How to Turn Off Android Email Notifications – Disable Email Notifications on Galaxy S

OK, so recently I got the Samsung Galaxy S 4G through T-Mobile, love the phone, but the email notifications were driving me crazy.  Every time I got an email, the notification sound would go off.  This got really irritating, especially with all the junk mail that comes through.

After researching this a bit on the internet, everyone kept saying the same thing.
Here is how you turn it off:

  1. Open the EMail App.
  2. Press Menu.
  3. Select More.
  4. Tap Settings.
  5. Check or uncheck email Notification.

So I did this but it didn’t work.  I had 2 email accounts so I made sure that both of them had email notifications unchecked.  But sounds would still come through.

After searching high and low through the phone I found another place where you can turn off the Email Notification on the Android Phone for good!

You have to disable the email notifications in your Gmail App, not the Email App. So here is what to do:

  1. Open the GMail App. (In your applications)
  2. Press Menu.
  3. Select More.
  4. Tap Settings.
  5. Click your email account that you would like to enable or disable the notifications for.
  6. Check or uncheck Email Notification.

My Dog Has Diarrhea After Changing His Food, Can Changing a Dog’s Diet Cause Diarrhea?

Can changing a dog’s diet cause diarrhea?

Recently I switched my dogs food just to change it up for him. I figured he has to be sick of the stuff he has been eating for 4 years now… I’m sick of it, and I don’t even have to eat it! (haha) All kidding aside, I switched his food to a similar type of mixture (both were mainly lamb and rice) so I figured it would be fine.

He has been eating it fine with not problems. He had solid stools for about a week, now all the sudden he has been having extremely bad diarrhea for about 2 days straight. The stool is so soft that it is barley being held together, and appears to have mucus or slime in the diarrhea as well.

I did notice that this new dog food is quite a bit oilier/greasier than the last one that we had. Could the extra oil/grease in this new food be making it too hard for him to digest, causing the diarrhea?

I am a little concerned that something else is causing these symptoms because he was fine for about a week eating this new food. And now he starts having this runny diarrhea. Can it take a week or so after a dog’s diet change to start effecting them? Or should I be worried that he picked up some kind of a stomach parasite?

Our dog has not been in contact with many other dogs lately either, so I am not sure if he would have been able to pick up a parasite from another dog.

If anyone else has had this same problem, please fell free to post a comment below. I will be changing my dog’s food back to the old kind tonight, so if that fixes the problem I will let everyone know.
