Google Maps Street ViewBY: KARMA ALLEN, ABC News(MIAMI) — Police arrested a Miami high school student on Thursday for allegedly carrying out a string of crippling cyberattacks targeting Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ online learning system as students headed back to school.The 16-year-old has not been identified by name, but the student is a junior at South Miami Senior High School in Miami-Dade County, Florida, school officials said Thursday.Officials with Miami-Dade County Public Schools said the teen carried out several Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks, which are designed to disrupt a network’s server by overwhelming it’s system with a flood of internet traffic.The suspect was charged with Computer Use in an Attempt to Defraud — a third-degree felony, and Interference with an Educational Institution — a second-degree misdemeanor, according to the district, which serves some 275,000 students.School district officials said the cyberattacks had “maliciously disrupted teaching and learning” across the district, which is the country’s fourth-largest school district.Investigators were able to locate the student by tracing an IP address associated with the attacks.The suspect allegedly told authorities that they had orchestrated eight malicious attacks since Monday when Miami public schools began its fall online learning program amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.“The student admitted to orchestrating eight Distributed Denial-of-Service cyber attacks, designed to overwhelm District networks, including web-based systems needed for My School Online,” the district said in a statement. “The student used an online application to carry out these attack.”Miami-Dade County Public Schools said it has been the target of more than a dozen of these types of attacks since the 2020-2021 school year began.Miami-Dade County Public Schools chief Edwin Lopez said he believes there are additional suspects involved, but investigators are working to determine if that’s the case.“We believe, based upon our investigation, that other attackers are out there. We will not rest until every one of them is caught and brought to justice,” Lopez said in a statement. “Cyber attacks are serious crimes, which have far-reaching negative impacts. Our message to anyone thinking of attempting a criminal act like this is to think twice. We will find you.”Miami-Dade superintendent of schools Alberto Carvalho thanked investigators for their “tireless efforts” this week and vowed to move beyond the disruption.“I commend our detectives, the FBI, Secret Service, and FDLE for their tireless efforts to pursue those responsible for these attacks,” Carvalho said. “It is disheartening that one of our own students has admitted to intentionally causing this kind of disruption, however, I am confident that the M-DCPS family will continue to show its resilience and commitment to education, in the face of adversity.”The district said it was working with the FBI, the Secret Service and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to ensure a “thorough investigation” is conducted.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

A study published in Psychophysiology found that subjects who took part in cognitive training to improve working memory showed increased anxiety during a subsequent memory task, compared to the group who did not partake in any training.Anxiety disorders have been linked to impaired working memory, leading some researchers to suggest that improving working memory can alleviate anxiety. Findings on the subject, however, have been inconsistent.Study authors Christian Grillon and colleagues propose that improving working memory function might actually increase anxiety. They point to one cognitive theory that describes a “competition for resources” between emotion and cognition. According to this theory, anxiety impairs cognitive functioning by “diverting limited cognitive resources away from a task and toward threatening stimuli.” Improving working memory function might, therefore, free up resources that can be used for threat processing, leading to increased anxiety. Share on Twitter LinkedIn Pinterest Share on Facebook Email Share “Understanding how working memory affects anxiety is the first step toward developing improved cognitive treatments,” the authors say.A study was conducted with a sample of 40 adults who were assigned to one of two conditions. Twenty participants took part in a working memory training session, while 20 control subjects did not. Next, all subjects participated in a series of working memory tasks that asked them to recall a letter presented on a computer screen either one position back (lower difficulty), or 3 positions back (higher difficulty).To induce anxiety, participants were informed they could be administered an unpleasant shock to the wrist at random times throughout the tasks, but only during a “threat period”, and not the “safe period”. To trigger their startle reflex, participants were also randomly sent bursts of white noise through headphones.Electrodes that were placed near the subjects’ eyes measured their startle magnitude. Anxiety-potentiated startle was measured by calculating the difference in startle magnitude during the threat condition and the safe condition, thereby measuring the extent that startling was intensified by anxiety.Results showed that for the control group, as the working memory task increased in difficulty, anxiety-potentiated startle dropped. This suggests that the more the memory task was challenging, the more it monopolized the subjects’ cognitive resources, leaving little