2010-08-21
"Running faster on the business owner's treadmill simply does not work," says business freedom fighter Richard Keeves, founder of the new online business service My Business Freedom. "It may be easy enough to start or buy a small business, but building it as a business and not just 'self employment' is often a different thing altogether. Self-employment in your own business can become like a treadmill, and it can be very painful to get off it - unless you re-shape the business first."

The Best Sleep Apnea Treatment: CPAP vs. Oral Appliances. A Question of Compliance and Effectiveness. Oral Appliances Win the Compliance Award. CPAP is the Best First Choice for Morbidly Obese Patient

2010-08-21
What is the best sleep apnea treatment? It is not CPAP, according to a recent study that showed 60% of patients abandon CPAP use. At least it is not the best treatment for the 60% of patients who abandoned it. This does not mean CPAP is not the most effective treatment, what it means is no matter how effective a treatment may be, it is a poor treatment if it is not used.
