1. 5 easy ways to protect yourself from hackers20:37[−]

In a time where companies, celebrities, and even governments are coming under cyber-attacks, getting hacked might seem inevitable. But according to former NSA hacker David Kennedy, there are steps you can take to prevent it from happening to you. Kennedy shares his five must-do tips for protecting yourself from hackers. Following is a transcript of the video.

David Kennedy: "Mr. Robot" is probably one of the most accurate portrayals of what hackers can actively do. If you're interested in hacking and don't understand a lot of this, the TV show itself actually employs hackers to work on the show to depict real-life hacks that could happen in real life and it's a very very accurate portrayal of everything that we see in today. From being able to hack Smartphones to getting access to a big corporation and being able to bring them to their knees from a cyber perspective.

So what's the top five things that you can do to make yourself more secure both at your business and your home?

Amazon Prime Day Amazon Best Tech Deals 4x3

Updated as of July 17 at 1:37 p.m ET: Amazon Prime Day got off to a rocky start on Monday, July 16, with the website experiencing major outages due to heavy traffic, and Prime members unable to take advantage of deals. By evening, thankfully, Amazon seemed to have sorted itself out, and the site was back to working as normal.

Tuesday, July 17, is a new day for Amazon and for Prime members eager to save on the best of everything.

We've been covering Prime Day since it started four years ago in 2015, and we have to admit that this Amazon Prime Day has surprisingly great tech deals compared to those from previous years — on headphones from Audio-Technica, Sony, and Bose, Samsung Galaxy smartphones, Asus gaming laptops, Anker battery packs, and a myriad of other devices. The deals are so good, in fact, you could say they caused one of the biggest websites on the internet to crash.

To save you time today, we've rounded up the very best tech deals on Amazon right now and separated them into categories. These deals are typically the hardest to find during Prime Day, and often the fastest to sell out.

We'll be continually updating this list throughout the rest of Prime Day (which ends at 11:59 p.m. PT tonight, FYI) with new tech deals as we find them and as more Amazon Lightning deals become available, and removing items that are no longer on sale or out of stock, so check this list often for the latest updates so you don't have to spend too much time shopping and can get on with your day.

This is our updated list of the best tech deals Prime Day 2018 has to offer. Keep scrolling to check out our full list:

4. Why soccer players "flop" so much20:24[−]

Some soccer players seem to overreact to the slightest foul during a match, rolling around or throwing themselves in the air, why? To find out we asked former World Cup assistant referee Sean Hurd. Following is the transcript of the video.

Sean Hurd: You know, we've seen it certainly in this World Cup where players have exaggerated, perhaps, some fouls. This goes back to the speed of play. The naked eye could only see this so fast, and these players are moving at tremendous speed, and pace, and have a lot of physical strength. And so, what may seem like an exaggeration, in some cases, is simply speed and physicality.

It doesn't take much to throw a player off of their balance or get them slightly off on their touch, or what have you. It doesn't take very much. So, part of it is judging, "Okay, was there contact?" And if there was, how much force of contact was there, and did the outcome warrant a foul? Flopping is a convenient way to identify what people think players are doing, and in some cases, certainly, players are exaggerating. And so, referees, it's very difficult for us to be the judge to say, "How much contact does it take to throw a world-class player off of their particular game?" And, the reality is, sometimes it doesn't take very much.

5. Here's how the Trump administration plans to reunite thousands of immigrant kids who were separated from their parents20:24[−]

migrant family reunitedAssociated Press/Paul Sancya

  • The government submitted a plan to a federal judge over the weekend on how it intends to reunite the thousands of older immigrant children it separated from their parents.
  • The Trump administration is racing against a July 26, court-ordered deadline to reunite 2,551 children between the ages of five and 17.
  • The government has so far reunited at least 58 of 103 children younger than five.

The Trump administration is fast approaching a court-ordered July 26 deadline to reunite the 2,551 children between the ages of five and 17 that it separated from their parents in recent months.

The effort is the culmination of months of controversy around the Trump administration's now-halted " zero tolerance" policy, which sparked a public uproar, prompted multiple lawsuits, and resulted in a federal judge ordering the government to reunite the families within weeks.

6. 8 divorce horror stories from the people who have been through it — and their lawyers20:22[−]

Divorcefizkes/Shutterstock

  • Divorce can be a difficult process, no matter how amicable your separation may be.
  • According to the US Census Bureau, divorce rates are on the rise among adults 50 and older, roughly doubling since the 1990s.
  • Here are eight of the worst divorce horror stories from both clients and lawyers.

