-- Out of whatever it pulled out and welcome to fox is dot com lots of where -- with -- senate Tuesday afternoon.
And a topic of this show is all about finding solutions to problems that we face the show's called solution America.
And we examine subjects big and small problems that are.
Really very consequential and others that are maybe not so consequential but they do have.
An important bearing on the lives of everybody out there so we introduce you not only -- the problem but to the folks who are out there trying to work on solutions.
To come up with ways to solve those problems and today we've got three important things to talk to you about we're gonna talk about extending the life of your home computer.
We're talk about young voters in ways that they can have a louder voice this election season.
We're also gonna talk about.
Back to school and a safe way in May be stylish way.
For -- for young people to carry their books to and from their classroom so we'll talk about those three things.
And we're glad you're with us some also logged into the chat so you can feel free to join us.
And China and if you've got any questions or comments.
We want to hear them and I'll try to work as many of them into the show as I possibly can you find me on Twitter am grateful -- and without further ado let's say how to Jason Johnson.
Who's president of a company called -- -- bit.
And you can find them on line it I will bit dot com Jason nice talk -- -- thanks very much for joining us.
Thank you Rick from me -- today OK so.
You're company aims to find.
A solution of the problem -- -- -- trip for people out there who were worried or upset that their computer is extremely low the solution.
We've got some tips -- courtesy Jason so our first of all why do computers.
Sort of slow down.
Do that -- question so over time we we install more more software we we download music and movies and documents and and all that all that activity.
-- down the computer makes it slower in in and perform less less officially for us.
And so people would typically get a message that would come up on their computer if they don't.
Noticed that the computer's not functioning as well they've.
I remember -- when I had a PC.
That I would get a little note that would sit there -- some of the pop up note that would tell me that.
My memory was running low and that that was one of the things I could do.
By sort of helping out maybe deleting files that I didn't necessarily need that might speed up the computer is that right.
That's right -- civility unnecessary files as is one of of multiple things you can do -- try to extend the life of your PCN.
And that maybe part off per person -- -- the PC which is what what people do they they they -- -- slow they just to school by a brand new one but in these economic times.
Of course that's not you know the easy thing for many of us to do.
Let's go through a couple of the tips that you're providing for folks today the first what is to keep your hardware in a clean and cool environment why -- -- so important.
Yes so so the the mechanisms inside the computer the -- processor and the the memory of the hard drive.
These are very heat sensitive components and we often find PCs you know underneath desks and covered by books surrounded by pillows and and the more heat that there is is can can constraining those components.
That them the less likely they'll perform well.
And the closer they are to their to their failure time these things will fail over time if they are if there confined by heat.
The next tip that you give -- to clean out we talk a little bit about this clean out.
Old registry files cookies.
Temporary files -- you find this stuff on your PC Jason.
Yes so as as you surf the Internet your downloading pictures that are stored in your temporary Internet files cash.
Here you're -- cookies.
You're you're you're you're downloading content that -- sits there on your hard drive and you can from time to time manually.
Go in and remove that that that -- yourself or you can use software that'll do that for you automatically perpetually.
What do you think about external hard drives for folks.
You know these days everybody's got some kind of an MP3 player.
Everyone's taking digital photos -- take up a lot of storage space.
Do you recommend to people.
Maybe go get an external drive where you can store all that stuff and not have it sort of bog down the hard drive on your computer.
Well it's a very question.
Its interest in because many of the computers people purchased in the past few years have very large hard drives they're very very good capacity.
What would -- it turns out of which is clean them up and just maintain and we ash and a lot more files on there.
But of course if you're shooting really large pictures in and have.
Very large music or movie collections and external hard drive is a very convenient and and fairly inexpensive way to expand -- capacity.
Defrag and make your hard drive is another one -- what does that mean.
Yes so you know a hard drive is just like you -- -- thing you organize may be your your desk at work and as you as you get more more documents in the clutter your your desk at work and shove things in drawers.
It becomes more more difficult to find things -- they're not organized you know carefully.
