Quarterly taxes due

Friendly reminder: quarterly taxes are due June 15.

Those who file estimated quarterly taxes can do so via the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System, or EFTPS, which is accessible for individuals or businesses to pay federal taxes.

You must file if you are a sole proprietor, partner, S-corporation shareholder, and/or a self-employed individual who expects to owe tax of $1,000 or more when you file your return.

The estimated tax pays income tax as well as self-employment tax and alternative minimum tax.
Strive for 10 minutes a day of exercise, study says

Just 10 minutes of moderate exercise per day each day for six days can ward off disability, a study finds.
Northwestern University researchers analyzed 1500 adults with osteoarthritis in lower extremities: hips, knees, and ankles.

The participants were not disabled and the researchers wanted to know what minimum activity could prompt health benefits.

The pain of osteoarthritis often makes movement a daunting experience, leaving patients inactive. But those who did complete 10 minutes per day of activity had an 85 percent lower risk of mobility disability. This also gave the adults less risk of being unable to perform daily activities such as getting dressed or walking across a room.
Using Internet Explorer can be dangerous, experts say

You probably know that Microsoft is no longer updating Internet Explorer, in favor of Microsoft Edge. But switching to another browser is not just a matter of preference, it's also a matter of security. Even Microsoft warned in March that using Internet Explorer as a default browser was perilous.

Many apps are designed for IE but new apps and Websites are not. So new Websites won't even work with IE. Now, according to the blog, HotforSecurity, an IE user who opens an .MHT attachment (an archive of a Web page) can let hackers into their system. Even opening a Web page archive you have made can do the same thing.

Only about 7 percent of desktop browsers still use Internet Explorer, but the app is usually installed on a Windows system. Security experts recommend completely uninstalling Internet Explorer through the control panel.

Cool summer combo for hot days

Hanging out by the pool on hot summer days calls for some cool summer recipes.
Here's just the ticket:

Spicy Perspective has a great recipe for strawberry smoothies that are easy to make poolside with just a few fresh ingredients and an electric blender. Love from the Oven, meanwhile, provides a summer pasta salad recipe that can be made the night before and served quickly so that you won't miss any time sunbathing or swimming!

Here's how to make one version of these summer delights.

Simple strawberry smoothies

Ingredients:

3 cups frozen strawberries
1.5 cups milk, any fat content
1/3 cup strawberry jam
Instructions:

1. Place the frozen strawberries, jam, and milk into the blender.
2. Secure the lid.
3. Puree until smooth.
That's it! Garnish with fresh fruit if desired!

Summer Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

2 cups pasta such as rotini, fusilli, penne or farfalle, uncooked
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
6 oz. chopped cooked chicken or turkey breast (approximately two small chicken breasts)
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato cut into chunks
1 cup chopped or grated carrots
1/2 cup prepared Italian dressing mix - or try sweet Italian from bottle or jar
4 oz. Kraft cheddar cheese cubes
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/4 cup kraft shredded Italian five cheese blend
Optional: A few fresh herbs such as basil for garnish

Instructions:

1. Cook pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli to the cooking water for the last 2 min. of the pasta cooking time; drain and rinse with cold water.
2. Toss chicken, tomatoes, carrots, dressing, cheddar cheese and olives in large bowl. Add pasta mixture; mix lightly.
3. Sprinkle with shredded Italian cheese.

If not serving immediately, store in refrigerator. The pasta cools and flavors blend overnight, if you make ahead.