Divorce is never easy, and among certain age groups, divorce rates are increasing. For instance, since the 1990s, the divorce rate has doubled among adults 50 years old and up, according to 2015 statistics from the National Center for Health Statistics and US Census Bureau, the Pew Research Center reported.

Of course, some divorces go better than others — while some are amicable, others are the opposite.

Toni Coleman, a psychotherapist and relationship coach, said that divorce may not always go as well as planned. "People often underestimate the potential stress and fallout that they will face when they decide to divorce," she told Business Insider.

"Too often, they assume their partner will be reasonable and will want to work together in order to minimize the emotional and financial toll on themselves and any children they may share."

But that isn't always the case. Here, eight people share their divorce horror stories.

He scammed me.

ESB Professional/Shutterstock

"In our less than seven-month marriage, my then-husband schemed and scammed between $60,000-100,000 from me. In the almost year-long courtship, he groomed me.

"I'm about the fifth or sixth person he's scammed, and I got out pretty quickly — but I'm in so much debt because of him. I'm trying to save my credit and make payments while hoping I'll recoup some or any of my money through the legal system."

— Anonymous, 39, submitted with permission by Joseph A. Davis of Fit Divorce Planning



He committed fraud.

atalie Behring/WCPV via Getty Images

"In this case, the parties' divorce was ongoing for several years. Lawyers working for both parties were engaged in valuing the marital estate, which included substantial debt. At primary issue, the valuation of the husband's business, a printing and advertising company. The company was (allegedly) in the cellar, barely scraping by, and under significant debt. The warehouse had, literally, been flooded by recent rainstorms.

"As a result of all of these events, the wife's attorneys (not us!) and the wife, upon the recommendation of the forensic accountant that had been appointed by the court to perform valuation issues and forensic work, agreed that the value of the business was minimal, at best. A settlement agreement was signed with wife waiving her rights to the business for just a minimal payout (which was to be paid out to her over five years).

"Fast forward 363 days after the divorce: Wife learns that not only had husband sold his business shortly after the parties' divorce, but that he was even hired by the company to run their new division! She came and hired us, with two days to go to reopen the divorce case (which has a one-year look back) on the basis of the husband's fraud.

"After working around the clock, we filed an application with the court, which was granted, compelling the husband to provide the details about the sale. What was found was unbelievable: the husband had sold the business literally the same day that he had signed the settlement agreement and the parties' were divorced!

"He had lied to his lawyer, lied to the forensic accountant, and lied to the court. Suffice it to say, months and months of litigation ensued, ultimately culminating in the wife's receipt of a substantial additional settlement. Lesson to be learned: Investigation is key."

Karolina Dehnhard, divorce attorney



I took on excessive legal costs.

Tyshchenko Photography/Shutterstock

"In 2009, I remarried. There had been years when my wife's ex-husband legally and financially bullied her as a single mother.

"However, I never imagined that nine years later, my total legal costs would exceed $60,000 because of her ex-husband's harassing lawsuits and non-compliance with court orders. I ended up writing an eBook about it, ' Dispute It – A Layman's Guide on How to Get an Attorney Refund & File a Bar Grievance.'"

8. 10 simple summer desserts you can make on a grill20:19[−]

fruit on grillDanielle Nee/SpoonUniversity

When the summer temperatures are reaching record highs, the last thing you want to do is linger over a hot oven and make crowd-pleasing desserts for your next outdoor get-together. Instead, you’d probably love to know that you can use your grill to get the same mouth-watering burst of summery sweetness you'd get from an oven.

We spoke to some master chefs about all those tasty treats that really taste better on the grill. Below are some of the delectable desserts they recommend making this summer.

Grilled dulce de leche bread pudding with charred mangos can be made on the grill.

Business Insider

"Made with a custard base, bread cubes, and a swirl of dulce de leche, this warm dessert tastes wonderful when made on a hot grill," Jessica Scott, executive pastry chef at Puesto in San Diego, told INSIDER. Scott said bread cubes, dulce de leche, and whipped cream can be easily found at your local grocery store.

To make the dessert, she recommends preparing the custard base and mangos (sliced, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, and charred on the grill) ahead of time. To serve this decadent bread pudding dessert, Scott suggested making individual foil packets of bread pudding topped with your charred mango and whipped cream.

