Making Changes to your Facebook Settings

Are you sure you've checked *all* your Facebook settings? The last time they updated their privacy rules, they reverted a lot of settings back to Default, which means *everyone* (even if not on Facebook) can view your profile and everything in it. To make changes, do the following:

Go to Account, then Account Settings, then under the Settings tab click on Account Security. This one it totally up to you, but if you login to Facebook from one computer all the time and not your smartphone/cell, you may want to turn this ON. It's also interesting to check this to see when you last logged in and from where.

Under the Notifications tab, uncheck any you don't want to get an email or text/SMS about

Under the Facebook Ads tab, Change the pulldown menu from My Friends to No One

Now go to Account at the top right of the browser, then Privacy Settings.

Under Basic Directory Information, click on View Settings

The default is Everyone. Change this to what you prefer, usually Friends Only.

Conn. man stole flag, put up hippo toy
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100924/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_flag_theft

Call it the case of the flying hippo. Connecticut police said a man stole an American flag from Waterbury's Town Plot Park and hoisted a stuffed hippopotamus toy in its place. Twenty-three-year-old Jeffrey Kovic, of Waterbury, was arrested and was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail on misdemeanor larceny, criminal mischief and conspiracy charges.

Kovic was arrested Tuesday. A message left for his public defender Friday wasn't immediately returned.

City police told the Republican-American of Waterbury that they're also seeking arrest warrants for several minors suspected of taking part in last week's prank and for damaging park bleachers.

Redstone Arsenal Conference 9/21

Image
The first flight from Portland, ME to Charlotte, NC was Flight 815. Eeek! (If you're not a LOST fan, you won't understand). It was a very bumpy ride and I kept looking for Hurley and Jack on the flight, haha!

The flight from Charlotte was much better. When we landed in Huntsville, AL, it was HOT. 95 degrees. And humid. Yuck!

Ranae, who booked me for the conference, picked me up, took me to the visitors gate at Redstone to get my badge, then left to get lunch. She said the average time to wait was an hour or two. Oh joy. So I waited and waited and about a half hour later, my number was called (yes, it was like being in a deli, where you get a number).

The girl pulled up my info, looked up at me, a little oddly, then asked if I was with the same company. I said yes (I'd spoken there in 2006). She shrugged, printed out my badge and gave it to me. I went outside to call Ranae and let her know I was already done. While I waited for her to come get me, I looked at my badge and star…

Cops nab 'Darth Vader' robbery suspect after goof
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100917/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_darth_vader_robbery

Police arrested a resident they said wore a plastic Darth Vader mask before pulling a butcher knife and robbing a convenience store. Police in the Detroit suburb said the man fled Monday after demanding all the cash from the register.

Lt. William Wilson told The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak the suspect goofed by putting on the mask while in range of a store surveillance camera.

Forty-one-year-old Jamie C. Hernandez was arraigned Thursday. District Court Magistrate James Brennan set his bond at $50,000.

Hernandez was in the county Thursday night, and it wasn't known if he has a lawyer.

Wilson said Hernandez got the mask from one of his children.

Pa. students shown X-rated photos in assembly
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100911/ap_on_fe_st/us_school_assembly_porn
Officials in a western Pennsylvania school district are apologizing after they say students at a local high school were accidentally shown pornographic pictures during a school assembly.

More than 400 seniors at Norwin High School, about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh, were watching a presentation Friday on the importance of donating blood. School officials say "a few pornographic pictures" on a personal flash drive of a Central Blood Bank representative appeared on the screen.

The Central Blood Bank apologized and said the unnamed employee was suspended indefinitely. School officials apologized and said the police department and prosecutor were notified. A blood-donation presentation for the junior class was canceled.

Pa. woman zaps self, brother with stun gun
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100903/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_woman_stuns_self

Police said an Erie-area woman somehow managed to zap both herself and her brother with a stun gun during a drunken dispute. Darlene Newara, 45, will have a hearing Oct. 18 on charges including driving under the influence, disorderly conduct for fighting, and public drunkenness in the Aug. 8 incident.

State police said they responded to a disturbance outside an Erie-area store about 6 p.m. to find that Newara had been arguing with her brother and stunned him with the device, then accidentally shocked herself with it.

Police said she was intoxicated and had several unopened bottles of liquor in the vehicle with her three sons, who were not hurt.
