Commercial Motor Vehicles: Brake Safety Week is September 16 – 22

Commercial Motor Vehicles: Brake Safety Week is September 16 – 22Here in Kentucky and across the country, trucking safety violations pose a huge risk to others on the road.

And the consequences of being involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer can be devastating, considering the size of the truck compared to the size of a passenger vehicle or motorcycle.

 Youth Sports, Concussions, and Brain TraumaSports programs have important benefits for kids—improving fitness and coordination, developing teamwork and people skills. However, many popular sports can put children at risk for traumatic brain injury, typically in the form of concussions. Because children are young with developing brains, they are more prone to concussion damage, and studies show that people who suffer concussions at a young age have an increased risk of suffering a second one later.

Baby’s Health and Size

Two important things in your prenatal period are your baby's health, and your baby's size. An important indicator of the baby's health can be ascertained though an ultrasound where they take a wand, and put some jelly on your stomach, and use ultrasonic waves that are able to measure all areas of your baby – from arms, legs, heart, and brain. That usually occurs at twenty weeks. If you have any concerns about that ultrasound, or later in your pregnancy, do not be afraid to ask your OB to repeat it later during your pregnancy.
