Social Bookmark In My Pocket

16 Aug

How do you save your favorite articles and sites? I’ve used Delicious for years  but recently the service is unreliable and seems to be constantly down. I started using Pocket after trying many social bookmarking tools. It’s an app, website and browser extension that helps people save interesting articles, videos and more from the web for later enjoyment. The site says, “Once saved to Pocket, the list of content is visible on any device — phone, tablet or computer. It can be viewed while waiting in line, on the couch, during commutes or travel — even offline.”

Pocket is integrated into more than 1500 apps including Flipboard, Twitter and Zite. It is also available on iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire, Kobo, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Windows.

Did you know that ten people a day drown in the US? Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children under 5. Drowning is preventable. Have you considered signing your child up for swimming lessons?

This month’s featured nonprofit is the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative. It is a national child-focused water safety campaign which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. Olympic athletes visit local establishments to raise awareness of water safety and the importance of swimming lessons.

Get A Handle On Your Life With This App

19 Jul

I recently needed to try a new app to keep my life in balance. I have tried many “to-do” apps and a friend recommended I try a new one called Handle. The app site says, “it combines your to-dos, email, and calendar so you know exactly what you need to accomplish today, tomorrow, and beyond.” I gave the app a try for a week and I liked it.
