AT&T’s Investor Day 5G takeaways


AT&T hosted a two-and-a-half-hour online analyst and investor meeting on Friday where the company outlined its overall strategy for exiting the media industry and doubling its sales of 5G and fiber connections.

During the event, the company outlined some of its financial and business expectations for 2022 and 2023, and several company officials discussed exactly how AT&T plans to achieve its goals.

Perhaps the main plank of AT&T’s strategy is to shut down its copper DSL network and expand fiber to about 30 million locations over the next few years. “Wherever fiber goes, wireless follows,” boasted Jeff McElfresh, CEO of AT&T Communications.

That said, AT&T has offered some new insight into its maturing 5G strategy. Here are four 5G takeaways from AT&T’s event:

1. AT&T’s midband 5G configuration follows that of Verizon and T-Mobile.

AT&T executives said the company plans to cover 70 million people with midband 5G connections by the end of this year. By the end of 2023, AT&T said it will increase that number to 200 million people. AT&T said it plans to start rolling out 80 MHz of midstream spectrum starting this year and will expand it to 120 MHz by the end of 2023.

AT&T spent a total of $36 billion in two recent FCC spectrum auctions to acquire its midband licenses. Midband spectrum is critical for 5G because it can support fast connections along large geographic coverage areas. Additionally, the amount of midband spectrum that operators deploy is also critical – more spectrum directly equates to faster speeds and additional network capacity.

AT&T said its capital investments would total $24 billion in 2022, of which $5 billion would be for 5G spectrum deployment. The company said it expects to spend roughly the same on capital investments in 2023.

But it’s now clear that AT&T lags its rivals in the midfield. For example, Verizon recently said it plans to cover 175 million people with around 60 MHz of median spectrum by the end of this year. By the end of 2023, it plans to expand that to 160 MHz of spectrum. By 2024, Verizon plans to cover 250 million people with midband 5G.

As for T-Mobile, the company already covers about 210 million people with 100 MHz of median spectrum and plans to increase those numbers to 300 million people and 200 MHz by 2023.

2. AT&T didn’t mention mmWave 5G.

AT&T officials didn’t once mention the high-bandwidth, millimeter-wave (mmWave) flavor of 5G during its event.

However, that’s not necessarily a surprise given that Apple recently released a new iPhone that doesn’t support mmWave 5G at all. Separately, T-Mobile recently updated its “layered cake” view of the 5G spectrum to remove the focus on mmWave.

In the US, Verizon remains the only carrier to forcibly deploy mmWave. The company ended 2021 with around 30,000 mmWave transmission sites and promised to increase that number in the months and years to come.

“We see millimeter waves as a differentiator,” Kyle Malady, CTO of Verizon, said at his company’s recent analyst day. He said about 30% of Verizon’s customer base has an mmWave-enabled device, and about 10% of the carrier’s network traffic now goes through mmWave in locations where it’s available.

3. AT&T remains indifferent to FWA.

Although AT&T now orders roughly the same amount of low-band and mid-band spectrum as Verizon, the company still has no plans to embark on a major deployment of fixed wireless access (FWA) technology.

“We’re not opposed to fixed wireless,” said AT&T CEO John Stankey. Indeed, AT&T has more than 500,000 fixed wireless customers, according to FierceWireless, of which about 130,000 are classified as business users.

“The curve is moving away from the scalability of wireless,” Stankey said, explaining that the impressive increase in home broadband data traffic indicates that fiber, not wireless, can meet demand.

“I’m betting on the longer term,” he said. “Nothing goes above fiber.”

This view contrasts with the strategies of Verizon and T-Mobile. Verizon expects to register a total of 4-5 million FWA customers by 2025; T-Mobile hopes to gain 7-8 million FWA customers over roughly the same period.

4. AT&T’s IoT business remains attractive.

AT&T was an early mover in the Internet of Things (IoT) space and the company continues to boast market traction. Rasesh Patel, EVP and Chief Product and Platform Officer at AT&T, put a value of $1.3 billion on the company’s IoT business, noting that it is growing 18% year-over-year . By the end of 2021, AT&T had 95 million IoT devices on its network.

AT&T’s IoT successes are most evident in the automotive sector. The company has 50 million cars in the United States on its network, which AT&T says accounts for 80% of the market.

And Patel said the auto industry was going through a “dramatic shift” towards electric and autonomous vehicles, which he said would lead to a 40-fold increase in vehicle connectivity consumption.

He said AT&T recently signed new long-term connectivity agreements with GM, Ford, Nissian and Tesla.

Additionally, he said AT&T hopes to replicate the approach it took in the automotive industry — which included hiring a dedicated sales force — in other industry verticals, by particularly manufacturing and health. He said the company would do this through technologies such as edge computing and private wireless networks.

Meta cuts some of the benefits of Facebook


Many workers were quick to complain in the comments section below the post announcing the change, according to several employees who viewed the post. Just minutes after the changes were announced, employees asked whether the company planned to compensate them in new ways and whether Meta had undertaken an employee survey to assess the impact of the changes on staff.

Meta executives, who have tried to crack down on war-related disinformation in Ukraine and are facing an outright ban on Facebook and Instagram in Russia, seem to have little patience for questions.

In a tone that several employees described as combative, Meta chief technology officer Andrew Bosworth confidently defended some of the changes and chafed at the perceived sense of entitlement displayed in the comments, according to employees who saw thread. Mike Schroepfer, the outgoing chief technology officer, also wrote in the comments in support of the changes.

Another employee who worked on the company’s catering team pushed back even more vigorously, according to two people who saw the post.

“I can honestly say that when our peers fill three to ten boxes of steak to take away to take home, no one cares about our culture,” the employee said, pushing back against other people’s claims that the changes would be detrimental to Meta. workplace culture. “A decision has been made to try to reduce some of the abuse while eliminating six million takeout boxes.”

It appeared that many employees agreed. At noon on Friday, the employee’s post was the most popular comment in the thread, with hundreds of workers expressing their support.

The shutdown of laundry and dry cleaning service for employees at Meta’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., ends a famous — albeit unusual — benefit. The laundry service, which was operated by a third party, offered free pickup and drop-off on campus and aimed to “make people’s lives easier,” according to a 2020 interview with a Facebook spokeswoman.

An employee, when contacted to comment on the changes, texted back: “I can’t talk, do laundry.”

Ukraine’s envoy to Japan says Putin may be willing to use nuclear weapons


Highlights of the Russian-Ukrainian War:

The war between Russia and Ukraine has entered the 16th day, with Kiev saying Russian forces have attacked major cities in the country – including Dnipro and Lutsk – killing people in explosions and airstrikes. New satellite images also show that the 40-mile-long Russian convoy near Kiev has been widely dispersed as the fight for the capital continues. Meanwhile, around 100,000 people have been evacuated through humanitarian corridors in several regions of Ukraine over the past two days, President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Thursday.

The European Union will not impose sanctions on Russian gas or oil, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a video posted on his Facebook page on Friday, amid a summit of European leaders in France. Meta-platforms will allow Facebook and Instagram users in certain countries to call for violence against Russians and Russian soldiers amid the invasion of Ukraine, according to internal emails seen by Reuters on Thursday, as part of a temporary change to its hate speech policy. The social media company is also temporarily allowing certain posts calling for the death of Russian President Vladimir Putin or Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, according to internal emails to its content moderators.

A Ukrainian company made replicas of medieval armour; now he makes spike barriers to stop russian vehicles

Until a few weeks ago, Art of Steel in western Ukraine made silver chainmail, helmets and other armor for reenactments and shows. But as Ukrainians search for a way to defend their cities against Russian invasion, the company’s mission has become much more serious.

Blacksmiths with Art of Steel, which has been producing medieval sporting armor since 2009, now use their materials to create caltrops – 6-inch pointed spikes that date back to ancient wars. The devices are chained up and placed at checkpoints around Rivne, a town about 210 miles west of Kiev. The goal, according to a company official, is to use the devices to slow down or prevent Russian vehicles from entering Rivne. The city is home to one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants, which some fear is a Russian target.

Over the past two weeks, the store has produced hundreds of caltrops, said the company official, who spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern for his safety.

“Ukrainians [are] united in this war,” he told the Washington Post. “Absolutely everyone is trying to help at the fight scene and in the back. Therefore, all materials are used in one way or another.

Art of Steel joins a national effort to produce weapons that can be used against Russian forces, which invaded the country on February 24. People across Ukraine fill empty bottles with materials to make molotov cocktails. Other volunteers sewed cloth blankets to help camouflage Ukrainian military equipment.

Within days of the invasion, Art of Steel had welded dozens of metal devices, also known as “hedgehogs.”

“Soon there will be many more,” the organization wrote on its Facebook page.

The efforts are reminiscent of 1940s scrap metal drives and other initiatives to get Americans to contribute during World War II, said Mark Cancian, senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

“There’s a bit of that flavor of involving the whole population,” Cancian said.

A blacksmith from Art of Steel came up with the idea of ​​placing caltrops at line barriers and checkpoints and offered to start manufacturing the devices, the organization’s official said. Videos on the store’s Facebook page show the devices, which span between four and six inches, chained to chains.

Spikes are now at every checkpoint in Rivne, according to Art of Steel. Sharp metal can puncture tires.

“With proper use, it will help stop [a] column of vehicles or at least delay them for a while,” the official said.

Much larger and heavier versions of the barriers were seen lining the streets of Kiev to prevent Russian tanks from moving through the city, Reuters reported.

The caltrops date back to 331 BC. AD, when Alexander the Great used them against the Persians, according to Historynet. Originally just a bullet with four spikes, the devices could cause puncture wounds in humans that could lead to infection or slow death, the outlet reported.

They were also used to stop fighters on horseback, Cancian said. Today, versions of the spiked devices are still used by law enforcement to control traffic patterns or by military personnel to guard vehicle checkpoints in combat zones, he said. declared.

“I saw a few in Iraq,” said Cancian, a retired Marine Corps officer. “We had the equivalent and put it in front of a checkpoint so a vehicle couldn’t just drive through.”

They can be particularly effective if checkpoints are guarded by armed personnel, he added.

Besides caltrops, Art of Steel also manufactures body armor plates. And its blacksmiths aren’t the only ones contributing to the war effort in Rivne: all the metalworkers in town are ‘trying to help the army in one way or another’, a blacksmith told the Telegraph .

Russia’s attorney general’s office has asked to designate Meta – the parent company of Facebook and Instagram – as an “extremist organization” and to ban its activities in Russia, according to Russian media.

He also said access to Instagram should be restricted, reports the BBC.

It comes after Meta said it was making changes to its policy on violent speech, to allow people in certain countries to express violent feelings towards Russian forces, but not towards Russian civilians.

The attorney general’s office says Meta is suspected of “inciting hatred and animosity involving threats of violence.”

Access to Facebook and Twitter has been restricted or blocked in Russia since last week.

Company policy exemptions are in effect in the territories of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Hungary, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine and Estonia. According to Reuters, Meta will not temporarily delete messages sent from the territories of Poland, Russia and Ukraine calling for the death of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

Meta later admitted that he authorized calls for violence against Russian troops in view of the special military operation in Ukraine. Meta spokesman Andy Stone wrote on Twitter that the company has “temporarily made concessions for forms of political expression that would normally violate our rules, such as violent speech such as ‘death to Russian invaders’.”

“We still will not allow credible calls for violence against Russian civilians,” the Meta spokesperson added.

Op-Ed: Social Media: Countering Extremism and Disinformation in the Digital Age


Social media has revolutionized terrorism, acting as a tool to streamline communication in underground networks and make the recruitment of individuals more accessible. This has led to increased dissemination of extremist content online, facilitating radicalization. Terrorist or extremist groups can easily communicate their opinions and misinformation in an immediate and widely accessible format, sharing information with a wide global audience, while tailoring their messages to specific local audiences. As expert Dr. Maura Conway has stated, “Today’s Internet not only allows for the dissemination and consumption of ‘extremist material’ in a one-way flow from producer to consumer, but also high levels of online social interaction around this material”.

Major terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State have used social media to encourage individuals to join their campaigns in Syria and Iraq, taking advantage of a variety of platforms and formats to extend their impact. They use platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to spread disinformation and extremism, often using various tactics such as blurry logos, video content and unusual punctuation to evade counterterrorism detection within of these platforms. They were able to form teams of social media users who retweet or share propaganda to grab the attention of potential recruits and direct them to more private chat sites. ISIS’s social media strategy demonstrates the dangers of social media and its potential to fuel extremist thought and mobilize violence, with estimates that they have recruited 40,000 people from 110 countries through their online campaigns as of 2018.

In the United States, private blogs such as Infowars and Roosh V’s Return of Kings provide information and news on far-right extremism, such as the January 6 riot in the US Capitol or anti-vaccination campaigns. Online social networking sites such as 4chan and 8chan allow like-minded people to share messages and media related to extremist content and to orchestrate terrorist acts. This has created an extensive and ever-expanding online community where terrorist groups depend on social media for support of their organizations and recruitment of new members.

Social media has even become a weapon that those in power use to blast misinformation into bricked-up echo chambers to incite others to violence. Through Facebook troll accounts, Burma’s military – backed by Buddhist nationalist groups – has been spreading anti-Muslim posts, fake news and misleading photos to justify their massacre of Rohingya minorities. Burma’s military learned its tactic from the Russian government, which had divided communities across the United States through advertisements, Facebook pages and fake accounts, to influence the results of the 2016 election. The former president Donald Trump enacted the heavy handed tactics of his neighbors in December 2020, tweeting: “Big protest in DC Jan 6th. Be There, Will Be Wild” and “StopTheSteal”. Pro-Trump groups Oath Keepers and Proud Boys answered his call, mobilizing by storming the Capitol building on January 6, 2021, killing five in their wake. Unfortunately, these are just a few examples of the global wars of disinformation being waged across borders.

Disinformation warfare is accompanied by “disinformation plagues”. Misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines has spread like the virus itself, leading the World Health Organization and other United Nations organizations to call on member states to fight “the ‘COVID-19 infodemic’. According to the WHO Joint Committee declarationmisinformation has cost lives and helped unravel COVID-19 prevention policies, allowing the virus to continue to run wild.

Other devastating scourges are cyberstalking and cyberbullying, which involves online stalkers using photos, texts, recordings and videos to inject frustration, sadness, low self-esteem and anger into the victims. Many victims descended into drug addiction, academic difficulties or suicidal thoughts and even became abusers themselves, Iincubating hate to spread like a pandemic.

As global Internet access increases rapidly, social media continues to revolutionize our communication and provides us with tools to interact with people around the world. However, the borderless flow of information that social media offers us can easily threaten our security. In fact, we have seen how the line between online safety and personal safety has become blurred with the role digital communication plays in fostering radical ideologies and inciting violence. It is important to recognize the digital threats we all face and assess how certain platforms could be exploited in the future and play a role in radicalization and recruitment.

We need to focus on proactive prevention strategies that governments and online platform providers can adopt to mitigate this problem. Young people are particularly susceptible to extremist propaganda and can easily be coerced into joining organizations to feel a sense of community. Governments should support digital literacy programs through public schools and local and national youth and community organizations to educate minors about the risks of social media and how to recognize propaganda. Beyond that, they can work with social media organizations to ensure the private tech industry plays its part in protecting their users from potentially harmful content. Governments should promote the effective enforcement of applicable laws that prohibit the dissemination of terrorist or violent extremist content, even when the content is online, in accordance with their country’s laws and human rights.

However, the main ethical dilemma in advocating for increased government regulation is that social media providers are inherently concerned with freedom of expression. These platforms are designed to be a place where people can freely share their ideas because the internet is designed to be an unlimited platform that promotes open communication. We should not limit the ability of these sites to provide civil and political rights. At the same time, the identification and classification of content published as extremist must remain an important pillar of the objectives of these sites to guarantee the safety of their users. The question remains: what are the necessary restrictions on social media that also serve to further the platforms’ goal of providing robust dialogue and free communication?

This issue, among others, will be discussed at the Norris and Margery Bendetson Education for Public Inquiry and International Citizenship 2022 International Symposium on Passportless Issues, March 31-April 2, 2022. The international symposium, designed by a symposium of students Le EPIIC course through Tufts features international practitioners, scholars, public intellectuals, activists, and journalists who participate in panels and small group discussions. Junior Janya Gambhir, author of this editorial, will moderate the first panel of the symposium, titled “Social Media: Countering Extremism and Disinformation in the Digital Age”.

GGBA Member Spotlight: Gavin Escolar of The Chaga Company – San Francisco Bay Times


Mushrooms are loved around the world for both their savory, umami taste and their medicinal qualities. A rising star among these fabulous mushrooms is chaga (Inonotus obliquus), which is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants, so much so that it is being explored in cancer studies. Here, Gavin Escolar from The Chaga Company tells more about this mushroom and how it is used to fortify foods and beverages.

GGBA: How do you use chaga in your company’s products and where do you get it from? Do you grow it?

Gavin Escolar: The Chaga Company infuses the highest quality antioxidant superfood into coffee, tea, powders, tinctures, chocolates, salts and cookies.

Chaga is a superfood closely related to truffles with the highest amount of antioxidants – seven times more than acai, the highest amount of immune-boosting properties – and it tastes great!

I sustainably source my chaga from deep within the Arctic Circle in Alaska and continually test its potency to ensure we provide the highest quality chaga for everyone. I then infuse this special superfood with the finest teas, coffees, chocolates, snacks and other products. I believe chaga should be incorporated into your daily routine for health and wellness.

GGBA: Do you believe that chaga has improved your own health, and did that inspire you to start The Chaga Company?

Gavin Escolar: Chaga changed my life for the better. Chaga gave me energy, clarity and focus. Chaga also helped me with my inflammation and it made me lose 35 lbs. I was so convinced by [the health benefits of] chaga that I opened a shop in Juneau, Alaska, and stayed there for a year before returning to my hometown of San Francisco.

I started in San Francisco at the San Francisco Mushroom Fair in 2018 and grew the business to have an online presence, events, and many Farmers Markets throughout the Bay Area, from Napa in Carmel Valley.

And when the pandemic hit in 2020, it became clear that everyone needs to have chaga in their daily lives due to its high antioxidant compounds and immune-boosting properties. My business has been center stage in the wellness and nutrition scene.

GGBA: Who are some of your role models, and especially those who have helped influence your business?

Gavin Escolar: Pete Slosberg, Founder of Pete’s Wicked Ale and Advisor to SCORE SF – SBA helps me with my retail distribution, corporate direction and general priorities. I also credit my knowledge of chaga to Alaska Natives, mycologists like Lawrence Millman, Robert Rogers, and members of the Mycology Society of San Francisco.

I suggest going to workshops provided by the SBA and GGBA for their networking contacts. The people I met and the workshops I attended were essential to the growth of my small business.

GGBA: Why did you decide to join the GGBA, and how long have you been a member?

Gavin Escolar: I decided to join the GGBA to be with my community. This is my first year as a member of GGBA and I experience the community and the desire for all of us to grow and develop.

A small business like mine needs a community to meet and grow together. I find that the GGBA has a great group of people with common interests.

GGBA: How has being a member of GGBA helped your business so far?

Gavin Escolar: Being a member of the GGBA gave me confidence to talk to bigger companies for contracts and gave me exclusive resources only available to certified members. It allowed me to meet other small business owners, who are in the same boat, for collaboration.

I find the networking meetings (currently online) to be fruitful, revealing and interesting, not to mention fun! Meeting cool, like-minded people in different industries helps me and my business grow.

GGBA: Do you attend GGBA’s monthly Make Contact networking events? Have they been beneficial to you and your business, and would you recommend them to others?

Gavin Escolar: Yes, I have started looking up contacts online and I am looking forward to meeting someone. I would recommend going to networking events. A collaborative effort to help each other as a community yields better results than doing [most] things yourself.

GGBA: What other advice would you give to someone considering starting their own business?

Gavin Escolar: Get started, plan, and find a mentor who can help you through the gestation period of your business. Passion, perseverance and courage are essential to open your business with a combination of financial knowledge and focus.

There will be many obstacles and challenges, but focus, ethics, and motivation always outweigh the obstacles. Have fun and believe in yourself and the business you’ve built. You will always find a solution and an opportunity to grow and succeed.

GGBA: Is there anything else you would like to share?

Gavin Escolar: Live your dreams; courage is when you start your own business and fuel your journey with chaga along the way. You are your own master and your business will show the quality of your work and your personality. So live your business and live your life. Enjoy!

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. is the first mining company in the metaverse


Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 10, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (“SBMI” or “the Company”) announces its presence in the metaverse, allowing users to learn more about SBMI while enjoying a rich and fun immersive experience. To the best of its research, SBMI is the first mining company to be there.

“We are always looking for ways to enrich our communications with shareholders,” said A. John Carter, CEO of SBMI. “Being first in the metaverse allows us to engage with a broader demographic in a different way.”

The three worlds of SBMI can be found here:

Outdoor Voices founder Ty Haney is launching a new venture in the NFT space


It would probably be an overstatement to say that Ty Haney changed the way we work. She didn’t start a boutique fitness craze; it’s not Jane Fonda. But Outdoor Voices, the athletics company she founded in 2014, has helped popularize a fitness paradigm that has more to do with daily movements than the body-stressing athletics advertised by brands. like Nike.

Outdoor Voices created an audience with color-blocked compression leggings and all-in-one exercise dresses that could easily go from the gym to brunch. On social media, fans bragged about shopping for items in all shades and posted photos of themselves #DoingThings in scenic locations while wearing matching ensembles. They also shared their feedback on the new styles and colorways in online forums. It was a fairy tale about customer loyalty.

Although she is no longer with Outdoor Voices, Ms Haney, 33, hopes to bring her principles of community building and consumer engagement to a new sphere: the blockchain-based future of the internet known as web3. She’s betting that in the next phase of online retail, “hit things” will be the new “do things.”

His latest venture, a platform called Do your best, will allow brands to collect customer feedback in exchange for rewards such as digital collectibles (NFTs) and branded coins that can be used for bragging rights or to make purchases. These are assets, Ms. Haney said, that could potentially have lasting value, as opposed to the one-time discount codes and ephemeral perks that most companies give to loyalists.

“The idea is for brands and fans to build together, and the concept is to share value with those who create it,” Ms. Haney said in an interview.

Direct-to-consumer brands have typically relied on disparate sources to solicit feedback from their most engaged customers: Google Docs, Slack databases, DMs. Try Your Best aims to streamline that process and divert marketing dollars away from Facebook and Instagram, where Ms Haney said soaring costs have made it harder for emerging brands to grow.

So far, 10 brands have signed up for the Try Your Best pilot program, the company said, including Hill House Home, whose “nap dresses” became the pinnacle of pandemic loungewear, and Vada, a jewelry and eyewear company. But initially, the only brand on the platform will be Jogginga new brand run by Ms. Haney that sells products containing CBD and THCV.

She said Try Your Best hopes to reach “Parade’s customer, JuneShine’s customer, Glossier’s customer — those Gen Z-type millennial audiences.”

Target users are “people who buy into a brand because they like it and post it on Instagram,” said Sean Judge, general partner of Castle Island Ventures, which specializes in blockchain-related investments and has invested. $2 million in Try Your Best. — a modest figure compared to Outdoor Voices’ fundraising. “It’s a way for them to connect with other members of that community and also have a direct relationship with the brands to provide real-time feedback on new product ideas and the direction the brand should be. take.”

Ms. Haney said involving consumers in design decisions has contributed to the success of some of Outdoor Voices’ most popular products. “The way we got people to buy all the colors – 25 colors – of the exercise dress was by bringing them upstream in the process of creating the product,” she said, but “there is no There was really no centralized tool for this type of interaction.”

Casey Lewis, a trendsetter who writes about youth culture in her newsletter Substack, After schoolwas intrigued by the idea of ​​brands rethinking customer loyalty but being circumspect about the appeal of digital assets.

“Any time a brand succeeds in building a community, it’s a huge win for them. But it’s so, so hard to manufacture or force that success,” Ms. Lewis said. “The bigger question is : Do people care about NFTs, and will that be enough to engage and excite them?”

Web3 has been presented, often in vague and utopian terms, as an online ecosystem where users will wrest power from the technological behemoths that dominate the current phase of the Internet, Web 2.0.

Kevin Werbach, a professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and author of “The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust,” said that while “granting strong property rights directly to users” has the potential to change the balance of power, none of web3’s promises are guaranteed.

“There is a Web3 that is wonderful and trying to make the world a better place, but just labeling something Web3 doesn’t mean the power dynamics will magically reverse,” Professor Werbach said.

Ms. Haney is particularly interested in the integration of women in Web3. “We’re seeing a male-dominated demo on Reddit and in Discords, recounting all these opportunities,” she said. “By bringing brands that have a large female audience into crypto, that’s a really big opportunity.”

Try Your Best runs on the Avalanche blockchain, which Haney said she chose in part because its transactions use far less energy than, say, Bitcoin or Ethereum. (Even so-called “green” mining operations, however, consume significantly more energy than other financial transactions.)

Try Your Best plans to make money by collecting monthly fees from brands and potentially sharing revenue when tokens have been used to drive sales.

Mr Judge, the investor, previously worked with a range of direct-to-consumer companies and heard their constant frustration about the escalating costs of advertising to customers on Facebook and Instagram. Ms Haney “experienced these pain points first hand”, he said.

Outdoor Voices was a huge success. Ms Haney and company were the subject of glowing coverage in the new yorker which compared Outdoor Voices to Lululemon, and raised over $50 million in venture capital. He also caught the eye of Mickey Drexler, the retail legend who led transformations at Gap and J. Crew. He became chairman of the board and attracted investors to the brand.

But just before the pandemic hit the United States, Ms Haney’s successful run at Outdoor Voices came to an abrupt halt as investors questioned her leadership. A schism opened up between the young founder and Mr. Drexler, expensive store openings were delayed and a series of experienced retail executives left the company, which struggled to relocate to Austin, Australia. Texas, from New York. The internal unrest has been detailed in articles in the New York Times and BuzzFeed News.

Ms Haney remembers thinking at the time, “My life is going to be over.

But as the news cycle progressed, so did she. “It sucked but it didn’t kill me, and it gave me a lot more energy to rebuild and show that I can set a vision and execute it,” she said. “It feels good to take full responsibility.”

Ms Haney resigned from the brand amid investor uproar in February 2020, then joined the stock’s founder two months later. In January 2021, she left the company and the board to pursue projects including Try Your Best. She still retains a stake in Outdoor Voices.

Mr Judge was not concerned about Ms Haney’s tussle with Outdoor Voices investors and took it as a vote of confidence that several former company employees have since joined her at Try Your Best.

“There are challenges with every type of business, and some are more public than others,” Mr. Judge said. “I think Ty learned a tremendous amount about building a business.”

Ms Haney said her start-up comes at a time when the traditional direct-to-consumer model – which has built companies like Warby Parker, Everlane and Glossier – is “broken” after years of overreliance on social marketing.

