One actually has to make an effort to stay away from staying fit.  A stone can be thrown and hit twenty gyms or health food stores in your local town alone.  Here’s something to introduce, use windows to stay fit.  That’s right, download the app, or as many as you can or want , to help keep your fitness goals on the mark.  Step counters, abs workouts, even timed workouts.  There’s Windows Workout Apps Worth looking at for that!  Some of us use so many excuses why a healthy workout cannot be fit in a day.  However, On average,  Twenty minutes a day is good enough just for better health and not even every day.  Every other day just to stay fit and reduce chance of sickness or disease.  For the more intense individuals, ” gym rats”, the gym is almost a second home and can be found pumping iron 5 to 7 days a week.

Not only is there many windows workout apps available, there are just as many dietary apps available also.  What are these?  Basically, these apps help keep the flip side of fitness on track as well.  One can work out all day every day, but if the body is not fed or if the body is fed poorly, poor results will be sure to ensue.  Personally, and I have to laugh a little, I have been told that since I workout, I don’t have to watch what I eat.   Well, not only did this information come from someone that doesn’t even workout, they were not in the industry of health and were very out of shape on top of that too.  Needless to say, I watch what I eat and prepare my meals for the week so I always have something ready to go.  Supplements are usually good to add into your diet as well.  Usually supplements are exactly that.  These additions to your lifestyle diet will help get the nutrients the body needs that are not usually taken in due to one reason or another.

Say time is not the issue but money is.  How does getting those Windows Workout Apps free sound?  That’s right, many apps ( workout and dietary apps included ) can be found for free or for a very small price.  We all have to do what’s best for ourselves but doesn’t it make sense to at least make the attempt to take care of ourselves while we’re on this Earth if not for our own sake but for your family, friends and even co-workers?  Remember, people that exercise generally extend their life.  At minimum, those that partake in a good workout at least three times a week and watch what they eat have, on average, a better quality of life.  Provided you are interested in better health, clearer thinking and a better overall lifestyle try a trail membership at a local gym.  Perhaps start smaller than that.  Just go for a brisk walk for twenty a day.   Get up earlier and go!  Everyone has 24 hours in a day, how will you use yours?*

*You should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting this or any other fitness program to determine if it is right for your needs. This is particularly true if you (or your family) have a history of high blood pressure or heart disease, or if you have ever experienced chest pain when exercising or have experienced chest pain in the past month when not engaged in physical activity, smoke, have high cholesterol, are obese, or have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. Do not start this fitness program if your physician or health care provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.

Legal counsel you deserve

legal counsel, legal aid, lawMost of us will need some kind of legal counsel for one reason or another and the last thing we want is a legal adviser to be expensive.  When the need for legal counsel is necessary, people want someone helpful and trustworthy too.  What seems to be an ongoing dilemma is the fact of attorney’s being so expensive and even trying to find an attorney in the area of law that you need at that particular time.  Let’s face it, when a legal issue arises we should not have to limit our rights based on how much law we can afford.  Unfortunately, this scenario is all too true.

To level the playing field, there is a company that allows anyone to contact an attorney (in the area of law needed) on an unlimited monthly basis to help with the legal issues that somehow manifest in daily life.  Now instead of worrying about a bill for potentially hundreds of dollars an hour, how about having a network of law firms available to you, even in an emergency.  All without an hourly bill

This 40+ year old company that is providing this magnificent law service is also paired with the world leader in risk management.  In short, any company that can help reissue a social security number to individuals as well as fully restore identity while you go about your life has my complete attention and respect.  Not to mention helping countries worldwide assist in finding assets  of questionable individuals when other companies wouldn’t or couldn’t.

Many times it’s been said to show rather than tell.  In respect to that statement I’m going to do both.   First of all, to take advantage of this legal service here is the link that will get you all legal help you need right away.

Maybe you want some more information about what exactly is being presented here.  The informative video here is roughly 14 minutes in length so if you like before watching go get some popcorn, a drink and see how many ways this service will not only help you but protect your family as well

Lastly, for my Iphone and Ipad users (sorry droid we’ll have to wait) I want to give you this free app to download on your device to use at your will  that gives you access to 1200 frequently asked legal questions that will help clear the air on the law in question.

