Content marketing and its close cousin, search engine optimization, are the “pull” of many promotional plans. Articles, videos, and podcasts draw potential customers to businesses, engaging them with useful, informative, or entertaining content.

In October 2022, your business content marketing could include articles on financial planning, selecting holiday gifts, Italian or Polish heritage, historic or celebrity birthdays, or celebrating Internet Day.

Here are five content marketing ideas your business can use in October 2022.

1. Financial Planning Month

The Financial Planning Association created Financial Planning Month in 2002 to educate Americans about financial planning and how to save money. Financial planning includes topics such as retirement planning, estate planning, insurance, and investing.

October 2022 is Financial Planning Month in the United States. Use this celebration to produce content about smart holiday shopping and why your products are great value.

Some have argued that it’s no coincidence that this October celebration comes just before Christmas gift-giving season, when so many people can overspend.

For your company’s October 2022 marketing, consider writing articles related to financial responsibility and holiday shopping. You can highlight the value associated with your products or how buying gifts early with a budget in mind could help your customers.

You can still aim to sell your products while advocating for responsible buying and helping people understand the value your products and business provide.

2. Holiday shopping guides

It’s giving season, and your company’s content marketing needs to reflect that. October is a great time to start promoting gift guides showcasing your best products and deals for Christmas 2022.

Do you sell beauty products? Why not create a makeup gift guide for the holidays? Or, if you have a home decorating business, create a holiday home gift guide with items for every room.

Not only will this content benefit your customers when shopping for holiday gifts, but it will also serve as a reminder that your business exists with compelling products.

3. Heritage Month

October is both Italian-American and Polish-American Heritage Month. So this is an opportunity to create content celebrating the many contributions to America of Italian and Polish immigrants and their families.

For example, a business selling electrical equipment might create content describing how the wave of Polish immigration from 1870 to 1914 contributed to a significant growth in public works and private construction in the United States.

A western clothing and footwear retailer might create content about the Italian artisans who essentially created the cowboy look. Pio Serratelli, an Italian, started his hat making business in 1878. Many consider Serratelli to be one of the finest Western hats ever made. Likewise, the famous bootmaker Tony Lama, known for the cowboy boot company he started, was also Italian.

An Italian-American founded the Tony Lama boot company.

Within the industry your business serves, there will almost certainly be an opportunity to celebrate Italian-American or Polish-American heritage that will resonate with your customers.

4. Famous birthdays

The 39th US President, Jimmy Carter, was born on October 1, 1924.

An essential part of “culture” or “lifestyle” content marketing is creating posts about famous people around the time of their birthday. This tactic can be great if there is a connection between your products, your customers and the person you are presenting.

A celebrity mini-biography might go well with your products. For example, a men’s clothing store might showcase actor Zach Galifianakis’ style using press photos. The article could end with product suggestions for a similar look.

Here are some examples of people you could write about around their birthdays.

October 1st

  • President Jimmy Carter
  • Julie Andrews
  • Zach Galifianakis

October 2

  • Sting
  • Annie Leibovitz
  • Mahatma Gandhi

October 3

  • Tessa Thompson
  • Al Sharton
  • Gore Vidal

October 4

  • Susan Sarandon
  • Charlton-Heston
  • Rembrandts

5. Internet Day

Sir Tim Berners-Lee helped start the internet and thus contributed to the eventual growth of e-commerce.

On October 29, the world celebrates Internet Day to commemorate the creation of the first website by Tim Berners-Lee in 1991. The simple page contains only a short text that reads “This is a test.”

Although that may not seem like much, it’s hard to imagine a world without the Internet. Today, the Internet has become an essential part of our lives.

For this potential vacation, find a way to connect the products or services you sell to the emergence of the World Wide Web.

A cute first date at the Carrollwood Cultural Center https://pagerank-tracking.com/a-cute-first-date-at-the-carrollwood-cultural-center/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 14:48:45 +0000 https://pagerank-tracking.com/a-cute-first-date-at-the-carrollwood-cultural-center/ Going to a show not knowing what it’s about isn’t too different from being on a blind date: 1) It can start off shaky, even horrifying, and end happily; 2) it can start strong but end up going astray; 3) it can be incredibly stellar from first to last moment; or 4) it can start […]]]>

Going to a show not knowing what it’s about isn’t too different from being on a blind date: 1) It can start off shaky, even horrifying, and end happily; 2) it can start strong but end up going astray; 3) it can be incredibly stellar from first to last moment; or 4) it can start depressingly in a horrible mode and never recover (where an obvious rescue call is needed). I saw the small-scale musical, FIRST DATE, at the Carrollwood Cultural Center last night without knowing much about it; guess which of the above scenarios matches my experience?

