Home Security Tips When You live Off Campus


by qnr

Getting an apartment with some friends off campus is definitely one of the highlights of college as it is one of the first moments when you can feel entirely independent and truly feel like an adult. Chances are it will be your first time living on your own and as such it is important that you take a few added home security precautions in order to make sure that you and your friends are safe at all times. Because you will not be under the care of university housing anymore, it is important that you are vigilant about your own safety and security.

 

For starters, it is important that you are very selective about who you live with and that you know and trust them. Not only will you be sharing a space with them but they will be bringing in friends and it is critical that you trust their choice of friends and social acquaintances. For your safety and that of your housemates be sure to have a house meeting to discuss the importance of maintaining a certain level of home security and ensuring that your housemates and you only bring trusted friends into the home as strangers would compromise the safety of everyone in the home.

 

Also be sure to invest in a home alarm system if you don’t already have one so that you and your housemates will feel safe knowing that you have a system of protection in place to guard against forced intrusion or unwanted entry. Be sure that only you and your housemates know the code so that your safety is not compromised and make certain that everyone in the home uses the alarm so that you can be certain that in the event of an emergency, the proper help will be on the way. It is still possible to have fun and enjoy your independence while still managing to keep a safe and secure home.

 

Also, be sure to lock the doors and windows every night even if you feel that you live in a safe neighborhood or that it is heavily populated with students. You can never be too certain and it is better to err on the side of caution than to take any chances. Be sure that you all respect each others privacy and space and try not to be the one always mentioning the issue of home security so that there is more of a unanimous feel in the home and that there is harmony. Most of all, enjoy the independence and freedom that living off campus affords and explore the city or town that you live in from a vantage point other than just that of the student life. Chances are, there is a lot that the city has to offer culturally apart from the bars and nightclubs that students frequent. By following these simple tips you should be able to enjoy your newfound freedom without having to worry about your safety.

Look into an adt Home Alarm for an affordable option of how you can protect your home. Also, check out securitychoice.com for great ways to protect your home.

The Social Security Revolt of 2011

The Social Security Revolt of 2011

The Federal Reserve is on a slow march to oblivion. The credibility of the hollow men erodes further with each passing day. The mystery has faded, the magic gone. Only incompetence and ineptitude remain.

In some respects, the head of the Federal Reserve can be viewed as a sort of Witch Doctor, or Shaman. When the Shaman’s powers are perceived as strong, all is well. The masses can take quiet comfort in the fact that someone is “in control.”

But when the Shaman’s powers erode — or ultimately get exposed, like the man behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz — outrage and fear quickly follow. Outrage at the sudden loss of comfort (never mind the bald deception laid bare)… and fear at the realization that no one is truly on top of things.

For the Federal Reserve, the masses are realizing two truths:

The Fed has one solution for every ailment — printing money.
In this case, it is the wrong solution to the wrong problem.

The hollow men are the ultimate example of the old saw, “To the man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” The hammer of Quantitative Easing (QE) is useless. And the more honest of the Fed Heads know it full well.

Says Richard Fisher, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas:

In my darkest moments, I have begun to wonder if the monetary accommodation we have already engineered might even be working in the wrong places… A great many baby boomers or older cohorts who played by the rules… are earning extremely low nominal and real returns on their savings.

Further reductions in rates earned on savings will hardly endear the Fed to this portion of the population…

The comments are excerpted from a recent speech of Fisher’s to the New York Association for Business Economics. (It is common for Fed officials to air their views through prepared remarks.)

Let us now translate those comments into layman’s English. By way of monetary accommodation “working in the wrong places,” Mr. Fisher worries that the Fed has jacked up the wrong asset prices.

Flooding the system with liquidity has helped out the banksters, and provided a windfall to rich corporations with the ability to launder their profits through offshore subsidiaries, yet helped the average Main Street saver not at all.

Mr. Fisher then openly worries, quite rightly, that the Fed’s plan to keep interest rates near zero adds insult to injury, as retirees with savings accounts are forced to get by on table scraps.

Worse still is the Fed’s embrace of what Doug Kass calls “screwflation,” as in, price hikes in all the areas that completely screw over the middle class. When your grocery bill doubles but your paycheck shrinks, that’s screwflation. When your heating bill goes up 50% while your money market account earns zero, that’s screwflation.

And as we have pointed out repeatedly in these pages (sans the use of Kass’ term), “screwflation” is exactly what the Fed aims to deliver another heaping helping of via “QE2″… with no clear insight as to how printing more money will actually create jobs, help pay down debt, or otherwise kickstart an economy that is ailing for reasons wholly OTHER than “a lack of liquidity.”

The hollow men are focused on the wrong problems. But they cannot fix the genuine problems, so they don’t care.

Social Security: The Straw That Breaks The Camel’s Back?

The real risk here for the Federal Reserve is a backlash that leads to historical political change.

It is possible, at least in theory, for congress to audit the Fed, or even to threaten the Fed’s independence. This has always been “possible” but “not bloody likely,” due to the huge ramifications such a challenge would entail.

But if the Fed messes up badly enough, and people get boiling mad enough, congress really could respond to the white-hot rage of its constituents.

