US Open Golf 2021 Live Stream: Top 5 Predictions

May 1, 2021
US Open Golf 2021 Live Stream: Top 5 Predictions

Golf is a highly unpredictable game. Hence, you never know who comes up as the winner. It requires both skill and luck to win the game. But based on their recent performance, we can make some predictions about who can win. The US Open Golf 2021 live stream will be broadcasted from 17th to 18th June. You can watch the tournament from anywhere to see who becomes the Champion. For now, let's predict who can become that person.

Top 5 Players Who Possibly Can Win the 2021 US Open Golf

A lot of legendary players will participate in this year's US Open Golf, including Dustin Johnson, Roy McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, and more. A lot of fans expected Tiger Woods to participate in the game. He has won the previous US Open Golf Championship when it took place in Torrey Pines in 2008. Sadly, due to injury, he won't be able to participate in this year's edition.

However, the following is a list of the top 5 players who can win the Championship:

[Note: This prediction is purely based on the player's previous performance. Hence, we don't recommend anyone to make betting decisions based on this list]

1. Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau won the USGA Championship title last year. So, there's a high chance he can hold the title once again. However, he is struggling in the PGA tour. Still, DeChambeau holds the capacity to rise from the bottom. Previously we have seen multiple players win the title consecutively. If Bryson DeChambeau does that this year, he will be creating history.

2. Hideki Matsuyama

Earlier this year, Hideki Matsuyama won the 85th edition of the Masters golf tournament. He is the Japanese professional golfer to win the title. Matsuyama started the year on high. Can he continue it till the US Open Championship this year? To know that, you need to watch the US Open Golf 2021 live stream.

3. Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson is one of the most talked-about players to win the 121st edition of the US Open Golf Championship. Previously in 2016, he held the title once. Then last year, he also won the Masters tournament. Currently, he is in very good shape and prepared to win his second USGA Open Championship.

4. John Rahm

John Rahm will be participating in the event from Spain. He made his name known when he became the number one golfer in the world golf rankings last year. Rahm is working hard to get his first US Open win. He may get his dream come true this year.

5. Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy hasn't won any major tournament for a long time. He won the US Open title last in 2011. Besides, he also won some tours around that time. It's expected that once again, he will make his presence known in the golf world. What can be a better occasion than the US Open?

Final Thoughts

There are more than 100 players who will participate in this year's US Open Championship. So, you never know who gets the victory. The only way to know is to watch the US Open Golf 2021 live stream in June. So, who are you cheering for this year?

IT Change Management Software

April 7, 2021
IT Change Management Software

For any company or organization that heavily uses advanced technology, having an IT change management software system is a necessity. As innovation is a key factor for the success of many businesses, being able to track and work with changes and projects on the Internet is one of the most efficient ways to handle making good process in the shortest amount of time.

In order to do this, a good IT change management software application must have several features that augment the core functions. These include an automated e-mail notification system, adjustable work flows, customizable interfaces, spell checking, excel spreadsheet integration, and report generation. These work with the four step process best displayed in CME's application.

Management Software

The first of the four steps required in a good IT change management software application is what is known as the Initiation phase. This phase is where an employee, manager or business owner fills in a form on the web site that asks questions about the basic and in depth information of the project or change that needs to be worked on. When this is finished, the group the owner of the project assigned the task to will receive e-mails from the e-mail notification system, which informs them a new project has been created. Thus the Approval phase begins, where the members of the group will discuss all the aspects of the project and how it should be accomplished. This is the phase that allows your employees to avoid most meetings as well as the classic run around, as all of their discussions will take place on the Internet. When they have finished hashing out all of the details for the project, it will be passed to the next stage, which is the implementation phase. This is where the project is completed to the specifications that are discussed in the approval phase. When the project is completed, it is sent to the Confirmation phase to ensure that all of the work has been done to fit the required specifications. While there is an adjustable work flow to assist with making this process smoother, each of these four steps need to be present in order to make the most of the application. If you are interested in learning more about this type of application, or if you would like to schedule a demonstration of the product, find more about this.

