Facebook to teach thousands of schoolkids about dangers of cyber bullying

FACEBOOK has agreed to plough £1m into a scheme that helps schoolkids to identify and deal with online abuse – in a victory for The Sun’s Block the Bullying campaign.

The announcement comes just five days after our crusade helped force the social media giant to sign up to a code of conduct and reveal how seriously it takes millions of abuse complaints.

Strava thread goes viral as riders squabble about ‘stealing KOMs’ and ‘cyber bullying’

If you’re ever tempted to have a heated discussion on Strava, it’s worth bearing in mind the potential for it all to go viral, as was the case with one argument between two riders in Australia.

The argument flared up on a fairly inconspicuous 60km ride by a one Scott Bradley, in which he took three KOMs, including that of “Two Hills” – a segment ridden by a grand total of five other people – by 14 seconds over Brendan Edwards.

Are you a Strava addict?

“So what?” you might say, but for Brendan (who has since changed his Strava name to . .) this seemed like the last straw as he accused Scott of “chain attacking” his KOMs, and after receiving a response, called him a “true cyber bully”.

At that point, it could have all ended, until another rider,

Emily Osment Speaks Out About Cyber-Bullying & Mental Health: ‘Think Before You Speak’

Emily Osment, like many celebrities, has responded to the controversial Netflix series 13 Reasons Why — and she has a lot to say.

“I watched a few episode of ’13 Reasons Why’ this week and it reminded my of my own journey shooting Cyberbully in Montreal at nineteen,” she shared on Twitter.

“It was a grueling and emotional six weeks that will never leave me as long as I live. I went to work every day and sunk myself into a sorrow hole because I felt it was the only way to truly depict depression. I had to live it, and pulling myself out at the end was incredibly challenging, but ultimately a supremely rewarding experience.”

The Young Hungry actress then pivots to talking about bullying itself.

“Cyber-bullying doesn’t have an age limit,

Think about getting a cyber cover if you have not already

Criminal activities carried out with the help of computer / electronic devices along with use of internet would qualify as cyber crime. It can be committed as a combination of either our failure to do something properly or the criminal overwhelms the system to gain access. For example – access-point weakness, negligence, confidential information, craze for sharing information, Malware/ Ransomware, among others.

Last few years have seen a quantum jump in cyber attacks on business enterprises and our awareness of the same due to frequent media attention. Cyber crime is happening at a phenomenal pace of half-a–million per minute!

Increased digitisation of personal and commercial finances has opened up billions of opportunities for the criminal minds. “Wanna Cry” and “Petya” are the latest in a series of cyber attacks this year, once again highlighting the urgent and continuous attention to the vulnerabilities of the

Ask parents what they’re most worried about regarding the wellness of their children as a new school year begins, and stress and anxiety are high on the list. So are obesity and lack of exercise, along with smoking and alcohol and drug use.

But for several years, the top answer is the same: bullying and cyber-bullying.

C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health at the University of Michigan found that one in three parents are concerned about their child being bullied or cyber-bullied. 

Bullying is the
