Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Explodes And Sets Jeep On Fire

Posted By: Oladiti Atm - November 19, 2017

Just days after Samsung issued a worldwide recall for its hottest new smartphone, Galaxy Note 7, another incident of the device exploding that barbecued a Jeep Grand Cherokee of a family in St. Petersburg has been reported.
“Not the barbecue I wanted on my day off,” Dornacher wrote on Facebook, sharing photos of his vehicle on fire and the charred remnants of his smartphone.
No one was injured in the incident. “We are safe no one was hurt all that matters to me,” Dornacher wrote on Facebook.
According to a report from FOX 13 News, St. Petersburg, Florida resident Nathan Dornacher and his family had just returned home from a yard sale on Labor Day. While unloading a desk they had bought for their daughter, Nathan left his new Note 7 to charge in his SUV.
They sent their 8-year-old daughter, with the family’s service dog to get back in the vehicle because they were leaving to run more errands. However, the dog knew something was wrong. Dornacher looked out of the window and realized his Jeep was engulfed in flames.
While fire fighters were able to contain the fire, but it was too late for Dornacher’s Jeep, which was totaled, according to FOX 13 News.
Samsung spokesperson told FOX 13 News that it was “aware of the incident,” and that it was “working with Mr. Dornacher to investigate his case and ensure we do everything we can for him.”
The spokesperson added, “Consumer safety is Samsung’s highest priority. With regard to the Galaxy Note7, we are asking owners to take advantage of the Product Exchange Program announced on Friday of last week. The program offers Note 7 owners the opportunity to exchange the phone for a new one.”
However, Dornacher on Facebook said that while he wasn’t positive that the Note 7 was the cause of the fire, “all signs are pointing that way.” He also posted that “Samsung has blown me off after over a hour on the phone this morning. Never called back as promised. Guess it is time to get a lawyer. You had your chance.”
In the meantime, in Australia, a Note 7 explosion caused $1,380 worth of damage to a hotel room.
Samsung recently announced a global recall for its flagship Galaxy Note 7 units after it discovered a battery fault in the smartphone, which caused it to explode. More than 35 cases of exploding have been reported since the launch of the smartphone on August 19.

These days, building a wireless home security camera system isn’t really such a huge deal, especially if you have the right equipment. Wireless IP webcams are ideal of course, because they can be placed anywhere in the house at all, and they don’t need to be connected to a computer. They’re ideal, but they’re also expensive.
We’ve covered a whole boatload of solutions for building a home surveillance system using wired webcams, like James’s article on webcam home surveillance, Matt’s review of iSpy, and my step-by-step instructions in building a wireless home surveillance system using Active Webcam. Again, that solution is based on wireless webcam devices.
What if you don’t want to spend $50 to $200 for each wireless home security camera you want to distribute across your house? Well, there’s another solution that we’ve hinted at a number of times here at MakeUseOf, but have never actually gone through a full-blown exercise in completing the task. That is, creating just such a wireless surveillance network using not wireless webcams, but wireless smartphones. Preferably old, worn out smartphones a few generations back that you left sitting in your bedroom dresser drawer after upgrading to the latest and greatest phone or tablet.
It’s really a waste, isn’t it? Maybe your wife traded in her first generation iPhone for the newest one with Siri. Maybe, like me, you still hung on to that first generation Windows Mobile 5 phone from a decade ago. It was pretty cool at the time, but now it’s serving as a dust collector on the top shelf of your closet. Well, I invite you to gather up all of those so-called “useless” smartphones, and consider following through the steps in this article to transform them into wireless webcam devices that you can use to build your own home surveillance network for absolutely free.

