Should I be skeptical of Wall Street Journal offering Cybersecurity training?

I’ve been getting advertisements from the Wall Street Journal Pro Cybersecurity.

I find this whole situation very bizarre, as I only know them as a business-focused newspaper. It seems they are releasing not only Cybersecurity news, but also Cybersecurity training?

Our news, commentary and training is designed to give senior executives the non-technical news and analysis they need

Apparently their training is:

Designed to help executives ensure that their businesses respond to cyber-attacks in a decisive and coordinated way, these tabletop exercises will allow you to identify gaps in your response plans and navigate challenges arising from security compromises.

Training packs are available for the following scenarios:

  • Leaking Documents
  • Ransomware
  • Historic Attacks
  • Denial of Service

I must admit, the website does have a very “premium” look and color to it.

But my question is; is it common for news outlets to offer cybersecurity training? Is there any benefit choosing WSJ over a normal cybersecurity firm? (Is this a late April fools joke?)

22 DoFollow Social Media Sites Offering Profile Links for $54

In last week’s post I talk about 4 alternative uses of social media. Point #2 I mentioned in that piece talked about “generating direct backlinks”, though I wasn’t able to elaborate as much as I would have liked to. Obviously there are many ways to get links from social media. One such technique is to establish profiles on various social media, and link from your profile on those sites, back to your web site. The key obviously is in knowing which social media sites permit links, and which permit DoFollow links. To save you some time, here are a list of 22 such sites that we’re aware of: 1. Digg 2. Propeller 3. Flickr 4. Kirtsy 5. LinkedIn 6. Current 7. PostonFire 8. BloggingZoom 9. CoRank 10. Technorati 11. MyBlogLog 12. Bumpzee 13. LinkaGoGo 14. Bibsonomy 15. Mister-Wong 16. MyLinkVault 17. ClipClip 18. 9Rules 19. AssociatedContent 20. Blogoria 21. NowPublic 22. MemeStreams Edit: June 12, 2008: 23. Mixx … thanks to Matt Mcgee (Small Business SEM) 24. Edopter … thanks to Andy Murdoch ( I intend to keep updating this list over time so bookmark it now. Also, if you’re aware of any such social media site, please leave a comment and let us know. We’ll add it to the comprehensive list, and will link back to each person’s site doing so. Enjoy … and happy link building!

Player offering other characters advice during combat [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • How do I deal with a powergamer in a game full of beginners in a school club? 6 answers
  • How to stop one player taking control of the game? 11 answers
  • How should I deal with a player telling other players when and what to roll? 12 answers

How do you keep the one very experienced player from offering advice during encounters, combat, etc.? Hes a great player, knows his stuff extremely well, but can’t seem to keep his mouth shut, even when his character is not present for meetings, combat, etc. I have found giving him gummy bears works to keep his mouth occupied, but would like other options.

Offering a compressed file for download that’s around 1.2 GB, should we split it into smaller parts?

The file contains thousands of PDFs and will be posted on a government website. The primary audience is researchers and the media, desktop, not mobile. We plan to indicate the filesize. Given 1.2 gb is pretty big, are there any reasons we should split the file into smaller parts? Asking because I’m just not sure.

How can I know (without going to the station) if RTAP is offering the Anti Pollution tickets?

The Paris public transit system (RTAP) offers a reduced fare on days of high pollution, as described here: (Google Translated).

This fare is a very good deal, especially as a tourist!

It has been offered so far every day that I have been visiting, but I only know that because I have been to the train station and seen it advertised. Is there a website where I can look to see whether a particular day is an anti pollution day?

Why does Firefox keep offering “unreputable” add-ons and add-ons that they don’t even review?

When I install an add-on to Firefox, choosing it from the ones I find by using the Tools / Add-ons menu, sometimes after a few days Avast pops up a warning that the add-on is “unreputable” and strongly recommends and offers to remove it.

Of course malicious add-ons could potentially steal my passwords, intercept anything I type in that browser and do horrible things in general, so when I see such warnings I don’t think twice and I just remove the add-on, but it’s becoming too frequent and annoying, and it surprises me a lot that apparently Avast knows so much better than Mozilla about unreputable Firefox add-ons.

If Avast discovers malice in an add-on and lets the world know and even offers to remove it, why at the same time Mozilla happily keeps offering the add-on for long time? I had some that Avast recommended me to remove many months ago and are still offered in FF. Mozilla might even offer add-ons that were never checked at all, see this answer, but how is that possible if add-ons are potentially so dangerous? I’m also curious about how common successful attacks via FF add-ons are.

Also because if it’s so common that FF add-ons that keep being offered in FF are unreputable, I would have a good deal of worrying to do for the past, because I kept “unreputable” add-ons installed for a while before Avast found them.

Flight search engine offering results ordered by distance flown

Put simply: I’d like to fly more, I’d like to be more in the air than on the ground.

I have asked similar questions before, and yes, they sound weird, but please hear me out.

Ref: Flight search for 3+/4+ stops

I know that actual distance flown differs from flight to flight depending on weather(winds,rain,snow), airline (fuel/cost decisions) and aircraft,

Is there a flight search engine that displays tentative/approximate total distance flown? Also, i’m looking such a search engine that allows filtering by distance such as total > 10000 miles. Obviously, i expect such a system to allow sorting too.

On the other hand, this can be seen as a person trying to reduce distance flown or Co2 emission etc.

I really hope one such thing exists, please help me find it. For example, Tokyo to Mumbai: Direct Flight : NH829, 4200 miles or 6700 km via Hong Kong Flight : 2800 km + 4300 km = 7100 km via Singapore Flight : 5300 km + 3900 km = 9200 km via Bangkok Flight : 4600 km + 3000 km = 7600 km
