Facebook Security Checkup is Here

The Security Checkup tool Facebook began testing in May has now been rolled out for all users, with prompts to begin appearing atop News Feeds “over the next few weeks.”

The social network announced that it was testing Security Checkup in May, in a note on the Facebook Security page by site integrity product manager Melissa Luu-Van, who also penned a Newsroom post Thursday confirming its rollout.

She wrote that Security Checkup is currently available globally on desktop, with mobile to follow “soon,” and she offered an overview of how the tool works:

Sometime over the next few weeks, you’ll see a reminder at the top of your News Feed. Click “Get Started” and follow the prompts through three easy steps.

Yelp in ‘Death Spiral’ after earnings report, Chairman steps down

Death Spiral

On March 4, 2014, Yelp shares closed at $98.04 a share.

On Wednesday, the stock was trading at $24.

This 75% collapse has come quickly and furiously.

Just over a year ago, Goldman said its clients were asking when the “party was going to end” as shares of companies like Yelp and Facebook exploded higher during the first half of 2014.

For Facebook, the party hasn’t stopped. For Yelp, the party is definitely over.

In an email on Wednesday, Eric Jackson, a prominent tech investor, said that Yelp looks like it’s currently in a “death spiral” and that it’s hard to see how the company can pull itself out from here.

On Tuesday night, Yelp reported earnings that were a disappointment, but what really seems to be spooking investors, at least in Jackson’s view, is the resignation of Yelp chairman Max Levchin from the company’s board.

Move Over, Coconuts: Watermelon Water Is The Way To Hydrate

Watermelons consist of naturally purified water, electrolytes and other essential nutrients: In other words, they’re just itching for a run through a cold press. Hydrating has never been more…well, logical! The fact of the matter is that watermelons are hardy as all get-out. They grow best and sweetest where it’s dry (not wet, as some assume), and they grow rampant — so rampant, in fact, that 800 million pounds of watermelon go unused in America every year. Seeing as 92 percent of watermelon is pure water, that’s a prime juicing material bounty. And harvest they do — the good folks at new beverage company WTRMLN WTR are snatching up every unused melon they can get their hands on.

I went to the brand’s headquarters in New York City’s Flatiron District — I actually walked there in order to work up a hearty summer thirst — to chat with cofounder and CEO Jody Levy and her bustling team of watermelon elves. Just kidding, that’s not how it works.

Boeing developing a spyware carrying drone to latch onto WiFi networks

The next frontier in hacking could soon be in the skies.

A subsidiary of aircraft-maker Boeing, which specializes in unmanned aerial vehicles, is apparently working on a drone capable of delivering spyware to unsuspecting devices below.

The project involves Insitu, a Boeing-owned company that specializes in drones, and Hacking Team, the Italian firm that develops surveillance technology.

Hacking Team was recently hacked itself, which is apparently how the details of the Boeing project came to light.

The blueprint for this aerial spyware project says excitedly: “develop a way to infect computers via drone. One engineer is assigned the task of developing a mini infection device, which could be ‘ruggedized’ and ‘transportable by drone (!)'”, T3 translated.

If these plans were successfully carried out, drones would also be able to fetch spyware-carrying devices, latch onto Wi-Fi networks and release surveillance codes into a device of a suspect sipping on an espresso at Starbucks.

These plans were in the early budding stages, and there is no clear customer yet.

By foraging other Hacking Team information that was released in WikiLeaks, researchers and journalists recently also discovered a plan that involves spyware dressed up as an Android app bypassing Google Play’s app restrictions.

Soda Is as Unhealthy as We Thought

Studies confirming that soda really is as bad for us as we think continue to pile up—so, hey, here’s one more.

Daily Soda Increases Heart Attack Risk >>>

In the first-ever study to establish a direct link between sugar-added sodas and heart-disease risk, UC Davis reports that subjects who downed drinks with low, medium, and high amounts—read: any amount—of high-fructose corn syrup for two weeks raised their (heart-damaging) blood levels of LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol and triglycerides.

And though another UC Davis study found that sugary beverages can relieve stress by blunting cortisol, it also found that stress relief was actually just the start of an unhealthy cycle: Stress ➝ drinking soda ➝ relief ➝ more stress ➝ more soda, which led to weight gain. So hardly a ringing endorsement.

ReTweeters Of A Copyrighted Photo being sued

By now we should all know that taking someone’s photo and uploading it to social media is not cool (and not legal either). But what happens when you retweet or pin or share a photo that someone else stole? An interesting casenow presented to the courts of California may change how easily you retweet photos forever.

California based photographer Dennis Flaherty is suing beverage company Big Red Soda for allegedly posting one of his photos to social media without his permission. Nothing new here. If this is indeed the case, Dennis would probably have a walk in the park in court. What’s more interesting is that Dennis is also suing every single person who retweeted or pinned the photo.

How to eloquently explain gaps on a resume

Like the glaring Fs on the report card of the adult world, resume gaps are viewed as imperfections on our work record. It happens to the best of us. One day you’re working, and the next day you’re sitting at home wondering, “What’s next?”

Maybe your gap is due to layoffs, or perhaps you decided you couldn’t take a certain aspect of your job anymore. Either way, they can be tough both while you’re in them and when you have to explain them to an employer. But if you use your time between jobs wisely, it can make you a more competitive candidate.

Why you’ve got to be honest

It can be tempting to embellish your resume just a bit to scrub away those periods of time when you were out of work. You may try to rationalize it by telling yourself that it was only a few months, or that the recruiter will never find out. But in reality, recruiters can and often do find out — which burns a bridge for you immediately. Just play it safe and tell the truth.

Remember, you’re interviewing for more than just a paycheck. You’re interviewing for a lasting relationship with an employer; a relationship that should be built on trust from both parties. Start out the relationship by lying, and it probably won’t go much further than chatting with the recruiter.

Food Tastes Better When You’re Drunk, New Study

What tastes better than a greasy cheeseburger after a night of drinking? A greasy cheeseburger, an entire pizza, and more beer.

In case you wondered why you were always plagued by the drunchies every Friday night at 3am, science is giving you a legitimate answer. According to a new study from Indiana University’s School of Medicine’s Departments of Medicine and Neurology, food actually tastes better when you’re drunk.

Led by William JA Eiler II, PhD, researchers selected 35 non-smoking, non-vegetarian women of average weight to participate in the study, and had them come in for two visits. On the first day, participants were given alcohol and the second, a placebo.

From there is where the magic happened. According to Vice,

Then, the women were exposed to food and non-food aromas, and their brain responses were measured using MRI scans. After enjoying (or perhaps not enjoying) the various smells, the subjects were offered a lunch of either “pasta with Italian meat sauce” (ahem, we think they mean Bolognese) or beef with noodles.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, as anyone with a penchant for late-night mac and cheese-making knows, about two-thirds of the tipsy crew ate more than the placebo group. (Noodles do make a delightful drunk snack.) One possible explanation for this difference was revealed in the brain scans: the hypothalamus, which controls metabolism, was more responsive to the food smells after the women were intravenously dosed with booze.

While the study is the first of its kind, it didn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know. Bring on the alcohol and bring on the greasy food!
