High Tech Solution to the “Sexting” Epidemic


Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 17, 2009

The current “sexting” epidemic and the recent arrests of 6 Pennsylvania teens have parents scrambling to find solutions to a problem that surfaced seemingly overnight.

Sexting is the act of sending nude or explicit photos of oneself through the cell phone network or Internet to another cell phone. While this has undoubtedly been happening for quite some time it has just now gained media attention and parents are starting to pay attention.

What teens see as a joke or innocent fun is turning into one sticky mess that could land them in jail with possible probation or even prison time. What’s worse is the scarlet letter that follows. Being labeled as a registered sex offender stays with a person for life. It automatically disqualifies you from jobs that most people take for granted and could one day prevent you from doing something as simple as dropping off and picking up your own child from daycare or school.

“Our phones have been ringing off the hook,” says Jon Marshall, CEO of SpyGadgets.com in Houston, TX. “Parents just want to protect their kids and they are scared. Nobody wants to see their child end up in prison or have their future ruined just because of something like this.” Marshall sells a cell phone spy device that is used to recover data from the SIM card found in some cell phones on the market. It can let you view text messages stored to the SIM card, even deleted text messages. While it won’t recover pictures from the phone, reading the messages will give a parent an idea of what their teen is texting.

Cell phone companies are scrambling to give parents the tools to help combat this problem but it could be too little, too late. The “Cell Phone Spy Ultra” Spygadgets carries sells for under $ 170.00 and is ready to ship today. “I believe in trusting your kid and having open conversations but what about their friends? Who knows what they are sending your kid. Simply possessing an image of someone under 16 that is questionable could be considered child porn. And if the parent has even the tiniest bit of suspicion I highly suggest they take the extra step and just see for themselves what’s on that cell phone,” says Marshall.

Most adults don’t have the time to learn the ins and outs of cell phones and features available today were not even dreamed of 10 years ago. Marshall suggests that if you try to access your child’s cell phone and there is a lock code and you don’t know what it is you should be concerned. “Why does a kid need to keep you out of their cell phone with a secret code? This would raise my level of suspicion immediately,” he adds.

While the Cell Phone Spy only works on phones that use a SIM card there are other solutions. Cell phone stores commonly have the ability to access a cell phone by the USB or data port and retrieve contacts, pictures, and text messages. Contact your local carrier and see if they offer this service.

As States Continue to Adopt Anti-bullying Laws, Pandora Corp. Offers Parents an Effective Solution to Combat Cyberbullying in Their Homes and in Their Communities


Las Vegas, NV (Vocus) April 8, 2010

As Massachusetts waits for Governor Patricks signature on a recently passed anti-bullying law, nine teenagers have been charged with a mix of felony charges stemming from the suicide death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince. The prosecuting district attorney says the nine teens participated in physical threats and online harassment to a degree that caused Ms. Prince to take her own life in January.

According to the New York Times source article, the new Massachusetts law will require school staff members to report suspected incidents of bullying, and principals to investigate them. Principals, in some extreme cases, will be required to involve law enforcement. The bill also demands that schools teach about the dangers of bullying.

Though Massachusetts will be the 42nd state to adopt an official anti-bullying law, this case is receiving increased attention; for the first time, we may see bullies being held accountable for their actions. Pandora Corp. co-founder Jamie Leasure says this is sure to send a message home to bullies and their parents.

Parents really need to be aware of what their child is doing online and what is happening in their digital lives, explains Leasure. Just as much as parents should be concerned when their child is a victim, they should take steps to make certain their child is not an aggressor.

Leasure says the key to reducing cyberbullying is stopping incidents as quickly as possible.

Cyberbullying is the epidemic that parents, educators, the government and our industry all need to be focusing on now, states Leasure. But success really hinges on the parents of the kids involved both those of the victims and the bullies.

Pandora Corp. is the maker of PC Pandora 6.0 computer monitoring software. Much like the DVR on your TV, PC Pandora records everything and anything you tell it to on your PC. The software makes it possible for parents to view screenshots of every thing their child does on the computer and view all emails sent and received, instant messenger conversations, social networking chats and posts, websites visited and much more. Whatever a child does online, good or bad, PC Pandora will show the parents everything.

