AL attacking opponent in name
jamuna political news: Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Thursday said that the Awami League (AL) is attacking its political opponent, in the name of containing home-grown extremism.
‘I am very scared and concerned that in which direction the government is taking us. What is your (government) actual intent?’ Mirza Fakhrul said.
Addressing a meeting at its office at Nayapaltan organised by Dhaka city BNP to celebrate Independence and National Day on March 26, Fakhrul alleged that no detained suspected extremists were produced before courts rather are being killed in ‘cross-fire’.
‘If the government was claiming to eradicate extremism from the country, then why the menace is raising and repeating itself?’ he asked.
To eliminate extremism properly they need to work with all political parties, he added.
On Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s upcoming India-visit, he said people do not know anything about agreements to be signed during her visit to New Delhi.
Fakhrul iterated that people would not accept any deals that would go against the country’s independence, sovereignty and national interests.

CIA to hack targeted iPhones
jumuna technology desk: The Wikileaks released a treasure trove of documents detailing the arsenal of software tools the CIA uses to hack into targeted iPhones and Macs on yesterday morning. While most of the reported exploits require physical access to a particular device, the document dump naturally generated no shortage of fear-inducing headlines about the state of security of various Apple products.
In an effort to address and alleviate such concerns, Apple late last night issued the statement to Tech Crunchassuring both Mac and iPhone users that all of the CIA exploits recently brought to light by Wikileaks are old and outdated. In fact, Apple notes that a handful of the newly disclosed exploits were patched nearly seven years ago.
We have preliminarily assessed the Wikileaks disclosures from this morning. Based on our initial analysis, the alleged iPhone vulnerability affected iPhone 3G only and was fixed in 2009 when iPhone 3GS was released. Additionally, our preliminary assessment shows the alleged Mac vulnerabilities were previously fixed in all Macs launched after 2013.
We have not negotiated with Wikileaks for any information. We have given them instructions to submit any information they wish through our normal process under our standard terms. Thus far, we have not received any information from them that isn’t in the public domain. We are tireless defenders of our users’ security and privacy, but we do not condone theft or coordinate with those that threaten to harm our users.
The tidbit about not negotiating with Wikileaks is worth highlighting as it comes hot on the heels of a report claiming that Wikileaks was withholding access to the technical details of the CIA’s hacking tools unless tech companies like Apple and Google agreed to “sign off on a series of conditions.”
In any event, you can bet good money that the CIA’s collection of iPhone and Mac hacking tools is far more sophisticated today than it was a few years back. And while Apple has undoubtedly improved iOS security by leaps and bounds over the last few years, the fact remains that no piece of software is ever 100% bulletproof.
Just this past summer, for example, security researchers discovered an extremely advanced piece of iOS spyware capable of remotely spying on a targeted device’s phone calls, texts, emails, location and more. Dubbed Pegasus and developed by an Israeli security company called the NSO Group, the software prompted Apple to quickly roll out a software patch for the handful of zero-day exploits Pegasus relied upon.
How to pick the perfect
jamuna lifestyle desk: Any doctor will tell you that a good night's sleep is extremely important. And one of the basic requirements of sound sleep is the elusive 'perfect' mattress.
But how do you distinguish between all the different varieties available? Anand Nichani, an expert of mattress technology gives us some pointers.
That is a misconception most people have. Foam mattresses are known for its extraordinary capacity for adapting to the pressure exercised by the body and to the body heat. The heat makes materials malleable and all polyurethanes are subjected to this. Memo foam mattress responds mainly to the pressure of the body rather than to the heat, as we know that heat interacts much slower than the weight; so we can easily presume that it would take longer to adapt and even longer to recuperate to its original shape.
And this feature makes you 'wake up feeling fresh'. In the case of a coir mattress which is basically hard; it does not take the body shape and this creates pressure points, hindering a good night's sleep. Coir also tends to get compressed when body rests on it. Over a period of time, it does not regain back its original shape leading to sagging of the mattress.
