SCREEN TIME CONTROL APP THAT YOU WILL LOVE TO USE

Screen Time Control App That You Will Love to Use: FamiSafe.

Sometimes parents will leave him to live in other states or countries for a job or business. One may get too nervous about their kids' lives, which is common, especially with moms. But do you know you can access their activities while you are away? This shouldn't cause you confusion. Relax; you will find out more here.

If you live away from home, probably your children use a mobile phone to communicate with you. Of course, they can't live without talking to you as their parent. Sorry to say, calling you could be of less priority than you think. Children can spend a lot of time on phone screens and not doing anything constructive. Your kids may forego meals or sleep to chat with classmates and their new online friends.

In the process of interacting, they may link to malicious accounts and get trapped. They could be sent messages containing illegal content that might see the police at your doorstep. I pray it won't happen like that.

The fact is that employing a security man at your gate is not enough security for your children. Phones have become dangerous to youngsters, and if not well manned, children will slowly destroy their future.

Instead of using the internet to search for educative content, most use it to access inappropriate content such as pornography.

A lot of guidance and counseling is required for children to be safe. Moreover, you can download and install Wondershare's FamiSafe parental control app to monitor your children closely.

Also, a family with several kids can use the same subscription as long you have access to their phones to set up the app. you can real-time location for every family member with minimal hassle and no cost.

App Blocking.


At times you need to control the apps that are used by your children. With FamiSafe, you can view their app use. If you find that the app is unnecessarily used, you can permanently block it for a while. For example, if your children watch YouTube videos during sleep time, you should block the YouTube app whenever that comes. You can unblock it later or leave it blocked.

Not only apps but also the entire device; the parent can choose to block the device completely, especially during sleep time or when the kid is driving.

Browsing history feature.

FamiSafe parental control app helps you to peep into your kid's internet activities. You can see a list of the accessed sites and block the ones you are suspicious about. If you realize that a site has been visited severally, it's good to open it and authenticate the value of its content. If it contains harmful content, notify the authorities of such a site, and block it.

Screen Time Control Feature.

This feature is available on both versions of the application. You can see your kids' live screen activities. If you realize they are not doing the right thing at any given time, you can block the specific apps they are using and unblock them later. You can schedule when the children can use the phone so that they attend to their daily duties.

How much does the FamiSafe Parental Control App Cost?

Most of the apps are extra expensive despite being ineffective. Fortunately, Wondershare considered this before bringing the FamiSafe parental control app to us.

GOO GOO DOLLS' JOHNNY RZEZNIK TO HIGHLIGHT NJ FUNDRAISER

Johnny Rzeznik of The Goo Goo Dolls 

 ASBURY PARK, NJ (Nov. 16, 2020) — The world seems to change on an hourly basis, but there is at least one thing that remains constant: When help is needed, Light of Day’s musical family is always there to lend a hand — and a tune.

That’s been the case countless times, and will be once again beginning 11:15 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 22 as 19 Garden State music makers combine their talents for SHINE A LIGHT, a streaming musical event in support of ASBURY PARK DINNER TABLE.

The non-profit organization is dedicated to helping Asbury Park’s dining industry — a key component of the town’s stunning rebirth as a leisure and entertainment destination — which has been severely affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and to helping local residents who are experiencing food insecurity as the pandemic rages. The concept behind APDT is that donations it receives are spent at local eateries to purchase meals for those in need.

Heading up the formidable talent roster is Johnny Rzeznik, lead singer of superstar rock act, The Goo Goo Dolls. He’ll be joined by 18 other artists including longtime Bruce Springsteen collaborator Joe Grushecky and his band, The Houserockers, Jim Babjak of The Smithereens, Jersey Shore favorites The Weeklings and a host of acclaimed singer-songwriters, among them Richard Barone of The Bongos, James Maddock, Ben Arnold, and Danielia Cotton. Each artist will perform one song. See below for the complete list of participants.