PC Pandora 6.0 lets parents know exactly what their young surfers are doing online and see first-hand how they are interacting with others, explains Leasure. If their child is being bullied, they will have records and information they can use to help put an end the situation.

PC Pandora can also work on the flip-side, when a parent may have a bully in their house.

According to Leasure: In some situations, PC Pandora might reveal that a child is the aggressor or a participant in the bullying. If that is the case, parents will have the information needed to sit down and talk to their child and put an end to the behavior before schools or law enforcement get involved.

PC Pandora 6.0 has two components that, in addition to keeping parents informed, will keep them informed throughout the day. The first is the built-in IRIS feature, which will send activity updates straight to the parents email. IRIS updates can be configured for as often as 5 minutes, or as infrequent as suits your needs.

The second feature is the brand new PC Pandora LIVE! service, which 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. If cyberbullying is taking place in your home, youll be able to see it within minutes and step in quickly to help stop it, whether you are on the road, at work, or even just in another room of the house.

Experts say parents are only half of the solution. Leasure agrees:

We need to continue educating our kids while reinforcing lessons of kindness. We must show our kids how to take a stand and help stop the bullying when they see it occurring. We also need to help them understand that what they say and do online will stick with them forever that includes the manner in which they treat others.

Fortunately, many school districts are already working with local law enforcement to bring students the education and awareness of cyberbullying they need. But with incidences of cyberbullying skyrocketing, it is clear both parents and students still have a lot of work to do in ending the epidemic.

Its truly a combination of parental awareness and education for our kids, states Leasure. PC Pandora 6.0 is the best tool available to raise awareness in parents. Educating the kids is up to all of us.

PC Pandora is the Solution for Summer Internet Safety


Las Vegas, NV (Vocus) May 27, 2010

The calendars say summer doesnt start until June 21st, but everyone knows the two events that really signify the start of summer are Memorial Day and school dismissal. With Memorial Day weekend just ahead and school bells starting to ring, summer vacation is just around the corner for millions of kids across the country.

The mid-year break used to mean playing outside all day with friends and hanging out with the neighborhood gang until the sun went down. A parents main concern was where their kids physically were and who they were hanging out with.

In the 21st century, the playgrounds are digital, explains Jamie Leasure, co-founder of Pandora Corp., makers of PC Pandora 6.0 monitoring software. The physical concerns of yesterday need to be expressed for the Internet today: who is your child hanging out with and what websites are they visiting?

No school means children will be spending more time online, as they sit at home during the summer days; but it also means an increase in two prevalent online threats: sexual predators and cyberbullies.

Parents need a solution that will effectively keep their kids safe on the Internet while the parent is outside the home, says Leasure. Ideally, its going to be something that removes any doubt and shows the parent exactly what their child is doing, while also being something they can check from work. That is exactly what our PC Pandora 6.0 monitoring software was created for.

PC Pandora is computer monitoring software that records all activity on the PC. Screen snapshots that can be viewed with a DVD-like playback function give PC owners the ability to see exactly what happened on their computer. The program also creates text-based logs of all emails sent and received, instant messenger conversations, websites visited, programs used, peer-to-peer activity and keystrokes. Data is presented in easy-to-read charts to provide parents with a quick and easy way to see exactly what their kids are doing and where they are spending their time online.

The key to real internet safety is knowledge, says Leasure. You have to know what your kids are doing in order to keep them safe. Filters are easy to get around and provide a false sense of security, but monitoring Internet activity with PC Pandora allows you to see absolutely everything that happens. If your child is talking to strangers and forming relationships online, you will see it; if your child is involved in cyberbullying, as victim or bully, you will see it.

For parents that have to leave the kids at home this summer and go to work, PC Pandora comes equipped with the IRIS feature, which sends email updates to parents at specified intervals.

Our IRIS email report feature is an indispensable tool for every working parent, says Leasure. IRIS allows them to monitor their child’s online behavior while at work or otherwise away from the home. You can see what websites your kids are on and who they are talking to while you are away.

