    1. DigiNotar was a Dutch certificate authority owned by VASCO Data Security International, Inc.[1][2] On September 3, 2011, after it had become clear that a security breach had resulted in the fraudulent issuing of certificates, the Dutch government took over operational management of DigiNotar's systems.[3]

    1. Mademoiselle Twinkletoes

      This right here really made me feel uncomfortable about this section with Leila and the old man. I mean obviously they're in the middle of a dance floor I'm sure he won't do anything outrageous but the squeezing her close and talking about how beauty and men wanting to kiss you is fleeting, capped off with this patronizing name really makes it sound like he's trying to make a move on her rather than giving her advice, and I can't tell if that's my modern day skepticism or Leila's inexperience that she can't see this man for what he is.

    1. synthesize

      To synthesize in definition is create something chemically. This means that if out of 118 elements, 20 of those are man-made via a nuclear reactor and/or a particle accelerator. These elements are unstable because they are built upon fusing an Atom's nucleus with more proton's than it may usually have which causes the stability to become dangerously chaotic as it is not natural for the element. This is the building block for the Atomic Bombs creation.

    1. Yow loveres axe I now this questioun:      1347 Who hath the worse, arcite or palamoun?      1348

      The Knight’s Tale The question of what is the lesser of the two evils seems tobe a running theme in Chaucer’s The Knight’s Tale. This theme is most apparentat the end of part one of The Knight’s Tale when the question is asked ”Yowloveres axe I now this questioun:/ Who hath the worse, Arcite or Palamoun?” (lines1347/48).In other words, it poses the question, what is worse Arcite being exiled andunable to see Emelye or  the positionthat Palamoun finds himself in as a prisoner, but has access to Emelye? I wouldargue that Palamoun’s position is the worse of the two. Arcite, can romanticizethe past or move on in a way that Palamoun is unable to. Palmoun, on the otherhand, is confined in a cell making it difficult to romanticize the past or moveforward.  This idea of the lesser of thetwo evils also appears in lines 1318-23, although not as directly in theprevious lines:Ther as a beest may al his lust fulfille.And whan a beest is deed he hath no peyne;But man after his deeth moot wepe and pleyne,Though in this world he have care and wo.Withouten doute it may stonden so. The answere of thislete I to dyvynys,          In these lines, a beast can act on his desires and can makedecisions without considering an afterlife. However, the opposite is true forman. Chaucer’s use of these juxtapositions to allows him to continue this themeof the lesser of the two evils.What is Chaucer’s intention in having his reader contemplateone side or the other in such a direct way?

    1. We share our labor of love

      Here's something to share from the margins--George Carlin. Like Carlin, we in the margins need is to crash into the open and yoke academic power (good ideas, clearly expressed, and openly political) to systemic change. Open education seems too tame to do that. Prove me wrong.

    1. As Potts points out, medical experts consider modifications that contravene social norms to be a form of self-mutilation, but they are much less likely to make such judgments about cosmetic surgeries intended to align appearance more closely with norms.27 Thus a medical ethicist who has never spoken with Stalking Cat was willing to state for publication the fear that he is "seriously risking his health" and thus being "harmed by medicine,"28 although Cat tells me that he has experienced no such health effects. Likewise, Lizard Man says that tongue-splitting is perfectly safe, with no negative consequences. Although Cat's alterations meet more often with patronizing dismissal than overt hostility, Orlan makes people quite angry, even when they are favorably disposed to her gender critique.2

      Interesting point. This sort of body modification may not be harmful in the physical sense, and I mean, maybe the social aspects can be overlooked? Kind of hard to put myself in their shoes, and what can I reasonably say about their experiences?

      A critical examination is shaky ground here.

    1. The answer, of course, is end-to-end encryption. The way this works is to remove any “man-in-the-middle” vulnerabilities by encrypting messages from endpoint to endpoint, with only the sender and recipient holding the decryption key. This level of messaging security was pushed into the mass-market by WhatsApp, and has now become a standard feature of every other decent platform.
    2. The issue, though—and it’s a big one, is that the SMS infrastructure is inherently insecure, lending itself to so-called “man-in-the-middle attacks.” Messages run through network data centres, everything can be seen—security is basic at best, and you are vulnerable to local carrier interception when travelling.
    1. When you make a call using Signal, it will generate a two-word secret code on both the profiles. You will speak the first word and the recipient will check it. Then he will speak the second word and you can check it on your end. If both the words match, the call has not been intercepted and connected to the correct profile

    1. The Squire

      Is it just me, or is a squire to most trained, experienced, good looking, physically fit, beautiful sounding person in all of these tales? The knight does not compare to this man.

