New virus in Android has cracked over a million Googlekonton – PC for All

Security firm Check Point has revealed the existence of a large intrusion into Google’s services, caused by the malicious software that is derived from the Android. Every day infected more than 13 000 units of the virus evolving, which has come to be named Gooligan.

Gooligan rootar android devices and steals then the e-mail addresses and autentiseringsbevis stored. So far, a million Googlekonton affected, and the attackers can access sensitive data from Gmail, Google Photos, Docs, Play store, Drive, and the G Suite.

Theft of over a million data to Googlekonton is alarming and represents the next step in cyber attacks, says Michael Shaulov, mobilchef at the Check Point, in a statement, and adds:

” We see a strategiskifte of the hackers, who are now targeting mobile devices to steal the sensitive information stored on them.

Check Point has made contact with the Google security team.

” We appreciate the partnership with Check Point and we work together to understand the full extent of the problem and take the necessary measures, replicated Adrian Ludwig, head of security for Android.

Check Points mobilsäkerhetsteam encountered Gooligan-code in a malicious app called SnapPea last year. Late in the summer, it came up again in the new guise, and has since then, taken on 13 000 units daily. Around 40 per cent of the affected units can be found in Asia and about 12 percent in Europe. The malicious software is installed when the user downloads and installs a Gooligan-infected app or pacifiers at some of the phishing e-mail.

Raspberry Pi 3 is connected to the cellular network with the new chipp – IDG.see

Although it has been possible to via wifi hook up their Raspberry Pi 3. But it has not so far been the talk of the to check enkortsdatorn on some longer distance. Until now. The soon to be launched namely a chipp that just open the door. A chipp that makes it possible to communicate through the LTE network. And thus over longer distances. Not, however, in particular, the high speed should be noted, writes IDG News.

Tests of an LTE-chipp, category 1, from the manufacturer, Altair, has recently been completed. And seems to have given good results, as the company is now releasing the product as an option to the popular enkortsdatorn. Something that has long been requested by developers.

the Raspberry Pi is used today in everything from hobbyhackare to professional programmers. It is being built robots, drones, and other smart devices. But so far, they have been referred to the wi-fi solutions for wireless communications.

Now you should be able to control stuff from the lower distance, if not in the very highest speeds. The transmission speed is 10 Mbps. This is significantly lower than, for example, today’s modern smart phones, like the Galaxy S7 and Iphone 7.

For example, it will now be possible to control a robot, several kilometres away, or get access to a camera via the cellular network. However, it is good to remind that it is good to see the robot check, for safety’s sake. Even the founder of Raspberry Pi, Eben Upton see the advantages with LTE connectivity. As it is possible to control the connected equipment in the industry.

But the users are so far referred to the solutions of other actors. LTE will not be built into the actual the Raspberry Pi board in the near future.

"for reasons of cost and design, there is currently no plan to integrate an LTE function in the product’s core", says Eben Upton.


Rolls Royce builds remote controlled vessels – New Technologies

Within ten years the Baltic sea have remote-controlled ship – built in Finland. Engineering group Rolls-Royce has partnered with the Finnish research institute VTT for the development of cargo vessels without crew.

(See the movie with the remote-controlled ship further down in the article)

Neither the captain, engineer, or seaman. The future of freighters can be completely unattended, and either be controlled remotely by a landbesättning or be entirely self-driven.

Rolls Royce has in recent years launched an innovative effort to develop autonomous and remote-controlled freighters. The development work takes place largely in Finland and is supported by Tekes, the Finnish innovation agency. Now introduce the Finnish research institute VTT and Rolls-Royce a strategic partnership to develop and build future ships.

"VTT is a reliable and innovative partner for developing the smart ship concept," says Karno Tenuvo, a director at Rolls Royce, in a press release.

He highlights the VTT’s competence in performing tests and in the field of digital technology, data analysis and visualization, and experience of 5G networks.

Tests of the sensors is already underway, at the shipping company Finferries vägfärja Stella in the Turku archipelago. The first remote-controlled vessels can operate in the Baltic sea within the next decade, according to Rolls Royce. The next step is self-driven ships.

– The most important thing is that you can control multiple ships from a kommunikationscenter, which is located in the country. The extreme version is autonomous ship, which does not need a manning, but they also need someone monitoring them from the country, ” said Sauli Eloranta, senior managing director at Rolls Royce marine part, to the Finnish Yle earlier this year.


Finally!!! Now it is possible to run Slack on the Commodore 64 – IDG.see

The modern office is flexible, more or less packed down in the bag and most of all – all communication goes through the co-operation programmes. As hajpade Slack. If you for some reason sitting with a Commodore 64, well then, it has been difficult to latch on to the trend. Even if it is possible to argue that working on a C64 maybe not so trend-conscious. Anyway.