And when it comes to throwing rocks at a hornet’s nest, few issues stand out like Social Security. As the Washington Post reports,

For the second year in a row, the nearly 54 million retirees and other Americans who receive Social Security benefits will not get any cost-of-living increase in 2011 in their monthly checks, government officials announced… renewing debate over whether the system offers enough help in a weak economy.

The absence of any growth in Social Security checks for consecutive years is unprecedented in the 31/2 decades that payments have been adjusted automatically based on the nation’s inflation rate.

For 35 years, social security payments have always gone up. For last year and this year, they will not. Why? Because the official government statistics say there is no inflation.

Of course, the stats can say there is no inflation because food and energy prices are deliberately left out. There is “no inflation” for people who do not eat food, heat their homes, or drive a car. For the rest of the masses, and particularly retirees, there is the “screwflation” Doug Kass has talked about… and Social Security deliberately does not measure this.

Recognizing how ugly this looks, the Democrats have floated the idea of a special 0 “bonus” to the country’s fifty-million-plus Social Security recipients. House speaker Nancy Pelosi has “promised to schedule a vote,” according to the New York Times, and President Obama has “endorsed the payment.” But this is merely a sop.

What the pols in Washington must hope is that the public does not wake up. The average taxpayer was ripped off six ways from Sunday over the course of the bank bailouts; now, thanks to “QE2” — and possibly QE three, four, five, and so on — the average retiree is set to get raked over the coals too.

We are being bled dry, for the sake of fat cats and slick corporations who pay an effective tax rate of less than 3 percent — if they pay any tax at all. (Bloomberg recently estimated that Google’s tax-dodging efforts are worth 0 per share, to the expense of U.S. taxpayers with no Irish or Dutch subsidiary.)

At some point, seniors and savers will have to say “enough is enough.” It is just a question of how much they get squeezed before they do. If “QE2” goes badly wrong, 2011 could be the year the wheels come off the bus.

Are you sure your restaurant point of sale can pass the credit card PCI security audit?

Are you sure your restaurant point of sale can pass the credit card PCI security audit?

The credit card industry came down hard on many restaurants that have not sufficiently protected the credit card data of their customers from potential theft, with Visa, MasterCard and financial institutions that process electronic payment over recent months sending warnings letters and holding seminars. Moves like this aims at forcing restaurants to take actions on how to further safeguard their diners’ credit card information.

According to companies that process card transactions, there are thousands of restaurants that are not complying with the security rules set by the credit card industry.  For as long as a food service establishment takes plastic, they are required to follow a set of security regulations instituted by Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

With the data recorded by Visa indicates that since January of 2005, around 40% of incidents in which criminals gained unauthorized access to credit card information was made up of restaurants — provides the largest percentage of incidents for a merchant category.

Separately, there are reports from a Chicago-based data security auditor, AmbironTrustWave, for merchants that 62% of the security violations it witnessed during the prior 18 months occurred in the restaurant industry.

The violations involved different kinds of security lapses such as poorly guarded wireless networks — which enable thieves to access information from the parking lot using a laptop — and the lack of strictness to their systems that make it possible for unethical employees to grab credit card information.

Oftentimes, consumers have no clue when their credit card information is in danger. Although, not all security breaches succeeds, and most merchants do not acknowledge these incidents unless there’s a significant probability that a major fraud has already been identified or about to take place. Also, credit card issuers usually do not close a customer’s account unless fraud has taken place.

Restaurateurs may have a tough time with credit card security rules, since its regulations can be very difficult for small merchants. Hearing from the restaurant owners who thought they complied with rules, the National Restaurant Association trade group found out their systems were not functioning properly and were penalized.

Over 0,000, in some cases, is the fine for restaurants that violated credit card industry rules by keeping credit card information. Visa fined merchants across all categories .6 million for security violations in 2006, an increase from the .4 million in fines the previous year.

Visa, believes a merchant group needs additional attention, held special security briefings with several hundred restaurants.

At the same time, the companies that process credit cards have also turned the heat on restaurants. These companies have threatened to end services to those that do not follow security regulations.

Credit card companies are especially worried about specialized software restaurants use, which combine such features as tabulating bills, delivering orders to the kitchen and tracking reservations. Since credit card companies cannot require software makers to abide by their security rules, they instead apply pressure to restaurants. Visa maintains a list on its Web site of software programs that meet its requirements.

But software makers that even with the best software, restaurants can still be in a lot of trouble if they have a weak password protection or firewalls. Software companies say it is not up to them to let restaurateurs know what they must do to be in compliance with credit card rules.

Security rules on credit cards for restaurants

The credit card industry has been coming down hard on thousands of restaurants that have not fully protected diners’ credit card data from potential theft, with Visa, MasterCard and financial institutions that process electronic payment over recent months sending warnings letters and holding seminars. Moves like this aims at forcing restaurants into taking more action when it comes to protecting their diners’ credit card info.

According to companies that process card transactions, there are still tens of thousands of food service establishments that do not comply with the set of security rules of the credit card industry.  For as long as a food service establishment takes plastic, they are required to follow a set of security regulations instituted by Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

Best answer:

Answer by Adrian
You log into the router and clear those settings. Or, you reset the router back to factory defaults and re-configure it, including the wireless sections.

Al router administration should be done via a wired connection, not wired, especially if playing around with the wireless – it will disconnect if changed…
