Growing up with the internet: 2nd Report of Session 2016–17

On 8 november 2016 Members of the Committee visited Richard Atkins Primary School in Brixton to observe a special assembly presented by Google. Lord Best, Lord Gilbert of Panteg, the Earl of Caithness and the Bishop of Chelmsford were in attendance. This was part of the ‘Internet Legends Tour’, an initiative which Google had developed in partnership with Parent Zone to promote online safety in schools. The information was targeted at children between 9 and 10, and was centred around four messages encouraging children: not to share personal information or images which might be embarrassing; to protect passwords; to think critically to avoid ‘phishing’ type scams; and, to respect one another online. The assembly was presented by a professional actor and with a well-made set. In a post-assembly meeting, Google told Members of the Committee that the assembly was presented in 40 schools a year. Google was intending to develop resources so that schools could present a modified version of the assembly by themselves. It had already developed lesson plans and presentation slides.

House of Commons: Women and Equalities Committee:Sexual harassment and sexual violence in schools: Third Report of Session 2016–17 : 13 September 2016

Parents are flailing here. They have never found it comfortable talking to their children about sex, and most parents do not. Now they are in a world where it is often so very different from the world that they were growing up in, they are flailing. If they can be brought into the conversation and work in partnership with the schools on this, at least you are able to have a two-pronged approach. You might not be able to solve the world, but…you can work in partnership.155 173. Parents and schools working together can make SRE more effective, as demonstrated in evidence from the Sex Education Forum.156 As OnePlusOne noted “policy guidelines from the Department for Education and Skills have also stipulated parental and/or community involvement with the school SRE curriculum.”157

19) The recently revised KCSIE guidance (published 5 September 20161) has gone further. This guidance was consulted upon between 22 December 2015 and 16 February 2016. The guidance makes clear that a child is capable of abusing another child (peer on peer abuse). It sets out that governing bodies and proprietors should ensure their child protection policy includes procedures to minimise the risk of peer abuse and sets out how allegations of peer on peer abuse will be investigated and dealt with. The policy should reflect the different forms peer on peer abuse can take, make clear that abuse is abuse and should never be tolerated or passed off as “banter” or “part of growing up”. It should be clear as to how victims of peer on peer abuse should be supported.

Digital skills crisis : second report of Session 2016–17 : report, together with formal minutes relating to the report : ordered by the House of Commons to be printed 7 Jun 2016

The skills gap presents itself at all stages in the education and training pipeline, from schools to the workplace. An audit of IT equipment in schools found that 22% of it is ineffective. Only 35% of ICT teachers hold a relevant qualification. The Government has been able to recruit only 70% of the required number of computer science teachers into the profession. The UK will need 745,000 additional workers with digital skills to meet rising demand from employers between 2013 and 2017, and almost 90% of new jobs require digital skills to some degree, with 72% of employers stating that they are unwilling to interview candidates who do not have basic IT skills. Two-thirds of ‘datavore’ businesses report that they have struggled to fill at least one vacancy when trying to recruit analysts over a 12 month period, and 93% of tech companies find that the digital skills gap affects their commercial operations. As a result of emerging technologies, there is also a growing demand for high level digital skills in areas such as cyber security, cloud and mobile computing and data analytics. Despite the vacancies, however, some 13% of computer science students are still unemployed six months after graduating.

Growing Up a Witness

Growing Up a Witness

“is often nothing more than a passing phase” (Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylania, 2010, para. 5). Although we can acknowledge the fluidity of sexuality, this also presents a problematic ideal that heterosexuality is natural while other sexualities are not. Looking back on the time when I was searching for answers on my own sexuality, I did not turn to the internet. Yet, kids that have grown up with access to the technology that we have now turn to websites for help. They trust that someone out there can help them with their struggles, having the power to advise them in the right direction. The youth that turn to the website of their faith would solely find condemnation. As the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (n.d.) states, “LGBT* youth are at greater risk for depression, suicide, substance use, and sexual behaviors that can place them at increased risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)” (para. 2). Therefore, isolation is extremely damaging, if not deadly. We have a human responsibility to provide light for those who suffer within the darkness that this world can spread. The terrifying truth is that those who suffer from marginalization can be cloaked in even greater darkness. I remember when I was on the edge of either being swallowed in uncertainty or finding my

A Case of Growing Up

A Case of Growing Up

Mom kept the windows up. It wasn’t even raining, but I didn’t argue because I figured the wind would only mess up my hair so it was actually better that way. Inside the car was hot and I was sweating and my back settled in a sticky position against the passenger seat. It was a good thing I was wearing black. The ride was uncomfortably stuffy, and I would have welcomed rain. Funerals are best with a rainy day backdrop. Mom was too focused, or maybe too much in a daze, to notice the heat. She was always the one who made the executive decisions about the AC, so the stifling air stayed put. The radio cut the silence that Mom and I had preserved. I didn’t talk because I was afraid that anything I would say might bring Mom to tears. Her eyes were already glassy.