Choosing The Right Wireless Webcam App

The hardest part about building your own wireless home security camera system is probably just finding the right app for that old phone.  The bad news is that for most standard phones (dumbphones), you’re not likely to find a good solution even if it’s a camera phone. However, if it’s an old smartphone, the odds are pretty good there’s an old app out there that turns it into an IP camera. So long as the phone also has wi-fi capability, you can transform it into a wireless IP webcam.
One great resource to find an app that will work for your old phone is Saikat’s article on creative ideas to reuse a mobile phone.  At the bottom, he mentions Mobiola, which will actually allow you to transform a whole assortment of older smartphones to IP webcams, including older iPhones, Blackberries, Windows Mobile 5 and even your old Symbian smartphones. One of the apps I covered that works on older Android smartphones is the Android Webcam Server.
For the sake of this article, I decided to use a popular app that works on most older Android devices, called simply, IP Webcam. If you’re turning your old Android smartphone into an IP Webcam, just launch this app, scroll to the bottom, and click on “Start Server”.
wireless home security camera systems
The default settings are already pretty much set up the way you’d need them to be if you want to keep the phone working as an IP webcam 24 hours a day, but you may want to make sure that the option to “prevent going to sleep” is enabled so that the phone continues streaming indefinitely.
Whatever smartphone you’re using, and whatever app you’re using on it to enable the IP webcam feature, upon launching, it will typically give you an IP address for your new wireless webcam right on the screen once it’s streaming. If not on the display itself, you can typically find the broadcast IP address in the settings.
Once you’ve enabled each of your phones and placed them throughout the house to monitor different rooms (or out in your garage), you’re ready to set up your PC-based monitoring station. Don’t forget that for your phones to work like regular wireless security webcams, they will need to be placed somewhere where there’s a power outlet, and the phone should be permanently attached to the charger and plugged in for full, uninterrupted power. In most cases, these apps can be set up to autolaunch and will typically use the same IP address as the last time, but if something else on the network takes the IP first, the address could change. So if any of your “wireless webcams” no longer seem to work after a power outage, just make sure to go back in and set the IP address to what you have set up in the monitoring station (see below).
To set up the monitoring station, I actually like an app called Webcam Watcherbecause even though it hasn’t been updated in years, the creator now offers the pro-version for absolutely free, giving away the registration code.  The software is really easy to use, fast to set up, and works with far fewer hiccups than most other webcam monitoring programs.
When you first launch Webcam Watcher, you’ll see 6 blank cam icons on the right. Just right-click any of those blank cams and select “Edit current webcam”.

Fill in the IP details from the IP webcam app you’re using on your smartphone. In the case of IP Webcam for Android, it’s a local network IP using port 8080, and ending in “/videofeed”. Selecting streaming is also important and is what works for most smartphone IP webcam apps.
Once my first wireless webcam cam up, I realized I’d already captured an intruder in our bedroom. My youngest daughter had decided to watch TV in our room, and the old Android smartphone I had propped up on my bedside dresser and now serving as a new wireless IP cam, captured her in there.

Another thing I like about Webcam Watcher is that you can enable motion sensing, so that it’ll save snapshots of the scene whenever motion is detected in the room.

This is similar to what I described in my Ghost Hunting article years ago, and it’s exactly why I chose to use Webcam Watcher in that case as well – the setup is nowhere near as sensitive or complicated as all of the other surveillance software tools out there.
The goal here is to recycle all of your old smartphones and tablets as IP webcams around your house, for constant safety and surveillance 24/7, so you can place your next camera in whatever room you want to monitor (in my case, it’s an old tablet overlooking the dining room), and then click on “Edit” and “Create New Webcam”.
ip security camera
Enter the new IP for the next camera – in this case it’s another Android device so I’m using the same structured link from IP Webcam.

