    Cyber deterrence has been thrown out in the public, governmental, and military sectors for the better part of the first half of the decade, stretching into discussions currently in organizations like NATO, and governments worldwide. The theory is simple: “deter someone from doing something out of fear of repercussion or retaliation.” Theory and concept however, are very different premises and conclusions. Everyone in the information warfare area knows that attribution is a slippery slope, and with the quick typing of a few characters on a keyboard, an attacker can choose to be anyone they want to appear to be. Officials pounding any “attribution” on any pulpit, continue to learn nothing, and attackers will continue with their cyber-shenanigans. These discussions (cyber deterrence) are not scaring, nor deterring anyone. Attribution is a rather mystical thing when it comes to cyber-attacks. “Cyber related” companies offering response based services - incident response, investigations - know this very well and play up the fear to continue to sell their services. As an offensive penetration tester, I have many tricks up my sleeve that can deceive your best firewalls, intrusion prevention, and detection systems. and have staff chasing ghosts. As an offensive penetration tester, I am paid to test systems, processes and policies, and if I can perform such wonderful feats of “disinformation,” you better believe that other attackers can do similar, if not worse disinformation…

    get the disease. Since rats were always present in these crowded cities, they were able to spread the disease all around. Especially on boats and large ship that had rats that were carried from far lands, made it easy for the disease to be spread among continents. The outbreak was so severe, that if something like this was to happen in this day and age, we would still not be prepared for it (Cantor 4). This is one cause of the Black Death which was thought to be more final than Noah 's flood…

    We all have an idea of what we maybe want to do in life, but sometimes we think we want to do that idea that is in our mind because it is in our mind but other cases we want to do it because the idea is there for the moment. Throughout my life I have never really knew what I wanted to do for my occupation. I thought being of computer science, a writer, and a doctor but those didn’t fit well with who I am as a person. The only thing I am most capable of at this moment is being a gymnastic coach.…

    The passage that I found more interesting and caught my attention on how to be a good listener was “Be a Detective”. This makes sense to me because you want to get to the point of there story. You want to understand why there going through that and what's really happening you want them to be able to talk to you and end up figuring there own problem by hearing themselves of what they're saying. It feels get when people let you figure out your own problem and it’s good for the other person because…

    My very first organized basketball game, three years ago, I was a scared, nervous, and excited mess. Wait, let's backtrack to weeks before the game. The level of anticipation among my team for the first game was sky-high. Our team, Purdue, hadn't known each other at all before we were grouped together. Over a span of a few brief weeks, we became quite close. Game day! I was one of the last of my teammates to arrive to the game. Coach Tom, coincidentally also my brother's name, supplied the…

    I found “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” very difficult to read. I found it difficult to read in a few ways. First, the most obvious reason is due to the writing time, had it been written is a modern way, it may have been much easier read. Secondly, I found it difficult since it was written in a play format, the characters were difficult to relate with. While reading, I would not realize, I had moved to a different character until what I was reading made little to no sense. I would then have to…

    types of insulation at a home improvement store and rent the tools needed for installation if you want to do it yourself.

    Farrakhan is an evil, evil man. And some argue his disgusting views are shared by many democrats. The entire situation is absolutely sickening, and White apparently endorses Farrakhan's comments and abhorrent line of thinking. Last week, White was busted cutting his trip short to the Holocaust Memorial Museum, walking out mid-tour without offering any explanation. Presumably, he was taking after Farrakhan and just couldn't stand to show an ounce of respect toward Jews. With pressure mounting…

    imagination is at a higher status than a man’s imagination. To back up her idea, she relates to the idea of imagination to the sense of women’s fashion and how women present themselves. The second argument Murray explains is the power of women’s reason. In her essay, she asks her audience questions that prove female were given reason. However, it is evident that the ability to reason is built on what a person knows. In addition to what a female knows, reason is linked to education that women…
