Scandals In The Digital World That Affect The Privacy Of People’s Information

It is given that Google is one of the most popular tech companies in the digital world. People who are looking for products like map illustrations go to Google to search for the item. However, in spite of its popularity, Google like other businesses also face challenges. Last Monday, the shares of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, dropped after a Wall Street Journal report regarding data privacy glitch.

According to the Wall Street Journal report, there is way for outside companies to be able to tap into the digital information of Google users but have not decided to share the information with the public. The Google discovery concerns Google+ service which was an unfortunate attempt to create a social media platform like Facebook.

Google discovered that in the last 2 or 3 years, outside companies can hook their apps to Google+ to access information of Google +users that were supposed to be private because it includes profile photos and birth dates. Yes, indeed, there is a similarity to the Facebook problem with Cambridge Analytica that took advantage of the loose rules of Facebook. Information was gathered from Facebook friends without their approval.

Even if Google+ is not Facebook, it was found out that a software glitch could potentially affect 500,000 of Google+ accounts. Meanwhile, it has not been determined whether Google+ information has been accessed with the software bug. If you will compare the potentially affected users of Google+ to Cambridge Analytica, it can be consideredas significantly small. Nevertheless, this is not an excuse to Google actions.

Even with the growing scandals about digital information, people have not learned the proper ways to make informed choices on how to ensure safety when using their internet-connected devices. People still choose to use social media platforms and other technology products and services. However, they do not agree to companies sharing their personal information.

Bird’s eye view maps or map illustrations are being used as marketing and promotional tools by cities and towns because of their effectiveness in eliciting the attention of people. Illustrated maps of a city or a landscape can be created as if the artist is looking at the city from the windows of an airplane.

Temple Bell In Bangkok Lowering Volume After Complaints About Noise

Temples are everywhere in Bangkok. Aside from the many accommodations in the city including Novotel in Bangkok, there are also temples located in various parts of the capital. Some of these temples have bells that are tolled at certain times of the day. One of the Bangkok temples that have been in the city for three centuries recently decided to lowers its toll volume after the residents of the nearby luxury condominium complained about the noise level every time the bell tolls at dawn.

The ordered came from the monks of the Wat Sai temple. They have agreed to lower the bell volume when it tolls every 4 in the morning as well as in the evening. The decision came after a complaint was filed by the district office of Bang Kho Laem. The residents of the Star View condominium, an upscale project, are not happy about the noise therefore they decided to file a complaint.

The temple is located in Rama III Road and it has a height of 1.2 meters. It is situated at the top of tower with three stories. Every day, at 4 am, the bell rings out a rhythmic tool that lasts for 20 minutes. According to one of the monks assigned at the Wat Sai temple, Phra Suthicharn Supatto, during the Buddhist Lent which last for three months, the bell is set to ring twice every day. The evening ring lasts for 10 minutes once the clock strikes 6 in the evening. For many years, the bell tolls that way every year and no residents have ever complained, according to Phra Suthicharn.

Abbot Preecha Poonnalo already said that they are not going to stop the bell’s tradition of ringing but rather he has ordered the monks to minimize the noise as much as possible. He added that residents of the complaining high-rise condominium have invited the monks before in their location in order to conduct a religious ritual. To lower the noise, the log the monks are using is exchanged to a smaller one. Guests and staff of other accommodations and hotels like Novotel in Bangkok do not mind such noise as these are a part of the culture and religion of Thailand.

It Is Inevitable For The Internet To Split In The Future

The hospitality industry certainly needs the internet because it allows travellers to book for accommodations no matter what part of the world they are in. For example, travellers who want to book a room at the hotel in Ploenchit, only need to access the website to make a reservation. Yes, indeed, the internet has become a standard part of life and as ubiquitous as the air we breathe.

However, in the near future, internet users may be forced to deal with the effects of an internet “split” or the possibility of a fractured internet. The most likely scenario will be a bifurcation into a Chinese-led internet and a non-Chinese internet that will be led by the United States. It is very likely that China will lead the split.

According to Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google and executive chairman of Alphabet, China has an ideal environment for internet-based economic activities. There are enormous numbers of impressive companies offering dynamic new services that are intended for the Chinese population. However, the dominance of China particularly their leadership in products and services has its share of downsides.

Up until now, the internet has been largely independent and self-sustaining even with its global reach. Protocols are heavily standardized with an open-source base that can be copied and followed indefinitely. Different processes like the creation and transfer of domain names are universally accepted. The internet has been resistant to any attempts that will change its core standards even if it is new rules and regulations issued by the government.

However, the basic protocols and standards where the internet was based have been developed years ago. These protocols must be refreshed. It makes sense for a country or region in the world to have some form of control on how protocols are implemented. Certain freedoms can be sacrificed particularly in countries that require censorship.

If a split happens, it will be slow and gradual with plenty of time to prepare. Meanwhile, enjoy yourself at hotel in Ploenchit and the multitude of attractions that Bangkok offers. The hotel is just a short walk away from the BTS Sky Train Ploenchit Station making it convenient to travel to other tourist destinations.