Microsoft Windows 10 Features http://muffolettocs.com/2015/10/05/microsoft-windows-10-features/ Tue, 06 Oct 2015 00:38:05 +0000 http://muffolettocs.com/?p=1196 Windows 10, like it or hate it, provides some helpful features that may prove useful when using this new operating system.

Microsoft CortanaWindows 10, like it or hate it, provides some helpful features that may prove useful when using this new operating system. First let’s talk Microsoft Cortana. Even though you’ll need a microphone to tell your computer how to serve you, you’ll still have to take some time to get her to know more about you. The more you use her for commands the more you’ll gain the relationship you’re looking for.
Another new feature is the redesigned Windows 10 start menu. Microsoft tried to get away from the traditional start menu when Windows 8 was introduced but later found out that this was not the greatest of decisions. Basically the new start menu that windows 10 boasts are a cross between the start menus in Windows 7 mixed with the start screen found in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 including all the functionality of both.
Windows 10 will allow users to access their files much quicker now and customize that feature differently than before. Now users can perform a quick view of their files or by default and see the most frequently opened and used files to help get searches done a bit quicker.
Like the idea of virtual desktops? You’ll be happy to know that several virtual desktops can be manipulated allowing you to place your apps in discrete places all while being able to share between desktops.
Big brother finally backed off as well! Finally, users can tell when Windows can update and restart your computer when they are ready, not the other way around. Windows 10 updates can even be acquired via other sources, not just through Microsoft. Updates can actually be installed per-to-peer using the appropriate configuration.
Techies and self helpers will love the fact that command prompt tools can be used effortlessly, yes you can copy and paste using the dos commands, edit your options insides command prompt properties.
A video can also be created using windows 10 Game DVR function. This feature is awesome for catching your greatest hits during your favorite game and perhaps even record a “how to” that you create. These features definitely stand out but of course don’t stop here though. To find out more, take advantage of Microsoft’s Windows 10 free download if your computer qualifies or enjoy it on your new computer powered by Microsoft Windows.

Overstock BLOWOUT! Everything MUST GO!

8 Ways to Protect Your Smartphone

Failing to protect your smartphone or tablet leaves your personal information vulnerable to thieves and hackers. Your personal information may be used to obtain credit, access bank accounts or make fraudulent purchases. These tips are designed to help you secure your smartphone or tablet and protect your personal information.

1. Set your phone to automatically lock when not in use. Leaving your phone unlocked is asking for trouble. If your phone or tablet is stolen or misplaced, keeping it locked will help protect your data. Some phones and devices can be configured to delete all stored data when an incorrect password is entered multiple times.

2. Use strong passwords and update them on a regular basis. Secure passwords include numbers, symbols, lowercase and capital letters. You should not use your name or other easily identifiable information such as a street address or birth date in your password. Do not use the same password for all of your accounts. It is also important to periodically update your passwords.

3. Beware of free open Wi-Fi hotspots. Configure your phone to only join networks you approve. Scammers sometimes set up free wireless networks in public places to lure users to log on. Joining the network could allow the scammer to track data going to and from your phone.

4. Update your device’s software. Hackers are continually looking for new security flaws to exploit. Many software updates include important security patches that repair known flaws. Failing to update your software or apps may leave you vulnerable to hackers.

5. Location and anti-theft applications may help you locate a lost phone or deactivate a stolen phone. There are a wide variety of apps that help users locate a lost or stolen phone. Some apps allow you to delete data remotely or completely disable the device. Check reviews and specifications carefully and test the software before your phone is lost or stolen so you know how to use it when the time comes.

6. Only download reviewed and tested applications. Some apps and websites may include malicious software designed to capture your personal information. Read reviews and research new apps before installation.

7. Use encryption to protect sensitive information. If you use your phone or other mobile device for particularly sensitive business or financial communications, talk to your IT professional about using encryption to protect your data.

8. Report your device as lost or stolen. In an effort to curb the rising rate of smartphone theft, some mobile carriers track stolen phones and tablets. Tracking systems only work when thefts are reported. While you might not get your phone or tablet back, these systems can help disable the growing black market for stolen devices. You should also report any theft to your local police department

Do you Google? Searching the internet without being afraid of your computer!