Now is the problem solved. And it’s thanks to a Raspberry Pi – so clear! And Jeff Harris, software engineer and hobbyists, who cobbled it all together.

On the C64 is a general port, which from the beginning was intended to connect various accessories such as modems and printers, called Userport. There linked Jeff Harris a Raspberry Pi via a hemmasnickrad cable with usb jack at one end and userport connection in the other.

the Application for the C64:an he wrote in 6502 Assembly, and it uses the ROM function in the built-in operating system Kernal to read and write, and refresh the screen. On the pie was the code in NodeJS, that works with the api for the tickers in the Slack. For the in detail to see the code and how he went about it can be read on his blog.

judging by the videos with a demo that he uploaded seems to both channels and private messages work. So also the function of the Slacks of different keyboard shortcuts. Whether the heads on Slack think this is a good idea or a complete disaster to Jeff Harris not to go into that.

New report: Sweden best ”deep tech” ” New Technology

Stockholm is located at the top in Europe when it comes to the number of programmers per capita with knowledge in hot framtidsteknologier as virtual reality and machine learning, according to a new report.

For the third year in a row, Atomico, a global venture capital firm started by Skypegrundaren Niklas and Mattias Ljungman, taken the pulse of the european startup industry.

The study, published today Wednesday shows that Europe is becoming increasingly stronger in the field of "deep tech", which among other things covers the important framtidsteknologier as artificial intelligence, voice recognition, big data and bildseende.

In 2015, was founded in the 470 new european startup company shares whose business revolves around the deep tech-technologies, which can be compared with 347 during the same year – and so far this year, it has spent a total of 88 million dollars on takeovers and mergers in the area, evidenced by the survey.

Sweden and in particular Stockholm, has a huge head start when it comes to expertise in "deeptech". According to Atomico, ranks the Swedish capital, the top five among european cities when it comes to most developers with knowledge of technologies such as self-driven cars, machine learning, and self-driven vehicles per capita.

As an example, on Sweden’s strength in the field can be mentioned that Apple chose Lund as the location for their development department who are experimenting with new techniques for maps. Teknikjätten also bought up the linköpingsbaserade 3d kartbolaget C3 Technologies in 2011.

– What distinguishes Sweden is that there is a large width in the deep tech – everything from Mapillary, which uses artificial intelligence to map the world, to Klarna, working with machine learning in the long term, be able to offer their customers auto loans. In Sweden there are over 50 000 professional developers, which makes this a real industry for the future, ” says Atomicos Mattias Ljungman to the New technology.

There are several underlying factors as to why Sweden and Stockholm have been able to get such a strong position in the deep tech-front. One of these is Sweden’s technical colleges and universities have invested a lot on research in areas such as artificial intelligence, and that we are now beginning to see an increasingly wider commercialisation of innovations produced by researchers.

– In Sweden, it has invested about 1.8 billion kronor in the deep tech in the years 2011-2015. There is less of a capital than in other, larger cities, but in Sweden we have been good at that we don’t always need to get a lot of money to build successful businesses.

another significant reason is that Stockholm has become one of the world’s most attractive cities to live in for developers. World renowned companies such as Klarna, Spotify and Truecaller makes it easier to attract talent from all over the world to the Swedish startup industry.

” Good programmers have a tendency to attract other talented programmers. Sweden has a bunch of international superstars in development. It, such as Jan Erik Solem do with Mapillary attract expertise in artificial intelligence from all over the world, ” says Sophia Bendz, venture capitalist at Atomico, with a background as a marketing manager at Spotify.

Sweden Has the conditions to create more "unicorns", that is to say, companies which reach a valuation of over a billion dollars?

” Absolutely.” But I think that it is important to look at the development over a longer period of time, and feel any panic over the fact that it might not have cropped up a few unicorns in a year, ” says Sophia Bendz.

What areas do you see as the most interesting in the Swedish tech scene?

” Sweden has long been good at creating innovative music labels, but the fintech, retail and fashion are other areas that we also are strong in. Health is another area that is highly interesting, ” says Mattias Ljungman.


Tele 2 will be the first virtual network – the New Technology

Tele 2 is the first of the Swedish operators. The next year starts, the operator of the commercial operation of the virtual mobile networks. The driving force is money.

Tele 2′s new NPV-net is then a time of trial operation in Croatia, and everything has gone according to plan. The company says that it is among the first to introduce the NPV-the standard, which will replace the traditional proprietary technology in telecom networks.

