BBB warns consumers on scams for coronavirus prevention

BBB warns consumers on scams for coronavirus prevention

first_imgConsumers need to be skeptical of emails and websites promoting coronavirus prevention products and tips. Phishing emails are unsolicited messages that request personal information or money from the intended victim and are expected to rise significantly as the virus spreads. They often are a precursor to identity theft. Media reports on the outbreak of coronavirus in the Wuhan region of China already have prompted a social media scam targeting Chinese-Australian citizens in Wuhan with a phony online evacuation form, according to a report by Australia’s ABC news outlet. During the 2009 swine flu epidemic, McAfee Avert Labs, an online security company, reported that messages promoting virus treatment and prevention, or otherwise sensationalizing the outbreak, accounted for 2 percent of all spam sent in the days following the first media reports of the outbreak. And various websites promoted “survival guides,” masks, prevention tips and treatments, most of them of little value in fighting flu. Free information on the virus, the outbreak, and preventive measures is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. BBB offers the following advice to avoid coronavirus-related scams: Avoid opening e-mail from an unknown source. Do not click on links in the body of the e-mail or open any attachments. Instead, delete the e-mail. If you suspect that it is a scam, report it to BBB Scam Tracker. Disregard online offers for vaccinations. Vaccinations against coronavirus do not exist. For more information on the virus and updates on progress in fighting the outbreak, go to the CDC’s website at cdc.gov. Make sure the antivirus and anti-malware programs on your computer are up to date and all operating system security patches have been installed. If your computer becomes infected as the result of a spam e-mail about coronavirus, you can report it to the Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov.last_img read more

Fifa World Cup FIFA World Cup 2018: Januzaj stunner sees Belgium beat England to top spot

Fifa World Cup FIFA World Cup 2018: Januzaj stunner sees Belgium beat England to top spot

first_imgKaliningrad: A brilliant strike by Adnan Januzaj lit up an otherwise insipid clash as Belgium beat England 1-0 to secure top spot in World Cup Group G in Kaliningrad on Thursday.Januzaj’s superb second-half goal sent Belgium into a last 16 clash with Japan while England will now advance to a second round meeting with Colombia on Tuesday.By finishing second in the group, England have though avoided a loaded top half of the draw containing past winners Brazil, France, Argentina and Uruguay as well as European champions Portugal.The fact second place in the group was no disaster seemed to be a big factor in both coaches’ team selection with their places in the last 16 already secured.Southgate made eight changes with Belgian boss Roberto Martinez going one better as only Thibaut Courtois and Dedryck Boyata retained their places from the 5-2 thrashing of Tunisia.Star Belgian duo Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne joined England captain Harry Kane in watching from the sidelines and their ability to thrill was badly missed as locals in the crowd turned on both sides with jeers and chants of “Russia”.Youri Tielemans did test Jordan Pickford with a fiercely struck effort just six minutes in that forced the Everton stopper into his best save of the World Cup so far.Moments later Pickford let a Michy Batshuayi effort squeeze past him and was rescued by Gary Cahill’s goal-line clearance.After an early burst, though, Belgium seemed more adept at picking up yellow cards that would have seen them finish behind England if the game ended in a draw due to a poorer disciplinary record.Tielemans and Leander Dendoncker both went into the book early to cheers from the Belgian fans.Six of England’s eight goals against Tunisia and Panama to reach the knockout stages came from set-pieces and they again proved the Three Lions greatest threat in the first-half as Cahill and Ruben Loftus-Cheek headed just wide.Marcus Rashford had the opportunity to put serious pressure on Raheem Sterling for his place in the side for the last 16 after two disappointing performances from the Manchester City winger.But unlike his substitute appearance against Tunisia, Rashford failed to further his case for a start and fired well off target when presented with a shooting chance from the edge of the box just after half-time.Januzaj suddenly sparked the game into life moments later when he twisted and turned inside the England box before curling a wonderful strike into the top corner.Rashford had by a distance England’s best chance 25 minutes from time, but again slotted wide with just Courtois to beat.Belgium were given a major boost ahead of the knockout stages when Captain Vincent Kompany made his return from injury for the final 15 minutes.Southgate didn’t even turn to Kane in search for an equaliser, instead introducing Danny Welbeck to ensure every outfield player in his squad featured across the three group games.And Welbeck nearly earned a point eight minutes from time when his goal bound effort was deflected just wide by Fellaini.

