(U.K.) #HomelessChristmas Nearly 600 Homeless people died on the streets last year and figures begin to suggest this figure is rising with the mean average age being 44 and the highest being situated in North West and London #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReports – Dec.20: Nearly 600 homeless people died on the streets last year, according to government figures: The North West of England and London had the highest mortality rates………..This is the first time the ONS has recorded the number of rough sleeper deaths across England and Wales #AceNewsDesk reports

597: homeless people died in England and Wales in 2017

119 homeless people died in the North West in 2017

44 mean age at death for homeless people

ONS INTERIM DATA REPORT: Office for National Statistics (ONS) is currently producing experimental data on the deaths of homeless people in England and Wales, which it plans to publish later this year: The figures will act as a measure for the number of rough sleepers and night shelter and hostel users that die each year and will improve understanding of how and why homeless people die………………The work is a reflection of our strategic commitment to produce helpful analyses on a wide range of important public policy issues, to aid decision-makers.

ONS Deputy Director for Health Analysis and Life Events, Ben Humberstone, said: “In order to produce new data, we look at other sources of information from a variety of organisations, government departments and stakeholders……….“In this case, we have looked at a crowdsourced database set up by the Bureau for Investigative Journalism in partnership with Channel 4 News and compared that information with our own figures, collected from death registrations. This is to find out whether it would be possible to produce accurate estimates of the deaths of homeless people, their characteristics and what they have died of…………….“Information gathered by outside organisations like these is not used for our official statistics, but it helps us develop the most accurate method of identifying all the deaths that should be counted………“Although this is a new area of data collection, we have a responsibility to ensure it meets the same high standards of quality, accuracy, confidentiality and security as the rest of our work.”

Over half of all deaths of homeless people in 2017 were due to three factors: accidents (including drug poisoning) accounted for 40%, suicides accounted for 13% and diseases of the liver accounted for 9%.

Every year hundreds of people die while homeless. These are some of the most vulnerable members of our society so it was vital that we produced estimates of sufficient quality to properly shine a light on this critical issue. 

Our findings show a pattern of deaths among homeless people that is strikingly different from the general population

But classmates found a Facebook profile in the boy’s name, showing him with a full beard, a hairy chest and swigging a bottle of beer.

The profile described him as a former architecture student at the Islamic Azad University in Abadan, Iran, who had lived in Erfurt, Germany. 

A girl at the school said: ‘Everyone was making jokes as we went into registration, saying, “What is a man doing at our school?” 

‘He started FaceTiming my friend, sending her messages, asking how close she lived to the school.

‘She was a bit concerned because he seemed so old. He kept messaging her during the night, and in the morning he texted her saying, “Hello, how are you?”

‘She told the maths teacher and was taken to the safeguarding teacher who looked at the messages and said there was nothing sinister about them.’

Last week a pupil posted a Snapchat picture of the ‘boy’ at school with a caption, saying: ‘How’s there a 30-year-old man in our maths class?’

The picture circulated on social media, leading to other parents demanding the pupil be kicked out. The Home Office is investigating.

(U.K.) Foot & Mouth Disease: Parents are warned to check for signs and symptoms are most common in children under 10 years of age after highly-contagious virus has been spreading after a string of cases according to M.E.N. Heres what to look for and what to do #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReports – Oct.25: Parents are being urged to check for signs of hand, foot and mouth disease in their children after a string of casesThe childhood illness is caused by a virus and is most common in children under 10: First signs of the disease include a high temperature, loss of appetite, a cough and a sore throat and mouth: A couple of days later red spots appear on the tongue and inside of the mouth: These can quickly develop into painful ulcers which can make eating and drinking difficult, reports M.E.N. Soon after, you may notice a rash to the skin – made up of small red raised spots and typically developing on the fingers and hands and the soles of the feet #AceNewsDesk reports 

Signs of foot and mouth in children

These may turn to blisters with a greyish centre and can become itchy and uncomfortable: Health bosses are urging parents to look out for signs of the disease after a spate of recent cases in the north of the country………………And they’re reminding families how to prevent it from spreading.

