حکـم اعـــدام بابک زنجانــــی ابلاغ شد .
غلامحسین محسنی اژه‌ای، روز یکشنبه سوم بهمن در نشست خبری با بیان اینکه حکم اعدام دو نفر از متهمان پرونده بابک زنجانی نقض شده و تحقیق دوباره از آنان آغاز شده است، گفت که حکم اعدام بابک زنجانی به او ابلاغ شده است. بابک زنجانی که در پی کمک به فروش نفت ایران در دولت احمدی نژاد، متهم به پرداخت نکردن طلب ۱۰ هزار میلیارد تومانی وزارت نفت شد، پس از یک محاکمه طولانی اسفند ماه گذشته به اعدام محکوم شد. مسئولان دستگاه قضایی ایران اعلام کردند که در صورت پرداخت شدن بدهی این میلیاردر جوان، احتمال تغییر حکم او وجود دارد. وزارت نفت نیز که طلبکار اصلی بابک زنجانی است، اجرای حکم اعدام او را بی نتیجه دانسته است. با این حال به نظر می‌رسد با تایید حکم اعدام از سوی دیوان عالی کشور و ابلاغ آن به آقای زنجانی، این متهم یک گاه دیگر اجرای حکم نزدیکتر شده باشد. از سوی دیگر آقای اژه ای روز یکشنبه اعلام کرد که تحقیقات از متهم دیگر این پرونده که در خارج از کشور بازداشت و به ایران منتقل شده، آغاز شده است. هفته گذشته رسانه‌های ایران به نقل از منابع قضایی اعلام کردند که متهم، ع . ز . م توسط پلیس بین‌الملل در جمهوری دومینیکن بازداشت و به ایران منتقل شده است. در پی آن، دادستان تهران با اعلام گوشه ای اتهامات این فرد، از جمله همدستی با بابک زنجانی برای خرید بانک کنت تاجیکستان به قیمت چهار میلیون دلار و واگذاری آن به بانک ملت به مبلغ ۱۶۰ میلیون یورو، او را جع

۲ گیاه دارویی ضد سرطان
۲ گیاه دارویی ضد سرطان,چای سبز و زردچوبه ارسینه : یکی از چای های پر خاصیت و مفید برای بدن چای سبز میباشد که موادی همانند کاتچین در آن خاصیت ضدسرطانی بودن را به آن افزوده است.زردچوبه یک نوع گیاه میباشد که پودرش به رنگ زرد تیره‌ ارائه میشود و از گیاهان پر خاصیت نیز حساب میشود.این ۲ بر طبق مطالعات و آزمایشاتی که انجام شده برای درمان سرطان بسیار موثر هستند. کاتچین از بروز دیابت، التهاب‌های حاد و استرس اکسیداتیو پیشگیری می‌کند. تمام این مسائل بویژه در افراد چاق مسبب رشد تومورهای سرطانی است. زردچوبه ادویه‌ای است که در ترکیب ادویه کاری هم وجود دارد و بررسی‌های انجام شده در سال ۲۰۱۵ اثبات کرد رژیم‌های غذایی که در آن از این ادویه به اندازه و نه به افراط استفاده می‌شود می‌تواند به نوعی از ابتلای فرد به سرطان کبد پیشگیری کند. به نقل از medisite، چای سبز نیز خاصیت مشابهی دارد و مشخص شده افرادی که روزانه ۲ تا ۳ فنجان چای سبز می‌نوشند به دلیل کاتچینی که در این نوشیدنی وجود دارد کمتر در معرض سرطان‌های دستگاه گوارش هستند.کاتچین از بروز دیابت، التهاب‌های حاد و استرس اکسیداتیو پیشگیری می‌کند. تمام این مسائل بویژه در افراد چاق مسبب رشد تومورهای سرطانی است. مجله پزشکی ارسینه

