By lenardjohnson, published on Dec 28, 2018

Get Back In The Game With A Sports Chiropractor

By lenardjohnson, published on Oct 31, 2018

Athletes routinely push their bodies to the limit in pursuit of greatness, reaching sometimes super-human levels of prowess and ability. The downside with that greatness, however, is the accompanying risk of injury and strain. A wrong twist of the back, a bad fall or whiplash from a contact sport are just a few ways that athletes can hurt themselves with playing or training.

The largest class of athletic injuries is musculoskeletal injuries – those that affect the athlete’s movement, whether through damage or strain to their ligaments, tendons, discs, nerves, etc.... (more)

Support, Resistance & Bitcoin’s Store Of Value

By lenardjohnson, published on Oct 23, 2018

If not, here’s a basic summary: when a stock or commodity is going through volatile fluctuations, the support level is the lowest it will drop before rebound. Resistance represents the high value that the investment hits before dropping down again.

In the past few years, with big tech companies like Spotify and Snapchat going public, we’ve seen how much a huge company’s stock can flop around like a fish before finding consistent resistance and support. While getting in on an exciting tech IPO (initial public offering) can be exciting, it can also be extremely tough on the nerves.... (more)

Pros and Cons of Awning Windows

By lenardjohnson, published on Oct 8, 2018

Unlike casement windows that pivot on side-mounted hinges, awning windows pivot on hinges mounted on the top. This means they open from the bottom up, rather than from the side. Albeit providing a more modern look, as well as adding more curb appeal, awning windows can have their drawbacks. Are awning windows right for your home?

How Much Does an Awning Window Cost?

So, how much will awning windows cost you? That depends on the material, size, and manufacturer. Because of these factors, a high-quality awning window may cost you anywhere from a few hundred dollars to... (more)

3 Reasons To Buy A Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

By lenardjohnson, published on Aug 30, 2018

Cars lose a significant amount of their value as soon as they are driven off the lot, which means that if you are careful you can find a nearly-new model from 2016 or 2017 that is being sold at a deep discount from the sticker price simply because it already has a few thousand kilometers on it. What people may not know, however, is that buying a used car doesn’t need to mean foregoing some of the significant benefits that come with buying new. With Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, shoppers can get the best of both worlds.

So, what is a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle?... (more)

The Wild World Of Sporting Event Security

By lenardjohnson, published on Aug 30, 2018

And you would not be wrong for thinking so. Baseball diamonds, soccer pitches, hockey rinks, and football stadiums are built big these days; they regularly seat crowds of 20,000—50,000 people. Michigan Stadium, located in Ann Arbor, has a seating capacity of over 100,000! That’s a lot of people to keep from behaving badly.

Yet even when these spaces are packed to the rafters, you can usually only spot one security guard for every 50—100 people, and rarely more than two or three at a time. So how does such a small security corps manage to keep the population of a... (more)

By lenardjohnson, published on Aug 27, 2018

The bills are piling up, you’re facing penalty charges, late fees, and high interest rates, and you’re not sure how much longer you can keep juggling all your payments. It may be a sign that you’re insolvent, meaning you don’t have the income or assets to pay back your unsecured debts. That opens up options such as bankruptcy or a consumer proposal.

The big thing that frightens people away from bankruptcy is the belief that they could lose everything they have. In fact, there are a number of assets that are protected.
