His study employed data on nearly all admissions to acute care hospitals in Florida between 2000 and 2009, linking the admissions to the medical malpractice history of the attending physician. From that data, Dr. Jena investigated whether physicians in seven specialties with higher average hospital charges in a year were less likely to face an allegation of malpractice in the following year, adjusting...

‘Forgotten Christmas’ campaign promotes giving with eternal value

October 12, 2016

Gospel for Asia is launching its “Forgotten Christmas” campaign this year to encourage and show Christians how to make an eternal difference with their gifts. By donating to help people across the world, they can change lives while sharing the love of Jesus in a practical way. Gospel for Asia itself hopes to supply thousands of gifts through this year’s “Forgotten Christmas” initiative to help free people from the cycle of poverty.  “Jesus told us that when we give to ‘one of the least of these,’ we’re actually giving to Him,” said Gospel for Asia’s founder and director, Dr. K.P. Yohannan. “By caring for those in need, we’re fulfilling Christ’s command.” Americans spend about $600 million on Christmas gifts each year. Yet many of those gifts don’t address real needs, and they’re often later returned, put aside or discarded. GFA’s “Forgotten Christmas”...

Girl Dreams of Being a Dragon In New Picture Book

October 12, 2016

Katie Newell, author and illustrator of a new picture book, I’d Rather Be A Dragon, is encouraging kids to be themselves in a vibrant story of a girl who wants to be dragon instead of a princess. The main character is inspired in part by Katie’s own children, who supply an endless stream of creativity and imagination (and also spend a fair amount of time pretending to be dragons). Before beginning to pen the story, Newell initially had two images that kept coming to mind. One was a girl gazing out a castle window, and the other was a dragon soaring above the clouds. From there things blossomed and grew into a book that celebrates quirks, encourages imagination, and most of all - reminds kids that they are awesome exactly as they are. “We live at a time where it’s extra confusing to be a kid, there’s so much information available 24/7, and a lot of different voices telling you who you should and shouldn’t be. I wanted to...

Charmed FIR Mats passes the EMF Test

October 12, 2016

Charmed FIR (far infrared rays) Mats have recently been tested for EMF (electromagnetic field) emissions and passed with flying colors.  The areas of these mats which make contact with the body have been proven to emit no health-threatening EMFs. EMFs have been under scrutiny for many years.  With the advent of microwaves, cell phones and many other electronics now commonly in use, concern has risen about the short term and long term effects on human health.  Since the body partially operates with its own electrical system, there has been concern over exposure to EMFs emitted by these devices and their effect on the body’s functions.   Founder and CEO of Charmed FIR Mats, Barbara Carmichael, issued a statement regarding their product on this issue, “I have personally tested these mats myself for any dangerous levels of EMFs and found no danger in using our product.  There are no harmful EMFs emitted from the mat where direct...

Finance Experts Assert Rolling Over DROP Funds Is No Simple Task for Participants

October 11, 2016

Participants in the Florida Retirement System Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP) are often unprepared to decide exactly how to collect their DROP payment when their employment comes to an end. Since these payments can be substantial, the decision on how to receive the funds can significantly impact their retirement finances over the long term. The DROP program is a qualified retirement plan available to eligible Florida Retirement System (FRS) Pension Plan members, which includes state and county employees. According to a report from the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability (OPPAGA), there are two perspectives on why the DROP program was created in 1998. One perspective is that the plan was intended to be an early retirement incentive to reduce payroll costs by encouraging older, presumably higher paid, employees to leave the workforce. A second perspective holds that DROP was intended to be a tool for retaining highly experienced employees...

Episcopal Priest Goes to Rome - Life Changing

October 12, 2016

In the midst of our frenzied, hectic world, it’s nice to hear good news. A priest goes to Rome. And he discovers a renewed sense of hope. The Rev. Dr. Chip Graves, an Episcopal priest serving Trinity Episcopal Church in Huntington, WV, takes a pilgrimage to Rome. Dr. Graves had been to Rome before, some 35 years ago. And he’s not new to travel, having done missionary work across the globe. But this trip was different, life changing. Beyond the aesthetic beauty found in ancient Rome, Dr. Graves discovered a renewed sense of hope. Within the past two weeks, Dr. Graves, along with 25 other Episcopal clergy and friends, toured many of Rome’s ancient Christian sites. At every turn, they discovered the love of God in worship, art, and architecture. For thousands of years, Christians had come to these sacred places to worship God. However, the most compelling experience on this journey was not found in the past; but in the contemporary. A Christian worship service...
