DSE Website - A Letdown In Trading Hours


DSE Website - A Letdown In Trading Hours

Fri, Aug 29th, 2008 2:24 pm BdST
Rohan Ziad
bdnews24.com business correspondent

Dhaka, Aug 30 (bdnews24.com)— Mahsudul M Islam, a young executive of a mobile phone company, carries his laptop to the office to keep an eye on his share prices.

"But this DSE website is hardly accessible during trading hours. It takes ages to refresh just once, let alone check the desired stock prices," he told bdnews24.com.

Islam claims the poor performance of the site has cost him significant losses.


Like him, many off-floor investors are losing money in the market as they find it hard to stay informed in time about falling prices of their holdings, when browsing the Dhaka Stock Exchange website (www.dsebd.org) during trading hours.

Retired banker Abdul Mannan, who tries to keep himself updated from his home through a desktop computer, said he was quite happy when his nephew first informed about how to check prices on the internet using the website.

But, echoing the young executive, he said: "I now see it takes a very long time to display the prices. It's not useful at all."

He said he thought it was far better trading at the brokerage houses.

"But, I am too old now to go Motijheel and stand in front of the computers at the brokerage houses," said Mannan, who has been investing in stocks for almost twelve years.

Huge crowds throng the front of workstations at the brokerage houses during trading hours.

The alternative is tiresome and almost impossible: to keep up with the latest share price information through time consuming phone calls to the brokerage house operators.

Thus, off-floor traders have almost solely to depend on the DSE website.

Nowadays, the number of investors who trade from in front of workstations at brokerage houses is only a small fraction of the total number of off-floor investors, who trade daily by phone from inside and outside Dhaka.

Investors across the country browse the DSE website from homes or offices during trading hours (9 am to 2 pm).

However, due to low bandwidths and high traffic, most users cannot browse the site properly during those crucial hours.

The DSE website is hosted on a server of Bangladesh Online Limited (BOL), with insufficient allocation of upload bandwidth, said a DSE official.

BOL clients get somewhat of an edge in browsing the site during trading hours, although most of the users throughout the country are clients of other internet service providers (ISPs) or mobile operators.

An official of the bourse's IT section told bdnews24.com that an increase in upload bandwidth would resolve the problem.

"Currently we have to handle twice the amount of our bandwidth capacity," said a manager of DSE's IT department, asking not to be named.

Meanwhile, DSE authorities says that they have been considering increasing their bandwidth but that it would be a costly endeavour.

"We are thinking about boosting our capacity but it would be very costly for us, and we don't receive any revenue from the website," said DSE chief executive Salahuddin Ahmed.

He told bdnews24.com that the IT department had been asked to assess feasibility of building a system so that off-floor traders can get price information by paying fees.

The delay in getting share price information throughout trading hours reduces opportunity for off-floor investors in taking instant investment decisions, according to market experts.

They said the inefficient DSE website was a major flaw of the market.

"Retail investors have no choice but battling with the crowds at their brokerage houses to trade," said Yaweer Sayeed, CEO of AIMS of Bangladesh, a private asset management company.

He said delays in price information greatly hamper efficiency of investment decisions.

"It is a major weakness of this market."

The number of retail investors in the market is rising by the day. Investors of various backgrounds, inside and outside Bangladesh, are choosing to put their money in the capital market.

As the DSE is trying to expand its operations outside Dhaka, retail investors from different districts are also growing in numbers—a positive sign for the country's financial sector and the economy as a whole.

Market expert Moin Al Kashem, of Prime Securities, told bdnews24.com a faster and more interactive website for the country's prime bourse was essential to create an investor-friendly environment.

"It is a key requirement to encourage more and more people to participate in the market."

iPhone security flaw exposes private data - Are You confident about your Personal Data in your iPhone ?


iPhone Security Flaw Exposes Private Data - Are You Confident About Your Personal Data in Your iPhone ?

NEW YORK, Aug 28 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - A security flaw in Apple Inc's (AAPL.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) iPhone allows unauthorized users to gain easy access to private contacts and e-mails even when the device is locked, but the company said a fix is on the way.

Popular technology blog Gizmodo and an online forum run by the Mac Rumors site showed that it took only three taps to gain access to locked iPhones, which run the latest 2.02 iPhone software.

A spokeswoman said in an e-mail that Apple was aware of the problem and was readying a software update to fix it. In the meantime, she recommended users set the iPhone's "Home" button to open up the phone's iPod music collection rather than the phone's "Favorites" menu.

The spokeswoman did not say when the software update would be made available.

The flaw could be seen as a momentary setback in Apple's ambitious plans to compete against Research In Motion (RIM.TO: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), whose BlackBerry smartphone has become a standard issue device in corporate businesses around the globe.

Earlier in August, technology research firm Gartner issued a report that said iPhone's software had met Gartner's minimum requirements for business support, although some issues persisted. The author of the report, Ken Dulaney, was not immediately reachable.

Last week, Apple released a software update for the iPhone that reportedly helped fix problems connecting to faster third-generation (3G) wireless networks, after receiving a flurry of online complaints from customers around the world.

Apple, which started selling the new 3G iPhone on July 11, has said it expected to sell 10 million iPhones by the end of 2008.

Network Booting in Various Way - PXE - Tftp - bootp -


Network Booting in Various Way - PXE - Tftp - rboot - bootp

Booting from the network is very usefull when you have unsupported I/O devices, diskless systems, or systems with broken hardware.

Booting from the network involves two machines: the boot server and the boot client, the latter being the PA-RISC system you are trying to start up, and the former, the machine that will serve over the network the files which the client needs. The rest of this section will extensively deal with setting up the boot server since this is probably the trickiest part.

