US Supreme Court upholds mobile location privacy

first_imgHome US Supreme Court upholds mobile location privacy Author Law enforcement officials cannot track people’s whereabouts using mobile phone location records without first obtaining legal authorisation, the US Supreme Court decided.In a legal case (Timothy Ivory Carpenter versus the United States), the government argued location information kept by mobile operators was not covered by the country’s Fourth Amendment, which protects citizens against unreasonable search and seizure, because the data was held by third parties.But the court disagreed, noting in its ruling the constitutional protections do apply “given the unique nature of cell phone location records”, albeit by a slender vote of five for versus four against by the panel of nine judges.It concluded allowing government free reign to access cell site records without demonstrating the “probable cause” required for a warrant violates the public’s reasonable expectation of privacy.“When the government tracks the location of a cell phone it achieves near perfect surveillance, as if it had attached an ankle monitor to the phone’s user…Only the few without cell phones could escape this tireless and absolute surveillance.”However, the court stressed the ruling does not apply to conventional surveillance tools, such as security cameras, nor does it address “other business records that might incidentally reveal location information”.The case was closely watched by the industry as the latest in a series of digital privacy decisions from the court.In 2014, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled law enforcement officials need a warrant to search a person’s mobile device. data privacyPrivacyUS Supreme Court Google follows Apple with app privacy policy Diana Goovaerts Previous ArticleBullitt engaged for BlackBerry SecureNext ArticleAT&T closes in on service revenue growth China targets 33 apps for illegal data collection Apple hit with privacy complaint in France AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 22 JUN 2018 Tags Related Diana is Mobile World Live’s US Editor, reporting on infrastructure and spectrum rollouts, regulatory issues, and other carrier news from the US market.

Jake: Players may want to return to SA now

first_img Newly appointed Vodacom Bulls director of rugby Jake White says these extraordinary times could present an opportunity for overseas-based players to return to South Africa permanently.White has recently stepped into the role at the helm of the Pretoria-based franchise, and has already begun planning the way forward for the former three-time Vodacom Super Rugby champions.It has been reported that White is already looking to lure several overseas-based players to the Bulls in his recruitment drive. Locks Gerbrant Grobler (Gloucester, England), Jacques du Plessis (Montpellier, France) and Jason Jenkins (Verblitz, Japan) are some of the names that have been mentioned.READ: Bulls clarify White’s long-term roleTalking with Jacaranda FM‘s Elma Smit, White explained that he felt overseas players at present may well be seeing the value of being based in South Africa, particularly with the added lure of the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour.‘It’s a great opportunity for players who want to return to South Africa. With this coronavirus pandemic, players may be feeling the loneliness from being far away from families, and they may be reconsidering being on the other side of the world. It could be an opportunity to renegotiate with those players before they re-sign with overseas teams, so I am hard at work looking at if there are some who want to come back.‘There is also the carrot to dangle with the British & Irish Lions series next year, and I’m sure there are plenty who would want to be involved in that series, whether that be playing for their franchises against the Lions or for the Springboks.’As it is, in the English Premiership there have been 25% cuts imposed across the league due to the financial impact of the coronavirus.COLUMN: Jake White a perfect fit for battling BullsPhoto: Getty Images Jake: Players may want to return to SA now ‘ AlphaCuteOprah’s New House Cost $90 Million, And This Is What It Looks LikeAlphaCute|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Post by SA Rugby magazine  2184  203 GoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo World Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVMaverick coach Eddie Jones has named his Test dream team made up of players he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?

