Here are some tips to help you lock down your laptop and keep your data secure. • When traveling, don’t use a laptop carrying case or bag; it’s a dead giveaway as to what’s inside. Instead, use a briefcase or regular piece of luggage and retrofit it as needed. • The use of visual deterrents may help Encrypt your data. That way, even if the laptop is stolen, nobody else will be able to read the data on it. A scare thieves away from your machine. There are companies that sell security plates that attach to your laptop, complete with barcodes and printed warnings stating that the laptop is constantly monitored. • Get laptop insurance. Popular policies start at $200 per year. • Install tracking software. These services cost about $45 a year. Once the software is installed, your computer can be remotely tracked. Some tracking services even re- motely erase your hard drive if you report an unrecoverable theft. • Another option is investing in an alarm system. Some sound a 110dB (that’s loud!) alarm if a stainless-steel cable is cut or activated by a motion detector. • Encrypt your data. That way, even if the laptop is stolen, nobody else will be able to read the data on it – and that data is, in most cases, far more valuable than the hardware. • In public places such as airports and convention centres, if you are forced to put your laptop on the floor, loop the strap of the bag around one ankle. This will prevent graband-dash thievery. • Check with your employer’s IT or security group to make sure you’re following company rules on laptops. In the wake of huge losses of sensitive information, many organizations have enacted guidelines on what data should reside on a laptop. 8 • CFB Esquimalt / MARPAC Activity Guide

Slide 23: HEAD LICE - what you need to know Dr. Mickey Lester is a consulting pediatrician for the Hospital for Sick Children and assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Toronto. He also has a thriving private pediatric practice in Mississauga. Dr. Lester offers his insights for parents on “everything you wish you didn’t have to know about head lice.” How do head lice spread? Can they jump from one person to another? Head lice are wingless. They cannot fly or jump, but only crawl. They are spread through close headto-head contact or by coming in contact with objects where lice have been deposited, such as scarves, head bands, hats, brushes and combs. How can I tell if my child has head lice? The diagnosis of an “active” lice infestation can only be made by identifying a living louse in the hair. Lice are reddish brown in colour and are about the size of a sesame seed. They lay eggs called nits. Nits are “glued” to a hair shaft. The presence of nits alone does not indicate an active infestation. Nits are often mistaken for dandruff or sand, application takes just 10 minutes. A second application is recommended one week later. Follow the usage guidelines exactly as directed. Side effects are extremely uncommon and usually consist of a mild itchy rash on the scalp, which usually disappears within a day or so. Should all family members be treated? Treat all family members who have live lice. Family members with nits only need not be treated. Each member of the family should be checked on a daily basis for 10 to 14 days, and they should be treated only if a live louse is found. Are there any home remedies for head lice? Home remedies, such as “natural” and alternative products, include mineral oil, coconut oil shampoo, tea tree oil, and petroleum jelly, to name a few. These products have been tried but have never proven to be as effective as the over-the-counter treatments specifically designed to kill lice. Article courtesy of MediResource Inc. Always discuss treatments with your physician or other qualified health care professional first. but unlike these materials, they stick firmly to the hair shaft and are difficult to remove. To check for lice, divide the hair into sections and look carefully, one section at a time. Magnifying glasses may help. The “head hunt” should be done in a well-lit room. Pay close attention to the areas behind the ears and the nape of the neck. How are head lice treated? There are commercial products available that have been designed to kill lice. They can be purchased over the counter. A product called Resultz™ (isopropyl myristate 50 per cent) has been shown to be effective in treating head lice at any stage in their development once hatched. It is free of traditional insecticides, odourless, and colourless, and each Dr. Keith Martin Member of Parliament Your Voice in Ottawa 666 Granderson Road, V9B 2R8 250-474-6505: Fax: 250-474-5322; martikl@parl.gc.ca Dr. Keith Martin, MP www.KeithMartin.org Harvest Valley Foods B.B.Q. season is here and with the purchase of any of our five size food orders, we will include a B.B.Q.

Home emergency supplies are more substantial and should be sufficient to last for up to a week. Many emergencies are predictable and/or seasonal and allow some preparation while many others are without warning and may include mass evacuation requirements.

