The New 'Google Search' Scam
Lee Gomes, 02.24.10, 6:00 AM ET
BURLINGAME, CALIF. -
Small and medium-sized businesses depend on the Web perhaps as much as anyone. They thus need to be mindful of the ever-evolving roster of Web scams--like a new one involving news.
Most people know that search engines like Google are useful for quick research on topics in the news. Unfortunately, the bad guys aren't far behind.
A search for "Bill Clinton heart attack" performed last Sunday produced the expected Google links about the former president's recent heart stent procedure. There were stories from the Los Angeles Times and ABC News, along with links to sites devoted to fighting heart disease.
However, it wasn't all what it seemed. If you clicked on the 10th item on the Google page, headlined "Bill Clinton heart attack," you were directed to another page of what appeared to be even more helpful Google results. Everything about the page--the typeface, the design--was authentic. If you looked quickly in the URL bar at the top of the page, you'd find what you might think was conclusive evidence of it being a legitimate Google page, since the URL seemed to be "googlesearches.com."
But in fact the URL had a "q," not a "g," as its first letter. The two letters look enough alike that only the most eagle-eyed would have ever noticed.
And what was this imposter Google page up to? The usual Web scams, notably, trying to get users to download bogus "security" software that in fact infects your computer with sundry malware that can be difficult and expensive to get rid of.
Creating a Web site called "qooglesearches.com"--another of this ilk is "qoogle.com"--is a variation of a practice known as "typo-squatting." In its classic form, someone registers a domain that is close in spelling to a real one. When Web users inadvertently typed the wrong URL, they're directed to the typo-squatter's site, where they'd realize their mistake on account of all the ads and other attempts at easy monetization.
But typo-squatters appear to be doing two things new. First, they are trying to fool you into thinking you've landed on the Web page you wanted to go to in the first place. Second, they are using tricks of "black hat" search engine optimization to get the links to their scam sites included in genuine Google search results.
You are not entirely defenseless against this type of Web con, though you need to be on your toes. In the original list of Google "Bill Clinton heart attack" search results, the listing that sent users to the fake Google page had spam-style nonsense words instead of the usual Web page summary. (The actual text was "If you glistening a conch footlights with unidentified tapiridae yellowtail, verner are that you bill clinton heart attack hereditary to get assault for use ..." And the green URL link under that text was for something called NewLifeClothing, which is apparently a legitimate maternity clothing operation whose computers had been compromised to run the scam. But if you weren't paying attention, and instead were just clicking on the Google links as they tumbled down the page, you could very easily have missed both clues.
Google has a small army fighting these sorts of Web scams, but the scams change almost on an hour-by-hour basis. Indeed, throughout last Sunday afternoon, the bogus link sent users to different places as the day wore on.
There are any number of typo-squatter names associated with Google; most of them are owned by MarkMonitor, a company that patrols URLs on behalf of clients to prevent these scams from happening.
MarkMonitor, for example, owns "googlesearches.com," and when that URL is typed into a browser, the result is an empty page. But the company hadn't until Monday heard of the Google-themed URLs beginning with a "q."
Te Smith, spokesperson for MarkMonitor, says the scam was particularly insidious because "unless you have very sharp eyes, you will just continue blithely on."
What's the moral? Web users need to surf defensively in the same way they drive defensively on the freeway. As Smith put it, "Think before you click, and keep your eyes open."

A newly joined trainee engineer asks his boss "what is the meaning of appraisal?"
Boss: "Do you know the meaning of resignation? "
Trainee: "Yes I do"
Boss: "So let me make you understand what a appraisal is by comparing it with resignation"
Comparison study : Appraisal and Resignation
In appraisal meeting they will speak only about your weakness, errors and failures.
In resignation meeting they will speak only about your strengths, past achievements and success.
In appraisal you may need to cry and beg for even 10% hike.
In resignation you can easily demand (or get even without asking) more than 50-60% hike.
During appraisal, they will deny promotion saying you didn't meet the expectation, you don't have leadership qualities, and you had several drawbacks in our objective/goal.
During resignation, they will say you are the core member of team; you are the vision of the company how can you go, you have to take the project in shoulder and lead your juniors to success.
There is 90% chance for not getting any significant incentives after appraisal.
There is 90% chance of getting immediate hike after you put the resignation.
Trainee: "Yes boss enough, now I understood my future. For an appraisal I will have to resign ... !!!"