At one point, she said, Outdoor Voices was devoting about 30% of its total funding to customer acquisition on Facebook and Instagram. She hopes Try Your Best can help brands reduce those costs.

Separately, as young people may be less willing to give away their thoughts and time for free, Try Your Best offers an answer to the question of how to repay them.

“One thing with Gen Z is that they want to be rewarded for their input and guidance,” Ms Lewis said. “This is not a generation that is ready to do things just for fun.”

Mahira Khan’s ‘Baarwan Khiladi’ Gets Social Media Response

ISLAMABAD – The sports-based web series “Baarwan Khiladi” (Twelfth Player) has received an incredible response from social media after the release of its first two episodes.
Mahira Khan’s most anticipated project has taken Pakistani social media by storm. Many viewers took to their social media accounts and applauded the brilliant start to an amazing cricket-based drama.
“MashaAllah, Congratulations Producer Sahiba. So proud of you. I just finished watching Baarwankhiladi and absolutely loved it. Just like you, I’m really bad at sports, but I really, really enjoyed it,” Twitter user Fareed expressed his appreciation.
“I watched the first episode of baarwankhiladi and it was fantastic and I have to say you are the standard bearer for good content and change.
You did this Mk and I’m so proud of you,” fellow user Sadia Jeelani praised actress-turned-producer Mahira Khan for her efforts to bring a unique story to the screen.
Many viewers praised the web series for the performances of veteran actors like Sarmad Khoosat and Fawad Khan, as well as emerging talents like Daniyal Zafar and Shahveer Jafry. “Sarmad Khoosat and Shahveer Jafry did exceptionally well,” Twitter user Meer Basit shared.
While on the other hand, some viewers didn’t seem very impressed with the storyline and expressed their feelings on the social networking website.
“I watched the first episode and I liked Sarmad’s performance a lot. He is so good and apart from that I liked some scenes of Daniyal and his scenes with Saba Jee and Kinza too. Unfortunately, it didn’t failed to attract me to him, but I will try,” Faizan wrote, sharing his mixed response on Twitter.
According to the official description of the web-series on Tapmad, Baarwan Khiladi is the story of a small-town boy, Akbar, who loves cricket and dreams of playing at the national level all his life. His passion leads him to be selected in the biggest national cricket league in the country, the Lahore Cricket League.
The sports series is directed by director Adnan Sarwar and written by Shahid Dogar.
It was produced under the Soul Fry Films banner, in collaboration with Nina Kashif. The main cast of the web-series includes Danyal Zafar, Shahveer Jafry and Kinza Hashmi.
The web series can be viewed on the online streaming platform Tapmad and the YouTube channel Tapmad TV.

Twitter Bot highlights the gender pay gap, one company at a time


Every International Women’s Day, photos of smiling women continuously appear on social media alongside testimonials from brands keen to show their support for gender equality.

This week, however, the stream was interrupted by a Twitter account that spat out data on pay gaps from businesses, schools and nonprofits.

The account, @PayGapApptargets companies in Britain, where the public has access to mountains of data on employer pay gaps and where men working full-time earned 7.9% more than women from April 2021.

Whenever a UK university or hospital promoted International Women’s Day on Twitter this week with certain hashtags or hashtags, including #IWD and #BreakTheBias, the pay gap account automatically retweeted the message with a note on the median hourly wage of women employed at the organization compared to that of men.

Francesca Lawson, a writer and social media manager in Manchester, England, created the automated account, or bot, with her partner, Ali Fensome, a software consultant.

“The bot exists to empower employees and members of the public to hold these companies accountable for their role in perpetuating inequality,” said Ms Lawson, 27. pay gap.”

Since 2018, the British government has required companies with 250 or more employees to declare the differences in pay between men and women each year. The reports are publicly available at a searchable government website.

Ms Lawson said she created the Twitter account so that the public could retrieve this information more easily. “For him to have influence, people have to be able to find him,” Ms Lawson said.

On Wednesday, the day after International Women’s Day, the pay gap account had more than 205,000 followers. Some organizations had deleted tweets that the pay gap account had highlighted, while others responded with their plans to address the pay gap.

English Heritage, a charity that runs historic sites such as Stonehenge, responded to a memo saying its female workers were paid 3.9% less than men with a connection to his report on data, as of April 2020.

“Since then, we have worked hard to reduce our pay gap and it is closing,” English heritage said on Twitter. “But no matter how small, a gap is still a gap and the charity is committed to closing it.”

The pay gap account highlights data on median hourly earnings, but UK companies are also required to provide information on gaps in average bonuses. Some companies also voluntarily provide more data and context in their reports.

Australia and Germany also ordered companies to report their pay gaps, but there was no comparable requirement for companies in the United States, where women’s annual earnings were 82, 3% of those of men in 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The gap is even wider for black and Hispanic women.

Ms Lawson said she hoped the popularity of her account would show there was a demand for more data like this. “I hope other governments will want to start mandating the reporting of this data,” she said.

The couple first created the account the weekend before International Women’s Day in 2021 and used it as a test to see what worked and what didn’t. Now they’re trying to figure out how to best use the attention the account garnered to promote other inequality-related issues. Ms Lawson said she would like to see copycat efforts.

“The more people there are doing this job,” she said, “the less places there are for companies to hide.”

Strong Compute wants to speed up your ML model training – TechCrunch

Training neural networks takes a long time, even with the fastest and most expensive accelerators on the market. It’s perhaps unsurprising, then, that a number of startups are looking to speed up the process at the software level and remove some of the current bottlenecks in the training process. For Strong Compute, a Sydney, Australia-based startup that was recently accepted into Y Combinator’s Winter ’22 class, it’s about removing those inefficiencies from the training process. By doing so, the team claims they can speed up the training process by 100 times or more.

“PyTorch is beautiful, and so is TensorFlow. These toolkits are amazing, but their simplicity — and ease of implementation — comes at the expense of inefficient things under the hood,” said CEO and Founder of Strong Compute, Ben Sand, who previously co-founded the company AR Meta (before Facebook used that name).

Although some companies focus on optimizing the models themselves, and Strong Compute also does so if requested by its customers, Sand noted that this could compromise the results. What the team is focusing on instead is all about the model. This can be a slow data pipeline or pre-computing a large number of values ​​before training begins. Sand also noted that the company has optimized some of the often-used libraries for data augmentation.

The company also recently hired Richard Pruss, a former Cisco principal engineer, to focus on removing network bottlenecks in the training pipeline, which can quickly lead to a lot of latency. But, of course, hardware can also make a big difference, which is why Strong Compute also works with its customers to run models on the right platform.

“”Strong Compute cut our basic algorithm training from thirty hours to five minutes, training hundreds of terabytes of data,” said Miles Penn, CEO of MTailor, which specializes in creating custom clothing for its customers. online.” Deep learning engineers are probably the most valuable resource on this planet, and Strong Compute has enabled ours to be 10 times more productive. Iteration and experimentation time is the most important lever for ML productivity, and we were lost without Strong Compute.

Sand says the big cloud providers don’t really have an incentive to do what his company does, given that their business model relies on people using their machines for as long as possible, with which Michael Seibel, CEO of Y Combinator , agrees. “Strong Compute is targeting a serious misalignment of incentives in cloud computing, where faster results that are valued by customers are less profitable for providers,” Seibel said.

Picture credits: Strong Compute’s Ben Sand (left) and Richard Pruss (right).

Currently, the team is still providing top-notch service to its customers, although developers shouldn’t notice much of a difference as integrating its optimizations shouldn’t really change their workflow. The promise Strong Compute makes here is that it can “10x your development cycles”. For the future, the idea is to automate the process as much as possible.

“AI companies can focus on their core customer, data and algorithm where their core IP and value is, leaving all configuration and operations to Strong Compute,” Sand said. This not only gives them the rapid iteration they need to succeed, but also ensures that their developers only focus on work that adds value to the business. Today, they spend up to two-thirds of their time on complex “ML Ops” systems administration tasks, which are largely generic in AI companies and often outside their area of ​​expertise; it doesn’t make sense for it to be in-house. »

Why sell your business online when this company will do it for you?


What happened to the garage sale? Your neighbor’s folding table gathers dust instead of torn Rubén Sierra baseball cards and pairs of old nylon sweatpants. And, of course, the city doesn’t really make it easy for you to organize any of these things, even after printing out flyers and stapling them to your favorite post. Technically you need a real permit now from the city of dallas to sell your stuff from your driveway. It’s probably easier to just post it to Facebook Marketplace and wait.

Where is it?

“Take a picture, post it and it’s sold: the truth is that kind of hides a lot of the work, doesn’t it?” says Byron Binkley, who founded Sella, a digital services company that sells your stuff online for you. “If you really want to do a good job, you have to know what you’re doing.”

You need to research pricing, says Binkley. Sure, you bought your Blu-ray player for $200 in 2009, but what’s it selling for on eBay now? You must have a detailed description of the ad. You have to be wary of the time of year (electronics sell best after Christmas, says Binkley). You need to be prepared to negotiate the prices and you should probably list it on several websites.

It’s here that Saddle The company, which launched in Portland last year and Dallas last month, acts as a middleman between you and the person who ultimately buys your stuff. You drop off your items or have them picked up for a fee at a local hub. Typically, this happens at a local Sella rep, which Binkley calls “Airbnb for Fulfillment.” Sella takes photos and measurements, does price research, and presents you with listing information and a selling plan (i.e. what is your asking price and how far are you willing to go ) to approve.

“We’re the leg work, but ultimately our customers call the shots and they’re the CEO,” Binkley says.

Once a plan is approved, Sella publishes the listing to several online resale sites, such as Facebook Marketplace, Poshmark, eBay, Mercari, Craigslist, etc. They review the influx of messages, sell the item, handle the transfer, and then send you a check.

While it sounds like a digital-age adaptation of a consignment store, that’s not what Sella is, Binkley says. You remain the owner of your belongings until they are sold and you can cancel the service at any time. Sella charges a flat processing fee instead of pocketing a commission. Fees start at $5.99 for each item, plus 20 cents per day until sold, although rates may vary based on item size, shipping and fees of the online market.

You can sell most things through Sella. But Binkley says branded items or electronics purchased within the last two years — the first item sold in Dallas through Sella was a Vitamix — sell the best. And there are some conditions. First, they don’t take anything a person can’t carry or “won’t fit in the trunk of a Prius.” So no Craigslist couch.

Second, they will not accept anything prohibited, such as firearms or car seats, on resale sites. Third, items must meet a minimum price value. This ensures that your item will sell and your return rate is worth it, Binkley says. “We say around $40 or more because that puts people in the right ballpark.”

Although, he admits, this can be nuanced. Some of the more expensive niche items, like birding binoculars, can be a tough sell. And while Sella won’t take your tired $10 H&M sweater, there will always be a market for a $20 microwave, or even a seven-pound box of Legos.

Smaller, cheaper items, as well as bulky products like chests of drawers and lacrosse sticks, are why Binkley thinks traditional garage sales will never really go away. “There’s tons of stuff that’s barely worth the time to drive it anywhere,” he says. “And so, you know, getting it out of the garage and laying it out in some way is a good way to get people to shop and browse.”

The more valuable things are likely to fetch more money online, Binkley says, but there’s something family-friendly and nostalgic about sifting through a $5 bin at your classic weekend garage sale.

Just make sure you get a permit.

How to network when the pandemic becomes rampant

In the past few weeks alone, some of the biggest tech companies (Apple, Google, Meta) have confirmed their return to office dates. Many of them have opted for a hybrid schedule for now. What does this mean for events? Nobody knows.

With some travel restrictions and local regulations still in place, along with all the fears, anxieties and social awkwardness caused by COVID-19, fully online events persist, though they have long since lost their novelty. In-person communication feels electric, until the threat of infecting an immunocompromised colleague arises. And when so many people have poured their hard-earned cash into the ideal gadgets for their work-from-home setup, it can be hard to convince them to set aside time and attend an in-person event they don’t consider essential. .

But professionals know that face-to-face connection with peers in the field is essential for innovation. It’s how co-founders meet, entrepreneurs woo VCs, and trends like Web3 and the Metaverse are set. Those connections are still important — but just as the pandemic has forever changed the way we work, so too is networking undergoing a transformation.

Even though many big tech companies are returning to the office, event organizers should still be able to efficiently host gatherings in three formats: online, hybrid, and in-person.

“There have been so many different waves of this pandemic where it seems to be constantly changing,” said David Polgar, founder of industry group All Tech is Human. Organizers can no longer rely on the innate novelty of a livestream, or the catering and schwag during an in-person conference, he said. Creating an effective event, regardless of format, comes down to “the actual content and how it can fit right into someone’s life.”

Go social in a shared Google Doc

Online events have been cool for a while. People from all over the world could participate in the conversation. Each of us could attend more events and expand our minds, with all the extra time we had. Video calling software stocks soared and live conferencing seemed like the wave of the future.

That is, until a large number of participants realize that they would rather listen to a recording of this conference after the fact at double the speed.

“The ability to hold someone’s attention is a huge, huge struggle online, because our typical use of these online tools is usually multitasking. I open a YouTube video, reply to an email and check Twitter,” Polgar said. “The main problem with online events is that attendees view them as a background rather than something front and center.”

Using Hopin helps, Polgar said. The online conferencing platform has more touchpoints for engagement than Zoom, going beyond breakout rooms and side chats. Hopin also allows conference hosts to run multiple speakers or panels at once, and this multitasking potential helps keep users engaged.

“Determining when and how to use breakout rooms or one-on-one networking, for example, are the details that can make or break an event, no matter how many attendees you have,” said Lauren Sommers, Vice President of Corporate Marketing at Hopin.

Polgar enjoys using Hopin for online events.

Polgar is also creating a Google Doc where event attendees can collaborate on note-taking — something that only works with a dedicated, pre-selected group, given the obvious opportunity for malicious actors. However, Polgar said the risk was worth it, because having a shared notes document provides an easy-to-use opportunity for non-hierarchical interaction and makes all participants feel they have a responsibility to keep an eye.

Even so, online events are limited by design. Polgar said he expects hardware that incorporates more physically interactive features, like haptic feedback, for online events (working in the metaverse, anyone?).

More than an inconvenient version of watching a YouTube video

Anyone who’s tried to facilitate a combination of online and in-person meetings knows how infuriating hybrid events can be. Virtual participants fade into the background while those gathered in person, trying to communicate via a shared Zoom screen, are often too distracted by technology to relay useful information.

The difference in experience between in-person and online attendees is the biggest hurdle of hybrid events. Online attendees should feel as included as those attending in person, which is easier said than done. Otherwise, watching a live stream of an event is little more than an impractical version of watching a YouTube video, Polgar said.

But he thinks live streaming an event is still important. Polgar recommends that organizers appoint specific people whose sole job is to provide technical support and engage with attendees online. “Live streaming needs to be less of an add-on and more treated as an equal part of the event,” Polgar said. “There must be a person or two who exploit the online part and integrate their questions.”

Nabeel Ahmed, co-founder of event company Phantom Phood, also suggests keeping online attendees to a minimum. The company, which was founded during the pandemic and brings together small groups of entrepreneurs and investors over catered dinners, has mastered the art of pandemic partying. One of Phantom Phood’s best hybrid events, Ahmed said, was with a company whose overseas CEO was unable to attend at the last minute due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. The event was a catered dinner, and a computer was placed at the head of the table so the CEO could zoom in, see the food, and talk directly to people trying it as if he were physically there. Hybrid events are even more effective, Ahmed said, if the few online participants are clearly crucial to the conversation.

“It all depends on how you control the variables: that means people coming in and out, a car honking or anything else that will be disruptive. We are very aware of testing this,” Ahmed said. “The hybrid events we’ve run have had a maximum of eight people, mostly in-person, with only two or three virtual. This is the environment in which you can still really foster connection.

Meat space, no metaverse

For special occasions, at least, the mood has changed. Many professionals are willing to meet in person to cultivate more genuine connections with their new colleagues, the investors they hope to woo, or the mentors they are especially eager to learn from. “When you really want to make an impact, when you really want to form partnerships, when you really want to showcase something new, it has to be face-to-face,” Ahmed said.

But that doesn’t mean event planners have to hold in-person events the same way they did before the pandemic. Customers are stepping out of their comfort zone, adopting the ritual of wearing work clothes (top and bottom) and moving around and, for the first time in a long time, are not multitasking. In-person events, Ahmed said, need to reflect that level of intentionality.

To do this, he suggests focusing on the “why” of the event. The food served, the setting of the event and the people present should all coordinate for a purpose. For example, a bonding event for a team of marketers might make sense in a setting with movable seating, whiteboards for brainstorming, and snacks to share. A founder hoping to woo investors for a food-tech product, on the other hand, would benefit more from a private dinner, where a chef can demonstrate all the different ways the item can be served.

Along with the in-person events, “this is the bigger story,” Ahmed explained. “Think about how food, drink and location create an experience on a subconscious and implicit level. How does it all fit together to make people feel excited and open to having the kind of conversations you want ? ”

If done correctly, a small, tailored in-person event can have an even bigger impact on attendees than it did before the pandemic. Professionals are more aware of the rarity of the situation, Polgar said, and that can make conversations more memorable and valuable. “If you go to a physical event, there’s a bit of this feeling of exclusivity. Not in elite terms, but you have a shared experience,” he says. “There’s this feeling of, ‘Wow, I u’ met at this event, then we stayed in touch, then we had coffee. The connection is stronger.

In short, networking in 2022 might take a little more work. But if you use the particularity of the moment to your advantage, be more considerate, and make sure the content really speaks to people, the resulting event can be effective.

“When much of our work is done remotely, the human experience when it happens — periodically rather than all the time — is much more important,” Ahmed said. “Now when we create an event there is a lot more impact.”

Ukrainian arms company offers $1m to capture working Russian plane


Ukrainian defense manufacturer wants to give anyone who captures a Russian military plane US$1 million

In a translated statement posted to its Facebook page on Tuesday, defense maker Ukroboronprom said it would award bounties to those who recover “combat aviation equipment stolen from occupiers”. The post says it will offer $500,000 for a captured military helicopter and $1 million for a fighter jet. In order for the bonuses to be received, the equipment must be in working order.

Ukroboronprom has also encouraged Russian soldiers who wish to defect to send in their equipment to be offered Ukrainian citizenship.

Ukroboronprom also offered Russian soldiers financial incentives to give up fighting and their working weapons.

“To take advantage of this opportunity, you must surrender to the Ukrainian authorities with the military equipment,” the company wrote on its website. “You and your family can become rich people, no longer have to carry out criminal orders. You can become free and rich. To reach Ukrainian dispatchers, you already know the frequencies.”

A Ukrainian arms company is offering up to $1 million to anyone who can salvage working Russian military hardware.

If the Russian population is reflected in the country’s army, then some soldiers might decide to accept Ukroboronprom’s offer in an act of resistance. A recent poll by aides to Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny showed that 53% of 700 people polled in Moscow see their country as an aggressor in the war, with 28% calling Russia a liberator. About 36% of survey participants blamed Russia for the ongoing war.

While the Navalny poll’s respondent pool was limited, it reflects a growing sentiment across Russia that is pushing the country’s citizens to protest against the war. Around 13,000 anti-war protesters have been arrested since the invasion began.

As far as arms are concerned, while Ukraine is able to obtain supplies thanks to companies like Ukroboronprom, the United States recently announced that it would send weapons to the country as part of a program of aid of 12 billion dollars. Some politicians have warned against such moves, including Representative Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota.

“The consequences of flooding Ukraine with billions of dollars in [American] weapons, which are likely not limited to army-specific equipment but also include small arms and ammunition, are unpredictable and likely disastrous,” Omar wrote on Twitter.

“I support giving Ukraine the resources it needs to defend its people, I just have legitimate concerns about size and scope.”

Newsweek contacted the Russian Ministry of Defense for comments.

INE teams up with black girls in Cyber ​​For Women’s

Cary, NC, March 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — INE, the global leader in online technical training, is thrilled to announce that it is partnering with Black Girls in Cyber ​​to celebrate the Month of women’s history. As part of its commitment to BGiC, INE will donate 5% of sales during the week of March 8-11, 2022 to help advance the organization’s mission.

Women have historically been underrepresented in the tech industry and currently make up 28.8% of the tech workforce, according to a recent study by the AnitaB Institute. While the percentage of women in tech has steadily increased from 25.9% in 3018 to 26.2% in 2019, there is still a long way to go.

Black Girls in Cyber ​​(BGiC) is a non-profit organization founded in 2020 by Talya Parker. BGiC’s mission is to increase industry awareness and diversity in cybersecurity, STEM and privacy. Through mentorship, scholarships, webinars, conferences and community outreach, BGiC supports a continuous flow of qualified women to serve their communities in these roles.

INE is dedicated to advancing women in computing, amplifying the voices of women of color, and changing the computing landscape. INE’s commitment to breaking barriers in technical education and empowering a new generation of learners aligns strongly with BGiC’s mission to bring more women and women of color into the workplace. technological.

How to buy the best car loan


Auto loans allow you to spread the cost of buying your next car into affordable payments. There are a number of car finance deals available in the UK and it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Car loans are never guaranteed for everyone, but there are several ways to increase your chances of being approved and getting the best deal possible. It’s important that you research different rates, and we’ve compiled a list of the best ways to get a great deal on a car loan.

What factors can affect car loan rates:

The amount you pay each month for car financing can vary depending on a number of factors.

Credit score. Lenders will usually require you to pass a credit check before accepting you for financing. Auto lenders want to know what experience you’ve had with managing credit in the past, and they can do that by taking a quick look at your credit report. People with good credit ratings usually have access to better interest rates and end up paying less. If you have a low credit score, you might consider raising your credit score before you start applying.

Interest rate. Your offered interest rate will determine how much you pay in additional fees. In short, the interest rate is the cost of borrowing. Your interest rate can be determined by your contribution to the deposit, your credit score, the length of the financing agreement and more. Low interest car financing means you won’t pay as much overall and can help make your financing more affordable.

Contribution deposit. In terms of deposit, the more you invest, the more you withdraw. Putting down a down payment for a car loan can help increase your approval rates and also lower your payments. Some auto loans also require you to put down a deposit to secure your deal, which can help you save up for a down payment before you start applying.

How to get the best deal

It is recommended to seek the best financing offer possible, but you may be wondering where to start. Let’s see how you can get the most affordable auto loan for your situation.

budget first

When it comes to financing a car, budget is everything. Car loans usually last between 2 and 4 years, so it’s important that you know that you can meet your payments each month for a long period of time. Your monthly budget should be realistic and affordable, as it is essential that you can meet your payments each month. In some auto finance contracts, such as hire purchase contracts, the loan is secured by the vehicle. This means that if you don’t meet your repayments, the lender has the right to take the vehicle away from you.

Calculate your loan

By using a auto finance calculator, you can see how much funding you could receive before you even apply! Just set your monthly budget to finance the term of your loan and your current credit rating, and you can see how much you could be offered for car financing. This will give you a better idea of ​​the cars available within your budget!

Use a broker

Shopping around for a car loan is a great way to get the best deal, but applying multiple times to different companies in a short period of time can hurt your credit score. Alternatively, you may consider hiring an auto finance broker to assist you. You only have to apply once to a broker, then they submit your application to a wide range of lenders on their panel. They can then select the best finance rate for you. You can then take your finance agreement to any dealership in the UK that is verified by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Consider different types of cars

We all know getting your dream car is a really exciting prospect, but you could save money by comparing a range of different cars. If you want to cut costs, you may want to consider a cheaper car, as you will be taking out a cheaper loan. A loan that is worth less may be more affordable and you can pay it off faster.

The 5 main advantages of taking out a loan online


Taking out a loan online has become a top choice for many people because it is quick, easy, and convenient. It may be just what you need to stay in control of your finances. Whether you want to consolidate your debts or use the money for something else, there are undeniable advantages to taking out a loan online. Here are some of the main benefits:

Quick and easy process

When you need money, the last thing on your mind is to go to the bank and fill out an application. With the convenience of doing everything online these days, applying for online payday loans from direct lenders uk is a quick and easy process that you can do from the comfort of your own home.

Online businesses provide easy and quick access to consumers who need cash. The application process is simple and you can deposit money into your account in just one day. There are many lenders available, and it’s crucial to compare rates and terms before making a decision.

Once you find a lender you like, click on their website link and learn about their services and loan options. You will be asked questions such as how much money you need, how long you need it, and your credit score. Some lenders may also ask you if you have collateral that they can use as collateral if you don’t repay it on time or at all.

Compare loan offers

You can quickly compare several loan offers when you apply for a loan online. Most lenders offer a free quote before signing any agreement. In most cases, there is no obligation to accept the offer.

Here are some tips for comparing different loan offers:

Interest rate: The interest rate is the amount of money you will pay in interest on your loan. This is also known as the APR (annual percentage rate). The APR varies from lender to lender, so it pays to shop around. Look at the total cost of borrowing when comparing different loans.

Loan Terms: The term of the loan refers to the time you have to repay the loan. Depending on your situation and your needs, it can be a short-term or long-term loan.

Loan fees: Loan fees are what lenders fees for the processing of your application and the approval of your loan. Compare the fees charged by each lender for their services to ensure you get what you pay for.

Less documentation required

There is less documentation required when applying for a loan online. This means you don’t need to provide the lender with copies of your payslips and bank statements. You will only need to provide this information in the event of a loan approval once the lender has assessed your application.

Applying for a loan can take days or even weeks if you go through a bank. This is not the case if you apply for a loan online. Once approved, the money can be in your account and ready to use within 60 minutes. This is made possible by using “interbank” transfer times rather than the post office.

Low interest rates

For many, online loans offer lower interest rates and more affordable terms that make paying off your loan easier. Although some lenders require you to have excellent credit, there are also plenty of options for borrowers with less than perfect credit scores.

Online loans are a quick and easy way to get the money you need fast. Whether you’re looking for a payday loan or a personal loan, you can apply for a loan today without leaving your home. Once approved, the money will be deposited directly into your bank account, so you will have access to the funds within one business day.

No collateral requirement

With the growing number of people applying for loans, financial institutions have innovated the way they lend money to the public by creating online loan application portals that do not require any collateral. This is the best news for borrowers on a tight budget and those starting their own business but lacking capital.

For many people, the absence of a collateral requirement is very important. Some choose not to apply for a loan because they cannot provide any collateral. They also find it stressful to ask for help from other people to act as guarantors. Fortunately, there are now online lenders who offer loans without collateral or guarantor. You can even apply on your own without anyone else’s help.

There are many things to consider when applying for a loan, such as interest rates, repayment terms, benefits, etc. But since we are focusing on the collateral requirement here, we will talk about it in detail so that you can find the right lender for you. your needs and preferences.

International Women’s Day 2022 – gender equality

Once I shared my goals with Caroline, my coach, I waited for her response. I expected her to say something about priorities, work-life balance, etc. But the words she spoke were much more insightful. She said, “But Emma, ​​how about doing none of that?”

