2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Dodge 1 of 10 6 Fastest Cars in the World Right Now Editors’ Recommendations Previous Dodge Dodge Dodge A Breakdown of All the Major Types of Car Racing The 2019 Dodge Charger is one of the automotive world’s senior citizens. Dodge’s big sedan got its last major update for the 2015 model year and the design dates back even further than that. But Dodge keeps finding ways to tweak and update the Charger, and that process continues for 2019.The Charger SRT Hellcat returns with a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8. While the Charger’s two-door Challenger SRT Hellcat sibling now makes 717 horsepower and 656 pound-feet of torque, the four-door Hellcat produces the same 707 hp and 650 pound-feet of torque as before.The Charger Hellcat does get new launch assist and line lock features for drag racing, the latter locking the front brakes for easy burnouts. Also on deck are Torque Reserve, which builds up the supercharger’s boost while the car is staged for a quarter-mile run, and the After-Run Chiller, which keeps cooling the supercharger and charge-air cooler after the engine is shut off to get things back to the proper temperature. All of these features are borrowed from the discontinued Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.DodgeThe Charger R/T Scat Pack model also returns for 2019, sitting below the Hellcat in the lineup. The Scat Pack has a 6.4-liter naturally aspirated Hemi V8 making 485 hp and 475 pounds-feet of torque. For 2019, it gets the launch assist and line lock features, plus some styling updates. One rung down from the Scat Pack is the Charger R/T, which uses a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 making 370 hp and 395 pound-feet.All-wheel drive returns for 2019, but only on the base Charger SXT model with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6; all other Chargers are rear-wheel drive. A new V6 Charger GT model sits between the SXT and the V8 Chargers, with a higher level of equipment than other V6 models. The Pentastar V6 makes 292 hp and 260 pound-feet in the rear-wheel-drive SXT, and 300 hp and 264 pound-feet in the all-wheel-drive SXT and GT.The 2019 Dodge Charger hits showrooms later this year. Pricing for the full lineup will be revealed closer to that time. Updates to both the Charger and its Challenger sibling buy the two cars some time, but it’s unclear what Dodge parent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’s long-term plans for them are.A version of this article originally ran on our brother site, Digital Trends.

Log in or register to post comments GDPR 101: What’s a Data Protection Representative? Gary Audin June 28, 2019 If you collect, process, or control EU citizen data, you need a data protection representative. See All in Privacy & Compliance » gdpr.jpg In late November, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) issued draft guidelines to help — at least a bit — entities outside the EU define their responsibilities and obligations under the EU’s General Data Protection Rule (GDPR). Since GDPR took effect in May, enterprises worldwide that held or hold private information belonging to EU citizens (yes, I know that based on the day, who is and isn’t an EU citizen is a bit of a moving target) and visitors (known as “data subjects”) have had to either take prescribed steps to avoid rules violations or simply be nervous that they might be caught non-compliant and forced into massive penalties and subsequent costly remediation.The new guidelines are divided into four dryly-written sections. The new document provides guidance Articles 3(1), 3(2) and 3(3) of the GDPR itself, while the final section adds clarification about non-EU entities’ need to appoint a representative within the EU for those controllers and processors (both terms of art, as I explain in a previous No Jitter post, “Get Ready for GDPR”) that aren’t EU-based. To its credit, however, it does provide real and practical examples throughout.Specifically, Article 3(2) addresses the application of GDPR to entities that don’t have an EU “establishment.” These guidelines emphasize the consideration of whether the targeted individuals are physically within the EU (regardless of nationality, residency, or legal status), and whether the processing relates to offers made to these EU-tied parties within the EU. But what’s most critical in the guidance document is how the collected, stored, or processed data is to be used. The intended use, in fact, will be the triggering event for the imposition of weighty (some might say “burdensome”) GDPR regulation and scrutiny.The critical information in these guidelines for the purpose of non-EU entities concerned about GDPR compliance is this: not all online collection or analysis of personal data of individuals in the EU counts as “monitoring.” Why an entity is collecting information determines whether the controller’s purpose in processing the data triggers more rigorous GDPR compliance.The guidelines offer two critical definitions: “targeting by offering goods and services” and “targeting by monitoring behavior.” The guidance document indicates that a controller or processor with no establishment in the EU must show a clear intention of doing business with EU customers to be considered “targeting” individuals in the EU with goods or services.According to the original guidance, “a controller or processor is ’targeting‘ individuals in the EU by monitoring their behavior(s) if the monitored behavior (i) relates to an individual in the EU and (ii) takes place in the EU.” The EDPB offers several criteria to consider when making this determination (e.g., behavioral advertising, geo-localization activities, online tracking using cookies, CCTV, and so forth). However, the EDPB does not hold that all online collection or analysis of personal data of individuals in the EU counts as “monitoring.” Rather, it is necessary to consider the controller’s purpose in processing the data, and particularly any behavioral analysis or profiling techniques used.One additional element of interest. The last section (Article 3(4)) addresses those circumstances that require the presence of an EU-based representative who isn’t the entity’s data protection officer. For more information on these requirements, visit the guidance document.One final note. The EDPB is soliciting comments on the draft guidelines through Jan. 18, 2019.

