Are the days of passwords coming to an end?

Posted on by

first_imgby: Karen GordonForgotten passwords are an all too common customer experience. The typical scenario is to make a few guesses, hope you don’t get locked out of your account, and eventually end up resetting your password only to forget it the next time you need it. And if that isn’t enough, try logging in to your bank account from an unknown device. This requires answering a set of authentication questions covering the gamut from your first pet’s name to your high school mascot. It’s frustrating and inconvenient, but necessary to keep accounts secure. Until biometrics that is.Where we are nowKnowledge based identification is easy and known, but it is not foolproof. So much for those personal questions that only you can answer. Nearly every detail about most people can be found online these days, thanks to social media accounts. User names and passwords are also subject to theft and subsequent fraudulent activity. Recall the 2014 incident where a Russian crime ring stole 1.2 billion of these credentials along with 500 million emails. Many people use the same password for all of their accounts, so an email hack can quickly become a full scale financial attack. Current account security measures are fallible and cause user frustration when it comes time to recall passwords or other authentication steps. The move toward biometrics may provide both convenience and higher security. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgErick Fedde replaced Scherzer for the second inning after warming up in the bottom of the first. Prior to Wednesday, he had started twice this season for the Nats, allowing three earned runs in 7 1/3 innings. He gave up a run in three innings of long relief vs. New York, which won the game 3-1.Washington was already down a starter with Stephen Strasburg nursing a nerve issue in his pitching hand. For now, it appears as if it will not also lose Scherzer.This article has been updated. Nationals ace Max Scherzer left his start vs. the Mets on Wednesday night in Washington after one inning.The right-hander told reporters (including from The Washington Post, The Athletic and MASN) after the game that he was dealing with a hamstring tweak that occurred Tuesday while he was running. Scherzer said that he suffered a similar tweak last week, also while running, prior to his start vs. the Blue Jays. He listed himself as day to day, and he expects to take his next scheduled turn in the Nats’ rotation.MORE: Inside Mets OF Billy Hamilton’s odd trip to D.C.Scherzer allowed just a run in his outing, on a sacrifice fly by Dominic Smith, but his fastball was only in the 92-94 mph range.

Monmouth Arts Continues to Paint a Colorful Picture

Posted on by

first_imgTeresa Staub, the new executive director of Monmouth Arts, helps spread the news of the group’s work in the arts.By Mary Ann Bourbeau |RED BANK – Monmouth Arts, the county’s official arts agency, is dedicated to promoting a vibrant arts community that enhances the quality of life for all of its residents.Teresa Staub took over in February as executive director and she’s looking forward to getting the word out about the organization to both artists and residents alike. Staub worked as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society for 11 years. Her daughter became involved with Phoenix Productions in Red Bank, and instead of waiting for her in the car, Staub started helping the theater group with props. Before she knew it, she was producing a show.“Once I got involved, I absolutely loved it,” she said.She was a fundraiser for New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch, the Algonquin Arts Theatre in Manasquan and the Axelrod Performing Arts Center in Deal before coming to Monmouth Arts.“I am so proud to be a part of a nonprofit that allows our arts community to flourish,” she said. “Through its many programs and services, Monmouth Arts sparks cultural growth as well as provides much-needed funds to arts organizations to create a thriving cultural environment.”Monmouth Arts’ programs are made possible through funding from the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Monmouth County Historical Commission and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/ Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment of the Arts. With an annual budget of $500,000 and a five-person staff, the organization supports artists and arts groups through a multitude of efforts such as networking events, workshops, art walks, grants and other resources. Some of the professional development opportunities include workshops on strategic planning, using social media and developing an artist statement. The organization also publicizes artist performances and exhibitions in e-blasts, through social media and on the website.Monmouth Arts was founded in 1971 after the Junior League of Monmouth County saw the need for a central agency to coordinate and assist all county artists and arts organizations. It began with seed money from the Junior League and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. In 1973, an anonymous donor provided funds to purchase Walter Reade’s Carlton Theatre in Red Bank, later renamed the Count Basie Theatre in honor of Red Bank native William James “Count” Basie. Although they are both still located at the same Monmouth Street address, the two non- profits separated in 1999 so that each could better focus on its individual mission. “People should stop by to find out all we do,” said Staub.The Monmouth Arts community is made up of 75 nonprofit arts groups, 1,400 artists and 3,080 creative businesses such as art galleries, theater groups, bookstores, music and arts academies, dance schools, design, advertising, architecture and publishing businesses. It also has many individual arts supporters.“I always look at Monmouth Arts as the group behind the curtain,” said Staub.The Monmouth Teen Arts Festival, which takes place every March at Brookdale Community College, is one of its biggest events, attracting 2,000 middle and high school students each year. Sneak Peek Film and Reception events are held in conjunction with Bow Tie Cinemas, Sony Pictures Classics and area restaurants. The next one will take place on June 15 at Front Street Trattoria, followed by a screening of “Maudie” at Bow Tie Cinemas.The 2017 Monmouth County Senior Art Show will run from Aug. 4-30 at the Monmouth County Library headquarters in Manalapan, with a special reception on Aug. 16. First place winners in both professional and non-professional levels across 11 categories will advance to the state competition.“I think people would be surprised to see all we offer the community,” said Staub.

