People In China Stopped Their Cars On A Motorway To Film A UFO

These guys actually stopped their cars right in the middle of the highway and got out no less and just started to film this UFO.

They were all filming away like it's bloody normal to park up in the middle a busy motorway or highway (whatever you want to call it) then they even banded together to compare notes.

Talk about crazy.

This all happened in China. You never know what you will come across and guys if you see this video, please leave us your thoughts because I know when you see it you will definitely have something to say lol.

Which Female Archetype Are You?
It's time for another awesome horoscope! In honor of Ladies' Week, this one will be dedicated to female character tropes. Let me know how hard you laughed at these in the comments! Aries- Damsel in Distress You're about to be put in immediate danger (likely kidnapped and imprisoned in another castle) to create the premise for your hero friend's quest. Notable examples include: Princess Peach from Super Mario, Kallen from Code Geass, and most of the female cast of Sin City. Taurus- Evil Matriarch There's good news and bad news. The good news: Everyone fears you. The bad news: You're probably wicked, and not in the fun, showtunes-filled green way. Notable examples include: Yubaba from Spirited Away, Talia al Ghul, and Adria from Diablo III. Gemini- Girlfriend in the Refridgerator You're dead in an appliance somewhere. Don't worry: your death was not in vain. That was all it took to motivate your hero friend to do the right thing. Notable examples include: Gwen Stacy, Sarah from Castlevania, and of course the original Alexandra DeWitt from Green Lantern. Cancer- Defecting for Love You have a lot of very strong beliefs... and you're a hot second away from ditching them for a guy. You can't help it. He's dreamy. Notable examples include: Black Widow, Hilde from Gundam Wing, and Selene from Underworld. Leo- Misandrist You're not really a feminist, you just play one on tv. Don't worry, we'll send you back to the kitchen soon, and it'll be hilarious! Notable examples include: Benio from Ouran High School Host Club, and Superia and Man-Killer from Marvel. Virgo- Rubber Spine Forget Reed Richards, your spine is more flexible than a rubber band. As long as it means we can see your boobs and butt at the same time. Please see a chiropractor. Notable examples include: any series with excessive fanservice, and any art by Rob Liefeld. Libra- Manic Pixie Dream Girl Your only mission in life from here on out is to help others achieve happiness. Because you have such a surplus of it! Notable examples include: Scorpio- One of the Boys You had like ten thousand brothers growing up so of course you're super tough now. That's definitely not something you could have come up with on your own. Notable examples include: Samus, Clea from Doctor Strange, and Haruhi Suzumiya. Sagittarius- Pretty All Along You tricked us with your glasses and nerdy tendencies! But it's time to give up all of your substance because on the inside, you're a pretty girl and that's all that matters. Notable examples include: every teen movie from the 90s. Capricorn- Madonna-Whore Complex There are clearly only two kinds of women in the entire world: those that deserve to be protected, and those that deserve to be punished. For what? Who knows! Who cares?! Notable examples include: Betty and Veronica, and Sakura and Karin from Naruto. Aquarius- Classy Cat Burglar You're not really stealing things, you're just liberating them. From someone else's possession to your own! Fortunately people will be too dazed by your "charm" to do anything about it. Notable examples include: Catwoman (duh), Psiren from Fullmetal Alchemist, and Rogue from Sonic the Hedgehog. Pisces- Token Girl You're pretty much just here because it keeps people from complaining. At least you're not something water-based. Notable examples include: Black Widow, Smurfette, and Candy Kong from Donky Kong.

