First vaping death in Florida raises questions about response

The past few months have seen hundreds of cases of lung injuries related to the use of vaping products or e-cigarettes. In some instances, the resulting respiratory distress has been so severe that the patients did not recover. Last week the Centers for Disease Control reported one death in Florida related to vaping. The fatality, the first reported in the state, is one of 12 that have occurred across the country per the CDC's report. 

How can I find a good home contractor?

If you own your home in Florida, there may well come a time when you need or want to hire a contractor to do some work for you. Even the homeowner who is eager to dive into remodeling projects on their own may choose to use a professional for certain jobs. It can be a bit scary to think about how to choose a contractor, especially if you have heard horror stories about people being taken advantage of by contractors who are not completely honest. However, there are steps you can take to avoid falling into this type of situation.

Eating while driving: A deadly distraction

Nearly every driver has faced the same challenges – desperate to save time and multi-task while behind the wheel. Unfortunately, anything that takes attention from what's going on around the car can ultimately be dangerous to us and other drivers. Distractions can be lumped into numerous categories and while Florida has several laws in place to punish cell phone use, drivers can still be distracted by eating, reading, personal grooming, manipulating a GPS unit, manipulating in-car audio systems and arguing with passengers.

Workers struggle in increasing temperatures

Florida residents enjoy warm weather virtually all year long, making it a popular place for people to vacation and to relocate to from colder climates. However, the sun and heat that brings many enjoyable experiences can also put people who work outside at risk of developing heat-related illnesses. In some extreme situations, workers across the country have even died as a result of these experiences.
