If you want to be happier, keep your personal information private and find more free time, Quit Facebook

I dropped off of Facebook on Nov. 1, in part because of security concerns, a little because I spent entirely too much time with it but largely because it was making me miserable.

This app is simple to use, helps you avoid long lines at checkout and is a great use of technology

I love technology, but I love it most when it solves problems for me. And so, somewhat sheepishly, I have to admit that I love Sam’s Club’s “Scan & Go” app that I have on my iPhone.

On Friday, FBI agents arrested a man who had mailed bombs to many prominent Democratic leaders, including former President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. On Saturday, 11 more people senselessly died when they were shot while at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. The violence is an outgrowth of the hate and polarization which is taking over our country.
