  • Joining in the military with a MS in Cybersecurity ?


    I just turn 34 recently this summer, I have BS in Information Systems and I am about to graduate with my MS degree with the concentration in  Cybersecurity and Networking (July, 20). Right now, I am working to get some additional IT certification (comptia, cisco, CIISP, CEH, S+, N+, to name a few) and may be add a coding bootcamp to sharp my programming skills and make background a little more stronger and competitive. Unfortunately, I don't have experience in my field yet because all I been doing is focusing to study. My only experience is been in the retail industry and I wanted to focus to more meaningful  career. 

    In my early 20's, I was used to be in the army for 4 years. My MOS in the army was used to be a supply guy (92Y). Just recently, I was talking with a PhD about having the idea of working for the military because his point was to avoid the competition that market has and get more benefits, experience and stability. I am kind of weighting the pros and cons on that. I don't know how the military would consider me with my background and to meet my expectations. I have no wife, no kids, 10k in debt. After I graduate, may be its late to say this but that when I starts looking for the American dream (if still exist). What should I do?

  • What are some of the application of Natural Language Processing (NLP) in relation with Cybersecurity? ?


    I'm taking a course in Natural Language Processing and this is my first course in Data Analytics. My background is in Cybersecurity. I just looking for some ideas related to security for my research.  


  • Which course would benefits the most?  Natural Language Processing (NLP) or Data Analytics using R and Python ? ?


    I'm a graduate student and I'll be graduating this summer with my masters in Computer Information Systems with the concentration in Cybersecurity and Networking. I am kind of undecided which course to register because in one hand, I want to graduate as fastest July taking the course in NLP. In the other hand, there is this class in Data Analytics using R and Python but that class would push my graduation further to Aug 22nd. I never took any courses in data analytics most of my courses were in software development in python, cryptography, blockchain and cybersecurity but nevertheless I don't know which one would give me most benefit. I feel that NLP is going to be miserable but I'll be out in no time. In the other hand I feel I can get better value but would make me hate my life even further. Like I said, Im undecided.

    What should I do with my landlord ?

    I live in studio apartment with my mom and my sister in CA. For the past couple months, I been arguing with a lot of tenants around my unit because of a water hose. This water hose, is located at the very front door of my apartment and everyone in the entire location comes to my apartment pretending to use it to either watch their vehicles or host their parties with other people. In the meantime, I’ve seen people near my apartment pretending to use the water hose to explore the surrounding to break into it. Hopefully no one dares to break in, but again it is not safe. I can’t install cameras because the landlord says I am not allowed and I can’t put lock in the hose to stop people coming to my apartment.

    I’ve been complaining with the management about this situation and I am having problems with all the tenants not respecting my space and my privacy. I got not problem for everyone to use the water hose because everyone pays for it. In the meantime, it’s not fair that everyone has to pay for something that they haven’t use and this creates financial hurdles on everyone. I don’t want to get evicted by these crook. What should I do?

  • Is Nissan Leaf a good car for Uber and Lyft for a driver ?


    I am thinking to buy a Nissan Leaf 2011 with only 30k miles for 6k. The reason that I am buying the car is because I want to trade in my Audi A4 2004 and do Uber and Lyft as a Full-time job. I know that the average gas mileage in the leaf is about 108 miles on electric. I just would like to know if it is a good choice in terms of maintenance or how expensive is it to repair the car. I really apreciate your comments.

  • Filing a discrimination charge against the military, opinion.?


    Today, I went to the military recruiting station to find out about opportunities for people who served in the military priorly. Well, when I step to the recruiting station an said the word "prior service" to the recruiter, they instantly told me that there was only one option for me to return and that option was to do any 18 series MOS, which is special forces.

    So, in one hand I already knew that answer but what surprised me the most, was that they were not considering me because of my prior injuries in the service. I am not going to disclose what my injuries are, but to me I felt that I didn't have any consideration for employment opportunity.

    Can I file a discrimination charge against the military ?

  • is GPA a critical factor to transferring to USC ?

    Hello Everyone,

    First, I would like to thank you for your time for making a comment in my blog.I decided that I want to study Political Economy and It seems to me that base on my research this particular major is offered mostly at private schools and USC one of the universities that offers it. It is not my number one choice but I was curious to know your feedback base on my situation.

    My situation is that I have spent about 6 years in my community college getting my CSU, UC,USC GE's completed and in which I obtained two AA (Liberal and Poli Sci along with all CS courses). I have done a lot of work and I give a lot of credit to myself but my biggest fear is that I feel that nothing really matter if my GPA is the factor for admission despite of all the work that i've done. Right now I am completely stuck taking courses just to raise my GPA which is around 3.07.The reason is still low is because I have withdraw from few classes to protect my GPA and also I suffered from PTSD while got out of the army.