– Tele 2 begins by virtualising the mobile broadband networks, and then we continue with the more traditional telecom services and it applications, ” says Thomas Björklund, technical manager at Tele 2.

He makes the assessment that the bulk of their bredbandstrafik and telephone traffic goes through the NPV-based network in 2020.

– 2026 should shift to the NPV to be fully implemented, ” he says.

A key driver of the shift in technology is money. Tele 2 count by approximately 30% reduced investment costs and an equal reduction of the running costs for the NPV of the networks.

Read more: more Efficient networks are purchased for billions

For the subscribers noticed no changes in their existing mobile services. But the shift in technology means that the old production environment is changed and the intelligence in the mobile networks move to the cloud. For operators like Tele 2, it will be easier and cheaper to introduce new services. Because of the upcoming 5g standard will be based on the NPV, it means the shift is also an important step into the future.

NPV-the standard is designed so that it will be possible for the operator to purchase hardware, virtualiseringsmotor, support systems, and applications from different vendors. Tele2 has selected four strategic suppliers. Nokia delivers cloud service Cloud Packet Core, Canonical stands for virtualiseringsmotorn and the related operation. Cisco delivers the network and Huawei servers.

– Tele 2 to introduce the NPV as soon as it is commercially possible to justify. And it is now, ” says Thomas Björklund.

the Consultant Bengt Nordstrom of Northstream agree with.

The virtualisation of telecommunications networks begins now. It begins with the operators virtualizes any important services like telephony (Volte) or broadband. Then we get a gradual development, ” he says.

the Standard is designed so that the operator relatively easily to be able to switch out a single NPV of product, when it is a better to buy. The advantage with this is that the operator thus can put all the vendors under maximum pressure.

it never has been before. When the operator again decided to purchase a cellular network of a supplier, the operator has normally been stuck with this provider for decades.

– We want to be able to purchase the NPV products from various suppliers and the integrator yourself or buy the integration of an independent supplier, ” says Thomas Björklund.

“History shows that lock-in of a single supplier becomes more expensive in the long run,” says Björklund.

Today’s major providers of mobile networks, including Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia, to however, sell what they call "Full Stack". It means that the supplier is responsible for making all system integration and sells a complete package to the operator.

“My assessment is that it takes two to three years before we see if the majority of the market chooses to make that Tele 2, or if they choose a Full Stack,” says Thomas Björklund.

Bengt Nordström, however, sees the advantages of a Full Stack.

– It is likely that many operators will choose a Full Stack in the beginning in order to minimise risk. In the long term, it will be easier for operators to integrate the NPV of the products themselves, the NPV of the products will be more stable, ” says Bengt Nordström.

Details: Uber Pop remains illegal in Sweden – Expressen

the Government’s Taxiutredning be presented at a press conference on Wednesday morning.

According to Expressen experience will the results of the investigation in part to the benefit of operators like Uber – but probably criticised by the traditional taxibranschen.

the Commission’s directive has been to "investigate and possibly submit proposals on the obligatory use of taximeter equipment in taxis without the possibility of exemption". Furthermore, the government sought to review the "needs of, and possibly submit a proposal for, a new category of professional carriage of passengers with a passenger car or light truck".

And last, but not least, "to review, and possibly propose modifications to, or clarifications of, the rules for car-sharing between private individuals".

known as festival

the Latter is probably the hottest issue. This after the company Uber in 2014 launched their version of lift-sharing (Uber pop), which came to be known as the city centre business.

Several drivers was reported to the police, and the service was shut down by Uber earlier this year.

Taxiutredningen now seen over the the rules for car sharing is expected to give the critics the right in the question, according to the Expressen experience.

Carpooling may not mean that any party making an economic profit, learn to be one of the conclusions of the inquiry.

But what about the new category of "passengers" get to the Uber be more satisfied.

the Company has long fought for the drivers to be able to use private cars for the taxi business during the short periods of time.

the Ubers sweden manager Martin Hedevåg said this in an interview with Expressen recently:

” Our vision is to make society more effectively. Imagine a car rental agent that has a lot of activity in the weeks when people need to rent a car, which goes down on the weekends. When needed, however, more taxis, which may be less in demand in the few weeks.

Taxiutredningen is not expected to go quite so far in its recommendation, but still point out that today there are other technical possibilities which do not require a traditional taximeter. External decals and marking of comparison price of the cars are to be avoided in cases where the reservations is made at a fixed price by a central (for example a mobile application).

the Taximeter will remain a requirement for the taxis that continue to want to be able to pick up passengers spontaneously along the way and run with the running cost.

