used with permission from Norton by Symantec
 
It can seem inevitable: Whenever a catastrophe happens — whether a natural disaster or a financial one like a major data breach — scammers jump at the opportunity to take advantage of people's fears and emotions to commit fraud and identity theft. On September 14, 2017, the Federal Trade Commission published a blog warning that scammers posing as Equifax employees are calling people asking them to verify account information.1

Heaven or Hell
You are standing before two doors. One of the path leads to heaven and the other one leads to hell. There are two guardians, one by each door. You know one of them always tells the truth and the other always lies, but you don't know who is the honest one and who is the liar.
You can only ask one question to one of them in order to find the way to heaven. What is the question?
This is one of the classic puzzles asked in Infosys interview.

Aligning Objects in PowerPoint
A key to achieving a professional, clean, and crisp looking presentation is aligning objects on your slides. Make sure they are well-placed and lined up! Rather than eyeballing the placement of your pictures and textboxes, you can make precise, subtle adjustments with PowerPoint's alignment options. These tools can transform a higgledy-piggledy collection of objects into a neat arrangement in a flash!

Did You Know? 

The Modern Hawaiian alphabet only has 13 letters

five vowels (A a, E e, I i, O o, U u) and eight consonants (H h, K k, L l, M m, N n, P p, W w, ʻokina).  You sometimes hear that the Hawaiian alphabet has only 12 letters -- 7 consonants and 5 vowels -- which represent all the basic sounds, or phonemes, in the language. However, these letters (A, E, H, I, K, L, M, N, O, P, U, W) only represent the sounds that were easily recognized by the English-speaking missionaries who first implemented the written alphabet. The Hawaiian language contains another phoneme which is treated as a consonant: the glottal stop, or ‘okina. English speakers often don't notice this sound although it is one that we make in the middle of the word "uh-oh" and at the beginning of many words which begin with vowels. Additionally, Hawaiian speakers distinguish between short vowels, which are briefly pronounced, and long vowels, which have a greater duration.

Modern Hawaiian orthography marks these significant sounds by using a "left single quotation mark" (‘) to mark the ‘okina, and a macron, or kahakō, to mark long vowels.
