|OSLO， Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Norway's directorate for emergency communication said that one Indian IT worker had access to the state's public safety network for 14 months and some others for a shorter time， newspaper Aftenposten reported Tuesday.
Norwegian Minister of Justice and Public Security Per-Willy Amundsen had previously asked the directorate for an explanation of how subcontractor Broadnet could have given Indian IT people access that requires security clearance.
According to Amundsen， an error could have appeared in connection with outsourcing.
"Some rights have been given in the system that should not have been， and this was left hanging，" the minister said.
In December the directorate received notice from its operator Motorola about a possible deviation from subcontractor's defined operating procedures during a debugging process.
Public broadcaster NRK has also recently reported the IT workers in India， who gained major accesses to the public safety network， had neither valid authorization nor necessary security clearance.
Police， ambulance， fire brigade and hospitals are among the important social functions that depend on functional safety network. The network is to enable fast communication in case of major accidents， natural disasters， police response and acts of terrorism.
The safety network is supposed to be critical infrastructure and vital to national security and should be safer than all other information channels. It is under the law on preventive security and should be operated from Norway.
NRK has seen documented evidence that showed the network being operated from India for a long time. In addition， several independent sources have also confirmed that this unauthorized and illegal access has undergone over time.
With this access， IT workers in India could have with ease shut down parts of the safety network， and the Norwegian authorities could not prevent this， since there is no cooperation between security authorities in Norway and India， NRK reported.
WASHINGTON Cheap Air Max 97 , Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- As many as 50 percent of all natural history specimens held in the world's museums could be wrongly named, said a study published Monday.
"Many areas in the biological sciences, including academic studies of evolution and applied conservation ... are underpinned by accurate naming," lead author Robert Scotland of the Department of Plant Sciences at Oxford University said in a statement.
"Without accurate names on specimens Cheap Nike VaporMax Mens , the records held in collections around the world would make no sense, as they don't correspond to the reality outside."
Scotland and colleagues studied 4,500 specimens of the African ginger genus Aframomum, on which a detailed monographic study was completed in 2014 Cheap Nike VaporMax Womens , providing an accurate account of all the species and their specimens.
The team were surprised to find that prior to this monograph at least 58 percent of specimens were either misidentified, given an outdated or redundant name, or only identified to the genus or family.
As few plant groups have been recently monographed, the team suggested that a similar percentage of wrong names might be expected in many other groups.
The researchers also found specimens from the same plant might often be given different names in different museums. An analysis of 21 Cheap Nike VaporMax CS ,075 specimens of the Dipterocarpaceae, a family of rainforest trees from Asia, the team found 29 percent had different names in different herbaria.
Mistakes were also contained within aggregated records stored online. The team scoured the records of Ipomoea -- a large and diverse genus which includes the sweet potato -- on the Global Biodiversity Information Facility database.
Examining the names found on 49,500 specimens from the Americas Cheap Nike VaporMax Laceless , they found that 40 percent of these were outdated synonyms rather than the current name, and 16 percent of the names were unrecognizable or invalid. In addition, 11 percent of the specimens weren't identified, being given only the name of the genus.
Three reasons were attributed to these inaccurate names.
First Cheap Nike VaporMax Flyknit , they suggested that there simply isn't enough time or research devoted to writing monographs.
Second, they pointed out that the number of specimens in the world is increasing too quickly for research to keep up -- with 50 percent of the world's specimens in 2000 having been collected since 1969.
And finally, there are now so many museums and herbaria around the world that experts cannot view all the specimens in a genus and revise the names accordingly.
While Scotland and his team have shown that the names of flowering plants are commonly incorrect, other researchers have shown that the insect kingdom is potentially in an even worse situation.
Of 1.8 million different described species on Earth Cheap Nike VaporMax Black , 0.35 million are flowering plants and a further 0.95 million are insects, according to the study.
"We think a conservative estimate is that up to half the world's natural history specimens could be incorrectly named,' said Zoe Goodwin, the first author of the paper.
The findings were published in the U.S. journal Current Biology.
WINDHOEK Cheap Nike VaporMax Off White , Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- Some banks in Namibia have responded to the repo rate cut announced by the central bank Wednesday.
The Bank of Namibia cut the repo rate by 25 basis points from 7 percent to 6.75 percent citing a decline in inflation.
Inflation has declined consistently on a monthly basis since the 8.2 percent high in January; in July it fell to 5.4 percent, which is within the preferred range of 6.0 to 3.0 percent.
Standard Bank Namibia said Thursday that they had cut both the lending and home loan base rates by 0.25 percent as of Aug. 16.
The new prime lending and home base rates, the bank said, will drop from 10.75 percent to 10.50 percent.
