Cybercrime at Hotels?

Let's face it, hackers love hotels. And not because they want to get away and sip margaritas by the pool. The huge volume of personal information collected, transmitted, and stored by the hospitality industry has made it a prime target for cybercrime. Learn More

   Chimps Attack American at South Africa Sanctuary

Chimpanzees at a sanctuary in eastern South Africa pulled an American researcher into their enclosure, bit him severely and dragged him nearly half a mile.

The American researcher was giving a lecture at the Jane Goodall Institute when two chimpanzees grabbed him by his feet and pulled him under a fence into their enclosure, said Jeffrey Wicks of the NetCare 911 emergency services company.

The researcher was in intensive care on Friday in critical condition after undergoing surgery at the Mediclinic hospital in Nelspruit hospital officials said.

Edwin Jay, chairman of the Jane Goodall Institute South Africa, said the researcher had crossed the first two fences separating the chimpanzees from visitors and was standing close to the second fence, which is electrified, at the time of the attack.

The researcher lost part of an ear and parts of his fingers in the attack. The sanctuary's director fired into the air to scare the chimps away from the man, then chased them back into their enclosure.

The international institute founded by renowned priatologist Jane Goodall opened the sanctuary in 2006. It is home to chimpanzees, which are not native to South Africa, but rescued from further north in Africa.
 Florida Judge to Rule Next Week on Zimmerman’s Bid for Release

MIAMI — A month after he ordered George Zimmerman back to jail for misleading the court about his finances, a Florida judge heard arguments on Friday on whether George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin’s killer, should be freed again. Judge Kenneth R. Lester left the bench without ruling after almost 3 hours of testimony. He is expected to rule in writing some time next week. 

Zimmerman sat listening to lawyers spar over his trustworthiness and the penalty he should pay for having misled the court. On June 1 of this year Zimmerman had his bond revoked once he failed to tell the courts at his initial bond hearing that he had a large sum of money in the bank.

Most of the money came from a website set up for his defense. The website has since been shut down. Relying on jailhouse tapes from conversations between Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, prosecuters say that Zimmerman lied about the existence of the money, which at one point totaled more than $200,000.
