Meal Plan for January Week 1

Image
Welcome to 2018! Our contributor Summer Miller is back to share her meal plans for the month of January. To start us off on the right foot, she has a few thoughts to share on New Year’s resolutions, healthy eating, and what this all means to her.A few years ago, I found the remnants of a New Year’s Resolution list tucked into the folds of an old notebook stashed in the bottom drawer of an even older desk. The list was written nearly a decade prior, and I realized I’d been trying to lose the same 10 pounds for years.From that moment on, I changed the way I looked at resolutions. Rather than jotting down a list of goals I’d hope to accomplish, lose 10 lbs., be on Oprah etc., I wrote down a list of words or phrases that represent who I wanted to become.Continue reading "Meal Plan for January Week 1" »

If you're currently residing in an area where temperatures are below zero, you are not alone. As a deep freeze settles in across America, there are so many people who are currently colder than you — and that alone should give you solace.All across the country except in beautiful sunny, better Los Angeles (sorry New York), temperatures are dropping into the teens and below.

All the news that fits won't print as the New York Times closes its BlackBerry 10 app next month

Image
BlackBerry and its faithful had high hopes for BlackBerry 10. After all, the company that developed the operating system, QNX, received high marks for its work on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. BlackBerry was so impressed that it bought the company and had it get right to work on its next-gen operating system for smartphones, later dubbed BlackBerry 10. While the gesture based OS shared some of its capabilities with webOS, and there were some who loved the software, the hardware was a let down for many.

Instead of offering top-shelf handsets to compete with Apple and Samsung, BlackBerry ...

Floridians face a full ban on texting while driving if legislature passes new bill

For now, Florida is one of seven states that requires those texting while driving to have committed another infraction before being charged with distracted driving. But that is about to change. The Florida state legislature will soon discuss the possibilities of pushing through a bill that will make texting while driving a primary offense. That means that the cops will be able to nail someone behind the wheel who is texting even if they aren't speeding, shifting lanes without flashing their signal, or driving a vehicle that doesn't have a license.

First time offenders under the bill, would ...

Alleged Huawei P20, P20 Plus, and P20 Pro designs leak out, triple cameras everywhere

In the last three years, Huawei released P8, P9, and P10 series of smartphones, so we're now expecting the company to introduce a P11 family. However, this might not happen. According to a few leaked images originating from China, Huawei's next generation P-series handsets should be called P20.   Said images show schematics that allegedly reveal the overall design of three new Huawei P20 smartphones - a regular P20, a P20 Plus, and a P20 Pro. Apparently, all three handsets will offer triple rear cameras (though positioned differently). According to a previous report, Huawei's upcoming triple ...

Apple starts offering its $29 battery replacements today, two days earlier than expected

A couple days ago, Apple apologized for throttling the CPU of certain iPhone models. Apple says that it did this so that the handsets' lack of prime battery power wouldn't shut them down when handling certain tasks. Along with the apology came a deal from the company. Since weak batteries are at the heart of the issue, Apple is allowing you to replace the cells on the iPhone 6 and up for $29. That is a $50 discount from the usual price of $79.

The deal was expected to start on January 1st 2018 and runs through the end of next year. An Apple spokesman said that it expected to need more time ...

As you likely know, that didn't happen, so the iPhone X currently comes in only two color variants: silver and space gray. Meanwhile, both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (announced at the same time with the iPhone X) have gold versions, in addition to space gray and silver ones.   So why wouldn't the iPhone X come in gold, too? According to a previous report, well-informed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple had encountered unspecified ...

Image
OnePlus teased the Android Oreo open beta of the 5T a few days ago but didn't exactly said when the update will be available for download.

Well, if you have a OnePlus 5T, you'll be pleased to know the update is now live, so if you want to test Android Oreo before the final version gets released, you can now download this open beta build and flash it on your phone.

You should know that since this is a beta build, it's not as stable as an official OTA, which means you'll be exposed to data loss. Make sure you join OnePlus' open beta program before ...

Today’s unanswered question: Why do organizations think they are secure?

Recently I’ve been asking friends, colleagues and clients what they think are the most important unanswered questions in tech. I thank Ian Murphy, who works in the security industry, for the following conundrum:“Why do companies with little or no real security experience think they know their environment better than anyone else? That is, because it’s ‘their”’ network, they feel best placed to identify attackers (even those with advanced techniques who hide in the normal traffic noise)?” It’s a good one. I’ve been working in IT for decades and I remain baffled how we lock up our houses, secure our vehicles, seal away our valuables and yet, in the corporate environment, senior executives still question the need for security expertise.
