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.###

Peanut company officials stand trial in Georgia in deadly salmonella outbreak
28 Jul 2014 at 10:43am
By David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) - The federal trial of three former peanut company officials charged in connection with a salmonella outbreak that killed nine people and sickened hundreds more began on Monday with jury selection in Albany, Georgia. The contamination at the Peanut Corporation of America plant in Blakely, Georgia, led to one of the largest food recalls in U.S. history and forced the company into liquidation. Former owner Stewart Parnell, and his brother, Michael Parnell, a food broker who worked on behalf of the peanut company, were charged last year in a 76-count indictment asserting they created fake certificates showing their products were uncontaminated when laboratory results showed otherwise. The plant's quality control manager, Mary Wilkerson, and Stewart Parnell were also charged with obstruction of justice.

Slower U.S. healthcare cost rise extending life of Medicare fund: trustees
28 Jul 2014 at 10:29am
By Jason Lange and David Morgan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Slower growth in U.S. healthcare spending and expected savings from Obamacare are shoring up the funding outlook for the federal Medicare program that covers the hospital bills of the elderly, trustees of the program said on Monday. The program's trust fund for hospital care will run out of money in 2030, four years later than previously estimated, the trustees said in a report. When the fund runs dry, Washington would only be able to partially cover its obligations. The trustees said the fund would last longer than previously thought because "expenditures in 2013 were significantly lower than the previous estimate." They said changes to Medicare under President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul appeared to be creating "substantial savings." At the same time, trustees for the country's Social Security program repeated their warning that Washington would run out of the money needed to fully pay disability benefits by 2016.

Liberia closes borders as Ebola hits major west African cities
28 Jul 2014 at 9:35am

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has announced the closure of most of the Ebola-hit country's land borders after the deadly tropical virus spread to two of west Africa's largest cities. Liberia, along with neighbouring Guinea and Sierra Leone, is struggling to contain an epidemic that has infected some 1,200 people and left at least 670 dead across the region since the start of the year. Last week authorities in Sierra Leone's capital Freetown and Lagos in Nigeria announced their first cases, marking an alarming new front in the fight against a disease mainly confined to remote villages and rural outposts. "All borders of Liberia will be closed with the exception of major entry points," Sirleaf said in a statement late Sunday.

28 Jul 2014 at 9:17am

By Barbara Liston ORLANDO Fla. (Reuters) - Support for legalizing medical marijuana in Florida is holding steady at 88 percent despite weeks of vigorous campaigning by opponents ahead of a November referendum on the issue, a poll released on Monday showed. The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University, did not specifically ask about the ballot measure but indicated support was well beyond the 60 percent threshold needed for the constitutional amendment to become law. A Quinnipiac poll in May also found that 88 percent of voters backed legalizing marijuana for medical use, up from 82 percent in November 2013. The Florida Sheriffs Association launched its campaign against medical marijuana in April.

(Reuters) - Shares of AcelRx Pharmaceuticals Inc plunged almost 40 percent after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration rejected its pain treatment late on Friday. The rejection also reduces the lead the drug device, Zalviso, was likely to have over a rival from Medicines Company, which was submitted for approval in late June. Analysts, who were surprised by the decision, said the issues cited by the FDA were "rather mild" and expected Zalviso to eventually receive approval. The FDA in its complete response letter (CRL) sought more data to ensure proper use of the device but did not ask for additional human clinical trials.
