Our fragile neighbours

In China, Emerging markets, India, Indonesia, Malaysia on 18/08/2018 at 11:31 am

Think the woes in Turkey are irrelevant to us? Far away Muslim country.

Well look at this table https://fingfx.thomsonreuters.com/gfx/breakingviews/1/951/1238/index.html

If Turkey goes, M’sia (6th with Turkey as Number 1) and Indonesia (8th) are likely to get into trouble.

As could Thailand (15th), India (10th), China (12th) and S Korea (14th)

Napoleon’s “Luck” and Trump the slave-owner

“I know he’s a good general, but is he lucky?”

Napoléon Bonaparte

Cardinal Mazarin, chief minister of France, 1642-61, said the question to ask of a general is not, “Est-il habile?” Is he skilful? but “Est-il heureux?” Is he lucky?

Well Hilary certainly is not lucky.

If she had won, she’d have inherited a good economy. So good that

Walmart’s chief executive, said: “Customers tell us that they feel better about the current health of the US economy as well as their personal finances. They’re more confident about their employment opportunities.”

Mr McMillon’s comments echoed those from other retail sector bosses that have posted decent figures in recent days.

Instead the Donald inherited the labours of a black man and his team.

The economy was going to be great guns and the tax cuts and deregulation is turbo charging making it in danger of overheating. The Democrats will inherit a bad economy, again.

The Republicans are lucky again.

No wonder the US progressives are so angry. Maybe they should start believing in a Christian God again?

 

Memo to Paper General heading Computer Security Agency

In Internet, S'pore Inc on 17/08/2018 at 11:19 am

From a Mr Happy

I avoid Intel and use AMD in my systems. I have found that the Ryzen processor family offers great performance with out the power consumption or heat output of its predecessors.

Putting my CTO hat on for a moment, in reality there are always holes in the security of both software and  hardware or exploits previously not considered. So keep things patched, keep security layers tight, stay on top the available information and do not get complacent because at that point you assume you are secure then you become vulnerable. It comes under two headings, security and managing your IT estate, if you fail to maintain your investment you will fall behind and be vulnerable. If you or your organisation does not have the knowledge get a professional in to conduct an audit and security sweep. Organisations are facing far more security vulnerabilities and threats than at any previous point in the technology revolution and many organisations are not managing it correctly.
