Federal Air Marshals scheduled to brief Congressional Leaders and Oversight Committees on Dangerous Aviation Conditions

Federal Air Marshals are blowing the whistle on the new TSA seating arrangements that are setting our aviation security up for failure.”

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES , January 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Federal Air Marshals are scheduled to brief Congress on their new dangerous TSA seating assignments, ongoing serious health issues effecting Federal Air Marshals (FAMs), and ineffective management within the agency. The Air Marshal National Council (AMNC) believes TSA is clearly violating 49 USC 44917: Deployment of Federal Air Marshals.

The Air Marshal National Council will be providing multi-layered solutions in the Congressional briefing, to include reassignment from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) a regulatory agency, back to their original law enforcement component, The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS ICE). In 2005, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff conducted a second-stage review of DHS' organization and ordered the FAMS to be moved from ICE and back to the TSA. The move to TSA was effective October 1, 2005. Since 2005, the TSA has struggled to come up with an effective way to manage the workforce and deploy air marshals on the highest risk flights. Federal Air Marshals, the leading experts in aviation security, are adamant national security would be enhanced with a reassignment to DHS ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). HSI's successes in combating terrorism and enhancing national security have resonated throughout the global law enforcement community, private industry and general public.

Foreign Countries with Air Marshal Programs are assigned within a law enforcement component. Canada for example has their Air Marshal program as an elite unit of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The benefits to this are immeasurable. Under this model, Canada has an immediate surge capacity, if a threat pops up that requires the force to significantly and quickly increase, Canada can simply pull from the highly trained law enforcement agents outside of the Air Marshal unit.

The Air Marshal National Council, the exclusive voice of flying Federal Air Marshals (FAMS) is headed to Washington with current flying Federal Air Marshals. Federal Air Marshals are blowing the whistle on the new seating arrangements that are setting our aviation security up for failure. The White House has also been briefed on this very dangerous seating issue. Hazardous conditions as well as the continued serious health effects we are seeing in Federal Air Marshals from years of flying an unsustainable flight schedule must be addressed. Last year was a particularly grim year for the Federal Air Marshal Service with the number of heart related debilitating issues seeing a huge spike.

Federal Air Marshals will also be providing the relevant committees with first hand accounts of gross mismanagement in the agency, specifically dealing with the current Concept of Operations.

Our recent article featured in The Hill has resonated with members of Congress and the public we serve.

Do You Need a Privacy Policy on Your Website? YES! HostedInCanada.com Answers this question & provides an Easy & Cost-Effective Option!

I have been with HostedinCanada for over 18 years now and they have always been easy to deal with and very attentive to my demands and needs. In the Internet business, you need someone you can trust..”

— Daryl Marsden

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, January 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A quick look at Google and Facebook conversations concerning their security breaches plus GDPR arriving and it is pretty easy to see online privacy is something at the front of people’s minds. If you are the owner of a website or business here in Canada, this makes your Website Privacy statement something you shouldn’t skip over. No worries, at HostedInCanada.com we would love to give you some Canadian thoughts on the subject, backed by experience, while we provide links that can help you create, update, or re-evaluate your privacy policy.

The obvious first question; Don’t people just ignore website privacy policies anyway?

Honestly, privacy policies aren’t something that attracts a ton of attention. In fact, a 2016 study from York University here in Canada revealed that 77% of people never even look at privacy policies. The same study showed that 98% of visitors said “Yes” to a Privacy Policy which included a clause pay with their eldest child for visiting the website. And no one even noticed!

So the facts agree, not many visitors to your website will read your Privacy Policy. But that isn’t why you have one, as you’ll see below.

The Top Three Reasons Why You NEED a Privacy Policy on Your Site (Even if Few Read It!):

1. Boost Customer Trust: If your customers DO come up with a privacy concern they can quickly see it is an issue you have thought about and addressed. This builds trust in a proactive way, the way that matters most.