To “Google something” is to search the internet for information by using the Google search engine. The Google search engine is a commonly used search engine that helps you find web pages that are important and relevant to your search.
There are other search engines such as, Bing, Yahoo, MSN, etc. Find one you are comfortable with and matches your style of learning. Some search engines are easier to navigate then others, but basically, it comes down to personal preference.

Once you have decided on a search engine, ( we will use Google for today’s lesson) you need to type in the engine into your search bar.

The “WWW” stands for World Wide Web. The “web” is where you are getting your information. The search engines, such as Google, help you find the information more efficiently. The white blank bar you see is called the “search bar.” Enter the word or phrase you are seeking to search, for example; bears.
Press the enter key on the right-hand side of your key board that is attached to your computer to get the results of your search.

Start with something easy… let’s search “bears.” When searching the word “bears,” Google will bring up links for you to click with your mouse pointer, to read up on bears. The word “bears,” however, can give you a very wide variety of links to research! To avoid this, you want to narrow your search options. What kinds of bears are you trying to research? Polar bears, Chicago Bears, teddy bears? It is always helpful to type as much information into the Google search bar to get you the information you are looking for quickly.
Let’s pretend we are going to search for “white bears.” How can we narrow this search even further? Are you looking for white teddy bears, white bears in South America, white bear cubs? Maybe you want to know what white baby polar bears eat. Try searching; “white polar bears, cubs, meal source.”
You can also do an image search on the same exact set of words. Go back to your Google search bar and instead of pointing your mouse arrow at the word Web, point and click on the word Images.

Searching for information on your computer is fast and easier than most people image. It may take a little time and practice, but in no time, you will be navigating around the World Wide Web like a pro!

How Well Do You Know Your Computer?

Let’s face it, in today’s world, almost everything is done electronically. Our address books, our bank statements, our precious photos…they are all stored on our computer. What happens, however if that information is stored on our computer, but our basic knowledge of how to retrieve is minimal? You wait. You wait on a friend or a loved one to get what you could easily retrieve yourself in minutes. The truth is, you CAN learn to use your computer yourself, no matter what your age, educational background, no matter how complicated it appears.
The first thing you need to learn to do is get to know your computer. There are three types of ; Desktop Computers, Laptop Computers and Handheld Computers, also known as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), more commonly known as, tablets, Ipads, Kindles, etc.
There is a lot of technical things I can tell you about your computer, such as the processing speed and the game cards you can use, but for beginners purposes, I will leave those out and just focus on the four general main parts of your computer.

Screen/ Monitors – Most screen/monitors these days are flat instead of the heavier box style. If you have a box style, don’t worry, it will work just fine! This is where you will see all your information, just like a television screen. A few are touch screen, meaning you can use your fingers right on the screen to actually press buttons to make things work. This is true of tablets but is becoming more popular with desktop and laptop style computers. Don’t worry if you don’t have one. You’re computer is not out of date.

Keyboard – They keyboard is where you type your information into your computer. Most keyboards are now set up with a QWERTY layout. This simply means the letters are laid out in the most efficient manner for a faster and smoother typing speed. If you look at your keyboard, you will notice that the top six keys spell QWERTY, which is how it gets its name.
*Note On a tablet or other PDA, the keyboard will be a touch screen but you can usually purchase a plug in mini keyboard if you so chose.
Mouse – Your mouse is what controls where you type on the screen. There are two types; one stays connected to the keyboard by a cord which is convenient because it cannot be lost, the other type is wireless mouse. It is still connected into the keyboard, but only by a plug, allowing for less restrictive movement.
Modem – Your computer’s modem is what communicates all your information to your telephone lines, satellites, and other wireless lines. Your disk drives are also in your modem. The disk drive plays DVDs, CDs, reads hard and floppy disks and one of the transfer your pictures to your computer with a flash drive. (We can discuss this another week)

Each week, I will be bring you straight forward, easy-to-learn information. We will continue to learn more about the computer, how to surf the internet, upload pictures, and other basic computer subjects that will have you going from clueless to confident in no time!

Check back each week, and tell you friends who need the extra computer help! They won’t be sorry.
