How to spot a cheater: If your girlfriend is doing THIS in bed she’s more likely to cheat

If your female partner is faking orgasms, it’s highly likely she is faking other aspects of your relationship too – including the part where she is faithful. Women who pretend to climax are more likely to be cheating on you. That is according to a study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, the official publication of the International Academy of Sex Research. It may not be surprising that women who are lacking sexual satisfaction are seeking it elsewhere – but the study did show that intensity and frequency of orgasms had little to do with whether women would cheat.

Online dating fraud: How to identify the most likely scammer profiles

Around 7.8 million UK adults used online dating sites in 2016, up from just 100,000 in 2000. But just as dating app users are at an all-time high, so is the number of people becoming victims of online dating fraud. A new report by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has found that last year, singles were conned out of £39 million by fraudsters they’d met on dating sites and apps. Con artists are increasingly creating fake online profiles and tricking people on dating sites into handing over often large sums of money. Read More….

Disabled Students Most Likely To Endure Bullying, Least Able To Report

Earlier this month Here & Now reported on the beating of a white 18 year old with schizophrenia. Many pointed out that his attackers were black, and attributed the incident to racism. But disabilities advocates, and others, saw something else: a very common attack on a vulnerable disabled person.

Disabilities advocates note that disabled students are twice as likely to be victims of bullying as their non-disabled peers. Among those groups is Pacer, which operates a National Bullying Prevention Center. Julie Hertzog, the center’s director, talks with Here & Now‘s Robin Young about the issue.

Black Children Are More Likely To Get Hit By School Teachers, Report Says

When Wendy Chandler received a back-to-school packet from her daughter’s Alabama elementary school in 2013, she was stunned. Included in the packet was a permission slip asking if school staff members could administer corporal punishment on her child as a form of discipline. 

Chandler said that she did not give permission and wrote a note at the bottom of the slip that said: “I can not imagine how it would ever be ok to show violence towards anyone. Hitting a child is beyond disgraceful. Anyone who could hit a child should be put in jail.”

At the time, Chandler had assumed that corporal punishment was no longer allowed in schools.

Feds: Counselor likely had sexual contact with kids

The government made the claim in a 23-page brief arguing that ex-counselor Matthew Kuppe should not be freed on bond. It is unclear if any campers told prosecutors they were sexually assaulted at the camp.

The brief for the first time provided details about how Kuppe allegedly managed to take 16 sexually explicit photos of three young boys at the camp’s locker room and bathroom. The brief also explains how the counselor allegedly managed to return as a counselor this summer despite management being made aware in summer 2014 that Kuppe was “overly touchy” with boy campers.

“In 2014, when two counselors reported that (Kuppe) acted inappropriately around boys in the camp, the management did not find the complaints credible, and failed to act on them,” Assistant U.

Cyber criminals are most likely to go after your sales staff

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

UK sales staff are the most likely to suffer a cyber attack, according to a new report from Intel Security, cited by Computer Business Review. Their frequent online contact with non-staff members makes companies’ sales teams more vulnerable to online attacks than other workers or even the company chief technology officer (CTO). Call centre and customer services teams are next in line for attack, said the report. Even so, companies are failing to provide security training to non-technical staff, claims Intel Security. More than half (51%) of UK companies do not provide their sales staff with IT security training, despite the risks. Meanwhile, one in ten UK companies are failing to provide any of their staff with mandatory online security training. This is the highest rate across Europe. At the same time, the researchers noted a rise in the number of untrained staff clicking on dangerous links and unwittingly exposing their organisation to a browser attack. The number of suspect URLs soared 87% between 2013 and 2014. Advanced stealth attacks (which disguise themselves to sneak into company networks) are also on the rise – Intel Security uncovered 387 new threats every minute. Browser attacks, along with network abuse, stealthy attacks, […]
