Composition and Critical Thinking
For this Project I am going to write about Privacy. Why? Privacy can be hard to come about these days, whether it is online, bill, or a statement. Identity is one of the most common privacy breaches out there. No matter what you do, any information you expose or action that you do is at risk of being seen. Statics show that someone’s identity is stolen every two seconds. There are many ways to prevent a breach of privacy.
1. Keep what you only need. Reduce information that you have or keep. Keep only what is needed. Limit where you information is exposed and monitor where it is kept.
2. Avoid using Wi-Fi. I know it is hard these days due to everything having to be internet.
3. Be careful in where you trust your information to be and what.
4. If you have personal information written down, make sure you dispose it properly. May it be burning it or shredding it.
5. Limit your access to the public.
6. Do not give your social security number or driver’s license to an untrusted site or untrusted business.
7. Get a trusted virus protection on your computer with a wall protector. Meaning it has a great protection in regards to your identity and keep them updated.
Additionally, limiting your access and exposure will help your risk and save your privacy. 9.9 million People fall victims to Identity theft a year. It comes in many many ways and unexpected. I do not think there is such a thing as being too cautious or too safe. For example:
Florida Resident Sentenced for Aggravated Identity Theft
On September 23, 2013, in Orlando, Fla., Abdul Cunningham, of Rockledge, Fla., was sentenced to 144 months in prison, ordered to pay $560,731 in restitution and a money judgment of $560,731. Cunningham pleaded guilty on June 13, 2013 to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. A co-defendant, Jana Harris-Cunningham, pleaded guilty on June 24, 2013 and is awaiting sentencing. According to court documents, the defendants engaged in a scheme to defraud the United States Treasury by filing fraudulent income tax returns and negotiating fraudulent tax refunds using stolen identities. Cunningham and Harris-Cunningham filed 145 false claims with the IRS for tax years 2010 and 2011. As part of their scheme, both used the stolen identities along with false and fraudulent wage and tax withholding information to prepare fraudulent federal income tax returns. After filing the false returns, Cunningham and Harris-Cunningham accepted and negotiated reloadable debit cards that they knew contained fraudulently obtained income tax refunds.
This is another version of Identity theft which, like I said before, is common. When you do not take the time to protect your information, something horrible like this can occur in a snap of a finger. That is why it is your best interest to have your information and identity protected by all cost. Avoid ads where you have “A chance to win ….” because, more than likely it is a trap.
I know that this doesn’t not exactly have anything to do with privacy but in a way it does. This is your personal information on the line which is considered private. I know that when I feel that my personal information is being taken advantage of, I feel violated. Much less: in someone else’s hands. That is how I feel about it. I have never had it done to me and hope I do not but we are all sitting ducks!

The consensus that we live in the greatest nation in the world is not so much a feeling of nationalism as it is a forgone conclusion in the minds of millions of Americans.

SocialismSocialism The term socialism is commonly used to refer both to an ideology--a comprehensive set of beliefs or ideas about the nature of human society and its future desirable state--and to a state of society based on that ideology.

Due to the fact that they were free from British control, they wanted to create their own system of government where tyranny would be practically diminished. Originally, the separate states were connected by The Articles of Confederation. But this document gave the central government no power of their own. Because of this, the states had many prob

The spirits summoned up can no longer be exorcised. Gone is the euphoria. Gone the patriotic noise in the streets, the chase after the gold-colored automobile, one false telegram after another, the wells poisoned by cholera, the Russia
