    The US government’s recent decision to ban laptop and smart devices from the cabin of flights from selected Middle Eastern and North African countries as a security measure against terrorists only sparks crucial questions about the safety of passengers in flights not under the ban.

    Dubai, UAE – May 8, 2017 – The US government’s cabin laptop ban applies to nine international airlines carrying passengers from northern Africa and Middle East to the US. According to the US’s Department of Homeland Security, the ban is being implemented as a security measure against possible terrorist placing undetectable explosive material in laptops as part of carry-on luggage.

    The decision has already raised serious questions on international flight safety. As the ban is imposed on just a select number of flights, it implies all the other flights free from the restriction carry the risk of terrorists boarding the cabin with explosive-filled laptops. It includes all the domestic flights in the US and also flights coming from countries (other than those where the 10 selected airports are located).

    “We have reason to be concerned about attempts by terrorist groups to circumvent aviation security…Implementing additional security measures enhances our ability to mitigate further attempts against the overseas aviation industry,” the US DHS noted while explaining its latest decision on the ban.

    This explanation clearly points out DHS’ lack of confidence in security checks anywhere really. Homeland Security fears that no security procedures at airport would be able to prevent terrorists with explosives in tablets or laptops from getting on a flight. Ironically, DHS’ ban includes those airports which are renowned for state of the art security and have even been praised by US President Trump himself as “first class” and “incredible” – compared to US airports.

    Why is the cabin laptop ban not also imposed on US domestic flights and international flights to the US from other countries?

    If protection from terrorists bringing explosive filled laptops into the cabins of flights is believed to be the real reason for the ban, then not placing the same restriction on the other flights actually jeopardizes the lives of the tens of millions of other passengers flying within US or to the US from other nations. The moment terrorists learn of the ban, they will use any one of the 240 airports with direct flights to the States.

    On a second thought, the ban cannot prevent the terrorists even when they are flying from the selected countries. Initially, they would check-in their laptops (filled with explosives) in luggage placed in the cargo hold of planes as per the rules.  Once they have landed they could choose any of the 240 airports to get on a direct flight to the US with explosive filled laptops as part of the their carry-ons and then blow-up that plane.

    The CEO of International Air Transport Association, Alexandre de Juniac had a most fitting comment in criticizing the US ban: “The current measures are not an acceptable long-term solution to whatever threat they are trying to mitigate.  Even in the short term it is difficult to understand their effectiveness.”

    Needless to say, there is a great need for a better and more effective solution. A balanced regulatory framework could be enacted for “extreme vetting” (taking cues from the President himself) of the passengers and their cabin luggage in all airports to detect laptop bombs or any other security threats posed by the terrorists. On the one hand, it would help to identify the terrorists before they get on board – and on the other, there would be extensive screening of laptops to mitigate risks of explosives in the plane.

    However, speculation is also rife about another motive behind the ban. According to many, under this pseudo protectionism measure, the Trump administration is actually staging a coup to harm certain international airlines from countries such as the UAE & Qatar. The claims of security risk could be just be to mask its nasty discriminatory actions against particular foreign airports and airlines.

    Cybersecurity Industry Master, Mitigator, Mentor and Practitioner urges the Public to not be fooled by “Cyber Marketing Scammers”

    AUSTRALIA – 8 May, 2017 – Self-proclaimed instant ‘Cyber Experts’ are the new ‘Cyber-scammers’. They bypass 20 years of multiple expert fields”, Cybersecurity expert Simon Smith warns the world. Buzz words: “Emerging innovations”, “Artificial Intelligence”, “Internet of Things”, “Neural Networks”, “Cognitive Computing”, “Cognitive Security”, “Augmented Cyber Reality”, “The Cloud”, “Cyber Neurons” are NOT new, innovative, and emerging relevant, realistic or related technologies.

    “All one needs to do is look on the internet, read a newspaper or listen to the news and hear outlandish stories about so-called ‘Cybersecurity solutions’ or seminars,” Mr. Smith, Cybersecurity Master with 21yrs IT expert practicing industry experience explains.

    “They are supposed to be fighting an industry of deception, yet their deception is the biggest Cyber-risk of all,” says Mr. Smith.

    “In fact the very people that write these articles are instantly making themselves known to those who are real experts, as risks to Cybersecurity. Almost all of the above words are either decades old, and have always existed,” said Mr. Smith. “The ‘Cloud’ is the Internet, and remote execution has existed ever since I was interested in programming 26 years ago. Simply via thin client application hosting, Citrix, VMWare and Remote Storage, these were part of the applications we made as avid Software Engineers when I started,” he said.

    “At 11 years old, and commercially at 18, with now 21 years of combined industry experience, it disturbs me to see the industry falling apart by phrases that are being adopted by not even software companies. The ‘Internet of Things’ is another abused word, as the internet was always connected to hardware devices I created, and never with ‘Cybersecurity problems’. It is a myth and sales bluff dreamt up by charlatans simply looking to cash in on what they ‘want to be an emerging innovative rush to market’. The reality is, they are causing the problem, not mitigating it,” Mr. Smith said logically.

    Some Company’s seminars coming up with ‘best practices’, ‘ideas’, and ‘products’ have absolutely no speakers with experience in Cybercrime, Cybersecurity or anything related. “They are destroying the industry. These amateurs are trying to jump up 20 years of stairs and look for a shortcut but it is a discipline of many professions, and they are the biggest Cybersecurity risk with their uneducated advice,” Mr. Smith said.

