What to do to Prevent Being Hacked

There are so many ways to get hacked today. Hackers can replicate a site you frequent, asking for your username and password, and they collect this data without you ever knowing! I’ve been hacked and had to learn the hard way that Rubica, a personal cyber security company, has the tools you need to prevent ransomware attacks.

If you experience any of the following:

  • your computer acting suddenly slow or crashing
  • notifications about password changes you didn’t make
  • pop up windows from places you haven’t visited
  • emails being sent to a large number of contacts that you didn’t compose

You may have experienced a ransomware attack like I did.

Rubica is the only personal cyber security software that is strong enough to protect large corporations from ransomware but is simple enough for personal use. Your data is monitored in real time to watch the patterns you are making on the internet and prevent hacks from occurring. Rubica runs behind the scenes. This means all you have to do is download the program and let them do the rest for you. Don’t get hacked like it did, take preventative action now!

Mr. Jacob Lief Advocates for New Measures to be Employed to Regulate the Use of Donor Funds Says Andrew Rolfe

The Ubuntu Educational Fund which is found in the Eastern Cape in Port Elizabeth township of South Africa has done more than any charity or humanitarian organization to help disadvantaged children get a good life. In a country where poverty levels are deplorable and the living standards so low, the work of humanitarian agencies like Ubuntu Foundation are highly valued. Although many charities receive large sums of money, according to the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Ubuntu, Jacob Lief, most of the charities do microscopic in practical terms to improve the conditions of the people they are meant to support. During the annual meeting of the World Forum for Economics which was hosted in Davos, Mr. Lief decried the terrible situation and advised that new methods for assisting the vulnerable children should be evolved.


The keynote address which he gave was a changed approach from the usual blame game between donors and charities. Although he has always been against the restrictions and conditions donors attach to the assistance they give, Mr. Andrew Rolfe admitted that the nonprofits who received money did petite to help the poor children. The Ubuntu model partners with personalities like Andrew Rolfe who is a prominent board member of many humanitarian organizations, parents, and families of the children, teachers and community leaders to provide stable living conditions and quality education to the affected children. However, he criticized donors like the late Peter Lewis who put harsh restrictions on where and how the cash they donate should be spent and the kind of donors who interfere with the internal structures and administrative set up of nonprofits.


Another speaker, Patrick Boggan said that although it was becoming very difficult to get donors who did not impose such conditions, the presence of such conditions would greatly benefit the organizations being supported to be stable and well governed. The involvement of donors was a prerequisite for better management and sustainable development. However, Doug Wingo who runs Wingo consultancy and Andrew Rolfe felt that involving donors in the management would have adverse effects on the organizations. To be able to structure their programs, charities needed to be well staffed and financed.




Andrew Rolfe: Changing Lives through the Ubuntu Education Fund

The founder of the Ubuntu Education Fund, Jacob Lief, is an innovation leader in the non-profit sector. He has several years of experience and knows the pitfalls that one can run into while trying to make the world a better place. Jacob often speaks about events that happen worldwide. He came to a realization that the fundraising methods for the Ubuntu Fund were ineffective. In fact, he termed them as nonsense. He said that there was a smooth flow of funds but the organization wasn’t changing the lives of people. So, he decided to make a few changes to how things worked.


Andrew Rolfe, the board chairperson of the Ubuntu Education Fund, is working with Jacob Lief to revolutionize the world of non-profits. The two executives aim at changing the way non-profitable organizations approach donors. Also, they’re working on changing how donors offer their money. The new process developed by Andrew and Jacob is called the Ubuntu Model. Some donors like to monitor their donations. This, however, can be counterproductive. The Ubuntu model searches for wealthy individuals who offer donations with fewer restrictions.


Jacob Lief and Andrew Rolfe know the importance of their work. That’s why they’re focusing on improving the performance of non-profits worldwide. The Ubuntu Education Fund helps poor kids living in South Africa’s Port Elizabeth. The organization, led by Andrew Rolfe and Jacob Lief, focuses on spending their money appropriately to help vulnerable children. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that Jacob and Andrew want to change the way they spend their funds.


Finding people who are willing to give their money with no strings attached is quite difficult. This may lower the budget of an organization, but the funds are put to good use, as there are no strings attached to them. Jacob and Andrew Rolfe began developing a rapport with communities and families to create plans for every child’s health, education as well as stability.


Even though the Ubuntu model still needs some improvements, it has already yielded results that show its efficiency. The Ubuntu Education Fund has experienced the first-hand benefits of this fundraising model, so we should expect an astronomical progress from the organization.
