Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate From Florida Hospital – ApopkaIf you’ve ever suffered through painful, burning-in- your-chest bouts of heartburn, you’re not alone. According to the American Gastroenterological Association, each month more than 60 million people in the United States do too. Below we asked some of our doctors and nutritionists their suggestions to help you find relief.Here’s what they had to say:Florida Hospital – Apopka offers helpful advice from doctors and nutritionists to put out the fire and stop the pain of heartburn.Rule Out Medications – If you’re taking prescription or over- the-counter medications, check with your doctor or pharmacist to see if might irritate the lining of your stomach or esophagus. Chances are they could cause pain similar to heartburn or even contribute to acid reflux.Don’t Eat These Foods – Ever enjoy a late night cheeseburger, only to have it bite you later? Try limiting fried and fatty foods, along with coffee, alcohol, chocolate, peppermint, citrus and tomato products.Eat Smaller Meals – Large meals can cause intestinal discomfort, which may contribute to acid reflux.Stay Upright After Meals – As crazy as it sounds, gravity helps keep your digestive juices in your stomach, rather than allowing it to slip into your esophagus.Sleep On An Incline – This also allows gravity to keep your stomach contents where they belong. Here’s two ways to accomplish this:Raise the head of your bed by 6” using cinderblocks or bricks under the bed’s legs.Raise your torso a bit with a wedge-shaped pillow or cushion may ease nighttime heartburn. Don’t just prop up your head with pillows. You need to raise your entire upper body to get relief.Don’t Eat Near Bedtime – If you’re eating late, give yourself 3 to 4 hours before going to bed. Why? That’s about how much time it takes for food to clear the stomach. Plus, when you’re lying in bed just after a meal, stomach acid could slip into your esophagus.Don’t Smoke – It should go without saying that smoking is bad for your health. But, you may not know that studies have shown nicotine can relax your lower esophageal sphincter and interfere with your saliva’s ability to clear acid from the esophagus. Nicotine also lowers saliva production. Your saliva has a natural antacid in it that helps alkalize stomach acid both in the stomach and what might reflux back into the esophagus. It also helps wash refluxed acids back down into the stomach.– For more information, go here.

Several registered sex offenders in Georgia are currently suing their local sheriff’s office to prevent the department from forcing them to post signs on their home to alert potential trick-or-treaters to their registered status.The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court in Macon stating that deputies broke trespassing laws to place the signs without the offender’s permission and that forcing the offenders to leave up the signs are in violation of their First Amendment rights.The practice of posting the signs began last year an area event was canceled and authorities realized that many families would be going door-to-door.Authorities sent each offender a correspondence stating that the offender must post a signs with the wording “NO TRICK-OR-TREAT AT THIS ADDRESS!! A COMMUNITY SAFETY MESSAGE FROM BUTTS COUNTY SHERIFF GARY LONG,” or face an unspecified penalty.Officers also went around to the different homes and posted signs themselves.Over 200 registered sex offenders were forced to post the signs on their homes, however, only three offenders, Christopher Reed, Reginald Holden, and Corey McClendon are listed on the lawsuit.In addition to preventing the police department from having them post the signs on their homes, the offenders are also seeking compensation for the stress, fear and humiliation the signs caused last year.The hearing to decide on whether officers are allowed to place the signs is scheduled for Thursday at 9:30 a.m.

House Democrats will unveil two articles of impeachment against President Trump today.At a press conference in the morning, Democratic leaders in the House will announce articles of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress against the President. At a Wall Street Journal event last night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked if she thought she had the votes to approve the articles.She says she hasn’t counted the votes and in fact she will hold an up or down vote so that Democrat House members don’t have to go on the record with their impeachment vote. Therefore, their constituents back home, especially in districts that Trump won, won’t know how their lawmaker voted.Democrats accuse the President of abusing his office asking Ukraine to look into how Joe Biden’s son Hunter got on the board of a Ukraine energy company under investigation for corruption. In a second impeachment hearing Monday, Nadler called Trump’s actions “clearly impeachable” and said he put his private interests ahead of the country’s well-being.

