For example, here's a DIY video showing would-be Jihadists how to make weaponsIBTimes UKLike al-Qaeda before it, the Islamic State Isis has embraced technology to communicate, spread propaganda and target new recruits, but this new generation of digital jihadis has emerged in the era of free, easy-to-use and fully encrypted mobile messaging apps such as Telegram and WhatsApp.In many ways, at least on Telegram, many channels are similar in tone, speech and structure to a chatroom managed by Anonymous.It's a terrorist-themed whack-a-mole.Its telegram posts back up the idea that the group is extremely limited in actual hacking ability – in some cases proudly boasting about 'hacks' and defacements on websites including car dealerships, florists and CD-duplication studios.Graphics by Daesh supporters explain what a "Kafir" is and why they must be fought against on Telegram click to enlarge Interestingly, through our research on Telegram we also found numerous channels that seemed to be totally peaceful, posting mp3 recordings of imam's prayers and daily Quran scripture reminders.Indeed, some of these people know their way around Adobe Photoshop – bright graphics, striking fonts and perfectly angled shots of men on horseback.
Former screen actor and current real-world bizarre performance artiste Shia LaBeouf has come up with a new way of making people shake their heads and worry about his mental state: posting his GPS location online and asking us to come and find him.The new neediest man on the planet is orchestrating this project through Twitter with involvement of sorts from Vice and several public art institutions, so it appears legit and not the actions of a man who wants to be eaten in a forest by a German cannibal he sought out on the internet because he's got nothing left to live for , and look -- some people actually went and found him:Which raises the question... what would you do with Shia LeBoeuf were you to stumble across him crying into his phone somewhere and looking dishevelled?Maybe he'd just like someone to ask him if he's OK, like people on Facebook are always saying you should.Except they never do.He's probably still a bit rich, so maybe lunch somewhere nice?Get him to buy you some shoes, then go home and listen to the Pet Shop Boys?

Photograph: Brendan Mcdermid/ReutersBritish people are not demanding more transparency from the intelligence services as loudly as Americans, the former director of the US National Security Agency NSA and CIA has said.On the next page he said Snowden highlighted the need for a broad cultural shift in terms of transparency and what constitutes consent.That is no longer the pattern, it is the private sector … we are going through a cultural adjustment.But he added the suite of usable techniques had been reduced from 13 to six and the interrogator believed he would have got information if that had not been the case.The UK, he said, referring to the killing of Jihadi John , has now joined the queue .The jihadist narrative is that there is undying enmity between Islam and the modern world so when Trump says they all hate us, he s using their narrative … he s feeding their recruitment video.
In mid-May, Gen Gholamreza Jalali, the head of Iran's Civil Defence Organisation, said he saw the mainly Sunni kingdom as his chief threat in the coming year.On 25 May, a self-proclaimed hacker from Saudi Arabia calling himself "Da3s" apparently attacked the websites of Iran's Statistical Centre and Registration Office, defacing the homepages with a photo of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, who fought an eight-year war with Iran in the 1980s.Since the Stuxnet computer worm hit Iran's nuclear facilities in 2010, the country has invested heavily in cyber capabilities and set up a team of trained hackers known as the Iranian Cyber-Army.'Mother of terrorism'As the attacks continued, the messages left by hackers became increasingly political and hostile.Last year, more than 400 Iranian pilgrims had died in a stampede, leading to a war of words between Iranian and Saudi officials.In his latest attacks, Da3s pointed to the Yemen conflict and castigated the Iranian authorities for boycotting the Hajj.
A Muslim worshipper prays, during the holy month of Ramadan, in the Gallipoli Mosque located in the western Sydney suburb of Auburn, AustraliaToday 6 June marks the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan for most of the world's 1.7 billion Muslims, about three million of who live in the UK.Looking to tap into the growing $2.1tn £1.5tn Muslim lifestyle market, app developers are offering a wide range of Ramadan-related mobile apps.From religious texts and directions to Mecca to daily reminders and iftar recipes, IBTimes UK has hand-picked some essential apps to help you during the auspicious month.It includes additional nifty tools to help you find the closest mosque and halal restaurant.WFP also launched an Arabic version of the award-winning app just in time for Ramadan as well to help feed Syrian refugee children in Lebanon.Chicago-based food blogger Yvonne Maffei's My Halal Kitchen app features a wide range of scrumptious recipes and video guides across different cuisines, from red lentil and carrot soup to shrimp harissa tagine.
