A marijuana surplus in Oregon has driven pot prices to record lows, and some nervous growers are pivoting to another type of cannabis. Pot farmers hope to cash in on cannabidiol oil, a non-psychoactive extract derived from hemp. (May 14)

Divi Little Bay Beach Resort Reopens in St Maarten

By the Caribbean Journal staffIn the biggest step yet for St Maarten’s recovery, the island’s Divi Little Bay Beach Resort has reopened its doors.Divi’s beachfront property, which is the best-known hotel to reopen on the island in the wake of Hurricane Irma. has relaunched with a wave of upgrades and renovations, including refreshed rooms, new eateries and redesigned pools.

“For the past eight months, the Little Bay team has poured their hearts and souls into the rebuilding the resort, and I know they are looking forward to welcoming back our loyal owners, members and guests,” said Marco Galaverna, Divi Resorts President & COO of Divi Resorts.

The new amenities and features include totally refreshed guestrooms, including new lighting, furniture, window treatments, interior paint, shower doors and 49-inch LED TVs, among other changes; new menus at the resort’s Seabreeze restaurant; a new gourmet coffee shop; an updated pool; a new water sports center and the addition of the “Indulgence by the Sea Spa.”

Divi Little Bay has also added a new eatery called The Shack featuring barbecue and jerk food; a new pool called “pureocean,” a new larger deck at Gizmo’s Bar & Grill and a new kids’ space and game room.

“Divi Little Bay and the island of St. Maarten have come a long way since September,” said Divi Little Bay’s new General Manager Anne-Marie Brooks. “We’ve worked tirelessly to get as much of the resort up and running as possible for our reopening, and we think our owners, members and guests will be very pleased with all the updates and new features which will be fully completed by the fall.”

It’s a huge lift for the island whose hotel product has largely been limited to smaller hotels and condominium alternatives in the wake of Irma. although that has included popular places to stay including the Princess Heights and the Simpson Bay Resort.

The reopening comes as most carriers have relaunched their flight services to the island, including Air France, United Airlines, Spirit Airlines and WestJet, among others.

Sergei Skripal Was Retired, but Still in the Spy Game. Is That Why He Was Poisoned?
 

mikenova shared this story .

“Estonia has the best counterintelligence in Europe,” said Toomas Hendrik Ilves, who was Estonia’s president for a decade and left office in 2016. “We’ve caught as many spies as Germany.”

Nothing about Mr. Skripal’s travels appears all that uncommon. John Sipher, who retired from the Central Intelligence Agency in 2014 and once ran covert operations against the Russians, said the United States routinely deployed Russian defectors to lecture the intelligence services of its allies, though their meetings with other agencies would be kept secret to avoid angering Moscow.

“There is a bit of a game where, O.K., the guy spied for us, we got what we wanted, and now that we’re out, we’re not going to rub your nose in it,” he said.

Sharing knowledge and experience is often the only way a former spy can make a living, experts said. Mr. Ilves, the former Estonian president, called it the “spook version of a lecture tour.”

For former double agents, retirement can be dull and anticlimactic. The British government provides a stipend, but in the past defectors have protested that it is too small. In the late 1990s, a former spy named Victor Makarov filed a complaint against the British intelligence services over his miserable living conditions and eventually ended up camping outside Prime Minister Tony Blair’s residence in protest.

Others have resorted to creative and illegal means to augment their pensions. Oleg Gordievsky, a senior K.G.B. officer whose defection in 1985 was a serious blow to the Soviet government, hosted a game show for a time. Mikhail Butkov, another K.G.B. defector, was imprisoned for three years for creating a fake business school and defrauding would-be students out of 1.5 million pounds.

“It’s psychological — they’ve been in the limelight, and they’re not important anymore,” said Stephen Dorril, the author of numerous books about Britain’s intelligence services.

Opinion | Why Comey’s October Surprise Was Pointless and Wrong
 

mikenova shared this story .

In my view, neither assumption holds up. The F.B.I. “had spent hundreds if not thousands of hours over the past year circling the former secretary, reading thousands of her emails and interviewing all those around her,” writes Mr. Comey. According to the investigative material posted on the F.B.I.’s website, those interviews included over 40 current or former State Department employees, most of whom knew something about Mrs. Clinton’s email because they handled or were aware of a variety of operational tech issues over four years.

So, on Oct. 27, the F.B.I. investigators were deeply knowledgeable about Mrs. Clinton’s email and could make highly informed judgments about what was found on Mr. Weiner’s laptop. Mr. Comey should have reasonably recognized that the chance of finding a smoking gun in the first three months when such evidence was wanting for the remaining 45 months — when the Clinton email system experienced such common tech issues as no connectivity, bad firewalls, phishing and power failures — was low at best. Because of those issues, State Department management, diplomatic security and tech staff members knew of Mrs. Clinton’s system and its inherent risks and repeatedly raised these issues with Mrs. Clinton’s immediate staff. Yet the F.B.I. found insufficient evidence to support a criminal case.

