Stranger Things 2 Dominates Reviews and Social Media

When Stranger Things debuted on Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) in July 2016, it was a breakout hit and became one of the most streamed shows of the year. The series, which combines horror with a nostalgic view of 1980’s pop culture, was lauded by fans and critics for combining a gripping story with compelling characters.

The long-awaited release of Stranger Things 2 in late October carried on in the tradition of its predecessor and recreated the buzz that made the original a smash hit. It captured a 95% Fresh on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes and also garnered massive social media attention ahead of its release.

Buzz-worthy shows are one of the key drivers of new subscribers for Netflix, and its record of creating and acquiring noteworthy programming shows why the streaming pioneer will continue to succeed.

Midlands student approached by stranger at bus stop

Lexington School District 1 received a report Thursday of a student at a bus stop being approached by a stranger in a vehicle.

According to a letter sent to parents from district superintendent Greg Little, the incident involved a student in the White Knoll attendance area. A specific school was not identified.

“That stranger asked if the student needed a ride,” Little said in the letter. “At that time the bus pulled up, and the student immediately reported it to the bus driver. That driver then called it in to her supervisor, administrators at the school, and the school resource officer, who also quickly contacted law enforcement.

“While no one was hurt today, we do find the driver’s behavior concerning.”

Lexington County Police confirmed receiving a report of the incident. The driver was described as a young white male in a silver or gray four-door sedan.

Boy describes scary ‘stranger danger’ incident near school: ‘He chased us’

Parents who have children in the Campbell-Kapolei Complex Area were sent letters Thursday alerting them to “stranger danger” incidents involving three elementary schools this week.

The elementary schools were Ewa Beach, Mauka Lani, and Keoneula.

According to the Department of Education, all three cases involved students walking to or from school. In all cases, officials say no students were injured and the incidents were reported to parents and/or school officials.

They reported being approached by a man in a black- or dark-colored truck who offered them a ride. In one case, a student reported being grabbed the man in an attempted abduction.

Luke Okihiro’s 8-year-old son, Cameron, was there.

As he spent the afternoon watching his son play soccer, Okihiro said he’s thankful Cameron is safe after running from a man who tried to lure him and his friends into a truck days earlier.

“Basically Cameron told me some guy in a black truck try to offer

Stranger Things Season 2 Release Date, Trailer, Cast, Story Details, and More News

Netflix’s Stranger Things has abruptly emerged from the proverbial Upside Down to take its place as a pop culture phenomenon. It also happens to be one of the streaming outlet’s biggest hits ever with a reported 8.2 million people watching Season 1 in its first 16 days, a feat that apparently surpasses Netflix’s popular Marvel shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and even its headline-generating Making a Murderer documentary series.

Here’s everything we currently know about Stranger Things season 2, and we’ll keep this article updated as we find out more.

Stranger Things Season 2 Poster

Netflix, in its Stranger Things Season 2 buildup effort, released an intriguing pop culture callout promo poster. Encouraging a preparatory repeat binge of Season 1, this poster is the epitome of fan service, parodying the iconic-yet-creepy imagery from the unmistakable original poster for 1979’s Alien. Indeed, the poster similarly shows a slimy creature egg, coupled with a take

Ask Mr. Dad: Stranger danger – Myths and facts

A: Let’s start with a reality check. We often hear about the tens of thousands of children who are reported missing every year, and it’s no surprise that parents and kids panic. But what we rarely hear about is that 90 percent of those kids have simply gotten lost, didn’t’ tell their parents about their plans, or ran away. The majority of the rest are taken by a parent during a custody battle or by another person that the child knows. Only about 100 children are kidnapped by strangers. Overall, of all those “missing” children, 99.8 percent come home, according to the Polly Klass Foundation (which was named after a girl who was, tragically, in the .2 percent). Every child who is abused or doesn’t make it home is heartbreaking, but, statistically, the chances that your child will be kidnapped are extremely low.

How to teach your children about stranger safety

Most of us have heard the term “stranger danger.” It’s a slogan that’s been popular for decades, likely taught during childhood. However, while it’s important for children to understand the risks some strangers might pose, most strangers are not threatening and shouldn’t be feared.

“Stranger danger is the idea that all strangers can potentially be dangerous, but the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is now encouraging parents to steer away from the phrase,” said Jeanne Marsala, RN, Safe Kids Clark County Director at Sunrise Children’s Hospital. “The reason is that most strangers are entirely safe and, conversely, the vast majority of adults who abuse children are not strangers.”

Rather than teaching “stranger danger,” parents should educate children about safe strangers while emphasizing caution, situational awareness and establishing boundaries.