PREMIER RENDEZ-VOUS, with music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner and a book of Austin Winsberg, centers on an awkward blind date between two New Yorkers, the nerdy Aaron and the “artistic” Casey. We follow every disastrous and heartfelt moment of their meeting, from the not so positive first impressions of each other, to that reward break where neither knows what to say, to the moment they receive the dinner check, all leading up to the end of the evening, where perhaps a hopeful kiss awaits. It’s a sometimes incisive, sometimes cute, sometimes edgy musical with a few funny bits and lots of heart.

I went to the FIRST DATE relatively blind; I had seen and heard some of the songs performed at Thespian festivals in the past, but otherwise I came with no preconceived ideas. And of the scenarios above, #1 comes closest to my reactions. The show started off pretty shaky, a rocky, rough start, where the first song, a group number called “The One”, just wasn’t enough for me. The red flags went off; had I left for a disastrous evening of the theater? Some other songs didn’t work out later on the show, including “C’est quoi tu m’aimes”, which sadly sounded like screaming off-night karaoke at the Brass Tap after a few glasses of too much green tea.

Things get a little more grounded when we meet Aaron and Casey, though Winsberg’s dialogue seems too sit-commy and forced for my tastes. But something miraculous happened during the show. I suddenly got invested in the story of these two flawed individuals and started to enjoy it to the fullest. For the first twenty minutes or so, I wondered if the show could ever survive its shaky start, but not only did it recover from a rocky start, it soared. PREMIER RENDEZ-VOUS has become moving and funny and sincere and authentic, everything we expect from an evening at the theatre. Although inconsistent, the production ultimately won me over.

The cast is overall wonderful.

In the role of Aaron with glasses, a BDV (“Blind Date Virgin”), Craig Ruska appears as a synthesis of Seymour Krelborn, J. Pierrepont Finch and the actor Charles Martin Black-smith. Dressed somewhat “douchey” in a coat and tie (the tie was later removed), Ruska has crisp comedic timing and superior vocal chops, and while it’s not a naturalistic performance, she is quite effective and entertaining. We’re rooting for him, even when the character makes cringe-worthy mistakes that make his date – and the audience – quite uncomfortable. Ruska’s duet on “The Things I Never Said,” with his real wife, Erin Ruska playing his mother, will bring tears to your eyes.

Kara Doyle is wonderful, with a wonderful singing voice, as Aaron’s blind date, Kara, a young woman used to dating bad boys. However, she continues to be described as “artistic”, but nothing in her demeanor or attire suggests this “artistic” persona (we learn later that she works in a gallery). Plus, early on, when Aaron calls her a BDS — a “blind date bitch” — she just sits there, not really reacting. I’m sorry, but if at the start of a date someone suggests that you’re a slut, you’d probably respond with warmth, perhaps even getting up to leave.

Mr. Ruska and Mrs. Doyle are a lovely couple, and we love them both very much, mainly because it’s not just that we know them…it’s because we are their. (And if you’re a “Quantum Leap” fan, then this is the show for you.)

Erin Ruska and Ashley Whitting shine in a variety of roles, from Aaron’s Jewish grandmother (Ms. Ruska) to his hurtful ex, Allison (Ms. Whiting). Mackley Fogarty and Chris Kadonsky-Grant are strong actors with wild energy in various parts, but their voice acting in some numbers isn’t their forte. Grant Sparr appears on the spot for some much-needed energy, appearing as Reggie, Casey’s “bailout” call in case his date fails. Sparr is electric on stage, something of an entertainer’s spark plug (or maybe we should label him a Sparr Plug).

Marcus Blake stands out as a waiter who comments on the actions of first dates, his “I Order Love” one of the highlights of the night. And his use of puppets at one point is a funny laugh (watch the show to see why there’s a puppet in the middle of this production). His deep voice is off the charts, and without him in some of the band’s numbers, it could tip over to being unlistenable.

