Patient Care at North American Spine

I’ve had problems with my back in the past.  But I keep reading about the reputable doctors that are signing with North American Spine to continue their work in developing new technology to treat spinal problems.  Thought that seemed cool, so I gave the service a try, and was pretty amazed at how much the doctors really cared about resolving my health problems.

Bruce Levenson brings business and philanthropy together

Bruce Levenson is perhaps best known as the owner of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise and a successful business person who has spanned many industries from the 1970s onwards. However, a side to Levenson that is becoming increasingly known to the general public is the interesting and varied approach he takes to using his wealth to affect the lives of others in the Washington DC area of the US. Amongst the philanthropic activities Levenson has undertaken is a large level of funding provided for the US Holocaust Museum and donations made to ensure the opening of The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland.

Levenson began his business career in the 1970s as a journalist for the Washington Star, as he worked through the day he spent his evenings working on a newsletter for the oil industry, the Oil Express. The newsletter was a success and led to the expansion of the business to include a wide range of newsletters and real time data being offered across industries as diverse as the IT industry and communications. The United Communications Group now offers wide ranging options for many industries to keep up with data and analysis on many different levels. The success of UCG also allowed Levenson to purchase the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise and become involved with a variety of basketball based community programs.

It is in philanthropic activities, often alongside his wife, Karen, that Bruce Levenson has made his greatest mark. The establishment of the US Holocaust Museum was spurred on by Karen Levenson’s mother being a Holocaust survivor herself and the family feeling the need to keep the memory of those involved and the issues it raises alive in the minds of younger people in the US. The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership teaches both undergraduates and graduates how to work in a nonprofit environment and how to become a leader in developing new and existing charitable programs. Many of the graduates of the center go on to work in the Washington DC area, with the center also looking at an international approach to philanthropy with programs developed in India and Africa. The work of the Levenson family to improve the lives of others is now reaching across the globe as the sports team owner hopes to improve the lives of as many people as possible.

When Grief Becomes Worse Than Expected

The passing of a loved one is never a positive experience. Grief and bereavement are common psychological pains people feel. For some, the cloud of depression lifts up fairly quickly even though an overall sense of melancholy won’t go away. For others, depression remains a constant in their life. Shaking grief is next to impossible and, unless the grieving person is able to free him/herself from such sentiments, the feelings could prove debilitating.

A report in the New England Journal of Medicine has serious news for those who are overwhelmed with grief. Unless steps are taken to get out of bereavement related depression within six months, the psychological problems could give way to physical ones.

The affects of grief are not psychosomatic said Flavio Maluf. People could end up not eating regularly and denying themselves nutrients, Eucatex noted. Important health-boosting exercise sessions are skipped. A diminished quality of life ends up becoming the norm.

What can a person do when he or she is suffering from grief related psychological strain? For one, seeing a therapist is a smart idea. While no amount of therapy is going to bring a loved one back, the sessions could make grief more manageable.

Taking part in physical exercise could prove beneficial. Speak with a doctor about whether or not a workout program is advisable. In addition to improving physical health, exercise has mental stimulation benefits.

Do not downplay the effects of grief and bereavement. They are more serious than most assume.

Rugged Boston Handles a Record-Breaking Snowfall


Rugged Boston residents, like Fersen Lambranho, are coping with snowy conditions. Snowfall in the past two weeks broke the record for the most snow in New England in 37 years; the community braced for more snow on the way Thursday and over the weekend. The weather caused many cancellations and postponements.

Public schools will remain closed in Boston until February 23rd, as a result of the weather. Although Amtrak remained open, it cancelled trains running from New Brunswick, Maine to Boston due to the massive snows.

The weather contributed to some accidents, and a number of local Boston hospitals allowed personnel to sleep at work sites in order to remain available. The police escorted some other medical workers to their jobs.

In the midst of the crisis, a couple struggling to reach a hospital in Massachusetts on Monday night encountered delays due to the snow. The husband parked the car early Tuesday morning and contacted emergency assistance, and a State Patrol officer arrived in time to help deliver a baby boy.

