College Sexual Assault: The Hunting Ground


collegedrunk

1 in 5 College Women WILL BE Sexually Assaulted according to years of Statistical data gathered at the US Department of Justice.

Now you can have the chance to see how real it is in the new film the Hunting Ground.  The Hunting Ground among other things examines a sexual assault accusation against a Notre Dame football player in 2010. The Hunting Ground features a group of survivors who faced harsh retaliation and harassment for reporting that they had been raped. The film focuses on institutional cover-ups and the brutal backlash against survivors at campuses such as Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USC and the University of California-Berkeley, among others. Some of this may be hard to watch, but I think it should be required for all college females, and their parents.

Carry Your Pepper Spray when you Jog or Walk


Don’t forget to bring your secret self-defense product.

When you are out running alone, riding your bike alone, either in the dark or  in secluded areas you are putting yourself at

woman_joggercan be a risk. If you like to jog on trails through a park, it’s like having a sign on your back that says “Hurt Me”. Hundreds of women are sexually assaulted every year jogging on trails, and dozens murdered. Remember this one important fact:  every 107 seconds, another American is sexually assaults.

You can do an internet search of women who have been sexually assaulted while exercising

Anytime you are out exercising or just enjoying a nice walk, you run (no pun intended) the risk of being the target of some criminal scum. Statistically criminals target  female because they consider them to be easy prey. However, there are also cases where men have been attacked or robbed while jogging or walking alone. Some delinquents have figured out that joggers may be too out of breath to put up a fight, thus, easy pickings for robbery and/or rape. Physical fitness should be an important part of your daily life, just make sure you are mentally and physically protected. The female self defense products we recommend is pepper spray. It’s easy to carry, easy to use, and highly effective.

Dog Attacks are also a Threat for Joggers

Not only do you have to be mindful of bad people, you may need to be mindful of bad pets.  Some people utilize dogs as an added element if their home security. Should a dog run after you, stop. I know this sounds crazy, but running excites dogs, and be prepared to spray them to stop them from attacking your. With any luck you can walk out of the dog’s protective territory when it sees you are not a threat. Should the dog attack, use your pepper spray to repel and disable the dog from injuring you. Pepper spray is an non-lethal effective dog repellent that is easy to carry on your run.

Protect yourself from being hacked!


Cyber crime such as hacking is on the rise…and it’s up to you to protect yourself!  As you all know, once a week or so I like to share tips to keep your life home, business or body safe.  PepperEyes.com is about offering the best life safety solutions in an every changing world.  Today I’m writing about cyber phishing ..again. The reason is simple I continuously get bait e-mail that try to phish our corporate e-mails. It’s is because some employees or family members fall for these old tricks that allow corporate, financial, government, or home computers to get phished or hacked.   Over the holidays I had someone who became a victims of ransomware and she said she had a virus checker and all. My analogy to this is that you can have the best security system to keep burglars out of your house, bank or business, but if you open the door and let them in, then your security system is useless to stop the criminal.

So cyber criminals, try to avoid all of your software security solutions buy using the flawed human factor. See all a criminal need to do is drop a few virus loaded flash drive around a business, or use a technique called spear phishing.  All it takes is one curious employee to take the flash drive and plug it into a corporate computer to see what is on it. In the case of spear phishing, the user gets what looks like a realistic e-mail from a real person or company, but contains a malware link, or is used to obtain personal information. In the case of the flash drive method, one of the files or pictures can easily install a malware that can do damage to their computer, and every computer or server that user has access.

The favorite cyber flavor of the month, are realistic e-mail from companies you may do business with alerting you to a problem with your account.

Take a look at this email.


Amazon

Looks legitimate.  It has a realistic logo to make it look official  SO how do I know it’s not real.

If I put my mouse of the HERE link I can see the URL does not even go to an Amazon account.  It goes to some site in the Netherlands. The other two links however do go to Amazon.  In addition the e-mail is not addressed to me.

