The first major show by an artist of global renown at the UAB College of Arts and Sciences' Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts since its opening in January 2014, “Warhol: Fabricated” will be a remarkable presentation of private and public Warhol pieces that have never before been exhibited together.

JEH JEH LIVE AT THE BLOOD DRIVE - FOX6, Birmingham Barons and LifeSouth Community Blood Centers are teaming up for a special blood drive on Friday, February 13 at Regions Field. The blood drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Schaeffer Eye Center Club Lounge. Donors must be 17 or older, weigh 110 pounds or more and show ID. All donors will receive a recognition item and a cholesterol screening. LifeSouth told us in January that it is in dire need of donors.

SEARCHING FOR LOVE- 1 in 10 Americans use a dating site or app to find love but users beware: More than half of the most popular dating apps are open to security risks according to a new security study. What happens when the device that holds your deepest darkest secrets becomes the target of a cyber-attack? Valentine's Day is tomorrow and the rush to find a soul mate is causing people to flock to dating applications like shoppers to a Black Friday deal! Recent research from Pew shows that 1 in 10 Americans already use a dating site or app to search for love. IBM wanted to get to the heart of understanding what makes dating apps tick so researchers scanned 41 of the most popular dating apps and were surprised to find that a majority have security and privacy vulnerabilities ripe for hackers or jilted ex's to exploit. So what happens when your phone or other mobile device is attacked? It puts your personal information at risk. A breach can enable attackers to eavesdrop on conversations, send unauthorized notifications infected with malware or even steal credit card information from an app's built-in payment features. It's a hazardous reality that requires users to rethink the way they use dating apps, especially since many of today's leading dating apps access personal information:
• 73% of popular dating apps have access to current and past GPS location information
• 49% of popular dating apps have access to a user's billing information saved on their device
• 34% of popular dating apps have access to a user's camera
Michael Montecillo, IBM Director of Security Intelligence is a global authority on cyber security. He explained the risks and offered advice to protect your personal data.

You will then be transported to the future through the voices of Tom Jones, Ricky Martin, Mick Jagger, Alan Jackson, N'Sync, Bee Gee's, Beatles, James Brown, Willie and Julio, Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Prince, Earth, Wind and Fire, OutKast . So many, many voices, so little time. As the evening comes to a close, you will marvel at the performance you have just seen.
