VACATIONS FOR THE TRAVELING COUPLE

There is perhaps no better way to form an everlasting bond with a significant other than to travel the world with them. Whether your ideal vacation is to relax, go on daily adventures, or take advantage of all the room service at your disposal, doing so with a loved one is unlike most experiences. For couples seeking that perfect getaway, consider any of the following destinations for a romantic, and surely enjoyable time.

France

This may be a no-brainer for those looking to really treat their significant others, but France has some of the most scenic towns in all of Europe, specifically Chassignolles. Paris may be a little too cliche for some, so it is recommended to seek out smaller locations when traveling as a couple. Though it only has one hotel in town, Chassignolles is truly a sight to see. With meadows filled with flowers, farms hosting herds of cows, and food markets found around town, this virtually private getaway is a perfect environment for two.

New York, New York

An obvious vacation destination for anyone, New York City has more culture within its five boroughs than most states do in their entire borders. The change of scenery that occurs when one goes from the bustling avenues of Times Square to the cobblestone streets of Brooklyn is truly remarkable. Landmarks like the Plaza Hotel not only provide an extremely luxurious hotel stay (though fairly expensive), but shops offering handmade jewelry, high quality clothes, champagne bars, and more, making it ideal for spoiling your significant other.

Aside from the countless hotels at your expense in this city, there are literally thousands of restaurants to choose from for a romantic candlelit dinner, one of which being Salon de Ning on Fifth Avenue. Some of the amenities that come with this 1930’s Shanghai inspired restaurant are mandarin cocktails, heat lamps for colder nights, and an absolutely stunning view of the city; all the right ingredients for a memorable date.

Italy

You could visit almost any town in Italy and find a romantic hotspot. The country is full of stunning wineries, towns, mountains, and beaches that make any trip worth the long flight from the United States. Coastal villages may be your best option when planning a romantic trip, as most of the major cities will more than likely be crowded year-round. The town of Vico Equense for example, has some of the best restaurants you can find with the freshest seafood, and views that put some classical art pieces to shame.

Nova Scotia


For a colder-climate vacation, the eastern Canadian province of Nova Scotia has some of the most aesthetic bed-and-breakfast’s in the world. There are a number of art galleries around the island, rustic homes weathered by the salty winds, and fishing ports for those that may want to catch their own dinners. Tours along the shorelines are offered as well for romantic sunrises or sunsets, making the views some of the most romantic aspects of a trip here.

The Best Car Models for Uber and Lyft Drivers

Making a profit as a rideshare driver takes some financial planning. How many hours do you need to drive per week? What are the best times? What are the best areas? While these questions answer how to boost hourly earnings, they do not address the other huge concern for drivers, vehicle expenses.

Fuel, insurance, car repairs, maintenance, and, of course, the cost of the vehicle and car payments, all take a big bite out of rideshare earnings. Because rideshare drivers are independent contractors, they are responsible for all of these costs. With the typical rideshare driver putting upwards of 1,000 miles per week on their vehicles, these costs can turn a great earnings year into one with a less-than- desirable profit level.

The choice of vehicle makes the most difference when it comes to vehicle-related costs. For obvious reasons, fuel efficiency matters. Rideshare drivers also need to consider reliability and maintenance costs. Time that a rideshare vehicle is in the shop is money lost for the driver, not to mention the repair bill. Longevity is also crucial. The longer a vehicle can go without replacement, the more money in the driver’s pocket.

Based on these important factors, Consumer Reports compiled its list of the best cars for rideshare drivers. All the vehicles are pre-owned, since it makes little sense for rideshare drivers to buy new. Depreciation on new cars is simply too much when you drive big mileage.

Toyota Prius

The Prius is the top pick because of its reliability, longevity, and fuel economy. It’s also stylish and comfortable.

Toyota Camry

A bit more roomy than the Prius and needing a bit more gas, the Camry is nonetheless efficient and long lasting. It can handle 1,000 miles per week. It also gets a great safety rating, an important consideration when you’re on the road so much.

Kia Soul

Rideshare drivers love this little SUV just as much as the chipmunks in Kia’s commercials. Its boxy style provides plenty of passenger room. Gas mileage is great, and so is its reliability.

Honda CRV

Though not the most fuel efficient on the list, the CRV provides the 4-wheel drive you need for bad weather. If you work in a snowy climate, you can make big money driving in snowy conditions, when surge pricing goes off the charts. The CRV gets you there when other rideshare drivers have to stay home.

Plus Size and luxury

Both Uber and Lyft offer double the rate for drivers who can take more than 4 passengers or provide a luxury car. The Honda Odyssey provides a great value for additional passenger capacity, and the Lexus ES provides luxury without breaking the bank.

The Best Online Resources for Planning Your Trip

Booking.com

Ranked by reviews.com as the best overall travel site, Booking.com allows users to effortlessly find the accommodations and surrounding resources for any destination!

TripAdvisor

Unfortunately, most anyone can leave a review on this site. However, it is a great resource for getting rankings and lots of reviews. Most TripAdvisor users have a quality experience when relying on the reviews of the site to make a vacationing decision, and have found the majority of the reviews to be accurate.

Kayak

When it comes to finding flights for a trip, going right to the airline sight may not present the best results. Luckily, Kayak developed a system that searches all of the airline sites in addition to other travel booking sites to compare prices. Frequent flyers swear by Kayak and its ability to find the best option for any budget.

Security in Telecommunications: Today's Threats and What to Know

Telecommunication is communication via electronic means; such as telephone, satellite, radio, TV broadcasting, etc. Telecom is vital because they are responsible for the storage and transfer of sensitive data. Because of this, Telecom is at a higher risk for cyber attacks. Cybercriminals are targeting sensitive information from businesses and it’s customers and subscribers. It’s important to understand the different types of risks in order to work closely with IT and cybersecurity to prevent them.

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)

With all of the advancements in Telecom, cybercriminals are utilizing new methods to infiltrate. A major concern for cybersecurity is distributed denial of service (DDoS). DDoS attacks happen when a cybercriminal overwhelms a website with outside sources; this effects performance, network capacity, and can bring down the site completely. Normally, DDoS attacks are a distraction so cybercriminals can access private information like emails, home addresses, bank information, etc. Telecom companies have a higher risk of DDoS attacks.

Targeted Attacks (ATP Campaigns)

Targeted attacks, also known as ATP campaigns, is when an advanced hacker targets a Telecom company directly; accessing it’s personal network and exposing data and information to third parties. Although these attacks are difficult and require advanced tools and hackers, they’re not uncommon. Cybercriminals who gain access to a Telecom company’s core can listen in and tamper with calls and data; they can also imitate and track subscribers.

Cloud Security

Cloud security is popular among many businesses due to its costs, auto-updates, and efficiency. The downfall of cloud security is that it’s more susceptible to security breaches. Surprisingly, insider security breaches are very common in cloud security. Employees can use their information to access important customer documents and financial forms.

Malware

Malicious codes are a threat to Telecom companies, but they seem to hit cloud computing systems frequently. If a cybercriminal manages to implant a malware code or script, they can eavesdrop and steal data from users. Malware can inconspicuously hide among the cloud system; making it easy to hack and tough to remove. USB devices, routers, and even phones can be attacked from Malware.

Research shows that the number of detected security incidents climbed 45% more from 2014-2015, and this number continues to grow. Cybersecurity cannot be underestimated; hackers are getting more advanced and using better tools to breach Telecom.
