How well can truck drivers actually sleep?

A truck driver pulls out in front of you late one night -- or early in the morning -- as he leaves the truck stop. You follow the massive vehicle for a few miles, and you cannot help but notice that the driver repeatedly swerves off the side of the road. As soon as the truck hits the rumble strip on the side, the driver pulls back into the lane, but it's clear that something is wrong.

After a while, you realize that the driver is simply exhausted. He's swerving off of the road because he's about to fall asleep behind the wheel.

How do you know if your child has cerebral palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a serious condition that can lead to a life-long disability for a child. Even so, it is not always immediately clear if the child has the disorder at birth. Parents need to know what to look for as the child grows up to see the earliest signs and find out what options they have.

Generally speaking, medical experts note that parents often see signs in the very first months that the child is alive and a doctor can make a diagnosis. However, there are also cases where a doctor does not make the diagnosis until the child is two years old or even older. This delay, and what is seen by the parents as a sudden change -- even though the child has had the disorder all along -- can be difficult to understand.

Phone addiction and dangers on the roads

You can make distracted driving illegal. You can tell people to put their phones away. You can warn them that distraction causes accidents and takes lives.

As long as people still feel addicted to their phones, though, it's going to remain a risk. People are going to break laws, take chances, ignore risks and cause accidents.

The heartbreaking cause of most childhood deaths

No parent ever wants to consider that their child may pass away, but the unfortunate reality is that this does happen every day in the United States. Children face a lot of risks and many injuries become fatal. You cannot put a number on the loss this represents for the parents.

The first step to preventing these deaths is to understand why they happen. To start, you need to know that the top cause of death for children is simple: accidental injury.

Skin cancer is far more than just a dark mole

When people ask how to spot skin cancer, doctors often tell them to look for a dark mole with an asymmetrical shape. It may grow and change over time. It may have started as a normal mole and then gotten darker or larger. It may seem to have appeared out of nowhere.

This is good advice. You absolutely want to listen to your doctor, and you need to meet with a dermatologist as soon as possible if you think you may have skin cancer. Do not put this off. It's often easily treatable at first, but it can turn deadly if it gets ignored for too long.

Potential risk factors for birth injuries

When doctors help you deliver your child, they need to be aware of some of the potential risk factors that could lead to a birth injury. If they overlook these risk factors, it could lead to mistakes that cause life-long injuries or even take the life of the mother or the child. Doctors must not be negligent, they must be aware and alert, and they must give the mother and the child the level of care that they deserve.

The risk factors

Do you have to close your business when a partnership ends?

You feel like you're going through a divorce, even though you're not married. The problem is your business partner. The two of you started working together five years ago, and it is clear to you that the relationship has come to an end. You can't go on anymore, and you plan to end the partnership.

Does that mean your company has to close its doors? Is the dream over? Do you have to start from scratch?

Is fast shipping making the roads more dangerous?

It's proudly touted as a perk with major online sellers: free two-day shipping. Buy it today and it will be on your front step two days from now.

In the past, people didn't like online shopping because of the delay. Waiting seven to 10 days just felt too long. With two-day shipping, though, the game changed. Now, unless someone was considering driving to a brick and mortar store that very night, it's actually just as fast to buy something online.

Urgency can lead to medical mistakes

If you've ever spent time in a hospital, you know that medical professionals often appear to be in a hurry. They work in a fast-paced environment. They rush from room to room, from procedure to procedure. When a call comes in, they hurry to the next appointment.

This is even more pronounced in an emergency room or another part of a hospital dealing with emergency procedures. Things like this are impossible to predict and harder to prepare for. Doctors cannot count on a set schedule and have to react to the current crisis.

Documentary explores reasons for medical errors

How much do you trust your doctor? How comfortable do you feel going in for surgery? Are you confident that the medical team will give you the best possible results?

These days, people are starting to wonder, despite advances in medical science. The reason is that reports have shown just how common serious mistakes still are. In the Information Age, it's easy for statistics and stories to make the rounds, and people generally do not go to the hospital with the naive idea that the staff has such a high level of professionalism that no one will make a mistake.
