Online safety for children Information technology has increased significantly overtime, bringing advantages and disadvantages with it. The use of the Internet has made it easier and quicker to access numerous subjects from vacation planning, to the best plumber in town. Students find it helpful for schoolwork when they need to research topics for papers because it gives one access to countless amounts of information. Students without Internet at home can easily go to their school or city library to use the computers and Internet they provide. With such a large amount of access to the Internet, it can become a danger for children because it is so easily accessible to look up any subject. These are just some of the reasons the government stepped in to regulate Internet usage for children. The children’s Internet protection act of 2000 enforces elementary school, secondary school, and libraries with Internet access to block material deemed harmful to minors. These facilities must provide certification to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that they have installed technology for computers with Internet access, which filters this harmful information. This requirement for Internet safety protects against access to visual depictions that are pornographic or considered obscene in any way (Universal Service Administrative Company, 2003). This is a condition to receive a discount on telecommunications services by the Universal Service Fund, a federal program for qualified schools, hospitals, and other institutions. E-Rate is the commonly used name for these programs, which is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under direction of the FCC (Universal Service Administrative Company, 2003). The Internet opened up so many new ways for children to be taken advantage…...

...All children are affected by the violence in their homes. Regardless of whether or not our children have been physically abused, watching their mother being battered is a frightening experience. Children from violent homes can exhibit a variety of behaviors. Some may "act out" and may be viewed as delinquent. Domestic violence is an ongoing experience of physical, psychologic, and/or sexual abuse in the home that is used to establish power and control over another person.1 Although awareness about the rate of domestic violence in our society is increasing, the public health ramifications have only recently been recognized in the medical community. The majority of the medical literature to date has focused on the effect of domestic violence on the primary victim. What effect does witnessing domestic violence have on secondary victims, such as children who live in homes where partner abuse occurs? It is estimated that 3.2 million American children witness incidents of domestic violence annually.2 Witnessing domestic violence can lead children to develop an array of age-dependent negative effects. Research in this area has focused on the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional effects of domestic violence. Children who witness violence in the home and children who are abused may display many similar psychologic effects.3,4 These children are at greater risk for internalized behaviors such as anxiety and depression, and for externalized behaviors such as fighting, bullying, lying,......

...Safety Slogans Here are some safety slogans that will help you to make safety a way of life. [pic] Safety is a very important aspect of life, be it at home, out on the road, or at the workplace. Here is a collection of some great safety slogans that you can use on posters to stick up in your office or in your home, or use in presentations, or send as emails. Safety isn't just a slogan, it's a way of life. Better to be safe than to be sorry! Chance takers are accident makers. Be alert! Accidents hurt. A safer you is a safer me. Unprepared = Unsafe. Anyone driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac. The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it. Remember - Safety is not a job; it is a way of life. Safety is a cheap and effective insurance policy While on a ladder, never step back to admire your work Safety doesn't slow the job down but mishaps do. A spill, a slip, a hospital trip. Your safety is everyone's responsibility, especially yours. You can't get home, unless you're safe. Ignoring a warning can cause much mourning. The adage "look before you leap" is a lifesaver. The safe way is the right way When jogging, run against the traffic flow. Wear the right protective equipment for the job. Use the right tool for the job. Just because you always did it that way, doesn't make it right. Safety is something you learn from the start - Being accident......

...Protecting children under the age of 13 online. By: Brook Knight The protection of young children online is more important than ever. The soul responsibility falls onto the shoulders of the child’s parent or guardian, however, the government plays a role to help. US federal laws like COPPA and Children’s Internet Protection Act, 2000 work hand in hand together to restrict content being shared with children’s information and viewing. We do not want our young children having access to harmful content such as pornography. CIPA (Children’s Internet Protection Act) does require K-12 schools and libraries in the US to use measures like filters to protect children from online harmful content in order to receive federal funding. Schools and libraries can overcome the use of filters by not accepting federal funding and discounts. CIPA was signed into law on 12/21/2000. As defined by the Federal Trade commission is Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule ("COPPA") stands for Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) regulates the collection and use of children’s personal information by website operators. COPPA imposes strict requirements on operators of websites or online services directed to children under 13 years of age, and on operators of other websites or online services that have actual knowledge that they are collecting personal information online from a child under 13 years of age.