Officials in the Tampa Bay area report that human trafficking victims are being branded and sold for sex.According to Corporal Alan Wilkett, who leads Pasco County’s human trafficking task force, “It’s like branding cattle. It’s an ownership mark. Branding is when somebody — a pimp or a trafficker — will put his mark or his symbol or his sign on his victims through some sort of tattoo.”He adds that deputies know how to find the red flags of someone who is being sold for sex.Wilkett explains, “Some of the things we’re seeing are pictures — maybe a lion’s head or it may be the street name of the pimp who’s running a street track. “It could be numbers. Using certain numbers, like 16 because ‘P’ is the 16th letter of the alphabet — it means I’m being pimped.”In some trafficking cases, the tattoo could actually be a barcode and, “These barcodes are written in such a way by these tattoos and tattoo artists, that if you scan that with your smart phone it’ll tell you she’s $25 or she’s $30. The one that I saw was $30,” he adds. Wilkett said he saw one such tattoo on a victim in her early 20’s who was staying in a safehouse. She told him, “That’s what I’m worth. I am worth $30,” Wilkett says.Natasha Nascimento, who is the founding executive director of Redefining Refuge, a local non-profit working with victims of child sex trafficking, said the majority of branding tattoos are done professionally.“The youngest child I’ve seen — I believe she was probably somewhere around 11-years-old — she had dollar signs… tattooed onto both of her eyelids,” says Nascimento.She suggests, “If somebody is coming in there with a child and telling you what tattoo the child is going to get, if it’s a barcode, money symbols, names, things like ‘Daddy,’ I would probably call in an abuse report, is what I would do.”Her organization is working with the Tampa Bay area tattoo artist community in order to help cover up tattoos for child sex trafficking survivors to help the recovery and healing process.If you believe you are a victim of Human Trafficking or suspect an adult is a victim of human trafficking, visit the National Human Trafficking Hotline, or call them at (888) 373-7888. If you suspect a child is a victim, call the Florida Abuse Hotline at (800) 96-ABUSE.

