There are many ways to steal your password. No matter who you are. Do you have a college degree? Are you a high-level executive? Do you feel pretty smart when it comes to computers? You’re in luck: you will definitely have your password stolen. That’s because hackers use your confidence against you. As long as you feel thoroughly aware of all risks, you are most at risk. Nobody is immune from hacking. Nobody.
Every year I like to take a glance at the learning resources available free or at a low-cost.
It’s easier than ever to learn how to do something. In the first place, the abundance of teaching websites or videos is mind-numbing. For example, you can now choose from about six websites that can teach you to code. In addition to coding websites, there are sites that teach foreign languages. Although Home Ec was a disaster in High School, you could revitalize your crafting career with lessons you learned off Reddit.
In the event that you got stuck, who could you turn to if you wanted to check a code you wrote? Until now, how could you be sure that what you were translating would be well understood by your audience? As long as you have a reliable connection to the internet, the number of places to ask questions and expect a high-quality answer is well organized and easy to use. However, you need to have a heap of digital literacy to understand the difference between an expert and a charlatan.
In fact, digital literacy is key to evaluating all kinds of information on the internet.

Libraries Still Exist by Caitlin Moran (excerpt)
When you’re a child, if your home is perhaps unhappy or else just cramped or dull, and you are too poor for the mall to hold any appeal for you, there is a third, magical space you can go to on a rainy day: the library. A place where you can go without a penny in your pocket and be given a room full of worlds. For each book is a doorway you can walk through into another land. There are a million people, from across the world and through time, who are sitting on those shelves, dying to tell their stories and become your friend. It is a place where you will be valued not for what you wear or how you look, but for how many words you have collected and stored in your head (corybantic, uxorious, shagreen, mimosa). Most important, it is a place where you can just sit on a chair and read all the rude bits from Judy Blume books. And we invented these facilities! We made them happen. How cool is that? This humanity’s greatest achievement.

But first, these are places where you will lose money:
Verizon Buys Yahoo! What does it mean?
Verizon has announced that it will buy Yahoo!’s internet business for $4.83 billion dollars in cash. Yahoo, one of the oldest web companies, will now give up the business core that made it famous. Created by two students at Stanford University in January of 1994, Yahoo was a guide to help navigate the internet.
At Yahoo’s IPO, the stock was valued at $13. At the height of the dot-com bubble, it reached $118.75 per share. In 2008, Yahoo rejected an offer to be bought by Microsoft for 45 billion dollars in 2008. While Yahoo has not sold off its other businesses such as Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, it’s a significant loss for anyone who hoped to see Yahoo recover from its fall as an internet leader. The hope from shareholders is that by keeping Yahoo’s other businesses, it’s share price will increase, increasing its valuation.
