Latest cyberattack victim: Reputation.com


They notified me via email:
 
We are reaching out to let you know that Reputation.com recently identified, interrupted and swiftly shut down an external attack on our secure network.  Our network security personnel detected this breach shortly after it began, and took immediate steps to stop the attack before it could be completed.
 
At Reputation.com, transparency and openness are part of our culture.  That’s why, although the extent of the breach and the limited kind of information accessed during this attack did not legally obligate us to provide notice to our users, we nevertheless felt it was important to let you know that this event occurred.   
 
It appears that of all the locations in the world where our affected users reside, only the jurisdiction of North Dakota requires us to disclose information about this incident to its residents.  However, out of an abundance of caution and due to our strong interest in transparency, we are notifying affected users, regardless of location.
 
Following the attack, our engineering and security team immediately conducted an exhaustive investigation, working closely with independent security experts to determine what information may have been accessed.  We are also implementing additional security measures, beyond the high level of security that is already in place, to ensure your continued protection.
 
To give you some assurance, we want to be clear what was NOT accessed:
  • Financial information, such as credit card numbers or bank account information – which we do not store on our systems
  • Social Security Numbers and drivers license numbers, which we do not ask for or require our users to provide (so you likely did not volunteer this information)
  • Your account details, including why you retained our services
  • Communication between you and our team
  • Any details about the services we provided to you
 
The personal information that was accessed included:
  • Names
  • Email and physical addresses
  • In some instances, phone numbers, dates of birth, and occupational information
 
Additionally, a list of highly encrypted (“salted” and “hashed”) user passwords for a small minority of our users was accessed.  Although it was highly unlikely that these passwords could ever be decrypted, we immediately changed the password of every user to prevent any possible unauthorized account access.
 
Based on the type of information accessed, we do not believe it’s likely that you will experience any future issues as a result of this incident.  However, out of an abundance of caution, we are offering free credit monitoring for a year to those affected clients who request it within the next 30 days.
 
Security and your privacy remain our absolute first priority.  Please do not reply to this email.  We have established a confidential assistance line... blah blah blah

No great damage, I reckon...

Bees Corn Syrup Glyphosate Monsanto

Corn Syrup #1 Killer ::: A team of entomologists from the University of Illinois has found a possible link between the practice of feeding commercial honeybees high-fructose corn syrup and the collapse of honeybee colonies... Read more »

Glyphosphate Is #2 on the list ::: According to a new peer-reviewed report from the scientific journal Entropy “glyphosate”, the main ingredient in Roundup, has been found in food.

Not far behind Corn Syrup, as a cold-blooded as killers can be is Glyphosate, which sources say may be “the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment” and that the “negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.” The residues of Roundup that are appearing in food enhance the “damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins.” This relationship is linked to a range of health problems and diseases, such as Parkinson’s, infertility, autism and cancer.

Google Loves You And Has A Wonderful Plan For Your Death


Xiaxue Deserves Respect

newnation ::: "Xiaxue is the first and best blogger in Singapore," writes a Xiaxue fan explains why no one is allowed to criticise Ms. Wendy Cheng.

Wendy! You have much to be proud of and thankful for! Readers, I started reading Wendy's blog when she was "just a kid!" The following is from Asia One: "According to Ms Tan, the analytics reveal that Cheng's blog - www.xiaxue.blogspot.com - can draw up to 40,000 views a day.

"I can say that she is the most popular blogger in Singapore right now," says Ms Tan. And that means Cheng can command at least $3,500...

Supportive Cloud Geek

Do not let the title of this post throw you! I've been performing a variety of little blogging experiments. I can do this since losing all fear of things like PR and Alexa and all the nonsense!

I found a variety of interesting things on the information highway, and like it or not, I am going to share them with YOU, dear reader! Nya-ah-ah!

If you are in the public eye, there's always a 'buzz' around you... even the most private celebrities are targeted. Just look at the Weekly World News, US, People, etc.!   The Huffington Post published a neat little piece about Karl Lagerfeld, a man who carefully constructs his image, which is why many aspects of his life remain a mystery to the public -- hey, we rarely see him without his signature sunglasses. But now, it looks like the Kaiser is shedding another layer of secrets: At last, Karl has revealed his true age.

If you could ask Karl Lagerfeld one question, what would it be?