Needless to say, all server-side setup is meant to be performed by the super-user, also known as root.

bootp: All 'recent' machines can boot using BOOTP, starting from 715/100, 715/120, and 712s.

RBOOT: Older ones, mostly early 715s, 710s and 725s need RBOOT which is very rear to find now.

Other this this above method of Remote Booting, DHCP, TFTP (Mostly CISCO Router) etc protocol can be use to do a 'Network Booting'.

Just remember, you need a Active Boot Server on Your Local Network, when you are going to start a Network Boot Service for Other PC/Server.


I will write details on every possible Network Booting System here on my 'Free Time' :P

Smart Relay Config relayhost in PostFix Like DS in Sendmail


Smart Relay Config relayhost in PostFix Like DS in Sendmail

Subject: Configuring 'Smart Relay' of Postfix MTA like DS in Sendmail [relayhost]
From: "Khalid Hossain"
To: "Ahamed Bauani"


Hi There

As you are expert of ‘Postfix’ in Bangladesh, would you please give a little solution for me (My Postfix SMTP server)? I am sure I will get the quick solution (copy & paste) from you.

In Sendmail MTA, there is a configuration option, which called "Smart Relay" or “DS” on ‘sendmail.ca’ configuration file. Using this "Smart Relay" configuration option, you can forward all email to another email server without any DNS query for MX. Regardless of MX entry, any outgoing email will be forward to any pre-define host who handle /filter /control /exchange any outgoing email traffic to open Internet

Let me give you an example:

My internal network has a server, running Sendmail as MTA, who acts as an SMTP server for my organization. This server handles both internal and external outgoing email traffic. When this Sendmail SMTP server receive an email from my network user, having recipient to 'user@external-domain.name' which is an 'valid external Internet Email address' (Not Really valid, just to give example) it forward the email to other server. This internal server has no permission to directly communicate to any Internet host for our firewall. If someone run MX query for domain 'external-domain.name', he or she will get a result that host 'mx-01.external-domain.name' is MX for that said domain and responsible to receive deliver incoming email for domain ‘external-domain.name’ to its destination user mailbox. Now I want my internal SMTP server which having 'Smart Relay" option enable using ‘DS’ will not delivery this email directly to 'mx-01.external-domain.name' but to my other email gateway which host name is 'smtp.internal.name' having IP address ‘10.10.4.3’. Host 'smtp.internal.name' is my only host/server, who run ESMTP and deliver email to open Internet depends on the value of MX record of destination domain. My query to you is "what will be the configuration parameter of same system in Postfix"? In my Sendmail, currently I use option called ‘DS’ value is ‘DS [10.10.4.3]’. I am sure that you understand what I want to do. I am going to remove ‘Sendmail’ from my internal SMTP server and replace Postfix on it.

In any standard 'sendmail.cf' contains:



===== sendmail.cf file start ==========
(Just the DS part, Removed other info for easy understand.)

# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
DS[10.10.4.3]

(Just the DS part, Removed other info for easy understand.)
===== Sendmail.cf file end ============



This configuration indicates that mail will be relay in host with IP address 10.10.4.3 regardless of any MX or DNS settings. IP: 10.10.4.3 may be my 'Mail Scanner', 'Content Filter' or ‘any kind of ESMTP Server’ who work as per RFC rules and control outgoing email.

My question is how can I setup ‘Smart Relay’ in Postfix, like the ‘DS’ option of Sendmail?

Thank you in advance from: Khalid Hossain
& Have a nice day…

--------- End of Support Request--------------

From: "Ahamed Bauani"
To: : "Khalid Hossain"


Hi Khalid

Postfix is the best MTA, Which I have seen in my life of Internet.

In one word: open main.cfg of a running Postfix and add following line to activate the DS option:

relayhost = [10.10.4.3]

WoW, you problem has been solved!! Remember to use the '[' and ']' as same as I wrote when your destination is an IP address. Bellow is a details about relayhost:

As per your requirment, best to use 'relayhost' option for your the problem.
Some Example are:

relayhost = [10.10.4.3]
relayhost = smtp.internal.name
relayhost = uucphost

First Line is used a lot as the outgoing email server IP normally as same as before.
If you write down the hostname (FQDN), no need to add '[' and ']' and the 3rd is for offline mailing. Now a days this 'UUCP' option is rarely used.

Note on Syntax: In the case of SMTP, specify a domain name, hostname, hostname:port, [hostname]:port, [hostaddress] or [hostaddress]:port.

Let me know if you failed to do so...

With a lot of Thanks for your time.

Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox 3 – Win an iPod


Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox 3 – Win an iPod

The Netcraft Toolbar is available for the Firefox 3 web browser. The Netcraft Toolbar offers protection against phishing by using Netcraft's phishing database to block known phishing sites and provides a convenient mechanism for reporting newly discovered phishing sites.

netcraft toolbar firefox 3
Download the Netcraft Toolbar

In addition to blocking known phishing sites, the Netcraft Toolbar also displays a Risk Rating for all new sites it encounters. The Risk Rating — a user-friendly visual summary of the information displayed by the toolbar — evaluates new sites against characteristics of the phishing sites reported to date. Sites which are deemed safe will show a low Risk Rating, while riskier sites will show higher ratings based on a number of factors. To make it easier to judge whether you wish to continue browsing a site, the toolbar also shows which country and netblock the site is hosted in, and when the site was first seen.

uk

Knowing which country a site is hosted in can help you spot risky content and highlight DNS poisoning attempts – if your US online banking site suddenly appears to be hosted in Russia, that would give good cause to be suspicious.

Some countries attract a large number of phishing incidents, often due to lax security or the increased likelihood of phishing sites staying around for longer. One particularly notable example is Cameroon, where the number of phishing attacks has exceeded the total number of sites hosted in that country. Netcraft publishes statistics on the phishiest countries in the world. You can also see how popular a site is with Netcraft's site rank.

