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

Pandora Corp. Announces Launch of PC Pandora LIVE!; Releases PC Pandora 6.0


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 28, 2010

As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, child online safety is a very real parenting concern. Internet predators scour the Internet every day looking to take advantage of kids; scam artists try to trick our kids into giving out personal information; and cyberbullying is an out-of-control epidemic.

It can be a truly daunting challenge to keep your kids safe online, while at the same time affording them enough freedom to explore the Internet and grow socially. But there is a solution out there for parents and it just got even better.

“We are incredibly excited about the release of PC Pandora LIVE! and PC Pandora 6.0,” states Pandora Corp. co-founder Jamie Leasure. “We have not only added a nice list of new features and upgrades to the familiar PC Pandora program, but the new LIVE! component gives parents the ability to keep their kids safe online from anywhere at any time.”

The new PC Pandora LIVE! service allows users to access the data recorded by PC Pandora from anywhere in the world. PC Pandora uploads recorded activity to the safe and secure SSL encrypted LIVE! website. All you need then is an Internet connection and a web browser. You can even log in from your iPhone and many other handheld devices.

“With the LIVE! service, you can review the data and adjust settings on the monitored computer,” explains Leasure. “You can check web history, update Internet filters, and fine-tune the parental control parameters, all while at work, on the road, or simply unable to be at home in front of the monitored computer.”

For users monitoring multiple computers, LIVE! collects the data from all of the computers that you are monitoring and provides that data in a single place for easy review. While the IRIS function built into PC Pandora is still a great tool, this makes it easier to view your child’s activity – no more emails to comb through and no more having to manually view the data on multiple computers.

PC Pandora LIVE! builds upon the successful PC Pandora program originally released over five years ago. Now, version 6.0 is the latest parental control and computer monitoring software that records all activity on a computer. First-rate monitoring capabilities take sequential snapshots of everything that happens on the screen. In effect, PC Pandora acts as a DVR for your machine and allows you to play back everything and anything your child did both on and offline. Further details of user activity are made available in text-based files, including emails sent and received, instant messenger chats, websites visited, keystrokes logged, peer-2-peer files shared, programs accessed, Internet search queries and more.

“We’ve added some great features to the PC Pandora program in our new 6.0 release,” says Leasure. “By incorporating the advanced features of our flagship enterprise monitoring product, The Office Software, we’ve made data even easier to review through graphs and added the ability to monitor network usage, bandwidth consumption and printer activity.”

PC Pandora 6.0’s new style of data presentation through charts allows parents to quickly analyze recorded data and dig deeper if necessary. In a quick glimpse, you can see which websites and which programs were utilized the most. In addition, PC Pandora 6.0 keeps track of who is downloading/uploading data over the network, with what program, and the amount of data sent/received. This allows you to prevent bandwidth abuse. Finally, PC Pandora 6.0 allows you to monitor any printers connected to the network. Find out how many pages were printed, when and by whom.

“Most parents know by now that kids are savvy enough to bypass standard Internet filters and controls,” explains Leasure. “That’s why we feel that being able to see what your kids are doing is just as important as setting up roadblocks and restricting access. If you can see what they are doing, you can talk to them about it and keep them in check.”

Pandora Corp. has continuously urged parents to educate themselves about the Internet and to talk to their kids about potential dangers. Like most experts, Leasure says that discussion is key. But computer monitoring software like PC Pandora will give parents the knowledge they need to have that discussion, without being left in the dark. For many parents, it will offer reassurance and – hopefully – peace of mind.

“The bottom line here is you have to know what your kids are doing online,” says Leasure. “Where they are going and who they are talking to is key. We feel strongly that PC Pandora 6.0 coupled with the LIVE! service is the best all-around defense parents can get to help keep their children safe online. If someone is approaching a child with ill intentions, or if a child is engaging in risky behavior, the parent will know and can act immediately.”

About PC Pandora: Pandora Corporation was formed with one goal – to help our customers monitor, control and protect their families and themselves online. First released in mid 2005, PC Pandora has been constantly upgraded to industry-leading specifications and has received accolades from users, reviewers and even school districts and law enforcement agencies, who use the program to help in the day-to-day supervision of the children and citizens they are charged with protecting. The company website devotes space to helping parents by providing them with 18 Tips to Safe Surfing and Pandora’s Blog, where current news in the world of online safety is discussed regularly. In addition, the Pandora Corp. has made the PD Pandora Internet Safety Symposium available to schools and law enforcement as a free resource for spreading internet safety awareness to parents. Over the past few years, PC Pandora has vaulted into a leadership position for parental control software by boasting a combination of features that are unparalleled in the monitoring industry. In 2010, Version 6.0 was released, again widening the spectrum of coverage and protection offered by the program. Concurrently released with 6.0, the web-based PC Pandora LIVE! service affords parents the ability to keep their kids safe from anywhere at anytime. PC Pandora is also now available through the Pandora Corp. store at Amazon.com.

