Diane Downs – All you need to know about the 1983 Oregon horror

On the night of May 19, 1983, Diane Downs entered the emergency room ward in Springfield, Oregon. Her three children, Kristi, 8, Cheryl, 7, and Danny, 3, were in the back seat covered in blood: hit by an empty bullet. Emergency room staff announced Cheryl’s death at the scene and placed the other two in hospital with serious injuries.

When asked about the events that occurred, Downs explained the story of a man who set her on the side of a dirt road, while her three children were sleeping in the back seat. He asked for her car and she refused and shot her children. After she escaped, she ran to the emergency room. During her struggle with the “shaggy-haired” man, she also got a bullet in her left arm but it was not life threatening.

While her children were still in the hospital, Downs began giving media interviews, telling strange stories and explaining her innocence. Her story was useless. It was full of extraneous details that reduced the legitimacy of the story. Describing it as taking the children to see in the dark, while they were asleep, does not make sense. The police began investigating Downes. They managed to find her secret diary that explained her relationship with a married man. The man she was involved with did not want the children, which made her view them as a burden.

Although the stroke impaired Kristi’s ability to speak, she was able to tell the police what she remembered of that night. Her story did not include seeing a “shaggy-haired” man. This led to Downs’ arrest in February 1984 with a trial that began in May of the same year. However, Downs had a plan to win sympathy from the jury. She seduced a man along her postal route and was pregnant during her trial.

After all the evidence against Downs was presented, a star witness was put on the podium. After months of physical and mental therapy, Kristi Downs was able to take the stand and tell the jury she had been shot. Downs was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment plus fifty years. She was able to give birth between judgment and judgment. The baby, named Amy Elizabeth, was adopted by another family and named Becky Babcock.

Just three years into her sentence, Downs managed to escape from the prison in Oregon where she was being held. Two weeks later, she was discovered blocks from the prison, in the home of another inmate’s husband. She remains in prison today, in California, in a high security facility. In 2008 and 2010, she was denied parole and had to wait a decade before applying again.

A data center is a facility that centralizes an organization’s shared IT equipment and operations for the purpose of storing, processing, and disseminating data and applications. Because they house an organization’s most critical and proprietary assets, data centers are vital to the continuity of day-to-day operations.

Types of data centers?

There are four main types of data centers:

  • Enterprise data centers. These are created, owned and operated by companies and are optimized for their end users.
  • Managed services data centers.
  • Colocation data centers.
  • Cloud data centers.

Data center business?

A data center (or data center) is a facility made up of computers and networked storage that businesses and other organizations use to organize, process, store, and disseminate large amounts of data.

How to build a networked data center?
8 steps to building a modern data center

  • Be modular.
  • Convergence when possible.
  • Let the software do the driving.
  • Adopt basic hardware.
  • Empower end users.
  • Break down silos.
  • What a hybrid.
  • Focus on continuity of service

Why do you need a data center?

Data centers offer the capabilities – scalability, security, efficiency, and state-of-the-art technology – that businesses and organizations are demanding more and more, but are too expensive to do on their own. Data migration goes a long way; from safety and reliability to energy efficiency and cost reduction.

What Makes a Good Data Center?

Data centers must use software and technology that protect their assets, but they must also have strong physical security. Your facility should have adequate locks, surveillance and, depending on the size, even security personnel.

How are data centers connected?

Basically, a data center connects to the Internet like any other user: through the line of a dedicated service provider. However, unlike a typical building, data centers have multiple connections available from different vendors, allowing them to offer a variety of options to their customers.

Who has more data centers?

While the majority of the 504 hyperscale installations (40 percent) are in the US, the highest growth rates have been in Europe and Asia-Pacific. China, Japan, the UK, Germany and Australia now account for 32 percent of the total. Amazon and Microsoft launched more than half of all new data centers in the last 12 months.

A network consists of two or more computers that are connected to share resources (such as printers and CDs), exchange files, or allow electronic communications. Computers on a network can be connected through cables, telephone lines, radio waves, satellites, or rays of infrared light.

Two common types of networks:

Local area network (LAN)
Wide Area Network (WAN)

Local area network

A local area network (LAN) is a network that is limited to a relatively small area. It is usually limited to a geographic area such as a writing lab, school, or building.