Jaguar Land Rover is today celebrating the one millionth Land Rover Discovery manufactured at its Solihull plant in the West Midlands. The company is marking the milestone by setting off on an expedition from the model’s birthplace in Birmingham to Beijing in China, one of its fastest-growing markets – arriving on 23 April at the start of the city’s motor show.The announcement marks a significant achievement for the UK automotive industry, with the Discovery’s global sales up by 16% year on year to a record 45,000 units in 2011, and 83% of the model’s production being exported to 170 different markets around the world. The Solihull plant workforce alone has increased by 20% in the last six months, rising to 6,000 to meet growing international demand for Land Rover products.Alan Volkaerts, Operations Director at JLR’s Solihull plant, said, “Many people are involved in the production of the Discovery, and many have been here for the whole journey, from car number one to car number one million. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank every one of them. They have done a brilliant job, and have displayed great dedication and service. These are the men and women who have made the Discovery the success story it is today.”The Discovery’s expedition route will cover some 8,000 miles across 13 countries in 50 days. A team of four Land Rover Experience experts will tackle both extreme terrain and adverse weather conditions in the one millionth Discovery to roll off the line at Solihull. The journey launches a fundraising project that aims to raise £1 million for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).Last year saw a number of high-profile investment announcements from UK automotive companies, including Jaguar Land Rover. Major UK automotive sector announcements in 2011 amounted to the creation of around 9,900 new jobs, the safeguarding of over 12,000 jobs, investments worth over £4 billion either directly in UK automotive or in automotive supply chain activities, nine new vehicle models and long-term announcements to manufacture four next generation vehicle models in the UK.Click through to download the latest monthly data reports on UK automotive manufacturing.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)

Users have been advised to follow cooking instructions to save energy Credit: Andrew Crowley Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. He pointed out that consumers tended to buy new appliances before their existing ones reach the end of their useful life.“As a result, discarded electrical equipment, such as microwaves, is one of the fastest growing waste streams worldwide,” he added.The lifespan of modern microwaves is nearly seven years shorter than it was almost two decades ago, said the scientists whose findings appear in the journal Science Of The Total Environment.In 2005, 184,000 tonnes of electrical and electronic (EE) waste was produced by discarded microwaves, the study found.However Prof David Reay, Professor of Carbon Management at the University of Edinburgh, said: “To say microwave ovens are ‘as bad for the environment as cars’ is an apples to oranges comparison, because one (the microwaves) is for a full life-cycle assessment and the other (cars) is just their direct emissions from being driven. “Yes, there are a lot of microwaves, and yes they use electricity. But their emissions are dwarfed by those from cars – there are around 30 million cars in the UK alone and these emit way more than all the emission from microwaves in the EU.”Latest data show that passenger cars in the UK emitted 69 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent in 2015. Microwaves in Britain generate as much carbon dioxide as more than one million cars, scientists have concluded as they call on people to use the ovens more efficiently.Scientists arrived at the figure after studying the broad environmental impact of microwaves, taking account of their manufacture, use, and end-of-life disposal.There are around 23 million microwaves in homes across the UK, but despite their huge popularity, little is known about the effect of the devices on the environment, said the researchers.The University of Manchester team found that the ovens generate around 1.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide each year, the equivalent to 1.3 million cars.On average, a single microwave uses 573 kilowatt hours of electricity over a lifetime of eight years, which compares with a seven watt LED light bulb being left on continuously for almost nine years.The study’s authors suggest consumers should use microwaves more efficiently by sticking to cooking instructions rather than just guessing, or always using the highest setting.Lead researcher Dr Alejandro Gallego-Schmid, from the university’s School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science, said: “Given that microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all type of ovens in the EU, it is increasingly important to start addressing their impact on resource use and end-of-life waste.”

