Are You a Victim of Cyber Flashing?

You may not be aware of AirDrop, but this feature was introduced in 2015 by Apple that allows users to send images to people through an iPhone. The problem is you may receive an obscene image from an unknown person on your iPhone, and this is known as Cyber Flashing.

Cyber Flashing is sending unwanted vulgar photos, or videos over the phone to a person close by, in an unrestricted area. It is usually sent incognito and can be seen as sexual harassment. It can be even more problematic when the image is sent to a minor, which can be seen as a criminal act.

Policymakers in New York City are presently looking to introduce a bill that would criminalize cyber flashing.  This bill would make it a misdemeanor for a person to send an unsolicited sexually explicit video or image to another person with intent to harass, annoy or alarm such other person. The bill would impose a penalty of up to one year in jail, or a fine of up to $1,000, or both.

In the meantime, you can stop cyber flashing from happening to you. To do so, check your settings. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen and get the pull-up menu where the Flashlight and Bluetooth settings hide. In the bottom left of the screen, you will see AirDrop. Click it and turn it off or set it to Contacts only.

Virtual Book Tour - Meet Van Fleisher, Author of Final Notice


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Van Fleisher will be awarding a $50 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.


The year is the very near future. A brilliant young doctor and mathematician, Vijay Patel, has invented a new health/sport watch that monitors blood chemistry so accurately, it can actually predict when someone will die – within 10, 20, or 30 days. The intention of this “Final Notice,” as it is called, is to allow people to get their affairs in order and reach out to loved ones before it’s too late. But when those notified have easy access to a gun, the result is sometimes lethal for more than just the watch-owner.


These are the stories of several people who receive their Final Notice and their very different reactions ... including a desire to get revenge with impunity. They range from an 89-year-old resident in a retirement home to a U.S. Senator...from a benevolent widow to a crass tycoon to a noted climate change scientist.


But in this fresh, fast-paced page-turner, their stories are all set against the all-too-recognizable backdrop of a guns-gone-wild America, and the relentless push by the NRA and their surrogate politicians to make guns even easier to acquire.


There is plenty of dark humor and political satire in FINAL NOTICE, as well as touching scenes and outright suspense. So expect to laugh out loud, dry some tears, and bite your nails (not necessarily in that order).


Read an Excerpt:

And sure enough, in 1.24 seconds, Trudi had 1,620,000 results. “Here it is. California law protects us if we shoot a burglar in our home. Still, it wouldn’t help if we didn’t hear them until they burst into the room. I can’t see either one of us having the presence of mind to reach for the gun, roll out of bed and blast away. What are you smiling at?”


“At the image of you doing just that!”


“Hey. I’ve been watching Angelina Jolie and I think I can manage the moves.”


About the Author:


“After 21 years with an airline, and 30 years in management consulting, I retired and found that my phone didn’t ring and the only emails I got were asking for money. So, since I was at my computer, I decided to write a novel.”


This is only half the story. (Van is notoriously modest.) The author was Director of International Marketing with TWA, and an International Management Consultant – taking him behind the closed doors of boardrooms and executive offices around the world. He knows how business works, which gives the slightly “sci-fi” premise of Final Notice a realistic feel. Moreover, his two careers led him to live abroad for much of his life. After growing up in New Jersey and Florida, where he never thought much further than the length of a football field, and going to college in New Mexico, he wound up living in England, Scotland and France, travelling frequently to the Middle East and Asia. He even spent a year living in India. And his first-hand experience with – and respect for – other cultures is apparent in this book.


“Final Notice is meant to highlight, my concerns with America’s handling of three important issues: gun control (not anti-gun), ageism and the importance of immigration. The book won’t fix these issues, but there are a number of great organizations with even greater people working on our behalf to right these wrongs. Proceeds from sales of Final Notice will help support those efforts.”

Why Some Relationships Fail by Vivienne Diane Neal


If anything has had an impact on relationships is the onset of social media. There were times when people had to guess what was going on behind locked doors when it came to people’s love life. With the arrival of social networks, nothing seems to be sacred anymore. Some people love putting their personal business and risqué images of themselves on these sites.

Maintaining a good relationship is complicated enough. Why add more turmoil to your love life by bringing social media into the picture.

Most people couldn’t care less about whom you met online, slept with, or your latest conquest. The fights you have with your significant other or whom you kicked to the curb are private matters and don’t belong on the Internet for the whole world to witness. And whatever you post on these sites remains there without end.

The next time you want to post your private business on the Internet, you may want to think twice because you could end up hurting yourself and others, or wind up facing a lawsuit.
