If any confirmation were needed that Jack Leach has become an England cult hero, it came on the third evening at The Oval. Leach had walked out to bat alongside Jofra Archer, with England eight down and sitting on a 374-run lead when people began to rise in their seats and join in with a booming chorus that echoed around the ground: “Stand up if you love Jack Leach!”

Only those of a green-and-gold persuasion declined to join the choir. Leach’s fan club has grown steadily since the middle of summer, but largely because of his batting exploits rather than his spin bowling. First came the 92 as nightwatchman opener against Ireland at Lord’s, for which he was named Man of the Match; then the valiant 1 off 17 balls to accompany Ben Stokes into the history books at Headingley. In the first innings at The Oval, he held up his end while helping Jos Buttler to add 68 and lift England from trouble again.

Then there is the endearing routine of cleaning his glasses between deliveries. In part it is Leach’s everyman appearance that chimes with the watching public – though the sight of fans at Old Trafford mimicking his bald pate and glasses prompted Kevin Pietersen to wonder in a column for a betting site whether Leach was becoming a “laughing stock”.

On the final day of the series at The Oval, Leach made sure the talk would be about his bowling at last. He made key incisions to remove Marnus Labuschagne and Tim Paine before taking the last two wickets to fall for figures of 4 for 49 – his best in home Tests – in the process sharing all ten with Stuart Broad and his captain, Joe Root.

“Today I just wanted to be patient and felt if I did my job well then the wickets would come,” he said. “I needed to put the ball in the right area and be patient. I got my rewards at the end, with some good catching from Rooty. Broady set the tone amazingly well earlier on, it was a real team effort. The Aussies fought hard but we did enough.

“It was nice to get some wickets on the last day. The support for me has been something I didn’t think I’d ever experience. Maybe it’s because of my batting, but I think it’s mainly because I’m bald and have got glasses. The way the public have warmed to me is something very special and I don’t take for granted. I can’t thank them enough.”

England were well on their way to drawing the series on Saturday evening, when Leach was warmly serenaded by the Oval crowd. Looking back, he was happy enough to acknowledge the moment of fortune at Headingley that saw Nathan Lyon drop the ball with a decisive run-out opportunity begging.

“Yesterday, when I was batting at the end, over there they were singing ‘Stand up if you love Jack Leach’, and then they started over there as well. I just thought ‘What is going on?’ Nathan Lyon came over and said to me ‘How many beers do you owe me [for the run out]?’ I think I owe him a lot. Sport is fickle and I guess you have to enjoy the good moments and not get too down about the bad moments. I have had some luck as well. Hopefully you earn that luck through hard work, I will continue working hard.”

Leach has been a hit on social media, as well as in the stands, with a video of his re-enactment of the single he scored at Headingley receiving more than 5000 likes on Twitter. After Australia had retained the urn by winning the next Test, at Old Trafford, there were suggestions that Steven Smith had donned a pair of glasses in mock tribute – though it was later clarified to be a joke at the expense of bespectacled former Australia opener Chris Rogers.

“Smith came to me to let me know that it wasn’t about me,” Leach said. “I didn’t know whether it was or wasn’t. I was kind of hoping it was, and thought it was a good laugh. I was very embarrassed after Headingley when the video came out of me doing my one. I think I deserved that to be honest! That’s why we got a picture together after the game with him wearing my glasses!”

Having made a low-key debut in Christchurch in March 2018, then missing out on the following Test summer through injury, it feels as though Leach has taken 18 months to become an overnight success. However, he does not intend to bask in his new status, and could well find himself involved in a momentous achievement of a different kind over the coming days, with Somerset closing in on the first-ever Championship title in their history.

“Somerset-Essex next week, I don’t know if I’ll play yet. I’ve been part of that Somerset season as well so I don’t know. During this series it’s been pretty mentally and physically tiring. But I probably haven’t bowled too many overs, not a silly amount. It will be good to go back and try to win the Championship with Somerset because we’ve never won that.”

Solomon Islands breaks ties with Taiwan after Chinese ‘dollar diplomacy’

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Solomon Islands breaks ties with Taiwan after Chinese ‘dollar diplomacy’
Sep

TAIPEI (Reuters) – The Solomon Islands’ government has cut official ties with Taiwan in a new blow to President Tsai Ing-wen, who is seeking re-election in January amid rising tension with China.

