Retired Air Force sergeant to host Super Bowl radio show

first_imgHOUSTON (AP) — Bernard Edwards spent the past 16 years as an Air Force surgical operations manager, leading and training more than 300 medics and caregivers and aiding surgeons serving in the military.The retired technical sergeant is on Radio Row during Super Bowl week getting a chance to host a one-hour talk show on SiriusXM’s special channel dedicated to the NFL championship game.“I am launching a career in public speaking, which encompasses all different forms of media,” Edwards said as he prepared for his Wednesday program on Super Bowl LI Radio, SiriusXM 134.“In broadcasting there are so many lanes and various forms of social media, TV and radio and podcasts. I am primarily interested in sports when it comes to broadcasting. For public speaking, I like to do keynotes on leadership, diversity, personal development, business.“I’ve never been on radio on this level, though I have been on (local) public radio. I also did a channel for veterans and those on active duty and did some various interviews on AFN (Armed Force Network).”Edwards, 36, grew up in Europe in a military family and lettered in football, basketball, and track at Bitburg American High School.“I was blessed to make the All-Europe teams and even played basketball for a local German team for one season instead of my high school, so that I could experience wrestling for my high school. You couldn’t play two sports for the school in one season,” he explains.“While serving in the Air Force, I played defensive back for the Armed Services Football Team out of Walter Reed (Military Medical Center) in Maryland for two years.”He also took up mixed martial arts and trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and muay thai, competing in the Army Combatives tournaments. Edwards has traveled to Thailand and Bali to train in MMA.Edwards has strong interest in broadcasting now that he is out of the armed services. So for an hour Wednesday, FedEx, the USO and SiriusXM are giving him the opportunity to talk sports — to America.He’ll get off to a good start with such guests as Drew Brees, Le’Veon Bell and David Johnson for his debut.“That’s even more awesome,” he said. “Just to get to speak to one of those is a great opportunity. To speak to all three, awesome. I’m excited they are taking the opportunity to talk to a veteran and honored to represent my fellow Americans in uniform.“I will let it flow a lot. But I have do have some questions I think will be interesting to them related to veterans and football.”He plans to ask the three star players about transitions. With Brees being closer to the end of his career than the youngsters Bell and Johnson, Edwards will ask the Saints quarterback about similarities between veterans coming out of the military to take on a completely new life, and players who must do the same at some point.“What are they doing as players to prepare, and what struggles they have seen from more senior players who retired and returned to what you would call a more normal life,” said Edwards, who retired from the Air Force in 2014. “For a pro athlete it cannot be easy to go back to a normal life.”FedEx and the USO have a role in that transition, Edwards explained. FedEx sponsors weekly and annual NFL awards, and the company will donate $50,000 to the USO in the names of the winners of the FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Year, $100,000 in total. FedEx also donated $2,000 for its weekly award winners.Those donations will be used to support USO programs that keep service members connected to family, home and country as they transition from military to civilian life.Edwards hopes his transition leads to more involvement in broadcasting and public speaking.One thing he’s pretty sure of: He won’t be nervous hosting a program heard by millions on satellite radio, nor while interviewing the likes of Brees, Bell and Johnson.“I have heard it said that more humans fear public speaking than they do death,” he said. “I take my role in the military as having changed that for me.”___For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL,HOUSTON (AP) — Bernard Edwards spent the past 16 years as an Air Force surgical operations manager, leading and training more than 300 medics and caregivers and aiding surgeons serving in the military.The retired technical sergeant is on Radio Row during Super Bowl week getting a chance to host a one-hour talk show on SiriusXM’s special channel dedicated to the NFL championship game.“I am launching a career in public speaking, which encompasses all different forms of media,” Edwards said as he prepared for his Wednesday program on Super Bowl LI Radio, SiriusXM 134.“In broadcasting there are so many lanes and various forms of social media, TV and radio and podcasts.

