Fake Cell Phone Bills Flood In-Boxes

 

Greater Nashville Better Business BureauNashville, TN – Email is the new wave for keeping up with invoices and other means of business communication, but lately scam operators are using this method to flood in-boxes with fake cell phone bills in an attempt to commit identity theft.

The emails appear to be coming from Verizon Wireless or AT&T Wireless and indicate the recipient’s wireless bill is ready for viewing or thanks the recipient for scheduling a payment.  The email then provides links to view the alleged bill, pay online, or access the account; however, the links lead to a third party website that requests personal information which then provides the scam operator with the data needed to steal your identity.  View samples of the fake cell phone emails below. «Read the rest of this article»

Is Parasailing Safe?

 

I’ve never done it, but it was on my list.  Parasailing; it just looks like fun, doesn’t it?  After spending most of my life evaluating what is safe or going after people who weren’t, hanging from a parachute high above the water seemed like a great way to have fun. The view has to be awesome; they make you wear a life jacket so that is covered; and you’re in a parachute for goodness sake.  If anything happens, you just float down to the water and wait for them to pick you up, right?  Well, maybe…but that depends…on a lot.

Since 2006, In the U.S. alone, there have been 8 deaths and 38 injuries associated with para-sailing. Personally, I blame the name; “Parasailing” – it even sounds soft…sailing and parachuting, gliding through the air, adrift.  But that is not what is happening.

Basic truths lead to better decisions

 

Clarksville, TN – While helping a friend with his cows, we were getting hay out of the loft of one of those iconic barns that have been around for well more than a century.  He pointed to an out-of-place sign on the loft door for a title company.

A local bank had created the title company when it began to acquire foreclosed farms in the 1930s.  By 1960, the bank wanted out of the land ownership business and started liquidating the farms by auction.  A local businessman had bought 300 acres of this particular farm for $50,000 not knowing where he would come up with the money. «Read the rest of this article»

Vietnam Veterans of America LogoClarksville, TN – It is a solemn occasion when a nation gathers together to honor its soldiers as we do each year on Memorial Day. It is important not only to honor those who lived to come home, but even more importantly to remember those who did not.

This was a solemn year as there remains of two soldiers who had been missing in action had been returned, that leaves 30 from the State of Tennessee who have yet to return home.

Font vs. Typeface

 

The Baskerville Font

Clarksville, TN – First of all, I must admit that I am guilty of this. Yes, I realize that I knew the difference between these in college, but I hear “font” and “typeface” used interchangeably every day. Sometimes people do not even understand what a “typeface” is, and I quickly change over to the more well-known “font” term.

But the bigger question I keep asking myself is “Does it really matter?” Does it really matter if people universally use the same term for something, even if it’s incorrect? Terminology changes all the time. I am no longer a “typesetter”, I am a graphic designer. I do not sit for hours, setting lead type onto printable plates. Even the occupation of typographer has actually been morphing into more of a “fontographer”. «Read the rest of this article»
