The news of children being defiled and molested sexually is sickening and scary. It has become a common phenomenon that is worrying. But instead of burying our heads into the sand, it is the time that parents take the opportunity to protect their children against such cases by educating them on sexuality. Most of such cases can be prevented only if the children are armed with the right information. Let’s have a look at the things that a parent can do to keep their children safe.
It is time for “The Talk”
Most of the parents are afraid of sitting down with their kids to talk about sexuality. However, with the increased cases of child defilement, it is the time that parents should learn to talk to their children. Educating your child the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching can go a long way in protecting them from sex predators.
Such education should commence as early as possible. Jeff Herman, a renowned advocate for the rights of children notes that a parent should start educating their children as early as three years old. Children should learn about the parts of their body and whether it is okay or not okay to touch them.
Besides learning their body parts, children should be taught to say ‘No’ whenever they are touched inappropriately or when someone makes them feel uncomfortable. Jeff Herman says that most of the offenders target children since they aren’t taught to say ‘no’ to adults.
As a parent, it is your responsibility to teach your child that anyone can hurt them. It is important to let them know that even the clergy, close family friends, coached, teachers and even family members can harm them. A child should learn that none of these people should make them feel uncomfortable or even touch them inappropriately.
About Jeff Herman
Jeff Herman is a renowned lawyer who changed his career to help the voiceless and the helpless in the society who have suffered in the hands of offenders. Jeff uses his skills as a lawyer to fight for children and the vulnerable in the society against sexual offenders. He rose to fame when he exposed a clergy from the Archdiocese of Miami who had sexually offended a minor. He represented his client and the court awarded them $100 million.
Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a once in a lifetime book to read. The author, is well known actor, Sean Penn. Now, the actor can add cult classic author to his resume. He has written a book that contains poems, opinions and fiction. The vocabulary used in this well written book will certainly have you reaching for your dictionaries. Sean Penn made sure that his opinion of our current state of politics was well represented in Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.
The main character of the book, Bob Honey shows lots of common interests as the author. One part of the book tells of Bob Honey going to help hurricane victims. Sean Penn did this in reality. He helped organize boats to rescue victims trapped in the flooding from Hurricane Katrina.
Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff even toes around with #metoo movement. Sean Penn is supporter of female empowerment, but made sure his opinion of every random person being the judge and jury to the offenders mentioned in #metoo movement, is well voiced.
Bob Honey touches on bullying, even calling the leader of the country (in the book, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff) a bully! Granted, Bob Honey is a fictional character but the topics he rants about is very much non-fictional, Russia, NRA, mental health crisis and violence, just to name a few. There seems to be no topic that was off left off the table.
Sean Penn has been known to have difficulty “playing with others” so it is no surprise that he has written his own book all about things that are on his mind. The term written is used quite literally, he use to use an “old school” typewriter but the ribbons quickly became hard to find. Once his ribbons were emptied, he started writing in long hand. Granted he was lucky enough to have an assistant who could take dictation, so he did not have to write this entire book long hand.
Technology is now being used in almost every aspect of life. In almost every task that human beings are doing, there is an input of technology. One area that has not been left behind in this development is the political organization. Today, technology is playing a huge contribution to political campaigns than ever before. Various technology-based strategies are being used to reach out to the voters in the grassroots level. To win a political seat must come up with a strategy that will distinguish between them and other parties. One way of having an edge over the rest is by employing the best technologies.
Technology has provided to be the difference between a party winning and failing. For the Democrats, technology plays a significant role in campaigns. In 2008 and 2012, the Democrats candidate Barack Obama won the presidential race after employing a technology-based campaign. Since then, technology has been applied in all elections the party engages in. Even for intra-party election, they still use the services of technology firms to reach out to the voters. Democrats have hired the services of NGP VAN, Washington-based technology firm to boost its campaigns. NGP VAN provides the latest technologies to ensure that the candidates they support gets the best online solutions. After the success of the 2008 elections, the company continued offering services to the Democrats. In 2012, they did it again and ensured that the president was elected once more.
Technology is ever changing. At no point do we have technology as a constant. Even in political applications, you can keep reusing the same methods over and over. You must change a few things which will ensure consistent advantages over competitors. Digital platforms such as Twitter had just been established in 2008 and therefore did not play significant role in the campaign but in 2012, it had massive following. President Obama was a twitter user while he was the president.
The growth of the social media had a huge role to play in the election and reelection of Barack Obama. In 2012, a huge number of people were using smartphones for internet surfing. NGP VAN created a mobile app known as Pollwatcher which was a platform for the supporter of the candidate to canvass and push the party’s agenda. Democratic Party has been investing huge amounts of money into various technology programs in an attempt to digitize the platform and make it voter friendly.

