The growth in portable USB devices and mobile storage means there is a disturbing trend of offenders increasingly bringing illegal images or videos into the workplace. In fact, many businesses are already unwittingly storing, and allowing the movement of, illegal images and videos across their networks.
The fields of technology, digital marketing and web design are still male-heavy. Advertising, too.

Want one? Well you can have one... but not just yet." He needs to find a new and unique way of doing it.
The obvious waste of an ice-bucket dunking is in poor taste given that São Paulo is suffering a severe drought at present.