Publicrecordfinder.com Releases Consumer Resource Guide to Build Awareness of What Public Records Offer Including Criminal Records and Property Records


Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) October 12, 2010

Publicrecordfinder.com, an online public records search site, has just published the following consumer resource guide that helps consumers become aware of what public records can offer and how they can make use of these powerful tools that contain vital information.

The government, at all levels, records every important event, transaction, and litigation concerning its citizens. In the United States, there is no centrally available database where all of these public records are integrated. Most of the critical information sought is recorded in a variety of public records that are maintained in different databases across agencies, states and cities, and includes information such as:

San Francisco Bay Area Tax Attorney Releases “Buying U.S. Real Estate When Your Child Studies In America” Guide for Non Resident Aliens


(PRWEB) August 30, 2011

Silicon Valley estate planning and probate lawyer Janet Brewer has released a new guide, “Buying U.S. Real Estate When Your Child Studies In America.” The free 14 page guide is available at calprobate.com/NRA.

If you are a non-citizen putting a title in your name, it makes sense to have a qualified advisor help you avoid tax traps, says Brewer. Otherwise, if something were to happen, you would only be entitled to a $ 60,000 exemption from U.S. gift and estate taxes. Non-resident aliens (NRAs) pay a much higher rate of gift and estate taxes than U.S. citizens. The good news is that with a smart investment in good counsel, you can protect both your loved ones and your assets.

Real-World Examples Illustrate Key International Estate Planning Issues

Brewer gives examples of nonresident aliens from several countries to illustrate key questions, issues and choices such families often face. The examples are made up, she explains, but if your situation is anything like those in my examples, you need the help of an experienced international estate planning attorney.


Example #1: The Sasakis Learn the Risks of Online Legal Forms: If something happened to Emiko and Dai Sasaki of Tokyo, their son Hiro, a student at Stanford, could face a tax bill of $ 143,000. Learn how Dai hires an attorney and creates a tax-saving plan.

Example #2: The Francos Coordinate Estate Planning Between Countries: Genevieve Franco of Paris studies at USF and lives in the Francos’ second home in Burlingame. Learn why the Francos urgently need an attorney’s help to coordinate estate planning between the U.S. and France.

Example #3: The Laus Benefit From Proper Healthcare Authorizations: Kim Lau of Hong Kong, a student at California University of Management and Technology, gets injured one day. Learn which documents on file authorize his doctors to share health information with his parents.

Example #4: The Patels Fire Their Prepaid Legal Plan: The Patels of Bangalore, whose daughter Kali is entering Menlo College, try a prepaid legal plan for international estate planning. Learn why they soon switch to working with a highly regarded attorney instead.

Example #5: The Vogels Pass On Both Values and Valuables: Peter Vogel of Frankfurt owns a Pacific Heights home. Learn how he structures his estate plan to express his values to his daughter Iris, who is entering law school at Hastings, and to future grandchildren.

Trend: More NRAs Purchasing in College Areas

The United States has long been a desirable place to own property. A recent survey by the National Association of Realtors as part of its 2011 Profile of International Home Buying Activity found that the number of foreign exchange students at U.S. colleges and universities has increased the demand for real estate by foreign buyers. Many foreign families purchase U.S. properties in college areas so their child has a place to live and to take advantage of what appears to be a buyers market.

Why Putting Off Estate Planning Is Especially Risky for NRAs

Some people consider it bad luck to discuss death, acknowledges Brewer. But its important to set aside our emotions and consider a key fact: Federal estate and gift tax laws impose onerous restrictions on non-citizens – even if you have a green card. Consider:

Outright gifts during your lifetime to a non-U.S. citizen spouse including making him or her joint owner of certain assets can trigger gift tax problems immediately.

A non-resident non-citizen with no green card who bought a $ 1.5 million house with cash, intending to leave it to one of his children through a will or trust could trigger an estate tax of $ 495,000. With advice from the right expert, she could avoid that tax bill.

Likewise, gifts at death to a non-citizen spouse may not qualify for the unlimited marital deduction. Your unsuspecting widow or widower may be forced to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in estate taxes shortly after your death.

If an investor buys a $ 1.5 million property in U.S. and dies owning it without ever having put it in a trust, the probate cost alone could be as much as $ 28,000. If that investor also happens to be a non-resident alien, the estate taxes could be $ 495,000.

The takeaway: Even if your estate is modest, the tax effects of poor planning on NRAs can be devastating.

