iPhone App Helps Parents Stay One Step Ahead of Lice

Five words or less(NewsUSA) – Taste matters when it comes to baby food.
Erin Jarvis was getting desperate. Her 7-month-old daughter Autumn simply wasn’t eating any store-bought food. Like so many moms and dads, Jarvis was worried her baby wasn’t getting the nutrition needed for proper growth. Then she tried Baby Gourmet, a new arrival to the U.S. market and available at Walmart.
“As soon as we tried Baby Gourmet, Autumn made a sound like ‘Mmm’ and ate the whole pouch in one sitting,” Jarvis says with a smile. “We’ve tried a lot of different brands, but this is the only one she now finishes every time.”
Baby Gourmet was created by a mom who, like so many others, was worried about her child’s well-being. “When Findlay wouldn’t eat, I was frantic that she wasn’t getting the nutrition she needed to be healthy,” says Jennifer Broe.
That duel concern over nutrition and taste is why she started making her own baby food and founded Baby Gourmet to help other mothers feed their children healthy, organic food.
With flavors like Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp, Vanilla Banana Berry Risotto and Sweet Potato Pie with organic cinnamon, Baby Gourmet offers taste, variety and nutrition.
Each package of Baby Gourmet passes strict nutritional and food safety guidelines and passes all USDA and organic requirements. But Baby Gourmet goes a step further — every recipe starts out in Broe’s own kitchen and ends with a personal taste test at the manufacturer.
Now, relieved moms everywhere are starting to express their personal joy. “My daughter is just over 1 year old and has refused absolutely all food for seven months. She tried the sweet potato pie today and ate the entire thing in two sittings. I was so happy,” Abby Ferris recently shared on Facebook.
Another mother, Kristen Ellison, also posted “I have a 12 1/2-month-old who has refused all solids until we tried the pear and garden greens. It literally brought tears because we have tried everything!”
Mothers interested in putting Baby Gourmet to the test can find nine choices at Walmart. Find stores near you, and learn more at www.babygourmet.com.

Protecting Your Digital Memories

<b>Protecting Your Digital Memories</b>“></td>
<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – The majority of U.S. homes today have at least one computer, and perhaps an MP3 player, digital camera or camcorder to go with it.

It’s staggering to think how much of our lives are digital: music, photos, movies, e-mail and legal or financial documents. With so much vital information stored electronically, it becomes increasingly important to keep it all safe.

So, how do you protect your digital assets without becoming a computer geek? Simple:

Step 1: Know where your data are located. Maybe you have a few photos still on a digital camera, some music on the laptop at work and more files on a home computer. Before making another move, take stock of everything electronic that’s important to you (including bills, bank statements and memories) and, preferably, move it to one device.

Step 2: Choose a second location to store backups. The one place you will likely choose to store all of your digital files is your main computer. That solves the first problem of being able to find it all quickly. Now, you have to make sure the information is safe from harm.

This means storing it in two locations – or backing up that digital data to another device – so if your computer gets a virus or crashes, you still have it all handy.

For this, consider purchasing an external disk drive with 320GB – more storage than on many home computers – for less than $100. Available at electronics stores, these plug into laptops and computers and appear as another drive under “My Computer.”

Step 3: Time to move your data. You know where your digital files are, and where the copies are going (an external drive), so how do they get there? You could copy each file manually, or install backup software that does it automatically. One program is Acronis True Image Home (http://www.acronis.com/newsusa1).

Timed to a weekly or daily schedule that you set, backup software can create a snapshot of your entire computer, including all applications and files, and put that snapshot on another device of your choosing. If something happens, you can restore your entire disk drive and digital assets in minutes, not hours or days.

Computers can be replaced, but the digital memories on them aren’t always replaceable. Backing up is the best choice for keeping them safe, be they photos, music or documents.
