Subject: Urban Ecology Field Course

The Urban Ecology Field Lab is an 8-week interdisciplinary program that will train the next generation of environmental leaders in social and ecological methods so that they can engage with local communities for the betterment of both people and nature. The program will be held at The Field Museum in Chicago from June 11th to August 3rd, 2018. It will be led by anthropologists, ecologists, biologists, and conservation scientists from the Museum and surrounding Chicago-based universities who are at the cutting-edge of their fields.

The Urban Ecology Field Lab is open to undergraduates or beginning graduate students. It may also interest those who are taking a gap year. Your field of study is less important as a background to the course than your passion for science and human communities. You'll work with teams of students from different backgrounds and institutions who share this passion. You'll complement, educate, and inspire one another, as you address problems of common concern about nature and culture in the big city. Together, you will learn about the biological and cultural diversity that occurs in the Chicago region, explore anthropological and ecological approaches to the challenges presented by urban conservation, and develop skills that will enable you to conduct your own research projects.

The good news is a strong password can help make this type of attack highly improbable. The bad news is you need a “really strong” password. Cybersecurity experts have been telling us the importance of strong passwords for at least 10 years. Humans may be good at innovation and creativity, but we seem to be very dull and quite predictable when it comes to passwords. For Pete’s sake, and yours, create STRONG passwords!

The issue isn’t the strength of encryption used, but how the four-way handshake functions that can allow attackers to take the gory business of hacking offline. Offline dictionary attacks allow attackers all the time required to run computer programs designed to find that special password which is your favorite baseball team, your niece’s name, your dog’s name, your favorite car, your alma mater, etc. I think you get the picture.
