In the last five years, Twitter has grown to 100 million monthly users, says the company, with about half of them logging in at least once a day. The analytics tool was debuted at the TechCrunch Disrupt event where Twitter’s director of Web business development April Underwood said the platform is driving 100 million clicks per day to sites across the Web, reports TechCrunch’s Leena Rao.Underwood told attendees that the analytics tool will be free. The company also plans to make the Twitter Web Analytics API available to developers to incorporate it into their products.TechCrunch has video from Underwood’s announcement at the Disrupt show. On Tuesday Twitter announced that it’s launching a new analytics tool that will initially be available to a select group of partners as a pilot program, but will be made available to everyone in the “next few weeks.”The tool will enable Web site developers to more accurately measure Twitter traffic referrals and how well the Twitter features they’ve integrated into their sites are performing.The tool is essentially the result of Twitter’s acquisition of BackType in July. According to the company’s announcement yesterday, the tool will have three core functions: the ability to understand how content is being shared across Twitter; the ability to measure the traffic Twitter is sending to a site; and measuring the effectiveness of the Tweet button integration.

Russia expressed confidence that the long delayed concluding agreement with India on the joint production of the fifth generation fighter aircraft can be signed this year.The two countries signed an initial contract in 2010 to build the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) programme, however, they have not been able to agree to the final terms of the contract.”We are in the final stage of negotiations for the FGFA contract,” United Aircraft Corporation’s (UAC) Yuri Slyusar told the press at the ongoing Aero India airshow in Bengaluru, according to a Reuters report.The Indian RequirementsThe quibble relates to how the Indian version of the Russian-designed Sukhoi T-50 will differ from the Russian model, and over the amount of technology the Russians are willing to transfer. A Russian T-50 fighter lands at an airfield of the Sukhoi aircraft manufacturing plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. A new fighter aircraft seen as Russia’s response to U.S. advances in military aviation made a successful first test flight, plane maker Sukhoi said.ReutersPrime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday that India was no longer satisfied with weapon deliveries or assembling, and added that transfer of technology to local companies and production within India would be a clause attached to the lucrative deals.India is expected to spend as much as $250 billion over the next decade in modernising the defence forces and the equipment.Aero India 2015″We think there is a possibility to sign the agreement within 2015. At least the Russian side think it will be done in 2015,” Slyusar said.Meanwhile, the ageing fleet of Russian-made MiGs and French Mirage fighter jets are now being replaced with India-made Sukhoi Su-30s and its upgradations.The French are eager to see the ink dry up on the contract to supply 126 Dassault Rafale, which has been stuck over Dassault unwilling to offer the necessary guarantees for localised production of the fourth generation fighter jet.Fifth Generation Fighter AircraftThe FGFA aircraft possess more advanced design and build, which equips the aircraft with significant stealth capabilities and would provide operators with deep penetration hits in enemy territory.”FGFA planes are important in terms of future capability,” Air Force Chief Arup Raha said on Thursday, at the Bangalore air show. Russian Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA jet fighter lands after a demonstration flight at the MAKS International Aviation and Space Salon in Zhukovsky outside Moscow.ReutersRuha noted that a firm timeline for the closing of agreement was difficult to forecast.There are a total of five fifth-generation fighter jets in existence – the US-based Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II (the world’s most expensive defence programme ever), both combat-proven, though the F-35 has been plagued with issues.China has developed the J-11 and the J-20 FGFA, which could end up in the Pakistani fleet, who would be unable to persuade the Americans to sell them.The Russian Sukhoi T-50 forms the final name in the short list. The initial design has been agreed between the two nations in 2013, and they continue to work on the detailed design.In December, during his visit to the country, Russian President Vladmir Putin said that Russia would continue to remain India’s top defence partner.
Argentina vs Chile should be a cracker of a match ReutersTwo-time World Cup champion Argentina will take the field on July 6 against Chile for the third-place match of the Copa America 2019, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Argentina went down to Brazil 2-0 in their semi-final clash whereas Chile was handed a shocking 3-0 defeat by Peru.Lionel Messi-led Argentina lost 2-0 to Brazil in the semi-final which was a much-awaited clash. The La Albiceleste were the better team on that night but luck was not on their side. They went into attack a lot of times but could not hit the back of the net, instead, they hit the crossbar twice. Messi’s Copa dream took another hit and he has to wait for the 2023 Copa America to again try and win.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Imagine this fantasy: At your company, sensitive customer data is impenetrable. Hardware is secure. And every single IT specialist in your employ has the resources and funds to make all of this happen.Related: Expert Advice: How to Up Your Cyber SecurityBut, no, it’s time to pinch yourself and wake up. The reality is that no matter how secure the nonhuman end of things is, the mere existence of people using a system will always mean the potential for data breaches.Should we throw in the towel? Of course not. If we did, cyber criminals would practically rule the world.Instead, we should focus on increasing security awareness in the workplace, from the ground up and from the top down: We should teach workers how to handle data to minimize the potential of its falling into the wrong hands. A couple of strategies:Tell employees that a data breach could mean the loss of their job. This will give them incentive to become more security aware.Impress on employees the warning signs of a cyber attack so that they can more easily spot suspicious activities.Every employee, old and new, should be thoroughly instructed on security at the level of the individual computer. And new employees, before they officially begin work, should complete this training before accessing the company’s network.Install technology that will detect when employees are doing something they shouldn’t. The software will alert them in time to take corrective action as well as enhance their learning experience.Set up mock “phishing” emails to see who takes the bait. “Internal phishing” will teach employees how to be smarter and less gullible.So, what are some ways to maximize security awareness? Here are eight.1. Establish a baseline. Before you can get awareness efforts going, you must first collect all the metrics to establish a solid reference point. An example might be the results of the staged phishing. Metrics are important, as they will enable you to gauge the success of effort.2. Be realistic. Don’t think in terms of banning a certain activity, like involvement with social media, but rather of teaching employees to be judicious about it. 3. Use lots of tools. A program for security awareness should involve multiple venues such as video games, newsletters, mock phishing and whatever else comes to mind.Related: What Startups Need to Do to Be Cyber Secure in 20154. Be creative. Even if funds are scarce, you can still make the learning process more fun than drudgery. For example, give boxes of candy canes out for the holidays, but tucked inside each box enclose the company’s security policy. Employees will more likely read the policy if it comes with candy canes than if it’s simply mailed, or handed to them in the office by the boss.5. Seek high-ranking executive support. Once the “bigwigs” get involved, employees lower on the chain will more likely follow suit. How can we get “C-level” decision makers on board in the first place? Tell them that return on investment is contingent upon security. That will get them hopping. Another way to grab their attention is to send out newsletters specifically for them, which will add to their feeling privileged. In the newsletters, include information on security awareness.6. Recruit other departments. No department is too unimportant to be involved in security awareness. Get every department involved, even your housekeeping and cafeteria staffs. But especially go after your marketing, legal and human resources departments, because they’re in a position to make security awareness a requirement.7. Re-evaluate. Re-evaluate your new program every 90 days, without fail. This approach has been shown to be quite effective. To avoid information overload, emphasize maybe three topics at a time over the three-month period. Then, 90 days later, see what needs to be revised, based on those three topics.8. Hit close to home. Get employees to focus on themselves; don’t harp just on security awareness that affects the company. Make workers understand that security is about them, too, not only the elusive bigwigs. Talk to them about the most common scams and tricks cyber criminals use, and how to protect themselves at home, with tools such as firewalls and wireless VPNs.Related: U.S. to Establish New Cybersecurity Agency May 5, 2015 4 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