2. Cut Liability and Decrease Risk: Make no mistake by having a Privacy Policy published, most would agree, you have taken a big first step towards meeting the legal obligations surrounding the management of customer data. This can protect your customers as well as protect you should a customer decide they want to question your commitment to privacy.

3. It Builds Internal Privacy Awareness: By writing an effective privacy policy, you need to actively consider Privacy issues. This exercise will reveal organizational weaknesses you can address that you are likely to be very grateful for in the future.

PIPEDA: Canada’s Major Privacy Requirements

If you are a Canadian company or you collect information from Canadian visitors, then you need to understand PIPEDA: the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act of Canada.

PIPEDA explains what they consider personal information and delivers ten principles that every business that is active in Canada needs to address.

According to PIPEDA, there are two types of personal information you need to be concerned with:

Customer Information – General data and personal data including financial and address related.

Employee Information – SIN numbers, employment records, and applications & resumes.

PIPEDA talks about very important things if you collect this information like the need for consent before the collection of personal information and how you can use and dispose of this information. PIPEDA also includes audit and compliance procedures.

Importantly, for the subject of this article from your friends at Hostedin Canada, if you gather either of these two types of information, you need to develop a privacy policy and CLEARLY DISPLAY IT.

The good news is the Privacy Commissioner’s website has a guide that walks you through each of the ten principles and how to can handle them. There’s even an archive with examples for each. So as far as the red tape goes this is far from the worst a business has to address, thankfully.

BUT keep reading for a link to the EASIEST and best way to create a Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions and Cookie Policy for your website, your business as a whole, your Google Paid Ads, Facebook and other social media sites, so that YOU keep safe and your clients keep safe.

Some of PIPEDA’s ten principles worth spending some extra thought on.

Subscription and Spam

There’s no way around it – If you are collecting emails for a contact list in Canada, you are considered to be collecting personal information. This means Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) which dictates how to gather, maintain and use this type of information applies. This legislation has rules you need to follow regarding consent to join your email list, how you need to provide ways to unsubscribe easily, your data protection and explicit use provisions. Explore their Fast Facts page to learn more and make sure you are doing what you need to be doing to make sure your email marketing is on point.

Cookies

Cookies track visitor website activity, kind of like an identification card. Cookies can add a great deal to users' website experience through increased functionality, but they also cause user privacy concerns since they do often track personal information. Due to the different types of cookies and the diversity of information they can collect, the Canadian Government doesn’t need you to moderate user’s cookies for them. Instead, this is the website visitor's responsibility to manage their cookie preferences, according to the Canadian regulations. More details can be found on web tracking with cookies on the website of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.

The FULL LIST: https://www.priv.gc.ca/en/privacy-topics/privacy-laws-in-canada/the-personal-information-protection-and-electronic-documents-act-pipeda/p_principle/

Making Your Own Privacy Policy

Now that you understand the importance of a Privacy Policy, it is probably time to make your own that makes sure you’re compliant with PIPEDA.

HostedInCanada.com recommends developing a privacy policy and internal procedures for your website in Canada by reviewing the contents of the PIPEDA compliance help page for businesses, provided by the Privacy Commissioner, as an easy to follow guide.

Of course, laws and regulations in Canada are dynamic and continue to evolve. This means writing your own privacy policy isn’t the end of the story. You should make sure to review it in light of the most recent guidelines at least once a year.

Finally…

Other than the legal obligations of a website owner, privacy is important as someone who engages in online communities in a positive way. Following the rules in this area makes things safer for everyone involved – even if you are never dragged into a legal situation.

Building a privacy policy lets you demonstrate your online business principles, your values and your integrity.

Finally here is the best website, in our opinion, to build a Canadian based Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions and we recommend a Cookie policy as well if you have Google Analytics setup or any script collecting data:

CREATE YOUR OWN PRIVACY POLICY AGREEMENT:
https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=868557&u=157845&m=65338&urllink=&afftrack=

Mental Health Watchdog Fights Involuntary Psychiatric Examination of Kids in Florida

There were more than 36,000 involuntary psychiatric examinations on children, some as young as 2-5 years old.

