Track IP Address Prevention Stops Hackers, Cyberstalkers and Surveillance

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 07, 2013

idcloak has published a new article Track IP address protection which suggests ways that internet users may protect themselves against new forms of web-based threats, including hacking, corporate tracking, cyber stalking and cyber theft.

The article groups the dangers into two threat levels, giving separate advice for each. In the section of the article What High and Low Level Computer Security Risks do you Face? examples are given of what constitutes a high or low level threat.

Ask any security expert and they will tell you that threat is measured by the likelihood of harm against the degree of expected damage if it does happen, says Robin Welles, lead web researcher at idcloak and author of the article. So, low level threats can either belong to a high probability of minor harm, such as corporations tracking your activity in order to build marketing profiles, or a low probability of major harm, such as hackers placing spyware on compromised websites.

Asked what kinds of threats constitute a high level threat, Welles explains, The primary definer of a high-level threat is that its motivated and targeted towards an individual. When this happens, there is a much greater risk of significant damage being done. We are talking coordinated hacking, focused surveillance and experienced cyberstalking.

The third and fourth sections of the article offer a suite of suggestions which can be used for protection in the face of low and high level threats. Clearly it is quite reductive to give one set of advice for a series of different threats, but when you realize that many of these threats employ the same tricks, such as IP tracking, it becomes possible to give security advice that is relevant to multiple contexts.

In addition to the many third-party protection services recommended, idcloak introduces its own VPN, an advanced IP address privacy tool that protects against third-party tracking.

idcloak Technologies is due to launch its own anonymous VPN service next month.

Breast Cancer Prevention with Vitamin D: GrassrootsHealth Paradigm


Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012

GrassrootsHealth focus is on prevention of breast cancer, not early detection. Our aim is to engage women in the primary prevention of breast cancer by getting their vitamin D serum levels tested and then getting that level to the 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L) range, says Carole Baggerly, director of GrassrootsHealth.

According to Dr. Cedric F. Garland of the Moores Cancer Center and the UCSD School of Medicine:

This will potentially be the most important action ever conducted toward prevention of breast cancer. The more women who participate in this study, the greater the chance that we will defeat breast cancer within our lifetimes.

Women across the world are invited to enroll in a 5-year Breast Cancer Prevention Study initiated by GrassrootsHealth. To be eligible to enroll, women must be at least 60 years of age and have no current cancer. A free vitamin D home test kit will be provided for the first 1000 women to enroll. The study aims to fully demonstrate health outcomes of vitamin D serum levels in the range of 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L) and will examine the occurrence of breast cancer among a population of women 60 and over who achieve and maintain a targeted vitamin D serum level in the bloodstream. In addition to breast cancer prevention, short-term effects of vitamin D such as hypertension, falls, colds and flu will also be tracked. More information can be found at http://www.grassrootshealth.net.

Funding for this enrollment is being actively solicited by GrassrootsHealth. Participants as well as other sponsors are encouraged to make a donation of at least $ 75 to help cover the costs of this step in the project. The total funding goal for this cycle is $ 150,000. Everyone can donate at http://www.razoo.com/story/Prevent-Breast-Cancer.

We are expecting to find individuals and organizations who can help us meet our target of $ 300,000 per year. This will cover the participation of 1000 women for two vitamin D screenings per year and the analysis of the information. We have been funded entirely by private individuals and private organizations. Currently, both Bio-Tech Pharmacal and the Vitamin D Society are helping fund D*action Community Breast Cancer Prevention Projects in Northwest Arkansas and Canada respectively.

There is a large group of people who are ready for action to prevent breast cancer. We sincerely hope that those people will help by donating directly to this effort to demonstrate how we can do primary prevention, not early detection. Ive had breast cancer. I dont want anyone else to get it! says Carole Baggerly, director of GrassrootsHealth.

Return of Football Season Brings Attention to High Injury Rates and Need for Prevention

Return of Football Season Brings Attention to High Injury Rates and Need for Prevention












Rosemont, IL (Vocus) September 8, 2010

With fans anticipating the return of their favorite college and NFL players, thousands of young athletes also are conditioning for football programs of their own. The high-speed, full-contact plays may be an exciting aspect of the game, but also create a unique set of injuries that recent studies show are skyrocketing nationwide.

According to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission:


    The 2009 football season saw over 1.2 million football-related injuries;
    Such injuries resulted in more than $ 2.8 billion total medical costs from treatments in hospitals, doctor’s offices, and emergency rooms.

“Traumatic injuries to the knee and shoulder as well as concussions are the most common types of injuries we see on both the professional and youth levels,” said orthopaedic surgeon Matthew Matava, MD, team physician for the St. Louis Rams and spokesperson for the STOP Sports Injuries campaign and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). “Overuse injuries, especially in the beginning of the season are another big issue with kids pushing themselves too far and too fast without proper conditioning.”

The STOP Sports Injuries Campaign was launched in the spring of 2010 by a coalition of leading healthcare organizations, including the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), National Strength and Conditioning Association, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, Sports Physical Therapy Section and SAFE Kids USA to expose the growing epidemic of youth sports injuries related to overuse and trauma.

Because many football injuries can be prevented, the AOSSM and AAOS encourage the following easy strategies for parents, coaches and athletes:

    Have a pre-season health and wellness evaluation to determine ability to participate
    Warm-up properly with low-impact exercises like jogging that gradually increase heart rate
    Consistently incorporate strength training and stretching. A good stretch involves not going beyond the point of resistance and should be held for 10-12 seconds
    Hydrate adequately to maintain health and minimize cramps
    Play multiple positions and/or sports during the off-season to minimize overuse injuries
    Wear properly fitted protective equipment, such as a helmet, pads, shoes and mouthguard. Do not modify equipment.
    Tackle with the head up and do not lead with the helmet
    Cool-down properly to gradually lower heart rate with exercises like light jogging.
    Don’t play through the pain. Speak with an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine or athletic trainer if you have any concerns about injuries or tips on injury prevention.

Concussions in football are another serious concern and could have long-term health and mental ramifications. “Having coaches, parents and athletes know the symptoms of a concussion, is critical and could save lives,” said Matava. Concussion symptoms include:

    Balance problems
    Difficulty communicating, concentrating
    Dizziness
    Drowsiness
    Fatigue
    Feeling mentally foggy
    Headache
    Irritability
    Sleeping more than usual or not as much as usual
    Visual problems

If you recognize these symptoms in an athlete, seek treatment from a certified athletic trainer or physician immediately.

For more information on football injury treatment and prevention, visit http://www.STOPSportsInjuries.org or http://www.orthoinfo.org.

The STOP Sports Injuries campaign was initiated by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and includes a comprehensive public outreach program focused on the importance of sports safety—specifically relating to overuse and trauma injuries. The initiative not only raises awareness and provides education on injury reduction, but also highlights how playing safe and smart can enhance and extend a child’s athletic career, improve teamwork, reduce obesity rates and create a lifelong love of exercise and healthy activity. The campaign’s message underscores the problems of youth overuse and trauma injuries and emphasizes the expertise of our coalition of experts, including the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Academy of Pediatrics, National Athletic Trainers’ Association, National Strength and Conditioning Association, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine. Sports Physical Therapy Section, Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America and SAFE Kids USA.
