5 DAYS ‘TIL RELEASE
Seasons 1-7 streaming now on Foxtel
Beloved by fans and applauded by critics, acclaimed prison drama Wentworth season 8 returns for an extended sentence this Tuesday July 28 at 8.30pm on FOX SHOWCASE.
The inmates and guards of Wentworth have loved and lost a lot over seven seasons, from brutal attacks in the shower block, ramps, lockdowns, drug use, body bags, love stories, riots, fires and a deadly siege – whatever you do don’t touch the panic button, Wentworth is about to head into unchartered territory when the Freak returns in one of the most twisted plot lines yet.
When the prison gates open on season 8 two new heritage characters arrive on the prison bus, Lou ‘Fingers’ Kelly (Kate Box) and Reb Keane (Zoe Terakes); also entering the building is new General Manager Ann Reynolds (Jane Hall). In episode three, young British hacktivist Judy Bryant (Vivienne Awosoga) joins the inmates and immediately wins the support of the women, and later in the series new character Sheila Bausch (Marta Dusseldorp) enters the compound on remand for mass murder.
Other cast members include: Leah Purcell (Rita Connors), Pamela Rabe (Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson), Kate Atkinson (Vera Bennett), Katrina Milosevic (Sue ‘Boomer’ Jenkins), Robbie Magasiva (Will Jackson), Kate Jenkinson (Allie Novak), Bernard Curry (Jake Stewart), Rarriwuy Hick (Ruby Mitchell) and Susie Porter (Marie Winter) along with support cast Jacquie Brennan (Linda Miles), David de Lautour (Dr. Greg Miller) and Louisa Mignone (Zaina Saad).

D-Link A/NZ launches Nuclias Cloud Managed Network Solution hosted in Australia
Feature-rich cloud-managed Networking Solution designed for MSPs
SYDNEY, 7 May 2020 – D-Link A/NZ has launched Nuclias Cloud, its new cloud-managed networking solution developed specifically for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) which will enable them to help small businesses through to very large enterprises remotely set up, configure, monitor, troubleshoot, and manage their customer’s network infrastructure, including Wi-Fi Access Points and Network Switches, across multiple sites anytime, anywhere.
Nuclias Cloud is available to MSPs on a month-to-month basis with no lock-in contract, unlike most other solutions in this space. In addition, to help MSPs during these challenging COVID-19 times, D-Link A/NZ has suspended all monthly billing for both new and existing Nuclias Cloud MSPs for at least Q2 2020.
Key benefits of Nuclias Cloud for MSPs:-
· Regular revenue stream: Nuclias Cloud is a service platform that allows MSPs to bill their customers in the fashion that they prefer whether upfront, monthly, annually or whichever combination they prefer. MSPs are charged monthly for usage in arrears only, versus competitors’ long-term contracts, freeing up cash flow that can otherwise be put to good use.
· Month-to-month pricing: No lock-in contracts, and easy to manage cash flow forecasts
· Lower overheads: Easy to install, Nuclias Cloud can easily be managed remotely online
· Elevate your offering: Nuclias Cloud proactively enables you to offer a better service
· Reliability and reputation: Nuclias Cloud offers high-performance access points and cloud-managed switches which are managed by a centralized cloud-based control system, deployed on over 50,000 cloud-managed customer networks around the world
· Fewer cost variables and competitively priced: Nuclias Cloud has no long-term costs, no hidden extras, and no additional license fees which make for predictable cost management
· Easy to implement, maintain, and grow: Easy for the customer or the MSP to grow and expand with linear fixed costs.
D-Link ANZ Managing Director, Graeme Reardon said, “MSPs need a powerful and scalable solution with which they can manage their customer’s networks from a single pane of glass, and Nuclias Cloud provides exactly that. With the flexibility of no lock-in contracts, local stock, zero-touch provisioning and an intuitive, scalable dashboard that provides the MSP a view across their entire customer network, all whilst being hosted locally in Australia, Nuclias Cloud provides MSPs with a simple choice – Pay multi-year licensing fees upfront out of their own cash flow to their existing vendors, or investigate a move to a clean-sheet designed cloud solution that has been successfully deployed in some of the largest telcos in the world, giving them the flexibility that MSPs deserve.”
A significant number of MSPs have already chosen to use and resell the Nuclias Cloud Management solution in Australia due to this flexibility, ease of scalability and simple, but compelling, resale benefits.
With Nuclias Cloud’s inherent zero-touch provisioning and scalable architecture, MSPs can easily deploy and streamline networks to support an unlimited number of devices across multiple sites. Once set up, administrators can manage the network from the online portal or dedicated App, using either or both to capture and analyze advanced traffic reports and real-time insights into every connected device.
Additional features include secure role-based administration system, auditable change logs, authentication via captive portal, 802.1x, RADIUS server, automated network monitoring, and Facebook and Google login support for guest Wi-Fi access.
The Nuclias Cloud range of hardware solutions has been extended to include high-performance Gigabit smart-managed switches with optional PoE and fiber connectivity as well as Wi-Fi Access Points featuring MU-MIMO, PoE support, and up to 3×3 concurrent dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. D-Link cameras and routers will also become part of the Nuclias Cloud solution in 2020.

Avast supports COVID-19 response initiatives
Avast provides technical expertise and support for front line workers; $25 million donated by the Avast Foundation to research initiatives to defeat COVID-19
Contributions to the COVID-19 Therapeutics Accelerator, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other donors, and to CEPI will help accelerate treatments, and the containment of the disease through vaccines
Avast has always been driven by a mission to keep people safe, and we are deeply concerned about the escalation of the global COVID-19 health crisis. Over the last few months, our Avast colleagues worldwide have been volunteering their time and technical skills to support local community relief efforts and the Avast Foundation has donated funds to a number of important relief causes. And while I’m hugely grateful for these contributions and the enthusiasm and passion they are demonstrating, we felt that there was more that Avast could do to help.
