Today's Opinions

  • Everyday life can kill you, but don’t let it

    Last week was a big deal for me as I turned 28-years-old on Thursday, March 23.

    It’s funny how birthdays are perceived when you get older. When I was growing up, I looked at my birthday as another year of getting closer to becoming a teenager, being old enough to drive or some other milestone many of us had when we were growing up.

    After turning 28 last Thursday, I found myself so busy with everyday life that I kept forgetting about my birthday in the weeks and days leading up to it.

  • Where we came from

    That headline got you didn’t it? Thinking birds/bees right? No. Maybe more philosophical or perhaps scientific? Nope, none of the above. History has always been one of my favorite subjects. One of the most fascinating parts of history, to me, is thinking about all the people who came together and, as a result, here I am.

  • Free software for you

    A few weeks ago, I talked about extending the life of your computer hardware. This week I thought I would give you a few free software applications to make you more productive and happier individuals.

    I wrote about the need to clean out files you no longer need. Many will not do this because it just takes too long. Along comes PC Decrapifier.

    The PC Decrapifier is a program designed to suggest and remove unwanted software. One excellent use is to clean off most of the annoying software, generally referred to as bloatware, that is typically shipped with new PCs.

  • Remember your finances while spring cleaning

    Many people have an annual spring cleaning routine which includes washing windows, cabinets and woodwork.  This year take time to also “clean-up” your financial records. 

    Sort through your financial paperwork, and identify old statements which can be shredded or thrown away. Remember, it is always a good idea to shred any paperwork that contains personal information, especially bank account, credit card or other financial information.

  • Give the gift of help

    More times than not, people assume community is simply a group of individuals in the same area. Community is so much more than just that. It is a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

    It is important for a community of people to help each other because when you help someone, later on in life they will remember it when they see someone who needs help and hopefully return the favor.

  • Senator Steve Meredith’s legislative update - March 29, 2017

    Since this is the period of the Legislative Session when the Governor has his veto days and the Senate does not meet, I wanted to discuss the issue of making health care more accessible and more affordable for all Kentuckians. As the former CEO of a rural hospital, improving health care was a major factor that drove my decision to run for public office.

  • Cyber security statistics, truly scary!

    I am a numbers guy and I love statistics. When clients would not believe my advice, I sent them to read the statistics. I do not make this stuff up.

    So, after writing several articles the past two years regarding the threats your business faces to Cybercrime and Cybertheft, I thought you might enjoy reading a few from a recent report by Barkly.

    2016 saw a huge growth in new malware entering cyber space. In just the third quarter of 2016, we saw 18 million new malware software attacks. And that is just the samples that were collected in the wild.

  • How Triglycerides affect your health

    Triglycerides are a type of fat that can be found in your blood. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, triglycerides are the most common type of fat in your body.

    Your body creates triglycerides when you eat more calories than you need to use at that time. This makes your fat cells store the triglycerides until you need energy between meals, at which point certain hormones release the triglycerides into your bloodstream.
