Israel;s Water Authority stated that the attacked facilities were specific, small, drainage installations in the agriculture sector that were independently repaired, therefore causing no harm. However, April;s attack ended with threat actors gaining access to water treatment systems, attempting to alter chlorine levels. If the attempt had been successful, the threat actors could have caused the poisoning of the local population.Read More: Two more cyber attacks hit Israel ''s water system
;These were specific, small drainage installations in the agriculture sector that were immediately and independently repaired by the locals, causing no harm to serve or any real world effects,; the Water Authority said in a statement. Officials did not say who carried out the attacks on the pump stations, but the attacks come amid a reportedly escalating tit for tat between Israel and Iran following an alleged April attack by Tehran on Israel;s drinking water. The purple pipes bringing desalinated water to the agricultural enclaves located on the land designated as nature reserves. (Amir Ben David Zman Yisrael) According to reports in Israeli and Western media outlets, Iran tried to hack into Israel;s water system in April and poison the water by increasing chlorine levels in water flowing to residential areas. Speaking to the British newspaper Financial Times, an unnamed Western intelligence official said in early June that hundreds of people would have been at risk of getting sick and that the attack had come close to succeeding. The head of Israel s National Cyber Directorate hinted that the attack might have aimed to mix chlorine or other chemicals into the water supply. Additionally there was a chance that the attack would have triggered a fail safe, shutting down the pumps and leaving thousands without water during a severe heatwave. It was more sophisticated than they Israel initially thought, the Western official said. It was close to successful, and it s not fully clear why it didn t succeed. Yoav Barkay Arbel, a water engineer at Mekorot, stands next to water pipes on June 6, 2019. The pipes in the process of being laid will pump desalinated water from the Eshkol plant in northern Israel to the Sea of Galilee in about four or five years. (Melanie Lidman Times of Israel) An unnamed Israeli official told the Financial Times at the time that the attack created an unpredictable risk scenario by starting a tit for tat wave of attacks on civilian infrastructure, something both countries had so far avoided.The Western official and four Israeli officials, who were all briefed on the attack and all remained anonymous, told the newspaper that the Iranians hacked into the software that runs the pumps after routing through American and European servers to hide the source.
Osama bin Laden s Syrian mother was one of the many wives of his millionaire Yemeni father. While his brothers went to the West for higher education, Osama preferred going to Jeddah s Abdel Aziz University where his fondness for Islamic studies was spurred by two charismatic teachers, Muhammad Qutb and Abdallah Azzam the first an Egyptian, a brother of the great Ikhwan leader, Syed Qutb and the second, a Palestinian who merged the Qutb doctrine of jahiliyya (ignorance) with modern jihad against the West.Osama came to Peshawar in 1980 to conduct jihad against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. By 1984, Osama got used to spending a lot of time in Peshawar, renting a number of guest houses in the city, and frequenting the office of Al Jihad, the Arabic newspaper that his mentor Azzam was bringing out from Peshawar. (Azzam later gave Pakistan a university in Islamabad that only spread extremism in a state that needed moderate thinking.) Osama s jihad against the Soviets received a setback in 1989 when the mujahideen suffered a defeat at Jalalabad.
It was April, and I was in Augusta, Georgia, preparing for the Masters. Back home in Virginia, my wife Audrey, felt like she was coming down with a bad cold. But her temperature didn''t relent after two days, her blood pressure had dropped and her heart was beating 140 times a minute. Normal is between 60 and 100.We rushed her to the hospital as she was unable to breathe on her own. Doctors feared, and ultimately confirmed, that she had sepsis, which is essentially blood poisoning. It happens when an infection you already have somewhere else starts a chain reaction throughout the body.

The verdict of Delhi will be known today. These election results of this half state will not only decide its rulers for five years but will also leave a new imprint on the huge canvas of Indian democracy.The poisoning that took place in full view during the election campaigning must be fresh in your memory. It was campaigning for Delhi state elections but the issues were being determined as if for the entire country. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had in a way fielded the entire brigade of nationalists. In the seven decade long history of Indian democracy, it was perhaps for the first time that a party had deputed nearly 250 of its MPs for a contest over 70 assembly seats. During the campaigning, the party s former president and home minister Amit Shah used all his might. Like a common party worker, he went door to door, addressed all small and big gatherings in support of the party s candidates and tried to convey his message through rallies. Yogi Adityanath, the firebrand chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, also addressed 12 election rallies. The entire focus of these leaders was to turn the majority of voters in their favour. The BJP always tries to convey that it wants to win numbers for the majority community. Others try to win a majority for numbers.

Los Angeles can be treacherous for mountain lions. Poisons, wildfires and endless streams of traffic all make navigating the urban landscape to seek out what remains of the wild a difficult task. And dealing with both may have gotten P 61 killed. The mountain lion, collared and enrolled in the longtime National Park Service study of the pumas, may have encountered an uncollared mountain lion, believed to be roaming in the hills east of the 405. Pumas are brutally territorial. P 61 may have retreated from the eastern hills to save his own life only to die in traffic trying to get to safe territory.It s a sad reminder that, if we value the presence of these wild animals in our midst, we have to work harder to make it easier for them to survive. The California Legislature just squandered a great opportunity to protect mountain lions by stalling a bill that would have banned second generation anticoagulant rodenticides. Mountain lions that eat animals killed by the rat poison end up sick or dead themselves. It s ridiculous that legislators caved to the pesticide industry on this.
A new report, first published by the Miami Herald, claims that the golf course Inter Miami plans to build the new stadium on has dangerous levels of arsenic, barium, and lead in the soil. According to the Herald, a consulting environmental agency hired by the franchise to test the site s soil discovered that the underground contamination is pervasive and, in some places, up to twice the regulatory allowed amount for arsenic. The report also found a variety of debris within the soil at the site, which is covered with ash from an incinerator that was shut down years before. Seems pretty bad The city of Miami is calling for another round of testing, also to be paid for by the team, but as it stands now, the golf course is unsafe for Inter Miami s plans. That puts the future of the stadium site in jeopardy; Miami mayor Francis Suarez says cleaning up the site could cost upwards of $50 million before any construction can begin. Prior to Monday s findings, the club expected to spend about $35 million to clean up the site for the proposed $1 billion commercial and stadium complex.
