This means that users can browse the web securely at the flick of a switch.<br><br>Privacy aside, the built-in VPN is also an ideal tool to circumvent website blockades. This may come in handy for the aforementioned BitTorrent users as well, as sites such as The Pirate Bay are blocked in many countries.<br><br>The VPN connection is provided by the Canadian VPN service SurfEasy, which like many other VPNs keeps no logs. SurfEasy was acquired by Opera last year and VP of Marketing Steve Kelly tells TorrentFreak that privacy and censorship were the main reasons to add the free VPN to Opera.<br><br>"Everyone deserves to <a href=""><strong></strong></a> surf privately online if they want to. Today, it is too difficult to maintain privacy when using the web, and way too many people experience roadblocks online, like blocked content," Kelly says.<br><br>"By releasing an integrated, free and unlimited VPN in the browser, we make it simple for people to enhance their privacy and access the content they want," he adds.<br><br>It is worth highlighting that the VPN connection is limited to the web browser. This means that any content shared outside the browser, through traditional torrent clients for example, is not private. <br><br>Opera's in-browser VPN uses AES-256 encryption and SurfEasy says that the initial response has been very strong. The network is prepared to handle hundreds of thousands of simultaneous connections without any problems.<br><br><img src="" width="366" /><br><br>With the addition of a VPN feature Opera hopes to set a new standard for modern browsers. Earlier, it was already the first major browser to include an ad-blocker.<br><br>"This is the first VPN option integrated into a major browser. Also, it's delivered from a company you can trust, with an extensive history of providing reliable and trustworthy internet products," Kelly told us. <br><br>More details about the built-in VPN are available at the Opera blog. People who want to give it a spin should download the latest developer release, as the feature is not available in the regular version yet.<br><br>Opera's VPN feature<br><br> Where to Get Grocery Coupons Primer blog 2016-04-22T07:17:48Z Grocery shopping is one thing that tops our monthly to-do-list. Most people love this activity and cannot wait to hit the grocery store for the smallest of reasons. However, in today's hard economic times, it is extremely important to save money and cut corners in order to live a relatively decent life. The good thing being that, though the grocery is a primary expense, it can be controlled too, in order to save money. One of the <a href=""><strong></strong></a> best ways for serving this purpose is to search for grocery coupons. These are available online, in newspaper inserts, and sometimes, as discount coupons. Let's try to identify a few places from where you will be able to obtain them.<br><br>Sources<br><br>Printable grocery coupons are the newest rage amongst shoppers, as well as manufacturers these days. Free coupons have always been a great attraction for shoppers and now, with the availability of the former, it is even more exciting. One of their biggest advantages is that you can use them as soon as you go online, and print them, which is so much more convenient. Hence, printing them out is the best way to get the maximum savings while shopping for what you need.<br><br>Free Sign-up<br><br>&#13;The best thing to do is to sign up on various suitable online sites. Sign-up for free on these websites and get to know about the special free coupons that are available at various grocery stores. Once you are informed about these offers, all you need to do is to print them and avail the discounts. The only thing that might hold you back from signing into these websites are the additional offers that keep on appearing in bulk. Well, there is a simple solution to this problem, as well; you just need to uncheck the box for additional offers and you will be spared of all such mails.<br><br>Shopper's Card<br><br>&#13;Some grocery stores also offer various schemes and discount offers, once you cross a certain amount of shopping. If you shop beyond that sum, you get a shopper's card. This card gets activated only after you fill up a small form with your contact number and/or email address. Once you do that, the stores keep on sending you text messages or emails about all the free sales offers on a regular basis for saving money on groceries. If they find that you are utilizing most of their offers, you get special considerations and additional discounts, whenever you shop from them.