"The ingredients are simple, and the batter can be made ahead of time and thrown in a fridge (or cooler) until you’re ready to fire up the grill," Ann Kirk, executive pastry chef at Puesto, told INSIDER.

Summer fruits (think strawberries) pair well with your olive oil cake.

"I love to make grilled strawberry shortcake skewers with angel food cake and strawberries," Zach Sass, executive sous chef at Nashville Underground, told INSIDER.

To make this dessert, Sass recommended brushing store-bought angel food cake with some strawberry jam and putting it on the grill for a few minutes. This will help the jam caramelize, and give the cake more flavor, he said. Once you take your skewers off the grill, feel free to add whipped cream and serve.

9. The 33 longest-running reality TV shows of all time20:19[−]

keeping up with the kardashiansBrian Bowen Smith/E!

Reality TV shows are a guilty pleasure for many people, whether they care to admit it or not.

For decades, reality series have given viewers memorable villains, epic couples, and plenty of shocking moments.

There is also no short supply of different kinds of reality shows, from competitions to makeovers. While some don't last too long, there are others that become so popular that they remain on TV for years, providing numerous seasons of enjoyment.

With the return of "Fear Factor" on MTV on Tuesday, July 17 at 10 p.m. ET, here are the longest-running reality TV shows of all time.

"Cops" (1989 to present)

SPIKE

Paramount Network's "Cops" has been on air consistently since 1989. On the show, real-life cops travel with cameras to give viewers an inside look at what the occupation entails, from high-speed pursuits to drug busts and robberies.

Biggest stars: Each episode highlights a different law enforcement officer from across the country.



"The Real World" (1992 to present)

MTV

When "The Real World" first aired on MTV in the '90s, the idea was to follow several young people living together in the same city, experiencing the same things that typical youths are forced to confront — like religion and sexuality. The first season took place in New York City, while the most recent season (season 32) took place in Seattle, Washington.

Biggest stars: One of the most successful stars from "The Real World" is Jamie Chung, who is now an actress. Chung had a recurring role on season three of "Gotham" and currently stars as Blink on FOX's "The Gifted."



"The Challenge" (1998 to present)

MTV

MTV's "The Challenge" has been part of the network since it first aired in June 1998. Each season, familiar faces from other MTV shows (like "Are You the One?" "The Real World," and "Road Rules") and new hopefuls complete tasks with the goal of getting the cash prize at the end of the competition.

Biggest stars: In November 2017, MTV launched "The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars," which featured previous champions facing off against celebrities. Stars on the show included Shawn Johnson, MTV's Matt Rife, rapper and actor Romeo Miller, and NFL player Terrell Owens.

10. Gap is following J.Crew in abandoning its bridal business as weddings become more casual. Here's where you can buy affordable bridesmaid dresses now. (GPS)20:17[−]

BHLDNFacebook/BHLDN

  • Gap Inc.-owned Weddington Way sent an email to customers on Monday confirming that it had wound down all operations.
  • The store follows in the footsteps of J.Crew, which retreated from bridalwear in 2016 amid flagging sales.
  • We put together a list of brands offering bridesmaid dresses that cost between $68 and $328.

Weddington Way has officially closed.

On Monday, the Gap-owned bridesmaid-dress retailer sent an email to customers confirming that it had wound down all operations besides its customer-service platform, which will be available for the next month.

Weddington Way sold bridesmaid dresses and bridal accessories online, in 13 US test stores, and in some Banana Republic stores. It sought to capitalize on the casualization of the bridalwear industry by offering ready-to-wear designs in regular sizes that didn't require alterations.

The company launched in 2011 and was acquired by Gap Inc. in 2016.

Weddington Way follows in the footsteps of one of its competitors, J.Crew, which retreated from bridalwear in 2016 amid flagging sales.

A spokesperson for Gap told Retail Dive in an email in April: "While the business is performing well, we determined that Weddington Way would take time to scale in an impactful way for Gap Inc."

Gap Inc., which operates its namesake brand, Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Athleta, has been doubling down on its more successful areas of business, specifically Old Navy and Athleta.

In September 2017, the company outlined its long-term growth strategy for its brands. It said that it is expecting Old Navy and Athleta to exceed $10 billion and $1 billion in net sales, respectively, in the next few years, and it will be looking to grow these areas of the business.

