The Library of Congress announced it will store each twitter message since the web site s Start in 2006. Twitter is donating its extensive collection of sweets which will be available on a six month delay for scholarly use. The sentiment is Nice giving the common person a place in history but in reality this Endeavor will just save a lot of irrelevant information. Twitter s recent growth has been phenomenal to say the least. Last March 525,000 different people used the site. This March 22 million users flooded twitter with More than 50 million sweets per Day. What is the Point of storing each and every tweet some historians argue this kind of database could provide important information guest editorial on consumer and societal trends. Really though what kind of information can be gathered from a tweet that reads quot org i love Starbucks. Second Latte of the Day quot that cannot be obtained from a detailed financial report the Best thing to come from this is the Prospect that people might become More conscious of what they Post online but that is just being optimistic. It is indeed significant that twitter has been recognized As an important part of society but the pointless chatter making up a Large part of the millions of daily sweets is not. A the Seattle times the threat of setting America s leading quot tween girl quot marketing consultancy a teens reports that 30 percent of girls aged 9-15 Are quot setting quot sending receiving and or posting sexy messages photos of themselves in their underwear or without clothes online and via cell phones email. Another disturbing finding of the a teens Survey a stunning 81 percent have received sexy messages photos. That s virtually everyone at this tender age when asked Why they Send or Post setting messages eight out of ten said they wanted to get attention two thirds hoped to be quot Cool quot 59 percent wanted to be like the popular girls and 54 percent said they hoped to find a Boyfriend. Younger teens aged 10-12, who received these messages or photos that upset them would Tell their parents but older ones Are less Likely to do so out of a fear their computers or cell phones would be taken away by parents. I asked Pat Trueman former . Justice department director of child exploitation and obscenity prosecution to explain the setting phenomenon. Quot let s understand what setting is. It is children producing and distributing child pornography. It is taboo for anyone to be involved in Why Are they doing so his answer is chilling quot they have Likely spent hours and years looking at internet porn which has broken Down their inhibition to the Point they Are no longer bothered by child Bob Peters president of morality in Media offers a slightly different explanation Michael Mcmanus a ethics amp religion quot a growing number of boys Are looking at pornography and a significant number get hooked on it. The boys pressure girls to Send them nude pictures. Quot the girls Are under the impression that this is what the boys want. They figure if they want to get the boys attention this is one very effective Way to do it quot Peters said. Quot a third Factor is that kids Are not getting a Strong unequivocal message that this is a moral and social evil. It is not taught by parents. They Are not hearing it at school. What they Are seeing in the Media often has a porn theme where it is treated non judgmentally. Music videos Are now being made by people who have created hard Core Denise restauri a teens founder states the danger bluntly quot most parents of tween girls have a false sense of Security that their daughters Aren t old enough to know or care about setting let alone participate so they Are less Likely to talk about setting and the consequences. They mistake not hearing about it from their daily thought thought the Light of Faith in god will banish the darkness of fear in our lives. Scripture the lord is my Light and my salvation whom shall i fear the lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall i be afraid when evil men Advance against me to devour my flesh when my enemies and my foes attack me they will stumble and fall. Psalm 27 1-2. Prayer almighty god Light of the world you have come to give me abundant life. I thank you for shining your Light in my life so that i do not have to live in fear. Help me to always remember to Call on you and turn on the Light of Faith in my life when i am faced with fear in whatever form it May come to me. In Jesus name i Pray. Amen.

You if inappropriate Content goes out. 3. Become informed. Pat Trueman has created a Superb website. with Many articles on the scale of the problem its diversity and Impact. There is no better one step educational strategy than study dog . 4. Demand that hard Core obscenity Laws be enforced. As i reported recently the Obama administration has not filed one Case to prosecute the creators or distributors of obscenity. Believe it or not there Are Federal Laws that make internet obscenity a crime. The Bush ii administration filed cases that put some pornographers out of business which have been upheld in appellate courts. Trueman has launched a quot War on pornography quot which prompted sen. Orrin Hatch to coi front attorney general Eric Holder quot How is this administration enforcing Federal Law prohibiting sexually explicit material that meets the supreme court s definition of obscenity quot Holder replied that he will quot certainly enforce the Why not write Holder 10th Street amp Constitution ave Washington do 20530 and ask him to prosecute or Call your local . Attorney and urge him to file some cases if you Don t act nothing will happen. If you do act you might save thousands of kids.

Lillian now lives at Graystone court apartments Bedford and will celebrate her 100th birthday today april 24. The photo was submitted by her daughter Shirley contributions so contributions to political campaigns no matter How Large Are ultimately about free speech right that at least was the reasoning in a groundbreaking supreme court decision earlier this year that said there was no real difference Between contributions by corporations and those by individuals. Both were found to have a constitutional right to give to the candidates and causes of their Choice. The ramifications we fear will be that corporations and other special interests essentially will be Able to buy the comment elections of the candidates they prefer and Wield undue influence Over the positions those politicians subsequently take. Let s at least require that corporations Tell us whose Money and interests Are behind those expensive political and campaigns. Let s have the High rollers and even the cos appear on to and radio to reaffirm their approval of their messages much As the political candidates themselves Are required to do. It s interesting to note that the opponents of even modest limits on Campaign contributions and Campaign spending have Long argued that the Best and fairest Way to address the vexing Issue of Money in politics is disclosure. Let the people know who makes these contributions to whom and for How much. In the absence of tougher Laws let s at least remember that disclosure is a two Way Street a and have More of it.