The New York Times reports that Bill Clinton stole the show at Friday morning’s "Creativity Conference" sponsored by TIME, Microsoft and the Motion Picture Association of America...

George Jones (RIP) was set to play his final show in Nashville TN  Nov. 22 at Bridgestone Arena... The Tennesean reports that Rolling Stone Keith Richards planned to attend Jones' farewell concert. The Old Stone is now a comic-book hero!

Mark Zuckerberg’s New Political Group Spending Big on Ads Supporting Keystone XL and Oil Drilling

Josh Israel and Judd Legum, News Report: Mark Zuckerberg’s new political group, which bills itself as a bipartisan entity dedicated to passing immigration reform, has spent considerable resources on ads advocating a host of anti-environmental causes—including drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and constructing the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. The umbrella group, co-founded by Facebook’s Zuckerberg, NationBuilder’s co-founder Joe Green, LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman, Dropbox’s Drew Houston, and others in the tech industry, is called FWD.US.

Red Cross’ China Scandal – This Time About Sex

While Chinese people still remember Red Cross China's corruption scandal during the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, a new scandal has exposed, this time it also involves Guo Meimei, a then “manager at China Red Cross”, showed off her fancy sports cars and luxury handbags on Sina Weibo in 2011. This time it involves a sex tape showing someone who looks like Guo having sex with a few high-ranking China Red Cross officials. More from Offbeat China.

Whatever your side of the argument is, understand that American freedom died on 911. And then a few years later along came the ‘Great Recession’ that put us all in a box, some of us now poor or near-poor, others homeless, everyone struggling and slithering like glass eels in a fisherman’s trap.

Liberate Vermont

Dear Friends of Vermont,
 
They’re back.
 
Vermonters First, the millionaire-funded Super PAC who attempted to distort Vermont’s election last fall, just sent out a mail piece attacking our legislators. The 2014 elections are 19 months away, but the attack ads have already started.

Will you chip in $5 right now to help us fight back?
 
This shadowy Super PAC is so secretive that they even refused to provide a list of the legislators they were targeting. That’s because they’re not interested in having a real conversation about policy.
 
When you have deep pockets, you can afford to do that.
 
In Vermont, good politics is about putting forth a positive vision. But a Super PAC like Vermonters First has no vision. They just want to prevent our legislature from taking Vermont forward.  And they’ll say anything to get what they want.
 
This isn’t how we should make our policy decisions here in Vermont.  Don’t allow big money to drown out sensible debate.
 
Please, will you chip in $5 right now to help us fight back?


Thank you for your support, 
Julia

Yuna April 2013

Long before Yuna, there was a wonderful musically-gifted hijab-wearing HipHop Princess named Lawanna (aka Luwanna)... a Muslima who was cool before Muslims were "cool" in certain circles.

When I find the disc, buried somewhere in my 'house stuff,' I'll post a bunch of original Lawanna photos and the "Yuna copies" of the look, poses and facial expressions so you can see where the inspiration is really coming from! [The Vagabonds Proj] Obviously, some of the pictures and a few of Lawanna's tunes  somehow made it onto the internet years ago, most likely in a forum, where they were downloaded by the Yuna PR machine.

Who Do You Trust?

You all know there is a difference between, say, CNN and Fox. They report from opposite sides of the political spectrum. You've heard it for years that you can no longer trust "mainstream media" and now that line of thought applies to "the new media" which includes much of which you encounter on line.

Case in point:


Turns out the old star isn't broke, and isn't homeless!

Recently I have noticed sites that I once trusted employing the technique of a "luring" headline to draw me to the page, only to find out (if one reads that far) that the story isn't quite true. I just happened to bump into this one this morning. Shame on HuffPo and all of the other once reputable sources! At least on twitter and 4chan, the reader understands that engagement does not guarantee truth. The discerning reader must discren! But when a site people have relied on for quality (or at least accurate) reporting starts cranking out "bait" headlines...

Tamerlan Tsarnaev's Appointment With Destiny

Tamerlan.

Naming a child Tamerlan is like naming a child Adolf Hitler.

What?

Tamerlan* was a kick-ass warlord in his day. 17-million people lost their lives (about 5% of the earth's peoples in the late 1300's) at Tamerlan's hands. He was quite the conqueror, and had no qualms about killing the entire population of any city that resisted him. Next to Tamerlan, Hitler was a minor-league player.

