A Rutgers alumnus is working with his team to better the lives of people abroad.Paul Rando graduated Rutgers in 2015 and has since joined Kyle Wiese and Brandon McGee, the founders of the nonprofit Trade-ing Up, to create a vocational school in Yeji, Ghana for students there to learn valuable trades affordably.Rando, McGee and Wiese met through disaster relief volunteering with All Hands Volunteers in Louisiana. McGee originally hatched the idea when he was working on starting a goat farm in Zambia and saw a need for increased vocational education.The first year of instruction for Trade-ing Up will begin in February of 2018 and will aim to provide holistic empowerment from the bottom up through vocational education and provide the certifications required to become an active member of the local workforce and economy, according to a press release.As fundraising manager for Trade-ing Up, Rando’s job is to spread the word about the organization and encourage people to donate in support of their Sponsor-a-Student program, which can put a Ghanaian student through their trade school for only about $368.These trade schools are particularly important because things like dressmaking and carpentry are of particularly high value in Ghana, Rando said.“Based on our calculations and (Brandon McGee and Kyle Wiese’s) experience in Ghana, we have figured out that it is $368 for a student there to complete their entire education, which was pretty mind-blowing because it is exuberantly more than that here in the States,” he said.

Two researchers at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium recently announced a major exploit in the security protocol used by most Wi-Fi connected devices around the world.Called Key Reinstallation Attack, or KRACK, the vulnerability affects any Wi-Fi device which uses the WPA2, or Wi-Fi Protected Access II, security protocol, which is implemented on virtually every device on the planet.While this sounds scary, manufacturers are already developing or have developed patches, and the vulnerability’s design makes it difficult for attackers to access a user’s information.In an email, the Rutgers’ Office of Information Technology said, “Attackers can use this so-called KRACK vulnerability to access information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted, including credit card numbers, passwords, photos and protected health information.
Rutgers Gardens hosted their annual Fall Festival last Sunday, which brought together a slew of fun fall activities curated for Rutgers students and members of the community.Rutgers Gardens is a self-sustaining operation and relies on outside support for maintaining the gardens, purchasing equipment and materials, supporting salaries and providing public programs.Funds are raised through facility rental fees, special events, membership dues and donations from supporters, and Rutgers Gardens is one of the few botanical gardens in the country that does not charge a visitor’s fee and is open 365 days a year.Bruce Crawford, the director of Rutgers Gardens, said in a message on the website that every gardener knows that gardens are always changing.“I have found it interesting that Rutgers Gardens, neither by design nor mission, has always been a combination of the two.
Wi-fi enabled devices affected by KRACK have their WPA2 protocol bypassed, a feature installed on virtually all devices. These security measures protect user information and risks of information theft within range of the home network.
