Several months ago I finally broke down and purchased a smart phone. I was out of town and my GPS stopped working, and I decided to take the plunge. Instead of buying another Garmin, I would buy a smart phone that included a navigation app.
Even though I am usually an early adopter and pride myself on keeping up with all the new devices on the market, I had never liked the idea that while you can do so many things on a smart phone, typically the phones are so small that you cant really see what you are doing. When the sales person showed me the Samsung Galaxy Note II, I knew that this large mobile phone was perfect for me.
I have been using my Samsung now for approximately 3 months and I absolutely love it. I dont know how I ever got along without it. No, its not a trendy iPhone, but the screen is large enough (5.5) that I can actually read the email in my Inbox. I can follow the directions on my navigation app, read and edit important documents, and I even have enough screen space that I can surf the web and actually SEE what is there.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II is an Android device and so there are multitudes of apps available for use with it. As I mentioned earlier, I love the Navigation app and I use it all the time. The Samsung Speak your destination feature is fantastic, and it allows me to press a button, tell my smartphone where I want to go, and immediately see the route on my screen.
Since I dont have time to explore the many applications that are available for my new phone, I thought it would be fun to put this topic out there so that you, the followers of our blog, could chime in and tell us about your favorite Android apps. Got one that you really like? Let us know. Add your comments below.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A task force has been appointed to study the alcohol policy at the University of Kentucky.
The Lexington Herald-Leader ( reports President Eli Capilouto made the appointments on Tuesday of 15 university officials and community members.
The panel, called the Work Group on Student Health and Safety, will examine the current ban on alcohol and factors leading to alcohol abuse and ways to prevent it.
Capilouto said last year he was interested in possibly changing the university’s alcohol policy. The comment came after community groups complained that the campus ban led more students to drink in surrounding neighborhoods.
“We realize we’re an institution that is intimately tied to Lexington,” said Robert Mock, UK’s vice president for student affairs. “I think we need to look at some data and research and see what’s done at other institutions to come up with a model that is the best fit for the university and the city of Lexington.”
Mock said recent incidents have led to the review. He noted two high-profile events including alcohol-related problems that led to a temporary ban on some tailgating at UK football games and public celebrations of the 2012 NCAA title by the UK men’s basketball team that led to arrests and property damage.
“It’s no secret that those were not positive things that we would not like to see reoccur,” he said. “We’re going to investigate and see what comes out of the discussion.”
Mock and UK vice president for finance and administration Eric Monday will co-chair the panel, which will also include nine other university employees, two city officials, two officials with Bluegrass Community and Technical College, a neighborhood representative and a student.
“Colleges have a duty and responsibility to translate new knowledge into the creation and implementation of effective best practice policies to facilitate responsible alcohol use and reduce the harmful effects of alcohol misuse,” Capilouto said in a statement. “Universities cannot alone resolve the alcohol problems among students. Comprehensive and coordinated interventions at the individual, campus and community level are the most effective strategies.”

If you have a candida overgrowth problem, it’s not that uncommon. Make sure you identify what you have by going http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/guide/candidiasis-yeast-infection. One solution you can try before going with pharmaceuticals is trying a candida cleanse. Some people call the candida cleanse a Candida Cleanse Diet, not just a candida cleanse, but it’s moreso a diet. You need to change your lifestyle habits when you have a candida problem, so there isn’t really a 15 day, 30, 60 day guaranteed cleanse. It’s more so how bad your symptoms are, how fast your body will fight it, how strict you go on the cleanse, what extra antifungals, and probiotics you are using, how well you are resting, taking care of your health, etc.
When you decide to go on a candida cleanse an improtant thing to remember is which foods you should avoid. There are so many foods, that we think are healthy that easily promote candida. They may be healthy for someone who does not have candida, but for anybody infected, it just causes many problems.
The first part of any candida cleanse will be the hardest. You will eat mainly raw salads and steamed vegetables while avoiding starchy vegetables such as corn, potatoes, yams. Some people go on a liquid only diet for the first week, but it’s not required. It’s not just liquid as in water, but vegetables cooked in broth and soups. You can drink the broth with your food instead of just sticking to regular water. Look at http://myyeastinfectiontreatment.org/candida-treatment-and-diet/ for more diet tips.
After the first week, I would consider cleansing which I do not think is necessary, but it does help some people. There are several cleanses you can choose from, some commercial, and some can be home made. Liver flushing, psyllium and bentonite shakes, colonics. One of the great “side effects” of a candida cleanse is the weight loss http://www.livestrong.com/article/292680-candida-cleanse-weight-loss/.
There is no one method cure for candida, and you have to just stick with it. It’s not just a cleanse that you need, but combined with good probiotics, and using antifungals, you can really accomplish a lot.
A new feature in Excel 2013 called Flash Fill allows the user to separate or combine data within entire columns based on the pattern that Excel picks up from the other columns. You can also use Flash Fill to change the case of text. As long as Excel can pick up a pattern, it will work to complete the column for you.
Note the first and last name columns below:
Suppose you would like to join these columns so that the full name will appear in a separate column. To make the new column with the full name, insert the cursor in the third column and type the first and last name for Bud Roberts. Press ENTER and begin typing the second name. You will see a transparent menu with a preview of suggested names:
Press ENTER to finish the column. You can also use the Flash Fill command on the DATA tab of the Ribbon. In this example, the First Name and Last Name columns do not have to be adjacent to each other, but the column using the Flash Fill must be next to one of these columns for Excel to recognize the correct pattern. This same technique works when separating text within columns:
The data must be entered consistently; for example, if some first names had a middle initial and some did not, you might get some unexpected results. If you did not want to use the Flash Fill, press the ESC key and keep typing to ignore the transparent drop-down list.
NOTE: Even though the Convert Text to Columns Wizard can still be used to separate text into columns, and the CONCATENATE function can be used to join text, the Flash Fill method is much quicker and avoids placing any formulas within the cells.
