o you ever feel like every time you turn around, there’s something new in the technological world that’d being advertised as that thing you really need and shouldn’t be living without? Your computer was new when you bought it six months ago but now there’s something new that’s just been released that makes your laptop look like the massive desktop computers you used to play “Oregon Trail” on in grade school. The screen isn’t removable and doesn’t double as a tablet or it’s not light as air with double the memory. Technology just seems to move too fast to keep up with. But Snippetz just couldn’t let some of these new inventions slip by without giving them a nod for their ingenuity. So we’ve compiled information about some of the newest gadgets on the market to astonish you as they did us!

These Andriod-based glasses are “monocular augmented reality devices.” In laymen’s terms, they’re really cool glasses that feature a display, video recording capabilities and wireless connectivity. They come with preinstalled apps that can record and play back high definition video images and pictures. It’s like wearing a camera on your face and who wouldn’t like that? The glasses feature Bluetooth technology so they can be paired with other Bluetooth devices. They also create a type of situational awareness through the use of GPS and integrated headtracking capabilities (say that three times fast).

The Livescribe Echo Smartpen is something many of us probably wish we had in college when we were scribbling away during lectures only to find out we couldn’t make out what we had written. It allows you to record audio while taking notes so you never have to rely on those illegible notes again. The memory storage holds up to 800 hours of audio, charges through your computer through a USB connector and allows you to connect to smartpen apps so you can easily navigate through the audio files you’ve stored.

The Cobra Tag sensor attaches to your keys, laptop bag, purse or whatever you want to keep from being stolen. The sensor communicates with a free app you can download to your smartphone which reminds you if you leave your tagged item behind. But it also works the other way around. You can use the Cobra Tag to find your smartphone, too. Simply tap the button on the tag and your smartphone rings. Use the app on your smartphone to make the Cobra Tag ring. You can also use the Cobra Tag’s PhoneHalo app to lock your phone so your personal information can’t be stolen if your phone ever is.

This innovative sound system allows you to take your iPod or iPhone outside and blast your music to drive your neighbors crazy in a whole new way! The system features eight speakers and a 22W output with bass boost so you can enjoy the tunes on your device while outside . . . and because the unit has a 72-square-inch monocrystal solar panel, the whole system can be fully charged in just five hours of direct sunlight. The lithium ion battery can provide up to eight hours of playback time and it charges your iPod or iPhone

while the sun charges it. You can also use the AC adapter if you want to bring your system inside. Now you can kiss your regular sounds system goodbye!

NISSAN 3E We know, this sounds like it must be a car, right? It’s not, although it is made by the Nissan Motor Company. The Nissan 3E is actually a monocle-style eyepiece that shoots video and adds augmented reality information to what you’re seeing. The purpose: to provide customers an enhanced way to shop for a vehicle by providing additional information on the device for the viewer to peruse while checking out a specific car. Who’s to say this won’t become the new way to shop not only for cars but for everything? It might be helpful to have those nutritional labels right there in front of your face on your monocle than having to scan for what’s in your favorite breakfast cereal.

SLEEPOW The Sleepow is a memory-foam pillow that plays calming low-frequency beats through built-in speakers to help reduce stress and ease you into a deep, relaxing sleep. It comes with pre-loaded sounds but you can add your own favorite sounds through the built-in mp3 player.

FLIR ONE For all you budding James Bonds out there, the FLIR One was created just for you! It attaches to your iPhone and allows you to see infrared light. Basically, it provides thermal imaging for anyone willing to pay for it who doesn’t want to lug around heavy equipment. You can do some serious top secret spy missions with this puppy . . . but you have to wait until this spring for it to be available.

HEAPSYLON SENSORIA SOCKS The Heapsylon Sensoria socks work with an included anklet that transmits data from the electronic fibers woven into the socks to an app that compiles your fitness and exercise data.

GOOGLE CONTACT LENSES Using the concept of the regular contact lens, GoogleX developers have created these contact lenses that allow diabetics to continually check their glucose levels through a tiny processing chip, a specialized glucose sensor and an antenna that is thinner than a human hair. The sensor detects glucose levels in the wearer’s tears by taking readings once per second and the transmitter sends the readings to an external device to allow for constant monitoring without the finger-poking most people have to endure.

