    1969: The Doors hold an infamous concert at the Coconut Grove Auditorium in Miami, Florida. Lead singer and resident bad boy, Jim Morrison is arrested on stage after he allegedly exposes himself to the crowd. He’s is not formally arraigned with a mug shot until September of the next year.

    Although obviously drunk and verbally abusive to the crowd, Morrison is posthumously cleared of the indecent exposure charge during an appeals process that dragged on past the singer’s death in 1971.

Virtually forgotten now, Make Room for Daddy was one of TV’s earliest and most successful sitcoms.

We’ve all heard about “skimming.” That’s when you use your ATM card and some scam artist has inserted an additional piece of card-reading hardware that will steal you ATM card information. The people that monitor this sort of thing say incidents of skimming were up 500% in 2015 over the previous year.

Here’s how you can reduce the risk of someone getting you valuable information:

  1. Stick with the Chip – Digital chips are harder to hack (not impossible, but harder). Try to avoid using card readers where you still have to swipe the card's magnetic strip.
  2. Use a Bank Machine – While not perfect, bank ATMs are more secure. They are better maintained and have 24/7 surveillance cameras. Machines at gas stations and convenience stores account for the majority of card information theft.
  3. Inspect Before Swiping – If the machine doesn’t accept your card smoothly, walk away. Newer machines also have a flashing light in the card slot. If you don’t see one or it’s partially obscured, you might want to find another machine.
  4. Always Check Your Card Statements – Make there are no unusual or unfamiliar charges.
  5. Talk with Your Bank about Alternative Solutions – You might open a separate account with a smaller amount of money just for ATM purchases or you can lower the daily limit for ATM withdrawals.
