The first step after receiving bad news that customers must be alerted to, is to gather all of the facts about what the bad news is. A company with bad news to give must anticipate every question it will receive from the media and all stakeholders: e.g., customers, employees, investors, suppliers, banks, or if the company is a listed public company, shareholders. Thus, the company must gather all the facts, including the bad ones, and formulate accurate responses to the questions about what happened, why, and especially, what the company intends to do to solve the problem.
None of this is to say that legal risk should not be accounted for, there are of course exceptions to this rule. Should the penalty for telling the whole truth be as severe as a jail sentence for an employee, a different consideration must be made. That said, if the risk is that severe, the company will have to look for the support of criminal lawyers.
There is natural tension between lawyers and the legal risks they work to defend clients from and crisis managers and the reputational risks they work to defend clients against. Frequently, when pushing for a conservative crisis management strategy, lawyers follow the natural human instinct to be selective about what bad news gets revealed. This defensive judgment, however, can lead to severe consequences should it result in a company being accused of hiding information. As a result of this, in times of crisis, companies are best served by comprehensively debating the legal risks, and afterward, revealing all of the facts of the matter.
At the end of the day, when a company is handling a crisis, honesty is the best policy. Honesty, however, goes beyond just issuing a statement acknowledging the existence of a crisis and then moving forward. It means that the company has a responsibility to tell its own story, including all relevant facts, and that it has to do it quickly.
As a set of rules, telling the bad news early, telling it all, and telling it yourself is not intuitive. Further, it is not difficult to understand why one might think that breaking these rules might serve them better in the long run. The fact of the matter, though, is that it seldom does. Trying to skirt these rules, while natural and human, results in a company losing control of its narrative, or having the crisis spiral out of control. The only way for a company to be sure it knows how bad news will be reported is if it directly confronts the crisis before anyone else can and without leaving any details off the table.
That weird dip at CR 18 is because the demilich is the only CR 18 monster. And in fact, there are so few data points above level 10 that any analysis above level 10 should be taken with a grain of salt. Even ignoring the demilich and the dearth of high level data, you can see that the Monster Manual Hit Points skew way low.
As you can see, below level 11, there is no significant difference in HP between those monsters with high and low HP. Above level 11, things are swingy as usual because of fewer data points, but there is no obvious through line that suggests that there is any relationship between AC and HP.
As usual, below level 11 where we have the most data, there is no damage difference between monsters with and without special attack modes. At high levels, there are variations, but there is no clear winner.
This is starting to make sense. I think the DMG values are an early draft of the monster formulae. I bet that at some point, the developers decided that they needed to raise the accuracy and lower the damage of monsters, aiming for the same total damage. The DMG chart never got updated.
Not only does attack not balance anything out, there may be a reverse correlation: hi-accuracy monsters also tend to be slightly higher-damage and higher-hit point than normal. In other words, within a given CR, some monsters are better all-round than others.
In the meantime, here is a copy of the monster-stat TSV file I used to generate these tables. Please feel free to validate the monster stats, validate or invalidate my calculations, correct my assumptions, prove me wrong, or whatever else you want to do with this stuff.
If you look at the page before the Creating a Monster Stat Block, the 2 step guideline is there. Pick a CR, adjust, flavor, and voi là. Now with the difference of power between the DMG and the MM, I think the actual question is that the MM is more player friendly, which is an overall approach of the system, and it was the first monster book, it is expected that they would proceed with caution, tuning in the long range, as we have seen in the other books. One last point I consider, is that it seemed to me you got the average HP, if you had worked with the min and max HP of the creatures, results would be different.I did not read the other articles your wrote on this topic. Maybe you have found out new stuff about the mechanics of monster creation.
I want to make it known that the average HP may not be what they use to calculate the expected HP of the monster. They may assume max HP for the monster in the formula. Damage does assume average dice rolls but there is no talk of average in the HP section.
We are using a Web connection on an Enterprise DMG with basic authentication to retrieve data from an on-prem JIRA instance over a REST API. This datasource is made available to many different self-service users.
If we select 'basic authentication' for the datasource authentication mode, then access to the datasource is alwas made with the same credentials, regardless of the user requesting the refresh, which is not what we need.
For those intersted in this topic, the workaround consists in creating the data source with anonymous authentication. Then each user can provide the credentials for basic authentication in the PowerQuery code, as in the snippet below. The drawback is that the credentials are exposed in the code = bad !
Today most Mac applications are built and distributed as PKG or DMG files. DMG files are popular because they include Checksum, which confirms that the downloaded file is 100% intact (not tampered with) plus they can be compressed, reducing installer size.
Keywords are what you center your content around. Selecting a keyword gives you a focus for a particular page. It tells any human that visits exactly what the content is about. It gives Google bots a focus for ranking.
That may seem obvious with a search term like golf. And even with that term, you can think of many different directions to branch out with. Golf clubs, golf courses, golf vacations, golf tournaments, to name but a few.
In other words, err on the side of being stingy with your use of keywords rather than trying to stuff them in every place you can. Google is only going to get more cautious with how they rank pages online as they modify their algorithms over time. And with every Google change comes a whole host of sites and pages that lose ranking because they pushed too hard to please Google and not their readers.
There are a lot of different components that go into a successful SEO strategy. If your goal is to be in business for the foreseeable future, focus on making your prospects and customers happy, not Google.
My question is this: If I download a malicious .dmg file, but don't click on it to install it, am I safe? Or is there a possibility that by simply visiting a website that auto-installs a .dmg file, I could have compromised my security?
You are safe. The .dmg (disk image) file is not the actual installer. The .dmg must be double-clicked to install it before it can run any code. Even if you double-click it (so long as you leave the security feature Gatekeeper on), you must approve both the downloaded from the web alert and the authentication prompt to actually permit the install to proceed.
If you haven't disabled gate keeper (an internal system process that makes sure that software from unidentified developers does not open unless you type in an admin password to confirm that they are safe) you are 99.99% safe.
For future reference: A .dmg file is a disk image file. Even when you open a .dmg, it will only mount the disk. This means that it opens up a little folder on your desktop kinda like when you put a CD in your mac. You can't edit the folder, you can only eject it. To eject the mounted disk, just click the little eject button, or drag it to the trash can.
An Apple disk image allows secure password protection as well as file compression, and hence serves both security and file distribution functions; such a disk image is most commonly used to distribute software over the Internet. 2b1af7f3a8
