5 Things Your Pediatrician Wants You to Know about Hand, Foot & Mouth

Written by Deena Blanchard MD, MPH.

“It’s going around”, is a common phrase I hear from parents. Right now, the normal seasonal increase in coxsackie virus (hand, foot, and mouth disease) is in full swing and we are seeing tons of kids with typical symptoms in the office. Even the mention of hand, foot mouth disease can send typically calm parents into full panic. I’m hoping after reading this article, that parents will realize that while this illness can certainly make your little one feel very uncomfortable, it is rarely life threatening or dangerous. Typically, with some time, love and good pain control, your little one will seem back to himself in a few days.

The ‘After School Satan Club’ Wants To Show Kids Another Path To The Moral Life

The Satanic Temple seeks to bring an After School Satan Club to elementary schools around the country.

The goal of the group ― which does not promote a belief in any higher being, Satan or otherwise ― is to counteract the influence of religion on school grounds. The Satanic Temple is specifically trying to form clubs in elementary schools that already have Good News Clubs, which are affiliated with evangelical Christianity.

An After School Satan Club would show kids that “there are people with distinctly different religious points of view that are still leading moral and productive lives,” said Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves (who also goes by the name Douglas Mesner).

What Your Teenager Who Won’t Talk to You Wants You to Know

This is the first in the “What Your … Wants You to Know” series of Conversation Catalysts created to help stimulate you having positive and long overdue conversations.

If you’re a parent and think this applies to your teenager, have them watch it and invite them to tell you more. When you do that, you’re less likely to become defensive and more likely to listen.

If you’re a teenager and trying to get through to a parent whose advice you don’t want and whose advice only makes you feel worse, give it to your mother and/or father and tell them this is what you’ve been trying to tell them.

Homeland Security Wants You to Uninstall QuickTime for Windows

trojan-horse-viruses-the-computer-equivalent-of-having-a-usc-frat-bro-as-a-roommate

On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a strange warning to Windows users: please uninstall QuickTime. Apple announced that they wouldn’t be upgrading the old QuickTime media player software for Windows users (like iTunes, QuickTime has a non-Mac version for Windows users) anymore.

Without regular updates, the program quickly became vulnerable to security exploits. As John Oliver explained last month, digital security is a constant war of attrition between software companies and malicious hackers. Discontinuing security updates for a program is a bit like pulling out your goalie, and then letting the whole team walk off the field — there’s nothing to stop the opposing team from scoring goals (in this case, program exploits).

Shortly after the announcement, the TrendMicro blog’s ZeroDay initiative discovered two vulnerabilities in the QuickTime software — while the technical details are pretty complicated, both bugs give hackers an easy way into a computer’s data, allowing “remote attackers” to “execute arbitrary code.” Basically, if someone that is not you can force your computer to run code, you have a problem. A similar “trojan horse” virus was even responsible for Anonymous hacking a NASA drone and trying to crash it into the ocean, which fortunately failed but was equal parts scary and hilarious.
The bugs do require “user input,” meaning the computer’s owner still has to download a dodgy file or visit an unsafe website — but that’s extremely common. According to Google their safe browsing software turns up as many as 90,000 new unsafe websites every week, so there’s no real way to protect yourself if your computer has a security flaw like the ones in QuickTime. On the map on the right side of this page, you can click on your country to see a “heat map” of how many of its websites Google classifies as unsafe (in the U.S., it’s less than one percent, but since there are almost 42 million registered web pages, that’s still a big-ass number).

As The Verge noted, Homeland Security’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team puts out warnings like this pretty often, but they’re rarely this explicit:

“…Using unsupported software may increase the risks from viruses and other security threats,” the statement reads. “Potential negative consequences include loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability of data, as well as damage to system resources or business assets. The only mitigation available is to uninstall QuickTime for Windows.”

So, yeah. If you’re a PC user, it’s time to say goodbye to QuickTime (click here for help uninstalling!) If you’re like me, you’d completely forgotten you even had it on your computer, so it’s not like you’ll be missing much. Mac users, your QuickTime is fine. You probably don’t use it either, but if you do, no need to uninstall.
