Internet is a tool that we use every day. In addition to using it to communicate with others, there are more and more people who visit different websites to buy clothes, books, toys or even to make the purchase of the week and thus save the time it takes us to go to the supermarket.Whatever the tasks we do on the network or the utility we give to the Internet, we have to have one very clear thing: we must protect all our data correctly. Through the Internet, there are people who are able to know the personal data of others and even steal them without having to leave home. Image: iStock Today there are many different cyber threats that we can find on the web. And although there are already professionals who fight to eliminate them, there are some that continue to evolve, thus becoming the most dangerous of all. What are the biggest threats on the Internet? Phishing is one of the most popular ways to steal information on the Internet. This specialty within the “cyber theft”, consists of sending emails to the victims posing as a reliable website. The objective? That users put their data and thus steal the password and bank details. To avoid this threat, you have to explore the email and everything you put in it before sending any information. No company would ask for such sensitive data by mail. Other threats such as ‘viruses’, ‘worms’ or even ‘botnets’ and large-scale attacks, are other dangerous practices that can be used to infect our devices and steal personal information. Having the antivirus well updated and performing regular analyzes on its status is essential to avoid these security threats.In addition to these, there are many other threats that are a danger to anyone who uses the Internet. Cybercrime increases every year and more and more ingeniously that it is very difficult to control, so to be protected the main thing is to be aware of how dangerous the internet can be and to navigate with caution through its networks. Internet is full of cyber threatsPerforming regular analyzes is essential for cybersecurity.
“He (Cameron) has a strong personal relationship with (Javere) Bell in particular, and I know that he wishes him all the best and would want to see the very best from him wherever he decides to go or whatever decision he takes,” added Anderson, who is also an official at the Cameron Blazers club. “The focus this year is to keep a small group and focus on individuals, especially in the quarter-mile events. The determination is to focus all the energy towards getting everyone in the group to a world-beater level,” Anderson said. “Mr Cameron is happy with the present make-up of the group. There is a nice mix of youth and experience, and the efforts will be geared towards ensuring that the excitement of the youth is guided by the knowledge of those who are more experienced.” In addition to Hyde and James, the group also consists of the likes of Kaliese Spencer and Christine Day. Noted coach Bert Cameron has offered best wishes to his long-time charge Javere Bell and Bobby-Gaye Wilkins-Gooden after the pair’s decision to part ways with his Cameron Blazers set-up ahead of the new season. Bell, who travelled to Rio de Janeiro as a member of Jamaica’s Olympic contingent, is believed to be headed to the Racers Track Club, with Wilkins-Gooden reportedly joining the Akan outfit. Marvin Anderson, one of Cameron’s close advisers, speaking on behalf of the veteran coach, confirmed the departures, while pointing out the club’s focus going forward. Founded in 2012 by Cameron, the 1983 world champion over 400m, the club has enjoyed moderate success, with last season bringing the latest high point at the World Under-20 Championships, where Jaheel Hyde retained his 400m hurdles title, with Tiffany James also claiming gold in the women’s 400m. Notwithstanding, there have been certain letdowns as well, a point that Anderson admitted is not lost on Cameron. “Along the way, there have been some disappointments, and when that happens, people will have to evaluate the situation, and in doing so, he (Cameron) was informed that Javere Bell will be moving on,” Anderson said. “Also, in July, Bobby-Gaye Wilkins-Gooden informed him that she would be moving on.” Wilkins-Gooden, a Pan American and NACAC medallist in the 400m and 4x400m, has been part of the Cameron Blazers Club for the better part of two years but has failed to make headway in her career. Cameron has been guiding Bell, who won the national 400m title in 2013 and qualified for the semi-finals at the World Championships in Moscow a few weeks later, for the last five seasons.

