Undergraduates, others arrested for stealing N2bn from bank

Samuel, Friday and Mahmoud

From Punch :

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested two young men who claimed to be undergraduates of the University of Jos, Isaiah Friday and Azzaior Samuel, for an alleged N2.05bn fraud.Two bureau de change operators, Salihu Mahmoud and Dan Ibrahim, were also arrested in connection with the alleged crime.The suspects were also accused of being members of a syndicate that specialised in breaking into the computer data base of financial institutions to carry out dry posting of funds.The Head, Media and Publicity, EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said the suspects were arrested in Lagos and Jos.

He said, “Their arrest comes on the heels of a petition which the commission received from Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, Marina, Lagos, in January 2013, alleging that a criminal attack had been launched on its data base known as ‘Flexcube’, by yet-to-be-identified criminals who falsified the bank records and accounts and created unjustified huge opening balances in several accounts across the bank’s branches. They subsequently transferred funds from those accounts to several accounts in other banks.

“The petition, which was signed by one A.F Olufade, Head of Fraud Investigation at the bank, said cash withdrawals and electronic transfers totalling N2.05bn was involved in the scam.”
It was learnt that EFCC initial investigation showed that Friday, who was carrying out computer system maintenance services for one of the Union Bank branches in Jos, Plateau State, on a part-time basis, paved the way for the fraudsters to penetrate the bank’s database.

Terror ! ... 11 people dead and 12 injured as gunman goes on killing spree in Washington D.C

Gunman: Accprding to NBC Washington, this man Aaron Alexis, 34, from Fort Worth, Texas is the Navy Yard shooterFrantic Search: Emergency responders arrive at the scene of a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, where several people were killed and others injured when at least one gunman opened fire at the U.S. Navy Yard

A  34-year-old civilian contractor Aaron Alexis  visited this morning as at least one heavily armed gunman calmly opened fire inside a building at the Washington Navy Yard killing at least 11 people and injuring at least 12 in Washington D.C.  The man who  is said to be a native of  Brooklyn native entered the cafeteria in the Washington D.C. military base brandishing an AR-15 rifle, shotgun and handgun and began shooting.

After SWAT teams swarmed the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command the FBI said that Alexis died following his rampage, during which witnesses said he appeared to fire at selected targets and not randomly.
Washington D.C.'s FBI field office reportedly said that they have 'all assets out' as they search for one other possible shooter they described as a black man in his 40s or his 50s.
Washington D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier said the other potential gunman was wearing a military-style uniform and has greying sideburns.
'It appears that we have at least 12 fatalities … it doesn’t get much more serious than that, obviously,' said Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray.
'We have no known motive at this stage. We will continue the investigation to try and figure out what that motive is.'
Previously, Washington D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier said that law enforcement were searching for two individuals, one white and one black.
Armed police prepare to enter the Washington Navy Yard as they respond to a shooting in Washington, Monday, Sept. 16, 2013. At least one gunman opened fire inside a building at the Navy yard

However, police have said they have identified  the white individual and he's not a suspect or person of interest.
The police  are investigating whether the ID of a former Navy petty officer called Rollie Chance was used by Alexis to gain entrance to the the Navy Yard compound.

Scientists develop world's first self-fixing plastic to make electrical items last longer

Impressive: The researchers from the Centre for Electrochemical Technologies said that after being cut in two and the pieces pushed back together, one sample 97 per cent healed in two hours

Culled from Dailymail

Now, more than 20 years after the 1991 film Terminator 2 was released, Spanish scientists claim to have developed the world's first self-healing polymer that can spontaneously rebuild.The new material has been labelled ‘Terminator’ by researchers, who say it could help improve the lifetime and security of plastic parts in anything from electrical components to houses.

The single piece was unbreakable when stretched by hand, according to scientists Alaitz Rekondo, Roberto Martin, Alaitz Ruiz de Luzuriaga, German Cabanero, Hans Grande and Ibon Odriozola.
They said: ‘Such a material presents near quantitative self-healing efficiency at room-temperature, without the need for any external intervention such as heat or light.’
