How two factor authentication can protect you

The way we identify ourselves on the internet is with a username and password. Usually the username is either our email, our name, or some other identifier we use repeatedly.

Many times your username is used to identify comments that you make on the site. To steal your account all an attacker needs to do is guess your password, since in most cases your username is readily available.

Slip and Fall Injuries that Happen at the Gym

When people go to the gym, it’s usually to lose weight, work off stress or a multitude of other reasons that often lead to a healthy lifestyle.

With heavy weights, large machines and energetic classes, people get in shape or maintain their health with all that gyms offer. Unfortunately, with any activity, there are potential risks involved.

When signing up for a gym membership, there will be a liability waiver to protect the gym from any liability claim that may occur from an accident.

Far out on US98 and nestled in the sleepy countryside beyond Brooksville might not seem an obvious place to base an IT company leading the way in full turnkey IT solutions.

But that’s where Chuck Wilson and his wife and business partner Terry Weaver decided was an absolutely great place to locate their business: Wilson Technology Group and the business of telecommunications and technology industry design and implementation.

“It was in 2000 and we decided we didn’t want to be city people any more — that’s when we discovered Brooksville,” Wilson said.

Is driver assist technology making you safer?

Recently there was a fatal crash of a driver using the Tesla Model S’s autopilot feature. This brought discussions of driver assist technologies to the forefront. There are a number of companies working on developing self driving cars including Tesla, Google, Apple, and BMW.

Tesla’s autopilot uses Autosteer to keep the car in the current lane and Traffic-Aware Cruise Control to maintain the car’s speed. On a highway, the car will virtually drive itself. Tesla’s autopilot requires that the driver’s hands stay on the wheel while driving to enforce driver engagement.
