Sometimes pictures are stronger than words. I am passing the popcorn on this campaign for the urgent need to address this issue. It is not only a student campus issue it is a social justice issue that needs to be addressed. Here are some fast facts from RAINN: The nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization

As commerce goes global and mobile – so does cybercrime
ThreatMetrix uncovers in its findings in today’s release of the company’s 2nd quarter report. Actual cybercrime attacks from April 2015 – June 2015 were detected by the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network (The Network) during real-time analysis and interdiction of fraudulent online payments, logins and new account registrations. What was alarming to this reporter at my first read of the report was the amount of big data review: More than one billion transactions per month, nearly a third of which originate from mobile devices. Yep, one third of mobile devices (mine included). In an earlier report, I had the pleasure to talk to Dean Weinert, Product Manager for the cybersecurity company. He gave my readers tips.
Big surprises that came out of the report is are two countries hit high marks out of the top five, India and Dominican Republic are the culprits compared to the usual suspects. Cybercriminals are targeting financial institutions and their sites are login and passwords. We should not forget lenders in this group.
Because I am a part of the media industry, this information caught my eyeballs. So take heed content creators: The media industry continues to be the primary target for fraudsters looking to access paid content, spam members and to test the validity of the stolen credentials. Modest sign-up and authentication requirements along with user password sharing across sites continue to attract the highest rate of cybercrime attacks per transaction. Criminals are increasingly using media sites to test the validity of stolen credentials. As such, the attack levels continue to be higher than other industries. The big driver of fraudulent transactions are people illegally accessing content outside of approved geographies combined with spamming and fraudulent account creation using bots. More than 15 million attacks were detected and stopped by the network during this period.
With that being said, cyber-crime is a well-tuned, well organized global phenom. Criminals are nimble, fast and clever. It has no boundaries but incentive to attack.The Network has the safeguard to deter such activity. To download the full report, go directly to this link.

Artificial intelligence, virtual reality and robotics engulfs the future trends and hails the influencers in the gaming and entertainment world. However, the Internet of Everything benchmark and ignite vertical market applications. The cool factor for me is the always anticipated event of the year: SIGGRAPH 2015. There will be many suits there, crafting deals, showing off their wear but one company will be donning another staple fashion for the gaming and entertainment industry and that is motion capture suit. The curtain opens August 9th through the 13th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Mitting for their success, I would like to showcase a company and a professional in the field, Synertial USA and Roger Nelson. Both will be in attendance at the convention, booth 254. The aforementioned hyperlinked references are influencers in their own right; street cred is evident here. Synertial formerly known as Animazoo, pioneered its product offering 20 years ago. Unique to its technology is these particular features optinerial, kinexact and the extra sensor network.
In a parallel universe is my professional colleague, Roger Nelson whose influence and expertise strikes in a myriad of innovation. His long list of credits in entertainment, new technology is a quiet and forceful dynamic but I would be remiss if I didn’t pen one of his accomplishment which are many of; I know if you are of a certain age, you will know about Q-Zar Laser tag arenas in the US. You may have donned this gear back in the day.
All animators know that the face and hands are probably the most intricate challenge you can create for any animated feature. One of the most attractive product offering is the IGS-Gloves have provided the most accurate finger capture to date, and can be synced to optical system data, so putting 2 rigid marker sets on a pair of 12-sensor gloves was just a matter of time. Compatible with the leading systems on the market, it keeps the time served by the optical systems while triggers a start & stop and the number of frames, and then manages a stack the final data at the end of the session.
Want to see Synertial IGS-Gloves 12 sensor synch with your system? For more information about this announcement, contact the company by contacting Roger Nelson at email@example.com

From the pristine Southern California city of Santa Monica, a double threat is hitting the streets. Southpaw (Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture), the soundtrack to The Weinstein Company motion picture of the same title will be released on July 24th at the same day the film hits theaters — via Shady Records/Interscope Records. Eminem serves as Executive Producer of the album, which includes two tracks from the multi-platinum rapper: the first single, “Phenomenal,” and “Kings Never Die,” featuring Gwen Stefani. Eminem also appears on two songs from his side project with Royce Da 5’9″, Bad Meets Evil. In addition, the soundtrack includes music from 50 Cent, The Weeknd, Action Bronson & Joey Bada$$, Slaughterhouse and more. In addition, the soundtrack includes two arrangements from the late James Horner, the Academy Award-winning composer (Titanic, Avatar) who scored the film and tragically passed away earlier this week. The complete track-listing for the soundtrack is below.
The film, directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and written by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy, The Shield), is the riveting story of Billy “The Great” Hope, the reigning light heavyweight boxing champion of the world (played by Academy Award nominee Gyllenhaal). Hope seemingly has it all, with an impressive career, a beautiful and loving wife (Rachel McAdams), an adorable daughter (Oona Laurence) and a lavish lifestyle. When tragedy strikes and his lifelong manager and friend (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) leaves him behind, Hope hits bottom, and turns to an unlikely savior at a local gym, Tick Willis (Forest Whitaker), a retired fighter and trainer to the city’s toughest amateur boxers. With his future riding on Tick’s guidance and tenacity, Billy enters the hardest battle of his life as he struggles with redemption and to win back the trust of those he loves.
