Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Are you ready for some football!? As football camps commence and America begins to prep for the upcoming season, sports fans are gearing up for the country's most popular sport. Indeed, as summer eases into the fall season, it's a grand time to be a sports fan, what with football starting and baseball heading into the stretch run for the playoffs. Whatever your sports heart desires, however, there's a certain code of conduct when you're supporting your favorite team at the next home game. Remember, there's a fine line between a rabid fan and an obnoxious one. To ensure your next trip to the arena or stadium is as relaxing and successful as ever, here are some essential items to bring and keep in mind: * Alcohol consumption and watching sports go hand in hand. Certainly enjoy a nice tall beer and some good-natured booing with your fellow fans, but remember to be a good citizen and respectful of your stadium neighbor(s). * Pack binoculars and seat cushions. You'll never be more comfortable and glued to the action when you can see the plays and players as if you're on the field. * Bring some snacks and drinks. If your venue allows, it's always wise to keep hydrated with bottles of water. * Don't forget your spittoon. Being at an arena or stadium crammed shoulder to shoulder with someone can be uncomfortable and leave you exposed to say the least. If you're a smokeless tobacco user, there's even less opportunity to take a discreet "dip" and spit. That is, unless you own a portable spittoon created by Atlanta-based FLASR. These new 4-ounce pocket-sized spittoons are designed to allow users to easily open and close with just one hand, making them ideal items to bring to the next sports event or any other public setting so you can privately enjoy your tasty tobacco. Another advantage to the FLASR flask is its advanced closing mechanism that ensures it stays securely closed when not in use, eliminating the risk of any messy spills or leaks.

Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Believe it or not, cooler weather is on the way. For most parts of the country, mid-September brings a break in the heat, and signals a good time to turn off your air conditioner and turn on your ceiling fan to start saving energy and money. This Sept. 18 marks the third annual National Ceiling Fan Day (NCFD). Many major ceiling fan manufacturers, the American Lighting Association (ALA) and leading energy-conservation groups invite everyone to join the fight to reduce energy consumption by turning off their central cooling systems and relying on ceiling fans to save trillions of kilowatt hours of energy consumption. As an extra incentive to participate in the energy-saving effort, many fan retailers are offering discounts to consumers in conjunction with NCFD. You can find a list of local ALA-member fan retailers at AmericanLightingAssoc.com. If every American participates in NCFD by turning off their AC and using fans for their cooling needs, the United States will save enough energy to power the entire city of New York for months. And it saves money too. Operating a fan can cost as little as $1 per month. That is quite a savings compared to approximately $100 per month to run an AC unit in a typical home. Initiated by fan manufacturer Fanimation, NCFD is supported by other ALA-member fan manufacturers, including Casablanca Fan Company, Craftmade, Emerson Ceiling Fans, Hunter Fan Company, Kichler, Matthews Fan Company, Minka-Aire, Monte Carlo Ceiling Fan Company, Progress Lighting, Quorum International, Regency Ceiling Fans, Savoy House, Sea Gull Lighting, The Modern Fan Co., Vaxcel International and Westinghouse Lighting, as well as The Home Depot, Lowe's Companies, Inc. and the ALA. Many of the nation's leaders in energy conservation and efficiency are also on board. Those supporters include the U.S. Green Building Council, Alliance to Save Energy, Affordable Comfort, Inc., Environmental and Energy Study Institute and Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance. For more information on how to save energy with ceiling fans and for a list of ALA-member fan retailers and manufacturers, go to AmericanLightingAssoc.com.

Five words or less(NewsUSA) - A concert is more than an evening excursion. This is your chance to go out in the town, mingle with friends, and discover the hottest new up-and-coming artists to add to your everyday playlist. For some, this all seems like added pressure. Too much pressure, maybe. Is it possible to just sit back and enjoy a concert without fudging the details? We think so. Here are a few tips to guarantee the best of the best concert nights: Know the Band It's every music-lovers dream: showing up to concerts on a whim, anywhere, anytime. Unfortunately, this is a recipe for social blunders. You know, the mistakes that your friends won't stop reminding you about for weeks. Before you go, Google the artist, especially if they're new in town. Is this a head-banging rock concert or a sophisticated evening of light jazz? Let the genre help you pick your attire and your attitude. Plus-Ones Preferred Spread the word, and make an event of it. Use this can't-miss concert as a way to catch up with your pals, get to know the other folks in the office or surprise a special someone. Keep It Classy We know that you love your favorite drink. But keep it classy. No one wants to carry you home, and even fewer people still paid money to hear you singing along with the band. Go Prepared Make sure you have what you need for the evening. In addition to the basics, like your keys, your cell phone and a pair of shoes, you can actually walk in, take along the accessory you use to do what you do. If you dip, consider packing a FLASR, the portable spittoon. This Atlanta-based product fits in your pocket and has a secure-locking mechanism, so you don't need to worry about embarrassing spills.

Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Camping is a favorite activity for outdoor enthusiasts across the country. There are few better ways to take in the fresh air and relax than by spending some time out in the elements without all the distractions of everyday life. However, it's important to keep in mind that the great outdoors is also home to some serious health threats -- and you may be surprised at the "biggest" culprits! While small in size, mosquitoes and ticks are out in abundance this time of year. Just one bite from an infected mosquito or tick can have chronic, and possibly fatal, consequences. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), late summer is peak time for West Nile virus infections (WNV), and transmission of the disease frequently continues into the fall as well. According to the National Pest Management Association's medical advisor, Dr. Jorge Parada, the elderly, children and those with weakened immune systems are most vulnerable to West Nile virus infections, which can be fatal in severe cases. Ticks are capable of transmitting a variety of illnesses to humans, the most common being Lyme disease. Spread by the blacklegged deer tick, Lyme disease has historically been a problem in the northeast U.S. However, an August 2015 report from the CDC found blacklegged deer ticks are expanding their territory farther in to the West and South, bringing the threat of Lyme disease with them. The National Pest Management Association offers the following tips for campers to protect themselves from mosquito and tick bites: * Always apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or IR3535 when outdoors and use as directed on the product label. * Reduce the amount of skin exposed during dusk and dawn, when certain types of mosquitoes are most active. * Avoid areas where ticks are most abundant, including high grasses and low-growing vegetation along the edge of the woods or a trail. * Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts and closed-toe shoes when outdoors. While hiking, tuck long pants into your socks to keep ticks out. * Consider investing in permethrin-treated clothing and gear for an extra level of protection and choose light-colored clothing that will make spotting ticks easier. * Inspect yourself and your companions carefully for ticks after being outdoors; finding and removing ticks in a timely manner is critical to preventing disease.

(NewsUSA) - If current trends hold, 1 in 5 Americans will have diabetes by 2025 -- and 1 in 3 by about a generation after that.So says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which rightly calls the figures "alarming." But when you think about our lifestyles -- too often sedentary, with unhealthy diets -- should we really be that surprised?"We simply cannot sustain this trajectory," says the agency's Dr. Ann Allbright.Certainly genes also play a role in explaining why 29.1 million Americans already suffer from the disease. It's characterized by the body's inability to produce, or properly use, the hormone insulin that's needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy.But when it comes to those lifestyle issues -- which, unlike genes, we can do something about -- perhaps the best advice to limit the growing epidemic of diabetes comes from Dennis Marchiori, DC, PhD, current president of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges: "Simply put, when you live healthier, you have a better chance of managing your blood sugar."The "DC" stands for doctor of chiropractic. And today's chiropractors, with a minimum of seven years of education and clinical training, are helping to address the roots of lifestyle-acquired Type II Diabetes through their emphasis on healthy living and natural lifestyles. They're also well-trained in nutrition, enabling them to construct individualized health regimens for patients that include:* Eating well-balanced meals that are low in processed sugar.* Consuming a variety of fiber-rich foods like fruit, vegetables and whole grains.* Weight management."Type II Diabetes is a preventable disease, and choosing a healthy lifestyle is critical," says the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress' Gerard Clum, DC.Of course, especially if you're new to exercise, a chiropractor's skill in manual care will also come in handy.For more information or to find a chiropractor in your area, visit www.F4CP.org/findadoctor.

Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Trade and technical positions are the bright, shining stars of the economy these days. They don't require a college degree, do provide the opportunity for a meaningful career, and they often pay very well. One industry, in particular, shines brightest among those hiring these positions: America's waste and recycling business. "These are great careers," says Sharon H. Kneiss, president and CEO of the National Waste & Recycling Association. "We do a real service for residents and business owners alike. And business is growing!" According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of waste and recycling collectors is expected to grow significantly over the next seven years. Between 2012 and 2022, more than 21,000 jobs are expected to be created -- a 16-percent growth rate. In 2012, the median annual pay for truck drivers was about $38,000. With overtime, experienced waste and recycling drivers can earn much, much more. Some workers in various cities make upwards of $100,000 when you factor in overtime. And, most jobs in the field offer generous benefits and possibilities for upwards mobility. Driving a refuse truck generally requires a commercial driver's license; however, companies are happy to train new recruits. "The advantages of driving a waste or recycling vehicle are significant: the hours are regular and predictable, the job is local, and it pays well," Kneiss said. "Plus there's job security: We're always going to need good drivers." But the opportunities in the waste and recycling industry don't end there. Mechanics and welders who work on the industry's fleet are also in significant demand. For example, the BLS reports that the 2012 median pay for a diesel mechanic was more than $42,000 per year and that the total number of jobs across all industries was expected to grow by 9 percent from 2012 to 2022 -- more than 21,000 additional positions. There are both formal and informal diesel mechanic training programs. In some cases, the company will train you. But there are also a number of programs offered by vocational schools, community colleges and adult education programs. In addition, mechanics qualified to work on compressed natural gas engines would do well to investigate the waste and recycling industry: It has one of the largest CNG truck fleets in the U.S. To learn more about opportunities in the waste and recycling industry, go to http://beginwiththebin.org/jobs.

Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Did you know that the garbage you throw out every day is a source of green energy? The gas naturally generated by landfills fuels vehicles and powers the electric grid, easing our dependence on fossil fuels and foreign oil. "Landfill gas is a resource the waste and recycling industry is proud to reliably provide 24 hours a day, seven days a week," said Sharon H. Kneiss, president and CEO of the National Waste & Recycling Association. "It's renewable energy produced in America." How does it work? Today's modern landfills are highly engineered facilities run under strict federal and state regulations to ensure protection of human health and the environment. When trash like grass clippings, banana peels and coffee grinds gets buried beneath a layer of soil in a landfill, it eventually breaks down and produces gas. Landfill operators safely collect this gas by applying a vacuum to collection wells throughout a landfill. The gas is then piped to a compression and filtering unit, where it's prepared for use by power plants and others. How much energy is generated? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, waste-based energy is the source of over 5 percent of America's renewable energy -- and there's plenty of room to grow. In March 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reported that 645 sites had landfill-gas-to-energy programs (in every state except Hawaii and Wyoming). The EPA has identified an additional 440 landfills as expansion candidates. Landfill operators are also starting to generate energy beyond gas by placing solar panels and windmills on landfills. The power produced can be fed into local electric grids for local homes and businesses. Stewards of the land Today, a landfill is designed from the start to protect the environment and public health. Later, it provides benefits even when it closes. Once a landfill has reached its permitted capacity, it is closed and engineered to keep water out by installing a cap made of clay or a synthetic material. A drainage layer, a protective soil cover and topsoil are then added to support plant growth. These spaces are transformed into parks, golf courses, wildlife refuges and other places that can be enjoyed by the entire community.

Five words or less(NewsUSA) - When you think of your favorite accessories, the items you reach for again and again, what words come to mind? Easy, convenient and portable, to name a few. When shopping for accessories for day to day use, special events, or business travel, several key factors stand out. Keep some of these points in mind to help you identify accessories that will make your life easier. * Easy: Ease of use is a top trait in everyone's favorite, go-to accessories. Whether it is a wallet with just the right number of slots, a purse with pockets in just the right places, or a smartphone case that doubles as an ID holder, the right accessories make your life easier. If you are a smokeless tobacco user, a portable spittoon that can be open and shut with one hand makes it easy to enjoy smokeless tobacco on the go. The portable spittoon from Atlanta-based FLASR features a one-hand operational design for ease of use. * Convenient: Everyone wants accessories that are convenient. Smokeless tobacco users seeking a convenient spittoon for on-the-go use will appreciate the latest product from FLASR. The 4-ounce portable spittoon is designed to stay securely shut to minimize the risk of spills and leaks when not in use, and the one-hand open/close feature is engineered to help maximize convenience and discreet use on-the-go. * Portable: The right accessories should enhance your social life, not hinder it. Nothing gets in the way on a date, or at a party or other event like a poorly designed purse that falls open, a wallet that won't close or a smartphone case that's bulky. For smokeless tobacco users, portability is paramount if they want to have a subtle spittoon on hand in order to enjoy dip, chew or snuff at an event away from home. FLASR's single-hand design and 4-ounce size is designed to fit in a pocket for easy, subtle storage that doesn't attract attention. * Personal: Of course, the best accessories are the ones that let you show some personal style, such as that unique handcrafted handbag or customized smartphone case. Smokeless tobacco users seeking a portable spittoon have a choice of several designs in the FLASR collection. For more information about the FLASR line of products, visit www.flasr.com.

(NewsUSA) - Here's a buzz phrase you'll be hearing a lot more of as part of our brave new world of health care: "integrative care settings."Not to worry: This time, if you're a patient, you may actually wind up liking what it means for you.Basically, we're talking about providing different types of care under one roof. Which makes sense when you consider that: (a) we've already begun moving away from a "sickcare" model, where many patients only visit a doctor when their health has declined to one emphasizing a more preventative "wellness-based care;" and (b) the "team approach" to care has also made headway."MDs are already focusing on sick-care, so who's the expert in wellness and preventative care?" Kenneth C. Thomas, DC, a member of the Council on Chiropractic Education, wrote in an article for the Chiropractic Summit, which brings together leading voices in fields like education, research and government.His answer, not surprisingly, was doctors of chiropractic, known for their drug-free approach to treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.But guess what? Not only have major companies already incorporated chiropractic care in their on-site health clinics -- there's that integrative approach for you -- but chiropractors are increasingly co-managing a wide variety of patients ranging from professional athletes to members of the military.And research suggests chiropractic's benefits include:* Lower health care costs* Enhanced patient outcomes* Higher patient satisfaction"I think we're looking at a more collaborative, patient-centered focus where chiropractors have an important role to play," says the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress' Gerard Clum, DC.To learn more or to locate a doctor of chiropractic in your area, visit www.F4CP.org/findadoctor.
