Donovan McNabb To Philly Fans How You Like Me

Donovan McNabb gets the last laugh with Philadelphia Eagles, sort of. Remember how the fans were happy to see him go, even though he had led the team to two NFC championships? Bet they would take those days now.“Making it to the NFC Championship is not easy, and I think they’re starting to see that right now, that getting to the playoffs and going to the NFC Championship consistently, it’s just not that easy,” McNabb said to ESPN “There are teams right now who have winning records, like the Atlanta Falcons. They’ve done it for so many years, and they get to the playoffs and all of a sudden they’re one-and-done.”The Eagles have struggled this season and have been eliminated from the playoffs, with Michael Vick and Nick Foles not providing the leadership at quarterback or on-field performance to elevate the team. For all his faults, McNabb won.He and Andy Reid at coach won, and now it looks like the fans have turned on Reid, too. McNabb said it is “unfortunate” that the focus has been on the Eagles’ struggles of the past few seasons — 12-19  in the last two seasons when so much was expected.“You look at everything (Reid has) been able to accomplish, I think it outweighs what you’ve seen the last two years,” McNabb said.McNabb led the Eagles to four NFC Championship Game appearances and Super Bowl XXXIX, where Philadelphia fell to the New England Patriots. But McNabb was waved goodbye without reservation among fans in 2012, when he was traded to the Washington Redskins.“It wasn’t about how much we were going to win, it was about how much we were going to win by,” McNabb said about his time with Reid. The Eagles are 130-92-1 and 10-9 in the playoffs during Reid’s 14 seasons with the franchise.“People want to make it look like you have nothing to show for it. Well, we have a lot to show for it,” he said. read more

Ohio State won 89-61. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorAfter losing two straight games, including Wednesday’s 64-61 defeat to Rutgers, Ohio State is in danger of its first three-game losing streak in the Chris Holtmann era.But the Ohio State head coach said he wasn’t thinking about any added pressure, and neither was freshman guard Duane Washington.“We’re just treating it like every other game,” Washington said. “We’re gonna take the same approach, and we’re gonna go there and we’re gonna do what we gotta do.”To avoid the record losing streak, the Buckeyes go on the road to face Iowa, a team that has won nine of its first 10 games at home.Projected StartersNo. 16 Ohio State (12-3, 2-2 Big Ten)G — C.J.

The Hawkeyes work more around the perimeter, shooting 23.1 attempts from 3 per night.However, Iowa also finds a way to the charity stripe 22 times per game, compared to its opponents, who average 11.4 free throw attempts a night.The 463 free-throw attempts this season is No. 1 in the NCAA.“In order to get to the line, I think you have to have seekers and not avoiders, and they have big-bodied seekers that are seeking contact, guards that are seeking contact,” Holtmann said. “They’re getting to the line better than anybody in the country.”No. 16 Ohio State takes on Iowa on the road at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. read more

Uh Did Your Refrigerator Just Send Me an Internet Virus

first_img Enroll Now for Free This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. What if, someday, hackers could use devices like your TV or your refrigerator to send malicious emails that infect other internet-connected devices all over the world? Well, buckle up, because that “someday” is today.Sunnyvale, Calif.-based security firm Proofpoint, Inc. uncovered what it calls an “Internet of Things”-based cyber attack involving household devices. The attack was global, Proofpoint says, and targeted 100,000 everyday consumer gadgets, essentially turning them into bots that sent more than 750,000 malicious emails.Instead of hacking into traditional computers, this attack targeted devices such as home-networking routers, connected multi-media centers, televisions and at least one “smart” refrigerator. The attack occurred between December 23, 2013 and January 6, 2014.Related: The Connected Home: A Huge Opportunity But Slow to Catch On”No more than 10 emails were initiated from any single IP address, making the attack difficult to block based on location — and in many cases, the devices had not been subject to a sophisticated compromise,” Proofpoint says. “Instead, misconfiguration and the use of default passwords left the devices completely exposed on public networks, available for takeover and use.”One big problem is that many of the smart home devices come ready-to-use right out of the box. They’re so easy to use, many people don’t think about creating a password or changing the factory-provided password. Failing to set your own password makes internet-connected devices easy prey for hackers.Related: Your Password Is 123456? Wow. Seriously?

Rep Hornberger Plan to improve school safety gains overwhelming support

first_img Categories: Hornberger News,News 20Dec Rep. Hornberger: Plan to improve school safety gains overwhelming support The Michigan Legislature has provided final approval to Rep. Pamela Hornberger’s plan to improve school safety, sending the measure to the governor for consideration.Hornberger is one of the main sponsors in the legislative package establishing a state commission to help review and upgrade building security, creating reporting procedures for incidents in schools, and making the OK2SAY school safety program permanent.“This plan puts aside politics and does the right thing for our kids, teachers and everyone connected with our schools,” said Hornberger, of Macomb County’s Chesterfield Township, after the plan won overwhelming bipartisan support in the Legislature. “Improving security in our schools takes a team approach and continuous work. This plan establishes a framework to make improvements now and in the future.”Hornberger’s measure calls for a liaison within each school district to report to and work with the state – a necessary step to make sure improved safety practices reach every corner of Michigan and ensure local perspectives are included in the process. Emergency operations plans will be adopted for each school building.Other parts of the package include:Requiring schools to consult with local law enforcement officials prior to major renovations or new construction projects, with the goal of including building security improvements.Requiring schools to submit incident reports to Michigan State Police. The reports will provide state school safety officials with examples of how incidents were handled to develop best practices statewide.Removing the expiration date for the OK2SAY program, which allows the confidential reporting of tips on potentially harmful or criminal activity directed at students, school employees or school buildings.The school safety package includes House Bills 5828-29 and 5850-52, along with Senate Bills 882, 982-83 and 990-91.last_img read more