A detailed site report shows further information about each site, including the web server's uptime:

site-report-netcraft.png

Win an iPod

Netcraft gives away iPods to the top five reporters of validated phishing sites. A leaderboard tracks the top reporters for each monthly competition.

When you visit a page that you believe to be a phishing site, reporting it to Netcraft will allow other toolbar users to benefit from your vigilance. After you report a URL, Netcraft will review the report and block the page if it is confirmed to be part of a phishing incident.

The prizes can be won by any individual who reports phishing URLs via the web form, or directly through the Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Ten Reasons - Why I Like GMail Other Then ALL Email Service


Ten Reasons - Why I Like GMail Other Then ALL

GMail, World's Leading Emailing System Developed by Google. I Like GMail for various reasons. No way to describe it here. Just giving you ten of reason, why I like GMail:

Creation of filters, searching of e-mails, selection of e-mails is much quick and fast in GMail as compared to any other email service. It loads up faster than Yahoo mail beta and Windows Live Hotmail, as it is mostly text based and hardly uses any images.

Reason one, The Skin or Interface: I think, that this is one of the best part of GMail, because the color combination (largely blue) which has been used in GMail is soothing to eyes. You don't get blind even after looking at it for long duration. As far as Web 2.0 effects are concerned, then I think that it makes use of Keyboard shortcuts, quick compose window, attachment on the fly, auto save etc etc. And these do come in the Web 2.0 effects.

Reason Two, Labels instead of Folders: Yes, I know, to be honest, there is no BIG deal with these two things.

If you apply a label but didn't archive that email, then you'll not feel the difference between the two.
A little question for you, can you put same email in two folder together in other email system? ;)

Reason Three, Who needs Drag and drop ?: People told me that Yahoo Beta is having a very nice system of Drag and Drop on their Email Interface. Well, the good use of shortcuts will ensure that you won't miss the drag and drop facility. You can get the list of shortcuts from here. If you press the # key then you'll be able to delete the email too.

Reason Four, POP and SMTP access: SMTP Access, the exclusive free access of world. Give me one Free Email Service provider, who will give you 'SMTP' access for free?! People who are on move know how value carry one 'SMTP' access on an unknown / public access. More thing is here, the POP and SMTP service of Gmail is 'secure connection'. It called 'POPs' & 'SMTPs' . Will talk about the POPs and SMTPs later.

Reason Five, Support for other accounts: You have more then one email account? Your Home ISP's Email account or Office's Email account ? Don't wary, GMail, allows you to display that you've sent an email from a completely different email address, however all the time you use GMail only. I maintain more then 10 different email accounts from one GMail account! Now, that productive!

Reason Six, Integration of Google Talk: Your GMail interface come with built-in 'Chat' software. You can now talk with your friends, family or business partner directly GMail if they are online too on that time.

Reason Seven, No obtrusive or banner ads: GMail makes use of adsense and that too they are on the extreme right hand side and really don't bother much but if you see other email services you'll see Banner ads, flash based ads which take time to load and are always distracting.

Reason Eight, Integration of Google Office Suite: When you are on move, using public computer, even it is a Linux GUI terminal, your accounts department sent you a attachment of MS Excel Spreadsheets or a Presentations from your office collages which you need to edit and give a Presentation tomorrow morning right after you flight. Google Office Suite is here to see, edit even create a completely new office document right inside your Gmail Interface!

Reason Nine, Spam less Email Inbox ! : GMail has got the best spam filter amongst all the email services and everyone will agree to me on that. It get very less false positives and hardly any spam email gets through in your Inbox.

Reason Ten, UNDO Feature: When you know, your action can be Undone, why don't you try to move, delete your email inside your GMail Interface. I like the UNDO feature a lot, just in case you get to do something stupid and delete an important email, then you can simply go and press the UNDO button and it shows you the email back in place!

When you have 2.6GB++ of Email Storage, FREE! Why you wary about deleting the email? Rush now, have a new email address from http://www.gmail.com/. I am sure, you will not unhappy.

Bangladeshi Private Firms (IGW) Start Handling International Phone Calls


Bangladeshi Private Firms (IGW) Start Handling International Phone Calls

Dhaka, Aug 21 (bdnews24.com) – Private firms on Thursday began handling international phone calls under international gateway (IGW).

MA Malek, special assistant to the chief adviser, inaugurated the IGW service of Mir Telecom at Eskaton in the city.

Earlier, state-owned Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board, now Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited, was the sole company in the field.

"We firmly believe that the government should not do business because the government hardly becomes successful in any business," Malek said.

He said the government wanted to spread technology to rural areas.

"We will soon launch WiMax in Bangladesh," he said.

He said the state-run Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited would not face any problem because of the growth of private sector.

Manzurul Alam, chairman of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission, said the government would earn Tk 1500 crore from six private operators on international calls.

He said the government opened voice-over internet protocol (VoIP) service in line with the international long-distance calls policy.

"BTRC has successfully implemented the policy. Illegal VoIP business will be wiped out with the launch of this service in private sector," the BTRC chief said.

Malek also inaugurated International Internet Gateway service of Mango Teleservice in Mohakhali.

DNS vulnerability Found on Current Version of Bind


DNS vulnerability Found on Current Version of Bind

By Joe Barr on July 08, 2008 (8:05:22 PM)

Whether you're running Linux, Windows, Cisco, Sun, or other DNS servers, you are at risk from a newly discovered vulnerability. So says Dan Kaminsky, head of penetration testing research at IO Active, who accidentally discovered the DNS "design flaw" earlier this year.

You can check whether the DNS servers you use are vulnerable by clicking the Check My DNS button in the upper right corner of Kaminsky's Web site.

