We are officially a week away from Christmas and if you are like me you probably still don't have a clue what to get your husband. Every time you ask him what he wants or needs the response is a shrug and mumble. Picking a good Christmas gift for a man is a very difficult thing to do, especially for women wanting to opt for something a little more awesome than another dress shirt and bow tie. One safe bet women can make is to buy something auto related because let's face it ladies the only thing men love more than boobs and butts are cars. After doing a little research and few interviews with some male co-workers, here are the top 5 Christmas gifts women can get for their car loving men.
Men are rarely prepared, ever. Thankfully, smart phones and mobile apps such as Google Maps have helped men not get lost quite as much, but when and if an emergency situation ever occurs guys are typically still far from ready to appropriately handle the situation. Therefore, a roadside emergency kit can be the perfect gift for a car loving man and best of all any girl can put this together on the cheap! Simply go down to a local hardware store such as Lowe's or Home Depot and fill your cart with some of the essentials like a flashlight, extra batteries, heat blanket, gloves, portable tool kit, jumper cables, an actual paper map and of course a small bottle of whiskey. This is a great gift for any man and most importantly can potentially save his life in a emergency situation.
One of the most popular gadgets for car lovers are GPS tracking systems. These portable monitoring devices can be placed in the glove box, under a seat or many different locations on a vehicle, tracking the location of that car 24/7. The real-time vehicle GPS device can record travel activity, mileage driven and other information that will make any technology loving man drool. Not to mention, GPS auto tracking devices can also provide theft protection which can help a man quickly locate his beloved car if it is ever stolen.
Okay so this gift doesn't really apply to men living in California or any of the other sunshine states that don't have seasonal weather, but for those men who live in areas where heavy rain, sleet or snow are real issues then a winter driving course can be a pretty cool holiday gift. These courses allow men to basically spin their car out and have a fun time while learning driving techniques that can be life-saving if he is ever operating a vehicle in a bad storm.Last Updated on Friday, 19 December 2014 01:38
Police agencies all over the world routinely call upon GPS monitoring technology to assist in crime fighting activity and investigative work, but the use of real-time GPS systems among businesses has also increased. The primary reason many small businesses are using live tracking technology is theft. Theft can come in many different forms, all of which can leave a negative financial impact on a business. However, sometimes the theft can also just be very, very annoying and that was the case with a doctor in Normandy Park, Washington who was constantly being targeted by thieves who were stealing flower baskets that hung from the front portion of his dental office. Dr. Gilbert simply had enough after his flowers were stolen time and time again, and that was when he decided to contact local police to help assist him in finding the thieves.
Chief Gaddis of the Normandy Park Police Department explained that when Dr. Gilbert contacted them about the flower basket theft that the situation was taken very seriously. The Chief explained that they are funded by taxpayers and therefore take every complaint or request by members of the public with the utmost responsibility. Chief Gaddis stated that Dr. Gilbert was concerned because he felt the flower theft was less about the cost of flowers but rather the intent. Clearly, the theft was consistent and intentional which left Dr. Gilbert concerned the thief could have other malicious thoughts that could lead to something much more serious than petty theft. What was most frustrating to Dr. Gilbert was that he used a hidden camera that was successful in recording the flower basket thief in action, but even with that video evidence the police were unable to identify the man or make an arrest. That was when the Normandy Park Police decided to try using a GPS tracking system.
What Normandy Park Police did was place a real-time GPS tracking device inside one of the hanging flower baskets outside of Dr. Gilbert's office. The tracker system was then programmed to send an alert if the flower basket was stolen and would also provide live GPS locational data that could help police catch the thief. After two months the live GPS system sat in the flower basket without any movement. Then when police began thinking that the plan would not be successful the real-time GPS sent a email alert that the flower basket was stolen.
After Normandy Park officers received the email alert from the real-time GPS that the flower basket had been stolen they quickly grabbed an iPad and began tracking the stolen property. What the online mapping program showed was that the flower basket had been moved to a residential home in Des Moines, Washigton.
When Normandy Park police officers arrived at the scene of the Des Moines residence they not only saw the stolen flower basket that was equipped with the live GPS tracking system but also the other missing flower baskets (total of 5). The man arrested was Frank Todaro who now faces counts of both trespassing and theft. Although Todaro admits to the criminal behavior he did not say why he was specifically targeting Dr. Gilbert's dental office.
