Granite State businesses share different perspectives, practices By Bob Sanders Published: April 12, 2018 Gov. Chris Sununu announces the Recovery Friendly Workplace Initiative on March 27. Courtesy photos What does an employer have to do to become a “recovery-friendly workplace”? For Matthew S. McKenney, workforce development manager at Hypertherm in Lebanon, it is no longer automatically terminating someone in recovery when they have a relapse. For Amanda Grappone Osmer, CEO of Grappone Automotive Group in Bow, it’s “doing everything we are doing anyway. It’s not a heavy lift. It’s mainly about having that conversation.” For Gregory Sevinsky, general manager of Walmart’s distribution center in Raymond, “There are a lot of unanswered questions about what it looks like.” However such a workplace is defined for these “early adopters,” the hope is that New Hampshire’s … [Read more...] about How does an employer approach becoming a ‘recovery-friendly workplace’?
Do i need a domain name
(MoneyWatch) According to VeriSign (VRSN), more than 6 million domain names were added to the Internet in the fourth quarter of 2012, bringing the total number of registered domain names to more than 252 million worldwide. Somewhere in those hundreds of millions of names may be one you really want, one that appears to be unused or for sale. Countless domains are bought and "stocked" by aftermarket resellers, and others are bought by prospective users who never wind up doing anything with them. The aftermarket domain business can be tricky and frustrating -- sometimes you can't even get as far as finding and contacting the current owner. So what do you do when you see a URL out there that you'd like to buy and know or believe might be for sale? What the best online businesses have in common5 keys to effective online chat3 things you shouldn't buy onlineI recently had an excellent experience buying an aftermarket domain from the well-established reseller domainagency.com, and struck up a … [Read more...] about The business of buying aftermarket domain names

"Ransomware" is a nightmare for consumers but positively lucrative for scammers, which is why the pace of new attacks is speeding up. The latest twist on ransomware is particularly audacious, with scammers using a spam campaign to reach as many consumers as possible with an enticing email come-on: "Your package has been delivered," according to new research from computer security firm Endgame. If a consumer opens the attached file to find out more -- some people may think it refers to their tax returns, for instance -- the ransomware is unleashed. Ransomware is particularly successful because the malware encrypts files on a victim's computer, keeping the files in lockdown until the victim either forks over a ransom or misses the deadline. If the latter happens, the files are deleted and lost to the user. It's a lucrative business for criminals, with the FBI finding that the scam cost U.S. victims at least $18 million from April 2014 to June 2015. The pace of new attacks has only … [Read more...] about ”Package has been delivered” email? Be on guard for a scam
Lost “Adrift” Originally aired September 28, 2005 Mario Perez: ABC “What is the name of that website with the funny cats, again? ‘Can I have a hamburger?’ Is that it?” So, this recapping season two business is harder than I thought it would be. Take “Adrift”: Not one of my favorite episodes. We’ll get to why later, but suffice it to say, this episode feels like a whole lot of set-up and very little revelation. And as such, I find myself wondering what to say. Might be hard to believe some 6,000 words later, but it’s true. Maybe it’s that we’re so close, 33 episodes away from all the answers that we are ever going to get, that to look at these early episodes now feels like a fool’s mission. Or maybe I just don’t like this episode. Sigh. Let’s get on with it, and try to salvage some meaning out of this. And try to avoid the sharks. David and Goliath story (But isn’t that a good thing?

