Technology News – Studies Show Handwriting Improves Memory – Technology – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – According to a recent study at Kent State University, the Association for Psychological Science (APS) and others, using pen and paper instead of laptops to take notes boosts memory and increases the ability to retain and understand concepts. Of course, in the past, handwriting was the only option for capturing key information. But if a pencil broke or the pen stopped working, important details could be lost. Then, along came the laptop and tablet, and taking notes seemed so much easier.

But it turns out that taking notes by hand helps improve listening and cognition skills, and boosts the ability humans need to summarize information. The Journal of Psychological Science cites that taking handwritten notes appears to be more beneficial, as it helps one remember and understand the information given, as opposed to participants who mindlessly take verbatim notes on a laptop.

With that in mind, enter Boogie Board, creators of the new Blackboard, a device often referred to as an “eWriter” that features Liquid Crystal Paper. Blackboard allows users to write and erase electronically without using ink or paper: High tech meets traditional.

“With Blackboard, we’ve arrived at an incredible cross-section where high technology allows us to create a back-to-basics experience that somehow feels revolutionary and familiar at the same time,” says Hunter Morris, Blackboard’s director of product design.

“Quite ironically, we’ve developed a breakthrough tech product without the inconvenience of chargers, plugs or ports,” Morris adds.

With nothing to load or charge, Blackboard writes with absolutely no lag or delay, just like pen and paper, making it convenient on-the-go.

The new device comes in a large 8.5″ x 11″ letter-size, semi-transparent writing surface, and includes four different templates, which are also helpful in sketching out plans, taking notes, or planning your calendar. The screen is also perfect for tracing an image, map, photo, or even another digital screen.

The new technology that makes Liquid Crystal Paper possible is the new, patented Exact Erase feature that allows users to easily clear the screen with the touch of a button, or erase small and large portions, as if using a pencil and eraser.

Another reason to “write on” is the free app that makes it easy to save, organize, search, and share your work, doodles, designs, lists, notes and more. Unfortunately, deciphering your scribbles is something the Blackboard may not be able to help you with.

Writing is a technique that has been used through several millennia to teach, learn and communicate with one another. It just works. So why put yourself at risk for “mindless processing” when you can use a new technology that boasts 50 patents to help you boost memory and increase understanding of concepts and facts. Old fashioned? Hardly.

Find Blackboard at Amazon http://amzn.to/2AYKefU, or other retailers, including Staples, OfficeMax, Office Depot, Barnes & Noble, Fred Meyer, and more.

Technology News – 3D Printing Makes Safer, Stronger Airline Parts – Business – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – The aerospace industry is getting a boost in manufacturing its parts, making them safer and stronger, through a revolutionary new approach called 3D printing or “additive” manufacturing – a process which was invented at MIT in the late 1980s.

In the traditional method, companies start with a hunk of metal (or other material). Using milling machines and other tools, they cut or drill away material in order to create the desired part.

In contrast, 3D printing builds parts layer by layer, adding material in just the right places to create the precise shapes needed.

For aerospace companies, this 3D printing or “additive” manufacturing offers the promise of making parts that are better and stronger, enabling them to build airplanes and rockets that are safer, more reliable, and better performing. GE uses 3D printing to build jet engine fuel nozzles, for instance, instead of welding together 20 small pieces. Technology Review recently named additive manufacturing one of its 10 “Breakthrough Technologies.”

But this new industrial revolution is being held back by a thorny problem. Tiny variations in parameters like temperature or raw material composition can subtly alter how each layer of material is laid down. As a result, it is extraordinarily difficult to build identical top-quality parts every single time.

The industry has recognized this problem, and is working hard to solve it. The most promising approach is meticulously monitoring all the relevant parameters as a part is being built, then processing the information to determine if the part meets all standards. That will ensure repeatability, consistency, and reliability.

Several companies are working on this idea, but one leader is Santa Fe, NM-based Sigma Labs, Inc (NASDAQ:SGLB). Sigma has developed sophisticated software that monitors the 3D process as a part is being built, and determines whether the product meets quality standards. Its Process Quality Assurance™ software is now being used in pilot projects at major aerospace manufacturers.

Technology News – Aerospace Industry Uses 3D Printing to Make Parts Safer, Stronger – Business – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – A revolution is brewing in manufacturing, especially in high-tech industries such as aerospace.