Cash for Car Shoppers

In the market for a new car? This auto season will open more doors than expected for those that are.

There'll be plenty of choices debuting at the LA Auto Show. Over 50 new cars will have their premiere in November. The OC Auto Show will once again host the Camp Jeep off-road test track along with hundreds of hot rides.

But before that, Edmunds.com will pay six buyers to shop around.

That's right: Pay.

The resource for car shopping and automotive information is seeking applicants to its Connect & Drive Experience. The company will fly those chosen to Santa Monica, California where they'll drive and review five of the hottest new compact sedans on the market. For four days, they'll learn how to make informed decisions for their next purchase. All while getting paid to do so.

Talk about incentives. This unique program will transform ordinary drivers into informed ones. At the end of the immersive experience, there may be a few more order slips filled out at the auto shows, find more.

Legal residents of the United States 21 years or older with a valid driver's license and a clean driving record are eligible. The Connect & Drive Experience is September 24-27 and on the heels of Alt Car Expo, the alternative transportation event in Santa Monica.

Max Your Cash When You Sell the Old Car

Max Your Cash When You Sell the Old Car

My wife informed me we were going to have a little girl. I was elated and then immediately saddened. The Jeep Wrangler ragtop was going to go to someone else's barn -- and I knew it.

The Survey

I pulled the 2001 Wrangler Sport out of the stall and shortly realized that she would need some fresh lipstick. The vinyl windows were scratched and foggy, the window zippers were crusty, the fender flares were milky gray (normally shiny black), the left side fog lamp bulb was busted, as was the rear center break light bulb.

The Cost

We rumbled on down to the local "busted knuckle" garage to get an estimate for a spa day. I was thinking a $340-$450. Then came the, "Yes, sir, thanks for waiting, all in your looking at $850." I said, "I'll get back with you."

Plan B

The light bulbs, easy peasy. They came in the mail (ordered at www.autoanything.com). I rustled up a couple screwdrivers, the always-elusive star bit and a wrench. It took about 30 minutes and some choice words. I saved $75 in labor and parts markup right there.

The vinyl windows priced at retail are expensive. Next stop, Craiglist.com (saw some on eBay too). Sure enough, there were plenty to choose from that fit my make and model. They weren't perfect, but they were light years better than what I had. Paid $150 for the lightly used set and saved $200 off of the retail price and installation.

The plastic fender flare set for the Jeep was only $100 and change, but the installation cost of $150 was an awfully proud. I did some snooping online and low and behold there was an ingenious fender flare therapy right there on YouTube.com. It turns out a person can take a garden variety hardware store propane canister blow torch and wave it lightly over the plastic and the gray just melts away. It was not as good as new, but it qualified as fresh new lipstick indeed.

The Tally

A little elbow grease, Internet snooping and some blowtorch artistry saved me a whopping $525. This does not even account for the wow factor that allowed me to dig my heals in deep and get the $7,700 asking price.

Why I Switched from Hotmail to Gmail

March 20, 2021
Why I Switched from Hotmail to Gmail

A year ago I subscribed to Microsoft hotmail Live Plus, so that I could access my hotmail account in outlook express. Not wanting to pay the $19.95 again this year, I have switched over to Google's Gmail, and I love it. Everything in Gmail is easy to learn more and so intuitive.

The reason I paid for my hotmail account was I liked how outlook was able to bring everything into one place, my email, calendar, and contacts. It all worked fairly well, however, it wasn't worth paying $19.95 every year to keep. If it was free I would never have changed accounts, but for some reason Microsoft decided to start charging for this service, so I went off to try Gmail.

Opening a Gmail account is easy enough, just a few steps, and you're done. They even have a bunch of step by step tutorials to get you used to Gmail, and how to transfer over your contacts. In addition to these tutorials, they also can retrieve emails from other email accounts, so that you have one centralized place to view your email. Unfortunately this service doesn't work with hotmail since Microsoft doesn't use the traditional POP3 servers. I read on some message boards that there are services that will allow Gmail to check your hotmail account, however, I'm not comfortable giving my log in information to a company I have never heard of before. So as of right now I have to check to email accounts, but that's OK with while I transfer everything over to Gmail.

