    The Self and the Knowing-Self:
    I am not opposed to the practice of Yoga and Meditation to avoid or escape from the problem of stress for brief intervals of time.
    We need to cope with the problem of stress in our daily lives as we lack the power or privilege to alter the external circumstances contributing to or aggravating stress. Particularly, there are several occupations which demand the role players to endure the stress without reducing or avoiding the stress-inducing factors.
    I divide the man into two categories; these are, 1. The Self, and 2. The Knowing-Self. The Self represents the Physical, Mental, and Social Being that experiences the stress. The Knowing-Self is that part of the brain called the Reticular System of the Brain Stem that processes the information from various sources to compose the contents of consciousness which get translated into cortical awareness.
    In my analysis, the Knowing-Self can help in promoting stress-tolerance aswell as stress-resistance even when the man has no direct ability to change or alter the stress-inducing environmental factors including the psychogenic stress caused by one's own thoughts, moods, and feelings.

    Yahoo mail and website down worldwide, Leaves users in the Lurch
    The Yahoo! Website and Yahoo Mail is down across the globe causing frustrated users to take to social media to express concern. Yahoo mail, one of the most popular email services after Google’s Gmail, has been down since 12:08pm Indian Standard Time (IST).
     
    While users across the globe are unable to access the services, the problem seems to be concentrated in the European region with places such as United Kingdom (UK), Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, and Greece amongst the worst affected and faced severe outages. 
     
     
    Fortunately, most of India seems to have escaped this outage with the exception of metro cities such as Bangalore, Mumbai and Chennai. The outage has also affected services in countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and also Western and Eastern Coasts of United States (USA) where cities like San Francisco, New York, New Jersey and Los Angeles are located. 
     
    While the reason for the outage is still not clear, Yahoo Customer Care put out a tweet saying, “You may not be able to access some of our services, including email. Our top priority right now is getting this fixed. We appreciate your patience.” 
     
     
    A couple of  hours later, Yahoo! official account tweeted another generic statement asking people to bear with the inconvenience. 
     
     
    However, users of Yahoo mail rightly took to twitter to vent out their frustration. One user commented, “Some of our service"? Your entire network is down. You are losing your customers money...including me. Unbelievable.”
     
     
    Yahoo has not give any specific timeline with regard to when the services are likely to be restored. Yahoo India has an official twitter account, but it has not posted any update. 
     
    Yahoo which used to be one of the leading tech companies in world has been facing stiff competition from Google and Facebook. Since the year 2017, a major share in the company is now owned by Verizon Media.

    Google secretly sharing users' data with advertisers: Report
    Google is allegedly relaying your personal information to advertisers via hidden web pages, allowing it to circumvent the European Union privacy regulations, new evidence submitted to Ireland's Data Protection Commission has revealed.
     
    The Data Protection Commission began an investigation into Google's practices in May after it received a complaint from privacy-focused browser maker Brave that Google was allegedly violating the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), CNET on Wednesday quoted a Financial Times report.
     
    Johnny Ryan, chief policy officer for Brave, submitted the new evidence, and discovered that Google allegedly used a tracker containing web browsing information, location and other data and sent it to advertising companies via webpages that "showed no content".
     
    Ryan's evidence showed that Google had "labelled him with an identifying tracker that it fed to third-party companies that logged on to a hidden web page".
     
    Google responded, saying it doesn't serve "personalized ads or send bid requests to bidders without user consent".
     
    According to the Data Protection Commission, the purpose of its inquiry "is to establish whether processing of personal data carried out at each stage of an advertising transaction is in compliance with the relevant provisions of the GDPR.
     
    "The GDPR principles of transparency and data minimisation, as well as Google's retention practices, will also be examined," it had said.
     
    The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on Wednesday directed Google to pay a record $170 million over YouTube's child privacy violations.
     
    The settlement requires Google and YouTube to pay $136 million to the FTC and $34 million to New York for allegedly violating the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) Rule.
     
    In a complaint filed against the companies, the FTC and New York Attorney General alleged that YouTube violated the COPPA Rule by collecting personal information -- in the form of persistent identifiers that are used to track users across the Internet -- from viewers of child-directed channels, without first notifying parents and getting their consent.
     
    YouTube earned millions of dollars by using the identifiers, commonly known as cookies, to deliver targeted ads to viewers of these channels, according to the complaint.
