Under GDPR organizations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater).
This is the maximum fine that can be imposed for the most serious infringements e.g.not having sufficient customer consent to process data or violating the core of Privacy by Design concepts.

Personvernforordning eu forordning
There is a tiered approach to fines e.g. a company can be fined 2% for not having their records in order (article 28), not notifying the supervising authority and data subject about a breach or
not conducting impact assessment.
It is important to note that these rules apply to both controllers and processors — meaning ‘clouds’ will not be exempt from GDPR enforcement.

Why I purchase my travel insurance from MyCover

I have worked hard and made a success of my business ventures. It is sometimes exhausting beyond description and I just get to the point where I have had an enough and need a break. I find interstate trips are ok and getting to the beach for the day is great, but sometimes it is just not far enough away, my customers know me very well, a number are good friends and they know where I am going and can resist just giving me a call, sometimes for the most frivolous reasons. I have found the way to solve this problem is to take an overseas trip. For some strange reason people treat you differently when you are in another country.

I do get the break I need and it is my recipe for health and well being in this crazy world. I do not like to take risks either, as I have seen what has happened to some of my friends when they have traveled overseas. You can easily get into predicaments which are totally unpredictable and if you do not have your arrangements in place you can be left stranded. I purchase online from MyCover travel insurance for my travel insurance policy and then have the reassurance that I will be covered if things go wrong. It is my way of making sure I am ready for the possible catastrophes, which could ruin my holiday plans.

I have seen friends take off overseas and all they worry about is getting to the airport on time, after that it is one day at a time. I think this attitude is irresponsible as there is so much information available now about the risks and what travel insurance can cover, plus where you would be without it. I leave home with the peace of mind that the MyCover travel insurance policy gives me.

Dominate Your Athletic Competition With Flexibility Training

Proper Flexibility Training is the first thing that is missing from the majority of training programs. The days of “old school” static stretching before competitions are over. A sound Flexibility Training Program can improve strength, speed, agility, quickness, injury prevention, and vertical leap.

In this article I will introduce you to 3 methods of Flexibility Training; Self Myo-Facial Release, Active Isolated Stretching, and Movement Preparation.

Self Myo-Facial Release is a form of flexibility usually associated with the Foam Roll. The Foam Roll is used to massage micro-adhesions from the fascia of muscles. It can be performed before and after training sessions. Each muscle should be rolled out for at least a minute, with special care given to tender spots. You would hold on that spot with the foam roll for 30 seconds. Self Myo-Facial Release has also been proven to help in recovery and regeneration when implemented post workout.

According to Aaron L. Mattes, inventor of the Mattes Method of Active Isolated Stretching, this type of flexibility “is an important part of warm-up, warm-down, training or rehabilitation. Specificity is important to achieve maximum circulation, oxygenation, relaxation, lymphatic circulation, nutritional deliverance, and tissue elongation.” Active Isolated Stretching focuses on 2 second holds in each stretch, and uses antagonist muscles contraction to stretch the targeted muscle.

Movement Preparation is a form of Dynamic Flexibility, or stretching through movement. These movements are best implemented before workouts or athletic competitions. This technique best prepares the athletes body for intense activity. According to Gray Cook, “Simply put, there are three areas covered in every exercise: stabilized static stretch, dynamic movement with stabilization, and balance drills to address left-right symmetry. The stabilized stretch helps increase muscle length and basic posture and pattern proficiency, the dynamic movement functionally prepares the body for complicated movements, and the balance drills ready the athlete for using both sides of the body as well as red flag any posture problems. In all, movement prep will enhance the mobility and stability needed to execute movements with greater control, strength, power, and balance.”
To see the above mentioned techniques, as well as movement preparation go Steve Krebs’ Fitness Blog mentioned below.

These three Flexibility Techniques will guarantee improved performance, and injury prevention. When all three are implemented, you will have a sound, functional, Integrated Flexibility Program that can be used for any sport, or workout session

The Incredible Hulk REVIEW

What does it look like when a comic comes to life? This movie is a pretty close approximation of my childhood recollection of what I appreciated about reading Hulk comics — really liked the action, the chases, the explosions and destruction and I wasn’t particularly sophisticated enough to appreciate some of the psychological complexity/human drama that Bruce Banner was going through.

The Incredible Hulk: C+

I’m not the ultimate Hulk expert by any means, but I had sufficient context about the Hulk from reading the comics and watching the TV series to understand the basic concepts of the story, and from the geek standpoint, see and appreciate the nods and cameos. This movie gave nods all around, but really was a summer popcorn action movie at its core — which anyone could appreciate as a cold viewer. With my level of context, I felt that some of the nods and layering of TV, comics, and movie were cool to see. I felt a level of foreshadowing with the appearances of certain characters in that it created anticipation for what some of these characters are or could possibly become, if this movie became a series. I guess the upshot of this movie and Iron Man is that there is a definite build towards something pretty big and cool (coupled with apprehension that it could all be a big mess, well pessimism aside, I have my fingers crossed).

