Is it Ethical to steal wireless internet service? Is it ethical or legal to steal your neighbors wireless internet service? Is it ethical or legal to steal wireless internet service from a business? Furthermore, is it ethical or legal to parade around town looking for open wireless networks?
The following exert is from Douglas Schweitzer, a free lance writer in Nesconset, N.Y. “There's no denying that, whether you consider unauthorized use legal or not, leaving your wireless network unsecured is a reckless decision. Even if you don't mind the idea of unauthorized users gaining access to your network, you should be aware that any illegal activity they engage in could be traced back to your computer.” Most new laptop computers come equipped with a wireless network card installed. They are programmed to automatically detect a wireless network in range, making it easy to view available networks. Rather it is a wireless network from a business or a home wireless network, if precaution is not taken those networks can be viewed and or accessed. The lack of securing your network is a great cause for concern. Many people who have internet services in their homes and businesses really don’t know many of the risks that are out there. The world has grown tremendously from one computer in their homes and businesses having access to the internet via dial-up to many computers connected in a small network in our homes and much larger networks in our businesses. Not only are computers connected in a wired network fashion, but they are being connected wirelessly without any protection such as encryption. With the affordability of wireless routers with wired ports available, the wireless generation is here to stay. Not only is wireless available in homes and businesses, they are also available in internet cafés. These cafés are designed for wireless use and propose many…...

...Agency, only a fraction have gone through complete testing to find out whether they might cause problems for human health. Many that are produced in enormous quantities have never been tested at all. Usually, it takes dramatic episodes of workplace injuries or wildlife poisonings, combined with rigorous scientific proof of harm and public outcry, before the government will act to restrict or ban any chemical. And that is no accident. The current regulatory system allows synthetic chemicals into our lives unless proven beyond doubt to be dangerous. Terms Dioxins are not intentionally manufactured. They are unintentionally formed as byproducts of chemical processes involving chlorine, such as the manufacture of pesticides and the bleaching of paper. The manufacture and incineration of plastics such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC, commonly used in consumer product packaging and medical devices) is another major source of dioxin. Two of the most serious health effects of dioxin exposure are cancer and endocrine disruption. The endocrine system is a complex network of glands and hormones that regulate many of the body's functions including growth, development, and maturation, and the way various organs operate. The endocrine glands –- including the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, thymus, pancreas, ovaries, and testes – release carefully-measured amounts of hormones into the bloodstream that act as natural chemical messengers, traveling to different parts of the body in order to control......

...Executive Summary Planning for future network expansion requirements is essential to uninhibited company growth. The first diagram included shows the original company network design of 10 workstations connected to a single stackable switch. Business growth depends in part upon the company Internet web server and database server. The network’s initial flat topology, with workstations and servers connecting in a peer to peer fashion using a single ADSL line for Internet access was very limited. However, the current stackable network switch design has enabled IT staff to upgrade network infrastructure in order to keep up with company growth. The stackable design has provided no negative impact during upgrades to the 100 workstation network along with deploying services required to maintain an efficient, secure networkin which Active Directory with single sign-on, DNS, DHCP, and file sharing have replaced the former peer to peer design. Currently the company is risking potential data loss along with performance issues directly related to the network working at maximum capacity. The good news is that our company growth has exceeded network capability. So, in consideration of the company’s success and growth rate, and 100 personnel in the new remote office, the company network should move to a three-layer hierarchical model. The three-layer model will result in increased network performance, redundancy, and scalability that can accommodate continuing sustained company growth.......

...technical terminology. As a result, there are usually communication disconnects between technical and business staff. Business Capacity Management This is the highest level approach to Capacity Management. Instead of aggregating usage and performance into IT services, we aggregate into business processes. This approach looks at capacity positions across the IT infrastructure components supporting and sustaining Business services.

There is a lot of value in employing a business-oriented approach. Results are expressed in business terms so all understand. Conversations are transformed from ones of expense to ones of business investment. Reaching this level should be any organizations long term goal. Art or Science? The arguments over whether Capacity Management is an art or science have been raging for years. Having been employed in a capacity management role for many years, I tend to think it is a combination of both. The science comes into play when collecting and analyzing data, and transforming it into information. Scientific methodologies......

