We, the students, are eternally thankful to Globsyn Business School for arranging a corporate session on 'Business Communication' with the Head of Marketing Communication, Outotec India, Ms. Aditi Basu. The session, titled "Touchstone - Transforming and Changing the mundane into Motivating", opened with the three basic influential factors of communication:   The content or the information present. The choice of packaging or the presentation. The way in which we decide to engage or interact to drive across the point. We were made to realize the importance of a few formal courtesies like: How to keep the Stakeholders of a company appeased which include the investors, customers, suppliers, media, vendors, employees, shareholder, government etc. The importance of response time and getting back to queries as soon as possible. How useful it is to be well versed with applications like Microsoft office, One note etc. The advantages of taking part in various events like Trade Shows, Exhibitions, Conferences etc. For us, another very important takeaway from the session was how to perfect the art of introducing oneself in the form of a story. The story should be a well fabricated one, but not a falsified one. The three primary questions to keep in mind while writing your own story are: Who are you? What do you offer? Why should I care? The introduction should be such that it answers these questions in a practical and believable manner. The most important thing to keep in mind is to sell an interesting story without faking it. Aditi Ma'am also helped us with some pointers that helped us in starting off our presentations in an attractive way, such as: Dynamic statistics Rhetoric questions Humor Info-graphic communication always works better. The last point of discussion was the difference between the Conventional approach (where the organization acts as a container, and communication acts as a flow of information from or within the container) and Constitutive or Contemporary approach (where the organization itself acts as a communication - made up of collective perceptions, aspirations, knowledge, vision, value, experiences etc.). The session was concluded with an interesting and activity based workshop where group of 8-9 students had to come up with innovative business ideas and pitch them in a pleasing and attractive way to a high profile client in a matter of just 30 seconds to 60 seconds. Overall, it was an enriching experience to have Aditi Ma'am among us. The knowledge she imparted will be with us for a lifetime and will come handy in all walks of life. We will be looking forward to more such interactive sessions in the near future. Debapriya Pramanik PGDM Batch – 08, Globsyn Business School

Students of Globsyn Business School (GBS) organized 'Titanium' – the annual sports event, which continued for four days from December 17 to 20, 2018. The inauguration of the event was done on December 17 by the Dean, Registrar and Principal of GBS, along with the other faculty members at 2.30 pm on the playground of Globsyn. Titanium this year added many new games such as PUBG, Throwball and Chess along with games like Badminton, Carom and Table Tennis. All the students participated and enjoyed along with their studies. Organizing this kind of event in the institute not only motivated the students but also filled them with good spirit. This kind of event also teaches many aspects of management like HR, Operations, Marketing and Finance and gives a practical knowledge to all the students. For example, this time we faced a lot of problem due to the bad weather for the first two days of Titanium and could not organize the outdoor games. However, by dint of contingency planning and appropriate time management and good team work, we were able to complete the whole event on time. Events like 'Titanium' also teaches us of managerial skills and the various types of conflicts that might arise, as all the games were taking place simultaneously. This could have created a lot of confusion among the students but all went smoothly because of good team work and planning with the help of Excel. This is how Serious Fun and the concept of Beyond Education in GBS are implemented and made us learn so many things of management and help us realize our true potentials.

In the recent past, a game called ‘Blue Whale’ became the major topic of discussion as well as matter of concern for all of us. In connection with the game, another term called ‘Dark Web’ was also heard for the first time by many among us, and the IT security professionals went hoarse saying that the conspirators behind this life-threatening game were using 'Dark Web' to hide their identity. But what is this ‘Dark Web’ all about? Is it the extended version of the Internet we use on a daily basis, or something else? The 'Dark Web', also termed as ‘Dark Net’, can be referred to as encrypted online resources that are not indexed on traditional search engines, a subset of deep web part which is a vast collection of web content that doesn't appear through regular net browsing. A specialised browser (e.g. Tor), is required to access the resources of the Dark Web. This part of the web contains anonymous message boards, online markets for drugs, exchanges for stolen financial and private data, and much more. Bitcoins are often used in this domain for transaction purpose and physical goods are transported in a way that both the buyer and seller’s identity are hidden from law enforcement agencies. The internet we use is comprised of servers, computers, and other device that is connected together in a network of networks throughout the world. It can be divided into two parts namely the 'Surface Web' and the 'Deep Web'. The 'Surface Web' is what the common people think of as ‘the Internet’. It is a collection of websites indexed by search engines that can be easily accessed through normal web browsers and internet protocols. This may seem like a vast quantity of information, but the 'Surface Web' is just the small portion of the whole Internet. The 'Dark Web' or 'Dark Net' is very often confused with the 'Deep Web', but there is difference. The 'Dark Web' is a specific portion of the 'Deep Web' and there are a few specific attributes that a site must meet to be considered a Dark website. The site must only be able to be accessed anonymously through a specialized browser such as Tor, and cannot be accessed through the Surface Web. The site must also require a user to input its unique Tor address. Some Dark Web sites have an additional layer of security and may also require users to input a password. In most of the cases, Deep Web is not considered part of the Dark Web is because it can be accessed through Surface Web applications. But how does Dark Web operate? It is already mentioned that specialized browser like TOR is required to access Dark Web. One of the major objectives of using TOR service is that it allows users to access '.onion' pages, which are purposefully encrypted for maximum privacy. TOR also allows web users connect to normal websites anonymously so that their ISPs cannot tell what they're browsing. Similarly, the websites will not be able
