October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education. That said, every October we participate in two athletic events that I feel are significant in laying the groundwork necessary for them to be successful in the academic world and in their adult lives.  The first of these events is the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) triathlon, aptly called “The Best Day in Triathlon.” Here’s a brief overview from their website:  “In 1994, three friends started a triathlon fundraiser to help one man regain his independence after a tragic accident left him a quadriplegic. From one came many, and Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) took root in the belief that sports and an active lifestyle are a pathway to more in life. Since that fundraiser 25 years ago, CAF has been committed to breaking the financial barrier that individuals with physical challenges face to participate in sports and live a healthy and active lifestyle.”  Participating alongside challenged athletes in a very tough race gives our kids an additional perspective on their own lives. The racers on the course with them face obstacles that they

How Passpoint Changes the Game

-


Like many parents with school-age kids, you’ll find me most weekends at a neighborhood park or in the bleachers rooting for my son’s teams. Last week I was at my older son’s lacrosse game (go Sea Hawks!) with my younger son in tow. The little guy isn’t exactly the biggest lacrosse fan, but as luck would have it, there was a Time Warner Cable Passpoint Wi-Fi signal at the park, so he was able to get online with his tablet to pass the time. Thanks to a roaming agreement with Time Warner Cable, Boingo subscribers can now access more than 50,000 Wi-Fi hotspots just like the one at the park – absolutely free. And because it was Passpoint-enabled, my son got connected automatically, without the need for a login password or special software. Passpoint is to Wi-Fi what peanut butter is to jelly. Quite simply, Passpoint is new technology that streamlines the process of getting online. No more searching for a signal or fumbling with login screens. Passpoint does all that work for you. It finds and connects to Passpoint-enabled Wi-Fi signals automatically. What’s more, Passpoint offers built-in security, which protects you on open Wi-Fi signals. And it delivers speeds