Musical director Michelle Kadonsky-Grant leads the tight group on stage which includes Catherine Baker on piano, Rusty Wirt on bass and Kevin Adair on drums. A choreographer is mentioned in the program (Devan Bittinger), but there doesn’t seem to be much dancing in this show.

Ultra-talented director Keith Eisenstadt, with the help of his assistant director, Rhett Ricardo, deftly leads the way and makes the most of his small cast. After the aforementioned difficult opening, I really settled in and enjoyed the evening he created. There are some brilliant touches, including the server listing upcoming shows as menu items and specials. But there were also some pacing issues, including a long, far too long pause at the start (suddenly I thought I was watching a pantomime rather than a musical). Also, I would like to see a list of songs in the program; if that happened Lease Where the sound of music, shows we all know, so no song list is needed. But most people don’t know FIRST DATE, so a song list would be very helpful for us beginners.

At one point in the series, when Aaron admits to playing Dolly Levi in ​​an all-male production of Hello Dolly! he says his performances have been described as “eerily convincing”. This is a description that also matches FIRST DATE: Curiously convincing. And yet, it speaks to so many people who have gone on blind dates or are still in the dating pool. It’s a musical that captures the zeitgeist of the past decade but still speaks to us today, especially the song about the dangers of online dating and social media (“The World Wide Web Is Forever” ). There are joys and frustrations brought to light in the show, just as there are in life. FIRST DATE does indeed have an edge – it reflects modern times, so it better have some bite – but there’s also a dandy sweetness and a tonnage of wit that will leave you smiling.

FIRST DATE plays at the Carrollwood Cultural Center until September 25.

The utility that comes from onboarding adoption continues to be at the heart of the Dogecoin Foundation

Libdogecoin, which refers to the cornerstone of creating Dogecoin projects, receives further improvements. According to Dogecoin lead developer Michi Lumin, Libdogecoin v 0.1.1 is progressing well.

Improvements in Libdogecoin v.0.1 will include better garbage collection, better compatibility, easier build procedure and more “no rocket science degree required” support for HD address derivation. The focus remains on simple implementation, according to developer Dogecoin.

In August, U.Today announced the initial release of Libdogecoin v.0.1, a Dogecoin building block C library that allows lightweight direct integration of Dogecoin into a variety of platforms without requiring developers to have a in-depth knowledge of blockchain.

The utility that comes from onboarding adoption continues to be at the heart of the Dogecoin Foundation. This is believed to be possible by taking advantage of the basic functionality of Dogecoin and making it available as a simple C library with bindings for many languages, thus enhancing the creative potential of the community.

Ads

Through the development of Libdogecoin over the past few months, the Dogecoin Foundation has been focused on setting up many projects including RadioDoge and GigaWallet aimed at grassroots adoption.

This is significant as Dogecoin became the second largest proof-of-work blockchain by market capitalization following Ethereum’s transition to proof-of-stake. The meme coin is currently valued at $8 billion. Currently, Bitcoin remains the largest proof-of-work blockchain with a market capitalization of nearly $380 billion.

MyDoge Wallet Teases ‘DogeTV’ Launch

According to a post by developer Dogecoin inevitable360, MyDoge Wallet, a self-service wallet, announces the debut of “DogeTV”. At the time of publication, there were few details available on “DogeTV”, although it was expected that this would give Dogecoin users access to the most up-to-date news from the neighborhood.

Dogecoin recently unveiled a new website with several improvements as well as the addition of “Dogepedia” which aims to dispel FUD.

Passwordless Authentication: Does Removing Passwords Increase Security? https://pagerank-tracking.com/passwordless-authentication-does-removing-passwords-increase-security/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 17:54:38 +0000 https://pagerank-tracking.com/passwordless-authentication-does-removing-passwords-increase-security/ “It’s safer because basically you’re removing the possibility that if someone steals or phishes your password, they can’t use it to access whatever they’re trying to access,” says Goerlich. “They need those factors that they don’t necessarily have with them.” The password also limits phishing attacks, according to Goerlich. “The authenticator will look at this […]]]>

“It’s safer because basically you’re removing the possibility that if someone steals or phishes your password, they can’t use it to access whatever they’re trying to access,” says Goerlich. “They need those factors that they don’t necessarily have with them.”