In 2012, the Netherlands-based non-profit group announced it would send cargo ships to Mars in 2016, with the goal of setting up a permanent colony there some years later.After a lengthy and contentious publicity campaign, 100 potential astronauts were selected from applications sent in by the public.Then the first four colonists are fired off in 2026 and the plan is to send further teams out with fresh supplies every two years.That live feed could be fascinating – fascinatingly gruesome, that is – because unless Mars One sustains a breathable atmosphere in the habitats, which won't be easy, the colonists will suffocate.A senior Muslim cleric has banned devout followers of Islam from going on the mission, claiming it was suicide.The Chinese won't be helping either, after state media branded the scheme a scam.
The recent death of boxer Muhammad Ali will be honored with a return to theaters for Ali, the 2001 biopic that chronicled 10 memorable years in the celebrated pugilist s life.The film, which received two Academy Award nominations one for star Will Smith and another for supporting actor Jon Voight , will be screened in select theaters nationwide over the weekend in a brief, limited run.With the passing of Muhammad Ali, we have received many requests for this film to return to theaters, in celebration of his life, said Sony Pictures president of Worldwide Distribution, Rory Bruer, in a statement accompanying the announcement.The cast also featured future Oscar winner Jamie Foxx as Ali s cornerman Drew Bundini Brown; Mario Van Peebles as Malcolm X, Jada Pinkett Smith as Ali s first wife, Sonji Roi; Giancarlo Esposito as Ali s father, Cassius Clay Sr.; and LeVar Burton as Martin Luther King Jr.Ali is set between the years 1964 and 1974, when he first won the heavyweight boxing championship from Sonny Liston and when he later regained it from George Foreman in the famous Rumble in the Jungle match.During the years between those championship bouts, Ali converted to Islam, changed his name from Cassius Clay, refused to serve in the Vietnam War, and was a high-profile figure in the civil rights upheaval of the time.Due to the relationship he developed with Ali and his friends and family while making the movie, Smith was chosen to be one of the pallbearers for the boxer s memorial service.
And it has its own news agency, Amaq, which breaks stories for a global audience.NU was originally founded to stem the spread of Wahhabism, a militant, ultra-conservative version of Islam that originated in Saudi Arabia.In Indonesia, Nuraniyah said, jihad is a social activity — not just a social media activity.Nuraniyah argues that such radicalizing activities must somehow be disrupted or limited in order to stem the growth of ISIS.When the Indonesian government decided to block access to some two dozen websites last year due to their radical content, it did so with a clumsy hand that caused a major public backlash.That uproar illustrates the challenges that await any broad government efforts to quash non-violent extremism, Nuraniyah said.
Physicists have trapped 219 beryllium ions in strong electronic and magnetic fields and entangled their quantum properties with lasers.Quantum entanglement is the spooky phenomenon that links up particles quantum states even across vast distances, meaning that you can t measure one without affecting the other.Ion cageTrapping more than a handful of ions in a chamber for quantum experiments is challenging, because you need strong electromagnetic fields to wrangle them into place, says Justin Bohnet at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado.Once the ions were in place, the team used a set of lasers to cool them to nearly absolute zero.Such mysterious materials could represent an undiscovered phase of matter, and studying them might help scientists learn how to make superconducting materials stable at room temperature, Islam says.Journal reference: Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.aad9958Read more: Quantum computer firm D-Wave claims massive performance boost; Ethereal quantum state stored in solid crystal

Christianity has lost support, while more are in favor of other world religions, and atheism. It appears from the analysis presented in an upcoming anthology of SOM University of Gothenburg. Although weakened Christianity is the religion that is valued the most, 45 percent are positive. Christianity and Islam have in common is that relatively few people in Sweden are neutral to them. Atheism was the new parameter 2011, and the latest survey were 23 percent in favor of the position that there is no god.

President Obama would like to see more women in the corner office.Less than a week after he formally endorsed her, President Obama is stumping aggressively for Hillary Clinton.Obama s remarks today addressed the totality of his own record on women s issues—from signing the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act as soon as he took office to pushing for free birth control access in the Affordable Care Act.Obama dismissed Trump s frequent calls for the president to use the term radical Islamic terrorism, saying, There s no magic to the phrase radical Islam.Donald Trump with actions or Hillary Clinton with her words?Which actions he means isn t really clear.
