In particular, the unencrypted DVDs were sent to SCAS by recorded delivery’.The contravention was ‘serious’ because the DVDs contained highly sensitive personal data. The cases were ongoing and of a violent or sexual nature. The named victims could be seen talking openly in the videos.The commissioner did not think GMP deliberately contravened the Data Protection Act. However, she was satisfied that GMP knew or ought reasonably to have known there was a contravention risk.The notice states that GMP was aware SCAS required confidential material to be sent special delivery. ‘Special delivery is more secure than recorded delivery because an item is signed for every time it changes hands, and not just by the recipient. Royal Mail also treats an item as lost after five days instead of ten, and GMP could have liaised with its security team much sooner,’ the commissioner said.Highlighting mitigating features, the commissioner said GMP referred the incident to the commissioner and SCAS. The information on the DVDs have not been further disseminated, as far as the commissioner is aware. GMP notified the affected individuals and provided support. GMP has taken remedial action until a technical solution is found. The commissioner took into account the ‘aggravating’ feature that the DVDs were not password protected.In a statement, assistant chief constable Rob Potts of Greater Manchester Police said: ‘The discs were sent in accordance with national guidance for sending sensitive information. However, when it became apparent that the discs may have been lost we immediately reviewed our own procedures and as a result postal delivery is no longer used by GMP for sensitive information.”I think it is important to stress that when the potential loss did become apparent, we worked closely alongside Royal Mail to do everything possible to try to find the discs and immediately informed all those concerned with the video interviews.’They have been kept updated of this ongoing investigation and contacted this week to inform them of the ICO’s decision. We understand that seeing the news of this sanction reaching the public eye may bring back vivid memories of what happened to them and so we are providing them with support from specially trained officers.’Potts added that national guidance on sending sensitive information has been amended to prevent similar occurrences happening again. Greater Manchester Police has been fined £150,000 after three unencrypted DVDs containing footage of interviews with victims of violent or sexual crimes were lost in the post.The Information Commissioner’s Office said today that the force sent the DVDs in 2015 to the National Crime Agency’s Serious Crime Analysis Section (SCAS) by recorded delivery but they were never received.The section identifies potential serial killers and serial rapists at an early stage in their offending history. Police forces are required to provide SCAS with cases that are considered suitable for such an assessment.The ICO’s monetary penalty notice states that the DVDs contained a video of a police interview with victims in ongoing cases. The DVDs have not been recovered.The commissioner’s investigation found that GMP had been sending unencrypted DVDs by recorded delivery to SCAS since 2009 and stopped after the security breach in 2015.In a statement posted on the ICO’s website, enforcement group manager Sally Anne Poole said: ‘When people talk to the police they have every right to expect that their information is handled with the utmost care and respect.”Greater Manchester Police did not do this. The information it was responsible for was highly sensitive and the distress that would be caused if it was lost should have been obvious. Yet GMP was cavalier in its attitude to this data.’

With the new Red Stripe Premier League season on the horizon, Arnett Gardens’ head coach Jerome Waite is urging the club’s supporters to exercise patience, noting that the club is determined to build a team that will feature prominently in the league for years to come. Waite stated that the club is constructing a youthful team, but pointed out that present and future success remain a priority for the Junglists. Arnett Gardens, who made it to the quarter-finals of the RSPL last season, where they were knocked out by Cavalier, have released two senior players in the off-season in Ranike Anderson and Jabuer Johnson. Waite told The Gleaner that the club brought in a number of talented young players in the preseason, as they aim to build a competitive squad for the future. “One of the things that we targeted in the preseason is players between the ages of 18-23, because we are talking about long-term development, and at the same time, ensuring that we reached the top six,” said Waite. Opportunity to showcase talent “We are looking forward to marketing these young players and, hopefully, they can be given an opportunity to showcase their talent at the next level overseas,” he said. The veteran coach underlines that the club’s supporters are always eager to win, but he said, the game have changed a lot over the past decade and, therefore, one must give the youngsters a chance to showcase their talents. “Everybody always looking for Arnett Gardens to win the Premier League every year. It is not a situation where it is not possible, but we will have to take into consideration where development of these young players is concerned,” added Waite. “They will be working with a few senior, experienced players so that they can improve from time to time,” he said. “It will be a work in progress because it is left to be seen as to how fast these youngsters grasp what is expected of them. As you know, the culture in Arnett Gardens is different from the other clubs, because our spectators are hungry at all times, not only to win games, but to win trophies,” he said. Waite noted that his coaching staff has been working intensely to improve the fitness of their players ahead of the start of the season, which kicks off in September. “We are still continuing the conditioning of our team because we don’t start anything technically or tactically as yet and so things are looking good so far for us,” Waite stated.
