the University of Colorado Boulder; and Florida State University That rejection didn’t stop Goodell however She received a 2009 grant from a National Science Foundation program aimed at attracting more STEM students into teaching The next year the US Department of Education (ED) gave NMSI $22 million for CSU to join the network The ED grant from a teacher training program created with money from the massive federal stimulus package allowed CSU to hire the master teachers needed to make sure that students and new teachers receive sufficient support Together the grants have also enabled the program to enroll more students At the same time there have been some glitches in trying to follow the UTeach model Goodell says that she’s struggled to provide a required course on research methods because CSU has many fewer graduate students in the sciences on campus who are available to supervise students than do research-intensive universities CSU also lacks the extensive research facilities available at those institutions "We do the best we can" she says "But the students don’t get the same type of lab supervision and the kind of research projects we can offer are much more limited" Many CSU graduate students "are working professionals with day jobs" she notes A poor economy has also taken its toll on the program’s goal to help needy school districts Last year CSU graduated its first class of 14 CSUTeach students "All of them got teaching jobs" Goodell says proudly before adding "but nobody is working in the Cleveland public schools" The problem she explains is that the school district wasn’t hiring last year—not science and math teachers not anybody "They actually laid off 600 teachers" Goodell says So while her students did their field placements in the city’s schools they are now all working elsewhere including one in Tennessee and two in North Carolina That distance makes it impossible for CSU to provide the stipulated support and professional development for these new teachers As it happens she says the Tennessee teacher is being mentored by the University of Tennessee Chattanooga which also joined the NMSI network in 2010 Does Goodell have any advice for universities thinking of joining the NMSI network and embracing the UTeach model The closer a school’s teaching training programs are aligned with the UTeach model she says the better the chance of success But she warns "there are many factors that can get in the way" of a successful replication who attended the all-party meeting briefly. but Michigan’s shield law applies only to grand jury and criminal cases, 2014 1:51 am Related News Four security guards attac-hed with former BJP MP from Amritsar Navjot Singh Sidhu were allegedly withdrawn by the Punjab government on Tuesday. but we could not accommodate them. he was felicitated on behalf of the work done by Darjeeling district.

Spider-Man’ director Marc Webb has been an “enormous” fan of Irrfan Khan and says he roped in the Indian actor as he had the sophistication and commanding presence needed for the role of Dr Ratha “I have been an enormous fan of Irrfan for a very long time I first saw him in ‘The Namesake’’The Warrior’ and in TV series ‘In Treatment’ For Dr RathaI needed someone who projected sophisticationhad lot of strength and a very commanding presence and Irrfan fit that bill He is in the first half of the film and in several scenes” said Webb The 37-year-old director is reluctant to categorise Irrfan’s character into good or bad but says he wanted to work with the actor for a long time and ‘Spider-Man’ provided that opportunity “I would not call his character a good guy or the bad guyI would say he has a job to do and he has started about doing it” Irrfannow a regular face in Hollywood filmshas so far been reluctant to talk about his role in the superhero movie Webbhoweveris more than happy to provide details about the character “Dr Ratha works in Oscorpthe company owned by previous villain Norman Osborn Irrfan plays the boss of Dr Curt Conner He plays an important role in Conner’s transformation as villain ‘The Lizard’ Irrfan provides the pressure” Webb said The 3D rebootstarring Andrew GarfieldEmma Stone and Rhys Ifansis being brought to Indian theatres on June 29 by Sony Picturesa week prior to its US release Webb’s film will be facing competition from the former Spider-Man Tobey Maguirewho starred in three superhit versions as the web-casting superhero The director is aware of the pressure but he decided to approach the movie through Peter Parkerwhose lifehe feelsis still a mystery to fans “We have seen the original Spider-Man but we haven’t seen the original Peter Parker I always had this question ‘What happened to his parents’ “This film really begins when he discovers the briefcase of his father and he goes out searching for him The story is about a kid who goes looking for his father and finds himself and I was interested in exploring that cinematically” As someone who directed an adorable relationship drama ‘500 Days of Summer’Webb had a lot to add to the love story between Gwen Stacy (Stone) and Parker (Garfield) “ObviouslyI am attracted to love stories and that’s what attracted me to this film in a big way Stacy is Peter Parker’s first love I wanted to create a bond which was powerful and intense It is about being in love at a very young age “Emma is an incredibly powerful actressvery charmingvery funny They had a very dynamic chemistry She brought something humorous in him and he brought something dramatic in her and that chemistry was simply magical” Webb says he is interested in taking the story of Peter Parker/Spider-Man forward but a lot depends on how the film is received by the audience “It really depends on the audience reaction but we certainly see the story continuing” Webb said For all the latest Entertainment News

