In early December 2018, there was strange confusion in social media, and in particular many conservative media outlets, about "hockey pucks" being given to students and faculty at a "Michigan" university to "throw at shooters". Descriptions suggested images of students and faculty roaming the hallways like Marines, to attack bad guys with hockey pucks. The shocking secret of the whole affair was the number printed on these pucks, which almost no Fox media outlet ever actually explained, even though some were using a picture of the special puck they found in one of my own twitter posts. Printed in bold large font, it says "#33395 AUFD". What does this educational tool refer too?

Equifax Data Breach. ONE year ago today. What you can do to keep damage to your identify minimized.

Don't Panic

WHAT TO DO


The #Equifax Data Breach.
Over 140 MILLION persons living in the United States had Equifax loose all their private financial data, including addresses and social security numbers and financial account information.

If you got a notice that you were included in the data loss, then you should visit the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) website to guide you. (Lets not just call it data breach, it was a LOSS of our data.)

Check it out before the current White House does any more work to strip the consumer protection functions of the FTC and other departments. Its still there from 2017, last year. 

Go to the FTC's guide on how to find out if your credit report information was lost by Equifax and what steps you can do to protect yourself. Here is the link, just click:

CRISPR Treatment for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in Dogs.

CRISPR Treatment for Duchene Muscular Dystrophy in Dogs.
Delivering DNA editing biochemistry into muscle cells is improving and is now helping Dogs that have the same genetic diseases as humans. CRISPR is one such technology.

This is how animal research helps all animal medicine, "one medicine", not just human medicine.
This was appropriate news for the labor day weekend. Thinking about Jerry Lewis.

Live Sept 1, 2018 from Washington DC.

President Bush and Obama will speak.

A great man. An American hero. President Trump will forever be worthless in my opinion because he insulted this great man in sich a vile manner while he himself is a liar and conman.

Get Pyeong Chang Winter Games Information with this Free Android App: World Sports Navigator


World Sports Navigator is an App I have produced to support easy access to sports and sports events information. It began as a small App just for my own android phone so I could follow the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. I have most recently updated it for the Winter Games in Pyeong Chang, the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and t the App is actually useful all year long. It no longer just focuses on Olympic sports but also covers amateur sports, Special Olympics, Paralympics, soccer, hockey, and other pro -ports too.
If you want to have the Pyeong Chang Winter Games information websites at your finger tips in one tiny App (does not use a lot of memory), then feel free to use this App.
World Sports Navigator is free, it is ad-free, and it is my way to promote human interactions through sports. Much better than conflict and war I think. You can get World Sports Navigator in Google Play and also in the Amazon App Store for your Kindle, Kindle Fires.
Get the App here: at Google Play
