New computer software virus cripples networks

New computer software virus cripples networks

A new, highly virulent strain of malicious software that is crippling computers globally appears to have been sown in Ukraine, where it badly hobbled much of the government and private sector on the eve of a holiday celebrating a post-Soviet constitution. The fresh cyber-assault Tuesday leveraged the same intrusion tool as a similar attack in May and proved again just how disruptive to daily life sophisticated cyber-assaults can be in this age of heavy reliance on computers. Hospitals, government offices and major multinationals were among the casualties of the ransomware payload, which locks up computer files with all-but-unbreakable encryption and then demands a ransom for its release. Ukraine and Russia appeared hardest hit. In the United States, it affected companies such as the drugmaker Merck and Mondelez International, the conglomerate of food brands such as Oreo and Nabisco. Multinationals, including the global law firm DLA Piper and Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk, were also affected. The virus' pace appeared to slow by Wednesday, in part because the malware appeared to require direct contact between computer networks, a factor that may have limited its spread in regions with fewer connections to Ukraine.

Florida man catches snook from third floor balcony

Florida man catches snook from third floor balcony

Video of a Florida man’s “fishing first” has gone viral. The man, identified only as Joe, eyes a pair of snook in Tampa Bay from a balcony and decides to cast a lure out.  His first cast is unsuccessful, but he lands one of them on his second cast. The angler calls for a friend to run downstairs and out to reel the fish in.  He even tosses his pole down to the man before running down to take a picture with his catch. The snook was released back into the water. Tampa-based Salt Strong posted the video to YouTube earlier this week.   Within days the video had been viewed more than 40,000 times.   >>WATCH THE VIDEO BY CLICKING HERE

Trump pushes GOP to solve health care overhaul riddle

Trump pushes GOP to solve health care overhaul riddle

A day after Republican leaders unexpectedly delayed action on a Senate health care bill, President Donald Trump pressed GOP Senators to get on board with the legislative effort, arguing that it’s time to on from the Obama health law. “Obamacare is dying, it’s essentially dead,” the President said in a photo op at the White House. “It’s been a headache for everybody, it’s been a nightmare for many,” the President added, as he made clear his desire for the GOP to reach an agreement that can get 50 votes in the Senate. Trump: It's 'very tough' to get the health care plan approved, but it would be 'far better than Obamacare' https://t.co/Q3WDqN4gCr — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) June 28, 2017 In his remarks, Mr. Trump sounded optimistic notes about getting Republicans to back a health care bill, saying several times that he had a good meeting on Tuesday with GOP Senators. “We’re working very hard, we’ve given ourselves a little more time to make it perfect,” the President said. But in the halls of Congress, there was no sense that the GOP was on the verge of a health care breakthrough, as Republicans staked out different points of view on what should change. In a letter to the President, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) set out four different changes to the legislation, again expressing his opposition to a new regime of tax credits that would be used to help people pay for health insurance. Paul also frowned on a late change in the bill, which would say that if you go more than nine weeks without health insurance, then insurance companies could force you to wait 6 months before letting you buy an insurance plan. Sen Rand Paul R-KY wants 'continuous coverage' plan out – says it's a 'Republican version of the individual mandate' pic.twitter.com/18eeSsqRvz — Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) June 28, 2017 Paul said that appears to be nothing more than a “Republican version of the individual mandate,” the Obama Administration plan that forced people to buy health insurance, under the threat of a tax penalty if they did not. Republicans are expected to go home tomorrow. Congress is not in session next week. Lawmakers would return to Washigton the week of July 10.

Tulsa Police are warning people about a new phone scam. TPD says someone is calling citizens claiming to be from the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office.  The person calling told Sue Freeman her husband missed jury duty and had a bench warrant out for his arrest.  Freemand said the man, claiming to be Sgt. Daniels from TCSO, told her to go to CVS and load money onto a throwaway credit card and then meet him at the Sheriff's Office.  Freeman said she hung up the phone.  TPD says no state or federal agency will call you for money like this.
Tulsa's 44th homicide victim has been identified. Tulsa police say the man who was shot to death outside of the Turley Food Express Monday night is 26-year old Denerrious Hopkins. A driver arrived on the store's parking lot, stepped out of his vehicle and opened fire, striking Hopkins five times. He died at the hospital. Witnesses were unable to identify the kind of car the shooter was driving, or any details about his appearance. If you can help with the investigation, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
Observers will be able to see the next solar eclipse in Tulsa at 12:24 p.m. on August 21, 2017. The first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in the U.S. in 99 years has heightened anticipation and excitement in small, rural towns of southwestern Kentucky.   With 32,000 people, Hopkinsville is nearest the point of greatest eclipse. The moon will pass in front of the sun and cast darkness over the rolling farmland, plunging it into darkness for 2 minutes and 40 seconds.   Tens of thousands will watch the eclipse from Hopkinsville - estimates reach 100,000 people from as far as Japan and South Africa.   One shop owner says she'll camp at work instead of risking traffic, though the city requested National Guard help on roads. The airport is being upgraded. The mayor says Hopkinsville residents are ready and excited to host eclipse-chasers from around the world.
She didn’t live in Sand Springs, and it’s unclear why she ended up in a bathroom at the Walmart there. Katherine Caraway, 29, died in that bathroom. While police say there are no signs of foul play, they still need to unravel the mystery of why she was there. KRMG has learned Caraway had been living in Muskogee, but was originally from Texas. A mother of a young son, she apparently entered the store Friday, and the boy wasn’t with her. Her body was discovered in a family bathroom at the back of the store Monday. Employees apparently thought the bathroom door was locked because it was out of order, and had hung a sign to that effect on the door. But Monday, they unlocked the door and made the sad discovery. Police say her death appears to have been from natural causes, but the medical examiner has not completed its report so the cause of death is pending.
There is no 'A' for effort, when it comes to committing crimes. Just ask a couple in Sand Springs who were recently arrested for going to the same check cashing store on multiple occasions to allegedly cash stolen checks.  Police say on their third attempt, 48-year-old Dawn Price walked into Approved Cash with a suspicious check and an identification card of another woman.  Employees called for help and she was put into handcuffs.     Her accomplice, 34-year-old Robert Jefferson, is accused of trying to cash a stolen mortgage check belonging to an employee’s former boss. Both were booked into the Tulsa County Jail.  As of early Wednesday morning, neither has bonded out. 
Department of Corrections believe Oklahoma prisons are in trouble.  Director Joe Allbaugh made the announcement on Tuesday, stating the system suffers from aging, low staffing, skyrocketing medical costs for aging inmates and no budget increases in the face of growing inmate populations.  Allbaugh went on to add the day is approaching when the system will 'be incapable of taking more prisoners.'  For reference, Oklahoma's prisons are operating at 109 percent of capacity. Do you think something needs to be done about our prisons?  Let us know in the comment’s section.