Q16 John Pugh: I just have one big question and one quite small question, to Mr Rafferty, while he is there. One of you mentioned the system a few minutes ago and we have some submissions that show that people are occasionally baffled by the system and the lines of accountability. I would like you, just briefly, to comment on that, because if we look at how a patient with an often extremely troubled psychology is treated, and with a very fretful family, they normally find the entrance point to the system via the GP, who refers them to some provider, who is commissioned by a third body. The provider—I think I am right in saying this, Mr Rafferty— can sometimes just diagnose and then refer on to another provider, who provides the treatment. That is fine when everything goes seamlessly, but when things go wrong and the treatment isn’t working—there are certainly some touching accounts in the submissions we have had about when it hasn’t—it doesn’t seem an ideal set-up. I was mindful when preparing for this that there are some areas where commissioning is done slightly differently or better or more wisely. I would just like all of you to comment on the accountability factor. Who is responsible ultimately for the troubled patient?

17 FUNDAMENTALS OF INTERNET

Internet directories are on-line Web sites that place Web page into one or more categories. Web pages are usually listed with a brief description and their URL. Depending on the Internet directory you are using, a search engine may also be available, as well as a Ran- dom URL link. Directories operate on a different principle. They require people to view the individual Web site and determine its placement into a subject classification scheme or taxonomy. Once done, certain keywords associated with those sites can be used for searching the directory’s data banks to find Web sites of interest some popular search engineers are:-

Growing up in Scotland: sweep 3 food and activity report

Growing up in Scotland: sweep 3 food and activity report

There was a correlation between diet and activity, with less active children being less likely to eat a wide variety of vegetables and being more likely to consume unhealthy foods or drinks on a daily basis. Interestingly, the correlation was not seen with regards to fruit consumption. Furthermore, GUS data reinforced previous research findings that children who had a higher preference for energy-dense foods and fatty foods also had a stronger preference for sedentary activities, such as watching TV and playing computer games. An exploration was carried out of the impact of breastfeeding on later eating habits, which found that, although there was little difference between the proportions of breastfed and non-breastfed children who snacked on breakfast cereal, sweets or chocolate, cakes or biscuits or bread, breastfed children were more likely to snack on fruit (75% vs. 64%) and savoury snacks (51% vs. 40%), and were less likely to eat crisps (38% vs. 51%). Breastfed children were also more likely to have an overall ‘good’ diet: 17% vs. 7% of non-breastfed children. This remained the case even when controlling for socio-demographic factors. Interestingly, children of different BMI levels varied little in their diet and activity scores, probably due to the young age of the children.

The Session 1 of 2nd Presbyterian Church - A Review

The Session 1 of 2nd Presbyterian Church - A Review

Because human beings are sinful, they may devise a multitude of reasons why marriages should be dissolved. The Scriptures, however, give explicit sanction for divorce only in the case of adultery or other gross sexual immoral- ity or in the case of willful, irremediable, and prolonged desertion. We recognize that there are marriages which require extended counsel and insight in determining whether a couple should divorce, separate, or live together as a married couple in a strained and difficult relationship. Examples of these cases are drug, alcohol, gambling, or pornography addictions, violent physical abuse, internet affairs, and extra-marital romantic liaisons. While it is not the purpose or intent of this paper to deal with every type of marital conflict, we do emphasize the need for seeking the wisdom of the church and other godly counsel in determining God’s will in difficult marital relationships.

Growing up together

Growing up together

This study extends previous work on birth-order effects with its strong longitudinal within-family design and its focus on social behavioral development. However, some limitations need to be mentioned. First, the presence of the other sibling during the observational tasks used to measure sharing behavior and compliance may have amplified birth-order effects. Firstborn children had to share with a preverbal and less powerful sibling, while second-born children shared with stronger and more dominant siblings who were very well able to communicate their wishes. In the compliance task, firstborn children were confronted with a younger sibling who had more difficulty with being compliant, while second-born children were confronted with an older sibling who was better able to comply with the parent. However, these situations are representative for how siblings influence each other in daily life, and thus have high ecological validity. It seems reasonable to expect that these experiences within the family also shape the social behaviors that a child displays in other settings. Future studies could address this by comparing social behaviors of firstborn and second-born children displayed within and outside the family context. A second limitation is the use of parent report to measure child externalizing behavior. These measures may provide information on how parents perceive child problem behavior instead of providing an objective measure of actual child behavior. Finally, our