To help you protect yourself from phishing, we offer the following tips:

  1. LEARN TO IDENTIFY SUSPECTED PHISHING TRICKS
    1. There are some qualities that identify an attack through an email:
      1. They duplicate the image of a real company.
      2. Copy the name of a company or an actual employee of the company.
  • Include sites that are visually similar to a real business.
  1. The URL in the e-mail does not go back to the business
  2. Promote gifts, or the loss of an existing account.
  3. Come from unrecognized senders.
  • The message isn’t personalized
  • Try to upset you into acting quickly by threatening you with frightening information
  1. TRUST BUT VERIFY
    1. Do not click on links, download files or open attachments in emails from unknown senders. It is best to open attachments only when you are expecting them and know what they contain, even if you know the sender.
    2. Good hackers can use e-mails addresses from your address both to trick you into thinking it is from a friend or relative.
    3. Go directly to that companies web site by typing in the URL, and check to see what is going on , if anything.
  2. CHECK THE SOURCE OF INFORMATION FROM INCOMING MAIL
    1. Your bank will never ask you to send your passwords or personal information by mail. Never respond to these questions, and if you have the slightest doubt, call your bank directly for clarification.
  3. NEVER GO TO YOUR BANK’S WEBSITE BY CLICKING ON LINKS INCLUDED IN EMAILS
    1. Do not click on hyperlinks or links attached in the email, as it might direct you to a fraudulent website.
    2. Communicate personal information only via phone or secure web sites (https)
      1. Also, beware of phone phishing schemes. Do not divulge personal information over the phone unless you initiate the call. Be cautious of emails that ask you to call a phone number to update your account information as well.
    3. Type in the URL directly into your browser or use bookmarks / favorites if you want to go faster.
  4. BEWARE OF POP-UP BOXES
    1. Never enter personal information in a pop-up screen
    2. Do not click on links in a pop-up screen
    3. Do not copy web addresses into your browser from pop-ups
  5. ENHANCE THE SECURITY OF YOUR COMPUTER
    1. Common sense and good judgment is as vital as keeping your computer protected with a good antivirus to block this type of attack.
    2. In addition, you should always have the most recent update on your operating system and web browsers.
  6. ENTER YOUR SENSITIVE DATA IN SECURE WEBSITES ONLY
    1. Legitimate enterprises should never ask you to submit personal information in pop-up screens, so don’t do it
    2. In order for a site to be ‘safe’, it must begin with ‘https://’ and your browser should show an icon of a closed lock.
  7. PERIODICALLY CHECK YOUR ACCOUNTS
    1. It never hurts to check your bank accounts periodically to be aware of any irregularities in your online transactions.
  8. PHISHING DOESN’T ONLY PERTAIN TO ONLINE BANKING
    1. Most phishing attacks are against banks, but can also use any popular website to steal personal data such as eBay, Facebook, PayPal, etc.
  9. PHISHING KNOWS ALL LANGUAGES
    1. Phishing knows no boundaries, and can reach you in any language. In general, they’re poorly written or translated, so this may be another indicator that something is wrong.
    2. If you never you go to the Spanish website of your bank, why should your statements now be in this language?
  10. HAVE THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT, DO NOT RISK IT.
    1. The best way to prevent phishing is to consistently reject any email or news that asks you to provide confidential data.
    2. Delete these emails and call your bank to clarify any doubts.

How to carry your pepper spray!


The type and size of pepper spray you should carry really depends on what your needs are and what you’re comfortable ps1with. Basically, you should carry the largest size that is practical and permissible for you. Most 2 ounce- sprays are about 3-inches long and about 1-inch in diameter, and small enough to clip to your purse or to your belt. If you find this model inconvenient or impractical, even with the holster, try a key-chain model pepper spray.

SW3HBK18_PepperSpray_keysThe biggest advantage of the key-chain model pepper spray is that you are not likely to forget it, and it is very easy to get to if you keep your keys in hand.  You need to be familiar with the spray patter of your key chain model as some of them have a stream pattern, and some have a cone mist.foxspray

Unless you have no other choice, do not carry your pepper spray in your pocket. Too often the spray cannot be accessed quickly enough when you need it, or you risk the chance of accidentally discharging  it in your pocket. Remember that most assault will happen within a few seconds and in a short distance. So you think you can reach in your pocket, and fish out your pepper spray, position it and spray it effectively in that brief moment?

You also risk the chance of damaging your pepper spray. How often have you left things in your pockets, and either they have gotten washed, or your hung up the garment and then forgot where you left it.

In, addition all but the smallest ½-ounce and ¾-ounce pepper sprays are too large to comfortable fit in your pocket.  As an alternative many of the larger 3-oucne and above have carrying clips.

No matter where you carry it…make sure you can get to it when you need to.