Hotmail to Gmail

I find Gmail to be the most functional email account I have ever had. The buttons are simple, and easy to find, its easy to create folders to save emails to, and search your saved emails. Once you open an email you have received, along the right side are links to save any dates in the email to your Google Calendar, get directions to any addresses in the email, and download any documents to your Google Documents, or Microsoft Word. Using these links they provide make it easier and quicker to get the information you need. Once you start using all of the different Google applications, you start to find they are just as good, if not better, than the Microsoft applications you are probably currently using.

One application I am surprised I like is Google chat. Having given up using AOL Instant Messenger long ago, I figured Google Chat would be similar, and unneeded. However, it is a quick easy way to see if other Gmail users (ones that you have previously emailed with) are online. It provides an easy functional way to communicate without adding messages to your inbox.

I am very happy that I made the switch to use Gmail rather than continue paying for hotmail. Even though I can enable Gmail in outlook, I don't think I will since the web version has so many additional functions. If you are thinking about changing your email account, look at Gmail, its free, so you have nothing to lose.

How to Determine the Value of Antiques and Collectibles

March 13, 2021
How to Determine the Value of Antiques and Collectibles

In general, an antique is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it. Antique prices ebb and flow from year to year. There are several factors to consider when determining the value of antiques and vintage items, but current trends always top the list. Other factors considered might include the maker's mark, the condition of the item, rarity, age and provenance.

Designer and Makers Marks

With porcelain and china the designer and maker's marks are usually found on the underside of the piece. The maker's mark is important to look for when valuing antiques. With vintage art pottery, for example, Moorcroft has much higher value than McCoy, and McCoy has a much higher value than Beauceware, even though all are very collectible.

Makers marks can be found on most good quality items, but not all. Before making an investment, study the piece carefully for marks or signatures and then do online research to help determine its value, check more details here.

Silver and Gold Marks and Hallmarks

Silver and Gold Marks and Hallmarks

The marks and hallmarks found on silver and gold items can show the collector where the item was made, when it was made, who made it and how much gold or silver is in the piece.

Understanding the symbols of silver and gold items requires a little research. Much of this knowledge comes with experience. Even gold and silver experts have to do a little research from time to time. Something unusual always pops up at estate sales and auctions. Information can be found at Modern Silver

Rare Items

Rare items, especially if they are highly sought after, often fetch high prices. But with online auction houses like eBay, a site used all over the world, many items once thought to be rare are turning out not to be so rare after all. Many antique dealer's use eBay to do their research because it offers current prices. Keep location in mind when researching, however, because buyers also consider the shipping fee of the items so there are a number of factors involved when researching on eBay.

Condition of the Piece

Condition of the Piece

The condition of the piece is also something to consider. A vase with a hairline crack or a small chip, won't be valued nearly as high as the same piece found in mint condition. There are few sales in damaged china unless the buyer wants it for display purposes or the piece is very rare. China can be restored, but it still won't have the same value as a piece in original condition.

Age and Value

The age of the piece does play a role in determining its value, but only a small role. Not all very old items have great value. A sap bucket may be old, but it's worth approximately $2 to $4. A gilt decorated book dated 1870 may be old and pretty to look at, but most are a dime a dozen and worth as much in the eyes of collectors. Age alone doesn't determine value.

History and Provenance

With rare and very collectible antiques and vintage items, proven history and provenance of the piece can add value. For instance, a vintage book may have little value on its own, but if it has a ex libris label in the name of Albert Einstien or George Harrison, the value is in that provenance. Provenance adds the history. It tells the present owner who owned it before and when.

