Security threats are some of the leading concerns our customers have with technology today and that’s why we’ve built Windows 10 to be the most secure version of Windows ever. With comprehensive, built-in security features, Windows 10 provides protection from viruses and malware threats including ransomware, safer authentication with Windows Hello using your smile or fingerprint to login and ongoing security updates delivered monthly through Windows Update, to name a few. But you dont need to be a security expert to help secure your device and understand the protections you have in place. In the Windows 10 Creators Update, we will introduce a new experience called the Windows Defender Security Center to make it is easier for you to view and control the security protections you choose and better understand the security features already protecting you on your Windows 10 device.

What was your most embarrassing office etiquette moment? For me, it was when I started to watch a hilarious video of a sheep screaming like a human and quickly realized my headphones werent plugged in. I frantically scrambled for the mute button on my keyboard while my distracted coworkers laughed at my mishap. Sound familiar? Since then, I don't watch videos at work unless they dont require sound. Video content is in high demand from your audience, and many viewers prefer watching videos that dont require sound. In fact, 85% of videos on Facebook are watched without sound. Videos on Facebook autoplay without sound until users click to turn up volume, and Instagram videos only autoplay with sound if the phone’s ringer is turned on. Users are telling platforms their video streaming preferences, and they’re responding with features that make it easier to consume silently.

Until the industrial revolution, humans made use of animals to make our labor easier. This is still seen in some niche areas, like how no machine yet has been invented that's as good at sniffing out truffles as pigs are. [William] has hearkened back to humanity's earlier roots, but in a more modern twist has made something of a general purpose dog that could feasibly do any work imaginable. Now his dog is remote-controlled . [William] accomplished the monumental task in a literally cartoonish fashion using the old trope of hanging a hot dog in front of something's face to get them to chase it. The attachment point was fitted with a remote control receiver and an actuator to get the hanging hot dog to dangle a little bit more to the dog's right or left, depending on where the operator wants the dog to go. [William]'s bulldog seems to be a pretty good sport about everything and isn't any worse for wear either.

KLINKNER: If you're going to tell a lie about somebody, it works a lot better if you focus on somebody who is different from you. They have a different skin color, they attend a different church or house of worship. They come from a different country or speak a different language. It's harder to sort of see them a common citizen. Easier to see them as somebody who's different and therefore dangerous to you and to your country. PAINTER: I would not say white supremacy is a big foundational lie. I would say white supremacy is a big foundational fact. Because during our colonial period in the United States, they laid the ground work for a society that's divided along racial lines. So in 1964, when Barry Goldwater ran on not approving the Civil Rights Act, he had a large following. It was not a winning following; it was not a winning strategy in 1964.

However, the AHA responded explaining that there wasn't enough evidence. Despite these deaths, the AHA awarded The Hobbit with the carefully crafted claim, monitored all of the significant animal action. No animals were harmed during such action. Other reported animal cruelty and fatalities during filming include Disney’s 2006 film Eight Below , the 2006 comedy Failure to Launch , the 2011 comedy Zookeeper, and the classic adventure Pirates of the Caribbean in 2003. So, during the ending credits, if you see the claim, No animals were harmed during the making of this film, perhaps you shouldn't believe it. How Can I Only Support Movies That Are Cruelty-Free? Well, this is certainly easier said than done. It's clear that the only real enforcer of animal rights in the film industry, the AHA, cannot be fully trusted to do their job.

Remember, it isnt just about dumbing us down. The ruling elite also want a significant global depopulation to make their tyrannical rule easier. Consider toxic junk food. This is essentially processed food chemical laden, high in sugar and salt content, nasty trans-fats, overcooked and irradiated, deficient in vitamin, enzyme and mineral content. –All of which if consumed frequent and long-term contributes to the acid body leading to illness. GMO’s and their toxic genes have also contributed to illness. The solution, to prevent and reverse illness, is to alkalize the body by eating natural immune system building alkaline foods and drinking plenty of good clean water. Eat organic food, as this is free from GMO's and agricultural chemicals. Learn to discern the deceptive marketing where you could be fooled into buying products that are not organic or natural.

