This story begins in the early 1980’s when teens of generation X were exploring the world of music louder than ever before. Portable music had been around for decades thanks to the 8-track and cassette players, but children of the 80’s kicked the volume up a notch – with amplified music right by the ear. The Boombox had arrived and music was now amplified to a decibel level that the entire block could hear. It was evident that hearing health had taken a back seat.
Fast-forward to 2015 and you’ll find a new generation with a similar attitude in regards to hearing health. The latest must-have music accessories include ear buds and noise canceling headphones. When enjoyed in moderation these accessories can be a unique way to experience music. Unfortunately, the term moderation is rarely practiced by today’s youth. The alarming trend is to experience music at the loudest volume with little concern for the consequences. And if they’re not careful, soon they’ll need a hearing aid powered by Rayovac hearing aid batteries. More...

Winter weather can get the best of us. Severe cold and wind make it unpleasant to be outside, and snow and ice make it unsafe to navigate roads and sidewalks. It can even get bad enough to shut down highways and airports or cut off electricity to homes and offices. That’s why it’s essential to be prepared for extreme changes to your everyday routine.
Preparing your home or apartment can take a lot of planning. In addition to an adequate supply of water and nonperishable food, you’ll need to have ways to stay warm and light important areas of your home during the extended nighttime hours.
If you have an emergency generator, you’re one step ahead of the game. But if you’re like most of us, you’ll need to be ready to operate without electricity should the power to your house ever go out. More...
