Benefits of Technology

The mind of technology is breeding grounds for new inventions, while the benefits with technology serve to make life so much more interesting than, say a hundred years ago. I have to admit sometimes I wonder if it’s more enjoyable.

What would we do in today’s society without the benefits that technology provides? A year or so ago I stopped at a yard sale. Among the various things for sale, there were a few science fiction books a man was selling, claiming he was selling them for his son.

As I was paying for the books a statement made by the man at first angered me. Then a feeling of pity replaced my rising anger. Obviously, this man had little tact and was no salesman. Mostly I believe I felt sorriest for his son.

He said he wondered what kind of mind would read such trash. One thing for sure, if we all had such closed minds like this man’s, we would still be in the horse and buggy days. Like the man said, none are as blind as he that refuses to see.

The state of imagination, combined with a hunger to explore, has sent men to the depth of the seas, and then raised him to the height of the stars. An ability to imagine something combined with the hunger to turn that “Idea” into a reality this is what drives the science of technology.

Technology can be a double-edged sword, with the convenience and ease of life that they help provide. As in most things, you have to take the good with the bad. Unfortunately, intelligence and imagination do not run only to those with good intentions.

The mind of the thief that would steal from you, as well as the vicious malcontents that design malware to do harm, these to take advantage of technology and turn it to the detriment of you and your property.

As a matter of fact the benefits of technology are all around us, from waking in the morning, to making a phone call, driving your car, or logging on to your computer. I can find few things where technology does not benefit in one means or another.

Even life has been extended due to the benefits of medical science and technology. The breakthroughs in medical equipment and technique alone in the last fifty years surpass those of a thousand preceding years.

As in the way of things, one man throws the ball as far as he can, then others pick it up and run with it as far as they can, then passing it on to others, who do the same until the goal is achieved. To that end, I say thank God for dreamers.

HOW FIDGET SPINNERS BROKE THE INTERNET

postFidget spinners came to popularity in early 2017 as a soothing, therapeutic toy that could help children and adults alike battle boredom and keep focused.

 

Comprised of a ball bearing encased in plastic, metal, or another material, the user is able to spin the toy between their fingers. Studies show that users of these toys are more focused, more relaxed, and less stressed. The same studies show that the toy can help those suffering from Dyslexia, ADHD, and Autism focus during crucial moments at work or in the classroom.

 

In early 2017, fidget spinners nearly broke the internet as they were searched more than Justin Bieber on Google. Since their introduction, several celebrities and YouTube personalities have made it their mission to teach their followers how to make the toy.

A STEP TOWARDS SECURE INDUSTRY: KASPERSKY LAB AND NORNICKEL SIGN COLLABORATION AGREEMENT

0ihO6PBP759x500Kaspersky Lab and the Nornickel group of companies have agreed to cooperate in the sphere of information security. The partnership is aimed at creating a comprehensive protection system for corporate and industrial networks, as well as integrating cutting edge technologies to combat cyberthreats and increase the overall security level of one of the world’s largest mining and metallurgical companies.

Intruders are now targeting industrial environments and critical infrastructures increasingly more frequently. According to Kaspersky Lab’s ICS CERT, for the most recent three summer months, every third PC worldwide within the infrastructure of industrial control system (ICS) has been infected by cyberthreats. The infection attempts have occurred both directly and through corporate enterprise networks.

Kaspersky Lab and Nornickel have partnered to boost the cybersecurity of industrial networks and processes of industrial giant. Along with using technology resources, such as a dedicated security solution for industrial infrastructures, the parties intend to actively develop and apply analytics and training services. This approach will help to recognize threats in advance, anticipate new trends of attacks and minimize the impact of the human factor, which causes a significant percentage of corporate security incidents. Kaspersky Lab’s global expertise will be leveraged during the development of information security systems and corporate standards, to protect Nornickel’s production processes.

“Nornickel is the versatile industrial conglomerate that owns enterprises in the mountain and geological mining, metallurgy, energy and transportation industries. Disruption to one of these production chains could lead to serious material damage and reputational losses. As one of the largest industrial organisations worldwide, we are investing in cyber security having realized the relevance of this agenda today and for future growth,” says Vladislav Gasumianov, Vice-president of Nornickel, Member of Executive Board.

Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said: “Cyberthreats to industrial environments are fundamentally different to traditional ‘office’ threats in terms of the scale of their potential consequences: they can be truly devastating. Furthermore, protection of industrial systems requires a different approach, with maintaining the integrity and continuity of the production process being top priorities.

“Any OT disruption can lead to production interruption, equipment failures and cause tremendous losses or, worse, an industrial disaster. We’re happy that Nornickel, one of the world’s largest metal producers, has decided to create a comprehensive integrated security system for both its corporate and industrial systems. This is an important step for Nornickel in maintaining stable development of its business in the face of increasingly complex and dangerous cyberthreats. The future’s already here, and modern factories have become huge cyber-physical systems that must be protected against information threats.”

Air Compressor Controller

compressLatest compressors nowadays come with complete built-in electronic controllers. Depending on the model and the make, the controllers would manage the functions of the compressors checking on their status, recording and conditions of any faults which might occur. In most cases, the controllers fitted to the compressors could be connected so that a controller will be able to manage several machines.

But, now, there are standalone available controllers in the marketplace. Often, these are more sophisticated if compared to the standard ones supplied with compressors, and could also be utilized when it comes in managing or handling up to eight or more compressors that are separate. These controllers could be programmed as well to manage a compressor to maximize the overall efficiency no matter the amount of air needed at the specific time. Typically, these controllers could also be combined with building management system or even remotely monitored over Internet. For more information please visit air compressor management
