Security Tip
When changing your password, make your password difficult for a hacker to guess. Do not use the name of your pet or your child.

IT Tip
You can open your favorite daily Web pages in two clicks. First, create a folder in your bookmarks that contains the Web pages you visit daily. Right-click that folder and select "Open in Tabs" to get all your favorites opened in a new tab in the current window.

IT Sustainability Tip
Save paper by printing drafts and other documents that aren't final on the blank sides of pages that already have print on one side.
