The Senate today is expected to complete its work on NAFCU-backed S. 754, the “Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act” (CISA), a bill that encourages faster, more efficient sharing of cyber-threat information among the business and government sectors.Last week, the Senate invoked cloture on a manager’s amendment, which set the stage for the chamber to complete consideration and vote on the bill today.Several amendments were considered for this bill, including one from Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., which would have made companies liable for inadvertent violations of terms of service or privacy agreements. NAFCU opposed the amendment, which was later voted down.NAFCU also signed on to a joint letter with three other financial trades to raise concerns about other proposed amendments, including those introduced by Sens. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Al Franken, D-Minn., Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., regarding the definition of a cyber threats, how long the measure would be in effect, and other aspects of the bill. The trades argue that the amendments would create ambiguities and complications in the bill’s language and otherwise undermine the measure. continue reading » 21SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
(REUTERS)-Dean Elgar failed to join a select group of South Africa batsman while New Zealand took three late wickets to leave the first Test at University Oval delicately poised at the end of the fourth day on Saturday.South Africa were 224 for six at the close of play in a chilly Dunedin with a lead of 191 runs entering the final day on a pitch that is turning but offering little assistance for the pace bowlers and is proving difficult to score from.Captain Faf du Plessis was on 56 at the close of play, with Vernon Philander on one after New Zealand had taken three wickets after tea, including Elgar, who was dropped twice and overturned a caught behind decision during his innings.The 29-year-old had been seeking to become the sixth South Africa batsman to score a century in both innings of a test but fell short when he was caught by Kane Williamson for 89 from offspinner Jeetan Patel. He scored 140 in the first innings.Temba Bavuma was then bowled by Mitchell Santner for six and Quinton de Kock also bowled by Patel for four in gloomy conditions, with players leaving the field with nine overs remaining.South Africa had begun the day with a five-run lead and nine wickets in hand and with rain forecast for the final day on Sunday, the hosts needed to make the most of their opportunities to try to dismiss the visitors cheaply.New Zealand, however, only had themselves to blame for not being in a better position having dropped Elgar twice and JP Duminy once.The hosts were also further hampered with opening bowler Trent Boult trudging off the field from midway through the middle session with a groin strain.It is also debatable whether batsman Ross Taylor would bat in the second innings after he suffered a torn calf muscle in the first.South Africa lost just two wickets in the first two sessions when Duminy was trapped in front by Neil Wagner for 39 after lunch, while Hashim Amla was dismissed for 24 early in a disrupted first session.Play had been due to begin 10 minutes earlier than the scheduled start of 1100 (2200 GMT) after a fire alarm in the main stand forced the evacuation of the entire venue and held up play for about 30 minutes on Friday.

League leading scorer Godwin Obaje as well as Alhassan Ibrahim aka ‘Muazam’ both had chances to win the game for the home team, but Rangers Ghanaian goalkeeper Nana Bonsu was in inspired form.Obaje’s goal-bound shot in stoppage time came off the post to the huge relief of Rangers.The biggest upset of the day was struggling Plateau United’s 1-0 win at Abia Warriors.Ibeh Johnson scored the winning goal for the Jos club on 82 minutes.In other league matches, IfeanyiUbah were also held to a scoreless draw by a resurgent Sunshine Stars in Nnewi while Lobi Stars scraped past Heartland 1-0.In Port Harcourt, after holding off strongly in the first half, El Kanemi Warriors succumbed to the supremacy of Enyimba of Aba to concede two quick goals in the second half with no reply in their NPFL Match-day 25 clash at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium.Man-of-the-Match Nzube Anaezemba flew into Joseph Osadiaye’s free kick and delivered a low header to put Enyimba up in the 53rd minute and Bassey Ezekiel sealed victory for the Aba boys with a drive from the box line in the 69th minute, just three minutes after he came off the bench to substitute Andrew Abalogu.El Kanemi had unsettled Enyimba in the early minutes of the game with a long throw into the box for a cluster of waiting lanky strikers but goalkeeper Moses Ocheye rise promptly to duty, lifting higher to save the situation.Chinedu Ohanachom rubbed it in for the Maiduguri warriors as he drove in from the flank, dusting a couple of Enyimba’s defenders but he was stopped in the box by captain Chinedu Udoji.Enyimba recovered quickly afterwards and began to push back on the visitors as Ojo Oluwadare attempted a long range shot which flew over but El Kanemi replied with Isiaka Olawale stepping into a loose chance which he executed feebly off target. He tried yet another trick in the 22nd minute when he sighted Moses Ocheye off his line and quickly delivered a lob that sailed slightly over the bar.Enyimba came closest to scoring in the first half when Stephen Chinedu dribbled in but fluffed a one-on-one chance with George Michael, in goal for El Kanemi.Down by two goals in the second half, Coach Ladan Bosso threw everything in the last quarter but all the chances for El Kanemi produced no consolation as Isiaka Olawale’s 84th minute powerful strike was parried for corner by Ocheye.Most biting was Bambai Mohammed’s golden miss in the 87th minute when he arrived earlier to receive a counter and Ocheye come out late in the bid to stop him but Bambai lobbed over the cross bar even with Ocheye clearly out of his box with no defender behind him.The result was especially important for Enyimba to get on track for the league title chase and hopefully book another berth for the continentals next season.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Wikki Tourists of Bauchi remained on top of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) yesterday after visiting Enugu Rangers snatched a point from their goalless draw in the north eastern city.The NPFL leaders remain two points clear of closest rivals Rangers on 42 points, but would have been a lot happier had they won in front of their fans to extend their lead at the top to five points.