The event will formally kick off right before 11 a.m. as Tom Cunningham, host of the Jersey Shore Sunday morning radio institution Springsteen on Sunday on 107.1 “The Boss,” will “shine a light” on the presentation and direct his listeners to Light of Day’s YouTube channel and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LOD2000).

You can also join the APDT Watch Party at https://www.facebook.com/APDinnerTable.

This very special event is being staged by the Asbury Park-based Light of Day Foundation (LOD), whose annual January-long concert series in support of Parkinson’s Disease research and treatment have been a Jersey staple for more than two decades. “As winter approaches and the issue of food insecurity during this COVID crisis grows, The Light of Day Foundation will ‘shine its light’ in an effort to raise money and awareness to support its spiritual hometown and the great work of Asbury Park Dinner Table,” said Tony Pallagrosi, LOD’s executive director and co-founder.

“The Asbury Park Dinner Table is honored to have the Light of Day Foundation “shine a light” on us as we now face the Winter months, which normally are stark in Asbury Park, but now are at a crisis stage with the addition of the pandemic. We also thank and appreciate the artists donating their time and talent to this concert fundraiser in the Asbury Park community spirit that many of us know is something very special,” added Allison Kolarik, co-founder, Asbury Park Dinner Table.

4 Things You Should Never Do After a Car Accident


4 Things You Should Never Do After a Car Accident

Accidents happen unannounced, and it doesn’t matter how good your driving skills are; you can never rule out the possibility of getting into a road crash. Most people think they will never get into an auto crash, which is one reason they are unable to deal with an accident. If a victim ends up making a poor decision about their injury or reacts wrong in the situation they can end up losing their personal injury compensation or worse.That is why it is always better to prepare for an accident in advance so that the victim doesn’t have to face any long term consequences. More than six million accidents happen in America every year so every driver must know the basics of dealing with an accident.In this article, I have mentioned a few things that you should never do after a car accident. Following these tips can save you from a lot of hassle.

Never Flee the Scene

It doesn’t matter how brutal the accident looks; you must never flee the scene just because you are panicking. The law states that you should always check up on the other driver after the accident and must exchange contact details with them. If you flee the scene, it will be seen as a misdemeanor, and you might end up receiving the blame for the accident even if you weren’t at fault.

Don’t Forget to Call the Police

It is extremely important for you to call the police after an accident so that they can document the details of the crash. In most accidents where no one has suffered an injury, people tend to avoid calling the police, which can prove costly for later proceedings. If the accident is not documented by the authorities, then everyone will be sharing their side of the story in the court, and your compensation case will become more complicated.

Don’t Neglect Paperwork

When you are filing for a personal injury claim, it is always best that you hire an experienced lawyer like Kreizer Law, who will help you with all the paperwork. The American law system is a bit complicated, and you will have a bit of trouble with the paperwork if you don’t have decent knowledge about it. You must also take photos of the crash site and vehicles so you will have something substantial to show in the court. Keeping track of your medical receipts as well so that you can show in court how much damage you have suffered. 

Denying Injury

If you feel like you have gotten out of the accident unhurt, then that doesn’t necessarily mean you should not get any medical attention. Adrenaline is pumping through your veins after the accident, and it can easily mask your injuries. There could be an injury that might seem minor but can prove harmful in the long term. So, once you have dealt with the crash site, you must visit a doctor for a complete checkup. Also, keep in mind if you refuse medical attention at the crash site, then that can be held against you in court during your personal injury case proceeding.

Los Angeles, CA – Malcom John Rebennack, Jr. – better known as Dr. John, The Night Tripper – was a New Orleans icon. A purveyor of authentic popular music that mixed in blues, jazz, boogie-woogie, funk and soul to create one of the most potent musical concoctions this side of the Mississipi.

Yet it also gave many artists and fans an opportunity to rediscover or discover for the first time, Dr. John’s mammoth catalog of albums.

Among the diverse flavors found in Dr. John’s albums is a rare spice from 1974 called Anytime, Anyplace that has become the savory base for a brand new musical gumbo as blues veterans such as Sonny Landreth and Joe Louis Walker along with newcomers Chantel McGregor, King Solomon Hicks and Mike Dawes as well as fellow New Orleans icon Doug Kershaw all join in for a multi-flavored masterpiece!

