Epic Privacy Browser

Epic Privacy Browser
https://epicbrowser.com/

The Epic Privacy Browser is first web browser built on Chromium (like Google’s Chrome browser) engineered to protect your privacy. Epic is in always-on “private browsing mode”, so on close of Epic all browsing data is deleted (while you’re browsing as little as possible is stored). Epic has removed all Google tracking and blocks hundreds of other companies from tracking you. If you turn on Epic’s encrypted proxy, you have protection from snooping by hackers, trackers, your ISP, government, and employer as well. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™.

LTI Resource Search

April 26, 2019

LTI Resource Search
https://www.imsglobal.org/resource-search

Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI®) Resource Search is a new standard which defines how to search digital repositories for a set of resources. It addresses searching learning object repositories (LORs), and other catalogs of learning resources, from learning tools using various attributes of resources and returning full metadata about the resources to the learning tools. Results can be launched either as URLs or LTI links. The benefit for an educator or student using the learning tool (such as a Learning Management System) is the seamless ability to search resource libraries for appropriate resources and transparent launching of those resources.

Overdose Death Rate – National Institute on Drug Abuse

April 25, 2019

Overdose Death Rate – National Institute on Drug Abuse
https://www.drugabuse.gov/related-topics/trends-statistics/overdose-death-rates

The U.S. government does not track death rates for every drug. However, the National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does collect information on many of the more commonly used drugs. The CDC also has a searchable database, called CDC Wonder. The figures above are bar charts showing the number or rate of U.S. overdose deaths involving select prescription and illicit drugs from 1999 through 2017. The bars are overlaid by lines representing gender or opioid involvement. There were 70,237 drug overdose deaths that occurred in the United States in 2017 (Figure 1), with 66% of cases among males (grey line). The main driver of drug overdose deaths were opioids―mainly synthetic opioids (other than methadone), with a 12.9-fold increase from 2007 to 2017 (Figure 2). Drug overdose deaths involving any opioid―prescription opioids (including methadone), synthetic opioids, and heroin―rose from 18,515 deaths in 2007 to 47,600 deaths in 2017; 68% of deaths occurred among males (Figure 3). From 2016 to 2017, the number of deaths involving prescription opioids remained unchanged (Figure 4) with a decrease reported for deaths involving prescription opioids without synthetic opioids. Overdose deaths involving heroin (Figure 5), psychostimulants (Figure 6) or cocaine (Figure 7) also rose in 2017; however, deaths involving heroin or cocaine were driven by deaths involving the combination of these drugs with synthetic opioids. Deaths involving psychostimulants rose independently from those in combination with synthetic opioids. The final two charts show the number of overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines (Figure 8) or antidepressants (Figure 9). Benzodiazepines were involved in 11,537 deaths in 2017. These were driven by the combination of these prescription drugs with any opioid. Deaths involving antidepressants are also rising, although at a much slower rate than benzodiazepines. As is the case with benzodiazepines, deaths involving antidepressants are mainly driven by those also involving synthetic opioids. This will be added to Healthcare Resources 2019 Subject Tracer™.

Secure Passwords 101: Why They Matter and How To Create Them

April 24, 2019

Secure Passwords 101: Why They Matter and How To Create Them
https://vpnmash.com/privacy/secure-passwords/

In this article, we’ll look at some of the most common data breaches, why you need to keep your passwords secure, as well as some password managers to help you store them. With all the tools out there to create strong passwords — and with all of the security breaches that have been in the news — you might think that young Americans would be more security conscious than older generations. That’s not necessarily true. According to the Americans and Cybersecurity study by Pew Research Center, 40% of U.S. adults who use the Internet have shared passwords with their friends and family. But when broken down by age group, only 25% of users over the age of 65 had shared their passwords, and 56% of users between ages 18-29 said they had. Americans aren’t necessarily using the latest technology either. According to the same study, only 12% said they used a password manager. Eighty-six percent relied purely on memory, while nearly half said they wrote their passwords down, and a quarter kept them saved on their computers. Here’s another alarming statistic: according to YouGov, twenty-six percent said they used the same password for most or all of their accounts. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™.

Schema – Promotes Schemas for Structured Data on the Internet
https://schema.org/

Schema.org is a collaborative, community activity with a mission to create, maintain, and promote schemas for structured data on the Internet, on web pages, in email messages, and beyond. Schema.org vocabulary can be used with many different encodings, including RDFa, Microdata and JSON-LD. These vocabularies cover entities, relationships between entities and actions, and can easily be extended through a well-documented extension model. Over 10 million sites use Schema.org to markup their web pages and email messages. Many applications from Google, Microsoft, Pinterest, Yandex and others already use these vocabularies to power rich, extensible experiences. Founded by Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Yandex, Schema.org vocabularies are developed by an open community process, using the [email protected] mailing list and through GitHub. A shared vocabulary makes it easier for webmasters and developers to decide on a schema and get the maximum benefit for their efforts. It is in this spirit that the founders, together with the larger community have come together – to provide a shared collection of schemas.
