Ethos, Pathos, and Logos

Ethos, Pathos, and Logos
A General Summary of Aristotle's Appeals . . . The goal of argumentative writing is to persuade your audience that your ideas are valid, or more valid than someone else's. The Greek philosopher Aristotle divided the means of persuasion, appeals, into three categories--Ethos, Pathos, Logos. Ethos (Credibility), or ethical appeal, means convincing by the character of the author. Pathos (Emotional) means persuading by appealing to the reader's emotions. Logos (Logical) means persuading by the use of reasoning. Ethos, Pathos, and Logos. Logos (Greek for 'word') refers to the internal consistency of the message--the clarity of the claim, the logic of its reasons, and the effectiveness of its supporting evidence. Ethos (Greek for 'character') refers to the trustworthiness or credibility of the writer or speaker. [P]athos (Greek for 'suffering' or 'experience') is often associated with emotional appeal.

Out-of-date browser plug-ins are attractive targets for cybercriminals For example, Adobe Reader is installed in 83% of enterprise browsers, and 56% of those installations are out of date, according to the report, which is based on a review of enterprise web traffic flowing through Zscaler’s cloud-based web and email security product. “That is a huge attack surface….This is really what the attackers are going after”, commented Michael Sutton, vice president of research at Zscaler ThreatLabZ. The Blackhole exploit kit has picked up on this and includes a variety of payloads designed to target recent Adobe Reader vulnerabilities, the report noted. The State of the Web report also found that Apple iOS has taken the lead in the workplace, with 42.4% of the mobile device usage on corporate networks, followed by Blackberry with 40.2% and Android with 17.4%. Sutton, who is an author of the report, told Infosecurity that he believes that iOS is a more secure platform than Android. Also, Zscaler found that the JS/Crypted was the top virus signature blocked.

The Hacker Manifesto by +++The Mentor+++ Written January 8, 1986 Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"... Damn kids. They're all alike. But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? I am a hacker, enter my world... Mine is a world that begins with school... Damn underachiever. I'm in junior high or high school. Damn kid. I made a discovery today. Damn kid. And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. Damn kid. You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. Yes, I am a criminal. I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto.

Anonymous: From the Lulz to Collective Action Taken as a whole, Anonymous resists straightforward definition as it is a name currently called into being to coordinate a range of disconnected actions, from trolling to political protests. Originally a name used to coordinate Internet pranks, in the winter of 2008 some wings of Anonymous also became political, focusing on protesting the abuses of the Church of Scientology. By September 2010 another distinct political arm emerged as Operation Payback and did so to protest the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and a few months later this arm shifted its energies to Wikileaks, as did much of the world's attention. It was this manifestation of Anonymous that garnered substantial media coverage due the spectacular waves of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks they launched (against PayPal and Mastercard in support of Wikileaks). This difficulty follows from the fact that Anonymous is, like its name suggests, shrouded in some degree of deliberate mystery.

The Universal Packing List ARP spoofing A successful ARP spoofing (poisoning) attack allows an attacker to alter routing on a network, effectively allowing for a man-in-the-middle attack. ARP spoofing may allow an attacker to intercept data frames on a network, modify the traffic, or stop all traffic. Often the attack is used as an opening for other attacks, such as denial of service, man in the middle, or session hijacking attacks.[1] The attack can only be used on networks that use the Address Resolution Protocol, and is limited to local network segments.[2] ARP vulnerabilities[edit] The Address Resolution Protocol is a widely used communications protocol for resolving Internet layer addresses into link layer addresses. Anatomy of an ARP spoofing attack[edit] The basic principle behind ARP spoofing is to exploit the above-mentioned vulnerabilities in the ARP protocol by sending spoofed ARP messages onto the LAN.

How To Create Web Animations With Paper.js - Smashing Coding The Web is just starting to use animation well. For years, animated GIFs and Flash ruled. Text moved and flashed, but it was never seamless. The canvas element makes it possible to integrate drawings and animations with the rest of your page. Animations get more power and need less coding when you combine the canvas tag with higher-level libraries such as Paper.js71. Neat Is Easy, But Messy Is Hard Link Computers love clean. In the real world, even simple things are messy. For this article, we’ll animate dandelion seeds blowing in the breeze. Dandelions are tricky because we all know what they look like: we’ve touched them and blown their seeds off. (Image: Arnoldius4) Our dandelion animation will never reproduce the complexity of the real thing, and it will work better if we don’t try: make it too close to real and it will feel funny. Paper.js Link Drawing simple shapes with the canvas tag, without any special drawing libraries, is easy. Then add a little JavaScript. Drawing The Seeds Link
