Spy Technology: How To Be A Spy

One may wonder what problems there are that could be solved by using surveillance equipment. Some think that these things can be used inappropriately or unethically. But if used legally and in good conscience, you can gather solid legal evidence for yourself, easily. For instance, you can use spying tech to hide cameras around your home for protection. If you live in an area with any crime, you can use information you have gathered to catch a criminal. Or, have slightly smaller issues around the house? Using hidden video surveillance can help you uncover who has been eating all the cookies, leaving the lights on, or anything you can imagine!
Another technology you can use to spy on others is audio technology. This can be very useful to monitor what goes in and out of your house. There have been cases where a hidden recorder has been placed in the phone of another spouses, leading to catching adultery in the act. Having this kind of evidence would continue its legal use, as it may help your case in a divorce battle. Monitoring one’s kids may also be something for a home spy to consider. If you are finding it difficult to find out where your child is going or what they may be doing, information gathered from a phone conversation will be able to provide you with the peace of mind that you know what they are getting into.
With the Internet so easily accessible, along with its plethora of adult related content and other things one may not want their kids to see, monitoring the home computer is very important. This is an example of how spy technology can be used in a very productive way to ensure your family’s safe usage of the Internet. If you have physical access to the computer, you may plant a key-logger between the keyboard and the computer itself. This will tell you everything that is typed into the computer. Other, more sophisticated computer spy-ware is available, but it may take an expert user or technician to run properly.
One last readily useful surveillance device one can use is a GPS tracker. Parents may find these useful to be able to check on the location of their kids at anytime. The most basic of these devices are small, looking like a thumb drive. Once placed, or hidden, in a car, they can then be removed and hooked up to a computer. Then, the device will provide a map and route of everywhere that car went that day. Smaller things include that which you can hide within a mobile device. The latter being useful to know exactly where the person was that day.
The uses for home spying equipment are almost endless. But, one must always make sure not to break privacy laws or invade privacy. These things must be used only for personal use and very ethically. Once you are assured that you are within the law and are acting legally, it is time become a real spy!…

Increase Brain Power With Brainwave Technology

The human mind is very crucial for effective body functioning. It controls all aspects of your body. Instructions to body cell operations originate from your mind and the failure of the mind to issue instructions to body cells results in undesirable outcomes. People who have brain dysfunctions or those whose brain power is low have been labeled names that are not amusing at all. It is very possible for an individual to change or improve the power of his or her mind towards personal development. If you can manage to increase brain power, you can be sure that you will smoothly take the road to success in life. This may involve engaging your mind in disciplines helpful in mind evolution.
Scientists have researched and found out that man underutilizes the brain, estimating that 33 percent of the human brain is utilized leaving out a whole 67 percent unutilized. They have further revealed that genius people use slightly more brain as compared to other normal people. Genius brain usage is slightly above 33 percent. This explains why geniuses are more innovative and creative compared to other people using only 33 percent of their brain.
Every person desires to increase brain power. Several ways exist to help you increase mind power, but experts advice that anyone seeking the utilization of a certain method to increase mind power should seek professional advice and guidance. This is so because some methods especially where drugs are involved can turn out to be harmful if not properly applied. One of the methods to increase brain power that require monitoring by professionals is antidepressant which involve chemicals that, if not well administered, may cause addiction. However safe the method might appear from the outside, thorough research is needed before one starts using the method of his or her choice.
Brainwave entrainment has been known for having no adverse after-effect and this has made the technique gain popularity among most people. Binaural beats have been widely used to increase brain power and the outcomes of this mind power technique have been quite desirable. There are numerous mind power techniques, but this technique has proved so perfect in its functionality as well as outcome. The method employs the use of certain beat frequencies in soothing and slipping the human mind into various states of mind.

