If you're in the prime of life, say between 30 and 55, you probably remember 1985, more or less. And you've got a pretty reasonable chance of seeing 2045.

So what do you think the world will be like in 30 years time? And how different will it be from 30 years ago?

If business as usual continues, it's quite likely that the global population will be 4 times what it was in 1985. Same goes for GDP. And total energy consumption. And total food production. But also other limited resource consumption and total pollution production.

Now bear in mind that first statement. This is a future you will probably see and experience. It isn't some far distant time that you don't need to worry about because you won't see it. Or problems that you can just leave to your children and descendants to sort out. 30 years is time enough to raise children and get them to child bearing age, but it's not that long. Because think back and you can remember 30 years ago. Remember 2000 and the Millenium and how 2030 felt like the far distant future? Well we're half way there.

So is "Business As Usual" sufficiently sustainable that it will keep going for another 30 years? Will 2045 be pretty much like 2015, just more so?

As one Western commentator had it: If China destroys itself faster than we destroy ourselves then we win, right?

China appears to be running out of effluent sinks before it runs out of resources. Or maybe it's just the Limits to Growth prediction playing out that if the resource limits don't get you, the pollution will.

Courion: How to Protect Your Healthcare Data from Cyber Attacks

Access Risk Management Blog | Courion

"I've said it before and I'll say it again. It's not if your data is hacked, but when." - Dr. Seuss (probably)

Ok, so maybe Dr. Seuss isn't the person who spoke those words, but the sentiment behind it is true. There is no more hoping that your information is safe. It's time to plan for an attack.

In case you haven't heard, online medical records are big ticket items for cyber criminals. Don't believe me? Just ask Anthem or the UCLA Health System. Or you can read the recent report in Modern Healthcare stating that the average cost of healthcare breach worldwide is $363 per exposed PHI record. In the US the average cost was even higher at $398! How many records do you have in your system? Hundreds? Thousands? Do you want to take a second and do the math or would you rather hear what you can do to mitigate this risk?

That's what I thought. It's time to get serious about your healthcare data. Keep reading for 7 ways you can keep your healthcare data safe from cyber attacks.

If you are thinking of migrating to a nation in Europe, it is important to learn about the countries considered most welcoming for the expatriate life. Fortunately for you, there are numerous European countries that make great places to settle permanently.

Switzerland. Switzerland is a wonderful European nation for people who want to…

Julian Bond: UK Politics, Business as Usual and the threat to that from the SNP and Jeremy Corbyn.

UK Politics, Business as Usual and the threat to that from the SNP and Jeremy Corbyn.

While Osbourne is promoting Trident and portraying the SNP and Corbyn as a threat to national security, consider these quotes from the article linked below.

- Despite near universal recognition now that the war in Iraq was a disaster, no major British social institution is headed by a single one of the majority of the population who were opposed to the war.

- Every Cabinet Minister actively supported the war.

- Of the fifteen Tory MPs who rebelled and voted against the war, not one is a minister.

- There is not one single Permanent Under Secretary of a UK government department who was known to be against the war and most were enthusiasts.

- Of the 107 bureaucrats in the BBC who earn over 100,000 pounds pa, insiders estimate that only five were opponents of the war.

- There is no head of a major TV channel in the UK who was against the war in Iraq.

- Every current editor of a UK national newspaper supported the Iraq war.

- The Iraq test even extends into the heads of institutions apparently quite unrelated, such as City of London banks and insurance companies. There are a tiny number of heads of FTSE 100 companies who were against the war.

- There is also a strong correlation between support for the Iraq War and support for austerity economics.

There is a near-universal recognition in wider society that the Iraq War was both completely unjustified and a dreadful strategic blunder. Yet its support is a major pre-condition for membership of the governing elite. This is just one of several areas where the population is at serious odds with the establishment.

It is not that there is an Iraq test. It is that Iraq is the touchstone for adherence to the neo-liberal consensus.

So expect more media attacks on, and demonisation of, anyone who threatens to represent that population and disagrees with the establishment.

It is an astonishing fact that, despite near universal recognition now that the war in Iraq was a disaster, no major British social institution is headed by a single one of the majority of the population wo were opposed to the war. Every Cabinet Minister actively supported the war.
