Security Tip
Be aware of risks with social networking sites. Sites like MySpace and Facebook are a common target for thieves and stalkers. They can allow someone the ability to gather information about you that may aid them in stealing your identity. Think twice before you post any sensitive or damaging information on these sites.

IT Tip
Control Incoming Emails - Use Microsoft Outlook Rules Wizard to help screen your e-mail and delete mail that you are not interested in

IT Sustainability Tip
Print rough drafts of papers on the back of scrap paper.