And so there's this thing called.
Basically goes through your hard drive in reorganize everything and -- sufficient way that when you go to axis that programmer that document.
It it can you computer could find it very quickly in open different quickly for you.
But we need to do that on a regular basis again either manually or using software to do it for you.
Speaking of software there and is also software that sort of security spyware.
A lot of people subscribe to these things McAfee of course is one of them there are a lot of other ones on the market.
That will scan your computer and look for any malware -- viruses that are out there and that's going to be an important thing to write.
Absolutely -- -- did a study earlier this year that said.
One in five PCs do not have any kind of malware software protection that is that is.
Those those 40% of PCs are completely unprotected from any kinds of out.
Outside threats that may into the computer viruses spyware.
Things that can cause quite a lot of average.
It used to be that apple computers were were the favorite of some because it was thought.
That they were sort of in impenetrable that that these these malware isn't and viruses couldn't get their way onto.
Ate an Apple Computer is that still the case.
That that is actually not the case anymore.
I I've seen recent studies we've shown that.
The Mac OS is becoming.
More more prone to these types of threats like any other PC and so the the software titles to protect Macs are.
Are coming out on out on on a weekly basis almost.
A lot of times that computer.
Company will send out some kind of a patch that you can download.
The security patch or something that they've updated and you have to click on it make sure that.
To make sure that your heart your heart where.
Is up to date.
You recommend people do that and what tips can you give the folks -- I understand that there are some viruses out there that try to mimic the look.
These patch update to the people think that they're actually clicking on something from their computer maker when in fact there -- actually allowing a virus on to their -- Computer.
That's right -- -- -- exactly correct these these these these nefarious characters out there I was with.
With certain web sites will try to get you click on things that if you click on it.
It will in fact -- cause harm the economy harm your computer or at least you take some of your personal information.
So -- again having software.
That that that is regularly being updated to watch out for these types of web sites.
And and that is in fact why as you mentioned earlier that's -- -- the software -- including.
Our software advanced system care.
Is is is needing to be constantly updated their subscriptions so what's the -- -- to buy a piece of software and and you know that you could use it -- long as you wanted.
But it's becoming more more common this software has this annual subscription model.
So that it stays.
Most up to date and most.
Effective -- been in this case protecting you.
What -- question Jason and we would -- to a check out idol that dot com to learn more about your company your last -- select your hardware rest what do you mean.
Yes so you know just like -- -- -- machine we have maybe our our cars you know it's.
-- it's it's a machine and it needs time to rest just like we wouldn't leave our our car running for 24 hours a day.
Leaving your PC running for 24 hours today is is not in the best interest of of those components so.
It is good to to shut down your computer from time to time and given a chance to cool down and rest in between usage.
Jason Johnson is the president of.
I -- -- you can find them online Kyle bit dot com on Twitter -- handle is that I -- soft -- to talk to Jason thanks so much for that helpful information.
My pleasure thank you -- And we got a comment here from someone in the chat room can you read this if you want to extend the life of your PC that you need to back up the entire hard drive to.
Include the operating system on a bootable external hard drive so.
That's tip from one of our viewers out there we appreciate you sending it in and we're gonna take quick break when we come back we're gonna talk about young people 35.
I guess 35 to eighteen if to be voting age so young voters and ways for them to engage in the process.
We'll talk about that we've got someone who's worked on a solution we'll share that with you -- -- come right back on solution America don't go away.
Welcome back I'm -- -- I'm glad you're with us well for a lot of folks this election season -- -- first time that they're actually getting a chance to vote.
For the president -- remember my first presidential election the first that I was eligible to vote and it's a very.
Exciting time and a lot of young people are engaged in the process.
Not as engaged as they'd like to be so the problem here young voters looking for a greater voice in politics the solution.
College grassroots movements Charlie -- is the founder of turning point USA and you can find them on Twitter at turning point USA.
They're online at WWW turning point -- dot net good to see Charlie thanks very much for being with us today.
A -- -- and so how engaged our young people.
