“Honoring the Promise” with the Stars

Nancy Brinker addresses the crowd

“You are the future” Ambassador Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan G. Komen Foundation told a crowd of young Washingtonians. We attended the Komen Young Professionals reception held at a pink-lit Peacock Cafe’ in Georgetown. The event help kick off the buzz for what promises to be one of the premiere events of the Fall: Komen’s “Honoring the Promise” Gala on October 28th at The Kennedy Center. Last year, the non-profit celebrated 30 years of trying to find a cure and saving lives along the way. Last year’s star-studded gala included presenters Laura Bush, Gabrielle Union, Cynthia Nixon, Tory Burch… performers like Olivia Newton John, Lynda Carter.. and the Australian pop star who’s dating one of the Jonas Brothers, Delta Goodrem. That passionate evening raised a phenomenal $2 million dollars.

Protect your phone from being hacked

Based on your phone carrier depends how you can prevent your phone from being hacked by someone using a spoofing company. Watch the story… and below I’ve outline what you can do to protect your voicemail depending on what service provider you use.

1.Press and hold 1 to call into the voice mail system from your wireless device.
2.Press * to skip to the main menu.
3.Press 4 for personal options.
4.Press 2 for administrative options.
5.Press 1 for password options.
6.Press 1 to turn password on or off.
7.Press 2 to turn password on.
8.When prompted, enter your four- to 15-digit password, then press the # key.

1.Access your voice mail account from your Sprint phone.
2.Once in the main menu, choose “change personal options.”
3.Next, choose “administrative options.”
4.You will hear “skip passcode is currently turned on.” To turn it off, follow the prompts.
5.The passcode you originally created will be played to you. Be sure to remember it, as you will need to enter it to gain access to your voice mail in the future.

To turn off/on your voice mail password security, follow these steps:

1.Call your voice mailbox from your mobile phone by pressing and holding the 1 key or by dialing 123.
2.Once you arrive at your voice mailbox, press the * key to ensure you are in the main menu area.
3.To access the password security menu, press the 5 key.
4.To toggle your password on or off, press the 2 key.

Verizon is the one major cell carrier in the U.S. that requires you enter your PIN every time you access your voice mail. In fact, you have to jump through a little hoop if you want things set differently. So odds are, if you’re a Verizon customer, you’re already safe from this kind of an attack on your voice mail.

Change your default PIN
But you’re only as safe as your personal identification number. If you’ve never set up a PIN for your voice mail account, you might have a default one, and anyone could dial in from any number, use the default PIN, and listen to your messages. To keep your voice mail private, you should set up a PIN or change your default PIN as soon as you can.

If you set your PIN to something simple, like your address or birthday, you’re not completely at risk, but you are close. Try to use something unique that has no connection to your personal life. It doesn’t have to be hard to remember — something like 7676 works well — but unrelated to you. Taking this simple step can help ensure your private messages stay that way.

Um ok I’m lying. I hate to floss.. and I’m married to a dentist so imagine how those night time conversations go. However, I love finding new ways to motivate me to do things that are good for me. I am thrilled to see friend and local cosmetic dentist Dr. Alex Naini join Dr. Oz’s panel of experts. Her first piece answers the question “Do I really need to floss?”  What I love about her advice is that it is the real deal. Like when she shares most people think they brush twice daily, their teeth are clean and they have fresh breath. Dr. Alex says “People usually don’t realize that their breath stinks and a lot of times their loved ones are too nice to tell them the truth.”

As you grab for that tic-tac.. chew on this: In her article Dr. Alex says if you’re going to pick between brushing and flossing, FLOSS! She repeats, FLOSS! Curious? Read more at Dr. Oz…
