Is Bumble better than Tinder? Whether or not Bumble is better than Tinder is a subjective opinion. It is my personal belief that Bumble is better because it is much is harder to tinker with the backend than it is with Tinder. What I mean, is that Tinder is easy for people to automate with BOTS (software pretending to be a person), while Bumble employs a dual-application layer encryption scheme that only one company (buzzhumble), has been able to exploit thus far.
I was at a crypto-hackathon in 2017 and one of the prize-winners who was an undergraduate security research who called himself Zào. He told me that based off of scraped data from the Tinder API, if you assume that between 5% and 10% of its users are fake or inactive, then Bumble actually has more real-life users.
Bumble has a key difference in functionality. Women must initiate the conversation. This cuts down on “hey, what’s up, yo, wanna see my thing”, type conversations.
I like Bumble because I don’t ever have to worry about creeps who I don’t match with reporting me. If I swipe right on literally ANYONE on Tinder I get an instant match and my phone blows up with d-slinger notifications.
Bumble is classy, secure, and in my opinion, a better company to deal with. Tinder was started by the Match group who has an insidious advertisement methodology. Zao also postulated that 20% of bumbles 1-star reviews on the app market are fake as they seem to be programmatically generated. I wonder who did that?
So in short, the dating app market is dark, and it’s fierce. I prefer a dating app that doesn’t inundate me with unsolicited crap.

We are in the midst of the holiday season with Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas and New Year’s on the way. It is a joyful time, but can also be quite stressful. Throughout this season it is common for people to worry that they may lose the momentum they gained with their workout plans and healthy lifestyles. Holiday parties, seasonal dishes, and drinks make it more challenging to resist the holiday fare and it seems like temptation is everywhere. Today we will be looking at 5 Ways to Stay Active During the Holidays.
Another common challenge is that many people travel for the holidays to meet with friends and family. This can make it challenging to maintain a consistent workout routine. A little planning can make a big difference in maintaining a healthy lifestyle throughout the holiday season.
5 Ways to Stay Active During the Holiday Season:
Dress for Success- While you may be crunched for time, you can still find quick ways to be active. Make it a point to wear comfortable shoes that you can walk in or bring a workout bag with backup shoes. Park further away from the grocery store so that you can get more steps in or walk a lap around the mall before doing your shopping. Little actions add up!
Think Outside the Gym- Just because you may not be able to make it to the gym does not mean that you have to miss a workout. Start your days with light stretching and body weight exercises like squats, jumping jacks, and planks. Utilize FREE online resources like Youtube to get your workout done in the comfort of your own home. Websites like Fitness Blender, Blogilates, and HasFit offer a wide variety of free home workouts.
Set up a challenge– A little accountability goes a long ways. Find a 30 day yoga challenge or a squat challenge and invite your family and friends to join you. Or simplify and try to get the most steps. Most phones come with a step counter. Get creative and cheer each other on.
Find workouts that don’t feel like work– Meet a friend or coworker for a power walk during your lunch hour. Go for a stroll with your dog or your neighbor’s dog. Go ballroom dancing. Try ice skating or rollerskating with friends. Take a Zumba class. Go for a nature walk or a hike. Find fun ways to move your body everyday.
‘Tis the Season to Spread Joy- The holiday season is full of community events and may places have a Turkey Trot run, Jingle Bell run, and a Polar Bear Plunge (for the New Year.) These races are usually 5k (3 miles) or 1 milers (with lots of walkers) and are not very competitive. It is a fun and festive way to stay active and spread joy. Also, going Christmas caroling, and window shopping through your town are fun ways to get out and get moving.
Here are a few more reminders:
Stay Hydrated- It is easy to slack on water intake during the holidays because there are so many options. Water may not seem as desirable when there is hot chocolate, tea, coffee, and festive cocktails. Start your day with a glass of water then carry your water bottle with you and keep filling it. Staying hydrated will also help you to process the holiday goodies more efficiently.
Advocate for your health- People often say “everything in moderation,” but the truth is that not everything is for everyone. Remember that you get to choose what you consume and enjoy. Be mindful of your needs and desires. Just because something is in front of you does not mean that you need it. Eat when you are hungry and make sure that you are consciously making the choice to enjoy your food. If you feel overly tempted then take some time to step away and go for a short walk.
Find ways to stress less- The holiday season, without a doubt can be much more stressful than other times of the year. Stress increases cortisol which leads to inflammation in the body. Find ways to cut down on stress with meditation, yoga, and taking time for you.