    1. Nor can any animal utter any sound which we cannot explain, or tell from what emotion, or passion it proceeds. This distinguish­ing faculty was necessary to man as master of the animal race

      Man is the master of the world

      Important to note is that it is man's understanding of languages which other animals make but cannot understand across biological family.

      This would be complicated by the fact that animals are doing all sorts of communication we have no idea about.

    1. keenest attachments, and whose natural gifts may be, if we do not squander or destroy them, exactly what we need to flourish and perfect ourselves—as human beings.

      Kass' implications in the quote indicates the potential biotechnology has on the human psyche. Although biotechnology has the ability to forge new paths in curing feeble human (or in essence, any living thing) traits, such as sickness and suffering, it can be further exploited to enhance physical traits. However, Kass' tonality shines light that when this technology is fully developed, humans will lose sight of what they formerly relied on "keenest attachments" Therefore, it is of great significance that the limbs (keenest attachments) are used to "...perfect ourselves-as human beings." and not misused or ultimately destroyed.

    1. The cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea dosed over his head.

      This is an example of a man vs. nature conflict, because the sea water is making it hard for him to stay above and breathe.

    2. The cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea dosed over his head.He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face and the salt water in his open mouth made him gag and strangle.

      This is a Man vs. Nature conflict because Rainsford is struggling to stay above water after he has fallen into the ocean and the salt water engulfs him making it impossible to breathe.

    3. "Tonight," said the general, "we will hunt--you and I."Rainsford shook his head. "No, general," he said. "I will not hunt."The general shrugged his shoulders and delicately ate a hothouse grape. "As you wish, my friend," he said. "The choice rests entirely with you. But may I not venture to suggest that you will find my idea of sport more diverting than Ivan's?"

      This is a Man vs. Self conflict becuast Rainsford is giving the choice to either be given to Ivan to be taken care of or to go against the general in a hunting game and it is a dicision he has to make himself.

    1. Irwin Consulting Services Review - Hur man ser till en säkrare vinter Road Trip

      Vintersäsongen ger skönheten i kallt och vitt natur. Många människor ser fram emot denna typ av väder eftersom de kan stanna insvept i sina filtar eller jackor hela dagen medan du dricker varm choklad och titta på bra filmer. Denna månad kan vara den mest spännande månaden för många familjer på grund av semesterperioden, och en massa människor gör sista minuten shopping och få alla sina förberedelser gjort. Med detta, många individer blir upptagen med sina bilar för att gå till olika ställen att köpa saker eller produkter som de behövde för sin jul-och nyårsfester. Andra har gjort utomhusaktiviteter med sina familjemedlemmar, vänner eller kollegor.

      Men oavsett vad orsaken är, att använda bilen under denna säsong kräver noggrann förberedelse för att undvika olyckor på vägen. Irwin konsulttjänster skulle vilja ge lite hjälp i detta avseende genom några användbara riktlinjer som klarlagts i nästa styckena.

      Överväg att byta till vinterdäck. Detta är ofta rekommenderas av många experter, särskilt under denna säsong, och det är även obligatoriskt på vissa platser i USA. Snö eller vinterdäck ger dragkraft som är bättre än alla andra däck när temperaturen är på eller under 7 grader Celsius. Sådan möjliggör större kontroll och kortare stoppsträckor på väg ytor under det kalla och snöiga vädret. Om du märker att några av dina familjemedlemmar, släktingar eller vänner inte äger denna typ av däck, då måste du råda dem att köpa några för sin egen säkerhet och för alla människor som kommer att rida med dem i sina bilar. Priset på denna typ av däck kan vara högre än andra, men du kan vara säker på att det är allt värt det i det långa loppet.

