Albeit when it comes to our personal data, we prefer ignoring how many people not only can see it but also use it for personal gain. Why does this happen? Maybe because its value is diminishing as it's intangible. However, we all know the importance of privacy issues regarding networks, but we do not have a lot of options on how to protect them.

As of October 2019, Quang Tri is home to 68 wind power projects with total capacity of more than 3,600 MW.-VNA/VNS Photo Nguyen Ly Such a transition would require early investments in new coal power plants that would reverse the current trend of increasing coal consumption, said Jakob Stenby Lundsager, a long-term advisor of the Danish Energy Partnership Programme, at a press meeting on Tuesday. He also emphasised energy efficiency to be a priority as results show it was much more cost-efficient to invest in this than in more power plant capacity and that energy efficiency can help reduce carbon dioxide and fuel imports.
