Hong Kong university protesters defy surrender warnings
Dozens of exhausted pro-democracy protesters barricaded inside a Hong Kong university defied warnings Tuesday to surrender, as a police siege of the campus dragged into a third day and China sent fresh signals that its patience with nearly six months of unrest was running out. High school students were among those holed up inside the battered Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), fearing arrest or being shot at by police, with many huddled in silver emergency survival blankets to keep themselves warm. Some protesters escaped overnight by slithering down ropes from a footbridge to a road below, where they were whisked away on motorbikes, while others disappeared into manholes.

Mobile security perceptions don't approach reality. And that's a problem.
In general, security vendors love consumer surveys where consumers say that they would never, ever, ever do business with a retailer or a bank with poor security practices. But consumers have historically been terrible predictors of their own behavior, and they also tend to tell retailers and banks what they want to hear, rather than the truth.

And the truth, based on the public financial filings of plenty of companies that have suffered public data breaches, is that consumers — partially thanks to zero liability programs from the payment card companies — tend to not change retailers or banks when such data breaches happen. Why? Quite a few reasons. First, zero liability sees to it that they don't lose any money (it actually limits losses to $50, but almost no business enforces that, and they tend to simply eat all of the consumer losses). If consumers lost large amounts of money from breached retailers or banks, yes, they'd flee, but that doesn't happen.

New Epstein accuser sues estate and calls on Prince Andrew to share information
Woman says sex offender committed ‘vicious, prolonged sexual assault' against her when she was 15Jane Doe 15 speaks at a news conference in Los Angeles along with her lawyer Gloria Allred. Photograph: Lucy Nicholson/ReutersA woman who claims Jeffrey Epstein committed a "vicious, prolonged sexual assault" against her when she was 15 has called on Prince Andrew to come forward with information about the convicted sex offender.The new accuser, who identifies herself as "Jane Doe 15", appealed to the Duke of York at a press conference on Monday, where she and the lawyer Gloria Allred announced her lawsuit against Epstein's estate. She is one of about a dozen women suing the late financier's estate for alleged sexual abuses."Prince Andrew, and any others that are close to Epstein, should come forward and give a statement under oath on what information they have," Jane Doe 15 said.Allred said that she had called upon Andrew to "voluntarily meet with the FBI and prosecutors who are investigating this criminal case in New York, and also to provide his deposition under oath".Their entreaty comes in the wake of a bombshell BBC Newsnight interview in which Andrew was pressed on his friendship with Epstein - who killed himself in a Manhattan jail several months ago following his arrest on sex trafficking charges.Andrew claims he met Epstein through Ghislaine Maxwell - the daughter of the media baron Robert Maxwell - who has been accused of serving as Epstein's procurer.

Poll: Buttigieg Remains at Zero Percent among Black Voters in South Carolina
A new Quinnipiac University poll of South Carolina voters found South Bend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg still at zero percent among black voters, despite the campaign's release of its comprehensive "Douglass Plan," which details policies designed to address racial inequality.The poll showed former vice president Joe Biden in the lead with 44 percent of the African American vote — which accounts for two thirds of the primary vote — and 33 percent overall, followed by progressive senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Buttigieg rounded out the top four with six percent overall, and tied for third with 11 percent of white primary voters, but zero percent among black voters."Unlike tight races in Iowa and New Hampshire, South Carolina has a clear frontrunner in the Democratic primary. Former Vice President Joe Biden has broad based appeal, with particularly strong leads among black and moderate/conservative voters," Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow said in the release.Despite taking the lead in several Iowa polls, the Buttigieg campaign has come under fire in recent days for its marketing of the Douglass plan, which Buttigieg has called "the most comprehensive vision put forward by a 2020 candidate on the question of how we're going to tackle systemic racism in this country." Several black leaders in South Carolina said that their consulting on the plan was spun as an endorsement of the candidate, while the campaign itself has come under criticism for using a
