Most people who use the Internet at all and who browse online for any type of product or so-called ´´free´´ download are going to encounter a virus on their computer. It´s practically inevitable that you will someday inadvertently download a virus. The real question is, ´´Are you going to download a virus without being aware of it?´´ or ´´Will you be equipped to tackle the virus before it lodges itself on your computer´s hard drive?´´ One painful lesson to be learned online is that you should never follow the directions given to you by a website which is trying to infect your computer with an unwanted program or virus. A common tactic to infect your computer is for a website to post the following warning message: ´´You have downloaded a virus!´´ At that point, there will be an option for you to remove the infection by clicking on a particular button, such as ´´OK.´´ Never, ever give in to the temptation to do so. It may take all of your will-power, but if you want to keep your computer´s hard drive clean and running efficiently, do not succumb to the temptation to click that button. The makers of the website know how hard it is to resist the temptation. The moment we believe that our computer´s health is at risk, we will gladly click on whatever button is available. Essentially, the trick is that the website owners and designers have played you into thinking that your own computer is delivering the message that it needs to rid your computer of a virus when, in fact, the website itself is prompting you with its own internal message. 1.

Social media has emerged over the last decade as the most prominent online presence; very few websites are static pages with no updates or interaction anymore. These breakthroughs in technology are supposed to make communication easier, but there can be so many different brands and platforms available, the choice of provider can be daunting. However, our guest Elizabeth Harrin points out that not every option to communicate requires thousands of dollars and long meetings with IT: blogs and wikis are free, easy, and widespread. A simple but effective technological approach can make all the difference to internal communication and to the customer base as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Summers.

Human resources (HR) departments are widely disliked, and job searchers are generally advised to contact the hiring manager directly if they really want to be considered for a job. There are good reasons why HR acts like an arm of the government bureaucrats pressuring companies to hire more protected minorities and women - because that´s what they are, in many companies. From the best-selling author of Avoidant comes a fresh look at HR and the hiring of mediocre employees favored by affirmative action programs. It´s a new age of incompetence, with brain-dead, unaccountable employees holding sinecures at the heart of our government agencies and regulated institutions like banks and hospitals, protected by affirmative action and union policies. The rot is spreading as pressure from state and federal regulation of companies has increased, promoting an internal compliance bureaucracy that has devalued the best job candidates and employees and promoted affirmative action and diversity over team productivity. The result has been ever-more-costly failures and a steep decline in performance. From the mortgage meltdown that brought down the world´s economy in 2008, to the disastrous launch of the healthcare.gov website for Obamacare, major segments of business and government in the US have grown more expensive and less competent over the past few decades. Billions of dollars of waste in government contracts for IT projects, weapons systems, and service failures at the VA are in the news every day. Public schools are widely seen as mediocre, and in the poorest urban districts they are failing to provide a decent education for the students who need good schools the most to make up for bad family backgrounds. Costs for regulated services like schools, colleges, medical insurance, drugs, courts, prisons, and infrastructure like roads and bridges rise far faster than inflation, while time to complete major projects stretches out to decades, and many fail c 1.

Entertainment shows, magazines, websites, and other channels continuously report the latest sightings, heartbreaks, and triumphs of the famous to a seemingly insatiable public. Millions of people go to enormous lengths to achieve fame. Fame is woven into our lives in ways that may have been unimaginable in years past.And yet, is fame even real? Contrary to tangible realities, fame is one of those ´´realities” that we, as a society, have made. Why is that, and what is it about fame that drives us to spend so much time, money, and focus to create the framework that maintains its health?Mining decades of experience, writer, director, producer, and actress Justine Bateman writes a visceral, intimate look at the experience of Fame. Combining the internal reality-shift of the famous, theories on the public’s behavior at each stage of a famous person’s career, and the experiences of other famous performers, Bateman takes the listener inside and outside the emotions of Fame. 1.

It is the juxtaposition of factual and imaginary detail, real and fictitious characters, each underscored by footnotes or website research, that gives Theodore Cohen´s work a signature style [that is] quite unique, enjoyable and thoroughly ingenious. (Gary Sorkin for Pacific Book Review)End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences is book III of the Antarctic Murders Trilogy. In many ways, it brings to an end three things: the sagas of Captain Roberto Muñoz of the Lientur; the hunt for the millions of dollars in US and British cash, negotiable securities, gold coins, and jewelry stolen from the Banco Central de Chile following the Chilean Earthquake of May, 1960; and the murders that followed the robbery.Book I: Frozen in Time: Murder at the Bottom of the World, introduced American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris, who, while performing geological and geophysical field work with the assistance of Captain Roberto Muoz of the Chilean auxiliary tug Lientur, were caught up in the hunt for the robbers and the spoils from the robbery and murder.Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer introduced Captain Mateo Valderas and Lieutenant-Commander Antonio Del Ro of the Chilean Navy´s Office of Internal Affairs. Initially assigned to solve a murder in Africa, they soon found themselves facing perhaps the most vicious, cunning thief and murderer they ever encountered.The return of American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris to Santiago for the purpose of helping personnel of the University of Chile prepare for the 20th Chilean Expedition to the Antarctic, beginning in December 1965, jeopardizes the lives of both scientists. What irrational acts will elicit the tragic consequences that finally bring everything to an end?

Embodying the magic of elemental alchemy Everyone has a driving element, one that is both vice and virtue depending on its state of balance. Calling forth the elements and learning to unify them within you is your greatest asset - and challenge - as a human being. Every minute of every day, we are managing a volatile internal ecosystem: elements, mind, ego, spirit, will, heart, body - the list is endless. These items on their own can feel overwhelming and we have yet to add living to the list. As a result, we end up stuck and paralyzed by inaction, where what should be open terrain becomes an impassable range of mountains. But what those mountains know and can teach us will unlock all that we are meant to be, if we only have the courage to listen and, more importantly, to seek their counsel. What the Mountains Know takes you beyond the world´s deafening noise, to a quiet space - a path that will lead you back to your soul. It is here that you can unify the fragmented elemental particles of the stardust from which you are made, from which we are all made. You were created to play with fire, to make waves, to whip up the wind, to seed the earth, and…to move mountains. What the Mountains Know can be likened to titles such as: A New Earth, The Untethered Soul, Four Agreements and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.Website: www.WhatTheMountainsKnow.comFB/TW/IG: @KnowURMountains 1.