A taxitrafiktillstånd from the Swedish transport agency should be required of anyone who wants to drive a taxi in any form, beats the investigation firm.

Expert do not want to comment

It should, however, remain a requirement for the traditional taxi industry, which wishes to pick up passengers anywhere.

the bank’s former chief economist Anna Felländer has been an expert in taxiutredningen. She would not comment on the data in the study directly but said that work overall aimed to make the rules clearer.

“For me as an expert to the investigation, it has been a balancing act between allowing delningsekonomin to flourish, to lower the inträdesbarriärerna in the traditional taxibranschen and to maintain control, which allows tax paid in the right way,” she says and develop:

– The technological and digital development, including Uber stood for is something that paves the way for the traditional taxibranschen to be transformed so that we can better take care of the digitisation opportunities.

She admits that she is pronounced delningsekonomiförespråkare and to transform sometimes is good to force the incumbents to adapt to new technologies and customers ‘ new needs.

– At each technological paradigm shift, it’s about to make the transformation as smooth as possible. The big traditional industries are being challenged, and I think it is important to apply as technology-neutral regelverksanpassningar as possible. At the same time that we care about the privacy, security for the customer and security for the worker, ” she says.


Hackers took spårvagnsystem hostage – New Technology

Hackers hit spårvagnsystemet Muni in San Francisco this weekend and took a quarter of their computers hostage. As a result of the attack was made public transportation free of charge.

It’s like a scene taken out of a science fiction thriller. On Friday last week discovered responsible of the San Francisco Municipal Railway – often referred to as the Muni – that someone, or a few, had penetrated their system which controls both the barriers that ticket sales.

In the attack was around 2 000 computers and serving – a quarter of all in the company – hostage. According to the site The Verge, the following message have appeared on the screens to some of the computers been hacked: “You Hacked, ALL the Data is Encrypted. Contact For Key( ID:681, Enter.

Exactly how the hack was carried out is not yet known, but a possible approach is using a so-called phishing attack, where the malicious code is sent out via e-mail to the company’s employees, or placed on a false website that the staff have been enticed to visit.

As a result of the infringement, which left the latches open and the loading of the debit card impossible, made public transport free for the passengers during the weekend.

the Hackers reportedly demanded the city of San Francisco on a ransom of 100 bitcoins, equivalent to approximately 645 000 sek, for the dekrypteringsnycklar needed to regain control of the system, writes the BBC. But in the moment, it is unclear, however, if lösensumman was paid or not.

Muni has confirmed the attack, but according to a spokesperson from the company should the infringement not have led to any significant impact of the company’s systems, or to any sensitive information about their customers has fallen into the wrong hands.

Even if the hack does not seem to have caused any major damage to the Munis system, now points to several experts on the attack as a clear example of how infrastructure can be knocked out with relatively simple means.


Ransomware or ransomware is a kind of malicious code that infect computers and then lock them up through encryption. In order to regain control over their computer and the content on it – the owner must then pay a ransom, often in the bitcoins to the transaction should not go to track, to the hacker, after the payment, send a decryption key to the person affected.


Hackers went empty-handed from the attack on San Francisco – IDG.see

It is the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, SFMTA, who took the blade from her mouth and commented on this weekend’s event in a blog post.

– The malicious code managed to encrypt some systems, most office computers, and even got access to different systems. But the SFMTA network released not, however, in any basis, and the hackers don’t come through our firewall, type Kristen Holland, spokesperson for the SFMTA.

It was last Friday that someone tried to unlock the SFMTA’s network with the help of a ransomware, and then require 73 000 dollars in exchange for unlocking everything again.

But according to the statement shall no ransom be paid.

– SFMTA thought never to pay lösensumman. We have an it team in place that can restore the system and it is exactly what they do.

According to the statement, passengers ‘ information or security never at risk to leak out.

instead, it was mainly the administrative office computers that got infected in the attack, among other things, the program which manages the employee’s salary locked.

– this will not affect the employees ‘ pay, writes Holland.

Confidence in internet security, an all-time low – 99mac

People’s trust in the security on the internet has dropped, according to a report from the Internet Society. The main reason is the risk of hacking.

the Internet Society has released a report on of the degree to which people have confidence in the internet, where 24 000 people surveyed in 54 different countries. The conclusion is that the confidence of the internet is a record, and 59 percent say they likely would not do business with a company hit by computer intrusions.

According to the economist Michael Kende who compiled the report, many people feel that companies are not doing enough to protect their customers ‘ data. He says:

– Everyone knows that data security is an important issue for both consumers and businesses, yet do companies not do everything they can to prevent infringement.

