Why Consumer Reports can’t recommend the iPhone 4


Consumer ReportsIt’s official. Consumer Reports’ engineers have just completed testing the iPhone 4, and have confirmed that there is a problem with its reception. When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone’s lower left side—an easy thing, especially for lefties—the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if you’re in an area with a weak signal. Due to this problem, we can’t recommend the iPhone 4.

We reached this conclusion after testing all three of our iPhone 4s (purchased at three separate retailers in the New York area) in the controlled environment of CU’s radio frequency (RF) isolation chamber. In this room, which is impervious to outside radio signals, our test engineers connected the phones to our base-station emulator, a device that simulates carrier cell towers. We also tested several other AT&T phones the same way, including the iPhone 3G S and the Palm Pre. None of those phones had the signal-loss problems of the iPhone 4. «Read the rest of this article»

Wishful Thinking for School Children for the Coming Year


School LunchI saw an ad that described a huge giveaway of thousands of dollars for the person who wins and another equal amount for the charity the person chose to write about. It started my thinking about what would be an ideal situation for the children who will soon be starting back to school.

The first thing I would wish for them is that each and every child would have a good breakfast every morning (and adequate food for the entire day, of course!). According to the Child Nutrition Fact Sheet, missing breakfast and experiencing hunger can impair a child’s ability to learn. Quite a number of studies have linked hunger with lessened recall and poor math skills. Regardless of any studies, it just makes common sense that a child who is hungry is not as focused on learning. «Read the rest of this article»

Children of God


A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

Sons and Daughters of GodHave you ever thought of yourself as being a son or a daughter of God? Boy, that’s a startling thought! Me, a son of God!  There’s an interesting scripture in Romans 8:14, “For as many as are led by the spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

Think about that. There seems to be a growing enthusiasm for people to search their ancestral roots lately. Now here’s something to really think about, when we’re born again we become the sons and daughters of God. That’s how God looks at you.

There’s another scripture that says we are co-heirs with Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:7). Are we living and acting like the sons and daughters of God? Why don’t we all try harder to be a good child of God!

This is Brother Shep asking you to think about this.

New Final Rule to Ensure Egg Safety, Reduce Salmonella Illnesses Goes Into Effect


U.S. Food and Drug Administration Silver Spring, MD — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says that as many as 79,000 illnesses and 30 deaths due to consumption of eggs contaminated with the bacterium Salmonella Enteritidis may be avoided each year with new food safety requirements for large-scale egg producers.

The new food safety requirements will become effective on July 9th, 2010, through a rule for egg producers having 50,000 or more laying hens — about 80 percent of production. Among other things, it requires them to adopt preventive measures and to use refrigeration during egg storage and transportation.

Large-scale egg producers that produce shell eggs for human consumption and that do not sell all of their eggs directly to consumers must comply with the refrigeration requirements under the rule; this includes producers whose eggs receive treatments such as pasteurization. Similarly, those who transport or hold shell eggs must also comply with the refrigeration requirements by the same effective date. «Read the rest of this article»