Computers connected to a network are broadly classified as servers or workstations. Servers are not generally used directly by humans, but rather run continuously to provide “services” to the other computers (and their human users) on the network. The services provided may include printing and faxing, software hosting, file storage and sharing, messaging, data storage and retrieval, full access control (security) for network resources, and many others.

Workstations are so named because they typically have a human user interacting with the network through them. Workstations were traditionally considered a desktop computer, consisting of a computer, keyboard, screen, and mouse, or a laptop, with an integrated keyboard, display, and touchpad. With the advent of the tablet and touch screen devices such as iPad and iPhone, our definition of workstation is rapidly evolving to include those devices, due to their ability to interact with the network and use network services.

Servers tend to be more powerful than workstations, although configurations are driven by need. For example, a group of servers may be located in a safe area, away from humans, and can only be accessed through the network. In such cases, it would be common for servers to function without a dedicated display or keyboard. However, the size and speed of the server’s processors, hard drive, and main memory can dramatically increase the cost of the system. On the other hand, a workstation may not need as much storage or working memory, but it might require an expensive display to fit the needs of its user. Each computer on a network must be properly configured for use.

In a single LAN, computers and servers can be connected via cables or wirelessly. Wireless access to a wired network is possible through wireless access points (WAP). These WAP devices provide a bridge between computers and networks. A typical WAP may have the theoretical capacity to connect hundreds or even thousands of wireless users to a network, although the practical capacity may be much less.

Servers will almost always be wired to the network, because wired connections are still the fastest. Workstations that are stationary (desktop computers) are also often wired to the network, although the cost of wireless adapters has been reduced to the point that by installing workstations in an existing wired installation inappropriate, it may be easier and less expensive to use wireless technology for a desktop computer.

See the topology, cabling, and hardware sections of this tutorial for more information on setting up a LAN.

Wide area network

Wide Area Networks (WANs) connect networks in larger geographic areas, such as Florida, the United States, or the world. Dedicated transoceanic cabling or satellite uplinks can be used to connect this type of global network.

With a WAN, Florida schools can reach places like Tokyo in seconds, without having to pay huge phone bills. Two users half a world away with workstations equipped with microphones and webcams can teleconference in real time. A WAN is complicated. It uses multiplexers, bridges, and routers to connect local and metropolitan networks to global communications networks such as the Internet. To users, however, a WAN will not seem much different than a LAN.


Structured Query Language or SQL is a standard database language used to create, maintain and retrieve data from relational databases such as MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, PostGre, etc. The recent ISO standard version of SQL is SQL: 2019. As the name suggests, it is used when we have structured data (in the form of tables). All databases that are not relational (or that do not use fixed structure tables to store data) and therefore do not use SQL, are called NoSQL databases. Examples of NoSQL are MongoDB, DynamoDB, Cassandra, etc.


Database interface for LabVIEW Robotic Control

LabVIEW is a dynamic tool that uses data to modify the operational parameters of a robot, depending on different conditions. To do this, the data must be stored in such a way that the program can easily access it. Therefore, database interfaces are developed to facilitate efficient communication. SQL queries within the database enable convenient, structured data storage and retrieval, which in turn improves the robot’s functionality.

SMS-based remote server monitoring system

These systems are particularly beneficial for large corporate organizations that have massive data centers and multiple servers. Since these servers host a large number of applications, it is difficult to monitor their functionality. Typically, when a server is down or crashed, clients inform the organization about it.

To avoid delays in corrective actions, you need a web-based solution that can remotely monitor these server failures. Such an application would periodically ping the servers based on predetermined rules, and then send an SMS to a predetermined list of specialists in case a server is down. This message would contain specific details about the server, the time of failure, etc.

Blood Donation Database

This database would store interrelated data on patients, blood donors, and blood banks. You can follow the example of the data points listed below.

Patient name, unique identification, blood group and disease
Donor name, unique identification, blood group, medical report, address, contact number
Name of the blood bank, address, donor details of the blood bank (name, address, contact number)
Now, try to implement the same in a database by creating a schema, an Entity-Relationship (E-R) diagram, and then try to normalize it.

Hospital Management System

It is a web-based system or software that allows you to manage the operation of a hospital or any other medical facility. Creates a systematic and standardized registry of patients, doctors and rooms, which can only be controlled by the administrator. All patients and doctors will have a unique one and will be related in the database based on the treatments in progress. In addition, there will be separate modules for hospital admission, patient discharge summary, roles of nurses and ward boys, medical stores, etc.