After the successful use of live GPS technology to catch a local thief, Normandy Park police are considering using the real-time GPS systems to assist in other theft related cases such as those that occur frequently during the holiday season with gifts and other packages.Last Updated on Thursday, 04 December 2014 23:13
When a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri stopped two teenagers walking in the middle of the street no one could have imagined the events that would happen next and how they would shake public opinion. Although the events are not concrete and have many shades of ambiguity, what is believed to occurred was that one of the teens who was fresh off of a store robbery violently attacked the responding police officer. Seconds after that assault on the police officer gun shots were fired and a young black teenager by the name of Michael Brown lay dead in the street. The Ferguson story has resulted in the surfacing of tensions between the black community and a predominately white law enforcement in the region and the outcome has been protests and rioting. Although tensions have simmered down as time has passed, a Grand Jury verdict on whether or not the officer involved in the case, Darren Wilson, should be convicted of a crime could spark more violence and unrest. This is why just ahead of the Grand Jury ruling the National Guard has been called and in all likelihood call upon the use of GPS tracking systems to assist in keeping the peace.
Police enforcement commonly use technology to assist them in both fighting crime and keeping the peace. Many of these tools such as bulletproof vests, weaponry and spy cameras are familiar to citizens but what many people may not know is that GPS vehicle tracking systems are also frequently used by the men in blue. Real-time GPS monitoring can be utilized in two different fashions among police: internal fleet tracking of squad cars and as a mechanism to oversee activity of vehicles operated by known felons.
GPS devices are helpful for fleet tracking because it allows operations managers the ability to see where every vehicle in their fleet is located. This helps reduce arrival times for police, getting them to the scene of a crime in the shortest time possible which in many cases can be life-saving. Vehicle management of squad cars is a fantastic use of GPS satellite technology but another way that GPS tracker systems are providing assistance to police is through vehicle surveillance. This is because when a passive or live GPS is equipped on the vehicle of a felon, suspected criminal or other possible threat, police can see exactly what that individual is doing. This can give police a leg up on criminal activity which is vital in areas where bad things can occur such as the situation brewing in Ferguson, Missouri.Last Updated on Tuesday, 18 November 2014 22:33
Pharmaceutical companies provide a valuable service to Americans all across the nation. The brains behind pharmaceutical businesses are what provide us with antibiotics when we are sick, pain relief when we are hurt and medication that can literally extend or in many cases save our lives. And let's not forget about the other pharmaceutical medications that can improve muscle function, hair growth or even improve our sex life. There is no denying that the pharmaceutical industry has been helpful in almost everyone's life but with some medications having so much value many pharmacies and their delivery vehicles are now being targeted by thieves. Theft is becoming a huge problem for pharmacies all across the country and now the reason why pharmacies are taking action with GPS tracking system technology.
Theft is a problem in most industries but has been significantly problematic for pharmacies transporting pharmaceuticals. For example, recently a driver simply trying to deliver pharmaceuticals to a pharmacy located in a suburb of Detroit had a gun pointed to his head, was then tied up and taken for a ride. The terrified driver had a bag placed over his head where he was dropped off at a vacant lot, still tied up. The thieves stole all of the cargo in the pharmacy truck then torched the vehicle to ashes. The investigation concluded that the entire event was based on the robbers wanting pharmaceutical pills such as OxyContin, Vicodin and other pain management medication abuse that has been increasingly popular on the streets. The statistics are getting worse as prescription drugs are becoming the drug of choice of many teens and adults. In fact, in the state of Maine from 2009-2013 there were approximately 175,000 incidents of theft related to pharmaceuticals with approximately 40% being strong armed robbery.
GPS tracking is now commonplace in many industries, especially those where vehicle management can help enhance productivity and safety. GPS vehicle locator technology is a rather simple concept involving 3 steps:
1. GPS tracker is placed on company vehicle
2. Tracker reports live GPS tracking data
3. User can view real-time GPS tracking data 24/7
This fleet tracking technology is often used to record mileage driven by employees, determine if a company driver is misusing company equipment or simply a way to enhance automotive security in an effort to prevent theft. However, the locational technology is also proving to be a valuable asset among pharmaceutical companies seeking a way to help them keep cargo, vehicles and drivers safe.Last Updated on Tuesday, 04 November 2014 20:23
