“From this nation’s early days its voices of freedom spoke loudly and were heard. This is one reason we are a true democracy, and not a totalitarian regime. At a time when the voices of freedom in Spanish-language programming are threatened, it is our duty to step up and serve the South Florida audience. For over four decades Salem Media Group has provided a platform for conservative voices on-air, and now online, and in print.

Indigenous programing in Yellowstone National Park reminds public of colonial history

Yellowstone Revealed was planned for and by Indigenous people. The week will include guided tours of Indigenously significant areas in the park as well as art and live musical performances. Yellowstone National Park is helping host the event for its 150 anniversary.

Franchesca Pine-Rodriguez is with Mountain Time Arts in Bozeman, Montana. She said while the 150 anniversary is a celebration, the Indigenous nations of the land have another relationship with the park’s birthday.

“It’s a reminder of being removed from an area that we traditionally inhabited. So, that is something that we are not celebrating. But when we think about everything that our people have been through, and it’s just a miracle that we are still here,” she said.

Pine-Rodriguez hopes to continue the relationship with the park in furthering the discussion on Indigenous input in management and conservation.

Pine-Rodriguez said there’s a lot more to Yellowstone than commonly

Do More to Protect Your Application Programing Interfaces

1. Use Strong Encryption to Back Up HTTPS

Most API traffic travels over the open internet using HTTP, the same protocol that supports web traffic. These days, no security-minded organization would run a website handling sensitive information without implementing HTTPS, the encrypted version of the protocol. The same should be true for APIs.

However, it’s not enough to simply verify that API URLs begin with HTTPS. Organizations should double-check to make sure that the API endpoint supports only the secure transport layer security versions 1.2 and 1.3.

Endpoints should explicitly block older versions of TLS as well as the insecure SSL protocol to prevent attackers from eavesdropping on sensitive API communications.

2. Require Authentication Even for Known Users

Almost all APIs should require authentication before granting users access to information or allowing them to perform transactions. While some APIs may be intended for open, public access, the vast majority should
