Removing permissions for a game

If you want to revoke a game's access to your account (as specified when you first began playing) and stop playing the game, you can remove permissions for that game.
To remove permissions for a game :
  1. Sign in to Google+ .
  2. Click your full name or email address in the Google+ bar.
  3. Click Account settings.
  4. Select Account overview (if not already selected).
  5. Next to "Authorizing applications & sites" click Edit.
  6. Click Revoke Access next to the game you don't want to play anymore.
If the game developer has created an account for you on their own systems, removing permissions for a game doesn't necessarily delete your account with them. You'll need to contact the developer if you want them to remove your account or delete information they have stored about you. To find developer contact information, we suggest visiting the game developer’s website.

Tips To Prevent Cellphone Radiation Brain Nukage

0 komentar
The dangers of cellphone radiation have been a hot topic lately, particularly after the World Health Organization gave the sobering announcement that cellphone radiation could possibly increase the risk of brain cancer. Additionally, research came out that suggested cellphones are responsible for killing off bees. They aren’t getting a good rep right now. While I was scared for a few minutes and considered ditching my Blackberry and running into the woods to live in a shack, I realized I love convenience too much.  They’re not going to turn nearby cell tower squirrels into radioactive freaks just yet, but there is some concern. So instead, here are some ways to keep your brain, and other body parts, safe from potentially hazardous cellphone radiation.

Turn your phone off or use airplane mode.

When not using your phone, turn the thing off. Problem solved. If you can’t, many phones have a function that allows their cellphones to be used on airplanes. Airplane mode cuts off all wireless transmissions from your cellular device, so there is no radiation being emitted. A bonus is that the phone uses less energy to operate when wireless transmissions are halted, so it saves battery.

Guys, don’t keep the phone in your pocket.

If you’re a guy and you keep the cellphone in your front pocket, you could be putting your sperm count in danger. A recent study suggests that cellphone use is linked to lower sperm quality and a decrease in fertility. While cellphone usage seems to increase the level of testosterone in the body, there is a lower level of luteinizing hormone, which plays a big role in the reproductive system. If you’re looking to start a family at some point, better keep your phone away from the family jewels. Turn off your phone, put it on airplane mode or get a satchel.

Don’t check Facebook in the middle of the night.

Some people take their phones to bed with them, which can disturb sleep. According to a survey done by iPass, 58 per cent of those surveyed who keep their smartphones within arm’s reach wake up during the night to check their phones. About 11 per cent of those people checked their phone every single night. Even if you’re not that compulsive and use it as an alarm, cellphone radiation can still impact your sleep. A team of researchers in Sweden did a one-year study where they followed over 4,000 young adult cellphone users. Their research suggested that a high frequency of cell phone use can lead to increased sleep disturbances. If you use your phone as an alarm clock, put it in airplane mode.

Text, text, text.

As I’m sure you know, sending texts requires less signal power than making calls. Texting is a simple way to avoid radiation exposure, so when you can opt for texting over calling them. Unless you’re texting to break up with someone. Then you’re just being a loser.

Use an air-tube headset.

While the cellphone industry loves to tout headsets as “safer,” the wires used can drive harmful cellphone transmission straight into your ear. An alternative is an “air-tube” headset that functions similar to a stethoscope. It uses a hollow air-tube to transmit sound from a speaker located at a distance from the head. The tube and earpiece contain no metal conductors, which eliminates any radiation present in conventional headsets.

Use the speakerphone setting.

No cash for a new headset? Use speaker mode when talking on your cellphone and place the phone at least 5 feet away from you. The farther the cellphone is the better. Just make sure they can still hear you.

Keep conversations short.

Don’t have an hour long conversation with your boyfriend or girlfriend before bed. Even a two-minute call has been found to alter the natural electrical activity of the brain for up to an hour afterwards. Use Skype if you want to say goodnight or to catch up with an old friend or call your parents. Provided you don’t have one of those old school computers with the giant monitor.

Be mindful of good and bad reception.

The harder the phone works to establish a connection, the more radiation is being emitted. Don’t use your cellphone in an area with poor reception. If you’re trying to talk to your buddy on the subway, just wait until you get to an area with better reception. Don’t use the cell phone in enclosed metal spaces such as vehicles or elevators. Also, wait for the call to connect before placing your phone next to your ear.

By following any of these simple steps, you’re reducing the amount of cellphone radiation frying your brain and affecting your body.

Warning for iPod Users

Public schoolboy on morning jog killed by train as he ran over level crossing wearing iPod

A talented public schoolboy was killed on a level crossing because he was listening to his iPod and failed to hear the oncoming train.
Sixth former Matthew Leonard was taking an early morning jog on Valentine’s Day when he was struck. He died instantly.
The 18-year-old boarder at the £25,000-a-year Christ’s Hospital School near  Horsham, West Sussex, was captain of the school’s cross-country running team, a gifted mathematician and had been offered places at several leading universities.
The horrific accident happened shortly before 7am less than two miles from the school, which has 840 boys and girls who regularly achieve some of the best GCSE and A-level results in the country.
Last night the school’s headmaster, John Franklin, paid tribute to Matthew, who won a gold medal after taking part in a nationwide mathematics competition last November.
‘The school community is shocked and saddened by this news and our thoughts are with the parents, the rest of our pupils and staff at the school at this very difficult time,’ said Mr Franklin.
‘Matthew joined us as a sixth former, a quiet but pleasant young man who was well liked by both his own year group and those younger pupils with whom he came in contact.
‘He was a bright, hard-working student, holding offers for some top universities, and was also a talented long-distance runner.

‘His tragic death has touched all at Christ’s Hospital and we will miss him greatly. The pupils and their parents have been informed and a special assembly and chapel service has been held.’
Yesterday contributors to the school’s internet forum offered their condolences to Matthew’s family and friends.

One posted: ‘There is a fairly large curve on the tracks which makes trains hard to see.
‘Although they are quite loud  on approach, if someone had  headphones on or was on the phone, this advance warning would be lost.’

A farmer at Sharpenhurst Farm – which is parallel to the railway track – told how pupils from Christ’s Hospital School would often run through his land.
‘There are always groups coming out for a run through the fields,’ said the farmer, who did not want to be named.
‘The police and paramedics  came down my road on Monday morning to get to the crossing.
‘The trains come past at about 75 miles an hour. It is a tragic waste of a young life.’
The accident mirrors the death of another Christ’s Hospital School sixth former who died more than 20 years ago. Richard Slater was killed on March 15, 1990, by the same Bognor to London train service after deliberately walking on to the tracks close to the school.
Recent research revealed that  as many as 17 accidents every day occur in Britain with victims described as having put themselves into ‘iPod oblivion’.
The AA has reported that  pedestrians, joggers, cyclists and motorists are all at risk of falling into a ‘zombie-like’ state while plugged into modern technology such as MP3 players.
