There popularity has given their show a big boost of medical confidence that has allowed them to be seen as content experts. The 4 main doctors that appear on each episode really give some good information daily. I like watching this program and I have my DVR set to record it everyday. I love to sit back on the weekends and watch all the shows that came on through the week. If you record the Doctors on DVR; then you can fast forward it through the commercials. I can watch a whole week’s worth of shows in about 3 hours or less.

I’m still looking for a show that deals with kidney stones. I’m sure Dr. Travis Stork sees his share of kidney stone cases working in the ER in real life. I think a lot of people would like to see a show about kidney stones. What programs would you like to see the Doctors cover? Their new series on various health conditions has gained a lot of attention. Any certain medical sickness or modern surgeries that would make you sit down and watch the Doctors on ABC? If so, please reply back and let’s see if we can figure out which types of show the fans want to see most. The other 3 doctors that appear with Dr. Stork are Dr. Masterson, Dr. Sears, and Dr. Ordon.

  • There is lots of ways attorneys make their money. A few bad drivers and a criminal can pay for an attorney’s car of house payments for a year in some cases. They do make a lot of money on other people’s mistakes and evil doings. I think the medical world pays for a lot of luxuries attorneys get to enjoy every day. A medical mistake can cause a doctor or a hospital a lot of money. You also have the jobs that workers get hurt on and these are other things that lawyers can cash-in on. You see a lot of these mesothelioma ads on the computer and on TV commercials, so you know the payouts must be nice in this area too.

    There is no doubts we need attorneys to help us understand the local laws. They can help us get out of tight situations sometimes and then sometimes they help us get a lot of money. Even though they provide a valuable service to our society, they still get a bad name. I guess it’s because they do make so much money in their professions. They really didn’t teach us in school how much these lawyers make and if they would have, I might have just chose a career in law. It is a good paying job and if I had it to do all over again, I think I would like to become an attorney. The simple answer to what makes an attorney so rich is us, the common people in society or the average middle income family. We are the ones that pay for their nice houses, luxury cars, and the trips they probably go on several times each year. It’s not their fault they have so much money, it’s just the way the system is set up right now. You can get more information on the impact of asbestos and mesothelioma at where there are resources to help with any question.

    Kids deciding on a field to enter into, after their high school days are over, should consider some part of law. Law students do have to pay a lot for college and their education in 2013. However, if you graduate from a good law school, you can begin making 75K or more in your first year of practicing as an attorney. Established attorneys who have been around 5 years or more, can make double this amount and in some cases even more. Law students do have to work hard and focus 5 years of their lives to the books, but after that, it can be a very rewarding job from the pay-side of things.

  • In a recent episode of the Drs TV Show, we got to hear about some valuable information for our prostates. In case you missed it, here are the tips that were given out on the television show; which aired recently:

    Tips for a Healthy Prostate:
    • Eat fruits and vegetables
    • Eat fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, sardines and tuna.
    • Drink green tea.
    • Exercise regularly.
    • Limit your alcoholic beverage consumption to just one or two per day.

    How often do we see diet and exercise appear under “tips” or “guidelines” for living a better life? That should be a hint to a lot of you out there. The more exercise you can get each day or every other day, the better it is for you. And it goes without saying, that we must all eat healthy and make better choices at the grocery store, if we expect our bodies to do their jobs properly each day. Keep these prostate tips in mind, if you are worried or have any concerns about your prostate. If you don’t have a constant urine stream, when you go to the bathroom, this could be a sign of an enlarged prostrate. It could also be a sign of some cancers out there too. Please go see your doctor, if you think your urine is not flowing like it use to. It could be something other than “just getting older”. So please, please go see your doctor, if you have any concerns whatsoever about your prostrate, urination pains, or an unusual stream when using the bathroom.

    Monitor Calories with Your Wrist Watch?

    Thanks to a few modern advances in electronics and the medical world, we have some pretty neat watches out there. There are watches that can monitor your heartbeats, calories, and some are even designed for your blood pressure. Imagine the next time you want to know your blood pressure and all you have to do is look at your wrist watch. That could come in handy, while out shopping, playing golf, in a theater, or eating out in a restaurant. High blood pressure is still known as the “Silent Killer“, but more and more things are out there now, that can detect this silent nightmare, which so many of us suffer from today.

    Wrist Watch for Monitoring Blood Pressure

    Watches for Monitoring Calories and Your Heartbeat

    I really like some of these modern watches, that come with a medical purpose. I think this is a great gift idea, for anyone who has a birthday or holiday coming up and you need to get them a special present. A watch like one of these, would be like giving the gift of life to them. A recent episode of the Doctors TV Show featured a watch that could monitor your calories and other things. I fully expect these watches to gain in popularity as more and more people learn about them.

