NBC is going for the gold this year and offering up an extensive live stream of the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, in virtual reality for US pay-TV subscribers. With nearly all of the medal ceremonies being held outdoors, the exception being ice hockey, it's essential that the Olympians are outfitted properly.

Used in ice rinks, as well as in food industry refrigeration and building HVAC systems, Dow heat transfer fluids offer fast-freezing, and lower operating and maintenance costs, as well as corrosion protection for metal pipes, according to the press release.

Previously, Taeyang performed his cheer song for the "2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics" at various Pyeongchang promo concerts.

Researchers have also warned that in the run up to the Winter Olympics, attackers will continue to use the event as a lure to carry out cyber-attacks.

UK bans manufacture of products containing microbeads over environmental concerns
Microplastics are only one type of plastic that ends up in the oceans and can harm marine life, the BBC reported . Last year, researchers at the University of Bath developed biodegradable beads made from cellulose.

The hackers used lures, including one urging targets to click a button claiming it would help to display the content of the Word document.

"The majority of these organisations had some association with the Olympics, either in providing infrastructure or in a supporting role", the security firm said. "The steganography tool works by embedding the bytes of a script into the pixels of the image file, giving the attacker the ability to hide malicious PowerShell code in a visible image on a remote server", explained McAfee researchers Ryan Sherstobitoff and Jessica Saavedra-Morale.

'The attacker's objective is to make analysis hard and to evade detection technologies that rely on pattern matching.

In the attacks, which began as early as Dec 22, e-mail messages were "spoofed" to make them appear to come from South Korea's National Counter-Terrorism Centre, which was in the process of conducting anti-terror drills in the region in preparation for the Games.