That revolution is being made possible by a whole new approach to making things, called 3D printing or “additive” manufacturing, which was invented at MIT in the late 1980s.

Technology News – Florida Continues High-Tech Boom with Biotech Business – Business – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – If you’re in the biotech industry and wondering what state is first in class for medical device and pharmaceuticals manufacturing, as well as research and development (R&D) in this industry, the answer doesn’t lie in the west or the northeast. Florida is where you’ll find that leadership and expertise.

In fact, the state retains more than 325 biotechnology companies and R&D institutes that are creating some of the most exciting advancements in innovation and discovery, particularly through patents and clinical trials. The high-tech center of Florida rivals some of the greatest in the country and the work of these researchers is turning heads.

Companies such as: BioFlorida, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, the University of South Florida Research & Innovation, NSU Cell Therapy Institute, High-Tech Corridor, The Max Planck Institute, Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies, and Scripps Florida are working in the industry across the state.

The state’s biotechnology industry would not be the powerhouse that it is today without the help of Florida’s universities. The three public universities of the High-Tech Corridor, the University of Florida, University of South Florida and University of Central Florida, attract more than $230 million a year combined in research funding from National Institutions of Health.

Mark S. Long, Director of the University of Florida’s Sid Martin Biotech Institute -; which is a biotech business incubator that receives $750 million in research funding annually, and serves biotech start up companies by helping with legal issues, management, accounting and mentoring -; says there is a huge research enterprise in Florida, making the state appealing for biotech business.

“There are many factors that make Florida attractive,” Long says. “The weather, no state income tax and the commitment to education.”

He also says that the workforce is key for every company.

Nothing is more important to a company’s success than its workforce. More than 27,000 Floridians work in Florida’s biotechnology, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and medical device manufacturing industries, and the universities are among the nation’s top producers of STEM graduates, according to Enterprise Florida.

“Can I get the people I need to do this?” Long asks. “The answer is yes. There is a commitment here to education.”

The strength of Florida’s research universities make up the scope of Florida’s biotechnology industry. Between 2012 and 2015, nearly 5,000 bioscience-related patents were issued and more than $1 billion in R&D was conducted. As a result, solid job growth in this field has increased drastically as more biotech companies relocate to Florida to be closer to the advancements in medical innovation.

Florida’s life sciences industry continues to have a positive impacts on human well-being worldwide. The state has recruited acclaimed scientists and established expertise in critical areas of immuno-oncology, ophthalmology, cell therapy and regenerative medicine, marine biotechnology and neurodegenerative diseases.

“Across Florida, we are seeing multiple drivers of growth,” says Nancy Bryan, President & CEO of BioFlorida, the voice of Florida’s life sciences industry.

“Companies are choosing Florida to relocate, existing companies are expanding, universities and institutes are laying the framework for spinouts, and new and established incubators and accelerators are creating the right climate for growth.”

Technology News – Medical Device Protects Doctors, Nurses from Pathogens in Patient Fluids – Health – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – Every time a patient has surgery or any other procedures at a hospital, the hospital faces the challenge of disposing of all the blood, urine, and other fluids that result. These fluids can contain pathogens such as HIV or hepatitis, so they may be dangerous.

The traditional method for taking care of these fluids is suctioning them up into canisters. Once each canister is full, hospital workers cart them out of the operating room, open them up, and dump the fluid down the drain. The problem is that the workers can be exposed to the infectious agents in the fluid.

That’s what happened to Fran Hahn, now a nurse at Huntingdon Valley Surgery Center in Pennsylvania. When she was working at a different hospital, “I was changing a full suction canister-and contaminated fluid splashed in my eye,” she recalls. “The patient was HIV-positive, so I had to be tested for the next 18 months.” She wasn’t infected, but the ordeal was agonizing. “No one should have to go through that,” she says.

Now no one has to — ever again. Skyline Medical (NASDAQ:SKLN) has developed an automated system that suctions fluids from the patient directly to a unit mounted on the wall that’s hooked up to the sewer system. The fluids are put directly down the drain right in the operating or procedure room.

