WPA Key

Here is how to find the WPA key that your Windows 10 is using to connect to your WiFi network. Your Windows 10 is able to connect to your WiFi network. It may be using a WPA key to connect to your router. Suppose you have another new device you need to connect to WiFi network. Of course, you don’t remember what that WPA key is. But you can “look up” that key on your Windows 10 machine which is able to connect. Here is how… Go to Settings -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center. Click the “Wi-Fi” link to bring up the WiFi Status dialog In the Wi-Fi status dialog, click “Wireless Properties” This brings up the Wireless Network Properties dialog. Click the “Security” tab.

Change Primary Domain in GSuite (Google Workplace)

You can add a secondary domain to an existing Gsuite account and then make that domain the primary by adding a domain alias and then configuring each user`s Gmail account to Make Default. That way you don`t have to change any MX records or anything special on the Google side.

Statins

These are only my observations and recommendations to friends and family. This is a really interesting subject to me because only 50 years ago there was very little obesity and diabetes but now heart disease has become the biggest killer on the planet. Please feel free to talk to you doctor about the information here. This does not constitute advice. Statins Statins are the most lucrative drug in history but the most ineffectual, even damaging, with catastrophic side effects. The original pre-2006 medical trials were over-stating their efficacy but after new guidelines were introduced post 2006 they ceased to show any benefits. Some of the most eminent doctors in the world warn about the dangers:- Zoe Harcombe, Aseem Malhotra (cardiologist often seen on BBC), Prof Tim Noakes, Stephen Phinney, Peter Attia MD, Gary Taubes, Gary Fettke, Dr Eric Westman (author of Atkins 2nd Revolution), Dr Robert Lustig (Sugar: The Bitter Truth), Nina Teicholz (journalist and author of The Big Fat Surprise) and literally thousands of epidemiologists, oncologists, doctors, dieticians have been trying to get the message across to the public in face of huge lobbying by the fake foods industry (coca cola, Kellogg, Nestle, Kraft, Monsanto etc) who promote cheap carbohydrate products full of sugar and fried in vegetable oil, instead of quality meat and dairy which humans have been eating for 3 million years. Now I know all this seems unbelievable because why would doctors still prescribe statins for people with high cholesterol? Well, 28% of doctors do not, and that number is growing. The mainstream of the medical industry has been slow to catch up with the outlying specialist groups like diabetes, cancer, heart disease, epilepsy and many others. See diabetes.org for example. Whats the problem with statins? As you get older you find that you can suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension) which is caused by narrowing of the blood vessels and this is called atherosclerosis or cardio vascular disease. It can also lead to heart disease and heart attack. It is brought about by plaques of cholesterol and so it was thought that lowering cholesterol would alleviate it. Statins stop the liver producing cholesterol. The problem is cholesterol is only there because it is repairing the endothelium (blood vessel wall) because something is damaging them. We now know that insulin is the major cause of damage to the blood vessels. Unfortunately statins lower a particular type of cholesterol so although your total cholesterol goes down, it is not the right cholesterol. There is this concept if good and bad cholesterol Im sure youve heard. Youre supposed to be high with the good one and low with the bad. However, research has proven that actually the low levels of bad cholesterol have no bearing on the outcomes of heart disease. Statins then go on to damage other areas of your body, such as muscles and joints, see the documentation that came with your statins for a full list. Statins also have a strong link with an increase in type 2 diabetes. The proper way to fix your metabolic diseases (which can include hypertension, CVD, CHD, diabetes, pre-diabetes, obesity, atherosclerosis, cancer, dementia, leaky gut, hyperglycaemia, high HbA1C, high triglycerides) is to lower insulin*. *Insulin is a hormone which processes the sugar in your blood, either moving it into your muscles or liver, or turning it into fat as a way of storing energy for later use. Sugar cannot stay in your blood (hyperglycaemia) as it will damage the blood vessels (atherosclerosis) and many other cells in your body. The average person must only carry about a teaspoon of sugar (glucose) in the blood, 3 teaspoons and you are dead. Type 1 diabetics must inject insulin to process the sugar in the blood otherwise they will die. Very often they are hyperglycaemic and the sugar damages