Some insurance companies cited “act of war” exclusions to try to avoid covering the damage of a Russian cyberattack against Ukraine in 2017 that rippled outward internationally, causing billions of dollars in damage. Now, as U.S. officials warn of similar hacks, insurers might not be able to invoke that protection. In November, Lloyd’s Market Association, a trade group, published four first-of-their kind recommendations for how insurers can articulate act-of-war exclusions that cover hacks. Some cyber-specific insurers hope their in-house security expertise can help businesses avoid disruptive hacks and subsequent claims. Policies offered by Mr. Motta’s firm exclude acts of war, as designated by a government, but cover cyber terrorism.

“The constant refrain was, ‘We have to do this for Mike,’” Cooke said. Williams asked his subjects to reveal both the procedural “how” and the more emotional “why” of their illicit crafts. “Your back is against the wall; you do what you gotta do,” Williams says in the first episode, about digital con artists and identity thieves. (“If you type in nine digits enough times, eventually you was going to get someone’s Social Security number,” he quips). The three agreed to narrate the rest of the season without payment — the production instead made donations to charities of their choosing.

A Throwback Game for the Big East
  + stars: | 2022-01-25 | by ( Billy Witz | ) www.nytimes.com   time to read: +1 min
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. — Back in the Big East Conference’s formative years, when Georgetown, Syracuse, St. John’s, Villanova and their brethren were just getting to develop enmity toward one another, men’s basketball games were still played in rickety band boxes with warped floors, frothy fans and a regular exchange of sharp elbows. In short order, the nascent conference became the center of the college basketball universe in the early 1980s, with Pearl Washington, Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin becoming household names from Brooklyn to Berkeley thanks to another upstart entity, ESPN. It wasn’t long before the games demanded a bigger stage. So instead of playing in places like McDonough Gym, Manley Fieldhouse, Alumni Hall and the Cat House, the schools rented out N.B.A. arenas — or in Syracuse’s case audaciously built the cavernous Carrier Dome — and planted their postseason tournament flag at Madison Square Garden.

“Put that body back where you hit it,” Annette Santiago allegedly told her son when he showed up at their home, according to prosecutors. His loved ones would learn later in the day that Dymka was the victim of a fatal traffic accident. After allegedly striking Dymka, Santiago drove off but returned to the scene multiple times before he loaded the man’s body into his car, prosecutors said. She went to speak with Santiago and then walked over to the car to see the body, the affidavit says. That’s when she allegedly instructed him to return the dead man to the crash scene, the affidavit says.

Schott AG’s finance chief plans to increase spending this year as the specialty glass and materials manufacturer sees growing demand for its products, including syringes and vials for Covid-19 vaccines. The Mainz, Germany-based company intends to invest €450 million, equivalent to about $510 million, this fiscal year. PREVIEWOther companies that manufacture syringes or vials for Covid-19 vaccines also have expanded their footprint. Becton Dickinson & Co., a Franklin Lakes, N.J.-based medical technology firm, in November said it broke ground for a new $200 million production facility in Zaragoza, Spain, where it will make prefillable syringes. In Israel, early data suggest a fourth vaccine dose can increase antibodies against Covid-19, but not enough to prevent infections from Omicron.

This is particularly true of women who have high anxiety or have experienced pregnancy loss like Ms. Paras. With her other pregnancies, Ms. Paras did receive unsolicited questions and advice. “Especially women of the older generation would ask me questions like, ‘Are you carrying twins?’ ‘Is the baby healthy?’” she said. “People who knew me would bring up my daughter or tell me everything was going to be OK with this pregnancy, when there is no way they could know that.”“Those questions were stressful,” she said. “It was a lot better not having to interact with other people when I was pregnant during the pandemic.”Other pregnant women are happy to keep their pregnancies a secret to avoid judgment from others.

Christina Vance and Greg Winick dressed up as superheroes for their first date at a 2017 Halloween party in Totowa, N.J. She went as Batgirl, he as Batman. A good pair for couples, the costumes also alluded to the strength and resilience that brought each to that moment. “Before we began dating, life had kind of beaten us up,” said Ms. Vance, who teaches English to sophomores and juniors at Mount Olive High School in Flanders, N.J. “We were both in marriages filled with pain and suffering.”“From where both of us were coming from, it felt more like the first day of the rest of our lives together than it did a first date,” she said. Ms. Vance and Mr. Winick met in September 2010 at Central Middle School in Parsippany, N.J., where Mr. Winick teaches English to seventh-graders, and Ms. Vance, then a single mother with a 1-year-old son, worked as a student-teacher in his classroom.

The Growing Risk for Jews Who Show Their Jewishness

It seems that violent attacks on Jews in the U.S. have become a regular occurrence, like natural disasters. Last weekend, a rabbi and three congregants were taken hostage at Congregation Beth Israel, a Reform synagogue near Fort Worth, Texas. After a standoff that lasted more than 10 hours and involved an elite FBI hostage rescue team, the Jews in the synagogue were freed unharmed and the perpetrator, identified by the FBI as Malik Faisal Akram, was killed. As with wildfires or hurricanes, we can search for man-made causes and seek possible remedies. We are tempted to conclude that we are simply never safe, not even in a country as good for Jews as the U.S. has been.

