After Harvey Houston ISD Other Districts Could Get Break on Recapture Bills

first_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /01:10 APStephanie Garcia, left, waits with her family at a high school gym to be evacuated as the outer bands of Hurricane Harvey begin to make landfall, Friday, Aug. 25, 2017, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Harvey intensified into a hurricane Thursday and steered for the Texas coast with the potential for up to 3 feet of rain, 125 mph winds and 12-foot storm surges in what could be the fiercest hurricane to hit the United States in almost a dozen years.(AP Photo/Eric Gay)Before Harvey flooded much of the city, the Houston Independent School District owed almost $80 million in so-called Robin Hood money. It’s considered property wealthy and has to share money with property-poor school districts.It worried Superintendent Richard Carranza in the wake of the storm, when he roughly estimated the damage and manpower hours could cost HISD hundreds of millions of dollars.“This is important for us, that we look at the totality of what’s going to be flowing out, in terms of resources, for HISD and that we have that very structured conversation about how do we make the district whole, or at least somewhat whole,” Carranza said. Turns out wealthy districts like Houston can get a break on their bill after a natural disaster.Attorney David Thompson, who counsels school districts, said that they can apply some of the money owed to the state to disaster-related expenses that insurance or the Federal Emergency Management Agency won’t cover.“Frankly, it makes a lot of sense,” he said. “After a disaster, local property tax dollars that citizens are paying certainly should be used first to help recovery in their own community before simply being sent to Austin to be put in general revenue.”Thompson estimated Houston’s bill could be reduced by several million dollars. He added that the Texas Education Commissioner could also set up grant programs for districts that suffered damage from Harvey, but aren’t considered property wealthy.

Twitter Reveals Password Bug Recommends Users Change Passwords

first_img Popular on Variety Twitter disclosed that it discovered a bug in its system for storing passwords — which left them exposed in an internal log — and its top technology exec said that “out of an abundance of caution” users should consider changing their passwords.Twitter shares dropped as much as 2.7% in after-hours trading Thursday after the social-media company disclosed the bug.In a blog post, Twitter CTO Parag Agrawal said the company had fixed the glitch and that its internal investigation “shows no indication of breach or misuse by anyone.”“We are very sorry this happened,” Agrawal wrote. “We recognize and appreciate the trust you place in us, and are committed to earning that trust every day.”Twitter didn’t say how many users’ passwords were being stored in clear text. For the first quarter of 2018, it reported an average monthly active user base of 336 million accounts worldwide. Twitter users are able to change their password on the password settings page, available at this link. Agrawal also pointed users to Twitter’s two-factor authentication login settings, which sends a six-digit code to a user’s phone number that is required to log in to the service in addition to username and password.Twitter uses an industry-standard “hashing” mechanism to mask passwords; that replaces the actual password with a “random set of numbers and letters that are stored in Twitter’s system,” Agrawal explained.However, the bug in Twitter’s password-storage system caused user passwords to be stored before completing the hashing process. “We found this error ourselves, removed the passwords, and are implementing plans to prevent this bug from happening again,” Agrawal wrote.In February 2016, Twitter disclosed that it had discovered and fixed a bug in its password-recovery systems within 24 hours after identifying it. That bug, which affected almost 10,000 accounts, didn’t expose passwords but “had the potential to expose the email address and phone number associated with a small number of accounts,” according to the company. In the past, several high-profile Twitter accounts have been hijacked by hackers — including those of Netflix, HBO, Marvel, and even Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey himself. Those incidents don’t appear to be related the bug Twitter just disclosed. It’s also worth noting that Twitter isn’t alone in being susceptible to account hacks: For example, last summer someone broke into the Instagram account of Selena Gomez and posted a nude pic of ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