    Despite of all that, I' feel more mature, better educated, very well aware financially of what it takes to go to college, and my next goal is to pursuit my dream in obtaining a degree in the next four years. As far as any extracurricular activity to make my application attractive is just my military service and the only way to afford my education is by my GI Bill.

    Well once again, I want to thank you for your time for providing me feedback and have a wonderful day.

  • Visual Basic Code help. Program dealing with calculating the overtime pay for employees.?


    First, I want to thank you in advance for your time and for your effort in looking at my program. The Problem that I am having is that the program is not adding the regular pay and the overtime to get the totalpay. The program is doing what it suppose as the logical operation in which if the hours are less and equal than 40 then it computes rate * hourly. And if it's greater than 40 its calculating the just the overtime. So I don't know why both variables are not adding together. Let me know what you think and thanks again.

    Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

    Dim ratepay As Double = CDbl(TextBox1.Text)

    Dim hoursworked As Double = CDbl(TextBox2.Text)

    Dim regularpay, overtime, totalpay As Double

    If hoursworked <= 40 Then

    regularpay = hoursworked * ratepay

    TextBox3.Text = "$" & regularpay

    ElseIf (hoursworked > 40) Then

    overtime = (hoursworked - 40) * (ratepay * 1.5)

    totalpay = regularpay + overtime

    TextBox3.Text = "$" & totalpay

    End If

    End Sub

    End Class

  • Question dealing with C++ Pointers and Address.?

    First, I want to thank you for looking at my post and making a comment. I'm trying to display the values in the array by changing the address in a pointer called dispPt. and change the for loop into a while loop(which I worry about that loop later). Unfortunately, the compiler its not able to display the values in the array because technically values in the array are known as double type but I have the compiler that it's picking or forcing them to become integers for some reason and creating the error "type double can not be initialize to "int" in initializer list. So how can I change the array type to pick the values in the array as double So, any suggestions would be truly apreciate it.

    Here is my code.

    #include <iostream>

    using namespace std;

    int main() {

    const int ARRAYSIZE = 13;

    int *dispPt; // declare pointer

    int i, rates[ARRAYSIZE] = { 6.25, 6.50, 6.8, 7.2, 7.35, 7.5, 7.65, 7.8, 8.2, 8.4, 8.6, 8.8, 9.0};// 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12

    dispPt= &rates[0];

    for (i=0; i< ARRAYSIZE; i++) { // worry later to change it to while loop.

    cout<<"The element"<< i<< "is"<<*(dispPt + 1)<<endl;


    return 0;

  • C++ Code help linker command with exit 1 bug.?


    First I want to thank you for your time in looking at my code and making a comment in my blog. I'm working with functions and unfortunately yesterday my code was compiling normal and today I just decided to open the project and run it to play with and suddenly it appears like compile bug located in the function prototype. Any suggestion will be appreciate it.

    Here is the code:

    #include <cmath>

    #include <iostream>

    using namespace std;

    void maxDeflect(double, double, double, double, double, double&); //prototype // & become result.

    int main() {

    double weight, length, elasticity, base, height, result;

    cout<<"Chapter 6, Exercise 3: Calculating the maximum deflection using fucntions. "<<endl;

    cout<<"\nEnter the Weight(lb): ";


    cout<<"Enter the Lenght(ft):";


    cout<<"Enter the Modulus of Elasticity of the Beam (lb/ft2): "; // the instructions does not mention for the input but unfortunately the formula requires the input.


    cout<<"Enter the Base(ft):";


    cout<<"Enter the Height (ft):";


    maxDeflect(weight, length, elasticity, base, height, result);// call for the function

  • C++ Code Review dealing with Functions.?


    I am having a trouble where Im struggling getting help to get running my program. I have try place like code review, stack overflow and pretty much the community I don't really get any help instead they blocking my question and really bothers the heck out of me. Sorry if share this setback but if you know about programming you probably know what it feels like stuck in the code. I would like to thank you in advance for looking at my post, making a comment about my code. The propose of the function is that I want to compute a formula which deals with statics. I think its quite easy to read but I'm kind of lost with the concept of functions. Here is my code:

    #include <iostream>

    #include <cmath>

    using namespace std;

    void Static(double , int , int ); // function prototype

    int main() {

    double result, base, height;

    cout<<"Enter a base";


    cout<< "Enter a height" ;


    Static(result, base, height ); // call the function

    cout<<"the result is "<<result<<endl; // output

    return 0;


    void Static(double result, double base, int height) {

    result=height*pow(base, 3)/ 12; // compute the formula
