Why do people go to America? Moving involves tremendous emotional, financial and physical expenditure. It is a very different and unique culture full of surprises, your savings will vanish in the expensive dollar economy, and you will have to adjust to a car driven, credit history driven existence.
Why move to America?
The answer lies in the small notion of American dream-
I can criticize, mock , insult the American president when in America- a freedom I am denied in most other countries on the planet
I can worship anyone and anything, openly, loudly and not be afraid.
I can get a good living even as a blue collar worker and have unlimited opportunities to start y own business or startup with atmost ease.
But above all,
I am free from fear when I am in America. The FBI needs a warrant and the CIA wont hurt me. That is not true of other countries.
Yet with threats of deportation, there is no more freedom from fear. Even to children. Hate crimes against minorities is an unprecedented high (by American standards) and even the press is now mocked (reversing traditional American politics or even politics in other democracies). The Putinization of America is on way and all we do is twiddle on Twitter.
So why move for the American dream?
As someone said, to dream the American dream, you first need to go to sleep.
Simply go to crucial.com , download the scanner (agree to terms) and then scan. It then gives you info on what hardware can be upgraded.
When bankers in suits can lose billions, and be bailed out by tax payer money and pay themselves and each other millions- why should the common man , the middle class be left out of the gravy train that economic productivity created by digital revolutions.
A hacker is a highly skilled person, why should he be exploited for visas, billing rates, sub contracting but have no recourse in normal outdated legal processes
If spies can hack ala Stuxnet and get golden medals
If companies can hack and be rewarded by IPOs
Why cant humans hack and be rewarded for it
Hackers and malware creators are highly talented individuals who have been failed with the system, one in which corporations and governments collude for deliberate vulnerabilities on unsuspecting tax paying software buying people
No Linux user is complaining of a virus if you noticed. But you cant sue people for defective software. Yet!
- Start the day with yoga or a fitness routine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEyyu7kk0ZI
- Eat Healthy (hopefully using a nutrition chart printed out and make your food, but if not eat out at a nearby place. If this is too complicated just eat a lot of salad, water and tea)
- Lets get some brain exercises to improve memory and cognition with Lumosity or something else . Most people end up with mobile games ( They may not be the best brain exercise games)
- Plan your day using a notepad and pencil (less complicated) on what you want to do
- DO THE DAY JOB THAT PAYS FOR COFFEE FOR 8 hours a DAY
- Skill up
- Github – contibute every day and be seen
- Linkedin – promote yourself once by a SEO profile
- Twitter – #mybrand #myexpertise once a week
- Wind down for the day using yoga or relaxation music
- Meet people for dinner
- Do until
When overworked analysts use shortcuts to search huge noisy dirty databases, they create trails which can be mined for actual heuristics
A heuristic technique (/hjᵿˈrɪstᵻk/; Ancient Greek: εὑρίσκω, “find” or “discover”), often called simply a heuristic, is any approach to problem solving, learning, or discovery that employs a practical method not guaranteed to be optimal or perfect, but sufficient for the immediate goals. Where finding an optimal solution is impossible or impractical, heuristic methods can be used to speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution
Example- A Police chief in Chicago may adopt different heuristics than in New York than in New Orleans for allocating human resources
Solution- Make a database of heuristics as actually in practice for that particular domain
Additional Solution- Search Companies to partner not just in giving data but also training and in some case search algorithms for database analysis and database design reviews of Homeland Security
Occam’s razor (also written as Ockham’s razor, and lex parsimoniae in Latin, which means law of parsimony) is a problem-solving principle attributed to William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347), who was an English Franciscan friar, scholastic philosopher and theologian. The principle can be interpreted as stating Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.

De-anonymizing Social Networks
Arvind Narayanan and Vitaly Shmatikov
The University of Texas at Austin
Operators of online social networks are increasingly sharing potentially sensitive information about users and their relationships with advertisers, application developers,
and data-mining researchers. Privacy is typically protected by anonymization, i.e., removing names, addresses, etc.
We present a framework for analyzing privacy and anonymity in social networks and develop a new re-identification algorithm targeting anonymized social- network graphs. To demonstrate its effectiveness on real-
world networks, we show that a third of the users who can be verified to have accounts on both Twitter, a popular microblogging service, and Flickr, an online photo-sharing site, can be re-identified in the anonymous Twitter graph with only a 12% error rate.
