Meanwhile President Vladimir Putin said Friday that Moscow would be satisfied with the price of crude oil dropping to $60 per barrel, from its recent level of around $80. Russia and Saudi Arabia are the key movers behind a pact between OPEC and other producers that has limited production since 2017 but which experts fear may soon lead to a spike in prices.

  • Mother and child die as baby poisoned through breast milk after snake bite

    Golocal247.com news

    An Indian woman who was bitten by a snake in her sleep and unknowingly breastfed poisoned milk to her daughter has died along with the child, police said Friday. The 35-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh state did not realise she had been bitten when she woke and breastfed her daughter. The three-year-old girl and the mother fell ill on Thursday and both died before they could reach hospital, police inspector Vijay Singh told AFP. The family spotted the snake in another room but the creature escaped. A post-mortem is to be carried out but police have registered a case of accidental death, the officer added. India is home to some 300 snake species and 60 are highly venomous, including the Indian cobra, krait, Russell's viper and saw-scaled viper. India accounts for 46,000 of the 100,000 snakebite deaths around the world each year, according to a 2011 study by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

  • Canada restaurant blast: Bomb explosion injures 15 people in Mississauga as two suspects flee

    Golocal247.com news

    Canadian police are hunting for two men who set off a homemade bomb in an Indian restaurant in Mississauga, injuring 15 people on Thursday evening.  Footage released by police shows the two suspects entering the city's Bombay Bhel restaurant with an object resembling a paint can moments before the bomb went off. The pair fled the scene late on Thursday and a manhunt is under way. The motive for the attack is unknown and there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Rafael Conceicao, a student from Sao Paulo, Brazil, was near the restaurant when the explosion occurred.  "Glass was broken in the street ... Everything was destroyed. Lots of blood on the floor. Many people were screaming. They were trying to run out from the restaurant," he said. Officials said three Indian-Canadians suffered critical injuries but are in a stable condition in hospital.  The remaining 12 victims suffered minor and superficial injuries, police said.

We haven't ruled anything out as we start our investigation," said Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans. "Every police resource is being used right now to locate the people responsible for this horrendous act." Peel Regional Police said they received a call at just after 10.30pm local time (3.30am BST).

"It was an extremely horrific and sad incident that happened at our Hwy 10 location," the restaurant said in a Facebook post. Mississauga, which is Canada's sixth largest city and has a population of 700,000, is near Lake Ontario and about 20 miles west of Toronto.

  • Amazon Alexa recorded owner's conversation and sent to 'random' contact, couple complains  

    Golocal247.com news

    A woman whose private conversation with her husband was recorded by their Amazon Alexa and sent to a friend by email without their knowledge said she feels "invaded" by the worrying intrusion. Luckily for the the Oregon couple, the discussion picked up by the hands-free devices placed around their home went no further than the subject of hardwood flooring. But Danielle, who did not want to give her last name in local press reports, said that although the conversation was not highly personal, she nevertheless felt her privacy had been compromised by what Amazon said was a series of unfortunate events. Every room in the family home in Portland is wired with the devices, which control the home's heat, lighting and security system. Amazon said Alexa misinterpreted the conversation as a set of demands which led to the conversation being packaged up and sent to a seemingly random contact. During the conversation in question, Danielle received a call from one of her husband's employees, warning the couple: "unplug your Alexa devices right now! You're being hacked.” "We unplugged all of them and he proceeded to tell us that he had received audio files of recordings from inside our house," she told her local ABC news station.  "At first, my husband was, like, 'no you didn't!' And the (recipient of the message) said 'You sat there talking about hardwood floors.' And we said, 'oh gosh, you really did hear us.'" She unplugged all of her devices and contacted Amazon, who sent engineers to her house. Danielle said they apologised to her profusely. However, she said the device did not audibly advise her it was preparing to send the recording, which it is programmed to do. Amazon has given an explanation for the strange event, insisting its devices do not listen to customers unless they are "woken up" by the word “Alexa.” According to the company, in this instance an “unlikely” series of events occurred, which lead to the device thinking the pair wanted their conversation about hardwood floors recorded and sent to their friend. Amazon Alexa | Everything you need to know A spokesperson explained: "Echo woke up due to a word in background conversation sounding like 'Alexa.' Then, the subsequent conversation was heard as a 'send message' request. "At which point, Alexa said out loud 'To whom?' At which point, the background conversation was interpreted as a name in the customer’s contact list. Alexa then asked out loud, '[contact name], right?' "Alexa then interpreted background conversation as 'right'. As unlikely as this string of events is, we are evaluating options to make this case even less likely." Many have been suspicious of the company encouraging customers to place listening devices in every room of their homes. However, Amazon maintains this event was a malfunction, and not proof that Alexa is always “listening.” In the past, the company has filed patent applications for more invasive listening devices, which record all of the time. One such application included an algorithm that would analyse when people say they “love” or “bought” something.  This patent included a diagram in which two people having a telephone conversation were given separate targeted advertisements after they hung up. There were also worries in 2016 when scientists found that voice assistants could be woken up by sounds unintelligible to humans. The group found that commands could be hidden in white noise, with the device switching on and going to websites without being asked by a human. In May, these findings went further, with researchers claiming they could embed commands directly into recordings of music or spoken text. This could mean that as a human listens to music, the voice assistant may hear an instruction to send a message, or add a product to a shopping list.
