Dad launches swimwear line made just for trans girls

A Toronto dad has started a swimwear line for trans girls after his own trans daughter struggled to find an appropriate swimsuit.

Jamie Alexander’s 12-year-old daughter Ruby was born male, but has identified as female for years. But while Jamie and his wife accept and embrace her for who she is, they know that Ruby will face some unique challenges in life — and Jamie wants to make sure going swimming isn’t one of them.

So the entrepreneur has launched a new swimwear line called Rubies, which includes specially-made bikini bottoms that are stylish and hide a bulge.

What a dad! Jamie Alexander’s 12-year-old daughter Ruby was born male, but has identified as female for years — and he’s launched a swimwear line just for trans girls in her honor

Protecting their daughter: Ruby’s parents support her but are aware that others may be less kind

Jamie came up with the idea when Ruby was 11 and they were planning a family vacation to Panama. 

‘What should Ruby wear to the beach in a country that may not be ready for a girl like her?’ he wrote on the Rubies website. ‘With that came a bigger question: how could [we] help girls like Ruby enjoy the same activities as their friends — with the same level of comfort and confidence, and no matter where they went?’ 

Speaking to the CBC, he said: ‘In the early days, when she socially transitioned, we put her in boys’ clothing for gym and swimming. She was reluctantly going along with us.’

On a later trip with family friends, they let Ruby wear a bikini. But while that didn’t pose a problem in that environment, Jaime knew it wouldn’t always be that easy. 

‘It’s a general fear that you don’t want your kid to be sort of called out,’ he said. ‘Someone doesn’t feel comfortable and they feel that it’s a potential safety issue.’

So he got to work, picking out fabric to work on the first prototype for a bikini just for trans girls.

He was then accepted to Fashion Zone, a fashion startup incubator at Ryerson University, where technicians helped him bring his idea to life.

That evolved into a second prototype, and a third and a fourth and so on. He even enlisted trans girls to test them out and provide feedback.

Now, finally, they’ve landed on a design that is now available for pre-orders online.

The bikini bottoms currently come in black and hot pink, and have a ‘soft compression that provides worry-free comfort and helps keep everything in place’. 

‘If your little rockstar is looking for a nice front view, this no-nonsense bikini bottom will give her support in all the right places,’ reads the product description.

Helping: The brand is also selling T-shirts with its logo and the phrase ‘every girl deserves to shine’ — and Jamie intends to use the proceeds to send free swimwear to trans kids

‘It magically turns a pointy poker into a mound. No tucking required. Made of the highest quality compression spandex and mesh that provides a comfortable fit, this bikini is slick, stylish AND sensible.’

In a statement to the New York Daily News, Jamie added: ‘We design form-fitting clothing for trans girls and their friends — so that they never stop being active and being girls, no matter where their day takes them. 

‘We believe that every girl should be able to enjoy the same level of comfort and aplikasi mahkotaqq confidence as her friends — whether it’s the beach, ballet, gym or swim.’

In addition to swimwear, the brand is also selling T-shirts with its logo and the phrase ‘every girl deserves to shine’ — and Jamie intends to use the proceeds to send free swimwear to trans kids.

‘I think he’s amazing,’ Ruby told the CBC about her dad.

Next up, he hopes to make a one-piece suit and leggings.

Discover the three hidden secrets of the poker playing professional!

What’s the difference between an amateur and a professional when it comes to poker playing? Professionals consistently win. Do you want to win like a pro? Professional poker players are professionals for a good reason – their professionals. They weren’t always that way. They learnt from poker players that were more advanced and discovered hidden traits that make them the best. Here are three hidden traits I have discovered that separates amateurs and professionals. These three traits will dramatically increase your earnings. Lets get to it and learn them.

Do you read minds?

Hidden secret number one: Professional poker players know how to read players. The better you are at reading the more you will understand how to play against them. I’m not talking about behavioral twitches, which is not available for you online. But you need to consider their raising, folding, re-raising, and other habits on the table. Do they fold early on? Do they fold when you bet big all of the time. Were they bluffing from the flop, but got lucky on the river or turn? You need to be aware of their betting habits, and professionals know how to do this. Practice online or with friends on your poker night. Beware though: practicing online to learn this skill will require real money, because people do not react the same way with “play money”. Most people do react the same way with real money, practice and pick this skill up. This will save you a lot of money in losses, and take your poker revenues sky high.

