“This integration accelerates time-to-protection in the cloud by aggregating dynamic security data rulesets to block zero-day threats through a few clicks,” said Valtix co-founder and CTO Vijay Chander. “The new data sharing features once again prove how Valtix’s cloud-native approach to security enables the business agility provided by the cloud.”

The enhanced features added in Valtix Network Security Service v2.0 release include:

– Valtix Security Data Lake makes visible cloud asset vulnerability information across clouds
– Layer-7 DoS controls to mitigate DoS attacks against Web and API services
– Event-based workflows to quickly deploy virtual patching to remediate unprotected hosts in just a few clicks

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges Announces New Online Resource for Civil Protection Orders

We recognize that an effective civil protection order system relies upon the interplay and interdependence of each profession’s work; judges, law enforcement, prosecutors, civil attorneys, and others.”

Six Year Olds Ripped from Schools, Involuntarily Committed and Forcibly Drugged

child-drugging

Education is under attack from “mental health” agendas, with children as young as 6 removed from classrooms and incarcerated, fueling the 6.7 million American 0-17 year olds on psychotropic drugs and billions of dollars in drug sales.

CCHR

Citizens Commission on Human Rights International

Education is under attack from mental health agendas with kids as young as 6 removed from school and incarcerated, fueling the 6.7M kids on psychotropic drugs.

States need to seriously look at the harm being committed in the name of mental health care and the detrimental effects on both children and schools.”

— CCHR International

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A 6-year-old girl was removed from a Florida school for being disruptive and committed to a behavioral health center for a psychiatric evaluation without her parent’s knowledge. She was held for two days and injected with an antipsychotic. Citizens Commission on Human Rights International, a 50-year mental health watchdog group, warns that the U.S. education system and parental rights are being usurped with psychiatric and psychological practices. Schools, they assert, are used as feeder lines into a mental health system, which profits from it. CCHR was responding to an incident where Nadia, aged 6, was adjudicated through a licensed counselor to be a candidate for committal under Florida’s involuntary commitment law, The Baker Act.

The special needs child reportedly threw some chairs in a tantrum.[1] But according to the Atlanta Black Star, a police body camera video, the girl behaved calmly as she was escorted from school by police. At one point, she asked officers if she was going to jail and was assured, no. The officer seemed skeptical of the school’s reason for calling 911. “She’s been actually very pleasant,” she noted. “I think it’s more of them not wanting to deal with it,” said another officer.[2]

Martina Falk, Nadia’s mother, was alerted only after her daughter was committed and said the nearly two-day mandatory stay at the psychiatric facility did more harm than good.[3]

It’s a common practice. Between July 2017 and June 2018, there were 36,078 involuntary examinations initiated under the Baker Act for individuals under the age of 18 in Florida.[4]

Earlier, police picked up 6-year-old Nicholas, who’d thrown a tantrum at school, and deposited him at River Point Behavioral Health in Florida. There, Nicholas was allegedly given a bloody nose by another child and was locked in a “seclusion” room at 3 a.m. Nicholas was released only after a lawyer intervened.[5]

Schools are bowing to psychiatric and psychological “advice” that mental health screening, referrals for committal and institutionalization are a way of protecting students. CCHR advises heeding the warning from the president of the History of Education Society, who in 1982, said, “Few intellectual and social movements of this century have had so deep and pervasive an influence on the theory and practice of American education as the mental hygiene movement.” It’s only gotten worse.

In 2003, the New Freedom Commission on Mental Health recommended that all American schoolchildren be screened for “mental illness,” claiming—without proof—that “early detection, assessment, and links with treatment” could “prevent mental health problems from worsening.”[6] But it hasn’t. Today, schools are expected to invoke state laws to have their students “treated” and involuntarily committed. That adds to the kids on psychiatric drugs crisis we now see, CCHR says.