* (born April 8, 1336 in Kech near Chakhrisabz in present-day Uzbekistan; died February 18, 1405 at Otrar in present-day Kazakhstan). More »

The Blog Has Lost It's Way

I'm not sure what's going on here. But I know things are not like they should be. I'm more convinced than ever that some sort of 'blog cap' exists. I've witnessed the Alexa numbers here going wacky. The blog seems to be basking in the glow of Dawn Yang. I might as well do a total redesign with dear Dawn as a background image. So for the time being I'm backing off, zooming out a little here to get what I hope will be a broader picture of whatever this metamorphosis is. For now, my serious writings will appear on my mobile blog.

Twitter #music ::: is this really necessary?

Like it or not, need it or not, want it or not, twitter has hung out a "music" shingle. You can read about it here on the twitter blog.

twitter isn't shy about sharing celebrity tweets praising the "music" - my question is (and I don't have time to bother searching right now) what celebs DON'T like it and have tweeted so...

I've shared plenty of music via twitter and I am wondering what YOU think of this! Comments and Facebook comments are open!

Arguments ::: Newspapers Vs. Internet


Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Alexa Number

Is the Alexa score (and for that matter, the Google PR number) still relevant to bloggers today? I do not believe so. I am convinced there has been a cap imposed on several blogspot blogs. I am also convinced that however this cap is implemented, it is affecting the Alexa and PR numbers. Period!

You may have read this: "While Alexa rank doesn’t directly measure or analyze content, a site that frequently posts quality content will most likely have a better ranking because they’ve provided more opportunities for people to return to their site." Hmmmm. But if there is a cap, aren't all bets off?

Case Study: Unintentionally, I have gone beyond specs #2 and #4, *important* principles I discovered outlined in an old blog post for getting a "better" Alexa score:

6 Steps To A lower Alexa Rank

Step 1: Download & Install Alexa Toolbar- This is the one bit of advice I have always had misgivings about, hence I never did this and probably never will.

Step 2: Content - Mine has been kick-ass for all the right reasons. Moreso than in th epast when my Alexa ranking was better. Go figure!

Step 3: Guest Blogging - Not in 2013!

Step 4: Commenting - Make sure you are actively commenting on other people sites. I think that since January I have commented much more than ever before - certainly more than I have since I started my first blog in 2003!

Step 5: Writing Reviews - You can also achieve a better ranking by writing reviews on blogs you like. Never bothered with this one, and most likely never will.

Step 6: Engage - Make sure to engage with people who care about the Alexa Ranking. Honestly, I haven't ever done this and unless I suddenly end up with too much time on my hands, probably never will.

I've done even better in meeting criteria outlined in this blog article, meeting or exceeding the bar in tips # 2-4-5-6-7...

Now it's YOUR TURN! What is your take on or story about Alexa? Feel free to share it here in my comments or use the handy-dandy facebook commenting system!

Have you used the Alexa Toolbar? If so what are your thoughts about it?

4th Annual “Battle of the Bands” to Kick Off SPAC 2013 Season

Live Competition Scheduled for Friday, May 24 @ 7 p.m.

Local Bands Invited to Submit YouTube Auditions by May 2

Direct from the press release!

Saratoga Springs, NY (April 15, 2013) – Rising rock stars in the Capital Region and beyond will have the opportunity to showcase their talents and compete for valuable prize packages on Friday, May 24 at 7 P.M. at Saratoga Performing Arts Center’s Fourth Annual Battle of the Bands, presented by WEQX and The Recording Company. One of the region’s most popular music competitions, this year’s event will feature two winners: a “judge’s choice” and “audience favorite.” Interested bands have until May 2 to submit online entry forms and YouTube video auditions of original music at spac.org; ten finalists will be chosen to compete at the May 24th event at the Spa Little Theatre.

“The Capital Region is fortunate to have an abundance of innovative, talented musicians and bands which we are proud to showcase each year at SPAC’s Battle of the Bands competition,” said Marcia J. White, SPAC’s President & Executive Director. “Like last year, we anticipate that thousands will participate in this event in some way, either as contestants, online voters, or audience members. It will be a great, high-energy kick-off to our season.”