But the newest feature of PC Pandora 6.0 is the one parents will find priceless. PC Pandora LIVE! allows parents to access the data recorded by PC Pandora from anywhere in the world through a safe and secure SSL encrypted website. All thats needed is an Internet connection and a web browser; users can even log in from their iPhones and other handheld devices.

With the LIVE! service, you can review the data and adjust settings on the monitored computer, explains Leasure. Not only can you can check web history and view instant messenger and email conversations, but you can view the screenshots, 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, PC Pandora 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, LIVE! makes it easier to view your childs activity no more emails to comb through and no more having to manually view the data on multiple computers.

The bottom line 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, especially while they are home alone all day. We feel strongly that our PC Pandora 6.0 monitoring software 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.

A 2-hour trial of PC Pandora is available at http://www.pcpandora.com. A summer promotion is currently running; use the code SUMMER2010 at checkout to save $ 10!

Nanny Costs Rising Au Pair Care International Au Pairs Are an Affordable Solution


San Francisco, CA (Vocus) June 10, 2010

The New York State Senate passed a bill last week requiring more paid protection for its domestic workers, including nannies. The new bill could result in increases in the cost of child-care for families, unless a caregivers benefits already meet the new standards. Au Pair Care, a leading au pair agency providing live-in childcare services to American families, already provides these benefits for its au pairs making it an affordable childcare alternative for New York families.

New York is the first state in the U.S. to pass legislation that provides domestic workers with basic labor protections. Known as the domestic workers bill of rights, the legislation guarantees protections such as paid holidays, sick days, vacation days and the right to overtime pay and collective bargaining. The bill would also require 14 days notice, or termination pay, before firing a domestic worker.

At Au Pair Care we are focused on providing host families with quality, live-in childcare while at the same time ensuring a good experience for our au pairs, said Sarah McNamara, director of matching and new product at Au Pair Care. The person caring for your child has such an important job. At Au Pair Care we ensure that au pairs receive vacation, a weekly stipend, and medical benefits according to federal regulations governing U.S. Department of State au pair programs. This simplifies the burden on families and also provides peace of mind.

Au Pair Cares program offers affordable childcare at an equivalent of $ 7.50 per hour, plus room and board, which provides families full-time childcare with all program fees remaining the same, regardless of the number of children. Au pairs work flexible hours, up to 45 hours per week. In addition, they perform duties related to childcare such as meal preparation, laundry and cleaning up the play area.

Knowing I have set time off, insurance, sick days, and local support makes being an au pair easier, as I can focus all my attention on caring for my host child, said Anita Kuzmanoska from Macedonia, a New York-placed au pair with Au Pair Care.

About Au Pair Care

Au Pair Care (http://www.aupaircare.com) is a leading au pair agency providing live-in childcare services to American families since 1989. Designated by the U.S. Department of State, Au Pair Care offers superior childcare to fit families unique needs. Au Pair Care has made more than 40,000 successful au pair placements across the U.S. Au Pair Care is a division of Intrax Cultural Exchange, a family of organizations devoted to cultivating international understanding through cultural exchange and educational programs, with operations in more than 80 countries worldwide.

A Solution for Unequal Access to Legal Services in this Country


Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 09, 2012

Shpoonkle is successfully providing a solution for unequal access to legal services in this country. Recent reports indicate the legal services system in many states currently tip the scales of justice, so that those who can afford legal representation in civil matters get qualified legal services, and those who cannot afford it are left with few options. In a NY Times article ‘Judge Details a Rule Requiring Pro Bono Work by Aspiring Lawyers’ wrote: “The financial crisis and a slow economy have increased the demand for civil legal services. A task force convened by the judge in 2010 to evaluate the need in the state found that only 20 percent of the legal needs of New York residents were being met. Among those who rarely have the help of a lawyer are people involved in eviction, child support and consumer credit cases.” Other states across the country have cited similar findings. Shpoonkle is successfully changing this situation for many legal consumers.

One documented issue that affects our entire nation is unequal access to legal services. These recent statistics indicate that almost a million citizens are confronted with some sort of civil legal issue and cannot afford access to qualified legal services. Without the access to legal assistance many of these people may lose their homes, rights in child custody, or other rights for important aspects of their lives. Shpoonkle.com is successfully facilitating change to offer options and increased accessibility on a broad and national scale.

