Yesterday (29th May 2018) finished the module 3 of OXBSG01X - From Poverty to Prosperity: Understanding Economic Development from OxfordX on EdX.

This module was titled: Power,Identities and Narratives. Below are the notes, as I understood some of the things in the course

Carrying over from last two modules, which essentially talked about "Power" scheme of things, in which how from anarchy, first a centralised state is formed and then due to compulsion of power mostly, an inclusive state is formed. In module 3 we carried over this study to understand how the whole concept of "Power" is affected by two very important concepts of "Identities" and "Narratives".

3 Weeks of CYBER501x Completed

I always wanted to dig deep into Cyber security and ethical hacking stuff and once had even installed a myriad of tools on my old laptop, but those days were different and I could not proceed beyond tinkering.

This year, I jsut have got opportunity to dig really deep with the CYBER501X course of Rochester Institute Of Technology in Cyber security.

This course is part of specialisation on Cyber Security and is first of the four courses. 

I aim to finish all the four curses and finish the specialisation.

So far the stuff has been introductory and not too tough, but with 4th and 5th week devoted to Networking, there is a lot of reading and work would be required. In fact, I have finished the lectures of Week 4, but have not attempted the quiz fully.

I aim to review the lectures and then do it again. Not intending to do silly mistakes in Week 2 and 3, where I scored just 80%, which meant, I just passed those two weeks.

All this due to the hurry.

I am also putting up my notes on a course website