Centralized university database

A university has academic departments, such as the Department of English, the Department of Mathematics, the Department of History, etc. And each department offers a variety of courses. Now an instructor can teach more than one course. Let’s say a teacher takes a class in Statistics and also in Calculus.

As a student in the Mathematics department, you can enroll in both courses. Therefore, each university course can have any number of students. Here an important point to keep in mind is that a particular course can have only one instructor to avoid overlaps.

Student database management

Similarly, you can do a student record keeping project. The database would contain general student information (such as name, address, contact information, year of admission, courses, etc.), attendance file, grades or results file, fee file, scholarship file, etc. An automated student database streamlines the college administration process to a considerable degree.

Twitter flagged nearly all of US President Donald Trump’s tweets on Saturday as he kept making “potentially misleading claims about an election” despite Democratic candidate Joe Biden winning the presidential race.

The president tweeted that “tens of thousands of votes were illegally received after 8:00 p.m. Tuesday, Election Day, totally and easily changing the results in Pennsylvania and some other thin states.

He also stated that “thousands of votes were not allowed to BE OBSERVED” illegally, and said that “bad things happened” during a time when “LEGAL TRANSPARENCY was not allowed in a cruel and cruel way.”

Later, Twitter tagged a fifth tweet in which Trump claimed he had won the election “by a long shot” with the warning “official sources may not have called the race when this was tweeted” which brought people to the news sources on the latest election results.

A Twitter spokesperson told The Verge that the platform placed warnings on all three tweets and a quote-tweet “in line with its Civic Integrity Policy, and as is standard with this warning, we will significantly restrict interactions on these Tweets.”

One tweet that was not flagged was where Trump announced a “lawyer press conference” at 11:30 a.m. ET in Philadelphia.

Previously, during the vote count that began on November 3, Trump tweeted or retweeted nearly 37 times, and Twitter marked 13 of those tweets.

Of those disclaimers, 12 indicated that “some or all of the content” about the election in the president’s tweet is “disputed” and possibly “misleading.”

Twitter is out of control, made possible by the gift of the Section 230 government!” Trump said in a tweet.

United Arab Emirates and Israel to sign agreements related to aviation, investment security, science and technology.
The visit of a United Arab Emirates delegation to Israel has been accused by Palestinian officials of being “shameful”.

The delegation was welcomed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Kofi Ashkenazi and Finance Minister Israel Gaddafi at Ben Gurion Airport on Tuesday.
Israeli organizers said the five-hour visit would be limited to an airport near Tel Aviv due to corona virus concerns, which comes after the two countries signed an agreement at the White House last month to normalize relations.

The visit will see the signing of several agreements.


US election – Facebook and Twitter block links to a controversial article criticizing Biden

Wasel Abu Youssef, an executive member of the Palestine Liberation Organization, said the visit would only confirm Israeli forces’ crimes against the Palestinians.

“The bilateral agreements announced today, both the coming and going delegates, provide an aggression to expand its aggression and crimes against the Palestinian people and to increase its antagonism and arrogance,” Youssef said.
Speaking in Ramallah on the Israeli-occupied West Bank, he said the comments came as Israel was expanding its illegal settlement efforts.

In the besieged Gaza Strip, Hamas spokesman Hashim Qassem said: “Such a visit would encourage the occupation to continue to gradually annex the West Bank.”

On social media, Palestinians have denied the “double standards” of the visa exemption rule for Emirati citizens, noting that they are not allowed to move freely within the occupied Palestinian territories.
Under Israel’s color-coded identification system, Palestinians in the occupied West Bank are not allowed to travel into the Gaza Strip, and vice versa. If Palestinian Jerusalems live in other occupied territories, their residence rights will be revoked.

With more than six million Palestinian refugees scattered around the world, Israel has not been allowed to return to their homeland even for a single visit.
The Palestinian leadership has described the normalization agreements between the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, respectively, as “stabbing in the back” and betraying the cause.

According to Hend Al-Otaiba, Director of Strategic Communications at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, the delegation was led by Minister of Finance Obaid Al-Dyer and Minister of Economy Abdullah bin Touk Al-Marri.