Don’t flood the market

Hidden secret number two: Professional poker players don’t bet on every hand. Poker players that have constant success take their time and don’t flood bets in. They are confident in their skills to read players that they don’t have to bet on every “possible” hand they could get. They usually bet on hands like pocket aces, or high suited cards. Don’t make the mistake that I use to make and bet because I had royalty. I usually would bet on a Q,9 or a J,8 I have found that cards like this, don’t pay off. It is rare that they will pay off however. When you show others that you’re not betting on any old thing that comes through, your bets will have more weight and you’ll be considered more conservative. So when you do bet, and bluff, you will be taking more seriously. Learning this secret has enabled my poker wins to jump, even when some people don’t bet against me. Remember the price of something goes up if its rare, if you bet rarely, it will be weighted more.

Just a little bit

Hidden secret number three: Professional poker players rarely rush in to a hand. How often do you see pro’s betting within a 2-minute time frame on ESPN? There’s a reason for this. It confuses the opposing player. They are thinking, “Do they have a good hand?” “Why is are they taking so long?” “What are they considering?” This technique only helps your chances. To through a spanner in the works, professionals sometimes bet a hand quickly to throw people off. It is gold! Master it and you can really make your poker personality known. There are a lot more poker secrets for karyaqq link alternatif you to discover. They are hidden from view, but are valuable enough to make you serious money.

SIM swapping explained: Do this now to protect your phone number in the future

Bypass Checkpoint Block Problem In Facebook [Solved] [Updated July 2017] - YouTubeSIM swapping is a serious trend you should know about. 

Jason Cipriani/CNET In January, a published study revealed how incredibly easy it is for hackers and fraudsters to take control of your phone number, potentially leading to thousands of dollars in fraud — that’s your money on the line. The practice of SIM swapping is becoming more common, and despite carriers putting safeguards in place, it’s scary how quickly the researchers were able to take over a phone number.

The SIM card inside your phone is a small plastic chip that tells your device which cellular network to connect to, and which phone number to use. We rarely ever think about SIM cards, except maybe when we get a new phone. 

But here’s the problem — hackers know that SIM cards are a fairly easy access point when it comes to taking over someone’s phone number, and in turn, gain access to their online accounts. 

SIM cards seem so minor, don’t they? 

Jason Cipriani/CNET SIM swapping occurs when someone contacts your wireless carrier and is able to convince the call center employee that they are, in fact, you, using your personal data. 

They do this by using data that’s often exposed in hacks, data breaches, or information you publicly share on social networks to trick the call center employ into switching the SIM card linked to your phone number, and replace it with a SIM card in their possession. 

Once your phone number is assigned to a new card, all of your incoming calls and text messages will be routed to whatever phone the new SIM card is in. 

At first glance, it seems somewhat harmless. But when you consider that most of us have our phone numbers linked to our bank, email and social media accounts, you quickly begin to see how easy it would be for someone with access to your phone number can take over your entire online presence. 

Now playing: Watch this: Time to delete your (unused) apps 1:06 Matthew Miller, a contributor to CNET sister site, ZDNet, fell victim to a SIM swap scam last year, and he’s still experiencing the repercussions of the fallout. Whoever took over Miller’s phone number gained access to his Gmail account, and promptly changed his password, then erased every email, deleted every file in his Google Drive account, and eventually deleted his Gmail account altogether. 

Miller later discovered he was targeted because he had a Coinbase account and his bank account was linked to it. Miller’s phone received his Coinbase account’s two-factor authentication codes, so the hackers were able to log into his cryptocurrency trading account and purchase $25,000 worth of Bitcoin. Miller had to call his bank and report the transaction as fraud. That’s on top of the immense vulnerability he felt.

One ill-gotten gain for someone who takes over your phone number is the instant access to any two-factor authentication (2FA) codes you receive through text messages, the pin that an institution texts you to verify that you are who you say. That means if they have your password, they’re just a few clicks away from logging into your email, bank, or social media accounts. 

And if someone gains access to your email account, they can change passwords and search through your email archive to build a list of your entire online presence. Take the time to move away from SMS 2FA codes and use app-based codes instead. Seriously. 

It takes just a few minutes to add a critical layer of security to your account. 

Screenshot by Jason Cipriani/CNET What can you do to prevent SIM swapping on your account?
You can decrease your chances of someone gaining access to and taking over your phone number by adding a PIN code or password to your wireless account. T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint and AT&T all offer the ability to add a PIN code. 

