Symantec Claims That Blogs Spread More Malware Than Porn Websites
2012-05-26 07:30:00
In what seems to be a very strange yet interesting report, Internet Security Company Symantec has listed Blogs and Web Communication tools as being more dangerous than pornography websites. This news is at complete odds with the established belief that the shady folks over at all those pornography websites are always filling up your computer with the bad stuff! Whenever someone’s device or account gets compromised with spam, viruses and trojans, judgements are swiftly made about the person’s nefarious browsing habits! And now, Symantec has potentially turned that notion on its head with this report. The report is called Internet Security Threat Report based on the trends of 2011. It is fairly detailed and this amazing fact comes up when they list the top 10 genre websites that may lead to a higher risk of getting infected with malware and other less desirable things.   Here is the list of the website types that are dangerous: Blogs and Web communication Hosting and pe...

What is Small Claims court like?
2012-04-04 08:47:00
After 20 years of being a landlord, I finally got a deadbeat tenant who moved out with 4 months of rent owed. I never attempted evict because she is a recently divorced, single mother, and she seemed like an honest person when she first moved in.Also she moved out in the middle of the month before the lease was up but I agreed that she could move out but required her to pay for the full month although nothing is mentioned about this on the lease. Should I charge her for the full month or prorate when I fill out the small claims amount?I have never been to small claims court and don't know what to expect. Could someone please explains what happens and what it is like? Also what are the chances that I will lose the judgement? The tenant actually has a higher annual gross income than I do.

2012-03-28 15:31:00
An Israel company by the name of Thrombotech claims to have improved a drug used by doctors to help save stroke victims lives. Rather than venture into the complicated and historically unsuccessful realm of trying to develop new neuro-protectant drugs, Thrombotech devised a technology to make the existing stroke treatment, tPA, more potent and effective. The synthetic peptide, dubbed THR-18, came out of research at the Hadassah-Ein Karem Medical Center carried out by Arab-Israeli Prof. Abdel-Raouf Hijazi. THR-18 binds with tPA, giving the clot-buster more firepower and increasing the time window during which tPA can be effective, from three hours to nine hours. Pre-clinical studies suggest that THR-18 significantly reduces the dangerous potential side effects of tPA, too. (Israel 21st Century) The company is attempting to begin clinical trials within Israel, the US and Europe although it will not be available to the masses until 2017 at the very earliest.

iOS Apps More Unstable Than Android Ones, Claims Study
2012-02-07 08:37:00
The battle between the mobile operating systems is getting interesting. There are only two of them at the top, iOS and Android. Many an article and blog post have tried to explain why one is better than the other. iOS is currently at 5.0.1 and Android is at 4.0.3 in terms of version numbers and both bring roughly the same features to the table. Android has introduced some new features like Bump and Face Recognition with Ice Cream Sandwich. According to many developers iOS is a closed system in terms of modding, customizing and hacking whereas Android is open. Both these approaches are unique and have their own benefits although iOS has been said to have the best apps and consistent user experience in its ecosystem. According to a latest study by mobile application monitoring company Crittercism, iOS apps crash much more often than Android apps which is a surprising thing. Apparently, more applications are crashing specifically in iOS 5.0.1 amounting to as much as 28.64% as compa...

It's Time to Respect the Fame Requirement for Dilution Claims
2011-11-30 05:42:00
This is becoming a pet peeve of mine. Actually, it?s more than a pet peeve. I think it?s a Rule 11 violation: pleading dilution as a cause of action when the mark at issue isn?t even colorably famous. When the Trademark Dilution Revision Act was enacted, on October 6, 2006, Congress set a high standard for the amount of fame a mark must have before its owner can benefit from the super-trademark protection the dilution statute provides. It states: ?a mark is famous if it is widely recognized by the general consuming public of the United States as a designation of source of the goods or services of the mark?s owner.? See 15 U.S.C. 1125(c)(2)(A). In other words, it needs to be a household name.

Sai Baba of Shirdi: Sathya Sai Baba?s Tall Claims (Part 1)
2011-10-05 09:52:00
A few days back, Robert Priddy posted about Sathya Sai Baba's claims to have incarnated the major Indian saint Shirdi Sai Baba. See: Shirdi Sai stated ?I am not God?, while Sathya misrepresented him For those interested in looking at a few of the issues involved in such spectacular claims, I shall, in the next few days, further give some comments and links. On his way to becoming his own notion of Avatar of all Avatars, did Sathya Sai Baba truly believe that he had incarnated in the 19th century in the north-west Indian state of Maharashtra? Or was he shrewdly aware of practising a deception? My own guess is that, like others who have extraordinary inner experiences, he may have been in the grip of very powerful aspects of mind - especially the right brain - of which we understand far too little. In certain unusual states of mind, an individual believes that extraordinary, real-seeming experiences are actually God's voice speaking out of a burning bush to Moses. Actually, Al...

2011-08-13 20:40:00
In a controversial interview, constitutional historian David Starkey has provoked outrage by claiming that the recent riots were not in fact protests but where a result of the oppression and ostracising of white scholarly historians from mainstream culture. ?We were showing authority that we can do whatever we like. If we want to write hefty tomes after studying the Wives of Henry VIII then we will,? said Starkey yesterday. ?These riots will keep happening until the government does something for us, say by increasing research funding into Tudor history.? Mr Starkey was speaking during an interview in which he defended the mass looting and lawlessness that appears to have been perpetrated by groups of masked historians and economists as they smashed the windows of Waterstones, Foyles and antiques shops everywhere. ?It was terrible, they just charged in and took everything I had on Queen Elizabeth I, everything was gone,? said a specialist bookshop owner in Eltham. ?They screamed a...
Louis Walsh Angered Over Claims He Spotted Talent In Dublin Night-Club

Beware the False Claims Act
2011-06-06 20:35:00
By: Edward T. DeLisle Pursuant to the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 (CDA), every claim on a federal construction project that is in excess of $100,000 must be certified. The reasoning behind this policy is simple: the government wants to discourage the submission of questionable and/or inflated claims. As such, for each claim in excess of the threshold amount, a contractor must append the following language to its claim: I certify that the claim is made in good faith; that the supporting data are accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief; that the amount requested accurately reflects the contract adjustment for which the Contractor believes the Government is liable; and that I am duly authorized to certify the claim on behalf of the Contractor. If a contractor submits a claim that it has reason to believe runs afoul of this affirmation, it is subject to a variety of penalties. Those set forth in the False Claims Act (FCA) are the most daunting and represent tho...
