ID Theft problems?

You and some of your friends would have experienced your email address being hacked and sending emails that you did not actually send.  The identity theft online could have been made at the website of spokeo.com that practically has information about your name, email address, phone, username and friends.  This is very alarming because for $2.95 just about anyone can access details about your personal information!

Several friends with Yahoo email address, including mine, have been hacked and has been sending messages, probably thousands.  Of course, if the email address is familiar you will tend to open and read the message only to find out your friend did not send it!  Those that I have received had only short or tiny URLs.  Tracking it shows to have come from somewhere in Canada!  I have not bothered clicking on those tiny URLs because it could be a virus.  I know my friends will not be sending anything like that.

A relative posted this on FaceBook where I learned about it: 

"A site called spokeo.com is a new online USA phone book w/personal information: everything from pics you've posted on FB/web/ur credit score/home value/income/ age. Remove yourself by searching your name/copy the URL of your page/then go to the bottom right corner of the page; click on the Privacy button to remove yourself. Copy and re-post so your friends are aware. No joke. I really found my personal info."

The problem here is the Internet has no governing body that could immediately put a stop to this website.  The sources of spokeo.com is practically from all web sites where your name, email address, phone, username and friends show!  This is grossly unethical and inappropriate for those websites to have subscribed to this system!

This would be a good call to all those who read this and join the protest against spokeo's scheming with risks on personal information theft!  All positive comments on this is highly appreciated.  Please spread the word on this.

Golden voice - Ted Williams

Many made negative comments and say that the phenomenal news about the God-given-golden-voice person Ted Williams should not be praised.  One comment said that with that talent, he could have easily landed a job and not be homeless.  Another said it could set a precedent for talented homeless people and just wait for the same stroke of luck.

Let me tell you this "naturally-fortunate-talented" commentors:
Yes Ted Williams has the talent with that God given golden voice.  And, yes, he knows himself better than anyone of you!  He was into alcohol and drugs.  He had several run-ins with the law.  He is aware that his looks are not like that of Denzel Washington.  He has had hang-ups and maybe still has them.  He might have some inhibitions that you don't. He does not have any identification or any proof of who he is.  With panhandling, he would not be able to work on those to prove who he is! Quite sure - optimists will say - he should have done something about it. (Not until you are in his exact situation will you ever know how it really is)

With all of the above and maybe even many more, even I would not have the courage to try and find the fortune others might have done the ordinary way.  Did any of you even think that the multiple offers being given to him now would be the same if he tried it on his own?  Not a chance, right?  Would any media executive have given him the attention the curious reporter from The Columbus Dispatch had given him without any credentials?  Not a chance again!

Maybe, you naysayers think you've got talent and did not, or does not, get the opportunity and attention that the golden voiced Ted Williams is enjoying now. You are just too proud to say, "well at least I did something about myself and situation", when in truth and in fact is you ENVY the fellow!

Ted Williams the homeless, simply found what America has always been proud to offer, the land of opportunity and opportunity just had its own way of getting to him.

Exercise and Dieting

With reference to my prior blog post on "Dieting is self-discipline", please note that I have done it because I knew I need less energy doing online work at home.  Also I have not taken to my regular exercise and that would be with dumbbell weights during my dieting period.  

After the holidays I decided to do regular dumbbell work again after increased food intake during those days.  Besides, I need to improve my upper body strength again to move around and drive with ease.  With driving, I notice that I need upper body exercise whenever I feel difficulty turning my torso around when backing up.

For this, additional food intake will be more on protein, carbohydrates and calcium.  In addition, I will be supplementing it with vitamins and minerals that would help in developing some muscles with the exercise.  Walking briskly is an exercise supplement I do to even up any extra upper body exercise I do.

I should feel better and comfortable in the next two weeks if I would be able to keep up with this. LOL!
