FINEBAUM ON FOOTBALL - Janice talked with Paul Finebaum about college football. They discussed the Iron Bowl and Alabama's win. It was a close game but Alabama got the win in the end and remains high in the rankings. Derrick Henry ran over 40 plays because the running game worked for Bama and Kenyan Drake is out with an injury and unable to play. Henry stayed in the game most of the time the offense was on the field. He racked up some good numbers for those voting on the Heisman Trophy forefront this year and may be leading the pack of nominees in that race. They also discussed Georgia parting ways with Coach Mark Richt. Many speculate that Alabama's Defensive Coordinator Kirby Smart could take the job at his alma mater. They also discuss all the controversy surrounding Les Miles and how LSU handled the rumors that he would be fired but suddenly after Saturday's win over Texas A&M, the Athletic Director announced Miles would remain the coach.
BBB - BBB Tips for Shopping Savvy on Cyber Monday Cyber Monday is one of the biggest days of the year for online sales. The National Retail Federation expects online sales this holiday season to reach $105 billion, and many retailers large and small will be offering huge discounts and special offers today - on Cyber Monday. Better Business Bureau wants to remind consumers to be mindful of their online transactions during the holiday season. Be a savvy shopper. When shopping online, be sure to take your time, and read the fine print before submitting your order. Look for the return policy during the holidays, as some stores have different return policies depending on the item you purchase and when trying to return an item you purchased online. Although many online orders can be returned for a full refund, others have restocking fees. Know the advertiser. Some of the best deals are only available online, but be careful. It's easy for a fake site to mimic a famous retailer's website, so make sure you are shopping with a legitimate site. Check out bbb.org to read more about stores or websites unfamiliar to you. Trust but verify. When shopping online, use retail websites that you trust. Use common sense and avoid deals that seem "too good to be true." Use anti-virus software. To ensure your computer and personal information are safe, use anti-virus software on your computer or mobile device and keep it up-to-date. Shop with a credit card. A credit card provides additional protections over a debit card in case of fraudulent transactions. If your card number is compromised, it's easier to dispute any charges that you didn't approve. Prepaid cards or gift cards don't have the same protections as a credit card, but you'll never lose more than the value of the card itself. Make sure websites are secure. Only share personal information and your credit card number with websites that are https -the extra "s" stands for secure- and that have a security lock icon in the task bar. Be careful of phishing scams. A popular one at this time of year is an email claiming to be from a package- delivery company with links to tracking information -clicking on unfamiliar links can place you at risk for malware and/or identity theft.