resources for threat processing and thereby reducing their anxiety. Interestingly, in the high difficulty working memory task, subjects in the training condition showed greater anxiety-potentiated startle than did subjects in the control group. This suggests that the training session improved these subjects’ working memory, leaving more cognitive resources available to process threat, thus leading to increased anxiety.Grillon and colleagues conclude that boosting cognitive abilities can free up mental resources that can be used for “task-irrelevant processing” such as threat. They say, “In order to better understand the influence of cognitive control in anxiety, it will be important for future studies to clarify how working memory relates to the subjective experience of anxiety and defense survival mechanisms.”The study, “Better cognitive efficiency is associated with increased experimental anxiety”, was authored by Christian Grillon, Tiffany Lago, Sara Stahl, Alexis Beale, Nicholas Balderston, and Monique Ernst.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby (87) celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal during the second period of Game 2 against the New York Rangers in the first round of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs Saturday, April 18, 2015, in New York. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II)NEW YORK (AP) – Sidney Crosby scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins evened their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers with a 4-3 win Saturday night.The Rangers won Game 1 by making Crosby virtually invisible and keeping Evgeni Malkin out of the danger zone. On Saturday, both of them and the Penguins as a whole showed more jump, possessing the puck and keeping New York off-balance. Forcing turnovers in the decisive second period, shutting down the Rangers’ power play and generally controlling the pace, the Penguins got even.Crosby, naturally, was at the center of the turnaround. He broke a 1-1 tie by knocking in a rebound of Patric Hornqvist’s shot in the second period. Then Crosby made a diving deflection past Henrik Lundqvist of a pass from Chris Kunitz on the right wing boards following a Rangers giveaway in their zone.At that point, Crosby had four shots on goal in the series, with two going in.Game 3 is Monday night in Pittsburgh. The Rangers had the league’s best road record this season while also winning the Presidents’ Cup for top overall record.Marc-Andre Fleury finished with 23 saves for the Penguins, while Lundqvist had 18.The resilient Rangers got back in it early in the third period on, of all things, their previously sputtering power play. Derick Brassard knocked in a rebound from short range after strong pressure with Blake Comeau penalized early in the third.Derek Stepan hit the goal post on the first shot of another power play less than three minutes later. And while killing a penalty, Martin St. Louis and Carl Hagelin both couldn’t get to a loose puck behind Fleury in the crease.On that same power play, Kunitz made it 4-2, sweeping in the rebound of Brandon Sutter’s short shot.Rick Nash scored with 5.1 seconds to go for New York.The Rangers opened the scoring in the first period. Stepan was robbed by Fleury from the slot late in the first period, but on New York’s next rush, Ryan McDonagh fed J.T. Miller on left wing, and his perfect pass to nearly the same spot in the slot hit Stepan in stride. He beat Fleury to the far post this time – one of only three Rangers shots in the period.While the Rangers’ power play struggled, Sutter nearly tied it midway in the second with a short-handed wrist shot that clanged off the goal post. Then he did tie it with a rebound off a deflection on a Pittsburgh power play.NOTES: The game was more than seven minutes old before either team managed a shot on goal, Mats Zuccarello’s wrist shot into Fleury’s midsection. Almost two minutes later, Malkin got the Penguins’ first shot on goal. … The teams were tied 1-1 after two games in their 2014 second-round playoff series. Pittsburgh won the next two, then New York took the final three on its way to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Powered by Firework Indian captain Virat Kohli has received an unexpected ally in former Australian skipper Allan Border following his histrionics during the second Test in Perth. Kohli has come under criticism for his sledging and heated exchanges with Australian counterpart Tim Paine, which at one point needed the umpire to intervene. Former Australia captain Allan Border has come to the defencce of Virat Kohli, saying his antics might be over the top but the game needs characters who show passion.Advertisement Virat Kohli and Tim Paine face off in the second test.“There’s not many characters in our game at the moment. The professional era has sort of beaten that out to a certain degree,” Border said.On the fourth day of the Test, as Kohli stood in Paine’s way while completing a run and then getting into onfield verbal due, it needed umpire Chris Gafaney to intervene and get both skippers to quiet down.Advertisement “I haven’t seen anyone sort of carry on so much as a captain when his side takes a wicket. It’s really over the top but it’s good in a way. You can see some passion about what he’s trying to do,” Border said.Border added that perhaps Kohli’s aggression stems from the desire to cement his legacy with an away series victory. “He’s so keen to win away from home and really deserve that number one ranking … that’s your KPIs (key performance indicators) as a captain I suppose,” he said.Advertisement India come into the Australia Test series having lost back-to-back away series this year – against South Africa and England with Australia the final challenge before the IPL and the World Cup.“To drive the team to be number one, which he has achieved, but to win away from home is one of those important things you notice as a captain.”Border also opined that as the leader, Kohli feels the need to manifest the passion and drive. “I think he’s feeling that pinch. If you look at this Indian side he’s probably the only one that has the character to get really animated,” he said.“The rest of the Indian boys are very good cricketers but seem to me a quiet bunch and maybe Kohli feels as skipper he needs to lead from the front and really show some passion and drive. I think it just comes naturally to him,” he added. Advertisement