New this year, two winners will be selected at the live competition; one by the judges and the other by the audience. The judges’ selection will win 25 hours of studio recording time at The Recording Company, airplay on northeast radio station WEQX and custom t-shirts and merchandise from Saratoga Statement. The audience favorite will have the opportunity to perform live at a SPAC event.

The format of SPAC’s Battle of the Bands is unique in that it allows the public to participate in the audition process. From May 3 – 8, the public will have the opportunity to view audition videos and vote for their favorite band. The band receiving the most public votes receives one of the 10 finalist spots; the remaining nine finalists are chosen by a selection committee.

The top finishers of last year’s Battle of the Bands were ten-piece party band CRUSH, which took first place, followed by rock, alternative group VONTUS and the eclectic four-piece band, The Dependents.

“For the artists, Battle of the Bands represents an opportunity to stand on the same stage where music legends have performed. We are looking forward to seeing who will fill those shoes," White concluded.

THE SCHEDULE (After the Jump)

Blog Fatigue

No, I'm not suffering from it. But I know YOU certainly must be. There's such a glut of either ridiculous or ridiculously outdated "advice" out there directed toward bloggers and their blogs, it makes me wonder why anyone bothers rehashing the same old tired crap we've read over and over again for years. If you are a blogger, just blog! Do your own thing! Forget about Google and all the SEO and "blogging secrets." Be original 99% of the time: stay away from anything that may be copyright protected. Create and Innovate! Just type your stuff and proof it and hit "publish." If your blog is going to be popular, so shall it be. Forcing it down people's throats won't help.

Having typed that, be advised I am conducting a few "traffic attraction" experiments, which should be interesting! If you notice anything odd appearing on this humble weblog, just say to yourself "it's an experiment."

By the way, if you are worried about visuals for your blog, try FreeFoto.com or Foter.com - no royalties to pay, no copyrights (theoretically) to worry about infringing on.

The weekend for me proved to be very analog - I hardly had time for any online activities, and when I did, they were brief. I did notice Hoopscritic.com founder Brian Geltzeiler tweeted Sunday that fired Rutgers coach Mike Rice was coaching hoop for 7th grade girls. Sometimes you just gotta laugh at life and at the way things turn out!

As you see, nothing uploaded here over the weekend as I was busy in the City - I did manage to post a couple items to my mobile blog, but didn't arrive back in Albany until almost 11pm Sunday night.

Dawn Yang Nation

Scratching my head, I look at the blog stats and wonder. Why? Why are posts that mention an obscure blogger constantly outdrawing much more enlightening, opinionated and lively fare? Looking things over more carefully, it becomes apparent: there are certain people we love to hate. Starting with her arch-enemy Xiaxue at the top of the list, closely followed by the woman Dawn Yang aka Yeo cloned herself after, Arissa Luna aka Cheo, there are a long list of people (99.9% women) who can't stand Dawn Yang. There is one IP address I traced back to a female blogger in Malaysia would visited various Dawn Yang posts on this blog over 300 times spaced out over a 12-hour timespan! Incredible jealousy? Fascination? You tell me!

2 Easy Ways to Make Your PC Run Like New

(1) Correct all registry errors - Google up some delicious FREE software - there are many great programs out there - steer clear of any that you need a "downloader" to access, as those darned downloaders are a virtual doorway for all sorts of malware, spyware and other irritants,

(2) Get a FREE program to eliminate viruses and spyware - I use Avast free home edition as well as the free Malwarebytes and Super Anti-Spyware.

5 Things Every Blogger Must do NOW

Bloggers need to take these important steps right now:

(1) Remove all "Do Follow" links immediately

(2) Do not write or accept any "guest posts" - "Guru" bloggers propagated it as one of the best methods for free SEO. Google got wind of that notion. Some blogs that run guest posts went from PR5 to PR0 overnight!

(3) Do not pay any attention to anything you see entitled "Are Blogs On The Wane?" or any similar headline. They are not. Some gurus told bloggers that this is an "attention grabbing" headline "sure to raise your rank on search engines." It will do the opposite! (And don't be surprised if some browsers display a 'this site may harm your computer' warning!)

