  11. Browsers ~ Why You Might Want To Switch
    As a website designer, I am constantly frustrated with how poorly most "browsers" (like Internet Explorer and FireFox) display my work. The most difficult thing to create and display is a Table, but by using the established conventions of HTML documentation (tags) one can create great beauty while also displaying data. Unfortunately, when software designers ignore those conventions when they update their browsers, they do a disservice to me AND to you. That is why I recommend Google Chrome as the ONLY decent browser on the Planet. Take a look at these 3 examples to see what I mean.

  12. Chiropractic and Care For Veterans
    A Chiro.Org article collection
    The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently began a 2-phased approach to introduce chiropractic care to its complement of health care services. In 1999, Public Law 106-117 [4] authorized VA to provide chiropractic care by purchasing these services from private sector chiropractors. VA Directive 2000-014, issued May 5, 2000, established VA’s first policy on chiropractic care and enabled VA facilities to begin purchasing chiropractic care. Subsequently, in 2001, Public Law 107-135 [5] added chiropractic care to the standard medical benefits available to all eligible VA patients and authorized VA to deliver these services on-site at a minimum of 21 medical facilities. VA Directive 2004–035, issued July 16, 2004, updated VA chiropractic policy and enabled VA facilities to begin delivering on-station chiropractic care by hiring and/or contracting with licensed doctors of chiropractic (DCs).
