Researchers show increased risk of predators can evoke adaptive response in birds

More information: Predation risk affects offspring growth via maternal effects, Michael Coslovsky, Heinz Richner, Functional Ecology, Article first published online: 1 March 2011. DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2435.2011.01834.xvia Nature. To get these results, Coslovsy and Richner went out into Bremgartenwald forest, near Bern and chose a group of great tits to use as a study group. They then exposed part of the group of mothers (during ovulation) to stuffed sparrow hawks and audio recordings of their calls; the control group was exposed to song thrushes. Two days after the nestlings hatched, they (both groups) were captured, tagged and carted off to another part of the forest to be raised by adoptive parents. As they grew, they were all monitored and it was then the researchers discovered that the offspring of stressed mothers were in fact smaller, as expected, but they also grew their wings at an unusually brisk pace, and grew them longer (1.8 millimeters on average) than other birds from the control group.Prior to this research, it’s been assumed that smaller growth in bird offspring is generally a negative effect brought about by a buildup of the stress hormone corticosterone. Now, with the news that smaller offspring also produce wings at an earlier age, and grow them longer, it might be argued that all three changes are nature’s way of helping the nestlings survive in a more hostile than normal environment; less weight, combined with longer wings at an earlier age, would seem to increase the nestling’s ability to fly away at a younger age, and to do so more speedily to ward off attacks.Of course, the results shown by Coslovsy and Richner are just one study, and have only been done on one species of bird; many more field trials will have to be made before any definitive conclusions can be drawn. Scientists shake Darwin’s foundation — chickens inherited parents’ stress symptoms (PhysOrg.com) — Evolutionary ecologists Michael Coslovsky and Heinz Richner of the University of Bern in Switzerland, have published a study in Functional Ecology where they show that when a female bird is exposed to more stress from predators, such as hawks, when ovulating, they tend to produce offspring that are smaller, which isn’t a surprise as stressed offspring in many species wind up smaller than average; the surprise is that the smaller offspring also grew their wings both faster and longer than what would be considered normal for their species.

RAMBleed A Rowhammerbased sidechannel attack that reads memory bits without accessing them

first_imgA team of academic researchers recently unveiled a new class of Rowhammer-based attack known as RAMBleed. This newly discovered side-channel attack allows attackers to read memory data on a victim’s Windows computer, without actually accessing the memory. This vulnerability listed as CVE-2019-0174 is called RAMBleed as the RAM “bleeds its contents, which we then recover through a side channel,” the researchers explained at the RAMBleed page. RAMBleed is used to read data from dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips. It leverages Rowhammer, a DRAM flaw which is exploited to cause bits in neighboring memory rows to flip their values. In their research paper titled “RAMBleed: Reading Bits in Memory Without Accessing Them“, the researchers have shown how an attacker, by observing Rowhammer-induced bit flips in her own memory, can deduce the values in nearby DRAM rows. Thus, researchers say that RAMBleed shifts Rowhammer from being a threat not only to integrity but confidentiality as well. This paper will be presented at the 41st IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy in May 2020. The researchers also said that they have successfully used RAMBleed to obtain a signing key from an OpenSSH server or rather leaked a 2048-bit RSA key using normal user privileges, enabling information to be taken from targeted devices.  To do so, “we also developed memory massaging methods and a technique called Frame Feng Shui that allows an attacker to place the victim’s secret-containing pages in chosen physical frames.”, the researchers mention in their paper. Source: RAMBleed.com Any system that uses Rowhammer-susceptible DIMMs is vulnerable to RAMBleed. Machines with memory chips “both DDR3 and DDR4 with TRR (targeted row refresh) enabled” are vulnerable. Users can mitigate their risk by upgrading their memory to DDR4 with targeted row refresh (TRR) enabled. Intel revealed a piece of mitigation advice for researchers in an article and further suggested that “Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) can be used to protect systems from RAMBleed attacks.” Oracle, in their blog post, state that machines running DDR2 and DDR1 memory chips aren’t affected. “successfully leveraging RAMBleed exploits require that the malicious attacker be able to locally execute malicious code against the targeted system,” Oracle states. No additional security patches are expected for Oracle product distributions, the company said. Red Hat, in an article, state that there are at least three known DRAM fault exploits, “Rowhammer,” “Spoiler” and “RAMBleed.” Mitigation approach depends on the hardware vendor, according to RedHat: There are a few commonly proposed hardware-based mitigations against Rowhammer that have potential to also mitigate RAMBleed. These are Targeted Row Refresh (TRR), increased DRAM refresh intervals (doubled DRAM refresh rate), and use of ECC memory. The extent to which these strategies may actually mitigate the problem varies and is hardware platform specific. Vendors are anticipated to provide suitable platform-specific guidance.

