Data breach hit 60 Kimpton Hotels locations

first_imgKimpton Hotels admitted on Wednesday that a data breach affected 60 of its 62 locations this year, after first announcing it would investigate the apparent breach in July.KrebsOnSecurity, which was the first to notify Kimpton of the breach, had originally estimated more than 20 locations were affected.The breach affected cards used at the 60 hotels and restaurants between Feb. 16 and July 7. It is not yet clear how many cards were affected.Kimpton joins a growing list of recently breached hotels, including Trump Hotels, Hilton, Mandarin Oriental, White Lodging, Starwood Hotels and Hyatt. Most of the incidents involved point-of-sale malware.NAFCU continues to push for a strong national data security standard for retailers through the “Data Security Act” (H.R. 2205/S. 961), which would hold retailers to the same standards credit unions already follow under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and institute consumer notification requirements. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Joe Aribo: Putting His Money Where His Heart Is

first_imgWhen he chose to don the colours of his fatherland- Nigeria – as against the land of his birth – Britain – he seems to know what he stands to prove. In his first game against Ukraine in an international friendly in September, Joe Aribo put up a Man-of-the-Match performance to launch his international career. And if that was not convincing enough, his show in the high profile encounter against five-times world champions, Brazil, left no one in doubt about the makeup of the Glasgow Rangers midfielderJoe Aribo has proved to be a brilliant signing with Steven Gerrard’s Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers, after the Gers paid a paltry sum of £300,000 to Charlton Athletic to sign the 32-year-old and he has carried his scintillating club form into the international sphere for Nigeria, scoring on his debut against Ukraine while also grabbing another cracking goal against the Sëleçao last Sunday.The Rangers midfielder was a major doubt before the encounter with Brazil after he suffered a head injury in a League Cup win over Livingston, culminating Gerrard to confirm Aribo will miss few games for Rangers. With reports saying the youngster would require about 20 stitches after a rough challenge by Livingston’s Rickie Lamie. “I will be very surprised if we see Aribo play before the international break,” the Rangers boss said. “It is his first time out of London and he has settled very well. This will be a setback but knowing him he will bounce back, he didn’t even want to come off yesterday which shows his mentality,” Gerrard had said.He however recovered on time and brushed the injury aside to star for Nigeria against Brazil.Indeed former Nigerian international, Victor Ikpeba was left blown away by Rangers star after he danced through the Brazil defence to score a wonderful individual goal during a friendly clash this week.The defensive duo of Thiago Silva and Marquinhos watched helplessly as Aribo waltzed through their tackles and power his way before calmly rolling the ball past Ederson Moraesin a moment of sheer class.“Credit to Aribo for the sublime goal he scored against the five-time world champions. He’s such a wonderful player and I am delighted to see him play quality football for Nigeria. Joe Aribo is an exceptional player and he has shown the coach Gernot Rohr that he is ready to claim a regular shirt,” said Ikpeba.Super Eagles Team Manager, Gernot Rohr indeed revealed that the fitness and speed of the player touted to be installed as Mikel Obi’s replacement are his best attributes he brings for the young squad at his disposal.“We have a very young team, younger than what we had at AFCON. Joe Aribo is one of the players bringing his fitness and speed into the team. His left foot is technically interesting for us in the midfield,” Rohr said.Aribo announced himself to the world stage by scoring the first goal in the 4th minute with a simple tap-in via an Alex Iwobi’s cut back and went on to deliver a man of the match performance that left a number of fans drooling as Nigeria ironed out a 2-2 draw with hosts Ukraine at the Dnipro Arena last month.Though fans had been warned before the game to expect some fireworks from the Glasgow Rangers midfielder not many reckon they would be forced, on watching Aribo, to reminisce about the good old Austin Okocha days.Aribo earned his first call-up in September after his impressive start to 2019-20 at Ibrox under Gerrard, and it’s safe to say his summer move from Charlton Athletic is starting to pay dividends.Though Aribo wasn’t expected to walk into the Super Eagles’ starting 11, though, with Leicester City’s Wilfried Ndidi and Stoke City’s Peter Etebo the favoured and long-term defensive midfield pairing the Rangers man has surely given Rohr a selection headache following a wonderful debut and his scintillating performance against Brazil.Aribo decided to wear the colours of Nigeria even though he was eligible to play for his country of birth, England.‘’I am really happy to have got this call-up to Nigeria and I just want to make the most of it and play as long as possible and just do what I can for the team and make sure that we continue being the best that we can be,’’ Aribo has said before the game against Ukraine.Aribo described himself as a midfielder with offensive and defensive qualities.‘’I am a central midfielder and I like to get in and around the box. I can defend and I can attack,’’ he said.Speaking before the Ukraine encounter, he said he was ready to seize his chance and put on a show for Nigerian fans and prove his worth to coach Rohr and that was exactly what he did.English-born Aribo joined Rangers from Charlton Athletic in England, having also previously turned out for Staines Town in non-league football.He already has four goals in 12 games for Rangers this year after making an excellent start to the new campaign that has seen him rewarded with a call-up.Aribo has also proved his manager at Chalton Athletic, Lee Bowyer wrong having believed the midfielder made a wrong decision to leave English football for a less competitive Scottish league, but the coach is now backing him to become world-class in nearest future.“Lee Bowyer insisted he made the wrong move for his career by joining Rangers but Aribo is quickly proving the Charlton boss wrong.“He’s scored big goals in the Europa League and earned his first two caps for Nigeria, grabbing two goals. The latest over the weekend was against Brazil but his performances for Rangers have been equally impressive.“Minus a huge blip against Celtic when he played wide left, his unorthodox style of play has been successful. Able to hold onto possession in the tightest of spaces and with an eye for goal as well he has fast become a fans’ favourite.“He’s still young and developing his game but he’s clearly going to be a big player for Rangers,” reads a report in dailyrecord.co.uk.He also joined the likes of Teslim Balogun, Brian Idowu, Julius Aghahowa, Finidi George, Victor Agali and Obafemi Martins as Nigerians to have scored on their international debut after the Rangers midfielder scored the Super Eagles’ first goal in friendly with Ukraine.Having not only scored but had been enterprising in the two games he had played for Nigeria, Aribo has surely warmed himself into the hearts of Nigeria soccer fans and indeed Super Eagles German-born Manager.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Kyler Murray confirms at his pro day that he’s all in on football