IQVia’s Total Patient Tracker Database reports that there are 6,726,189 0-17 year olds on psychotropic drugs in 2019, of which 530,169 were aged 0-5.[7]

The drugs can cause aggressive, suicidal and disruptive behavior leading to children being incarcerated, where they are at risk of being further drugged and sexually abused. For example, last December, a Federal lawsuit was filed by the Cook County public guardian alleging that children as young as 7 were sexually abused, while others were injected with sedatives to control them and physically attacked at a Chicago private psychiatric hospital.[8]

February 17 marked 10 years since 11-year-old Ariana from Detroit, Michigan was prescribed an antipsychotic that caused debilitating effects. In coordination with a local doctor, her mother, Maryanne, weaned her off the drug. Child Protective Services, accompanied by police, swooped in on her home—without a proper warrant or order from a judge—to remove Ariana to incarcerate and forcibly drug her. International news covered Maryanne’s heroic 10-hour standoff with Detroit police, a S.W.A.T. team and a military tank, when she refused to hand over her child to be drugged. Eventually, Ariana was taken to a psychiatric hospital and forced back onto antipsychotics—drugged so heavily that she was drooling when attorney Allison Folmar arrived with a court order to cease the drug. Maryanne was jailed following the standoff but then released and all child neglect charges—because she chose not to drug Ariana—were dismissed.[9] Sadly, in 2017, the mom, who fought so courageously for her daughter’s life, died after suffering a brain aneurism.[10]

CCHR obtained 2019 drug statistics from IQVia. Of those aged 0-17, 3,396,066 were on “ADHD” drugs; 2,148,971 on antidepressants, despite the potential to induce suicidal behavior in this age group; 1,022,918 on antipsychotics, 1,303,095 on anti-anxiety drugs; 877,083 were taking mood stabilizers and 756,652 were on newer generation psychotherapeutics.[11]

Age Breakdown:
0-1 Years 106,678
2-3 Years 184,256
4-5 Years 263,363
6-12 Years 2,963,924
13-17 Years 3,335,146

States need to seriously look at the harm being committed in the name of mental health care and the detrimental effects on both children and schools.

CCHR is the mental health watchdog responsible for more than 180 laws that now protect patients from damaging practices. Donate to support its work here.

Robert Bouton McDougal of Orange County Discusses Method of Learning English Faster

Robert McDougal Orange County

ORANGE COUNTY, CA, UNITED STATES, February 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — English has often been called one of the most fun languages to learn, but it can often be one of the most challenging. This is true especially for non-English speakers that want to learn the language. In this article, Robert Bouton McDougal discusses some methods for learning ESL (English as a Second Language) fast.

The key, Robert McDougal of Orange County says, is to commit time to become totally immersed in the language. He says being around other native speakers will help you learn the language faster than going to ESL classes alone.
Some of the ways you can be around people and hear the English language being spoken in its native form are as follows:

Read everything you can, Robert McDougal of Orange County says. This includes books, magazines, online articles, blog posts, and news clips. When you read the written language as opposed to simply hearing it, you’re training your brain to associate the written word with the spoken term. This helps to pick the language up much faster than simply by listening to it.

Next, Robert McDougal of Orange County says listen to everything you can. Robert Bouton McDougal says by listening to as much as you can, you’ll be exposed to many more types of dialects and accents as well as more terminology than you’ll have in ESL class alone. Some of places to listen to native speakers include television, radio, YouTube videos, tutorials, movies, and interviews.

If you listen to native English speakers online, try to the “closed caption” turned on, so you can get the term on the screen along with the spoken word. Closed caption can be helpful, he adds, but be aware there are plenty of mistakes with closed captioning that might be confusing at times. One method that Robert McDougal of Orange County teaches his advanced students is that when you’re listening to a recording of native speakers, try imagining the written text appearing along with the spoken word, in a sort of imaginary closed-caption context. Once you master this, Robert McDougal adds, the language barrier will seem to disappear, allowing for better comprehension and conversation skills.

A fun shortcut that some learners take is by having a native-speaking buddy that is willing to talk with you. Encourage your friend to talk only in the English language and to use visuals if necessary, to get the message across. Many times, a buddy will be able to correct any mispronunciations or misinterpretations as you make them, making your education much richer than without them.

Another way to learning ESL faster is to write down new terms as you learn them. Robert McDougal of Orange County says if you’re just starting out, writing down new terms will help reinforce them in your mind as you learn them. If you don’t know the meaning of the term, that’s okay – you can always ask someone later.

Robert McDougal of Orange County also recommends new learners recording themselves in conversation when just beginning to learn English. Then, after you’ve had at least six months of tutorials and practice, record yourself again. This will boost even the slowest learner since you’ll be able to see how much you’ve learned in a short amount of time. “There’s nothing like motivation to keep us going, Robert McDougal of Orange County says.

