Here in California, it's our goal to enroll even more families as we look ahead to the new open enrollment period beginning November 15, 2014.
Predictably, this one case diagnosed here in the U.S. has resulted in a media feeding frenzy, rumination, recrimination, and the familiar blend of hyberbole and hysteria that tends to populate those infamous 15 minutes during which any given crisis holds our attention.
All of us together can continue to bring change to corporate America, and perhaps one day chemical companies will no longer be on the list of least trusted businesses.
There might be no clearer metaphor for mental clarity than that clock: we describe the timing of the very punctual among us as being like a "Swiss watch."
Running has become the unofficial go-to cardio workout. With so many benefits, there couldn't possibly be a better workout out there, right? Well, there just might be a more effective workout for you.
