Even if you are from the construction industry or if you work in a industrial environment, some of you may still ask “do I really have to wear this?”. The safety boots can be quite uncomfortable and the safety cap or safety toe does not allow good circulation of air, making it hot and sweaty especially if you have to be out and about the whole day. So why must we wear safety toe boots?
In the “Beer News” section of the most recent Beer Advocate magazine is a blurb on European drinking habits. According to a study, only ten percent of Europeans have a beer at lunch. The number seems low for Europe. I’d bet it’s even smaller for Americans, since I rarely see anyone having a beer with lunch. Some employers even forbid lunchtime drinking. Unless you have a job that requires driving a car or operating parts catalog, I don’t understand it. One beer has absolutely no effect on my alertness or productivity (unless it’s an ass-kicking eight-to-ten-percenter).
Medically, snoring can be a precursor or an indicator of more serious issues, as well as being significant in itself. A person who snores heavily has a more restless sleep and is awakened frequently. A good night’s sleep is essential for good health, and even on this basis alone it may be valuable to reduce snoring.
Unlike hardwood floors or linoleum which can be slippery, your carpets provides both anti slip properties and shock absorption. Low pile carpeting provides a good surface for wheel chairs. They are also a good choice for people using canes or crutches because they can be firmly planted on the carpets and they will provide a non slip surface.
This beeper-sized unit comes with small wires that attach to sticky pads, also known as electrodes. These electrodes are attached on or near the site of pain. Low voltage electrical impulses are sent through the electrodes causing a tingling sensation. This sensation scrambles pain signals, reducing the amount of perceived pain.
Several of my co-tenants climbed around the edges, gathering stray bits of their professional lives. Everyone looked as dazed as I felt, and as our eyes met, we shook our heads.
That first night though, when I arrived at dinner late, all cleaned up and in a dress, I was unsure how it would all turn out. I’d called to tell them to go ahead and order, but being the friends they are, they snacked and drank and waited until I got there. If I remember right, I got a standing ovation when I walked in, or at least a toast. We ordered steaks, and I told a few stories from the day, but mostly relaxed into the normalcy of their company. In the morning, I’d have to return to disaster mode, but at the table my final step of the day kicked in: Loss helps you appreciate what you still have.
