Question 7:

The top 5 cyber security 2015 in South Africa are:
1.Ransomware
2.The Internet of things
3.Cyber-espionage
4.Increase in cyber theft
5.Insecure passwords.
Computers should have high security systems, individuals should not use things that are close to them as passwords because people can figure them out easily and hack into the cell phones and laptops easily. Companies should have one trusted IT company working for them, if anything goes wrong we know it I their fault. Cyber security has not been safe for anybody’s personal information.

Question 2:
Professor Lee Berger has always been interested in the history of Human Evolution since he started studying palaeoanthropology and WITS University.
Mr Berger took part in some work at the Gladysvale site where some discoveries have been made, discoveries of the hominid remains, things became interesting for him and decided to become a research officer for all the fossils.
Lee Berger made a discovery at the Dinaledi cave at Sterkfontein area. The remains of a hominid were found. They decide to name the remains Homo Naledi because they were found at “Dinaledi Cave”. The found remains gave the scientists answers of how long ago did these hominids live and for how long. It has been discovered that they were not killed by any animals but only because of natural causes. The caves where a significance that it was a disposal site for their death, because long ago there was no burial ground, cemetery or reliquary, but a burial ceremony took place for Homo Naledi because Berger found out that there was evidence of flower pollen in the grave as show of honour.
The other awkward part is that the paleoanthropologist team have been aware that the Homo’s were not humans due to the size of their brain cavities. Now question is, were they Apes?
The size of their bones could explain how old they were and how long ago they have died, the bones could also explain how they lived in their habitat. The hominids lived like baboons which tell us that they were not humans because we have not descended from baboons, but we have accepted that they have similar characteristics such as humans.
Mr Berger also states that they thought that the hominids might have been our ancestors because they were the first species to walk up-right and to have done the same activities such as humans.

Digital divide

Question1:

(Q.1.1) The Ramifications of Digital Divide is that not every part of the world has access to the internet/web. The social capital has influenced the way different parts of the world are unable to afford the costs of the new technology that have been developed to upgrading the internet access.
The human capital has been growing due to the skills and knowledge people have for upgrading the internet, therefore it has been hard for the developing countries to keep up with the finances within the global market.
Other countries have knowledge capital because of the skilled people that deal with the IT and other countries have lack of IT skilled technitions, therefore they are unable to keep up with other countries with the upgrades and developments taking place.
The government can help get more people to work and get taught to become IT specialists, richer countries can help poorer countries keep up with the upgrades of the internet access. Training people can help with the economic growth.
Rural areas cannot access the internet as much as people living in urban areas, workshops can be organized so that those living in rural areas can learn to use the internet and computer centres can be built, since there are schools in rural areas and it would be only fair for them to have computer centres or libraries too.
When coming to start-up capital, developing countries can be helped to stop them from being restricted to get full access to the internet.
There is a language problem where some countries don’t understand English or Afrikaans, and this becomes another addition to the digital divide, so giving an option of which language a person would want to use while using the internet would also be helpful but costly because it is going to be another upgrade.
