Vahia is just one of the members in the team of mathematicians and computer scientists from institutions in the United States and India. It was they who opposed and rejected the claims of scholars who declared that the ancient tablet script found in the Indus Valley is… Continue

Bad Pay Practices Costing Employers Millions! - The Prelude

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) estimates that over 70% of employers are not in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Just last week I was casually talking with a business owner about my company and the services we offer with regard to a Pay Practices Analysis.

The lessons to business people from ACORN, Tiger and Toyota

ACORN, Tiger Woods and Toyota each tripped and fell, spiraled out of

control, responded poorly, and paid dearly.

The one common thread connecting them is that, as they rose to great success, no one

within their organizations asked - "How do we respond when, not if, but

Are over the counter whitening systems safe to use?

The patients in my private practice often question me about tooth whitening products. My response is always the same: how much result are you looking for? If you want to slightly lighten the color of your teeth you could use a safe OTC product like Crest Whitening Strips. A box or 2 and you can get a shade or 2. WARNING: most over the counter whitening systems cotain an acid that will damage the tooth enamel, AND titanium dioxide which is the pigment found in white paints! Not good. The only… Continue