دونالد ترامپ، رئیس‌جمهور آمریکا، در دومین روز ریاست جمهوری خود، نخستین مکالمه تلفنی‌اش را با بنیامین نتانیاهو، نخست‌وزیر اسرائیل، انجام داد، و در اشاره‌ای کوتاه به این گفت‌وگوی تلفنی آن را «بسیار دلپذیر» توصیف کرد. گفت‌وگوی تلفنی آقای ترامپ و آقای نتانیاهو، روز یکشنبه سوم بهمن صورت گرفت و آقای ترامپ در پاسخ به پرسش‌های خبرنگاران در حاشیه مراسم سوگند کارکنان کاخ سفید، بدون ذکر جزئیات بیشتر آن را دلپذیر توصیف کرد. برپایه گزارش رویترز، آقای نتانیاهو هم این گفت‌وگوی تلفنی را »بسیار گرم» توصیف کرده، و خبر داده است که رئیس‌جمهور آمریکا از او برای دیدار از کاخ سفید در ماه آینده میلادی دعوت کرده است. بیانیه دفتر نخست‌وزیری اسرائیل در این زمینه می‌گوید که دو طرف در این گفت‌وگو تلفنی در مورد توافق هسته‌ای ایران، روند صلح با فلسطینی‌ها و مسائل دیگر تبادل نظر کرده‌اند. ساعاتی قبل از این گفت‌وگو، آقای نتانیاهو در نشست دولت خود در اورشلیم خبر داده بود، تماس تلفنی‌اش با آقای ترامپ حول «خطرات ایران»، مسائل مربوط به فلسطینی ها و سوریه است. رسانه‌های اسرائیل گزارش داده‌اند، «پرونده هسته‌ای و تحرکات منطقه‌ای ایران» در دستور کار مشترک اسرائیل و آمریکا در دوران ریاست جمهوری جدید آمریکا قرار می‌گیرد. یک روز قبل از این مکالمه تلفنی، کانال یوتیوب دفتر نخست‌وزیری اسرائیل، شنبه شب دوم بهمن، پیام ویدیویی از بنیامین نتانیاهو خطاب به مردم ایران را منتشر کرد. نخست‌وزیر اسرائیل در این پیام در حالی که با مردم ایران سخن می‌گفت، به ایرانیان این گونه خبر داد که «من قصد دارم به زودی با پرزیدنت ترامپ در باره راه‌های رویارویی با تهدیدات رژیم ایران صحبت کنم؛ همان رژیمی که خواهان نابودی اسرائیل است». نخست‌وزیر اسرائیل در مورد چرایی صدور پیام بی‌سابقه خود به مردم ایران افزود، «اخیراً به ذهنم خطور کرد که تا کنون بسیار درباره رژیم ایران صحبت کرده‌ام، ولی به میزان کافی در باره مردم ایران، و به عبارتی با مردم ایران، سخن نگفته‌ام». آقای نتانیاهو در این پیام به مردم ایران گفت، «رژیم با تکرار هر روزه خواست نابودی اسرائیل، امیدوار است که دشمنی را بین ما نهادینه کند؛ اما چنین نخواهد شد؛ ما دوست شما هستیم؛ نه دشمن شما».

خوردنی ها و نخوردنی های برای دیابتی ها
خوردنی ها و نخوردنی های برای دیابتی ها غذاها یی که دیابتی ها باید بخورند و غذاهایی که دیابتی ها باید از خوردن آن پرهیز کنند. دکتر پیک : از نقطه نظر سلامت ،خوردن امر بسیار مهمی محسوب می شود. مهمترین نگرانی در کنترل دیابت کنترل میزان قند خون فرد در محدودۀ طبیعی است، به این منظور فرد دیابتی باید از خوردن برخی از غذاها پرهیز کند و برخی دیگر را که برای کنترل دیابت مفید هستند، مصرف کند. افرد مبتلا به دیابت باید تلاش کنند که در محدودۀ وزن سلامت باقی بمانند و رژیمی را تبعیت کنند که موارد زیر در آن رعایت شده باشد. ٭کم چرب ٭کم قند ٭کم نمک ٭حداقل ۵ وعده میوه و سبزی تازه ٭غذاهایی که حاوی کربوهیدرات های نشاسته ای است در آن زیاد باشد نظیر نان وبرنج. بطور کلی غذایی وجود ندارد که دیابتی ها کلاً از خوردن آن منع شده باشند و نیازی به حذف کامل شکر و مواد شیرین نیست . اما افراد مبتلا به دیابت باید سعی کنند که از غذاهایی که دارای مقدار زیادی قند و چربی هستند، بمقدار کم مصرف کنند. بنابراین اگربه دیابت مبتلا هستید شما می توانید یک بار در ماه به خودتان اجازۀ خوردن کیک یا بیسکویت را بدهید. خوردن چه غذاهایی برای افراد دیابتی مفید است. بیماران دیابتی باید مقادیر زیادی میوه و سبزیجات حاوی فیبر زیاد مصرف کنند. مصرف این نوع غذاها نیاز به انسولین را در بدن کاهش می دهد و دلیلش اینست که این غذاها قند را بتدریج به سلولهای بدن تحویل می دهند. رژیم های حاوی فیبر بالا دارای مقدار کروم بالاتری هستند که این مادۀ معدنی برای درمان دیابت بسیار مفید است. بهمین علت مصرف سبزیجات، پیاز، سیر، زنجبیل، تربچۀ قرمز، اسفناج، کلم برگ، خیار، هویج، گوجه فرنگی، کلم و کدوی سبز برای درمان دیابت بسیار مفید هستند. ماش و لوبیای قرمز تازه و موز نرسیدۀ پخته مواردی هستند که خوردن آنها به بیماران دیابتی توصیه می شود. دانه های شنبلیله که در آب خیس خورده باشد برای بیماران دیابتی مناسب است در مورد میوه ها توصیه می شود که از میوه هایی نظیر میوۀ گوآوا( guava میوه ای از هندوستان که نام دیگر آن زیتون جنوبی است) ، تمشک، انجیر(تازه کم شیرین)، میوۀ کیوی، سیب، مرکبات، آب انار استفاده کنند. بهتر است این میوه ها را بخشی از وعدۀ صبحانه خود قرار دهید. از آنجائیکه آب میوه دارای فروکتوز (قند میوه) بیشتری است، باعث می شود قندخون شما سریعتر افزایش یابد. بنابراین بهتراست افراد دیابتی آب میوه را همراه با وعدۀ اصلی غذایشان مصرف کنند و بیش از یک لیوان کوچک در روز آب میوه ننوشند. چند توصیۀ مهم ٭ اگر می خواهید مادۀ شیرینی بخورید به جای شکر ازخرما یا عسل ( به مقدار خیلی جزئی) استفاده کنید. ٭ از برنج قهوه ای به جای برنج سفید استفاده کنید چنانچه از دانه های جوانه زده استفاده می کنید مجاز بخوردن مقدار کمی از آن هستید. ٭روغنهایی نظیر روغن زیتون و روغن بادام زمینی برای افراد دیابتی مفید است، اما باز هم به مقدار مجاز توصیه شدۀ آن توجه کنید. ٭مقدار زیادی آب بنوشید (روزانه ۸ تا ۱۰ لیوان). ٭یک بار در هفته ماهی یا غذاهای دریای برای تأمین اسیدهای چرب امگا ۳ مصرف کنید. ادویه هایی نظیر فلفل سیاه، فلفل تند قرمز، خردل و مواد گیاهی و ادویۀ خوراکی را در غذاهایتان استفاده کنید. سبزیجات خام را به مقدار زیاد مصرف کنید مصرف سبزیجات پخته باعث افزایش سریع قندخون می گردد. لبنیات بدون چربی مصرف کنید مثل شیر بدون چربی، ماست و پنیر بدون چربی، ماست ساده و از خوردن پنیرها لور ( Cottage cheese) بپرهیزید زیرا مقدار زیادی کربوهیدرات دارد. برخی از گیاهان و سبزیجات بصورت گیاهان دارویی برای افراد دیابتی تجویز می شود نظیر هندوانۀ ابوجهل Bitter melon و کدوی تلخ Bitter Groud که حتماً باید با مشورت پزشک معالج خود از این گونه داروهای گیاهی استفاده کنید. چه نوع غذاهایی را نباید افراد دیابتی مصرف کنند؟ ٭افراد دیابتی باید گلاً از غذاهای فرآوری شده، شکر سفید، آرد سفید، غذاهایی که محتوی تغذیه ای پائینی دارند(Junk food مثل پفک و…) صرفنظر کنند. از خوردن شیرینجات،گلوگز، قندمیوه(فروکتوز)، کیک، بستنی، شکلات، نوشابه های غیر الکلی ،خامه و غذاهای سرخ شده بپرهیزند.

