Kodi

Kodi media center, formerly known as XBMC Media Center, is an award-winning free and open source cross-platform software media player and entertainment hub for digital media for HTPCs (Home theater PCs). Its graphical user interface (GUI) allows the user to easily browse and view videos, photos, podcasts, and music from a harddrive, optical disc, local network, and the internet using only a few buttons.

Kodi can be used to play almost all popular audio and video formats around. It was designed for network playback, so you can stream your multimedia from anywhere in the house or directly from the internet using practically any protocol available. Use your media as-is: Kodi can play CDs and DVDs directly from the disk or image file, almost all popular archive formats from your hard drive. Kodi will scan all of your media and create a personalized library complete with boxcovers, descriptions, and fanart. There are playlist and slideshow functions, a weather forecast feature and many audio visualizations. Once installed, your computer will become a fully functional multimedia jukebox.

Fixes done in this release:

Fix selection after channelgroup switching in PVR guide window
Fix handling of gaps that caused eradic behaviour in EPG grid
Allow backing out of fullscreen pictures by mapping longpress guesture

  Sir Roger Moore, star of 7 James Bond films, dies at 89

Sir Roger Moore, star of 7 James Bond films, dies at 89 Robert Barr and Jill Lawless, The Associated Press 
Published Tuesday, May 23, 2017 9:35AM EDT 
Last Updated Tuesday, May 23, 2017 10:22AM EDT
LONDON -- Roger Moore, the suavely insouciant star of seven James Bond films, has died in Switzerland. He was 89.
The British actor died Tuesday after a short battle with cancer, according to a family statement posted on Moore's official Twitter account.
"We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many times over, across the world, by people who knew him for his films, his television shows and his passionate work for UNICEF, which he considered to be his greatest achievement," the statement said. Moore's relaxed style and sense of whimsy, which relied heavily on the arched eyebrow, seemed a commentary on the essential ridiculousness of the Bond films, in which the handsome British secret agent was as adept at mixing martinis, bedding beautiful women and ordering gourmet meals as he was at disposing of super-villains trying to take over the world.
"To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous," he once said. "I mean, this man is supposed to be a spy and yet, everybody knows he's a spy. Every bartender in the world offers him martinis that are shaken, not stirred. What kind of serious spy is recognized everywhere he goes? It's outrageous. So you have to treat the humour outrageously as well."
While he never eclipsed Sean Connery in the public's eye as the definitive James Bond, Moore did play the role of secret agent 007 in just as many films as Connery did, and he managed to do so while "finding a joke in every situation," according to film critic Rex Reed.
The actor, who came to the role in 1973 after Connery tired of it, had already enjoyed a long career in films and television, albeit with mixed success.
He was remembered warmly by fans of the popular U.S. 1950s-60s TV series "Maverick" as Beauregarde Maverick, the English cousin of the Wild West's Maverick brothers, Bret and Bart. He also starred in the 1959 U.S. series "The Alaskans."
In England, he had a long-running TV hit with "The Saint," playing Simon Templar, the enigmatic action hero who helps put wealthy crooks in jail while absconding with their fortunes. By the time the series, which also aired in the United States, ended in 1969, his partnership with its producers had made him a wealthy man.
Such success followed a Time magazine review of one of his earliest films, 1956's "Diane," in which his performance opposite Lana Turner was dismissed as that of "a lump of English roast beef."
In the 1970s, film critic Vincent Canby would dismiss Moore's acting abilities as having "reduced all human emotions to a series of variations on one gesture, the raising of the right eyebrow."
Born in London, the only child of a policeman, Moore had studied painting before enrolling in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He played a few small roles in theatre and films before his mandatory army duty, then moved to Hollywood in the 1950s. He appeared opposite Elizabeth Taylor in 1954's "The Last Time I Saw Paris" and with Eleanor Parker in "Interrupted Melody" the following year.
In 1970, he became managing director for European production for Faberge's Brut Productions. With the company, he co-starred with Tony Curtis in "The Persuaders!" for British television and was involved in producing "A Touch of Class," which won a best-actress Oscar for Glenda Jackson.
Three years later, he made his first Bond film, "Live and Let Die."
He would make six more, "The Man With the Golden Gun," "The Spy Who Loved Me," "Octopussy," "Moonraker," "For Your Eyes Only and "A View to a Kill" over the next 12 years. And while the Bond of the Ian Fleming novels that the films were based on was generally described as being in his 30s, Moore would stay with the role until he was 57.
He continued to work regularly in films after handing over Bond to Timothy Dalton, but never with the same success. His post-Bond films included such forgettable efforts as "The Quest" with Jean-Claude Van Damme and "Spice World" with the Spice Girls.
In 1991, Moore became a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, having been introduced to the role by the late actress Audrey Hepburn. As Hepburn had, he threw much of his energy into the task.
"I felt small, insignificant and rather ashamed that I had travelled so much making films and ignored what was going on around me," he said in describing how the work had affected him.
In 1996, when his UNICEF job took him to the World Congress Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, he disclosed that he too had been a victim.
"I was molested when I was a child -- not seriously -- but I didn't tell my mother until I was 16, because I felt that it was something to be ashamed of," he told The Associated Press.
He gave no details, but said it was important to encourage young victims not to feel guilty.
"They're being exploited. We have to tell them that," Moore said.
Moore received the Dag Hammarskjold Inspiration Award for his work with UNICEF and was named a commander in France's National Order of Arts and Letters in 2008, an award he said was worth "more than an Oscar." That same year he published an autobiography, "My Word Is My Bond," which included details about his work on the Bond films, his friendship with Hepburn, his encounters with Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor and other stars, and his health struggles -- including a bout with prostate cancer, which he beat.
Moore was divorced three times, from skater Doorn Van Steyn in 1953, English singer Dorothy Squires in 1969 and Italian actress Luisa Mattioli, the mother of his children Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian, in 2000.
He married a fourth time, in 2002, to Swedish socialite Kristina Tholstrup.
Sir Roger Moore's Twitter account shared the news on Tuesday:
With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated. pic.twitter.com/6dhiA6dnVg