Alabama running back Derrick Henry (2) fights for yardage against Florida in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, Ga. on Saturday December 5, 2015. (Mickey Welsh / Montgomery Advertiser)ATLANTA — Everybody at Alabama seems to have a favorite Derrick Henry story, but the best one might come from Crimson Tide teammate O.J. Howard.Both arrived on campus in January 2013 as part of a prized group of incoming freshmen. Alabama staff assigned Howard and Henry to room together, and on the first night, Howard glanced into Henry’s bedroom and saw him on the floor doing push ups.Up and down, up and down. Over and over and over and over.Howard hadn’t spent a full night on campus yet, and already he could see that Derrick Henry wasn’t just another star football player.A week after running the ball over and over and over and over in a win over Auburn, Henry did the same in Saturday’s SEC Championship Game win over Florida 29-15. He rushed 44 times for 189 yards and won the game’s most valuable player award.I’ve heard that greatness isn’t doing something great once. Instead, it’s doing something well over and over and over and over. If that’s so, how can we call Alabama’s Derrick Henry anything but great?The Heisman Trophy?Heck, that’s a foregone conclusion.About the only way he wouldn’t have won it is if Alabama had lost Saturday, while he fumbled a half-dozen times, then on his way off the field he dropped his pants and mooned Terry Saban. Even then, some voters might’ve thought long and hard before moving him down on their ballots.Last week, Henry broke Bo Jackson’s Iron Bowl rushing record. Saturday, he broke Herschel Walker’s 34-year-old SEC record for rushing yards in a season. Henry has 1,986 yards, while Herschel had 1,891 as a Georgia sophomore in 1981. Henry has 339 carries, while Herschel needed 385 to reach his total.Henry also scored a touchdown to tie Tim Tebow’s SEC record of 23 rushing touchdowns. Aren’t those three of the four faces on the Mount Rushmore of SEC football players – Bo, Herschel and Tebow?Alabama’s Shaun Alexander scored 27 touchdowns in 1999 on rushing, receiving and kick returns, including his bowl game, and nobody in SEC history can beat that. Alexander went on to become an NFL MVP with Seattle. I used to think Alabama never would have a running back better than Alexander.Now, I’m not so sure.When Henry was a high school senior in Florida, he broke the national career rushing record, and a local radio station put him in touch with Ken Hall, who set the old mark in the 1950s in Texas. Oddly enough, Hall played collegiately at Texas A&M for Bear Bryant, who made his mark at Alabama.http://app.contenttools.co/polls/2349/embed.js?show_name=no&show_description=no&show_sharing_options=yes&show_cover_image=noOld stories say Hall set his record by speeding past everyone. Henry can do that, but he’s at his best when he is beating defenses into submission. On one run Saturday, as Henry broke past the line, Florida defensive back Keanu Neal stepped out of Henry’s way and tried to grab him around the waist to slow him down. Didn’t work. Another defensive back, Quincy Wilson, dove for Henry’s ankle, and that worked. Kind of. Henry wound rolling over him as if he was paving road, with Wilson laying flat as if he was trying to avoid getting cut to pieces by a train.When you see him run like that, it’s hard to believe that Alabama gave him the ball only 13 times in last year’s Sugar Bowl loss to Ohio State. What do you think would’ve happened had that been 23 carries? Or 30?Henry’s value isn’t just in the yardage he gains, but how he allows his team to control the game. The other team’s offense is stuck on the sideline when Henry is running the ball over and over and over and over. Alabama held the ball 43 minutes, 29 seconds Saturday, forcing an already-overmatched Florida defense to sit on the sideline for long stretches.Henry wasn’t always a lock to become a star running back at Alabama. In those initial spring practices in 2013, running backs had to go through a drill in which they had to crouch and run the ball under this contraption that looked kind of like a long table, the 6-foot-3, 242-pound Henry looked big and clumsy as his back bumped and moved the thing out of place.Some said he was too big and should be moved to linebacker.I guess it’s a good thing other teams don’t put some of those long table things on the field. They might be Henry’s Kryptonite.
news Chelsea FA Cup Share on Messenger Topics The Observer Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Southampton Read more Antonio Conte believes Chelsea passed up “a great chance” to win the FA Cup last season and will find success this year far harder to come by as they prepare for Sunday’s semi‑final against Southampton.The Italian, who has yet to claim a knockout trophy as a manager, had seen his team secure the Premier League title by seven points last term, finishing 18 clear of Arsenal, their opponents in the cup final. Yet Chelsea failed to maintain the high standards they had set – they won 19 of their last 23 fixtures in all competitions before the showpiece – and his 10 men succumbed to a late Aaron Ramsey goal to lose 2-1. Share via Email Share on WhatsApp It is harder to manage Chelsea than Burnley, claims Antonio Conte Antonio Conte Share on Pinterest Share on LinkedIn Conte was speaking before knowing that Manchester United, rather than Spurs, would await in the final if Southampton, struggling badly in the top flight, were overcome. “I must be honest: last season, we missed a great chance to win the FA Cup,” said Conte. “This season, if we can win against Southampton and reach the final, it would be more difficult against Tottenham or United. Last season we were in the best condition to try to go and win the FA Cup, and we missed that chance. It was our fault.“I remember that some refereeing decisions were not good. The first goal scored by [Alexis] Sánchez was handball, and we finished the game with 10 men [after Victor Moses’ dismissal for two bookings]. But, despite this, we were able to equalise only to concede a goal at the last with our mistake. Arsenal did a great job to win the FA Cup but we could have done better. At that moment we were stronger than them. This season, it would be more difficult to win it.”Conte, who is expected to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, will not be appeased for a difficult campaign by a second successive appearance in the FA Cup final. “You have to know that I play only to win,” he said. “I don’t play to enjoy. I play only to win. Every season I start the season with only one idea in my mind, in my heart, in my soul: to win.“If I win something, I did my job, not something special. If we don’t win, I’m very angry, above all with myself. But I’m ready to work harder to try and win something the next chance I have.”Southampton were overcome in a league meeting between the sides last Saturday despite Chelsea trailing 2-0 at St Mary’s with 20 minutes remaining. Olivier Giroud, who should start at Wembley, transformed that occasion following his introduction from the bench, and Conte hopes his players have learned lessons from the contest on the south coast.“If we are the team that played the first half and a part of the second half, we must be concerned, really concerned,” added Chelsea’s head coach. “But if we go to play with the right team spirit, we have a possibility of reaching the final. My players have to go on to the pitch with the right fire in their eyes, with the right desire to reach the final, and with our crowd with us. We must give them the best satisfaction.” Reuse this content