      Sätta drifter i beaktande när du är på väg. Du vill inte vara inblandad i några riskfyllda bil snurrar scenarier rätt? Det vore bäst att vara försiktig med snödrivor eftersom även om du kör på en tydlig väg, men med lite fart, kan starka vindar av vintern driva dessa drivor på den klara vägen, vilket kan leda till oönskade olyckor om du inte är uppmärksamma.

      Se till att locken är ordentligt täckta. För att förhindra fukt från frysning, måste du täcka däck ventiler. Gör detta, kan du undvika luft från att fly med locken ordentligt täckt och även förhindra att ha ett platt däck.

      Ge tillräcklig luft. Att gå ut ur huset och delta i långa resor med din bil kan vara en utmaning i vintersäsongen på grund av förändringen i temperaturer och andra relaterade aspekter. Om du vill möta de snöiga vägar beredda, då ofta kontrollera ditt däcktryck. Se till att inkludera detta villkor på ditt däck underhåll för att få däcken i sin bästa form även med låga temperaturer och högt lufttryck.

      Förberedelse är alltid nyckeln. Du kan inte vinna mot vinterväglag om du inte är beredd att möta dess konsekvenser. Ta med dig några hattar, vantar, och även en spade organiserade inuti din bil trunk. Inkludera i din vinter Driving kit en Kitty kull också eftersom det kan ge dragkraft till din bil på isiga eller snöiga vägar. Ta med en extra kanna av vinter vindrutespolarvätska samt särskilt under långa resor för att säkerställa synlighet.

      Förmedla kunskapen. Vissa tonåringar har oftast en mindre ordentlig förståelse av vinterväglag. Det är din plikt som vuxen att påminna dem om de centrala frågor att tänka på inför en snöig väg att upprätthålla sin säkerhet och sina unga liv. Irwin Consulting Services ville att du skulle vara deras väktare på vägen, och om du är en tonåring läser detta då alltid komma ihåg att vara förberedd och vara försiktig, och alltid lyssna på råd från dina äldre familjemedlemmar eller vänner.

      Dina däck har också sina gränser. Du bör ha tillräcklig kunskap för att identifiera när du ska ersätta dem för gott. Du kan ändra vinterdäck varannan till tre säsonger per designad av bil experter. Om du ville ge nytt syfte till din gamla däck, en däck samlare vet de bästa sätten, så bättre komma i kontakt med en i ditt grannskap.

      Irwin Consulting Services hade tidigare gett några tips och riktlinjer för hur man kan säkerställa inomhus och utomhus säkerhet under denna semester säsong, och denna artikel är en del av deras mål att ge användbar information till allmänheten att se till deras säkerhet under alla väderförhållanden.

    2. Irwin Consulting Services Review - Hvordan man skal håndtere ferie dekorasjoner trygt

      Det er allerede i desember og til de individene som har et svakt hjerte sier det er for sent å sette ferie dekorasjoner på sitt hjem, ikke vær. Fylling hjemmet ditt med pene og vakre dekorasjoner ville ikke ta svært lang tid så gir opp og begynne beautifying huset ditt akkurat nå. Å vite at du vil bruke din personlige stil og preferanser i utformingen av huset ditt vil gi deg en spennende følelse, men sammen med at følelser, må du være veldig forsiktig i utformingen spesielt når det gjelder elektrisk materiale.

      Noen trenger ikke å føle seg ensom gå om natten i nabolaget sitt fordi mange av husene var så lyse og til og med glitrer natten med sine dekorative lys og andre ferie-tema dekorasjoner. Irwin konsulenttjenester er enig i at høytiden faktisk kan spre kjærlighet og glede over hele verden.

      Men høytiden også krever en kald vær, som er en uunngåelig omstendighet som fører til alle husholdninger bruker mye varme kilder. Du må være forsiktig i dekorere hjemmet ditt siden mange varme kilder er rundt. Du vil også måtte håndtere noen elektriske forbindelser når du setter din ferie dekorasjoner som julelys på plass. Dobbeltsjekke skjøteledninger eller grenuttak sammen med alle ledninger hvis hver er trygt å bruke og har ingen skade i det hele tatt. Lær hvor mye strøm kjører gjennom ledninger og finne ut om det var riktig og riktig tall. Hold juletre minst 3 meter unna varme kilder som plass varmeovner og ildsteder.

