Food for Thought..

Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce...

And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.

Assassinated, 1881

Current Coronavirus Scams

March 19, 2020 - Rahm Emanuel once said you should never let a crisis go to waist. Apparently, the scam artists have taken his advice to heart, and they are now targeting businesses and individuals alike. Here is the rundown on the scams we know of already. Just keep in mind as you are reading through this, there will be more to come. 

What the Coronavirus Means for Jobs and Personal Finances
Personal Finances

March 12, 2020 - The economic reaction to the Coronavirus has been swift and severe. The stock market has taken heavy losses and those are now starting to filter into the general economy.

When The Hunter Has Become The Hunted - An Ironic Data Breach
In The News

February 27, 2020 - It's been a little over a month since we first reported on a company named Clearview AI. In short, they are a facial recognition software company, and they are very controversial. That's because they have gone out to social media platforms and taken just about every face-shot they can find; placing those pictures in their own proprietary database and matching the pictures with other identifying data. Right now, that tallies up to be around 3 Billion pictures which they are marketing to law enforcement agencies around the globe. So we find it a little ironic that a company whose primary market is law enforcement is now a data breach target and the victims are the law enforcement agencies themselves. The company just announced that their entire customer database was stolen.

Amazon Go Grocery Store Roll Out Raises Troubling Privacy Considerations
In The News

February 26, 2020 - As companies go, Amazon is a behemoth that now touches just about everything people do. If you shop online, the chances are that you've made a purchase through them. And even if you haven't there's an even better chance that you've compared prices there with other retailers. If you go online at all, you've been touched by them through Amazon Web Services; one of the worlds largest hosting providers. And if you've visited a Whole Foods store, you've been inside one of their more expensive brick and mortar options. But now Amazon is starting to roll out grocery stores for everyone under the name Amazon Go. And they are going to be offering customers a world of convenience, albeit with a cost to your privacy. 

Is the Gig Economy Fueling Identity Theft and Fraud? The Short Answer is, Yes!
In The News

February 20, 2020 - Millions of Americans are now part of the gig economy. Some of them work at it on a full-time basis. Others are freelancers just trying to make a few extra bucks. That really shouldn't be surprising because those working gig jobs can realize a lot of benefits that they can't get in a more traditional job. They can work when they want to. Often, they can work from home. And it many cases, they can make pretty good money. But there is growing evidence that the gig economy also has a downside that includes fraud and identity theft.

Time to Uninstall Avast Antivirus Software If You Value Your Privacy
In The News

January 28, 2020 - Most people install antivirus for protection. They are trying keep their private information… well… private. They want to make sure that their computers aren't hijacked by malware and that their files aren't subject to be read. And most would expect that rather than tracking their internet browsing, their antivirus software might make that kind of tracking more difficult. But according to a report published in Vice, anyone using Avast for their antivirus software may be getting just the opposite of what they expect. 

Your Picture Is Now The Only Thing Needed To Find You
In The News

January 21, 2020 - What if someone could take a picture of you and learn your name, address and other personal details about you in just a few seconds? For years, that has been a question that government, law enforcement agencies, corporations and academics have contemplated but done little else. Now the time for contemplation is over. A company by the name of Clearview AI has made the scenario above a reality and they are now providing their services to more than 600 law enforcement agencies around the country. And other commercial applications of their service are almost certain to follow.
