#deepweb | Iditarod Teams Yet To Reach Nome Face Overflow, Three Mushers and Their Dogs Rescued – KNOM Radio Mission

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Earlier today Sean Underwood, Tom Knolmayer, and Matthew Failor requested assistance from race staff after they went through a section of trail with deep overflow from the Solomon River, outside of Nome.

According to Chas St. George, COO of Iditarod, the incident
occurred sometime last night, but the group of teams didn’t activate their
emergency beacons until about 9am this morning.

“Once that was set off, we immediately tried to find out exactly what was happening out there and that led us to realize, a few texts were exchanged and that led us to realize we needed to get in there and get them out of the situation they were in.”

A minimal statement from the Iditarod says Underwood, Knolmayer, and Failor were rescued by helicopter from a section of trail outside of Safety Roadhouse. Safety is the final checkpoint in the 1,000 mile race, which mushers normally cruise through before finishing in Nome. Local Search and Rescue officials confirm the three men were rescued by air guard and brought into town around 1pm.

The mushers were checked into Norton Sound Regional Hospital in Nome and evaluated for precautionary measures. As far as St. George knows, Underwood, Knolmayer, and Failor are doing fine.

“From our periphery they’re okay, and that’s what counts. And also of course, again, the dogs who are first and foremost in this whole equation are doing just fine as well. So everybody should be reunited in Nome in the not too distant future.”

The COO says the plan is to keep the three dog teams,
totaling 28 four-legged athletes, at Safety Roadhouse until Iditarod staff can determine
if they will snowmachine the dogs to Nome or transport them by some other
means.

With temperatures warming up to the mid-30s, melting snow, and high winds in the Nome area within the last 24 hours, water overflow is expected to linger near Safety and even closer to Nome’s shoreline.

According to St. George, the Iditarod will reroute the existing
trail so the last 11 teams, who are all currently resting in Elim, can avoid this
dangerous area.

“We’re actually going to put in a trail that’s just adjacent to the trail that exists already. That looks like there is no overflow in that area, and we’re just going to bypass it basically. That will be done well before the next wave of mushers head up the trail.”

Each of the latest four Iditarod teams to finish in Nome yesterday afternoon told KNOM about their struggles going through other ledes of open water during their run in from Safety to the finish line. So far, 23 out of 37 remaining teams have completed this year’s Iditarod race.

One particularly challenging are of overflow is located at the bottom of a local snow ramp, which mushers use to access Front street and cross into the city for their race-finish in Nome. Iditarod staff have since setup an alternate overland section of trail that avoids that area.

KNOM’s JoJo Phillips also contributed to this report.

Date published: 05 March 2020


Three students from Whitworth Community High School got to pit their skills against other schools in the semi-final of a national competition held at PricewaterhouseCoopers office in Leeds.

Grace Campbell-Ousey, 12, Skye Wilkinson, 12, and Elizabeth Gack, 12, were selected for the second round of the The CyberFirst Girls Competition, set up by GCHQ’s National Cyber Security Centre.

The competition is aimed at promoting the industry as a career option to girls to increase diversity in the workforce.

Skye said: “The top 12 girls were split into groups of three for the first part of the competition which we completed online.

“We had four categories, networking, logic and coding, cryptography and cyber security, and we had a series of tasks at beginner, intermediate and expert levels.

“There was a lot of pressure and we had four hours, with a break for lunch, in which to complete as many tasks as we could.”

Both Grace and Elizabeth said they enjoyed the networking tasks best, but Grace said the cryptography was hard. Although all the tasks offered hints, they resulted in points being deducted if they were used.

Skye said: “My favourite part was speaking to the people who were running the competition and I learnt a lot from what they had to say.”

The competition certainly inspired Skye and Grace because they have both signed up for a development day workshop at a university in June and they are looking at computing careers.

Helping #insureds reach #corporate levels of #cyber security’ at #home

Source: National Cyber Security News

Cyber security has become a top of mind issue for commercial organizations across the world. Most big corporations have strong disciplines and risk management procedures in place to ensure cyber resilience is tight. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for a typical home network.

Poor cyber hygiene at home is the gateway that enables cyber criminals to get personal. An open home Wi-Fi connection versus a password protected system could make all the difference if a bad actor attempts to hack a personal bank account or bitcoin wallet.

High net worth (HNW) individuals with deep pockets are particularly at risk of personal cyberattacks. Member-owned PURE Insurance, which serves HNW clients, has developed an innovative cyber fraud offering to protect PURE members from falling prey to cybercrime.

PURE Starling, available as an add-on to homeowners’ insurance, provides broad coverage for fraud and cybercrime, including financial loss resulting from online and offline fraud, and services to help assess and respond to cyber extortion threats, remove malware and reinstall software after an attack.

“The issue of cyber insurance was born out of feedback from our PURE members, who were starting to express concerns about data security and the privacy of their personal information,” explained Martin Hartley, chief operating officer, PURE.

Jury yet to reach verdict in Stephen Casaus trial

After nearly five hours of deliberation, the jury in the Stephen Casaus trial did not reach a verdict Wednesday.

The jury will decide Stephen Casaus’ fate. They began deliberating Wednesday afternoon, deciding if he’s responsible for the death of his 9-year-old stepson, Omaree Varela.

The judge sent the jury home at five in the afternoon. They will come back to deliberate at 8:30 in the morning Thursday.

In closing arguments, prosecutors and the defense gave two very different versions of what happened back in December 2013 when Omaree was kicked to death.

Prosecutors said Casaus physically abused Omaree, along with his wife, Synthia Varela Casaus.

A watchful Regina gas station clerk has foiled what police believe to be an attempted credit card scam — one that could have implications that reach beyond this province.

Richardson, 23, 220 Nave Hollow Loop, Elizabethton, was with fraudulent use of a credit or debit card and theft of property over $1,000.

Richardson turned herself in Tuesday at the Washington County Detention Center, where she was held on $20,000 bond. She was arraigned Wednesday in Sessions Court. Tuesday’s arrest was not Richardson’s first in Johnson City: — In August 2013, she was charged with shoplifting. — In January 2014, Richardson was charged with aggravated assault. — In February 2014, she was one of two people arrested when police found drugs at a Johnson City hotel. Richardson and Terelle Sanders were each charged with possession of schedule II drugs for resale, possession of schedule VI drugs for resale and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police said the arrests resulted from a “knock and talk” at a room at the Double Tree Hotel, 211 Mockingbird Lane. […]