Symptoms of foot and mouth …. Paediatric nurse practitioner Janine Parry said: “Hand, foot and mouth is a common viral infection in children under 10, which is usually mild and clears up on its own within a week to 10 days……………….“The symptoms can include a temperature over 38 degrees, loss of appetite, a cough and a sore throat and mouth. After a few days red spots will develop on the tongue and inside of the mouth, which can turn into painful ulcers………..“You may also notice a red raised spotty rash on the skin and blisters on the hands and feet, which may be itchy or uncomfortable.” 

She added: “The best advice is to keep your child at home and hydrated until they’re feeling better. Soft foods and paracetamol can also help if your child has a sore mouth and throat: “If the symptoms don’t improve after a week to 10 days you should seek appropriate medical advice. You should also seek advice if your child shows signs of dehydration, has fits, a very high temperature, is unusually tired or unrousable, or if their skin becomes painful, red, swollen or hot to touch.”

Signs of foot and mouth in children

To help prevent the spread ensure you wash your hands and disinfect contaminated surfaces. Avoid allowing your child to share dummies and cups and wash clothing and bedding regularly……………Children are safe to return to school or nursery as soon as they are feeling better there is no need to stay off until the blisters have all healed as with viruses such as chicken pox………………As it is caused by a virus there is no cure and antibiotics won’t help. You can normally manage your child at home and it should clear on its own.

How to treat hand, foot and mouth

  • Keep them at home until they are feeling better.
  • Keep them hydrated – Offer plenty of fluids and give younger children smaller, more frequent feeds.
  • Offer soft foods. This will help if your child is experiencing a sore mouth or throat from the ulcers.
  • Give Paracetamol to relieve pain and discomfort related to temperature (always follow the instructions on the box). 
  • Signs of foot and mouth in children

Although most cases won’t need medical attention it is important to see a Doctor or Nurse if your child displays the following symptoms:

  • Stops drinking or displays any signs of dehydration (Dry lips, mouth and eyes, reduced urine output, no tears when crying, sunken soft spot (in babies)).
  • Has an altered conscious level (unusually tired or unrousable).
  • Experiences seizures (fits).
  • Is under 3 months and has a temperature of over 38 degrees.
  • Is aged 3-6 months with a temperature of 39 degrees and above.
  • If the skin becomes very painful, red, swollen, hot to touch or discharges puss.
  • If symptoms don’t improve after 7-10 days.

(WASHINGTON) HUD Files Lawsuit Against ‘ Facebook ‘ on Friday over violating the ‘ Fair Housing Act ‘ that ‘ Allows Landlords and Home Sellers ‘ to use ‘ Target ed Advertising ‘ to discriminate against potential buyers or tenants based on race, sex, religion, disability or other characteristics … Facebook responded with stock phrase there is no place for discrimination on Facebook #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReports – Aug.18: The agency filed a formal complaint against the social media company on Friday, alleging that it allows landlords and home sellers to use targeted Facebook (FB) ads to discriminate against potential buyers or tenants on the basis of race, sex, religion, disability and other characteristics: “When Facebook uses the vast amount of personal data it collects to help advertisers to discriminate, it’s the same as slamming the door in someone’s face,” Anna María Farías, assistant secretary for fair housing and equal opportunity, said in a statement #AceNewsDesk reports

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced today a formal complaint against Facebook for violating the Fair Housing Act by allowing landlords and home sellers to use its advertising platform to engage in housing discrimination.

HUD claims Facebook enables advertisers to control which users receive housing-related ads based upon the recipient’s race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, disability, and/or zip code. Facebook then invites advertisers to express unlawful preferences by offering discriminatory options, allowing them to effectively limit housing options for these protected classes under the guise of ‘targeted advertising.’ Read HUD’s complaint against Facebook.

“The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination including those who might limit or deny housing options with a click of a mouse,” said Anna María Farías, HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. “When Facebook uses the vast amount of personal data it collects to help advertisers to discriminate, it’s the same as slamming the door in someone’s face.”

The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing transactions including print and online advertisement on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or familial status. HUD’s Secretary-initiated complaint follows the Department’s investigation into Facebook’s advertising platform which includes targeting tools that enable advertisers to filter prospective tenants or homebuyers based on these protected classes.

