Score: 5/5 Untangle NG Firewall The Debian-based distro is very easy to set up and is the only distro in this roundup which restarts after install into a web-based setup wizard. Youre asked to set the password for the admin user, then point to and configure the two networks cards one that connects to the internet and the other the local network. When setup is complete, Untangle prompts you to create a free account in order to configure the server. Youll then have to install applications, such as the firewall, to infuse that functionality into the server. Almost all the applications are preconfigured and run automatically after install. You can also configure each application by clicking the Settings button under it. Untangles dashboard also enables you to analyse the traffic passing through the server, and each application will show statistics for its own traffic as well.

To track the bees' behavior, the team superglued tiny RFID tags to the backs of the bees. Each tag weighs only 2 to 3 percent of the bee's weight. A Y-tube connects the hive to two arenas, one that offers pollen and one that offers nectar. When a bee leaves the hive to forage, it can choose to go to the pollen chamber or the nectar chamber. Two RFID readers mounted at the entrance keep track of the bees going in and out and help the researchers collect a wealth of data. This setup gives us information about directionality, Russell explains. Is the forager leaving or returning from foraging? We also get an idea of whether a bee goes from one chamber to the other, or whether it makes repeated trips to only one chamber, and we get to know how long the trips were. Cheap tags add paper to the Internet of Things Since the team was especially interested in the sequence of the foraging trips over the course of the day, some heavy lifting was needed to make sense of all the data, so Russell enlisted the help of Sarah Morrison, a doctoral student in the UA's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, who studies orbital dynamics and the evolution of solar systems.

It will protect your connection every time you connect - including on public and unsecured Wi-Fi networks. As mentioned above, using a VPN is especially important, due to the automatic nature of public Wi-Fi. Often, these networks connect to your device automatically, meaning you could be putting your privacy at risk without even knowing it! VyprVPN's Connect on Untrusted Wi-Fi feature automatically connects the VPN anytime you are on an untrusted network, ensuring you stay secure and protected...without having to think about it! VyprVPN's Kill Switch feature is also helpful in preventing against threats on Wi-Fi. Kill Switch automatically kills, or disconnects, your Internet connection whenever you are not connected to VyprVPN, ensuring you are not at risk without being aware. It's nearly impossible to avoid using Wi-Fi networks (not to mention inconvenient), so the best solution is to use a VPN.

(Photo by Reuters) Davis also said that Daesh now controls only one road that connects Raqqah to the city of Dayr al-Zawr and lies along the north bank of the Euphrates River. Daesh after flooding areas in eastern Aleppo Separately on Friday, Aleppo Governor Hussein Diab warned that Daesh had pumped large amounts of Euphrateswater and was seeking to flood areas in eastern Aleppo, Syria’s official SANA news agency reported. He said all public construction companies and concerned bodies were on alert to do everything necessary to mitigate possible damage from the Daesh sabotage. Last December, the Syrian army managed to wrest full control over Aleppo, which had long been divided between government forces in the west and the militants in the east.

"Our goal is a health companion and we call it the cognitive hypervisor," said Michel. "We want to enable patients to leave the hospital sooner, so they can recover from the comfort of their own home, while still receiving care remotely from trained medical staff." The hub connects to the IBM Cloud where it is able to access Watson APIs, such as speech to text, allowing for further applications of remote care. This is particularly useful for elderly patients at home, as they will be able call for an ambulance, receive reminders to take pills, and ask basic questions like: "Can I take paracetamol with my medication?" The recognition API is also able to monitor the speech patterns of patients suffering from Alzheimer's, dementia, and Parkinson's diseases, alerting doctors of advanced symptoms based on audible changes. Michel foresees wider applications of the technology, including within the workplace where it may be able to help with the reduction of stress.

Anyone who's traveled to, from or through New York's LaGuardia Airport (LGA) since August knows about the threat of intense gridlock traffic . While the problem started last summer, the issue recently resurfaced when people were seen walking down the Grand Central Parkway, weaving through stopped cars just to catch their flights. With more than 300,000 travelers expected to travel through LGA this President's Day weekend, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is implementing plans to help the city avoid another gridlock disaster. Here's what's being planned: Free Q70 select bus service from now through next Tuesday, February 21. The Q70 connects LGA to the NYC subway network in Jackson Heights (E, F, M, R and 7 lines) and Woodside (7 line and connections to the Long Island Rail Road). Discounted parking in the long-term lot, where now through May 31, 2017, it'll cost $18 per day instead of the usual $39 per day.