The password also limits phishing attacks, according to Goerlich. “The authenticator will look at this URL and match it before providing credentials,” it says. “So even if the criminals are using the things they’ve been using for years, i.e. words that sound alike or zeros instead of O’s, the authentication mechanism isn’t fooled by that. , and therefore common phishing techniques fail and are not applicable.”

Additionally, passwordless authentication is beneficial for hybrid working, says Goerlich. When users work from home, it’s difficult to validate who they are to reset their passwords, so password reset costs have increased. Passwordless authentication eliminates the need to do so, he notes, as well as the need for a user to travel to headquarters to reset their authentication.

Passwordless “provides a very good user experience and significantly reduces the friction users face when trying to maintain access to their systems in the hybrid environment,” Goerlich says.

There are challenges in hybrid setups to enroll and onboard employees and ensure that they are not, for example, also enrolling their children, or maintaining tokens appropriately. In some cases, organizations are integrating live remote employees into video chats, Goerlich says. “It’s really about figuring out what the processes are, and that takes time.”

What is the FIDO Authentication Standard?

FIDO stands for Fast Identity Online. The FIDO Alliance is an organization that sets standards focused on identity-related interoperability.

“The FIDO Alliance has created something called FIDO Authentication, which is a standard that makes interoperable passwordless authentication possible,” Scarfone says.

FIDO promotes standards such as the universal second factor, which is behind security keys and tokens, Goerlich notes.

FIDO2, the latest standard, was launched in 2018and its support has expanded in 2020 across Apple some products. “FIDO2 enables users to leverage common devices to easily authenticate to online services in mobile and desktop environments,” the alliance Remarks. “The FIDO2 specifications are the Web Authentication (WebAuthn) specification of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the corresponding Client-to-Authenticator Protocol (CTAP) of the FIDO Alliance.”

SEOUL – Line Next, a US-based company launched by Line Corporation, a Japan-based messaging app operator, has unveiled the beta version of its new non-fungible token (NFT) platform called “DOSI” in the whole world. It allows commercial operators and creators to create their own branded NFT stores and global communities. The NFT can be redeemed at each brand store.

NFT is a unit of data stored on a blockchain network of interconnected virtual ledgers. Each NFT is certified by a blockchain as a unique digital asset that is not interchangeable. Using LINE NFT, anyone can trade or gift NFT through simple payment methods.

DOSI is available in 180 countries and supports Korean, English, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Latin languages. “Anyone can easily purchase and collect NFTs of their favorite content with just a few clicks,” Line Next CEO Ko Young-su said in a statement on Sept. 14.

Line Next’s platform consists of a store where businesses and brands can sell NFTs, a content-specific service such as entertainment and games, a dedicated NFT wallet, and an NFT-based membership. Compensation will be given based on the contribution of transactions or friend invitations.

Subscription and login can be completed simply by using social accounts. The platform supports simple payment methods such as credit cards for NFT transactions, and NFT can be easily purchased without separate issue fees. Crypto assets will be added later as a payment method.

Line Next aims to diversify its content by signing an IP monopoly contract with Naver and CJ ENM and introducing IP-based NFT projects to the entertainment industry.

“We will provide a gateway that connects NFT and the public through DOSI and develop a Web 3.0 ecosystem,” Ko said. Web 3.0 is a new iteration of the blockchain-based World Wide Web that incorporates concepts such as decentralization and the token-based economy.

Web 3.0 solves the overcentralization of the Web in a few large technology companies and improves data security, scalability and privacy beyond what is currently possible with Web 2.0 platforms that focus on created content by user uploaded on social media and networking services.

hair and makeup in the metaverse https://pagerank-tracking.com/hair-and-makeup-in-the-metaverse/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 04:16:16 +0000 https://pagerank-tracking.com/hair-and-makeup-in-the-metaverse/ Charlotte Tilbury is now an avatar.

Charlotte Tilbury is now an avatar. In April this year, the beauty mogul entered the metaverse, meaning wherever you are in the world, you can channel her expertise with just a few clicks. Thanks to augmented reality, Tilbury appears like a fairy godmother, inviting you into her digital world: the virtual reality Pillow Talk Party. In this beauty wonderland, you can shop, attend a masterclass, and connect with like-minded cosmetics fans.

