Protect Yourself While Traveling To and From the U.S.
San Francisco – Increasingly frequent and invasive searches at the U.S. border have raised questions for those of us who want to protect the private data on our computers, phones, and other digital devices. A new guide released today by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) gives travelers the facts they need in order to prepare for border crossings while protecting their digital information.
“Digital Privacy at the U.S. Border” helps everyone do a risk assessment, evaluating personal factors like immigration status, travel history, and the sensitivity of the data you are carrying. Depending on which devices come with you on your trip, your gadgets can include information like your client files for work, your political leanings and those of your friends, and even your tax return. Assessing your risk factors helps you choose a path to proactively protect yourself, which might mean leaving some devices at home, moving some information off of your devices and into the cloud, and using encryption. EFF’s guide also explains why some protections, like fingerprint locking of a phone, are less secure than other methods.

These wheel chairs look pretty cool. I just had to share this on my website.
Tankchair and Speedster were created by a combat veteran of two theaters of combat to assist his wife’s mobility after her injury. Tankchair is designed for outdoor activities, while Speedster is designed for urban and indoor use. That loving gesture has evolved into a company that now provides greatly improved chairs to people in similar conditions around the world. Tankchair is an extremely capable machine that will allow those that need mobility assistance to personally experience the outdoors again. Speedster enables the user to get off the sidewalk and back onto the road. Both Tankchair and Speedster are proudly made in USA.