The mental health law currently allows for individuals of all ages, including children, to be taken into custody and sent for an involuntary psychiatric examination.

CCHR has helped secure the safe release of over 1,200 men, women and children who were being unjustly held under the Baker Act.,

Our Psychiatric Abuse Hotline receives too many calls from the families of victims who never met the criteria for a Baker Act yet are being held against their will in a psychiatric ward.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the Baker Act Reporting Center, there were over 200,000 involuntary psychiatric examinations initiated in 2018 more than doubling over the past 17 years. Even more alarming is that more than 36,000 of these initiations were on children, some as young as 2-5 years old and in the vast majority of cases the parent was never brought into the process. [1]

The mental health law in Florida, commonly known as the Baker Act, allows for men, women and children to be sent against their will for involuntary examination at psychiatric wards known as Baker Act Receiving Facilities and held for up to 72 hours during which time, those being held may be drugged without their consent if an emergency treatment order is issued. [2]

This dramatic increase in indicative of abuse says the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog that investigates and exposes human rights violations in the mental health industry.

“Our Psychiatric Abuse Hotline receives too many calls from the families of victims who never met the criteria for a Baker Act yet are being held against their will in a psychiatric ward,” said Diane Stein, President of the Florida chapter of CCHR.

In order to help address violations of human and civil rights under the mental health law, CCHR mans this Psychiatric Abuse Hotline so that individuals who need assistance have someone they can call and have logged thousands of calls over the past few years. During this same time period, CCHR has helped to secure the safe release of more than 1,200 people being held illegally in psychiatric wards and almost half of those helped were children. All assistance provided is free of charge and those manning the Hotline are trained and certified on the mental health law through the Department of Children and Families.

In addition to the Hotline, CCHR provides numerous other public services including the documentation of mental health abuses and the filing of complaints on behalf of the victims with the applicable agencies and officials. Since February of 2015, CCHR has filed over 1,000 complaints concerning abuse within the Florida mental health system resulting in numerous investigations and sanctions of the psychiatrists and facilities involved.

“Too often people, who seek help from psychiatrists, are the victims of human rights abuses. CCHR works to expose this abuse and to help those who have been unjustly incarcerated. Our intention is to change the involuntary commitment process,” said Diane Stein.

CCHR encourages anyone who is aware of abuse within the field of mental health to fill out and abuse report form on their website by clicking here to REPORT PSYCHIATRIC ABUSE.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information please visit www.cchrflorida.org.

Sal Liccardo's new book details San Jose blind woman's struggle against Johnson & Johnson

Sal Liccardo, author of Her Right To Know

Her Right To Know, available now at Amazon

Sal, with Michelle and Dennis Ahearn, will be at 1960 The Alameda | San Jose, CA 95126

SAL LICCARDO’S NEW BOOK DETAILS SAN JOSE COUPLE’S STRUGGLE AGAINST PHARMACEUTICAL GIANT SO WOMEN COULD BE INFORMED ABOUT POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS FROM “THE PILL”

Every human being has the right to know of any potential serious harm to their body from any product they consume whether prescription drugs, medical devices, or food for the table.”

— Sal Liccardo

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — 50 years ago, one of the most admired companies in America was selling a product that was used enthusiastically and life-changing for millions of women- even though it knew the product posed a significant danger of blood clots, blindness and even death for up to 20% of its users.

The company was Johnson & Johnson and the product was Ortho-Novum, one of the most popular birth control pills in the United States in the 1960s. A new book, Her Right to Know, by retired San Jose attorney Sal Liccardo tells the story of his clients Dennis and Michelle Ahearn, who went blind at age 30 after taking Ortho-Novum, and their seven-year lawsuit to get Johnson & Johnson to begin warning women that potentially dangerous blood clots were a possible side effect of taking “The Pill.”

“Because of Michelle and Dennis Ahearn’s courage and persistence, pharmaceutical companies were no longer able to keep women in the dark about the possible side effects of 'The Pill'." said Liccardo. “Every human being has the right to know of any potential serious harm to their body from any product they consume whether prescription drugs, medical devices, or food for the table. No industry has the right to take that decision away from us, particularly Big Pharma.”

