    (CNN)On March 8 -- International Women's Day -- CNN published the findings of an exclusive poll which revealed that women in the G7 countries (US, UK, Japan, Canada, France, Italy and Germany) felt less supported by their leaders than men did; their impressions of their government's response to Covid-19 were significantly worse than men's; they were more likely than men to perceive the gendered impacts of the pandemic and, inflation and financial issues were ranked as their foremost present-day concern in six of the seven countries. CNN's findings align with other research that has been conducted over the past couple of years that shows that women have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. But why have women been so adversely affected? What is it about the societies in which they live and their place in those societies that made them particularly vulnerable? Across the five areas where women in the G7 said they had experienced the most disruption during the pandemic -- future planning, community (their relationships with close family and friends), mental health, access to healthcare and their financial...

    APPLE have issued an urgent warning to iPhone users after uncovering the biggest hack in history which went undetected for FIVE years. An Israeli cyberarms firm NSO Group developed a hack by the name of Pegasus that has infiltrated devices for nearly half a decade, potentially exposing millions of users' personal information. 1The Pegasus spyware has been hacking iPhone users around the world for five yearsCredit: AP:Associated Press Apple has announced it will be alerting users who have fallen victim to the colossal cyber attack. Pegasus was created in 2016 and auctioned off to the highest bidder - which included governments and nation-states. The powerful software has the ability to infect both iPhone and Android devices so hackers can extract messages, photos and emails, record calls and secretly activate microphones and cameras. After being exposed by security researchers, it was revealed that Pegasus had been attempted or successfully installed on the phones of over 50,000 people. This included 10 prime ministers, three presidents and a king, as well as activists, rights workers, journalists and businesspeople - rather than terrorists...
    zimmytws | iStock | Getty Images A new report released by the Social Security Administration on Tuesday reveals new estimates of just how much the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the program's already ailing trust funds. The results show the funds from which the program pays benefits have been "significantly affected" by both the pandemic and the ensuing recession of 2020. Now, the fund that pays retirement and survivor benefits — known as the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund — will be able to pay full benefits as scheduled only until 2033. That is one year earlier than last year's projections. At that time, the program will only be able to pay 76% of those scheduled benefits. The Disability Insurance Trust Fund, meanwhile, will be able to pay benefits until 2057 – eight years sooner than last year's estimates. At that time, Social Security will be able to pay 91% of those benefits. Combined, both trust funds are estimated to be able to pay full benefits as scheduled until 2034, one year earlier than last year's projections, at which point...

    Why are companies more vulnerable to ransomware? 6:07 (CNN Business) – The list of high-profile ransomware attacks grows longer and more alarming by the week, affecting everything from pipelines and meat supplies to ferries. Businesses and agencies that are affected must fight to protect their systems and make the difficult decision of whether they should pay hackers to remove the damage. Faced with this situation, affected companies could rush to communicate with their information technology (IT) teams, the police, their crisis management public relations teams, lawyers and law enforcement. But often one of the first calls is to your insurance provider. Businesses often purchase specific cyber insurance plans to help protect their systems and cover any loss from a cyber attack. And ransomware, which allows hackers to take over computer systems (or even physical infrastructure) and fetch million-dollar fees to unlock them, has only fueled demand for that insurance. But this lifeline can also be more difficult for businesses to access due to rising costs, stricter requirements from insurers, and increased government scrutiny when foreign hackers are involved. Growing...
    Some 200 Americans posted around the world, including a baby, have reported symptoms of Havana Syndrome.   The mysterious condition was first reported in the fall of 2016 when a staffer at the U.S. embassy in Cuba suffered headaches, hearing loss, memory issues and other symptoms. Since then a steady stream of Americans on every continent except Antarctica have suffered the same strange symptoms - the most recent being reported in Vienna.  On Monday, the Biden Administration announced it had been looking into what the government suspects were 'directed' radio frequency attacks on US diplomats in the Austrian capitol, and a department spokesperson told the Daily Mail that the incidents were a 'top priority' for Secretary of State Antony Blinken.  'We are vigorously investigating reports of possible unexplained health incidents among the U.S. Embassy Vienna community or wherever they are reported,' the spokesperson said.  Roughly two dozen US intelligence officers, diplomats, and other officials in Vienna have reported symptoms similar to those of Havana Syndrome, which produces dizziness, headaches and hearing loss, since President Joe Biden took office in January, the New Yorker reported Friday. ...

    Space weather may have played a part in the Titanic disaster, according to new research. In the research published in the Royal Meteorological Society’s journal Weather, Mila Zinkova writes that space weather may have affected the Titanic’s navigation and communication prior to the disaster, as well as impacting the rescue operation. “The significant space weather event was in the form of a moderate to strong geomagnetic storm that observational evidence suggests was in effect in the North Atlantic at the time of the tragedy,” Zinkova writes, in an abstract of the study. The Titanic struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic at 11:40 p.m. ship’s time on April 14, 1912, during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. The liner sank just over two hours later with the loss of more than 1,500 lives. Zinkova, who is described by the Science Times as an independent weather researcher and retired computer programmer, has published a number of research papers on the Titanic. There have been other examples of space weather impacting systems on Earth. On Sept. 2, 1859, space...

    Coronavirus — The Government has approved this week extend the extraordinary benefit due to cessation of activity due to force majeure or loss of income for the self-employed until the return of summer. This subsidy, which they have already received 1.4 million own-account workers, is an aid for those people who have been more affected by the economic slowdown after the pandemic, and also allows the beneficiaries to remain exonerated from paying the Social Security fee. The benefit lasts a month, but may be extended, and is calculated with 70% of the regulatory base or with 70% of the minimum base when the minimum contribution period cannot be credited to be entitled to the benefit. You can request it any self-employed worker enrolled in the corresponding regime that would be affected by the closure of businesses due to the state of alarm or whose turnover has fallen 75% with respect to the monthly average of the previous semester. Applicants will have to be up-to-date with the payment of Social Security contributions or credit payments due within 30 calendar days...

    Pedro Sánchez’s government committed to the tenants of the Madrid-Atocha Cercanías station shops so that the administrator of the railway network, Adif, will not collect the rent of the station stores that have been closed during the months of the alarm state as a result of the impact of the coronavirus. However, as OKDIARIO has learned, Adif has passed the receipts from the months of March to June to those affected. In this way, the company chaired by Isabel Pardo de Vera has not respected the measure announced by the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, José Luis Ábalos, in which he promised that “commercial activities that could not be operated would be exempt from paying the rent that would be applicable during the period of inactivity” . This measure was applicable to both Adif and the airport manager, Aena. However, and despite the promises of the Executive, various owners of the Atocha premises denounce that this agreement has not been respected and that they have been charged rent, so they face a very complicated economic situation after more...
    Wildlife scientists around the world are planning to investigate how animal behaviours have been affected by the slowdown in human activity during lockdown. They will gather data from sources including GPS, sensors and surveys to assess how more than a hundred terrestrial and marine species responded to the lockdown - or 'Anthropause'. At least two global studies have already begun, according to a paper published by the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, with several others in the pipeline. The research aims to reveal how increases in human movements over the past decades have impacted animals - and to identify locations where mitigating technologies such as wildlife corridors may be needed. A previous study on species movements found that those living in areas where there is a high human impact move a half to a third as much as their counterparts living in areas with little human interference.  At least two studies looking at the movements of terrestrial and marine species worldwide are already underway, with several others said to be in the pipeline This map shows the changes...
