12 hurt as car strikes school marching band at Mardi Gras parade

GULF SHORES, Ala. — Twelve Alabama students were injured Tuesday when a Ford Expedition plowed into a marching band ahead of it in a Mardi Gras parade.
Three students are in critical condition but stable, Gulf Shores city spokesman Grant Brown said. The victims’ ages range from 12 to 17.
Brown said a 73-year-old man was driving the SUV, which was in the parade and accelerated before it hit the Gulf Shores High School marching band. It was not immediately clear why the driver accelerated, but authorities do not believe the crash was intentional.
“Every indication is that it was a tragic accident,” police Chief Ed Delmore said.
Six of those injured are middle school students; six are high school students, Baldwin County Public Schools said in a statement.
As the children were treated and rushed to ambulances, dented musical instruments and debris were scattered on the street. Earlier authorities said four people were in critical condition; they didn’t give a reason for the change in..

February 28, 2017
By Dustin Volz and Warren Strobel
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The National Security Agency risks a brain-drain of hackers and cyber spies due to a tumultuous reorganization and worries about the acrimonious relationship between the intelligence community and President Donald Trump, according to current and former NSA officials and cybersecurity industry sources.
Half-a-dozen cybersecurity executives told Reuters they had witnessed a marked increase in the number of U.S. intelligence officers and government contractors seeking employment in the private sector since Trump took office on Jan. 20.
One of the executives, who would speak only on condition of anonymity, said he was stunned by the caliber of the would-be recruits. They are coming from a variety of government intelligence and law enforcement agencies, multiple executives said, and their interest stems in part from concerns about the direction of U.S intelligence agencies under Trump.

By Jeffrey Dastin
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Some web surfers on Tuesday experienced glitches on media outlets and other sites whose data is hosted by Inc’s popular cloud business, which Amazon said suffered a technical disruption.
The technology company’s simple storage service, known as Amazon S3, experienced “high error rates” that rippled throughout its various cloud services, Amazon said in an online posting. As of early afternoon Pacific Time, the company said several features had fully recovered, and it was working to return to normal operations.
The disruption had an immediate impact, underscoring the increasing dependency of companies on the cloud for cheap and secure data storage. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s biggest cloud business.

More than 40 networks including Walt Disney Co’s ESPN will be offered, as well as YouTube’s original series starring creators from the platform, executives said.
YouTube’s offering will compete with Dish Network Corp’s Sling TV, AT&T’s DirecTV Now and Sony Corp’s PlayStation Vue. All are services designed to attract viewers who dropped traditional pay TV packages or never signed up in the first place.

Shining Path founder Guzman faces second life sentence in Peru

February 28, 2017
LIMA (Reuters) – Prosecutors in Peru asked a federal judge on Tuesday to hand down a life sentence to Abimael Guzman, the founder of the Maoist-inspired rebel group the Shining Path, for allegedly ordering a bombing in Lima that killed 25 people in 1992.
Guzman is already serving a life sentence for having led the Shining Path’s attempt to overthrow the state.
The 1992 car-bomb attack on Tarata Street in the upscale district of Miraflores was part of the Shining Path’s bid to take its militancy to the capital from rural Peru and helped build support for a crackdown on suspected rebels by former President Alberto Fujimori.
At the start of a public trial on the bombing on Tuesday, Guzman, now gray-haired and bearded at 82, spoke to the court only to request medical care, a sharp contrast to his shouted praise for communism at a trial more than a decade ago, when he was convicted of terrorism and sentenced to life in prison.
Guzman’s attorney Alfredo Crespo said tha..