Style and Collecting Trends

Style and collecting trends may not seem like an important factor when determining the value of antiques, but trends are actually one of the most important things to consider. Tastes change. And when people are no longer interested in French ivory vanity items, paint-by-number depictions of Hawaii or bone china tea cups from Shelley, the prices drop considerably. All the items mentioned were once important items at antique auctions, but prices have dropped and dealers aren't investing the huge sums of money to buy them that they once were.

Antique Appraisers

If an item is suspected of being very valuable, using the services of a professional antique appraiser would be a wise decision. The International Association of Appraisers is a good place to begin a search for an appraiser that will fulfill the collectors needs and help determine value. Many auctioneers and even local antiques dealers also offer an antiques appraisal service.

Using Antique Price Guides

There are also numerous antique price guides, including the well-known Miller's and Kovel's price guides. Most antique dealers don't use antique book prices. While they can offer a general sense of what a piece may be worth, the guides aren't accurate by location. What may fetch $500 in Manhattan or an elite antiques show, may only fetch $250 in Toronto's Queen Street Antiques neighborhood.

Mobility Scooters Can Make Your Body Worse

February 4, 2021
Mobility Scooters Can Make Your Body Worse

Mobility scooter commercials abound, depicting the newfound "independence" of their users, but at the same time, mobility scooters force your upper body into a harmful sedentary state. In many cases of people who use mobility scooters, or in people who are looking into acquiring a mobility scooter, these individuals have full function of their upper body. Unlike a manual wheelchair, the mobility scooter will eliminate considerable use of the shoulders, arms and even hands.

Mobility scooter rental universal studios, This article pertains ONLY to people who, despite having difficulty walking or being unable to walk, STILL have normal use of their upper body. They may not be as strong as they used to be, as far as lifting a heavy package to head level or unscrewing tight jar lids, but as far as day-to-day tasks that require the use of the arms and shoulders, they are still quite functional. This article does NOT pertain to users of mobility scooters who have handicapped function in their upper bodies that make maneuvering a wheelchair difficult.

Mobility Scooters

With that said, I strongly recommend that you think very hard about trading your manual wheelchair for a mobility scooter; or, if you currently don't use a wheelchair, think about perhaps getting the manual wheelchair instead of the mobility scooter. Manual wheelchairs are designed to be easily rolled about and maneuvered by people with limited upper body strength. I'm a certified personal trainer, and it's so incredibly important to keep the body moving - whatever parts can still move -- throughout all phases of life. If your upper body is functional, giving this up as a result of relying on a mobility scooter will prove harmful in several ways.

I have actually seen people with limited upper body abilities maneuver around in manual wheelchairs. These are people with spinal cord injuries to their cervical neck region, rendering them partially quadriplegic; no lower body movement, and partial upper body movement. Though they cannot use their hands, they can still push the wheelchair by pressing their hands to special knobs on the wheels. If semi-quadriplegics can do this, then people with FULL use of their hands can certainly manage a wheelchair.

I knew a few young adults while in college who used mobility scooters, even though they had full function of their upper body, arms and hands. Ironically, one of the wheelchair users in my dorm was a semi-quadriplegic who couldn't hold a pencil!

By using a mobility scooter

By using a mobility scooter, you will now be burning minimal calories, and unhealthy weight gain is inevitable. Your legs won't be walking, and if you're using a mobility scooter, the upper body won't be moving much, either. The mobility scooter has now reduced you to a very sedentary state, which is very unhealthy, and not just because of the weight gain. Even if you don't gain weight, the new inactive state of your upper body will have the same consequences as lack of exercise for an able-bodied person will: increased risk of various diseases, and shortened life span.

Walking from point A to point B burns calories and gives the body a baseline level of exercise. If you use a wheelchair, the upper body replaces the legs and you will still get a nice baseline level of exercise throughout the day, rolling from point A to point B. If you use a mobility scooter, your shoulders and arms become very passive because all they do is rest, while the hands remain placed on the mobility scooter's front bars for electric control and some subtle steering. Your upper body becomes virtually immobilized with a mobility scooter. So now, the entire body is in a passive state throughout your waking period, and this is detrimental to health and fitness.