The Episcopal Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Jonathan B.B. Hart has challenged the 577 prospective graduates of the Cuttington University (CU) in Suakoko, Bong County, to make wise use of the skills the university has imparted unto them over the years.Of the prospective graduates, 340 are undergraduate students and 197 post graduate students, while 40 of them are from the Cuttington Junior College based in Kakata, Margibi County. The Episcopal Prelate strongly admonished members of CU’s 53rd graduating class not to use their education to practice corruption and destruction.Preaching on the theme, “Make Use of Your Education,” Bishop Hart cautioned them against behaving like the tenant in the 25th chapter of St. Matthew’s Gospel, who buried his talent and failed to make wise use of it upon receiving the instructions. Bishop Hart’s Sermon was greeted with applauses from the congregation, among them, an array of parents, other family members and government officials.An important part of using their education wisely, he told the prospective graduates, is to make sure to work hard to improve the livelihood of fellow Liberians. The Episcopal Prelate drew particular attention from the congregation when he called on the prospective graduating class to be good ambassadors of Cuttington, and keep the light and image of their Alma-mater burning and high wherever they are called to serve. “I pray that the years you spent at CU in your academic sojourn have made you to become holy and wise, and prepared to use your acquired skills toward building a better Liberia.” He challenged them to go all out and impact society positively, rather than to destroy or corrupt the system as others have done over a period of time in the country’s history. To the administration headed the president, Dr. Henrique Tokpa, faculty and staff, Bishop Hart expressed gratitude for their “sacrifices and enormous contributions” to the institution despite the many challenges. As the chairman of Cuttington’s Board of Trustees, Bishop Hart admitted that he was aware of the administration’s need for better incentives for the sacrifices they make in service to the university. According to him, he was aware of the delay of the university to paying their “just wages.”“I am also aware how these challenges affect the smooth operations of the university, but true, how these situations are brought about to our university by many of us, who award scholarships to students here without making payments of the funds needed to address these challenges,” said. Despite all these challenges, he, however, encouraged them to continue to do their best and remain dedicated and committed to their duties.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Just days after heated arguments in the Chambers of the House of Representatives over a proposition to make Liberia a ‘Christian State’, Liberian Muslims have said that they will not resort to any form of violence in their opposition to Christian groups that are seeking for the country to be declared a ‘Christian State’. The Chief Imam of Liberia, Alhaji Muhammad Abdullah Sheriff, said Liberian Muslims have remained peaceful and have promoted coexistence since the formative days of the state.To amend the 1986 Constitution, Liberians are expected to go to a referendum to adopt several proposals, including the controversial proposal to make Liberia a ‘Christian State’, which Liberian Muslims have objected to, fearing that they will be declared second class citizens.Imam Sheriff told his audience, which with the exception of Imams who have converged from the 15 counties and other members of the Muslim community also included stakeholders from the security sector, other religious leaders and the office of the National Peace Ambassador of Liberia, at the Unity Mosque in Fish Market, in Monrovia, that Liberian Muslims have resolved to be ambassadors of peace and will continue to say no to violence.He said Liberian Muslims are aware of ‘some unscrupulous’ people in the global Muslim community who continue to make their religion look bad in the eyes of the rest of the world. “Their actions clearly contradict the Qur’an. As for us (Liberian Muslims) we will continue to be agents of peace,” he said.He added that the NICL will continue to work for the propagation of ‘true Islam’ in the interest of all humanity. “We have resolved to be peaceful, and will remain peaceful forever and ever,” he said, adding that the Imams must lead this endeavor.Conflicting StanceHowever, the conference hall of the Unity Mosque went silent for moments when Sheikh Ali Krayee, Deputy Chief Imam for National Affairs, in a strong tone said Liberian Muslims will not allow themselves to be reduced to second class citizens in their own country, with clear reference to the proponents of the ‘Christian State’ proposition.He said those who are pushing for Liberia to become a ‘Christian State’ are themselves enemies of the state. “They are creating a time bomb that can explode where no one will escape. No group of people will accept to be considered second class in their land of birth,” he said, although proponents of the ‘Christian State’ agenda have refuted claims that they would reduce Liberian Muslims to second class citizens. Imam Krayee, who is Krahn by tribe, described Liberian Muslims as peaceful but promised not to bow to any decision that will reduce them to second class in their own nation though he did not explain what is involved in his promise. Serving as the guest speaker at the event, the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) Force Commander, General Saleh Zuhair Uba, said there is a need for Liberians to unite in order to maintain the hard-earned peace that the country currently enjoys. He said UNMIL will continue to support all who want to see peace in Liberia, because this is the only way the society will strive. He told the NICL that they have chosen the right path, which is in the interest of Liberia.Other dignitaries who graced the occasion were representatives from the embassies of Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the United States of America, as well as some organs of the UN. Also present was the National Peace Ambassador of Liberia, Rev. William R. Tolbert III.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

