(Photo: Military with PTSD Facebook) 15 CONNECT 8 TWEET LINKEDIN 2 COMMENTEMAILMORE A reminder of war's lasting effect flashed across social media today as a photo of a veteran standing behind a sign expressing concerns about fireworks and the emotional trigger of nearby explosions spawned an outpouring of reaction. In less than 24 hours, more than 100,000 people shared the Facebook post, many of them veterans acknowledging the challenges of neighbors shooting off fireworks without thinking of the consequences of those nearby. "Combat veteran lives here, please be courteous with fireworks," reads the poster held by a bearded veteran in the photo that went viral Tuesday and Wednesday. "It's a nice statement that people are picking up and sharing that," says Barbara Van Dahlen, a Washington, D.C. area psychologist and founder of Give An Hour, which provides free behavioral health counseling to troops, veterans and their families.

How to dress: holiday cover-ups | Fashion | The Guardian
For debit cards, that $50 limit applies if you report your card stolen within the first two days. Moreover, both Visa (NYSE: V ) and MasterCard (NYSE: MA ) offer zero-liability policies that apply to many cardholders, keeping them from having to pay even that $50 amount. But even if you end up losing none of your own money, dealing with identity theft takes extensive effort. The Experian survey found that, among those who have been victims of identity theft while traveling, more than half said that it had at least somewhat of an impact on their entire travel experience, distracting them from the true purpose of their vacation. Moreover, resolving the fallout from identity theft is a major undertaking, with more than half of those surveyed saying that dealing with the theft took a week or longer. Fully 10% said it took several months to sort through the damage that scammers did to their credit ratings and financial lives. Some basic to-dos to protect against identity theft Modern technology has made it a lot easier to take steps to prevent identity theft, or to minimize its effects when it does happen. With online and mobile access to bank and credit card accounts, you can see almost in real time when unauthorized transactions hit your account. Many credit card companies encourage their customers to inform them when they're traveling, so they can adjust their fraud-monitoring detection systems to take these travels into account, but also to be on the lookout for common travel-fraud problems.

What holiday in the Hamptons says about Wall St.
Donot overthink poolside outfits: this is a holiday, not ayacht-based promotional opportunity for your lifestyle range, so celebrity style rules do not apply. No, the hard part of packing is how to navigate the transitional hours. What you'll need for the shivery early-morning departure and the over-airconditioned plane; what to have on standby for a rubbish-weather day. Cheap, no-frills flying has turned our packing upside down. (Literally, if you're unlucky.) In the old days, you went away for a fortnight once a year with a huge suitcase full of "just in case" pieces, and maybe you got a dirty look at check-in when it weighed in at 28kg, but that was it. Now we travel more often, on shorter trips, with less stuff, and early mornings and late nights at airports are standard. No one wants to fail the undignified public weigh-in at check-in and end up unzipped and anxious under the gaze of a judgey queue; anyway, cabin baggage-only looks way more savvy than hanging around at the luggage carousel. I read lots of "helpful tips" from stylish travellers about how they take only acarry-on case to Barbados, while never leaving home without Diptyque candles, their own pillow, acashmere onesie, etc. Hmmm.

Traveling for the Holiday? Don't Let Identity Theft Ruin Your Trip (MA, V)
There are 3,400 listing over this price point on hreo.com. The fly in the ointment, if you want to call it that, is that the philistines are at the hedgerows, and they've found their encampment on Airbnb. Despite some local regulations, plenty of Hamptons homeowners are following their city-mouse cousin's example and renting rooms and whole houses on the popular peer-to-peer website. I found a listing for this weekend for $292/night, right in Southampton. Yes, you have to share a bathroom with several other people. But according to the comments, the hostess gives a mean foot rub. Yeah, I don't know what to do with that either.
