HTTPS Everywhere HTTPS Everywhere is produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS. HTTPS Everywhere now uses the DuckDuckGo Smarter Encryption dataset, to enable even greater coverage and protection for our users.

home /us « Principe de Peter Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le principe de Peter, également appelé « syndrome de la promotion Focus », est une loi empirique relative aux organisations hiérarchiques proposée par Laurence J. Peter et Raymond Hull dans l'ouvrage Le Principe de Peter (1970)[1]. Selon ce principe, « dans une hiérarchie, tout employé a tendance à s'élever à son niveau d'incompétence » avec le corollaire qu'« Avec le temps, tout poste sera occupé par un employé incapable d'en assumer la responsabilité. » L'ouvrage de Peter et Hull est rédigé sur un ton satirique mais le principe qu'il expose a fait l'objet d'études universitaires étudiant sa validité par la modélisation ou par la confrontation à des cas réels, certaines concluant à sa validité complète ou partielle. Présentation de la thèse[modifier | modifier le code] Explication du principe[modifier | modifier le code] Ces dernières hypothèses ne sont qu'une interprétation non systématiquement retenue du principe de Peter. ↑ Laurence J.

Hachimaki army BrowserQuest Homefront Soundtrack review - PC Sumthing Else Music sent over the Homefront soundtrack for us to check out. The game, from THQ and developer Kaos Studios, is now available and I thought I would squeeze off this review. The Homefront soundtrack starts off with Stand your Ground from Matthew Harwood and Scott Cresswell. Cresswell did the vocals, guitar and bass on the song and it reminds me of a slightly updated version of the 80’s Transformers film soundtrack. From there the soundtrack moves on to 33 orchestrated tracks and range from tense, percussive, incidental music pieces to grander sounding pieces with prominent horns and strings and slower more emotion-provoking compositions. Back Yards , track 14, reminded me of a tune you would expect to hear as covert forces were moving into place as they set up for an attack against entrenched, superior odds. Take the Shot opens with a helicopter like sound and then quickly descends into a heartbeat like ambient piece.