Underworld saint becoming more popular in US

first_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home U.S. Marshal Robert Almonte in West Texas said he has testified about La Santa Muerte in at least five drug trafficking cases where her image aided prosecutors with convictions. Last year, Almonte testified that a Santa Muerte statue prayer card, found with a kilogram of methamphetamine in a couple’s car in New Mexico, were “tools of the trade” for drug traffickers to protect them from law enforcement. The testimony was used to help convict the couple of drug trafficking.Almonte has visited shrines throughout Mexico, and given workshops to law enforcement agencies on the cult of the saint.“Criminals pray to La Santa Muerte to protect them from law enforcement,” Almonte said. “But there are good people who pray to her who aren’t involved in any criminal activity so we have to be careful.”Devotees say La Santa Muerte has helped them find love, find better jobs and launch careers.Gregory Beasley Jr., 35, believes he landed acting roles on “Breaking Bad” and the 2008 movie “Linewatch” after a traditional Mexican-American healer introduced him to La Santa Muerte.“All my success … I owe to her,” he said. “She cleansed me and showed me the way.” (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) For decades, though, La Santa Muerte remained an underground figure in isolated regions of Mexico and served largely as an unofficial Catholic saint that women called upon to help with cheating spouses, Chesnut said.It wasn’t until 2001 when a devotee unveiled a public La Santa Muerte shrine in Mexico City that followers in greater numbers began to display their devotion for helping them with relationships and loved ones in prison. Economic uncertainty and a violent drug war against cartels that has claimed an estimated 40,000 lives also are credited for La Santa Muerte’s growth.Oscar Hagelsieb, assistant special agent in charge for Homeland Security Investigations in El Paso, said agents have found that most members of the Gulf and Zeta Cartels mainly pray to Santa Muerte while those from the Sinaloa and Sonora Cartels honor folk saint Jesus Malverde.“Altars are very intricate. We have found some with food and others with blood from animals,” Hagelsieb said.The association with cartels and denunciations by some priests has resulted in some non-devotees destroying makeshift roadside altars. Recently, assailants smashed a life-size statue of La Santa Muerte in a South Texas cemetery. Police in Pasadena, Calif. recently found human bones at a home with a Santa Muerte altar outside. The owners say they bought the bones online. But the vast majority of devotees aren’t crooks.Kiko Torres, owner of the Masks y Mas art store in Albuquerque, said sales of La Santa Muerte statues, incense, and oils have skyrocketed in recent months.“Most people who buy the stuff are regular people who just recently found out about her,” he said. “Some probably have no idea about her connection to that other world.”One such devotee is Steven Bragg, 36, who said he was introduced to La Santa Muerte in 2009 and began praying to her for a variety of different reasons, including a plea for a life companion. Recently, the New Orleans man built a public chapel to her and holds rosary services that attract around a dozen people.He also just formed a nonprofit to support the “New Orleans Chapel of the Santisima Muerte,” the official name of his public altar.“It’s something I decided to do after all that La Santa Muerte has provided,” Bragg said. “She has never failed me.”___Follow Russell Contreras at http://twitter.com/russcontreras Clad in a black nun’s robe and holding a scythe in one hand, Santa Muerte appeals to people seeking all manner of otherworldly help: from fending off wrongdoing and carrying out vengeance to stopping lovers from cheating and landing better jobs. And others seek her protection for their drug shipments and to ward off law enforcement.“Her growth in the United States has been extraordinary,” said Andrew Chesnut, author of “Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, the Skeleton Saint” and the Bishop Walter F. Sullivan Chair in Catholic Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. “Because you can ask her for anything, she has mass appeal and is now gaining a diverse group of followers throughout the country. She’s the ultimate multi-tasker.”Exact numbers of her followers are impossible to determine, but they are clearly growing, Chesnut said.The saint is especially popular among Mexican-American Catholics, rivaling that of St. Jude and La Virgen de Guadalupe as a favorite for miracle requests, even as the Catholic Church in Mexico denounces Santa Muerte as satanic, experts say.Her image has been used on prayers cards citing vengeance and protection, which are sometimes found at scenes of massacred bodies and on shipments of drugs. Comments   Share   Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Sponsored Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – A follower in New Orleans built a public shrine in her honor. An actor in Albuquerque credits her with helping him land a role on the TV show “Breaking Bad.” She turns up routinely along the U.S.-Mexico border at safe houses, and is sighted on dashboards of cars used to smuggle methamphetamine through the southwest desert.Popular in Mexico, and sometimes linked to the illicit drug trade, the skeleton saint known as La Santa Muerte in recent years has found a robust and diverse following north of the border: immigrant small business owners, artists, gay activists and the poor, among others _ many of them non-Latinos and not all involved with organized religion. Top Stories Some devotees pray to the saint by building altars and offering votive candles, fruits, tequila, cigarettes _ even lines of cocaine in some cases _ in exchange for wishes, Chesnut said. A red La Santa Muerte, her best-selling image, helps in matters of love. Gold ones aid with employment and white ones give protection. Meanwhile, a black Santa Muerte can provide vengeance.“She’s my queen,” said Arely Vazquez Gonzalez, a Mexican immigrant and transgender woman who oversees a large altar inside her Queens, New York apartment. Against one wall of her bedroom altar is a tall, sitting Santa Muerte statue in a black dress surrounded by offerings of tequila.Gonzalez, who sports a tattoo of La Santa Muerte on her back, holds an annual event in August in the saint’s honor, with mariachis and a feast.“All I have to do I ask for her guidance and she provides me with what I need,” she said.The origins of La Santa Muerte are unclear. Some followers say she is an incarnation of an Aztec goddess of death who ruled the underworld. Some scholars say she originated in medieval Spain through the image of La Parca, a female Grim Reaper, who was used by friars for the later evangelization of indigenous populations in the Americas.

