I developed a novel laboratory methodology for testing the durability of photochromic nanosystems using a first-of-its-kind prototype built in the Czech Republic. I used the Kubelka-Munk transform to evaluate the influence of concentration, temperature, and exposure time on color strength, and the one-phase decay model to evaluate how the photochromic response was lost over consecutive cycles of activation and decay. I also evaluated the effectiveness of the proposed methodology.
"Every minute, four companies fall victim to ransomware.
Cybercriminals achieved unprecedented success in Q2 of 2023, reaching the highest ransomware victim count per quarter observed to date.
Q2 saw a 67% rise in attacks compared to Q1 2023 and a 97% increase year on year.
But an exponential rise in the number of attacks isn’t the only problem:
Small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are increasingly targeted — business services, retail, and manufacturing are now the most attacked sectors. (...)"

75% of small businesses (SBs) don’t have a disaster recovery plan (DRP) in place
90% of SBs that take more than five days to resume operations go bust within a year
But 52% say it’d take them at least three months to recover from a disaster
Given these figures, it’s no wonder that 40 to 60% of small businesses never reopen after a major disaster.
The question isn’t whether you can afford to implement a DRP. It’s whether you can afford not to. (...)"

"After building my first website using Elementor Pro and my second using Divi, I see why you’d be looking for Elementor alternatives.
Sure, the Elementor Pro page builder has pretty much any design capability you’d want, but the lack of A/B testing, weak template and block library, lack of schema in the header builder, and decreased core web vitals’ performance are all major downsides.
Plus, its frequent errors and glitches, conflicts with third-party add-ons and plugins, and terrible customer support are enough to make you want to rip your hair out — I’ve been there!"

"While some see DAOs as a utopian revolution in the making, for others it’s just a silly fad that’ll never be legitimized by regulators. As with most things, the truth falls somewhere in the middle.
DAOs aren’t an instant solution to all the problems of traditional businesses. But they do solve some issues while opening up possibilities that were unfathomable before.
After giving you a high-level overview of what DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) are, how they work, (...)"

"Cybercrime is expected to skyrocket globally in the coming years, rising from costing $8.44 trillion in 2022 to $23.84 trillion by 2027. In 2023 alone, it’s projected to take an $11.5 trillion toll on businesses and nations worldwide.
The reason for this dramatic rise is that both our personal lives and businesses are increasingly online, giving cybercriminals more opportunities to exploit.
As a result, cybersecurity is now crucial to every single business — especially for SMBs. (...)"
