Additionally, through a virtual Strut Your Mutt Challenge, supporters can raise money to help homeless pets in their own communities or for national programs that help to create sweeping changes for homeless pets everywhere.Six events have already been held, but check below for the remaining opportunities.“When Best Friends started its work in 1984, there were approximately 17 million dogs and cats dying in shelters nationwide,” said Gregory Castle, chief executive officer of Best Friends Animal Society. “Thanks to the leadership of Best Friends, and the efforts of rescue groups and shelters across the country, today that number is down to an estimated 4 million. The donations raised during Strut Your Mutt are used to fund lifesaving adoption programs and spay/neuter services, so that, ultimately, we impact the number of pets entering and leaving the shelters. We won’t stop until we save them all.”Since 2010, Best Friends has raised more than $5.2 million for its animal welfare partners through Strut Your Mutt. The national goal for 2015 is $2.6 million.To get involved, start your own fundraising page or donate to an existing team, please visit StrutYourMutt.org.Special thanks to presenting sponsor BOBs by Skechers and national sponsors MINI and Nature’s Variety Instinct.The remaining dates are as follows:San Francisco – October 3 DC Metro Area – October 10 Los Angeles – October 10

Luxury hotel ditching key cards after hackers strike

first_img Tuesday, January 31, 2017 Tags: Austria, Technology Share << Previous PostNext Post >> PARIS — An Austrian luxury hotel says it’s ditching electronic room cards for old-fashioned locks and keys after having their systems frozen by blackmail-hungry hackers.The husband-and-wife management of Romantik Seehotel Jaegerwirt, in the Austrian Alps, says that one recent infection with ransom software resulted in the complete shutdown of hotel computers.They say they were forced to pay roughly 1,500 euros (nearly $1,600) worth of electronic currency to restore their network.Several publications incorrectly reported that the ransomware infection resulted in guests being locked into or out of their rooms.In a series of emails, the hotel said Tuesday that the infection only resulted in new guests being temporarily unable to get keys to their rooms.Hotel co-manager Christina Brandstaetter says the new arrivals were treated to champagne while they waited.