Taiwan now has formal relations with only 16 countries worldwide, but China claims Taiwan as its territory and says it has no right to formal ties with any nation.

Taiwan’s foreign minister, Joseph Wu, told reporters in Taipei late on Monday that it would immediately close down its embassy in the Solomon Islands and recall all of its diplomats.

Wu said China was aiming to meddle with Taiwan’s presidential and legislative elections in January with “dollar diplomacy”.

“The Chinese government attacked Taiwan purposely before our presidential and legislative elections, obviously aiming to meddle with the voting. The government strongly condemns this and urges people to hold on to its sovereignty and the value of freedom and democracy,” Wu said.

“Taiwan has never bowed to pressure from one single setback, and it won’t be defeated by this blow,” Wu said, urging support from allies in the region to defend Taiwan’s much-valued freedom and democracy.

Solomon Islands is the sixth country Taiwan will lose as a diplomatic ally since Tsai came to office in 2016 — following Burkina Faso, the Dominican Republic, Sao Tome and Principe, Panama and El Salvador.

Tsai, who’s facing an uphill battle in January’s vote, has been criticised over her handling of Beijing, who suspects of her pushing for Taiwan’s formal independence.

China’s foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The move came after the Solomon Islands’ months-long review of the pros and cons of a switch to Beijing, which was offering $8.5 million in development funds to replace support from Taiwan.

The Solomons Prime Minister’s office did not immediately respond to questions.

A switch in allegiance would be a prize for Beijing in its campaign to secure allies from Taiwan.

Taiwan vowed to fight China’s “increasingly out of control” behaviour after El Salvador switched its allegiance to Beijing last year.

You Can Jailbreak Your iPhone Again (But Maybe You Shouldn’t)

At this point, Apple has locked iOS down enough that a full jailbreak—unlocking a device to install whatever you want on it—of current releases is extremely rare. When such a capability does exist, it’s usually kept quiet and sold for millions of dollars by exploit brokers. But now, thanks to an apparent Apple gaffe, the latest version of iOS can be jailbroken at this very moment. There’s even code to do it on Github.

As first reported by Motherboard, researchers discovered over the weekend that in its recent iOS 12.4 release, Apple had accidentally rolled back a patch that fixed a bug from iOS 12.3. As a result, it’s possible to exploit the vulnerability to jailbreak iOS 12.4, making it the first current-version iOS jailbreak to be publicly disclosed in years.

“It’s really a surprise to see,” says Will Strafach, a longtime iOS jailbreaker and founder of Sudo Security Group. “It’s been so long since an up-to-date firmware could be jailbroken. But now that Apple knows, it won’t be for long. I expect an update within a few days.” Apple did not return a request from WIRED for comment.

“It puts millions of iOS users at risk.”

Patrick Wardle, Jamf

Jailbreaking allows iOS users to add apps and other functions that Apple wouldn’t normally permit to their iPhones. iOS has rigid limitations that are at least partly meant to protect users from malicious apps, but that also preserve Apple’s control over the ecosystem. As a result, jailbreaking erodes some system protections, but it also allows users to break free from Apple’s constraints.

Hacker Pwn20wnd posted a public version of the jailbreak on Monday that iOS users are already using to redesign the look of their iOS home screens and install unapproved apps. Researchers have warned, though, that jailbreaking potentially makes a device less secure, undermining protections that keep apps from reading each other’s data, and opening the iPhone to potential attacks. An unscrupulous developer could even add functionality to an App Store-approved app that would trigger a jailbreak when a user installs it.

“This is rather inexcusable, as it puts millions of iOS users at risk,” says Patrick Wardle, principal security researcher at the Mac management firm Jamf. “And the irony, as others have already noted, is that since Apple doesn’t allow us to downgrade to old versions, we’re really kind of sitting ducks.”

Sudo Security’s Strafach says that in detailed scans of the App Store he hasn’t seen any such malicious behavior cropping up so far. But the threat remains, as does the risk that attackers might use other paths to compromise devices—tainted third-party apps, Apple’s enterprise distribution certificates, or other remote exploits.

