Urgent security update

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.

But this still means that the little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit.

This might be a good day to call in sick and take some time to change your passwords everywhere—especially your high-security services like email, file storage, and banking, which may have been compromised by this bug.

You’ll be hearing more in the news over the coming days. Take care.

El impedimento de salida a Juliana Deguis

Si realmente son alrededor de veinte mil personas las nacidas en territorio dominicano de padres extranjeros en situación migratoria irregular, como ha dicho la Junta Central Electoral, ¿ustedes verdaderamente creen que la patria está en peligro por reconocerles a estas personas y a su descendencia la nacionalidad dominicana que claramente les corresponde?

El verdadero peligro, con el que hemos vivido desde principios del siglo XX,  ha sido y es el flujo migratorio irregular desde Haití  hacia República Dominicana, sin control de ninguna especie, del cual nos hemos beneficiado todos, incluyendo empresarios, militares, políticos y sobre todo el gobierno dominicano, pues sin la mano de obra haitiana no se hubiese construido la República Dominicana que hoy conocemos.

First day of spring: Google Doodle celebrates the spring equinox

Also known as the vernal equinox, the 20 March is the first day of spring.

During an equinox, the Earth’s north and south poles are not tilted toward or away from the sun. This phenomena occurs twice a year: on 20 March and on 22 September.

English Heritage have confirmed that, weather permitting, Stonehenge will be open from the start of the equinox at 5:45am until 8:30am, to allow Druids and Pagans to gather and see the sun rise above the ancient stones, according the IB Times.

Druids and Pagans will celebrate the ancient Saxon goddess Eostre, who symbolises fertility and new beginnings.

1 Weekly Habit That Will Push You to Peak Performance

In 15 minutes a week, you can get closer to your optimal work life.

Most of us have the desire to be high-performing. The alternative is boredom and less personal pride. Entrepreneurs especially, with their names on the sign, aim high.

In the sports world, athletes create rituals and regulate how they live in order to increase their performance. Business people tend to make to-do lists and set goals — but not much else. I think that’s a lost opportunity. Entrepreneurs are no different than athletes: For both groups, peak performance requires attention, reflection, and a plan that goes beyond goal attainment. But because “working” is a daily function, it’s easy to assume great work performance is like the weather, where some days are 72 and sunny and others not so much, for no particular reason.