Slide 48: Raise resilient children in a military family The military lifestyle can be challenging for families. Parents often seek assistance to find strategies to help their children learn to manage and cope with feelings related to stress. These stresses can relate to relocation, separation from parents and friends, deployments and fitting into a new school. Parents can help their children to develop resilience, which is an ability to manage feelings and cope with everyday stresses and major life events. Have you ever wondered why some people are able to “swim along” through tough times while others “nearly sink?” People who are resilient are able to bounce back after experiencing stress. Research has found that they tend to have positive relationships, better health and longer lives. In the military lifestyle parents and their children experience multiple stresses related to change and the need to adapt to new circumstances. Helping children to develop resilience is particularly important because in this lifestyle, children are often faced with the need to adapt to several changes at the same time. The Triple P Parenting Program offered at the MFRC provides tips to parents on a variety of parenting strategies and suggests that it is important to teach children to become resilient. Parents can teach their children how to recognize, understand and accept their feelings and to express feelings in appropriate ways. Parents can also help children to develop a positive outlook by modeling optimism. During stressful life events like relocation or separation, parents can teach their children coping skills. “Children imitate the thinking habits of adults around them. When parents model resilient thinking, they are going a long way toward promoting resilience in their children,” from www.reachinginreachingout.com. For more information on Triple P please check out www.triplep.net. Other great websites that promote resilience in children are kidshavestresstoo.org and reachinginreachingout.com. NO PRESSURE.

Slide 53: Dodge cancer with Vitamin D Recent headlines have brought forward promising news for yet another way to prevent cancer. It is known by most people that 50 per cent of cancers are preventable through various lifestyle choices, and new research has found that vitamin D also plays a role in preventing the disease. The study is saying that if you live in the northern latitudes (this includes all of Canada), you may be able to cut your risk for cancer in half by increasing your intake of vitamin D. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, in June of 2007, found that women with lower r vitamin D intake showed a greater risk for cancer. The four-year, double blind, randomized study (highly credible), looked at cancer risk in nearly 1,200 healthy post-menopausal women. Those who took a combination of calcium and vitamin D supplements reduced their risk by half compared to the placebo group and the group that took calcium alone. In response to this study and others that have correlated vitamin D to a decreased risk for colorectal and prostate cancers, the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is now recommending that adults living in Canada consider supplementing with 1,000 IU of vitamin D daily during the Fall and Winter months. This is more than double the previously recommended dosage of between 200 and 400 IU daily. According to Heather Logan, the CCS’s director of cancer control policy, “The current evidence suggests the 1,000 IU daily dose will help reduce cancer risk with the least potential for harm. More research is needed to clearly define the amount that will have the highest health benefits and if there are any risks associated with a higher intake of vitamin D.” Vitamin D is also known to play an important role in the prevention of osteoporosis and multiple sclerosis and helping to relieve joint damage due to arthritis. Although we can also get vitamin D through sun exposure during the summer months, the Canadian Cancer Society has not reversed its statements on avoiding unprotected sun because of the concomitant risks for skin cancer. While the Society recommends getting our daily dose of vitamin D from supplements, good food source sources are available which include mushrooms, liv cod liver oil, eggs, tuna, mackerel, salmon, and sardine sardines. Salmon, mushrooms and eggs are good sources of Vitamin D, which has proven to help prevent cancer.

Slide 54: Museum Boatswains brush up museum kisby rings Sailors are justly famous for their ropework, and for their love of keeping things shipshape. So when a series of kisby liferings displayed along the exterior of the museum at Naden started to look a bit shabby, the museum turned to the Fleet School for assistance. The request met with a great response from BOSN QL5 course instructors and students, who were eager to help refurbish the 14 kisby rings that normally hang outside Buildings N37 and N39. Many of the kisby rings lacked ropework trim of any kind. Others featured ornate ropework rosettes and other flourishes that had become dilapidated over time and exposure to the elements. The museum, being mindful of the Navy’s upcoming centennial and the anticipated increase in visitors the 100th anniversary celebrations will bring, wanted to put its best foot forward by improving the look of the kisby rings. It found a willing partner in Fleet School’s PO Andre Leger, who was quick to adopt the project and put it forward to the BOSN QL5 course students. They in turn opted as a class to give the kisby rings the full treatment, including blue and white ropework rosettes for the centre of each ring, and 4-strand flat braid with thumb knots for the circumference. By taking such pride in their handiwork, the students will help convey to museum visitors a sense of sailorly traditions and skills, traditions and skills that are still being fostered today. The kisby rings project is also an opportunity to reciprocate support to Fleet School, since the museum’s volunteer guides regularly provide tours for Fleet School students to share with them the Navy’s history on Canada’s West Coast. CFB Esquimalt Naval and Mili- tary Museum is sincerely grateful for the contribution of all concerned, including LS Jarvis Rumbolt, who is currently assisting in the museum workshop in N29, and who was instrumental in getting the kisby rings ready for the project.
