Very important message that can save your life

Important message

Because of recent abductions 

In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation… This is for you, and for you to share
with your wife, your children, everyone you know. After reading these 10 crucial tipsforward them to someone you care about.
It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in. 
1. Tip from Tae Kwon DoThe elbow is the strongest point
on your body.. If you are close enough to use it, do! 
2.. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIMToss it away from you….Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.. The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will.
This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their chequebook, or making a list, etc. (DON’T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in
on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE..  If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it .As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
    A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor and in the back seat.
    B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger doorMost serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
   C.) Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side… If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control,
ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP
It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked ‘for help’ into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted  his next victim.
9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her ‘Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..’ The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, ‘We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.‘ He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.
10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full ball so that you will go out to investigate and then attack. Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors! 

Please take this message serious because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled
the serial killer in Louisiana  

I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle..



Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better to be safe than sorry…

Charles Norman Millican, Ph.D.  was the founding President of the University of Central Florida, then named Florida Technological University died he was , 94.

(October 9, 1916 – December 1, 2010)

Family and Education

Millican was born in Wilson, Arkansas. As a young man, he worked as a part-time reporter for Dun and Bradstreet while earning a bachelor of science degree in Business and Religion from Union University. He graduated in 1941 and was named pastor of Olive Branch Baptist Church in Mississippi.
Millican later entered the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kentucky. But, he returned to Jackson, Mississippi to serve as a coordinator for the 44th College Training Detachment of the United States Army Air Forces from 1943 to 1945.
He married Frances Hilliard on May 15, 1945 in Jackson, Tennessee.

Millican returned to school, and in 1946 earned his master of arts degree in Economics from George Peabody College, then joining the Commerce Department at his alma mater Union University. He would move south to Gainesville, Florida in 1948, to earn a Ph.D. in Business Finance and Economics from the University of Florida. Millican joined the university faculty, and was appointed the Assistant Dean of the Warrington College of Business Administration in 1956. Soon thereafter, he left for Texas where he became Dean of the School of Business Administration at Hardin-Simmons University.
In 1959 he moved to Tampa, Florida, to become Dean of the College of Business Administration at the University of South Florida.

University of Central Florida Presidency

In 1965 he was appointed the founding president of a new state university in Florida, then without a name or even a campus. Millican, with the advice of a citizen advisory group, selected the name “Florida Technological University,” though it is now known as the University of Central Florida.[1] The campus site he selected was just east of Orlando, Florida. He is also credited with establishing twin tenets for the university, “Accent on the Individual” and “Accent on Excellence.” Millican also chose the new university’s motto: “Reach for the Stars.” And, he was a co-designer of its distinctive “Pegasus” seal. The highlight of Millican’s presidency was at his new university’s commencement ceremonies in 1973, when he played host to President Richard Nixon.
Millican stepped-down as university president on January 31, 1978, but remained on the faculty. He was given the title of “President Emeritus,” and taught classes in finance. Due to his role in shaping the university, Millican is considered by many to be the “Father of UCF.”[2]

Later years
After leaving UCF, Millican served as the president of nearby Lake Highland Preparatory School from 1982 to 1985, and continued as President Emeritus-Consultant until 1993. Millican returned to serve the University in 1993 as President Emeritus and Special Assistant to the Chief Executive Officer of the UCF Foundation. Millican died on December 1, 2010, at his home in Central Florida.[2]
