Security Account Manager

The Security Account Manager is a database file in Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 that stores users' passwords. It can be used to authenticate remote users. Beginning with Windows 2000 SP4, Active Directory authenticates remote users. SAM uses cryptographic measures to prevent unauthenticated users accessing the system; the user passwords are stored in a hashed format in a registry hive either as a LM hash or as a NTLM hash. This file can be found in %SystemRoot%/system32/config/SAM and is mounted on HKLM/SAM. In an attempt to improve the security of the SAM database against offline software cracking, Microsoft introduced the SYSKEY function in Windows NT 4.0. When SYSKEY is enabled, the on-disk copy of the SAM file is encrypted, so that the password hash values for all local accounts stored in the SAM are encrypted with a key, it can be enabled by running the syskey program. Since a hash function is one-way, this provides some measure of security for the storage of the passwords.

In the case of online attacks, it is not possible to copy the SAM file to another location. The SAM file cannot be moved or copied while Windows is running, since the Windows kernel obtains and keeps an exclusive filesystem lock on the SAM file, will not release that lock until the operating system has shut down or a "Blue Screen of Death" exception has been thrown. However, the in-memory copy of the contents of the SAM can be dumped using various techniques, making the password hashes available for offline brute-force attack. LM hash has been replaced by NTLM hash. Most versions of Windows can be configured to disable the creation and storage of valid LM hashes when the user changes their password. Windows Vista and versions of Windows disable LM hash by default. Note: enabling this setting does not clear the LM hash values from the SAM, but rather enables an additional check during password change operations that will instead store a "dummy" value in the location in the SAM database where the LM hash is otherwise stored.

In Windows NT 3.51, NT 4.0 and 2000, an attack was devised to bypass the local authentication system. If the SAM file is deleted from the hard drive, the attacker could log in as any account with no password; this flaw was corrected with Windows XP, which shuts down the computer. However, there exist software utilities, which, by the aforementioned methodology of using either an emulated virtual drive, or boot disk based environment to mount the local drive housing the active NTFS partition, using programmed software routines and function calls from within assigned memory stacks to isolate the SAM file from the Windows NT system installation directory structure and, depending on the particular software utility being used, removes the password hashes stored for user accounts in their entirety, or in some cases, modify the user account passwords directly from this environment; this software has both a pragmatic and beneficial use as a password clearing or account recovering utility for individuals who have lost or forgotten their Windows account passwords, as well as a possible use as a malicious software security bypassing utility.

Granting a user with enough ability and familiarity with both the cracking utility software and the security routines of the Windows NT kernel the capability to bypass or remove the Windows account passwords from a potential target computer. Only Microsoft released a utility called LockSmith, part of MSDart. MSDart is not available to end-users, however.

Dumb Bunnies

The Dumb Bunnies are a series of books created by Dav Pilkey, the author of Captain Underpants, under the pseudonym "Sue Denim". They involve the adventures of a dumb family of bunnies; the Dumb Bunnies did everything in reverse, including sleeping under beds and putting flowers upside down in vases. The series is said to be mocking or parodying books like Good Night Moon by Margaret Wise Brown and The Stupids Step Out by Harry G. Allard and illustrated by James Marshall, it was adapted into a television series in 1998, created by Home Box Office, Seven Network, Cartoon Network, American company Scholastic, Australian company Yoram Gross-Village Roadshow The show ran for twenty-six episodes. In Australia, the show ran on Seven Network; the Dumb Bunnies first appeared in the book The Dumb Bunnies. In the book the Dumb Bunnies are having porridge, they have a picnic in the car wash. Meanwhile, Little Red Goldilocks enters their home; when the Dumb Bunnies return, they are thrilled to see her. But Poppa Bunny is embarrassed.

Momma Bunny is angry. Baby Bunny cries. Papa Bunny dances, Mama Bunny sings a song, Baby Bunny flushes her down the toilet. At the end of the book, a picture on the back cover shows her coming out of a sewer pipe and landing in a lake. Note: The cover had the word "spam" on the bowl of porridge, which Dav claims was meant to be a joke, until the Hormel Foods Corporation threatened legal action, causing either a recall of the book or placing a golden sticker on it until a reprint was made without the word; the Spam covers have now become hard to find. The Dumb Bunnies made their second appearance in the book The Dumb Bunnies Easter; the Dumb Bunnies set up the decorations. After preparing, they watch a small football on top of their television, they go to hang up their stockings before they realize that they are wearing them and they are sleeping upside down in front of the fireplace. The Easter Bunny soon drops all the eggs down the chimney; the next morning, the Dumb Bunnies are thrilled to see the eggs.