<br><br><img src="" width="257" /><br><br>Communicate<br><br>&#13;Communication is the best way to save money on groceries. For instance, you can contact shop associates in person or by email, and request them to let you know about the ways that you can receive notifications regarding discounts and offers. Some websites also offer no-registration coupons to print. Such a facility is a great option for people who want to escape the hassle of first registering themselves.<br><br>Food coupons are pretty hard to come by, in comparison to grocery items like soaps, toiletry, juices, and other household products. Hence, you need to grab the opportunity as soon as it comes your way. Thus, all in all, it is certain that shopping will be quite a pleasant experience for you, provided that you use this facility to its full capacity.<br><br> ‘Knock Knock’ Star Ana de Armas Joins ‘Blade Runner 2’ Cast Primer blog 2016-04-22T07:08:01Z Here's a part of the press release sent out:<br><br>De Armas is a new addition to the list of reasons why maybe we shouldn't be so skeptical about the sci-fi sequel. On Blade Runner 2, the actress will work with plenty of talent that generally evoke promise, including Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, and best of all, legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins, a now frequent collaborator of Villeneuve's. The Prisoners and Enemy director will begin shooting the sequel, which is set decades after Ridley Scott's original 1982 film, this July.<br><br>LOS ANGELES, CA, APRIL 21, 2016 - Ana de Armas will join Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista in a leading role in Alcon Entertainment's sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 masterpiece BLADE RUNNER, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEO's Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.<br><br>Blade Runner 2 Adds Knock Knock's Ana de Armas<br><br><img src="" height="51" width="51" alt=""><br><br>'Knock Knock' Star Ana de Armas Joins 'Blade Runner 2' Cast<br><br>Posted on Thursday, April 21st, 2016 by Jack Giroux<br><br><img src="" alt="Blade Runner 2 Ana de Armas" data-recalc-dims="1"><br><br>Blade Runner 2 opens in theaters October 6th, 2017.<br><br>Cool Posts From Around the Web:ZergNet<br><br><img src="" height="21" width="35" alt="">Comment Now! <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="" width="262" /><br><br>This is a potentially big year for de Armas. While the two Keanu Reeves films she just starred in, Knock Knock and Exposed, didn't find much of an audience -- the latter of those movies was just flat-out butchered and dumped into theaters -- she proved to be an actress with plenty of range in both films.

How to profit from property; Can you still make money from property development in the current climate? Karen Wilson gets some tips for budding Sarah Beeneys. Primer blog 2016-04-21T07:30:08Z JAMES Chapple was just 22 when he got the property developing bug.With a pounds 8,500 deposit saved from his job as a travel guide hebought his first home - a three-bed terrace in London. "I did allthe work myself ," says James, 36 who now lives in Alnmouth withwife Elly and two children Ella and Reuben.<br><br>"It took me two years but I made a good profit and thought I&#13;could do a few more of these!" Although he made lots of mistakes at&#13;the beginning, 45 developments later, James now knows all the pitfalls&#13;and can work out in minute detail a contingency plan for every&#13;eventuality. His advice, whether you're planning a property&#13;development or simply want to maximise your home's sale appeal, is&#13;invaluable. "I'm not convinced the market's&#13;depressed," says James. "If a house is in the right location&#13;at the right price, people will buy it. I've yet to be proven wrong&#13;by that."&#13;&#13;<br><br><img src="" width="368" /><br><br>James has just finished his latest project - a luxury four-bedroom&#13;house in High Buston, near Alnmouth, created from a "knackered old&#13;barn" and one of the adjoining cottages which he bought in December&#13;2009.