Kaminsky says he made the discovery entirely by accident. When he realized the flaw was a fundamental design flaw that is universal in scope, he called for a summit of security researchers to decide on a course of action. That summit took place on the Microsoft campus on March 31, and out of it a multi-vendor patch solution was developed. Microsoft, Sun, Cisco, Bind, and other firms will be releasing patches for the flaw today. Linux distributions are expected to start providing patches today as well. Debian users already can find Bind patch instructions online.

The problem in general terms is described as insufficient randomness. Vendors have tried to deliver the fix in a way that can't be reverse-engineered to reveal the actual flaw. Full details on the flaw will not be revealed for 30 days, in order to allow system administrators time to evaluate and apply patches to their DNS servers. DNS clients are also at risk, but to a much smaller degree, and the focus at present continues to be on DNS servers.

According to Kaminsky, the rule for applying patches for this flaw should be, "If it recurses, patch it."

According to Kaminsky, the rule for applying patches for this flaw should be, "If it recurses, patch it."

DNS vulnerability Found on Current Version of Bind


DNS vulnerability Found on Current Version of Bind

By Joe Barr on July 08, 2008 (8:05:22 PM)

Whether you're running Linux, Windows, Cisco, Sun, or other DNS servers, you are at risk from a newly discovered vulnerability. So says Dan Kaminsky, head of penetration testing research at IO Active, who accidentally discovered the DNS "design flaw" earlier this year.

You can check whether the DNS servers you use are vulnerable by clicking the Check My DNS button in the upper right corner of Kaminsky's Web site.

Kaminsky says he made the discovery entirely by accident. When he realized the flaw was a fundamental design flaw that is universal in scope, he called for a summit of security researchers to decide on a course of action. That summit took place on the Microsoft campus on March 31, and out of it a multi-vendor patch solution was developed. Microsoft, Sun, Cisco, Bind, and other firms will be releasing patches for the flaw today. Linux distributions are expected to start providing patches today as well. Debian users already can find Bind patch instructions online.

The problem in general terms is described as insufficient randomness. Vendors have tried to deliver the fix in a way that can't be reverse-engineered to reveal the actual flaw. Full details on the flaw will not be revealed for 30 days, in order to allow system administrators time to evaluate and apply patches to their DNS servers. DNS clients are also at risk, but to a much smaller degree, and the focus at present continues to be on DNS servers.

BdNews24: GrameenPhone Fined Tk 250 crore: BTRC


BdNews24: GrameenPhone Fined Tk 250 crore: BTRC: "GrameenPhone Fined Tk 250 crore: Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC)


Fri, Aug 15th, 2008 1:42 am BdST


Dhaka, Aug 14 (bdnews24.com) -- BTRC has fined Grameenphone Tk 250 crore for illegal VoIP business, the second time the country's largest mobile phone operator has been penalised for such rogue activities, the telecoms regulators announced Thursday.

GP's directer of information Syed Yamin Bakht told bdnews24.com that the company had received notice of the fine and had already made a payment.

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission said the Tk 250 crore financial penalty came as GP provided E1 connectivity to third parties enabling the use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

BTRC launched a full investigation and confirmed the company's illegal VoIP connectivities after suspicions arose in January this year, the statement said.

In 2007, GP paid a fine of Tk 168.40 crore for similar offences.

BTRC said it hoped telecommunication operators would refrain from facilitating illegal VoIP ventures, directly or indirectly.

'The operators are expected to cooperate with the government to prevent such activities in the future,' the statement quoted BTRC chief Manzurul Alam as saying.

Beijing police ask about shoe size, politics, cash :: Style :: bdnews24.com ::


Beijing police ask about shoe size, politics, cash :: Style :: bdnews24.com ::: "Beijing police ask about shoe size, politics, cash"

BEIJING, Thu Aug 7, (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Living in Beijing? The government wants to know your shoe size, blood group, political affiliation and where you get your money from, according to police in at least one corner of the security-obsessed Olympic host city.

Questionnaires handed to a businessman in Beijing's east also demanded full technical details of the company computer network and a hand-drawn map of Internet connections.

Beijing has ramped up security ahead of the Games, with missile launchers guarding the main venues and a special 100,000-strong security force on the alert for terrorists.

Residents of the capital have got used to over-zealous police intruding into their lives. Visitors, even those who stay only one night, are expected to register at the local police station. Police sometimes call to ask why if they do not.

Compounds in the city centre have demanded even long-term residents carry special identity cards, while one restaurant owner said his staff had been warned by police not to speak to foreign customers about anything but their orders.

But the police forms seen by Reuters, which were aimed at Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japanese businessmen and foreign non-government workers, were unusually intrusive with detailed personal questions, some of which implied a criminal record.

Among some over 100 categories to be filled were "the last time of breaking the law", date of release from prison and source of funds. The document also asked about "cultural level" -- or educational background -- distinguishing features, and favourite hangouts.

They appeared to be internal police documents, said the businessman who asked not to be named because he feared retaliation for handing the forms to foreign journalists.

"It just seems like everyone is terrified ahead of the Olympics that something will happen on their patch so they are overreacting," the businessman asked to fill them in said.

"If I'd known the city was going to be like this I would have left for the Games," he told Reuters.

On Monday, religious extremists killed 16 police in the restive West in an attack the government said aimed to disrupt the Games, and which appeared to justify some of the concerns.

But critics say the security lockdown risks cloaking the host city in an oppressive atmosphere -- with live music and outdoor parties banned at some venues, security checks to get on the subway and tens of thousand of migrant workers and others deemed undesirable pushed out of the city.

It is your employer in Denmark who begins the application process by completing his/her part of the application form and attaching the required documents. He/she sends or gives the form and attached documents to you. You then complete your part of the form, attach the required documents, and submit the entire application.