A FACEBOOK campaign to have All Star Kevin Cassidy re-instated to the county team has started on Facebook.So far around 100 people have Liked the page.A number of fans have left comments on the Bring Back Kevin Cassidy Facebook page. Sources close to Jim McGuinness and the management team however say that the defender will not be invited back to the panel. We understand that Cassidy gave a staunch defence of his right to make comments.Meanwhile friends of the Gaoth Dobhair man told donegaldaily.com that he had ‘no regrets’ about cooperating with the book which led to his dismissal from the county team.“He feels it has been blown out of all proportion and most people have not read the book in its entirety,” said a close friend.“Kevin is obviously gutted because as we saw this year, he’s still got great ability and would have loved to have been in the 2012 panel. “But he feels he did nothing wrong and was absolutely loyal to the team and the cause of Donegal.”Management sources however felt the content of the book was “way outside” what was expected of a senior player.The Facebook campaign is at:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-BACK-Kevin-Cassidy/281401245233622© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com CAMPAIGN STARTED TO ‘BRING BACK KEVIN CASSIDY’ TO COUNTY TEAM was last modified: November 9th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:expelled from squadfacebook campaigngaa all starKevin Cassidy
John Terry has been given the green light to return to action and will feature in an Under-21 game against Fulham this evening.Chelsea were hopeful their skipper would be able to take part in the match at the Blues’ Cobham training ground.And Terry, who has been named in the starting line-up, is expected to play 45 minutes.It is his first outing since suffering a knee injury against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge two months ago.Interim manager Rafael Benitez this week stated that he would consider Terry for first-team selection if he came through this week’s match unscathed.Click here for today’s Chelsea quizSee also:Blow for Chelsea as Terry stays sidelinedInjured Terry still unable to return Bone bruising prolongs Terry’s injury woeTerry could return to action this 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts ReadWrite’s Taylor Hatmaker is right about one thing: 2013 should indeed be a unusual year for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), as the industry struggles to find the next big thing.(Read CES 2013: 5 Things You Won’t See.)Rattled by declining prices and lingering worries over the “fiscal cliff,” gadget makers are likely to be more conservative than ever, focusing on extending tried-and-true trends rather than breaking out brand new ideas.In fact, it’s likely that CES 2013 is going to be, well, boring. As a 20-year veteran of the show, here’s what I am expecting to see in Vegas this year:1. MicrosoftNo, I’m not totally disagreeing with Taylor here. As she correctly notes, 2012 was the last year that Microsoft plans to appear at the Consumer Electronics Show, although Consumer Electronics Association chief Gary Shapiro portrayed the company’s absence as a “hiatus.” Right.Microsoft may not have bought booth space, but it will be represented by its manufacturing partners, which plan to show off Windows 8 PCs, tablets, all-in-ones and convertibles. The personal computer is simply too big to ignore, but I hear that the number of pitches for Windows 8 PC unveilings at CES is down, and that many companies are focusing on trivial matters, such as new colors. (Colors!?) Even the Surface Pro isn’t expected to show up at CES, even though it’s due out soon.2. Tablets – From Off BrandsYes, Taylor’s right that a veritable flood of tablets were launched at the 2012 CES, but history tells us that where the big names tread, the smaller names are sure to follow. Amazon and Google, as well as Apple, have shown that there’s a market for smaller, more manageable tablet form factors, and second- and third-tier providers are likely to try and bleed cost further out of the equation. You’ll still see a number of Android tablets, mostly from by manufacturers you’ve never heard of.Plus, I think we’ll see more purpose-built tablets and peripherals. Last year, Razer showed off Project Fiona, a gaming tablet that ended up being vaporware. But I still believe that some manufacturer will throw out a Nexus 7-sized tablet with a Microsoft-style touch keyboard cover attached to it, and see if anyone will bite. Also look for tablet makers to try and shoehorn their products into some sort of software/hardware ecosystem.By the way, Taylor’s right: most major smartphone announcements are being delayed until Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress in February.3. TVs That People Will Actually BuyPeople aren’t buying 3D televisions. And while manufacturers will likely show off 4K, UltraHD TV technology, Taylor correctly points out that high prices and a lack of content make UltraHD pointless for most people right now. UltraHD doesn’t make sense until cameras, cable and TVs all support it. (Still, while I may not buy the mammoth 110-inch UHDTV Westinghouse will show off at CES, that doesn’t mean I don’t want it.)What people will buy, however, are connected televisions – and ways to connect their TVs – especially if they’re cheap. Westinghouse just announced a television that supports its Streaming Stick, a $100 plastic stick that plugs into compliant televisions. There’s still too much confusion here, which is why peripheral manufacturers like Roku and the small Google TV ecosystem just won’t go away.4. Connected ContentThis is a catch-all category, encompassing everything from connected cars to second-screen apps that fling content to TVs and other devices, as well as peripherals that stream audio from Pandora and other services. This may sound like old news, but