    Back pain is something that most people deal with at some point in their lives. For minor problems, rest for a few days may be enough to feel good again. Unfortunately, many people have back problems that will not improve without treatment; these problems can cause chronic back pain. Chronic pain is classified as pain that lasts over a long period of time. If you suffer from back problems, you will likely agree that two things must be treated: the back problem itself and the resulting pain. Physicians who specialize in pain management can help you diagnose your disease and manage the pain. They have many diagnostic tools including, but not limited to: x-ray, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bone scan, ultrasound, discography, electrodiagnostics, and thermography.

  • As consumers, many people see a product on the shelf of a local retailer, they do not think much beyond the product itself, its packaging, and the price. However there is a whole side to merchandise which many do not think about. The production, transportation, negotiation of raw materials, and logistical implications of a product are huge—even for the most basic merchandise. One of the largest fields in production is the occupation of supply chain management. Supply chain management—referred to some in the field as SCM—is the coordination of flow, movement and storage of goods and materials. From the point of origin to the shelf at the store, this industry manages every step of production. As you can imagine, there is an incredible array of considerations to be made concerning product production. This is why this is one of the largest industries world wide. Growing at incredible rates each and every year. Read the rest of this entry »

  • On Saturday, November 23rd, 2013, the Tennessee Volunteers will play in a game that could make or break their season. Head Coach Butch Jones and his team will face the Vanderbilt Commodores. The Vols are currently ranked 6th in the SEC East division and the Commodores are ranked in 4th place. If the Vols lose this game, they will be unsuccessful at making a bowl game for the third season in a row. A terrible statistic for fans of Tennessee Vols Football, and yet as bad as that loss may be, losing to the Commodores might sting a little more. Last season, Vanderbilt won against their Tennessee rivals with a 41-18 victory. If the Volunteers lose this year, it will be a back-to-back loss against Vanderbilt and that has not happened since Calvin Coolidge was president. Read the rest of this entry »

  • Individuals being convicted with a “driving under the influence” offense, face a long and often confusing process, even before they are found innocent or guilty. There are few readily available resources for those who are charged with a DUI offense, making DUI lawyers a valuable asset to have on one’s side. In states like Colorado the consequences of a DUI charge start just seven days after the charge, at which point the driver’s license is suspended for a period of thirty days.

    Alleged DUI offenders have the option of contesting this suspension with the Colorado Department of Revenue; one must do this within seven days after receiving the DUI charge in order to be eligible for the reinstatement of driving privileges. This is the first of many areas where a DUI lawyer can help a client get the best possible results.

    Depending on the circumstances, a DUI conviction typically involves the loss of driving privileges for up to two years, 8-12 points added to a license, up to a year in jail, mandatory alcohol education or treatment, up to $1,500 in fines, and much more. Experienced DUI lawyers guide their clients through all steps of the process, as well as working for a dismissal or not guilty verdict whenever possible. Tackling this stressful life event on one’s own is an uphill climb; having professional representation can make all the difference.

    If you have been charged with a DUI, you want the most qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable DUI attorney to handle your case. The team at Criminal Law Denver can help you achieve the best possible result in your case. To learn more about our firm, please contact us, or visit today.

  • Final Touches on the Home Office

    While constructing a home office is fun to do; it’s also a treat when everything is finally over and done with. You know, that first time you can sit back and enjoy it. Those last few things you put in your office, is where that “rewarding feel” comes from. Like adding your name to the office with one of those desk name plates that sit right on the front edge of the desk. It will be the first thing folks see, if they come-in and have a seat in your new home office. And speaking of seats, how much seating space should one have in their home office?

    I see one nice swivel chair behind the desk with a standard chair on the other side of the desk. You can choose to put 1 or 2 standard chairs in front of the desk. This is where the visitors, business contacts, or friends can come in for a quick seat.

    If you plan to put a nice television in your home office, then you might want to consider a couch too. Not a real big couch, but something comfy and off to the side. A couch you can pull out or move to the center of the room, where you and a few friends could see the TV screen better. I would choose a two cushion couch, with a small recliner in the corner. The maximum seating a home office should have is one couch, one recliner, 2 standard chairs, and your own personal office chair that turns around on a swivel. If you have the space to add another chair, recliner, or even a couch, then that is great. Some office spaces might allow room for another couch, but for me, I would prefer to have the open space. Perhaps you could use the space for exercising or putting a golf ball around in the office. Overall, designing home offices can be really fun and they don’t cost much to do either! Please be sure to let me know your planning designs, if you choose to tackle a new home office in 2013.

