AWS is fond of saying security is job zero. That means it's nobody in particular's job, which means it falls to the rest of us. Just the news you need to know, none of the fluff.Corey: This episode is sponsored in part by my friends at Thinkst Canary. Most companies find out way too late that they've been breached. Thinkst Canary changes this and I love how they do it. Deploy canaries and canary tokens in minutes, and then forget about them. What's great is then attackers tip their hand by touching them, giving you one alert, when it matters. I use it myself and I only remember this when I get the weekly update with a, “We're still here, so you're aware,” from them. It's glorious. There is zero admin overhead to this, there are effectively no false positives unless I do something foolish. Canaries are deployed and loved on all seven continents. You can check out what people are saying atcanary.love. And, their Kube config canary token is new and completely free as well. You can do an awful lot without paying them a dime, which is one of the things I love about them. It is useful stuff and not a, “Oh, I wish I had money.” It is spectacular. Take a look. That'scanary.love because it's genuinely rare to find a security product that people talk about in terms of love. It really is a neat thing to see.Canary.love. Thank you to Thinkst Canary for their support of my ridiculous, ridiculous nonsense.Corey: So, yesterday's episode put the boots to AWS, not so much for the issues that Orca Security uncovered, but rather for its poor communication around the topic. Now that that's done, let's look at the more mundane news from last week's cloud world. Every day is a new page around here, full of opportunity and possibility in equal measure.This week's S3 Bucket Negligence Award goes to the Nigerian government for exposing millions of their citizens to a third party who most assuredly did not follow coordinated disclosure guidelines. Whoops.There's an interesting tweet, and exploring it is still unfolding at time of this writing, but it looks that making an API Gateway ‘Private' doesn't mean, “To your VPCs,” but rather, “To anyone in a VPC, any VPC, anywhere.” This is evocative of the way that, “Any Authenticated AWS User,” for S3 buckets caused massive permissions issues industry-wide.And a periodic and growing concern is one of software supply chain—which is a fancy way of saying, “We're all built on giant dependency chains”—what happens when, say, a disgruntled developer corrupts their own NPM libs ‘colors' and ‘faker', breaking thousands of apps across the industry, including some of the AWS SDKs? How do we manage that risk? How do we keep developers gruntled?Corey: Are you building cloud applications with a distributed team? Check out Teleport, an open-source identity-aware access proxy for cloud resources. Teleport provides secure access for anything running somewhere behind NAT: SSH servers, Kubernetes clusters, internal web apps, and databases. Teleport gives engineers superpowers.Get access to everything via single sign-on with multi-factor, list and see all of SSH servers, Kubernetes clusters, or databases available to you in one place, and get instant access to them using tools you already have. Teleport ensures best security practices like role-based access, preventing data exfiltration, providing visibility, and ensuring compliance. And best of all, Teleport is open-source and a pleasure to use. Download Teleport at goteleport.com. That's goteleport.com.AWS had a couple of interesting things. The first is “Top ten security best practices for securing backups in AWS”. People really don't consider the security implications of their backups anywhere near seriously enough. It's not ‘live' but it's still got—by definition—a full set of your data just waiting to be harvested by nefarious types. Be careful with that.And of course, AWS had two security bulletins, one about its Glue issues, one about its CloudFormation issues. The former allowed cross-account access to other tenants. In theory. In practice, AWS did the responsible thing and kept every access event logged, going back for the full five years of the service's life. That's remarkably impressive.And lastly, I found an interesting tool called S3-credentials last week, and what it does is it helps generate tightly-scoped IAM policies that were previously limited to a single S3 bucket, but now are limited to a single prefix within that bucket. You can also make those credential sets incredibly short-lived. More things like this, please. I just tend to over-scope things way too much. And that's what happened Last Week in AWS: Security. Please feel free to reach out and tell me exactly what my problem is.Corey: Thank you for listening to the AWS Morning Brief: Security Edition with the latest in AWS security that actually matters.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by inspirational author and activist EMMA DABIRI!Recorded at a time of political weirdness (a backdrop as old as time), illicit government parties feel pretty low down the list compared with the content of what Emma gets into with this episode. Just listen to her break down the origins of slavery in the early part, where she traces race as a construct to the roots, and charts its spread from there on. Emma's expert delivery does not end there, for that is merely the tip of the iceberg of what is a very useful, inspiring and absolutely information-packed episode, where she also goes into her book and the inspirations behind the title, her upbringing in Ireland and Atlanta with Nigerian and Irish parents, being subliminally introduced into black politics from a very early age, and again, tracing certain elements of slavery and racism to the origins in order to better understand the impact and resonance. I mean, just listen, and read the book.

