We locked eyes. Then I just blurted it out.  “Guess what? You can buy scented bowling balls! They have cherry, vanilla, even blueberry…”  I exhaled.  “Can you believe it?!?!?”Lackeys Sara (Gonzogrrl) and Nicole (Louie Bliss) at the reception deskThen… nothing, not a word.What followed was an eerie combination of  blank stares, awkward blinking and a long unfilled void of silence.  The sun rose. The sun set.  Trees outside changed colors.  The seasons marched on.Then Sara finally spoke.  “Oh yeah, look at this.”HQ CacheShe walked over to the treasure chest cache inside HQ.  She reached into the cache and pulled out a knitted hat. But no, this was no normal mocha colored knitted hat.  A full beard and mustache was also knitted onto the hat.CaityPa modeling her creationCaityPa knitted and placed, what will now be referred to as “The-Best-Lumberjack-Knitted-Cap-Swag-Ever,” in the cache just last week.  It’s a powerful fashion statement, modeled at the top of this post by Lackey Mike (SanNiccolo14).But it begs the question, what’s the best swag you’ve ever encountered?  Any other knitted hat/bread combos out there?It’ll be tough to dethrone The-Best-Lumberjack-Knitted-Cap-SWAG-Ever, but give it a go.  Post the story of your best SWAG find ever in the comments section below.P.S. – This is also a cautionary tale.  We can learn something here.  You never know where the conversation will take you, when you start by talking about blueberry-scented bowling balls.  Beware.Share with your Friends:Morelast_img read more

first_img20Dec Michigan Legislature approves Rep. Bellino’s plan to make schools safer Rep. Joe Bellino’s plan to help improve school safety across Michigan won final legislative approval today in the state House, and will soon be considered by the governor.Bellino’s bill will help develop consistent and uniform training for law enforcement personnel related to school safety incidents. It’s part of a package establishing a state commission to help review and upgrade building security, create reporting procedures for incidents in schools, and make the OK2SAY school safety program permanent.“Nothing we do is more important than taking steps to keep our kids safe,” said Bellino, of Monroe. “The bottom line: This plan we’re putting in place creates a framework to make our schools more secure than they are today. It’s a continuous process, and it requires a team approach from everyone in our communities all across the state.”Other pieces of the bipartisan plan include:Establishing a liaison within each school district to report to and work with the state – a necessary step to make sure improved safety practices reach every corner of Michigan and ensure local perspectives are included in the process. Emergency operations plans will be adopted for each school building.Requiring schools to submit incident reports to Michigan State Police. The reports will provide state school safety officials with examples of how incidents and were handled to develop best practices for other Michigan schools to follow.Requiring schools to consult with local law enforcement officials prior to major renovations or new construction projects, with the goal of including building safety features.Removing the expiration date for the OK2SAY program, which allows the confidential reporting of tips on potentially harmful or criminal activity directed at students, school employees or school buildings.The school safety package includes House Bills 5828-29 and 5850-52, along with Senate Bills 882, 982-83 and 990-91.

19 arrested in US for credit card, identity theft ring Citation: 36 indicted in global cybercrime ring that stole $530M (2018, February 7) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-02-indicted-global-cybercrime-stole-530m.html © 2018 The Associated Press.

Thirty-six people were indicted in connection with an international identity theft ring known as a “one-stop shop for cybercriminals” that sold stolen credit card information on the dark web, leading to losses of more than $530 million, U.S. prosecutors said Wednesday. The Infraud Organization—founded in 2010 and operated under the slogan “In Fraud We Trust”—used an online forum to buy and sell stolen credit card and bank account numbers, Social Security numbers and other personal information, the U.S. Justice Department said.Investigators believe the group’s nearly 11,000 members targeted more than 4.3 million credit cards, debit cards and bank accounts worldwide, Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Rybicki said.Most of the members of Infraud never met in person and only knew one another through their online usernames, he said. The organization’s goal was to become the premier site to purchase retail items with stolen or counterfeit credit card information, prosecutors said.The group’s hierarchy included administrators who managed the operation and membership, forum moderators and vendors who sold illicit products and services to members. Members of the group would then use the forum on the dark web—part of the internet often used for illegal activity—to gather information and facilitate the sale of the stolen data, officials said.The indictment unsealed Wednesday in Nevada marks the first time the Justice Department has arrested anyone in connection with Infraud, which Rybecki called one of the largest international cybercrime rings.”This case reflects the alarming and increasing threat posed by cybercrime,” Rybicki said. “The Department of Justice refuses to allow cybercriminals to hide behind the anonymity of the web while stealing personally identifying information, emptying bank accounts, and wreaking havoc on our nation’s digital infrastructure and financial system.”Thirteen people were taken into custody across the globe, including in California, New York and Alabama. Suspects arrested in France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, Kosovo and Serbia were awaiting extradition. Explore further read more