Rocker Technology: The Latest in Comfort Footwear

Rocker technology is all the rage in athletic shoes right now. They are recognized as having a curved rocker shape on the soles of the shoes. These shoes are being advertised heavily, and bought, because they promote great health habits. There are lots of TV commercials showing runners and walkers moving along with ease because they are wearing their rocker shoes. And yes, it’s true that these shoes, for the most part, deliver for runners and walkers. But they have built in advantages for nursing shoes also.
First, rocker shoes are comfortable. This is of the utmost importance for the nurse who is working a 12 hour shift. Imagine having to walk up and down the halls of the hospital, back and forth, all day and night for 12 hours. Even if you subtract breaks, the nurse will do many miles of walking during one of their shifts. Even if they get to sit down at the nurses station, rocker shoes help. Traditional shoes would absorb all of the weight and the shock of the body, even when someone is sitting down. With rocker nursing shoes, the feet will have a cushion by way of the high insoles, and the high rocker sole. The curvature of the rocker sole helps in weight transfer during the walking motion.
This leads to another advantage of rocker technology in rocker shoes. The shoes will lead to all around improved posture. Posture is key for comfort and proper body function when standing up, or sitting down. If the nurse has bad posture, then not only will the nurse hurt, but the nurse won’t be able to healthily perform duties, such as lifting and moving patients, and beds. On the other hand, if the nurse has good posture when they are sitting down, or they are standing up, then they won’t experience so much enduring pain. Their nursing duties will be a lot more tolerable if they wear nursing shoes with rocker soles.
Rocker technology in nursing shoes will help to absorb shock when performing duties such as bending and lifting. If you think about how hard the floor is, and then having to carry hundreds of pounds, then you’ll quickly realize that this is a lot of burden on the knees, back, and lower body all around. However, the rocker technology will help to absorb that shock, and it will help to rock the feet in a way that is a lot more accommodating to lifting and bending.
Furthermore, a nurse can realize a healthier back and legs. With the rocker shoes, the nurse will gain the same benefits that a runner, jogger, or walker would. A stronger lower body would again contribute to the nurse being able to better perform their duties when they wear nursing shoes that have rocker technology in them. It’s a good feeling knowing that there are nursing shoes that will help to make the shift more tolerable, and build up the body at the same time.
Is rocker technology new? Actually, Cherokee Shoes initially offered rocker soles on their athletic style nursing shoes in the 1980’s. The Cherokee Achiever quickly became a top selling nursing shoe because of the comfort offered and the benefits of easy weight transfer while walking and moving. It is not surprising that rocker technology first appeared in nursing shoes as no working footwear is more heavily relied on to provide support and comfort than nursing shoes. Every nurse will tell you that protecting their feet is of prime importance to job performance for a healthcare professional.…

Not All Religious Fundamentalists Are Against Technology – He Said

There are some religions which are against technology, not many but some adamantly oppose it, even consider that it is unholy and definitely unwholesome – take the Amish for instance, still driving horse buggies, and they have done pretty well without a lot of new technology haven’t they? Well luckily in the US we allow freedom of religion even if we ourselves might not fully understand why it is they have such beliefs. There is a bit of intrigue to it, and I am sure at times we wish we could all simplify our own lives and just for one day – turn it all off.
Still, not long ago, I was having just such a similar conversation. “Just because someone is a devout religious follower, would not make them against modern technology,” an acquaintance recently reminded me. Yes, I suppose, but we must also realize that often enough technology is a threat to organized religion, just as the Internet is. Perhaps, that’s why many nations which have a government based on a religious way of life or even a nationalism motif replacing religion fear the information refuting their indoctrination of the people waking them up.
Nevertheless, I asked my acquaintance if he would argue this point or if he was merely just alerting me to the reality that others have argued that point? I suppose it depends on what one’s definition of what modern is, and what religion is it we might be discussing. I mean modern is like a fork in the road up ahead, you assume it’s there somewhere, but don’t see it yet, over the next rise, hill, dry river crossing, around the next corner, or maybe it’s just past the next tree, did we pass by it in the fog and miss the turn-off, you see?
Nationalism can often be a replacement for religion, but the same reality can hold true, as technology is a threat and a blessing to the stability of the society or civilization, especially modern disruptive type technologies you see. Now then, let’s go ahead and use an example here shall we? Iran is a fundamentalist nation, in fact it is an “Islamic Republic” and those in charge are fundamentalists, but nevertheless, they like technology and want all they can get.
Perhaps, this is why the Iranian regime put forth a plan to go nuclear, nuclear power, nuclear weapons, and all the technology they can get their hands on right? Thus it would be unwise to assume that religious folks are against modern technology, even if it is a big risk to their future existence, information is power and if a religion is zapping that power from the people, then such a religion might not be a long-term guarantee for stability with lots of modern technology around – especially computer and internet tech. Please consider all this and think on it.…