&#13;&#13;<br><br>Part conversion and part newbuild, it's now a beautiful&#13;light-filled space with well proportioned rooms.&#13;&#13;<br><br>A second one-bedroom cottage has been extended to create a separate&#13;two-bedroom home next door.&#13;&#13;<br><br>Forward planning was key to the success of the project. Before&#13;he'd even viewed the property James had done his research and knew&#13;exactly the kind of couple who might buy it, what the finished sale&#13;price might be and even how much rent they could get as a holiday let if&#13;it didn't sell.&#13;&#13;<br><br>"I knew it was coming on the market so I was the first personto view it," says James. "I had a letter from the bank andevidence my funds were in place so I could agree to buy it thatday."<br><br>Before the sale went through, James approached the planning&#13;department who suggested a few amendments. He also sent his plans round&#13;the village, changing a window at the request of one neighbour.&#13;&#13;<br><br>"We didn't do anything too daring to ensure we would get&#13;planning permission," explains James.&#13;&#13;<br><br>However as they had to exchange contracts in "a ridiculously&#13;short space of time" and securing full planning permission would&#13;take months, James had to rely on the positive indications he'd&#13;already had from the council.&#13;&#13;<br><br>"We wouldn't have got finance without the planning&#13;permission in place, so we had to buy it up front for cash," he&#13;explains.&#13;&#13;<br><br>As with any building project, there were hiccups along the way but&#13;"all of these were knowns" according to James.&#13;&#13;<br><br>"You have to anticipate every possible problem," explains&#13;James. "For instance it was a tricky sloping site so we had to&#13;excavate more rock than we thought. We also had to underpin the&#13;foundations of the property next door and factor in extra money when&#13;installing the sewerage treatment plant."&#13;&#13;<br><br>The main surprise was the six months it took to get the pounds&#13;20,000 covenant lifted as the land was owned by the Duke of&#13;Northumberland.&#13;&#13;<br><br>"It was a very high fee but I knew before I bought it,"&#13;says James. "We couldn't start work without it."&#13;&#13;<br><br>In the end James went over budget by 10%, choosing to upgrade his&#13;spec as the property market changed.&#13;&#13;<br><br>At every step of the way, he had his target buyers in mind - a&#13;second home owner, retired couple or a family with older children.&#13;"It couldn't be too minimalist but not too olde worlde either," he says. "We needed to factor in comfort so&#13;there's underfloor heating, hardwearing finishes and a wood burning&#13;stove."&#13;&#13;<br><br>The kitchen/diner was a key room with quality cream units from&#13;Callerton Kitchens and folding sliding patio doors that open right up to&#13;make the terrace feel like part of the house. In the bathrooms James&#13;chose high use fittings from Porcelanosa because "it's a&#13;luxurious brand that people recognise" and tiles from both&#13;Porcelanosa and Classic Tiles of Newcastle. All the bedrooms have fitted&#13;storage too.&#13;&#13;<br><br>When it comes to staging the property for sale James believesit's all about creating a lifestyle. He's used some of his ownfurniture to keep costs down as well as items from previous developmentsto dress the rooms. "There's a little bit of beg, borrow andsteal," he admits.<br><br>"But don't overdo it. You only need a few key&#13;pieces."&#13;&#13;<br><br>Upstairs James has only dressed the master bedroom, which has a&#13;dressing room and en suite, opting for a bespoke headboard to add wow to&#13;an ordinary double bed.&#13;&#13;<br><br>Next on the horizon, once the neighbouring cottage is finished, is&#13;to convert a large house into flats in Alnmouth. But James also has an&#13;exciting new project up his sleeve as part of his strategy to diversify&#13;his portfolio - a new concept called 'galleried living', that&#13;he hopes will bring executive rental apartments with double height&#13;ceilings to Gateshead.&#13;&#13;<br><br>Seafields House, High Buston, Northumberland is for sale through&#13;Rook Matthews Sayer at pounds 540,000, tel 01665 510044.&#13;&#13;<br><br>CAPTION(S):&#13;&#13;<br><br>QUALITY James Chapple relaxes in the lounge at Seafield House.&#13;TOUCH OF CLASS The contemporary kitchen/diner at Seafield House.