Update: The official Roku app (which can be used to control the device) has received a pretty substantial overhaul. The biggest addition is a new 'What's on' section, which provides an easy way to view a curated selection of recent television and movie releases. The app has also received a more general design overhaul to make it easier to navigate. Original review below... The Roku 3 has officially made it to the two-year mark as one of the greatest set-top streaming boxes we have ever tested. Some things have changed over the years, but by and large the it's the same kit we came to love 24 months ago. As you might expect, the Roku 3 features a number of welcome refinements over the cheaper Roku 2 and entry-level 720p Roku LT. It offers wired and wireless connectivity and a much faster dual-core Broadcom chipset. In short, it's the best built Roku player seen to date, rivaling set-top mainstay Amazon Fire TV as the king of the proverbial castle.

The biggest addition is a new 'What's on' section, which provides an easy way to view a curated selection of recent television and movie releases. The app has also received a more general design overhaul to make it easier to navigate. Original review below... The original Roku Streaming Stick, the one released back in 2012 before the Chromecast came onto the scene and the Amazon Fire TV Stick had ever been conceived, was a landmark innovation for streaming video players. At $49 (49, about AU$62), the Roku Streaming Stick was cheaper than anything else on the market and smaller by far. It packed all the independent goodness of Roku OS, as well as over 1,000 channels, into something the size of a USB stick. Even after Google and Amazon's smaller streamers came out in the following year, the Roku Streaming Stick still had some features the other two lacked: a sophisticated remote and an app store that didn't care whether you picked Amazon Instant Video over Netflix, or chose rental services, like Vudu and Fandango, over Google Play TV Shows and Movies.

If the hips sag and the lower back starts to arch, you'll likely feel a pinching sensation in the lower back. You should feel this mostly in the front of your body. Don't round the upper back 5. Use a single-leg stance Using a single-leg stance will reduce your base of support and add an anti-rotational component. Make sure the hips point downward throughout the movement. Avoid rotating the hips and keep the back flat. 6. Plank Arm March Here's another anti-rotation variation that's even more challenging than the single-leg planks above. Make sure to keep a flat back and avoid bobbing side to side. You can make this movement harder by bringing the feet closer together, or easier by widening them.

Currently, military-court rulings are not accepted in Israeli civil courts because Israeli law does not apply in the West Bank, where the sovereign is the head of the army's Central Command. The bill’s sponsor, MK Anat Berko (Likud), said the legislation was designed to make it easier for terror victims to sue for compensation in civil proceedings, but opposition MKs say the move is part of the “creeping annexation” being pursued by the right. Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit has criticized the notion of recognizing military-court rulings in Israeli courts, and the Knesset has been warned of possible repercussions abroad if the bill passes.... http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.765361 Gaza Israeli forces detain 5 Gaza fishermen after opening fire on them GAZA (Ma‘an) 16 Jan Israeli naval forces detained five Palestinian fishermen and seized their fishing boats on Monday morning after opening fire on them off the coast of the northern besieged Gaza Strip, according to local officials.

Sure it’s good to talk to your voters, but sometimes it’s just easier to sneak out the back door. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "One day after voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a Republican Congressman in Colorado was caught sneaking out the backdoor of a community meeting on Saturday after being overwhelmed by constituents concerned over the future of their healthcare. U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman had invited Colorado voters to the Aurora Central Library in suburban Denver to meet "one-on-one" with the lawmaker and "discuss the issues that are important to them." However, with the meeting scheduled one day after Coffman voted in favor of a budget resolution that paves the way for ACA repeal and co-authored a Denver Post op-ed defending the move, the congressman was apparently overwhelmed by hundreds of constituents who wanted answers regarding the healthcare cuts.

[1] What, pray tell, is more important to control than the healthcare delivery system of any nation. When you control the healthcare services, you control the health of the citizens. When you control their health, you effectively control them. If you dont believe this, then please read the flowing exposé. Obamacare : The Hidden Agenda With this hidden knowledge it is now much easier to understand why SERCO was the recipient of a literal barrage of bad press right in the thick of the Obamacare rollout debacle. The headlines below are by purposeful design, not because SERCO screwed up. Did SERCO really do the things that have been reported in these articles? Maybe; maybe not. Probably they did, however, just to confer street cred to their reputation of corporate corruption and irresponsibility. Obamacare Serco Scandal Grows: Arkansas office also pays people to do nothing White House Hired Sham Foreign Company for Obamacare, Employees ‘Do NothingSerco’s Checkered History Serco: Obamacare Contractor Exposed Running Fight Club at Prison Obamacare Contractor Under Fire Assume that they really are responsible for these unparalleled fiascos and then you will comprehend the strategy which has been used all along to make the taxpayer think that SERCO is just another greedy, incompetent government contractor.

