32 Babies Born at Stony Brook This Past Weekend... We're now just 194 births away from the 100,000th delivery!
Stony Brook Medicine has launched a countdown towards the upcoming 100,000th birth of a baby (or babies, if a multiple birth) at Stony Brook University Hospital. The first delivery at Stony Brook was in May 1980 and today nearly 4,000 babies are born each year at Stony Brook University Hospital. Double congratulations to Loriann and James Starr of Brookhaven, Long Island! Their twin boys, Martin Thomas and Luke Tyler, were born at Stony Brook University Hospital on July 29th at 8:08am and 8:10am. They join big brother, James Paul, who was also born at Stony Brook University Hospital, on Dec. 23, 2012. Best wishes to the Starr family.

Tech Support Scams appeared first in 2008 and since then, despite various crackdowns by the Federal Trade Commission, there have been thousands of individuals who have fallen victim and lost hundreds of millions of dollars. Nick Nikiforakis, an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Stony Brook University and member of the National Security Institute, has been awarded a $67K grant from the Cyber Research Institute (CRI) to continue his research and work in technical support scams to help this ongoing issue. The grant will fund his research project, Tools and Techniques for Understanding and Detecting Technical Support Scams, which investigates the techniques used by scammers and designs effective defense systems against those scams.
