17 killed in Butuan City fire Loading the player... BUTUAN CITY, Philippines—An inferno at a three-story garment store in this southern Philippine city before dawn Wednesday killed 17 employees, most of whom were women who were asleep and trapped on the top floor, officials said. The number of casualties was previously placed at 13 but police scouring the gutted building along Montilla Boulevard found four more bodies, Superintendent Martin Gamba, Caraga police spokesman, said. The blaze, which started shortly before 4 a.m., reached the general alarm before it was put out at 6:15 a.m., said Gamba. Store employee Mylene Tulo, who escaped with two co-workers, said she was roused from sleep as the fire spread rapidly in the third-floor office where they slept. “We wanted to rouse others from sleep, but the fire was already too strong,” a stunned Tulo said. At least 20 employees, mostly women, were sleeping at the store when the fire broke out, said city police chief Pedro Obaldo.

Ustream is pissed about DDOS attack, may launch Russian site tomorrow Ustream is undergoing what chief executive Brad Hunstable says is the “largest and most coordinated DDOS attack Ustream has ever seen” today, and the team is pissed. The attack is rumored to be an attempt to censor a Russian citizen journalist reporting on protests in the county. “We’re a business, we lost a lot money today,” said Hunstable (pictured above) in an interview with VentureBeat. “This was on a scale that I’m not sure many websites would be able to fight off. Above: Live video of protests in Russia on Ustream’s homepage A denial of service attack is when an individual or group of individuals attempt to access a website at hyper speeds, clogging up the network and eventually bringing the tired website down. Hunstable is not taking this lying down, however. “We’re going to huddle up late tonight and take a step back and figure out what we can do differently,” Hunstable said. The team got a tip-off from a Russian user who revealed two names of suspected attackers.

Relationship Rules Human beings crave intimacy, need to love and be loved. Yet people have much trouble doing so. It's clear from the many letters I get that lots of folks have no idea what a healthy relationship even looks like. Because I care about these things, and care about the environments children grow in, I'm using this space as an attempt to remedy the problem—again. From many sources and many experts, I have culled some basic rules of relationships. Choose a partner wisely and well. Optinvent Ustream outage due to DDoS aimed at citizen journalist | Security & Privacy Ustream was hit with a distributed denial-of-service attack today that apparently was designed to interfere with the streaming of video from antigovernment demonstrations in Russia, the CEO of the live streaming site told CNET. "We are 100 percent confident that they were targeting a specific channel on Ustream of a Russian citizen journalist. This is the third time in the last six months that a specific Russian citizen journalist was directly targeted through this complex and highly adaptive attack," Brad Hunstable, co-founder and CEO of Ustream said in a phone interview from Budapest. The attack started around 2:30 a.m. "What we saw today were systematic attempts, method after method, up to seven methods," Hunstable said, adding that it was the largest attack the site has seen in its more than five years in operation. Asked if he believed that the Russian government was behind the attack, Hunstable said he could not speculate.

How citizen video journalists in Egypt are 'pushing at traditional journalism' | Online Journalism Features Activist and citizen journalist Salma Said was shot in the face, arm, pelvis and legs When Salma Said was shot she was armed with a video camera. She is an activist and part of a "citizen video journalism" collective in Egypt called Mosireen, which was the most-viewed non-profit YouTube channel in the world in January. The group started in the wake of Egypt's revolution which began on 25 January last year and saw the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak 18 days later. Members of the collective see themselves as performing an essential storytelling role: providing coverage of police brutality and filling a media "vacuum". "There isn't a free media," founder member Omar Hamilton told me during a visit to the collective's workspace in Cairo. Salma Said was attempting to tell the story of a demonstration, where protesters had gathered following the deaths of at least 79 football fans in a stadium in Port Said on 1 February, when she was shot.