Primer blog 2016-04-20T09:10:42Z Mackerel can be canned in water, salt water, tomato sauce, olive oil and other vegetable oils. Of course, fresh fish taste much better when compared with canned fish. <br><br>As lean fish protein source, many people prefer mackerel canned in salt water, while mackerel canned in various oils or tomato sauce they generally avoid. Mackerel canned in olive oil taste much better than mackerel canned in salt water, but it is also much more caloric - single tablespoon of olive oil has around 15g - 135 kcal. To reduce amounts of fats in such canned mackerel, many people put canned fish in strainer and wash it using plenty of fresh lemon juice. On the other hand, those who are worried about sodium levels should choose mackerel canned in plain water - it can be almost tasteless - just taste of fish, but those cans contain nothing but the fish meat and plain water.<br><br>Content of mercury in canned mackerel is relatively low, especially when compared with mercury levels of large predatory species like tuna or marlin. Some mackerel species, like king mackerel can have moderate levels of cadmium, mercury and other heavy metals and pollutants. <br><br>For example, FDA's (Food and Drug Administration) reports from 1990-2010, state that levels of mercury in swordfish:<br><br>- 0.995 PPM (parts per million) on average<br><br>- 3.220 PPM maximum<br><br>This is statistics for 636 samples.<br><br>Statistics for mercury in King mackerel:<br><br>- 0.730 PPM on average<br><br>- 1.670 PPM maximum<br><br>This is statistics for 213 samples.<br><br>Levels of mercury in Atlantic mackerel:<br><br>- 0.050 PPM on average<br><br>- 0.160 PPM maximum<br><br>This is statistics for 80 samples.<br><br>According to NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) and FDA, children, pregnant woman and those women trying to get pregnant should eat no more than:<br><br>- King mackerel - generally this kind of mackerel should be avoided,<br><br>- Mackerel (Spanish, Gulf) - consume no more than three 180g (6 oz.) servings per month,<br><br>- Mackerel (North Atlantic) - consume no more than two 180g (6 oz.) servings per week.<br><br>Other people can safely follow these recommendations - after all, what is safe for children and pregnant women, it is also safe for others. Mackerel from much cleaner seas (some parts of Mediterranean, for example) can be eaten more often - it is very important to read the labels and follow the recommendation guidelines regarding mercury levels in the fish.<br><br>Various canned mackerel recipes enable every person to enjoy this type of food avoiding boredom. Generally, when planning such meals, one should try to consume some healthy fiber source (leafy or green vegetables, salads, whole grain bread etc.) with canned mackerel - such foods are very voluminous when compared to usable calories that body can digest. Also, they are very low on simple carbs and rich in complex carbs and digestive fibers - they are digested slowly and such meals supply the body with more or less constant flow of macronutrients avoiding strong rise of blood sugar and insulin spikes.<br><br><img src="" width="370" /><br><br>If you are hard gainer and you want to gain weight, preferably muscles, then add some source of simpler carbs like potato salad, sweet potato, brown rice etc. to increase daily amount of calories - according to your dieting plan. Such meals provide more calories and are easier and faster to digest. <br><br>Although exact nutritional values depend on mackerel specie, fishing grounds, seasons etc., canned mackerel is great source of fish protein, fat soluble vitamins (like vitamin D), minerals and healthy fats and it should be part of healthy diet of anybody wanting to become and stay fit. Just be careful about what mackerel specie you are consuming ...<br><br>&#13;<br><br> - How Meth Took Hold on Indian Reservation - Local News | News Articles | National News Primer blog 2016-04-20T09:08:20Z - How Meth Took Hold on Indian Reservation - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News <br><br>Sunday, April 29, 2007<br><br>By ANGIE WAGNER, AP National Writer <br><br>WIND RIVER INDIAN RESERVATION, Wyo.<br><br>Just off the deserted highways, the silver pickup truck eases down quiet streets, its driver offering a numbing tour of a remote reservation framed by the beauty of snowcapped mountains.<br><br>There, Leon Tillman says, over there _ the house on the right, a white, two-story building set off by itself.

