“There is no question that our industry is rapidly changing, and both Cisco and the network are at the heart of the major market transitions underway. We believe that our long-term strategy, which is focused on delivering intelligent networks and technology and business architectures built on integrated products, services, and software platforms, is the right one to help our customers achieve their top priorities and fuel our success over the long run.” - John Chambers, Chairman and CEO To Our Shareholders, Reflecting on fiscal 2012, it was a year in which Cisco struck a balance between staying the course where appropriate, adjusting when needed, and continuing to reinvent ourselves. And what we are most proud of is that we did what we said we would do—we delivered for our shareholders, customers, and partners. There are a number of key takeaways from fiscal 2012. Cisco grew earnings per share at more than twice the pace of revenue for the fiscal year. We also positioned ourselves for the future in terms of product innovation and gaining market share across most of our categories, including those in which we were already leading. Additionally, we were able to pull away from many of our competitors by delivering unique value to customers and partners, for which we achieved exceptional customer and partner satisfaction levels. And we significantly improved shareholder value. Despite the macroeconomic challenges, including uncertainty in the European market and lackluster global public spending, that impacted many in our industry, fiscal 2012 was a very solid year for Cisco. ...
Are we alone in the universe? This question has long been controversial, but in recent years, more and more people have come forward to challenge this idea. Many people report that they have been contacted or abducted by alien beings--clearly not human-- from other planets or other dimensions. Abductees have become so numerous that there are even books, such as The Alien Abduction Survival Guide by Michelle LaVigne, to help abductees cope. Abductees and others insist that some type of nonhuman intelligence is interacting with and manipulating humans. Some "contactees" believe that these aliens are benign; however, many more people feel that humans are being invaded, physically and emotionally, by essentially unfeeling nonhuman beings. The controversy is fueled by the fact that much information about the aliens has been gleaned through hypnosis, used to override the amnesia abductees report. While there is much controversy and disagreement about the purpose of the aliens, there is more agreement about the types of aliens that are reported. As noted in Britannica Online, “[I]ntelligence need not necessarily be restricted to the same evolutionary path that occurred on Earth” (“Life”). Thus, there are scattered reports of reptilian aliens, tall red-headed aliens, and an assortment of essentially monster-type aliens. However, there are primarily three types of aliens that have been consistently reported in the United States. The first type of alien is the most commonly reported, the so-called "grays" or "small beings." These aliens are small, slight, but with large heads and huge insect-like eyes. This is the favorite depiction of science fiction, and this is the face that graces the front of the best-selling book Communion by Whitley Strieber. This, then, is the image most recognizable to people outside of the unidentified flying object (UFO) community. Pulitzer Prize winning author, John E. Mack, M.D., has investigated over 100 cases of alien abduction and reports: The small grays have large, pear-shaped heads that protrude in the back, long arms with three or four long fingers, a thin torso, and spindly legs . . . External genitalia, with rare exceptions, are not observed. The beings are hairless with no ears, have rudimentary nostril holes and a thin slit for a mouth . . . . By far the most prominent features are huge, black eyes which curve upward and are more rounded toward the center of the head and pointed at the outer edge. (37) The eyes have been the most consistently described feature of the aliens. While the report of skin color has varied from light gray to blue, almost everyone agrees on the eyes. In a famous case from 1962, Betty and Barney Hill remember a "missing time" episode, and under hypnosis, they both describe short alien beings with large eyes. Barney Hill, during his hypnosis session, repeatedly refers to the eyes: "Oh--oh, the eyes are there.

The Appthority® App Report for February 2013 provides an overview of the security risks behind 100 free iOS and Android apps. Appthority examined the differences between the Android and iOS app ecosystems; compared app behaviors across five popular app categories (business, education, entertainment, finance, games); and looked at the developers behind these apps. This report focuses on free mobile apps rather than paid apps. Free apps are more inclined to collect data on the user and share it with outside parties, such as ad networks or analytics companies, as a method of generating revenue. With no initial fee to download, free apps are also widely popular with consumers, who in turn bring those apps into the workplace. For this reason, Appthority analyzed the top 10 free apps across five common categories from the Apple App Store and Google Play. Appthority believes that the user should be armed with the knowledge of what apps actually do and have the choice to opt in to app permissions. Enterprises must also be aware of the risks posed by employee mobile devices when they’re used for work purposes. As employees bring new apps into the workplace, they’re putting company data, and the networks these devices access, at risk. Testing Methodology Appthority’s research team used the cloud-based Appthority Platform™ to perform static and dynamic app analysis on the 100 most popular apps. The company analyzed each app for particular behaviors within a test environment. These behaviors include sending and receiving data without encryption, location tracking, sharing data with advertising or analytics networks, accessing the user’s contact list or address book, and accessing the user’s calendar. From this internal data, the company identified the top security risks behind these mobile apps. Report Highlights ¬¬ The vast majority of free apps send and receive data to outside parties without encryption. ¬¬ 96% of total apps share data with advertising networks and/or analytics companies. ¬¬ 79% of the top 50 free iOS and Android apps are associated with risky behaviors or privacy issues. Overall, iOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps. ¬¬ Entertainment apps were the worst offenders out of the top five categories, with the highest number of ...

Under the terms of Article III of its Statute, the IAEA is authorized to establish or adopt standards of safety for protection of health and minimization of danger to life and property, and to provide for the application of these standards. The publications by means of which the IAEA establishes standards are issued in the IAEA Safety Standards Series. This series covers nuclear safety, radiation safety, transport safety and waste safety, and also general safety (i.e. all these areas of safety). The publication categories in the series are Safety Fundamentals, Safety Requirements and Safety Guides. Safety standards are coded according to their coverage: nuclear safety (NS), radiation safety (RS), transport safety (TS), waste safety (WS) and general safety (GS). Information on the IAEA’s safety standards programme is available at the IAEA Internet site http://www-ns.iaea.org/standards/ The site provides the texts in English of published and draft safety standards. The texts of safety standards issued in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish, the IAEA Safety Glossary and a status report for safety standards under development are also available. For further information, please contact the IAEA at P.O. Box 100, A-1400 Vienna, Austria. All users of IAEA safety standards are invited to inform the IAEA of experience in their use (e.g. as a basis for national regulations, for safety reviews and for training courses) for the purpose of ensuring that they continue to meet users’ needs. Information may be provided via the IAEA Internet site or by post, as above, or by e-mail to Official.Mail@iaea.org.