Women Are Clingy, Men Are Romantic
Why is it that when a man performs a wild, extravagant, borderline-stalker gesture, and he's SO ROMANTIC. A woman attempts to sweep a man off of his feet, and we're called crazy. Or clingy. Or obsessive. Why is it more socially acceptable for a man to overly express his emotional side but women need to play it cool when it comes to romance? Writes you letters everyday. Think of the Notebook. We're told to think that's super romantic of the guy, but if a girl did it she'd be seen as obsessed!! Throws rocks at your window. I used to fantasize about that when I was younger, hoping my crush would ride his bike over and say he loves me from the street below. But think about a girl doing that...she's probably stalking you. Shows up outside your classroom door to walk you to your next class. A guy standing outside your office or classroom door is sweet, touching, cute, but a girl might be a little obsessed with you, right? Trying to change your mind about dating them. Girls chasing after their crush telling them 'I'll treat your right!,' ' Just give me one shot,' or anything Heath Ledger said in 10 Things I Hate About You just sounds goofy to think about! Do anything annoyingly musical. Put on a performance in front of the whole school, hold up a boom box outside of your window, whatever it is, guys can do it and girls should sort of...not... Use pick up lines. Guys may get a huge eye roll for using them, but have you ever heard a girl throw out a pick up line at someone at the bar? Probably not. Ladies: Do you ever feel like you can't make any big romantic gestures? What's a romantic thing you've done? Ladies and Gentlemen: Would you be turned on or off by a girl doing a bigger romantic gesture that's usually just considered a guy thing? Personally, I'm all for everyone showing love in as many ways as they can! I'm not super into big romantic things for me personally, but I say guys and gals should be able to do whatever they want!
84% OF EMPLOYERS FIND CYBERSECURITY CERTIFICATIONS THAT ALIGN WITH MILITARY JOB ROLES AS THE GOLD STANDARD FOR HIRING
University of Phoenix and EC-Council release a joint survey that highlights the cyber certifications employers seek in new candidates A new survey from University of Phoenix and the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) found that 59% of surveyed companies with 100 or more employees plan to staff information security professionals in 2020. However, candidates in the job market may not have the skills employers are seeking. According to the survey, 67% of IT executives at companies with at least 100 employees or more require industry certifications as a basic requirement for hiring considerations. The joint survey aimed to uncover IT employers’ perceptions during the hiring process. The findings highlighted the importance of cybersecurity degree programs paired with stackable credentials aligned to military job roles and occupations. Of the 256 IT employers who were polled, 86% said that industry certifications aligned to cyber-affiliated U.S. military job roles and occupations play an important role when hiring candidates. In fact, almost half (48%) agreed they are either very important or absolutely essential and 84% consider them to be the “gold standard” when hiring “Cyber threats are growing exponentially, and IT employers must ensure that the candidates they are hiring possess the proper education and skills to take on these threats,” said Stephanie Benoit-Kurtz, lead cybersecurity faculty at the University’s Las Vegas Campus. “Organizations often don’t have the time or funding to invest in developing employees, and these industry certifications often provide the minimum standards to prepare professionals to combat today’s cyber threats.” Highly regarded cybersecurity industry certifications with aligned job roles and outcomes may be easier to obtain than you think. The survey found that nearly all IT executives (91%) said that they would be likely to provide tuition assistance to an employee seeking to earn a degree that helps prepare for industry certification aligned to U.S. military job roles and occupations. “We tend to look at the bigger picture of career opportunities as a nation, when we should be focusing on what skills and credentials employers’ value most when considering a candidate,” said Wesley Alvarez, director of academics, EC-Council. “As much as they love to hack, it is paramount that graduating students who achieved these challenging credentials understand how to harness their skills in a professional environment.” To help prepare the workforce for today’s cybersecurity positions, the University of Phoenix and EC-Council have worked together to provide students with opportunities that focus on degrees that help prepare students for industry certifications. The University offers an Associate in Cybersecurity and electives that are aligned to EC-Council certifications. In October, the University received the EC-Council Academia Circle of Excellence Award for its suite of EC-Council certifications. They include: End-user security aligned to the Certified Secure Computer User Certification (CSCU) Cybersecurity and network defense aligned to the Certified Network Defender Certification (CND) Ethical hacking aligned with the Certified Ethical Hacker Certification (CEH) In addition to these offerings, the University of Phoenix this month announced the launch of a certificate in cybersecurity policy and governance aligned to the Certified Chief Information Security Officer Certification (CCISO). The CCISO is an industry-leading certification that helps prepare professionals to succeed in the highest level of information security. During the polling, IT employers were asked which industry certifications they believe employees should possess and 44% said the Certified Chief Information Security Officer certification. The Certified Network Defender received 38% and Certified Ethical Hacker received 23%. “The College of Business and Information Technology is dedicated to providing working adult learners access to the education and skills that are in high demand in today’s industries. These certifications can help prepare professionals to stay one step ahead of cyberattackers,” said Kevin Wilhelmsen, dean of the College of Business and Information Technology. “The CCISO and other certification aligned programs are designed to help working adults balance work and life. Not only will they receive the technical foundation but be able to continue to work in their industry while pursuing their program.” To learn more about the cybersecurity degrees and certificates offered at the University of Phoenix, visit phoenix.edu/degrees/technology/cybersecurity. For more information on EC-Council offerings, visit http://www.eccouncil.org. Survey Methodology This survey was conducted online within the United States by The Harris Poll on behalf of the University of Phoenix from October 10 – 21, 2019 among 256 U.S. adults aged 18 and older who are employed full-time at a company with 100 or more employees, work in IT and have the job titles of CTO, CIO, Chief Security Officer, Chief Information Security Officer, Information Security Manager, Director of Information Security, or Cybersecurity Manager. Data were weighted where necessary by employee size to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. For the purposes of this report, qualified respondents will be referred to as “IT executives.” For complete survey methodology, please contact cooper.nelson@phoenix.edu.
