SORT BY Relevancy
Excerpted from last Thursday's press release by our guest Alfredo Lopez, May 1st IT steering committe member.
Using a Denial of Service attack, hackers crippled servers at May First/People Link hosting the websites of several pro-choice organizations Thursday, July 30.
The target was Fund Abortion Now (http://fundabortionnow.org/), the website of the National Network of Abortion Funds, a national network of pro-choice foundations and organizations and a May First/People Link member.
The attack, which appears to be part of a coordinated, national attack on pro-choice sites (including Planned Parenthood) started in the early morning hours of July 30 and continued for several hours after that.
May First technologists resolved the issue by routing the website traffic through Deflect (https://www.deflect.ca/), a free and open source-based service that assists websites that are under Denial of Service attacks. Deflect reroutes the website traffic through its own specially designed distributed network of servers that can filter out attacks like these before routing it back to May First/People Link. After that move, the website came up and is now functional.
Planned Parenthood, the target of a recent smear campaign by right-wing propagandists, suffered two on-line attacks this week: one involved theft of data from the organization's databases and the other was a Denial of Service attack that brought the organization's site down on Wednesday. Planned Parenthood's site, although recovered, remains off-line today.
May First/People Link is a membership organization specializing in Internet work with members world-wide, primiarily in the United States and Mexico.

Part 1: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly of Mobility and BYOD
There are a lot of advantages to mobility in today’s workforce, but the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) movement has also brought its share of headaches as well.
We live in a society where everyone must have the newest technology. We are inundated with ads reminding us that the smartphone or tablet we just bought a year ago is laughably outdated and inferior to the upgrade that just hit the market.
People who have just bought the latest technology don’t want to have to set it aside to use a separate company-issued device. As a result, businesses are beginning to grant these employee-owned devices access to their file and email servers, databases, and applications.
While this brings certain competitive advantages to employers, it naturally carries many risks, too.
On December 1, 2006, changes relating to electronically stored information ("ESI") in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure took effect. The changes to Rules 16, 26, 33, 34, 37, 45 and Form 35 provide mandates to the preservation, discoverability, production, accessibility, and costs associated with ESI which includes e-mail, word processing documents, spreadsheets, voice mail, databases, and more.
Today, all litigants have a duty to request and disclose responsive electronic evidence in their cases. Whether your cases are small or large, or whether you are a sole practitioner, pro se litigant, or member of a large firm or corporation, discovery issues relating to ESI will have to be addressed and resolved.
The purpose of this audioblog is to introduce legal professionals, paralegals, real estate professionals, corporations, insurance adjusters, and more, on how to comply with electronic discovery requests. We will introduce you to the tools you will need to construct a litigation readiness program for your organization in the event that litigation becomes imminent, pending, or pending.
Throughout the audio series you will learn:
1. The Basics of Electronic Discovery
2. An Electronic Discovery Checklist
3. Requesting Electronic Discovery
4. Responding to an Electronic Discovery Request
5. Amendments to the Federal Rules and State Counterparts
6. "Meet and Confer" Planning
And much more!

Managing technology is a complicated process. Managing the people who develop and deploy technology is even more complicated. Add the pressures that come with a technology startup and it can be enough to drive a rational person to seek solace in a nice, quiet yurt.

Joe Emison is not just able to keep a successful team in motion, though -- he's able to talk about how he does it.
In this episode, host Curtis Franklin talks with Joe about the challenges he faced in starting BuildFax and how he has been able to guide his technology team in adding value to IT in the business. You'll hear how Joe evaluates business requirements, works with other members of the executive team, and makes decisions about the skills and mindset he wants to see in the professionals who join his team.

Lydia (Dia) Crabtree is a minister, author, and pagan activist. She has led a team to create PaganPro.org, website dedicated to sharing information regarding style, background and even abuser/predator behaviors of speakers, presenters and leaders in the Pagan community.
"Pagan Pro is a freemium modeled web based service. Pagan community members can create an account with an email and password and have limited access to the information contained in the Pagan Pro databases. There will be a leveled membership which will allow greater access to the information in the Pagan Pro database and other perks of membership by users. Pagan Pro charges membership to offset the cost of running this not for profit organization.
Pagan Pro will invite leaders to join PaganPro.org and create a profile. This profile will require leaders to answer a series of survey questions that are based upon previous surveys given by Pagan Pro and reflect the information the community has indicated it desires to know. Some answers to the survey questions will be available to all users of the site while membership will permit complete access to information in the Pagan Pro database."

BACKGROUNDS & ASSETT SEARCHES
We conduct all types of Backgrounds from locating missing persons (heirs of an estate) to loved ones and family members.
Missing persons and family members, we locate them by searching computer databases, searching prisons, homeless shelters, Salvation Army, Social Network Sites like Facebook, etc.

Background checks are often requested by employers on job candidates for employment screening, especially on candidates seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust, such as in a school, hospital, financial institution, airport, and government. These checks are traditionally administered by a government agency for a nominal fee, but can also be administered by private companies. Background checks can be expensive depending on the information requested. Results of a background check typically include past employment verification, credit history, and criminal history.
