Our guide features expert recommendations for beach, villa, culture, cruise, food and drink and activity holidays. Palmizana Hotel, near Hvar Croatia’s most fashionable island resort, Hvar Town, has counted Prince Harry, Keira Knightley and Daniel Craig among its guests. It’s a magnet for yachting types, hence the expensive rustic-chic seafood restaurants. Escape the achingly chic by 15-minute taxi ride to the Palmizana Hotel, a pleasingly quirky choice on a secluded island that is perfect for children. Young people here can run wild in nature – there’s no traffic – and the small beach gives on to a sheltered bay with shallow water. The setting is ideal for outdoorsy kids – and adults – who love to explore. From the hotel’s terrace, where you’ll find an art gallery, steps lead down to a pebble beach, with sunbeds and parasols.

Olympic Skier Bode Miller's 19-Month-Old Daughter Drowns
Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife, volleyball player Morgan Beck, are
The 19-month-old daughter of U.S. Olympic skier Bode Miller drowned in a Southern California swimming pool, authorities said on Monday. Emeline Miller died at an Orange County hospital Sunday, the day after paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive her after the drowning incident. "We are beyond devastated," Miller said in an Instagram post that showed several photos of the blonde, blue-eyed, chubby-cheeked toddler. In a video, Emmy, as she was known, was being kissed on the check by her mother Morgan, a professional beach volleyball player, as she repeatedly said, "Hi Dada." One photo showed her covered in suds in a tub and another showed her smiling as she pushed two baby dolls in a pink stroller on a street with large homes in the background. "Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this," Miller said in the post. "Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to its fullest every day." In this file photo taken on February 16, 2017 US Ski racer Bode Miller poses for a photograph with his daughter Emma at the Tyrol night during the 2017 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships Credit: AFP The death was under investigation, Orange County sheriff's spokeswoman Carrie Braun said. Paramedics were called to a home in the upscale enclave of Coto de Caza just before 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, said Capt. Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority. They tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate the girl and rushed her to an emergency room, Bommarito said. "They had no pulses the whole way," Bommarito said. "It didn't end well." The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team tweeted its condolences to Miller and his family. Terribly sad news in the Olympic Movement today. #TeamUSA sends sincere condolences to @MillerBode and his family, along with wishes of strength and comfort.— U.S. Olympic Team (@TeamUSA) June 12, 2018 Miller, 40, is the most decorated male U.S. skier with 33 World Cup wins, two overall titles, four world championships and six Olympic medals, including gold at the 2010 Vancouver Games in the super-combined. At the 2014 Sochi games, he was the oldest alpine skier - at age 36 - to win a medal. Devastating news. My deepest condolences to you and your family @MillerBode ����— lindsey vonn (@lindseyvonn) June 11, 2018 Miller, who has three other children, asked for privacy for the family in his Instagram post.

Not everyone is so hot about this free USB fan handed to journalists at Trump-Kim summit

While the world's eyes watch Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un meet in Singapore, journalists have seemingly been treated rather well while covering the event.

But caution has been advised over one tiny freebie.

Not only have the 3,000 journalists been well-fed during the summit, they've also received a goody bag. Inside the bag there's a bottle of water, a handheld fan featuring Jong-Un's face, and a Sentosa guidebook. Pretty standard.

However, also enclosed was a blue, innocent-looking mini USB fan, a nod to Singapore's searing temperatures. Not so hot about it was the information security community.

"Do not plug this in. Do not keep it," tweeted journalist Barton Gellman, who led coverage on the U.S. National Security Agency after receiving top secret documents from Edward Snowden.

The risk is the device could be a covert method of installing malware onto the computers of journalists covering the summit.

"It certainly can be a security risk," Matthew Warren, professor of cyber security at Australia's Deakin University, explained to Mashable.

"The idea of the USB is a way of connecting devices to computers, and either exchanging data or drawing power for operations. The problem is, there's been a number of examples where USB devices can be hijacked and malicious code can be put on them."

Security researchers Karsten Nohl and Jakob Lell demonstrated malware they had developed, called BadUSB, at the Black Hat Conference back in 2014.

The malware is installed in the firmware of the USB drive, and not in its flash memory storage, which makes it undetectable. It also means other USB peripherals, like fans, can also be used to covertly carry attack code.

Once plugged in, the malware can "completely take over a PC, invisibly alter files installed from the memory stick, or even redirect the user's internet traffic," WIRED noted at the time.

"Security hasn't been built in to these USB devices," Warren added. "I certainly wouldn't be putting [the fan] in my machine."

Of course, it could be very well and true that the USB fan is just a USB fan. We'll just have to see about that.

Not everyone is so hot about this free USB fan handed to journalists at Trump-Kim summit

While the world's eyes watch Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un meet in Singapore, journalists have seemingly been treated rather well while covering the event.

But caution has been advised over one tiny freebie.

Not only have the 3,000 journalists been well-fed during the summit, they've also received a goody bag. Inside the bag there's a bottle of water, a handheld fan featuring Jong-Un's face, and a Sentosa guidebook. Pretty standard.

However, also enclosed was a blue, innocent-looking mini USB fan, a nod to Singapore's searing temperatures. Not so hot about it was the information security community.

"Do not plug this in. Do not keep it," tweeted journalist Barton Gellman, who led coverage on the U.S. National Security Agency after receiving top secret documents from Edward Snowden.

The risk is the device could be a covert method of installing malware onto the computers of journalists covering the summit.

"It certainly can be a security risk," Matthew Warren, professor of cyber security at Australia's Deakin University, explained to Mashable.

"The idea of the USB is a way of connecting devices to computers, and either exchanging data or drawing power for operations. The problem is, there's been a number of examples where USB devices can be hijacked and malicious code can be put on them."

Security researchers Karsten Nohl and Jakob Lell demonstrated malware they had developed, called BadUSB, at the Black Hat Conference back in 2014.

The malware is installed in the firmware of the USB drive, and not in its flash memory storage, which makes it undetectable. It also means other USB peripherals, like fans, can also be used to covertly carry attack code.

Once plugged in, the malware can "completely take over a PC, invisibly alter files installed from the memory stick, or even redirect the user's internet traffic," WIRED noted at the time.

"Security hasn't been built in to these USB devices," Warren added. "I certainly wouldn't be putting [the fan] in my machine."

Of course, it could be very well and true that the USB fan is just a USB fan. We'll just have to see about that.
