The Deep, Dark Web: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly “The Hidden Web”, or more commonly known as “The Deep Web”, is a fraction of the Internet that is not indexed by standard search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etcetera. The reason for this is due to the fact that standard search engines cannot directly access data that is held in databases, which makes it extremely difficult for search engines to index. So, if standard search engines cannot access the Deep web, what can? And what is the primary purposes and intentions of people who use it? Even though the average, ordinary person like you and I have no business to conduct there, there are others who are not so ‘ordinary’, those who may use the Deep Web for either mere casual leisure, or downright nefarious purposes.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”- Benjamin Franklin. Technically speaking, internet censorship is difficult to achieve. Proponents of this measure seem to have neglected the fact that putting in place a system of surveillance requires the establishment of clear, unalterable rules. But often, such a task can be almost unfeasible since it is quite problematical to define precisely the information that is supposed to be blocked. In the context of hate speech for example, it is important to acknowledge the existence of a line between criticism, whether it is constructive or not, and pure animosity.
The main issue in the case study is the issue of privacy, which is the amount of personal information that is accessible to others (Moor, 1997). Society views invasion of privacy as unethical. In the digital world people has become so reliant on technology. There is no privacy in the digital world. Everything that goes online can be accessed by others, and this makes it difficult for managers to identify matters and practices they should be concerned with, including consumer’s privacy (Ccnmtl.columbia.edu, 2014).
Today’s media outlet has become a source for a plethora of information for people of any age and background to search through and inform themselves. However, this information is not entirely meant for the pure of heart. The internet is a dangerous place, if one is unfamiliar with how to navigate it properly. The Deep Web, Hidden Web, or The Invisible Web, as most internet dwellers call it, is a term for the submerged parts of the World Wide Web whose content is not indexed by standard search engines for various reasons. With the right tools, these parts of the web are reachable and the horrors that await can mentally scar those who are not prepared for its mysteries.
ìAccording to estimates by the US Software Piracy Association, as much as $7.5 billion of American software may be illegally copied and distributed annually worldwideî(Ferrell13). Hackers ìpirateî software merely by uploading software bought in a store to the Internet. Uploading is send information from point A(client) to point B(host); downloading is the opposite. Once it is uploaded to the Internet, people all over the world have access to it. From there, hackers trade and distribute the software, which in hacker jargon is warez.
Third, why does the Internet need censorship in the first place? What do we need protection from? This lack of freedom would inevitably inhibit creativity, confining our thoughts to the realm of what is imprecisely considered “appropriate.” The role of censorship online is a controversial topic, but is overall unwarranted, as it attempts to inject morality into something that should merit personal responsibility. In other words, we should not rely on the government to block certain ideas for us, since we have control over our own Internet usage. While certain freedoms should be limited for the sake of protection, online freedom is not one of them.
Unfortunately, a human ability is limited and people cannot understand a very big dataset by themselves. Thus, the powerful tools are invented to help people to analyze large data. If there are no powerful tools then the huge amounts of data is just pieces of garbage because nobody would like to investigate them. In order to discover hidden patterns or useful information from tremendous data there is a process called “Data mining”. In the database, there are associations when many items are presented at the same time.
They may also fail to address the limitation of a dated hardware infrastructure that would take advantage of the communication software. At best these solution ignore the network, at worst they leave organizations vulnerable to excessive network maintenance. Limited scalability with large performance degradation. Today’s software approaches are: Peer to Peer The P2P approach includes options like Voice conferencing, video conferencing with limited basic VOIP options. The drawback is that this method presents extreme administrative difficulties.
These cases are the extremely negative ones that people want to and should avoid. The case of companies and third parties tracking browsing history and other information for advertising purposes hover over a finer line between good and bad. For some people, tracking can be considered convenient in terms of shopping for what they are interested in, and others may be uncomfortable with the thought of being tracked without knowing. As stated in the beginning, complete privacy is unlikely, but being informed about the tactics of the Internet can help one protect themselves and others in their care to be as careful and private as possible.
(The ENCODE Project Consortium) Controversy has arisen through multiple facets of the scientific community how this 80.4% has no empirical proof. The grounds for these arguments begin with the definition of function vs. functionality. ENCODE does not take this consideration into the relevancy of function and use the second meaning of function, called casual role. The problem with ENCODE using this definition means that this type of function, from an evolutionary stance, has no protection against mutation or deleterious causes that would leave it non-functional. Because ENCODE decided it was too difficult to find all of these evolutionary conserved protections they used the incorrect definition of function, difficulty in identifying selection does not justify ignoring it.