Here are the issues of the movie, as I saw them. First, I don’t think there was a great deal of depth to the exploration of the whole character paradox that is the Hulk — in other words, the mild mannered scientist who avoids entanglements with others because of his dangerousness vs. what are the implications and consequences of a superhuman/super soldier. These were touched on very briefly, almost in shorthand. The agenda of the movie was more in line with let me show you, rather than let me tell you — so come along for the rollercoaster ride, we hope you dig the action and effects. And, well yes, I enjoyed the ride well enough — but almost like a frosted mini-wheats commercial, the adult in me wanted a bit more.

If you owned a Ferrari, you would want to push it past 2nd gear, although 2nd gear might have all the satisfaction that you crave. For me, I felt that the high powered talent that was in this movie was underutilized — Ed Norton and William Hurt are two big-time talents, and they could have sleptwalked, air mailed, etc. their performances for this movie. I reflect on the agenda of the movie, and believe that the basic plot framework and dialog was too limited for the talent available. But then, if they loaded it up, then we have Ang Lee’s movie again, don’t we? Double edged sword, you could lose the audience much like some hated the 2003 Hulk movie for its complex relationships, dialog, and structure.

So instead we have a movie where it is abundantly clear in hammers and dead horse flesh that Banner doesn’t want to become the Hulk, the army is chasing him down to experiment on him for a super soldier application, and Betsy Ross and Banner never really can quite get together even though they may be romantically interested in each other (a tragedy several levels below Romeo & Juliet in exposition in the movie). If you clear yourself of the redundant themes, the action carries you nicely throughout the movie, much like riding the log ride at the amusement park — mostly nice and at the end you get wet. You know the pattern, you’ve been here before. Do you care about being wet for the rest of the day at the park. If you do, you might be irritated at where it all ends — wanting more from something that is really limited. If you don’t, then maybe you go nice ride, or go, hey I’ve been here before, let me feel some nostalgia and have some fun.

And it all leads to the final boss fight where most superhero movies end up, where this time an experienced soldier also subjects himself to alteration — but retains conscious control of his transformed state, in contrast to the Hulk. So, is it better to be conscious in superhuman form and evil, or not be conscious of your actions in superhuman form? No answer provided, but very cool special effects on how a Hulk fight would go down in Times Square, comics come to life — very enjoyable on that level.

At the end of the day, that is what remains — movie as experience, almost like an amusement park ride. Suspend your disbelief for 2 hours and enjoy the ride. As a theme for the summer movies so far, it falls in the don’t analyze too much or it will fall apart. Enjoyed it while it lasted, but I’m not sure there is repeat viewability for me.

The Dark Knight REVIEW

Dark. Realistic. Created an unrelenting sense of dread, and a drink from the firehose type pace. Leaves you feeling gut punched; however, it is a very satisfying movie as well. The quality of this movie transcends that which would normally be associated with the superhero movie genre; it simply is a great movie.

The Dark Knight: A++

Unfortunately, not a lot a coherent thoughts about this movie are coming to me at the present moment. This movie is incredibly dark and creepy; indeed this is the first adult superhero movie. It may be the best of breed for Batman movies, as it finally gets the darkness, the villainy, and the tension between law and chaos right.

I was impressed with this Batman, as it is clear that the creators of this movie understand that he has no superpowers. He must use his intellect and tech to keep the city safe. He walks that thin line where his actions to defeat evil, are arguably an ethical stretch even if the greater good is served. He faces a villain with no motives other than anarchy, a total sociopathic loon. He must come to terms with the mirror, that he may not be so far from being that as well. How he first proposes to solve this problem, and where that road ends up, is one of the interesting upshots of the movie.

It is rare to come across a movie that is mostly seamless. That is, everything seems right and blends into the environment. There is no performance that is greater than another, they all seem to fit together very well to raise the movie to a very high level.

That said, there is a complexity to the lay of the land that is tremendous for a superhero movie. With all the efforts of the Batman and the police, the criminal element is still able to maintain an arbitrage of profit in the background. The equilibrium that emerges sets forth a dark implication, there is no way to control it other than to seek out the sources of the problem, even if they transboundary in nature. It is endless, and even the major crusaders in the city whether vigilante or law and order are subject to being turned. Then, when you add a catalyzing factor like the Joker, the whole thing can be blown wide open. The Joker promises free reign to the criminal elements, but his true aim is an unexpected deathblow to the entire system that threatens to wipe the board clean and leave chaos behind in its wake.

The aspect of the film that really got to me was the ascent and fall of Harvey Dent. To watch the well executed rise and fall of a great man was amazing and perhaps the most gut wrenching. To digress, if only the SW prequels got it right about Vader … The portrayal of this character is superb, beyond the foreshadowing dreadful physical scarring is a psychological nightmare which goes from predictable law and order to terrifying random evil, from a person who could love to one who no longer had the capacity. Amazing.

You get this great sense of attrition in this movie. Similar to the Bane storyline in the comics, one is left to wonder how long can Batman hold it together, both physically and emotionally. It’s not really a question of whether he disappoints in the end. It seems to be one of, when will he finally fall off, since the task in front of him is endless. The movie leaves him in a place where all that is left to him is to be the Batman, there is no exit, there is no stopping. That said, I don’t know where this movie can go from here in terms of a sequel. All that may be left may seem minor in comparison.

Excellent movie, highly recommended. Definitely one of the best movies we saw this year.
