Developing network literacy is a continuous process of, not only “becoming comfortable and proficient with tools to use in interactive online environments,” but also becoming knowledgeable about how to protect yourself and your online identify in an online environment.One of the most common methods that criminals use to steal users online identity is by getting the user to reveal personal details through a method called “phishing”. Phishing is defined as a “criminal mechanism employing both social engineering and technical subterfuge to steal consumers’ personal identity data and financial account credentials.” Criminals often use very realistic emails asking the user to reveal personal information such as passwords or financial information.Another form of phishing is called “spear phishing”. The difference between phishing and spear phishing is that spear phishing is sent to targeted individuals whereas phishing is sent to a mass of individuals. According to Forbes, spear phishing is an example of how John Podesta’s emails were hacked. Criminals emailed Podesta from a spoofed webpage in which he was asked to change his password. After he clicked on the link, the criminals were able to access his emails with the stolen password. With the stolen password, criminals were able to use that password to connect to other social networks because the same password was used for his Twitter account.In order to stay vigilant against phishing and spear phishing follow these recommendations:Never use the same password for any accountNever go to a site by clicking on an email, instead type the url directly in the browser.Enable two factor authentication to prevent hackers from gaining access to a user credentials.Please continue the conversation by adding more recommendations to the list and in the near future we will summarize the list.Author: Terrence Wolfork (+Terrence Wolfork,@trwolfork )This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network blog on November 3, 2016.

Everything You Need to Know About Layer Styles in After Effects
Gradient OverlayThe Gradient Overlay style enables you to use multiple colors to create a smooth transition from one color to another across your title. Be sure to click on “Edit Gradient” to adjust the colors.Color OverlayThis is a very simple Layer Style — the Color Overlay option transforms the color of the title from one color to another.StrokeVery straightforward: the stroke Layer Style creates an outline around titles and objects.Bevel and EmbossThe best method for quickly creating 3D titles is using the Bevel and Emboss style. This Layer Style gives you the option to increase and control the depth of your title.Drop ShadowThere’s a Drop Shadow effect under the “Effects” tab. However, you can easily group your Layer Styles together by using the Drop Shadow as a style rather than an effect. The Drop Shadow applies a nice shadow behind your title.Inner ShadowSimilar to the Drop Shadow style, the Inner Shadow produces a thin shadow within your title. Using the Inner Shadow creates depth and contrast in your title elements.Inner Glow & Outer GlowThe main difference between the shadow and the glow Layer Styles is the blending mode option. The Inner Glow and Outer Glow styles allow you to create a glow around your title using using blend modes.SatinLastly, the Satin effect darkens the interior portion of titles and objects and helps create undefined contrast.Overall, Layer Styles allow After Effects users to create detailed titles and objects that stand apart from regular design. Each Layer Style is uniquely organized to stack among the other styles. So, there’s no need to worry about organization, like you would need to with effects.Looking for more video tutorials?

MISC Inks Time Charter Deals for Two LNG Carriers
zoomImage Courtesy: MISC MISC Berhad has signed two time charter contracts with LNG Shipping S.p.A. (LSS), a 100% owned subsidiary of Eni S.p.A, for two LNG carriers.The ships in question are ENI’s LNG Portovenere and LNG Lerici, built by Fincantieri in 1997 and 1998, respectively.As informed, the time charter contracts are pursuant to a sale agreement between LSS and MISC, which resulted in MISC acquiring the two vessels from LSS.The two 65,000 cbm LNG carriers, which are currently trading in the Asia Pacific region, will be used to transport LNG cargoes to meet the MISC’s trading needs in the international waters, the company said.The five-year charter period will tentatively commence in December 2018 for LNG Portovenere and in January 2019 for LNG Lerici, with an estimated combined contract value of USD 133 million.“Acquisition of the two vessels as well as the TCPs will further strengthen MISC’s position (…) by boosting the strength of our fleet as well as our capacity to support the LNG demand worldwide. This business opportunity supports the MISC2020 strategy for our LNG business segment in expanding our portfolio of customers,” Yee Yang Chien, MISC’s President / Group Chief Executive Officer, commented.“In view of the evolving marketplace, there is certainly potential for us to diversify our solutions by including mid-scale and small-scale LNG transportation especially with the growing spot market demand for LNG trading and this will enable MISC to develop our capability in the trading of multiple-size vessels as well as our reach to other global locations,” he added.Yee further said that the mid-sized LNG carriers have the potential to be converted into mid-sized floating storage regasification unit (FSRU), floating storage unit (FSU) or other alternative LNG floating solution projects upon expiry of the charter.Currently, MISC’s LNG fleet comprises 28 LNG carriers and two FSUs with a combined deadweight tonnage capacity of over 2 million dwt.Earlier this month, MISC announced its financial results for the 9-month period ended September 30, 2018, showing that the group posted a 15.9% lower revenue. The revenue stood at MYR 6,391.8 million in the first nine months of this year, against MYR 7,603.2 million seen in the corresponding period last year.The decrease in revenue was mainly from the offshore segment as the corresponding period included a recognition of a one time gain for Gumusut-Kakap Semi-Floating ProductionSystem (L) Limited (GKL) variation works arising from the favorable adjudication decisions in 2017 and lower construction revenue for FSO Benchamas 2 in the current period. The revenue was also dampened by the LNG segment and petroleum segment.Group profit before tax of MYR 988.8 million was lower than the corresponding period’s profit before tax of MYR 1,961.5 million caused by the decrease in MISC’s operating profit.
