The White House


Last week,  in the Rose Garden, President Obama announced that enough countries have acted to bring the Paris Agreement into force -- a historic step forward in saving the one planet we’ve got. Watch his remarks:

On the eve of this week's Gate Safety Week - a campaign drawing public attention to unsafe gates - a company was fined half a million pounds after a man was killed by a gate in Wales.

The sentence was imposed on wholesale company AF Blakemore and Son Ltd on Friday, October 7 at Cardiff Crown Court. The company admitted a breach of the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974). Delivery driver Ronald Hayward died when he was pinned under a 300 kg (660 lb) steel gate that collapsed at their premises in Newport. The company admitted failing to ensure that the gates and gateposts were maintained and were in working order.

A large proportion of police websites lack any form of automatic secure connection, meaning potentially sensitive data is communicated in plain unencrypted text - according to research.

Findings from non-profit body the Centre for Public Safety, revealed that 73% of websites accessed either lacked a secure connection for visitors or their implementation was deemed insecure. Only 27% demonstrated the highest "world-class" standard of secure connection, said the report. Richard Cassidy, UK cyber security evangelist at Alert Logic, comments:
