There is no rule that tells us how complex a password we are using. Common sense tells us that the more characters it has, and the more varied it is, the better, to avoid that nobody can break it through computer software: it must have numbers, lowercase letters, capital letters and, finally, some other character of those special calls.Everyone who is dedicated to security also stresses the importance of having several of these passwords and, if possible, with a complexity according to the significance of what we want to protect. That is, that on websites and services where we have registered payment methods, create the most armoured passwords possible and those where it is not possible to misuse our money, or get economic revenue, relax them with other simpler ones.

PARIS: France on Tuesday accused Iran of holding French Iranian academic Fariba Adelkhah only for political aims, after the judiciary upheld a five year jail sentence against her. Adelkhah, a prominent anthropologist specializing in Shia Islam, was arrested in Tehran on June 5, 2019, and has been held behind bars ever since. We condemn this decision by the Iranian authorities who persist in holding Mrs.Fariba Adelkhah only for political aims, in the absence of any serious evidence or fact, the foreign ministry said in a statement. We remain determined to secure the release of our compatriot, it added. In May Adelkhah had been ordered to serve five years in prison after being convicted on national security charges. Iran s judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili confirmed Tuesday that the sentence had been upheld. She will serve five years including time served since her arrest, Esmaili told journalists. The French foreign ministry said this could only have a negative impact on relations and substantially reduces the confidence between our two countries. A France based support committee for Adelkhah denounced the ruling as a parody of justice. It called for her release, especially given the spread of COVID 19 in Iran, with Adelkhah still weak after a 49 day hunger strike she waged from December to February. Relations between Tehran and Paris have deteriorated in the past year. Both were parties to the landmark 2015 nuclear deal. But last week, France was among the countries that passed a resolution at the UN s nuclear watchdog calling on Iran to clarify whether it had undertaken undeclared nuclear activities in the early 2000s a move condemned by the Islamic republic. Also Tuesday, the Iranian judiciary said that Iranian opposition activist Ruhollah Zam had been sentenced to death following his arrest last year. Zam, a refugee for several years in France, disappeared on a trip to Baghdad in October. Paris based Press rights group Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has accused Iran of abducting him in Iraq to face trial back home. TOKYO: Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi stressed that the Japanese government has supported and will continue to support a two state solution for Israel and Palestine, effectively rejecting Israel''s annexation plans for the West Bank.

Ann writes, This story was written first for enjoyment, but it took a turn to incorporate two important messages. The truth sets you free When we hide something from another, whether intentionally or not, it puts stress on you, and you have to keep covering the truth. As the medical field will tell you, stress is the number one killer. It cheats you out of days of your life prematurely. Your loves, your accomplishments, your family. My son has a habit of saying, Mom, you might as well know you ll find out anyway. "How true that statement is because one way, somehow, the truth always seems to surface. May God help you on a venture to always tell the truth despite how agonizing it might be or ugly. Once said, it can be dealt with and dismissed. God Bless you richly.
London UK , June 29 (ANI): The United Kingdom''s General Medical Council (GMC) has suspended the medical practice licence of a British Pakistani doctor after he claimed that Covid 19 was a conspiracy to control the world.The GMC, which maintains the official list of medical practitioners in the UK, has removed Dr Iqbal Adil''s reference number from its website, Geo News reported."This person has been suspended from the Medical Register and may not practise as a doctor in the UK," the website said, adding that he was neither on the General Practioner (GP) register nor the specialist one."This doctor is not subject to revalidation (as) only doctors holding full registration with a licence to practise are subject to revalidation," the website said.Dr Adil worked in the UK as a specialist in colorectal and emergency surgery and laparoscopy, having graduated from Bahauddin Zakaria University in Pakistan''s Multan city in 1986.The doctor has peddled various conspiracy theories about coronavirus on social media platforms and in online interviews, claiming that the virus "orchestrated by the elite and is indeed a hoax".So far, over 10 million people have been infected with Covid 19 worldwide, while the number of fatalities crossed the 500,000 mark, according to Johns Hopkins University.In an interview to a news outlet, Dr Adil said he had been working for the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK for almost 30 years and was dismissed because of political victimisation, according to Geo News.The doctor, in various social media posts and YouTube videos, claimed that a vaccine was not a cure for Covid 19 while physical distancing was of no help as well to combat the virus. Almost all of his controversial videos have been taken down by YouTube.Following the suspension of his medical practice license, the doctor set up a petition at Change.org, which has got over 300 signatures so far. It says that he "is Chairman of All Pakistan Medical Association and Global Nishtarian Organisation (GNO) with a large number of medical graduates worldwide"."Mr Adil has a family with 3 children to support. NHS UK need doctors to work. It would not be in the best interest of the public and health system to lose experienced and highly qualified surgeon like him," it added while stressing that it was "an injustice" to suspend his license over "his personal point of view on Covid 19"."We request to the GMC to revoke his unfair 12 months suspension ... and allow him fair chance to work in this country (for the benefit of) the health system, communities and medical graduates at large," the petition further states.

