Botox & You

As healthcare reform reduces revenue for doctors while increasing expenses, more doctors are turning to Botox and other aesthetic procedures to increase income. Because training for medical aesthetic procedures is often affordable and can take as little as one day, doctors looking to expand their practice can do so in convenient and low-cost ways.

How to Save Money on Gas

In the early fall of 2012, California drivers awoke one morning to a sudden spike in gas prices due to problems at refineries in the state, including a fire that knocked out one Bay Area refinery producing 245,000 barrels a day, and a power outage that knocked out another in Torrance.Within days the statewide gas average rose to $4.66, with commuters from Riverside, Irvine and surrounding cities taking the biggest hit due to long commutes into and out of Los Angeles,where typical prices easily top $3.50 a gallon.

The ordeal, now settled by an early release of gas typically saved exclusively for the winter months, has once more spawned a question Americans keep finding themselves asking: when will gas prices go down and stay down? But others are asking a more important question, one that doesn't depend on the unpredictability of gas and oil companies and the prices they juristic.It's the question of what we, as consumers, can do to reduce our need and use of gasoline.

Many are turning to more fuel efficient cars, such as hybrid models of the Camry, Fusion,Sonata, and Civic. Others, who either don't have the means or desire to purchase a more fuel efficient car, are developing practical car care and driving habits that help them save a few dollars off each tank of gas.

Workplace Injuries: Why You Should Be Protected

Workplace injuries occur every day, ranging from small injuries to injuries resulting in hospitalization or even death. There are several factors that contribute to these accidents, ranging from human error, lack of sleep and especially lack of workplace safety supplies, among others. Thankfully, there are many options when it comes to preventative gear that can mean the difference between life and death. Supplies such as safety glasses, hearing protection and even simple protection like work gloves are important to wear during tasks that are capable of harming the well-being of a worker. These supplies can actually be of tremendous value when it comes to preventing an injury or lessening the severity of it.

While many employers don’t take the time to make sure their employees are wearing the proper safety equipment, those who do provide suitable safety supplies and equipment for them are taking the appropriate steps to prevent a citation from OSHA. More importantly, employers are doing their part to impede a workplace accident. If every employer provides workers with the proper safety supplies and gear to outfit themselves with, workplace injuries will decrease and many injuries will be able to be prevented. By taking suitable safety precautions, workplaces will be able to focus more on performing better instead of handling workplace accidents. FULL POST