His suggestion made me feel a sense of panic and relief simultaneously. I was relieved that I didn’t have to do all that grueling, relentless self-improvement work; but also freaking out that I would go against the advice I had heard for many years, which went like this:

  • Women are not good at networking, so you better get out there.
  • Women don’t negotiate their salary, so you need to mobilize.
  • Women in leadership positions have impostor syndrome, so you better boost your confidence.

etc You get the point.

It got me thinking about how we approach gender equity in the corporate world and some of the unintended consequences of our well-intentioned actions.

never good enough

I realized that in our efforts to equip women (and other underrepresented groups) with the tools to succeed, we risked reinforcing the message that they are somehow inadequate. By focusing too much of our attention on improving the skills of women and underrepresented groups, we risk creating a “if only you could network better, be a tougher negotiator, or have more confidence, you would be successful” narrative. , rather than “if only we could strengthen our ability to value difference, you would succeed.”

After all, women are neither better nor worse than men when it comes to networking. However, in general, they have fewer opportunities to network and therefore tend to network around stronger, long-term relationships with others rather than relationships that provide immediate value. On reflection, that sounds pretty good. And imagine the power of combining these different types of networks into a leadership team.

Recent research has also revealed that women negotiate as often as men, but achieve less favorable results. So, again, the answer is not necessarily to make women better negotiators, but rather to rethink how we set pay and compensation. This is why the CEO of Reddit is currently experimenting with a total ban on salary negotiations.

And it turns out that men and women are equally susceptible to impostor syndrome, so maybe a bit of self-doubt is part of being responsible for something meaningful rather than a uniquely female defect.

My conclusion here is not that as women we shouldn’t worry about developing important skills or learning continuously. In fact, we have great programs at Ericsson focused on exactly that. Rather it should be a choice we make from a position of strength and abundance, rather than lack. The programs we create at Ericsson correct the barriers of society, not the deficiencies of individuals.

That’s why, at Ericsson, we focus on understanding the changes we need to make to our systems and culture, to better appreciate the different skills and perspectives of our colleagues. This includes our company-wide cultural transformation program and five focus areas: empathy and humanity, so we can better appreciate everyone’s needs and experiences; express yourself – making sure to create a space for people to share their different points of view; courageous, fact-based decision-making, so that we examine the real rather than the supposed causes of gender inequality; cooperation and collaboration—to build diverse, high-performing teams; and execute quickly, to accelerate the pace of change.

Awareness and not discouragement

Another issue is that in raising awareness of the challenges women face in the corporate world and the tech sector, we must not leave women wondering “why should I work here? »

Incredible work has been done by so many academics and researchers on the less favorable treatment women receive in the corporate sphere. This is extremely important, and we must continue to test our organizations, be transparent about weaknesses in our systems and cultures, and address them.

But we also need to recognize the fact that women have made and continue to make incredible contributions to science, technology and innovation, so as not to give the impression that the odds are so stacked against us that it not even worth trying.

For me, International Women’s Day is about putting women back in history to demonstrate the exciting and impactful careers we’ve had in the tech industry. From Hilda Ericsson, who was central to the creation of the company I work for today, to modern day pioneers like Dame Stephanie Shirley who in the 1960s started her own engineering company employing a very particular group of untapped talents – mothers – and went on to sell the company for $3 billion several years later. And let’s not forget the many other amazing women who often go unmentioned, like my mother in the 1970s, who as a woman made up the majority of the workforce at the very practical end of the world. he telecommunications industry, managing telephone exchanges at the time, connection was a manual task.

I hope you’ll take a moment to watch the video above which showcases some of the incredible women who make up our team here at Ericsson. I really want women considering a career in tech to know that people like us have great careers in places like this.

Towards a better and more authentic future

I will honor International Women’s Day this year by reflecting on the advice Caroline gave me: that I am not here to catch up, but to build on a solid foundation. I know there are still a lot of challenges for women in the workplace, but I have so many more role models in the business world than my mother’s generation had, and the next generation will even more. This progress will be made possible by recognizing women and rewriting us in the history books as well as changing organizational processes and cultures to better honor difference.

Security firm Orca discovers “AutoWarp”, a cross-tenant vulnerability in Azure Automation Service


Disclosure of a leak in Microsoft’s Azure Automation platform in December 2021 recently surfaced to highlight a possible cross-tenant vulnerability in the process.

According to a report from Venture Beat, Microsoft was lucky to have the exploit flagged by a friendly researcher from Orca Security who managed to find a report on the Azure Automation vulnerability before malicious hackers could take advantage of it. of the security failure.

Had Orca not been on the case, the vulnerability had the power to allow someone to jump from one Azure tenant to another with access to customer data and information.

Orca researcher Yanir Tsarimi reported the tenant vulnerability dubbed Auto Warpto Microsoft on December 6, 2021 and the company claims to have patched the exploit four days later on December 10, 2021.

In the time leading up to its discovery or the four days since, “‘You could have gotten a lot of access to a lot of customers very easily,'” said Yoav Alon, CTO of cloud security firm Orca Security.

More specifically, the Auto Warp The vulnerability would have allowed hackers to take advantage of permissions companies put in place to help automate processes and gain access to full account resources based on the current configuration.

Although the explanation may seem tertiary, the mechanics are frighteningly simple, with the exploit posing one of the most severe consequences in the cloud, according to Alon.

So actually being able to take over or access someone else’s account is a pretty big violation. It is considered one of the biggest security holes you can have in the cloud. This is one of the main promises of cloud providers — they promise you that no other tenant will be able to access your data or resources.

Alon’s statement is based on Yanir Tsarimi’s write-up on the company’s blog which includes full technical details such as logs, sandboxes, timelines, etc.

Microsoft’s Azure Automation wasn’t the only cloud service provider Orca contacted regarding cross-tenant vulnerabilities. In January, Tsarimi published another report on a similar exploit called Superglue in Amazon Web Services (AWS).

We discovered a critical security issue in the AWS Glue service that could allow an actor to create resources and access data from other AWS Glue customers. The exploit was a complex multi-step process and was ultimately possible due to an internal misconfiguration within AWS Glue. The Glue service has access to large amounts of data, which makes it a very attractive target.

Similarly, no customer accounts were “inappropriately accessed”, but Alon warns that simple flaws such as these will continue to have far greater impacts as more people put information in the cloud.

Netflix suspends streaming service in Russia amid war in Ukraine | Ents & Arts News

Netflix pulled its streaming service in Russia in protest at the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

the The American streaming giant said that “given the circumstances on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia”.

New customers can no longer register and existing customers will lose access in the days and weeks to come, according to business news website Bloomberg.

Last week, the company announced that it would suspend all future projects and acquisitions in the country. They had four Russian Originals in the works, all of which have been put on hold.

They had also refused to carry 20 free-to-air TV channels – which under a Russian law known locally as the Vitrina TV law – are mandatory for channel distribution.

The “must carry” channels include news, sports and entertainment, and would be aligned with Russian authorities.

Netflix’s operations in Russia are still small, and there are no offices or employees in the territory.

Netflix launched its service in the country in 2016 and operates the service in a joint venture with Russia’s National Media Group. He currently has around one million subscribers.

TikTok users will not be able to upload new content

About 1.6 million people have fled Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian invasion, according to the United Nations.

There have been repeated attacks on civilians trying to flee using the humanitarian corridors.

Many top companies have distanced themselves from Russia since its invasion of Ukraine.

TikTok users will not be able to upload new content, after the Chinese social networking service expressed concern over a new “fake news” law in Russia.

“We have no choice but to suspend live streaming and new content from our video service in Russia while we review the security implications of this law,” he said in a statement. .

Its in-app messaging service will not be affected.

The Kremlin has introduced a law that means people who spread “false” information about the Russian armed forces could be jailed for up to 15 years.

American Express, Visa and Mastercard announced they were taking similar action, as did accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers.

PayPal has shut down its services, with chief executive Dan Schulman saying the company “stands with the international community in condemning Russia’s violent military aggression.”

Puma and IKEA have closed stores, Apple and Microsoft have halted product sales, and Hollywood studios have postponed the release of new films.

Ericsson, CEO and CFO Facing US Class Action Lawsuit – Networking

Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson, its chief executive and chief financial officer have been named as defendants in a U.S. class action lawsuit for misleading investors about the company’s transactions in Iraq, a New York court filing said. .

Ericsson is at the center of a scandal over potential payments to the Islamic State in Iraq.

Last week, the US Department of Justice said it breached a 2019 Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) for failing to fully disclose details of its operations in Iraq.

The filing, filed by law firm Pomerantz with the District Court for the Eastern District of New York, said, among other things, that Ericsson misled investors by overstating the extent to which it eliminated the use of bribes.

A spokesperson for Ericsson could not immediately be reached for comment, but Ericsson said in a brief statement that the company and “certain (company) executives” had been named as defendants in connection. of “allegedly false and misleading statements” regarding Iraq.

Under the terms of the 2019 DPA, Ericsson paid more than US$1 billion (A$1.4 billion) to solve a series of corruption investigations, involving bribery in China, Vietnam and Djibouti, and agreed to cooperate with the department in ongoing investigations.

Ericsson has lost almost a third of its market value since the media reported the alleged kickbacks in February.

Ericsson said an internal investigation, which ended in 2019 but was not made public until February after media inquiries, identified payments intended to circumvent Iraqi customs at a time when militant organizations, including the Islamic State, controlled certain roads.

Aeroflot, the Russian state airline, announces that it will suspend international flights


Russia’s state airline, Aeroflot, said on Saturday it would suspend all international flights from Tuesday “due to additional circumstances that prevent the execution of flights.”

The cancellation will also apply to its Aurora and Rossiya subsidiaries, the airline said, although Aeroflot said it would continue to fly to Minsk, the capital of Belarus.

Russia’s airline industry has been hit hard as countries around the world imposed sanctions on Russia over President Vladimir V. Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine. Mr. Putin and President Aleksandr G. Lukashenko of Belarus are allies, and Russian forces attacked Ukraine from Belarus.

In another sign of harm to the country’s airline industry, Russia’s aviation authority, Rosaviatsia, recommended on Saturday that Russian airlines with planes registered in foreign jurisdictions suspend all overseas flights from Sunday for fear that they will be seized by foreign governments.

The suspension effectively means that Russian airlines will no longer be able to fly foreign-made planes on international routes.

It is also likely to become more difficult for Russian airlines to use foreign-made planes domestically, as companies such as Boeing and Airbus have suspended parts, maintenance and service. technical assistance after the invasion.

There were 332 Boeing planes among Russia’s airline fleet of 861 planes in service at the start of March, according to Cirium, an analytics firm.

The European Union has ordered leasing companies to terminate hundreds of aircraft leases by Russian companies. Russia retaliated by banning Western-based airlines from entering its airspace.

Twitter is testing a new podcast service to keep its users more inclined / Digital Information World

Twitter plans to integrate popular podcast functionality into the program.

Alessandro Paluzzi is a well-known app researcher, as evidenced by the screenshot he shared, in the sidebar of the popular social networking app, a new podcast area is being tested.

Jane Manchan Wong discovered this in the app more significantly than Alessandro Paluzzi, a podcast button in the bottom navigation panel, Wong also shared the screenshot.

It looks like Twitter is going to take a big leap forward in podcast discovery, allowing creators to link directly to their podcasts within the app, in the same way they can now actively link to their newsletters. thanks to Twitter’s acquisition of Revue last year.

Breaker, a podcast discovery app, was bought by Twitter last year, with the Breaker team saying it would be folded into the Spaces development group. At the time, it seemed like Twitter was intent on boosting the discovery of Spaces in particular, with the Breaker team stating that it would be integrated into the Spaces development team.

Perhaps the social networking app has huge intentions for Breaker, especially when it comes to more specific integration of Breaker’s podcast listing capability. It can also be used in conjunction with Spaces, with saved Spaces being downloaded as podcasts to listen to in the new tab.

If Twitter handles it well, this could be a terrific addition. especially in light of the current growth in popularity of podcasts.

According to a survey, 41% of Americans listen to at least one podcast at least once a month, up 32% from 2019. While there’s no way to tell when Twitter will add this feature to the application because the company has not given a particular schedule.

Their users and creators hope that Twitter will work hard to maintain its popularity among them by developing new features and improvements.

ConnectMeVoice takes telecom billing out of the cloud VoIP sales equation

ConnectMeVoice takes on its hosted VoIP competition by eliminating complexity around billing, according to Frank Seltzer, channel manager at cloud VoIP specialist.

The Summerville, SC-based service provider got its start two decades ago and serves the communication needs of small and medium-sized businesses through channel partners. ConnectMeVoice wants its agents and MSP partners to care more about margins than the “annoyances” that come with telecom services, said Seltzer (pictured above), who attended CRN’s parent company’s XChange 2022 conference , The Channel Company, this week in Dallas.

“We want our partners to be able to support their customers, without having to make heavy demands on the supplier, [or] take care of billing and taxation,” he said. “Believe it or not, most people sign up because of tax and billing more than anything else.”


MSPs: How To Use QBRs As A Path To Customer Success


It’s the vendor billing model that really sets ConnectMeVoice apart from the competition in the SMB voice space, said Paul Nebb, CEO of Titan Technologies, LLC., an MSP that serves small businesses, primarily law firms. and local accountants.

ConnectMeVoice does not charge per seat, but rather bases its pricing on voice lines used, not all phones listed on the account, Nebb said. The company also handles invoicing on behalf of partners.

Titan Technologies, based in Marlboro, New Jersey, works exclusively with ConnectMeVoice. “As an MSP, it’s really important that you and your technicians know your stack inside out, instead of having five or six different products,” Nebb said. « ConnectMeVoice [product] can really handle everything from small customers to our larger customers of a few hundred seats. »

100% channel-focused, ConnectMeVoice may work with partners through an agent model, but the typical approach to going to market with partners is through a reseller model. The real money, Seltzer said, is in the white-label model, which is often the opposite sales model that vendors in the telecom space have traditionally offered to partners.

“It’s really our bread and butter,” he says. “[Partners] sign up with us, bring their customers and they are able to support those customers as they need.

From there, the partner can set their own price, Seltzer said. “The MSP can make the margins it needs to be successful, but also charge its customer the price that makes the most sense,” he said.

ConnectMeVoice offers what it calls call path pricing. A call path, for example, can accommodate 10 concurrent calls while a customer can have 30 lines in total. The model helps partners cut their customers’ voice costs by around a third or even half, while MSPs can earn margins of up to 65% by setting their own prices, Seltzer said.

The provider has a two-tier partner program consisting of a “beginner” level and a more advanced level, which offers lower purchase rates, according to the company.

For MSPs who might still be hesitant to sell cloud-based voice, Seltzer warns that this is another technology that touches a customer’s network, something most partners already manage for their customers. clients.

“If you don’t sell to them, someone else will. And if someone else is touching your customers’ network right now, they might come in and say, “Oh, let me sell you cybersecurity, or let me sell you your Wi-Fi.” It is therefore extremely crucial to have at least VoIP as an offer.

The interest rates you can get depend on your overall credit health. Below are the average interest rates for borrowers, ranging from excellent to bad credit, based on data from Bankrate.

Credit score Average loan interest rate
Excellent (720-850) 10.3%-12.5%
Good (690-719) 13.5%-15.5%
Good (690-719) 13.5%-15.5%
Just (630-689) 17.8%-19.9%
Bad (300-629) 28.5%-32.0%

How to Compare Personal Loan Rates

When applying for a personal loan, potential borrowers should keep a few things in mind to help them get the best rates and the best personal lender for their situation:

  • Compare interest rates and fees: You may want to compare the APR range of a few lenders, but you may not be able to qualify for the lowest advertised rate. The interest rate you qualify for depends on your credit health and other approval requirements. If you can, prequalify for more specific pricing. You also need to factor in any fees that will affect the overall cost of your loan.
  • Prequalify if possible: Many lenders allow borrowers to prequalify for loans, allowing you to submit your financial information and learn the exact rates you qualify for. Knowing your exact quote from a lender will help you decide if it’s best for you, and you’ll be able to compare interest rates more accurately.
  • Consider the purpose of your loan: Every lender is different, and the right lender for you depends on the purpose of your loan and your specific needs. Personal loans have a wide range of purposes, from consolidating debt to financing large purchases such as weddings and vacations. How you plan to use your loan will affect which lender is right for you.
  • Consider loan amounts and repayment options: The amount of money you need to borrow could limit your choices of lenders, as different lenders allow different borrowing ranges and different repayment term options. If you need to borrow a large sum of money, you may want to find a lender with long repayment terms and a wide range of loan amounts.

How to get a lower personal loan rate

You can use some strategies to improve your chances of finding a better loan rate:

  • Sign up for automatic payment: Some lenders offer a discount on interest rates to borrowers who use automatic payment.
  • Choose a shorter repayment period: The longer your repayment period, the higher your interest rate is likely to be. If you are financially able to repay the loan in a shorter time frame, your interest rate will likely be lower.
  • Improve your credit score before applying: The better your credit score, the lower your personal loan interest rate is likely to be. You can take steps to improve your credit score over time.
  • Get a co-signer with strong credit: Some lenders allow you to borrow loans with a co-signer. If you co-sign a loan with someone who has good credit, you’re more likely to qualify for lower rates.

You also need to factor in any fees that will affect the overall cost of your loan.
  • Prequalify if possible: Many lenders offer a prequalification option. This usually creates a soft credit check, so it won’t affect your credit score if you prequalify with a few lenders to see what your rate and loan details would be. Prequalification will help you compare interest rates more accurately when shopping.
  • Consider the purpose of your loan: Every lender is different, and the right lender for you depends on the purpose of your loan and your specific needs. Personal loans have a wide range of purposes, from consolidating debt to financing large purchases such as weddings and vacations.

5 Steps to Build Your Personal Brand on Social Media | Internet Legal Solutions Inc.

Social media is one of the most powerful digital marketing tools available today, and we all know we need to use it. Having an active presence on major platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) will ensure you reach as many people as possible with your content.

Social media is one of the best, if not the best, places to showcase your personal brand. What is your personal brand? It’s the unique combination of skills and personality that you want the world to see. It’s the telling of your story, and it reflects your behavior and attitude.

There are some key differences between each social media platform that you need to consider when it comes to building your personal brand and important things you need to know about how to create and share great content that will get you noticed.

#1: Determine which platform is right for your brand.

The first step in using social media to build your personal brand is deciding which sites you want to participate in. Here are the “big four” when it comes to legal marketing:

1. LinkedIn can help you get noticed. This is a site that can help you build and maintain professional relationships with clients, prospects, potential employers, and employees. That’s not to say it can’t be used by other people, as there are many affinity groups on seemingly countless topics of interest available for anyone to join.

If your main goal is to connect with other professionals, LinkedIn is a good place to start.

2. Facebook is by far the largest platform, and also one of the busiest. With nearly 2 billion users, Facebook has become a go-to site for just about everyone. Due to the sheer volume of posts, it can be difficult to have content that stands out.

To be successful on Facebook, you’ll need to post more often than on other networks to get noticed.

3. Twitter is one of the easiest sites to succeed if you stick with it long enough. There are days when no one seems to use the site at all, and others when everyone is tweeting wholeheartedly. One of Twitter’s challenges is the 280 character limit, which can make it difficult for beginners to break through.

Consistent posting over time can yield good results.

4. What instagram Lacking conversion potential (since no hyperlinks are allowed in your post text), it more than makes up for its visual appeal. By far the most popular site for posting pictures, Instagram gives you the ability to share everything from photos of your new pup to your dinner party last night. You can even upload short videos using some of your most engaging educational content, or information about upcoming speaking engagements via stories and reels if you wish.

With so many people using the site and viewing the images as their primary source of content, this is a hugely important platform.

#2: Understand the advantages of each platform.

Now that we’ve covered what social networks exist and what their characteristics are, it’s time to see how you can use them to benefit your brand.

LinkedIn is where you really want to make sure everything is correct before you post it. Due to its professional nature, this site will be used as a measurement tool for potential customers and anyone else who wants to know more about you as a person or as a service provider. Make sure your profile (which must be complete) reflects the best possible version of yourself; don’t include information that doesn’t highlight your abilities and attributes. Also, remember that this is where you connect with clients and colleagues, so striking the right balance between the personal and the professional is key.

The most important thing about Facebook is to remember that quality trumps quantity every time. Posting something just once a day, or even just once a week, isn’t necessarily bad if you’re posting high-quality content instead of multiple half-hearted efforts. It’s helpful to schedule all of your posts in advance using Hootsuite, Buffer, HubSpot, or one of the many other options available. This allows you to focus on creating great content rather than constantly worrying about posting everything yourself.

With its character limit, follow Twitter may seem like an impossible task at first. However, there are a few tricks on this site that will make your life easier. Above all, use hashtags. These small keywords allow anyone interested in the subject to find your message. Hashtags also help get noticed by big companies and people with large audiences; like them enough, and they’ll be more likely to follow you (and even share your stuff).

instagram is simple: take quality photos, add a cool filter if you wish, and voila! You have a photo worth sharing on Instagram. For lawyers, it can be difficult to think about the types of photos you would post. The key here is to show your personal side. What are your passions? What do you do outside of work? Where do you volunteer? How do you pass the down time with your colleagues?

If you’re feeling ambitious, post a longer video or two, but make sure they contain something meaningful before you do. no one wants to see your cat sleeping if it’s not doing anything interesting!

Each of these sites has its own purpose, so it’s important to spend some time determining what will help you achieve your personal goals.

#3: Build your personal brand landing page.

One of the main challenges is to stand out in a unique and attention-grabbing way.

The first step to creating an effective personal brand online is determining what your brand would look like. What do you want people to say about you when you bring up a conversation?

Start by thinking of yourself as a business and ask yourself the following questions:

  • Who are my clients ?
  • What value am I selling?
  • Why should clients hire me over my competitors?

Once you’ve determined these pieces, it’s time to create the actual branding.

Start with your LinkedIn profile. What are you known for in your industry? How do you want people to describe you? What are the keywords that can be associated with you? Think of three adjectives that best characterize your personality. The more unique and thoughtful this section is, the better it will resonate on all other social media channels.

#4: Create and post content that gets you noticed.

Then think about what makes you unique compared to other professionals in your field and share it! This can be done by highlighting original content you generated rather than the same content shared on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Be sure to include this unique content on all your social media channels and websites, as it will become searchable material for people looking to learn more about you.

Unfortunately, the majority of people will never bother to read beyond your short introductory paragraph. So make it worth their time! You can do this by telling a compelling story or sharing an interesting statistic that will grab their attention and encourage them to keep reading.

No matter what type of content you post, have fun with it. Take a chance here and there by posting something a little different from your usual style, but always keep in mind the value it brings to those who have chosen to follow you.

You don’t have to be perfect either. It’s normal – and encouraged – to occasionally post things that might not go exactly as you planned or have nothing to do with your brand! Along with being able to express yourself freely, it will also help show people that social media is an extension of who you really are. These platforms may not be the only things people see anymore, but they still help shape their first impression, so do your best to make a good one!

Don’t forget to also curate content for your audience from business and news publications. (Wait…didn’t you just say don’t share the same thing that’s already shared online?) Right! You should aim to be new. Don’t share the same everyone the rest is sharing. And whatever you share from another outlet, be sure to distill the key points for your audience.

In all likelihood, they won’t read the third party’s article.

But they will read your analysis of key points and the takeaways they need to know. Boiling it for them saves them time and adds value!!

#5: Interact with others.

Finally, remember that you can’t post anything online without interacting with others. Engage with other professionals in relevant groups and participate in ongoing conversations. Don’t just comment with generic phrases like “great article” or “great photo”. Think about what makes this particular topic important to you and how you can add value.

It is important to remember that the more value you give, the more value you will receive. Interacting with people online can be just as meaningful as doing it offline.

Ultimately, social media can be useful for many different things. It can help your career, create networking opportunities, learn new things and communicate effectively with clients/colleagues/friends/family etc. It won’t be overnight success, but the more you do it the more you learn. , your range will improve.

Social media has given us all a chance to show off our individual personalities in a simple way without having to say much. That’s why it’s great for building your personal brand.

605 Lending Operates Illegal “Rent-a-Tribe” Lending Program, Class Action Alleges


Payday lender FSST Management Services, LLC is facing a proposed class action lawsuit over its alleged participation in a so-called “rent-a-tribe” lending program in which the company claims to be operated by a Native American tribe to avoid the laws of usury of the state.

The 22-page Illinois lawsuit alleges that although the defendants, which include FSST, doing business as 605 Lending; its CEO and COO; and First Direct Mediation, Inc., a debt collector – which claims to be operated by the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, the tribe’s involvement in the “predatory” loan operation is “merely superficial.” According to the case, the defendants are, in reality, non-tribal moneylenders who are behind an “elaborate charade” whereby they pay the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe a fraction of their income in exchange for the use of its name. and associated tribal immunity.

“On information and belief, the tribe’s only real contribution is to provide a cloak of sovereign immunity for illegal lending activity,” the lawsuit charges, alleging that 605 Lending charged Illinois consumers more 700% interest on payday loans in violation of state usury. laws.

The lawsuit says that although 605 Lending is purported to be operated by the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, “all substantial aspects” of the lending operations are executed, funded and benefit non-tribal members.

“Where non-tribal individuals and entities control and manage the substantial lending functions, provide the loan capital necessary to support the operation, and bear the economic risk associated with the operation, they are in effect not being ‘exploited’ by Native American tribes and, therefore, are not protected by sovereign immunity,” the complaint argues.

According to the lawsuit, the loans made by 605 Lending are void and unenforceable because they violate Illinois law, which prohibits entities without a bank or credit union charter or a consumer loan license issued by the Department of state financial and professional regulations to grant loans at an interest rate greater than nine percent. Depending on the case, 605 Lending has no bank or credit union charter or Illinois lending license, but has made loans in the state at interest rates of 700% or more.

Additionally, First Direct Mediation attempted to collect 605’s allegedly illegal loans in violation of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit seeks to represent Illinois consumers who were granted a loan at more than nine percent interest and:

  • The loan was made in the name of 605 Lending and has not been fully repaid;
  • The loan was made by an entity without an appropriate lending license in Illinois or without a bank or credit union charter, has not been fully repaid, and which First Direct is seeking to collect or has collected within the past five years;
  • The loan was made in the name of FSST Management Services (doing business as 605 Lending) and is still outstanding or has been repaid within the last two years;
  • The loan was made by an entity without an appropriate Illinois lending license or bank or credit union charter and First Direct has collected money on it within the past two years;
  • The loan was made in the name of FSST Management Services (doing business as 605 Lending) on ​​or after March 23, 2021;
  • The loan was made by an entity without a proper lending license in Illinois or without a bank or credit union charter and First Direct collected money on it on or after March 23, 2021;
  • The loan was made in the name of FSST Management Services (doing business as 605 Lending) within the past four years; Where
  • The loan was made by an entity without a proper lending license in Illinois or without a bank or credit union charter and First Direct collected money after a disclosure was made during the year elapsed and up to 30 days after the filing of the complaint.

