Government Conspiracies: Just Like In The Movies

''

The government is plagued with controversies throughout the years. Whether it involves the personal lives of government officials, scandals in office or issues on international relations, the government does not run out of interesting stories that the public may or may not know of.

From issues of infidelity and abuse of power to wiretapping issues, the government office is just as interesting as any popular movie plot. And just recently, President Donald Trump accused the former U.S. president Barrack Obama of spying on him last year just below the election took place.

There was high drama last week when Rep. Devin Nunes announced at the White House that he had seen evidence that the communications of the Donald Trump campaign people, and perhaps even Trump himself, had been “incidentally collected” by the US government.

If true, this means that someone authorized the monitoring of Trump campaign communications using Section 702 of the FISA Act. Could it have been then-President Obama? We don’t know. Could it have been other political enemies looking for something to harm the Trump campaign or presidency?

How Safe Is Your Computer During The Airline Ban?

Air travel – especially long flights – can bring out the best or worst in people. Being cooped up in your seat for hours and hours on end can leave you bored and easily annoyed. Parents with young kids in tow are even more stressed out as traveling on a plane with toddlers, for instance, is a likely recipe for disaster. Fortunately, electronic gadgets like tablets and computers make air travel a little bit bearable for most of us. It can keep both the young and the old entertained as our destination gets nearer.

The most recent electronics airline ban (refers to any electronic gadget that is bigger than the usual smartphone device) requires travelers from eight North African and Middle Eastern countries to check in their electronic devices during travel to the United States. And just a couple days ago, the U.K. also imposed the same security measures.

The United States announced a new rule that bans bigger-than-a-smartphone electronics from the airline cabin on certain flights to the United States including laptops, tablets and cameras. The rules apply to

The Business Of Education

''

As a young child, we were told that education is the key to a bright future. All parents tell that to their children and we hear that over and over again as we grow up. But cliché as it may seem, parents know best. Education equips a young person with the knowledge, skills, and attitude you need to face the real world someday and practice the profession you have chosen.

While being street smart always come in handy in the real world, being educated is an edge you have over other people in the workforce. Moreover, you can qualify for more specific job roles that require specific training and education in the field with a degree in your hand. The downside is that education is expensive. If you can manage to graduate at all, you’d likely have accumulated a lot of student debt that will take years before you can finally pay off.

We’ve all heard the many pundits and researchers claim that our country’s current educational model is simply not sustainable for the vast majority of students and families

Medical Marijuana Use In The U.S.

''

Controversies are common in the field of Medicine. From controversial animal and human testing to untested ingredients and technologies, medicine is always buzzing with rumors and non-facts.

For something that has been around and used for ages, the experts can’t still agree when it comes to medical marijuana. Since medical cannabis use is not legal in many U.S. states, people have been using it under the radar. But that is about to change if the Medical Marijuana law will be passed in the country.

First off, its use is already legal in some states and other states are already discussing it in Congress. Many people rally for its approval because they believe medical marijuana can offer relief and cure to many of today’s diseases.

The Medical Cannabis Act has made its way past the first hurdle of many on the road to becoming law in Nebraska. It was approved for a hearing by the full legislature by the Judiciary Committee with a 6-1 vote, of which five of the six in favor were sponsors of the bill. Introduced

Trouble Ahead: Is Your Home Ready For Spring?

''

While many of us have been busy designing our homes over the holidays and spreading holiday cheer, we were mostly cooped up inside either because of the chilly weather or too much snow. Since the last part of last year until early this month, the weather has been mostly cold and dreadful. But as Spring is fast approaching and the weather improves, the outdoors seems like a great place to be in.

San Diego dwellers can hit the beaches once more and frolic under the sun. While Spring is the best time to show off more skin and enjoy the beauty of nature, it is also the perfect time to assess the condition of your home and do some much-needed Spring cleaning. Our homes go through a lot because of the changing of the seasons and winter is especially hard for it too. Our homes’ exterior especially our roof and walls have to battle the elements and keep everyone stay safe and warm inside.

While your heater was in full-mode last Winter, your AC will likely be working all day …

The Edge Of An Apple Macbook

''

Mac users are usually long-time Apple users. From using the bulky old Macs to the more modern and sleek Macbook Pros, they have established a strong bond between them and their device. No one will argue that Macbooks are great. And they are also built to last a long time, unlike most Windows PC. Older Mac models and newer Macbook pros, they all do the same job. Mac users do not feel that they need to continually make an upgrade because their device still works.

But while the majority won’t trade their Macbooks for a Windows PC anytime soon, a growing number of Mac users are actually considering of making the switch from Mac to Windows because of lingering hard drive problems.

There are lots of things that Apple needs to fix, but one of the most glaring right now is the product line. Sure, we’re on the usual annual cycle of iPhone upgrades. We’ve seen new iPads in recent memory. But what about the Mac? The venerable computer that used to be Apple’s core product is now just

Reboot Your Macbook Pro

''

Technology is continually progressing and computing updates are constantly released to refine computer features for a smooth computing experience. There have been many creative names given to the operating systems of android smartphones while Windows OS remained in the backseat and did its thing, there has been little talk regarding Apple iOS much more that of an update.

And over the years, the lack of updates and new releases from the Apple’s Macbook line is a cause of concern for Macbook users who are wondering when they can upgrade their computers to match their growing computing needs. The Apple computer line is also not immune from various iOS issues. Let’s take the macOS Sierra, for instance, which made its debut last year and a couple of issues you immediately face once using this operating system.

Before installing macOS Sierra, uninstall or disable any antivirus software on your Mac, as that may be causing issues.

Press the power button on your machine while holding down the Shift key on your keyboard. Boot your Mac into Safe mode, then try installing

Protecting Your Server From Hackers

''

Most businesses, offices, and organizations have now gone digital. It means that most processes are no longer done the usual pen and paper way but rather computerized. Important company or business records or files are encoded on a computer for ease of use and convenience. You can just pull one up when you need it and no longer need to sort through piles of documents to get what you need.

No matter how convenient this advanced technology has made everyone’s life, it also has its flaws. Computer servers are at high risk of hacking. Hackers will do their best to steal important data for profit or mess with a server’s system to show the world how unstoppable they have become.

Even big companies like Apple have server issues. And Apple will not sit around and put at risk the safety and security of their users and their data.

A new report today from The Information shares that Apple found potential security issues with at least one server early last year. Apple purchased the server from Super Micro Computer and
