Bluetooth gets intelligence boost, official colour of 2014, cobalt-60 thieves will die.
The United Nations now has its own drone program. Its first unmanned aircraft took off earlier this week in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Joining some 87 countries with the capability, the organisation says it’s just keeping up with the world’s technological advances.
As the United Nations wrapped up its 68th General Assembly last week, a major piece of news nearly slipped under the radar: Designs for the UN Consolidation Tower, a 36-storey building that will flank the headquarters like an eager little brother, housing almost 3000 employees. But besides offering much-needed emergency overflow space, this new building could end up making the UN more secure as a whole.
This week, as delegates descend on the United Nations for the 68th General Assembly, they just might be spending their free time in a brand-new lounge area. The renovation, officially opening on Wednesday, is an official gift from the Netherlands to the UN, so it’s only appropriate that it was masterminded by two of the most notable Dutch designers of the day — Rem Koolhaas and Hella Jongerius.
Over the past fortnight, the internet has been awash with debate over the future of the internet: the UN, so the stories went, was planning to change the governance of the internet for good. Predictably, the US has point-blank refused to play ball — along with its lapdogs of Canada and the UK — and that stops proceeding dead.
The US believes that North Korea’s plans to launch a satellite into orbit between April 12 and 16 is a veiled long-range missile test that would break a three week-old UN deal for food aid. The Sydney Morning Herald yesterday reported that a US envoy has delivered a warning to Foreign Affairs Minister, Bob Carr. The plans see a North Korean rocket aimed towards South-East Asia and Australia for the first time.
The tech security gurus at the United Nations just got quite a startle: A team of hackers posted about 1000 login credentials for United Nations staff members on PasteBin. Apparently a large number of the passwords were simply blank. Seriously, guys? After LulzSec?