Tillman, 39, knows too many to count.<br><br>"It's everywhere," he said.<br><br>Indeed, American Indians have been especially hard hit by meth. Drug cartels have targeted Indian Country because the people are vulnerable, and law enforcement struggles to keep up.<br><br>But the story of how meth came to this remote reservation is really quite remarkable.<br><br>Like a cancer, a Mexican drug gang permeated the reservation and its families. It left behind a landscape strewn with broken lives.<br><br>___<br><br>Some 12,000 Indians _ members of the Northern Arapaho and the Eastern Shoshone tribes _ live on 2.2 million acres, an area so vast many homes are separated by miles of barren land.<br><br>Poverty and unemployment are high, alcoholism is rampant and the police department is so understaffed _ patrolling such a large area _ that the average response time is 15 to 20 minutes.<br><br>Jesus Martin Sagaste-Cruz knew that. And he knew the reservation's isolation would be perfect for his business.<br><br>Authorities learned of the Sagaste-Cruz drug ring back in 1997. Sagaste-Cruz and his Mexican gang had already been selling around Indian reservations in South Dakota and Nebraska.<br><br>But it was an article in The Denver Post that changed the way they did business. The story talked about how a Nebraska liquor store near the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota did millions of dollars in business. Sales were especially high immediately after Indians received their per capita checks _ their share of their tribe's income.<br><br>Sagaste-Cruz figured if there were already so many Indians addicted to alcohol, it would be easy enough to addict them to methamphetamine.<br><br>So around 2000, the Mexicans moved in and near Wind River Reservation.<br><br><img src="" width="350" /><br><br>"They came to a place where people don't have anything," said Frances Monroe, who works in the Northern Arapaho Child Protection Services office.<br><br>They started with free meth samples. The men pursued Indian women, providing them with meth even as they romanced them and fathered their children. Eventually, the women needed to support their habit, so they became dealers, too _ and they used free samples to recruit new customers.<br><br>It was all part of the plan.<br><br>For the next four years, the gang sold pounds and pounds of meth, much of it 98 percent pure. The drugs came from Mexico, then on to Los Angeles; Ogden, Utah (where Sagaste-Cruz lived); and finally Wyoming, where gang members had a handful of local distributors, each with their own customer base.<br><br>Customers became dealers and recruiters, and their customers did the same.<br><br>Before, meth was barely mentioned on the reservation. Police reported only sporadic arrests.<br><br>But now the reservation was saturated with it. Crime soared. From 2003 to 2006, cases of child neglect increased 131 percent. Drug possession was up 163 percent; spousal abuse rose 218 percent.<br><br>The Wind River reservation is not alone. The Bureau of Indian Affairs found that methamphetamine was listed as the greatest threat to Indian communities by police departments.<br><br>Mexican drug cartels take advantage of the often complicated law <a href=""><strong></strong></a> enforcement jurisdictions in Indian Country. Isolated communities are hit the hardest, and sometimes even tribal leaders are not immune, said Heather Dawn Thompson, director of government affairs for the National Congress of American Indians.<br><br>Here on the Wind River, a tribal judge, Lynda Munnell-Noah, was arrested in a 2005 drug ring bust and accused of trying to assault and murder a Bureau of Indian Affairs law enforcement officer.<br><br>Resources are few, and most reservations don't have treatment centers. Between 2000 and 2005, the number of methamphetamine contacts in Indian Health Services facilities increased by almost 250 percent.<br><br>"Even if we arrest people for use or sale, there's almost nothing to do with them in order to help them recover," Thompson said. "Where do you go and how do you pay for it?"<br><br>In his 2008 budget, President Bush proposed a $16 million increase in law enforcement funding in Indian Country to help combat methamphetamine, a godsend to police departments like Wind River's, which has only 10 police officers.<br><br>"The heartbreaking part of it is, it's had this absolutely devastating effect on our community," Thompson said. "I have tribal leaders coming to my office all the time just crying. I mean, how do you fight this? How do you function as a government when 30 percent of your tribal employees are now using meth?"<br><br>___<br><br>Inside a tribal office, a bulletin board displays meth's effects: In a series of mug shots, a woman deteriorates _ her teeth rotting, her skin collecting scabs. A nearby poster warns that making, selling or using meth around a child will mean prison time.<br><br>This is a place where people mostly keep to themselves. They know meth is a huge problem, but they don't want to talk much about it. They fear retaliation.<br><br>A jury found that the Sagaste-Cruz ring had distributed more than 99 pounds of meth _ an amount that had a street value of between $4.5 to $6.8 million, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. The gang also sold meth on the Rosebud, Pine Ridge and Yankton reservations in South Dakota and Santee Sioux reservation in Nebraska, authorities found.