The United States is in the grips of a full-fledged opioid epidemic. Opioid overdoses killed 47,600 people in 2017. That’s a 250 percent increase from 2007, and that number is on the rise. The epidemic has hit Massachusetts particularly hard, with opioid-related deaths in the state towering above the national average.
As the most populous state in the New England region, Massachusetts’ culture is strongly influenced by human interactions. Unfortunately, not all of these interactions are pleasant or fruitful. From kindergarten to college to the workplace to online media and even at home, bullying is a serious problem. In fact, CNN believes it is now a public health concern all across America.
Whether the owners of the mobile phones are the perpetrators or the victims, smart phones are becoming more and more involved in crimes at alarming rates. Theft by fraud is one of the main ways smart phones become involved in criminal activities in Massachusetts. Forbes estimates that 65% of fraudulent transactions in America now take place via cell phones. Phishing is one of the main threats affecting mobile phone users at this time.
As the weather in Massachusetts is finally clearing up, many people are gearing up to play sports outdoors, including golf. You may be one of many who is excited to practice shooting your hole-in-ones or even just to enjoy the ease that comes with riding a golf cart against a gentle breeze.