BEST RETRO GAMES OF ALL TIME


Gaming has come a long way since its introduction in the late 80’s which now look like a shadow of what is being released on the upcoming new 5th generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft. However, these new games wouldn’t be available to us without the likes of retro games in the first place; today we look at some of the best classics of all time.

A list of the best retro games of all time wouldn’t be right if we didn’t include a Super Mario game and none other than Super Mario Bros 3. This game was the catalyst in the platform game sector with Nintendo back in 1993 and came with a whole host of predecessors afterward. Quite easily one of the best side-scrolling games of all time, and known for its fun gameplay, flowing mushrooms and jumping to the highest point on the flag.

Another one of our favorites when it comes to retro games is of course Street Fighter II. One that was mainly introduced as an arcade card where many of us would travel back to play our favorite games. Street Fighter II was one of the first fighting games on consoles and changed the street fighter demographic forever and lived in the minds of us forever.

Gaming as we know it now has changed a lot since its introduction and this has mainly been down to the advances in technology over time. Gaming isn’t the only industry that has benefitted from these advances as online casinos can now be played wherever, whenever due to the use of their apps and 5G connectivity when looking at casinos not on gamstop. These casinos have particularly benefitted because of the quality of casino they have on offer and with the promotions and sign up bonuses for all new customers that they are offering at the moment.

Initially released back in 1978, and probably the first game on the market ever was that of Space Invaders. The first cover shooter allows you to attempt to stop an alien invasion was one of the funniest games to play on the arcades as you pitted yourself against your friends' high scores.

And finally, and our personal favorite would be that of Pac Man which was initially released in the late ’80s. Again like Space Invaders, many would pit themselves against their friends to try and produce a high score of eating as many dots as possible without getting caught by the ghosts – Pac Man is certainly one of the best retro games of all time.

PINK DOTS TEAM WITH BADFINGER ON NEW VERSION OF MIDNIGHT CALLER


THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS Team With Classic Rock Legends BADFINGER For A New Version Of “Midnight Caller!”

Los Angeles, CA - The Legendary Pink Dots founder Edward Ka-Spel is well-known as one of the most prolific artists to emerge from the ‘80s post-punk underground but in his 40+ studio albums with the Dots, Ka-Spel has never done something quite as adventurous as this new single. “Midnight Caller” is one of the highlights from Badfinger’s smash hit album from 1970 No Dice, and this year Ka-Spel was given the opportunity to refresh this classic track, bringing his own prodigious production skills and immense talent for arrangement to the late great Pete Ham’s composition. Featuring vocals and bass by longtime Badfinger bandleader Joey Molland, “Midnight Caller” becomes in the hands of Ka-Spel simultaneously more lush and more sinister offering a dark psychedelic spin that seeps its way into almost everything The Dots touch.

Croatia.jpeg

If you have a sweet tooth for wine, Croatia must be in your bucket list. The country has made some of the finest wine in the world for more than 4000 years. You can then imagine their mastery of the winemaking craft.

In recognition of their prowess in winemaking, wineries in Croatia offer wine tasting tours to different regions throughout the country. According to Mypaperwriter.com, students who hire professional writers have more time to enjoy their college years, including visits to such places as Croatia where your view of the world is changed forever. Here are the top 5 must-visit vineyards in Croatia.

Korta Katarina Winery, Peljesac

The winery is located in one of the oldest winemaking regions in Croatia. The Peljesac Peninsula extends into Adriatic, one of the best environments for wine production. It is located in some of the southernmost regions of Croatia where the best tasting wine is produced.

To get to Korta Katarina Winery, you can fly into the region from the capital a journey of one hour from Dubrovnik. The region is home to Postup and Dingac, some of the initial appellations of controlled origins to be registered in Croatia. The rich tradition of winemaking also makes their varieties unique and guaranteed to awaken your tastebuds.

