That The FBI Can Reconstruct Shredded Documents is Bad News For Those That Rely On Shredders.

Yes, there is SOFTWARE that help you piece it together once you scan all the shreds! Click image to access this company’s Website.


This morning on the news I heard that the FBI was reconstructing shredded documents in the Michael Cohen case. I thought I had misheard that. I rewound it and watched it again.

They were RECONSTRUCTING shredded documents.

Ahh?

What is the point of shredding documents if they can be put back together?

I will ask you that again. Why shred if all it does is slow down somebody from being able to access the document.

Wow.

I Googled it. I was gobsmacked. They have been able to do this for years — with or without software help.

Made me laugh.

I have never owned a shredder or felt the need to shred a document. I kid you not. I must lead a sheltered life. So, I have never really worried about the ‘security’ of my old documents. Much of the time I throw my old documents away with the rest of the garbage. IF anybody wants to rummage through them … have fun. My credit card statements? So, what. People know what I buy. I do not consider it a secret. My medical records. Have fun. I don’t care.

So, this cracked me up.

Ahhhh! What a GREAT world we live in.


You need this type of, AT LEAST ‘P-5’ Security,
Micro-Cut Shredder IF you want added protection.

If This Claim Is True, Then A Lot Of Us Must Have 146+ IQs.

I saw this and couldn’t resist — though I knew that my IQ was NOWHERE close to 146. I am more in the double-digit range. I just wanted to see how difficult it was.

It is a SCAM.

It is trivial.

If you need an IQ of 146 to get 100% on this, then there must be a ton of folks who have 146+ IQs.

OK, I HAD to look it up. 146+ IQ is said to be restricted to LESS than the TOP 1% in the world. In that case this test and article is a FAKE.

I think this is way to premature and speculative — and by that I mean the ‘link to (true) intelligence‘ part. I am sure that these 150 genes are related to thinking skills, BUT I am personally not convinced that enough research has been done to establish how they relate to intelligence.

But, I wanted to make sure that you did not miss this news. Hence, this post.

‘Prepdog.org’ Is Great For Homeschooling — Just Make Sure You Are Using ‘Chrome’.

Though we are now homeschooling Teischan, I like her to take the same NWEA Testing, at year end, as she would have taken at school. That way there is never any misunderstandings, with anyone, as to whether she completed the year or did the appropriate testing.

One challenge of homeschooling is finding test preparation material — especially online and with automated, self-assessment.

I stumbled upon ‘prepdog.org’ this weekend and was delighted. It has a fair amount of tests and automated scoring — PROVIDED that you use Chrome. We found that out to our costs this morning. Teischan, on a Windows 10 PC uses Internet Explorer. She was NOT getting the scores. I tried it on an Android Tablet and on one of my PCs and I would get the results, each time, with no problem. Then it dawned on me. Chrome. Downloaded and installed it, BINGO. Everything works.

So a heads up.
