      PAKIBASA: COVID 19 Prevention   04/15/20

      Sumunod na lang tayo mga pre para sa ikabubuti ng ating bansa at ng buong mundo. Kaya habang ikaw ay naka lockdown tumambay ka na lang muna sa APS makihalubilo or magshare ng mga magagandang larawan.    Pitong simpleng hakbang upang maprotektahan ang sarili at ang iba laban sa COVID-19 Ang coronavirus disease (COVID-19) ay isang nakahahawang sakit na dulot ng bagong coronavirus. Karamihan sa mga taong magkakaroon ng impeksyon ay makararanas ng hindi malalang sintomas at gagaling. Ngunit ang iba ay makararanas ng malubhang sakit, lalo na sa mga matatanda at mga may dati nang karamdaman. Narito ang ilang mga simpleng hakbang na maaari mong gawin upang maprotektahan ang kalusugan mo at ng iba.

      Ang mga payong ito ay maaaring sundin ng lahat, ngunit napakahalaga ng mga ito kung ikaw ay nakatira sa lugar na may COVID-19. 1. Hugasan nang madalas ang iyong mga kamay Ugaliin ang puspusang paglinis ng mga kamay gamit ang hand sanitizer na may alkohol o hugasan gamit ang sabon at tubig.

      Bakit? Lagi nating ginagamit ang ating mga kamay upang hawakan ang mga bagay na maaaring kontaminado. Maaaring hindi natin namamalayan na maghawak natin ng ating mukha, nailipat na ang virus sa mata, ilong at bibig at nahawahan na tayo. Namamatay ang mga virus na maaaring nasa iyong kontaminadong kamay, kasama na ang bagong coronavirus, sa pamamagitan ng paghuhugas ng kamay gamit ang sabon at tubig o paggamit ng hand sanitizer na may alkohol. 2. Iwasan ang paghawak sa iyong mata, ilong at bibig Madalas nating hinahawakan ang ating kamay nang hindi namamalayan. Maging mapagmatyag tungkol dito, at iwasan ang paghawak sa iyong mata, ilong at bibig.

      Bakit? Maraming hinahawakan ang mga kamay at maaari itong makakuha ng mga virus. Kapag kontaminado na ang kamay, naililipat ang virus sa mata, ilong at bibig at maaaring pumasok sa katawan at magdulot ng sakit. 3. Takpan ang iyong ubo at bahing Siguraduhing ikaw, at ang mga tao sa paligid mo, at sumusunod sa tamang respiratory hygiene. Ibig sabihin nito ay ang pagtakip ng bibig at ilong gamit ang loob ng siko o tisyu kapag uubo o babahing. Agad na itapon ang gamit na tisyu sa basurahang may takip at maghugas ng kamay.

      Bakit? Kung ang isang tao ay uubo o babahing, tumatalsik ang maliit na droplet mula sa ilong at bibig na maaaring may virus. Sa pagtakip ng iyong ubo o bahing, naiiiwasan ang pagkalat ng mga virus at mikrobyo sa iba. Sa paggamit ng loob ng siko o tisyu – at hindi iyong kamay – sa pag-ubo o pagbahing, naiiwasan ang paglipat ng kontaminadong droplet sa iyong kamay. Dahil dito, napipigilan ang paglipat ng virus sa tao o bagay. 4. Iwasan ang matatao na lugar at malapit na pakikipagsalamuha sa taong may lagnat o ubo Iwasan ang matataong lugar, lalo na kung and iyong edad ay 60 pataas o may dati nang karamdaman gaya ng altapresyon, diyabetis, sakit sa puso at baga o kanser. Panatilihin ang hindi bababa sa 1 metrong pagitan mula sa iyo at sa kung sinumang may lagnat o ubo.

      Bakit? Pangunahing kumakalat ang COVID-19 sa pamamagitan ng droplet na lumabas mula sa bibig o ilong kapag umubo o bumahing ang isang tao. Sa pag-iwas sa mga matataong lugar, nilalayo mo ang iyong sarili (ng hindi bababa sa 1 metro) mula sa mga taong maaaring may COVID-19 o sinumang may iba pang may sakit. 5. Manatili sa bahay kung ikaw ay may sakit Manatili sa bahay kung ikaw ay may nararamdamang sakit, kahit sinat at ubo lang.

      Bakit? Sa pagpanatili sa loob ng bahay at hindi pagpunta sa trabaho o iba pang lugar, gagaling ka ng mas mabilis at maiiwasan ang pagkalat ng sakit sa ibang tao. 6. Kung ikaw ay may lagnat, ubo at hirap sa pag-hinga, magpakonsulta agad – ngunit tawagan mo muna ang health facility Kung ikaw ay may lagnat, ubo at hirap sa pag-hinga, magpakonsulta ng maaga – kung kakayanin, tumawag muna sa ospital o health center para masabihan ka kung saan ka pupunta.

