Anything that you send or receive from your computer flows out across the Internet which is a great big public network that anyone might see and read as it goes by. It is more like sending a postcard in the normal mail than a letter, everything can be inspected as it goes by. Sadly, there are malicious people and programs out there that search for things like passwords and credit card numbers in this constant flow of information.

HTTPS hides your information as it goes across the Internet. One of the easiest ways to gain some peace of mind is to use secure connections on the Internet rather than unsecure one. The S in HTTPS stands for secure.

Q. How do I dispose of used sharps (needles & syringes)?

A. If you do not have an approved container for disposal of used sharps, you can use an old laundry detergent bottle. Place about 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol in the bottle along with your used needles and syringes. Mark the bottle in large letters with a permenant marker; "SHARPS -- DO NOT RECYCLE". When the bottle is approximately 1/2 full, screw the cap on tightly and discard the bottle with your regular trash. DO NOT PLACE BOTTLE WITH YOUR RECYCLABLES.
