Generate Secure Passwords with Random.org

USE THIS

Cyber-security is all the rage these days, and for good reason. As technology evolves and becomes more ubiquitous and integrated into our daily lives, security becomes increasingly paramount. One of the most easily overlooked ways to up your security online is to have a complex, novel password for each site you use. That’s where Random.org comes in – it will generate truly random strings for you to use that are extremely difficult for a hacker to crack. But how will I remember all these complicated passwords, you ask? Stay tuned for next week’s Tech Corner for a simple solution!

CURIOUS FACT

Just how many of us are there?

ABSORB THIS

Getting an exact statistic on global numbers of vegans is hard. We see the change daily with more and more people exploring the lifestyle or committing fully to becoming vegan. It is thought that now 6% of the US population considers themselves plant based and we are starting to see a snowball effect with the numbers increasing more and more each year. Some see veganism as a trend but we’re proving time and time again that vegan is a lifestyle, not a fashion. Check out some of the global statistics published recently by Plant Proteins.

Going Vegan: The Role(s) of ICT in Vegan Practice Transformation 

KNOW THIS
Lawo, D., Esau, M., Engelbutzeder, P., & Stevens, G. (2020). Going vegan: The role (s) of ICT in vegan practice transformation. Sustainability12(12), 5184.
ICT (information and communications technology)
Though consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious, and access to information is growing, there is surprisingly little research on effective ways to catalyze behavior change towards veganism in the long-term. The researchers conducted semi-structured interviews with vegans to more deeply understand how various practices become embedded in daily life when one makes the switch and has to deal with societal pressures against breaking norms.
