The most dangerous kinds of identity theft

first_imgby: Patricia OliverLike the thieves behind the crime, identity theft can take on many disguises depending on the information stolen. When identity theft goes undetected, these crimes can not only cost victims their money, but also their health and well-being.It’s nearly impossible to avoid identity theft, but awareness and vigilance are key to fixing the problem if you do get hit.As each kind of identity theft could be more deadly than the next, here are three particularly dangerous types of identity theft.Child ID theftWhat makes it dangerous: Thieves often go after children’s identities through stealing data from schools or even taking their relatives’ information. Children will likely not know they were victims until they grow older and are denied for their first loan, credit card or even housing because of a poor credit history. This blemished credit report could cause them to be denied new lines of credit, which could stunt their financial wealth. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Coaches relieved to have a start date after change for high-risk sports

first_imgIt is up to individual sections to determine if athletes can participate in two sports at once. While it may be a difficult balance, Ford said it’s a challenge he thinks athletes would be more than happy to take on. “I am hopeful we can at least do some time of open gym,” said Quinlan. “More opportunities for the kids to enjoy the sports they’ve played their whole lives would be great, no matter how we have to rework the schedules,” he said. “A lot of small schools you have multi-sport athletes and each sport really depends on each kid to come out and participate and play and give you the numbers you need,” said Quinlan. “This hopefully gives us the opportunity if they allow us to have strength and conditioning program starting the twenty-first or at least over the winter to progress to that, but the kids will be in a much better physical conditioning coming into that kind of season,” said Ford. NYSPHSAA Executive Director Dr. Robert Zayas said that was a big reason they made the decision Wednesday night. Zayas said athletes who play high-risk sports now have a higher chance to have a quality season. “If we can afford those student-athletes to play just a few games in the spring, I think we’ve accomplished our goal,” he said. With the season six months away, Ford and Quinlan are still waiting to see when they’ll be able to begin team practices. “Student-athletes were going to start practicing in those high-risk sports without truly understanding when they were going to be able to participate in games,” said Zayas. center_img The school year will have four sports seasons. With fall season II and the spring season facing at least a two week overlap, coaches are concerned athletes will be forced to choose between two sports. “I think they would practice anyway but competition is what sports are all about,” she said. “The first reaction I had was, you know happy we had some sort of guidance,” said Susquehanna Valley football coach Mike Ford. Governor Andrew Cuomo’s original guidance limited high-risk sports (football, volleyball and competitive cheerleading) to practice beginning September 21. (WBNG) — When the New York State Public High School Athletic Association announced high-risk sports would be moved to spring, coaches were relieved to finally see a start date in place. Quinlan agreed, and said her team wants to compete in matches. “Maybe it’s a sort of silver lining in a cloud,” said Candor volleyball coach Pam Quinlan. Dr. Zayas said high-risk sports are allowed to begin practicing September 21, as long as they follow the Department of Health’s guidelines.last_img read more

One-parent youths ‘face struggle’

first_imgSydney Morning Herald 11 July 2013Children growing up in single-parent families are among the groups most  likely to face ongoing and entrenched disadvantage, a new report warns.Almost 9 per cent of children aged under 10  who had lived with a single  parent experienced poverty for between six and 10 years, the Productivity  Commission report, to be released on Thursday, says.Only 2 per cent of children who had lived in two-parent households over a  decade experienced sustained poverty. ”A child’s earliest years fundamentally  shape their life chances,” the report’s authors write.”Gaps in capabilities between children from socio-economically disadvantaged  families and their more advantaged peers appear early in life. Starting school  behind the eight-ball can begin a cycle of disadvantage that sets a trajectory  for poorer outcomes later in life.”The report looked at the experiences of people facing poverty between 2001  and 2010.Although some who experience disadvantage move out of it relatively quickly,  the report found, others struggle for years.Those people are most likely to be single parents and their children,  indigenous Australians, and people with low educational qualifications and  persistent health conditions or disabilities. read more

Chch families forced to move by residential street prostitution

first_imgResidents and advocates clash over ways to prevent prostitutes working in suburbiaStuff 2 June 2017Family First Comment: We predicted this would be an ongoing problem, and Parliament had the opportunity to fix this issue in 2015 but only NZ First voted for the residents.And here’s the revealing truth – even with decriminalisation, the sex industry doesn’t want to play by the rules“NZPC national co-ordinator Catherine Healey says regulating street-based sex workers will only serve to further stigmatise them.”Wooden villas and picket fences line the perimeter of what appears to be an innocuous crossroads in suburban Christchurch.On closer inspection hints of a more seedy pastime can be seen on the St Albans corner.Used condoms are discarded in the leaf-filled gutters, a packet of un-used condoms are hidden behind a utility box. Grass berms have bald patches where sex workers pace as they ply their trade – mostly in the darkness, but sometimes during the day too.For six years the corner of Purchas and Manchester Sts, a block north of Bealey Ave, has been used by sex workers, who were forced out of the central city immediately after 2011 earthquakes. Some sex workers have returned to the city, but some have remained and continue to disrupt the lives of nearby residents.Residents talk vividly about their encounters with the sex workers, their pimps and clients. They tell of instances where they have been assaulted, verbally abused, had their vehicles damaged, properties used as dumping grounds for condoms and needles, and in one case a home vacant while earthquake repairs were carried out was used for sex.People have sold homes they lovingly restored because they did not feel safe anymore.Giles Goulden and his wife Suzanne Walker moved from their Manchester St villa, north of Bealey Ave, in 2013 because of the sex workers.“We were regularly verbally abused, physically jostled and on one occasion I was assaulted,” Walker says.Russell Craigie, who lives on one corner of the St Albans intersection, says his property has been used as a toilet. He stood on faeces left by his garage.“There’s yelling and shouting and cars coming and going. It just disturbs your sleep.”Matt Bonis, a spokesman for the residents, says his neighbours eventually left because their daughter kept being propositioned when she arrived home late from work.He and his wife have considered selling up and moving on many times, but they have a financial and emotional bond to their home. They were there first and do not see why they should have to move.They have both been threatened by the sex workers, but Bonis says police rarely respond to residents’ calls anymore because they are too busy dealing with other issues.Bonis has two children who are often woken at night by commotion outside whether it be sex workers negotiating prices or having an argument.“We don’t want to be hostages on our own properties,” he says.Bonis and his neighbours have been pleading with the Christchurch City Council for at least three years to come up with a permanent solution to prevent prostitutes from working in residential areas.Fed up with a lack of action, Bonis engaged lawyer Duncan Webb to help him gain traction with the council.Webb, who is standing for Labour in the Christchurch Central electorate at September’s election, argues the council should enforce its public places bylaw, which aims to protect the public from nuisance and regulates trade in public places.The council’s legal team has a different opinion.They say the council can not use the bylaw to prevent prostitutes from working in residential areas. They say it is a difficult commercial activity for the council to investigate and enforce. The council would have to prove a commercial activity was occurring in a public place. With street-based sex work, the commercial transaction/activity being undertaken for payment often did not happen in a public place. It happened on empty private property and in cars.However, Webb says it would not be permissible for a coffee cart to operate at all hours at this location and neither would a busker be tolerated.The issue came to a head at a council meeting last week when residents appealed to the council to use the bylaw to resolve the issue. The New Zealand Prostitutes Collective (NZPC) and the Salvation Army made equally impassioned pleas for the council not to use regulation to ban sex workers from certain areas.NZPC national co-ordinator Catherine Healey says regulating street-based sex workers will only serve to further stigmatise them.READ MORE: read more
