Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier.

The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

Who's behind the Equation Group?
Kaspersky hints it may be the NSA since it targets big companies, institutions and other govs like laser surgery and due to its complexity. 
If you somehow knew you'd been infected by the Equation Group, your only choice would be to grab a hammer.

PARIS (AP) — More than a million people surged through the boulevards of Paris behind dozens of world leaders walking arm-in-arm Sunday in a rally for unity described as the largest demonstration in French history. Millions more marched around the country and the world to repudiate three days of terror that killed 17 people and changed France.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Excellent Forbes Article on the Group Malware Family
Some of this code goes back 10 or more years and has been lurking around without detection.
Kaspersky details the Equation cyber espionage group, which uses a vast array of unprecedented hacker tools and is believed to be part of the NSA. There are also links to Stuxnet, the infamous malware that infected an Iranian uranium enrichment plant.

Is the Uber Economy Driving the US Economy Backwards
Interesting analogy between the growing "freelance" economy and the 19th century at the dawn of the industrial revolution. Are Uber drivers good jobs for our country in the long term?

So if it's such a great trade deal, why is it so secret that not only can the public not see it, most Congressmen can't  either? 1,600 meetings and no public document as to what the trade deal is. What are they hiding till the last minute? 
WASHINGTON -- Progressive unrest over free trade policies is shaping up to be a major issue in the contest for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, if a strongly worded letter from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to the top Obama administration ...
