Computer Ergonomics: How to Protect Yourself from Strain and Pain

On this page:


Why computer ergonomics?

Many people spend hours a day in front of a computer without thinking about the impact on their bodies. They physically stress their bodies daily without realizing it by extending their wrists, slouching, sitting without foot support and straining to look at poorly placed monitors.

These practices can lead to cumulative trauma disorders or repetitive stress injuries, which create a life-long impact on health. Symptoms may include pain, muscle fatigue, loss of sensation, tingling and reduced performance.

Ergonomics is a field of study that attempts to reduce strain, fatigue, and injuries by improving product design and workspace arrangement. The goal is a comfortable, relaxed posture.


Arrange Your Workstation

Every time you work, take time to adjust workstations that aren’t quite right in order to minimize awkward and frequently performed movements.

Computer scientists discover new vulnerability affecting computers globally — ScienceDaily

In 2018, industry and academic researchers revealed a potentially devastating hardware flaw that made computers and other devices worldwide vulnerable to attack.

Researchers named the vulnerability Spectre because the flaw was built into modern computer processors that get their speed from a technique called “speculative execution,” in which the processor predicts instructions it might end up executing and preps by following the predicted path to pull the instructions from memory. A Spectre attack tricks the processor into executing instructions along the wrong path. Even though the processor recovers and correctly completes its task, hackers can access confidential data while the processor is heading the wrong way.

Since Spectre was discovered, the world’s most talented computer scientists from industry and academia have worked on software patches and hardware defenses, confident they’ve been able to protect the most vulnerable points in the speculative execution process without slowing down computing speeds too much.

Feds allege Josh Duggar had trove of child porn on computer

Ex-reality TV star Josh Duggar allegedly had at least 65 images of child porn on his computer — as well as a program that was supposed to alert his wife when he viewed X-rated material, a federal agent testified in court on Wednesday.

Some of the sick pics were “in the top five of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine” Homeland Security special agent Gerald Faulkner said during Duggar’s detention hearing in Arkansas, People reported.

Duggar, 33, is accused of downloading the files onto a computer at his now-shuttered used car dealership over three days in May 2019.

Agents raided the Springdale, Ark., business in November 2019 and seized Duggar’s computer and cellphone.

Authorities allegedly found a trove of child porn — including one file that depicted sex abuse involving children ranging from 18 months to 12 years of age, the report said.