Logan Airport in Boston reported that in the last two and half weeks, some six feet of snow have fallen. The most recent snowfall caused the cancellation of hundreds of passenger flights. Subway traffic also came to a halt on account of the weather. However, some areas of Boston maintained limited bus service, despite the heavy accumulation. This week, Boston expects another 3 inches of snow.

Many Dog Owners Choose Beneful For Their Pet

Some pet owners tend to feed their dogs the same food that they are having at their own dinner table. Dogs should not eat the same food as humans, because much of it is overprocessed, and not good for a dog or any animal. In fact, much of the food that people eat today, is not even good enough for human consumption. Dogs need to have their own type of food, and Beneful is an excellent choice of dog food for any dog that a pet owner may have. Beneful is a creation of the Nestlé company, and many dog owners have chosen to use this brand of dog food.

There are both dry and wet versions of Beneful available for dogs, and many owners report that their pets like both types of dog food. Beneful is a very flavorful type of dog food. No matter which type of Beneful, many dogs enjoy the food that they are eating. Some owners prefer that their dogs do not eat meat, or maybe the dog has some type of allergy to meat. Because it’s understandable that some dogs cannot consume meats, a soy version of Beneful was created for dogs, so they can still have the same health benefits as eating regular Beneful.

There are several different flavors of Beneful available, giving the pet owner a variety of foods to give to their dogs. The owner must decide if their dog would do better with wet versions of Beneful, or the dry versions of the food. Some owners may feed their dog the dry versions of Beneful, and only on special occasions, or as a treat, they may switch to the wet version. It’s completely up to the pet owner how they would like to feed their pet, and what type of Beneful is more pleasing to their pet.

Great dog owners will care for their pets no matter what, and they take care in everything they give to their dog. Dog owners that walk their dog, groom them, and even play with them, are pet owners that want only the best for their animal. Pet owners who want the very best for their dogs, usually, choose to feed them Beneful. In fact, Beneful is the fourth most popular dog food on the market today, proving that it’s very popular with dogs, as well as their owners. When choosing a dog food in the future, choose Beneful.

Sam Tabar’s Newest Investment Helps Women

THINX recently sparked the interest of prominent attorney and capital strategist, Sam Tabar. Inspired by their business model, Tabar decided to invest with the young company. THINX began as a Kickstarter campaign, but now the start up has grown. They focus on fashionable and comfortable underwear for women during menstruation, but they also provide support to women on a global scale. Now featuring five styles of underwear, each purchase helps women in need across the globe. Every underwear purchase helps African and American women by providing reusable sanitation pads through AFRIpads.

For one purchase, women in need are given seven of these cloth pads. For many of these women who lack the resources to deal with menstruation, they are forced to stay at home during this time rather than going to work and school. THINX has given these women the resources to handle menstruation and continue on with their lives. The female creators of THINX first met Tabar through mutual acquaintances, and he was not looking to invest into new companies at that time. However, the women’s creation inspired Tabar. He regards the company’s business model highly because it allows people to consider issues on a global scale and contribute just by purchasing the company’s underwear. Success through their Kickerstarter campaign and Crowdsourcing has allowed THINX to grow. They now sell products through their website and also wholesale distribution. They continue to change the lives of women every single day.

He graduated from Columbia law the same year that my son, Kevin, did. Kevin has been at me for some time now about letting someone work with me on my portfolio so that I won’t have to worry about my finances in the future. In other words, that’s Kevin saying Mom, you’re getting old! But he’s probably right, something about diversifying my portfolio and maximizing my estate. I’m writing about all this because it was the funniest thing, but just yesterday I came across something about Sam Tabar on CNBC talking about being financially prepared and investment tips for the new year. I think I just might have Kevin give him a call to see if we can talk money.

Kevin was not lying when he said this Sam Tabar is some guy. According to, Tabar has worked himself into being considered an industry leader with his financial business strategy being one of a kind. He started out as a partner in a smaller firm and has developed a following for making smart capital investment decisions from a legal standpoint for his clients.

His dedication to the educational process of his clients in a way they can understand is one of the most valuable assets to his client base.