There are different application forms for different types of applicants. Each application form contains a detailed description of how you and your employer in Denmark should complete the form, and which documents you must attach.

You and your employer in Denmark can chose one of the following application forms, depending on whether you are a(n):

Researcher
Application form ST2 (Danish and English version)


Religious worker
Application form RF1 (Danish and English version)


Applicant under the Corporate scheme
Application form AR4 for the company (Danish version)
Application form AR5 for the applicant (Danish and English version)

Furthermore, your employer in Denmark can obtain a printed version of the application form from the Service Centre of the Immigration Service, or from the local police.
If you are a self-employed person

If you are applying for a residence and work permit as a self-employed person, the application form is to be completed by you alone. The application form contains a detailed description of how you should complete the form, and which documents you must attach:

Self-employed person
> Application form AR2 (English version)
> Application form AR2 (Danish version)

Furthermore, you can obtain a printed version of the application form from the Danish diplomatic mission in your country of residence, from the Service Centre of the Immigration Service, or from the local police.
If you are a jobseeker

If your are applying for a residence and work permit under the Greencard scheme, the application form is to be completed by you alone. The application form contains a detailed description of how you should complete the form, and which documents you must attach.

> Application form GR1 (English version)
> Application form GR1 (Danish version)

Furthermore, you can obtain a printed version of the application form from the Danish diplomatic mission in your country of residence, from the Service Centre of the Immigration Service, or from the local police.
Family members

If you wish to bring your spouse/registered partner/cohabiting partner with you to Denmark, then he/she must submit his/her own application. If you have children under the age of 18 who you also wish to bring to Denmark, information about the children can be included in your spouse's/partner's application.

The application form contains a detailed description of how your spouse/partner should complete the form, and which documents he/she must attach:

Furthermore, your spouse/partner can obtain a printed version of the application form from the Danish diplomatic mission in his/her country of residence, from the Service Centre of the Immigration Service, or from the local police.
Submitting your application

You can submit an application for a residence and work permit in several ways. You can submit it at the Danish diplomatic mission in your country of origin (or the country where you have resided legally for the past three months). The mission will then forward your application to the Immigration Service in Denmark, where it will be processed.

If there is no Danish mission in your country of origin (or country of residence), it is often possible to submit your application at the mission of another Schengen country. See the Danish Foreign Ministry's list of countries where Denmark is represented by another Schengen country.

If you are residing legally in Denmark (e.g. based on another residence permit, procedural stay, visa, or visa-free stay), you can normally submit your application in Denmark.

You can submit your application at the Service Centre of the Immigration Service. If you live outside Greater Copenhagen, you can also submit your application at the local police who will then forward it to the Immigration Service. If the Immigration Service accepts your application for processing, you may stay in Denmark while your application is being processed.

As an alternative, you can book a meeting with the Immigration Service. This service is aimed at persons applying for a residence and work permit in order to work in Denmark. Read more about scheduling appointments for personal meetings regarding work permits.

If you have resided in Denmark on the grounds of another residence permit (e.g. family reunification or asylum), and this permit has been revoked or denied extension by the Immigration Service, you can submit your application in Denmark up to seven days after receiving the ruling. After this point, you must submit your application from your country of origin.

If you are residing illegally in Denmark, an application submitted in Denmark will normally be refused, and you will be asked to submit your application from your country of origin.
Processing your application

When the Immigration Service has received your application for a residence and work permit, it will process it along with the attached documentation and other information. In some cases, the Immigration Service will need to obtain additional information from branch organisations. In addition, the Immigration Service will check to see if you have been reported to the Schengen Information System (SIS).

If the Immigration Service receives information that does not correspond with the information you have provided, you will be asked to explain any discrepancies before the Immigration Service rules on the case.

Once the Immigration Service has received all necessary information and documentation relating to your application, it will make its ruling. The ruling will be either a residence and work permit, or a rejection of your application.
How do you receive the ruling?

If you submit your application from your country of origin (or other country of residence), the Immigration Service will send the ruling to the diplomatic mission where you submitted your application. The diplomatic mission will then forward it to your home address, or ask you to pick it up in person.

If you submit your application in Denmark, the Immigration Service will send the ruling to your address in Denmark, or to your attorney. The Immigration Service may also ask you to pick it up in person at the Service Centre, or it may send it to the police, who will then forward it to your home address. If the Immigration Service has decided to reject your application, it will ask you to leave Denmark before a specified date. In this case, you will be informed of your avenues to appeal the ruling.

Citizens of the new EU countries may submit their application in their country of origin, enter Denmark, and ask the Immigration Service to send the ruling to an address in Denmark, to the local police, or they may pick it up in person at the Service Centre.

These professions and fields are listed on the Positive List. The scheme also applies to persons who have applied for asylum in Denmark.

If you are a Nordic citizen, you do not need a residence permit but are free to enter, live and work in Denmark. If you are an EU/EEA citizen or Swiss citizen, you must apply for a proof of registration at the Regional State Administration. In some cases, however, citizens of the new EU countries need to apply for a work permit at the Immigration Service in order to work in Denmark.

If you already hold a Danish residence permit based on family reunification or asylum, or hold a residence permit on humanitarian grounds, you do not need a work permit in order to work in Denmark.

Your job must be listed on the Positive List. Furthermore, you must have a written job contract or job offer which specifies salary and employment conditions. Salary and employment conditions must correspond to Danish standards.

If you find a new job

If you find a new job while you are working, or while you hold a residence permit for jobseeking, you must apply for a new residence and work permit.

Extension

If your residence and work permit expires, and you have applied for an extension, and if you are still in the same job, under the same employment conditions, as when you were granted your original permit, you may stay in Denmark and continue working while the Immigration Service processes your application.

