Added Sugar, Subtracted Science: How Industry Obscures Science and Undermines Public Health... | UCSUSA | Information Management, Social Media & Data Security | Scoop.it
This report shows how sugar interests use a variety of tactics to prevent science-based policy on sugar.
Patrick Ciriello's insight:

Scientific evidence has shown that overconsumption of added sugar has serious health consequences: heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension have all been linked to high consumption of added sugar. And yet Americans continue to consume large amounts of hidden sugar every day, and our food policies do not reflect the scientific evidence on this health risk.

Apple: iOS, OS X and ‘key web services’ aren’t heartbleeding

Apple: iOS, OS X and ‘key web services’ aren’t heartbleeding | Information Management, Social Media & Data Security | Scoop.it
Following the revelation that hundreds of thousands of websites are susceptible to attacks based on the “Heartbleed” flaw in OpenSSL, Apple told Re/code that its operating systems including iOS and OS X, as well as unnamed “key” web-based services are not affected by the hack. “Apple takes security very seriously. IOS and OS X never incorporated the vulnerable software and key Web-based services were not affected,” an Apple spokesperson told the publication. While Apple would not say what those key web services are, 9to5Mac says it tested apple.com and various iTunes servers that host Apple’s online stores using an online tool that checks for Heartbleed and all of them are secure. The publication added that users who rely on a

The tiny padlock next to web addresses that promised to protect sensitive information is broken, a team of security researchers has discovered. Experts are examining how best to secure their users’ confidential data.
Patrick Ciriello's insight:

OOPS ....

 

Security researchers say they found evidence that suggests attackers were aware of the bug. Researchers monitoring various “honey pots” — stashes of fake data on the web aimed at luring hackers so researchers can learn more about their tools and techniques — found evidence that attackers had used the Heartbleed bug to access the fake data.

 

Actual victims may be out of luck. “Unless an attacker blackmails you, or publishes your information online, or steals a trade secret and uses it, you won’t know if you’ve been compromised,” Mr. Chartier said. “That’s what makes it so vicious.”

Astronomers have for the first time directly mapped out the molecular gas and dust in the host galaxies of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) — the biggest explosions in the universe. In a complete surprise, less gas was observed than expected, and correspondingly much more dust, making some GRBs appear as “dark GRBs”.