first_imgMurray said he still loves baseball but knows “I can’t play both. So, is it out of my system? I don’t know. I guess. It’s a weird question.”The Oakland A’s own his rights for seven years, and Johnson said baseball is a sport Murray could always return to if the football dream doesn’t work out.”Oh, for sure,” Johnson said. “He could jump back in and do good at it. I think he’d pick up right where he left off. I think he’s that kind of dynamic athlete.” NORMAN, Okla. — Just hours before the biggest job interview of his life, Kyler Murray attended a baseball game.It was cold and windy at Oklahoma’s L. Dale Mitchell Park, and the Sooners rolled to an easy 9-1 midweek victory. One NFL coordinator in attendance and one scout expressed mild disappointment in not having an official 40 time, but both also said such a thing mattered little.Murray said he didn’t run because he was focused on showing scouts his arm and didn’t want to risk an injury that could limit his throwing session.Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said Murray’s 40 time, whether fast or slow, would have been inconsequential.MORE: Murray fuels conspiracy theories by not getting measured “He’s athletically so far beyond anything in this game, and anything in that league at that position, that there’s just really, honestly, not that much point to it,” Riley said. “When you’ve got to get ready to throw … then you certainly don’t want to do anything that hinders that. You can risk injury. There’s a lot of things that can happen when you do all that different testing.”His quickness and speed — I think the tape speaks for itself. There really wasn’t anything to gain for him doing that today.”Murray hired former NFL quarterback and coach Jim Zorn to train him ahead of the draft. After Murray’s workout, Zorn explained Murray’s predraft strategy, his skill set and what’s ahead for his star pupil.”All 32 teams were here looking at him,” said Zorn, who helped Murray execute Wednesday’s throwing routine. “None of them would go away from this workout being disappointed at all that he wouldn’t run a 40. I think they have to be pretty excited. What I told him afterwards is he ought to feel really good about what he just did. He was very convincing.”Zorn said as a coach, he wouldn’t have even asked Murray why he didn’t run.”Watching him throw? Pretty impressive,” Zorn said.After the NFL Combine, Murray took some criticism in a report last week from NFL Network analyst and former GM Charley Casserly about his work ethic and study habits. But those critiques now seem largely unfounded. As football has moved to the forefront of his life, Murray has embraced the amount of learning that needs to happen.MORE: Murray’s agent bashes Casserly’s comments”I saw Charley’s comments,” Zorn said, “but that was with Charley not being around Kyler. Most of these young guys need to understand more about gap control, defensive techniques, the front seven; how do we identify who these guys are and what they are? And so those are the things that we’ve been working on. What he did, and I commend Kyler for this, is he went back to his coach (Riley) and they studied. That’s what was going to happen at the combine. He was going to get asked about his offense and what they did. I think he did very, very well.”Likewise, Zorn has no reservations about Murray’s taciturn personality.”When you’re around him for very long, you see that, ‘Oh, he really does care. He really is serious about this game,’ ” Zorn said. “What you talk about, he understands. … When you’re with him, you get it. If you’re not around it, yeah, he can be a little quiet or aloof or whatever.”Johnson isn’t worried about Murray’s work ethic. He recalls early in his first year in Norman, 2016, when he was