Sunglasses Online Announces New Subscription Plan for Sunglasses in January 2009


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2008

Sunglasses Online will be offering a new subscription-based sunglasses plan starting in January 2009. The idea is the brain child of friends, Cody Maher, Teevan McManus and Tyler Raaka. The subscriptions will be offered in three different yearly plans, ranging from $ 199.00 to $ 399 per year. For this subscription, customers can order anywhere from two to three pairs of sunglasses per year (depending on the plan they choose), returning the first pair to get the second pair and so on and so forth. “It’s the Netflix for sunglasses”, co-founder Cody Maher said. “It allows customers to pick either 2 or 3 pairs of shades per year, without having the shell out the higher per pair price.” Cody explained.

Sunglasses Online has been selling sunglasses for some time, however the founders felt that they needed a new spin and a unique approach to differentiating themselves from the other competitors in the market place. Co-founder Teevan explains, “We felt that we needed some kind of unique offering for customers who might like to switch out their sunglasses two or three times a year”. It’s not to say that Sunglasses Online will not allow customers to buy sunglasses directly from the site. Co-founder, Tyler Raaka stated, “Of course, we will also be offering regular purchases as well on the site if a customer simply wants to buy the shades outright, we just want to give our customers both options to choose from”.

Though, this membership speaks for itself in terms of value and convenience, the real treat is the ease of the overall shopping experience at Sunglasses Online. They are committed to service, and bringing the best selection of sunglasses to their clients at affordable prices. They are very excited to bring the membership structure to their customers, because it will give people an opportunity to enjoy a new pair of womens or mens sunglasses a couple times a year, and to never get tired of their shades, bringing Sunglasses Online to the forefront of eyewear markets and ensuring that they will continue to evolve and compete with the always changing trends.

CA Releases Internet Security Suite Plus 2009 : New Feature-Rich Suite Includes Enhanced Malware Protection, Easy-to-Use Parental Control, Robust Customer Support and Reduced User Interruptions Backed by Internet Protection Plan with Coverage up to $10,000


ISLANDIA, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 24, 2008

In addition to the enhanced security features, the suite is now more user-friendly through its inclusion of an Intuitive Help Desk for at-your-fingertips customer support, a simple interface that lets users quickly set preferences or check program status, and a gaming/movie mode to reduce interruptions. With tailored security options for wireless connectivity, CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2009 uses WiFi HotSpot detection technology to alert users when they enter a new network outside of the established home network.

According to the 2008 CA Internet Threat Outlook Report, online attacks will be dominated by smarter malware and bots targeting Web users ranging from gamers and social network users to the elderly and unsuspecting parents.

“Families should feel safe and secure when they are online,” said Brian Grayek, vice president of product management for CA. “However, there are more online threats than ever before. While it’s important for parents to practice general PC safety practices like not placing a PC in a child’s room and monitoring social networking profiles, parental control software provides an added layer of protection and additional peace of mind. Our parental controls are designed to be ‘child-proof’ and prevent even computer-savvy children from uninstalling or disabling the products. In addition to offensive website filtering and blocking, parents can also use the software to set time limits on when children can use the PC and receive daily reports on web activity.”

Grayek continued, “Historically, high-performance users, like gamers, turn off security features because it either slows down their PCs or they get pop-ups that interfere with their experience. This is a huge risk to their PC security. We’ve focused on developing a product that runs quietly in the background for uninterrupted gaming and movie watching, while keeping the PC secure.”

Also new to CA’s Internet Security Suite Plus 2009 are the following features:

Supports the Domain Key Internet Mail (DKIM) and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) industry-standard email security protocols by scanning email and thwarting phishing attempts via Email Inspector. Continuous Upgrades automatically detect new updates and provide alerts when new features are available. Silent Protection automatically analyzes program behavior to determine whether it is safe, and allows or denies access. All CA security products are designed to use system resources efficiently and facilitate fast installation, quick scans and superior usability. They are also protected by the CA Security Advisor Team, a global team of malware experts and engineers that work round-the-clock to detect and prevent online threats.

Customers receive daily protection updates, upgrades to the latest product features and 24 X 7 online technical support at no additional charge with their subscription.

Supported operating systems include Windows

World Population Day 2009


United Nations, New York, NY (Vocus) July 10, 2009

Investing in women and girls during the global financial crisis will help set the stage for economic recovery and reduce inequality and poverty, according to Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, Executive Director of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. “There is no smarter investment in troubled times,” added Ms. Obaid in her statement for World Population Day, which falls on Saturday, 11 July.

