La Gomera isla invitada en la feria Gastrocanarias 2016

El presidente del Cabildo de La Gomera, Casimiro Curbelo, anima a productores y empresarios a aprovechar el turismo para elevar la rentabilidad de la producción agroalimentaria de las islas, y especialmente de La Gomera, de la que destaca la “alta calidad y singularidad” de productos como el almogrote, los quesos, los vinos, los mojos, el gofio, la “rica” repostería y la “miel de palma”.

El máximo representante insular hizo estas declaraciones durante la inauguración del III Salón Gastronómico de Canarias, que tuvo lugar hoy en el Recinto Ferial de Tenerife, y que ha hecho de La Gomera la primera isla invitada.

“El sector primario puede convertirse en una actividad rentable si lo convertimos en la despensa no sólo de los canarios, sino también de los más de 13 millones de turistas que nos visitan”, afirmó antes de informar que la isla colombina ha habilitado un stand de 64 metros cuadrados, con ubicación preferente, que se convertirá en un escaparate para la difusión y servicios de la isla, además del espacio en el que se realizarán diferentes actividades vinculadas con la cultura y las tradiciones.

Curbelo insistió en que el III Salón Gastronómico de Canarias, que se celebra hasta el próximo día 26, será, sin duda, una magnífica ocasión para promocionar productos y empresas insulares, pues está previsto que asistan unos 12.000 profesionales del sector. “Propietarios de restaurantes, camareros, alumnos de centros formativos de hostelería y restauración, representantes de tiendas y mercados gourmets, medios de comunicación y, por supuesto, cocineros como Braulio Simancas, chef gomero que se encargará del show-cooking que hoy tendrá lugar”, detalló.

“Con más razón en tiempos de dificultades, estamos obligados a aprovechar todas y cada una de nuestras ventajas,  ampliar y mejorar la oferta que brindamos al turista y, por consiguiente, dar más sabor canario al turismo”, dijo para después añadir que “tenemos que apostar no sólo por una mayor presencia de los productos agroalimentarios en la difusión de los valores turísticos regionales que se realiza en el exterior, sino también aprovechar la afluencia de visitantes para brindar la gastronomía de la tierra”.

Al hacerlo ayudaremos a los sectores productivos tradicionales de nuestra economía: la agricultura y la ganadería. Y al hacer rentable la producción local también ayudaremos a reducir la dependencia de las islas del exterior, además de fijar la población y evitar la emigración y el despoblamiento de territorios, para finalmente generar empleo y progreso en nuestro archipiélago.

Por todo, Curbelo invitó a hacer una nueva revolución agraria en Canarias, que comience en este Salón Gastronómico, y que tenga como objetivo llevar todo lo bueno de nuestra producción agroalimentaria y nuestra cocina a los platos no sólo de nuestras  casas, sino también de los hogares de quienes nos visitan. 

it has been very hard to prove

The rules of War 2.0 (or 3.0) are murky. Experts and pundits say that cyberwarfare is happening. And it makes sense. But it has been very hard to prove.

 

A new report adds to the body of evidence, charging that the Russian military is waging fashion bags a sustained cyber campaign against Ukrainian military and law enforcement agencies, and the purpose is to extract a steady stream fashion handbags sale of classified documents that can aid violence and on cheap coach outlet the ground combat.

 

Lookingglass, a security firm based in Arlington, Va., and Baltimore, publishes a report Tuesday documenting a real life instance of a cyberwar campaign.

 

CEO Chris Coleman says the attacks are persistent, but not sophisticated. "We're not claiming we found some big exploit in the Windows operating system," he says. "We tracked malware that was in emails, and it shows full scale coordination."

 

Lookingglass says a dedicated group of hackers is getting Ukrainian military, counterintelligence, border patrol and local police to open emails with malicious attachments.

 

Only, they look legit. fashion bags It's masterful so far as manipulation goes because of the "lure documents" that attackers use as bait.

 

Lead researcher Jason Lewis gives an example of a Microsoft Word file, dated Jan. 15, 2015. The words "not for distribution" are written on it.

 

"That document appears to be something that was on a Ukrainian military computer," Lewis says. Hackers stole the document, then sent it to another Ukrainian security agency with the malware hidden inside. "So the idea being that someone would see: 'Oh, this is news for today. Let me go and take a look and open it.' "

 

The malware would then infect their computer, so that the hackers could extract more classified coach outlet online intelligence: on the numbers of Ukrainian troops in reconnaissance battalions, the equipment they use and the rebel leaders they want.

 

This so called spear phishing attack is the same kind that got Sony Pictures. Lewis, who used to work at the National Security Agency, says military officers are human, too. "You probably have folks that don't know better and will open documents without thinking twice," he says.

 

Lookingglass says the attacks that focused on collecting combat intel took off in late April 2014, right after Ukraine's acting president declared a military operation against pro Russian separatists.

 

The firm is tracking the activity using virtual private servers set up in Ukraine, which enable them to get scans of different attacks.

 

Researchers also collect malware samples from Virus Total, a free online service where hackers and researchers can submit documents to test whether they'll pass or fail antivirus scans.

 

Virus Total saves cheap coach black friday documents scanned, thereby creating a huge repository that anyone can sift through. Lookingglass did advanced queries, using fields including date and location, to pull additional samples of malware that targeted Ukrainian military and law enforcement.

 

A Window Into The Rules

 

In cyberattacks, it's hard to know exactly who the hacker is.

 

Lookingglass names the Russian security service (what used to be called the KGB). And after Ukraine declared the same last September, researcher Jason Lewis says, the attackers tweaked their malicious software to slip under the radar again: "They said, 'Oh, we've been discovered. We'll change to this new remote access tool.' "

 

Researchers also found that when both sides negotiated a cease fire last June, the cyberattacks stopped for that same period as well.

 

"That is incredibly interesting," says Fred Cate, a cybersecurity expert and professor at Indiana University Maurer School of Law. "It's like the adversaries are actually thinking of themselves as attacking."

 

It looks like the hackers see themselves as part of the battlefield, he says, "and so they stop those attacks when a cease fire's in place as opposed to thinking of themselves as just intelligence gathering, which usually continues even during a ceasefire."

 

This research is among the few documented examples of cyberwarfare. While it doesn't pinpoint specific stolen data that reconfigured a specific battlefield, it does reveal the edge of a new weapon against enemies.

 

"If you can substitute Cyber Monday coach sale fake instructions, if you can get them to do the wrong thing, if you can get them to send the troops where you want them sent," Cate says, "this could dramatically alter the way in which we think about warfare."

 

Computer scientist Stefan Savage at the University of California, San Diego says in many cyber investigations, like this one, the evidence is circumstantial. Researchers have the digital version of fashion handbags tire tracks and gun casings not DNA and fingerprints.

 

But from a technical standpoint, he says, entities who are not Russian could coach black friday sale have carried it out. "The question has to be 'Who else would have the motivation to do it?' because this a Coach Cyber Monday significant piece of work. It's effort."