It is also an intimate book, attentive to childhood memories of people and neighbourhoods. In both these respects, subject and method, the novel has sources which influenced and informed its construction, and these will be discussed in more detail below. One of them is the novel The Tin Drum by Günter Grass, first published in German in 1959. In 1985, Rushdie paid this tribute to Grass and to the novel: In the summer of 1967 . . . when I was twenty years old, I bought from a bookshop in Cambridge a paperback copy of The Tin Drum . . . There are books that open doors for their readers . . . And then there are readers who dream of becoming writers . . . [For them] there are (if they are lucky) books which give them . . . permission to become the sort of writers they have it in themselves to be. This is what Grass's great novel said to me in its drumbeats: Go for broke. Always try and do too much. Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath before you begin talking. Aim for the stars. Keep grinning. Be bloody minded. Argue with the world. This...

Online Education

...afternoon everyone, Today, we have a dream that online education should be used widely. I would talk about how online education helps people at different ages and different educational levels. Firstly, Online education is much better for some smart students who want to learn more. Actually, they often want to get higher grades, they have the strong goal to achieve. So, with the help of online study, not only they can get the more educational resources from the Internet, but also they could benefit more between the campus and online study. Secondly, Online education helps young woman and mothers to continue to study and get a degree. Young woman who has a baby could choose online education because they can study at home safety. Mothers who need to take care their children and family could choose online education. Because they can save the time to go to campus and take care their children carefully at home. At the same time, they can get the degree easily as same as the others on the campus. Thirdly, online education might be a good choice for people who are engaged in full time jobs to study and get degree. If they take on campus courses, may be they don’t have time to continue with their business and even more seriously, they will lose their jobs. So if they want to have higher education, if they want to have more working experience, if they want to get more chances to choose the companies, there is no question that online education is a good choice to help......

...Health, safety and nutrition Amanda Gonzalez Kaplan University CE220 Child Safety, Nutrition and Health Professor Mary Ball March 7, 2015 Parents are often asked what is the most important thing they look for when seeking a high quality childcare center, a healthy and safe environment is always at the top of the list. Early childhood professionals promote physical, mental health, appropriate nutrition and provide an emotionally, physically safe environment for young children in partnership with their families. Sound health, safety, and nutritional practices provide the foundation for development and learning. Good nutrition is critical to overall development of young children. Meals and snacks encourage good nutrition and eating habits. A safe environment prevents and reduces injuries for young children who are only beginning to recognize dangerous situations (Academics). With all this in mind, childcare providers must include parents in their efforts to create healthy and safe environments and teach healthy habits to the children in their child care program. There are numerous ways to help promote age appropriate learning activities that reinforce the importance of health, nutrition and safety. Children learn the best when they are doing things they enjoy. One age appropriate activity for the age range of 3-5 could be coloring. This activity is a great way for children to express their creativity while learning.......

Ads for Children

...services. Children have also been highly exposed to different types of advertisements, which have helped them to build their taste and preferences since young ages. Most of the times, however, advertisements have contributed for unhealthy habits and even obesity. On the other hand, the ability of sharing information, do online researching and read other people’s reviews have helped people to become more aware of unsafe, hazardous or defective products. In this paper, I am going to talk about my point of view of advertisements for children (mainly regarding food products) and safety recalls. I believe that advertisement for children is such a debatable issue because it values two different things. First, it involves freedom of speech, which I believe that companies have the right of promoting their products and services the way they want. If companies have become more experienced and intelligent about promoting toys and foods for children, high sales will be their reward. Therefore, I do not think it is fair for other people to tell companies how they should advertise their products since their marketing team have studied their whole life to always find the most persuasive way of selling a product. On the other hand, I believe that our human compassion should be put into consideration. Marketing and promotion of products have led to a capitalist world, where the biggest goal of companies is to make money. As stated in the “Sweet Deal – Breakfast Cereal Advertising to......