By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsIt was a Golden performance by a pair of Golden City athletes at the 2011 Cyswogn’ Fun Triathlon Sunday at Lakeside Park.Dallas Cain of Rossland, looking like a white knight in his white spandex suit, breezed over the Cyswogn’Fun course in a time of two hours, three minutes and four seconds to nip Chad Reid of Lethbridge for the men’s overall title.Cain gained some revenge on the Albertan after Reid defeated the Rosslander in 2010.“It was awesome . . . it’s a really good course,” Cain said minutes after crossing the finish line at the main entrance to Lakeside Park.Brad Kohlsmith of Calgary was third approximately 10 minutes behind Cain.Top Nelsonite was Matt Nuttal finishing fifth at 23:19:16. Former Nelsonite Greg Welwood, now living in Burnaby, was sixth at 2:21.16.Jamie Frederick and Daniel Wordsworth, both from the Heritage City, finished seventh and eighth, respectively. Another former Nelsonite now living in Kelowna, Don Debienne, tops in the 50-59 category, was tenth.Meanwhile, Geisheimer had a great day on the Nelson course cruising to the women’s title in a time of 2:16.07.The Golden City triathlete finished more than eight minutes in front of Kelowna’s Kari Bailey. “I’m really happy,” Geisheimer told The Nelson Daily after the race.“This is the third year I’ve done this race and this year they changed the course and actually they changed it in my favour because I’m a swimmer and they made the course 1500 meters so that was good for me.”Jeannette Elmore of Kelowna was third behind Geisheimer at 2:28.30 followed in fourth by Megan Molnar of Golden and Robin Watt-Sutherland of Salmon Arm in fifth at 2:35.37.Top Nelsonite female was Angie Ford in seventh at 2:39.16.Cyswogn’Fun organizers actually made two changes to the 2011 race.The first was extending the swim stage to 1500 meters from previous years.It’s obvious this change played right into Geisheimer’s hand.“I was surprised to be second person out of the water,” Geisheimer explained after running up the Lakeside beach from chilly Kootenay Lake just over a minute behind Reid.“Usually there’s three of four men around here that can swim ahead of me but I’ve been doing a lot of open water swimming this year so I think that helped.”The second change made by organizers extended the ride along the North Shore Highway 3A to Kokanee Park. In previous years racers cycled to Six Mile and back twice to get in the race distance.This change, dropping the distance to 39 kilometers was music to Cain’s ears.“It was really fun,” said the 30-ish triathlete. “It was a way better bike this year . . . just flat out and back. No coming back through the loops so that made it a lot better.”Cain, sixth out of the water, burned up the North Shore road to finish first overall in the cycle.The Ironman veteran continued to set the pace on the run finishing with the best time to capture his third Cyswogn’Fun title in five attempts.“(My wife and I) had a baby this year so I’ve put training on the back shelf and train when I can,” said Cain, itching to get back onto the course at the Subaru Ironman Canada in Penticton later this month.“But I’ve feeling really good. I won Sylvain Lake and finished second at Osoyoos.”“Maybe less training is the answer,” he added.The total distance for Nelson Cyswogn’Fun is 1500 meter swim, 39 kilometer cycle and 10 km run across the Big Orange Bridge along Johnstone Road and back.“I really like the bike because we only had to cross traffic once,” said Geisheimer, cooking with the men most of the race. “And organizers did a fantastic job of stopping vehicles. So I was really happy with my ride considering I’ve been training 90 per cent mountain bike and only 10 per cent road.”After jumping off the bike Geisheimer did not look out of place on the grueling run.“The run is always hard but I’ve done this race before so I kind of know what to expect and that’s definitely helpful,” said Geisheimer, who won the women’s long course race in 2007 and 2010.While Cain is off to the Penticton Ironman, Geisheimer is turning her focus to off-road triathlons. Next up for the Rosslander is an off-road race in two weeks in Canmore, Alta.NOTES: Organizers were quick to respond to a pair of swimmers in trouble during the first stage of the long course Sunday morning. A female swimmer was pulled from the 13 C waters of Kootenay Lake complaining of hypothermia and taken to Kootenay Lake Hospital. . . . Organizers said entries were down, some saying by at least 100, from past years. The reason is economics. . . . Mother Nature cooperated with great weather for the race. It was great news for the organizing team after last year’s less than great weather. The only concern heading into the race was the chilly waters of Kootenay Lake which was colder than normal due to the late [email protected]
