teens_on_phones

Keeping track of which apps are dangerous for kids has become somewhat of a full-time job for parents. Once you figure out how one app works, another one is introduced. Who knows what impact each new app could have on your family?

This week we will talk about the latest apps and chat rooms that kids are gravitating towards including live streaming technology. We will also talk about some of the slang they use to hide their conversations from adults.

We will also talk about how to keep your kids safe in a world of artificial intelligence where your every click, search and location are being sold, as a profile about you is simultaneously being developed.

We will discuss:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • APPS:  Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Kik, GroupMe, WhatsApp, Musical.ly, Tumblr, Grindr
  • VIDEO CHAT ROOMS: Omega, HouseParty, Live.ly, Live.Me, You.Now
  • SELF-DESTRUCTING/SECRET APPS: Snapchat, Whisper
  • CHATTING, MEETING, AND DATING APPS AND SITES: Monkey, MeetMe, Yubo
  • Slang used by teens

Join us Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as host, Opal Singleton, helps adults to understand some of the apps, chat rooms, live streaming technology and slang that teens use today and how predators roam about these same virtual places seeking vulnerable kids to exploit.

Together they run California Youth Outreach, an organization dedicated to reaching out to all gang-impacted youth, their families, and their communities through education services, intervention programs and resource opportunities that support a positive and healthy lifestyle.

This week, host Opal Singleton, and Anthony Ortiz Jr. will talk about how gangs are reorganizing territories based on social media and sex trafficking. How gangs recruit young people and how to help kids stay out of or get out of a gang.

The REAL statistics of runaway youth in America

 

homeless_youth

Do you Want to make a positive difference in someone’s life?  Listen to this show. 

Foster kids, group home kids, runaway and pregnant kids are some of the most vulnerable and easily seduced youth on the face of the earth. The foster care system is one of the most complex issues facing our society today. Statistics indicate that more than 60% of youth in commercial sex (prostitution) come from the foster care system. These kids are available and vulnerable. Pimps and predators come in as “Daddy” and offer the role of protector… the very thing these kids crave in their lives.

This week we will take a hard look at the “REAL” statistics of runaway youth in America. We will explore how the welfare system grooms young people for exploitation.  And, we will talk extensively about what churches and organizations can do to intervene. Finally, we will talk about the needs of kids in foster care.

Join us Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as host, Opal Singleton, exposes how circumstances that put minors into foster care often are the same factors that make them vulnerable to sex traffickers and what you can do to change their path.

Live Streaming Sextortion: Why Victims Won’t Tell

nine-apps

Live streaming apps like Omegle and Live.Me are providing a whole new level of access to our kids. Live.Me is a relatively new app with about one hundred MILLION users. It has a geotracking function that alerts people nearby when you are broadcasting. Pedophiles have been using this app to encourage kids as young as 7 years old with virtual currency to grind, strip and photograph themselves provocatively. The app advertises itself as a way for kids, tweens, teenagers, to be a star. Anyone can watch and record you and there is no age restriction. You do not have to add someone for them to follow you. They can select your live stream and watch your stream and communicate with you via text.

This show will explore how pedophiles are using the latest technologies to seduce and groom our kids. We will discuss why kids won’t or don’t tell by examining the psychological impact of shame on a pre pubescent child and how they trauma bond with the pedophile. We will analyze how this affects their perception of self worth and sexual relationships.  We will also probe real cases to see how vile this can get. Finally, we will delve into the need for parents and teachers to understand what happens to a naked photo of a victim of sextortion.

Join us Thursday, June 7, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as host, Opal Singleton, exposes the world of live streaming.

The Role of The Intelligence Analyst in Crime Solving

crime-analysts

Few people understand the vast amount of effort that takes place in developing a criminal case and bringing it to the point of apprehension and prosecution. This week we will be exploring what a Crime Analyst does and the critical importance of building an intelligence profile in developing a case.

Crime Analysts will become the most sought after talent for law enforcement in the next decade. A Crime Analyst builds the foundation for potential cases by looking at a wide rage of data, including public records, financial, business and legal documentation, as well as cellphone and social media activity. They watch for patterns and trends, are meticulous, insightful, possess critical thinking skills, and exercise excellent judgement.

Intelligence is key to building a solid case. The challenge for the next decade of crime solving will be the changing social media landscape, which can both enhance intelligence gathering and also prevent easy access to data through technologies like encryption, crypto currency, disappearing video and live streaming. This show will address the powerful role Crime Analysts will play in the next generation of crime solving and help the public understand the challenges in building a strong and successful criminal case.

Join us Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we explore what a Crime Analyst does and the critical importance of building an intelligence profile in developing a case.