Hopefully, now you feel well equipped with ways to stay active this holiday season. If you weren’t looking for 5 Ways to Stay Active During the Holidays, please have a look at some of our other articles below!.
Are you looking for safe pet friendly houseplants? If so, you have come to the right spot. Houseplants have the ability to bring a room to life while purifying the air, but a drawback is that many plants are toxic to animals and children. I have compiled a list of houseplants that are toxic to animals followed by a list of pet friendly plants. Nontoxic plants are a wonderful way to add texture and a pop of color to your space while keeping everyone safe.
I love houseplants, but I have yet to determine whether or not I really have a green thumb. With 5 cats and a property that has children; I want to make sure that my houseplants are not toxic. Here are lists of a few popular plants that are toxic followed by plants that are safe for animals.
Houseplants that are toxic to cats and dogs:
Aloe Plant (Aloe vera) Aloe vera is a useful plant to have in your household, but you may want to think twice before exposing your animals to it. While there are no known reports stating that applying aloe topically is dangerous; if they chew on the plant it may irritate the digestive system.
Jade Plant (Crassula Argentea) The jade plant is a beautiful, rubbery plant that has the reputation of being “hard to kill.” This makes it a good option for folks who do not have a green thumb. Unfortunately, munching on this plant could cause symptoms such as vomiting and a slow heart rate.
Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans) This plant is popular and easy to grow, but it is toxic. If ingested by both dogs and cats, symptoms include: vomiting and appetite loss. In cats specifically, it can cause difficulty breathing and an increased heart rate.
Lilies (Many Varieties) Some varieties can pose a threat to your dog, but cat owners should be avoiding lilies completely. This blossom is extremely toxic to your feline friend and can even cause kidney failure. Symptoms include: appetite loss, drooling, and vomiting.
Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum) I know that I mentioned all lilies above, but the peace lily is another very common houseplant that needs to be addressed. It contains calcium oxalate crystals that can cause drooling, oral irritation, vomiting and difficulty swallowing.
Pothos or “Devil’s Ivy” (Epipremnum aureum) This tropical plant is easy to grow, but poisonous to animals. Symptoms of ingestion include: burning of the tongue and lips, drooling, vomiting, and difficulty breathing.
Dieffenbachia This plant is known for being low-maintenance, but it can cause severe swelling of the mouth and tongue which leads to difficulty breathing and swallowing.
I have always known that there were house plants that were dangerous for pets, but it is good to have a definitive list. Of course, there are more toxic plants, but I decided to include popular household plants. If you love having plants in your home, do not despair! Below is a list of houseplants that are safe for pets.
Pet Friendly House Plants:
Spider Plant This indoor plant is a pet friendly houseplant and a household classic that works well in pots and hanging baskets. It is also a pet friendly house plant.
Areca Palm The Areca palm is known for its air-purifying effects and is easy to care for. It is a popular way to add an indoor tree to your houseplant family. Just make sure that you do not over water.
African Violet (Saintpaulia) This fuzzy plant blossoms year round. Both the leaves and the flowers are non-toxic to cats and dogs. This makes the African Violet a wonderful option for that pop of color.
Money Tree This plant is known for bringing good luck to the home. It is also safe for animals which is a definite plus.
Air Plant (Tillandsia) These plants are nicknamed air plants because they get their nutrients from the air around them. This makes them super manageable and easy to care for. While air plants are non-toxic to pets; they may want to chew on them so keep them out of reach.
Some Varieties of Ferns It can be tricky to identify ferns especially since there are plants that are named ferns, but are not true ferns. True ferns such as the Boston and maidenhair are safe for animals. Beware of toxic misnomers such as the Asparagus Fern which is really a member of the lily family.
Christmas Cactus ‘Tis the season for pet friendly plants! Mistletoe, holly berries, and poinsettia are toxic for animals, but the Christmas Cactus is safe.
Hopefully these lists will help you keep your household full of pet-friendly plants. If you have any other recommended pet friendly houseplants please feel free to send us an email.
Have you tried doing a simple search of yourself online? If not, I would advise you to do a search since there may be loads of your private information on various sites. Depending on the kind of information that is available online you may have absolutely no problem or you may consider it an invasion of your privacy.
MyLife collects personal data
Data is a big business today and there are quite a number of companies aggregating information from various web sources. One of these sites is MyLife.com. MyLife was originally known as Reunion.com a site started in 2002. Their main aim was to allow users to rediscover relatives, friends, lovers and old contacts. It proved quite useful in helping many rebuild family trees and reunite with long lost loved ones.