Indian Government to Finalize 3G Spectrum Auction

New Delhi: Indian government is likely to finalise the online auction process of 3G spectrum by September 30. Ahead of the 3G spectrum allocation process, the government would invite request for proposals for rolling out mobile number portability (MNP). Government had recently announced the guidelines for 3G spectrum and MNP. It has also allowed foreign players to take part in the next generation telecom space.

A 3G mobile phone service enables its customer enjoy internet facilities like downloading content, including music and video at a higher speed. "Technical and financial details are being discussed. Once that is done, this e-auction process for 3G spectrum would be finalised by September 30", says Sidhharth Behura, Telecom Secretary. He further said, "In a week's time, preliminary procedure for MNP seeking RFP from vendors will be out."

Telecom minister A Raja earlier said that government would finalise the terms of auctioning five 3G phone service licenses by October. According to DoT sources, an inter-ministerial body of Telecom Commission and the Finance and Technology Ministries members is formed to set the rules of the bidders. This body will also evaluate the firms in terms of technology before the e-auction. The bidding process is expected to raise upto Rs 40,000 crore.

One slot has been reserved for MTNL, in Mumbai and New Delhi and BSNL for the rest of India. Licenses can be extended to a dozen based on the available spectrum. Thus, the global players like AT&T, DT and NTT might enter into the Indian market through 3G.

Frequency to Get Costlier for Cell Phone Operators: BTRC Chairman


The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) is at a firm position not to provide additional frequencies to the mobile phone operators at cheaper rate like previous practices.

"You (mobile phone operators) have got the frequencies earlier at almost free of cost, this must not happen this time as the frequency is a national asset," BTRC chairman Maj Gen (retd.) Manzurul Alam told UNB after the inaugural function of Ericsson 3G HSPA pilot project at a city hotel.

He mentioned that with the almost free frequency allocation the mobile phone operators have already made a huge amount of money.

"The frequency allotment in outside Bangladesh is not less than US$ 200 million, why should we deprive the nation ... we don't have any right for that," he said.

About the price for additional frequencies he said that from his agency they have calculated the price as the 30 percent of the total profit of the additional frequencies.

"I hope that the mobile phone operators will come forward to take the additional frequencies with the BTRC- fixed price," the BTRC boss said.

The mobile operators have long been demanding more frequency from the telecommunication regulator to ease a massive network jam currently they face.

At present the mobile operators share around 80MHz on the frequency spectrum.

The BTRC chairman said that the regulator is now ready to provide 5MHz to each operator who has applied for the additional frequencies.

Sources in the BTRC said that Grameenphone, Banglalink and AKTEL applied for the additional frequencies, as their subscribers have increased a lot and as a result they are facing network jam that ultimately caused 'dropped calls'.

Over the past year, mobile operators claimed that lack of frequencies, or spectrum, was one of the main reasons for the deterioration in quality of services, with increased number of dropped calls and network busy signals.

Currently, GrameenPhone has 14.5 MHz with 20 million subscribers, Banglalink 12.4 MHz with 8.99 million subscribers, AKTEL 12.8 MHz with 7.71 million subscribers, Warid 15 MHz with 3.13 million subscriber, Citycell 10 MHz with 1.64 million subscribers and Teletalk 15.2 MHz with 0.99 million subscribers.

Google Apps Hit by Prolonged Gmail Access Problem


Google Apps Hit by Prolonged Gmail Access Problem


A technical problem hit an undetermined number of Gmail users,
including paying subscribers to the Google Apps hosted software
suite, locking them out of their accounts for about 15 hours on
Wednesday and early Thursday.

Google first acknowledged the problem in the official discussion
forums for Gmail and Google Apps shortly after 2 p.m. U.S. Eastern
Time on Wednesday and declared the problem solved at almost 5 a.m. on
Thursday.

A Google official posting status updates on the Apps forum wrote that
the problem affected "a small subset" of Apps users, without being
more specific.

More than 500,000 businesses and universities with about 10 million
active users have signed up for the free and fee-based versions of
Google Apps.

The problem, which also affected stand-alone users of Gmail, made it
impossible for users to log in to their accounts. They got a "502
Server Error" message when they tried to log in.

In the main Google Apps Discussion Group thread devoted to this
incident, administrators complained loudly about the length of the
outage and the lack of status update details offered by Google
officials.

A "502" error hit Gmail on July 16 as well, and also led to a long
outage for affected users, according to postings in the discussion
forums.

A day before this week's problem struck, Dave Girouard, president of
Google's Enterprise unit, talked up Google Apps at the Pacific Crest
Technology Leadership Forum.

Girouard said Google has big plans to aggressively expand the
features and capabilities of the suite, while keeping the price of
the Premier fee-based version at US$50 per-user annually.

Google, Salesforce.com, IBM, Amazon, Hewlett-Packard and other major
vendors are big backers of cloud computing and the software-as-a-
service (SaaS) model for delivering applications and computing
resources via the Internet.

However, outages that leave users without access to such a basic
business tool as e-mail for extended periods of time spook business
and IT managers considering Web hosted software like Google Apps and
cloud computing offers like Amazon Web Services.

When something goes wrong with the hardware or software in the
vendors' data centers and the performance and availability of the
software or computing services are affected, there is little that IT
and business managers can do but wait for the problem to be solved,
while their end users complain and demand information and solutions
that are out of the IT department's reach.

"Seriously...It has been two hours. Can you provide us with another
update? For a company with your reputation, I'm absolutely shocked at
the apparent absence of customer service," wrote a Google Apps
administrator on the discussion forum on Wednesday. "This amount of
down time is unacceptable."