A unique attraction when visiting Kortra Katarina winery is the variety of food offer alongside the wines. It is a selection you are not likely to find anywhere else yet it goes down so well with the wine. Their winemaking traditions are also unique and a valuable rider for visitors to the wineries. The wine tasting events combine perfectly with the breathtaking view of the Dalmatian Coast to give you an unforgettable experience.

Milos Winery

The winery is also one of the oldest in the region and is respected for its unique tasting wines. The winery stands out among peers in the Peljesac region because of upholding the classic wine production formula. The winery uses the Plavac Mali or little blue grape to produce the uniquely flavored red wine it is famous for.

The winery is a family business run by Flano and his sons. They have preserved an age-old tradition where the taste of wine has a lot to do with its years in the factory. It ranks among the best vineyards in the world because of the use of natural yeast and typical Slavonian oak barrels. This method makes it impossible for wineries elsewhere to imitate their unique taste.

While at the vineyard, look for their signature Plavac Mali and Stagnum brands. The mountainous setting on the horizon gives you a perfect wine tasting setting that will awaken your sense of taste. If forms part of the overall wine tasting experience that is impossible to find anywhere else.

Plenkovic Winery, HVar Island

Any tourist traveling to Croatia wants to pay homage to this famous vineyard tucked somewhere on Hvar Island. The island is known as one of the sunniest parts in Europe, receiving more than 2,715 hours of sun each year. The temperatures are also among the most favorable to grow grapes.

Plenkovic winery has also won numerous awards for its winemaking formula and ability to produce the most unique tasting bottles. The area is iconic for its rolling vineyards and olive trees, giving you an unforgettable view while you sip on your glass. As you make the trip to the winery, the views are breathtaking, leaving you more thirsty and ready for what the vineyards have to off. What you get upon arrival is worth the trip.

Visitors are introduced to exceptionally designed cellars in the picturesque countryside. The tour around the production facility is equally rewarding. It is a mindblowing journey to follow a grape from the farm until it turns into one of the tastiest wines in the world.

Stina Winery, Brac Island

Stina or whitestones is the symbol of Brac, the largest island in the Dalmatian region. The stones were used in the construction of the Diocletian Palace found in Split. Rumor also has it that the stones were exported for use in the construction of the White House in Washington, DC. That white setting raises the curtain for an unforgettable wine tasting experience in Croatia.

Brac’s whitestones have also inspired countless sculptors, poets, and painters in Croatia to sharpen their art. It is, therefore, understandable to hear that the same stones are the inspiration behind Stina Winery. The name also refers to the challenges of growing grapes on this steep terrain. However, it has one of the sweetest endings imaginable.

Stina Winery constantly reinvents itself without altering its unique taste. Recently, new grapevines were planted and the production facility renovated. To maintain the health of the grapes, cultivation is still done by hand. You identify their wines because of the unique packaging designed by Bruketa and Zinic, a celebrated Croatian design studio.

Boskinac Winery, Pac Island

Pac Island is a famous entertainment destination, hosting some of the longest-running festivals in the world. The island also features excellent dreamy beaches worth every minute you will ever spend in Croatia. The island has also made it into the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites because of its unique gastronomical offerings, including the unforgettable wines.

Boskinac Winery was built in 2000 but has transformed the wine tasting story of Croatia. The vineyard has been feted nationally and internationally for its spectacular wines. The most distinct is the coupage of merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, among other local white wine varieties.

The winery is located at a valley among pine trees, giving you a welcoming scenery that will awaken your senses. Wine tasting adds to the mouthwatering cuisine you will enjoy at the island. Visit and give your story about the eye milk cheese served with anchovies.

It is evident that Croatia loves wine and anyone who visits the country will have a unique wine-story to tell. Talk to tour experts about a wine-tasting experience in Croatia and enjoy a tour of a lifetime. This is one of the destinations you will want to return after your initial visit.

KENNETH GAMBLE & LEON HUFF: ‘YOU GOT WHAT I NEED


Click here to listen to Freddie Scott singing “You Got What I Need.”