    Mr. Smith is a seasoned Software Engineering Master, Cybersecurity Trainer, Frontline Cyber Crisis Defender, Mentor, Expert Witness, Frontline Mitigation Expert, and Cyber Forensics Investigator. He is also a Computer Digital Forensics Expert with real industry experience in the entire sphere of security and software engineering with over 21 years of practicing industry experience, ISO Lead Information Systems Auditor Qualified, has completed 8 Department of Homeland Security (US) recognised courses, holds over 10 Graduate Certificates/Diploma’s in Australia and over a hundred Advanced Diploma’s and below, in multiple disciplines involving CISO, CCFE, CCP, ITSM, PMP, GCertITSM, GCertITS, MS, MC, Dip.SD, NW, SA, MCSD, PMP, and so much more.

    A full list is available on his LinkedIn profile: www.linkedin/in/simonsmithinvestigator

    “In a recent forum I saw somebody write the solution to a skills shortage. It was to ‘simply hire lay people’. I responded and said, would you like to have open heart surgery from a Nurse? It seems that the rush to market has already become more important than the traditional SDLC and testing. Companies would rather send a product to the shelves and have teenage ‘amateur hackers’ with no methodology maybe find something than proven methodology under the SDLC. It is no wonder they are hackable,” Mr. Smith said.

    “Ideologists jump on Wikipedia and look for the latest ‘buzz word’ and start marketing. I’ve seen them quote semi definitions such as ‘Cognitive computing technology‘ from Wikipedia. If they copy and pasted it properly, you would read at line one that ‘At present, there is no widely agreed upon definition for cognitive computing in either academia or industry,” says Mr. Smith.

    “What all these ridiculous words are referring to and the software they are purporting to describe merely replicate ‘Automated Machine Learning’, which I have, and so has many others, been programming over 21 years, and yes if done correctly can make some difference. There is nothing a computer can do that a human does not instruct it to do. It can do it faster, it can learn with methods we tell it how to, but at a risk that if we get it wrong – we make a big ‘fast’ mistake. The only exception to this is algorithms. It is still humanly possible to perform mathematics, and all these so-called ’emerging malware detection’ cognitive human replacements (even if they existed and did work) could do is spot a trend that could help a human spot a reality. However, that is still ‘Automated Machine Learning’,” stated Mr. Smith – who audits ‘IT Experts’ in court as an Expert Witness.

    He says, “However, if that was not enough ‘buzz words’, Mr. Smith looks beyond finds claims of Artificial Intelligence, and says “for Artificial Intelligence, we turn to both logic, science and definition. Firstly, what you think it means is impossible and documented as AI (Complete). What it does mean is also logically impossible to rely on and manage tasks such as reasoning, i.e. predicting actions of ‘prior consciousness’ that we humans are born with. In every other sense, it is ‘Machine Learning’. It is well documented that AI differs from Machine Learning because it requires ‘commonsense knowledge’similar to ‘prior consciousness’. By definition, commonsense knowledge “is impossible in general unless the machine is familiar with all the same concepts that an ordinary person is familiar with.”

    He then moves on to say, “Now, Pattern Recognition in its context is defined as a form of Machine Learning as it has to know by a human what constitutes a pattern. The definition of Pattern Recognition is “the assignment of a label to a given input value,” said Mr. Smith.

    Mr. Smith likens this deceptiveness similar to that he comes across when he encounters Cybercrime, those who are laughing at all of us due to our diversion of reality and ignorance. Mr. Smith, who caught a major Cyberscammer last week, part of a $30-40m crime syndicate, stated, “When I find real life Cyberscammers, Cyberstalkers and Cybercriminals I see real suicides, real cult kidnappings, real hacking, real businesses destroyed, real people facing jail, real child exploitation and real gunpoint horror stories. It is not a game, it is not funny to the victims, so my advice is to the ‘Cyber Marketing Scammers‘ to literally get out before people get hurt.”

    Finally, Mr. Smith covers the new ‘buzz word’ that the new breed of ‘Cyber Marketing Scammers’ are resorting to. This was the topic that caused Mr. Smith to warn the industry it is doomed if it doesn’t take a stance. They tend to use the word ‘Cognitive ability‘ and now ‘Neural Networks‘.

    Mr. Smith states, “The public should now know that there has only ever been ‘Automated Machine Learning’, but in this case assisted with a Mathematical Algorithm. Some mathematics trends can be predicted, some are impossible. Again, we turn to Wikipedia and it states, “Like other machine learning methods, neural networks have been used to solve a wide variety of tasks, like computer vision and speech recognition, that are difficult to solve using ordinary rule-based programming”. It is also worth mentioning that all these quotes date back to the 1980-90’s. When I say that I am talking about ‘IoT’, ‘Cloud’ and all so-called Emerging Innovations.

    What has changed to cause the increase in Cybercrime?

    “Absolutely nothing except laziness, market exploitation, a big rush to market and breaking of the SDLC/eliminating proper testing methodology & care. The writers of these articles and presenters of these seminars are causing a concern. Programmers and product developers need to start getting smarter and do their job and testing properly. Then, the marketers need to wait for a proper SDLC to be undertaken. There are no short rides to become a Cybersecurity expert. Spend 20 years and learn the professions, then you will inherently know the discipline,” Mr. Smith states.