It s an unconventional reaction since many would be scared of being on ISIS s hit list; but Webb, who leads CenterDC, is an unconventional Muslim leader.It s not just ISIS that has taken notice — so have thousands of young Muslims who follow him on social media.That s why he goes the extra mile to reach young people where they can be found: their smartphones.He also uses it to dispel myths that Snapchat users sometimes message him directly.And last month, he hosted a traveling town hall discussion called To prom or not to prom, in which Muslim teens debated whether prom is haram, or forbidden, because of its proximity to alcohol and sex.American Islam, perhaps because of its youth, is still fuzzy as a concept, unlike, say Indonesian Islam, which is well branded as diverse and tolerant.
Microsoft today announced a new project that aims to help enterprises protect their data as it moves between servers and devices.The new service will go into public preview in the next month.These realities make it more critical than ever to have solutions that prevent data loss and track information at the file level regardless of where data resides or with whom it is shared.To protect this data then, the Azure Information Protection service will allow users to tag their data based on its source, context and content.Microsoft notes that this classification can be automatic or user-driven, and once data is labelled, administrators can set different protection levels based on these tags.For the most part, these features don t sound all that different from Microsoft s current Azure Rights Management tools.
Kuwait practices Sharia law, and while homosexuality is not specifically outlawed, Article 193 for the penal code punishes debauchery, which is defined by the courts as male homosexuality.Sharing views about homosexuality, which is a sin, could also be seen as going against the Quran, which would mean that the individual could face the death penalty for blasphemy introduced in 2012 .The death penalty would be taken off the table as long as the defendant agrees to publicly repent and apologise for their 'crime'.Trolls reporting users' tweets to authorities across the Middle EastHowever, some trolls on Twitter are still hoping to silence Muslims who support the LGBT community by deliberately reporting them to authorities, as seen by The Daily Beast.The trolls were seen doxing young Muslim women on Sunday 19 June and Monday 20 June by screencapping tweets they found offensive and retweeting them so that other users could insult them.So far, the most serious case of blasphemy involving social media in Kuwait was in 2012, when a man was jailed for 10 years for insulting the Prophet Muhammad, as well as Saudi Arabian and Bahrainian officials, on Twitter.
Pope Francis has become, in effect, the planet s pastor and reconciler-in-chief, washing the feet of the poor and incarcerated, taking in refugees at the Vatican, meeting with Muslim clerics, venerating China s long civilizational heritage and declaring that climate change and inequality are moral issues.In a losing appeal to voters ahead of the referendum, Richard Branson, the Virgin entrepreneur who is in many ways the face of a globally-oriented Britain, warned that jobs and investment opportunities that depend on the link with Europe would be at risk if the U.K. left the EU.Writing from Cape Town, South Africa, gay imam Muhsin Hendricks says that, after the Orlando massacre, it is time for Islam to reassess its stance on sexual orientation: The orthodox belief that homosexuality is a sin — based on the story of Sodom and Gomorrah — is what leads to the nuances of homophobia around the massacre in Orlando.A ruling is due soon from a tribunal under the aegis of the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea on a territorial dispute over islands between the Philippines and China.Writing from Tambopata, Peru, Next Gen Scientist s Aaron Pomerantz discovers a remarkable collaboration between ants and butterflies in bamboo stalks in the remote Amazon jungle.We not only deliver breaking news from the best sources with original reportage on the ground and user-generated content; we bring the best minds and most authoritative as well as fresh and new voices together to make sense of events from a global perspective looking around, not a national perspective looking out.
When Isis overran Mosul and Tikrit two years ago, Iraqis who had lost faith in their military rallied behind the Iranian-backed Shia militias.While toys to some, the drones are playing a crucial role in the conflict according to Sadiq al-Husseini, a commander in the Badr Organisation – the largest and oldest of Iraq s Shia militias.Considering the militias reputations for war crimes, their bombardment of Fallujah remains controversial.According to the contractor, Hussam al-Mayali, the drones batteries only last forty minutes before the operators have to recharge them, so there are always spares on hand for longer missions – al-Mayali s deployment lasted ten minutes.Badr prefers the American, Chinese, and German models for military missions, adds Al-Husseini.But coordination between the branches of the Iraqi security forces remains poor, and the Ministry of Interior has ingratiated itself with the Shia militias at the expense of its relationships with the army, the counterterrorism service and the Americans.
