Looking Back: Clearing Away the Trash We Regret, Part 2

Regret. The word causes anxiety to flare up and forms a pit in the stomach. Regrets. We all have them. Like old, rotting trash, the odor of regret lingers, contaminating our joy and polluting our future.

 

It’s time to take out the trash—once and for all! It’s time to face the past and leave it there.

 

The process of addressing our sin and its consequences naturally brings pain. Most of the time, rather than dealing with these failures, we prefer to leave behind the unsettled past and walk into the future. But until we clean house and deal with the past, we will continue to drag with us a smelly garbage bag. In this message, we will look back and deal with our regrets so we can look ahead toward the priorities we need to pursue.

FCC Proposes $120 Million Fine On Florida Robocall Scammer

/. - Thu, 06/22/2017 - 2:40pm
The FCC on Thursday proposed a $120 million fine on a Florida resident alleged to have made almost 100 million spoofed robocalls to trick consumers with "exclusive" vacation deals from well-known travel and hospitality companies. Reuters reports: The man, identified as Adrian Abramovich, allegedly made 96 million robocalls during a three-month period by falsifying caller identification information that matched the local area code and the first three digits of recipient's phone number, the FCC said. The calls, which were in violation of the U.S. telecommunications laws, offered vacation deals from companies such as Marriott International Inc, Expedia Inc, Hilton Inc and TripAdvisor Inc. Consumers who answered the calls were transferred to foreign call centers that tried to sell vacation packages, often involving timeshares. These call centers were not related to the companies, the FCC said.