Digital Technology – Out With the Old, In With the New

How has our world changed over the years? Digital technology is so prevalent today that we may not think about what we have lost. Do we really know what we have given up, or are we like the frog in the kettle of water? Sitting in this pot of water, we do not appear to realize the temperature is rising and where we started out is not where we started. What was familiar is no longer around and something different has taken its place.

We are all familiar with the big changes like expanding air travel to space travel. We have come to embrace change like what has happened with the introduction of home computers. However, have we really come to understand the impact these new inventions have had on our lives? In this article, it is my intent to bring to awareness some of those changes. Recognizing some of the things we do not have ready access to today may prompt us to look for alternatives before they are completely gone.

Digital technology changes and their impact:

Residential Landline Telephones

The number of landline telephones in our homes is quickly diminishing. What was commonplace just a few short years ago is now a rarity. The advent of the cordless phone freed us from the tether of the wall or desk phone. We could now use the phone anywhere on our property. Cell phones freed us up even more. Now, we can communicate no matter where we are as long as there is a wireless signal. Digital technology finally did away with the having to stay home and wait for that important call from friends, family, Dr., or others.

With the loss of the landline telephone, we also lost the answering machine. Now we have voice messaging.

VHS tapes and VCR’s

Many of us had reels of 8mm home videos at the time VHS camcorders became popular. Almost overnight, our 8mm film became obsolete and the only way to preserve that fragile film was to have a commercial vendor transfer the film to VHS. Today, the number of machines that will playback VHS tapes is decreasing while the use of CD’s and DVD’s is increasing. Soon, the means to transfer our VHS tapes to this media may very well disappear except for commercial vendors. Digital technology has once again moved, possibly leaving us in the dust.

Classified Advertisements

Many of us can remember when looking for employment meant spending hours exploring the classified ads in the local newspaper. After identifying the positions we were interested in, mailing cover letters and resumes became our focus and completing job applications at the employer’s location was expected.

The majority of the employment ads appeared in the Sunday edition with diminishing returns throughout the week. Today, finding these position listings on the internet is much easier than finding them in print media.

Losing employment related classified advertising, along with general advertising, has placed a stress on print media with many businesses having to cease operations.

Digital technology has changed the way we look for work and even how we apply for that once in a lifetime job.

Automobile High Beam Dimmer Switch

For most generations alive today, this is a non-issue. Members of the Baby Boomer generation will probably remember the dimmer switch on the left side of the floorboard on the driver’s side. With oncoming traffic, a quick flick with the tip of the foot and your high beams were instantly shift to low beams and when the traffic was past a second flick of the foot brought out the high beams once again. With this function relegated to a hand control, it is easy to exercise this safety feature, especially since we do not always have both hands on the steering wheel.

For some high end vehicles, digital technology may have created sensors that automatically adjust headlight output, but many of the cars today still have a lever on the steering column.

Music Preservation

Another technological change is associated with the preservation of our old analog music recordings. Often found in the form of 78, 33 1/3, and 48 rpm records, these old favorites and classical music may not be found on the new digital media. We do not have to let these tunes sit away in unused collections like many 8 track cartridges. Today there are means to transfer these songs to our computer. Once on the computer, we can then move them on to other digital media storage devices such as MP3 music players.

Although digital technology is advancing at a rapid pace in audio presentation and preservation, there is still a method for the individual consumer to preserve and playback those stacks of vinyl records just sitting around collecting dust.

Digital technology is changing our everyday lives. We need …