The average cost of a data breach is now according to the Internet Society the equivalent of 37 million which is an increase of 29% since 2013. In 2015 reported 1 673 cases of hacking, so it’s about large sums of money. The Internet Society is now calling on organisations to actively work on to improve their safety, according to the five recommendations:

  1. putting users at the centre, which is the largest victims of hacking.

  2. To be more open about the risks and consequences of data breaches. To share information responsibly, can contribute to increase the data security and create better technical solutions.

  3. data security must be a top priority.

  4. organisations must be held responsible when the hacking is done with them.

  5. To increase the motivation to invest in data security by creating a market for reliable and independent way to measure the level of security. In this way, companies can compare themselves with each other, and a high level of security becomes a competitive advantage.

the internet of Things the “extreme risk”

the Report also draws criticism against the phenomenon of the internet of things (IoT, the Internet of Things where more and more vardagsprylar will be internet-connected. According to estimates, tens of billion devices will be connected by 2020, and many of them have sensors that can track the geographical location, save health data and other sensitive information about the user. The security of many of these connected gadgets are low, mean, Olaf Kolkman, chief technology officer at the Internet Society. He says:

– When more and more of the devices we have in the pockets are connected to the internet, the risk of losing personal data is extremely high.

Kolkman also said in the report that as much as 93 percent of the intrusions could have been prevented if the proper safeguards had been in place. The report in its entirety can be read on the Internet Society web site.

Massive koralldöd on the barrier reef – the Swedish newspaper svenska Dagbladet

A stretch of 700 kilometers on its northern part, which scientists call the red zone, are the worst affected. When the temperature of the water during the australian summer was two degrees above the normal maximum summer temperatures damaged the coral reef.

– It is very bad. Among the sixty-rev we examined have an average of two-thirds of the corals that were alive in march lost, ” says professor Terry Hughes, director of korallrevsstudier at the Arc center of excellence at James Cook University.

He has flown over the Great barrier reef by helicopter and aircraft to estimate the extent of korallblekningen. With the help of stickkontroller where divers have gone down in hundreds of places, the results have been confirmed.

the Corals form habitats for many other animals, such as fish.

– Koralldöden will affect the rest of the ecosystem, ” says Hughes.

It will take a long time for the most severely damaged parts of the reef to recover, if they ever do.

– the Bleaching in the north was so extreme this time that we’ve seen in the corals fade and die, which normally do not make it, the tougher and slow-growing corals that can live for 50-100 years, ” he says.

The fastest growing corals can be replaced in 10-15 years.

– So the burning question is how likely it is that we get such continuous period of time before the next korallblekningshändelse, with the view of global warming? We have already seen three on the Great barrier reef, the first in 1998, second in 2002 and the third in the year.

Probably we will not see the same mix of plants and animals in the area during our lifetime, according to Hughes. Nevertheless, the situation could be considerably worse.

– the Entire barrier reef would have been in the red zone, if not the cyclone, Winston had pulled out of it. The thoroughly cooled down the temperatures in the southern and middle part in the march, and saved it from the extreme heat.

In the southern part of the reef has virtually no coral bleaching at all become permanent, and the middle part is the proportion of dead coral six per cent. In the most northern part has an average of 26 percent of the corals died.

The confidence of the internet is in the bottom, according to a new survey – IDG.see

the Report, which revolves around a study, conducted in 54 countries with 24 000 said, paints a clear picture. It writes The Register.

– Everyone knows that data security is a major issue for both consumers and businesses. Anyway so does not make the company everything they could do to prevent the infringement, writes economist and ISOC-member Michael Kende in the report.

also Read: the Hackers took San Francisco’s public transportation hostage

That all need to brush up on their safety is supported by ISOC’s figures showing that in the years, there have been 1 673 hacking, the entire 29 per cent more data breaches than 2013. According to the report, is estimated each incursion cost approximately four million dollars.

– 93% of interventions to prevent, and steps to mitigate the costs of interventions will not be – attackers can’t steal data that is not stored and can not use the data that is encrypted. This status-quo is not good enough anymore, ” says Michael Kende.

In its report, lists the ISOC five points as they believe that every business should have in mind when it comes to security.

  1. Put the user first, which means that the consumer’s costs of data breaches are counted in the total cost.
  2. Increase the transparency. Through the sharing of information after an intrusion, you can help others to fix any security holes.
  3. Prioritise data security.
  4. Increase the responsibility. Companies and organizations should be held responsible for the possible intrusion.
  5. Increase the incentives to invest in security. Companies should be able to share their level of security to signal to the other if they are vulnerable.

Now they get more holidays – Östgöta Correspondenten

the Ability to change the semesterdagstillägg against the available days are already in about half of Sweden’s municipalities.

