A South Korean Buddhist order said Saturday it will hold a joint memorial service in North Korea later this month to mark the anniversary of its founder’s death.
The Cheontae Order said it agreed during a meeting with officials from the North’s Korea Buddhist Federation on Thursday to hold the joint memorial service to mark the 912th anniversary of the passing of Uicheon on Nov. 26.
Founded by Uicheon, a Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392) monk, the Cheontae school has since become the second-largest Buddhist sect in South Korea.
The service will take place at Ryongtong Temple in Kaesong, just north of the inter-Korean border, with some South Korean Buddhists attending, it said.
The North has yet to decide how many of its Buddhists will attend.
During the talks, the two sides also decided to push for a seminar to discuss restoring a road for Buddhist pilgrimage tours in Kaesong and its adjacent cities and increasing the world’s awareness of Kaesong’s cultural assets, according to the Buddhist group. (Yonhap)

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (Yonhap) — U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping will discuss ways to use a “mix of diplomacy and sanctions” to end North Korea’s nuclear program when they hold summit talks next week, a senior White House official said Friday.
Evan Medeiros, senior director for Asian affairs at the National Security Council, made the remark during a briefing at the Foreign Press Center previewing Obama’s trip to China next week, saying the U.S. believes the North’s denuclearization should be the “paramount priority” between Washington and Beijing.
“What I can say is that North Korea is certainly on the agenda. It’s one of the principal threats to the stability and security in Northeast Asia,” he said. “The two presidents will discuss the most effective ways to use a mix of diplomacy and sanctions to get North Korea to come into compliance with its international obligations and its international commitments.”
Medeiros also said that the North Korea issue has always been “at the top of our Asia-Pacific agenda,” adding that Obama “cares deeply” about the issue because the North’s nuclear and missile capabilities present “a very clear and present threat to the United States and to our allies like South Korea.”
In meetings with Xi Jinping and other regional leaders, Obama plans to underscore the “priority we put on denuclearizing North Korea and figuring out new and creative ways in which we can get North Korea to recommit to its obligations and commitments,” he said.
When Obama meets with South Korean President Park Geun-hye, the two leaders will talk about a full range of issues between the two countries, including ways to enhance coordination and cooperation to “actively bring about the denuclearization of North Korea.”

A HBO está preparando mais uma produção que contém seu selo de qualidade.
Em breve, a emissora vai lançar uma série documental com histórias de vida dos atletas brasileiros que vão participar das próximas Olimpíadas, no Rio de Janeiro, em 2016. Com informações da coluna Outro Canal.
A produção ficará a cargo da O2 Filmes.
Desde 2011, quando a Disney fechou acordo para exibir seus filmes na Rede Telecine, a HBO vem com as séries como seu maior atrativo, tais como “Game of Thrones”, “Sr. Ávila”, além das nacionais como “O Negócio”.
Em novembro, a emissora também estreia “Os Três”.
Em 2015, a HBO pretende lançar um serviço on-demand nos Estados Unidos, onde o consumidor pagaria algo em torno de US$ 10, aquilo que já desembolsaria dentro do universo da televisão por assinatura. No entanto, o serviço não tem previsão de chegada para o Brasil.
Fora da televisão desde o fim da novela “Joia Rara”, o ator Tiago Abravanel tem se dedicado mais à sua carreira de cantor, e tem conseguido bons feitos com isso.
Segundo o jornal Extra, o neto de Silvio Santos é um dos primeiros nomes confirmados para os shows de Réveillon na Praia de Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. O ator, cantor e apresentador vai performar o seu show num dos palcos que serão montados para a festa em homenagem aos 450 anos do Rio de Janeiro.
Seu Jorge é outro nome confirmado pela prefeitura da cidade, e também vai se apresentar. Os nomes de Beyoncé e da banda U2 não passam, por enquanto, de especulação, ou mesmo de um sonho quase impossível.
Tiago Abravanel ficou conhecido nacionalmente ao estrelar o musical “Tim Maia”, onde não só atuava como cantava. Com o destaque, ele foi convidado para papéis na televisão, atuando em novelas como “Amor e Revolução”, do SBT, e “Salve Jorge”, da Globo.
Tiago tem contrato com a emissora carioca até 2016 e está esperando ser escalado para novos trabalhos em breve.
Em reunião do conselho técnico, clubes e a Federação Cearense de Futebol (FCF) decidiram que o Campeonato Estadual de 2015 será realizado em 15 datas.
Após o veto da CBF, que não aprovou a decisão do encontro anterior, que pedia uma competição com 22 datas, ontem, os representantes dos 10 times e mais o presidente da FCF, Mauro Carmélio, optaram para que o Cearense da próxima temporada tenha 18 datas, com início marcado para o dia 14 de janeiro e o término no dia 3 de maio.
A fórmula de disputa ficou da seguinte forma. Os 10 clubes estão divididos em dois grupos de cinco times. Eles se enfrentam em partidas de ida e volta dentro da própria chave.
Os três melhores de cada grupo avançam para a 2ª Fase (um hexagonal). Nesta etapa, os três times de um grupo enfrentam as três equipes do outro, também em jogos de ida e volta (para não haver repetição de partidas da fase anterior). Os dois melhores desta segunda etapa fazem a grande decisão do Campeonato Cearense, em duas partidas.