  Cyber Security | Complete Course Bundle 2017

Published on May 22, 2017
What is Cyber Security: Computer security, also known as cyber security or IT security, is the protection of computer systems from the theft or damage to their hardware, software or information, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide.[1]
Cyber security includes controlling physical access to the hardware, as well as protecting against harm that may come via network access, data and code injection.[2] Also, due to malpractice by operators, whether intentional, accidental, IT security is susceptible to being tricked into deviating from secure procedures through various methods.[3]
The field is of growing importance due to the increasing reliance on computer systems and the Internet in mostly developed (first-world) societies,[4] wireless networks such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and the growth of "smart" devices, including smartphones, televisions and tiny devices as part of the Internet of Things.

  BUG BEDLAM Tiny Greek island declares state of emergency

Authorities on sleepy Agios Efstratios, an island in the Aegean Sea that is home to 200 people, have struggled to control the pest swarm despite help from university students
By George Sandeman
20th May 2017, 12:07 pm  Updated: 20th May 2017, 1:22 pm A TINY Greek island has declared a state of emergency after being plagued by a swarm of locusts.

Villagers and volunteers have been trying to spray pesticides all over the sleepy port island of Agios Efstratios in an attempt to fix the problem.

The island, home to 200 people, lies in the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey
But they have only had limited success and declared a state of emergency after the rampant pests ate much of the islands vegetation – leaving livestock starving.

Students from a university in Athens have arrived to try and help the 200 residents to get rid of the swarm using bug spray but have been hampered by the Aegean island’s rocky terrain.

The island, which lies between Greece and Turkey, is regularly infested with locusts but locals say this plague is bigger than ever. The students from the Agricultural University of Athens, supervised by scientists, sprayed the locusts with pesticides diflubenzuron and spinosad.

Stella Spanou, a member of the local authority, said: “It’s difficult because of the landscape – they have to go on foot.

“The eco-friendly chemicals are working, they got good results. But there are still many locusts because they couldn’t spray everywhere.”

The lotus swarm, similar to this one from Madagascar, have devoured the island’s vegetation
The students had to get a special government permit for the chemicals as they were not registered for use against locusts specifically.

Ms Spanou revealed that the island has asked the Greek government to declare a state of emergency numerous times before but that it was too “expensive” to do so.

She told the BBC: “They acted this time because the problem is really big. It means we can overcome bureaucratic problems and do things much quicker.”

A state of emergency grants the local authority temporary powers, access to resources and administrative tools to deal with particular problems.

The island has one village where locusts have eaten their way through numerous vegetable gardens.

The island rare flowers and insects and is a part of the EU’s Natura 2000 conservation network but because of this the chemicals cannot be used in the village to get rid of them.

Residents, who rely on agriculture and fishing for income, may get compensation for the plague and local councillors are discussing whether they could be helped with a tax break.
