Things are changing for the better concerning cyber security. Have you ever being troubled by something you deem unethical at your place of work? At this moment, you may be contemplating about leaking sensitive information about the place you work. However, experts have revealed that you should think twice as artificial intelligence is changing things. Imagine the developments in the web security sector are allowing artificial intelligence to scrutinize every aspect of your work life. The email you send can be analyzed, the web pages you visit, files you upload as well as information you scan can be monitored. For this reason, you should think twice before leaking that information or visiting those tricky web pages that are likely to tarnish your reputation if found out.


The internet of things allows the interconnection of handheld devices in a way that synchronization is possible. The result is sharing of information and flexibility. The internet of things allows corporations to shut down their databases immediately a cyber-attack is detected. This ensures that no information will be stolen by the hackers. While the interconnection of devices offers a wide variety of devices to be hacked, it gives cyber security firms more ways of scanning threats. This is according to the chief executive officer of a company called Darktrace that specializes in mitigating cyber-attack threats.


According to experts, the best way to keep a threat out of the system is understanding devices and people. This way, it will be possible to notice even the smallest changes in the network. At the end of the day, this enables experts to develop a pattern. However, there is concern that the internet of things will invade the privacy of workers. With such environment, resentment is likely to increase as well as low morale. Production and efficiency are likely to go down when employees realize that they are being monitored.



Whenever any programming business gets started, money needs to be spent. This money goes toward the foundation of the business. For example, a company that plans on selling artwork will need to pay for people to create art, or the artist who is trying to sell her own artwork will need to pay for the materials for her paintings or pottery.


Of course, many other fees are necessary when you’re starting a new programming business. Every company needs to have a website, so those expenses alone will cost money on a regular basis. But there’s something to be said for saving as much money as possible when you’re trying to create a startup business as well.


The majority of startup programming businesses fail, and they fail right away. One of the reasons for this is because of money. This probably goes without saying, but many people cannot sustain not making money from their business in the first few months or even in the first year. They get frustrated, and they lose all of the motivation that they once had.


For this reason, if you are creating a startup of your own, the best thing that you can do for yourself is to save as much money on initial expenses as possible. Here are some ideas for doing that.


First, don’t hire anyone just yet. This can be done in time. Right now, just use yourself or whoever else is with you as your basic team. Next, don’t spend a lot of money on office supplies and other things that aren’t actually necessary. Finally, forget about renting a space. Use your home as your space, or do as the entrepreneur greats of the past have done and use your garage. By doing all of these things, you’ll save money and have a better likelihood of succeeding with your programming startup.


Not much has changed with cyber attacks to small businesses over the past year. Even though most attacks can be easily prevented with a small amount of knowledge and hardening of the personal computers in businesses, the number of small businesses attacked is still very high. Small business owners still have no clear picture of how to prevent cyber attacks, so they protect their business with an anti-virus program and hope.


According to Verizon’s annual data breach report, as summarized by Shaun Waterman

from, business owners make it too easy for an attacker to walk in and steal company data, or infect the network in a way that disrupts normal business, costing businesses thousands. Office workers are uneducated on proper password policies and prevention of attacks like social engineering scams.


Simple malware scans could detect and remove malicious software silently working in the background of a business computer. This malware, if undetected can stay for years sending employee information, customer information and secret company information to attackers, and from them to the competitor.


Criminals no longer need to be computer savvy, evil geniuses either. A large amount of free hacking tools have flooded the internet so that anyone, even a child, could install a tool and begin finding machines to exploit within minutes. All of this, without any prior IT knowledge.


Verizon tells consumers with their annual Data Breach Investigations Report that security is everyone’s responsibility and should not just be the problem of a security professional. Users need to take more action to defend precious company assets and close open doors leading right into their network. What is required are basic security principles anyone can manage. By just doing the small things, a hacker’s tool will skip over a small business and move on to the next easier one.


Marc Andreessen once declared that “Software is eating the world”. This means that there is a need for programmers to write the software. There are so many programming languages that exist in the world but some are far more popular than the rest. When a software company is looking to employ new employees, it will go for people who are well familiar with the systems and languages they use including the recent languages like Google Go or Apple Swift. Below are some programming languages that you ought to learn if you want to compete favorably in the industry.