      Irwin konsulenttjenester ønsker at du skal velge riktig på hva slags juletre du skal sette i huset ditt. Du kan slå seg ned med en ekte eller levende treet eller en kunstig en, men viktigst, husk å unngå veldig tørre trær fordi de er svake til branner. Før du plasserer en levende treet på standen sin, sørg for å kutte 1-2 inches fra bunnen av stammen for å sikre god vann absorpsjon når fylle den med vann.

      Utendørs dekorere bør gjøres med riktig forsiktighet. Hvert utstyr og dekorasjon du skal bruke må være merket for utendørs bruk. Følg nøye retningslinjene gitt spesielt på elektriske produkter. Strømstyrken vurdering av forlengelse ledningene skal matche makt behovene til elektriske elementer (strømstyrke). Din elektriske lys og dekorasjoner bør plugges inn kretser beskyttet av bakken feil krets interrupters eller GFCIs. Oppretthold avstand fra strømledninger mens du gjør utendørs dekorere også. Hold stikkontakter organisert for å hindre overbelastning. Ikke koble mange elektriske dekorasjoner eller enheter på en gang. Du må ikke la overoppheting å skje og starte en brann.

      Bekreft om det er også en skikkelig isolasjon på elektriske ledninger ved å sjekke om de ikke var klemt i Vinduer, dører eller under tunge objekter. Vær forsiktig med å installere dekorative lysene i tillegg for å sikre at det ville være noen skade på ledningen er isolasjon. Trekk ut elektriske dekorasjoner når du skifter pærer eller sikringer. I tillegg slår alle innendørs og utendørs elektriske dekorasjoner må praktiseres før du går til sengs eller forlate huset.

      Stearinlys med en god duft kan faktisk belyse natten av høytiden, men disse ekte stearinlys må ikke stå uovervåket i lang tid for å unngå brann ulykker. Oppbevar dem på et sted som også er trygt fra rekkevidden av små barn og var borte fra brennbare gjenstander. Slukke dens brann hvis noen gang din ' går å sove eller går ytterside din hjem i lang tid.

      Irwin Consulting Services lover å være forpliktet til å hjelpe bedrifter, profesjonelle eller enkeltpersoner i å opprettholde offentlig sikkerhet og vil også oppfordre hver husstand til å gjøre det samme og være dedikert til sin egen sikkerhet denne høytiden.

    1. It was the degree of centrality to the white population of the state which alone then constituted the important point of comparison between these places

      This was really unsettling for me read. Proximity to the most white people is the one criteria that made the difference in where the University's location was chosen. If Charlottesville hadn't been most central to the white population of Virginia, UVa would be located in Lexington or in Staunton. Its definitely not a good thing that our school was centered around pleasing only the white race before our grounds were even built. I can't imagine how different our grounds would be and our university if another place had been more convenient for white people. UVa certainly has a racist past and I think most of us, if not all, are aware of that but I still couldn't believe that such a racist criteria is the reason the school exists where it does today and is the way Uva is today.

    1. Organizers promote cultural change using the tools of industry — taking up the masters’ tools to defeat the master. While organizers of repair events reject estab-lished modes of mass consumption, they posit device-level electronics repair as mecha-nisms for envisioning new people and societies.

      Esto me recuerda la idea de Paulo Freire sobre decir con las tecnologías del colono, la voz del colonizado.

    1. Computers that are “awake” and superhumanly intelligent may be developed. (To date, there has been much controversy as to whether we can create human equivalence in a machine.

      The author speculated of technology that could think for itself, in other words Artificial Intelligence. Surprisingly, these things already exists. For example the computer developed by IBM, "Deep Blue". This computer was created for the sole purpose of thinking for itself and playing chess. This computer even beat a word champion in chess, Garry Kasparov. Although, this computer could only think about one thing this still support the fact that super humanly intelligent computers could be developed.

    1. Everywhere we remain unfree and chained to technology, whether we passionately affirm or deny it. But we are delivered over to it in the worst possible way when we regard it as something neutral

      In today's society it is common to hear that we are chained to our smartphones, computers, and other personal electronics.The author is supporting this by saying that we are imprisoned by technology even if we like it or not. The author is also suggesting that if we resist technology our lives would be harder than it already is.
