Um, scary is when someone takes the electrical grid down. Since when is losing access to Amazon scary to anyone other than Amazon execs and shareholders? From Bill B via e-mail: The whole breathless coverage of the DDoS attack against Dyn borders on comedy. But, hey, its great P.R. for the cyber expert crowd. I keep waiting for hackers to give Merica a shove hard enough to knock it down but it never happens. Not that Twitter going down means squat to all those minimum wage slaves doing the Dollar Store shuffle. Blame the Internet of Things for Destroying the Internet Today Motherboard. I remember when Michael Hawley of MIT was providing me support for my NeXT computer (yes, one of the virtues of having a NeXT was having access to top technologists).

What Are The Different Insurance Coverages Offered By An Employer
It’s important to put your nose to the grindstone when it comes to finding a job. Choose a school that will provide you with the education needed and look for jobs that will help you get some experience in the industry you are interested in. Keep grades as good as you possibly can in order to reflect dedication and perseverance.
Take advantage of the resources and networks around you, talk to people. They might be able to introduce you to potential employers. Sometimes people don’t investigate these opportunities, but they can really be beneficial to you.
If you can’t find work, you should rethink your job search strategies. Maintain a high level of persistence when job searching. Take the time to go to areas you may not have gone to otherwise, but make sure you can afford to make it there if you do get a job.
If you are still employed while looking for another job, it is important to always do your best work. Otherwise, you may develop a reputation for not following through. How would this look to a prospective employer? Always give it one hundred and ten percent.
LinkedIn is a valuable tool to use while job searching. There is a section of the website called “Questions & Answers” that will let you show off your skills within your industry. You should also utilize this section to ask others about their experiences.
Bring up your qualifications for a certain job in a cover letter. If they mention leadership skills, you should obviously describe times you’ve been a leader. After compiling your cover letter, take ample time to edit it. You want it to be very appealing, while also remaining short and to the point.
Dress for success for your job interview. Have a well groomed appearance and job-appropriate clothing. Potential employers will probably judge you on what they see, so be sure to leave them with a positive impression.
If you don’t already have one, get a professional sounding email address. Your potential employer will see your contact information right at the top of your resume. Simply get an email address with your first and last name or something else very simple. An employer could pass you up for the job you really want because of a juvenile, unprofessional email that you set up without thinking about it.
Make sure that your references are up to date. It’s not helpful to have old information on your resume. Verify that the location information for your references is correct.
Use the employer’s insurance plan for your health insurance needs. The premium is taken from your check before taxes and it is surely cheaper than any individual plan. Married couples should compare their employee benefits plans to see which one gives the most value.
A company wants to make money. When getting ready for an interview, think of ways to showcase your profit-generating talents. Employers will obviously want you to be trustworthy and hard-working, but it is crucial that you also give them a potential for profit.
Use an employment agency. These agencies are usually free and can boost your job hunting ability. These agencies will help to match you with something you’re qualified for, so it saves a lot of time and effort. Stay in touch with the agency and make sure your resume is still at the top of the stack.
Try networking in your desired niche. Building relationships with people who are in your sector is vital towards landing a job. Get involved with the industry you choose by attending different seminars, conferences and webinars, as well as any industry networking events. Use networking to become educated about becoming a leader in that field.
You may need to take a job in another field if you are in need of income while you perform your job search. You could work at a restaurant, for example, when you’re looking for work in a different field.
A smart idea for self-employed individuals is to maintain records of what you buy. You need to keep a record of every receipt you have so that you’re able to report these things on your taxes. Your finances will be in better shape when you keep everything organized.
Phone interviews deserve the same preparation as conventional ones. Get a speech written and memorized that goes over what you’ve accomplished, what your goals are, and why you think the job is right for you. You will have a better chance of getting an interview in person with this technique.
Don’t give false information on your resume, no matter if the truth may never be known. If something happened in the past that you would rather that others do not know, do not list on the resume. If your employer does learn of your lying, you will get fired.

Shake hands once again, wish them a great day ahead and leave the room with confidence. Lack of proper eye contact reduces your credibility while giving an interview or while delivering a public speech. On such instances, it is your problem solving ability that will help you in dealing with different situations. Make sure you write the introduction in brief. Facial Expression and Eye Contact – One’s disagreement or agreement is reflected on one’s face. Too many slides, and the presentation will have to be rushed through, and will cause confusion in the minds of the audience. While delivering a speech, it is important that you make eye contact with several people or groups of people. What really amazes me about these marvelous organs of vision is the clues that they give of one’s feelings. In the latter, gestures are governed by the nature of the physical space we share with people surrounding us.
Indications : Fixed eyes, reduced blinking, unconscious movement of tongue, slightly raised eyebrows, and head either erect or pushed forward. All such courtesies will win you many brownie points and can help you become successful in the interview.

This way physical space can be used to express intimacy, concern, affection, neglect, anger, and many other forms of non-verbal messages.

Always make eye contact with your audience, as this speaks volumes about your confidence. Make sure you mention all the points that you will be highlighting in the presentation. Answer according to your personal preference. The focus should be completely on you and, therefore, your background should be as vacant as possible.
Shotgun was collaborating with Darvag Theatre of Oakland, an Iranian-American troupe that mostly performs in Farsi. The production was an English translation of ‘The Death of Yazdgerd,’ the last pre-Islamic Shah of Iran, killed under mysterious circumstances after the battle won by the Arab Muslim invaders. The play was written by Bahram Beyzaie. After seeing the show, which centered around the questioning of a miller and his family–Yazgerd’s body (present onstage, resting in state, wearing a golden mask) had been found in a mill–and their often contradictory acting out of the events leading to the discovery (something a little like the great story and film of ‘Rashomon’) or certain “Absurdist” plays)–I reviewed the script as “delicious theater” in the Planet and told others it was the finest play by a living playwright I’d reviewed for any publication. Twelve years later, I feel the same. ContinueA few years ago, I found out that Beyzaie–not only a playwright, but pioneer filmmaker, scholar, teacher who’s often credited with the founding of an original Iranian form of theater in the 60s–was teaching at Stanford. I saw a production of his–the first Iranian shadowplay (an ancient Central Asian tradition, probably via China) in centuries–and was able to interview him in the office of Dr. Abbas Milani, director of Iranian Studies at stanford, and found him a remarkable, urbane man of the theater, brilliant in conversation. Later, I saw his first film, which had been restored in Milan, at the pacific Film archive as part of the SF International Film Festival. Beyzaie’s still teaching at Stanford. And this weekend and next, the second part of his new play, ‘Tarabnameh,’ will play at the De Anza College Visual & Performing Arts Center in Cupertino, produced by Iranian Studies at Stanford and directed by Beyzaie and featuring Shabnam Tooneh, an actress well-known to Iranians. ‘Talabnameh’ is about a hadji who sets out to sell his servant and buy a slave girl–and what he sees along the way: a poet about to be beheaded, a young lover in search of his abducted beloved, banned troubadours desperate to perform and bring happiness to people … “the world they see is all topsy-turvy.” It’s based in an old Iranian performance tradition, Takhte-Hozi, with comedy, music, dance and poetry–bringing traditional performance styles into modern theater to give them new life is a Beyzaie specialty. It’s long–5 1/2 hours, with two intermissions, one for 30 minutes–and in Farsi.
