Lisa Beth Older, a New York City Divorce Lawyer, Offers Important Information on Divorce in New York City or Upstate New York

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 7, 2006

Life started out so great. It felt as though you were locked inside a great big bubble of happiness. You got married to the love of your life and proceeded to have three children. You are young. You were young. Your husband or wife has been taking care of all the bills. Three or four years go by and things are slowing changing. Your husband or wife is not home as much to help you with your household chores or with caravaning the children to their in sundry appointments and birthday parties. You feel isolated and alone. Suddenly you start to see things unraveling. You become unhappy, you start to feel unworthy. You worry because you have no idea what is happening to your life, a life which was once the envy of your single friends.

You wonder… is this the way things are supposed to turn out? Then the arguing begins, sometimes involving verbal abuse or even physical abuse. Sometimes, you just feel isolated and neglected. You have no one to talk to about your changing life. You have asked, but your spouse refuses to see a marital counselor or counsel from your church or synagogue. You can not turn to family, as they are still reminding you of how wonderful your spouse has been, what a wonderful provider he or she is. And then the day comes when your husband or wife tells you that they no longer love you or that they want a divorce or separation.

In New York State, the NYS divorce attorney hears a version of the above fact scenario day in and day out. The above stated fact scenario is more common than you might think. Yet each individual has their own set of circumstances, their own priorities, their own way of looking at things, and things are just not that simple.

You may turn to friends and family and everyone has a different view point on what to do. Stay? Go?

You turn to a therapist to sort out your feelings and invariably you come to terms with the fact that things are going to have to change. Change is a scary thing to confront. The ugly word starts being bantered about. Divorce. Now what.

The first thing you should do is start finding out how to protect the best interests of yourself and your children. If you or your children are being ill treated or abused there are places you can go and things that you can do immediately to stop the abuse.

Call 911. Call child protective services, there is a department in each and every county in New York State. Go to Family Court and get an Order of Protection. Call your family lawyer. Or seek immediate custody of the subject children. At all costs, protect the children from harms way.

And then start worrying about what you must do to begin preparing for divorce. Call a New York City divorce lawyer. If you are in nyc and seek a top nyc divorce lawyer then search the internet and call a few attorneys and find one you are comfortable with. If you are in a smaller town or county you can call your local Bar Association for a referral. But by all means get help. Do not stay in a situation of domestic violence. The NY Family Court has a wonderful history of providing a respite for those in fear of their lives.

And if you feel you just can not go it alone, do not be afraid to seek out professional help from a New York State lawyer. The more experienced ones will know just what to do to protect your legal rights in an efficient way and make you feel comfortable at the same time. Your secrets are safe with a ny divorce lawyer.

LegalView Updates Traumatic Brain Injury Information Portal With Additional Information on Causes of the Debilitating Injury

Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 23, 2008

LegalView, the number one site for everything and anything legal on the Internet, announced a recent update to its traumatic brain injury (TBI) information portal, which will now include causes of the debilitating injury. TBI is a serious injury that affects millions of Americans each year, some of which suffer from serious and life altering effects. Often, many individuals who have been involved in an accident where they suffered a TBI go without treatment, which can have severe side effects. Individuals who feel they may have been involved in a TBI incident should contact a medical professional immediately as well as consult an experienced brain injury law firm to learn about developing a lawsuit in which monetary compensation may be awarded, to help ease the difficulties with paying for the expensive medical bills often associated with TBI.

The new information on brain injury causes will detail ways in which TBI occurs in order for individuals to recognize and protect them from being involved in a TBI accident. TBI can have serious consequences ranging from memory loss and cognition side effects to motor skill loss to coma or amnesia. To learn more about the causes of TBI, visit http://brain-injury.legalview.com/brain-injury-causes.aspx to read the updated information.

Additionally, LegalView offers other recently updated information portals on several controversial prescription drugs including Chantix, Singulair and Digitek. Chantix, a smoking cessation aid, was first introduced to the market in May 2006 from Pfizer. In late 2007, nearly 400 reports from patients on the drug had been received by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding serious side effects that included depression, erratic behavior and suicidal thoughts and actions. The FDA issued a Public Health Advisory relating to the drug, though did not go so far as to issue a Chantix recall. However, nearly 3 million Americans had already been prescribed the medication.

