*1)  Fact of the Day:

The number "five" is important to the Pentagon in many ways. Sure, it has
five sides, but the building also has five stories, and the courtyard in the
center encompasses an area of five acres.



*2)    Interview regarding the Unified Braille Code


below is a link to a good interview in which Jennifer Dunnum, current chair
of BANA,  discusses the considerations and advantages of the Unified Braille
Code.  She also mentions the UEB Reader, a document available at
www.brailleauthority.org which describes the 

changes and gives examples.  With next year being the year of the switch
over, it's probably time for us to start learning UEB.

This presentation will focus on the transition to Unified English Braille in
the United States. 

Specific topics will include some background on the Braille Authority of
North America; the 

general reasons for the transition to UEB; progress to date on
implementation; some of the 

specific differences that will be most noticeable to braille readers; UEB
and technology; where to 

get books and other documents in UEB; currently available instructional
resources; and how to 

learn more. Questions from the audience most welcome. 


Jennifer Dunnam has represented the National Federation of the Blind on the
board of the Braille 

Authority of North America since 2004 and currently serves as the chair of
BANA. A lifelong 

braille reader and certified braille transcriber, she coordinates the
courses leading to the 

certification of braille transcribers and proofreaders offered by the

*3)  Free Microsoft Office for Students

A lot of students worldwide can get Microsoft Office for free: 




*4) Ten Things That Will Disappear In Our Lifetime


This is USA oriented, but Canada & the rest will not be far  behind. Whether
these changes are good or bad depends in

part on how we adapt to them. But, ready or not, here they 


1.  The Post Office


Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are 

so deeply  in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it
long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out 

the  minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most 

of your mail every day is junk mail and bills.


2.  The Check


Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with check by 2018. It
costs the financial system billions of dollars 

a year to process checks. Plastic cards and online 

transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check. 

This plays right into the death of the post office. If you never 

paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the 

post office would absolutely go out of business.


3.  The Newspaper


The younger generation simply doesn't read the newspaper. They certainly
don't subscribe to a daily delivered print edition.  As for reading the
paper online, get ready to pay for it. The rise in mobile Internet devices
and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form 

an alliance. They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the 

major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid 

subscription services.


4.  The Book


You say you will never give up the physical book that you 

hold in your  hand and turn the literal pages I said the same thing about  

downloading music from iTunes. I wanted my hard copy CD.  But I quickly
changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price
without ever leaving home to get 

the latest music. The same thing will happen with books. 

You  can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview 

chapter before you buy. And the price is less than half that of 

a real book. And think of the convenience! Once you start  flicking your
fingers on the screen instead of the book, you 

find that you are lost in the story, can't wait to see what happens next,
and you forget that you're holding a gadget instead of a book.


5.  The Land Line Telephone


Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, 

you don't need it anymore. Most people keep it simply 

because they've always had it. But you are paying double 

charges for that extra service. All the cell phone companies 

will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no 

charge against your minutes.


6.  Music


This is one of the saddest parts of the change story. The music industry is
dying a slow death. Not just because of illegal downloading. It's the lack
of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would
like to hear it. Greed and corruption is the problem. The record 

labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-

destructing. Over 40% of the music purchased today is 

"catalog items," meaning traditional music that the public is 

familiar with. Older established artists. This is also true on 

the live concert circuit. To explore this fascinating and 

disturbing topic further, check out the book, "Appetite for 

Self-Destruction" by Steve Knopper, and the video 

documentary, "Before the Music Dies."


7.  Television Revenues

True, the networks are down dramatically, not just because 

of the economy. People are watching TV and  movies streamed from their
computers. And they're 

playing  games and doing lots of other things that take up the time 

that used to be spent watching TV. Prime time shows have 

degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator. Cable rates
are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30  

seconds. I say good riddance to most of it. It's time  for the cable
companies to be put out of our misery. Let 

the  people choose what they want to watch online and 

through  Netflix.


8.  The "Things" That You Own


Many of the very possessions that we used to own are still in our lives,  

but we may not actually own them in the future. They may  simply reside in
"the cloud." Today your computer has a hard  

drive and you store your pictures, music, movies, and  

documents. Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can 

always  re-install it if need be. But all of that is changing.  

Apple, Microsoft, and Google are all finishing up their latest  

"cloud services." That means that when you turn on a computer,  

the Internet will be built into the operating system. So,  

Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into 

the  Internet. If you click an icon, it will open something in the  

Internet cloud. If you save something, it will be saved to the  cloud. And
you may pay a monthly subscription fee to the 

cloud  provider. In this virtual world, you can access your music or  

your books, or your whatever from any laptop or handheld  device. That's the
good news. But, will you actually own  any of this "stuff" or will it all be
able to disappear at any  

moment in a big "Poof?" Will most of the things in our lives  

be disposable and whimsical? It makes you want to run to 

the  closet and pull out that photo album, grab a  

book from the shelf, or open up a CD case and pull out the  



9.  Joined Handwriting (Cursive  



Already gone in some schools who no longer teach "joined 

handwriting"  because nearly everything is done now on computers or 

keyboards of  some type (pun not  



10.  Privacy


If there ever was a concept that we can look back on 

nostalgically, it  would be privacy. That's gone. It's been gone for a long
time anyway.. There are cameras on the street, in most of the  

buildings, and even built into your computer and cell phone.  