Video: Avoid – Cosy but dangerous neonbygge from “Timpelay” – NordicHardware

Tim "Timpelay" Peterson, was one of several nimble modders to visit DHW16. The editorial staff took the opportunity to snag Tim and let him tell you about the new delicious construction – Avoid.

Already in the summer picked Tim "Timpelay" Peterson, a meritorious victory in the Cooler Master Dreamhack Modding Championship. During the DreamHack Winter 2016, it was time again and in just one less than six months, Tim had managed to get to an impressive building.

Avoid is similar to tim’s previous build a stylish creation medimponerande detailed. The color scheme begins with the matt black Cooler Master chassis, and go over the neon, the pastel pink and turquoise. A on paper the hesitant combination, but which, in Avoid gives a rare awesome impression.

AVOID giving nostalgivibbar

With frozen vattenkylningsrör, spökliknande plexiglass and neonlackade fans is Avoid both cozy and a little dangerous. To chassis get more people to think about the nostalgic game Hotline Miami, though, is said to be a clean event.

She performed on the closed strippklubben – Norrköpings Tidningar

We are terribly ill-treated by banks, insurance companies and the Tax authorities. We are equated with prostitutes though we are hard-working artists. If nothing happens will our profession be eradicated in two years, as the Internet has taken over, ” says LunaDvil.

Planned strippklubben

She got in touch with the NT since we are told that some of the girls on a glamoursajt written that they would dance on the strippklubben on Lindåkersvägen, where a bomb exploded outside the property the night of the 14th of november.

” I was in the planning of the club and gave the guys who would start the advice. We were also there and danced to attract guests. But it was not they who hired us, but we, as a self-employed person who hired us. We must always do, ” she says.

LunaDvil is just as the police convinced that it was not strippklubben that the bomb was targeted against.

– It is rarely stripteasen that is the problem, ” she says.

Then the bomb detonated has strippklubben got shut down, because the property owner said up the contract, then he had not been informed about the operation.

– the Guys at the club have gone under the earth. I have been unable to find them, ” says LunaDvil.

She takes us to her little dressing room behind the stage. Where she has her stage clothes and accessories, including shoes with sky-high heels and a mask that looks to be taken from Stanley Kubrick film Eyes wideshut.

Socialize naked

A couple of her colleagues walks by and they are naked. One of them is golden brown and the skin glowing. She is petite but has large breasts, flat stomach and looks to have a piece of hair on the body. They seem completely untroubled by his nudity. One of them says that she exercises at the gym.

But LunaDvil notes dramatically:

– most of It is plastic here, ” she says, and counts up all of the plastic surgery procedures she has done.

the Eyelids, the nose, the lips, the breasts have changed. In addition, she has moved the fat from the belly to the hips.

– It is included in our artificial visual and erotic show. We have taken kroppsmodifieringen to a different level, but everyone is happy, ” she says and smiles.

She is really thriving with his career choice, but think it is strange that exotic dance is so infinitely more accepted abroad than in Sweden.

” It’s almost like the Swedish sin has become the Swedish shame. I do not understand that so many people decry what we do. Eroticism is natural and a part of life.

She thinks that there is a clear double standard.

Male strippers

” It has become more accepted by male strippers. After Magic Mike, it has exploded, but still condemned female strippers, ” she says.

LunaDvil, who uses her stage name, has worked in the industry for nearly ten years. She describes it as the hard worn given results. She has reached a position where she will be invited to perform at the erotikevent in Europe and is artistkoordinator for Swedish erotikmässor. In addition, she earns money on the private shows and as a domina, which means that she binds and whips the men. The job as a domina, she has told you about in the tv program Outsiders, which is about people with odd jobs.

But even if she thrives, it has not always been a bed of roses. Her mother cried for a week when she learned that she started working with the striptease. And she do not yearn for children.

” I don’t want to have children. If I had a daughter she would become like me and there are few who can handle this industry. It is so tough.

Don’t let the English language to completely take over the research” – Svenska Dagbladet

Photo: Claudio Bresciani/TT

It benefits simply the individual career to write in English.

the Swedish occupational researchers have for a long time, with concern over the fact that the research on working life (in the broadest sense) have ended up in the periphery. Its previous prominent position has been greatly weakened in terms of both the allocation of research funds samhällspåverkande force. The problems have been discussed intensively among researchers and has resulted in a number of opinion articles in the press and letters to the ministries and the funding agencies. The goal is to move forward and really be a research whose results contribute to a good working life and society.

in Order to be able to be such a force must the research carried out – and that is likely of interest to a wide public – visible. A good way is to actually publish the results of the research also in Swedish.

