tomorrow's the day we'll play something besides video games. every day is a gift. especially for people with heart failure. but today there's entresto... a breakthrough medicine that can help make more tomorrows possible. tomorrow, i want to see teddy bait his first hook. in the largest heart failure study ever, entresto was proven to help more people stay alive and out of the hospital than a leading heart failure medicine. women who are pregnant must not take entresto. it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby. don't take entresto with an ace inhibitor or aliskiren.
if you've had angioedema while taking an ace or arb medicine, don't take entresto. the most serious side effects are angioedema, low blood pressure, kidney problems, or high potassium in your blood. tomorrow, i'm gonna step out with my favorite girl. ask your doctor about entresto. and help make the gift of tomorrow possible.
if you don't sell your old phone or tablet or hand it down to the kid it likely ends up here in the junk drawer or tossed in a closet just sitting collecting dust you can put that paperweight to use. here's some ideas there are several apps that will turn your old phone or tablet into a free home monitoring security camera. camio is one i have used that works well. you just place your phone in your home somewhere, have it plugged in to keep it juiced, and connected to your home wifi
and then through the app anytime you want you can view your live video feed on your current smartphone or thorugh other devices. stand up - you could leave your old device in the car to act like a dedicated gps unit free apps like maps dot me use offline mapping. so no wifi or cell service is needed to get you around it's not as detailed and accurate as google maps but for basic getting around finding nearby businesses and places it works well. you can turn your old tablet into a high end digital photo frame mount it on your wall or have it sitting on your desk at work most tablets will let you do this with the basic built in photo library application
but there are also apps like "dayframe" that will automatically pull pictures from facebook and instagram and display those as your family and friends post them i know there are a lot of other uses out there that i didn't show. or think of if you are re=purposing your old device in a creative or unique way please share it with me i love talking about this stuff. back to you guys. ahead at eight. we're hearing from the mother of a man who was brutally stabbing in front of his children inside a hayward target. and it's been a rough year for police departments in the bay area. we have a rundown of all the scandals that hit the san francisco department in 2016. plus how you can get starbucks for free this week.
