Defending (and Duplicating) Your Data

Defending (and Duplicating) Your Data

Good digital hygiene really is its own form of civil defense.

  • Ask yourself 3 questions when strange emails arrive, and the answer is supposed to be yes to all of them: Is it from someone I know? Is it what I was expecting? Is it in the format I was expecting?
  • Use the 3-2-1 plan for backups: Three copies of any essential data in two different formats or types of storage media, with one of them in a cloud.
  • Update the operating systems on your devices, or better yet, enable automatic updates.
  • Write down, screenshot or photograph essential street addresses and phone numbers, just in case.

Dealing With Disruption: Preparations For Lights-Out Aftermath

Dealing With Disruption: Preparations For Lights-Out Aftermath

  • Flashlights for every person in the house, fresh batteries every so often, candles and matches, solar-powered sources for small devices, portable power stations, and backup generators if you can afford and find one. Not letting your car’s gas tank sit at half-empty or below is always a good idea, too.
  • Setting aside a small pile of emergency cash makes sense only if you will remember where you put it.
  • Share the location with someone you trust.
  • A few jugs of water are never a bad idea.

Stay calm. It’s easier to be calm if you’ve done a little bit of preparation.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
