Power of Social Media to Do Good
Even in this case which involved public shaming, social media had a role in creating a positive effect on a family. Seems a woman took to Facebook to post what she thought was a vagrant sleeping at a fast food booth. Then the story got out about the man and the community responded with help.

Affect the Effect of Your Writing-
Two words that almost sound alike and save for one letter are spelled alike: affect and effect. But with different meanings that often enough novice and even experienced writers use incorrectly. I have some tips.

“Affect begins with “a” as do act (upon) and alter. Remember that!
Effect begins with “e” as do event and end (result). Remember that!” – Anthony Scialis

Installing iOS 13 On Your Phone Today-
Can’t wait for official release in September? Beta is available now. Just a few steps is all it takes.

“The new iOS 13 comes with an abundance of features such as dark mode, which allows users to make the screen easier on the eyes by switching all lights off. Then, a powerful camera upgrade, allowing instant changes in intensity of lighting in portrait mode, couple with a more curated view of the moments (aka pictures) on your phone. Most importantly the new iOS 13 offers single sign on options, by using your Apple ID.” – Villy Devlioti, writing for WERSM