SMART WIG That’s right. Sony has recently filed for a patent application for a smart wig. Supposedly, the wig will contain sensors, communications functionality and “an actuator for tactile feedback.” They say the wig could be used as a navigation tool for the sight-impaired by sending out ultrasound signals to detect objects. It will then alert the wearer through vibrations or small electric shocks. Sounds pleasant.

SMART TATTOOS

It sounds completely crazy but Google has been working to obtain a patent that links skin tattoos to mobile devices. Why? Well, the patent application says that the tattoo, probably located on a person’s throat, could act as a microphone, a transceiver for wireless communications and an energy supply. Maybe you can charge your phone through your throat tattoo . . .?

Nick-Snips

CRAZY OR CANDID? by Nick Yanez

M

ost people hear a conspiracy theory for the first time and completely dismiss it. Whether it sounds too ridiculous to be true, the facts don’t line up, or the person telling you is not-all-there, usually these leaps of idealism stretch far past our realm of logic. But then, you could find yourself looking further into it. With enough internet support and Youtube videos out there, I’ve come to find that any conspiracy theory can start to feel true if you spend enough time researching it. They can throw inconsistencies and very wise speculation at you. They can skew facts left and right; before you know it, you’re one of them. They got you! Who are they exactly? Well, they can be anyone who challenged the thinking of society on big events throughout history. You’ve at least heard some rumblings about this stuff before. There’s countless conspiracy theories about all different things throughout US history – Area 51, The Kennedy Assassination, 9/11, Osama Bin Laden; the list goes on and on. Recently a secret military fortress was uncovered underneath notorious California prison Alcatraz. To the knowledge of almost everyone, the military base built underneath the island has been destroyed long ago. But alas, a team of Texas A&M researchers discovered the underground military structure still standing by using ground penetrating radar. When asked by media affiliates about the find, and what the base used to be, Texas A&M professor Mark Everett explained that, “from 1850 to 1907 was the era of Fort Acatraz”. Indeed, professor. It turns out that the military base had primarily been used during the Civil War as a line of defense. Its location wasn’t exactly in the midst of battle (the base never saw a shot fired, in fact). Due to the lack of action and Island-setting, it stood as a safe haven for confederate sympathizers who denounced the federal government. The fort was believed to be destroyed when the main prison building

was assembled in 1915.

McCord’s Garden Center and Landscaping

Turns out that’s not the case. With radar revealing tunnels that date back to before 1915, we now know the structure was never fully destroyed. This leads some people to believe that the military has been using the base all along! What’s hilarious is that this base was proven to exist just a few months after people were reportedly trying to sneak out of tour groups while at the prison to find a secret room underneath the island as portrayed in the 2012-2013 Fox drama Alcatraz. Maybe J.J. Abrams knew something we didn’t and that’s the real reason the show was cancelled? Doubtful, but the discovery has brought up a lot of questions.

In fact, the internet has gone wild in speculation, accusing the secret base of being used for torture, science experiments, and military technology research. If any of those things are true, whoever is living down there better bail quickly, before the A&M crew breaks in for further evaluation.

be planted in mid-July. Cucumbers – Cucumbers can be started indoors by seed around the middle of April and transplanted outside in late May. Be very careful transplanting as their roots are very fragile.

It just goes to show, once again, that we can make something out of nothing. Actually, I’m impressed what the internet has enabled people to do based on what was a seemingly small news story. In a month or so, there will probably be an entire website dedicated to theories about this underground prison. In my estimation, this story just makes an already interesting place even more fascinating.

Eggplant - Start from seed around the middle of March and wait to transplant until there is no chance of frost. Melons - Start seeds indoors around the end of April and transplant after there is no chance of frost. Melon roots are also fragile so plant carefully.

My recommendation is that you ignore the crazies. Take the story for what it is and just put some trust in the medi- ah, who am I kidding? Read everything and anything that tells you the media is lying. Basically, a career in journalism is just learning how to lie without getting in too much trouble.

