Sixty-five percent of working women who are caregivers report having to make workplace adjustments that include having to go in late to work, leave early, take time off, request unpaid leave, shift from a full-time job to a part-time job (which usually means losing benefits), turn down promotions, or quit working.

What can students do to prevent the spread of germs?
Students average four colds each school year, which are caused by being exposed to new viruses. Getting students in the habit of washing their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds is the most effective way of preventing the spread of colds, the flu and viruses. Make sure students wash their hands after sneezing, coughing, visiting the restroom, touching animals and coming in from the playground.
If you are going off to college, pick up some antiseptic wipes to wipe surfaces. Bathroom surfaces in the dorms, library tables or the desk in your dorm room are particularly germy places.
Are canned kipper snacks or canned sardines better for me?
For those who may not know, Kippers are split, smoked, salted herring. Herring are high in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. You may want to limit the amount of Kippers if from larger Herring, as they may contribute a greater amount of mercury or PCB's (an environmental contaminant). Sardines are also high in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. Since they are much smaller fish, they contribute much less mercury to the diet. So then, which is better? I would say go with the canned sardines. You have a lower exposure to mercury and less salt as well. Throwing in some Kippers once in a while won't be the end of the world though.Helpful? 6 people found this helpful.