IP Infusion contributes to NTT’s development of uncompressed 8K120p video transmission technologies using the IOWN*1 All-Photonics Network (APN)

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IP infusiona leading provider of network disaggregation solutions for telecom and datacom operators, today announced that it has provided its OcNOS® white box*2 network operating system (OS) to Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) for its development of uncompressed 8K120p video transmission technologies using the IOWN All-Photonics Network (APN). This project is part of NTT’s efforts to provide the highest quality video communication regardless of distance in the IOWN era.

NTT recently announced*3 its development of the world’s first ultra-low latency video transmission technology that supports uncompressed 8K120p video. Using a deaggregation setup, it was able to send and receive 8K120p video as a SMPTE ST 2110 stream, which is equivalent to doubling the current standard frame rate of 8K video. This achieves ultra-low latency video transmission with less than 1ms delay between video input at the transmitting end and video output at the receiving end. Since this technology enables the transmission of uncompressed video over long distances using existing IP network services, it should have applications for high-capacity video transmission, supporting 4K and 8K, in a wide range of use cases such as remote production in the broadcast industry. , telemedicine and remote monitoring.

The technology of a disaggregated configuration for long distance transmission (Figure 1) is achieved by combining a hardware plug-in unit (VideoPIU), which converts SDI signals into SMPTE ST 2110 streams for optical transponders, and a software function to control the VideoPIU . The VideoPIU is capable of processing 8K60p video per unit, and 8K120p transmission is achieved by the coordinated operation of two units. To support these VideoPIUs, IP Infusion provided its OcNOS network operating system.

“IP Infusion supports the IOWN concept offered by NTT,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “As a technology partner in research, development and implementation, we are helping NTT realize this IOWN concept. We are very proud to have collaborated in the development of NTT’s first ultra-low latency video transmission technology, which supports uncompressed 8K120p video, by providing our OcNOS white box network operating system, which allows flexible adjustment of network configurations and eliminates vendor lock-in to reduce costs. Going forward, we will continue to work with NTT to develop and commercialize this technology.

OcNOS is the industry’s first comprehensive modular extensible network operating system for white-boxed open network solutions offering advanced L2/L3 features and L1 DWDM/OTN functions that include extensive switching support and routing ranging from MPLS (multi-protocol label switching) to PTP (Precision Timing Protocol) and API/protocols for SDN (Software Defined Networking). OcNOS offers hybrid, centralized or distributed network support; scalable and modular high-performance network; and a robust data plane built on merchant silicon.

*1 I OWN:

IOWN stands for Innovative Optical and Wireless Network, which is a concept proposed by NTT for networks and information processing infrastructure. Since January 2021, IP Infusion has been a general member of the IOWN Global Forum (established in January 2020), an international forum promoted by companies and organizations supporting the IOWN vision.



*2 White box solution:

A networking solution in which the software is decoupled from the hardware, enabling significant savings, flexible network configuration and rapid implementation of new functions and services.

*3 NTT press release:

“The first-ever ultra-low latency video transmission technology that supports uncompressed 8K120p in SMPTE ST 2110 Towards the highest quality video communication regardless of distance in the IOWN era”

student loan: 5 things to consider before getting a student loan to finance your international studies


Education loans to study at an educational institution abroad usually cover the full tuition fee and a predefined proportion of the cost of living and other miscellaneous expenses.

To check if you are eligible to immigrate,
Click here

The amount disbursed varies based on co-borrowers’ credit history, existing EMI burden, institution’s credibility, ability to provide fixed assets as collateral (if requested by lender), and receipt of confirmed admission from the respective University College.

Given the dynamic structure of student loans from different lenders and the varying expenses associated with different institutions, there are several things you should consider that can help optimize the process and reduce the effective debt obligation.

1. Compare the overall cost of education

This should be the first differential to consider before applying for a student loan to finance your studies abroad. In addition to considering tuition, a student must also consider expenses such as cost of living, travel, and other miscellaneous expenses. There are several institutes offering similar courses with broadly common pedagogies, but there can be huge differences in tuition and cost of living.

2. Explore all possible scholarship opportunities

This has been the most lucrative way to reduce overall spending abroad, as a number of private and government-supported organizations offer significant amounts through various scholarship opportunities that can potentially help lower your collective costs. .

This is a step that requires rigorous exercise as most scholarship programs are not well advertised. Hence, you need to dig deeper to explore the direct grants/scholarships offered by the respective state governments to foreign students.

3. Selecting the financial institution for your loan

Pre-screening the lender that meets your student loan needs can be tricky, as most student loan financiers will only grant a student loan if the student has been selected from a foreground.

The applicant should check if the course and college for which they are applying for a loan are eligible for funding. They should also check if it is an unsecured loan or if it is backed by collateral.

4. Loan conditions

Once the eligibility check is completed, the applicant should check the available loan amount, applicable interest rate, moratorium period before IMEs start, total loan term, availability of option to co-payment, margin requirement and eligibility for income tax deduction.

The applicant must also take the loan in installments i.e. the disbursement is made at the time of payment of the semester fee as the interest is charged after the amount is disbursed.

5. Servicing the loan

The applicant should also consider the serviceability of the loan. They should clarify things like the partial payment option and the pre-closing of the loan. Also, if the lender has digital channels to manage the loan or if they require physical visits to the branch. This is of great importance as the loan seeker could very easily end up working abroad.

Illinois board diversity shows slow growth, new report says

Illinois public companies are more sensitive to the need for gender, racial and ethnic diversity on their boards, though progress in these areas has been mixed, a study by researchers at the University of Illinois.

The report found that women’s representation on the board, despite notable gains, is lower than their overall representation in the workforce. Racial and ethnic minorities remain underrepresented, particularly in the case of Latinos, researchers have found.

But the report also highlighted greater corporate awareness of diversity issues. Its findings are based on 97 companies that complied with a state law in 2021 requiring them to report on diversity in the composition of their board of directors. It also asks them to summarize any policies to promote diversity on their board.

The same study was done for business filings in 2020, and it found only 74 companies complying with the law.

Increased compliance bodes well for more progress on diversity in corporate leadership, said Richard Benton, associate professor of sociology at the University of Illinois and co-author of the report. “Everything companies care about, they measure.”

The state law, signed into law in 2019, focuses businesses’ attention on inclusion, Benton said. He wrote the report with Assistant Professor Eunmi Mun. Both are affiliated with the U of I School of Labor and Employment Relations.

Their review of 2021 filings shows that 80% of companies listed two or more female directors, compared to 67% in 2020 filings. In 2021, 50% of companies reported having at least two non-white directors, compared to 35% in 2020.

“Although a handful of companies are leading the way in terms of board diversity, there is still wide variation as many companies have unrepresentative boards,” the report said. For example, he said 76% of companies submitting reports had no directors who identified as Hispanic or Latino, who make up 16% of the state’s total population.

Blacks, who make up about 14% of the state’s population, are not included on the boards of 37% of companies, the report said.

He highlighted policies several companies have adopted to promote diversity, such as Morningstar’s goal of interviewing teams with a 50-50 gender split for hiring senior executives. WW Grainger, according to the report, uses an executive search firm to secure diverse candidate slates for open board seats, while Nuveen and Discover Financial Services have supported internal women’s networking efforts.

Benton said many companies are responding to pro-diversity laws that several states have enacted or are considering. “It’s a space that’s moving very quickly,” he said. The Nasdaq now requires board diversity reporting for its listed companies.

Illinois law requires an annual report but does not set a diversity minimum. It does not apply to private companies or those that are publicly traded but based outside of Illinois.

Todd Maisch, president and CEO of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, said companies are concerned that state law will be changed to set standards for board members. “Disclosure is fine, but very often disclosure is a predecessor to warrant,” he said.

Speaking for himself and not his members, Maisch said nearly every executive he meets values ​​diversity in company leadership and the workforce. “They want to be as diverse as possible, but it has to make sense to them,” he said. “It’s a complex question. The answers are not simple.

The report’s findings are similar to an examination of racial diversity on boards and in the workplace by companies on the Russell 3000 Index. Released this year by ISS Corporate Solutions, the analysis found that directors not whites on boards are increasing, but still only 17% of the total.

ISS, which monitors corporate governance issues, said there had been an increase in shareholder resolutions dealing with racial diversity.

In an article published last year by Northwestern University, R. Mark McCareins, a clinical professor of business law, said that while state regulations are a factor, shareholder attention has forced more companies to consider their diversity background.

“If I’m a public company, whether or not I’m currently state or federally regulated, I’ll probably also be concerned about what my investor base — and especially my institutional investors — think about this issue,” he says. in the article.

The European Union discusses with the United States an extension of the airspace ban to Russia

  • Flights between Europe and North Asia are the most affected
  • European airlines cancel cargo flights
  • Air freight rates already high due to the pandemic

March 1 (Reuters) – The European Union is in talks with its U.S. counterparts over extending the ban on Russian flights, it said on Tuesday, while giving more details about the closure of the airspace by the EU to Russian planes imposed after the invasion of Ukraine by Moscow.

Airlines are already facing potentially long lockdowns of key east-west flight corridors after the EU and Moscow issued tit-for-tat airspace bans. Washington has not ruled out similar action. Read more

A senior EU official, when asked if they were talking about it in the US following the EU ban, told reporters: ‘Yes, there are discussions with the US on the measures they will adopt”.

The EU official said Russian oligarchs, even those with dual nationality, would not be able to circumvent the EU airspace ban. Read more

“It doesn’t matter if they are EU residents, if they are Russian nationals they will be covered,” the official said.

“Russian nationals or a Russian company cannot charter, own or control an aircraft that will fly into the EU, out of the EU or overfly the EU. So that’s the rule.”

The Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which has no direct land connection to Russia, is not exempt from the EU airspace closure, another EU official told Reuters.


Global supply chains, already hard hit by the pandemic, will face increasing disruption and cost pressure from closed skies, which will affect more than a fifth of air cargo.

The hardest hit will likely be Russian carriers, which account for around 70% of flights between Russia and the EU.

Transport between Europe and North Asian destinations like Japan, South Korea and China is at the forefront of disruption after reciprocal bans barred European carriers from flying over Siberia and prevented Russian airlines from fly to Europe.

Airlines responsible for transporting around 20% of global air cargo are affected by the bans, Frederic Horst, managing director of Cargo Facts Consulting, told Reuters on Tuesday.

German carriers Lufthansa (LHAG.DE), Air France KLM (AIRF.PA), Finnair and Virgin Atlantic have already canceled North Asian cargo flights due to closed airspace access.

Lufthansa Cargo will also cut some flights in the coming weeks after the closure of Russian airspace, a spokesman for the German carrier said on Tuesday.

Scandinavian airline SAS (SAS.ST) said it would reroute its Copenhagen-Shanghai service once a week to avoid Russian airspace, and had also suspended its Copenhagen-Tokyo service.

However, major Asian carriers like Korean Air Lines (003490.KS) and Japan’s ANA Holdings (9202.T) still use Russian airspace, as do Middle Eastern airlines.


Russian airlines are also feeling the pinch with Pobeda Airlines, the low-cost carrier of national flag carrier Aeroflot (AFLT.MM), facing demands from a number of leasing companies to return their planes, a reported the Interfax news agency. Read more

Pure cargo carriers like AirBridgeCargo Airlines in Russia and Cargolux in Luxembourg are subject to the bans in a move that could drive up air cargo fares – already high due to a lack of passenger capacity during the pandemic – even further.

“Flights are getting more expensive due to longer journeys,” said Stefan Maichl, an analyst at Landesbank Baden-Wuerttemberg in Germany.

In December, air freight rates were 150% above 2019 levels, according to the International Air Transport Association.

Sanctions imposed on Russia following its invasion of Ukraine are expected to further disrupt global supply chains.

Russia’s AirBridgeCargo alone carries just under 4% of the world’s international air cargo, most of it between Europe and Asia, Horst said.

“In total, you could be looking at a quarter of air cargo between Asia and Europe needing to find other means of transportation,” Horst said.

“The yields are high enough that flying a longer route via Southeast Asia, South Asia or the Middle East is an option, but it will still take capacity out of the market.”


Shipping container shortages and port bottlenecks mean more products are transported by air. Last year, air freight demand was 6.9% above 2019 levels, according to IATA.

Taiwan’s EVA Airways (2618.TW) said on Tuesday its cargo flights to and from Europe were operating normally and it would consider adding more services to meet market demand.

China Airlines, also based in Taiwan, said it would adjust its cargo capacity depending on the situation.

Asia-North America cargo routes are expected to be less affected than European routes, analysts say, as many carriers already use Anchorage, Alaska, as a cargo hub and stopover point.

Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) and Nissan Motor Co said on Tuesday they were monitoring any disruptions to supply chains following what Russia calls its “special operation” in Ukraine.

US companies United Parcel Service Inc (UPS.N) and FedEx Corp, two of the world’s largest logistics companies, have halted deliveries to Russia. Deutsche Post said its DHL unit was halting inbound shipments to Russia.

Best way to hire employees in 2022: Tips to grow your business


If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, Rolling Stone may receive an affiliate commission.

Over the past few months, you’ve probably seen several articles about employers struggling to recruit in this not-quite-post-pandemic economy. Whether they’re too picky with applicants or a declining job market has decided to move into more distant positions, you may be feeling a bit perplexed right now if you’re trying to maneuver to grow your business.

Even so, it takes a combination of creativity and flexibility to recruit top talent for all your open positions, and even with a few missteps along the way, it’s easy to course-correct. You have all the technology you need at your fingertips to post your jobs and get them seen by a wide audience of potential employees, and the right tools can make it easier than ever to connect with qualified talent who is excited about the role and stand out from the competition.

It’s just a matter of knowing which strategies to use, but we’re here to help you find the best ways to hire employees, especially online. There are proven methods that can always work to find the best candidates for your vacancies, such as traditional advertising, networking events, referrals, and using job boards like ZipRecruiter. But there are a few key ways to simplify the process, and sometimes it can start before you even write the job description itself. Ensuring your social media is up to snuff and your business has a positive online presence is an underrated way to help your business succeed before you start filling positions, for example.

It doesn’t matter if you’re hiring for in-office or remote work positions, part-time or full-time employees, or if you need someone on a short-term contract, these are strategy faux pas. common recruiting practices you’ll want to avoid, plus tips that will help you grab the attention of job seekers, create a brand for your company that will leave a lasting impression, and successfully find the best candidates with the experience. most relevant to the position.

1. You haven’t developed your company’s online presence

Although you don’t have to rely entirely on the internet to hire employees in the digital age (48% of new hires are always found through employee referrals), you want to make a positive first impression if you cast that net by having a dedicated online presence for your business.

Not having an up-to-date professional website or social media profiles at present are red flags for potential clients, so make sure your pages are both well laid out, visually and reflect the values of your company. to the best candidates. Your company profile should be complete and thorough on employer review sites like Glassdoor, and all of your company information should be consistent across all of your social media profiles (the tone of your copy should also be consistent). If you’re not sure how your public perception is viewed, check out employer reviews and comments on Google and Glassdoor.

2. You’re not posting on the right job boards

You shouldn’t rely solely on social media ads and your company’s website to fill your vacancies. It’s easy to improve your chances of finding the best candidates for your jobs by posting on top job boards like ZipRecruiter.

You also won’t have to manually post your jobs to multiple individual job boards. Simply create and publish your job offer on ZipRecruiter using one of their customizable templates, and with just one click, the platform will automatically send it to over 100 top job boards. With this increased visibility, you are more likely to find the most qualified candidates in a shorter time frame.

That being said, you should not underestimate the potential that social media recruiting can have on your business. Using social media as a tool not only allows you to engage more one-on-one with potential candidates and express the qualifications you seek, but also to share job postings where more passive job seekers might meet them.

Sharing jobs is also much easier for job seekers on social media, who can easily forward the listing to someone they know even if they are not interested in the position itself. same. It’s also a great way to boost your business’s online presence, as we mentioned earlier. By sharing newsletters, blog posts, and photos of your office, you can showcase your company culture and give potential candidates a better idea of ​​your company values.

4. You don’t use sponsored job postings

When you’re competing with thousands of job postings posted online every day, your posting visibility can drop if you’re not creative. That doesn’t mean you have to constantly repost the same job, but you want to make sure your ad stands out, and one way to do that is to post sponsored jobs. These will often show up in a better search position or more often than regular listings, so you’ll find high-quality candidates as soon as possible.

You can use ZipRecruiterthe “TrafficBoost” tool from to give your job posting an extra boost, including increased placement and visibility on their linked job boards. You’ll also be sure to get more views, as the tool will promote the post until it receives the number of views you’re aiming for (100-300 views per post), or up to 30 days. .

5. You skim resumes without reviewing them carefully

Sifting through hundreds or thousands of resumes from job seekers across the country can be daunting, and it’s hard to know how to narrow them down without missing someone who might turn out to be the best candidate for the job. . You can use tools on job boards that filter your received applications by education, years of experience, relevant qualifications, etc. to make the process a little easier.

For example, ZipRecruiter use a powerful matching algorithm and AI technology to create instant matches between your ads and the right candidates. It uses information about a job seeker’s skills (such as education, skills, and experience) to connect all kinds of businesses, including yours, with millions of potential employees currently on the Web.

How Retail Embraces Modern Marketing


Patrick Aronson (Westcon-Comstor)

1 credit: Westcon-Comstor

Often referenced but rarely understood, in-channel marketing has long been a contentious issue among partners, distributors and sellers – a swirling pool of money disappearing down the ecosystem hole on a yearly basis.

On paper the supply chain is in sync, but in practice the problem goes deeper than the old adage that “half the money I spend on advertising is wasted, the problem is I don’t know which half”.

Vendors rely on outdated practices and complex procedures while partners remain entrenched in the traditional belief that technical expertise and word-of-mouth alone are enough to acquire net new customer logos. In the middle, distributors are desperately trying to combine the best of both worlds to create a cohesive strategy that can deliver a strong return on investment.

A bit stereotypical and harsh assessment perhaps, but stripping the rhetoric, marketing remains the soft underbelly of the tech channel.

For Patrick Aronson, recently appointed chief marketing officer at Westcon-Comstor, the path to building a modern marketing organization begins at the data point.

“How do you capture it, store it, secure it, analyze it, and ultimately leverage it for growth?” asked Aronson, also speaking in his capacity as executive vice president of Asia Pacific.

Representing “nearly all” of the top 50 cybersecurity, networking and cloud vendors worldwide, in addition to thousands of VARs, systems integrators and managed service providers, the distributor is currently located at a crossroads of valuable information. in the channel.

“We are in a unique position,” he acknowledged. “We have spent so much time and money over the past five years to deploy a fully integrated, single, global platform, we have a treasure trove of data at our fingertips.

“My goal as CMO is to develop new ways to use this data to help our partners – channel partners and suppliers – drive growth through new customer acquisition or better adoption methodologies. “

In theory, such an approach leads to increased levels of partner success, cited as a key priority for Aronson going forward.

“For a modern marketing distributor to drive partner success, we need to use digital automation tools and processes to quickly move the channel – and sometimes the vendor – towards adopting a subscription methodology. and service,” he said.

Aronson assumed the additional role of CMO in early February, responsible for leading global marketing strategy and a division home to 130 employees worldwide, supported by a strong focus on analytics, marketing automation and partner success.

Continuing in his current role as Executive Vice President for Asia Pacific, Singapore-based Aronson will also retain overall responsibility for business performance in Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Korea, in Australia and New Zealand.

“I know firsthand from our partners that they rely on us to deliver the right tools, processes and structure at scale so they can adapt their business models to deliver recurring value to each of their customers,” added Aronson.

Priority to the success of partners

For Aronson, partner success is one of the distributor’s top priorities in 2022, with a revamped marketing strategy key to driving market growth in the months ahead.

“Partner success is at the heart of our traditional customer value proposition,” he noted. “It is the culture, expertise and mindset of our employees that have made our suppliers and distribution partners successful for over 35 years. Partner Success is also the transformative new methodology, digital tools and data-driven processes we use to drive customer success through the channel to end users.

Assessing both the regional and global landscape post-pandemic, Aronson referred to an “accelerating” pace of change from a business model perspective as customers revise their purchasing practices in favor of subscription.

“This creates immense opportunities but also puts significant pressures on the whole ecosystem,” he explained. “For channel partners, moving from a resale model to a service or subscription model is a major challenge that places immense pressure on nearly all established systems and legacy partnerships.

“In response, we provide an established Workflow Methodology – Solution Management Lifecycle [SLM] — that helps partners succeed in software as a service [SaaS] world where adoption models are critical to success.

Such a shift also forces partners to re-evaluate vendor alliances and areas of specialization, as well as billing and transaction platforms and sales commission models.

“Marketing is perhaps the most impacted, as the new models reflect the shift from a one-offer to a customer success-focused approach,” Aronson noted. “This means ongoing discussions and customer interfaces require a systematic, marketing-driven, data-driven focus with some level of marketing automation.”

On the other hand, Aronson said vendors also face a similar challenge in transforming business models, especially in the context of a two-tier ecosystem.

“Vendors are often further removed from the end user and their data is even less accurate,” he added. “We can solve these challenges with data and analytics to help partners achieve more, backed by scale and processes to help transform existing marketing focus areas.”

To achieve the goals set, Aronson recognized the importance of people, including the task of finding strong talent, retaining top performers and developing future potential in 2022 and beyond.

“Restrictions on immigration and labor movement during the pandemic across Asia-Pacific – combined with the rise of the hybrid work industry, cloud migration, proliferation of cybersecurity and digital transformation – have placed us in the enviable position of constantly seeking more talent to support our growth,” he said. “There is definitely a lack of talent in our industry, we must therefore be extremely sharp in our programs for recruiting, retaining and developing people.”

Increased investment

Looking to the future, Aronson remains “optimistic” about the opportunities materializing across Asia-Pacific as businesses emerge from the shadows of COVID-19 to launch transformation plans.

“COVID-19 attached like a spike protein to all of the pre-existing transformational events that were already in motion and catapulted them forward with almost lightning speed,” he observed.

“This includes the shift to hybrid cloud, world-eating software, and the growth of SMBs, as well as e-government modernization, rising cyber threats, and demand for skilled security experts. The list is long, but despite the challenges, as the world recovers from the pandemic, partners face great opportunities. »

In an effort to capitalize, Westcon-Comstor has enhanced the capabilities of its solution portfolio through a “hand-picking” process of selected vendors to meet custom customer needs. This includes expanding alliances with Cisco on the Comstor side of the business, alongside Westcon-specific Palo Alto Networks, F5 Networks, Splunk, Pure Storage, Tenable, Juniper Networks and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The distributor has also entered into new agreements with Broadcom, Z-scale and Arubawhile building DevOps and DevSecOps expertise through Hashi Corp., checkmarx, Mirantis (Docker) and SumoLogic.

“Second, we have further developed our centralized support capabilities around Partner Success, which includes enhancements to our Partner Success Center in New Zealand,” said Aronson. “This provides regional concierge services to partners migrating to the cloud.”

Meanwhile, the distributor’s new Kuala Lumpur Technical Center (KLTC) provides Tier 1-2 support capabilities to partners in the region specific to cybersecurity, enabling vendors to move up the value chain by putting the focus on managed and professional services offerings.

“Finally, our new Singapore Center of Excellence operates as an advanced cybersecurity and hybrid cloud demo lab that is available to our partners across the region who need assistance in running white-label demos and proofs. concepts with end users,” said Aronson.

The final piece of the puzzle centers around the continued development of Partner Success Propositions to help Partners scale beyond traditional resale.

“This includes our flexible financing solution which offers the ability to convert purchases from traditional vendors into subscription models or as a service,” he said. “Our smart request service provides access to our data analytics platform to help understand market opportunities that may exist within customer bases.”

Misinformation can harm action on climate change


The recent report on actions and non-actions taken by Facebook now Meta, on climate change misinformation posts on its platform has reignited the debate about the impact of falsehood on climate change initiatives. Facebook is accused of failing to take appropriate action on its global platform against lies posted by its members on the world’s most visited social networking site. A recent report by the London-based non-profit Center for Countering Digital Hate states in its analysis that Facebook misled investors in its efforts to tackle climate change. The watchdog insists the social media giant failed to label half of the posts as inaccurate or misleading that could have been directed to Facebook’s ‘Climate Science Information Center’ for accurate information on the change climatic. Facebook, in its defense, said it works hard to provide reliable information on climate change through its information center.

Data giant Google took action against climate change misinformation on October 7, 2021, when it banned misinformation video ads on its YouTube video app, saying it will “ban ads and monetization content that contradicts a well-established scientific consensus around the existence and causes of climate change”. This effectively ended the revenue stream of Youtubers who created videos containing misinformation about the dangers of climate change. This ban will only be effective if Youtubers post videos themselves, if they are backed by powerful climate change opponents, then revenue is not their priority or need. attempted to respond to the slew of distorted climate change tweets aimed at the COP26 climate change conference that was held in Glasgow. Twitter said it would program a new policy to “pre-bed” helping to create an authentic narrative about climate change.

A disturbing tribe of climate change deniers exist around the world who deny claims of global warming and the impending danger of climate change. This tribe uses major social media sites to call on their followers to ignore the call to action against global warming. Often, vested interests fuel climate change denials in countries leading to pressure against policy changes and pledges on climate change. Los Angeles-based news portal Breitbart, New York-headquartered Washington Times, The Federalist, Newsmax, and Russian state media, The Patriot Post, The Daily Wire, and The Western Journal are the main opponents of climate change that impact opinions around the world. A group called the Clexit named after him on Brexit aims to push for global control through climate hysteria. The group advocates for countries to withdraw from the Paris Agreement and other UN treaties on action on climate change. These outlets help create a false narrative about the global warming conspiracy theory.

Around the world, social media users and newspaper subscribers often fall for fake news that includes misinformation about Covid-19 and its vaccines, advocacy of the falsified concept of flat earth and possible existence aliens, and the invasion of planet Earth. The damage caused by misinformation in today’s digital age about climate change parallels the damage caused by greenhouse gas emissions on earth. The skewed perception of the reliability of climate change projections and impending danger has attempted to neutralize opinions about the threat to the planet. Powerful lobbies are using the propaganda of climate change deniers to advance their agenda to make a quick buck today rather than worry about a dangerous future. Any change in policy aimed at playing and pleasing climate change skeptics has the most direct impact on planet Earth.

Governments, Google, social media giants and news outlets should urgently flag harmful false information and not allow any video or post to remain online for longer than a maximum of one hour. Videos and posts should not be allowed to be shared, liked or retweeted in the meantime. Politicians must resist lucrative deals that attempt to slice the planet for today’s gain at tomorrow’s expense. Policymakers and think tanks need to push businesses and the media to be more responsible for their actions on climate change, sustainability and emissions. Action must be taken against these think tanks that encourage opponents of climate change and help spread misinformation about the real dangers of climate change.