Connacht win away in Italy

first_imgBenetton Rugby 19 Connacht 22 A second-half revival from Connacht  saw us halt Benetton in their tracks and bring their five-game winning run to a close. With three tries apiece there was never much between the two sides but a yellow card for Tomasso Iannone with ten minutes to play proved the catalyst for Connacht’s win. Tito Tebaldi had given Benetton the lead late in the first half but Finlay Bealham hit back minutes after the break. Monty Ioane extended Benetton’s lead but Jarrad Butler responded almost immediately for Connacht, with Jack Carty then kicking the penalty after Iannone’s yellow and Eoin Griffin’s score meaning Marco Fuser’s effort with the clock in the red was only good enough for a bonus point. After early Connacht pressure the home side worked their way back into the game and, but for a fine tackle from Matt Healy in the 20th minute, Luca Sperandio would have gone in at the right corner for the opening score of the game. The remainder was a half characterised by turnovers and stoppages for injuries, punctuated by a blitzing run from Ioane into the Connacht half. And after several phases of play a Benetton lineout from the left set up a maul from which scrum-half Tebaldi darted over from five yards – suffering a knock to the leg in the process.Tebaldi limped off after Marty Banks kicked the conversion the half ended with the home side seven to the good. The second half began with Connacht pressure and a kick to the corner set up a lineout drive that saw Bealham bundle over for the score – Carty missing the conversion and the chance to level the scores with 35 minutes to play. With the half looking to be heading the same way as the first, Banks put in a cross-field kick from his own half, which Ioane collected to run 60 yards down the left touchline for a fine score – Banks missing the tough conversion on the hour mark. That score sparked Connacht into life and a smart offload from Cian Kelleher to Butler, for the flanker to drive home from just inside the Benetton 22 – Carty adding the extras to draw level and set up a tense final 15 minutes. And with ten minutes to play the decisive moment came with Iannone adjudged to have performed a tip tackle on Tom Farrell, seeing him spend the rest of the match in the bin. Carty knocked over a penalty and with six minutes to play a Healy break saw him offload to Caolin Blade, before the ball fell to Griffin for the centre to score the winning try – Carty making sure of the points with the conversion. Connacht face a trip to South Africa to take on the Cheetahs next Saturday night.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more


C-K council ‘strips’ number of adult entertainment parlours allowed

first_imgChatham-Kent council narrowly decided Monday in a 9-8 vote to only allow a single strip club to operate in the municipality at any time.The municipality previously provided licences to three adult entertainment parlours, but two of them – JR’s in Chatham and Kent Tavern in Wallaceburg – have since closed their doors. Spanky’s in Chatham will now hold the only licence for this type of business.Clerk Judy Smith said the municipality provided the recommendation as a way of “cleaning up the bylaw” to reflect the one remaining adult business in Chatham-Kent.“There are establishments like this that most municipalities try to limit the numbers,” added John Norton, general manager of community development for the municipality.“When a business disappears, it’s an opportunity for council to consider how many of that type of business they wish in their community.Councillors Mark Authier, Mike Bondy, Carmen McGregor, Anthony Ceccacci, Marjorie Crew, Joe Faas, Aaron Hall, John Wright and Mayor Darrin Canniff voted in favour of the recommendation.Against it were Brock McGregor, Melissa Harrigan, Karen Kirkwood-Whyte, Clare Latimer, Jamie McGrail, Steve Pinsonneault, Doug Sulman and Trevor Thompson.“It’s interesting how regulation around businesses that might have what I will call ‘ethics’ involved in them seem to go unquestioned, but then (for) other business regulations we put forward, we would really comment if it’s government’s role to put those regulations in,” said Harrigan.The West Kent councillor said there might have been “good intent” in trying to limit this type of business, but it may end up doing a “disservice” to workers in this industry.“In actuality, what that can often lead to is the result of unlicensed business taking place in an unregulated area and then there’s less ability for open conversation and control and potentially the safety of people who are working in adult entertainment establishments,” Harrigan said.Pinsonneault said he had a problem with the recommendation because he wants to support free enterprise, “whether you think the business is appropriate or not in the community.”Thompson asked whether or not this decision would make the remaining licence more valuable.“I wouldn’t want to speculate on what the value of licences is in the marketplace,” responded Norton.Thompson then said he had made his point.Authier noted council had previously decided to allow only six licences for payday lending businesses.“This is the same thing, basically, as far as I’m concerned – putting a limit on licences,” he said.last_img read more