As a jailbreaking fan, though, Strafach also sees opportunities for exploration and insights that outweigh the risks. And he notes that as iOS has matured, jailbreaks have gotten harder to weaponize when they do crop up. But it’s still not something to undertake lightly.

The WIRED Guide to the iPhone

The bigger significance of the incident relates to longstanding tensions between Apple and the security research community. The company announced earlier this month that it was finally launching a Mac bug bounty, after introducing an iOS program in 2016. And Apple even said this month that it will distribute special iPhones that are less restrictive than their consumer counterparts to security researchers. But the company is also in the process of suing the mobile security testing firm Corellium for copyright infringement, because Corellium offers a virtual iOS build that researchers can test on remotely. Both Wardle and Strafach point out that Corellium’s tool could have been used to catch the mistakenly reintroduced vulnerability in iOS 12.4.

“This shows that Apple continues to struggle with security—even on iOS which is clearly their priority,” Wardle says. “And this was uncovered by an independent security researcher, which illustrates the value such researchers add. Apple’s more communicative approach with their new bug bounty program is good, but their attempts to shut down researcher tools like Corellium are bad.”

I have ‘unfinished business’ as Test captain, declares Tim Paine after Oval defeat

Tim Paine says he has “unfinished business” as Australia’s Test captain after defeat at The Oval allowed England to draw the Ashes series, and that he has “a little bit of cricket left” in his body.

Despite Matthew Wade‘s counter-attacking innings of 117 – which Paine surprisingly described as “one of the great Ashes hundreds” – Australia fell to a 135-run defeat after failing to chase 399 in their fourth innings, and their celebrations were notably muted.

While they celebrated as usual with champagne when the urn was presented, Justin Langer looked on with a scowl, and Paine admitted that defeat had put “a bit of a dampener” on their achievements in the series.

“There’s some mixed emotions,” Paine told Sky. “But I think from where this group has come from, to come to England and retain the Ashes is still a huge deal. It hasn’t been done for 20 years, so we’ve got a lot to be proud of.

“I think we’ve got some improvement, some learning to do, and that’s a great thing for us.”

About his own future, Paine denied that there was a feeling that retaining the urn represented an “endgame” for him.

“I didn’t see it as a beginning, or see it as an option all that long ago. As I said before this Test match, I’m loving the job I’ve got at the moment. I feel like there’s a little bit of unfinished business with this team and where we’re heading.

“I feel like I’ve got a little bit of cricket left in this old body, but I’m not looking too far down the track to when exactly that is.”

Paine said that he had “a couple” of regrets about the Oval Test, but conceded that England had “outplayed” his side over the course of the four days.

Paine became only the second Australian captain to lose an Ashes Test in England after winning the toss and choosing to bowl, after Ricky Ponting did so at Edgbaston in 2005, and joked that he is “always 50:50” before the toss.

“I can’t read a pitch that well,” he said. “We’re trying to get to the stage where the toss isn’t that important to us. You’ve got to win games of cricket when you lose a toss, and whether you bat or bowl first is a bit irrelevant.”

The stats do not particularly back Paine’s claims up. Since 1997, Australia have lost the toss 16 times in Tests in England, and won only three of those games, drawing three more and losing ten; out of the 20 games in which they have won the toss, they have won ten, drawn five and lost five.

Paine also bemoaned Australia’s inability to take their chances on the first day.

“I feel a bit sorry for our bowlers,” he said. “They were fantastic all series, created plenty of chances on day one and we just didn’t back them up. England got ahead of the game, and then they took it away from us.”

‘Leaving Neverland’ wins Emmy, Beyonce snubbed for ‘Homecoming’

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A documentary about alleged sexual abuse by Michael Jackson won an Emmy on Saturday while RuPaul was named best reality show host and Beyonce went home empty-handed.

“Leaving Neverland,” which features two adult men who say they were befriended by Jackson and sexually abused by him starting from when they were 7 and 10 years old, was named best documentary at a ceremony in Los Angeles ahead of television’s main Emmy awards show next week.

The program, which aired earlier this year, 10 years after Jackson’s death, was met with outrage by his family and brought fresh scrutiny to the “Thriller” singer’s legacy.

