Convicted Sex Offender Accused of Kidnapping Two Pasadena Women to be Arraigned Friday

first_img Community News A 38-year-old Compton man who had been convicted in 2008 for assault to commit mayhem will be arranged Friday, May 20, at the Pasadena Courthouse for a new charge of kidnapping for purposes of sexual assault filed by two 18-year-old women earlier this month.Anthony Seth McDaniel was arrested by the United States Marshal’s Pacific Southwest Fugitive Task Force on May 4, as he was leaving work in Carson. The two women had complained he had offered them a ride in his pick-up truck on April 30 but later demanded sexual acts and threatened to kill one of the victims with a handgun.Pasadena police said McDaniel saw the two women waiting at a bus stop in Pasadena at about 10 p.m. on April 30 and offered them a ride. The women accepted the offer but later on noticed the suspect was not driving them to the direction they requested.One of the women saw a chance to open the truck’s door and jump out of the vehicle. She was later transported to a hospital due to a broken ankle.The other victim related to police she was threatened with a handgun while still inside the suspect’s vehicle. Near the 110 freeway at Olympic Blvd., she yanked at the steering wheel, causing the truck to crash into another vehicle. The suspect opened the front passenger door and pushed to victim out of the truck, according to police. She was later contacted by a CHP officer who learned about the kidnapping and drove the victim to the Pasadena Police Department.Detectives later found out about McDaniel’s previous conviction and learned he was outfitted with a GPS monitoring device.After his arrest on May 4, McDaniel was booked at the Los Angeles County Jail with a $2 million bail. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes More Cool Stuff Make a comment Subscribe Your email address will not be published.

I Ramped Up My Internet Security, and You Should Too

first_imgBy Julia Angwin, ProPublicaSome people make dieting resolutions in the New Year. I make security and privacy resolutions, because those are the things that keep me up at night. After all, as a journalist, it’s important for me to give my sources assurances that I will keep their communications confidential. And in today’s world, that is an ever-more-difficult task.Everyone — journalists or not — faces an increasing array of attacks on our security and privacy. Even if you’re not the U.S.’s intelligence chief, whose email was recently hacked, it’s smart to up your game. So this year, I thought I’d share my resolutions.1. Software updatesIt’s not sexy, but at the top of my list is updating my software to the latest versions. Nothing else matters – not fancy encryption or strong passwords – if you’re using software that contains gaping holes that any criminal or spy can penetrate.And I hate to break it to you, but all your software is as holey as Swiss cheese. The software updates you receive are just patches for the holes that have been discovered so far. More holes will be discovered later. What’s more, updates are basically red alerts to hackers, pointing them to the holes.So I’ve just updated my phone and computer operating systems, as well as all my Web browsers, software and phone apps.2. Ditching old, buggy softwareNext up is ditching old, unused or poorly maintained software. Using software is a commitment. If you don’t update it, you are wearing a “hack me” sign on your forehead. So if there are programs or apps that you don’t use, delete them.This year, I decided to ditch my instant messaging client Adium. I was using it to enable encrypted chats. But like many cash-strapped open source projects, it is rarely updated and has been linked to many security vulnerabilities.Instead, I switched to Tor Messenger, an encrypted messaging program that is run by the Tor Project, a nonprofit that makes the anonymous Web browser that I already use. By the sad standards of underfunded open source security tools, Tor is relatively well-financed and so I have some hope that its tools will continue to be updated.Tor Messenger links up with my existing Gmail and Jabber chat accounts, and is encrypted and anonymous by default.For even more privacy, I also signed up for Ricochet, an encrypted chat program that runs on the so-called Dark Web. One downside: You can only chat with other Ricochet users. So far, I have all of two buddies on it. [INSERT SAD EMOJI HERE!]3. Upgrading my passwordsPasswords are, of course, the definition of unsexy. But you gotta have ‘em, and they should be long and unique (no re-using between websites). I use a password manager, 1Password, to generate most of my passwords.But for my most important accounts, such as email and my bank, I use a method called Diceware to generate passwords that are about 30 characters long and made up of dictionary words that I can remember. (Thank you Chase for allowing 30-character long passwords — not all banks do, strangely.)If your passwords are long and unique, you don’t need to change them every few months, as most companies incorrectly force employees to do. But I’d been using the same Diceware passwords for a few years now — and I figured it was time to create new ones.4. Upgrading my encryption keyAfter getting all the basics out of the way, I finally got to the fun stuff: Secret coded messages! Who doesn’t love encryption? Modern crypto scrambles your communications so well that FBI Director James Comey has spent the past year complaining that it’s too hard to crack.Most of my encrypted communications take place on Signal, an easy to use phone app. But for email, I use Gnu Privacy Guard, a much older and more complex program.I’ve long been haunted by the fact that when I set up GPG four years ago, I didn’t create my encryption key in the most secure way. This year, I decided to finally fix it. To set up my keys correctly, I had to find a computer that never touches the Internet and follow the instructions in this helpful guide: “Creating the Perfect GPG Key Pair.”My new key seemed all pristine and shiny. And my old key – which I am now revoking – was like an old sweater that I was tossing. It had served me well, but it was time to go.In fact, closet cleaning is probably the best analogy for my New Year’s security project. At the end, I felt cleaner and lighter — the same way I do when I toss out old clothes. And perhaps that feeling was its greatest benefit. I may not be able to foil all the hackers and spies across theInternet. But I can sleep better at night knowing I have tried my best.ProPublica is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative newsroom.

EMI sheds online copy protection

first_imgSome analysts suggest that lifting the software restrictions could boost sales of online music, which currently account for around 10 percent of global music sales. Jobs said he planned to offer around half of all music in the iTunes store under the premium package by the end of the year, but declined to say whether the company was in discussions with other leading record companies.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LONDON – Breaking from the rest of the recording industry, EMI Group said Monday it will begin selling songs online that are free of copy-protection technology through Apple Inc.’s iTunes Store. The deal, however, doesn’t include music from the label’s biggest act, The Beatles. ITunes customers will soon be able to buy songs by the Rolling Stones, Norah Jones, Coldplay and other top-selling artists for $1.29, or 30 cents more than the copy-protected version. The premium tunes also will be offered in a higher quality than the 99-cent tracks. EMI Chief Executive Eric Nicoli said The Beatles music catalog is excluded from the deal but the company was “working on it.” He declined to set a time frame for negotiations over the catalog. The announcement followed calls by Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs earlier this year for the world’s four major record companies, including EMI Group PLC, to start selling songs online without copy-protection software. The technology, known as digital rights management, or DRM, is designed to combat piracy by preventing unauthorized copying or sharing, but it also can be a consumer headache. Some music players, for instance, support one type of DRM software but not others. The DRM used by Apple does not work with competing services or devices, meaning that consumers can download songs from iTunes to work only on their computers or iPod music players. The lock between the download services and players has drawn criticism from European industry regulators, who argue that it limits buyer choice. “Doing the right thing for the customer going forward is to tear down the walls that impede interoperability,” Jobs told a London news conference. He has previously argued there was little benefit to record companies selling more than 90 percent of their music without DRM on compact discs, then selling the remaining percentage online with DRM. last_img read more