The Broncos New Quarterback Is Inexperienced But At Least Hes Not Peyton
By contrast, the average defending champ through 2015 returned a QB with 74.8 career starts and a lifetime AV of 66.5, meaning they were both pretty seasoned and pretty good. And that experience has traditionally been an advantage in the pursuit of a repeat Super Bowl bid. All else being equal, teams whose opening-day QBs have more career AV under their belt tend to perform better in the passing game. For instance, a simple regression would predict a 70-AV QB’s team to pass the ball with a half-standard deviation greater efficiency3According to Football Outsiders’ defense-adjusted value over average (DVOA) metric. — the equivalent of four-fifths of an extra win over a full season — than that of a zero-AV QB, while a more complex fit suggests the same edge in experience could be worth even more, as much as a full standard deviation of passing efficiency or 1.7 wins. When the Denver Broncos begin their title defense with Trevor Siemian under center on Sept. 8, they’ll be in a rare spot for reigning Super Bowl winners. Last year’s starting QB, Peyton Manning, retired in March, guaranteeing Denver would become only the fifth champ of the Super Bowl era1Since opening day of 1967, because there was no defending Super Bowl champ in Week 1 of the 1966 season. whose opening-day primary quarterback2For the purposes of this entire article, I’ll be referring to a team’s “primary QB” — the player who led the team in dropbacks in a game — as a proxy for its starter, since Pro-Football-Reference’s Game Finder doesn’t provide data on which QB started each game. during the next season was not the same signal-caller who led the way on Super Sunday.And even among that group of new QBs, Siemian is almost uniquely inexperienced. Assuming he ends up being Denver’s primary passer in Week 1, he’ll join another Bronco — Brian Griese, who replaced John Elway in 1999 — as the only opening-day primary QBs for a defending champion whose prior career featured both zero career starts and zero points of career Approximate Value (AV). So, given Siemian’s lack of experience (let alone his meager draft pedigree), we’d expect him to lead a passing attack that’s fairly lousy. But even if Siemian spearheads a passing offense with a DVOA index4Which sets DVOA on a common scale where 100 is league average and a standard deviation in either direction is 15 points. of 90, two-thirds of a standard deviation worse than NFL average — as the average zero-AV opening day starter has during the Super Bowl era — it would represent an improvement to the Broncos’ passing attack.Simply put, Denver won the Super Bowl last season in spite of its passing offense, not because of it. In terms of passing efficiency, the Broncos were an entire standard deviation worse than league average last season, which equated to the NFL’s eighth-most inefficient aerial attack. And Manning himself was awful, producing the worst season of any Super Bowl QB in history. His backup, Brock Osweiler, wasn’t great either, but if Siemian’s 2016 performance can mimic Osweiler’s more than Manning’s, the Broncos will still be better through the air than they were a year ago.And with a defense as dominant as the Broncos still possess, that might be enough to contend for another Super Bowl, even given Siemian’s historic inexperience under center.
Ohio State wrestler Kyle Snyder qualifies for 2016 Olympics in Rio de
OSU sophomore Kyle Snyder enters the arena during the 2016 NCAA Wrestling Championships on March 19 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Credit: Courtesy of OSUAfter winning a world championship, a Big Ten championship and a national championship in less than a year, Ohio State sophomore wrestler Kyle Snyder added another accomplishment to his résumé: an Olympic berth.Snyder was victorious in Iowa City, Iowa, on Sunday after taking down 2012 Olympic gold medalist Jake Varner in the best-of-three series of matches. As the reigning world champion, Snyder received an automatic spot in the finals.“It’s pretty hard to describe,” Snyder said in an OSU press release. “It started off making it to the NCAA finals as a true freshman then losing that. After that I kind of fell into a lot of success, not really fall into it but through a lot of hard work and self-belief. I really haven’t had a chance to look back on it yet, honestly.”Varner won in the first meeting, but Snyder rebounded after a short resting period. The OSU sophomore tied the score 4-4 in the initial bout but lost because of criteria.Snyder walked out from the locker room with a much more focused demeanor for the next meeting and showed complete control in the next two matches, outscoring Varner 10-1.“It was pretty nerve-wracking,” Snyder said in the release. “I had all intentions of winning the first match and winning two in a row. But that is why the sport of wrestling is great because you never know what is going to happen. You never know if you are going to win or lose, all you can do is just prepare.”It’s the fourth time Snyder has beaten Varner in his career. Last year, prior to his world championship, Snyder toppled Varner twice in the U.S. Team Trials and once at the U.S. Open.The freshly crowned heavyweight champion is set to represent the United States at 97 kilograms in Rio de Janeiro from Aug. 5 to 21. Snyder joins a handful of OSU alumni who have earned their way onto the U.S. Olympic team in the past. Mark Coleman finished seventh in 1992, while Perry Martter and Harry Steel competed in 1924.Snyder is the only Buckeye wrestler to make it to the Olympics while an active member of the Scarlet and Gray.All other OSU wrestlers shooting for a spot on the national team were eliminated from contention earlier in the day, including redshirt sophomore Nathan Tomasello and the Buckeyes’ most notable alumnus, four-time NCAA champion Logan Stieber. Tomasello lost in the quarterfinals, while Stieber lost in the semifinals.
