6 Most Common Forms of Child Exploitation

Children are very vulnerable, every child deserves to grow up healthy and safe from harm. The early years of a child’s life are very crucial to their physical and mental health development.
Poverty is a major cause of child exploitation. Negligence, cruelty, abuse and violence are activities that cause detrimental effects to a child’s physical or mental health, education, social and moral development. To protect and help an abused child, it is important to seek legal advice from one of the best law firms like Appleton criminal defense lawyer. Expert legal practitioners can best handle and defend cases and other encountered situations about child abuse.

Below are 7 of the most common forms of child exploitation:
Sexual Exploitation
This is when a minor child is used and forced to take part or engage in a sexual activity. Other examples of an actual act of sexual abuse are:

- child pornography
- rape
- incest
- sexual slavery
Child Labor
Forcing a child to work deprives him/her of her childhood, dignity and potential. Some of these abused children are exposed to extreme and dangerous work that exceeds reasonable hours. Examples of child labor are:
- children working in mines, factories and construction
- children working in agriculture
- domestic servitude or live-in help
Child Marriage
Though we are already living in the cyber era, forced child marriage is still practiced in some countries. This harmful practice is a clear violation of human rights, preventing girls from living their lives freely. It takes away not only the girl’s childhood but her future as well.
Child Soldiers
Gangs and non-state armed groups are forcing  children in the military. This practice has been running in some cultures for so many years. Children have been taught how to fire guns and have been involved and participated in armed conflicts.
Forced Criminality
Organized group of criminals are forcing children to commit different crimes by street begging, pick-pocketing, bag snatching and theft.
Organ Trafficking
Because no one is too young to be an organ donor, there are plenty of reports that some groups of criminal gangs are operating in organ trade. Criminal networks increasingly engage in kidnappings, especially of children and harvesting their organs for sale on the black market.

Why I Always Buy Hair Products From LilyHair

There are thousands of hair product brands worldwide, but I prefer to buy my luxury hair products in LilyHair. A lot of my friends ask me why I always choose LilyHair, I tell them: Because, this particular brand really knows my desire of hair products.

Being a big fond of different hairstyles, it is very important for me to select and use a premium hair product brand. Finding the best one is not easy as I have to try different product brands from time to time. While I was browsing hair care products from Pinterest, I stumbled on LilyHair. And from then on, I continue using it. 

Here are some important points that I think will do help you know more about LilyHair.
  • Professional
History: LilyHair has 17 years-experience in manufacturing hair products having its specific signature hair technique.  They have developed their own R&D system, production system, QC system and after-sales service system. Their products are mainly sold to the high-end European and American market. Also, they have a whole complete production system to meet the individual hairstyle needs. As a direct to consumer company with no middlemen, LilyHair passes on the savings direct to us.

Quality: Unlike synthetic or remy hair, LilyHair uses the gold standard hair material - virgin hair, which provides the undetectable hair look and fantastic touch feeling. Also the hair extensions varies from 120 to 240 grams, so it meets different requirements of hair density and length.

  • Possibility
Customize: The flexible choice on hairstyle,hair color, hair length is so nice for me to give me enough space to make incredible hairstyles and I would never DIY to dye or cut hair. I have failed several times in dying my hair, so as cutting hair. Thus,to be honest I want to remind every girl that if possible, just let such difficult stuff to pro hairstylists. 

Design: I do love their fantastic design of hair extensions, especially the flip in hair extensions (holo hair extensions), the extra clips on the magic band is so stunning design, which means you could use this innovative flip in hair extensions as clip in hair extension if you want.

  • Patient
Service Team: Lilyhair has a quick-response customer service team to offer you professional and useful suggestions. It is very comfortable to work with them, some times I customized my hair wigs in color, they are so patient to send me the color in different light that ensure the color would turn out as I want. I think they are the most professional and patient service team among all the hair product service teams I ever met, especially Jennie, she is so kind. She's the one who always reminds me when will my expected package would arrive.
  • Price
Affordable: Never sacrifice the quality as to save money. LilyHair provides price-friendly hair extensions, hair wigs, hair toppers, which is completely affordable starting from $60. It is a lot cheaper as other websites mostly set higher than $120. The service team told me that their price is  factory-direct, they don’t let any third party to add to the selling process, so the price could be so nice and affordable for their customers. Not only because of the price but I should say quality wise  LilyHair Deserves to Have A Look.

3 Ways to Send Faxes with an Online Fax Service

fax service

Did you know that you don’t need a fax machine to fax anymore?  Perhaps you’ve used a thousand times and you’ve grown accustomed to it, but you don’t need to keep using outdated technology. The new way to fax is digital, and has proven to be a faster and more cost-effective alternative to the traditional method.

Online fax services mix the convenience of communicating digitally with the reliability and security of faxing.  One of the biggest perks of using these services is that they provide different ways to send fax without having to rely on a fax machine and without incurring in the costs of a dedicated fax line.

Sending a fax doesn’t have to a frustrating experience.  If you are still using your fax machine you’ll notice that these methods are very easy to use and don’t need any type of advanced knowledge from your part.  Let’s take a look at them

1. Using Your Email

This is the most common way to send faxes online.  Once you sign up with an online fax service, they will hook a virtual fax line to your email, so you can send faxes the same way you send an email.

It’s a very easy process, with only minor differences to sending a common email and it works with all kinds of email addresses, including free ones such as Outlook, Yahoo Mail and Gmail. This tutorial has more details on how to send your first fax from email.

Basically, you compose a new email and attach the file you want to fax.  Services work with many file formats, converting them to an analog transmission before sending the fax to the recipient. At the same time they are able to receive incoming fax and forward it to your inbox as a PDF attachment.

2. Using Your Online Fax Service’s Web Tool

Every online fax service has an web tool that you can use to send faxes.  You just need to log into your online fax service account and look for the “Send” section on the main page.  You’ll be taken to a web form.  Enter the details of the recipient, upload the files you want to fax and send your fax.

This method has the advantage that it can provide additional functions, like for example the ability to pull documents straight from your cloud storage accounts (in services like Box, Google Drive or Dropbox), the ability to broadcast a fax to more than 100 contacts at the same time, and an easy way to fax from your Contacts database.

3. Using Your Cell Phone

This third method is the newest one, but has already become very popular.  Faxing from your smartphone lets you practically have a virtual fax machine in your pocket at all times!  Forget about rushing to the nearest office store to send a fax, you can just do it in a few taps.

This is all possible with the aid of mobile fax apps. Now, not all services have these apps, so it’s good to do some research before deciding on a service.  The main advantage of this method is its flexibility.  Although apps lack some of the advanced features of the web account, they offer the advantage of taking a photo of a document to then fax it automatically, already optimized to be readable on any machine.
