Boost phone says surveillance

 

Chancellor Philip Hammond is expected to end the Bank of England's money-printing splurge in next month's Autumn Statement, it was confirmed. 

One former Tory pensions minister called for new fixed-rate National Savings bonds paying up to 4% annual interest to reward prudence and stop savers being "punished". 

"We need to reward saving," Baroness Altmann said. Hopes of a helping hand for savers were raised earlier this week by Theresa May's in her Tory conference speech.

You probably don't need scientists to tell you that your metabolism slows with age. But they're studying it anyway—and coming up with exciting research to help rev it up again. The average woman gains 1½ pounds a year during her adult life—enough to pack on 40-plus pounds by her 50s, if she doesn't combat the roller coaster of hormones, muscle loss, and stress that conspires to slow her fat-burning engine. But midlife weight gain isn't inevitable: By eating metabolism boosting foods and following the path, you'll sleep better, have more energy, feel firmer, and notice your clothes are looser in as little as 2 weeks. Here's how:

It's no secret that cell phones emit electromagnetic radiation, but is it harmful? The CDC says there's no proof of harm. But the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer calls the radiation "possibly carcinogenic to humans," and recent research - including an ominous 2009 Journal of Clinical Oncology study - have drawn similar conclusions.

In light of growing worries about cell phone safety, Dr. Devra Davis - the author of Disconnect: The Truth about Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Is Doing to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family - says it makes sense to limit exposure to cell phone radiation. Unfortunately, she says, many cell phone users make dumb mistakes that boost their exposure. Keep clicking to see eight big ones...

Some people are so attached to their cell phones that they sleep with them on their nightstand or even under their pillow. Bad idea. Cell phones pump out electromagnetic radiation whenever they're on - which means sleeping with one nearby boosts your exposure all night long. What to do? Put the phone on "airplane mode" (which shuts down the transceiver) or turn it off. If you need to be available for calls, place the phone several feet away from your bed.

If you’re looking to save money on your monthly cellphone bill, opting for prepaid wireless service may be the way to go, especially as carriers offer a wider selections of phones to their prepaid customers. Should you opt for a no-contract plan, AT&T's revamped prepaid offerings push it ahead of MetroPCS for tiered data, though MetroPCS still offers the best unlimited prepaid plan.

AT&T is also the top choice if you need multiple lines by following the lead of its Cricket subsidiary and offering escalating discounts every time you add a line. Boost is a good alternative if your family demands unlimited data (though there are some limitations on streaming).

How We Picked the Best Prepaid Plans: Data allotments vary widely among prepaid carriers. To make the best comparison, we looked at the plans closest to 3GB of data each month. We also looked at the range of plans available, including unlimited data plans as well as plans for low-data users. Now that Virgin has dropped its Data Sharing Done Right plans, only four carriers — Boost, Cricket, MetroPCS and T-Mobile — offer prepaid family plans, so we focused on discounts available as you add lines to a prepaid plan. As with other categories, network performance, including our own 4G speed testing , figured into our choices.

What do you do when your home or office is situated in a mobile reception blank spot, or in a place where receiving a signal involves standing on the washing machine with one leg on the fridge and your head pressed against the ceiling?

Either situation is an impossible way to run your business life, and with the advent of mobile clients for social networks, such a lack of signal may adversely affect your social life too. Of course, you could simply change network, selecting the one that offers the best signal for your location, but for people with a company-supplied mobile phone that isn’t even an option, since you usually have to take what you’re given.

Perhaps you live or work in a location where there isn’t the faintest signal from any of the mobile networks: such places do exist, especially in remote coastal valleys. Changing networks wouldn’t make a jot of difference there, so what do you do in a situation like that?
