Posted: Updated:

IRVING, TX  (Dec. 2, 2020) – Today at 7:00 p.m. ET, DISH Network removed from its system the network and local community programming provided by 164 local television stations owned by Nexstar Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Nexstar Media Group, Inc.

As a result, millions of Americans across the country have lost local news, traffic, weather, sports, and entertainment programming as well as critical, up-to-date news regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Huntsville students out all week after computer system attack

Huntsville school students will not return to campuses for the rest of this week as the school system responds to a computer ransomware attack, the system said today.

Principals, assistant principals, and some operations staff will return Wednesday, and teachers and other employees will return Thursday “to prepare materials for students,” the system said on its website. Curbside meals will be available at some locations Wednesday.

The school system said it is working with local and federal authorities on what is “an active investigation.” An FBI spokesman confirmed Tuesday that the bureau is “involved and working on the case.” No further details were released.

The system said it is working to “determine if any or what information may have been compromised” by the computer system break-in. It said “some families at several campuses may have received phone calls regarding internet access for students. This does not appear to be connected

MIT computer system generates the right robot for the job

Choosing the right shape is vital for a robot’s ability to traverse a particular terrain, but it is impossible to build and test every potential form. Now, however, an MIT system could solve that problem by simulating designs and working out which is the best fit.

The computer system, known as RoboGrammar, was developed by a team led by Allan Zhao at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

First, the user tells the system what parts are available, such as wheels and joints, before telling it what terrain the robot needs to navigate. RoboGrammar does the rest, generating an optimised structure and control programme for the robot.

The advance could inject computer-aided creativity into the field, a research announcement claimed.

“Robot design is

Attack on vendor affects website of Arizona court system

PHOENIX (AP) — A internet interruption resulting from a ransomware attack on a hosting provider has limited functionality of the Arizona state court system’s webpage for most of this week, according to the vendor and court officials.

The court system acknowledged the continuing problem in a brief notice on the judicial branch’s azcourts.gov homepage, which on Friday did not display the normal full array of content.

The vendor, Managed.com, said it had an “unscheduled service interruption” that began Monday and continued into Friday.

“On Nov.16, the Managed.com environment was attacked by a coordinated ransomware campaign,” the company said in an online notice posted Friday. “To ensure the integrity of our customers’ data, the limited number of impacted sites were immediately taken offline. Upon further investigation and out of an abundance of caution, we took down our entire system to ensure further customer sites were not compromised,”
