What is a Personal Friend?

From early childhood it is ingrained into our psyche to remember the important contrast of friend versus stranger.  The former our ally, protector and familiar person whom we instinctively recognise and feel safe towards, whereas the latter a sign of danger; a person to fear and steer clear from.  In bygone years everything was pretty… Read More ›

Protect Your Password

Capitalism spawns entrepreneurs at a rapid rate. Ever eager to generate money under the inviting economic system such a political persuasion offers they appear from every orifice. Information Technology remains an infant industry that provides opportunities at a seemingly unsustainable rate for those who seek wealth. Some good, and some not so good.
