How to Simplify Your Electronics

Many people get too many electronic devices. Old ones are replaced with newer models. There are cords and accessories to these devices all over the places. At this point you need to simply the electronics that are in your life.

First of all, look for ways of combining devices into just one device. For example many people can use a cell phone that also has the ability to read books, listen to music, watch video, and other things. This means that you can cut back on the total number of devices that you do have making everything a bit simpler.

Look for universal adapters. This can sit on your desk or wherever you tend to charge your devices. These universal adapters can make it so that you have fewer cords to deal with.

Look for automatic ways of backing up your devices. If you have many computers and cell phones, you need automatic backups to make sure that you keep all your data. Don’t complicate things and do this manually. Find automated ways that are simpler for you.

Try to keep your cords, manuals, CDs, and everything else related to your devices in one place. At times things can get complicated when everything gets all over the house. If you place them all in one place, you would know where to find everything.

Look for applications that you can use online. These are good because most of them can run across different platforms. This means that you will be able to access the same data on any computer or even on your cell phone. This simplifies things since you can just be using the same interface regardless wherever you are.

Do your best to stop buying the latest and greatest electronic gadgets. Many people will constantly upgrade to newer model when the older one is still in perfectly working condition. Upgrading devices less often will reduce the number of the extra devices that you have laying around that you really do not need.

Your Dog’s First Command and the Correct Use of Electronic Collars – First of a Two Part Series

You can use this method in teaching your dog to understand and obey numerous other commands. Before giving the command like to call the dog’s name first followed by the command. This will get your dog’s attention. Teaching the “bed” command, correctly, will make your dog a better companion and will facilitate future training efforts. This is equivalent to telling your child to “go to bed” and should probably be the first command you teach. Note that you can use any word you want: bed, kennel, crate, etc. You obviously need to be consistent using the same word. For this article I will be using the word bed. For puppies it will be easier to use a crate with a door, but a nice bed will do too. This is going to be your dogs’ safe zone. Your dog should always be safe when he is in his crate or bed.

The First Step

Ideally, start as soon as the new puppy joins the family. It is easier to put an eight to twelve-week-old puppy into a crate than a seventy-five pound-year-old dog that insists on refusing entry. But even for the older delinquent, the “Bed” command is the first step toward becoming an obedient and compliant dog.

Initially hold the dog by the collar or physically pick up a puppy and place the dog into the crate while saying “bed, bed, bed,” in a gentle, upbeat tone. Think of Pavlov’s bell as “ding, ding, ding,” not “clang, clang, clang.” Praise him or give him a treat. You cannot be lazy and take a half hearted approach to training. Once you start you must follow through with your commands or you will inadvertently embed in your dog the idea that he doesn’t’t have to listen to you. Do not take the approach of “Let’s see what happens if…. In any and all training you do. Resist the urge to give the “Bed” command without holding onto the dog to see what he will do. If the dog does not go in, either you will be forced to let him get away with it, and thereby teach him that he has options, or you will have to discipline him. Neither option is beneficial to your training program.
