  • The SONY Hack - Release 'The Interview' into the Wild

    17 Dec 2014 | 2:01 pm
    The most recent hack of Sony is not about salacious gossip, who holds the power in movietown, or who has poor taste in "jokes." To poorly paraphrase John Donne, it is not about asking for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for IT. While the challenge for IT security is daunting, in every aspect of business - since the first transaction was made thousands of years ago - the ability to securely make subsequent transactions has always been a business' prime objective.  Sony has been keenly aware of its position as a target, and if reports are true, disregarded the most basic security steps…
  • CNN and #ASKACOP - A Calculated Fail

    17 Dec 2014 | 12:50 pm
    CNN and Don Lemon solicited questions through the hashtag #AskACop during a Tuesday evening CNN town hall meeting “Under Fire.” It created a hashtag firestorm, and backfired with scathing, scorching responses against police officers almost immediately. The idea that this may have been done to promote meaningful dialogue is laughable.  It was purposely provocative and follows on the heels of significant unrest regarding police actions in Ferguson and New York City, not to mention NY's own failed attempt at leveraging Twitter last year with the CNN covered story of #MyNYPD.

    Dr. Don Donahue comments on a recent study citing that more than 40 percent of a sample of U.S. adults believe the myth that flu vaccines can give you the flu, and even correcting that misconception might not convince them to get the vaccine. The power of mass media and social networking to shape preconceived notions is demonstrated daily.  The comments that follow contentious items in Facebook, Huffington Post, and even traditional forums such as the Washington Post and New York Times often tell more about the authors’ beliefs than any broader truths. So too, are modern…

      People fear earthquakes because they threaten our lives. Of all natural disasters, earthquakes have caused the greatest amount of fatalities in the world: 86,000 people died in the 2005 Pakistan 7.6 magnitude earthquake; 88,000 people died in the 2008 China 7.9 magnitude earthquake; and the more than 200,000 people died in the 2010 Haiti 7.0 earthquake (EERI, 2006; USGS, 2014c; USGS, 2011). According to Swiss Re, one of the world’s largest reinsurance companies, Los Angeles faces one of the greatest risks of catastrophic loss from earthquakes of any city in the world, eclipsed only…