After 222 days the social media platform is back up and running in Nigeria. The country suspended Twitter after it deleted a tweet by President Buhari and Nigerians have been accessing the platform via VPN, but now Twitter has agreed to the government's demands which include opening a local office, paying taxes, and being respectful of Nigerian laws. Abubakar Idris, the reporter for tech site Rest of World, joins us on the show. We are waiting on a response from Twitter. 100 years of the BBC The BBC Historian Robert Seatter joins us live to talk about some of the tech innovations that the BBC developed over the last 100 years. He's behind these amazing websites - Objects of the BBC - BBC 100 www.bbc.co.uk/100 and even more will be revealed throughout the year. He will be discussing the first OB in 1924 (The Cello and the Nightingale), the development of the first ribbon microphone by BBC engineers (as the BBC could not afford those designed in Hollywood), the fully digitised audio archive, and many other marvels of tech innovation. Ban on online education classes in China A few months ago, we reported on the Chinese government's ban on online video gaming in children, where it restricted it to three hours a week. That was followed by a new set of regulations on private tutoring that has hit some of the biggest tech companies in China. While the new rules will certainly give young people more leisure, there's a lot more to it than children's well-being. On the show today we have science and technology journalist Yuan Ren to explain one of the biggest shakeups in Chinese education.

How a small Nigerian Islamist group launched one of the deadliest insurgencies in Africa. In 2002, a new radical sect emerged in Maiduguri in north eastern Nigeria led by a charismatic preacher, Mohammed Yusuf. He preached against anything he deemed un-Islamic or having a western influence. Locals gave the group a nickname, Boko Haram - meaning "western education is forbidden". In 2009, the group launched co-ordinated attacks on police across northern Nigeria. Maiduguri saw the fiercest fighting. It was the start of an insurgency that would devastate the region. We hear from Bilkisu Babangida who was the BBC Hausa service reporter in the city at the time.

Adenike and Brandi have a strong connection with their ancestor's presence in their lives. So when they decided to expand their family, they weren't surprised when they showed up, guided, and protected them during the birth of their daughter.Their pregnancy journey involved five tries with Intrauterine Insemination (IUI). After two unsuccessful attempts at home, they decided to get support at a specialized clinic. They had a Nigerian nurse practitioner during the first two tries at the clinic (Adenike is of Nigerian and Haitian descent). Still, it would be the fifth try to become pregnant ultimately.For Adenike, the pregnancy itself would be pretty "straightforward" the most challenging part was managing her Sickle Cell Anemia. Individuals with this diagnosis can have low birth weight babies due to the birthing person cells being shaped differently and how their body carries oxygen. For Adenike, this meant the need to get red blood cell exchanges completed once a month. Due to Covid, she was attending these appointments alone, spending four to five hours getting blood pumped in and out of her body. While a tasking endeavor, Adenike expressed that care providers like to tell you what you can do with your body in terms of Sickle Cell care. That was not the route that she and Brandi wanted for her pregnancy and birth. They leaned into the research they had done and the support of their doula to ensure every step of the way, Adenike was able to support her body in the way she understood her needs.Adenike's pregnancy was considered high risk due to her Sickle Cell diagnosis paired with other health concerns. Taking that into account, her maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) doctor (also Nigerian) discussed with Adenike and Brandi that it might be safest to have an induction at 38 weeks. As the time came around, they could push this time frame back as her body and baby were managing well. After their appointment and returning home, Adneike and Brandi settled into their nightly routine, with Brandi taking their dogs on a walk. As she stepped out, she noticed a drizzle of rain, along with a woman she hadn't seen before sitting about 20 ft away. Brandi shares in a greeting with her, and the lady exclaims, "You know it's raining outside!" throwing Brandi off a bit as it wasn't raining that hard. Continuing on her walk, she was baffled when she saw the lady get up and begin walking away into the distance with no known end. Returning home, she shared this interaction with Brandi, but they both shrugged it off as they went to bed, but soon after, Adenike felt a sudden sharp pain and gush from her waters breaking.Labor would take its time, the rain increasing into a torrential downpour as they made their way to the hospital. As they moved through their birth, some shifts were required from their birth plan, along with hard discussions and push back from their care team. Through it all, Adenike stayed in tune with her needs, and when she was ready to push, she followed her intuition, bringing her daughter hearthside as the rain came pouring down a reminder they were covered and held.Resources:Hale's Medications & Mother's Milk | a manual of lactational pharmacologySickle Cell Anemia Disease | sickle cell anemia Facebook support group led by AdenikeSerene Journey Births | doula education and support in the Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland areas

