Read this article from @KHNews @philgalewitz with great interest. A few questions, thread 1/x…
why does the web link say "surprise medical bill"? This was clearly an in-network claim, which, by default, can never be SMB? 2/x
The plan appears to be a high deductible plan, per the EOB. That's how HDHC plans work - even in-network, these plans have, well, a high deductible. Not sure how we got from that to the surprise medical billing part. 3/x

As part of the #TweetStormTuesday was thinking about the less obvious opportunities from the #COVIDー19 #pandemic

👇A thread on why #Indian #B2B #SaaS companies can make the most of this tragic situation and help usher #SMB companies around the world into the #digital age.
1/ In this world of #lockdown and #WFH governments everywhere have been proposing large #economic #StimulusPlan packages. #COVIDー19 has caught many businesses off guard.
2/ While industries like travel, hospitality and real estate were unfortunately predictable casualties, many small/medium sized (SME) companies across sectors have been disproportionately impacted. These companies have put off digitizing operations and are completely gridlocked.

1/ Several features of the not yet passed #COVID19 “3.0” bill (The CARES Act), pluses/ minuses—

1. -2% ⁦@CMSGov⁩ “Medicare sequester cuts” eliminated for duration of public health emergency (PHE)—ok thanks but could we get a complete elimination?
2. Extended ..

2/ ACA enrollment for uninsured in the federal exchanges;

3. Extension of 1.0 GPCI floor through 11/30/20— thx but why the cut off?

4. Feds covering Pt cost sharing for MCA, Advantage & MCD testing & treatment;


1. Both a “Sense of Congress” & Senate language....
3/ that would address #surprisemedicalbilling — what’s a sense of Congress you ask? No clue. Strength of statue? “Strength” of a UN resolution”? Not good if Congress punts entire issue to @HHSGov
Still reviewing Senate language—but are they frigging kidding us w/ cramming...

#Campaign in tweets - @Guardicore Labs in a new tradition; we find the attacks, you get to know them and learn the attackers' tricks and techniques. This time, let's get familiarized with "Lemon_Duck", a #cryptomining campaign involving a sophisticated #propagation tool. 🍋🦆
Before we start: all scripts, binaries and IOCs are available on our github repository. In addition, malicious IPs, attack servers and domains appear on @Guadicore Cyber Threat Intelligence portal. You're welcome to take a look :)……
Lemon_Duck starts by breaching machines over the #MSSQL service or the #SMB protocol. We'll focus on the MS-SQL flow. Once inside the machine, the attacker enables #xp_cmdshell to run shell commands. It will take only a single command line to trigger the rest of the attack.

1/ Today I’m nervously hitting the publish button on a big project. For the past month I’ve been obsessively analyzing over 150,000 small business websites to find out what makes them tick. That’s roughly 1% of all small businesses in the US.…
2/ I call it the 150k Small Business Website Teardown 2019. A lot of folks helped out with this gigantic project. Special thanks to @danaditomaso, @darrenshaw_, @davidmihm, @JoyanneHawkins, @lauratroyani, @randfish and @RobOusbey for putting up with my questions.
3/ To complement the crawl I ran hundreds of Google searches to see how these websites stack up in the rankings. I fetched #PageSpeed scores to see which sites were speedy and which were slow. Ultimately I collected over 300 data points for each website.

Can't Save Photoshop Files on Shared Folders Through SMB
Problem - saving a PSD on a shared folder results in this error:

The fix?
In Finder:

• If Show Preview is enabled, de-select the file you’re working on in Finder before you save.

Social media is powerful but if you want to make a lasting impact as a thought leader or entrepreneur, you need to host live events.

Here are my reasons why based on a lifetime of experience

(thread) #smb #crmchat #socialskillschat
Public speaking is the lowest cost method to transition from Unknown to Rockstar in your industry. It still remains as one of society’s greatest fears.
Simply standing in front of an audience and sharing your ideas & experience positions you as an authority. #socialskillschat
Hosting live events crowns you as the “Authority”.
💡When a person is introduced to a new way of thinking about an idea that they value or hold in high esteem they elevate you within their own mind.
As event host, you are attributed for helping people see themselves differently