Huntingdon Valley Surgery Center found that the FDA-cleared STREAMWAY® System not only virtually eliminates the possibility that doctors, nurses, and other medical staffers will be exposed to pathogens; it also improves suction, helping doctors do better operations. “For facilities like ours, that take pride in providing the best patient care and keeping staff safe, STREAMWAY is such a logical choice,” says Hahn.

Moreover, hospitals such as the Tucson Medical Center (TMC) have learned that the system saves time and money as well. “We’re not spilling fluid or accidentally pulling the patient’s catheter out, because we aren’t having to stop and exchange bottles,” says Moravia Costanza, TMC Ultrasound Department Supervisor. “One of our radiologists said the STREAMWAY System is worth its weight in gold.”

Technology News – Solving A Major Problem in “Additive” Manufacturing – Business – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – A new approach to making everything from jet engines to toys, called 3D printing, is creating a revolution in manufacturing — and a small company called Sigma Labs, Inc (NASDAQ:SGLB) has an enabling technology that can make it happen.

In traditional manufacturing, companies start with metal or other materials, then cut, shape or drill the material to get the finished products.

In the late 1980s, however, researchers at MIT came up with a radical new idea. Instead of cutting material away, why not build things by adding layer after successive layer? The method they developed was similar to printing ink onto paper, only in three dimensions.

3D printing, also called “additive manufacturing,” is now becoming big business. GE Aviation uses it to build jet engine fuel nozzles, for instance, instead of welding together 20 small pieces. Technology Review recently named additive manufacturing one of its 10 “Breakthrough Technologies.”

But 3D printing turns out to have a major challenge: It’s extraordinarily difficult to build identical top-quality parts every single time. In fact, Sigma Labs has now solved this problem, ensuring that every part and product is built correctly.

How? The company uses sensors to measure key parameters such as the temperatures of the material as each layer is deposited. Then it uses sophisticated algorithms to process the data, and to determine if the resulting part meets customer quality standards.

“When we monitor every layer, for every part, we can tell if it’s a good part,” explains John Rice, CEO of Sigma Labs.

Sigma has installed its PrintRite 3D system at 3D manufacturing facilities for more than a dozen key companies, such as Siemens, Honeywell, Woodward, and Pratt & Whitney.

Rice envisions that, once the technology is proven in actual operations, Sigma’s patent-protected approach may fuel explosive growth in 3D printing, and become an essential part of 3D metal manufacturing operations, dreaming of “Sigma Inside,” such as Intel chips in personal computers.

“This has the potential to be a major transformative technology by enabling the leap to volume AM metal production,” says Rice.

Technology News – New Form of Farming Revolutionizes the Way We Eat – Business – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – By 2050, the world population will reach almost 10 billion people, at least 66 percent of whom will live in urban areas.

Water-scarcity issues are rampant and will only increase, and the ability to feed humanity is a vital issue that must be tackled now.

Thankfully, technological innovations are giving hope to addressing this catastrophic problem.

Texas-based Mouser Electronics created a program this year called Shaping Smarter Cities that features engineering marvels throughout the world that are helping solve humanity’s most pressing problems.

The company makes electronic components that engineers of any level can purchase online to make the projects of their dreams.

In this video, (http://bit.ly/2grhOWD) their celebrity spokesperson, Grant Imahara, visits Tokyo, Japan, where more people live than in the entire state of Illinois — too many mouths to feed for traditional farming to take on alone. The city presents an ideal testing ground for vertical/urban farming.

Mouser shows how a vertical farming facility can efficiently provide fresh food for the densely populated city.

The food produced there yields 50-100 times more per square meter than traditional farming. And the indoor setting allows for almost complete control of weather conditions and temperature. Even the water gets recycled to reduce the drain on resources. The end result? Up to 99 percent in water savings.

This video is one of many in Mouser’s Empowering Innovation Together initiative.

Since its creation last year, incredible engineering feats have been spearheaded through their electronic components partners — with projects ranging from bringing superhero technology to life to 3D printing a semi-autonomous car with drone technology.

The focus of this year’s program is about solving tough problems that impact humanity as a whole.

Technology News – Stem Cells, Biologics Could Be Answer to Next Generation Therapies – Health

(NewsUSA) – Sponsored News – Biotech stocks tend to have their ups and downs among the investment community. However, the biotech industry is enjoying a shot in the arm with news of biologics flooding the wires.