Ray Okpara on the Virtual Sessions presented by The DJ Sessions 1/12/22   About Ray Okpara -    An artist whose roots lie half in Nigeria represents today what we understand as House.  Percussions, drifty hypnotic beats, a touch of soul and marvelously deep. House is a feeling and Ray Okpara has his finger firmly on the pulse… The first thing that strikes you about Ray Okpara is that he's an overwhelmingly nice guy with what seems like time for everybody but behind the big smile and wiley dreads is one of house music's most serious producer/djs. Despite coming to prominence during the media's 2008 obsession with Frankfurt/Mannheim via releases on Cecille, Oslo, Get Physical and Area Remote, Okpara has been instrumental in Germany's flourishing house scene for well over a decade. Initially taking to the decks to play his close friend Johnny D's UK Garage records in the mid-90's, Okpara quickly found his groove and by the time the pair started their RAJO club night a fervent dedication to all things house engulfed the young Nigerian. In 2001 Nick Curly joined the team and the night began it's residency at The Loft in Mannheim – becoming the seed of what has since become one of the strongest house music family trees in Europe. As with most Djs, the production itch had to be scratched but, unlike most, Okpara's initial efforts betrayed an innate talent for the craft. Lomidhigh Ltd, Drumpoet Community and Arearemote are an enviable bunch to count as early adopters for any budding producer and this start just strengthened Ray's resolve. Rejoining his tight knit group of friends, now running the Oslo, Deep Vibes, Cecille and 8-Bit imprints, after a four year relocation to Berlin in 2005, Ray's reputation was cemented and the rest is history.   Now based back in Berlin with a heavy touring schedule as a DJ and a dedicated live artist, Okpara continues to go from strength to strength. His Ama label rolls out consistently quality output in an unhurried manner while his own productions continue to hit home for crowds, critics and record buyers alike. As well as ongoing relationships forged in his Mannheim days, affiliations with Oslo and Mobilee are being nurtured and with many more projects still to be unveiled 2012 and beyond is looking pretty rosy for the cheery guy. KEEP SMILING WITH HOUSE MUSIC... Ama Recordings is Ray Okpara's label out of Mannheim, Germany. Amaefule, Ray's middle name in fact, literally means “your name will never get lost” and it symbolizes the strength of identity we create through music. Ama is also derived from the Latin meaning of love and the philosophy of the label is born out of the affection held for conceiving and sharing quality electronic music. There are no rules about what Ama Recordings will sound like, but it comes from the heart, so expect true house values to be maintained at all times with a natural tipp towards the deep and dubby. http://dj.beatport.com/rayokpara  http://www.livet.de/artists/ray_okpara/ http://www.mobilee-records.de/artists/ray-okpara  http://soundcloud.com/rayokpara About The DJ Sessions -   With over 2,200 episodes produced over the last eleven years “The DJ Sessions”, a Twitch and Mixcloud “Featured Partner”, has featured international artists such as: BT, Robert Babicz, Camo & Krooked, Simon Patterson, Lindsey Stirling, Mako, Morgan Page, Jes, Cut Chemist, Yves Larock, Bjorn Akesson, Alchimyst, Judge Jules, DubFX, DJs From Mars, Ray Okpara, Rudosa, Thievery Corporation, Sander Van Dorn, GAWP, Coke Beats, Hollaphonic, Kissy Sell Out, Somna, David Morales, Roxanne, JB & Scooba, Massimo Vivona, Moullinex, Futuristic Polar Bears, Many Few, Joe Stone, Reboot, Truncate, Scotty Boy, Jody Wisternoff, Benny Bennasi, Dance Loud, Christopher Lawrence, Oliver Twizt, Ricardo Torres, Alex Harrington, 4 Strings, Sunshine Jones, Elite Force, Revolvr, Kenneth Thomas, Paul Oakenfold, George Acosta, Reid Speed, TyDi, Donald Glaude, Jimbo, Ricardo Torres, Hotel Garuda, Bryn Liedl, Rodg, Kems, Mr. Sam, Steve Aoki, Funtcase, Dirtyloud, Marco Bailey, Thousand Fingers, Dirtmonkey, Crystal Method, Beltek, Dyro, Andy Caldwell, Darin Epsilon, Kyau & Albert, Kutski, Vaski, Moguai, Blackliquid, Sunny Lax, Matt Darey, and many more.   In addition to featuring national/international artists “The DJ Sessions” featured hundreds local top DJs from their homebase of Seattle.   We have also undergone a massive upgrade in our TDJS studios and to our TDJS Mobile Studio to full HD streaming and HD audio to make the quality of the shows even better than before.