Similar to the Chantix side effects are those of Singulair. Singulair is a prescription medication from Merck that was released in 1998. The drug is a preventative treatment for asthma and allergies that was discovered in early 2008 to have potential side effects including suicidal behavior among both adult and child patients. The FDA issued a statement saying it would review the Singulair risks and proceed from there, although thousands of patients may potentially remain at risk.

In addition to the Chantix and Singulair portals, LegalView recently created the Digitek digoxin information portal with information regarding the heart tablet’s serious risks for patients that include cardiac arrest and death. Digitek digoxin is prescribed to individuals suffering from irregular heartbeats, but after a manufacturing defect caused the pills to be produced with double the allotted dosage, the FDA issued a Class I Digitek digoxin recall.

Henley-Putnam University Hosts Information Security Webinar

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2010

How safe is the information we share through Facebook? Could the free exchange of personal data through public domains impact our safety? These questions and more will be answered during Henley-Putnam University’s FREE August webinar, Insider’s Guide to Open-Source Security Risks. Leading the webinar will be Colonel Michael Angley, former U.S. Air Force Special Agent and Senior Military Advisor to Henley-Putnam University.

Angley. “Information that we, as Americans, make available in the public domain can be aggregated over time by adversaries who may use this information to harm us.”

During the free webinar, Col. Angley will examine the proliferation of various social media networks, foreign perception of American culture, how data aggregation works, operations security, and immediate challenges facing our country with emerging social media platforms.

Insider’s Guide to Open-Source Security Risks will take place Wednesday, August 25, at 4:00 PM EDT (1:00 PM PDT). Those interested in participating in the webinar should register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/882714610. The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge.

The Information Processing Age, the Learning Parent and Child in Crisis

Sacramento, CA (Vocus) October 30, 2010

Many children are growing up hurt, often in dysfunctional homes. Their environment at home may lead to behaviors that can lead to learning problems in school, which in turn affect the parent and child bond. Author Christopher Slaton, Ed.D. addresses this important issue in his edifying new book, Education and Science: The Information Processing Age, the Learning Parent and Child in Crisis.

In this book, the author explores the meaning of information as sense data and received data in an effort to explain how human processing leads to information, knowledge, experience, and reflection. This is the Age of Human Systems Science, where the study of how people live, learn, think, and respond describes how they feel things and think through the things they feel. The struggles of a parent and child in crisis are considered, in the sense of how parents need to act as leaders and child developers and in the sense of how children need to act as learners and participants.

When the parent or child in crisis responds to an event it is to become more informed, which begins a rigorous, systemic, and objective work process where valid knowledge may be acquired as they move in relation to a set goal. This makes the act to live each day a practice and the act to learn a process relevant to the affect of education, science, and information processing. How one does the things he is told to do is called information processing. The body, brain, and senses make up a human learning system, which produces a response that goes through a process to release feelings and/or thoughts.

Education and Science: The Information Processing Age, the Learning Parent and Child in Crisis was written to help parents protect their childs right to learn how to grow as a green science. This is the human side of learning how to use space, energy, and time to help improve the way self and other people use the environment to live, learn, think, and respond. Every human being has to learn how to use the body and brain to act through times of pain or pleasure. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to Xlibris.com.

About the Author

Dr. Slaton has designed Parent Education and Resource Coordination Services (PERCS) to help children and families in crisis gain access to the right family, medical, educational, mental health, social work, and corrections professional to reduce the risk of cyclic declines due to learning, behavior, and conduct disorders that were not diagnosed in accordance with a child, youth, or young adults years of eligibility for a free and appropriate public school education. To change the factors that contribute to an inability to learn, behave, and control ones conduct, he or she has to become more informed about how to use a home, school, neighborhood, and workplace network to focus how they grow, mature, and develop in these places. This is why in his book Education and Science (2009), the process is described as a green technology. The participant learns how to improve their home, school, neighborhood, and workplace networks as a human asset. Hence, this is called the Building Human Asset Process.

Identity Thieves Find New Ways To Steal Personal Information


Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 11, 2011

Americans go to great lengths to protect against being robbed. We lock our doors, install alarm systems in our homes and cars, and insure our valuables. Many, however, do not pay an equal amount of attention to the crime that impacted more than eight million consumers last year, the crime of identity theft.