    Uptons Headed to the Peach State Braves Baseball Team in 2013

    The Tampa Bay Devil Rays could not reach an agreement with their speedy outfielder this baseball off-season. Since he was an un-restricted free agent, this allowed him the ability to sign with any other MLB Team out there. The outfielder in question, is B.J. Upton. A long time player for the D-Rays out of Florida. He didn’t need a big map to see where his new home would be. In fact, if he left Tampa Bay and just headed North on I – 75 out of Florida, he would arrive at his new team’s stadium that is just about 6 hours north of the Tampa Bay, Florida area. Look on the right hand side of the road in Atlanta and there B.J. would see his new baseball stadium Turner Field.

    After signing B.J. Upton in the early portion of the off-season, it didn’t look like the Braves had any other big news to announce this off-season. After their former centerfielder Michael Bourn has trouble finding a new team, there was some speculation if the Braves should try to go after him. Since no teams were really going after Bourn, maybe he could be had for a bargain?

    While Michael Bourn was having his struggles finding a new team, the Arizona Diamondbacks was rumored to be offering their young superstar Justin Upton in trade offers. There were a couple of deals involving Justin that were real close to happening. In fact, one trade was actually made with the Seattle Mariners; which would have sent Justin north (just like his brother BJ heading north) to the American League Seattle Mariners. However, Justin Upton had a trade clause that allowed him to veto trades and he vetoed the deal and left the Diamondback’s front office scratching their heads again.

    It must be hard trying to make a professional baseball trade and finally getting it approved by the other team’s general manager; only to see it canceled out by the player you’re trying to remove from your ball club. Give the Diamondbacks credit, they didn’t give up. They kept plucking away and finally struck up a deal with the team that would seem the least likely to provide a new home for Justin Upton.

    It was those Braves again! They didn’t have their fill on just one Upton in the clubhouse, so they signed up the little brother too. Justin didn’t veto this trade and now he seems excited, that he will get a chance to play with his older brother BJ Upton in Atlanta.

    The Braves did have to give up fan favorite Martin Prado in the deal and they also sent a really good young pitcher in Delgado to the Arizona D-Backs team. I am a huge fan of Delgado and he has proven his self at every level of baseball. The top pitching prospect in the Braves Organization was no match for Delgado. The Braves have one pitcher who is suppose to be really special in the next few years and so far, Delgado has out-pitched him every step of the way. So the Arizona fans will really like Delgado on their pitching staff; while Martin Prado provides a solid bat in their everyday line up.

    On the Braves side of things, they just landed the fastest, most athletic outfield that we have ever seen in Major League Baseball. There is no weak spots to hit to. It would appear for now, the Braves will move Justin to the left field corner, so they can keep Jason Heyward in his normal right field spot; while letting B.J. anchor down the center position in the outfield. You can look around the Majors and see some 2 star outfield defensive players, but finding 3 and three quality ones like the Braves have right now, is just impossible. The Atlanta Braves clearly have the best defensive outfield in the National and American Leagues both; if their 3 main guys stay healthy and they can run Justin, BJ, and Jason out there every single day.

    B.J. Upton, Jason Heyward, Justin Upton

    Braves fans are probably excited about the possibilities they have with their batting line-ups too. What we have been able to tell so far, through the interviews and managerial projections, we think the Atlanta Braves batting order will look something like this on paper for the 2013 MLB Season.

    1. Andrelton Simmons SS

    2. Jason Heyward RF

    3. Justin Upton LF

    4. Freddie Freeman 1B

    5. B.J. Upton CF

    6. Brian McCann C

    7. Dan Uggla 2B

    8. Juan Francisco / Chris Johnson 3B (came from Arizona in Justin Upton Trade)

    9. Pitcher

    What do you think Braves fans?

    A nice line up for sure! Maybe a few too many strikeouts in that line up, but one that can win games late. A 2 or 3 run lead is not safe, when the Braves can get any base runner on and know the guy who is due up next in the batting order has the power to knock it out of the park. The whole line-up has home run power and that has to be draining on the opposing pitchers, who have to face this line up 3 or more times per game. It will not be easy trying to find an out in this line-up.

    Chipper Jones is no longer around and this is the first season the Braves will begin without their hall of fame third baseman in a very long time. What really made the Justin Upton trade so good for the Braves team, was the fact they were getting another bat that could play the 3rd base position. The Braves will have 2 guys trying to get that 3rd base position and both players have homerun power. Juan Francisco could have the biggest bat on the team. His homeruns will travel the longest distance on the team. Chris Johnson may have a little better glove and his bat is pretty good too. Look for a platoon situation at third base for now.