(4) Establish a PODCAST - but ONLY if your blog is niche enough: if not, get together with other bloggers who cover topics similar to the ones you do and collaborate on creating a podcast. This is one area I still have not venture into, despite actually preparing a podcast which I never uploaded. Like many other things, Podcasting is NOT for everyone, and there's no need to feel "left out" if you don't make or participate in one!  (And remember, establish an output schedule before releasing your first podcast, and STICK to that schedule for a minimum of six months.)

(5) Avoid Google Penalties in 2013

I'm pulling back on previous advice and policy regarding "guest blogging." For the present time, it is best to avoid both accepting guest posts and submitting them to other blogs. If the situation changes, I will write about it, along with any cautions or new guidelines for the practice.

Remember, anytime you notice the "blog gurus" all beating their chests about something at about the same time, DON'T DO IT! For example, if they say (as they did) that all blogs should be do-follow and they sell pdfs and host how-to videos on how-to-do-it, walk away!

I discovered that one of the more recent ploys, "minimalizing your blog so it has a clean inviting look" was designed to discourage bloggers from running ads on their blogs. "Why would they do that." you say? Because that's more ads THEY can run - on blogs that took the advice to heart, blog adverts trended downward by nearly 66% over the last several months, yet, looking at a sample of 12 gurus who promoted the idea, their own advertising efforts have nearly doubled, and a few of them actually are displaying more ads now than when they wrote about minimalizing!

Facebook phone

2 years ago, before Facebook alieniated so many users by making changes no one wanted, this wouldn't have been a half bad idea. I know that a facebook sim card would have been a game-changer for The Social network - and many others - if they had rolled that out, the whole mobile phone landscape would look a lot different today. Everywhere except in North America, it is common to have 2 or 3 simcard cellphones. You can have 3 numbers with three different carriers if you like. All on a single phone! A "home" number, a business phone and a personal hotline! A facebook sim would have been HUGE - but d'oh, no go!

 The New York Times ::: "Cellphones have long been Facebook’s Achilles’ heel. With its users flocking to mobile phones by the millions — and many of its newest users never accessing the services on computers at all — the company has struggled to catch up to them."

 They ain't gonna catch up with this. It could be the first analog nail in fb's digital coffin.

Forbes ::: "from what we saw at the “Home on Android” event at Facebook’s headquarters on Thursday, Facebook still has a ways to go before Home becomes an interface." Granted, Androids are popular, but you're locking out most of the other phones around. Having typed that, Fortune believes there's a lesson or two for Applw in the fb phone! Really? I'm not so sure. What do YOU think about that?

Michelle Obama: Single Mom!

What WAS she thinking?


During an interview aired on Burlington, VT CBS affiliate WCAX  Channel 3, Michelle Obama referred to herself as a “busy, single mother” before realizing her mistake and correcting herself.


In her best Joe Biden moment, the ultimate Freudian slip! Somewhat reminiscent of POTUS's "muslim faith" gaffe on TV:https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

You've probably heard the term Freudian slip: it also labeled parapraxis. It is an error in speech, memory, or physical action that is interpreted as occurring due to the interference of some unconscious ("dynamically repressed") subdued wish, conflict, or train of thought guided by the super-ego and the rules of correct behaviour. They reveal a "source outside the speech". The concept is thus part of classical psychoanalysis.

Slips of the tongue and the pen are the classical parapraxes, but psychoanalytic theory also embraces such phenomena as misreadings, mishearings, temporary forgettings, and the mislaying and losing of objects. (Like one's mind?)

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be bloggers!

Totally old hat, hopelessly dated, I couldn't resist linking to this "news" from the past!

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be bloggers appeared in 2005 as an NBC News article. The only merit to reading the article today (2013) is the link to The Bobs.

The Bobs website, www.thebobs.com, lists and describes all of this year's finalists. Internet users around the world will have until May 7 to choose their favorites for the Users' Choice Award in each of the 34 categories.

The Bobs' finalists are punctuated with bloggers and activists from around the world who demonstrate dedication to their causes - often at great risk to themselves. Some nominees are individuals and groups taking a stand for more democracy, human rights and freedom of expression while others work simply to improve other people's lives.

The contests' other prize, the Jury Award, will be decided by The Bobs jury members during a meeting on May 4-5 in Berlin. All The Bobs winners will be announced on May 7 and winners of the Jury Awards will be invited to Bonn to receive their prizes at a ceremony on June 18 as part of the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum.
