Netgear’s New Router Gives Secure Access To Corporate Networks For Home Workers

Now that so many of us are working from home, businesses are rightly worried about network security and data privacy. How can a business secure a worker’s internet connection without installing a second broadband connection?

One answer could be to install a secure router to the home broadband router and have that device reserved solely for business use. If the device could also have rock-solid VPN implementation, secure connection, plus remote management, that would be an affordable solution.

Networking giant Netgear is already on the case with a brand new and affordable router aimed at home workers. The new BR200 Netgear Insight Managed Business Router enables a worker at home or working from

Welcoming autumn with pecan pies

It is the first day of autumn! Our gardens are cleared out, being tilled, and are history for 2020! We had a frost Saturday morning that put an end to them. We have lots of tomatoes and peppers that I want to use to make spicy vegetable juice. A lot of people covered their plants to avoid the frost, but we didn’t take the time to do that. We are thankful for the harvest we did get, though. Next week we will be going to the u-pick orchard to pick grapes for grape juice. We ran out of grape juice this year, so I want to can more this year than I did last year.

Saturday morning was chilly for the local consignment auction but ended up being pretty warm by the end of the day. I made pecan pies

Bennett Walsh, 50, the former superintendent, and Dr. David Clinton, 71, were indicted Thursday on 10 criminal neglect charges each, Healey’s office said. They’ll be arraigned in Hampden Superior Court at a later date. Neither man has been taken into custody.

With Over-Extended Supply Chains Leading to Sky-High Furniture Costs, Can 3D Printing Save the Industry?

By Phillip Raub, CEO of Model No.

After months (and months) of confinement, there is a growing trend of city dwellers leaving the likes of New York and San Francisco for less expensive and greener pastures. As urbanites head for smaller markets, the ‘burbs and farms, the one need each of them will have is for more furniture. As a result, the furniture industry is slated to grow by almost 30% by 2027 ($650B).

While traditional industry players will surely benefit from this growth, it also presents an opportunity to radically change an industry that has failed to embrace more automated and sustainable manufacturing processes.

In the same way that you can easily build the car of your dreams or customize a pair of Nike shoes online, customers are looking for a similar method to order a desk for their makeshift office or a kitchen table that doubles as a

79-year-old dies after Beulaville explosion: NC officials

An explosion tore through a North Carolina house, killing a 79-year-old man, officials say.

Lon Record, the only person home at the time of the blast, was airlifted to a burn center in critical condition on Wednesday, a Duplin County spokesperson told McClatchy News. Record later died.

At least 17 animals, including dogs and cats, were inside the home when it exploded, said Elizabeth Stalls, public information officer for Duplin County.

Though news outlets had previously reported that five animals died, officials now say two pets originally presumed dead were later found. Three other missing animals are believed to be alive.

In a post that didn’t directly mention the explosion, Duplin County Animal Services on Wednesday posted photos of injured animals that were getting treatment.

“Due to an unexpected tragedy at a local home in Duplin County, we have received numerous animals,” the post said, “many with medical emergencies incurred

Conroe moves forward with $320K drainage study

The city of Conroe is moving forward with a study of Alligator Creek to determine the next steps on improving the drainage on the waterway that winds through downtown Conroe.

On Thursday, the council approved a $320,265 contract with Conroe-based Halff Associates Inc. to create a master drainage plan, focused on Alligator Creek, with the goal to provide prioritized needs and improvements and to help facilitate grant funding that is available.

“With this plan, we can apply for grant fund that we could not before because we did not have a master plan,” said Tommy Woolley, director of capital improvements and transportation.

According to information provided by Halff officials to the city, the plan will focus on projects to reduce the flood risk for all major watersheds within the city limits, specifically Alligator Creek. The other watersheds included will be West Fork of the San Jacinto River, White Oak Creek,

Bedroom Ideas For A Relaxing And Tranquil Space – Bedroom Decor Ideas

Photographed by Maria del Rio.

No matter what you do in between, your bedroom is where you begin and end every single day. It’s your sanctuary — or it should be, anyway — and that’s why it’s so important to make it yours. Luckily, there are countless stylish bedroom design ideas that’ll help you do just that. Before you start tossing out furniture and knocking down walls, however, you might want to figure out which design plans are realistic for your particular space, budget, and abilities. 

Ultimately, when you’re redoing a room, you can break down your design plans into three categories: decorative, aesthetic, and structural. All of them have the potential to transform a room, but some are more dramatic (and more expensive) than others. 

We’ll start with decorative, since it’s typically the most accessible category. These are the changes that you can tackle in a single day, since