My guest today, Yrsa Daley-Ward, is an author, actor, model, and screenwriter of mixed Jamaican and Nigerian heritage. Growing up in the northwest of England, she found herself quickly exited from her home, being raised by her grandparents at the age of 6, and struggling in many ways to understand what had just happened. Reading and writing became her salvation. A more introverted kid, raised in a strict religious family, in a tradition that no one outside the family shared, being vegetarian, and the only Black person in her school who also happened to stand nearly a foot above her peers by her early teens, she yearned to just fit in. To not stand out. She didn't want to be different. Yet, something in the order of magic happened when her teacher noticed Yrsa's gift for language and asked her to begin sharing her poems before the class as spoken words. She came alive. It was like she stepped outside herself and all was as it should be. And that very feeling, though stifled for a time, would come roaring back to life years later when, living in Cape Town, South Africa, she stumbled into a weekly poetry group. Following a weekly prompt, Yrsa wrote a poem entitled Mental Health, then performed it from the stage. The response took her breath away. In that moment, she knew this would be her life.

New Year Greetings Glocal Citizens! As we usher in 2022 aka double deuces, this week's episode is all about mindset. We're going back into the Global Citizens archive for a compilation of mindset hacks from early guests of the podcast. In case you'e new to the podcast and not unlike some of my guests you might be wondering what is a mindset hack? Well, a description that I quite like is that mindset hacking is exploring the limits of what is possible, seeking excellence, or even balance which entails doing something exciting and meaningful, deliberately finding opportunities to be clever, problem solve and enjoy what you are doing. So with that in mind, this week you'll hear from: Cordie Aziz-Nash (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/3), she is the CEO and founder of Environment360 and has roots in Sierra Leone, Ghana and the US; Nigerian-American filmmaker and founder of Refined Creative based in Accra, Ghana, Emmanuel Etim (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/4); Ghanaian, musician and social entrepreneur, Leslie Bentil (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/6), he's the founder of Gutta Soles and the Gutta Soles Foundation; Nigerian pianist, music director, composer, and leader of Afrobeat band Ayetoro, Funsho Ogundipe (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/21); Ghanaian Amma Gyampo (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/7), Co-Founder of B2B Entrepreneurship Development firm, ScaleUp Africa; Also from Ghana, serial techpreneur and creative, Kwame Acheampong (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/23); Yogi and wellness-peneur, Nana Amoako-Anin (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/9), founder of Bliss Yoga Accra; and Valerie Labi (https://glocalcitizens.fireside.fm/10), a social innovator, business leader and mother who just last week welcomed her third bundle of joy. Congratulations to Val and her family! So, as we ease our way out of holiday mode and into the flow of work I hope you enjoy these sound bites of inspiration to help nourish the start of your new year!

We are taking a short break over the holidays and are rebroadcasting some memorable discussions. This episode was originally published February 19, 2021. In 2008, Canadian journalist Mellissa Fung was abducted while on assignment in Afghanistan. She survived 28 days of torture and captivity inside a hole in the ground. In her new documentary “Captive,” she makes the rare and difficult move to use the lens of her trauma to revisit the story of the Nigerian school girls who were kidnapped and brutalized by Boko Haram militants. Fung speaks to “This Matters” host Saba Eitizaz about the survivors, their struggle to move on and the strange complexity of shared trauma. Correction – The audio has been updated to reflect that Mellissa Fung was kidnapped in Afghanistan in 2008, not five years ago as stated in the original version of this podcast.

However, it is rare to come across someone who wishes to become a priest. Well, I had the opportunity to meet someone who had been fascinated with the idea of becoming a priest since the age of six. Father James Anyaegbu is a Catholic Diocese of Aba and a Nigerian priest currently serving in pastoral ministry in Scotland, United Kingdom. He entered the seminary at the age of 11 to be trained as a priest.With his passion for young people, he founded an online platform to share his faith and charity work. And, even though he was born when there was no internet, he figured out social media and has used it as a tool to reach many by teaching them about the Catholic faith and reassuring them about the love and faith in Christ since the pandemic. It was a pleasure to sit with this TikTok-savvy priest as he reflected on his childhood and how far he has progressed in his priesthood journey. Fr. James is incredibly passionate about his work as a priest and bridging ecumenism. He also shared some insightful advice for those traveling home for the holidays and some sound advice for parents
