Shocked community asked to rally together in hunt for raiders

first_imgMalin locals are being called on to put their thinking caps on as the hunt for four armed raiders continues.The community was left in shock after a gang of masked men armed with crowbars broke into the home of prominent businessman and GAA club director John Byrne on Saturday night.The raiders tied up two of John’s adult sons as they searched the house for cash. A substantial amount of money was taken, some of which was later recovered by gardaí. “Everybody is shocked,” said local county councillor Martin McDermott.“The Byrne family would be heavily involved in everything that goes on in the community. What makes it worse is to think that someone could come in and tie up your sons.“This happened at 7 in the evening. These boys were brazen to do such a thing.“It’s put the fear on people and on older people living in rural communities,” Cllr McDermott said. Cllr McDermott commended Gardaí and the local community for their response to the attack.“Gardaí were there very quickly and everyone rallied behind the family. And hopefully they can do the same to catch these men. If everybody can put their thinking caps on to that day or the days before, and if they noticed anything, then all this information could be put together,” Cllr McDermott said.The attack occurred at Beugh, on the main road from Glengad to Malin. The masked men made their getaway on foot after the raid.Cllr McDermott said that it is possible that somebody may have seen something on this busy road that could be vitally important to the investigation.“We’re in a rural area, you notice if something or somebody strange is about,” he said. “If four or five people came forward with information, no matter how small, then it could be vital.”Gardaí can be contacted at Buncrana Garda Station on (074) 932 0540 or the Garda Confidential Line: 1800 666 111Shocked community asked to rally together in hunt for raiders was last modified: October 29th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Broadband Speeds Increase Around the World – But Not in the U.S.

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… IP Addresses: U.S. Leads but China is Catching UpAkamai’s quarterly report also notes that the number of unique IP addresses increased by about 4.5% globally since the second quarter of 2009. The U.S. is still home to the largest number of unique IP addresses, but China is catching up quickly. In total, the U.S. was home to just over 119 million unique IP addresses in Q3 2009. With 49 million IP addresses, China is currently a distant second, but the number of Chinese IP addresses increased by 30% compared to Q2 2009, while U.S. addresses on increased by 9%.Attack TrafficAkamai also looked at where most of the traffic from botnets and other attack traffic originated from. Russia (13%) is currently the source of most of this traffic, followed by Brazil (8.6%) and the U.S. (6.9%). On a positive note, it’s important to note that attack traffic from the U.S. declined from 15% compared to Q2 2009. Attack traffic from China declined even more. In Q2 2009, 31% of all of this traffic originated in China. Now, China is only responsible for about 6.5% of all attack traffic. Most of these attacks (78%) target port 445. On Windows systems, port 445 handles local printer and file sharing traffic. Looking at data from the third quarter of 2009, content delivery network Akamai just announced that the average broadband speed in the U.S. declined by 2.4% in the third quarter of 2009 compared to the same quarter in 2008.In the U.S., Delaware currently leads with 7.2 Mbps, though it remains far behind South Korea, where the average speed is almost 15 Mpbs. Currently, the U.S. is in 18th place, far behind Japan, Hong Kong, Romania and Sweden. The average U.S. broadband speed is currently 3.9 Mbps. If you are looking for a fast Internet connection in the U.S., Sandy, UT and Iowa City currently offer the fastest connections. Delaware (7.2 Mbps), New Hampshire (5.9 Mbps) and Massachusetts (5.9 Mbps) are the top 3 states on Akamai’s list. The states with the fastest average broadband speeds can all be found on the East Coast. It is interesting to speculate why average speed in the U.S. declined over the last year. Chances are that a lot of people downsized their connections during the economic downturn.