    Disclaimer

    If the truth hurts, deal with it. It has to be a warning to the world from somebody who is on the frontline with expert experience. Not everybody are out to intentionally behave like this, but it is true and it is happening and Mr. Smith is offering this intelligence for no monetary gain. Decision makers (including Government) should do due diligence against those putting out these claims, products or events. Secondly, Cyber Mitigation and stopping insider threats and human mind hacking (social engineering) Mr. Smith points to, is the answer.

    He offers limited social engineer insider testing and contracts out. He engages as an Expert Witness, performs R&D and/or is looking for that next Cybercriminal. His services and time is in demand.

    He reminds readers that cyber-attacks based on software cover only 10% and the average Company knows about it 300 days after it has occurred. 90% he states is social engineering. You have to look from the inside,” Mr. Smith concludes.

    Motto – You cannot replace human excellence – you can assist it

    Remember, humans are the weakest link in any Cyberattack, Technology comes second!

    New lash glue is formulated entirely from natural and vegan ingredients which have properties beneficial to human skin and hair.

    By sticking to its mission of upending the makeup industry’s use of toxic chemicals in makeup formulas, True Glue is steadily altering the cosmetic landscape – one organic beauty product at a time. When the company was first launched in 2014, its flagship product the first all-natural eyelash adhesive. Since then, the company has continued to innovate and has added to its repertoire of always-natural makeup products. And most recently, True Glue has launched a product that is another very first of its kind: a salon grade lash extension glue.

    Designed for salon technicians to apply on clients who want beautiful, long-lasting lash extensions, this new lash glue is formulated entirely from natural and vegan ingredients which have properties beneficial to human skin and hair. And it’s also cruelty-free: True Glue adamantly refuses to use animals as testbeds for its beauty products.

    The launch of this product comes close on the heels of True Glue’s recent roll out of an organic liquid eyeliner, mascara and all-natural lip gloss line. “With the launch of this salon-grade lash adhesive, salons can now recommend an actually healthy, safe lash glue to their clients,” says Emily Lyons – the driven CEO and founder of the young-but-ever-expanding cosmetic company.

    Lash glues currently used by salons throughout the world are often filled with toxic chemicals – compounds like formaldehyde and cyanoacrylate which can damage your eyes and your overall health. In addition, lash glues found in most salons today are destructive to the environment – precisely because of the extensive use of synthetic chemicals in these glues.

    On the other hand, True Glue’s new lash extension adhesive is eco-friendly – even the packaging is biodegradable. Featuring long-lasting holding power – up to 5 weeks – the adhesive’s ingredients include candelilla wax, olive oil, and corn starch.

    True Glue’s Salon Grade Lash Extensions Adhesive is now available for order from the company’s official website: www.true-glue.com

    Ottawa, Ont – Leading home improvement company The Screen Mobile is delighted to announce that they have acquired exclusive rights to sell the Clearview Retractable Screen Door in Canada. This Clearview Screen Door is the only screen door that comes with a patented speed reducer as standard.

    One of the biggest potential problems of retractable screen doors is the inherent safety risk they present. When a retractable door opens the mechanism can be so powerful that it can easily trap fingers. The patented technology of the Clearview Screen Door means that the door opens at a much slower rate, with the intention of preventing those sort of accidents from occurring.

    Although safety is the number one selling point of the system, the doors are stunningly designed and provide a high-quality finish and addition to any property. Quick and easy to install they are the perfect choice for anyone in the market for a retractable screen door, particularly those with small children.

    “Retractable screen doors are an excellent addition to any home,” said Jim Stroud of The Screen Mobile. “However, the speed and force with which other products on the market open, means that there is a significant risk of injury to small children. We are delighted to have gained the exclusive rights to the Clearview Retractable Screen Door, and we know the product is going to be a runaway success. However, perhaps the most important thing is that the number of injuries suffered as a result of retractable doors will be drastically reduced.”

    The Screen Mobile is a window and door screen installation and repair service based in Ottawa Ontario. They have been in business since 1996, and have over forty years of experience in the door and window industry. All of their vehicles are fully equipped meaning that in most cases any repairs required can be done immediately on the first visit. If you are in the market for a new retractable door or repair, then visit their website at thescreenmobile.ca for more details.

    On Wednesday, 14th December, 2016. MINIEYE, a Chinese on-broad visual perception solution provider, held a “KEEP A MINIEYE ON YOU” conference in Beijing. During the conference, CEO Dr. Guoqing Liu, announced the launch of MINlEYE’s first-generation ADAS (Advanced Drivers Assistance System) aftermarket product, which has achieved success in technical benchmarking with global industry leader, Mobileye.

    “The successful benchmarking will put an end to Mobileye’s monopoly on ADAS market,” Dr. Liu said.

    To help driver better understand the road,MINIEYE emerged. With these advanced vision algorithms independently developed by MINIEYE, MINlEYE’s on-broad mono camera can scan road around and accurately identify a variety of traffic objects, including vehicles, lanes, pedestrians, traffic lights and traffic signs. By analyzing the identified objects, MINIEYE is able to effectively percept rear-end collision, lane departure, pedestrian collision, overspeed and other driving risks,and alert the drive to avoid accidents. During the conference,Dr. Liu showed their first generation aftermarket product, with functions including Headway Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Virtual Bumper and Stop & Go. He also revealed this new product is currently mass produced.

