Enjoy Sport, Luxury, and Efficiency with the Jaguar XE

As the least expensive Sedan offered by the brand, the Jaguar XE is proof that lowering cost does not mean compromising quality. It’s no secret that Jaguar is a brand often thought to be tailored for upper-class drivers. They provide some of the highest quality vehicles on the market and their prices have always been indicative of that. However, the shocking price of the new Jaguar XE is almost making the brand seem charitable. The XE was made for drivers who want the luxury and style aligned with the Jaguar experience, but are looking to pay a reasonable price. The best part is that regardless of price, the Jaguar XE is anything but average. In fact, it ranks at the top of the list in the sport sedan category, offering the thrill of a sports car with the practicality of a sedan. Offering the XE Diesel or XE S As of now, the Jaguar XE will be available in two options, (with another arriving shortly after): the 180-hp diesel or the driver’s choice, supercharged, 340-hp V-6 XE S. Either route you choose, driver satisfaction is nearly guaranteed. However, it is more likely that the XE S will be the crowd [...]

Prevent Senior Depression with In-Home Care Services

In-home care through Alliance Senior Care provides your elderly loved ones with companionship, an important element in combatting depression. It is becoming more and more evident that for many senior citizens, what was intended to be their golden years is turning out to be a time of struggling with isolation and depression. Home care service providers and family members of senior citizens witness this emotional decline first-hand. It isn’t easy to confront deteriorating health, mental health concerns, and diminishing independence. If a senior citizen’s living circumstances create a situation in which they are often alone, the chance of depression is even more substantial. Studies have found that depression among senior citizens can be linked to further medical issues. According to a report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) an average of 15%-20% of older adults are affected by minor depression. The study also shows that poor health can play a role in leading to depression, but is often preventable. In-Home Care Means More than Physical Health Though the main objective of in-home care services is to ensure that all medical requirements are being properly handled, there is another aspect to it as well. At Alliance Senior Care, we strive [...]

Knowing how we learn is just as important as what we learn

During our formal school years, knowing how we learn probably takes a back seat to the process of just cramming the facts. Late night cram sessions before the big quiz or final exam are commonplace on every college campus. Now that you’ve earned your diploma, in retrospect (and in all honesty), how much of that crammed information actually stayed glued to the cerebral cortex of the brain? If you’re like most of us, the names, dates, complex formulae and Latinized techno-babble disappeared long ago unless in later years it became vital to your work. There’s a reason for this disappearance act. Chief Learning Officer and Editor-in-Chief of Mike Prokopeak states in the April 2016 newsletter: “Showing your work [how you learned] is a stable of math teaching. It’s a crucial part of the scientific method, too.” Prokopeak points out that “showing your work is more than sound science. It’s solid life advice.” Prokopeak is referring to the human element or the journey along the way. Frequently in lean learning we talk about the importance of that journey. Some even define lean learning as an ongoing journey toward personal and professional improvement. Obviously, the journey would not be occurring if there were not a [...]

The 2017 Honda CR-V Improves on an Already Celebrated Crossover

The Honda CR-V continues to evolve year after year, poising to become the most beloved crossover in its class. When the crossover concept was introduced in 1996 by Toyota and Subaru, no one knew how successful this class would be. Just one year later, Honda released the first model of the CR-V after witnessing the demand for the Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Outback. Since then, the Honda CR-V has progressed into one of the most widely driven crossovers on the market. In fact, the CR-V was the best-selling utility vehicle in the United States in 2016. It’s safe to say that the crossover has established itself as a staple of family cars across the country. So rather than completely redesign the CR-V for its 2017 edition, Honda engineers decided to simply continue the process of evolution that’s been occurring since the release of the first model. Here is a little more information about the new CR-V, courtesy of Holmes Honda of Shreveport. Excellence from the Ground-Up With a reputation as a family driver, the Honda CR-V excels in both comfort and safety. Space is not a problem in the front or the back, with plenty of hip, leg and foot [...]

The Jaguar XE Delivers Sport, Luxury, and Efficiency

The Jaguar XE proves to customers that being the least expensive Sedan the brand offers does not mean quality needs to be compromised. Jaguar as a brand has never been well known for offering low-priced vehicles. They provide some of the highest quality products in the market and their prices have always been consistent with their product. However, the low price of the new Jaguar XE is almost making the brand seem charitable. This car was made for drivers who want the luxury and style of the Jaguar experience, but are looking to pay a reasonable price. The Jaguar XE is anything but average. It ranks at the top of the list in the sport sedan category, offering the thrill of a sports car with the practicality of a sedan. Choose Between XE Diesel or XE S For the time being, the Jaguar XE will be available in two options, (with another arriving shortly after): the 180-hp diesel or the driver’s choice, supercharged, 340-hp V-6 XE S. Either route you choose, you will be thoroughly satisfied, however, it is more likely that the XE S will be the crowd favorite. The XE S manages to keep its body to a [...]

Treating Abscessed Teeth

Professional Endodontics makes it a priority to stay up to date on the latest treatment methods and technologies to properly care for abscessed teeth. When experiencing ongoing pain in a tooth, it is important to consider the possibility that it might be something more serious than a simple toothache. If pain is paired with other symptoms like swelling in the gums or sensitivity when chewing, you may have an abscessed tooth. An abscessed tooth “occurs when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, dies and becomes inflamed and goes untreated.” - If you think that you might have an abscessed tooth, it is a good idea to consult an endodontist. At Professional Endodontics, our doctors are ready to collaborate with you to make a reliable diagnosis and develop the best treatment plan possible to avoid tooth extraction. Treating Abscessed Teeth An abscessed tooth is an infection that occurs within the tooth as the tooth’s nerve is dying or becoming infected. The infection begins at the tip of the tooth’s root, eventually spreading to the surrounding bone if not properly treated. To receive prompt and proper treatment, it is best to consult an endodontist as soon as pain seems [...]
