Being Smart About Apps

Being Smart About Apps

Smartphones and mobile apps are very much on the upswing, which is changing how we use, share and store information. As of May of this year it was reported that smartphone owners use more than 30 apps in a month, roughly one-third to one-half of the apps they have installed on their phones. And using those apps has become a daily habit. People now open or launch an average of nine apps each day.

A Legacy Plan for Your Pets

A Legacy Plan for Your Pets

Since our pets have shorter life spans, we don’t typically think about outliving them. But it does happen. It is estimated that between five and seven million companion animals end up in animal shelters due to the death of their owners. For some pets, they are lucky to be surrendered to a no-kill shelter and will live out the rest of their lives with good care. Unfortunately, another nearly three to four million of them end up being euthanized (60 percent of dogs; 70 percent of cats) when new homes can’t be found.
