Donald Trump's YouTube Ban: Live with It

Today, on the Wall Street Journal, Tripp Mickle wrote Trump Is Still Banned on YouTube. Now the Clock Is Ticking . But Mickle wrote, “With Donald Trump’s return to Facebook in limbo, YouTube has emerged as the former president’s best chance to return to social media in the near future” ( link ). Mickle believes former United States president Donald Trump has a clear path back to the spotlight. But why? Trump Incited the January 6, 2021 Insurrection Even though millions of Americans believe otherwise, approximately 100 million ( link ), I shall contend with this: because of Donald Trump, the insurrection. On January 6, 2021, I watched it transpire from my hotel room in Brentwood, Tennessee: it was an atrocity. President Trump goaded his crowd of supporters over and again, but he was not alone. He repeatedly told his audience to fight. In America, the English word, fight, means the same thing it does in other parts of the world where English is spoken: it is a serious word that is relate

Changing Pace: Pursuing a 2nd Bachelor's Degree

In higher education, nothing sets the standard for entry level jobs like a Bachelor's degree. Learners often seek an Associate's degree, according to the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics), 49 percent of the United States population ( link ). But they also often progress to a Bachelor's level degree, us being 39 percent of the United States population according to NCES. Thus, there is a 10 percent difference in population regarding who has an Associate's degree versus who has a Bachelor's degree. Even greater, the NCES reported 9 percent of the United States population has a Master's or Doctorate degree: I am working toward a Master's degree. But I recently decided to try for something I wanted, years ago: a 2nd Bachelor's degree. Let me explain. Standards Are High In my current university, the Johns Hopkins University, the standard is raised high: basically, I need a B- or better for every class (I can earn a degree with 1 C-range grade, bu

The Economics of Autonomy

In ancient legend, there is a Creation story: in contemporary times, it is known as the first book of Moses called the book of Genesis. When God IS creating the world, Genesis (KJV) states, “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3). According to legend, the 1st great Prophet, named Isaiah, told his faith to his friends, his people, and his enemies. Isaiah wrote, “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2) A man called the Christ was crucified, then according to Roman Empire record, died, but according to Christian legend, rose again. In Christian tradition, Jesus the Christ stated Christians should conclude our prayers to God, our Father, this way: “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:13). Following Jesus of Nazareth, a New Testament writer,

Utilizing Media: A Response to Deepfakes

  Of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), a magazine called Communication of the ACM's edition releases 1 month before its stated release month. In the latest edition, regarding March 2021, of Communications of the ACM , Column Editor, Susan J. Winter wrote Computing Ethics: What To Do About Deepfakes . Regarding Winter’s desire to halt or hinder illegal or unethical deepfakes, a video technology like wearing a full body masking suit, Winter wrote, “Here are three areas where technical experts can make positive contributions to the development of synthetic media technologies: education and media literacy, subject defense, and verification” (Winter, March, 2021). Winter was saying actions such as teaching and having disruptive technology knowledge, researching professionally, and proving concepts are parts of deepfake experts’ calculus. But this much work specializes such that entry level, junior, work will probably be offered to overqualified professionals. Technic

We Should Have Already Had This: The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression

  On October 22, 2020, yesterday, Dexter Johnson posted The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression . Within this topic, Dexter Johnson regards a Stanford University research team and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (its former name was the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center [1] ). Johnson stated: Now [Yi] Cui and his research team, in collaboration with SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have offered some exciting new capabilities for lithium-ion batteries based around a new polymer material they are using in the current collectors for them. The researchers claim this new design to current collectors increases efficiency in Li-ion batteries and reduces the risk of fires associated with these batteries. [2]   Johnson was saying this: fires are a current Li-ion battery threat that has been realized, but a new design can secure client use-case safety, and this required this battery redesigned. As this technology approaches marketplace entry points, this shall c

