Federal authorities, in an investigation of a scandal spanning three states and lasting 15 years, have accused a Clarence Mumford Sr. and a host of teachers in three states including Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee of cheating on teacher certifications. In exchange for payment ranging from $1500 to several thousand dollars, Mumford would arrange for a stand in to take the exam. In order for the ruse to work, Mumford created fake ID's and documents for the fill ins who were hand picked to resemble the teacher needing the certification.
That's an important question which each individual will approach differently. The first consideration is whether or not certification in general is the right solution. Generally, people are interested in certifications in order to improve their chances in the job market. Employers are interested in finding the most qualified candidates based on their specific needs. The more specific the needs, the more likely a certification might be the best option.

If the changing face of computing wasn't already abundantly clear, a study released Wednesday by research firm Gartner underscores the potential for growth in the smartphone and tablet marketplace. The study claims that Android could surpass Windows as the most used operating system as soon as 2016. The firm estimates that by the end of 2016 there will be 2.3 billion devices (smartphones, tablets and computers) using Android with only 2.28 billion using Windows. For comparison, estimates for the end of this year indicate there are 1.5 billion Windows devices with 608 million using Android. It is especially remarkable as Android was only released in 2008 while Microsoft's Windows has been the dominant operating system on desktops for decades.
Imagine this, as a teenager you've managed to reverse engineer what thousands of professional engineers worked on for years at the most valuable company on the planet. You're already a legend among your peers viewed as a man before your time. Next thing you know it's not the police at your door it's the HR department of Apple, the target of your deeds, offering you a cushy remote internship to help work on their security. This wasn't a dream for twenty year old hacker and Brown University student Nicholas Allegra, better known as Comex, the mastermind behind several Apple jailbreaks.
Engineering feats by Comex include Jailbreakme2 and Jailbreakme3which allow users to bypass Apple's proprietary system on iPhones and Ipads .
With the rollout of Windows 8 scheduled for October 26 fast approaching it's time to take a look at the changes in the lastest version of Microsoft's flagship Operating system. The first thing everyone will notice is the radically changed interface. In a huge gamble Micrsoft has tried to combine the style and functionality across it's phone, tablet, and desktop systems into one modern UI known initially as Metro. Heave smartphone and tablet users will probably find a smoother transition as much of the interface is optomized for touch screen use. With even such old faithful features as the Start Menu cut, users who spend most of their time on the desktop will likely face a steeper learning curve as some of the most basic tasks such as shutting down the system may take a little searching. App makers have acted quickly to add back some of the more familiar functions with some computer manufacturers even shipping new systems with support for the Start Menu added.

A recent Wall Street Journal article highlights a serious threat of our right, taken for granted by most, to resale our very own items. The first-sale doctrine as it is known allows copyright holders to enforce their rights only upon the initial sale, subsequent transfers, loans, and sales are up to the owner. This is the very foundation on which things like libraries, eBay, and Craigslist function.
The decision could effect your ability to resale items made overseas.