Their third appearance was in the book Make Way for Dumb Bunnies. While the Dumb Bunnies are spending quality time at home, it starts raining, they think it is a perfect day to go to the beach and they head there. But the sun comes out and they think it is bad weather, so they head to the movie theater. During the movie, the Dumb Bunnies think, they regain vision again. The Dumb Bunnies latest appearance is in the book The Dumb Bunnies Go to the Zoo, they first go outside to pick things in their garden. They drive to the zoo, only to discover the animals they are seeing are a lot smaller than they are; when the butterfly flutters off the sign they think the lion escaped and go crazy all over the zoo and letting all the animals loose. The S. W. A. T. Cops arrive to capture the lion; as they leave the zoo, they come across two giant apes which they mistake for being "Free Kitties". Baby Bunny decides to keep them, but as they drive out, the apes fall off the top of the car they had been tied to, they get into their new waterbed and fall asleep.

In 2010, The Dumb Bunnies Go to the Zoo was placed on the "Most Challenged Books of 2010" list, published by the Canadian Library Association. Again, this particular book was challenged - this time in Oregon for "concern that reading this book may result in confusion and stupidity." The book was retained in the library. Because of the "sarcastic view of humor", the series was challenged in Summit County and was moved out the primary library and into the intermediate library; the original book was challenged in Texas because of parent complaints that the book depicted violence.

Youth square dance

Youth square dancing is square dancing among people up to their mid-twenties. In specific contexts, e.g. in qualification for some event, it may refer to dancers up to a particular age such as 18. It may refer to a style of dancing that, while most popular among younger dancers, can be enjoyed by some older dancers. Square dancing is an activity open to people of every age group, but many people think of it as an activity for people in their late fifties or older, but among those involved with the full age range of current dancers, early twenties is the upper limit for designating a group or event with the term "youth". Youth square dancing, as a style, is open to all square dancers; the dancing is modern western square dancing, as it is practiced throughout the world, standardized by Callerlab. Square dance clubs vary in their accommodation of young dancers, ranging from clubs organized for youth, through ones that are populated by dancers of every age, to some that are oriented to adults; some representative categories of square dance clubs and classes with respect to age: Those for children in a specific age range Those for children and their parents or other family members Those that encourage dancers of all ages Those oriented to adults but that allow children Those that do not allow children There are a number of ways in which youth square dancing differs from typical adult square dancing.

These features are typical in clubs that are oriented toward youth dancing, tend to be more common among adults, at mixed-age clubs and events where there are a significant number of youth dancers. Youth dancing tends to be "higher energy"; the dancing tends to be faster, with the caller using more modern music. While all modern Western square dancing uses a common set of call definitions, which specify the basic dance movements and outcome of each call, there are many possible "frills" or "flourishes" -- extra movements that can be added without changing the resulting position; these include extra twirls and other movements of the hands or feet. A few of these are traditional among adult dancers in certain geographic regions, but youth dancing includes more of them regardless of location. Gender is an essential aspect of square dance choreography; each square consists of four "boys" and four "girls", who maintain this identity throughout a dance tip. The caller uses this to address calls to a subset of the dancers.

In addition, a small number of calls, but ones that are used, involve a different dance action for the boys and girls. However, for this to work it is not necessary that the biological sex of the dancers match the roles that they are playing at any given time, e.g. it is possible for a woman to dance the "boy's part". At the typical adult club, dancing the "opposite part" is uncommon. Many clubs are dominated by married couples, most of the dancers are not familiar with dancing the other part, there may be social stigma associated with such role reversals. Sometimes it is accepted, but is seen only as a way to deal with special circumstances, such as to accommodate everybody when there are "extra" women. In youth dancing, switching gender roles is a little more common as a variation, it might occur because a girl does not have a partner due to a shortage of boys, but wants to dance. So she partners with another girl. It's unusual for a boy to dance the girl's part. A girl might dance the boy's part one tip, the girl's part the next.

