Mobile phones and WiFi radiation health risks

There have been many skeptics since the very initial introduction of wireless service about what the constant exposure to radiation can do to human health and the nature surrounding it.

While the world is bracing for the launch of 5G services the question of the health risks looms large.

The result of the extensive study that was conducted by the National Institutes of Health, US was inconclusive. The 10 year study was conducted using 2G and 3G wireless radiation exposure on animals for 9 hours each day. While it did show the increased risk of mutation leading to the growth of tumors or tissue and DNA damage in a group of rodents, another group did not show any evident health issues related to the exposure.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has cited exposure to radiation as a potent carcinogen for humans. It means that long term exposure to radiations could result in extensive damage.

But here is something to think about. The studies were conducted on animals that were expo…

The Story of Mike the Malicious Employee

This is a story of Mike, an aspiring database analyst who lost his way somewhere along his journey. It all started when Mike went to college, hoping to one day become an aspiring database analyst. Accordingly, after four grueling years spent in college, mike finally graduated from college with his degree in computer science. After applying for a job at a few places, he manages to secure a position at a top management consultancy firm. He had finally completed one milestone in his life - earning his college degree - now he'll be undertaking another key step in his life, becoming a key a full blown data analyst professional.

Accordingly, few months after starting his new job, he managed to exceed his key performance indicators by over one hundred percent. His boss was certainly impressed by his efforts and routinely offered him verbal praises, but never gave him a performance bonus. Nonetheless, Mike continued his efforts and quickly became a top performing employee amongst his peers. Few months later, a new position became vacant for assistant manager data analyst, and everyone believed that Mike would be picked for this position. However, the bosses had something else in mind, instead the boss hired his nephew who had just come out of college and had no experience in this field. It seemed like mike would be reporting to an untrained, unqualified manager. This act infuriated Mike and he decided to take decisive action against this injustice.

Of course, he tried pleading with the upper management but they did not heed to his justification. However, he had the perfect opportunity to get back at his employer for the injustice they had committed. Since he had access to confidential company information, such as HR records, marketing analytics, financial spreadsheets and other secretive data files, he decided to share these details with a competitor who would use this information to their own financial advantage. When he approached his employer's competitors with this proposal, they were thrilled, and offered him a top position of Head of Database analysis, along with a house, car and hefty yearly bonuses. It was a done deal for Mike and he compiled, he simply transferred all that data to a USB device and took off.

He then handed over this confidential data to his new employer who was more than happy to take it from him. Surely enough, within a few months, his new employer put the stolen data to good use and were able to Increase their company revenue by 150 percent.

What have we learned from the story, the moral of this story is that you make have a Mike or two working at your company, don't wait around for data leaks to occur, prevent them with data leak protection software. However, not any data leak prevention software will do, one of the most trusted and effective data leak prevention software is USB Block which prevent leaks of sensitive data, be it in a corporate environment or a small office setting.

The Dramatic Downside of Home Decor Ideas in Movies

Movie sets make all kinds of fantastic home d�cor ideas seem possible, but many of these ideas would have major downsides in real life.

Willy Wonka's Chocolate FactoryThe chocolate factory is a big inspiration to kids everywhere. The pre-teen audience salivates at the sight of the chocolate river, teacup flowers, and trees with balloon-like candy fruit. Who wouldn't want a gigantic room where everything is edible? A reasonable adult with foresight-that's who wouldn't want the biohazard of such a playspace. First, there's the impossible task of fending off insects and replacing expired candy trees. Secondly, inviting any guests to enjoy would be as biologically risky as sharing a lollipop with a group of friends. The only adult who would be interested in a room or house of candy is the witch in Hansel and Gretel.

Texas Chainsaw MassacreThe murderous family in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie isn't portrayed in a very favourable light. "Stand your gr…

Bad Service Can Ruin Your Restaurant's Reputation

During the holidays I enjoyed the time off with some surf, sea and sand. As like most people on holiday, I love spending time with special people at wonderful restaurants. Most of the restaurants I went to knew what they were doing and their waitrons were on the ball. I commend such good customer service. However, there was this one restaurant that I went to that did not offer such a good customer experience. Bad service can give a restaurant a bad name.

Let me share my experience with you.
My companions and I decided to have breakfast at the beach. This particular restaurant is ideally situated on the beach, just a few metres from the sea so you can imagine the beautiful view we were looking forward to. While waiting in the queue to be seated, we were promptly informed that we needed to wait a bit. Once we were seated it took quite some time for our waitron to welcome us and provide us with the menus. When she did show up she advised that the restaurant is very busy and breakfast will …

How Social Media Shapes Our Identity

The Internet constantly confronts us with evidence of our past. Are we losing the chance to remake ourselves?

By Nausicaa Renner

In “The End of Forgetting: Growing Up with Social Media,” Kate Eichhorn worries that coming of age online might impede our ability to edit memories, cull what needs to be culled, and move on.Illustration by Tallulah FontaineLast year, I had a strange dream. My father and I were wading in an industrial canal, reminiscent of a subway, as thousands of hatchery-raised fish were being released into it. The fish crowded, slimy, around our legs, and I knew (in the way that one knows in a dream) that they thought, as they hit the water, that they were drowning—that they had to experience death before entering adulthood. The next day, I told my father about the dream. He revealed that, when I was three, when we were living in Pittsburgh, he took me to see a truckful of catfish being pumped into an artificial pond. I was too young to remember this. But somewhere in my m…
