An impostor posed as Lorrie Cranor at a mobile phone store (in Ohio, nowhere near Cranor’s home) and obtained her number. She is the Federal Trade Commission’s chief technologist. Her impostor’s con netted two new iPhones (the priciest models—and the charges went to Cranor) with her number.
If you've been in business for a while, you've probably purchased some trainings and programs.And if you're anything like me, 55% of them are sitting on your hard drive and collecting dust.You might also have implemented a good portion of the rest, even to a T, yet not getting the results "as advertised."Why?
I feel I need to get in shape before I can go to the gym.I feel I need to pick up some waterproof makeup that will look oh-so-natural to go to Equinox.I feel like everyone who is at Equinox has walked a Victoria’s Secret catwalk before.I feel like wearing “SoulCycle” tights is like carrying a Birkin bag, a badge of superiority, both fiscally and physically, walking around Soho on the way to brunch.These are just some of my thoughts on the “workout scene” in NYC today. And if you don’t think it’s a “scene” you are sadly mistaken. The girls I see in my Nolita coming from their workout are dewy and glow, like as if they’ve had the perfect amount of highlighter placed on their perfect cheekbones. I sweat when I properly workout; I also turn bright red. I used to think that my alma mater ten-year old college t-shirts, with some holes, were appropriate workout gear. Now it seems, unless you are wearing Yeezy trainers, or at the lowest, some Lululemon, you are grossly underdressed for the gym. The yoga scene in Manhattan also gives me acute anxiety. The last time I went to a yoga class was in 2005 at Chelsea Piers. It scarred me so much I’ve never so much as looked through a studio’s doorway since. A room filled with beautiful people, I distinctively remember the instructor coming up to me, telling me my alignment wasn’t right and I needed to move my foot forward. It wouldn’t move. I stood like a statue, unable to even so much as budge from my stance. He gripped my entire calf and tried to physically move it himself, like uprooting a tree trunk. I and it (my leg/foot) would not shift as I felt the side glances coming in from all around me. Much to my chagrin, he walked away. “Well, we’ll just have to leave it there,” he defeatedly said to me as he left. He never came back to my dark corner in the last row, and I never went back to yoga. Giselle does yoga, oh all the limber lithe models do. Their perfectly toned gams bend and stretch as they demonstrate their Namaste at some five star hotel whilst I gaze at their Instagram from my couch. None of this inspires me, it’s more of a voyeuristic stare that ignites in me a deep self-loathing. Yet, yesterday I felt truly inspired by a woman I’d never heard of. Her name is Dana Falsetti. Dana is strong, limber and excellent at yoga. However, she does not fit the “typical yoga mold.” She is of the heavier set, and she doesn’t cover up her body. Rather, she proudly displays her strong muscles which bend and stretch in this yoga stance and that downward dog. I was simply in awe as I scrolled through her photos yesterday. There was something so accessible and motivating about her doing yoga. I loved how unabashed she was about her trials in her practice and readily admitting how long it had taken her to get to where she was. Posting side by side videos of her not being able to do some ridiculous headstand pose ten months ago, to today, intensely moving up her body to a perfectly statue-still headstand. It left me in awe. Much of social media and our pop culture, feels filtered and “not real” to me today. Yet, Dana put her journey and herself out there for all to see. It encouraged and motivated me, and sparked something within. I showed her photos and Instagram to my Mom and sister, and they too were mesmerized by Dana. So much so that last night, all three of us did yoga. We were quite bad to say the least. Had some loud giggles and quivering legs, but we did it. And isn’t that what life’s about? Strengthening yourself from a place of weakness, accompanied by laughter. For this I will forever be grateful to Dana Falsetti, for reminding us of different forms of beauty and power, and of course, for her inspiration.

You all, I have a confession to make. It may not be all that surprising once I give you the scenario. Maybe you've even done something similar at some point.I'd like to think none of you believe yourselves to be perfect or somehow far superior than others when it comes to parenting. Or anything really, for that matter. But if any of you do find yourselves being incredibly judgmental, unforgiving, and lacking grace towards others, maybe this confession will show you something. Or maybe it won't. In that case, I'm sorry you now find me to be an awful and un-perfect parent.
One of the overwhelming goals of my 365 autobiographical-essay-a-day project was "writing as therapy." I theorized that getting “it" all out of my head (while learning what "it" was) would ease my anxiety and panic disorder.
It’s all about code—the building blocks of the Internet. Software code is full of unintentional defects. Governments are paying heavy prices to skilled hackers who can unearth these vulnerabilities, says an article at nytimes.com.In fact, the FBI director, James B. Comey, recommended that the FBI pay hackers a whopping $1.3 million to figure out how to circumvent Apple’s iPhone security.
There are a lot of ways that you can feel invisible. I’ve felt invisible when trying to speak up in a room full of men, who did not seem to notice when I opened my mouth, but easily could hear one another. I’ve felt invisible when my depression reared its ugly head and, even when I tried to express what was happening out loud, no one seemed to acknowledge it; either because they were going through their own things or were too put off by an open declaration of not feeling okay.
Rushing through Times Square a few weeks ago, a promotional van for Zoolander 2 caught my eye. They were taking photos and printing them onto froth foam, creating headshot-worthy lattes and as if free java with your face on it isn't enough, they gave me a bonus selfie stick! I have made fun of the ridiculous looking tool ever since they invaded my Wall Street neighborhood six years ago.
Five years from now, would you still be reading this post or watching it in video format? Well, that’s an interesting idea to ponder, as video making continues to grow leaps and bounds. Studies show that by 2018, 69% of consumer online traffic would come from video watchers online. This is obvious as online videos serve as a quick and easy source of information and entertainment.
The notorious "casting couches" you hear about in stories of old Hollywood are a thing of the past, but there are still those eager to make a buck off performers desperate for a shot at their big break. Just as there are unsavory sites trolling marketers desperate to attract attention online.But don’t be tricked into accepting less than appealing options. There’s really no need to sell your soul to generate awareness.

I manage two Facebook accounts; one is my personal page, the other, my husband’s clown business. On most days, on both accounts, Facebook dutifully greets me with this message: “Galina, we care about you and the memories you share here. We thought you'd like to look back on this post from 1 year ago.” (Or 9 years ago.)”
The problem that many of us bloggers have is that of getting a decent amount of traffic to the blog on a daily basis. There could be a problem with a lack of exposure or it is possible that the content strategy of the blog could be lacking.Even large corporations pay close attention to the traffic that their blog gets, as this converts into leads as well as sales. Blogs that have thousands of visitors per day can turn into a quite lucrative venture. Advertising on the site could sell at a great price and becomes the definition of passive income.
