Remaining Confident is Key To Building a Successful Business

According to an article in entrepreneur magazine, a lack of confidence in your business is oftentimes the main cause of the failure to succeed. So many companies out there fail to succeed, through no fault of their own, simply because they don’t have enough faith in the idea.

Take for example, thinking that the content you’re producing on website isn’t good enough. Modern social media experts like Laurene Powell Jobs would tell you that it’s usually not about content, but how you’re putting that content out.

Sometimes you need to control the flow of content more intelligently. Meaning, sending out emails at the right time. Being willing to change things up to see if you can reach more people.

You should be exploring new ways to post on sites like Facebook and Twitter. Post multiple times per day, see what gets the most traffic or responses, and learn from that information.

9 Men Arrested in the UK on Suspicion of Terrorism

Whenever a terrorist cell slips between the cracks in a major nation like the United Kingdom, we all get a little worried.  That’s what happened today, when police arrested radical preacher Anjem Choudary, and 8 other men on suspicion of terrorism.

Homes, and businesses throughout London are being searched in connection with the men.  But right now, the Scotland Yard reports that there is no immediate threat to public safety.

A Muslim activist, Abu Izzadeen was also a part of the arrests.

The investigation began after a series of tweets were posted by Choundary, with an anti-western tone.  The preacher referred to ongoing events involving ISIS, as well as Syria.  All 9 men are suspected to be involved with an organization promoting terrorism.

 

Something Worse Than Heartbleed Could Be On The Horizon

I’m sure we all remember how scary Heartbleed was, when the security exploit was revealed.  Well, there’s something even worse on the horizon, and it’s called Bash.

Bash is a security flaw that could open up access to a user’s personal data, a small computer network’s server access, and could even open up access to internet connected cameras and microphones.  This exploit allows for malicious code execution through the bash shell, and can literally allow someone to take over an operating system.

The Operating Systems most likely to be affected by Bash include Unix, Linux as well as hardware running Max OS x.

While most major systems are in the process of being patched, like most services on major web servers, it’s uncertain how far reaching this security exploit could become.  Despite most major networks patching Heartbleed, there are still thousands of PCs and networks at risk.
