Day 3 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness for PTSD

Day 3

Just got back from the gym so energy level a bit low especially when I had to do this twice because the first time the wrong button got pushed  and was not filming, LOL not.

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the  recognition  and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides  in Australia since 1999.

For most of us,  we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.

Today I nominate my friend Bron Hay to take the challenge.

No pressure . iI you can great,  if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try and get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!

This a great way to have fun and let these courageous  Men and Women who put their life on the line know that someone is thinking about them.

The New Predators – Today’s Scams

There is a few of these so will post one a day so it is not information overload

 

Tech Support.

 

phonescam  This is considered the biggest consumer scam in the U.S. at the moment.

             According to Microsoft in 2015 an estimated 3.3 million people many of them seniors were victimized by tech support cons. A cost of $1.5 billion to put it figuratively $454 per 10 seconds. 

Here is how it happens:- You get an unsolicited call from someone who claims to work for Microsoft, or windows, tech support. 

They tell you that viruses have been detected on your computer. They continue to tell you that you need to immediately call up a certain website and follow its instructions. A dummy screen may appear that shows viruses being detected and eliminated but in reality malware is being installed that allows the scammer to steal your usernames and passwords, hold your data for ransom or even use the webcam to spy on you.

Remedy – Hang up the phone. “Neither Microsoft or our partners make unsolicited phone calls” says Courtney Gregoire, senior attorney at the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit. 

Do not click any links in unsolicited emails from “Microsoft” or in pop-up ads promising to speed up your computer. 

Make sure you download Windows 10 or the latest OS X says “William Woodworth from  Best Buys Geek Squad. “Each update is free and has lots of new security built in”

A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store. As he waited, he was approached
by a man who asked, “Son, can you tell me where the Post Office is?”

The little boy replied, “Sure! Just go straight down this street a coupla blocks and turn to your right.”

The man thanked the boy kindly and said, “I’m the new pastor in town.
I’d like for you to come to church on Sunday.

I’ll show you how to get to Heaven.”

The little boy replied with a chuckle.

“You’re bullshitting Me … You don’t even know the way to the Post Office