Biologics, say experts, are different from traditional drugs because they are manufactured in a living system, such as a microorganism or plant or animal cells, rather than with synthesized chemicals. And because of the strides made in this biotechnology specialty, it is attracting the attention of the pharma big boys.

All the major players are looking to capture their share of a market that IMS Health analysts estimate will rise to $390 billion by 2020. In short, if the analysts are right, biologics will command nearly one-third of all spending on drugs in the next few years. Couple this with a marketing plan to the public that underscores biologics as natural derivatives instead of man-made, and it’s easy to see why so much money is being poured into this area.

With patent expirations drawing near, and companies looking to get a leg up on their competition, big pharma will be looking to boutique firms in this space to get an edge on next-generation therapies.

Enter Endonovo Therapeutics (OTCQB: ENDV), a biotechnology company that is developing a bioelectronic approach to regenerative medicine through its premier platform, Cytotronics. While most biologics are formed using recombinant DNA technology, “Endonovo is falling back on its technology, which dates back to research at NASA seeking to develop stem cells and medical devices to treat potential injuries that astronauts might encounter during long term missions in outer space.” In this way, the company is using Time-Varying Electromagnetic Field (TVEMF) technology to increase the therapeutic properties of stem cells. This, says the company, is accomplished through stimulation of magnetically induced electrical field pathways of cells and tissues.

Endonovo CEO Alan Collier describes the technology as “effectively training cells to secrete therapeutic proteins.” The secreted proteins can include those commonly used in biologics, such as G-CSF (granulocyte-colony stimulating factor), GM-CSF (granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor), erythropoietin and interleukins that are used in angiogenesis, antigentargeting, promoting white blood cell growth to fight infections, and more.

Endonovo’s mission is two-fold: to validate the potential of injecting “enhanced” or “trained” stem cells, but also to deliver a cocktail of therapeutic proteins that could exert their influence over inflammation while promoting tissue healing.

Technology News – Four Tech Tools That Can Help Your Small Business Grow – Business

(NewsUSA)http://www.newsusa.com/ – Fifty-four years ago, President John F. Kennedy signed into effect a proclamation that established a week to celebrate the contributions of small U.S. businesses. Every president since then has continued the tradition.

Next month kicks off National Small Business Week, which recognizes America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. This year it runs from April 30 to May 6. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.

To help celebrate the week, Marc Saltzman, business technology expert, has partnered with KillerApps.tv (Click here to view video.) and four brands that have the tech tools and services to help small businesses grow by boosting productivity in the office or on the go.

First up, mobility. BlackBerry is back with the BlackBerry KEYone, an award-winning smartphone that fuses the functionality and security you’d expect from a BlackBerry with the familiarity and versatility of Android 7.1 Nougat. This BlackBerry KEYone is made for the modern smartphone user, offering a reimagined Smart Keyboard with built-in fingerprint sensor, up to 26 hours of mixed-use battery life, and unique convenience and privacy features in what is being billed as the world’s most secure Android smartphone.

It also has 4.5-inch touch display to tap and swipe through more than a million apps at the Google Play store.

It goes on sale in May.

To help keep your data secure on the go, Kingston has a pair of encrypted USB flash-drive solutions. With the DataTraveler 2000, no one can see what’s stored on the drive without knowing the PIN that you type on the alphanumeric keypad. The hardware-based encryption resides on the USB 3.0 drive itself — not on the host computer. It’s water- and dust-proof and available in 16, 32 and 64 gigabytes. And then there’s the DataTraveler Vault Privacy drive, which you access via password instead of keypad. Get the password wrong ten times and it’ll reformat and wipe it clean, just in case you lose it. It’s available from 4GB and up.

Next up, regardless of the industry you’re in, you need a reliable multifunction printer to work faster, smarter, and more cost effectively. The Canon MAXIFY MB5420 Wireless All-In-One Printer empowers small businesses with a high-speed, high-quality, and cost-effective printer, scanner and copier.

Technology News – Sunshine State Shining New Light on the Banking Industry – Business

(NewsUSA) – Florida is becoming the modern-day Wall Street for many international and U.S. banking companies. Today there are 141 commercial banks in Florida with more than $140 billion in assets, and 18 international banking conglomerates who have their U.S. headquarters in the state.

