Wikinews Interview: Experts in IT industry comment about security of WiMAX

Monday, May 5, 2008

Computers and technology make our modern lifestyle more convenient, but they also create new risks like computer viruses and hacking. Many people want to enjoy the convenience of new technology, but they may not be aware of its problems.

WiMAX is being promoted in Taiwan by the Taipei Computer Association, the Industrial Technology Research Institute and the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Republic of China. It is considered by some to be the communication standard for the next generation of mobile devices.

Information security companies are concerned increasingly by Internet crime, and some of them question the security of WiMAX. After all, everyone wants to welcome this new technology but is afraid of its potential to cause security issues.

Some companies have analyzed potential security issues which threaten the success of WiMAX. But what have they found?

Taking the opportunity of two press conferences in Taiwan, Wikinews Journalist Rico Shen briefly interviewed both Hsiao-wen Hung, President of Microsoft Research Asia and Li Chang, Deputy Secretary General of Taipei Computer Association. With their experience in the IT industry, they agreed to comment on this question.

Services Offered By Professional Doctors In Maui

byadmin

A large number of people head to Hawaii on vacation expecting to have a happy trip. While some do experience happy times, others end up in an urgent care center where medical attention is needed. Maui is one of the popular locations for tourists to travel to. For this reason, an urgent care center is located there so any tourists who need medical attention can receive it. Professional Doctors in Maui offer a variety of services to their patients.

Prescriptions

Numerous people have prescriptions that need to be filled regularly. Those that forget to fill their prescription before heading to Maui may feel they are out of luck and have to go without. That is not the case. The urgent care center provides prescription refills for some of the generic options. People who need refills can speak to their doctor to determine whether or not their exact type of medication is available.

Allergic Reactions

Allergies can strike at any time. Some people may know they have an allergy while others have no idea until something happens to cause a reaction. The urgent center handles allergic reactions and ensures any symptoms associated with it are stopped.

Stings or Bites

A number of unfamiliar creatures reside in Hawaii. First-time visitors may be unaware of the animals and insects that are found there. If a sting or bite occurs, travelers need to visit an urgent care center right away to have the mark examined. A round of antibiotics may need to be administered to help the person heal.

Birth Control

Some may not think about bringing birth control with them when they travel. Those that decide birth control is needed can speak to a doctor at urgent care to receive what they need.

Professional Dp.m. The center is open every day, including holidays.

Treatment For Chafing

Skin Chafing is a common problem and it usually occurs in places such as the thighs, the groin, the armpits, the nipples, and generally any area that is rubbed constantly. It is particularly common in athletes and people who wear really tight clothing and it can be a frustrating problem.

There are usually no gradual symptoms that lead up to chafing, it is generally a condition which appears suddenly, and it is followed by a stinging or burning sensation. It is important that you do get the condition treated, as if you simply just carry on allowing the skin to rub together, the condition could worsen and even start to ooze.This can then cause the skin to become infected and you could have an even more painful condition to deal with!

Treatment:

1. Chafed skin will heal faster if it is left uncovered and allowed to breathe. While this may not be possible during the day, make sure that your sleepwear is loose and comfortable so that your skin can get some “airtime” while you snooze.

2. If you want to prevent chafing, you should wear loose fitting shorts, preferably knit, such as long gym shorts. What causes chafing is your upper thigh rubbing against the material in the clothing you’re wearing. It’s not something you really notice until it’s too late.

3. When you do your laundry, be sure to thoroughly rinse the soap from your clothes. And it is recommended not to use strong detergents or heavily perfumed fabric softeners. These products can cause skin irritation and make the chafing even worse.

4. Chafed skin will heal faster if it is left uncovered and allowed to breathe. While this may not be possible during the day, make sure that your sleepwear is loose and comfortable so that your skin can get some “airtime” while you snooze.

5. Using ointment or treatments such as Vaseline and Noxzema will really help to soothe the affected area. They help to keep the skin slippery, which allows the skin on the legs for example, to slip past each other, rather than rub against each other. These treatments can be really inexpensive, yet they are also really effective.

6. If you really want to stop chafing, you need to lose weight. Luckily, as obesity rates climb, the possibility of weight loss becomes more tangible. Weight loss is a good thing. It makes you more healthy, makes you look better, and it stops chafing! As I previously mentioned, losing weight is becoming easier.

7. A second option is to wear sweat pants. They’re not really “cool” anymore, but if you’re not worried about that, and you want to prevent chafing, they’re great. That’s because they have no seams. Seams are usually the culprit in chafing. They’re the part of your pants that are rubbing up against your leg. Some people have found that lathering their thighs up with petroleum jelly works wonders. The jelly makes the sweat pants actually stick to your thigh, so there’s no rubbing at all.

American film director John Hughes dies at age 59

Thursday, August 6, 2009

American film director John Hughes, noted for such movies as Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club, died Thursday due to a heart attack.

A statement, released by his representative, said that he experienced the heart attack while on a morning stroll in Manhattan, New York. Hughes was born on February 18, 1950 in Michigan. He started his career as an advertising copywriter in Chicago. By the end of the 1970s he was a frequent contributor to the National Lampoon magazine.

In the 1990s, he made the Home Alone series, which became a box office sensation and turned Macaulay Culkin into a star.

In recent years, Hughes stepped back from the movie industry to spend more time with his family. He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Nancy, two sons and four grandchildren.

Toyota, Tesla to develop electric SUV

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Toyota Motor Company announced they have formalized an agreement to develop an electric version of the RAV4 SUV with Tesla Motors.

In May 2010, Akio Toyoda and Elon Musk, leaders of Toyota and Tesla, respectively, announced they would work together on electric vehicles. The agreement formalizes this announcement and would allow Tesla to work with Toyota at an automobile production plant in California.

The plant will open 2011, when Tesla reopens it after it bought the Fremont, California plant. The plant was previously used by Toyota and General Motors, but was shut down when Toyota said it would not produce cars in California.

Tesla currently produces only a single model, the US$109,000 Roadster, although it is currently designing a second model, the Model S, which will be produced at the Fremont factory.

Analysts supported the move; John Boesel, CEO of a green-transportation trade group, said that “Toyota’s willingness to partner with Tesla to provide an electric version of one of the Japanese automaker’s existing vehicles suggests the partnership between the two companies is going to be a meaningful one.”

Following this announcement, Tesla’s shares rose $0.75, while Toyota’s fell $1.65.