Climate change deniers blame inaccurate data, high projections, doomsday conspiracy, promotion of nuclear energy, political agenda, conspiracy by renewable energy companies, etc. For the future of the planet, climate change supporters and deniers must come together to solve the problems and agree on a common minimum agenda. A healthy planet is our gift and our legacy to the next generation who will inherit the world as we preserve it.

Russia steps up censorship campaign and pressures tech giants


As Russia attacks Ukraine, authorities in Moscow are stepping up a campaign of censorship in the country by crushing some of the world’s biggest tech companies.

Last week, Russian authorities warned Google, Meta, Apple, Twitter, TikTok and others that they had until the end of this month to comply with a new law requiring them to set up legal entities in the country. The so-called Disembarkation Law makes companies and their employees more vulnerable to the Russian legal system and the demands of government censors, legal experts and civil society groups.

These measures are part of a Russian pressure campaign against foreign technology companies. Using the prospect of fines, arrests and the blocking or slowing down of internet services, authorities are pushing companies to censor unfavorable content online while keeping pro-Kremlin media unfiltered.

Apple, TikTok and Spotify have complied with the landing law, according to Russian internet regulator Roskomnadzor, and Google has also taken steps to do so. Twitch and Telegram did not. Meta, Facebook’s parent company, and Twitter complied with some parts of the law but not others.

The situation puts tech companies in a bind, caught between their public support for free speech and privacy and their work in countries ruled by authoritarian leaders. This forced them to weigh the availability of their services in Russia against leaving altogether.

Increasingly, the companies are under pressure from Ukrainian officials and US lawmakers to limit their involvement in Russia. Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister has asked Apple, Google, Netflix and Meta to restrict access to their services in Russia. Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat of Virginia and chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, sent a letter to Meta, Reddit, Telegram and others, urging them not to let Russian entities use their platforms to confuse about of the war.

Businesses face conflicting demands from around the world. Censorship issues that were once isolated to China, home to perhaps the world’s most restrictive internet, have spread to Russia, Turkey, Belarus, Myanmar and elsewhere as some of them try to build a more tightly controlled web.

For Russia, censoring the Internet is not easy. While China has built a series of filters known as the Great Firewall around its internet, the Russian internet is more open and American technology platforms are widely used in the country. To change that, the Russian government has come up with new technical methods of content blocking, which it used last year to limit access to Twitter.

Russia is now expected to step up pressure on tech companies as authorities try to control reports of the war in Ukraine. Russians have taken to Facebook, Instagram and other foreign social media to criticize the conflict, stoking fears of a crackdown on the platforms.

On Friday, Roskomnadzor said it would restrict access to Facebook by slowing down traffic. The regulator said the social network interfered with several pro-Kremlin outlets.

Nick Clegg, senior politician at Meta, noted the company had refused Russian demands to stop independent fact-checking of four state-owned media outlets. The company said it would ban Russian state media from running advertisements on the social network.

Twitter, who said it was pause ads in Ukraine and Russia, said on Saturday that his service was also restricted for some people in Russia.

The crackdown “is an attempt by the Russian government to increase control over these companies and online content in Russia,” said Pavel Chikov, a human rights lawyer in Russia who specializes in censorship cases. “The Russian government will push them, step by step, to go further in this direction.”

Western companies and organizations are just beginning to sort out their ties with Russia in light of sanctions designed to economically isolate the country. Energy companies are grappling with the possibility of reduced oil and natural gas supplies. Food producers face a potential shortage of Russian and Ukrainian wheat. Even European soccer clubs have dropped sponsorships from Russian companies, with a major league game moving from St Petersburg to Paris.

The situation is particularly difficult for technology companies. Apple and Google control the software on almost all smartphones in Russia and have employees there. YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok are popular sites used to get news outside of public media. Telegram, the messaging app that started in Russia and is now based in Dubai after disputes with the government, is one of the country’s most popular communication tools.

The new disembarkation law is a move by the Kremlin to counter attempts by tech companies to downplay their physical presence in Russia. The law, which took effect on January 1, requires foreign websites and social media platforms that have more than 500,000 daily users to register as legal entities in the country, with a local manager. It also requires companies to create an account with Roskomnadzor and create an electronic form for Russian citizens or government authorities to contact companies with complaints.

Establishing a greater local presence makes companies vulnerable to government intimidation, human rights and civil society groups have warned, leading some to call it the ” hostage law. Last year, Russian authorities threatened to arrest Google and Apple employees to force them to take down an app created by supporters of jailed Russian opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny.

“The Russian government would like to have embassies of these companies in Russia,” said Aleksandr Litreev, who has worked with Navalny and is the chief executive of Solar Labs, a maker of software to circumvent online censorship. “They would like to have a way to pull a lever to manipulate information and how it travels across the internet.”

In November, the government listed 13 companies that must comply with the new landing law: Meta, Twitter, TikTok, Likeme, Pinterest, Viber, Telegram, Discord, Zoom, Apple, Google, Spotify and Twitch.

On Feb. 16, a Roskomnadzor official said companies that fail to comply by the end of the month will face penalties. In addition to fines and possible shutdowns or slowdowns, penalties could disrupt ad sales, search engine operations, data collection, and payments, as required by law.

“For companies that have not started the ‘disembarkation’ procedure, we will consider the issue of the application of the measures before the end of this month,” Vadim Subbotin, deputy director of Roskomnadzor, told the Russian parliament, according to Russian media.

Meta said that while taking steps to comply with the new disembarkation law, it has not changed the way it reviews government requests to remove content. Apple, Google and Twitter declined to comment on the law. TikTok, Telegram, Spotify and the other companies targeted did not respond to requests for comment.

Human rights and free speech groups have said they are disappointed that some of the tech companies, often seen in Russia as less beholden to the government, are complying with the law without public protest.

“The ulterior motive behind passing the D-Day Act is to create legal grounds for extensive online censorship by silencing remaining opposition voices and threatening freedom of expression online,” Joanna Szymanska, an expert on Russian internet censorship efforts, told civil society Article 19. London-based social group.

Mr. Chikov, who has represented companies such as Telegram in cases against the Russian government, said he met with Facebook last year to discuss its policies in Russia. Facebook executives have sought advice on whether to pull out of Russia, he said, including cutting off access to Facebook and Instagram. Instead, the company complied with the laws.

Mr. Chikov urged tech companies to speak out against Russian demands, even if it results in a ban, to set a broader precedent in the fight against censorship.

“There have been times when big tech companies have been leaders not only in terms of technology, but also in civil liberties and freedom of expression and privacy,” he said. “Now they behave more like large transnational corporations securing their business interests.”

Install Google Cloud SQL Proxy on Ubuntu 22.04 | 20.04


The Cloud SQL Auth Proxy works by running a local client in the local environment. Your application communicates with the Cloud SQL Auth proxy using the standard database protocol used by your database.

It uses a secure tunnel to communicate with its companion process running on the server. Each connection made through the Cloud SQL Auth proxy creates a connection to the Cloud SQL instance.

Although the Cloud SQL Auth proxy can listen on any port, it creates outbound or outbound connections to your Cloud SQL instance only on port 3307. The user does not need to configure SSL because, by default, the Cloud SQL Auth proxy provides secure access to your instances. .

Few advantages: Uses IAM permissions and database authentication; Encrypts traffic to and from the database using TLS 1.3 with 256-bit AES encryption.

Steps to Install Google Cloud SQL Proxy on Ubuntu 22.04 | 20.04

1. Requirements

Linux Ubuntu
Enable Cloud SQL Administration API on GCP
User must provide Cloud SQL Auth proxy with Google Cloud authentication credentials
A valid user account and password for the database
Terminal access
A non-root user with sudo rights

2. Run system update and install wget

Use the APT package manager and run the system update command to make sure your Ubuntu Linux is up to date. Also, with this setup wget tool.

sudo apt update && sudo apt install wget

3. Download Cloud SQL Authentication Proxy

Well, this tool is not available in Ubuntu 22.04 and 20.04 default repository. Therefore, we have to manually download the CloudSQL Authentication Proxy.

TTCM) targets criminal trolls and


ORO VALLEY, Ariz., Feb. 25 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tautachrome Inc. (OTC: TTCM) today outlines the direction and focus of its Integrity Defense activity aimed at combating the criminality of stock market trolls targeting the company’s securities.

The Company understands that there are internet platforms of all kinds that allow anyone to talk or shout comments of any kind. And we consider that to be good. But we also believe that the power to comment does not include the right to criminally troll, that is, to hide behind pseudonyms and make false and misleading statements intended to harm others.

As we announced earlier this week, the company has implemented an integrity defense activity aimed at curbing stock market troll attacks on the company’s securities and has reactivated Michael Nugent, our former head of integrity. advancement, to direct the activity.

Mr. Nugent spoke today about the company’s direction and focus on this business.

“For a public company like Tautachrome, trolling is serious business,” Nugent said. “We know from first-hand experience that trolls will use certain investment forums to make false and misleading statements for the express purpose of manipulating the price of the stocks they trade, which has the effect of stealing money. money in the accounts of other investors who are unaware of the manipulation.

Nugent went on to say, “Criminal trolling increases exponentially when owners of investment forums not only allow such trolling, but go out of their way to protect trolls from exposure. InvestorsHub is an example of an investment forum whose policies protect stock trolling. We witness the trolling of our own business by pseudonymous individuals on this forum, and find the forum’s reluctance to act to remedy the illegal behavior very troubling. »

“My information shows,” he said, “that InvestorsHub is a wholly-owned subsidiary of London-based ADVFN PLC, whose CEO, Clem Chambers, has for years been responsible for the forum’s reluctance to curb fishing. criminal trolling on their InvestorsHub. Chambers allowed pseudonymous trolls to post false and misleading information about publicly traded companies to gain visits and clicks to sell advertising, yet carefully shielded his own company, ADVFN PLC, from such a troll attack. .

“Today we learned,” Nugent said, “that Chambers was removed from ADVFN PLC yesterday and replaced by new CEO, Mr. Jonathan Mullins. This could be good news for the integrity of the InvestorsHub forum. So today, we’re calling on Mr. Mullins to tear down the wall that InvestorsHub has erected to protect criminal trolls.

The Society intends to adapt to the changes that come our way and we fully understand that the public environment is constantly changing. But the securities laws we follow are stable and don’t change that way. They need to be enforced so that criminal trolls are held accountable.

Dish Network Sharing launched Skyward today. here’s why


What happened

Shares of Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) soared on Friday as analysts digested Thursday morning’s earnings report. Shares of the satellite broadcaster and wireless network operator were trading up 10.8% at 1:40 p.m. ET, down from a peak gain of 11.4%.

Image source: Getty Images.

So what

Dish reported fourth quarter results broadly in line with analysts’ expectations. Revenue fell 2% year over year to $4.45 billion, and earnings fell from $1.24 to $0.87 per diluted share. Dish lost 273,000 TV service subscribers in the quarter and ended the period with 8.2 million satellite customers plus 2.5 million Sling TV media streaming customers.

The stock initially fell 5.5%, but rallied to close Thursday’s trading session with a 6.8% gain. The rebound began on the earnings call, as CEO Erik Carlson said the wireless business Dish acquired from Sprint and T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) two years ago should “take off” this year. A 5G network with a cloud-based connectivity backbone is operational in Las Vegas, and Dish is rolling out similar solutions in other major cities.

Then, several analysts posted their analyzes of this report early Friday morning. Several of them reduced their target prices on Dish shares, but that didn’t always indicate a bearish attitude. Reduced target prices remained well above current stock prices in most cases. In particular, Wall Street heavyweights JP Morgan gave Dish a double upgrade from underweight (should hurt) to overweight (should perform well) while lowering its price target from $42 to $40 per share. This significant upgrade provided the rocket engines behind Friday’s price gains.

Now what

Like other analysts, JPMorgan sees value in Dish’s conversion from satellite broadcasting to the 5G network. The Vegas market was touted as a significant advantage, and the planned launch of additional 5G coverage before June 2022 should add to that advantage. Although JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick is “somewhat skeptical” of Dish’s ability to deliver a better or more cost-effective 5G experience than other major network operators, the huge portfolio of wireless spectrum licenses of the company should form the basis of a solid, long-term. business.

So, in light of this Q4 report, it looks like you can treat Dish as an increasingly pure bet on 5G wireless networks over the next few years. Meanwhile, the stock trades at just 7x earnings and 5.3x free cash flow, making it far more affordable than T-Mobile and comparable to other wireless heavyweights.

What is a no credit check loan?


No credit check loans are loans where the lender does not check the borrower’s credit before approving and lending loans. These types of loans can be tempting if your credit is poor and you don’t qualify for other products. However, no credit check loans can be risky and are generally not well regarded as they tend to come with extremely high interest rates.

What is a no credit check loan?

A loan without a credit check is a loan that does not require a credit check. You might be tempted to apply if you don’t have the best credit and think you can’t be approved for other types of financing products. Here are some examples of loans without a credit check:

Payday loans

Payday loans are small, short-term loans that you can repay the next time you get paid. In most cases, you will pay them back within two to four weeks. These no credit check loans are designed to provide you with quick cash to hold you over until your next paycheck.

Installment loans without credit check

With no credit check installment loans, you borrow a lump sum of money and repay it over time via fixed monthly installments or installments. They usually come with larger loan amounts than payday loans and can be used to cover just about any expense.

Auto title loans

Auto title loans are secured loans that use your car as collateral. You give the lender title to your car in exchange for borrowing money. The amount you can receive will depend on the value of your car. Most lenders will let you drive your car while you pay off the loan. If you default on a car title loan, the lender can repossess your vehicle.

Secured credit cards

You cannot be approved for a traditional unsecured credit card with bad credit. This is where secured credit cards come in – some issuers don’t do credit checks for them. When you sign up for a secured credit card, you make a cash deposit which is usually equal to your credit limit. The credit card issuer will take your deposit if you do not pay your bill.

Co-signer loans

If you don’t qualify for a loan on your own, ask a trusted friend or family member to be your co-signer and apply for a loan with you. You’re more likely to be approved and earn a great interest rate if you have a co-signer with good or excellent credit. Just be sure to repay the loan so you can improve your credit and not leave your co-signer responsible for the payments.

Why are no credit check loans a bad idea?

Although no credit check loans may seem like a great option, you should avoid them if possible. Their sky-high interest rates lead to high payments, which can land you in a cycle of debt and wreak havoc on your credit. You may find that a loan without a credit check does more harm than good for your long-term financial situation.

Many no credit check loans are considered predatory loans because the exorbitant interest rates can trap people in a cycle where they will never be able to repay the loan. Some lenders also add additional fees that make it even more difficult to get your finances back in order. Many no credit check loans turn out to be scams. Finally, since this type of loan does not build your credit, you lose the possibility of having your payments contribute to increasing your credit score.

Can I get a loan with bad credit?

You don’t have to turn to a no credit check loan if you have bad credit. Fortunately, there are many lenders who accept borrowers with bad credit. They may look at factors other than your credit to determine if they should approve you for a loan, such as your income, work history, and debt-to-equity ratio.

What are the alternatives to loans without credit check?

There are several alternatives to no credit check loans that can give you the funds you need, even if you have bad credit or no credit. Here is a brief overview of them.

Bad credit lenders

A number of lenders specialize in providing money to borrowers with bad credit. If you go with a bad credit lender, you may be able to get a relatively low interest rate for someone with less than stellar credit.

credit unions

Compared to banks, credit unions often have lenient requirements. As long as you are a member, you may be able to get approved for a loan from a credit union, even with bad credit. Credit unions will likely look at your overall financial situation in addition to your credit. In addition, the interest rate they can charge is capped at 18%.

Alternative payday loans

Alternative payday loans (ALPs) are small, short-term loans offered by some federal credit unions. They are generally more affordable than traditional payday loans and come with longer repayment terms. If you apply for PAL, a credit union will ask you for proof of your income to ensure that you can repay your loan.

Secured loans

Secured loans are backed by collateral, which is something valuable that you own. Collateral can be physical property such as a house, car or boat. It can also be a cash deposit. Since secured loans are less risky for lenders, you can get approved for a loan with bad credit. The caveat, however, is that the lender can seize your collateral if you fail to repay your loan.

The bottom line

If you have bad credit or no credit and need to borrow money, do not resort to a loan without a credit check. Instead, explore the alternatives available to you and think about the pros and cons of each. By choosing an alternative like a loan from a lender with bad credit, you can save on interest and significantly reduce the overall cost of borrowing.

What to know about student loan consolidation


Our goal at Credible Operations, Inc., NMLS Number 1681276, hereafter referred to as “Credible”, is to give you the tools and confidence you need to improve your finances. Although we promote the products of our partner lenders who pay us for our services, all opinions are our own.

Federal student loan consolidation can simplify the repayment process. (iStock)

When you consolidate federal student loans, you combine multiple student loans into one convenient loan. Consolidation can help simplify the repayment process and may even result in a better interest rate, which can save you money (just be aware that this is not guaranteed).

The CARES Act, which was passed in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, suspended the repayment of federal student loans. This pause has been extended until May 1, 2022. But with that deadline looming, you might want to consider student loan consolidation to simplify your return to reimbursement.

Let’s take a look at how federal student loan consolidation works, the benefits of consolidation, and what to do if you’re a private borrower.

If you have private student loans, you can compare student loan refinance rates in minutes with Credible.

What is student loan consolidation?

Student loan consolidation involves combining multiple federal loans into one direct consolidation loan with a new interest rate that is a weighted average of the interest rates on your other loans. Ideally, you’ll get a lower interest rate than you were paying before, but that may not be the case. Now, instead of having separate student loans to juggle, you can focus on paying off just one.

How does student loan consolidation work?

Managing multiple federal student loan repayments can be stressful. Consolidating them into one loan with one monthly payment can simplify the repayment process.

When it comes to federal student loan consolidation, you can get a longer repayment period, which can lower your monthly payments. You also have the option of converting any variable rate to a fixed interest rate loan, which means your rate will never change. Additionally, if you consolidate other types of federal loans in addition to direct loans, you can access additional income-based repayment plans and loan forgiveness programs, such as public.

Consolidation vs Refinancing of Student Loans

The term “consolidation” only refers to federal student loans, and although you can sometimes get a lower interest rate through consolidation, you may not. You cannot consolidate private student loans into a direct consolidation loan.

For private student loans, you can refinance to combine them (or a combination of federal and private loans) through a private lender. With refinancing, the lender will pay off your current loans and give you a new loan, which may come with a new repayment term and, ideally, a lower interest rate.

While you can refinance a combination of private and federal student loansyou should think carefully before refinancing federal loans into a private loan – if you do, you will lose access to federal protections such as forbearance and loan forgiveness.

What to Know About Consolidating Federal Student Loans

If you only have federal student loans, consider whether you qualify to consolidate them and if it’s the right decision for you.

When to Consider Federal Student Loan Consolidation

If you have multiple federal student loans from different loan servicers, consolidating them into one loan can make it easier to manage your debt. If you’re struggling to repay your federal student loans, getting a longer repayment term through consolidation can lighten your financial burden each month. But you’ll likely pay more interest in exchange for extending your repayment period.

Eligibility for Federal Student Loan Consolidation

To benefit from the federal student loan consolidation, you must have federal student loans in repayment or in grace period. You generally cannot consolidate an existing direct consolidation loan, but you can if you are able to add an additional qualifying loan into the consolidation.

If you have a defaulted loan and want to consolidate it, you must first make three consecutive monthly loan payments or agree to repay your new direct consolidation loan under one of four focused repayment plans. on income. If your wages are garnished or collected due to a court order due to a delinquent loan, you cannot consolidate the loan until the wage garnishment is lifted or the judgment against you was not canceled.

  • Subsidized direct loans
  • Direct unsubsidized loans
  • Direct Loans PLUS
  • FFEL Consolidation Loans and Direct Consolidation Loans (only under certain conditions)
  • Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans
  • Unsubsidized and Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
  • PLUS loans from the Federal Family Education Loans Program (FFEL)
  • Additional Student Loans

  • Loans for disadvantaged students
  • Federal Insured Student Loans
  • Guaranteed student loans
  • Direct National Student Loans
  • National Defense Student Loans
  • Parent loans for undergraduate students
  • Auxiliary loans to help students

How long does it take to consolidate federal student loans?

The federal student loan consolidation process is quite quick. You must complete the application in one session, which usually takes less than 30 minutes. Once your direct consolidation loan is disbursed, you will start paying it back within 60 days. Your loan officer will tell you your first due date and you will make payments according to the repayment plan you chose when you applied for your direct consolidation loan.

What to know about refinancing private student loans

You can also refinance if you have a combination of federal and private student loans and want to combine them into one loan.

Credible, it’s easy to compare student loan refinance rates from various lenders.

When to consider refinancing a private student loan

Not sure if refinance your private student loans is the right way to go? Here are some situations where refinancing a private student loan may be right for you:

  • You have good credit. If you have a good credit score, you can potentially qualify for a lower interest rate than you currently have, which can save you money over the term of the loan.
  • You are not satisfied with your repayment period. Refinancing can give you the flexibility to choose a repayment period that better suits your needs. You can opt for a longer repayment period to lower your monthly payments, or refinance for a shorter term to save money on interest.
  • You are a parent who has taken out loans on behalf of your child. When you refinance, you may be able to transfer the loans you took out to your child, as long as you both agree.

Keep in mind that if you plan to refinance a combination of private and federal student loans, you will lose the federal protections useful for any federal student loan. For example, if you refinance a federal student loan into a private loan, you will lose access to temporary loan payment relief during approved periods, such as deferment or forbearance. You will also lose access to any income-based repayment plans or loan forgiveness programs.

Eligibility for refinancing a private student loan

When you apply for private student loan refinance, lenders consider factors such as your income, work history, and credit score. Each lender has their own unique qualification standards, so you’ll need to do your research and find the best private lender for your unique situation.

First, Nokia announced the launch of its new Intelligent RAN Operations solution designed to manage the growing complexity of 5G networks through machine learning. The framework and its underlying products will enable mobile operators to improve 5G network quality, efficiency and subscriber experience while reducing operational costs, energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

Additionally, Nokia’s Intelligent RAN Operations implements several machine learning features that help operators manage network density and complexity, and enable automation of routine network management tasks, with greater ability to detect, categorize and resolve network problems in real time.

CSPs will be the main beneficiaries of the Mobile World Congress

Apart from this, Nokia has also announced new managed service offerings to help communication service providers (CSP) provide a better customer experience and realize faster returns on their 5G investments by better utilizing the intelligence of their network data.

The first offering is Operations Transformation, a multi-year service focused on helping CSPs improve the productivity and agility of their operations through cloudification and automation.

The second new managed operations offering is called Operations Intelligence, which uses AI-powered analytics using massive datasets to precisely pinpoint issues, with the end goal of enabling service providers to communication to increase business outcomes such as Net Promoter Scores (NPS) and returns on their 5G investments. NPS serves as a barometer of the likelihood that a customer will recommend a provider or service to another user.

Both services are designed to follow a CSP’s unique digital transformation journey and deliver tangible results in a results-based business model, providing flexibility and control. The micro-operations service catalog includes use cases ranging from coverage and capacity optimization to predictive analysis of anomalies in complex network settings to prevent customer service degradation and leverages the library of Nokia AVA AI use cases.

“We know that customer expectations have changed, so our goal with these new services is to help CSPs achieve business results by leveraging the intelligence of their networks. The methodology can follow the unique digital transformation journey of our clients. Additionally, the catalog approach is a further step in our strategy to deliver a comprehensive Software as a Service (SaaS) portfolio,” said Friedrich Trawoeger, Senior Vice President, Cloud and Cognitive Services at Nokia.

Scaling up private 5G and Wi-Fi

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) will extend enterprise connectivity with unique capabilities for private networking both 5G and Wi-Fi enabling new enterprise and industrial applications from edge to cloud. Pre-integrated with major vendor radio access capabilities, the private 5G solution can be deployed quickly, flexibly, and as a service with HPE GreenLake.

As enterprises increasingly envision the promise of a personalized 5G experience for low latency, dedicated capacity, extended range, and security across campuses and industrial environments, while complementing existing Wi-Fi networks. Although 5G far exceeds Wi-Fi in extended coverage, Wi-Fi has the edge when it comes to cost-effective indoor connectivity. HPE’s private 5G solutions have been designed to work in tandem with Aruba’s Wi-Fi networks using technologies that automate 5G and Wi-Fi roaming.

The private 5G market is growing rapidly, including new market entrants such as large-scale cloud providers. Telcos are looking for easy ways to deploy private 5G networks to meet growing customer expectations for the connected edge. HPE recently announced that OPTAGEa Japanese service provider, leverages HPE’s private 5G solution for its local 5G testbed implementations.

Meanwhile, Fujitsu announced that it has successfully developed new software virtualized radio access network (vRAN) with support for standalone 5G (SA) and will offer it for verification by telecom operators from March 2022.

By leveraging Fujitsu’s quantum-inspired artificial intelligence and digital annealing technologies to optimize computing resources, the newly developed vRAN technology addresses one of the main challenges of conventional vRANs, delivering high performance with low power consumption. of energy. Fujitsu estimates that this approach offers the potential to reduce overall system CO2 emissions by 50% or more compared to conventional base station systems by 2025 while providing users with stable, high-quality communications.

Going forward, Fujitsu plans to deploy this vRAN technology globally, providing robust and innovative support to telecom operators as they strive to reduce their carbon footprint and ultimately help realize a more sustainable society. Fujitsu will share more information about its vRAN technology at Mobile World Congress.

Strengthen the automation ecosystem

Another big tech company, NEC Corporation, has also launched an automation ecosystem to bolster its 5G xHaul transformation services, bringing CSPs simplified operations, cost efficiency, and faster time to value for their multi-vendor networks. xHaul 5G Transformation Solutions and Services are part of NEC Open Networks, a suite of solutions for realizing the real benefits of truly open 5G networks.

For CSPs aspiring to build momentum in the 5G era, there is a looming demand to gain network flexibility and agility to meet diverse user needs. NEC’s turnkey automation services are part of xHaul 5G Transformation Services powered by an open ecosystem of industry-leading network and software vendors, initially including Accedian, Juniper Networks and UBiqube.

Announcements from these big tech companies are just a few of the highlights from Mobile World Congress. With several other big tech players also attending the event, consumers and businesses can expect more solutions in the days to come.

Dear Therapist: I have a love-hate relationship with social media – News


Making sense of the world we inhabit

By Prateeksha Shetty

Published: Thu 24 Feb 2022, 20:55

I have a love-hate relationship with social media. It’s too time-consuming but at the same time, I can’t get out of it. How can I better handle this? — Naieka R.

Dear Naieka, most of us have an ambivalent relationship with social media. Although we find it meaningless most of the time, we keep coming back to scrolling and engagement, simply because social networking services (SNS) are built that way! They are rigged to keep us hooked. I find that disabling notifications for these apps is key to reducing online activity. What can also help is limiting yourself to a few apps and deleting accounts, thereby reducing the frequency of use. Limiting screen time to certain hours or hours of the day is another important strategy.