Ranjan Das, CEO and MD of SAP Indian subcontinent
died after a massive cardiac arrest in Mumbai on Wednesday.
One of the youngest CEOs, he was 42
Died at 21st October 2009
What killed Ranjan Das and Lessons for Corporate India
A month ago, many of us heard about the sad demise of Ranjan Das from Bandra, Mumbai. Ranjan, just 42 years of age, was the CEO of SAP-Indian Subcontinent, the youngest CEO of an MNC in
It was certainly a wake-up call for corporate
Was it the stress?
A couple of you called me asking about the reasons. While Ranjan had mentioned that he faced a lot of stress, that is a common element in most of our lives. We used to think that by being fit, one can conquer the bad effects of stress. So I doubted if the cause was stress.
The Real Reason
However, everyone missed out a small line in the reports that Ranjan used to make do with 4-5 hours of sleep. This is an earlier interview of Ranjan on NDTV in the program 'Boss' Day Out': Boss' Day Out: Ranjan Das of SAP India.
Here he himself admits that he would love to get more sleep ( and that he was not proud of his ability to manage without sleep, contrary to what others extolled ).
Last week, I was working with a well-known cardiologist on the subject of Heart Disease caused by Lack of Sleep. While I cannot share the video nor the slides because of confidentiality reasons, I have distilled the key points below in the hope it will save some of our lives.
Short sleep duration ( <5 or 5-6 hours ) increased risk for high BP by 350% to 500% compared to those who slept longer than 6 hours per night. Paper published in 2009. As you know, high BP kills.
Young people ( 25-49 years of age ) are twice as likely to get high BP if they sleep less. Paper published in 2006.
Individuals who slept less than 5 hours a night had a 3-fold increased risk of heart attacks. Paper published in 1999.
Complete and partial lack of sleep increased the blood concentrations of High sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-cRP), the strongest predictor of heart attacks. Even after getting adequate sleep later, the levels stayed high!!
Just one night of sleep loss increases very toxic substances in body such as Interleukin-6 (IL-6), Tumour Necrosis Factor-Alpha (TNF-alpha) and C-reactive protein (cRP). They increase risks of many medical conditions, including cancer, arthritis and heart disease. Paper published in 2004.
Sleeping for <=5 hours per night leads to 39% increase in heart disease. Sleeping for <=6 hours per night leads to 18% increase in heart disease. Paper published in 2006.
For lack of space, I cannot explain here the ideal sleep architecture. But in brief, sleep is composed of two stages: REM ( Rapid Eye Movement ) and non-REM. The former helps in mental consolidation while the latter helps in physical repair and rebuilding. During the night, you alternate between REM and non-REM stages 4-5 times.
The earlier part of sleep is mostly non-REM. During that period, your pituitary gland releases growth hormones that repair your body. The latter part of sleep is more and more REM type.
For you to be mentally alert during the day, the latter part of sleep is more important. No wonder when you wake up with an alarm clock after 5-6 hours of sleep, you are mentally irritable throughout the day (lack of REM sleep). And if you have slept for less than 5 hours, your body is in a complete physical mess ( lack of non-REM sleep ), you are tired throughout the day, moving like a zombie and your immunity is way down ( Ive been there, done that ).
Finally, as long-distance runners, you need an hour of extra sleep to repair the running related damage.
Barring stress control, Ranjan Das did everything right: eating proper food, exercising ( marathoning! ), maintaining proper weight. But he missed getting proper and adequate sleep, minimum 7 hours. In my opinion, that killed him.
If you are not getting enough sleep ( 7 hours ), you are playing with fire, even if you have low stress.
I always took pride in my ability to work 50 hours at a stretch whenever the situation warranted. But I was so spooked after seeing the scientific evidence last week that since Saturday night, I ensure I do not even set the alarm clock under 7 hours. Now, that is a nice excuse to get some more sleep.
Unfortunately, Ranjan Das is not alone when it comes to missing sleep. Many of us are doing exactly the same, perhaps out of ignorance. Please forward this mail/article to as many of your colleagues/friends as possible, especially those who might be short-changing their sleep. we can save even one young life because of this email.

Recently a lipstick brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90.
It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.
The lipstick brands that contain lead are:
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.
The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer. After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick contained the most amount of lead.
Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead.
Here is the test you can do yourself:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick colour changes to black,
then you know the lipstick contains lead.
Please send this information to all your friends, wives and female family members.

ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) lets you keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed. Yes, the standard registry backup options that come along with Windows does back up most of the registry, but not all of it. ERUNT can create a complete backup set, including the security hive and user related sections. It's easy to use, and there are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore, if needed. As this program creates a backup folder every time the PC is started, typically 30 MB+, it ends up taking up quite a bit of hard drive space. So, it would be prudent to keep an eye on the folder C:WINDOWSERUNT.

Smereka is a personal freeform database and a Personal information manager. It can help organize data in an hierarchical and searchable database. Yes, we could use "Word" to store data, but, we all know how cumbersome it can be to launch the massive "Office" software to view just a paragraph or two of the text. Smereka stores files and notes in a single file - Smereka database. The details get indexed on the fly, yes, you can search for them immediately after adding them to the database. The hierarchical system of item storage of "Smereka" facilitates sorting out the items in a tree-like structure. The items can be moved, copied from branch to branch, or icons assigned. As soon as a tree item is clicked the stored info is displayed on the screen, and in most of the cases you would not need an external program. And, more importantly, you can share the Smereka database too - your peers can receive it a single file and instantly browse all the content, search or export the information to disk.
If you have admin rights on your PC you can download the 2.9 MB Smereka v1.1.1 (10 January 2010 at http://yp.lviv.ua/smereka/download/smereka_setup.exe