Jackson’s family and his estate have denied the accounts given by the men, calling them a “rehash of dated and discredited allegations.”

Beyonce, whose 2018 Coachella festival concert film “Homecoming” went into Saturday’s ceremony with six Emmy nominations was beaten in all categories.

James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” special with former Beatle Paul McCartney returning to his Liverpool hometown won over “Homecoming” for pre-recorded variety special, while the filmed version of Bruce Springsteen’s acclaimed one-man Broadway show triumphed for variety special directing.

Long-running show “The Simpsons” won the Emmy for best animated series, while gay makeover series “Queer Eye” took home four awards.

“Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” the travel and food show hosted by U.S. celebrity chef Bourdain who died by suicide in 2018, won two Emmys.

In other awards, drag queen RuPaul won his fourth Emmy as best reality show host for “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and rock climbing film “Free Solo”, which won the best documentary Oscar this year, added seven Emmys to its honors.

The main Emmy awards will be handed out on Sept. 22 in Los Angeles, with “Game of Thrones” and “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel”, leading the race for best drama and best comedy series.

As ‘The Sky Is Pink’ premiered at the Toronto Film Festival on Saturday, Priyanka Chopra took to social media to express her gratitude towards the people involved in the film.

An elated actor thanked Aditi and Niren Chaudhary, parents of Aisha Chaudhary, on whose life’s true story the movie is based.

“A special night with special people, sharing this labour of love which took us over a year to bring to life. It was an unforgettable experience… Thank you Aditi and Niren for trusting us with your story with us for joining us for #TheSkyIsPink world premiere at Tiff,” she wrote.

Calling director Shonali Bose a “true star of this film”, she thanked her for helming the film. She went on to appreciate co-producers Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur for their contribution.

“Shonali Bose you are the true star of this film! #RonnieScrewvala #SiddharthRoyKapur, as always, it’s been amazing collaborating with you. We’ve done some great films together and this one definitely is up there

with the rest of them for me.,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a series of snapshots.

The global icon made the grand entrance to the 2019 Toronto Film Festival by wearing a ravishing black and white frill gown ensemble.

Priyanka looked absolutely stunning in the couture with sweetheart neckline. The dress also featured a black satin belt which added extra grace to the whole outfit.

At the gala, she was joined by the complete cast and crew excluding Zaira Wasim. ‘The Sky Is Pink’ is based on the life of Aisha, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with an immune deficiency order at the age of 13. It also sheds light on the love story of her parents.

The flick will hit the big screens on October 11.

A still recovering Deandra Dottin couldn’t make it to West Indies women’s squad to face Australia women in a three-match T20I series starting on Saturday. There were several other senior players making way as well, including opener Hayley Matthews who had been suspended from taking part in the recently concluded ODI series between both teams.

West Indies haven’t played any T20I cricket since June, when they beat Ireland 3-0 but lost to England 1-0, with two matches washed out. Six of the players who went to the UK could not find a place in this squad, making way for new face such as wicketkeeper Reniece Boyce, offspinner Sheneta Grimmond and allrounder Shabika Gajnabi. Both players – in fact all 13 members – were part of the squad that had been picked for the third ODI against Australia earlier this week.

Kycia Knight remains sidelined by a back injury she picked up during those 50-over games while legspinner Anisa Mohammed makes a T20 comeback having played her last short-format game in February 2019.

Foreign leaders, supporters bid farewell to Zimbabwe’s Mugabe

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Foreign leaders, supporters bid farewell to Zimbabwe’s Mugabe
Sep

HARARE (Reuters) – Zimbabwe’s founder Robert Mugabe was honoured as an icon, principled leader and African intellectual giant at a state funeral on Saturday, after a week of disputes over his burial threatened to embarrass President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Mugabe led Zimbabwe for 37 years, from independence until he was ousted by the army in November 2017, by which time he was viewed by many at home and abroad as a power-obsessed autocrat who unleashed death squads, rigged elections and ruined the economy to keep control.

He died in a Singapore hospital on Sept. 6 aged 95, far away from a country he left polarised by a raging political rivalry between its two largest political parties, ZANU-PF and the opposition MDC.

His remains will be interred in a mausoleum at the National Heroes Acre in the capital Harare in about 30 days, his nephew said on Friday, contradicting earlier comments that a burial would be held on Sunday.

