Gwinnett County judge Schrader re-indicted in computer hacking case

Arraignment is set for Dec. 4.

Brian Steel, an attorney representing Schrader, said he thought the charges were “baseless.”

“That indictment can house 1,000 counts,” he said. “She committed absolutely no crime whatsoever.”

The charges relate to Schrader’s decision to connect a device to her work computer, on the county network, after she thought someone was trying to hack her in early 2019.

In the earlier trial, Schrader said she hired private investigator T.J. Ward because the county’s IT department was not taking her seriously. She reportedly feared a courthouse “conspiracy” could be afoot.

A contractor working for Ward, former Forsyth County sheriff’s deputy Frank Karic, subsequently installed a traffic monitoring device on Schrader’s computer. Another contractor — Ed Kramer, the co-founder of pop culture convention DragonCon and a registered sex offender — was then tasked with analyzing the data collected.

The indictment says Schrader gave Karic her password and

‘It Made Me a Little Squeamish’

By the time NBC and MSNBC National Political Correspondent Steve Kornacki sat down with me for a 30-minute Zoom interview on Tuesday, Nov. 10, I was surprised he was still able to sit upright: The 41-year-old had just survived leading the news network’s map board throughout the election night that nearly turned into an election week.

In those five days of uncertainty, between when the polls closed and when we finally knew we’d have a new President-elect, Kornacki stood in front of a digitized Electoral College map carefully calculating how many votes in the latest data drop were going to President Donald Trump’s versus Biden’s totals; explained to anxious viewers why some states, like Pennsylvania, were initially too early to call; and helped quell concerns about why a

How to collaborate without an internet connection: 5 apps to consider

Learn how to edit text, draw, chat, transfer files, and share social posts with apps that support local and peer-to-peer network connections.

Many collaboration apps appropriately handle two network conditions: Online or offline. Google Docs, for example, lets multiple people edit simultaneously online. Additionally, people may choose to edit offline, then rely on the system to sync all edits when re-connected to the internet. Many modern cloud collaboration apps work similarly and allow collaboration defined only in the context of connection to a software maker’s systems over the internet: Are you connected or not?

What’s Hot at TechRepublic

There’s also a third network condition: A local network. If you ever have sent a photo, file, or a link to a person nearby–with Apple’s AirDrop (on iOS or macOS), Microsoft’s Windows Nearby Sharing, or Google’s Android Nearby Share–you’ve used local networking. These systems let you transfer data from

This year has placed a spotlight on our medical systems and personal health. 

As we plunge into a second wave and continue to endure the social and economic damage the coronavirus pandemic has wrought, it is more important than ever that we remember to take the best care of ourselves that we can — both physically and mentally. 

COVID-19 is now spreading at the same time as the typical cold and flu season, and with respiratory illnesses making the rounds over the winter months, the prospect of a tough period ahead of us means that staying healthy goes beyond physical fitness — we need to try and keep on top of our sleep patterns and stress levels, too. 

Below, we have compiled a list of gadgets and tech products that may help you monitor or improve your health over the coming months.

Dallas Symphony releases revised December-March programming

With coronavirus infections surging again, and no end to the pandemic in sight, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra has released revised programming for December through March 2021.

As in the fall, programs have been adjusted for compositions that can be performed by chamber-orchestra numbers of musicians, widely spaced on the Meyerson Symphony Center stage. Very limited audiences are selected by lottery from advance season subscribers, but most concerts will be subsequently available in video streams from the DSO website.

Most of the previously announced conductors and soloists still will appear, but some programs and dates will change.

Music director Fabio Luisi will conduct four programs, with pianist Alessandro Taverna and violinists Leonidas Kavakos and Alexander Kerr as soloists. The world premiere of Angélica Negrón’s En otra noche, en otro mundo (On another Night, In Another World) will remain on the Feb. 4-7 program.

Planned concert performances of Verdi’s Otello have been

The PlayStation 5’s online-only launch descended into chaos

After months of anticipation, Sony’s new PlayStation 5 launched on Thursday. 

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Sony decided not to go the traditional console launch route and isn’t selling the new game console in retail stores at launch. Instead of massive launch lines, and stories of excited fans camping out overnight in front of GameStop, the main way to get a PS5 on November 12 is to have pre-ordered the console months ago through one of several different retailers. 

Beyond that, potential PlayStation 5 buyers have one recourse on launch day: The digital storefronts of major retailers like Walmart, Target, and Best Buy. And starting at 12 p.m. ET on November 12, people got a look at how well that system worked.

The flood of customers at 12 p.m. ET was so voluminous that it caused the entire Walmart web store to crash. A technical error message said simply,

Students of colour can more easily access advanced programming in Mississauga schools


New opportunities are available at The Peel District School Board’s Regional Learning Choices Programs (RLCP) for students of colour.

According to a release, The RLCP is introducing a new self-identification process for secondary regional program applications.

As part of the board’s commitment to equity and inclusion, and to address significant disproportionalities in enrollment and equitable representation of African, Black, First Nations, Inuit, and Metis students, the RLCP application will include a new self-identification section.

The release states that all African, Black, First Nations, Inuit, and Metis students who self-identify on the application form and meet the criteria for admission will be accepted into the program without participating in the random selection process.

The random selection process is based on a two-step process which you can read about here.

Students can explore their skills in an area of interest such as the arts, business, technology, sports, skilled trades and leadership.