But you can be sure that 24/7, "They" know who you are and 

where you  are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google 

Street  View. If you buy something, your habit is put into a zillion  

profiles, and your ads will change to reflect those habits..  

"They" will try to get you to buy something else. Again and  

again and again.


All we will have left that which can't 

be changed.......are our

*6)How to knock out Serious Mold

(Mary Hunt's Everyday Cheapskate)


Most people-myself included, until I did more research-assume that household

bleach will kill mold completely. We assume that because it bleaches the
dark color. Not so.

Even freshly manufactured household bleach is unable to kill mold. Bleach
that sits around store shelves or in your home continually gets weaker over
time. Even the manufacturers' usage directions do not recommend using it to
kill mold. If you want effective mold kill, I absolutely recommend that you
use Nok-Out (use code DPL 

for 10% off any order). And not to get too technical, Nok-Out is guaranteed
to maintain its efficacy within a two year shelf life, when used according
to the manufacturer's directions. It is effective against mold spores
because it structurally 

disassembles the cell so that it cannot revive to re-infest. Nok-Out does
indeed kill spores. 

The professionals you brought in to assess the problem would likely use a
machine called a "fogger" to treat the air (and thus kill the spores). As
you have discovered, that is an expensive proposition. 

A much cheaper alternative is to use a common household vaporizer to treat
the air with Nok-Out, which will kill the spores on surfaces and in the air,
overnight. A vaporizer is MUCH slower, but is quiet and can be done
overnight while you sleep. 

Nok-Out is very easy to use and absolutely effective. Nok-Out is not harmful
to humans, animals and the environment yet specifically engineered to target
the threats that do plague our indoor environments. 

I am going to predict that for no more than $50 you can do this job
yourself-with confidence that it has been done right. Your home will not be
subjected to chemicals or toxins and you will not have to go to a hotel
while the work is being done. Yes, I'm talking cheaper, better and faster!

I want to encourage you to go to NokOut.com (and don't forget to save 10%
using code DPL) to read up on the product. It is not available in stores,
but you can order it directly from this site. 



There you will also find numerous articles on this specific challenge of
treating visible mold and mildew, the areas 

you cannot reach and the spores in the air that you cannot see. 

Good luck and 


One last thing. Sometime in the near future, Nok-Out disinfectant is going
to be rebranded under a new name- "Sniper." Only the name will change but
the product itself will not have changed in the least. Nothing "New and

Noteable App Updates

BBC News (UK Version) (Free)

Last month, we were expressing our disappointment at how the BBC had 

dropped the ball in terms of accessibility with the release of version 3.0

this app. So, it's been great to see two updates released in February, both

which have explicitly addressed some of the accessibility issues introduced

that release. There's still some work to be done before this app is back to 

the level of accessibility that we have come to expect from BBC apps, but we

are nearly there.

knfbReader ($99.99)

The knfbReader app converts printed text into high quality speech to provide

accurate, fast, and efficient access to both single and multiple page 

documents. Features such as the Field of View Report, Automatic Page 

Detection, and Tilt Control all helped to make this an immediate hit with 

blind users when it was launched last year and a category winner in our 

Golden Apple Awards of 2014.

Released in February, the version 1.4 update has added a number of new 


*      A new design for the file explorer, now all files in one table
instead of 

three separate tables. 

*      Text recognition on images from email or the camera roll. 

*      Vertical tilt detection added. 

*      Optimized VoiceOver and Braille display support. 

*      New import/export user-interface and optimization for import/export

Voice Dream Reader ($9.99; offers in-app purchases)

Having recently been voted the best iOS app of 2014 in the AppleVis Golden 

Apple Awards, it is unlikely that this powerful and high-configurable

tool will need an introduction.

In the latest update, there are minor improvements in most of the voices. 

The developer has also taken the opportunity provided by this update to 

offer many new voices:

*      US English: Ashley from NeoSpeech, and Karen and Rod from Acapela 

*      UK English: Hugh from NeoSpeech

Workflow: Powerful Automation Made Simple ($2.99)

Workflow is a recently-released automation tool for iOS that enables you to 

create powerful workflows which might previously only have been possible 

on jailbroken devices.

Workflow includes over 200 actions, including those for Contacts, Calendar, 

Maps, Music, Photos, Camera, Reminders, Safari, AirDrop, Twitter, 

Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, and iCloud Documents.