The fact that you may be using your upper body, while in the mobility scooter, to do things such as knit, crochet, work in the tool shop, weld, build a birdhouse, bake pies, make bread, etc., should be of no consolation, because these are transient, intermittent activities. Walking is not intermittent because we just do it so often throughout the day. When the arms replace walking, by pushing a wheelchair, this upper body activity is anything but intermittent.

So if your hands are busy while you live in the mobility scooter, don't let that fool you. For all practical purposes, your upper body is still severely being shortchanged. Imagine the exercise baseline you'd be getting if, in addition to baking those pies, building the birdhouse, crocheting, wiping dishes, etc., you were also using your upper body to ambulate by pushing a wheelchair! What great exercise for the upper body!

getting a mobility scooter

The mobility scooter will kill your opportunity for a baseline level of exercise. If you are using a mobility scooter BUT are also doing strength training exercises with weights, this still isn't nearly as beneficial to overall fitness as compared to doing strength training exercises while living life using a manual wheelchair. After all, people who rely on walking to get around every day will still go to the gym and do strength training exercises for their legs.

So if you're thinking of getting a mobility scooter, ask yourself if it's a smart idea to create such a drastic reduction in upper body activity. Yes, mobility scooters will bring you that "freedom," but ask yourself if you really, really need to free your upper body from valuable exercise. And once again, remember: This article pertains ONLY to people with normal upper body function who are capable of using a manual wheelchair, but have been sold by one of those enchanting mobility scooter commercials, or who don't like the idea of using their arms to ambulate, even though their arms and upper body are in good condition. Do you want your upper body to atrophy (lose precious muscle?)

Masters 2021 Live Stream in 4K

Masters 2021 Live Stream in 4K

4K elevates the golf watching experience to a whole new level. And as time passes, more and more people are getting 4k devices and expecting their favorite sports to be available in 4k.

The good news is that the Masters 2021 Live Stream will also be available in 4k. This will boost the quality of broadcasting. All the details on how to watch

What is 4K?



4k also called Ultra HD, refers to display resolution with more than 8 million active pixels. Traditional displays come with a 1080p resolution. 4k is 4x higher than that. This means the picture in this is sharper and clear.

The world has entered the 4k era because of its crystal clear picture quality. That means you can see every detail with high clarity.

Where to Watch Masters 2021 Live Stream In 4K?

Where to Watch Masters 2021 Live Stream In 4K

Producing 4k videos isn't an easy job. It requires more human power and the latest high-end cameras. This is why 4k production is limited.

But the good news is, The Masters 2021 will be available in 4k. It started back in 2018, and after that every year they're also streaming live in 4k.

However, you just can not enjoy the tournament on every channel with Ultra HD resolution. Though a lot of broadcasters will stream the event live, they won't offer 4k. So, where to watch in 4k?

You can enjoy this tournament on Direct TV with Ultra HD resolution. They are broadcasting the Masters in 4k since 2018. And this year they also have the agreement to do that. For 4k streaming, Direct TV will use Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG).

To watch in this resolution, you will have to tune in to channels 105 and 106. The 4k broadcast will start on Thursday at 10 am and end on Sunday. However, not due to limitations of required resources, only a few holes will be available on 4k. They are hole 11, 12, 13, 15 & 16. Others will be in Full HD resolution.

We prefer 4k because in this resolution you can watch every shot with clear detail. If you are a true golf fan, then you will know how amazing it feels to watch the tee-off with this much transparency.

Can I Watch The Masters 2021 Live Stream on My Device?

Can I Watch The Masters 2021 Live Stream on My Device

It is important to know that, to enjoy the clarity of 4k videos, you need to have a device with 4k resolution. If your Tv or whatever device isn't an Ultra HD one, then you will experience the resolution up to what it supports.

But if you want to watch the tournament in 4k, you can get a new TV that supports the resolution. They have become affordable lately. Sony, Samsung, Philips, and many more top brands offer 4k tv at a reasonable price.