DIRECT SOW OR TRANSPLANT? Part One

So I say read the conspiracy theories and wild accusations. Take it all in. I mean, someone has to hold the media accountable after one of these stories eventually turns out to be totally false. Someone has to lead the revolution. You can never be sure if they’re being honest with you. Take for example this story – can you honestly say right now that I didn’t just make the whole thing up?

VEGETABLES WORTH STARTING INDOORS

C

ertain vegetables produce a bigger harvest if you direct sow your seed right into your garden, while other vegetables need to be started indoors in order to produce anything at all! So which vegetables should you direct sow and which should be started indoors? Here is a list to help WEED them out. Pun intended!

Peppers – Peppers should to be seeded indoors no later than the middle of March. Transplants can be planted outdoors in early June. Squash - Both summer squash and winter squash can be started indoors in early April and transplanted outside around the end of May. Squash roots are also fragile so plant carefully. Tomatoes - Select tomato varieties with the shortest days to maturity and start seed indoors around the middle of March. Be especially diligent about hardening off your tomatoes before planting outside and wait until there is no chance of frost. Be sure to harden off any transplants before leaving them outside by setting your plant out during the day and gradually introducing them to more sun and wind. If it’s too late to start seed indoors than transplants can be found at your local garden centers. Continued in Two Weeks: Vegetables that can be directly seeded in Your Garden

LONELINESS: THE CONSTANT HEARTACHE WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR LONELINESS? By Dr. Ron Ross

“What do you do that causes her to treat you that way?” was a question my counseling professor, Fr. Dr. Robert McEniry (Creighton University), taught his students to ask in a marriage counseling situation. The question presupposes that the responsibility for what happens between married partners is on each of them, not just one of them. A lonely person should ask a similar question: What do I do that causes people to treat me the way they do? All emotional healing begins with selfinventory and an acceptance of personal responsibility for who you are, how you act, and what happens to you. First, look within. Listen to what you tell yourself about yourself. If you constantly agonize over your worthlessness and your inability to make friends, you are your own worst enemy. You defeat yourself before you begin. Your very thoughts deter personal growth and the development of social skills. Your next step out of loneliness is to develop the habit of positive self talk. It will not be easy because it has taken you years of practice to be perpetually down on yourself. Listen carefully for words such as “I can’t” or “It’s too difficult,” or “I tried that once and it didn’t work.” Your actions are a result of your thoughts so if you keep telling yourself you cannot do this or will not go there, you can’t and you won’t. Change your conversation about yourself and you will discover a happier, friendlier self than you have ever known. Now take it a step farther. Examine every aspect of your life. Take an objective look at how you dress, move, talk, groom yourself, etc. Do you look

lonely? Do you walk lonely? Do you talk lonely? If you do, guess what? You are going to be lonely because you broadcast to everyone nearby, “Stay away from me! I don’t want or need your friendship.” People who walk around with a “poor me” attitude never attract friends. People want to be around others who smile, laugh and bring joy to every conversation. Now the really BIG step: Change something. Fix something. Transform yourself from being boring to charming; from uninformed to well informed; from nobody to somebody; and most important, stop being a victim. Walk like you are important, offer your opinion and speak it with confidence. Take full responsibility for your own life and situation. Stop being the victim and begin to think of and present yourself as a victor. Try it for a week and see what happens. Try it for 90 days and you will change your life forever.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: For some reason, I have gotten into the habit of checking my pulse when I walk or when I sit. While I watch TV, my pulse is about 100. Isn’t that way too fast? -- C.K. ANSWER: Pulse and heartbeat are one and the same. When the heart ejects blood, a pressure pulse is created in the all the body’s arteries. You can feel the pulse beat in the neck, the ankle or the thumb side of the wrist. A normal pulse rate (heartbeat) is 60 to 100 times a minute. Your 100 is normal, but at the high end of normal. Since you have no symptoms, you don’t have to rush to see a doctor. But at your next exam, mention your high pulse rate. The doctor can judge if conditions that lead to a fast heartbeat need to be investigated. An overactive thyroid gland and anemia are two such conditions. The booklet on heartbeat irregularities explains the heart’s many rhythm problems. Atrial fibrillation is the chief one. You do not have it.

