Doxxing Prevention

You don’t have to be a master internet manipulator to know that getting your information leaked can be a big deal in a bad way. Right now one of the biggest threats most people run into when using the computer has nothing to do with banking and everything to do with losing their privacy. When you get ‘doxxed’ you run the risk of having your private information, like your name and personal address, being put into the hands of people who want to do you harm. Darius Fisher, the CEO of reputation management firm Status Labs, decided to talk some preventative tips with doxxing in mind.

The key to stopping yourself from getting doxxed, according to Darius Fisher, is keeping your private information as closed down as possible. In order to do this, Fisher heavily advises taking some time every once in awhile to Google yourself and look up related terms to your name. You’ll want to see just WHAT is going on out there as far as your info is concerned before you can diagnose just how bad the potential of you getting doxxed truly is. Once you’ve found out just how bad your info has been leaked it is time to get proactive.

Now that you know what’s out there you need to start getting a ton of this content removed. Start off by taking down whatever you have personal access to and then begin emailing webmasters who host the other data. If the webmasters don’t comply then you can move on to utilizing a lawyer. A letter from a lawyer will typically get most webmasters to comply.

Now that you’ve gotten much of your content removed you need to focus on keeping it from ever re-appearing. To do this you need to lock down your social media accounts. Fisher’s team advocates pushing all of the security features of your social media to their limits. Limit what people can see and adjust these security measures every couple of months. Get into the habit of changing your passwords and make sure that you are not using the same password too many times.

George Soros Urges EU to Support Ukraine

George Soros is known to be a well respected investment manager and economic development authority. In a series of recent article, the businessman has demonstrated his insight into the conflict on Ukraine, and he has called for increased support from the world community. The European Union is currently facing several structural issues at once, and all of them demand attention and action. Soros feels that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine is pressing, and that the European Union needs to respond, both out of obligation and the threat that this conflict poses to them.

Russia’s aggression has caused the world community to impose aggressive economic sanctions, and these sanctions have done an number on the Russian economy. Coupled with a quick drop in oil prices, this policy has left the Russian economy in shambles. However, this strategy of economic warfare has also emboldened Putin and his anti-western position. In his view, Russia’s problems are solely the result of Western meddling. Soros believes that supporting Ukraine with debt relief and other measures would weaken Putin’s claims and provide an outpost of democracy next to Soviet borders. With financial support for Ukraine , the message from the world community would be clear: Russia’s economic policies are their cause of financial pain, not the west.

However, the European Union finds themselves in a difficult financial situation. This past decade has been a parade of bailouts and austerity, and countries like Greece are still deeply underwater. Furthermore, Ukraine is not part of the Euro zone. Under this lens, it can be difficult to bolster support for Ukraine. This past month has seen the UK vote to leave the European Union, which could pose an existential threat to the agreement. While Britain’s exit is still on hold, the people of the UK sent a strong message with their vote. Soros believes that supporting Ukraine would be a relatively affordable way to increase the strength of the European Union in a time that desperately needs it.

Geottl Cools down with Pets

To protect your pets from the summer heat, Goettl Air company has released several tips to help keep your pets safe. For one, make sure your pets stay off hot pavement. If you can’t place your hand on the pavement for more than 10 seconds, then it’s too hot for your pet’s sensitive paws. Since your pets can’t sweat, it’s important to keep fresh water available for them to prevent dehydration. Make sure to apply sunscreen to your pets that have short light colored fur since they are most in-danger of sunburn. Also, it’s important to keep your pets well groomed to provide better circulation. For more tips on how to keep your pets cool, check the link below.

Goettl Air Company was founded in 1939 and came to the Las Vegas Valley in 1968. After the recession in 2007, the company was purchased by Ken Goodrich and in April 2016 opened a branch office in Las Vegas. Throughout the years they’ve provided quality service with outstanding, long lasting air conditioning units.

Their central air units provides 24/7 repair and routine tune-ups. I live in a very humid area most of the year, so it’s good to know Goettl Air Conditioning is reliable in the rare chance one of their units malfunctions. For more information please look at the links below.
