One is to slow down system responses to that user – a very simple way to make the attack more expensive. Another is the super-cookie mentioned earlier. The principles of super-cookies will already be well-known to regular readers of El Reg, but in short, they're harder to detect than the “standard” (for want of a better word) cookie, and they collect information to more accurately profile the machine they're installed on.

In a review of student survey data conducted in conjunction with the federal exams known as the National Assessment of Educational Progress, the nonprofit Center for American Progress found that middle school math students more commonly used computers for basic drills and practice than to develop sophisticated skills. The report also found that no state was collecting data to evaluate whether technology investments were actually improving student achievement.

infozone's curator insight, June 12, 2013 11:21 PM

There are many different aspects of car ownerships that are not ideal for someone who hardly ever drives. Individuals who live in metropolitan areas can find themselves without a place to park their vehicles for long periods of time, as well as all-consuming traffic and high gas prices. In major cities, most businesses are close together rather than spread out over many miles, and as such do not require much driving to access. Because of this, owning a car can be more of a burden than a luxury.


For city-dwellers, more attractive transportation options include taxis, buses, and subway systems. These have a much lower “cost of ownership” than vehicles, because they are not maintained by the rider. Bus passes can be purchased for frequent riders who commute to work, and a variety of subway and train companies offer discounts to employees of businesses who require frequent commuting. Subway systems allow for a 24 hour access to any part of the city at a negligible cost. These different methods of commuting allow riders to have many different options. Paying for car insurance and maintenance can get expensive, and is not always worth the convenience. The timely schedule and process of riding a bus or train means that there are no surprises.


http://www.superpages.com/supertips/top-10-advantages-renting-a-car.html



Sometimes, car rental in singapore is necessary in order to move or travel exceptionally long distances cheaply. Rental and sharing companies provide their customers with a large number of vehicles to choose from. Larger rental companies typically have a fleet of some of the latest vehicles, but can charge more than sharing businesses. The first step in determining the final cost is the type of vehicle that is desired. Larger and more performance-heavy cars cost more to rent than more economical rides, because they are more expensive for the business to insure. A van can be procured for a family trip over the summer, while a flashier ride can be rented for a night on the town. Choosing the right car does not stop at its make and model. Checking the body for any dents or scratches is important, and even taking the car on a test drive before deciding fully. This helps to prevent future problems with company vehicles that are not maintained properly.


Car sharing is a relatively new concept that many people are catching on to. Even if an individual already owns a vehicle, sometimes another type is needed, such as moving vans or family vans. Sharing companies offer a wide network of private owners who can offer their vehicles to others for a low hourly rate. This enables customers to choose more specific makes and models, and to get a cheaper price for only renting the vehicle a few hours at a time.

I disagree Jane. It would be great if everything were able to be accessible to everyone, but that is simply not the reality. We can't homogenise visual art into an accessible form, simply because some people can't see the fine details. That would be as wrong as never considering visually impaired persons, for example.

The advent of the internet means that more people are looking into marketing and advertising online, whether through banner ads or search engine optimization services.


The internet has caused a surge of new marketing jobs to be available for this sector of the economy. There are no more black and white techniques used to appeal to a wide range of people at once. Instead, careful study of smaller and more willing demographics is essential to understanding the buying climate of that part of the economy. 


Being able to capture the mobile market is becoming all the more important for people in marketing. Advertising is a new method of reaching an audience that looks at their phone screen for a majority of the day. Thus, appealing to a mass market of consumers through applications and small sample purchases are a great way to make a profit off of the increased screen time per day. Mobile-geared advertisements can include animated graphics or even a short commercial clip.


http://www.businessmanagementdaily.com/free-customizable-downloads/job-descriptions/marketing-job-descriptions


The data storyteller is an individual who not only collects data, but is able to effectively analyze into marketing terms that the company can work with on advertising. This data can be everything from social networking polls to the number of users visiting a particular site per month. Other techniques include detecting patterns in collected data as well as new trends that can appear due to a world event or economic strife and prosperity. This important job works to make profitable a part of advertising that is crucial to reaching a wide variety of consumers


Someone who is into the details of marketing will work to make sure that each aspect of advertising has a distinctive brand feel to it, no matter how small or innocuous. Gift cards can reveal a lot about the spirit of the company, such as special holiday designs or throwback details that make them appeal to an older market that may have gone astray over the years. Appealing to both new and old consumers through brand identity is a great way to create a following for a particular brand.


Traditional marketing specialists are trained in modern advertising techniques and are always learning of new ways to reach out to customers in the most efficient and effective way. This means learning new technologies and how to best utilize them to showcase new products or reintroduce old ones. Specialists in this field can effectively brand and exemplify the spirit of the company in a way that reaches out to the largest demographic. Marketing directors ensure that there is a yearly quota being met, and the various advertising goals set out by the company. This includes deciding what to invest in in terms of advertising and marketing, as well as accompanying events and large corporate gatherings to further enhance the company’s image.

Making an Office Desk Comfortable

infozone's curator insight, June 12, 2013 11:25 PM

Many people have to sit at an office desk every day, leading to back and joint problems that can persist for a lifetime. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to have a comfortable workstation.


The most important piece of office equipment is the desk chair. It provides comfort and stability in the hectic office environment, and is also the best item to prevent future back pain and other problems. A soft, molding chair is ideal for someone who works on the computer all day, as it effectively moves with the sitter to provide the most protection and comfort. Some chairs are even meant to be used in conjunction with their arm rests to provide ample support for typists.


Comfort and personal health are very important when it comes to working long hours while sitting. As such, the added expense of purchasing a high-end chair is well worth the price. These tend to last for years, and mold with age when made of leather or other soft materials. A nice chair will go a long way in helping an individual enjoy their work more, boosting overall productivity.


http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/monitor-channel-218/where-find-monitor-arm-clamp-mount-3055658.html


For those that work in a home environment or in a larger, personal office space, having a separate sitting area can be an effective method of taking a break from even the most comfortable desk chair. By having a different area to relax, it creates a personal “me-time” moment where work can take a back seat for a few minutes. This prevents the dreaded “desk lunch” and also offers additional comfort of a personal space nearby. For more creative types, having a futon or sofa can provide an area to brainstorm and dream up new ideas for projects.


A big part of doing work at a desk is the amount of light available during work hours. Darker, less lit areas tend to make people more depressive and not want to work as well as someone with a well-lit workstation. As such, opening blinds or windows to bring in fresh air is a good idea for someone with the right environment. Being able to hear birds and other forms of nature can relax the mind into becoming more productive and willing to work.


A clean desk is a happy desk, and keeping it organized goes a long way in providing a work-centric environment. Lunch should not be taken every day at the desk. Instead, eating in a communal cafeteria at a large building or at a separate sitting area is a better idea. Being sure to include breaks each day is the best way to boost creative juices and ensure that the day is productive in the best way possible.
