Finals week, when you need to show everything you have — or have not — learned in class. “Around finals time, students will do just about anything,” former student Shandra (not her real name) told Archer News. Now, that “just about anything” includes massive computer attacks. Students are using technology to try to shut down finals testing — and their entire university system. A student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro posted his frustration on Facebook in 2016.
What does it mean and why should you care about it? First of all, it’s kind of like a password on steroids. It’s a way of verifying who you are —”authentication” — with many things instead of just one password. Many things, or “multiple factors.”We get help in understanding cybersecurity terms from security professionals at Archer Security Group, parent company of Archer News, as part of our “What is…?” series. Think about when you go to the ATM, for example.
He earned millions scamming people & now he has to pay it back, says judge. He spent five years ripping people off, tricking them out of their used phones and amassing $42 million in profits, the Federal Trade Commission said. Now Vadim Kruchinin has a week to pay it back. Today, a judge ordered a judgment against him for the $42,427,260.57 that the FTC said he earned as head of Laptop and Desktop Repair in Sparks, Nevada.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