Building Internet Firewalls, 2nd Ed  pdf

Building Internet Firewalls, 2nd Ed pdf

If your terminal servers and modem pools are being used to support dial-up network connections from homes or other sites, you should make sure you enforce any implicit assumptions you have about that usage. For instance, people setting up PPP accounts on terminal servers generally assume that the PPP account is going to be used by a single remote machine running standalone. More and more machines, however, are part of local area networks, even at home (Dad's PC is in the den, Mom's in the living room). That PPP connection could be used not just by the machine you set it up for, but by anything that machine is connected to, and anything those machines are connected to, and so forth. The machine that uses the PPP account might be connected to a local area network, with any number of other machines on it; any of them might be connected (via other PPP connections, for example) to another site or an Internet service provider. If you don't do anything to prevent it, traffic could flow from the Internet, to the second PC, to the "legitimate" PC, and finally into your own net, completely bypassing your firewall.

Internet Routing Architectures 2nd Edition pdf

Internet Routing Architectures 2nd Edition pdf

These three routing approaches are possibilities for all the AS configurations considered in forthcoming sections, but usually there is an optimal approach. Thus, in illustrating different autonomous systems, this chapter considers whether static, dynamic, default, or some combination of these is optimal. This chapter also considers whether interior or exterior routing protocols are appropriate. However, a more detailed exploration of routing choices for different AS topologies will not be discussed until Chapter 6, "Tuning BGP Capabilities." Always remember that static and default routing are not your enemy. The most stable (but sometimes less flexible) configurations are based on static routing. Many people feel that they are not technologically up to date just because they are not running dynamic routing. Trying to force dynamic routing on situations that do not require it is a waste of bandwidth, effort, and money. Recall the KISS principle introduced in the preceding chapter!

The Growing Localities Awards 2016

The Growing Localities Awards 2016

Just a few years ago Providence Row, an East End homelessness centre, had plenty of outdoor space not being used at all by staff and clients. One client described their courtyard as being more like a ‘prison yard’. The organisation embarked on a three year project to transform their space, with help from corporate partners, local volunteers and the charity’s beneficiaries themselves. Since then, the courtyard has been completely revamped and now has movable flowerbed planters and a herb garden. The building’s unused roof, refurbished last winter, is now a flourishing allotment, growing a whole range of fruit and veg, and providing a home to the charity’s resident bee hives. The garden regeneration provided an excellent project for the organisation’s garden group. Regular corporate volunteering days have been getting local workers into gardening gloves and working with clients on a range of green projects. This does wonders for breaking down barriers and misconceptions of homelessness in the local area and helps raise vital funds for the charity’s work.

Growing up in Scotland: sweep 3 non-resident parent report

Growing up in Scotland: sweep 3 non-resident parent report

For some children with a non-resident father at sweep 3, a transition in family structure took place in a move from a lone parent family to a step family, as Table 2.1 demonstrates. Indeed, 9% of former lone mothers in the birth cohort and 17% in the child cohort had re-partnered between sweeps 1 and 3, and thus now formed couple households with someone other than the child’s natural father. In addition, at sweep 3, more than one in ten children who had a non-resident father had a grandparent living in the household, with 7% in the birth cohort and 6% in the child cohort living with another adult extended-family member. Therefore, although these children were not living with their natural father, many had a considerable amount of other adult family support in their home. Twenty-nine percent of children in the birth cohort and 34% of those in the child cohort with a non-resident parent lived with either a step-parent or a relative in addition to their mothers.

Growing Up in Ireland

Growing Up in Ireland

Regular dental check-ups and advice can prevent problems, can identify them early and treatment can help to avoid major problems later on in the child’s life. In Ireland, dental care is available free at the point of use to all medical card holders, and for preschool and school children attending state primary schools referred from child health service or school health service examinations. Growing Up in Ireland asked the mother to indicate how often the Study Child visited the dentist with response options ranging from at least once a year to only when there is a problem. Overall, 62% of children visited the dentist at least once a year, 21% attended at least once every two years. More than one in ten children (12%) visited the dentist only when there was a problem and one in fifty mothers (2%) reported that their child rarely or never visits. Figure 5.3 confirms that lower income is associated with a lower use of dental services, with lower income families less likely to visit at least once a year. This relationship has policy implications as Irish research suggests that the clinical need for dental care increases with lower income (O'Mullane 1999). Given this, it is likely that those children having least attention from a dentist have the greatest need for their services.
