The Difference Between HTTP and HTTPS


The main difference between http:// and https:// is  all about keeping you secure. HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. 
The S stands for "Secure"..  

The main differences between HTTP and HTTPS as below:

          HTTP                                                               HTTPS
-URL begins with “http://”                          -URL begins with “https://”
-It uses port 80 for communication              -It uses port 443 for communication
-Unsecured                                                -Secured
-Operates at Application Layer                     -Operates at Transport Layer
-No encryption                                           -Encryption is present
-No certificates required                              -Certificates required


If you visit a website or web page, and look at the address in the web browser, it is likely begin with the following: http://.

This  means that the website is talking to your  browser using the regular unsecured language.  In other words, it is possible for someone to  "eavesdrop" on your computer's conversation with  the Website. If you fill out a form on the  website, someone might see the information you send to that site.

This is why you never ever enter your credit card  number in an http website... 
but if the web address begins with https://, that means your computer is talking to the website in a Secure code that no one can eavesdrop on. You understand why this is so important, right?

If  a website ever asks you to enter your Credit/Debit card Information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://.

If  it doesn't,  You should NEVER enter sensitive information....such as a credit/debit card  number.

A lead gown(even with the latest improved material) tends to crack when being folded, cross folding would even be worse.
When not in use, gowns should be hung carefully on designated hangers or wrapped over a reinforced towel bar. Lead gowns should be tested for defects at least every 12 months. The tests can be carried out with a fluoroscopy unit or using conventional film/screen or digital radiography.

Aidilfitri Celebration At Jabatan Radiologi HUSM 2015

We are already half way through the month of Syawal, but the excitement of aidilfitri can still be felt up until today. On last 13th of Syawal 1436H which fell on July 30th 2015, the Radiology Department (HUSM) had the opportunity to organize an aidilfitri celebration which took place extravagantly.

                               

The 3-hour celebration was organized by Kelab Kebajikan Mesra Ibadah (KKMI), Jabatan Radiologi. It was a closed event and there were approximately 100 guests ranging from the staff of different positions as well as the industrial trainees. The main objective of the celebration was to strengthen the bond between the staff and also the trainees.
There were a great variety of foods served on that day and they were all appetizing and scrumptious. The most popular meal on that day was grilled lamb which was given by Dr Tarmizi. Some of the other menus served were cakes, biscuits, laksa, noodles, nasi dagang, and different varieties of desserts.











But fate ordains that dearest friends must part’. The atmosphere of the event turned somber when S/N Nor Aeni was called upon to give her farewell speech. She will be transferred to Nuclear Department on August 2015, she was invited to this event so that we could bid a proper farewell to her. 
We, from the Radiology Department would like to express our greatest appreciation for her service in our department for 15 years starting from 2000. Her service and contribution will never be forgotten.






By 4PM, the event ended. Many thanks to those who had put a lot of hard work into making this happened and not to forget to everybody who came and made the event a memorable one. We really hope that the event was blessed by Allah S.W.T. and hopefully we would be rewarded with a long life and good health so that it would be possible for us to organize it again next Syawal.
