Security Tip
Don't leave your laptop in the car - not on the seat, not in the trunk. Parked cars are a favorite target of laptop thieves, so don't help them by leaving your laptop unattended. If you must leave your laptop behind, keep it out of sight.

IT Tip
Close all open Microsoft Word and/or Excel files by holding down the shift key and clicking "File" and then "Close All".

IT Sustainability Tip
The benefits of electronic communications mean a single email can replace 10 print outs, letter headed paper, envelopes and so on.