Your workflow creations can be launched from inside the Workflow app or 

from other apps using Workflow's Action Extension. You can even export a 

workflow as a standalone app on your home screen.

The initial release of this app could be used with VoiceOver, provided that 

you put some time and patience into it. However, the developer has sought 

to address many of the accessibility issues, meaning that version 1.1 is 

much more usable.

*8)   How to Wake up a Cake Mix

Mary Hunt's Everyday Cheapskate


If I didn't know better I'd swear that boxed cake mixes reproduce in the

of night on the shelves of my pantry. One day I counted 18 boxes of cake


Here's how that works: Cake mixes go on sale routinely. One week it will be
Duncan Hines, then Pillsbury takes its turn and so on. The typical sale
price for a cake mix is typically $1.50 or less. I hold onto my cake mix
coupons until that particular brand goes on sale. With a $.75 or even $1 off
coupon, rarely do I pay more than $.50 for a cake mix.

The challenge for me has been to find better ways to make a boxed cake mix
taste homemade. 


Check these quick hits plus five of my favorite recipes that use a cake mix
as one of the ingredients:

Forget the water. Use whole milk (or even buttermilk) in place of the water
called for in the package instructions.

Devil's food. Any kind of a chocolate mix will really perk up and take on
that wonderful homemade taste when you use strong brewed coffee in place of
the water, and toss in a handful of chocolate chips, too.

Counteract the sweet. Cake mixes are very sweet with a distinctive "cakemix"

taste. Adding 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 or 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice to
any white or yellow cake will counterbalance the sweetness and hide the tell
tale taste of the mix.

Butter is better. Instead of the oil called for in the box mix instructions,
substitute with melted butter. 

And now for some of my favorite recipes that use a box mix as an ingredient
to make all kinds of yummy desserts:

Cake Mix Cookies

1 18.25 ounces yellow cake mix

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven go 350 F. Dump cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in the oil and
eggs until well blended (go ahead, use your clean hands). Mix in the chips.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls or roll into balls the size of walnuts and place
2 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet and flatten just a bit with your
fingers. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not over bake. Remove from pan to cool
on wire racks. Yield: About 2 

dozen 2-inch cookies.

Because there are so many different kinds of cake mixes (with pudding, with
double pudding, extra moist and so on), you may need to make slight
adjustments to this recipe. For example, I've found that with some varieties
of mix the dough is so stiff and dry it's not possible to form the cookies
into balls. When this happens I simply add one or two tablespoons of water
until the dough is workable. 

If you want to cut down on fat, try substituting 1/2 cup applesauce for the

Variations: You can use just about any combination of cake mix and chips. 

Example: Carrot cake mix with white chocolate chips; chocolate cake mix with
peanut butter chips; devils food cake mix with toffee bits chips; German
chocolate cake mix with pecans and coconut; white cake mix with crushed
pineapple (drained) and coconut. 

By the way, if you need lots of cookies in a hurry, this recipe multiplies
well. Just 

start with two cake mixes and double the additions. 

A tip on storing Cake Mix Cookies. Depending on the type of cake mix you
use, these cookies may dry out after two days. To prevent this store them in
an airtight container with a piece of bread. I don't know why, but for some
reason this keeps the cookies just as fresh and moist as can be.


Banana Pudding Cake

1 1/2 cups milk

1 3.5-ounce banana instant dry pudding

1 18.25-ounce spice cake mix

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3 eggs

2 bananas, mashed

1 16-ounce can white frosting or powdered sugar, to garnish

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix milk and pudding together until pudding gets
thick. Add cake mix, oil and eggs to the pudding mixture and beat with
electric mixer until fully incorporated. Stir in mashed bananas. 

Pour batter in a greased tube or Bundt cake pan. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or
until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Invert hot cake onto a platter.
When cake has cooled, spread white frosting or sift powdered sugar over
cake. Serves: 8-10.



Melted Ice Cream Cake

1 18.25-ounce white cake mix 

2 cups melted ice cream, any flavor 

3 large eggs 

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly mist a Bundt pan with vegetable oil spray
then dust with flour. Shake out the excess flour. Set the pan aside. 

Place the cake mix, melted ice cream, and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Mix
with electric mixer on low speed for one minute, scrape sides of bowl and
then beat another two minutes on medium speed. Pour into the prepared pan,
smoothing the top with the rubber spatula. 

Bake in the preheated oven until the cake springs back when lightly pressed
with your finger, 38 to 42 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and place
it on a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes. Run a long, sharp knife around the
edge of the cake 

and invert it onto a small rack, then invert it again onto a second rack so
that the cake is right side. Cool for 30 minutes longer. Frost with your
favorite icing or dust with powdered sugar. Serves 8-10.

Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write
them on the tablet of your heart.

So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man.