He has rushed for 335 yards and a 3.6 average this season with three touchdowns. The loss of McAllister would strike another blow in the Saints’ season. He signed a seven-year contract extension during the offseason that makes him one of the NFL’s highest-paid players. He is due to get $6 million this season. The Saints lost their home stadium when Hurricane Katrina damaged the Superdome in Louisiana. That forced the Saints to move their headquarters to San Antonio and some of their home games to the Alamodome. On Sunday, the Saints suffered their second-worst loss in team history. The 52-3 defeat at Green Bay is surpassed only by the 62-7 loss during the 1973 season against Atlanta in Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. “If that’s the case, a torn ligament, he’s out for the year,” Haslett said. “I feel bad first of all for Deuce. He’s worked hard to get to this point. He’s a great football player.” McAllister became the leading career rusher for the Saints earlier this season. He’s had three straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons plus three straight seasons with 30 or more receptions coming out of the backfield. “I have a lot of confidence in our team,” Haslett said. “We’ve overcome a lot in the past year and the last couple of months. “The loss against Green Bay was enough for a lifetime. Anytime you lose a player like Deuce, you have to have him surrounded by people who can pick up their game. Everybody has to play better.” Running back Najeh Davenport underwent season-ending surgery to repair his broken right ankle on Monday and the Green Bay Packers placed him on injured reserve. The Packers, who are off this weekend, probably won’t replace him on the roster until next week. “We’re going through our options, and we don’t feel compelled to fill the spot right away,” general manager Ted Thompson said. Thompson, who signed free agent running back ReShard Lee last week, said he wouldn’t necessarily sign another running back, either. The Miami Dolphins made a substantial offensive upgrade Monday, adding a certified yoga instructor and student of holistic medicine notorious for his shyness and mercurial behavior. Yes, Ricky Williams is back. Returning from a four-week suspension that followed a one-year retirement, Williams took part in the team’s brief walkthrough session. He’ll rejoin practice Wednesday and likely play Sunday at Tampa Bay –his first game since December 2003. Browns rookie receiver Braylon Edwards remained in a hospital Monday, recovering from surgery to eradicate an infection in his right arm that kept Edwards out of a 20-10 win over Chicago and could sideline him longer. The team was awaiting lab results to determine the nature of Edwards’ infection, which caused abnormal swelling near his elbow and prompted a team doctor to perform surgery Saturday. “I know the doctor was satisfied about the surgery he performed to clean out that infection,” Browns coach Romeo Crennel said. “After he looks at it, he was hoping it would show good progress and that he would be able to give us some kind of timetable as far as when Braylon may or may not be back.” For the first time in his career, linebacker LaVar Arrington didn’t play a snap while healthy. Coach Joe Gibbs said the defense didn’t use many reserves in a 21-19 loss because it was concerned about containing Denver’s tricky bootlegs. “We want LaVar to play,” Gibbs said. “This is just one of those games where we didn’t do a lot of substitutions.” Kelly Holcomb, who quarterbacked Buffalo to victory over Miami, could return to the bench next week. So says coach Mike Mularkey. “I’m going to leave it as it is,” Mularkey said, adding he believes the lack of an announcement will keep the Jets guessing heading to Sunday’s game. “We think it is an advantage as a team, when you have two different types of quarterbacks, to play it out as long as we can,” Mularkey said. “I think it’s an advantage regardless of what other people think.” Mularkey believes it may have worked to some degree in Buffalo’s 20-14 win over Miami on Sunday. Although word had filtered out that the Bills were switching from J.P. Losman to the veteran Holcomb, Mularkey refused to say who was starting right until gametime. Defensive back R.W. McQuarters could be switched to offense to help the Lions’ injury and suspension-depleted receivers corps. With Charles Rogers suspended and four wide receivers sustaining injuries in Sunday’s 35-17 victory over the Ravens, Detroit’s nickel back volunteered to fill in. “He said during the game that he’d go in, and he just grabbed me in the hall and said he was still ready,” Lions coach Steve Mariucci said Monday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN ANTONIO — Deuce McAllister likely will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Sunday at Green Bay. Saints coach Jim Haslett said Monday that the running back got a second opinion Monday in San Antonio. He’ll get a third opinion from Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., later this week.

klint finley Related Posts Even with conservative estimates, it’s easy to make the case that large call centers have customer influence on par with, if not greater than, that of mass advertising campaigns. (Assuming a call center with 3,000 agents and an average of only 50 calls per agent per day, a company has the opportunity to make 1.05 million personal connections each week — and 54.6 million each year.)What should be done?“Instead of sinking millions of dollars into call center technology projects, companies like American Express, Esurance, Lands’ End, and Zappos.com, which are known for delivering great call center experiences, have focused on creating a customer-centric call center culture,” Bodine writes.We’ve touched on this before, when covering Gartner’s analysis of CRM’s failure to improve customer satisfaction.More customers may turn to social media for support, but according to other Forrester research, few are doing so. Last year Zendesk Vice President of Product Management Maksim Ovsyannikov told us that the company is adding multichannel support options, citing Gartner research that over 60% of customer interactions still take place on the phone.There are technological investments that could enhance a call center. Some are smart, like Salesforce.com’s integration of Apple FaceTime. Some are kooky, like using predictive analytics to match a customer’s personality with a representative. And having slow computers or a bad phone system won’t help anything either. But it’s all secondary to having a good work environment for the customers on the front lines.Photo by Vitor Lima IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#Communications#enterprise “Call centers treat agents like slave labor,” writes Forrester analyst Kerry Bodine. She suggests that instead of spending money on the latest technology – cloud, mobile, social analytics and all that stuff we like so much – companies should invest more into their call center employees. Why invest in those employees, instead of advertising campaigns, better websites or social CRM? Because those call center workers reach more customers each month than any marketing campaign.
