South Korean investigators are blaming North Korea for a series of hacking attacks on Seoul’s nuclear power operator.
South Korea says Pyongyang is behind cyber attacks on Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power that took place in December. In December and again last week, hackers published on Twitter blueprint and test data believed to belong to the company.
The South Korean government said Tuesday the codes used to hack into the nuclear plant are the same codes used by North Korean hackers.
The nuclear hackers, using protocols based in China, sent some 6,000 “phishing” emails to 3,571 employees of the nuclear company.
The company said in December that it had been hacked, but said only non-critical data was taken.
Companies that successfully use social media give their audiences valuable content and let their fans be the voice of the brand, the founder and CEO of TheAudience told CNBC on Monday.
What they don’t do is market to them and tell them what’s cool, Oliver Luckett said in a “Squawk Box” interview.
“You have to provide value to the system. You’ve got to provide decent content. You can’t just be marketing on these platforms,” said Luckett, whose company creates and post content for brands and Internet influencers.
The former Def Jam artist made his CNN debut to debate the controversial n-word and here are five reasons he blew. For some reason, mainstream news outlets love to blame Hip Hop whenever racist whites get caught using the N-word. It’s quite easy considering how widespread rap has become and how the music at large has influenced pop culture. This is why everyone from Talib Kweli to 2 Chainz are using their rather large platforms to tackle issues on race. However, for every moment of brilliance that pushes Hip Hop forward, there are events unfortunately degrading the movement. Case in point, Atlanta’s own Trinidad James.
Controversial CNN pundit Don Lemon welcomed the former Def Jam artist to debate the usage of the N-Word. This comes after another video from University of Oklahoma’s SAE chapter emerged with the fraternity’s dorm mother Beauton Gilbow was caught mouthing words to James’ sole hit, “All Gold Everything.” Of course, this comes after the organization was caught singing a racist chant and promptly removed from campus.
Unlike 2 Chainz and Talib Kweli, Lemon welcomed James enough to call him a potential co-anchor which seemed like a bad omen from the start. By the time the debate including Marc Lamont Hill and Ben Ferguson came to an end, the man who once was bold enough to say Atlanta ran New York Hip Hop sounded unintelligible despite making a few good points. Therefore, the conversation regarding race and usage of the N-Word went absolutely no-where.
With that in mind, allow DX to break down exactly what Romey Rome’s illegitimate child did wrong during his time at CNN.
His Appearance Was Too Distracting
Between the old feathered newsroom fedora, silky hair, bright red jacket and gold chains, it was hard to take James’ weak arguments seriously. Lemon, Ferguson and Hill were all dressed ready to have a serious discussion. James is still dressing like it’s 2012 and “All Gold Everything” is still hot. Take notice on this small but helpful advice, if he wants to be taken seriously on the world stage, the best thing for him to do is start looking appropriate.
He Called Ben Ferguson His Nigga
What began as an honest way of displaying how the N-word transformed from negative connotation for a group of people to a term of endearment, things went downhill when he referred to Ben Ferguson as his nigga. This is the same guy who openingly endorsed racial profiling among others at one point. Ferguson is a social conservative who is against everything Hip Hop stands for and therefore, isn’t a friend of the culture.
Flawed Logic That Elimination Of The Word In Rap Will Stop Usage
Looks like Joe Scarborough and James have solved the problem in regards to the N-word. If rappers cease usage of the word, the rest of the world will follow. The problem with that logic is that the original SAE chant was apart of the fraternity’s long honored traditions going as far back as the old confederacy. The 77-year-old Gilbow thought it was just humourous for someone like her to sing along to James’ sole hit. Like Hill mentioned, the usage of the N-word existed long before Hip Hop and as long as racist institutions exist, it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Says There’s No Racism In Trinidad
Maybe things have changed within the last couple of years but European colonization in Trinidad via slavery has left some scars. That includes opposition between descendants of African slaves and Indians that was orchestrated by white settlers. Obviously, an intellectual for the moment like James wouldn’t even care to understand that institutionalized racism exist in his homeland as well.
Attempting To Stretch His Long Gone 15 Minutes
To be completely honest, if Gilbow wasn’t caught on camera reciting the hook of “All Gold Everything,” James would have continued his long going descent into irrelevance. Since his gold selling single, the Atlanta native has failed to deliver a follow-up worth a listen. Mr. Nicholas Williams decided to capitalize on a serious issue by haphazardly blending ignorance with respectable politics. Bottom line, not only did James make himself look foolish, it didn’t help his lackluster career not one bit.