How Alex Ferguson snatched Roy Keane out of Blackburn’s hands

Posted on by

first_img Read more United had just won their first title for 26 years but even they could not match the financial power of Blackburn, who had Jack Walker’s money to burn. They had beaten United to Alan Shearer a year earlier, and looked set to do so again when Keane announced he would leave Nottingham Forest after their relegation.The Blackburn manager, Kenny Dalglish, met Keane at the end of the season. At that stage Keane did not even have an agent and was instead accompanied by the PFA’s Brendon Batson. He liked Dalglish – “his obvious intelligence and cool persona impressed me” – and though he asked for £500,000 a year, the same as Shearer, he eventually accepted £400,000. Those few hours of bargaining were crucial: when Dalglish phoned Ewood Park to see if somebody could prepare the contract, everyone had gone home or to the pub. He shook hands on the deal with Keane and said they could sort the contract on Monday.If Blackburn had not quibbled over £100,000 a year, their equivalent of four pence down the back of the sofa, or if somebody had stayed behind until they had a clear in-tray, Keane would have signed there and then. Instead he went back to the family home in Cork the following day and celebrated as approximately 100% of 21‑year‑olds would in such circumstances. He awoke on the Sunday morning with an intrusive hangover, his mouth tasting of beer and kebabs, when his older brother Pat told him Ferguson was on the phone.Ferguson tracked Keane down after reading about his talks with Blackburn in the tabloids. While some papers thought he had other targets – a couple said Carlton Palmer was his first choice – Ferguson and his staff had decided Keane was the only player they wanted to add to the title-winning squad. The United manager had been obsessed with Keane since September 1990, when he dominated in Forest’s 1-0 win at Old Trafford. Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Historic moments usually have an epic quality. But sometimes all it takes to change the world is for a few office staff to get that Friday feeling. Exactly 25 years ago – in the summer of 1993 – the world of football changed for ever because the admin team at Ewood Park clocked off on time. If somebody had stayed late in the office, Roy Keane would have become a Blackburn Rovers player. Instead, Alex Ferguson was given the chance to oversee one of his most important injury-time winners. Reuse this content Alan Shearer Share on Pinterest ‘It used to be about Man United-ness’: how ICC changed the pre-season friendly Except that is precisely what he had done to Dalglish, who reacted with volcanic fury when Keane phoned him. “Nobody does this to Kenny Dalglish,” he said. “You’re a wee bastard and you won’t get away with this.” Keane felt uneasy breaking his word but rationalised it with the knowledge that there was no honour of football. Most people realise that towards at the end of their careers; Keane was 21.Dalglish even threatened to hunt Keane down in Ayia Napa, where he was going with three friends for a lads’ holiday. “I had a fabulous time,” he said later. “No one in Cyprus knew or cared who we were or who we thought we were. Happy, innocent days.”In a sense they were the last innocent days, because Keane’s life changed when he became a Manchester United player. For his first season he was desperately insecure about his technical ability. A drunken chat with Bryan Robson, who encouraged him to trust his passing range, was the start of his development from a box‑to‑box hurricane to holding midfielder with a seriously underrated passing ability.Given his ability and influence, as a demander of the highest standards, it is natural to wonder how different English football might have been had both he and peak Shearer been at the same club. Instead he became the most irreplaceable player in the greatest Manchester United team of all – and a reminder that, even in multimillion‑pound industries, the strangest details can change the world. Read more Share via Email Roy Keane England’s dream over but on ITV Roy Keane’s fun was just beginningcenter_img Ferguson says his apparently laissez-faire attitude was simply because he had promised Forest’s new manager, Frank Clark, that he would wait for official permission to speak to Keane. When he did get hold of the player, Ferguson asked whether anything had been signed with Blackburn. A hungover Keane, his United-loving family all gawping excitedly at him, mumbled that he hadn’t, so Ferguson casually suggested they meet for a chat. “From that moment,” said Keane in his first autobiography, “I was never going to sign for any other club.”The following day, Ferguson picked Keane up at Manchester airport and went back to his house for a game of snooker. “I liked him straight away,” Keane said. “He was unaffected, funny and reassuringly human. He was also clearly hungry for more trophies.” And new ones. Ferguson matter-of-factly told Keane that, with or without him, United were going to dominate English football but that with Keane they could also win the European Cup. “He was,” remembers Keane, “pushing at an open door.” Whether it was a neat sales pitch or something more meaningful, Ferguson’s comment was eerily prescient: six years later, Keane drove United to the Treble and got to them to the European Cup final with that astonishing performance against Juventus.Keane earned 25% less at United than he would have done at Blackburn. They were also offering Forest more money, which meant United had to wait another six weeks to complete the transfer. Ferguson told Keane that, if both parties held their nerve, the move would eventually happen. With that, both men went off on their summer holidays. Ferguson had lost players before while on his summer break, most notably Paul Gascoigne, but he was relaxed about Keane. “When he looked me in the eye, I knew I was talking to a footballer who would not break his word.” Topics Manchester United Read more Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Blackburn Rovers Alex Ferguson features The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email.

CAF Improves Clearance of Goods

Posted on by

first_imgCommissioner of Customs, Major Richard Reece, says the clearance of goods has been significantly improved, since implementation of the Customs Administration Fee (CAF) on April 1. Responding to questions on the issue on Wednesday, May 15, at the weekly Jamaica House press briefing, Major Reece said a joint release will be issued on Thursday, May 16, based on dialogue with brokers associations, and Fiscal Services, regarding challenges with the information systems. “We still have challenges with enclosures, which relates to part shipments…We expect that to be rectified shortly, but we have administrative systems in place to address that,” he told journalists. Commissioner Reece noted that since the CAF took effect, the discussions with a number of sectors; the decision to reduce rates on raw materials for manufacturers; and the adjustment in fees for June 1, had resulted in further changes to Customs’ information system modules. This, he said, had impacted the time frame for smoothing out the kinks in the system. “We expect that by the end of the month (May), those issues will be resolved,” he said. In February, Finance and Planning Minister, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips, announced the application of a Customs Administration Fee on all imports, except for charitable organisations and the bauxite sector. The levy is expected to yield $1.2 billion in revenue.Contact: Alphea Saunderslast_img read more
