Putin Obama handshake

Have you ever since a more awkward handshake than between Putin and Obama?


welcome to the cult

29 September 2015 - 08:24 AM

Did y'all know that the SEC is a cult?  

Yeah, well when you're right, you're right....

Feherty, who was born in Northern Ireland, is actually a huge Alabama football fan. He attended his first college football game at Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2005 and was hooked. It was the most extraordinary atmosphere he'd ever witnessed and he now tries to keep up with the Tide when he's not traveling covering golf.

"College sports, college football, and the SEC especially, you don't see it anywhere else in the world," Feherty told AL.com in an interview. "It really is amazing. These are just kids between the ages of 18 and 22 out there playing at that level, and the alumni -- it's like a cult."


Malware on iPhone apps

24 September 2015 - 01:09 PM

(Reuters) - Apple Inc said the WeChat messaging app and car-hailing app DiDi Taxi were among the 25 most popular apps that were found to be infected with malicious software, the first-ever large-scale attack on its App Store.

The company had not previously disclosed which apps had been affected, although many had been identified by third parties.

Apple said on Sunday it was cleaning up its App Store after several cybersecurity firms reported that unknown hackers had embedded a malware, dubbed XcodeGhost, in hundreds, possibly thousands, of Chinese apps.

"We have no information to suggest that the malware has been used to do anything malicious," Apple said in its XcodeGhost Q&A Web page on Thursday.

Other infected apps include Baidu Inc's Baidu Music app, a music app from Internet portal NetEase Inc and the 58 Classified-Job, Used Cars, Rent app.

Tencent Holdings Ltd owns WeChat.

This is the first reported case of large number of malicious software programs making their way past Apple's stringent app review process.

Cyber security firm FireEye Inc said earlier this week that the security breach was much bigger than previously thought, affecting more than 4,000 apps on the App Store, compared with the earlier estimate of 39.

Prior to this attack, a total of just five malicious apps had ever been found in the App Store, according to cyber security firm Palo Alto Networks Inc.

Apple said on Thursday it was working with developers to get the apps back on the App Store and was blocking new apps that contained the malware. (apple.co/1jdKVsy)

The company also said some of the affected apps could be fixed through updates.

The hackers targeted the App Store using a counterfeit version of Xcode "toolkit", Apple's app-building software.

Many Chinese app developers downloaded the tainted software kit instead of the original one because of the slow download speeds from Apple's official servers located overseas.

Apple said it was working to make Xcode faster for Chinese developers to download. (Reporting by Anya George Tharakan; additional reporting by Sneha Banerjee in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D'Silva)

Season to date summary.... I'm buying it

23 September 2015 - 08:01 AM

After just three weeks of play, the SEC has seen quite a few crazy twists and turns.

Auburn and Arkansas have officially bottomed out, as both preseason darlings have put on horrible performances two weeks in a row. Alabama has been toppled in September for the first time since the 2007 season. Steve Spurrier has apparently already been fired, according to many South Carolina fans, at least. Much has happened in a short amount of time. Which leads to one major truth: things are going to continue to change. Alabama had a rough night this past Saturday, but as we've seen before, the defending SEC Champs have a lot of football left to turn things around.

1. Ole Miss Rebels. You beat the champ, you get his spot. It's as simple as that. The Rebels continue to look the part of a legitimate SEC and playoff contender.

2. Georgia Bulldogs. The game against South Carolina is what it looks like when this year's Georgia squad brings their 'A' game, and it is scary. If Greyson Lambert can continue to play even close to the level he did on Saturday, this team has zero chance of not being in Atlanta come the first weekend of December.

3. LSU Tigers. The Bayou Bengals just bludgeoned and mauled the Tigers from the Plains on Saturday. That was an old school butt-kicking by Les Miles and his crew. It can't be certain, but Leonard Fournette is probably not a human being.

4. Alabama Crimson Tide. Predictably, the internet is filling up with all kinds of "THE DYNASTY IS OVAAAAA" click-bait articles right now. The bottom line is that Alabama, despite going minus-five in the turnover margin and being victimized by a miraculous touchdown pass that only Auburn could draw up, had multiple chances to beat the team now currently ranked #1 in this poll.

5. Texas A&M Aggies. A&M's been impressive for sure, but Arizona State is starting to look pretty soft. The Aggies have an unbelievable amount of speed and athleticism, but do they have the toughness to win big time battles in the trenches?

6. Tennessee Volunteers. The Vols are a good, young team looking to get over the hump and win a big game. They have another opportunity this weekend in the Swamp.

7. Mississippi State Bulldogs. Dak Prescott and company devoured one of the most delicious cupcakes out there in Northwestern State, which tells us absolutely nothing. They haven't had their season go up in flames yet, so they are holding serve here, the best of the middle of the pack.

8. Florida Gators. Will Muschamp apparently left his defensive coaching abilities in Gainesville, as the Gators defense completely stifled a pretty explosive Kentucky offense. There is still a lot of work to be done for Jim McElwain, but this team can hang with just about everybody on their schedule.

9. Kentucky Wildcats. Tough loss to Florida this past weekend, but Mark Stoops has this team headed in the right direction, which is something that can't be said for many of the teams below them on this list.

10. Auburn Tigers. Can someone check to make sure Auburn made it out of Baton Rouge alive?

11. Missouri Tigers. Before the season began, someone must have asked Gary Pinkel if there was any way he could make winning look even uglier. Consider that challenge accepted. Mizzou has no offense whatsoever.

12. South Carolina Gamecocks. Things are not looking good in Columbia, South Carolina. The wheels could start to come off pretty soon. The OBC has one last chance to turn things around.

13. Arkansas Razorbacks. The Hogs got clowned by Texas Tech, and then Bielema got schooled by Kliff Kingsbury in the postgame presser.

14. Vanderbilt Commodores. How bad has the bottom half of the SEC looked thus far this season? Let's put it this way: Vanderbilt winning a game or two in conference play isn't out of the question.
