that smartphone sharp

14, 2010 - When is the last time you willingly went a full day without
your smartphone? If you can't remember, you're not alone. It's hard
to imagine functioning without these Swiss Army Knife-like devices.
Just leave yours home one day and see how dependent you've really
attached to your smartphone? Join the club: 65 percent of small
businesses in a recent AT&T survey said they could not survive
-- or it would be a major challenge to survive - without wireless
technology. And the Gartner Group estimates that 172 million smartphones
were sold worldwide last year, up 24 percent from 2008.
as they are, these mini computers can sometimes act up. Here are
four major areas of frustration, and ways to combat them:
Problems: Blame dropped calls and unavailability on overloaded
networks. As smartphones become more and more popular, expect
the interference to grow. Sometimes a good temporary solution
is to turn off your connection to the often-overwhelmed 3G network
and utilize the older, lesser-used one. Think of it as taking
a back road instead of inching along a congested highway.
Life: With endless emailing, gaming, internet usage, music,
GPS and other energy drains, batteries struggle to keep up. The
best way to keep from quickly running low is to turn off extra
features such as WiFi and Bluetooth. Another option is to have
a charger handy away from home.
give it a rest. Just like people, phones can't
run forever without a rest. Most users go for weeks without turning
off or resetting their phone and then wonder why it's not as fast
as it used to be. Turn your device off every couple of days for
at least two minutes to let it clear its system and return to
Cracks: No matter how careful you are, cracks and blemishes
are almost guaranteed. But you can take precautions. Heavy-duty
protection cases like Otterbox offer peace of mind and come with
a lifetime guarantee. If
the crack affects your phone's functionality, call the experts.
Not a day goes by that somebody doesn't walk into one of our stores
with a plastic bag filled with parts. We call it the "I know
a guy" problem: They knew a guy who said he could fix it,
and now it's worse. Bottom line: If you're not the kind of person
who'd tear open your own laptop, you probably shouldn't be opening
up your smartphone.
the final analysis, smartphones have become an important tool in
our business and social lives. And just like any other tool, they
benefit from occasional maintenance and TLC.

start squirreling away some nuts
By ANN THRASH, contributing editor
14, 2010 - Squirrels have become an obsession for our Jack Russell
terrier, Indigo. He stalks them relentlessly in our backyard, barking
at them as they skitter between tree branches high over his head.
He's never caught one, thank goodness, but I know he dreams about
it -- I see him having those vivid doggie dreams, the kind where
his feet are twitching and he's huffing and growling under his breath.
good news is that Indigo will probably never catch a squirrel because
he can't climb trees (darn the lack of opposable thumbs!). Another
piece of good news is that Indigo can't read -- so he won't see
this column and learn that I have something in common with his nemesis:
a need to hoard pecans.
Yes, like the squirrels that torment my beloved four-legged child,
I always find myself thinking about stashing away some pecans this
time of year. This all started about a dozen years ago when it came
to my attention that South Carolina is one of the nation's top pecan-growing
states. That means you don't have settle for those dried-up, mealy,
wrinkly, shrunken-midget pecans you see in the big-name-brand bags
at the grocery store; you can rely instead on one of several almost-local
sources for ultra-fresh, meaty, delicious S.C.-grown pecans.
Palmetto State company whose products I have the most experience
with is Golden Kernel, a longtime, family-owned grower located in
Cameron, not too far from Orangeburg. In the late 1990s, when I
was the food editor at The Post and Courier, I took a road trip
there and did a story about the company, and ever since then not
a year has gone by that I haven't bought pecans from the company
in bulk. The nuts freeze really well - I've kept them that way for
as long as a year, and some people say they'll keep twice as long
- so I always invest in a hearty supply as soon as the first of
the new crop comes in, typically around the first of November.
Kernel sells pecans online or at their retail shop in Cameron,
which is just a few miles off Interstate 26. I've also seen the
Golden Kernel brand at Lowcountry Piggly Wiggly stores.
other South Carolina companies that I hear good things about are
Pecan Company, located in Orangeburg, naturally, and Young
Plantation Pecans in Florence. Both companies sell online, and
Young Plantation also has a seasonal retail outlet in the Lowcountry.
It's at the Shoppes at Seaside Farms, near the Isle of Palms Connector
in Mount Pleasant, and is usually open in November and December.
of my favorite things to do with the kind of top-notch pecans that
these companies offer is to roast them very simply, just with salt
and butter -- nothing else. Try this method with a bag or two of
Golden Kernel, Young Plantation or Orangeburg Pecan Company nuts,
and I guarantee you'll start buying pecans in bulk like I do.
can vary the amount of butter here according to your taste. If you're
feeling indulgent, use a premium butter, such as Plugra, for an
extra wow. My favorite pecans to use in this recipe are what the
nut companies call "mammoth halves" - -and they ain't
kiddin' about the "mammoth" part: These are big, "whole"
halves (meaning there are no broken or chopped-up pieces).
cups pecan halves
½ to 1 stick butter
Salt, to taste
the oven to 325 degrees. Spread the nuts in a single layer on
a large, flat pan, such as a cookie sheet. Cut ½ stick
of butter into small chunks and scatter them evenly on top of
the nuts. Place the pan in the oven on a middle rack. After 10
minutes, remove the pan and stir the nuts so the butter (which
will have melted) coats them all. Sprinkle salt over the nuts
and return the pan to the oven. After 6 minutes, remove the pan,
stir the nuts, and add more butter and/or salt as desired. Return
the pan to the oven and roast the nuts for 6 minutes more. Remove
the pan once again, stir, and taste one of the pecans; add more
butter and/or salt if needed. Roast the nuts one more time, for
6 minutes, then remove the pan from the oven and turn the nuts
onto paper towels to cool completely. Transfer to an airtight
container to store. Makes 4 cups.

