Adoptees Devote Themselves To Finding Birth Parents

fbpEver since she could remember, Sarah knew she was adopted. She loved her parents very much and never felt different from other children in any way. If anyone ever asked her about it, she would simply say that her parents adopted her when she was a baby because her real parents couldn’t take care of her and wanted the best for her.

You Do Not Want Any Surprises When It Comes To HDD Recovery

It is no secret that the actual HDD recovery process is generally kept under lock and key by the provider. There is a reason for this, so that we cannot learn how to do it on our own and save the cash in our bank account!

There are a few steps I have been able to track on my own since having to go through the process a time or two. First, you get your drive to the recipient. Either drive it there to drop off or mail it to …

Teenagers With High Blood Pressure? What?

twhbpJerrod was tall, muscular, and the best center fielder his high school baseball team ever had. So he didn’t give a second thought to the routine physical he had to have before the season.

“You’re generally in good shape,” said Dr. Parsons, “but your blood pressure is high. Well have to measure it again in a mountain or so.”

There was a moment of silence. Then Jerrod told the doctor it couldn’t be. Fifteen-year-olds don’t have a high blood pressure, especially healthy 15 years old like he was. Adults have …

War On Drugs: Still Relevant?

wodYou’ve probably seen videotapes of drugs “busts” on evening television, especially if millions of dollars or huge quantities of illegal chemicals were seized. In fact, it’s longer shocking for the evening news to show three police officers unloading bales of confiscated marijuana from trucks or displaying tables loaded with cocaine for the TV cameras.

These scenes gives us a glimpse of the vast, invisible empire of drug dealing. The sun never sets on this illicit enterprise that feeds South American coca harvesters while it ruins the lives of drugs users …

Injuries Take A Toll On Us All

itatouWhat do you and Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller have in common? You and basketball star Michael Jordan? You…and tennis veteran Jimmy Connors?

Injuries. Getting hurt. Twisting it, pulling it, spraining it, breaking it. Now granted, our injuries don’t make the evening news. But whether we sprain an ankle on the pro tennis circuit or just jogging through the back yard, it hurts … and we want it fixed, pronto.

And that’s the other thing we have in common with today’s sports stars – the treatment we receive for injuries. Breakthroughs …

Changing Your Email? It Ain’t Easy!

cyeOF ALL THE PROMISES MADE TO CONVINCE US TO SPEND LONG HOURS AT A KEYBOARD WHILE LOOKING INTO A small, fuzzy screen, e-mail has delivered best. It has permanently benched us from the unproductive game of phone tag and saved the lives of countless trees. It has also played a significant role in our somewhat successful attempt to dam the flood of information coming at us. We, like millions of e-mail users, have come to rely on it.

Get Those Expenses Straight!!

gtesWhen translator Benno Groeneveld first struck out on his own, he didn’t bother to invoice clients for business calls. Why not? He didn’t have the time to sort through every call he made when his statement-arrived. But within no time, Groeneveld’s monthly phone bill skyrocketed to $200 (of which $150 was client-related). So when the St. Paul, Minnesota, businessman discovered his long-distance carrier offered call coding–which automatically categorizes client calls by account–he signed up. “For me, it makes a difference in what I charge,” he says.

Mailing Lists – How We Hate Them!!!

tlgEverybody knew Wait, the neighborhood butcher when I was growing up. Walt, in turn, knew everybody. He knew that my mother ordered a pot roast for Sundays. He knew that Mr. Schlampp wanted fish on Fridays, and that Mrs. Levine bought kosher food. He knew our addresses and phone numbers, when the grandkids were coming home to visit, our birthdays and our paydays, and whose charge accounts were in arrears. Walt’s customer database was in his head.

Wait used his database for marketing. He called us if he had a …

No Need For Windows? Er, Maybe…

tlgNearly every profession has been transformed in some way by technology, and graphic design is no exception. The drafting table has been replaced by the desktop computer, which performs some of the most exacting-and formerly messy–tasks. In addition, where light-filled workspaces used to be considered a necessity, that same light now tends to drown out images displayed on a large-screen monitor–the graphic designer’s most important tool.

That’s what Washington, D.C.-based graphic designer Lloyd Greenberg discovered when he moved his home office from upstairs to downstairs to make room for his …