He was suggested to be Director of Youth, but was never appointed to that position.Ramjattan had said that should the President for some reason not find favour with Williams, there is Beverley Alert, a former spokesperson for the AFC party, who will be the alternative nominee.The GECOM post would have been a key one for the party. The Commission comprises three members from the Opposition and three from the Government. The Chairman is the seventh person.

Irfaan Ali making his way to court on WednesdayThe Opposition People’s Progressive Party/ Civic (PPP/C) has come out in full support of it’s executive member Irfaan Ali who was on Wednesday hauled from his home in the wee hours of the morning by agents of the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) and subsequently placed before the court where he faced multiple charges in relation to the sale and transfer of lands located in Sparendaam, East Coast Demerara (ECD), commonly known as Pradoville 2.In a statement, the Party said that the trumped up charges against Ali was a clear case of the APNU/AFC Government upping its political vendetta against the political opposition following their defeat at “Local Government Elections (LGE), the No-ConfidenceMotion filed against them and a visionless budget that has plunged them into evendeeper political woes.”Moreover, the Party said that during a recent sitting of the National Assembly, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan informed Ali that he is directing charges to be filed against him and also told Anil Nandlall, another executive member and Presidential hopeful, that he will be convicted.Against that backdrop the PPP/C noted that SOCU is taking political directions from Ministers.According to the PPP/C “We are not oblivious to the fact that these charges are intended to tarnish our leaders in order to impact the choice of the PPP’s presidential candidate for the 2020 General and Regional Elections.”However, the Party noted that any such endeavour would be unsuccessful.See their full statement below:After a thrashing at the Local Government Elections (LGE), the No-ConfidenceMotion filed against them and a visionless budget that has plunged them into evendeeper political woes, the Coalition Government, as promised, has upped thepolitical vendetta against the Opposition.We have seen another round of trumped up charges against People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Executive Member and former Minister of Housing, Irfaan Ali, in relation to the sale of lands at Goedverwagting.These charges have been dangling for over 2 years.Their institution, today, a few days before the national budget debates begins andof course, the No-Confidence Motion is no coincidence. The modus operandi in thearrest of Irfaan Ali, says it all.A vanload of Policemen turned up at his house at 4:00 am, arrested him and tookhim to the Headquarters of the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU).Irfaan Ali attended SOCU’s office on every occasion he was requested to do soover the last year. So, there was no need for the show of power. But, this is thePNC back in form.During a recent sitting of the National Assembly, Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, didinform Irfaan Ali that he is directing charges to be filed against him and told AnilNandlall that he will be convicted. Now in hindsight, we realized our error in nottaking these remarks as serious as we should have done. We would like to highlightthat not only is SOCU taking political directions from Ministers but is being run bya foreign envoy, masquerading as a “consultant”.This “consultant” was seen at daybreak this morning, directing the operations. Another important functionary at SOCU is an officer who was dismissed on numerous occasions for corruption.It is clear that authoritarianism is being taken to another level.We remind of the political threat to our supporters issued by Joseph Harmon at apublic meeting in Sophia and the racist remarks of Volda Lawerence, coupled withthe threat to remove our Councillors from office without an election. The dark daysof dictatorship are returning faster than most expected.We are not oblivious to the fact that these charges are intended to tarnish our leaders in order to impact the choice of the PPP’s presidential candidate for the 2020 General and Regional Elections.This plan will also not succeed.No doubt, greater pressures will be mounted, more charges will be filed and moreagencies of the State will be directed to target our leadership, in order to break ourspirit and intimidate our supporters.However, it will succeed only in making us stronger and even more determined to lead and unite, not only our supporters, but every fair, law abiding and patriotic Guyanese, irrespective of class, race or religion in an indefatigable movement and struggle to remove this corrupt,incompetent and vengeful cabal from Government.

