Techy Fact

Japan is known for its cleanliness. In the 1990s, the Japanese company Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions put out an ATM machine that heated the bills to 200 degrees Celsius so that bacteria was killed. Then, it ironed and dispensed them. As a fellow germaphobe, I can appreciate this about Japan! Do you feel as though these ATMs would make a big difference in the germ count in the U.S.?

Google Slides are the answer to so many questions!

What if I get somewhere and forgot my laptop, and I didn't print my presentation?

Log on to Google and access your presentation from your Google Drive!

What if I need to work with someone else on a presentation, but we don't live near each other?

Create a shared Google Slide where both of you can edit it and make changes!

What if I want to have someone proofread my presentation?

Share it on Google Slides and he or she can edit and make changes.

What if my presentation is due by the end of the day, but the file is too big to send, and I don't want to give away my flash drive?

Share a non-editable Google Slide and get it in on time from anywhere, any time!