There it is, the second wireless IP webcam is now active, and I have both my bedroom and my dining room under constant surveillance using mobile devices that would otherwise have been gathering dust or packed away in the back of my sock drawer, waiting for the day of the next yard sale when it would get tossed in the junk heap of old, unwanted electronics.
ip security camera
As you can see, you’re well on your way to having a full-home surveillance system, and you didn’t spend a dime. Tape that old Windows Mobile smartphone above the closet door in the upstairs hallway. Strap the first generation iPhone above the entrance door to capture all uninvited guests that knock on your door. What better way is there to make use of these old devices?
The other nice thing about WebCam watcher is that when you enable motion sensing for each, it will save all images captured from the motion sensing into individual folders using the camera name, inside of the Webcam Watcher main folder.
The cat triggered the dining room camera only 5 minutes after I had launched that surveillance camera. That was a good inadvertent test that proved the system works!
This is the start of a brilliant home surveillance network that you can easily maintain by cycling through each “webcam” every time you or any of your family members trade off their “old” smartphone for the latest and greatest one out there. Take that 2-year old smartphone, and replace one of the older “IP webcams” in your home surveillance network. Or, better  yet, add and extend the network using the new smartphone.
And finally, a word of thanks to my very first smartphone that inspired the idea for this article – the awesome Windows Mobile Phone from Cingular, the 8125. It crashed often, was painful to surf the web with it, but that old dog is now serving duty as an IP webcam sitting out in the garage, keeping watch over our two vehicles.
wireless home security camera systems
There’s no end to the creative uses you might put these old devices to. The whole concept of a wireless webcam just makes the whole wireless home security camera system far more flexible and scaleable. You can place your smartphone webcams anywhere at all, and so long as they’re within range of your wi-fi network, you’re good to go. Better yet, you’re avoiding contributing to the ever-increasing pile of harmful consumer waste, and that’s something to be extremely proud of.

“Tools to Optimize Your Health and Well Being”

Posted By: Oladiti Atm - October 04, 2017

Everyone has different reasons for wanting to lose weight and deciding on your reasons will help you to focus on the finish line and the results you hope to achieve. The Journal of the American Dietetic Association recommends setting short, medium, and long term goals in order to achieve maximum results.

Do you want to lose weight and feel better about yourself? The first step towards weight loss and a healthy lifestyle is to develop a plan of action. Start by evaluating your goals. Do you want to fit into your old jeans or keep up with your younger friends in a pickup basketball game? Maybe you just want to feel better about yourself.

After setting goals, you should begin to consider how to make your goals come to life. For most people, a change in lifestyle, through diet and/or exercise, is needed to reach long term weight loss goals. A Chi Machine can make a great addition to your new, healthy lifestyle. Chi Machines, like the Chi Vitalizer CY-106, provides passive exercise through an elliptical motion that can help to increase circulation and lymphatic system drainage. This can help to eliminate toxins from the body and increase metabolism, helping to make your dietary and active exercise programs that much more effective.

Using a Chi Machine after a long, hard day can help you to relax and keep you from overeating as a response to the stresses in your life. Making a Chi Machine a regular part of your weight loss plan can create structure that allows you to stick to the other parts of your diet as well. Consider using your Chi Machine for 5-15 minutes a day, either before or after your other exercises or before eating a healthy snack. A lack of exercise and increasing weight can become part of a never-ending spiral.

Using a Chi Machine can help you to increase your anabolic metabolism and decrease catabolic metabolism. Catabolic metabolism is a negative force that can inhibit weight loss and contribute to the negative spiral of weight gain and poor health. Read more about Anabolic and Catabolic Metabolisms at AllAboutMassagers.com. Creating a routine and sticking to it is the most important aspect of weight loss success and a Chi Machine can help you achieve your goals and begin a new, healthy lifestyle.

Abortion: A Public Health Crisis

Posted By: Oladiti Atm - October 04, 2017

Abortion is a very personal decision. Women and couples who are considering this procedure should also consider counseling. Research revealed that women are just as likely to get an abortion whether it is outlawed or legal, which increases the incidence of unsafe abortion.

Not a few women who have been confronted with the reality of unwanted pregnancy have chosen to resolve their problem through abortion. Abortion is a procedure that makes use of medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus and placenta from the uterus to end a pregnancy. The procedure is usually done by a licensed physician or someone acting under the supervision of a licensed physician.

Research shows that women are just as likely to get an abortion whether it is outlawed or legal. Statistics show that one out of five pregnancies ends in abortion. In a study examining abortion trends from 1995 to 2003, experts also found that abortion rates are virtually equal in rich and poor countries, and that half of all abortions worldwide are done in an unsafe manner.

In spite of the legal status of abortion, it has never dissuaded women who seek to end unwanted pregnancy. Abortion accounts for 13 percent of maternal mortality worldwide. While 70,000 women die every year from unsafe abortions, an additional five million women suffer permanent or temporary injury as a result of this procedure.

