Car Seat Checkup

25 Sep

When was the last time you had your kid’s car seat checked? Did you know that a proper car seat is key to keeping kids safe during each car trip? Motor vehicle related injuries are the number one cuase of death in the US among five to nineteen year olds. Child safety seats lower the risk for injury by 82%. 73% of child safety seats are use incorrectly. All kids should be in the back seat until age 13. Make sure to follow the weight and height limits of the car seat. I recently found out that car seats expire after 6-7 years. Have you checked your seat if it’s expired? If it is, you can drop it off at your local police station for recycling.

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.