The British beauty brand isn’t alone. Clinique this summer launched its non-fungible token campaign, Metaverse More Like Us, in which three global content creators and makeup artists designed three looks — NFT Profile Pictures, or PFPs — that customers can purchase for their avatars. MAC has a long history of using virtual try-ons or VTOs, while Byredo recently launched its first digital fragrance.

If you’re feeling a bit lost at this point, we don’t blame you. You can live and breathe the latest eyeshadow palettes and skincare science, but keeping up with technological advancements in the (digital) world of beauty is a whole different story. So what do we need to know, as consumers?

The theory: what is the metaverse and how does beauty fit into it?

When it comes to a definition, even the tech-savvy experts can’t agree on just one. Louis Chen, chief strategy officer and senior vice president of Perfect Corp, an AI and AR beauty and fashion technology solutions provider, said, “There is no single common definition of the metaverse at the moment. For us, this means a more immersive virtual experience further augmented by the ever-evolving capabilities of AI solutions. This form of new virtual reality opens up a plethora of possibilities for brands to engage with their customers, removing many of the barriers associated with moving through physical space.

Faced with a global pandemic but armed with this ever-changing technology, the beauty industry was quick to get on board. L’Oréal, for example, filed 17 metaverse-related trademarks this year.

The practice: virtual tests and digital diagnosis

For the day-to-day consumer, entering the metaverse will come in a much more practical sense. Brands have been experimenting with AR services for several years. While much of this has taken place in a physical store, the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated supply and demand.

Late last year, MAC launched a trial service for one of its most popular products, Studio Fix Foundation. We know what you’re thinking: choosing makeup is such a sensory experience and so hard to imitate online, but the response to tech has been overwhelmingly positive. Above all, AR tools have proven effective.

You can also find your perfect hair shade at Schwarzkopf, use Clinique’s AR diagnostic tools to shop for a tailored skincare regimen, and try on hundreds of nail polishes before committing to Sally Hansen’s VTO service. .

And the stats prove it’s a win-win: MAC reported a 200% increase in engagement, while Sally Hansen’s launch generated a 110% increase in conversion while exchanges and customer feedback customers have dropped, demonstrating that technology is improving customer purchases. experience and satisfaction.

Not only does the use of augmented reality and virtual reality bring the highly sensory experience home (or anywhere) in a more authentic way, but it can also open previously closed doors for many consumers. . Where an expensive trip to a dermatologist might have been out of the question, a free skincare diagnosis using technological advancements is no longer.

The staff: avatars, NFT and digital diversity

There’s more to the metaverse of beauty than enhancing experiences that end up being a projection into the real world. It is increasingly about how we identify ourselves online and how we create an individual digital presence.

Brands are striving to offer personalized experiences and virtual products to allow consumers to build this – and beauty is just dipping its toes into the power and potential of this new reality.

“In the metaverse, consumers will want to use products to express their style and personality, so beauty brands will need to adapt more to meet this demand,” Chen says.

Yes, we are talking about digital avatars – how we design them and how we decorate them. They may seem otherworldly to the uninitiated, but it can be helpful to think of avatars as a natural evolution of the social media profile, a representation of yourself online that the beauty industry helps to facilitate.

Chen explains that part of Perfect Corps’ mission is to help brands “create digital versions of their physical products,” taking the beauty metaverse from just an external look at what a product is. to hold in your hand has to offer something that only exists in the digital world.

Consider the three makeup looks created by beauty gurus Emira D’Spain, Sheika Daley and Tess Daly for Clinique’s Metaverse campaign created to encourage self-expression online. Find the look you like and purchase it as an NFT for your avatar to wear.

Beauty designer and TikTok model D’Spain said of the project, “My big hope for the metaverse is to create a safe and welcoming space for all types of people.” For an industry that has never made a clean sweep of history when it comes to diversity, the Metaverse is a chance for beauty to try again, to create a place that is truly representative and allows people to feel seen.

This is not new for those who are immersed in the world of gaming, which in recent years has crossed paths with luxury fashion, brands like Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton or Burberry designing “skins” (virtual clothes that can be purchased and downloaded to update a video game). character’s wardrobe) in collaboration with Fortnite and Mythical Games. The trend is going nowhere and the beauty industry is hot on its heels.