The South Africa you want to live in

first_img13 June 2008The International Marketing Council (IMC), custodian of Brand South Africa, is embarking on a journey with South Africans to begin collectively to create a South Africa that we all want.The first phase of the journey started on 12 June with the launch of the “South Africa you want to live in” campaign, which asks South Africans to describe the country they want to live in.Over the next two weeks, South Africans can share their visions, views or comments on the country they would like to live in by:Phoning 083 900 WITHU (9484)SMS-ing WITH U to 32310Logging on to www.itstartswithyou.co.zaCommunity radio stations are also being roped in to allow for toll-free submissions.The IMC will then collate the feedback, divide it into different categories, and channel it back to the nation through an extended advertising campaign – with the aim of inspiring South Africans to take action to make their vision a reality.IMC acting CEO Moeketsi Mosola said in a statement this week that the campaign was about “social conversations, difficult or easy. This is the beginning of a journey for the country”.The jouney started, Mosola said, with each of us making a small change in our lives. “We should all not buy stolen goods, not bribe policemen, we should vote, pay taxes, be good hosts when tourists come to our country – so that we can all begin to be the drivers of change.”IMC marketing manager Sophie Masipa said the campaign aimed to get South Africans to “take a collective view around what we see as a South Africa we want to live in”, and to see that “achieving this reality will mean each one of us must participate.“It is also to say that no matter how insignificant you think you or your actions may be, every little bit makes a difference, and if we can mobilise the collective, we can make a substantial difference.”The campaign feeds into the broader Movement for Good, a countrywide network of organisations that have come together to inspire South Africans to become “active citizens for good”. South Africans can join the movement by SMS-ing “Good” and their name to 32197, or by logging on to www.itstartswithyou.co.za.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

CyberSecurity: Businesses Fight Back Against Attacks

first_imgBusinesses are fighting a cyberwar. Cybercrime damages totaled $3 trillion in 2015 and are expected to grow to $6 trillion by 2021, according to a report by Cyber Security Ventures. That’s a massive amount of money. To fend off possible losses, businesses are ramping up on cybersecurity defenses and expected to spend an aggregate of over $1 trillion from 2017 to 2012.Steve Morgan, Editor-In-Chief at Cyber Security Ventures, said that “Cybercriminal activity is one of the biggest challenges that humanity will face in the next two decades.”Ginni Rometty, IBM’s chairman, president and CEO, said that “cybercrime is the greatest threat to every company in the world.”Robert Herjavec, CEO and founder of the Herjavec Group, said that “there is no effective law enforcement for financial cybercrime today. Organizations need to increase their defenses and become more resilient because there is no end state in sight for this growing cybercrime epidemic. So long as there is a way for cybercriminals to get paid, with limited risk, attacks will continue. The challenge remains that large enterprises aren’t nearly as agile as their attackers.”last_img read more

Developer of Android App That Transmits Users’ Voice Mail Passwords Denies Malicious Intent

It now appears that we were mistaken. In an interview with Android Tapp Jackeey Wu, the developer of the wallpaper app in question, denied malicious intent. He said he was gathering device information to take advantage of favoriting features in Android.In my applications I collected some device data, not user data.I collected the screen size to return more suitable wallpaper for the phone. More and More users emailed me telling that they love my wallpaper apps so much, because that even “Background” can’t well suited the phone’s screen.I also collected device id,phone number and subscriber id, it has no relationship with user data. There are few apps in Android market has the favorites feature. Many users suggest that I should provide the feature so I use the these to identify the device, so they can favorite the wallpapers more conveniently, and resume his favorites after system resetting or changing the phone.In a follow-up on its blog, Lookout, the security company that originally reported that the wallpaper apps were transmitting data, notes that the app did disclose that it was accessing phone data. However, not every app that accesses data actually transmits it off the device, and Wu’s apps did not disclose that phone information would be collected (enterprises most certainly are not going to want employees voice mail passwords transmitted to third parties, regardless of that third party’s intentions). Whether Wu himself knew he’d be collecting passwords along with users’ phone numbers, we do not know. We have not been able to find a way to contact Wu.We will update with additional information as it becomes available.center_img IT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more