For example, HUD’s complaint alleges Facebook’s platform violates the Fair Housing Act. It enables advertisers to, among other things:

  • display housing ads either only to men or women;
  • not show ads to Facebook users interested in an “assistance dog,” “mobility scooter,” “accessibility” or “deaf culture”;
  • not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “child care” or “parenting,” or show ads only to users with children above a specified age;
  • to display/not display ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in a particular place of worship, religion or tenet, such as the “Christian Church,” “Sikhism,” “Hinduism,” or the “Bible.”
  • not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “Latin America,” “Canada,” “Southeast Asia,” “China,” “Honduras,” or “Somalia.”
  • draw a red line around zip codes and then not display ads to Facebook users who live in specific zip codes.

Additionally, Facebook promotes its advertising targeting platform for housing purposes with “success stories” for finding “the perfect homeowners,” “reaching home buyers,” “attracting renters” and “personalizing property ads.”

In addition, today the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) filed a statement of interest, joined in by HUD, in U.S. District Court on behalf of a number of private litigants challenging Facebook’s advertising platform.

HUD Secretary-Initiated Complaints

The Secretary of HUD may file a fair housing complaint directly against those whom the Department believes may be in violation of the Fair Housing Act. Secretary-Initiated Complaints are appropriate in cases, among others, involving significant issues that are national in scope or when the Department is made aware of potential violations of the Act and broad public interest relief is warranted or where HUD does not know of a specific aggrieved person or injured party that is willing or able to come forward. A Fair Housing Act complaint, including a Secretary initiated complaint, is not a determination of liability.

A Secretary-Initiated Complaint will result in a formal fact-finding investigation. The party against whom the complaint is filed will be provided notice and an opportunity to respond. If HUD’s investigation results in a determination that reasonable cause exists that there has been a violation of the Fair Housing Act, a charge of discrimination may be filed. Throughout the process, HUD will seek conciliation and voluntary resolution. Charges may be resolved through settlement, through referral to the Department of Justice, or through an administrative determination.

Persons who believe they have experienced discrimination may file a complaint by contacting HUD’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity at (800) 669-9777 (voice) or (800) 927-9275 (TTY).

CNN reported that Facebook responded to the allegation with a statement insisting that “there is no place for discrimination on Facebook; it’s strictly prohibited in our policies. Over the past year we’ve strengthened our systems to further protect against misuse… and we’ll continue working directly with HUD to address their concerns.”

The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits home rental and sale advertisements from discriminating “based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.”

In its complaint, the federal housing agency outlined several ways landlords or sellers can use Facebook ads to do just that. They could, for example, decide to show the ads to only men, or ensure that their ads don’t appear in the feeds of anyone with “accessibility” listed as an interest.

The National Fair Housing Alliance made the same argument in a federal lawsuit against the social media company. The case, filed in March in New York City, claims that Facebook’s advertising tools continue to allow marketers to exclude women and families with children from seeing certain housing ads.

Diane L. Houk, one of the attorneys who filed that suit, called Friday’s complaint “a very important step by HUD to enforce the Fair Housing Act.”

HUD and the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York also filed documents bolstering the suit brought by the housing advocates. In a statement of interest filed with the court, they rejected Facebook’s argument that it is protected from the federal housing law by the Communications Decency Act, which limits the liability of website operators.

The government argued that Facebook should in this case be classified as an internet content provider and is therefore subject to the Fair Housing Act.

Facebook said it “will respond in court” to the statement of interest

Some of the details outlined in the HUD complaint, such as accusations of exclusion based on religion or an interest in “deaf culture” do not appear in the lawsuit filed by the National Fair Housing Alliance.

Houk said it is “very troubling to see that these categories are still available,” especially “given the amount of public statements and coverage … over the last two years.”

According to the HUD complaint, the alleged violations occurred as recently as last month. But Facebook has faced such accusations since 2016, when ProPublica reported posting an ad for a housing event that it requested not be shown to anyone with what Facebook’s ad tool callsan “ethnic affinity” of African-American, Asian-American or Hispanic.

“Our policies prohibit using our targeting options to discriminate, and they require compliance with the law,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement at the time. “We take prompt enforcement action when we determine that ads violate our policies.”

ProPublica said last year that it was able to buy dozens of home rental advertisements targeted toward audiences that specifically excluded “African Americans, mothers of high school kids, people interested in wheelchair ramps, Jews, expats from Argentina and Spanish speakers.”