Last fall I did some chatting on a dating app with a guy I hoped to meet. He had a job, he had an adorable pooch—and he was friends with people I knew in the flesh. So I gave him my cell number and asked him to call me about 10 p.m. that night. “What could go wrong?” I asked myself.Here’s what: Just after 10 he texted that he was at a restaurant around the corner—and he pulled into my driveway two minutes later. “How did you know where I live?” I asked. “That was easy – you gave me your phone number,” he said nonchalantly as I told him to leave, which (fortunately) he did. But the episode freaked me out.More than 15% of all American adults have used a mobile dating app or site, according to a 2016 Pew Research Center study—nearly 40 million people—and one recent study found that at least half of them lie about themselves in their profiles (other research puts that percentage even higher). Many of those lies … [Read more...] about He showed up at my house after I ‘met’ him on a dating app. I was freaked out
SEOUL, South Korea — The nonprofit body that oversees Internet addresses approved Friday the use of Hebrew, Hindi, Korean and other scripts not based on Latin characters in a decision that could make the Web dramatically more inclusive. The board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers — or ICANN — voted to allow such scripts in so-called domain names at the conclusion of a weeklong meeting in Seoul, South Korea's capital. The decision by the board's 15 voting members was unopposed and welcomed by applause and a standing ovation. It followed years of debate and testing. The result clears the way for governments or their designees to submit requests for specific names, likely beginning Nov. 16. Internet users could start seeing them in use early next year, particularly in Arabic, Chinese and other scripts in which demand has been among the highest, ICANN officials say. "This represents one small step for ICANN, but one big step for half of … [Read more...] about Internet addresses set for change, after ICANN votes in favor of foreign character domain names
SAN FRANCISCO — The massive ransomware attack that crippled more than 20% of hospitals in the United Kingdom and disabled systems in as many as 74 countries appears to have been inadvertently stopped by a 22-year-old computer security researcher in England who began studying it Friday afternoon.The story, which the as-yet-unnamed security whiz wrote up in a blog post on Saturday, is an example of the driven-to-puzzle-things-out mentality typical of people drawn to cybersecurity.“He was in the right place at the right time, and he did the right thing without any hesitation,” said Dan Kaminsky, a longtime security researcher and chief scientist at White Ops, a New York-based based security firm.Because nobody's really in charge of the Internet, it's messy and wonderful in equal proportion, he said."We maintain it with duct tape, baling wire and the good graces of no small number of 'volunteer firefighters.' I am … [Read more...] about How a 22-year-old inadvertently stopped a worldwide cyberattack
A HARDSCRABBLE STRETCH of Pacific St. in Brooklyn, with its gutted buildings and heaps of charred debris pocking the neighborhood, is beginning to resemble Bushwick or the South Bronx in the 1970s. There have been nine intentionally set fires on the street in the last 15 months, and investigators believe the most recent three are linked. The crimes may be related to drug-dealing disputes, but some people in the neighborhood prefer to blame greed because the area lies near major redevelopment projects. Whatever the motive, the fires have left a trail of dead, injured, homeless and heartbroken who have been largely forgotten. The early morning is when Margaret Pulliam most misses her only sibling, Sherri Williams, who'd beep in on her walkie-talkie phone, shouting "Hey, wake up! Get ready. " Williams would have already dropped her son off at school and be heading to work and then college classes. "It was always me and my sister," Pulliam said of the 23-year-old Williams, … [Read more...] about A TORCHED NABE & LIVES IN RUINS. 16 fires in 15 months on one B’klyn stretch
Norma Vally sees no reason why home repair should be the exclusive domain of Mr. Fix-Its and handymen. The Discovery Home Channel's "Toolbelt Diva" most definitely believes that, when it comes to picking up a saw or screwdriver, sisters should be doing it for themselves. "Who wants to be waiting around for that guy who's been promising to hang those shelves you bought six months ago, which are still sitting at the bottom of your closet collecting dust? " says Vally, a 40-year-old Brooklyn-born model and rock singer-turned-construction pro. "Do we really want to put our lives on hold for the guy? " "Chix Can Fix" is not only Vally's mantra, but the name of her new book (Viking Studio, $14. 95), as well. In it, she shows why women should not be afraid of a little tool time. She offers clear instructions and illustrations detailing 100 home-improvement projects, each accompanied by humor and her trademark sassy attitude. "Don't, out of frustration, chuck a freakin' … [Read more...] about SHE KNOWS THE DRILL. TV’s ‘Toolbelt Diva’ says every woman can be a fixit-chick. RATCHET IT UP, LADIES!