On Saturday, Mnangagwa walked behind the casket carrying Mugabe’s body as it was wheeled into the centre of Harare’s National Sports Stadium and placed on a podium decorated with flowers so that heads of state could say their farewells. Senior army generals and Mugabe’s wife and children followed, as a brass band played.

The 60,000 seater stadium was only half-filled.

In a tribute to his predecessor, Mnangagwa said Mugabe stood in defence of Africans. He urged the West to remove sanctions that were imposed during Mugabe’s rule.

“We who remain shall continue to hear his rich, brave, defiant and inspiring voice … encouraging and warning us to be vigilant and astute,” Mnangagwa said in a speech.

“A giant tree of Africa has fallen. Today Africa weeps.”

Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU-PF party wanted Mugabe buried at the national shrine to heroes of the 15-year liberation war against white minority rule. But some relatives, expressing bitterness at the way former comrades ousted Mugabe, had pushed for him to be buried in his home village.

Walter Chidhakwa, who spoke on behalf of Mugabe’s family, said Mugabe was an icon who was determined and unflinching in pursuing policies like land reform and later the black economic empowerment programme.

Mugabe left behind a country wrecked by hyperinflation, dollarisation and deeply entrenched corruption.

But many Zimbabweans also remember Mugabe as their country’s liberator from white minority rule and for broadening people’s access to education and land.

RAMAPHOSA BOOED

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa was booed by the crowd in the stadium after a wave of deadly riots and xenophobic attacks in South Africa earlier this month that triggered international anger. The attacks mainly targeted shops owned by African migrants.

The master of ceremony was forced to appeal to the crowd to give Ramaphosa a chance to speak.

“I stand before you as a fellow African to express my regret and to apologise for what has happened in our country,” Ramaphosa said, to cheering from the crowd.

Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta called Mugabe an intellectual giant, “a visionary leader and a relentless champion of African dignity.”

Other heads of state who attended Saturday’s funeral included long-ruling leaders from Equatorial Guinea and Congo while China, Russia and Cuba, which supported Zimbabwe’s liberation movements that fought white minority rule, were represented by officials.

Prominent officials from Western countries, which were critical of Mugabe’s rule, did not feature in the official funeral programme.

Mnangagwa led heads of state in viewing Mugabe’s body, which was followed by a military 21-gun salute to honour Mugabe.

Banners at the stadium where Mugabe’s body lay in state read “Hamba kahle, Gushungo,” (go well, Gushungo)”, a reference to his clan name, and “Go well our revolutionary icon”.

Cleo Mapuranga, a caterer, told Reuters that Mugabe fought to give land and economic freedom to blacks and provided non-racial education.

“Now, people are suffering. No one is controlling the prices in the shops. Our finance minister is trying to implement first-world policies which don’t work in third-world countries.”

Mugabe’s death has made some Zimbabweans question what Mnangagwa has achieved in his two years in power.

His government has taken steps to cut the budget deficit, remove subsidies on fuel and power and repeal laws curbing public and media freedoms, but those reforms and austerity measures have compounded ordinary people’s hardships.

As a result, jailbreaking erodes some system protections, but it also allows users to break free from Apple’s constraints.

Hacker Pwn20wnd posted a public version of the jailbreak on Monday that iOS users are already using to redesign the look of their iOS home screens and install unapproved apps. Researchers have warned, though, that jailbreaking potentially makes a device less secure, undermining protections that keep apps from reading each other’s data, and opening the iPhone to potential attacks. An unscrupulous developer could even add functionality to an App Store-approved app that would trigger a jailbreak when a user installs it.

“This is rather inexcusable, as it puts millions of iOS users at risk,” says Patrick Wardle, principal security researcher at the Mac management firm Jamf. “And the irony, as others have already noted, is that since Apple doesn’t allow us to downgrade to old versions, we’re really kind of sitting ducks.”

Sudo Security’s Strafach says that in detailed scans of the App Store he hasn’t seen any such malicious behavior cropping up so far. But the threat remains, as does the risk that attackers might use other paths to compromise devices—tainted third-party apps, Apple’s enterprise distribution certificates, or other remote exploits.

