How about while logged in on a public Wi-Fi connection? If you answered yes to any of the above, you may want to change your Tumblr password ASAP. Tumblr has just made users aware of a serious privacy compromise that enables anybody with the ability to “sniff” traffic on public Wi-Fi networks to view Tumblr users’ passwords in unencrypted plain-text format. The problem arose because the iPad and iPhone apps fail to log users in through a secure server. An official Tumblr announcement urges Tumblr users to change their passwords immediately if they’ve used the app, and to download the newest version of the app as soon as possible:If you’ve been using these apps, you should also update your password on Tumblr and anywhere else you may have been using the same password. It’s also good practice to use different passwords across different services by using an app like 1Password or LastPass.

Anybody who has ever accessed Tumblr over public Wi-Fi from a mobile device, whether at an airport, a coffee shop, or a library, is at risk. Fortunately, Tumblr users don’t seem to be reporting any serious consequences. The Tumblr #password and #security tags abound with users spreading the news, but not with sob stories about compromised accounts. Even if a user does find her account has been compromised, it will be hard to peg it on this security breach in particular.last_img read more

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now Do you define the negative events of your life as only negative? Is there one negative event that you have chosen to use to define yourself?Think about a recent negative event. If you’re reading this, you survived the negative event (You are at least a Phoenix, right?). What lessons did you take away? What new actions will you take now (How can you be a Hydra)?How can you intentionally overcompensate and become antifragile? I am re-reading Nicholas Nassim Taleb‘s Antifragile. It’s a fascinating book, and in my opinion, even better than his prior, more popular book, The Black Swan. Taleb was a derivatives trader, and he successfully predicted the financial crisis of 2007 − 2008 (in fact, he bet on it and made a fortune).To give you some idea about what Antifragile is about, I’ll share with you the three categories into which Taleb sorts things.The first category is called fragile. Things that are fragile are negatively affected by volatility. When something bad happens, fragile things get broken.  They’re left worse off than when they started.The second category is things that are robust. These things aren’t negatively impacted by volatility; they’re resilient. Taleb compares the robust to the mythological bird, the Phoenix. If the Phoenix is killed, it rises again from the ashes. It is not harmed by a negative event–but it isn’t made better, either.The final category is for things that are Antifragile. They are positively affected by volatility. When something bad happens, things that are antifragile actually grow stronger. Taleb uses another mythological creature, the Hydra, as an example of the antifragile. When you cut off one of the Hydra’s heads, two more heads spring up to replace it. By hurting it, you are actually increasing its power.How to Get StrongerYou’ve no doubt heard of post-traumatic stress syndrome. But what about post-traumatic growth syndrome? Did you know that some people actually grow stronger after negative events? Honestly, I had never thought of the concept before reading Taleb’s book. He confesses he hadn’t either. But when you think about it, you know people who have grown through adversity, don’t you? In fact, you might be one.When you exercise with weights, you actually tear the muscle. This is a trauma to the muscle fiber. But the muscle repairs itself and grows stronger. The same is true when you break a bone. The bone fuses itself back together and grows stronger where it was broken. It seems we humans were actually born to be antifragile–at least physically. But what do you have to change to be antifragile psychologically?The way to get stronger is take something positive from negative events. Instead of defining the event as negative (or letting it define you) you take the learning from the event and define it as positive. Like Nietzsche: “That which does not kill me makes me stronger.”last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY — A judge is giving final instructions to jurors in the trial for a man accused of killing a Calgary woman and her young daughter in 2016.Edward Downey is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of 34-year-old Sara Baillie and five-year-old Taliyah Marsman.Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Beth Hughes says jurors must not be influenced by public opinion and must ignore comments they heard from the courtroom gallery during the emotional three-week trial.The Crown’s theory is that Downey believed Baillie influenced her best friend to break up with him and to decline to work as an escort.The Crown argued Baillie’s daughter was a witness who needed silencing.  Downey testified he was in Baillie’s apartment the day she was found dead, but that he was there to buy cocaine from two other men, not hurt anyone.“You must consider the evidence and make your decision on a rational and fair consideration of all the evidence, and not on passion, or sympathy, or prejudice against the accused, the Crown or anyone else connected with the case,” Hughes told jurors Wednesday.Loved ones of the victims often wept as they heard graphic evidence during the trial and there were some emotional outbursts.“Any comments from the public gallery are inappropriate and must be ignored. Your duty as jurors is to assess the evidence impartially.”The trial heard Baillie was found dead in a laundry hamper in her daughter’s closet the evening of July 11, 2016, with duct tape wrapped around her face, neck and wrists. Taliyah was gone.The girl’s remains were found in some bushes east of the city three days later.The trial heard both died by asphyxiation.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

March is proving to be tough — retail sales are not picking up as corporate spend has dried up,” says Rakesh Srivastava, senior VP, marketing and sales, at Hyundai Motors, to The Economic Times.Even dominant player Maruti Suzuki is facing difficulties due to slowing demand, with almost all of its models priced at a discount of 15 percent to on-road price, excluding newly-launched DZire. “Market conditions are tough. Discounts have peaked as retail sales haven’t picked up on a lacklustre Budget for the industry, and we are battling to beat last year’s sales to remain positive on the sales chart,” said Maruti Suzuki executive director for (marketing & sales) RS Kalsi.Manufacturers are hesitant to rollback the discounts, as they see the industry losing steam despite showing some pick up last year. The top two carmakers, Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai Motor registered single-digit growth in February owing to the lacklustre demand.  “The intensified competition has forced manufacturers to maximise the discounts. It’s a virtual situation in auto industry outlining survival of the fittest. Except for the new nameplates that command some value proposition, most of the cars are going with discount benefits to increase sales in the fag end of the fiscal,” Amit Kaushik, Principal Analyst for Auto at IHS Automotive said. – – -OthersRs 30,000 (free insurance)Total Discount Chevrolet Sail hatchback Cash discount – Maruti Ritz –   Rs 41,000 – – Loyalty bonus Others Rs 20,000 – – Rs 75,000 Total Discount Rs 6 lakhlast_img read more

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Google just laid out a timeline to get rid of Adobe Flash from its display advertising services.From January 2, 2017 ads in the Flash format will not run on across Google Display Network and DoubleClick. Flash will be phased out as early as June 30, 2016, from which time it will not be possible to upload display ads built in the format.Adobe Flash is a piece of software used to create audio and video animations, games, and applications. Until recently, up to 90% of rich media ads on desktop use Flash, according to Sizmek.Google is one of the biggest display advertising players online. Its display advertising revenue in 2015 reached $3.52 billion, which makes up 13% of its total ad revenue. In the US, it is second only to Facebook when it comes to the share of display advertising spend, according to eMarketer.But Google has been moving towards switching out Adobe Flash for HTML5 — a “type of code that describes web pages” — for display ads in recent years. Last September, for example,Google’s Chrome browser began blocking Adobe Flash ads.Flash has been criticized by developers for its “critical vulnerabilities” which have made it bug-ridden, the Verge reported. However Adobe did release an update to fix these bugs.Aside from Google, Firefox has also blocked Flash over security concernsfollowing several instances of vulnerabilities in the software being compromised by hackers. Amazon has also banned Flash ads from appearing on its platform, and Apple has never supported Flash on the iPhone.Adobe itself seems prepared for the end of Flash. It killed off Flash Professional (the tool for making Flash animations) in December, ArsTechnica reported. The new Adobe Animate CC program allows users to develop HTML5 content. However it is still possible to create Flash files in the software, so the format is by no means dead yet.In a symbolically significant move, Adobe killed its Flash Twitter account on Monday: This account is no longer active.