genuine apps (Representational image) Related News Russian cybercriminals used malware planted on Android mobile devices to steal from domestic bank customers and were planning to target European lenders before their arrest investigators and sources with knowledge of the case told Reuters Their campaign raised a relatively small sum by cyber-crime standards –more than 50 million roubles ($892000) –but they had also obtained more sophisticated malicious software for a modest monthly fee to go after the clients of banks in France and possibly a range of other western nations Russia’s relationship to cyber crime is under intense scrutiny after US intelligence officials alleged that Russian hackers had tried to help Republican Donald Trump win the US presidency by hacking Democratic Party servers The Kremlin has repeatedly denied the allegation The gang members tricked the Russian banks’ customers into downloading malware via fake mobile banking applications as well as via pornography and e-commerce programmes according to a report compiled by cyber security firm Group-IB which investigated the attack with the Russian Interior Ministry 16 suspects were arrested by Russian law enforcement authorities in November last year – infected more than a million smartphones in Russia on average compromising 3500 devices a day Group-IB said The hackers targeted customers of state lender Sberbank and also stole money from accounts at Alfa Bank and online payments company Qiwi exploiting weaknesses in the companies’ SMS text message transfer services said two people with direct knowledge of the case Although operating only in Russia before their arrest they had developed plans to target large European banks including French lenders Credit Agricole BNP Paribas and Societe Generale Group-IB said A BNP Paribas spokeswoman said the bank could not confirm this information but added that it “has a significant set of measures in place aimed at fighting cyber attacks on a daily basis” Societe Generale and Credit Agricole declined comment The gang which was called “Cron” after the malware it used did not steal any funds from customers of the three French banks However it exploited the bank service in Russia that allows users to transfer small sums to other accounts by sending an SMS message Having infected the users’ phones the gang sent SMS messages from those devices instructing the banks to transfer money to the hackers’ own accounts The findings illustrate the dangers of using SMS messages for mobile banking a method favoured in emerging countries with less advanced internet infrastructure said Lukas Stefanko a malware researcher at cyber security firm ESET in Slovakia “It’s becoming popular among developing nations or in the countryside where access to conventional banking is difficult for people” he said “For them it is quick easy and they don’t need to visit a bank… But security always has to outweigh consumer convenience” The Russian Interior Ministry said a number of people had been arrested including what it described as the gang leader This was a 30-year-old man living in Ivanovo an industrial city 300 km (185 miles) northeast of Moscow from where he had commanded a team of 20 people across six different regions Four people remain in detention while the others are under house arrest the ministry said in a statement “In the course of 20 searches across six regions police seized computers hundreds of bank cards and SIM cards registered under fake names” it said Group-IB said the existence of the Cron malware was first detected in mid-2015 and by the time of the arrests the hackers had been using it for under a year The core members of the group were detained on Nov 22 last year in Ivanovo Photographs of the operation released by Group-IB showed one suspect face down in the snow as police in ski masks handcuffed him The “Cron” hackers were arrested before they could mount attacks outside Russia but plans to do that were at an advanced stage said the investigators Group-IB said that in June 2016 they had rented a piece of malware designed to attack mobile banking systems called “Tinyz” for $2000 a month The creators of the “Tinyz” malware had adapted it to attack banks in Britain Germany France the United States and Turkey among other countries The “Cron” gang developed software designed to attack lenders including the three French groups it said adding it had notified these and other European banks at risk A spokeswoman for Sberbank said she had no information about the group involved However she said: “Several groups of cybercriminals are working against Sberbank The number of groups and the methods they use to attack us change constantly” “It isn’t clear which specific group is being referred to here because the fraudulent scheme involving Android OS (operating system) viruses is widespread in Russia and Sberbank has effectively combated it for an extensive period of time” Alfa Bank did not provide a comment Qiwi did not respond to multiple requests for comment Google the maker of Android has taken steps in recent years to protect users from downloading malicious code and by blocking apps which are insecure impersonate legitimate companies or engage in deceptive behaviours A Google spokesman said: “We’ve tracked this malware family for several years and will continue to take action on its variants to protect our users” Fake mobile app The Russian authorities bombarded with allegations of state-sponsored hacking are keen to show Russia too is a frequent victim of cyber crime and that they are working hard to combat it The interior and emergencies ministries as well as Sberbank said they were targeted in a global cyberattack earlier this month Since the allegations about the US election hacking further evidence has emerged of what some Western officials say is a symbiotic relationship between cybercriminals and Russian authorities with hackers allowed to attack foreign targets with impunity in return for cooperating with the security services while Moscow clamps down on those operating at home The success of the Cron gang was facilitated by the popularity of SMS-banking services in Russia said Dmitry Volkov head of investigations at Group-IB The gang got their malware on to victims’ devices by setting up applications designed to mimic banks’ genuine apps When users searched online the results would suggest the fake app which they would then download The hackers also inserted malware into fake mobile apps for well-known pornography sites After infecting a customer’s phone the hackers were able to send a text message to the bank initiating a transfer of up to $120 to one of 6000 bank accounts set up to receive the fraudulent payments The malware would then intercept a confirmation code sent by the bank and block the victim from receiving a message notifying them about the transaction “Cron’s success was due to two main factors” Volkov said “First the large-scale use of partner programs to distribute the malware in different ways Second the automation of many (mobile) functions which allowed them to carry out the thefts without direct involvement” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Lifestyle Desk | New Delhi | Updated: October 7 2017 8:30 pm Though both the