According to the Israeli government, the two sides will sign agreements on aviation, investment security and science and technology.

As their economies have been hit hard by the corona virus epidemic, the United Arab Emirates and Israel expect a quick dividend from their normalization agreement, which has broken the Arab consensus for years that there should be no ties with Israel until it makes peace with the Palestinians.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has said that the two countries have agreed to a visa-free travel arrangement, making Emirati citizens number one in the Arab world, which does not require Israeli entry visas.

The two governments are set to sign an agreement authorizing 28 commercial flights a week between the countries, an Israeli Ministry of Transportation official said.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Munuchin, who attended a business dinner with Emirati and Israeli officials in Abu Dhabi on Monday, accompanied the delegation on an Etihad Airways flight.

He had earlier held talks with senior Emirati officials on “promising opportunities for cooperation between the two countries,” according to the UAE’s official WAM news agency.

On September 15, the United Arab Emirates and Israel signed a US brokerage agreement, the first such agreement with the Gulf state.

Following a similar US brokerage agreement, Bahrain followed suit and entered into an agreement known as the Abraham Accords.

Following the Israeli peace agreement with Egypt in 1979 and the 1994 agreement with Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are the third and fourth Arab countries to normalize relations with Israel.

7 Scariest Horror Movies on Netflix to Lose Yourself In

With speculation looming that Samsung might launch its S21 series in January, we naturally hope to get more details on upcoming flagships. Well, we got it thanks to the latest set of renders from @onleaks that give us our first look at the Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra. Additionally, the source supports the rumors of the January release.

Both phones come with centered punch holes like their predecessors, with the S21 sporting a 6.2 “flat panel, while the Ultra is between 6.7 and 6.9” with an even more pronounced curvature.

On the back, both phones come with a radically different design. The S21’s camera bulge has grown compared to the S20 and now wraps around the frame of the device. We have three cameras stacked vertically, while the flash is now separated from the camera bulge.

Elsewhere, the design remains largely unchanged down to the button locations. We can detect holes for two microphones on the top and the indicated dimensions of the phone are 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm (without the camera bumper).

The S21 Ultra has an even more substantial camera bump around its back with four arranged lenses. Like the Vanilla S21, it wraps around the side of the phone with the frame extending to blend in.

The dimensions listed for the S21 Ultra are 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm, while the camera bump adds another 2mm to the overall thickness. The alleged addition of an S-Pen seems to be almost confirmed as wrong.

In addition to the new versions, both the S21 + and its Ultra counterpart were found in China’s 3C certification database. The only useful information from the listings is that both phones will come with a 25W load.


The upcoming Galaxy S models will feature an “EP-TA800” charger which was also confirmed last week when we saw the Galaxy S21 listed by 3C with the same charger.

Thailand’s government banned gatherings of more than five people on Thursday amid escalating three-month protests that have targeted King Maha Vajiralongkorn and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

How did the protests start?

The anti-government protests emerged last year after the courts banned the most vocal party that opposes the government of former junta leader Prayut Chan-o-cha. After a pause during measures to stop the spread of the new coronavirus, protests resumed in mid-July, pushing for the removal of Prayut, a new constitution, and an end to harassment of activists.

Some protesters went further with a list of 10 demands to reform the monarchy, demands that were hailed by tens of thousands of people at a rally in September. The protesters say they are not seeking to end the monarchy, only to reform it, but conservatives are horrified by such attacks on an institution that the constitution says is “enthroned in a position of revered worship.”

What is the government doing?

As of Thursday, the government had said that the protests would be tolerated but that they must respect the law. That changed suddenly after he accused mocking protesters of obstructing Queen Suthida’s motorcade and when thousands gathered at Government House to demand Prime Minister Prayut’s removal.

It imposed emergency measures prohibiting gatherings of more than five people in Bangkok, banned the publication of news or information online that could harm national security, and freed the police to arrest anyone linked to the protests.

Shortly after the measures were imposed, riot police expelled the protesters from Government House and at least three protest leaders were arrested.

What does the palace say?

The Royal Palace has not commented on the protests and demands for reform despite repeated requests.

Who are the protesters?

The majority are students and youth and there is no general leader. Key groups include the Free Youth Movement, which was behind the first major protest in July, and the United Front of Thammasat and Demonstration, a group of students from Bangkok’s Thammasat University, which has championed calls for reform of the monarchy. . Then there’s the Bad Student high school student movement, which also seeks education reform.