Some companies, like Sprint, require you to set up a PIN code when you sign up for service. However, if you’re unsure if you have a PIN code or need to set one up, here’s what you need to do for each of the four major US carriers. 

Sprint customers: Log in to your account on then go to My Sprint > Profile and security > Security information and update the PIN or security questions then click Save.

AT&T subscribers: Go to your account profile, sign in, and then click Sign-in info. Select your wireless account if you have multiple AT&T accounts, then go to Manage extra security under the Wireless passcode section. Make your changes, then enter your password when prompted to save.

T-Mobile users: Set up a PIN or passcode the first time you sign in to your My T-Mobile account. Pick Text messages or Security question and follow the prompts. 

Verizon Wireless customers: Call *611 and ask for a Port Freeze on your account, and visit this webpage to learn more about enabling Enhanced Authentication on your account.
If your phone loses service, call customer care right away. 

Juan Garzon/CNET If you have service through a different carrier, call their customer service number to ask how you can protect your account. Most likely, you’ll be asked to create a PIN or passcode.

When creating a PIN or passcode, keep in mind that if someone has enough information to fake that they’re actually you, using a birthday, anniversary, or address as the PIN code isn’t going to cut it. Instead, create a unique passcode for your carrier and then store it in your password manager.

How do you know if you’ve been affected? 

The easiest way to tell if your SIM card is no longer active is if you completely lose service on your phone. You may receive a text message stating the SIM card for your number has been changed, and to call customer service if you didn’t make the change. But with your SIM card no longer active, you won’t be able to place a call from your phone — not even to customer service (more on this below). 

In short, the quickest way to tell if you’ve been affected is if your phone completely loses service and you can’t send or receive text messages or phone calls. 

There are some steps you can take should you happen to be a victim of sim swap fraud. 

Juan Garzon / CNET What should you do if you find yourself a victim of SIM swap fraud?
The truth is, if someone wants access to your phone number bad enough, they will do all they can to trick your carrier’s support representative. What we’ve outlined above are best practices, but they’re not foolproof. 

Researchers were able to pose as account holders who had forgotten their PIN or passcodes, oftentimes providing the recent numbers called by the account holder. How do they know those numbers? They either tricked the account holder into calling a couple of numbers — or even scarier, phone numbers for incoming calls to the account they want to take over, meaning the bad guy simply needed to call the target’s phone number themselves. 

Once you realize you’ve lost service on your mobile device, call your carrier immediately and let them know you didn’t make the changes. The carrier will help you recover access to your phone number. I can’t emphasize this enough — do not wait to call. The longer someone has access to your phone number, the more damage they can do. 

Here are the customer service numbers for each major carrier. Put your carrier’s number in your phone as a contact:

Sprint: 1-888-211-4727

AT&T: 1-800-331-0500

T-Mobile: 1-800-937-8997

Verizon: 1-800-922-0204
Once someone gains access to your phone number, they’ll have access to most of your online accounts. 

James Martin/CNET With your SIM card deactivated, you won’t be able to call from your phone, but at least you’ll have the number handy to use on someone else’s device. 

You’ll also want to reach out to your bank(s), credit card company, and double-check all of your online accounts to make sure that the perpetrator hasn’t changed your passwords or made any fraudulent transactions. If you find transactions that aren’t yours, call your bank or visit a branch right away and explain the situation. 

Remember, no matter how many PIN codes or passwords we add to our online accounts, there’s still a chance that someone will find a way to break in. But at least by setting a passcode for your account, and knowing what to do if you find yourself a victim of SIM swapping, you’re prepared. 

Another critical aspect of strong online security is to use a password manager to create and store unique passwords on your behalf. Additionally, enable two-factor authentication on every account that offers it.

Why Business Card And Logo Design is Essential For Business

A business card is very small in size, which represents the person or an organization that contains the details of graphic information. Business cards contain a person’s name, phone number, e-mail address, website, and organization name. And clearly, focus on logo or other graphic information in the business card.

Importance LOGO Design

The first and most essential advantage of having a logo is it creates a unique brand reputation in a market. The logo always helps you in your marketing activities or any strategies. And you will not even feel how effective the logo is. Once the customers pick up the logo, they will automatically recognize your business by your logo.

Logos having many categories like symbols, patterns or images. Our minds can catch these faster rather than words or sentences. When you look at the logo, you just have to understand which type of product provided by the company. The logo is the platform to cover all the gaps between the customer and the business. For example, any material that you give your supplier, customers and clients should go with your custom logo.
