- ‘Alpha Mouse’ bids farewell to masculinity
By Lily Janiak - Tuesday Sep 26, 2017
Somehow, in 2017, it’s still not universally acknowledged that women suffer discrimination. But let’s say that you’re a man with at least brain-stem-level observation skills and concede this point. How can you best support an oppressed group without putting words in their mouths, without making yourself the center of the story? That’s the question James Graham Dance Theatre tackles in “Alpha Mouse,” a weaving together of dance and movement and an expansion of ideas Graham explored in “Open Your Gate” as part of 2016’s “Trolley Dances.” An ensemble of 14 explores female stereotypes, scours a woman of the grime of sexism and enacts a “Eulogy for Masculinity.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — The malware entered the North Carolina transmission plant's computer network via email last August, just as the criminals wanted, spreading like a virus and threatening to lock up the production line until the company paid a ransom.AW North Carolina stood to lose $270,000 in revenue, plus wages for idled employees, for every hour the factory wasn't shipping its crucial auto parts to nine Toyota car and truck plants across North America, said John Peterson, the plant's information technology manager.Manufacturers, government and financial firms are now the top targets globally for illicit intrusions by criminals, foreign espionage agencies and others up to no good, according to a report this spring by NTT Security.A survey of nearly 3,000 corporate cybersecurity executives in 13 countries last year by Cisco Systems Inc. found about one out of four manufacturing organizations reported cyberattacks that cost them money in the previous 12 months.Since 2015, U.S. manufacturers considered "critical" to the economy and to normal modern life, like makers of autos and aviation parts, have been the main targets of cyberattacks — outstripping energy, communications and other critical infrastructure, according to Department of Homeland Security incident response data.The threat of computer code tailored to hit specific targets has been around since researchers in 2010 discovered Stuxnet, malware apparently designed to sabotage Iran's nuclear program by causing centrifuge machines to spin out of control.