نتانیاهو بیش از خامنه ای دوست مردم ایران و کمتر از او دشمن ملت ایران است
خامنه ای دشمن ملت ایران است زیرا آنچه او از ملت توقع دارد داعشی بودن در پندار گفتار و کردار است و مردم ایران هر روز بیش از دیروز از آنچه او می خواهد فاصله می گیرند. نتانیاهو اما برای امنیت اسرائیل دقیقا همان چیزی را می خواهد که ملت می خواهند یعنی فاصله گرفتن مردم ایران از داعشی گری و ورود به دنیای مدرن. البته باید مراقب بود که نتانیاهو برای آنچه می خواهد مرتکب عجله و توسل به زور و بمب و موشک نشود که در آن صورت با ایرانیان دشمن خواهد بود.

SEC now investigating Yahoo's massive data breaches

SEC now investigating Yahoo's massive data breachesThe Securities and Exchange Commission is now investigating a pair of Yahoo data breaches reported in 2016 to see if the company should have reported the breaches to investors sooner.  While the SEC investigation is in the early stages, according to the Wall Street Journal , a case brought against Yahoo could help clarify the timeline for companies to reveal such hacks.  SEE ALSO: Marissa Mayer is stepping down from Yahoo's board of directors — if the Verizon deal goes through The disclosures also prompted Verizon, which had reached a deal to acquire Yahoo before the hacks were announced, to look into how the hacks may have affected Yahoo's user numbers. At one point, after the second hack was announced, Verizon was reportedly considering exiting the deal but, according to Sunday night's WSJ report, Verizon says the deal is still in place.  The first data breach occurred in 2014, affecting up to 500 million users, and was reported in September 2016. Yahoo confirmed that user account information was stolen from the company’s network "in late 2014 by what it believes is a state-sponsored actor."  The company suggested at the time that the stolen information could include personal credentials such names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority protected by bcrypt) and even security questions and answers. The ongoing investigation also revealed that unprotected passwords, payment card data and bank account information were not included in the stolen information, since that info isn't stored in the affected system. The second incident occurred in August 2013, impacting nearly one billion users, and was reported in December 2016. That hack involved names, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, MD5-hashed passwords (a form of encryption now widely considered insecure) and security question answers, according to the company.  Additional reporting by Nicole Galucci and Gianluca Mezzofiore BONUS: Hackers Play ‘Space Invaders’ on Billboard, Get Rewarded
