Sites of the Month – Great Sites To Check Out In November

Thanksgiving's Rich History – If you think of food and football when you hear the word "Thanksgiving," you might want to check out this site, which describes the fascinating history of the holiday. The practice of setting aside a special day to give thanks goes all the way back to traditions from the 1600s.
Loyalty Made Easy – Loyalty programs for airlines, hotels, shops, and credit cards are great, but if you have more than a few, they can be hard to keep track of. The free Points service allows you to manage all your programs in one spot, move points between programs, and even reward yourself with gift cards.
The Reluctant Gourmet – The name says it all: some of us want to be great cooks, but don't know where to start. Now you do! This site offers everything from cooking tips, to information on cooking tools and ingredients, to meal planning strategies and — of course — delectable recipes.
Learn About Life on Mars – Mars has been in the news a lot lately – because scientists have discovered water there and because of the new movie, The Martian. Want to know more about the Red Planet? This site has videos, images, articles, and much more. Don't miss the updates on the Curiosity Rover, which is there now!

Short FAQ – How Do I Stay Safe When Using Public Wi-Fi?

Question: I've heard it can be dangerous to use public Wi-Fi, but sometimes I need to connect when I'm out and about. Are there steps I can take to do it safely? 

Download Graphics to ViewAnswer: Before you even get to a Wi-Fi location, take these three steps: make sure your software patches are up to date; set up two-factor authentication on services (like Facebook) that allow it; and make sure all your passwords are complex and difficult to guess. Then, when you get to the Wi-Fi location, verify with someone at the establishment that the network you're using is legitimate. Next, turn off file sharing for your device (how you do this will depend on which operating system you use). Once you're on the network, check for "https://" at the beginning of URLs to ensure you're using secure websites. Finally, when you're ready to log off, set your device to not "connect automatically" to the network again.