I think most of us are now feeling the immediate effects of this crisis with social distancing and lockdown disruptions, but the global long-term impact on our healthcare and social system — and our entire economy — cannot yet be measured. On one hand, people on the front lines continue risking their health to keep our world moving and to save the lives of others, so immediate relief programs remain critical. On the other hand, as the pandemic persists and the knock-on effects on our society continue to develop, longer-term thinking is absolutely essential.
And it was exactly this realization that has directed our steps when thinking how we could help further. As a tech company, we are naturally drawn to looking at initiatives where research and innovation can drive real impact. We believe that a rigorous, scientific approach provides the best exit strategy for this crisis and only a prudent, systematic and well-funded approach to testing, treatment and vaccine development will lead to the minimization of lockdowns and disruptions, and ultimately, save lives.
After a careful analysis of existing programs and initiatives committed to COVID-19, we were encouraged to see that we’re not the only ones thinking this way. Namely, we found that Wellcome-coordinated COVID-Zero Coalition was very aligned with our vision and to that end, we have decided to join it and support its strategic focus.
The Coalition is focused on raising funds to enable COVID-19 response through the pursuit of testing and treatments, and for preventing the spread of the virus through vaccine development. That is a very bold and compelling program which is estimated to require at least $8 billion in funding just in its first stage. We are proud and honored that the Avast Foundation is donating $20 million to help accelerate its progress.
More specifically, we are contributing to two research and development initiatives referenced in the Coalition’s call to action: the COVID-19 Therapeutics Accelerator for development of testing and treatments, and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) for the development of vaccines.
Of the total donation amount, the Avast Foundation is donating $12 million to the COVID-19 Therapeutics Accelerator, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Wellcome and Mastercard, to accelerate the development of rapid testing and treatments. There is currently no approved treatment for COVID-19. I am personally vested in this initiative, and am honored to take up an active role on the Foundation’s funder’s board for Avast to provide whatever support we can.
The remaining $8 million will go to CEPI, the world’s leading organization in vaccine research and development for pandemics. We were blown away by CEPI’s approach to parallelize the development of the vaccine with 9 different tracks to date – a very costly approach, but one that maximizes the odds of finding the vaccine in the shortest possible time. CEPI’s ambition is to develop a safe, effective, and globally accessible COVID-19 vaccine within an accelerated 12-18 month timeline.
We are keen to follow the progress of both of these organizations over the next few months; they offer fresh hope and we are confident in their discovery of an effective treatment.
In addition to that, the Avast Foundation is committing $5 million to further COVID-19 response initiatives. These include our ongoing support for Folding@home’s supercomputing program which seeks to find a cure for the virus, and our contribution in the development and production of a new type of lung ventilators. The current list of our COVID-19 related initiatives can be found on our Response page.
We are all really excited to actively join the fight and devote our resources to defeat this nasty virus. While the situation is severe, it is wonderful to see people working together so well, and we are hopeful that our steps will also motivate others to support game-changing initiatives such as these. What I can say is that this is just the start of our involvement in managing this crisis and you will hear more from us in this regard soon.
I wish you all good health and stay strong. Together, we can do it!
AVG survey reveals extent of Australia’s ‘Sharenting’ habits”
Sharenting is yet another in the long list of new terms being spawned by social media. The act of sharenting involves sharing – or, in many cases, over-sharing – images of one’s child or children across social media platforms, and the ensuing questions about the child’s privacy.
Of course, children under a certain age are more or less oblivious to their parents’ social media activities, but once they become cognisant of their rights in later years, there may very well be issues around a perceived invasion of their personal digital space. This extends to the more sinister issue of personal safety as well, since exposing young children to social media inevitably leaves an indelible digital footprint which, in extreme cases, may be used to harm that child online or even lead to them being stalked or groomed, especially in later years when the child is active online but not yet fully aware of internet safety.
AVG, the global internet security and privacy organisation, has conducted research into the issue of ‘sharenting’, and published findings specific to Australia.
Looking at the details, it becomes obvious that many Australians are happy to engage their children with social media from a young age. 25.35 percent of respondents answered “yes” when asked if they “have posted a photo of (their) child to my social media, who at the time was under the age of three, without blurring or covering up their face.” A further 31.14 percent had done the same for a child under the age of eighteen.
3.99 percent of Australian respondents had gone to the extent of creating a dedicated social media profile for their unborn child – interestingly this represents 8.14 percent of male respondents, but only 1.82 percent of females – the biggest disparity between the sexes recorded in the report.
Furthermore, 7.98 percent of Australians have created a social media site for their child while he or she is under the age of three, and again the activity was performed predominantly by males, with 12.21 percent having made their child a social media site, compared with 5.78 percent of females.
When it comes to social responsibility around the sharing of images, 14.53 percent of males and 7.6 percent of females had posted an image of their child on social media without asking for permission, but blurred out the child’s face.
When dealing with other people’s children, it seems that Australians are more cautious about the images they share, with 27.35 percent of respondents claiming that they always ask for permission from the child’s parents before posting an image of their child to social media if there are other children in the background, or visible in the shot.
A significant number of parents also consult their children directly before posting images, with 18.76 percent suggesting that they always discuss with their children before publishing pictures of them. Males tend to be more active in seeking their child’s permission, with 24.42 percent of respondents in this category stating they seek permission, compared to 15.81 percent of females.
Countering the number of parents who actively engage their children in the social media landscape in Australia, there is still a fair proportion of regular social media users who never include images of their children. 27.35 percent of respondents stated that while they use social media themselves, they never involve their children.
