"People undervalue the extensive research required to support a protective security program."
Private security is no joking matter for people who might be targeted by criminals or overzealous fans. But it’s not just celebrities who need security protection; high-ranking corporate business people can face threats too, as well as wealthy individuals regardless of their fame.

Don't screw up your security for the sake of convenience when you can have both.
Regularly locking your phone’s screen can be an annoyance. So much so that a third of Android users don’t even lock their phones at all, and those that do choose painfully obvious PINs or patterns. Fortunately, there’s a better way: It’s called Smart Lock for Android.

Take a few minutes to make sure your desk isn't hurting more than it's helping:
By now, everyone knows that sitting all day is damaging your body, so it’s important to move around and stay active. But how you sit between those breaks is just as important. Physiotherapist Joanne Gough has a quick video outlining the ideal sitting posture and how to set up your workspace accordingly.

Cats and dogs, living together! ...but it works!
When you buy an Apple product you buy into the ecosystem more than with any other company, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with only what they offer. If you’re a lover of wearables you’d be remiss to overlook Android Wear, even if you’ve chosen iOS as your primary mobile platform.

I agree I have not had a great experience with Android wear. I have serious Bluetooth connectivity issues. I just want it to always work and it does not.

It doesn't take much effort to save money with these apps.
I’m terrible at saving money, I hate studying personal finance, and I tend to have a “carpe diem” mentality when it comes to buying the things I want. Fortunately, a few automated savings apps gave me a stronger hold on my money by doing most of the hard stuff for me.

Wait, taking advice from someone who admits they cant save money is like asking cooking advice from someone who eats at McDonalds.

You may not have time to learn a martial art, but you can learn the basics of self-preservation.
Every fight has a winner and a loser, and unless you spend some serious time training, there’s a good chance you’ll be the loser at least once. Hopefully, it’ll never happen, but if it does, these techniques will help you roll with the punches and walk away with only a few scrapes and bruises.

I can always remember this fight I had in school. I got busted up pretty bad, but you should have seen the other guy! Not a mark on him. :-)

It proposes some big updates to credit reporting.
Bad credit can haunt you for years. It affects everything from your home purchase to your bills to renting an apartment. Some employers even check your report before hiring you. A newly proposed bill aims to improve the system.

It's great that we are owned by some mysterious algorithm by private corporations.

A guide to making sure your plants survive (and maybe even thrive!)
Did you know a cactus could droop? I didn’t until I killed one. Some plants are hardier than others, but if you’re anything like me, the only plant that survives under your thumb is an artificial one. Habitual plant killers, here’s where we go wrong.

A few minutes can make all the difference!
Sitting in front of a screen all day can wreak havoc on the spine. Our posture changes, and that can cause some serious long-term damage. Dr. Eric Goodman, creator of the Foundation Training program, offers these three no-equipment exercises to help.

It's always easier to be confident when you're Star-Lord.
In May of 2014, I wore my first costume to a convention. It was a simple Doctor Krieger from Archer. Stepping into the shoes of a character I liked just seemed like a fun way to spend the weekend. Instead, it turned into an exploration of what it means to be confident.

I've noticed this with cosplay as well. Things that I would find to be uncomfortably revealing in regular life (even, like, a tight pair of short shorts) I can wear on a convention floor happily.

They're different, but both very popular. Let's put them to the test:
When you really need to keep your files safe and secure, you need encryption. We’ve covered the basics before, and even rounded up your favorite encryption tools, but today we’re putting two of the most popular options for Windows head to head to see which one is the best at keeping your sensitive data safe.