Robert Bouton McDougal is a seasoned educator and language learning expert in Orange County, CA. With a bachelor’s degree and a master's degree in English Language Learning, TESOL certification, and a robust teaching history across the U.S. and Central America, Robert McDougal of Orange County has years of experience helping non-native English speakers learn to speak English. Robert Bouton McDougal approaches every classroom and tutoring challenge with optimism and perseverance. If you are seeking a private English tutor for yourself or a loved one, Robert McDougal is a trained professional with the combined years of education and experience to put you on the fast track to fluency.

History of French Foreign Legion, Part I

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — What do you know about the French Foreign Legion? Most folks are familiar with their flat-topped cap, the kepi, and their presence in northern Africa in the first few decades of the 20th Century. The Legion has a thrilling history, however, and so we’ve decided to share it with you in a series of posts. Read on to learn about how the Legion was formed and its development over the following century.

1831: The French Foreign Legion is Born

We have King Louis-Philippe to thank for the French Foreign Legion, for it was he who founded the elite military corps — on March 9, 1831. It was primarily intended to support the conquest of Algeria but served a secondary purpose of putting to good use the plentitude of refugees and unemployed soldiers in France at the time.

Despite the best intentions of the Legion’s leaders, this branch of the French Army experienced some growing pains early on. Desertion, difficulties enforcing military discipline, and less-than-qualified officers were just a few of the problems that the Legion struggled through in the coming decades. Nevertheless, it grew to five battalions by the early 1840s, at which time it was split into the 1st and 2nd Foreign Regiments.

1850s-1860s: A Rocky Adolescence Coalesces Into a Formidable Force

During the mid-19th Century, the French Foreign Legion found itself embroiled in a variety of battles and other conflicts, including sieges of Zaatcha and Sevastopol, the Battle of Magenta, and France’s intervention in Mexico. At this time, the Legion still hadn’t yet made a particularly reputable name for itself, comprising as it did a ragtag corps of refugees, erstwhile criminals, outlaws, misfits, and other unlikely candidates for military service. But it was making strides toward respectability, and definitely showed itself, particularly in Mexico, to be a fighting force to be reckoned with.

Early 1900s: A Golden Age for the Legion

When it comes to imperialism, Britain is often the first nation to spring to mind, but the French Foreign Legion’s most memorable era came about because of that country’s imperial reach into Morocco and northern Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, and Indochina. It is this period that gave Hollywood its indelible image of the Legionnaire in his kepi, its khaki fabric protecting him only nominally from the desert sun.

One reason the Legion so captivated moviegoers and novel readers? The anonymat, or the requirement that would-be Legionnaires must enlist under an assumed name. This allowed the members not only to gain a fresh start in life, but to invent for themselves romantic, even tragic backstories with which to entertain and intrigue their compatriots as well as the public.

Between 1871 and 1914, the corps swelled to around 10,000 members. Spread out across the globe, from southeastern Algeria to the jungles of Vietnam, Legionnaires participated in campaigns that saw them sometimes mounted on mules, other times taking the reins from the French Navy. Around the turn of the century, they assisted in the historic conquest and pacification of Madagascar.

In our next installment of the fascinating history of the French Foreign Legion, we’ll take a look at its role in World Wars I and II, the French Indochina War, and in conflicts that have taken place in recent memory, including the Persian Gulf War.

Aging Baby Boomers Set To Transform Senior Living
Seniors Expected To Outnumber Those 13 And Younger In 2025

St. Louis Park, MN: Within the next 10 years, the entire Baby Boomer population is set to be 65 or older. This demographic shift is going to impact many aspects of life and business, including the senior living industry. Senior living community, TowerLight Senior Living recently shared their insight on some of the commonly expected trends to occur when this shift takes place.

Care concerns: Large numbers of seniors may be living with major disabilities or cognitive issues, meaning more costs, financially and in terms of time, that communities are going to need to prepare for.

Demand in the workforce: There’s a combination of a growing need for health aides in home and community settings, but there is also trouble with low recruitment and It’s anticipated that 7.8 million workers will be needed by 2026.

Infrastructure changes: Many experts are calling for major investments in population centers to create an environment more friendly to aging people. These include more accessible public transportation, affordable housing, and intergenerational programs (All things Towerlight provides) to help minimize isolation. In a community setting, adding technology to help with automation, communication, and protection is important across the board.

Changing attitudes about aging. Creating less negativity about aging is key for powering a lot of these programs..

A representative of TowerLight Senior Living offered the following statement regarding these trends: “Managing the ever growing senior population is going to be one of the great health challenges in the country moving forward. We plan to use a combination of new technology/methods as well as the top-quality service that we’ve always employed to provide proper care for our current and future residents.”
