I get a lot of requests from individuals on how to accomplish a myriad of tasks using popular software. I also get requests from individuals asking for help creating Web pages, or writing computer programs in a variety of computer languages. Now there is an unusual free resource that can give everyone detailed instructions on how to complete his selected tasks. While there are many free online help and tutorial services, what makes this one unusual is that it is mostly based on still images (screen captures), with only a small amount of text explaining each image.

Bulbous, smelly, yet oh so good is one description of the Allium genus, or onions. These popular rhizomes can be either perennial or biennial. The onion is native to the northern hemisphere, Ethiopia, South Africa and Mexico.

Thank you to each of our Examiner readers who took the time to write, call or e-mail following last week’s article on the extreme behavior of a child that I witnessed first-hand in my home. I had hoped not to anger any parent, teacher or counselor of such a child, but to point out the severe need for parents to recognize the behavior and work to help these children reach their full potentials in life. Before letting the article go to be print, I sent a copy to one of the young mothers I trust so much in this field.

Having interviewed dozens of families, visiting with many for lengthy periods of time, and observing carefully parental learning, loving and leading of children with autism, aggression, physical limitations, environmental challenges and anti-social behavior, I’ve come to believe I know very little. I am totally amazed at how much effort it takes on the part of these parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers and others who love these children greatly to help these often gifted children see normal development for their individual lives.

Just as the automakers announce their new offerings every fall, so do the major security software publishers. In recent days, I have seen announcements and promotions for the 2012 offerings from Kaspersky, AVG, Panda, and TrendMicro. 2012 editions from McAfee and Norton may be available by the time that you read this. With each new model year, just like the automakers, the computer security software companies typically offer more features and improved performance.
