Photo: Christ Church Cathedral via Anglican Journal[Anglican Journal] While concerns grow about the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated lockdowns on families and children, some Canadian Anglicans have been reaching out in new ways to help them.Sheilagh McGlynn, the Anglican Church of Canada’s animator for youth ministries (and a practicing psychotherapist) says she worries about the effect that physical distancing measures now in place will have on the development of young people.“I think it would be easy to say, ‘Oh, young people are going to be really fine through all of this’ because they know how to adapt technology-wise, but I think that on an emotional level, young people are really feeling the brunt,” she says.Read the full article here.

Defense Ministry bans staff from using Zoom over security concerns

first_imgThe Defense Ministry recently issued a circular forbidding the usage of teleconference platform Zoom among its staff due to security concerns.The circular, which was signed by Defense Ministry secretary-general Vice Adm. Agus Setiadji, stated that all working unit and subunit heads were required to disburse the information to their subordinates. “We urge all working unit and subunit heads to refrain from using Zoom for teleconferences,” the circular stated.  Zoom has become a popular teleconferencing platform, as many companies implement work-from-home policies during the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia. Nevertheless, the application has security holes, leading companies and institutions alike to look for alternatives.Read also: Work from home: Security risks lurk in virtual meetingsA report from The Washington Post on April 3 explained that Zoom users face privacy risks, with up to 15,000 personal Zoom videos left viewable on the internet. According to The Washington Post, videos recorded on Zoom could be stored on other platforms without the participants’ consent.  Such security concerns have led other countries, such as India, to ban Zoom usage for remote government meetings. The Defense Ministry also learned that Zoom had reported traffic duplication to servers in other countries, opening up the possibility for conversations via the platform to be monitored by a third party. “Defense Ministry employees are required to coordinate with the ministry’s Data and Information Center [Pusdatin] before conducting a teleconference session,” Agus stated in the circular. The ministry has requested Pusdatin head Dominggus Pakel to find a safe alternative for teleconferencing that could be used Defense Ministry staff.Topics :last_img read more

Syracuse wins Candlewood Suites Challenge

first_imgSyracuse had a perfect weekend.The Orange had a huge bounce back performance this weekend after last tournament’s disastrous performances, winning all three matches in straight sets.Syracuse walked away this weekend with its first tournament victory this season, beating Chicago State in straight sets on Saturday afternoon.“Finally they started showing what we are practicing, the way we can play,” head coach Leonid Yelin said. “What we build now, hopefully it will help us next weekend.”Syracuse began the Candlewood Suites Challenge on Friday afternoon with a 25-5 first-set victory over Saint Peter’s, and followed that up with set wins of 25-12 and 25-21.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSophomore hitter Silvi Uattara, who was benched last weekend due to poor play, dominated the game, racking up a team-high 14 kills and five aces.Freshman setter Erica Handley also provided a spark, dishing out 28 assists.Syracuse played its second game of the tournament on Friday night, and the result was the same. SU had no trouble defeating Delaware State in straight sets.The Orange won the first set 25-12 and cruised to a straight-sets victory, winning the final two 25-13 and 25-12. Uattara picked up 11 more kills to once again lead the team in points.Handley again proved her value to the team, racking up a career-high five kills and providing 28 more assists — seven more than the entire Delaware State team combined.“We have to find a way how to play against teams we absolutely have to beat,” Yelin said. “I knew we were going to beat them, I didn’t know we were going to beat them in that kind of manner.”But the night was about more than just Uattara and Handley’s dominance. Junior Lindsay McCabe cracked the Top 10 in Syracuse’s all-time total blocks list.The next day, she cracked the Top 10 in block assists in program history.“It’s very exciting to have your name in the record books,” McCabe said. “And hopefully it will be something that I can look back on in a few years.”With McCabe’s record-setting day, Syracuse cruised to its third and final straight-set sweep, winning the first two sets 25-15 and 25-9. The third set proved to be more of a daunting task as Chicago State put up a fight. After falling down 23-17, the Cougars pulled to within three, but it wasn’t enough. Handley set up sophomore Gosia Wlaszczuk for the kill to end the set 25-21.In addition to McCabe’s effort, junior Nicolette Serratore also stepped up, leading the team with 12 kills and nine digs. Handley also turned in another solid performance, putting up a tournament-high 36 assists.This tournament had a different vibe than the previous one, as the Orange came out with a lot more energy than last weekend. After a lackluster 1-5 start, SU took a step in the right direction.“We just worked on the things we knew we needed to work on from last tournament,” Handley said. “And did just a lot more game-situation stuff and building off that, and getting our confidence up.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 16, 2013 at 4:00 am Contact Eric: [email protected]last_img read more
