In spirit of Open Source week here @ the Technology community on Vingle, I would like to share with all of you 11 utilities for Ubunto, as mentioned in the OMG Ubuntu blog [1]. I recently tried out Ubuntu, thanks to @patrickballeux, so if any of you have personally tried any of these, I would enjoy hearing your feedback and thoughts. 1. Unity Tweak Tool This is the settings manager for the Unity desktop, making it one of the most important tools for you to customize your desktop. There are many toggles and switches that allow you to change settings and customize your Ubuntu experience. It is free and available in the Software Center Link: http://bit.ly/1xHFmlQ . 2. Unity Privacy Indicator The privacy indicator let's you know which files, folders, or services are being accessed, logged, and recce'd. Features include: * Toggle Online Search Results, Zeitgeist, HUD Logging & GeoIP * Quick access to clean Zeitgeist, F2, Recent Files, etc. * Options to show/hide desktop icons and name in the panel Link: http://bit.ly/1FrH8Oj 3. Unity Folders Unity folders let you organize your apps into folders in the Unity Launcher. Some features include * Create as many folders as you like * Choose custom or auto-generated folder icon * 3 folder layouts to choose from * Set custom icons for apps added to folders * Edit existing folders 4. Caffeine Caffeine allows you to stop your screensaver or lock-in screen quickly. You can check it out at: https://launchpad.net/caffeine/ 5. System Monitor Indicator The System Monitor Indicator (also known as indicator-multiload) is available at the Ubuntu Software Center. It allows you to see stats for apps, processes and hardware status, GPU temperature, network status, and more. 6. TLP (Power Saving Tool) TLP is a tool you can use to prolong your battery life when running Linux. You can adjust various settings such as system processes and harddrive, enabling Wi-Fi power saving mode, runtime power, and more. Link: http://bit.ly/1B1zURb 7. Laptop Mode Tools This tool is another battery saver that is less complicated than TLP. It is available in the Ubuntu Software Center. Note that you cannot have Laptop Mode Tools and TLP at the same time. Link: http://bit.ly/1vvMSDm 8. Intel Graphics Installer This is important for everyone who wants to install their Intel GPU drivers. Link: http://bit.ly/1z3dsmC 9. I-Nex - Hardware Stats I-Nex makes viewing your hardware stats much easier. This tool is extremely useful if you want to upgrade parts and check the status of your computer's performance.

Super helpful if you have a partitioned drive or if you have limited space that you want to manage. 11. BleachBit (Cruft Cleaner) If you are a Windows user, Bleachbit is comparable to CCleaner. This program allows you to scan, clean, empty out folders and bloated caches, etc. It's known to be quick and effortless. Link:http://bit.ly/1rF8kGO I hope you found these utilities useful. Being a recent Ubuntu convert, I'd love to hear some feedback from Ubuntu users. Do you use these tools? Are there tools that you use that are not on this list?

There are many physiological and mental benefits associated with physical activities and fitness. Indeed, many studies confirm the irrefutable effectiveness of regular exercises. Regular physical activities are beneficial to the heart, muscles, lungs, bones, and brain. Exercising improves many aspects of your life. In addition to the extensive benefits of physical activities, there are several advantages that are specific to EMS workout suit Undeniably, the growing popularity of this new technology is primarily due to benefits specific to EMS. EMS workout benefits include; Physiological EMS Workout Benefits Many people exercise for physiological benefits that include improvement in muscle strength and boost of endurance. There are several physiological benefits that are specific to EMS workouts and include; EMS Workout Benefits to muscles EMS training facilitates better muscle activation, enabling your body to use 90% of its potential, unlike conventional training, where you only use 60-70% of your strength. Similarly, EMS increases muscle mass due to the extra stimulation. Benefits to Tendons and Joints Since you do not need to use external loads to achieve deep muscle activation during EMS training, the strain on tendons and joints significantly reduces. Indeed, since EMS workouts are grounded on electrical stimulation and not heavy loads, there is no additional strain on joints and the musculoskeletal system. Vascular and capillary benefits EMS workout benefits the cardiovascular system. Specifically, EMS workouts support improved blood circulation and, as such, reduction in blood pressure. Similarly, improved blood flow decreases the formation of arterial clots reducing vulnerability to heart attack and cerebral thrombosis. Research shows EMS training suit increases blood flow (especially when done in lower frequencies) to muscle tissues. The electrical impulses sent to the full-body suit support blood flow through the contraction and relaxation of muscles. Posture-related Benefits EMS training work the stabilizer muscles correcting and improving posture. Correct body posture is essential in well-being. Incorrect posture is associated with muscular pain due to decompensating. EMS workouts specifically target and train difficult-to-reach stabilizer muscles, reducing postural imbalances of the back, tummy, or pelvic floor. Improvement in overall posture and flexibility reduces muscle pain. EMS Workout Benefits to Mental Health A multitude of research supports the hypothesis that exercising improves mental health. Working out facilitates the secretion of three hormones; endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin. These hormones generate chemical reactions in the brain responsible for that satisfied and happy feeling you get during and after working out. EMS is a high-intensity workout that triggers the release of dopamine a few minutes into the training. Dopamine helps you become more alert and focused, improving performance. After an EMS workout session, the body releases serotonin. Serotonin regulates body temperature in addition to adjusting the imbalances in the nutritional cycle. Ultimately, EMS improves mental health by triggering the release of certain hormones that lighten the mood, relieve stress and dull pain. EMS training is your ingredient of happiness! Time-Saving With EMS training, you can achieve a full-body workout in a mere 20 minutes. Indeed, the EMS full-body suit simultaneously activates many muscles in the body, effectively reducing training time. Fast Results The benefits of regular exercises are achieved much faster with EMS workouts compared to conventional training. Due to robust muscular activation, the results of EMS workouts are evident much quickly. EMS workout benefits are not only physiological but also mental. EMS training enables you to enjoy these benefits with a mere 20-minute workout thrice a week! For more visit our eBay store.
