Are You Safe From A Cyber Attack?
I always enjoy reading the "what happened in history" emails I get about once a month, so I was reminded that September had a profound affect on the way we treat our personal technology. More »

Micro Moves of a Correct Backswing
Rated 4.7 Stars
For many amateur golfers, the flaws start early on in their backswings and then a great downswing becomes a dream or a journey of compensations. Many movements that we'd like to do on the downswing are impossible due to stretch shorten cycles or actions/reactions that we've triggered off in the backswing. Thus, no matter how hard you try...

Planting Seeds
Rated 5.0 Stars
Something happened this month that inspired me to switch topics and talk about something that applies to art in general. The road of an artist, whether they are a photographer, a sculptor, or a painter, is a long one with ups and downs. I have been at many a venue where the financial payoff end of art wasn't happening.

Pause for Menopause
For quite some time now, I've felt pretty darn smug. Smug about the fact that although I'm now closer to 50 than 40, I was taking no medications. More »

Emergency Foods Recipes
After last month scare with the 2 hurricanes (Iselle and Julio) headed for Hawaii I started thinking about how to prepare the foods in my emergency stash. How would one make tasty and nutritional meals out of a bunch of canned goods in the absence of electricity? More »

PGA Tour Clubhead Lag Part 1
Rated 5.0 Stars
Lag is often misunderstood, mis-characterized and measured at the wrong place. Due to this, the simple act of allowing the club to lag behind the hands is very difficult except for the best players. But even my statement that it is a "simple act" is totally mistaken. This is another very complex subject and requires some deep analysis in order to understand then have the ability to perform.

Muffins
Rated 5.0 Stars
Right now, I'm working on whole wheat muffins. A muffin is basically a single-serving quick bread. One of the reasons I like them is because they freeze so well. You can make lots of them, in many different flavors, and then just pull out a few of each flavor as needed! Muffins are good for using up leftover veggies and fruits. And they can be packed with fiber, helping to keep muffin tops in their rightful place, instead of hanging over our jeans! More »

Mobility Is Cool, but There Are Security Risks
While it's cool to surf the Web or answer e-mail while sipping a latte at a downtown cafe, I find more often than not I'm most productive using the wireless capabilities of my laptop in the comfort of my own home. To do this, you'll need to set up a wireless home network. It may sound daunting, but it is not all that difficult, if you have some technical skills. More »

Don't E-mail Photos
What's the best way to get a lot of photos you have taken with your digital camera to others who may want them? Now days with the high mega-pixel cameras, each photo maybe on the average of one to two megabytes. So sending 20-30 photos will most likely not make it through most of e-mail systems. You could burn them a CD but that takes time and then you would need mail it to them or deliver it to them. Who has time for that? So what other choices do you have? More »

Microsoft's New Operating System May Influence PC Purchases
In our last column we began a series on what to look for when purchasing a new PC while keeping in mind that in about a year Microsoft will be releasing a powerful new operating system called "Vista." Vista will require more robust (and more expensive) hardware, so if you're thinking of migrating to it, you need to purchase a machine that will be able to run it.

Twists Pupu
Rated 5.0 Stars
These pupu (appetizers) are quick and easy to make. It is amazing what elegant and delicious recipes are made from packaged crescent rolls. Twist's can be made 2-3 days in advance. If they get soggy, they can be crisped in the oven. This recipe takes about 45 minutes to prepare and yields 30 - 40 twists. More »

Patrick Schladt is a German lawyer defending a client relating to a pharmaceuticals case under German law. When his legal team examined the digital evidence the government had presented against his client, they began to suspect that there may have been some sort of surveillance software on his client's computer that was somehow leaking information to an external entity.