    Back to 2013, when MINlEYE’s founding team started the business, there were few people having heard about ADAS in China. In the meantime, Mobileye, an Israeli technology company founded in 1999,has begun its long journey of development into a global leader. So for MINIEYE,Mobileye is considered as an example to learn from.


    MINIEYE(right)has the advantage of detecting cars at night over Mobileye.

    Since 2014,MINIEYE has constantly conducted road test and accumulated local data. In November,2016,MINIEYE decided to begin the benchmarking compared to Mobileye,by recording both MINIEYE and Mobileye’s products that were installed in the same car.

    In Nov, 2016,MINIEYE sent out two vehicles for road test: one departed from MINlEYE’s headquarters in Shenzhen; and the other one departed from Nanjing R&D center. Two testing vehicles have gone through 16 provinces, running over 8909 kilometers, collecting data under different weather and lighting conditions, from cities widely distributed in North China (Harbin), West China (Yunnan) and South China. Dr. Liu stated that MINIEYE knew China better, because it focused on localization from algorithm development, data collection to product design, and has gradually established models which are more suitable for road conditions in China. “When it comes to the strange-looking vehicles, which are unique in China, MINIEYE has better performance than Mobileye.”

    This benchmarking road test focused on four primary functions of MINIEYE ADAS products, including Headway Monitoring (HWM), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Virtual Bumper (VB). Since there is no common standard for benchmarking, MINIEYE adopted rather strict standards to decide whether the outcome should be considered as successful: regarding to FCW, LDW and VB, it required MINIEYE to have a False Positive alarm less than 0.5 times per 100 kilometers, while keeping a high alarm rate that is more than Mobileye’s 95%; regarding to HWM, it required MINIEYE to coincided with Mobileye (that means no more than one unit difference of absolute TTC) under at least 95% of times.

    “The result of benchmarking is quite successful,” Dr. Liu stated. “Compared to Mobileye, MINlEYE’s FCW alarm rate achieves Mobileye’s 95.2%, LDW alarm rate is 100.9%, and VB alarm rate is 97.1%. The benchmarking rate of HWM between MINIEYE and Mobileye is up to 96%.”

    Dr. Liu mentioned, even though MINIEYE didn’t achieved a 100% coincidence rate with Mobileye,there was no doubt that both products were at the same technical level. “It should be regarded as a breakthrough in China’s ADAS domain,especially when MINIEYE has been proven to have a better performance for China’s unique local traffic scenarios.”

    Founded in 2013, MINIEYE devotes itself to leading change in auto industry, by utilizing cutting-edge computer vision technology and providing visual perception system for vehicles. Its predecessor was a development project on Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) funded by the MDA of Singapore government. In order to make driving safer, MINIEYE is continuously striving to maintain a high-level of innovation, and R&D excellence.

    As the field of autonomous vehicles rises, besides traditional automakers, many players outside the auto industry are trying to tap into this field. With the goal of providing common terminology for automated driving, SAE International’ delivers a harmonized classification system with 6 levels. According to this classification system, some Internet giants such as Google or Baidu directly went for the Level 5, where the full automation occurs.

    But on the contrary, MINIEYE chooses to march on full automation step by step from level 1,and starts with ADAS safety applications. Dr. Liu believed, before the era of full automation arrives, driver assistance applications, especially safety-related applications, would be the core concern of consumers. According to the China’s Department of Health, the number of death caused by car accidents increases every year. Merely in 2012, the number is approaching 170,000,which is almost twice as much as that of ten years ago. The number provided by insurance industry is even higher. Recent studies show that 89% of traffic accident caused by drivers’ own mistakes ascribes to drivers’ false perceptions. That means if it is possible to alert up the drivers in advance, a large proportion of car accidents could be prevented.

    LONDON, RIYADH – 09 May, 2017 – John Canady, CEO of the National Philanthropic Trust UK (NPT-UK) spoke on “Global Trends in Philanthropy” at the Arab Foundations Forum event hosted by the King Khaled Foundation, in Riyadh on May 2. Mr. Canady also joined the panel discussion with HRH Princess Banderi Al Faisal, CEO of the King Khaled Foundation, and Ms. Clare Woodcraft, CEO of the Emirates Foundation.

    John Canady, CEO of NPT-UK said: “It was an honour to address the members of the Arab Foundations Forum and support their work to promote strategic philanthropy in the Arab region.  Donor-advised funds have long been popular in the US and the UK where donors value the convenient and flexibility of this type of charitable giving vehicle. Donor-advised funds are now also becoming popular with philanthropists in the Middle East who use donor-advised funds to manage their global philanthropy.”

    The presentation highlighted five trends in global philanthropy.

    Structured philanthropy is on the rise: Philanthropists are increasingly using formalised structures, such as donor-advised funds, to plan and execute their philanthropy.  Their goal is to be more strategic and achieve greater impact over time.

    Philanthropy as risk capital:  Philanthropic capital is unique. Because philanthropic money is not accountable to shareholders (like businesses) or voters (like politicians), private philanthropy can experiment and take risks – sort of like venture capital – to tackle big challenges and find new solutions.

    Philanthropy by collaboration: There is a rise in collaborative giving, where donors aggregate or pool their capital to focus on specific goals.  They share best practices, eliminate duplication, and use the initiative to motivate other donors to join in.   

    Philanthropy focused on root causes: While there will always be a need to alleviate the suffering of those in immediate need, many global philanthropists are also focusing on tackling root causes of problems versus treating the symptoms.