The second assumption involving the supposedly long duration of the email review was also flawed. First, by prioritizing a review of the few thousand new BlackBerry emails for smoking guns, a small number of seasoned investigators could have carefully looked at them in hours, not days or weeks.

Second, like other organizations that regularly review enormous amounts of stored electronic data, the F.B.I. possessed the technical means to determine quickly whether the haul of other emails on the Weiner laptop were backup duplicates of ones already in its possession, as the vast majority apparently turned out to be. Off-the-shelf software was available to compare the Weiner laptop emails against the F.B.I.’s existing collection to exclude duplicates from the review.

What was Mr. Comey’s third option on Oct. 27? Wait and see. Monitor the progress of the review closely. Do nothing until there was something to report.

Even a delay of a few days would have afforded the F.B.I. investigative team time to get a very good idea of what most likely was and was not in the new evidence. As it turned out, the team was able to complete its work days before the election, and Mr. Comey informed Congress in his Nov. 2 letter that the F.B.I. investigation was again closed.

If he had waited a few days, Mr. Comey would have made a better-informed decision. The F.B.I. would have done meaningful due diligence. Had that course been followed, perhaps he would not have ever sent the letters.

I expect Mr. Comey to argue that this is all 20/20 hindsight. But I continue to believe that the historical record surrounding his momentous decision requires additional balance and close scrutiny and context to ensure that it is complete and correct.

Paris knife attack: Investigators widen probe into Chechen-born Khamzat Azimov – National
 

mikenova shared this story from [Untitled].

Investigators on Sunday widened a probe into the Chechen-born 20-year-old whose stabbing spree in central Paris, claimed by the Islamic State group, left one person dead and four seriously wounded.

The man, identified as naturalised Frenchman Khamzat Azimov, carried out the attack Saturday night in a lively area of theatres and restaurants near the city’s historic opera house.

The knifeman, whose rampage followed a series of jihadist assaults in France that have killed 246 people since 2015, was shot dead by police after an officer failed to subdue him with a Taser.

READ MORE: Islamic State claims responsibility for Paris knife attack that left 2 dead, including attacker

A source close to the inquiry said Azimov grew up with his family in Strasbourg, eastern France, which has a large community of Chechen refugees.

His parents, now living in Paris, have been taken into custody as well as a friend in Strasbourg described as the “individual closest” to Azimov, according to a source close to the investigation.

Amaq, the IS propaganda agency, released a video on Sunday in which it claimed responsibility for the attack, with footage which it claims shows Azimov pledging allegiance to the jihadist group.

IS has long urged followers to seek “martyrdom” by targeting American or European “infidels” by any available means, and allegiance videos help the group bolster its claims of responsibility.

WATCH: Panic in central Paris as crowd flees from scene of knife attack

Although Azimov had no criminal record, he had been on both of France’s main watchlists for suspected radicals — the so-called “S file” and a more targeted File for the Prevention of Terrorist Radicalisation (FSPRT), which focuses on people judged to be terror threats — since 2016.

One source said he had been questioned last year “because he knew a man who was in contact with a person who had gone to Syria.”

Hundreds of fighters from Chechnya have joined Islamic militant groups in recent years, following two bloody separatist wars against Russian-backed authorities in the 1990s and 2000s.

Azimov became a French citizen in 2010 after his mother was naturalised, government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux told French television.

READ MORE: Paris knife attacker born in Chechnya, known to French police for radicalism

Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said on the Telegram messenging app that Azimov had obtained a Russian passport when he was 14, before obtaining French nationality.

Kadyrov said France bears “full responsibility” for the attack, because although Azimov was born in Chechnya “he grew up and formed his personality, his opinions and convictions within French society.”

‘He looked crazy’

A 29-year-old man was killed in the attack, while a Chinese man aged 34 who lives in Luxembourg and a woman of 54 were seriously wounded and rushed to hospital.

A 26-year-old woman and a man of 31 were slightly wounded. Officials said all the wounded were out of danger.

Witnesses described dramatic scenes as the knifeman struck, walking along stabbing people and yelling “Allahu akbar” (God is greater).

WATCH: Police on scene of reported knife attack in France

“I was taking orders and I saw a young woman panicking and trying to get into the restaurant,” Jonathan, a waiter at a Korean restaurant, told AFP.