This is why the viewership of television and newspaper outlets has dropped significantly and is also why people are turning to alternative news websites for the REAL news that the mainstream media FAILS to report. Out of place artifacts There are literally thousands of “out of place artifacts” that show how we have been here MUCH longer than the official story of both evolution and the bible, yet no high school or university will come near to approaching this topic because it would blow the lid off of all religions. For example, in Illinois, a well bit brought up a 200,000 year old bronze coin from a depth of 114 feet just outside Chillicothe, Illinois. According to the Illinois State Geological Survey, the deposits containing the coin are between 200,000 and 400,000 years old. If our true history was revealed, it would cause every system of education to rewrite history and would make the professors teachinghistorylook like idiots, so it’s much easier to suppress the truth than to admit they were wrong while killing religion.

There are few projects on how to make your own cordless drill, but what sets [Johnnyq90's] amazing project apart is the fact that his power plant is a nitro engine. Not an easy task of course, but he makes it look easier than it is, and we really enjoyed the construction process. He uses an RC Kyosho GX12 engine that was previously modified , changing the cooling head with a larger one. The engine drives a gearbox that was taken from another drill. All other parts were hand made. The clutch was carefully machined, and the cooling fan was made in a 3D printer. Other necessary parts were the frame, brass spacers to adjust the engine height and alignment, throttle arm and handle. In the end even the gearbox had to be modified for higher speed. The finished drill sure looks and sounds terrific, and seems to be perfectly capable of doing its job. As with other mechanical projects from [Johnnyq90], the video has good timing and attention to detail.

Even more disturbing, the employees hired for this job are from outsourcing firms and are hired without any security checks. There is also nothing stopping them from downloading and saving any of the content they review. 5. Not So Private After All You may or may not have noticed that Facebook's privacy settings are complex and change frequently. Many believe that this is intentional, making it easier for the company to mine unprotected personal data. Facebook claims that any information it receives is stored in a black box, only used to enhance target advertising and serve more relevant content, yet a 2010 Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that Facebook was actually making the personal data of its users directly available to advertisers. Take a look at this video Anonymous put together of these findings. Conclusion Does this change how you feel about using Facebook? Share your opinion in the comments section below! Much Love

For the past year or so, Carfection has had a BMW X5 xDrive40d as their long-term crew/camera car. It's been the car that brings their entire crew, all of their equipment and luggage to location where they shoot their car films. While it's there, they usually use it as a camera car, with the tailgate open, a man hanging out with a camera and it's usually driving pretty quickly around a racetrack, trying to keep up with the lead car. Then, once, they're all done shooting for the day, everyone packs back up into the X5 and drive home. That's a lot of work for one car, yet the BMW X5 served them brilliantly in ever aspect of its life. Not only was it a useful camera car and crew car but it was able to keep up with the performance cars they were shooting. It was also comfortable and relaxing for the drive home, which makes a day's work a lot easier.

The thought apparently is that fleets of robo-trucks laden with goods or a drone with packages on board are easier pickings for criminals when there's no human in the loop. Really? With humans doing the driving, an estimated $30 billion is lost in the US alone to cargo theft every year. Can robots be much worse? If you dive into the statistics on cargo freight, the first thing you notice is wildly differing tallies for the losses. This appears somewhat due to reporting methodologies when a driver has a gun stuck in his face, it's a strong-arm robbery; when a dock worker takes an envelope of cash to take a long break while a shipment gets loaded into the wrong truck, that's more of a fraud case. And with multiple billions of dollars in sales every year, cargo theft is more of an organized enterprise than an entrepreneurial one think MS-13, the Triad, and La Cosa Nostra.

The pluralised public sphere It should go without saying that no state's approach to religion is perfect, and India faces its own significant problems with diversity and integration, from religious violence to the persistence of the caste system. But that doesn't mean there is nothing for Europe to learn. Put simply, integrating religious differences is easier when religious freedom goes hand-in-hand with an understanding of the nature of religious commitments, and the creation of a pluralised public sphere. Neutrality is insufficient when communities already see religion as an important part of their personal identity, one they want to hold on to along with their civic identity. It should be possible to have both. Current political debates in the West need to open up to solutions that go beyond secularism, from places like India and from elsewhere.