Popular Programming Languages



Java was invented in 1991 for smart televisions and remains popular even today given that it remains crucial in the development of android app and other business software. C is another programming language that is among the oldest languages that are still commonly used. Python is another language that has been in existence from 1989 and fans love it for its highly readable code and it is the easiest to start with. PHP is a language used to program websites and big sites like Facebook, Yahoo and WordPress use it. Microsoft’s Visual Basic and the Visual Basic.NET has tried to make programming become easier as it allows you to make changes by dragging and dropping.



JavaScript is another popular programming program that is mostly used in the development of web apps. If you are a statistician or doing data analysis, you should then study the R programming language because of the power it offers to mathematicians. Go is another great and new programming language to learn as it is the fastest-growing languages out there. Ruby is a 24-year old programming language that is great for its code that is easy to read and write. Ruby has an add-on, Rails, which makes it easier for building web apps.



You can also consider learning Groovy, an offshoot of Java, that was incepted in 2007 and has won the hearts of big developers like Google, IBM and Target as it integrates easily with Java code. Other languages include the Objective-C, Perl, Pascal, Swift, MATLAB and Delphi Object Pascal. You can get more details on them here.


When Tammy Mazzocco started in real estate as a secretary, she didn’t know that she would be a top real estate salesperson someday. Her aspirations were not as great then, but she didn’t know as much either. As she worked at more jobs in real estate as a support person, she saw more, and one of the things that impressed her was the economic potential of the business.

So, in 1999, she joined the RE/MAX agency in Pickerington, Ohio, just Southeast of Columbus. She had seen how others had done very well just by showing lots of houses to prospective buyers, so that is what she decided to do. And that is her number one activity today that of taking future home buyers out to look at houses. More details can be found on Spokeo.

Tammy Mazzocco starts her day early with stretching exercises and meditation at home. She gets to her office as early as possible and takes care of the paperwork to “clear the decks” so she can get out and start showing homes to prospective buyers. Once the office work and the emails are taken care of, Tammy is on the phone scheduling appointments with prospective home buyers.

Tammy gets about 80 percent of her work from current customers and referrals. She is especially impressed with the leads that come from agencies such as Zillow and The people who leave their names there are interested in obtaining more information about the area and want to have someone show them around the area. Tammy is more than happy to that, and these are highly motivated people for the most part.

When asked what was the best advice she ever had about selling real estate she replied that she has learned not to take herself too seriously, never fear failure because that is just a temporary situation, and to just keep on working. Someone once told her that if she ever hoped to accomplish anything in life, she has to be moving, so that is what she tries to do, keep moving.

Tammy is very respectful of her clients’ time and investments. She makes every attempt to treat her customers in the same manner as she would prefer to be treated herself. She listens very carefully to her customers to find out exactly what they are looking for in the way of owning a home. You can never be too kind to people, as they appreciate it and are more likely to want to do business with you. More details can be found on Yelp.

Jacob Lief has dedicated his life to raising funds to help the less privileged people in the society. However, he no longer accepts donations from charitable organizations as he says that their funds come with terms and conditions. At the end of the day, this money does not help people, and he even termed it as nonsense. Jacob Lief is known in the Port Elizabeth townships in South Africa for his involvement with Ubuntu Education Fund. With the Ubuntu Education Fund, Jacob Lief is the chief executive officer, and this is an organization that has dedicated its time and resources to helping vulnerable children in the area. He has focused on finding other ways of funding his organization other than depending on donors.


Jacob Lief says that he targets wealthy family foundations and high net worth individuals and says that these two can be very accommodating and understanding. The main aim of his organization is to offer these children healthy life, education and also stability. The organization uses what is called the Ubuntu Model to achieve its missions. Some of the strings that are associated with donors include specification of how the money must be used towards a particular program. Some donors even want to have a hand in the way the organization is run while others want to be consulted on issues related to management. In some cases, disagreements between the two parties can result in a legal battle. According to Andrew Rolfe, wealthy individuals are only interested in seeing their name being part of something whether a building or a scholarship and they are done. They don’t require you to reapply at the end of the year like many non-profits.


Andrew Rolfe of TowerBrook Capital Partners is proud to be associated with Ubuntu Education Fund. In fact, he serves as the chairman of this organization. Other than running the operations of the organization, Andrew Rolfe makes personal donations to help in the day to day activities of the firm. Andrew Rolfe says that the best way to avoid conflicts with involved parties it to have a discussion about the issue earlier on.