Most of the protest leaders are 20 years old, although one of the most prominent figures, human rights lawyer Arnon Nampa, is 36 years old.

What real reforms do the protesters want?

The protesters want to reverse a 2017 surge in the King’s constitutional powers, made a year after he succeeded his late father, the widely revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Pro-democracy activists say Thailand is receding from the constitutional monarchy established when absolute royal rule ended in 1932. They say the monarchy is too close to the military and argues that this has undermined democracy.

Freedom thailand protest

The protesters also seek the removal of the lèsemajesté law against insulting the King. They want the king to relinquish the personal control he assumed over a palace fortune estimated at tens of billions of dollars, and some army units.

Why else are they unhappy?

Protesters complain that the king endorsed Prayut’s prime ministerial post after last year’s elections that, according to opposition figures, were designed to keep his hands in power. Prayut, who as head of the army led a coup in 2014, says the elections were fair.

The protesters have expressed their anger that the king spends much of his time in Europe. They have also questioned the expense of the Palace and the lifestyle of the king, who has been married four times and took a royal consort last year.

What do the laws of LèseMajesté mean?

The monarchy is protected by Section 112 of the Penal Code, which says that whoever defames, insults, or threatens the king, queen, heir or regent will be imprisoned for three to 15 years.

In June, Prayut said that the law was no longer being applied due to “the mercy of Her Majesty.” The Royal Palace has never ruled on this.

Human rights groups say, opponents of the government, including more than a dozen protest leaders, have recently been indicted under other laws, such as anti-sedition and cybercrime.

The government has said that it does not target opponents, but that it is the responsibility of the police to enforce the law.

Also Read, US election – Facebook and Twitter block links to a controversial article criticizing Biden

Facebook and Twitter made the choice to limit links to a brand new York Post article criticizing Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday, in a very move that President Donald Trump and conservatives called “censorship.”

In a story titled “Smoking Gun Email Reveals How Hunter Biden Introduced Ukrainian Businessman to His Father VP,” the big apple Post reported that he had obtained a computer abandoned by Biden’s son Hunter, linking the previous vice chairman to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, where Hunter served as a member.

“So terrible that Facebook and Twitter removed the story from the ‘Smoking Gun’ emails associated with Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The Trump campaign issued an announcement saying the emails were proof that Biden “lied to the American people” about his son’s business.

Joe Biden has denied such involvement. Experts also say the allegations are false and questions are raised about the origin of the article.

As the Biden campaign denied that it had known the businessman in question, Burisma board adviser Vadym Pozharskyi, Facebook and Twitter placed restrictions on links to the article, saying there have been doubts about its veracity.

“This is a component of our standard process to scale back the spread of misinformation,” said Facebook spokesman Andy Stone. “I want to form it clear that this story is eligible for Facebook’s third-party data verification partners to verify. Meanwhile, we are reducing their distribution on our platform, ”said Stone.

Twitter said it absolutely was limiting the spread of the article thanks to questions about the “origins of the materials” included within the article.

Users who attempted to share the article received a warning message that their request couldn’t be completed “because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as potentially harmful.” those that tried to click on a link to the article also received a warning.

The big apple Post later reported that his main Twitter account had been blocked because his articles about Biden broke the network’s rules against the “distribution of pirated material.”

Conservatives “condemn censorship”
The personal Twitter account of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was also blocked after she shared a link to the story.

“Censorship must be condemned,” she wrote from her government’s Twitter page.

Republican Senator Josh Hawley, in an exceeding letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, said the “seemingly selective” blocking suggests “bias on the part of Facebook,” while the Post called social media “propaganda machines. “in an article.

Hawley cited data showing that employees at Facebook and five other tech companies have donated nearly $ 5 million (€ 4.3 million) to Biden’s campaign and just $ 239,000 to Trump.

The story centered on an April 2015 email, during which Vadym Pozharskyi from Burisma thanks Hunter for inviting him to a gathering in Washington together with his father. However, there was no indication of when the meeting was scheduled or if it happened.

“We have reviewed Joe Biden’s office hours from the instant and no meeting, because the Post alleges, ever befell,” Biden’s campaign said.