Reunion.com changed its name to MyLife after merging with Wink, a people search engine. The site has over 50 million registered members. If you had previously signed up on Reunion.com your details could still be on MyLife website.
MyLife.com gives top online search results for a majority of people’s names. The information that this website collects is colossal and a casual search may reveal your:
· current address
· net worth
· phone number
· model of your car
· criminal background
· Legal records
The site also gives people a chance to anonymously leave personal reviews on your character and reputation. This means you can receive positive reviews from people who like you or negative ones by people who may be holding a grudge against you.
MyLife allows you to view, correct, enhance and monitor your personal background report that is available to the public. The company claims that it helps users build their reputation and protect their future. This service aims at helping users improve their relationships, get better jobs, network and take advantage of available opportunities to build their personal and professional lives.
If you are looking to find accurate information on a specific person I suggest reading this article as it tells you how to get useful information rather than anonymous slander.
After the site aggregates all your information the result is a reputation score that the company compares to a credit score. However, unlike a credit score that only reveals how you’ve repaid your loans a reputation score reveals much more about you. A proprietary algorithm is used to calculate your reputation score by using details in your background report and reviews submitted by people who know you. Your reputation score says a lot about your character and people use it to assess you.
Can I Opt-Out of MyLife?
There are quite a number of people who have found inaccurate information on themselves on the site resulting in a misleading reputation score. However, the company allows you to edit details on your page as well as write about yourself. If you care about your reputation you can register for the paid service that gives you more control. In this case, you are allowed to;
· Limit access to your information
· Hide anonymous reviews
· Lock sections
Discovering that your personal information is on MyLife may come as a total surprise. If you are uncomfortable having your information on the site you are at liberty to opt-out of the site. However, it’s important to note that if you are signed up on social networks they may still have access to your information. If you wish to erase your data from MyLife it is advisable that you make your entire data private across all social networks that you are signed up. This can help you avoid a host of problems including;
Fortunately, the truth is Mylife does not know who is searching for you. The only way for them to know is if MyLife.com user who is actively signed is being looked for. MyLife is in the business of reselling user data including search-history of their own users. If you do use mylife, it is important to realize that their information is not accurate.
Mylife has been at the center of multiple lawsuits for deceptive sales tactics including but not limited to:
Falsely advertising that hundreds of millions of people have criminal records
Selling the search histories of their own user base
Seeding profiles with negative reputation scores based off merit-less information
Allowing anonymous users to post negative and damaging reviews
Making it difficult for users to remove these slanderous bodies of text without paying a monthly subscription fee.
Extortion, which is not limited to the taking of property, involves the verbal or written instillation of fear that something will happen to the victim if they do not comply with the extortionist’s will. Mylife is clearly a mass-extortion scheme targeting nearly every man, woman, and child in the United States with the thin veil of a social network. While some people do find the personal contact information of long-lost relatives and friends using MyLife; it is a fact that a very large percentage of their sales come from what is essentially online stalking.
In 2011, there was a popular news story about how My Life claimed it could tell if someone was searching for you and that you could find out for $7.95. Users were shocked when the company actually charged $100 or more and provided literally no information. The lawsuit was filed by California district judge Claudia Wilken who was not pleased with My Life’s action. Jeffrey Tinsley CEO of MyLife stated that he believed that lawsuit was completely without merit.
In the end, MyLife was forced to change its business practices. However, Jeffrey Tinsley has resorted to the same tricks and gimmicks of not only going back on his word and trying the same stunts over and over again with My Life’s unknowing users. My Life now advertises criminal record reports for hundreds of millions of users who have never been in legal trouble whatsoever.
MyLife reported that it had over 60 million active users in 2011. Today, there are pre-generated profiles for over 277,000,000 individuals who gave no consent to the company. Also, nearly every profile contains inaccurate and reputation damaging information. What’s worse is the company propagates these fake profiles into the form of an optimized sitemap which falsely marks each profile as updated on a daily basis all just to keep your information on the front page of google whenever a prospective friend or employer decides to look you up.
So what are you supposed to do about companies like MyLife?
It can sometimes be very difficult to find prosecutors willing to enforce the rules on big websites that aren’t inside their jurisdictions. There are direct legal actions you can take to have your information remove from people finder sites. MyLife will generally comply with cease and desist letters so long as you confirm your identity with their technical support team. They do not provide any streamlined system for doing this and it is very common for them to bounce you around between call-centers with frequent hangups and then ask you to give them money each month in order to hide or modify your profile.
