SORT BY Relevancy
Memorial Day and Veteran's Day often get equated, but there is an essential distinction between the two. Veteran's Day honors all who have served the American military in wars. Memorial Day honors those who've perished. It's an annual reminder that wars have grave human costs, which must be both recognized and minimized.
Those costs are not inevitable. We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce them, to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters. Dylan Matthew VOX
Today, I will again lift a pint of ale in memory of my three friends and their comrades who died in Vietnam.
I honor them without honoring the aggressive and unjust war in which they fought.I don't know what their motivation was to join the military, maybe it was simply that the draft gave them no choice, but it really doesn't matter. What I do know for sure is that their lives were unnecessarily cut short. Sam Webb
After a serious cybersecurity incident, everyone will be looking to you for answers -- but you’ll never have complete information and you’ll never have enough time. So in those heated moments, when a business is on the brink of collapse, how will you and the rest of the board room executives respond?
Wouldn’t it be nice to know ahead of time? That’s the purpose of incident response war gaming. In such an exercise, an organization’s key leaders must guide their business through the rocky days following a major security breach, with all the media pitfalls, law suits, sales hits, morale slumps, stock dives and other threats that may come with it.
On the next episode of Dark Reading Radio, learn how war gaming works and hear some major lessons learned from these exercises. Our guest will be Emily Mossburg, who leads the war gaming efforts for Deloitte Cyber Risk Services. Join us at Wednesday, May 27 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
It is 70 years since the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet soldiers and still stories of the Holocaust remain untold. Two of those stories are brought to light thanks to the miracle of film.

STRESSED? (15 minute show, short but SWEET). Join the club. But then get over the stress and thrive. How do you deal with a crazy world full of BS, racism, sexism, lies, rape, war, theft ... did I say racism? :-( We can either explode and react in a very violent way, it ain't that hard, but the system is waiting for that so they can kill or jail the individual and blame the entire community (REX 84) or you can withdraw and become depressed, and stay in a shell waiting for your number at age 60 or 90. Another alternative, live life fully, realize what is in your control and what isn't and take things in stride. Do what you can when you can with what you have, for other things put them on the back burner, and for ever things else in the words of Mr. Alphabet, abcde F it. I hope you benefit from my experiences: Molested, lived on street, emotionally tortured, physically abused in other ways, financial damnation, hunger, suicide attempts, etc. And here I am, about to make another birthday, and lived beyond most of my heroes. Damn. It ain't easy, but I think I'm getting the hang of life. Thank you.