<br><br>Sagaste-Cruz and 22 other people were given prison time _ a life sentence, in Sagaste-Cruz' case. His brother, Julio Caesar Sagaste-Cruz, remains a fugitive.<br><br>Ask people on the reservation about the Sagaste-Cruz case and most don't know much about it. They seem surprised to learn how sophisticated the operation was.<br><br>But mention the Goodman case, and everyone knows. The Goodmans were an entire family, grandparents down to grandchildren, who were dealing meth and prescription drugs here.<br><br>Nineteen people, including the tribal judge, were arrested in 2005.<br><br>The two cases weren't directly related, but with many Indians already hooked on meth compliments of the Sagaste-Cruz gang, the Goodmans didn't have any trouble finding customers. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kelly Rankin said the Goodmans often had 20 to 50 customers a day come to their house.<br><br>Darrell LoneBear Sr., whose sister, Donna Goodman, and her husband, John Goodman, were the ring's leaders, said his relatives fell victim to easy money on a reservation where jobs are hard to find.<br><br>He rattles off his family's prison sentences: "John Goodman, 21 years. My sister Donna, 24 years. My nephew James got 19 years. My nephew Darrell got 8.<br><br>"It was all of my family," he said.<br><br>Thirteen children were sent to live with other relatives. One sister took in six children, another took in three.<br><br>"It is a tremendous, added responsibility emotionally and financially," said LoneBear, crime prevention and safety supervisor for the Northern Arapaho Tribal Housing. "All of us have been traumatized by this matter. We all still stay here."<br><br>Police Chief Doug Noseep has a police force that can't possibly keep up with every call. He is grateful for the help from outside law enforcement agencies in the raids over the past few years, and believes it has reduced the amount of meth here.<br><br>Noseep knows who is trying to get help, who is still using. Once, his officers encountered a 12-year-old girl who was addicted.<br><br>"It's sad as hell," he said. "It's here and it's not going to go anywhere. It's never going to go away."<br><br>___<br><br>Seven years after the Sagaste-Cruz gang arrived, meth rolls on: Last summer, another bust at Wind River resulted in 43 arrests, the largest drug bust in the history of Wyoming.<br><br>On a recent night, Partners Against Meth met at a local school. The group struggles to attract volunteers and to keep committees on track. But here families that have been struck hard by the meth epidemic, and those that want to learn more about it, can come together to talk.<br><br>Leon Tillman brought his wife, son and daughter. He told the group he has six relatives in prison for meth or alcohol charges. "That's one of my worst fears, is to have one of my kids on drugs. I want to at least say I tried," he said.<br><br>A few years ago, John Washakie noticed his daughter, now 27, was losing weight and locking herself in her bedroom at her house. Then, one night, she dropped off her three young children at his house and disappeared into the darkness.<br><br>He cared for the kids for three years. It wasn't easy. "They lose all their energy about life. You spend a lot of time dealing with their emotions," he said.<br><br>Today, his daughter is clean, and cares for her children, now numbering five, herself.<br><br>"I think there are a lot of people that are scared to tell you the truth," the grandfather said. "You don't walk away from this."<br><br>Copyright 2007 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

It might look legitimate, and Jessica Rich really is the director of consumer protection for the FTC, but it's a scam. <br><br>The FTC issued a warning on Thursday to beware of this letter, which seeks to extract $5,000 from victims to pay for the "Legal Registration Bond" required to collect the supposed prize.<br><br>"The language might sound legal, and the letter might look legit," the FTC said in its warning. "You might look up Jessica Rich and see she's an actual FTC official. But the truth is, there's nothing legal or official about it. It's a fake letter designed to convince you to send money for a non-existent prize."<br><br><img src="" width="264" /><br><br>It's a classic scam to get people to pay in advance -- a tax, a fee, or a "Legal Registration Bond" -- to collect winnings that don't exist. Scam artists have long preyed on victims' willingness to suspend disbelief when the prospect of making lots of money is dangled.<br><br>But <a href=""><strong></strong></a> using the legitimacy of the FTC is an interesting twist and the agency wants to make sure people are aware, noting in the warning that:<br><br>The FTC doesn't oversee sweepstakes.No federal government agency will contact you to ask for money so you can claim a prize.If you enter <a href=""><strong>Livejasmin Hack No Survey Download</strong></a> and win a legitimate sweepstakes, you don't have to pay insurance, taxes, or shipping charges to collect your prize. If you have to pay, it's not a prize.<br><br>While government imposter scams have been sharply on the rise, they've tended to be more focused on intimidation -- like getting a call from someone posing as an Internal Revenue Service agent trying to get you to pay a supposed old tax bill.<br><br>If you do get an email, phone call or letter telling you that you've won something, you ought to check out the FTC's guide to spotting prize scams before you try to collect.<br><br>2015 CBS Interactive Inc..
