Seth Mitchell remained perfect by taking out Chazz Witherspoon in round three of a scheduled twelve round Heavyweight bout.

Witherspoon showed his fighting spirit but it proved to be his undoing and Mitchell lived up to moniker and began landing some shots that caused “Mayhem” for Witherspoon. Mitchell landed some hard shots on the ropes that caused referee Randy Neumann to first administer a standing eight and with blood dripping down the right eye eventually stopping the fight at 2:31 of round three.

How to use your cellphone to guard your home.

The Star (South Africa) July 8, 2011 While cellphones may be one of the most simple targets for criminals to steal, they can still be a useful tool in protecting yourself and your family.

And even if it goes missing, its becoming more common for smartphones to allow you to remotely retrieve your data, find its GPS position and even send a damning message to the criminal by deleting everything on your SIM card. go to web site blackberry protect login

ADT Security recently implemented a new cell-phone panic button, that with the press of a button can contact police and the security company itself if you find yourself under attack. The concept is built around speed. When you press a predetermined speed dial number, ADT automatically dispatches an armed response vehicle to your property.

“Our cell phones are seldom out of reach at home or, at least, we always know where they are – often more so than our remote panic buttons. The launch of ADT Cell Panic means you can instantly dispatch help to your property via your cellphone,” said Roy Rawlins, managing director of ADT Central Region. blackberryprotectlogin.com blackberry protect login

If the phone is used by someone other than you, a GPS position of the phone can also be sent straight to you, which can make finding the criminal a breeze for the police. MTN’s recently released security system also appears to be modelled on BlackBerry Protect, and gives the same functionality.

MTN also offer the 2MyAid service for all cellphones, which sends a distress SMS to four emergency contacts alerting them that you are in an emergency situation or in distress. The SMS will explain that you need help and contain information about your location, meaning quick and easy alert to your family or friends.

And if you constantly lose your phone, BlackBerry Protect can help. If your phone has slid down the side of the couch for the millionth time, even if the phone is on silent, you can use your computer to turn the volume up and locate it.