still the Sooners’ pitching coach. His family was still back in Texas, so Johnson got an apartment close to the baseball field. Late one night, about 1:30 in the morning, the phone rang. Murray had been in the batting cage and got locked in the stadium.”He works at it,” Johnson said. “He wants to be great. He works to be great.””I felt amazing leaving the combine,” Murray said. “I thought every meeting I had went well. Didn’t have any, at least to my face, nobody was negative. I had fun with it. It was a great experience.”Casserly also said he was told by NFL sources at the combine that Murray’s leadership was subpar. How would Murray describe his leadership skills?”I don’t know,” Murray said. “Ask my teammates.”MORE: Riley says Murray all about winning”Anything about that guy is not questionable,” said teammate and first-round offensive line prospect Cody Ford. “His heart, his mentality, his mindset going into games. Kyler’s a different breed. He’s a great leader. He’s a great teammate. … For somebody to sit back and say he’s not a leader, it’s not right. They’re wrong in so many ways.”Murray acknowledges that it has been just a short time since he announced on Twitter that he would focus on the NFL and give up the baseball dream. To that end, his workload going into the combine and pro day has been laser-focused.”Trying to be smooth as possible on dropbacks,” he said. “Trying to be on time and accurate.”Zorn said Murray’s pro day was “more than decent.”You could see his ball speed. A lot of guys try to throw hard. He doesn’t look like he’s trying to throw hard and the ball can come out with great speed because he fires his hip really well. And the accuracy is there with the ball speed. I think that showed up to everybody today, the kind of authority he throws with.”Zorn said Murray is still learning — a lot. He recently spent time with Baker Mayfield in California talking about NFL protection schemes and how advanced they are compared to the college level. Zorn said Mayfield has offered plenty of knowledge about just the pace of learning in the NFL.”Baker was not shocked,” Zorn said, “but was taken aback a little bit by how much there really is to learn. Because you’re really learning the intricacies of a defense. You’re learning the details of coverage.”Zorn added, “we haven’t worked enough. He’s learning how to drop from underneath the center. He did a great job of it today, but I keep telling him, ‘Stretch your drop, stretch your drop.’ That’s probably the biggest thing he’s learning, how to be comfortable in a dropback from underneath the center and still throw accurately. You saw that today. He did a lot from underneath the center.”As far as the work that we’ve done, I’d love to have more work in the classroom as well. But he’s on his way.”center_img But there sat Murray, the future NFL first-round draft pick, maybe the No. 1 overall selection, watching his old team knock it around the yard.”Man,” Murray told OU coach Skip Johnson, “I miss this place.”MOCK DRAFT: Murray goes to No. 1 Cards, shaking up Round 1Early the next morning, Murray woke up and blew away NFL scouts, coaches and GMs at his pro day. Murray stepped on the scale (205 pounds) but declined to have his height measured, and declined to run, lift, jump or do agility drills. But he did stage an impressive throwing session, some 66 passes of all varieties — deep, short, intermediate, shotgun, simulated under center — and afterward, the 75 personnel representing all 32 NFL teams were happy with what they saw.So, yes, Murray does still miss baseball. But he left no doubts Wednesday with his quick release and velocity and accuracy that he is all in on football.”Just got going,” Murray said. “It was fun to finally do something.”last_img read more

