Well done! Tell us all something we don't know. :-p

However, this doesn't mean that we can give up trying to secure transactions. The grams attack relied on Windows/IE security holes that needn't be there and that can be closed. And this type of attack demands much more sophistication than we have seen up to date (it seems that the grams Trojan didn't succeed). I gather from the description that the grams attack was relatively simple. Against a PIN/TAN banking web site, the Trojan would have to be really smart to succeed without provoking suspicion (e.g. "pending transactions" must show the users unsuccessful transaction and hide the fraudulent transaction). Okay, maybe the attacker doesn't mind provoking suspicion but this will increase the chance that the fraud is detected early.

It is a good essay ,i needed it , i’m a student thanks…..????

Next year I will work on a ballet performance together with dancers at an American university, Dartmouth in New Hampshire. With performing arts, architecture, - in all kinds of ways I look for connections.” A romantic artist lives for art and hopes to be able to live of it. Jongstra and Engbersen followed a different strategy. Their cooperation is a permanent search for a market. Who do they wish to work for? Where should the work finds its place? Engbersen: “We focus on educational institutions like schools and universities, on health care institutions, and political buildings”.


As long as this is part of the key, the key will have its faults.

What, according to you, *is* a secure alternative?

“Boucherouite” or "Boucherwi" are carpets made by most Berber families in Morocco since the 1960’s. A social design company named Butterfly Works is working with local women in 6 villages in the Sahara on the border of Morocco and Algeria to create Boucherouites under the name "Carpet of Life".

They connect western consumers directly to the women who weave the fabrics of life. Butterfly Works 's main aim is to create social cohesion and economic value for the women. In this region they are working closely with the family Sbaï (son of the lions) from the de Ouled Bou Sbaa tribe, historically the most influential tribe spread across Senegal, Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria and Mali during the time of the great Caravans.

Since 35 years, due to economic, political en environmental hardship, the nomadic communities have been forced to stop the caravan trade and to start new ways of living in the oasis, that used to be one of the most important trading posts on the way to Timbuktu.

Two things that appeal to me about this post:

My work is informed by three great passions: my need for sensory feedback and my love of both texture and natural fibres. At the heart of my work is the extreme scale the unspun wool allows me to achieve. For the observer, the scale provides the perfect platform to showcase the beauty and rawness of the natural fibres I use. The textures are rich, luxurious and have the ability to imbue both solace and joy to the handler. On a personal level, each piece is as much a physical challenge as a loving creative exercise and pushing the boundaries of what is possible is a huge driver.

However, knitting with unspun wool is problematic due to its delicate nature. To overcome this, I felt each piece once it has been knitted. This is no mean feat given that most of my creations weigh a minimum of five kilograms. The felting gives stability to the unspun wool and allows for a greater stitch definition. The resulting texture is both rustic and sculptural in its appeal. My self-taught process is laborious and often menial but it is equally satisfying. I suspect my lack of technical know how actually helped me push the boundaries of what was possible because I had no concept of what wasn’t.

Essentially, Little Dandelion is my quiet rebellion against mindless mass production and my loving contribution to a kinder and more conscientious world. I am currently developing my own Little Dandelion oversized knitting yarn so that others can experience the joy of slow craft and extreme knitting."

Thank you for this very helpful post!!

Trend Tablet is a huge fan of Little Dandelion we asked Jacqui Fink, the hands behind Little Dandelion to tell us her story. Here you are!

"I’m a mother (41) of three children and I live on Sydney’s Northern Beaches in Australia with my Husband Eric, two cats and a menagerie of wildlife who visit for a daily feed. I have a law degree but am otherwise untrained in fine arts, design and textiles.

I launched Little Dandelion in 2012 after a long and intensive search for a creative outlet. I had been searching in earnest for something to call my own and I knew it needed to be creative: the need to work with my hands was powerful.

To cut a long story short, in November 2009 my Mother received a life saving double lung transplant. In the weeks that followed, I found myself in a heightened creative state culminating in a dream that was as terrifying as it was profound. In the dream, a very loud booming voice told me that I needed to knit blankets and that the knitting needed to be “big”. Okay then! The very next day I started the process of bringing Little Dandelion to fruition.

I suspect the fact that the answer to my search for a creative outlet was so intimately connected to my Mother was no accident. My Mum taught me to knit when I was quite young. Mum was and is a profuse knitter and I noticed that it was a beautiful respite for her. As a child though I was too impatient to commit to the language of knitting to be able to follow a pattern. But, I did work really hard to perfect my tension and the consistency of my stitches. I also enjoyed the respite.

Fast forward five years, some intense experimentation and the making of many mistakes, I now produce by hand oversized scale blankets, throws and installation works using naturally coloured high quality unspun merino wool and other natural fibres from Australia and New Zealand and a set of massive knitting needles made from PVC pipe.
