    VOCÊ SOFRE BULLYING?- EP. 1428 (CAMPANHA UNICEF)

    Guys, this is going to be a special video. It’s an invitation UNICEF made to us to address cyberbullying. Cyberbullying happens when someone is a victim of psychological harassment through digital means usually on the Internet. This can involve: lies, harassment people trying to impersonate you… all this in an attempt to publicly embarrass you to upset you to negatively affect you in some way. This harassment can happen in person but online it is a little more severe because it’s facilitated by anonymity. With the possibility of hiding their own identity people who cyberbully do not measure the consequences of what they do. And, not seeing the victim face…

    How a reverse proxy server could benefit your international website

    If you have an international website, you might have heard about reverse proxy hosting. But what exactly is it, and how can it benefit your website? In simple terms, a reverse proxy server is a server that sits between a computer accessing the internet and the destination website providing the website content. The reverse proxy server is controlled by the website owner. It behaves like a web server, but instead of storing the website content, it forwards the request to a “parent server” where the content is stored. Typically, your reverse proxy server will be located in your target country, which will reduce page loading times in that country. This,…

    Why you need to regularly maintain your WordPress website

    So, you’ve created your company’s website using WordPress and uploaded all your content. Great! So, that’s the end of it, right? Well, not quite. It’s important to regularly maintain your WordPress website, otherwise you could be vulnerable to security breaches and other problems. The WordPress platform updates regularly, so it’s important to always update your website to the latest version. The same goes for WordPress plugins, as out-of-date plugins can sometimes be abused by hackers to attack a website. Website maintenance also goes beyond security. By regularly optimising your website, you can improve your page loading speeds, user experience and SEO, as well as ensure that all the content on…

    Why your website’s outbound links are important

    Outbound links are those which point from your website to other websites. Whilst they’re not a direct ranking factor, they’re still important for user experience and could impact your SEO indirectly. Links are how both search engines and users discover content, so by linking to relevant and high-quality websites you’ll be building trust and also helping them to find the information they’re looking for. Outbound links also strengthen the topic signal to search engines, which can help them to understand what your webpages are about, which in turn could help them rank better for relevant search terms. It’s important to keep track of your outbound links and to delete them…

    Steven Johnson: The Web and the city

    I want to take you back basically to my hometown, and to a picture of my hometown of the week that “Emergence” came out. And it’s a picture we’ve seen several times. Basically, “Emergence” was published on 9/11. I live right there in the West Village, so the plume was luckily blowing west, away from us. We had a two-and-a-half-day-old baby in the house that was ours — we hadn’t taken it from somebody else. (Laughter) And one of the thoughts that I had dealing with these two separate emergences of a book and a baby, and having this event happen so close — that my first thought, when I…

    Wade Davis: The worldwide web of belief and ritual

    You know, culture was born of the imagination, and the imagination — the imagination as we know it — came into being when our species descended from our progenitor, Homo erectus, and, infused with consciousness, began a journey that would carry it to every corner of the habitable world. For a time, we shared the stage with our distant cousins, Neanderthal, who clearly had some spark of awareness, but — whether it was the increase in the size of the brain, or the development of language, or some other evolutionary catalyst — we quickly left Neanderthal gasping for survival. By the time the last Neanderthal disappeared in Europe, 27,000 years…

    Gordon Brown: Wiring a web for global good

    Can I say how delighted I am to be away from the calm of Westminster and Whitehall? (Laughter) This is Kim, a nine-year-old Vietnam girl, her back ruined by napalm, and she awakened the conscience of the nation of America to begin to end the Vietnam War. This is Birhan, who was the Ethiopian girl who launched Live Aid in the 1980s, 15 minutes away from death when she was rescued, and that picture of her being rescued is one that went round the world. This is Tiananmen Square. A man before a tank became a picture that became a symbol for the whole world of resistance. This next is…

    Kevin Kelly: The next 5,000 days of the web

    The Internet, the Web as we know it, the kind of Web — the things we’re all talking about — is already less than 5,000 days old. So all of the things that we’ve seen come about, starting, say, with satellite images of the whole Earth, which we couldn’t even imagine happening before, all these things rolling into our lives, just this abundance of things that are right before us, sitting in front of our laptop, or our desktop. This kind of cornucopia of stuff just coming and never ending is amazing, and we’re not amazed. It’s really amazing that all this stuff is here. (Laughter) It’s in 5,000 days,…