The interpersonal: virtual reality, new worlds and open communities

Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Party is just the tip of the iceberg. Perhaps most exciting is what’s yet to come, the new worlds brands will build for us to enter, learn, interact with, shop and perhaps more: a place where it all comes together.

As Chen says, “The Metaverse is the next rung on this ladder, where AR and AI beauty and fashion technologies help customers enjoy unique experiences and experiment freely in an incredible virtual world.

Nars relied on the power of Roblox – an online gaming platform and game creation system – to create a limited-time gaming experience that immersed users in its world, inciting with challenges, earning badges and virtual beauties up for grabs.

Japanese beauty brand SK-II has created a Sims-like virtual world for its followers to explore destinations, while getting a glimpse of BTS on the brand.

Like most game-changing innovations in the history of the World Wide Web, better connection is at its heart. As beauty enters the metaverse, consumers will be able to connect with brands, products, personalities and other customers more intimately than ever. Right after picking the perfect lipstick shade for their avatar, that is.

It didn’t take long for Emmy to be bombarded with responses, with avid TikTokers sharing their own clips of how they personally like to use the parking brake.

Fellow Australian creator Jean McDonald urged drivers to avoid Emmy’s approach to the brake, arguing it put too much pressure on the car’s gearbox – which could prove costly in the long run term.

“When you put your car in park and then put your handbrake on, the whole weight of the car is on the parking brake rather than the handbrake, which means it’s on the gearbox” , he told his viewers, claiming the action “fuck your gearbox”.

According to McDonald, the correct approach is to put the car in neutral, apply the handbrake, and then put it in park.

“That way the weight of the car is on the handbrake and not the gearbox,” he said.

His tips, which also feature on the Hot Rod car education platform, have also gone viral, racking up millions of views and likes.

Meanwhile, others have argued that it doesn’t matter when you apply the handbrake, noting that whatever technique you use is unlikely to cause serious gearbox damage.

Responses also differed from country to country, with US drivers seeming more dependent on the “park” function than the parking brake, which appears to be more commonly used in Australia.

By Matt Hanson

The Internet’s Most Hated Man tells a legitimate story in which the good guys win, but there’s no attempt to answer one of the most important and uncomfortable social questions the show raises.

A scene from The Internet’s Most Hated Man. Picture: Netflix.

Not so long ago, a young woman in California decided to take a topless photo of herself. She then emailed it to her own private email account. Reasonably enough, she assumed that would be it. She had no idea what was going to happen. Unbeknownst to her, her privately taken photo was made available to the public on a now-defunct website called isanyoneup.com, which specializes in “revenge porn,” a self-explanatory term. Her story of abuse, and those like her, is told in this three-part, but sadly superficial, new Netflix series. The most hated man on the internet.

The rancid setup of the website: People sent photos of their exes or any private photography they could get their hands on. isanyoneup.com posted them to tickle viewers (and there were a lot of them). Sneaky and malicious comments were encouraged. The site was run by a young drug addicted man whose name it is better not to repeat because why give him more notoriety. Also, even though he spent time in prison, he is currently walking (or would it be slipping) among us.

Let’s stick to his initials and say that the most hated eponymous man was a Horny Moster, a Hungry Manipulator, who was horribly untruthful. The kid ran his site like his own private online attack club and made big bucks taking obvious pleasure in trashing strangers while engaging his fans in the sadistic hazing.

Luckily, the young woman in question had a fiercely protective mother and a steel-backed lawyer father to come to her aid. Not everyone whose private photos have been hacked, stolen, or shared without permission has had such strong advocates. We get the story of the sick website and the creep that ran it, but the series aptly focuses on the admirable tenacity of the woman’s mother, who indomitablely defended her own daughter’s privacy while deciding entirely by itself to defend the alarmingly high number. victims of the site. The series ends up being a tribute to filial devotion: an admiring look at how far a parent will go to protect and defend their child. It adds something of a feel-good angle to the story arc, a surprisingly heartwarming approach given the thorny subject matter.

Of course, the story of a young woman who agreed to do painful things live on camera is heartbreaking to hear. Ironically, she seems to regret the end of her quarter of an hour of fame, even if it consisted of humiliating herself in public. In a culture that worships fame, visibility is paramount. The most hated man on the internet touches on the murky moral implications of the situation, he doesn’t have the nerve to explore too deeply, and that’s a waste.

