Meeting Agenda For April & May 2019

April 2 - You, Your Tech Devices and Ergonomics

We are welcoming Judy Taylour back with a presentation that has help for all of us. We may not be thinking about the following these days, but we should.

Sit straight! Shoulders rounded! Arms relaxed! Feet on floor! Wrists/hands floating! Cumulative trauma! Repetitive stress syndrome!

We have all been using technology for many years; are we still practicing good ergonomics? Or, are we stressing our bodies every day without realizing it by extending our wrists, slouching, sitting without foot support and bending our head to look at poorly placed monitors?

Along the way we started using tablets and smart phones which have a different set of ergonomic issues.

This presentation will take us down memory lane on computer ergonomics and give us ideas on proper use of our tablets and smart phones.

April 9 - Board Meeting

The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting. In case you aren’t aware of it, our board meetings are open to all members. So if there is something on your mind, an idea you’d like to introduce, or a gripe (gosh, I hope not), you are welcome to come share it with us.

All members are welcome to attend. You don't have to be a Board member.

We meet for dinner at 6:00 p.m., meeting begins at 7:00, in the conference room of the Horseless Carriage Restaurant, Galpin Ford, 15505 Roscoe Blvd., North Hills.

April 16 - Cooper Products and More

>You may remember when Christopher came to show us his new computer tablet cleaning cloth. It was an innovative device designed to clean the glass screen of electronic tablets, cell phones, laptops, navigation screens and eyewear, constructed of rugged elastic and high grade microfiber. It was formatted to fit 7-13" tablets. This product is a proven concept that has sold more than 25,000 units.

Christopher Cooper has accepted our invitation to return after a long absence. He says, “We pivoted our firm toward air fresheners for use primarily in cars. Our FreshandWipe brand is also used in homes, office or gym bags. Come see and learn about his current products. www.cooper-product.com

The Microfiber encased air freshener is an innovative device designed to perform two functions. It provides air freshening for small areas such as inside a vehicle or office while the Microfiber shell provides a method to clean smooth surfaces found in vehicles and offices.

Also, “I am in the last year of my career with LAFD. As such I can speak briefly and update your members on the current issues with the Department.”

It will be an interesting evening with one of our best speakers!

 

 

April 23 - TUGNET Dining Event

This is National Picinic Day. Even though we may not be eating outside we can still get together for dinner.

Attend our meeting, watch your email or check back here for further details .

They give a generous 20% to organizations like TUGNET who schedule a dining event. This is a well-liked restaurant by many of our members so we hope to visit periodically during this year. We will be meeting in the banquet room.

Here is your opportunity to help TUGNET while you enjoy a lovely, healthy meal with no preparation or clean-up. Really — what can be better than that?

Most get there between 5:30 & 6 p.m. Hope to see you there.

There are servers waiting for you — I think it’s called a win-win!

Try to come as the number of guests always an influence as to whether we can return.
See you there!

It's always more fun eating together!

May 7 - Kingston Technology

In case you don’t know or have forgotten, Kingston Technology is the largest independent manufacturer of memory products. There are a number of memory products that you may have purchased under a different name but are actually Kingston products.

Our good friend, Louis Kaneshiro, will be here to explain it to you. He has been an employee for many years and often brings a friend along to add to the presentation.

He will be coming from Fountain Valley, the headquarters of Kingston, and will tell you that in 1987 Kingston entered the market with a single product. Founders John Tu and David Sun fulfilled a severe shortage of surface mount memory chips with a memory module that would serve to redefine industry standards for years to come.

Combining one of the most extensive and stringent testing processes in the memory industry, an exceptional free tech support center and a consistent roll-out of innovative technologies, Kingston Technology has continually set industry standards of quality and reliability throughout its history.

Do come to hear his very interesting presentation. Louis told me he has some “cool stuff” to talk about. He is always glad to answer questions and we usually have a lively discussion. This is a meeting you shouldn’t miss.

May 14 - Board Meeting

The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting. In case you aren’t aware of it, our board meetings are open to all members. So if there is something on your mind, an idea you’d like to introduce, or a gripe (gosh, I hope not), you are welcome to come share it with us.

All members are welcome to attend. You don't have to be a Board member.

We meet for dinner at 6:00 p.m., meeting begins at 7:00, in the conference room of the Horseless Carriage Restaurant, Galpin Ford, 15505 Roscoe Blvd., North Hills.

May 21 - FBI

What organization is our speaker going to be representing?
Are they going to be from the:
Flying Bikes Industries,
Fender Bender International,
From Big the Island,
Fungus, Bacteria and Invertebrates,
Found Beer Inside,
or Finally Blew It?

Give up?

Our speaker is going to be from the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation).

We are looking forward to meeting a representative from the FBI. I doubt any one reading this will not be familiar with the FBI since they have been in the news so much lately.

We will not be hearing about any of that, however. The presentation will be directed toward topics particularly important to seniors, although the information will apply to everyone.

It has been years since we’ve had a spokesperson from the FBI so don’t miss this opportunity.

Lookimg forward to seeing everyone at this meeting as their speaker is always very entertaining, interesting and informative!