    Philanthropy driving impact investing: Many global philanthropists are re-visiting the conventional wisdom on endowment management. They are allocating a portion of their endowment capital to impact investing, where an investment achieves both financial and measurable social returns.

    New York – 09 May, 2017 – The goal of China’s One Belt One Road Initiative (OBOR) is to link China to the rest of the world by two great arcs of international trade – a land-based ‘belt’ and a maritime ‘road’ stretching west to Europe and Africa and south to Southeast Asia and Australia.

    Estimates of the total investment involved range between $US1.4 trillion and $US6 trillion, depending on which projects are included and the timescale used.

    At a time of increasingly isolationist political thinking in the West, China’s massive commitment to broadening and deepening its international ties represents a huge opportunity to countries globally.

    The development of ports, logistics hubs and other infrastructure across 60 countries is central to the OBOR, and work on joint projects with China is already underway in many partner nations.

    Beijing-backed financial institutions such as the New Development Bank, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and The Silk Road Fund have a combined financial firepower of $US240 billion ready to commit to OBOR projects, but long-term capital requirements will be far higher.

    The vast initiative will run over several generations and its sheer scale and ambition will impact across global initiatives, such as shifting to a lower carbon economy.

    According to Worldwide Funding Corp Head of Research, Anders Phillippe, “Joint projects could bring benefits to US companies and Worldwide Funding Corp is already focused on the possibilities.” Take for example General Electric’s operations in Pakistan, orders are more than $1 billion today, compared with less than $100 million five years ago.

    According to Phillippe, China hopes to achieve several goals with the OBOR. He added, “China has an excess capacity issue. Global trade isn’t strong enough to absorb all the products China is producing. One Belt One Road is a way for China to create new routes to get its products into its major markets such as America which is its top export destination. At the same time, it allows for greater infrastructure investment as well, connecting up the interior regions of China and expanding economic activity inland – up until now, most growth has tended to be towards the eastern seaboard. But it’s not just limited to China. It extends to anywhere that can allow more connectivity into China or out.

    “For America, it offers potential growth opportunities, particularly for American companies that are able to get work tied into any infrastructure projects. Stronger regional trade routes and economies will have a self-reinforcing positive effect on Chinese economy and the world for decades to come. From an American perspective, I can only see a benefit,” says Phillippe.

    Made with the rarest, most exquisite, and pure ingredients.
    We take great pride in knowing Lui & Lei has been specially formulated and patented by Korea’s leading manufacturer Hanbul Cosmetics. Made with unparalleled formulas, we truly believe Lui & Lei is one of a kind.

    It’s Your Time To Shine

    Lui & Lei is a new cosmetic brand that was specially formulated and patented by Korea’s top cosmetic manufacturing company, Hanbul Cosmetics.

    First launched in January 2017, Lui & Lei has introduced a variety of lines that fits all life stages. The current lineup includes: Diana Gen and Basics. Lui & Lei’s anti-aging line, Diana Gen, features two collections – the Prestige and VVIP. The Prestige Collection was researched and developed over a span of two years and features a patented formula of the Black Royal Fish mucous (gently removing the regenerative outer secretion), White Gold Caviar extract, and White Truffle extract. These unique creams are also packaged in exclusive diamond-shaped containers. The VVIP Collection is the key to reversing time for ageless skin. It is made with IBR-Dormin, and this patented formula slows down cell proliferation and increases Collagen I production by 128% over a 15 day period. But for those without anti-aging needs, the Basics Line includes a full home-care set, with the Moisture Brightening Collection, Men’s Collection, and Red Collection.

    Lui & Lei may have been introduced in January, but has rapidly expanded internationally. Distributorship has begun in Asia and North and South America. This rapid expansion is largely due to Lui & Lei’s parent company, Hanbul Cosmetics. Hanbul’s renowned reputation within the cosmetic industry has been the driving force behind Lui & Lei’s much anticipated launch. Hanbul has been in business for nearly 30 years and is currently highly regarded as the parent company of It’s Skin, with whom they just announced a merger with. Hanbul’s research and development of Korean cosmetics is unparalleled, shown by their constant output of highly established OEM brands, such as Do&Be, Escada, and It’s Skin.

    Unlike other manufacturers, Hanbul has invested in an in-house lab to research, formulate and produce Lui & Lei products. All products of Lui & Lei have been carefully formulated and perfected; they are free of animal cruelty, parabens, and sulfates. Lui & Lei is dedicated to giving you the youthful and radiant skin you have always dreamed of.

    SANTA CRUZ,CA – 5/10/2017 — A NASA JPL employee, Dr. Douglas A. O’ Handley, informed us that not only is there life on Mars, but there’s also dinosaurs still living on there.

    When Dr. Douglas A. O’ Handley told us that there’s Life on Mars while we were standing in his backyard, we had no idea that large primordial animals would be there. Initially he mentioned that we could find insects and water on Mars, but the evidence shows we found a small dinosaur with a unique set of prehensile hands; four of them to be precise. It possesses a phenotype like a large lizard with a stegosaurus fin and a platypus tail. Its eyes are symmetrical in shape and have no visible pupils, while its visual acuity must be vast due to the size. It’s big black right eye can clearly be seen on our website Mars Life HD even with our watermark in place. Having an elongated bill with nostrils close to its eyes will allow it to breathe while being almost completely submerged. Wide, small footed, and three-toed, it’s like most smaller bipedal dinosaurs that were here on Earth.

