Most people hate making decisions. Why is that? They overcomplicate it. Cybercrime in the DeepWeb Earlier, we published a blog post talking about the recent shut down of the Silk Road marketplace. There, we promised to release a new white paper looking at cybercrime activity on the Deep Web in more detail. This paper can now be found on our site here. While the Deep Web has often been uniquely associated with The Onion Router (TOR), in this paper we introduce several other networks that guarantee anonymous and untraceable access — the most renowned darknets (i.e., TOR, I2P, and Freenet) and alternative top-level domains (TLDs), also called “rogue TLDs.”

Perfectionism, Procrastination, and Distress Excessive concerns about making mistakes, pernicious self-doubt, harsh self-criticism, impossibly high standards or expectations for performance, a strong and chronic tendency to evaluate one’s performance as not measuring up to levels expected by oneself or others - these are features of maladaptive perfectionism that predict psychological distress. In a longitudinal study across the semester of a sample of predominantly female undergraduate students, Kenneth Rice, Clarissa Richardson, and Dustin Clark from the University of Florida examined the relations between measures of perfectionism, procrastination, and psychological distress. They explored a number of different potential models that might explain the relation among these variables, with a particular emphasis on a model where perfectionism leads to more procrastination that increases psychological distress. Interestingly, this isn’t what they found.
Deep Web Research 2012 Bots, Blogs and News Aggregators ( is a keynote presentation that I have been delivering over the last several years, and much of my information comes from the extensive research that I have completed over the years into the "invisible" or what I like to call the "deep" web. The Deep Web covers somewhere in the vicinity of 1 trillion plus pages of information located through the world wide web in various files and formats that the current search engines on the Internet either cannot find or have difficulty accessing. The current search engines find hundreds of billions of pages at the present time of this writing. In the last several years, some of the more comprehensive search engines have written algorithms to search the deeper portions of the world wide web by attempting to find files such as .pdf, .doc, .xls, ppt, .ps. and others. This Deep Web Research 2012 report and guide is divided into the following sections:
25 Things to Remember When Life Gets Rough Email “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. Because it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” Choose the Right Words in an Argument - Amy Gallo When addressing a conflict with a colleague, the words matter. Sometimes, regardless of how good your intentions are, what you say can further upset your coworker and just make the issue worse. Other times you might say the exact thing that helps the person go from boiling mad to cool as a cucumber. So, when things start to heat up with a colleague — you don’t see eye-to-eye on a project or you aren’t happy with the way you were treated in a meeting, for example — how can you choose your words carefully? To help answer this question, I talked with Linda Hill, the Wallace Brett Donham Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and faculty chair of the Leadership Initiative.
Find Your Purpose Within Minutes We live in a society that for thousands of years has judged you on how you look and on “what you do for a living”. When I say what you do for a living, what I mean is what you do to make money. Most people think that money allows a certain level of freedom and abundance in their lives therefore most people look for jobs that won’t necessarily make them happy in the moment but will be the most tolerable while bringing in the most income long term from their place in society. I want to say that I do not have the belief that money is the only way to happiness. I will also say that in my opinion, I think it is also perfectly fine to enjoy monetary abundance. The problem comes in when people start to depreciate their personal value just because they aren’t making a certain income or have certain material possession or educational requirements.
Nik Cubrilovic - Analyzing the FBI’s Explanation of How They Located Silk Road. The marketplace was hosted as a hidden service on Tor, a distributed network that provides a layer of anonymity for web and other traffic on the internet. Edward Snowden’s leaks revealed that the NSA target Tor users and that the agency has struggled to deanonymize users on the network. One of the big outstanding issues was how the FBI managed to uncover the real IP address of the server hosting the Silk Road. The indictment is intentionally vague on the details of how the server was discovered, and the issue is important since a large number of users (numbering in the millions) rely on the Tor software network to protect their identity. Last month Ulbricht’s lawyers filed a motion seeking to uncover details on how the FBI located the server. The core of the issue for the defense is if the FBI violated Ulbricht’s Fourth Amendment right to privacy in tracking down the server IP address by using any unlawful techniques or a method that would have required a warrant.