On Hacking the Axis and Securing History Records

  On Security Requirements, Review Physical Might On May 7, 2020, John Arquilla wrote the August, 2020 blog column, Hacking the Axis . When qualifying great acts, consider Arquilla’s statement and regard for the twenty first century anno domini second World War, acronymed WWII. Arquilla wrote, “Observations of the 75 th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe (May 8, 1945) included remembrances of such searing events as the struggle on Omaha Beach on D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge, and at least some recognition of the enormous contribution made by the Russian people to the defeat of Fascism” (Arquilla, 2020). Arquilla mentioned that the second World War’s European conclusion involved great physical struggles. Arquilla’s lesson learned began at the beginning of his column: in public security, physical might is important, and this is an utter security aspect. Emergent Cybersecurity Requirements With physical security, there is an emergent cybersecurity necessity that John

Stakeholder Contexts and Industry Standards: ISO/IEC 38500 IT Governance, but then an IT Compliance Framework

ISO / IEC 38500 IT Governance ^ Compliance In information technology, standards for administration and enforcement of general applications are related to the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, and the International Electrotechnical Commission, or IEC. The ISO/IEC 38500 IT governance and compliance framework is such a standard. According to A. L. Holt (2013), directors and senior officers understanding their responsibility for governing information technology systems addresses three issues: procured system integration, responding to legislative requirements for storing personal data, and documentation (Part A, Sec. 3).  SMEs Linked to Measurable Successful Outcomes With regard to small and medium-sized enterprises, or SMEs, Olaitan Olutoyin and Stephen Flowerday suggested that the IT governance structure and the operational governance processes are linked to measurable successful outcomes by three key pillars (2016). Olutoyin and Flowerday (2016) said that the three

Cyber Security: The New Digital Frontier, but the Same Spirit Battle

                Considering Holy Security When Paul, formerly known as Saul of Tarsus, was preaching the good word, he saw the purpose of protecting the assets of a person as ultimately important. Paul said, “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” ( New International Version , Eph 6:11-17). Paul said to protect against evil with ABBA's word. In my view, this means applying the spirituality of holy defense to the life of an individual in any place and time. In contemporary times, cybersecurity can be a digital representation of the principalities of holiness effectively protecting against the sins of humanity. Cyber Security Hygiene Larry Magid shared insights about cyber security. Magid said, “So your cyber hygiene isn’t just about protecting you, it’s about protecting all of us” (Magid, 2014). The woman should protect her own interests and the interests of those who she works with along with her clients because true security i

Data Work and Digitization: The impact of computerized systems and automation on healthcare professionals

Data Work and Digitization In the Spring 2020 edition of XRDS (CROSSROADS), Vol 26 No.3, Claus Bossen wrote  Data Work and Digitization: The impact of computerized systems and automation on healthcare professionals . Bossen began, “After two decades of intensive digitization of healthcare in the U.S. and Europe, we are starting to see the contours of what it is like to work in digitized healthcare environments” (Bossen, Spring 2020). Bossen focused on three digitization topics in the medical environment: EHRs (electronic healthcare records), DRGs (diagnosis-related groups), and CDISs (clinical documentation improvement specialists). EHRs are having the ease of parallelizing information intersecting professionals and organizational peer review groups contrasted from paper-based records, and this includes next-turn no-deadlock distributing and parallelizing things like MR-MRscans and ongoing examining results: giving persons easy to use software without blocks may allow the privilege of

I am ready After a hiatus: with the readers, I am ready.  COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity   On June 9, 2020, the IEEE Transmitter (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers Transmitter) wrote COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity . In this Transmitter article, the IEEE wrote that numerous students experienced academic difficulties because of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, causing widespread problems. The IEEE wrote, “while virtual learning helps reduce the risk of person-to-person transmission, schools were presented with a new problem: how to ensure every student has internet access so they could continue their education remotely” ( IEEE ). On the other hand, IEEE Senior Member David Witkowski is enthusiastic about a mobile generation of learners, but concerned regarding people enfortressed only to stay there and avoid public establishments.
