Have you purchased a SmartWatch yet? If so, you may have discovered that in addition to keeping you connected with the Internet, your friends, your music, and business trends, it may also connect you to cyberbullying and stalking.
Every new piece of technology seems to be an avenue for trolls and stalkers to bother people. Wouldn’t it be fun if technology could sense the troll on the other end and blow up his equipment? Unfortunately, the is probably not going to happen. Plus, just as an incorrect Death Row execution happens now and then, some people would be picked up by sensors as “trolls” and unfairly punished.
A local Midwest mega-church pastor learned during his daughter’s high school senior year that she was pulling some pranks with her cellphone. He confiscated her phone, her car, and all of her technology for the last term of the year. I bet that hurt worse than a SmartWatch blowing up! Still, can we prevent trolls from owning technology in the future? Probably not. We just have to be prepared to handle stalkers and trolls.
An interesting film on this subject is UNFRIENDED, which I must say was better than I expected and easy to follow on six on-screen chat windows, Facebook pages, close-ups of emails and photo downloads with snarky captions, etc. All the while, terrified teenagers left at home alone are screaming and they cannot get he police to come over and help them.
It’s all a provocative look at how technology can be misused to hurt people, even to the extent of suicide and homicide. All this really does happen.
Jobs are going to increase in technologies, technologies will increase in type and number, and jobs will increase again. There will be a lot of work available at high pay rates. Whoever can devise a system or a gadget to stop dangerous online trolls will become a billionaire!

If you are over 50 years old in America, you may be able to benefit from some of the facts and advice in the following article:
Many Baby Boomers are finding that their age for receiving full benefits from Social Security Retirement has been raised to age 66 years. Some of the youngest Boomers are being pushed to wait until age 70.
A big surprise for the now-young Generation Z, though, is that Congress under the Reagan Administration passed actions that raise their age of retirement to 75.
In addition, today’s senior citizens who have no families are in a rough spot. Many are becoming homeless, with absolutely no place to go. While larger cities have a homeless services network, rural communities and many small towns usually have nothing of the sort. Some seniors are even stuck in abusive relationships, because otherwise, they would be homeless.
Employment services are senior citizens are growing, especially in places like Texas and Oregon, and adequate housing is the next step in helping our aging population to survive in America.
Today, you may need to move to a different state in order to earn a livable wage. Luckily, America has several states that are good for your move.

Good news these days is that Longaberger Baskets moved all their outsourced jobs from China back to Ohio. However, that does not tell us the history of the Easter Basket —
The basket was originated in Poland, and perhaps some other Eastern European nations nearby. As with the hand painted eggs seen around Eastern Europe, Russian, Ukraine, and Belarus, several iterations of the basket may exist. However, the Polish basket is well known.
On Easter Saturday, food that would be prepared for the meals on Easter Saturday and Sunday were placed into a basket – sometimes a basket made of bread – and taken to church by the children in the families. There, teh food was blessed for the holiday meals. It is a charming custom.

Texas is steadily maintaining a sizable pool of job advertisements, with help from the Aerospace and Healthcare Industries, along with Oil & Gas. That’s despite the blocking of the last leg of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Trucks are carrying the oil and tar sands down from Canada and that has led to an increase in trucking jobs to just about 1,000,000 truck drivers needed in America. That is good news! These are permanent jobs, whereas the Pipeline jobs created would have lasted only a matter of several months, except for a handful of supervisors and engineers.
Texas is good news for business and workers also, because there is no state income tax, but plenty of business incentives offered. On top of that is the network available for people ages 55 and older to use free-of-charge for finding jobs, housing, and other opportunities.
Increasing numbers of assaults in American emergency rooms against healthcare professionals and medical support staff have been recorded as initiated by various patients, their relatives, and significant others. Some of these attacks are assaults with deadly weapons. This may be one reason that we have a shortage of healthcare professionals working today.
During January 2015, such an assault – a shooting – happened in Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. It caused the death of a heart surgeon, Michael J. Davidson, MD. His patient, an older woman, died and her son came into the hospital a few months later with a loaded gun to seek vengeance. He is in the legal system at this time, but that does not bring back the deceased doctor, whose patients have been added to the already heavy workload of other professionals..
This is not an isolated incident. At St. John’s Hospital in Mapplewood, Minnesota a male patient pulled a metal bar out of the railing on the side of his bed, chased a nurse down a hallway, and beat her when she fell. In Central Ohio we are hearing about patients and visitors becoming angry and violent about wait times, questions about treatment, and other irritants. Families sometimes fight among themselves and the healthcare staff is injured when they attempt to intervene to keep the hospital an orderly place.
America seems always short of nurses and doctors. Before Obamacare took effect in 2013 – 2014, estimates were that the numbers of nurses, doctors, and support staff needed after Obamacare would decrease, but the opposite has been true.
To fill medical and other health care treatment and support positions across the United States, steps must be taken to ensure safety on the job. Everyone deserves a safe workplace.