the very small capillaries in the back of the eye, toes, etc and they sometimes go blind or need amputations. Type 2 diabetics are completely different, they have too much insulin and require even more to process the sugar in the blood because they have stopped responding to the level they produce. High levels of insulin are responsible for the diabetes and obesity and linked to all of the diseases of metabolic syndrome. So how can you lower insulin? Stop eating sugar, fizzy drinks, cereals, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes immediately and then watch your body dysfunctions decrease. Watch your hunger decrease. Eat eggs and bacon for breakfast, avocados, butter, cream, cheese, nuts, olives, steak, pork, lamb, low starch veg like broccoli, cabbage, spinach. Keep away from processed food like margarine (including Flora), crisps, tins of anything like baked beans, packets of anything like chicken kievs, cottage pies, lasagnes. Add some of these back in as a treat after you have healed yourself. Supporting research: 136,000 Americans were tested after an MI (Myocardial Infarction/Heart attack). 70% had BELOW average LDL cholesterol. Show this to your doctor! By the way, n=136,000 is a huge sample size, very rare to find such conclusive evidence. When the USDA introduced the dietary guidelines to eat more carbs, obesity increased dramatically and is still rising today. Not to mention heart disease which is the worlds biggest killer, and diabetes which costs the US more than the UKs entire NHS budget. Chart from the WHO showing the higher your cholesterol the LESS chance you have of dying (men). Even more striking for women. So you need to get your cholesterol up. Are Flora and Benecol type products OK to eat? No, they are not. They are a highly processed food which is basically a chemical sludge with added colour and flavour. They are produced under intense heat and pressure and use a metallic catalyst to solidify the sludge. They contains at least 15 ingredients, including:- PLANT STEROL ESTERS: Cholesterol-lowering additive. Interferes with absorption of some fat-soluble vitamins, principally carotenes. Potential hormone disrupters. Not proven safe for children or pregnant women. VEGETABLE OIL: Basic ingredient. The description on the label, “including sunflower oil” suggests that Flora is a mix of different oils. This mix can change from batch to batch according to the market price of the various oils. Most vegetable oils in processed foods are based on corn or sunflower oil, high in omega-6 fatty acids. Over-consumption of omega-6 is linked to cancer, immune system damage, hormone imbalance, heart disease and stroke. MONO- AND DI-GLYCERIDES OF FATTY ACIDS (E471), SUNFLOWER LECITHIN: Emulsifiers. This spread is a mixture of oil and water. Emulsifiers hold the mix together. Fatty acid esters are also commonly used in junk foods to keep them from getting stale. Flora’s use of sunflower lecithin is in response to consumer worries about the GM status of the world’s soya. Sunflower products tend to be GM-free. MODIFIED TAPIOCA STARCH: Thickener, stabiliser. Modified food starch is a starch that has been treated physically or chemically to modify one or more of its properties. This all-purpose thickener is derived from cassava root or yucca plants and is at home in spreads as it is in adhesives, explosives, paper manufacture, and textile finishings. It is not a substance found in nature, it adds no nutritional value and there is no information on its health effects. FLAVOURINGS: Adds taste. Flavourings can be mixes of several synthetic chemicals. Essentially perfumes by another name, they will be derived from petrochemicals and contain the same range of neurotoxins, carcinogens and allergens as found in all perfumes. Ingredients of Butter: Butter (try Kerrygold - grass-fed) A good video to watch is Robert Lustigs - Sugar: The Bitter Truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM&t=1801s

WhatsApp hacking

If you receive a Text or WhatsApp asking you to forward someone "the code" and it looks like its from a friend or colleague, dont send it - call them instead to make sure. Several of my customers have been hacked this way, the message looks genuine and theyve been caught out. How do they do it? ============== Basically, they install WhatsApp on a burner phone, put in your phone number, text you asking for the code and if you think its from a friend or colleague they receive it and its game over. Why do they do it? ============== Once they have access to your WhatsApp they look through your past messages for passwords etc and gain access to your accounts on various sites. If they get access to your email youre in trouble! They also have access to all your WhatsApp friends and colleagues so they can mount more spoofs and they look even more genuine! Pass this on if you think it could help someone you know with WhatsApp.