Well you know its interest staying the younger people today the kind of disillusioned with the two party system I would say that.
My age bracket from eighteen to about thirty they stand more unprincipled and party I think they want to get engaged they want to understand the issues but.
They're tired of governor Romney and President Obama.
Talking about non issues tax returns and things that really are not relevant to that so the way that the problem as you match before so none of young people are involved the solution is to make it relevant and fun that's a turning point USA is doing talk to us more how to at a turning point USA and make politics more.
Relevant and fun for this younger generation.
Well on our FaceBook page and I Twitter we're getting to younger people -- thousands at a time -- reach of hundreds of thousands each week we're using these things called means.
And there kind of funny satirical pictures.
That depicts a political characters in ways that is humorous or you know in funny in certain ways and we -- contests we have.
We offer prizes for people that put up means and the best -- gets close our FaceBook page.
And people -- dying days -- -- younger generations really think it's interesting way of looking at politics instead of just talking about.
You know the -- policy that we try to get the first put through the door using humor in these satirical pictures.
I'm wondering about you organizations.
Political leanings are you partisan in any way or you are nonpartisan organization.
We're nonpartisan we consider -- a generational movement.
The Republicans have been big spenders or Democrats -- big spenders we focus on one big -- and that's the stop generational theft.
And to restore the fiscal health -- health of this country.
We're open to solutions on both sides of the aisle it's not a Republican or Democrat issue it's an American one and quite frankly -- -- medical want and that's what our organization stands up.
To talk to me about the kind of presence that you have -- obviously college campuses.
Our our prime that's exactly.
You know sort of the age group that you're going after.
College Republican club college Democrat club those have always been.
You know pretty strong well influences -- a lot of campuses around the country.
Tell us about turning point USA and and how many campuses you -- you were active -- We're -- -- about fifteen campuses and we're growing very very quickly and keep in mind we launched June 5 so to have that many.
A college chapters -- that short amount of time is quite substantial but also it's a second that a lot of kids are coming to turning point USA because they don't wanna be part of the Republicans that Democrats they want to find common sense solutions that are nonpartisan independent that would get us forward -- the bickering on both sides of the -- and that's what they're finding not turning point USA.
You know a lot of voters out there no matter how old they are whether they're young voters or whether they've been voting for for a long time.
I think what -- find the facts you know and I found this in and my work to that you know you can go online and you can look up.
Any topic under the sun you name it and you'll find people who are telling you what what they think the facts are on any given topic and yet.
You know you've really got to sort of dig down to find out the political leanings or the angle of those people who are providing the information because there's there's always an angle there.
How do you recommend to young people.
Or -- any voter for that matter.
To find out information that's not being -- in one way or another but actually get to that to the bottom of the issues that people care most about.
Well my suggestion -- younger people or anybody that wants to researchers don't just go to one source even -- a source says are nonpartisan.
Double checked it go to it several different think tanks I mean we can go to news outlets but you want to back it up.
You can go to certain think tanks that say they're nonpartisan but go to another think tank -- see there.
Our report the CBO is always very reliable but they change their numbers up a lot so as far as that that the public debt is approaching sixteen -- -- there's -- different ways a look at it.
Different think -- -- the heartland institute says.
Unfunded liabilities exceed a 130 trillion dollars but -- think tanks so there's a Brookings they say it's -- 98 truancy got to back it up.
And how we can we recommend CBO but those studies we -- -- always nonpartisan we're gonna try to turn into a think tank and some sorts.
For the generational movement for younger Americans your high school senior Charlie.
Just graduated eighteen years old congratulations and are you about to start college.
I'm taking one semester off I'll be had in civilian diversity.
In January and doing a lot of exciting things to fall hosting debates across the midwest getting more college chapters started its once in -- lifetime opportunity we're gonna season.
Good for you.
-- me about they have the future I mean obviously got an election coming up in November what happens to turning point USA.
After November the sixth.
This is not just the flash in the pan movement we're gonna become an institution.