You may also need to write down why you go online – we generally tend to use apps when we’re bored or restless, sometimes to avoid tasks that trigger anxiety or to try and improve our mood. Find out what your primary trigger is and replace it with substitute behavior along with recommended strategies. For example, hobbies can easily replace screen time or simple chores that otherwise pile up can take priority, after which you can reward yourself with scrolling.

We can also start or end our day on social media, seeking validation and announcing ourselves to the world; if this is something that resonates with you, then you may need to do some introspection and examine a larger context of how life is, in general, for you. Perhaps social media is more exciting and fulfilling than our mundane lives, which begs the question: what life do you envision to bridge the gap between virtual reality and real life?

Arista integrates network detection and response into the network


Arista Networks Inc. today announced that it is integrating Network Detection and Response or NDR capabilities into its network switches.

With an upgrade to EOS, Arista’s operating system, the 720XP series of switches will be integrated into the NDR. The NDR capabilities, which Arista gained through its recent acquisition of Awake Security, will give organizations greater visibility, automated threat hunting, and risk mitigation without having to deploy additional network security products. In the past, organizations would have had to deploy a packet broker or agents on endpoints.

Arista’s NDR is powered by its Autonomous Virtual Assistant or AVA, an artificial intelligence-based feature that has two components. The first component, AVA Sensors, can be deployed as a standalone appliance, cloud workload and now in campus Power-over-Ethernet or PoE switches. The sensors transfer data in deep packets to the second component, AVA Nucleus, which is offered either on-premises or as software as a service.

Given the trend towards cloud networking, some might be surprised that Arista offers the solution as SaaS or on-premises, but security and networking professionals are still divided on whether ” to cloud or not to cloud”. During a pre-briefing, I posed this question to Rahul Kashyap, vice president and general manager of cybersecurity and chief information security officer at Arista Networks.

“A lot of organizations still prefer on-premises, so it’s almost 50/50 compared to what we’ve seen in the market,” he told me. Given that Arista deals with large enterprises and adoption of cloud networking is primarily for small and medium-sized businesses, it makes sense for the company to give customers choice. Forcing them in one direction would likely have limited its addressable market.

Device identification and threat detection is done entirely by AI – a major advantage of this technology. The switches themselves have software with built-in NDR, which identifies bad intentions and tracks all users, applications and devices. Additionally, real-time situational awareness provides the full threat landscape of an attack, allowing security analysts to make risk-based decisions.

“We identify and identify every type of device, whether it’s a Windows laptop, iPhone or ‘Internet of Things’ device,” Kashyap said. “All devices get a risk score based on their behavior.”

Historically, network providers have used NetFlow for packet analysis, but this only provides header information. Indeed, NetFlow was designed as a troubleshooting protocol for network operations. The AVA sensor information analyzes the entire packet through layers 2-7, then processes it before sending it to the core. For AI, more context leads to better analytics, which should lead to faster detection and response.

This not only benefits security operations, or SecOps, but also network operations, NetOps for short. NetOps typically struggle to track the footprint of devices on a large campus, especially IoT devices. I expect to see a surge in connected “things” as companies prepare for hybrid working. Businesses will seek IoT endpoints that help keep users safe while in the office, which will lead to the deployment of temperature scanners, QR code readers, environmental sensors, new collaboration endpoints and more.

Arista’s NDR provides device visibility and threat detection in one place, continuing the trend of bringing SecOps and NetOps closer together. It will be interesting to see how this product is received by Arista customers. While there’s a lot of talk about network and security convergence, I still see a lot of resistance to it, especially in large enterprises, where most of Arista’s enterprise revenue comes from. It makes sense for companies to do this, especially in a world that is becoming increasingly cloud and mobile centric, but these trends take time and many companies have continued to separate these functions.

Additionally, while Arista has danced around security for a while, its go-to-market effort has been to sell security to its network engineering audience. It’s arguably the first product that could be purchased and deployed by security operations, but since it’s built into a switch, that could pose a challenge. I think, as the world becomes network-centric, this is the right strategy for Arista, but there could be bumps as network and security teams figure out how to work together.

The shift to cybersecurity will be essential for Arista to maintain its growth rate. Last week the company set a solid rhythm and restart to close out 2021. Arista is approaching $3 billion in annual revenue, and while there is still plenty of networking market to tap into, the cybersecurity industry is massive and could provide a significant engine of growth.

Moreover, as Mike Wheatley pointed out in his earnings article, the only flaw in Arista’s business was the decline in its gross margins from 65% to 64.3%. Typically, security products have gross margins well above this range. This will make any success here accretive to both revenue and profit.

Irving-Based Cysiv Sees Record Growth as Demand Grows for SOC-as-a-Service » Dallas Innovates


These days, even grandmothers sharing recipes on their PC are worried about cybercrime. Their stakes can be low – hackers have better targets than chicken pot secrets. But the leaders of Fortune 50, 500 and 1000 companies? It’s a whole different story. As cyberattacks escalate around the world, they are losing sleep fearing they are the next target and the next world title.

That’s where Irving-based Cysiv comes in. Its goal is to help these leaders get a good night’s sleep, knowing that someone is providing proactive threat detection and managed cybersecurity.

Cysiv saw record growth in 2021

Cysiv today announced that it has seen record growth in 2021 as demand for Security Operations Center (SOC) as a service continues to accelerate. The startup doubled its SOC-as-a-Service customer base and grew revenue by more than 100%, with the strongest growth in the United States, Europeand the Middle East and Africa Region.

As a result, Cysiv has been named the winner of the Tech Titans 2021 Fast Tech Award, recognizing the fastest growing technology companies in north texas. Cysiv tops the list of the other 20 north texas-technology companies with revenue growth of 1,848% over three years.

Partha Panda, CEO and co-founder of the company, told Dallas Innovates that Cysiv is “actively growing our team, both locally and globally.” His startup currently has 160 employees worldwide, with its global headquarters and staff of around 30 located in Las Colinas.

A spin-off from Trend Micro

Cysiv was launched in 2018 within Trend Micro through a partnership with HITRUST, a data protection standards development and certification organization. Since becoming an independent company, it’s made headlines, including a $26 million Series A funding round we talked about in 2020.

Cysiv is a SOC-as-a-service innovator. According to the company, it combines all the elements of a proactive, threat-seeking security operations center with a managed security stack for hybrid cloud, network, and endpoint security.

As a key differentiator, Cysiv combines its cloud-native next-gen SIEM with a data-centric approach, and offers a team of experts who operate as a “seamless extension” of a company’s own security operations center. client company.

Growing client list

The company’s client list now includes Fortune 50, 100, 500 and 1000 companies. businesses, digital health, mobile commerce, manufacturing and consumption.

“We are very proud to have been entrusted to so many companies and to operate as a seamless extension of their SecOps teams, as a true strategic security partner,” Panda said in a statement. “The rapid growth we are experiencing is validation of our unique service offering, which combines a data-centric approach, our own cloud-native next-generation SIEM platform, and a response-centric SOC model.”

Get ahead of the bad guys by quickly detecting the “real threats”

Cysiv’s most important task is to detect and respond to “real threats”, i.e. high-fidelity malicious threats that have been verified by humans, before they can lead to a breach. disruptive or harmful.

Who is behind the threats? It could be “a cybercriminal or a nation-state trying to break into their network, steal data, [or] disrupt their operations,” Panda said.

The challenge: “IT/security teams are inundated with inaccurate alerts that could be threats, but there’s not enough information to know for sure without tedious additional investigation,” Panda said. “Companies lack the technology, staff, or expertise to do this important work properly. »

In contrast, Cysiv, through its SOC-as-a-service, “quickly and systematically finds the real threats that these security teams really need to focus their time on,” Panda said. “The real threats are confirmed malicious threats, the “needles in the haystack”, that customers absolutely need to be aware of early and act on. »

Respond to threats through data, technology and people

Cysiv helps businesses respond to threats using data, technology and people.

“Security is increasingly a big data issue,” Panda said. “Cysiv excels at understanding the value of detecting different sources of data” across a customer’s IT environment and from a wide range of sources, “and then processing and enriching the data from a way that makes them quickly and fully useful to our automated threat detection process.

“We’ve developed our own SaaS security platform that automates and accelerates the process of filtering all of this data in near real-time, analyzing it, correlating it with other threat intelligence we have, and applying a range of detection techniques to identify threats that warrant human investigation,” Panda added.

But all roads lead to the people behind the platform.

“Our security and threat experts use our platform to then investigate these high-fidelity indicators to identify true threats, which they then escalate to our client’s security team to remediate,” said Panda. “Or some customers ask us to respond directly to the threat to prevent a successful data breach or attack.”

It is by bringing all this together that Cysiv helps its customers to reduce their risks.

“Our SOC-as-a-Service combines data, technology and experts to provide better detection and faster response to real threats, and we deliver it all as a subscription service,” Panda said. .

Helping businesses with cloud-first strategies

A world of data living in the cloud has brought great benefits to businesses and consumers. But it is also a breeding ground for cyber-dangers.

“The vast majority of businesses today have adopted or adopted a ‘cloud first’ strategy,” Panda said. This means that all of their apps, from Microsoft Office to Salesforce to Backoffice and many more, live in the cloud, along with the apps they build as a core service, like the SaaS platform of a fintech company.

“It is increasingly difficult to detect and respond to real threats that target these cloud applications,” Panda said. “Cysiv, as a cloud-focused company, is uniquely suited to help these companies quickly respond to the need for 24/7 security monitoring.”

Cysiv is not big on false alarms

When Cysiv tells customers there’s a problem, there’s usually a problem. The company says that in 2021, 85% of all cases passed on to customers globally turned out to be “genuine threats”. Less than 15% of Cysiv cases were false positives, according to the startup, comparing favorably to industry standards of 40-80%.

For many customers, Cysiv claims that it actually generated less than 5% false positives.

Once a real threat was detected and confirmed by the platform as a critical or high potential security incident, Cysiv says it took less than five minutes to respond, either by initiating a pre-response measure -approved, manual or programmatic on behalf of the client. , or telling the client how to deal with the threat.

Customers weigh

Cysiv offered customer quotes to back up its case:

“Cysiv is an integral extension of our team, providing us with collaborative and highly responsive 24/7 threat monitoring and security management services,” said Scott Moser, senior vice president and chief security officer. information security at Saber, the Southlake-based travel technology company.

Ja Schmidtglobal IT director for Gorillas, a food delivery company based in Berlin, Germany, said his company chose Cysiv “because we needed a security partner who shared similar DNA to ours. : bold, fast, built for growth and born in the cloud.”

“Cysiv’s approach to delivering a modern SOC as a service, combining a next-generation SIEM platform focused on data science and automation, with a strong collaborative working relationship and a predictable billing model, is refreshing and unique,” said Dagmar Ostermann-HeldDirector of Information Security for Western Reserve Hospital in Ohio.

Treat a long list of pain points

As it grows, Cysiv seeks to satisfy more customers by tackling a long list of issues, from data breaches and compliance issues, to cloud and IoT security, “alert fatigue” and the continued need to improve Sec-Ops to go further. reduce the risk.

And of course, the biggest pain point of all: the “real threat” that is just around the corner.

Death of 28-year-old ByteDance employee fuels ongoing controversy over overwork at Chinese tech companies


News of the sudden death of a 28-year-old employee at ByteDance, the company behind apps such as TikTok and Douyin, went viral on Chinese social media on Wednesday, with many blaming the death on frequent overtime demands. by technology companies.

The incident was first mentioned in a post on Maimai, a career and social networking platform, on Tuesday evening. The message mentioned that “another” ByteDance employee had passed away and that the man had a wife who was two months pregnant.

Maimai is popular with tech workers in China and verifies their employment status. He also offers anonymity on his forum.

ByteDance released a statement which was shared in an internal letter with its staff in China. The company said the deceased employee was named Wu Wei and worked as a computer vision algorithm engineer. In the note, ByteDance said Wu was still resuscitated in an emergency room at 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Additionally, the company said Wu went to the company gym around 6:00 p.m. Monday. The note described Wu feeling dizzy after an hour of exercise. He was then taken to hospital around 7:30 p.m. ByteDance says Wu was still in critical condition and was resuscitated at 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, more than a full day after he was hospitalized.

Chinese media first reported the contents of ByteDance’s letter to its staff. An engineer from ByteDance’s pre-delivery inspection department confirmed its validity to KASIA.

ByteDance said it would “accompany” Wu’s family to help with administrative procedures related to the incident.

Wu is the latest in a line of technicians who apparently worked to death. During the Lunar New Year holiday in early February, a 25-year-old Bilibili staff member died, suspected the cause was overwork. A 22-year-old Pinduoduo employee collapsed and died after leaving work last year, leading to an investigation. Moreover, a star engineer from TiMi Studio Group, a subsidiary of Tencent Games, jumped from the roof of an office building in Shenzhen, where Tencent’s game department is located.

In August 2021, the Chinese government declared 996 working arrangements – starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 9:00 p.m., six days a week, plus overtime – to be illegal. This practice has drawn criticism from state media and controversy among the general public.

This push has gained even more recent momentum, with the ongoing post-pandemic recovery prompting Thai companies to increasingly prioritize innovation and investment in favor of cloud spending. Exceeding global forecasts, Thailand’s spending on cloud infrastructure is expected to grow by 28.2% in 2022 alone, with infrastructure as a service (IaaS) expected to see the highest growth figures as Thai businesses expand their infrastructure and migrate complex workloads to the cloud. to better enable a remote work culture.

Deutsche Telekom: Telekom at MWC Barcelona 2022

  • Deutsche Telekom at MWC Barcelona: Focus on Technology for People

  • “Angels” by Robbie Williams rearranged in the style of Beethoven

  • Deutsche Telekom showcases 5G network innovations

  • Deutsche Telekom and RTL: 5G simplifies mobile TV production

MWC Press Conference with Claudia Nemat, DT Board Member for Technology and Innovation.

How are people benefiting from digitization? Deutsche Telekom answers this question at MWC Barcelona. Powerful networks and human-centric digital applications: At MWC, Deutsche Telekom shows how it shapes digital transformation for and with people. “Human first – digital now. Many of Telekom’s important innovations for our customers and partners are network innovations. Only with a forward-looking pioneering spirit and a flair for good digital solutions that we can lead the way,” Claudia Nemat said at the upcoming press conference. of the largest networking technology fair in Europe. “We create digital experiences tailored to the needs of our customers. This is what we show in Barcelona. And we talk about how we can use technology to create a more sustainable and digital daily life for many people.”

Mobile live production of TV content on smartphones, innovation in network slicing, borderless connections for the Internet of Things and a new digital home networking experience: Deutsche Telekom is working with strong partners to show how customers, l ndustry and the craft sector benefit from innovations and network applications. The company thus puts another exclamation point on technological leadership at the MWC in Barcelona.

Robbie Williams and Beethoven’s AI

For Deutsche Telekom, digital responsibility is an integral part of digitization. This is why the company repeatedly focuses on the challenges of new technologies. For example, how they interact with us humans. How creative can artificial intelligence be, for example? Deutsche Telekom is now exploring this question with global star Robbie Williams. The Briton has already sold more than 80 million records during his incredible career. Today, the music legend takes on a special challenge with the Deutsche Telekom team. This joins the “Beethoven X” project: Based on the AI ​​experts used to complete Ludwig van Beethoven’s 10th Symphony for the first time, Williams’ hit “Angels” has been rearranged in the style of the classical master. In combination with works such as the Moonlight Sonata, an unpublished version of the ballad was created. The exclusive preview will take place on February 28 at the MWC in Barcelona.

Deutsche Telekom and RTL: the broadcast truck for your pocket

5G is more than speed. An important element of the new mobile communication standard is the so-called network slicing. Slicing provides virtual networks operated in parallel, depending on the application scenario. This enables it to respond flexibly and efficiently to the respective requirements. In Barcelona, ​​Deutsche Telekom demonstrates how businesses in various industries are benefiting from the versatile capabilities of the new network. An example is the mobile production of live video content in the autonomous 5G network. Deutsche Telekom is testing this with media company RTL Deutschland. In the future, high-quality, television-ready videos can be transmitted reliably and flexibly over 5G connections, even with smartphones. Journalists stream data-intensive video feeds live from the scene using network slicing. The particularity: the division of the network technically ensures the necessary bandwidths. This applies even to heavily used mobile communications cells. In this way, the partners want to bring mobile television journalism to a new technological level. In other words, the smartphone will become a broadcast truck for your pocket.

Deutsche Telekom and Ericsson innovate in network slicing

Whether broadcasting, logistics or automotive telematics: reliable connections are important for customers who have to rely on low-latency data connections for mission-critical applications. And this also applies to business sites located around the world. Deutsche Telekom and Ericsson Demonstrate Groundbreaking Proof-of-Concept Implementation: Partners establish connectivity with guaranteed quality of service (QoS) between Germany and Poland via end-to-end 5G network slicing. With an SD-WAN solution from Deutsche Telekom, the data connection can be flexibly controlled and managed via a customer portal. The solution ensures that different service parameters in the network can be operated across national borders. At the same time, network resources are allocated flexibly. This approach is presented for the first time in the world. It is especially beneficial for global enterprises that operate latency-critical applications across different international locations.

T IoT for borderless connections for the Internet of Things

What do the connected car and the international supply chain have in common? In short: they transmit positions or status data around the world by radio via the Internet of Things (IoT). Until now, it was very complex to build global IoT solutions. This required negotiations with several suppliers. Each with different contracts and their own billing and support platforms. Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile US are now simplifying global IoT connectivity for businesses. Together they launch “T IoT”. This is a new offer of IoT solutions. It covers all the necessary components of an IoT connectivity solution. From procurement, contracts and invoicing to customer support. Even platform management and global network service level agreements are included. And all based on seamless network connectivity. This covers the full range of networking technologies. So narrowband as well as 5G. Mainly multinational collaborations benefit from simple and flexible IoT solutions.

Fun in digital everyday life – new home networking experience

Extend the shopping list to the spouse at the supermarket? Check if the children are still at home? Turning down the heat when spring suddenly wakes up from the city park? Smart devices and smart functions can be controlled with an app. The most important place in the world is clearly our home. Today, it takes more than a fast internet to make it more comfortable and sustainable: our lives at home are inextricably linked to the digital world. Deutsche Telekom picks up on this trend with the Magenta Zuhause App. This creates a new digital home networking experience: personalized, comprehensive, secure and seamless. Deutsche Telekom offers a holistic everyday experience with digital apps for the whole family. All household members can access the app individually and create to-do or shopping lists, for example. Thus, nothing is forgotten and everyone keeps track of everything. Interaction with TVs, routers and home network components ensures reliable high-speed connectivity. And it brings a lot of entertainment as well as many partner products and services.

At MWC Barcelona, ​​​​Deutsche Telekom presents a selection of products and services for the home network. These show visitors how they could shape their daily lives in the future. Among them are use cases already available as commercial products in 2022, such as WLAN Comfort packages. The goal is the better connectivity with routers and mesh repeaters. Also: smart services for a relaxed family life and personalized solutions for parents, children, families and friends.

Making technology sustainable – for all of us

How can technology become more energy efficient to help us fight climate change? To answer it, it is a question of adapting and thinking outside the box. Deutsche Telekom’s goal: to digitize with speed and clear direction and become less dependent on individual vendors and technologies.

At MWC, the company is showcasing what is already possible in Deutsche Telekom’s green network today. Deutsche Telekom will show how network solutions can also be adapted to the future needs of people, businesses and society. Another key topic concerns solutions that pave the way for business customers to enter the circular economy. Or solutions that extend the life of smartphones, tablets and laptops to stop wasting resources.

Technology that charms and disarms

Sensible technology protects the climate and the environment while focusing on the needs of people, businesses and society. At MWC Barcelona, ​​​​Deutsche Telekom shows that technology can also surprise, charm and even disarm. To this end, there is an interactive exhibition called “Human Immersive Experience”. Thanks to it, visitors turn hateful tweets into creativity and color. Anger is followed by joy and pleasure. In this way, Deutsche Telekom sends a clear signal against hate speech and advocates for a hate-free network.

Magenta Keynote

Stay tuned. Claudia Nemat will be live from Barcelona with the ‘Magenta Keynote’ on February 28 at 2:00 p.m. Already from 12:30 p.m., expect a surprise show around Artificial Intelligence as well as the exclusive preview of the newly arranged hit by Robbie Williams “Angels”. Expect the panel discussion with Robbie Williams, “Angels” co-writer Guy Chambers, Matthias Röder (project manager) and Claudia Nemat.

The missing piece of Apple’s ecosystem isn’t a foldable phone or an AR headset


Dan has been writing about all things Apple since 2006, when he started contributing to the MacUser blog. He is a prolific podcaster and the author of the Galactic Cold War series, including his latest, The Nova Incidentcoming in July 2022.

Who is Kat Cat West Video Clip Photos Leaked Online Reddit Twitter Link


Nowadays, some pretty big video streaming sites like OnlyF, Reddit bring content which is always hugely discussed among everyone. Because whenever something hits the scene on social media sites, it causes a stir among everyone, especially those who know those faces. Something similar was recently reported with Kat Cat, whose photos or videos are making headlines on social media and heightening everyone’s curiosity to get the essential details about her. For that, they couldn’t ignore any vital information from her, so below you could watch everything.

It is reported that investigators immediately paid attention to the half-naked body in the freezing Morrowind, which looked a bit suspicious, and later its identification came to light. These photos are in the limelight on social networks with the immense reactions of the users because it had already remained the subject of enormous discussions. Later, the relevant department did everything but due to the intensity of the incident, they couldn’t do anything, because it was quite scary which was not expected by anyone else, and became the reason for the painful loss.

Who is Kat Cat West?

According to the exclusive reports or sources, early in the morning of January 13, 2018, in a quiet suburb of Calera, Alabama, first responders discovered Kathleen West, popularly known as a 42-year-old wife and mother, whose unexpected death took place. in such a spontaneous way, that never gave those standing near her a chance to get her admitted to the nearest medical center so that she could get the proper treatment and survive, but the accident was tragic enough to hurt his body in such a worse way, even his head was affected more than any part.

If later reports are to be considered then during the incident his head was affected a lot as it separated from his body in this manner which shocked everyone especially the concerned department which is came to help her. But now, since these photos appeared on social networking sites, everyone was shocked. So, here we have conferred such information which has been taken from other sources, and so, still, some details are yet to be revealed. So when something happens, we will let you know for sure, or you can search internet sites for more.

When to pivot your product and a story of two revenue calls


Welcome to The TechCrunch Exchange, a weekly newsletter about startups and markets. It is inspired by the TechCrunch+ daily column from which it takes its name. Want it in your inbox every Saturday? Register here.

Oh yeah, y’all, it’s the weekend and it’s a long one here in the US because we have Monday off. As you read this, I’m – I hope – napping on the couch with three scalloped dogs around me, all four of us drooling while we doze off.

Corn! First! There’s a lot to do, so let’s dive into a startup pivot from earlier this week and, yes, let’s talk some money.

Jukes, pivots

The esports world is a pretty fragmented place. Built on different games, forums, tournament series, platforms, chat apps, and websites, it can be legit to figure out what’s going on even in your favorite game. So, Juked.gg decided to create a centralized information hub for all things esports in 2020.

The company had some early success, lifting a seven-figure cycle that we covered in early 2021. But according to the co-founder Ben Goldhaberthe service enjoyed a period of rapid growth, which it described as “up and right” in chart form, before seeing its number of active users level off last year.

What happened? According to Goldhaber, who also goes by the “FishStix” gamertag, Juked ended up serving the top 1% of esports fans, but didn’t reach a wider audience. So, the fledgling company did the smart thing to ask its users about its service and what they thought about it. From those conversations, Goldhaber said users have raised issues endemic to esports such as community toxicity, spamming, and hot takes.

So Juked decided to pivot slightly and build the social network that its users were indeed clamoring for – a less toxic place to be an esports fan.

The product launched on Thursday after a period in a closed alpha after testing it with around 750 users before making it more generally available.

According to information from AppAnnie (now Data.ai, apparently), the service ranked among iOS users in the US this week, but only in the social networking category. We’ll check back with the company in a few months to see how the downloads go.

Big questions remain, including how the service intends to tackle toxicity on a large scale – I had to agree to a fairly strict set of terms to sign up. Juked intends to use human moderation with AI in the future and requires users to register with a phone number. All good ideas, but untested for the large-scale enterprise.

I dig what Juked worked on because I’m an esports fan. But I’m not exactly in the market for a new social network either. Let’s see how the juke in the startup market can help it score more points. (And probably fundraise, as it’s been a year since its crowdfunding round, so we wouldn’t be shocked if the company strives to raise more money in the coming quarters.)

A story of two earnings calls

This week brought with it another wad of tech company earnings calls. And as always, we’ve had our eyes on the market for clues as to what’s in store for startups.

The bulk of our work is here, in our dive into the importance of forward-looking guidance for tech companies today. Lagging results appear to be much less important to investors than what they see going forward. So when Amplitude got crushed by public market investors, we took notes. There were other companies that took similar hits, including Meta, so don’t think we’re pointing fingers at the recently publicized Amplitude. (It was straight-listed last year, remember.)

But there was a flip side to the coin, namely Appian’s revenue. The low-code automation company has been a quieter public market story than most tech debuts. That’s not a problem, mind you; its CEO, Matt Calkins, told me as much this week when discussing the company’s results.

How? ‘Or’ What? It goes back to Calkins’ definition of what innovation is, and it’s not just about building something. Telling TechCrunch that his company has long been an engineering-led organization, he told us that just doing something cool isn’t enough. If the company does not Marlet a new feature, sell it and have it used, then it hasn’t really innovated. Innovation, he said, is an experience, not a product. The end result of innovation, he added, is a customer testimonial of a new feature – when someone will record and say a new thing is really good. Which forces people to, well, know something exists so they can give it a whirl.

I like his point of view. This helps explain why much of the so-called innovation in the blockchain world feels less like real innovation and more like creating a collection of hypotheses; yes, some of the more esoteric Web3 products on the market today will have a real impact, but most are more coding tricks than useful tools.

A little more before I let you go. The staffing crunch that companies are feeling in the United States isn’t just driving up the cost of hiring, it’s helping companies like Appian. The company sees a demand from customers to further automate their work because employees don’t want to. And disgruntled employees are bouncing back.

Finally, Appian’s growth has recently accelerated. And he had an earnings report that didn’t lead to a stock price crash, but a Gain. Going back to our entry point for this conversation, this is the bar companies need to cross today to get a few hundred basis points of market cap extension. It’s a much tougher market than a few quarters ago. That’s why, I think, the IPO window has been kaput for quite some time yet.

Hugs and I hope your weekend is relaxing!


