Do you know?

I thought it was a James Bond… 007 Movie! If not, it could be an energy drink from Switzerland… or even a stand for rare fruit, in Cali… Nope, its New Teen Buzzword and a very Dangerous Trend!

YOLA

You may not know it, but right now, you are existing in a state of YOLO. Yes, like its forbearers TGIF and LOL, the acronym, along with its devil-may-care attitude, is earning a permanent place in our lexicon and our lives — for better or for worse.

YOLO, or “You only live once,” is sort of teen interjection for “Carpe Diem.” Only it’s short on the noble idea of living life to its fullest — and more focused on brash decisions and their consequences. YOLOUrban Dictionary… Also one of the most annoying abbreviations ever!

Twitter, Facebook, Hackers, Crackers-n-Jackers… oh MY!!

By  on Aug 7, 2009 in Online Security Authority

With yesterdays major HACKs… Twitter, Facebook and the online world we’re all too aware of each of our own, vulnerabilities!!

Take my advice with a grain of salt!!

Because the opening a hacker needs to access everything they need know to steal our ID’s, to stalk and groom your children, to use your credit cards or banking accounts illegally for online purchases and ship those products to anywhere in the world… is a million times smaller than a grain of salt!

Read these 4 stories, as Bloomberg reported on it, Twitter and Facebook Recover From Attacks… Hacking: Where You’re Vulnerable, How to Prevent It | Hackers Say They Stoke 1 Million Apple IDs | How Hackers Attack: Schools, Mom & Pops Vulnerable | Yahoo Sued After Disclosure User Names, Passwords Stolen

My, oh my, it seems like there’s just no letting up for some people! Yes, as much as we love technology and all the wonders it keeps showing us, it can also be used to rain on people’s parades much less mar our happy existence. Facebook, Twitter even Instagram have been seen as “war zones” for heated exchanges and nasty posts. Not that it’s doing that to mine, in fact, now that it’s apparent that there are just some people in this world who simply do not have anything better to do, I still say , “Thank you,” but you can hack away all you want but mind you… it’s a fairly small techie world as well.

On the subject of passwords:

• Choose one that uses a variety of letters, figures, symbols and cases. Try putting your hands on the keyboard and just typing randomly—a gibberish password can be very secure.

• Use similar-looking substitutions to create alternatives for words that you remember easily. For example, the number zero can replace the letter “O” and the dollar sign can replace the letter “S.”

• Phonetic replacements are also a good idea (e.g., “Luv2Laf” for “Love to Laugh”).

• Avoid including personal info, words or acronyms that can be found in the dictionary, phrases that can be tied back to you, sequential numbers and repeating characters.

Approximately 30 million people are entrapped in some form of slavery, according to Not For Sale. Despite the fact that The International Day for the Remembrance of Slave Trade and its Abolition is August 23, it feels like only a partial victory. In Thailand, India, Latin America, The Netherlands, and Romania people are still being kidnapped and forced into the sex industry.

Spectators never see the whip being cracked, the unstoppable tears, or the constant tension both slave and master have with one another, but the truth is only half the reality.


Together, with a collective shout,
we can end child trafficking and exploitation

Unfortunately, as long as there are buyers in the market, the slave trade will stay alive. With the power of education, resources given by non-profits and assistance from the government, people can reverse this. “We’re seeing improvements and progress,” told Henry. A day will come when the word slave will be as extinct as the dinosaurs. This is a fantastic article, and we all need to understand and try and make a difference… we NEVER know who’s daughter, we might be saving!!!
