Emergency Preparedness: Turn on vital settings on your iPhone and Apple Watch.



I was a Boy Scout leader (long story) so I know to always be ready.

On your smartphone, the right apps can make a huge difference. Here are the essentials you will need in an emergency.

The Apple Watch is a lifesaver, and I don’t mean that you can reply to messages right from your wrist. There is story after story about discovering heart problems or how to contact emergency services after an accident.

Don’t you have it? Your iPhone can do a lot on its own. I’ll show you this first, and then advanced Apple Watch tricks.

1. Sustainability

When your iPhone is in your pocket, the Health app uses special algorithms to evaluate your balance, strength, and gait. You can set up a notification if your resilience level drops. This is important because it may mean that you are more at risk of falling.

Here’s how to set up Steadiness notifications:

open health app and touch your profile top right. If you don’t see your photo or initials, tap Summary or Browse at the bottom, then scroll up.

Tap health checklist.

Click “Configure for Walking stability alerts and follow the instructions on the screen.

Is it safe to carry your phone in your pocket (guys) or bra (women)? Here is my answer.

2. Heart rate variability

Heart rate variability, or HRV, measures the time intervals between heartbeats when you are at rest. Apple Watch checks for an irregular rhythm, sends you a notification, and logs data to the Health app.

Irregular rhythms may indicate atrial fibrillation (AF), when the upper chambers of the heart beat out of sync with the lower chambers. Seriously dangerous stuff.

Here’s how you can check your HRV data:

open health app on your iPhone.

Tap Browse in the lower right corner.

Tap Heart > heart rate variability.

At the top, select to view data by day, week, month, half year, and year.

Here’s how to enable irregular rhythm notifications:

open health app.

Tap Browse in the lower right corner.

Tap Heart > Irregular rhythm notifications.

Once enabled, enable irregular rhythm notifications on or disable in the Apple Watch app on iPhone:

Open the Apple Watch app, tap My watch tabthen go to Heart > Wrong rhythm.

The medical student said the Apple Watch notification helped detect the rare anomaly. Amazing things.

3. High and low heart rate

Your Apple Watch checks for low and high heart rates, which may indicate an underlying medical condition. You can be notified when your heart rate goes above 120 bpm or falls below 40 bpm when you’ve been inactive for 10 minutes.

You can turn on heart rate notifications the first time you open the Heart Rate app on your Apple Watch, or at any time on your iPhone:

open Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

Click My watch tabthen touch Heart.


Tap High heart rate and select BPM.

Tap Low heart rate and select BPM.

4. Respiratory rate

Respiration rate means how many times you breathe per minute. It rises when you exercise and falls when you sleep. When you go to bed with your Apple Watch, it automatically measures and records your breathing rate.

When your breathing rate is significantly higher or lower than usual during sleep, it may indicate an illness or health condition.

To track your breathing rate, you’ll need to set up the sleep features on your iPhone:

open health app on your iPhone.

Tap Begin under Customize sleep and press Next.

Follow the instructions on the screen.

include Track sleep with Apple Watch. This option is available during setup if you’ve paired your Apple Watch with iPhone beforehand. If you pair your Apple Watch after you’ve set it up, you can turn on sleep tracking with your Apple Watch later.

To view the respiratory pulse rate:

open health app on your iPhone.

Tap Browse in the lower right corner of the screen.

Tap respiratory > breathing rate.


Activity rings track your movements, exercises and time spent on your feet. The rings fill up as you move. Drug addict, right?

You can check your daily progress and activity history on your iPhone at any time:

open fitness app on your iPhone.

Tap Activity on the Summary tab to view detailed information about your activity.

Click calendar to see your progress for the month. For more information, tap day.

For information about a workout, such as route or total distance, scroll down to the Workouts section, then tap an item.

Supreme Court investigates property theft case



Geraldine Tyler never thought she would face the US Supreme Court, especially at 94. But she also never thought the government would take over her Minneapolis home and sell it. Ms. Tyler was the victim of what is often called real estate theft, but this form of robbery is not a crime; in fact, it’s legal in a dozen states. The Supreme Court, which is hearing oral arguments on Wednesday at tyler vs hennepin county, has the ability to end these predatory tax losses once and for all.

Ms. Tyler’s problems began when she moved into a nursing home in 2010 and failed to pay her property taxes. She ended up owing Hennepin County approximately $2,300. After paying fines, interest, and related expenses, her debt increased to $15,000. To get what was due to him, Hennepin County confiscated and then sold the one-bedroom apartment for $40,000. You might think that the county will pay off the $15,000 debt and return the $25,000 balance to Ms. Tyler. But the county took all of the $40,000 and left her with nothing to show from her only significant asset.

Fortnite players get a new Coachella style direction



After Deployment Coachella-themed fashion items drop out in Fortnite last year, Coachella expands even further in games with the launch Coachella Islanda new direction in Fortnite that allows players to virtually experience a popular music festival.

Coachella Island kicks off tomorrow, April 14th at 3pm ET. Gamers can find the new destination in Fortnite’s Epic Choice bar or enter the island code: 5449-4207-12803.

Created by the creators of Alliance Studios using creative play mode, the island features a virtual market stall and arts park, as well as desert skies, mountains, polo fields and palm trees inspired by the festival landscape.

The art park has recreated virtual replicas of the festival’s most famous art installations created by the Fortnite community. This includes the Coachella Ferris wheel, Spectra and balloon chains, as well as two new art installations coming to the festival this year and the Fortography Gallery.

Gamers can also participate in creator-created music and art activities such as mini-games and quests. Users can listen to the Icon radio in the game, featuring songs and artists from the 2023 Coachella line-up.

“The future of in-game music and art is not to mimic the real world, but to reimagine magic and make it more accessible with a new medium,” Sam Schoonover, head of innovation at Coachella, said in a statement. “We believe the best way to do this is to give artists the opportunity to show us the way. Just as the IRL festival is a stage for musicians, Coachella Island is now a canvas for game creators. Fortnite provides the tools needed to invite creators and fans to participate in this creative process.”

Like last year, players can purchase Coachella-themed clothing and in-game items from the Fortnite Item Shop. There are two new outfits this year dubbed “Sunset Alto” and “Desert Dawn Lyric”.

The “Desert Dawn Lyric” outfit includes a street print T-shirt, Aurora Visualizer alternate style, Airflow Vibes back embellishment, and an Electropalm Staff pickaxe.

Musical-reactive elements play songs from two Coachella 2023 artists, Bad Bunny and Burna Boy.
