  3. Health Pearl #489 - Multivitamins in Your Daily Shake

    More often I talk to many of you who have started to incorporate daily shakes as part of your health improvement program. For some it is a protein shake, others add fruit and yoghurt, and there are those who juice vegetables, fruit and other items into a refreshing morning drink or in-between pick-me-up.

    And as I highlighted last week the need for, as well as the poor quality of many available DAILY MULTIVITAMINS, this week I’d like to suggest adding a powdered or maybe a liquid MULTIVITAMIN to that daily drink. Great-tasting products are available that provide a wide variety of quality vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, vegetables, fruits, enzymes and other goodies in ONE convenient daily serving.

    By adding this to your daily shake or green-drink, you TURBO-CHARGE your energy, your health and you reduce your cravings for unhealthy snacks. Besides, there are fewer pills to swallow!

    If you or your school-aged children haven’t experienced this way of taking a DAILY MULTIVITAMIN, then let us help you select one …at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center, on North 19th Avenue.

  7. How Decedents’ Quality Of Life At The Time Of Death Affects Others : NPR

    Research indicates when a partner dies happy and contented, that stays with the other person a long time, but when a partner dies unhappy and in pain, those feelings stay with the other one, too.

  8. M&G Polymers USA, LLC v. Tackett | The Oyez Project at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

    Retirees from the Point Pleasant Plant in Apple Grove, West Virginia⎯owned by M&G since 2000⎯sued after M&G announced that the retirees would be required to contribute to the cost of their medical benefits. The retirees, who had been employees of Apple Grove before the plant was bought by M&G, entered into a series of collective bargaining negotiations through their unions regarding healthcare benefits. Just as earlier versions had included, the 2005-2008 collective bargaining agreement (CBA) included a provision that “capped”, or limited, the company’s annual contribution towards employee healthcare benefits. In 2006, M&G announced it was requiring employees to cover their individual costs once that cap was exceeded in response to the shifting healthcare landscape. The retirees claimed that language in the effective CBA promised full coverage of healthcare benefits for life without any contribution requirement and sued the company because that “capping” provision was not included in the pension and insurance booklet or adopted by the union on behalf of employees in the latest agreement. The retirees sued under the Labor Management Relations Act (LMRA) and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).

    The district court dismissed the retirees’ claim, and they appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which reversed and remanded the case back to the district court. The district court found in favor of the retirees but ordered that their healthcare benefits be reinstated to the post-2007 version that included employee contributions. Both parties appealed the decision, and the Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s judgement.