As a jailbreaking fan, though, Strafach also sees opportunities for exploration and insights that outweigh the risks. And he notes that as iOS has matured, jailbreaks have gotten harder to weaponize when they do crop up. But it’s still not something to undertake lightly.

The bigger significance of the incident relates to longstanding tensions between Apple and the security research community. The company announced earlier this month that it was finally launching a Mac bug bounty, after introducing an iOS program in 2016. And Apple even said this month that it will distribute special iPhones that are less restrictive than their consumer counterparts to security researchers. But the company is also in the process of suing the mobile security testing firm Corellium for copyright infringement, because Corellium offers a virtual iOS build that researchers can test on remotely. Both Wardle and Strafach point out that Corellium’s tool could have been used to catch the mistakenly reintroduced vulnerability in iOS 12.4.

“This shows that Apple continues to struggle with security—even on iOS which is clearly their priority,” Wardle says. “And this was uncovered by an independent security researcher, which illustrates the value such researchers add. Apple’s more communicative approach with their new bug bounty program is good, but their attempts to shut down researcher tools like Corellium are bad.”

Westley misses twin tons but guides Essex to safety

Warwickshire 517 (Lamb 173, Hain 82, Patel 51, Sibley 51, Harmer 6-143) drew with Essex 324 (Westley 141, Browne 65, Patel 6-73) and 158 for 2 (Westley 97, Cook 57*)

Tom Westley led the way with 237 runs in the match as Essex batted out for a draw against Warwickshire in the Specsavers County Championship Division One at Edgbaston.

Having been bowled out for 324, 193 behind, Essex followed on and closed the final day on 158 for two as the match petered out in the Birmingham sunshine.

Westley added a second innings 97 to his first innings 141 (266 balls, 18 fours) as he and Alastair Cook added 157 in 54 overs to shepherd their side to safety.

The draw secured Warwickshire’s Division One status, condemning Nottinghamshire to relegation, but meant that Essex relinquished the initiative to Somerset in the race for the title. On the back foot throughout the match, the visitors never recovered from their decision to bowl first which backfired spectacularly as Warwickshire piled up 517.

After resuming on the final morning on 278 for six in their first innings, Essex added just 46 as Warwickshire captain Jeetan Patel took six for 73. Patel struck twice in three balls as Adam Wheater was smartly caught by Sam Hain at short leg and Simon Harmer’s leg-stump was knocked out.

To compound Essex’s frustration, they fell one run short of a third batting point. When the last ball of the 110th over (the bonus points cut off) arrived, they were 299 for 8 but Aaron Beard drove Olly Hannon-Dalby straight to short extra cover so a potentially vital point slipped away.

Westley’s skilful resistance ended when he left one from Henry Brookes which flattened his off-stump before Patel removed Beard thanks to Liam Banks’ catch at third slip.

Following on, Essex lost Nick Browne from the fourth ball of the innings when he edged George Garrett into the slips, but Cook and Westley made measured progress on a flattening pitch. The pair reached their half-centuries from 98 and 101 balls respectively as the game headed for stale-mate.

Cook resisted the temptation to accelerate in search of his first championship century against Warwickshire (he has scored two first-class tons against them for MCC and England) but Westley advanced to within three runs of recording a second century in a match for the first time before chipping Matt Lamb to midwicket.

Hong Kong protesters take to the hills, as leader pledges housing reform

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters took to the hills to form flashlight-carrying human chains on Friday, using the Mid-Autumn Festival as a backdrop for the latest in more than three months of demonstrations that have sometimes flared into violence.

The peaceful protests, on a day when families traditionally gather to gaze at the moon and eat mooncakes while children swing colourful lanterns from the end of sticks, came after Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam promised to focus on housing and jobs to try to end the unrest.

Lam, who said she caused “unforgivable havoc” by igniting the crisis and would quit if she had the choice, said in a Facebook post her government would increase the supply of housing in the Chinese-ruled city.

“Housing and people’s livelihoods are the main priorities,” Lam said. “The government will add to housing supply measures which will be continuously put in place and not missed.”

As darkness fell on Friday night, protesters armed with flashlights, mobile phones and flashing lanterns, gathered at Victoria Peak, overlooking the city’s harbour, and Lion Rock, separating the New Territories from the Kowloon peninsula.

