PSA Shows Potential Dangers to Kids on the Internet

internet safety in france psa

Apparently parents haven’t been too concerned about kids’ safety on the internet because I’m afraid some unpleasant things have been taking place in France, and Europe in general. I don’t know the specifics and we probably don’t really WANT to know what’s been going on, but the government is on to something and has produced some public service announcements called ““Où est Arthur ? La sécurité des enfants et des adolescents sur internet”” (Where is Arthur? Childrens’ and Teenagers’ Safety on the Internet). The spots have been translated in 12 European languages and will be airing on TV and radio during Christmas time.

This PSA, created by Le ministre du travail, des relations sociales, de la famille et de la solidarité, should be a frightening reminder to parents that there are lots and lots and LOTS of scary and CRAZY people out there that can easily get into contact with their kids. Beware, please! Click on the photo above or here to watch the video.

American Expats: What to do if You Didn’t Receive Your Absentee Ballot

If you haven’t received your absentee ballot to vote for U.S. President, don’t worry, you can still fax in your vote. You still have to mail in your vote as well. To note: when you fax your vote, you obviously relinquish your rights to a secret ballot, which is no big deal, really. Go to this site and it’ll take you through the simple and necessary steps to get your ballot out.

I read in Le Monde that 93% surveyed in France would vote for Obama; which is also similar to worldwide polls. Will the whole world be in a collective emotional depression if McCain wins? Yes.
