User Names And Passwords - 10/23/13

  If I could change one thing in my life today it would be to create some kind of hack-proof universal password for all my needs.  I know some of you have more going on than I do but I am swimming in usernames and passwords.
  I've got any number of them at work to get into my computer and email, video and another series of them at home.  And don't forget for credit cards, atm, time sheet entry and unique identification and security symbols for every single bill I pay on line.
  All the experts say don't use the same passwords and usernames and I get that. They also say don't write this information down for fear it will fall into the wrong hands.   And if you do write it down, don't put it in your purse or wallet or near your computer.  Get real.  If I don't write them down somewhere there is a one hundred percent chance when I need one of them I will not be able to remember it, them.
  What's worse, several of my accounts require me to make new passwords every month or so.  About the time you get use to entering one and it's second nature for a job I need to do, it's time to change.  And if the new information you enter isn't complicated enough the computer program let's you know about it.  Whew!
  I still have all the same issues, but I feel a little better after venting.  I'm writing this blog from a colleague's computer while the tech guys figure out what's wrong with mine.  Isn't it always something?

JETS-REX-BUMGARNER

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Michael Vick? Geno Smith? New York Jets coach Rex Ryan knows who he wants as quarterback for his limping team. Ryan jokes they're "gonna go with that Bumgarner guy." Madison Bumgarner is the San Francisco Giants ace and World Series MVP. Bumgarner secured the Giants a Game 7 series victory with a five-inning save. He had two series wins as a starter, too. The Jets are 1-and-7 this season, including seven straight losses. Bumgarner likely won't be available for the Jets on Sunday, so Ryan says he's going with his own lefty, Vick.

WHISKEY WAR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- It's Jack versus George in Tennessee -- in a battle over the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey. The parent company of Jack Daniels supports the law that includes requiring Tennessee whiskey to be made from 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and a minimum of 80 proof. The British corporate parent of George Dickel contends those regs are too restrictive. A state subcommittee heard testimony on the issue yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to consider changes to the Tennessee whiskey law in January.

DALLAS ZOO-GIRAFFE

DALLAS (AP) -- He's an awfully big newborn -- six feet tall and about 120 pounds. But this big, little guy has an even taller mom. The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe. The healthy male calf was born Sunday and the birth was announced Wednesday. The calf doesn't have a name yet. The Dallas Zoo's giraffe herd has now grown to a dozen.

COYOTES-QUEENS ZOO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City has five new residents. They're orphaned coyote pups who have a new home at the Queens Zoo. The animals were rescued in Massachusetts, where they were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator. Now, the coyotes have their own exhibit in Queens. The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo specializes in animals from the Americas. The pups are the only coyotes on exhibit there.
