Word Game Buddies – Security Guards

Aug 19, 2016 by

Do you know who likes board games and word games? Security guards!

Yes, people who work as security personnel are fond of playing board games and word games, not because they do not like their jobs or that they do not focus on their tasks, but because these games not only keep them company especially during long, graveyard shifts, but also because the games keep them sharp and on their toes, thanks to the mental stimulation that it provides.

Of course, they should only be doing these games during breaks and whenever they are allowed by the company to do it. But that is all beside the point. The highlight is the amazing fact that board games and word games are so useful, even security officers are into it.

We all know that besides wearing gears (www.sp-usa.org) that can help them be prepared for any emergency situation, these security officers need to be alert in mentally.

What better way to stimulate the mind than to engage in board games and word games? While they may not always need to use these words in their work, increasing one’s vocabulary is never a crime, whether you use it for work or not. There is no harm in harnessing the gift of words, even if it would just be through games.

Also, we all know that these security personnel have codes that they use to signal different situations. If one does not fully grasps the concept of these words, then it would be difficult to retain to memory the many secret codes used in their line of duty.

Indeed, engaging in word games is such a great thing for security officers. It also showcases just how versatile they need to be. They need not just focus on keeping their bodies in great shape, but they also need to make sure that they are not mentally weak. Not stimulating the brain enough will lead to an underused brain and when that happens, all other skills could follow and decay.

In my amazement at how security guards are so good in playing these games, I sometimes visit them during their breaks. In our local area, they are usually gathered in the park whenever it is their day off. I would challenge them to different games and it would be amazing how they could put up a great fight. Sometimes, I win and sometimes I lose. But winning does not matter because everybody has a great time always.

This coming Christmas, I plan to give my favorite security guard buddies a gift that I saw at http://www.sp-usa.org/the-top-6-tactical-police-and-security-jackets/. This is my little way of telling them that I really appreciate not just their work, but also their keenness for word games.

iPhone Apps Perfect For Word Lovers

iPhone Word Apps

With the constant changes in dictionaries, colloquial language, social media terms, and many more word-related things, it has become necessary to be able to have a gadget that can keep up with these updates and trends.

Luckily for me, I have my trusted iPhone to help me keep up with all these changes. I even recently had my iPhone unlock through MacBuzzer. It’s a blog that gave a list of reputable sites to have your iPhone gadgets unlocked, as well as a few tips on what iPhone unlocking entails.

I have never been more happy about any other gadget other than when I started owning an iPhone. It just remains to be so updated and its perfect for people like me who like to keep things simple and smart.

One of the best things I like about iPhone and iOS is that there are a lot of applications for people like me who love to be on track when it comes to the latest word games, dictionaries and such.

While it is true that other smartphones are also able to provide some of the applications that I use with my iPhone, I still prefer iPhone gadgets over the rest because I just find its features very decent and clean. Some smartphones, become too clogged up and disorganized to look at, when there are too many apps.

I also find the updates for iPhone meaningful, in the sense that they do not change too much. This is helpful for me because it means that the updates are significant to the software of the iPhone. It only targets the necessary things, so there is not much to adapt to when an update arrives. Other smartphones tend to do too much updating that sometimes, people lose some valuable data. The simplicity of the iPhone very much makes us adults appreciate it because it is easy to the eyes.

Some of the apps I have on my iPhone that I could almost live without are my dictionary apps, and an app that updates and informs me of a new word each day, kind of like a vocabulary enhancing app. I find it very useful because it not only increases my vocabulary, it also gives me so much joy to find out about a new word that I can use in my everyday conversation, or as a power word for the next word game I play with my friends.

It is a happy thought to realize that iPhone gadgets, and other forms of great technological advancement, have not forgotten to help people stay up-to-date with the changes in languages. While some people see it as a hindrance to real, face-to-face communication, I see it as an opportunity to explore other means of effective communication and creative means of using words. It is still up to us, humans, to use them to our advantage, and not towards our destruction.