It’s not just that there was a website where people were posting their personal information without their consent. It’s bad enough. We all know that we take a risk when we do anything online. there are a myriad of hackers and shady websites across the boundless sight of the internet. It’s not uncommon to get bitten by malware while innocently browsing the World Wide Web. It’s happened to everyone.

What’s far more disturbing is how long Hateful Meathead got away with it, and how many people savored his relentless meanness, exploitation, and sordidness. Yes, the site offered illicit kicking enhanced by the anonymity of cyberspace. Lots of sites do it anyway. Shocking isn’t necessarily the right word, but you can’t help but wonder why the site has become so popular. Why did so many people love a person everyone hated so much? Bullies and creeps will still be there; it’s nothing new and nothing special.

The crux here is that a bully gets a boost when he receives a crew that encourages his cruelty. He is given a team to put down roots and conspire with. And these groups are what made up the army commanded by the king of revenge porn, who developed a Manson-like online cult called The Family. The beleaguered mother was constantly harassed, threatened and made to fight even harder and longer than she should have to seek justice for her daughter and other victims like her. We meet an ex-Marine – with a lifelong distaste for bullying – who helped recruit the radical hacker community Anonymous to force the site to change from revenge porn to an anti-bullying website.

That’s good, but the crucial question that the movie doesn’t explore is what in our society is causing such a foul ooze online? If it is true, as some claim, that the Internet is where people go to be themselves, free from the restrictions of everyday life, then revenge porn as a phenomenon could be more than a simple matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Hacker Monster wasn’t just a kid living in his mother’s basement: he proudly DJed raves all over the country and sent videos of himself partying to his legions of fans. worshipers. The filmmakers offered to interview him for the film but he declined.

Is the success of a porn site like this, no matter how brief, just the hustle and bustle of a born charlatan? The triumph of a brutal social Darwinist mentality in a country that celebrates the winner – but is just as happy to see a foot planted firmly on the neck of the loser? Are we talking about kicking by proxy because of sexual repression? Or just bored, insecure teenagers who can’t resist a chance to pounce on other people’s vulnerabilities? The series tells a legitimate story in which the good guys win, but there’s no attempt to answer any of these larger, uncomfortable social questions. And that kind of honest conversation is what we need to fix the problem, along with tougher congressional regulations regarding the internet and its mandarins. Ways must be found to keep freaks and sleazes away from other people’s sensitive information. Otherwise, prepare for a future in which the World Wide Web is an amoral game free for all.

Panjim: In stunning comments on Thursday, Hyderabad Police Commissioner told local press that after some drug lobby kingpins in Hyderabad were arrested, they were running against a wall, carrying out more arrests due to non-cooperation of Goa Police.

Speaking to the Herald by telephone from Hyderabad on Friday, Police Commissioner CV Anand made startling revelations about how the biggest players in India’s drug trade have moved to Goa due to the amount of drugs that is located in Goa and the bulk of the trade which is controlled from Goa and supplied to other parts of the country including Telangana.

Commissioner Anand, has shockingly stated for the first time that the Dark Web is being used for drug deals by Goa-based narco kingpins. It is a whole online underground network where illegal activities occur.

The “dark web” is a part of the World Wide Web that requires special software to access. Trading takes place on crypto markets which are marketplaces on the dark web that use cryptocurrency and connect buyers and sellers for the sale of illicit goods and services, primarily weapons and drugs.

“Some of the biggest drug traffickers and dealers in India have moved to Goa because of the amount of drugs there,” Commissioner Anand said.

“We arrested about six of them in Hyderabad after careful planning and execution (while traveling to Hyderabad to affect supplies),” he added.

He revealed that a Narendra Arya moved from Haryana to Goa and transferred his business there. Arya is in the custody of Commissioner Anand’s team along with other alleged Goa-based drug kingpins, Hafeez Ramlan, Navneet Anup, Pritesh Narayan Borkar and a Nigerian named Nicholas.

The reason Hyderabad Police have upped the ante is that many Goa stalwarts operate in Hyderabad. “Our chief minister (K ​​Chandrashekar Rao) has ordered us not to find a gram of illicit drugs in the state,” Anand said.
