    5 Tips to Prepare Your Android Phone for Emergencies With everything your phone can do, have you ever thought about how you could use it in an emergency? From finding your way home to getting medical help, it’s wise to set up your device so it’s better prepared for emergencies. Here are vital tips and apps you can use to prepare your Android phone for urgent situations. 1. Enable Lockdown Mode One of the new features of Android Pie that Google added is a handy security feature called Lockdown. With it, you can instantly switch off a few settings that could make your personal data vulnerable to unauthorized access. When enabled, the Lockdown mode disables fingerprint authentication. This prevents intruders or law enforcement officials from forcing you to unlock your phone, plus hides notifications on the lock screen. In addition, it turns off Smart Lock, a convenience feature which unlocks your phone when in the vicinity of another configured device or location. The only way to bring your phone out of Lockdown is to manually enter your password or PIN. However, the tool is not turned by default, so you need to activate it. To do that, go to Settings, scroll down till you find Security & location, and there, tap Lock Screen Preferences. Enable Show lockdown option and you’re set. You’ll find the option to put your phone in Lockdown mode on the same menu that lets you turn it off; just press and hold the power button. While placing your phone in lockdown won’t ensure your data is entirely secure, it’s a quick way to establish a wall against anyone who may attempt to access your phone through coercion. 2. Update Your Emergency Information To let paramedics (or other people) know your emergency information and contacts, Android comes with a native utility that places those details on the lock screen. Of course, you need to first add the necessary data into it. 3. Enable Emergency Alerts Whenever there’s a potential new threat in your area, Android can send you government-distributed public broadcasts. Though generally your phone is set to receive them by default, you should make sure of it. You’ll find this option under Settings/Apps & Notifications/Advanced/Emergency Alerts. Here, you can pick which types of alerts you’d like to stay updated about and choose if you want your phone to vibrate for them. Plus, Android can automatically raise the volume when there’s a new broadcast and dictate the message using text-to-speech. These settings are optional, but we would recommend keeping them switched on if you don’t want to miss anything. 4. Use the Built-In SOS Shortcut In some regions and on some devices, Android has an SOS shortcut. When you trigger it, your phone automatically transmits a distress signal and your location to local emergency services. In case your phone’s mobile data or location isn’t turned on, tapping the SOS shortcut will force them to enable. This method will differ depending on where you live and your phone. On my Pixel 3 with stock Android in India, for instance, the option is present in the long-press power menu. But this isn’t the case for a Pixel 3 in the US. Samsung phones have a more advanced solution. It informs your emergency contacts with your location, an audio recording, and even pictures. Find it under Settings Advanced features Send SOS messages. 5. Try the Medical ID App If you feel Android’s native emergency information feature is too limited and not easily visible on your lock screen, try a third-party app called Medical ID. Medical ID leaves your health data right on the lock screen as a persistent notification. You can also add much more data on it, like your height, weight, birth date, and more. On top of that, long-pressing the Medical ID notification allows you to instantly call emergency services.

    Sports Repairman Three women were sitting around and bragging about their children. The first one says, "You know, my son, he graduated first in his class from Oxford. He's now a doctor, making $250,000 a year in Chicago." The second woman says, "You know my son, he graduated first in his class from Cambridge. He's now a lawyer, making half a million dollars a year and he lives in Los Angeles." The last woman says, "You know my son, he never did too well in school. He never went to any university but he now makes one million pounds a year in London working as a sports repairman." The other two women ask, "What is a sports repairman?" The woman then replies: "He fixes things... you know, hockey games, football games, snooker games..."

    Pass It On My husband, Michael, and I were at a restaurant with his boss, a rather stern older man. When Michael began a tale, which I was sure he had told before, I gave him a kick under the table. There was no response, so I gave him another poke. Still the story went on. Suddenly he stopped, grinned and said, "Oh, but I've told you this one before, haven't I?" We all chuckled and changed the subject. Later, on the dance floor, I asked my husband why it had taken him so long to get my message. "What do you mean?" he replied. "I cut the story off as soon as you kicked me." "But I kicked you twice and it still took you awhile to stop!" Suddenly we realized what had happened. Sheepishly we returned to our table. The boss smiled and said: "Don't worry. After the second one I figured it wasn't for me, so I passed it along!"

    Head On Accident A police officer was investigating an accident on a two-lane, narrow road in which the drivers had hit virtually head-on. One driver, an extremely elderly woman, kept repeating, "He wouldn't let me have my half of the road!" After gathering as much information as possible, he angrily approached the other driver, who was examining his own damage. The police officer asked, "That old lady says that you wouldn't let her have her half of the road, why not?" In exasperation, the man turns from his smashed car and says: "Officer, I would have been HAPPY to give her half of the road -- if she had just let me know WHICH half she wanted!!!!"

    How To Call The Police An elderly man was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. He opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked, "Is someone in your house?" He said, "No, but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me!" Then the police dispatcher said, "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available." George said, "Okay." He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again, "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now," and he hung up. Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the residence, and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the policemen said to the man, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!" He replied, "I thought you said there was nobody available?"

    What makes a song considered to be included in the list of "the worst"? A piece of music needs to have been notable, popular, or memorable to be deemed the "worst ever", or it would be unlikely to top all-time public polls a few years after it was released. As such, a piece usually needs to have had a high-profile at the time of its release, such as an unexpected hit that was highly disliked outside of its fanbase, albums with poor material or songs that are most disappointing by artists. Scholarly accounts of the "worst music ever" are rare. Most polls or critical lists are light-hearted in nature, especially in pop music. Magazines reflect the preferences of their readers, and if polls are influenced by too small a group of readers or critics, they provide unreliable results. Most "worst ever" lists do not aim to take into account all music ever created, but are limited to certain time periods, styles of music, and geographical areas. Furthermore, individual tastes can vary widely, to the point where very little consensus on a worst song can be achieved; the winning song in a CNN e-mail poll received less than 5 percent of the total votes cast. You might agree or not with the items listed on "Not in Hall of Fame" - www.notinhalloffame.com - 100 Worst Songs of Modern Pop Culture: I guess that the only "problem" with many of those "blacklisted" songs is some stupid lyrics which might annoy people. I must confess that I don't care much about how deep or intellectual might be the lyrics of a song. I even realized that some of the song listed were not in my discography and found them interesting and worth enough to download. So, I feel it will be fun to browse this webpage: http://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/100-worst-songs-of-modern-pop-culture Definitively it's well documented "worst..." listings. For each song you have the comment of the poster, the link to the YouTube video and comments of registered followers of the website. You even can vote without signing in, selecting if you agree or not with the classification.
