If you’re a member of the Kardashian family, you know there’s nothing more important than a good glam team. 

North West, 2, and Penelope Disick, 3, clearly already have a better hair and makeup crew than most, as the two little gals have been rocking what look like extensions for a little while.  

It appears Khloe Kardashian might have something to do with P’s hair, since she Instagrammed a photo of the two twinning a few days ago with the caption, “I made her my mini me!!”

ISIS to unleash TENS OF MILLIONS of jihadi hackers on West in blitz worse than NUCLEAR WAR

The computer security expert, who invented the McAfee anti-virus software, claimed “fifteen to 25 percent” of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims are extremists, meaning ISIS could have an army of 400 million fanatical followers ready to strike at any minute.  Computer boffins at the terrorists’ headquarters in Raqqa have developed a secret smartphone application designed to spread Islamist propaganda and help followers carry out terrorist attacks from the comfort of their own homes. A team which may have included British hacker Junaid Hussain invented a feature which allows even the most computer illiterate of jihadis to launch sophisticated Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against websites. DDoS attacks work by flooding a site with fake traffic, causing it to grind to a halt, and have been successfully used against some of the world’s biggest companies and government departments. Experts now believe that ISIS hackers carried out a major test of the app’s capabilities last week by launching an audacious attempt to bring down the 13 root servers which keep the Internet running worldwide. Whilst the attack ultimately failed, it did temporarily slow down services across the globe and has been described as an unprecedented attempt to strike at the heart […]

How Ebola led to more teenage pregnancy in West Africa

While the Ebola outbreak raged through Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea in the summer of 2014, public life ground to a halt. The danger of congregating in groups meant that public institutions, like schools, shut down. But the months of sickness and segregation left a legacy for girls that’s only now starting to be felt: teenage pregnancy spiked, and some of the girls are now being victimized by the government’s education policies.

Data on teenage pregnancy in West Africa is difficult to obtain, especially as it’s often stigmatized and underreported. But Plan International, a children’s charity, said back in 2014 that teenage pregnancy rates in West Africa—already among some of the world’s highest—were on the rise.

West Boca nanny killer gets 90 years in home-invasion case

Lorraine Childress says she continues to have panic attacks, and repeatedly checks the locks on her doors each night — more than 11-1/2 years after an intruder attacked her and her husband at knifepoint.

But now she’s thankful a Palm Beach County jury last week convicted Jerry Wiggins — who previously gained notoriety for raping and killing a West Boca nanny — in the July 11, 2003 pre-dawn home invasion near Lantana.

Your home is supposed to be your safe place,” Childress told Circuit Judge Stephen Rapp Tuesday, just before Wiggins received a 90-year sentence for his latest convictions. “But after the horrible things that happened in our world, for me that is not so anymore.

Cyberattacks in West Africa spark debate over online security

A wave of cyberattacks aimed at government-related websites in Nigeria, Ghana and Senegal over the last two months has triggered a debate over how to bolster online security and deal with politically motivated hacking. A popular Senegalese news site, Seneweb and the website of the government’s ICT management agency, L’Agence De l’Informatique de l’Etat (ADIE), were the first to be hacked in the latest round of attacks, in December and January, respectively (though the Seneweb hack was not disclosed until January). The attacks were reportedly launched in response to Senegalese President Macky Sall’s participation in a rally in support of the French magazine, Charlie Hebdo. Twelve people were killed on Jan. 7 by two heavily armed men at the Paris office of satirical news weekly Charlie Hebdo. The attack was reportedly prompted by satirical material involving Muslim themes and historical figures. Security News From CIO.com Ghana’s deputy minister of communications, Ato Sarpong, confirmed on Jan. 21 that the government portal ghana.gov, which hosts 58 websites for ministries, departments and agencies, was successfully attacked by a hacker known as Alsancak Tim, from Turkey.
