  2. Japan's cyber-security minister has 'never used a computer' Japan's new cyber-security minister has dumbfounded his country by saying he has never used a computer. Yoshitaka Sakurada made the admission to a committee of lawmakers. "Since I was 25 years old and independent I have instructed my staff and secretaries. I have never used a computer in my life," he said, according to a translation by the Kyodo news agency. The 68-year-old was appointed to his post last month. His duties include overseeing cyber-defence preparations for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. A politician from the opposition Democratic Party, Masato Imai, whose question had prompted the admission, expressed surprise. "I find it unbelievable that someone who is responsible for cyber-security measures has never used a computer," he said. But Mr Sakurada responded that other officials had the necessary experience and he was confident there would not be a problem. However, his struggle to answer a follow-up question about whether USB drives were in use at the country's nuclear power stations caused further concern. The disclosure has been much discussed on social media where the reaction has been a mix of astonishment and hilarity, with some noting that at least it should mean Mr Sakurada would be hard to hack. The definition of useless politicians has been re-defined again !! In great contrast, Pinky can code in C++ !!!

  6. Celebrations as India unveils world’s tallest statue – in pictures The Statue of Unity portrays the independence hero Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Photograph: Amit Dave/Reuters India has inaugurated the world’s tallest statue, a £314m effigy of the independence hero Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel that is nearly twice the height of New York’s Statue of Liberty. The 182-metre Statue of Unity in Gujarat is part of Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist party’s efforts to rebrand what it calls ‘forgotten’ leaders The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, attends the inauguration of the statue, which has been constructed near the Narmada dam in Gujarat The 182-metre (597ft) tall statue cost £314m to construct. Funding came from the federal government, state-run companies and other institutions. It took the construction company Larsen & Toubro 33 months to build Helicopters shower flower petals on the monument. Depicting Patel in traditional attire, with a shawl over his shoulders, the statue used 210,000 cubic metres of cement, 25,000 tonnes of steel and 1,700 tonnes of bronze Coloured balloons float around the statue. Some political commentators have criticised Modi for his expenditure on the statue at a time when the Adivasi indigenous people, who used to farm the land acquired for it, are struggling economically and have protested against it Modi said Patel was a beacon of hope for India and a source of inspiration for ages to come Construction workers are dwarfed by the structure, which will have a museum with 40,000 documents, 2,000 photographs and a research centre dedicated to Patel’s life and work Huge security arrangements were in place for the inauguration after local people threatened protests. Activists said about a dozen of their leaders had been detained

"It's a traditional water park spread over 27-acres," the owner says. "But the twist here is that's it's for adults only. It's a clothing optional park." When asked about the health hazards presented by an adult navigating a waterslide in the nude, he admitted that some things would need to be different than a traditional waterpark. "You ride differently to protect yourself," he said.

The 19-year-old posted images of Chinese tourists sat on a gondola and another Asian woman in a supermarket under the caption “no place like Italy innit.” His images have caused offence online with some people angry at him for taking the women’s photographs without their knowledge and others claiming that the images were racist. His Instagram account is currently set to private. Many people took to Chinese social media site Weibo to complain about the images. One user wrote: “An Englishman in Italy saying it’s not like Italy. Isn’t that a double standard?” Another said: “No doubt discrimination.” Brooklyn Beckham with parents David and Victoria (Getty Images) While one person wrote: “You are not like the son of Beckham.” Some people even posted messages on David Beckham's Weibo account complaining about Brooklyn's actions.

While another said: "I am very disappointed about your family's education." Others have aired their opinions on Twitter. Haley said: "I'm not mad just disappointed." The photos coincide with Golden Week a national holiday that kicked off on October 1 with an increasing number of people choosing to spend their time abroad in Europe. Brooklyn Beckham's representatives have been approached for comment.
  11. French investigate after Interpol chief Meng Hongwei goes missing Wife says she has not heard from her husband since he returned to China last week Meng Hongwei lives in Lyon, where Interpol has its headquarters, with his wife and children. Photograph: Andrew Matthews/PA French police have opened an investigation after the wife of the president of Interpol, Meng Hongwei, said she had not heard from her husband since he travelled home to his native China last week. French police sources and justice officials said Meng’s wife, who lives with him and their children in Lyon, south-east France, where the global organisation for police cooperation is based, reported him missing on Friday. Interpol said it was aware of the reports but it was “a matter for the relevant authorities in France and China”, adding that the day-to-day running of the organisation was the responsibility of its secretary general, Jürgen Stock, rather than the president, who chairs its executive committee. Meng was last seen leaving for China from Interpol’s headquarters on 29 September, a judicial source close to the investigation Agence-France Presse. “He did not disappear in France,” the source added. Meng, 64, was formerly China’s deputy minister of public security, a position which critics say gave him control over the country’s secret police, and has also previously served as director of the coastguard and deputy head of the Chinese state oceanic administration. The first Chinese leader of Interpol, which connects the law enforcement agencies of its 192 member countries, Meng was elected the organisation’s head in November 2016, replacing French police officer Mireille Ballestrazzi, and was due to serve until 2020. The disappearance of high-level Chinese officials is typically seen as a worrying sign. Since taking power in 2012, China’s president, Xi Jinping, has launched a sweeping crackdown, punishing more than a million officials, many accused of corruption. But critics say the drive is merely a way for Xi to take down his political enemies. Communist party members, including Meng, are subject to a separate investigation system outside of China’s state legal system and those suspected of violated party rules can be held without many legal protections. News of Meng’s disappearance was absent from Chinese news outlets. But the appointment as the president of Interpol would normally mean Meng was seen as politically safe. The unusual disappearance highlighted the China’s murky legal system and lack of accountability, observers said. “It’s really terrifying, and underscores that no one – no one – is safe,” Sophie Richardson, the China director for Human Rights Watch, tweeted. Rights organisations such as Amnesty International expressed grave concerns about Meng’s appointment at the time, suggesting China might use it to pursue regime opponents beyond the country’s borders. Amnesty International’s director for East Asia tweeted that Meng’s appointment was “extraordinarily worrying, given China’s longstanding practice of trying to use Interpol to arrest dissidents and refugees abroad”, adding that that the mandate of police in China included protecting the Communist party’s power. Western countries have also been reluctant to sign extradition treaties with China due to concerns from rights groups over the mistreatment of criminal suspects, and have said China can be reluctant to provide proof of suspects’ crimes. Beijing saw Meng’s election as a chance to enlist international help in tracking down alleged economic criminals - including corrupt officials living abroad – who were targeted as part of Xi’s much-publicised anti-graft drive. In 2014, China issued an Interpol “red notice” – the closest thing to an international arrest warrant – for the country’s 100 most-wanted corruption suspects who had fled the country, many of whom have since been returned. Some countries have alleged the campaign, known as Operation Fox Hunt, has led to Chinese law agents operating undercover on their territory without consent.
