Mobile Pay: Do you know what's on your phone?

Mobile Pay: Do you know what's on your phone?

Starbucks announced last week their new Android phone app.  Not only can you find store locations, but if you enter your Starbucks Card number, your phone becomes your Starbucks Card. The device will display a barcode you can use as your Starbucks Card to make purchases.

It’s fast. It’s easy. It’s a revolution in mobile payment – but is it safe?

Some people say “yes”, as long as you password protect your phone so that if you happen to lose it, your data will be protected. It would be like using your ATM card. Thieves would need your PIN number in order to access your information, which some say makes it more secure than traditional credit cards.

This sounds logical, and already companies like Visa and American Express are preparing their mobile payment systems.

Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

With the beginning of summer upon us, thoughts turn to fun in the sun and water.  For infants and toddlers, that can mean tragedy.  In California, drowning is the number one killer of chidren under the age of four, according to the Infant Swimming Resource of Sacramento.

In addition to providing the safest pool environment possible such as constant adult supervision, fences, covers, and alarms, ISR suggests a program of swimming self-rescue lessons as additional prevention to protect children from accidental drownings.  Children as young as 7 months old learn to hold their breath under water, roll onto their backs and float unassisted.  Older children also learn to swim with their head down, roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe and roll over again to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool to crawl out. 

These skills are taught by certified instructors to assure that a day

West Sacramento cheer squad no longer smeared

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - New yearbook pages were made to replace pictures and an article attacking a West Sacramento high school cheer team.

"I've seen the hurt," River City High School's yearbook committee advisor Shannon Woods said.

Woods is taking the blame for the original piece after allowing a 16-year-old editor to publish an article titled "Who Wears Short Shorts."

The article referred to the cheer squad with unflattering language and pictures with captions accusing them of showing too much "leg."

Woods said she took the teenagers article to a school vice principal for approval. The vice principal reportedly said the article wasn't libelous and approved its submission.