Charlotte Radiology Reports Week of Patient Data Breach


A major Charlotte medical service provider recently suffered a week-long data breach in which certain patient information was stolen, “including a very limited number of patients’ social security numbers,” it said. company officials on Friday.

In a statement, Charlotte Radiology officials said they found no evidence of “fraud or abuse” following the theft and were notifying each patient whose information was taken during the breach from 17 to December 24.

The statement did not specify how many people were affected.

On Dec. 24, the company “identified a security incident that impacted the systems holding our patient information,” the statement said.

“We immediately initiated our incident response process, notified law enforcement and initiated an investigation with the assistance of a forensic company,” officials said. “Within days, we were able to quickly contain the incident and resume serving patients.”

The investigation revealed that “an unauthorized party gained access to our network and took copies of some of the documents from our system,” according to the statement.

The documents included patient information such as their “name, address, date of birth, health insurance information, medical record number, patient account number, doctor’s name, date(s) of service, diagnosis and/or treatment related to radiology services,” said Charlotte Radiology.

Golden Gate TSB release allows developers to configure policies for their apps


Tetrate has announced the general availability of Tetrate Service Bridge (TSB), Golden Gate version.

This latest release combines API Gateway, web application firewall (WAF), and service mesh capabilities into a single management plane, delivering a unified cloud-agnostic application connectivity platform.

By unifying these features, TSB brings centralized governance and decentralized enforcement to application networking, which is essential for implementing zero-trust security on legacy and modern workloads.

TSB’s Envoy-based application networking layer eliminates the distinction between north-south and east-west traffic: it’s just application traffic. Developers can now apply features traditionally only available in an API Gateway to any part of their application topology, from edge to workload. The Golden Gate TSB release includes API Gateway and a full set of out-of-the-box API governance features.

“As enterprises evolve their cloud-native application environments, robust application connectivity and networking becomes both extremely valuable and increasingly complex,” said Brad Casemore, vice president of research. , data center and multicloud networking at IDC. “Quite paradoxically, application networking is most valuable when it’s invisible – simple to provision and operate, and unobtrusive, yet elastically scalable and secure in highly distributed environments, without getting in the way of developers and their applications. With the latest release of Tetrate Service Bridge, Tetrate addresses this need by bringing greater simplicity to centralized control of edge connectivity to workloads spanning multiple clusters, clouds, and compute resources.

Gaining access and knowing how to configure application-specific network and security policies can be difficult for developers and ultimately impacts productivity. At the same time, network and security teams lack the means to enforce policy mandates and ensure their implementation. This disconnect between access and knowledge leads to non-compliant networking and inconsistent policy enforcement, which in turn leads to security breaches.

With the Golden Gate release, TSB enables developers to configure policies for their applications without needing to learn the complexities of new technologies like Envoy and Istio, while still being able to harness their power.

“As a leading provider of educational technology, our flagship product, ABCmouse Early Learning Academy, is the leading digital education program for young children in the United States,” said Jeremy Farber, senior vice president of infrastructure at Age of Learning. “We appreciate how the Golden Gate version of Tetrate Service Bridge helps us provide security at the application level, not just at the network level.”

TSB is also now available as a fully managed service hosted by Tetrate, in addition to self-managed deployment. TSB’s managed service significantly reduces the initial investment required to start using Zero Trust architectures, encourages experimentation and further reduces complexity for customers. The managed service can be used for pilot projects, smaller projects or for all projects, depending on the needs of each client.

“Application architectures are increasingly distributed in nature,” said Varun Talwar, CEO and co-founder of Tetrate. “When coupled with the need for multicloud infrastructures, application networking, and security policies, management becomes a complex issue. TSB elegantly simplifies this challenge with its management plane, a layer that ties the execution system to users and teams. Companies can implement controls for regulatory requirements with confidence and maintain multiple independent teams on the same infrastructure without shared outages.

The release of Golden Gate follows a very successful year in which more than 20 Fortune 500 organizations in financial services, healthcare and retail adopted the original version of TSB, increasing the number of clusters by 10 times under management from one year to the next. Customers provided valuable feedback on key features of the new release, including:

  • A unified application connectivity platform to deploy and manage WAF, GW API, service mesh and output controls
  • A clean, declarative app developer experience for configuring app traffic and security controls, where they can be defined once and applied anywhere
  • A single management pane to manage application traffic across heterogeneous environments including Kubernetes, virtual machines, bare metal, on-premises, and cloud servers
  • Multitenancy: Creating tenants for teams within an enterprise to define granular access control and editing rights and maintain zero trust as the norm; audit changes to shared services and resources from start to finish
  • Next-gen API governance out of the box with just enough built-in API gateway functionality for ease of use
  • Deploy WAF with blessed configuration wherever needed, from edge to workload, not just on a single firewall
  • Deployment and lifecycle management of service mesh (Istio and Envoy) on multiple Kubernetes clusters
  • Application-Level Segmentation: Secure Applications, Not (Just) Networks

Second Homewood police officer files lawsuit, alleges discrimination and racism


Former police dispatcher Charity Howard has filed her second complaint in three years against the Homewood Police Department for allegedly violating her sick leave, not giving her an adequate place to breastfeed and retaliating against her for filing a lawsuit against the department due to her running on February 10, 2022.

Howard was one of two officers to file a racism lawsuit on February 10, the other being HPD officer Victor Sims II, who accused the HPD of downgrading him from detective to patrolman in because of racism and discrimination.

While Howard was on sick leave due to a tumor discovered on her spine, her supervisor, Steve Sparks, told her he wanted her back to work before her designated time off to give two more dispatchers non-emergency medical leave, the lawsuit alleges, with the two dispatchers both being white.

According to the lawsuit, Howard complained to Spark’s supervisor, Lt. Keith Peterson, about the alleged double standard between African American and Caucasian officers. Peterson, allegedly, did not deny the double standard and said he would look into the matter, but Howard never heard from him, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit also referenced another dispatcher who was allegedly escorted by police off the premises for asking to leave work due to illness while Caucasian officers requested inconsequential leave.

In May 2019, Howard filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint, then a lawsuit, against the department and was questioned about the complaint by a “Homewood representative”. in late July 2019, according to the lawsuit.

That previous lawsuit was dismissed by Federal Judge Staci Cornelius in March 2021.

Howard again complained to Police Chief Tim Ross and Internal Affairs Sgt. Doug Finch (now lieutenant) in an email about how she was treated the previous week on September 18, 2019, according to the lawsuit, but was allegedly accused of “illicit social media“.

According to the lawsuit, Ross and Finch were referring to a video Howard posted on social media one to two years prior about breastfeeding, which resulted in her being reprimanded by Ross.

The lawsuit noted that Howard was on a break and had her badge covered so she would not be identified as an employee of the police department or the city of Homewood. Comparisons were made in the lawsuit between how Howard was treated regarding his social media posts as opposed to white police officers and staff. .

Weeks after Howard was reprimanded, according to the lawsuit, Sparks posted a Facebook meme “depicting an old Caucasian man holding a rather large handgun and a red cap reading ‘Right Wing Fanatic,’ captioned ‘Too Old. to Fight, Too Slow to Run, I’ll just shoot you and be done with it. “”The meme was not taken down until six months later, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit also cited a Finch meme posted on Facebook in March 2020 in which the caption read, “WE USED TO PACK G**KS (an offensive term for someone of Filipino, Vietnamese or Korean descent) LIKE YOU FOUR DEEP IN KOREA. YOU USED FOR SANDBAGS. The caption was a quote from the Clint Eastwood movie, “Gran Torino.”

According to the lawsuit, Finch was not reprimanded and the post “hung around” for three years until a lawsuit filed by Howard led to the video being taken down.

The lawsuit also referenced videos uploaded to social media by HPD officer Cpl. Jon Newland in June 2020, who posted what Howard called “incendiary and racist ‘rap’ videos on social media”. According to the lawsuit, Newland was in uniform in at least one of his videos and “celebrated ‘Valhalla’ – Norse ‘paradise’ and a common trope of white supremacy; said: ‘With a rebellious cry I will prevail;’ promised that, as someone who wears “black and blue,” “around your neck, I flex this choke;” and included the chorus: “Empathy is what I feel, but I’m always ready to kill.”

Newland was suspended for three days and demoted from corporal to officer by Ross after his videos were made public by the media, but were not finalized until July 2020, according to the lawsuit. Newland is no longer with HPD.

In July 2020, Howard was fired, following a situation in which she made comments online during a Homewood vigil for George Floyd, according to the lawsuit. Howard responded to a comment made by a Facebook commenter who said the vigil aides violated a “protest law,” according to the lawsuit, to which Howard replied, “What ‘protest law’ are they breaking?” The right to freedom of assembly?

Howard also made comments online against Newland’s social media posts but, according to the lawsuit, they were “restrained and positive.”

During Howard’s dismissal hearing, Ross and Finch accused Howard of not cooperating with her investigation of the incident and of not checking in with Finch during the suspension, which the lawsuit says she didn’t. was not required to do so.

A Homewood police spokesperson would not comment on the allegations in Sims’ lawsuit. sergeant. HPD’s John Carr said it was departmental policy not to comment on ongoing litigation. Carr sent copies of both the judge’s dismissal of the former lawsuit, as well as the upholding of Howard’s dismissal by the Jefferson County Staff Council, which sided with the HPD and concluded that she had violated department policy.

In the Staff Council report, the police department said Howard violated department policy by using social media during his shift. They cited her “refusal” to cooperate with the investigation into her social media posts as the reason Peterson recommended she be fired.

Howard, in her lawsuit, claimed she was not opposed to answering questions, but was opposed to speaking with Finch, against whom she had already filed a grievance.

The Homewood Star will continue to follow this story as it develops.

Advantages and disadvantages of student loan consolidation


Consolidating your student loans involves combining some or all of your federal loans into one direct consolidation loan. By doing this, you will end up with one monthly payment instead of several with different interest rates.

Consolidation is a great way to get your monthly payments under control, and in some cases it’s a necessary step to access federal student loan repayment and forgiveness plans. However, there are times when consolidation might not be the best idea.

Benefits of Student Loan Consolidation

Consolidating student loans is a smart step for many federal borrowers; here are some of the benefits:

  • Potentially lower monthly payments: Direct consolidation loans have a repayment term of up to 30 years, as opposed to the standard repayment period of 10 years. This longer repayment term can make your loans more manageable by reducing your monthly payment.
  • One payment per month: Instead of making multiple student loan payments on your federal loans, you’ll make one each month. While this decision helps you avoid late payments, your credit score could also increase over time.
  • Access repayment plans: Some older student loans, such as FFEL loans and Perkins loans, are not eligible for certain income-based repayment plans or the Public Service Loan Relief (PSLF), unless they be consolidated. The combination of these loans in a direct consolidation loan would open access to these programs.
  • Retain federal benefits: While some borrowers may consider refinancing their loans with a private lender as a way to combine multiple loans, choosing to consolidate instead ensures that you retain federal benefits such as forbearance, repayment contingent on income, and COVID-19 relief.

Disadvantages of Consolidating Student Loans

Although consolidation can be a useful tool, there are still some drawbacks to be aware of before making the decision:

  • Pay more interest over time: Choosing to pay off your loan over 30 years will lower your monthly payment but cost you more in interest over time. You will also be in debt for a longer period of time, which could affect other aspects of your finances.
  • No interest rate cut: The main appeal of refinancing is that you can often find a lower interest rate than what you are currently paying. With consolidation, your interest rate is calculated as the weighted average interest rate of the loans you consolidate, rounded to the nearest eighth of a percent. Because of this, your interest rate might be slightly higher than what you are currently paying.
  • Losing progress to federal pardon programs: Consolidating your loans could cause you to lose any progress you’ve made on federal programs like the PSLF or an existing income-based repayment plan.
  • Interest is added to your balance: If you have outstanding interest on the loans you are consolidating, this interest will be added to your main balance when consolidating. Interest will then accrue on this higher balance.

Should I consolidate my student loans?

Consider loan consolidation carefully. Whether or not to consolidate your student loans depends on the type of loan you have and your financial situation.

You need to consolidate if:

  • You have old FFEL or Perkins loans and want to get a loan forgiveness.
  • You are having difficulty keeping track of your monthly payments.
  • You have significant student loan debt.

You should reconsider consolidation if:

  • You don’t have a lot of student loans.
  • You are about to meet the requirements for a loan forgiveness program.
  • You can repay your loans quickly.

Can I consolidate my private student loans?

You cannot consolidate private student loans, as consolidation is done by the US Department of Education. However, you can refinance your private student loans, which is a similar process in theory – you’ll be swapping multiple private loans for a new loan. This could help you manage multiple payments or get a lower monthly bill.

Should I refinance or consolidate my federal loans?

One of the biggest benefits of student loan consolidation is that it keeps your federal student loans with the federal government. While consolidation doesn’t necessarily save you money, it does ensure that you retain access to things like the COVID-19 forbearance period and loan cancellation options.

That being said, some borrowers may choose to refinance instead of consolidate. When you refinance, your federal loans will convert to private loans, so you will lose federal benefits. However, refinancing could allow you to get a much lower interest rate on your loans, which could help you pay them off faster and at a lower cost.

Next steps

Before applying for a direct consolidation loan, consider what you stand to gain and lose. Once you have assessed your financial situation and decided that consolidation is the path you want to take, you apply through a online application on the Federal Student Aid website.

If you are unable to determine your next move, the Department of Education loan simulator can help you decide whether to consolidate or not. You can also run the numbers with a refinance calculator to better compare the impact on the cost of your loan.

Spotify’s Joe Rogan deal is worth over $200 million


Dealing with the crisis in the United States may have been even more complicated because Spotify’s headquarters are nearly 4,000 miles away in Sweden, where Mr. Ek, a shy advertising executive who grew up in a suburb of Stockholm, and many of the company’s engineers and senior employees are based.

Freedom of expression is a deeply held belief in Sweden. Many employees there — and in the United States — were angry when Spotify removed music by R. Kelly and XXXTentacion from playlists in 2018 for content or conduct deemed offensive, a move the company has said. quickly canceled.

Mr. Ek has made it clear that he is reluctant to take on the role of censor. “We’re not here to dictate the pitch these creators want to have on their shows,” he told employees earlier this month in a pitch first reported by The Verge, adding that “if we only wanted to create content that we all love and agree with, we will have to eliminate religion, politics, comedy, health, environment and education, the list goes on and on.

And commercially, censoring Mr. Rogan could alienate his legion of fans and set a slippery precedent with other podcasters, according to Mark Mulligan, industry analyst at Midia Research.

“It could jeopardize their future podcast strategy,” Mulligan said.

In a recent memo to employees, Mr Ek wrote that ‘voice cancellation is a slippery slope’ but acknowledged that a number of episodes of Mr Rogan’s show had been removed from the platform. . He wrote that Mr Rogan decided to remove them after meetings with Spotify executives and “his own thoughts”.

Google’s new privacy measures to help users but without impact on ad revenue


Google’s plans to phase out its advertising ID system on Android devices in favor of a system that will limit tracking and data sharing with third parties will benefit individuals but may not impact its revenue advertising to the extent that Apple’s “Ask Not to Track” feature has affected Facebook’s results given the social networking service’s heavy reliance on ad revenue.

Digital ads accounted for 43.2% of Google’s total revenue in the third quarter of 2021, according to the company’s earnings reports. Facebook, on the other hand, got 97% of its global revenue from ads in 2020, according to market research firm Statista.

The scenario in India is not much different. Google India saw 21.4% year-on-year (YOY) growth in gross advertising revenue to touch 13,887 crore, according to filings with the Registrar of Companies (RoC) in November 2021. Over the same period, Facebook’s gross advertising revenue grew 41% year-on-year in India to touch 9,326 crore.

According to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, Meta CFO Dave Wehner also said that Apple’s “do not track” feature has “caused a major dent in Facebook’s advertising business” due to its heavy reliance on advertising revenue. criticized Apple’s privacy changes, alleging it was a key reason the company lost $10 billion in advertising revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Google may not be feeling the heat as much as Facebook because the difference between Google’s recently announced privacy measures and Apple’s tracking tool is that users still have to disable tracking manually on Android, experts say .

“Google introduced a number of changes last year that allowed users to disable tracking. However, the difference here is that users had to go to settings and then disable it. However, in Apple’s case, users automatically see a standard prompt asking for consent,” explained Isha Suri, senior researcher at the Center for Internet and Society.

When considering creating a privacy-preserving operating system, the changes introduced by Apple last year should be considered, Suri pointed out. The iPhone maker introduced a clean interface for disabling tracking across multiple apps and provided users with insight into the data apps collect so they can make more informed decisions.

“It is not yet clear how the latest changes made by Google will take user preferences into account. The default should be privacy preservation rather than the other way around,” she said.

Google made similar efforts late last year when it announced it would automatically strip the advertising ID of users who opt out of personalized ads, and app developers would only receive a string. zeros instead of an identifier. The new privacy measures will phase out advertising identifiers and limit the sharing of user data with third parties. Advertising ID is used by app developers to measure app usage across apps and target them with in-app advertisements.

Google’s plans to combat intrusive advertising stem from growing criticism the company is facing for its data collection practices. Regulators in several countries, including India, are studying the business practices of big tech companies such as Google and Facebook and their implications for users and competition.

An ideal approach is to remove information that may allow personal targeting, by anonymizing and aggregating the information, according to technology and policy consultant Prasanto K. Roy.

Google groups users under broad topics of interest on their device itself, so personal preferences aren’t shared even with Google’s own servers, let alone advertisers, with its cookie replacement technology called ” Topics”.

Donald Trump shares first post on his own ‘Truth’ social media platform


Former US President Donald Trump is now sharing posts on a social media network he founded, “Truth Social”, more than a year after being banned from Facebook and Twitter. Donald Trump Jr. shared a screenshot of the former president’s first post on the social media site on Tuesday, which is expected to be posted later this month.

“Get ready! Your favorite president will see you soon,” Donald Trump Jr. posted on the new platform, which serves as the Trump Media & Technology Company’s Twitter alternative. In an interview with Newsmax, Devin Nunes, CEO of former President Donald Trump’s social media company, said it’s currently available for pre-order and will go live in March.

Truth Social is very similar to Twitter

The network is essentially identical to Twitter and allows users to follow both people and news topics. Instead of tweets, posts will be called “truths.” Following the attack on the US Capitol building by some Trump fans last year, his Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts were suspended. Following the ban, he claimed he would launch his own social networking platform to fight what he called the tyranny of big tech.

“I’m excited to be sending my first truth about TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give everyone a voice. I’m excited to soon start sharing my thoughts about TRUTH Social and fighting back against Big Tech, “, remarked the former American president in a press release published by the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG).

According to the Associated Press, Trump, who used Twitter to slam opponents and deliver his own news frequently during his presidency, emailed remarks almost as often as he had previously. According to Apple’s current App Store listing, former President Donald Trump’s new social networking platform, Truth Social, is set to launch on Presidents Day, February 21.

Additionally, users will be able to create an avatar for their profile and follow other users. Truth Social, like other social media sites, will have a “feed” which contains posts from various people that a user can follow. According to the photographs provided to the listing, the app will look quite similar to platforms like Twitter.

How does an installment loan process work at Heart Paydays?


An installment loan allows the borrower to withdraw a certain amount of money over time. The loan is then repaid in installments. Typically, installment loans come with fixed payment amounts – they don’t vary throughout the loan. However, loan interest rates may vary depending on the lender and the terms of the loan.

Examples of Tribal Installment Loans

Tribal installment loans for bad credit

Bad credit loans are great short-term cash solutions for people facing emergency expenses, but who have a very bad credit history. Lending platforms that offer these services are often not concerned with the borrower’s credit history. Instead, they only focus on whether or not they can repay their loans on time.

Tribal installment loans for bad credit

Credit score plays an important role in determining whether one is qualified for a loan. Borrowers with good credit ratings are often eligible for more loans than those with poor credit ratings, i.e. riskier applicants.

Alternatively, if you have a bad credit score, you can turn to Heart Paydays for a quick tribal installment loan for bad credit. The loan broker will connect you with a perfect loan company to solve your financial emergency needs here.

Tribal installment loans with a co-signer

A co-signer is someone who signs a loan agreement with another person. The co-signer agrees to take on the legal obligation to repay the loan if the applicant does not repay the loan on time. Additionally, the co-signer can help the applicant obtain loans on reasonable terms to reduce the lender’s risk.

Tribal Installment Loans No Teletrack

Teletrack was incorporated into the lending industry in 1989, making it a relative newcomer to the world of business-to-business financial systems. Its main function is to follow the personal credit files of creditors in search of quick information on potential customers.

Teletrack is a modern approach used to check borrower’s credit history. It gives lenders details of all credit records, such as credit card applications or mortgages that an applicant has ever incurred.

A no-teletrack tribal loan, on the other hand, ensures your credit privacy while improving your chances of qualifying for a tribal loan.

Eligibility for Tribal Installment Loans

There are many requirements to be eligible for instant payday loans. Although these requirements are designed to be used as a guide only, they may vary from one payday lender to another. Therefore, borrowers should review each lender’s policies when applying for a payday loan. While some creditors may assess your source of income, most are only concerned with the reliability of your income.

Clients must meet the following requirements to apply with online brokers such as Heartpaydays:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Have an active email
  • Must have a current bank account

Tribal Installment Loan Costs

  • APR: Depending on your state’s lending legislatures and the amount you want to borrow, the APR can vary between 10% and 30% of your loan principal. Typically, they charge $15 per $100.

This equates to an annual percentage rate of almost 400% for a two-week loan. Tribal installment loans are often applied as alternatives to payday loans, where APRs range from 200% to 400%. Heart Paydays Loans offer installment loans with APRs between 5.99% and 35.99%.

  • Late fee: Creditors charge different penalty rates on late repayments depending on state lending laws.

If you are considering applying for a tribal installment loanknow that you will face challenges, especially if you cannot repay the loan immediately. If you find yourself in such a state, you can try various loan options such as loan refinancing or loan discharge in bankruptcy.

Although no law protects defaulting borrowers from prosecution, it is unusual to see borrowers unable to repay their loans end up in jail. Most of the jail sentences are due to these borrowers refusing to appear before the judges or failing to comply with court directives and not due to non-repayment of the loan.

How to apply for an installment loan at Heart Paydays

Step 1: Decide how much you need

Whatever loan you are looking for, estimating the amount you need is perhaps the key concern when deciding on a loan. Applicants are qualified to apply for loans of up to $5,000 from Heart Paydays. Installment loans vary depending on the direct lenders you are matched with from their database.

Step 2: Complete the application

Applicants enjoy a smooth application process when applying for loans online. As an applicant, you need to complete a brief online form and select the loan provider that offers you the best terms. This will instantly initiate the approval process by your potential lender.

Step 3: Wait for feedback

After completing the application, the lender will send you a response confirming whether your application has been accepted or not. This process typically takes less than ten minutes for Heart Paydays loan applicants.

Step 4: Receive your loan

If the direct lenders confirm that you qualify for their loan, they will deposit the money into your bank account. However, if your application is rejected, you will be referred to other lenders who can help you.

Get your installment loan today

The main challenge of opting for a tribal installment loan is that you will have to approach the lenders separately. Another big concern is that direct lenders have the privilege of setting loan terms and application procedures.

Fortunately, your fees can be significantly reduced with loan brokerage sites such as Heart Paydays. Also, they will spare you the lengthy application process of direct lenders.

The alternative to payday loans has its own risks


Payday loans target consumers with no credit or low credit. According to industry research firm IBISWorld, the U.S. check cashing and payday lending industry is set to grow 5.1% in 2022.

These high-interest loans promise quick cash until the next paycheck arrives, but they often create dangerous cycles of new loans to pay off old ones, draining finances and pushing borrowers ever deeper into debt. poverty.

Some states impose rate caps or rate restrictions on these types of loans. However, the authorized interest rate can be exorbitant; for example, California’s rate restriction for a $100 14-day loan can be as high as 460% APR.

Today, consumers enjoy some protection against this type of predatory lending through the Rule on payday, vehicle title and certain high-cost installment loans of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. But an alternative form of lending, known as installment loans, is quietly emerging as a less regulated alternative to payday loans.

Payday Loans vs Installment Loans

Payday loans and installment loans are similar in that they both offer a short-term solution when you need cash immediately. The main differences between payday loans and installment loans are whether they are unsecured (i.e. whether collateral is needed to secure the loan), the amount you can borrow, and the time available to you. granted to repay the loan, plus interest and fees.

Payday loans are usually for a lower amount, like a few hundred dollars, while installment loans can reach amounts of up to $10,000. Payday loans are also repaid all at once by the borrower’s next pay period. Conversely, installment payments are paid in increments over several months or years.

Although payday loans and installment loans offer a quick source of funding in a pinch, they often cause further financial turmoil for borrowers already struggling with high interest rates and high fees.

Payday and short-term loans

Payday and short-term loans are generally unsecured and do not require collateral. They are generally offered for amounts of $500 or less at interest rates of 400% APR or more, depending on your state’s regulations.

These loans must be repaid in full during the borrower’s next pay period. Some states allow lenders to renew the loan if borrowers need more time.

Other types of short-term loans include:

  • Car title loans. Car title loans use your car title or “pink slip” as collateral for a short-term loan. Typically, you have 30 days to repay the loan in full; otherwise, the lender will take possession of your vehicle.
  • Pawnbrokers. These loans require the use of a valuable asset as collateral in exchange for a small portion of its resale value. If you are unable to repay the loan, the pawnbroker keeps your property.

Problems with short-term loans

If payday loans provide liquidity to nearly 12 million Americans in need and make credit accessible to an estimated number 11 percent Americans with no credit history, how bad can they be? The answer is complicated.

Payday loans allow lenders to directly access checking accounts. When payments are due, the lender automatically withdraws the payment from the borrower’s account. However, if the account balance is too low to cover the withdrawal, consumers will have to pay overdraft fees from their bank and additional fees from the payday lender.

Getting a payday loan is easy – that’s why a lot of them fall into predatory lending territory. Borrowers only need to show ID, employment verification, and checking account information. Payday lenders don’t look at credit scores, which means they’re too often given to people who can’t afford to pay them back.

People who are constantly short of money can fall into a cycle of payday loans. For example, a woman in Texas paid a total of $1,700 on a $490 loan from ACE Cash Express; it was his third loan this year, because reported by the Star-Telegram.

When initial loans roll over to new, larger loans on the same fee schedule, borrowers run into trouble due to high interest and fees.

Installment loans

Installment loans are part of a non-bank consumer credit market, which means they come from a consumer credit company, not a bank. These loans are typically offered to low-income, low-credit consumers who cannot qualify for credit from traditional banks.

Installment loans range from $100 to $10,000. Loans are repaid monthly within four to 60 months. These loans can be secured or unsecured.

These are similar to payday loans in that they are intended for short-term use and are aimed at people with low incomes or those with poor credit ratings. However, the two types of loans differ significantly in their lending methods.