The high cost of doing business in places such as New York and Chicago are no longer a necessity to succeed. From Jacksonville to Miami, Florida has established itself as a powerful resource in the industry that cannot be overlooked.

Part of a Wall Street trend known as nearshoring, banks are moving operations away from expensive financial centers to more affordable and business-friendly locations.

Companies like Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, JPMorgan, Banco Santander International, Banco do Brasil and Citigroup have engaged in this practice setting up substantial operations in Florida.

The Sunshine State has developed as a bridge for business to Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe with a highly-skilled, young workforce, who understand the culture, appealing quality of life and supportive local governments that encourage and accommodate new business growth.

“In Florida, it’s the access to these resources that make the difference,” says Hernan Mayol, chairman of the Florida International Bankers Association, a non-profit association that provides comprehensive support to the global financial services industry.

“When banks need lawyers and accountants with targeted expertise, the infrastructure is here. We don’t have to be in New York or Chicago for these resources. Florida has built them from the ground up through our state’s excellent higher education facilities and training programs.”

Mayol also believes the mantra, “if you build it, they will come,” is alive and well in Florida.

And they are coming. Millennials are a driving factor in the state’s transformation and appeal for the banking industry. The young workforce in Florida expect to live in places that are more convenient and have a better quality of life, inexpensive cost of living, entertainment opportunities and work flexibility, Mayol says.

Anthony Glenn, head of the Jacksonville office of Macquarie Group, an Australian-based global provider of financial, advisory, investment and funds management services, agrees.

Macquarie has invested more than $3 million in their downtown Jacksonville location. The office has an open floor-plan concept, modern space that promotes collaboration and creativity and state-of-the-art technology -; all the elements millennials are requesting.

“The main thing we’ve looked for is the talent pool to pull from and expandable growth,” Glenn says. “Plus, the local government is very supportive and understands the market. Florida provides for a positive change from more traditional financial markets, and it has been a rewarding investment.”

Glenn says he is committed to 100 new jobs in the first year, and has plans for expansion in Jacksonville.

“The first year has been a success. It’s not just about delivery: it’s about collaboration, diversity and balance — qualities and a lifestyle one doesn’t have to travel north to experience.”

Technology News – Natural Stone: Discovering New Forms of Art – Environment – #Technology #News

(NewsUSA) – Art can take on many different shapes and sizes in a variety of media. From watercolor paintings and bronze sculptures to still-life photographs and wood carvings, art can become the focal point of any interior living space. But, what if art could become part of a home’s architecture in unexpected ways? The answer is yes, it can, and it comes in the form of natural stone.

Perhaps it’s the allure of the exotic location from which it originated, or an unusual texture or uncommon color — representing that single event in time illustrating when and how the stone was created. Whether it’s a rare stone that is one in a million or one that was uncovered from the depths of the earth, natural stone can truly make a beautiful and exotic piece of art.

“Mother nature definitely has defined and shared her art with us through her supply of natural stone,” says Tom Harty, director of procurement at Stone Source, a company that specializes in curating natural stone and a member of MIA + BSI: The Natural Stone Institute. “The beautiful and creative veining found in natural stone is like a painting on a canvas.”

Whether natural stone is used to draw attention to a fireplace design, or is carefully selected as a standout countertop in a bathroom, the ways in which it can be used are endless. Some homeowners even enjoy mounting stone slabs on interior walls as pieces of art.

Chris Schulte, president of Las Vegas Rock, Inc., a quarry that concentrates on extracting metaquartzite stone and also a member of MIA + BSI, explains that the company’s “rainbow gardens” offer a multitude of natural stone colors ranging from purples and reds to yellows and browns. Some of these stones are so beautiful, they can stand alone as art. “We have many customers who have purchased slabs as wall art,” he says. “In fact, in the cities of Henderson, Nevada and Las Vegas, government buildings have slabs of metaquartzite displayed on the walls.”

Onyx is another type of exotic natural stone that can be used in artful ways. “The translucent character of many onyxes lends them to be backlit and incorporated as decorative pieces,” says Harty. In fact, popular uses of onyx include bar backsplashes, built-in wall cabinets, bathroom countertops, staircases, and fireplaces.

Those who find beauty in nature might see natural stone as more than just another building material; they see it as a unique piece of fine art. For more information about natural stone, visit www.usenaturalstone.com.