Recognizing that education is the key to prevention, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), National Sheriffs Association (NSA), and National Association of Triads (NATI) are proud to join forces bringing the fourth national Protect Your Identity Week (PYIW) to communities across the country October 16-22.

For the 11th year in a row, identity theft remained the number one most reported complaint to the Federal Trade Commission, further underscoring the need for this campaign, said Gail Cunningham, spokesperson for the NFCC. Criminals continually find new ways to rob us of our good name and good credit, making it critical for Americans to stay updated on the latest protection techniques.

Child identity theft is an example of one of the new ways crooks have found to wreck havoc in peoples lives, sometimes before they are even born. Childrens Social Security numbers are 51 times more likely to be stolen than an adults. Why? The crime goes unnoticed for years, usually not detected until the child attempts to obtain credit, applies for a job, college or government benefits. By then, the damage is done.

Consider the following statistics from a joint report based on research conducted by AllClear ID and the Carnegie Mellon Cylab:

Phones 4u launches information hub for parents on mobile internet safety

(PRWEB UK) 12 October 2012

Phones 4u is today launching an education programme to help parents understand the security options available on todays mobile phones to enable parents to make informed decisions to protect their children.

The programme follows insight conducted by ICM on behalf of Phones 4u which reveals that although 100 percent of parents are happy to buy their children a mobile phone, awareness of security tools is low with 71 percent of parents admitting that they havent used an internet safety tool and almost a third (29 percent) revealing they arent aware of such tools.

Instead, parents trust their children to police themselves online. 85 percent consider their children to be very aware of the potential risks of using the internet on their mobile phone, and 88 percent believe their children are open with them about how they use the internet on their phones.

Were looking to address the low awareness amongst parents about the range of security tools available on phones that are being used by children, to ensure they have the information they need to help their children stay safe online, comments Scott Hooton, Chief Commercial Officer at Phones 4u. While our research reveals the positive news that parents have a trusting relationship with their children, it also revealed more can be done by the industry to ensure parents stay informed of the security tools that are available to them.

Phones 4u has created a dedicated microsite to help guide people through the available tools both at network and device level which includes practical advice on installation. In addition, the subject of mobile security has been incorporated into Phones 4us consultative in-store sales process as well as on the Phones 4u website. This helps to ensure parents have the information they need to make decisions about the best handset and plans for their childs needs.

Susanna Scott, Founder, BritMums, says: Getting a mobile phone is a big and important step in the growth of a child, parents naturally want to understand the risks and do all they can to guide their children in the right direction. As a parent of three girls, one of which is in the process of getting a phone, I am very concerned about the safety aspects of mobile internet even though I trust my children to be sensible, you have a responsibility as a parent to make sure youre informed and educating them about the risks associated with anything they may be doing. This new site from Phone 4u is a much needed and very welcome source of information on the internet security options available across all mobile phone providers.

Will Gardner, CEO of Childnet, says: “With mobile phones increasingly becoming an integral part children’s lives, it is vital parents and carers are aware of the tools available to them as well as the key advice and information that they and their children need to use their phones safely and responsibly. The UK Mobile Operators have provided tools to help parents filter out age-inappropriate content, and we hope that this new guidance from Phones 4u can help highlight these tools to their customers”.

Hooton continues: When parents were offered information on security tools as part of the sales process, almost all were satisfied with it (92 percent) and more than half (55 percent) went on to use one of the tools. That tells us there is a real appetite for this information, and as an independent retailer we can provide impartial advice on the different security tools available for all the family.

A Silent Voice Provides Vital Information Right at Your Fingertips


Sheboygan, WI (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

With the number of high profile stories of missing people seemingly more frequent in the last month, more national awareness has been brought to this troubling issue. The statistics are alarming. According to the FBI, nearly 1,800 Americans are reported missing every day. While this number includes both juveniles and adults, most of those missing are under 18 years of age.

A progressive new service launched this month now provides the silent voice for loved ones suffering the anguish of a missing family member. IfIGoMissing.com provides users with a secure and user-friendly interface to store important information. In the event that a child or adult goes missing, a designated user can login and report the loved one as missing, and provide the contact information to law enforcement immediately.