Women and girls were the majority of the world’s poor, even before the current financial crisis, said Ms. Obaid. “Now, they are falling deeper into poverty and face increased health risks, especially if they are pregnant.” For World Population Day, she added, “I call on all leaders to make the health and rights of women a political and development priority.”

In developing countries, women’s health has critical economic importance. Women are more than half the agricultural labour force. They grow 80 per cent of staple crops in Africa, and in South-east Asia, 90 per cent of rice growers are women.

Investing in reproductive health is especially cost-effective, noted Ms. Obaid, adding, as an example, “an investment in contraceptive services can be recouped four times over–and sometimes dramatically more over the long term–by reducing the need for public spending on health, education and other social services.”

In a separate statement, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on decision-makers to “protect women’s ability to earn income, keep their daughters in school, and obtain reproductive health information and services, including voluntary family planning.

“Together,” added Mr. Ban, “let us advance the rights of women and girls, and empower them as highly productive members of society capable of contributing to economic recovery and growth. There can be no better investment on this day or any other.”

Since 1990, governments and their national partners have been marking World Population Day with a variety of activities and events focusing on the importance of population to overall development strategies. This year’s 20th anniversary of the Day coincides with the 40th anniversary of UNFPA and the 15th anniversary of the historic International Conference on Population and Development that guides UNFPA’s work.

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. UNFPA supports countries in using population data for policies and programmes to reduce poverty and to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV/AIDS, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect.

Mommy, Who Stole My Identity? Follow 5 Tips to Avoid Childhood Identity Theft during National Protect Your Identity Week (October 17-24, 2009)


New York, NY (Vocus) October 21, 2009 –

It is a debilitating crime. Identity theft violates its victims, strips them of their ability to purchase homes and cars, and leaves them swimming in a never-ending sea of paperwork. When five percent of identity theft happens to minors under the age of 18, according to the Federal Trade Commission, thieves are beginning to realize that children are an easy, and profitable, target.

Young people dont even realize their identity has been stolen until they apply for their drivers permit, apply for a college loan, or open their first checking account, warns The Campus Safety Expert Bob Baier, author of Identity Theft – Prevention for the College Student. The crime can go undetected for up to 15 years! By the time parents realize their children have been violated, the thieves are long gone.

Childhood identity theft can ruin its victims’ names, preventing them from buying cars and homes, leaving them with thousands of dollars in collections, and with credit accounts and addresses where they have never lived, years after the crime has been detected. Among his 7 Most Important Things You Need to Know to Prevent Identity Theft, these are particularly important to parents of minors:

1.

Tell your child to immediately remove all P2P (peer to peer) programs for downloading free music and games from their computers (Lime Wire, Bear Share, Soul Seek etc.). Place them onto a thumb drive, disc, memory stick. Criminals anywhere in the world have total access to every single item on their computer when they are on the internet.

2.

On every social networking site, have your child remove all personal information including addresses, birthdays, telephone numbers etc. Tell them never to link to someone they do not already know. When they click on a link malware is downloaded onto their computer.

3.

Check your child’s free credit report regularly. It is estimated that there is at least one child in every classroom in the United States that has already had their identities stolen.

4.

Watch for shoulder surfing. Your children must be aware of everyone around them, anytime they are on their laptops. At school, in the park, waiting for transportation, any public place. People are looking over their shoulder and using mobile phone cameras to take pictures of personal information.

5.

Tell your child to be very careful on “chats.” Never give out personal information of any kind. Foreign computer hackers have developed what is called “Russian Robots” which are automated computer programs that can chat with 10 people at a time with the sole purpose of acquiring as much information as possible to steal their identity. Victims are unable to detect they are giving vital information to only a computer.

When it comes to keeping kids safe, Bob Baier of Warwick, New York, covers all of the bases: Dating Abuse, Date Rape and Sexual Assault, Safer Sex, Domestic Violence, Alcohol and Drug Awareness, and of course, Identity Theft. In his full time profession as a forensic document examiner, Baier was seeing more signatures being forged and more identities stolen, which prompted him to write Identity Theft – Prevention for the College Student. Also known as The Campus Safety Expert, Baier is a court qualified Forensic Handwriting Investigator who has rendered an opinion in 23 states and 2 countries, and he has testified as an expert witness in 8 states. A Guinness World Record breaking canoeist, this pilot, parachutist, and balloonist has also driven a race car at 160 miles per hour. A bit of a daredevil in his everyday life, Baier recommends prudence when it comes to protecting ones identity. He teaches forensic document examination at the International School of Forensic Document Examination and was named the 2008 Forensic Document Examiner of the year by Handwriting Services International.
