Employee turnover is a big problem for United States businesses. Every year it costs them about $11 billion. Attracting and keeping good people should top the priority list for most employers. Offering the highest salary is not the way to keep people happy. Multiple research studies have shown this to be true. Providing decent benefits is one way to keep people happy and not looking for new jobs. Most workers appreciate their employee group benefits plan and consider it to be one of, if not the, most important benefits they get from their job.
Offering an employee group benefits plan for health insurance is good for employers as well. Giving this benefit to workers gives the company some important tax
The 2016 National Fly Fishing Championship will take place on June 1 at Lake Placid. The tournament will last four days and anglers will compete to win the title of the country’s top fly angler along with a roster spot on the U.S. National Fly Fishing Team that plans on competing in the world championship of fly fishing later this year.
According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife information, there are approximately 3.83 million fly anglers decked out in waders and fishing clothes who share a love for the sport.
Three fishing areas along Lake Placid will host the anglers: West Branch of the Ausable River, the Saranac River and the Salmon River.
Watertown Daily Times reports that the Lake Placid region makes for great angling sites for both trout — who feed below the surface about 90% of the time — and bass.
Each angler participating in the tournament will be designated a 200-meter stretch of public stream where there is potential for local fishing to take place. There will be volunteer teams spread throughout the area to track what each angler catches.
Registration for this national tournament is limited to only 75 anglers and registration costs $50.
Fly fishing brings in about $750 million each year and men and women across the country are passionate about the sport. Sales are likely to increase over the next few months as summer weather approaches.

Baldness, especially in men, is quite common (see: male pattern baldness). In fact, just in the U.S., two-thirds of men experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 35, and many men begin losing their hair long before this age. But just because something is widespread and normal doesn’t make it less difficult to stomach for some men. Despite its frequency, many men feel self-conscious by their hair loss. This is typically because hair loss is seen as a sign of aging, and no one wants to feel or look older than they are.
Other men handle their baldness with more confidence, embracing their appearance and accepting it as a part of who they are. But for those who have a harder time with hair loss and want to keep their head of hair, there are options out there! Hair clinics across the country offer services such as

When to Visit Your Doctor
If you are able to, going to your own doctor for a medical issue is ideal. Your doctor knows your medical history, and will have a hand
There are a lot of products that are necessary in the medical type of setting. Hospitals and nursing homes must provide their patients with beds that are adjustable and comfortable, easy to access restrooms with handicapped accessible washrooms and even easy to use wheelchairs for transportation around the facilities. A hospital or nursing home would not function as smoothly if they did not have these types of products available to their patients. This could hinder their health and their physical improvement during their hospital stay. These products need to be of high quality and extremely durable, ensuring that that are used safely and correctly.
Wheelchairs are probably one of the most needed transportation devices. In fact, 56,672,000 individuals, about 18.7% of civilians living in the communi
Enough with the fad diets already. Put down the beauty magazine tricks. Step away from the calorie counters.
We all want to lose weight and get healthier. We know that obesity and extra weight are dangerous risk factors for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancer, and we know that these conditions are some of the leading causes of preventable death.
We want to be there — for our kids, for our families, and perhaps most importantly, for ourselves. But try as we may, diet and exercise just doesn’t cut it for everybody.
When you’ve tried everything under the sun and still can’t reach your body goals, it might be time to start thinking about a physician weight loss center. Yes, that’s Continue Reading No Comments
The chances are high that at some point in your life, you’ll have to seek emergency medical care — or at the very least, medical care you can’t or don’t want to wait around for. Nobody wants to admit it, but accidents happen. You could twist your ankle jogging, or perhaps get dehydrated during a bad bout with the flu. As much as you might avoid it, nobody can have perfect health at all times. It’s certainly better that you seek professional medical care if you’re at all questioning if it’s necessary. Once, it seemed that the best option for emergency medical care was, of course, the emergency room. But many people choose not to go to the emergency room even when
“You need an MRI.” No-one likes to hear those words. For many patients the thought of an MRI can be extremely frightening; for those with claustrophobia, the idea is even more disturbing. An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), however, while not necessarily pleasant, is not painful. Here is everything you need to know about having an MRI.
Every year, more than 30 million MRI scans are conducted and of those 22% (6.6 million) are head scans. An MRI scan typically lasts between half an hour and two hours and will require you to lie very still. An MRI scan essentially takes a series of pictures, each lasting about 15 minutes. There are generally two to six series of pictures per scan. Such scans can be used to create 3D images to be viewed at different angles.
Some radiology centers do have access to scanne
Like many signs of aging, hearing loss can be so gradual that we may not realize it’s happening to us. Our bodies grow accustomed to the incremental loss of sensation and we lose perspective of the accumulative damage. Among Americans, 1 out of every 5 adults suffers from hearing loss, and for those over the age of 65, numbers increase to 1 in every 3 adults. While it can be difficult to notice the change, there are always clues.
Here are a few signs that it is time to seek out hearing loss treatment.
- You have trouble following conversations in large groups.
Do you struggle to keep up with the table talk in busy restaurants or crowds? Do you find yourself tuning out of a conversation when too many people are talking or when the room has lots of background noise? Hearing a