Bangladesh ICT: [BANGLA-IT] When the media turns into evil


Nagative Blog Post About Transcom Media - Prothom Alo, The Daily Star, Shaptahik 2000, Anandadhara and an upcoming FM Radio Station: [BANGLA-IT] When the media turns into evil

By Sunita Paul

Media can play important role in up building a nation, while the same media, being influenced by evil forces or vested interest, could turn into devastating element for any nation. Take the example of Bangladesh's leading media group named Transcom Media, which owns a vernacular daily newspaper named Prothom Alo, an English language daily named The Daily Star, two periodicals named Shaptahik 2000 and Anandadhara. Recently the group has acquired ownership of an FM radio station named 'Aina Broadcasting Corporation' (ABC). The group is rather known as 'Daily Star Group' in Bangladesh, because of tremendous influence of its English language daily as well as its top most position amongst all competitor dailies.

Before going into notoriety of Daily Star group, let me first put focus at the back ground of the emergence of this business-media group. During early nineties, present owners of 'Star Group' turned financially bankrupt when its main figure Latifur Rahman's paternal property W Rahman Jute Mills at country's Chandpur district had to declare lay-off thus leaving thousands of workers and labors unemployed. Numerous cases were filed with the Chandpur district labor and criminal courts against Latifur Rahman and other members of the factory, as they defaulted payment of worker's wages. On the other hand, W Rahman Jute Mills was listed as one of the top defaulting enterprises with Bangladesh Bank (Central Bank) for long standing loans.

But, luck started moving in positive direction, when Latifur Rahman's wife's cousin Anup Chetia (leader of ULFA separatist group) came forward with hidden help of finance in businesses in Bangladesh through Rahman. It is learnt that a few million dollars were placed with Latifur Rahman in re-organizing his collapsed business and ULFA kept a secret stake of shares in all businesses initiated by Latifur Rahman after receipt of this secret fund.

Latifur Rahman understanding his failure in running industrial enterprise profitably launched a company named Transcom, which began businesses as the sole distributor of Nestle brand milk products in Bangladesh. Initial response although was very poor from the local market, due to solid financial back up from ULFA, Latifur Rahman managed to ultimately penetrate in the business and in few years, Transcom emerged as one of the mightiest enterprises in Bangladesh. Meanwhile, when Dhaka's well respected journalist S M Ali took the initiative of launching an English language newspaper, Latifur was suggested by ULFA to buy shares, as such investment would buy media influence for the separatist group, which fights against Indian government in separating seven North-Eastern states within India.

S M Ali was successful in placing Daily Star at the forefront of Dhaka's English press, because of his extra-ordinary qualities and courage. Just in few years, this newly launched newspaper sub sided most of the competitor dailies such as Bangladesh Observer, Bangladesh Times (now defunct), New Nation, Morning Sun (now defunct) and Financial Express. But sudden demise of S M Ali opened the opportunity for Latifur Rahman to swallow the newspaper. He brought Mahfuz Anam as the editor of the newspaper, who subsequently ousted ancestors of S M Ali and grabbed his shares. This was the beginning of notorious journey of Daily Star group.

Later, when Anup Chetia was arrested by Bangladeshi law enforcing agencies, Latifur Rahman stopped paying any share to ULFA. This was the first beginning of feud between notorious ULFA separatists and Latifur Rahman. It is widely rumored in Dhaka that, ULFA had hidden hands behind murder of Latifur's daughter Shazneed Rahman, who was brutally raped and murdered right inside her residence at Dhaka's posh Gulshan area.

But, the handsome investment from ULFA, gave Transcom an excellent opportunity to grow. Latifur decided to launch a vernacular daily newspaper with the initial capital of 10 million Taka in 1997. Prothom Alo recruited large number of top newsmen from Dhaka's press community. It also had dynamic Matiur Rahman as its editor, which helped the newspaper to rapidly turn into one of the leading dailies in the country. Later two vernacular periodicals were also launched by this group, one with celebrated journalist Shahadat Chowdhury as its editor.

In some years, Transcom group acquired ownership of Pepsi, Phillips and several large industrial enterprises. Luck always clicked in favor of this business group, as far as its investments in media was concerned. None of the newspapers, belonging to Transcom group had ever faced any financial adversity.

Due to such influential ownership of media projects, Latifur Rahman got the excellent opportunity of continuing various illegal businesses including import of goods from abroad under false declaration. Several consignments imported by Transcom were stopped by customs officials in Bangladesh and evidence of revenue evasion of millions of Taka was unearthed. But, everything was managed, by using the influence of Prothom Alo and Daily Star. Even after the political changes in Bangladesh on January 11, 2007, Daily Star group managed to send its Executive Editor Syed Fahim Munayem as the Press Secretary to the Chief Executive of the interim government. Even at later stage, when Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) issued notice on Latifur Rahman asking declaration of his wealth and assets, the entire issue was some how put into suppression with the help of Daily Star-Prothom Alo group.

Everyone knows the news about cracks in Jamuna Multi-purpose Bridge in Bangladesh. But, possibly no one knows the fact that the main reason behind such cracks was due to use of a particular brand of cement, which in the name of Portland Grey Cement is in fact fly ash mixed lowest grade cement. And, this inferior quality of cement went into various high cost projects in Bangladesh just because; chairman of the company producing and marketing this brand is none but Transcom's Latifur Rahman. No one in the government dares to utter even a single word about Holcim, which supplied such cement to various projects, as they are afraid of wrath of Daily Star and Prothom Alo. Despite the fact that, both the newspapers are largest in circulation in Bangladesh, main purpose of these publications is serving the interests of Corporate Crime.

Prime intention of Daily Star group is to stand against various business groups, whenever there is any business rivalry with that specific company or individual. This group went into heinous propaganda against Beximco Group, Bashundhara Group and many others in past. There is even clean track record of dubious behavior of this group is sabotaging various projects in Bangladesh, with the ulterior motive of either supporting businesses of Latifur Rahman, Transcom or members of this syndicate.