Russian company ElcomSoft is claiming to have cracked the 256-bit hardware encryption Apple uses to protect the data on iOS 4 devices, and is offering software that allows anyone to do it.ElcomSoft is well-known as a corporate security and IT audit company, working with law enforcement agencies, the military, and intelligence agencies to recover data and perform forensics on devices. Its latest work has managed to open up the data stored on any device running iOS 4 by circumventing the hardware encryption chip Apple uses.Rather than relying on a hardware dump from such a device, which will be encrypted and may be missing some of the important data a forensic investigation needs, ElcomSoft can now gain full access to what is stored on a gadget such as the iPhone 4. This includes historical information such as geolocation data, browsing history, call history, text messages and emails, usernames, and passwords. They can even recover data deleted by the user from the device.Until now, anyone running an iOS 4 device has been safe in the knowledge their data was protected and the encryption too strong to be cracked in any usable timeframe. What ElcomSoft did was to create a toolkit that allows for the extraction of the encryption keys from such a device. With those keys it’s possible to decrypt an image taken from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Once that is done a forensic tool such as FTK or Guidance EnCase can be used to look at the data in great detail.Gaining access to the stored data on the device does not take long due to the ElcomSoft tools taking full advantage of the GPU or multiple GPUs in a system. However, you need access to the device in order to decrypt the data, not just an encrypted image from a device. This is because ElcomSoft brute-force the passcode which has to be done on the device, and with something like an iPhone 4 that takes around 40 minutes to achieve.ElcomSoft offer this iOS 4 forensic toolkit to security and law enforcement agencies, but anyone can purchase the software to extract the encrypted data on a device. The application is called the ElcomSoft Phone Password Breaker and costs around $320 for the Professional edition. The speed of decryption on a home PC depends on your setup with Password Breaker supporting up to 32 CPUs and 8 GPUs.Read more at ElcomSoft press release (PDF) and the ElcomSoft blog, via bsn

[Representational image]Wikimedia CommonsVijayawada-based low-cost airline Air Costa has not refunded its flyers after temporarily suspending operations in a surprise move in February. The airline had taken the decision on facing financial issues with its lessors. The company was operating in eight cities — Bengaluru, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Tirupati, Vijayawada and Vishakhapatnam — since October 2013.”In March, I was asked to cancel the tickets as Air Costa suspended its operations. They promised to refund the full amount in 15 days. I have approached the grievance cell of the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) which forwarded the mail to the nodal officer of Air Costa, but there has been no response,” said a passenger, who had booked two tickets from Ahmedabad to Bengaluru, told the Times of India.It is the second airline in India to ground its operation this year after Bengaluru-based Air Pegasus.Air Costa’s website and customer care helpline have also stopped working after their discontinuation of services. This had forced customers to post complaints on online consumer forums.”We have sent several reminders and every time they revert seeking 15-days’ time. It’s more than three months since the cancellation has happened and we still haven’t got Rs 29,820 (to and fro flight charges for 4 persons),” a passenger wrote on a website.According to the president of Air Passengers Association of India, customers who are facing inconveniences from such airlines should come together and approach the court for failing to repay the flyers’ money. An Air Pegasus VT-APB flight parked at Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), dated December 2015.Wikimedia commons”We have limited powers to take action since the airline is not operational however we have already suspended its flying licence,” a DGCA official said.

