A third emotional effect is the "fear of missing out" (FOMO), which is defined as the "pervasive apprehension that others might be having rewarding experiences from which one is absent." FOMO has been classified by some as a form of social anxiety. It is associated with checking updates on friends' activities on social media. Some speculate that checking updates on friends' activities on social media may be associated with negative influences on people's psychological health and well-being because it could contribute to negative mood and depressed feelings. Looking at friends' stories or posts of them attending parties, music festivals, vacations and other events on various social media applications can lead users to feel left out and upset because they are not having as much fun as others. This is a very common issue between young people using certain apps and it continues to affect their personal well-being.
In order for social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube to publish your content online, they must be issued a license from the copyright owners. A license is a legitimate right that allows them to carry out a specific task. Simply put, you grant each platform permission to use your content in accordance with their terms and conditions even if you control the stuff you submit to social media. Although each of these licenses differs differently from the others, they all give the social media sites permission to utilize your copyrighted work however they see fit. Theoretically, they could make commercial use of it and even sell or sublicense their license to a third party for that party's use; however, because each license specifically states that it is "royalty free" you would never earn a share of the revenue.
The signing took place at a meeting at the NATO headquarters in Brussels. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who presided over the event, said it was a "historic" moment for the alliance. "This is a good day for Finland and Sweden and a good day for NATO. With 32 nations around the table we will be even stronger and our people will be even safer as we face the biggest security crisis in decades," Stoltenberg said in his address. The breakthrough came after Turkey lifted its veto over the two Nordic countries' bid to join NATO last week, as the three nations agreed to protect each other's security. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned last week that Ankara could still block the process if Finland and Sweden fail to fully meet its demand to extradite "terrorism" suspects with links to outlawed Kurdish groups or the network of an exiled religious leader accused of a failed 2016 coup in Turkey. Finland and Sweden are also expected to lift their restrictions on selling weapons to Turkey.
Embedded (aka smart or IoT) devices are increasingly popular and becoming ubiquitous. Unsurprisingly, they are also attractive attack targets for exploits and malware. Low-end embedded devices, designed with strict cost, size, and energy limitations, are especially challenging to secure, given their lack of resources to implement sophisticated security services, available on higher-end computing devices. To this end, several tiny Roots-of-Trust (RoTs) were proposed to enable services, such as remote verification of device's software state and run-time integrity. Such RoTs operate reactively: they can prove whether a desired action (e.g., software update or program execution) was performed on a specific device. However, they can not guarantee that a desired action will be performed, since malware controlling the device can trivially block access to the RoT by ignoring/discarding received commands and other trigger events. This is an important problem because it allows malware to effectively "brick" or incapacitate a potentially huge number of (possibly mission-critical) devices. 2b1af7f3a8