The departure of Weddington Way has left many fans wondering where to shop for affordable bridesmaid dresses now. We put together a list of brands offering dresses that cost between $68 and $328. Forever 21 was the cheapest brand overall:

  • While President Donald Trump went home to widespread criticism after their Monday meeting, the Russian president came home to universal praise in Moscow.
  • However, Russian commentators aren't saying Putin vanquished Trump.
  • Instead they're sympathizing with Trump, portraying him as a victim of irrational domestic critics and pinning hopes on him for improving relations.

MOSCOW (AP) — For Vladimir Putin, holding a summit with Donald Trump was a victory in itself.

While the U.S. leader went home to widespread criticism after their Monday meeting, the Russian president came home to universal praise in Moscow — even though there were no major breakthroughs.

16. Bill Gates and a group of investors are backing a $30 million 'venture philanthropy' fund to tackle Alzheimer's20:00[−]

Bill GatesREUTERS/Rick Wilking

  • Bill Gates is taking on Alzheimer's disease.
  • Along with a group of philanthropists, Gates is sinking $30 million into the Diagnostics Accelerator, a "venture philanthropy" fund to develop early diagnostic procedures and bring them to market quickly.
  • "We need a better way of diagnosing Alzheimer's — like a simple blood test or eye exam — before we're able to slow the progression of the disease," Gates wrote on his blog.

Beyond solving the biggest problems with renewable energy, reinventing the toilet, and eradicating malaria, the itinerant philanthropist and former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates has a new mission: helping Alzheimer's patients get diagnosed earlier.

Last November, Gates made an initial $50 million investment into Alzheimer's research. Now, Gates is teaming up with a group of philanthropists including Leonard Lauder and the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation to sink another $30 million into a bold new idea for diagnosing Alzheimer's earlier — which is one of the keys to developing drugs to treat the disease.

"Salmon" burgers without any fish may be the next frontier for the future of meat alternatives.

Instead of smashing together beans and tofu or trying to coax animal cells to form edible tissues, Kimberlie Le, the founder of a startup called Terramino Foods, is taking an approach that draws inspiration from soy and sake.

Amazon’s Prime Day is one of the best times of the year to stock up on essentials like home goods or tech for a whole lot less. And while there may be a couple big things you save hundreds on — like couches or mattresses — there also may be many things you save small amounts on that add up over time (like when our editor bough six months' worth of toilet paper on Prime Day last year).

As a $13 memory card breaking the top 10 best-sellers of 2017 will forever remind us, the average person needs the basics even more than they need a new Kindle. And the basics make particularly good sense on sale, where little money can translate to big convenience and $5 off can translate to 50% off typical pricing.

Below are the best Prime Day 2018 deals that won’t cost you more than $25. If you run through the list and realize you need something, now is probably a great time to pick it up. And if you’ve been meaning to get yourself an extra long charging cable for about a year now, just trust me when I say you won't regret spending the $15 today.

Here are the best cheap deals of Prime Day 2018:

20. Here are 12 of the most popular titles MoviePass subscribers are going to this summer — and some of them will surprise you (HMNY)19:48[−]

Though MoviePass is losing millions every month and its parent company’s stock continues to plunge, it can’t be denied that the service is popular.

The 2018 box office is on an incredible run, as it’s up over 8% from this time last year, and it’s hard to ignore that MoviePass may have helped in that spike.

Yes, the movies this year, especially the summer releases, are performing beyond expectation. But could the bump in box office numbers also be due to the over 3 million MoviePass subscribers hitting the multiplexes on a daily basis?

MoviePass’ CEO Mitch Lowe thinks so.

“We bought over 5% of all tickets in the first half of the year, and 70% of the time our subscribers were bringing people who don’t have MoviePass,” Lowe told Business Insider, citing company data. “We think we’ve played at least some role in energizing moviegoing.”

And it looks like over the summer MoviePass is dishing out some major coin for all the movies its subscribers are going to see.

Here’s a breakdown of the top 12 titles MoviePass has bought the most tickets for this summer:

(Note: Data below provided by MoviePass, the range is from April 27 - July 13.)

12. "Sicario: Day Of The Soldado" - Over 300,000 tickets

Sony

11. "Book Club" - Over 300,000 tickets

Paramount Pictures

10. "Life of the Party" - Over 300,000 tickets

New Line Cinema
