Life on the streets, a 12-year-old’s story

Many developing nations struggle with the problem of street children and only a few have made any meaningful impact in dealing with this global difficulty, a result of poverty, strife, displacement and war.

By Phyllis Mbanje

Zimbabwe is no exception and although over the years the number of these homeless children has gone down, there are still many children prowling the streets of the country’s towns and cities.

Recently I had an encounter with a 12-year-old street urchin who confirmed to me how these children have become part of that torn fabric of humanity that no one cares about.

I had bumped into this kid almost every morning when he would be huddled in a makeshift cardboard tent by the entrance of a hotel in the city centre.

Apple was actually inspired by a hacker – The untold story unfolds

APPLE the world’s most valuable company has made a series of terrific products over the past couple of years, but there are some things that you do not know about the tech giant; like how John Draper, aCOMPUTER programmer and known hacker was working for Apple’s Steve Wozniak in the early days of the company. Draper was known for his morally dubiousACTIVITIES right from the start, and when he got located to Silicon Valley, that is when he really started to shine. Both Wozniak and Jobs were able to locate Draper through a friend of Wozniak. So what is Draper known for; phreaking. For those who are unaware of this term, phreaking is a term used to hack, but instead of hacking aCOMPUTER system, it involves hacking a phone line in order to make long distance and international calls absolutely free. Using his knowledge, Draper developed a blue box, which is an electronic device whose primary purpose was to make free calls. Before Apple existed, Wozniak and Jobs had formed a business that made and sold blue boxes. Both wunderkinds claimed that this is the product that was the foundation of Apple’s success. According to Steve Jobs, he states the […]

Don’t Like a News Story? Pay a Chinese Hacker to Get It Deleted

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A novel business model involving government officials, policemen, website administrators, hackers, and thousands of middlemen was recently cracked down upon by Chinese authorities, leading to the dissolution of several gangs who engaged in the activity. Clients—government officials, business executives, celebrities, anyone looking to rid themselves of unwanted publicity—would use middlemen to hire computer hackers to penetrate the network of a news website or popular Internet forum, and delete posts or news articles upon request. A 6-month campaign run by the Chinese regime’s cyberspace authorities to root out the business has successfully concluded, the state-run Xinhua reported on Sept. 7. Hackers were usually contacted by middlemen, who can profit handsomely from this private censoring operation. Sometimes the deletion work was done with the assistance of the website administrator, who would take a fee to abuse his position and delete posts upon request by the client. The middlemen themselves are college students, professors, doctors, website editors, government officials and even police officers. The suspects revealed that they earned tens of millions of yuan every year, and that tens of thousands were active in this field. A report in Party mouthpiece People’s Daily said that over 50 million yuan (about $8 million) had […]

Spotlight review – Catholic church child abuse film decently tells an awful story

“If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse one,” is how one character here summarises the issues. This high-minded, well-intentioned movie, co-written and directed by Tom McCarthy, is about the Boston Globe’s investigative reporting team Spotlight, and its Pulitzer-winning campaign in 2001 to uncover widespread, systemic child abuse by Catholic priests in Massachusetts.

The film shows that in the close-knit, clubbably loyal and very Catholic city of Boston, no one had any great interest in breaking the queasy, shame-ridden silence that made the church’s culture of abuse possible, and even tentatively suggests that the Globe itself was one of the Read More