Many projects were already sabotaged by this group, thus causing tremendous loss to Bangladesh's economy. The latest episode of such rivalry of Daily Star group was with Bangladesh's lone hard rock mining project at country's Dinazpur district. Maddhyapara Hard Rock Mining Project (MHMP) became a pray of Daily Star for past several years. It is learnt that, some vested interest groups, including importers of stones and stone-chips from India, Myanmar and Malaysia are patronizing such media terror by Star, thus attempting to sabotage country's most prospective project, which not only is already saving millions of dollars, but, also is set to turn into a huge prospect of earning millions of dollars from export of world-class Granite Tiles.

First rivalry with the MHMP began when Bangladesh government appointed Polish consulting firm Kopex SA, defying the fact that this firm had no experience of hard rock mining. It is learnt that, appointment of this Polish firm was a result of heavy persuasion from some high level corrupt bureaucrats in the Energy Ministry and Petrobangla. From the very appointment, the Polish consultant had been frantically trying to sabotage the project for reason unknown.

In June 2006, Kopex SA submitted a paper with the Energy and Mineral Resources Division saying, "Maddhyapara Hard Rock Mining project has become 'virtually sick' and the employer (the government) has suffered huge financial loss."

It said Petrobangla and the project authorities, Madhyapara Granite Mining Company Limited, should ask Nam-Nam for final commissioning and test production immediately to ascertain the actual status of mine development.

"The Petrobangla and MGMCL should take over the mine after ascertaining its actual state and on documentation to establish the legal ownership of the mine," it said.

Kopex said, "The Nam-Nam has complemented major installation of the mine in over 12 years but they have not yet done the final commissioning and test run although the original development period of the mine was 6.5 years since the signing of the agreement between Petrobangla and the company in 1994."

Sources in Petrobangla, however, ditched the Kopex report, saying that the consultant should also be held responsible for the delay as it failed to come up with proper plan.

"Kopex also wants to be involved more with the mine for which it came up with such a report," Petrobangla source added.

Meanwhile, on October 15, 2005, The Daily Star published a front page news item titled 'North Korean company looks for legal coverage to finish task'. In this report, Daily Star said, "When completed, the Maddyapara hard rock mine will commercially sell 1.65 million tonnes of granite a year. The country annually imports 3.4 million tonnes of granite. Local production will save between $38 million to $58 million US dollars. The project has a life span of 45 years. However, the price of Maddhyapara granite will not be cheaper than the rocks that are commonly imported from India because of the increased project cost"

It was clearly understood that the report was published with the very intention of killing the project to protect the interest of importers-exporters syndicate, which enjoys business of millions of dollars every year by continuing to import stone from India and other countries. In this report, Daily Star claimed that the cost of production of MHMP hark rock was higher than imported one, which is nothing but a clean deviation from truth. It is learnt from dependable sources that, production cost for each tons of hard rock from Maddhyapara project stands at US$ 10 while the minimum import cost is US$ 22.

On May 18, 2006, Daily Star once again published a front page report titled "Petrobangla to take it over from DPRK firm", where it repeated the same lie on the price of the locally extorted hard rock. It said, "Maddhyapara granite will however not be cheaper than the rocks that are commonly imported from India because of the increased project cost."

Nam-Nam Corporation successfully completed and handed over the project in May last year and meanwhile; commercial production in the project is already going on. Due to timely steps taken by the present government in Dhaka, locally produced stones are purchased and used in various domestic projects on priority basis, while the cost of local stones are more than half the cost of imported ones. Being totally frustrated at the completion of the project, vested interest groups once again managed to published another front page report in The daily Star on May 16, 2008 titled "Miner now wants return of non-existent loans".

In this report, Daily Star wrote, "Nam-nam is now operating the mine with 65 South Koreans under a one-year service contract due to expire on May 27. As it did not fully transfer the South Korean technology to the MGMCL, it will get yet another year's service contract, the sources said."

This part of the news shows two things. One, the reporter knows nothing of the project but was writing thing being dictated by vested interest groups. In the same news, while the reporter said Nam-Nam is a North Korean company, how he could discover 65 South Koreans in the project (does he lack the minimum knowledge that North and South Korea do not have any diplomatic relations as yet?). The reporter also said that, Nam-Nam is not fully transferring South Korean technology to MGMCL. Ridiculous, who edits and passes such rubbish news in Daily Star? Being Dhaka's leading dailies, it should be ashamed of such poor journalistic quality. The entire report as well as all previous reports is part of propaganda and conspiracy to kill the entire project, which stands as the most prospective one for Bangladesh. Anyone can easily understand that, vested interest groups, including enemies of North Korea are patronizing such dangerous campaign not only to sabotage the project, but, also to give a good lesson to the North Korean company for being dedicated and helpful to Bangladesh is saving millions of dollars from import of hard rock.

Bangladesh government not only needs to patronize this extremely profitable and viable project, but even needs to go into fresh negotiations with Nam-Nam or the North Korean government in signing fresh agreements for exploration of more mining projects in the country. According to mining experts several more hard rock mines are already existing in the Northern region of Bangladesh, which will be able to help the country in stopping import of stones from abroad, thus saving billions of dollars each year. At the same time, government needs to identify vested interest groups within Energy Ministry and Petrobangla in order to not only protect the national interest but also to punish the culprits for their notorious roles.

Further harassment of the North Korean company will earn bad reputation for Bangladesh from the potential foreign investors. Nam-Nam deserves to be appreciated for completion of the MHMP despite series of harassments and non-cooperation from the Energy Ministry and Petrobangla.
