How to Secure Wordpress Website? | Vodien Blog - Vodien

How to Secure Wordpress Website? | Vodien Blog - Vodien | Tech Trends | Scoop.it
In 2015, Google revealed that they have seen an 180% increase in websites being hacked. And that news is still a perennial problem until today. Since WordPress is the most widely-used open-source CMS (Content Management System), hackers are more likely drawn to WordPress sites so they can take over as many websites as they can to serve their own vile purposes.

While the people behind WordPress are doing their best to keep it secure, it is still a flexible platform–where one can inject it with different plugins or themes to suit the owner’s tastes. It is possible that not all of these extensions have secure coding standards which can pose a security problem for the website. So we encourage you to take a proactive step in securing your website. You just don’t know, your website could be the next target until it’s too late.

In this article, we will help you with effective ways you can maintain a secure WordPress website from unauthorized access and other cyber threats.

Three years after its discovery, physicists are still fascinated by the Higgs boson’s secrets

Three years after its discovery, physicists are still fascinated by the Higgs boson’s secrets | Tech Trends | Scoop.it
When Paul Glaysher was approaching the end of his master’s degree in 2012, everyone was talking about the Higgs boson. After two years of smashing protons together, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider was about to bring the mysterious particle—it helps explain how the universe got its mass—out of the theoretical realm. Students who landed a spot on a LHC research team had a chance to aid the biggest discovery in modern physics.

Glaysher bit. Then, two months before he started his PhD program with the University of Edinburgh’s CERN team, the LHC’s ATLAS and CMS experiments announced they had found the Higgs boson.

“It was a bit sad,” Glaysher says. “They waited 50 years to find it, and couldn’t wait the extra two months until I was part of the party.”

The three years that followed were a champagne-fueled hangover. Further data confirmed the Higgs discovery, and then the collider shut down for a two-year upgrade that more than doubled its particle-smashing power.

This summer, the LHC’s long-awaited restart came with a new promise: the chance to spot larger particles never before created in a human-made particle accelerator. Physicists believe they might glimpse the particles that make up dark matter—the unknown substance thought to make up a quarter of the universe—or even hints of other dimensions.

But despite the chance to study exotic new particles, Glaysher finds himself three and a half years later still studying the Higgs boson for the ATLAS experiment. Instead of spending his entire life chasing a specter, he’s examining something very real.

“Discovery—as exciting as it is, as Nobel-prize-generating as it may be—it’s actually just the first step,” Glaysher says. Theorists and other researchers at the collider agree with him. They think the Higgs could find them some new physics yet.

3 Main Reasons Why You Should Not Ignore Your Page Speed | Tech Trends | Scoop.it
Whether we are aware of it or not, users’ attention span have gotten  a lot shorter as the latest technology ushers in more advanced and data-hungry smartphones and tablets.
