What you Need to Know in Ottawa Today


  • If you use the "Cloud" to backup up your phone and laptop photos, you should know that experts believe the leak of iCloud nude photos of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton were due to hackers learning their passwords by simply answering their security questions like: "What's your mothers' maiden name?"
  • Although Apple seems to have patched a vulnerability in iCloud yesterday, there have been a number of cases in Britain and the U.S. where passwords were easy to discover by reading biographies and other publicly accesible information.
  • The United Kingdom is stepping in with new laws that would give police the power to seize the passports of Britains suspected of fighting with terrorist groups such as ISIS.
  • Prime Minister Harper is leaving for the UK today where he will participate in bilateral trade talks before attending the NATO meetings in Wales on Thursday. Pressure is expected to be heavy on Canada to increase our military budget.
  • In Business: History shows September is not stock friendly, but this year seems different.
  • In Sports: The Canadian run at the U.S. Open is over. Milos Raonic was eliminated by Kei Nishikori in five sets. The match started at 10 o'clock last night and at 2:26 this morning! Eugenie Bouchard fell to Russia's Ekatarina Makarova in straight sets.
