Publié par Mély

"New problems with the modern TECHNOLOGY....

This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.
A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.

When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.

 The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.



 I never thought of this.......

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet etc,was stolen.
20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says 'I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.'
When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral of the lesson:

 Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.
Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc....
And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.
Also, when you're being text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you.

Hello ! Here is my presentation of the text:

This document is a text. We don't know the name of this author neither the date.
It can be an extract of a magazine as it speaks about an actual issue in our society. The title:"........." shows that we have to deal with something new in relation to the modern technology.
The writer gives us two exemples to explain the issue. Thus, two different stories are described to show a bad reality: the way we can be victims of robbery.
The first one is about a GPS robbery. Not only thieves have stolen the GPS into a car but also they had an important information in it that permitted them to steal more. 
The writer analyses the situation and indicates how we can avoid those problems. He advices us to put a closer direction to find our way back home but not the accurate place where we leave.
The second story is about another robbery. Like the author, we wouldn't have thought that it would be a problem but reading the story, we become aware of the fact that we should pay attention to
our names' list into our cell phones. Actually, just because of a nickname, a thief can identify your husband or wife and ask for a pin number. The author describes how a thief got more information
about somebody's private life until having a bank account's pin number !
At the end of the text, the narrator gives us a useful moral to make us think twice. He gives us some solutions for people in general to protect  their items and money.
In my opinion, this text is very interesting because it shows a hidden reality. It gives us the thieves point of view, how they act. Moreover, it gives us some clues, concrete solutions for us. The
writer intends to make us react on those stories (I guess real), so that we wouldn't have such problems. Through this text, I've learnt something for my all day life so I'm satisfied.

J'espère que ça va...j'ai sûrement oublié des choses mais j'ai marqué ce qui me semblait essentiel en essayant d'analyser sans répéter le texte....

Je mettrai en ligne ce que j'ai fait dès que j'aurai un moment (je pense jeudi soir pas avant car avec tout ce que
j'ai à faire... et puis je n'aurai pas internet pendant 2jours donc ça sera difficile..) mais sinon ce que tu as fait est bien... c'est en gros ce qu'il faut faire comme présentation..je pense
qque tu tiens 5 bonnes minutes...il ne reste plus qu'à se débrouiller pour répondre aux questions du jury... Je mettrai en ligne les questions que le prof nous posera en cours sur ce texte... Mon
cours est le 5 décembre ... donc il faut encore attendre pour les avoir mais ça vient bon...
A très bientôt...

Mély 13/11/2009 19:13

Pour les textes, moi je mets en situation et je les commente, j'essaye de trouver des idées de questions qui
pourraient être posées par le jury...
Donc, si ça te tente de faire une présentation (commentaire) du texte, n'hésite pas !
A bientot

Coucou !
Je vais commencer par bosser ce texte alors (ce week end je pense), et je posterai un commentaire dès que j'aurai fait quelque chose ! Je vais le faire sans leçon ni dico donc ça risque de donner
quelque chose de vraiment vraiment pas terrible, notamment au niveau de la conjugaison ! Enfin tu verras ça
Bonne journée

Coool, ne t'inquiète pas pour les fautes, le but est d'apprendre en faisant justement des fautes... C'est comme cela
qu'on avance ! Enfin c'est mon avis !!!
Bon courage alors pour ce texte qui n'est pas trop dur, tu verras... Ne t'arrête pas sur les mots que tu ne comprends pas et fais une compréhension d'ensemble ! Ca t'aidera... Enfin