...industry, Safety is one of the most critical factor. Research Objectives Literature Review At a time when many companies are emphasizing on improving their business processes, operational efficiency and enhancing pro people focus, safety is one of the most important areas of improvement. It becomes even more critical in a labor intensive industries like manufacturing and construction. Most of the industries have adopted a well set standard operating procedures and efforts are on to get it better day by day. The focus of our study has been to identify the factors which affects the safety awareness, minimizes accidents at workplace and as a result meets operational efficiency of the organization. When the effect of these factors are positive, we may conclude that the organization is people oriented. Previous Studies: One of the earlier studies in this area was conducted by Cox & Cox in the year 1991 for European industrial gas sector. It had considered five factors affecting the safety parameters – effectiveness of arrangements for safety, individual responsibility, individual skepticism, safeness of work environment and personal immunity. This study was done not keeping in mind any specific industry and later on further studies revealed that model and frameworks for employee attitudes to safety may be dependent on the context and hence a generic study for overall industry may not be appropriate. Subsequent study by Cox, Sue & Tomas in the year 1997 on......

...Argumentative essay: Online education  A stronger thesis would be, “Online classes are a better choice than traditional classroom learning because they’re more flexible for students and teachers, they're less expensive and they let student’s works at their own pace.” Do you know online education? Online education is one of the ways to learn various subjects. We can take a lecture or hand in our assignments through the Internet. Therefore, people can learn what they want to learn whenever or wherever they want. In America, some colleges adopt this education. However, this new way to educate students is not prevailed in all countries because in some countries, they have enough educational system for students. Although some countries have enough colleges or educational system, the online education should be a part of educational system in all colleges for three reasons: cost, environmental and flexibility. First, online education can give a good influence in educational cost. To be sure, some people have enough money to go to college and online education is not necessary because there are many professors who teach various kinds of subjects and we can ask directly what we want to know without paying money. However, when we think about the poor people with some problems, we can understand the thought that online education should be a part of educational system. For example in Japan, according to the research by Tokyo University, about ten thousand students retired from their......

Sign up to Safety campaign reveals that a million people use the services of the National Health Services (NHS) every 36 hours, with the majority being given care that is both safe and of high quality (NHS England, 2014). However, sometimes mistakes occur and patients are harmed as a result. Sign up to safe campaign shows that between 2011 and 2012, a total of 326 ’never events’ were reported to strategic health authorities (Glasper, 2014).This number can be reduced by addressing different safety measures, such as building a safety culture, leading and supporting staff, promote reporting, learning and sharing safety lessons and implementing solution to prevent harm (Glasper, 2014). Building Safety Culture An important component of a successful strategy to address these kinds of safety problems is the encouragement of personnel to be more forthcoming in reporting and disclosing errors, actual harm, and fear of being bullied. This instance will apply to all staff members, and everyone involved in caring for patient will know that their voices will be heard. For instance, where the leadership is concerned by being proactive, gaining input from the staffs about the improvements needed and addressing them with efficiency and urgency.

Online predators are the new way for individuals to plan, fantasize, and full fill their needs. Just telling your child to not talk to strangers will not cut it in today’s internet world. Protecting children online takes planning, coaching and internet rules setup to hopefully provide that barrier. Anybody can be anybody behind a computer.

We have all checked those websites to find out and to see if we have a sex offender living near our homes. How many people have actually checked out the websites children are visiting? The children today are more technological then their parents and the parents need to be aware of the dangers that lurk behind every computer. The most common means by which sexual predators contact children over the Internet is through chat rooms, instant messages and email. In fact, 89% of sexual solicitations were made in either chat rooms or instant messages and 1 in 5 youth (ages 10-17 years) has been sexually solicited online (JAMA, 2001). Considering that 25% of kids online participate in real time chat and 13 million use instant messaging, the risks of such children, either knowingly or unknowingly, interacting with...

Safety: School Aged Children & Adolescent

...SAFETY – School Age Children & Adolescents Accidents are a leading cause of death in this age group of 6-12 years. Impulsiveness, poor judgment, curiosity and incomplete control over motor coordination are some of the factors that increase the school-age child’s risk of accidents. Water safety training is highly advised at this age Television and video games often exerts a powerful influence on a child’s development. One concern about this media today is the increased amount of violence it portrays. Many believe that a good deal of available television and gaming content offers the child a potent model for aggressive behavior. Anticipatory guidance would suggest helping parents reduce the negative influence of television and video games Limit the amount of time children watch or play Screen programs for content and age appropriateness Watch programs with children and discuss the content Preventing school violence is another critical issue these days.