PHILADELPHIA – Legendary Philadelphia International Records (PIR) co-founders and R&B pioneers Kenneth Gamble & Leon Huff have a new commercial placement from their massive song catalogue. “YOU GOT WHAT I NEED,” which Gamble & Huff wrote and produced in 1968 for Freddie Scott – three years before launching PIR - is currently getting massive TV exposure in a new ETSY.COM commercial. Philadelphia International Records was home to The O'Jays, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, and many other acts that defined the Philadelphia soul sound of the '70s.

“Seeing the Etsy commercial featuring the song on TV so prominently, makes us instantly reflect back 52 years, when we wrote and produced the song in the studio for Freddie Scott – a great, yet unsung Soul/R&B artist and vocalist,” said Gamble & Huff in a joint statement. “We are so glad this original song and Freddie are getting their just recognition and their due.”

Usage of “YOU GOT WHAT I NEED” has proven popular for sampling in recent years. But this is the first time the original recording is anchoring a popular TV commercial in the U.S.

Rapper Biz Markie used many elements of the original recording on his 1989 hit "Just A Friend." Kanye West, Common, Pusha T and Big Sean feat. Kid Cudi and Charlie Wilson sampled the song on “Good Friday” (2010). Ghostface Killah sampled it on “Save Me Dear” (2004). And in 2017, Janelle Monáe sang “You Got What I Need” in a Gap commercial promoting their Christmas offerings

“YOU GOT WHAT NEED” originally reached #27 on the R&B chart. Scott died in 2007 at age 74.

New Online Casinos » Best Bonuses For Mobile Casino GamesImage: Casino News Daily

Online casinos have become rather popular in recent times with over 33.6 million active gambling accounts in the UK in 2020. This has mainly been down to the light-hearted fun they offer, a wide variety of types of games and the ease of access that they now offer in a very flooded market. Below are some of our favorite games to play in the online casino when we log on.

The most popular game in the online casino is usually Blackjack with over a half claiming that that is their go to game when they open their casino account. When you take into consideration that the chance of the dealer winning against you is much lower of that compared to other games, this is certainly a factor as to why it is the most popular. There are also the options to place side bets within the main game which make it every more inviting. If we were going to recommend a casino game, it certainly would be Blackjack.

Next on the list of popular casino games is of course Roulette with unlike Blackjack is a game of pure chance and luck but has always been one of the most spun games in the casino. Many have played this game due to the chance of winning bigger compared to Blackjack; however, this does come with more risk as the chance of the dealer winning considerably higher when it comes to Roulette.

10 CC/GODLEY&CREME LEGEND KEVIN GODLEY RELEASES NEW VIDEO



Kevin Godley has released a new video “Expecting a Message” from his highly anticipated forthcoming solo album MUSCLE MEMORY!

“This is as DIY as it gets. No film crew, no editor, no budget. The plan was to make a film, stream of consciousness style, doing everything myself, like I’m recording music. Improvise, throw stuff in and make sense of it later and I did…all except the last bit. I guess it’s a performance film of sorts, all shot within a hundred yard radius of home and, at the risk of this sounding like a commercial, it would’ve been impossible without my iPhone X, Adobe Premier Pro and Wondershare Filmora editing software and two supremely cool apps, GlitchCam and EFEKT. Not sure if it’s the message I was expecting though.” - KG

MUSCLE MEMORY marks Kevin’s first time fronting a project. His lyricism is cutting, political and provides a mood similar to film dialogue over classic pop lyricism. Gun control, societal unrest, racism and questions regarding political correctness make for some of the most striking lyrical content likely heard on an alternative pop record. This is a dark record from someone not known for dark themes.

Kevin’s career features numerous exceptional albums and sees him as one of the most important pioneers of the pop music video. MUSCLE MEMORY is a fitting addition to this body of work, offering a provoking, daring new insight into Godley’s creative practice. Tracks from the album will be released in order every two weeks until the album's release on the 17th of December 2020.
