ROCK Fest na Uni 2012

Festival se održava u Novom Gradu na sjeverozapadu BiH. Iako se održavao i ranije u nekoliko navrata i pod drugim nazivima, ovaj put uz izmjenjen karakter želimo konačno da ga postavimo na stabilne noge (opet uz skroman početak), ovaj put uz pomoć Omladinske Banke Novi Grad koja je dala pola sredstava i MONO-a. Potrebno je da se mladima u Novom Gradu i šire pruži nešto drugačije i autentično.
Za mjesto održavanja odabran je stadion Mlakve u Novom Gradu, tačnije parking stadiona. Udaljen od centra grada oko

1,5 km ili 15ak min. hoda. Smješten je uz samu rijeku Unu (jedna od najljepših i najčistijih u BiH) gdje se mogu naći odlična mjesta za kamp, roštilj i kupanje (naravno sve je stvar vašeg izbora). Svakako će te se naći u dobrom društvu sa hladnim pivom i dobrom MUZIKOM.
Potreba za promocijom AUTORSKIH, (neafirmisanih), ALTERNATIVNIH muzičkih bendova iz grada predstavlja inicijalnu ideju u organizovanju ROCK festa NA UNI.
To je ujedno i želja da se kroz muzički izražaj prenese jasna i glasna poruka društvu i okruženju u kojem žive, da su mladi ljudi svjesni svoje pozicije i da im se omogući da daju svoj doprinos kulturi čiji su dio.

Nagrađeni video sa konkursa (Under)represented

Konkursom su se tražile nove i originalne teme u kojima kandidati predstavljaju svoj pogled na svijet, društvene pojave, probleme i teme od javnog interesa koje su uočili. Ključno je bilo da video-priča predoči novi aspekt, analizira stanje iz nove perspektive, otvori nova pitanja i finalno postavi određenu temu u žižu javnosti.

Four hack suspects linked to terrorist group

The FBI and Philippine law enforcement officials arrested four people in the Philippines this week who were allegedly paid by terrorists to hack into AT&T’s system, but the company said its system was not breached.

The four, who were arrested Wednesday in Manila, were paid by the same Saudi Arabian-based terrorist group identified by the FBI as funding the 2008 attack on Mumbai, the Philippines’ Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) said in a statement. The coordinated attacks in India’s largest city claimed 164 lives and wounded at least 308.

“The hacking activity resulted in almost $2 million in losses incurred by the company,” the CIDG said in a statement.

The suspects hacked the trunk-like PBX (private branch exchange) phone lines of different telecommunications companies, including AT&T, the CIDG said. Money stolen in the hacks was diverted to bank accounts belonging to the terrorists, who paid the Filipino hackers on commission, the group said.

The four allegedly worked for a group originally run by Muhammad Zamir, a Pakistani arrested by the FBI in 2007 who was associated with Jemaah Islamiah, a Southeast Asian militant group with links to Al Qaeda.

“Zamir’s group, later tagged by the FBI to be the financial source of the terrorist attack in Mumbai, India, on November 26, 2008, is also the same group that paid Kwan’s group of hackers in Manila,” Police Senior Superintendent Gilbert Sosa said in the statement.

An AT&T representative told Reuters that it “ended up writing off some fraudulent charges that appeared on customer bills” but did not comment on the $2 million figure.

“AT&T and its network were neither targeted nor breached by the hackers,” AT&T spokeswoman Jan Rasmussen said. “AT&T only assisted law enforcement in the investigation that led to the arrest of a group of hackers.”

The FBI requested the CIDG’s assistance in March after discovering the hacking group had targeted AT&T in the U.S., the CIDG said.

Earlier in the week, AT&T said it thwarted an attempt to steal mobile customer data and that no accounts were breached.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation seeks grants proposals to transform health and agricultural development in the world’s poorest countries / deadline 17 nov 2011/

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is seeking proposals for Round 8 of its Grand Challenges Explorations. The initiative is the part of a $100 million in grants aimed at encouraging innovation in the fields of global health and development research.

The initiative invites scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs from around the world to submit proposals for the opportunity to win $100,000 in grant and pursue their unconventional ideas aimed at transforming health and agricultural development in the world’s poorest countries.

Topics of Grand Challenges Explorations Round 8

  • Protect Crop Plants from Biotic Stresses From Field to Market
  • Explore Nutrition for Healthy Growth of Infants and Children
  • Apply Synthetic Biology to Global Health Challenges
  • Design New Approaches to Optimize Immunization Systems
  • Explore New Solutions in Global Health Priority Areas

Eligibility

Grand Challenges Explorations seeks to involve innovators around the world, including researchers who do not typically work in global health and development; those with innovative ideas in Africa, Asia and other parts of the developing world; people working in the private sector; and young investigators.

Selection Criteria and Grants

The initiative uses a streamlined, straightforward, online grant-making process.  The proposal process makes it easy to apply.  Applications are two pages, and preliminary data about the proposed research are not required.

Grand Challenges Explorations is a unique initiative that supports innovative research of unorthodox ideas. Every aspect of the program, including the carefully designed topics describing critical scientific barriers to progress in global health, the two-page online application, and the rapid review process, are designed to swiftly award funding to scientists who are testing unproven ideas that could lead to breakthroughs in global health.

The Gates Foundation and an independent group of reviewers will select the most innovative proposals, and grants will be awarded within approximately four months from the proposal submission deadline. Initial grants will be $100,000 USD each. Projects showing success will have the opportunity to receive additional funding up to $1 million over two years.
