Good Hunting Equals Safe Hunting, Part II

With deer season just around the corner, most hunters already have plans for their first trip of the season. Hunting is a hugely popular sport, with approximately 12.5 million hunters in the United States alone. Whether you hunt on public or private lands, and whether you hunt deer or duck, given its popularity, one thing that is certain is that you are not alone. But combined with nature, these other hunters almost always present a challenge to a safe and successful hunting season. In short, though hunting is a sport, it has certain inherent dangers which require careful attention to avoid. While the issue of gun safety was previously addressed, other unpredictable issues such as other hunters, nature and the land itself are equally important.

Good Hunting Equals Safe Hunting, Part I

As the weather turns colder, people around the country are preparing for traditional fall and winter activities. While for many that means football and holidays, others are gearing up for the multiple hunting seasons this time of year brings. Hunters are planning their trips, upgrading their gear, buying their permits or licenses, all the while imagining bagging that twelve-point deer or thirty-pound wild turkey. But any experienced hunter will tell you that though hunting is fun and exciting, it should always be taken deadly seriously. While jokes abound about the politician who bagged his biggest contributor, or the group of hunters who took out an entire herd of wild beers, hunting safety is no laughing matter.

Decrease Reported in Cost of Workers' Compensation

A recent report by the nonprofit National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI) revealed some surprising changes in the overall cost of workers’ compensation. The annual report, “Workers' Compensation: Benefits, Coverage, and Costs” is a comprehensive examination of workers’ compensation expenses on a national and state level for each individual fiscal year. The most recent publication, released in August 2011 for the fiscal year 2009, showed a number of shifts in costs and coverage that in many cases may be attributed to the ongoing financial troubles of the nation.

Sleep Apnea Increases Risk of Accidents

Twenty years ago, most people had never heard of the medical condition known as sleep apnea. We certainly knew of people who always seemed tired regardless of hours slept or a chronic snorer. But how many knew that these problems were often related to a larger medical issue? Today, however, most us not only have heard of sleep apnea, we are aware that it has been linked to an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart problems and stroke. And yet, despite all the information available on sleep apnea, too few know of its disturbing link to traffic accidents and fatalities.
