Why You May Want to Register Your Name on Multiple Email Providers Even if You Do Not Plan on Using that Service!

With the proliferation of spam, cyber attacks and just some bad actors out there, it may be a good idea to register your name as well as your family members name for your own safety…

We have registered all of our family names on the big five at the time of registration, gmail, hotmail, outlook, yahoo and icloud…. these are no longer the biggest…see below

Even if you do not plan on using the provider, it may make sense to register so some “bad Actor” does not pose as you…

Ok, we get it, with a weird last name like ours, it was not that hard, those with more normal names may have a tougher time, but you may still want to try…. bad guys are not going away!

The Largest Email Providers

The following is a snap shot of the last frame of this neat graphic from Statics and Data

Not sure if any of you noticed the last few videos are not coming through email notification well…but we did… and it is currently being fixed….

Hence the Snapshot, we know that will work…

Here is the actual embedded video… if you see a video, it has been fixed, if just a link, not fixed yet…

There you have it… another in our Why series AND a light, fun and hopefully helpful post labor day article!

Have a Great “Register Your Name on that Email” Day!

Break In: Spring Spotted … Spring Break Next Week … Newsletter Completion … Time Change Weekend YAY! … Friday …

With an unused make up snow day today (not sure how that happened but oh well) – kiddos out today – and next week being Spring Break an attempt personally to take some R & R time next week, I am out today and next week….

Always tethered, this time lightly as Jen and Donald are very capable of covering !

BREAK IN – Spring has sprung… each year the family watches for the early budding Tree in the back yard… Great News, the deep freeze of just a few weeks ago did not do our early budding tree in AND in the last 24 hours the blooms have started…

Who needs the Groundhog… kidding-

Well done Pierce for spotting !

Newsletter Update

While gone, the finishing touches will be put on the Newsletter, AND next week we will do a shortened version of one of the main articles – Why You Should Check Your Social Security Earnings Record Now!

Time Change Weekend – YAY

In addition to a little R and R, next week, we get my favorite time change! YAY

Sure we lose an hour of sleep…

Sure it seems to take a bit longer to adjust as the years go by…

But the Suns stays up LATE in the evenings…

Friday and Next Weeks Posts

If I can stay away from the keyboard – no promises…haha

In addition to the Newsletter Preview Post mentioned above, a re-run of another reminder post will occur as well.. hat tip DK from the field as a neat reminder!

Ahhhh…. but today is a Friday and I am away, but tethered lightly… enjoy your weekend and your Friday!

Top Daily Google Searches for the Last 10 Years In Each State … Showing our VERY Short Attention Spans –

Long time followers know we cannot resist these neat Animated Charts… just fascinating to us ….

The following is daily Google searches for the last 10 years – its a bit long, so pick your time period if you want to watch…. it’s surprisingly interesting.

Couple of observations from our perch:

  • Whew… we have SHORT attention spans!
  • We all school like fish at once – notice how the states show similar searches almost every time
  • Entertainment (music and movies) dominates any other subject
  • The 15 year old watched and knew tons more items than myself
  • Adele and Billie Eilish seem to carry the popularity crown the longest from a muscian standpoint
  • Fortnite was by far the most dominate gaming search
  • Never heard of Myxer – and it is no longer around (maybe that is why we never heard of)
  • Who knew Pepe the Frog was so popular

This again from our friends at Visual Capitalist who usually do not do animated charts, but we sure like this one…

This one is 11 minutes long…well worth the time, but we know most will not watch for more than 2 – Pick a time frame when you think you may know what everyone was searching – You will likely be surprisingly wrong – again, VERY short attention spans for everyting!

Hope you enjoyed as much as we did!

Have a Great “Fellow Short Attention Span” Day!

Electric Cars By Country …Battery and Plug In … Fun Animated Stats Chart

Being big fans of these new neat animated graphics… this was suggested viewing to us and we thought worth sharing…. from our friends at Animated Stats

Tesla/Musk production here in the USA takes the lead early on….

You may be surprised who the latest winner is …. not being spoiler, but it is NOT the USA…

Note “Battery and Plug In” Includes hybrids…

May want to turn the volume DOWN… a bit loud

Neat Animated Chart of Immigration, Which Will Eventually Resume

With much talk of immigration to and from different countries, this chart seemed very interesting.

Of course, this will only continue after travel opens once again, but still interesting from our perch!

USA seems to lead as desired destination, with Russia a very strong second until just recently!

Top Country Exporters 1960 to 2018 – Timely Tariff Related Animated Chart

This one is a little long… just over 5 minutes, but worth it considering the Sabre Rattling that is going on over Tariff talks…

The shorter ones do not give a good enough history of just when China came on the scene… Bet you cannot guess what year they did ? We missed by a long shot…

Also worth watching, the massive growth in Total World Exports – Graph/gauge in lower right portion of chart…

Maybe turn the volume down a bit before you hit play? Very patriotic, but a bit loud…hey who are we to question the author!

Enjoy…

So Intrigued by these!

Have a Great “Top Exporters for Last 50 Years” Day!
