How to prevent your child from becoming a victim of identity theft

On the list of things that stress you out, it probably seems ridiculous to worry about identity theft happening to your children. They don’t have a drivers license or a credit card in their name. It’s impossible for their identity

Becoming Who I Really Am

I have this dream pretty regularly. I am running from someone who intends to do me harm but can’t get far enough away. I end up backing myself into a corner, in a dimly lit room with this beat up creaky old white door that doesn’t lock. On the other side of that door, they push and push trying to get in and I can’t hold the door closed. The intruder is powerful and strong while I am defenseless and weak. The door opens a little bit at a time and I’m screaming, using all of my force to attempt to close it but it’s just not good enough.

Real-Life Hacks To Avoid Becoming A Sweaty Mess This Summer

It’s going to be one hell of a summer this year.

According to a long-range forecast by AccuWeather, much of the country is in for more 90-degree days than average in 2016, with more stormy weather in the plains and more droughts on the West Coast. Basically, it’s going to feel like summer forever. Here’s what that will look like:

Thanks to a strong El Niño that is now winding down, we’re in for a series of heat waves throughout June, July and August.

Dr. Marie Jhin, a San Francisco/San Carlos-based dermatologist and author of “Asian Beauty Secrets,” is here with a few tricks to keep up your sleeve when the temperature jumps (if you want to keep that sleeve as free from pit stains as possible).

Are telcos becoming cyber security companies?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

An increasing number of telecoms and communications providers are taking an active role in providing cyber security services. ETIS, the IT association for telecoms which counts BT, Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom as customers, launched a new initiative to support the exchange of cyber threat intelligence between providers. The pilot project is a technical platform that will automate the exchange of information in real-time. The role of telecoms providers in providing security is becoming increasingly recognised by the providers themselves. In March, Vodafone launched the Vodafone Enterprise Security Services (VESS) line of business, which will provide businesses with cyber security technologies and support. Led by Simon Church, former chief exec at NTT Com Security, VESS will provide cloud-based protection for business-critical applications, network perimeter management, threat detection and response. BT, which has had a cyber security business for several years is planning to hire 900 more cyber-security staff this year. In September, the provider opened a cyber security centre to show that it can respond in real time to online cyber threats. Other initiatives have included an ethical hacking service for the automotive industry to help protect connected cars. There are several reasons why telecoms companies are making these investments.

Welsh Police Commissioner warns child abuse investigations risk becoming like McCarthy-era witch hunts

A police and crime commissioner has warned child abuse investigations must not become damaging witch-hunts like those for communists seen in America under Senator Joe McCarthy.

Investigations into unproven allegations have led to the names of famous people, including the late former Prime Minster Ted Heath, being made public in a bid to encourage victims to come forward.

But Christopher Salmon, police and crime commissioner for Dyfed-Powys Police, said that there was a fine line between encouraging victims of child abuse to speak out and “McCarthyism”.

Many innocent people saw their reputations ruined when they were labelled communists during the atmosphere of paranoia that existed in America in the 50s and which was fuelled by Senator McCarthy and became known as McCarthyism.

‘I was met by his fist to my nose… I don’t know why I was targeted’: The inspirational story of how a bullying victim spiralled into drink and drug addiction… but got his life back on track after becoming a father

It’s difficult to fathom that paramedic and dedicated father-of-two James Fry spent most of his youth intoxicated on a concoction of drugs and alcohol.

The 32-year-old battled this savage addiction for nearly 10 years, starting from the tender age of 13.

The route cause was his first day at a new Catholic school in Sydney, where he suffered the wrath of a school bully.

For the next three years, he lived in a constant state of fear in which he tried to seek help from his superiors but was repeatedly ignored.

Mr Fry told Daily Mail Australia ‘things started to spiral downhill from then on’ as he recalls how the trauma of being bullied haunted him for years to come.