Yes, tattoos can be removed with lasers. Treatment is expensive, time-consuming and sometimes cannot get rid of all traces of the tattoo. It depends on the pigment used, but lasers do a pretty good job. Work is under way for the development of pigments that are more readily erased.

PALMER LAKE WELLNESS CENTER

Plastic surgeons, dermatologists and other doctors are adept at removing tattoos. Older treatments, still used from time to time, include cutting out the skin (done with small tattoos) or abrading the tattoo, similar to abrading acne scars.

*** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What can I do to get rid of a carbuncle? I have had it for four months. -- M.G.

OFFERING THE FINEST QUALITY AND LOWEST PRICES!

ANSWER: Carbuncles are huge boils that penetrate more deeply than do boils. They have to be opened and drained of the pus within them. Antibiotics generally are prescribed, too.

We have re-designed the Palmer Lake Wellness Center to provide our clients with our very best!

Often, the antibiotic chosen has to be one that’s effective against MRSA (methicillinresistant Staph aureus, pronounced “mersa”). MRSA is one of the new supergerms that are touched only by a few, rarely prescribed antibiotics. Carbuncles are found most often on the neck, back, thighs and buttocks. You must have a doctor treat them. You’re not going to meet with success on your own.

MOMENTS IN TIME THE HISTORY CHANNEL

• On March 6, 1475, Michelangelo Buonarroti, the greatest of the Italian Renaissance artists, is born in the village of Caprese. His most important early work was the Pieta (1498), which showed the body of Christ in the lap of the Virgin Mary. He extracted the two perfectly balanced figures of the Pieta from a single block of marble. • On March 8, 1862, the Confederate ironclad Virginia wreaks havoc on a Yankee squadron off Hampton Roads, Va., when it attacked the U.S.S. Cumberland. Other Union ships fired back, but the shots were, in the words of one observer, “having no more effect than peas from a pop-gun.â€? • On March 3, 1931, President Herbert Hoover signs a congressional act making “The Star-Spangled Bannerâ€? the official national anthem of the United States. In 1814, Francis Scott Key composed the lyrics after witnessing the massive overnight British bombardment of Fort McHenry in Maryland during the War of 1812.

• On March 4, 1944, Louis “Lepkeâ€? Buchalter, the head of Murder, Inc., is executed at Sing Sing Prison in New York. Lepke was the leader of the country’s largest crime syndicate throughout the 1930s. His downfall came when several members of his notorious killing squad became witnesses for the government. • On March 9, 1959, the first Barbie doll goes on display at the American Toy Fair in New York City. Barbie was the first massproduced toy doll in the United States with adult features. Barbie’s appearance was modeled on a doll named Lilli, based on a German comic-strip character, and originally was marketed as a racy gag gift to adult men. • On March 5, 1977, the Dial-a-President radio program, featuring President Jimmy Carter and CBS news anchorman Walter Cronkite, airs for the first time. Approximately 9 million calls flooded the radio studio during the two-hour broadcast. • On March 7, 1987, Mike Tyson defeats James “Bonecrusherâ€? Smith to unify the WBA and WBC heavyweight titles. At age 20, Tyson became the youngest undisputed heavyweight champion in boxing history.

SNIPPETZ WEEKLY MAGAZINE ®

while on the treadmill because the music is good.

