Understanding Vitiligo, A Little-Understood Skin Condition

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 25 June 2019 - For the past eight years, June 25 has been designated as World Vitiligo Day to help increase awareness of a skin disease known as vitiligo that affects about 1 in every 100 people around the globe.Vitiligo causes a person's skin to lose its pigment, resulting in discoloured skin patches, known as macules. The disease commonly occurs before 20 years of age. While its causes remain unknown, factors such as stress, genetic make-up, exposure to toxins can trigger the skin depigmentation process. Although the skin patches are not life-threatening, they can affect the mental and emotional well-being of vitiligo patients. Due to a misconception about vitiligo being contagious, sufferers have been known to be subjected to bullying and even social ostracism -- causing many to suffer from low esteem and psychological trauma. Vitiligo sufferers should do their utmost to cooperate with their doctors since early and proper treatment can help stop the spread of discolouration and restore pigment in many of the cases. They should also avoid self-medication or folk remedies, since these might not only be inappropriate but even worsen their current situation. One specialist facility which provides a comprehensive range of treatment is the Novena Vitiligo Medical Centre in Singapore ( It is the first vitiligo medical centre in Singapore and South-east Asia to focus solely on the treatment of vitiligo using state-of-the-art technology. At the Novena Vitiligo Medical Centre, patients will be given customised treatment, depending on their specific needs. Each patient will be given a thorough assessment of his/her physical symptoms by doctors at the centre. Apart from examining the size and extent of the depigmentation, the patient will also be asked about his/her previous treatment history and lifestyle habits. Only then will the doctors recommend the best treatment for the more

DDoS-for-hire websites make a comeback despite FBI crackdown, according to Nexusguard Threat Report

Telcos and communications service providers (CSPs) will need to take advanced precautions against “bit and piece” DDoS attacks SAN FRANCISCO, UNITED STATES - Media OutReach - 25 June 2019 - DDoS attacks "for hire" made a comeback in the beginning of the year, with booter-originated attacks rebounding to more than double their amounts in Q4 2018, according to Nexusguard's "Q1 2019 Threat Report." Despite the earlier FBI crackdown, the DNS amplification types of DDoS attacks continued to be a favorite of DDoS-for-hire websites, soaring more than 40 times their volume compared to last quarter. The resurgence of DDoS-as-a-service and the growing botnets reinforce the evolving cyber threat of DDoS attacks for enterprises and communications service providers (CSPs). The quarterly report, which measures thousands of DDoS attacks around the world, revealed DNS amplification attacks were also the most frequently employed against CSPs and telcos in Brazil this quarter. One of the largest banks in South America bore the brunt of these Brazilian DNS amplification attacks--more than 17% of all attacks. "Bit and piece" types of attacks, or DDoS attacks that were smaller than one Gbps in size, continued to cause issues in the beginning of 2019 by becoming more automated and targeted, bypassing detection. Nexusguard researchers warn that CSPs will need to approach these evolved attacks with scalable, cloud-based DDoS detection and mitigation in order to reduce potential damages. CSPs that fall victim to bit-and-piece attacks and unknowingly pass on malicious traffic will risk undermining customer confidence. "Due to the increasing demand for DDoS attack services and the boom in connected devices, hackers for hire have doubled and DDoS campaigns are not going away for organizations," said Juniman Kasman, chief technology officer for Nexusguard. "Businesses will need to ensure their attack protections can seamlessly evolve with new vectors and tactics that attac more

The President will be presented the award during the conference, during which he will also present the keynote address.   Senegal is a global hotspot for oil and gas discoveries -- well-known as the place in Africa to make major oil and gas finds, due in large part to a decades-long campaign by Sall to improve transparency, create an attractive investment environment and spark new growth.   "As African countries across the continent aim to spur growth and diversify economically, Senegal is a prime example of a country making energy work -- creating an enabling environment for business to succeed, attracting huge international investments, while providing for a strong local capacity and downstream investment options," said Guillaume Doane, CEO of Africa Oil & Power. " H.E. Macky Sall is one of Africa's top leaders, not just in oil and gas, but as an advocate for overall economic success. We are honored to present him this award."   Sall first worked as the CEO of Petrosen from 2000 -- 2001, before becoming the country's Minister of Mines Energy and Hydraulics in 2001. After a long political career in Senegal, Sall was elected president of Senegal in 2012, and pushed through a series of reforms to revive Senegal's economy and attract international investors.   "In a continent where border disputes have held back the development of offshore more