A police officer stands guard in front of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) head office in Mumbai, India, August 9, 2016.Reuters file [Representational Image]The benchmark BSE Sensex surged over 150 points and the broader NSE Nifty went past the 10,700 mark in opening trade Monday on the back of widespread gains ahead of the Reserve Bank of India’s board meet amid capital inflows by foreign funds.Positive leads from other Asian markets too influenced sentiments here. The 30-share index was trading 190.81 points, or 0.54 per cent, higher at 35,647.61 points.Sectoral indices, led by realty, metal, auto, IT indices and bankex, advanced up to 1.44 per cent. The barometer had gained 315.17 points in the previous two sessions.Similarly, the NSE Nifty was up 43.10 points, or 0.40 per cent, at 10,725.30 points. Investors are awaiting cues from the Reserve Bank of India’s board meet later in the day.Finance Ministry nominees and some independent directors are expected to take on Governor Urjit Patel and his team later in the day over issues ranging from micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) credit to the central bank’s reserves, though both sides are in favour of reaching a common ground.Brokers said besides capital inflows from foreign funds, positive cues from other Asian markets, tracking weekend gains at Wall Street after US President Donald Trump said that he may not impose more tariffs on Chinese goods after Beijing sent a list of measures it was willing to take resolve trade tensions, buoyed the sentiment.Major gainers were Yes Bank, Infosys, M&M, Hero MotoCorp, RIL, HDFC Bank, HDFC, Sun Pharma, Maruti Suzuki, Tata Steel, Wipro, L&T, Vedanta, TCS, ICICI Bank, Coal India, ITC, PowerGrid, HUL and Bajaj Auto, gaining up to 4.29 per cent.Top losers included Bharti Airtel, Axis Bank, Wipro, Asian Paints, ICICI Bank and Adani Ports, falling up to 1.30 per cent.Meanwhile, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) bought shares worth Rs 844.82 crore on Friday, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) sold shares worth Rs 372.24 crore, provisional data showed.Elsewhere in Asia, Japan’s Nikkei rose 0.50 per cent, Korea’s KOSPI gained 0.21 per cent, Shanghai Composite Index up 0.22 per cent and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng edged higher by 0.24 per cent.The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 0.49 per cent higher on Friday.-PTI

Share Archaeologists recently discovered a historic cemetery in Fort Bend County, reopening an often forgotten chapter in Texas history: How the state forced mostly black prisoners to work in plantations and sugar cane fields after the Civil War, in what many consider legalized slavery.Now there’s a growing effort to preserve that history.For years, activist and former prison guard Reginald Moore has spoken out at public meetings in Fort Bend County, just southwest of Houston, and sent letters to historical groups. He’s asked officials and other residents to remember the state prisoners who died laboring. At one Sugar Land City Council meeting in 2013, Moore pushed for a museum in their honor.“The people deserve to know and deserve to be recognized for these inmates — for the atrocities that happened. The city, the state and the county need to give an apology,” Moore said.Moore’s public testimony is now being archived at Rice University — along with his correspondence, including official letters and handwritten notes on the backs of envelopes and other documents not publicly available.Amanda Focke, who is the assistant head of special collections at the Woodson Research Center at Rice’s Fondren Library, said that the library started the archive in 2015 after Moore donated some of his personal materials.“He spent so many years not being heard in an official way and not having any kind of action taken based on what he’s talking about, that he’s just a wall of words, telling you about this topic,” Focke said. “He’s immensely grateful for the help of all his allies and he’s just such a gracious man. The first thing out of his mouth when he talks to you is ‘Thank you for everything you’ve done,’ and then he goes on to talk about what he would like you to do next.’” To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: The archive continues to grow as Moore continues his advocacy.Rice professor Caleb McDaniel, who teaches about the history of slavery and abolitionism in the nineteenth-century United States, said that Moore’s work and the history of convict leasing still resonates today as U.S. society wrestles with the privatization of prison by many states and mass incarceration that some scholars describe a new Jim Crow system.“A lot of people don’t know about this history, so future historians will be interested to learn how did greater awareness of this history come about and what did it take?” McDaniel said. Laura IsenseeSince 2015, Rice University archivists have been collecting and cataloging Reginald Moore’s work to preserve the history of convict leasing in Sugar Land.“Future generations of historians will be greatly interested in letters like this that document the conflict over the past that occurred and how people thought about the past struggled to get their perspectives on the past acknowledged and recognized,” McDaniel added.
