      They are considered some of the smartest animals in the world, so can I really teach them new tricks? 

       

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

       

      I got to go behind the scenes to take part in Sea World's Dolphin Interaction Program in San Diego, California.  The program was created for anyone who wants to get in the water and learn all about the beautiful bottlenose dolphin anatomy, training and husbandry.  In the first few minutes, I find out what it really takes to get dolphins to jump...

      Even splash on command!!

      They are so sweet... I can't believe how much fun it was to be right there in the tank playing with these 500 pound animals!

       

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

       

      I learned quickly, that dolphins (like most animals) respond best to a reward.  In fact, they won’t even look your way unless you have a handful of fish... or in this case, squid!

      The trainers have been working with these dolphins for years... they say it's the coolest job in the world, but it takes a lot of time and patience.  Every day they spend hours in this tank, getting the animals ready to peform for a big audience.  It’s a tourist hot spot, so they always have to be on their game!

      They showed me how they care for the animals when they’re sick, how certain noises work to get the dolphins’ attention, how sharp all those little teeth are, I even learned how to tell the difference between males and females (it’s not what you’d think)!

      Take the best of what MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, YouTube and LinkedIn have to offer and put them together in one place. It's called Tell The Internet and it was developed by a Steamboat Springs Teenager.

      “You don't have to go across the internet to do what you want you can go to one spot.”

      Nineteen-year-old Quentin Franke created Tell The Internet to change some of the limitations on popular social networks.

      “You always seem to run into a problem okay, they don't allow you to do this. Or they make it too complicated, too many adds the site loads slow,” says Franke.

      Tell The Internet has multiple customization tools to really make this site your own.

      "You can do more you can write more you're not limited to a small text box you have creativity," he adds.

      You can promote your personal brand or business with pictures, blogs even video.

      “You can make it look like, you know Yahoo's home page,” Franke says. “You can have your own pages for products you can promote things you can turn it into a corporate website.”

      The site is free and it’s completely free of advertisements.

      “It's really about the simplicity that's why I've tried to eliminate all ads.”

      You can run an entire website not just a profile page.

      “If they want to get on the web but they don't have the time to hire a web developer they don't have the money to hire a web developer this is completely free and it takes tops 5 minutes to set up an account.”

      If you thought Apple’s iPad broke the mold, check out this German design called the Gesture Cube. It’s a kind of hybrid device that’s a cross between the iPad and Microsoft’s touch-enabled table. It’s a 3D cube that requires only a hand motion, not actual touch. It could be used for anything from PC’s to home entertainment. As Gizmodo calls it "the iPad squared." Check out the video concept below.

  • Financial Dangers of Social Me Financial Dangers of Social Media

    • From: Nina_Sparano

      financial trouble.jpegSince the inception of social media, it has been a great way for people to reconnect. But did you know social networks are one way debt collectors are reconnecting with those who own them money? That’s just one of the many ways social media can get you into financial trouble.

      Mark Renn of GCM Career Specialists in Denver has seen plenty of examples of bad judgment on the Internet.

      “A young man had his MySpace photo of him doing something what was not only inappropriate but it was illegal, his employer found it and he was terminated his employment,” says Renn.

      “People write about their social life more than they probably should and present themselves as partiers that will get in the way of their careers and their promotions.”

      Electronic Investigator, Charles Tendell (ESCI) says social media sites are a breeding ground for scammers who want to steal your money and identity.

      "To steal your identity takes very, very little information it just has to be accurate information," Tendell says.

      What’s on your Facebook profile? Your dogs name? Your best friends name? Where you grew up?

      "Somebody goes to your banking page and they enter I forgot my password here, answer the secret questions what's your favorite dog what's the name of the street you grew up on, they have that information," adds Tendell.

      Scammers posting as friends, Charles says, can dig up your personal information.

      “Once you are their friend, they can see date of birth , they can see address and phone number if you've got it up there so now they have all of your information they can take that information and pretend to be you and steal your identity.”

      Social media has also become a tool for collection agencies trying to track down debtors.

      “They are evolving to the technology and see if this person is on Facebook then they can use this fake Facebook profile,” Charles says.

      If you are posting pictures of your lavish life, a collector may be paying attention.