    Paleontologists have been digging on Earth since the beginning of time and they still don’t know where the fin and the bipedal stance originated. Obviously, our findings, which are clearly evident in our photographs, answer this longstanding quandary. Leading with an unprecedented find on Mars, we also can determine that the Life denotes intelligence, by slightly turning and lowering its head to the left while the rover photographs it. 

    It seems Darwin’s theory of evolution, which has been largely undisputed, requires a NASA scientist and a rover, things that weren’t afforded to him during his lifetime. Ultimately his theory will have to expand to make room in the evolution of Interplanetary Science and Life on Earth. 

    This picture is currently on sale in our membership area for $149.99. We will also feature this new find of a Small Dinosaur Standing in the Field at our Origins of Interplanetary Science and Life on Mars Symposium on June 8th at The Rio Theatre located in Santa Cruz, CA. 

    We’d like to extend a special invitation to Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson, Dr. Stephen Hawking, and the deans of science and department chairs at the following institutions:  Oxford University, Stanford University, University of California at Berkeley, Harvard University, Yale University, Brown University, University of Las Vegas, University of Iowa, Cal-tech, George Washington University, University of Michigan, Arizona State University, University California at Santa Cruz, and University of Naples.

    Extensive studies by various institutes prove that carpets do not contribute or cause allergies or asthma if they are cared for properly. Steele Carpet Calgary makes carpeting of any type safe using ‘green’ solutions.

    Calgary – 10 May, 2017 – The popular myth about carpets causing asthma and allergies has been well and truly busted. Dr. Vivienne Mahon (PhD, Airmid Healthgroup, Dublin) announced that there is no definitive scientific proof to the idea that carpeting has an adverse effect on people suffering from these conditions.

    Her claims are supported by research from a variety of institutes across the world, including an 18-nation study that included over 20,000 people. The scientists state that properly cleaned and well-maintained carpets can, in fact, improve the condition of asthma patients. Steele Carpet Calgary is a company dedicated to doing exactly that by effectively cleaning all types of residential and commercial carpeting and upholstery.

    On their brand new Calgary website, http://www.steelecarpetcalgary.com/, the team of Steele Carpet Calgary explains how exactly they manage to ensure superior quality of cleaning. To ensure their services are 100% safe, the company utilizes a combination of advanced equipment and ‘green’ non-allergenic solutions.

    How Can Carpeting Help Against Allergy/Asthma?

    In order to understand the truth behind the effect of carpeting in allergies or asthma, one has to consider what causes these problems. Dust and microscopic particles of allergens (pollen or dust mites) either cause or aggravate these conditions.

    The concept behind the idea that carpeting worsens the situations stems from the belief that those particles are accumulated in the fibers. The high concentration of potential ‘triggers’ confined to a single room is the reason why carpets are ‘bad’.

    However, a study commissioned by the German Allergy and Asthma Society shows that the level of dust and particle accumulation within rooms with smooth flooring is actually higher. The reason for this is that carpets actually act as filters that ‘trap’ problematic particles.

    Therefore, carpeting can act as an aid for people suffering from allergies and asthma by reducing the concentration of potential ‘triggers’ in the air within their homes. In fact, several statistic studies show that the reduction in the use of carpets correlates with the increase of allergy occurrences in the nation.

    However, there is some truth to carpets being able to contribute to asthma attacks. This can happen if the contamination of fibers becomes too much. Regular cleaning can effectively prevent this problem and turn a carpet into a fibrous filter capable of protecting the owner’s health.

    SteeleCarpetCalgary.com is a licensed Calgary carpet cleaning service with years of experience and professional training to handle any type of contamination.

    With Chinese independent travel growing increasingly prevalent and visa procedures becoming easily accessible in 2017, independent outbound travelers from China has witnessed a continued rise in frequency and popularity. Skyscanner big data on independent outbound travel show that the number of searches during one of the public holidays May Day holiday (Three day-off from April 29th to May 1st) in China exceeded one million times, an annual increase of 25%.

    The peak period for outbound travel falls on April 28-29, while off-peak travel during rearranged holidays has enjoyed increasing popularity with tourists. Based on the big data on independent outbound travel, Skyscanner identifies the “most attractive” destinations as well as the “most eye-catching” departure cities, and reminds independent outbound tourists to pay attention to changes in airfares and to book their tickets ahead of another Chinese public, which is Dragon Boat Festival (Three day-off from May 28th to May 30th).

     

    Short-distance outbound travel remains popular

    The May Day holiday season has become the most popular holiday season with Chinese, overtaking the Qingming Festival (Three day-off from April 2nd to April 4th) in 2017. For domestic tourists, the most popular outbound destinations during May Day holiday include Thailand, Japan and the US. Tourists with these three countries as their destinations account for one-third of all the outbound travelers. Furthermore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Australia, Singapore, Canada and Vietnam have been ranked among the top ten outbound destinations.

    A closer look reveals that Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore continue to secure their presence among the top ten outbound destinations; The US is ranked third, thanks to its abundant and diversified travel resources; Canada makes its debut on this list and enjoyed the most obvious increase during the May Day holiday, up 42% annually. More tourists choose to visit US and Canada, implying an increase in the number of travelers who prefer long-distance trips.

    Visa on arrival make last minute travel decisions possible

    More countries are offering visa on arrival as well as visa exemption policies for Chinese tourists, giving independent travelers more freedom in choosing their destinations. United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Serbia have witnessed visible growth compared with the search rate during the same period in the previous year, and the United Arab Emirates even posted an increase of 49%. Morocco benefits most from the new visa policy, from receiving little attention last year 766% increase in 2017.