Privacy breach: Security camera footage of a Canberra shopping centre from website Insecam.
On a warm summers day in the ACT a couple cheekily kiss among the shelves of a Canberra store, not knowing they’re being watched by a security camera – and the entire world.
Nearly 1000 security camera feeds from around Australia, including eight feeds and 46 cameras in the ACT region, can be watched online at the website Insecam, which features tens of thousands of cameras from around the world.
Among the ACT security cameras which can be viewed online are a number of shopping centres, the backroom of a chemist and a residential driveway.
The cameras’ longitude and latitude has been posted along with the live feed, as well the login and password which are often “admin” or “12345”.
The IP address of Insecam is linked to Moscow.
University of Canberra Centre of Internet Safety director Nigel Phair said said it was the responsibility of security systems owners to secure their own devices and protect the privacy of their fellow Canberrans.
He said the website had huge implications from a privacy perspective.
“For the average man on the streets there’s security cameras everywhere and if we want the general population to accept we require security cameras to have safer amenities generally, we’re not going to do it by having them wonder who has access to this camera,” Mr Phair said.
UNSW’s Cyberspace Law and Policy Centre co-convenor David Vaile said people should think twice before using internet-connected security devices.
“This is a great illustration of the illusion of security coming from surveillance and in fact you’re getting the opposite, you’re getting increase risk of unwanted and possibly quite hostile misuse of your information,” he said.
Mr Phair said incidents such as this where people’s privacy was compromised were likely to become more common as more devices become connected to the internet.
He said it was a timely reminder for everyone to buff up their internet security.
“I’m a believer, it’s great people do things like put security cameras on the internet so they can monitor them remotely, but that’s only great when there’s security attached to it,” he said.

A heated on-field exchange between Brisbane Roar teammates Shane Stefanutto and Jamie Young was the bitter postscript to a night of disappointment for the defending champions, whose 3-1 loss to Melbourne City makes them the first side to lose the opening four games of an A-League season.
Veteran Stefanutto and Young, in the Brisbane goal in place of the injured Michael Theo, had to be separated first by a Roar official and then by defender Jade North after a prolonged argument in plain view of fans and opposing benches.
The pair continued going at each other as frustration spilled over in the wake of another deflating performance. Brisbane has now sunk to the bottom of the ladder after conceding twice in the opening minutes before City substitute Marc Marino finished them off with a goal in the 83rd minute.

Both sides were winless going into the fixture but it was the Melbourne outfit, playing its first game without superstar David Villa, that rose to the occasion, stinging Brisbane through David Williams (eighth minute) and Mate Dugandzic (10th minute) to break through for coach John van’t Schip.
Brisbane coach Mike Mulvey said he hadn’t seen the incident but conceded there was a rising degree of frustration among his players, who he believes are playing well enough to win games but are yet to earn a single point.
“I can’t comment because I haven’t seen it. I need to see it. But you’ve got to understand players are going to be frustrated,” Mulvey said.
“I thought we deserved something out of the game. I thought we were very, very good at times tonight. We played some good quality football. What killed us were our defensive lapses as a team.”
Stefanutto spoke to SBS after the game but wasn’t asked about the argument. He said there was no lack of confidence within the camp but execution was sadly lacking.
“That’s not confidence, that’s just bad application,” Stefanutto said.
Former Socceroo and Manchester United keeper Mark Bosnich said on Fox Sports that Stefanutto should have kept the disagreement behind closed doors, instead of confronting Young on the pitch.
“Shane Stefanutto is part of the leadership group. I can’t believe he’s doing that to a goalkeeper just onto the scene. There’s no need for him as a senior player for him to do that on the pitch in front of everyone,” Bosnich said.
“When you start waving your arms around, forget about it. Go in the dressing rooms and sort it out.”
Mulvey has found himself squarely in the hot seat as the Roar struggles to fire in the absence of departed stars Besart Berisha and Ivan Franjic. Young has now conceded 10 goals in his four starts this season and it is crystal clear that at least one of his defenders has issues with aspects of his game.
With imported striker Mensur Kurtisi barely seeing 10 minutes of late action, and Thomas Broich being double-teamed by defenders now his wingman Berisha is off the scene, Mulvey must intervene to get his side firing again ahead of a testing road trip to Newcastle and Melbourne Victory.
“We need to find some answers. We need to have a good think and a bit of a rethink as well. Because clearly what we’re doing is not bringing the results we desire,” the Roar coach said.
New Socceroo Aaron Mooy was outstanding for City, while van’t Schip praised his side for standing up now the PR bubble surrounding Villa had popped.
“We had a lot of attention and publicity with the arrival of David Villa. We all enjoyed that he was with us. We played good games with David. We were not clinical in a lot of those games. We just had one win and we have to build on this,” he said.
