Travel Tip: When traveling with kids, give each one their own entertainment bags. You can fill it with music, a book or two, stickers, activity books, crayons, and small toys. They can also pack their own water bottle and snacks for the trip, as well as a change of clothes in case of a spill. This gives them something of their own on the journey and relieves you of having to dig in a large bag for their items. Green Living Tip If your tires are underinflated, your car will not travel as efficiently and your gas mileage will suffer. To find the correct air pressure level for your vehicle, look inside the driver’s side door. There should be a recommended pressure level. If it is not there, you can find this information in your car’s manual. Check the pressure in your tires at least once a month and add air whenever necessary. Food Tip Berries can spoil quickly, so be sure to buy the freshest ones you can find. Once you get home, place them in your refrigerator in their original packaging. Don’t wash them until you are ready to use them, as they spoil more quickly if they are damp.
STRANGE BUT TRUE By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, Ph.D.
Q. Why are love songs so moving to so many of us? A. They obviously pique our sense of beauty, memory, regret, longing, sensuality. And there’s this: the “honest signal hypothesis.” People may wish to deceive one another for any number of reasons, but music is an honest signal, says McGill University’s Daniel J. Levitin in “The World in Six Songs.” A person who is singing would be less able to fake emotions, goes the theory. For reasons that aren’t fully understood, we seem to be exquisitely sensitive to the emotional state of singers. When someone tells us they love us, we may have our doubts but when they sing it, all our doubts seem to melt away. “This may be something beyond our rational control - singing matters.” Perhaps this is why people become FURIOUS when they find that singers are lip-syncing. It may also explain our fascination with the private lives of rock singers: “If they are not living the life they profess in their songs, our truth detectors go wild.” Real love requires an almost irrational trust and faith in another person, making the link between truth and love a psychological linchpin of human interaction. And it may be why love songs are the most common pop type.

Protect Your Home Before Going On Vacation
(StatePoint) While the warmer months are the most popular time for travel, they’re also the most popular for home burglaries. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 65.8 percent of burglaries are residential and occur in 8 to 12 minutes. Burglars also search for homes that are unoccupied. Since nothing ruins a vacation more than worrying, make sure you’ve taken sufficient measures to deter burglars and thieves from entering your home. Here are some tips to keep your home safe and secure while you’re away: * Never indicate that you’re away from home on your answering machine message. Turn down your telephone ringer volume. Unanswered telephone calls can alert burglars to an empty home. * Show activity in your home while you’re away. Keep a car in the driveway, and keep interior and exterior lights on a timer. Consider a randomized version to turn your lights on and off at various intervals so they don’t all come on at once or always on the same schedule). * Eliminate easy entry points by keeping entry doors, windows and the garage door closed and locked while away. To secure sliding doors, invest in a door security bar that prevents unauthorized entry, such as those made by Master Lock. * Suspend newspaper and other deliveries while you’re out of town. Also, visit www.usps.com to hold your mail service. * If you’re worried that people who may have access to your house keys -- contractors, babysitters, former roommates
-- might try to enter while you’re away, a new product called NightWatch can help secure your home. With an ingenious locking mechanism, this deadbolt prevents anyone from opening a door from the outside, even with a key. Install them on all doors except one while you’re away, to prevent unauthorized keyed entry. * Most people hide their valuables in one of three places -- a dresser drawer, the bedroom closet, or the freezer. Thieves know this, so it’s better to invest in a proper home safe to protect jewelry, firearms, cash and other valuables. * Given the rise in identity theft, consider installing password protection software on your home computer to deter tech-savvy thieves. For example, Master Lock Vault is a combination website-mobile application that keeps all your usernames and passwords safe and secure, free of charge. You can find out more at www. masterlockvault.com. * Give your lawn one last trim, or ask a neighbor to do it for you while you’re gone. An unkempt lawn can encourage thieves. * Lastly, good neighborly relations are a great deterrent to crime. Offer to keep an eye on your neighbor’s property while they’re away and they’ll likely do the same for you. For more information on how to keep your home safe while on vacation, visit www.masterlock.com. Once you’ve secured your homefront you can rest easier on your vacation.
STROKE IDENTIFICATION It only takes a minute to read this...A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. RECOGNIZING A STROKE Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. It is sunny out today) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke - Stick Out Your Tongue NOTE: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.

