Foods that improve concentration

I'll just charge ahead with the list: red apples, cranberries, blue berries, melons, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, plums, avocados, blackberries, red grapes, carrots (eaten raw), onions, beet, red ball pepper, oranges and citrus fruits, red tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, spinach and leafy greens, tea, (small amounts of) chocolate, soybeans, nuts and seeds, eggs, whole grains, liver, salmon, sardines, bluefish, halibut, herring, mackerel, tuna.
Shorter version: spinach, red tomatoes, carrots, strawberries, soybeans, melons, broccoli, liver, salmon, herring, tuna, halibut, mackerel, green tea, whole grains and nuts and seeds.
In addition, glucose might be really helpful for some people who need a short time memory boost, such as for an exam or important meeting. Tea most certainly helps, vitamin B12 supplements are the only memory boosters scientists swear by, and in case you don't like eating fish you could do with an omega-3 supplement.
How did I come up with the above? Well, I've been following health related articles pretty closely for many years now and the list is merely a compilation of the food items that are common to such lists (you can check out MSN's report on Alzheimer's disease; LiveScience reports a 14-day plan to improve memory that actually works, and The Fruit Pages lists stuff you shouldn't eat before an exam). Now you know how horrible my hippocampus is...

How to get rid of the Blogger navbar

There's hardly a Blogger user to be found who hasn't been irked by the navbar. True, it’s not entirely useless – it lets you quickly log on to Blogger and provides a quick customization link. But by just being there the navbar brings a generic look to your blog, which is enough to make readers not take it seriously. On top of that, the navbar allows any Blogger user to flag your blog! (Which, assuming you’re one of the good guys, puts you at the mercy of the goodwill of your diverse readership.)Therefore it’s imperative that you hide your Blogger navbar, or at least know how to. In case you’re wondering, the Blogger Terms of Service doesn’t say anything about the navbar, so you’re good to go.Hiding the Blogger navbar1. Sign in to your Blogger account. This will take you to your Dashboard. Click on the Layout link of your blog.2. Click on the Edit HTML link on the Layout page. Don’t worry, you don’t have to know anything about HTML!

Miscellaneous security software (part 1)

This is part 9 in my Optimizing Broadband|Windows|Firefox series and part 1 of my reviews of miscellaneous security software. Covers anti-spyware, anti-adware, registry cleaners, junk file cleaners, and install monitors.The following aren't really reviews, but should provide you with everything you need to know.

Anti-spyware and anti-adware reviews
Most antivirus applications today come with built-in anti-spywares, so unless you're suspicious something is wrong with your PC you don't need to worry. However, it would be a good idea to install a third-party anti-spyware and anti-adware once in a while to make sure everything's under control. The chief anti-spyware and anti-adware brands are Windows Defender (from Microsoft), Ad-Aware 2007 Free (Lavasoft), AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition (Grisoft) and Spybot S&D (Safer Networking). Note that I haven't mentioned any paid software, such as the popular Spy Sweeper (Webroot Software). It hardly makes any sense to spend m…