New Jersey now requires Asian American and Pacific Islander history as part of its public school curriculum, the second state in the nation to do so. “It feels like we are fulfilling our slogan, making ourselves visible,” Ilangovan, who is Indian American, told NBC Asian America. “Asian Americans have been battling two pandemics — COVID-19 and hate,” he said. Earlier this month, John C. Yang, the executive director and president of the advocacy group Asian Americans Advancing Justice, said the push for Asian American history is an outgrowth of racial reckoning in the U.S. Ilangovan said she hopes the new law can help make Asian American history accessible to people of all backgrounds and foster a sense of belonging.

Firefighters worked to contain a massive blaze at a pool chemical plant in New Jersey that was burning out of control early Saturday. The building was vacant and being used to store plastics and pallets, as well as chlorine, he said. Lora said the fire had not made it to the main chlorine plant. “If the fire were to hit the main chemical plant, it would obviously create issues beyond what our immediate resources would be able to resolve," Lora said. The blaze near the Passaic River sent smoke into the skyline north of New York City as flames rose above the building.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Biden administration's rule requiring larger businesses to ensure that workers receive the Covid vaccine or wear masks and get tested on a weekly basis. But the court said a separate mandate requiring vaccinations for an estimated 20 million health care workers can be enforced. "As disease and death continue to mount, this court tells the agency that it cannot respond in the most effective way possible. But the Supreme Court said a separate regulation that requires vaccinations for health care workers who treat Medicare and Medicaid patients could be enforced. Two federal appeals courts had blocked enforcement in 24 states, but the requirement went into effect in the remaining 26.

The largest grouping morphs ground up from an orderly grid of right-angled chairs into a wild tangle of potential eye-scratching branches intersecting midair. The show opens amid a storm of debates roiling classrooms over curriculum changes addressing systemic racism and whether to remain open amid the Omicron surge.

Two big freight operators are betting on technology that allows workers to operate forklifts remotely as the distribution sector confronts persistent labor shortages. Operators can switch between forklifts in different locations depending on demand. PREVIEWThe funding comes as investors are plowing billions of dollars into logistics technology aimed at helping businesses blunt supply-chain disruptions and meet strong demand in a tight labor market. Warehouse workers were in short supply before the pandemic. In August, 4.3 million workers quit their jobs, part of what many are calling “the Great Resignation.” Here’s a look into where the workers are going and why.

Charges have been filed against “a number” of New Jersey high school students stemming from an investigation into alleged hazing, authorities said. The incidents, some of which were captured on cellphone video, are said to have occurred in the football team's locker room during September and October. A second investigation unrelated to the hazing in the locker room resulted in additional charges of aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault against one juvenile. I don’t even think this amounts to hazing … these are high school boys screwing around," he said.

“Not at all,” said Anne del Castillo, New York City’s media and entertainment commissioner. But film production has been trickling back for some time, lured by tax incentives and the fact that so many actors, directors and other film professionals live in and around New York. The city has over 250 soundstages — essentially, black boxes in which any sort of scene can be conjured. New York still lags behind Los Angeles in terms of square footage for soundstages but is ahead of Atlanta, according to the real estate services firm CBRE. Netflix, for instance, is planning a major production hub on an old army base in Fort Monmouth, N.J.

James Mtume, the musician, songwriter, producer, bandleader and talk-radio host whose 1983 hit “Juicy Fruit” has been sampled in more than 100 songs, died on Sunday at his home in South Orange, N.J. Mr. Mtume started his career as a jazz percussionist. He was in Miles Davis’s band for the first half of the 1970s, appearing on Davis’s landmark 1972 jazz-funk album “On the Corner” and its successors. But in the late ’70s he pivoted to R&B: He co-wrote hits for Roberta Flack and Stephanie Mills, produced albums and formed a group, Mtume, which had major hits with his songs “Juicy Fruit” and “You, Me and He.” His sparse, sputtering electronic beat for “Juicy Fruit” gained an extensive second life in hip-hop when it was sampled on the debut single by the Notorious B.I.G., “Juicy,” a No. 1 rap hit in 1994.

The Giants have had only five general managers since 1974, a spell of stability and patience illustrated by the four Super Bowl trophies on display at their headquarters in East Rutherford, N.J. But it has been 10 years since their last title — five since their last playoff appearance — and that sliver of time might as well be an epoch in their universe. The day after another fiasco of a Giants season reached its merciful conclusion, with a 22-7 home loss to Washington that dropped their record to 4-13, the team embarked on another overhaul. The Giants announced that their general manager, Dave Gettleman, had retired, but issued no such clarity on the status of the coach, Joe Judge. Judge addressed the team on Monday, as usual, but was not made available to the news media, and the team’s owners did not acknowledge his status beyond a brief allusion in a statement.
