“Fuller House” is about to become more full with the renewal of season two. This Netflix revival series is a spin-off of the original “Full House”. It took 20 years to make this revival series possible but once it launched, it took only less than a week for the renewal of season two to be determined.
The current season of “Fuller House” is centered around the Tanner siblings. In this season since Mary- Kate and Ashley Olsen who portrayed the character of Michelle have not signed on, their neighbor Kimmy Gibbler has replaced her. But that is not to say that Michelle will not return for season two. The Tanner siblings are all grown up and facing many different situations including DJ becoming a widow and raising three sons, Kimmy`s crazy roller coaster life including romance and divorce. And also including Stephanie and her pursuit to start a career as a DJ and singer while being one of the most entertaining aunts.
The way that season one leaves off is with open- ended episodes and several cliffhangers, which is the perfect way to introduce season two. It is time for `90s fans to rejoice as your favorite family is back for another season full of puns, comical moments and the craziness of the Tanner household.

These new flavors belong to the “Core” series. Which take ice cream to the next level by having a center made of pure deliciousness. If you’re not familiar, it is usually caramel or fudge or whatever best pairs with the ice cream flavor.

How would you feel if your iPhone was unlocked? It would probably make you feel like your privacy was invaded. But would you feel differently if the protection of privacy rights were revoked due to the safety of the general public? This is currently one of the issues occurring between Apple and the United States government. This debate has occurred on other occasions but is being brought to the service one more time. This time in response to the San Bernardino families request. The incident that occurred in California was at the Inland Regional Center on December 2nd, 2015. At this time there was an office party going on and 14 people were killed due to a terror attack involving the spraying of gunfire. Mark Sandefeur is one of the victim`s father and he is not giving in on this ongoing battle.
There are many ways to look at this issue but what it comes down to is, the decision to unlock a deceased terrorists phone or keep it locked due to privacy laws. One way of looking at this current issue is that there may be content in the phone that can lead to new information such as contacts and even other planned events. “Recovery of information from the iPhone in question may not lead to anything new. But, what if there is evidence pointing to a third shooter? What if it leads to an unknown terrorist cell?” This was stated by Sandefur in a letter to Apple’s chief executive. Mark Sandefeur is not the only one acting against this issue, there has been several attempts at getting the FBI to join with Apple to prevent these tragedies. Since this is such an in-depth issue, this debate is still on going.
The other way that this is being looked at is if this phone is unlocked then where does it stop? Since it is technically an invasion of privacy, once it is done once then who knows where it will stop.
Although both sides have several valid points, what side do you take? How would you feel if your phone was invaded? Or do you feel it is different since it is a safety issue?

It’s that time of year where coffee becomes a little more than necessary in the morning. That is because it is time to spring forward. Sunday, March 13th marks the first day of Daylight Savings. For some people this could be seen as just a loss of sleep but for others it is a sign that sunny and longer days are finally here.
The saying “Spring forward, fall back” is an old expression used to remind people to adjust your clocks. Although making sure you get up in time in the morning is important, there are also several necessary tasks to ensure a safe and happy spring and summer season. This could be looked at as a safety spring cleaning. Here are some necessary things to check off of your safety spring cleaning list. The first thing you should do is check to make sure there is a functioning fire detector and carbon dioxide detector in each room of your house. If you know there are any detectors that are over ten years old, then it’s time for new ones. After inserting fresh batteries check your alarm by activating the safety test button. Now that the alarms are all checked, it is time to clean your alarms. This can be done by gently using a vacuum cleaner to remove any dust and cobwebs. Because what use is a working alarm if you can’t hear it. Lastly, you should make an escape plan and review it with your entire family. It is a good idea to get everyone involved including the kids. After you have made your plan, make sure you have all functioning emergency supplies put together in several locations of your home. A good idea would be to create a backpack filled with flashlights, batteries and other items you feel are necessary. Once you have an action plan set, it’s time to test it out. Make sure everything is set and everyone is aware of the plan in case of an unfortunate tragedy.
Now that you know the importance of this safety spring cleaning list, it is time to put it into action. Whether you’re enjoying your cup of coffee with an extra shot of espresso or enjoying the outdoors, it is always best to put safety first and protect your home and family.