ROKU EXPRESS – WONDERFUL MEDIA DEVICE

8 Mar 2018 Get one! Pay only a paltry £29.99 on Amazon for a Roku Express and enjoy YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime or any number of other streaming services PLUS your home Media Server (e.g. Plex) for your photos and movies and you will never have to use that terrible software that came with your Smart TV ever again (yes, I’m talking to you Panasonic). The Roku Express is super-fast, it comes with a 3M sticky pad so you can attach it to the side of your TV without power (works off HDMI and USB slot to provide source and power), and the remote control is absolutely superb. The Ultra does 4K, the Express+ has added composite cable, the streaming stick is more portable.

ALCOHOL DISRUPTS SLEEP

18 Mar 2018 You don’t necessarily realise it, but alcohol is preventing you from having REM sleep (dreaming phase, memory sorting) as well as your nightly NREM repair. There are 2 main phases of sleep, NREM (bodily repair) and REM (memory organisation). You need approx 8 hours sleep every night to perform both phases at least twice. You may find that a night cap or a binge booze before bedtime gets you to sleep and keeps you there, but in fact studies show that the process of alcohol breakdown produces aldehydes which interfere with the normal patterns, leaving you starved of both types even though you believe you’ve been rested. A similar effect is produced by sleeping tablets, which is why low level mood lighting, hot milk works much better for actual sleep and why blue-LED (iPhone, TV) activity should be avoided an hour or two before bedtime.

STILL NOT CLUED UP ON DIET – PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND

18 Mar 2018 UNBELIEVABLE…Public Health England are still in the 70s when it comes to recommendations about food/calories/portion sizes, they must be sponsored by Papa John’s! These people are responsible for our nation’s health! Let’s take a look at the idiotic statements heard today on LBC’s Nick Ferrari show: PHE says children eat up to 500 too many calories a day — equivalent to an extra meal WRONG A HEALTHY diet does not offset the harm of too much salt, say experts. It raises blood pressure which is linked to a higher risk of heart attack and stroke WRONG PUBLIC Health England wants people to regulate their diet by eating 400 calories for breakfast, 600 for lunch and 600 for dinner — that’s 1,600 a day WRONG Snacks and drinks should take the amount up to a daily total of 2,000 calories for women and 2,500 for men WRONG I’m very surprised they didn’t mention low fat substitues and exercise to complete this debacle! They must have a vested interest in keeping the population eating carbohydrates, otherwise the lid would be blown off by now. Obesity, diabetes and metabolic diseases are NOT caused by excessive calorie intake but by hormones, otherwise nobody would enter puberty as a teen. Did you start eating more and exercising less one day when you were 13 in order to gain body mass? Of course not, and it’s the same in adulthood, hormones (this time insulin) is responsible for weight gain and, don’t forget, it’s completely normal for your body to pack on the pounds if you are eating a “summer” diet rich in carbs and sugar, fattening up for winter. However, you must at some point start the opposite and regulatory process of eating a “winter” diet. It matters not how much you eat and how much you exercise, but what you eat and when. Your current Western diet of carbs, soda, sweets and fruit is perfect for your “fattening up” phase, but you can’t eat that all year round and expect to remain slim and healthy, you must at some point enter the “hibernation” phase where carbs are slim pickings and you need to shoot a rabbit or dear to survive.

GLASSES OFF TO READ?