Columbus Clippers closing in on 2nd consecutive TripleA championship
Minor league baseball clubs contend with many obstacles over the course of a season, including player transactions and meeting the needs of their Major League parent clubs. The Columbus Clippers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, overcame numerous hindrances to success in 2011 and won its second consecutive Governor’s Cup Championship against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs Friday. They will now represent the International League in the Triple-A National Championship Game against Pacific League champion Omaha Storm Chasers today. In just his second season as Clippers manager, Mike Sarbaugh led his team to an 88-56 regular season record — the best in the International League’s West division. The Clippers met the Durham Bulls, the South division champs, in the first round of the playoffs, and swept the Bulls, 3-0, to advance to play the Lehigh Valley IronPigs for the Governor’s Cup championship. Columbus responded to its 5-2 loss in game one of the best-of-five championship series by winning the next three games, the last two of which were at the IronPigs’ Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pa., to advance to today’s Triple-A national championship game. After the Clippers’ game two win at Huntington Park, first baseman Beau Mills said the search for consistent success is what minor league ball is all about. “It’s learning how to have consecutive (winning) seasons,” Mills said, “and don’t lose focus throughout the year.” Focus can be hard to maintain with a changing cast of players, though — Columbus endured 37 player transactions of various sorts in September alone. Eleven of those transactions were players moving between the Clippers and Indians. “That’s part of the game,” Mills said. “You’re happy for them (players that get called up), but the guys coming up are going to be great players. That’s why they’re coming up here. So, we don’t necessarily take it on us as a team when we lose somebody. “We expect that guy that’s getting called up to step right in.” Columbus third baseman Jared Goedert agreed. “We’ve had guys step in and do just as well or even better in some cases,” he said. “It’s just been the consistency of guys that are here and guys that continue to come up or come down.” Goedert also said that, as minor league players, the frequency of player transactions is a reminder of the goal that each player is chasing: to become an every-day lineup fixture with a big league club. “You realize, at this level of play especially, (the transactions) are a part of it, a part of the process,” he said. “If anything else, for the guys who are still here, it makes you realize you are right there. “I mean, yeah, you lose a good player, but you realize you’ve got to do your job and it’s a good thing to know that you’re that close (to the Majors).” Speaking of close, the Clippers are also one win away from back-to-back national championships. Today, Columbus will face the Pacific Coast League champion Storm Chasers in the one-off, winner-take-all Triple-A National Championship game in Albuquerque, N.M. Omaha, the minor league affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, captured the Pacific Coast League’s American Northern division championship after compiling a regular season record of 79-62. The Storm Chasers earned their berth in the national championship game when they beat the Sacramento River Cats, 11-6, Friday. The Pacific Coast League championship is the first in team history for the Storm Chasers. So, the playoff-tested Clippers are now set for a title clash with Omaha, national championship game newcomers. The Clippers did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s Monday request for comment. Sarbaugh, who was named the International League’s 2011 Manager of the Year, said last week that the Clippers will rely on their usual strengths, which he says are “pitching and good hitting.” “We’ve just done a good job scouting players. We have a lot of guys get called up, but the talent we bring in is good and they seem to just pick up where they left off,” Sarbaugh said. Picking up where Columbus left off the 2010 season would mean claiming the national title, but Mills said Wednesday the team doesn’t put added pressure on itself in the postseason. “None of us are thinking about last year,” he said. “I think pressure is what you put on yourself and we aren’t putting that on ourselves.” First pitch of today’s championship game in Albuquerque, N.M., at Isotopes Park is scheduled for 8 p.m. MDT.

David Beckham plans for star arrivals for Miami team
David Beckham has reportedly begun planning to recruit star names after his MLS franchise Miami were given their license to compete in the league from 2020According to the Daily Mirror, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star is targeting some big names from the outset with Carlo Ancelotti reportedly being the leading candidate to lead the new team out for their debut campaign.Should Beckham fail to acquire his former AC Milan manager’s services, he then plans to target his former teammate Zinedine Zidane who currently manages Real. Although it is unlikely that the Frenchman will join Miami anytime in the near future.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The English newspaper has also reported that Wayne Rooney is another target that the former England captain has in mind for the squad. The forward has recently re-joined his boyhood club Everton and has recently revealed his desire to manage the club one day in the future, but has hinted at an interest in playing in the MLS in the past.The biggest surprise target is Cristiano Ronaldo, who succeeded Beckham as the new number 7 at United back in 2003. By 2020, the Portuguese star will be 35 years old and may see the move as an ideal prospect in order to maintain his global status.“I want Miami to be the best in the MLS,” insisted Beckham.