      “They can do an analysis and say wait a minute this guy is supposed to be broke he's not paying any of his bills but that's a brand new Lexus he's leaning on.”

      There are ways to track who’s searching for your information online. ZabaSearch, the online people finder database has a free site that can track anyone who searches for your personal information on their site.

      If you’re up in the mountains during ski season you’ve probably experience the wrath of I-70 traffic. With all of the technology available to warn you of possible delays, it’s not always easy to get that information to you in time.

      A locally developed website has put together traffic, weather, Twitter, blogging and real-time road reports all at your fingertips. It’s called Go I70.

      "By giving people information about when they can void peak travel times we hope that everyone will have a stress free trip to the mountains," says Margret Bowes of the I70 coalition.

      “The site also features a blog that in advance on every weekend for holiday we are going to give detailed travel forecasts.”  

      Go I-70 is also powered by what they call “jackrabbits,” a system of travelers tweeting real-time road conditions right from the road.

      “Those reports are posted immediately to our website and to our mobile phone application,” says Bowes.

      The mobile app alerts you to any changes to traffic and gives you estimated time delays. So, instead of hurrying up to wait in a line of traffic you can plan ahead.

      “They can sign up to have text alerts directly to their phone,” adds Bowes. “You always hear people say if I only knew what time I needed to leave to avoid the traffic well we are giving them that information.”

      Very few details have been released so far but this little guy sure sounds impressive. If you’re a Droid fan but don’t like the bulk, this could be your perfect solution. The Motorola Devour is due out next month.

      Here are the specs drawn up by the folks at Gizmodo

      • A touch-sensitive navigation pad
      • A 3.1" capacitive touch screen (to the Droid's 3.7-inch screen)
      • Pre-loaded applications such as Gmail, Google Talk, YouTube, Google Search and Google Maps with Google Maps Navigation, which implies that the software is at least Android 1.6, though hopefully 2.0 or 2.1.
      • MOTOBLUR, and all the social network-y business that entails.
      • An 8 GB microSD card

  • Childproof Your Electronics Childproof Your Electronics

      after.jpg

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Last month a 16-month old Longmont girl was severely injured and almost died after placing the end of a plugged in i-pod charger into her mouth. Every year 3-million kids are treated in the ER for injuries they receive at home. Laptops, desktops, keyboards, phones, iPods or any handheld device is attached to a power cord that needs to be protected. Childproofing your electronics is a modern parents’ responsibility. 

      Donica Huffman is a modern mom in a wired world. “Most people rely on their electronics, it's how they function,” says Huffman.

      “It's very important especially with the toddler, he's into poking things you know he's just curious.”

      The curious eyes of a child can get them into trouble. Childproofing your electronics can be quick and easy, starting with your outlets.

      “The outlets are a big concern because they are just at that height where they notice them,” adds Huffman.

      Electrician Paul Miller says for under $2, tamper-proof outlets are an easy option.

      "If I take this probe and try to plug it in, it wont' go in. this keeps a child from plugging something into an actually hole."

      Or you can take it one step further and physically move your outlets out of the reach of children.

      “For about $50 of costs and labor you can raise your outlets up and move cables behind your electronics,” says Miller.

      Wrapping up all of your cables and protecting them is a great way to keep them out of reach.

      “What I have here is part of a cable management system. I have a spiral cable which pretty much puts all of these cords together,” Miller says.

      Cover your cords with a plastic spiral cable that you can find at any computer store or a Radio Shack for about $5. You can also use a tamper-resistant power strip cover that protects all of your cords at once and makes it impossible for a child to grab.  You can find one at Babies-R-Us for about $7.99. (free shipping!)

      “You always have a bundle of chords just hanging around all over the place so getting them all in one spot getting them underneath the desk,” says Miller.

      You can mount the protected power strip under your computer desk so they are up and out of the way.

      “The dangers that you have on most anything that is attached is a little kid coming up to a table, grabbing hold of it and pulling a laptop over with it ontop of the child.” Another way to protect your children and your devices is to go wireless. Wireless keyboards and mouse packages are available for about $79.

      Miller says the Powermat is a wireless charging station for your handheld devices.

      “You're getting rid of multiple cords being plugged into walls you just got one point and you plug it in.” The Powermat will cost you $99 plus between $29- $39 for the BlackBerry or iPhone battery case.

