Tiantian Kullander, the influential young founder of cryptocurrency company Amber Group, died suddenly in his sleep on Nov. 23, the company confirmed.

The group had just received a $3 billion valuation earlier this year, and was in the process of raising another $100 million—a meteoric success in which he played an integral role after launching Amber in 2017 with a group of finance insiders, including former Goldman Sachs Group Inc and Morgan Stanley workers.

HUMAN FRAGILITY: Standardized for Financial Advisors and Medical Professionals

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA

***

***

DEFINITION: A general review of research on frailty defined it more specifically as “a state characterized by reduced physiological reserve and loss of resistance to stressors caused by accumulated age-related deficits.”

CITE: https://www.r2library.com/Resource/Title/082610254

Between 10 and 15% of older adults are considered frail. But how do doctors measure frailty? One tool is called the Frailty Index for Elders (FIFE) and consists of 10 items that are scored zero to 10, with zero indicating no frailty, one to three indicating that there is a risk of frailty, and four or above indicating that the individual is considered frail in that item.

Another frailty index, used by Dalhousie University in Canada, requires 30 variables to be measured and is regarded more as a comprehensive measure of one’s overall health.

It’s important to understand that maintaining good health and fitness is not just about avoiding illness and injury, reaching overhead for that jar of peanut butter on the top shelf, and walking the dog farther than just around the block. It’s also about recovering more quickly when you get sick or injured, which everyone does eventually.

What is Cyber-Security SPOOFING and PHISHING?

By Staff Reporters

***

Spoofing 

Spoofing is when someone disguises an email address, sender name, phone number, or website URL—often just by changing one letter, symbol, or number—to convince you that you are interacting with a trusted source.

For example, you might receive an email that looks like it’s from your boss, a company you’ve done business with, or even from someone in your family—but it actually isn’t.

Criminals count on being able to manipulate you into believing that these spoofed communications are real, which can lead you to download malicious software, send money, or disclose personal, financial, or other sensitive information.

Phishing 

Phishing schemes often use spoofing techniques to lure you in and get you to take the bait. These scams are designed to trick you into giving information to criminals that they shouldn’t have access to.

In a phishing scam, you might receive an email that appears to be from a legitimate business and is asking you to update or verify your personal information by replying to the email or visiting a website. The web address might look similar to one you’ve used before. The email may be convincing enough to get you to take the action requested.

But once you click on that link, you’re sent to a spoofed website that might look nearly identical to the real thing—like your bank or credit card site—and asked to enter sensitive information like passwords, credit card numbers, banking PINs, etc. These fake websites are used solely to steal your information.

Phishing has evolved and now has several variations that use similar techniques:

  • Vishing scams happen over the phone, voice email, or VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) calls.
  • Smishing scams happen through SMS (text) messages.
  • Pharming scams happen when malicious code is installed on your computer to redirect you to fake websites.

Spoofing and phishing are key parts of business email compromise scams.
