Identity Theft and Equifax:
Nothing is safe. just recently, Equifax said 'oops we've been hacked.' Equifax is one of three major US credit reporting companies, responsible for things like calculating your credit score. Earlier this year, hackers broke into Equifax's data through a website "vulnerability." And stole the personal info of around 143 million people - almost half of the US population. They got their hands on Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and even some driver's license and credit card numbers. Those two Yahoo breaches that came out last year are still the biggest ever. But this one has everyone on edge because of all the personal info that could be exposed. Experts say the hackers could sell this data to shady people, which could put consumers' identities at risk. Equifax says it's called in law enforcement and a cybersecurity firm to look into this. In the meantime, the company has set up a website to check if you're on of the millions impacted: https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/

You can also enroll in complementary identity theft protection and credit monitoring on the same site, regardless of whether your info is determined to be at risk or not.

Study on Preventing Bullying of Tenants:
The Executive Office of Health and Human Services (Boston, MA) and the Commission to Study Ways to Prevent Bullying of Tenants in Public and Subsidized Multi-Family Housing (chapter 2 of the Resolves of 2016) is requesting your assistance in its work to better understand the underlying issues of bullying in public and subsidized multi-family housing, the prevalence of bullying and the avenues by which people who are bullied seek help.