Public Input Sought For Woodland District Planning Update

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by City of LaceyLACEY, WA, January 22, 2013: The public is invited to participate in the second of a series of planning sessions to enhance Lacey’s Woodland District, a mixed-use sub-area of the city’s central business district, on Wednesday, January 30, 2013, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Lacey City Hall Council Chambers, 420 College Street SE.In partnership with the Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC), Lacey is developing a strategic plan for the district—bordered by Interstate 5, College Street, Lacey Boulevard, and the Chehalis Western Trail—to create a vibrant urban core featuring a mix of residential, office, business, recreation, and service uses. Recent consolidation of state agencies in response to the economic downturn has resulted in nearly 240,000 square-feet of vacant office space in the district. While this has had a negative impact, it also offers an opportunity to diversify the district’s employment base.The workshop will be an interactive presentation which will utilize hand-held instant polling equipment to formulate concepts, establish preferences, and refine design elements. The data gathered will inform the Woodland District Steering Committee and policy-makers on current strategic planning efforts, including concepts that can be successfully implemented immediately as well as broader actions that can be incorporated into land use planning element updates to Lacey’s overall comprehensive plan.To learn more, visit www.ci.lacey.wa.us/get-involved, or contact Ryan Andrews, Associate Planner, at randrews@ci.lacey.wa.us or (360) 491-5642.last_img read more

Leafs, Hawks, Rebels all pull out wins in Saturday night KIJHL action

first_imgIf the Leafs want any chance of catching the front-runners in the KIJHL’s Murdoch Division Nelson must beat the lesser teams in the league.And the last time anyone looked, the Spokane Braves is one of those lesser teams in the standings.The Leafs rode the three-goal performance of Nik Newman to a 4-2 doubling of the Braves Saturday at the NDCC Arena.The win completed the weekend sweep of the home-and-home series and helped Nelson keep pace with the two Murdoch leaders, Beaver Valley and Castlegar.The Hawks hammered the Columbia Valley Rockies in Invermere while Castlegar bounced Summerland Steam, both games ended in identical 9-3 scores.Saturday was a far cry from the offensive explosion Friday in Spokane that saw the teams combined for 14 goals.After a scoreless first period the teams exchanged goals with Newman opening the scoring and Uriah Machuga replying for Spokane.However, seconds into the third Newman scored his second of the game on the power play from defenceman J.J. Beitel.Defenceman Jonathan Petrash, with his second goal of the weekend on the power play gave Nelson a 3-1 advantage.Machuga cut the lead to a single goal scoring his second of the game on the power play.But Newman, named the game’s first star, combined with Brett Norman during the latter stages of the contest to seal the win for Nelson.The Leafs out shot the Braves 26-24 during the game making goalie Andrew Walton a winner for the second time in as many days.Nelson, improving to 17-9-0-2, remains two points behind Castlegar in Murdoch standings and six away from division leading Beaver Valley.Nelson, 4-1 in its last five games, travels to Grand Forks Thursday to meet the Bruins.The next home game is Friday, December 9 when Nelson hosts the Castlegar Rebels.Spear, Ninimiken, Martin lead Hawks past RockiesMason Spear scored twice and Justin Niminiken and rookie Craig Martin each added four points to lead the Hawks to the 9-3 rout of Columbia Valley.Ryan Edwards, Martin, Chris Derochie, Christian Johnson, Jacob Boycuk and Max Flanagan also scored for the Hawks.Spear, Edwards and Johnson finished the game each with three points.Mike Vlanich had an easy time in net, facing just 14 shots to register the win.The three-point night by Edwards increased his KIJHL scoring lead to four points over teammates Derochie and Martin.Beaver Valley remains one of the hottest teams in the KIJHL, going 8-1-0-1 in its last 10 games.The Hawks face a tough challenge Friday when Beaver Valley travels to Fernie to face the Eddie Mountain leading Ghostriders.The teams return to Fruitvale Saturday for the back half of the home-and-home series.Morriseau works some magic against SteamScott Morriseau is quickly rounding into form for the Castlegar Rebels.The gifted sniper had a six-point night to lead the Rebels to the romp past the Steam.Despite only playing 13 games this season, the diminutive forward already has 19 points. Saturday Morriseau finished the game with three goals.Stuart Walton chipped in with five points — a goal and four helpers — while Erik Alden, Arthur Andrews and Tyler Jones each had three points.Jones also had two goals with singles going to Walton, Anthony Delong and Alden.Castlegar, 18-7-0-2, and 8-2 in its last 10 games, remains four points behind Beaver Valley in Murdoch standings.Conner Beachamp stopped 20 shots to record the win in goal.