...Career Choice: Network and Computer Systems Administrator Business and Writing for the IT Professional July 26, 2009 Abstract A network and systems administrator is responsible for network security, installing new applications, implementing software updates, monitoring the integrity of the system, developing management programs, and performing routine backups. As has been noted throughout my research, there has been a decline in technology majors throughout the past couple of years, thus affecting the job market. The survey that was conducted on high school seniors, as well as research done by some universities, has proven that lack of information and interest affects this type of career choice. By properly informing potential technology students and offering them resources, we can better equip our future system and network administrators to perform to their potential. Topic Proposal Author Background An interest in computers came to my attention shortly after graduating from high school. I first involved myself in working with cameras and fixing them for several customers. The satisfying knowledge that I gained came from realizing that I could take apart, fix a piece of technology and do it well. Computers as a hobby came only after my brother gave me one to fix and keep for my use. Although I was daunted at first, I took apart and drew diagrams, to remember where the components where located. I had no previous experience from computers that I had learned...

...Police Unlawfulness in Unmarked Public Vehicles name ITT Technical Institute Author Note For additional information please -address Abstract I propose that under RCW 46.08.065 all police in publicly owned vehicles whom do not adhere this law are dealt with in a lawful manner. Police officers have been known to pull people over in unmarked vehicles which is illegal in Washington State with small exceptions. If everyday citizens are punished to the extent of the law, so should police officers. Laws in the U.S. tend to exempt a lot of public officials, this should not be ignored. Police Unlawfulness in Unmarked Public Vehicles Understanding Law enforcement officers are paid a good deal of tax money to do their job. Keeping the law enforcement officer’s honorable and honest falls to the state, city and county of which they perform their duties. By recording and fallowing through each illegal activity performed by on duty police officers including giving citations in unmarked vehicles Public Servants Police officers are considered to be by law public servants. If police are performing duties outside of the given law, they are no longer considered public servants and should be handled accordingly. Better training and knowledge of the law would help public servants acquire a better knowledge base for performing their jobs duties. Law training. It has been proven that law enforcement officers with better classroom and hands on training are more successful. If police...

...article. The relevance is that these two groups (Palestinian’s and Israeli’s) have a very sensitive past. Communicating back and forth using virtual-humans is fascinating, because we want to see the difference between traditional Face-to-Face and digital contact (mimicry technology) from a distance. After a series of tests, what the reporters have found, was that using mimicry technology (technology that mimics behavior) increased the levels of empathy one showed toward each other rather than the traditional method of Face-To-Face method. This is a profound discovery because this can really influence world peace treaties worldwide and also use technology to develop third world countries simply by the new increase in demand for upgrading systems and networks globally to run the newer technology. The reason this is important to upgrade technology all over the world, is if this science truly works, we can produce more peace and less destruction over time leaving more money for construction rather than destruction. The end result was that mimicry technology works with hostile groups when it comes to communicating amongst each other more peacefully. This communication style increases empathy towards one another and therefor results in more peaceful behaviors. I personally believe it is because by communicating digitally it would not be such a treat VS. Standing in a warzone making very important life-altering decisions with armies all around.

...From: System Administrator To: Manager Per your request for a logical system to put into place for your support issues, Listed below are my Recommendations’. Manager Escalation Process for Service Desk Tickets and Incidents Manager Escalation Process Definition This process provides supervisors and managers (or VP/Dean-designated point person) the means for requesting urgent responses (beyond the planned SLA) to specific, previously-submitted Service Desk tickets. 1. Supervisor/manager (or VP/Dean-designated point person) submits a ticket in the Service Desk ticketing system. 2. This is outside of the automated SLA-defined escalation process (in planning stage). Assumptions 1. The user and the user's supervisor/manager have reviewed and understand the planned SLA-defined response times before initiating an escalation request. 2. The user and the user's supervisor/manager will not abuse the escalation process by inflating routine requests or inappropriately classifying them as urgent. Process flow with built-in (SLA-driven) escalation 1. User submits a Service Desk ticket via email, web, chat or voicemail. A ticket is assigned to a team or agent for response/resolution. 2. The Service Desk system automatically escalates the ticket if it is not responded to within two days. 3. Notices of escalations are sent to the respective ITS manager for follow-up. Process flow with supervisor/manager initiated escalation Process begins as outlined above (Steps 1...
