Avoiding online scams | Stuff.co.nz - 0 views

  •  
    It's Scam Awareness Week, and David Hall has some tips to keep you safe online.

    Phishing is essentially an online scam, and phishers are nothing more than tech-savvy con artists.

    Online scams constantly evolve to reflect popular events in the news. They're successful is because a scam is not about physically attacking a computer, rather fooling the user into clicking on a poisoned link. They use spam, malicious websites, email messages and instant messages to trick people into divulging sensitive information, such as bank and credit card accounts.

    According to the latest Norton Cybercrime Report, more than 868,206 New Zealanders fell victim to cybercrime in 2010, suffering $288.2 million in direct financial losses.

    Phishers may use email to request personal information and direct recipients to respond through malicious websites.
    Look out for phishers using emotional language, scare tactics or urgent requests to entice recipients to respond.

    Phishing sites can look remarkably legitimate, because they tend to use the copyrighted images from legitimate sites.
    Be on the lookout for requests for confidential information via email or instant message.

    Remember that fraudulent messages are often not personalised and poorly written.

    Lastly, think about any offer, any advertisement, any email, and website before you act on any request. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

    Norton has several free and premium products that can help protect against online scams.

    Norton Mobile Security Lite protects your mobile device against loss, theft and malware. Safeguard against malicious URLs by scanning your Facebook feed using Norton Safe Web, which protects your friends by advising them of malicious links.

    The Norton Snap QR Code Reader protects your mobile device from online threats by warning you of dangerous QR codes and blocking unsafe websites before they load on your device.

Buying second hand doesn't add up | Easier - 0 views

  •  
    Stop dreaming of how your home could look and buy your dream property at Hillside Park in Stoke with help from Elan Homes.

    Featuring a selection of three and four-bedroom homes, Hillside Park is the ideal choice for families looking for a new home in the Norton area.

    Elan invests great care and attention to detail into all of its homes with stylish, modern appliances and the best fixtures and fittings throughout.

    Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the north, explains: "Hillside Park is really starting to take shape and visitors can get a real feel for the development now as there's more for them to see - in fact we can now show them around a finished example of each house type. Being able to view a property really fires up people's imaginations and enables them to visualise how their belongings would look and what life could be like in a new home."

    Prices at Hillside Park range from £124,995 for a Cheltenham style home with three bedrooms, to £199,995 for the final four-bedroom property in the current phase.

    The four-bedroom Malvern is spacious family home featuring an open plan layout with combined kitchen, dining area and family room, separate lounge and cloaks to the ground floor; upstairs the en-suite shower room to the master bedroom complements the family bathroom.

    "When you compare the cost of repairing, renovating and running an older property to buying a new one, buying second hand simply doesn't add up," Marie adds.

    "Instead of seeing the potential of an older property and maybe having to knock down walls and replace the kitchen cabinets, bathroom suite or heating system, our customers can buy their dream home and move in almost straight away."

    The homes at Hillside Park don't just look great, but are practical too. As they are built to impressively high insulation standards, they are more energy efficient and therefore should be cheaper to run than a second hand property.

    "The standard specification includes

Drug shortage hits hospitals, pharmacists, patients - New Brunswick - CBC News - 0 views

  •  
    Patients, pharmacies and hospitals in New Brunswick are feeling the ripple effects of a temporary stop in production by one of the country's largest medical drug producers, Sandoz Canada in Quebec.

    In Dieppe, pharmacist Dennis Abud said that he is running out of several medications, including injectable painkillers like morphine. The shortage has been affecting his patients.

    Abud said that in some cases he has managed to provide patients with the drugs they need, but not in a timely fashion.

    "My staff got together and did a couple of phone calls and figured out a way to get it to the patient. But I don't know if that patient waited in pain for a while."

    Sandoz Canada - one of the country's leading suppliers of generic cancer and heart medications - announced in late February that it was temporarily suspending production at its Boucherville, Que., facility.

    Sandoz has scaled back production of certain drugs - mostly painkillers, antibiotics and anaesthetics - to upgrade operations after quality-control assessments by the FDA warned the factory fell short of its standards.

    To exacerbate supply concerns, a fire Sunday in the ceiling above the boiler room of Sandoz's Boucherville plant has halted all production until at least Monday, and the company says it is assessing any impact to product supply.