We have an organization set up of young adults and no other people that have had experience to help us get set out.
And we're -- -- become the voice for younger Americans people that want to be able to represented.
To give them the power in the confidence to stand up and let their voice be heard and it's not gonna just be.
We're not gonna and then November sex -- -- -- -- for years to come -- institution that people.
No look -- to get advice from for how the younger electorate is a leaning towards a sense for nonpartisan independent.
We're gonna have staying power there's no matter what power a whatever party is in the White House or congress were always going to be constant awareness and a principle and -- and party.
We've got a couple of pulls a Fox News obviously does a lot of polling and earlier this month we talked to young people voters under the age of 35.
About some of the some of the issues that that they're concerned about and of course their opinion of the of the presidential race so the question is how -- the economy be.
To your vote.
For president 93% of folks said that the economy was either extremely or very important to them as they make up their mind.
And I guess that would probably mimic Charlie there have been.
Do you have a lot of a lot of voters of all different age groups -- that -- this is really going to be an election about the economy right.
You had some.
-- to visions of what president Obama and governor Romney's coming forward but -- my generation really wants is they want.
The adults to start taking adult approach the solutions that's are making the economy the forefront.
And as we should be talking about not tax returns.
Not you know what congressman Ryan might aside ten years ago but rather who has the better vision for America.
And my generation we released the -- is while there's -- -- -- and 87%.
Other people we polled -- -- age demographic it was only eighteen point four -- the most important issue facing -- the debt the deficit and the economy to fiscal issues we're trying to express that.
Two people across country.
Well the other question we asked folks since the economy was so important according to.
The poll is which candidate do you trust more.
To actually improve the economy and 51%.
As opposed to 38% said President Obama over governor Romney.
Why do you think this young generation of voters is so -- -- With President Obama.
Really if you look at his record on the economy they really are not a lot highlights.
To brag about over the last four years.
Well we kind of look at it and we did an assessment and here's my own opinion on what can point -- -- -- thanks as first of all -- Obama has 27 million likes on FaceBook and millions of followers on Twitter.
That alone he reaches.
A plethora of younger voters and if you look at the demographic than most people -- have liked his FaceBook page.
Are eighteen to 24 year old so every time he posts a picture or update.
My generation gets bombarded with that material so there naturally inclined also a lot of public schools are not necessarily.
Putting forth the truth about the Obama economy and I -- that a lot while I was in high school trying to get make sure that the right studies are put forward.
And finally a lot of kids still think Obama is a likable character and they're voting like they're voting on American Idol and that's not what this says.
They're voting on who the coolest person is was the most.
Dazzle but that's not what voting for presidents about it's not a referendum on like ability -- solutions and what's the best way to go for.
Charlie -- is -- -- turning point USA and you can find them online at Twitter at turning point USA and turning point USA dot net.
An impressive young man Charlie thanks very much nice touch you good luck and and keep us posted on the success of the organization sounds like you do some great work.
Thanks for having me.
When we come back we're gonna talk more about young people because young people go to school August.
Older people go to school too but mostly young people going to school getting ready to start.
A new school year and that means having to -- all the books in the -- back and forth every day.
And we've got creative solution -- -- your solution for getting your stuff.
To it from your classroom when we come right back don't go.
Are welcome back -- with us that this -- solution America -- -- -- down.
And I was reading a study that the number one disable or people 45 and under is back pain.
You suffer from back pain and have you ever separate Bakken well it could be because of the way you're carrying your back and maybe not just to school back maybe it's your briefcase.
-- -- maybe it's your purse.
You know it's just not that Smart according to experts to carry -- -- over one shoulder.
And so the problem is heavy bags causing back pain in the solution back friendly and stylish back packs you talk to us about that -- -- dealt with so.
Who's a fashion and lifestyle expert you can find here that -- dawn dot com that's her -- -- on Twitter at Don -- was so good to see things very much.
Had to be here so okay so this is the season I know my wife was recently on line with -- two older daughters they were looking.
For new backpacks for the -- yeah year.
