Don’t Swallow Your Gum!

Don't Swallow Your Gum!True or False?  The average person swallows eight spiders per year.  I was extremely happy to read reasons why this is an unlikely statement in the new printing of the book Don’t Swallow Your Gum! by Dr. Aaron E. Carroll and Dr. Rachel C. Vreeman.  And, no, gum doesn't stay in your stomach for 7 years if you swallow it.

From Fired to Hired

Fired to HiredThe job search process over the past year has become agonizing for many people.  Trying to get noticed by prospective employers who want online-only, one-way communication with you can make the toughest person throw their hands in the air.  Last year, Tory Johnson wrote Fired to Hired: Bouncing Back from Job Loss to Get to Work Right Now.  It’s the most practical, information-packed book I’ve seen out on the subject.  It was recently featured on the Dave Ramsey Show.
