kiddle-search-engine-is-the-google-for-kids

 

A kid friendly search engine that promises to all but eliminate the possibility of your child stumbling upon adult content. The search engine is NOT owned by Google and has absolutely no association with the tech giant. Kiddle looks lot like the Google search interface we have been familiar with, but includes some cute child like tweaks. Instead of the familiar, white background there’s a fun outer space theme with a robot alien near the search bar. Kiddle uses a Google Custom Search bar which is embedded in the site to filter out adult stuff.

How is Kiddle designed specifically for kids?

It blocks a number of explicit search terms, plus certain celebrities which could lead to adult content being displayed . The site says: “Sites appearing in Kiddle search results satisfy family friendly requirements, as they filter sites with explicit or deceptive content. Kiddle promises your child will be safe in their searching. The logs are cleared every 24 hours and Kiddle collects no personal information. In case some bad words are present in a search query, The guard robot will block the search. If you wish to request additional keyword blocking, please use our keyword blocking form. If you wish to request additional site blocking, please use our site blocking form.

It looks like Kiddle might be the answer to giving kids free reign for a school project without worrying.Are you going to use Kiddle? Let us know in your comments.

Internet.org an Opportunity calling .

Standard

Every person joining the internet has a story to tell. Here’s a story from a student in Colombia who is using the internet to learn.Internet.org is a partnership between social networking services company Facebook and six companies (Samsung, Ericsson, MediaTek, Opera Software, Nokia and Qualcomm) that plans is to bring affordable access to selected Internet services to less developed countries by increasing efficiency,and facilitating the development of new business models around the provision of Internet access .
A year after its successful launched of free basic services in Zambia.Today, more than one billion people in 17 countries can use Internet.org. An application tool that has allowed people to connect to the web in the most remote of areas in order to improve and further there lives. Now, more people are getting online, using these free tools for health, education, jobs and communication putting an end to poverty, and discovering the value of the internet.
After launching free basic services, mobile operators are seeing people adopt mobile data 50% faster than before. More than half the new people coming online through Internet.org choose to pay for data and access more internet services within the first 30 days. In June, people used Internet.org to access online health services more than one million times.
Studies show that for every 10 people who gain access to the internet, around one person is lifted out of poverty. If we can connect the 4 billion people with internet access, we can help raise hundreds of millions out of poverty. An application for the free service can be found here for Android & IOS platforms .Alongside the app launch, Internet.org is also experimenting with drones and satellites to deliver internet to remote areas.
To continue making progress, we’re expanding free basic services to even more operators by making it easier for them to offer Internet.org. We also recently announced the Internet.org Platform to help any developer worldwide offer their services.

Cyber Crime

Cyber CrimeWHAT EXACTLY IS A CYBER CRIME

Cyber crime is one of the biggest threats all over the world. A Cyber crime is Any activity commissioned via computer, digital devices and networks used in the cyber realm, and is facilitated through the internet medium. It can include the distant theft of information belonging to an individual, government or corporate sector through criminal tress-passing into unauthorized remote systems around the world.

It includes from stealing millions of rupees from online bank to harassing and stalking cyber users. Cyber Crime also includes sending viruses on different systems, or posting defamation messages. Cyber crime has now surpassed illegal drug trafficking as a criminal moneymaker . Somebody’s identity is stolen every 3 seconds as a result of cyber crime .  Staying on the identity theft organization such as AASHA which means “hope” are working , helping to root out harassment against women of all ages from the society . “It is unfortunate that people are not educated in respecting other people’s privacy, specifically of women,”

Governing Bodies: 

FIA under NR3C  National Response Centre for Cyber Crimes has the exclusive authority to pursue cyber crimes under PECO, the Pakistan Electronic Crime Ordinance 2007, one of two laws that monitor Pakistan’s cyber space. The other is ETO, the Electronic Transaction Ordinance 2002, that provides for “legal sanctity and protection of e-commerce locally and globally”

Pakistan is one of the few countries where cyber crime laws are still in the pipeline waiting for implementation . Pakistan is currently facing the following types of cyber crimes .

Financial crimes
Cyber/Child pornography
Sale of illegal articles
Online gambling
Intellectual property crimes
Email spoofing
Cyber stalking
Forgery
Unauthorised access to computer systemsnetworks
Theft of information contained in electronic form
Virus/worm attacks
Logic bombs
Trojan attacks
Internet time theft
Password cracking
Buffer overflow

The offences appearing are triable by Court of Sessions, are non-bailable, compoundable and cognizable. Except the offences punishable with imprisonment of seven years or more. The punishment is for persons, groups or organizations who commit terroristic acts with terroristic intent using computers or computer networks.

All these offences are triable by the Information and Communication Technologies Tribunal whose principal seat would be at Islamabad and may hold sittings at other places. Till the time the tribunal is not established all the cases, proceedings and appeals offences appearing below will continue to be heard and decided by the competent forum existing under any law for the time being in force

 Conclusion: 

In the absence of Clearer Cyber Crime laws through which punitive action can be taken against those committing crimes on the cyber world in Pakistan, people are increasingly becoming victims of abuse on social media sites, internet frauds, etc. The complaint of fake Facebook profiles is the most rampant complaint where people created fake a profile of any person, in most cases of girls but men were no exception to this crime.

PML-N legislator Anoosha Rehman Khan, who is a member of the parliamentary committee on technology, receives many complaints of misuse of social media and harassment of women.

“I am very much on to address such concerns,” she said.

She admitted glaring loopholes exist in the legal field regarding child pornography, but said a select committee has been formed in the National Assembly to look into the revival of PECO 2007.

“All un-addressed abuses against women and children and other segments of society, whether through social networking sites or any other form of electronic means, will be addressed in the new PECO,” she assured Dawn newspaper .

However she could not provide a timeline for the urgent task.
