Brian Udermann of Onalaska, a UW-L professor of exercise and sports science and director of online education, explores this question along with 101 other interesting topics in an upcoming book Was Mom Wrong? The Truth About Another 101 Common Myths, Urban Legends and Old Wives Tales! to be released later this year. Udermann also uncovered the truth behind more than 100 myths in his first book 25 Ways to Cure the Hiccups: Uncovering the Truth Behind 101 Common Myths and Misconceptions, released in February 2011. In his new book, Udermann shares his own reaction picking up his childs backpack. I didnt realize kids used backpacks as mini storage sheds, he quipped. Hauling around that 20 to 30 pounds of textbooks, notebooks, day planners, phones, iPods, wrestling shoes, snacks and fishing lures could cause problems, Udermann explained.

AT&T Launches Cloud Storage Offer for Federal Government Agencies with Built-In

It has the same features, policies, capabilities, and EMC Atmos technology as AT&T’s commercial cloud storage offer but adds further security measures including: — Storage towers that are physically separated from other users’ towers in the data center; — Separate logical cloud for government data; government customer data will not co-exist with commercial data; — A separate cloud portal partition for government agencies; — All government agency customers and their authorized users are assigned RSA hard token for 2-Factor Authentication. A recent survey of federal IT leaders, conducted by MeriTalk, sheds light on both the appetite for cloud conversion in the federal sector and the challenges agencies face regarding the logistics of such a move. While the survey found the Federal Government could save $18.9 billion annually by migrating services and applications to the cloud, only 41 percent of respondents said their agency is considering cloud as part of their overall IT strategy. Additionally, 51 percent said they use cloud “only for a limited number of specific applications” and more than half of feds gave their agency a “C” or below on progress toward cloud. To download the full survey study, please visit www.meritalk.com/cloudconfusion “Federal agencies want the mobility, collaboration, information sharing and efficiency that cloud offers but they can’t afford to adopt cloud solutions that sacrifice performance, reliability and above all, security,” said Kay Kapoor, President, AT&T Government Solutions. “Our new STaaS for Government offer delivers the key attributes Federal buyers require and allows them to move to the cloud with ease and confidence.” *AT&T products and services are provided or offered by subsidiaries and affiliates of AT&T Inc. under the AT&T brand and not by AT&T Inc.

Sporting an aluminum-brushed body with slim edges and black island keys, the Chromebook 2 is looking more and more like Toshiba’s answer to the Apple MacBook Air. The notebook touts SkullCandy speakers, making it the first Chromebook with branded audio, according to Toshiba. Sound comes from beneath the keys rather than from the bottom or sides of the notebook. During our demo, audio sounded quite clear for a Chromebook. View gallery . The Chromebook 2 is powered by a 2.16-GHz dual-core Intel Celeron N2840 processor with up to 4GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. As with most Chromebooks, you’ll get 100GB of free Google Drive storage for 2 years after your purchase.