Consul General of India pays special visit to Ladysmith

first_imgA mayoral reception was held at the Crown Hotel on Friday to honour the newly-appointed Consul General of India, Durban, Mr Rajagopalan Raghunathan. Local religious leaders, business owners and ward councillors were guests at the event, and were afforded the opportunity of meeting and networking with the other attendees.The evening’s programme included opening prayers by three different religious leaders, namely Guru Krishnamoorthy, Moulana Aleem Akleker and Pastor Garridegan, which highlighted the diversity (‘Rainbow Nation’) South Africa is renowned for. Programme director Rosheila Thomas fulfilled her duty excellently by introducing other speakers such as Councillor Zehra Rassool, who officially welcomed the guests, and Mr TB Xaba, who provided an insightful presentation on an economic development plan in Ladysmith. Mayor Vincent Madlala mirrored the sentiments of the guests by saying to distinguished guest Mr Raghunathan, “May God be with you for being with us today.” The keynote address, which was delivered by Mr Raghunathan himself, began on a light-hearted note when he said, “Besides their cricket, South Africa and India are no different.” He said he is impressed with the potential of Ladysmith in terms of development, and the potential of the town as a tourism industry and an agricultural powerhouse.After the programme concluded, guests were treated to a delicious meal. It was an enjoyable evening for all, as everyone was allowed to interact with prestigious guest Mr Raghunathan.

These Broyles Award speeches will be the best coaching education you

first_imgGene Chizik, North Carolina defensive coordinatorMoney quote: “Family is the most important thing…. We have a perception about us as coaches and we get liked or disliked, basically, in direct proportion to how many wins or losses we have. That’s the way it is. It’s never changing. People don’t know you. People have no idea who you are as a person. They like you or dislike you based on your record. Right? That’s the way it goes. But unfortunately, the wives are left at home to pick up the pieces for the kids that don’t really understand that. ‘Why do they hate Daddy?’ Or, ‘why do they love Daddy?’ Well, it’s because you won 13 games. They have to be the stronghold, and they have to be the head coach of the house, and it is an unbelievable task. I said when I got let go at Auburn, ‘Before I let anything affect my family, I’ll lay asphalt.’ I don’t care what I’ll do but I’m not letting anything get to my family.”Brent Venables, Clemson defensive coordinatorMoney quote: “The most powerful that thing I’ve received from my coaches was the power of belief. I knew my coaches believed in me. To take that one tool for the rest of my life has really helped me become who I am. It wasn’t saying, ‘Hey, I believe in you, Brent.’ It was how he loved me, how he respected me, how he treated me, how he talked to me.”Kendal Briles, Baylor offensive coordinatorMoney quote: “Like a lot of us (who) played high school football, I had the opportunity to play high school football for my dad, who was the head football coach, I was the quarterback. A one-horse town. It’s an interesting dynamic. You better win games or you’ll get ridiculed pretty bad.”And the winner:Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma offensive coordinatorMoney quote: “Ten years ago I was a student assistant, which is a volunteer coach. My dad was not a big-name high school coach, I was not a big-name recruit. I had no ins to the business. I happened to get an opportunity and took it and ran with it. I know there’s a lot of young coaches out there today that are like me and think something like this is never possible. This profession is tough, it’s a grind, it’s trying, but it’s worth it. If you’ll keep firing away, if you’ll surround yourself with good people like I’ve been able to do, if you’ll keep your mouth shut and just listen and learn, you can really take this thing a long way.” For obvious reasons, there aren’t many coaching clinics between the months of September and December. That means the annual Broyles Award ceremony, where the folks in the Rotary Club of Little Rock are smart enough to make each finalist give a speech, is the best coaching clinic there is during the season.This year’s finalists represented the entire spectrum of career stations — young, up-and-coming coaches, career coordinators who will become head coaches soon, and a former head coach now working on someone else’s staff.We’ve posted each of the four finalists’ (former Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart didn’t make it to Little Rock) speeches below, while pulling out the best nuggets of wisdom for you to take and apply to your own career.
