Educator Andrea Jones posted Monday: We had two spots open up in this week's preschool mini-camp, "at the beach" - does your child want to join our fun? Camp is from 9-12 m-th at the little red treehouse at Toledo Elementary. All kids ages 3-6 are welcome! Need-based scholarships available.
Tuesday she added: Who is interested in after school classes for kids 7-11? (Possibly also a 5-7 class) Cost would be per 12 weeks of your choice of classes 3-5 Tuesday-Friday, and would work out to around $5 per hour. Also would consider a "homework club" from 5-6pm and tutoring as available on Monday afternoons. Let me know if you would seriously be interested in this because I've had some interest already and am working on making it happen - I will be sending out sign-ups soon and I have a feeling they will fill up fast!
Q: Will Farmers Insurance in Toledo be collecting school supplies for kids again this year?
A: Absolutely! We will accept donations starting August 1. We collect school supplies for all grade levels.
Today: Toledo New Life Community Food Bank 10 a.m. - noon last Tuesday & Wednesday monthly serving our community area of Toledo by sharing the love of Christ through the essential needs we all have.

-The Great American Eclipse, on August 21st of this year,
-The Perseid meteor shower, which peaks on the weekend of August 11th, 12th and 13th, and
-The re-emergence of Star Trek, with the new TV series in September, my book debuting in October, and with me appearing at the official Star Trek convention in Las Vegas next month!

Tech Report: Security Breaches & What They Mean To You
Part 2: Developing contingency plans for your virtual world.
Last week cyber criminals gained access to personal data from Verizon, WSU, and an estimated 9 of 10 health insurers.
This week, the truth about dismal responses from entities entrusted with your info, and what you can do if you’re exposed.
Adam Levine is a consumer advocate, Chairman & Founder of CyberScout, co-founder of Credit.com.* His article on avoiding data breaches notes apathy throughout industry and government toward safeguards and remediation. Joblink, a nation wide database used by job seekers in private and public sectors, was hacked in 10 states** during February & March this year, Social Security numbers and birthdates accessed. There is no estimate on how many people were affected.
So what can you do as a victim?
Privacyrights.org lists step-by-step details in their online consumer guide What To Do When You Receive A Data Breach Notice (updated June 2017) and everyone’s favorite Tom’s Guide offers What to Do After a Data Breach.