On March 30, 1867, Secretary of State William H. Seward bought the area that would become the state of Alaska for $7.2 million. Many people did not think Seward had made a good purchase and called the area in the cold far north “Seward’s Folly” or “Seward’s Icebox.” It would take several years before everyone would realize the importance of Alaska and agree it should become a state. There were many arguments made for and against Alaska becoming a state. Some people thought it was too far away and had too few residents to make it a state. Others thought it would make a great state because of its industries and natural resources like gold and oil. The arguments dragged on for several years before Congress passed a bill to make Alaska a state. On July 7, 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Alaska Statehood Act, paving the way for it to become the 49th state of America on January 3, 1959.

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. – Mahatma Gandhi The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way. – Robert Kiyosaki Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength. – Arnold Schwarzenegger Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. – Tao Te Ching Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses. – Marilyn vos Savant Strength is the ability to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands—and then eat just one of those pieces. – Judith Viorst Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts, not amid joy. – Arthur Helps True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself. – Henry Miller Concentration is the secret of strength. – Ralph Waldo Emerson Strength is happiness. Strength is itself victory. In weakness and cowardice there is no happiness. When you wage a struggle, you might win or you might lose. But regardless of the short-term outcome, the very fact of your continuing to struggle is proof of your victory as a human being. – Daisaku Ikeda When I dare to be powerful—to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. – Audre Lorde

Is It Safe To Use The Internet In Public Places? (StatePoint) Americans love going online. In fact, a recent study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project and the Wi-Fi Alliance found that half of all adults go online with a laptop using a Wi-Fi connection while 40 percent use the Internet on mobile phones. Going online in public is convenient. Public Wi-Fi networks let us check e-mail, update social media profiles, and shop almost anywhere. But should we? How safe is the personal information we send over public networks? “Most people don’t realize that Wi-Fi signals are just radio waves, and anyone can ‘listen’ to what you’re sending just as easily as tuning a radio to the right station,” says Kent Lawson, Founder and CEO of Private Communications Corporation, a new online security technology company. That’s because the majority of Wi-Fi hotspots in airports, planes, coffee houses and other public places aren’t encrypted. That makes them havens for data thieves who’ve walked off with millions of Wi-Fi users’ credit card and Social Security numbers. There are some steps you can take to keep your information safe, says Lawson. If you’re using public computers, such as those at the library, don’t save anything on them. Make sure to close the browser and clear the cache when you’re done. In addition, limit your activities, because someone might have installed “key stroke tracking” software, which can watch everything you do, and capture your log-in information.
If you’re using your own computer with public Wi-Fi access, be even more careful. For example, be cautious about what you put in email messages. Credit card and social security numbers and home addresses should be avoided. Never bank or shop, unless the site is secure -- the web addresses should start with “https” not “http.” And turn off file sharing to prevent someone from gaining access to your hard drive. Or, for better peace of mind, you can install software that encrypts all data going into and out of your computer, such as PCC’s Private WiFi. This makes you invisible to hackers on any public network, anywhere in the world. While antivirus protects you from viruses and firewalls prevents unauthorized access to your information while you communicate, Private WiFi encrypts all the information you send. All three work in tandem to keep you safe. If you use your mobile phone to access the Internet, make sure you password protect it and install security software. You can also enroll in a back-up/wiping program, which backs-up your information and also can delete it if your phone is lost or stolen. These services are available from your phone’s manufacturer or your wireless provider. For more tips to keep your information safe over public Wi-Fi networks, visit www.privatewifi.com or www.private-i. com. In this digital age, our lives are increasingly lived online, so be sure to incorporate the right protections.