Probably the most occupational researchers argue that what they are doing is socially beneficial and important. Much will also be published in a never-ending stream of international journals. One problem is that these magazines are, in fact, available to researchers and other professionals at universities and colleges, mainly because it required any kind of subscription (which is usually associated with a high cost that the various universities are for), but also because they are written in academic English.

another problem is to navigate and find what one is interested in the large variegated flora of the (digitized) international journals, with articles about labour issues. It is simply so that you have to engage in a targeted and systematic search, since nothing "pops up in the knee". The international publication of the predominantly tax-funded research on working life is thus essentially an internal communication between research groups. Indirectly, by excluding the other stakeholders – including influential actors such as politicians, managers, trade unionists, employees or citizens in general who would benefit from that research will also be published in Swedish, preferably by so-called open access (i.e. available free of charge on the internet for all).

How is it then become like this? An important reason is that academies, research centres and individual researchers now seem to on a arena which is heavily exposed to new public management ideas, which – somewhat ironically – tends to lead to that research as soon as becoming a concern of a limited audience especially the uninitiated. Of course, it is important to our university exchange and dialogue. It drives the research forward and stimulates cooperation. Unfortunately, however, it is not only such noble motives behind the English publiceringshysterin often described in terms of publish or perish.

basically is it related with the reward system that allows a comprehensive publication of articles in English-language journals is worth more than publications in English. The CV is built on, a further step in the academic career can be taken and research grants will be easier to conquer. It benefits simply the individual career to write in English. But even the colleges encourage this when they are awarded state funds based on how successful researchers have been in to publish in reputable journals – which are mostly international ones. The current system’s rear is not at least to the universities ‘ third task – to share the knowledge with the surrounding society – tend to play second fiddle. To communicate and disseminate their research results in context in an accessible manner is not something that is rewarded in the academic world for the moment. It is not particularly meritorious for either the researchers or institutions. Indirectly, it seems to lead to a somewhat cynical approach to all the time wager on to publish where the dividend as well meriteringsmässigt which economically is the greatest. The publiceringshets that all researchers know of, in lower or higher degree, are to be found everywhere. It is not a unique Swedish phenomenon, far from it, and it would be naive to believe that a contribution such as this would change it here. But after all, it is important that the people involved begin to think about how and in what ways it should or should communicate and disseminate the hopefully useful and beneficial research conducted at our universities and colleges.

It is important to highlight that so far there are scientific journals (with peer review, peer review) in English which deserve more attention. Within the work life research is, for example, the journals Labour & Employment and Working life in transition. Both publish scientific articles in English which are possible to read for all who are interested. A central problem, however, is – as previously mentioned – that the scientific merits of writing for these journals is significantly lower compared with the corresponding English-language periodicals. A karriärmedveten researcher selects, therefore, often remove the publications in Swedish, despite the fact that both readership and social påverkansgrad would increase significantly if the results were published in a Swedish magazine. Most scientists say they want to make a difference, and that despite the currently worse meriteringsmässiga the value, choose to also publish their results in English is sending out signals that he or she actually cares about more than just his own career.

A lot of games in other fuskutredningen against the professor – Göteborgs-Posten

the Investigation is being made of the university’s so-called Oredlighetsråd, where professor emeritus Björn Rydevik chairman.
- We do not communicate externally, either on the timeline or anything else. You may contact the management of the university of Gothenburg, says Rydevik.

He was in september called up to the university’s board of directors to tell you about the utredningsläget. At the same time presented the new course, directed toward the misconduct, which in the autumn started to be given at the university. Discussions are on to make the course compulsory in the doctoral programme.

According to the university’s ledningskommunikatör Ann-Charlotte Hansson Schützer is no end date for the oredlighetsrådets review but she states that it is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
that is When on the Olle Larkö, dean at the faculty of medicine, reported in march, is the misconduct.

Hit the alarm on the bildmanipulationer

It was nätsajten PubPeer, where scientists review each other’s performance, which sounded the alarm about a dozen cases of what seems to be bildmanipulationer in scientific reports, from professor Holgerssons research group.
Olle Larkö writes in his notification that he had been aware that researchers at the university of Gothenburg in several cases, the published scientific works with “fabricated and distorted data”. In the notification, he concentrates his however, on the “two clear examples of suspected misconduct”.

It is about the same image used in different research reports, published with a several-year intervals, and claimed, imagine different things.
for Example, it was claimed, in a 2008 report, that a picture imagined the cells of the liver. Five years later appeared the same picture up again and said now show the stem cells isolated from the bone marrow.

