-MARYSVILLE, CA The Folsom Lake Falcons have enjoyed a recent string of success in terms of our athletics. Consider the Folsom Lake Women’s Soccer team, which, nonexistent just two years ago, already has an overall record of 36-6-3 and is preparing to head into next season with as much “Falcontude” as ever. It’s obvious that FLC’s growing dedication to sports has momentum, and that momentum is currently being carried along by the 2015 Falcons Baseball team. With an inaugural record of 22-13, the gentlemen behind the bats are simply slugging the whole season out of the park.
Stacked with consistent studs such as third baseman Mykhel Lee, shortstop Grant Heisinger, and designated hitter and outfielder Noah Revis-French, the Falcons are on a path of domination that so far has consisted of 10 home runs and a team batting average of .271 over 34 games. For this reason, I am introducing an all new Folsom Lake Talon-exclusive hashtag: #talonted.

Découvrir le fin de siècle, la Belle Époque, et la joie de vivre à le musée d'art de Crocker.
La Belle Époque- the beautiful era- was a time in European history, beginning in 1871. This time of art and innovation was put to death at the start of World War I. It is no wonder these years surrounding the turn of the century in France are so often romanticized. They were filled with a decadence and a hunger for life. The people were modern enough to be innovative and still naïve to the treacheries World War I would soon bring. There was a defiant set of avant-garde artists determined to shake off the limiting codes of the academy’s standards; they chose to depict the varied scenes of Parisian life- its cabarets and café concerts, its brothels and street scenes. These pioneers captured the social set and domestic life with a mixture of affection and criticism.

When I volunteered to write this article, I thought I had a pretty good grasp as to what Domestic Violence (DV) was. Over the years, having done paid and volunteer work with various organizations that work with vulnerable segments of the population, I picked up a thing or two here and there about various types of abuse--Elder Abuse, Financial Abuse, and Child Abuse--but none of it directly dealt with domestic violence (but some of the components of abuse apply to more than one situation). Little did I know how much I didn’t know on the topic.
I recently completed a 40 hour Domestic Violence Victim Advocate training course with Operation Care in Jackson, CA, and on the first day I was surprised by some of the statistics and history of what is now considered DV. The first thing we did after the requisite introductions and a brief overview of the training schedule, was a pre-test to see what the group already knew about DV. Feeling pretty confident, I answered the questions without hesitation. Afterwards we began to dive right in to history and statistics, and I began to realize how little I actually knew.

Anyone who has a computer has at some point come across the term malware, whether it is through a security warning or talking to tech support. The term itself is a shortened form of “malicious software”, and can cover any type of software used to either disrupt computer operations, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private systems. The term is an umbrella for several different kinds of malicious software, with some of the most common being adware, trojans, and ransomware. A lot of the time the victim of these programs will not even be aware of their presence until after they have damaged your computer.
