Children across South Sudan and Burkina Faso won't have enough to eat this Christmas. But you can make sure there's enough for everyone - and every pound you give will be doubled by the UK Government.
At Christmas, a time of plenty, we come together with family and friends to celebrate, relax and often overindulge. So it feels particularly unjust that so many families will go without food, security and hope.
With the GDPR compliance deadlinejust over six months away, the UK’s small business community remains unsure about a number of related issues.
Small to medium enterprises (SMEs) are struggling to come to grips with what “personal data” really means, their customers’ new and extended rights, and whether the permissions they currently have to contact customers will meet the requirements of GDPR.
The much rumoured and eagerly anticipated 2018 model year machine christened the Z900RS is an up-to-date modern classic blessed with a multitude of references to the Z1, the machine that not only acted as a crucial stepping stone for Kawasaki as a brand but also changed the face of performance motorcycling forever. Tagged a “Retro Sport” thanks to its RS moniker, the new Z900RS has been painstakingly created by Kawasaki’s styling department and factory engineers as an all-new machine. There’s no place for fake in the lifestyle you choose. Kawasaki alone has the heritage to deliver yesterday’s values to today’s riders in a truly authentic Modern Classic bike. The visceral spirit of a 1970s legend – Kawasaki’s original king of cool Z1 – finds expression in the Z900RS, to satisfy the very essence of the rider you are now.
Builders merchant Jewson has confirmed in writing to customers that their personal data could have been exposed in a cyber break-in that occurred late this summer.
In a letter sent to customers – seen by The Register - Jewson stated: "As a Jewson Direct customers, we regrettably are writing to inform you that our website (www.jewsondirect.co.uk) has suffered a security breach and, as a result, your personal data including your credit/ debit card details may have been compromised."
The digital burglary is "likely" to have taken place on 23 August but was only discovered on 3 November. The website was temporarily shuttered on learning of the breach and remains closed. The ICO was then informed of the hack on 10 November. The hackers were seemingly left undetected for weeks, plenty of scope to do all sorts of mischief.
“We are commissioning a detailed and thorough forensic investigation into the breach. The investigations of the breach are ongoing,” the missive added.
The term exploding whale primarily refers to an event at Florence, Oregon in November 1970, when a dead sperm whale (reported to be a gray whale) was blown up by the Oregon Highway Division in an attempt to dispose of its rotting carcass.
The engineer in charge of the operation told an interviewer that he wasn't sure how much dynamite would be needed, explaining that he was chosen to remove the whale because his supervisor had gone hunting. A charge of half a ton of dynamite was selected. A military veteran with explosives training who happened to be in the area warned that the planned twenty cases of dynamite was far too much – 20 sticks would have sufficed – but his advice went unheeded. The explosion threw whale flesh over 800 feet (240 m) away.
Honda has revealed its new Gold Wing; shaving 42kg off the previous model, but now making 125bhp, it’s lighter, more powerful, has a seven-speed DCT (dual clutch transmission) gearbox - with reverse - and a unique suspension setup.

Many people may already know the dos and don’ts of financial fraud - that no-one should ever ask them for their PIN or full password, or ever make them feel pressured into moving money to a "safe account". The trouble is, in the heat of the moment, it’s easy to forget this.
1) Never disclose security details, such as your PIN or full banking password
2) Don’t assume an email, text or phone call is authentic
3) Don’t be rushed – a genuine organisation won’t mind waiting
4) Listen to your instincts – you know if something doesn’t feel right
5) Stay in control – don’t panic and make a decision you’ll regret

Users have spotted an extremely convincing spoofed copy of the popular WhatsApp messenger on Google Play. The fake was downloaded by more than 1 million users, who instead of a messaging tool wound up with a bundle of ads.
According to Hacker News, the fake WhatsApp was nearly indistinguishable from the real thing thanks to an invisible space placed at the end of the developer’s name.
One of the security hounds discussing the case on Reddit pointed out that this was not an isolated incident, even for WhatsApp. A search for “WhatsApp” on Google Play currently shows no fewer than seven spoof apps using slight variations on the developer name “WhatsApp Inc.”, including versions with extra spaces, asterisks, or commas. All of them have four-star review averages, presumably thanks to industrial-scale subversion of Play’s review system.

It was billed as a spoof, but many of Ghostwatch's 11 million viewers were taken in by the BBC's fake investigation, which in one tragic case led to a teenager taking his own life. On its 25th anniversary, his parents and the creator of the show talk about its impact.
It's Halloween night in 1992, and families across the UK are excitedly huddled around the television. Saturday night TV is at its peak - Gladiators has just premiered on ITV, Casualty is enjoying its seventh series and Noel's House Party is pulling in 15 million viewers a week.
But tonight's big draw is the BBC's heavily-promoted Ghostwatch, a supposedly "live" investigation into paranormal activity being recorded at a family home in Northolt, north-west London.
The programme was the brainchild of horror writer Stephen Volk, who had originally conceived it as a spooky six-part drama, but who was instead asked by producer Ruth Baumgarten to create a 90-minute ghost story for the broadcaster's Screen One series.
I watched this "live" on the night, and although there were some bits that weren't quite right (& therefore smelled a bit of a rat), the show was brilliant & very scary! Since then I have rewatched the show many times & still love it. Highly recommended!
But experts say they believe the number is much higher, claiming the current MOT test, which requires only a visual inspection, is not fit for purpose.
The DVSA says it plans to introduce changes to improve the test next year.
All new diesel cars produced after 2009 have diesel particulate filters designed to reduce pollution levels, but they can sometimes get clogged up and break down, costing thousands of pounds to replace.
Because of the cost involved, some motorists are opting instead to have them removed.
It is illegal for drivers to use a car with the DPF removed, but it is not illegal for garages to take them out.