Some youth dancers know how to dance both parts, having learned this either for the additional challenge or out of necessity to have more flexibility in squaring up with the available dancers. Gay people dance opposite roles, naturally. At some adult square dance clubs and events, dancers may be expected to come with a partner, dance mostly--in some cases exclusively-- with that partner. Although such clubs may are becoming rare as the square dance population ages and couples are split by death or divorce, they may still be found. Other clubs allow both couples and singles as members. In youth square dancing, it is common for dancers to have a new partner for each tip, in some cases this is accomplished by dancers joining squares as individuals with other dancers coming along to be their partners, rather than by any sort of pre-arrangement. Thus, at most clubs with a significant number of youth dancers, there is no requirement that dancers come with a partner and individual dancers are accommodated.

In general, younger people learn more than older people, so on average clubs with younger dancers teach a given dance program in a shorter period of time. Some groups teach youth the basics in short-format classes such as a one-week day camp or a one day "blast" class. At some clubs, teens have been known to learn the calls by being "pulled through" sequences by their more experienced friends.

Leo Carrillo State Park

Leo Carrillo State Park is a state park in Los Angeles County, United States. Situated along the Malibu coast, the park is a component of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. With 1.5 miles of beach, the parkland stretches into the Santa Monica Mountains. The park has expanded into Ventura County and includes management of County Line Beach. California State Route 1 runs through the park, where it intersects with the western terminus of the Mulholland Highway; the 2,513-acre park was established in 1953. It is named for conservationist Leo Carrillo, who served on the State Parks commission; the Woolsey Fire was a destructive wildfire that started inland many miles away and raced through canyons and mountains in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties to the coastline. The fire burned 96,949 acres of land; the fire destroyed 1,643 structures, killed three people, prompted the evacuation of more than 295,000 people. It was one of several fires in California; the 2018 fire burned through the entire park.

The equipment for the Junior Lifeguard program, destroyed in the fire was replaced by a donation from a group of Australian surf lifeguard associations, led by the Maroochydore Surf Life Saving Club. The campgrounds reopened after work crews spent seven months cleaning up. Leo Carrillo State Park offers swimming, windsurfing, surf fishing, beachcombing. Beachgoers can explore tide pools, sea caves, reefs. Inland there is a backcountry hiking trails. Actors such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lewis, Nancy Sinatra, Dick Clark and other celebrities have been featured in films shot here. In the popular 1970s TV show The Rockford Files, starring James Garner, it was the first season's opening scene of episode 1 airing September 13, 1974, it was featured in an episode of Huell Howser's TV series California's Golden Parks. During the final scenes of the Tom Petty's "Mary Jane's Last Dance" music video, Petty is seen carrying Kim Basinger through a cave before placing her in the water. In ‘’The Big Lebowski’’, it was mentioned by Walter Sobchak John Goodman during the eulogy of Donald Theodore Kerabatsos Steve Buscemi as one of the many places Donny surfed.

Tweed Daily News

The Tweed Daily News is a daily newspaper serving the Tweed Heads, New South Wales area of Australia. The newspaper is owned by News Corp Australia; the Tweed Daily News is circulated to the Tweed Shire community stretching from Palm Beach, south to Pottsville, New South Wales. The circulation of the Tweed Daily News is 5,144 on Saturday; the Tweed Daily News website is part of News Corp Australia's News Regional Media network. The Tweed Daily News started life in 1888 as the Tweed and Brunswick Advocate and the South Queensland Record made its appearance at the end of October 1888; the paper was started by William Robert Baker. Mr Baker and his two apprentices Norman MacKinon and James McLeod set about producing the paper, the forerunner to today's Tweed Daily News; the paper started as a weekly paper a bi-weekly, over the years changed names and formats several times. However, on the first day of January in 1914, the bi-weekly papers were combined to introduce the district's first daily newspaper - The Tweed Daily.

After the early days of patiently setting every letter by hand, The Tweed Daily took a major step forward in 1970 when it became the second daily newspaper in Australia to install an offset printing press. Nowadays publishing is done on a computer system and the company's papers are printed at sister sites in Ballina and Yandina. List of newspapers in Australia Tweed Daily News