True Stories from the Field
Baseball is not only full of action, suspense, and fun--it is also a sport where humor and wit find a home. These tales are true accounts of baseball related fun. A reporter asked Alex Johnson about his two most recent seasons. “Last year, you hit two homers and this year you have seven. What’s the difference?” Johnson replied, “Five.” Baltimore’s Jim Palmer felt rebuffed by Boston manager Darrell Johnson after being snubbed from the All-Star game. When asked about his reaction and reports that he had called Johnson an idiot, Palmer stated, “I did not call Johnson an idiot. Someone else did and I just agreed.” Yankee Johnny Blanchard was distraught after learning he was being traded to Kansas City. His teammate, Mickey Mantle, tried to console him. “Don’t take it so hard, John. Just think, in Kansas City, you’re going to get a chance to play.” Blanchard became more upset. “Heck, I can’t play, Mick. That’s why I’m crying.” Bob Gibson was watching teammate Curt Flood as Flood completed batting practice. “Way to hit the ball,” commented Gibson. “If I could hit the ball that way, I’d take off my toeplate and retire from pitching.” Flood smiled in appreciation of the comment. “In fact,” continued Gibson, “if I hit the way you do, I think I’d also retire from baseball.”

With rising energy costs, a simple preventative measure such as sealing only makes sense. (NAPSA)-There’s no place like home when it comes to reducing energy costs. As crude oil and natural gas prices rise, many homeowners look for ways to reduce energy costs at home. One simple step-sealing-can have a huge impact on an energy bill. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, air leakage through tiny holes and cracks accounts for 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling a typical home. By sealing doors and windows, the average family that spends $2,500 a year on energy costs could save $500 per year. Although many homeowners know that sealing can easily be a do-it-yourself job, surprisingly few homeowners actually undertake such projects. Here’s what they have to do to save $500: • The most benecial sealing project is windows. For effective sealing, place weather stripping around windows and apply caulk around the windows, both inside and out, where needed. • Ill-tting doors are another source of leaks and should also be
sealed. Anywhere you can see light, air can come in. • You may be surprised to learn that the biggest air leaks in a home can be hidden in an attic or basement. The sum of these small openings can equal as much airow as an open window. Be sure to seal both holes and small cracks. Pay particular attention to areas around joints, vents and chimneys. Many experts prefer silicone caulk, such as GE Silicone II, because it is the best seal against water and the elements. Silicone doesn’t shrink or crack, and moves as the home expands and contracts with the temperature. For less than $20, the cost of enough silicone to seal the average size home, you could save up to $500 a year on heating costs. Now there is even a paintable silicone on the market, GE’s Silicone II XST, combining the superior performance of a silicone and the paintability of an acrylic. For more information on the best sealant to use, you can visit www.gesealants.com or call 866-ASK-GESA.

Green Beer...and Other Strange Things. Colors are a festive part of every holiday. Red & green make us thing of Christmas; orange & black are Halloween; and delicate pastels mean Easter. Bright Kelly green can only be St. Patrick’s Day. But for many people the fun of these holidays is spoiled by those same colors when they are added to food. Food colorings were once made from vegetables & berries, but today most of them are synthesized from petroleum. Researchers have found that additives such as these can trigger asthma, headaches & hives in adults, as well as learning and behavior problems in sensitive children. There are better ways to make food appealing to children without consuming petro-chemicals, according to the Feingold Association, a nonprofit organization helping children with problems such as hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder. Use green plastic shamrocks and other inedible decorations on your natural white cupcakes. Serve lemonade or one of the natural lemon-lime sodas in a green plastic cup, then provide colorful holiday napkins. To learn how you can locate foods free of petroleum-based additives, send a long self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Feingold Association, Dept. 193G, 37 Shell Road 2nd Floor, Rocky Point, NY 11778 or call 631-3699340 or visit: www.feingold.org.