MID-WINTER WORKOUT STILL GOING STRONG

I

’m actually working out on a daily basis this winter. Unlike prior winters, where I could always find an excuse to avoid going to the gym -- it’s cold, it’s snowing, it takes too long to get there and back -- I’ve finally figured out how to get around my own faulty reasoning. A few months ago I wrote about purchasing a small manual treadmill, hoping that this would finally do the trick for me. I’ve put the treadmill in the living room (it leans up next to the wall when not in use), along with a selection of hand weights on the end table next to the lamp. And it works. While it’s not a full gym workout, it’s still a bit of exercise. I can watch the television while I walk, and have even used the seniors walking workout CD

The small hand weights have been useful, but I’m ready to upgrade to slightly heavier ones. Hint: Start with light weights, or you might get discouraged and not use them at all. The wrist and ankle weights have been used only a few times, as they can cause joint pain if put on the wrong place. For the wrist weights, it lessens the stress on joints if used farther up the arm, say halfway to the elbow. And ankle weights need a lot of padding underneath, but still won’t stay in place if walking. They do work for seated leg raises, however.

Home Care

So, there’s my mid-winter workout report. How are you doing with your workout resolutions? They say that if you can keep something going for 21 days, it can become routine.

With over 45 years of healthcare management experience, Amada will provide you with peace of mind in any given situation. Whether it’s post surgical recovery, disability, or illness, our Personal Care Coordinators and professional staff are here for you around the clock to meet your home care needs.

customer. The one area where Holmes isn’t afraid to spend, however, is on his employees, who he says deserve to be paid well. “We expect a lot from our employees. We compensate them fairly, and we expect them to participate,” says Holmes. “Life is not a spectator sport, so you need to get in the game.”

IN A JIFFY I

’m a Southern girl, so corn muffins and cornbread are a big part of a complete meal around our house. I have a wonderful recipe for cornbread from “scratch” when I have time to make it, usually on weekends. On weekdays, I reach for my trusty blue box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. Jiffy mixes are produced by the Chelsea Milling Company, operated by a family whose roots in the flour milling business date back to the early 1800s. “We have been milling flour here in Chelsea for over 120 years,” says company president Howdy S. Holmes. His grandmother, Mabel White Holmes, developed and introduced the company’s first prepared baking-mix product, Jiffy Baking Mix, in the spring of 1930. It now offers a variety of Jiffy mixes from muffins, brownies, cakes and frostings to pizza, pie crusts and their best-selling corn muffin mix. The company is built on a simple recipe -offer customers the highest-quality ingredients at the best price possible. “I think our consumers appreciate what we do, and that’s to offer value,” says Holmes. Thanks to Chelsea Milling Company’s success, Holmes says he’s reluctant to mess with the business model. “Everyone’s always in a hurry to change things,” says Holmes. “If something works, recognize you shouldn’t change it. You need to polish the system or the process from time to time, but if it works, leave it alone.” Chelsea Milling Company is a complete manufacturer. The entire operation is located in Chelsea, Mich., and its product is shipped out to all 50 states, as well as some foreign countries through the U.S. military. “Anytime you outsource something, there’s a profit number that doesn’t get calculated. So we make our own boxes; we store our own wheat; we mill our own flour; we do our own packaging; we do our own mixing; we do our own logistics,” says Holmes. Thanks to its in-house manufacturing, Holmes says Chelsea Milling is able to save money and pass on those savings to the

• It was Democratic governor and presidential hopeful Adlai Stevenson who made the following sage observation: “A free society is a place where it’s safe to be unpopular.” •Those who study such things claim that 75 percent of people who deliberately choose to buy a kosher product are not, in fact, Jewish. •Smart idea: Some fitness centers are now using the energy that clients expend on its exercise bikes to power the building’s lighting. •You might not have heard of American inventor Walter Hunt, but he came up with the ideas for an ice plough, a streetcar bell, an early version of the repeating rifle, artificial stone, the lockstitch sewing machine and a nail-making machine, among other things. One of his

smallest and most useful inventions was the safety pin. In the mid-1800s, Hunt owed a friend $15. In order to come up with the cash to settle the debt, he decided to invent something. He picked up an 8-inch piece of brass wire he had on hand and made a coil in the middle of it, creating the spring action to open it. He then devised a clasp at one end to shield the user from the sharp point. After the device was patented in 1849, Hunt sold the patent to W.R. Grace and Company for $400, leaving himself with $385 after he paid the initial $15 debt. Incidentally, W.R. Grace and Company made millions of dollars from sales of the safety pin. •Are you afraid of rattlesnakes? Keep in mind that the venom of a black widow spider is 15 times more deadly than that of the rattler. •Domestic diva Martha Stewart has been struck by lightning three times. *** Thought for the Day: “The luck of having talent is not enough; one must also have a talent for luck.” -- Hector Berlioz (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

