How Well Do You Know Your Ancient History?

persepolis-1548875_1920Which ancient world empire cared more for its citizens, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia or Rome? This empire was known for protecting the religious freedoms of its people.  There were laws to protect persons suffering from physical and mental injury.  This world power guarantees that business transactions are impartial for both the rich and the poor. They were laws against cruelty to animals and the way the land was cultivated. The family was also protected from any unfair treatment from other members, for instance there were laws defending women’s rights and the fair treatment of their children in the case of inheritance after a divorce. Medical practices were monitored by the government, insuring good health. The military valued soldier’s rights and women could and did serve as generals in this empire’s army and navy. To assure control and respect for these laws lawyers and judges were appointed for all of its citizens.

This empire was so proud of their treatment to its peoples that one of their main religious motto was, “Good thoughts, good words and good deeds.”

Does this sound like the country where you live today? Once this nation succumbed to the next more powerful empire, it took thousands of years before these basic human rights became available to the general population for most of our modern world.

So, do you know which ancient world empire cared more for its citizens, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia or Rome? Thomas Faraday would find out first hand when he traveled back in time to this mighty world power. He would also find out that despite the people’s pursuit of “Good thoughts, good words and good deeds,” corruption and evil still loomed between the rocks.

Is Your Password Secure?

password-2271736_1920Our password is the last line of defense regardless of what we are trying to protect. In the news we sometimes hear of passwords being hacked. The word hack is many times loosely used. We might think someone cracked our password when in reality it was probably written down in a cloud server available for someone to steal.

What are your password habits? Is your password secure?

Imagine your password is “crocodile,” it would take only two minutes with a common home computer to crack. What if you change some of the characters in the same password? For instance, “Cr0c@D1le,” you’re using the same password so it’s easy to remember yet it would take 4 weeks to crack. Most hackers don’t have that much time. Now add a memorable date, “Cr0c@D1le1985.”

Wow, 3 million years. I guess it’s safe to say it’s uncrackable.

Test your password here but don’t use your real password, just in case.

Physicists from Michigan Technological University are looking for Time Travelers on Social Media

twitter-292994_1920Imagine you are like Thomas Faraday, given an opportunity to travel in time. Once you’ve arrived, how would you communicate with our century? If your space ship or other time traveling device permits communication back and forth, then you’re okay but what if this is not an option?

As Thomas and friends would eventually find out, it’s not an easy task. But if you’re traveling into the future, then you may have technology we today are not aware of. You might be able to send messages back in time through certain Social Media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter.

Sounds farfetched? Robert Nemiroff and Teresa Wilson, two researchers at Michigan Technological University suggest this could be possible.