    "I got on the phone and tried to order some new product and it was already too late," Abud said. "It's been really frustrating for pharmacists."

    John Staples, a Moncton pharmacist, said that the problem is not new. "It's been going on for two years," he said. "Sometimes they say there's none anywhere in the city."

    Both health networks in New Brunswick are keeping a close eye on the situation.

    "It is an exhaustive process. We've got pharmacists and administrative staff at all of our hospitals, going through all of our inventory numbers, looking at all the specific medications," said Luc Foulem, a spokesperson for Vitalite Health Network.

Norton Scientific Reviews: Google Accused of Bypassing Cookie Protection : : Norton Sci... - 0 views

  •  
    Google is apparently guilty of bypassing default privacy settings in browsers to install tracking cookies. Such cookies will enable Google to track the web activity of users using Safari (i.e. any Apple devices), something that the search engine company claimed as an accident. However, Microsoft announced that Google is also doing the same thing in their browser, Internet Explorer. (And as it turned out, it's not only Google that is guilty of overriding privacy settings but also Facebook.)
     
    Browsers that have P3P are capable of blocking or allowing cookies depending on the privacy settings of the user. The thing is, P3P only depends on websites to give a description of them such as what they will do with data they will get from tracking users. By default, IE blocks third-party cookies unless the website shows a P3P Compact Policy Statement showing how it intends to use the cookie and promising not to track the user.
     
    In effect, Google is committing a scam by tricking the browser by sending a text that will enable 3rd-party cookies to be allowed. Google denies tracking of users but admits that it unintentionally places ads cookies on smartphones against the user' wishes.

DRG sees what develops | Features | C21Media - 0 views

  •  
    UK distributor DRG is hoping to meet demand for long-running drama by developing original content. Michael Pickard reports.


    Anke Stoll
    When executives from DRG arrive in Cannes next week for the start of MipTV, their sales catalogue won't be the only thing occupying their time.

    For the first time, DRG is moving into developing original content, specifically drama, in a move that it hopes will create new opportunities to sell longform series to buyers who demand more bang for their buck.

    "There are fewer commissions and, particularly in the UK, much shorter runs get ordered, like 3x60' or 4x60', which don't sell internationally or are difficult sells," says Anke Stoll, head of acquisitions, coproductions and development at DRG.

    Norton: Donald Roberts, "Scientific Fraud", and DDT
    In this piece Roger Bate, Donald Roberts and Richard Tren accuse the UN of "Scientific Fraud against DDT". Their Accusation is based on an Opinion paper byRoberts and Tren published in Research and Reports in Tropical Medicine. So let's look at their paper and see where the "Scientific Fraud" is.

    Roberts and Tren's key argument is that reductions in malaria in the Americas were not the result of Global Environmental Facility interventions but were caused by increased use of antimalarial drugs. In their own words:

    "However, their successes were not a result of the interventions we describe as components of the GEF project. Their successes were mostly a result of wide distributions of antimalarial drug

Norton Scientific: Invisible Man - 0 views

  •  
    Invisible Man is a novel written by Ralph Ellison, and the only one that he published during his lifetime (his other novels were published posthumously). It won him the National Book Award in 1953. The novel addresses many of the social and intellectual issues facing African-Americans in the early twentieth century, including black nationalism, the relationship between black identity andMarxism, and the reformist racialpolicies of Booker T. Washington, as well as issues of individuality and personal identity.

    In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Invisible Man nineteenth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.Time magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005
    Historical background
    In his introduction to the 30th Anniversary Edition of Invisible Man,[2] Ellison says that he started writingthe book in a barn inWaitsfield, Vermont in the summer of 1945 while on sick leave from the Merchant Marine and that the novel continued to preoccupy him in various parts of New York City. In an interview in The Paris Review 1955,[3] Ellison states that the book took five years to complete with one year off for what he termed an "ill-conceived short novel." Invisible Man was published as a whole in 1952; however, copyright dates show the initial publication date as 1947, 1948, indicating that Ellison had published a section of the book prior to full publication. That section was the famous "Battle Royal" scene, which had been shown to Cyril Connolly, the editor of Horizonmagazine by Frank Taylor, one of Ellison's early supporters.
