FAQs S Beam Q: What’s the difference between Android Beam and S Beam? A: Using Android Beam, you can share contacts and calendar info, plus links to apps and other information with another Android™ device that supports NFC. When sharing with another S Beamcapable device, you can still send contacts, calendar events, and links, but you can also quickly share actual files, such as photos, videos, and documents with an S Beam-capable device. The chart below shows what you can send from the Samsung Galaxy Victory™ 4G LTE to other devices. Lock Screen Q: How do I customize the shortcuts shown on the lock screen? A: Lock screen shortcuts make it easier to get to your favorite app when you unlock your phone. You can have up to four shortcuts displayed, and you can rearrange their order. 1. Touch Apps > Settings > Lock Screen with swipe lock. 2. Touch Shortcuts. Reorder the current shortcuts by dragging and dropping them. Delete any shortcut by touching and holding it and then dragging it to the trash can. If you have fewer than three, touch the plus sign to add another one. Select the desired app from the list.
greenhouse vegetables Hydroponic Tomatoes Maximizing yields from hydroponic tomato crops has long been the main objective of commercial growers. However, there’s growing consumer pressure to produce high-quality, great-tasting fruit that stores and handles well in the retail sector. By Lynette Morgan T Top: Properly grown hydroponic tomatoes are often ﬁt to be framed; Bottom: This single-truss crop is being grown on greenhouse benches in NFT. (Photos courtesy of Lynette Morgan) Hydroponic Resource Are you looking to grow more greenhouse vegetables or growing hydroponically? GPN will bring you a few articles a year, but if you want in-depth information year-round, research such as this can be found in The Growing Edge magazine. It is a great resource for hydroponic growers. Visit www.growingedge.com or call (800) 888-6785 for subscription and other information. 78 GPN October 2003 omatoes, the biggest hydroponically produced crop on a worldwide scale, are complex in their physiology and response to crop management techniques since vegetative growth, ﬂowering and fruiting all need to be continually maintained simultaneously on the plant. Obtaining economic yields of highquality fruit while minimizing the use of pesticides and other agrichemicals has put commercial tomato growers under increasing pressure, and many are now looking to modiﬁed hydroponic systems where higher proﬁts are possible. Many of these new tomato-growing techniques involve the production of “spray-free” crops and using organically based systems. Today’s selection includes a wide range of new, fresh tomato products, such as lowacid fruit; on-the-truss, cluster or vine-ripened fruit; and many new....

homesgardens gardenspot The Pleasures of Indoor Gardening A Great Way to Pass a Gray February Day article and photos by Derek Thomas dening, they have not had success with indoor plants. Well, indoor gardening is easy and fun. T he artic air this winter has been persistent. Even the toughest gardeners have hung up their trowels. At the onset of February, although the shortest month, avid gardeners like myself will all agree time seems to crawl and the ﬁnal day of this gray and cold month never quickly comes. For me, February’s impact is softened by time spent with indoor plants. In tending my houseplants, there is always something going on to keep my spirits up: my violets are in bloom while the snow and ice falls against their sunny windowsill; my Meyer lemon has fruit ripening right after the holidays; or my Phalaenopsis orchid spikes and blooms in spite of the frigid scene outside. If it were not for these gems of inspiration, these great indoor garden friends, my winters would most likely be best spent far away from the gray February beast.

If you're a thrifty soul like I am (notice I didn't say cheap), you'll want to save some dough by doing your oil change yourself. It's really easy, doesn't take a lot of muscle or time, and you can spend what you save by doing it yourself on some toys for your bike. Having previously purchased the Honda Service Manual (I figured it oughta come in handy for more than just an oil change), I purchased my supplies to do my own oil change at 4000 miles. I bought the Honda oil filter wrench because you can put a 3/8" drive ratchet on it to loosen or tighten the filter. It's not cheap, but it's a good one-time investment for your bike. If you've ever changed the oil and filter in a 4-wheel vehicle, it's the same concept, everything's just in a different place. Following the Service Manual, here's what I did. All sections italicized are direct quotes from the Honda Service Manual. NOTE: Change the engine oil with the engine warm and the motorcycle on its side stand to assure complete and rapid draining. Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes to warm the oil. Remove the oil dipstick. This provides an air gap for the oil to flow freely while draining. Locate the oil drain plug. It is on the left side, at the bottom of the engine. There is not enough space to use a ratchet, so I used a 17mm combination wrench. The open end included in your bike's toolkit will work fine. Loosen the drain plug, then place a drain pan under the drain plug. Remove the drain plug. Let the oil drain into the drain pan. Now the manual states: With the engine stop switch "OFF", push the starter button for a few seconds to drain any oil which may be left in the engine. NOTE: Do not operate the motor for more than a few seconds.