Images of cells

The second case applies to a research report from 2012, where a picture is provided to show the cells of the liver. Two years later, the same image in the scientific journal Tissue Engineering but is said to now imagine the cells of a nose.
The latter essay is about the transplant at the Sahlgrenska academy in march 2011, a 76-year-old man who received a new trachea.

Professor Suchitra Holgersson sent an email to the journal, and requested that the image would be replaced by another. The editor noted that such a request is highly unusual and gave rise to concern. The decision in may of this year was that the journal withdrew the paper.

admitting mistakes

Suchitra Holgersson has met oredlighetsrådet once and have given it a basis in the form of logbooks and raw data. She admits that mistakes have been made but denies the manipulations.
What mistakes have been made?
- We have used pictures twice. But it has nothing to with manipulation to do. All the experiments are made, ” says Holgersson.

How can the same picture is claimed to show different things?
- If you take, for example, cells from lung, epithelial cells, the same cell type also in the kidney and in the small intestine and so on. When you use the same marker to show a cell type. If you use a cursor to look at the cells then the cells in all the organs. All of the pictures ended up in the same folder on the researcher’s hard drive. Then it has, by mistake, happened to the cursor name set, and ended up in another magazine.

You claim it is someone other than you that made mistakes?
- We’re a big team that work. I do not try and take the photos yourself. But as a senior author, I would have checked the pictures. It is my responsibility, ” says Suchitra Holgersson.

Among the co-authors of the avpublicerade article in Tissue Engineering was the professor of transplant surgery Michael Olausson.
He recruited in the autumn of 2008 Suchitra Holgersson from the Karolinska institute, the Sahlgrenska academy, the medical part of the university of Gothenburg, where she received a service that transplantationsbiolog.

Suspicions about cheating

At the same time there arose the suspicion that Holgersson cheated in their research, and in december 2008 was notified of this by the Karolinska institutet and Gothenburg university. The notifications were examined by an expert group within the Swedish research council, and on 9 september 2010, the statement:
Suchitra Holgersson has been guilty to four cases of gross scientific misconduct. In one of the cases, it was “put to the data that could not be verified” in an article in the scientific journal Blood (article avpublicerades later).

Furthermore, the Swedish research council’s expert group to Holgersson had tried to mislead them during an investigation by submitting false documents. This was classed as very serious scientific misconduct.

the Leadership of the Karolinska institute noted in a decision of 15 February 2011 to Suchitra Holgersson “guilty of research misconduct and this misconduct has been of a very serious nature.”

After the Council review, wrote the rector of the university of Gothenburg, Pam Fredman, to the State ansvarsnämnd and requested to Suchitra Holgersson would be dismissed.

1000 hours on the case

But the last word is far from said. Michael Olausson, regarded as one of the country’s top surgeons and stjärnläkare at Sahlgrenska academy, who, according to their own task down over 1000 hours to investigate the case. This corresponds to a half years of work on a full time basis.

Michael Olaussons view is that the handling of the case “is the biggest scandal research society suffered in Sweden”. In addition to lay the blame for the obvious errors that occurred in the research in the foremost one of the three students who complained of the misconduct, he points at that the research council had the disorder in the investigation material.

This was also the main reason when the Swedish research council’s new director-general of 21 september 2011, withdrew the opinion on Suchitra Holgersson.

the Members of the Swedish research council’s expert group said in a debate article in dagens nyheter: “IN the light of the repeated and serious cheating is uncovered, appears to be the director-general’s decision to us as incomprehensible”.
the Group warned that the director-general’s decision “threatens to cause further deterioration in confidence for the research and for work with oredlighetsfrågor in Sweden”.

Request for a new investigation

A request for a new inquiry was sent to the Central ethical review board 24 October 2012 came to the conclusion that “the suspicions levelled against Suchitra Holgersson (are) not sufficiently informed in order to provide a basis for a finding that she would have been guilty of misconduct in research.”

at the same time, recommended the Central ethical review board of Karolinska institute to reverse its decision from February of the year prior to fuskklassa Holgersson.
But it did not the Karolinska institute: a new assessment requires the new circumstances, and these have not emerged, ” noted the institute’s president in april 2013.

Gothenburg university withdrew its request for dismissal.

Professor Michael Olausson describes his situation as “incredibly stressful” for Gerdin-investigation and the current, other fuskutredningen against Suchitra Holgersson.
I helped her to clear herself out of the situation when she arrived to Gothenburg. I thought it was clear with it, ” says Olausson.

He supports her too this time, although he states that their cooperation a few years ago ended. However, he also engages not as hard as in the last fuskutredningen:
- I’m simply not. It affected my career and cost me almost my family.
