Have you ever regretted deleting something from your system? Admit it — it’s happened to the best of us, whenever a computer is involved. Be it (accidentally) installing something malicious, negotiating a virus or dealing with good ‘ol wear and tear, we’re always at risk of losing data.
When it comes time for you to take out a private student loan or refinance your old student loans, you want to know that you chose the right and best lender in your area.

The Tomb Raider reboot, at least in my opinion, was one of the more recent successes in injecting a refreshing take on everyone’s favorite heroine. With this second installment, Lara Croft is back – obsessed, bruised and broken as she tries to follow her father’s footsteps for the search for immortality.
We use a lot of things and gadgets in our everyday life and most of them are very habitual. You brush your hair, use plates and forks, wear some kind of clothes, feed your pet – and all of this is a routine which can even sometimes make you feel tired. Some people try to diversify daily living and make their every minute full of impressions. Besides, customary things can also become peculiar and interesting to use. Moreover, one casual gadget can combine a few different functions. Let us see what novelties can make our life more exciting.
The age of Internet brings about a new set of dangers that accompany us in everyday life, and if you want to reap all the benefits provided by high tech without the risk of getting into serious trouble at every turn, you can’t do without some basic knowledge on how to avoid online threats and secure yourself from hostile activities.
With the amount of accounts in different services, websites, banks, shops and such one has to deal with today, it is increasingly tempting to think up just one password for all of them and use it for all registrations. It is hardly a good idea, though. Firstly, passwords used by most people are fairly easy to crack, even by brute force attack. Secondly, if you use the same password to control your bank account and to register on a third-rate forum, you are asking for trouble.
You’re much better off using a password manager or creating your own algorithm of creating passwords for different websites that would be easy to remember.
Use an ID Protection Service
The sheer scale of identity theft and associated activities has led to the appearance of numerous ID protection organizations, with different sets of services suitable both for individual people and companies. You may find comprehensive descriptions of them, for example, on IdTheftAuthority.com – if you want to keep track of all your bank account and prevent credit card fraud and other similarly unpleasant eventualities they are certainly worth considering.
Today computer viruses, Trojans and worms rarely crash your system or delete your data – they pursue more practical goals, like stealing your passwords, numbers of your credit cards and similar information. Even a 30-symbol password isn’t going to protect you from malicious software reading your keystrokes from inside your system. What you can do to avoid it? Have dependable anti-virus software running at all times. Check suspicious files with VirusTotal or similar services. Try not to visit dubious websites if it can be helped.
Don’t Click Mail Links
Never click on links in emails unless you are absolutely sure they are safe. Even if the mail comes from a trustworthy source – the email address could have been hijacked by malware to spread itself. This goes double for emails seemingly coming from banks and other financial institutions asking you to log in – they are almost certain to be scams.
Scan Your Downloads
Never open email attachments or downloads directly from the browser. Download them first, run them through your anti-virus, check them through online anti-virus aggregators, and only then you may, tentatively, open them. It still pays to avoid downloading files from potentially dubious sources – even a seemingly excessive anti-viral check sometimes fails to detect malicious software.
In the long run, your best protection against online dangers isn’t any kind of software – it is your own common sense. When you are about to do something online, ask yourself if it is a good idea, if it is risky, and if this risk is worth it – and everything will be alright.
Hello. Just a quick update. I’m blogging. Again! It’s been a long, long road since 8List back in 2012. Just this week, the team at Manila Bulletin soft-lunched MBLife, which is essentially our own agile experiment at our millennial marketing efforts.
From the lighter side of Manila Bulletin, we welcome you to MB LIFE, our latest lifestyle portal among our ever-growing portfolio of new products. Yes, there are articles. But more than that, we choose to be a bit more self-aware by welcoming you into our home, namely to our curated collection of “very nice things.” On one hand, there are toys. Lots of them. Absent of pretense, we open our ever-growing toy collection to the public eye through our TOY SHELF section. Then there’s the nostalgia. Being in the most unique position of having chronicled news in the Philippines for the past 116 years, we open our doors to the prized archives of historical front pages, photography, and vintage ads through NOSTALGIA MANILA. These, together with our bite-sized web documentaries, tutorials and slice of life (the agonies and the ecstasies) op-eds comprise our daily dispatches for the everyday millennial.

Krizette Chu of Manila Bulletin’s Panorama asked me to do an opinion piece on how I thought technology changes the way we deal with people. Being a young parent, I wrote about iPad parenting (it’s benefits!) and building resilience. This is an excerpt of the piece. The full article can be found online.

There was nothing but excitement as the escalator took me up to the floor of Arrozeria at the Century Mall. Known for its paella and other dishes focused on rice, the venue of choice piqued my (blooming) sensitivities to expand my palate. This was the lunch venue of Cheryl Tiu’s “Cross Cultures” food tour, a movement to experience the food we don’t often see (or taste) very often. For lunch, we had Rachaleve’s Kenyan Cuisine behind the counter. Her full name is Rachaleve Kamau, born in Nairobi and like many foreigners with similar origins stories of landing in the Philippines, fell in love with Manila in 2009. She lives here part time, sharing Kenyan cuisine in dappled regularity at bazaars and catering.
Dentists know that expanding a practice is hard work, but with a little creativity, there are easy things that can be done to help maximize a dental business.

Unfortunately, not everybody is able to turn an audio production or audio engineering career into a success. A lot of people are simply amateurs who experiment as a thing to do as a hobby or for simple fun, and they then start to see themselves as professionals. It is also for this reason that you can find plenty of online courses, many of which are free, in this field. However, these courses are often pretty much worthless for someone who truly wants to start a career. If you want to become an audio producer or audio engineer, you will need to go to a serious audio engineering school. This is where you will truly learn everything about how sound works, how to take it apart, how to use computers to manipulate audio data and more. You can choose to do this one step at a time, by taking free online tutorials, but if you really want to make it in this field, you will need to go to proper school.
A lot of companies organize large scale events, such as seminars or office parties, and forget to focus on audio visual equipment and lighting. This is mainly because they don’t know how much planning is actually involved in this. The technical side is something that most people have little understanding of, after all. According to a prominent audio visual company, a number of problems are most common.
There is a huge rise in demand for loans for people with poor credit ratings. This is mainly because everyday people are still suffering from the recent economic collapse. Additionally, prices continue to rise. People with bad credit often feel as if there is no way out for them if they need money in a hurry. If you find yourself in that situation, the following tips may be of benefit for you.
Everybody dreams of owning their own home. However, when they first approach a bank to find out if they can get a loan, they suddenly find out there is a lot more to it than simply making an application. This is why it may be useful to have a checklist at hand to make sure you do everything you need to do, and to do it right as well.