Final Thoughts

Recently, 4K videos have revolutionized the sports-watching experience. If you have watched the Masters 2021 Live Stream on Ultra HD screens already, you should know how amazing it is. It's excellent news for us that this year The Masters will be available in 4k. However, if you haven't got a 4k device yet, we highly recommend you to get one to experience the thrill of sports.

Will Hotmail Shut Down Your Email Account?

January 8, 2021
Will Hotmail Shut Down Your Email Account

Did you receive an email stating that your Hotmail email account was being closed? Did it also state that if you responded with the correct verification information that it would not be closed? Did it also give you a time limit within which you must reply, such as 5, or 7 or 14 days? If you did, apparently you are not alone. Several million Hotmail account holders received the same, and similar, emails - and several million Hotmail and Windows Live account holders went into a panic of sorts.

Will Hotmail really shut down 11 year customers?

will Hotmail really shut down 11 year customers

I received many emails like this. As a hotmail account holder with 3 accounts - 2 of which I have had for about a 11 years - this was truly a jarring experience. When I received the first threat, I did not know what this meant. What was I supposed to do? How do I get them to stop? Is it really true? I have thousands of emails on my accounts, with information of tremendous significance. What will happen if they shut it down? Should I open other accounts, such as gmail or yahoo, and copy all the emails, paste them into the new accounts? That would take forever! I'm far too busy, and besides, what if this is a hoax?

Be aware of the phishing hoax

Phishing pertains to the illegal act of intentionally trying to obtain personal information from an individual or company through deception, fraud, or other means. According to RSA, a business security concern, online fraud has been estimated at approximately $4,000 an attack, with over 203,000 phishing attacks in 2019, which represents a 27% increase over 2018. It affects a broad and vast variety of people from all over the world, though, of course, the U.S. leads in being the most phished.

Phishers request your personal information

The email I received asked for my specifics, including name, address, password, and social security number. It arrived on a similar, but not identical, hotmail email letterhead, with logo, fonts, look, and feel all Hotmail. The first thing I did - later to learn it was the incorrect action - was clicking on and opening the email. The act of opening the email is enough in and of itself to hack in to the system, although not likely the goal in this type of phishing scam. After I read the email several times, I observed that there were two spelling errors. Ah ha! There is absolutely no way that Hotmail is going to send out an email to its customers which is not accurately written, edited and proofed. Upon further examination, I realized that the logos were not in the usual places, and that the font itself was a little bit different. It appeared something was up.

hotmail told me they would absolutely not close accounts

Hotmail told me they would absolutely not close accounts

Further research on google revealed that this was indeed a phishing letter, a scam, intended to obtain my information for their personal use. I wrote hotmail at their specific phishing email address, which is abuse@hotmail.com, and sent them a copy of the email. Fast forward a day or so later - hotmail responded stating that they would absolutely never ask for any information from their customers, and, further, that they have absolutely no intentions whatsoever in closing my email account or that of anyone else. They also stated that the information I sent them was actually incomplete - they needed me to resend the letter with the header, which is the information that reveals the source of the email. There were specific directions how to obtain the header and send to them without opening the email itself - a caveat if there were any future phishing letters sent to me.

Every email provider has phishing divisions to contact

I must have been on a phishing list, because indeed, I received dozens of phishing emails over the next months and year. It is possible that when I opened the email it signaled the hacks that I was a possible mark. They were from different sources. Some of the emails were extremely intricate and creative, with moving banners and hotmail information otherwise correct. Usually, though, they were easily and instantly recognizable because of their spelling, grammatical and printing errors and appearance. At first I was a bit angry, but after I understood how to obtain the header, I sent the information to hotmail - or to the specific email provider which was at the source of the sender's email account. Each provider has specific email addresses to contact. It felt good to be a part of the cure instead of feeling victimized. I paid attention to the blocking options on my incoming emails and selected the best filters for my use. I learned not only about phishing, but spam, which will be covered in another article, read more here.
