Why Invest on Home Security Devices

In order to protect your home, family and everything else that is inside, you need to make sure you bring in a home security system. Now, there are different forms of home security, it really just depends what kind of services and features you are looking for. You might want a few updates to the security system if you have children or if you run a home business with valuable items inside. Regardless though, there are different reasons as to why you need to invest on a home security system. Fort Myers ADT Home Security is available for your needs.

Prevent Theft

One of the most important reasons you should invest in a home security system is to prevent theft. Whether you have a home safe that contains some valuables or you just want to protect your computer and television, with the installation of a home security system it is going to help prevent any sort of break in. If potential thieves know there is a security system installed (this information is generally labeled right on the front door and window in order to make sure people are aware), they are less likely to try and stake out the home and will move onto another one.

Protect Family and Offer Peace of Mind

Just like your valuables, the home security devices can protect your family as well. Because thieves know there is a home security system they become less likely to break in. When they are less likely to break in it means they are less likely to cause harm to your family members who might wander in on them inside of the home. Plus, there are security features that are in place, so when your child arrives home from school they must punch in a specific does. You may then receive notifications on your phone that informs you the code has been entered, so you know your child(ren) arrived safely, which is extremely important and should help you make sure your family is safe at all times.

Reduce Insurance Costs

By protecting your home, it means thieves are less likely to break in and steal valuables from your home. Because your home is less likely to be a threat, it means your insurance provider is likely going to charge you less for the insurance. This way, by simply using the services and equipment provided by a home security company, you can actually save money in the long run and cut down the cost on your other expenses.

With so many desirable benefits associated with a home security system, there really is no reason why you should skip out on having a home security system and the security devices installed inside of your home. It all helps keep you safe.

Questions Emerge About Clinton E-mails, Public Records

Clinton Under Fire
Questions are beginning to emerge about former United States Secretary of State, and presumptive 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton now that it has been discovered she used a private e-mail account to conduct government business through the Secretary of State’s office. According to the New York Times, http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/03/us/politics/hillary-clintons-use-of-private-email-at-state-department-raises-flags.html?_r=0 Clinton, the wife of former US President Bill Clinton, did not utilize a government e-mail address through her entire four-year tenure as Secretary of State. Furthermore, her aides, who are also being accused of utilizing a private account, did not preserve her e-mails on federal servers, a possible violation of the Federal Records Act. Not only does this action make complying with Freedom of Information Act requests more difficult, but experts say it is particularly dangerous because most private e-mail servers are not as secure against hackers or attack. The breach was discovered as officials within Clinton’s camp began complying with a federal requests to review more documents and e-mails associated with the 2012 attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton spokesman, Nick Merrill, has defended the actions, stating that Clinton was “complying with the letter and spirit of the rules.”

Home-brewed Server
To make matters worse, it was uncovered this week that Clinton’s private e-mail account could be traced back to a server in her own Chappaqua, New York home. Chris Cillizza, writing a blog for The Washington Post , cited a report by the Associated Press that stated, “The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own e-mail would have given Clinton impressive control over limiting access to her message archives.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2015/03/04/the-hillary-clinton-email-story-just-keeps-getting-worse-for-her/. Furthermore, the man hired to set up this “home-brewed server” in 2010 is listed as one Eric Hoteham. However, according to the Associated Press, “that name does not appear in public records databases, campaign contribution records or Internet background searches.” Thus, for now, the existence of Hoteham remains a mystery.

Foreign Contributions
Clinton, who resigned as Secretary of State in 2013, was already under scrutiny after it was discovered earlier this year that foreign governments had donated millions of dollars to the charitable Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State. Officials have stated that donations such as these are an ethics violation. Clinton, who ran for President in 2008, has not yet announced she will run in 2016. However, she is expected to make that announcement soon.

Ceres, a new Dawn for mankind

Earl Filskov March 5, 2015

March 6 will mark another first in mankind’s exploration of the Milky Way. Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter will get a visit from Dawn. The Dawn spacecraft mission is a $473 million dollar voyage that is the first to orbit two objects in space.

Dawn of a new era

Launched in September of 2007, Dawn reached the massive asteroid, Vesta in July of 2011. After a 14 month stay in orbit around Vesta, Dawn left for Ceres, the dwarf planet that makes up 25 percent of the total mass of the asteroid belt. At approximately 606 miles by 594 miles Ceres is still small in comparison to our other dwarf planet, Pluto which has 41 times the mass of Ceres. As it has been approaching Ceres since December of 2014, Dawn has been taking images of Ceres for navigational purposes. Dawn has made two course corrections as a result. Since January, Dawn has been sending back high resolutions of Ceres. On February 26, one of these images showed two bright spots apparently coming from the surface of Ceres. Initial speculation is that these are reflections from ice volcanoes.

Mission of firsts

Orbiting two objects is not the only first for Dawn. It is the first craft to orbit a dwarf planet, Ceres as well as the first space probe to use an ion propulsion engine. The propulsion system uses solar-generated electricity to accelerate xenon ions to enormous velocities which produces a gentle but continuous push. Ceres was the first object discovered in the asteroid belt by Father Giuseppe Piazzi in 1801. It was at first classified as a planet but, as more objects were discovered in the same area of space it changed to an asteroid. In 2006 due to its planet like qualities it was reclassified as a dwarf planet along with Pluto and Eris. Scientists believe that Ceres may actually hold more water than the Earth.

It will take time

Although Dawn will be “pulled” into Ceres’ orbit on March 6 it will not be until December that it reaches the 232 mile mapping orbit. Once that it occurs, it will take until about April of 2016 for Dawn’s instruments to get properly calibrated for its mission.
