Consumer Alert: Surf safely on social networks

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AG Office) - While social networking and other public Internet sites provide a sense of connection and social interactivity, these sites can create a false sense of security and anonymity online. For children, these sites can pose a threat as online predators use them as a portal for finding victims.
 
As part of National Internet Safety Month, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel released online safety tips for parents and their children engaged in social networking.
 
"I met with an Arkansas mother whose teen daughter was killed by a man police believe lured the girl using a social networking site," McDaniel said. "As a parent, I'm horrified that someone would reach our vulnerable children in this way. As Attorney General, I want to do everything I can to make sure other parents don't face the nightmare that the mother I met is enduring."

Give the gift of life on World Blood Donor Day

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 14, 2012) - World Blood Donor Day is an opportunity to celebrate the role of volunteer blood donors around the world. 

According to the World Blood Donor Day website, 92 million blood donations are made worldwide each year.  In the Greater Ozarks-Arkansas region, nearly 500 blood donors are needed each day to help meet the needs of area hospital patients.

Volunteer blood donors help the American Red Cross supply around nine million transfusable blood products to patients at approximately 3,000 hospitals and transfusion centers across the United States.

World Blood Donor Day is also designed to raise awareness about the need for safe blood and blood products.  Efforts to ensure donor and recipient safety have reduced the population of eligible voluntary blood donors.