“The attacker entered a shopping street, I saw him with a knife in his hand,” he said. “He looked crazy.”

French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted: “France has once again paid the price in blood but will not give an inch to the enemies of freedom.”

‘No zero-risk’

The attack again underscored the difficulty in tracking suspected extremists by police facing thousands of potential risks, either from home-grown radicals or recent arrivals.

About half of the nearly 20,000 people on the FSPRT watchlist are under active surveillance.

“What good does this S file do if we don’t use it to get these ticking time bombs off French soil,” far-right leader Marine Le Pen posted on Twitter.

But spokesman Griveaux defended the government, saying it had foiled 22 terror attacks over the past 15 months.

“Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as zero risk,” he said.

France has suffered a series of major Islamist attacks including the massacre at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, followed 10 months later by the killing spree in Paris that claimed 130 lives. The next summer the Bastille Day truck attack in Nice killed 86.

Most of the attacks have either been claimed by the Islamic State or were carried out in its name.

Thousands of French troops remain on the streets under an anti-terror operation known as Sentinelle, patrolling transport hubs, tourist hotspots and other sensitive sites.

Russian ads during the 2016 US presidential elections divided Americans on race: Report- Technology News, Firstpost
 

mikenova shared this story from Latest News Tech on Firstpost.

Russia-based Internet Research Agency (IRA), charged with meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, focused on dividing the Americans over race via its 3,517 ads on Facebook.

Democrats from the US House Intelligence Committee last week released 3,517 advertisements that were run on Facebook by the IRA during the 2014-2016 period.

USA Today went through each and every ad and found that out of the 3,517 ads published, about 1,950 referred to race and were seen about 25 million times.

“Some dealt with race directly; others dealt with issues fraught with racial and religious baggage such as ads focused on protests over policing, the debate over a wall on the US border with Mexico and relationships with the Muslim community,” said the report on Sunday.

At least 25 percent of the ads focused on issues involving crime and policing, often with a racial connotation.

“Separate ads, launched simultaneously, would stoke suspicion about how police treat black people in one ad, while another encouraged support for pro-police groups,” said the report.

Between September and November 2016, the number of race-related spots rose to 400. An additional 900 were posted after the November election through May 2017.

Several ads mixed race and policing, with many mimicking “Black Lives Matter” activists that melded real news events with accusations of abuse by white officers.

“More than 11.4 million American users were exposed to those advertisements. The data made available today does not include the 80,000 pieces of organic content shared on Facebook by the IRA. We expect to make this content public in the future,” the House Intelligence Committee said in a statement last week.

Exposure of organic content may have reached more than 126 million Americans, it added.

“Russia sought to weaponise social media to drive a wedge between Americans, and in an attempt to sway the 2016 election,” tweeted Adam Schiff, Democrats’ ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee.

Reacting to Schiff, Facebook said that it gave more than 3,000 ads to Congress so they could better understand the extent of Russian interference in the last US Presidential election.

“In the run-up to the 2016 elections, we were focused on the kinds of cybersecurity attacks typically used by nation states, for example, phishing and malware attacks.

“And we were too slow to spot this type of information operations interference. Since then, we have made important changes to prevent bad actors from using misinformation to undermine the democratic process,” Facebook said in a blog post.

On 16 February, Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian individuals and three Russian organisations for engaging in operations to interfere with US political and electoral processes, including the 2016 presidential election.

Throughout the indictment, Mueller lays out important facts about the activities of the IRA, the notorious Russian “troll” farm, and its operatives.

PBS y NPR publican un documental sobre la situación de Puerto Rico
 

mikenova shared this story .

La cadena televisiva PBS y su homólogo radial NPR unieron esfuerzos para producir un documental que retrata la “realidadoscura” que se vive en Puerto Rico tras el paso del huracán María hace casi ocho meses.

El documental- que investiga la crisis económica y humanitaria de la isla y examina cómo la respuesta federal, Wall Street y años de negligencia han dejado a la isla luchando para sobrevivir–  fue publicado por el programa Frontline el 1 de mayo, día en que miles de ciudadanos puertorriqueños se lanzaron a la calle en protesta de las medidas de austeridad implementadas por el gobierno y la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal.

Los reporteros entrevistaron a catedráticos, economistas y funcionarios públicos para que explicaran en detalle el por qué la situación fiscal de la isla ha dilatado el proceso de recuperación tras el devastador fenómeno atmosférico. Varias imágenes de El Nuevo Día fueron utilizadas en la producción. 

Frontline es un programa de periodismo investigativo diseñado por PBS que produce documentales sobre asuntos nacionales e internacionales. Desde su debut en 1983, ha transmitido 35 temporadas y más de 600 documentales.