      Another homemade cable management system that will only cost you a few dollars is the rain gutter system. Just use your old vinyl rain-gutters to hide all of your cables under a table or desk. All you need is a vinyl rain gutter (cut to size), two end caps, four hangers and some fasteners. You can put this together in just a few minutes and it will cost you less than $20. (see picture below) Read the step by step process on Lifehacker.

      It just takes a little time for a lot of piece of mind.

  • Does Magic Jack Really Work? Does Magic Jack Really Work?

      How would you like to eliminate your monthly phone bill without giving up the convenience of a land line? You’ve probably seen the device in a late night infomercial but have always wondered if it really works. It’s called, Magic Jack; a USB device that gives you a phone line by connecting your telephone right to your computer. There are plenty of modern alternative to the landline out there; Vonage, Skype but Magic Jack’s promise to wipe out your monthly phone bill is getting a lot of attention. Heidi Penney is a stay-at-home mom in Lakewood who wanted to give it a shot.

      "We thought if we could save a lot of money. Why not try it." Heidi wanted the dependability of a landline but not the price that comes along with it.

      “We pay about $32 dollars a month for phone it includes long distance and state calls,” she says.

      She recently installed Magic Jack into their home computer, connecting all of their home phones to a Magic Jack line.

      "I haven't noticed any difference on call quality on either phone,” adds Penney.

      All you have to do is plug it into your computers USB port, select a Denver area code and Magic Jack gives you a local number.

      magic-jack-notebook.jpg

      "It's a normal phone all, just pick up the phone and dial and it goes through.”

      Magic Jack costs about $39.99 for the device and $19.95 a year for unlimited calls in the U.S. and Canada. And the service is free for the first year.

      "We really like it. I think we're going to stick with it," says Heidi. But she adds, there is a down side. “If you turn your computer off your phone will turn off as well.”

      For Heidi however, it’s still worth saving $32 dollars a month.

      “I think we are def. ready to make the jump and get rid of the old phone.”

      You can buy Magic Jack online and it includes features like call waiting, call forwarding, voice mail and 911 service at no additional cost.

  • Extreme Kellie: San Diego Bi-P Extreme Kellie: San Diego Bi-Planes

    • From: Kellie_MacMullan
    • Description:

      Over the past year, I've been out trying some of the most extreme sports in Colorado.  This month, we're trying something new.  We're taking "Extreme Kellie" on the road to sunny southern California to try new adventures you just can't find here!

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

       

      First stop, I hit the beaches of San Diego!  There is truly nothing like the view of the ocean at sunset and I got to see it thousands of feet up in the air. We went barnstorming in a 1920's bi-plane; it was like taking a trip back in time...

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      We met pilot Chuck Buckley at Montgomery Field who showed us the classics... a North American Texan he takes tourists out on aerobatic rides, two Varga aircraft (dog fighter airplanes)...

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      And this- A 1927 travel air bi-plane, built out of metal, wood and fabric.  The best part, it's painted perfectly for a Bronco fan in San Diego!!!  I loved it!

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      Chuck started up the World War II engine, we geared up and headed straight for the coast.  

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      The plan: fly northbound around La Jolla, up toward the Torrey Pines area and then swing back into the airport.  It's truly one of the most gorgeous spots in California.  We could see for miles. 

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

       

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      The bi-planes are very much like travelling in a convertible, super noisy but a ton of fun!

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      We got to see the bay, the hills, ocean bluffs and beaches... all at sunset.  This is the lay of the land for our next few adventures and I couldn't wait to get started!

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      Extreme Kellie: San Diego

      Thanks again to Vitalyte and to Barnstorming Adventures.  You'll see more of the crew in the coming weeks... Next, I'm swimming with the dolphins at Sea World!

      Wednesday night at 7:00pm mountain time, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address. The annual event will recap the government’s accomplishments over the past year and lay out his agenda for 2010. For those of you not willing to tune into the major cable and network news channels to watch it, can watch it streaming on the CitizenTube Youtube Channel. Streaming the State of the Union over the Internet isn’t new but opening it up to follow up questions is. You can post your questions during the speech via video or text. The questions will be rated by the YouTube public and the winners will be included in a follow-up interview with the President. That will also be streamed on YouTube.