Series of Guides Cover a Range of Perspectives

The guide released today is one in a series of estate planning and asset protection guides offered by Brewer at calprobate.com/resources:

Choosing Your Bay Area Estate Planning Attorney: 6 Point Checklist, 4 Examples, 15 FAQs, Typical Fees, and More (June 2011)

U.S. Gift Tax and Estate Tax Planning for Non-Residents and Non-Citizens (Feb 2011)

Year End Tax Law Update for Bay Area Families (2010)

Tax Law Update for San Francisco Bay Area CPAs Serving High Net Worth Clients (2010)

How to Choose Your Trustee in California (2010)

Brewer also publishes each week at the California Probate, Trusts, and Estate Law Blog and posts tips and links on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Those on Brewer’s mailing list get the earliest notice about new resources when they come available.

Examining Your Options Now

In my 20+ years as an estate planning attorney, I’ve found that most families and perhaps especially nonresident aliens (NRAs) want straight talk when it comes to legal and financial matters, Brewer says. Too many parents of children studying in America fly in the dark when it comes to securing their loved ones financial future. I have heard so many heart breaking stories of families having to pay dearly during painful times because they lacked an adequate estate plan. My team and I can set up documentation, write any complex agreements, and take other steps to help protect families. But only you can take the very first step: examining your options now.

About the Law Offices of Janet L. Brewer

If you’re like most people, you don’t want to think about what might happen to your loved ones after you’re gone — or to you if you were to become disabled. But for lasting peace of mind, effective estate planning is a necessity. It involves asking, What is truly important to me? Who should care for my minor children? How much money is “enough” to leave to my family? What should be my financial legacy?

We help guide you in addressing these issues, with legal services for wills, trusts & estates. We specialize in:

International estate planning for non resident aliens
Probate services for those in the Silicon Valley area
Asset protection for Bay Area families
California estate planning
Fiduciary counseling and estate administration

Ensure you get a responsive, straight-forward approach to estate planning from an experienced estate planning professional. Janet Brewer is a Palo Alto probate, trusts, and estate planning attorney with an advanced degree in tax law. She has practiced California estate planning, advanced gift-planning, and California probate law exclusively since 1991, and is Certified as a Specialist in Estate Planning and Probate Law by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.

Our Nations Youngest Children at Risk: Easter Seals Releases State-by-State Report on Early Intervention


Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 08, 2011

Easter Seals this morning released a new report Our Nations Children at Risk: A State-by-State Report on Early Intervention during its 2011 International Convention currently being held in Washington, D.C. In meetings with Members of Congress on The Hill today, more than 300 Easter Seals volunteers, staff and families with disabilities will share both the reports findings and a petition with nearly 40,000 signatures urging legislators to invest in young children.

The new report details how well each state takes care of its youngest children with disabilities and delays. The unfortunate news: infants and toddlers in nearly every state continue to fall behind, many will never catch up.

With the right investment in treatment and therapy before the age of five, we can ensure every child in America can enter school ready to learn, says Katy Neas, senior vice president, government relations, Easter Seals and Make the First Five Count spokesperson.

While there are many choices for families seeking early identification and early intervention services, the federally funded Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Part C program offers families of children under the age of 3 with services designed to help them facilitate their infant or toddlers development. Its a program created to help young children with disabilities or developmental delays catch up with their peers without disabilities, or enhance their development so they can better learn and grow.

In October 2011 the nation celebrated IDEAs 25th anniversary, yet the legislation has never been fully or adequately funded. Nationally, approximately 2.67 percent of children under the age of three are enrolled in the Part C program. And yet, data from the National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center indicates nearly 13 percent of all children under the age of three should be served, using current eligibility criteria. Data from the US Maternal and Child Health Bureau indicate nearly 20 percent of all children could benefit from early identification and early intervention services.

The Report: Highlights

The Easter Seals report highlights some bright spots. States including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Mexico, Wyoming, New York and New Hampshire serve more than 4 percent of their population through the Part C program of IDEA. These six states reach far more children with disabilities and delays than other states, with more young children able to access the critical services and supports they need early in life.

These states are on the right track, and should serve as an example to others, but we know its just the beginning. We have to convince state and federal policy makers about the value of investing in the Part C program, adds Neas.

This is especially true in states that serve fewer than 2 percent of their population including Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Montana, Missouri, Arkansas and the District of Columbia.

Nobel Prize winning economist, Dr. James Heckman reports, early childhood investments pay dividends for the life of the child and each dollar invested returns $ 60-$ 300 dollars over the lifetime. Every year, 1.45 million children with disabilities under age 5 go undiagnosed, entering kindergarten with delays that put them behind their peers most coping with learning and health difficulties that are often completely treatable. Funding for programs that help kids with special needs is already inadequate and with major budget cuts up for consideration in Congress, millions more could fall through the cracks.

