Arabia cutting more from its production, a person familiar with the figures told Bloomberg, adding the information came from four of six secondary sources that track the production rates of the cartel’s members. OPEC produced 30.004 million barrels daily last month, the source said, versus 30.113 million bpd in July, with Saudi Arabia, the group’s leader and biggest producer, reducing output to 10.022 million bpd, from 10.049 million bpd in July.

Blackstone’s Schwarzman: ‘I Was Accused by People of Being a Nazi’

At CNBC’s Delivering Alpha conference, Blackstone’s CEO, Stephen Schwarzman told Michelle Caruso-Cabrera that after the Charlottesville mayhem, he received hundreds of defamatory emails, many calling him a ‘nazi’, borrowing the narrative of the far left group ANTIFA. This is especially absurd, since he’s jewish.

But don’t let logic get in the way of all that pent up anger and hatred.

Schwarzman on being called a nazi by idiots and why he decided to disband the business council with the President, saying the public discourse applied too much pressure on the CEOs in the group — making it untenable.

‘Speechless’ Hasina lambastes Myanmar for atrocities

UKHIYA: The Bangladeshi prime minister demanded Tuesday that Myanmar allow the return of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who fled recent violence in Buddhist-majority nation — a crisis she said left her speechless.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh would offer the refugees temporary shelter and aid, but that Myanmar should soon “take their nationals back.”
“We will not tolerate injustice,” she said at a rally at the Kutupalong refugee camp, near the border town of Ukhiya in Cox’s Bazar district.
On Monday night, she lambasted Buddhist-majority Myanmar for “atrocities” that she said had reached a level beyond description, telling lawmakers she had “no words to condemn Myanmar.”
The crisis has drawn sharp criticism from around the world.
The UN human rights chief said Myanmar’s ethnic Rohingya minority was facing what “seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” UN rights investigators have been barred from entering the country.
“The Myanmar government should stop pretending that the Rohingya are setting fire to their own homes and laying waste to their own villages,” Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein said Monday in Geneva, calling it a “complete denial of reality.”
Meanwhile, a Rohingya villager in Myanmar said security forces had arrived Monday in the village of Pa Din village, firing guns, setting new fires to homes and driving hundreds of Rohingya to flee.
“People were scared and running out of the village,” the villager said, speaking on condition of anonymity out of fear for his safety.
Myanmar police disputed that, saying the houses were burned by terrorists they called Bengalis. That term is used derisively by many in Myanmar to describe the Rohingya, who they say migrated illegally from neighboring Bangladesh, though many Rohingya families have lived in Myanmar for generations.
Bangladesh has said it would free 2,000 acres of land for a new camp in Cox’s Bazar district, to help shelter newly arrived Rohingya. The government was also fingerprinting and registering new arrivals.
Kutupalong and another pre-existing Rohingya camps were already beyond capacity. Other new arrivals were staying in schools, or huddling in makeshift settlements with no toilets along roadsides and in open fields.
Basic resources were scarce, including food, clean water and medical aid.
Aid agencies have been overwhelmed by the influx of Rohingya, many of whom are arriving hungry and traumatized after walking days through jungles or being packed into rickety wooden boats in search of safety in Bangladesh.
Many tell similar stories — of Myanmar soldiers firing indiscriminately on their villages, burning their homes and warning them to leave or to die. Some say they were attacked by Buddhist mobs.
In the last two weeks, the government hospital in Cox’s Bazar has been overwhelmed by Rohingya patients, with 80 arriving in the last two weeks suffering gunshot wounds as well as bad infections.
At least three Rohingya have been wounded in land mine blasts, and dozens have drowned when boats capsized during sea crossings.
Myanmar’s authorities said more than a week ago that some 400 Rohingya — mostly insurgents — had died in clashes with troops, but it has offered no updated death toll since.
Rohingya have faced decades of discrimination and persecution in Myanmar and are denied citizenship despite centuries-olds roots in the Rakhine region.
Before Aug. 25, Bangladesh had already been housing some 500,000 Rohingya who arrived after bloody anti-Muslim rioting in 2012 or amid earlier persecution drives in Myanmar.
