Facebook and other social networking sites have always had a problem with porn spam. Porn spam usually starts in the form of, much more often then not, a friend request from a pretty women, or from one of your Facebook friends posting a status update saying something like this “I just entered to win a FREE iPad 2. Click Here and you can too http://tzyu.loci”.
This type of scam is the most common and is called “Phishing Schemes”. Phishers go after your credentials (username, password and sometimes more), then take over your profile, and may attempt to gain access to your other online accounts. Phishing schemes can be difficult to spot, especially if the scammers have set up a page that resembles Facebook’s login portal.
Charlie Harper is no more. He has bought the farm, kicked the bucket and snuffed out his last cigar as he passes away and fades to black for his final curtain call. The beloved fictional character best known for his womanizing, partying and self-centered hedonism is being laid to rest after endearing himself to fans of his often absurd but always entertaining lifestyle. Clearly, Charlie deserves a unique and memorable sendoff fitting for his larger-than-life character from the very fans who made him a success, those loyal followers who have been left on the edge of their seats with his sudden departure.
A flash flood that buried Aden Muslim Funeral Services under five feet of water Thursday night because of Tropical Storm Lee did not stop business as usual on Saturday.
From the front, the quaint, two-story white-paneled structure on Easy Street in Woodbridge looked relatively unscathed. And services were still being performed on Saturday morning and afternoon, albeit outside the main part of the building.
But less than 48 hours earlier, water rushing from Marumsco Creek rose five feet into the building, knocked down a fence in the parking lot and damaged four cars – including three hearses.
A recent trend has more and more death notices in newspapers concluding with the words, “No public funeral will follow cremation at the express wishes of the deceased. A family farewell will take place later.”
This has me wondering why deceased are moving away from public funerals which were the accepted practice 20 years ago where friends and neighbors could attend to express their respect and sympathy, to a slipping away that stirs scarcely a ripple in the wider community.
If the absence of a public funeral is due to the instructions left by the deceased, why did the deceased choose to shuffle off so quietly?
Was he shy, avoiding participation in public displays of any kind throughout his life? Did he offer ready excuses when invited to family get-togethers such as reunions? Did he judge skipping the funeral to be a simpler, kinder way for his family to give him up?

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — While many Americans worry that the Social Security Administration won’t have enough money left to pay their benefits when they retire, the agency is doling out millions of dollars to people who aren’t even alive.
The Social Security inspector general estimates that the agency has made $40.3 million in erroneous payments to deceased beneficiaries — even though the administration had already recorded their deaths in its records. The estimate is based on a sample tested during its most recent audit in January 2008, the watchdog agency said.
One man told CNNMoney that he notified Social Security four years ago that his mother had passed away, but he still can’t get the agency to stop sending her checks every month.
Dennis Marvin, a Cleveland-based financial advisor, said several of his clients have grown frustrated by how long it took them to convince Social Security to stop sending payments to deceased family members.