Its clear its in our national interest to invest in the Part C program, continues Neas.

Make the First Five Count for Young Children

Easter Seals is sharing the report across the United States, engaging in discussions about the importance of early intervention with federal, state and local legislators, community leaders, educators, other nonprofits, media, and our volunteers, families and staff. The data and stories serve as a factual, and humanized, resource for parents and advocates of young children and those looking to learn more about early intervention.

Easter Seals created Make the First Five Count to advocate for children at risk for developmental delays or disabilities and ensure they get the support they need to be school-ready and build a foundation for a lifetime of learning. Through Make the First Five Count, Easter Seals is calling on Congress to protect and grow funding for Part C by $ 100 million, for a total of $ 539 million, in the years to come.

If you believe all kids deserve a chance to learn, build lifelong skills, and achieve their dreams, speak out today!

Become a part of the solution. Join Easter Seals at MaketheFirstFiveCount.org.

The Report: States by the Numbers

The individual state profiles within the report provide a comprehensive overview of the current status of federal and state funding for early intervention services through the Part C program of IDEA in each of the 50 states and the District of Colombia. Easter Seals looked at funding levels compared not only to the number of children (ages 0-3) served under Part C every year, but also how many children fail to receive the proper screenings to identify their special need and how many children are at risk for developmental delays, autism or disabilities in each state. And finally, for each state, Easter Seals shared at least one local story of a young child who is truly thriving because of the early services and support he or she received.

Its also important to note, funding cuts or limitations have forced states to make difficult choices to limit the number of children who are eligible for Part C services to those children with only the most significant disabilities. The report identifies the number of children who may have mild to moderate disabilities, developmental delays or who are at risk for developmental delays who could benefit from such services — beyond those children who are currently eligible.

About Easter Seals

Easter Seals is the leading non-profit provider of services for individuals with autism, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities and other special needs. For more than 90 years, we have been offering help and hope to children and adults living with disabilities, and to the families who love them.

Matrix Direct Releases Infographic on America’s Most Deadly Jobs


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2012

Matrix Direct, a nationwide leader in direct-to-consumer term life insurance products, today released a new infographic showing which jobs put American workers at the greatest risk of dying.

The informative and innovative infographic can be seen by visiting http://www.matrixdirect.com/about-us/insurance-education/is-your-job-killing-you. By sharing the infographic on Social Media or blogs, consumers can help Matrix Direct spread the word about Americas most dangerous jobs.

The new infographic illustrates that work-related accidents and mishaps are a leading cause of death in the United States every year. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4,547 Americans died on the job in 2010. Thats 23% less than 2000, when 5,915 people died at work, but still an alarming number of work-related deaths.

The statistics also mean that in 2010, about 3.5 workers died for every 100,000 people who are employed in the United States. While the odds of dying on the job are not as great as being killed in a car accident or in other more common causes of death, work-related deaths still claim thousands of Americans every year.

Top 10 Most Dangerous Jobs

According to the U.S. government statistics, the most dangerous jobs in 2010 were (listed in descending order, with the most dangerous on top):

Fisherman

Logger

Airline Pilot

Farmer/Rancher

Mining Machine Operator

Roofer

Sanitation Worker

Truck Driver/Deliveryman

Industrial Machine Repairman

Police Officer

Help Protect a Financial Future

People who work in one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs or in other professions that are equally as dangerous do have options. And it doesnt have to mean getting a new and safer job, either.

Purchasing a term life insurance policy can be a great way to help financially provide for a spouse, child, or other loved ones long after a policyholder dies in a work-related accident. For less money than most people spend on coffee or cable television each month, workers can help protect their familys financial future with affordable and reliable term life insurance.

In some cases, workers in dangerous professions may be excluded from buying term life insurance, due to the higher-than-normal risks of death associated with their work. For those workers, an Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance policy might provide some type of financial protection against serious injury or death in on-the-job accidents.

About Matrix Direct

Matrix Direct, Inc. is one of the countrys leading life insurance agencies. Over five million Americans have contacted Matrix Direct for the best term life insurance quotes. Matrix Direct, Inc. is a subsidiary of American General Life Insurance Company, Houston, TX and an affiliate of The United States Life Insurance Company in the City of New York, NY, NY. Agency services provided by Matrix Direct Insurance Services in CA (#0B57619), ME, MA, and OK; Matrix Direct Insurance Agency, Inc. in UT; and Matrix Direct, Inc. in AR(#246412) and all other states, except SD.
