Indeed. I follow a lot of folks on both sides of the political spectrum who dislike the police state. While they use different language and come at the problem from very different experiences, they have more common cause than they realize.
This is not a political post. It is an observation about our society. Where we've been, where we are now, and where we are going.
If you went back to the 60s and the womens sufferage of the generation before, you would see that the whom medium of being set free equals first women began it in the American early west, then as the world moved to older and older years, we find women taking their shot at total freedom....along side the 60s and the bra burning and the sexual revolution. The whole world could be benefited how the US has changed to meet the new era. Did other ethnic efforts evolve from the woman sufferage, and other society from the proof in the effort. Success, did America build the oil industry for all nations while they laid back in the social freedoms of older social demoncracvy of the oldest society known to man. Is it said that money and women can grind out change Look for Hilary to be the next president if that holds truth. Or if the world needs to slow down and gather stock for a few decades....does it mean that Trump will hold the presidency.
You don't help anyone when you deny them their agency (that goes for parents first, but also professors and staff).
1. Stuff X happened
2. If hypothesis Y is false then the chances of something as extreme as X (for some definition of extreme) happening is less than p.
3. p is small, therefore it is likely that Y is true.
I'm going to ignore the fact that this isn't a sound argument. (An example of a sound argument might be "if X happened then Y is true with probability p. X happened and p is large. Therefore Y is likely true.)
One problem with the argument in 1, 2 and 3 is that if you try many different things that result in many different Xs you expect to be able to eventually cherry pick a suitable X that can be used to justify Y even if it's unlikely.
Given how obvious this problem is, why has it been getting a lot of attention so recently? I remember talking about this with researchers 30 years ago and nobody seemed to care.
Looks like voter information might as well be public record.
I feel bad for the kids in the dorms. This is a town that claims you don't need A/C. We should probably leave out beverages in the library for folks trying to escape the heat.
For the average user there is no reason why they need a full version of Windows on their computer at home. I prefer PC gaming, but it isn't necessary. And I prefer a full Office suite and a few useful utility programs. But for the price and the hassle I've been thinking the PC I've got at home will likely be my last. If Microsoft pulls these shenanigans, then they've made my mind up for me.
My apologies for the Forbes link, beware of their ad blocker policy.
Riddle me this Batman, why would only 1 in 4 professors in the UC system actually bother to submit their publications to the Open-Access system that has been provided?
We can get caught up in the narrow motivations of the publish-or-perish treadmill, and I know that there might be some small technical barrier (aka I'm not even sure how to submit my paper), but 25% seems more like a deliberate protest vote.
The article suggests faculty have just enough cover from the challenges of the system to enable their naturally contrarian tendencies. To my mind that makes the non-compliance all the more troubling.
Until they clean up their act, ad blocking is a necessary security measure regardless of whether or not the ads degrade the user experience. Websites have a legitimate need to generate revenue with ads, but until their practices are as legitimate as their need, it is both fair and just to shut the threat vector down.
Troy Hunt on the problems people cause when they try to appear to solve problems.
This is in Dutch, but it should be clear what's going on anyway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5FIxRsqFUA
Stop scrolling please. Go turn 2-Factor on. It'll just take a moment and it is easier than ever to use. Thank you.
I did not say I did not understand why they were not following the strict rules... Just stated they were not. Convenience vs. security - unfortunately most of the time, convenience must win or productivity is lost.
No need to panic, but it's time to take another serious look at Microsoft Office Documents and the Macro payloads they can carry. This is an excellent treatment of the history of the problem as well as why they've come back.
The default behavior of Microsoft Office has usually allowed for inadvertent execution of malicious macros, but recent versions of Microsoft Office make it much easier for the user to make the wrong decision.
If you wish to protect your systems, restrict access to macros. Regardless of the level of information provided to an end-user, don't always rely on that user to make the right choice.
