Dropbox software for syncing files

Are you a thumb drive user? Would you like a better solution?

In my work I am always on the go and for years I have used a thumb drive to keep files current between my desktop and my laptop.

Now I found a better way, I just started using Dropbox. It's a great way to keep files synced between computers or share files with others. It's a cloud application that syncs your files online and across your computers. It really simplifies file syncing and sharing. You can also use it to share photos online with friends.

I also have my files linked to my EVO Android phone and it's just great to have my docs and pictures in the palm of my hand.

3D at the NAB - WOW

This year I worked for Panasonic at the NAB convention in Las Vegas. 3D video solutions were in great abundance. Panasonic had their 152 inch plasma monitor that shows 3D. All I can say is WOW I am now a huge fan of 3D and Panasonic seems to be ahead of the pack with their new 3D camera system (AG-3DA1), software, monitors and switchers. I already own and operate Panasonic equipment and their new stuff is just great. Before the conventions I thought 3D was so-so, now I am a real believer in 3D!

Human Trafficking of Children

For the last several months I have been working on training development that helps law enforcement recognize the indicators of human trafficking. Now I am in the middle of a project that addresses the issues of trafficking of children.

It seems even more egregious that children are the victims of traffickers. They are the most vulnerable members of society and the most easily victimized. In addition to law enforcement officers other first responders can help. Fire fighters, paramedics, hospital staff and even code enforcement officers can make a difference. They need to look beneath the surface, dig a little deeper and if they ask the right questions they can help these innocent young victims.

Educating first responders is only the first step, the public needs to be more informed so they can recognize the indicators. These young victims live amongst us and are hiding in plain sight. They just need a little help to get out of this modern day form of slavery.

If you suspect someone is a victim of human trafficking please contact the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at: 1-888-3737-888