No. 1 USC finishes perfect regular season

No. 1 USC finishes perfect regular season

first_imgThe undefeated regular season is complete, but for the No. 1 USC men’s water polo team, its biggest challenge lies ahead.The Trojans (24-0, 8-0) used two clutch goals to pull ahead late on Saturday, hanging on to win 10-9 over crosstown rival UCLA (24-3, 6-1) during a rare night game at McDonald’s Swim Stadium.“We really didn’t have any breathing room the whole game,” senior driver Michael Rosenthal said, “but we came out with a win so that’s all that matters.”Rosenthal’s hat trick led the scoring effort for the Trojans, while junior driver Nikola Vavic, senior two-meter Matt Burton and junior utility Mace Rapsey added two goals apiece.“He [Rosenthal] hadn’t been as aggressive as he should lately, so it was great to see his performance,” USC coach Jovan Vavic said. “He’s got great confidence now.”The first half was a back-and-forth affair, with the Trojans breaking away from an early 3-3 tie to take a 6-4 halftime lead. The Trojans made it 7-4 just 22 seconds into the third period with a flip shot from Vavic. But No. 2 UCLA wasn’t done just yet.The Bruins scored three straight goals, two of them by leading scorer Paul Reynolds, and tied the match at 7 before Burton got one back for the Trojans before the end of the third.Then, UCLA got a power-play strike from defender Chris Wendt to even the match and put USC in an unfamiliar position.For the first time in 15 games, the Trojans were tied in the fourth period. That didn’t last, as Rosenthal skipped a shot under Rapacz’s outstretched arm to give the Trojans a 9-8 lead.“I just had to take a shot,” Rosenthal said. “I looked the goalie off a little bit and put it in.”Later in the period, a pinpoint Rosenthal cross and resounding Rapsey strike later, and the Trojans were up 10-8.“It felt great,” Rapsey said. “It was such a good pass so I could just pop it in.”UCLA’s Daniel Lenhart quickly responded to make it 10-9 with 28 seconds left, but the Trojans kept possession for the rest of the contest.“When they tied the game, we really had to buckle down and find a way to make sure we got stops most importantly, as well as find a way to score a goal,” Rosenthal said. “I’m sure glad we did.”Vavic, though pleased, pointed out areas in need of improvement.“We gave up too many goals,” Vavic said. “There were situations where we didn’t block because our blockers didn’t cover their space.”The win clinches USC’s regular season conference title, giving it the top seed for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation championships, where it will face UC Santa Barbara on Friday.last_img read more