Found this intersting article about people who suffer from BOTH myopia (short-sightedness) and presbyopia (long-sightedness) and what the options are. After age 40, the single pair of glasses or contact lenses you previously wore generally will no longer give you clear vision at all distances — or at least not without some compromises. These vision problems are caused by presbyopia, which affects all of us beginning in middle age and reduces our ability to see at all distances. Many vision correction options are available, such as presbyopia surgery and multifocal contact lenses or eyeglasses. If you need cataract surgery, you also have the option of choosing multifocal intraocular lenses to restore your ability to see at all distances. In some cases, however, you may need to consider a combination of options to fully address problems caused by presbyopia. If you are nearsighted, you have an advantage when you reach your 40s. Once presbyopia occurs, nearsighted eyes still see well up-close — if you remove your eyeglasses. Of course, with your glasses removed, distance vision is blurred. So you will need to put your glasses back on to see clearly across the room. Beginning at around age 40, you’ll find that the usual glasses or contacts you always wore will not correct focusing problems caused by presbyopia.The amount of nearsightedness you have determines how close or far you need to hold an item to see it clearly without your glasses on. If you are mildly nearsighted (with a prescription of -1.50 or -2.00 D, for example) you will see very well at a normal reading distance of 14 to 16 inches from your face. But if you’re highly nearsighted (let’s say -5.00 D or higher), you’ll have to bring items much closer to your eyes to see them clearly. If that’s the case, you may want to consider the next option. http://www.allaboutvision.com/over40/presbyopia-options.htm

BROTHER CONTROL CENTER 4 CONTAINS MULTIPLE PRINTERS

23 Apr 2018 Over a few months you tend to get several Brother printers appearing in the Control Center program for some weird reason. The extra printers/scanners have a #2 or #3 designation and you can build up a nice big list of them. In the picture below, the printer is a MFC-J4625DW LAN but there are 2 more, MFC-J4625DW LAN #2 and MFC-J4625DW. What you should do is choose the non-functioning extra printers and then choose Uninstall from the Tools section. Do this as many times as is necessary, bearing in mind if you remove all the printers then you will need to re-install the brother printer driver software from scratch because the final printer uninstall gets rid of everything.

NEVER, EVER BUY A NAS DRIVE! – HERE ARE THE REASONS:

9 May 2018 Network Attached Storage “seems” like a great idea, a nice, neat, little box sitting in the office whirring away storing your office files and not taking up too much room or power. BUT little do you know how dangerous these devices are to your files, in so many ways: They contain a mirrored pair of hard drives so that if one drive fails the other carries on, but there is no warning because no one is monitoring it, and believe me, it WILL fail eventually. They run Linux, so unless you know your way around it expertly, you are gonna eventually hit trouble. You can’t hook up a monitor to it, so if you can’t access it via the network port you are stuffed. In the event of failure, if you take it apart, remove the drives and hook them up to a PC you *might* be lucky to see the data. My colleague was asked to help set up a NAS for a new customer, “Throw it in the bin now,” was his advice. “But it’s got two drives”, “Ok, throw both of them in the bin now!” A NAS drive earlier today, before losing all your data.

Booting information of your PC has been written over. Let’s reboot and see whether it go fine or not!” A couple things to note. First, when using command select disk, this is referring to your Windows 10 boot/repair media located in your CD or USB drive. Second, at the final step I was a little confused by the wording when addressing the language. The command I used was bcdboot c:Windows /l en-US /s b: /f All. That’s about it! I was just about ready to wipe everything out and do a fresh install, so I’m incredibly glad I found this post.

NURSE STUDY FINDS LINK BETWEEN CANCER AND LACK OF SLEEP

29 Jun 2018 A study in China collating 61 studies has found a link between night shift workers and certain types of cancer. I find this interesting because I recently read Matthew Walker’s book “Why We Sleep” and he mentions 8 hours sleep per night is absolutely necessary for good health. The increase may come from the lymph system not removing cells that are due for recycling (about every 6 weeks) which occurs at night, instead they fester and can turn cancerous. Two separate hormones are at play here, 1) Melatonin, released by the pineal gland which builds up gradually as darkness falls to begin the scavenging process and 2) Seratonin which increases with daylight. Two other major factors in cancer prevalence are Vitamin D and high meat consumption. Vitamin D is a essential to maintain a healthy immune system, and meat is extremely healthy when eaten in the right quantities, but not when out of proportion to vegetables. Obesity is also a known factor, thought to be the second major cause of cancer in the UK. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/women-night-shifts-cancer-risk-higher-diet-exercise-study-a8147956.html