INDIVIDUAL INSURANCE MANDATE

Tina Who already meets the minimum essential requirements? Existing compliance means you have coverage through a government plan (i.e. Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, TRICARE), employer provided health insurance, insured on your own

Failure to obtain coverage if you’re not one of the exceptions results in a fine. In 2014, the penalty will be the greater of $95 per adult, $47.50 per child, or 1 percent of household income. In 2015, $325 per adult, $162.50 per child, or 2 percent of household income. Read that again! Wow, that jumps up right quick. On a side note, the Affordable Care Act will help small businesses with fewer than 50 full time equivalents to attract decent employee talent. Since health

care benefits are becoming homogenized employers don’t have to compete necessarily on that level in the job market. And, most employers will find it easier to simply provide a stipend to their staff members as a way to provide health care through reimbursement.

hile the dust is still settling from the opening of the Healthcare Marketplace, many individuals remain unaware of the health care mandate and its requirements. The individual mandate to carry health insurance is unavoidable, and the rules are clear, get insurance or pay a penalty. Individuals are either exempt from the health insurance requirement, already meet the minimum essential requirements, or will face a penalty for having no insurance. Who is exempt from the requirement of carrying health insurance? Qualified exceptions include financial hardships, income not meeting minimum filing requirements, American Indians, uninsured for less than three consecutive months, illegal immigrants, health care ministry plan members, citizens living abroad, bona fide residents of any U.S. possession, and prison inmates.

to check whether the credit-card number is still good.

bringing Christ into your financial life

It takes time to call the bank or credit-card company, but do it anyway. It could mean you’ve been targeted for larger thefts.

INVESTING FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE

Here is some advice from the Better Business Bureau: • Ask for a new card if you see charges you don’t recognize.

SMALL-AMOUNT SCAM CAN COST YOU PLENTY

W

hen you check your credit-card statements every month for thefts, your eyes likely scan down the column of figures for large amounts that indicate scammers have used your card for major purchases. If you see a relatively small amount, only a few dollars, you might not investigate it even if you don’t remember making the purchase. The Better Business Bureau has put out a notice that some of the credit cards that were stolen over the holidays have had a specific amount charged -$9.84 -- on millions of cards, calling it a new scam. But it’s not new. This small-amount scam has been going on for years. In the beginning, scammers would order a small item from an online drugstore then cancel the shipment once the card was verified as being good. Why would scammers charge small amounts? From the scammers’ point of view, it’s still lucrative. If you charge 2 million credit cards and only put $2.50 on each one for your fake company, you still net $5 million. And using the smaller amounts makes it less likely that the thefts will be noticed, and the scam can continue for longer. Mostly, however, these small amounts are tests

• If you collect your mail and have it in the car with you, put the mail upside down on the seat if you leave the vehicle. • Look carefully at your landline phone bill each month. If you’re charged for three-way calls you didn’t make, complain and have the charges taken off. Those charges can appear every month, and the phone companies call it a glitch. • Also check your bank statement for odd amounts that you don’t understand. Have them removed if the amounts are there by accident. For example, the computer might think you are paying for certain services and debit your account every month.

Terry is the Chairman of the Black Forest History Committee. Because of the historic impact of this event on the residents of Black Forest and the surrounding areas, the Black Forest History Committee had the foresight to document this tragedy for future generations. This is a cautionary tale for all of us that live in Colorado’s woodlands. This event is free and refreshments will be served after the presentation.

mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and provide participants with an opportunity to fight back against the disease. Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups…people from all walks of life – all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s vision of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Relay For Life began in 1985 with one man who walked and ran around a track for 24 hours and raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. This year, Relay for Life will take place in nearly 5,100 communities in the United States and 20 other countries and will raise funds to support the Society’s mission of saving lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and fighting back.
