A 5,000 Year Old Remedy

The mere thought of needles causes most people to cringe.
There’s a good reason for this, as these pointy shards of metal are closely associated with the subject of pain. But, here is the irony. For thousands of years, practitioners of Chinese medicine have utilized the insertion of needles to treat not only pain, but various diseases as well.

How to Ask for a Raise
Negotiating for a raise is scary. It’s especially scary when employers are substituting technology for people, moving business offshore, downsizing their workforce, and converting permanent jobs into project-length positions.