Sun Devils scorch Trojans on last second Hail Mary

Sun Devils scorch Trojans on last second Hail Mary

first_imgIn a Saturday evening at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum marked with sloppy play and good fortune for USC, the Trojans’ luck ran out with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. With less than three minutes remaining in the game, Arizona State quarterback Mike Bercovici scored a quick touchdown, got the ball back with 23 seconds remaining and threw a Hail Mary pass as time expired to pull out a shocking upset of the No. 16 USC Trojans, 38-34, before a stunned crowd of more than 77,000.Lost in the lights – Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong catches the most important of his three touchdown receptions Saturday — a 46 yard Hail Mary pass from ASU backup quarterback Mike Bercovic that gave the Sun Devils the victory as time expired. — Tony Zhou | Daily TrojanWith the game favoring the Trojans 34-32 and seven seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Bercovici launched the ball 46 yards into a sea of cardinal-clad USC defenders and essentially prayed that his receiver came down with the ball. Bercovici’s prayer was answered — ASU wide receiver Jaelen Strong caught the ball right outside the end zone and slipped past a dumbstruck group of USC defenders into the end zone.“It was an awkward Hail Mary,” said USC head coach Steve Sarkisian. “The ball floated back to the middle of the field and it was a heck of a play by [Strong] tracking the ball and making the play on it.”For ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici, it was a triumphant bounce-back after a rough outing against UCLA last week, where the second-string quarterback managed 488 yards through the air but fumbled the ball and threw two interceptions, one of which was returned 95 yards for a touchdown. Bercovici’s efforts come after the Sun Devils suffered a huge blow with the loss of starting quarterback Taylor Kelly to injury.After their loss to UCLA last week, the Sun Devils fell out of the national rankings and the national playoff conversation. ASU head coach Todd Graham, however, kept faith in his second-string quarterback — and credited his talented backup signal caller for staying with the program.“For all those young kids out there, everyone tells [backup quarterbacks] to transfer or quit because you’re not getting to play,” Graham said. “Look at Mike Bercovici. He didn’t quit. He chose to stay a Sun Devil. He would’ve missed out on the greatest moment of his football career if he had transferred. I’m so proud of him.”What eventually became Bercovici’s finest moment thus far as a Sun Devil actually began as the quarterback’s less-than-perfect throw.“I’ve never been able to throw a Hail Mary before,” Bercovici said. “I didn’t think I threw it well. It looked like a duck. But my God, I didn’t know what happened, to be honest.”Bercovici didn’t throw too many ducks en route to 510 yards and 5 touchdowns, but those numbers were also due in one large part to the efforts of ASU wide receiver Jaelen Strong, who hauled in 10 receptions for 202 yards and 3 touchdowns, including the game winning Hail Mary.“I saw the ball in the air and the first thing I thought was, ‘I’m going to get this,’” Strong said. “At first I thought, ‘I don’t know if I can get to it,’ but I put my head down and kept running and got it.”Strong was also complimentary of his teammates, eschewing any notion that he had won the game by himself.“If [ASU running back DJ Foster] doesn’t make that TD, we don’t have that chance. If [ASU wide receiver Cameron Smith] doesn’t make that TD, we don’t have that chance. If [ASU wide receiver Gary Chambers] doesn’t make that big play to set us up for the Hail Mary, we don’t have that chance,” Strong said.For USC, it will be the “ifs” that torture them after Saturday’s game. The game was characterized by missed opportunities for both teams. Bercovici overthrew two would-be touchdowns to Foster and Strong, the latter on a post route with virtually no Trojan defender ahead of him. USC’s defense looked confused on the last play of the game, and Sarkisian admitted in a post-game press conference that the Trojans were attempting to prepare for both a Hail Mary or a short completion and field goal situation, despite there being seven seconds remaining in the game and ASU having exhausted all of its time outs. The Hail Mary wasn’t USC’s only missed opportunity: Earlier in the game, redshirt junior quarterback Cody Kessler had a drive cut short and missed out on a potential touchdown both due to dropped passes from sophomore wide receiver Darreus Rogers.On the defensive side of the ball, the Trojans were effective against the run, holding ASU’s star running back DJ Foster and the rest of the Sun Devil rushing attack to 31 total yards. USC’s game plan appeared to dare ASU’s fledgling backup quarterback to attack through the air, and Bercovici made the Trojans’ secondary pay.The Trojans were not without some lucky breaks of their own; USC’s drive in the 2nd quarter was assisted by some curious refereeing. Redshirt junior punter Kris Albarado fell on his own after a kick on fourth down and managed to get a penalty against ASU to extend a drive that would eventually lead to a touchdown from redshirt junior back Javorius “Buck” Allen. That drive shifted the game’s momentum in favor of the Trojans, who would have narrowly escaped with the victory if not for ASU’s last second touchdown.Allen turned in another big performance, despite getting off to a slow start. The starting tailback had 40 yards on 14 carries for a subpar 2.7 yards per carry average at the half, but quickly turned things around to finish with 236 total yards from scrimmage (150 rushing yards and 86 yards receiving) and two rushing touchdowns.Kessler attempted 28 passes by halftime, and finished the game having completed 28 of his career-high 45 attempts for 273 yards and a season-low 62 percent completion percentage. No USC receiver broke 100 yards receiving, as ASU dropped multiple defenders into coverage schemes designed to prevent big plays. The Trojans didn’t help their own cause much, as penalties were again an issue for USC — the Trojans racked up 9 total infractions for 60 yards.The Trojans will have to regroup quickly as they head out to Tucson, Arizona on Saturday, Oct. 11 to face the Wildcats, who themselves are coming off a thrilling upset of Oregon on Thursday. The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN2.last_img read more
