8 Ways to Use Technology For a More Positive Life | Computers & Internet – BabaMail

Technology isn’t just something we all have to feel puzzled by. In fact, it’s something we should all embrace to make our lives more positive. Here’s how.

1. Get yourself organized – As I’ve gotten older, even though I still live by myself, I’ve found that I do need help to manage everything from time to time. Rallyround is a great resource for allowing my family and friends to stay in touch with me and keep track of events, whether I need to do the groceries or arrange a meeting should I need to. My memory isn’t what it used to be, so this online organizer is great!

2. Check out the view in an exotic location. 

For many people, including me, it isn’t a possibility to just head off somewhere exotic on a whim, but I discovered that I can take myself to any location I please – in a virtual capacity that is! I love using Webcam Galore. One minute I can be on a glamorous cruise ship sailing the high seas, then I can be overlooking New York’s Times Square the next.
3. Ask for a wireless digital photo frame as your next present – I love putting pictures of significant events and people in my life around my home, but what if the picture in the frame can be updated digitally as and when needed? Last year, I asked for a wireless digital photo frame as a present. Soon after, my son-in-law sent a picture of my newborn grandson straight to it! My family sends snaps directly to my digital photo frame quite often, and this makes me feel like I’m part of whatever they’re doing.
4. Take a course

With the passage of time, I’ve come to learn that getting older doesn’t mean that I have to stop learning. There’s a whole range of correspondence courses available online that are specifically geared towards people just like you and me. Senior Planet has a great list for you to look at as an inspirational starting point, but if learning something new really interests you, you can always run a quick Google search to find something that really suits you.

5. Do your shopping  There are loads of online stores that deliver nationwide. I’m far too old to carry a big load of groceries by myself anymore, so online shopping really comes in handy. One of my favorite online stores is Amazon Grocery, however there are many more. They’ll deliver right to your door and at any time that’s convenient for you.

6. Have a group video chat

I recently invested in one of these new, fancy smart TVs, but I didn’t have a clue about how to operate it when I first had it installed. One of the things I like to do best is take part in group video chats with friends and family – right through my TV! The website I used to do this is SpeakSet.

7. Take hold of your fear of online scams

In the past, I’ve found that my fear of being scammed on the internet, especially with regard to emails I receive, has stopped me from partaking in activities, promotions or otherwise that seem appealing to me. Luckily, I came across Hoax Slayer, which specifically details the emails I should watch out for, as well as giving me reason not to worry about some others.
8. Use technology to do something amazing 

After I retired, I had a lot of free time on my hands that I didn’t really know what to do with. I realized that I could continue contributing to society without having to leave the comfort of my living room! TheGranny Cloud is a great initiative that was set up to give support to underprivileged children in India. You can read more about it here. I like to think of it as a virtual surrogacy – it’s very rewarding being able to talk to, be asked questions by and assist these children.

Maybe you could consider getting involved in this initiative, or a similar one, to enrich your life like you would never have imagined!

Tuesday, Oct 18 – Hearing on Death Penalty Referendum

Would Beatrice owe $28,000,000 if the prosecutors could not threaten the death penalty? Would 6 innocents be sent to prison? – keith —>   –

Learn more about the death penalty referendum and express your own opinion at a public hearing Tuesday, Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m., at the Nebraska State Capitol, Room 1525.

In 2015, the Nebraska Legislature passed a bill abolishing the death penalty. Gov. Ricketts vetoed the bill, but senators overrode the veto. 

Supporters of the death penalty gathered enough signatures to put a referendum on the Nov. 8 ballot, asking voters to overturn the Legislature’s action and reinstate the death penalty.

Tuesday’s hearing, required by law, will feature testimony from both supporters and opponents of the death penalty. Anyone attending will have the chance to speak – on either side of the issue.

Those who attend will learn more about this complicated referendum and will be able to speak out in support of their beliefs if they so desire.

Explanation of the Ballot Language

The referendum on the Nov. 8 ballot seeks to repeal the Nebraska Legislature’s action in 2015 that eliminated the death penalty and changed the maximum penalty for the crime of murder in the first degree to life imprisonment. 

When you vote, you are not voting directly to get rid of the death penalty or to keep it. You are voting to get rid of the Nebraska Legislature’s action or to keep it.

So a vote to RETAIN will eliminate the death penalty by retaining Legislative Bill 268. Those who believe Nebraska should NOT have the death penalty should vote “RETAIN.”

A vote to REPEAL will keep the death penalty by repealing Legislative Bill 268. Those who believe Nebraska SHOULD have the death penalty should vote “REPEAL.”

Becoming a caregiver can be daunting.

A new diagnosis can make your head whirl with questions on the mental changes and attitude shifts that occur when a person contracts a major disease, about how you’ll learn all you need to about senior care, how you’ll keep living as yourself, how your relationship will change with the person you’re caring for, and more.

I’ve assembled this list of books because they helped me either when I was caring for my parents, or since, in my work with other families coping with the challenges of senior care.  My hope is that this will be a good starting place for youa list of reliable, valuable resourcesthat can ease the caregiving tasks that lie ahead.

If you’ve found other great books on caregiving, please send me a list of your favorite titles.

All the best,

Lee Nyberg

Hologram fills an entire gym. Wow –

Hologram – I have never seen a hologram this big or this real. It shows it three times – the  first and last in real time and the middle one in slo-mo!

Unless you’ve seen this hologram… you’ve NEVER seen a hologram… guaranteed!   Talk about technology…
