Also Read: http://blogrr.net/ tag/abney+associat es/ She said the next sound was the click of the caller hanging up. Unlike Sedergren, however, many Vermonters, especially seniors, fall prey to lottery and other scams, and wind up losing hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

It’s the reason why AARP is holding forums around the state to educate Vermonters on how to prevent being a scam victim. The state’s list of scams closely tracks the Federal Trade Commission’s nationwide list, which has exploded in recent years.

Robots

Abney and Associates: In 1949, He Imagined an Age of Robots

innovative boiler technologies articles It was a vision that never saw the light of day. The year was 1949, and computers and robots were still largely the stuff of science fiction. Only a few farsighted thinkers imagined that they would one day become central to civilization, with consequences both liberating and potentially dire. One of those visionaries was Norbert Wiener (1894-1964), an American mathematician at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1948 he had published “Cybernetics,” a landmark theoretical work that both foreshadowed and influenced the arrival of computing, robotics and automation. Two years later, he wrote “The Human Use of Human Beings,” a popularization of those ideas and an exploration of the potential of automation and the risks of dehumanization by machines. In 1949, The New York Times invited Wiener to summarize his views about “what the ultimate machine age is likely to be,” in the words of its longtime Sunday editor, Lester Markel. Wiener accepted the invitation and wrote a draft of the article; the legendarily autocratic Markel was dissatisfied and asked him to rewrite it. He did. But through a distinctly pre-Internet series of fumbles and missed opportunities, neither version ever appeared. In August, according to Wiener’s papers, which are on file at the M.I.T. Libraries, The Times asked him to resend the first draft of the article so it could be combined with the second draft. (It is not clear why the editors failed to keep a copy of the first draft.) “Could you send the first draft to me, and we’ll see whether we can combine the two into one story?” wrote an editor in the paper’s Sunday department, then separate from the daily paper. “I may be mistaken, but I think you lost some of your best material.” Source:http://www. nytimes.com/2013/0 5/21/science/mit-s cholars-1949-essay -on-machine-age-is -found.html?pagewa nted=all&_r=1 & But by then Wiener was traveling in Mexico, and he responded: “I had assumed that the first version of my article was finished business. To get hold of the paper in my office at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology would involve considerable cross-corresponden ce and annoyance to several people. “I therefore do not consider it a practical thing to do. Under the circumstances I think that it is best for me to abandon this undertaking.” Consider the Abacus By this time the public is well aware that a new age of machines is upon us based on the computing machine, and not on the power machine. The tendency of these new machines is to replace human judgment on all levels but a fairly high one, rather than to replace human energy and power by machine energy and power. It is already clear that this new replacement will have a profound influence upon our lives, but it is not clear to the man of the street what this influence will be. ...

Related Article: http://haideeloidi e.blogrr.net/ The limitations of such a machine are simply those of an understanding of the objects to be attained, and of the potentialities of each stage of the processes by which they are to be attained, and of our power to make logically determinate combinations of those processes to achieve our ends. Roughly speaking, if we can do anything in a clear and intelligible way, we can do it by machine. The Genie and the Bottle Finally the machines will do what we ask them to do and not what we ought to ask them to do. In the discussion of the relation between man and powerful agencies controlled by man, the gnomic wisdom of the folk tales has a value far beyond the books of our sociologists. innovative boiler technologies articles See More: http://nicoleturpi n2012.wordpress.co m/  (May 20, 2013 | post #1)

Er din WordPress nettstedet sikkert?

http://www.afr.com /p/technology/is_y our_wordpress_webs ite_secure_EJlLnmE jW0zTgJsRsqGE8O Er din WordPress nettstedet sikkert?, internet security abney and associates reviews Om lag 10 prosent av alle nettsteder er bygget på fleksibel WordPress-plattfor men, og så mange som en fjerdedel av alle nylig lanserte nettsteder er drevet av det. Det betyr at ca 1 million områder per måned legges til WordPress.com's nåværende oversikt over 65 millioner. Så når WordPress er under beleiring av hackere, er selve weben under angrep. Og WordPress er for tiden kjempe slaget av sitt liv. Kalt den "globale WordPress brute force flommen", er ideen enkel selv om utførelsen er komplekse. Som de fleste datasystemer inkluderer WordPress en administratorkonto med privilegier og makt over nettstedet. Hvis en forbryteren kan få tilgang til denne kontoen, er området på nåde deres. Flommen består hovedsakelig av en systematisk innsats for å gjette administrator brukernavn og passord av så mange steder som mulig. Angrepet viser en grunn til hvorfor en kompromitterte maskinen er så ille. Det blir utført gjennom enorme nettverk av servere som allerede har blitt misligholdt, og er nå ansatt i ytterligere ugagn. Hundrevis av tusenvis-kanskje millioner-maskiner som er eid av lovlydige mennesker har blitt utnyttet til robotic nettverk, såkalte botnet, som nådeløst prøver å logge inn på andre nettsteder ved hjelp av legitimasjonen som er og gjette. Utrolig, noen mennesker fremdeles velge et passord "passord ". Angrepet går gjennom en rekke vanlige navnene for administratorkonto en, kombinert med en liste over hyppig anvendt passord. Deri ligger den viktigste tingen noen WordPress administrator bør gjøre umiddelbart: å sikre at det er ingen administrasjon konto kalt "admin" ","admin istrator"elle r noe lignende, eller bruker et passord som er lett å gjette. Flommen forteller oss hvilke svake passord brukes oftest, fordi WordPress logger registrerer informasjon om forsøk på tilgang. Så vi vet at den som er bak svindelen er å treffe lønn smuss med passord som "admin", "admin123 ", "123456" , "qwerty" , og, selvfølgelig, passord.  (Apr 23, 2013 | post #1)

Spain's "bad bank" rebuffs three investment funds

http://www.reuters .com/article/2013/ 02/09/us-spain-bad -bank-idUSBRE91808 G20130209 an abney associates blog (Reuters) - Spain's so-called 'bad bank', Sareb, has rejected overtures from investment funds Cerebrus, Fortress and Centerbridge to enter into its capital because they were asking for advantages over other shareholders, a source with knowledge of the matter said on Saturday. "They asked for privileges when it came to buying the assets, and Sareb rejected that offer," the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity said. "Sareb has a commitment to treat all shareholders the same." Sareb declined to comment. None of the three funds could be reached for comment and neither the Bank of Spain nor the Economy Minister could confirm the matter. Spain set up the bad bank to hive off rotten real estate assets dating from a property crash from lenders' balance sheets as a condition of receiving around 40 billion euros ($54 billion) of European money to bail out ailing banks. The head of Sareb, Belen Romana, sent a letter to the three funds on Friday declining their entry into the bad bank's capital, but leaving the door open for further talks, Expansion newspaper reported on Saturday. The funds wanted first choice on buying portfolios of finished buildings and on supplying services to the bad bank, the paper said. Sareb took on 37 billion euros worth of troubled real estate assets at the end of December from four nationalized banks, including Bankia (BKIA.MC) an abney associates blog  (Feb 10, 2013 | post #1)
