Adela has been on Geocaching HQ’s marketing team since 2012. This is Adela’s account of her trip.By Adela Bahtijaragic, a.k.a. DellaBellThey say that half the geocaching journey is getting there. This much was true when I traveled to Port Aransas, Texas – home to Texas Challenge XI. Located deep in the heart of Texas, “Port A” was the place to be during the weekend of April 5. Geocachers in the great state of Texas, and beyond, gathered to celebrate what they love – geocaching.Over the course of 11 years, the challenge has grown into a fun-filled weekend comprised of activities for people who wish to compete in the contest or those simply looking to socialize and geocache around town. With plenty to see and do, I was lucky enough to have had my very own tour guide for the day. I got to hang out with the 2011 – 2013 Texas Geocaching Association (TXGA) President, De (of Team-DnD), who went above and beyond to make this an unforgettable day for me.Human log bookDe and I spent the day exploring the city, the beach, and local geocaches. She introduced me to members of the TXGA, seasoned and new geocachers, and a number of geocachers who attended from places as far away as Australia (firesafe). Of course, I took part in some of the creative Mega-Event challenges, including a joust with a knight from Monty Python’s Holy Grail.Adela and knight square offA bonfire gathering at the beach (GC454VH), which included a jalapeno eating contest, potluck, and limbo was the perfect way to end a busy day. We quickly figured out that the lack of a logbook was no problem. Thanks to Travis (SKnight579) and his Hawaiian shirt, turned geocaching “logbook,” we had a conversation piece and possibly even a new tradition for future after-challenge-events.I felt welcome and a part of a community I had never celebrated with before. The weekend of April 5 was only my very first trip to Texas, but also my very first Mega-Event. I could not have asked for a better group of people to embrace geocaching with. Their hospitality and love for geocaching goes beyond everything I expected.Texas Challenge XI Group Photolast_img read more

To be tackled are the formats of the Commissioner’s Cup and Governors’ Cup as well as other possible league activities.

10 months agoI’ll build my Man Utd team around Pogba – Solskjaer

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say I’ll build my Man Utd team around Pogba – Solskjaerby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Paul Pogba’s attitude and says he will build his team around the French midfielder.Pogba endured a fractious relationship with former manager Jose Mourinho, which was well publicised over the past 18 months.However, the 25-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Juventus in recent weeks, has looked renewed in Solskjaer’s first two games in charge, scoring twice in Wednesday’s win over Huddersfield Town.”I think Paul’s a top, top player. He’s one of the best top, top players in the world,” said Solskjaer in his pre-match press conference for Sunday’s clash with Bournemouth.”Attacking wise he’s done really well but he’s a big lad, can win headers, tackles, he’s been the same as the others. The attitude has been perfect and that’s key, you should be tired towards the end of every single game he’s been top class and we’re looking to build a team around of course but there are so many quality players.” last_img read more

Halifax police make arrest in breach of NS freedomofinformation website

first_imgHALIFAX – Halifax police have charged a 19-year-old Halifax man following a breach of Nova Scotia’s freedom-of-information web portal — a problem that went unnoticed until a provincial employee made a typing error, government officials confirmed Wednesday.Police Supt. Jim Perrin said the suspect is facing a charge of unauthorized use of a computer and was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.“It’s a seldom-laid charge,” Perrin told a news conference at police headquarters, adding that police had seized computers as the result of a search earlier in the day.In all, about 7,000 documents were inappropriately accessed between March 3 and March 5, Internal Services Minister Patricia Arab said Wednesday.“This is not great news,” she said.The admission came nearly a week after the problem was first noticed and the portal was shut down on April 5.Deputy minister Jeff Conrad said the government filed a complaint with police the next day.He confirmed that thousands of people could have been affected.Officials said about 250 of the documents contained highly sensitive personal information including birthdates, social insurance numbers, addresses and government services’ client information. Credit card information was not accessed, they said.Conrad said the breach was detected by a provincial employee, but it was a fluke.“The employee was involved in doing some research on the site and inadvertently made an entry to a line on the site — made a typing error and identified that they were seeing documents they should not have seen,” Conrad told a technical briefing.Officials said the documents were accessed through a “vulnerability in the system” and not through a hack. They said someone wrote a script of computer code that allowed them to sequentially access “every document available on the portal.”“There’s no question, this was not someone just playing around,” said Conrad. “It was someone who was intentionally after information that was housed on the site.”The government briefing on Wednesday came a day after the portal’s prolonged closure was raised in the legislature by Progressive Conservative house leader Chris d’Entremont.At the time, Arab offered little information, and later described the problem as “an issue” when talking with reporters outside the legislature.During Wednesday’s briefing, she said the proper protocol was followed, saying her department wanted to let the police investigation unfold.“We are here today because the police have made significant progress in regards to this case,” she said.Arab defended the department’s decision not to inform the public immediately.“We wanted the person responsible for this to not know that we knew that this had happened,” she said. “We needed to let Halifax Regional Police do their job and couldn’t compromise the nature of their investigation.”She also said the department decided to wait, based on police advice.However, Perrin said that wasn’t the case.“There was no conversation between us and the province about holding off and not telling anybody,” he said.Catherine Tully, Nova Scotia’s information and privacy commissioner, has launched an investigation to determine the adequacy of security and whether Arab’s department was in compliance with the province’s privacy law.D’Entremont said the government’s answers were unacceptable, adding that the 250 people whose sensitive information was compromised should have been informed by now.He later noted the discrepancy around the government’s explanation for holding off.“We know there probably would have been no problem in letting the public know there’s been a breach and we’re investigating it,” said d’Entremont. “Instead, they’ve said they waited for the police to do their investigation. I think they got things a little backwards and I think they are not being quite forthcoming the way they need to be.”In fact, the government’s privacy breach protocol says that “generally the notification should happen as soon as possible.” It adds that in cases where police are involved, they should be consulted to determine if a notification would interfere with an investigation.The government said it was beginning the process of contacting those affected by the breach.New Democrat Dave Wilson said it was alarming that breach was found inadvertently.“This wasn’t found out because of checks and balances and security … We heard today that this was found by fluke.”Government officials said the department’s cybersecurity team is working with third-party service providers Unisys and CSDC Systems to secure the site and get it back online.Premier Stephen McNeil defended the government’s handling of the security breach, saying Arab had his full confidence.last_img read more