And I got to imagine a lot people are doing the same exact thing.
Yes and very often -- -- on -- just you know have a regular backpack but yet we have to solve the problem of the back in which and at some point everybody's experience.
I know when I was younger.
I did -- I didn't really think too much about it yeah.
But thinking back yet so the idea of like sort of and I and I had a briefcase that I bring with me think that during my commute.
If it's not -- put it over my shoulders it's like a briefcase and -- one strand.
It's weighing down that one side absent without secure back all the time and that one side and actually after awhile people start to notice that that one side they're not even they have to go to chiropractor that -- do.
You know therapy for their back so we -- -- some pretty good solutions to that.
-- that let's take a look at first but this is the back.
I guess that everybody likes -- it only has this one.
Even though they say teach Jackson better you wanna Wear that two thicker strap this one's pretty cool exit is just one fat so -- kind of solve that problem just throwing the one.
Strap over your back and a backpack but has a thicker strap and if you notice on the back actually has this little peace accord that stretches to help.
Reduce -- the Israeli pull of the books yes exactly okay cunanan actually has multiple zipper is different pockets for you know electronics and stuff like that and then heading in the back part two guys could do that that's like this easily throw it over and like a cross your body which is another styles that -- better that's really good because it really bounces out the week he wanna keep the weight between ten to 15% of your body weight of the go there that that's when you're in trouble I mentioned -- -- -- some talk to -- the screen they weren't here handbag the -- pretty cold day on design banks still women like moms that are also sort of going back to school.
-- and need all their pockets so inside.
It's sort of solves the problem it's.
Different colors so that we could find stepped easily and then had a ton of pocket three could find your keys easily yourself on an all that stuff and a double strap.
That is long enough to fit over your shoulder usually -- comfortably so it's not underneath really tight.
Which is another option the bowling -- styles are really good for that for moms.
Going back to school and kinda carrying out what about this little.
One is for our our little kids going back to school they need these big -- They can do a smaller one and -- suggest that for like the little girls and boys that are going back to school look smaller don't.
Feel like you have to go into the stores and gone to called -- by them this big backpack.
Look for the smaller -- this one's about one Kaymer and that wouldn't -- too many school books and now the good thing about it is a lot.
More kids are able to access their books now after I had -- it's and under the yes which makes it a lot easier for -- to not have to carry so many books like art.
You know that would have been great I remember looking good -- -- walker and I would I don't know about you as a warrior and I used to have this.
Junk DNA that I did and my parents hated expense hunchback who is -- around his big.
But bag of books actually end up getting one of wheels on it I don't know what good is it yeah.
OK god tells the one thing -- the next option that I like for kids is something that the right that really stands out you wanna look for on putting ads are factors are neon sign in your kid is walking like he said.
Home from school -- not taking a bus -- picking them up.
They can be spotted pretty easily and avoid you know any traffic type of accidents that's good practical and safety.
Conscious still I options that we have are these new high -- thousands of the solar panel on it really which is political -- charges charges on your equipment so -- to the -- to -- -- -- iphones.
On any cellular phones they're carrying with you so if you are -- -- on the go are going to college and you know you're spending a full day from morning to night you have options not worry about having fit.
-- charge of your equipment.
It's right there on -- as long as it's on the solar yet there's also -- that come with battery packs.
So that way if you I don't aren't available the fun the battery pack is charged charged that and then you -- -- -- -- -- and you -- -- -- What's the lesson lesson learned nerves -- the makeup -- we have this is our computer carrying bag now Blake we mentioned a lot more kids are going back to school.
In schools they're bringing computers to school so this is -- cross body style but also has the handle this laptop that's the one that the floor into the -- was on -- -- president a few pockets.
Adjustable straps look for adjustable straps that are -- into because it depends on your height.
And wait we want to match the -- up with that too and I like the little handle.
Strapped to carry it by hand if you didn't want to throw it over your shoulder that was too -- -- you very aware of your back and if you start to feel that pain.
Switch back -- -- this is a good option don't.