Although worldwide, abortion rates have dipped from about 46 million in 1995 to just under 42 million in 2003, the rate of unsafe abortion didn’t change at all. In developing countries, the incidence of unsafe abortion continue to rise with nearly half the procedures still performed illegally in potentially dangerous conditions, making it a public health crisis and an assault to human rights.

The increase in contraceptive medication is seen by some sectors as a way to minimize, if not totally eliminate, unsafe abortion. However, while more countries are allowing women to have abortions in a legal way, many women are still receiving medical attention only after a procedure has gone wrong. Women shouldn’t have to hurt themselves before they get the necessary medical attention. Unsafe abortion may be defined as a procedure performed by people lacking the required skills or done in an environment that does not conform to the proper medical standards.

The developing world comprised the biggest share of the abortion pie with a figure of about 35 million abortion cases. And nearly 97 percent of all unsafe abortions were in poor countries. In eastern Europe, there are more abortions than live births, or 105 abortions for every 100 live births. In Western Europe, there are 23 abortions for every 100 live births. In North America, there are 33 abortions for every 100 live births, while in Africa, where abortion is illegal in most African states, there are 17 abortions for every 100 live births.

Providing safe abortions depends on a working health-care system. Experts believe that improving access to safe abortion requires improvement on women’s health. In the last two decades, there has been little improvement to help women survive pregnancy and childbirth, especially in third world countries due to poverty. While improvement in child health can be done with government support, such as immunization against various diseases, the same cannot be said with improving women’s health as funds are restricted from any health services associated with abortion.

Abortion is about making a decision about ending the life of a baby. The debate is still on whether the fetus can be medically considered a human being — a factor that defines the morality or lack of morality of the choice to undergo an abortion. Indeed, given the very sensitive nature of this procedure , abortion should be considered a very personal decision that requires counseling.

7 Tips for Fitness Women

Posted By: Oladiti Atm - October 04, 2017

Would you like to be a fitness woman? Or are you a fitness woman but would like to be effective? Here are 7 great tips on how to become an effective fitness woman:

1. Get a program that will best suit you. Every fitness woman is different. You may have surgical history where a program may not be suited for you. Always consult a qualified trainer to make sure that the fitness program will not hurt you. If the fitness program is not for you, it will only be a cause of frustration and injuries.

2. Set realistic targets. Wouldn’t you be frustrated if you set your mind into reshaping your body in month? Make sure that the body you prefer in a period of time is achievable and realistic. The program should also be practical and will not give you false hopes. It is important to be aware of the blocks you encounter in your daily living. This will help you know what program is satisfactory. And once a program has been reached, then you can set goals and timelines that are realistic.

3. Exercises should work on the parts of your body where muscles are. The reason mainly is, when you develop muscles, you burn more calories and then you lessen the fats in your body. Multi-joint exercises and weight lifting are recommended. Learn what exercises work on certain parts of your body. Multi-joint exercises are also said to be effective but time saving.

4. Be systematic on working on your muscles. Your muscles should be working harder over time. Repeating the same sets of exercises and same weight without getting your muscles to work harder will not give satisfactory results. You can record your daily results and make the progression based on your previous data. A daily log will also motivate you since you are able to track how far you have gone. It builds confidence since there is a written proof something that was successfully accomplished.

5. Perform a set of exercises in 10 repetitions. Every number that was accomplished is called a repetition. Try to make every repetition with less momentum as much as possible. The lesser the momentum, the harder your muscles work. And the harder they work, the bigger they become. To check if there is much momentum when lifting, see if the arm is floating. If the arm does float, then there is much momentum.

6. Be flexible and perform a variety of exercises. Every exercise program should have a variety. You can change your exercises, goals and sets every month to keep you motivated and on the go. Doing this will help you prevent being bored and losing energy physically and mentally.

7. Be Motivated! The best way to keep the energy levels of trainees is to allow a healthy competition and allow them to have a sense of control. Having control is having the sense ownership where everybody gets a part in implementing a program. To do this you also need to be consistent in demonstrating your skills.

Not all programs work for all types of people. There is no workout that is best for everyone. But you learn from experienced people. Learn to acknowledge blocks and demonstrate self-discipline, keep yourself motivated and work harder everyday and add variety. Doing these things, you will discover that a lot of programs will work for you.