connected services creeping into more and more mundane devices is actually a game changer.I’m hoping for more on the automotive front, but everything I’ve heard points to more autonomous automotive safety features, rather than suites of connected services. Blame the carriers’ data caps for this: Streaming high-bandwidth media into your car might quickly blow through your data plan. Sending maps and other low-bandwidth data services makes more sense .5. Digital Health/FitnessThey will never equal the splash of a new big-screen TV or smartphone, but digital fitness products should have an, er, healthy presence at CES. Consumers want things to both track their progress and distract them while exercising, and technology manufacturers are stepping up.6. CrapSeriously, I’ve seen enough smartphone cases to last a lifetime. USB keys, external hard drives, notebook sleeves, USB lights, fans, stickers and the like dominate huge swaths of CES’s show floor. Sure there’s a market for some of this stuff, but there’s a fine line between junk and innovation. You know what I’m really hoping to see? Personal drones. Yes, the ones that we’d otherwise use to spy on enemy soldiers. I’d like to see a whole corner of the show floor devoted to those things, as a tool for tracking game, scouting inaccessible locations, and otherwise just having fun.Would it be controversial? Absolutely. And that’s just what CES needs. Otherwise, I’m afraid this year’s show may end up being the dullest one in years.For more, check out CES 2013: 5 Things You Won’t See.Image source: Flickr/PrimeImageMedia.com. markhachman Tags:#CES 2013#health#Microsoft#streaming#streaming music#Streaming video#tablets#television Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology

A mentor is a skilled person who you admire in particular areas who agrees to come alongside you to help you grow in that specific area. Once you understand that concept you discover that it’s possible to have a number of mentors at the same time, each one contributing to your life in a specific area. So when should you seek out a mentor? Whenever you have an area of your life that you would like specific help with. On this episode of In The Arena, Claire Diaz-Ortiz shares insights from her new book, “The One Minute Mentor.”How can you find the best mentor for you?There are hurdles to finding good mentors, simply because those who are successful enough to serve you well as a mentor will also be the people who are already in high demand. Begin looking for a mentor by identifying your specific area of need and then observing who is in your circle who is strong in that area. Once you have a list of candidates, refine your own understanding of your need so you will be able to approach mentor candidates with clarity and precision when it comes to describing exactly what you’re looking for. Find out more tips for locating and connecting with a great mentor on this episode, with Claire Diaz-Ortiz.How can you find the best mentor for you?Click To TweetCross-generational mentoring is a powerful personal growth tool.Much of the wisdom you lack at any given time in life is due to the fact that you simply don’t have the experience you need – yet. But there are others in your field who have already fought those battles. They’ve already crossed those bridges – and typically, they are going to be of a different generation than you. On this episode of In The Arena, Anthony chats with Claire Diaz-Ortiz, co-author of the new book, “The One Minute Mentor.” Anthony and Claire spend a good deal of their conversation talking about the benefits of cross-generational mentoring, so make sure you don’t miss their chat.Honesty and vulnerability are vital to the mentoring process.No mentoring relationship will reach its full potential if either the mentor or the mentee is unwilling – for any reason – to be transparent. It’s the real life struggles and difficulties of life that highlight the areas where we most need to grow. They are also the places where the greatest lessons are learned. When a mentor and mentee allow their mentoring process to be enriched by their own honesty, amazing benefits come to both of them.

Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now You are not being rejected. You are being told no. These two things are very different.If you are dating someone for years, and you believe that your relationship is going to continue, and the person you love refuses your marriage proposal, you have been rejected. It’s personal. The person to whom you proposed has made a decision that you are absolutely not the kind of person with whom they want to spend the rest of their life. See, they know you well enough to reject you.When you call someone to ask them for their time, your request is being rejected, but you are not personally being rejected. Your dream client doesn’t know you well enough to reject you personally. They are simply telling you no.The no you hear isn’t personal. It is simply feedback. The no answer to your request means your dream client does not believe that the time you are asking for isn’t what you offered in trade (see The Lost Art of Closing: Winning the 10 Commitments That Drive Sales for more on Trading Value). Because they didn’t hear a strong enough value proposition, they are refusing your offer.Improving your approach means paying attention to this feedback that the no provides you so you can sharpen your message and try again. This is something that you will not do if you sit and wallow in your sorrow because you feel that you were personally rejected. Listen, you don’t have the kind of relationship with a prospect that makes a no to a meeting request a rejection, so don’t be so sensitive.Later on, after you’ve won some clients, you’ll get to feel rejection when your client decides to work with your competitor because they feel that you have been complacent and believed you were impossible to replace. Your client will feel a little something when they inform you that they’ve gone with your competitor, and it will feel a lot more like rejection, but know that this too is just a form of feedback.
