TCC Talk Blog

When I call my grandmother on the phone, I always end up calling her landline because she just can’t figure out how to work her Samsung Galaxy smart phone. She claims that technology really isn’t her thing. She also recently got a Facebook account, and she is slowly learning how to post/comment/share.

Social media posting is something that some users hardly think twice about, so it cracks me up when I see that my grandma has accidentally shared five statuses thinking she was typing something into the Google search bar. Whether it is sending an accidental text message or posting an unintentional status, sometimes we can all agree that ever evolving technology and social media platforms are at times difficult to maneuver. Check out some of these silly examples below!

Did you know that each year, about 150,000,000 phones are discarded in the United States alone? And according to the EPA, only 12.5% of electronic waste is recycled properly. That adds up to more than $60 million of gold and silver that’s unnecessarily thrown away, not to mention the huuuuge amount of unwanted smartphones, tablets, and more that will be sitting in a landfill for decades (and even centuries) to come.

Supporting veterans is embedded in our culture at TCC. Here’s how we’ve shown our appreciation for all that they’ve done:

Veterans Rock Giveback

Work for TCC. During the week of May 14-18, TCC stores across the country will be donating care kits to local nursing homes.

We want to use this week to show our appreciation to the senior community and highlight some of the benefits of nursing homes. Each care kit contains a plethora of supplies like colored pencils, markers, water colors, puzzles, games, and more.

Benefits of Nursing Home Living

Built-In Social Network

Most nursing homes have a constant stream of organized activities, entertainment that’s brought in, exercise classes, and other social events. This makes it easier to meet your peers and form connections.

Amazing Food

Fine dining can be found in plenty of nursing homes who hire high-end certified chefs to cook amazing meals every single day. Some even have multiple restaurants inside to eat at so you have options! Plus, there’s dieticians on hand to ensure you’re meeting your dietary requirements. The more I’m looking into this, the more interested I am in living in a nursing home…

Specialized Heath Care

Nursing homes are made for people who have health conditions. There’s trained staff who are able to help with all your needs, as well as help with medication administration, and emergency services.

After winning Google Home Minis at the popup donut shop last November, my boyfriend John decided to get the new Google Pixel 2. The smart speaker was the first Google product I’ve owned and it quickly became a vital part of my everyday routine; After using John’s Pixel for a bit and getting a feel for things, I could really see myself loving this phone too. But, you shouldn’t hear it just from me–I’ve asked John to tell me some of his favorite things about the phone and why he ultimately made the switch.

Daniel Negreanu is in the house for the 2017 Undisputed Sales Rally! This professional poker player started his presentation on a high note: with a picture of his two puppies.

Apologize, and take the steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again. After all, you don’t become one of the best poker players of all time by making excuses and blaming other people.