They were also climbing to the top of Tai Tung Shan on the offshore island of Lantau.

The spark for the protests was a now-withdrawn extradition bill and concerns that Beijing is eroding civil liberties, but many young protesters are also angry at sky-high living costs and a lack of job prospects.

Hong Kong has some of the world’s most expensive real estate and many young people say the city’s housing policy is unfair, benefiting the rich while forcing them to live with their parents or rent “shoe box” apartments at exorbitant prices.

The demonstrations started in June in response to a bill that would have allowed people to be sent to mainland China for trial in Communist Party-controlled courts, but have broadened into calls for greater democracy.

The former British colony returned to China in 1997 under a “one country, two systems” formula that guarantees freedoms not enjoyed on the mainland – including a much-cherished independent legal system.

At lunch on Friday, hundreds of pro-Beijing supporters packed into a shopping mall waving China flags and singing the Chinese national anthem.

“INTERNAL AFFAIR”

Sit-ins at shopping malls are also planned over the weekend.

Activists also plan to gather outside the British consulate on Sunday to demand that China honours the Sino-British Joint Declaration that was signed in 1984, laying out Hong Kong’s post-1997 future.

China says Hong Kong is now its internal affair. It denies meddling in Hong Kong and has accused the United States, Britain and others of fomenting the unrest.

Britain says it has a legal responsibility to ensure China abides by its obligations under the Joint Declaration.

When protests have turned violence, police have responded to violence with tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, water cannon and baton charges, as well as firing several live shots in the air, prompting complaints of excessive force.

Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing said on Friday he deeply regretted that his recent comments about the protests were misrepresented and reiterated that any actions that violate the rule of law cannot be tolerated.

Li’s statement came after China’s Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission published an article on social media accusing the tycoon of “harbouring criminality” after he called on the authorities to offer young people an olive branch amid the protests.

Li said through his spokesperson in a statement he would always accept criticism, but most importantly “lenience is not the same as indulgence, (and) is not the same as disregarding legal procedures”.

Hong Kong is facing its first recession in a decade as a result of the unrest. A surge in migration applications suggests more locals are making plans to leave.

China has called on its biggest state firms to take a more active role in Hong Kong, including stepping up investment and asserting more control over companies.

Multiple Hong Kong events and conferences have been cancelled and the number of visitors plunged 40 percent in August. The city’s premier women’s tennis event scheduled for October has been postponed.

Organisers also called off the Royal Shakespeare Company’s “Matilda the Musical”, due to run from Sept. 20 to Oct. 20.

Police on Tuesday set up an “anti-violence hotline” on which people could call in giving intelligence on planned unrest.

On Friday they announced it had been shut down.

“A large amount of information was received and at the same time, there were different opinions,” police said in a statement. “…As a result, police decided to suspend the hot line.”

Apple stops signing iOS 12.4, blocking downgrades following jailbreak release

Following the release of a public jailbreak last month, Apple today has stopped signing iOS 12.4. This means users can no longer downgrade from iOS 12.4.1 to iOS 12.4.

A week after the jailbreak was shared publicly, Apple released iOS 12.4.1 to close the vulnerability. The jailbreak was released after it was discovered that Apple accidentally unpatched a vulnerability that was originally fixed in iOS 12.3.

The bug in question was first reported to Apple by Google’s Project Zero team. Apple detailed the fix in the security release notes for iOS 12.3. The jailbreak took advantage of that loophole.

When Apple stops signing an iOS version, it means users are no longer able to downgrade to that version via iTunes. Downgrading is common among users who are waiting on jailbreak updates, especially in this instance given the public availability of a jailbreak for iOS 12.4.

The ability to downgrade is sometimes also useful to those who experience significant bugs after updating to the newest version of iOS. This is why Apple generally waits several weeks before it stops signing older versions of iOS.

The public release of a jailbreak for modern iPhones has become increasingly rare. In general, jailbreak details are kept private to keep Apple from patching it. Furthermore, jailbreaks are coveted among security researchers because of potential payouts available in the security market.

Apple will release iOS 13 to the public on September 19th, followed by iOS 13.1 on September 30th.
