3 AM attempt to enter bedroom of sleeping teenager foiled by older sister
An unknown perpetrator attempted to enter a Charlottetown residence at 3 AM last night. The person, thought to be a young male or female, removed an outside screen on a basement window and jimmied the window open. The window was above the bed of a sleeping teenage female.
The perpetrator was attempting to enter and knocked over a Christmas candle decoration while moving the blinds aside. The person had pulled the cord to pull the blinds up facilitating their entrance.
The only light on in the room was a night light near the sleeping girl. Her older sister was in the far corner of the room browsing the internet. She turned around quickly and saw the hand and arm of a small male or female entering the room.

Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday less than two years after winning election as President of the United States. Some commentators, including Canada’s CBC, can not end their deep negativity in the face of his power.
Obama was elected because he offered people hope. For Americans he appealed to minorities who believed he would give them a better chance at the American Dream. For blacks he was one of them. For Americans with disabilities he promised inclusion in society denied them for thousands of years.
Disability rates climb, according to CDA’s 2008 Disability Claims Review, and they are only going to go higher
In a press release, the Council for Disability Awareness reports that US private insurer claims for disability rose to $8 billion in the 2008. The Federal Social Security Disability benefits increased almost 6% to $91 billion in 2008.
Since disability is a natural consequence of aging this increase should be expected and predictable.
The Baby Boom generation is the largest demographic group in North American history. The unusually large numbers – 76 million American and 8.6 million Canadian – of children born in the post-WWII period are called Baby Boomers or just Boomers.
If you are disabled you can start a small business with up to $23,400 from the Canadian government without losing your CP Disability
If that sounds too good to be true, it isn’t. The Federal government has an easy-to-access program that helps the disabled get back to work with self-employment.
The Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities provides income assistance for 52 to 78 weeks at $300 per week. The assistance is paid by direct deposit every two weeks.
