Preventive Health Screening, Why Do It?

Many health conditions can be silent until they progress to the point of causing symptoms. Physicians don’t do preventive health screenings if an individual isn’t experiencing any issues. But what if there is a way to prevent the health conditions before they arise. The answer to this is Life Line Screening. This is a non-profit company that screens people across the nation. Their scheduling is flexible and there is always a time available to fit most schedules. Preventive health care is a must but so many ignore that aspect of their health until health issues begin.Life Line Screening has three methods of checking more than a dozen kinds of illnesses. They can also detect risk factors so that the individual is educated in how to change certain aspects of their lifestyle to prevent certain health conditions from developing or progressing. The three methods are EKG, the ultrasound, and the finger-stick blood screening.

The EKG is a simple, noninvasive test. It reads the individual’s heart beats by having electrodes placed in specific areas of the chest. If an irregular heartbeat is detected, then proper steps can be taken to get the heartbeats back in rhythm. The ultrasound is another noninvasive test. A wand is placed on the abdomen or chest of the individual and moved around to show different views of the individual’s insides.

Clear images will come up on the screen by using high frequency waves. This method can check the individual’s organs, tissues, and vessels. Last is the finger-stick blood screening. This screening is done by pricking the padding of the finger, then a few droplets of blood are taken to be tested. This test checks conditions like diabetes, cholesterol, liver enzymes and C-reactive proteins.Each one of these tests are reliable and the individual knows within minutes what the results are. If something comes up on the results, the results are given to the patient to share with their physician so further testing can be done.

Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC sued New Hampshire Insurance Company for breach of contract. The lawsuit was regarded the settlement of claims that had previously been made by the general manager, Danny Ferry. The lawsuit, however, excluded the current ownership management.

AHBE, through its lawyers, said that it was insured against losses that occurred due to employment practices. The current AHBE management stated that they were aware of the ongoing suit but declined to comment further on the Case. The amount claimed was kept confidential. The lawsuit said that the insurance company had failed to participate in any defense applications. The insurance company had refused to accept the fact that policy had been triggered and consequently, failed to pay the claims.

According to ESPN, it was an obligation of AIG to pay and acknowledge that Mr. Ferry’s claims had triggered a policy. The lawsuit clearly stated that the allegations made by the Entertainment Company were legal and within the policy coverage. It was, therefore, the responsibility of the insurance company to cover the claims.

The AHBE former bosses also sought an additional 50 percent penalty due to attorney charges and unpaid losses incurred.-

Bob Reina: Creator and Great Man

It is rare in today’s society to find someone that is not only a great person, but they have also created a great product. Oftentimes, when someone has created something and comes into great wealth, it changes them and not always for the better. In fact, sometimes it changes them in a bad way and they aren’t the same person. They become greedy, selfish, and sometimes people don’t even remember the person they thought they once knew. In the case of Bob Reina, it is actually the opposite. The more Talk Fusion has grown and the more money he has made, the better person he has become. It has had the opposite change on him. He was always a good person, but now he has the resources to use that wealth for something positive and something good.

The company has been around since 2007 and ever since they first opened up, they have been about helping people and making a difference. They figured if they were going to make this great product which includes video email, video conference, and video chat, why not use it to help others out in other avenues of life? I read a recent story that brought a tear to my eye because it shows the true measure of Bob Reina. He donated $1 million to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. As an animal lover, it was impossible not be immensely moved by that donation.

You don’t find people like Bob Reina every day. He is tireless in his efforts to help people, change the world, and make it a better place. It is truly 24/7/365 for him. In fact, he looks for ways to help people. He is always looking for companies to help, people to help, and as I mentioned, animals.

Bob knows he is a lucky man and if he can’t share that luck and that good fortune with others, what is the point of it all, really? These are the kinds of questions that a thoughtful man like Bob asks himself each and every night before he goes to bed.
