Here are 5 things you should know.
1. You never have to enter your real email address when connecting to free WiFi (and you shouldn’t).
As you likely don’t have internet access at the time you’re connecting, there would be no way for you to verify that the email is actually yours. For that reason, there are no checks or verifications in place on the email you enter.
Throw in the most ridiculous email address that comes to mind and you’re good to go, spam free.
2. Young, fit people can have heart attacks too. Basic first aid knowledge can save lives.
A video is circulating of a fit, 20-year-old woman in a gym who suddenly collapses with a heart attack. As you see in the video, there were automatic defibrillators at the gym, and they saved her life. The young woman continued on to campaign for awareness of these, as well as training.
Heart attacks and cardiac arrests are not just a middle-age problem; accident or injury can sneak up on anyone. You could save the life of a stranger, or a loved one, but not unless you know what to do, what not to do, and what signs to look for. The automatic defibrillator is an example of an easy-to-use device that increases the odds of survival, along with some basic CPR knowledge.
It is also just one of many useful, easy-to-learn, and life-saving tips that you can get from attending even a basic Red Cross or other first aid training course. And remember, when an incident occurs, always specifically task somebody to call the emergency services.
It’s never too late to learn.
3. There’s a website that provides 3D human body reference that is rotatable, perfect for those who learn to draw human bodies.
It has a lot of different poses.
4. You can use haveibeenpwned.com to check if your account passwords have been leaked at some point.
Write your email and it will tell you if there was a leak on one of the websites you are registered to. It is not a scam and is really helpful. Always make sure to use a strong password and stay away from using common keywords (Your name, birthday and so on).
5. Minors in certain states may be able to get vaccinated without parental consent if they are considered “mature”.
Minors in the following states may be able to get themselves vaccinated without parental consent if they are considered to be “mature”: Alaska, Arkansas, Alabama, Idaho, Illinois, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Louisiana, Montana, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Oregon, Nevada, West Virginia, Kansas, and Tennessee. This is so kids can protect themselves against certain preventable diseases even if their parents are against vaccinating them.