brought economic growth, cheap electricity
Manning Jefferies was born at Star Farm, Union County (later Cherokee
County) on Feb. 27, 1888. After graduating from the University of
South Carolina in 1910, he moved to Ridgeland, where he read law.
After his marriage and his admission to the bar in December 1912,
Jefferies moved to Walterboro. He served Colleton County as master
in equity, and in 1918 was elected probate judge. In 1926 he was
elected to his first term in the state Senate. Over the next thirty-two
years, he won seven more terms.
the S.C. Senate, Jefferies quickly attained power and influence.
He became part of the loose coalition of fiscally conservative Lowcountry
legislators known as the "Barnwell Ring." He rose to become
state Senate president pro tempore and chairman of the powerful
Finance Committee in 1941. However, he would not remain long in
either of these positions. When Governor Burnet R. Maybank was elected
to the U.S. Senate in November 1941 and Lieutenant Governor Joseph
E. Harley died the next February, Jefferies succeeded to the governorship
on March 2, 1942.
his eleven months as governor, Jefferies guided the state through
economic and racial upheavals during World War II. He worked to
earn federal military contracts for the state and encouraged industrial
development. He appointed the Preparedness for Peace Commission
in the fall of 1942, charging it with planning a transition from
a war-time to a peace-time economy. This proved to be a farsighted
decision, for the commission recommended creating the modern State
Development Board and proposed other reforms in state government.
Jefferies did not seek a term as governor in his own right. Instead
he ran for and won his old state Senate seat from Colleton County,
which had remained vacant. Having lost his seniority when he became
governor, he did not resume any of his leadership posts.
was closely involved with the growth of Santee Cooper, the South
Carolina Public Service Authority. He was the principal author of
the 1934 act creating the authority, and he served as its general
counsel until becoming governor. After leaving that office, he became
the general manager of the authority. Under his leadership, Santee
Cooper became one of the leading supporters of economic development
in the Lowcountry, providing cheap power to new industry and rural

cancer confidence boosters
Moore is a nationally-recognized Charleston makeup artist. More.
When I heard
the news I had breast cancer at the age of 36, I was devastated.
I didn't have any history of breast cancer in my family and was
enjoying a busy life as a self-employed makeup artist and mom of
two. I made the conscious decision that even though I had breast
cancer, it didn't have me so even on my darkest days when going
to chemotherapy I tried to make it the best day I could.
5 Ways to Boost
Your Confidence While You're Kickin' It (literally) in Chemo:
for Success: Success of treatment, that is. Some people rolled
up in their pajamas and tracksuits, which was comfortable for
them. However, what made me comfortable was the fact that fighting
cancer wasn't going to change who I was as a person. I often wore
my favorite jeans, cute boots, and a sassy top - mainly because
it was easy port access. Sometimes, I wore kitten heels and fuchsia
pink lipstick like I would on any given normal day! A fun new
scarf or hat every round didn't hurt either.
a "drip date:"
Ask a friend or family member to join you during your day-long
treatment. You'd be surprised how many will say yes! It got to
the point where I had friends and family fighting to take me to
treatment, which made me feel very blessed and gave me even more
strength to fight. I got "asked out" more throughout
treatment than I did in high school. To date it has been some
of the best quality time spent with these dear people, the fact
that they took time out of their busy lives to take me on an eight-hour
date every Monday - that time together bonds you for life.
for yourself and be prepared: Most
of your actual treatment days will be hazy due to your chemo cocktail
infusion, so I came in armed with questions, a notebook, and all
of the research I felt related to me. I had my questions right
in front of me and during my time with the physician, my handy
"drip date" took notes. Days later when I was feeling
better and out of my chemo fog, I could look back at what notes
had been taken. Knowledge=Power= Confidence
I know that sounds impossible when you're fighting cancer. I took
it very seriously but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun
along the way. I would wear funny wigs or funny T-shirts, my favorite
was "My Oncologist is My Homeboy." Add a little humor
and you'd be surprised at all the smiles around you.
Even if I was dreading going to treatment the night before, as
I often was, I got up the morning of treatment and said to myself,
"Do you know how lucky you are to even be able to do this?"
The option of treatment is a blessing. My attitude was that there
were many people sitting right next to me that had it worse, some
people will be in treatment much longer. My attitude, for the
most part, was spunky and if I was taking NO prisoners, than neither
was cancer. If you don't have an attitude, then you better get
