http VS https

 

Difference between

http:// and https://

Very important ……. must know …….

Dear Friends,


The main difference between http:// and https:// is –

It’s all about keeping you secure, HTTP stands for HyperText Transport Protocol, which is just a fancy way of saying it’s a protocol (a language, in a manner of speaking) for information to be passed back and forth between web servers and clients.

The important thing is the letter S which makes the difference between HTTP and HTTPS. The S (big surprise) stands for ‘Secure’.

If you visit a website or webpage, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following:

http://
. This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular ‘unsecure’ language..

In other words, it is possible for someone to ‘eavesdrop’ on your computer’s conversation with the website. If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.


This is why you never ever ever enter your credit card number in an http website!


But if the web address beg ins with
https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.

You understand why this is so important, right?


If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with
https://. If it doesn’t, there’s no way you’re going to enter sensitive information like a credit card number!

http VS https

Facts about your mobile phone

FOUR THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO 


there are quite a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.

Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.

Check out what you can do with it: 

 

FIRST  

 
Emergency 

The Emergency Number worldwide for   Mobile is 112.


If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency,
dial
 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you,
This number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out. 


SECOND

 

Have you locked your keys in the car? 
Does your car have remote keyless entry?   This information may come in handy someday. 
 If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, just call someone at home and ask them to 
get your spare key and their mobile phone.  Then hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at home press the unlock button on the spare key, holding it near their mobile phone.
Your car will unlock and saves someone from having to drive your keys to you.

Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away but if you can reach someone who has 
the other ‘remote’ fey or your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk). 


Editor’s Note: It works well! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a mobile phone!’
 

THIRD 
 

  


Hidden   Battery  Power 

Imagine your mobile battery is very low.  To reactivate, press the keys *3370#   and your mobile will restart with this reserve and will show a 50% increase in battery. 


This reserve will get charged when you next recharge your mobile. 


FOURTH 

 

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone? 
To check your mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 # 


A 15 digit code will appear on the screen.  This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep

it somewhere safe.  If your phone gets stolen you can phone your service provider and give them this code.

They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card your phone will
be totally useless.

You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it
can’t use it or sell it either. 


If everybody did this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones. 


 

ATM – PIN Number Reversal – Good to Know 
If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can
notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse.

For example, if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 4321. 

The ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine.

The machine will still give you the money you requested but, unknown to the robber, the police will be
immediately dispatched to the location. 


This information was recently broadcast on CTV by Crime Stoppers however it is seldom used because

people just don’t know about it.   Please pass this along to everyone.

This is the kind of information people don’t mind receiving,

KILLER HOUSE PLANT!

KILLER HOUSE PLANT!

This plant that we have in our homes and offices is extremely dangerous! 

The message is true.

I almost lost my daughter who put a piece of the leaf of this plant in her mouth and her tongue swelled to the point of suffocation. This is one plant but there are others with the same characteristics of coloring. Those are also poisonous and we should get rid of them. Please watch out for our children. As we all leave our children home in the hands of the helpers, we should give them a safe environment where they can play.

This plant is common in Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda in plant nurseries, many offices and homes. It is a deadly poison, mainly for the children. It can kill a kid in less than a minute and an adult in 15 minutes. It should be uprooted from gardens and taken out of offices. If touched, one should never touch ones eyes; it can cause partial or permanent blindness.

Please alert your buddies.

An ant and a grasshopper

An ant worked hard in the sweltering heat all summer,

 building its nest and laying up supplies for the winter.A grasshopper thought the ant was stupid

not knowing how to enjoy life. It spent its days laughing,

singing & dancing thoroughly enjoying the summer.

 

 

  

Came winter, the ant was warm, comfortable

and had no shortage of food.

 

 

  

The grasshopper had no proper shelter,

no stored food, and couldn’t find anything

to eat from the snow-covered ground.

So it died and the story ended.  

MORAL OF THE STORY:

Be responsible for yourself!
