Today, at 31, she is an internationally known astrologer, investor and corporate attorney in the high-tech industry who lives in Chicago. Her fascination with astrology has never waned. She continued to study traditional astrology even while attending law school. In addition to work with clients she has taught classes on a variety of astrological subjects, including how to use astrology to elect favorable times for business and investing. Gryphon recently completed a mundane research study that successfully pointed to winners in U. Presidential elections dating to with uncanny accuracy. At the United Astrology Congress UAC earlier this year, she was one of five astrologers on a panel of experts asked to predict the outcome for the Presidential election in the U. All predicted that President Obama would be successful in his bid to win four more years in the White House. In making her call, Gryphon used the same technique and rules she successfully applied in her study of earlier U.
The engines installed were a pair of Gardner 6LYTi engines, the LG series, some of the last engines produced by the Gardner factory and certainly the last engines designed.

Attack tools[ edit ] In cases such as MyDoom the tools are embedded in malware, and launch their attacks without the knowledge of the system owner. Stacheldraht is a classic example of a DDoS tool. It uses a layered structure where the attacker uses a client program to connect to handlers, which are compromised systems that issue commands to the zombie agents , which in turn facilitate the DDoS attack.
Agents are compromised via the handlers by the attacker, using automated routines to exploit vulnerabilities in programs that accept remote connections running on the targeted remote hosts. Each handler can control up to a thousand agents. The LOIC has typically been used in this way. There is an underground market for these in hacker related forums and IRC channels. Other kinds of DoS rely primarily on brute force, flooding the target with an overwhelming flux of packets, oversaturating its connection bandwidth or depleting the target’s system resources.
Bandwidth-saturating floods rely on the attacker having higher bandwidth available than the victim; a common way of achieving this today is via distributed denial-of-service, employing a botnet. Another target of DDoS attacks may be to produce added costs for the application operator, when the latter uses resources based on cloud computing. In this case normally application used resources are tied to a needed Quality of Service level e.
Amazon CloudWatch  to raise more virtual resources from the provider in order to meet the defined QoS levels for the increased requests. The main incentive behind such attacks may be to drive the application owner to raise the elasticity levels in order to handle the increased application traffic, in order to cause financial losses or force them to become less competitive.

Race and crime in the United States Although approximately two-thirds of crack cocaine users are white or Hispanic, a large percentage of people convicted of possession of crack cocaine in federal courts in were black. Within the federal judicial system, a person convicted of possession with intent to distribute powder cocaine carries a five-year sentence for quantities of grams or more while a person convicted of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine faces a five-year sentence for quantities of five grams or more.
With the combination of severe and unbalanced drug possession laws along with the rates of conviction in terms of race, the judicial system has created a huge racial disparity. The law was changed in to reduce disparity; it affected only new cases. The need, according to Senate, was for a retroactive fix to reduce the thousands serving unjustly long sentences after four decades of extreme sentencing policies. Studies have shown it is possible to reduce both prison populations and crime at the same time.
Sentencing commission announced a retroactive reduction in drug sentences following a year-long review, which will result in a mass release of 6, prisoners, all of whom have already served substantial time in prison. This action was done in an effort to immensely reduce overcrowding and provide comfort to wrongfully-accused drug offenders who were sent to jail over the past couple decades.
Some of those to be released will be deported and all will be subject to further judicial review. After taking office the current mayor of NYC declined to continue litigating stop and frisk practices and the number of minorities stopped under the practice dropped dramatically.

A WORD or two of explanation will probably be necessary in order to see the full meaning of this great promise. The Prophet has just been describing a vision of judgment which he saw, in which the high priest, as representative of the nation, stood before the Angel of the Lord as an unclean person. And then follow a series of promises, of which the climax is the one that I have read.
And so the promise of my text, in highly figurative fashion, is that of free and unrestrained approach to God, of a life that is like that of the angels that stand before His Face. So, then, the words suggest to us, first, what a Christian life may be. With regard to the latter, the prerogative of the high priest, who was the recipient of this promise, as to access to the Temple, was a very restricted one.
Circular Service Reservoir Refurbishment 5 October Stonbury were to complete refurbishment works to a service reservoir dating back over a century to give it an additional year lease of life at a fraction of the cost of building a new one. Recent investigations discovered water ingress to the tank and the existing brickwork walls were found to be in a poor state. Stonbury were commissioned to undertake a comprehensive internal refurbishment together with some external repairs.
The project came with a number of challenges — not least carrying out work on the roof internal, where roof vents were allowing in rainwater. This required erecting scaffolding and an extensive area of safety netting. External access to the roof also posed safety risks as the roof had a low load bearing capacity.
Section of the Education Code is amended to read: If the principal or his or her designee chooses to send the written notice, the Legislature encourages the notice be sent no later than the end of business on the second regular work day after the verification. If, at the time of verification, local law enforcement officials determine that notification of the violent crime would hinder an ongoing investigation, the notification authorized by this subdivision shall be made within a reasonable period of time, to be determined by the local law enforcement agency and the school district.
The portions of a school safety plan that include tactical responses to criminal incidents may be developed by administrators of the school district or county office of education in consultation with law enforcement officials and with a representative of an exclusive bargaining unit of employees of that school district or county office of education, if he or she chooses to participate.

History of Technology Heroes and Villains – A little light reading Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved. You may find the Search Engine , the Technology Timeline or the Hall of Fame quicker if you are looking for something or somebody in particular.
Scroll down and see what treasures you can discover. Background We think of a battery today as a source of portable power, but it is no exaggeration to say that the battery is one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind. Volta’s pile was at first a technical curiosity but this new electrochemical phenomenon very quickly opened the door to new branches of both physics and chemistry and a myriad of discoveries, inventions and applications.
The electronics, computers and communications industries, power engineering and much of the chemical industry of today were founded on discoveries made possible by the battery. Pioneers It is often overlooked that throughout the nineteenth century, most of the electrical experimenters, inventors and engineers who made these advances possible had to make their own batteries before they could start their investigations.

As with the other security-related certifications, demand is high and is projected to be so for many years to come, but unlike the others, you can earn an associate credential while working on the required experience, making this a valuable certification for those wanting to get into the security field. There are nearly , certified people worldwide, with approximately two-thirds of them in the United States.
The exam is offered at Pearson Vue Testing centers. It also requires at least five years of experience in IS, with at least three of those as a security manager. Your experience must be within the 10 years before taking the exam or five years after passing it, however unlike the CRISC for which there are no exceptions to the experience requirement, there are some alternatives to the experience requirement for this certification. Continuing education credits are required each year to maintain your certification.
CISSP candidates must have at least five years of full-time, paid experience in at least two of the eight areas tested.