Technology News – Forget Politics! Together We Can Save Our Climate!

Heavy Construction News


Five words or less(NewsUSA) – One day before President Donald Trump announced his decision to pull the USA out of the Paris Agreement, Climeworks, an innovative Swiss startup, launched the world’s first commercial carbon capture plant in Hinwil, Switzerland.
The plant, which filters carbon dioxide directly out of the air, offers a solution in the fight against climate change. Climeworks, which invented and developed a novel CO2 filtering material, aims to remove 1 percent of CO2 global emissions from the air by 2025.
business campaigning Ltd., a Swiss campaigning firm with the motto “meaningful campaigns for meaningful ideas” was “dismayed by Trump’s decision, but buoyed with hope after seeing the launch of this potentially climate-saving technology,” made the decision to launch the Planet First campaign to remove 100 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere and store it safely underground.
The business campaigning team believe that technology now enables ordinary people to collectively make a difference in the fight against climate change, no longer needing to rely on governments to fight it on their behalf.
The filtered CO2 can either be stored safely underground, used as a raw material in the food and beverage industry, or to manufacture carbon-neutral synthetic fuels, which can be used in the auto industry.
The Planet First campaign will fund the removal of 100 tons of CO2 from the air in support of Climeworks’ goal in the fight against climate change.
“We want to make a mark with this campaign. Through technologies, such as Climeworks,’climate protection can become a viable business model,” explains business campaigning Ltd., owner and CEO Peter Metzinger.
“The filter plants in Switzerland can evolve into a global export industry and create a new economic sector — the circular carbon economy. Startups and companies can deliver decisive impetus to truly sustainable climate protection, utilizing CO2 as a raw material and reducing the reliance on fossil fuels. This is how we can fight climate change,” says Metzinger.
The Planet First crowdfunding page is www.wemakeit.com/projects/let-s-remove-100-tons-co2.

Technology News – Take Control of Your Personal Finances with New Express Bill Pay – Money

(NewsUSA) – We all work hard for our money, which in turn is divided up to pay our bills. That’s how it works. But with the added stress of managing daily life, managing bill payment can often be overwhelming and sometimes get overlooked. It can be hard to keep track of what’s due and when; never mind those bills that have fallen through the cracks and are late.

Here are some tips to help, according to finance experts:

* Learn Self-Control — Learn the fine art of delay gratification, and you’ll soon find it easy to keep your finances in order. Although you can effortlessly purchase an item on credit the minute you want it, it’s better to wait until you’ve actually saved up the money. In this way, you may even be able to get a deal by paying cash at the outset.

* Take Control of Your Own Financial Future — Find a personal finance app. It is an essential component for managing modern life. Personal finance apps help remind you to pay bills, keep an eye on account balances, and stay within budgets — things we need to do daily and for which we often need reminders. For example, Express Canada recently launched a free, web-based application that will offer a more improved approach to users’ cash flow management and regular bill payment, which will invariably improve the credit rating with service providers. Payment for bills are made directly from XBP International to service providers by a click of a button. Users receive regular reminders for upcoming and overdue bills through email notifications, which improve regular bill paying habits. Users can also easily track and reconcile accounts with services providers.

* Know Where Your Money Goes — It is extremely important to make sure your expenses aren’t exceeding your income. The best way to do this is by budgeting. In addition, keeping your recurring monthly expenses as low as possible will also save you big bucks over time.

“Plan Bill Payment” from XBP International is a perfect solution, developed by Express Canada (Ca) Corp., a Canadian corporation with a specialty in developing financing and business solutions for individuals, corporate and government. XBP International provides users with a schedule of the cash amount needed for the next 30 days. This enables users to coordinate paycheck or available cash with bill payment schedules — a great financial planning tool.

* Start an Emergency Fund – Having money in savings to use for emergencies can keep you out of trouble financially and help you sleep better at night — especially when those large life events occur. Also, if you get into the habit of saving money and treating it as a non-negotiable monthly “expense,” pretty soon you’ll have more than just emergency money saved up.

Banking and managing money keep getting easier. All the financial capabilities are a far cry from the pre-Internet days, when tracking expenses involved saving receipts, opening paper bills, and writing down every time you gave someone a fistful of cash.