    With the introduction of the new visa policy, Serbia’s search rate skyrocketed significantly, up 700% annually. As Chinese citizens’ passports wield greater command, outbound travel has become more convenient, leading to a greater willingness for outbound travel. As a result, Chinese citizens have more outbound destinations at their disposal. Skyscanner also reminds all outbound tourists that they can save considerably on travel expenses by paying attention to changes in airfares and book in advance.

    China’s tier-1 and tier 2 cities are the main sources of outbound tourists

    For the popular departure cities in China, Skyscanner’s big data on searches for outbound air tickets indicate that Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou are ranked the top three during the May Day holiday in 2017. Specifically, over 51% outbound tourists come from three cities. In terms of tier-2 cities, Chongqing, Chengdu and Nanjing revealed impressive results. Nanjing reported an annual growth of 27%, far above runner-up Chengdu, which saw an increase of 9%. The number of flights departing from Nanjing Lukou International Airport, as the part of its summer and autumn flight plan, increased by some 19.5% compared with the spring and winter flight plan.

    In addition, there are more than ten new international routes to Phuket Island, Kuala Lumpur and London, and these flights even offer inexpensive airfares. The increase in flights and routes are direct contributors to the growing number of searches for independent outbound travel and the greater willingness for such travel. Furthermore, after attaining its GDP goal of over one trillion yuan in 2016, Nanjing’s vigorous economic growth also became one of the major driving forces behind the expanding body of outbound tourists.

    Skyscanner’s smart functions satisfy your requirement of economical, independent outbound trip With the holidays approaching, tourists will soon find it difficult to make the right decision when it comes to their destinations. If you use the destination-free search functions in Skyscanner, you can easily find locations providing visas on arrival and visa exemptions. With Skyscanner’s travel fare aggregator, you can search for an entire month’s worth of airline ticket information to find a trip that suits your budget.

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – 11 May, 2017 –

    “When I heard about The People Walker, I knew the story would be fun to tell and a bit quirky. But it wasn’t until I met Chuck, this big, hairy, sweet guy, that I realized he was also a bit of a superhero.” – Stephanie Abrams, Circa

    “Can technology cure the loneliness epidemic that it spurred? Accidental entrepreneur Chuck McCarthy [aka The People Walker] may have stumbled upon the answer.” – Entrepreneur.com

    Check out the Webby announcement here: http://webbyawards.com/winners/2017/film-video/general-film/weird/

    Al Arabiya Today

    Los Angeles-based entrepreneur Chuck McCarthy, founder of The People Walker™, is now the subject of award-winning video “The People Walker,” from Circa. The video, reported and produced by Stephanie Abrams and edited by Taylor Holland, had already received over 30 million views before winning both The Webby and People’s Voice Awards in The Webby Awards “Weird” category, making this a triple win for Circa’s assigning editor Dan Milano, managing editor Rob Dixter, and chief operating officer John Solomon.

    “This award win is almost like icing on the ‘cakewalk’ for The People Walker. Sorry about the terrible play on words or pun or whatever that was,” says founder Chuck McCarthy, who has been the subject of constant media attention since the Circa video hit in September 2016. McCarthy has been profiled by a vastly diverse array of media outlets such as The Guardian, Reader’s Digest and People. He has appeared on nationally and internationally syndicated news programs such as Michaela, Galileo, The Doctors, Today Australia and Al Arabiya Today. “When I started The People Walker, advertising with fliers on telephone poles was all I could afford,” McCarthy says. “After the Circa video, the kind of media attention this has gotten is beyond my wildest dreams. It’s like walking on sunshine. Wow.”

    Launched in early 2016, The People Walker is a motivational exercise companion service, which offers both conversation and companionship along with exercise in the form of walking. Confidential one-on-one conversation coupled with low impact cardio are the major features of the service. “I’m not a therapist or a personal trainer, but talking about problems and knowing someone is listening, and good old fashioned exercise are two things that always make me feel better, so I’m just trying to facilitate that for others,” McCarthy says. “And I enjoy doing it. It might not always be a walk in the park, but it’s always a walk somewhere.”

    The People Walker is now moving toward expansion as a mobile phone app. McCarthy has partnered with entrepreneur and Los Angeles native Aryan Sarbaz to expand the service and connect people. “Ever since I saw the kind of positive feedback the Circa video generated, I’ve been working on building an app, but it’s a long journey, and you have to take it one step at a time,” McCarthy says. “Luckily, I met Ary, and now I have a walking partner on the path to success.”

    Having just launched a new website, ThePeopleWalker.com, with streamlined booking coming soon, momentum is building and a mobile app will be Beta testing soon. “We are picking up speed, and are getting closer and closer to getting an app on the market, but a new business is like a wet pool deck—dangerous. You can’t run. You have to walk,” McCarthy says. “But we’re walking pretty fast now, like that kid who’s really testing the lifeguard by walking as fast as humanly possible.”

    The People Walker, Chuck McCarthy will be attending the 21st annual Webby Awards on May 15, 2017 in NY, NY.

    CHICAGO, IL – 11 May, 2017 – “This Machine Kills Fascists”. Never one to withhold his opinion, Chicago based Reggae artist MC ZULU is known for the addition of controversial symbolism to his work. In the case of his latest EP “War Machine” the poignant yet comedic expression, borrowed from the guitar of anti-war Folk hero Woody Guthrie, punctuates the ending.