The online service makes it easy for families to put all of the important information in a secure place. This is more of a proactive approach, said Jeremy Reynolds, founder of IfIGoMissing.com. The site is a means for you to store all of the information that the police would want to have at their fingertips.

At a time when emotions run high and concern for the loved one overtakes logical thought, this is the silent voice that does the talking. The type of information that can be stored on IfIGoMissing.com varies from hair and eye color to nicknames, the user can select what goes into the server, which uses high-performance encryption methods to secure the information.

Providing this important data to law enforcement in a timely manner can mean the difference in quickly locating a lost loved one. The first 24 hours are the most critical, but for the police the first 24 seconds are the most critical, said Reynolds.

About If I Go Missing

IfIGoMissing.com is a proactive approach to protecting loved ones. The service provides users with a secure interface to store important information such as medical and dental records, as well as identification and technological information. Once a missing person report is filed, the information gets transmitted to the police. For more information, please visit the website or info(at)ifigomissing(dot)com.







Edinburgh Napier University (ENU) Selects miiCard as Identity Provider for safi.re-Based Information Sharing Governance


Edinburgh, UK (PRWEB UK) 4 December 2012

Online identity verification company miiCard today announced that it will verify digital identities for ENUs online healthcare and childcare protection initiatives. ENU will use miiCards Level of Assurance 3 (LOA3) identity proofing service to safeguard sensitive healthcare and user data. With miiCard, ENU can prove a users identity to the level of an offline photo ID check before allowing policy-based access to the data in a controlled manner, enabling greater information sharing between organisations and within society.

These initiatives involve highly sensitive and private information, and it is critical that we know the identity of the person at the other end of the browser, said Professor Bill Buchanan, Professor of Computing at Edinburgh Napier University. miiCard delivers an unprecedented level of assurance and traceability when proving a users identity, and gives each user complete control over their own identity and what type of information they share online. It is only with this level of identity checking and trust that we can meet the UK governments three-year target for universal access to personal health records.

Edinburgh Napier University and miiCard will deploy their joint solution across three application areas:

1. Trusted Services for Holistic Care: This project focuses on developing a scaleable, robust and secure information architecture for holistic care that integrates information from primary and secondary care, along with the assisted living environment. The cloud-based platform employs a strong governance policy that integrates digital identity at its core to enable users to own their data, define access to it, and leverage it for a wide range of clinical services.

2. ee-Health Portal: Utilising the Trusted Services work, this broader solution incorporates a portal for clinical and social care services to verify the identity of a patient or citizen, and then allow them to access and share their personal health records.

3. Child Protection: In this integration with key Scottish and UK government initiatives, safi.re applies a federated identity infrastructure and information sharing system to a child concern portal where professionals across multiple agencies can monitor, share and implement action plans on behalf of at-risk children.

“We are proud to be a part of Edinburgh Napier Universitys pioneering safi.re solutions to important healthcare and child welfare needs online, enabling improvement in data sharing and ultimately quality of life for all of us as citizens, said miiCard CEO James Varga. These are powerful examples of the types of applications miiCard makes possible by creating true trust online.

miiCards Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform can prove a users identity completely online and in just minutes. Using the authority and security inherent in a users online financial accounts to validate identity, miiCards LOA3 service is able to verify approximately 300 million users across nine countries and five continents today.

About miiCard

miiCard is a global online identity verification service that allows a user to prove for the first time that I am who I say I am purely online and in real-time. miiCard empowers consumers to build trust on social networks, trade and transact easily and with confidence, and proactively manage their online identity. Vendors accepting miiCard as proof of online identity can increase conversions, reduce cost of execution and augment fraud and identity theft protection. miiCard currently supports the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, South Africa, India, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and France.

About Edinburgh Napier Universitys safi.re

Information sharing is an essential business requirement, allowing companies and organisations to combine skills, information and processes to deliver better services or products to their customers or citizens. In recent years, the demand for significant sharing of sensitive information has outstripped technologys ability to deliver this requirement securely and consistently.

safi.re (Structured Analysis and Filtering InfoRmation Engine), developed within Edinburgh Napier University and supported by a Scottish Enterprise Proof of Concept project grant, looks to address this technology gap, providing a governance framework and architecture between departments or organisations that controls, protects and provides the information while ensuring all compliance and policy requirements are met.
