    The Internet has developed into an entity that pervades all aspects of daily life. While this has many advantages, like constant access to the myriad wonders of YouTube, there are also many darker avenues down which one can travel, sometimes unwittingly.

    The imperiled Nigerian prince in desperate need of money and basic grammar lessons has become a veritable comedic goldmine and has raised awareness of Internet scammers. But not all are so humorous or so obvious.

    Feverish college students, desperate to gain résumé experience that makes them employable, are particularly vulnerable to job scammers.

    Recently, a fraudulent job posting, claiming to be able to give students easy, flexible work for good wages and without contact, was discovered on FirstClass. This is not the first such incident.

    The ad directed interested applicants to page131.com, where they were prompted to enter credit card information in order to pay a one time start up fee of $19.95.

    Without doing too much research, this could appear to be a legitimate job posting; so, in an age where criminals can easily masquerade as legitimate entities, how can real job opportunities be distinguished from fake ones?

    With discernment and a few questions, the good can be sorted from the bad.

    With any non-physical job application, start with a basic Internet search. If a company appears under multiple hits from any given search, chances are they’re legitimate. C...

    A lot of privacy advocates have been looking closely at the “deep web,” the enormous number of websites that aren’t indexed by Google, as an alternative to more “public” web services. But that came to an end this weekend, where as part of an FBI sting operation, a major hosting company was completely shut down. Furthermore, several sites were infected with malware that essentially outed the identity of whoever visited.

    All this raises a question: Is privacy possible on the Internet? Or, for that matter, should it be?

    The second question needs to be raised for a fairly simple reason: Freedom Hosting, the company in question, was shut down amid accusations that its founder was essentially the world’s biggest dealer in child pornography. One of the questions that few fans of products like the Tor Project or Bitcoin are willing to discuss is the appeal these have not just people opposed to government observation of their behavior for abstract or political reasons, but to people who we pay the government to hunt down and isolate from society, and for excellent reason.

    Privacy is very much on everyone’s mind right now. PRISM, even if it was our own fault, deeply troubles a lot of people. Look no further than the nationwide freakout over six police officers visiting a home for “Googling ‘pressure cookers’” before it came out the police weren’t looking at real-time Googling, but ...

  • Source The avanti group, The benchmark Nikkei tumbled nearly 3 percent on Friday alone as the dollar turned sharply lower against the yen, denting shares of major Japanese exporters.

    A stronger yen hurts firms' competitiveness overseas and shrinks the value of foreign-earned income. "The case for a stronger dollar is looking less compelling as economic data from the UK and Europe augur a stronger euro, while the US Federal Reserve is increasingly seen not tapering its bond purchases until perhaps December at the earliest," Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp. strategist Daisuke Uno told Dow JonesNewswires.

    Other players agreed that currency moves were affecting stocks. "The weaker dollar is the main culprit, partially on growing belief that the (US Federal Reserve) will opt to keep up its easing policy and make less use of rhetoric about 'tapering' its bond-buying programme, which has proved to be a powerful dollar support in the past," said an equity trading director at a foreign brokerage.

    "The start to the present earnings reporting season (in Japan) has also not been rosy -- most likely as a result of unrealistic expectations. Players are now going to eye next week's results with even greater scrutiny, with the US Fed's July 30-31 meeting also coming up," he added.

    The policy meeting will provide clues as to when the Fed will start rolling back its stimulus scheme aimed at stoking the world's largest economy. A tapering of the programme would me...

    De winnaars van de 2013 UK energiezuinig Awards, georganiseerd door het energiezuinig vertrouwen omvatten een gerenoveerde B & B, een sociale woningbouw project en een kantoorgebouw. De awards willen wijzen op de veelzijdigheid van de energiezuinig-standaard die kan worden toegepast op elk gebouw type of grootte.

    Kilde Link MISSOULA — Med finansiering i sted og lovgivningsmæssige godkendelse i hånd, University of Montana går fremad med en serie af byggeprojekter, fra en akademisk hub for studerende atleter til en 9,3 millioner dollars executive training center.