If we could take innovation and put it in a bottle, it would sell very well. How can innovation be bottled for consumption? All we have to do is look at ISO Industries past, and we can see how the change was the seasoning that made it’s works for over a century stand out and gain the attention of the world. No one can argue with success, and ISO Solutions doesn’t have to brag about innovation. ISO Industries started in a humble part of Chicago called Oak Park in 1909 when Otto Kolschowsky, an immigrant German moved to town after landing on the shores of this country.
He was hungry for work, so he began his small meat packing shop to serve his neighbors and family. Otto’s innovation was practical, and he asked what he could do with his practical knowledge. Otto knew it would be easy to start a meat packing service since it was a work he could accomplish.
Since 1909 OSI Industries has been part of the kind of innovation that makes others life better. In 1955 it entered into the franchising world with Ray Kroc and McDonald’s. In 1960 OSI Industries introduced flash-freezing into their production lines across all their centers and were able to transport their products healthier and better-prepared shipping and consumption.
Between 1970-1990 OSI Industries began expanding their original service to other sectors of food business and went global by building centers in other parts of the world.
OSI Industries today continues to innovate and share that innovation with other companies in the food industry. Recently OSI Industries expanded into Japan, Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom, bringing the passion for innovation and helping other companies reach goals of success.
The latest innovations for OSI have come with integrating into its operational machinery ways of reducing its carbon footprint and by saving the natural resources in the environments in which it operates. There is no doubt that Otto Kolschowsky who began with innovation decided to share it with others like McDonald’s,Starbucks,Yum, Papa John’s, Burger King, and Subway and that is the American Dream.
Intellectual property has been the cornerstone of many businesses and small-scale creations. They include patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. Patents are licenses that are given by government authority discussing a right/title to a stipulated period. The primary purpose of a patents is to prevent other stakeholders from recreating, using, or selling an invention of any kind to any industrial sector. Copyrights, on the other hand, are rights that protect artists from harassment by the public due to the use and sale of their original creations. Trademarks are logos or emblems that represent products or services from a different source from supplementary business competitors. Finally, trade secrets are what we know as treasured business information that is not available to the public, business associates and competitors. It is done to prevent any leakage that may bring down the firm. Professor Kamil Idris is an expert in intellectual property law.
National governments and surety companies mandate Intellectual property laws. According to the professor, such laws came in handy especially during the breakthrough of his show,” My Pillows” into commercial television broadcasts. Intellectual property rights enabled the professor to air his show without any copyright from other competitors. National governments and large surety companies mainly protect intellectual property rights to gain economically and encouraging creativity and innovation of small businesses and entrepreneurs, giving them the urge to continue creating new products and services. The professor’s example fits well in this puzzle, he presented his show as a service, and the national government issued him with copyrights causing him to sell his idea on the broadcast platform. The on-going trade war between America and China started because of intellectual property rights.
The Unified Patent Court, under European Union, handles business patents in European countries. Business associates get to register their innovations and creations before their rivals get to clinch their information. The European Patent Office, in turn, handles any obstacle that may arise during the issuance of the patents. The Unified Patent Court carries the jurisdiction of judging cases that involve countries that are outside the European Union and are stealing patents from other countries, like the case of China and America and their trade war. China is the country that is being sued by America. The organisation that Professor Kalim Idris represents is the World Intellectual Property Organization, (WIPO). The United Nations covering the whole globe runs it. Creating awareness and protecting an individual’s intellectual property to maximum heights.
Professor Kamil Idris is an arbitrator at the Permanent Court of Arbitration, a court that is special in its way. The sessions are private, and the involved parties get to choose the arbitrators. The professor is among the best choice by most industries and companies to represent them as an arbitrator. The life and work of professor Kamil Idris revolve around protecting intellectual property.

William Saito is additionally involved in the cybersecurity industry. Recent breaches have led to a focus on who is actually responsible for vulnerabilities in security. The victim of a cyber attack should never be blamed. This will only encourage them to try to resolve the issue or cover it up. Awareness of a cyberattacks initial stages leads to communication and vigilance. This will help improve security. Automatic systems for protection must be put in place by corporations. If a system is penetrated it is crucial to reveal this fact as quickly as possible.
They are certain preparations necessary for any company to effectively handle cyberattacks. A CISO must provide regular updates. This person should report to a risk committee on a regular basis. An incident response plan should be implemented and updated to ensure it is ready for any possibility. Education and training programs for cybersecurity are a must. Cybersecurity simulations should be carried out by the security team. Public relations, legal and forensics experts should be retained by the company to provide their expertise regarding breeches. Cyber insurance is a good idea because it will cover the costs for credit monitoring, legal services, forensic analysis, litigation and public relations if necessary.
