Think like a hacker: How to protect your business from cyber attacks

Businesses cannot afford to neglect cyber security in 2018. A recent report published by Beaming found that UK businesses are attacked online every 2.5 minutes, with the average firm suffering from 52,596 cyber-attacks between April and June 2018. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to these attacks, as a lack of security/training budget and expertise leaves […]

Someone On Tumblr Explains Why People Divorce, And 1,480,000 People Agree

What is love? This is a burning question that people have pondered over for centuries, inspiring some of the greatest works of art in human history (and 90`s Eurodance singer Haddaway). Yet still, we don`t really know. Sure, science has answered many questions in terms of chemical and hormonal reactions, attraction and the need for companionship, but that doesn`t much help us in terms of how to negotiate our own emotions and relationships.

Thank heavens we regulated Wonga into bankruptcy, right?

Or at least that we managed to regulate Wonga into near bankruptcy. For that’s what was done when we imposed limits upon the interest rates that they can charge. We set their business off into a declining spiral which brought them close to bankruptcy : Britain’s biggest payday lender, Wonga, has received a £10m emergency cash injection from shareholders to save the company from going bust. The short-term loan firm said the development was a way of coping with a surge in claims from former customers seeking compensation. The claims, said Wonga, related to loans taken out before 2014, when outrage over its payday lending offers prompted new rules to cap the cost of borrowing. The thing is, lending small amounts of money to people for short periods of time is something expensive to do . Leading technology venture capital funds Accel Partners and Balderton Capital have taken part in an emergency fundraising in the last few weeks, in news first reported by Sky News. So, when we insist that people don’t charge enough to cover the costs of that expensive thing then they’re likely to go bust : Wonga, which employs about 500 people, has been loss-making for the last few years after encountering a string of regulatory hurdles such as the City watchdog’s cap on the cost of short-term loans. So, as it used to be. Company makes loans with high interest rates. It makes a profit and, obviously, the people taking out the loans were happy enough. Because they took out the loans. This shocks people who practice GoodThink, that people will be charged that much in interest. So, the law is changed so that high interest rates cannot be charged. What happens next? Wonga nearly goes bust and large numbers of people aren’t able to borrow the money they want to. Which is a problem, isn’t it? Because the people taking out the loans obviously believed that the high interest rates were worth it to them. It was other people, those GoodThink types, who stopped them. But the GoodThink types haven’t solved the problem of people needing small loans for short periods of time – that expensive thing to provide – they’ve just made it illegal to do so at a price which makes sense. And yes, it really does work this way. This is the Federal Reserve (like the Bank of England, just in America) on the subject : Even though payday loan fees seem competitive, many reformers have advocated price caps. The Center for Responsible Lending (CRL), a nonprofit created by a credit union and a staunch foe of payday lending, has recommended capping annual rates at 36 percent “to spring the (debt) trap.” The CRL is technically correct, but only because a 36 percent cap eliminates payday loans altogether. If payday lenders earn normal profits when they charge $15 per $100 per two weeks, as the evidence suggests, they must surely lose money at $1.38 per $100 (equivalent to a 36 percent APR.) Cap the prices and you abolish the industry. But you’ve still not solved the problem of people needing the loans, have you?

The enduring mystery of Australia`s unique Elvis Presley memorial

It was the world’s first memorial erected after Presley’s death and the only official monument outside the US. But Presley never visited Melbourne, or even Australia – so what is it doing here? Every year on the anniversary of Elvis’s death, Wayne Hawthorne, the president of the Elvis Presley Fan Club of Victoria, gets up early in the morning and heads to the Melbourne General Cemetery to cleanse of “promotional rubbish” the memorial to the singer he commissioned 41 years ago. “People try to make a buck out of Elvis – ‘We’ve got a function on here at this hotel’, blah blah blah,” Hawthorne says. “These people have nothing to do with the club who built the monument; they’re just trying to make money out of this time of year.” Continue reading...

Comment on Could Emilia Bassano, the ‘woman ignored by history’, be Shakespeare’s Dark Lady? by Jerome Weeks

An American professor, Andrew Harris of the University of North Texas, author of 'The Performing Set' (https://amzn.to/2OGmsMi), wrote a comedy about Bassano in 2013, 'The Lady Revealed,' and actually traced some of her Bassano relatives to Texas. As much as 'The Lady Revealed' is about Bassano and Shakespeare, it's also about A. L. Rowse's supposed discovery of her as 'the Dark Lady.' The play was staged at UNT, then in Dallas and was given a reading at Covent Garden’s Bates Theatre in 2014. https://bit.ly/2nNFSUg

Take part

There’s a war going on in Britain.  All across the country, motorists, councils and private parking companies are fighting each other over one simple thing: parking. In our small, over populated country, 38 million cars are in a daily battle for just 8 million parking spaces. Nothing makes Britons angrier than parking: we are spending […] The post Take part appeared first on Channel 5 .