Pew Charitable Trusts, an independent non-profit organization, to analyse 296 installment loan contracts from 14 of the largest installment lenders. Pew has found that these loans can be a cheaper and safer alternative to payday loans:

  • Monthly payments on installment loans are more affordable and manageable. According to Pew, installment loan payments are 5% or less of a borrower’s monthly income. This is a positive point, given that payday loans often eat up a significant portion of paychecks.
  • It is cheaper to borrow with an installment loan than with a payday loan. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau found that the median charge on a typical 14-day loan was $15 per $100 borrowed. Installment loans, however, are much cheaper, according to Pew.
  • These loans can be mutually beneficial for the borrower and the lender. According to the Pew report, borrowers can repay their debt in a “manageable period and at a reasonable cost,” without compromising the lender’s profit.

Risks of installment loans

At first glance, installment loans are more profitable and appear to be a safer route for consumers. However, they come with their own risks:

  • State laws allow two harmful practices in the installment loan market: selling unnecessary products and charging fees. Often, installment loans are sold with complementary products, such as credit insurance. Credit insurance protects the lender if the borrower is unable to make payments. However, Pew says credit insurance provides “minimal consumer benefit” and can increase the total cost of a loan by more than a third.
  • The “all-in” APR is usually higher than the APR stated in the loan agreement. The “all-in” APR is the actual percentage a consumer pays after all interest and fees have been calculated. Pew reports that the average overall APR for loans under $1,500 can be as high as 90%. According to Pew, the non-all-in-one APR is the only one required by the Truth in Lending Act to be listed, confusing consumers who end up paying much more than they thought at the time. origin.
  • Installment loans are also commonly refinanced, at which point consumers again have to pay a non-refundable origination or acquisition fee. Additionally, a non-refundable origination fee is paid each time a consumer refinances a loan. As a result, consumers pay more to borrow.

Other alternatives to short-term loans

If you need funds, there are other alternatives to consider besides payday loans and installment loans. Here are some options:

  • Credit-generating loans. These loans are for borrowers with weak or no credit. The financial institution will deposit the loan funds into a locked savings account that you will only have access to after you have made all installment payments on the loan.
  • Alternative payday loans. Alternative payday loans, or PALs, are provided by credit unions to their members. These loans are for a small amount of less than $1,000 which are repaid over a month or a few months, depending on the institution.
  • Aask your employer for an advance. Some employers offer salary advances to their employees. Remember that if you advance part of your next paycheque, it means that your next pay period will be at a reduced amount.
  • Negotiate a payment plan with creditors. Contact your creditors, whether it’s for hospital bills or a credit card bill, to explain your financial situation. They might be able to share payment plan options that you weren’t aware of.

Short-term loans may seem like easy solutions, but be sure to do your research to find the best option for your situation.

How to Protect WANs for Best Results


Article by Fortinet Distributor, Wavelink CEO Ilan Rubin.

The rising cost and growing prevalence of cyberattacks is putting many businesses in Australia and New Zealand on high alert. Whether it’s ransomware, disruptors, business email compromise or phishing attacks, enterprises are trying to protect their growing and increasingly complex networks with more certainty and without compromising performance, flexibility or user experience.

The answer is to layer a comprehensive, integrated security fabric across the enterprise to avoid blind spots and keep users and the organization safe.

More and more people are working from home, organizations are taking advantage of the cloud and even multi-cloud environments, and employee expectations are rising when it comes to their user experience.

They demand seamless access to corporate systems and data from anywhere, with a consumer-like interface that never lets them down. When companies can provide all of this, employee productivity and engagement increase and the business can perform better.

The growing reliance on digital systems means the attack surface has widened and organizations are more vulnerable than ever. They don’t have enough visibility or control over their networks to maintain a truly secure posture. If they attempt to lock down systems for increased security, they often pay the price in terms of performance and user experience.

Many organizations have adopted software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) in response to some of these challenges. This solution prioritizes and manages network traffic so that performance remains robust and resilient, applications behave as users expect, and downtime is significantly reduced. However, without security built into SD-WAN, it can create more security risks for an organization.

Organizations should choose a secure SD-WAN solution. A truly secure solution should be based on a next-generation firewall (NGFW) with overlay networking capability, rather than a networking solution with hardened security afterwards.

Choosing the right secure SD-WAN solution can help organizations get the flexibility and performance they need, along with comprehensive, consistent security.

Many organizations have transitioned to a public cloud or multicloud model with or without SD-WAN. Cloud solutions help businesses transform faster and empower their employees to access critical systems from anywhere. However, securing these multicloud environments often ends up creating a series of unconnected security silos, leading to potential blind spots and gaps.

Businesses need a consistent security solution to protect the entire end-to-end multicloud environment. Otherwise, they run a significant risk of being attacked by holes in their cloud security.

When looking for a cloud security solution, companies should choose one that runs natively on every cloud platform and uses custom turnkey cloud connectors for seamless orchestration and consistent policy enforcement for data and applications. when moving between multiple clouds.

For example, a company provides a fully integrated set of components that provides end-to-end security across an organization’s disparate environments without introducing silos or blind spots.

Organizations looking to continue to grow the way they operate in an uncertain landscape must first ensure that their networks, systems, applications, data and users are secure. The proliferation of cyber threats means that there are risks everywhere. Businesses need to mitigate this risk with integrated security solutions to enable them to operate with confidence and confidence that they will be protected.

Cisco (CSCO) Q2 Revenue: What to Expect


VSIsco (CSCO) stock is down 13% so far this year, including an 11% decline in the last thirty days, lagging the S&P 500 index in both periods. And extending that six-month horizon, stocks lost almost 2% of their value, while the S&P 500 index rose 1.5%.

Given the company’s strong 2.6% dividend yield, Cisco now presents excellent value and strong defensive qualities heading into the reopening of the economy. The networking giant reports its second-quarter fiscal 2022 results after the closing bell on Wednesday. Investors want to know what it will take to keep Cisco stock moving higher. The company continues to steer its business model more towards software and applications, especially services that generate high recurring revenue.

Cisco management has invested in ways to increase its recurring revenue from subscription-based software and services as it moves away from its core business of selling network switches and routers. By 2025, the company said it expects subscription revenue to make up 50% of total revenue, which would represent a six percentage point increase (from 44%) over the past year. fiscal year 2021. Additionally, the company remains in a strong position to benefit from the increased demand for digital networks for educational and business needs.

Investors anticipate increased demand not only for infrastructure and networking services, but also for cloud computing and telecommunications network services, which have become key drivers of Cisco’s growth over the past year. past year. But for any of those catalysts to count, the market will want Cisco to show on Wednesday that it can quickly pivot to new growth businesses and execute in a way that offsets declining revenue in legacy segments.

In the three months ending in January, Wall Street expects Cisco to earn 81 cents a share on revenue of $12.65 billion. That compares to the year-ago quarter when earnings were 79 cents per share on revenue of $11.96 billion. For the full year, ending in June, earnings are expected to rise 6.2% year-over-year to $3.42 per share, while annual revenue of $52.7 billion would increase around 5.8% year-on-year.

Moreover, as evidenced by recent acquisitions, Cisco continues to shift its business model more toward software and applications, especially services that generate high recurring revenue. The speed of Cisco’s software transformation is key to Cisco’s success as it continues to realize revenue declines in its legacy hardware segments, particularly the routing and switching business which is cyclical in nature. As Cisco moves away from its core business, the pace of transition hasn’t been as fast as some investors would like.

It is probably for this reason that Cisco is now would have interested in entering into a deal with data analytics software specialist Splunk (SPLK). Splunk takeover bid could be worth more than $20 billion, says The Wall Street Journal. The Splunk takeover would be Cisco’s biggest takeover ever, surpassing its 2005 deal for Scientific Atlanta that was worth $7 billion. Until new deals are announced, Cisco will have to rely on organic growth that has been less than stellar.

In the first quarter, consolidated revenue rose 8.1% to $12.9 billion, but missed estimates by $90 million. Although Q1 EPS of 82 cents beat 2 cents, adjusted gross margin fell to 64.5% from 65.8% due to higher costs. Just like the product gross margin and the service gross margin. On Wednesday, the market will want to see if Cisco can improve on those metrics before taking a long look at the stock.

Out with the Facebookers. In With Metamates.


Google employees are called Googlers. Amazon workers are known as Amazonians. Yahoo employees were Yahoos.

So it was a conundrum for Facebook employees, long known as Facebookers, when the company rebranded itself as Meta late last year.

Terminology is no longer in question. In a meeting on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook and CEO of Meta, announced a new name for his company’s employees: Metamates.

Mr Zuckerberg introduced the term as part of an overhaul of Meta’s corporate values, which he said needed updating due to the company’s new leadership. In October, he surprised many by moving Facebook to the so-called metaverse, in which different computing platforms are connected to each other via the Internet. The move has downplayed the company’s social media apps, such as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, which have come under scrutiny for privacy and data issues, hateful content and disinformation.

So old Facebook values ​​like “Be bold” and “Focus on impact”? They left. In their place are “Living in the future,” “Building awesome stuff,” “Focus on long-term impact,” and “Meta, Metamates, me,” Zuckerberg said Tuesday.

“I have always believed that for values ​​to be useful, they must be ideas that good companies can reasonably disagree with or emphasize differently,” he wrote in a Publish to his Facebook page. He added: “I think these values ​​reflect how we need to act as a company to bring our vision to life.”

Silicon Valley companies have long had their own jargon and cultures. Corporate slogans such as “Don’t be mean”, “Innovation leads to innovation” and “Go fast and break things” are legion. Palantir, a big data software company, even put the slogan “Save the Shire,” a reference to “Lord of the Rings,” on employee t-shirts. It’s all spawned send-offs from the tech world like HBO’s “Silicon Valley.”

For Mr. Zuckerberg, the latest values ​​represent a sort of fresh start for his company, even if the metaverse is far from formed. But Meta employees greeted the reset on Tuesday with mixed reactions.

On some internal forums, hundreds of employees greeted the changes with heart-shaped emojis. Yet in private chat messages, away from the eyes of managers, some workers expressed more skepticism.

“How will this change the business? I don’t get the message,” one engineer wrote in a private conversation seen by The New York Times. “We keep changing the name of everything, and it’s confusing.”

Another employee said being a Metamate reminded him of sailing. “Does that mean we are on a sinking ship? writes the worker.

Others said the new slogans had a “military inspiration” or sounded like “a cog in a machine”, according to employee posts reviewed by The Times. And on Twitter, a Meta employee mocked the new values, replacing them with “comply” and “obey.” He quickly deleted the message.

Meta declined to comment on the employees’ posts.

The nickname Metamates was coined by Douglas Hofstadter, professor of cognitive science at Indiana University and author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book “Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid.” In one Tweeter, Andrew Bosworth, Meta’s chief technology officer, said an employee emailed Hofstadter asking for rebranding ideas.

In an email, Hofstadter said he originally suggested “teammate” to describe Meta employees, since each half of the word is an anagram of Meta. In a postscript, he recommended Metamate as an alternative. He added that he was unaware the company had adopted the name.

“By the way, I don’t use Facebook and never have,” he wrote. “In fact, I avoid all social networks. It’s not my style at all. But the email I use!

Mr. Zuckerberg, in his Facebook post, advised employees to be patient with any changes in the business. One of the new values ​​asks employees to “focus on long-term impact” as Facebook transitions to the metaverse.

“We must tackle the challenges that will have the greatest impact, even if the full results will not be visible for years,” he wrote.

Roanoke Plumbing Company Offers Five Ways to Spot a Failing Water Heater


“There’s nothing more shocking than waking up on a winter’s day and having to take a cold shower because your water heater broke down,” said Ted Puzio, owner of Southern Trust Home Services. “Sometimes they need a simple repair. However, there are signs homeowners can watch for to help determine if their water heater will need to be replaced instead to ensure hot water for the family on busy mornings. .”

Here are five telltale signs that a home’s water heater may be ready to fail:

  1. Age. If the water heater is more than 10 years old, it is approaching the end of its lifespan. If the owner is unsure of the age of the water heater, they can look up the serial number on most manufacturers’ websites.
  2. Noise. If the water heater is rumbling, there may be too much sediment buildup. This can sometimes be cleaned up with regular maintenance, but the buildup gets worse as the unit ages.
  3. Rusty water. To check for rusty water coming from house pipes or water heaters, the homeowner can run hot water through a bucket. If the water hasn’t drained after filling two regular buckets, the problem is probably with the water heater and not the pipes.
  4. Does not heat water well or takes too long to heat up. This can be something as minor as a malfunctioning thermostat or even because the appliance circuit breaker has tripped, but it can often be traced to a faulty heating element or thermostat. A plumber can recommend whether the fixture should be repaired or replaced, depending on the age of the fixture.
  5. Water around the tank. Although there may be fixable reasons why the water heater is leaking, if the problem is with the tank itself, replacement is recommended.

“The best and most proactive step a homeowner can take is to enter into a maintenance contract with a reputable home service contractor,” Puzio said. “Water heater tune-ups are ideal for keeping the unit in good working order and give the homeowner an idea of ​​the condition and life cycle of their water heater. We recommend all homeowners maintain an annual maintenance schedule and watch for these signs before the unit completely fails.”

Credit Suisse class action settlements total $106 million in alleged stock lending conspiracy


(Photo credit: Novikov Aleksey/Shutterstock)

Overview of the Credit Suisse stock lending class action lawsuit settlement:

  • Why: The settlements will allow Credit Suisse to withdraw primarily from class action lawsuits alleging the bank was part of a multi-bank conspiracy over stock loan trading.
  • WHO: Credit Suisse has entered into two separate class action settlements.
  • Or: The lawsuits were filed in federal court in New York.

By reaching an $81 million settlement, Credit Suisse will be the first bank to walk away from a class action lawsuit alleging megabanks conspired to monopolize the stock lending trade. The bank also reached a separate $25 million settlement to settle a multidistrict lawsuit that consolidated multiple class action lawsuits with similar antitrust allegations.

The two “ice-breaker” agreements will release Credit Suisse from any litigation. The agreements each require Credit Suisse to continue to cooperate with the class action lawsuits as litigation continues against the other megabanks involved.

Stock lending occurs when the owner of stocks temporarily transfers them to a borrower, and then the borrower pays borrowing fees and transfers other assets to the lender as collateral. This investment practice can be used to increase fund returns.

Credit Suisse, along with the other banks named in the class action lawsuits, are all major brokers in the stock lending industry and own an 80% share of the business, according to the class action lawsuit.

$81 million payout, a ‘great result’ for the settlement class

Credit Suisse’s $81 million class action payout settles a lawsuit brought by a group of public pension funds, including the Iowa Public Employees Retirement System, in 2017. The funds alleged that the Credit Suisse, along with Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, and JPMorgan Chase Bank NA, conspired to cripple some start-up competitors in equity lending, such as Quadriserv and SL-x.

The $81 million figure represents between 8% and 17% of Credit Suisse’s proportionate share of the damages that pension fund investors thought they had suffered. Investors call the payout a “great result for the settlement class.”

The Settlement Category includes all persons or entities who, directly or through an agent, have entered into stock lending transactions with all relevant parties of Credit Suisse or other prime brokers or their parent companies, direct or indirect subsidiaries or divisions in the United States. The appeal period extends from January 7, 2009 to the date of execution of the settlement.

Credit Suisse will pay out an additional $25 million to burned investors

The $25 million will settle a multi-district lawsuit that in 2016 consolidated multiple class action lawsuits against Credit Suisse, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Bank of America, Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Deutsche Bank AG. In these cases, investors alleged that the banks had conspired to keep their own profits high despite investors’ losses by preventing investors from using new anonymous trading platforms.

The settlement amount will first cover taxes, attorneys’ fees, service awards and expenses before distributions are made to the settlement class. The settlement class includes anyone who, directly or through an agent, has entered into at least one interest rate swap transaction with defendants in the United States. The course period is from January 1, 2008 to January 21, 2022.

Have you been affected by Credit Suisse’s conspiracy with other megabanks to prevent competition on stock lending? You may be an eligible member of these Settlement Classes!

Texas sues Facebook meta-mother over facial recognition data


The Texas attorney general on Monday filed a lawsuit against Meta Platforms, Facebook’s parent company, for allegedly collecting facial recognition data without users’ clear permission.

Ken Paxton, the attorney general, said the social network violated a state consumer protection law by repeatedly capturing and marketing biometric data in photos and videos for more than a decade without the informed consent of users. He said the company also shared the data with third parties and failed to destroy the information within a reasonable time.

“Facebook will no longer take advantage of people and their children for the purpose of profit at the expense of their safety and well-being,” Paxton said in a statement. “This is yet another example of Big Tech’s deceptive business practices, and it must stop. I will continue to fight for the privacy and safety of Texans.

The lawsuit adds to Meta’s legal battles as local and national regulators target big tech companies for their dominance and practices. In 2019, Facebook agreed to create new levels of surveillance in a confidentiality agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, for which it also paid a $5 billion fine. The FTC and nearly all state attorneys general are also seeking to take down Meta for allegedly crushing the competition to maintain its social media dominance.

“These claims are baseless and we will vigorously defend ourselves,” a spokeswoman for Meta said.

Texas files lawsuit a year after Facebook settled a similar class action lawsuit in Illinois for $650 million to use face tagging without users permission. Facebook failed to have the lawsuit dismissed. Under scrutiny for its use of facial recognition data, the company also announced in November that it would delete the facial recognition data of more than one billion users.

In the absence of a federal privacy law, dozens of states have enacted their own privacy, content moderation, and antitrust laws. In 2009, Texas passed a law prohibiting the collection and use of facial recognition and other biometric data, such as fingerprints and retina scans. Illinois also has its own data privacy law on facial recognition and other sensitive biometric information.

Mr Paxton told a press conference on Monday he was seeking damages of “billions of dollars”. There were about 20 million users in Texas, and each violation, he said, can result in penalties of $25,000.

As Indonesia Embraces the Cloud, Epsilon Advances with AWS Direct Connect


Warren Aw (Epsilon)

Epsilon seeks to maximize the potential of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Indonesia through an advanced partnership focused on providing enhanced connectivity to the newly launched region.

The provider’s Cloud Connect solution – delivered through its Infiny network-as-a-service (NaaS) platform – is designed to allow customers to purchase and manage dedicated network connections to the AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) region, which was launched in December 2021.

Operating as an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner, Epsilon provides connectivity to AWS through its global private network that has also passed additional AWS Service Delivery Program validation. For advanced users, Epsilon also offers a cloud networking solution for managing a multi-cloud environment with automation, network security, and “operational visibility and control.”

“Indonesia is home to more than 200 million internet users and some of Southeast Asia’s biggest start-ups,” said Warren Aw, managing director of Asia-Pacific at Epsilon. “With the launch of the new AWS Region in Indonesia, our customers and partners can now expand their cloud service footprint in one of the fastest growing markets in the world.”

In 2019, Epsilon earned the AWS Service Delivery designation for AWS Direct Connect, which is designed to validate AWS partners with a “deep understanding” of the vendor’s core cloud services through “demonstrated experience and proven customer success.”

“This addition strengthens our existing network of cloud connection services for AWS already available in many locations in Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States,” Aw added. “We look forward to enabling our customers and partners to enable cloud connectivity to AWS in Indonesia and globally. »

A major customer in Indonesia is e-commerce giant Tokopedia, which leverages Epsilon’s managed cloud routing service to connect AWS production environments to other clouds using Cloud Connect.

“Through Cloud Connect, Epsilon is helping us directly access the cloud service providers of our choice with high-speed connectivity that matches our needs,” said Ryan de Melo, VP of Engineering at Tokopedia. “So we can focus on improving our offering without having to worry about network infrastructure.

“We hope this continued partnership can also allow us to create a trusted online marketplace for businesses and consumers across Indonesia, and further our mission of democratizing commerce through technology.”

As reported by Asia ChannelAWS has officially launched its new region in Indonesia, backed by a planned investment of approximately US$5 billion (71.7 trillion rupees) in the country over the next 15 years.

Planned investment includes capital expenditures for the construction of data centers, operating expenditures related to ongoing utility and facility costs, and purchases of goods and services from regional businesses. The investment is also expected to support an average of 24,700 direct and indirect jobs per year over the 15-year period, according to research by the cloud provider.

How to Request a Job Referral (With Templates)


When someone passes on a few good words about you to the recruiter to help you land the job or an interview at a company, it’s called a recommendation.

Many job and interview opportunities are never made public, so it’s crucial to build a network that can help you in your career. In this article, we’ll show you how to ask for a referral and get closer to your dream job.

Find people to ask for a recommendation

A man focused on completing his work in the office

Before you can start asking for a job referral, you need to collect the information of people who can be used as allies. These can be old friends, acquaintances, colleagues, former employers, family members, former classmates, and anyone in your network who could help you.

You can extract them from your existing and networked connections.

Start by exporting your LinkedIn connections and making a list of people who can help you. You don’t need to use anything fancy for this purpose, an Excel spreadsheet or Google spreadsheet will do just fine.

To export your LinkedIn contacts, follow these steps:

  1. Go to My network.
  2. Click on Link.
  3. Go to Manage contacts.
  4. To select Export contacts.

Linkedin page to export the connection

According to a study, weak ties – people connected with you remotely or complete strangers – have better relationships than strong ties – your friends, family, acquaintances. Therefore, they can be more useful. So, if you have a particular company in mind that you are looking to get a job at, look for people affiliated with that company. These people can be employees, customers, suppliers or more. Finally, connect with them.


However, when sending connection requests to employees of a company, consider their position and service time. For example, a junior copywriter who joined two months ago probably won’t be the best person to get a recommendation.

These people are always getting their foot inside and their opinion may not matter much in the recruitment process. Look for someone who has been with the company for at least two to three years and who is either related to the hiring process or is a senior in the vertical in which you are seeking employment.

For example, if you are looking for a job as an SEO specialist, a marketing manager would be the right person to contact. Eventually, you can add them to your allies spreadsheet.

Worksheet for people to request a recommendation

Plus, you can join more communities and groups on platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, Meetup and even Facebook to improve your professional network. These are the places where your professional peers or elders hang out. This will help increase your chances of meeting the right people. Gradually, you can engage and connect with them on a professional level.

Finally, filter out people who can actually help you and who are also willing to do so. Start a conversation with them by sending an introductory message, engage with them in the comments section of posts, and try to get noticed.

Can you ask strangers to recommend you?

A man in a business suit.

Before asking someone for a recommendation, think about who they are. If they were a stranger and you just connected with them, you would want to share with them your resume, your current skills, your expertise, and any of the great accomplishments you made in your field of work before they cannot recommend you.

Additionally, some companies run employee referral programs, where the person who referred you receives a bonus if you prove to be the right person for the job. So it will be a good choice to dig a little deeper and locate these companies. This will make it easier for you to request a referral process. And if you’re a good candidate, the employee would be just as interested in referring you as you are in being referred.

Follow these tips to request the recommendation via LinkedIn or email

When you’ve finally made a list of potential allies and are ready to write and send the email, consider including these few things in your email.

  • Address the recipient by their first name.
  • Greet them.
  • Introduce yourself if this is your first interaction.
  • Including a hook. It could be an interest you share with the person you’re emailing or a rock-solid accomplishment you’ve made in your line of work to excite them or consider recommending you.
  • Make it easier for them by including a choice. This will help the person feel comfortable responding and avoid any delays. If not, you can easily move on to the next person on your list to ask for a recommendation.
  • Thank them and sign.

Here is a template that you can modify and use according to your needs.

In addition to sending this email, if they agree to refer you to the intended person, make it easy for them by including a referral template.

Here is a recommendation email template you can use.

How to ask for a recommendation when changing careers

Many recruiters want to hire someone with years of experience in their field. However, this makes it harder for career changers to get their resumes through these hiring managers.

Instead of reaching out to people involved in the hiring process, consider reaching out to seniors in your line of work. If you have already done the required work, they will understand your expertise, your understanding of the subject matter, as well as your potential to do the job.

If you’re having trust issues, consider listening to Jonny Pardoe’s The Self Esteem and Confidence podcast.

Get your dream job

If you could invest the time in research and connection and muster the courage to ask for a recommendation, your career could change for the better.

So don’t just go the traditional route, take the smarter route. And who knows, asking for a job recommendation turns out to be the next best decision you’ve made in your career – applying for the job you love always comes first!

Play by the rules of Oak Hills Golf Course


Oak Hills Park Golf Course.

Erik Trautmann / Hearst Connecticut Media

On the hyperlocal social networking service “Next Door West Norwalk,” Bob Fosina wrote, “Sledding in Oak Hills? No more. Our society has fallen to a new low, especially here in Norwalk, compliments most recently of the Superintendent of the Oak Hills Golf Course. I thought it was weird when there were only two other cars there when in the last 20 years days like yesterday would have 30 cars in the parking lot. A rite of passage has always been tobogganing on the local golf course. Saturday afternoon I was aggressively approached, told the kids and I was in violation, the cops were called and I would be ticketed.

Josh Molaver, following Rosina’s comments on Next Door West Norwalk, wrote that after reading Rosina’s post, he contacted the authority and received this response: “Oak Hills Park is an urban park, but NO Taxpayer money is not going to maintain the parking lot. When the park is closed, as was the case last weekend, no one is supposed to be on the property and sledding is still prohibited. We understand the frustration , but liability is the main issue and with the litigious society we live in we can’t risk a lawsuit, God forbid someone has been hurt As a parent I love to see the kids sledding, but we must protect the best interests of the park as a whole.My apologies for the inconvenience, and again, I understand your frustration.

It is not true that “NO taxpayer money” goes into maintaining the golf course. Indeed, while preventing non-golfing Norwalk residents from enjoying a variety of park activities, the golf course has required millions of dollars in taxpayer-subsidized loans and grants to survive. Meanwhile, the authority stripped the park of trees and dumped thousands of pounds of harmful chemicals on its grounds.

What is going on? Oak Hills was meant to be a public park where people could go. Instead, with one caveat, it was handed over to the Oak Hills Authority, to serve the interests of golfers only. The caveat was that the authority ensured that golfers would cover the cost of maintaining the golf course so that it did not cost taxpayers a penny.

As another Norwalk resident summed up the issue in a response to Fosina’s post, the park “is a gem of a resource that should provide greater access to all citizens for a variety of activities.” When it comes to sledding, signs and demarcated areas should be able to address liability issues.

Instead, “Oak Hills is run like an old boys club (both D and R). The problem goes back a decade, probably even more. Club runs out of money, apologizes to city for being independent, city gets tough but subsidizes park, park upspends, says all is well, then returns hat in hand to city and park the cycle begins again. This cycle has happened many times.

“Golf courses have hazards – sand traps, water – this golf course is a moral hazard to the taxpayers of Norwalk… If you want to plug a leak in your taxpayers’ money, keep an eye on the Park Authority – look into their finances, attend their meetings, attend when they come to the Board of Assessment and Taxation, it’s a resource that all of Norwalk subsidizes.

Paul Cantor is a resident of Norwalk.