Those who cannot afford conventional legal services can try and get legal assistance through legal aid, but the burdened system does not have the resources to assist the volume of those who require help. If someone requires a criminal attorney and cannot afford one, they will be provided with a public defender. Yet, in civil matters there is no mandated assistance.

Additionally, legal aid is available based on varying factors, where a person lives, income level if it falls at or below the poverty level, and available funding. A report called Access Across America by the Civil Justice Infrastructure Mapping Project found: States differ substantially in the resources available to support civil legal assistance, in the kinds of services that are available, and in the groups served by existing programs. Little coordination exists for civil legal assistance, and existing mechanisms of coordination often have powers only of exhortation and consultation. Thus, in most states, the publics civil legal needs are not routinely assessed and no entity can ensure that services in specific areas match the needs of the eligible populations in those areas. Shpoonkles online model enables everyone in any state, who needs an attorney to gain equal access to qualified attorneys and negotiate pricing. It provides the legal consumers in need with choices.

Gerald Ellis wrote in The Legal Finance Journal an article the ‘Income Inequality and Unequal Access to Justice’ “But this is America, so when times are hard like they are now, when the economy is sputtering along, and when millions of people are forced to deal with the legal system to work out everything from housing to credit card debts, the issue of lopsided justice looms large. After all, stated otherwise the adage could just as easily read: unequal access to justice is hardly justice at all.” The article used New York as an example, stating that 99% of those who were being evicted fought without an attorney, and 70% of those facing foreclosure also did so without an attorney. Shpoonkle finds these statistics are staggering and alarming, as they represent a larger problem. The problem does not just exist in the fees charged but that so many pro se litigants are not fully able to represent their matters to the best outcomes without attorneys. Shpoonkle allows the same pro se litigants an opportunity to try and get legal representation at an affordable price.

Shpoonkle is leveling the playing field so that income and access are no longer barriers to protecting the rights of legal consumers. Whether its someone who needs help with a foreclosure, divorce, an accident, or starting a new business, Shpoonkle is equalizing pricing for legal services.

About Shpoonkle

Shpoonkle promotes advocacy to their members with free services. Shpoonkle is an innovative free web site that allows clients to confidentially post a legal case on line where attorneys bid for that case. The client has the option to pick any of the bidders and can communicate privately with the attorneys.

QualityStocks News – Virtual Piggy Signs Agreements with Four Fashion Companies to Utilize Protective E-Commerce Solution

Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) November 03, 2012

QualityStocks would like to highlight Virtual Piggy, Inc., a publicly traded technology company delivering online solutions for parents and merchants that allow children to interact online in a safe and secure manner. Children under 18 spend hours a day playing and interacting online and they often want the capability to also make purchases online. These young consumers have an estimated $ 50 billion in annual spending power, with much of that spending taking place online.

In the companys news yesterday,

Virtual Piggy announced that it has entered into agreements with four fashion companies that will soon feature VPIGs free payment technology.

Retailers All The Above, As Is, Violet Love and Sub_Urban RIOT have formed partnerships with VPIG to take advantage of the companys e-commerce solution, ultimately strengthening the providers visibility while offering safe transactions among youth.

Adding these four strong fashion brands continues to build up our merchant base for apparel, Virtual Piggy founder and CEO Dr. Jo Webber stated in the press release. All The Above, As Is, Violet Love and Sub_Urban RIOT are four unique brands with exceptional product lines, offering our customers yet more options when using their Virtual Piggy account.

VPIGs technology not only allows children to make online purchases without revealing their name or age, it also provides parents with the ability to monitor or approve purchases.

Heres how it works.

To make an online purchase from a participating merchant, such as the ones listed above, a child selects the Virtual Piggy icon to checkout. The purchase is either approved or denied based on pre-established conditions set by the parent in the childs profile. Once the purchase is approved, per the profile, the transaction is then advanced to the payment processor.

The parental control mechanism is compliant with the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPA), which is federally enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
