I was listening to music as I drove in unfamiliar territory. I thought a radio announcer was commenting to a guest. “1 can't understand what you are saying," the voice said again. “I'm not saying anything," I replied automatically, slightly star- tled. Was my phone talking to me? My phone has a voice—activated system. I reached over and noted it was turned off and in my purse. My heart beat a little faster. I was— n't sure where I was, and some lady was talking to me from an unknown location in my vehicle. On the third time I heard the voice, I figured out my portable GPS system was getting signals from the radio. I knew my new GPS unit could. tell me where to turn or to "turn around when possible" when I failed to follow directions. However, I was- n't expecting it to have a conversa- tion with me. On that day, my GPS directed me down a gravel road when paved roads were nearby. I didn’t always trust it, but I needed the advice. When I turned off the radio, the GPS stopped making comments and just told me where to turn. Sometimes, I miss paper maps, including the process of folding them back together. We are surrounded by technology of all kinds. With my phone and portable GPS navigation unit, I prob- ably had more technology in my ve- hicle than astronauts had on the original voyage to the moon. Technology plays a key role in moving information around society, and most of us get our information in several ways. Where are you reading this column? Some of you might be reading an email, others might read it in the newspaper, while others might find it on a website or shared through social media. , , Many people use textmessaging to communicate with friends and family, and they might use email at work and social media such as Face- book, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat to communicate with family and friends. About two out of three people get news on social media, but people are skeptical of what they read, accord— ing to the Pew Research Center. Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are the most commonly used social media sites. However, according to the 2018 Jullo Garden-Robinson Food 3. Nutrition Specialist Pew report, 57% expect the news on social media to be mainly inaccurate. We put up with some false infor— mation because we like convenience. Even though some information com— ing at us is wrong or misleading, we like the quick access. With so much information avail- able, we need some tools to help us decide its accuracy. California State University at Chico provided an easy—to—remember acronym. Their tool is called the "CRAAP Test," and you can pronounce it how- ever you'd like. Remember this tool as you decide what information you can and cannot trust. 1) "Currency" refers to the timeli- ness of the information. When was it created or posted? Has it been re- vised or updated? 2) "Relevance" is the importance of the information. Who is the audi- ence? Is it written at the right level? Have you looked for other sources of information? 3) "Authority" means the source of the information. Who is the au- thor? What are the author's creden- tials? Is the author qualified to write on the topic? Is a publisher or edito- rial board listed? Is the information posted on a website with .com in its web address? The last three letters at the end of a website URL can give us a clue to accuracy. Usually .com refers to a commercial site, which might be trying to sell you some- thing. A .gov site is a government site, while a .edu site usually indi— cates an educational site, often a uni- versity. 4) "Accuracy" refers to the truth- fulness of the content. Was the infor— mation reviewed or refereed, or is it a personal opinion? Is it written well in terms of grammar or spelling? 5) "Purpose" means the reason the information exists. Is it trying to sell . you something, entertain you, teach you or persuade you? Is the informa- tion objective? As you interact with information from a variety of sources look for re- liability and trustworthiness, espe- cially if you are seeking information that could affect your health. .

Hang to dry. - How much money should you have in an emergency cash fund? Experts say that at a minimum, you should have three months’ worth of necessary expenses (home payment, utilities, food and gas, minimum debt payments, etc.) in an accessible form. This means you can’t count the value of assets or stocks you own, nor any retirement funds. This sounds hard because it is, but it could make the dif— ference between success or failure in an emergency. 0 “I purchase a big pack of bottled water at my discount club. I keep it in the trunk, and it seems there are always opportunities for a bottle.