      Bakit? Makatutulong ito upang masiguro na tama ang payong mabibigay sayo, ikaw ay maituro sa tamang health facility, at maiwasan mong makahawa sa iba. 7. Kumuha ng impormasyon sa mapagkakatiwalaang awtoridad Alamin ang pinakabagong impormasyon tungkol sa COVID-19 mula sa mapagkakatiwalaang artoridad. Siguraduhing ang impormasyon ay mula sa maaasahang mga tagapagsalita – ang Department of Health, World Health Organization (WHO), o iyong lokal na health worker. Dapat ay alam ng lahat ang sintomas – sa karamihan ay nagsisimula ang COVID-19 sa lagnat at tuyong ubo.

      Bakit? Ang lokal at pambansang awtoridad ang may alam tungkol sa pinakabagong impormasyon kung kumakalat na ba ang COVID-19 sa iyong lugar. Sila ang mas nakakaalam kung anong tamang payo na dapat ibigay sa iyong lugar, upang maprotektahan ng mga tao ang kanilang sarili.   source: WHO

Speed up your internet and protect your privacy

Speed up your internet and protect your privacy with 1.1.1.1 Cloudflare DNS

For quite some time, when you speak of fast DNS service, any person with a knowhow would either point to OpenDNS or Google DNS as among fastest, with a query speed which does not exceed 35 milliseconds.

But not anymore — Cloudflare has just released its own rendition of consumer Domain Name System (DNS) which promises not only to keep consumers’ browsing history safe but also do so at the fastest speed.

Cloudflare, a company which came to fame by providing solutions against DDoS, launched the DNS resolver 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1.

Not only is this DNS service a fresh entry on the internet, it also made its entry with a record-breaking height which toppled leading DNS service brands. When Google DNS and OpenDNS’ average querying speed were set at 34.51 ms and 20.64 ms, respectively, Cloudflare’s 1.1.1.1 was recorded at 14.01 ms.

Although this difference in milliseconds may not mean much, particularly between 1.1.1.1 and OpenDNS, this miniscule number easily adds up in real-world setting. For those who are working at a rapid pace in the office, this implies being able to look up at anything on the internet with “neck-breaking” speed or with very little chance for delay.

A domain name service actually plays a big role when it comes to the internet, essentially as a foundation. In fact, much of the happening on the internet go through its protocol.

When the vast network of the internet is working with a string of numbers called the IP address, the DNS is essentially an interpreter which attributes names like “Google.com” to a particular IP address.

In light of the issue which compromised users’ personal information for monetary gains involving giant tech companies like Google, Cloudflare seemed poised at differentiating itself from the malpractice.

According to Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince, it considers its consumers as a “toxic asset.” Meaning, anything that its users leave behind, particularly sensitive or personal information, is not something that benefits it and thus must not be collected or, let alone, be left in the log for more than 24 hours.

That is a bold approach to a type of business which could actually reap it lots of cash if it chose to sell its client’s information towards entities that are interested about them like, say, Big Brother.

But, of course, claims such as what the company CEO said is hard to give credit by simply leaving the overall process by themselves. To counter this suspicion, Prince claimed to employ an “external monitor” which is given a task of ensuring to protect the privacy of its users.

Switching to Cloudflare DNS 1.1.1.1

Jumping to the new DNS bandwagon may be an easy decision to make for those who are aware of the goings-on about manually changing DNS. While it may sound dissuading to those who are not, the process is actually pretty simple and straightforward, regardless of which operating system you’re running your computer or smart device with.

Hi. Share ko lang yung na discover ko nung isang araw. Habang nag bobrowse ng random techy stuff on the interwebs, nakakita ako ng isang reliable and secure na DNS Server, way faster than Google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. 

Ang tawag sa kanya CloudFlare. You can look it up sa Google by using the keyword na 'cloudflare dns'. Yung benchmarks and comparisons, merong mga videos sa YouTube.

Ang kagandahan sa kanya, hindi lang mabilis, kundi secured din.

Below ung DNS na dapat gamitin:

 

DNS: 1.1.1.1

ALTERNATE: 1.0.0.1

 

After ilagay as default DNS, mapapansin nyo na mas mabilis ang loading time ng mga web pages nyo. Ako, personally nakita ko na bumilis talaga loading time.

Don't expect na bibilis ang download and upload speed nyo, kasi walang kinalaman ito sa bandwidth ng internet nyo.

Hope makatulog sa inyo, para hindi na mabottleneck ng mabagal na default DNS resolvers ng ISPs. :APS_thumbsup:
