In his essay, Percy communicates well educated people who are also aware of technology’s advantages and disadvantages. He opposes technology’s influence on people. He also opposes people’s influence on other people. Technology has a great influence on people.
The NSA or the National Security Agency carries out most of the domestic surveillance in the United States. Before the 9/11 attacks the NSA needed approval from a court, but after the attacks, they were given free reign to copy any data that possibly linked to terrorist activities. This led to many arguments over whether this collection of data was unconstitutional or not. The extent of this surveillance shocked many people; many civil rights advocates thought that this surveillance breached United States citizens’ rights. Because of the threat of domestic surveillance in the United States it should be decreased drastically but not entirely stopped.
Well the answer to this questions is no. According to CNN, “The CIA had quite a bit of information about two of the hijackers and their presence in the United States before 9/11,” and their threat reports was shared with Bush administration official but even after multiple warnings, the Bush administration was not able to respond to these threats appropriately (Bergen P). Even though it is clear that NSA spying would not resolve in the prevention of such a detrimental terrorist attack, it is still their reason on continuing the program. The NSA also did not prevent the Boston bombing on April 15, 2013, which killed three people and wounded more than 260 people (Levitz J). The NSA spends around $2 billion each year but the results that the government is getting is not quite promising (Sahadi J).
Barclays’ history suggests, that a company needs both: physical safety as well as cyber. Since hackers could pretend to be IT specialists and access the KVM switch, more control should be arranged on external workers. Also, the strict control of the KVM switch should be introduced: using it only on isolated networks with no sensitive data, isolate all the confidential data, controlling vulnerabilities of video and audio equipment and taking care of the designs. Huge data leak scandal suggests, that Barclays should also take care of all stages of accessing data and authentication. The last decision that could help to avoid risks is technical personnel’ education.
Someone may hacking your dearly identity now, though without your permission. Nearly 3 billion people in the world have an Internet connection and most of them have their credit cards and social security identities, emails or phone numbers registered in social networks or shop sites. Although, not all of them hidden well from viruses or “hack codes”. This is obligatory in order to hack that identity. Mostly, in one hand, people think that hacking is bad thing and have bad consequences on social economy.
Patetic illustrates this issue by saying “We tend to lack the close supportive relationships that people in former generations enjoyed”. Patetic says this is because with technology (cars, trains, planes), families can’t find the time to see or make contact with each other very often. This argument is a problem that can be solved because there is technology (social media) that can really help with this problem. A good example of this technology is Facetime, an app that a person can use to have face to face communication even though they are miles away. Facetime is a good example because many people can use it.
Since its initiation, we only know about one instance in which the NSA stopped has stopped an act of terrorism. That’s not to say that it has only stopped one terrorist organization but this is the only on we know about, but for the amount of money (exact amount is classified, but is estimated to be about $10 billion a year) that is being spent on the NSA more should have been done by now. For example, many school shooters have posted on social media either pictures of themselves armed to the teeth or actual threats against their school. The NSA is supposed to monitor social media, phone records, etc. so why aren’t they catching these school shooters?
However despite being constantly connected, people are still feeling alone so why? With the ability to be able to keep in touch with everyone why are people lonelier than ever? The issue with social media is that people only share the good things in their life and never the bad making people judge themselves based off of other people’s so called “perfect” lives, it also makes others try to keep up with the same standard as their friends making them want to post only the good things in their life which can also make people viewing their profile not truly connect with that person as they don’t see the person’s ‘true life’ but only the good moments.
Doing little things such as smiling and doing random acts of kindness can spread enough happiness. Spending time with more and new people can make many peoples days. However, the most important change this world needs is the elimination of discrimination. Even with rules in place, many people fall in discrimination. Encouraging each other to respect each other 's differences and being there for each other can have a really substantial effect on society.
Admission: 0.86 The overall admission experiences at the Royal Ontario Museum were very neutral. While some people were satisfied and happy about the customer service, most people entered the museum with either negative or neutral feelings. Often times, students had problems with the customer services provided by the employees of the ROM. Naturally, the ROM, being a museum, has very small window of opportunity to meet or even exceed the guests’ expectations.
Presumably the FBI has all his data up until that day. The question of course is, ‘Why did he stop backing up his phone six weeks before the attack?’ Was it because he started communicating more with terrorist’s sleeper cells around the U.S. and he wanted to make sure that data didn’t get into the Cloud, or was it just because Apple kept making him change his iCloud password so often that it got incredibly confusing and it wouldn’t let him change it back to his previous password