THE NO. 1 MOST EFFICACIOUS DRUG IS…VITAMIN D

21 Jul 2018 Some recent studies are revealing that Vitamin D is the most important element in the body to fight cancer and a whole raft of other diseases. Vitamin D, or rather a steroid hormone substrate, is produced on exposure to the UVb light from the sun and circulates through the blood system enabling your immune system to respond where necessary. Unfortunately, over the last few decades we’ve been told to fear the sun, and worse, to stay indoors or use sunscreen whenever we venture outside. But getting proper levels of Vitamin D helps your body fight cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, ms, diabetes and flu. The common cold is mainly active during winter, when exposure to the sun is at it’s year round lowest, and the more northerly people live, the more likely they are to catch a cold. https://www.creighton.edu/creightonmagazine/2017smrfeaturevitamind/

CALORIES IN, CALORIES OUT – WRONG!

9 Jan 2020 Any dietary advice you are given that references calories in/calories out as a weight loss method should be immediately ignored because the data supporting this theory is from just ONE study involving 12 PEOPLE. Coca Cola and many other food producers base their entire culture on recommending that you can enjoy their products as long as you watch your calories in/calories out, usually their adverts contain sporty scenarios showing how fit people can chug away on sugary drinks and snacks with impunity. But, we already know from shows like America’s Biggest Loser all the sad, tragic tales of contestants putting the weight back on in the following weeks because this idea is basically wrong. Hormones play a much bigger part in weight gain/loss than calorie counting, which is why puberty (i.e. hormones) adds so much fat and muscle to kids growing up, why gastric bypasses work, why insulin (a hormone) resistance is such a massive problem worldwide, why there are 1.5 billion overweight people in the world eating the recommended high carbohydrate diet.

OIL DOESN’T COME FROM DEAD CREATURES

9 Jan 2020 “Oil is generated deep in the core of the Earth, it’s like a gigantic oven, and through the enormous temperature and pressure it’s forced up through the granite mantle through fissures and cracks into various reservoirs. It’s basically calcium carbonate and iron. No dead dinosaurs involved.” This is a really interesting piece because although you can get oil from dead plants and marine organisms, you can also get it a-biotically. NASA’s Cassini probe has discovered what is most probably hydrocarbons on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons and which amounts to more than all the oil on Earth. Since there has never been biogenic life on Titan it must be a-biotic. A-biotic “oil” has also been created in the lab as well, so we know it’s certainly possible. The next step is to create hydrocarbon fuel from carbon in the atmosphere, using the power of the sun to knock out oxygen atoms of the donor carbon material, water (H2O) is converted into hydrogen (H2), and carbon dioxide (CO2) turns into carbon monoxide (CO), which can be used to produce fuel: specifically, gaseous or fluid hydrocarbons such as methane, petrol and diesel.

KETO DIET…STRANGE OUTCOMES

9 Jan 2020 After another alcohol and chocolate fuelled Xmas, I believe I am still feeling the benefits of my Ketogenic diet experiment of May to July. The keto diet is 75% fat, 20% protein and just 5% carbs which has the effect of switching the body into burning ketones for fuel instead of the normal Western source, sugar. At one time, people in the northern or southern hemispheres would have entered ketosis during the winter months, living off stored fat from a carb-filled summer and mainly eating livestock or game. Of course, these days, a supermarket on every corner takes away this important, annual, physiological process. But switching to a keto diet by force teaches your body about this process again and it doesn’t forget about it easily! I am virtually incapable of gaining weight, even after several blowouts of gigantic proportions along with booze, chocolates and mince pies.