    War Machine combines MC ZULU’s signature, gruff vocal style with the aural havoc wreaked by Moscow producer Chuck Upbeat. Lyrically it places MC ZULU as both antagonist and protagonist. The difference is expressed with alternating intensity. “It’s important to show both sides of the present argument” he says, referencing some of the more unbridled political discussions currently taking place. “I don’t tell people what to think, but I feel compelled to balance their perspectives.”

    Chuck Upbeat is gaining a following throughout Europe and Asia for his own worldly perspective. He has released material via the popular Portuguese label Enchufada, and partnered with China’s Howie Lee to help bring about the “Oriental Bass” sound.

    Heavily influenced by Reggae/Dancehall techniques, many of music’s newest genres are driven by lower frequencies and drums. The innovative aspect reveals itself when producers around the world include their own indigenous instrumentation. These experiments can produce truly groundbreaking results. This trend is known as “Global Bass” and has been meticulously detailed on blogs like Generation Bass and Mad Decent throughout the years.

    MC ZULU has helped to establish this paradigm working with numerous Global Bass collaborators. Their underground network is comprised of musicians and visual artists from almost every country. While they may not make Reggae in the strictest sense, they often create within the post-Dancehall musical sphere and commonly include Reggae acappellas. This network’s influence over the mainstream is difficult to ignore. MC ZULU refers to his sonic experiments as “Electro Reggae”. War Machine is slated for release on the Electro Reggae label May 30 2017.

    With over N2.5 Billion Naira worth of discounts provided by Emilinks, all homeowners can now afford to transform their home.

    One of the biggest ever sales in Nigerian history is now taking place, creating excitement among homeowners, furnishing companies, and young entrepreneurs. The big discount sale has been launched by Emilinks, who provide quality furnishing items including doors, kitchens, and wardrobes.

     

    The discounts being offered have not only caused excitement in Nigeria, but they have also gained the attention of those living outside of the country including the USA, and the UK. With so much attention to the 2.5 Billion naira discounts, worldwide media have been reporting on the excitement, which means those living in Nigeria need to hurry if they want to grab themselves a bargain.

    The Managing Director of Emilinks Limited Mr Solomon Nwadiogbu said: “We are so excited by our sale where we have slashed prices on quality products by up to 65 percent. This is the perfect time for those looking to remodel their home to do so for a lot less.”

    Nigeria has never seen prices so low for quality home improvement products. It is no wonder people have become so excited when the company has advertised 900mm x 2.1m hand-finished wooden doors for between N150,000 and N120,000, and one of the most popular doors that is used in new homes by quality builders has gone down from N110,000 to just N60,000.

    Other prices include:

    The Economic Flush Door down from N60,000 to N40,000

    50% off made-in-Italy fire-rated doors, N250,000.

    Historic Armour Door normally valued at N3m; now is only N1.5m.

    All steel security doors—non-corroding and non-rusting—that used to be sold at 370,000 per unit are now available at N200,000 each.

    “Every door comes complete with frames, lock, cylinder, handles, and keys”, explained a spokesman for Emilinks

    Due to the huge sale, the big warehouse which was full of quality products is now quickly becoming empty, which means according to a spokesman for the company, those looking for a great offer need to act quickly.

    Emilinks have a great reputation for their great prices, and that is why builders, furnishing companies, and entrepreneurs turn to them when they want quality products. However, nobody expected the company to launch such a huge sale, providing some of the best products for the home in and out of Nigeria at unbeatable prices.

    Your eyes are the most important part of your body and therefore, you need to protect them from unnecessary exposure to blue light. 

    http://wei-soft.com/download/pr/light1.jpg

    How Does Blue Light Affect the Eyes?

    Almost all visible blue light passes through the cornea and lens and reaches the retina. This light may affect vision and could prematurely age the eyes. Early research shows that too much exposure to blue light could lead to:

    Eyestrain: Blue light from computer screens and lamp can decrease contrast leading to eyestrain. Symptoms of eyestrain include sore or irritated eyes and difficulty focusing. 

    Retina damage: Studies suggest that continued exposure to blue light over time could lead to damaged retinal cells. This can cause vision problems like age-related macular degeneration. 

    What Can You Do to Protect Your Eyes from Blue Light?

    If constant exposure to blue light from desk lamp, smart phones, tablets, and computer screens is an issue, there are a few ways to decrease exposure to blue light: 

    Screen time: Try to decrease the amount of time spent in front of these screens and/or take frequent breaks to give your eyes a rest. 

    Filters: Screen filters are available for smart phones, tablets, and computer screens. They decrease the amount of blue light given off from these devices that could reach the retina in our eyes. 

    Eye care desk lamp: such as anti-glare, flicker free, adjustable color temperature, dimmable, low blue light and soft nature light. 

    Anti-reflective lenses: Anti-reflective lenses reduce glare and increase contrast and also block blue light from the sun and digital devices. 

    Intraocular lens (IOL): After cataract surgery, the cloudy lens will be replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). The lens naturally protects the eye from almost all ultraviolet light and some blue light. There are different types of IOL that can protect the eye and retina from blue light. 

    Talk to an eye care professional about options about ways to protect your family and your eyes from blue light. 

    If you are using desk lamps for any type of desk work, you must choose a lamp that assures optimal eye health.
