Noted Child Advocate Carla St. Rose-Rein Offers Top Warning Signs That A Predator Might Be Targeting A Child

(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 02, 2006 ) Columbia, MD – Noted child advocate, Carla St. Rose-Rein, author of LAND OF BROKEN TOYS, issued a warning list for parents of top signs that an adult predator might be targeting a child. St. Rose-Rein says that in the United States, child predators often integrate themselves with single mothers as a way to get close to children. She says that this often happens more in middle class families than would be expected.The top warning signs that St. Rose-Rein wants single parents to be aware of and that should cause alarm when they are dating are:1. The need to meet & interact with children2. Adults who refer to child as a "friend"3. Adults who give gifts and money to the child and tells the child to keep it a secret4. Inappropriate contact, playing, wrestling, tickling, of the child for long periods of time5. Phone calls or emails that are directed to the child6. Invitations to events where parents are not welcomed7. Unusual amounts of personal attention being directed to the child8. Wanting "alone time" with the child“In society today, the number of families led by a single mother is on the rise and child predators target these families,” said St. Rose-Rein. “Child predators seek out single mothers on dating websites and other places for singles as a way to get close to a child. That is why it is so important to check a person’s background out before bringing them home to meet your children.”St. Rose-Rein has documented her own years of abuse as a child in a single parent family, in her critically acclaimed book, LAND OF BROKEN TOYS. She points out that a troubling statistic with child abuse is that often a single mother will not believe her child when they report the abuse for fear of losing the person that they are dating. Sexual predators prey upon the vulnerabilities of single mothers, she says and have become sophisticated in their ways of targeting single mothers. “Sexual abuse of children is on the rise,” said St. Rose-Rein. “We must all work together to prevent it. By using common sense in introducing strangers to children and being on the lookout for warning signs, we can prevent it.”Additional information on LAND OF BROKEN TOYS and Carla St. Rose-Rein may be obtained at www.landofbrokentoys.com.###

Milwaukee museum to display portrait of pope made of condoms
29 Jun 2015 at 7:28pm
The Milwaukee Art Museum says it hopes a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made of condoms will ignite a conversation about the AIDS epidemic in Africa and the role art plays in public discussions, director Dan Keegan said on Monday. Milwaukee Catholic Archbishop Jerome Listecki called the museum callous and the portrait insulting in a blog last week on the Archdiocese website. About 17,000 colorful condoms were stitched together to fashion the portrait called "Eggs Benedict," which the museum plans to put on display in November, museum spokeswoman Vicki Scharfberg said.

For post-op complications, go back to the same hospital: study
29 Jun 2015 at 3:48pm
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) ? Patients who need to be rehospitalized within a month after major surgery have a lower risk of death over the next two months if they return to the hospital where they had the surgery rather than going to a different facility, according to a new study. ?Most clinicians or surgeons feel like if you take the time to do a big operation on someone, you know the area operated on, how the operations went, if there were complications,? lead author Dr. Benjamin S. Brooke of the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City told Reuters Health by phone.


U.S. top court rules against Obama administration over air pollution rule
29 Jun 2015 at 3:35pm

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ruled the Obama administration should have considered compliance cost when it decided to limit emissions of mercury and other hazardous air pollutants mainly from coal-fired power plants, a setback for the government that leaves the legal status of the regulation in limbo.     The court ruled in a 5-4 decision, with its five conservative justices in the majority, against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The rule stays in effect for the time being, with the case returning to an appeals court, which will decide whether or not it should be thrown out. "EPA is disappointed that the court did not uphold the rule, but this rule was issued more than three years ago, investments have been made and most plants are already well on their way to compliance," the agency said in a statement.


Factbox: Questions remain on U.S. mercury rule after high court ruling
29 Jun 2015 at 3:34pm
By Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday that the Environmental Protection Agency should have weighed the potential financial costs of compliance before imposing limits on emissions of mercury and other toxins from coal-fired power plants. The EPA and some academics said the outcome was not their worst case scenario. Richard Revesz, director of the Institute for Policy Integrity and dean emeritus of NYU Law School, said the court did not dispute the EPA argument that there are direct and ancillary benefits of the mercury restrictions, which the EPA said in projections after it issued its rule.

State restrictions for hepatitis C drug may go too far
29 Jun 2015 at 3:28pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - State-run insurance programs for the poor may be putting up illegal barriers that prevent people with hepatitis C from getting a new treatment, a new study suggests. "We had this idea that there were restrictions in place, but we didn't anticipate the breadth of these restrictions," said study author Robert Greenwald of the Center for Health Law and Policy at Harvard Law School in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. About 3.2 million people in the U.S. are infected with hepatitis C, but many do not feel ill or know they have the disease, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