Michelle Ahearn was a mother of three who had been taking Ortho-Novum for two years when in February 1969, she came down with a headache that quickly progressed to massive swelling of her head and eyes which led to her being hospitalized in the ICU at San Jose’s O’Connor Hospital for more than two weeks. When she was finally released she had permanently lost her sight.

“We were fighting a giant corporation, and they threw out everything they had to beat us. It was a David and Goliath story,” said Ahearn.

In Her Right To Know, Liccardo, the father of San Jose’s mayor, tells how his small law firm, at times just him, a fellow lawyer, and one assistant, took on one of the biggest and most admired companies in America.

Her Right to Know is available now from Amazon.

The Texas US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate now offers a free service for a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Texas they call the list.

New Hampshire US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate Recommends the Lawyers at KVO to Help a Navy Veteran with Lung Cancer in New Hampshire Who Also Had Heavy Exposure to Asbestos-Get Compensated

The New Hampshire US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate suggests the lawyers at the law firm of KVO to assist a Navy Veteran or person with Asbestos lung cancer in New Hampshire with compensation.”

— New Hampshire US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

MANCHESTER , NEW HAMPSHIRE, USA, January 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Hampshire US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate now recommends the amazing lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO to assist a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer in New Hampshire with compensation if while in the service or at work the person had significant exposure to asbestos. As they would like to discuss at 800-714-0303 the typical Navy Veteran or person the Advocate is trying to help is over 60 years old and has lung cancer-and again-they had significant exposure to asbestos. Most people with lung cancer who also had significant exposure to asbestos do not realize the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too.

The reason the New Hampshire US Navy Veteran Lung Cancer Advocate has endorsed the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO is because they are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation for people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma and they work overtime for their clients. For direct access to the lawyers at Karst von Oiste please call 800-714-0303. www.karstvonoiste.com/

According to the New Hampshire US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "We offer a Navy Veteran or person with asbestos exposure lung cancer in New Hampshire a free service that helps them identify how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. We call this free service the list and it is this vital information that becomes the basis for an asbestos exposure lung cancer compensation claim as we would be happy to discuss at 800-714-0303." https://NewHampshire.USNavyLungCancer.Com

The New Hampshire US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Manchester, Nashua, Concord, Dover, Rochester, Keene, Derry, Portsmouth or anywhere in New Hampshire. https://NewHampshire.USNavyLungCancer.Com

High risk occupations for asbestos exposure in New Hampshire include the US Navy, shipyard workers, manufacturing workers, electricians, welders, plumbers, machinists, mechanics, power plant workers, paper mill workers, auto/truck brake technicians and construction workers. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact." https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware.

However, asbestos exposure lung cancer can happen in any state including California, New York, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Washington, Oregon or Alaska. www.karstvonoiste.com/

Mortgage Expert Witness

Joffrey G. Long

Joffrey Long Remembers David Epstein, Attorney

Attorney David Epstein was recognized for his commitment to the private money (hard money) lending industry.”

— Joffrey Long

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Private Money (Hard Money) Lending Community mourns the loss of Attorney David Epstein, who passed away last month on December 24. Epstein was recognized for many years in representing originators, lenders, loan servicers and borrowers in institutional lending. In recent years, he became an expert in hard money (private money) lending, representing makers, arrangers, investors, borrowers, and other parties in hard money lending.

Epstein, a graduate of the UCLA School of Law, became active in the California Mortgage Association, (CMA) the statewide trade association for professionals in origination, servicing, and investment in private money loans. CMA provides comprehensive education programs in practices, forms and documents, escrow and title insurance procedures, loan servicing, and the raising of capital from investors through mortgage funds, fractionalized trust deeds and through other offerings for trust deed investments.

Aside from being a well-respected attorney in our industry, David was known for his high professional standards, his ethics, and for being a warm and caring person.

We will miss David and we'll remember his friendship and dedication to his profession.