Delhi Diaries: Congress' resistance to build new leadership; the Press Information Bureau pushing the BJP narrativeIn the last six years, the personality driven diplomacy skills of the prime minister, Narendra Modi, have gained much attention. However, with bitterness seeping into India s relationship with China following the killing of 20 Indian soldiers at the border, the same approach has come to haunt Modi and his government. A video from 2015 is being circulated on social media in which the PM is heard talking about his extraordinary personal relationship with the Chinese premier, Xi Jinping, while addressing the Indian diaspora in Shanghai. In the video, Modi mentions having received a phone call from President Xi in 2014 after winning the general elections. Modi claimed that he was pleasantly surprised when Xi gave him a description of his birthplace, Vadnagar. Modi said Xi told him that he had read about Vadnagar in an account by the Chinese traveller, Hiuen Tsang, and added that after returning from Vadnagar to China, Hiuen Tsang had visited Xi s birthplace, Xian. Modi said Xi even took him to the latter s birthplace for a visit. Amid applause, the PM stressed that their conversation was proof of the affinity , intimacy and brotherhood between the two premiers. The same Xi has now turned into one of the most hated figures for the saffron brigade and this old video has turned into an embarrassment for the ruling party, which is desperately trying to counter it by flooding social media with charges of a warm relationship between the Nehru Gandhi family and the Chinese establishment.

Early on the morning of Monday, May 25, my husband and I got out of bed while the sky was still dark and drove to the beach. We are both fans of a good day trip, but due to the recent recommendations for the people in our state to stay in and stay safe from the coronavirus, we had not taken one in quite a while. My favorite form of exercise is walking, and I prefer to do it outside while enjoying fresh air and the many beautiful sights to see and experience throughout the area that I call home: the Pacific Northwest. I have countless pictures of the beautiful scenery and look at them repeatedly because they bring me so much joy. However, with so many parks and trails being closed as of late, exercising for the most part has had to be done inside of my house. So, sensing that I needed an outing of some kind, my husband asked: Do you want to get up at 2 a.m. one day during the Memorial Day weekend and drive to the beach to watch the sunrise? He was not even finished with his sentence before I yelled out a resounding Yes My husband and I are two of the extremely fortunate people who still have our jobs during the unprecedented rate of unemployment in this country and for this we are grateful. A few weeks before our drive to the beach, I d suggested that we take vacation time from our jobs to just have some time to relax and recharge because the stress of this very unsettling time in our country and in the rest of the world was definitely taking its toll on us. The Memorial Day weekend seemed like the perfect opportunity to get some extended time away from our regular routine so we both requested the day after Memorial Day as vacation time away from work. My plan was for us to nap a lot, watch movies, and eat some of our favorite meals since we still had to stay home however, my husband s idea of watching the sun come up while at the beach sounded like a perfect plan.

Alexis Hunley Link Copied The October 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake struck Northern California, where I then lived, shortly after I turned 11. It was not the biggest upheaval in my life that year my parents marriage had just ended but discovering that, on a random Tuesday afternoon, the ground could start shaking hard enough to knock you over was a pretty close second. In the days that followed, I was obsessed with news about the disaster, especially the deaths it had caused. For months afterward, to my older sister s embarrassment, I kept a weird little archive of newspaper and magazine coverage.Earlier this year, before COVID 19, before George Floyd s murder, before our lives slowed down and the news cycle sped up, I started thinking about how children respond to crises. In The Atlantic s May cover story, on rising rates of childhood anxiety disorders, I argued that even pre pandemic, various facts of contemporary American life had turned 21st century childhood into a petri dish for anxiety. By trying to protect our kids from all discomfort, researchers and clinicians repeatedly told me, parents were inadvertently preventing them from learning to tolerate the stresses and worries that are an inevitable part of life. And when people can t tolerate their anxious feelings, a large body of research shows, those feelings are more apt to metastasize into lasting mental health problems.
