All Your Lawn Care Considerations

It's that time of year when gardens and CSAs in the DC area are developing a bumper crop of basil. This strong, aromatic herb can be dried and stored, but is best converted in pesto spices. The sauce can be eaten with pasta, combined with mayonnaise for virtually any flavorful spread or dripped over tomatoes for a yummy summer salad. For those who have a ton of basil leaves and so want to make a large quantity of pesto for storage, ensure to seal in an airtight container and freeze for just…

11 Growing Organic Roses

Among the many many marvels of gardening is basically that you can create a gorgeous and productive garden with very little financial outlay. It will harder than going to your nearest nursery and stocking up cannabis you want. But I enjoy watching my garden evolve over time.

Loaning out Andriod Devices

We're looking to loan out 4G enabled Android devices for 3-5 weeks in conjunction with basic digital training to encourage residents to use online services.  What we can't find is the same methodology on Android OS as is available on iOS devices for reimaging the devices between loans.  We want to stick with Android, because they are likely to be more in line with the budgets of our residents.

Anyone out there loaning Android devices with recommendations of MDM and imaging…

Liability for Internet Content

I have come across a number of HAs who are worried to one degree or another about liability for becoming, in effect, an ISP by supplying wifi to tenants. A disclaimer is of course a useful tool, but I'm re-posting an updated and expanded article which is legal guidance to FE/HE establishments, but should generally apply to other organisation types too. Hope it helps with any nervous ICT departments :)…

Collecting older people's stories

Morning all. I am doing a piece of work for the Centre for Ageing Better whereby I am collecting stories of older people (50+) whose lives have been enhanced by their adoption of new technologies. Could anyone here suggest people who might be prepared to speak to me, preferably for a video interview? I have a short timescale on this.

Many thanks

A Manifesto for a Networked Nation

Thats the title of the paper Martha Lane-Fox wrote in July 2010 when she started RaceOnline2012 with great ideas and a huge target of 10.5 million people needing to learn new skills to become “digitally included”.

The then, and current Prime Minister, David Cameron gave before the paper was written,  the following statement;

Accessibility tools such as Browse Aloud

Hi all, I hope you are well?

Here at Rochdale Broughwide Housing we are working on website improvements and wondering about purchasing accessibility / translation tools such as Browse Aloud or whether there are plenty of free tools to use.  And which work best?

Skills is key but don't forget hardware and access

With requests over the last year to help with hardware and access we have continually delivered the best pricing consistently throughout 2015

Unless tenants are made aware of these deals the circle of skills training and no awareness of affordable solutions to truly become digitally included will continue

Skills is a vital part but so is hardware and access because people will not be digitally included without all 3!

The message needs to go from HA's to the tenants on a… Continue
